WHEAT PRCES N WEEK GO

FOR MAY SEEM PROMISING
(By Charter C. Browne, of OVerbecR
& Cooke Co.
The action of the wheat market
during the past "week haa proved quite
reassuring, if not entirely satisfactory
to holders. In line with our article
a week a so suggesting a stronger sit
uation arid further advance, the mark
ing up of pricea continued with little
Interruption, until more than 12c a
bushel bad been added to the price
of a week ago. At the outside range
of prices, aatention was directed to
the fact that exporters were not fol
lowing the advance with purohanes.
Bids for export were generally 6 to
Sc too low to catch the market, there
fore export sales dwindled to small
The domestic milling demand, which
feaa been, on the Increase of late,
was not so much in evidence toward
the close of the week, especially when
it was found that foreigners were not
competing for supplies on the extreme
advance. The speculative trade
found itself In an overbought condi
tion with the short interest in the
pit mostly eliminated by the rather
rapid advance, as expected a natural
reaction followed, cutting away about
7c of the recent advance. It is the
opinion of leading Interests that for
eigners will again be in the market
on any decline. Argentine offerings
are expected to enter into keener
competition with American wheat in
lorcign markets from now on.

It is believed that the surplus avail
able for export remaining uno!d in
tha U. S. la now reduced to a negli
gible few million bushels. Assuming
lhat this is correct. It does not follow
that wheat will neceaarily advance
to extreme heights. Foreign buyrrs
are likely to draw supplies from the
southern hemisphere. leaving the do-mf-slic
milling interests in this coun
try free from outntde competitive bid
ding, usually a feature of advancing
One of the outstanding feature? of
the wheat trade this season is the fa't
that May coontracts are selling at a
discount of to lc per bushel under
the nearby futures and even a great
er discount under cah wheat. Instead
of the usual three or five cent pre-!
mlum, or earning charge, on Kayj
wheat. Thia provides a rare oppor-j
tunity for farmers and others in thtsj
country -who are holding their wheat
for higher prices. j
As an example: Assuming the. stor.i

Tills simple oM-rr.tlon. Willi h is no
thing more or less th:in-s"oJ busi

to the owner of about 2Sc per bushel,

14, UUt) On 5U,UUU UUSIieiS. Willi:
farmers In this county are said tQ be
holding more than 50,000 bushels.
These amounts of money minght be
saved in each cr.se where wheat is
held to the end of May.
Itv is said that 30 to 40 per cent
of the crop of Umatilla county is be
ing held fot higher prices, approxi
mately 2,0"0,000 bushels, therefore
the charges on this amount of wheat
to the end of May would reach the
staggering total of $560,000.
There i not a bushel of wheal
produced in North America between
now and next May. Consumption and
exports are steadily reducing the S'Jp
ntv fMnnHinn wheat mar be barred.
There is every reason why May wheat
should (command a premium. io
carrying charges are involved in hold
ing May -wheat and it is a certainty
that wheat will not advance in the
inr,i Tvni-irrt r nnvwhert else with
out the leadership of May wheat in
Chicago. The cash realized on the
salo of spot wheat in this section will
go far toward the r-establisliment of
general prosperity locally. '
