East St. Louis, 111., July 9. For
the first time iu nearly two months
buyers for packing houses bought
cows at the National Stock Yards
yesterday without asking that the
transaction be made subject to a
post mortem inspection.
When buyers saw a cow in a lot
that they did not want the animal
was cut out aud sold separately.
There were enough outside buyers
for "canners" so that the commis
sion men and packers' buyers did
not have to argue over this class

Omaha, Neb., July 9. There
was a meeting yesteraay 01 me
commission men aud packing house
managers to consider the proposi
tion of postmorten examination,
which ended without an agreement
being reached. The packers sub
mitted the proposition to buy fe
male cattle with the understanding
that dairy cows and canners should
be subject to the postmorten and
range "cows and heifers were to be
accepted without question.
One prominent commission man
declared that Omaha would stand
pat with Chicago and insist on hav
ing an oDen market. He said that
the commission men would stand
oa their rights also to sell to in
dependent packers and small butch
ers without discrimination. For
the packers R. C. Howe, manager
for Armour & Co., said he believ
ed the matter would be settled on
the same basis that was reached at
St. Joseph, Kansas City, St. Louis
and Sioux City. He says the com
mission men and packers are get
ting closer together on the proposi
tion and expects the matter will be
straightened out satisfactorily to
Several of the commission men,
however, say that the only way to
straighten it out will be for the
packers to come to their terms

The Great Bigness of Texas
Texas is the biggest state in the
union don't talk back to me: I
know. The upper part of the Pan
handle is nearer Chicago than it is
to Galveston. Texas is as wide as
the distance from Chicago to Bos
ton, or from St. I,ouis to New
York, City. That is to say, that
from Texarkana to EI Paso it is
1100 miles. Texas has .3,000,000
folks, 10,000,000 cattle, 12,000,000
sheen and 3.000.000 horses. One
horse, you see, for every man, wo
man, and child in the state. Peu
