IS WITKMS; BELIEF
President of Northwestern Grain Dealers Association Home . From Convention. A combination of easily traced condi tions purely local to tjie United States is responsible for the decline of wheat prices rather than importations from Canada, in the opinion of Jared Watkins of Great Falls, president of the North western Grain Dealers' association, who has returned from the annual conven tion of the Grain Dealers' National as sociation, held at Minneapolis, October 11. 12 and 13. Wheat brought in from Canada up to last week totalled only to 10,000,000 bushels and Mr. Watkins found the belief prevailing among deal er's that the effect on the market in the United States was negligible. The sale of 125,000.000 bushels of wheat for export during July. August and September, the refusal of bakers to lay in large stocks of wheat at this time, the sympathetic drop reflecting the sway of prices in other commodities and the shortage of freight cars is thought by Mr. Watkins to have been the prevailing influences in bringing the »rice of wheat down to its present level. He does not consider that there is any incentive to hold wheat for a raise un less the grower is prepared to wait, probably until after the first of the year, to market his crop. Import from Canada Small. "The argument that wheat importa tions from Canada under the present tariff laws have caused the price of wheat to come down does not find many patient listerers among dealers who are familiar with conditions which have actually exerted an influence on the market,'' said Mr. Watkins. "When I was in Minneapolis last week not more than 10.000,000 bushels of wheat had been received from Canada, an amount not sufficient to effect our market in the least. The real causes for the slump in prices come from an entirely different nource and I think there is no difficulty in recognizing them once the facts are presented. England Bid Price Up. "During July, August and September England came into our market and pur chased 125,000,000 bushels of wheat, the first threshed in the United States. This wheat was purchased to meet a supposed emergency and little attention was given to prices paid. The effect was that the prices then established had noth ing to sustain them when the foreign buyers withdrew, and until they return prices will be largely without stimulation that comes with a lively demand for export. When these buyers will again interest themselves in our markets is now a matter for conjecture, for it has developed that England# anticipated emergency did not wholly exist. It is certain that a pronounced loss was tak en on much wheat purchased for export, which indicates that more wheat was bought than could be immediately assim ilated. English buyers will not be back on our market nor will American prices be influenced by them until this wheat is consumed. Bakers Fail to Buy. "The effect exercised on the market by the failure of bakers to buy their annual stocks now is very pronounced. The bakers, like every one else are buy ing very sparingly, and are evidently waiting for a lower level of values. Buy ers of all classes have no confidence in the market. No wheat of any consequen ce is carried over from day to day. Every one shows a desire to clean out their stocks every night. "The national decline in the price of many commodities other than wheat is being reflected in values of wheat and wheat products. In the east the failing of prices on most essentials has attract ed the public mind very seriously and it is not difficult to see that the reaction is bound to affect; wheat. Railroad Equipment Short. Railroads everywhere are doing their utmost to provide cars for the trans portation of wheat, but the fact is that every road in the country is short of equipment and deliveries of empties can not. be made. It is very obvious, T think, that when deliveries are uncertain the effect is reflected in the price of commodities involved. "Nearly all grain men are at this time pessimistic concerning prices. They do not anticipate any increase of consequen ce within the present year, and for the reasons I have outlined. There is no en couragement to hold wheat unless it is possible for the grower to dolny market ing his grain until after the first of the year, if T am able to analyze the situation accurately. World Price Will Level Out. "There is no more wheat in Canada and the United States than the world wants, and to get back again to importa tions from the dominion I wnnt to repeat that wheat brought, across the border has bad little or .no effect on our markets. When the marketing season is ended and the world price of wheat levelled out, it can be easily possible that United States farmers, especially in the east, will ma terially benefit because of wheat import ed from Canada. "To illustrate the point, let us say that 50,000,000 bushels are shipped across the line. Canadian wheat, like Montana wheat, is of high quality and in eood demand with millers for blending. With 50.000,000 bushels of Canadian wheat in the United States, it is certain that if a surplus is found to exist later in the season, stocks on the market will consist to an extent of the poorer grades of home grown wheat. If prices advance at all it will be when this possible surplus is an the market and the inferior grades, for which the demand is very poor now, will receive the benefit of the advance even more, than the better grades. This will be true, T think, because less discrimina tion is shown against poor grades when wheat stocks are low." Twelve hundred delegates from every growing state in the union were present at the convention, which this year con sidered especially problems growing out of transportation, price fluctuations and grading. Since his return Mr. Wat-kins has been notified of his appointment to the national committee on uniform grades. He was a member of the resolu tions committee at the convention.

THRESHING ENDING IN JUDITH BASIN Scattering Fields and Fringe Near Foothills All That Re main, Says Wahoske. j Only scattering fields and a fringe near the foothills of the Belt and Snowy mountains remain to be threshed of the big crop grown this year in the Judith basin according to H. R. Wahoske, di vision freight and passenger agent for the Milwaukee railway, who returned Thursday from a trip to Winnett, Lewis town and Harlowton. Fields still to be threshed in the Central part of the basin represent a huge volume of wheat, Mr. Wahoske stated, but considered on a comparative basis the benchlands have nearly all been reached by the threshers. Near the foothills the harvest was from two to three weeks later than on the benches and there great fields of wheat still await the threshing crews. Between Judith Gap and Harlowton much threshing remains unfinished and in the Judith Gap country many fields of shocks are yet to be seen, Mr. Wahoske said. All of the remainder of the present month and a considerable portion of November will be required to wind up threshing in the central portion of the State. SUES FOR DIVORCE; GOES BACK T O JAIL Mrs. Daniel Safford Loses Free dom Because Bondsmen With drew $500 Surety.
