for a new trial in behalf of the doomed

contrary to the law and evidence; that
there isno evidence in the record support

erred in giving the several instructions

defendants; in admitted irrelevant
testimony an behalf of the people;. in ex

evidence touching the issues involved in
the case; that the closing argument of the
state's attorney was improper in its state

passiveness of the jury, and in its abusive

The Disease in the Chicago Stock
Yards Believed to Have Existed
there for Two Years Past.
Chicago, Ills., Sept. 23. The opinion
among veterinaries and distillers becomes
stronger daily that the disease now affect
ing some of the quarantined cattle has becu
prevailing to a greater or less degree for at
least two years.. Distillers say that cattle
men attributed the diseased condition of
the lungs to the hot slop on which catjlc
are fed. Dr. Salmon said it was doubtful
whether the disease could be prevented
from spreading, even if all the cattle in
quarantine were killed, as cvidencesofar
. . , . . . . ' ... . 1
obtaiued, tended to show
that the number
of animals examined by state veterinaries
had caught the disease before being
taken to the cattle sheds. One reason that
it had not been discovered sooner was that
the veterinarian is not paid for ferreting
out the disease and is merely allowed per
diem for doing his work when the con
tagion has broke out.
-Members of Ihe commission and the
state veterinary were telegraphed for last
night to go to Pekin, where they have been
summoned to appear as witnesses in a civil
suit brought against the state, and today's

disposing of quarantined cattle is indefinit
1 he board of live stock commissioners
returned today and visited the places where
the cattle are quarantined. The board arc
now waiting for actionjby the state author
ities. A report has been forwarded to
Springfield and Washington, and anv other
action that is taken will come from the
authorities. Prof. Salmon, -chief of the
bureau of animal iudustry, believes that all
the animals have been quarantined and that
the supposed plague can be controlled
within the present limits.
Prof. Salmon said it would cost $50,000
or 60,000 to indemnify the owners of the
afllictcd cattle for the slaughter of them.
He did not know what further action
would be taken by the board, but every
effort would be made to rid the city and
state of the disease. Prof. SiUmou will
remain here for a few days aud then go to

missioner Coleman of the bureau of agri
culture, received a letter from Dr. Salmon,
dated Chicago, September 2."3, in which he
says in reference to the outbreak of pleuro
pneumonia at that city: Since telegraphing
you I have had the watch strengthened at
the infected stables to prevent animals from
being removed. There arc twenty-nine
men now employed, making the expense
$90 a day. This was necessary in order to
give the "state board time to decide what
