TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —We notice a paragraph in your paper last evening in which it was stated that there was a possibility of a bread famine in Dunedin. This is really a serious state of affairs, and one which certainly deserves serious consideration. The cost of living at the present time is exceedingly high, and wo think that all those who can possibly help to cheapen the cost of living and relievo the burden on the community are, from a business point of view, doing only what is right and proper. It is rumored that shortly after the commencement of the war all the available supplies of wheat and oats were bought up, and that they are now held in slock, tho holders refusing to sell until prices go higher. This information is from what we consider to- Le a reliable source, and, if on investigation it proves to ha true, then we think that the Government will be failing in their duty to the people of this country if they fail to take >:k H action as tho circumstances demand. To-day wo have been’applied to to supply flour, but we cannot secure supplies from any of the mills in the City, the millers stating that they cannot aecure supplies of wheat. Now, then, holders of wheat, beware!— We are, etc.,, Gill, akd Co. November 25.
