The rainfall was confined to light,

rapidly, the dry weather of the week
being especially favorable for this
character of work: threshing fiom
shock Is now well 'advanced ' and
threshing from stack has begun. In
some central counties some grain still
In shock Is sprouting. A large eiop of
wild or prairie hay Is being seemed
In the northern and western parts of
tho tlate. '
While corn has matured somewhat
slowly In enslern counties ahd nerds
warmer weather, still It has inndo a
substantial advance and condltlonsuro,

western counties corn hns matured
rapidly and somo early planted In,
southern and western counties Is now
beyond danger of Injury by frost.
Harly corn Is denting. The corn, ei op
promises to Im excellent if not in

of good weather without severe frost
is ncqdeif toj mature a considerable
portion, of the com crdp. while some
late fields need moie than a month.
Plowing is well udwiiU'ed, with the
ground In excellent condition. Sowing
of winter wheat Is generally begln-
'nlng nutl will bo pushed lapldly In the
next two weeks.
Potntots are u short crop In most

McPlke. manager of tho cigar depart-,

nrd of tho supremo court on a writ of
habeas corpus, charged with having,
exposed for salo and sold two boxs orj
cigars containing advertising mutter
in which tho ting appeared.
Counsel for McPlko held the law
unconstitutional. Any question in
volving tho uso of tho American flag,
either for advertising or other pur
poses, he held, was tolcly within the
purview of congress, us It was a mat
ter of federal and not stato sovereign
ty. Justice lllanchard parolod McPlko
until Friday, when ho will enter a;
pro forma order dismissing the writ,'
thus upholding the constitutionality ot

K. D. Schcble of Toledo. O., a den

bury & Kills, of Detroit. Mich., lettur
box manufacturers.
Reavers, Machen nnd Erwln nre
named Jointly In one Indictment for
conspiracy to defraud the United
States. Another Indictment Is agaltust
McGcihnn, Huntington nnd Mnchen for
conspiracy to defraud tho United
States nnd still another is against tho
same three for conspiracy to commit
bribery, both under section 5440. II. S.
Schnbcl nud Mnchen nre indicted Joint
ly for conspiracy against the . United
States and ngaln for conspiracy to
commit bribery.
Another indictment Is agnlnst Mc
Gclhan and Huntington for bribery,
and the last Is ngalnst Machen- plngly
for accepting bribes under section
5301, revised stntutcs. All tho Indict
ments aro based on transactions relat
ing to the supply of letter boxes and
paekago boxes ami devices. Somo sen
sational chnrges are made. Tho, In
dictment against Reavers, Machen anil
Krwlti' alleges that the Postal Device
and Improvement company of San
Francjsco, formerly the Montague In
dicator and Ixittor Rox company, was
composed almost entirely of western
postal employes: that In1 1900 It sent
postal employes; that In 1900 It Bet
aside 1,000 shares of stock for "for
warding its Interests" and that armed
with this authority Its president. Dan
iel S. Richardson and Inspector Erwln
camo to Washington, saw Heavers,
Muchcn, Heath and others and got an
order for equipping 2.0S9 letter boxes
with their device.
The indictment says the company
was systematically relieved of its obli
gations in tho way of paying freight,
crating, painting and printing cards
for tho devices It was furnishing. Tho
indictment charges that Reavers and
Machen1 owned stock under nssumed
names. Most of the thousand shares
of stock set aside, the indictment says,
went to different postofllco oflteials,
and again President Richardson came
to Washington, and following an in
crease In the contract price ho got
for the company, dividends wero paid
on the stock.
McGclhan, principal owner of the
Columbia Supply company of New
Yorlc. Is ennrged with agreeing to pay
Machen 50 cents for each dollar and
a quarter paid on the paekago box
contract by tho government. Specific
payments to Machen aro cited In consideration-
or increased compensation
and under tho package box contract,
ostensibly for attaching a different
support to tho boxes.
