THAT RESIGNATION OF NOBLE.
What One of Hi Subordinates Kays on the
Subject Proctor's Opinion.
Washington, Aug. 1. An official in the
interior department, who bears very close
personal and business relations to Secre
tary Noble, said yesterday that some months
go when it was rumored that Mr. Xobie
would resign from the cabinet he and an
other official of the department went to
the secretary and informed him that if he
intended to resign they would like to !e
informed of the fact before he placed his
resignation in the hands of the president,
as neither cared to' remain in the depart'
ment if Mr. Xoble was out of it. The
secretary told these geutlemen that lie
had no inteution of resigning, and that
if he should decide to take such action he
would give them an intimation of his in
tention. Doesn't lelleve the Story. -"Mr.
Noble has said nothing to me
about resigning," said the official
"and aa he is an honest man and has given
me his word that I should know of any
intended resignation on his part, I believe
the story that he has resigned has no
foundation in fact. .-.Before the secretary
started off on his summer outing," the
official said, "Bay M faie that he wanted

An A nthorized Statement.
A dispatcL from Cape May says: Presi
dent Harrisc n has authorized the state
ment that rcretary Noble has not re
signed from the cabinet. Secretary Hal
ford stated -.ast evening" that Secretary
Noble had never entertained any idea of
withdrawing from the secretaryship, as
his relations with the president and other
members of the cabinet have invariably
lieen of the pleasantest. The report rela

The Itig Four Meat Monopoly to Kemain
at C hicago.
Chicago, Aug 1. After a bitter and
prolonged fight waged iu the courts, aua
on the stock exchanges of the country,
Armour. Swift aud Morris, the three
greatest packers in the world, have con
sented to keep their plants in the Union
Stock yards for a period of fifteen years.
They have abandoned their immense
property at Tollestou, Ind., which at one
time some people thought would be cou
verteil into an independent stock yards.
It is now a part of the assets of the Union
Stock Yards company, which will hold it
in anticipatiou of final removal from the
overcrowded lot down in the town of
The Big Parkers Alt Satisfied.
All diflereuces between the packers and
the company have leen satisfactorily set
tled through mutual concessions, aud it
matters little now whether the packers
are in on the ground floor or on the roof of
the great enterprise, which Englishmen
snapped up so eagerly, even after its cap
italization aud obligations had been more
than quadrupled. According to cable ad
vices which have been pouring into the
offices of the concerns interested for two
days, Messrs. Armour aud Swift, who are
in London, are seemingly satisfied with
the deal as they have arranged it. This
means that Nelson Morris and Libby,
McNeill Sc Libby, who were associated
with Armour aud Swift in the fight, are
Armour Gets liberal Terms.
The exact terms of the settlement are
not known in Chicago as yet, because
none of the cable messages has set them
out in detail, but enough is known to as
sure Chicago packers tlt,t Mr. Armour
obtained very liberal terms from the stock
yards com pauy. The latter is capitalized
for t13.0Ln,ooi, one-half of which is rated
as common and the other half as preferred
stock. Besides this. it. has outstaudiug
bonds amounting to 10.0DJ,ilo I, which
makes a total of $j.1,(Ki(.(r kj cm' which divi
dends and interest must lie paid.
