Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 10, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, .TANUARY 10^ 1918 THE LETHBRIDGE D,-�^T T^.-.RALw F'AGE SEVEN ||J. S. May Release 90 Bushels More of Wheat Despite Seed at Home Washington, Jan. 10.-The food �Ituntlon In Europe it regarded here �� to critical that th� food admlnietratlon is planning to release an add'tional 90,000,000 bushels of, vvheat despite the fact that the normal export surplus had been shipped by the middle 'of December. The American poopts *vlll be asked to save to make up the deficiency. The demand from the allies Is so Insistent that the food administration ha� decided to take a chance on a shortage in the spring to meet In part their Heeds. 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. LI SINIFI, LOCAL Halifax. Jan. 10.-Among the offcera w'.th the 763 returned soldiers on board the ship in port today are Liout. E. H. McCutch-eon, Kenora, Ont., and Lieut. R. 0. Swift, of Lethbridge, Alta. LOiiS KEEL, Fashion Craft Clothes Shop, 318 5th St S. Lethbridge T CLEARANCE SALE S of Men^s and Young Men's WINTER WEAR At 35 per cent to 50 per cent less than manufacturers prices in force today GRl W PRESENT IHEIR PROTEST (CONTINUED FROM FRONT PACK) ' contracted to Oejlyor .thom at a certain price and must live up to their; contract.     . i To show that the elevators stood to � lose a con.HldcraUld sunr this year, Mr. Fovvior Bubn-.ttted an estimate on a �crop of 200,000,000 bushels.' Ot this crop, ho estimated that the thirty-three hundred Canadian elevators would handle about ir,:".,O00,O()O bushels or about Fi5>450 bushels per elevator. � This would iilcan that 'each house would have a total earning ot $2,320. The average expenses of each Canadian elevator, ho insisted, would this year amount to ?2,832 each exclusive of what had tq ho paid for grain and fire insurance, irwas difficult to/soc how this was to bo paid out ot 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 al any rate until the first of June. \ Commissioner Scott wanted to know" If It would not bo possible tor the board of grain supervisors to increase the rate on wheat a cent. i 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. Mttg^ll drew attention to the fact that there cotiUl he no increase In the price ot wheat; The reason v.-as th.it the allied goveniments and. the United Stf.tea '^ould not allow an increase. The price ot ?2.21 a bushel had been tl^ed between the allies. i IVIr. Lanioan'a Arflument j Mr. W. B. Lanlgan, rcproaeutlng the C. P. R, replied to Mr. Fowler. He ' said that the raflways hnd given no-; tico ot the fact that they were going to apply tor an Increase In rates as long ago as last April, and the grain supervisors could have arranged tor a price which would have provided for > the increase. The increased rate re-; presented an advance ot a little over � u cent a bushel. The railways, ho , said,; were suffering becahse ot the i fixed' price, ot wheat as well as the graiti; dealers. They "had to pay tor i wheat damaged in transit at that, flgurip. They, had also to insure wheat on the basls^of $2;21 a bnshei. All their expertsoa \\hvo Increased onorraousjy., Mr,, Lnnigan figured that at present, i along the Hues of the great western'", roads, tliero wore some iwouty million I bushels of wheat storetT. Ho thought 1 tliat,glven good weather, the railways ; should bo able to move a large portion : ot this before the new rates went into i torpe. He admitted that many of the! elevators wore, probably operating iit' a loss. V. H. Phlppen said that it was unfair of the grain men to complain of the ' increase'. They should be willing to' talte the same vlsks as otlier men..Ho charged that grain dealers had gone on buying grain at the existing rates after'the judgment ot the board had been made public. . Sir,- Henry Drayton stated" that ho would reserve Judgmopt on the protest of t|io grain exchange and dealers; (intl consideration was next given to the protest of the western lumber in-terefl.ts. G. C. Bacoh,|ropresontlnK the wholesale Jumbernjea,'a tfoniraltteo, ot Winnl-I peg, said that his organlaatlon had at I presoiht about 1,500 cars of llimbor ready for shipment. The pnly reason that this lumber hat} not been shipped long Idgo was that they we^e unable to get (jars from the railways. As tlie incre&so In rates could not', be charg-I ed ttf custoraors, the lumbermen's J committee stood to lose a large amount I if the luhjber was ..ot naoved before ^ the n^w schedule want Into effect.
