The grand Jury story, together with
the testmolny of Hart, are accepted as
the strongest points- Jn the state's
case. The testimony waa allowed In
both former cusea, It having been ask
ed for by the court lit the sentencing
of Nell Hart in order to assure the
court that Hart was guilty as he plead.
Considerable interest hinges about the
decision on this point, as, should this
testimony be not allowed, in the pres.
ent case, the state would have little on
which to convict the pair of conspir
acy to shoot their way out of Jail, as
Hart and Stoop testified.

CAN DECLARE U. S. WAR
ENID, Okla., Oct. 2. (U. P.) No
representatives of the league of nations
can declare war for United Slates tin
der any circumstances. Governor Cox
declared here. The league would have
had power to declare war for us if the
views of the league to enforce peace,
and ex-president Taft had prevailed

Will Not Slay Cost Slldo
OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. 2. (U. P.)
Opening markets of tho world to
American surplus through the league
of nations will not check legitimate de
cline in the cost of living'. Governor
Cox asserted here.
Failure of the United States to enter
the league and asisist in opening world
markets caused the price of cotton,
wheat, corn and other raw materials
to drop, while "large consumers of
raw materials in the United States ar
taking unfair advantage of the-situation
by cheating the producer on one
hand and exploiting the consumer on j
the other hand." Governor Cox' said.
before persisted again today hut failed
to find reflection in the market and
liquidation carried prlcea to new low
levels. Cash price fully responded to
the decline In futures with tho domes
tic milling demand only fair.
Minneapolis advices reported millers
there filling their requirement with
Canadian wheat at materially loweu
ith'h. mauaiicians are ociniung i
viow tho world wheat situation as be
ing Indicative of plentiful supplies in
stead of a deficiency. The decline In
prices might be considered remarkable
In view of the gigantic foreign buying
since the new crop was brought In and
the attitude recently maintained by the
producers In holding wheat off the
market. , The explanation Is really
simple; economic conditions have re
versed and the process of deflation la
uorn over night sentiment was
bullish based on reaction theory but
the fallacy of buying futures with cash
corn a drug on the market and declin
ing In a radical way was soon realized
and the pressuro on the market of
purchases made yesterday carried
prices to new low levels on the crop.
There waa absolutely nothing in the
news to give holders any confidence
that their position Is correct. The
.ountry is confronted with an over
production of all feed grains, the for
eign outlet which we enjoyed during
the war has been wiped out and the
producer must make sacrifices to do
mestic consumer in disposition of the
ast surplus. Not only have we more
grain than needed but the American
public Is imbued with the idea that
lower prices are Inevitable and the
buying power is down to the Irreduc
ible minimum. At the' moment there
is no prospect of other than temporary
rallies which will serve only to w-eak-en
the technical position. .. '"
Oats Selling pressure throughout
the session was too great for buying
power and tho lowest figures on the
criip were made today. Cash oats
wealt, if not weaker than futures with
&o. 2 white selling mostly at one cent
under the December price. Nothing
but an active export demand would
give Independent strength to thls grain
and there is certainly nothing of the
sorton the horizon at this time.
X Rye Interest in this commodity Is
lacking and fluctuations are domin
ated almost entirely by the action of
NEW YORK, Oct. 2. Tho railroad
stocks stood out prominently on the
upside today and public participation,
on the high grade railroad shares ana
this Is the most gratifying feature
connected with the upturn in values In
the rail department. Industrial stocks
were inclined to mark time but great
er firmness was displayed in this
quarter. The good effects produced
by the recent railroad legislation, the
rate award of the I. C. C. and the
rail valuation announced by the same
body some time ago are becoming
more pronounced. We look for a con
tinuation of the rising tendency in
railroad stocks. We think especially
well of Atchison, Union Pacific, and
New York Central.
MehiiKl every linxlnewi there must be a definite ,
policy to make that business successful. And In .these,,
days of uncertain values It is well for the buyer to
turn to an Institution that ha a clear conception of
its responsibilities to the buying public.
Our pricps always welcoino comparinon. Kuril
price Is marked In plain figures and that figure Is
tho lowest compatible with reliable quality.
MIsKtaiemniit or exaggeration haa no place where
quality Is of the highest and prices are low. We ,'
shall endeavor to always maintain that policy.
