That is largely owing to the fact that this 'p.y has been set annrt as naval day and

The result of this
lack of Interest shows all through the as
sessors' return. Th number of dairy cows
In Nebraska I given a 684,646, whereaa the
government report of February laat cred
ited u with 870,000 milch cow. I am con
vinced that figure 1 much nearer correct
than th figure In the bulletin. Taking the
production of butter a ZOO pounds per cow
per year, on the government figure we
would get 177,100,000 pounds of butter. Al
lowing 11 cent a pound- very tow aver
age for Nebraska marketable butter we
get a ralu of $33,004,000; and If we take
20 cent, a much fairer figure, our contribu
tion to butter product value wilt be $35.
660,000. Bo In this on Item, aa will be read
ily seen, our stats returns would stand for
a large Injustice to Nebraska In statistics.
"Why do I say the government figure
are more nearly correct?
'Th main reason la that our farmer in
all too many Instances labor under the im
pression that In some way our figure may
be used for purposes of taxation, or for
board of trade purposes, which they never
are, and in some cases refuse to give the
assessors any information at all of a
statistical nature. Th assessor (a some
of them hav told me) then either make a
guess or pass ovr th case entirely. Be
sides, drovss of cow are kept by ones,
two and threes for family use, and for
neighborhood milk supply that are never
noted In any report. A the matter stand.
I do not fe Ilk blaming either the farmer
or th deputy assessors, because the state
doe not go about this buslnss In a bust
neaallk way. Hence, -' do not get really
accurate results, only approximate correct
peaa. Getting the rarus Ceaeu.
"In taking what I have called a 'farm

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4. (Special.) If
every man and woman on eaith could
know and appreciate the work of the
Tuberculosis congress, now in session In
Washington, consumption would oon be
tramped out. Modern ranltary methods and
modern Ideas have eliminated from the
list of human 'U' many of th disss
which formerly ievanlat?d states, coun
tries and nations. The "plague" which de
populated .London some centuries ago Is
pr.ietli a.ly unknown today. Typhu fever
Is seldom heard of now, and "yellow
Jack." which was always present In San
tiago and Havana to the menace of the
t'nlted States,' has been almost eliminated
since those cities were cleaned up In
1899 a th results of American occupatlrn.
The phthisis experts, who are now In
Washington In attendance upon the ccn
gres., sre arreed upon one point at lusc.
Tl.ey are practically unanimous In Oeclar
ing that plenty of fresh air, proper food
and ample rest will result In the cure
of ivin obstinate cus: of consumption.
They are a. so agreed, apparently, that It
la net necessary, to "change climate." The
patktit with symptoms of tul.erculosis need
no: leave Chicago, or Waslilngtan, New
York or Omaha If he, or she, will observe
the rules of health. Absolute rest during
the continuance of the fever, which is a
ertwin symptom of the disease, plenty of
lure air and absence of worry are the
prime requisites. The very ablest prao
t.tloners, who make tuberculosis their spe
cialty, are all ugr-ed upon this, and the
results of such treatment In Pennsylvania
and New York particularly, bear out their
Cause to Be Eliminated.
Yet there still remains an open question
aa to the best method of stamping out the
cause of the prevalence and spread of "the
great white plague."
Among the delegates to the congress now
In session here Is Dr. C. B. Dyson of Chi
cago, who is one of the most eminent veter
inary surgeons in the country, and who has
devoted much of his time to human as well
as bovine tuberculosis. Dr. Dyson Is firmly
of th belief that the United State can
and should stamp out consumption.
"Twenty year ago," he said today,
"pleuro-pneumonia and th foot and
mouth' disease among cattle were common
in every section of the country. The causes
of those diseases were unknown. But the
remedy was easily ascertained. It con
sisted solely In the slaughter of every herd
affected, and, under authority vested in It
by the congress of the United States, the
bureau of animal Industry of the Depart
ment of Agriculture proceedod to kill and
pay for every affected animal. The result?
Today there is sot a known case of either
of ;thi3( corWBr' dlseaao-ln any herd
of cattle In America,
"On the other hand. It ta known positively
that 17 per cent of all the dairy cattle
from which the milk supply of the city of
New York la obtained are cows suffering
from tuberculosis. Many cities have
adopted ordinances which assure the con
sumer of milk -against the cow with tuber
culosis But there la no guarantee backed
by federal authority that th consumptive
cow of Iowa or Illinois does not furnish
the butter or milk for Milwaukee or New
York. The federal laws protect the con
sumer of meat and meat products from the
danger of consuming the flesh of diseased
animals, provided, oi course, that the ani
mal Is slaughtered In an establishment
which Is under government supervision. But
the report made to the bureau of animal
Industry show that-of all the carcasses of
beef cattle inspected DO per cent of those
condemned are cows. As less than 30 per
cent of cattle slaughtered In the establish
ments under federal Inspection are cows, It
follows that the greater number of cow
are probably killed for food by local butch
era and are tainted with the baclllu of the
Hon Also Salter.
"The same la true of hogs, especially
those which are bred and fed on dairy,
farm. It has never been demonstrated
that a human being contracted consump
tion from eating the meat of an animal
affected by tuberculosis. There are two
prlmereuaons for this. In the first place
a degree of heat sufficiently to properly
cook pork or beef will certainly destroy
the bacilli of consumption. Again the dis
ease attacks the lymphatic glands and the
viscera and those are parts not usually
eaten But, on the other hand, the hogs
slaughtered by the packers of Chicago,
Omaha, Kansas City. Buffalo and other
poir.ts which are condemned by the federal
Inspectors are almost always traced back
to dairy farms and frequently to the ex
periment stations. The natural Inference
Is that these hogs contract the disease
from Infected cattle. Now If a hog can con
tract consumption from drinking thf milk
of a cow Infected with tuberculosU, it
follows that an Infar.t may be. and un
doubtedly la. equally suaceptlble to con
tract the disease from a like source. Con
sequently It would appear to be the duty
of the federal government to step In and
absolutely prohibit th traffic in- milk and
dairy product, butter and cheese, from
one tate.to another without federal in
spection of the herds which supply the
Oaa Great Dlfflealty.
"It has been demonstrated, beyond the
shadow of a doubt, that an animal Buffering
from tuberculosis csn be picked out. But
the trouble lies in the fact that the dis
ease is most prevalent among th high
grade 'pampered' animals. The owner re
sent the idea of federal interference, and
up to the present tlm they hav fought
against federal, state and municipal in
pecjion. A cow suffering from pleuro
pneumonia or foot and mouth disease soon
die. But an animal infected with tubercu
losis may continue to produce milk for
year, with no outward ymptom of dis
ease. When she Is worn out she Is still
salable for beef to th local butcher, and
the owner suffer no loss. Th result is
that the owner, through Ignorance, stupid
ity or both, resists any Inspection proper
sitlon which might affect hi pocket.
"W ar today on the eve of a revolu
tion In our sanitary methods, and I believe
that before th tuberculosis congress ad
journs it will tak step toward calling the
attention of th country md of th world
to the necessity for legislation which will
protect th consumer from danger through
the use of Infected milk aad buvger. Th
time whan such legislation w11 be enacted

