Mr. McMASTER:

In the case of the farmer who brings his wheat to the elevator, and who is not able to agree with the elevator man as to the grade, and takes a "subject to grade" ticket, does he have anything to say as to the quality of the grain with which his grain is mixed?

Mr. McMASTER:

If they have put their

money into the enterprise and taken the risk of it being destroyed by the fire, they have the rights that are inherent in private property. There are no people in the world who are more likely in the long run to suffer than farmers of the country by interference with the rights of private property.

Mr. McMASTER:

-just as the farmer has the right to say how he wishes his grain to be transhipped. It does not seem right that you should say to a man who owns a piece of private property, "You have got to take my property, you have got to charge a certain amount on it, and you have got to send it just as I widh you to." Surely there must be some room for the preservation of the rights of the elevator owner as well as the rights of the farmer.
