Money is not yet ag,ln be able t0 b,, J' tbe things that factories produce does not now seem so far distant. The Grain Marketing Company ' struck its first snag. For the bene- j fit of those who have not been fol lowing its course closely, it might lie well to sketch the words, plan in a few The Grain Marketing Company of Chicago is formed through the con- ! solidation of five big terminal eleva- ! tor companies. The plan has been sponsored by the Farm Bureau Fell eration with a view in mind of créa- i tim; one linge national grain market ing organization. At present, control in the company is vested in the five companies which own the terminal elevators involved in the deal. It is planned to float perferred stock among farmers, with whom control will eventually be vested. In the mean time stock is to lie sold to private individuals, and the management of the elevators will remain as at present. The details of the plan are quite intricate, and subject to much con troversy. So when the whole proposi tion came up before the National Farmers drain Dealers' association— in which 5,000 cooperative local ele vators hold memliership—it was de nied endorsement. Control should lie vested in the various small elevators which are to lie integral parts of the whole system a d not with individual farmers, the association decided. So it is not going to lie smooth sailing to put the venture through to a successful conclusion. It is highly probable that this plan will fail, but in failing it will leave be hind something that will open tbe way to a great national grain mar keting organizatio» for the future. Economically the plan seems to be sound. Co-operative marketing such a scale must be through inono on poly. It private grain marketing companies exist alongside ^etvoifira tive marketing agencies, the farmers will never lie much (tetter off. One great system is needed. Some day that one system will come into being, and then the farmer will not be at- the mercy of the speculator, and gambler on the board of trade. He will control the market supply of his own product and in a measure will he able to determine the price he is to get for it. I Speaking of farm relief, it might lie well to recall the fute of the Me Nary-Haugan bill which was design ed to bring relief to farmers every I where. It died in committee, and there is little probability that it will its opponents, I.ittle was said about the actual merit of the proposal—the question. "Will it work?" was not often asked. It was ever lie revived. "Subsidy" shouted and it no longer had a chance. merely branded, with one word, and I that word sent it to death. The It didn't get, a fair chance. plan in brief was this: The govern ment was to form a Grain Market ing Corporation, the function of which would lie to buy up surplus grain to pijevent a glutting of the markets, and to export that grain to foreign countries. Yes, it might have meant empty-. ing the public treasury of a few mil lion dollars every year, but those facts should also lie considered. Labor has formed its unions for tly» purpose of guaranteeing to it self a living wage. Its welfare is no longer depended upon tbe law of supply and demand. The manufact urer shuts down bis factory when there is danger of a surplus so that tlie prices of his product will not go below production costs. But the farmer has no such pro tection. A surplus means financial loss to him for be cannot control his production. It seems that any pro posal to guarantee a living wage to tlie food producers of the country might well Ik* discussed on its merits —not sent to oblivion witli the epi taph "subsidy" set up over its grave.
