SENATOR CAPPER OF KANSAS
WOULD HAVE TAX ON
PROPOSES BILL IR 60RGRESS
Northwest Wheat Exchange Pro
posed by Elmore of Washing
ton State Farmers'
of Kansas lias .proposed a bill to
stop gambling in foodstuffs and cot
A tax of 10 per cent, designed to he
prohibitive on ''future" trading in
grain and cotton, except by actual
owners or a limited class of traders
under federal license, is tlie basic
feature of the Capper bill, which
is introduced iu the senate by the
author and in the house of represen
tatives by Representative Tincher,
republican of Kansas. The 10 per
i-ent tax would apply to options and
the measure would affect grain prod
ucts as well as raw grain.
"Tlie bill will stop gambling in
wheat, corn.-cotton and other farm
products," says Senator Capper. "It
will eliminate tlie wheat pit and the
blackboards. It will put out of busi
ness the thousands of wire houses
and bucket shops by making it im
possible for gamblers and speculators
to deal on boards of trade."
Another resolution by Dickinson of
Iowa authorizes the appointment of
« special committee to investigate
grain, livestock and cotton prices and
to recommend legislation designed to
remedy present conditions.

First steps toward remedial legis
lation for farmers at tlie coming ses

He says tlie northwest wheat ex

in accordance with the production of
the states. Headquarters will prob
ably be in Spokane.
