State Stock inspection Laws
Are Held Valid.
BY FEDERAL SUPREME COURT
National Livestock Association Loses
Jis Tent Case, an Cattle Are Sub
ject to Inspection at Every
WASHINGTON, Dec. 1. The United
States Supreme Court today sustained the
constitutionality of the stock quarantine
law of Colorado. The decision was based.
upon the case of S. H. Reed vs. the People
of Colorado. The law prohibits the Impor
tation of cattle or other livestock Into the
state from points south of the S6th par
allel of latitude between April and Novem
ber unless they bear bills of health. The
court held the law to ba In accord with
the right of the state to protect Its own
In the course of his opinion. Justice
Harlan said that the cattle In question
were on the way from Texas to Wyoming1
.and that it was admitted that they were
3iot infected by an contagious disease.
Referring to the contention that the Colo
rado law is antagonistic to the National
.animal Industry" act. Justice Harlan said:
"Our conclusion Is that the statute of
Colorado as here involved does not cover
the same ground as the act of Congress;
and its Constitutionality is not to be
questioned unless It be In violation of the
Constitution of the United State's Inde
pendently of any legislation of Congress."
Of the claims that one state has a right
to ship livestock from one state to an
other, the court said that a state may
protect Its pe'ople against. Infection and
contagion, "taking care always that the
means employed to that end do not go
beyond the necessities of the case or un
reasonably burden the exercise of privi
leges secured by the Constitution of the
United" States. As .there Is no evidence
In the case as to the practical -operation of
this regulation upon shippers of cattle, as
it does not appear otherwise than thit it
can be obeyed without embarrassment or
without unnecessary delay, the court can
not assume arbitrarily that It was wholly
without authority in the circumstances or
that it unduly burdened the exercise of
the privilege of engaging In Interstate
"As the statute does not forbid the in
troduction of all livestock coming from
the defined territory, but only prescribes
certain methods of protection, and as
those methods have been devised by the
state under Its reserved power to protect
the property of Its people from injury,
and don't appear upon their face to be
unreasonable, we must, in the absence of
evidence to the contrary, assume that
they are appropriate to the object which
the state is entitled to accomplish." "
This was a test case made by the Na
tional Livestock Association to contest
the validity of the Colorado law requir
ing the Inspection by state officers of all
livestock entering the state and the pay
ment of certain fees therefor. The stock
men claimed that when shipments of
stock passing through Colorado had been
passed by a Government Inspector, the
state Inspection was unnecessary, and the
. payment of fees was a burdensome graft.
When Texas cattle are being carried to
the Northern States to be fed in Sum
mer, they may be held up at the boundary
of every state through which they pass
and the fees thus exacted amount to a
considerable sum In the aggregate. Wyo
ming has the same system as Colorado,
but Montana dispenses with a state In
spection of stock which has passed the
Government Inspector, and has been act
ive in fighting the state Inspection laws.
AT THE BIG CATTLE SHOW.
Secretary Wilson Wants the United
States to Prodnce Its Ovrn Meat.
CHICAGO, Dec 1. "The Chicago Inter
national Livestock Exposition Is the most
magnificent expression of progressive
breeding and feeding that there has ever
been in .the history of the world."
James M. Wilson, Secretary of Agrl
culture, paid this compliment to tho big
show In a dedicatory address tonight at
the new Livestock Record building at
the stockyards. It is a three-story brick
structure, and was erected by the Union
Stockyards Company at a cost of $100,,
000. The first floor will be devoted to ag
ricultural exhibits of railways; the sec
ond will be occupied as headquarters by
livestock record societies from all sec
tions of the United States; the third con
tains reading, lounging and clubrooms.
and a lurge auditorium.
W. E. Skinner, general agent of the
stockyards company and general manager
of the exposition, presented the building
tonight to the livestock interests of Amer
ica. Secretary Wibon received it on be
half of the National livestock men. John
Dryden, Minister of Agriculture, 'spoke on
behalf of the stockgrowers of Canada,
and W. E. Harris, United States Senator
from Kansas, spoke for the breeders of
the West. Secretary Wilson, after com
plimenting the donors of the building upon
the present made to the livestock men,
"The most Important feature of this
exposition to me is the presence of the
students from the agricultural colleges."
The Secretary then paid a high tribute
to the value of the work being done by
those Institutions, and went on to eay
"I propose to ask Congress to be gen
erous with us and authorize me to co
operate with the colleges at the experi
ment stations throughout the land along
the lines of breeding. We want to pro
duce what we need In the United States.
I think we have the healthiest animals
In the world In the United States and In
Canada. When you go to the Continent
of Europe you find diseases, there all the
time, for the reason that jurisdiction Is
to cut up. Into small countries that no
one central power can stamp .It out. We
are compelled to shut out everything
from Continental Europe- We are com
pelled to shut out everything from Asia.
We have to ehut out everything In the
The first step toward the establishment
of a permanent livestock exposition to
be held annually In Chicago was taken
tonight at the meeting which Secretary
Wilson addressed. The association is to
be similar to that which for three years
has been conducting the exposition under
the patronage of the Union Stockyards
Company. It Is to consist of life member
ships from nll"parts of this and other
countrfes. The membership fee Is to be
H00, with annual dues of $10 each for
yearly membership. A resolution embody
ing the basis of the new enterprise was
adopted by a unanimous vote.

