Washington, April 27. Tho Informa
tion regarding tho cattlb supply which
tho dopartment of rgrlculturo has or
dered from its agents nnd inspectors is
beginning to comtf In. "While It
shows " said Dr. Salmon, the head of
tho bureau of nntmal Industry, yfcs
torday, "n splendid range, strongly
stocked nnd cattlo In good shape for
present slaughter In tho eastorn half
of tho Indian territory, It doos not ex
hibit as hopeful a condition at other
points. Through Colorado, western
Kansas and at points to tho north nnd
west, tho reports tell of sparse herds
and cattle In bad condltton."
Dr. Salmon thinks that tho big cat
tlomen havo discovered tho shortage
and aro holding back shipments to
force tho prices higher than thoy are.
Ho Is not, howover, prepared to chargo
that thcro Is a conspiracy to corner
among tho cattlemen, but ho Is suro
ono oxlsts among tho drossod taof
firms. "The dopartment Is not yot
ready," ho suld, "to point Its finger at
tho perpetrators of this outrage In beef
prices. Tho proofs aro not all col
lected. But thoy aro coming In. Thcro
1b now no doubt of a comblno or of n
combino's oxortlons. Tho variation in
retail pricos for beef shows this.
Tho pricos aro In no sonso or
fashion uniform. Wo got informa
tion from a point In ccntrnl Illi
nois I don't care to namo tho placo
from sources absolutely rcllablo that
tho retail figures on beof havo in no
sort go.no up In theso littlo Interior
towns. Our correspondent quoted tho
retail prlco of porterhouse on tho
butcher's block In this littlo Illinois
town at 15 conts por pound. Now,
dressed beef frolght from Chicago to
Now York is only about ')i cent a
pound, and after that Is paid tho ship
pers get a big robato from tho rail
roads, based on the comblno owning its
own cars. So far as our inquiries havo
developed matters, It doos not appear
that tho cattlo owners or rotall butch
ers nro at all to blamo for tho present
high prices In beef, or nro In nny con
spiracy to keep them up or send them
higher. Llvo cattle, when last com
parisons are made, whllo higher than
n year ngo, aro not so" high us tho tacf
comblno asserted or we supposed.
"Our advices show tho beef comblno
to bo as strong In California as any
where else. As to tho effect on Mexi
can cattlo of tho socrotary's late ordor,
opening El Paso and Eagle Pnss and
other Mexican crossings Into this coun

Carlisle's Monoy Speech.
Washinqton, April 27. -"Probably
tho most Interesting nnd tho most
wntuhed-for oront In tho coming finan

aro tho objoct of great intorest through

much ra&informatlon and doubt. It
