(OMAHA PRICES DRAW GRAIN Farmers Troduce a Few Hundred Thousand Bushels. DEALING GOES ON WITH CORN 70 (Iris Bayers Take 200 Cars at Ne braska Cera far glTO.OOO, bat Farmers Field Wheat fer fl at Omaha. Corn at i to 74 cents and wheat at Sl.W on the Omaha market Is drawing the grain out of the country like a magnet would pull away steel shavings. , Not only la the grain coming to the Omaha market, but Chicago and eastern buyera are on the floor of Uie exchange daily closing deals 'for large amounts of corn at the extremely higlr' price of 6 to (S'i cents. Mrw Co.. Chicago dealers, bought IW cars of com from the Kiddle Grain com pany Vf Omaha at a price above cents, which la probably the highest price ever paid for corn on the Omaha market by several cnts. The cash In this one deal alone amounted to about $170,000 and it Is eatlmated that some $350,000 worth of Ne braska grain was sold in the trading room of the Omaha Grain exchange to eastern buyers since 11 o'clock Thursday. J. H. Hamilton sold SO.O'iO bushels, while other dealers have sold from 20.W to lno.noo bush els at the record-breaking price. While the report is frequently circulated and It Is generally understood that the gT8in 1s almost all out of the country, every time the price of corn goea up to W cents or over the farmers promptly pro duce some liw.non to 30.000 bushels, and It Is snapped up at once by the buyers In Omaha. Wheat does not come In as readily. Thouch the top price for spring wheat has readied as high as $1.01 the farmers de clare they will sell it when it reaches $1 delivered In Omaha. ' Report of Government. Government reports March 1 showed that DS per cent of the Nebraska wheat crop, or ll.S37.or bushels, still remained in the hands of the farmers. During March and April but a small amount of the wheat haa been sold In Omaha, but as the price has advanced a few cars are coming In. Grain dealers estimate that there Is still 14 per cent of the wheat crop of 1907 in the hands of the producers who stand a good chance for securing tl for every bushel. Corn has been pouring In during March and April. Some 34 per cent of the Ne braska crop was In the hands of the farm ers March ' 1. It is estimated that only about 30 per cent is now In the bins of the growers, but dealers are some times sur prised the way corn appears when the mar ket gets around the 70c mark. Only once has the price of corn been anywhere near as high in Omaha since the organization of the exchange. This was in 19TTJ when there was a corner at tempted at Chicago, which sent the price soaring. But little corn sold at the price which had been forced to the point where the market waa at a standstill. But the prices at present are not caused by such artificial methoda and the buying and aelllng Is almost as active aa It has been when corn waa around 60 cents. Old dealers say that in 1890 prices were paid for Nebraska corn at country sta tions, which If the grain was shipped to' Omaha, would be equivalent to 71 cents.

TRACT F0R,NEW TARGET RIFLE Exteaaloa of the Range at Fort Crook . la Ordered by the Got. ernmeat. A board of officers, consisting of Csptain E. R. Crissman, Captain Joseph H. Gohn and Second Lieutenant J. M. Churchill of the Sixteenth United States Infantry at Fort Crook, has been appointed to con elder propositions for the purchase or lease of suitable land In the vicinity of Fort Crook for a new target range. The board will meet at Fort Crook on May 15. The tracts under consideration lie southward from Beilevue and embrace sev eral hundred acres of land now used for farming purposes. No deflnilte selection has yet been made, nor is It known that these racts will be selected. The fact re mains In any event that It is the determina tion of the government greatly to enlarge the Fort Crook target range if the neces sary territory can be secured for any rea sonable sum. The present target range on the reservation is entirely too contracted for the modern, long range, small arms and a larger range ia necessary. The an nual target practice for the Fort Crook commands must now be undertaken st long distances from the post. This year the two battalions will go to Watertown, S. D., for target practice. Involving heavy expense for transportation, which the government hopes to avoid in future by getting a range nearer the fort.

Bishop Goodsell in transmitting the re commendation of the blahops to the quad rennial conferennce of the Methodist church in Baltimore, advocated certain changes in the noted paragraph 18 whereby the pro hibition of "dancing, playing at gamea of chance, attending theaters, horse races, cir cuses, dancing parties or patronising dancing schools." be stricken out. The report haa not as yet been acted upon, but it will be given due consideration. In the opinion of lr.

Matter of Individual Conscience. "I do not know as this action will widen the acoite and bring more offenses under the ban of the church, but It leaves the matter entirely with the individual and the individual's conscience. What ia wrong for one man may not bo wrong for anotliir, and what is right for one man may not be right for another. Mutters of this sort should be left entirely with the Individual to be dealt with by hira as he Sees fit. ac cording to his scriptural guidance. - "I can remember t lie time (and I can still look back to a young birthday! when it was considered a crime in sjme MelhoilUt circles to have music, especially violin music, in the church. But we have out grown that. Just because tiie violin for merly waa associated v.' tin the dance hall and the billiard table formerly associated with the saloon, there la no real wrong in the violin or the billiard table In them selves. 1 "This in the first time the bishops have recommended a change in this rule regard ing the catalogue of offenses against wrongs."
