The scarcity of meat ultimata Is at
tributed by the department experts to
the encroachment of farms upon range
territory, lack of a proper range leas
ing law, shortage in the torn and for
age crops in Kansas, Nebraska and Ok

est of labor and stock feed, decline of
stock raising- on farms in the Mist and
South because of poor marketing- fa
cilities, the temptation to sell livestock
at prevailing hb.h prices and enormous

when the vessel struck a im k as she
was concluding hi r v -.i.vage. The re

gallantry of the iirst ottker, who, real

Sunken Liner Monroe' Located.
Norfolk. Va.. Feb. 2. With llfteen
feet of her single mast showing above
the water, the old Dominion liner
Monroe lost with fort.v-oiie lives when
she collided with the steamship Nan

Virginia, was located today by the rev
enue cutter Onondaga. She lies twenty-four
miles southeast, almost in the
exact spot where Die collision occur
red. The ship probably will be blown up
to clear the path of navigation. A led
light was twinkling ut the wreck's
masthead last night, to warn passing
Vessels of danger.
Declaring that the loss of his vessel
was due to the carelessness of the
commander of the steamer Nantucket,
Captain II. 11. Johnson of the Monroe
yesterday tiled a libel against the Nan
tucket, claiming a million dollars' dam
ages. Captain Johnson alleges that the
Monroe was proceeding- at half speed
or less before the accident and Jiad laid
to after hearing four whistles. He says
the Nantuiket came upon him ut such
speed that a collision was unavoidable,
although he had ordered his ship ahead
at lull speed to avoid the blow.

Mineis' TransNirtaiion company. Cap
tain Perry said that in an endeavor
to avoid a collision with the Monroe
the Nantucket's helm was put hard
apott to keep to the right, but the
Monroe proceeded at full speed and
tried to cross the bow of the Nantuck
et. The Monroe had succeeded In get
ting partly past the Nantiuket's stem
when the vessels collided, the Nan.
tucket's stem striking the Monroe's
starboard bow forward of the pilot
house, about at right atiglea.
The Monroe passed under such groat
speed, according to Captain Perry's re
port, that the stem of the Nantucket
was bent sharply toward her star
board side and the Nantucket sloughed
around so that her port side was
scraped by the Monroe, crushing one
of the Nantucket's port boats. The
Monroe passed on out of sight. At the
time of Da collision, the captain savs,
Die Nantucket's engines were running
at full speed astern and had been so
