DISLIKE TRIAL METHODS
Representatives of four large packing
companies have gone to Washington with

been browbeaten before the jury and

Only Successful Wheat Corner.
From the Newark News.
80 far as known -to 'date the
only really successful coiner in
wheat referred in script tires as
'corn" was. that by Joseph
when he presided over the des
tines of Egypt, btit it will be
recalled that ho hnd more than
human aid in estimating the
size of forthcoming harvests.
When domestic wheat crops
were much smaller oud facili
ties for transporting and stor
ing them at distributing points
were much less eflicient, per
haps 30 years ago,, there were
several so-c a 1 1 ed" successful
minor corners in wheat and
corn, but the only successful
corner in wheat within 20 years
was that engineered by Hutph
inson at' Chicago in 1888, when
he put the price up to 82 a bush
el, and made the shorts settle at
that. Records of similar at
tempts include Kegne's loss of
$2,000,000 in wheat in 1879,
Ilandy's similar loss of $1,600,
000 in 1881, Harper's dropping
$4,000,000 on the cereal in 1887
and young Leiter's parting from
$7,000,000 in his attempted.
wheat corner of 1808. In addi
tion to these there were failures
to corner lard by . IcGeoch in
1883 and Cudhahy in 1803, in
which each lost, it was said
about $2,000,000, and. Deacon
White's memorable corner in
corn in 1802, in which he lost
$1,000,000, which he sub
sequently paid with interest.
Athletes the Best Oii fin efts.
Many army and navy officers bold
that rational athletics form a very vat
uablo training for future Boldiers and
imllorr. On thu United States war
ablp Wisconsin, flagship of tbe Asiatic
squadron, is published a monthly pub
lication called tbe Badger, which
says: "In looking at the work
done with our battery we And that

players, Is the captalu of the alx

gun Smith, the captain of tbb team,

STRICKEN BY A TORNADO
Hundreds nrc Rendered Homeless--Hi'
100 Are Dead.
SNYDER, Okla., May ll.-At mid
night oil criilmutoH of the number of
Ihtioii'h killed by last night's toi undo
exceeded 100 and lfiO persnus were In
jured, more than 40 seriously.
Nltifcty-llve are known tobodnd,
cfveral mo missing and a number of
the wounded aru lu critical condition.
Tho havoc wrought by the tornado
Is complete. Out of a town of 1000
people not more than a score of houses
are Intact, wuile two-thirds of the
l.ulldlngs are totally wrecked.
Tho storm formed south, of Olustco,
near tlie Texas line, and took a north-ctiflU-rly
course through a well-settled
flection. At 8 o'nlo k it was observed
by the people of Snyder, but the usual
fiiuuul-sbaped formation wus lacking,
and, though the rnnr was plainly heard
for sometime before the storm broke,
many with of tho opinion thai It was
u hull storm. Within a few minutes
the sky became suddenly dark arid ft
terrific downpour of rain began, last
ing for Beveral minutes, when It stop
ped as suddenly as it had'eornmenced.
A few moments of omlnious calm fol
lowed, aud then the tornado 'struck,
tearing buildings to pieces as though
they were made df -paper. Many peo
ple who hud thought to take advautage
of the calm to seek refuge In cellars
were caught in tbe streets between
buildings, where some were lifted high
In tbe air and dashed to the ground as
thoogb hurled from a catapult, while
others were struck by flyluc debrisand
crushed almost beyond .recognition.
Those whp reoralned In their bouses,
except iu a few blocks in the south
eastern corner of the town, fared no
better Tbe frame structures col
lapsed like eggshells, burying occu
pants uuder tbe debris, Jkil ling, crash
ing and maiming.
Six of the eight hotels were torn to
pieces, burying mauy In tiro 'wV&kage.

many cottages stood, not one is left,
