good deal of curlmislty tn regard to this

to the reliance placed upon it as an Index
of growth of public Interest tn the market.
There was some fear that the apprehension
growing out of the Investigation of stock
exchange methods by the board of gover

fect of deterring outside Interest In the
stock market. Its influence was felt, It

A growth of such busmess was not lacking.

Increased business activity or Indeed from

draw gold from Europe up to the point
where Interest rates would come to a level

whether our foreign debtors will- not be
obliged to remit gold in payment, whether
our money market calls for relief or not.
The day's strength was shown mostly in
industrial specialties, Including the copper

record price again. United States Steel at

since the dividend of 1H was deducted this
month. The mock sold at 11314 in Janu

and forecasts of a severe decline In cot

lowance for recent storm damage, contri
buted to the late reaction in stocks and
to the easy closing. The day s net re

of Japanese bonds waa due to the adop

CATTLE Receipts of cattle this morning
while fair in point of numbers, were the
smallest for a Monday since August 10, and
with that exception the smallest of any
Monday this month. It will be remembered
that laat week 333 care were reported In on
Monday. The arrivals consisted almost en
tirely of range cattle, with very few'natives
of any kind in sight.- It was alao' a note
worthy fact thai beef cattle were In light
supply considering the size of the total re
ceipts, really desirable caitle especially be
ing very scarce. There was quite a sprink
ling of cows and heifers, eighty to ninety
care being In sight. The balance of the re
ceipts consisted very largely of Blockers
and feeders, with a very large proportion
of trashy stuff of all kinds.
Quotations on cattle: Good to choice corn
fed steers, $tj.4(Hp7.25; fair to good corn-fed
steers, $5.26(66.26; common to fair corn-fed
steers, $40Vb5.25; good to choice range

Beef steers were In good active demand
and as receipts were light, as noted above,
the market waa fully steady and some were
even quoting It a little stronger. Anything
that would come under the head of desir
able feeders sold very freely and the bulk
of the offerings changed hands In good
season. There were not enough corn-feds
on sale to make a test of the market, but
It la safe to say that a few tlesirs e loads
would have commanded good stroi - prices.
Cows and heifers were also active sellers
at fully steady prices and the bulk of tho
recelnta soon changed hands, a clearance
being made in reasonable season. As waa
the case with beef steers some' salesmen
were ouotlna the market aa Btrong d com-
pared with last weeg
Feedera of good weight and flesh, the
kind that both feeder buyers and packers
competed for, commanded good steady
prices. On the other hand the yards were
full of common to medium kinds, whl'h
were extremely herd to move. Speculators
carried over 2.009 or more cattle from Sat
urday and they accordingly were backward
about taking on any additional supplli s,
excepting in esses where thtt quall'y Was
very good. Outside of the best gradi s the
market was at least 106jl5c lower and very
dull si that.

ersl this morning, over lis) cars being re. ,
ported In. which was the largest run of
any nay since Isst lictoner. I ne arrival'
were nrettv well dlvldid between
and feeders and also between sheep and
lambs, although lambs seemed to predomi
nate. On account of the heavy I All of
rain a good deal of the stuff arrived wet,
some nf It very wet, which naturally had
a good deal of influence on the prk-e. Con
ditions all seemed to be against the selling
Interests. In the first place, receipts, as
noted above, were heavy and the flteces
wet. on the other hand Chicago alro re-
Corted a very heavy run, with a sharp
reak in prices, other markets were alao
Fortunately for the Belling Interests there
was a laige attendance of country buyers
looking for feeding sheep ami lsmhs. There
were also a good many orders In the hands
of commission men. Altogether the demand
for feeders was quite brisk and feeder buy
ers were the first to open the market.
The prices paid were generally steady with
last we?k and the trade was sufficiently
active to clea up a good share of the of
ferings at an early hour. 1m fact, the mar
ket on feeders was In about the same con
dition as il -as last week that Is. a good,
healthy and fairly active market, satis
factory to everyone.
On the other hand, the feeling on killers
was not so active, owing. In part, to the
fact that prices at this point last week
were too high as compared with other
sellli.g points and also to tho further fact
that Chicago was reported lower this morn
ing. As a consequence fat sheep were any
where from steady to 10c lower than last
week s close. The trade on fat lambs was
pretty slow throughout the morning, with
prices around 15c lower.

