-Sargent Leader.
The following clipping from
the Omaha Bee indicates that
Senator Burkett is taking an
active part in the discussion of
the tariff legislation in Congress :
"Persistent hammering on the
part of the progressive senators
brought an admission from Sen
ator Aldrich that the schedule
relating to window glass ought
to be re-constructed , and at the
end of Senator Burkett's speech
the schedule was passed over for
purposes of revision. Senator
Burkett , without mincing his
words , showed that manufactur
ers were selling glass at less than
the Dingley tariff ; that if a man ,
was given his "window glass in
Europe h6 could not afford to
pay the tariff on it and bring it
to this country ; that thcrelore
there was no necessity for such
high duty as carried in the Al
drich bill , Senator Aldrich ad
mitted that the schedule was too
high. It was the first admission
of that kind by the Rhode Island
Senator. It is now expected
that he will make a number of
other concessions before the bill
goes to conference. "
Practice What You Preach.
The Beacon for last week con
tains the following pointed para
graph :
"Now , Herbert , if you believe
in 'honest , straightforward jour
nalism , ' come out and admit the
truth of what these men say.
Admit that when the party ( the
Republican party ) promised a
a revision of the tariff downward
they were seeking success under
false pretenses. "
Just what the Republican con
gress now in session will , jjo
towards the revision of the tar
iff cannot be determined at this
time. We must await their
final action on the bill.
But , Brother Beal , when you
speak of keeping party pledge *
and ask a Hepublican editor to
look lifter the affairs in his own
party , why don't you practice
what you preach ? Perhaps you
will recall that the last Demo
cratic platform contained the
following plank :
"We demand the immediate
repeal of the tariff on wood pulp
print paper , lumber , timber am
logs , and that thsse articles be
placed on the free list. "
Why , Brother Heal , don't yet
get after the thirty-eight Demo
crats who voted in the House o
Representatives for a protective
tariff on lumber in defiance o
of the Democratic platform dec
laration for free lumber ? Wh }
don't you get after the twenty
three Democrats who votct
against the modification of th
house rules and to sustain
Speaker Cannon and his organi
Cation ? Better not have too
much to say about the Republi
cans , Charles , until you clean up
your own party a little.
Stock Market Report.
1 South Omaha , May 12 , ' 09
Cattle- :
Receipts this week have been
moderate. Monday's and Tues
day's trade was quite a repetition
of the market during the closing
days of last week , the packers
holding off at the start , but later
on falling over each other for
supplies. Today , with Chicago
lightly supplied , and a very
broad outlet our market was 10
to 15 cents higher , this advance
shows up on both steers and
butcher stock , the latter class
being in especially good request.
A small supply of feeders has
come on the market this week. .
At these high prices the country
inquiry has been , very narrow ,
with the result that trading in
this department 'is rather slow.
We quote- : Good to choice beeves
6 10 to i6.85 ; fair to good $6.10
to $6.35 ; common to fair $5.10
to S6.UO. Good to choice fed stock
$5.50 to $6.10 ; fair to good cows
$4.60 to $5 35 ; Cauners and cut
ters S2.60 to S.4.35. Veal calves
$3.60 to $6.85. Bulls , stags $3.35
to $5.35. Choice to prime feed
ers $5.00 to $5 60 ; good to choice
$4.40 to 4 90 ; fair to good 4.00
to 4.40 ; common to fair 3.00 to
4 00. Stock heifers 3 25 to 4.40
Hogs- :
Hogs have changed little in
the last two da > s. Today we
had more heavy hogs than for
some time past and these sold
readily to both local and outside
uycrs. $7.30 was the top today
nd the bulk of the sales being
nade from 6.80 to 7 15 , values
hat are anywhere from strong
o 5 cents higher than those on
Sheep- :
Trading in this department
las been on the sensational
order for sometime past and-
values have gone above all pre
vious records. Wooled lambs
lave sold as high as 9.35 with
shorn lambs up to 8.20. Even
at these high prices trading has
icen very active. Of course ,
receipts have been very light and
here is no possibility of getting
an over supply now before the
grass sheep begin to come. To-
lay the market is not as brisk
and salesmen claim prices were
any wkere from slow to 10 cents
ower. This is the first backset
that the market has had for
sometime , but it was expected.
The quotations given below are
for shorn stock , wooled grades
sell from SLOO to 1.25 above
these fierures. Good to choice
lambs 7.85''to 8.30 ; fair to good
7.00 to 7.85. Good to choice
ight yearlings 6.35 to 6.85.
Good to choice ewes 5.75 to 6.25
fair to good 5.25 to 5.75. Good to
choice wooled lambs 8.85 to 9.35 ;
fair to good 8.15 to 8.85.

ceptable. Last Thursday quite
a storm visited these parts.
Fierce for a time and quite a
little hail fell , but the rain
ceased falling too soon to giveTis
much moisture ,
A terrible misfortune befell
Walter Cole on Friday evening ,
May 14 , which all sincerely hopp
will not prove fatal. He and his
sister , Olive , had started out for
a horse back ride. Walter was
riding a very fractious animal ,
and when they were part way
down the drive way his horse
reared upon his hind legs , and
Walter , seeing the forthcoming
danger , got off , but rather fell in
a heap and before he could move
the horse fell back upon him and
poor Walter suffered the disloca
tion of his back. His sister , who
being frightened , began to
scream , which brought assistance
from the houso. Walter was car
ried in a blanket to the house
and Drs. Penningtou and Mul-
lins were there in a very short
time to set the broken bone , but
it was Monday morning before
the suffering boy could rest easy.
On Tuesday he was put in a
plaster paris jacket and left same
night for St. Joe. He was ac
companied by his father and Dr.
Pennington , This is sad indeed.
Walter is an energetic young
man , who is a friend to everyone
and the accident is to be deplor
ed very much. The doctor is
very much pleased with his
progress so far ,
