YIELD A RECORD ONE Manitoba Wheat Crop Good for Fifty Million Bushels. SOME FALSE NEWS SENT OUT jPiot a Word of Truth, in the Report* of Heavy Damage by Hunt and Heat. Special to The Journal. Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 6.—The report re ceived in Toronto that the Manitoba crop is damaged by rust and heat, that the estimate Is lowered to 42,000,000 bushels, and that the grain is shrunken, has re ceived an unqualified denial from all quarters here. That there is some slight rust in one or two spots is a fact as well as other isolated instances of damage in certain parts, but no crop in the world has ever been taken off the ground entire. Nicholas Bawlf, president of the North ern Elevator company, on behalf of him self and his company, officially denies that the company sent any wire to Toronto derogatory to the Manitoba crop or esti mated output. Premier Roblin also spoke very strongly on the subject, and con demned the practice of sending unfounded telegrams abroad, especially those belit tling the present crop.' The Canadian Pacific railroad report also shows a splendid crop In sight, and out of 113 telegraphic reports from its re spective western stations only two of them report rust, and that slight. They ■were Elkhorn and Cypress River. One other, Sewell, mentions slight damage from grasshoppers, while three others, — Elm Creek, Nesbitt and Rathwell,—say that heavy storms lodged the wheat. Only one branch, Calgary and Edmonton road, makes a poor showing; all the other nine western lines send favorable reports, with the above slight exceptions. R. P. Roblin, minister of agriculture, was shown a copy of the telegram purport ing to have been sent by the Northern Elevator company, stating that the Mani toba crop was seriously damaged by heat and rust, and that the yield would be re duced to 42,000,000 bushels. He appeared very much annoyed that so misleading and untrue a statement should be sent east. He said that it was Impossible to judge the motive of the senders, but they evidently must have some ax to grind, as no public good could result from a state ment so unwarranted by facts. Mr. Roblin further said that his department had been visited within the last few days by many prominent farmers from all parts of the province, and in not a single case was any statement made that would justify the report alleged to have been sent. Special inquiries, he said, had been made regarding the way in which the grain was filling up, and it was perfectly satisfac tory. From the information in his de partment it would appear that Manitoba would have about 50,000,000 bushels of a wheat crop. He reckoned that there were 2,000,000 acres in wheat, averaging 25 bushels to the acre, and was the larg est yield an acre since crop statistics had been compiled. The crop is also ripening under the most favorable conditions pos sible. Nicholas Bawlf of the Northern Eleva tor company said he knew nothing of the dispatch in question. Neither he nor the company sent it. "So far as the company is concerned," he said, "I know nothing about it. There is some slight damage to the crops from rust, but it is not worth mentioning." Mr. Bawlf appeared sur prised at the contents of the telegram, in the face of encouraging reports received from time to time, and agreed that the report was exaggerated and unfounded. SHOCK THRESHING GENERAL Knndlyohi'i Wheat Yields Will Run From Ten to Twenty Bushels. Special to The Journal. Willmar, Minn., Aug. .6.—The threshing of wheat from the shock has become gen eral in this locality. In some parts of the county the yield will fall far below that of previous years on account of the ex tremely hot weather. Especially is this true in the sandy portions. The berry shrunk to such an extent on sandy soil that it has reduced the average yield in the county. Some place the yield at fif teen bushels to the acre, while others pre dict eighteen. One farmer in the town ■hip of a Kandiyohi says he will have an average crop of twenty bushels to the acre, and others whose farms are on clay soil predict even more. In Mamre the crop will be unusually poor, and the yield "will fall below twelve bushels to the acre. Lake Lillian —and in fact the entire south ern portion—sustains its reputation in good yields. Reports of twenty-five to thirty bushels to the acre are very rare. Rye, oats and corn have come out allright, The cool weather has been encouraging to harvesters. EWE WAS SURPRISED K. D. Crop an Eye-Opener to a Van Dnsen Man. Bpecial to The Journal. Grand Forks, N. D., Aug. 6.—General Managei Ewe, of the Van Dusen Harring ton company and Superintendent W. H. McWilliams, of the National Elevator company, owned by the Van Dusen com pany, spent several days in the country surrounding the city inspecting the crop situation. Mr. Ewe said what he saw was a revelation to him. He found that wheat was filled to the very tip of the heads, and that as the stand was fine the yield would be much heavier than many had es timated. He has spent some time in other parts of the state and said that as a re sult of the trip his estimate of the crop of North Dakota had been raised very ma- ■Mr- '■/Clk> -^H ... - .. : 'When a man is drowning his rescue is a question of timely help.

