rave each a jail sentence of 10 days.
"In the days when we had the open

of law to Bell liquor to intoxicated
persons and it seems to me that it
should be no less a violation now,"
declared the judge.
A. Menoske, proprietor of a soft
Grlnk establishment at Sixth and Gli
lan streets, was arrested by Patrol
men Meacham and Ragan after the
police report&d that samples of "soft"
drinks sold by him tested 8 per cent

made after Delia Fletcher, police
court character, had been arrested on
a charge of drunkenness and admit
ted to the judge that she procured
her drinks at Menoske's place.
Aei-uaed Men to Appeal.
The. same policemen arrested B.
Cledoeheff, proprietor of a place at
41 North Third street, after three
drunken men. it is said, were found
ln his establishment. Some of the
drinks which he was selling, the po
lice said, tested 6 and 7 per cent
... Both Menoske and Gledocheff gave
notice of appeal and their bail was
fixed at $250 each.

who chanced to be at the station
"when the woman entered, filed the
complaint against her and testified
against her in court.
Sleep Mmle Impomlblr.
"Judge, he's a cheerful liar; that's
all I've got to say," she declared at
the conclusion of the prosecutor's
Deputy District Attorney Deich tes
tified that after she was arrested and
taken to the women's quarters in the
jail she made the night ring with her
cries and screams, so that other oc
cupants of the jail and the firemen in

Patrolman Drapeau, who arrested
Iva Freed, was bragging to his com
panions in the lobby that he was the
only policeman who could arrest her
without having her scream and raise
a small riot in the jail, when she
tarted crying and yelling.
Judge Rossman finally fined her
tlO and told her to serve it out in

ply with this if she could go home

Canned Milk Situation.
The butter market was steady yester
day on the better grades of cubes, but
there was slow sale for undergrades. The
canned milk situation is likely to become
a decided factor in the market, as should
the condenseries close it will mean a
substantial enlargement of the supply of
butter fat. Any advance in butter prices
in the near future is, therefore, out of
question. Whether butter prices will re
cede remains to be seen.

The Chicago market letter received yes

"Wheat Prices receded sharply and tne
market ruled heavy until shortly before
the close, when the appearance of short
covering Induced on possibility of a good
export business being done on the decline,
hrotiprht about a recovery of 5 cents from
bottom prices. The close, however, was
not strong. Receipts were small and there
was a slight improvement in the milling
demand which found reflection in slightly
higher premiums for red wheat, although
the premium for hard was easier. No
doubt a good export business was done to
day, but the bulk of it probably was of
Canadian variety ana tne inriuence on
prices In the market unimportant. As
some of our economic students view the
situation, everything In the country from
most vital necessities to the high-priced
luxuries are quoted 'asked' and nothing
bid.' From a speculative viewpoint the
fact must not be overlooked, that hedging
sales make the market susceptible to sharp
recoveries coincident with export buying,
bu! as long as the feeling persists that
deflation is under way, the logical course
should be to make sales on bulges.
"Corn New low prices on the crop were
mad before noon and although a sharp
covering rally occurred later in the ses

to revive confidence in valors. With Sep
tember out of the way the cash market
qu:ckly readjusted itself by declining 25
cents a bushel from yesterday's prices.
"Oats A better class of buying devel
oped on the decline, but apparently not
because of any change in the situation, but
because the price appears attractive. This
theory that prices are relatively too low
may be correct but we would prefer to
await the appearance of something con
structive to stimulate buying power.
"Rye This commodity was the strongest
on the board, with the trade features active
buying of December by elevator Interests
and houses with seaboard connections. The

that in corn and prices were quoted from
2,1 cents to 35 cents lower.
