THE WAY IT SPREADS.
Dr. Salmon Tells Ifnw Pfsuro-rneamonla
ts Carried Into the West.
Washington, D. C, April 13. Dr. Sal
mon, t'.o Chief of tho Bureau of Animal In
dustry, calls attention to two new features
of tbe cattle business, which greatly In
crease the chances of pleuro-pneumonla ob
taining a hold on the Western ranges. "So
long as there was little, if any, movement
of cattle from tlia Infected districts of the
East toward the uninfected States of the
West," he says, "the plague was not car
ried across the Alleghany Mountains. The
earlier shipments consisted mostly of thor
oughbred animals, and these went from
herds the owners of which had a repe
tition lo sustain, and consequently, In
the raro Instances where such birds
had Hecome infected, no shipments
wero wide. More recently large numbers of
Eastern cslves have been going to the West,
gathered up at first from Ohio, Western
New York and Western Pennsylvania, but
as tho demand becomes larger and the price
Increases they are drawn from further and
further East, until now some of them are
obtained dangerously near the Infected dis
tricts. "A trade far more dangerous, how
ever," continued Dr. Salmon, "has been
built up largely within the last two cr three
years. It consists In buying grade Jersey
cattle wherever they can be found tbe
cheapest, and carrying them to the West,
where they are scattered among valuable
herds, and are even sent by the
car-lotd to the plains of Texas.
The prices have ruled so high for surii
animals In the various Western States, snd
there have been such large profits In the
business that the whole Eastern section of
the United States has been linnted over foi
grade Jerseys. At first they were taken
from the New England States, but as the
demand Increased and the supply in these
sections was exhausted, dealers turned to
the Infected sections where ther could buy
even cheaper, hoping by their shrewdness to
escape low. With any other disease this
might be possible, but with the insidious
and deceptive lung plague it was only a
question of tlmo when it would
be carried to Uie West" To this
last mentioned traffic Dr. Salmon
says the Western breeders may attribute all
the trouble of last summer and fall In Ohio,
Kentucky and Illinois, and of this spring In
Missouri. About a year ago a herd ol
grade Jerseys was gathered In the vicinity
of Baltimore. There Is now no means ol
ascertaining from what farms they were
taken, but It is a fact that they carried the
dlscaso td Troy, O.. from which point ll
was distributed to tbe herds since affected
in four or live Western States.

The TteporS of the l'arehase of American
Vessels for Cruisers Not rrae.
Nr.w York, April II. The agents of the
principal American steamship lines running
to this pott said to-day that they had not
heard of any attempt op the part of the
Russians to purchase their fait steamers
for use as cruisers In case that
war with England should be finally
declared. A representative of tbe Wan)
line which sold a steamship to the Russian
Government seven years sgo, when wsi
with Englsnd seemed imminent, said that
his property bad received no offers from
Russians as yet, and he did not believe the
report that they bad purchased four steam
ers at Philadelphia, as these were sold and
placed under a foreign flag soma time sgo.
At the Alexander Line offices it was
stated that the Russians bad not offered to
purchase any vessels of their fleet. An
American steamship man said it was too
late for Russia to purchase cruisers here for
the purpose of Intercepting troopships
sent out from England. It would
take somo little time to fit out cruisers, snd
before that work could be completed En
gland would bare landed all the home
troops she could spare In India. The British

London, April 13. An enormous emigra
tion from Italy to America is expected thlr
season, as a result of last year's cholera
epidemic. Italy-is suffering fron sn almost
unprecedented commercial depression, and
all branches of Industry show a lassitude
which smounts In some trades to almost
stagnation. In the rural districts the de
pression has caused an almost total failure
of the production of wine and oil, and
other crops have suffered a severe check.
The strike among the rural laborers at
Mantua is growing into large proportions
daily, and the authorities restrain the strik
ers from acts of violence and bloodshed
with dlftlealty. Thus far one hundred and
seventy strikers have been Imprisoned. The
tyranny nt the Government In making un
warranted arrests,, suppressing or destroy
ing telegrams containing truthful state
ments of the situation, and selling all news
papers which are outspoken In their pro
testations against high-handed official acts,
is widely denoumvd. The treatment meted

of tho officials is almost unprecedented.

London, April 9. The news of the en
gsgement on the Afghan frontier between
the Russians and Afghans has caused great
excitement here. Tho people aro Incensed
at the Rnsstan duplicity, pretending to be
anxious for peace, while the object wat
merely for the purpose of gaining time.
The fight nn tho frontier is generally viewed
ss the first step by Russia In the lonr-con,
tetnplatcd struggle for supremacy In
Asls, and that a bloody and desper
ate war between her and England
Is Inevitable. The feeling In financial and
commercial circles Is panicky. In the Stock
Exchange the gravity of the s'tuatlon Is re
flected by a heavy falling off In consols and
Russian bonds. The former hare de
clined fully two per cent since yetterdsy,
whllo Russlsn bonds hsre declined nearly
ten per cent, Tho Egyptian securities are
down four per rent. The whole market
is off. There are fears of a panic.

