THE DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL, SALEM, OREGON, THURSDAY, AUGUST 7. IMP.
Imparts the Touch of Prosperity
ipeed and the
Forty-eight hours after cattle are
purchased by Swift &. Company they are
hanging up as meat; within two weeks
the fresh meat has been sold.
This speed means money in the
pocket of the one who raises the live stock
and of the one who eats the meat It
means a rapid "turnover" of capital and
investment making possible the trans
action of daily business on a narrower
margin of profit.
Speed permits Swift & Company to do
a successful business on a profit of a frac
tion of a cent per pound.
Such speed, with its rapid turnover
and smaller profits would be impossible
without the efficient organization and
wide scope of Swift & Company, the results
of fifty years' experience in handling meat.
Do you believe that government inter
ference with the complicated and efficient
machinery of the packing industry can
be of any benefit? Experience with
government regulation of railroads and
telephone and telegraph might suggest

that Director Hines has authority to fix
