THE SHORTAGE OF WHEAT.
TO TIUS EDITOR.
Sir, —It is to be hoped that your article on the above subject will stir up the public to take immediate action’ to demand the release of tho wheat and flour stored up by the “ patriots ” of the Dominion. Now thife act of “ patriotism ” is not confined to the farmers only, as I have undisputablo proof that at least one firm in the Dominion have for some time held large stocks of each, and refuse' to part with it to thoir customers. Is it not time that the Government stepped in and took possession of all available stocks of breadstuffs at once? There haa been a lot of controversy of lato on the subject of arresting all Germans in New Zealand, but are not these psuodo “patriots” a greater menace to our welfare than tho few Germans at liberty in this country—l am, etc., ‘ N.E.V. November SO.
