Whether this will mean . nnlal
session of the ' legislature depends
largely upon the feelings of the mem
bers of the legislature, the governor
not being favorable to an expense
upon the state of $12,000 to $15,000
"JuBt to 8ati8fy the whims of one
state officer," as he puts It.
- The situation is to lose the income of
the pure food department, amounting to
over $100,000 above the expenses -of Its
administration, besides allowing Nebraska
to become the dumping ground of every
other state for Impure foods, etc., or to
provide some way ot getting around it.

Dispatch to Berlin from Bulgaria
BERLIN, Aug. Sl.-(Vla London, 4:86 p.

outline of the proposals made to Bul

contest. His dispatch says.
"The conditions which tha quadruple

The British employed 100,000 men In
their attscks on the Galllpoll peninsula

were extremely heavy. The correspon

AT SERIOUS STAGE
Rate Drops to Point Where Bankers
Say Great Britain Hay Cur
tail Buying Here.
DEALINGS NEAR STANDSTILL
NEW YORK, Aug. 81. Foreign
exchange rates reached their most
serious stage today with an over
night break of 3 V4 cents In sterling,
the English pound Helling In this
market at 14.68 H, close to the mark
where curtailment of big foreign or
ders to the United States would fol
low, In the opinion of bankers here.
Nothing like the violent break In
quotations had ever been recorded In
foreign exchange markets here be
fore. The low level reached today
was 14 cent below the mark set
weeks ago by financiers as the so
called Irreducible minimum which,
when reached, would cause British
buyers to seek other markets In
which to place their orders for such
Imports as could be obtained else
where than In America. Foodstuffs,
manufactured goods and many other
products, In fact almost everything
except actual munitions of war, were
embraced within this category.
Pemorallitatlon In the foreign exchange
markets was succeeded by slmost ohaotio
conditions as the result of the break.
Healings In foreign exenange were vir
tually at a standstill, Katna varying as
much as a cent were quoted by different
houses, but these rates. In almost every
cam were purely nominal, and there was
no business worthy the name done In
English money here today.
The big break means that English buy
er, In addition to the top of the market
prices already paid by ttiem In this coun
try for Amerioan products, are called
upon to pay a premium of SSft cents on
every pound s worth ot purchases, or
more than t per cent' With London car
rying this onerous burden, something
new to British bsnkers, as English money
has for generations been the world's
standard of International flnanos, the i
question discussed In banking circles here
today was how long Great Britain would
continue to buy hers such articles as it
wss not compelled to.
There is no other world market of
importance open, It wss pointed out, but
more ilgid economy at home In all Im
ported articles and purchases by Great
Britain from suoh European neutrals as
had wares to sell, it was thought would
undoubtedly follow If exchange rates
should gs fower. This would result In
lessening to an exnt which cannot now

Not an American rontraot has yet been
cancelled, it was said, but the heavy
premium which British buyers must pay
gives every Indlcutlon, In the opinion of
looal hankers, that cancellations will fol
low unless rstes are rectified very soon
and that there will be a decided slump In
new orders. What this would mean to
American Industriea cannot bs estimated.
Ths new low record of M.M4 was the
fifth low record established In five con
secutive bualneca days. Since last Thurs
day the pound sterling has dropped from
Hflt, or 6H cents, nearly one-half of
which was registered when the market
With sterling's break today, francs
also were depreciated to within 1 cent
of their previous low records of 16.05.
