DOMESTIC FOOD PBODUCTS. a -.. -.. THeunaaed by the United State Veteriwuy Medical Association. Closing Session of the Twenty-seventh Twenty-seventh Twenty-seventh Annual jueeiins cital Hall. Vest Inspection Treated from Standpoint of the Expert The Banquet. the FRIrNDS OF MAN'S BEST FRIEND The members of the United State Veter inary Medical Association, who concluded their twei)ty-se twei)ty-se twei)ty-se venth annual meeting at the Audi torrid recital ball yesterday, got pretty far away from the horse as a general topic of discussion and devoted their attention chiefly to the domestic animals that are nsed as food. The meeting was, the members said. the most interesting they had ever held, and daring the afternoon session 1C9 persons were present, all of then pre sumably veterinarians. The first business after the roll call in the morning was the discussion discussion of incompetent veterinary surgeons in the United States Army. Their pay was much too small it v.aa said. Dr. D. . Salmon, I Chief of the Bureau of Animal Industry, read a paper on "The Last Studies in Bacteriology, as it Befers to Domesticated Animals and the Diseases in Them." This paper treated at great length and with considerable minuteness of detail such diseases as pleuro pneumonia and others that are regarded as contagious. Dr. Salmon illustrated his subject with numer ous stereopticon news of bacteria and other disease germs. n THX ATTEBSOOJI the first business was the reading of a paper by Professor B. 8. Huidekoper, of Philadel phia, the newly elected President of the association, association, on "Contraction of the Horse's Foot and Contracted Heels." This was almost entirely entirely technical, and described the various de rices for curing deformity in horses' feet. After this Professor A- A- Liautard, dean of the American Veterinary College and one of the foremost men in his profession, read a paper on "Veterinary Jurisprudence." He said the veterinarian's was not a simple calling, but was multiform in its duties. Getting into his subject, he said: "Our laws follow largely liio old common law of i-ngianO, i-ngianO, i-ngianO, ana the English law of warranty was what the veterinarian had to be guided by m snrinz his certificate as to the soundness or unsoundness of a horse." Dr. Liautard objected that our laws were much too vague on this subject. A horse might have a perfectly apparent blemish that would never mcenere viui nis u I ui ufnn, J " no Lutiui not be warranted as sound. On the other hand there might be some latent trouble not discoverable in the short time accorded for the examination, which would vet become ap parent shortly after the transfer of the animal from one owner to another. These considera tions eTeatly increased the difficulties with which the examining veterinarian had to lend. DE. LIACTARD CBGID that there be. a concert of action toward securing securing the enactment in this country of laws similar to those in vogue on the continent of Europe. In France it is not so much considered considered whether there is a slight and apparent blemish as whether there is, at the time of the examination, a disease which will interfere with the usefulness of the animal. Such diseases are called "rehibitory vices," and are such as are not apparent to the observer noon a superficial examination. After the transfer of the animal a certain time is re ouired to elapse before the consummation of the bargain, in order to giro tune for the de-Veiopment de-Veiopment de-Veiopment of such diseases. Dr. Olaf Schwartzkopff, of St Anthony Park, Minn., and a graduate of the Boyal Veterinary College of Berlin, read a paper on ''Sanitary Meat Inspection," which opened the liveliest discussion of the day. Ho said there should be both ante-mortem ante-mortem ante-mortem and post mortem inspection of cattle. mere were many diseases the presence of which could only be detected by a post-mortem post-mortem post-mortem examination. examination. There were others apparent before death, and some of them of a character which . required the killing of the animal and the ' dt stroring of its carcass. In other cases the animal might be slaughtered and such parts of it as were fit for food selected, while the r.st was thrown away. Of this class he held to be actinimycosis and interculosis in the vernacular. LIMP JAW AST) OOXSCTCPTION. He spoke of the inadequacy of all our meat I inspection laws, and said that it was impossi-tble impossi-tble impossi-tble to conduct a proper inspection in the Irilthv slaughter houses which we have. The butcher objects to the sanitarians entering Lis slaughter house; but this is just where bo siiomd go. Public abbatoirs should be built ' and kept in a proper sanitary condition, and here all animals should be slaughtered. Veterinarians, not butchers, should i e the meat inspectors. Mr. Schwartzkopff spoke of the tarn unas Dili, ana saia its provisions for the inspection oi meat lor export were entirely entirely inadequate, inasmuch as it provided only lor me microscopic examination of the salt pork, the hardened condition condition of which would make this examination examination unsatisfactory. Consequently another examination would probably be requierea on tne otner siae, increasing the coat of the meat to the poor consumer for whose use it was intended. He thought the law would not greatly assist the raising of the embargo on American pork Mr. Byrne, of Brooklyn, read a paper on the use of moss pads to take the place of the poultices now ordinarily used. Dr. John Meyers, Sr., of Cincinnati, read one suggesting suggesting that there was danger in using cotton seed cakes as food for cattle, as he thought it likely that the fiber of the cotton that often adhered to the seed produced a violent disarrangement or the digestive organs. le attributed the death of twenty oxen in one distillery to this cause. IX Tint DHCC88IO!t of the papers that followed Mr. Salmon said nothing was yet known of the character of the Texas fever germ outside of the body of the niniai, out mil it existed outeiae or it was proven by the fact that in an infected pasture the infection grew worse as the season advanced, advanced, indicating a multiplication of the perms. Dr. Salmon also explained the inspection inspection of American cattle in England, say- say- i U... .U- .U- 1- 1- i- i- . : , J i-m i-m i-m iuk me nun wae very supernciauy done. There was one inspector at each of the three principal landing places, who watched the cat-tie cat-tie cat-tie come off the ship. If any of them looked sick they were driven off by themselves and examined. The United States Government now also has an inspector at each of these points, put there to trace out cases of pleuropneumonia. pleuropneumonia. They were there entirely by the courtesy of the British Government. It was thought likely that in supposed cases of pleuro-pneumonia pleuro-pneumonia pleuro-pneumonia there had been a mistake in the diagnosis. On the other hand, if this country was sending infected cattle abroad, the American inspectors could help trace the history of the disease. Dr. Salmon said that practically there was no more pleuro-pneumonia pleuro-pneumonia pleuro-pneumonia in America. It had been stamped out. I'here was much more of it in England and Ireland, where they were just beginning the crusade against the disease disease that had already been waged successfully successfully here. He, however, thought there was little danger of its importation Into this country country if our quarantine officers were alert. DX. W. I WILLI AM , or BLOOMXQTON, and the President of the Illinois Veterinary Medical Association, said that in this State animals affected with actinimyeoais or tuberculosis tuberculosis were destroyed.- destroyed.- He differed with Dr. Schwartzkopff in thinking that some portions of the meat might be fit for food.

Altogether, the majority or ine members appeared to ; be opposed to Dr. SchwartzkopflTs position. - - Upon motion a committee composed of Dr. Williams, Dr. Schwartzkopff, ana Dr. Clement, Clement, of Baltimore,-was Baltimore,-was Baltimore,-was appointed to report at the next meeting,: a year henoe, on meat inspection. inspection.
