The main feature of this week in the new wheat futures will be awaiting news on fly from Kan sas. Missouri and Illinois. A nervous market with sharp changes is expected and down turns in July and Septem ber wheat should be limited. A com plete change of sentiment permeates all grains and products. A period of comparative firmness is outlined. Mv wheat has advanced about 6 cents to around 96. and locals say another two cents will be all in May wheat. Chi cago May wheat is above other m-ir-kets and volume receipts to Chicago is liberal. If the grains rise today would prepare for a Tuesday break. Shorts in Map wheat are now justified in waiting out, but July wheat at 87 to 88 In a pecu'lar position. After May 31 July -wheat will represent the cash, stun to oo extent, and its present four to 11 rents discount below the cash is- extensive. The radical reversal of Argentine corn situation combines to act as a lesson on any excessive general bear action at present. The winter wheat crop can lose 10 points for May and the June promise would be 590.000,000. The Argentine corn news suggests very slow offers of her new corn for two or three weeks. - A break is due in corn on the enlarged June receipts, but it may not arrive until May 25. Fancy southwestern corn prices will be perpetual. Very large visible de creases of all grains are due today. Weather over past three days has been favorable for fast corn planting. Scat tered oats complaints have arrived in past week. Fast reduction of oats visible since November Is one of the most remarkable grain facts of the crop year. Large buying September oats on dips is indicated. High prices of meats, strong prices of southwest cattle and confidence of packers are aids to provision firmness. On the basis of 20 counties affected in Illinois. Missouri and Kansas the wheat affect ed by fly might total 30,000,000 or 40,000,000. WILL CELEBRATE BIRTH OF PARTY Republicans Flan Banquet at Blooming-ton on Anniversary of Meeting of '56. Bloomington, 111., May IS. Accept ances to invitations sent to prominent republican leaders of the state and na tion indicate the celebration in Bloom- ingtoa on May 29 or the birth of the republican party will be notable as a political gathering. George W. Wick ersham of New York, attorney general in the Taft administration, will de liver the principal address. A "dollar banquet" at which 700 will be seated will be served preliminary to the speeches. The celebration will be held but three blocks from the site of the build ing where the republican party was born May 29, 1856. This historic struc ture still stands and is an object of great interest to historians. It was in this hall 58 years ago that Abra ham Lincoln delivered his famous "lost speech." This address which s later written out from memory by a group of newspaper men and others, will be read at the celebration. The convention was substantially the first gathering In Illinois in opposi tion to th a repeal of the Missouri com promise. In 1S54 an attempt had been made by the more radical anti-slavery men of the state to organise a new party to resist the encroachment of the slave power. The ga'hering of 1S56 was known as the anti-Nebraskau convention, as the republ'can party was yet to be born. In addition to Lincoln. Yates, Oglesby and other old time Whigs there were Palmer. Lovejoy, Wentworth, Judd and other famous abolitionists and demo- DIE SIDE BY SIDE Miss Emily Backus, 77, and Marietta Wright, 73, Expire in Gas Filled Room. Chicago, 111., May 18. A a they al ways had been in life, so they were found In death side by side. Policemen broke into their home, at SOi,"; tvaetij'ngton boulevard yesterday and discovered their bodies in a gas fiiled room.. Sisters they were Mrs. Emil Back us, 77 years old, and Marietta Wright, 73. Never within the memory of their oldest pt'ghbor bad one been seen without the other. They were chums as well as sisters. Their greatest fear was that one would die and leave the other alone. The had money, each of them aLout $100,000. Their death was dis covered by a man who had come to Chirac-, from Rochester, N. Y., to tell them about a real estate deal he had just negotiated for them, a deal net ting a profit of about $10,000. They were -rll supplied with necessities and luxuries, but they cared nothing for the latter. They were content to live quietly. They did no entertain ing; they had few friends; they were satisfied with each other. Only once in their lives were they separated. That was when Emily was married. She became the wife of Cor nelius Backus and moved to Chicago with hin He lost most of his prop erty in the great fire of 1871 and died a year later. Then her sister Marietta came to Chicago to help her bear her burden of sorrow; and the sisters had not spent a day apart since then. The discovery of the tragedy was made by Frank Croston of Rochester, a cousin by marriage of the sisters. He arrived at 8:40 o'clock yesterday mcrning with the proceeds of the real estute deal he had negotiated for tln-m. He first called upon Augustin L. Hardick of 2428 West Jackson boule vard, and accompanied by him, went to the home of the sisters. The men rang the bell and knocked on the c'.f.or. but were unable to get a re sponse. "There's something wrong," said Mr. Croston. He placed a ladder against the house and climbed to the window look ing into the sisters' bedroom. The window had been nailed down. Inside he saw the two women, lying side by side in bed. He rapped on the win dow, but they did not move. When the police came a door was burst open. The lower part of the house was filled with gas. When it had aired sufficiently so the men could enter they went upstairs and broken open the bedroom door, which had been locked. A gas jet was cpen. The sisters had been dead several hours. "Mrs. Backus had become absent minded during the last few years," Mr. Croston said. "It is probable that able to borrow money needed to carry on and extend its business. If the McKenna estimate of Rock Is land's financial needs Is correct, Moore and Reld and Hlne.have authorized the payment of $23,896,169 in divi dends which' from both a legal and good business standpoint should have been nsed to replace worn out freight cars, rails and cross ties. Moore and Reld and Hine are still directors of the Rock Island, and under the law can be held personally respon sible for having paid unearned divi dends. According to present plans in the forthcoming reorganization the hold ers of Rock Island's collateral trust 4 per cent bonds will have to stand a 20 Der cent cash assessment, while the owners of the preferred and common stock will be asked to put up 10 per cent. I.BSMAl AT THE BURTIS. "Omar. the. Tentmaker," the New York success, In which Guy Bates Post will come to the 3urtis opera house, Davenport, Sunday afternoon and ev ening, May 31, is a Persian love play, based on the life, times and rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. Omar appears first as a young student in tha rose-scented garden of long ago. For months he has listened to the teachings of the holy Imam, but with the mind of a great man centuries ahead .of his time, he has seen through the fallacies of dogmatism and given more thought to the Imam's beautiful, daughter than to his teachings. When the play opens, Omar is asking for the maiden, when an emissary comes from the shah ask ing that she be breught to his harem to become his fourth wife. Mohamme dan faith considers this a great honor, but Omar becomes embittered that he who loves but the one should have to sacrifice her. to a harem already over crowded. Yielding to his love, Shi reen, the Imam's daughter, goes out with him into the desert, but the next day she is to go to the shah. The next Hottrm mt Pefclfc-atloa.

