SYDNEY, May "2
The "Sun" charges the Government of New South Wales with attempting to coerce millers to make flour from tainted wheat. This wheat, tlie paper states, was part of the 1916-17 crop which the British Government rejected. It was damaged by weather and contaminated by dead mice and other vermin. It was unfit for human consumption, and might have caused the disease known as rope plague. The "Sun" adds that some millers refused this wheat, demanding clean grain, of which a plentiful supply was available.
