BEEF PROFIT
Texas Cattlemen SeekiDg to Find
7 "' Who Gets Big End Of
r '- Deal.
San Antonio, Tex ,' October 28-
Backed by 8000 members of the Texas
Cattle" Kaiser's Association and 300,000
Texas farmers, who together own 9,
000,000 head of cattle and who annual
ly marker' more than 1,00,000 head,
Ed, (X taster, president of that asso
ciation, bas started a light to more
equitably distribute the 300 per cent
profit which, it is alleged, is now realii
ed from the time the beef steers leaves
the hands of the producer until he reach
es the consumer.
It is charged by Lasater that the
greater portion of this enormous profit
goes into the' coffers of. the packers.
While the" packers are growing richer
and richer and the consumer is paying
more and more for his ' beef, ; figures
how that the producers of cattle are
receiving less for their output, beef
steers often selling for less than (he
cost of production. The ' movement
launched by Lasater, and which will be
made nation wi le, seeks to know why
the pi ice of beef goes up when the price
of cat tie goes down. - ,'.f-
At the conferencs it was shown that
it costs $21.06 ti raise a yearling steer
on the range, and that by the time the
Bierrn or age ana in conauion ror
butchering the average cost is $73.09
Lasater recently marketed 279 head anc
received an average of ?19.2l, less than
the actual cost a head for production.
This condii ion means tuir to cattle pro
ducers, vrhe steer which cost the pack
er $54.28 is sold to the consumer at
close to $165 gross. Who gets this 300
per cent additional is what the produc
ers, as well as consumers, are anxious
to find out. - '
To fight effectively the great packers
with their millions of dollars of capital,
the Texas cattle producers and the con
sumers of beef have decided on the or
ganization of the Texas Cattle Raisers'
Sales liirecthg Agency, With a capital
stock of $3,000,000. The principal office
wil' be in "ort Woth, with branch of
fices in St, I.ouU and Chicago. The pur
pose is to assist the producer in getting
better prices for his cattle, hogs, sheep
and calves and to instruct him regard -ing
the greater market.
The Texas Cattle Rafters' Association
will subscribe $1,500 000 of the stock.
This hmount will be obtained by levy
ing $1 a h art on the cattle turned over
to the association. : The
remainder 0f
the $0,000,000 will be subscribed by oth
rr interests. It will work In the same
nanrer as the Truck Growers' Astocia
1 ion of this slat, which has saved mil-,
lions of dollars annually to gardeners.
, In addition to forming the sale agen
cy, Texas producers ill urge the at
torney general of the United States to
become" mora active in pushing the
cases now pending against the beef
t ut Bi:uing the fight Lasater
aid; -"The cattlemen are at the mercy
of the packers in marketing becau e
"the packers control the stock yards. If
lha selling agency does n it produce the
result we anticipated, we will go into
the packing business oui Ives.- Plenty
of capital can be obtained for that pur
pose.' Thi price at whuh ment is now
old is the snrne at all the packing
houses, showing conclusively' that a
trust exists,"

