With Gravo Apprehension.
BERLIN, May 8.?It is authoritative
ly'stated that the committee of th
relchstag to whom woa referred th
meat Inspection bill, which was BUb
stantlally agreed upon between the im
perlal cabinet and tho United State
ambaasador hero, Mr. Andrew D. "White
has reported against the measure am
In favor of a bill so hostile to Atnerl
can Interests that the government Vrll
probably refuse to sanction It.
The most unfortunate eircumBtances
as regards American interests In th
matter of the meat inspection bill, vra
the fact that there were insistent dec
laratlons In the United States that <>rn
balmed and poisonous meats had bee:
supplied to the troops In Cuba. Rep
resentatlves of the German land-own
lng Interests loudly declared that 1
the Americans sent poisonous meat ti
their own soldiers they would certain);
Bend It to Germany.
A bad result is that the bill, as re
ported back, provides for examlnatloi
and Inspection of American meats im
possible to enforce without utterly de
Btroylng the American trade with Ger
The bill, as remodeled by the relch
stag committee, also proposed to ex
elude from Importation hams, hard am
soft sausages, and chopped moats ant
fresh meats must come In whole car
casses or continuous parts.
'Tho United States embassy and th
German government still hope that bat
ter counscl will prevail when the 1)11
comes up for discussion in the opei
relchstag on its second reading, thoufjl
the chances for the enactment of thi
government measure arp vnrv slim.

Itself to the officials that however wel
disposed towards fair treatment o
American meats the German govern

the necessary strength In the relchstaj
to correct the discriminations fron
which our meats have suffered so long
The results of the failure of the mea

are commonly supposed, for It may b
stated that our government regards th1
projected relief of our meat from op

the terms of the Dlngley act or unde

NOTHING TO SAY

^ very close friend of General Miles and
x an officer of the army, when asked if
3 there was anything to say or d? in regard
to the rerort of the beef board,
"There Is nothing for him to say or
?do. The report has been approved by 1
\x the President, and the President Is the I
commander-in-chief of the army. Criticism
of the report or any other action
would be a violation of military duty."
Inquiry was made as to the. status of

i might pursue und It was stated th3t as
a military legal proposition It was impassible
for any action to be taken by
- any of the officers aggrieved. They
t might demand an Inquiry, but thl*
II would be a court of Inquiry which rec'
ommcndsd that no further notion be tar

Nearly everybody you meet will re- .1

ii they have weak lungs. All seem to n
have a solid faith in tne soundness of
their own breathing machine. In case* b
of trouble they will admit there *is a 5

Even the poor consumptive, who stafee- li

hectic flush of doom, will* assure jou e
with glistening eyes that his cold is on I

It is simply terrible to think how far t
we may be guilty by our indiffereoce to i1
the lung troubles of'those near and dear a

may hug a delusion as to our owrt hfealjh
that we only get rid of when life itself f

Nobody can afford to think lightly
of lung troubles. Nobody can afford to t
be mistaken about their possible dan- li
