desire is that the price ot wheat should But the fhraHon of the price of the erop for at the present price ot per bushel at interior storage points has produced a rather peculiar and tbe eastern press and the eastern people are very anxious to kaow whet the government is going to doaboist Naturally the feeling in the west the price of wheat ia different Wheat is our staple It is also our alatn export in normal Anything which tends to affect the of sending it either up warijtjor downwards causes either or depression In the west eo far as the west is con eeraeaV K wonM be to our selfish in tereetfte kave the wheat high aajpeeetMefor as The being interested in manufacturing to a greater is more vitally interested in the cost of fofthe coat of living to a great extent determines tbe price ot and price of labor fixes in a measure the of the manufac while cost of pro fiusing the manufactured article all important when meeting the competi tion of other countries when similar articles areput on the market If Canada were not interested securing foreign if we lived within it would make very little difference what the price of Wheat It could be and we could maintain high wages to meet the cost ot which is largely fixed on the basis ot the wheat fad we wouldnt need to care so very much what the price ot this food pro duct was In other But Can ada neede foreign trade to help pay the war And Canada has wheat for Therefore Canada is in terested In the world price for wheat as well as in the domestic Among those who have written to the eastern press on thisallimport ant matter ere Senator Nleholls and Banford Both express pretty puch the same Senator NIcholA saye For the United States Gov ernment has purchased in advance the Whole of their 1919wheat crop at a I of per j The Canadian on the other have only purchased tbe i available Canadian supply of wheat up to which means unlike tbe fanners m the United i the Canadlta farmer has not j fold his 1319 crop In advance at a Jilrh as by August next the new crop will not have been harveet Under such conditions what will ie the return to the Canadian wheat frower on his next years crop Will the Government have to purchase the entire crop in order to get in line with the United States policy or will the Canadian farmer hare to take his qhance of competing with the wheat of the or will there be an ef fort allied nations to stabilize by year wheat prices the world ever This only affects the but all classes of the It affects the which has purchas ed huge supplies at war prices that have tobe distributed at a tha loss to be absorbed by the unless secure a covering Indem nity from It affects the wageearner and places him between two On the one it will necessitate hie earning a high enough ftaie to offset the high prices of SUB on the other if the Is high enough to prevent the from producing his irares at a price that win meet tor flfl oajBpetltlorf be can no longer af IBM to give The HaraU has no quarrel with fifihoUs for balding tUlg opin But we would life to point out a of arguments which show how Western farmer is likely to look H fir attempt to beat down wheat IB the first had tbe price of wheat not been fixed during the the law of enpply and would have sent higher than Before the price fixed we saw it amount to In face of one ot the largest crops that Canada ever The western farmer there fore feels that any attempt to unduly depress the price during the next year would be unfair In view of the faet that the price during the while It has been high enough and he has no kick about has been held down by government Then there Is the other Senator Nleholls nays that the price of wheat governs the price ot He says In that to get wages back to scale it is necessary to start with But as the western farmer IB paying high wages just as well as anybody in Canada U looks as if he would be in tor a rather strenuous time were he to be forced to raise his wheat with highpriced labor and sell In on a low market In order to give theother fel low a chance to get wages The farmer the starting point in the He starts by raising hia wheat on the present inflated basis for ev erything he To ask him to sell it at a normal basis and bear the loss is asking him something he is not likely to grant What Is the inflated basis under which the farmer is now raising wheat Here are a few comparisons In 1915 the fanner paid a month for men and a day in Now he is paying a month for men and to a day in In 1915 bought twine for 9H cento a Today be is lucky to purchase it much under 25 In 1915 oats were

the farmer could feed his men for 50 cents a Today he is lucky to do It a Before the war the provincial gov ernment of Saskatchewan appointed a commission to enquire into the cost of producing wheat in that They cost ceats a bushel taking an average In that case the average crop produced by the Western farmertoday is near the But it must be re membered that the crops are not al ways up to the average every Plenty of farmers in Western Canada thief year raised wheat which cost them four or fire dollars a Sothat easterner when he talks of putting down the price of wheat just as ff it were as easy as writing down the figures doesnt know what he is talking The Herald believes that the ques tion will work itself We believe that bad the government ot the Unit ed States not set the price of next the price would still have been For there so much wheat in the world u some people The huge RussianTsupply is a Russia is starving because the peasants are not raising more than enough wheat now for their own while the great stocks piled up they expect to be home for or if not to be on the and dont write any more letters until they Only a few of the schools in the district have the majority

at lower but it must be remem bered that commercially wheat is not nearly so valuable Wf food as is the Canadian and hard wheat of the So that in the world with nothing to govern the price but the law of supply and wheat would be a high price 1 OF THEFLU From Our CoiTMOondent The epide mic hae subsides here with ordin ary should thing of the past in a few days there are only three or font all
