1 THE COSTS 55 CENTS TO RAISE BUSHEL production of Wheat in Cana dian Northwest Not Snap It Is Supposed to Be. American wheat growers and farm ers will be interested in a report of a (ommifflon appoint by th govern ment of Saskatchewan "to examine Into the ays and means for better jaif the position of Saskatchewan grain In the European markets." In cident to this investigation the com Biission looked into the cost of pro d'jcinfT wheat under present condi tions in that province of Canada. The wheat producers of various sections of the Cnited States will be interested to know that under present conditions the cost of prod'icinc wheat as deter mined by the commission is reported to be 55 cents per bushel on the farm and (- cents per bushel f. o. b. cars at xuntry points. According to the re port, the cost of production has In creased 1C.13 per cent ince 1909, hile. on the other hand, the price of wheat to the Saskatchewan farmer lus decreased from 81 15 cents per bushel in 1H09 to fif 1-8 cents per bush el in 1913. leaving a net return, on this basis, of 4 1-8 cents per bushel to the farmer. " It is possible that the interesting figures which have been developed by the train commission will account for the fact that a large numiier of Amer ican farmers who have, in recent jears. left the states to engage in farming !n this territory are now ask ing for a certificate which permits the return of household effects to the United States. If the economic situa tion suggested in the above statement Is not the cause, perhaps it may be fnuni in the long and rigorous win ters characteristic of tins section as compared with those in the leading farming districts of the states.
