The market, aa a wlioit, was in fair condition. Packers all seemed to want beef steers and there waa a fair movement of the more de&lrabie killers at steady 10 s.rong prices. Under reasonably free bulng ttiu offering changed hand In good season, at least the early arrivals did. Cows and hellers were also In good de mand and they, too, commanded steady to strong prices.- The early trade waa In a good, healthy condition, and, aa a rule, satisfactory to the selling Interests. The stocker and feeder trade was ex tremely dull and prices very weak. The fact Is the trade on that kind of cattle is the next; thing to dead. Cattle that are too thin to work off on the killers ars hard to move and the country can hardly rea.ixe bow poony they are selling. , The cause. Is to be found In trie fact that oorn fields7 are In many cases not ready for cat tie to be turned in, many farmers not hav ing finished picking corn before the heavy snow dine on. All winter pasture is buried and that means that cattle have to be fed on stacked hay of fodder. With the supply of such feed running low the ooantry is not likely to buy many stock cattle at the present time.

John L. Webster does not think anything good can come of' the proposed conference on hank guaranty between the governors of Nebraska. "Kansas and Oklahoma. Mr. Webster was the principal attorney In the cases wherein the federal courts enjoined the enforcement of the Nebraska and Kansas guaranty laws. . Speaking of the conference asked by 1 Governor Haskell, Mr. Webster says: "I do not see how any good can come out of a conference by the governors of Oklahoma. Nebraska and Kansas over the bank guaranty law as proposed by Gov ernor Haskell. The federal courts have enjoined the enforcement of the laws In Nebraska and Kansas and I have no doubt that the federal courts would enjoin tha enforcement of the law In Oklahoma If a proper suit were Instituted In a proper tribunal. "There Is something fundamentally wrong and vicious (n principle In legisla tion which proposes. elUier directly or In directly, to lake the property of one man and give It to another as a gratuity, or to compel one man or company to help pay the debts of another whn he Is under no obligation, contractual or otherwlae, to do so. Bttaal Rights to All. "The provision of the constitution which guarantees 'the equal protection rf the laws' carries with It the idea that all men are entitled to equal rights In prop erty as well as In pr-rson. Any law which takes the property of one man and g'ves It to arioth.-r for nolhlng Is Irani robbery of the one and a conferring of fpeclal privil eges upon the other. Such things are fundamentally wrong- and they cannot be made right by any species or form of state legislation. "The bank guaranty law belonKS to a class of legislation that has no proper plsce In a republican form of government. I 60 not - believe thet these lams would have been pasted In either Nebraska, Kan sas or Oklahoma Lf.the political agitation In their favor had been . combatted by thinking men aad by reasonable methods. When the agitation was, started It was permitted to run Its course without oppo sition, with the result that the three states named stand out prominently as having: departed from sensible and conservative business methods and as having, adcpled a system of paternalism that la In viola tion of the national constitution and out of harmony with the well being of a free people. Should the governors if the three states hold the conference proposed by Governor Haskell the beet thing they can do would be to advise the people of tlielr states to repeal the bank guaranty laws. FRISCO SIGNS TO DISAPPEAR After Jaaaarr 1 Rock Island Will Have Explosive Possession of Ita Omaha Office. Beginning January L no more Frisco business will be transacted directly In the offices of the Rock Island line at Four teenth .and Farnam streets. An order haa been received from rtie ' Chicago offices stating that the divorce of the two Inter ests will take active effect on New Tear s day. During the past five or six years the (lock Island llnea and the Trlsco system have had Joint offices In Omaha. Prior to hat time the Frisco Interests had an of fice of their own and It is now consid ered likely that separate beadjuarteri will be maintained in Omaha in the fu ture. "For the present, at least, a traveling freight agent will probably be In charge of the Frisco business in Omaha." said an official of the Hock Is. and lines. "It is the general impression, however, that the old system of two offices will be adopted, al though we have no advice to that effect. We have been ordered to discontinue the Frisco business here and the signs of that railroad will be erased from our windows."
