( KING CORN RILES EUROPE American Product Hare Tight Hold on the Old World. C. H. PICKENS EMPRESS ED BY THIS Osaahaa flrterae f rasa ikrwl with Report that Eerepe as Mrork Money Wtrlagenry. In a trip through continental Europe and England. Charles H. Pickens, general vt manager of Paxton OeJlagher company. who rMunxd W4n!tir. found scores of products of Amnlrin corn, from roasting rare on the streets of Naples, to glucoae confectionery along the bank of th Danube; front breskfast fuods at the hotels f dear old London to corn cakes on tha tranaatlantlc steamers. "Theee corn products are netting a fat hoM on Europe." ssld Mr. Pickens. "In Oermany. gwltserland. France. Italy and England American demontratora are In troducing corn product and they are nearly all made. In America or from corn grown In the Cnlfed States." "There la some corn produced In Italy ind more In Austria-Hungary, but It does not seem to be equal to the American orn. The Italian corn Is not served at tha hotels of Italy. bt we m w the people cooking It on the streets. They string tha ear still In the milk on wires and suspend them In kettles of boiling water. The pae- engera on tha streets buy an ear or two and eat them on the sidewalk. In fact. the people In one or two streets In Naples almost live on the sldewalka. We saw dealers selling alfalfa In little bundlea to the drivers of carts, who drove up to the curb an bought a lunch for themselves of boiled corn and a bundle of alfalfa for the horaea." ' Interest la Pall Election. Mr. Pickens aald there was more than nHlnirv Interest In fh. rnnilnf nrtftalffontla' l election In America among the Europeans " and erpeclally In France and England. "The wocder of the financial Interests In Europe Is the way In which American securities have advanced regardless of our financial' disturbance of last winter," he j said. "They felt certain that our aecurt I ties would go still lower when the 'panic' " was heralded by the pres of Europe. Then hen . tha country recovered quickly and the prices of securities went onward. It caught some of the Englishmen and othera. "EVenrwhere there Is Interest felt In the American crops, and It requires no careful observer to see how prosperity In America affects the European world." Coming through the east, Mr. Pickens said he noticed how much business had Improved since he sailed for his trip, and as he returned to Nebraska has seen and heard enough to Justify his belief th Nebraska. Iowa. Kansas and Missouri are the four beat slates In the union. Trade has recovered in the west In much better ah ape than In the eaet." he said. "Our reports now are very satisfac tory and I find business In Omaha has Improved to an astonishing extent during my absence." While In Switzerland Mr. and Mra. Plckene and daughter. Elisabeth, met Miss Elisabeth Baum. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Baum and a party of young women and Instructors from an art achool. Every where the party met Omahana.

Municipal ownership of electric lighting and power service In Haatlngs has been successful beyond the expectattona of thoee who first proposed the enterpnae. The con dition of the department and th enlarge ment of tha plant sine it was established In February. ehown by the re ports of the city clerk for the official year ending with July. The plant was established with th pro ceeds of a $ 31 ono bond issue and waa de signed for street lighting only. A commer cial aervtce was almost Immediately added and now the plant represents an Invest ment of approximately M),nnft. With the exception of revenue averaging about tl.XO a year from direct levy, sal operating ex perts and all extensions and permanent Improvements have been paid for from the receipts of the commercial service. The only debt of the department Is the original bond lasue and outstanding warrants ag gregating leaa than U.&'TX Not only has the plant paid for Itself and Its operation, with the exception of the amount derived from the sale of the bonds and the small amount f rem the levy, but It haa fumlahed the city with street light ing, which would have cost approximately tK.WO per year. There are aixty-eeven street lamps on the public circuit. Before tha municipal plant waa Installed the city paid til per lamp per month to a private concern. At 119 per month theae lamps In seven and one-half years would have cost approximately 166,000. If the city had chraged Itself for street lighting at thia rate, or credited the lighting fund at this rate, the department would now have a balance of tlXODO after paying off all bonded and warrant debt. Rates for commercial service are much less (than the average throughout the country for towna of this site. The pur pose of the administration has been to give the consumer minimum rates, rather than Impose rates which would give the city a profit. Persons who have given the matter careful thought are Inclined' to be lleve that eventually the commercial serv ice will support the entire plant and give ample revenue for extensions.

