Ing Lindi France and Italy mail depend this country for their bread recent report from Bombay Stow that the wheat crop in India in almost a failure. London july 17.�?monday s weekly report from Bombay by Cable settles the fact that the Indian wheat crop will be no Factor at All in the question the worlds food Supply this year. And there is a sudden and anxious Effort now being made to get at the facts upon which to base an estimate hat Tho worlds crop will really be like. A number the Best informed English specialists have been seen and they believe that the situation a few months hence will be fully As bad As it was last year. One two say they expect it to to worse. Of course the state european crops is still susceptible to certain fluctuations and can not be accurately mapped out until the annual seed fair at Vienna which owing to the general anxiety this year has been advanced to August 24. But while climatic contingencies May injure Good crops they will be Able to do Little to improve these already doomed and the condition in october is More Likely to be worse than Bot Ter. The demand Lor wheat in the big purchasing countries Europe bids fair to be smaller than usual England and France Promise harvests considerably better than last year. As the Fields and stocks now stand the yield these two countries is expected to be 4l,t 06,0u6 Bush is in excess that last year. Spain will also be above the average and Italy Only a trifle under. Germany East the tenth parallel h almost As Good perhaps the present weather will make her quite As Good As last year. But there Tho favourable picture abruptly stops. Two great exporting countries Russia and Austro Hungary will this year find it difficult to feed themselves. Russia which had big harvests the last two years and a forc cd the Market to get rid All its Grain in order to float Loans the last which was concluded the other Day now confronts a rather serious situation. Her big granaries like those Odessa have never before been so empty wheat and the present crop in Many Large districts is a Complete failure. The Long drouth and then the Cycle no storms which destroyed the wheat and oat Prospect in Russia have done the Samo for we heat Tye and Barley in Austro ii Ungary a mania and Eastern Germany. In Short though drops West the tenth parallel Aryl quite definitely better than in 1888, this is More than balanced by the failure in the far More important Grain Fields East that line. England France and Italy must always buy so much Grain that the question exactly How much they need is not specially important but the failure big exporting countries is serious considering the col lapse India and the very deficient crops Australia. It is now estimated Here by experts that the Eastern hemisphere As a whole is worse off than it w As a year ago at this time. There is therefore almost tearful int Frost in what the american crop will be like. The shortage Over Here will be so great that the Market will be More at the mercy the United states than Ever before and the next report from the Washington Bureau is eagerly Wrath Ted m an indication How severe a squeeze May be expected. During the last few Days russian wheat has been going up Here and a Panid is Only prevented by the fact that every body in America seems so confident heavy failure. John e.
