condition. Early oats are rlpealng and
the harvest has begun in southeastern
counties The heads are well tilled, but
the stand thin and the straw short. Late
oats promise a better crop. Considerable
hay was damaged by rain. The wild or
prairie hay crop will be heavy, especially

Rodney B. Swift, a Stockholder, Files a
Bill for an Aoconntinr.
Complaint Alleges that Company Ac
cepted Illegal Rebates from
Railroads Amoantlasr to
Five Mlllloaa.
CHICAGO, July 11. Another attack was
made this afternoon upon the Interna
tional Harvester company by Rodney B.
Swift, formerly head of the experimental
department of the McCormlck branch of
the harvester company. Swift's connec
tion with the company was severed several
months ago and suit commenced against
him by the officials of the company, who
alleged that he-had defrauded them In the
sale of a patent In his bill died this after
noon. Swift, aa a stockholder, demands an
accounting from the company and demands
that the court force the company to cease
taking rebates from railroad companies
and also compel the company to return to
the railroads moneys, said by Swift to have
been Illegally exacted from the railroads
In the past Swift declares that up to
September 30, 1902, the McCormlck branch
of the harvester company alone forced the
railroads to pay It through rebates and
the operation of the Illinois Northern road
a sum In excess of 33,000,000. t'p to the
same date, the money received in rebates
by the Piano branch of the harvester
company through the agency of the Chi
cago, West Pullman Southern railroad
amounted to 3500,000.
Since September 30, 19"i2, it Is declared
that nine other railroad companies have
been making payments of rebates to the
International Harvear company under
the guise of an alleged division of freight
rates with the Illinois Northern company.
Swift asserts that the alleged illegal re
bates made to the International company

other sources It Is ascertained, however,

Eight thousand four hundred and twenty
Ave dollars must bo subscribed to the build
ing fund of the Young Men's Christian as
sociation each day this week In order to
reach the 3100.000 mark set at the beginning
pf the campaign and to secure the 310.000
conditional subscription of Guy C. Barton.
The sum of 312100 wss yet to secure after
35.9 had been pledged Monday.
The Nebraska Telephone company and
the Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Railway
company Tuesday put their shoulders to
the wheel and pushed the fund ahead to
the tune of 31,000 each.
This sort of strong co-operation on the
part of the big corporations stimulates the
hopes and efforts of the men soliciting the
money and Increases the belief that when
Saturday night rolls around the J100.OO
will be complete.
The Merchants' National bank Monday
afternoon gave 3500.
Wedncsdny ought to be high day, say tho
hustlers, 'and they are planning to work
early and late and bring In at least 312.000.
If that can be done, they feel the absolute
success of the campaign is assured.
Monday evening a "women's" fund for
the new building was started, when a well
known woman came to a member of one
of the committees soliciting funds and put
her name down for a goodly sum.
Care for Her Boys.
"I have boys,' 'she said, and I have much
Interest In the erection of the new build
ing. Not that my boys will be directly in
terested in'lt; they may not. But whether
they become members of the association or
not, all boys are Interested In each other,
and I should prefer to have my boys as
sociate with those over whom the associa
tion Influence is extended. I want to do
my Bhare for the association and I hope
that thefund I am starting will grow Into
considerable proportions before the end of
the week."
The Incident led to a decision to keep a
separate subscription list for women. At
the end of the week they "Will be given
credit for the amount of money they have
given, just as various-business groups of
men will be' given credit.
A stranger came to the association build
ing Monday night and asked lp do snown
through. After he had seen the place he
pulled out en old tobacco pouch from his
pocket and, taking a dollar from it. handed
it to one of the assistant secretaries, with
the remark:
"I'm a farmer from South Dakota. This
new building you're going to put up Is a
good thing and I want you to take this
dollar for It."
Monday the young men's committee
turned in $1.60. H. A. Stone's committee
is In the lead with 32.6X9 and F. I. Erion s
committee Is second with 32,370.
Progress Is Delnit Made, Says Her, on
Omaha-Lincoln Intraurban
Electric Road.
Peter E. Her says:
"Grading has been completed and ties
are being laid for the lnterurban road ten
miles out of Lincoln. Ralls have been
(hipped and are on the way. I have
positive assurance that a gang of men
will be set to work between here and
Sarpy -City within a month. This is to
follow out the plan of working from both
termini to a central point. Conditions gen
erally regarding the road are satisfactory
and before long I look to see the rate of
construction greatly accelerated."
