CHICAGO, Nov. 6. A large part of tha

other western cities, and the Chicago
Union stock yards, for the first time
since Its organization in 1S65, was closed

The packers tonight sent to Kansas

1,000 killers and butchers to kill and dress
tho animals which ordinarily would have
been sent to Chicago. Thoy announced
that the producta from their western
plant would be sufficient to supply the
market without any change In prices.
An optimistic view waa taken, of the
situation here. All the packers said they
had enough stock on hand to run their
plants for three or four days, and none
of them would entirely shut down. A. Q.
Leonard, president of the stock yards,
"By the middle of next week every ani

and the thousands of pens and. miles of
water troughs will have been cleaned and
disinfected. I feel confident full opera

"Our only apprehension is thut the dis

the government might quarantlno and
we would be unable to get cattle even

bureau, to be under the management of
a state official, every teacher may regis
