It now seems all but certain that prices will continue high for our re maining stocks. What will happen when the new crop goes on the mar kets is something no one can clearly forsee. There are too many unknown and now unknowable factors to make predictions safe. The size of the com ing crop in the United States and other wheat-growing lands, the Influ ences of weather, the duration of the war, the status ot the Dardanelles these and other elements cloud the problem.

The Portland Public Docks com mission will force the people of that' city to vote on a $900,000 bond issue: In June to build a great public grain elevator and storage warehouse. The bonded indebtedness of that: city has reached a figure that makes the taxpayer stagger to think about' it, but it seems the end Is not yet' mo pitgram oi ciiy enter prises. Of course, no one can explain why a grain elevator is needed any more than a municipal coal bunker or a hop or wool warehouse, but the Docks commission must keep busy at something.
