The National league constitution was
amended In the matter of the waiver of

lowly within the Infield by, the batsman.

not legally caught a strike may be called
by the umpire."

CHICAGO. Feb. 15. D. K. Hall well, sec
retary for Swift and Company, and Arthur
Meeker, general superintendent for Armour

ers' case. Both gave Information regarding
the request of the government for Informa
tion, the alleged promise of the government
that It would not be used against the pack
ers, and then told how the Information de
sired by Commissioner Garfield was fur
nished by the packets.
Mr. Meeker asserted that the government
at one time showed a disposition to Investi
gate the working of the Armour Car com
pany, but that when he informed Commis
sioner Garfield that Armour t Co. did not
own the cars and that they had nothing to
do with the fresh meat business, no further
effort was made to look Into the affairs of
the car companies.
I). H. Hartwell was the first witness
! called. He detailed the first conversation
between representatives of Swift and Com
pany and Special Agent Dutand of the
government, when Mr. Durand assured the
packers, according to the witness, that all
Information would be held Inviolate and
that the policy of the government contem
plated the protection of the packers and
from any disadvantages as the result of
the disclosure;-, lie further asserted that
orders were given directing the employes
of the company to give Information as de
sired, for tho reason, as the witness de
clared, "we could see no way to prevent
the giving of the Information."
Arthur Meeker, general superintendent of
Armour & Co., followed Mr. Hartwell on
tho stand. He detailed bis conversation
with Commissioner Garfield and said the
commissioner assured him that the govern
ment would have due regard for the rights
of the packers and they would not be In
jured by the Information they might give
Mr. Meeker declared that a disinclination
was felt by the officers of Armour & Co.
to furnish all the Information asked for by
the 1 government, as they felt thnt soijin
of It was of a private character which
should not be made public. T. J. Connors,
general manager of Armour & Co., went to
Washington for a consultation with Com
missioner Garfield. It was then declared,
the witness said, that the agents of the
government should be given figures on tho
export business, but not on the profit and
loss. Mr. Meeker was on the stand
throughout the afternoon and his direct
exandnation was nearly finished at the
adjournment of court.

GOOD LOOKING AFTER FENCES
emaha Senator, Candidate for Treas
urer and Dlmrry of Seward
Senators Good of Nemaha and Dim err
of Seward counties spent Thursday In
Omaha. Senator Good Is a candidate for
the republican nomination for state treas
urer, and Senator Dlmery. so far as is
known, will succeed himself In the senate
next winter. Senator Oood was a member
of the house In the session tft W3. A
school teacher by profession and a resident
of Teru, the site of the oldest slate nor
mal school, It was not strange thnt he was
ou. of the ardent champions pf 'educa
tional measures, especially those which
bore any relation to normal matters. With
Representative Gregg of Wayne county,
he shared the distinction of "schoolma'rm
member." But that did not tend at any
stage of the term to depress or suppress
e'ther Gregg or Good. At every turn In
the road when educational blli were 113
these two members also were up-on their
feet and talking, too.
Gregg surpassed his colleague from Peru
in at least one particular, and that was
the Introduction of bills. . For that mat
ter It Is not a matter of memory that any
other member beat Gregg In this respect.
And all but a few hundred of his bills
were "school bills." Good only Introduced
a trifling numlier of such measures, some
thing less than .W.
In the. senate, too. Good maintained his
record for looking after this sort of legis
lation, though not exclusively. In both
branches he became a leading member.
Senator nimery was one of the young
members of the senate last winter and
)ne of the most aggressive.
