UN IS SURELY KING It Hakes Another Big Adrtsce on Chi- J cago and Hew York Markets. INKERS SWAMPED WITi OKKRS Farmers Become Ball Wbni Frofeeslea ata Begin Bealizins; Wheat Censplca cat By J1t1bc Cora a C1.M Race la tb. Advance. NEW YORK, July 13. There was a scene of great excitement in both the wheat and corn markets at New York today, the trading aggregaating one of the largest day's totals in a year or more, especially- as to corn. Prices jumped 2 5-S cents during the day in corn, making 6& cents advance for the week. Orders poured into the market so fast that the brokers could scarcely execute them at the prices de sired and the usually small crowd around the com ring was increased to such an extent that at times it al most outrivaled that in the wheat pit. The farmers have taken the bull side into their hands and in the face of heavy realizing on the part of profes sionals have kept prices going until the cry is for GO-cent corn in Chicago. Where the present bull movement will end depends a great deal on weath er conditions in the leading corn states. Wheat alto took an extraordinary jump today and from being, in a posi tion almost entirely friendless at once leaped into' popularity with the bulls and gave corn a close race for leader ship in the advance for the day. Prices in New York closed 2 and 3 cents higher than yesterday and prac tically at the top price. Professionals were caught in this bulge in wheat and some of them lost about all the money they have made by selling long corn to the bull public For weeks and for months wheat has been ham mered persistently by everybody in the belief that tho crop would be a record one and more than enough to make up the foreign shortage. The result has been a huge short Interest, part of which was caught in yesterday's big advance. The remainder is in a state of anxiety as to what the out come will be, realizing that a much greater upturn must mean the covering of a big line of wheat. Today bulls were still further encouraged by re ports that wheat in the Red river al ley was being injured by pxcessive heat after recent wet weather. CHICAGO. July 13. Today's advices to the Bourd of Trade grain compa nies arc to the effect that the beat and drouth in the southwest arc un broken. It is said that the damage outside of Kansas and Missouri is com paratively slight, but that unless there is relief within the next ten days the corn crop situation will approach a calamity. A message from Topeka, Kan., says the prospects are for a crop of but 50,00,000 bushels of corn, although last year's crop was 163.000,000 and the year before 237.000,000 bushels. The loss of hay and potatoes is also great, second only to the loss of corn. It is estimated that the farmers of Kansas and Missoui i have already lost $50,003. 000 by the torridity aud drouth. The straits in the corn crop Is said to be owing to th intense heat and lack of moisture &:id is ieflected in the course of prices of that cereal on the Board of Trade. Corn for Sep tember delhery at the opening today sold simultaneously from 52c to 52ic, compared with the close yesterday at Sl?s31l2c: shortly cfterward it was quoted at 52T;c, or 9 cents higher than the price one mouth ago shortly be fore the litat and drouth began to arouie misgivings as to the future of the crop.

MILEAGE Of THE COUNTIES. Nebraska laaaetrlal Depart neat Fig-eree Railroad Facta. LINCOLN, Neb., July 15. The de partment of labor and industrial sta tistics has completed a compilation showing the number of square miles of territory, date of permanent or ganization and number of miles of rail road for every county in the state. This information was obtained from various sources. The railroad statis tics were compiled from the official records of the auditor's office, the fig ures relating to square mileage from the state survey and the dates of or ganiaztion from histories, county and judicial officials and early settlers. The dates of county organization comprise an entirely new feature of Nebraska statistical information. It was necessary for the compilers to consult every source of information to get the correct dates, and very often these sources gave conflicting accounts. In Knox county, for example, the first organization was destroyed by In dians and the next establishment be came confused with the military force stationed in the county. In such instance the date of permanent or ganization was accepted. The figures given in the report have been verified and they will soon be officially pub lished by the state. MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANIES. Ceart Decides that They Cannot Limit Liability of Members. LINCOLN, Neb., July 15. The su preme court has decided that mutual insurance companies cannot limit the liability of its members. This opinion is delivered in the case of Morgan against the Hog Raisers' Mutual In surance company. Morgan had a con tract with the company which limited his liability. An epidemic caused the claims against the company to exceed the assets by 913,000 and the officers sought to collect this sum, notwith standing it exceeded the total limit of liability. The court says that members of a mutual insurance company are obli gated to pay all assessments necessary to liquidate losses and expenses of management and that it is the duty of the directors to make an assessment whenever necessary, and, further, that if this assessment is not paid within Jiirty days suit may be commerr. under the law. The court holds t!at there is no merit in the contention of the objecting members that be cause the contracts are limited as to liability they cannot be held liable for the full amount of the losses.

