How Reciprocity Hill Help the Producer Get More and the Consumer Pay Less Editor of The Herald: Opponent! of reciprocity thit It Is impossible to raise the price of wheat for the farmer without rais- ing the price of flour to the.consum- er. They seem to have the mistaken Idea thai the price that .the', farmer eels for wheat has something to do with the high cost of flour. How- ever, if ihese same calamity howlers would only look into the exact figures of the matter they would see It Is possible to give tho farmer a better price for his grain, lower the price of flour to the consumer, nnd still lenve the and the railways a substan- tial profit. The high price of flour is caused by Ihe exactions of the various middle- men through whoso hands all t'he wheat must go. The avcrase LM'lco that the farmer gets for his wheat is 6S cents per bushel, but when he, or the working man buys (lour he pays at the rats of jl.TS per bushel for the heat to make it. The price of.-wheat that one particular Instance, It In noli If we could onl.v find some way to mprobntile that they would do the! mulw these middlemen disgorge a por- out OVERLAND MODEL 51 {is enhanced IliC per cent.'by being made Into flour. Part of this goes to pay ten per cent, dividends on.watered railway clock, part of it goes to live miller's coffers, and ii part goes to swell the wealth of the speculator. Some of this, nnd it is only a small part of the additional value, goes lo pay the men on the railways, in the mills, the few clerks In the ele- vators and retail stores. Just; to "prove this let me give-you a specific instance: In the fall of 1909 same In other vases. It if only fair to assume that they take from every far- mer who ships through them a greater or less amo.uut ranging up to 38 per cent. The farmer loses, but the mnn who buys flour 'pays the high price just the same.
