Datlare* Market Gamblers Caused Present Conditions and the Con sumer Must Pay the Cost. Washington, April 19.—"There is sufficient wheat In the country at nor mal prices to make bread for the American people up to the time when the new crop comes in," declared Sec retary of Agriculture Wilson anent the Chicago wheat corner, "and those who attempt to keep prices up at pres ent rates expect to get their money out of the common people—the con sumera." Secretary Wilson's statement was made in reply to criticisms of J. A. Patten of Chicago of the crop reports SECRETARY WILSON. of the department of agriculture. Mr. Patten not only discredited the de partment's estimate of the wheat crop, but said that the supply of wheat was scarcer than the government's esti mates showed. "The reiwrters of the department of agriculture are farmers living on farms and know, if anybody knows, and have knowledge, if anybody has knowledge, of the facts," declared the secretary. "The large majority of wheat has left the hands of the farmers," con tinued the secretary. "A fictitious price has been created. The farmers are not beneficiaries of such condl tiuns. They will naturally plant mor wheat and next year's crop Is likely to be abnormally large, when the gam bkrs will not be in the market and mischief will be done by the distui'i ante of the crop system. "In the corner of 1898, when the price of wheat was run up to th« price was depressed the follow!: year below 80 cents, the result, un doubtedly, of the upsetting of the equilibrium of normal supply and de mand." To show that a scarcity of wheat in this country is not the cause of the present abnormal increase in the prices Secretary Wilson points out that the amount of wheat produced in the calendar year 1908 was 6(i5,00'». 000 bushels, as compared with 634,00 ». 000 bushels for the crop year 19(»7, making 31,000,000 bushelB more for the last crop year than was found the year previous.
