Governor Taft ourlmed the ne gotiations at Rome and srid that all church questions were progressing to ward a satisfactory settlement. The governor said the action taken by con gress concerning the Philippine islands showed that the American people hon estly desired to help the Filipinos. The Americans were determined the islands should not be exploited by Americans at the expense of the Fil ipinos. Governor Taft predicted that eventually the archipelago will have practically free trade and he congrat ulated the Filipino people on the res toration of peace.

Recent comment regarding the apsficatkm for the traasformatioa of lease cok tracts an school land into sale corn tracts has had the effect at greatly increasing the correspoKdeBce of- tie land commissioner's office, for lease solders all over fixe state are asxiosa to obtain full posaeasioa sad owner ship of their land. Under the law which remained on the statute books of the state from 1573 till 1S37 a lease holder was en titled to purchase the land he occu pied, provided he fulfilled all the ob ligations or the contract and would pay the state the full appraised value of the land. The legislature of 1897 repealed this law. Former Tand Commissioner Wolfe held that the re- peal of the law invalidated the con tracts, and therefore he rejected all applications for the purchase of land Mr. Follmer regrets that he is forced to take a dierent stand, for he -would prefer to have the state keep all of the school land, but he recog nizes the fact that the contracts en tered into by the state under the old law cannct be repudiated. Holders of leases given prior to 1S73 have also asked to buy their rented land, but all of their applications have by both commissioners been rejected, for the law undr which their lease coarracts were given made no provision by which they could buy the land, as was expressly provided in the subse quent act. Any person desiring to purchase land under a lease contract given be tween 1S73 and 1S37 must pay all ex penses of appraisement, review or re appraisement, and they must be will ing to pay the full market value of the land. This will be determined by the value of land in the immediate vicinity. If land in the neighborhood is -worth $25 per acre on the market, the lease holder must pay that amount or else be satisfied with his lease contract. It is estimated that there are up ward cf 1.000 000 acres of land now occupied under leases given between the vears 1S73 and 1S37. THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA.

CORNTAKESJUMP FOUR AND A THIRD CENTS OVER FORMER FIGURES. SOT. USES AT F1F7Y-SEVEI Excitedly, but Appears to Be Standing Firm Shorts in Peck of Trouble Attempts ta Cover Sep tember Contracts Fail. CHICAGO, Aug. 22. Shorts in the com pit were squeezed Tjadly today and raised a tumult that closely re sembled the recent scrimmages eiien. John W. Gates and his clique had July corn cornered. The action in the pit" today was largely the result of the earlier manip ulations. When the Gates crowd was pushing prices skyward the farmer took a hand in the business by sweep ing his bins clean of com and flood ing rMs market with millions of bush els. As a result, the corner collapsed and prices fell headlong until Septem ber corn recently sold at 50 cents. From rampant bulls, the crowd had turned bears to a man and sold short many bushels. Now, the corn to fill September contracts is not in. sight. The bad weather has retarded the ma turing of corn crops until there has been talk that crops may not be har vested until hurt by frosts. Under such conditions shorts want to cover their contract, but holders of the grain are loth to sen. At the opening of trade everybody I tamed bulls. English markets were advancing strongly. Cash stuff was leaving thie market at a good prem ium over September options. Stocks of contract com on hand were rapidly diminishing. There seemed no relief for the shorts other than getting stuff in the pit at the best figure. As a re sult almost 5 cents was added to the price during the morning. September started & to l$g cents higher than yesterday's closing price at 53i to 54 cents and in leaps and jumps rose to 57:i cents. Excitement continued throughout the session. The old bull crowd was buying and the shorts had little or nothing offered to help them out in their plight. Bears tried to comfort each other with the talk that there are 2.500.000,000 bushels cf com slowly rip ening in the fields one of the biggest yields in history but this had no in fluence. At top prices some of the, longs let go in drih lots far profits and prices sided a little. September, however, closed strong and excited, 4 cents higher than yesterday at 57 cents. Other markets on 'change responded to the flurry in corn. Wheat had a good bulge. September selling as high as 72 cents and 71 cents. Septem ber oats sold at 34 cents and closed 1 cent to l1 cents higher at 348 tor 34; cents. September provisions felt the corn strength materially. Hogs were higher on the prospect of higher fodder prices and September pori closed 70 cents higher at 5T5.S5. Sep tember lard 40 cents up at $19.37 aad September ribs 22ii cents higher at $10.12.

WILL H Knows Thwm Wei!, and if P Campaign Drags Too Much He May c Again Callad Upon to Negotiate with Duafcy Sultans. WASHINGTON, Aug, 2L Accord- to Manila papers received at the department today these was a re port current that General George W. Davis would succeed General Chaffee la command of the division, that Davis would not serve very hat after a few months would return to the United States and be succeeded by General Bates, who is now in command of the Department of the Missouri. It is stated that Bates' excellent knowledge of the Moros and his acquaintance with many of the leading sultans and dat tos would be of great value if the campaign against the Moras should continue any length of time. The same paper gives an account of the ravages of smallpox at Apari, in northern. Luzon, and reports that out of 1.700 cases eleven deaths have occurred. The ravages did not ex tend to the troops stationed in that vicinity. Between June 25 and July 10 seventy-two deaths occurred among the enlisted men of the division of the Philippines. Of the total num ber of deaths thirty-five were due to Asiatic cholera. The war department today received the information from General Chaffee at Manila, together with a list of those soldiers who had died.

Griscom of Philadelphia, president of the Interna tional Nevigation company: P. A. B. Widener of Philadelphia and Mrs. Patrick Campbell, the English actress. Mr. Morgan declined to be interview ed, saying he had nothing to give out for publication. Bishop Potter said he had a de lightful trip abroad, but was glad to get home. "I am surprised and sadly disap pointed to find the coal strike still unsettled." he continued. It is cer tainly toe bad that it has not been set tled long since. I supposed it was all over, and the news of its continuation. which greets me here, is the one dark spot an a most joyous home-coming. The anthracite coal operators have all along maintained a false position. They take the stand that they will not deal with the organisations, but insist on dealing with the men as individ uals. Now this is all wrong. Any body of men whose interests are com mon have the right to organise into an association for mutual protection and are entitled to recognition as an organ nation in matters which affect their individual and combined inter ests."

Gcnsrai Conditions Still Favor an Im mense Yield of Corn. The last week was wet and cool in the northern counties and warm and dry in southern and western. The daily mean temperature has averaged about normal in the eastern part of the state and 2 degrees above normal in the western. The rainfall has exceeded an inch in some of the northern counties; in other parts of the state it has been generally less than a quarter of an inch. The cloudy, moist and rainy weath er in the northern counties the last week retarded haying and threshing. In the southern and western coun ties threshing progressed rapidly. The soil is so dry ia the southern part of the' state that little progress was made with fall plowing. Corn has gruwu well in most parts of the state; in the southern part of the state it is now needing rain, while in some south western counties the crop has already been injured by lack of rain; the acre age thus affected is small and gener ally the crop continues to promise a very large yield.
