LITTLE FEAR FOR
Chicago Puts Up the Bars on
' Stock from Three States
RUN DOWN CHASE CASE
Indications are that the1 rumored in
fection of Nebraska cattle in Chase
county reported by Kansas City stock
yards officials late Saturday evening
are unfounded. Dr. Miller, represen
tative of the local veterinarian forces,
after a hurried trip to the location of
the accused cattle, wired in to his
chief, Dr. H., Busman, head of the
veterinarian forces here, that it was
unlikely that the situation would de
velop any seriousness in regard to
Nebraska cattle. - '
Chicago ofScials placed a quaran
tine againjt cattle coming froir Kan
sas, Nebraska and Sioux City this
morning. This was done merely as
a precaution until definite facts should
have become known.
"It is very -unlikely that the situa
tion will develop a serious .nature so
far as Nebraska is concerned," Gen
eral Manager Buckingham of the
local yards said Monday morning. "I
understand Washington officials are
now on their way to Kansas City to
investigate thoroughly the cattle in
question and make a complete report.
v f or tne present we nave uunc
nothing in the way of placing embar
goes, etc. All cattle that come from
the south are being closely watched."
Taking Precautions. ,
Washington, -Nov. 27. It will be
several days before federal experts
can determine whether cattle held at
Kansas City have foot and mouth dis
ease, said a Liepartmeni 01 Agricul
ture statement -issued late today. In
oculation'tests are being made at Kan
sas City and here.
The department's advices covered
only one suspected ase pf the disease,
a shipment pf cattle from Wauneta,
Nebr, to Kansas City, via St. Joseph,
Mo. Reports of local quarantines im
nnserl in cities of the middle west
drew from the department this state
Order of Government.
Washington. Nov. 27. (Special
Telegram.) The Department of
Agriculture todav issued the follow
ing statement regarding suspected ex
istence ot toot ana moutn uiseasc in
certain cattle received at Kansas
the 21st instant there were re
ceived at' Kansas Citjf stock yards
130 cattle shipped from Wauneta,
Neb., unloaded and ted at at. losepn
on the 20th-. Part of these cattle
showed lesions in the mouth, strongly
resembling; foot and mouth disease.
Fifty-seven were slaughtered. Twenty
had been shtDDed to Tescott. Kan.,
for feeding. Balance are held under
lock m Kansas Utytocs; yards pens.
An inspection of the animals on the
farm at Wauneta showed a large
number of horses affected with mouth
lesions, but 700 hogs showing no
lesions. 1 ; -
- "No foot lesions have been found m
any of the animals. Kansas and Ne
braska authorities have - been re
quested to quarantine premises aftd
shiDDine pens. Inspectors instructed
to locate and require disinfection of
alL cars involved. Inspectors sit St.
Joseph . and Kansas City report all
outgoing shipments trom those yards
stopped. - , X ' '
Inoculation tests are being made
at Kansas City and at the depart
ment here.. It undoubtedly will -re
quire, several days betore 'diagnosis
can be arrived at."
Officials plainly were concerned
over the reports and hopad the tests
would snow tne disease to De some
malady that might easily be stamped
out. It wan only last March that the
government declared the country free
of the foot and mouth scourge after
an epidemic that had lasted for many
mooibs and had cost the federal and
state governments millions of dollars.
The disease then spread over twenty-
two states. Hundreds of thousands
of head of live stock were killed and
shipping restrictions upset market
conditions to a great extent. I
Put on Local Quarantine.
Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 27. State Vet
erinarian Anderson late today re
ceived a telegram from Dr.. Melvin,
chief of the United States Bureau of
Animal Industry, asking him to.estab
lish a quarantine of the J. R. Robert
son ranch, near Wauneta, Chase coun
ty. ilt was from this ranch that cattle
were sent to Kansas City, where they
showed signs of having the foot and
mouth dsease. The stock yards at
Wauneta are also to be quarantined
and disinfected. The order is said to
be purely precautionary, and does not
mean that it has been definitely de
cided that there is foot and mouth dis
ease at Wauneta.
According to State Veterinarian
Anderson, frequent reports have come
to'his office of the disease in the state,
but examination always revealed the
trouble to be some simple malady;
The Colorado state veterinarian to
day notified Nebraska officials of the
embargo established in that state
against Nebraska cattle.

English Foreign Office Will Not
Grant Safe Conduct to To"

to United States. V
NOTE IS SENT TO PAGE
Activities of Teuton Diplomats
Alleged in Excess of Their
' Functions . -
NEW CONTROVERSY ARISING
London,. Nov, 27. The foreign of
fice has sent Ambassador Page a note
definitely refusing to grant a safe con
duct to Count Adam Tarnowski von
Tarnow, the new Austro-Hungarian
ambassador to the United States.
The reason fpr the refusal may be
paraphrased as follows: "
&ven 11 iniemauunai law turuauc
the refusal of such a safe conduct the
actions of the Austrian and German
embassies and consulates abroad have
been so much m excess of regular
diplomatic functions that the British
government teels justified in with
holding its consent for such diplomats
to travel to their posts. .
New Controversy Arising.
Washington, Nov. 27. Another
controversy between the American
government and the entente Allies is
in prospect as a result ot the relusai
of the British government to grant
safe conduct to Count Tarnowski, the
ambassador to the United states.
In the absence of official advices on
the subject officials of the State de
partment were not in a position today
to discuss it formally or to forecast
the course the government is likely to
pursue. It was made evident, however,
that the unfavorable action of the
British foreign bffice on the notice of
the intention of the new ambassador
to cross the Atlantic to his post came
as an unpleasant surprise. It had not
been doubted here that Great Britain
would be the last power to deny the
privileged character of a diplomatic
officer Ion such a voyage.'
Attitude in Mason ana ctiiaeu lase.
Aside from the belief that England
would not desire to aifouse adverse
feeling in the United States by inter
ference with the ancient and generally
unquestioned right of a neutral gov
ernment to receive an ambassador or
minister, officials had counted upon
Great Britain's record in the Mason
And Slidell case to prevent such an

violation of the protection afforded
by the British Bag, under which the

Supported by It Allies.
It orobablv " will be on that basis
that the matter of Count Tarnowski's
interrunted mission wilLbe taken up
with the allies, for it is well under
stood that the London foreign omce
is supported by France, Italy and
Russia in its action.
It was learned today that the State
department so far has not made a
formal request for a safe1 conduct for
the Austrian ambassador, but has
confined itself to a transmission of the
request of the American government
for such a courtesy. Therefore, it is
nrobable thSt if the issue is to be
made it will be necessary for ' the
Uqited States now to make such re
quest on its own' account.
There is an absence of any prece
dent exactly fitting this case that re
quires the department to be very care
ful in assuming ground, and the text
of the note handed Ambassador Page
will be awaited before a decision as to
the course to be followed is reached.

to would prevent a new Turkish am