"Major Pickett, our son. was born July 17, 1S61. at Richmond. At that time you will remember General Grant bad begun the investment of Richmond and the two armies were pretty close together. While on his road to Richmond to see his boy. General Pickett, who was very popular with the army, was constantly con gratulated by his soldiers and officers and some of them built bonfires In honor of the event. These bonfires attracted the at tention of General Grant, who asked the cause. Being told that General Pickett was thus being congratulated over his new son. General Grant remarked, 'Put a match to some of the brueh heaps along out front there In honor of Pickett's boy.' Iter a set of baby silverware was sent through the lines to our house with the donors names attached to a card and the most cord.al expression of congratulations. The signers were General Phil Sheridan. Gen eral Meade and other old friends and West Point classmates of my husband. 'I think I am one of the few widows of confederate generals now living.

Thete Is a fraternity of sympathy between those who passed through that mighty struggle of nearly halt a century ago, both north and south, that grows with the years and which none hut they can un derstand." How strongly this was manifested at Appomattox, when General Sheridan, who waa a claas mate of General Pickett, asked him to be his guest snd entertained him with the aiucereet hospitality for the day or two following until the terms of the dispersal of the confederate army could be arranged. Only a short while before they were engaged In the most deadly conflict. and within a few short hours were renew Ing the friendships of former years, and were again boys at the historic old academy at West Po)n, forgetting and forgiving and cementing anew a friendship that only ceased with my husband's death."

HILL LINE IS FOUND OUT Burlington's Midnight Pro -St. Joe Bate Jmt Discovered. TWO TEAKS OF SECRET EXISTENCE laeartked by Shippers at Last la Their Excltesaeat Over the Hew TarlS of the "treat Weittra. Discovered! (Accent on "die," ala Stage.) Probabilities of a "grain rate war" aa a result of the new Great Weetern tariff are apt to come to a sudden end by all roads issuing similar tariffs, or became more aggravated by their refusal to do so, since the discovery that for almost two years the Burlington line haa had a simi lar tariff in effect for the benefit of Bt. Joseph and Omaha grain shippers have never known it until Wednesday morning. The Great Western threw some of the railroads into spasms and caused more war to be predicted than Richard Pearson Hob eon ever dared dream of by filing last week tariffs to equallxe ratee between Omaha and Chicago and Omaha and St. Paul on gratn coming west of the Missnirt river. The r.ew rates vary from t to 10 cents, the former charges being 11 and 11 cents. It amounted simply to the Great West ern giving a large number of towns west of the river on the Burlirgton and Mis souri Pacific lines an opportunity to ship the grain to Omaha, have It stopped on a market which haa been paying the high est prices for com and wheat, and for warded to Chicago or &t. Paul, the Great Weetern agreeing to take the little end of the rate. When the Great Western Issued the tariff the Burlington rail rod had nothing to say no objection to make or other threat of a rate war. This led some of the curious to look around a little and their sleuthing was re warded by the discovery that the Burling ton had issued, almoet two years ago. one of the "midnight" tariffs, giving St. Joseph the benefit of the same kind of a rate which fpo Great Western haa Just, given to Omaha. Whethfr the Burlington will 'now lasue a tariff meeting the Great Weetern rate and other lines follow suit, or the Burling. ton and Great Western be compelled to take a stand against all competitors. Is a mat ter of conjecture both wlfh railroad men and grain dealera. It is almost certain that the Burlington will be asked to lssu tariffs equalising the ratea from Omaha to Chicago and Bt. Paul on shipments originating weat of the Missouri river, the sa-ne aa the Great Western road has done. Fake Repaete Dealed. Reports published Wednesday that the Great Western would cancel the tariff Oc tober i are denied by both the Great West ern and the grain dealers. General Agent C. E. Ellis of the Great Western said he had received no official notice about- the cancellation. He htd heard from ao'meone that the grain dealers of Omaha had re quested that the rate be cancelled. Secre tary E. J. McVann of the Grain exchange said he had heard nothing of gra.'n dealera making sjch a request.

Councilman Bedford baa succfeed in get ting the diacaided gasoline lamps released from the Junk heap In the basetnent of the city hall and wishus to let. rcsidenta In th outlying districts know that they can have a many of the old lamps aa they want merely for the asking. There are over l.l of the old lumps and most of them are In perfect condkion. It is impossible to place arc or gas lamps at every corner, es-ccially in the suburb;, where the mains have not as yet been laid. People living In these localities can erect one of tile gasoline lamps for their own conveuience. though they must furnish the gasoline. Mr. Bedford says he believes there will be many calls for the old lamps, though he dots not think the people will keep them burning every night. His Idea is that when the householder goes down town at night he wi:i first light hia lamp to guide him on his way home.
