Chicago. Feb.
26—
Cattle—Steers were
slow and dull, without quotable change.
Butchers' stuff was steady, but there
was little demand for this or any oth

largely as the result of liberal receipts.
The three roads report 796 cars in
sight l'or today, which is interpreted to
mean a moderate supply. Last ed
nesday's receipts were very small be
cause of the snow blockade, and to
morrow most traders look for from 10,
000 to 20,000 head. Probabilities are
that receipts will be lighter tiiis week
than last, for the opening day showed
a shortage of 10.000 head. This ougnt

outlet for the beef is normal.
Hogs.
Hogs were 5 to 10 cents lower. Ship
ping demand was small, with packers

Receipts were too heavy for the need.
of the trade.
Shippers' purchases for February to
date are around 240.out), or about. 100.
000 more than a year ago. Somebody
must be making money cutting up
hogs, or they would not be bought in
this off-hand manner. This bulge lias
put Chicago right up with eastern
markets, a fact that country buyers
must not overlook. Some orders were
countermanded today because Chicago
was high compared with Pittsburg and
Buffalo.

four days of the month at 100.000. Feb

Sheep were strong r.nd lambs weak.
The market was a slow one and there
was but meagre trading.

Senate Committee Upholds His
Action Discharging ftegro
Troops
LONG INVESTIGATION ENDS
Committee Holds That Shooting at
Brownsville Was Done by Soldiers,
and That Guilty Ones Could Not Be
Singled Out Foraker May Carry
Fight to Floor of Senate.
Washington. Feb. 26.—President
Roosevelt's action in dismissing a bat
talion of negro soldiers of the Twenty
fifth infantry because of the Browns
ville. Texas, riots, was indorsed by the
senate committee on military affairs
yesterday by a vote of S to 4.
The committee found that the shoot
ing at Brownsville on the nights of
August 13 and 14. 1!»(»fi. was done by
some soldiers of the Twenty-fifth in
fantry, but that the testimony was not
definite enough to identify the guilty
men. Four members of the committee
voted against this finding, and one
member did not vote at all. The res
olution declaring the guilt of the ne
groes was submitted by Senator Lodge
and was adopted after five resolutions
by Senator Foraker and one by Sena
tor Dupont had been offered as substi
tutes.
The vote was reached after a pro
longed investigation extending over
two sessions of congress, and evidence
had been taken covering thousands of
pages. Practically every negro of the
three companies of infantry dishonor
ably discharged by President Roose
velt testified in his own behalf, while
evidence in support of the president
was given by many army officers and
citizens of Brownsville.
Thruotit the entire controversy the
anti-administration fighf has been di
rected by Senator Foraker. In the
final vote in the committee a majority
of republican members came to his
support. The Ohio senator expressed
himself as greatly gratified at this, as
it was apparent from the outset that
all of the members were convinced
that the negroes did the shooting.
The fight will be carried to the floor
of the senate. The reports of the com
mittee will not be submitted for about
ten days, as Senator Warner, who
conducted the examination of witnesses
on behalf of the administration, will
be absent from Washington for that
period. Action by the committee
therefore will be postponed until his
return. After the reports have been
made to the senate it Is expected that
Senator Foraker will press the matter
to a vote then. If he should secure the
same proportion of the republican
mennbers as he had in the committee,
the report will be defeated.
The Ohio senator proposes to Intro-j
duce a bill to restore to the military!
service, such of the discharged negroes
as were shown beyond a reasonable
doubt to have been innocent of any
offense connected with the affray.
The committee was in session yes
terday for nearly three hours. It was
in the main harmonious. Practically
the only passages at arms were of a
preliminary nature.
Senator Lodge offered a resolution
a« follows when the matter came to a
vote:
"That in the opinion of the commit
tee the shooting affray in Brownsville
on the night of Aug. 13-14, was done by
some of the soldiers belonging to the
Twenty-fifth ITnited States infantry
stationed at Fort Brown, Tex."
Senator Foraker offered as a substi
tute the following:
"The testimony wholly fails to iden
tify the individuals or any of them who
participated in the shooting affair."
The Foraker substitute was defeated
by a. vote of 8 to 5. the affirmatives
being: Scott, Foraker, Bulkeley and
Dupont. The negative votes were:
Warren, Lodge, Warner, Taliaferro,
Foster, Overman, Frazier and Mc-
