OMAHA. July 23, 1913.
The bears In wheat outnumbered the
buiu by the ratio of ten to one after the
close of business last night. While one of
the largest grain concerns In the world
Is staking Its money and Its reputation on
the bull side of the market at the present,
the rank and fife of professionals ad
vance the opinion that wheat must sell
very much lower. Farmers' offerings of
cash "wheat In the southwest were com
paratively small yesterday, but this was
offset by the lack of export takings,
which were reported by tooth the Atlantic
coast and gulf ports as small, being con
fined to ten loads. Tho situation, how
ever, points to a continuation ot heavy
takings by Importing countries across the
waters and was borne out after the close
by the reported heavy engagements or

The market was an active one, and while
there were ratm In many sections of
Nebraska, Iowa and the Ohio valley, the

Speculative trade In corn was the big
gest in many months. The country
bought on the scale not often paralleled.
Damage already from heat and acutely
threatening to become worse, with the
crop now at about the most critical pe
riod, had aroused widespread apprehen
sion. This feeling manifested Itself from
the start today and took on wlldness as
tho hours passed, with no sign of any
reaction In prices . ...
Kstlmates made by the leading experts
Indicated that the total corn crop might
bo 2,700,000,000 bushels Instead of the 3,000,
000,000 which not long ago had been- ex
pected by many persons. Other authori
ties said the present prospect was for
2.675,000,000 bushels, with chances Of the
amount being cut later to 2,50),000,W
bushels. Such Ideas were, what led to.

sufficient freedom to cause any consid

Wheat rallied with corn, the theory be
ing that there was not a normal price
relation being kept between the two
cereals. Another source of strength was
the scarcity of acceptances by rural own

Packers were very bearish again this
morning, and even shipping hogs suffered
a sharp decline. Some early sales made
to shippers wero no more than 6c lower,
but the prices paid later on In the day
for these same grades were all ot 610o
lower and In some cases ever more than
that Puckers made their first pur
chases at a decline ot 610c, but value
soon slipped to a dime lower level, and
remained there for the rest of the day.
Tonards tho closo the market was
weaker than at any other time, and sales
made during the late hours wero In
some cases quoted as Ktffl&c below yes
terday's Rsneral trade.
The bulk ot the sales landed at $8,603
8.00, with brat lights selling as high as
$8.95, a nickel below yesterday's top.

Slot Machine Henrlns;.
Tho slot machlno hearing ts scheduled
to oomo up today In Judge Troup's court
Just what action will be taken by the
board cannot bo known. It was stated
yesterday at tho offco of the city attor
ney that the board members had not'
appearod at tho attorney's office to make
preparation for any showing In court to
day. City Attorney Murphy Intimated
that his office would not take part In
the case unless tho Fire and Police board
mado formal demand for his service as
head' of tho city legal department.
"As tho lfgal department ef the city
wo have no interest In tho matter," said
tho city attorney, "except when wo aro
called upon to act for the board as their
advisers. They have not called and wo
havo no intention of partlclpatlns; In tho
matter except unler necessity. Per
sonally I am against slot machines and
publlo gambling of all kinds. We drew
on ordinance to abolish the gambling
and slot machine evil In Bouth Omaha,
but the ordinance after have boen unani
mously passed by tho council was vetoed
by Mayor Hoctor."
Men behind the slot machine monopoly
say they aro being handed a package.
Bomeono has entered the field against
them and Is said to bo placing slot ma
chines alongside of those operated by tho
former ihonopollsts In Bouth Omaha.
Firemen's Salaries Cut.
In order to make room for mora men
a cut Is to bo made In tho salaries of
tho South Omaha fire department A res
olution looking to this end will be Intro
duced at a meeting of the Flro and Po
lice board to be held this morning, ac
cording to n. member of the board. Mayor
Hoctor, It Is understood, la the Instigator
of the reduction In salary tor tho flro
laddies. The mayor, It Is said, Insists;
that Bouth Omaha firemen shall not re
ceive more than the Omaha firemen re
ceive, which Is less than the amount now
paid the Bouth Omaha men. Mayor Hoe
tor Intimated that Members Donahuo and
Devlne of tho police board were in uni
son with his vlows on tho reduction. It
ts understood that the mon have been
told that thvy must "stand" for tho cut
Two reasons aro assigned for the out
by city hall observers. One eoson Is to
mnko room for a fow more appointment
when the doubla shift goes Into effect
August 1. Tho other reason , la sold to
be tho desire ot tho mayor and a fovr
democratic politicians to have every
thing In readiness for annexation at a
moment opportune for the mayor and a
fow others. Just what will bo the atti
tude of tho firemen when their w aires
nro cut cannot be known now. Even
with the doublo shift system the Boutlt
Omaha firemen havo harder worlc than
tho Omaha deportment, It Is said. Hav
ing a small fprco and a large amount of
territory to cover, the local department
has never been reckoned as overpaid.
It Is not likely that business men or
tho taxpayers will look with favor on
any reduction In a department that Is to
neccisary to the well being of tho city.
Reductions In running expenses of auto
mobiles, street gangs and special Inspect
ors might bo welcomed more avidly, It la
