Bradstreet's tomorrow under the heading
of "Canuda" will say:
Canada this week completed from a busi
ness point of view the most successful
year In Its history. For the last five years
, the Dominion has been experiencing what
has been called the growing time. The
truth of this has found ample proof In the
great expansion that has taken place In
manufacturing, mercantile and financial
circles, as well as In the agricultural sec
tions of the country. There was a great
tncreane In the wealth of the country dur
ing the last year. Various tlguies an,i
statements now In course of preparation
for the calendar year Just ended, but which
are still Incomplete, unmistakably prove
generally prosperous and the outlook tn the
cry a:ods traife is bright.
There Is little new In the Iron trades.
Merchant furn-iceg are sold shead from six
to eight months, but the Independent Iron
men say that high raw materials and low
priced finished products leave little or no
margin tor profit.
Nearly all lines of trade show gains for
IHol at New York, the majority ranging
from 5 to M per cent. The most important
feature In the eastern dry goods market
this week Is the Increased buying for ex
port to l hlna of brown cottons, by which
nil floating supplies of this commodity have
been cleaned op snd the mills have secured
orders ahead. The rest of the market Is
steady, with, on the whole, cautious buy
ing. Woolen goods retain their good condi
tions snd raw and manufactured materials
have closed the week at the highest prices,
with machinery well employed.
Kastern shoe manufacturers bare still
something to do to fill winter orders and
already some are being Importuned for
prompter delivery. The leather traues are
quiet, with some selling at cut prices of old
or undesirable grades reported from Hcs
tcn. Aside fom this prices are firmly held,
and there la even some talk of further ad
vances in sole leather.
Wheat, including flour, exports for the

BRADKTHEKT'S REVIEW OF WEEK,
Holidays Limit Business, bnt Do Xot
Destroy Confidence In Conditions.
NEW YORK, Jan. 2. Bradstreet's tomor
row will say:
Holiday observance and stock-taking
limit new buflness, but do not decrease
satisfaction and confidence. Wholesale dis
tribution has been down to a minimum,
while retail buying, although satisfactory,
teela reaction from previous activity. Addi
tional returns as to 1W2 trade confirm
earlier estimates of increases in nearly nil
lines of distribution and Industry. Aside
from this developments are scarce. Per
haps the most notable features are the
strength of prices of staples, as the year
opens and the hopefulness as to the out
look for next spring and summer's trade.
One unfavorable feature Is the continued
shortage of anthracite coal In the eust.
Reports of Increased trade In I'J'Bi over
19ul continue to come from nearly all north
ern, eastern, southwestern and PlcIHu
coast points. Examples of this are given
In the cuss of Kansas City, which despite
the corn shortage of lust year and the win
ter wheat shortage of this year shows a
net kaln in all trade over 19ul. The same
report Comes from St. I.ouls. Chicago re
ports Jobbers having more orders on their
books than In previous years; that 3,00u,0oJ
tons of pig Iron was made or handled In
that district during the year and that Chl
eago banks hold 8 per cent more of de
posits, while loans are 14.5 per cent more
than at the beglnninc of 1H02. The outlook
for 1902 on the Pacific coast was almost
unanimously favorable. The largest busi
ness ever done was transacted at Portland.

At New Orleans the outlook la classed as
fairly good, but Montgomery reports 19U2
not as satisfactory as l'jul, owing to the
short cotton yield. Atlanta reports that

