LINCOLN. All. 25. (Rpeclal.) Deposl-
tloni of C T. Ism, a former bookkeeper
for the Nebraska Elevator company, and
R. K. Joiinson, a former grain dealer of
Valparalao, were taken by Attorney Gen
eraf Brown today In th grain case
It wai brought out In the deposition
that the price to be pnld the farmera for
grain waa fixed by a committee from the
membership of the Nebraaka Grain Deal
era' association and that those entering
Into the. agreement to maintain a unform
price had to deposit a forfeit to stand
back of the agreement; that differences
between' the elevator, wen belonging to
the aaaoclatlon were settled by an arbi
tration committee and that when one
dealer secured more grain than he was
entitled to under the agreements he had
to pay his competitors either In money or
grain a share of the profit. One settlement
made by Johnson with the Omaha Elevator
company he testified waa made on a 2-H
basis. That la he had to pay the elevator
company 3 cents a bushel for the excess
of corn h bough; i cents for the excess
of oats and 4 cents for the excess of
wheat, making Ms forfeiture more than
the profit he made on the grain.
Johnson testified that he had made an
agreement with elevator men In his town
to maintain uniform prices long before
the grain association was organized and
though the profit he made after the asso
ciation began to send out the prices was
not excessive. It was "much more regular."
Bewscher'of the Oraln Dealers' asso-
?latlon, Johnson testified, had nothing to
lo with making the agreement.
Long's testimony was more about the
fixing of prices for the South Tlatte coun
try by ' representatives of the Nebraska
Elevator company of Lincoln and the
Central Granaries company, which was

Reasonable Profit oa Grain.
Under cross-examination by Mr. Ken
nedy, Johnson said his1 dealings with the
Omaha Elevator company Bad been with
Mr. Jaqulth and to him he had given the
1100 check, which waa deposited with
liewscher. Attorney Smith brought out ot
him that he had made agreements with
other dealers in his home town before the
association was organised. Mr. Hall
elicited the information that the profits
made under the card system were not
excessive, but were fair. Johnson testi
fied that a fair profit would be 2 cents on
corn, and from I In 1 cents on wheat. This
ould be the price he would sell grain
for over what he paid for It. Out of the
profit would have to come his expenses.
Prices Fixed In Lincoln.
C. T. Long of Lincoln, who was book
keeper for the Nebraska Elevator company
during the time Tom Worrall was presi
dent of the company, was the only witness
examined at the morning session. Mr.
Long said he had worked for the company
from December 8, 19J0, until July SI. 1M.
In answer to question Mr. Long said as
bookkeeper he kept track of the grain
bought at the various stations In this dis
trict and received reports and made re
port to agents of the company at . the
various stations in the district and also
received reports from competitors In this
district. The Nebraska Elevator company
and the Central Granaries company, he
aid. made the price for the district each
afternoon and mailed card out to the
agent of the compante a well a to the
competitor In thl district. The cards
were not ent out unless the marKei
changed. The prices were made in tne
afternoon after the receipt of price from
Kansas City. Then representative of the
companies would meet In the office at Lin
coln In secret conference and agree upon
price. Frequently there were grievances
to ettle and thl wa done by talking
with the varlou partle at out over the
telephone. Should one dealer buy more
grain than another at competitive points it
was up to the purchaser of the larger
amount to make good by lowering his
price the next day so the other dealer
would have his inning. Bhould ne ran to
do that he would have to settle by the
payment of a portion of the profits maue
on the larger deal. The Nebraska Ele
vator company, he said. had frequently
sent out check to competitor and had

that he operated one elevator at Valparalao
ind the Nebraska Elevator company
mother. At that time the Omaha Elevator
rompany put up an elevator, and then the
trouble began. After some months the
Omaha Elevator company claimed It was
not getting Its share of the grain and that
unless Johnson would agree to maintain
uniform price that company would Jump
In with a higher price and run him out of
business. Representatives of the three
companies then met and signed a contract Trust company of Omaha has been
to make a report to each other every week,
to divide the grain equally and to main
tain uniform prices. To bind the agree
ment each deposited a check for $100 with
Secretary Bewscher and the contract was
carried out to the letter, each receiving
every day from the price fixing committee
the price to be paid for grain the next day.
-Forced to Pay Forfeit.
The witness said at that time he was
getting the bulk of the grain and on one
or two occasions he had to pay money to
the Omaha Elevator company. He told of
one settlement he made with that company
In which he paid It 117 In cash, besides for
faiting his IKiO check and 2.300 bushels of
grain. This latter was the excess of grain
he had handled.
The witness then told there waa a tacit
understanding that no member of the as
sociation was to buy grain from an Irregu
lar dealer. Irregular dealers he described
as farmers who sold their own grain and
loaded It Into the cars themselves.
The second year Johnson refused to di
vide' the grain bought, though he main
tained the uniform prices seat out from
Omaha. He refused, he said, because the
contract was for only one year, while the
Omaha Elevator company Interpreted It to
After he sold out Johnson testified he
contemplated buying some grain from hi
old customers, but he could not sell It,
as members of the association objected so
strf'iuously. Johnson testified that he had
talked with all of the defendants and by
them had been told of the good results
that would be brought about by the as

eight years Seward county's eeneral fund
warrants are being registered for lack of
funds. This Is owing partly to the failure

the county board has this year made a
heavier levy than before, the total county
levy being 9H mills, as compared to B1 last
year. The levy for the court house fund
Is 2'-4 mills, which makes the levy for all
