GRAND ISLAND, Neb.. Sept. 17.-(Spe
clal Telegram.) Excepting for Its flral
finding and a visit by the State Board of
Bubllo lands and buildings, to the ho-
pltala at the home this evening, the in
veetlgatlon of the charges filed by Ad
lutant McOraw against Commandant
Barnes, came to an end this evening
o'clock after two solid days of schsIoii
and the heaving of any and all wltnes.se..
of the home who wished to come before
the board. At the end of the second day
the' board evidenced a weariness and
desire to get through, but yet patiently
listened to the defense and decided fur-
the. to look Into what are now evidently
the more serious charges, the treatment
of the patient of the hospital.
With the testimony of this morning It
was apparent that every charge against the
.-ai'lous contractors whose dealing are said
.o have been Irregular, had fallen entirely
.'lat. The Donald Porter company, com
pletely cleared up to the satisfaction of
the board, so far as the examination Indi
cated, any of the chortagen alleged by
Commlsnary Jones, as to the latter he went
mo the office February 1 and may not
personally have received the sugar that
was sworn by Soldiers Home employes to
have been delivered thero under a bill of
February I, but the department certainly
did. On canned goods a checking up by
Secretary Junkln and Mr. Jones fouuxl
Mr. Jones' books and the sums actually
paid the firm by the state, to agree. As
to O. Rot'sor, Mr. Jones acknowledged
when the former went on the stand and
examination by Mr. Jones wbh Invited that
every reported error had been rectified.
Mr. Koeser challenged. In addition, to
prove. If the commlsary would show on
what date a case of egga was alleged to
be short, that the said case had been de
livered and had never been paid for by
the state. Credits have been given to
avoid controversy. Wolbach & Son made

signed to meet the requirements
of a work-a-day world. In the
selection of honest material we
have gone far to make them
wear like iron, but above all
things they give their wearer
a similarly complete showing as to cloth
ing and shoes.
It was Bhown on the question of rules
that Mr. Barnes net axlda the rules recog
nized by the state when convenient and
declared them obsolete. The rules were
the recognized ones In the pension suit of
last year. A conference between the board
and Governor Shallenberger Indicated that
some action would be taken to establish
sometlilng definite In this respect.

Many witnesses testified that the hos
pital service was not what It should be.
that the patients often were not well
enough or properly fed. That the phy
sician was gruff and sometimes neglected
to Issue medicine. Some of this testi
mony was as severe an arraignment of I
the administrations of Commandant Hoyt !
and Commandant Askwtth as of the ad- i
i ministration of Commandant Barnes. The '
j attorneys for Mciiraw brought out that'
thirty-five gallons of whleky and wine had '
been bought in the last quarter, Dr. Slwi
gart testifying that many of the older pa-
i tlents In the hospital needed It. It was
not denied by Dr. Swlgart or the steward
that upon a few oci aslons they had drank
wine, which had been paid for by tho
state. As to the "stuffs! olives" Com
mandant Uaines stated that former com
mandants had kept a few luxuries on hand
in case of visitors and he did the same
thing. There was no evidence of the sub
stitution of vinegar for this Item In the

WASHINGTON, Sept. 17. Condition of
the crops In foreign countries, as reported
to the Department of Agriculture, Indicate
that tha -harvest has generally surpassed
expectations. In Roumanla alone have the
reverses been severe In July, (ailing below
the pre-harveat estimate. The wheat crop
of Hungary has also failed to give eren
the medium results looked for a month
ago, but tha other crops In that country
have exceeded estimates.
This year has been unusually favorable
for barley and oat a. In nearly all Euro
pean countries these crops promise above
average yields, and In Hungary Indications
point to the largest crop on record for
both these cereals, as well as for corn.
The drouth In Russia and Roumanla has
caused a considerable decline In tha pros
pects for corn.
Estimates of the world's probable wheat
crop have been published during the month
by two English trade papers and by the
Hungarian ministry of agriculture. These
estimates, although they can only ap
proximate actual facta, serve as a good
indication of the results looked for by
well Informed European and official com
mercial observers. As compared with last
year, these estimates show a gain of from
lSrj.000.000 to rO.000,000 bushels In wheat, for
corn an Increase of 166,000,000 bushels, and
for barley a gain of 334.000,000 bushels.
Oats shows the enormous Increase of 8GT,
OUO.000 bushels, while rye Is placed at only
24,000,000 bushels above last year's produc
tion. From Argentina comes the official
announcement that tha reduction of the
wheat acreage on account of tha long
drouth was less than anticipated. Reports
from India continues quite encouraging,
while from all parts of Australia glowing
statements of crop progress are received.
