Disgusting Conditions In Sausage and J Factories.
London, July 1 1 .The Britishers,
who have hi en so virtuous recently
over the Chlrngo meat packing revela
tions, were tixlay confronted with the
annual repot t of the inspector of fac
tories and workshops, which shows
that the conditions here are quite as
revolting as anything alleged of the
Western packing rente's.
Dir'y factories and disgusting im th
ods seem to he the rule, instead of the
exception. Jam factories, baketies and
saussge makers are all censured as be
Ing npially filthy, and the description
of one fits most of the others. Mere Is
the report of a typical Jam factory:
"The boiling factory lay between the
yard and the stable, and the horses
reached the latter through the boiling
room. The sanitary accommodation
was hardly separated from the rooms
where the fresh frutt and uncovered
jam were kept, and the floors were dir
ty and andrained."
Another factory Inspector found jam
pots leing washed in "liquid like dark
soup, which smellwl abominably.
The manager informed the inspector
that the water was changed "about
once a week." When Ashed out of
these evil-smelling tsnks the pots were
allowed to stand until dry, when they
were considered ready to refill.
Insptctors of bakeries found that it
was a frequent custom to bathe the
children In them alter the close of work
on Saturdays, and the family's weekly
collection of dirty clothing was sorted
in the bakeries for dispatch to the
The sausage factories, rays the re
port, are mostly owned by Germans,
are small, dilapidated and poorly lit,
and are infested with rats."
Roosevelt Offers It for Government
Inspected Canned Meat.
Sheffield. Kngland, July 11. The
irocers' federation, whose annual con
ference is proceeding here, has received
communication from Ambassador
Whitelaw Held, enclosing a message
from President Roosevelt, as follows:
"Yon are at liberty to inform the
irocers' federation that under the new
law we can and will guarantee the fit
ness In all respects ol tinned meats
bearing the government stamp. If any
trouble arises therewith, protest ran at
once im niS'le not merely to the sellers
of the goods, but to the United States
government itself."
The secretary of the federation "tated
that Mr. Roosevelt's message was in
reply to one sent by him on 'ehal( of
the federation, saying trade was almost
paralyzed and that dealers must be as
sured of the wholesome character of
tinned goods, or otherwise they would
have to stop stocking up with Ameri
can brands. The speaker hoped the
publication of the president's message
would lead to a revival of the trade
He said the loss to the members of the
federation in the canned meat trade
bad been very heavy.
Drastic resolutions were referred to
committees, one of which pledged the
grocers not to stock with American can
ned meats until the packers have initi
ated an inspection system guaranteeing
the wholesomeness of their output.
Slayer of Holy Roller Leader Is Ac
quitted by Jury.
Seattle, Wash., July 11. George II
Mitchell, who shot Fran Kdmnnd
Creflield, leader of the Holy Rollers,
on First avenue, May 7, was acquit
ted late yesterday afternoon. After
nearly an hour and a half in the jury
room the 12 men who have listened to
the testimony in Mitchell's trial tiled
buck and announced their verdict:
'Not guilty."
Despite the advance warning of the
court that no demonstration would be
permitted, irrespective of the verdict,
roar of applause greeted the an
nouncement ami the court otneers were
powerless to still it. The courtroom
was crowded, but aside from thope who
sat in the front row, directly under the
eye of the presiding judge, the spectat
ors applauded almost unanimouley
when the clerk had read the words that
freed Creltield's slayer.
Turmoil Grows In Strength.
Odessa, Russia, July 11. Agrarian
outrages and politico-industrial strikes
occur daily, and are alarmjngly ppread
ing in the Southern provinces. The re
volting peasantry are now evidently or
ganized and led by profesisonal propa
gandists. In an interview today a mar
shal of the nobility of Kherson ex
pressed the firm conviction that the
situation is inevitably and rapidly
drifting to a colossal and calamitous
uprising of the peasants against the
landowners and that the movement
will be supported by the soldiers.

