Cattle There were 13,000 cattle again
this morning, making receipts 47,000 for
the three days, and desirable beeves on
the early trade were selling steady with
yesterday. Good to choice westerns
bringing $15.00 to $17.60 and medium
kinds from $12.00 to $14.60. Butcher
stock was slow, but steady, choice kinds
changing hands at $9 00 to $11.60. with
medium kind from $8.28 to $9.00. Stock
ers and feeders were steadier to easier.
Hogs There were 113 loads here today,
estimated at 8,000 head. Few hogs sold
early to both shippers and packers at
steady prices, but the market soon weak
ened gradually slipping downward until
shippers were 1015c lower and packers,
1520c lower than yesterday. Bulk of
sales was $19.65 19.80. with a top of
Sheep There were 138 loads of sheep
reported tn today, estimated at 37,000
head, making th run for the week, 132,
864 head. Yesterday's late close was th'e
weakest time of the day and today's open
ing was largely In line with closing prices
yesterday. It Is doubtful If feeders would
sell above $16.60 tlhs morning and down
to $13.60. Fat Iambs market Is generally
steady. These prices on feeders show a
decline of 60 75c for the week.

Killing Frost In Iowa Bullish Factor in
Corn Market; Close Unsettled.
Chicago, Sept. 18. Likelihood of delay
on shipments from the Interior mors than
counterbalanced In the corn market to
day the bearish Influence of a renewal of
peace gossip. The finish was unsettled,
varying from half cent decline to c
advance, with October, $1.62 W 1.52H and
November. $1.4901.49. Oats gained
Hc to ho and provisions 2 to 85
A majority of trader finally adopted
the opinion that during the next few days
a decrease liii the movement of corn from
rural points would not be surprising. In
this connection, It was said, country rail
road agents were not yet familiar with
the process required to obtain permits
for shipments, and that a falling off in
arrivals here might be looked for, tnstesd
of the enlarged receipts which yesterday
were predicted. Another bullish factor
wa a killing frost in northwestern Iowa,
but estimates quickly became current that
more than 80 per cent of the whole United
States crop was now safe from frost, and
that within a week 10 per cent additional
weuld be out of danger. Bears then msde
the most of peace talk until general at
tention focussed on the prospect of dim
inished supplies.
Liberal sale to Georgian Bay ports
strengthened oats.
Improved cash demand gave an up
ward slant to provisions.

Reaction From Liquidation
Gives Upward Swing to
Market; Many Issues
Make Advances.
New York, Sept. 18. Reaction from the
recent heavy liquidation carried some
prominent issues steadily upward in the
stork market today, presumably on the
theory that a generally oversold condi
tion existed. Professional buying In vari
ous quarters, together with liberal short
covering, furnished a foundation which had
not been In evidence for some time. An
other Influential factor was the grati
fying war news. Msny of the stocks
advanced 1 to 4 points, some reaching
new high ground.
The upward swing was preceded shortly
after the opening by profit taking from
last night's closing advances as there was
no confirmation of yesterday's rumors
which sent the market up on reports that
the German emperor had abdicated. These
losses were quickly recovered, active pur
chasing of oil stocks, which have been
persistently strong of late, Imbuing the
general list with strength.
French government 5Vis established a
new high record at 100.
Liberty bonds displayed a good tone
and other issues were not essentially
changed. Total sales, par value, were
United State bonds (old Issues) were
unchanged on call.

