(By Thomson & McKinnon.) —June 28 — The bank statement of Saturday was the excuse for some professional selling early, and the announcement of renewal of the rate was followed by a little com mission selling. The market looked easy, but the de clines were not serious on the average and what liquidation occurred was insig nificant. as is clearly indicated by the total volume of the day's business. The bank statement offers but little encouragement, nevertheless there is some indication that we are passing through the period of lowest reserves. On March 26. following payment of be first installment of taxes, the New York Federal Reserve bank's reserve ratio was one point below that of Saturday.

The present sharp decline In the price of silver may solve a coinage problem for Great Britain says the Bankers Trust Company of New York. One of the monetary difficulties was to prevent the melting of silver coins and their sale as bullion, which operation has been profitable recently, because of the abnormally high price of ailver. The drop la the price of the metal has already eliminated that form of “profiteering" by making it no longer a paying operation. The fall in silver may a!*y dispose of another difficulty, namely, preventing a los* to the government in the minting of silver money, for recent high prices meant that the government had to pay more for sliver than the value it repre sented when coined Into money. SERIOUS SITUATION PRESENTED. . , The situation was considered so seri ous by the British treasury that parlia ment was asked to take step# to remedy it. A bill was introduced to permit the Issuance of new coinage containing less silver and more alloy than the present silver money. The plan proposed by the britlsh treasury wonld, if parliament ap proves, reduce the composition of silver coins to one-half pure Bllver the balance to be alloy. In support of the new coinage hill spokesmen for the treasury have argued that while (here would be a less amount of silver contained, the reduction would not mean actual debasement of the coln a,>Tbe proposed new coins, they contend ed would be equal in intrinsic value to the pre-war value of the present coinage so long as silver remained at 46 pence an ounce or over. On the other hand silver would have to reach 122 pence an ounce before there would be a profit realized from melting the half silver and half alloy money for sale as bullion. PARLIAMENT HAS CONTROL. There can be no change mane in the standard of British coinage today unless parliament sanctions it. But in nnelent timet the reigning monarch* used their own discretion and made debasement of the coinage a source of private profit. Part of the precloufc metal saved by re ducing the standard went to fill their de pleted purses.

Commenting upon the outlook for the railway equipment companies, the heßd of one of the large concerns declares that the immediate future promises to be the best period in years. "Foreign orders,” lie said, "if thev could be financed, would be sufficient to keep all equipment plants in the country active for a long time to come.

CHICAGO, June 28—Doleful crop forecasts sent September oats to anew high mark on the crop and advanced December corn 6% cents on the Board of Trade today. Estimates of 440 cars of corn caused a dip in the July price to below Satur day’s close, but the early spot market was so firm that the future sold, up to $1.78, easing to around the previous close when the cash market weakened, but ral lying at the close. Present weather is ideal for the grow ing crop, but reports say that unless southeastern Nebraska gets relief from the heat within a week, the crop will begin to fire. The buying side was encouraged when the forecast for the next thirty-six hours indicated continuance of the hot wave. Se'llng against offers checked the ad vance in September, but failed to stop December. Considerable broadening was noted In the trade, the bulk of business being small lots. Profit taking was in evi dence in the bulges, but good buying orders appeared on the reactions. Oats displayed Independent strength from the outset on the crop forecast from Illinois and lowa, which induced scattered buying and met little selling pressure. CHICAGO GRAIN. —June 28— CORN—Open.

(By Thomson & McKinnon.) - —June 28— Acting on the belief that this week will see the culmination of the movement of corn, also because of the comparatively small premiums for cash corn, shippers today were supplying their future needs. This condition was transmitted to the deferred deliveries, sentiment also being helped by high temperatures west and southwest. It Is true that temperatures are high, but there Is thought to be ample mois ture everywhere, except in a limited area in the extreme southwest. Weather conditions are now the gov erning factor, as trade has In mind the period of drought and heat a year ago. New shipping demand does not im prove. With weather controlling factor market action will be uncertain and er ratic. Drought and heat were the immediate motives in oats. A goodly portion of the crop Is now at the filling period, where ample moisture and moderate tem peratures are desirable. Existing weather conditions are but an added motive in the market. Cash prices were Inclined to easiness, and the i new shipping demand is comparatively | slow, TOLEDO CASH GRAIN. TOLEDO, June 2.—Corn—No. 2 yel low. $l.B3 l ‘j. Oats—No. 2 white, $1,190 1.20.

