The beef and cattle men passed the following manifesto: Whebeab, It has been alleged for years past that the dressed beef combine of Kan sas City and Chicago has used pernicious means to control the beef products of the United States, reducing the price to the producer without cheapening the cost to the consumer; and Whereas, Ithasbesn established beyond controversy that the dressed beef operators, in order to control the markets of the coun try, have opened retail butcher Bhops in many places, temporarily selling dressed beef at less than cost for the purpose of driving out of the business the butchers who refuse to handle their beef; and Whebeas, It has been proven that when ever the butchers have been ruined by the dressed beef monopoly and forced to be come its unwilling patrons the average price of beef has been advanced to con sumers in excess of the prices charged by the butchers when they slaughtered their own cattle; and Whebeas, It has been alleged that the dre3sed beef syndicate, by reason .of pur chasing the great bulk of western cattle,and being therefore the prmcipal patrons of the commission men, control the latter by re fusing to purchase from them shipments of cattle, a part of whioh has been sold to butchers; and Whereas, The small farmers and feeders are also at the mercy of the dressed-beef operators, who have destroyed their home markets; and Whereas, It has been established by chem ists of the British government that some of the dressed beef operators have corrupted the food products of the United States.mak ing out of an adulteration of animal fats and cotton seed oil a compound which was labeled and sold as "refined lard;" and Whereas, It has been further established that the dressed beef operators, by reason of forcing all cattle into the Chicago mar ket, which they control, have used their im mense power in concentrating their ship ments over roundabout railroads to eastern markets for the purpose of obtaining cut rates of freight and inaugurating needless railway wars, to the injury of the commer cial interests of the country: and Whereas, These-monopolists have acquired their millions by securing railroad rebates, cut rates of freight, by cornering food pro ducts and the adulteration of lard; in short, by pursuing methods which are against pub lic policy and injurious to the health of the nation; and Whereas, The cattle raisers, cattle feeders and butchers of the United States, in con ference assembled, have met for the purpose n. rt-e&i.ttuiiBuiu.i wo competitive mar&eis which this combination has destroyed; and Whereas, The conference, after the ex amination of numerous witnesses, has thoroughly satisfied itself as to the correct ness of the fact3 stated in this preamble. xow, tnereiore, oe it - Resolved, That there is no homes for the prosperous condition of the cattle industry until the peop'e of the United States shall destroy the power for evil which is now so injuriously exercised by this monop o!r ; there fore, be it further Resolved, That for the purpose of ra:sing the beef products above the suspicion of disease, and of re-establishing the com petitive cattle market, we earnestly recom mend to the legislature of the several States and Territories the enactment of live stock inspection law, requiting aU towns and cities to appoint inspectors, whose duty it shall be to condemn all beef which does not oome from cattle inspected by them on hoof and found to be healthy; and be it further Resolved, That we view with grave appre hension the fact that the beef product, which is one of the staple articles of human food, is rapidly falling under the omtrol of a monopoly which, unless checked, will soon have the absolute power to still further re duce the price to the producer and swell the exorbitant prices charged to the consumer; and finally, be it Resolved, That we therefore earnestly call npon the people of the United States to co operate with us, in the interest of public health and public policy, in securing the legislation indicated. CASEFUIXT WATCHED. The Asareblats are Scattered. Ttrolea ttplrltea aad Wit aemt m Seal T eager. Chicago, November 25. A a&ember of the central labor union, who is well informed oa the subject of labor matters say: BBsytjesaiely stated that ot reel aaareurts wte profess a belief ia the abo. of aU goistaisat by revofatioaary cgo. Of socialists who agreain general objects with the anarchists, but better ia education and peaceful agitation as a insane, there are about 5,000. Of men who are really anarchists at heart, but were seared into socialism by the execution, there are perhaps 303 or so. Besides these there are about 3,000 central union labor men, who are neither socialists nor anarchists, but believe that the executed anarchists were sincere friends of labor, and therefore hone and mourn for them. The socialists are harmless. The greater number of them would not join in any vio lent demonstration under any circum stances. Before the execution they had a vague idea that their doctrines were to tri umph by force. The tremendous lesson of the sure, irresistible power of the law conveyed by the executions made a great impression upon them. There is no doubt that they are thoroughly cured of any thought of an uprising with farce. The few pretended socialists who are really anarchists are sheer cowards. They may be depended npon never to lift a hand until some one else starts a revolution and gets it well under way. They live in consuming fear of the police. The real and avowed anarchists are no source of danger at present and will not be as long as they ore as carefully watched and are as few in number as at present. They know that they are incessantly under the eye of the police and know that they dare not plot. They are scattered, broken-spirited and without a leader. In all human likelihood they will never show their teeth again in Chicago. Unless all signs fail there is not another city in the country so safe from them and their kind." A School Fire. NewYobk, November 24. A fire broke out in the First ward public school, Long Island City. One of the pupils of theschool had gone into the basement and lighted a gas jet.

Wnen the children on the first floor saw the flame shooting up through the boards they raided jhe cry of ''Fire!" InBtantly there waa a panio in every room m the school buildiag. The children rushed pell mell from the nar row doors, crowding, jostling and striking each other in their efforts to get out. The children were piled up at the foot of the Btairways in heaps and all attempts to bring order out of the ' confusion were at first fruitless, but finally the firemen and police were able, to check the children, although they had to contend with an ex cited mob.ot weeping mothers that had ap peared as soon as the news of the fire spread out over the neighborhood. The fire itself amounted to little and a3 soon as it was ex tinguished an examination of the injured was commenced. It was found that while hundreds were badly bruised and shocked, no one was fatally or sariously hart. National Council of Women. Chicago, November 25.

