Both Producers and Consumers Pay
For Speculative Market “Rigging”
From the Santa Barbara (Cal.) News.
In the course of a remarkably clear and readable article in
the Dearborn Independent, United States Senator Shipstead of
Minnesota shows that for three years in the last four there have
been well managed and "skillfully manipulated wheat campaigns
which have cost the people and the farmer untold millions but
which have fattened the big speculators’ pocketbooks.
From the high point reached by wheat in these campaigns, the
price in from 60 to 90 days has dropped an average of 70 cents a
bushel when the big manipulators have taken their profits.
These campaigns were all begun when the bulk of#the wheat
had left the farm. It is estimated that less than 15 per cent, of
the 1924 crop was held by the farmer when the recent bull wheat
Senator Shipstead points out that during the week ending
March 14 of this year the wheat futures sold amounted to 527,
000,000 bushels or double the amount of the world’s available sup
ply at that time.
In answer to the argument that the farmer and the people (to
not suffer because of this wild speculation which is made possible
only by the deliberate rigging of the market and merciless manipu
lation, Senator Shipstead declares that the wide fluctuations it
causes add a distinctive speculative element to the milling busi
ness which is reflected in increased prices to the consumer and re
duces actual consumption. Both consumer and farmer suffer.
The artificial stimulation of the price leads the farmer to o\er
plant. It is estimated by experts that the direct result of the bull
campaign was to cause an increase in spring wheat this >eai o
44 per cent.
If the influence of the bull campaign stopped there it might
be defended on the ground that it has brought increased produc
tion. But over-production hurts the market and makes for re
duced acreage next year.
The chief point made by Senator Shipstead is that the farmer
and the consumer alike pay the penalty for the gamblers’ opera
tions and the millions taken in profits by the speculators are an
additional charge loaded on the unfortunate producer. The specu
lator in the nation’s bread is a parasite who sucks the life blood
of the men who toil.

The sudden death of William Jen

The millions that disagreed with his

William Jennings Bryan held the

death. He never compromised with
what he believed to be the truth. He
set before the nation an example of
sincerity needed in our public life.

The United States imported 2,233.276

Influence was weak.
The wise Frenchmen took from the
boulevards the greatest of modern
magicians and sent him to Algiers to
show the natives some real magic.
The French magician had a light
trunk of iron, connected with an elec
tric current, that held it to the floor
when the current was turned on, the
trunk becoming very light when it
wras turned off.
All the magicians together tugged
at the trunk, but couldn’t lift it as
long as the French man of magic had
held up his finger. The magicians re
tired, the Frenchman turned off the
curent, lowered his finger, and a
little boy lifted up the trunk easily.
When the African magicians ]
wanted to try it again the Frenchman
turned a strong electric current into
the metal handles of the trunk, and
all the magicians, squirming and bel
lowing, found that they were unable
to let go.
That settled it. The people of Al
giers decided that French magicians
were better than their own, and that
reconciled them to French rule.
French fliers, tanks and armored
cars, plus French efficiency, will
probably persuade the followers of
Abd-el-Krim that their leader is not
