sharply. Shippers did praetlcallr nothing,
en early rounda at least, and with shsrp
declines all around tha circuit even mod
erate auppliea could not aave the market
from packera' bearishnesa. For tha bulk of
the offeringa It waa a 16016c lower mar
kot. The. movement was draggy from the
outeat and trade got deader the farther It
- went. Light hoga and the plainer mixed
kinda were again tha hardest te sell and
several loads remained la first hands- up
to ft lata hour.
Tha general market waa. as noled. 110

CniCAGO r.RAIN AND PROVISIONS
Lowering f rricea Natad ift
Chicago, April 38. Restriction of wheat
trading to tha smallest volume In weeks
was accompanied today by ft decided low
erlng of prices, but there waa something of
a rally afterward owing to a. notable fall
Ing of the Cntted Statea vlalble supply total,
The markets eioeed uneettlcd at 83.33
I3.33U for May, and Il.t7i ta 11.1814 for
July, wttn the llnlsh aa ft wnota ranglm
from luc decline to IVie advance, aa com
pared with Saturday'a lateet flgurea Corn
cloeed the to lUc down, and oata off 4k
to Tto, In provisions tha outcome varied
from me losa to a rise of 17c.
Scarclty-or buying orders waa especially
evident at tha outset In the wheat pit. One
reason assigned waa that urgent domestic
household demsnd for flour waa aald
have flattened out and that European ca!
for wheat waa likely to be dlreeled in the
main ta the Canadian Block, owing to the
fact tnat grain carriers already had begu:
to move on the great lakes. Reports of
Improved crop proepecls In thveouthweet
tended further to handicap the bull aide
at the market, and ao too did current sett,
mates of a probable 10 par cent Increase
of seeded acreage In Canada this sraaoa
as compared with 1818. Besldea, heav
margalds asked from speculative operators
continued to act aa a curb to unduly lm.
pulslve rushes to purchase on seemingly' til.
Admission that tha wheat market had
become temporarily aomea-hat oversold was
general In the last half of tha day, when
the extent of tha deecreaae In the visible
supply waa ftpparent, Ths shrinkage
amounted to nearly 4,000 buahela and
brought the total down 1o more than ll.ooo,
000 bushele under the total at the oorra-
eronoing lime last year, '
' Corn, like wheat, sagged from tack
aggressive demand. A reoovery In part took
place ialor influenced aa in the case
wheat by falling off In the visible supply
.igures. Oata had. :PO dndapendent action.
Trade wbb light.
Heavlnraa of tha hog and grain market
weakened provisions, but an active buying
movement aa te lara lea atterwaro to
moderate genera) upturn. Offerings dried up.

Do you think our Government
should confiscate the property of
its citizens without compensation?
yOU knOW that the annual revenue paid the government by the
liquor industry exceeds the total annual interest on the new
SEVEN BILLION DOLLAR WAR LOAN?
- that there are now stored in Government Bonded Ware
houses, over 211,000,000 gallons of whiskey and other spirits?
that disti)lers have given bonds to the Government for
over $232,000,000 for payment of taxes on these goods?
-that prohibition would confiscate not only the millions
a. a. .a. ' 1 1 .1 elle f 1
lawfully invested in distillery property, but also the millions of gal
lons stored in bonded warehouses, and would confiscate bonds to
the extent of $232,000,000 an amount greatly in excess of the
total capital and surplus of all the bonding companies in America
so that the Government would lose $232,000,000 taxes?
These conditions exist because the government in order to provide pure
jj and mature goods has decreed that whiskey may remain in bond 8 years
and, if bottled in bond, must remain in bond 4 years for bottling purposes.
The Constitution of the United States guarantees that private property shall
not be taken nor destroyed for the public good, without due compensation
to owners , .
TT Prohibition is alleged to be for the public good. Prohibition as now pro
Til posed is ruthless confiscation. From every standpoint of American justice,
should not the cost be borne by the Government state or national decreeing
it? Confiscation without compensation is un-American and contrary to the
Constitution of the United States.
TT The liquor industry has paid to date over six billion dollars in taxes to the
ll Federal Goernment, and is now paying nearly $1,000,000 per day.
(I We ask a just and equitable consideration of the economic,
moral and financial problems of proposed Prohibition.
Write for detailed iiiformation on any point.
