Mayor Eugene Bchmltz was to-night found sullty of extorting money from keepers of French restaurants In tills city. This Is the first formal ronvlctlon In the anti-Kraft cam paign Inaugurated several months ngo. "m Itucf, who wns Indicted for similar offenses, pleaded guilty to the chnrges nnd nppeared ns a witness ngnlnst S hmltz. When the verdict was announced Fcbm 7. sat unmoved with his 1 ft I-a ml to his chin. Ho apparently did I tl tmdt rstand nnd asked Barrel: "What Is it?'- "Citillty," said Barrett. Schniitz's hand dropped to tho table, but he showed no other signs of emo tion. The Jury was out an hour and 33 minutes, Kven before Judge Dunne reached (he Synagogue, n nn automobile, when the Jury won ready to report, nearly n thousand men were clamoring nt this doors, As Judge Dunne entered tho rear door the crowd surged Into the building from tho front. When Fore man Capp said: "Oullty" a long drawn "ah" ran through the crowd. Then "Good," cried a voice In a far corner. And "pood, good," echoed nnother spectator farther In front, . tu dolph Spieckels, whose wealth made pos f We the whole prosecution, was walking r-w.ftly down the nlsle as the foreman t-nlil "guilty." He sink Into a nearby Fea as 'hough arrested by some sharp command. All over the house persons were Jump ing up now, and some of them turned t- the strangers nt their elbows and tl rust out their hands In enthusiasm, crying: "Shake," Judge Dunne announced that sentence will be pronounced June 27. Motions re garding the case will also be entertain cd on that date. I IniSIl NATIONALISTS AND IlRITISIl LIBERALS. It Is probably a mistake to assume, ns has been assumed by many onlookers, that nn Irreparable breach has been opened between the British Liberal and the Irish Nationalist members of Par liament by the unqualified and unan imous refusal of tho Nationalist conven tion held at Dublin, to .accept tho Hlr rell bill. Intended to transfer many nd minlstratlvc functions, now vested In boards appointed by the Viceroy of Ireland, to a central council, partly ap pointed, but mainly elected, by thoe Irishmen who possess the parllamentary fr.mchlso. There is no doubt that the bl'l should be constructed as an nnnounce fiient that It will tolerate no sort of cooperation between Irish Nationalists and the Ttosebery wins of the Liberal arty, which In tho present cabinet Is represented by the Chancellor of the 1 xchequor, tho Minister for Foreign Affairs, and the Minister of War. Vndcr the clrcumstnnces, If Premier Ranner nian's mnjorlty were less overwhelming than It Is. ho would have to dismiss Sir Edward Grey, Mr. Asqulth, and Mr. Ualdane, or loso tho support of Mr. John B. Redmond and his eighty follow ers. No such alternative confronts tho Minister ta-day, but at the next general election, -which, In Mr. Banncrman's rplnion. will take place In 19H or soon thereafter, Sir IT. J. Campbell-Banner-man and the o(ther Liberals who are sincere converts to home rule, and who composQ tho majority of the present Minister to-day, but at the next general crs of Lord Itosebery to flock by them selves, for the latter cannot possibly con trol so large a fraction of the electorate r.s Is represented by the Irish vote In British constituencies. Ird Kosebery, filr Edward Grey, Mr, Ualdane, and Mr. Aso.ulth really belong with tho X'nlonlsts upon every question that of free trado In breadstuffs. Meanwhile, Irish National ists will be expected to distinguish tho sheep from tho goats by supporting at 1 y elections those Liberal candidates who nre kneran to bo stanch hnme-rulers, nnd, on the other hand, helping to defeat those of the Itosebery stripe. That would tie the only fair deduction by Irishmen fitting nt Westminister, or voting In Great Brltlnn, from the action of the J"uMln Nationalist convention. They ought not to hold Premier Banncrmnn a spohslnln for the lilrroll bill, which notoriously did not conform to his per sonal wishes, but Mmply represented tho utmost which tho Itosebery would con ' de.

