BREAK WIPES OUT ADVANCE ’ . i Lack of Outside Demand Causes Prices to Go Some what Lower Today ■Chicago, June 17—(AP)—Lack of outside demand' caused moderate break in wheat prices late in today’s session and most of the advances which had been scored earlier work wiped out Trade eras diseouragingly clow and efforts to work up trade on outside interests went for naught, al though European nows, as a whole, | was less bearish, ■ Corn and other grains broke with wheat Wheat closed wreak % to % cents off, corn unchanged to % lower, oats % cent decline to %r cent advance and provisions two to 20 cents down. Wheat Values WhlcH were % eent lower to % cent higher on initial transactions suffered a further set back all around and then Something of a reaction. Core started unchanged to 1 cent up; but later showed a tendency to harden. Oats followed in the wake of corn and provisions also were some whht harder. f Reports were current that harvest ing of winter wheat, especially in the southwest, was nuking excellent prog ress. Ample rains over party of the spring wheat belt, moatly in Miftne wotu arid South Dakota, were said to have fallen, while it was said that some spring wheat damage had been OUT OUR WAY sustained in parts of North Dakota due to high winds and drouth. Although some rain had beep re ported ;n Uiese sections during the week, they were generally light and inadequate. The late break in wheat values yea terday tended to distuHb the confi dence of some of the traders hew who were inclined to be bullish. The qash situation, however, continued to be strong enough to offset any undue liberties on the abort side of the markfft. , . Kunt: session With do. largely of a local character. General sentiment in corn wan bearish. Provisions were easier on selling credited- to packers, shorts being the best buyers.

THE BISMARCK TRIBUNE Central Figure in Osage Indian Murder Ring This is a new and exclusive picture of Mollie Burkhart, Osage Indian woman about whom revolved the whole Osage “reign of terroT,” during which a score of Indians were killed by white men bent on obtaining their fortunes. She is the wife of Ernest Burkhart, who has admitted guilt in one of the murders, and it is charged that she was to have been killed after all her Indian relatives had died, so that Burkhart and his associates could gain possession of the accumulated “headrights” to the tribal oil wealth. SENATOR CUMINS’LOSS IN IOWA MARKS PASSING OF “GRAND OLD MAN’’ (liV CIIAM.ES P. STEWART Washington, Juno 17—No funeral ever watt more depressing than the session of the United States Senate immediately following receipt of the news that Senator Albert B. Cummins hud been beaten for renomination by Smith W. Brookhart, out,-in lowa. Not that there wasn’t a lot of secret rejoicing over the Coolidge adminis tration’s bereavement, but everybody was so sorry, personally, for Senator Cummins. The latter accepted his' political demise gamely, but all his fellow senators knew how it must have hurt him. After 18 years as one of the biggest men in the upper house of Congress, to be shoveled under so unceremoniously 1 Always Popular Cummins always has been very popular in the Senate, as it proved by picking him for its presiding officer during President Coolidge's fractional term in the- White House, when there was no regularly elected yice president. He’s a kindly, considerate man and as scrupulously fair and polite to ward the opposition as with those of his own party. From both sides of the Senate chamber he was showered with Words of sympathy'. Members of the progressive bloc were especially warm in expressions of their per sonal regret at his defeat, though for them, of course, Brookhart’s success was a victory. % Condolences In moderation were forthcoming for Senators Pepper, Mc- Kinley and Stanfield upon their re jection the primaries in their i SUPREME COURT | ♦ « From Burleigh County Altas Boutrous, Henry Duemeland, Frank Grambs, E. A. Hughes, C. B. Little, fred Peterson, and The Bismarck Grocery Company, a corporation. Plaintiffs and Respondent, vs. T. H. H. Thoresen as Tax Commis sioner of the State of North Da kota, Frank Johnson, as County Auditor of Burleigh County, By Williams respective states of Pennsylvania, Illinois and Oregon, but none had attained to Cummins' political alti tude, they hadn’t so far to fall and consequently the impact wasn’t so shattering when they landed. Either of them can try again. Cum mins, at 76, is hopelessly demolished. He needs more sympathy than they did, and he got it. Not Unprepared Perhaps one thing tnkes a little of the bitterness out of his catas trophe for Cummins —he wasn’t un prepared. . * He may have been surprised at the size of Brookhart’s lead over him, but he said some time ago that he considered his chances doubtful, be cause of the administration’s opposi tion to farm relief measures the west is demanding. He finally actually broke away from his party on this issue but he didn’t do it soon enough or make noise enough about it. Neither did he underestimate the danger to himself when the Senate unseated Brookhart in Daniel F. Stock's favor, making it certain that the former would be a candidate against him in this fatest primary. He wouldn’t vote on the Brookhart- Steck contest because he said he bad an interest in it, and he looked very glum when the result was an nounced. Yes, everybody’s desperately sorry for Cummins. But don’t get the idea that the rank and file of “regular” Republi can senators are weeping over such a sock in the eye for the Coolidge regime. No love’s lost between them and Coolidge.
