PULLMAN CITIZENS LOAD UP ON FLOUR Pullman is experiencing a flour | buying movement which bids fair to ; deplete the stocks of the local mer i chants In short order. It Is report ed that one local dealer sold 40 bar ) rels of flour in a single day, with other merchants reporting unpre cedented sales of the kitchen neces sity. Many citizens who have been purchasing flour in small quantity on a falling market give involuntary indication of their belief that wheat will strengthen by purchasing large quantities Of Hour In anticipation of lan early increase in flour prices, in i sympathy with the expected wheat advances. While local farmer*; contend steadfastly thai anything under $2 will result in a dead loss on the IP2O wheat crop, some express an i intention of selling when "the price reaches $1.76.'! Others say they will let loose at 12 and play even, while | many give voice to an intention of i holding for better than $2. WOULD LEVY DUTY ON IMPORTED WHEAT Congressman Summers Takes Action Looking to Relief of Wheat Growers Washington, 1). C, Dec. S. -(Spe- I cial i Almost simultaneously with i the opening of the third session of i the 66th congress last Monday, Con gressman John W. Summers launch ed a legislative campaign for the re lief of the wheat growers of the coun | try by the introduction of a bill levy ing a duty of 25 cents per bushel on I all wheat Imported into the United | States. The present duty is 10 cents per bushel and then only upon wheat shipped from a country which also has an import, tariff on United States wheat. Wheat from Canada, or any other country which has no duty on American wheat, comes into this country free, and the Wheat Grow ers associations of Washington and of Idaho have gone on record as fa voring a protective tariff to prevent this influx of cheap foreign wheat. "Unprecedented development of cheap wheat lands in Canada, during the past few years, has brought the wheat growers of the United States a vital problem," said Congressman Summers, while speaking in behalf of his bill. "This extensive develop ment of Canadian raw lands was pushed vigorously during the war, but in that period the demand of the European market was such that American markets were not dis turbed. Now, however, the policy of business expediency, adopted by Canada, has permitted a free entry of her wheat into our markets, whenever desired. "At various wheat growers' con ferences held in the Northwest dur ing the past summer this problem was carefully considered and it was generally agreed that a higher tariff on foreign wheat was one of the so lutions. It is now up to congress to give this much needed relief to our i farmers. When the wheat growers of the Inland Empire, in the State of Washington, the best wheat pro ducing section of the United States, are striving to make financial ends meet, it is evident the growers in less j favored sections have still greater cause for complaint, so I am expect ing whole-hearted support of this! .hill from all grain growing sections of the country, : "The production of wheat is essen ] Hal to the life of our nation and its | marketing is of supreme importance i to producers and consumers alike. In ! either case the industry needs protec | Hon, both from foreign competition and from the influence of gambling transactions. The stabilization of wheat values and wheat product;* concerns every tiller of the soil and jevery eater of bread, and this value certainly should bear a close rela- I Hon to the cost of production and to | the law of supply and demand. It j is probably impossible to stop specu lation at this time, but we can stop the influx of cheap foreign wheat, i and, no doubt lend financial assist ance in other ways suggested," I *— MOTHERS' CLUB TO MEET NEXT MONDAY The Mothers' club will meet next Monday afternoon at 3:15 at the high I school building.