No American Canned Meats Al
'lowed On Tlielr Warships.
Admiralty Yields and Will Feed Them
On Australian and Argentine
Canned Goods.
London, July 10. As the result of
the refusal of one of the ships of the
ISrltish attacking fleet to take on Amer
ican tinned meats during the recent
naval maneuvers, the Admiralty directs
that ships' companies be supplied with
Australian or Argentine brands in lieu
of American. The remainder of Amer
ican tinned meats now on hand is being
returned to the victualing yards and
will be no longer a compulsory ration
(or the navy.
Winston Charchill Spencer, under
secretary of the colonies, in an official
communication to William Redmond,
Nationalist member of parliament, says
he is informed that special care la ex
ercised by the New South Wales gov
ernment that only absolutely healthy
beeves are slaughteiel for food and
that every precaution is taken at the
(reexing and canning works to insure a
cleanly method. Where any breach of
the regulations regarding cleanliness is
proved, licenses are immediately with
drawn. Persons slaughtering a diseas
ed beef are liable to imprisonment for
two years and the seller of diseased
meat is liable to imprisonment for a
longer term. Government inspectors
report weekly. Twelve hours notice
must Im; given of intention to slaughter,
and where no such notice is given a
penalty of $25 a head may be imposed.
Congress Will Be Asked to fcnlarge
President's Powers.
Washington, July 10. Tariff reci
procity as the beginning cf tariff revi
sion may be made tbe chief issue of the
short session of the 59th congress. It
is more than likely that after the elec
tion in November steps will be taken in
tbe direction of the passage of a general
reciprocity law. Whatever reciprocity
there is must be by a new law, because
the reciprocity feature of the Dingley
act expired two years after its passage,
and none of the treaties negotiated un
der its provisions succeeded in securing
raticfiation by the senate.
The reciprocity of the future must be
statutory, that is to say, the president
must be authorized in some way, either
by the separation of a maximum and
.minimum tariff or by a horizontal re
dnction, to promote trade relations
with tob re countries This would not
mean revision of the tariff if reciprocity
could be accomplished on a percentage
basis, that is to say, by the application
of a more general principle of the prea
ent law without disturbing tbe rates
themselves, thus provoking a general
tariff discussion.
Speaks at Banquet at San Juan With
Diplomatic Reserve.
San Juan, Porto Rico, July 10. Eli
hu Root, the American secretary of
Mate, who arrived here on tbe cruiser
Charleston on his voyage to Rio Ja
neiro as the representative of the
American government at the Pan-
American congress, was entertained at
luncheon tonight by George C. Ward,
at the Union club.
Auditor Hyde, of Porto Rico, pro
posed a toast to President Roosevelt.
In responding Mr. Boot said he fully
appreciated the difficulties attending
the island s adjustment to the new con
ditions resulting from its separation
from Spain and the severance of rela
tions between church and state. The
United States, Mr. Root said, was
greatly interested in the welfare of the
island aud in holding its friendship,
and strongly desired for Porto Rico the
utmost prosperity and happiness.
Mr. Root avoided all reference to in
sular problems, such aa the question of
citizenship, the coffee growing industry
and the presence ol troops.
Sealers Put In Chains.
Victoria, B. C, July 10. Advices
from Japan state that three Americans,
one Britisher and one Japanese sealer.
who were imprisoned for 16 months at
Vladivostok, have returned to Japan
after being released. One of the Amer
icans was loaded with chains, while in
confinement. The Americana and the
Britisher, who are distressed, are being
maintained at the Seaman's institute
at Yokahoma. They were members of
the crew of the Japanese sealing
schooner Kyoichi Maru, which waa
sunk by Russian cruisers in 1003.

London, July 10. According to
correspondent of the Times at
Petersburg, it is the concensus of opin
ion there that the Constatutional Dem
ocrats will be invited to form a minis
try. One of their leaders said there
had been indirect overtuns with that
end in view, and that they were await
ing the next move from Peterhof. An

Moitromtseff cabinet.

Caracas, Venezuela July 10. Vice

Speaker of House Blocked Diversion
of Reclamation Fund.
Washington, July 10. Thanks to
Speaker Cannon, the Harishrough bill
diverting 11,000,000 from the reclama
tion fund to drain private swamp lands
in North Dakota, was riot allowed to
come before the house at the recent ses
sion. Had the bill been given consid
eration it would almost certainly have
become a law, for it had already passed
the senate, was Indorsed by a majority
of the house committee on public lands,
and only a handful of Western mem
bers were in a mood to oppose the bill
in debate.
' Speaker Cannon was the man who
defeated this onslaught on the none too
large reclamation fund, and his posi
tion was altogether unexpected, too.
When congress was framing the recla
mation law, and in the yeara previous,
Cannon was one of the strongest oppon
ents of the proposed legislation. He
believed it would deplete the treasury
and interfere with other government
work; furthermore, he contended that
Irrigation of arid lands could he carried
on by private enterprise under the Car
ey act, and therefore saw no necessity
for utilizing public land receipts in this
great work.
Since that law was written on the
satute books and has been put into op
eration, Speaker Cannon has traveled
through the West, has observed the
vat benefits that are resulting from it,
and today he is as staunch a friend of
the law as any man from the arid West.
He has proved himself a better friend
of the law than many men who helped
to frame it.
In the closing days of the session an
effort was made to rush through the
senate a bill to take a part of the recla
mation fund for draining the Dismal
swamp, but the bill was refused con
sideration, a number of Western senat
ors having been aroused to a realization
of the danger that lurks behind bills of
this character, and notice was served
by Senator Fulton that no more distri
butions would be made from the recla
mation fund for the benefit of states
that do not contribute to that fond.
Tbe senators behind the bills provid
ing for the drainage of the Dismal
swamp, the Florida Everglades and the
big swamps along the Mississippi river,
on the other hand, are determined to
force through thsir respective bills.
and it is to be expected that they will
unite at the next session.
The West 't not strong enough in
numbers to outvote the Soutn, which is
sure to stand together on these drain
age propositions, and tbe only hope, so
far as the senate is concerned, is in
arousing adverse sentiment among men
from the Northern and EaBtern states.
On a fair presentation of the case,
the men from the West ought to be
able to win out, but they can only win
by standing together, and those who in
the recent session voted tor the Hans
brough bill will have to renounce their
former vote and declare themselves
against all legislation that will deplete
the national reclamation fund.
Dry Creeks Become Torrents and
Much Damage Is Done.
Denver, Jaly 10. Cloudbursts and
lightning did considerable damage in

Root at San Juan.
San Juan, P. R-, July 10. The
