LET THEM COHSPttE.
If the allies are conspiring to depress
the price of American wheat, we have
a right to hope that their machinations
may continue. ' With Umatilla county
wheat at around SO cents per bushel.
their schemes are surely not particu
larly malevolent. Growers wanting
more would likewise wsnt an entire
flock of automobiles.
Nevertheless, the views of Market
Editor Cohen of' the Oregon Journal
are interesting. . Here is what be ssys
in Sunday's paper:
It begins to look as if European
nations are trying to make good their
threats to purchase wheat in thla
country at their own price. Divers
methods of accomplishing this end
have been utilized, but success of the
movement ha been by no means
marked to date.
First of all plans to beat down the
price of wheat In this country was the
report sent broadcast that the Euro
pean crops were going to break all
records this season. This having
proven false and the price of wheat j
naturally stimulated thereby. It be-
hooved the press agents of the Euro
pean nations to try some other tack.
The probable opening of the Dar
danelles was one rumor that the Eng
lish government sent, afloat as a
means of depressing American grain
prices. Then it was cabled that the
Italian government had decided to
cut out speculation In. the wheat
market This, too, had an effect up
on the price.
Those Independent of the market
can see but one thing la the bearish
raid on wheat prices this week that
through the house of J. P. Morgan at
Co. the European Interests propose to
bully the American wheat growers
Into selling. By tying up with such a