DELIVERED LEGT
. DRE LAST NIGHT
! Judge O. P. Smith Delivered A
Striking Address At Chris-
. - - tian Science Church. .
' Judge Clifford P. Smith, of Boston, a
member of the Board of Lectureship of
the Mother Church, the First Church of
Christ Scientists, delivered' a striking
address ' at -. the Christian ; Science
Church in this city last night on "'Chris
tian Science. ;'. '''.'',
The beautiful edifice was packed' and
everyone thoroughly - enjoyed Judge
Smith's interesting and instructive dis
course. He said; "". -
"It is my purpose to speak to you
this evening on "The Reil Man
and His Relation to God " At the
outset I wish to remind you that there
was a time ' in every - stage of human
progress when wisdom was with the
minority. A true idea is always per
ceived by one person, then received by
a few. and afterward adopted by a sub
stantial minority before it find favor
with the majority.
It may be assumed, I suppose, that
no one in this audience disbelieves in a
power or cause higher than himself.
One who denies the existence of a su
preme intelligent Being is said to be an
atheist. But such persons are rare; in
mo it cases ' ths supposed atheist ha
simply not been satisfied with any par
ticular concept of God and man that
his been brought to his attention.- A
better concept, or t.he true one, may
find him entirely willing to accept it,
A man does not need to be very scion
title or very religious to feet that he is
intermediate in the scale of existence
superior to some effects but subordinate
to the primordial substance or cause,
b'gner than some creatures but lower
tnan the creator. This is a fact mado
evident by reason as well as revelation.
Mere observation discovers the ex is
tence of laws which manifestly proceed
from a power, an intelligent source,
higher than man. The turning of the
earth upoa its axis, the coming of a
good thought into consciousness, these
diverse facts. ..both illustrate vtfce
operation of law; the instance the act
ion of a Mitd which is superior to man.
The most "fundamental fact in human
experience is consciousness; and this
necessarily must havea P incipte. Since
man possesses consciousness, he must
be related to the Principle of conscious
ness; and Christian Scinnca declares
this Principle to be God, the divine
Mind of which man is the mental and
spiritual expression.
Not only do men intuitively believe in
a Being or Mind higher than them
selves, they also expect to live upon a
higher plane of existence than is visible
to the physical senses. We have no
reason to be satisfied with the life which
seems to begin from mortal birth, which
appears to include all evil fear, fail
ure, sin. sickness, deformity, disabiT
ty, suffering, sorrow and to end in
death. In fact, we no longer accept
all the testimony about man that we
get through the five senses. For exam
ple, life seems to end in death, but who
believes that it does? We see a change,
we lose sight of a friend or loved one;
wo consign a body to a grave or its ash
es to an urn; but we have faith, we
knw, that the life of the individual
continues. , ' ?
' So also, the assurance of things hoped
for, the evidence of things, not teen,
tells us of an existence for man which
in every respect far transcends the life
xl mortals. It is unthinkable that man
should always and forever continue to
be a bundle of contradictions, a mix
ture of opposite qualities, a meeting of
conflicting forces, as he appears to be.
Every man, whether he looks for sal
vation or for evolution, expects some
thing better than this. , ;i
Christian Science dec'ares that min's
brightest hope for a better life in the
h 'realtor cannot exceed what is in fact
the present reality of life; that mortal
existence is a Btat of ignorance and
false belief based on a material sense
of things; that the actual! y is a condi
tion of purity, completnn. ss, joy, har
mony, and goodness a perfect state of
mental and spiritual activity, a con
sciousness free iro n err r or evil; an
eternal identity determine .1 by Mind or
Spirit, not by matter. And Chri-itian
Science declares that this true selfhood

Although immediate and lasting ben
efits resulted from ,the gospel or good
news brought to. the World by Christ
Jesus, it can still ha said even of Chris
tians, as St. Paul Bald of other Gen
tiles, that they are "alienated frrm the
life of God through the ignorance that
is In them." After nearly twenty cen
turies Christendom si ill suffers every
tvit thing and puts Its faith in a life to
be gained after death. .In the last
quarter of the nineteenth century, when
Mrs. Eddy published her text book,
''Science and Healih with Key to Scrip
tures," the knowledge called science
was entirely separate from the knowl
edge called Christianity, and their only
tendency to unite wai upon a material
basis that of evolution in matter. The
worship of the Father in Spirit and in
Truth was mire and more neglected,,
while. no less than, physical scientists
accepted tSrateriarUi8orics as -truth, tit
was genei ally agreed that man was
born of matter and that some material
Jaw would cause bis death, unlets this
might be postponed for a time by re
course to some other law of m ltter. In
short, matter the opposite of Spirit
was universally regarded as substance,
and as the source and seat of intelli
gence, law and life.
This was the scene upon which Chris
tian Science , entered. Some person
are not dispose d to consider this science
seriously because it was not not discov
ered by either a physical sci ntint or a
doctor of divinity. But .St John, for
instance, was not gradu ited from a
theological school, and there is no rea
son why the vision of spiritual reality
should com 9 to those scientists whose
researches are confined to the elements,
properties and phenomena of matter
It is more reasonable to expect that un
derstanding will come to those who are
gaining the mind of Christ. .
: For these reasons there is nothing
abnormal in the fact that the world has
gained an accession of actual knowl
i dge through Mary Baker Eddy. She
was brought tin in the atmosphere of
piety and devoutness thit psrvaded a
New England home of nearly a century
ago. From childhood she was a pro
found student of the Scriptures. She
was compassionate, helpful, spiritual;
she was a Christian in the bt-Bt sense of
that name. She had become accus
tomed to ponder the large problems of
human affairs. She had grown in lie
love for God and neighbor until her de
sire and aspiration were to heal and t
save. She had turned away from mat
ter to spirit with an unusual degree of
understanding. : Ii these circumstan
ces, the normal i paration of divine law
enabled Mrs. Eddy to discern the true
nature of God and His universe, inclu
ding man, and to understand the prob
lem presented I y the apparent exist
ence of evil in tpite of infinite good.
' Ti e attitude 6t exiiting churches to
ward her message mado it necessary
for Mrs. Eddy to found new church:
but !h Church of Chiist, Scientist, haa
gained n embers only as those who have
come to hristian Science have gained
tie ter life. Surely there la no causa
for offence In this. It la the object of
all churches, and nine of them need
fuel a loss when a man finds in Chris-
tian Science whit he could not, or even
did not, find elsewhere. ,
Mrs. Eddy never sought a personal
, ment she consistently turned the atten-
jtion of Christian Scientists away from
herseit to ins message irom uoa . to
man which was spoken through her.
Her aim and hope, as she oftt n said,
were to "q iickn and increase the ben
eficial effects of Christianity" (Science
and Health,, page 807; M scellaneous
Writing, page 207). The spirits! vital
ity of her mf ssage is proved by what it
has already accomplished; but this ia
only a .foretaste of the benefits (hat
will accrue to humanity as the Science
is more widely understood and prac
ticed." , ' .

