OinuON , Neb. , March 17. To the Editor
of The Dec : In your Issue of the 12th Inst.
mention was made of the existence of
tuberculosis In the cuttle of the state of
New York and the alarm It created among
the stock raisers of that and adjoining
states. It wan the writer's good fortune to
spend six weeks the past winter ai a mem
ber of the state corps of "farmers' Insti
tute" workers In the western comities of
that state nnd had nn excellent opportunity
to observe the condition of the stock , ns
well as hear the subject discussed by com
petent men In many localities.
At the famous Haw ley farm at Plttsford ,
N. Y. , where a dairy of 110 registered
Jersey cows was used In making a fancy
brand of fine butter for bpcclal customers nt
high prices , we witnessed the testing of
many of these cows by the state authorities
for the presence of tuberculosis by means
of hypodermlcally Injecting fluid called
"turbercullno" otherwise known as "Koch's
lymph" under the skin at the animal ,
which caused the temperature of the diseased
animal to rise from two to live degrees In
n few hours ( It having no effect on a cow In
good health ) . We also witnessed the post
mortem examination of some of the animals
thus condemned by the state Inspectors In
presence of Dr Salmon , chief of the bureau
of animal Industry. About IPO head of this
dairy were condemned and killed.
There Is no doubt that the disease Is not
only present but pievnlcnt In both New
York and In Ntvv England , nnd , perhaps ,
exists In the cattle as well as man In n
greater or less degree In many states of the
It Is fair to conclude that In those states
where the disease affects the greatest num
ber of the human family the cattle will
al-o be diseased to a greater extent than
In other states , for two reaEons the climatic
Influences that Injuriously affect man and
renders him more susceptible to the disease
has a similar effect upon the animal , and It
Is a well established fact that the disease
Is often communicated from the man to the
animal and vice versa. This Is the alarmIng -
I am told that the Hoard of Health of New
York city assert that a great number of
children die annually of consumption con
tracted from the germs of the disease con
tained In the milk sold by dealers In the
city , and many more In the same way take
the germs Into their systems ( Jiat develop
into fatal disease later In life. The thought
less consumptive , who spits on the fodder
or floor of the feeding room of the dairy
barn puts the germs of tuberculosis where
they may bo communicated to the cows ,
and they In turn become diseased and de
posit the germs In their milk , which Is con
sumed ns food nnd recreates the dread dis
ease In scores of human beings.
The present general excitement In the
eastern and New England states Is not
caused by any sudden Increase of tuberculo
sis In man or animal , but Is the result of a
knowledge suddenly acquired that the dis
ease Is far more prevalent than was Im
agined by the dairymen and stockmen of
those states. This discovery was made pos
sible by and In the result of the use of the
above described test , which Is of compara
tively recent origin and has only been In
use In this country a short time. Hundred- *
of cows that appear In perfect health and
are pronounced sound by the most skilled
veterinarians prove by this test to be badly
It Is not confined to the lungs , as many
suppose , but may bo located In almost any
part of the body. Your correspondent was
at the experiment station at Burlington , Vt. ,
and witnessed the slaughter and examination
of a part of the station cov\s that had the
appearance In life of being peifectly healthy
and of robust and vigorous constitution , but
were condemned by the "tubercullno" test ,
and the post mortem revealed the fact that
many of them were far advanced In the
disease , mostly of the lungs , but In others
the lungs were &ound. In one case In
particular the lungs and vital organs ap
pealed In such a healthy condition that It
wa'i at first thought that for once the test
had failed , but on further examination the
disease was discovered In a considerable
portion of ono lobe of the udder. All but
eight of this station herd responded to the
"tubercullno" test and the entire herd was
destrojcd and examined , and In every case
the test proved correct.
The New York state inspectors also tes
tify to its reliability. It Is made both In
Germany and In the United States at a
considerable expense and furnished to the
states at cost requiring about COc worth
to test each anlmfcl.
It Is claimed that the germs of tubercu
losis are never found In butter. Being
heavier than cream , they remain In the
skim milk , and where n separator Is used
they are largely caught In the albumen
that coats the Inside of the separator bow 1
In the net of skimming. In many of the
eastern cities milk is put upon the market
that has been sterllUed by heating to ICO
degrees and bottled while hot. lliis kills
all germs , but renders the milk less
palatable and may become less desirable
as food for infants than natural milk In a
healthy condition ; besides. It Is too expen
sive for the poorer classes. The steriliza
tion of milk after It reaches the city and
then sold In common cans Is not consid
In the states west of the Missouri the air
Is so pure and bracing and the climate so
healthful the Inhabitants feel safe from tu
berculosis and hundreds of Invalids from
other states find permanent relief here ,
The wliter believes that In this very condi
tion there Is great danger that the germs
brought by consumptive people from the
east are being communicated to our cattle
and by them to our children , and If the con
ditions of our milk suply were as carefully
Investigated as that of the cities of New
York wo might bo as greatly surprised as
There are l.COO.OOO cows In the state of
Now York. H would cost nt least $ t each to
test these cows with "Tubercullne , " and If
5 per cent wcro found diseased and de
stroyed and the state paid $25 per head In
demnity the expense to the state to clear
the present generation of cows ( not Includ
ing the other cattle ) would be $3,640,000.
No wonder the legislature hesitates. .
Would It not bo wise for all states to adopt
precautionary measures ?

