GRAIN AND PRODUCE MARKET
Sentiment of the Wheat Traders is
LOOK FOR CORN REDUCTION
Dull In the Yellotr Cerent Trnde

the Prlcen for Stock of
OMAHA, Mny 11. 1914.
Tho sentiment of tho wheat traders Is
mainly bearish, but the strong news that
has come from abroad ot late and tho ad--fence
there In face of declines here, have
r tendency to hold short sellers In check.
It Is the belief of many bull traders that
Europe will take all tho spare wheat on
this side In the next three months and that
the continued absorption of the deferred
futures by houses doing an export busi
ness will eventually affect them. For tho
present crop prospects arc too good for
the outside trade to Indulge In any buying
of consequence, and at tho same time
prices of the new futures are at a level
whero all bear leaders are afraid to sell
shcrt to any extent and stand on their
trades for more than Uc loss. Bear lead
ers see nothing but lower prices so long
as crop conditions aro as promising as
Cash wheat was -unchanged.
Corn bulls are. looking for heavy re
ductions In stocks for the week. They
figure that they will be down below 4,000,
000 bu. In today's report. This will show
a loss of. 8,000,000 bu. from the high mark
of the season In face of less than a nor
ma! demand. It was the Impression last
week that Finely, Barrell & Co., who
have been credited with being tho largest
holders of the May option, of late have
Bold out their lines. They have deliv
ered the bulk of the cash corn sent out
the last few days and put out 105,000 bu.
Saturday which went to shipping houses.
Cash corn was He lower to c higher.
The oats market got into a rut last;
week and tho outside trade refused to
have anything to do with It.

SHEEP The strength In last weeks
closing trado showed Itself again this
morning, and the receipts wero about the
average for a Mondny, being estimated
ot some 7.500 head, contrasted with 5,435
lat Monday and H.616 on the same day
last year. Not many offerings changed
hands during tho eaily hours, but this
was because the packers wore unwilling
to concede as much ndvanee as the sellers
asked. Later in the forenoon, however,
when a satisfactory trading basis was
arrived at, the movement scaleward
livened up considerably and sellers were
not long In effecting a completo clear
ance, with prices anywhere from 15c to
26c higher on wooled ond clipped lambs
and generally 10HJ15o up on anything In
tho line of aged sheep, which, as usual
of late, consisted mostly of clipped ewes.
Tho proportion of wooled lambs was
small, amounting to no more than about
six cars, and practically all ot these were
on the Mexican order, there being soma
good enough to make a new high mark for
the year and tho highest price since a
year ago. The top Mexican lambs brought
$8.70. This month last year lambs sold
A range of $7 25.R7.40 absorbed tho bulk
of the clipped lambs, with th latter price
being the top for the season to date. The
slipped lamb supply was fairly good for
this time of tho year and the quality of
tho offerings was much the same as to
ward the closo of last week.
Tho mutton receipts being smalt, trado
was naturally of small proportions. Early
transactions Included some clipped ewes
at $5.60, the record for the season thus
far. Clearance voa barly.

CATTLE The week starts out with a
rather moderate run of cattle, about 3,600
head or only a few more than were hern
a week ago. Quality as a rule was not
as good as last week, although beef steers
constituted fully 75 per cent of tho offer
ings. Trade was slow right from the
start. Advices from eastern markets were
generally rather bearish and packers gen
erally reported their coolers full of beef,
-with a very Indifferent demand for It.
On account of the warm weather tho
cattle wcie all taking on a heavy fill
and as the dressed men were strongly
averse to Duyinc water stock, the ais
position was to wait as long as possible
before doing business In order to give

ready sale at steady to strong prices.
There was scarcely a full load of cowb

HOGS Supplies were generous for a
Monday, 106 cars, or 7,200 head, being re
ceived. This Is slightly larger than last
week,, hut Is more than 700 smaller than
a year ago.
Discouraging advices from other points,
coupled with the liberal local supply,
gave things a dark look from the very
outset, and the few loads bought early
by speculators and shippers were all of
10c and In spmo -cases l&a lower. Park
ers started out even worse than this,
their' early offers being all of 1015o
down. As a result of this bearish tend
ency to values the trade was extremely
dull during the early hours. Salesmen
held out for better prices until long after
10 o'clock, but packers had everything
their own way, and when the supply
finally started to move It was at the
figures proposed early, that is, fully 10p
15c lower than Saturday's average.
Trade continued slow all the way
through and the close was extremely
draggy. It being well along toward mid
day before a clearance was finally made.
Prices were pretty well sustained through
out, though, and while offers weakened

