federal court, is an extremely edifying spectacle. Veeder today produced the records leading up to the formation of the National Packing company. He was question by Attorney Pierce Butler, for the government. Butler, first, attempted to find out what the name of the association under which the packers met was. Veeder said at first he did not remember any .name. Butler wished to know how the meeting were called, in that case. Veeder said the meetings were not called under any name, but by communications addressed to "P. O. Box 247?" Veeder said that was the only name ever used by the secretary either in calling meetings, or in referring to meetings. Veeder then told how the "Big Three' (the Armour group, the Swift group, and the Morris group) decided early in 1902 that they would form a huge trust. . He told of the application to Harriman of a loan of $90,000,000 which was needed by the packers to buy up a number of competing companies. v He said that the whole proposition was put up...

ments showed that one of the National Packing company subsidiaries lost $1,500,000 in one year, it actually made a profit of $5,000 in the three years before the loan was repaid. Sidelights 'were also shown on the amiable' way in which the packers believed in each other today. Two companies, The Bimbler, Van Wagner & Co of Newark, N. J., and the L. M. Anthony Co., of Fall River, Mass., were local companies, which were controlled by Gustavus Swift. When the proposal for the combine came, one of the first suggestions made at a meeting of "P. O. Box 247" was' that Swift should sell these companies to the combine. '"It was proposed that Mr: Swift sell these properties so he could not obstruct a business in which he had "been concerned," said Veeder. ' "What do you mean by 'obstruct?' " asked Attorney Butler. "I don't know," replied Veeder, "unless I mean 'interfere with.' " A little more questioning by Butler brought out that what Mr. Veeder meant was that the .Armour and Mo...

The chief said to the witness: "Such men as you (meaning Foster) are worse than the lowest dogs, taking money from girls, and paying it out to protect your vice." Foster said that when he asked Chief McWeeny what he thought of Wheeler and the others charged with accepting the graft the chief replied they were worse if they took it. The witness did not say that he had ever said protection money directly to Inspector Wheeler, but charged. Wheeler with getting a part of that paid to Bonfield. "I went to Wheeler's office and told him I wanted to run," he said. "He told me I couldn't. I said I had paid protection money to Bonfield, and that he had got his share of it.

-THE NEWSPAPERS ON STREET CAR SERVICE . The Chicago Journal has lately been taking a daily slam at the traction interests. The Examiner, on Tuesday, said : "The elevated interests are now paying the penalty of initial overcapitalization and utter failure to maintain their properties on a good service basis. The city will not j)ay their depreciation bills witha-stroke of the pen. "Worse still, the elevated interests have not even kept their pledges of service betterments as a rsult of their recent" financial merger. They have broken their pledge to install through routes and give transfers. "In dealing wtih these people the city "cannot forget that the worst overcrowding on any of the city's traction lines is on the elevated roads and that it is deliberate, since, there are now no obstacles to immediate through routes. "It was one of Yerke's favorite tricks to make service as bad as possible in order that public clamor would coerce the Council into new franchisei bounties. It is an o...

aware of the rotten service they get, for good money, and don't need 'editorials to tell them something they already know. But, just the same, it's refreshing occasionally, to read something in these papers that shows they are finding out that there are people in existence outside of the advertising field. Some people will wonder why v the Journal, Examiner and Tribune, if they were on the level, didn't keep up a daily hammering on the traction company to give the people what they were paying for. ' . Can it be that they are now hammering rotten street car conditioners a blind behind which to push the subway job through before the people 'wake up and assert their right to a voice in"vhat is to 'be done.

'! i beginner, he usually covers Tiis face, leaving his body the most vulnerable part exposed. There are several methods of defense, some being peculiar to individuals, but the three most important are blocking, ducking and sidestepping. To block a blow, use the right arm, when possible. Always remember this arm is mainly for defense and the left chiefly for delivering punches. When a blow is started and you mean to block it, shoot the right arm up so it catches your opponent's punching arm, under the forearm. This lifts his arm from its course and swings him around a trifle. Watch this shifting action. It usually puts a man in position for you to deliver an effective punch. Keen sight is necessary in blocking, for you must figure u stantly where the blow is aimed, especially if your opponent uses a punch like the famous "corkscrew," which seems to be aimed for oife place, only to land at another. It will be hard to judge blows at first, but the knack win soon come to you. When defe...

The plan, which t has been recommended by the public policy committee of the National Electrict Light Association, provides that the entire annuities be paid by the company, without any contribution on tht part of the employes. It provides also that the annuities shall not be considered any part of the wages of the employes nor any philanthropic scheme of the company.

ous service is trie price demanded to get on the pension roll. Small wages, long hours and bad conditions must be put up with. If the' employes object either as individuals or collectively, they get canned, and the continuous service pension requirement becomes impossible. Who has been the gainer? No one has ever claimed that any corporation advocating or contemplating the adoption of any pension scheme was actuated by philanthropic motions, big business being noted for driving hard bargains. "Briefly stated the plan divides the employes into three classes those who have reached the age of 55 years and have thirty years' or morecontinuous service to their credit; those who have reached the age of 60 years with fifteen years' servicer and those who have reached -the age of 65 years with fifteen years' service to their credit."
