Butchers Unless they are allowed to continue buying iheate from the wholesale pack lng houses Chattanooga restaurant keepers say they may be forced to in crease the prices on their bills of fare Keepers of ths restaurants and calcs say that all packing houses have recently refused to sell them meats virtually forcing them to pay higher prices at tha getall meat markets This condition It Is said may lead to the opening of an Independent packing house that will cater to the supply of ths restaurants and hotels It Is asserted in some quarters that ths recent action of the packer has been prompted by the practice of some of the larger butchers and restaurant of buying their masts from other cities Shipments of meat to tljese places have come from Kansas City StlLouls find Clhclnnatl and In soma Instances restaurants era openly advertising Their Bay Trade Unprofitable Packers bold- that inasmuch as their business Is wholesale the small quantity of meat demanded by tha cafe is not only unprofitable but unfair to tbs retail markets was coming to ths point" said tb manager of om packing bouse "where they would soon be wanting us to slice pork chops for them "In tbs small quantities they'ordered It did not pay us' to send a truck We do1 not pay retail license and therefore cannot cater to the sort of trad tht demands such small quantities as a pound of butter or two pounds of sausage We will continue to sell to anyone who uses sufficient quantity to justify a wholesale pries but we can not run a bqtcber Proprietors of some cafes however declare the action to be a move on the part of the packer to boost prioes and to check tbe practice of the larger con-turner of buying meats from other cities The Immediate effect they say has been to Increase their coat on meets from 05 to 60 per cent For ex ample they now pay 45 cent for ham which -formerly cost 22 cent and 80 cents for steak which formerly cost 17 cents CHINESE GENERAL AND 4 EXECUTED Peking Jan (A

East Chattanooga-Silverdale road should be made state aid project and its construction should be carried out after the important projects slready under way fn the county are completed This in substance is ths action taken by directors of the chamber of commerce in session Wednesday morning This road was turned down last year by the voters who refusedjto approve a bond issue of $225000 for the project It was pointed ou that while the road will prove an asset to the county there aie certain other state 'aid and important county road projects underway which should be completed before a nevy road is started and that under no condition should funds be diverted from these other undertakings No vote is necessary if it becofnes a state road The chamber of commerce went on record to aid the East Chattanooga boosters in every way possible to secure tje making of this road a state aid project and in line with this action a committee was named composed of President Mercer Reynolds Hubble and 8 Honsky to go to Nashville and urge Gov Horton to so designate the road The matter was first presented to the chamber of commerce for Indorsement at the last meeting a committee composed of Chapin and Mdrcer Reynolds being named to Investigate and make recommendations Mr Reynolds presented the report for the committee in the absence of Mr Chapin The committee report was then adopted Urges Co-epsration In making the report Mr Reynolds 'stated In part: "Your committee made a very careful study of the imposition and In the opinion of oth Mr Chapin and me the chamber of commerce should co-operate with these people for state aid for this road We suggest that a committee be appointed to go to Nashville to persuade Gov Horton to carry out a promise of the late Gov Peay I am reliably Informed that Gov Peay made such a promise "The committee does not feel that the county should or would put up the money at the present time There are some other highways which have the preference These other projects should not be delayed but they Should be carried out to completion recognize this road la an important thing It would shorten the distance to Chattanooga from that Action toward Tyner by about two miles The committee finds that some excellent work has been done on getting right of way and that this work la complata except lor two amall stripe of landa We recommend that the road be under-dertaken as soon as It can be financed I do not think It Is the function of the chamber of commerce to tell our officials exactly when they should under take construction They have their work to be done and they have not the finances at the present time to complete the roads already started" The new proposed road has Its city and at Third street and passes

responsibility for carrying out the enlarged chamber program at once This was referred to a committee on by-laws headed by Borisky Against Madden Bill The chamber of oommerce will voice Ita opposition to ths Madden bill' by wire to ths congressmen from this section It was decided President Reynolds stated that there le danger of bringing about ths postponement of upper Tennessee river developments for another nine years if this bill which he charged Is In reality ths cynemld bid for Muscle Bhoaie is adopted by congress He pointed out that ths bill gives ths government right to etart work on Cove creek and certain other dams within a period of four years If chooses while If ths government doss not start work ths cyqamld company la given another flv years in which to start work This might mean another delay of nine years Mr Reynolds was instructed to wire the congressmen to the effect the chamber la opposed to any disposition of Muscle Shoals which will delay Tennessee river
