It Is learned thnt the purpose of

production of Kuropo amounts to 1,-
700,000 tons, That s not so very much
when you stop to consider that pre
vious to this last year of short crop.
It has been customary to carry over n
surplus of something like two million
tons. This year the amount cnrrled
over will be 800,000 tons or less. Tim
consumption should Increase at least
seven per cent this year by reason
of low prices. Tho nvernge incrense

Tho speculators, arguing with about
