BELLOWS. —The Waukon page of the AUamn- ken Journal makes the following "kick" against the Waukon grain buyers and practically serves notice on the farmers to coine • to PostTillo or sdme titer town if they want fo get what their produce is wortbv We. hare had no com petition here in the grain market for years, and y«t we beliure Mr.' Roberts has paid every cent the market would warrant. At all events he has rawn grain from tho natural territory < of other towns every year. We say to all farmers, if you want all your pro-' duco is worth, and good weight and good treatment, come to Postville. And while you aro here our merchants can and will double discount tho prices at any surrounding towns, and their stocks are much larger and bettor than you can find elsewhere in tho county. We invito you to Postville both to sell and to buy: The farmers are making tho same kick on the Waukon grain market this year that thoy did last, and our business meu aro losing lots of trade in consequence. Farmers west and south are going to Postvillo and Deeorah. and those living north and east go to New Albin and Lansing, saying that they get from tlitio to live cents per bushel more for their grain at nither of those points. When they market there, thoro is no doubt but tbsy do considerable trading also. The fact of the matter is there is virtually no competition n the Waukon grain market and if our Business Men's Association is not ntir°ly dofuuet, this would be a good thing for them to look into. If such a state of affairs continues mnoh longer our business men will have to go into the grain buying business themselves in self defense. W» write thin at the request of a number of farmers, and in the Interest of Wankon's businojs men We oxpeut it will be denied as a slrail- iar statement was last year, bnt this does no good, and only continues tho abuse. Our business men know aud feel that it is so, an 1 among the farmers it is common talk. There is no veason why Waukon buyers can't pay the same price for grain as is paid in neighboring towns and tho only way t rectify the abuse is to give it such wide publicity that the buyers will be forced to pay the market prico, or some on else induced to come in and do so." ,ffiTABLlS§Ei) 1833, Our I'all np^t AVliit^i: Stftck.is n<fW flnily arriving.
