U,a Possible for them to!
"He! The effect of these condi
tions will have to be reckoned
with, ana when the time ap
proaches for receipts of new
w heat to come, and little or
none arrives, and the millers
and flour jobbers undertake to
supply their needs from barren
harvest fields, then will begin
the pinch and a realization of
actual conditions. To be sure,
Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma and
Nebraska are expected to ' pro
duce fair results, but the harvest
will be late: the. quality must
necessarily be damp and more
or less unfit for milling for some
time to come, because of the
heavy rainfall the last few days;
and, in any event, much will be
required at home to start up the
mills that have long been idle
for lack of supplies: and even
the soft winter wheat states,
which last year had a surplus
market, must this year them
selves be a competitor with local
millers for supplies in the South
west. Accordingly it is difficult
k see where stocks can increase
for weeks to come, and there is
an extreme probability of wit
nessing a constant decrease of
the visible supply throughout
the month of July, where a year
ago it increased 18,000,000 bush
els during that month."
Local conditions, however are
different. Those who are famil
iar with conditions in this sec
tion have been quoted that the
general yield will run from 20. to,
40 bushels to the acre, averaging
all the crops tributary to Mad
ras. Balfour Guthrie & Co are
quoting 63 cents. A conserva
tive estimates puts the wneat
crop at 75,000 acres. Averaging
20 bushels to the acre this means
the production of a million and
a half bushels of wheat. At the
quoted price, 63 cents, the wheat
crop of Northern Crook county
is worth nearly a million dollars.
General harvesting will begin
between the present date and
the last of the month.

After his conference with Mr.
Hearst, Senator Stone, David II. Fran
cis and others, Speaker Clark issued
tho following statement:
"Today in the national convention
and outrageous aspersion was cast up
on me and through mo upon the demo
cratic party by ono who, of nil men,,
ought to be the last to besmudgo or
betray his friends or his party. So
far as I am personally concerned, it is
enough to say that tho charge which
reflects upon my personal or party In
tegrity Is utterly and absolutely falBe.
I might afford to forget myself, but
I am, by tho choice of the democratic
majority of the house of representa
tives, tho ranking democratic official
in public life. I cannot be false or cor
rupt without reflecting upon my party
In the most serious way.
"Any man who would enter into an
alliance with any selfish Interest or
privileged class of this country to gain
tho nomination for the presidency Is
unworthy of the presidency and of the
speakership of the house. If I have
not entered into such an alliance, then
the democrat, however distinguished,
who wantonly charges me with this
act is a traitor to the democratic party
and to his professed friendship to me.
"I am not hero to plead for a nom
ination or attempt to influence any
man's political action. Let every man
proceed in this .convention according
to the expressed will of his constitu
ents. I nsTc' no undue consideration
from any man, bo ho friend or foe, but
I demand exact Justice from every
democrat, either in this convention or
throughout tho nation. With William
J. Bryan and his charge mado in the
convention today, the issue is proof or

that issue. CHAMP CLARK."
COMMONER WINS VICTORY

Baltimore William Jennings Bryan
won the most remarkable victory of
his career jvhen he forced through the
passage by a two-thirds majority of a
radically progressive lesolution put
ting tho democratic convention on
record as opposing the nomination for
president of any Candidate allied In
any way with J. Plerpont Morgan,
Thomas F. Ryan, August Belmont or
any other member of the "privilege
His was a move unhenrd of in the
history of politics and it proved be

ocratic party. The resolution follows:
"Resolved, that in this crisis In our
party's enreer and in our country's his
tory, this convention sends greetings
to the peoplo of the United States and
assures them' that the party of Jeffer
son and Jackson Is still the champion
of popular government nnd equality
before tho law. As proof of our fidel
ity to tho peoplo wo hereby declare
ourselves opposed to tho nomination
of'any candidate for president who is
tho representative of or under any
obligations to J. Jler'pont Morgan,
Thomas F. Ryan, August Belmont or
any other member of the privilege
hunting and favor-seeking claBS."
Bryan's resolution as origlnully in
troduced called for the withdrawal of
Ryan and Belmont as delegates from
Virginia and New York respectively,
but tho Commoner' witlidrow this pro
position after It lmd been attacked aB
