No general rain has fallen over the state since June 26 and conditions are generally becoming serious.

Corn has been badly damaged in all parts. Some south central and southwestern counties, where the drouth has been most severe, report the crop is practically ruined, as far as grain is concerned, while northern and eastern counties report that if rain should come soon there is a possibility of securing from half to a third of the crop. In some places cutting corn for fodder has begun, and a few farmers in the central part of the state are filling their silos with it. The sorghum crops -are also suffering, but the effect of the drouth so far has chiefly been to stop their growth, and with rains reasonably soon they will make a fair yield of grain.

I rhall not be able to Judge until tomorrow 'whether have found a feasible basis for settlement." The foremost questions are what shall be arbitrated, if arbitration is to be resorted to, and what form. of arbitration shall be adopted. Representatives of the employes maintain that their demand for an eight-hour day and time and a half for overtlm is the only concrete proposition under discussion. They insisted to the president In their conference yesterday that the railroads make some definite counter proposal.

If the railroads submitted some proposed form of settlement, they said, they would be ready to discuss negotiations further. The employes are understood to be ready to consent to the principle of arbitration if the contingent proposals of the managers, which the men claim involve rights they have won In years' efforts, are eliminated from 'consideration and if arbitration is conducted by a board upon which all four brotherhoods are represented. detected In it.
