wife , on account of whoso health ho cnmo to
Germany. Mr. Armour said that ho had Just
received n dispatch from his homo stating
that ground had been broken at Toloston ,
Ind. , for the now stock yards in which ho ,
Mr. Morris and Mr. Swift are interested.
"Wo have 4,000 acres of land there , " ho
said , "where we propose to establish packing
houses nnd stockyards. Wo have line rail
way accommodations , pure water nnd excel
lent sewerage. Wo shall not bo so cramped
for room as at the old stockyards , which are
altogether out of plnca In such close
proximity to the host part of Chicago. Wo
propose to Issue $10,000,000 of stock , which
wo will divide among the packers and dealers
who tollow us to our now quarters. The pro
ceeds of thu sale of this stock will enable us
to put up nil the necessary buildings and im
provements upon our land. "
"Will the other packers follow vour ox-
ainplo and desert the old stockyards ! " asked
the correspondent.
"They cannot help themselves , " answered
Mr. Armour , "We three practically control
the business , the others must follow. Besides -
sides it Is to their own advantage. In the
old stockyards the charges are so high that
It scarcely pays to do business there. Wo
shall bo able to irlvo accommodations at much ,
more moderate fates. You see , the old stockyards -
yards , which cost orlglnully about 1100,000 , ,
were sold some eight months ago to an En-
gllsh syndicate for fjr > ,000,000. The Invest
ors want to got tholr Interest on this Immense
sum , consequently high charges are neces
sary. "
"But what will become of the SW.OOO.OOO
Invested when you nnd all the other grunt
houses move away ? Will It not be practically
lost ! "
"I am not worrying about the English In
vestors. I feel sorry for them , but I must
look out for my own interests nud the inter
ests of the community first. "
"Will you not lose heavily ou your packing
houses and other Improvements which ! you
have erected in the old stock yards ! " "
"They are worth very little , " replied Mr.
Armour. "They have served tholr uses. Bo-
ildt , . oil other motives there are sanitary
ret.-C' K why we should make fhlscli4ugo. In
c-v. now quarters wo shall have the
ir. : i ! ps.foct arrangements forthp proper
* .H < .iiMiUon and packlui ? of pork. You know
the objections which are made bothy In Ger-
manv and Franco against American pork ; , I
think Germany has u perfect right to demand
that food products Imported Into bcrterri
tory should bo perfectly healthy. I and all
the other great packers nro willing to meet
all reasonable demands In ( hls.-rcgard. Our
own Interests , as well us comirion comnitirclnl
honesty , cause us to BOO that iioalscajcd moat
.should bo exported from our places , The
first ploco of trleliltiosls exported from Amer
ica Into Germany would euuso a renewal of
the ordinance forbidding the Importation of
American pork , "
"But these ordinances nro still In force , "
said the Associated press correspondent.
"Do you think that they will soon bo re
pealed 1"
"I have no doubt , " said Mr , Armour , "that
as soon ns the German .government Is con
vinced of the proper oxamli.atlou in Amorlca
it will allow the Importation of our pork. Ol
that examination wo cannot now give full
preference. Wo nro willingto have our
goods examined upon tholr entering Ger
many , nnd I can state for myself nnd nil the
other packers that wo take the utmost cnro
to send nothing except sound meat. Wo are
constantly looking for now markets for our
products and wo should bo very ciiruful not
to ruin newly opened nvenues of trade by
any carelessness In handling and shlpplnc
diseased meat. Wo have two many close so
cial and business relations With Germany to
keep up a commercial war. When once the
government Is satisfied Of our perfect good
faith the whole question will bo settled. "

The secretary of the interior has nnirmed
the decision of the commissioner of the gen
eral land olllco In dismissing the contort
against the Umber culture entry of George I.
Williamson in the Bloomlngton district.
Williamson bad made three attempts to force
trees to grow and fulled each time. His
entry was contested by William M. Strick
land , and tbo local ofllccrs sustained the con
test. Williamson appealed and the commis
sioner reversed the local men. The secre
tary sustains the commissioner ou tbo ground
that the attempt to cultivate trees was made
In good faith. In the case of the United
States vs A. Van Wormcr , Sarah

muted homestead entry hi the Valentino
tine district , hold for cancellation by
the commission , the secretary modifies the
decision ntul orders the entry passed lo patent
because no bad faith Is shown nnd no contest
against tbo entry has been made. The sec
retary has also approved the notion of the

