day brought word to the Navy depart
ment that all was well aboard these two
American warships In the Mediterranean
and denied that marines or bluejackets
had been landed by the North Carolina
at Beirut, Syria.
' For three days the department had been
flooded with messages from friends and
relatives of men on the cruisers who
were alarmed by published rumors that
the North Carolina had been blown up

count of Interrupted cable service there
had been no communication with the ves
sels for more than a week.
By this noon the last of the suspected
Chicago cattle In Nebraska will have been
traced down and reported upon to the

out within a radius of 150 miles tracing
down a load of cattle which came through
Nebraska from the Chicago yards within
the last six weeks. Bo far the cattle of
this shipment inspected have proved to
be In first class condition and It Is gen
erally admitted now that Nebraska will
come through the sjege without ono caae
of the foot and mouth disease.
As coon as the suspected shipments
have been canvassed and reported on to
