Washington, July 14 A short time ago
Secretary Morton issued a circular ad
dre si-d to the patters of meat in which he
asked for views as to the advisability of
diminishing the force of employes in the
bureau of animal industry, and whether or
not the insjiection of meat conducted by
the Imre.m at the expense cf the govern

Say the Law Is. a Failure.
''I have n-t prr.po-eci the st"ppne of
meat inspection," said Secretary Morton,
discussinir this subjcjt, "for the law dis
tinctly says that it shall go on and no
officer has the power to abrogate the law,
enacted by congress. However, under
that law there is a discretionary power
which enables the secretary to reduce ex
penses, especially unnecessary ones. If
the becefits to lie derived from the law
are supposed to 1 in the direction of cre
ating a demand for our meats abroad, then
the law is a failure. The inspection of
beef for export becan May Is. and the
first shipment of inspected beef was ma le
May 22. four days later. The microscopic
Inspection of pork for export began June
22, 1501, and the first inspected pork ex
ported was shipped Sept. 5, ls;i.
Costs 8 I'rr Cent of the Export.
"Since inspection hesan, up to May 31
last, a period of a little more than two
years, we have sold to countries demand
ing a certifir-ate cf inspection meat of the
value of 4,"77.443. During the same
period we have paid to microscopists for
salaries alone, to in-peet this same meat,
the sum of i;'2i.4'.!. and before they could
begin their work the government laid out
tM" for microscopes. The other inciden
tal expenses amounted to iW.; so that
the total for all expenses of inspecting this
meat was s per cent of the value of the en
tire product sold by reason of the inspec
tion. "nurran of Animal Indolence."
"The countries requiring this inspection,
and to which this meat was sent, are Ger
many, France, Denmark, Italy, Spain and
Austria. Xow look at the other side of the
question. During the same period we
have sold to countries not demanding this
inspection meat to the amount of more
than ?:4.nno.(KM) and that, too. without the
cost of a dollar to the general public."
Secretary Morton gave as an illustration
of the way in which, as he facetiously
termed it, the "bureau of animal in
dolenee'' had grown, the facts in the case
of the two stations at Omaha and Kansas
Say Their Basinets Will Be Rained.
At these two houses the government has
paid out more than $24,000 in salaries to
inspectors of meat for export, and yet the
reports of the customs officers show that
not $1 worth of meat has been exported by
the packers in these two cities. In reply
to the secretary's letters these firms, along
with others, say that their business will be
ruined if tbe inspection is done away with,
and that it will be impossible for the pack
ers to have it done at their own expense on
account of the "present narrow margin of

Lochren, of the pension bureau, has issued
an order directing that hereafter in mak

made for a full military and medical his
tory of the soldier. Hitherto these calls
have asked only for the dates of the sol

This new order is important from the
fact that it shows a purrmse on the part of
the pension officials to make a more search

of the applicant's disability and ascertain
from official sources whether it may not

berger's. Xew Your. July 14. The Japan Mail
received per latest steamer gives an ac
count of a terrible tragedy. Shortly before
midnight on the 25th of May the peace of
a village some twenty or twenty-five miles
to the southeast of Osaka was disturbed by
the report of a gunshot. Awakened by
the report Matsunaga Denjiro, 50 years of
age, went outside and escaped to a neigh
bor's, who summoned assistance and -ran
to Denjiro's house. Arrived there they
found the house on fire and two or three
men with swords and small firearms ready
to kill anybody who might attempt to in
terfere with them Xo one dared move.
An hour or two later a number summoned
enough eourajr? to go to the place in a
Had Been a Frightful Slaughter.
They found there Denjiro's wife. 55 years
old, slashed and cut in the back and ab
domen; his son Sagoro. 20 years old,
shockingly mutilated, and a daughter.
Xuye, 1 years old, with gaping wounds on
thigh and sid? and with her left hand
fingers all cut off All were dead. Xear
by the body of a woman named Morimoto
Tora was found iu front of her own house
with a wound in the chest from a musket
ball. Other wounds were found on other
parts of her Ixvly. and at the house of one
Matsunago Jumajiro, a son of Denjiro, a
woman named Uiye, 3rt years old. daugh
ter of Akasaka Uno, and Denjiro's 5-year-old
grandson Kyutaro, were found seri

A grandson of Akasaka Uno, who wa3
born last year, and Riye's illegitimate
child, only 40 days old, were both found
with their heads cut off and bearing the
marks of other wounds. In a field nearby
Kumajiro's corpse was found cut and

Caote of the Butchery.
The whole villacre was aroused and the
officials made an investigation. Two well
known villagers Kido Kumatora and Tani
Gagorie, were absent and Asuma Kiekizo
was arrested. These three are beiieved to
be the murderers. The cause of the crime
is a woman, and the chief murderer is
now believed to be the man Kido Kumato
ro, who formed an attachment for Xui
who was found with her head battered in
and legs cut off, and took her into his
house after divorcing his actual wife on
the plea of an incurable mental derange
ment. Xui had another lover and this is
the supposed cause of the butchery.
