BILLIONS OV DOLLARS VANISH.
Furniers of Country Hour Grouter
l'urt of Deflation iiosses.
Now York, Nov. 29-Kalling micos
have lopped off moro than $20,000,
000,000 vnluo from tho high prices
of American farm products, munu
f ne tur ed commodities and stocks rul
ing earlier this year, according to
figures compiled hore Saturday night.
The greater part of this lobs-at least
two-thirds or more-has fallen upon
tho American farmer.
Twenty billions of dollars-or six
times tho cost of the Amerncan Civil
War-has vanished in thin air.
That much donation has been ac
complished since the American bank
ers have tightened up on credit. And
the deflation is still continuing in
some commodities, us the dally mar
ket page reports testify.
The biggest loss sustained by the
American farmer has been on his
corn crop. Tho Indicated corn crop
amounts to 3,200,000,000 bushels,
md tho price has fallen from $2 a
bushel this year to around 64 couts.
That moans a four-btlllon dollar
Tho American farmer's next big
gest loss on his 1920 crop has boon
on cotton. The indicated crop ls 12,
7S3.000 bales, and cotton has drop
ped in price $ 1 3f> a bale,which means
that tho Southern States will have to
stand a loss of $1.725,000,000 from
expected salo price.
The third biggest deflation in the
crops has been in wheat valwfi. The
indicated crop is 701,000,000 bush
els. Since July 15 wheat has dropped
from $2.71 a bushel to $1.52. Thus
tho loss has been around $803,000,
000. The price of bread In New York
was reduced one cent a loaf Satur
The Cuban sugar producers have
been compelled to fabe a loss of $1,
430,000,000. The sugar crop there
is estimated at 4,000.000 tons, and
the price of sugar has f?llen 16 cents
a pound this year, or $358 a ton.'Bhi
as yet there has been little deflation:
in the United States :n tho pricevofi
candy and baking products.
Falling prices in corn, wheat, Cot
ton, sugar and oats have knocked iit
least ;$g|OOu,fy00701)0 'from "th?^^WH?
which faimers expected to obtain.
There has been a heavy decline in
market prices of hogs, cattle and
sheep, while hay, tobacco, potatooB,
rice, fruits and other farm products
oro selling at prices far below the
high levels of 1920. Hundreds of mil
lions of dollars* value has been wiped
out In the hog market alone. Prob
ably a sum equal to the loss sustain
ed in whent. corn, cotton, oats and
sugar has been suffered in the other
While hogs, cattle and sheep have
dropped to record low prices |for
1920. the price of these meats at the
butcher shops has shown but slight
decrease. Packers have not lowered
their prices in ratio to the drop in
the live stock markets, but have
sought to unload their holdings tipon
the consumers at prices which would
moro than cover the cost of their
meats at the time of purchasing.
