SEALED PACKAGE PLAN.
Packers and Commission Men Reach
I Basis of Agreement.
Chicago, July 12. The "sealed pack
age" system of buying cattle at the
Chicago stock yards has been adopted
as a compromise at a meeting between
representative of the Chicago Livestock
exchange and the packers. Negotia
tions have been pending for several
weeka between the commission men and
the packers and no agreement could be
reached on any other basis.
The packers held out for a system
of purchasing cattle at the yards where
by stock found to be Infected with cer
tain diseases could be rejected after the
purchase. The commission men main
tained that such a system was unfair
and gave the packers an undue advan
tage over the cattle owners and com
mission men. Under the agreement the
packing house buyers will make per
chases at their own risk. They will be'
given the right of examination, but
once selections have been made and
prices agreed upon the sale will be re
garded as completed and any subse
quent losses will fall upon the purchasers.

'(weighing out 62 pounds to the bushel.
LjThe price paid delivered was 75 cents.
The yield surprised the best judges,
and was of high grade berry and
A XEW DEPARTMENT STORE.
E. Zand! ton Will Open si Large Mer
cantile Establishment in September.
A new department store will be
opened by Mr. K. Zanditon on Kansas
avenue about Septemper first. This
store is expected to be one of the
largest department stores In the state.
The Crawford opera house building
that Is now being remodeled for the
store will be of the latest type and
most improved structure in the city,
and when the new stock has been in
stalled, it will no doubt be a pride- to
the city. .
In speaking of the new store, Mr.
Zanditon said; "I will leave shortly
for the eastern market for the purpose
of buying merchandise. I shall visit
Boston, New York. Philadelphia and
Cleveland, and in fact all points that
will be of advantage for the purchase
of merchandise. I buy all of my goods
directly from the manufacturer, at the
mills and factories, a fact which gives
me an advantage over those buying
from wholesalers and jobbers. In this
way I am able to buy goods cheaper
and this has been the cause, in a large
degree, of my success. I expect to
open the store for business between
September 1 and 15. and will carry In
stock all goods that truly belong to a
department store of this class. I will
continue to cater to the masses with
popular priced merchandise as I have
always done heretofore."

NEW KIND OF RAILS.
Tlie Santa Fe Has Made an Order for
New York, July 12. The specifications
of an order for 40,000 tons of steel rails
given to the Bethlehem Steel company
are interesting In view of the contro
versy which has been going on for some
time between the manufacturers of rails
and the railroads. The latter have been
making a protest against the quality of
the rails and the way they have been
breaking. The specifications In the con
tracts, which were awarded by the San
ta Fe and the Lackawanna are more
stringent than they have been in the
They require that 25 per cent of the
ingot be discarded from the top and
that the rails contain not more than
.04 per cent of sulphur. The cutting off
of the top of the Ingot Is to eliminate
the steel which Is likely to be impaired
by the raising of gas and other Impuri
ties to the surface. In the past the
mills have been cutting oft from 8 to
13 pr cent and contracts have been
calling for open hearth rails containing
not more than .06 per cent of sulphur.
Rails on these terms will of course cost
The Santa Fe order was for 30.000