Two important agricultural organiaa ticm bald their annual national conveo tfc in Topeka last week, the Farmer' ooogeess and tha Grange. Tha session of the Farmera' congress is tha eighth annual one. Up to Wednesday niarht not a sufficient number of delegates were u tpiiiiiiiun so proosea witn regular business. TheHon.B.F. Clayton, one of the leading members of the congress. was appointed to respond to the address to Da delivered by Hon. A. W. Smith in behalf or the state board of agriculture. The twenty-second annual meeting ot the 'National Grange, Fatrona of Hus bandry, began ita session in Topeka Wednesday. Nearly every state in the union was represented. The moat inter esting event of the day waa tha address of the acting grand master. In the course of his address he said in regard to the material condition of the grange: Tne organization of 193 subordinate granges during the past year warrants the assertion that the order ia ia a healthful and flourishing condition. The greatest increase in membership has been made in North Carolina, while the New England states show a contin ual increase both m membership and new granges. Colorado has devel oped marked activity and progress and is represented again this year in the councils of this body. The increase of membership by initiation, new organi zations, and reorganization in the several states wfll appear in the report ot your secretary, and matters pertaining to our finances in that of the treasurer and ex ecutive committee. Takuig into account that the year just closed has been one of great pohboal excitement and activity, and that the minds of the people have been more or less diverted from their several pursuits and interests, the condi tion of the order as a whole is decidedly encouraging." The Farmers' congress held a busy oloeioff session. Many important reso lutions were passed, some of them call ing out warm dissubsions, among which were the following: Favoring a free coinage of silver, favoring the expansion of the medium of exchange, approving the policy of the government in improv ing the river3 and harbors of the country and urging a oontinuanoe of the policy, indorsing boards of railroad commission ers urging upon all states to establish such boras, to infoice the interstate law; condemning the provisions of the national bank law which prohibits the acceptance of real estate security for loanp, and asking congress to amend the law to put real esta'e on an equal footing with other property; recommending the enactment of equit able laws by legislatures regulating freight rates and governing railroads; recommending the enactment of laws fa voring a home market. A committee was appointed to petition congress for the'eontinuanceof appropri-. ataons by the government for experi menting with the sorghum sugar indus try. The following were also adopt ed: Besolved, that we are opposed to all combinations of capital in trusts, or other wise, to arbitrarily control the markets of this country to the detriment of our pro ductive industries, and we demand of the congress of the United States such legislation es will secure to the farmers and stock raisers of this country tha best possible reward for their labor.

Besolved, That we urge our delega tions in congress to use all honorable means to secure the speedy passage of the bill now pending before that body creating the cabinet position of secre tary ot agriculture, and recommend that suoh place be filled by some prac tical farmer.

This agitation of the question of inspection can only be prddoo tiveofeviL It is made by a few men who want an appropriation, in' order to secure a livelihood which they are unable to earn. Local inspectors will make disease out of their imagination, even if none exist. No appropriation, no disease. It seems tome, if there must be an inspection other than now exists, that it should be an inspection' by United States officials, and not by local men, who could be governed bylocsl fears and prejudices. Cattle growers should rei member their experience of fifteen yeara ago, and not let these blood-money sharks hoodwink them. Legislation as pro posed means simply giving employment to a lot of so-called inspectors, who will be a detriment to the cattle and butchering in terests of the whole country, and who will give Great Britain and other countries a chance to discriminate against the cattle production of the whole oountry. Previous agitation of this character provoked the en actment of a law in Great Britain forcing the slaughter of cattle at the place of their embarkation and prohibiting their being driven into the interior. This lessened the price of American beef 2o to So a pound in the interests of a monopoly, and the same tactics are being pursued by eastern butch ers and their western organ at this time. Cattle growers ought not to listen to this cry of monopoly and at the same time give themselves into the hands of a greater mon opoly which is intended to be foisted upon them at St. Louis. The cattle growers and the consumers are perfectly able to protect themselves under the present sanitary and cattle laws, and do not need any special leg islation, any appropriation or any new fan gled special inspectors to proteot their in terests. 'Ihe wolf will be in anti-monopoly clothing at St. Louis, but his appropriation; buttons will gleam brightly over his shrunk en stomach and his greedy teeth have al ready been seen as he tackled the cattle in terests hereabouts for boodle. There is no need for more legislation. If cattlemen will watch their own interests they will promptly squelch these men who are asking for laws and appropriations." Posalb'liUcs of Modern Science. VicxoEiA, B. C, November 20. The tele graph was yesterday brought into service in a way that not only offered a good illustra tion of the extent of the system, but fur nished a unique example of tie possibilities of modern science. Lord Ennismore, heir to the earldom of Listowell, is lying at the point of death in a hospital here with ty phoid fever. Through the aid of Sir Donald Smith, who is on the London telegraph, a circuit was formed from London to Vic toria by cable, and Sir Andrew Clarke, the distinguished London physician, was plaoed in direct consultation with Dr. Bennington in Victoria. A conversation lasting three hours concerning Lord Enoismore's condi tion was carried on. The unbroken circuit worked from Victoria to the office in New York, where the telegrams were repeated. The London replies were received in three minutes. Lord Ennismore, though still in a dangerous condition, was somewhat better last evening. Young- Bandlnot's Trial. Little Rock, Abe., November 20.
