Death of Hundreds o* Cattle from the Hit
nets Pestilente--What we Eat—Whe is
Meat Inspector and What are His Duties!
Some days ago attention was called in
the editorial colums of the GAZETTE to the
prevalence of a fatal disease amongst the
cattle of Illinois, and_ the warning was
given that the pestilence must necessarily
spread by rail to our city. The anticipa
.tions of the editor have been more than ver
ified, for the awful pestilence has reached
our city and caused an alarm never before
felt in this locality by both the consumers
of meat and the' owners of stock. On
Friday last a drove of two hundred cattle
'were shipped to , this point by a prominent
Illinois stock dealer,. and of that number
thirty-nine died on their way - hither and
sixty-seven perished' in the East Liberty
stock yards. Nor is this all. Of a smaller
drove shipped to Pittsburgh, a number .died
on their way and ten fell victims to the fatal
disease at East Liberty on Saturday bit,
while, with not a single exception, the ani
mals embraced in the drove were more or
less diseased. Our reporter visited
the principal stock yards of Alleghe
ny and Pittsburgh yesterday, in or
der to arrive at some definite• knowl
edge of the extent of the pestilence; but
drovers and others were so very reticient
about the matter that he had to depend
much on the statements of outsiders for the
alarming facts just stated. It is not known
how many of these diseased animals have
been slaughtered and retailed by our
butchers to their patrons; but that there
I have been many customers so imposed
upon is amply evidenced in the fact
that hundreds of., families on last Sun
day sat down to the dinner table with
rank, foul-smelling and diseased meat be
fore them.. We are not alarmists, Mat are
anxious to let our readers know that a hor-
Inble and fatal cattle disease has been
brought to our city from the West, and
there is no knowing how disastrous may
be the consequences: It is hardly sate
during its prevalence to butte fresh beef,
and too much prudence cannot be exer
chied In the purchase of this almost neces
sary article 'of food. True, the city
has., a, Meat ,Inspector, but from in
yesterday we are led tti believe
that that officet' hasTalledlo properly dis
charge his duties; that the office seems to
.haye been regarded as a mere smeeure,.and
"that the. Interests of thepublic have been
'frightfully disregarded. 'ln Search of' him
yesterdayyolirrep,Or found/that he had
•no, ori headquarter!, and
that, at some 'stalls at least, in the market,
he was -
an almost unknown official.
fie ocial.
alarm was sounded by him, and 'were
it not for the industry ofthelocalreporters,
perhaps, the community would not to-day
have been advised of the terrible pestilence
paring amongst the cattle imported to our
city from the westerriStates. Councils cer
tainly did not create this office far the par
pospof paying a salary to any indivifflial
for duty half performed or . performed• not
, at all. .
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company,
with a `Prudence and foresight :worthy of
commendation, yesterday refused to trans
port to the Eastern cities any part of, the
-stocks afflicted with thecoritaglous disease.
This course is ernineutly proper, and.may
I possiblysaVe our friends east of the Alle
gheny mountains froth the infliction of a
eattlepestilence. which seems imminent in
this neighborhood. At the Allegheny
Cattle Yards we eotild learn nothing of the
presence of the disease, although we be
lieve that it must likewise prevail there.
The drovers naturally cloud the matter
over and conceal the truth, as they are
largely inteeested in the suppression of
facts, and seek to dispose of their stocks
before full knoWledge of the extent of the
disease is made known. •
Incidentally we learned last evening that
the City Meat . Inspector, aroused to his
duty by the general alarm felt and ex
pressed throughout the city on this sub
ject, visited the stock yards yesterday and
condemned some three hundred head of
cattle infected with the contagious disease.
How tree this rumor is we know not, but
feel convinced that such a proceeding -
would have been warranted .and proper.
We hope that measures will at once
be taken to dispose of all the cattle brought
to this market having the least sign of die:
ease, that an impending calamity may
be averted and the public health
not made subject to great peril. It is a
matter which willjustify an immediate
meeting of - the City Councils, to take some.
action looking to the suppression of the
evil and preventing its operating to the
detriment of the farmers owning stock
about us and the general public health.
The danger is present, and to avert it should
be a matter of concern to every reader.
Be careful from whom you-purchase meat,
in Order to be sure that it is not full of dis
ease. We , have soundetithe warning, and
lot the wise take heed.
