Western Canada it created quite s furore among farmers largely becanso ot what we are now Informed was a wrong interpretation erf its meaning ie general impression Was that pre crop but we are informed by Wood President of the and ot the membersotthe that the price fised only covers balance of tho 1916 la Woods statement to tha among other he IteceLt indications were that the remainder of the 1916 crop was going to be used for gambling purposes which would serve two distinct purposes ono to heneflt a few gambling mani the other was to unsettle the price of all wheat products as well as ot wheat Our board did not believe thafnny legitimate Interest would be benefUted thereby on the contrary that legitimate Interests would be Stopping Gambling with the one purpose mind ot stopping a gambling campaign in the 1916 we fixed a maiimum price of per bushel for that rem nant of the 191G crop this price of on a basis of 1 North Fort The protabililies are tiiai ihis irll serve the purpose of a flat a remnant will probably seJ righ around that It is a very strange thing that the press reports have come out to the effect that we fixed a mail mum price on the crops ot 191S possibly as it has been clear ly understood by those in touch with the situation that our hoard could no deal with an future crop until we go into cooperative touch with the Amer lean legislation doling with tha

evident that our board carTcouie to no conclusions until that time and we come into touch with th American Crops of the In regard 1918 and Os we consider ed But we will do so when we get in shape to take the matter In the we can consider gener al principles it seems to that the correct logicof the sit uation wtinld be that a price should be jrat on wheat that would sufficiently stimulate production to bring out the greatest amonnt ot wheat that can be produced practically that when price Is high enough to give this Btimiilua to it should go no We Trill have to find the common ideating ground between the producer and the it is to that that ground is right where reach the price that will stimulate the highest possible practical produc sarily increasing the price to the or dinary