It aroused the convention to wild enthus iasm when, as if addressing those pre ferring the charge of dlsunlonism, slowly, earnestly and impressively he said: "We do not intend to dissolve the union nor do we intend to let you dissolve it." This speech and the his toric debates with Douglas ia 1S58 helped make Lincoln president. It is believed that a few survivors of the convention of 1856 are still liv ing, and an effort will be made to se cure their attendance at the annivers ary celebration on May 29.

The quatrain, best translated into English by Edward Fitzgerald, was in Persia a form of repartee, so that in the play Omar lapses occasion ally into the verses so familiar.. With him lives little Shireen, daughter of his Shireen of the garden, whom he believes to be dead. She falls in love with a Christian knight, who flees wounded into Omar's home, and Omar ministers to and protects this kaight. Always in disfavor because of his lib eral religious opinions, he throws him self open by this act to arrest, and he is tried before the vizier. Condemned to torture, he is thrust into the stocks, and his soul is seen leaving his body, while he is unconscious and going In search of the key to the universe. Shireen comes back, wins his freedom from the vizier, and there is a happy ending, back in the rose-scented gar den of long ago. rfa V of Anrll. A. D. 1M14.

Moore, D. G. Reld. and Francis L. Hine must plead guilty of forcing Rock Island in the class with New Haven Frisco and Alton. From 1902 until October of 1913, Rock Island was com pletely la the hands of the three men named. McKenna. who is vice presi dent of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul railroad, was employed by the Rock Island bondholders commit tee to make a close inspection, reports that 20.000 of Rock Island's freight cars should be scrapped and $15,000, 000 spent for new ones, and that de ferred maintenance to track and equip ment call for an additional expenditure of $8,896,159. What any expert ac countant or railroad man understands McKenna to mean is that instead of having a profit and loss surplus of $13,-1 604,851. as reported on June 30 last, I the old Chicago, Rock Island and Pa4 cific railway really had a deficit of $10,291,308. All told, Rock Island owns 40.798 freight cars. According to the Mc Kenna report, half of the company's total freight equipment - should be scrapped. To a practical railroad man that statement is absolutely startling. McKenna's charge that Rock Island has $8,896,159 of deferred mainten ance is equally as sensational. If McKenna's report is correct. Rock Island's profit and loss surplus on June 30 last was overstated by $23,896,159, or the sum of the $15,000,000 needed Ninth of Kathlyn Series. The ninth in the series of "The Ad ventures of Kathlyn," entitled "The Spellbound Multitude," seems to be even more thrilling than the previous ones. Kathlyn's sister Winnie having been made queen, Kathlyn determines to rescue her. Winnie is made pris oner in the harem, whereupon she feigns sickness and asks for a female physician. Kathlyn disguises herself in this garb and gains entrance to the harem. But Umballaha discovers her identity and makes her prisoner. . She makes her escape, however, and imme diately plans with Bruce and Rama bai another means of rescuing her sis ter. This is accomplished in a very thrilling manner in the second reel of the series, to be seen at the Colonial theatre tomorrow. Sotlee of Final Settlement. Estate of Joseph U. Chandler, de--.eaaed.
