MIGHTY EASY TO EXPLAIN
The Portland Telegram re
cently commented on tne pres
ent cost of living and said it
would like to know the. cause
for such a marked advance in
the price of all food supplies.
The Oregonian answers the
q.:ery in the following pertinent
"It's mighty easy to explain
why the cost of living is high.
No mystery at all about it. (Sta
ple articles for the household,
especially of food, are scarce.
Men and women and boys and
girls don't like to work on the
farm. Thev are averse to the
labor, or kind of labor, necessary
for the production of wheat and
potatoes, cabbage and beans; the
care of kine, attention to calves,
lambs and poultry; .protection
of fruit trees and selection and
. preparation of product for mar
Ket. lney preier to live in
towns and cities all .who pos
siblycan even on small salaries
and to complain that flour, beef
and mutton, butter, eggs potatoes
are outrageously high. .
"From this basis all prices are
forced upwards. Household
furniture, for example, bears
much higher prices than a few
years ago. Lumber, wood and
bricks are higher. Wages of all
workmen have advanced
' though not in all occupations to
the proportion of the advance in
articles of food." Wages in'i the
lighter employments, indoors,
are perhaps but little higher.
The heavier part of the burden
of higher prices seems to -fall on
these. But these'people still
don't want to live in the country
and more cous- mers. Upon an
endless list of articles of food
consumed in our western citiei
we-pay not only tne price in
Iowa and Missouri, but ' the
freight charge and the profits of
a ; whole line of dealers.- No
mystery about these prices, nor
about the prices of all the var
ious articles . of manufacture
from distant places,, including
even a large part of our building
materials and nearly all our
clothing. Yet after all, many
think we are more generally
r.rosperous with high than with
low prices; and there an argu
ment on either side. ,

has filed an answar in its suit
with the railroad commission.
Some time ago the commission
ordered the company to contract
a depot at the town of Lyons,
on the C. & E., on the complaint
of the citizens of that place, but
the railroad company failed to
comply with the order and the
matter was taken before the cir
cuit court. The an swer says the
courts have no jurisdicion to
compel them to erect a depot as
I asked by the commission.
