Mar. 14.-The government Vas under consideration the fixing of .� minimum price for the coming: season's wheat crop. Last year toe price fixed wag $2.21 a bushel and the rate this season will be fully as large. The policy of definitely determining the price in advance will, it is believed, serve as a stimulus to production iu that the grain, growers will know what to expect before beginning: operations. It is doubtful if the suggestion of the Alberta legislature to also fix the price for the 1919 crop is carried out so that would embrace considerable speculation as to conditions meanwhile. * AMERICANS PRISONERS Washington, .Mar. 14.-State department advices today transmit reports from Stockholm that some Americans who left on the Finlander. a neutral ship, after the German occupation of Finland, were taken prisoners.