FORMER CHIEF OF MAILS IS GUILTY Terre Haute Man Took Marked Bills From Letters. Alfred L. Larr, formerly superintend ent of the mails at Terre Haute, Ind., charged in an indictment returned by the last federal grand jury, with lar ceny and embezzlement from malls in course of delivery, was found guilty on all six counts of the Indictment by a jury in federal court today. The court was expected to pronounce sentence this afternoon. The indictment was returned follow ing an investigation, the result of charges of postal Inspectors who claimed they saw Larr take four $1 bills from a letter in process of delivery through the Terre Haute postoffice on March 24. The bills, which were marked, It was said, were later found on Larr’s person. ADIMTS BILLS FOUND ON HIM. On the witness stand Larr admitted the bills were found in bis possession after he had been recalled to the postofllce on the afternoon of March 24, but said they had been taken by him from a drawer where he kept postage due stamp money. He said every clerk in the office had ac cess to that drawer. John J. Cleary, postmaster at Terre Haute, said on the witness stand that during the last eighteen months Larr had been In the employe of the post office a loss of approximately $2,000 resulted from thefts from the mails and that since his dismissal only two losses involving $lO have been reported. Larr declared he and Postmaster Cleary had some differences and that Cleary had asked him to resign. Cleary denied there had been differ ences and that he had ever asked Larr to resign. WRITE AND FOLLOW DECOY LETTER. Three postoffice inspectors, W. R. Briggs, H. H. Wasson and F. L. Pierce, testified they had prepared the special delivery letter and had traced it from Cincinnati, where it was written, to the time it was placed on the special de livery distributing table in the Terre Haute postoffice. Each bill had been marked with a dot of red ink on the scarf of the portrait of Washington, engraved on the bills. W. R. Briggs, one of the Inspectors, said he saw the special delivery letter after It had been placed on the dis tributing- table and that he saw Larr place the letter face down in a pile of letters other than special delivery, but that he did not see Larr take the letter. HAD COLD, V AFRAID TO COUGH. He said he had a bad cold and had to cough and that be left In order that Larr’s attention might not be attracted. Frank L. Pierce, another inspector, who was with Briggs, said he stayed after Briggs left and that he saw Larr place the letter in the top of his trousers under his belt. He said Larr felt the letter and evi dently knew there was money In It. ‘ He then placed It with a pile of long letters,” Pierce said, "and when the op portunity came, he slipped the letter under his belt.” He said Larr made three attempts be fore he finally got away with the letter. Each of these three attempts were frus trated when he was Interrupted by mall carriers and clerks, Pierce said. "No other clerk handled or bothered that letter, which had been traced care fully from Cincinnati,” said Pierce, ‘‘and the letter was never seen again from the time It got Into the hands of Larr.” 11. H. Wasson, the postal inspector who examined Larr in the office of the postmaster and found the three marked bills on Larr, said Larr when first asked for all his money gave them a pocket book. BILLS AMONG CHANGE. “Later," he said, “$6 and some change was found in Larr’s pockets and the three marked bills among them." “He then told us he had gotten the bills from Joseph Burr, stamp clerk. ask us about J The Cruises | on the Great Lakes Tours — Cruises — Travel Information Fletcher American Company Agents for All Steamship Lines i- 1 ■ *"'■ _ - -- —4 Steamship nil ■ A FLETCHER ii AMER( can ■ IVrIvIOcOMPANY CENTRAL STATES AGENCIES Incorporated under the laws of the State of Indiana Financial Brokers and Underwriters Market Price Paid for Liberty Bonds J Phones Su^m^V 1 127 £.

The other dollar bill that was from the special delivery letter, the spectors said, was found at the cigH store of Joseph Bourk, where Larr htS bought two cigars and a sandwich. 1 In cross-examination Larr denied had told the inspectors the money in the pocketbook was all he had and that he had gotten the money from Burr. He said he did not know where thOj money came from, but he did admit was the only man who had been in fbe habit of exchanging small change for bills and placing them in the drawer, although the remainder of the clerks had access to the drawer. Burr said he had reported many losses to the postmaster and the assistant post master, W. B. Hice, and that many times he had sustained losses from the postage due the stamp drawer, which he made good himself. Both Postmaster Cleary and Assistant Postmaster Htce denied such reports had been made to them. Laughs as Friends Pinched; He’s Next SOUTH BEND, Ind., June 26.— -ji During the liquor raids in Bend.
