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 ton, Kan. 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.
