Minneapolis, May 4.—Wheat: There was evidence today, that foreIgnci-3 were again in the market tor North American wheat and although Winni peg was closed, some business was re ported from that point. No quantity WHS given out at the other points, but exporters were buying wheat in small quantities throughout the session This coupled with the strength in Mav wheat in Chicago, served to hold the Minneapolis market firm all day. There Is nothing in sight to create a radical change in value in either direction We continue our former policy, buying on breaks and selling on bulges. Corn—We believe the corn situation is working more bullish. The bearish eect of the Argentine crop is growing Stale, and cancellations are reported from that point. Argentine crop tn Liverpool is sharply higher and should tiie advance to a competitive noint With the United States, and draw sup plies to Liverpool instead of New York dealers in this country would have to look sharply for enough corn to supol^ Uieir wants. It is very evident the •American supply 1b verv short We Would buy corn on the breaks. Oats—Seem to have passed into *oorl h#nds on May deliveries.

Miss Mary Jorgenson, bookkeeper at The Courier-News for several years, was recalled., to the witness stand thi morning when Judge Young commenc ed the rebuttal for the plaintiff in The Courier-News-Guild-More case before Judsre Pollock in district court. The defense rested about 11 o'clock when Counsel Pollock concluded with several witnesses heard this morning. It is believed the testimony will all be in this afternoon and that this case which is being watched with such great interest throughout the state will reach the Jury by tomorrow eve njng or not later than Wednesday morning. When Miss Jorgenson was recalled to the stand, after the rebuttal had started, she told the incidents of the midnight call of Glenn R. Townsend, former city editor of The Courier News, whose testimony about this visit was heard 'mid excitement and hilar ity Saturday afternoon. Called at 1:30 O'clock. She said phe was out of the office part of the afternoon of the day Mr. Townsend had called. At 12:20 o'clock that night she siid he telephoned her saying he wanted to see her either that night or the next morning. She said she asked ifcim if it were about Mr. More. The witness said Mr, Townsend told her it was about Mr. More and that it was important. She said she told him he could me up to the Anderson resi dence then in that event and that he answered he would be right up. She said he did not come until after the courthouse clock had struck 1:30 and that it was three minutes after Several times, she said, he asked if anyone could overhear them and she told him no. She said this interview lasted about twenty minutes all told. Called Her Again. The witness said early next morn ing at 6:30 o'clock Mr. Townsend call ed her on the telephone again. This time she said he told her he had something else of e\'en more import ance than the night before to tell her. She said he wanted to know if she would meet him that morning at the N. P. depot. Miss Jorgenson said, while she told him she thought he certainly must have told her everything he wanted to tell her at midnight, when he called, that she agreed to meet him at the station, and set 8 o'clock as the hour for the meeting. She said she went to the station at the appointed hour, accompanied by fir. Anderson, but that Mr. Townsend was not there. Interviews With Mr. M«re. Miss Jorgenson also testified about two interviews she had with Mr. More since this action was started. One of these was in the office of Tom Sullivan in the A. O. U. W. building along in February, and the other was in More Bros, office shortly before the trial be gan. Mr. Sullivan here mentioned was former advertising manager of The Courier-News and not George Sul livan, the circulation manager, who testified Saturday morning. At Mr. Sullivan's office, Miss Jorgen son said the interview took place in the evening. She said she was sum moned there by telephone and met Mr. More, who. she said, told her he had asked her to come there because the Guilds seemed to always monopolize her time whenever he went into The Courier-News office. At that interview she said Mr. More told her he thought Dr. Guild was very foolish to bring this suit, that it would certainl hurt the paper and that the only thing which was not as it ought to be was the $1,000 entry. The second interview she said took place in More Bros., office on Front street. On that ocasion she said Mr. More told her Dr. Guild had threaten ed to shut down the paper, and that if he did, Mr. More wanted her to keep on at her Job and speak to the other employes to keep at their posts and to go on getting out the paper as he did not want to lose his franchise. About the Entry. Miss Jorgenson testified again this morning about the $1,000 entry. She said when it was made that Mr. Bak er was nowhere around, as Mr. More had testified, that she and Mr. More were alone and made the alteration on the books. She said there was no reference to any checks being drawn to make this correspond on the books. She said Mr. More never said Dr. Guild wanted this change made. Charles Morgan Called. Charles Morgan, formerly connected with The Courier-News under Mr. More's sole management and prior to that with The Forum, was another witness for the plaintiff for the rebut tal this morning. Mr. Morgan testified that he receiv ed a telephone call from Mr. Parker, in the employ of the defendant at More Bros, office, the evening before Miss Jorgenson was first called to the wit ness stand. He said he was asked to meet Mr. More in front of de Lendrecie's store. When he appeared in front of the entrance of the deLendrecie store, he said, Mr. More came out of the store and asked him to walk down Front street ahead of him to More Bros, of fice. The witness said he followed his instructions. At More Bros.' office he said he went into Mr. More's private office, where oresently Mr. More joined him. It was about 9 o'clock in the evening, he said. He said Mr. More told him the Guilds stuck around Miss Jorgenson so close ly that ho had not been able to see her alone. Mr. Morgan Said Mr. More asked him to see Miss Jorgenson for him and tell her to tell the truth on the witness stand about the $1,000 entry Mr. Morgan said he told Mr. More that he knew nothing of the $1,000 en try and that Mr. More explained it to him. According to Mr. More's version, the witness said, this entrv had been tfor extra papers sent out by More fHE FARGO FORUM 2 o'clock when he left the house. On admitting him into the house, Miss Jorgenson said Mr. Townsend asked if anyone could overhear them. She said she told him no one could. Then she said he told her that Mr. More had asked him to see her. that Mr. More had understood that she was to be a witness the following: day, and that he wanted her to tell the truth about the $1,000 entry on the books. She said he showed her a telegram he had with him which was signed by Mr. Stedman of Minneapolis. She said she read the message, which said in substance that everything was ready to close the deal the next day, provided Mr. More would keep $16, 000 interest in the paper. Miss Jorgenson testified that Mr. Townsend further told her Dr. Guild was contemplating bringing another bookkeerier from the east who would be asked to take stock in a corpora tion which he said the plaintiff was soing to organize. Mr. Townsend told her, she said, that Mr. More had told him to tell her she need not worry about her position for he would take care of her in case she lost her pres ent Dosition with the Guilds for tell ing the truth. She said she told Mr. Townsend she didn't fear about los ing her position. rANT5 REMINGTON PACKING CO.
