INVESTIGATE CAUSE OF
DEATH OFKANSAS HOGS
Claim Agent Whitcomb of the Roek Is
land road is in town, having come up
from Topeka to try and unravel the in
tricacies of(a cfalm presented by Ueorge
Jenkins, a farmer, residing near Washing
Jenkins shipped some hogs to the
Omaha market and either before ahlp-
rnent, or while enroute, they contracted
cholera and a number or them died. The
others were condemned, and Instead of
being converted Into hams, shoulders
and loins, went Into the fertilizer vats.
Of course the owner realised only a frac
tion of what they would have brought if
they had been sold at the market price
paid for pork. Consequently, he holds that'
the railroad company should pay the dif
ference, contending that when nls hoga
left the home farm they were healthy,
having contracted the disease by having
been fed on Infected corn, or come in
contact with hogs that had cholera.
