Crain Corporation Refuses-to Enter
Into Contracts With Foreign
Bujerst This Time.
Rumor in some of the farming district"
that 'carrying charge are to be put on the
basic wheat prices, which have checked the
tendency of farmers to sell, are er at rest
by the following bulletin, which has been,.
Issued by M. H. Houser. second vice-president
of the grain corporation :
The United States frrain corporation, an
nounces that there will be no storage pre
miums added to the basic prices Id its bay
ing scale for the present nor ilntil there ac
cumulates in the grain corporation's hands
a. sufficient reserve of wheat to assure a
measure of protection for future home re
'qulrements. In accordance with this policy the. wheat
director is refusing proffered contracts
which foreign buyers are desirous of .mak
ing at the grain corporation price eveT,
these buyers being apparently anxious to
cover their requirements for some months in
advance. Apparently, their inability to -secure
supplies in other sources of wheat
ma feres them especially urgent in proposing
contracts with the United States, but these
contracts cannot be entered into until a
sufficient accumulation of wheat in the
hands of the grain corporation furnishes
assurance of reasonable prices to our own
The following bulletin was also Issued by
the local office:
"The United States grain corporation an
nounces an extension of time on the accept
ance of trade agreements from July 31 un
til August 20. Grain dealers, millers, flour
Jobbers, bakers, and terminal elevator oper
ators who have not yet signed thtir re
spective form of agreement may still secure
blank forms of agreement and have -them
accepted, provided they are signed and re

A strong: protest against the Kenyon
bill and similar bills pending in con
gress, which affect food products, has
been made by H. J. Dixon, a, wholesale
produce dealer of this city, who, has
sent the following letter to producers
and dealers in this section and also to
the Oregon delegation in congress;.-;
Ther is pending In congress several bins
seriously hostile to any firm, corporation or
individual engaged in tne ouytng, sewing r 1
shipping of dairy products, poultry, or poul
try products, and if those engaged in this
business do not awaken to the danger -f
these bills they will find their business oper
ations harnessed with a multitude of rules1
and regulations that will make their xecent
similar , experiences with the rules imposed '
by the food administration seem like a
pleasant dream in comparison.
The Kenyon bill, known as senate bill No.
2202, provides for the appointment by the
presldert of a commission of foodstuffs, at
an 'annual salary of $10,000. The commis--sioner's
duty shall be to administer and en
force the provisions of the bfll ..The bill
provides, among other things, that any per
son, firm or corporation engaged In the buy
ing, seMing or shipping of dairy products
r poultry products, whose business exceeas
$500,000 a year, shall secure' a license from
he secretary of agriculture; that every
icensee shall keep records and statements and
make reports or returns, under oath or
thcrwise, that will disclose all the transac
tions in his business; that any officer so
designated by the government may enter his
lace of business, inspect his books, letters.
papers or documents relating to his business.
That the commissioner of ioodsturts- may
investigate and ascertain the demand for.
supply of, consumption, costs "and prices of
dairy products, poultry and poultry, products.
If the commissioner believes that any
Icensee is violating any rules he may sum
mon said licensee to appear for -a bearing
before the secretary of agriculture, and if
the judgment of the secretary any rules
ave been violated, he shall suspend, ettner
temporarily or permanently, the license of
the violator, and that the commissioner may
apply for a receiver for licensee's business.
The Kendrick bill is practically along tne
same lines with the exception that it ex
empts no person, firm or corporation f row
avlng to secure a license and operate under
hat practically amounts to government -con
trol, excepting farmers.
The Owen blill, known as senate bill No.
S10, would create a $10.000,000 corporation
nd put the government into direct us mess
competition with you. ' - -
No dealer in the produce business win
onestly say that he believe that his busi
est or the commuiity In general would be
benefited in the least by a licensing system.
and all that goes with it tn the way of rules.
regulations and red tape reports, ana surely
no dealer wants a $100,000,000 corporation
backed by all the power, influences and re-
ources of the federal government for a di
The Kenyon hiu, however, is the most dan
gerous of these measures, as it not only
would provide for a licensing system and an
laboAate set of rules and regulations, wut
would go further and permit the secretary
f agriculture to throw you into the hands
of a receiver and operate you under govern
It is a mistaken Idea among some pro
duce dealers that the Kenyon bill and the
others are aimed particularly at the meat
packers. ' This is not a fact, as an ins pec
ion of any of the bills will disclose. They
virtually concern every person or firm who
deals in any way In butter, eggs and poul-
as well as livestock and meat. Certain
ntereats axe trying to make It appear that
he Kenyon bill. If passed, would prove
good thing for dealers in butter, eggs and
poultry, other than the' meat packers. The
act that the National Poultry, Butter and
Egg association, an organization of very
nearly loot) butter, egg, poultry and cheese
dealers In all. parts of the country, are bit'
erly fighting these billsi should conclusive!
prove that this is not a fact, and that the
bills. If passed, would be a serious detriment
to our trade tn general.
This is a fight affecting everybody in. our
line of business, and w should ntand to-
gether for mutual protection. You should not
only write Senators Chamberlain and Mc
Nary, and your representatives In congress
opposition to the Knyn biTl No. 22 oi
he Kendrick bill No. 2199 and the Owen bill
No. 810, but you should get others to do so.
with the passage of th bills a flood of
others similar in nature affecting the buying
aale and manufacturing or everything, to
use a popular expression. " "rom soup
nuts." will follow.
Get out and tight these bills now. It will
do no good to fight them after they are
passed, and if they are passed, you will be
ready to fight anything. Do not listen to
those who tell you that these bills affect
only certain ones. Remember, you can't
hurt anyons -in cur line of business without
hurt in j all engaged in It, Including yourself.
Write today, or better stilL wire your sen
ators and representatives In congress In op
position to thfse bins.
GRADING OF T.iHiS IS NECESSARY
Successful Market Depends on Buying on
Rigid Uniform Batds.
The . necessity of having uniform grades
mt eggs as a buying basis in this market
is pointed out by F. E. Howard, manvr
of the Mutual creamery, who wrties:
"At some time every egg Is fresh and If
sent to market promptly would bring the
producer its full worth. Othec large mar
kets grade and pay for eggs upon abasls

NEW YORK, Aug." 8. Tense labor con
