Office Ground Floor Comer Office Dominion Blh WAR MIGHT STJMULAIE WESTERN WHEAT PRICES Closing of Dardanelles Would Block Russia, Rou-ifiania and Bulgarian Exports-Canada Would Have to Make Up the Deficiency London, Oct. 18.-iKiiulon ncwuim-per writers iiro dlsciis.slng >iiii'vj gen-erally now the cf?oct thiU tlio Hulknn war will have on the eross ciirrnnts of the worlil'b trade. All n.^ree that the Inllueuco will be widespread. Tho d.\port trndo of ccruals from tho nnm-eroHs important sources of supply on tho Black Sea is Just now a.t. lt\j height. 'Western markets are very larnely dTcndent upon th� grain which southern Russia and the I'anuho states should continue to ship for some weeks through the Dardanelles and througli tho -Meditoraneau to Atlantic channels and north seaporl.s. A development in recent years has placed a very considerable share of this trade in tho hands of tho Greek houses wliose vessels ,s;iil under their own flag, says a corrc.qwndent of the Hn.inclal t\e�s. Tijrkey has already, according to trustworthy reports, ventured upon the signifilcaut stop of refusing passage of tho Dardanelles to (3reek nierchantnien, aatl this prohibiticm is s.iid to involve the bottling up of about flO boats in the 13l8ck Sea. The result has been in an iramedlate material advance in freight rates from Black Sea ports. U has to bo borne in mind that both shores of the Sea of Marmora are Turkish territory and well fortiflod The commencement of war naturally not only involves the exclusion of Greek vessels from access to the Aegean Sea in order to deprive tho Greek army of a large number of contingent military trooi)s, but the exigencies of the situation also call for discrimination on the part of Turkey against water-borne exports from � Bulgaria which has placed itself at the head of he Balkan confederation It is still open to considerable doubt whether Roumauia will be able to maintain an attitude of neutrality when o.ther Balkan cousins are engaged in combat with the Turks. The more possibility of a further adver-, sary may provide the SultiUi's advisers with an exc�llent excuse for the refusal of the pass.tge of the Dardanelles to cargoes Xi;pm Iloumanlan bar-I bors on the Black Sea. Still another consideration in con-iW i nt'ctlon with the importance at t.he i present moment of Black Sea rx- Canada Might Benefit The powerful Spell-Hoyal Dutch com bine and tho Standnixl Oil group, as well as the Pearaon Intorosts in America, may be relied ui)on to safcgtiard tho oil fuel Industry, but as tho new Argentine wheat crop cannot become available until January, tho deficiency In food stuffs, cBpecluUy wheat, must be mado good, almost entirely by British overseas .growers, of whom tho Canadian farmers might bo the first to profit. Vessels not required In tho trade to and from the Black Sea, would, whenever suitable, 'be diverted to the northern Atlantic route, in order to hasten tho doiivory of the Canadian grown pratn at the European ports. A Btlll greater strain than usual will be thrown upon tlie railways Bnavo never bent their necks to the Turks. During tho centuries that followed the battle of Mossovo, in which tho combined might of Sor-via'and Bulgaria was smashed by the Turks, the scant handful of Servian nobles, who had fled to the huddle of black rocks above tho Adriiitlc, mnln-tains a precarioua ibut unbroUen inde-penricnce. Countless nrmios were sent against them, but they wfre never beflten or enslaved, and tliey roiiialn today the aanio proud, warriorlike people, a splentlld relic of a bygone age, wholly iiseless from a com. morclal point of view, but serving as a stirring reminder of things that were. Paper Army of the Turks Now, consider tho comparative weight of Turkey's possll)lc rosistnnee to this assemblage of men'of different nations. Indtvlduftlly, and �when he Is well led, the Turk Is one ot the best soldiers In the world.

Fi-nally, the diversion of tho western Imports from eastern sources to Canadian and American producers would affect the' balance of trade, and react very speedily upon the International money market, while large groups of concerns engaged in transportation would derive very tangible benefits from tho increased demand for goods in which the new world might have to redress the diminished balance of the old.

But it Is a mistake to suppose that Turkey will be aTjle to concentrate her whole military strength upon the do fence of Macedonia. She could not possibly do so, not only because of the ditflcuities ot transportation between tho different parts ot her unwieldly empire but because she would not ! daro to strip her' other frontiers and other outlying provinces ot their garrisons. She is forced to maintain a large .force in the Yemen luid her Arabian territory, and other districts of Asia Minor reQuire watching. Besides this, tho Turkish army Is do-cid�dly one of those which bulk largo on paper and shrink in actual service. It is doubtful It she can rally more than 400,000 men to the detonce of Constantinople, She will be very lucky if she gets as many as 500,000.
