GOOD TIMES RETURNING.
Dissipation of political uncertainty
Is one of three reasons given by Hen
ry Clews for the general Improvement
of business conditions for the period
ending July 11. Tho other two are:
faorable Government crop reports
and an easy money market.
Clews' comment on the dissipation
of political fear Is perhaps tho most
Interesting to Hawnll because It con

mental influence upon business that
is generally supposed. It is only when
some grave Issue was at stake, such
as tho slher craze In 18'JG, that busi
ness has been seriously in danger.
The memory, however, of such an ex

necessarily stimulate doubt when oc

tion will be done In a conservative
manner is a most happy ono for this
Improved traffic returns during tho
coming weeks ns a result ot the harv

"Another satisfactory Indication
was in bank clearings, which In June
showed a loss ot only 22 per cent.
compared with losses of 2S or 30 per
cent, nnd over in earlier months. Tho
losses In bank clearings nre at last
becoming less pronounced In tho Eas

Other valuable features ot this
midsummer circular have to do with
general business conditions, and they
are given to show that the men who
have been boosting the country and
predicting good times, are prophets
with good common senso and "busi
"Good news of the right sort was
forthcoming In the form of favorable
ciop reportB," says Clews. "Tho July
Government estimates Indicated 2,
726,000,000 bushels of corn, which
would bo 130,000,000 bushels more
than last year and has been exceeded
but once, and that by the bumper
crop of 2,927,000,000 In 1906. Tho
wheat crop Is estimated at 692,790,
000 bushels, or 58,000,000 bushels In
excess ot last year, and closely np- tania St.
proaches tho largest crop on record.
The promise for oats is 1,012,000,
000, a bumper jleld and comparing
with 754,000,000 bushels a car ago.
In addition to a full grain harvest
the cotton crop promises to bo abund
ant, prevailing estimates being about
13,000,000 bales; and we have al
ready secured a good crop ot hay,
"The fruit crops, too, aro better
than usual. Tbero Is, ot course, tho
probability of these estimates being
reduced by unfavorable weather.
July and August are often months of
deterioration, and In September thoro
Is always danger ot early frosts to
both cotton and corn In tho northerly
sections ot the producing States. But
these two leading crops aro not so
backward as a year ago; and, with
larger acreage and better condition
than existed at this tlmo in 1907,
there Is ample ground for hopefulness
regarding tho crop situation. Since,
prices for nearly all agricultural
products are high, especially corn,
our farmers are assured ot another
prosperous year. Cotton nnd wheat
are cheaper than a year ago, but cm
rent prices still afford a liberal profit
to tho grower.
"Outside ot the agricultural situa
tion there are also visible signs of lm-,
luuvcuicut. iui, uui; n ujiiuuiBiiu in
terview regarding the steel trndo had
a good effect; for while it was evi
dently made as hopoful as possible, It
really had n basis of facts, inasmuch
at the reduction In prices stimulated
orders, nnd placed the steoi situation
on a sounder basis. Perhaps new or
ders have corns in less rapidly than
expected; because the railroads per-
who evidently wanted others to take
risks which they themselves were un
willing or unable to assume."

Preston Is a natlo of Memphis,
Tonn. Tie located nt Goldflcld a
couplo ot )vars ago. Ho was selected
ns an agitators by tho Independent
workers of the world and soon proved
himself a lender with that organlza
tlon. During March, 1907, when tho
disturbances of Goldfleld were at their
height, n meutlng of the I. W. Ws. was
held In Miners' Union hall thero and
tho cnBo of John Sllva, a member of
tho union running n restaurant In tho
camp, was taken up.
Preston is Chosen.
It was nltcgcd 8lln wns running nn
unfair plnco ami was not standing by
his obligations to tho Union. It was
proposed that men be stntloncd to pa
trol tho restaurant, nnd, If necessary,
force Sllva to coino to the terms of
tho union. When lots wcro drawn In
sco to whom the patrol would fall,
Preston and Smith received tho ap
Smith took tho first watch, but, ac
cording to tho eWdenco introduced nt
tho trial, Sllva refused to leuo tho
rear ot tho restaurant nnd gavo Smith
no chance to talk with him on tho mat
ter. That night, after Preston had
lellovrd Smith of tho watch. Slha
went to tho front of his placo of busi
ness and was immediately approached
by tho union patrol, Words followed,
and during the argument Sllva was
shot down, supposedly by Preston.
Both Preston and Smith wcro soon
placed In custody, and at tho trial they
were dofondod by tho best lawyers tho
Western Federation of Miners could
Eccurd. Tho evldenco Introduced bj
the prosecution went to show that the
murder was of an exceptionally cold
blooded nnd premeditated kind, and
tho sordid of the Jury wnB guilty,
Guilty of Murder.
Preston was found guilty of murder
In tho second degree, and Smith of in
nlutary manslaughter. Tho latter re
ceived a Icntcnco of 10 years.
Through their attorneys, O. N. Hilton,
special attorney for tho Western Fed
eration of Miners; Patsy Bowler nnd
T. J. Hangon qf Crlpplo Creek, an ap
peal was mndo to tho Supremo Court
for a now trial.
This appeal was fought by Attorney
General Stoddard on tho ground that
It was dcfectlvo and the court was
asked to dismiss tho appeal, which it
did, at tho same tlmo affirming the
lower court. A petition for rchcnrln
has been filed with tho Supremo
Court, but no action has jot been tak

lishers of tho United States a con

tho chronicle ot his big-game hunt in
tho wilds of Africa has gono to tho
firm of Charles Scribnor's Sons ot

lieved the story of tho big hunt and
the long trek through tho Junglo will

perhaps the largest royalty ever paid
