The Federal Warehouse Act which
provides for the licensing and inspec
tion of public warehouses by Govern
ment officials protects farmers from
losses due to unsound or fraudulent
warehouse receipts, says the United
States Department of Agriculture.
The law applies to warehouses for
the storage of cotton, grain, wool, to
bacco, etc,
"In almost every state where ag
ricultural products are placed in pub
lic storage," the department says,
"losses sometimes totaling millions
have been reported. During the past
season, losses sustained in two States
by farmers who placed their grain in
storage in public warehouses were
exceedingly heavy, being estimated
at more than $200,000,"
"A typical instance of loss Is that
of a grain farmer who stored his
year's crop with a warehouseman. He
received a receipt which he sold to a
grain dealer. When the dealer pre
sented the receipt and called for de
livery of the grain the warehouse
was empty. The dealer fell back on
the farmer from whom be bought
the receipt. The warehouseman was
prosecuted, but that did not pay the
farmer for his grain.
"A review of the storage losses of
the past ten years," says the depart
ment, "shows that in practically all
cases the losses would never have oc
curred, if the warehouseman had
been operating under the United
States warehouse act.
"Application for license under the
law must be made to the Secretary
of Agriculture, Washington, D. C.
The warehouse and the operator are
investigated, and the warehouseman
is required to file a bond before a
license is granted. After licensing,
the warehouse and its accounts are
inspected periodically to show wheth
er the requirements of the act are be
ing met, especially to make certain
that the products covered by receipts
are actually in the warehouse.
The law is not compulsory, and ap
plications must come voluntarily
from warehousemen.