KANSAS CITY , March 17. The Louisville

case of the foiled wholesale liquor house of
Oliver & O'Brien which was taken posses
sion of last Thursday by creditors represent
The petition makes allegations which , If
substantiated , bid fair to lead to the divulg
ing of a gigantic scandal In business and offi

NEW YORK , March 17. In the city
court suit has been begun by F. Marx to
recover the value of a note for ? 500 given
to plaintiff by Colonel Richard H. Savage
and endorsed by his wife , Anna J. Savage.
Mr. Marx Is a California millionaire , now
living In Europe , and ho came Into court
only In a legal sense , being represented by
a big deposition and by his counsel , Thomas
J. Rich. Through these mediums ho sets
forth that in 1SSS or prior thereto , Colonel
Richard Henry Savage , who Is the author
of "My Official Wife" and other novels , was
visiting with his wife the country homo of
the defendant in California. While there
the colonel , who had not begun novel writIng -
Ing and play writing , borrowed from the
plaintiff $500 , giving his note therefor , his
wife endorsing the note. Plaintiff pleaded
that the note had never been paid , and asked
for Judgment for the amount , alleging that
In splto of tlic fact that the statute of limi
tations had apparently run against the note
It had not in fact , as the debt had been
renewed or relncurred through recent ac
knowledgments by both Mr. and Mrs. Sav
This point of the legal renewal df the
obligation within the time ( two years In
California ) when it would otherwise bo out
lawed was supported by letters which coun
sel for plaintiff pioceeded to read. In one
letter Colonel Savage wrote to Mr. Matp ;
that ho would pay the note at once if he
could get the fee due him In the Rjer divorce -
vorco case. This was a famous San Fran
cisco dlvoico case , and Colonel Savage stated
In his letter that ho expected a fee of from
$12,000 to $20,000 , but as yet It remained only
Colonel Savage acknowledged borrowing
$500 from the plaintiff under the circum
stances related In the Marx deposition. That
debt was owing when there came to San
Francisco J. W. Graydon , late of the United
States army , who is the Inventor of the
cable torpedo system which created a great
deal of discussion a few years ago. This
system had been successfully operated by
Lieutenant Grajdon In China during the
Pranco-Chlnese war of 1881-85. Colonel
Savage met Lieutenant Graydon and made a
contract with him for a half Interest In the
Russian rights In the cable torpedo patents ,
In consideration of his ( the defendant's ) ef
forts to sell the patent to the Russian gov
ernment. Ho was , It also happened , In a
situation to exert peculiar ami unusual in-
lluenco in Russian official circles , Mis. Sav
age's daughter having married n nobleman
who was , or had been , chamberlain In the
czar's household. The contract having been
made , and Mr. Marx hearing of It , the latter
expressed a great deslro to obtain a share
In Colonel Savage's Interest.
Theieupon the defendant agreed to share
his profits , equally with the plaintiff If Mr.
Marx would advance $1,500 for the expenses
of Mrs. Savage to St. Petersburg. Million
aire Marx accepted these terms and advanced
the $1,500 that is $1,000 In cash and $500
In the shape of the debt to. that amount
owed to him by the defendant. Then Mrs.
Savage went to St. Petersburg. But her nego
tiations there came to naught. Savage
claims that one-half the $1,000 drawn by
Mrs. Savage Is legally chargeable to Mr ,
Judge Conlan did not pass on the equity
of Colonel Savage's counter claim , but or
dered the case dismissed on the ground that
the note on which the action was based was
clearly outlawed , under the California stat
ute , and not sufficient proof had been made
that the obligation had been legally removed ,
the friendly letters between the parties not
constituting a legal obligation.
