Hard to Secure Machinery in Which Steel
Formi Largs Part.
Wmr Jobbers' DmlofM 4 nrtslled

mand for Prodnct of
Alt has not been as bright as an un
clouded day with the Omaha wholesale Ira
plement dealer this spring, although the
business secured 1y the traveling repre-
entatires baa been larger than any pre
vious year. The trouble with the local
bours has not been to secure orders, but
to find the goods with which to fill the
demands of the retail dealers In the ter
ritory. Existing conditions are really seri
ous, and managers of houses who find a
demand for farming Implements la excess
of any which has been seen since the first
house was opened west of the Missouri
river,-, have figuratively 'torn their hair
when they discovered that much of that
demand will have to go unsupplled because
of the Impossibility of securing the goods
desired. ..
Spring trade of the western Jobbers con
sists principally of plows, harrows and cul
tivators, machinery In which steel and
Iron forms the major part. Steel mills
which supplv this demand, ever since the
strike of last year, have been from three
months to six months behind with their
orders, and while many of the implement
factories have standing order with the
mills, the demand for plowa and kindred
tools has been so large that the regular
supply la not sufficient to fill the orders
received from the Jobbers. Managers of
steel rull la are the most Independent of
men at this time and when they have filled
their standing orders, turn their attention
to the supply of the transient orders, on
which, often, a premium Is paid, and regu
lar customers are forced to be pleased if
they can secure the full amount specified
In the contract without wasting time try
ing to obtain extra quantities.
Implement Factories Handicapped.
Such condition has resulted In the Im
plement factories running at normal rate
of output, when the demand for goods Is
in excess of the usual quantities. In con
sequence Jobbers have found themselves un
able to fill orders, and the volume of busi
ness has been reduced to a point where It
xceeda by little If any the volume of last
year, which, however, was heavier than
any previous year.
When the condition first developed In
February, at the time the filling of advance
orders began, the dealers followed the
usual practice of filling part of each or
der received, and placing on the "back
orders" the remainder of the Implements
called for. As the trade opened up It was
found that It would be utterly Impossible
to fill these back orders, and the majority
of tbem were cancelled. Retail dealers
were forced Into other markets, where they
found the same condition to exist, and It
la said that in the states of Iowa snd Ne
braska, a thousand farmers are compelled
to use worn out machinery because It Is
impossible to secure new ones.
Fortunately the spring trade Is not the
heaviest of the year, the value of the plows,
harrows and cultivators being much less
than the value of the machinery sold later
in ths season, which consists of reapers,
mowers, threshing machines and similar Im
plements used In the harvest. Local Job-

this class of Implements is much better
than the prospect In the planting machinery
line, and that as a result they expect to
have a better trade this year than that of
1901, which late In the season fell off on
account of the drouth.
Loss of Last Year I'nknown.
Probably no accurate estimate will ever
be made of the loss to the Implement deal
ers caused by the dry weather of last year.
One house alone reported In September the
cancellation of orders for vehicles aggre
gating (50.000, and other houses reported
lasses In business In proportion. The en
forced reduction of business last fall, found
its corresponding Inflation this spring when,
after reduction In the size of the crop had
been somewhat compensated for In ths
higher prices of grain and live stock, which
has prevailed slnoa that time, the farmers
were In a posltioa to warrant the purchase
of supplies which, they had decided not to
buy In the fall. Much of the advantage
which would havo normally been secured
by increaaad demand has been lost by rea
son of ths impossibility of securing ma
chinery, and it begins to look. In the lan
guage of the manager of one of the whole
sale houses, "aa though the condition of the
iron and ateel market was going to confirm
the loss temporarily caused by the dry
weather of last year."

Rathbone flays All He Wants is a Fair
Trial Before Inlnflnenoed
HAVANA, April 20. Estes O. Rathbone
was brought before the supreme court this
afternoon on a writ of habeaa corpus. His
counsel bald the Audlencla court had ac
cepted the bond offered by a fidelity com
pany for Rathhone's appearance, but had
Imposed ths unusual condition that ths bond
be made a public deed, drawn before a
notary, causing unnecessary delay and ex
pense. Senor Nuno, a notary testified that It
would require a week to get the deed
through and to arrange the amount of the
state tax upon it. The court remained In
aesslon until 10:30 tonight, adjourning at
that time until tomorrow.
Rathbone says he will resist a movement
for his pardon either on the part of the
United States or the Cuban government.
He says all he wants Is that the supreme
court shell grant his sppeal for a new
trial, and that that trial bo held before an
uninfluenced court.

