OTTAWA, Aug. the going ut of existence of the wheat control oard on Tuesday of this week, the lUsIness of buying and Belling Can- da's most important agricultural pro- oiico more become tho tusl less of private Gnns and Individuals. Vith the passing of the board, there will also come to au end the fixing prices for flour and .wheat and here is considerable Anxiety as to vhat the immediate effect of tho re- tprsltou of the old-order of things, with prices based upon, market condl- Ions, will be. The government's decision to do iway with tlio- wheat bpard which laudled the 1813 wheat crop on tho )asis of a fixed initial price, plus what he market would bring, has been .aken in the face, of considerable oh lection. Curiously enough much of this has como from wheat growers who strongly opposed control last au- tumn.-The explanation ot this pecu- !ur situation doubtless lies in the 'act that wheat con fro] worked out much more successfully and realized !or the farmers more for the grain :han they thought it would with the result that this autumn they have in many cases expressed a preference for its' continuance. The.attitude of the government is that under existing conditions when the allied governments, are not pur- chasing Immense quantities jointly, it Is not 'advisable that control should be maintained.' It has been pointed out, however, that at the last session of parliament, power was taken to re- constitute the wheat board and take control of the handling of the 1920 crop should it be.deemed necessary to do so! An interesting feature of the situa tion in Britain is that .the bread sub- sidy paid "by the government has been removed, hut bread prices will not', be increased. It is pre- dicted that prices obtained for wheal in the -British market this year will be. approximately the same as were paid ,fpr; the 19.19. crop.
