PAGE ELEVEN People's Forum MIXING OF WHEAT To the Editor of the Herald; Dear see fay the papers the government has been asked to allow the mixing of wheat. 1 expect the Grain Growers' Guide and the U. F. A. will he up in arms and will try and block it without goiatc into the sub- ject, as 1 myself have done. The nyir- ket the GuJtle has been asking for, is the U. S. market; they always quote Minneapolis. What do you find if you go to that market and go into the exchange as I did last winter withj two cars oi low grade wheat? You find they have the privilege of mixing and also a sample market. The mix- ing enables a man who lias low grade wheat to sell it as milling wheat, the1 sample market gives him from four to eight cents more for his wheat. I saw my wheat sold by my agent, who claimed although it was graded No. it was nearly good enough for four, the consequence was he got 5 cents more than No. 5 price -that day. My contention is, we ought to have u sample market in Winnipeg. 'A law to that effect was passed by the Do- minion government two years ago, and was blocked, I believe by the Grain Growers' Grain company, or the Grain Commission. Anyway it never went Into effect, and the Guide has talked about everything under the sun since but a sample market. I also contend mixing should be allowed. I had a long talk with the agent who sold my wheat, who explained to me the advantage of being allowed to mix. He told me plainly that if the buyers were not allowed to mix, there would be no good market for low grade wheat. Tasked the buyer what he intended doing with that wheat. His answer was, ".Make by itself. No, mix it with 3. 4 and U Minneapolis is by itself, always better than Chicago or Minneapolis market today for Decem-' her wheat is S cents better than Chi-; cago, and 4 cents better than Winni- j peg. Take all the Canadian wheat' an-fi It to Minneapolis, what would happen, an over-supply, all wheat going to Minneapolis or nearly all to be ground In their big mills. Give them an over-supply and their price would be based on Chicago or Duluth, as the Winnipeg price is based on Fort William. Yours tr.uly, A. H. Lynch Staiinton, Pincher Creek. Has Been Almost Impossible to Operate Contest in Cranbrook (From Our Own Cranbrook, Nov. lili.--Tim shortage, of labor during On- jwst sovoral months has held up the lumber lnini- niJSH to such 'an ex ten! that it has been practically for flic mills to operate. Tins wftuation has been greatly relieved by the return of a largo number of in mi from the prairies, although men aro stil! in de- mand. A shortage prevails for men in tho wood business, it boiiis impos- sible .to get lielp. Covdwood is sell- ing at per ronl. and it Is the belief of men engaged in that busi- ness that firewood will bring dur- ing tho coming whiter. Speculation on tthf> part of local politicians an to juf't what position in the new government Or. King will occupy Is daily being discussed. Some- one must have surely bit tho mark, as he is credited with every thing from minister of mines to minister without portfolio. Mayoralty Contest The forthcoming municipal el ca- tions promise many surprises if street rumors can be accepted as any criter- ion. In all probability three candi- dates will be in Held for the mayoralty. Mayor Clapp has staled lie will not again be a candidate, al- though lijs many friends and support- ers will prevail upon him to -again stand for election. S. Santo, who has served the city us alderman dur-! ing the past term, anil who IK a mem- ber of the police commission, will in all probability be a candidate for the office of mayor. The name of W. A. Nlsbet has also beou mentioned, al-; though Mr. Nisbet ban in nn way in- timated that lie will be a candidate. In the alderraariic race nothing has thus far come to the surface, although it Is believed considerable new .blood will be uppermost in the next week or ten days. Taken all in all Cranbrook will have a number contestants when the proper time comes. WHAT THE HASTENING HUNK LEI-T JJK1I1XI) THEM.

Cunningham Re- veals New Phase of the Situation domestic tragedy of Lance-Corp. Richard Cunningham has centred official scrutiny on a new phase of tlie slacker's character. Cun- ningham is charged with strangling his wife, whom he hud Accused of In- fidelity while ho was on the western front. The accused soldier wrote to the London Chief Constable, beseeching the officer to save his home and voiced a soldier's hatred of the type of slacker who had betrayed him. "I write you from the trenches of said the letter, "to ask why this type of man is not doing his bit. Several times lately 1 have received reports of a man visiting my home, and sometimes stopping all night, while J am here at the front in answer to my country's call. "It is shameful such men should be left at homo while we are out hen1. month after mouth, in rain and mud, taking our Minis under fire that Eng: land may be safe. .-vVuy hasn't'this man bein called for service?

THE COST OF MILK To the Editor of the Herald: Dear the statement by Mr. Carlyle of the Crystal Dairy regarding the price of milk, etc. He makes the statement that milk coats him fi cents per quart, yet he does not hesitate in" conjunction with two oth- er dairies to charge per quart retail, or in other words he finds absolutely necessary to obtain a pro- fit of over 100 per cent, to maintain his business. .It would be interesting to know exactly how much per quart or gallon hia milk cost now to pas- teurize and bottle and deliver over and above what it cost him, say last Au- gust or September. Isn't it correct that the Crystal Dairy was one of the first to increase the price of butter, although they had not increased the price of cream to the farmer v who produced it. As there are other dairy- men in the city who liavo not Increas- ed their prices and who, I believe, do not contemplate an increase in price, it is hard to reconcile the opinion that the recent increase in price is an absolute necessity. It appears to me a case of all the traffic ;bear. There is another aspect in regard to the present high cost of living, game- ly the Patriotic and the bulk of which has been provided for by the working classes ,wfto. will have to economize severely this win- ter, and I believe these two funds will suffer in proportion. Will the' people who expect 100 per cent, profit on their goods supply the .deficiency? I think not. If the municipality has got tho necessary authority to do so T would srggest that a move be made against'the lliree dairies, and if hthei facts warrant it, to prosecute to the full extent.of the law.
