Sioux City has petitioned the United
States government to release the quaran
tine on western Iowa against the foot
and mouth disease. Yesterday South
Omaha and Omaha addressed the same
request to Washington through F. A.
Stryker of the yards, who Is now in
the national capital. It is felt in Sioux
City and South Omaha that the quaran
tine on western Iowa feed lots can be
raised with safety.
Working with renewed energy, officials
of the railroads centering In Omaha con
tinue their efforts to keep the hoof and
mouth disease, now prevalent in a num
ber of the states, from Invading Ne
braska. This work commenced early last
week and before instructions to act were
received from the Department of Agri
culture. In combating the possible coming of
the hoof and mouth disease into Ne
braska and attacking the cattle here, all
roads are following substantially the
same plan, the one outlined and' recom
mended by the government. Officers of
all the Omaha roads are assembling their
cars at division points. There they are
first being cleaned, after which they are
thoroughly scrubbed Inside and out with
soap and water, after which they are
sprayed with a solution of carbolic acid.
The expense Is about S3 per car.
Not only are the roads disinfecting
their own cars, but at the same time they
are - disinfecting those of other roads,
car that happen to be la their posesslort
at the time whsa the government order
became effective. The work' la all done
under the direction and supervision of an
officer of the government. After each
car Is thoroughly cleansed and disin
fected, on the side Is tacked a white card
n Which, printed in red, Is the notice of
disinfecting, stating the date, where, by
whom, together" with the signature of the
official who supervised the work.
