CATTLE There was quite a llberal,ruri
of cattle reported this morning, but a num
ber of tnem were consigned direct to pack
era, so the actual number on sale was light.
A few bt the trains were late In arriving,
but, considering the heavy rains, there was
not aa much delay aa was anticipated.
Packers were all anxloua for stock this
morning and the buyers started out early
and bought up everything In sight at much
higher prices. The fact that the Kansas
City plants were shut down made packers
very largely dependent upon Omana and
Chicago tor their supplies.
The beef steer market was active and
could safely be quoted lojjl&o higher than
the close of last week. All kinds sold
freely, as there were evidently not enough
cattle In sight to fill packers' orders. In a
great many casea sales were- aiade that
looked fully 20c higher than the same kinds
sold for last week and buyers were calling
the market 164j25o higher. The cattle
changed hands aa rapidly as offered, so all
the early arrivals were soon disposed of.
The cow market was also active and fully
lO&loo higher than laat week. Buyera did
not discriminate against any class, but
bought whatever they could get their hands
on at the advance. The bulk of the ar
rivals was made up of steers and as a re
suit there were not near enough cows to go
around. Cannera and medium grades Joined
in the advance with the good to choice
Bulls, veal calves and stags also aold to
better advantage today In sympathy with
the advance on steers and cows.
The only cattle that did not sell to good
advantage were s'.ockers and feeders.
Speculators were afraid to buy many, aa
not much demand frum the country la
looked for so long as the rain continues.
Very few stock cattle were on sale, but
, the market could best be described by call
ing It alow and a lltf lower. Representa

irtual number on sale was only about nor.

1 he cotton market opened at a decline
of 3 points to an advance ot points. Quo
tations were confined to the old crop op
tions and were the result of realising and
selling for short account, while the new
crop was sustained by the low tempera
ture t.oted In western sections of the belt
and tears that tha floods In the southweat
would work down Into the cotton country.
Following the call trading became slightly
more active under demand for later posi
tions, shorts covering and the south send
ing buying orders, which advanced prices
sharply until a level about 4gl points
above the closing of last Friday had been
attained. Then there waa aome taking of
profits and prices were worked back to
nearly the opening basis. Almost Immedi
ately there was another rally, however,
on the moderate estimates for tomorrow's
receipts at leading points; better accounts
from New England spinning centers and
a slight Improvement in the demand for
exports lor tne day were heavy and al
though the port receipts again greatly ex
ceeded last year's the unfavorable crop
talk proved the dominating factor, prices
being rapidly forced up until a net gain of
4(('J0 points was apparent with September

WILL ASK CHANGE OF VENUE
State Will Seek Trial Elsewhere In
Kentucky's Keod tM order
JACKSON. Ky., June 1 The Incident of
today In which most Interest centered
and which came ns a surprise was the an
nouncement by Commonwealth's Attorney
Byrd at the afternoon session of court
that he would ask tor a chntigo of venue in
the trials of Curtis Jett and Tom White.
Judge Redwlnc Indicated that the change
would be ordered it had been agreed
previously that a special venire would be
summoned from another county and the
prosecutor had announced only last night
that he would not ask a change of venue.
The reason assigned Is the Impossibility
of attorneys for the defense and the prose
cution agreeing on n special bailiff to per
form the duties of sheriff.
Assuming that the resistance of the de
fense to tho change will be of no avail,
the question of first Importance to Jack
son now Is, will the troops be withdrawn?
It Is freely predicted tonight that If this
courtto is adopted the witnesses for the
prosecution must oither flee or If they re
main they must risk assassination.
When the regular term of the circuit
court convened today, with Judge Redwlne
on the bench. Sheriff Callahun and five
deputies were sworn In.
The twenty men summoned for the reg
ular grand Jury were called and only nine
responded. The other placea were filled
by furmera, summoned by Sheriff Calla
han. Judge Redwlne In instructions to the
grand jury said Breathitt county was full
of crime and had few convictions. He spoke
strongly and feelingly for law and order
I have never believed that homicides
should be tried by a Jury from the vicinity
of tho crime, but tt Is the law and that
must be followed. There has been but one
hanging tn the history of Breathitt county
out of the many trials for murder. There
are some cases in this court that I will
not risk with a Breathitt county Jury but
will go outside for Jurors.
Judge Redwlne undoubtedly referred to
the Jett and White cases.
A great commotion was created In the
court room by the accidental discharge of
a rifle of a sentry outside the court house
who wvs loading his gun preparatory to
going on duty. The bullet struck the wall
of the court houso without Injuring any
one. Colonel Williams Immediately ordered
the soldier under arrest.
Curtis Jett and Thomas White were
brought into court today by soldiers and
turned over to Sheriff Callahan for trial.
The attorneys on both aides were present
tn consider the appointment of another

