Hinnl places the wheat crop ul GOO- ,
30,000 bushels while another equally
iliablo KOCB lo the other extroino and
jttmatca it at 400,000,000 buurmls.
loiiBcirvativo judges allow 020,000,000
uahols as the probable harvest , and
liL'Do tigurca are nuariir to trulh than
ithcr of the others. The largest pro-
tous yield in 18SO was -IDO.OOO.OOO
i hioh was ninety milhonn uboto that
f last year ,
So far as the oorn crop is concerned
otimatoa vary as widely as the
rhuat harvest , is under discussion. The
riirm run of the past Ihreu weeks
aa worked wondora all over thu
ountry in conturbalancing the dis-
stroua cll'octa of a wet summer. The
'ublic inclines to the belief that the
mil yield will not exceed 1,200,000-
00 bushels while Iho Commercial
iu/Mm / places it at 1,000,000,000
uohula. Leading grain dealers pro-
iot that if frost holdu oil' for another
jrtnight a crop of 1,500,0000,000
uahols will be assured.
There is the same dilferonco ot
pinion as to the probable demand for
ur surplus crops in Kuropcan mar-
ots. Thu bears declare that
10 crops abroad are abundant
liilo the bulls announce that
rought in one euction and rain in
thcra have wrought huvoo with the
rain. The most reliable reports in-
iouto thai lliero will bo a foreign Jo-
mud at good prices for whr.tovor sur <
lus crops thu west can diiposo of.
'hosu ' who fear unusually low prices
lusl not torgut that the amount of
roadslulls which the country can
pare this year will not be much
irger than in 1880 , when the crop
as lif-hter. The crops of 1880 fol-
jwod Iwo years of heavy harvoM and
irge surplusci , Our home consump-
ion of wheat during the last two
oara appears to have boon about
20,000,000 bushels each. The pruaont
ear , with our iucreased population ,
. cannot fall much below 1)20,000,000 )
ushels. Kstimating our present
'heat harvest at 020,000,000 bushels ,
'o shall have only 200,000,000 bush-
Is for export which will easily be ab-
jrbod by thu foreign demand.
So there ii no reason on the part of
ur farmers to fear that superabundant
ropj will bo discounted by unusually
hr pdccj. Thu figures of last year
ill ecarcaly bo reached , but fifty con't
heat and liftoon cent corn are things
f the past in Nebraska. Local con-
imption is much greater than it used
1 bo. Thu demand for corn for food-
ig will ba larger than ever and the
estern markets which are opened to
ur states will call fur a constantly incasing -
-casing supply of our breadstuff * .
Each year is taking our product
more and more out of the hands
eastern speculators and making the
lew dependent upon markets troubl

a demand for all of Nebraska's ran

fliciont method of controlling
> is freii action , however , is by
otnpcllinghim to pay full tariff rates ,

ontract price until they see fit to ro

or their own interest and behalf ,
'hey have been known to retain it

omotimcs held in this way $50,000 or

nd that the aggregate rebates now in
heir possession amount to $2,000,000.
'ho shortage matter is less important ,
ut it illustrates forcibly the meanness
f the corporation. Continual losses
