"I wao somewhat annoyed," said Mr.

Mr. Day replied:
"That will depend entirely upon what

Chicago, Jan. 9.—Last week, for the
first time in several months, the aver
age weight of hogs showed a little gain
?ver the previous week. It has been the
rule almost ever since the middle of
September that the average weight has
dropped down a little each week, until
for t'he last week in September the
weight was only 196 pounds. Last week
the average was 200 pounds, but it re
mains to be seen whether this Is the
end of decreasing weight. Logically it
would seem that the limit has been
reached and that the weight should
show some increase from this time on.

of cattle on feed in the Sunflower state.
The western half of the state has Its
full quota of cattle. The shortage Is
in the eastern half or the state, from
which cattle were forced to market last
summer "by the drought. There will be
a heavy falling off of corn-fed cattle
for a few months, but there will be a
liberal supply of hay-fed cattle, and
cattle from the ranges andi wheat pas
tures which will be in good condition
for Slaughter."

constdera'blc nerve to feed corn at $1.25
per hundred and hay at $5 m?r 'ton to
lambs that cost $2.25 in the feed lots,
and then watch them sell at prices less
than they cost. They say It will take
about $7 to make the feeder sure of a
profit this season.

An Edict Issued Ordering the De
capitation of the Notorious
Anti Foreigner.
Tung Fu Charged With Murder
ing Belgian Missionaries
in Chihli Province.
The Dowager Empress Came
Back to Pekin With Consid*
erable Apprehension.
Pekin, Jan. 9.—An edict has been
signed by the dowager empress order
ing the decapitation of Gen. Tung Fu
llslang, the notorious anti-foreigner. A
Tartar general in Kansu province has
been ordered to carry out this sentence.
Yuan Shai Kai, the viceroy of Chlhll
province, and a number of other lnfluen
tial officials, memorialized the throne,
charging Tung Fu Hslang with the
murder of Belgian missionaries and
urging his execution before he could In
stitute rebelion and Involve China in
trouble with foreign governments.
All evidences indicate that the emperor
of China is now more completely under
the domination of the dowager empress
than he was before the Chinese court
went into exile. Several high officials
were granted audiences today, during
which the emperor filled the role of a
flgurehc-ad. The empress dowager sat
on his majesty's left and conducted the
conversations. According to the' ac
counts of two of the officials who were
received today, the dowager empress
Ignored the emperor and the latter did
not attempt to take any .part In the
affair. These officials say his majesty
appeared melancholy and listless. The
principal topic of conversation during
these audiences was the presence in
Pekin of the foreign garrisons. The
dowager empress seemed impressed with
the necessity of a conciliatory policy.
Evidence accumulates pointing to the
timidity of the dowager empress about
coming back to Pekin. Her first remark
upon alighting at the Machlapu station
yesterday was: "Where are the foreign
t.oldiers?" Upon seeing a number of
newspaper correspondents at the station
the dowager empress bowed to them ob
sequiously. Before leaving Pao
ting-Fu In the special train yesterday
the dowager empress requested Traffic
Manager Foley of the railroad not to
use the locomotive whistle, explaining
that she was extremely nervous and that
the whistle frightened her.
The dowager empress proposes to
decorate the American and Japanese
officers who guarded the imperial pal
ace during the court's absence. She
will also confer decorations upon of
ficers and engineers who had charge of
the Imperial train during thj railroad
Journey from Paoting-Fu.
Notwithstanding the imperial declara
tion that the return to Pekin would be
a simple affair and that economy must
be observed, the Journey from Singan
Fu was an extravagant parade. The
court had an immense following, and
a wide swath of country was laid waste
by the extortion and blackmail of the
eunuchs and retinue. The expenses of
the entertainment of the court in the
province of Chihli are estimated at
2,000,000 taels. This Is less than in other
provinces, because of the railway facili
ties In Chihli. It is frequently charged
that enough money has been spent in
the triumphal return of the court to pay
the interest on the indemnity to the al
lies for a year. The eunuchs squeezed
out 100,000 taels In Chihli and 250,000
taels in Honan.
The reputed splendor of the court be
fore its arrival .at the capital Is not
fcredlted. Accounts received here Indi
cate that previous to its' arrival at Pao
ting-Fu the court presented the ap
pearance of a mean, motley crowd of
The director of railroads and mines
of Shan-Sl province visited United
fetates Minister Conger today, and said
that a branch of the Belgian railroad
will be extended to Shan-Sl in the
spring. He explained the great mining
resources of the province and requested
Conger to exert his Influence to induce
Americans to Invest capital in the prov
ince, saying that the policy of the United
States during the recent troubles had led
the Chinese to prefer dealing with
Americans, as they have greater confl
dence in their honeBty.
