j. p. burrus of mckinney gives
out interview concern.
McKinney, Texas, Oct. 13.—J. Perry
Burrus of this city, prominent Texas
miller and authority on wheat pro-
duction, has given the following inter-
view on the future of the grain market
insofar as it relates to the farmer:
“There seems to be considerable un-
certainty among the farmers as to
whether they should sow a normal or
a small crop of wheat within the next
thirty days. That the acreage is go-
ing to be greatly reduced is certain,
for the reason that there has been so
much moisture and vegetation. The
land has not been broken, and, as a
consequence, conditions now point to
a short crop of wheat for 1919-20.
“Another thing that is retarding the
sowing of wheat is the fact that the
guaranteed price will be taken off on
the first day of June, 1920, and the
farmers will then depend upon the
price as determined by the supply and
demand of the world’s market. The
crop now being threshed promised in
the early part of the season, and the
government forecasted 1,250,000,000
bushels, but to excessive rainfall and
other factors, this crop has now been
cut down to approximately 900,000,000
bushels. This wheat, generally speak-
ing, is of inferior quality, and it re-

Washington, Oct. 13.—Some official
action either by President or his cabi-
net, to avert the threatened strike of
soft coat miners November 1 is ex-
pected. It was said at the White
House that officials regard the matter
as one requiring governmental action
if other efforts to avert the tie-up by
the coal miners fails.

Paris, Oct. 13.—Decrees published in
the official journal today place the in-

basis, thus ending the state of siege

jurisdiction over police affairs from
the army to the prefectures.
Louisville, Ky„ Oct. 13.—Common
law Is to be invoked In Kentucky
against profiteers and price gougers,
according, to instructions being pre-
pared by Attorney General Morris’
office for distribtuion to every circuit
udge and commonwealth’s attorney
in the state. Grand jury investigation
of mgny profiteering cases apparently
will result. ,, . .
Common law covering profiteering
holds that a dealer has a specific ser-
vice In getting various products to the
consumer and is entitled to a reason-
able compensation for service alone,
without regard to profit. The instruc-
tions of the attorney general’s office
recite that many city charters give
power to fix prices and that persons
monopolizing foodstuffs are open to
indictment regardless of intent.
Three offenses are recognized by
common law In connection with food
profiteering—first, forestalling the
market by buying goods before a mar-
ket is reached or preventing goods
from reaching a market, second, re-
grading products by buying and sell-
ing on the same market merely to add
to the price of the consumer, and third
depleting the market by hoarding.