bat riny I Fast nnil
Outclassed from the start, the basket ball
leam of the Lincoln Young Men's Chris
tian association was defeated by the local
team In the association gymnaslu-n here
last night by the overwhelming score of
34 to 12. The visiting quintet waa not
nearly so strong as the one which repre
sented the Capital City association last
winter, and, oppostd as they were to the
strong veteran Omahans, the strangers
never had a lookln from the first whistle to
the last. The l.lncolnltes were younger,
weaker, slower ond lets experienced than
the seasoned locals, but they played a
hearty game from the start, never faltering
in the face of certain defeat.
A late train delayed the visitors In their
arrival somewhat, so that they did not got
into their togs' till long after 8 o'clock an 1
the big gamo did not commence till 9. As
a preliminary meanwhile the second team
of the local association played the High
school team a game of two flftecn-mlnute
halves, with a flve-mlnute intermission.
The second team won by 18 to 9 In a snappy
When the big card of the evening was
finally called a large crowd of spectators
was gathered In the end seals on the gym
nasium floor and in the gallery above. En
thusiasm was rampant as the opening
whistle sounded, but it (lid not take three
minutes to expose the discrepancy in the
teams and the result was never In doubt
after the first ten minutes of play.
I'lny Win Fust nnil Fierce.
Six points in each 1; 3 1 f was all the vis
itors could score. Meanwhile the localg
rolled up thirteen the first half, playing
carefully. In the second half they let go a
little, knowing they were safe, and added
twenty-one more. Although the play, was
fierce at times. It was well controlled by
the officials, and there were no Injuries.
Every man lasted clear through and the
condition of the plnye.s seemed excellent.
At the end of the ten-minute Intermission
they were fresh and strong as ever and
finished the match in good wind and form.
"Uncle Qus" Miller, captain of the local
team, was a prime favorite with the crowd
and he, with Jardine, the other forward,
and Hanson, the center, threw four field
goals each. The most remarkable one
thrown were accomplished one each by th"
two guards, the Wlllard boys, who landed
the ball In the basket from positions and
distances that seemed well-nigh impossible.
Captain Hammlll of the Lincoln team
succeeded In making two field goals, but
no other member of h's team found tha
basket for two points. Meanwhile Miller
was very weak on landing goals from the
foul line, he scoring on only four of six
teen trials. Hagcnsick did better, making
eight points in this way out of-sixteen
trials. The summary:

OLD S0LDIER0N LEASING
Takes Derided tan4 Aaalnst the
Cattlemen's Hen of the
OMAHA, Jan. 2. To the Editor of The
Bee: While I understand there Is a grand
jury of the I'nlted States In session In
the federal building (having a recess for
a few days at present) which It Is gen
erally understood is taking evidence '.n
these alleged fraudulent homestead entries
by certain negroes and soldiers' widows,
also the cattlemen's fencing in of gorern
jnent lands, with a view to say whether
In Its judgment infringements of the law
have bren made, and If so bring In "true
bills" of indictment against them, the very
Interested parties the fence builders have
not had the patience to wait and see what
the grand Jury had to say on the subject,
but are doing everything possible to make
the world believe they are being very
much maligned, and that In compelling
them to pull down their fences, fencing in
largo tracts of land which do not belong
to them, a very unjust thing will be done.
I guess the bulk of us know their little
game. The gentlemen of the grand Jury,
you may rest assured, read the newspapers,
and are not likely to skip anything bearing
on the question. The proper thing to have
done would have been to have waited for
the grand Jury's verdict without any at
tempt from the outside to bias Its Judg
ment either one way or the other. I would
have preferred this, but I don't see why,
now that the public ia being treated in
my Judgment to some extent a one-sided
view of the position It should not also
have a view from another side.
From newspaper reporta and otherwise
It is well known the grand Jury has, with
the assistance of the district attorney,
called for evidence from the cattlemen, the
soldiers' widows, the local land officials.
Colonel Mosby and Mr. Lesser (the apeclal
and ex-speclal land office agents from
Washington), and I think the public In
terest Is safe n the hands of the twenty
three good men and true forming the grand
Jury, which Is probing the matter to the
I will not attempt to go Into the wholo
thing from the beginning to where it la
now, although much tempted to have my
views brought out as well as others, but
will content myself with simply referring
very shortly to one or two things. An at
tempt has been made to throw discredit on
Colonel Mosby, but without harm to him, I
guess. He Is the accredited servant of the
government and It Is well understood held
In high esteem for his sterling honesty, In
tegrity and fearlessness, and It Is well
known his reports are held In high respect
by such men as the president and others
who will "hew to the line, let the chips fall
where they may." He knows what he la
about, and these men referred to know tho
lay of things perhaps as well as he does.
It Is well known Colonel Mosby would pre
fer that Instead of congress being asked to
carry through an act to lease these grass
lands In large stretches miles and miles In
length and breadth for the benefit of the
cattle kings to have a measure making It
lawful to allow homesteaders to acquire a
certain number of sections to a moderate
amount and thus enable men of small capi
tal to establish homes In the state and
strengthen not only the state in which they
live, but the whole nation. The extent of
land for each homestead could be easily
fixed by surveys made by competent men
with reference '.to, quality of land, water
supply,-etc. The scarcity of water is much
exaggerated, and for a purpose, besides a
great deal of this grazing land will ulti
mately become Irrigated land and be more
valuable than much - of that nov looked
upon as being our best agricultural land.
This progression Is owing cn all over the
world. To carry out what the cattlemen
want In the way of leases Is to hinder tho
growth of the country both In wealth and
population, and should be strenuously op
posed. One other point: In your last Sunday's
lrsue you represent C. J. Greene, tho cat
tlemen's agent, as saying: "There are laws
governing the entry of land by the w'dows
and orphans of aoldicrs. Aa we understand
tho laws they give these parties the right
to make entries and to secure patenta with
out the entryman residing upon the lands
entered acd that from the time they make
entry until they come to make final proof
they have the right to deal with the land
as they see fit." He further says: "Tho
department places another construction
upon the law." I am not surprised the
department docsl The wonder to me U
that any man of any Intclllcence would
construe the law as he does. Tho law
reads as plain as day that a soldi -r must
go on his homestead the same as any other
homesteader, but is allowed to count of
from the time of settlement ths time In the
service, but never moro than four years,
making It compulsory that he must live on
the land one year previous to proving up.
It does allow his widow. If he has never
settled on the land previous to his de
cease, the right to prove up without ever
living on tha land a wUe provision in
such a case, for seeing they had never
gone onto the land previous to his decease.
It might prove a hardship for her to go on
then to make It hers. The law makes no
provision, however, for a soldier's widow
whose husband had not filed for a home
stead to file In her own name and never
reside on the land, but the very opposite.
It Bays she cau file and under the same
conditions that her deceased husband was
under bad he filed for a homestead. If Mr.
Greene can show me the law where It
reads aa he says It does, he would very
much oblige, AN OLD SOLDIER.

Live Stock Exchange Die.
It was reported on the streets last night
that a number of the members of the char
ter revision committee favored the election
of twelve councllmen. Th! would In
crease the number from one representative
from each ward to two. When the question
of expense Is brought up It Is stated that
the salaries now paid. $50 a month to each
member, could be reduced to one-half that
amount and thus maintain twelve members
Instead of six.
Those who favor an Increase In the num
ber of councllmen assert that the opinion
of a dozen men is better than that of six
and that more work can be performed and
better satisfaction given by having two
representatives from each of the wards.
On the other hand, some of those who
favor an Increase in the number of coun
cllmen met last night and talked over
school board matters. These same men fa
vored a reduction in the number of mem
bers of the Board of Education. An amend
ment to the present lsws Is to be sug
gested, so it was stated last night, that
the number of members of the Board of
Education be reduced to seven and that the
secretary of the board be an outsider. The
Idea Is to have a secretary who will devoto
all of his time to the duties of tha office.
At present the secretary Is a member of
the board and receives a salary of )50 a
Sometime next week there will be a gen
eral meeting of the charter revision com

will be resd and voted on. It w'.ll then
be up to these who desire a change In the
existing laws to provide ways and means
for sending a committee to Lincoln to
properly present the matter to the legis
lature. Death of Miss Anna Fltle.
