Colorado Cattle Win Prize. Chicago, Dec. s.—The Colorado stock men attending the National Live Stock Convention here are happy today be cause Colorado cattle scooped the sweep stake prize on range cattle at the expo sition. This makes two years in suc cession that this has been accomplished. The judges were busy all day yester day judging the range cattle, and there were cattle from all the western states. In the district taking in Colorado, Kan sas and Nebraska, a load of Shorthorns entered by William Boot of Montrose took the first prise on yearling steers and a load of Hereford eteers entered by Monte Blevins of North Park took first prise for 2-year-olds, and in the sweep stake competition these two loads took the first prize over all the cattle entered. All admitted that they were the best range cattle that had ever been seen here or anywhere else, and that the judg es awarded the ribbons right. Both of the winners are prominent cattlemen in Colorado and are known all over the state. M. K. Parsons Qecured first place with a load of yearling Hereford steers in the Nevada and western competition. Grain Prices Soar. Chicago, Dec. s.—Not since "Corn King” Phillips worked his famous cor ner last spring has there been such ex citement upon the board of trade as there was yesterday when anxious oper ators saw wheat, corn and oats all take a steady shoot upward uutil they reached points \ x /2 cents above the closing price of the night bsfore. Playing to the galleries, which were packed to their fullest capacity, broken on the Boor frantically bid up the price of the staple grains. Occasionally some poor "short,” squeezed between climatic conditions and the pressure of eastern and southern buying, would attempt in vain to stem the rising tide, only to bo dashed against the storm and to see hit profits wiped out with his fast decreas ing margins. Wheat reached the highest point at which it has been quoted since last Au gust, corn the highest point it has reached in nine years, and oats, feeling the effect of the rise in other grains, fol lowed suit to a relative extent. Prominent Attorney Dead. Denver, Dec. 5. Charles Hanson Toll for the last 21 years one of the most pop ular attorneys at the Arapahoe county bar, expired suddenly at II o'clock yes terday morning in his office, No. 4 Colo rado National Bank building.

He fell on the floor and the efforts to restore him were unavailing. Die. W. W. Grant and Thomas Hall were summoned immedi ately, but when they arrived they pro nounced Mr. Toll dead.

Cleveland, 0., Dec. s.—The Iron Trade Review, dieouseiDg trade conditions this week, says:’ The elements of strength in the iron trade, which have been commented on from week to week, persist. This ban ner year in ir:n and steel production bids fair, from all indications today, to be succeeded by even a greater one, not withstanding that this year closes on the highest prices of the twelve months. The advances of tbe past month have been in the face of a strong and wide spread conviction that there were possi bilities of harm in the situation. But conservatism has ruled up to thia time and there are powerful influences at work to prevent anything bordering on a runaway market. About the Weather.
