Europe's Shortage and America's Sur

I'robably S3 Per Bushel Is Prom- jQ
Ised Later in the Season.
St. Pacl, Sept. 11. Theodore M.
Mueller, editor of The State,. the Alli
ance newspaper organ ct the northwest,
has issued a second circular following
upon the suggestions of the first, with
figures and arguments in support of the
proposition that wheat is bound to ad
vance to $1.50 or $2, and farmers should
profit by it. One million copies of this
circular are being mailed, besides the
60,000 copies of the current issue of The
State, in which the circular is reprinted.
The circular opens with the statement
that the farmers will be saved millions
of dollars if the advice given in the
document is followed. Alliance secre
taries are instructed to give the circular
as wide a distribution as possible,
while newspapers are requested to pub
lish the same. Continuing the circular
"We do not believe a majority of the
farmers are foolish enough to co-operate
with the speculators to depress' prices
further. There is no question but
prices will take a turn upward in a few
days. The shortage in Europe cau now
be figured with accuracy. About
week ago a congress of grain-dealers
irom all parts of Europe met at V lenna,
Austria, and computed figures about
the crops in Europe., These figures are
the highest - which well-informed re-
Dutable men could furnish, for. if in
famine year like this they should give
lor the crop of any one. country lower
figures than circumstances justified, the
government of that country would cer
tainly remonstrate. It is surely the pol
icy of Europeans not to exaggerate their
disaster. .The fignres of "the Vienna
congress show that Europe raised 258,
000.000 bushels of wheat and 490,000,000
bushels of rye less than last year. Last
year it consumed all of its ' own wheat
crop and at least 50,000,000 of reserves,
100,000,000 bushels . imported ; from
America, all that other countries could

Higher Prices for Wheat. "'-
Rye being dearer in : Europe than
wheat, the latter becomes a substitute.
and is equally affected by deficiency in
rye or wheat supply. When it is en
tirely certain that Luropeans will have
to economize in bread to the extent of
678,000,000 bushels, and when the sit
uation is aggravated by the partial fail
ure of the potato crop, it is to be con
sidered what prices they would pay for
American wheat. The shortage in
Europe being four times as large as the
American 'surplus, there is no doubt
that the price of wheat will reach the
highest figure ever known before this
year is up and will exceed it by far be
fore the new crop conies in.
The talk that for si wheat m Chicago
is a high price under present circum
stances is absolutely idiotic, for the
average price in England being $1.41,
no one in Europe dares expect to eat
wheat 21 cents below an average price
this year. Wheat will soon be over
$1.50, no matter how much farmers and
speculators work together to keep prices
down, and we would advise those who
can comprehend the situation to hold
their wheat for $1.50 and add for every
month they keep it say 5 cents to the
price. Hold your wheat. You cannot

however, rose to tne occasion, and

somewhat, but President Dwyer's aim
is to break tip the pool rooms and this
last step will probably prove effective.
All of the pool rooms in this city were

by means of the tower to get the re

her husband dwelt in order to find for

message which took a load off her heart.
It was dated at Halifax and announced
that her huSband was alive and well

steam could carry him. It also stated
that on the day of the disaster he started
for Peterson's restaurant, but fell by the

He was soon in a condition in which he

spot where the ties were placed on the

aid in nutting the timbers across the