nilsslonership In the Fifth district between
fjrorge D Rice iniil William O l"re. It
would sppear by the naming he.i lline and
slugged articles appearing on mc iirsi pas
of the Junior yellow that Mr. I're Is suf
fcrlng as a martyr for his honest work
as a public servant In his present utile .
That the Intelligent republicans of this
district may be disabused of ibis Idea, th
many friends of Mr. Rice giving him their
earnest support, desire It to le known thst
they are neither "dishonest politicians"
nor "graftal s," but oppose Mr. l.'re fot the
following, among other strong and cogent
reasons: , .
1. Bt reuse he. claims all credit, of raising
the assessments of the nubile service cor
porations, when the truth Is eucli raise wns
made through the agnation created by the
newspapers and Real Estate exchange
long before he brcante county commis
sioner, or was thought of for that off lie.
2. Because he claims all credit for pul
ling the county on a "cash basis. w,th
$175,000 in the treasury." when the true
fact is that such happy result was pro
duced by the effect of the scavenger law,
the Inheritance tax law and the good busi
ness Judgment of his four associate county
commissioners in office. If thee Is $K.
000 In the county treasury today, why can
not the present salary warrants be paid'.'
3. Because Mr. I're Introduced a resolu
tion making the comptroller the purchasing
agent of the county, but was unable to f 'l
It adopted by the board. Had this resolu
tion carried It would have made this of
ficer the auditor of Ilia own accounts.
4. Because through Mr. I're hundreds of
dollars worth of prinling was given out
without bids or competition at exosMve
figures, one instance vf which was 1111
order that cost IhsI year $.".33 which this
year on competitive bids was procured
6. Because through Mr. I're contracts f ii
road work were let at higher figures than
the bid of the same contractor for other
parts of the work, when the performance
of the contract Involved no greater cost
to the contractor,
6. Over Mr. I're's protest the boaid
recently readvetllsed for bids for road work
and effected a saving of severs! thousand
7. The new detention home recently ac
quired by the county was purchase I
through Mr. I're's own real estate offnv,
Mr. Graham of the firm acting as agent for
the owner In the sale. ,
8. It Is known that the literature to the
Swedish voters recently mailed by Mr. I're,
purporting to bear the signature of c r.ain
prominent Swedish people, was not author
ised, as .herein represented.
9. The economy of Mr. t're In county af
fairs is visible in the luxurious office of
clerk of district court, which Is soon to ba
demolished, snd his opposition to the pay
ment of fees of Judges and clerks of elec
tion, when at the same sitting of the board
he carries In the board an allowance of
$378 of the county's funds to pay the pri

Is He a Republican f
OMAHA, Aug. 28.-TO the Editor of The
Bee: You publish In full the names of
candidates on the republican ticket to be
voted on at the primary on Tuesday next.
Theae appear under the heading, "Who's
Who on the Republican Primary-Ballot."
Permit me to call your attention to one
particular candidate who aspires to he a
state representative from this dUtrltt
whose name appears In your list, he calls
himself a republican, seeks to use the re
publican support to further his own ends
and at heart Is not a republican, but to
the contrary. When the critical moment ar
tlvea you will find him with the other
crowd. This man is Harry A. Stone, sec
retary of the Anti-Saloon league. 1
Having been associated with him re
cently in a business way and knowing hia
sentiments and views on political, matters.
I have heard him aay to me that he In
tends to vote the democratic ticket this
fall. I stand ready to verify this and sup
port what I say here by affidavit by
I am a republican: I believe in the prin
ciples nf this party and as such I do not
believe that any Individual pcslng as a
candidate on our ticket and who at heart
is otherwise should receive republican sup
port. I shall do all In my power lo defeat

"He Being Dead, Yet Speaketh."
OMAHA. Aui?. 30 To the Editor nf The

warning comes lo the American people
from the f'.vsh made grave of Orover
Cleveland. "He being dead, yet speaketh, "
In the dying words of the greatest roan In
moral courage and righteousness who has
ruled over sny nation of people n these
generations of the Ang.lo-Ba.xori race, a pa
triot and a hero, "the noblest Romsn nf
them all." The voice of Cleveland will be
heard and heeded by multitudes of men.
without regard to party affiliations, all
over this broad land. As wss Intimated In
an Interview published In The Bee at the
time of his death, on my visit to him a
year and more ago, In a long conversation
with lilm on public men and affairs, I ha4
the priceless privilege of listening to a full
and frank expression from him. 'It was
that conversation that Inspired m to de
clare in the Utica (N. Y) Observer what
I repeat now, wllh unreserved emphaiis.
