brought about by a report that noma of
the European veasrl had agreed to tako

At the preaent time, according to ad
vice to the Omaha CIraIn exchange, all
Atlantlo roast and gulf porta are closed
against the exportation of grnln. While
the embargo Kaa not been officially or
dered. It la caused liy the Insurance com

The roada with gulf connection have
received notice that an embargo had
been placed on all export btialneaa going
out from New Orleani and Galveston.
Local office were notified not to bill
grain for export to gulf port until
further notice. At Now Orleana It is un
derstood that elevatora are filled to about
76 per cent of their capacity.
In the harbor at both New Orleans
ar.d Galveston there are a number, of
Qerman and English vessels waiting to
load out with grain, but order have been
received by them from their home port
to delay loading until further notice and
ailing order have been cancelled.
CHICAGO, Aug. 4-Whcat advanced
sharply today a a result of Improved
prospects for m speedy renewal of exports
to Europe. The course of the British gov
ernment In guaranteeing war risks on
shipments from this country was sup
plemented by similar action on the part
of Importing firm In Germany. Chief
encouragement to buyers, though, came
In the ahape of dispatches from Wash
ington that the bill to admit foreign ships
to American registry was only awaiting
the president's aignature to become a
law. The opening, which ranged from He
lower to 14 Ho higher, was followed by
a rise of 2hV83c compared with last
night, September touched a high 90c,
December Mc and May fl even.
Hot, dry weather, threatening serious
crop damage, lifted corn. After starting
HSFiio higher, prices continued to ascend
and In some case gained a much a

Although oats opened lower under pres

the decline In hog prices would cut down

Reports that there was delay In the

Not Expected by
Local Produce Men
Despite assertions to the contrary local
produce merchants do nut look for any
flagrant Inrrrasea In produce price In
this country as a result of the war In
Europe. A I. King, manager of Mayden
Brothers grocery department, declares
that a general nai- would bring prices

and commodities raised In foreign lands
At the present time beef la selling at
the same price It ha maintained for
some time. Corn-fed beef sells for fif
teen and a half cents and packers are
not buying additional supplies for the
simple reason that there Is no way to sell
except for home consumption. Commis
sion merchants are advising clients to
hold their stock In hopes of cessation of
hostilities which would oren th market
In Europe and thus bring about better
prices. As It is. the market Is limited to
home consumption, supply I as great a :
ever and prices must come down. '
The same appllca to flour. The wheat
crop Is abundant and with war there will
be no opportunity to export from this
country. The crop la so extensive that
home consumption cannot possibly use all

several visits to business places Monday
night, but secured only soma small
change and other minor booty. At Wil

Ilea Dow a a Utile.
The war In Europe has furnished a
solution of the anticipated car shortage,
so far as tl Is territory Is concerned.
Only about one-half the, normal quantity
of grain Is moving to market and dealers
generally aro of tnc opinion that there
will not be a heavy movement until the
war cloud starts to vanish, or until plana
are worked out by which the nations of
Europe will buy grain In the United.
States and take their chances on safe de
livery In foreign ports.
Prlcea have been ao erratic that farm
ers have not been anxious to sell, nor
have dealers been anxious to buy. The
latter have really been unable to quote
prices on which to make purchase. Dur
ing the last two weeks the fluctuation
have been so great that If they iiioted n
price to .an elevator out In ths country
th prloe might be I to I rents sway from
the quotation Inside of an hour. A a
result the movement of wheat ha been
light and consequently there have bee i
plenty of car to take car of all ship
ments. However, when th market
steadies down and th embargo on ex
ports Is removed grain men anticipate
enormous receipts, enough so that a good
many of ths rsllrosds will have difficulty
In furnishing sufficient cars.
Plenty of Money Here.
In Omaha there r.as been no lack of
money to handle all tho transactions In
grain and food products. In Chicago and
some of the other markets, It Is asserted
that money haa been very close.
Men coming In from Chicago today
and visiting the Omaha Grain exchange
expressed surprise that money is so
plentiful and easy here. They asserted
that In , Chicago yesterday, while condi
tions were in no wise panicky, money
was the tlg-Mest In years. The savings
banks all enforced and maintained the
sixty day notice clause and that It was
next to Impossible to securs cash on a
check for mors than $100 at any of th
national or state banks. .
No Reason for His
' Remaining Here
C. V. McLaughlin, vice-president of the
railroad . engineers' organisation, who
came here anticipating a strike and who
expected to remain and - direct the
troubles from . this end ' of the western
lines, has returned to his home In lara
mle. Mr. McLaughlin wa pleased with, an
nouncement that . the railroad manager
and the men were to get together and
arbitrate, and expressed the opinion that
an agreement that will be satisfactory to
all parties will be reached.

Amateur telegraphers have Incurred the
displeasure of the city electrical Inspec

accidents have occurred when wires from

William Wallace Scotland's Great Patriot
FOR nearly seven hundred years the sons and daughters of Scotland have revered the memory of
Willace. It is not too much to say that this will continue for seventy times seven hundred years.
When but a youth the love of Personal and National Liberty burned so fiercely in the breast of
Wdlace that he revolted against England's tyrannous rule. At the head of his gallant oand of riders he
won skirmish after slurmish, and finally; at the opportune time, quickly organiied an army and routed the
