from unchanged figures to .a rlss of 66
Although It was generally expected that
potting all classes ot freight on an equality
would help to remove trafflo congestion as
a whole, traders Inclined to a belief that
aa at least a temporary effect the supply
ot oan available for hauling grain wouto
be reduced and that receipts ot corn here
would be diminished. This prospect ap
peared to have considerable to do with talk
which became current In favor of a higher
maximum price limit. Under such circum
stance the late dealings were at virtually
the topmost prices of the day.
Oata largely reflected the aame influ
ences that ruled the corn market, besides,
country offerings o arrive were small.
Severing by 'shorts lifted provisions after
some weakness caused by declines in the

STRONG DEMAND FOR
President Hogan of Federal
Land Bank of Omaha Re
ports Active Market in
The Federal Land bank of Omaha
reports a strong demand for federal
farm loan bondt the last few days.
. "Something like $30,000,000 of fed
eral farm loan bonds have already
been sold by the several land banks
throughout the United States,' said
President Hogan. ,
"We think that probably the Fed-
era! Land bank of Omaha has mar
keted more bonds directly to its cus
tomer! than any other of the 12
banks. Our real estate security it
recognized as perfectly safe and in
vestors who have heretofore been de
nied the opportunity to invest in real
estate mortgage loans because of the
inconvenience of directly making; these
loans are buying bondt bated upon
these mortgages, which have been
taken tinder the direct control and su
pervision of the Treasury department
of the United Statet. -
"The demand for bonds hat be
come especially active among the big
business men of the four states of
this district.' We booked an order
Monday for $35,000 of bonds from
one individual customer. They have
proven attractive because they are ex
empt from all clatsei of taxes, includ
ing federal income and excess profits
tax. Many business men figure that
these tax exemption feature! and 4Vi
per cent interest rate, which is good,
considering the high-class nature of
the security, combine to make this in
vestment a splendid place to put their
1917 business profits."
Mr. Hogan stated that Louis W.
Hill, president of the Great Northern
railway, has recently invested $500,000
in these bonds.

Distribution is the thing. State Ad
ministrators concern themselves.-directly,
with nothing else. Production
is left for the Washington office to
handle. But the Washington office,
too, is mainly occupied with getting
coal from one point generally a sid
ing in a railroad yard to another
point say the furnaces of a hospital,
or the bunkers of a scout cruiser, or
the coal box of one of the 100 neediest
The fuel administration concerns
itself not with opening new , chan
nels for the coal trade, but with keep
ing old channels stretched wide open.
In most cases when the results it ob
tains fall short of perfection, It is idle
to try to pin the blame down to the
fuel administration, or to the rail
roads, or to any other tingle element
in the situation. ' .
That the fuel administration is Cop
ing with the problem successfully is
shown by these facts: that the nsvy
and the transports have been getting
all the coal they need, and of the best
quality, that the cantonments and mu
nition factories are kept well sup
plied, and that the railroads in this
time of the world's great need ire
carrying much the greatest traffic of
their history. .,
