The plant of the Woodmen Unseed OH
works, Seventeenth and Nicholas streets,
controlled by the American Linseed com

day morning. The estimated loss Is placed
at $30,000. The origin of the fire Is unknown.
The entire plant was assessed at $S6,0tf), all
of which Is fully insured, making the fire
loss fully covered.
The fire was discovered at 6:15 a. m., soon
after Night Watchman John H. Carroll
made his last round. Flames were first
seen near the southeast corner of the sec
ond floor of the three-story brick building,
which Is used as a cooperage shop on the
third floor and for storage and pressing de
partments on the lower floors. The build
ing also contained the engine and boiler
rooms. The fire broke out In some wood
work surrounding a coal bin and at a point
where a number of electric light wires enter
The cooperage stock accelerated the
flames, which spread with considerable ra
pidity for awhile. A general lire alarm
was turned In and by hard fighting on the
part of the fire department and the absence
of wind the fire was confined to the brick
building, which waa gutted. Had the fire
spread to the south the elevator of the lln
seed oil plant would no doubt have been
caught, as would also the Holmqulst &
Merrlam elevator, a few feet south of the
linseed elevator, both structures being In
the direct path of the fire. The sprinkler
system Installed some years ago In the lln
seed oil plant kept the walls of the Wood
man elevator cooled and was of consider
ble assistance to the fire fighters.

The brick building whtch was damaged
contained a stock valued at about $20,000,
Including the machinery used for pressing
the flax seed. The stock consisted of large
tanks of ltnaeed oil, a quantity of linseed
oil cake and empty oil barrels. This stock
la practically all destroyed.
The damaged building waa valued at
about $20,000, and waa erected In 1886. So
far as the building Is concerned, the base

for Wheat Corn In Good Shape.
WASHINGTON. Aug. 22. The weekly
summary of crop conditions. Issued by
tho weather bureau Js aa follows:
During the week ending August 21, cen
tral and western Texas experienced un
usual beat, while unseasonably cool
weather prevailed In New England and the
northern portion of the middle Atlantic
states; elsewhere the temperature was
favorable. The rainfall was excessive and
injurious In the Dakota and Minnesota
and also in parts of the lake region, south
Atlantic, central gulf states and In Florida.
Rain is badly needed over the greater part
of Texas, In portions of Kansas, generally
throughout the central and southern
Rocky mountain districts, and in Oregon.
Frosts, causing slight damage, occurred
on the I6th, In Montana and Idaho.
The previously reported excellent con
dition of corn continues generally through
out the principal corn producing states
and also In the Atlantic coast and eastern
gulf districts. Windstorms blew down
considerable corn In Nebraska, Missouri,
Arkansas and Ohio. In some counties in
Kansas and generally throughout Texas
the crop Is In need of rain.

of spring wheat on lowlands In the north

grain Is fully ripe, were Interrupted during

GRAIN RATES RISE A LITTLE
Schedules Influenced Upward by Advance
of tbe Eastern Line.
MORE GRAIN WAY GO SOUTH AS RESULT
Wobble In Tariffs Not Exactly Clear,
bnt It la Said Situation Ttaue
Far Haa Hot ifurt
Grain rates have ta&en a slight move
upward by the announcement of the roads
east of Chicago that, effective September
1, rates on domestic grain and grain prod
ucts will be advanced to a basis of 17Vt
cents, Chicago to New York, an advance
from H'-i cents on domestic grain and
from 1R cents on grain products. Export
grain will be advanced from 13 to 15 cents.
Effective September 20, the rate on export
grain products will be advanced, Chicago to
New York, from 14 to 15 cents.
A local grain dealer said the effect of
this probably would be, if conditions re
mained the same, to send more of the
grain than ever to the southern ports.
The cause of the recent wobble In grain
rates Is not exactly known to most, peo
ple, but the fact remains that none of
the developments has any tendency to in
jure the Omaha market In any way. It Is
thought, in some quarters, that the fact
that some of the roads were paying 34
cents elevation waa one of the causes and
the great reduction announced by the
Burlington brought matters to a focus so
that the rates were fixed on the basis an
nounced by the Chicago Great Western.
As one railroad man said:
"The railroads would like to handle the
grain themselves direct from Nebraska
points to the market at Chicago or St.
Louis, but they are forced, by the estab
lishment of grain markets at Omaha and
Kansas City, to recognize these points
and to pay elevation there."
Another railroad man remarked:
"Here Is the natural market for the
grain of this section of the country and
It Is all foolishness for the railroads to
be forced to pay elevation at Chicago or
any other destination."
Forced to Pay Charges.
The railroads are forced to pay these
elevation charges and, aa much aa they
dislike to, they cannot get away from
them. Peavey made a contract some years
ago with the Union Pacific to get 14 cents
rebate on every 100 pounds of grain hauled
over the Union Pacific. The railroad was
willing to pay this to get the cars back
for another haul. The trouble came when
there were points In Nebraska reached by
the Northwestern and Burlington as well
as tha Union Pacific. The Burlington was
forced to have an elevator In Omaha to
compete with the Union Pacific at these
points, but It worked on a different sys
tem. The Burlington road said to a shipper
that If he would send his grain to Omaha
the road would pay the elevation charges,
provided the grain was sent on east or
south over the Burlington. This forced
the elevation charge at the Omaha ter
minal, for If the Illinois Central, for in
stance, wished to haul any grain that was
In the Burlington elevator It had to ad
vance that charge for elevation, and (then
pay another elevation charge at destina
tion. Stock raisers In the west have learned
that it Is cheaper to ship grain to stock
than to ship the stock to the grain, and
this accounts for the large volume of grain
that moved to the west and north during
the month of July.

P. M. Healey made a vigorous protest
against closing F street south of the Great
Northern right-of-way. Doing this he
claimed would leave his wire fence be
tween the Union Pacific and Great North
ern tracks and with no way of getting out,
the former company shutting him off on
the north. The Westbrook-Olbbona Grain
company Is In the same position and also
strongly objected. There waa not so
much opposition to the closing of other
streets, provided the Great Northern would
lay out a stret south of Its right-of-way
from Broad to Main. The council adjourned
about midnight without having taken any
action. Unless some kind of a compromise
Is made with the Westbrook-Olbbona com
pany and Healey there Is likely to be some
litigation over the matter.
