I C.M.Wilson's
Market Letter.
Stockyards , Kansas City , Mo. ,
July 30 , 1900. Last week's cattle
supply footed up 57,000 head , in
cluding 9500 calves , the first
week to exceed ilfty thousand
cattle this secson. Prices declin
ed 15 to 30 cents during the week
on steers , cows 5 to 15 cents lower
veals 50 cents oil' , stackers and
feeders gelling very menu , espec
ially the medium and common
grades. Run to day is 11,000
bend , which is several thousand
less than last Monday , and the
supply of 3000 quarantines to-day
is only half as great ns last Mon
day. Other points are heavily
supplied to-day , however , and the
market here is steady on good
steere and stoekers and feeders ,
other cattle weak at 10 lower , ex
cept calves , which are a shade
stronger. Yearlings sold at $5.80
to-day , and 13 loads of fed west
erns brought $5.80 , which figure
is the top price to-day. The top
last week was $6.20 , and the same
cattle would sell nearly as high
to-day , being very choice. Heif
ers and yearlings mixed sold at
! r5.SO recently , and prime heifers
straight at $5.50 , It is the grades
just below the top that have suf
fered most , half fed steers at
$ -1.75 to $5.40 , grass steers $3.90
to1.15 , good heifers $3.75 to
$4.75 , grass cows $2 50 to $3.50 ,
canners draggy , at $1.50 to $2.25.
bulls $2.25 to $3.75. The stocker
and feeders trade has been a dis
appointment far this season , both
in the small receipts of that class
of cattle , and in the demand for
them. Good 1050 to 1200 pound
feeders are about the only ones
much wanted , at1.00 to S-l.GO.
while common to fair stock Battle
eell at $2.00 to $3.00 , fair to good
etockers and feeders at $3.00 to
$3.85. Late rains have made
pastures good , and have almost
assured the corn crop , yet buyers
are holding off. Trade in this
line is finer to-day , however , but
a good many bargians were se
cured last week.
Hogs made a small net loss last
week , after daily fluctuations both
ways. Packers have to-day ad
vanced the selling price of fresh
pork to butchers , as if they anticipated -
pated ad advance in the live cost ,
and expected moderate receipts of
hogs. The market is 5 to 10 lower -
er to-day , under the influence of
an excessive supply at Chicago ,
top here $0.55 , bulk of sales $0.40
to $0.50. Run was liberal last
week , at 49,000 , supply 7000 to-
day. Weights below 200 pounds
brings the ton , average weights of
all the hogs sold here in July thia
year was 201 pounds.
Mutton prices grew u little
stronger last week , as the big de
cline recently cut down the sup
ply nearly half last week , total
run 17,000 head receipts 5000 today -
day , market steady. SPr'nkr
lambs bring $7.00 to $7.50 , yenr-
lings $5.00 to $5.75 , wethers $4.75
to $5.25 , ewes $4.00 tu $5.00 ,
stock and feeding sheep in good
demand at $4.25 to $5.00 , a few
choice breeding ewes considering
above the prices , no goats last
week. Receipts are likely to be
heavy in August and September
and small improvements in prices
can be expected.

"We are a restless people , "
says the editor of a Kansas ex
change , "Every thin woman
longs to be fat. Every fat wo
man wants to grow thin. Every
town man longs for -the time
when he can retire in the quiet
of the country , and every farmer
hopes to some day quit work and
move to town , where he can take
life easy. Country newspaper
men would like to try their hand
on a city daily. The fellows on
the big dailies dream of a time
when they can own a paper of
their own. In youth we long for
maturity , in age we yearn for the
happy days of childhood.
There is no excuse for it other
than that we seem to be built
that way. The grass seems to

Lancaster will Bolt Pollard.
