CANADIANS PROTEST PRICE FIXING ON PORK PRODUCTS
FARMERS' OPPOSITION TO LANE PLAN NOT WITHOUT
REASON CATTLE SHORTAGE FORESEEN WITH RECEIPTS
THIS YEAR BELOW 1918 EUROPEAN CROP PROSPECTS

Canadian .Funnel and allied Inter
ests lire vigorously protesting tlie ilx
lug of prices on pork products. The
fanner's inability to liuike a fair pro
tit will eurtnll production, they nsscrt.
The price fixing movement in Canada
bears u resemblance to the eompnlgn
against meat prices in this country
and the arguments produced are much
the same. It may possibly demons
trate the success or failure of 'price
regulation before the United States
further commits itself to the experiment.
iSome market critics believe that
That crop prospects In eastern
Kurope, as reported by the department
of Agriculture, should much exceed
previous oflleial estimates and un
authentic rumors lias a decided bear
'ng upon exports. Throughout Ger
many the entire acreage is under cul
tivation, although It Is presumed the
yield will fall below normal, due to
lack of fertilizers. None of the. large
estates In east Gallcla were tilled this
year, but fully DO per cent of peasant
holdings are in crop. Food shortage

cattle shortage Is reflected In the linn I suffered f.oni drouth, and their pros-
or using prices witten nave mniuiy
prevailed for some weeks. Receipts
at Western markets have decreased
from last year, despite the heavy run
of range stuff. Recently the price ad
vance has been less hampered by nntl
packer agitation and the government's
campaign against high prices.
The farmers' opposition to the Lane
plan Is natural In view of measures
proposed to restrict immigration. The
farmers, ilia ving suffered from a short
age of labor, urge that ex-soldlers be
settled on farms hitherto in cultiva
tion, where they may acquire holdings
of their Hiwii. rather than sent to re
claim prematurely arid land which the
country needs in service less than It
needs Intensive cultivation of Its pres
ent acreage an acreage abundantly
able to supply all Immediate wants.
While any food surplus created under
the Lane plan might itind an outlet in
export, this Is by no means assured.

Bulgaria and even Hungary are
nearly on a pre-war basis as concerns
the production of bread grains. Rou

These three countries will probably
export at least l.Uotl.OOO tons of
bread grains. Federal experts expect
little Increase in the acreage devoted
to bread grain crops throughout east
ern anil northern Kurope next year.
The production of northern Kurope
will Increase when fertilizers become
available, but will probably not ex
ceed pre-war production for some
years to come.
The demand for American food ex

two years. The bulls found little en

ly wiped out. The country has been
cleaning up the old-crop and receipts
have been large. Traders hnve been
uneiiulvocally bearish. The cattle
market told a different story. For
some weeks prices moved up or held
firmly. Traders talk still higher
prices. Buyers who have studied
eastern and southern grazing districts
report few more cattle available In
these regions. Prediction is made of
a shortage. Packers have apparently
been averse to any advance in mut
ton. Active feeder demand in sheep
was noted at limes, tending to
strengthen the market.
THE MARKET TREND
Cheered by steady improvement in
the president's condition, .favorable
news from tlie steel strike, encourag
ing trade reports, and other factors,
the stock market assumed a buoyant
and aggressive aspect. Not until
much public participation has caused
over c.vtensiou, traders think, will
prices break sharply, if at all. al
though the market, having partially
discounted the settlement of present
labor troubles, may react somewhat.
Price inflation, here as elsewhere, If
such It is, will remain in tlie ascen
dancy so long as circulating media
and credit are Inflated and a shortage
of goods and labor persists. The ac
tion of money rates in soaring up
ward, while partly tcchnianl. suggests
the possible desire of banking inter
ests to restrict market loans.
One commission house has hitherto
believed the market overbought, and
credit overextended. A further rise
lu this case would predicate some
rather positive development. Yet.
while certain values sire inflated, oth
ers undeniably are not.
WoOl shows continued Inactivity
without fliurket change In price. Tlie
government will resume Its sale of -surplus

Manufacturers are doubtless awaiting
these auctions before buying heavily.
Word conies that the British govern
ment may follow the Initial auction
sales nt Boston now anticipated with
monthly shipments Xor so long a time
as the American wool trade will ab
sorb them. This seems to be part of
a broad scheme whereby the British
government Intends reducing its pres
ent stock of l,.O0,00l bales and Its
new clip of tlie same amount.
