FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,1906.
STATE 6MB MS Bottineau county had two suicides in one week. The telephone franchise flght at Ffergo begins to smell of sulphur. On the square, Ed Smith is making a corker out of the Bottineau Courant. The Soo railroad has presented the Egeland Presbyterian church with a new bell. Egeland wants the Dunkard college and held a public meeting to push the thing along. The Kulm Messenger thinks the Valley City Times Record is a surviv al of the old populistic party. The Oakes Times thinks the weather man got hold of a democratic calen dar when the mercury took a fall. Twelve hundred bushels of fine po tatoes were raised this season on the state Institution farm at Grafton on a five-acre patch. Sheldon has a man who says he will go to the sulphuric regions to vote for Tom Marshall and an exchange wants to know how he expects to have his vote counted by a solid democratic board. A shooting accident is reported from Eckelson, where a man is said to have mistaken an Italian for a dog and pep pered his posterior anatomy in a very painful manner. An apology has been offered and it is said there will be no prosecution. A dainty note in a feminine hand was found written on the margin of a state exchange received at the Even ing Times office. It was directed to a young man of the town and can be had by the writer by application and proper identification at the Times of fice. Jacob Schupp was arrested at Bow bells on a charge of stealing a load of grain from the granary belonging to the estate of Fred Mendel 1. The story goes that Mr. Schupp had an account against the estate and was advised by a Bowbells man that he had a right to take the grain, sell it, and turn the amount to his account Act ing upon this advice, he proceeded to take the grain, and was arrested by the administrator. The fellow who wrote the following story for the Minto Journal has been secured by the Grand Forks Herald to write its election predictions: Sev en years ago a Walsh county farmer, whose modesty forbids the publica tion of his name, hung his vest on the barnyard fence. A calf chewed up a pocket in the garment in which was contained a standard gold watch. Last week the animal, a staid old milch cow, was butchered fo.r beef and the timepiece was found in such a posi tion between the lungs of the cow that the process of respiration, the closing and filling of the lungs, had kept the Btemwlnder wound up, and the watch had lost but four minutes and two and-a half ticks in the seven years. It is one of the most remarkable oc currences we ever heard of. WHEAT CORN STOCKS Football ON COLLEGE GRIDIRONS TODAY. University of Texas vs. University of Oklahoma, at Oklahoma City.

Chicago has finally thrown in her lot with Minnesota, as far as football matters are concerned, and for the next three years, this game will be the big event in the schedule of both colleges. A three-year contract has been sign between the managers of the two teams. Next year the game will be played at Minneapolis and the follow ing year at Chicago. Chicago will probably cut both Mich gan and Wisconsin from her schedule as a result and fill in with games with Illinois, Northwestern, Indiana, and other smaller colleges in Indiana, Illi nois and Iowa. Minnesota may resume relations with Wisconsin or Michigan, but the Gophers are now In position to dictate to a certain extent The Maroon and Gold is rapidly assuming its proper position in the athletic world, and the agreement with Chicago will place the Gophers on at least an equal basis with any of the western colleges. The agreement with Chicago cannot but be pleasing to the Minnesota fol lowers. and the credit for securing it, is largely due to Manager Frank Reed of the football team. The high school football team is now apparently in a fair way to become embarrassed with a multitude of offers for games from other schools in this part of the country, whereas, it was feared the schedule would be a slim one. Hancock high school, champions of Northern Michigan, will probably be here next Saturday, and Minneapolis East Side and St Paul Central high schools are both after games. South Side high school of Minneapolis wants a game in Minneapolis, two weeks from Saturday, and Pillsbury academy is anxious for a meeting. Local supporters of the team, how ever, would like above all things to see a game with Blaine arranged. Next to that they would like to see Minneapolis Central downed, and then the boys would be welcome to their trip to Minneapolis, two weeks from Saturday, to play South Side, and incidentally take in the Carlisle-Min nesota game. Minnesota men have apparently overlooked the Nebraska game, next Saturday, in their eagerness for the Carlisle and Chicago contests. Nebraska Is no mean opponent, and the Corn Huskers will have a much stronger team than the one which faced Ames two weeks ago and met defeat. Taylor, the big negro guard, will be back in the game, and Wel ter, a powerful and much feared half back, will also be added to the line up. The Chicago White Sox are still playing exhibition games through the Middle Wc j'ern states. Some of the players have evidently not found winter jobs yet, but it is cruelty to the fans to bring them out on the bleachers in the chill November winds. Aaaodeted Preaa to Tkr R'ulac Ttan. Pittsburg, Pa., Nov. 2.