Afterward the Same Firms Will
Amalgamate the Yards In Omaha
Kansas City Chicago St Joseph
St Louis and Other Places
CHICAGO The Record Herald on
Friday says Two big consolidations
arc planned by beef interests The
packers will combine first and then
affect a merger of all the stock yards
In the country
With the exception of the Chicago
stock yards which are controlled in
Boston all the properties involved
are owned and controlled by the own
ers of the principal beef packing in
The different yards that will prob
ably be included in the deal aside
from the Chicago yards are those at
South Omaha Kansas City East St
Louis St Joseph Fort Worth and
Sioux City
The Armour interest is probably
the largest in the Kansas City yards
The Armours Swift and Morris con
trol the East St Louis yards the
Swifts own the St Joseph yards the
Armours and Swifts own the Fort
Worth yards the Armours Swifts and
Cudahys control the Omaha yards and
the Swifts control at Sioux City
While the control of the Chicago
yards is held in Boston the Chicago
packers have large holdings of the
stock also and their recommendations
would undoubtedly have great weight
with the eastern capitalists
The plan for consolidating the vari
ous stock yards has not progressed
as yet to a point where the amount
of stock required has been more than
discussed It would Undoubtedly run
well to 100000000 exclusive of
the amount required for the packing
companies combination which is said
to be 500000000
resident Proclaims November 27 as
the Time
WASHINGTON President Roose
velt on Wednesday issued his procla
mation designating Thursday Novem
ber 27 as a day of thanksgiving The
proclamation is as follows
v According to the yearly custom of
pur people it falls upon the president
at this season to appoint a day of fes
tival and thanksgiving to God
Over a century and a quarter has
passed since this country took its
place among the nations of the earth
and during that time we have had
on the whole more to be thankful for
than has fallen to the lot of any other
N Generation after generation has
grown to manhood and passed
away Each has had to bear its
peculiar burdens each to face its
special crisis and each has known
years of grim trial when the
country was menaced by malice
domestic or foreign levy when the
hand of the Lord was heavy upon it in
drouth or flood pestilence when in
bodily distress and anguish of soul
it paid the penalty of folly andt a
forward heart
Nevertheless decade by decade we
have struggled onward and upward
we now abundantly enjoy material well
being and under the favor of the Most
High we are striving earnestly to
achieve moral and spiritual uplifting
The year that has just closed has
been one of peace and of overflowing
plenty Rarely has any people enjoyed
greater prosperity than we are now en
joying For this we render heartfelt
and solemn thanks to the Giver of
Good and we seek to praise Him not
by words only but by deeds by the
way in which we do our duty to our
selves and to our fellow men
Now therefore I Theodore Roose
velt president of the United States do
hereby designate as a day of general
thanksgiving Thursday the 27th of
the coming November and do recom
mend that throughout the land the
people cease from their ordinary occu
pations and in their several homes and
places of worship render thanks unto
Almighty God for the manifold bless
ings of the last year
Tnx witness whereof I have hereunto
set my hand and caused the seal of
the United States to be affixed
Done at the city of Washington this
29th day of October in the year of our
Lord 1902 and of the independence
of the United States the 127th
By the President
Seal Secretary of State
Cholera Epidemic Decreasing

Arbitration Commission Begins Tour
to Examine Anthracite Region
SCRANTON Pa The seven com
missioners appointod by President
Roosevelt to adjust the differences
existing between the anthracite mine
workers and their employes on Thurs
day made a tour of the extreme upper
coal field and saw every step taken
in the production of coal from the
time it is blasted to the point where
it is sent to market
The arbitrators had an interesting
day and returned to their hotel at
night grimy from coal dust and tired
after eight busy hours They had
to endure many discomforts making
their way through wet places in the
mines almost crawling along some of
the gangways and passing through
clouds of coal dust in the breakers
Notwithstanding this their eagerness
for information was not diminished
and they expect to put in another
hard days work in the same manner
Every suit that has been brought
he said has been successful under
this section He said ho would curb
trusts not destroy them
The tariff will have to be revived
he said again and again and again
In conclusion Senator Hoar dis
cussed strikes saying that to him if
capital combined he could not see
why labor could not also combine
I believe the sympathy of all true
Americans he said is on the side
of labor and its attempt to better its
condition Capital and wealth will in
the end take care of themselves
Eight of Them Named by Hoar of
BOSTON Senator Hoar speaking
here Monday night said
The evils of the trust are
First Destruction of competition
Second The management of indus
tries by absent capital
Third Destruction of local public
Fourth Fraudulent capitalization
Fifth Secrecy
Sixth Management for the private
benefit of the officers
Seventh The power to corrupt elec
tions and in some cases to corrupt
Eighth Indifference to public sent
If the first fourth and fifth can bo
cured the cure of others in my opin
ion will follow
Now is it not the duty of wise
statesmanship to go slowly and care
fully in this matter so that we cure
or prevent the evil without sacrificing
what is good
Senator Hoar then reviewed the
Sherman anti trust laws and claimed
that he himself had inserted in the
bill the section declaring any combin
ation or trust which restricts trade
to be illegal
Governor Brodie Files His Showing

Deals with Question of Sovereignty
of Isthmus
WASHINGTON It was learned
Tuesday that a prompt answer had
been made to the latest Colombian
note respecting the Panama canal
treaty which was transmitted on Mon
day Its nature was not divulged but
the presumption is that it deals al
most entirely with Colombias repre
sentations regarding the sovereignty
of the isthmus The Colombians feel
their rights have been Feriously in
vaded by the acts of Commander
McLean and Admiral Casey in pre
venting the prompt movement of
troops across the railroad The state
department is anxious that a speedy
settlement be reached in order to fa
cilitate the completion of the Panama
canal treaty
