It is just the same In Idaho as in
Ohio, where a recent publication says:
"Fear of a world famine helped to
cause the last dollar advance in wheat
on recent bulge. Government unin
tentionally stimulated it. It tried to
stimulate an increased acreage and
economy in eating. It alarmed house
wives. They loaded up on flour by the
barrel and other foodstuffs. Many
families now have enough to supply
them for months. They did not real
ize that wheat figures made it pos
sible for them to buy July and Sep
tember flour at three to five dollars
under the cash prices. Last week
some foreign women stormed a Chica
go mill which never had sold flour at
retail. They threatened unless they
were allowed to buy flour by the bar
rel.
with $3,800 of flour in one day. They
paid casli for it. Similar conditions
have existed here and elsewhere. It
has been general, it is subsiding."

connection President Wilson well

seems to me imperative that powers
of tills sort should be granted."
The treasury department apparently
made a mistake at the beginning of
the great sale of government bonds
by giving out optimistic news as to
the demand for them which indicated
that the entire loan would be sub
scribed at once. Naturally, this dis
couraged most of those whose sub
scription would have been impelled by
a sense of duty or patriotism. Secre
tary of the Treasury McAdoo is now
engaged in a personal campaign thru
the country to give a new impetus to
subscriptions—an effort that appears
to be attended with great success.
Congress is greatly perplexed over
the fact that making the country "dry"
for the period of the war, as has been
seriously proposed, would cut off
some three hundred and fifty millions
of revenue from the proposed increas
ed tax on liquors. Better find the
money somewhere else; although,
speaking on the proposition to pro
hibit the use of grain for making
whiskey. Senator Stone asserted that
enough was now stored in bond to last
the American people for at least four
years.
In the wild search for revenue, the
congress is considering raising the
postage rate paid by newspapers in
mailing to regular subscribers. It
would seem that, with present prices
on paper, etc., the newspapers were
sufficiently handicapped; but
measures are not subject to ordinary
criticism.