Cattle Inspectors Kill Sick' Coves and
Spill Mack Milk.
BOSTON. Dec L The Cattle Bureau of
the State Board of Agriculture began to
day a systematic and exhaustive inspec
tion of the. cattle reported as having the
foot and mouth disease. The Cattle Bu
reau representatives found fO cases in
Littleton andWestford in Middlesex Coun
ty, and 80 cases in Attleboro, In Bristol
County. Reports of infection were re
ceived from herds In Stowe, Danvers,
Bridgewater and East Brldgewater. Thou
sands of gallons of milk have been thrown
away by local dealers.
The executive council today adopted an
order which declares that all meat cattle,
sheep and swine upon Infected premises
art to remain In quarantine until such
time as the chief of the cattle bureau de
cides that It Is proper to release them;
that no auctions or public sales of neat
cattle, sheep or swine shall be held in In
fected localities; that the transport of cat
tle, etc., over public highways Is for
bidden at all times when the disease ap
pears to be on the Increase, and that
only those having business there shall 'be
permitted to come front Infected territory
Steamship men arc greatly discouraged
because of the order of the Canadian
government that no vessel clearing from
Bosion shall be permitted to load cattle
at Canadian ports. The order has upset
plans to have Boston ships call at either
Halifax. N. S., or St. John's, N, B., for
livestock, and today there was a rapid
exchange of telegrams with a view to hav
ing the order modified.
The Dominion line steamers, the Eng
lishman and the Merlon, which if was in
tended to send to Halifax for cattle, will
sail directly from Boston to England with
out livestock, the cost of loading at New
York, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Newport
News or any of the Southern ports being
considered too great. The Armenian, of
the Leyland line, and the Corean, of the
Allan line, will also sail for - England
WILL NOT REACH THE WEST.
Secretary Wilson Cay Cattle Dis
ease Will Be Stamped Out.
CHICAGO, Dec. 1. The West is not to
suffer because of the epidemic of hoof
and mouth disease off cattle, hogs ana
sheep In the New England States, says
Secretary of Agriculture Wilson, who ar
rived In Chicago last night to attend the
International Livestock" Exposition.
"The Indications are that we will "be
successful In stamping out the disease
before It reaches this section," he said.
"My latest report from the Infected dis
trict Is that the disease Is at a standstill.
The next report will decide the number
of men that I will send to New England.
But you may be sure a large number
will go. Before many days have passed
there will be several hundred veterinary
surgeons In the New England States, and
they will be Instructed to Inspect every
cow. sheep and hog. I believe we need
three or four weeks to stamp out the dis
ease. "Congress will be asked for a special
appropriation to cure the disease perma
nently. I intend to ask for at least
$1,003,000 for this purpose."
Secretary Wilson will leave for Wash
ington tomorrow night.

