THE MARKET REPORT
Daily market letter from the M.
L. Williams Commission company,
Coates block, Plattsmouth, Neb.:
Wheat The closing of the session
of the Chicago board of trade today
was one of great excitement, .even
for that active body. A large open
interest was maintained In the Sep
tember delivery of wheat until the
last, and as the last few moments
dragged along the excitement became
more intense, and Ihe wheat for this
month's delivery, which opened at
$1.06, gained at each trade, mount
ing until at 1 o'clock it was selling
at $1.11, and the holders reluctant
to part with their property even at
that fancy price. Those who had sold
for delivery, and needed the grain,
were forced to' offer higher and still
higher prices, and the quotations
were like the thermometer tin a hot
day- every few seconds added lc
to the price until $1.20 had been reg
istered, when a little recession was
had, the- price reacting to $1.19,
and' then playing between that 'and
$1.20 until the close, the final sale
being at that price.
-. Corn The opposite procedure was
the rule In the corn pit from that
which characterized the leading
cereal wheat. The. price of corn,
which had held firm- for the most
part of the day, began to give way,
and from the opening the price of
September corn at 64c, the price
slipped away until the close that de
livery down to 61c, where it closed.
Oats Was a busy member in the
closing days of the month, as during
the first of the week It was selling
at 39 c, and while crawling up at
1 and 2 cent Jumps sold during the
day at 50c, and closed with but little

The Chicago Inter-Ocean says
Wheat Traders with northwestern
connections were very bearish all day
yesterday, and the northwest sold
wheat here. A bear's explanation of
the wheat situation was that the
market would be strong, while the
milling trade and Jobbers of flour are
laying in stocks to provide for a rep
ltitlon of the high prices that pre
vailed last spring. But as we raised
a larger crop than last year the bulls
will eventually be disappointed, and
while wheat may sell higher during
the accumulation of supplies it even
tually muRt sell lower, especially If
the winter wheat goes Into the
ground in good shape, and promises
well next Bprlng, and the spring
wheat farmer can market his crop
freely. Roberts bought more wheat
than any other house. Corn A
great many traders as well as a num
ber of the largrst commission
houses continue very bearish on
corn, although they admit that
bulges every few days after sharp
breaks, but they advise selling May
above 60c for a long pull. Country
contlues a fair seller of new and old
corn, and the cash situation In old
corn was regarded as very weak. It
was said after the close that Ware
k Leland had sold 1,500,000 bush
els of December and May.
Broomhall cables: Wheat Open
ed steady and the market was quiet
and values ft lower and further de
clined during the morning. When
the undertone became heavier this
pressure was in the way of realizing,
prompted by the "disappointing
American cables yesterday, cheaper
commodity offerings and continued
liberal Russian offerings. Septem
ber was unchanged during the morn
ln. At midday the market was
lower. Corn At the opening the
market was quiet and unchanged.
Later values lost in sympathy
with wheat, lower American cables
and poor support.
Still Has Two Legs.
The News learns that Frank Goble-
man, well known In this city as a
sign painter and telegraph operator,
and for some years a resident of this
city, is now !n the hospital at Omaha
and underwent a surgical operation
in which he lost his left limb, it
seems that the limb has been bother
ing him for some time, and that after
leaving here went to Plattsmouth,
and as the trouble grew greater he
was compelled to go to Omaha and
enter a hospital. His many friends
here will regret to learn of his mis
fortune. Nebraska City News.
After the Journal reporter read the
above In the News he proceeded to
visit Frank, and found there was no
truth in the report. We found him
at the headquarters of the M. L. Wil
liams Commission, company, where
he is employed as operator. He says
that while the limb has been giving
him trouble, more, or less, for twenty-five
years; he has never yet con
sented to an amputation, and does
not desire to as long as he can help
It, he says. : ' ' ' '
The Tent Meetings. .
A large crowd greeted Wilhite and
Tuckerrrian in the tent last night.
