Bryan Democrats Will Welcome Their
Leader Home.
LINCOLN, Neb.. Jan. 2.—ln an invita
tion signed by T. D. Worrall, chairman of
the banquet committee, Bryan Democrats
ask all the faithful to banquet Jan. 18.
After telling of the honors conferred on
Mr. Bryan abroad, the call declares:
"Loyal Democrats therefore deem it
only fit and proper that this splendid
American citizen and great Democrat be
honored by his fellow Democrats upon his
return home, and to that end are arrang
ing a 'Dollar dinner' to be held at the
Lindell hotel, Lincoln, on Jan. 18, 1904. It
is to be a Democratic banquet in fact as
well as In name, given by Democrats who
not only refuse to apologize for remaining
true to the principles of the Democracy
as enunciated in the Chicago and Kansas
City platforms, but deny that they owe
any apology to Democrats who deserted
the party during those campaigns and lent
their aid and comfort to the enemy.
"While standing ready at all times to
welcome the wandering and erring ones
back to the Democratic fold upon suf
ficient evidence that in future they pur
pose supporting the Democratic ticket,
the Democrats who are arranging for this
banquet to Democracy's gallant leader de
cline to step aside to make room at the
family table for those who betrayed the
household of the faith. While it is true
that the departing ten tribes of Israel
marched forth with the gaudiest banners
and the loudest sounding of timbrel and
lyre, it is equally true that the ark of
the covenant remained with the tribe of
Judah. The ark of the Democratic cove
nant remains in the household of the
faithful, and they are cordially invited to
gather on the evening of Jan.« 18, 1904, to
again renew their faith in Democratic
principles and gain strength for the forth
coming struggle for control of this re
public's affairs."

A special meeting of the state board of
grain appeals was held yesterday to adopt
rules for the grading of oats, to be used
in governing the market for oats futures
which will be inaugurated in the Minne
apolis Chamber of Commerce on Jan. 15.
The idea of establishing such a market
in this city has been under consideration
for some time, for farmers throughout the
Northwest have been forced to ship their
oats to Chicago or some other point still
farther away. A large volume of business
has thus gone to other markets which
would otherwise have come to Minne
The grading rules are as follows: No. 1
white oats shall be dry, white, sweet,
sound, clean and free from other grain,
and shall weigh not less than thirty-four
pounds to the measured bushel.
No. 2 white oats shall be seven-eighths
white, dry, sweet, sound, reasonably clean
and practically free from other grain, and
shall weigh not less than thirty-one
pounds to the measured bushel.
No. 3 white oats shall be seven-eighths
white, dry, sweet, sound, reasonably clean
and practically free from other grains, and
shall weigh not less than twenty-nine
pounds to the measured bushel.
No. 4 white oats shall be seven-eighths
white, but not sufficiently sound and clean
for No. 3 white.
. No. 1 mixed oats shall be dry, sweet,
sound, clean and free from other grain
and shall weigh not less than thirty-four
pounds to the measured bushel.
No. 2 mixed oats shall be dry, sweet,
sound, reasonably clean, practically free
from other grain and shall weigh not
less than thirty-one pounds to the meas
ured bushel.
No. 3 mixed oats shall be oats that
are merchantable, warehouseable, reason
ably clean and not fit for higher grades.
No grade oats shall be oats that are in
heating condition, too musty or too damp
to be safe for warehousing, or that are
badly damaged or exceedingly dirty or
excessively mixed with other grain.
No. 1 clipped oats shall conform to the
same stipulations as those governing No.
1 white, except that they must weigh not
less than forty pounds to the measured
No. 2 clipped oats shall correspond to
No. 2 white, except that they shall weigh
not less than thirty-eight pounds to the
measured bushel.
No. 3 clipped oats shall correspond to
No. 3 white, except that they shall weigh
not less than thirty-six pounds to the
measured bushel.
