FOR NEW PRICE
Guarantee Producers Mini
mum Return for, Grain
Based On $2.26 a Bushel
The. United States Grain corpora
tion, through its officers, has en
tered into contracts with practically
all terminal and country elevator
owners and managers, dealers and
brokers in grain, as to what mini
mum prices shall be paid for wheat
marketed within the limits of the
The prices to be guaranteed are
for the 1919 crop and are based on
a price of $2.26 a bushel at Chicago.
The difference between the Omaha
and Chicago price is the freight, or
carrying charge. The maximum,
$2.26 is for No. 1 hard, the highest
grade on the market. Other grades
arc scaled, the poorer grades rang
ing around $2.10 to $2.15. The
Omaha-Chicagd carrying charge is
4 cents a bushel.
The contracts provide that dealers
shall not store wheat, or wheat
products, for a longer period than
30 days without special permission
from the grain corporation.
Contracts were sen to the ele
vator men, grain dealers and brok
ers some days ago and are now
coming in in large numbers. The
result of such contracts having been
executed is said to assure the pro
ducers that there will be no fluct
uation of the market for the 1919
crop, but that instead,' now,' or any
time within the next few months,
prices will remain the same.
In the contracts there is nothing
to prevent millers, or others, who
want wheat from bidding above the
guaranteed price. Already on the
Omaha market considerable wheat
has been sold above the guarantee,
but in each instance the grain was
wanted by brokers who had hurry
orders to fill with millers, or by
millers themselves-, who needed the
wheat for grinding.

The Bee Want Ads Are" the Best
For School Tax Levy
A tentative estimate for the new
school district tax levy provides for
45 miljs, as against a levy of 35
mills for the fiscal year ending June
30, 1919. This school district is
now limited to a maximum tax levy
of 50 mills.
The total tax collections and mis
cellaneous receipts for the last
school fiscal year amounted to
$1,982,000, and the expenditures
were approximately $2,020,000.
Superintendent J. H. Beveridge and
members of the Board of Education
believe that provision should be
made in the new school budget for
"working capital" to provide for
times when tax collections do not
meet the expenditures.
The proposed 45-mill levy, plus
estimated miscellaneous receipts of
more than $200,000, would yield
nearly $2,700,000. Recent increase
of teachers' salaries will absorb
some of the increased levy.
The school board is discussing
the matter informally and expects
to arrive at a conclusion this week.
City Clerks-Start to Issue
New Licenses On Tobacco
City Clerk W. H. Hunter yesterday
started to issue licenses to retail and

legislature. Retailers are charged

per year. It is estimated that the
annual receipts from this source will
be nearly $35,000, which will be
credited to the school district treasury.
