Excerpt from The Investors' Review, Vol. 41: January 5, 1918
The Government has taken over the control of all dealings in these articles; it has sent out a Commission to Greece and a Commission to Spain for currants and raisins respectively. These Commissioners have been gone... some weeks, and from the latest information little or nothing of the new crops has been shipped to date. This time last year there were about tons of Greek currants here and a¿oat and about tons' of Spanish raisins. If the Government action has been taken with a view of obtaining supplies for our markets of a useful food, the comparison is not a very good one; if, on the other hand, the object of all these steps has been to cut off supplies, they have made quite a complete success.
In a footnote it is stated that several months ago importing houses who were making contracts, and would have brought in supplies in proper time, were notified that they must not do so.
