LOWTHER Editor of the Herald: Dear Sir,-In aoEwer to C. W. Low-tber's letter in Friday's Issue, 1 would thank you for space to reply to same and I may say every one will agree with him when he states he is not an engineer, a fact obvious to any of your readtru. His remarks re our natural fll'sr beds ars abiiCiinl for an/ tnan with local knowlndge of nature of t;iit eaconntered here !:i Hood times. . I wonder If 'sl\: Lowther ever figur ed -what the late epidemic oo4t ihe city. It is evident he was not on? rf lUe onlortuhata ones. For hJa inform-\ ation I enclose figures from our local ! press and approximate cost of same: ' Number of cases............. 119 Coat to city ................. �1,000 Cost to individuals at low estimate, ?2.T................... 2,975 Assuming half of them were were wage earners. 6 weeks (lowest) wages at\$2.50 per day for 60 men ............. 5,400 Lobs of life value uuestimable. The above figures are taken on lowest wages paid in this city, and I think your readers will agree that the estimate is very low. "His knowledge of dynamite is also on a par with other atatements made. He evidently intends to erase from the map this city which some of our citizens have had so much trouble to place there. If Mr. Lowther would extend his reading he would find that the proposed system does and is regularly removing 97% of the typhoid germ in cities where established, and his reference to Alderman Fawkes' statement "�SVinnipeg. Aug. 15. - �Winnipeg wheat closed 3 cents higher for October. 3% cents higher for December, and 3>i cents belter for May. Oats ) were %c up tor October and %q higher for December. Barley dropped nic. Flax was a-TiJc better for October. II4C higher for November and 4',.iC^for December. .Minneapolis wheat was 5Vi cents higher for September option, 5 cents higher for December option and 4v8 cents better for .May option. All markets ended In a closing rally which took quotations up to the high points. The margin of fluctuation was widest in Winnipeg, being nearly 10 cents. Wheat looked e.\ceptionally weak in the morning on very much lower cablfes and the report on the Saskatchewan crop did n*t help. The statistics were also on bear side. Within 30 minutes wheat had broken more i than it did all day Monday. Snov.-I sent out a very bullish report which turned the tide compiBtely. It started a strong bullish sen^timent which took wheat up nearly 10 cents. The trade was entirer>- speculative. The } smallest amount of'straight buying of j the month took place. The exporters j refused to trade until the prices set-i tied down. The public, commission I men and others had a great time scalping and spreading in one of the heavie.=it trades of the season. The cash demand was inditterent. Oats were poor and only the first grades * of wheat were wanted. Engineered by Germans London, Aug. 15.-The Daily Telegraph today says that the opinion is \ ["freely expressed m the local wheat! market that the rise in wheat prices ! was the result of a conspiracy on the J part of the German-Americans in Chi- ] cago to force prices up and embarrass the entente allies. "The rise is wheat is condemned Iiere as unnecessary," says the Daily Telegraph "and the whole business .seems to have been engineered in America."
