CIIICAIIO , Sept , 121. ( Special Teluaram to
the Hm : . ] Tim proposed slam-liter of nil ani
mals In ph'iiiH-pnruinoiiln affected dlstltleilcs
mid fauns is to be strictly cnnlcil out In spite
ot protests from Inlcicstcd parties , wim at
tempt to deny contagion. Chairman Pear-
Ron , ot tlnj live stock commission , salil to
il ny :
"We Intend to have every one of UHMH
hlaiightcicd , nnd wo will make separate hi-
Hpectlon of tlio I n n 153 of each of the annuals.
Those whos'i lungs show signs of pleiuo will
lie burned up , hub others will be sold for licof
for ivlmtcvcr Is bid for Ilium. 1 susp-ct tlmt
Wisconsin , Iowa and Michigan will imaian-
line our cattle ns soon as thi'lr vetetlnurlans ,
who were down here to satisfy themselves of
tlio nutmeof this disease and its pievalonce ,
iiialte their reports. This will piobably occur
within n week. "
Tlio visit or thu commission to tlio stock
yaidsthis morning excited a good dual of
couniiunt , as itis ; thought they had cumo to
examine for contagious plenro among the
cattle kept thuie. The commission Is decld-
udly unpopular among cattle tiiun , soinu of
whom piolcss to believe that the Investigation
Is In i utility a scheme to secure an nppioprin-
tlon to the boaid fiom the state. When It
wns Known that a < | iiaiantlne was expected
there \\as some wild talk about seeming an
Injunction against thu .state autlioiitics to
piuvent any such bur to free shiiunent , hut
nobody seemed smeas to what would be. the
lcstcouise to pursue. Jt was thu general
opinion that any icstrlrtlvo measures would
result In immense. Injuiy to tins trade in
.Mr. Irus t'oy made a statement of the eat-
tlemen'H sldo of the matter to a lepoitcr. lie
h.vld : "We had hoped that the commission
would make no attempt to plncc beet from
distillery cattle on tlio market , but they do
lint heein to bo willing to urn lit our leanest.
The lysiilt may bo very disastrous , ns castein
dealers arc always willing to accept an op-
imiliinlty ot stopping hlpment ot dressed
beef fiom Chicago , nnd they will sptead n re-
pint tlie beef fiom cattle with pleuro Is belli. ;
told here , of to our disadvantage. The
iiiiaiautlne , of course , will hint us.
1 think wo have enough trouble on our hands
without that. "
The tioublo with the commission Is , tlmt
t io npmopiiailon b > the leglslntuio Is inade
quate to innKo good the losses. Theie would
nilse , In all piobabllltv , cl.iims which thu
Mate would have to make good. Suppose
this to be so , the commissioners bay that the
next legislatino would blame them tor not
ical 7.mir all they possibly could on tin :
hl.iughtuied animals. The commission is
thus placed In a somewhat itcllcnto position ,
and are uncertain how to proceed , being
placed , as it weie , between two lues.
The commission visited the Chicago distil-
lerv on Illai'kliawk btiect nnd killed a cow
whoso limes wens lotind to bo cle.irly and
fcliongly marked with tlio l.ital disease. This
finds an extra bnidcn to the r.hoady gieat
task of tin ) llvo stock commission. Tin ;
CU ) hu.ul ot cattle at tlio Chicago dis
tillery weie supposed to bo nil right ,
although they were quarantined on Tuesday.
ns a matter of precaution. The owners of
tliec.itric ( rntlii'ied In larwo numbers , nml
wcto Inclined to oppose the vuleilimriiins In
their work. The cattle at this distillery are
all line , Inrgo animals , valued at liom 50 to
SM ) each.
Dr. DeWolf says every bonid , post and
bhlngle , down to tlio minutest sliver fiom the
cow-sheds ot the Phicnlx distillery , must tic
burned to the t'louiul. That , ho says , is the
only Mittslncloiy ttimlgation lor that place ,
The other distillmles aienot no bad. and can
bo disinfected easily.
An evening paper , which has been Invest- !
gating , says that tlio "Kngllsh language If
short of woids which can tie put in pi I in
describing the liightful tilth ot tlio Pliomi.x

At the confcienro betwocn the mcmbeis ol
thu llvo stock commission and the olllcials ol
tlm Stock Yards company tills moiniiiir , Mr.
1'earson said tothostock vard representative'
that the commissioners had decided to kll
nil the cattle now In the Pluenix and
Shtilloldt dlstillcilos , nliout two thousand
head ; that on post-mortem examination nl
deceased cattle would be cremated , and nl
healthy cattle sold to tlio highest bidder
The stock yaids company lepllei
that millions of dollnis would IK
lost to the packing interest ot Chicago it tin
report went out to the world tlmt beef from
the Intccted distilleries , whether healthy 01
not , was being shipped trom Chicago. Mr ,
J'caison then informed thn gentleman thai
the state only had jl'.i.COl with which to compensate
pensato the owners of healthy cattle , and II
nonnot the he.ilthy beef was iitil/ed ! the
stale would bo at nil cxpenso of al
least double that amount. He sug
gcstcd to the stock yaids men thai

Often has this melancholy tact been

choice of my heart and it was there tlmt
my dear children were born. Many n

ndniiro the truly benevolent and pious

whom are descendants from Spanish

of religions persecution , emigrated to

tlmt feeling causes.

The husband's heart would not bu las-

would not curse the day when Ins oil'-
