The London merchants, under the American warehouse system, could store

length of time; and might if they chose withdraw them without payment of duty
and ship them to any other market.

There is no competition; the railroads fix the

They not only plunder the
farmer in the price, but they cheat in the measurement which fixes the
quality of the wheat.
Several years ago, #1 wheat was 90 cents a
bushel, #2 75 cents, and #3, 60 cents a bushel .
The wheat was so
graded by the buyers, that all wheat weighing 60 lbs. and over to the bushel
was rated #1 ; all wheat weighing 56 lbs. and over, #2; and all wheat weighing
52 lbs. and over #3.
If the wheat were measured in the good old
fashioned way in an honest half bushel measure, most of the wheat would weigh
60 lbs. to the bushel, and be rated as #1.
These monopolists cheat
systematically in the measure.
They use an oval gallon measure, easily
battered, by accident, to diminish its capacity.
Into such a small
measure the wheat will not pack close, when poured very gently out of a pitcher
They then weigh the gallon and multiply by 8 to find
the weight of a
By this system of measurement little of the wheat rates as
#1; and very much of it is rated as #3.
In this way, when #1 wheat was
selling at 90 cents a bushel, this system of measuring caused much of it to be
rated as #3, which brought only 60 cents a bushel .
When the wheat is
sold out of the elevators, where it was under pressure, all of it would weigh
