June 12.?Com adracoM 3\4c to 4e today. Bear ?horts were completely routed, many bring driven to cover at sharp lo?es. The June run of or?rn seemed to be at an end and normal receipts were expected. Cash corn waa lo ta 3o higher. The "Crop killer" wu in evidence in the market. Telegrams chased each other from nearly every section of the corn belt. They told of wk weather and ravishes of cat worm*, aimy worms and chinch b*igs. Reeeeding will be neoeasary in scattered sections. One reason for an expected decrease in corn movement was that the goTemment will not permit corn or other train t<? be stored when elevator room is needed for wheat Higher prices would have prevailed had it not been for heavy selling of longs. Little oorn was ] Bold in the way of potting out short lines. I and no sales worthy of mention* \?ere recorded | in the way cf putting hedges against corn arpected to oome forward. Some selling was j ?aid to be on account of oountry speculators. There were move bulls than bears in the oata market, and net gains of 1% to 2H were shown. ' htrength in corn was a steadying factor in oats. J Rains were reported where badly needed in the I Northwest Breadth of the market showed im- | provement and small lots were reported taken | Tor the interior. ' Provision# advanced and lard went to a new i high price. Pork shewed gains of 70c to $1.36; | laid, TTHc to 92ttc. and rib*. 37Ho to 66c. Grain and provision futures here today: Prev.

Charles M. Bohmb la presumed to have had exclusively tn mind th? steel man uf act urine industry of the United Statea when he aald at the Pan-American Commercial Conference that the great development of the future of the United Statea la going to be upon the Eaat coast. For there l? unquestionably to be a very great development In Industry, agriculture and commerce throughout the entire length of the Mlsalaalppl Valley. Per haps Mr. Schwab regards New Orleans aa properly to be Included In the East coast Furthermore, thoae who have recent ly visited the Northwest have spoken with some amazement of the develop-' ment, not only agricultural but in dustral, which la In progress there. We are also to see enlarged exploita tion of the mineral reaources of the Rocky Mountain region. The pacific coast is already feeling the throb of commercial and Induatrlal expansion. Bright Filve la Nslk. Therefore, when Mr. Schawb spoke of the future great development in the United States aa certainly to take place upon the East coast he muat have had in mind the steel Industry. Certainly, he had In mind enlarged International trade with South Ameri ca. The possibility, even probability of an increase in our trade with the continent to the south of us has recently loomed large although It has been somewhat overshadowed by the problems relating to the establish ment of peace and the financial condi tions which will arise when the United States undertakes to life devastated Europe out of the morass. Before the outbreak of the European war, iMr. Schwab had already turned his attention to South America. He needed oro of a high and special quality for use in the various ateel manufacturing plants, especially the Bethlehem, which are Identified by his name: About the time when other American capital interested In mining and smelting obtained extraordinary concessions from Chill for the ex ploitation of very rich copper mines that are some distance from the coast, Mr. Schwab also obtained concessions which enabled him and his company to exploit the very rich iron mines situated near the coast of Chili.. Chill Ore on Delaware. When it was announced that Mr. Schwab and his associates would not only develop these mines but would bring the ores in specially constructed vessels from Chili through the Panama canal to a convenient point upon the Delaware river, some of his friends wondered whether he were not un dertaking too much. Many thousand miles separate the iron ore mines of Chill from the Dela ware River, whereas it requires only a few days to transport the Michigan and Minnesota ores through the Great I>akes to the steel mills of the Ohio Valley, and to Gary, it will on the other hand require at least a month or six weeks to bring the ores of Chill to the Delaware River. Mr. Schwab, however, was never dismayed by any of the critical sug gestions that were made by his friends. He was looking for exclu sive control of almost Inconceivably great deposits of iron ore which pos sess certain qualities that make it especially available for the manufac ture of steel. Schwab** Big Adventare. Now that peace Is substantially as sured and there is no need for further concealment Mr. Schwab felt Justified in telling the South American dele gates to the Pan-American Commer cial conference what he has In con templation and In fact whi.t he al ready has underway, respecting the mining and shipment of iron ore from Chili to the Delaware River. It was a very great expense that the ex ploitation of these Chilian ore fields entailed. But Mr. Schwab did not hesitate to provide all the millions of capital needed. If the project proved a failure it might invole some embarrassment, probably disaster, for his steel plants. But he was convinced that it could not fail, and on the other hand would furnish valuable aid in making his steel or ganizations as great as any In the world. He told the delegates that he risked all his fortune, all his reputation, and the existance of the Bethlehem Steel corporation In this South Amer ican adventure. He has created the largest docks and shipping facilities that are to be found any where in South America. He has under con struction twenty cargo carriers so built that each one will be able to transport 20.000 tons of Iron ore on each trip and he purposes utilizing the Panama Canal for this service. These vessels should brlnp many mil lion tons of ore to Mr. Schwab's plants, In a single year. V. 8. Capital FlMda Chill. Undoubtedly, Mr. Schwab has In view the development of a very large export trade In the commodities which his various steel manufacturing plants produce. If he can get his raw mater ial from South America at compara tively low cost, then the proximity of his various plants to deep water will make it all the easier for him to main tain honorable competition with other steel manufacturing corporations In the markets of the world. The flow-of American capital Into Chill alone, represented by Invest ments in the copper and the Iron ore properties, has already been very Ultimately It will mean for Chill many millions a year Mr Schwab's Iron njines are so situated that he can do with the ore what is done in Northern Minnesota That Is practically to transfer It at very low cost from the mines to the docks of his steamers. It la said that his ore can be carried to the vessels from the mines by means of gravity The copper mines of Chill are so far re moved from the coast that It has been necessary to construct trana honu, jellow dunned, smaller aim H.t> 23a24c; duck,.

"HOIXANO" PROHIBmON SPREADS USE OF OPIUM IN U.S. More opium per capita?from ten to eighty times u much?le con sumed annually In the Utaited State* than in any other country from which reliable records can be ob tained. This is one of a series ot startling disclosures made by a committee appointed by the Secre tary of the Treasury. Concerning the possible effect of prohibition In relation to the use of habit-forming drugs, the committee says: "What effect, if any, nation-wide prohibition will have on the situa tion could not be definitely deter mined. The consensus of opinion of those Interested in the subject ap pears to be to the effect that the number of addicts will increase ss soon as the prohibition laws are enforced. These opinions are based, for the most part, on the theory that drinkers will seek a substitute for alcohol, and that opiates and cocaine will be found most satisfactory for this purpose. "This opinion apparently receives some support from investigations made in some of the Southern States where prohibition has been In effect for some years. It has been noted that in these States the sales of narcotic drugs and cocaine have greatly increased during this period."
