INSPECTION WILL BE EXTENDED iin.. Nob., an.
FROM PASTURE TO PACKAGE.
Secretary Wilson Takes First Step to
Restore Faith In Packers Tells
How Thorough, With Increased Pow
er, Inspection Will Now Be.
Wnslilncton. July 3. Secretary Wll-
non of the department of ngrlcultu.-o
lias decided to postpone his annual va
cation until he tins completed the or
ganization necessary to pttt Into opoi
ntlon the new meat Inspection law.
Jiy direction of the president, Sccre
tary Wilson issued the following state
ment: "American live stock are the health
iest In the world. The ureal rangon
of the west produce herds of cattle In
which the percentage of disease is re
markably small and the federal gov
ernment is stcndily reducing by ap
proved scientific methods this small
percentage. The inspection of animals
beforo and at the time of slaughter
has always been thorough. It Is true
that the department of agriculture has
heretofore lacked the power and the
money to provide for an efficient su
pervision and sanitation of the meth
ods of preparation of canned meat
food products. The legislation which
has just become effective provides the
department with adequate power to
carry It Into effect. Supervision In
epection will be extended from the
pasture to the pnekage. Tho federal
Btamp upon tho can will bo a guaran
tee not only of the healthrulness of
the animal, but also that the product
was prepared In sanitary surroundings
and with the addition of no deleterious
chemlcnl or preservative. Any meat
food product bearing the government
stamp will be fit for food. With this
law in operation it may be accepted as
a fact thnt for healthfulncss and pur
ity the prepared canned product will
compare favorably with the fresh
meat of the United States, which Is
and always has been the finest In tho
world. Tho new law Is comprehen
sive, tho means for Its enforcement
aro ample and Its execution will be
thorough. People at home and abroad
may use our meats in confidence."

! PRAISES WORK OF CONGRESS.
President Says Session Is Most Nota
ble for Years.
Washington, July 2. President
Roosevelt, on the adjournment of con
gress, dictated tho following state-
ment concerning the work accom
plished during tho session:
I "In th se&sion that has just closed
the congress has done more substan-
! tlal work lor good than any congress
1 at any session slnco I become famlllui
i will, nubile affairs. The legislation
has been along the lines of real con
hi motive statesmanship of the most
practlcul and efficient type nnd bill
after bill has been enacted which was
of an importance so great that it is
fnlr to say that tho enactment of any
ono of them would have made the ses
sion memorable, such, for Instance, as
tho railroad rate bill, the meat Inspec
tion measure, the pure food bill, the
bill for free alcohol In the arts, the
consular reform bill, Panama canal
legislation, tho. Joint statehood bill
and tho naturalization bill. I certainly
have no disposition to blink at what
there Is of evil in our social, Indus
trial and nolltical life of today, but it
seems to mo that tho men who wlsn
well to their country have the right
to feel a profound satisfaction In tho
entire course of this congress. I
would not be afraid to compare Its
record with that of any previous con
gress In our history, not alone for tho
wisdom, but for the disinterested high
mlndcylness which has controlled Itc
action. It Is noteworthy that not a
single measure which the closest scru
tiny could warrant us In calling of
doubtful propriety has been enacted,
and on the other hand no Influence of
any kind has availed to prevent tho
enactment of laws most vitally neces
sary to the nation at this time."

fers No Resistance to Mob.
Chlcknsha, I. T., July 2. A negro,
who committed a criminal assault up
on tho sixteen-year-old daughter of
Ira Robertson, near Womack, was cap
tured and after being taken back to
the scene of his crime, was hanged
and burned near the spot where ho

to the mob. To one person the negro
gave his name as Cliff Mays of Mar
shall Tex., and he told another that It
was Will Newbrlght of San Antonio.
By tho time the negro was overtaken,
near Bradley, last night fully 400 men
had joined in the chase, and soon '
after the capture the i march to ,
Womack began. It was nearly 3 a. m.

and the negro replied: "Yes, lady, I'm .
the one. Gentlemen, I ndmlt the
The mob then proceeded with their
victim past the spot where he had
committed his crime and to a tree In
the road on the bank of Walnut creek,
where a rope was thrown over a limb
about eighteen feet high and the other
end knotted about the man's neck. He
was given an opportunity to speak
and again he confessed his guilt, and
after a fervent prayer to God for for
giveness he was drawn into the air
to die of strangulation. Before Hfo
wns extinct the body was lowered to
the ground, logs and brush were
heaped upon It and the mass Ignited.
For a moment the body writhed, a few
Kroans were henrd and the flames
completed their work. Two hours
later tho charred body was buried un
der the same tree under directions of
a deputy marshal from Purcell, who
had been thwarted In his effort to take
tho negro from the mob. Miss Rob
ertson's conditlci Is not serious.

Report of Pennsylvania Railroad In
Philadelphia, July 3. A preliminary
report of tho special committco of
the board of directors of the Pennsyl
vania Railroad company recently ap
pointed to Investigate alleged dis
crimination in tho distribution of coal

tho interstate commerce commission,
was submitted to tho full board or

records In tho ofllco of Secretary Ben
nett of tho state board of equaliza
tion there Is no piano In McPherson
