I*HB Critical Study of the Great Rise In Prices and the Causes WhichHave Brought It About and Aldrich have not been accused of it yet but the trusts have been, and that is much the same thing. Vegetarians and Leather. One genius has arrived at the re markable conclusion that the advanc ed price of shoes, for example, is due to the vegetarians. Owing to the agi tation against meat eating fewer beeves have been killed. Thus the sup ply of hides has decreased, and leath er has advanced. That logic is ab solutely -hole proof, like the socks we buy with coupons attached. We knew the vegetarians would do some thing horrible, and now they have done it. They ought to be made to go barefoot, like victims of one of these new cure cults who bathe their bare tootsies in the morning dew. If the vegetarians will not eat the carcass of the cow they should not be allowed to wear her tanned skin. In principle it is just as bad to kill the poor beast for her hide as it is for her beef. To be consistent the vegetarians ought to wear wooden shoes or moccasins wov en from grass. Nobody but an unfeel ing brute and barbarian would take life in order that he might deck his feet with the pelt of the victim. Yet I have never heard that vegetarians object to wearing shoes. Why this discrimination between the inside of the carcass and the outside? What marvelous explanations* are of fered for high prices by those who ei ther do not see the true cause or want to conceal it! Take this vegetarian thing, for example, which has been ad vanced seriously by*a business man of repute. If he is correct in stating that the demand for beef has fallen off because of the anti-meat eaters, why has not the price of beef gone down? As a matter of fact, meat prices have been radically advanced. It was the complaint against dear beef that had much to do with starting the i-whole agitation against high prices. THE INCREASED COSTOFUVflIC JAMES A EDGERTON. THBy E inquiry into the cause of high prices is something like the question of "Who killed cock robin?" Nobody knows for sure, but everybody has his suspicions. Sen ators Clapp and Money say the tariff is responsible. Senator Bristow, Rep resentative Kahn and Dr. John Wes ley Hill assert it is the trusts. Sena tors Bourne, Dick and Crawford, Rep resentative Scott, Economic Expert Byron W. Holt, President Taft and Professors James B. Clarke and Davis R. Dewey opine that it is the influx of gold, the consequent depreciation of money and a higher standard of liv ing. Secretary of Agriculture Wilson, Senator Dolliver and Representative Livingston of Georgia say that too great congestion in cities and the cor ollary of too few people farming have scooted prices upward. Professor J. R. Kennedy of the Illinois university believes that the high price of land does the trick. Others are sure it is the scarcity of farm labor. There are almost as many opinions as there are people expressing fhem. All these views are interesting, but what good are they to the ultimate consumer, who has to dig up the price? Perhaps the most fearful and won derful cause assigned to dear grocer ies and meats is the labor union. Somebody, who shall be nameless, says that the trades organization is responsible for the whole thing. Next he will be charging it to the weather department, the insurgents or Dr. Cook. Others will say that high prices are caused by peekaboo waists or holes in cheese. So far as I know, Cannon PROMINENT MEN INTERESTED IN THE INVESTIGATION OP THE HIGHER COST OF LIVING. pia tt"tt'rtw xrxToisr^nr^KSDA^, Formation of Trustsa Strong FactorHow Congress Will Investigate the Question Thus there is a flaw in the argument somewhere. If the price of hides has gone up because the supply has de creased, why should not the price of meat have gone down when the de mand decreased? In other words, the argument that decreased consump tion of meat has produced higher prices of leather because it cut off the supply is refuted by the fact that it has not caused lower prices of meat, although it cut off the demand. I have taken trouble to show fallacy of this because it is so plausible and because it is on a par with a lot of other fan tastic explanations of high prices. "Why Mot Accuse the Weather? As an instance, several people who ought to know better have claimed that lack of scientific methods in farm ing is responsible for the advance in prices, when, as a matter of fact, there was never so much scientific farming as today. Another claims that labor unions are responsible, when every real student of the question knows that prices have advanced much fast er than wages. There is something more in the claim of a lack of farm ers and scarcity of farm labor, and yet the improvement in agricultural machinery has supplied this defect in great degree. With modern tools one man can do as much on the farm as two or three used to do. Moreover, Secretary Wilson's crop report shows each year's acreage