To understand the situation, one must know the record of the existing twelve months leading up to the Ar gentine shipments. During the first ! half of March 1907, wheat prices ruled at a low level. May. 19'i7." contracts iti the Chicago market were gradually de pressed until 74 5-S was recorded on March 21. The depression was due to very large receipts of spring wheat at terminal markets, an increasing visible supply, reports of large farm reserves, 2U7.l'(tfi,nii bushels, heavy competitive shipments by Argentine, India and Australia, and a general accumulation of supplies at home and abroad. Then came the first reHrt of louse or green bug in Texas and oiher por tions of the farsouthwest. Prices be gan to harden, slowly at first, and -Hie first week s April saw two cents re covery from the break brought on by the features named above. Exiierts ; were sent from many leading houses on the various grain exchanges to in vestigat? the existence of the green bug in tin- southwest. They reported the Infested area in Kansas spreading. A little later the green bug was found in a few counties in Nebraska, and the price on Many cirfitracts was up to 7!t 1-4 as a result. As the pest becanv more prevalent ar.d the facts were , made known through regular trade : channels the market became broad anil strong hacked by a large voiume of public buying. May 13. contracts foe month were advanced to 94 1-2, May 15 ' to S6 1-2. May 17 to 99 1-2. May 21 to $1. and May 27 to $1.03 1-2. Prices for 'July and September were forced to a premium. July 1 cent over May, Sep tember price 2c over top quoted for , May. The market had natural leactions from such an advance and lateti the j trade took advantage of the unfavor t able outlook for the spring wheat har I vest and again advanced prices. As a j direct result of trading in advance on conditions wljicri experienced grain ! men know would result in short yields I for the year, the wheat raisers over ! the entire winter wheat belt were en ! abled to rush their surplus to market ' at far better than normal prices and over 100 millions shipped shipped from i the 1906-7 crop. Early in December I reports confirmed large yields. Con- i ditions for the' entire harvest period 1 of December "and January were most favorable and the grain raisers and ex- ! porters of Argentine were quick to of- . fer wheat in great quantities to Eu- i rope. European buyers who had been ! paying fancy prices for American wheat for months took the La Plata j offerings eagerly. Not only did Eu- rope make contracts for 40,000,000 to $00,000,000 bushels of Argenllite wheat before a bushel of it was threshed, but i every effort known to modern com- ! merce was put forth to move the South ; American w heat to the importing cen-. I ters of Europe at the earliest possible j date. After the shipping season was fairly under way the wheat trade of the world saw the ports of Argentine , clear about 20.000,0000 bushels of wheat ' in thiee weeks surprising the grain trade of two continents by shipping over 7,500,000 in one week. Naturally the grain trade of this country saw the inevitable effect of the enormous outpouring of Argentine wheat in depressing prices sharply at all importing centers. Recognizing the importance of this direct competition, prices were quickly forced lower in all home markets. From $1.08 1-2 record-Id on May 190S. contracts in the Chicago market early.

The real value of the present sys tem of marketing grain rests on a broader basis however, then mere tem porary profit in Time of trouble. It opens up for the daily benefit of the producer the combined buying demand of the civilized world and gives his crop a cash value any day or month in the year. This not always to the ad vantage of the big milling interests, who would like to deprive the farmer of this perpetual market, and limit his dialings u Midline for Immediate delivery so that they could take ad vantage of the necessity in m -t cases of getting his crop off his hand.-? soon after it has been harvested. The mil lers, therefore, are strongly in favor of certain laws now being considered in congress which have for their ob ject the abolition of time dealings in grain and other agricultural products. These proposed laws boldly under take tasks which have been found Im possible and have long been discarded in other countries as chimerical. To prohibit, through legislative enactment, the buying and selling of grain for fu ture delivery on legitimate established produce exchanges might eliminate possible ills in the trade, but would kill instead of cure the patient. It is apparent to those who are familiar with the subject, that the authors of this proMsed legislation are laboring under a grave misapprehension of the true facts and conditions governing the buying and selling of grain. They overlook the all important fact that the only competition the miliers now have is in the exchanges In th buying of grain fur future delivery. Therefore! the abolition of time dealings would eliminate this competition and in the end surely would reduce the number of i buyers of cash cereals from the farm !er, and thereby materially put down ( the price of the grain he has to sell. In j other words, the millers Avould be able to secure their raw material at a much j lower figure and at ftie expense of the j farmer, because of a lack of comieti ! tion. j The fundamental mistake made by most advocates of this well meaning , legislation Is in confusing legitimate buying and selling for future delivery and mere betting In a buefcetship. The ! first is a strict commercial transac tion between buyer and seller, and is a i necessary part of the trade mechanism, ' whereas the second is pure gambling. ; has only harmful results and has met with consistent opposition on the part , of legitimate exchanges all over the I country. ' A "bucket shop" is a place wherein jare posted, as they occur the fluctu ating 'prices of grains, provisions and stocks in the great exchanges at the .leading commercial centers. L'nder the 'guise of a contract to buy or sell one iur the other of these commodities, the i proprietor of the "shop" will wager any comer that the price will advance be jfore it declines, or will decline before It advances, to a certain named point. 'Neither party "buys" anything. Neith er party 'sells" anything. The decis ions of the wager hang upon a fuota tioii which is male by men engaged in .actual trade perhaps live hundred or a thousand miles distant, with which the bettors have nothing to do-and upon which their wager exerted no influ ence. Dealing in bucket shops, then, is merely gambling on the rise and fall of prices as made on the legitimate .exchanges, and such dealing has a di rect and powerful effect in reducing th price paid to th producer for the products of the farm. The passing of legislation aimed to root out this evil could accomplish nothing but good, but .an attempt to include in the prohibl ! tion legitimate buying and selling for future delivery would be ill advised in ithe extreme and would deprive Ameri can farmers of benefits which would still be enjoyed by their increasingly important rivals In Argentine and oth er parts of the world. found their way there.
