OMAHA, May 5, 1914.
May wheat Is held In a strong grip and
the shorti In that month will be able, to
even up tholr position only by going Into
the pit and bidding (or the grain as.
wanted. Congestion Is pronounced not
only at Chicago but at the smaller mar
kets of the country as well, showing
that those who sold May wheat In the
belief that the run of receipts would be
liberal are now placed where they will
have plenty of time to regret putting out
short lines under conditions which looked
rosy, but which have proved ' anything
but satisfactory to them.
It Is said there Is big open Interest In
the May wheat at St. liouls and that
shorts thero will have more or less
trouble In covering. May wheat sold lOUc
above July In the Mound City market
yesterday and the cash article there was
reported as dull.
The longs or bulls In May wheat at
Chicago are likely to experience more or
less trouble In changing their paper
profits Into actual money. . The - shorts
are among some of the stronger houses
In the trade and they are now making a
fight against the bulls and claim their
position will grow stronger as the month
passes. The fact there were sales here
yesterday of 650,000 bushels of wheat to
go to store, and purchases of 630,000 bush
els to come to Chicago principally from
the west and southwest Is a straw re
flecting the course of tho combat now
waging between the bulls and bears In
the wheat market at Chicago.
Corn was stronger and prices were VtW
ic higher. Cash sales, however were
quite small at 45,000 bushels. The princi
pal strengthening factor was the news
from Argentina, where rains were re
ported, and the markets of that country
were shargly higher, lHc at Buenos
Ayres and 24c at Hosarlo. ,
There was a small cash Inquiry for
oats, only 154.000 bushels changing hands,
which caused a prlco recession from the
The strength In the corn market and
the advance In hogs at the yards were
the sustaining Influences In provisions.
A commission house with foreign connec
tions led in the buying of lard and ribs
and local shorts were conspicuous buy
ers of pork. Longs led in the selling.
Cash trade was unsatisfactory.
Cash wheat was unchanged.
Cash ,6orn was unchanged to lc higher.

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS
Pent ores of the Tendinis- and Closing
. , ..Prices on Board of Trade.
CHICAGO, May 6. Despite a strong
front at the outset, wheat today grad'
uallv weakened on account of fine con
ditions for growth and because of en
tire absence of export . demand, The
market closed heavy at the same as last
night to VMl?c lower. Other speculative
articles all nad a net gain, corn, n"'c;
oats. He to ana provisions
shade to sc.
Interest In all else proved secondary
to the great harvest promise ror winter
Rough weather, which may set back
spring seeding to a hazardous extent In
sections where the work has not been
Concluded, brought some support to wheat
in - the first part of the session. Tre
dlqtlons of wide-spread frost counted for
awhile, too. In favor of of the bulls, and
so also did higher cables.
Fear that there would not be gen
erous arrivals of Argentine corn until
lato June or In July gave corn prices
a strong upward bent throughout the
day. Further storms In Argentina and
reports .that South American dealers
were .endeavoring to buy back corn
sold for shipment up to May 20, made
shorts here anxious. Improved shipping
demand helped cause the oats market
to climb. Besides It was estimated that
the-, acreage In the leading states had
decreased 3.25 per cent.
Provisions ranged slightly higher with
hogs'and corn. Trade, however, waa the
smallest recorded In months.

South Omaha Man
Pays Two &oats to
R, Buckingham, a laborer employed by
Samson of Ak-Sar-Dcn, garnered tho
hlrcus, or got the goat, of a friend In
South Omaha. He paid ten of them
things for the privilege, but with the
aid of the captured member of the tribe
genus capra, and "Dad" Weaver, a well
known herder of tho afore-mentioned
hlrcusee, he waa ablo to return the
ten to the bill-fold and add a new name
to the city directory of Qulvera.
Yeh! Tha'a rl'l No klddln'l
Mr. Buckingham hunted up a friend
who owns goats, and he bought an ant
mnl for use at the den. The price of
the beast waa 35. but because the lat
ter waa a married goat, and not wish
ing to break up a happy home, ts waa
also paid for his partner, Tho pair Is
said to ba especially stout in the neck,
and butting will be their forte. Their
first action after becoming Samson's sub
Ject, was to butt their previous owner
Into the Seven Cities and causing Clin
to return the purchase money.

BY GANG OF TOUGH BOYS
"Stop or we'll shot your head off!" a
crowd of young loafers shouted to A.

he was driving near Sixteenth and Wil

whipped up his horse, but was struck
Irt the back of the head by a rock before
lie got out or range of the youths.
CATTLE Receipts were of very modor
ate proportions again today and the
quality of tho offerings waa generally de
sirable, beef steers making up a big
proportion of the arrivals. With encour
aging udvlces from eastern markets all
classea of buyers were out early looking
ror good cattle, and desirable yearlings,
as well aa the best, of the' heavy beeves.

and cattle are taking on a heavy flit
lately, so that the Improvement In prices
actually has been greater than appears
on paper. In the main It was a very
satisfactory trado from a seller's stand
point. Less than a dozen loads of cows and
heifers were Included In the arrivals.
nnd with the usual demand from all
uources the trade was active and the
trend of values was stronger for any
thing good enough to attract competi
tion. Heifers and light cows still sell to
the best advantage, but oven the medium
and common kinds am finding a free
outlet at strongor figures, and the un
dertone to the market Is decidedly bull
ish, veal calves, buna, stags, etc., were
In very limited supply and quality good.
'mere was not a croat aeai 01 activity
In the stocker and feeder trade for the
reason that there was very little stock
of that kind on tale, Demand from the
country continues vigorous and all classes
of buyers prerer the lightweights ana
vearllnirs. Heavy and rouah stuff lc sell
ing to the packers at better prices than
the feeder buyers are wining to pay, out
the feeder buyers are outbidding the kill
ers on stock cows and heifers as well as
on stock calves. Trend of business was
small, but the undertone to the trade

Kansas City, Mo., to serve ninety-nine
years In prison,. In connection with an
aasautt upon Mrs. Shldler, a nurse, hax

Maloney, who arrested him here. Lew
kowltx still Insists that he told the truth
at the trial, and asserts that according to
tho Judge's Instructions to the Jury, he
should have been acquitted. He blames
his conviction to hU refusal to retain the
friend of a Kansas City police officer u
his laywer, and says that aa a result of
his refusal, the officer took the stand

lament Is that his aged parents had to
hear such testimony against him.
