BRAZIL MAY CORNER COFFEE
Merchant Wateh Plan Somewhat la
Lino with Idea of Farmer'
RIO tB JANEIRO, April H.-(Spedal
Cablegram to Th Ree.) Coffee merchant
are watching with som concern a schem
that threatens, If possible, a "comer" In
coffee, to b engineered by th incoming
government of Brazil, In which country
three-fourth of the world's coffe supply
is produced. A convention haa been signed
by th three presidents of the coffee state
ofSan Paulo, Mlnas and Rio by which
It Is agred to maintain the price of coffe
at from B to 5 francs per sack of sixty
kilo (130 pounds) during th first year;
afterwards th price to be raised to 70
francs; tax of I francs per sack to be
levied, payabl by th exporter, to provlda
tho Interest on a contemplated loan of
$78,000,000 which I to be raised to enabl
the states to hold th coffee. An Important
clan of th convention provides for th
fixing of the paper currency In an excharut
value considerably below th present one,
"I do not think th schem can b
worked," said a reprenta,tiv of th firm
of Leech & Co., coffe merchants and
agents, "not even if they get th $75,000,000.
The whole thing uncommercial and
would seriously Interfere wtlh trade. The
threatened change Is already paralysing
business because of the general uneasiness
it is producing. Beside. It does not appear
toiMil though Great Britain would suffor
aa much aa th United States and some
other countries. England consumes only
about 15.000 tons out of the total production
of 73,000 tons."
Th whole matter la now befor th
federal congress of Braiil. It la claimed
that th object of th schem is to assist
th planter by bringing about what Is
practically a state aided truat.

To the Voters of Omaha
Whn I announced my candidacy for thl
nomination of the democratic party to th
office of mayor of this city I determined
to make a clean, honorable campaign and
to win or lose without bringing reproach
upon my own nam or trying to calumtnate
that of any one el. I conceived that th
people of this city ar sufficiently intelli
gent to respond to appeals to their interest
In an administration of their municipal
affairs alohg buslnesa lines, and that their
standard of morals is sufficiently high to
endorse honesty and fair dealing In such
administration of their government.
When th prlmarlea were held and I be
came th nominee of my party I specifically
asked for a platform auch as would, with
out evasion or equivocation, pladg the
candidates of th party, in words that
could not b mlsundrtood or miscon
strued, to thes ends. In thia view I had
the full support of th representative demo
crats who were called together for th
purpose of framing thla platform. Th re
sult of thalr labors speaks for Itself. Each
candidate on our ticket la specifically and
distinctly pledged to carry out, to th ut
most of his ability. If elected, every pledg
of that platform.
Within th last few days th opposition
candidate, and others in his interest, hav
mad th charge that the representative
democrat who framed my platform, men
of th blghcat Intelligence the ugh they
were, have stolen the platform of their
candidate. It I my purpose In writing
this letter to eaamln this charge, to show
the utter falsity et It, and thus expos the
duplicity of tho who ar making it
In th first place, what they ar pleased
to designate as their platform is a part
f th addr of their candidate made a '
Crelghton hall on March 1 Many of you
who read thla will probably b eurpriscu
to learn that thl extraordinary produc
tion, dignified a it haa been, as a pari?
platform, contains no single p)udg or
promts of any kind or on any subject
whatever. Neither th word "promise"
nor th word "pledge" occur in It from
beginning to end. It contain th worj
"believe" and ita equivalent "deem" som
seventeen times, but ther is not en single
specific pledg or prorata to do anything:,
tj prevent anything, or of any other kind
or character whatever. . f
In addition to this most extraordinary
omission, an omission that 1 never saw
nor heard of In any other platform, or
pretended platform, no "belief even Is
expressed upon many of th moat vital
matter In the present situation.
The telephone company and Its monopoly,
Ita exhorbitant chargea and Ita Imperious
refusal to connect with other systems for
th convenience of tho from whom it
derive ita support and Ita profits, la not
deemed worthy of th expression off a
"belief" even by thia reformer, wh ar
rogantly clalma to hav studied thes prob
lems so much mora "thoroughly" than I
hav that I took my eu from him and
"stepped onto a platform already made
and stolen for me."

Bitter In th History of
(From a Staff Correspondent)
DES MOINES, April a. (Special -Tele-
gram.) Returns from Guthrie county show
that Governor Cummins will have a ma
jority of th delegate at th republican
convention next Thursday! and that th
county delegation will likely be Instructed
Guthrt Center, in Guthri county, at the
republican caucuses today adopted strong
resolutions In favor of Governor Cummin.
Information is to the effect that Panora.
Bayard and Caaey, In the same county,
at their caucuses went for Cummins.
Guthrt county Is th horn of Lieutenant
Governor Herrlott, who lr at Stuart, and
Is a candidate lor th republican nomina
tion for governor. Th Guthrie county con'
ventlon will be held next Thursday. It
la believed that thla action on th part
of a large part of th county In going
against Herrlott practically eliminate him' '
from the race, though Lieutenant Governor
Herrlott, over th long distance telephone '
tonight, declared he would com to the
stats convention with the support of his
county. The resolutions adopted at Guth
rie Center state that, while recognizing the
worth of Lieutenant Governor Herrlott'a
publio service. It I believed that local
pride should be laid asld In furtherance
ef a larger duty to th state, which de
mands th renomlnatlon of Cummins. '
Definite Information from Madison county
today shows that Perkins carried all of
the county, with th exception of 'th city
of Wlnterset, which went solidly for Cum
min. The majority for Perkins In the
county over Cummins ia about 400, while
th majority of Conger over Cummins In
1901 was 223. Palo Alto county, in which
ther haa been a hard fight, went solidly
for Cummlpt. Mitchell county Instructed
it delegation for Cummins. Th Fay
ett prlmarle resulted for Cummins. Tay-
lor and Osceola went for Perkins. Tha cau.
rua at Colfax, in Jasper county, want for,
Cummins. Rockwell City, th critical place'
in Calhoun county, went for Cummin. Two
precincts In Charles City held caucuses and
went for Cummins, th other having al
ready taken a similar action. As a result,
ef th caucuses and convention that hav
been held thus far Cummins has 223 dele
gates to the atat convention and Perkins
74. A large number of convention will ba
held next week. '
Because of th fact that th atat camp
ground are unfit for us this year, being
unsanitary In their present condition and
because ther 1 no appropriation or
money on hand with which to properly
Improv th grounds, there will b no en-
eampment of the Iowa National Guard
this year. Instead Adjutant General
Thrift 'is arranging for maneuvers whloh
will tak th place of th annual camp. '
Th maneuvers Will consist In calling to'
some central city In a mobilization move
ment th companle of on regiment. The
regiment will then be marched overland on
a flva day' march and then tak trains'
for their home. Th march and th a-'
scmbllng of the troops will b done In"
very way aa though th state was about
to ba Invaded by a hostile force. Com
mander of regiment will bo required to
provide for the provisions and all th d--talls
of th march and there ' will b

th maneuvers, the dates for which will
be set next week, ther will be a school
for , th officer of th National Guard