the weekly reports of the mercantile
agencies speak of a quickened move
ment in the dry goods trade. . It is be
lieved that in some quarters the crop is
being over estimated and the world's
consumption under-estimated.
It is also believed that spinners' tak
ings this year are not on'ikery to run
considerably ahead of the actual con
sumption, owing to the relatively low
prices. ' bears, however, are talking of
an ultimate decline to much lower lev
els on the idea that the crop is 15,000,-

be considerably lees tHan this figure in

WHY ITALY 0C-
GHPIES TRIPOLI
Private Interests Finally Force
. s Government Military
' Action.
Rome, Oct 28 In America there
seems to be much difficulty in getting a
clear understanding of the war between -Italy
and Turkey. . Italy has made no
explanation to the world of her motives
er provocations. She could aot do so
very well, because the reasons are more
subtle than apparent Yet reasons ex
ist ' In a few words it may be said that
the people of Italy have for years been
quietly invading. Tripoli and taking pos
session. When these people met with
annoyances and 'petty tyrannies the
mother country stepped in. .
Napoleon I., when he took Lombardy
from Sardinia, generously offered the
pirate infested cost of Btrbary in ex
change. Bismark, Napoleon III,, and
Palmare ton almost begged the Italians
to take it But Italian statesmen were
too nervous. Crispi refused, and in
connection with the proposal uttered
the famous pharse, "My name is To
morrow." Every foreign minister af- .
ter Crispi refused, including Canevaro,
Visconti - Venosta, Prinetti, Tittoni.
Guicciardini. and even on December
2, 1910, the pre. ent minister of foreign
affjirs, the Marquis di San Giuiiano, de-'
dared "Italy wishes that Tripoli shall
reman Turkish. , j
But private people and big moneyed
interests we-e'at work to accomplish
what the government had failed to do.
The uanca di Roma, which, as is well
known, is a powerful Vatican financial
concern, stepped into the branch, and
it is safe to say that four fifths of the
trade of 'Tripoli is now controlled by
that bank, n ,
The peaceful penetration accomp'ish-
ed in the past few years by this bank
baa been greatly aided by the Francis
an and Capuchin monks, who, by the
establishment of schools, lycees and die
rensaries, havr given a position to It
aly io Tripoli second only to the native
Arab element a fittipg pretext for a
military occupation.
Ittliu is the general language spoken
among European officials and residents.
Italian newspaoers are generally read,
Italian post offices are established at
every port and are used, for preference
by the Turkish officials. The steamship
services between' Europe and the porta
of Tripoli are io the hands of two Ital
ian companies and the coastal. service
also. Practically all the hospitals and
dispensaries were established by' Ital
ians. The Italian dispensary at Derna
last year treated 27,000 cases, and the
three Turkish dispensaries opened la
opposition are now closed.
If there is a road to be constructed,
while the manual labor is native, the
engineer in charge is always Italian. .
The greater portion of land in the hands
of Europeans belongs to Italians
