London, Feb. 25.—Thirty-one head of cat

day last, from Portland, Me., are diseased.
The infected animals are Canadian. Such

tario's cargo that there is no fear the dis
ease will spread. There was good reason to j
believe the disease was contracted in Liver- j
pool, as the Ontario took to Portland a cargo
of Herefords which showed disesse after
landing, and It is not believed it places a

Condition of the Cattle.
Mr. R. B. Wilson, who was sent out by the
Northern Pacific road to investigate the con
dition of the live stock along the line of that
road, reports under date of February l.-t.from
Miles City, that stock reports from the north
side of the Yellowstone river are very favor
able. The only loases are from wolves which
! are quite numerous. Young rattle particu-
I krly have suffered. The winter has been
I very- fine. Very little snow having fallen
until February C>, when it commenced snow
ing and continued for several days. Ten
inches of snow fell in the Yellowstone valley
but it has all disappeared, and cattle can
now get the grass without trouble. I have
met Mr. Teasdale, foramen for W. C. Con
ners who put in 5,000 head of cattle on
Powder river. He says the cattle arc in fine
condition for that class. He has lost n-.tL
ing yet and the cattle have not suffered for
feed" or from cold weather at any time this
winter and predicts that unless the
weather should become very severe and the
Bpring late and cold, his loss, need not ex
ceed two per cent.
Mr. Graham, of the stock firm of Johnson
<fc Graham, reports very favorable as to the
condition of the '-attic ou tin* Little Powder
river, where their herd is l-<;ated. The
weather there has been good, with but little
snow. At present there is about six Inches
on the ground. Cattle have not suffered
from want of feed. Range cattle are fat and
state cuttle are in good condition.
Mr. Lewis, of the Pickering, Lewis Cattle
Co., says their herds on the Powder river,
below the mouth of Clear creek, he has nev
er seen cattle looking better or less disposed
to drift off.
No losses have occurred in the herds of
Carpenter dc Robertson, Cook & Anderson
or the De Hart Live Stock company.
The writer does not think that there will
be any serious loss on cattle on ranges tribu
tary to Miles City. There will be some loss
on state cattle, but what it will be no one
can tell at present. He thinks that range cut
tle will come out in better condition than
they did a year ago." The stockmen ate all
in the best of spirits.
Another New Railroad.
[Lar&nore Pioneer 21st.]
Mr. A. P. Hcndrickson returned to-day
and from him we learn the real facts In re
gard to this new railroad. The company was
organized at Fargo January 20, and has ob
tained a charter, which has been accepted by
the board of directors. The charter author
izes them to build and operate a line of rail
way from Fargo via Larimore to the boundary
line. Tbe following officers have been elected:
President, Thos. S. Edison.
Vice President, W. A. Kindred.
Secretary, A. P. Hendrickson.
Treasurer, W. ('. Woodruff.
Messrs. Edison , and Hendrickson have
been appointed right of way agents, who will
begin at once to complete the right of way,
which they begun some time since and in
which they received such strong encourage
The road will be built by the Fargo, Lari
more ifc Gorthcrn Railroad company, backed
by eastern capital, and will be operated in
conjunction with the Fargo Southern rail
.Mr. Thos. S. Edison has just returned
from Canada and the eastern states, where
he secured $2,000,000 to complete the road
bed, aud it will be ironed and operated by the
company which has been organized and we are
authorized to say this new company's back
ing is a strong Chicago company, and one
that will run its roads independent of any
other, thus securing free competition. Also
the fact that men prominently connected
with the Fargo Southern arc on the board of
directors of the Fargo, Larimore & Northern
decides beyond a doubt that we are to have
an independent outlet to Chicago and the
The importance of this enterprise is hard
to overestimate. It will be the making of
the Elk valley and its beautiful city, and all
will heartily c-ooperate in its advancement.
One thing important must be known.
There is no provision to purchase a right of
way. This must be donated to the company
or the road cannot be built. About this
there will be no trouble' though, as all are
anxious enough to see a competing railroad.
Let everybody put a shoulder to the wheel,
secure the right of way at once, and we will
have another road to help ship next year's
Trying for a Better Position.
Cincinnati, Feb. 25.—A meeting of the
directors of the Ohio & Mississippi railroad
was held here to-day. There were present
Robert Garrett, Jas. Sloan, Jr., W. T. Mon
tague, J. L. Donaldson, C. R. Goodwin,
Edward Higgius, Jr., A. C. Crane, W. E.
Guy, Judge A. B. Patterson, from Baltimore;
Edward L. Whittaker, St. Louis; J. J. Jack
son,. Parkersburg; W. T. McClintick. Chilli
cothe, Ohio; J. M. Douglass, receiver, and
W. W. Peabody, general manager. After a
somewhat extended conference, resolutions
were adopted, by a very decided majority,
authorizing the executive and finance com
mittee to dispose of the new five per cent,
mortgage bonds of the company to an amount
necessary to pay all arrears of indebtedness,
so as to release the railway and other proper
ty from the custody of the courts, and put
the company again in control. Strong con
fidence was expressed by the committee in
their ability to place the bonds with very little
delay. Provision was made for an early ap
plication to the court for the proper order to
restore the railway to the company, and for
the settlement of the receiver's accounts. It
is believed this valuable property will soon
again be operated, free from restrictions,
which necessarily trammel the receiver, and
enable its managers to place it in a strong
and independent attitude, so as to com
mand the traffic to which the line is justly
The Chicago & Atlantic Eastern Connections
Chicago, Feb. 24.—There is a possibility
that the Chicago & Atlantic will lose its east
ern connection, now enjoyed in the New
York, Pennsylvania & Ohio. If McHenry is
successful in his suits, now pending in
Cleveland for the possession of the latter,
such will be the case. A well-informed rail
road official in conversation yesterday,
thought that the New York, Pennsylvania &
Ohio would be able to continue its eastern
business without interruption, even if
wrested from the Erie, and would also mak
satisfaetory arrangements for a western out
let, though cut off from the Chi
cago & Atlantic. "You know,"
he said, "that President Sloan, of
the Lackawanna is anxious to get a western
line, and if McHenry secures possession
there is no doubt that ft will immediately be
leased to the Lackawanna. The two roads
might connect at Carry, Pennsylvania. Mr.
Sloan needs the road while Mr. Jewett
never cared for it, rathea pre
ferring to . build a line of his
own. At Mansfield, O., connections could
be made with the Ft. Wayne and thus have a
first-class line to Chicago. If McHenry is
successful in his suits, aud I have no doubt
that he will be, rapid changes will at once be
made in the connection of the New York,
Pennsylvania & Ohio.

A Postoffice Fight.
[Washington Letter.]
Among the president's nominations sent
to the senate was that of Miss Melissa A.
Pemberton to be postmaster at Fredonia, N.
Y. Some discontent is expressed among the
New York delegation at this selection. They'
are understood to favor the claims of S. L.
Wilson for the place. Wilson lost both legs
in the war, and was for a long time one of
the door-keepers of the senate, until the
Democrats turned him out in 1879. He was
warmly recommended by influential Republi
cans, and it is said that his appointment
was promised to them by the president. Some
tima ago the friends of Miss Pemberton, who
is a clerk in the postoffice at Fredonia, started
a story to the effect that Wilson, if. he should
be made postmaster, wouldturn out all present
employes of the office, Miss Pemberton includ
ed, and fill it with his friends. They got up
a petition in her favor, and her brother, it
seems, with this petition in his pocket, ar
rived here a couple of weeks ago. To judge