CROPS ARE YET BACKWARD, Too Cool for nest Growth nt Corn Itelnllers Stocks Are I.iintc No Ite-nriler Business -Full Trade IteportH Good In Most Sections. New York, June H. Bradstreet's to morrow will say: Weather, crop and retail trndo condi tions have changed for the bolter this week, nnd tho feeling Is rather more optimistic than for some months past. Still the crops are backward, It la too cool for the best growth of corn, and exceptionally favorable conditions aru required for best future rmnlia in !h agricultural community. Agreement Is general thnt retailers' stocks are large thnt reduction sales are numerous und that tilling In orders fronn Jobbers nnd manufacturers nre n negligible cpiantlty as yet. Fnll tr-do reports nro good In most sections. Cotton goods lead the dry 'goods line In strength of prices. Better crop reports havo depressed prices of cereals nnd other farm products. The June 1 level of all price showed nn upward reaction from earlier months of easing quotations which the present weakness has not al together offset. Finished "iron and steel aro active, structural material leading, while pig Iron is quiet. In lumber. Interior buying at large western centers Is less active. Inability to enlly obtain money s the cnuso as signed for difficulties reported by build ing concerns which nre spread out too widely for tho capital e-mnlnved. Mnn.v markets as a whole show little change. there js a disposition to hardening on long-time loans, while call rates are eny. The wire edge Is off speculation In commodities, nnd stock-markets opera tions have sunk to the smallest total in, two years. Railway earnings for May exceed those of May a year ago by 14. T per cent. Business failures for the week num ber 111. ngalnst 1D3 last week, 170 In tho like week of 1900, 175 In 1903, 1S1 In 1904 and 15 in 1903. CANADA TRADE HELPED. In Canada slightly warmer weather nnd more optimistic crop reports, caused thereby, have helped trade In all lines, but there Is still much room for improvement, especially in retail lines, In eastern Cannda. Re-order trade Is not much of a factor but fall business Is being placed with great confidence. Building Is nctlve throughout Can ada, and tho hardware trade Is the most active of nil lines, with groceries next, nnd light summer dry goods least favorably situated. Better re ports coming from the spring-wheat crop help trade. There Is said to be a smaller decrease than expected In the total area, condition Is good, nnd the outlook favors n yield equal to last year If good weather supervenes. Montreal reports heavy imports tax ing the port's, facilities but lighter ex ports, mostly of agricultural products. Toronto reports special activity In the demnnd from the New Ontario mining districts. Tho Asiatic demnnd for Can- andlan flour is Increasing. Failures for the week number 22, as against IS last week and 20 In this week a year ago. CONDITIONS STILL ADVERSE Bargain Stile Are Needed to Stimulate Retail Trade. New York, June 14, R. G. Dun A Co.'s weekly review of trade to-morrow will tiy: Despite some Improvement in weather conditions have continued adverse for re- tall trade at most points, and business Is only stimulated by bargain sales. Pros pects for fall distribution are bright, be- causn of the better crop reports, and manufacturers receive liberal orOers for next season. Mercantile collections aro below normal, except In Mictions where country storekeepers have been enabled to make prompt settlements, because high prices attracted much marketing of last year's grain, The sharp decline In wheat made that market less abnormal, ofllclal figures of condition on June 1 Indicating a larger crop than was expected, nnd since tho beginning of the month there has been further Improvement. Production of pig Iron continues making new records without depressing prices, and the cotton mills have contracts as suring activity far Into the future. Rail way earnings nre 12.8 per cent, larger thnn In June, 1906, while foreign commerce nt this port for the last week showed a gain of J4.9K1.424 in Imports and a loss of ll,(V0,)32 In exports, as compared with tho samo week last year. Failures this week In tho Fill ted Suites are 1S7 against 1S3 last -ear and 20 against 15 last year In Canada, HOOD FARM AUCTION. (iooil Price Large AttenUwice nnd the Hiijcru i:ntliiilixtlc. ,.
