it sees." and another: "A man will not
tell what he has not heard:" bnt some
idea of their riches can be had from the
fact that since 1815 they have raised for

Washington, March 30. An applica
tion was received by Secretary Kusk,
yesterday, from Nelson Morris, of Chi
cago, for inspection nnder the law of
March 4, 1$91, of hogs and hog products
designed by him for export abroad.
The regulations for such inspection are
already drawn np so far as necessary
for compliance with the requirements
of the law. In some details these reg
ulations may be modi fie I as experience
indicates to be necessary so as to mini
mize as much as possible any incon
venience or expense entailed upon the
trade, keeping in view, however, the
secretary's determination to carry out
to the fnll the powers given him under
the law to secure su.h an inspection as
will absolutely forbid on the part of
any foreign government suspicion or
accusation regarding the healthfulness
oNnr animal food products.
So far as Mr. Morris is concerned he
expresses the utmost confidence in th-j
good results of the law and every will
ingness toco-operate in fully carrying it
ont Keferring to this law anil to that
which provides for the regulation by
the secretary of agriculture of the con
dition of cattle-carrying vessels, he de
clares his conviction that these laws
will help the farming and cattle-raising
interests beyond anything now possible
to estimate. Foreign countries, he
says, will not takeonr animal pmdncts
for human food without inspection, and
he is persuaded that by these two bills
becoming a law millions will lie saved to
this country. He believesanotherresnlt
will be, by securing a foreign
export demand as an escape valve for
our export products, to greatly mini
mize gambling in hog products, hereto
fore so prevalent As to the cattle-carrying
vessel inspection bill, he gives it
as his experience as one of the largest
cattle-shippers in this county, that
heretofore the captain of the vessel has
been absolute master on the ocean with
the result that the poor dumb beasts
have been liable to ill treatment, an
evil which will be fully remedied nnder
the provisions of the bill in question.
He adds that whereas he is now killing
2.500 hogs per day and hopes to soon
increase that number to .-"-.00 , he would
Dot have killed any had not the in
spection bill become a law.
rnoswal and Significant Activity ia the

Between Riusia and France I'ndoahtedly
a Disturbing Faction TheSoeialist Prop
aganda la the Armies or fcnrope.
London, March 30. Last erening's
advices from llerlin state that unusual
activity has prevailed for the past three
days in the war office, and that an un
usual number of employes were bnsy at
the office yesterday. The emperor had
a long audience with Chancellor Ca
pri vi, and the high officials generally
look as if something important was on
the tapis. There is no doubt that the
movements of Russian troops n ar the
German frontier and the evidence of
cordial intimacy between Russia anil
France have caused much anxiety in
Berlin, and it is possible that the
alarm caused by the apprehension
of war may lead to important military
changes. Itcside the thought that Rus
sia and France may be preparing for
war, the German government is said to
be very much stirred up over startling
facts that have been disclosed in regard
to the socialistic propaganda in the
army. The military authorities have
come into possession, through a recent
arrest of evidence going to show that
the social democracy has been spread
ing its doctrines through the ranks of
the army and navy, and has made nu
merous proselytes, and that the
propagation of socialism among
the troops is not confined to
Germany, but is systematical ly
carried on throughout Europe, with the
exception of Russia, and that all the
armies of western Europe are honey
combed with the subrersire ideas of
pledged enemies of established institu
tions. The kaiser, it is stated, has
given directions that the evil should lie
dealt with most radically, so far as
Germany is concerned, ami any fiieer
or soldier detected in propagating the
prohibited opinions shall be punished
with the utmost severity.
The Dominion Government lias Received
No Not 1 Heat loo In Reference to Free

Ottawa, Ont. March 29. A Glou
cester (Mass.) telegram states that
C nited States Consul Maloney at St
Johns, N. F., had stated that bait li
cense this season for United States ves
sels will be free. The Dominion gov
ernment has received no official infor
mation in reference to the Newfound
land fishery regulations for next season
beyond the intimation that the bait act
of last year is likely to lie renewed.
Members of government here are un
willing to believe that the Newfound
landers, even in a fit of exasperation at
the home government would go to the
length of surrendering their only hold
on Washington authorities, especially
in view of the strong probability of the
Atlantic fisheries coming up for settle

time before the outbreak at Pine Ridge
agency a letter was received here from
Rev. Father Francis M.. J. Craft the
Indian missionary, predicting the dis
turbance. Sunday a letter was re
ceived in this city by Mr. Engenc T.
MeAuIiffe from Father Craft who is
his personal friend, predicting another
disastrous outbreak among the Indians
at the agency unless the manairement
of the Indian troubles is at once trans
ferred to the war department He says
the canses of the trouble still exist
and the Indians are at the mercy of
any rascal who finds it to his interest
to annoy them. The only thing that
hinders a speedy and permanent settle
ment of all difficulties Iry an immedi
ate transfer of the Indians to the war
department, is the desire of politicians
to retain the plunder. The American
people should turn their politicians out
of office, and not allow them to return.
