Dun & Co.'s annual trade nnd crop report printed below Includes reports from eighty-two counties in Nebraska , nnd Is pre pared with great care by the correspondents of the Mercantile agency. It has always been a truthful and accurate showing of crop conditions nnd will be found Interest ing to every Nebraska reader. It will bo ob served that corn promises well almost everywhere , but that small grains are gen erally In poor condition. The winter wheat nnd rye crops are a practical failure. Oats Is not promising. The acreage of flax Is Tory small and tnmo hay was badly hurt by the severewinter. . Fruit Is hardly worth mentioning. Collections are slow nearly everywhere and altogether the outlook Is not particularly encouraging. However , It Is gratifying tolcatu that the farmers are In better condition financially than usual and can stand a partial failure with less distress than heretofore. There Is a good deal of holdover grain anil prices of hogs and cattle are high enough to malto up in largo measure for the shortness of agricultural products. The report from country battles is encoura ging and in spite of dull collections country merchants scum to bo In fair condition. AiliuuH County. Crop prospect is good , but backward. Winter wheat , owing "to a dry winter and spring , will probably not average over half n crop ; acreage about the same as Inst year. Oats promises to bo fair ; not much rye or spring wheat. Corn , which is the principal crop , Is a good stand and promises well at this timo. Ground is In splendid condition and cMirything growing rapidly. Farmers generally are prosperous , but this is a dull season for trade and merchants are not ap parently doing much. Collections are slow to fair and money tight. Hanks loaning hut little ; seem to bo awaiting developments ; however , are believed to bo on a linn basis and It is thought will pull through in gooi' shape. Antclopo County. Corn is the principal crop throughout the entire county and the acreage this year is reported larger than last , though in some pjrtlons moro diversified. Prospects are more promising tlian In former years at tills tlmo and indications point to an enormous yield. Considerable oats , wheat anil rye are grown , and at some nomts small grain has been injured by high winds. Collections arc Blow , but business conditions are good. Itimnrr County. Principal crop in ' 02 was wheat. A largo yield was .obtained , and this year farmers have about 25 per cent moro small grain sown , in fact , all they can possibly handle. The continuous high winds in the spring blow out probably 10 per cent of all grain BOWII , still leaving a small percentage in ncrcago over tlmt of last year. Grain , al though backward , presents a good appear ance and with no misfortune from drouth or hail , will bo highly satisfactory. Low prices make collections harder than a year Ugo. lllulno County. The principal crop last year was corn , wheat and rye , the acreage this year being about the samo. Wheat and i-.vo have been Injured some by winds and drouth ; tr.ido fair ; collcetjons slow as to old accounts.

The acreago. of corn is probably 10 per cent larger than usual. _ Oats somewhat increased , but wheat about the bamo. The outlook is excellent for an abundance of all crops , fall wheat espe cially promising a good yield. Collections are a little slow and trade dull. Iloyil County. Wheat and corn are the principal crops nnd the acreage this year Is increased. The Wheat prospect Is not the best but corn is ilolng well and with favorahlo weather will malco a good crop\ Collections are slow and trade only fair. llox llutto County. % The principal crop of ' 03 was wheat , acreage of which Is double this year , and there is considerable moro corn. Crops are tate In this section , and at ono tlmo appre hension was felt concerning the dry weather , but this has been removed to a considerable extent. Collections and trade are fairly I ' good. A number of bank deposits have been withdrawn , nnd moreor less anxiety Is | expressed over financial reports from the cast. Jlrowii County. Wheat and corn were the principal crops last year , and were a three-fourths failure on account of a cold , wet spring. Acreage this year about the same , and present pros pects only fair. The army worm ana hot winds have spoiled prospects for n largo yield. Collections nro slow ; merchants complaining bitterly , and many going out of business , The prosperous farmers appear to bo dealing In hogs and cattlo. Iliinuin County. Crop outlook appears very favorable. Corn , which Is the principal crop , shown an excellent stand , while oats promises an av- crago yield and rye fair. Wheat In some portions of the county has been retarded by the dry weather and in the bouthcast portion tion was considerably iiamnged by hall , On the whole , however , fanners appear conll- [ lent of a very fair general crop. The money stringency has affected general trade some what and collections are qulto slow , banks are making no outsldo loans and deposits arc well rundown.

Cherry County. Crop conditions at present are qnlto favor able. Wheat Is looking good , rye is fair , al though the heavy winds of late damaged It somo. Corn prospects are fair , though but a small amount Is raised , wheat being the principal crop. Prospects at present are far ahead of last year.

For a now coun try , people nro doing well. Clay County. In 1S'.I2 the principal crops were corn , wheat and oats respectively , the acreage In other grain being very small. This year moro winter wheat was sown , but owing to the drouth many farmers plowed up and planted corn Instead , thu acreage of which Is larger. It 1ms n steady , lic.itthy growth , as good us over , and will yield more per acre than heretofore. Wheat will not bo moro than one-half a crop ; same may bo said of oats. Potatoes are in fine condition. Con siderable sorghum cane was planted ; is in excellent condition nnd will make a largo crop. Fruits have been injured by cold sprinc. Collections are good and merchants nnd farmers prosperous. The advance in the price of stock has enabled most farmers to get out of debt and the financial condition of the community was never as good us now. Cnlmx County. _ The prlnclpabcrop Is corn , the acreage of which is ID per cent greater and prospects nro excellent , In fact never looked as well , Wheat , oats , rye and llax are also raised to some extent , acreage remains about the same , but prospects less favorable.