He said the idea entertained by many that the crops ofthe etate generally had been damaged by heavy rains earlier in the season was a mistake. The two gentlemen were driven in all directions from thie city by Thomas Beare, manager of the Van Dusen offices in this city, and were given an excellent idea of the crops. Mr. Ewe said he would esti mate the crops in this vicinity at some thing better than twenty bushels to the acre. This will be a very satisfactory yield and will result in the best times ever experienced in the state. BETTER THAN EXPECTED Moody Comity Fields Turn Fifteen and Even Twenty to the Acre. Special to The Journal. Flandreau, S. D., Aug. 6.—Grain cutting in this county (Moody) was completed lest week, with the exception of flax; and sev eral fields of wheat and barley have been threshed from the shock. The yield is better than was expected. Many fields of wheat are going fifteen bushels to the acre and some are turning out twenty and over. Barley is going from thirty to forty. The late cool weather and light rains have helped flax and corn wonderfully. During the month of July, according to G. A. Per ley, government weather obeserver, the thermometer registered 100 and over on seven different days, and 90 and above on twelve different days; the highest was 102, on the 23 and 24. GOVERNMENT SUMMARY Favorable Progreii of llurve*tiiig in Spring Wheat Fields. Washington, Aug. 6. —The weather bureau weekly report of crop conditions ia as follows: With more moderate temperatures and good rains over a large part of the drought-stricken area the weather condi tions of the week ending Aug. 5 were the most favorable to agricultural interests In the states of the central valleys that have prevailed since the latter part of June. In the states of the Missouri val ley the severe and protracted drought has been very largely relieved, but to the eastward of the Mississippi and north of the Ohio river only partial relief has been afforded by insufficient showers, the drought conditions in the upper valley being more serious than at any previous time this season. The east gulf and por tions of the south Atlantic states and Texas also need rain. In the middle Atlantic states and New England and throughout the Pacific coast districts the week has proved generally favorable. In the great corn states late corn, —and fortunately a much larger portion than usual of this year's crop was planted late, —has experienced a general and in some cases a decided improvement, but the early corn has been practically ruined. In Kansas the cooler weather with better distributed rains, decidedly improved conditions in the eastern and western divisions of the state and slightly benefited the central portions, many of the eastern, western and southern-central counties late corn still promises from one-fourth to half a crop. In Nebraska the improvement has been less marked, and is confined largely to the northern and extreme eastern counties. In lowa the late-planted is making a better showing, and, under favorable con ditions, the rest of the season promises a considerable yield of sound grain; the extent of irreparable damage in this state cannot yet be estimated. In Missouri, where good local showers fell except in portions of the southern section, late corn has been much improved, but elsewhere it continues to deteriorate. In Illinois corn has greatly improved in the north ern part of the state, but has deteriorated in parts of the central and southern por tions. in a few favored districts of northern Indiana corn is still promising, but else where the upland and early planted is al most beyond recovery; with immediate rains about an average crop of lowland and late planted would be produced. Over the greater part of Ohio corn condition has been materially lowered, a portion of the crop in the southwest part of the state being past help; in northeastern Ohio its condition is more hopeful. In Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia, the condition of corn has been materially reduced during the past week. In the middle Atlantic states an excellent crop of corn is now practically assured. : The weather conditions in the : : spring wheat region have been : : very favorable for harvesting, : : which is nearlng completion in : : the southern districts. Some : : damage has resulted from hail in : : South Dakota and the unfavora- : : ble effects of recent hot weather : : in North Dakota are becoming : : apparent. Some grain in the last : : mentioned state has been badly : : lodged. • In Washington a splendid crop is prom ised, and in Oregon the yields are better than were expected. The oat harvest is mostly completed and the yields are generally unsatisfac toriy. A very general improvement In the con dition of cotton over the greater part of the cotton belt is reported. In the Atlantic coast districts tobacco has made very favorable progress, but in the states of the Ohio valley it has made little growth and is badly in need of rain. The outlook for apples continues very discouraging, a very inferior crop being generally reported. Plowing for fall seeding has made de cided progress in the Missouri valley and Atlantic coast states during the week. SOUTH DAKOTA YIELDS Enconraging Reports From Thresh ers in Nearly All Sections. Special to The Journal. Sioux Falls, S. D., Aug. 6.—Threshing is this week becoming general in the south half of eastern South Dakota, and has commenced in a few localities in the northern portion.

If this rule holds good, every Great Combine of Grocers Philadelphia, Aug. 6.—A gigantic combination is about to be formed with a capital ization of $100,000,000, to be known as the National Wholesale Grocery company. There are about 2,700 leading grocery jobbers in the United States, and the plan is to unite under one control 10 per cent of the entire number. A general meeetlng is to be held in New York in September to complete a permanent organization.

