OMAHA, Sept. 11, 190S.
The feature of the market mas the break
In corn. It opened a trine higher than
Saturday's close, hut Boon fell off. Sep
tember at the lowest point was 2c below
Saturday, liecember was down 'v-'- Sep
tember closed at 62o, old September at 62V,
December at 44'o, old December at 46c.
and May at 46Sc.
Wheat was weaker. A rally at the last
left liecember. only a split lower. Larger
receipts and dally additions to the visibly
supply are beginning to worry the owners
of wheat. Although the flour trade at
Minneapolis is expected to bo more than
moderate, there Is no indication of it yet
and the wheat pouring Into the northwest
markets will have to rind an outlet or de
cline and effect prices at other market.
Minneapolis had 776 cars todav. Heavy
movement of the Canadian crop and limited
storage room causes Canadian wheat to
sell abroad for what the market offers.
This makes a poor propect for the export
of American wheat at present prices.
September closed at MSc, December at
84'c and May at W4j'i8tc.

Advancing Tended fYnlaef Developed
Last Week Continue.
MONEY MARKET CONTINUES EASIER
New York F.sehanae Rise to Par at
Chicago, Indicating- a Lesaea.

NEW YORK, Sent. 18. The advancing
tendency of prices which held through last
week was continued In today'e stock mar
ket The movement did not persist In full
vigor throuKhout the day as It was Inter
rupted by occasional halts and re-actlons,
but there was no actual reversal of the
course of prices.
The dny was without special Incident,
but advices fmm all quarters were corro
borative of the extraordinary prosperity
prevailing in all parts of the country and
in alt lines of business. The money mar
ket continued to work closer, but In so
grsdual'a way as to causa little actual
disturbance of rates and as to offer no ef
fective obstacle to the operation of the fao
tors of strength In the general situation.
Immediate conditions In the money mar
ket showed some relaxation, however, to
day. The sub-treasury's withdrawal from
the market was less than In the correspond
ing period of last week and New York
exchange at Chicago rose to par, Indicating
the lessened demand upon New York from
the Interior. At the same time sterling
exchange fell away to a lower level and
local banking houses were In active nego
tiation to secure In the open market In
London some part of the Incoming supplies
of gold. These negotiations were r L s"'--
cessful as the arrival of gold from Inn
was reserved against India currency. The
price of gold was marked up In the London
market and discounts there and In Berlin
hardened an additional fraction. The Ixm
don market Is looking forward to further
rise in the Hank of England rate and specu
lative operations there were consequently
restrained. At one time during the day It
was definitely reported at the Stock ex
change that more gold had been secured In
London for shipment for New York. The
momentary strengthening effect on stocks
necessarily gave place to some reselling
when tre rumor was found to be Incorrect.
The unbridled manner of the first spurt
In Reading had a disturbing effect on specu
lation. The movement In Canadian Pacllla
was regarded as coming from the same
sources as that In Reading. Its sympa
thetic effect on Its subsidiary stock. Min
neapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste Marie was
aided by the latter s annual report. Call
money was not held at the maximum level
of Friday, but ruled above last week's
average level. Sterling exchange moved up
from the low level In the afternoon. The
closing tone of stocks was Irregular.

CA 1 rLL There was a liberal run of cat
tle here today, about 230 loads being on sale.
The receipts were some sixty-three cars
lighter than last Monday and Some twenty
eight cars lighter than the corresponding
day last year. The general quality of the
cattle was good.
Beef steers constituted the big end of the
receipts today and conditions favored sell
ing Interests. There was a fair sprinkling
of native cattle here and the market on
them was fully steady. They are getting
scarcer and scarcer, but common grades
are hard to sell. The western beef steer
offered were in good shape and there was a
good call for them from all sources. Trad
ing was fairly active and the stuff was
picked up right along. The market on
western beef was fully steady and the de
mand was equal to the supply.
There was a very small supply of cows
and heifers on sale, hardly enough to
arouse much Interest. There was a good,
strong feeling, however, and a good call for
she stun, so that a good market resulted
and the stuff was cleaned up early. Some
of the commoner grades were only about
steady, but the general market could best
be quoted stronger.
Bulls, veal calves and stags were In fairly
good demand at Just about steady prices.
There was onlv a moderate run of stock
ers and feeders here snd there was a good,
strong demand both from yard traders and
country buyers. Good heavy, fleshy feeders
ruled stronger, but the other grades were
very hard to move, buyers being extremely
Indifferent on them. Representative sals:

HOGS There was onlv a ilar lit run hr
about forty-five loads being on sale. There
was a better feeling in the hog yards today
and conditions favored selling interest
The market opened early and there was
considerable life to the trade. There was a
good demand for the hogs and the early
arrivals were cleaned up in good time.
Light hogs were picked up first at prices
ruling strong to 6c higher, although some
sales did not show as much advance as this
There wss a little weakness to the trade
on heavy hogs, still prices held up In good
shape. The bulk of the hogs sold at .-
6.3iJv with several loads at $5 35. while tops
reached 16 40. After the more urgent orders
were filled the trade on heavy hogs eased
off aomewhat. Representative sales:

SHEEP Today was banner day of the
year in the big barn as far as receipts
were concerned, there being about elghtv
cars In the yards by 9 o'clock This Is the
heaviest run here so far this season snd
If.e quality of the stuff whs very good
Lambs made up the hU'gest part of the
receipts and about two-thirds of the offer
ings were feeders. With the heavy re.
relpts here and at other centers and re
ports from Chicago coming sharply lower
there was a weak tone to the trade and
lie market was slow and lower all around.
There was very little done early, as It wns
some time before buyers and sellers could
;et together. Buyers fe-l tnat bottom
rices have not yet been reached and nre
earing the market whenever the oppor
'in'ty presents Itself. There were several
oada of fat sheep and laml a sold on the
ooanlns that brouabt jut about ateaily
prices, but the general trade wss lower.

HITCHCOCK CASE BEFORE JURY
World-llernld's Attempt to Prerent
Dee'a Claim Is Reins Gone
Judge Redlck and a Jury are engaged In
trying the case wherein the World Publish
ing company Is trying to prevent The Bea
from recovering the sum of 312.018, due for
the publication of the scavenger tax sale
notice during July and August, 1904. The
ense is up on appeal by The Bee Publishing
company from the action of the old Board
of County Commissioners In disallowing the
claim on account of the World Herald's
A Jury was secured within an hour, but
the case threatens to drag through several
days because of the line of campaign the
World-Herald'a attorney appears to have
laid out. He objects to everything, seeming
to see In every move of Mr. Connell for the
appellant a big chance to lose the case.
Official documents even are not acceptable
to the World-Herald lawyer and at one
point he went to the extreme of saying
that the court was presuming In allowing
oertaln questions to be asked. Judge Red
lck stopped that play right quick and with
some sharpne: .
County Treasurer Fink was the only wit
ness examined and he Is still to finish his
testimony on direct examination. He told
of getting extra clerks from the county
board In the spring for the purpose of pre
paring the Hat, and also how the board had
neglected to designate a paper In which to
publish the same. This neglect continued
up to the very last hour of the limit al
lowed for the filing ot the petition, and he
then, as empowered by the law. (lied the
petition. Next morning, July 2, he desig
nated Tho Evening Bee as the papr nJ
the designation was accepted In formal
manner. The copy was at once taken In
hand and the work was done aa contem
plated by the law. Afterward the World
Herald stepped In and protested, askjng for
the sum of flO.OOO as "the profits of the
work," In the language of Us protest. Ite
attorney Is also setting up that the county
board acted In time and did designate the
democratic orgun. Mr. Fink made Investi
gation and found out the board had not
acted. It was only after the members
learned of The Bee designation by the
county treasurer that the three democratic.
members got together and passed a resolu
tion. Notice of this action was not re
ceived by Mr. Fink until after he had acted
and delivered the "copy" to The Bee.
The case will continue Tuesday morning.
but Judge Redlck Intimated he will excuse
the Jury at noon, so they can vote at the
primaries. All the remaining Jurymen on
the panel have been excused until Wednes

GAS FIGHT ISSUE IN SPRING
Mlcharlaen Thinks That la tho Plaa
of Cleveland Parties aad
In the opinion of Councilman Nicholson
the Cleveland gas syndicate's represen
tatives, who left Omaha Saturday, have
not given up the Idea of getting a franchise
In Omaha, but Intend to come back and
make another effort
"My Impression Is they Intend to make
the matter an Issue In the spring muni
cipal campaign." said the councilman from
the Fourth. "Personally I think It would
be a good Issue. It would give the people
a chance to express themselves about $1
gas and the franchise It is necessary to
grant to get It. Opportunities will be
presented to get the Issue squarely before
the people, and If they are favorable they
can elect men to the council to carry out
"For the present I think the $1 gas
franchise matter is a dead one "
