Those Prevailing on
Omaha, May 29, 1917.
Today's trade In cash grains was duller
than It has been for some time and while
the receipts of all grains were extremely
light the demand waa vary alow and there
was hardly enough stuff sold to give a
definite Idea of the range of prices al
though the whole list, with the exception
of oats, was substantially lower. A few
cars of No. 2 hard wheat were sold at a
late hour and brought from $3.70 to $2.72,
giving an approximate range of 104c lower
on this grade of wheat while one eale of
No. 4 hard was made at 92-65, but this
stuff was very poor la quality and the
ordinary samples of this grade would prob
ably be worth considerably more than this
The corn market generally was quoted
about lo under yesterdsy's market and the
bulk of the offerings sold on the decline.
Atmoit all of the sales of the better grades
of corn were made at $1. 6101.61ft, but
Quality considered, the yellow sold at a
small premium over the white and mixed,
tome of tire No. S yellow aellfng at 11. 61ft.
while the No. I grade or wnito ana mixeo
corn sold from $1.6101-61.
Gala sold fairly readily at practically
unchanged prices, hut one sale of No. $
white was made 4)1 1 a one-fourth cent ad
vance. This car, however, waa better than
the ordinary run of stuff.
Rye and barley were quiet, with light
offering!, and these markets were quoted

, CHICAGO GRAIN MARKET.
Trading In Pit Shows Decided Weakness
During Day After Opening Strang.
Chicago, May It. Grain prices today de
veloped material weakness after an earlier
show of etrength. The abort Interest had
been greatly reduced while the temporary
bulge waa In progress. When longs at
tempted to unload further they found but
little demand. Tha wheat market depended
largely on the action of coarae grain, and
was unsettled at the finish, with July at
99.03 and, September at 91.93. Corn closed
o to 3ftc down and oats off o to lc
In provisions the outcome waa an advance
of 43o to 9&e,
Bearish Influences, which had an Inde
pendent effeot on wheat were chiefly favor
able crop reports. A leading expert eent
word that continued cool, showery weather
waa bringing out the Kansas crop wonder
fully, ana mat yieias were uxaiy u oe
much larger than had been expected. An
estimate also Was furnished tbat the Mis
souri crop would be four and a half million
bushels larger than In 1918, with Idaho.
Oregon and Waahlngton also Increased
Trade In corn was large, especially while
shorts were covering on a eharp reaction
from yesterday's big break in prices, unex
pected scantiness of offerings from the coun
try had caused temporary anxiety on the
part of shorts. Crop prospects remained
good and shipping demand slow, Oats
swayed with corn. Assertions of a revival
in export call were not confirmed. Foreign
inquiries for offers of meats and lard ha
rouoh to do with the advance la provisions.
Offerings were light.

BUTTER HIGH FOR
THIS TIE OF YEAR
Creamery Men Zzpect Prices
to Drop Somewhat in a
Short Time, Says
In Omaha No. 1 creamery butter is
selling at 41 cents a pound, wholesale.
This is the highest price ever attained
at this season of the year. Even at
this price, the same grade of butter
is 2 cents cheaper than in Chicago.
The boost in butter prices is going
to be short lived, in the opinion of
the Kirschbaum creamery. Prices
are going to drop off within a few
days, according to Mr. Kirschbaum.
Speaking of present conditions, he
"While it is not likely to go down
to the prices of several years ago,
there will be a decline in a short time.
The high prices now are due to the
demand being in excess of the supply.
Butter is a commodity the price of
which is regulated almost entirely by
the supply and the demand.
"The spring has been cold and
backward and the pasturage is much
later than usual. As a result, cows
are not giving the normal quantity of
milk for this season of the year, and
consequently farmers are not getting
the normal quantity of cream. As
soon a- this quantity reaches normal,
then the cream will commence to ar
rive at the creameries. The butter
stocks will increase and prices are cer
tain to decline.
, "We don't look for any low prices
during the coming summer, nor do
we anticipate that prices are going to
be abnormally high. The number of
cows in the country is probably the
same as last year, and with a favor
able season, the supply of butter
should be about normal.
"There is nothing to indicate a
heavy export demand, owing to the
war. This will cut down foreign sales,
but ut home they are going to eat
butter in about the same quantities
as during past summers."

SUES TO RECOVER
Question 1b Whether There Was
More Than Sixteen Per
Cent of Water in the
The suit of Kirschbraun & Sons,
Inc., Omaha butter makers, against
Ross L. Hammond, formerly United
States collector of internal revenue at
Omaha, is on trial in federal court be
fore Federal Judge T. C. Munger pf
The plaintiff is seeking to have re
funded $687 which the United States
commissioner of internal revenue
compelled it to pay. October 25, 1911,
on the ground that it was manufactur
ing adulterated butter.
The reason for the government's
claim was that eight boxes of butter,
containing 240 pounds, and a tub of
butter containing sixty pounds were
taken from the plaintiffs establish
ment, analyzed and found to consist
of butter containing more than the
legal 16 per cent of water.
The plaintiff paid the government
tax under protest. While the gov
ernment test of the samples of butter
taken indicated that they contained
more than 16 pet cent of water, the
