Chicago, Sept. 17.--New upward swings in the value of corn took place today largely as a result of symptoms that distressed liquidation was over for the present. Closing prices were strong. 2%c to 3c net higher, with September at $1.40 1/ to $1.40' and December at $1.22% to $1.23. Oats gainei"' 1c to 11/2c. In provisions the outcome ranged from 12e decline to a rise of 55c. Notwithstanding demoralization o, foreign exchange and despite weak ness in the hog market, corn prices at the opening slanted toward a high. er level and, with only brief interrup tions continued to increase in strength. Shorts covered freely on the advance and there was persistent buying from other sources, including cash interests and the general pub lic. Domestic shipping business was said to have been the most active in months. Oats ascended with corn. Houses' with eastern connections were con-i spicuous on the bull side. In the provision market quotations averaged higher, owing mainly to the strength of cereals and to a 2,000, 000-pound decrease of the stock of lard. Cash.

SEND YOUR1 JOB WORK TO THE BULLETIN 0 L Today We Celebrate 0 0- eicautiul Eclipse of the Sun at Rich mond, Va. A total eclipse of the sun is the most impressive of natural phenom ena. For the sun is the monarch of the planetary system, and the source of our life. Prolonged dark ness would mean world-extermina tion. It is not without profound eig"'ifie"ene that the solemn prophecy in the Bible of Christ's second coming and the final judgment will be pre ceeded by "the sun shall be dark-' ened and the moon shall give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven." (St. Matthew's Gospel.) On Sept. 17, the day we celebrate, in 1811, there was a startlingly beau. tiful eclipse of the sun in Richmond Va. How can an eclipse of the sun be "beautiful?" Listen! What is an eclipse? In simple language i! is occasioned by the passing of the moon-full disk of the moon---ble tween the sun and the earth. The eclipse is partial, if the moon coversl only a portion of the sun. It is total if she covers it entirely. In the lat ter case the superb phenomen is (to tse Milton's word "inexpressible.'' For, gradually, as "totality"---in the •astronomer's language, approaches, and darkness begins to creep up over the face of living things. and ovel the personality of the beholders, an •i.we----unlike any other-seizes na ture. A rustling is heard, as if pro ,est. in the branches of the forest growing into a sinister plaint. It is an organ-music in the minor key The frightened dog runs to his ken nel. The barnyard lows for help. There is a quivering of the air. The lunar shadow sweeps over land and sea with apalling speed. Slowly Ihl gigantic circle of the moon erases Ipon high heaven the majesty of the sun. Stars begin to appear. And as darkness that is more mysterimtt ihan midnight falls upon the earth, when the moon cuts off the last di rect ray of sunlight then instantane ously appears around the disk of our satellite a brilliant, flickering, white halo charged often with rosy light. It is like an enormous luminous en velope around the sun. It is the mys terious "corona." Its streamers loss up, millions of miles in extent, pil lars of flame that deepen into bright red or purple color. The beholder lholds his breath. Who made-con trols-guides-this mighty spec tacle? One line haunts the memory. As Coleridge cried, in the valley of Chamonix, watching the sunrise on i the forehead of Mont Blanc: "Utter forth God, and fill the hills with praise." \'OTING( CONTINUES.

"No getta job," was Mieressa's re ply, said Perso. "I killa one man." "Thin. according to t'erso. Meressa related the tale of th e shooting much as the other witnies.es have described it. Mecessa told tle story alto to Sam Marieno, the latter eltamed. It was Perso who "'squealed" to the offi cers first about Metressa's con fidences. Marieno had1 denied that Meressa talked to himl about killing a man in Butte. but when told that t'erso had disclosed what he kuew. then under the questioning of the officers, Marieno also loosened up. Both men retold in dramatic Italian style this. mlorninlg t hle stoli.es which Meressa hau related tl t hnl. It is the idea of the oft icers, sub stantiated by the testimotny offered this morning by the tw\\o Italians that Meressa and his companion were strangers to Thomlas. that they were out to hold somebotdy up for the purpose of repllenishing their de pleted pocketbooks, that they hap pened upon Thollmas by accident, as he was going home late in the eve ning, that they atltelimpted the holdup and were resisted by 'IThollas, who carried a revoller. Several witnesses testified yes terday to seeing the revolver duel in the dark. All of t heim were soitie distance away, howtver. They beard the reports and saw the flashes from the gunls. ,Mrs. 'sMartini, wn\o runs a rooming house at Ii West Ga-i lena street, testified that Meressa and George Collins had a room at her place for two or three days im mediately after the shootinig. Mrs. Mabel ltaire. who runs a rooming house at 504 East l'arlt street, Anaconda, said that Collins and Meressa came to, her place on Friday following the murder-tabout five days after. Meressa got her to mend a coat for him. It had a hole in the shoulder which might have been a bullet hole. The coat was offered in evidence and identified by Mrs. Haire. Mrs. Anna Smolloctk of Anaconda said that Meressa asked for a job at her place a few days before March 15 and was put to chopping wood. Shortly after lie left, saying he was going to Butte to get a job. A few days later he returned again and left two suitcases at her house, saying: "I come bclt front Butte. I I can't get job in Butte." Deputy Sheriffs \Vhalen and I O'Connor' told of arresting Meressa in Anaconda a week aftler the shoot ing and that he had a wound like a bullet hole in one leg. A later examination in the county attorney's. office disclosed another wound in the shoulder. A good many witnesses are still to be heard. The trial will probably last several days. POSTPONEMENT OF STEEL STRIKE IS ALL A OREAM (Special United Press Wire.) Pittsburgh, Sept. 17. - I)elegates who are attending the conference of steel workers in the district ad journed at 2 o'clock for luncheon, and will resume at 4 p. m. Chairman Fitzpatrick stated that no announce ment would be forthcoming until late tomorrow. lie said: "The postpone ment of the strike of the steel work ers is a dream. Further than that I have nothing to say. The strike is going ahead as per schedule." WITNESS SAYS (Continued from Page One.) but that lie had been prevented by his superior officers from rendering a full report of his findings to head-I quarters at W\ashington. Kerrigan quoted Alexander Poul son of the aircraft spruce comn'ulis sion as telling hiln that. on less money than the government paid for the construction of John D. Ryan's 3S5 miles of side road, which is said to have been built expressly for the Milwaukee railroad of which Ryan is a director, hie could have built the road and cut and logged 20,000,000t feet of spruce in less time than was required to build thle road. Poulson, said Kerrigan, declared that he was hindered in his efforts by a man "named H utchinson." The witness presented evidence to show that while the Warren Spruce! company of Portland, Ore., was capi talized for only $200,000, its profits; from government business were1 enormlous. Kerrigan's evidenct showed that the company had made; between $500,000 and $600,000 on government contracts. The follow ing memorandum which Kerrigan said he had seized in the Warren company's offices was introduced and written into tihe conimmission's pro ceedings: "Stock certificates-The company is incorporated for $200,000 more fully defined as follows: "Fifty per cent of the net profitl; to go to the Wa. C. company and 501 per cent to the U. C. company. In regard to the latter holdings we can RIGHT NOW is the time to exchange your fifty-dollar Liberty Bonds for fifty dollars _worth of stock in the Butte Daily Bulletin.

Kerrigan told the coiniuittee that it was his opitiion t hat e doc.ulei tf.tnt ltquoted above was a part of a letter sent to the W~urren ('onstructioll company of Iloston, whiich. he said, was the parent company of the War en Sprl'uce compalln ly.
