Cattle A moderate run of cattl showed
up, 7,400 head, but tha two days' supply has
been nearly t,000 heavier than a week ago.
Quality of th cattl was very good as a
rule, but the market was just th. reverse of
yesterday in that trade was very (lugglsh
right from the start and prices weak to lOe
lower for both beef steers and butcher
stock. Congested railroad facilities are
largely responsible for the wak ton to th
cattle trade at this time, as both packers
and shipper are finding much difficulty In
moving dressed beef and live stock. While
there were not a great many stock cattl
and feeding tears. on sale the demand was
very slack, and prices unevenly lower except
for choice medium and heavy weight grades.

Big Receipt Stimulate Broader Trading In
Corn, Leading tn Weakness In Values.
Chicago, Jan. 22. Big receipts stimulated
broader trading In th corn market today
than has been th ease for a long time, and
led to weakness In values. The elos waa
nervous, at the same as yesterday's finish
to Ho lower, with March 1.24 e and
May 1.2301.23'Jc. Oats clostd c off to
0 advance, and provisions down 6c to
Arrival of corn here showed such a de
cided Increase that a general rush to sell
took place. It was definitely known that a
considerable portion of the receipts came
from a clean-up of congestion on on of the
principal western lines and ther was much
talk current that the supply might temper-
arlly exceed the demand. Slowness of east
ern shipping Inquiry added to bearish senti
ment, but snow flurries and a prediction of
colder weather tonight operated later as
something of an offset. Profit-taking by
bears tended further to unsettle th mar
ket toward the end of th session.
Oats reflected the weakness of corn, but
word of 600,000 bushels sold at Minneapolis
and elsewhere for export prevented any ag
gressiveness by the bears.
Plentiful supplies of hogs seemed to re
strict inquiry for provisions, and to weaken
prices. Business In lard cam nearly to a
complete halt.

Nothing But Wild, Untamed,
Horses Being Slaughtered
by Butchers Who Sell
"Hoss" Meat.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LiYoln. .fan. 22.- (Spfcia!.) State
Veterinarian J. S. Anderson spfot the
last of !aM week in Grand Island and
while there inspected the horse meat
market which has been the subject
of so much controversy.
Dr. Anderson says that the market
does not attempt to handle any other
meat except horse meat, tish and
chickens. The horses killed are sub
ject to a very complete mallien test
for the purpose of discovering if the
animals are free from disease. No
domesticated animals are used, noth
ing but the wild, unbroken animal
being butchered. One day last week
a farmer brought in a nice fat mare,
appearing to be sound in every way
except for being; stone blind. The
market refused to buy her.
One Hastings market uses horse
meat exclusively on meatless days,
and has a sign up so that people may
know what they are buying. Where
evcr the meat has been used it has
met with universal satisfaction and
in the minds of many veterinarians is
a much safer meat than tliat of beef
from the standpoint of disease germs.

yew U. S. Passports
Much Reduced in Size
(By Associated Press.)
Washington, Jan. 22. The time
honoted old American passport,
vjitli its vast expanse of parchment
paper headed by an American
spread eagle with talons full of
javelins, has at last given way to a
modern and convenient document.
Fvcept in the case of persons trav
eling in the western continents the
oid passports shall not be issued.
Travelers bound to Europe and
Asia must in every case take out
new passports.
The size of the passport has
been reduced to just one-half of
its old proportions and it is en
closed within a small green si iff
cover fitting easily into an ordi
nary pocket.
It ha often been the case that
non-Fnglish speaking officials in
small places could not be made to
iiiuler.stand the nature of the docu
ment, so the new passport bears
within the cover statement print
ed in different languages, "This
document ' is an American passport."
London, Jan. 22. The bitter attack
on the war office and the higher com
mand of the army by the Daily Mail
has made a decided stir throughout
the country.
Coincident with this comes the an
nouncement of the resignation of
Colonel Rt'pingtoii, the military cor
respondent of the Times. Both
newspapers are under Lord North
cliffe s direction and the public
couples the two incidents.
Colonel Repington told interview
ers today that he resigned on public
grounds and protested strongly
against what he termed intrigues
against the army by politicians. In
the same interview he said:
"The government has lost the con
fidence not only of labor, but of the
great majority of the people, and if
existing methods are allowed to con
tinue will succeed in wrecking both
the military and naval services. The
great crime of the government is that
it will not tell the nation the truth."
Declaring that the army has seen
one good man after another sacrificed
to cover the blunders and intrigues
of politicians, he continued:
"Twelve months ago the govern
ment knew quite well what the posi
tion was. It was placed before them
in a memorandum by the army au
thorities, but no effort has been made
to meet that demand. The same game
is played every time in this attempt
to shift the responsibility for blunders
from the politician to the soldier and
Colonel Repington is considered the
foremost military critic in Kngland.
He is credited with exceptional inside
knowledge of the army and acquaint
ance with the higher officers.

New York, Jan. ,22. Authentic,
news of the sinking of three large
steamers, one an American freighter,'
while a convoy of which they were a.
nart was passing a lighthouse on the
Mediterranean Spanish coast last
month, was received in shipping cir
cles here today from Spain. No.
lives were lost. The names of the
ships were withheld.
The attack occurred at midnight.
The American ship was second in the
convoy. As the leading vessel came
into line between the lighthouse and.
the spot where the submarine lurked
obliterating probably the beams from
the light, the torpedo which sunk her
was fired. Before the American ves
sel -could shift her course she too
crossed the beams and was fired
upon, the torpedo hitting her square
amidships. As the crews were launch
ing their boats they heard the explo-
sion of the third torpedo which sent
to the bottom the ship immediately
So near the short did the sinking .
occur that the inhabitants of a small ;
Spanish village near the lighthouse,
were awakened by the explosions.
I hey hurried to the heacn and gave
aid to the crews when they landed '
from their lifeboats.