CHOIR BOYS ON A STRIKE
Trinity Cathedral Juveniles Revolt
and Thna Dlatnrb I .or at ladaa
Omaha Is In the throes of another grave
Industrial conflict. The Trinity Cathedral
choir boys have struck. Tho revolution
occurred Sunday night as a result of some
difference on the wage proposition between
the Juvenile songsters and their employer.
F. H. Wright, organist and musical J I
The clash at Trinity came when the gong
sounded for the boys to file into th. Ir
customary places for the Sunday evening
services. Not a lad stirred. Having de
cided to stand or fall together, they kept
their seats and let the older members ot
the choir do the singing for that service
The Juveniles. It seems, had entered Into
a compact not to "work" unless conces
sions were made on the wage proposition
and as no concessions were forthcoming
there was nothing for them to do but
"make good" on their agreement, which
they did despite the appeals of Mr. Wright
and the Intervention of Rector Craig.
As the choir hoys are not members of
Central Labor union or affiliated with the
American Federation of labor or not even
organized Into a local union, some appre
hension Is felt for their ability to with
stand the crdeal of a prclonced struKBle.
Under the circumstances Central Labor
'union Is not at liberty to offer financial
help toward maintaining the strike or even
giving formal moral support, but there Is
some talk of having a representative from
the national federation come to Omaha nntl
organize the choir loys. so that forma!
recognition may be given by other labor
unions lo their case. In the meantime,
however. Influences are at work lo biinir
about a reconciliation between the "con
tending factious." There Is some talk of
trying to lnduc a settlement by means of
arbitration and In this connection It has
been suggested that a member of the Busi
ness Men's association, a Union Pacific
official and two members of Centra! Labor
'cnlon be selected as the board of arbi
tration to grapple with the aggravating
WORK FOR THE COUNTY CLERK
Attorney Cites Law Requiring Him to
File and Coaaterilga '
There Is more work for the county clerk
and an old law which has been honored
In the breach for years is again operative
in Douglas county. The law waa brought to
the attention of Judge Dickinson In flic
trial of a suit In which Mary F. Pollard Is
seeking to enforce a tax lien against J. N
H. Patrick. Attorneys for the plaintiff In
troduced In evidence the tax receipts for
money paid by her aa taxea upon property
which atands In the name of the defendant
The attorney for tho defense immediately
objected to thla evidence, holding that
under the state law it was not competent
to show the receipt of money by the treim
urer. He called attention to section th.
chapter xvil, article i, which provides that
no receipt given by a county treasurer
shall be accepted as evidence of payment
of money to the treasurer unless the re
ceipt be countersigned by the county clerk.
The law provides that the treasurer shall
issue receipts in duplicate, both being given
to the person paying the money; that the
payer ahall then take both receipts to the
county clerk, who ahall place one on Ala
In hla office and countersign the other. -
There Is no record that this law haa ever
been observed in Douglas county, but under
the terms of the statute all tax lien casta
must be baaed upon countersigned receipts.
It Is said at the office of the county clerk
that tf this law is to be observed it will
require one man's constant time counter
signing receipts and filing the duplicates,
and that provision must be made for the
preservation of the duplicates.
