WINTER WHEAT HITS
NEW RECORD PRICE
Both Wheat and Corn More Up
from tho Prices Paid on
MILLION SOLD FOB EXPOET
BY MAJORITY OF
(Catinaea from Pace Oaa.l
No. 2 hard wheat went to $1.90 on
the Omaha Grain exchange, a new top
price for this class of grain. The
greater portion of Nebraska wheat
this year is grading No. 2 hard, yet
generally the quality is not quite up
to that fetching the record price.
Another high record was made
when mixed wheat sold at $1.92. This
was for wheat grown out in the vi
cinity of Lodge Pole, in the western
part of the . state.
All wheat prices were 2 to 4 cents
higher than Thursday, the sales be
ing made arouna to i.yu per
bushel. The cause of the advance
was attributed to reports of heavy
frosts and grasshoppers doirg great
damage to the Argentine wheat crop.
Then, too, there were reports of an
enormous exportation, Omaha get
ting in on close to 1,000,000 bushels
bought for shipment to Liverpool.
Omaha receipts were ninety-seven
carloads, or something over ,1,000,000
' . Corn Advances, Too.
Corn followed wheat in the upturn,
E rices advancing 2 to 3 cents per
ushel and sellinu at 92 to 95 cents
per bushel. The corn of both the old
and the new crop sold at substantially
the same price. Receipts tor the day
were eighteen carloads.
Oats were strong and sold at 53 to
54 cents per bushel, an advance of 1
to Yi cents. - There is a tip out that
oats are due to a sharp advance in
the near future, all on account of it
being reported that the allies are in
the market for several million bush
els to be shipped abroad as soon as
steamer space is available.

of contests over one elector in each
instance. The eligibility of a demo
cratic elector in Texas has been ques
tioned because he is said to be an
office holder, and the federal laws
prohibit a person holding office from
serving as an elector.
One of the democratic electors died
in Washington just before election
dav and the party managers attached
pasters to the ballots substituting an
other name for his. The legality of
this procedure has been questioned oy
I the republicans. A somewhat similar
I case has arisen in West . Virginia,
' where one of the republican electors
I refused to run, and the republicans
I resorted to pasters bearing another
I flame in place of his.

there refused to concede defeat. They
seemed to base their report upon the
assumption that "something might

was told before he retired that Cali
fornia had gone against him, but he
had no comment to make.
There was much speculation today
among suffragists as to the part
played by women in the election. An
analysis of their vote was eagerly
awaited. While President Wilson lost
in Illinois and Oregon, he carried
Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah,
Colorado, Arizona, Kansas, Nevada
and California, the other ten states in
which women voted..
