WHEAT PRICE AT
Telegram Received at Port

Portland, Or., June 28 The nation
al food administration intends to main
tain the present price of $2.20 on wheat
at Pacific ports, but may increase the
price of wheat at Now York "some
ten to twelve cents a bushel," it was
announced here today at the office' of
the Oregon food administration.
This information came to the Ore
gon administration in a telegram from
tho food administration at Washing
ton. The telegram stated:
"it U understood that tho shipping
board finds ithat the rate of $3.50 per
ton upon wheat from Pacific coast
Krts to the Atlantic has proved to
work out ait a lo, and that the board
ill find it necessary to advance the
raite. The matter is still under consid
eration. furthermore, the lmurance rates
on both fhipg and cargo have been trc
hnertilously advanced, and the insur
ance ra e on wncmt proiiufits have in
creased by virtue of submarine activi
ties on the Atlantic seaboard, further
increasing i;he -o.t of the sea haul
from Pacific northwest ports to Atlan
"The net result is that it may cost
as much as 13 cents a bushel more to
transport wheat from Paific norths
west ports to Atlantif ports than has
been contemplated. In the meantime,
the advance in railway rates may in
crease the pri"e cf wheat in Xew York
from ten to 12 cents a bushel.
"The fooi administration Sntends
to maintain the $2.20 price at Pacific
lertg despite the increased cost of sea
"The in rencd price of wheat at
New York, owing to increased railway
rates, will more or less effect the in
creased ?a haulage cost."