CORVALLIS NOT TO BLAME
CAPTAIN GAULT SAYS HE WANTED
TO PLAY ALBANY.
He Wai Given No Time to Consider
"New Propositions, and Contest
Was Called Oft.
CORVALLIS, Or;, Dec. 1. (Special.)
The Qjregon Agricultural College football
eleven had Its last practice game for the
season Saturday afternoon, and has now
gone out of training. Coach Herbold
16ft yesterday for Eugene, and in a day
or two Is to leave Were for Butte, Mont.,
to return to his position In an Important
assay establishment. Coach McFadden,
who -was engaged" to assist In preparing
the Corvallls eleven for the Albany game,
has also left town.
The Oregon Agricultural College men
are well satisfied with the season's work.
They begun as a raw team, many of them
playing under a coach for the first time
In their lives, and went through the Beason
without being scored against by any Ore
gon college team, the University of Oregon
eleven being the only other college team
In the state to enjoy that distinction. The
Corvallls team played the following
scores: Willamette. 0; O. A. C, 67; Uni
versity of Washington, 16; O. A. C. 6;
University of Oregon, 0: O. A. C, 0; Mc
Minnvllle College, 0; O. A. C, 33; Wil
lamette University (return game), 0; O.
A. C., 21; Pacific University, 0; O. A. C, 31.
The prospects of the team next year
are brilliant. Nearly all the first team
are under-classmen, some of them being
first-year men, and the nucleus that the
present playeis will form will put a pow
erful team Into the field another 'season.
Concerning the calling o.ff of the Al
bany game by the Albany manager, Cap
tain Gault said today:
"Wi wanted to play that game. Every
player on our eleven was anxious for It.
But It was impossible for us to make con
ditions that the Albany manager would
stand by. He accepted our challenge, em
bodying five distinct propositions, one pf
which was for an admission game with
rqual division, the other for a free game,
each team to pay Its own expenses. He
had the choice- of both, and of three other
distinct conditions, and he chose the free
game, here is what an Albany paper
said about his acceptance. The paper
In speaking of the negotiations for the
" 'Manager Johnson, of Corvallls, de
sired to play on the college campus at
Albany, each team to tako one-half of the
gate receipts, but as the field Is unfenced.
It was not thought adylsauie to collect
gate money, and Albany nas accepted the
proposition made by Corvallls to play on.
the college campus without charge for ad
mission, both teams to pay their own
xpenses. The proposition probably tooK
away the Oregon Agricultural College
manager's breath, and It is not known
definitely whether It will be accepted or
not It Is said bv knowlne ones that Cor
vallls did not expect that Albany' could
afford to play without gate receipts, but
the liberal manner In which the team has
been supported by our citizens made It
possible for the home boys to play the
game without charge to spectators.' "
Continuing, Captain Gault said: "As the
paper says, Albany made her own con
dltlons. We began preparations and sud
denly learned that the Albany manager
demanded changes. If we had been as
sured that he would, have stood by an
other new contract we might have con
sented to a change; but after he fluked
on one contract, wv had no heart to pro
ceed further, ond because we did not ac
cede . within three hours after receipt of
his demand for a change of plan, he called
the game off, our first notice of which
was a dispatch in The Sunday Ore'gonlan
As to hiring an excursion train, we did
nothing of the kind. Arrangements o
that sort, whatever they may have been
were 'arranged by Corvallls men, and with
out our knowledge or advice."

WALLA WALLA. Wash., Dec 1. The
JaBt of the 100 discharged troopers of the
Nlqth Cavalry, wno are returning to ineir
homes in the South and East went today.
It has Just developed to what extraor
dinary lengths the Washington & Co
lumbia River Railroad and the O. R. & N.
Co. went to secure the transportation of
these trodpa Never In the history of the
Northwest have so many passenger
agents entered actively In a campaign for
the transportation of a, hundred persona.
Besides business rivalry, the exercise of

mad rush of passenger men to aua

Even before the officers at Fort Walla
Walla had an inkling of the order to re
duce the troops of the Ninth Cavalry sta-
derhead, general freight and passenger
agent of the Washington & Columbia
River Railroad, with headquarters In this
city, got a tip and set to work to get tne
lion's share of the business for his road,
which Is a property of the Northern Par
clflc and connections. At once Mr. Cal
derhead sent for Frank O'Neill, traveling
passenger agent at Portland. Then the
O. R. & N. realized the fact that some
thing was doing, and sent their Jack
O'Neill Mr. Calderhead strengthened his
hand by drawing $3000 In gold from a local
bank and exposing It before the eyes of
the colored troops at the garrlsou. As a
result of this stroke the Washington &
Columbia River Railroad cashed tho finals
of about 20 soldlejs, sold them tickets to
the East and South, and sent them away
In a special car.
Then the O. R. & N. people countered
most effectively. They overwhelmed the

other consequences of either excited or

cured me, and cured me quickly. Since

Dear Sir: I have been trying
through the druggists here to
obtain another bottle of your
specific, as I have been a suf
ferer from them off and on for
some years. I saw th6 ads. in
the P.-L of Seattle, Wash.,
some time in May last. At that
time I was 100 miles north of
Seattle, so I' went down to Se
attle and found It. I have used
it up and have been trying to
get more. It has helped me very
much, more so than anything I
have ever used, and I have
oeen very anxious to use another
bottle. Yours respectfully.