Kroiu the Lincoln Star
111 local political circles the Pollard salary affair continues to
be the nil-absorbing topic of conversation. The congressman has
his friends and his assailants , those who might be expected to take
advantage of this opportunity for attacking him being numbered
among the former , and the latter including many of those who
were most enthusiastically in favor of an endorsement for him 03 *
the Lancaster republican convention. Mr. Pollard's very first
official act , that of accepting pay for four months when he was not
an office-holder , is likely to prove his undoing , for the sentiment
against him is strong and defeat for him in the convention at Auburn ,
when he will seek a re-nomination , is declared more than probable.
Lancaster county will be the center of interest for the entire
district during the next few days , for there is strong talk to the
effect that some of the delegates from this county will not "stand
hitched" now that the salary sensation has become so prominent ,
and that other delegates who have been friends of the congressman
up to this time will not go to the convention at all. Among the
latter is O. W. Webster , who has informed Pollard that he will not
attend the convention.
Some of the members of the Lancaster delegation will insist
upon holding a meeting before the Auburn convention. At this
meeting the emphatic statement will be made that the delegation
will have fulfilled its obligation and obeyed instructions if it votes
for Pollard on the first ballot , while others will go so far as to
insist that , the salary question having arisen since the Lancaster
convention was held , the delegation is under no obligation to vote
for him at all. There are several delegates who are halting
between two opinions , and a few of them , it can be said on abso
lutely good authority , are ready to bolt , right from the beginning ,
the candidate for whom they are instructed. From present indica
tions there is bound to be a revolt in the Lancaster delegation , and
if there is Pollard will be defeated , for he needs both Lancaster
and Cass in order to win , and must have some more.
Pollard now has , in the delegations from Cass , his home county ,
and Lancaster , 82 pledged votes. These are instructed for him ,
and even if every man stands firmly for him he will be short the
required number. It was expected up to a few days ago that he
would have no difficulty in finding , in the other five counties of
the district , five men who would vote for him even if he bad to
depend upon postmasters who would be reasonably sure to attend
the convention as delegates. But it is said that the postmaster
end of it will be well taken care of and that where a postmaster
in either one of the five counties is known to be for Pollard to an
unchangeable degree , the opposition will see that he is left at home.
Plans have been well laid for keeping Pollard's appointees out of
the convention.
Furthermore , when the opposition to Pollard has become so
strong that the postmasters themselves see the direction of the
wind , they , not caring to offend the man who may be in Congress
man Pollard's place , will take little part in any stubborn effort to
secure his nomination. Postmasters , like others , like to be in the
band-wagon and when they see that Jessen , or any other candidate ,
is liable to defeat the one who is in office , they will pass a good
portion of the time with their cars to the ground for the purpose of
ascertaining just exactly "what is what" politically.
There arc three factions in Lancaster county right now and
the Pollard affair has made them. One supports precedent , which
says that Pollard did only what many others had done in accepting
inane } ' for time not served. Another suggests inviting Pollard to
come to Lincoln in order that he mav explain. From the third
faction , comprising many of Mr. Pollard's most enthusiastic sup
porters in the Lancaster convention , comes the assurance that a
resolution calling upon Pollard to resign , not as a candidate but as
a congressman , will be presented at the meeting of the county's
delegation. Plans for that meeting have not been perfected , but it
is almost sure to be held. A leader seems to be the enl } ' thing
needed to start a very healthy revolt.
Some of the delegates declare that if this resolution is voted
down by the delegation , it will be the duty of the minority to de
mand a poll and then register against Pollard at the Auburn con
vention. Any other course , they argue , would stultify the leaders
of the reform movement in Lancaster county.
"It is certainly disheartening , " said a delegate last night ,
"when politicians see the leaders of reform so thrifty in gathering
in rebates , once as an official and again for their assistants. " The
latter statement was brought out by the charge that is now being
circulated , to the effect that Pollard drew $400 from the govern
ment for his private secretary , when the private secretary spent
much of his time at a business college. It is further charged that
a member of Pollard's family acted as secretary. This story has
not been substantiated , but it is a sample of the gossip that has
been flying in Lancaster for the last few dayh. It is also alleged
that in the campaign statement some of the postmasters were not
credited with the amounts they really gave , and that the relatives
of Pollard gave $1,809.15 , which is $51.95 les than was drawn by
Pollard for the four months when he was not a congressman elect.