Russian Ambassador at I.ondon, was called

the nows of the outbreak on the Afghan
frontier. He said he only wondered it had
been so long deferred. "Thealfalr Is seri

fear the worst Is not known and that ths

venture on an opinion as to the result. He
refused to talk on the subject until he had

London, April B. Latest dispatches
from the Afghan frontier stste that the
fight at Murgbanb vtas a most stubborn bat

which rendered tho arms carried by

Two companies of Afghans defended one
position until they were completely anni

on mem ay tne jiussians. ma
Afghans retreated In perfect order. After
Inflicting severe losses the Russians
were evidently surprised by the stubborn
resistance. They did not follow up the ad
vantage, being evidently -on tent with the
capture of the camp. The British officers
present during the fight are loud In praises
sf the valor displayed by ths Afghan offi

London. April 9. Lessar, the special

viewed the nows as serious. He regretted
that a conflict should occur at this time.
"Matters," said he, "with regard to
the Afghan frontier were progressing
nicely. There was a fair prospect ot a
peaceful adjustment ot all disputes. Bat

must undoubtedly have been the aggressors.

London, April 10. Mr. Gladstone, Is
the House of Commons, last evening, la
answer to Interrogations, said that on Sat
urday the Cabinet had considered Russia's
reply to England'a proiosal to limit the
tone of survey to debatable points. Russia's
reply was an agreement to do this, pro
vided the zone of survey as marked out by
England was extended southward, so as to
Include the Parapamlssan range of moun

this reply did not adrance the question to
ward a conclusion and was dissatisfied with
It, "Within the past twenty-four boors,
hov rvcr." said the Premier, "a subsequent
ruuimuiilcattou had been received from
Russia, and this appeared, In the opinion of
the Government, to place the matter In a
more hopeful position." The Government
had been Informed, Gladstone further said,
that the Russians hail made every endeavor
to Induce the Afghans to begin the fighting.
Rossiau troops had even twice
ATTEMPTED TO rORCIBLT TABS
through tbe Afghan picket lines. After
ane of these attempts had failed to provoke
tn Afghan attack, Captain Yates met a
Russian chief ot staff and talked to him
about the conduct ot the Russian soldiers
being an evident violation of the Russian
agrccmrntto not advance pendlns the out
come ot the negotiations. The Russian
officer stated that be had no knowledge
that any arrangement existed against a
Russian advance. Captain Yatea referred
to the official dispatch sent from St Peters
burg on March 17 assuring England that
orders would be at once sent to the Rus-
iltn officers at the front directing them t
forbid any advance and to do all In their
power to prevent provocation of the
Afghans. The Russian officer declared
that he knew nothing whatever of
any such arrangement. Being asked
what the value ot this subsequent cominu
nlcatlon was, Mr. Gladstone said that It
would be impossible at present for the Gov
ernment to snake any further statement con
cerning the pending negotatlons about the
Afghan frontier in view ot the grave oc-
surreuco just reported.

avenues along which 'hoy proceeded were
adorned with bcantlful decorations and tbe
w Indows nnd roofs crowded with spectators
eager to catch a glimpse- of the future King
and Queen. There were, however, many
Indications that thero was no great Jmount
of enthusiasm outside of tbe route
ot tbe procession. The decoration ot
Ihe city was far from being general.
Another flag had been substituted for tlio
missing one and this was seen floating over
the mansion house. Along the route of the
royal procession on Its way to Dublin cas
tle many people were crowded back during
Ihe passing of tho escort ot lancers. The
Prince of Wales took all Irregularities good
naliiredly, and reassured the displaced spec
tators by shaking hands cordially with all
of them within his reach. Earl Spencer,
tho Itlsh Viceroy, was loudly cheered as
ho drove through the streets In the pro
cession. Lord Mayor John O'Connor, who
Is a strong Nationalist, but who drove In
official state with the royal escort, was
hissed by Nationalists. Not a sign of wcl

made. The green was literally one solid
mass of cars, carriages and peop'o afoot
One ot the features ot tho proces

ing force of students numbering nn
even thousand. jauntily dressed,
bearing walking sticks as arms snd carry
ing two union Jacks for banners. They
nade the streets resound with their cheer
ing and lustily singing of "God Savo the
