Pioneer families whose chief source
of income is the property they re
ceived for a song in early daya are
hit particularly hard by the new roll.
"What In the world are we coming
to?" mourned an elderly matron, de
scendant of Oregon pioneers, yester
day. "Why. 4',S per cent would be
good Interest on money. " The gov

"Good Lord!" ejaculated the St

amount, "that's what we used to pay
on a whole addition in St. Johns.
A somewhat similar comment came
from a Jit. Taborite.
When he glanced at his tax state

"He musta been kidding," com

Robbery, Some Declare.
Some taxpayers had been reading
the newspapers and were more or
less prepared for the shock when
they were handed tax statements.
Others apparently thought something
had happened while they slept.
"What's the big idea? This Is rob
bery!" wailed one.
"Where's it going to end?" demand
ed another of ail within hearing.
"Whew! pretty steep this year,"
was a rather common comment.
Many tax-payers of long standing
received their statements without
comment, and paid them without pro
test but their expressions of resig
nation were eloquent.

Mrs. Herbert A. Olson of this city

rooster's onslaught by her mother,
who, hearing; her cries, beat the
fowl off.

The British minister of munitions an

talized at 2."i.oo0,000 would form the cap
ital of the new company.
Arrangements are proceeding, tire minis
try states, to liquidate, as from January
1. the Australian section of the wool pur
chase account, transferring to the com
monwealth government, for account of the
wool growers, half of the surplus assets
The assets thus handed over to the comm
onwealth government will form tne cap
ital of a company, to be registered at Mel
bume under the style of the British-Australian

Kmland and other wool and the
sheepskins, now held by tne wntisn gov
ernment. It will be a condition of the
agency contract that It may at any time
be revoked by the government if the con
duct of the association's business departs
from the.asreed principles, or otherwise
gives ground tor dissatisfaction.

CHICAGO. Feb. 13. Uneasiness regard
ing the winter crop outlook led to a fresh
advance today in wheat. The . market
closed strong. t'iOc net higher, with
March $1.73(1 l.iuVi and May fl. 60jj 1.60'.
IVrn gained 2tii2ftc. 0als ISilliC and
provisions 15 to S5c
At first wheat displayed considerable
weakness. Later, however, reports be
came current that greenbugs had been dis
covered in Kansas. Aloreover. actual dam
age from the bugs was reported In Texas.
Misgivings were increased by word that
a leading field expert had said the crop
situation needed watching, -especially if
dry weather prevailed, as. the bugs .had
appeared a month earlier than usual.
Active general buying followed and the
market finished at about the topmost point
of the day.
Corn met with Increased demand, owing
to wheat strength. Besides, export buying
remained in evidence. Oats were swayed
upward by other irain.
Provisions went upward. Influenced by
an advance In hogs.
The Chicago market letter received yes
terday by the Overbeds & Cooke company
of Portland said:
Wheat After a decline early In the day.
the market gained strength and advanced
to the highest prices on the current move
mpni accompanied by extensive short-
covering, stimulated In part by increasing
complaints of green bugs in Oklahoma and
Kansas. Conservative people In the trade
do not consider this pest alarming as yet.
Receipts at all points were light, but
southwestern ivtces told of Increased of
ferings at the advance. Local cash pre
miums were reduced 1 cent. Gulf bids
were also 1 cent lower, on the basis of 17
cents over Chicago March. Export buying
was conspicuous by its absence. It is
apparent, however, mat tne competition
trade Is overbalanced by the strong sta
tistical position in the country and the
evidence that domestic milling consump
tion will take care of the wheat available
between now and the end of the crop year.
The setbacks should offer good buying op
portunities. Corn Heavy short-covering was influ
enced by the strength in wheat and as. op
position was' meager, the market advanced
rapidly. Further sales lor export, to
gether with continued light offerings
from the country, encouraged considerable
investment buying. Cash corn advanced
with futures and the trading basis was
quoted strong. At the present level of hog
prices, corn has a feeding value of at
least 1M) cents a buthel, and with the pro
ducer beginning to recognize this fact, it is
reasonable to assume that lutures win oe
gin to discount a stronger commercial
situation by reason of the 'disinclination
to accept present prices.
Oata Rallied sharply with other grains
and sold at new h,ish figures on the cur
rent movement. Influential news was
lacking, aside from some reports of dam
age to volunteer oats ih the extreme south
west. Cash prices were lower early, but
advanced with futures towards the close.
Rye Short-covering was stimulated by
the advance m other grains and although
there was no news to give the market in
dividuality, the tone was decidedly strong