Writes (hat He Will Close Road
Throaah His Property If Old
Agreement Is Sot Betfer
The garbage question was brought forci
bly to the sttentlon of the city authorities
yesterday by a letter from Herman
Kountze, who owns a greater portion of
the land fronting on the river from Gibson
to a point near Q street.
Mr. Kountze writes to Mayor Koutsky:
"About a )ear ago I made arrangements
with the city of South Omaha by which I
permitted It to locate a road across some
of the land controlled by me between the
railroad tracks and the river. This road
was opened only on the condition that
the city erect a suitable fence. A condi
tion was made that no garbage or dead
animals be dumped on the river front, but
that all such matter should be carried to
the stresm and dumped Into It. I am
Informed that the city Is paying no atten
tion to the agreement, and If not carried
out I will enforce it by fencing that part
of the territory over which no road to the
city was granted. This will shut the city
off from access to the river."
Mr. Kountze asks the mayor to advise
him what will be dono In the matter. A
city official who Is conversant with affairs
says that it Is true that the dumping of
garbage has been going on and that it
should be stopped. The big sandbar which
the pontoon bridge company took so much
pains to protect has been washed away
and now the refuse dumped is a nuisance
to those who reside In the neighborhood.
Even should Mr. Kountze decide to close
his road to the river, the city has means
of getting there. It can open U street
with little or no cost, or If desired, Q street
could be opened. It is probsble that the
U street route will be used after this.
While the route Is a little out of the way.
It Is deemed better for the city to use its
own streets snd not be continually making
arrangements for an open road to the river.
Court Decides Contest.
In the recount of the ballots cast for
councllmen In th Fourth ward Judge Vln
eonhaler has decided that O'Connor has the
most votes. This defeats Mclntyre, repub
lican, and makes the council democratic. It
Is understood that on Monday night the
council will meet and a president snd pres
ident pro tern, will be elected. By the Issu
ing of a certificate of election to O'Connor
the deadlock will be broken and the chances
are that Queenan will be chosen president
and Welsh president pro tern. As soon as
the organization Is completed the mayor and
council can proceed with business.

CHICAGO, April 20 The necessity of ex

banquet of the Bankers' club, which wm
held tonight at the Auditorium hotel. The
chief speakers of the evening were: Presi
dent M. E. Ingalls of the Big Four rail
road. Robert Lowery of Atlanta and Frank
O. Lowden of Chicago.
The principal address of the evening was
delivered by Mr. Ingalls and his views
found earnest support among his hearers.
Mr. Ingalls said:
Tioth parties In this country have noti
fied th:s world that they will uphold the
Monroe doctrine: that Is. that no foreign
power shall be allowed to Require terrl. ry
on the American continent; mid we lire
prepared to maintain this. While foreign
countries have aci-epted this political hncl
arbitrary notice they have been Insidiously
and actively engaged In cultivating nml
commercially annexing the Went India
islands anil the South American stntes by
sending out their merchents, their manu
facturers and their bankers, by luinlng
money, by promoting enterprises ami by
long credits.
The very first thing to do to promote
commerce and trade with the West India
islands and the South American states Is
to build a system of transportation and
communication between our country ami
these several ports and cities. Trade al
ways follows facility and cheann-s of
communication. If our country today. In
stead of spending millions of dollars on
subsidies for American ships, which are to
be used to compete with the fnst ships on
the North Atlantic and wtth the profitless
trade of Europe, would allow the postmas
ter general to spend whatever sum was
necessary In carrying the mulls, at least
once a week, between the t'nlted States
and the principal ports of the West India
Islands and the South American states He
should soon rind our commerce Increasing
and bankers establishing agencies for fur
nishing exchange and credit.
You cannot bring about a change of con
ditions by saying we are the greatest peo
ple on earth; that we have more railroads;
that we have the biggest trusts and that
we are the people. These things do not
count when you get down into South
America among the l.atln races. You
have got to show them that it is easier
and cheaper to visit the United States than
ingianu; tnat their freight can be shipped
with greater dispatch and at a cheaper
rate, and, above all, you must show them
that there Is money enough In the country
and machinery for using It, to furnlRh.
them long credits upon good security and
ii a gooa rate or interest.
If we would make this nation as rich
and powerful as It ought to be we must
adopt some of the plans that were out
lined by Blaine In his day, were emphasized
by Mckinley In his last message; we must
adopt a system of reciprocity bv which we
can Increase trade. A tariff wall against
the labor of Europe and Its competition
may be necessary. It certainly Is consid
ered so by a large number of our peonle,
but the same wall that protects us upon
that side is our ruin upon the other and
we must cultivate the West Indies, the
South American states and the Islands of
the Paclilc by reciprocal arrangements and
relations which promotp our commerce. We
must admit their products free. In con
sideration of their purchasing from us, and
If this Is done we have not ships enough
upon the ocean to carry the commerce be
tween those countries and our own, and
there Is not money enouph In the banks to
furnish the credit and exchange.
