CLAIM WHEAT BARONS IN CHI.
ARE BOOSTING PRICE
At the department of justice in
Washington, Chicago- grain men are
accused of boosting the grain prices
by speculation. War has little to do
with' the rise, it is claimed.
Over 891,000,000 bushels of wheat
were raised here this year. United
States requires about 600,000,000
bushels, the authorities say. Only
178,000,000 bushels of the grain has
been exported is their claim, and
there is no cause for soaring wheat

cago board of trade, denied this.
"The war in Europe is the only
cause for boosted wheat prices and

have half of the people of the globe
depending upon the other half for
food. The high prices are caused by
the fear that the world will run short
of wheat before the next harvest."
