St. Louis, Mo Aug. 15. Twenty
million pounds of meats wen re
ported to bare been seized Ute to
day when federal authorities raided
th Booth Cold Storage company
Largo stocks of eggs, cheese and
other foodstuffs were also said to
have been located.
Officials had not yet learned who
owVied the stocks. Account of the
supplies taken had not been com
pleted. Columbus, Ohio, Aug. !". Governor
Cox of Ohio, today asked United States
Attorney General Palmer . to seize
2,420,000 pounds of meats stored in Ohio
ljy several big Chicago packers on the
charge of "wilful violation and open
defiance of tho law."
Cox said the meat was owned by
Swift 4 company, Morris 4 company,
Wilson 4 company tind Brant 4 com
jiuny. The governor urged Palmer to
take immediate action to seize the meat
to prosecute the packers. In addition,
.12 affidavits charging twenty three dif
ferent Ohio persons with violations of
the state cold Btorage net were signed
and sent out for service.
''Our investigation shows unmistak
able evidence not only of wilful viola
tion and even defiance of law on the
part of the large packing houses par
ticularly, bnt W have discovered that
food supplies have been shipped from
Chicago to Cleveland, returned again to
Chicago and reshipped back to Cleve
land. To what extent this process hns
lieen carried on, we do not yet know,
but it is manifestly the pait of a policy
f raTued and shaped, by the Chicago pack
ers for the double purpose of deceiving
Hie authorities In Ohio and Illinois mid
keeping food necessities off the mar
ket in order that deficiency ami higher
prices might come together.
"In liehulf of the public interest, I
not only urge you to seize this food at
once, but surest that you receive from
the authorities of this state evidence
now in hand, upon which I believe crim
inal prosecution can be had against the
executive hends of the large packing
corporations, who .certainly are respnn
sible for tho artful and unlawful prtic
tice of destroying in the first instance
the law of supply and demand and then
defrauding the consumers."
