AT KANSAS CITY
Owner of Polling Place Takes
Advice Too Seriously

Kansas City, Mo., Sept. 4. A
squabble enlivened the republican
women's county primary election,
which was held in Kansas City and
Jackson county, to select members
of the women's republican county
.committee. The "row" happened in
one of the city. districts where a resi
dence was used as a voting place.
The mistress of the honse belongs
to one local faction of the party, and
her opponents to another.
The woman in whose house the
ballots were being cast, called up re

she'd have to get out, but she says
she won't. What shall I do?"
"Get a piece of eas oioe and run

An hour later the owner, whose
husband is a wholesale plumber,

Washington, Sept 4. The Po
lish reply to the American note so

the opinion of diplomatic Washing

It is pointed out after a study
of Poland's reply, that the records
reveal an inconsistency in Poland's
policy as defined to this govern
ment. The Warsaw foreign office
asserts that Poland is fighting bol-
shevism and not Russia, Btot it is
recalled that the military campaign
carried on against KiefKwas con
nected with a definite scheme of
creating .an . independent Ukraine

War Department to
Decide Upon Action
In Prison Council
Topeka, Kan., . Sept. 4. What
further action, if any. may be taken
as a result of the investigation of
the prison council at the disciphn
ary barracks , at Fort Leavenworth,
probably will be determined by the
War. department pr the Treasury
department at Washineton. accord
ing to F. L. Campbell, clerk of the
United States district court, in whose,
office the report of the investiga
tion was hied.
The report contained a statement
by Colone Segwick Rice, formerly
commandant of the disciplinary bar
racks, that the prison council was
established on orders from the ad
jutant general of the army. The
prison was ruled by the council from
January to July, 1919.
The failure of the system,' accord
ing to witnesses, was due to the
"tyrannical and overbearing" power
assumed by the council, whose pun-
ishments often resulted in "beatings
an"d black eyes." '

Boosts Prices of Wheat
Chicago, Sept. 4. Export buying on a
big scale has put decided strength this
week into the wheat market. Compared
with a week ago, wheat prices this morn

corn was down c to 5c and oats off
c to 2c. In provisions the net dif
ference for the week ranged from $2.70
decline to-25c advance.
Although at tbe beginning of the week
gossip was current that foreign govern
ments were having some difficulty In fi
nancing their purchases of grain, It soon
became apparent that any obstacles had
been surmounted, 'men mere were- pre
dictions that the southern hemisphere
would be unable to ship wheat freely from
now on until after December 31, and re
ports spread that a holding attituae nan

Drougth reports from Argentina tended
further to emphasize bullsh sentiment and
so likewise did estimates that the sur

led to something or a reaction,
x In the corn market, receipts did much
to weaken prices. Oats were depressed
by notice of an Increased visible supply.
Lards and ribs received support from
business with Europe but distress selling
caused a severe drop in , pork.

-Chicago, Sept. 4. Heavines in
the cash grain markets was reflected
in futures, especially in September
corn and oats and in December
wheat. Prices'were higher early,
but declined and closed well toward
the inside of the day with a weak
and distrustful feeling. There are
estimates of 1500 cars of grain in
for next Tuesday as there will be no
session on Monday, Labor day.
Closing trades were at losses of
lfi2c on wheat futures with cash
prices off 35c. September corn
lost lc and cash l2c, while dis
tant future -were Jc higher.
Oats were off VAc lot the near de
liveries and fjic for May, while Sep
tember rye is Zc lower and Decem
ber up lj4c and barley 12J4 lower
for the day. .
Liquidation was on in September
deliveries of coarse grains all week
and corn was off 7c with cash off
10c. Oats lost 3 for. the Septeem
ber and about 8c for cash, while
the deferred futures are ?4lc lower
on corn and 124, off on oats,
as compared with a week ago. Sep
tember rye is 2$4c lower and De
cember 5c higher, while barley is
2jc lower, September leading.
Cash Markets Off.
The most Important factors in the
wheat market were the Increase In the
hedging sales, decrease tn outside buying,
an absence of larga export, business ana
a decline of t5o In cash prices, with
premiums off round 3c, while outside
oash markets wero off 35c.
The market felt the absence of export
buying and of increased hedging pressure,
which, combined with reports of rain in
central, western and southern Argentina,
where It was most needed, made the trade
forget about the strong statistical situa
tion and the decrease of 8,113,00 bushels
In primary recelpta for the week, as com
pared with last year. (
September cash corn declined rather
sharply, but failed to affect the new crop
diltverles. There was scattered liquida
tion in the September and also selling of
that delivery and buying of December by
spreaders, which narrowed the difference
to 18c at the last, against. 21c Wednes
day. . The bulk of trade wfes of a local
character, and conaderablS evening up
for the double holiday was under way at
the last, making tne final rauy. con
siderable apprehension exists as to the
(outcome of the new crop, due to wet and
cold weather over the west and southwest.
. - Oats Of f Sharply.
Hedging pressure and stop loss selling
carried September oats off sharply. At
cne time It showed 2c under the black
board quotation for the December, but a
strong rally camel at the last, and the
finish Was at c discount. There was a
lack of aggressive buying In all deliver
ies until toward the last. The bulk of
buying toward the last was to take profit
on bids. Receipts, 14 cars. "
A little exnprt business was put through
In rye. Thari was further selling of Sep
tember and buvlng of December to change
hedges. Premiums in the spot market
were unchanged, with No. 2 over Septem
ber, with rales at $1.871.90. Re
ceipts. 1 2 ' cars. -
Barley declined ll2c, demand being
slow and offerings fair. Spot sales were
at $1.02 1.16. Receipts, 10 cars.
The strong statistical position In wheat,
with comparatively small receipts, the
primary movement since July 1 having
been only 7o. 485, 000 bushels, compared
tfl 132,511,000 bushels last year, tends

Others believe that the export demand has
taken more wheat than tne primary mar
kets have received In the last two months.
The exports also largely exceed primary
Any let up In the export buying of
wheat Is expected to encourage Increased
selling by speculators. ,
A point made by one of the largest
corn traders Is that with cash coJI and
SeDtember declining, there ia no use try
ing to hold up the distant futures. Part
of the weakness and break of nearly
cents In September corn during the week
and 11 cents from the high point of the
previous week Is attributed to tne sell
Ing out of SeDtember and buying of De
comber by spreaders. The December has
only declined 4 cents and May 5 Vi
cents during the 11 cent decline In Sep
tember. A cash handler says with no prospects
ot accumulating wneat stocks at central
markets, before January, December de
liveries In all markets are likely to au
tomatically aa.iust themselves.
''There is modification of bearish sent!
mcnt In the corn crop news, says Thomson
& McKlnnon. The distant deliveries are
at such a big discount that there Is
growing Idea that the producer will not
accept the prevailing prices In as much
as it is so far below the leeding value.
Farmers are holding back around 600.-
000,000 bushels wheat for higher prices,
according to estimates made from govern
For some time past the holding tend
ency has been a feature in sections where
farmers were financially able to do so,
and it Is understood that In the main
they desire to secure $3, or about 60 cents
more than Is obtainable at terminal mar
In dlscvsslng the corn situation Charles.
sincere 4 Co. say that ir there la to bs
a severe slump In prices it will probably
start from higher figures than now pre
vail. They believe that the strength in
the wheat situation will also have con
siderable influence on coarse grains.
"Weather conditions will probably con
tinue a dominating factor until the corn
crop Is secured," said W. C. Welgand,
with Simons, Day 4 Co., in his weekly
rovlew of the situation.
