that many such former insurgents had
been appointed, but that they had
proved honest, straightforward and
lie said that some of them had been
guilty of murder by Unitd States stand
ards, but that from their own stand
point they undoubtedly In-Heved their
conduct of the war to have been legi
timate. Governor Taft said that he
had found these apiiointees to be loyal,
ami that they were not chosen because
they happened to be insurgent gener
als, but because they were men of in
fluence among their own people.

branch of the service. The war de
partment has also detailed two officers

Kntrles in the I ! i Match.
The first ririe team to'arrive is that
of the United States marine corps,
under the command of Major C. II.

big matches: United States army,
three teams; District of Columbia,
Massachusetts. New York, New Jer

TO BREAK RECORD
Prospects Never So Favorable for
Twenty Years as They
Kloomington, 111.. Aug. 25. Ac-ord-Ing
to Lafayette Funk, who lias just
returned from an extensive tour of the
state, the corn crop, barring frost, is
likely to be a record breaker. He says
that the prospects were never so fa
vorable In twenty years back as now.
Other grains are also doing well. In
Jersey county lie found wheats averag
ing twenty-five to forty bushels an
acre, with occasional crops of fifty.
He says that most of the wheat has
been stacked, which is thought to be
the very best way to get n thoroughly
good market condition on the grain.
Farmers in central Illinois are not
through with oats thrashing yet, a
month later than usual. The unprece
dented rainfall caused the delay. The
cool weather of the present month,
probably as a result of theheavy rains,
lias aroused some apprehension of ear
ly frosts and this may affect the corn
seriously. Otherwise the prospects the
state over are excellent.
PERFECTING DETAILS IN
BIG MEAT COMBINE
Omaha, Aug. 25. A semi-official an

packing-house combination has been
made lure by an official of the Ar

authority. He said-
"The combination of the packers has
been perfected and Hie announcement
of the fact will bo made public official
ly within a few days. The Cudahy
company lias decided to enter into this
combination ami will meet the ad
vances made by Armour and other
packers. This part of the deal has
been denied lately, but the deal was
not then closed and nothing definite
could be said. This will mean a con
solidation of all the packing interests
of South Omaha and a consequent re
duction of expenses in a number of
"The chances are that no decision
will be reached regarding the demand
made' by the meat butchers for on in
crease In wages for a few days at
least, as the matter is still under ad
visement." The result of the combination, it Is
somewhat feared, will work to the det
riment of the shippers, owing to the
fact that the buyers for the packers
will establish market prices. This Is
one of the most discussed points
among those on the inside of the so
called beef trust. There is little
doubt here that the statement quoted