—Clifford Hooe, the negro formerly employed as coach man by Augustus Hartje, the million aire paper manufacturer, and attorney for the Commonwealth and Mrs. Hart je, tried in the local courts for per jury as the result of an affidavit that he had been friendly with Mrs. Hartje, refused to accept a plea of nolle con tendere, or no defense, for him. The offer of such a plea was made by Attorney J. Scott Ferguson, chief counsel for Hartje and Hooe, in con sideration of the abandonment of the conspiracy charge against Hartje and John L. Welshons, a brother-in-law. The evidence against Hooe in the perjury case will be important in the trial of Hartje and Welshons, who Automobiling Special agent Charles M. Pepper, in writing from Bombay, furnishes a re port on the motor trade in India, which should be carefully considered by manufacturers of these machines in the United States. The excellent roads of India, extending for hundreds of miles, make heavy machines un necessary in that country, and types of cars in general use are bescribed by Mr. Pepper. There will be an ex hibition in Calcutta in January next, at which American machines might be exhibited with decided advantage to their makers. India Is rapidly taking a leading place in the exploitation of the motor indus try in foreign fields. It is worth the careful attention and thorough inves tigation of American manufacturers who are seeking to enlarge their mar kets.- The present time in an unus ually good one for them to find out what the peculiar and special needs of the country are and what their com petitors are doing to capture and hold the increasingly valuable trade. Re liability trials are to be held at My sore, in southern India, huring the WHEAT HAS A QUICK UPTURN Larger Receipts, Small Gash Sales and Poor Flour Business Favor The Selling Side for a Quick Turn Increased Speculative Interest Induced by Damage Reports Warrants Higher Prices For Corn Excellent Showing by Steel Corporation in Its Quarterly Statement Restores Confidence in the Security Market The past week has witnesses a reversal of opinion as to the value of wheat. The market has been active and for the most part toward a higher level. Minneapolis December has sold at 75-% c. against 72 %c. in the latter part of last week. There has been no decided change in the immediate conditions surrounding the market, but the short interest became so unwieldy and the floating supply of wheat was so small that the advance was easily scored. The advance of 3% cents has, we believe, caused this large short interest to cover pretty thoroughly and quite a lot of the strongly held long wheat has been liquidated with a view to again replacing it at a lower IqveL The principal bull card has been the small receipts at Northwestern terminal markets and this had been credited to car shortage, but the heavier receipts, since the buldge, leads us to believe that it was due more to the unwillingness of the farmer to accept the late low prices for his cereal. Our country advlcea say that a much heavier movement can be looked for from now on for some time, or, until prices again reach a low level. With the market broadening and taking into consideration the late sharp advance, we are of the opinion that profits should be secured and short sales made for a quick reaction, with a view to again getting in on the long side on any little dip of a few cents. The great speculative opportunities offered in this cereal are not being neglected. Trade in corn the past week has been large, and a good advance in prices has been scored. The former high estimates of this year's crop have had to be revised and reduced several times owing to the bad weather just before husking time. Reports from Illinois and Indiana say, rotting has caused a loss of from 3 to 10 bu. per acre in those states. Missouri sends reports of very poor returns because of the heavy rains Just previous to the husking time. The increase in the feeding of cattle and hogs for market this year, will a'lso be a very bullish feature in corn. Better returns are assured, the farmer from this method than by selling his corn at the low prices now obtainable. The manufacture of alcohol for commercial purposes is also a new consumer of corn that, previous to this year, has not had to be figured upon. The consumption of corn has increased much faster than the production, and we believe that, with the present light stocks and small receipts, purchases at or around present levels will prove highly remunerative. The security market has been under the influence of the uncertainty of the probable outcome of the coming election in New York state and the many favorable developments have not had the effect on values that they otherwise would. The meeting of the directors of the United States Steel corporation on Tuesday resulted in a continuation of the payment of 2 per cent on the common, and 7 percent on the preferred stock. But, it was pointed out that the rate remained unchanged, no because the earnings did not justify a greater disbursement, but, because it was not thought good market policy to Increase the dividend at this time. Earnings for the quarter ending September 30 were the largest for any similar quarter in the company's history, and were 38,114,625 dollars compared with 31,241,000 dollars tor the same quarter last year. The surplus available for dividends after fixed charges had been paid was 23,543,749 dollars, an increase og 6,566,217 dol lars. Unfilled orders on hand October 1, were record-breaking at 7.936.SS4 tons, compared with 6,809,589 tons on July 1 and 5,865,377 tons on October 1,1905. As the steel business is the recognized barometer of Industrial prosperity, the showlngof the company is looked upon as extremely bullish, and the the election uncertainty out of the way, we believe, the whole market will reflect the unprecedented prosperity of the country In a general upward movement of considerable proportions.

