THE BEEF TRUST
<> i MELBOURNE, December 2. The report of the Eoy;ii Commission on the operations of the Boef Trust in Australia has been tabled in the House tonight. It finds that American companies trading in the United Kingdom which belong to the group known ns the Beef Trust have been purchasers of Austrahan meat through distributing agents abroad for a considerable period, and since the import dutv on meat was removed in the United States last year these companies and others engaged in the trade in the United States made purchases in Australia and elsewhere for shipment to the United States. All these purchases were made in the ordinary course of business, and nothing they got was purchased under other than ordinary competition.
