The "Corn King"
AH Deals With Him
Tremendous Excitement in Grain
Market Followed. -
Chicago, Jan. II. A notice was post
ed tit the opening of the Board of
Trade today calling for tho closing
of nil open deals with Geo. H, rhilllps,
the former "Corn King."
A heavy call for extra margins Is
said to have been tho causo of tho
posting of the notice. Tlio ca)l was
innde yesterday afternoon. Bhilllps
mid his staff worked nil night over
the firm's books. ' The trouble Is said
to have been duo to UVi ccntsi break
In rye yesterday. Phillips is credited
with holding a Hue of 1,500,000 bush
els of this cereul mostly in Mny op
tion. The break yesterday was caused
by a sale of only 50,000 bushels.
Phillips is said to have on -his' books'
also from four to five million bushels
of May wheat and about 11,000,000
bushels of May corn. The effect of
the notice posted by Secretary StonQ
was instantaneous, the whole list
opening off sharply. Wheat opened
1 to Y lower; corn V to lc down and.
oats nearly a cent depressed.
Jacob Dinger, attorney for Mr, Phil
lips, gave out a statement' say lug thai
his client had been practically wiped
off the financial state. "He is broke,''
said Mr. Dinger. "Men whom he worst-'
el in former deals went after him
nnd they got him."
Mr. rhilllps, gave out a statement
ns follows: The amount iuvolyed In

My customers had their trades well
margined and if the trades closed out
today bring a fair price, 1 cum meet
all my obligations. I was long about
1,200,000 on rye, 500,000 ou wheat and
000,000 on corn and onts. Members
of the Board iutcrested In breaking the
rye market sent 'notices calling for au
extract margin at 10 per cent on ryei
This naturally caused selling orders
Monday, and forced the market down
H cents. This was dono In a moment
and the news which Hashed oyer tha
country caused consternation among
holders of rye contuicts who sold on
a weak market. A decline of one
cent in wheat coupled what rumors
reflecting ou my strength resulted In
unusually heavy calls for margaliis.
I was for tho moment unprepared and
tho only alternative left was to close
out I have no excuses to offer and no
complaints to make."
All grains were panicky today and
tho tnullng was furious, bears anil

was a general decline In price.

A Wonderful Spring Whose Water Made Money
For a Boston Township Farmer.
Since Summit county has gained
prominence In the salt business, it may
bo interesting to know something about
the' tlrst salt industry In the comity.
This flourished, awny back In tile
thirties, a mile southeast of Peninsula,
It was originally a "deer-lick," but
hunters found out that tho water run

boiled down nnd converted Into salt.

near tho spring, purchased a large ket

that for which It has given.
A meeting of the Library Board will
be called as soon ns Mr. Carnegie's

then steps will be taken at once to
get the building started. A number
of plans are already being considered.
One that Is especially popular is a
