The Prevalence of the Plague at Chi
cago Still Causing Deep Concern.
Chicago, 111., Sept. 27. The important
question of pleuro-pneumonia was the sub
ject of general discussion iu all the various
phazes among cuttle owners, stock deal
ers aud butchers, as well as veterinarians,
during Sunday. As the members of the
live stock commission were all away from
the city there were no new developments
regarding the disposition to be made of
quarantined cattle when slaughtered. The
state veternarian visited several cattle sheds
dnring the day, and as a precaution against
the fuithcr removal of animals two addi
tional men were engaged at the expense of
the general government, whose duties are
to count tne animals at the differ
ent sheds every morning aud evening.
"Whether this would serve any good pur
pose was a question of grave doubt among
many. The penalty for the offense ot
moving cattle was considered severe
enough to cause hesitation about breaking
the quarantine, and yet in spite of all pre
caution taken, the quarantine is known to
have been proken at two of the distilleries
Schuefeldt's and the Chicago and there are
rumors that it has not been heeded at other
There was hope that the disease would
not break out at the Chicago distillery; but
a cow was found there in a very sick con
dition and the doctors were inclined to
think it was another case of the dreaded
plague. The six animals missed from
Schuefeldt's have not been found and no
one appears to know whether they were re
moved dead or alive.
Both cattlemen and distillers declared
that the disease now prevailing existed in
their sheds for at least two years, but as
they had imagined pleuro-pneumonia acted
more rapidly and severely they had never
dreamed of the character of the disease.
The Illinois live stock commission has
not yet ordered slaughtered the quaran
tined cattle at the Chicago distilleries. A
meeting of the commission will be held to
morrow morning, when some decisive
action will be taken. The officers of the
Chicago Live Stock exchange and Union
Stock lards company say they propose to
protect the interests of the cattle growers
of America with the best veterinary skill
that money will emplov, combined with
all the common sense and executive ability
that they possess. They maintain that
there is no cause for alarm, and they do
not intend there shall be any, as far as the.
Union Stock lards are concerned.
Tonight the following telegram was
Union Stock Yards, Chicago, )
September 27th. f
Itlohard J. Oglesby, Governor of Illinois:
No sign of the disease here. Our cattle
were never healthier, but in order to facili
tate the slupment of cattle to Iowa and
other states that may quarantine against Il
linois, we would respectfully request your
excellency to appoint and send to these
yards an additional veterinarian, the most
eminent that can be obtained, and if neces
sary we will pay his salary in any manner
you may deem proper.
Signed by the general manager of the
Union stock yards and by the president of
the live stock exchange.
"Washington, D. C, September, 27
The bureau of agriculture is actively en
gaged in devising and putting in operation
measures looking to the extirpation of pleuro-pneumonia.
"Commissioner Coleman re
solved to adopt every legitimate means in
his power to check the outbreak of the dis
ease reported from Chicago.
Evidence of the anxiety and appiehen
sion felt in the western states is afforded by
the following telegram received today from
Denver, Col.: In behalf of the live stock
industry of the west we earnestly protest
against the sale, private or public, of any
cattle that have been exposed to pleuro
pneumonia in the vicinity of Chicago.
Cattle sold under such circumstances must
bring depressed prices, thus giving eager
speculators abundant opportunity to spread
the disease throughout the country.
The above message is signed by It. G.
Head, president of the International Range
association, and J. A. Cooper, president of
the Colorado Cattle Growers association.
Commenting on this dispatch Commis
sioner Coleman said: The people must be
crazy to think the department will permit
any of these cattle to be sold. "We have
quarantined them and doubled our forces
on Saturday, and are now going to send
out the most expert veterinarics we have,
so as to stam p out the disease at once, and
do everything the department can legiti
mately do. We did not get through con
gress the bill we expected to pass on this
subject, so we am only second the efforts of
state authorities and assist in carrying out
state laws.
Under the existing law we can only
stamp out the disease in a state with per
mission of local authorities. Some times
the governor of a state will cot consent to !
federal interference, so we am only second .
their efforts. "
The commissioner has drawn up and !
forwarded to the governors of all the states ,
and territories a scries of rules vwi regula-1
tions for co operation bet ccn the United ,
States department of agriculture and the
authorities of the sevcralstatcs and territor
ics for the suppression and extirpation of
contagious pleuro-pneumonia, and if they ,
receive the consent of the state authorities ;
the bureau will make a systematic, deter-,
mined attempt to stamp out the disease by
attacking simultaneously every infected
The circular recounts the provisions of j
the law. laying particular strecs on the
section which makes it requsitc for action '
bv the department to first secure the con
sent of state authoriliea, then lays down
the following rules and regulations which
are deemed ueccssary to insure results com
mensuaatc with the money ($10,000) au
thorized to be expended in inspection.