WASHINGTON. May II
C. Knox, secretary of state in Presi
dent Tnftls cabinet, who rejected Great
Britain's protest aealnst tho right of tho
United States to exempt American coast
wise shipping from the payment ot Pan
ama canal tolls. In Washington tonight
Issued a statement arguing against the
exemption repeat bill.
Primarily, Mr. Knox asserted that toll
exemption for American coastwise ships
Is not In violation of the Hay-Pauncctoto
Pointing out that the 1'nltcd States is
building tho Panama canal at an expense
of $400,000,000, Mr. Knox further declared: I
I'. S. !iirintlnK tho Money,
We alone are expending the untold
millions necessary to fortify and protect
tho canal so that some belligerent eager
to secure tho resulting advantago may not
destroy It; wo alone are bearing tho risk
ot losing all this Investment as the result
of some natural cataclysm, such as an
earthquake, against which no human
agency can securo us; wc alone have
stood for whatever of criticism has come
from the manner ot acquiring the canal
xone a criticism encotlraged and fostered
by the very class which now seeks to
turn over to Europe a gratuity, the ben
efits ot our action: w alone havo put
tho lives ot the flower ot our army en
gineers and of thousands of American
cltlxens through all the hazards and dan
gers of fatal tropic maladies; and, finally,
no other country has shared and does noi
propose to sharo one penny ot this ex
penditure or any phase of any risk con
nected with our stupendous undertaking-.
Not entitled to llenrflta.
'Surely upon theso facts thorn arises
no necessary implication that ureal
Britain Is entitled to the benefits of this
colossal vtork on the aami and Identical
terms an we, the owners, tho builders,
the operators, the protectors and the In
surers of the canal, or that It shall dic
tate how wo shall treat matters ot purely
local national trade and commerce, or
that wo shall be denied the very rights
In respect to our domestlo commerce,
whvl'h she herself claims and exercises and
which overy other nation In tho world
Calling attention to article 3 of the
treaty upon which Great Britain bases
Its protest, Mr. Knox explained that It
contains six rules, the first granting a
privilege and tho others spccfylng condl
tlons upon which that privilege Is to bo
Lnntcnntto of Grant.
" 'The canal shall be free and open to
tho vessels of commerce and of war of
all nations observing these rules' Is the
langusge of the grant," ha c6nt!nued.
Quoting the rules which relate to war,
he submitted that they did not apply to
the United States.
Who "Will Enforce Knleat
"Has the United States," Mr. Knox In
quired, "bound Itself not to use the canul
It It should exercise a right pt war or act
of hostility within Its sovereignity If It
should revlctual lis ships or take stores
In the canal; If It should embark or dlsem
bark trnons within the canal; If Its ves
sels of war remain within the waters
longer than' twunty-four hotirst If so
who Is going to enforce these rules upon
the United States and will nur obedience
to them be compelled hy the guns we are
planting there for tho protection of the
canalT Does not such a review of our
right Invito all other nations to war
with us It we, during an actual state of
war, use the canal for any military
purpose? In short wpuhl we not thus
make all nations the allies ot our Im
mediate adversary If we have agreed
with all nations through Great Britain
that the rules we prescribe for the use
ot the canal apply to ourselves, the
grantors ot the use?
Has Same Effect.
"If the right to protect the canal
and the right to protect ourselves by cxer
cluing privileges by our rules is Incident
to our sovereignty, the right to promote
our domestlo commerce In a field exclu
stvety Its own Is an Incident ot sov
erelgnty and ownership having the same
To deny the free use of our own canal
for our own vessels Is lust as much an
Impairment of our sovereignty as to deny
our right to exercise acts of belligerency
In nnd for Its protection. '
Mr. Knox revltwed the history of no
gotlatlons during his administration over
the British protest, declaring that it
waj never contemplated "at any time
or period In the history of the isthmian
undertaking that Great Britain should
be on terms of equality with tho owntx
of the canal.'1
His position he summarised thus:
"As Great Britain has no interest In
the canal Itself, but only in the use ot
the canal, the United States should not
admit that the Hay-Pauncefote treaty
'Imposes limitations upon the freedom ot
action of the United States' to legislate
upon matters not affecting Ore at Britain's
us or the terms upon which her use is
to be enjoyed."