of the relations between the two countries.
Tho International and political slghlflcance
of the visit has not been lost sight of here,

service for both officers and men between
Yokohama and Toklo. No American In
uniform will have to spend his own money

BRYAN'S PLANS FOR THE WEEK
Hear Report that Rooaerelt la to
Take the Stump..
LINCOLN. Neb., Oct. 4. That Presi
dent Roosevelt fully Intends to take the
stump In favor of tho candidacy of Mr.
Taft wa th Information received at
Falrvlew today from the east. It was
said that the advices came from per
son upon whom reliance could be placed,
and were to the effect that Mr. Roose
velt la planning to make at least six
speeches in the course of a trip from the
Atlantic to tne raciric. ine concluding
speech to be delivered at San Kranclaro,
with numerous short speeche enroute.
Mr, Bryan,- however, absolutely refused
to make any comment upon the subject.
In order to devote still further atten
tion to the stute of Iowa, the democratic
candidate tonight announced a change
in hi plana In connection with his trip
to Chicago, where on the night of Octo
ber 7 he la to meet Mr. Taft at a ban
quet. Instead of leaving here Tuesday
afternoon and going direct to Chicago,
as had been arranged, Mr. Bryan will
start tomorrow night for Dea Moines,
from which point ha will on Tuesday
proceed to Perry, Tama and Cedar Rapid
and deliver set speeches, while from th
rear platform of the train enroute he
probably will make several short talk.
The journey to Chicago will be made
Tuesday night. Although It haa not
been definitely' settled. It now Is planned
that Mr. Bryan shall speak In Bt. Louis
Frlady evening and then re-enter Kan
sas on Saturday for a full day in that
state, returning to Lincoln Sunday, it
also la likely that before making hi
final trip Into the middle weat and tho
east he will spend a day or two In cam
lalgnlng in his home state.
The day at Falrvlew today was a quiet
one. In the afternoon Mr. and Mrs.
Bryan drove to the homes of several
sick friends and later the democratic can
didate called at the Hotel Lincoln and
held a brief conference with Senator
Oore, who was about leaving for St.
Joseph, Mo. ,
Tomorrow evening Mr. Bryan will go out
to Havelock, where are located th shop
of the Burlington railroad, and address
the laboring men. Mr. Taft a few days
ago spoke at the same place.

oC'juiCi Taft being fresh in the minds of
the pecple, the audience which heard Mr.
Bryan laat night . had an opportunity to
size up tho two candidates. From the
Bryan meeting the people carried home the
remembrance of a nice entertainment; some
good stories; a pleasing speech thst was
all. From the Taft meeting the people car
ried home with them a definite Idea of
what Mr. Taft would do If elected presi
dent; an Idea of the great problems which
will have to be met by the head of the
American government; an Idea of the great
responsibility which rests upon that Indi

Bryan and Gore Meeting;.
Benator Gore and Mr. Bryan had a splen
did meeting at the Auditorium last night,
there being many republicans In the audi

told. Here are a few of the arguments
Senator Gore used to convince the people
of Lincoln that they should vote the dem