First That necessary inspection be fur
nished by the bureau of animal industry of
the departmeut of agriculture.
Second That properly constituted in
spectors of the bureau of animal industry
which are assigned to the respective states
are to be authorized by the proper state au
thorities to make inspections of cattle un
der the law of the states; they to receive
such protection and assistance "as would be
given to state officers engaged in similar
work, add shall be permitted to examine
quarantined herds whenever so directed by
the commissioner of agriculture or the
chief of the bureau of animal industry.
Third All reports of inspection shall be
made to the bureau of animal industry and
a copy of these will then be made and for
warded to the proper state authorities.
When, however, any inspector discovers a
herd infected with contagious pleuro-pneumonia
he will at once report the same to
the proper state authorities ai well as to
the bureau of animal industry.
Fourth The inspector, while always'
subject to the orders of the department of
agriculture, will cordially co-operate with
state authorities and will follow instruc
tions received from them.
Fifth "When contagious "pleuro-pneumonia
is discovered in any herd the owner
or person in charge is to be at once notified
by the inspector and the quarantine regula
tions of the state in which the herd i3 lo
cated are to be enforced from that time.
The affected animals will be isolated when
possible from the remainder of the herd till
they am be properly appraised and slaugh
tered. Sixth To issue perfect and satisfactory
quarantinc a chain fastened with a num
bered lock will be placed around the
horns or, with hornless animals, around
the neck, and a record will bo kept show
ing the number of the locks placed upon
each animal in the herd.
Seventh Locks and chains for quaran
tining will be furnished by the department
of agriculture, but they will become the
property of the state in which they are used
in order that any one tampering with them
can be proceeded against legally for injur
ing or embezzling the property of the state.
Eighth Quarantine restrictions once im
posed are not to be removed by the state
authorities without the consent of the
proper officers of the department of agri
culture. Ninth The period of ouarantinc will be
at least ninety days dating from the re
moval of the last diseased animal from the
herd. During this period no animal will
be allowed to enter the herd or to leave it,
and all animals in the herd will be careful
ly isolated from other cattle. "When pos
sible, all infected herds 'are to be held in
quarantine and not allowed to leave the in
fected premises except for slaughter. In
this case fresh animals may be added to the
herd at the owner's risk, but arc to be con
sidered as infected animals and subjected to
the same quarantine regulation as the
other members of the herd.
Tenth All animals infected with conta
gious pleuro-pneumonia are to be slaugh
tered as soon after their discovery as the
necessary arrangements can be made.
Eleventh "When diseased animals are re
ported to the state authorities they shall
promptly take such steps as they desire to
confirm the diagnosis of the animals found
diseased and then to be appraised accord
ing to the provisions of the state law, and
the proper officer of the bureau of animal
industry (who will be designated by the
commissioner of agriculture) notifi
ed of the appraisement. The
department- of agriculture will
purchase the deceased animals of the
owner and pay such a proportion of the
appraised value as is provided for compen
sation in such cases by the laws of the
State iu which the animals are located
when they are condemned and slaughtered
by state authority.
All the nectary disinfection will be
conducted by the employes of the bureau
of animal industrv.
Inoculation is not recommended by the
department of agriculture, and it fs be
lieved that its adoption with animals that
are to be afterwards sold to uro
into other herds will counteract the good
results which would otherwise follow from
the slaughter of the diseased animals. It
may, however, be practiced by the state
authorities uuder the following rules:
Fourteenth No herds but those in
which pleuro-pneumonia has appeared to
be inoculated.
Fifteenth Inoculated herds arc to be
quarantined with lock and chain on each an
imal. The quarantine restrictions are to
remain in force sis long as inoculated cat
tie survive, and these animals are to leave
the premises only for immediate slaughter.
Sixteenth Fresh animals are to be taken
into inoculated herds only at the risk of the
owners and shall be subject to the same
rules as the other cattle of the inoculated
Seventeenth The chief of the buicau of
animal industry is to be promptly notified
by the state authorities of each herd inocu
lated, of the definite disposition of each
member of the herd, of the postmortem ap
pearance and of any other facts in the his
tory of the herd which may prove of value.
The co-operation of governor, of state live
stock commissioners and of other officer
who may be in charge of the branch of ser
vice provided for the control of contagious
disease of animal in the states where pleuro
pneumonia exists, is especially requested
under thee rules and regulations which have
been formed with a view of securing uni
form and efficient action throughout the
whole infected district.
