ROME INTERESTING FACTS. , April ,4. , As India Is a growing rival of the Ualtod States In the supply of wheat for the British market , American shippers will bo In terested In the report on Indian wheat productions by H. Mataon , consul general at Calcutta , In the February Issue of consular reports , which Is just out. Matson's conclusions are as fol lows : That India can produce an average - orago quality of wheat at as low cost to producer as the most favora bio locality In the United States ; that eho can now cnpply the Enopeau market with about 40,000,000 bushels annually , nnd possesses facilities for Increasing the supply to an almost un limited extent , ovring to the great elas ticity of homo consumption nnd to the vast amount of land awaiting cultiva tion ; that in quality , cheapness , trans portation futilities for baudllrg , safety against damage during transit , nnd the stability of money exchange , American wheat , nnd especially that from the new northwest , haa such advan tages that there need bo no serious apprehension nn account of Indian competition at legitimate prices , but that In order to maintain this advantage it is absolutely neces sary that America should keep pice with India In her efforts to reduce nnd maintain freights at the lowest possible minimum. On the other hand it Is an Indisputable fact that Indian wheat .has . already become and viU continue to bo n very lnv otJat factor In the grain markets of Europe , and a check against high prices brought about either by speculation or any ; other unnecessary or artificial means ; finally , that on this basis of fair average crop throughout the world the American farmer will have to prepare himself to reduce the coat of production to the lowest minimum and bo content with small profits or else wheat growing In India will bo stimulated to such an extent that sub sequent competition may become ox- tro'raoly formidable.
