PROF. IIORLAND'S APPP.KSS.
At the nfteinoon session Prof. A. A.
Holland discussed the topic "What the
Cow Poes With the Feed She Fats." He
explained the use of the respiration
'alorlmeter In de ermlnlng what becomes
of the food constituents. The animal Is
i losely confined In a compartment such
ib.it accurate data may be obtained. All
food and all excretions are weighed and
lnalMted. thus affording an aeeuiate
statement of Intake and outgo The heat
given off by the body Is also det. i mined.
The value of different foods may be thus
iscertaine.l in leims of the eneivv thev
eontaln, or llberat. when consumed bv
the animal He likened the animal body
to a machine which moles Itself and (tip
piles pow'ei to move other machines. An
. nglne m eds sufficient repair material to
keep its working parts In running order,
and a fuel supply proportioned to Its
work: and so does an animal.
The body machinery is cumposed of
water, ash and protein. The pre.tcln Is
the chatiicierlstlc Ingredient of the ani

The railroads objected to hai'i.g thf 1 -mamls

for four reasons,, amonp; them the fa t
that three men would settle tlie con
trovetsv. Tills tliey thought places ton
grc;u rcsiMinsIbllltv upon the ono man
who would cast the deciding vote. With
the awards made In the engineers' caso in
mind, the firemen were loath to ha' o
Hip mutter go befote n tribunal of seven
men. None of the Ml district leaders of th.
Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen an.l
Englnemen. the firemen's union, cared
this afternoon tn forecast the next move.
Piesident Carter of the firemen's or
ganization and the district leaders will
meet the commlttp" of inlhoad managers
to-morrow morning when probably tho
firemen's reply to the railroads' counter-
proposition will !. announced.
After expressing their accordance with
the suggestion that the controversy be
arbitrated bv sonip method, tho commit
tee of mnnagers In their communication
to the firemen to-day. outlines Its rea
sons for declining arbitration under t'lo
Frelmati law. In part, us follows.
"It icsts upon the third arbitrator to
bring the other two arbitrators, as nearly
as possible together: If he cannot do so id
must decide between them. This Is a"
compllshed by splitting differences and
the caso may be adjusted without adu
qitate investigation of the facts Involved
and the award may not rest upon a basis
of eepiltv. Hut the most fundamental de
fect of the Rrdman act Is that tho Inter
