MA CORN DEAL SETTLED
Jaouith Gives Hit Check to Cle&rinc How
and Accept Warehouse Eeosipti.
THOUGHT HE WAS UNFAIRLY TREATED
ettleaseat Coanes Dar iMtm, Aeeerd

The May corn deal on the OmUit Oraln
exchange has been settled. Friday mornlnf
' A. B. Jaqulth gave hl check to the clearing
house for 138.018.74 and accepted warehouse
recetpte or 80.028.&2 bushels of No. 1 corn
In the Updike Grain company's elevator at
South Omaha. That closed the deal, as Ja
qutth'a trades with J. W. Holmqulst and
others had been closed out the day before.
The settlement should have been made at
J.i Thursday, according; to the rules of the
exchange, but Mr. Jaqulth declared he had
been unfairly treated and tendered his
check only with a letter of protest, which
Included the statement that he would hold
the exchange amenable for damages and
which demanded the settlement of unfilled
May trades to the amount of W.XO bushels
at mi cents a bushel, at which figure the
option closed Thursday.
The disagreement arose over the fact
that the rules of the exchange did not
specify the time when warehouse receipts
shall be registered at the exchange.
Mr. Jaquith's story runs thus:
"I thought receipts should be registered
by 10 o'clock, and when I went to see
Secretary McVann. was Informed by him
that since the rules did not specify a time,
he would make a ruling that the regis
tration must be made by 11 o'clock. Hs
afterwards Informed me that he had noti
fied N. B. 1'pdlke, who was selling corn,
of the decision. I told Mr. Updike, and
also Mr. Babcock of the same firm, that
all trades made after 11 were to be un
derstood as under Mr. McVann's ruling-.
Then I went buying corn and took
about 15,000 bushels from Updike. The
receipts were not registered until the
- HcVaaa Declines Check.
"Secretary McVann came to my office at
TM, bringing me warehouse receipts for
over 80,000 bushels of corn, saying that the
board of directors had not stood by him
on his ruling and that the receipts would
have . to be accepted. I offered him the
check with the letter of protest, which he
declared he would not take. I then sent It
down to the exchange office.
"President Wattles. Mr. Updike. Secre
tary McVann and others consulted a law
yer last night, and this morning the board
met at my request A resolution was
passed to the effect that the secretary did
not possess the -lght to interpret the rules.
I said: 'All right, gentlemen; now that
ws know where we stand, I will withdraw
th protest and allow you to keep the
check.' .This was dona and I took the corn.
"Then they wanted to strike from the
minutes the resolution they had passed. I
would not consent and they had to let It
"I intend to have fair trading on the
floor of the exchange and I Intend to have
explicit rules If It takes me 1,000 years.
That Is why I would not take the receipts
until the board defined the secretary's
right to Interpret the rules. The board
must now pass a rule as 'to the extreme
limit of time for the registration of ware
house receipts. There wns no unpleasant
ness between Mr. McVann and nie, nor
between Mr. Updike Hnd me. This little
May deal was only a penny ante to what
there will be on the flour some day. sntj
, tn the meantime, I want to have tlif rules
made so there will be no possibility of a
It is generally understood thit Mr.
Jaqulth came out of the May deal a little
to the good, for he traded on the Chicago
board as well as the Omaha exchange
and made some good trades there.

The filing of charges alleging she Is in'

death because of a mania that everyone
wishes to Injure her, coupled with i:he
common hallucination of poisoned food.(.
For years she has liven In a single rolm
at Seventeenth and Cuming streets on the
third floor. Her mental decline Is said to
date back several years to a time when
she was employed by a merchant down
town. One day the merchant, in a ft of
anger, is said to have made a remark
which was construed by Miss Andersen as
slighting to her character. Her prida was
wounded snd she Immediately quit the
service and started a suit for defarratloh
of character. This suit wa' compromised
later and she was paid a small amount of
cash. But the Idea that the remar'c was

undermined, but she plucklly refusid as

SUIT ON LEGACY TAX LAW
Attack Mad by Attorney for Mc
Mnrtaer Estate af -Fifty
Another attack on the inheritance tax
law has been made by John T. Cathers,
representing the estate of Dr. David 8.
McMurtney who died about two years ago.
He left about $50,000 in stocks, bonds,
mortgages and other personal property In
a safety deposit vault in Des Molncs. Mr.
Cathers asserts the Inheritance tax law
cannot apply to this property because It
Is located outside the state of Nebraska.
The matter was argued Friday morning
before . County Judge Leslie. Deputy
County Attoiney Shotwell maintained the
tax applied to all personality wherever
located provided the deceased was a resi
dent of Nebraska. f
The tax Involved will amount to about
$500, but the principle applied to other
cased would involve oeveral thousand dol
lars In taxes. The case will probably be
carried to the supreme court no matter
what the decision of the lower court is.

banquet by the Underwriters' Association
of Nebraska at the -Commercial club Thurs

banquet were State Insurance Commissioner

was largely attended and was addressed by
President Scovel, Mr. Pierce and others.
President Scovel sold Friday n.orning:
"I am on a tour visiting the flfty or more
local associations of the country to famil
iarise them with the work of the National
association and have been out two weeka,
visiting Peoria, St. Paul, Minneapolis and

shall go from here to Denver, Salt Lake,
Kansas City, St. Louis and Dayton before
returning home. The annual convention of
the national association will be held at St.
Louis In October, which Is the farthest west
the meeting of the national association has

associations are taking a lively interest In
the coming national convention. The na
tional association Includes in its affiliating
membership all life Insurance agents of the
country, numbering 66,000 persons. -
All Want Information.
"Judging by my correspondence and by
the questions put at local association meet
ings, every member everywhere wants to
be Informed as to the general situation,
present and prospective, of insurance legis

state that has felt specially compelled to
Dush through Its legislation ln the midst of
abnormally excited conditions. April 71 the
governor signed the last of the bills, orig

the same high authority our National as
sociation waa invited to aend delegates.
That meeting left the whole matter of

"Without committing the association on

Chicago committee regarding their recom
