THE GRAIN SUPPLY.
i-fUtloal Report of tka Department of .ArLultnr A Great Quantity of Cora la farmer' Hud-TlM Wheat Supply. Washington, Msrcb. 1L The lUtlf Coal report of the Department of Ajrl- culture (or March relates to the distri Latloa and consumption of corn and wheat. It makes the proportion of the ooraropin the hands of growers 45.9 txiroent., or 070,000,000 bushels, and of "-9 wheat crop 8L9per oenfc, 150,000,000 The stock of corn on hand Is the . largest ever reported in March, of the largest crop, after the mildest winter. The average of eight annual returns is 677,000,000 bushels; that of last year 787,000,000 bushels. The average onsumption to March 1, is 1,143,000,000 tatshels, a figure only exceeded last year and In 1880. The proportion of mer chantable crop of 1889 is 85.7 per cent, xoeeded in recent years only by those -ef 1884 and 1880. The average value of .all corn on the 1st of December was 28.80 -per bushel. The average for the 1st of Xfarch was 27.9o for merchantable and 19.2o for unmerchantable, making an 4aggregate value of $35,000,000 less than the December estimate. The wheat crop of 1889 was exceeded j the crops of 1SS0, 1883 and 1884. The average remainder in the hands of grow lers on March 1 for ten years past has wen 130,000,000 bushels. The average crop during this period was 450,000,000 bushels. Only in years having a product snuch below this average has the March remainder fallen below 130,000,000 bushels, with the sole exception of 1886, -when a crop of 450,000,000 bushels fol lowed one of 357,000,000. Most of the wheat in farmers' hands la in States which have no surplus over onsuption. or in those in which much the larger portion is consumed at home. The six spring wheat States have only 4&000.000 bushels. 18.000.000 of which will be rerttircd for spring seed and the remainder is scarcely more than four months' consumption of their popula tion. Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illi nois, Missouri and Kansas, the only wheat States east of the Rocky Mountains contributing to commercial distribution, have only 00,000,000 bu . ahela half of which will be needed at ' &ome and a part of the remainder is commercially unavailable at present prices. It is seen, therefore, that the available supply for exportation and for nome distribution to July is small. The depleted farm reserves have been meas urably filled, except in a few States, but it will require the pressure of high prices -to squeeze any considerable proportion of them into commercial distribution.

STRUGGLE WITH A MANIAC terrible experience of a Chicago Wocaaa - With aa Eaeaped Laaatlc CmcA eo, March 8. Last evening Mrs. Mary retcrson, weary from her day's work, sat by the kitchen fire to await the coming of her husband, when the frontdoor opened. Supposing it to be her husband, she . got np to greet him, but before she reached the hall door It was thrown violently open and a strange man with a ferocious glare in bis eyes confronted her. For a moment the two stood facing each other, the woman almost paralysed from fear and the madman gloating over his intended victim with glittering eyes. Then tho maniac drew a revolver and leveling it at the woman's head, fired. With a superhuman effort she sprang to one side, and then, with a bound like a tiger, clutched him by the throat It was a fight for life, and even the madman with his awfsl strength, could not loosen the woman's grip. In vain did he strike her with his revolver. He tried to bring the muzzle in line with her head that he might blow her brains out, but she hugged him so closely that he could not, and the weapon was again discharged into the wall. The woman clinched her hands the tighter, and the man's eyes began to start from their sockets, while his face changed from red to a livid purple and his tongue rolled out as he gasped for breath. The veins of his forehead swelled almost to bursting, but she held on, knowing that her life depended on her grip. Hack and forth across the room they struggled. Chairs were overturned and the table, set for supper, was upset The madman had ceased to strike her and all his efforts were to break her grasp on his throat IIo began to weak en. At last tbo blood spurted from his nostrils and the sight of this was more than the poor woman could stand. She relaxed her hold and fled from the bouse to the nearest neighbor's and the police were called. As soon as he was freed from Mrs. Peterson's grasp, tho madman slunk to the attic of tho houso. In a short time officers arrived and the maniac was found in the attio. lie had lost his pis tol 'in his struggle with Mrs. Peterson, but after another contest he was finally overpowered. Nothing could be learned from the man, however, further than that his name was Albert Jenssen and that he asylum. After closely examining him he was taken to the detention hospital. NOLAND RESIGNS. TheMlwioarl State Treasurer Suddenly Ten ders His Resignation rending the Investi gation of Ills Hooks. Jeffebsox Citt, Mo., March 8. At four o'clock yesterday .afternoon Mr. E. T. Noland entered the Treasury Depart-1 ment Governor Francis was in the private office, and walking up to him, Mr. Noland handed him an envelope. 'Here is my resignation, Governor," he said, and turning, walked out To His Excellency, Davla B. Francis, Gov ernor of Missouri: Jeffeusok Citt, Mo., March 7. 1890. Sir: I herewith hand you my resignation as State Treasurer of the State of ailssourl. Vory re spectfully, E. T. Nolajto. What led Mr. Noland to tender his resignation can only bo surmised as he declines most positively to talk. He would only Bay last night that he was preparing a statement to give the press. What the naturo of this statement will be can not be foreshadowed at present Mr. Noland was engaged last night upon the statement he will make public- j to-day. He counseled with friends and ' there is an undercurrent of anxiety , about the capital as to what disclosures may bo forthcoming. Governor Francis has not accepted the resignation of Mr. Noland yet He will move very cautiously in order to avoid complication. The Attorney-General is looking up all the points bearing upon the case in order to decide what disposition should be made of the resignation. Some hold that it is a constitutional right of a Btate officer to resign at any time and under any circumstances, while on tho other hand others contend that while under suspicion Mr. Noland's resigna tion can not be accepted. It is believe that the action will only serve to com plicate matters and involve intricate legal questions. THE DEAD ROBBER. Identified Beyond a Ktaubt as Shannon Bob Ison, of Homewood, Kin. Mebidex, Kan., March 8. Great ex citement has prevailed in this little city ever since the killing last Sunday morn ing of the Valley Falls bank robber. The authorities have been keeping his body from day to day, hoping that some one would come and identify the body and give it a burial. It has been almost a daily occurrence for some one to ar rive who thought they could identify it, but np to yesterday no one had been able to do so. 1 Yesterday afternoon A. JL Shaw, Isaac Shaw and JL W. Lemon arrived from Homewood, a small town near Ottawa, Kan., and each identified the outlaw be yond question, his name being Shannon Bobison and his home at Homewood, Kan., where he leaves an eighteen-year-old wife and one child. Bobison some two years ago married a Miss Shaw, Ihen sixteen years of age. and engaged in the mercantile business and was also the village postmaster. It is said he had always been considered honest and honorableand was, np to the time of his bank robbery, considered a constant church member, belonging to the Baptist denomination.'