The interest' In these meetings is
reaching out and growing under the
powerful eloquence of 4' man whose
life is laid upon God's altar for the
souls of men.' Already fifty people
have accepted ChrlBt, with the meet
ings less than two weeks old. This
Is a very remarkable showing for a
city of so much religious Indiffer
ence as Plattsmouth. It is a victory
unparalelled in our religious history.
Tonight Mr. Wilhite will speak on
the subject, "Ten Reasons Why 1
Believe the Bible." The business men
of the city are urged to hear the
great evangelist in this theme. Again
we wish to admonish the people gen
erally that they canont afford to
miss any of these meetings. Three
came forward In response to the in
vltatlon last night.
With the Sick
Mrs. Dan Rice Is Blowly recover
lng from the bruises received in the
runaway last week. Mr. Rice says
that "Denver mud" seems to be the
only remedy that will do her any
good, but that the "mud" is pretty
expensive, as it comes at a dollar
box and one box is required for each
application. Mrs. Rice can now move
one arm so as to help herself slightly
The report from the bedBide of
Will Egenberger this morning was
favorable, and he Is getting along
H. K. Dunbar Is gaining strength
although he Is a long way from being
strong. He was able to take a few
steps yesterday, supported by the
Evil Effects of Strike.
G. G. Baldock and Roy Freed, both
painter from Omaha, were In the city
today looking for work. These men
say that the strike of street car men
is a great drawback to all kinds of
business. Men have to walk five and
six miles to their work and return.
One old gentleman, a carpenter,
walked In from Benson for several
days. Although a non-union man, he
would not ride until finally he go so
worn out that he submitted and took
a car, but apologized to the other
men in his gang on the ground that
he "was all in." A large mapority
of the citizens are in sympathy with
the strikers, and all acts of violence
are chargeable to strike-breakers and
I'p From Kansas City,
R. A. Bates came up from Kansas
City this morning, and will remain a
few days. He Is feeling pretty well,
considering everything, but Is far
from full recovery yet. Mrs. M. A.
remains with Mrs. R. A. Bates during
his absence, and will remain until
after the latter Is operated upon,
which will be a week of ten days.
She feels more encouraged than she
did when she first entered the hos
pital, and the physicians give ber all
the encouragement possible.
Money Conies Slowly.
Major Flemke has Just finished
mailing out 200 letters, appealing for
financial aid for the Gospel Army to
help pay for the church property
lately bought, and has received two
replies. Where are the "ninety and
nine?" The major will hold a street
meeting at the Riley hotel corner
this evening at 7 o'clock.
Justly Refute the Charges of Waning
Members of their Ranks.
Omaha, Sept. 30. About 400
striking street car conductors and
motormen In uniform paraded the
principal business streets yesterday
afternoon. This Is fifty more than
appeared in the parade Sunday, Sep
tember 19, the day after the strike
was called. Today's demonstration
was Intended to refute the claim of
the company's officials that a large
percentage of the strikers have re
turned to work. The company today
refused the request of the governors
of the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben to
agree to submit the dispute with its
carmen to arbitration. The request
was made because of the effect the
strike Is likely to have upon the at
tendance at the fifteenth annual fall
festival of that organization, which
began today and is to continue until
October 9. President Wattles! of the
car company, assured the governors
of the organisation that the street
car service would be ample to handle
all the crowds that msnally attend
the festival. ' .

Don't Walt for Proof. ......
The Weeping Water Republican re
produces with glaring head lines, the
article from the ' State Journal,
wherein certain charges are preferred
against a certain Republican post
master. The many friends of this
Republican postmaster, who have
known him for many years, will not
believe these charges until proof is
made in the proper tribunal. And
It would seem unfair for these two
Republican papers to forestall proof
of the charges against a Republican
official by giving such wide publi
city to gossip before the party has a
hearing before the proper authority.
The Journal, although Democratic
and opposed to this ' office-holder
politically, does not and will not be
lieve such charges to be true until
established by Indisputable evidence.
