Competition of Millers and - -Exi)orters
Ix-ads to WlHat Advance.
CHICAGO, Jan. 13. Evidence of
competition etween millers and ex
porters led to a sharp upturn In wheat
today. Final prices although unset
tled, were 3-4 to 4 1-4 net high with
March 1.82 to 1.82 1-4 and Mny
1.72 3-4 to 1.73. Corn gained 1-2 to
3-4: oats 1-4 to 3-8 and provisions 10
On the advance May wheat touch
ed the highest price this season. In
connection with the upturn in values,
interest was attached to news that
Minenapolia mills were buying hard
winter wheat In Nebraska where imost
of the recent export shipments have
been obtained. An apparent pause In
export buying early had a transient
bearish Influence and so too did gos
sip that the Argentine export tax
would be removed.
Gossip that Texas mills were after
wheat in Kansas and that flour de
mand shoiwed improvement were addi
tional bullish factors.
Corn and oats swayed with wheat,
advances being- checked by heavy
hedging sales of corn. On the other
hand, export buying of corn continued.
Hfgher quotations on hogs and ce
reals gave a lift to provisions.

$4 PER WEEK LODGING
Saving of $52 Per Year to Con
tinentals Kept Capital at
Princeton Where Living Was
HARRISON, Ark., Jan. 13. (A. P.)
There was a time in the history of
the United States when $52, repre
senting a year's loss or saving to
members of Congress, was a vital
factor in the consideration of a pro
posed moving of the seat of govern
ment, and, according to an afficer
of that same Congress, $52 a year
was "no trifling consideration."
This bit of history is contained in
a letter written by Charles Thomson,
secretary of the Continental Congress
during the several years of its exis
tence to his 'wife Hannah, an aunt
of President William Herny Harrison
The tetter is dated Princeton, August
21, 1783, the Congress then being in
session In the New Jersey town, and
was addressed to "Mrs. Thomson,
Corner 'of Spruce and 4 Street, Phil,
It was proposed that the residence
of Congress be removed to Elizabeth
town, N. J., but, according to the let
ter, there was opposition on the ground
that "lodging" in Elizabethtown would
cost $4 a week, whereas it could be
obtained for $3 a week in .Prince
ton. Whether the "high cost of liv
ing" in Ellzabethtown finally swayed
the Congress in rejection it is not
disclosed, but history records that
the Congress met in Anapolis, Md., af-
terf leaving Princeton, and at no time
sat at Elizabethtown.
The letter,- in part, which recently
came into the possession of Mrs.
Rex Worthington, of Harrison, a de
scendant of Mr. Thomson, Ipllaws:
"I have received your letters .dated
Monday 12 o'clock and Tuesday 10
o'clock at night and acknowledged the
receipt of them. ...... .Mr. Rend was
misinformed respecting the adjourn-m-nt.
They met on Monday but they
might as well have adjourned till this
time for any business they have don.
1 m very apprecehensive that noth
ing but some calamity will awaken
the states to a sense of their situa
tion. . . . .
". - . , . The President of
Congress lias not provided a house
for himself nor is likely he will find
one here to suit him. I find Elize
bethtown has been talked of at his
table as a proper place for the resid
ence of Congress. He has a rouse
there -which he says has twenty rooms
and which he -will let for the use of
the President. It is true the place is
infested with mosquitoes in summer
and lying low and near marshes may
he liable to intermittents in the spring
and fall, but these are trifling when
it . ' considered that by fixing the
residence of Congress there the value
of his estate, will be increased and he
will have an opportunity of letting
his house at a good rent. But yet
I am inclined to believe this will ne
opposed by his colleagues; for Mr.
C-Jndlt has found a lodging In thiB
town at 3' dollars a week -which en
ables him to lay up more money. And
there is reason to fear that at Ellza
bethtown, which is so near New York,
it will cost him at least four. This
would be a clear loss of 62 dollars
a year which is no trifling considera
tion, and which I daresay will have
due "weight with some of the others.
There are Titer weighty considera
tions which mifsM be mentioned."

PARIS, Jan. 13 (A. P.) The

by the radio officers of the small A
