The company is authorized to purchase and deal in cattle and other live stock and to carry on the business o butchers, packers, storekeepers and to con struct and operate steamship lines, etc The capital stock Is divided Into one-half preferred and one-halt common. The divi dends are to be paid upon the r-ref;rred stock, semiannually, but are not to be cumu lative. The dividends, however, ore to be at no time less than 1 per cent nor more than 6 per cent per annum. The Incorporators of the company are Horace a Gould. Frederick K. Seward and Kenneth K.

None of the companies to be absorbed by the Meat Trust is named in tBo charter granted to-day, nor does any of the big meat dealers appear among the Incorpora tors, who are clerks In a Jersey City cor poration agency. The charter gives the United States Packing Company power to "buy, sell, breed and deal in cattle, sheep.

Doctor Nletert effected a cure, however, without resorting to any of these methods.

Finney's trouble had its origin in the stomach and it was the aim of the phy sicians to rest the stomach and quiet the muscles of the diaphragm, the spasmodic convulsions of which rroduce the compli cated result known as the hiccough. In explaining the nature of the roaUdy Doctor Nletert said: "The malady Is H recurring spasm of tho diaphragm, which Is the series of muscles which forms the dividing wall between the chest and abdominal cavities. Hiccoughing is-a symptom of a-ccrtaln kind of indiges tion, and often may be produced also by distension of the stomach, peritonitis and i-Ht.n,in nf the resulratorv center. It also accompanies various diseases of the central nervous system. In many cises hiccoughs precede the collapse Just before death su pervenes In certain diseases. The manner in which hiccoughs are pro duced is this. When tho Internal disorder causes the muscles of the diaphragm to ex pand spasmodically the lungs are suddenly compressed by the convulsive pressure of tho diaphragm and the air la forced through the epiglottis, the hoodlike structure which closes the larynx when food enters the trachea. The epiglottis is forced wider open than usual and the rush of air makes the peculiar sound familiarly known as the hie The attack may be mild. In which case It requires no attention, or it may be per sistent and cause great suffering It 1 sometimes intermittent, continuing for hours, das or weehe at a time, to disap pear and recur after an Interval. Whll cases resulting fatally are not common by any means, they have been frequent enough to cause alarm to a man like Finney.

It was stated to-night that the United States Packing Company, which was granted a charter at Trenton to-day, has nothing to do with the proposed beef merger. John W. Dekay, the attorney named in the papers, is the authority. He u secretary of the North American Beef Company, one of the lesser Institutions of its kind which never has figured in the dis cussions or plans of the big packers for a merger, according to Lasalle street men. One theory is that the United States Packing- Company was launched to appropriate a name which the beef merger Interests may have had in mind. This title has been men tioned repeatedly as the one which the packers would adopt for the merger. MURDERER OF MEEKS FAMILY? Suspect at Atlanta Believed to Be Missing Taylor Brother. Atlanta, Ga.

Bitot of Harvard University ad dressed the Conn. ctlcut State Teachers" As sociation In tbe annual convention here to day and made startling statements. He virtually read an Indictment against the public school system. He found radical fault with toe work of the public school In America and claimed that tho pnMte seholH hae nut k-pt pace with social de elopment durlne the last nfty years, and that such Industrial wars as are on now are an evidence that tbe common schools hate not done their work as they should. In tine Doctor Eliot said: "That the re m'ts of American education have hitherto fallen far short of the hopes and expecta tions of Its founders." and that the Ameri can eopl cannot afford to persist In the present low school expenditure per pupil. THE I'NBDUCATBD WHOLE. His address was In part as follows: "My flrl argument In support af this proposition Is that as a nathis and on the whole. In spite of many failures of various sort In. our efforts to educate the 'whole people, we still before us many un surmountcd difficulties. It is Indisputable that we have experienced a profound disap pointment in the results thuo far obtained.

"For more than two generations of men we have been struggling with th barbarous vi-- of drunkenness, but have not yet dis covered a successful method of dealing with It. The legWaOon of tbe States has beta variable, and In moral significance uncer tain. In some of the States of the Union we have been depending on prohibitory leg islation, but th- intelligence of tho people has been Insufficient either to enforce such legislation or to substitute better. This Is an uccusAtkin not against the moral- dis position of the majority of the people, but against their reasoning power, and It Is precisely that reasoning power whleh good schools ought to train "The persistence of gambling In th United States Is another disappointing thing to the advocates of popular education, for gambling U an extraordinarily unlntrllect ual form of pleasurable excitement. It is a prevalent vree among all savage people, but one which a moderate cultivation of the in telligence, a very little foresight and tbe least sense of responsibility should be suffi cient to eradicate. "It must be confessed that the results of the Universal Suffrage are not In all re spects what we should hale expected from a peopjo supposed to be prepared a: school for an Intelligent exercise of the suffrage. We have ul'ceverel from actcal observa tion thst universal suffrage often prdtt-s bad government, especially In larxe cUlss. CRIMES OF VIOLENCE. "It Is a reproach to popular education that the gravest crimes of violence are committed In great number all over the United States. In the older States, as well CHARLES W ELIOT. President of Harvard. as In tho newer, br individuals and by mobs, and with a large measure of Im punity. The population produces a ronu-I-erable number of burglars, robbers, rioters, lynchers and murderers, and Is not Intelli gent edough eHhr to suppress or to ex terminate these criminals. The nature of the dally reading, matter supplied to tbe American public affords much ground for discouragement In regard to . tbe results thus far obtained by the common schools. Since one invaluabje result of education U a taste for good 'ending, the purchase by the people of thousands of tons of ephemeral reading matter, which I not good In either form or substance, shows that one great end ot popular education has not been attained. THEATERS CRITICISED. "A slmllap unfavorable Inference con cerning popular education may be drawn from the quality of popular theaters to day. The popular taste Is for trivial spec tacles, burlesque, vulgar vaudeville, extrav aganza and melodrama, and the stage often presents to unmoved audiences scenes and situations of an Immoral or unusual or un wholesome sort. "That labor strikes should occur more and more frequently and be more and more rldespread ha? been another srIous dis appointment In regard to the outcome of popular education. As we have all seen lately, tbe strike Is often resorted to for reasons not made public, or at least not mad public until after the strike has taken place. "To use In Industrial conflicts this weapon forged In secret Is to exhibit an utter lack ot faith In the very beet means of remedy for Industrial wrongs, namely, publicity When the capitalists or the middle men who resist a strike do so without publishing their reasons, the demonstration of lack of faith in publicity Is complete.

PROSECUTION IS FERSISTENT IN SEARCH OF BRIBEGIVERS. Circuit Attorney Folk has not Icet a mln utt In his efforts to get at the persons, who gate the bribes in the lighting deal. He tried to get testimony before the June Grand Jury that would lead to Indictments against the persons who It Is said cut up IlI.jO. the amount Murrcll says was neces sary to pass the lighting bill. About three weeks ago the June Grand Jury caused subpoena? duces tecum to be issued against Jamen Campbell, the broker, and William H.

Ed Butler. According to a story. B.itler tfad the checks cashed at one of the banks and gave the m-ney H7.X0 to Chas. F Kelly. From Information obt.-tIn.-d by the Circuit Attorney. Kelly distributed thl3 money to his fellow Hou.se of Delegates combine members at a "birthday party" at Julius Lehroann's house. Butler has denied that he received 'he chocks. Kelly could not bo found to tell whether he received them from Butler. Campbell has not been served with the subpoena. hatng departed for Chicago the day lefore the subpoena was Ismed. Reed has been found, but on his testimony alone the Circuit Attorney could not act.
