LONDOSf, lc. 6 The Board of Agrlcul
ture Bis lntimlted Its willingness . 1o re
more lhe embargo on cattle arriving from
New England henevpr the American do
partmept considers .that the outbreak If
suppressed. The board tonight Issued an
order permitting (he landing of rattle un
der certain restriction! from the steamer
Irishman, which ha arrived at Liverpool,
and tbe steamers Kansas and Vlctoriim, due
today, and Cambria, due at London.
Meantime the Importers here . asy the
quarantine has little effect on the American
meat supply since the bulk' comes from the
'Mt and it la merely a question of shipping
the cattle via New York Instead of Boston.
Regarding the general question of opening
British- ports to Canadian and Argentine
cattle, there Is not the'sllghtost likelihood
of the admittance at Argentine cattle until
the Board of Agriculture, la satisfied, that
tbe foot and mouth disease has not only
been sUmprd out In, Argentine, -but an ef
fectual quarantine aatabllshed against the
aurroundlug Infected territory , ,
On the othur. hand, 'the opening of BrV-.
Ish ports to Canafllnu'fcaUle is not only Itn
lirobable, but would not' favorably affect' the
English meat supply; because It Is cheaper
to sell Canadian range steers In the United
States and ship them d reined to England,
than to Import them alive to be fattened
for the market. . , . t;

HARRISBURO,-; Pa.. Dec! S. Governor
Ftone has taken prompt action to raise tno
quarantine which has been ordered by Gov

He wrote a letter protesting against this
action and advising that there had been no

that there is none and haa been none In
To quarantine Pennsylvania Is to aay In
effect that cattle of Pennsylvania are dis
eased or suspected of dixease. There is
no shadow of truth In such a supposition
and it will Injure the export of cattie
from all the states, as they reurly all
pasH through Pennsylvania enroute to port
lor export. .
.The effect of you order la to say that
there In danger of foot and mouth dlseaoe
infection in the states around and close to
the worts of New York, Philadelphia and
Baltimore. Your action mav cause an un
Jtistitleable scare that will injure tne whole
export trade In live animals In this coun
try. The foot and mouth disease In the United
Ktates la confined to a territory within a
radius of U miles from Boston. 1 hope
that you will withdraw your quarantine or

bo doing you will not only be doing a Jus

All lhe roads, It Is reported, hare sig

KAISER DECRYS SOCIALISM
Bays Party Leader leek Eelfhhly to En
ASKS LABOR MEMBERS IN REICHSTAG
Claims Simple Artisans Would Be
Welcomed by Other Classes and
Tend to Promote Good Feeling
BRESLAU. Prussia, Dec. 5. Emperor
William, addressing a deputation of wirk
Ingmen today, made a bitter antl-soriallst
speech, declaring It was a lie to say that
workmen had to rely on the socialist party
for a betterment ot their position.
The socialists, he added, had terrorised
and trod the worklngmen under foot, and
as men of honor they must have no more
to do with them.
The presence of the workmen, he main
tained, showed that they had not disap
pointed him In ths expectation he ex
pressed at Essen and had helped to keen
free from reproach the memory " of hi
friend, the late Herr Krupp. The working
classes were always the object, of his deeo
Interest and solicitude. Therefore he was
justified In addressing a word of warning
For years they had let themnelves be led
by agitators and socialists, under the de
lusion that they must belong to the party
If they wished to better their position.
That was a great lie and a serious mistake.
These agitators had tried to stir uo work
lngmen agslnst their employers, against
other classes and against the throne and
altar. At the ssmo time they had most
unscrupulously exploited, terrorised and
enslaved them In order to strengthen Ihelr
own power. They had sown hatred between
the classes and disseminated cowardlv
slanders,. from which nothing, not even the
grandest quality lhe honor of German
manhood remained Immune. With such
people the working class, as honor-loving
men, should have nothing to do.
He concluded with asking the deputation
to send a comrade from their midst, a sim
ple, unpretending man from tho workshoo
Into the national Parliament. Fueh a mn
would be gladly welcomed as a working rep
resentative of tho German worklmr el.
The representatives of other classes would
willingly work with such renresentntiu..
however many they might be.
EMPEROR CONDUCTS BAND

Baton with Professional
BERLIN, Dec. 6. Emperor William led
the band of the Culrrasler regiment at
Xcudcck, near Brcelau, on Tuesday night,
handling tbe baton with quite a pro
fessional air. ,.
The emperor asked the band to play an
old cavalry march composed in 1403 and
called "Steerdebeker," which Von Moltke,
himself one of the finest amateur musicians
In Germany, resurrected and rewrote as a
musical curiosity. Thereupon his majesty
took the baton and conducted several old
Hanoverian marches. He afterward handed
the baton to Von Moltke, who directed
several of his own compositions. The next
day tho emperor visited the band while it

teen months before I took to my bed with
It. My stomach was most affected. It
became very sensitive and would not retain
food at all. My bowels also troubled me.
my limbs were swollen snd I had freauent
