wheat producer In the Pacific northwest
to lose 2c a bushel oa every bushel of
wheat arown here, and as the crop was
around (0,000,000 bushels this year, they
stand to los somewnat more man
11,000,000 because the railroads were
too short-sighted to build a few cars to
taks care of the fast-growing traffic.
At this time the Portland grain mar
ket stands at 82e for club wheat. Buy
ers at prlmsry points are offering on a
basis of this for all the grain they can
purchase. Th rent market In thl city
st the present time is 84o a bushel, but
this Is only for spot delivery. If buyers

when they would be likely to- receive
cars for whest shipment they could pay

RIO DE JANEIRO TAXES
From Harper' Weekl.
To appreciate th situation a regard
outdoor advertising In Rio d Janeiro
and Braslllan cities generally. It 1
necessary to appreciate th tax . situa
tion in UCh municipalities, in general.
It mav be aald that anything which can
be made to produce a municipal revenue
la employed to mat ana. in nne wun
and supplemental to revenue-producing
fiosslb.lltles ther ar police and aanl
ary regulations of every sort For in
stance., the financial estimate of th
municipality of Rio d Janeiro for th
xurrunt mf Includes revenue from a
tax on salaries of officials, revision of
house numbers, . wsgon-welghing tax,
registration -of cows, domeatlo servant
tax, lax on unogcupieu duiiuui auoa,
official dispatch tax. domicile Chang
of commercial houses tax. fines for in
fractions of contracts, etc Among such
estimates are those for rent and li
censes of kiosk and advertlsejnent and
door-plat tax whloh concern outdoor
advertisings ; ; ,
Every sfgn In Rio de Janeiro 1 taxd.
A oafe having a peclal "sorvete," or
ice, to serve, make a placard and hang
It (o a door-post to on of th palm
trees in tubs which commonly decorate
uoh establishments. Th notice thus
posted must have a revenue stamp at
tached. Permanent signs are taxed on
a permanent basis; temporary signs on
a stamp basts. A sign "house for rent"
bears a revenue stamp. Under such cir
cumstances the tax on signboards or
billboards Is the expected thfng, but nat
urally there Is much less general uss
of such forms of advertising. A In
th cities of th United States, a va
cant corner on a frequented street Is
very likely to have som sort of a bill

The outdoor signs aa a rule are paint
ed signs, and in general it may be said
that they represent th best form of
poster or billboard advertising. Theo
retically, anyone can erect ouiuoor signs
subject to the approval of the prefect
or mayor of th municipality and pay
ing the tax, but practically, th erection
of such signs 1 almost altogether In
the control of a company which has

business much as a similar business Is

tions in parks, pleasure resorts, va

have been erected for the sale of light
drinks and similar goods. These struc
tures are taken advantage of for out

the kiosk privilege carries with It the
advertising privilege. There are also
on ths street and avenue small mov
able kiosks, often of so light a con
struction that the vender carries It
