hopefulness continued to pervade the fed
eral headquarters touching the local yellow
fever situation. The Monday list is al
ways larger. It was so during the epidemic
of 1878. That is attributed to the fact that
the work 'of inspection Is not as thorough
Sunday and only the reports which
come from physicians .are to be depended
In today's list of fatalities two deaths
appear as' having occurred in the Marine
hospital. , They were sailors artmutea to
that Institution. Another death was In the
French asylum on St. Anne street, where
a half dozen cases have been reported to
date. ' These are the two public institutions
outside of the hospitals In which cases of
fever havehad to be handled.
Numbers .of merchants were visitors to
Dr. White today. Their object was to ask
his intercession in the matter of an ameli
oration of restrictions placed on freight by
towns like Lake Ponchartraln, which de
sires no intercourse with' New Orleans. Dr.
White had Just returned from Mobile where
he laid fully before the officials the measure
of precautions that have been taken to
prevent the transmission of mosquitoes in
freight cars. The Alabama officials ex
pressed themselves as entirely satisfied with
Dr. White's representations and are Indis
posed to place any restrictions against
freight. Local merchants believe that Dt.
White's Intervention may bring many of
the smaller communities to a recognition of
the harmlessness of receiving merchandise
from Infected points.

holds certificates to the face value of up

did not offer prices sufficiently high The
commissioner thinks he can barter the
paper to better advantage than letting it
go back for appearance again under the
hammer. Moreover he would like to keep
occupied as long as he is drawing salary
from the city for an office which exists
only in name.
The councllmen seemed to view bis plan

HILL'S HAND IN THE FIGHT
Great Northern Maanate-ts Thoua-ht.
to Have III Rye on Ne
braska. The Northwestern has not come In on
the grain rate cut and there Is no new
development in the contest at this end of
James J. Hill's abrupt action in cutting
the rate on the Great Northern, however,
stimulates Interest In the situation and
railroad men believe It may have the ef
fect of accentuating the fight which was
precipitated between his and competing
Missouri river-Chicago lines by Mr. Stick
npy of the Great Western.
While directly. It Is admitted Hlirs cut
has no relation to matters here, Indirectly
It may have a tremendous bearing. Pri
marily the Great Northern magnate Is said
to have made this cut as a stroke at his
ancient enemy, Tom Lowrey of the Soo
I road, in the competition for the grain of
the northwest, but ultimately Hill s purpose
Is believed to be of much deeper signifi
cance. Indeed, the man whose eagle eye
has discerned the wisdom of projecting
his Great Northern into the great Nebraska
grain belt as a means of one day hauling
the grain of this state Into the Duluth
harbor for transport east. Is right now be
lieved to have' In his fertile mind tho
scheme of precipitating rates lower than
his other arch-rival, Stlckney, has yet
dreamed of. The Burlington Is Hill's and
tho Burlington covers Nebraska fairly
Grain has hot started t'o move much as
yet under the 'stimulus of the recent cut
in the rates, as It Is too early for export
in largo quantities, the bulk of the export
grain moving In November and afterwards.
Interesting figures on the movement of
grain for the month of July have been
prepared by the Burlington road which
show that 47 per cent of all grain from
Burlington territory went west and north
toward Billings and Denver. 1
This is for feeders, with which the west
ern country is filled. During the same
period 24 per cent of the grain from Bur
lington territory went to Kansifs City and
the balance was miscellaneous.
During the summer months the elevators
of the south are practically closed and
they do not receive much grain for ex
port. When the season for export shipment
really opens there will bo quite a contest
for the hauling of the bumper crops of
Nebraska, but until that time the grain la
seeking its natural channels for the places
Where it is needed.
Some of the local grain companies con
tinue to hold their wheat until they learn
what the Northwestern is going to do in
the matter of rates to Chicago. If there
Is a rate cutting like that of last summer,
they want to ship their grain under the
lowest tariff. Eighty-three cars of grain
were shipped Saturday and Sunday, most
of it to Chicago, and it is said that there
are about 100 cars to go Tuesday. All this
Is on old sales and no new deals of any con
sequence are being made with -Chicago
until the rate question is settled. Sixty-
five cars of wheat, 143 cars of corn and six
run of oats came to Omaha Sunday. Most
of the wheat will be stored. A latge por
tlon of the corn will have to be shipped to
fill old orders.
LEAGUE' OUT FOR ONE MAN

has stracV a snag.v. One of Its principal
canvassers has unwittingly let out the
Information that all of Its efforts are to
be devoted primarily to accomplishing the
nomination of one man for office. In
spreading their cards and soliciting mem
bership of "the 2,000" this man is said to
have given it out to be distinctly under
stood that the league was first for one
mail, and after that for all It could get.
A man living at Twenty-seventh and Burt
streets was approached by a canvasser
for the "Good Government league" to sign
a card. He asked about the object of the
league with particularity and was told that
a certain discarded city official was to
have the support of the league for a county
office he seeks. The citizen almost unin
tentionally balked, and then the canvasser
tipped it all oft by saying:
"Why, we must pick, our candidates or
we can't do anything."
To further questioning he admitted that
primarily one man's nomination for county
office was the principal object of the league,
but "We want other good men, too."
The voter sought as a member expressed
the thought that the man named was not
strong enough with the genera) voters and
I " n'et by the declaration. "Well, we're
i ""'""B to nominate him, anyway
The canvasser got no signature.
