Morning Grain Letter.
Chicago, July 13. We have receiv-
el about 100 reports this morning from
Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri
and Nebraska. Some damage to corn
by the beat. Not extensive as yet.
Feature of the reports Is the note of
apprehension regarding early rains.
Northeast Nebraska tend reports of
corn rolling and commencing to tassel.
The bad oats sections again repeat
their former poor reports. Many sec
tions of Iowa say corn doing well. As
a general proposition corn belt can
stand another week of dry, but would
be better for Immediate rains.
We have reports from southwest
Minnesota of wheat never better. Fea
ture Of past 48 hours has been the ap
pearance of 98 to 102 temperatures
over many sections of the seven sur
plus' corn states. Indiana, Iowa, Min
nesota and North Dakota have receiv
ed rains. Forecast for week Indicates
hot weather In the corn belt with wide
ly scattered thunderstorms. Much
rust in northwest and more damage
claims due. Wheat due to develop
rallies. Movement Is increasing. ,V13'
ible today if a decrease should not de
crease liberally. Corn is a rain propo
sition. If continued dry means fur
ther spurts of buying on small dips.
If weather continues hot and dry the
oats should advance.
Liverpool, England. July 13. Easy
American cables on Saturday were off
set here by continued unfavorable ad
vices from Russia and a comparative
small percentage Of the world's ship
ments destined to the United King
dom, with the continent absorbing
freely with the demand unabated.
Opening prices were unchanged to !i
higher with October leading." During
the morning there was decline on
American selling here and prices lost
U to '2. This. selling was augmented
by private reports received here of
rain in Canada. Foreign offers are
firmly held and disturbing reports con
tinue to come from. Argentine, but the
American movement and the good
grading is having its Influence. At
1:30 undertone was easy with prices
'4 to Vz lower than the opening and M
off from Saturday.
Corn opened higher on unfavor
able weather in America and later spot
advanced a further V with the under
tone firm. The latter advance was
due to light world's shipments, small
percentage to the United Kingdom and
rain in Argentina with firmness of C.
I. F. offers. At 1:30 July was noml
nal and spot V higher.
Drift of the Weather.
Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minne
sota, Iowa, Kansas Generally fair to-
night and Tuesday, somewhat cooler
North Dakota Fair tonight, becom
ing unsettled Tuesday; not much
South Dakota. Nebraska Generally
fair tonight and Tuesday! not much
Record Wheat Movement.
Chicago, July 13. Biggest winter
wheai movement on record Just com
mencing. European visible of around
62,000,000 very small, but continental
Europe is on brink of its harvest. Eu
ropean wheat may be 140,000,000 be
low last year. The United States prob
ably sold 75,000,000 new wheat abroad,
25 per cent of which will pass out via
Galveston direct from thresher.
Should the North American spring
wheat prospects hold for another week
the European demand will become
slow. Some damage In the northwest
and Canada. In 1904 black rust did
not sweep the northwest until after
July 25. Actual loss of the three big
states being about 60,000,000. Prom
ise being cut from 210,000,000 July 1
to 153,000,000 sept. 1.
Canadian oats promise probably 15
per cent below 1913. Movement of
winter wheat crop will likely exceed
last season by 40,000,000. The United
States is in a selling position. Lowest
prices due In August if no bad damage
in the north. Winter wheat crop is a
total crop in Itself. Some of the north
western correspondents express the
greatest wheat rust apprehension. Ral
Crucial corn making season here.
Recent descent of December corn to 54
revealed an unsuspected belief that
the lower fifties may represent cheep
corn until August weaCier is known.
Twenty to thirty per cent of the seven
surplus states dry, but crop generally
not on the danger line.
Position of July and September corn
sound on old crop scarcity. General
belief that new oats crop will not ex
ceed 1.100.000,000. New oats move
ment will be a bulge sale factor after
July 15 to 20. Provisions higher on
evidence of small live stock and cel.ar
supplies in southwest and Indicaticns
of small 1914-15 hog population.
Cotton crop possibilities raised to
13.500,000, but only serious bear fac
tor is the dragging world trade out
look. There are reviving ideas if a
10 to 15 point security advance against
the fall, based on the tl.00.000.000 ex
tra whet money, but the signs of
boom business continue to play hide
Any damage to corn will advance
oats. Corn scares certain, and the
corn world has shown its willingness
to buy December corn around the
middle fifties. No use bulling clover
seed at present prices. It is a time
to sell out your long holdings.

Alvine lost no time. He saw them
clamber over the back wall of the jail

to the railroad yards and it is thought
took the Crescent bridge to Davenport.
The police were immediately notified
and officials in towns nearby were also
told of the happening, but thus far no
arrests have been made.
While it does not matter so greatly
that the four minor offenders got
away, yet the officials regret that the
two alleged auto thieves were success
ful in their rush for liberty. At great
trouble and expense they were brought
back to Rock Island after having reach
ed the western boundary line of Iowa,
with the machine.
While the efforts to rcapture all will
be untiring, yet the bulk of the work
will center on the apprehension of the
auto thieves. All six if arrested, can
be sent up to the penitentiary for jail

IN THE EVENING
Change in Plan of Holding Ros-
enfield Series at Long
Thursday evening, July 16, the thira
of tae series of Rosenfield memorial
concerts will be held at Long View
park by Bleuer's band under the lead
ership of Professor Ernst Otto of Dav
enport. The program will begin at
i:30. Heretofore it has been the -,
torn to hold the concerts Sunday after
noons. If the first evening program
proves a success it is likely that more
will be arranged in the same manner.
Park Superintendent C. F. Gaetjer
says much depends upon the manner
in which the crowd observes the park
regulations. If the flower beds are
damaged there will be no more even
BEN GREET PLAYERS TO
BE SEEN HERE THIS WEEK
The Ben Greet Woodland Players,
with Ben Greet in the cast, whose
charming open-air plays have become
so popular throughout the country, will
be seen at the Outing club, Davenport,
Wednesday and Thursday of this
week. Perhaps no entertainment of
fered to the public, these days afford
such genuine pleasure as Ben Greet's
out-door presentations. They seem to
possess a quality of freshness and
spontaneity quite unequalled by any
form tt dramatic production. It has
been said that many people attend
these performances who rarely, if ever,
go to a regular theater.
It may be that this band of players
has acquired, through many years of
experience in this work, something
more of the buoyancy (it may be said.
without extravagance) and inspiration
of the master poet than comet to the
player under ordinary circumstances.
At amy rate there is absence of arti
ficiality and staginess in the plays
given "urnder the greedwood tree.
The characters appear as Shakespeare
drew them, and they come and go
through the pastoral scenes as natur
ally as life itself. This circumstance
lends the element of absolute reality
to Shakespeare, the lack of which is
unquestionably the commonest fault In

was borrowed money, and as security
for which I kept a trunk under the

which I had a perfect right to do under
the law. The case was continued until
this, Monday morning at 9 o'clock.
Meanwhile some had mislead the ones
who had to do with the publication of
the news in The Argus.
This morning when the case came
up for. trial I appeared and the prose
cuting witnesses did not appear. The
case against me was dismissed by Mr.
Edwards, the assistant state's attorney,
because there was no foundation for
it. I request that each of the papers
publish this statement and give it the
same public place among the news as
was given to the other Injurious report.
