Too Much Shortness In May Wheat
j St. Louis, April 7.—Moses Fraley, a
I well-known broker, is again in financial
j trouble. He had been the heaviest short
[in the May wheat market for a month

j and culminated today in an advance of
I two cents. The news of the failure caused

Spokane Falls, April 7. —Nineteen
prisoners confined in the county jail
piade their escape early this morning.
Immediately after the jailor made his
rounds at midnight, the bars were
wrenched off, and four prisoners crawled
through the break they had made. The
wick of a lamp burning in the window
sill, was turned up high, and a cry was
raised by the other prisoners for the
jailor to come and put out the light, or
the lamp would explode. Turnkey
Beard responded to the cries, when he
was felled to the floor by a blow on
the head from one of the prisoners.
The others then came out from their
hiding place, assisted in binding the
jailor with ropes and gagging him. After
liberating the prisoners in the upper
tier they made their escape, locking the
jail gates behind them. The jailor
lay in this position about two
hours, when one of the remaining pris
oners reached through the bars of his
cell and untied his hands. Sherill'
Hincheliffe was awakened by the noise
and quickly summoned a posse and
started in pursuit. At a late hour

speak on the subject of new
railroad extensions by the Southern

to be built north of Portland, Oregon,
nor was a long line in Eastern Oregon
contemplated. In his opinion it would
be a foolish thing to parallel the Union
Pacific's line in Oregon, for the same
reason that it would be foolish for
the Union Pacific to parallel the Central
line; neither enterprise wouLi pa3'.

Burlington, lowa, April 7. —A report
reaches here late tonight by railroad
wires that Prophetstown has been par
tially blown away by a cyclone and that
many people were killed. No other par
ticulars can be learned, as the wires are
now prostrated by the storm.
Inquiries sent in all directions up to 1
o'clock have failed to bring further par

The first report, through the railroad

Up to 3:15 a. m. efforts to get further
information about the actual state of

it is not likely anything can be learned
tonight. An extremely severe thunder
and lightning storm raged throughout
Northern lowa, Illinois and lower Wis
consin tonight, but no serious damage is
reported from any other point. This
leads to the belief that the report from
Prophetstown may he exaggerated.
Louisville, April 7. —It has jußt been
