The Ktse In Price of Grain Co
Great Excitement In San
Sax Fbancisco, Oct. 1G. The recent
and well-founded increase in the prices
of wheat and barley haa already caused
a demand for and enhanced the value of
grain lands. Practically all over $1 a
cental is profit to the holder of wheat,
and the 30 cents and over advance a
cental means just that percentage of
gain to the grower or the dealer. Cali
fornia is to be $4,000,000 or $5,000,000
richer than was anticipated, and a crop
of lessees, with some purchasers, has
' It is calculated that each advance of
10 cents a cental in the price of wheat
represents an increase of $5 an acre in
the land that produces the grain.
Farmers are not the only beneficiaries.

More Chicago New Women
Chicago, Oct. 16. Another poolroom
patronized by women has been raided
by the police. Seventeen women and
two men were arrested by 'detectives in
room 6 of the Ricardo hotel, 168 Clark
street, and locked up at the Harrison
street police station. Unlike the women
arrested several weeks ago on the South
Side, the prisoners were not fashionable
women, but were from the middle class,
apparently the wives of small shopkeep'
era and artisans.
The arrests came about throngb the
refusal of the manager of the place to
allow a mulatto women to patronize .the
place after she bad played once. With
the desire tor revenge she determined to
retaliate and at once swore oat warrants
for Ralph Doe, keeper of the establish
ment, and for its inmates. Charles
Ropy, the man who was found in the
room, was with the women, as was Ed

Frank Boise of Tacoma, who was visit
ing the family. The "house took fire
daring the night in some manner un
known, and it is supposed most of the
inmates were suffocated. The house,
which was a story and a half frame
structure, was burned to the gro'und.
The eldest child was 14 and the young
est 3. A messenger arrived this morn
ing, saying that the other child and Mr.
Boise cannot live. Boise has a wife and
children at Tacoma. He formerly trav

Seattle, Oct. 15. A special to the
Post-Intelligencer from Whatcom says :
Boiae died shortly before 11 o'clock.
having been horribly burned from bisi
waist up in his efforts to save the chil
dren, four of whom were npstairs.
He was conscious up to a short time
before his death, and able to talk freely..
His story in substance is as follows:
Some time before going to bed down
stairs with the little boy 5 years old, he
rose and built a hot fire in the kitchen
stove, and then went back to bed. He
was awakened about 11 o'clock, he
thought, by smoke, and heat. He j
dropped the little boy out of the win
dow, pulled on his trousers and went up
stairs. lie awakened tbe children there,
and took one of them, a girl 9 years old,
in his arms and carried her down, and j
said to the eldest girl, aged A6: "Go
down with the youngest child." Then
he supposed them safe, the other girl,
aged 7, following. . But it appears that,
instead of going out of the front door, as
they might have done, the children
tried to get out by the kiichen. They
were overcome close by the door, and
burned to death. Tbe girl saved is
terribly burned, but may recover. Boise
ran to a neighbor's a quarter of a mile
away, and back to another neighbor's
nearer by, leaving the flesh from his
hands on the gate at one ' place and on
the window glass at another. There
was no chimney in the house. The
hetove was a poor one, and the pipe pro
jected through the shingle roof, where
the fire doubtless caught.

The farmers complain because they
cannot find markets for all their prod
ucts. How would the doubling of prices
under free silver enable the working
men of the cities and factory towns to
buy more than they do now?
Sam Jones Makes It Clear.
"Suppose," says the Rev. Sam Jones
of Georgia, "the government owned all
the gristmills in this country and con
gress should enact a law that all corn
should be, ground by the government
mills free ' and that while corn was
worth but 18 cents a bushel the govern
ment would stamp the sacks of meal so
that it would bring 50 cents a bushel
and do this for nothing. It is a very
hard matter to keep meal above the
price of corn. "

dollar is just as valuable in their hands
as it is in the hands of the wage earner.
