CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS.
Wheat Decline Sharply Opening Owing
to New of Activity By Submarines.
Chloaao. Feb. I. Wheat averagd lower
today largely because of unfounded rumors
that Germany naa aeciarea war on mo
United States. The market ctosea unset

Corn gained o to o net, oats finished

HAnt friim the atart. Interest at first cen
tared on the possible consequences or tne
reported killing of an American see man
by German submarine gun fire. Notwith
standing that rumors of a war declara
tion by Oermany had begun to circulate
even before th opening of business they
were not taken seriously by many dealer
until much later In the session. However,
the outlook that war had been brought
nearer than ever for the United States by
the new submarine attacks, led to sharp
declines. As a rule, shorts had covered
thMir trades during yesterday's advance.
and It seemed temporarily as If the market
was wholly without support. Kxirrmeiy un.
fi.i..i-hl. eixio renorls from Kansas, Ne
braska. Oklahoma and Missouri, led after-
warda though to a material but transient
pMritenca of the rumors of a formal
notice from Berlin of direct hostilities
agAlnst the United States turned the wheat
market decisively downgrade In th laat
half of the session. Denials that there was
In sight any confirmation for th rumors
prevented any radical setback In values,
but failed to check the spread of bearish
sentiment. Extension of rallwey embargoes
sast of Chicago acted also as a handicap
on the bull.
Assertions that as a war measure large
contract for alcohol had been let by the
United Btate government put strength Into
the corn market. It was awumed that the

Telephone Rates Down
Although the buyer of meat, sugar, flour, po
tatoes, or butter still receives but sixteen
ounces in a pound, although paying more money
than before, the telephone user has been steadily
getting more and better service and paying the
same or less money than in the past.
The people of this country pay a great deal
more today for food, fuel and clothing than
they did a few years ago.
In the telephone business we are paying, os
an average, double the price for materials and
supplies, we did three years ago.
Efficiency of the Service Increased
Constantly the efficiency and value of tele
phone service to the subscriber has been in
creased. Today you can talk to an average of
nearly twice as many persons in each exchange
as you could live years ago.
In spite of increased labor and equipment
costs the last few years, there has been no gen
eral increase in telephone rates. Careful man
agement, improved methods of operating, and
a limited amount of new construction, have
enabled us to keep expenses from "going out
However, as the present equipment wears
out, if we have to replace it with material that
has more than doubled in cost, a general in
crease in telephone rates would seem inevitable.
