Hog Cholera a
(By Dr. M. Ray Powers.)
Note?This is tflie fifth of a series of
short press bulletins on hog cholera.
Preceding: articles described the dis
ease, sanitary measures for its control,
Anti-Hog Cholera Sernm.
It has been known for many years
that the few hogs which recover from
cholera are henceforth projected from
fc the disease. In ot!Ler words they are
immune. This is due to the fact that
these hogs, during their sickness,
manufacture in their bodies certain
substances (anti bodies or anti-toxines)
which protect them against
further attacks of cholera.
Investigators in the U. S. Department
of agriculture discovered that if
a large quantity of blood from hogs
affected witih cholera is infected into
an immune hog this hog will produce
> additional anti-toxins or anti bodies.
In fact these substances are produced
to such an extent that blood drawn

There is perhaps no o?h,ei\.-office at
the disposal of President. Wtfson ;cf
greater imnortance than- that of mar
shal; a man of experience, judgment
and efficiency- is the demand for
that office. Is Mr. Buford a fit and
suitable man for that office? Would
(his administration of that office be
creditable and subserve the best interest
of the country? We need not
express our personal opinion; his
long record as sheriff of Newberry
' * county is a sufficient answer.
We have heard men endorsed for
office, we have read some of those
endorsements but candor compels us
to say that we have never known a
man to offer higher evidence of his
qualifications and fitness for an of
-? fice of similar character than that

hogs from cholera when such blood

or ':he fluid portion of it, is called
anti-hog cholera serum. Some ask
why this serum does not cause cholera.
It is so highly charged that it
can contain non-e of the virus which
causes the disease and will therefore
never cause cholera.
The method of serum manufacture
is interesting (also expensive), but
too compljex to be described in this

>Tew Amendment Added to Tariff Bill.
?To Prevent Prejudice. j
: " i
Washington, June 19.?-An amendment
to the Underwood tariff bill,
adopred today by the majority members
of the senate finance committee,
would, give the president of the. United
States authority .to suspend certain
rates in the proposed law and to prorates
l_. iCHiii. 1Uvvu ? - . . _-7_
whidh discriminate, against products
of the .United States. <,;;v
The amendment is appended to the
clause, giving: the. president authority
to negotiate reciprocity agreements
with other nations,, and, in some, respects
resembles the maximum and
minimum clause of the Payne-Aldrich
tariff law eliminate^.in- the house bill.
In . substance the,, amendment. would
provide tihat when any nation: discriminates
against the t products of, t;he
United States or imposes restrictions
upon United States exports, or- does
not,, in the opinion of the president!
reciprocate in trade, relations,, the!
president may,, by proclamation, sus- i
pend certain rates and put in effect
other rates. ....
Only specified articles, it is understood,
are to be included under the
terms of this amendment and the re- j
ffaliatory rates are specified also.
Among the articles included in the
list upon which the president might

flour, coffee, tea, earthenware, wines
and malt liquors, silk dress goods,,
leather gloves, jewelry, sugars and
molasses. The duties prescribed
vary as to the different articles. Fish,
it is reported, would be dutiable at 1
cent a pound, wheat at 10 cents a j
bushel, flour at 45 cents a barrel, a j
few cents per pound on coffee and,
tea. On other items tihe penary j
would be doubled rate, while on sug- J
ars, which probably never would be j
affected, the rate would be only a
fraction of 1 cent per pound. The
amendment, of course, is subject to
ratification of the democratic sensatorial
caucus, which will begin work
on ~he bill tomorrow.
Cat Out >ew Clause.
Besides adding this amendment the
majority members stripped the administrative
provisions of the Underwood
bill of many of its new features, including
the inquisitorial clause,
which gave American agents the right
to examine' foreigners' dooks m cases
of disputed import valuations. They
I also struck out the provision requiring
registration bureaus for commisjsioners
and agents in American consulates,
the provision to give the secretary
of the treasury the right to
'determine the existence or non-existence
of a foreign mr.rket; the antidumping
clause whicfa provided excess
duties on Imports underso1^ in this
country and the 5 per ->ent tariff diss
I count on imptfrfs m American vessels.
i Tho however, inserted
an amendment providing for the appointment
of a commission to be composed
of members of the senate
finance and the house ways and means
! committees :o make a thorough study
of the whole tariff / administration
' question and report recommendation
, for its readjustments. The action of
i+i'io onmmitfpp strikes from :he bill all
the provisions which aroused protests I
from foreign nations.
The committee declined to approve
the amendment suggested by Assistant
Attorney General D-enison and Assistant
Secretary Curtis of the treasury,
j which would give the secretary of the
j treasury authority to proclaim values

i markets, a scheme designed primarily
to protect the government against
loss of revenue under an.ad valorem
! tariff through undervaluations.
This t'he committee thought' not
practical. It adopted, however, a suggestion
from the same source, making
it unlawful to take up cases in :he customs
court on a contingent fee hasis.
I After reopening consideration of
: the print paper schedule today, the
committee renewed its former action
and struck out its amendmsnt, adding
the countervailing provisions of
I the Canadian reciprocity laws. As
the bill goes to the caucus the Underwood
provision remains undisturbed,

two and- a half cents a pound,' going

Attorney General McReynolds so-declared
in instructions sent to day to
erery TJnfted States attorney in the
country. Th?, law merely p^obibite
such interstate traffic and contains no

"Its purpose,." said the. attorney general.
"is..to perjnit ^tav.e laws to op*
erate in respect of intoxicating liquorgmoving
in interstate commerce.".
The law simply deprives shippers of
fli / ' JTIt; ( . v&SriSri E
any privileges they might claim on the
ground of interstate commerce and
permits the application of State prohibition
laws to interstate commerce |
in liquors. ... j
This is the first time the depart- j
ment of justice has construed the J
Webb law, which was declared uncon- j
stitu^ional by former President Taft)
and former Attorney General Wicker- j
sham. President Taft vetoed the bill
on the ground that it violated the interstate
commerce clause of the constitution
by delegating the regulation
of interstate commerce to the States.
rPhe bill was passed over his veto.
Attorney General McR-eynold's interpretation
is said to mean that the
federal government is no't called upon
to enfoorce a law ior ine viuiaauu ui
which no penalty is imposed and that
the interstate commerce forbidden by
the law is "outlaw" commerce in regard
to which the States are free to
apply their statutes. The attorney
general did not attempt to pass upon
the constitutionality of tihe act and it
is believed that this question ultimately
may reach the United States su- :
