DAY lis! DAVENPORT
Springfleld, 111.. Jan. 23. State Vet
erinarian O. E. Dyson, who has been
in charge of the state's end of the
campaign against the foot and . mouth
'disease, makes the statement that un
less the authorities are released from
the injunction put upon their activi
ties by proceedings in Kraie county,
the state of Illinois i3 liable to lose its
live stock market.
At present two-thirds of the state is
under federal quarantine on account
of the disease. No interstate ship
ments can be made from the quaran
tined area unless the sanitary officials
are able to proceed with their work.
Dyson Resents Interference.
"But for the interference with the
work of destroying infected herds,"
Dr. Dyson says, "Illinois would have
been practically cleaned up by this
time. We had been making good pro
gress and in only a few of the coun
ties were there any affected herds.
Now, however, the disease is being
permitted to spread and Oe condi
tion is becoming an alarming one.
"The injunction, in my opinion, was
issued without sufficient cause. It Is
based on the assumption that the dis
ease can be eradicated by some means
other than by the destruction of the
infected herds. The testimony is all
the other way. In Germany and in
other European countries other meth
ods of dealing with the disease have
"Most of the owners of infected cat
tle want them destroyed. Even in the
neighborhood where opposition has
been urged by agitators we find that
cattlemen who know what the spread
of foot and mouth disease means want
the slaughter to continue.
"I am informed that lawyers have
been 'passing the hat, offering to pro
tect owners against the sanitary offic
ials of the state and nation. These
men, it appears, are responsible for
the stories that cattle are being
slaughtered unnecessarily, and have
been arousing prejudice against the
work which is so necessary to the
safety of the Illinois lire stock and
dairy interests and to the Illinois live
"L'nti'. this agitation began there
was no opposition to the slaughtering
of infected cattle on the part of the
