In ( lie Quarantine I.lncn nnil
Measures ot the utmost Importance to
stock growers were considered nt the second
day's session ot the Interstate Sanitary
Board's convention .hold at Exchange hall ,
South Omaha , yesterday. The morning hour
was devoted to the conference of the com
mittees on quarantine lines and resolutions.
The following resolution , which Is considered
of great Importance , was adopted :
Whoi cos. The experiments recently con
ducted have demonstrated that southern cattle
tlo dipped In dynamo oil saturated with
sulphur will effectually destroy the southern
catllo tick , and that sttuh may be mixed
with northern native cattle without danger
of communicating Texas or southern fever
Resolved. That the quarantine regulations
may bo amended with safetv so as to ad
mit dipped southern cattle on the cortM .alo
of a designated Inspector of the etnto er
of the United States Department of ARrl-
culture to northern states during any portion
tion of the vcar.
The adoption of this resolution by thesan ,
itary board means a great deal to southern
cattlemen and especially to Texas. It was
stated that the number , of head of cattla In
Texas Is In the neighborhood ot 8,000,000 ,
which , taken nt the low valuation of $ 'n per
head , amounts to $120,000,000. The mmber-
shlp ot the Cattle Raisers' Association ot
Texas , whoso holdings are In the state , ren
der for assessment to the association 1G"4-
902 head of cattle , ot which number 784COS
are held to belong to members north of the
quarantine line and 780,599 head to members
south of the lino. While this association
numbers among Its members a majority of
the prosperous cattlemen of the state and
shows that the cattle held by them are
about equally divided north and south ot the
line , yet the membership roll holds nearly all
of the names of the North Texan and Pan
handle cattlemen , which 1-eaves the Inference
that about 6,000,250 head , or nearly 80 per
cent ot ti'o state's cattle , are In the hands
of stockmen and farmers below the quaran
tine line. Taking SO per cent of the a's'ssed
value , $96,000,000 In cattle values are affected
by the line In Texas alone. Should the reso
lution offered by the aseoclatlon be adopted
by the Department of Agriculture It will
boom the Fort Worth stock ynrda and allow
for shipments of cattle from all points below
the Hue after dipping. As the principal dip
ping baths for Texas are at Fort Worth , It
'stands to reason that the business of these
yards will be greatly Increased by the adop
tion of the regulations suggested.
Concernliicr dunraiilliie Linen.
Next eamo the report of the committee on
lines , which was as follows :
That the state of California be placed
below the federal auarantlno line for the
year 1899 and that cattle from % said stats
shall bo admitted to nolnts above said line
only when found free from Infection after
Inspection. That this asssclatlon recom
mends the honorable secretary of agriculture
to adopt the t'amo ' fe.dfrul quarantine lin < i
for the year JS99 as that * adopted for thp
year 1898. with the exception ot the state
of California , which Is" hereby recommended
to be placed below thb line. And cattle
therefrom dWlnod to points above the line
shall bo admitted onlv when found to be
frro from Infection aft r. .jnonectlon bv the
federal authorities. And plso with the ex
ception of Giles county.'Tenncssce. which Ifl
hereby recommendel 1'f6-'be pliced above
said line. ' " ' ' " " '
Dr. Etseman of LbulsVllle , Ky. , requested
Information respecting 'Giles county. Mr.
Edwards replied that the county Is frco
from ticks. Dr. Gcddls of the Bureau of
Animal Industry verified the statement of
Mr. Edwards. Ho said that all cattle In
fected with ticks In Giles county bad been
effectually quarantined -and he would like
to sco the county placed above the line , as' '
he could not see any danger. '
Chairman Johnson ot the legislative com
mittee submitted the following :
Whereas. It Is very essential that uniform
ity shall obtain among the various state *
In the handling of live stock traffic between
such tiatcs to prevent the spread of con
tagious disease an-I
Whereas. The legislatures of certain stater
have enacted Into law certain regulation *
regarding transportation of cattle from one
state to another : and
Whereas. Scientific Investlratlons are non
stantly making changes tn such desirable
and necessary regulations : therefore , yout
committee appointed at the last meeting cf
this association for the purpose of recom
mending uniform lecUlntlon with referenre
to quarantine regulations , bees leave to sub
mit the folltnvlnc recommendations-
That the State Live Stock Sanitary Board
of those states who = e ler-IMMures have enacted -
acted Into law regulations fixing quarantine
lines rind dates between which cattle from
certain districts of the United 'otos can
not bo Imported Into such states , shall use
all possible mrans to procure thp repeM
of tmch acts and the enactment of legislation
In lieu thereof. , provldlne that the poverno.-
of the state may , by proclamation , prohibit
the Importation of anv kind ot live s.'o.jV
Into ouch states from other etytoj or terri
tories , when conditions exist In such Kates
or territories which render live Flock er-
oortcd therefrom dancerous to the llvo stocV
of such states , except In accordance with
regulations to bo prescribed bv such live
stock sanitary boards and approved bv the
qovornor of the s'atc.
Your committee fur'hnr rccomrnendc that
all of the states In adopting regulations ov-
ernlnc the Importation f cattle from othfcr
states and territories shall conform to tY1
uniform renulatlons recommended bv this
n oclatlcn or adopted bv the Vnlt3d States
Department of Aerlculture.
This resolution was carried unanimously
and without debate.
Ilciinrt nn Dipping Rxticrlineiitn.
Dr. Victor A. Norcurd. chief of the Path
ological department of the Bureau of An
imal Industry , then addressed the meetlna
upon the subject of dipping cattle. Dr. N'or-
card spoke as follows :
A number of experiments were made last
vear at Fcrt Worth on dipping cattle In
oils. The results were that many ot thjfv
dins did not kill the ticks In one dlpon"
and sometimes not In two. Experiments
were continued this year with dips of light
rlls , many of which wore found Ineftlclw * .
Oil emulMons which did not have an In-
lurlous effect en the cattle did not dcstror
75 per cent of the ticks upon them. A lawr
of oarraflne upon water was tried , but , whlla
thin destroyed ticks upon the body , the legs
of U'o animal were not clennsed. H was
decided , after a number of tests , to araln
trv solid oil baths and flnallv a luhrlcatln ?
oil. known as dvnamo oil , from which the

collector was found a cable message from
Senor Montero notifying him that the mil

to affect the civil administration which Is
still under autonomous government and to
remit regularly all funds to Havana by a
trusted messenger. The mayor , or alcalde ,