WISCONSIN'S SHOWING Corn Rated at 7O and Oats at SO— Losses by Drought. Special to The Journal. Madison, Wis., Aug. 6.—The state crop report for July showing conditions to Aug. 1 was issued to-day by the secretary through the state board of agriculture. It is based on reports from correspondence all over the state. The estimate of a full crop is: spring wheat 92, barley 90, oats 80, corn 70, tobacco 52, potatoes 78, wild hay 90, apples 20. The loss of the corn crop in the seven teen southern counties of the state af fected by the severe drought is estimated at 12,400,000 bushels and the loss of oats in eight counties at 10,375,000 bushels.

The Minnesota climate and crop service bulletin for last week, issued by the weather bureau, contains the following summary: During the week the temperatures were moderate, except in southern and southwest ern counties on the Ist, when they were from 90 to 99 degrees. There were very light and scattered showers in southern counties In the middle of the week, but elsewhere there has been no rain. Harvesting is practically fin ished in the southern half of the state, ex cept aa to flax, some of which is now being gathered. In northern counties the late wheat, and that sown on spring-plowed land, Is heading slowly and irregularly, and the grains on the lands overflowed earier in the season are very poor, but otherwise all the grains are filling well and ripening nicely, and ripe grain is being cut all over the Red River valley. Barley harvest began in Kitt son county July 27, and wheat and oat har vest Aug. 1. Stacking is well advanced where harvest is finished, and threshing from the shock has begun. After the rains of July 24 to 28, corn seemed to improve somewhat, but it is still thought to be considerably injured, and in some fields it. is being cut for fodder. In northern coun ties flax is poor; in the south there are some fine fields, and many that are Much of the barley was ripe, or nearly* ripe, before THE MIJNJNEAFOLIS JOUKNAL.

A BOOST FOR BARRY Dr. Sweeney Finds That the De- fendant Was Insane. FIRST EXPERT FOR THE DEFENSE Dr. Moore of the Jamestown State Asylum to Testify for the State. Special to The Journal. Langdon, N. D., Aug. 6.—The defense put its first insanity expert, Dr. Arthur Sweeney, on the stand yesterday after noon and the last of numberless hypothet ical questions had not been reached at to-day's nOon adjournment. The introduction of expert testimony by the defense is being fought by At torney Cochrane with every available ob jection, Judge Kneeshaw generally sus taining him. Three medical experts re tained by Barry are here, while the state relies solely on Dr. Moore of the James town asylum. Acute epilepsy is Dr. Sweeney's opin ion of the form of Insanity that affected theancestry of Defendant Barry. Dr. Sweeney in answering an hypothetical question covering various peculiar acts of Barry, as narrated in the testimony, said that he was able to form the opin ion that defendant was suffering from epileptic insanity on the night previous to and on the morning of Jan. 8, when he killed Mellem. Barry's periodical insanity at other times fwas testified to by the witness on opinions formed from the testimony as submitted. The trial is likely to drag along in a manner that will have but little interest. Even the attorneys are unable to pre dict when the close will be reached. Earlier Proceedings. . At the opening of the afternoon session Thomas O'Rourke testified as to Barry'B acts on the trip to Grafton, heretofore told, and to his apparently insane conduct at another time. The questions which the defense desired to ask Dr. Sweeney were then propounded and ruled out on the ground that there was nothing in evidence at the time to justify it, the court saying that if they became relevant later in the trial they might foe admissible. The questions cov ered the construction of the nervous sys tem, its functions, heredity and transmis sion difference as to various phases of in sanity as to liability to outbreak on occa sions of grief or disgrace, ac to there be ing such diseases as epilepsy, its cause and symptoms. Defense then outlined to witness testi mony already introduced as to the strain of epilepsy and insanity in Barry's ances tors and relatives at times, reading exten sively from such testimony and then asked if conceeding this evidence to be true, TUESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 6, 1901.

During the argument on an objection to the question, Barry's mother attempted to break in to the controversy, but was re strained. The question was admitted, although the court said it had grave doubts as to its admissibility. Dr. Sweeney answered that his opinion was that Phillip Barry had epilepsy. He likewise gave his opinion as to the disease with which the other persons re ferred to were afflicted, and then described the disease of epilepsy. Minor Epilepsy and Insanity. Dr. Sweeney gave his opinion, baaed on Barry's acts, the injury to his head, his sleeplessness and irritabilty, etc., that he is a victim of minor epilepsy and insanity. Some outbursts indicated insanity, others delusional insanity, others petitmal or minor epilepsy. Certain testimony indi cated epilepsy, independent of ancestral conditions. Witness gave his reasons technically for his opinions. "During an attack of epileptic insanity," he added, "the mental faculties are lost end a man acts automatically and after ward may have no rememberance of his acts. During the attack, he in no part reasons, or wills or acts in a conscious way."