Panama canal tolls exemption debate
running strong1 in the senato and (ho
lioiiso facing a record vote on the pro
posed constitutional amendment for na-tlon-wldo
prohibition, congress promises
to havo a busy week. Developments in
the Mexican situation to revive talk ol
war aro problematical.
House democrats will hold a caucus
Tuesday night with adjournment enrly In
July In view. 1 resent plans ot leaders
contemplate passage ot the necessary ap
propriation bills, enactment of several
nntt-trust measures, the rural credits and
a vote on tho prohibition amendment.
All theso subjects with tho exception of
the amendment will coino up In tho cau
cus and nn effort mny be. mado to dis
cover party sentiment on prohibition.
Senate majority lenders havo not yet
formed plana for a party conferonco on
u legislative program, but there is a
strong sentiment for tho enactment ot
legislation such as tho house Is expected
t'i approve, without, however, a vote on
.Mny Iteport Soon.
Tho senate Interstato commerce com
mittee will conclude Its hearings on the
trado commission anti-trust bill early In
tho week and a report may be made
There Is a feeling on tho part ot somo
democratic senators that this legislation
hould not be taken up by them at this
session. Many senators are aald to be
llcvo that dcbitto on legislation ot this
mportanco can not bo completed for six
weeks or two niontnx and that the
country would be better pleased If con
gress ndjourned in July than If It stayed
In session twu months longer' and put
through this legislation. How far this
feeling may go toward supporting an
effort temporarily to lay nsldo the anti
trust legislation is not predicted as yet
The senate banking and currency com
mittee expects to receive a report durtng
the week from its sub-commltto on a
rural credits bill. Tho bill seems prac
tically certain to bo confined to the land
mortgages and the full committee may
decide upon a report within the next ten
days or two weeks.
Rvrpylioily to llrtv Hnr.
The tolls exemption debate probably will
not be concluded during the week. Many
senators already have spoken, but there
Is no disposition to end talk until every
senator has had his say. The senate
probably will pass the agricultural ap
propriation bill boforo Saturday, the ap
propriation committee probably will re
port the legislative, executive and Judi
cial appropriation bill nnd the Indian af
fairs committee tho Indian appropria
tion bill. Adjournment was taken yes
terday until Tuesday as a mark of re
spect to the American rsllora and ma
rines killed at Vera Crux.
Interest In tho house centers In Mex
ican developments. Representatives gen
erally, Including some administration
sponsors, would not be surprised it the
week would be mnrked by some decislvo
movement by the administration.
Congress Is prepared for any war emer
gency. Lying on Speaker Clark's desk

All kinds ot rumors, about tho pros
pects for action on the prohibition reso
lution are flying about tho capltol. Some
of the prohibition members aeaert they
will fight to win, with the sentiment of
the country back of them and that they
believe they will command a large vote
in the house. Members opposed to the
resolution declare that It could win on a
majority vote, but that It cannot possibly
muster tw6-thlrds of the house, necessary
for passage ot a constitutional amend
ment. The eenute bill to provide for tem
porary machinery for popular election of
United States senators, a problem which
some of the states already have met, will
be acted upon under an agreement Tues

matic and consular appropriation bill will
