Wold, manugor of the commercial research depart ment of Swift and company testified today before the senate agricultural committee where the bill is under consideration. . "The main objection to the Mil," Mr. Weld said, "Is In the' fact that It was baed upon reports of the fed eral trade rninmlslon which are sat urated with glaring Inaccuracies and misstatements... "The Kenyon bill must either In terfere with tho farmers end of meat production, or with the packers' part of the business If designed to arfcet the high cost of living," he alcl. "If the farmer Is hit, lie will cut down production, which will bring hlghor stock prices. If the pucker Is hit and his business crip pled, the result will be higher manu facturing coats, and these too will have to be passed on." . Mr. Weld paid his respocts to Com missioner Colrer of the trade com mission, remarking that "many of his statements here were exaggerated and Inaccurate." Swift and com pany owned no retail stores in Eng land, and Mr. Weld said he had been unable to find that any other Ameri can packer did so.

Mr. Colver peralxtontly Ignored the number of packing con cerns In business, in this country. iSomo 235 concerns are engaged In Inter-state business besides the big packers.

Great Invention The Daily Like another Jules Verne tale seoms the idea of telegraphing pic-; tures.

The inven tion has just become available for newspaper use; - and, the Courier, anxious to give its subscribers not only 'up-to-date news, but also the pictures of things s they happen, has made arrangements to have its pictures telegraiphed. The greatness of this Invention will, be realized more thoroughly when It Is understood that the Cour ier will publish pictures of fire scenes, railroad wrecks, auto races, action pictures, aeroplane races, por traits of people of sudden promi nence, launching of ships, murder scenes, maps, court scenes, yacht races, escaped criminal's photograph, parades, riots, prize fights, baseball scenes, players In action, etc, on the day after they happen, instead of many days later, s is the case when pictures come by mall To newspaper men and newspaper subscribers, the chief interest in this wonderful Invention lies in the fact that it gives them the 'world's news 'n pictures immediately no a '-veek I WILL COMBAT THE H.

But this great invention, which the Courier readers are to have the ben efit of, has many far-reaching uses. Suppose a' criminal escapes. . His picture can be flashed to the far corners of the earth In a few min utes, making it impossible for him to get anywhere without his picture preceding ihim. Important signa tures can be telegraphed Tele - grams can be sent In the Identical handwriting of the sender. Ameri can dressmakers, especially those in the west, will find great interest in having pictures of what Madame so-and-so wore today in 'Parts:' Import ant designs, maps and photograpmS can be quickly telegraphed to the place where needed. iSeginnlng on or about September 1st, the Dally Courier will publish these telegraphed pictures tele- photographs, at they' will be called. On an average, three will appear each week not on certain days, but as events happen. Sometimes we may publish two. a day, and again we may go three or four days without any. But the lmprotant thing Is this: Through the aid of this wonderful Invention, the Courier 'will give its subscribers the pictures of all things of national interest as quickly, as the wires can flash them to us.
