Mr. Folk argued to the contrary and was
followed by Mr. Lebmaon for the defense.
The court overruled the demurrer, to which

The defense then filed a special plea In
abatement to the Indictment, requiring, ac

Treasurer Wilaon said to a representative
of the Associated Press thst there Is no

Concerning the Platform.
The arrival of former Senator Hill, Chair
man Frank Campbell of ths state committee.
William Suiter, Senator McCaren and other
leaders today gave rise to a discussion of
the probable and proposed planks In the
piatrorm to ne adopted by tbe democratic
It Is learned that a tentative platform has
been agreed upon, but it Is said that some
of its planks are causing much discussion.
William Hepburn Russell, Jacob Cantor,
there Is discussion of It.' Those who two
years ago were Insistent upon ad Indorse
ment of the Kansas City-Chicago plank are
equally so now. Mr. Sulzer, Norman E.
Mack and others who represented for years
Mr. Bryan's interests here sre Insisting
that the plank shall be outspoken, but the
other side of the controversy, led by Sena
tor Hill, Is uiglng that as the so-called
"liberal democracy" of the state has al
ready filed a certificate of nomination of an
Independent state ticket on a free sliver
platform, this convention should declare for
the gold standard.
The only certainties In the list for nom
inees this morning were John Cuneen of
Erie for attorney general and Judge John
C. Gray for the court of appeals. It was
believed last night that Edwin Atwater of
PoughkeepBte was slated for the co'mptrol-
lorshlp, but today a vlgorou fight, is being
made for the place by friends ot Mr. Finch
of Glens Falls. Mr. Atwater, who la a
wealthy banker., has been the nominee of
tbe party two successive times and also has
contributed largely to campaign expenses
and his friends believe he should have the

ing the republics party, should be ao care
fully constructed as not to pledge tbe demo
cratic party to policies,' if elected, it could
not carry out without danger to corpora
tions and individuals.
So far the platform contains these planks:
Canals A pledge for general Improve

ble moment by bonding the state, avoiding
direct taxation by abrogating the section of
the constitution that limits the state's
Trusts Advocating federal Interference

are not tnly astounding, but horrifying.
They say that a complete investigation will

most every time anyone was burled In tho
"We pretty nearly cleaned that place
out," he said. "I don't believe that we have

All live In Indianapolis. When the ne
groes were brought into court all weakened
and confesed that they were members of
an organized gang of ghouls.
Mount Jackson, a cemetery Just across
the river west of the city, has been left
practically empty by the grave robbers.
"Rufus" was the password at the med
ical college, and when It waa uttered by
tbe returning ghouls the doors of the
college would always be opened without
questioning. The statement that Crown
Hill, one of tbe best kept cemeteries In
the United States, has probably been In

Indignation. One of the ghouls said It
usually took about twenty-five minutes to
rob a grave.
The law in Indiana Is very Btrlct and
provides for effective punishment of ghouls
by long Imprisonment.
TARDY RELIEF DISTRIBUTION
Snfferrrs on Island of St. Vincent Com
plain Bitterly of Methods
KINGSTOWN. Island of St. Vincent, Sat
urday, Sept. 27. Widespread dissatisfac
tion prevails here In connection with the
relief work on this islabd. A portion of
tbe food, clothing and other supplies con
tributed "by' the United States government
tor the assistance of sufferers from tbe
eruptions has been sold under its value by
the local government to merchanta abroad,
the distribution of rations has been slopped,
and a state ot seal-starvation prevails
among soms ot the sufferers.
An Inadequate pittance ot 25 cents weekly
per adult Is given to some of the people,
and some buts have been erected for the
homeless, but they only measure 8x8 ft.
Owing to the destruction ot many ot the
estates a majority of the laborers are out
of employment, snd the government of
ficials have been dilatory In allotlng land
for thera to cultivate. The bulk of tbe
sufferers, whose properties have been de
vastated, are reduced to a state of poverty
and have not yet been relieved. They are
experiencing great privation, while over
$200,000 of the relief fund is still at the dis
posal of the government. Representations
on the ground of maladministration of the
relief funds, etc., bsve been made to the
colonial secretary, Mr. Chamberlain, who
has commissioned A. M. Asbmore, tbe gov
ernment secretary at Demerara to proceed
to St. Vincent in connection with the re
lief work early In October, and it is rum

