Chicago.-The "family history" of the

tlnt000,000 holding concern, was revealed .
ato the federal grand jury W'edmday and
the relationship to A\rmour & co., Swift
& Co. and Nelsen Morris & Co., was
traced with genealogical accuracy.
The genealoy of the National of t l acking
UniCompan was disclosedrto the grand jury
by Charles ti. Snow, secretary. and treas
urer of the concern, who knows its fak
ily tree by heart.
It is now believed that the depart
me o t of justice ustad been invesr tigating
the relatiun of the Ntational Packing
Company and its allied interests with a
view to bringing a civil suit to dissolve
it, when Judge Landis unexpectedly gave
instructions for investigation with at
view to criminal proceedings.
One of the next steps of District At
torney Sims will be to produce witn,:ases
to explain fro the grand jury how live
stock quotation u are recorded at the
yards. The buyers, lbsides knowing the
probable demand for cattle. sheep and
hogs, have reports each day as to the
number of animals awaiting sale in the
pens of the Union Stock Yards and tiran

\\ashiiigton, ). ('.--The president has
determineid to f:a., to a conclii-ioiin I.e
penlding ,nit agaiust the [nion and
Southern 'aciiicti railroad companies,
looking to at disoli ttiiin of tile IIIIerger,
and today concludehd ito deny the appli
cation of .1Judge Lo vet t. Mr. IIarrinman's
successor, for dismissal of the suit.
Sootl after ,hldge lovett, with a nunm
her of iniltential railroad people, ap
pealed to the president to llquashl the pro
'eedings before .ludge Vanileventer's
court in Salt Lake City, Mr. Taft, fol
lowing the course that had been adopted
in the case of th- famous New York,
New hlaven & Hartford Railroad Corm
pany when a similar appeal was made,
referred the matter to the ' attorney
general for examination and report.
In the New England case it waNs foundll
that, owing to the action taken by the
·-tate of Massachusetts and the inisig
niticanice of tihe governllenllt's interests,
it would be best to abandon the lIprose
iuition of the railroad, and this was domn.
But Attorney - (eneral \Wiekershaiu
reached a very (lifferent conclusion in
this l'acidic railroad merger case, and he
handed to President Taft a voluminous
report, the conclusion of which justified
the president in the announcement that
there was a good ease against the rail
roads, following the decikion in the
Northern Securities litigation. There
fore, the proceedings at salt Lake City
will be pressevd.
The status of the case at present is
this:
The governiiment has put in its testi
mny. 'The defense must legin in April.
when the usual Cvidence, in rebuttal Imast
he submitted thereaft'er. Then the ease
will go to that novel trihunial of four
judges provided for by the aniti-trust
act, known as the expelditing court, aml
doultless in the end will cone before
the supl'nie ('ollt of the United States.

ing of the advisory hoard held at her
home.
After the meeting, which decided to
carry the fight further and boycott the
big dealers in favor of the small dealer,
Mrs. Hlenderson gave the conmmittee a
lunch without meat, and chelaply in these
days of high food prices. They sat down
to it menu i consisting of an umiber of
articles, which Mrs. lenderson claimed l
coull he served to a family of six for
con-iderably less than aa (ollar, cooked
in a most delectable manner by Mrs.
HIenderson's French chef.

PARIS SEEMS DOOMED
DEATH ROLL MOUNTS TO HUN
DREDS-PESTILENCE STALKS
- Seine May Break Banks and Com
pletely Flood City-Realty
Loss $200,000,000.
 .aria.--'1 he Seine. is still rising and
, Paris, like a doomed city, is hohling its
I breath in terror. Half the city is in
uarkness. In the gloom galloping order
, ies are hearing instruetions which can
no longer be sent by telephone. ''The
Sarmny of police, firemen and soldiers give
the alpe"aramne of a city tighting for its
life.
Every minute brings graver dangers.
New areas are being inundated, quays
Sare collapsing, yawning chasms appear
in the streets. The water of the Seine
has invaded the entire labyrinth of un
tlerground Paris. It threatens ruin and
destruction everywhere.
, What new disasters will come to the
- water-logged city before the Seine be
gins to fall no one can predict. Already
I the damage is officially estimated at
$200.00,00', and every hour adds mil
lions more. The catastrophe promises
to exceed the limit of national disaster
and become international. The death
roll is also growingy at a frightful rate,
I and when the epidemic which now ap
o pears inevitable breaks out, it will r,+n
e into the thousands.
S'The authorities are facing the situna
I tion with brave hearts and are bending
t their energies to the rescue of the im
I- prisoned and the succor of the homeless.
e The extent of the flood in Paris may
be judged by the fact that about lialf
Sthle length of the quays within the city
are under water, which is pouring into
s the .streets and thousands of labor
ers and soldiers are working like mad
- to build brick cement walls to hold
I ack the c.urrent t. The foreign office
t and the llotel P"alais d'(rsay have been
,a abandoned. as the cellars are full of
r water. The Continental Hlotel and
t umay residenccs in the aristocrat i' quar
1 ter are rapidly being evacunated. There
e is ten feet of water in the subway sta
tion in front of the (are St. Lazarre,
and thie sinking of the square threatens
to carry down the adjacent buildings.
The 2,000 persons imprisoned in the
upper stories of their homes at Alfort
vt ille were being rescued by soldiers with
boats.
STANDARDIZING COTTON.
Department of Agriculture's Sample
on Exhibition in Congress.
Washington, i). C.-The exhibiting of
samlles of cotton as recently graded by
r the departmuent of agriculture in its
efforts to standardize that staple was
tliscussed today by Representative Scott
C of Kansas, chairman of the committee on
agricultmure. lie told the house that by
a the 1st of next Septemher Secretary Wil
:;son hop'es to have his new system of
standardizing cotton adopted by all the
selliung ageincies.
In the place of "iuminerable classes"
I of cotton utpon which prices had been
predicated.tl, Mr. Scott said lie believed
the world would eventually adopt the
nine classes into which various grades
of cotton had beein divided ly the die
partmnent of agriculture.
AGAINST APPROPRIATION.

d W\ashington, I). ('.-Representative
1)ouglass, of Ohio, lprotestedl to thb

4 battleship this year and giving half of
that amount to promote agriculture.
Hopes for Coal Lands.
Washiington.-.John A. Ballaine of
eSattle was introduced to the president
r by Senator .Jones of Washington antd
k bricfly explained the proposition made
by him to the senate committee on ter
uritories to pay a royalty of 50 cents
t. per ton for the coal to be taken fromn
e the government lands in Alaska. The
r, president only commented that hlie hoped
t- congress would some day make provision

in that far-away territory.
