Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - January 10, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE rirflULrr CAGE SEVEN KEEL, Fashion Craft Clothes Shop 18 5th St Lethbridge L S. May Release 90 Bushels More of Wheat Despite fteed at Home Washington, Jan. 10.-The food situntlon In Europe is regarded here an so critical that tfva food ndminlctration is planning to release an add tionai 90,000,000 bushels of, wheat despite the fact that the normal export surplus had been shipped by the mlddfc of December. The American people will be asked to save to make up the deficiency. The demand from the nlliea is so insistent that the food administration has decided to take a chance on a shortage In the spring to meet in part their needs. If consumption is not reduced, officials see a possible shortage of flour In the United States in May before the new wheat crop comes In June. Halifax, Jan. 10.-Among the off cers w'th the 763 returned soldiers on bonrd ihe sh!p in port today are Lieut. E. H, McCutoh-eonf Kenorvi, Ont., and Lieut. R. G. Swift, of Lethbridge, Alta. V (CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGK) contracted to dejlvcr them at a certain price and must live up to their contract. .... To show that the elevators stood to lose i\ cons'dcrablrt .sum this year, Mr. Fowler submitted an estimate on a �crop of 20n,000,000 bushels. Ot thin crop, he estimated that the thirty-three hundred Canadian elevators would handle about i� ^..OOii.OOd bushels or about .Vvirm bushel* per elevator. This would niean that 'each house would have a iota.1 earning of $ti,''.^0. f The average expenses ot each Cana- i diaii elevator, he insisted, would this ynar amount to $2,S;:2 each exclusive of what had to b- paid for grain and fire insurant'". It was difficult to see how this was to bo paid out of the earnings. The increase, in freight rates would involve a further loss to ( each elevator of about $100. Mr. Fowler closed by asking that even" if the rates on other commodities wore put Into force on February 1st, that on grain be not enforced at any rate until the first of June. Commissioner Scott wanted to know if it would not he possible for the board of grain supervisors to increase the rate on wheat a cent. Mr. Fowler states that, even if this were done, it would not affect the price of the grain already in the elevators. Cannot Increase Price Dr. Magi.l drew attention to the fact that there could he no increase in the price of wheat. The reason was t.h U the allwul governments and ihe UnUed St 'lea "X'ould not allow an increase. The price of 2 Ml a bushel bad Ik* on t"i::?:l between the allies. Mr. Lanigan's Argument Mr. \V. B. Lanis.m, ropreaonUng the C. p. It., replied to Mr. Kowler. lie said th.it the rai'ways had given notice of the fact that they were going to apply for an increase in rates as long ago as last April, and the grain supervisors could have arranged for a price which would have provided for the increase. The increased rate represented an advance of a little over a cent, a bushel. The railways, he said, were suffering because ot" the fixed price of wheat as well as the grain dealers. They had to pay for wheat damaged in transit at that , figure. They had also to insure wheat'. on the basis ot I a bushel. All their 1 expenses have increased enormously. Mr. Lanigan figured that, at present,' along the Hues of the great, western roads, there were some twenty million bushels of wheat stored. Ho thought, that, Riven good weather, the railways ; should he able to move a large portion of this before the new rates went into force. He admitted that many of the elevators were probably operating a I a loss. j F. II. Phippen said that it was unfair of the grain men to complain of the , increase. They should he willing to j take the same risks as other men..lie i charged that grain dealers had gone on buying grain at the existing rates ! after the judgment of the board hud been made public. Sir Henry Drayton statod that, he would reserve judgment on the protest j of the grain exchange and dealers, and consideration was next given to the protest of the western lumber in-teres ts. O. C. Bacon, representing the wholesale lumbermen's committee, of Winn!-1 peg, said that his organization had at present about 3,500 ca.rs of lumber ready for shipment. The only reason that this lumber Lad not been shipped long ago was that they were unable to get cars from the railways. As the increase in rates could not bo charged to customers, the lumbermen's committee stood to lose a large amouat if the lumber was ..ot moved before the now schedule went into effect. The / ; increased rale would mean a loss, no! l\ only in not, but a.so in gross profii.s. ' Ji asked that the enforcement of the. new rates on lumber bo delayed uiu�I nfter the 1,5(10 cars were moved by the railway.-;. He complained against the railways generally. Mr. Danigan, representing the railways, maintained that there had been a plentiful supply of cars in the west, during the fall months. Judgment was finally reserved and the hearing ad- 4 V 1 J i F THE id Youn m At 35 per cent to 50 per cent less than manufacturers prices in force today \ �2? t HIS.IS NOT A HIGH SOUNDING STATEMENT BUT AN ACTUAL FACT.