The proffer of Mr. Ferguson to plead nolle contendere was with the idea of allowing Hooe to go to the penitentiary and let Hartje escape the possible consequences of his alleged conspiracy. In spite of the awful character of the testimony the negro gave on the witness stand in his own defense, and which Mrs. Hartje had been told to expect, she Insisted upon his itrial, in order that the evidence might be used against Hartje to punish him for his effort to blacken her name in his now famous divorce proceedings against her. The negro was convicted of per jury and the arrest of Hartje is ex pected to follow. Christmas holidays. These will be fol lowed by a general motor exhibition at Calcutta from January 21 to Jan uary 30, at which all the leading Eu ropean manufacturers will be repre sented. The value of the trade is seen from tiie official statement that the motor cars, motorcycles and cycles imported during the last fiscal year amounted to approximately $2,000,000, of which one-half was through the port of Bom bay the supply market of western In dia. Accessories, which are classified under different headings, add to this 'total, while fuel and lubricating oil6 have largely increased sales since the use of motor cars, has become pop ularized. One cause of the popularity of the motor car in India is the number and the extent of good roads, some of them hundreds of .miles in length. A perfect highway runs from Bombay to Delhi, 900 miles, over which the trials were made in 1904. From Peshawar, farther north at the frontier of Afghanistan, a fine road extends all the way to Calcutta, a distance of 1,500 miles. These and similar roads are known as the grand trunks, and were built and maintained as military highways before the ad- DENTISTS DR. L. L. ECKMAN, DENTIST. Both Phones—46«M.

They are kept in a perfect state of repair. Other highways equally good are spread throughout the country, and in some of the states ruled by native princes particular care is given to the roads. One enterprising prince, the Mahar ajah of Gwalior, has caused a motor ists' road guide of his state to be pub lished, with maps, lists of rest houses and other information. The high-class and high-priced cars which in any country must be consid ered as luxuries, have found their beet customers among the native ru lers, whose example has been fol lowed by the rich Parsee merchants and financiers of Bombay, and in a modest degree by some of the officials of the Indian government A population of black Jews is to be found in the state of Cochin, in Brit ish Hindoostan, on the extreme south west of that peninsula. Here a small section of the Jewish race constitutes a unique phenomenon of the Cochin seaboard. The descendents of the Jews who migrated to the coast have, it is said, all the marked character istics of the race deeply ingrained in them, coupled with an intuitive sense of kinship with the ancient Israelitlsh nation. Their history can only be re garded as a product of oral tradition, for whatever records they had were destroyed three and a half centuries ago. The elders of the white Jews of Co chin, however, have in their posses sion a charter in two copper plates, one written on both sides and the other on one only, in Vatelutu char ters, the supposed dates of which are 700 A. D., presumably a date sub sequent to their settlement, according to some authorities, about two gen erations later. Others date the settle ment of the Jews in Cochin as early as the first half of the third century. There is little doubt that those who came here had for generations an en viable existence as compared with their coreligionists in Europe. They enjoyed the full privileges of citizen ship and every path to distinction lay open to them. The Mohammedans coming along disturbed their tranquility some years later, for in the sixteenth century they slew large numbers of them, but when they next turned their attention to them the latter retaliated and drove out the transgressors. With the arri val of the Portuguese the Jews began to share the experience of their breth ern in Europe, and the scourge which was visited upon them in Granganare was likened by them to the destruction of Jerusalem in miniature. The black Jews claim to have been the earliest settlers, though the white Jews deny them the honor, asserting that the black section are pure natives.
