OMAHA WHEAT HAS
RANK OF ITS OW1
Stamp of Inspector Powell
Taken by Foreign Countries
and No Questions Asked.
PUTS OMAHA ON GRAIN HAP
If you should happen to be in Lon
don, Liverpool or any other foreign
seaport to which American-grown
wheat is shipped and in looking over
the waybills- of shipments if you
found one that hid stamped across its
face, with just tn ordinary., rubber
stamp, thewordsiv ; ;:.
"Approved.- "George B. . Powell,
chief inspector and f weighmaster,
Omaha -: Gram Exchange, . Omaha,
Neb." yon would not have to go any
farther to ascertain the quality of the
wheat covered ' by the waybill and
certificate. ' You would know tEu
this wheat was of the highest aualitv
was grown in Omaha, trade territory
ana mat umana was the market town
from whence it came.
Since the first of the present year
over 8,000,000 bushels of such wheat
and so certified has gone to foreign
ports from Omaha. Its value has ex-
; ceeded $12,000,000, to say nothing of
me treignt and ocean-going charges.
Hear of Omaha.
Prior to the first of this year grain
grown in Omaha trade territory and
the Omaha Grain exchange had no
standing in tne foreign countries. The
facts were that across the big pond
there were a lot of the wheat jobbers
and millers that knew nothing about
wneat grown in Umana trade terri
tory, looking upon all of the cereal
as being American-grown. And while
tney Knew nothing about the wheat,
if possible, they knew less about
Omaha as a grain market.
One day Chief Inspector Powell
evolved an idea. It was that wheat
grown in Omaha trade territory is
the best in the world and the only
wing necessary to oroaaen tne scope
of the Omaha market would be to
spread the news concerning the qual
ity of this wheat. ,j
Mr. Powell got busy. He sent sanv
plea of the wheat abroad and explain-
ed that all of the wheat coming in
and going out of Omaha was bought
and sold on his inspection. .This
looked good to the foreign buyers and
tney placed a small order. The service
was satisfactory and more .orders
were placed, with the result that with:
in the last sixty days Omaha has be
come one of the largest markets in
the country sending out export wheat
. Previously, wheat sold in Omaha
. . rLI n i . - t a
-. went io inicagu, oaiiimore, new ur
leans, or some of the other bis ex.
porting points. There it was graded
and inspected, and with this grading
and inspection , went across . the
ocean. . . i-', , ,
Now everything is changed. Agents
for exporters buy their wheat here. It
is inspected and certified to by Chief
inspector fowell and starts for desti
nation. At destination it is received
on: this inspection and certification
anor no questions ever asked as- to
quality, -, --.-v
The accomplishment of Jit. Powell,
it is asserted, has brought about a sort
ot revolution in. uis grain business,
especially- that having to k,, with
, wheat. It has placed .the Omaha trade
territory .wheat at the top and at the
same time made Mr. Powell one of
the most-looked up to grain men in
me country. r- -i-v.. y

Dead Body of Policeman
Is Found Upon Roof
brand Island, Neb., Aug. 22. (Spe
cial Telegram.) The dead body of
Policeman Hints, who disappeared
last night shortly after going off
duty, was found lying on the roof of
a lumber, company a building this
morning. The theory is that he had
observed something at a nearby room
in house that has been under susnl-
cion and had mounted the.building to
do some observing and was overcome.
There were no wounds of any nature
and so certain are the authorities that
death resulted from heart disease of
which he had complained lately that
probably no inquest will be held. He
was about 05 years of age, has a num
ber of grown children and leaves s
wife. ' -

lian i., nowever, made turn step all
the way. Both horses worked slower
in this heat, but speeded up again in
the deciding tilt, when Ben Earl fin
ished in first position, with Childs
riding prettily, in 2:08.
Deputy Sheriff paced out a third in
the race, finishing in third and fourth
positions, respectively, in the second
and third heats. By extending him

by Edward Peterson and Tom Den
nison, won the first two heats and
the race in the 2:14 event. Grain Ex
change purse of $1,000. A bad start
in the last heat and also the fact that
he had to go the long mile, was all
that kept the Peterson-Dennison geld
ing from making it three straight
In winning the race, R. C. H. ad
ministered a beating to two famous
trotters, particularly. Miss Densmore,
of of the prides of that famous fam
ily, and Heir Reaper, holder of the
state trotting record up until yester
day; he likewise did a clean job in
shaving a half, second off of Heir
Reapers mark of 211, winning the
first heat in 2;lM.
In Best of Form.
It is doubtful if a trotter in the
United States, elicihle to R. C. H
class, could hsve beaten him yester
day in tne llrst heat he traveled like
the wind under Driver Childs' reins
Credit is due Heir Reaoer for his
great trotting; he showed his speed
in the second beat, when, after a bad
break at the start, he finished cbse
on R.-C. H.'s heels:
The Densmore horse won a well-
earned victory in the final heat, a
performance that got him second
money in the race.
Anzonetta, a Nebraska animal, fin
ished second in the first heat, hur (ell
back to fourth in the second and third
trials and had to be content with
fourth in the finals.
Two trotters were distanced in the

Editor of The Bee: In your issue of
August 11 you published an adver
tisement by the Nebraska Prosperity
league, reprinting what was purported.
k to be an interview with me in the St.
. Louis Post-Dispatch. This is absolute -fiction.
I -have made no such state
ments to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
or anyone else.
- Since the state closed its doors to
the liquor business -a never-ending
campaign of falsehood has been con
ducted by the liquor interests of east
ern states. With scarcely an exception
not one truthful assertion has been
published by the whisky dealers about
the situation in this state. -The won
der in my mind has always been what
strange sort of mentality is responsi- .
ble for this particular kind of men
dacity. I have marveled at the as
surance which has led the liquor in
terests to suppose that their vicious
misrepresentations would not be dis- .
covered untrue. So palpably false
have been their charges as to the
operation of the prohibitory law . in
Kansas that the liquor dealers' pub
licity has proven a boomerang in al- -most
every state where. I hey have con
ducted that kind of a campaign.
I write you at this time to advise
you that the advertisement of the Ne
braska Prosperity league' has abso
lutely no foundation so far as I am
concerned. ARTHUR CAPPER,
