Washington, Dec. 8. A solution of
the high cost of living problem is of
fered in the annual report of Secretary
of Agriculture Wilson, made public
today. Secretary Wilson says it is the mid
dleman who is responsible for high
prices, and he adduces figures to sup
port his claim. Elimination of the
middleman, he adds, by means of farm
ers" cooperative selling organization
and consumers' cooperative buying as
sociations working in harmony will not
only reduce prices the consumer has
to pay. but increase farmers' profits
and equalize prices all over the coun
try so that producers everywhere will
get a fair share of profit.

151,000,000: sugar cane, $28,000,000:
tobacco, $I5,000.000; rice, $16,000,000.
An investigation of the distribution
of this crop shows who gets the profits.
Experts from the department of agri
culture made a study of distribution in
7S American cities. They found that
of the toal price paid by consumers to
retailers the farmer, who assumed the
risk and performed the toil of produc
tion, got 50 per cent, the railroads
about 7 per cent, and the middlemen
the rest, or about per cent.

The risk assumed by the middlemen,
the report points out. is not nearly so
great as that of the farmer hardly
more than that of the railroad, in fact
and the labor entailed in retailing
will not compare with the labor of pro
ducing. The following table shows the farm
