Beef Trust Wants Tariff
Removed Because j&ef
Is Getting Scarce
CHICAGO. Oct. 19. The . Ameri
can Packers, who are in session here,
will probably urge tbe abolitiou of i
tbe tariff on meats unless tbe cat lei
raisers of the west do something to
relieve the preseut comparative short- j
age cf cuttle.
This Iv as the prediction made to- !
day bv tieueral Michael tiyan.the pre-
ideut of the American Packem Assocl
Htion. In mi interview with tue I'nit
ted t'ress he said " The coo.utry is
confronted with a shortage of meat
and if the present shrinkage contin
ues there will not be enough. Unless
more cattle Hie raised it is u sure
thing that thw tarill' will! have to lie
removed. Argentine is shipping beef
to Englahd aud this ia being sold at
reasonable prices. Without the tariff
the greater part of tbe shipments
I could be diverted to 'his country.
If all of tbe packers joined iu a peti
tion for tne removal of tbe tariff it
would uot be a difficult matter to
have it removed." ' !
