They are charged with conspiracy
in limiting the supply of meat and
poultry. The indictment is drawn
under the law of New Jersey, which
provides upon conviction a maximum
penalty of "three years In the peniten-
tiary or a $1000 fine or Iboth. The of-
fense is extraditable, which means
that practically all meat barons of
this country must either successfully
resist extradition or coime to Jersey
City for trial.
The Indictment, which bristles in
its arraignment of the mien named,
also refers to "divers other®" a® toe-
ing responsible. These latter, how-
ever, are not specified.
The foregoing list of names, it will
be seen, represents the very back-
bone cf the great packing industry of
this country, containing, as it does,
wo Armours, three Swifts and two
Morrises, and all, for the most part,
residents of Chicago, together with

climax the first concerted effort in

The indictment goes on to state
that more driblets ofthe supply were
put on the market at stated intervals,
small quantities' agreed upon by the
defendants thus 0 curtail and restrict
the supply "for the purpose of ficti-
tiously, arbitrarily and unlawfully In-
creasing prices to the puiblic."
No attempt is made to recite the
lass alleged to have been sustained
by the puiblic by this alleged creation
of artificial prices, but warehouses

this mean®, it Is charged, the defend-
ants were successful in keeping off
the markets large quantities oif meat
and poultry which, if ptu on the mar-
ket, would have been sufficient to
meet the reasonable demand.
