Is It Worth It?
THE desire to make something besides the

lured many to loss and poverty.
There is nothing so sur& to lead to wealth

The safe and proper way to accomplish .tiws

Pnless the railroads can bring flour
into this city faster than they heve In
the last three weeks there will be a terl
ous situation by the middle of neit
week, and by the first of the following
week It may be positively dangerous, it
was declared yesterday by flour job
bers, grain dealers and representatives
of milling companies.
It was the genera opinion that only
s bout 10 per cent of the normal flow
of flour into New York is now being
moved across the river. There was a
surplus what was tonsidcied a fairly
safe suiplus as late as three weeks ago.
But New Tork ufes approximately
30.000 barrels of flour a day, and al
ready the bakejirs and chain grocery
stores are complaining tliuthej cannot
get flour. Some of it is trickling amiss
the rjver. but tlie prsfuie if bM-oming
harder and the orcers increasingly hard
to fill.
Ii C. Broentiiman, president of th
company which hears his tiauir and
New York representative of the North
western Consolidated Mi'llug Compan,
raid that tlie bakerf aud otliei large
consumer of flour have rcacut-U a cilti
tal stage with their sttxks.
"There has been no presume vntll
now," said Mr lljoennlman. "but unles
the situation shows a nimKed lmpiove
memt soon things wrll begin to louk
liangerous. A"e arc abolutel h'-lplss.
and the ralhoads assuie u that they
aie doing all in their power to move the
flour. Th! firm has moie than 300
cars of flour Mimrwheie hetween here

five weeks. Tne surplus which xi.ted
two weeks sro lias just about been ex
hausted All wt can do if to keep on
pleading ith the milroad. ti. do tnelr
best"
John O. tVade, lepresentative of the
Pillshurv Hour Mills Company, was
careful to make il plain that no famine
exists, but be said that the rapM deple
tion of stocks ill result in a serious
situation wioti unless mote flour can be
moved across from the Jerse shore.
"I th!t,k tb railroads will rerogmze
what is.about to happen and will prevent
it if they tan." said Mr. Wade -The
situation is ."rlons to the extent that
the movement directly into New Tork is
hampered. There is plenty of flour near
here an.d in transit 1 1-elieve there is
even enough in Jersey Cit to prevent
the threat of famine, if it could only be
moved acrois Dealers in New Tork are
willing to leceive Sour anywhere on
Manhattan Island that can he reached
with trutks. 1 think ne would even be
willing to go to Jersey City after it. if
that were possible.
"Some of the larger bakers are pro
testing. We hafe bought and contracted
for enough fiour to last a long, long
time, but we are helpless so long as it
is tied up. tVben the bakeries and gro
cery stores run through with their .sup
ply" and can't get more, then the people
will liegin to get hungry in a surpris
ingly short time. Flour is so Important
that we simply must have it, and very
soon."
Tlie milling companies in this city are
unable to get whole wheat for the same
reason that flour is not coming in. They
hace plenty of wheat bought and in
transit, but the percentaje which actu
ally Is coming into the city is only about
lo'jier cent- of normal

Mr Lauck's rtutemeiit was made In

an even greater extent since the war. I
