the grain dealer*, and the railway laaccuaad
by many grain buyer* of giving a big reduc
tion on wheat rates to the Lake of the
WiHids Milling company, which hi con
trolled by tbe road magnates and the
Ogilviea. Both firms are the biggest gruln
dealers in tbe country These two firms are
paying such high figure* for wheat that all
other dealer* have hfcn forced to retire
from com petition as buyer*. They ciaiat
that the road must be giving a rebate to tbe
firms named, as otherwise they could not
pay tbe price they are paying. It I*
claimed that the object Is political and
that the company is being Influenced by
the dominion iti?¥criniient. -which i* bound
to see the price paid tor wheat In Manitoba
as Ugh a*'that paid in Mlnaesota wai the

price of the latter
iiaa gone up considerably and tbe deniaad
ts very large. Last week coal w»- selllug
at 7. rents per buahei and to-day the price
was raised to Ii cents on short hauls and
and 10 cents ou hill trips. This week tho
operator* have forced the price per tiat
nearly 1 cent on each bushel. The price
will not remain stationary apd a much
higher rate b» expected. A number of deal
ers say It is not improbable that the price
will reach la cent* or more per buahei bo
fore the winter la over. Tbe heavy demand
for coal has caused a famine for flats, and
river coal dealer* find a great deal of trou
