completed, and Mr. and Mrs. Klinim
are moving into the same this week.
The fact that we are able at this

state that they were married about
one year ago. but for reasons of

From Near Creighton.
R. W. Porter, who has been liv
ing up near Creighton. Nebraska,
for the past few years. was in
Plattsmouth and Murray, and other
Cass county points a few days the
past week visiting old time friends
and relatives. Ward came down to
Omaha with a hunch of cattle and
took advantage of the opportunity
to come on down to the old home
for a short stay. He was, a pleasant
caller at the Journal office and we
were pleased to see him and to
learn that he has been doing fine in
the northern part of the state. From
here went went to Perkins county,
where he went to look at some farm
land with the view of purchasing.

Now Ready For the West.
The real cstaie business in and
rear Murray has been rather active
for the past few weeks, and the
latest of the big deals is the selling
of the Lloyd Gapen farm just north
of Murrav. Mr. Gapen sells his
fine farm to Alfred Gansemer. and i
at the same time Mr. Gansemer
sells back the C. F. Harris fine farm
home to Jlr. Harris This gives
Mr. Gansemer a good farm nearer
Murrav. and will be much easier
for him to look after. With the
closing of this deal Mr. Gapen has
sold out all their holdings in old
Cass county, and are ready for their
departure for the west, and moving
time will come about the first of
March. Also bear in mind that
with the said first of March Cass
county loses another one of Its
long, tried and found ever true, and
most highly respected famiLies in
the departure of Mr. and Mrs.
Gapen. Such people are lost to a
community and are not always re
gained, and naught but the accumu
lation of ever lasting events can re
place the fond memories and asso
ciations of such families as Mr. and
Mr. Lloyd Gapen. While we re
gret to see them leave us. we join
with the many friends over the
county in wishing? them continued
happiness a"d success in their new
western home, as will sure come to
such people no matter where they
may cast their lot.
Washington. Feb. 3. Grain deal
ers appearing today before the
bouse agriculture committee proj-
posed that the government pay the
guaranteed price of $2.20 a bushel
for the 1919 wheat crop and sell it
to the consumer at the world mar
ket price, which they estimated
would be about $1.2". The witness
es generally believed this plan
would cost the government probably
$1,250,000,000. but said this loss
was preferable to any attempt on
the part of the government to main
tain an artificial price.
Representative Lever of South
Carolina. sugpested three other
plans: That the wheat movement
be entirely on the pre-war basis;
that the movement possibly be re
stricted by the government being
authorized to sell or to buy so as
to prevent manipulation, and that
the domestic movement be entirely
on the pre-war basis with the ex
port movement under federal con
trol. The cimmittee was holding hear
ings on the bill prepared by A. W.
Glasgow, counsel for the food ad
ministration in co-operation with
the Department of Agricultre. The
dealers strongly opposed continua
tion of the food administration's
grain corporation as provided in the
bill. They, however, urged contin
uation of the corporation for buv
inp and selling the crop.
Powers too Broad.
Chairman Lever, also anuounced
his disapproval of the measure as
drawn, declaring that it granted
broader powers than those of the
food control act. L. F. Gates of
the Chicago Board of Trade, declar
ed the proposal was "vicious."
while prain dealers testified that
Mr. Glasgow had disregarded their
suggestions nid drafted a bill un
necessarily broad and conferring
too much power on one officia'.
Chairman Lever announced that
none of the committeemen "serious
ly considered the building of eleva
tors or warehouses for storing
prain." and that this section of the
bill could be eliminated from discussion.
A. E. Reynolds of Cra w fordsville.
Ind.. chairman of the legislative
committee of the grain dealers' Na
tional association, said a crop of
1.230.000.000 busheJs was in pros
pect and he with other dealers
thought the world price would be
about $1.25 a bushel.
F. C. Van Dusen of Minneapolis
saidthe present is too early to make
specific plans under which the grain
corporation should operate, but he
added "the president should be giv
en broad authority in handling the
Will Minimize Loss
Control of imports and exports
and the closing of exchanpes to fu
ture trading will minimize the gov
ernment's lass in maintaining the
price. Mr. Van Dusen. declared, add
ing hat licensing of the exchanges
would be unwise. Mr. Van Dusen
said he favored leaving the ques
tion of price with the corporation,
suggesting that through control of
world credits the government might
sell the wheat advantageously de
spite a lower world price.
G. S. Carkener of Kansas City
declared that a loss will have to be
borne and that if wheat was held
by the government it would "he
come a constant menace."
"We cannot return to normal."
he said, "with an abnormal buying
price, but we may be able to return
to normal about the end of the
1919 crop year June or July.
Nisbct Grammar of Buffalo said
the government should confine it
self to wheat and wheat products.

by prLvate dealers. He urged that

like it did Joe Leiter's; so there
is a loss."
B. Stockman of Duluth, Minn.,
said the agency should keep the
price as near $2.20 as possible and
he opposed a return of the trade to
pre-war conditions "under present
Mr. Gates told the committee
that the Chicago Board of Trade de
sired to let the law of supply and
demand determine condition", and
he added that the violation of tiiH
economic law would mean that the
government must stand a linancial
loss now or later.
Government buying. Mr. Gates
said, should cease "as soon as pos
sible." and no restrictions should
be placed on imports if wheat move
ment is returned to pre-war con
ditions. The shipping situation, lie
declared, is such that Argentine
and Australian wheat will compete