Governor Herried this afternoon gave out the following interview on the senatorial situation: For a week I have been receiving telegrams and letters and listening to the arguments of friends cf the vari ous candidates for United States sen ator. These communications are so numerous that I know my friends will not expect me to reply to each one personally. I am so thoroughly ac quainted with the men and familiar with the conditions and interests of our state that I feel I am as well pre pared now as I would be in another week or two to settle this matter. "It did not take me long to conclude to make the strongest and best ap pointment possible. This has been my invariable rule of action. I have considered the man rather than his location. Both senators from Indiana live in the same city. It is so in some other states. I do not underestimate the great ability and high character of the different aspirants for this high office when I say that from my inti mate acquaintance with Mr. Kittredge I consider him most honorable, con scientious and upright, and pre-eminently qualified to represent our splen did young commonwealth in the sen ate of the United States." Alfred B. Kittredge, who is appoint ed by Governor Herried to fill the va cancy' in the United States senate caused by the death of James H.

The total registration of homesteaders at El Reno yesterday was 4,018. 193 being women. Commissioner Richardson es tablished a separate registration booth for women. Mr. Richardson says he can register 8,000 daily from now on or as soon as organization of hla force is perfected. EL RENO. O. T.f July ll. Follow ing out the proclamation of President McKmley opening up to settlement by whites the 1,300 farms in the Kiowa-Comanche country, the first regis tration of bomeseekers was made here and at Lawton at 9 o'clock this morn ing. Hundreds were still lined before the various registration boards when darkness came tonight and tomorrow and next day the registration will continue until all who come .have been given an opportunity to file their names. The drawing by lottery will begin July 29 and until then none of the 50,000 applicants will know wheth er or not he has been lucky enough to receive a homestead. The lottery scheme robbed the open ing of the picturesque run and the exciting- times incident to the great opening of the Cherokee strip ten years ago. Compared with that event the affair today was tame in the ex treme. Although there are perhaps 20,000 people in town .practically no disorder prevailed. As a rule the homeseekers were well provided with money and provisions and aside from the iong wait in the sun before the registration booths, no serious incon venience has been experienced. Last night hundreds of people slept in the streets and alleys to maintain their places in lines which began forming yesterday at the six regis tration booths in El Reno. Many had waited on the border of the new coun try for two years or more and the last night of their long vigil was the most trying they had experienced. The line was made up of the halt, the lame and the brawny frontiersman, sprawled out in the dust. The crowd before each booth elected a captain and each man and woman in line was given a number which they pinned conspicuously to their clothes. A company member was permitted oc casionally to absent himself from line for a short breathing spell and inva riably his place was protected by his fellow watchers. As the hour of 9 o'clock neared in terlopers tried to push in and break the numerical order of the line or ganization. This instantly raised bad blood aad when word was passed tfc-?n the line a little later that the booth officials would not recognize the line organization, but would register the first person to present themselves there were threats of violence and ri oting seemed likely. Trouble was pre vented by the early announcement that the line organization would be respected by the government officials. Cheers and waving of hats greeted the word and from this time forth no sign of trouble was apparent. Ap plicants were admitted to the bootas four at a time and the filing proceed ed rapidly all day long. During the day the heat became in tense, but no serious suffering was reported. The numerous women in line were treated gallantly by the men, who shaded them from the sun with embrellas and furnished drinks from the lemonade venders who plied ineir ranks. The second place of registration named in the proclamation was at Lawton twenty-five miles overland, where similar scenes to those enacted in El Reno were witnessed. OfcNING NOT TO BE DEFERRED. Secretary Hitchcock Telegraphs There can Be Xo Postponement. WASHINGTON, July 11. The complaints from land offices in Okla homa other than El Reno and Lawton that they should be allowed to make registrations from the opening of the reservations are regarded officially as not well founded. The matter was taken up some weeks ago and Delegate Flyan at the time unsuccessfully en deavored to have the other Oklahoma offices included. It is claimed here that the reports of the number of cattle on the land to be opened has been exaggerated and that there are in fact on the Wichita reservation only 72.000 head. The opening of certain lands on Au gust 6, which stockmen are seeking to have postponed, is mandatory. A large part of the 72.000 head on the Wichita lands, it is claimed, can be shiped to market by the allotted time and the rest moved down to the Ki owa grazing lands, which will not be thrown open to settlement.
