barrels a day. These will lead to the
establishment of other mills here, sooner
or later, for Nebraska wheat has the
merit. Minneapolis and other northern
millers long ago realised this, and for
years they have been buying the Nebraska
winter wheat to mix heavily with their
spring wheats, the mixture producing a
flour for which Minnesota wheat has been
getting all the credit.
When durum wheat comes to Its own In
popular favor, as It must In time, because
of Its Inherent strength aa a basis for prob
ably the strongest natural flour, Nebraska
will be right there with a large quantity
of the best durum grown. This wheat is
becoming more popular every year with n
certain claso of progressive farinera. It
produces heavily, and the recent ruling
against bleached flours must Inure to Its
advancement for milling purposes. This
macaroni or durum wheat will make bread
or macaroni whose strength, as compared
with beefsteak. Is as seven to one. Durum
wheat used to be fed to the hogs tome
years ago, and It was a very good cattle
food.' Secretary of Agriculture Wilson

A trip through macaroni factory at St.
Paul. Mliuiv which has developed remark
ably within ten years-proves there la no

such factories In a growing ratio with the
population of this midwest region. The
workers take durum flour and a small
amount of .water, two simple ingredients.
Mixed, the dough is kneaded, and kneaded
again, and then some more, for hours;
then is pressed by hydraulic power Into
the shape so well known to all house,

CITY OFFICIALS ARE SHOCKED

Mayor Dahlman expressed great surprise
and grief when Informed of the sudden
death of the city engineer, whom he ap
pointed and maintained In office over the
strenuous objections nf his city council.
"Mr. Rosewater was a man for whom I
always had the greatest respect, not only
as a man, but as an oflclal, and his death
will be a distinct loss to Omaha,' said the
mayor. "I never questioned his honesty,
his capability or his unswerving adherence
to what he considered right and I sincerely
regret his death. I doubt If there la an
other man In his profession In the country
who knows as much as Andrew Rosewater
did of engineering matters and Omaha
ought too be proud that he spent the
greater part of his life here with us."
"Andrew Rosewater was man of un
questioned ability and ranked as high aa
any. man In his profession In the country,"
said J. P. Crick, assistant city engineer,
"and I considered It an honor to serve
under him. He waa as honest aa a die,
true to his friends to the last ditch, and

"We had some little difficulties, con

departments, but I never questioned his
fidelity and intention to always do what
wss right," said Thomas J. Flynn, street
commlscsioner, of Mr. Rosewater. "He
made a good official and helped place
Omaha on a high plane."
Tribute by H. E. Barnam.
City Attorney H. E. Burnam, In speak
ing of Andrew Rosewater, called to mltid
the engineer's brother, , Edward, and said
that the two were two of the greatest men
Omaha ever saw.
"Andrew Rosewater and Edward Rose-
water were both men of a national repute
tlon, both were leaders In their line of
endeavor and both, while they may have
had their faults as all or us have, were
true, honest and capable citlaens," said
C. O. Lobeek Knows Him Well.
"We of'en differed as to policies, but it
did not. effect our social and friendly rela
tions, and during the last year especially
we worked together In close harmony,"
said City Comptroller C. O. Lobeck. "As
far as ability, Mr. Rosewater ranked aa
the best and in my visits to other cities I
found that Omaha was often known be
cause of the Rose waters Edward and An
drewtwo great men of ability."
Goodley Bracker Grieves.
"Despite his faults, which all of us have,
and the differences of opinion we had, I
always considered Andrew Rosewater as a
man of fidelity," eald Goodley F. Brucker,
councilman from the Fifth ward. "The city
engineer and I always got slong all right,
I recognised his position and training and
his technical knowledge, and he waa al

what ought to be done and why certain
things wanted could not be done. I regret
his death sincerely."

WASHINGTON, April 17. "There Is suffi
cient wheat In the country at normal prices
to make bread for the Americans up to the
time when the new en p come In." de
clared Secretary of Agriculture Wilson to
day, "and those who attempt to keep prices
up at present rates rxpect to get their
money out of the common people the con
Secretary Wilson's statement was made
In reply to criticisms of J. A. Patten of
Chicago of the crop reports of the Depart
ment of Agriculture. Mr. Patten not only
discredited the department's estimate of
wheat crop, but said that the supply of
wheat was scarcer than the government's
"The reporters of the Department of
Agriculture are farmers living on farms,
and know. It anybody knowb, and have
knowledge if anybody has knowledgo cf
the facts," declared the secretary.
"We cannot whistle these men down the
wind. If we seek an honest class of com
munity and hrsltate to take the words of
the American farmers we will not establish
truth by going to the gamblers.
"The large maJorit of wheat has left
the hands of the farmers," continued the
secretary. "A fictitious price has been
created. The farmers are not beneficiaries
of such conditions. They will naturally
plant more wheat and next year's crop Is
likely to be abnormally largo, when the
gamblers will not be In the market, and
mischief will be done by disturbance of the
crop system. In the corner of 1838, when
the price of wheat was run up to 1185, the
prlco was depressed the following year
below SO cents, the result undoubtedly of
the upsetting of the equilibrium of the
normal supply and demand."
Condition Not Abnormal.
To show that a scarcity of wheat in this
country Is not the cause for the present
abnormal Increase In the prices. Secretary
Wilson points out that the amount of
wheat produced In the calendar yar 190S
was 665,000,000 bushels, as compared with
634.000.000 bushels for the crop year 1907,
making 31,000,000 bushels more for the last
crop year than was found the year previous.
After catling attention to the department's
report, which Indicated that the amount
of wheat on farms on March 1 last was
about 143,000,000 bushels In round numbers,
the secretary states that an analysis of
the wheat movement after March 1 in past
years indicates that the yearly estimate
of the percentage of crop on farma at that
time haa been about 5 per cent below the
actual percentage. He says that when
wheat becomes dear, as It is now aa the
result of the Chicago corner, people use
more corn than they do wheat until what
Is cheaper, and declares that the people
who are responsible for the corner will
have to consider that less wheat will be
used white It remains at an abnormally
