Crushed Hopes May
Rise to Legislation
When the etrce car company Issued
an edict during the primary campaign
saying that none of Ha emplayea dared
enter the race as candidates for city of
fice. It crushed the hopes of perhaps a
few of Its employes, as well as reminded
other employes of railroads and several
pther cot-poratlona that there is auch a
standing order in many of the local
corporations. While jio open protest
was made by would-bo candidates. It Is
said that employes of some of the cor
porations who have political ambitions
are Interviewing legislative candidates
with a view to getting an act passed in
the legislature which will prsvont cor
porations from making such arbitrary
rulings that force men to waive one of
the rights of an American citizen, namely
to run for office It he chooses.

OMAHA. Aug It, 1914.
There Is little doubt in the minds of the
more conservative grain men of the world
as to the position of farmers, who are
now in control of breadstuffs values
hlle It Is true that nearly UV.tMO.ixx)
bushels of wheat have been sold to go
abroad on the present crop, there la at
least 175.wO.wu bushels more that can be
spared to foreigners.
it develops that some of the countries
, i. i , . , ,, .
also curbed In the matter of supplies by
the CUttlna off for a time of the aa lane
and the inability for a period to get
breadstufts Into the Importing nations In
The eagernoaa with which foreigners
have bought breadstuff of late show
what may be expected In tha near futures
In the matter of demand aa well as
The strength shown In the IJvarpool
wheat market from day to day reflects
conditions there aa favoring the holder of
breadstuffs. Stocks there are light, and
It Is now said that the mill of Oreat
Britain are to be taken over by the gov
ernment. The strength displayed bv the wheat
market wa reflected In corn last week,
and In fact the yellow cereal was a
leader on several nays. Weather condi
tion have become more favorable. Not
only have rains visited the great belt and
the temperatures been lowered but the
buying power has been pronounced In
character and the fact that those taking
the corn were anionic the stroncer houses
of the grain world carried more or less
weight with it. Stocks of corn in all po
sitions in the United States are small,
and now that there are clearances almost
every day for foreign shipment and addi
tional Inquiries for the grain to go abroad
the situation la stronger than It has been
on the present crop.
An exceptionally active market hss
ruled In oats. Exporters have bought
eveiy available pound, not only In the
United States, but In Canada and they
have followed tha market on the ad
vances established In the belief that
higher prices must eventually rule.
Some of this grain was taken for use
hv the army and some of It for foodstuff
In the various sections now short of sup
plies. The provisions situation Is veering
around Into better shape. Purchase from
foreigner of meats and lard have been
of fair volume and this more than any
thing else ha helped to steady the mar

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS
Features of tfc Trading aad Closing;
Prloes on Board of Trade.
CHICAGO, Aug. 24.-Proflt-taklng wa
Uie feature of the wheat market today,
but Saturday's advance waa fairly well
held. Final prices ranged 4c higher for
September to 4c lower. Corn closed 4ij
lu down, oats 4c hlghert or September
to 4c lower and provision 74'ujuc de
pressed. Wheat opened easy, bulged, reacted to
the lowest of the day and then around
Saturday's close. The Heptember-Liecem-ber
difference narrowed to 4c. Record
clearances for North America, higher ca
bles and reports of large Hour sale were
bullish factors, but realizing sale re
strained any material advance and tha
close was rather eaay.
The decline In corn wa based on rains
and favorable crop prosiects. Cash houses
bought September, while there was only
scattered local demand for deferred fu
tures. Country offering were small.
Price fluctuations in oats were the re
sult of demand frem exporters and the In
clination of aome longs to take profit.
Rain were regarded a bearish. Shipping
sales were reported tha largest of the sea
son l,2OU,000, mainly to tha seaboard. A
slight Increase in country offering waa
noted, but the aggregate waa small.
Iard alone displayed life In tha nro-
vlsions pit and price receded on selling
by longs and packer. Cash demand for
meats was slow.

NEW YORK, Aug. 24.-COFFFE-The
coffee market showed a steaoier tone to
day Tha main factor waa supposed to
be the continued difficulty of negotiating
fresh purchases in nrai'i, wnien is saiu
to be accepting New York credit only on
a very limited scale, and reports that
some of the better grade are becoming
scarce in th local stock.
Liquidating transactions reported In old
contract wre at an advance of about 6
points from Saturday' pr'oe and. while
spot prices were unchanged at 74c for
Rio 7s snd 124o for Santos 4s, holders
were reported firmer In their view, with
the Interior a more active buyer. Cost
and freight offers were reported of Santos

CATTLE Receipt thl morning were
quite large, 42 cars being reported In.
This la the heaviest run reported so far
at thl point sine tha opening of th
range season, and is in fact the heaviest
of any day thus far thl year. At the
same time other market point were very
largely supplied so that the packers were
given a splendid opportunity to pound the
market. It ha been well understood all
along that packer have been anxious to
see a lower rang of prices a the con
sumption of beef ha been greatly cur
tailed at the big consuming center on
account 01 tne prevailing nigh price.
Packer hare been blamed to a large ex
tent by th public press for beef being so
high. It waa therefor no more than
what wa to be expented when buyer
took the bear aide thl morning In an
effort to force price downward. It goes
without saying that th trad wa very
slow and dull as seller were unwilling to
make concessions without a fight and It
was well along toward midday before
enough cattle had changed hands to
really establish quotations.
. When tha cttl began moving It was at
price generally 10dil&c, lower than laat
week's close. This means that the market
on most kinds of cattle was around 201jr38
lower than cn Monday of last week.

On tha strength of the light supplies
shippers bought a few of tha best hogs
early at 6i10c higher prices, paying a
high aa )tlli for some good weighty
butcher. Packer were practically life

Salesmen had been asking good stlft
prices all morning, and when buyer
