the showing at the bottom of the
shaft being such as to lead to the be
lIef that before the present contract is

will be uncovered and even now con
siderable ore is being taken out which
shows metallic values of 62 per cent
had S4 ounces silver and 20 in gold

Treatment Becommended By Prof
aierll of Agricultural College
Logan Utah March 22 180S
To the Editor A great many Inquiries
are being received at the station in re
gard to the disease commonly known
as blackleg This disease causes the
death of many hundred calves and
young cattle yearly in our state and
i would be difficult to estimate the to
tal annual loss In the United States I
is a dIsease more urevalent during the
spring months but June July August
and September are the only months
exempt from outbreaks of this disease
Complaints have been made that al
ready this spring hundreds of calves
have been lost by this disease and the
purpose of this paper is to give some
information to prevent impossible this
annual loss to our farmers
An animal with blackleg moves
stifliy some one of the four legs de
pending upon which part of tho body i
the disease settles in being very
stiff and requiring an especial effort I
on the part of the sick animal to use it I
The disease may settle on either
side but during a visit recently to a I
ox Elder l county farm where the dis
I I uasc was prevalent 1 noticed that In
I every case it was the left side that
hal been attacked The most charac
I teristic symptom of the disease Is the
formation of gas directly beneath the
j j skin of the affected part The tissue
j I is swollen and tense the circulation of
the bloat is arrested and the affected
part appears colder to the touch than
I other portions of the body The treat
ment of animals already sick with
I blackleg l is I rarely satisfactory 1
I Good results have been obtained
i I from exercising an animal violently i I j
1 when the first symptoms are observed j
i Place a boy on a horse and run the j I
j I calves around the pasture to secure
I j rapid circulation and prevent blood
I I from settling in any part of body
1 Bleeding from the jugular vein in early I I
I stages is also practiced from one to
four quarts of blood being drawn from I
I the animal The treatment should be i
j i however preventive A remedy which

Senator Gallingers Trip to Cuba Gave
Him Ample Field For Observation
Description of Matanzas Even
In Havana Hunger Stalks Abroa
Senators Grand Period at Close
Washington March 3A vivid word I
picture of the barbarities and destitu
tion in the island of Cuba was drawn in
the senate today by Mr Gallinger of
New Hampshire The senator recently
visited Cuba to study the situation
there Long before the senate convened
the galleries were packed
Mr Gallinger spoke in a low clear
tone of voice distinctly audible
throughout the chamber There was
not an interruption by word through
out his speech His auditors listened in
tently to his description of the horrors
and cruelties suffered by the recon
centrados When he declared
ever that a government that
starve 400000 of its people would do
an thlng and followed this with a fur
ther declaration that the lives of the
brave men lost in the Maine disaster
cculd not be atoned for with gold or
silver a spontaneous wave of applause
swept I over the galleries and the vice
president der had difficulty in restoring or
derIn opening his speech Mr Gallinger
the calm dispassionate
said that after cr
and touching statement concerning
Cuba made in the senate recently by
Mr Proctor of Vermont it might be
well for him to remain silent but
yielding to > the desire expressed by
many of his colleagues he had con
I sented to give a plain recital of some
of his observations on that unhappy
HfTreferred to the efforts made by
the Cubans in iSIS in 1844 in 1848 in
1850 in ISol In 1SGS and again in 1895
to break the chains that bound them
to Spain in order that they mighfes
tablish for themselves a free govern
ment upon the soil that was rightly
theirs Save the last all these efforts
have ended in failure That failure is
historic and need not be recounted Mr
i Gallinger then detailed some ofthe
I I events leading up to his arrival in
Cuba and of his reception by Consul
I General Lee
General Leesaid he is deserving
of the highest possible praise for the
manner in which he conducted himself
in Havana Cool and fearless in the
midst of difficulties and dangers he
never loses sight of the fact that he
is an American citizen nor is he un
mindful of the tremendous responsibility
ity and duty of his position
Referring to his call upon the au
tonomist cabinet Mr Gallinger said it
was evident that the president of the
cabinet was not encouraged in the
The truth is said Mr Gallinger
autonomy is a flat failure opposed
alike by the ultraSpaniards and the
Cubans The leaders of the Insurrec
tion have not forgotten how they were
treated by Spain in 1S7S and thebland
iphments and bribes being now offered
them are spurned with contempt
41 Better death death than autonomy
said a leading Cubanto me for au
tonomy is only a pretenseunder which
we would again be slaves to Spain
Mr Gallinger recalled that he had
heard during debates in the senate de
I nials made that a state of war existed
in Cuba hut it required only a brief
personal observation to convince one
I that war actually did exist
A desolated country and Is stricken
people told the story more eloquently I
than It c could be conveyed in words i
The wr ii i Cuba however he said j
is a war of itarvatHJft and extermina
tion a war more cruel than the world
has ever known
The RTinnnIi trrnns do not ImnreSS I
I Americara w roat soldiers Theyare
I under a inx discipline and are poorly
uniformed rr l inadequately fed The
I high CIlk fain Co most of their fighting
in hotels and cafes the actual fighting
j being done by those of inferior grades
I On the contrary the insurgents are
comfortably cad and under strict dis
j I cipline They occupy a large part of
i I the island and could in Mr Gallingers
1 judgment take Havana t Matanzas
whenever it might suit their purpose
alhTRfc these cities could not be held
for lack or a navy
jj i cnes in the streets of Havana
are hsrroving beyond description Peo
plf in uint and suffering are ever
whre seen and walking skeletons are
met on every hand Naked children
emaciated and ragged women anddis
eased and starving men throng the
streets the hotel lobbies and every
place of public resort I is a terrible
sight one that sickens the heart and
quickens every Impulse of human sym I
pathy and love f
Under the very shadow of cathedrals
and churches where Spains authority I
is absolute and unquestioned the most
horrible conditions are conceded to ex
ist Many have refused to believe that
a great government was waging a war
of extermination instead t > f a war of I
honor yet such is an absolute fact A
visit was paid to the orphanage which I
is now under the care of Miss Clara
Barton I contains now about 50 chil I
dren almost every one of whom is a
victim or starvation JJr Lesser one
I of Miss Bartons assistants has had
experience in the Armenian and In
dian famines but he declares that the
famine in Cuba is wore than that in
Armenia ana pictures he drew of the
terrible suffering and starvation in the
island more than confirm all that has
been written upon the subject
bexn I
J r 3
A detailed story of a visit I to Los
Aocas the place where the reconcen I
trados daily assemble to get food was I
also given A few weeks ago when Miss
Barton discovered the place there were
643 people lying on the floors many of j j
them entirely nude and all suffering
the pangs of starvation Much has
been don by the Red Cross society to
alleviate the condition of those who still
remain but scores of men women and
children are yet there gaunt and briny
almost as a skeleton many of them
covered with sores directly traceable to
insufficient food I
What a chapter of horrors and death
is that and still the tragedy goes on I
How much longer shall i continue
largely depends upon the forbearance
of a great people who through suffer
ing and sorrow achieved their own in
dependence and whose sympathies
have always gone out to the oppressed
of all nat ns of the world I
A vivid picture was then drawn by
Mr Gallinger of a trip to the city of
Matanzas AH along the route were
wretched people in rags but not tuntil
the city was reached was the full ex
tent of the suffering realized I oc
curred to me as I looked upon the
scene of sufferings and horrors that
the Cuban reconcentrados might well
have adopted the words of Dante Who
enters here leave hope behind when
they were driven from the fields and
herded Ute cattle In the cities and
towns of this fertile land The truth I
is that Weyler devised a scheme of
human suffering and sorrow that put I
Dantes Inferno In the shade and
I converted a contented prosperous peo
ple into a herd of fU1 ring starving
unfortunates x I
Matanzas is literally a place of beg
gary and death Never before did my
eyes behold such suffering and never
again do I expect to see such havoc
wrought through a cruel and inhuman
decree A visit to the Matanzai hos
pitals revealed an even more shocking
condition than the streets Members
I of the Red Cross society who had vis
ited one of the hospitals two weeks
before were almost overcome upon dis
covering that nearly every one of the
inmates at that time had since died
There poverty sorrow and suffering
were depicted in their worst forms
Children gaunt in face but with ab
domen and limbs terribly swollen
women in the last stage of emaciation
and men rapidly drifting to death I
there was food in these hospitals said I
Mr Gallinser HI did not discover it
neither were there signs of medicine
or of proper nourishing and care
The governor of Matanzas informed
Mr Gallinger that the first day he oc
I cupied the palace 15 persons had died
In the court yard He said further that I
in the city 1200 had died in November
1200 in December 700 in January and
500 in February The death rate was
decreasing simply because the recon
centiados by death were becoming
The number of people who have
i starved in Cuba will never be definitely
i known I Is estimated that 800000 were
I driven from their homes into the cities
and towns I had i from Spanish au
thority that according to their figures
225000 already have perished but It
is said that the Red Cross society is in
possession of figures showing that 425
000 Cubans have died as the result of
starvation and that 200000 more must
inevitably die
I have been asked many times what
of the Maine I do not know This
however I do know A government
that will deliberately starve 400000 of
its own people will do pretty much any
thing I the ship was blown up from
the outside what should our govern
ment do Perhaps I should forbear to

