Qimtat.Vms for all the products In this Industry are fully main tained, with a tendenrv toward Mill higher jrlces because, of freights and fuel. The first advance Is expected In wire lalls, al though this Is nit officially announced. No new features have, developed In the footwear .situation, prices remaining firm and order books full. Aside from slight reaction In union barks the leather mar ket Is strong, hrmlork sole receiving the additional support of exceptionally high heavy exports In Europe. Domestic hides are dull, prices again declining. Textile mills are busy, with only a hand-to-mojth home demand 'for cotton goods. I.ut export buying for China continues lare. Farm products weakened as visible sup- filles Increased, and reports from the west ndlcatn that much more grain Is offered for shipment than the railroads will ac cent. Exports of corn are steadily gaining. For the week at Atlantic ports 2,336,403 bushels were sent out .compared with only 247,113 bushels the corresponding week a year ago. Atlantic exports of wheat. Including flcur, amounted to only 1,4!X.61 bushels, against 2,705,044 bushels a year ago, and arrivals at Interior cities were 3,773.21) bushels, compared with 3. 73ti, 3tj"9 bushels last year. Wool tends upward, shipments to the mills continuing heavy and Inquiries nu merous, i 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 this fact. 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.

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. Ore., last year and Bsn Francisco rct-oru tho condition of gro'.vlng crops excellent. 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.

Basket Ball Team Easily Victorious. LOSING TEAM COMPLETELY OUTCLASSED "manned Platers on Home Team Have Little Dlltlcnlfy In Krorlna. bat riny I Fast nnil Ilrllllnnt. 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 contest. 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.

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 bottom. 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. GRANTS SOME MORE LICENSES Police Board Will Hear Protests at .

BOARD OF EDUCATION TO BE REDUCED Miss Anna Fltle, Principal of Brans Park School, Dies Knddrnly Live Stock Exchange Die. ensses Situation. 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 month. Sometime next week there will be a gen eral meeting of the charter revision com mittee, when the amendments suggested 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.
