GRAIN AND PROVISIONS.
Chicago, Oct. 2.-Predictions that
banking arrangements to grant com
mercial credits to Europe would soon
he completed helped to give an up
ward swing to the corn market.
Prices, although unsettled at the
close, were 1% c to 2c net higher,
with December at $1.261/ to $1.26%
and May at $1.244 to $1.24%. Oats
gained 3%c to 1%c. In provisions
the outcome ranged from 25c decline
to 5c advance.
Notwithstandiing that. the corn
market wavered a little at the open
ing and also at the close, sentiment
during the day as a whole was
strongly in favor of the bulls. Pro
nounced advances in the corn market
did not take place until gossip be
gan to circulate which aroused hopes
of a better outlet for the United
States general export trade, and
therefore substantial, although indi
rect, benefit to holders of corn. As
sertions that forthcoming monthly
reports would sustain the govern
ment crop estimate of Sept. 1 failed
to act as an offset.
Seabord buying continued to af-1
ford independent strength to the oat
Lower quotations on hogs tendedI
at first to weaken provisions. Later,
however, there were rallies, owing to
upturns in grain and to signs of lard
sales to Europe.

THE VALLEY OF HELLi
o --_ --_ _---__
(Steel Strike Picture No. 1.)
The Valley of Hell began
High in the pleasant hills
Of West Virginia.
The autumn sunset
Touched trees and rivers
With a golden PEACE,
Yet even here
Were the first ugly signs
Of greed for PROFITS!
Of soap and chewing-gum
Stared large and hideous
At the fading day---
And from this point on
The descent was swift
To the great black PIT
Curve after curve
We rattled dizzily down
By the iron road,
Into the smoky valley
And the growing night,
Lit only by the glare
* * *
Of the red furnaces
Which now, thank God,
Are growing slowly dark
* * *
For the first time
Since they were lit with fire!
For the MEN
In the valley of HELL-
Twelve hours a day
Tending its white-hot fires,
And twelve hours resting
Under its pall of cinders
The men who live in hell
There is new WAR in hell,
For the slaves of STEEL
Shaking their chains noisily
in their master's face!
There is new LIGHT in hell,
The terrible whiteness
Of giant searchlights,
HIiding the guards
And machine guns!
There are new DEVILS in hell,
Riding into the crods,
Smashing the faces of women!
There is upheaval
And white TERROR,
For the greatest
Of all the devils of GREED
He who makes and rules
* * *
This Valley of Hell
From his THRONE
In BLACK Pittsburgh!
And he faces at last
MAN, his SLAVE.
Whose flesh lie has devoured,
Whose mind he has stuntel,
Whose soul le has ground
But who shall yet ARISE
Even out of the valley of hell
Say you saw it adver*tsed in the

Cockroaches and St ay Ihogs.
Alderman McKeon (drt'\ a striking
picture of the quarters in twhich the
fire laddies await the imminent
coming of winter.
"C >ckroaches and verminl." cried
McKeon, "gambol about th1e fire sita
t'ions like rats in a cellar. \Vhen the
firemen charge these posts. they
sinlply scatter and take refuge in
the cracks of walls and eviling until
the attack is over. The men are sick
and tired of being lang thd at by the
cockiroaches. The stlatios l tie un
sanitary and almost untinhabitable,"'
'said MicKeon, "the windows rattle
with every blast and darned near
fall olt of their frames. 'Tlhere are
holes in the buildings thrtough which
a dog could crawl."
Mayor's Sky Over-cast.
Mayor Stodden, in response to
McKeon's appeal, was both pessim
istic and sarcastic at the start but
woun'l up with a soft answer, and
the threatened squall blew over.
"We'll fix the stations so that the
dogs nay be kept out," said Stodden
"if you'll only give us time. We
know the places are not all that they
should be, and we have already dlone
a lot of repair work on them, and
will do more. We think the fire
men are entitled to the best and
most comfortable quarters possible;
but we don't think they are in seri
ous !anger from either cockroaches;
or stray dogs. Give us time," pleaded
the mayor, "we are doing the best
we can. Every building and every
shed that the city owns is falling
down. Every roof leaks. Every
truck and every vehicle comes to
pieces if a single bolt is lost. Every
automobile and every motorcycle re
fuses to go when it is needed. And
we have no money to tdo anything
with. Give us a little tine, McKeon.

his resignation from the council. It
was accepted. Mr. IChapmani's

The resignation of Fred Buck, as

and a Note of thanks tendered to hinm

Buck has accepted an appointment
from the state.

The ways and means committee,
through its chairman, Aldermani
Hirdlaslle, made a partial report on
City Auditor Crunirine's recent
iecommendations, which had beeni
ttl'erred to the committee for con
sideration. The feature that Hard-I
castle dealt with last night was the
auditor's suggestion of increased
salariu for certain city officials.
Hardcastle reports that while the
committee had sympathy for those
who needed greater salaries, the
committee held that the Montana l
statutes, which were quoted, for
bade any changes of salary during
the tenure of office of the officials
affected by the change, and, also,
that the statute provided a certain
prescribed time and method for the
city council to use in changing
salaries of city officers, and hence it
was ulp to the city attorney to first
instruct the council in the law before
changes could be made--even though
they might be desirable changes.
The ways and means comnlittee was
instructed to make a complete report
on the auditor's recommendation at
the next regular council meeting.
Resolutions for forming three new
improvement districts-small jobs
were passed. Bonds for 14 special
improvement districts which have
been formed this last summer and
fall, were voted.
Reports of various city official.

But the ladies of the Consumers'

waiting for Mayor Stodden to make

failed them. At 11 o'clock he stated
that while the appointment was
made all right, he would withhold
