NO UNNATURAL SHRINKAGE PER
CEIVED DURING THE WEEK.
Will Have Floats.
The executive committee of the Busi
ness Men's association of Omaha held a
meeting and transacted a large amount
of routine business. Word has been
received from a large number of coun
ties which will have floats in the Ne
braska parade, but still a number of
enterprising cities and counties have
not j'et sent in word of any kind. The
Omaha business Men's association has
made arrangements with the railroads
to transport the floats free of cost, and
is anxious for every county through its
principal city to be represented in the
parade. Every effort will be made to
make the parade the biggest advertise
ment ever given of the whole state of
Nebraska. William Lyle Dickey, sec
retary of the association, will answer
all letters on the subject addressed to
him, and the association will assist in
every was possioie any city wnicn ae-
sires to send a float.

Much attention is being attracted to
windmill irrigation in this portion of
the Lodge Pole valley, says a Dix dis
patch, by the remarkable discovery
made in the irrigation well of Hon.
John Clausen. This well is 18x20 feet,
and twenty-four feet deep. In the bot
tom a hole was broken through a crust
of hard pan, through which a stream
of water rises with great velocity. A
nine-inch pump running continuously
n a high wind fails to lower the sup
ply. A colony of well-to-do families is
now formine in eastern Nebraska to
come to this place in the fall and settle
on forty-acre irrigated farms.
New York, July 27. It. Q. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade says: It
is not the season for the tide of busi
ness to rise, but there is not perceived
scarcely any shrinkage except that
which will come naturally with mid
summer heat. The volume of new
business is small compared with reeent
months, but large enough to encour
age more openings of long closed
works, and more advances in returns
to labor. Important strikes show that
the advance is not enough for some,
but the strikers seem not more threat
ening than a week ago.
Accounts of shrinkage in the yield
of wheat come from both Pacific states
and from the Dakotas. It would be a
strange and unnatural July without
such reports, and yet they have weight
enough this year to lead even the most
experienced to reduce somewhat their
estimate of yield, while the price has
advanced three and one-fourth cents.
Light Western receipts for the week
were not a third of last year's, and for
four weeks only 5,365,063 bushels,
against 11,963,619 bushels last year,
strengthen adverse reports, because
the price a year ago was about 20
cents lower than it is now. The West
ern movement largely depends on the
export demand, which is phenomin
ally light, Atlantic shipments for
the week having been flour in
cluded only 671,561 bushels, against
3,81 8, y96 last year, and for four weeks
only 3,500,589, against 9,663,722 last
year. Corn advanced 1 cent with
wheat, but has since lost all of the
gain. Cotton has remained unchanged
at 7 cents, although the latest reports
favor larger estimates of the yield, a
circular by Neill going much be-ond
Textiles have a better outlook with
larger demand, both for cotton and
woolen goods; c, shade advance in print
cloths, and in met bleached goods,
and a more hopeful market for light
weight woolens, which, if scarcely ad
vanced beyond last year's prices, are
on the whole selling better. Enor
mous sales of wool, 44, 783, 864 pounds in
four weeks,far exceed actual consump
tion, but reflect belief that the
prices will not decline, and the few
changes this week have been upward.
Scarcity of domestic wool in Eastern
markets is in part due to heavy specu

CHEROKEE BILL AGAIN.
fie Kill a Watchman in the Federal
Prison at Fort Smith.
Fort Smith, Ark., July 29. Chero
kee Bill got his hands on another re
voiver yesteraay, and used it in an
attempt to liberate prisoners confined
in murderers' row of the United
States jail. His attempt was a bold
one and resulted in the death of Larry
Keating, the oldest guard on the force.

side of the cells, and McConnell,

THE WALLER CASE
Ambassador Fastis Makes a Second De
mand to See the Fx-Kantan.
.Vashingtox, July 29. The officials
of the state department are at present
anxiously awaiting information from
Ambassador Eustis as to the manner
in which the second demand for
the record of the Waller court
martial, which was held in
Tamative, has been received in France.
It is now learned definitely that the
French government refused to furnish
the record upon the first presentation
of the request, and that this refusal
was met on the part of the state
department by a more positive
and pressing demand for all the pa
pers. The department is informed by
Mr. Eustis tfrat this- demand has been
presented. There has been quite a
sufficient time for a reply, but none
had been received. The course of the
French in their refusal to supply the
record is considered most unusual, and
as no explanation was vouchsafed the
department is at a loss to know upon
what grounds it was based. -
There is good reason for believing
that in case of a second refusal by
France to supply the record, a third de
mand will be made more peremptory.
The state department authorities con
sider the case as one of importance be
cause it is liable to develop some very
delicate and intricate questions before
it shall finally be disposed of.
ONE JUROR CHOSEN.
Darrant's Trial for M order Promises
lie a Hard Legal Fight.
San Francisco, July i'9. On the
fourth day of the trial of Theodore
Durrant for the murder of Blanche
Lamont, the work of choosing a jury
began in earnest. Slow progress was
made. Of fifteen examined, only one
was passed and he may be challenged
by the defense later on. The main
question of the prosecution to jurors is
would you convict a man and inflict
the death penalty on circumstantial
The defendant's questions are based
upon the familiarity with the news
paper comments upon Durrant and the
crime of which he is accused. Almost
all the jurors summoned have formed
impressions which will require strong
evidence to relieve. It is apparent the
defense will make a hard tight on tech
nicalities and will take advantage of
every loophole. Counsel for the pris
oner lay traps for the judge, with the
apparent purpose of leading him into a
wrong ruling, which may form the
basis of an appeal to a higher couit.
The number of well dressed women at
the trial increases at every session of
the court. Continual efforts are made
by girls to lionize the defendant.
GREAT STORM IN JAPAN.

Philadelphia, Pa., July 29. A vio

The cablegram was sent from

Helen Rickmers and the Norwegian
steamships Lyderhorn and Herman

DEFENSE FOR WALLER.
Ex-Consul's American Counsel Makes
Out a Strong Case.
Washington', July 25. Mr. Cram
mond Kennedy, who has become the.
principal counsel in the case of ex
Consul Waller, now serving a sentence
in a French jail for violation of neu
trality laws between this country and
France, called at the state department
yesterday for the purpose of present
ing certain phases of the case.
Mr. Kennedy is disposed to lay much
stress on the fact that at the time of
Waller's arrest, there was no actual
state of war between France and Mad
agascar. He contends that Waller,
for this reason, could not have been
guilty of the charge on which he was
tried and convicted. In conversation
with a representative of the press he
said this phase of the case had not yet
been presented by this government,
and as soon as Mr. Olney should re
turn he would present the matter tr
him in this light.
PAPERS FOR FARMERS

Washington, July 25. Hereafter the
agricultural department will cafl-. on

the office, to make investigations of
importance to agricultural interests
and to prepare brief papers or articles
embracing the results of the work.
These will be paid for at rates which
the department regards as reasonable,
the funds being provided for in the
congressional appropriations. Many
persons well known here and abroad
will be asked to contribute. Its object
is to do away with labored articles.