NEW RECORD FOR CORN CROP
f rsieat Year Beats the Former Tap Tignr
bj Two Hundred Million Bushels.
SUPPLY ALMOST ENOUGH FOR TWO YEARS
Large nrplas for Kspnrt and AIimi an

WASHINGTON. Sept. 2!. Experts of Ihe
Department of Agriculture ave been busy
making calculations npou the inMIOon to
the wealth of the nation that Is to be aided
by the harvesting of the corn crop of th
present year. There is no longer any (lun
ger from frost. Tho work of gathering thi
early crop has been commenced In some
sections, and the estimates on the year's
production can now be made almost to the
bushel. These estimates show thst the
record In the hit-tory of cereal production"
Is about to be broken. Figures are avail
able now to show the crop for the present
year will exceed 2,:.n0.nno,nn0 bushels,
enough to supply the needs of the orld for
this year and next even should there be a
total crop failure In 1903.
In 1900 the United 8tates raised 2 000.000.
000 bushels of com; In l'.tOl, l..";00.000.000
bushels. In 1898 the crop was near to the
present bumper yield, making 2.285.000.000
bushels. Last year, because of the scare Uy,
corn sold at excessive prices. In Kansas
the farmets obtained 90 cents a bushel for
the crop. The average price was 60 cents.
The whole crop sold for $29,553,768. In 1S99.
when the crop was twice as large, the
price obtained by the farmers was $629,210,
110. The value of the corn crops last year
aas $10 an acre, while In 1896, the greatest
eorn year prior to this one, $6 was the aver
age price obtained by the farmers. In 1889
corn sold in some parts of the United States
for 10 cents a bushel, the lowest price ever
Valoe of Ksporta.
The corn crops of the United States are
worth from $600,000,000 to $900,000,000 every
year. The exports average from $175,000,
000 to $200,000,000 annually, or one-tenth of
the yield. Only 25 per cent of the corn
raised Is exported from the states where It
Is grown. Some states never raise enough
corn to supply the home needs. Tbe middle
west states are the principal corn produc
ers. Illinois Is tbe principal exporter.
Figures of the Agricultural department on
the corn crop and its result and wealth are
bewllderlngly large. One of the corn ex
perts today made the following statement:
"While we raise more wheat than any
other people In the world, we produce five
times as much corn as wreat. We raise
three bushels of corn for every bushel of
oats. Our corn crop Is about four-fifths of
the world's crop. Indeed, this cereal Is
practically our own, since many countries
Argentina, Mexico, Egypt nnd the Balkan
states miiBt unite their harvests to make
up the Infinitesimal total which is not pro
duced within our national boundaries. Its
value is our own discovery. The soil and
climate conspire to make the Mississippi
basin a rich field for Its growth. Iowa, Kan
sas, Nebraska and Illinois can each be de
pended upon to produce more than 200,000.
000 bushels per annum In prosperous years,
and other states in this belt are not far
behind In the work of running up the coun
try's grest total.
"If wc have an immense crop of corn we
shall be assured of a large export trade.
By diligently advertising this grain we have
at last aucceeded In creating a market for
It in Europe, when we have it to spare, at
a fair price. In the government's fiscal
year 1900 we exported 209,000.000 bushels of
corn and In 1901 about 177,000,000. The trade
then reached a value of more than $80,000,
000 annually. Last year we could aend
abroad only 26,000,000 bushels, of an esti
mated worth or $16,000,000. The large crop
means more cattle and hogs, and cheaper
beef, bacon and all kinds of meat products.
It will invigorate the carrying trade on
tbe railroads and on ocean freight lines, and
will in a variety of ways contribute to the
Industrial prosperity of the country.
