GOVERNMENT MUST START WAST EWAR, GRAHAM DECLARES Government action to reduce taxes and ban extravagance was urgently advocated by Congress man W. J. Graham, in his address to members of the Moline Rotary and Wiwanis clubs yesterday after noon. "The war " he said, "has intro duced a spirit of extravagance and wastefulness that is haunting us now, but the bousecleaning must start with the government" Reestablishment of government securities at par, refunding of out standing Liberty bonds and a reis sue of bonds at 50 years maturity, guaranteed by a sinking fund, were a few of the methods suggested by the congressman to reduce taxes and solve the economic problems now facing the government Failure of the president to Join with congress in formally ending the war, Congressman Graham de clared, was extremely disastrous to the country and had an apparent effect upo nthe pyscbology of the people. To prove thts statement he cited the tact that business is unsettled and that merchants, job bers and manufacturers are now taking profits that would be un reasonable under normal condi tions to afford protection against the time when tkey will be buying on a falling market In speaking of the government control ot the railroads which he declared was a demonstration of the error of autocracy made neces sary after the United States de clared a state of war existing with Germany, Congressman Graham slated: "It was disastrous for the rail roads, a bad thing for the country, and destructive to the morale of both the roads and the men. It was a thing congress must make good. The government must put the roads on their feet threw them on their own resource and let competition resume." O. BSwayze, national represen tative or the National Warriors, was the first speaker at the ioint meeting. Mr. Swayze made his ap peal for 100 per cent Americanism doubly effective by first appearing in tne rote or an agitator and start ling his audience with charges against the government and other bolshevik propaganda.

General belief that export business' on a large scale was being done under coyer had a bullish' effect today on the wheat market unravoraoie crop advices from the northwest tended also to lift values. Pit transac tions, however, laced volume Op ening prices, which ranged 1 from lc to 2c higher, with December 2.40 to 2.40, and March 2.43, weTe followed by a slight reaction, and then by a decided fresh advance. Later It developed that the Brit ish Royal Commission had bought some wheat and was bidding for more. The market closed strong, 5c to 6c net higher with De cember, $2.44 to $2.45, anf March $2.47. Scantiness of receipts helped to strengthen the corn market On the other hand, rains in the west acted as a check on buying. After opening c off to c up, includ ing September at 1.48 to 1.49, and December 1.24 to 1.25, the mar ket scored a material upturn. Fear was expressed vthat trans portation deficiency might make December an old crop delivery. The close was from 2c to 4c net higher with September, $1.52 to $1.52, and December, $1.27 to $1.27. Oats were firmer with corn, start ing c to c lower, but soon climbing above yesterday's finish. Weakness of hogs put a drag on provisions. Buyers were scarce. j Chicago Futures. Aug. 12, 1920. High.

Fleming of Aledo received a call a few days ago from residents of the vicinity ot Seaton reporting that a stranger, thought to be 'a member of the gang that robbed the Moline Commercial bank last week, was cornered in a corn field near the village. Sheriff Hicks of Monmouth had also been noti fied and the two officials arrived at Seaton almost simultaneously. In vestigations showed that the offi cials had been called out on a wild goose chase, the man who was hunted being merely a visitor at the home of his sister. ' Two young men from near Aledo were driving an automobile to Sea ton when they overtook the strang er and offered to give him a ride. He had a small satchel and after riding for a time requested to be set down as he did not care to go all the way into Seaton. The youths let him out of the machine and their curiosity was aroused upon seeing him strike through the corn field at a rapid pace. They drove to a nearby farm house and tele phoned to the sheriff, reporting their suspicions. The two officers . with blood hounds soon picked up the traces of the man and followed his tracks through the field. They finally found him sitting on the porch of a farm house, which was owned by his brother-in-law. The stranger had traveled several miles to enjoy a visit in the country with his sis ter.
