A Speculator's View.
B. V. Hutchinson In North Am. Review.
All operations in the grains benefit
the grower, because they cause him
to get his price paid sooner, and they
are just as likely to put up prices as to
depress them; therefore the average
is maintained. But if there were no
speculation, the farmers could only
sell their grain to local buyers, who
would be liable to get full aud stop
buying, and then the farmer would
be compelled to wait for customers;
and in the meantime a mortgage
might be foreclosed on his farm, even
while the wheat in his bins would
more than satisfy the mortgage, if
converted into cash. But specula
tion, flashing its news over the wires
from one side of the world to the
other, keeps the market always open
to him. Chicago, St. Louis, Minne
apolis, practically lay down gold
dollars on the threshold of the most
remote barn in Dakota; aud all this
just because these cities furnish busy
speculators, whose brains and know
ledge command the moneyed re
sources of the whole United States so
far as wanted, and so far as every
dollar is represented by standard
grain at the market price, less a fair
margin for the bankers. Grain
operations benefit the consumer also;
because when there is an excess of
breadstufls, a low price stimulates
consumption and gives him a big
loaf; and when there is a deficit, a
high price enforces economy and
teaches him to eat more potatoes and
esculent roots and less bread, and
thus to give his neighbor a chance at
the loaf. In plentiful times men
are apt to waste flour. When there
is a short crop, then speculation in
the form of capital provident,
thirifty capital, the daughter of
economy and the sworn enemy of
wastefulness steps in, takes the pro
clous wheat, and says: "Now each
of you inhabitants of the planet can
have your share, and as much as is
good for you; but these are times of
dearth, and in-order to keep you
from using more than your proper
share, the price must be raised on
you." This follows from a wise law
of trade wnicn we can not do away
with, and ought not to try to do
away with that scarce things must
be dear. Make the loaf small and
dear if the crop is small; then no one
will waste it. Diamonds are small
and dear, and no one wastes them;
but a man can fling diamonds into
the sea with a better conscience than
he can waste bread when the world

It is a sad fact that there is very little
mutual confession done among Christians
in these days. The only kind of con
fession that ono hears much of is a kind
of general depreciation and humiliation
a convsntional assumption in toto of