The principal crops last year were corn , wheat and o.its , Wheat acreage sown in creased for this year 10 per cent , but this was cut down fully that much by hail and drouth on account of which small grain of all kinds will not amount to moro than half a crop. Corn acreiigo has Increased " 0 per cent and if , voather continues favorable the crop will bo at least an average one. In some portions prospects were never better than now. Owing to the stringency of the money market and the fact that banks nro not loaning , collections are slow and busi ness rather dull at present. I'rilllklhl County. * The principal crops are corn , wheat and oats. The acreage of the former Is increased , oats being about the same. Yield in all small grains will bo cut short for want ol rain to prolx.bly one-fourth of a crop. Corn Is quite promising und looks hotter than at this time last year , although about two weeks behind.

Gf-nornl ditching" Kxplalns the Plans of the Democrat" . WASHINGTON , Juno 25. General Catchlngs of Mississippi , who was a member of the last house committee ou rul6s , m speaking of the legislation which will occupy the attention of congress at the "special session this autumn , said : "Tho repeal of the Sherman law and thorcforin tariff are the two great subjects wttti which wo will have to deal. The numerical strength of the free silver vote is not' cer tain. It is certain , however , that many members will oppose the repeal of the Sherman law unless something nearer to free coinage is offered. When the tariff debate springs up every protected industry in the country will have its report upon the floor. With opposition so strong , it will be abso lutely necessary to m&'dify the rules , else nothing can bo done. jEvery ono remembers the scenes which marked the closing days of the lust congress. Day after day was wasted In senseless motions which had no object save delay. With these rules again in force no vote could be readied. "Tho committee on rules thoroughly un derstands this. If I am nol mistaken , when congress meets n different order of things will obtain. Last winter the committee on rules formulated n provision which should meet the case. It was to the effect that it shall bo always in order to call up for con sldcration a report from the committee on rules. The working of it will bo this : Sup- poio that after a month of delay the com mittee on rules reports that the next Thurs- duy shull bo set n\ \ > art for a vote upon the reiKiul of the Sherman" act and moves the previous question. Mow the Mnjorlty Mny Ilulc , "Sotting aside the day will bo of Httlo effect as that clay might ho wasted in filibus tering , but if the majority wishes to no business , it can vote down the motion for the previous question , which will leave it open to amendment. An amendment can then be offered , setting the vote for a cer tain hour and if curried by the majority , dilatory motions will bo crushed. The rule declares that ufter the report of the com mittee is mudo. but one motion to adjourn shall bo entertained. It will bo as strong r method of cloturc as can bo effected and I have little doubt of Its adoption. By this plan the business of the house will bo placed entirely in the hands of the majority and upon the majority will fall the praise or blame. blame.lth " \\lth regard to the sentiment of the south concerning the repeal of the Sherman act , the people not only there , but in other sections of the country , uro doing moro thinking ypon this subject than over before. Eighteen months ngo tho-south was strongly in favor of free coinage , but it is not so to day. Sentiment is changing. If iislccd to hazard n guess , 1 should say that It Is now about half and half , The causa of sound money has game * ! ground very rapidly. "Personally , r favor the repeal of the Sherman law.

KANOOOX , .Tuna 05. For several nays the Moslems have been preparing to celebrate a religious festival today. This morning they were forbidden by Mr. Fleming , the British magistrate , to sacrifice u cow near the Hindoo temple , Mr. Fleming had threat ened yesterday to Issue this order and the Mohammedans were greatly excited. Just before the hour of sacrifice the police ap peared near the temple and the Mohamme dans began stoning them. The police charged without firing , but the Mohammedans hold their ground stubbornly and fought back with sticks and stones. Mr. Fleming , who had gone to the spot ns n special policeman , was wounded. The police men withdrew , got reinforcements and charged again without effect. Mr. Fleming then ordered them to lire , A volley was delivered at close quarters. Twenty Mohammedans fell dead und many moro were wounded severely. ' Called Out the Mllllnry. As the Mohammedans still refused to dis perse , the military were called out. Four companies charged on the double quick with fixed bayonets. The Mohammedans dis persed slowly nnd still fighting , although many had been wounded in the charge of the troops. They gathered again , however , a short distance away from the temple. They were hardly dispersed before they re assembled in another street. A desultory fight between them and the troops has been in progress all the afternoon. Tonight all the military are occupied in clearing the streets.

Flvo other members of the family nro seriously 111 nnd two of them were not ex pected to survive the night. As near as can bo learned from friends ot the family , they are led to believe that the Lchulgs were poisoned while eatlne supper last Thursday night , but can offer no cauio of the poisoning. Since then all of them have been sick , and the attending physician said ho was unable to Tri-slgnalo the natur * of the poison. All Were Anoctoil. Conrad Lehnlg Is n tailor , who has till shop In the front part of his residence at the above named pinco. Ills family consists of his wife , two daughters , Hoslna and Matilda , n son , D. W.

Just before starting for the opera house they p.-vrtook of n llpht supper and on their rotmn were ull taken with a painful Illness.

In spite of the efforts of the physician Lydla continued to sink and last evening death came to her relief. Mrs. Lehnlg Is danger ously ill and it is not thought she will sur vive the night , and Mrs. Theodore Lehnlg Is regarded as being In a serious condition. Hosina is much better than any of the fam ily and thinks she was fortunate because she was so excited about the details incident to her graduation that she hardly tasted any food that nigh' , . Her father and brother are believed to bo out of danger , but are still very weak. Those who were able to see visitors attributed their 1J1- ness to cither the vinegar used on the I l- tuco or the lard used In cooking , and do not believe that thry were poisoned by any one , as" they have no known enemies.
