Morning Grain Letter.
Cables wheat 4 to 1 lower. Cause
of decline Is given by Broomhall as
weakness in Winnipeg, rains in India,
favorable Argentine crop prospects,
and Indication of heavy Russian ship
ments for the week. With Canada un
derselling us, we cannot hope for any
helD from the foreigner and must
look for a bull incentive right' In this
country. With the probability remov
ed of Canadian wheat coming to this
country duty free, we believe the de
cline is nearing Its windup.
Corn cables 4 higher. Principal
bear factor Is the large local stocks.
We believe, however, husking returns
will make a bullish showing from now
on and much fewer on the buying side.

sumption, owing to price, must be

the opening in wheat, and values were

were offset here by the closing firm

crop news is still too optimistic Fur
ther liquidation and lower prices are
the immediate probability.
Corn Mostly affected by the contro

Mr. Wild writes from Liverpool that
American corn is retailing from 16 to
33 per cent higher than Argentine. As
an offset, to this, our New York office
wires us that dealers there prefer the
Argentine corn to American. We still
feel that the above news is not suf
ficient offset for this year's short yield
and favor purchases. ,
Oats Latest Winnipeg advices are
that Canadian oats are above export
basis. Further liquidation also due

Stocks We had a glimpse of the

Peorians' Assail Mrs.. Medill
McCormick for Assailing
Other Bench Nominees' Aids Denounce
Suffrage , Issue of the
Peoria. 111., Oct. 16. Mrs. Medill Mc-i
Cormick of Chicago encountered op
position from prominent, Peoria women
yesterday when she addressed a meet
ing in the interest of the candidacy of
Arthur H. Shay, of Streator, progres
sive nominee for justice of the su
preme' court at next Monday's special
Mrs. George T. Page, a candidate
for state regent of the Daughters of the
American Revolution, and Mrs. Harry
M. Pindell. wife of the Peoria editor
who is slated to be United States min?
ister to Russia, interrupted Mrs. Mc
Cormick to take her to task for her
criticisms of Leslie D. Puterbaugh,
republican judicial nominee.
The interruptions caused a lively
row and served to stir up much re
sentment in Peoria over the progres
sive attacks upon Mr. Pu'erbaugh,
who is the only resident of this city
in the three cornered fight, for the
fifth district seat on the supreme
Both Mr. Puterbaugh and Charles
C. Craig o Galesburg, the democratic
nominee, made ; speeches in Peoria
last night. Both held aloof from the
woman suffrage issue injected into the
campaign by the progressives. Other
speakers at both, the republican and
democratic ' meetings held it to be
manifestly improper for a judicial
candidate to Commit himself in ad
vance as to his ruling on the consti
tutionality of the suffrage law.
Secretary of State Harry Woods
and State Treasurer .William Ryan, Jr.,
Epoke at meetings with Mr. Craig last
night. The democratic state admin
istration is exerting its utmost in
fluence to elect the Galesburg man.
"I firmly believe that Sir. Craig will
be elected," aid Mr. .Woods following
last night's meeting. "I do not see
how the prospects could be brighter."
The democra'ic leaders were in con
ference late last night. It was under
stood that plang were made for man
ning the polls on election day. The
democrats are understood to be well
supplied with campaign funds. Fi
thermore state patronage is said to be
available for use In adding to Mr.
Craig's strength.
The Peoria newspapers arc bi'ter in
their denunciation of the attacks of
progressive women upon Mr. Puter
baugh. who for 23 years has served
upon the bench in this circuit.
The Peoria" Star says that "Mrs.
McCormick, with the insolence of a
member of the privileged class, laugh
ed in Mrs. Page's face and with true
woman's indirectness wriggled out of
the matter by declaring she had said
nothing against the judge's character
whatever, having only attacked his
judicial record."
About 50 women gathered at the Y.
M. C: A. building to hear Mrs. McCor
mick. Hugh Weston, secretary of the
progressive organization, ' introduced
the speaker, Mrs. McCormick declar
ed that Judge Puterbaugh never had
decided one case in the interest of
humanity during his long service on
the bench. She said that during his
service on the appellate bench he had
reversed numerous cases in the inter
est of corporations.
Mrs. Page jumped to her feet. She
declared that Mr. Puterbaugh's record
as a man and a citizen was not only
longer than that of Mr. Shay, but of
superior quality. Mrs. Page asserted
that the meeting had been arranged
under false pretenses. Mrs. McCor
mick replied" that the records showed
Mr. Puterbaugh's decisions had been
against, humanity.
Mrs. Pindell then took up the cud
gel for Mr. Puterbaugh. Although a
democrat. Mrs. Pindell s husband Is
supporting the republican candidate
because of his belief in nonpartisan
judicial elections.
Mrs. Pindell asked If Mrs. McCor-
pick would publish a. record of the!
Puterbaugh decisions and the legal
reasons therefor. Mrs. McCormick
replied that she could look up the rec
ords for herself.
Mrs. Page declared that she would
willingly sacrifice her chances of elec
tion as state regent of the D. A. It.
rather than have permitted Mrs. Mc
cormick's Btatemens to go unchal
lenged. 1
