Fanners Anxious to Hare Accurate
Figures on the Various Crop
BRAND LOOma FOR HELP
H. R. Gould of the United States
National bank bad to make good at
the Farmers' Congress on bis esti
mate of tho corn crop of the state.
Gould Is the man who for several
years baa carefully prepared an an
nual crop estimate of Nebraska by
taking the figures furnished him by
hundreds cf banks In the state and
hundreds of elevators.
The farmers criticised the figures and
said the corn crop was not nearly so
large as represented here. C. H. Qiia
tafson of Mead, president of the Farm
ers' Union, read the figures, 23,000,000
bushels of corn, and declared he would
give the president of the bank a new hat
If there were actaully over 176,000,009
bushels of marketable corn pulled over
the scales this winter.
Maybe Gustafson didn't know Gould
waa present. Maybe the reet of tha farm
ers did not know, but Oould poped up un
expectedly to defend his figures and he
was granted tha privilege of the floor.
He walked back and took the pamphlet
from Gustafson's hands. Then he read
the report, which stated that of actually
merchantable corn there la only lfl.OOO.OOO
'There," he said, addressing Oustafson
particularly. "That la even below your
own estimate, and yon ire accusing us of
making the estimate too high. If you
had put on your glasses you could have
read this correctly."
The matter of over-estimating crop re
ports waa threshed out as a side Issue,
coming up after C. J. Brand, chief of the
office of farm marketing of the United
States Department cf Agriculture, had
made his talk on marketing. He was
asked a hundred question and many of
them were concerning the accuracy of
the reports on volume of crop that are
published by the government.
finessed at Ftsjrsuros.
Charles Wooster of Sliver Creek de
clared the figures could be nothing
but the wildest kind of a guess. "I know."
he said, "because for aears I waa the
man who was charged with the duty of
furnishing the figures from my town
ship every year. They aent me a blank
form with long lists of questions to be
filled out They asked such questions
as "How many bushels of corn remain
unnhelled, In the cribs of the township?
It would have taken me a week to deter
mine anywhere near accurately that one
question alone, to aay nothing of the
hundred others equally difficult. So I
knew they expected nothing of me hut
a crude guess, and so I made that guess
with absolutely nothing at all to base It
Mr. Brand said If the farmers had sug
gestions to make as to methods of Im
proving the accuracy of the estimates, or
any other suggestions with good bottom
to them, tha department would be glad
to consider them.
Third Case in Row
Taken from Jury
in Federal Court
When the litigants In the suit of
Thomas J. Donahue against the Santa Fa
and Burlington railroads came to an
agreement for eettlement Wednesday In
the midst of the trial before a Jury, It