Mr GaUInger said there was little
real loyalty to Spain in Cuba a would
be demonstrated when the hour of trial
should come He did not believe that
Spain could subdue the nsurgents The
Cubans had been oppressed so long that
they preferred death to Spanish rule
Discussing the question of Spanish
rule Mr Gallinger referred to the mat
ter of taxation In addition to all di
rect and indirect taxes on real estate
there is a tax on every door every
window and every chimney in every
house on every letter in every busi
ness sign and on every name on every
hotel register Licenses are required to
build houses and paint houses There is
a tax on food animals as a whole spe
cial taxes on horns the hoofs and the
hide In addition to all ibis the inter
est on the debt is a tremendous burden
the salaries of the Spanish officials are
beyond all reason and the amount of
money wrung from the Cubans to keep
the Madrid government from complete
insolvency is simply enormous
No people on the face of the earth
have been so oppressed the treasury of
Spain being literally supplied from the
revenues extorted from Cuba and the
Philippine Islands
Our forefathers went to war because
the mother country put a tax on tea
Cuba has ten thousand more reasons
than we had for rebellion and she de
serves the sympathy and help of every
true American
Fortunately the people of this great
republic are thoroughly aroused to the
situation and the great heart of the I
American populace is in full sympathy
with Cuba Religion and humanity 1
alike demand that the war shall cease
and cease i should even though the
glitter and glamor of military rule shall
end and a decaying and dissolute
decayinS I
throne shall pass away never to re
As to what should be done Mr Gal
linger felt that sooner or later this gov
ernment would of necessity absorb
Cuba but i anncxationcannot now
hf jirwimnHRlipil let it snppdllv come
I American interests in Cuba said he
in conclusion have already suffered
I enough We have patrolled our coasts
in the interest of Spain as long as we
should and we have spent quite too
j I much money in protecting our people
from epidemic diseases coming to our
I shores because of the unsanitary condi
tion of the harbor and city of Havana
Spain has failed to meet the require
ments of an advancing civilization Let
the United States or Cuba take up the
problem and solve i
