In the federal court yesterday afternoon the Jury In the suit of J. L. Fuller against Sue A. Hoyt , which had been on trial since Tuesday of last week , brought In a verdict for the plaintiff , fixing his damages at 13,147.73. The plaintiff sued for $1,600. The suit arose from a writ of attachment sued out by Mrs. Hoyt In 1894 against 20,000 bushels of corn belonging to the plaintlft to secure an alleged claim of ? 500. The at tachment was later released nnd Fuller brought suit for $1,600 damages , claiming he had lost that amount on the sale of the corn on account of It being attached. At the time the corn was attached It was worth In the market 65 cents and Fuller claimed he was forced to sell It after the attachment , had been released for 45 cents a .bushel. After the evidence had been submitted tlio defendant demurred to the petition und the court upheld It. Then the plaintiff filed an amended petition setting forth that the seiz ure of $11,000 worth of corn to secure an alleged claim of $500 was excessive and on this showing the Jury brought In a ver dict for the plaintiff for the sum named above. The case It Is said will be appealed. While the Jury In the Fullcr-Hoyt case was out the case of Larry King , the South Omaha man arrested last May with a "flash roll" In his possession , was taken up. King Intends to make a strong fight for his lib erty and has secured the services of John Y. Stone and Emmet Tlnley to defend him. Ills attorneys filed a demurrer to the Indict ment on the grounds that the facts stated did not constitute an offense under the laws of the United States , Inasmuch that the Tennessee wai rants found on King having been cancelled were not In "similitude" of obligations of the United States. The de murrer was argued at length and overruled by Judge Woolson. On motion of King's counsel the trial was continued- until the next term as they stated It would require that time to secure certain Important and necessary evidence on behalf of their client. The trial of the case against diaries Har- berts , charged with breaking Into the letter box of David Bradley & Co. at the post- office was also continued until next term. Hnrborts' presented affidavits to the court in which ho set out that If a continuance was granted ho would be able to show that ho secured the checks which ho attempted to get cashed from Tony Vade , the man who was arrested on suspicion of being Im plicated In the robbery , but later released as the federal authorities did not consider the evidence sufficient to warrant holding him. The charge against Vade , It Is un derstood , wan not brought to the attention of the federal grand Jury. The cases against John Colcman and Charles Clark on the charges of bootlegging were continued by agreement until next term. Carl Allen of Hamburg , Indicted for bootlegging , withdrew his plea of not guilty and entered one admitting his guilt. Sentence tenceIn his case was postponed. Now that both the King nnd Harberts cases have been continued It Is expected that Judge Woolson will adjourn the term today or tomorrow.

From the letter It appeared that the same fellow succeeded In working a num ber of Sioux City merchants for considerable amounts , but unfortunately the , warning sent Mr. Cole arrived just one day too late. Investigations made by the police developed the fact that the man also tried to pass a similar check nt P. C.

( Special. ) The Farmers' Alliance of this county nt a re cent meeting decided to Issue the following advice to Iowa agriculturists as to the ad visability of holding their grain for higher prices ; "Within a short time a steady ad vance up to the 75-cent mark at northwest ern shipping points Is certain as death ; and the farmers have the game In their own hands If they play with a little caution. "Tho reason upon which wp base our faith In the better price for wheat Is that when tlio crop of 1898 was harvested the world's supply from former years was practically exhausted and the bread eating world is now drawing Its supplies from the crop of the present year. In other years , and for many years , the old stocks amounted to hundreds . of millions of bushels when the crop of any given year was harvested ; and In reckoning on the world's supply the gamblers counted the old wheat as well as the new. This year there is no old wheat on which thry can reckon. The low price of wheat during ten years preceding 1S)7 ! ) was due not to a sur plus In any given year , but to the accumu lations of preceding years. That chief cause has now temporarily disappeared. "Again , the acute distress which for three or four years afflicted many farmers In the , northwest Is no longer In sight. Farmers . generally are In better shape to protect . themselves ngnlnst the vulgar wiles of bulls S and bears ; and those animals are perfectly aware of the situation.
