Meeting Held at
Asked By Jefferson County Members of A. S.
At a committee meeting held in
the music room of the Seelbach
Thursday afternoon, eight members
of the St. Matthews and Springdale
lodges of the American Society of
Equity, representing the farmers of
the Eastern part of Jefferson county
within a radius of fifteen miles, de
cided that the farmers will hold their
wheat until they can sell it for at
least $1 per bushel, net. The millers
also have decided that they have
offered all that is possible under the
circumstances they can.
W. H. Stutzenberger, chairman of
the committee, stated that the pur
pose of the meeting was to open the
bids that had been sent in by differ
ent millers of the city and if they
were not satisfactory to arrange a
uniform price to be charged to the
local millers for grain delivered. It
was stated that they had been offered
less than one dollar for their wheat,
when the millers pay the market
in Chicago, St. Louis and other large
cities more than they have offered
here, and that the prices are made
for grain delivered on board cars at