I think it would be political death for any delegates to vote for
Pollard at Auburn unless the accusations are cleared away. I
mean this statement to appl } ' to Lancaster county. Cass county
endorsed the candidate after the salary story had been given to
the public. "
In the case of Congressman Kinkaid , who served out the unex-
pired term of Congressman Greenci it is stated that he did not take
back pay. It has also been asserted , by the opponents of Pollard ,
that the late Senator Hayward refused back pay. But against
these cases are cited others where back pay was accepted , and so
frequently that it became a congressional custom to pay for full matter whether full service was given or not. But in the
Pollard case it is declared that those others were not reformers.
On this salary proposition the count ) ' delegates have not been
heard from to any great extent , although a few expressions unfav
orable to Pollard have been reported.
A number of Lancaster delegates are very friendly to Judge
Jessen , and they would be glad to have a chance to vote for him.
These are chafing under the instructions , and some go so far as to
say that Pollard should release them from their instructions. If
this should be done there would be a re-alignment , with the chances
strongly favoring Jessen.
Meanwhile interest in state affairs , so far as this corner of
Nebraska is concerned , is overshadowed by the Pollard case. It
will continue to be the absorbing topic until the day for the con
gressional convention , which will be held at Auburn August 9. In
that convention there will be no proxies. This statement is made
by J. B. Strode , a good friend to Pollard. The delegates already
named will have to stand up to the rack. They will either be for
him or against him , and this means the anxious seat for many.

Advises Pollard to Rob a Bank.
Ex-Mayor Weir of Lincoln ,
one of the leading republicans of
Lancaster county doesn't take
much stock in "precedent as is
imluated by the following letter
which appeared in Sunday's
State Journal :
To the Editor of The Journal :
There is otic point in the Pollard
salary claim that has not been
considered as yet. Why do the
treasury officials pay a claim in
connection with which there is no
possible warrant in law ?
Usually these gentlemen are
very particular. A claimant haste
to show , by umiuetitioiied proof ,
that he is entitled to the amount
claimed and , practically , what he
wants to do with the money , and
yet in such cases as the one un
der consideration , the } ' pay over
the money without a question.
The claimant was in no sense a
congressman during the period
for which the salary was paid.
He was not even elected to the
From Mr. Pollard's standpoint
there is still less reason for the
payment. The only justification
set up is that of "Precedent. " If
this affords sufficient justification
why not rob a bank ? There is
ample "precedent" for such
nction. The entire issue is an
unfortunate one for all concerned
and ought to result in changed
conditions in reference to this
question in the future.

Thomas , Famous Leader , Began at
the Top In His Education and
Always Stayed There.
The accepted way of teaching
people to understand music is to
begin at the bottom , says Charles
E. Itussell , in Reader Magazine.
Tlay simple airs to-day , and perhaps -
haps to-inorrow , or next year , or
some other time , you can play
something a little better. You
must lead the people by slow de
grees and as if by the hand from
fathomless depths of ignorance.
The first thing Mr. Thomas did
was to trample upon this senile
sophistication , fie would have
none of it. He was a musical dem
ocrat ; J think he had a feeling
that the theory of beginning at
the bottom was the rotten fruit
age of the idea that some men are
specially gifted to feel and to un
derstand , and the rest , poor
things , are inferior , and the gifted
truly must be very patient with
them and show them the way to
the simplest apprehension. Few
men have had a better under
standing of their fellows , and ht >
probably knew well enough that
the difference between mind and
mind is usually infinitesimal. He
tolerated none of this "beginning
at the bottom. " He began at the
top. With the highest and most
complicated forms of music he
started upon his career , and
through years on years of good
and evil fortune , through trial
and failure , boundless trouble and
incessant toil , through intelligent
praise and fierce stonns of denun
ciation , he never for an instant
lowered his standard nor aban
doned his faith.
