Qulncy Ifarald: The fate of the
steamer Majestic Is to be 'decided in
the rery new* future, perhaps within
ten days. The Wlsherde have decided
to make the attempt themselves to re
float the sunken craft. At least, they

boat, and If hta report la favojable,
the Wisherds wtU" undertake the gi
gantic task et rslatec it. If the diver's
report is not favorable. everything of
value oa the boat will toe removed
and the ill-fifed c*£t will be left to
be removed by the government. It
will probably be Mown up with dyna
mite, as it is a atenaee to navigation,
and interferes with the completion of
the intake pipe.
Captain Wisherd does not know
just what will be done, as everything
depends on the report of the diver af
ter he has made his under-water in
spection. It wan hoped the river
would drop several feet aa the lower
the water, the better would be condi
tions for working en the boat. Usual
ly in the fall the Mississippi gets
quite low, sometimes down to the low
water mark, but it has been unusual
ly high this year. The Wlsherds
have'waited as long as they could,
but now must act if they hope to
raise the Majestic before the river
freezes up. if they waited until

moving south, would doqhtleas com

while the river ia sttB so high It may
be impossible to accomplish any

ease, Edward Tilden, president of
Libby, McNeil and Libby, maid today.
"Closing the stock yards for only
ten days should have little effect. If
any, on market prices," said Tilden,
"and if prices are increased a Uttle,
I don't think the effect will be felt by
housewives. About the only ..people
who will be dlreqtly affected. WlU ^e
7,000 or 8,000 laborers at yardj
who will be made idle, other de
partments of the packing hftjes will
continue as usual." Jp'
While final shipments' of cattle to
the stock yards were being received
today, 600 feeders found to be Infect
ed with the disease, Vere being
slaughtered and their carcasses cover
ed with quick Ume and buried in a
long trench under direction of federal
authorities. Fine dairy cows exhibit
ed at the national dairy show and aP
praised at several thousand dollars,
received the same treatment. The
quarantine, order closing the yards for
ten days goes Into effect at 5 o'clock
tomorrow night. Cattle, sheep and
hoe* aidvaneed 25 to 60 cents at the
