The Potato Market.
Last week W. R. Mackenzie made
the statement to the Pioneer that he
believed potatoes would go to seven
ty-five cents a bushel before January
1. Mr. Mackenzie based his opinion
on the fact that potatoes in Aroo
stock county, Maine, are now selling
for over one dolalr a bushel and that
Aroostock county is considered the
key of the world's potato market.
Bemidji merchants have taken ex
ception Mr. Mackenzie's state
ments and claim that potatoes will
not go high this winter. They say
that the production last year was
close to 100,000,000 bushels short
of what it is this year and that a
difference of even 5,000,000 bushels
would cause the price to be lower.
They advise farmers to sell while the
market is strong as late reports' from
Chicago indicate a weak market there
and also in Kansas City.
Whether or not he should sell now,
each' farmer must decide himself
but it is not fair for a farmer who
is owing for merchandise to hold his
crops in hope that the market will
go higher when it may go lower. He
runs the risk of losing the results of
a year's work and forcing his mer
chants to carry the acount for anoth
er year. The farmer who is out of
debt can afford to speculate. The
farmer who is not has no more right
to speculate than the city business
man who is in debt to his wholesale
New Field for Merchants.
If Congressman S teenerson is suc
cessful in his promised endeavors to
have congress order built a harbor
on Red Lake .at Redby, Bemidji mer
chants will, have an entirely new
field opened to them. The business
from this field is at present going to
Thief River Falls, although the
people would rather trade in their
own county and keep their money
at home. The people on the reserva
tion want the harbor, the people who
live in the surounding country want
the harbor, and if Bemhlji will back
Congressman Steenerson, work on the
harbor should be started some time
Should Be Looking Forward.
Paving operations were started so
late this year that the contractors
are having trouble finding men and
it is possible that the Nymore road
may not be completed before freeze
up. Men have been attracted to the
harvest fields by the offer of high
wages and few are left for city work.
The city should start this fall pre
paring for the paving that is to be
done next year. All of the prelimin
ary work, such as any special elec
tions if necessary, floating of bond
etc., should be done before
snow is off the ground in the
spring so that when the contracts
are let, the city will have the bene
fit of a low labor cost.
Contractors will figure high
enough to cover the cost of top price
labor when they see that their jobs
are to run into the fall. If they can
start work in the spring, they can
get men for less money and the cost
per yard to the city for paving will
be materially cut. It is practically
certain that more paving will be laid
next year and it should be laid
