VOLUME I -NO. 123. END OF WHEAT BLOCKADE NOT YET IN SIGHT Thousands of Bushels of Grain Lying out of Doors at Stations Along the Columbia River and on Line of Great Northern Railway. The end of the wheat blockade in Seattle is not yet in siaht. Agent A. A. Piper received advices from Seattle today stating that there were is; cars of wheat in the yards yet to be taken care ot and that they were being emptied at the rate of twelve cars a day. At this rate Wenatchee alone could keep the Seattle terminals blocked for weeks. Unless there is sudden demand for export wheat the blockade, with the present Seattle facilities, will last for weeks. Mr. Piper states that there never has been a condition like this before. He gives as a reason for the blockade that the elevator men had not made prepara tions for the immense crop of wheat that was grown in the state this year an.l they were caught raj) i ;?. He believes that conditions in Seattle will rem riu unchanged for two weeks at •he very least. W. S Gehr, manager of the milling company, takes a *"cry gi joray view of tne situation. Yesterday be gave orders to his bnyeis on the river stations to cease buying wheat until January 1. The warehouses that nre controlled by his company along the line of .he Gieat Noithern railway quit buying grain some time ago. The compauy has oue hundred thousand sacks of wheat out doors at present and is liable to incur heavy loss if rainy weather sets in. At least 100, 000 sacks are out of doors. Most of the company's wheat is at Bridgeport; They have 25,000 sacks of wheat out side t' ere. There are 14,000 sacks out of doors at Tramway and wheat out of doors at every river station excent Orondo. Along the line of the Great Northern conditions are the same. The most of tiie wheat i? atEphrata where there arelo.ooo sicks piled out of doors. Tiie mill in this city does not do much to relieve the situation as they use only about one tho/sand bushels of grain a day. Wheat cannot be shipped to Spokane on account of the heavy loss that it wonld mean to the shipper. Wheat sells at the same price in Spokane that it does in We natchee and freight charges are high. T l iere are not many mills or elevat ors in Spokane aud it would not take long to duplicate Seattle conditions there. The C andt) Company wi'l continue to haul wheat down the river as long as the high water lasts. They have not facilities for storing the grain other than to pile it along te river bank but in order to protect the farmer from tbe lo;s he would have to bear did behave to hold his wh.eat until next spring the hr>at eomany is helping in this fashion. T. A. Davies roughly estimates the quantity of wheat at hand at tbe We natchee docks of the company at abmt 15,000 sacks or about 25,000 bushels. The boat company has a force of men creeling platforms and have already used 50,000 feet of lumber for this pur pose . CITY COUNCIL ORDERS ALL DOGS KILLED HACKETT3TOWN, N. J..
