WHY WE PAY
The indictment and prosecution of pioiiteers andl(] gougers In var.ious sec
tions of the country comes as a ray of hope to a people groning under bur
den of exorbitant prices for everything we eat, wear or use.
It is not the retailer who is feeling the weight of the law, as his prices a;
a rule are quite within the bounds of reason-at least in the country towns
and rural distriets. The gougers who are being hit are generally middlemen
or wholesalers, who have been juggling the products back and forth, with a
price boost at every juggle. Normally, the law of supply and demand re
gulates the price of a commodity. But it has not been so since the beginn
ing of the war, because times have not been normal.
One of the principal reasons for existing high prices is the fact that a
-comminoti ity passes through tooiany hanits hefore it reaches the consumer,
and moAt of those hands are experts at t he pleasing and lurative occupation
ef gouging. If public oficials had taken a fi "m stand as sbon as the goug
ing commenced--if they had filled the .iails when the evil was in its infancy
pro-I "r'n would never have reached the gigantic proportions which now
stagyger the counti y. But they didn't. and because of their laxity we are pay
ing the penalty today. Eveh at this late day, if our public oflicias can be
brought, as a body to a realization of their duty-if they can be prodded into
an t iergetic performance of that duty-we may some day expect the law of
:4up'ly and demand to again regulate the price of the food we eat and the
other necessities we require in our daily life. We begrudge no man a do"lla
->r a inillion that is made honestly, but that which is accumulated by dishone2st
11 a'ir practices should aind its posse(ssor mt) prison.
FOOLS IN A DAY
asyou ever heen in Waslhin-t~m. r in our staite capitol, or in any otiher
