PROCEEDINGS UNDER PACKERS AND STOCKYARDS ACT Docket No. 286.-In re T. G. Lande r s, complainant, v. Union Stock Yards Co. of Omaha, (Ltd.), defendant, Union Stock Yards, Omaha, Nebr. On February 1, 1929, T . G. Landers filed with the Department of Agriculture a complaint against the Union Stock Yards Co. of Omaha (Ltd. ), alleging that the stockyard company had refused to weigh live tock to purchasers who were on his open order list, that this constituted a , iolation of the packers and stockyards act, and prayed for reparation. The stockyard company replied, alleging in substance that the complaint was indefinite, and requested that the complainant be required to amend it so as to make it more definite and certain. The Secretary of Agriculture, under date of March 20, 1929, directed the complainant to amend the complaint so as to make it more definite, which was done. A hearing was held in this matter on April 26, 1929, before an examiner of the Department of Agriculture, at which time both parties were represented by counsel. Upon a thorough con ideration of the evidence in this case, the Secretary found that defendant did not violate the packers and stockyards act, 1921, as alleged in the complaint and therefore complainant was not entitled to reparation as the evidence did not show that he sustained any damages. Accordingly the complaint was dismissed on July 16, 1929. Docket No. 288.-In re T. G. Landers, compl ainant, v. The '!embers of the Live Stock Exchange at Omaha, N br. On February 2, 1929, T. G.