thu collector seems to think that
there are good reasons why ho should be

mercial company docs not kill moro than the

Sketch of tlio Kdncatloiml Career of
Prof. Caiillold.
TOPKKI , Kan. , Juno 11. [ Special Telegram
to TUB Biu.j-Prof. : James II. Cunllcld , born
In Brooklyn , was the sou of Dr. Canllold , n
distinguished Episcopal clergyman , for many
years pastor of one of the leading Brooklyn
churches. Ho was educr.lod nt the Brooklyn
polytechnic Institute and Williams college.
After graduation ho was engaged for several
years In railroad construction In Iowa and
Minnesota. Ho subsequently was admitted
to the bar nnd practiced law In Michigan.
His tastes , however , worn scholastic nud in
1877 ho became professor of political economy
and history hi the Kansas university , then n
young and struggling Institution. For
several yeara ho carried the English
department in addition to his own.
Ho soon became known throughout
the west as ono of the leading educators.
Largely to his untiring labors has been duo
the extraordinary growth and prosperity of
the Kansas university. Slnco 1S7" his chair
has boon several times divided until nt the
present tlmo ho is devoting himself ex
clusively to American history and civics. In
18b. > ho took hold of the National Teachers'
association , an organization numbering at
that tlmo some hundreds of teachers. Ho
was several yours secretary and afterwards
piosidont of the association. Under his ad
ministration the membership Increased to
moro than live thousand. Ho was desired
almost unanimously for chancellor of the
Kansas state university a year ngo ,
but was not .selected for"a rea
son of n temporary , but conclusive
nature. Ho was strongly urged for the
senate to succeed Ingalls by the host mem
bers of all parties , lint flatly declined to bo n
candidate. Ho Is n republican without rabid
partisan feeling , and an Episcopalian nnd
active In church work , nnd is au extraordi
nary worker and enjoys greater populailty
than any other man in Kansas. Prof. Can-
field Is a line instructor , has the bioadcst pos
sible scholastic methods and opinions , and is
altogether a man of marvelous goodness , ver
satility and strength. Ho will not bo nllowcd
to leave the Kansas university if the regents
can contrive to keep him.
KANSAS Cm , Mo. , Juno 11. A special from
Topekn says : Prof. J. II. Cnutleld of the

Uc'liiiond and O'Connor , Parnell's
ICnvoys , Aimwor It.
CmriGo , Junn 11. The address telegraphed
from Now York , in which Dr. Thomas Addis
Emmet , president of the National Federation
of America , pronoun-sod Mr. Painell un
worthy of further trust , was answered today
by Redmond and John O'Connor ' , the Irish
members of parliament , representing Parnell
in the United States , The answer says that
Emmet , president of the federation and
Kelly , treasurer , represent only themselves.
The federation Is composed of n few gentle
men of social distinction , who. "resolved"
themselves Into nn organization , but who
'ovor sought the i > anctlon of a public meot-
iiifr , well knowing tUat"tho mass of ' Irish-
Americans is against them.
The address says : The statements In Mr.
Emmet's circular are founded on falsehood.
Ho criticises the circular severely and lays
blame for the rupture in the Irish party on
Mr. Gladstone's interference. It said 'Mr.
Parnell does not stand In the way of unity
and that ho has twice offered to resign If the
party would get from the liberals an assur
ance that In their measure of homo rule they
will Introduce such provisions as will bo
satisfactory to the majority of the
Irish representatives. Twice his oppo
nents accepted this offer and sought the re
quired guarantees and twice they failed to
secure them. If these assurances were
thought necessary then they nro necessary
still , and the liberal party has only at any
time to satisfy Mr. Pnrnell's demand , which
has boon twice endorsed by the Irish party ,
to case the situation and end the quarrel.
Continuing , the address says : "We con
fidently trust that the Irish in America will
rcfuso tholr aid to an organization whoso
policy of surrender to the English liberals
strikes at the root of the principles of self-
rcllanco that should guide the nation. "
Referring to the matter of funds ,
the report says : "It is deserving
of uotlco that Mr. Kelly and friends
deliberately refrained for six months
from sending money collected for the evicted
tonunts to the treasurers appointed by
William O'Brien and John Dillon to receive
the sanio and now consign to a faction. "
In conclusion the reply says : "Tho fact
that the opposition is urged most strongly bv
Englishmen will bo strong proof that Paruoil
is the best friend of the Irish people. "

The servant was doing some work hi the

Inu paper.
When her clothing caught flro the baby
ran towards the kitchen screaming ns loud as
she could.
Dan C. Horeloy , n neighbor , hoard the
screams nnd ran to the baby's assistance.
The colored girl hnd como up from the collar
and was about to throw n pall of water ever
the child. Mr. Horely prevented this and
wrapped n shoot about the httto form ,
which by this tlmo was nil nblnzo.
Other neighbors came In nud doctors