Checks Fly Hither and Thither
for Garage and Diamonds
and Automobiles; In
vestigation Starts.
Sheriff Conlon and A. G. Brunrr
of Fremont, assisted by Omaha de
tectives, are combing the city of
Omaha in an effort to find J. -P.
O'Brien, one of the most picturesque
of the frenzied financiers who have
ever visited Dodge county.
They want hinr to account for a
car he had sold, for numerous bad
checks he had floated, and for the
purpose of straightening out one of
the most curious business muddles
that has ever occurred in that thriv
ing city.
J. P. O'Brien came to Fremont a
few days ago and, because of his
affability and his apparent prosper
ity, soon made many friends.
He told a firm of real estate deal
ers there, it is alleged, that he had
been an adventurer in old Mexico,
and despite the unsettled conditions
in that revolution-torn country, he
had been enabled to amass a fortune.
Bank Owes Him Money.
O'Brien, in his conference with
the real estate nien, exhibited a
sight draft drawn on an El Paso,
Texas, bank, with telegrams of veri
fication, showing that bank indebted
to him for more than $14,000.
He said he was tir.ed of roving
about the country and was anxious
to settle down in some enterprising
city and engage in business. Fre
mont seemed to have the "pep," he
explained, and was his ideal of a city
in which to retire and still be in
The real estate firm happened to
know of a good opening. It was the'
garage of A. G. Bruner, and they
took the man from Mexico to Bru-j
ner and it did not take long, to
make the deal.
O'Brien gave a check drawn on
the Bank of Nickerson, Neb., for
$10,591, and assumed possession of
the place. He showeed his ability
as a business man by at once hav
ing all of the stocl insured and Bru
ner, with the check in his pocket,
was looking for new places for in
vestment. Advertised Change.
O'Brien advertised extensively in
the papers, the business change
that had been made.
Tuesday night he went to the jew
elry store of Grover Spangler and
bought a diamond ring for $650, giv
ing a check on the Commercial Na
tional bank for the same. Then he
went to a clothing store and pur
chased $140 worth of clothes, de
ferring payment until later in the
Spangler became suspicious of the
check in his possession and did not
give O'Brien the diamond until he
could investigate. He went to the
Commercial National and found that
O'Brien had been there during the
dav and had deposited a check for
$7a0, which he claimed he had re
ceived in payment for a car pur
chased from his newly acquired gar
age. I he check was made out by
J. C. Ord. As a result of the jew
eler s suspicions, it was found that
the First National bank, on which
the check had been drawn", had no
depositor by the name of Ord.
Check on Wrong Bank.
When confronted by Spangler,
O'Brien said there must be some
mistake, that Ord had intended to
give the check on the Nickerson,
Nekr, bank, and the check was re
turned to him.
Investigation proceeded as a re
sult of the transaction and O'Brien,
becoming alarmed, went to his gar
age and took out a Maxwell car,
which he sold at Dodge. Later he
returned and got an Allen car which
he drove to Omaha and placed in the
Service garage, where it was re
covered Tuesday night by Detectives
Danbaum and Murphy.
In the meantime O'Brien managed
to hide himself somewhere in the
city. Bruner, the former proprietor
of the garage, has the check for $10,
591 in his possession and is at sea
as to whether he or O'Brien is the
owner of the business and he is
very anxious to meet the man so as
to be able to settle the perplexing
Only Best Quality of Heavy
Beef to Be Supplied Army

ity will be supplied the fighting

New U. S. Order Finds No Con
gestion Here; Ship-
ments Equal to
By order of the U. S. Railroad
Administration, and because of lim
ited storage capacity, an embargo
was placed yesterday on all' grain
shipments consigned to Omaha,
Council Bluffs, Kansas City, and
other points in the grain belt.
As a result of the embargo fu
ture shipments of grain to these
markets will be made on a' permit
basis. These permits will be issued
in co-operation with the Food Ad-
A specially appointed grain con
trol committee will receive these
permits, which will be issued to the
shipper or the agent at the point of
origin of the shipment. Providing
storage can be given at destination,
the shipper or agent at point of ori
gin will be so notified, and the
shipment may be made accordingly.
While Omaha, theoretically, comes
under the provision of the embargo,
it actually should have little effect
on the movement of grain from the
country elevators to this point, ac
cording to a statement issued by
the Grain Exchange yesterday.
"Omaha starts under the new
regulations without congestion,
while other markets are not so for
tunate," says a bulletin issued at the
Grain Exchange. According to the
bulletin, during the 30-dav oeriod
from August 15 to September 15,
7,986 cars of grain were unloaded
at this point, and there were 5,777
cars shipped. Heavy shipments are
being made from Omaha to interior
points, and that there will be ample
facilities for handling the regular
amounts of grain due this market.
is the opinion of Omaha grain men.
