ENTERED B FRAUD
STATE VETERINARIAN TESTS
FROM HEW YORK AND ILLINOIS
Fraudulent Certificates of Health Ac
company Shipments and Make
Trouble for Buyers.
Lincoln. Investigations have been
going on for som time by Dr. A.
Bostrom, state veterinarian, regard
ing certain shipments of cattle Into
tills state from other states which
indicated that Nebraska was being
made the dumping ground for cattle
affected with tuberculosis. After a
thorough investigation of the enses
Dr. Bostrom issued the following
"Fraudulent health certificates cov
ering shipments of cattle from Illi
nois and New York havo recently
been giving the Nebraska state veter
inarian much trouble and tho Innocent
buyers of such cattle have suffered
much inconvenience, worry and finan
"About January 1 sixty-five head of
dairy cows, Holsteln and a few Guern
Beys, were shipped by R. D. Quail of
Earlvllle, N. Y., to Quail & Son of
Miller, Neb. About ono month later
these cattle were sold at a public
sale at Grand Island, Neb. These cat
tle were uccompanied by a certifi
cate issued by Dr. J. E. York of Earl
vllle, N. Y stating that they had
passed the tuberculosis test. No copy
of the certificate had been forwarded
to the Nebraska state veterinarian,
as required by the Nebraska state
sanitary regulations. We had abso
lutely no knowledge that these cattlo
wero shipped into this state, nor that
they were to be sold at a public sale.
"At this sale eighteen head wore
bought by Joe Horsley of Sheridan,
Wyo., and the question of a health
certificate came up to comply with
the Wyoming Interstate regulations.
This led to somo suspicion thnt these
cattle had come into this state with
out a proper health certificate, and
therefore they were tested and tho
result was that five out of tho eight
een reacted to tho tuberculin test.
These five animals were ordered to bo
shipped to South Omaha, to bo dis
posed of under tho supervision of tho
government Inspectors. Instead of
shipping them to South Omaha they
were shipped to St. Joseph, Mo., there
by violating the federal law prohibit
ing the interstate shipment of tuber
cular reactors. The government in
spectors at St. Joseph found all five
to be affected with generalized tuber
culosis and reported tho same to this
Inspector Have Conference.
Lincoln. Oil Inspectors and food
inspectors, now under ono general
department head, held a conference
nnd school with Food Commissioner
Herman. Tho men had their duties
outlined anew under the provisions
of the law consolidating the two de
partments, It is probable that the in
spectors will not bo confined strictly
to congressional districts as they
have In the past, but that trips will
be made in accordance with a plan
promulgated by Commissioner liar
man looking to the accomplishment
of more work at less expense and In
less time than formerly.
Flaw In Compensation Act.
Lincoln, Representative Richard
son of Lancaster has found some de
fect in tho workmen's compensation
law passed by the recent legislature,
and while he will not divulge Just
what tho troublo is, he showed enough
agitation over the matter in his anxie
ty to get hold of the attorney general
to leave the impression that tho de
fect must be serious. As soon as
Chief Clerk Richmond of tho houso
was Informed of the trouble, he at
onco got in communication with Guy
Cramer of Omaha, one of the chief
workers for a compensation act dur
ing the session, and with Omaha at
torneys, whom It Is claimed havo alBo
discovered defects in the bill which
may render tho law unconstitutional.
Half Million In Treasury.
Lincoln. State Treasurer George
has prepared his monthly statement
of the fluanclnl condition of the stato
treasury at the close of business
April 30, which shows a balance1 of
$542,113.33. The bnlance at the close
of business Inst month was $487,
327.1f). The receipts sinco that time
hnve been $234,145.24, and the expen

amounts to $0,022.73, whllo there Is

Besieged by Bakers.
As a result of the announcement of
Food Commissioner Harman that all
bread must be wrapped before leav
ing the place of manufacture, and
that all bread wagons must be kept
in sanitary places over night, the
pure food commissioner was kept
busy answering 'phone calls of pro
test and personal calls from bakers
In the city of Lincoln, protesting
against the order. Commissioner Har
man was, however, firm In his dec
laration to compel the manufactur.
ers of bread to live up to the sani
tary laws of the state, and will en
force tho provision of the pure food
not covering sanitary conditions. The
law also states that all drivers of
bakery wagons shall wear .clean
clothes. This will also be enforced.
