So Snyn the Nebraska Xrailwr of the Cabl nt t Co.jn 8 Vet Cent, of the Exporta tion to Do the Inspecting Lorhrrn I f Another Knle of Interest to Tho,e Who Want Penninns Treanry Conittrne tion r the Sherman U-. Washington, July 14 A short time ago Secretary Morton issued a circular ad dre si-d to the patters of meat in which he asked for views as to the advisability of diminishing the force of employes in the bureau of animal industry, and whether or not the insjiection of meat conducted by the Imre.m at the expense cf the govern ment oupht i:"t to lie cndnrted by the ex porters theinc'.ves. Tlie f ritioism f. -"''.owing this circular was to the efTect that the secrttarv propose.1 toabaTV'ti the inspec tion of n.eat. and ti er l.y tlirea'eried tbe stoppnt'C of r.ll e.-;p!T" .it ! rs. Say the Law Is. a Failure. ''I have n-t prr.po-eci the st"ppne of meat inspection," said Secretary Morton, discussinir this subjcjt, "for the law dis tinctly says that it shall go on and no officer has the power to abrogate the law, enacted by congress. However, under that law there is a discretionary power which enables the secretary to reduce ex penses, especially unnecessary ones. If the becefits to lie derived from the law are supposed to 1 in the direction of cre ating a demand for our meats abroad, then the law is a failure. The inspection of beef for export becan May Is. and the first shipment of inspected beef was ma le May 22. four days later. The microscopic Inspection of pork for export began June 22, 1501, and the first inspected pork ex ported was shipped Sept. 5, ls;i. Costs 8 I'rr Cent of the Export. "Since inspection hesan, up to May 31 last, a period of a little more than two years, we have sold to countries demand ing a certifir-ate cf inspection meat of the value of 4,"77.443. During the same period we have paid to microscopists for salaries alone, to in-peet this same meat, the sum of i;'2i.4'.!. and before they could begin their work the government laid out tM" for microscopes. The other inciden tal expenses amounted to iW.; so that the total for all expenses of inspecting this meat was s per cent of the value of the en tire product sold by reason of the inspec tion. "nurran of Animal Indolence." "The countries requiring this inspection, and to which this meat was sent, are Ger many, France, Denmark, Italy, Spain and Austria. Xow look at the other side of the question. During the same period we have sold to countries not demanding this inspection meat to the amount of more than ?:4.nno.(KM) and that, too. without the cost of a dollar to the general public." Secretary Morton gave as an illustration of the way in which, as he facetiously termed it, the "bureau of animal in dolenee'' had grown, the facts in the case of the two stations at Omaha and Kansas City. Say Their Basinets Will Be Rained. At these two houses the government has paid out more than $24,000 in salaries to inspectors of meat for export, and yet the reports of the customs officers show that not $1 worth of meat has been exported by the packers in these two cities. In reply to the secretary's letters these firms, along with others, say that their business will be ruined if tbe inspection is done away with, and that it will be impossible for the pack ers to have it done at their own expense on account of the "present narrow margin of profit." LOCHREN WANTS MORE PROOF. An Order That Will He of Interest to Ap licant for Pensions. Washington, July 14. Commissioner Lochren, of the pension bureau, has issued an order directing that hereafter in mak ing calls upon the war and navy depart ments for information regarding the ser vice of applicants for pension under the act of June 27, a request shall be made for a full military and medical his tory of the soldier. Hitherto these calls have asked only for the dates of the sol dier's enlistment and discharge. This new order is important from the fact that it shows a purrmse on the part of the pension officials to make a more search ing inquiry than formerly into the causes of the applicant's disability and ascertain from official sources whether it may not Lave resulted from his own vicious habits. This information is material, as under the net of June 27, 1890, such applicants are specifically barred from receiving pen sions. Altjreld Endorsed at Washington. Washington, July 14.
