Corner in Wheat
CHICAOO, Nov. 3. Any man or set of
men who buy so much grain that the
price Is held out of line or out of reach
of buyers may be considered as acting In
restraint of trade. That Is the basis upon
which, In the opinion of President J. C. F.
Merrill of the Chicago Board of Trade,
Washington agents are working In the
Investigation of an alleged corner In
wheat centered at Chicago and extend
ing from Duluth and Minneapolis to the
Although, declaring that no lnveotlpv
tion of the Chicago Board of Trade Itself
Is under way, to the best of his knowl
edge, President Merrill said tonight sig
nificantly: "I do know that the federal agents who
were In La Salle street Tuesday went to
the northwest markets yesterday. This
makes It look as If the Department of
Justice always hus not considered there
was some 'understanding between big
wheat owners here and at other centers.
So far as the Board of Trade, as an or
ganization Is concerned, all is serene."
Rumors were current this evening that
a former stenographer of the welghmas
ter's office of the board had given evi
dence to the government. According to
reports In circulation, the source of which
Is not disclosed, GO per cent of the coun
try's wheat supply Is controlled by an
Illegal combination of speculators and
17,000,000 bushels of the total holdings of
the chque are in Chicago grain elevators.

$03 set of harneta. West moved for n
separate trial for each man and hla mo
tion was sustained over objections of
Deputy County Attorney Mngney, In de
tending eaoh West will contend that they
did not steal the harries, but If they did
each stole tmly half of it. Since the value
of the harness Is but f-i, one-half would