It is hoped that with a vigorous enforce- j
mgnt of such regulations the disease may j
be prevented from extending beyond the j
present limits and may be in" time" entirelv !
eradicated. " j

That Antonomislic Marriage.
Valley Falls, Kan., Sept.27. E. C.
Walker, one of the free iovc editors of
Lucifer, and Lillian llannan who were
arrested on the 20th inst, on a charge of
illegal cohabitation, had their preiiminarv
hearing before K. D. Simpson, J. P., today
and were bound over to the district court
in the sum of one thousand dollars. The
state was represented bv- Count Attorney
Giletty and T. A. Meyers and the defence
by David Overmeyef, of Topeka. The
case was stubbornly contested on both sides
and the profoundot interest wai
manifested b- the public When
Justice Simpson announced hi? decision
the unusuaSl" large audience assembled
burst into loud applause. The indications
at this writing are that both Walker and
the Harman girl will have to lie in join un
til the Octohcr term of court, as no one
seems willing to go on their bead. The
defendents declare it their purpose to carry
the case to the United States supreme court
if necessary. There is strong talk of ar
resting 31. Harmon, the senior editor of
the Lucifer, as an accomplice of the auton
omic marriage of hi daughter Lillian.

British Grain Market.
London, Sept. 27. Tlie Mark Lane Ex
press, in its weekly review of the British
grain trade, says: Trade is extremely slow,
but prices were sustained. Sound English
new crop wheats were in bast demand.
Flour slow sales, owing to the large stocks
and continual American arrivals at rates
previously unknown. Fine malting vurie
ties are very fccarce. The trade in foreign
wheats was dragging, the large and rapid 13
increasing supply' in America oppresses
trade. Here trade forward is somewhat
steadier. At todays market there was 110
improvement in wheat; American and in
ferior English wheat were cheaper. Flour
was dull.

A Powerful Ally.
St. Paul, Minn., Sept. 27. The North
western Chronicle, the personal organ of
Bishop Ireland of the Catholic church, has
a strong euuorau touav inuorsiug mc xvz
nublican Dlatforms of Minnesota, "Wiscon
sin and Dakota, virtually pledging the
support of the church to Repubhcan can
didates in these states. The Chronicle says:
At least one of the great political parties
has had courage to break away from saloon
domination and to declare itself openly in
favor of controlling the liquor traffic.
Gradually this temperance issue becomes
more and more prominent in politics until
today the Rcpubliam platforms of Wiscon
sin, Minnesota and Dakota are pledged to
an endorsement of high license. There am
be no question as to where the friends of
temperance, of law and order, of sobriety
and of good government must take their
stand this fall.
Between Ames with his wide-open poli
tics, standing on a free platform, with Col
umbia league at his back, openly declaring
that they will capture the legislature in the
interests of rum, and McGill, as the nomi
nee of a party pledged to high license and
control of liquor, no advocate of temper
ance, no total abstainer, no enemy of the
saloon, "can hesitate a moment and lc con
sistent. "We have advocated high license
for years, we have written and worked
against rum far and long, and we would
be untrue to ourselves, untrue to the prin
ciples we proclaim, did we not declare
ourselves strongly in favor of the party
that pledges itself to the measures we de
sire to see enforced.
The democratic party prefer low license
high license a "wide pen" policy, to
to high license -a "wide pen police-, to
legislative control of the liquor traffic It
has been its choice.

Consul Williams, ot Havana. transraiUi a
report to the secretary of state, which -
shows that nearly 01 per cent of nil the""
sugar cme product of Culvi, for the first
quarter of thLs year, has found consuming
markets in the United States.
The acting secret ar of the treasury this
afternoon issued the one hundred and for
tv-third call for the redemption of bond.
The call is for fifteen milium dollars of the
55-pcr cents, loan of 1832, to Ih paid on the
first day of Novcmlier.
Acting Secretaty- Muldrow has rendered
a very important decision involving tke
constitutional amendment that "full faith
and credit shall lc given by each state to
the acts, records and judicial procoedbig
of cver3' other state," cirrying out the doc
trine that where a court of one state having
jurisdiction, renders a judgment, that
judgement is conclusive of all matters de
termined therein, and Ls binding oa
the courts of evcr3' other state. The secre
tary extends the application of the doctrine
to the executive departments. The caae
comes up in an important land matter from
Louisiana where the claimant' title to
scrip is founded in the courts of that state
upon succession of proceedings. The de
cision is said to be an able one and I under
stood to be a reversal of one rendered by
ex-Secretary Schurz.
