GRAIN DEALERS BP IN ARMS
Anort Propped Bill of Lading Will Pat
, Them Oat of Basinets,
CANNOT D1AW AGAINST GRAIN IN TRANSIT
and Missouri Healers Hare a.
Cession to Discuss Qaestton aad
I Decide on Line of
The uniform bill of lading proposed by
the railroads Is aa great a source of worry
to the grain dealers as It Is to the whole
sale grocers and Jobbers. A special meet
ing of the Southwestern Iowa and North
weatern Missouri Grain Dealers' association
was held In this city yesterday for the pur
pose of dlacuftfffng what action should be
taken to oppose the proposed measure.
About thirty grain dealers were present,
but action was deferred until a meeting to
be called lh a few days at Creston, la., by
President Hunter of the association.
The meeting, as usual, was held behind
closed doors and the members present were
not Inclined to say much except that the
enforcement of the proposed uniform bill of
lading would ot a necessity practically put
most of the grain men out of business.
President Hunter, when asked about the
s.'.uatlon, said: "The great trouble with
the proposed uniform bill of lading Is that
it will not be negotiable and dealers will
not be able, as has been the universal cus
tom heretofore, to draw on a car of corn
or other grain. Our association took the
matter up with the Chicago banks and they
alt stated that they would be unable to ad
vance funds on a uniform bill of lading for
the simple reason such bills of lading will
hve stamped across their face, 'Non ne
gotiable.' The adoption of the proposed
uniform bill of lading will revolutionize the
entire grain business. With the adoption
of the? proposed uniform bill of lading a
grain dealer would have to have a large
capital at his back to continue in the busi
ness. As (t now Is the dealer can attach
his bill of lading to a sight draft and se
cure the money from the bank, but with the
uniform bill of lading this would be impos
sible and the dealer would have his capital
tied up until he could dispose of the grain.
Very' few if any of the dealers In this sec
tion of the country can command sufficient
capital to do this. We grain dealers will
bave to resist the adoption of the proposed
measure by every means in our power or
else quit the business. That Is all there is

Shot yesterday afternoon by Charlea Bor
ne r, residing on First avenue, near Thirty
ninth street, whose wife, it Is charged, was
viciously assaulted by the Ethertons. Emma
Etherton, wlfo Of Dave Etherton; May
Coffin and Maggte Faith, who were with
the . EUit-rXona, -are in the city jail, being
held ' on charges of lewdness. Bonier was
released on his own recognizance.
There are several accounts of the trouble
which led to the shooting, but the police
are inclined to believe that the one told by
Mrs. Bomer is the correct one. Mrs. Bor
ner says that the Ethertons, with a cov
ered ; wagon. In which the three women
were tiding, stopped in front of her house
and made preparations as If to camp In a
field which she and her husband own. She
told them that they could not stop there,
as she owned the land. The whole outfit,
she says, then abused and ended by as
saulting her, the two men knocking her
unconscious with brickbats. '
Bomer," who was working on a house
nearby, came home and la said to have
found his wife lying unconscious In the
weeds near their house. When he had re
vived her she told 'ilm of the assault and
that the people whr had assaulted her had
driven west toward the motor bridge. Se
curing his rifle Bonier hastened in pursuit
and overtook the outfit at the approach to
the bridge when Bomer came ud with
the Ethertons they proceeded to attack him
and attempted to take the rifle from him.
During the struggle the rifle was discharged
and Dave Etherton was shot in the ankle.
Despite his wound ho closed in on Borner
and In the struggle the rifle was again dis
charged, the bullet this time striking Tom
Etherton, who was rendered hors do com

the bridge to Omaha.

was brought back to this city from Emer

as It was proven that the woman left Cof

free will. It developed that Coffln and
the woman were not married, but the two
In order to avoid prosecution decided to
have the ceremony performed, and they
were married at the city Jail. - Shortly
after the marriage the woman again left
Comn and rejoined Etherton, despite the
fact that Etherton already had a wife,
Maggie Faith, the third woman under
arrest, belongs In Fremont, Neb., and the
police records show that a short time ago
a reward was offered for the arrest of
Dave Etherton on the charge of abducting
the girl, who was under age. The police
were informed last evening that this charge
had been withdrawn and that the Fremont
authorities no longer wanted Etherton.
Tom Etherton was arrested tn this city
last winter, charged with assaulting an
old man named Brown, .In the western part
of the city. He served thirty days in the
county Jail for the assault. Dare Ether
ton was charged with complicity in the
assault, but eluded the officers. While the
men are ostensibly horse traders, it is
charged that they travel around the coun
try with the women tn a covered wagon

CHINA MAY SIGN -NO TREATY
Foreign Influence May Re Responsi
ble for Its Position Regarding;
Exclusion of Laborers.
WASHINGTON, July 27. Some doubt Is
expressed In official circles whether It will
be possible to obtain China's consent to an
other treaty with the United States provid
ing for even the exclusion of Chinese .a
borers from this country. The State de
partment Is aware of Ill-feeling throughout
China, on the whole subject and now that
the Immigration treaty with China has been
allowed to lapse without the negotiation of
a new agreement reports have reached here
that China Is Inclined hereafter to refuse
to sign any similar convention. China's
position appears to be that the exclusion
of Chinese cltliens from a friendly country
Is in Itself a disgrace, and while it cannot
Ignore the laws of a foreign power provid
ing ror sucn exclusion. It can refuse to
sanction It or become part of It by conclud
ing a treaty Involving such restrictions.
A year ago, It Is said, It would have been
easy to conduct negotiations with China for
the exclusion- of Chinese laborers only.
Now, however, It Is understood, the Chinese
officials are disposed to regard the signing
of such a treaty beneath the dignity of
their government. The reason for tho as
sumption at Peking of this new attitude Is
not quite clear to the officials here, though
In some circles It Is attributed to -the Influ
ence of foreign powers.

top of her. Mrs. Coleman-Btucknrt and
mother-in-law struck the sharp spiked
fence on the wall, while Mrs. Bragg passed
over to ths walk. While the distance from
the railing to the fence and walk Is not
great the sharp spikes on the fence lent a
serious aspect to the accident.