and yield larger than those of the year before. There is undoubtedly congestion in the cities, and this would produce increased con sumption, yet taken alone it would not account for the radical boosting of prices witnessed in the last year or two. There remain among possible causes for the condition only two worthy of mention, the influx of gold and the trusts. Now, if we deal with cold facts and not with efforts to bolster up some pet theory we shall find that the tales of the fabulous production of gold have been much exaggerated. It would almost seem that it has been done for a purpose by somebody who wants to throw dust in the eyes of the people. Where is all this increased amount of gold? Is it in the pockets of the people? Have you seen it? Is it in the vaults of the United States treasury? Is it in the banks? Where is it? Does it not exist chiefly in the imaginations of certain statisticians who are trying to make a case? Where is all this gold produced? In Alaska? All the gold taken out of Alaska is but a flyspeck compared to the world's word for the marvelous and stagger Ing increase in the output of gold. as a matter of fact, it is universally admitted that it has not affected wages. Before coming to Ihe last cause, the food trusts, a word about the tariff, which I had well nigh over looked. I take it that the American people want the truth of the matter and are not particularly interested in partisan claims one way or the other. Well, the truth is that there has been an advance in prices in Europe as well as America, though not to the same extent. Part of Europe is free trade. It is also true that here at home arti cles on the free list have been affected by the rise as well as those that are protected. Hides were conspicuous for having been taken off the dutiable list at the direct intervention of the presi- commerce. So far as I can determine, inquiry by Secretary Wilson would most of the people who claim that the I JAISXTABY dent, yet there was recently decreed a sharp advance In the price of shoes. I do not claim -that some of these factors may riot enter intothe problem as at least contributory causes to the. increased cost of living. I only insist that they are not the chief causes and that all of them taken together could not produce the untfsual condition by which we are confronted. A study of the situation forces one to the conclu sion that our high prices are artificial, that they were not produced by nat ural causes and that some unusual fac tor has entered in. There are many proofs that these high prices are arti ficial, of which three may be men tioned. One is that during the panic of 1907 the price level kept up, theschool first time in history that such a condi tion prevailed during a panic. Anoth er fact is that the laws of supply and demand seem to have been set aside. However bountiful the harvests may have been, prices continued to climb. The third proof is that during all this phenomenal rise in food and farm products the farmer has been but lit tle benefited. Actual investigations in the state of Michigan disclosed the fact that, while potatoes were selling for 30 cents a bushel in rural districts, the farmers receiving but 23 cents, the same grades of potatoes were re tailing for from 70 to 75 cents per bushel in Detroit, although it was but a few score of miles distant and the transportation charges were not more than 7 to 9 cents a bushel. Like con ditions were found in other lines. I confidently predict that a like investi gation in any large city of the Union when compared with the country one or two hundred miles away would show similar contrasts. Who gets all this enormous margin between what the farmer receives and what the ulti mate consumer pays? The Eat In the Meal Tub. What is the unusual factor in the situation? There has always been more or less tariff, there has always been a certain amount of luxury, there have always been some lax methods in farming, and to offset whatever in creased production in gold is actually found to exist it must be remembered that silver has been demonetized as ultimate money of redemption. These other factors have been present and are not radically different from what they were before. For this unusual rise in prices there must be some un usual cause. What is it? What is the new factor? There is but one answer possible the trusts. Prices are no longer ruled by the natural laws of competition. They are arbitrarily fixed by combina tions. There is a monopoly in enough of the chief articles of commerce to govern the entire price level. What ever minor causes operate to produce high prices, and they are many, these combinations in restraint of trade are the chief cause. Here is a quotation from Congressman Julius Kahn of California which is so pat that I can not forbear quoting it. Being asked to what he attributed this increase in cost, Mr. Kahn said: I attribute It first of all to the forma tion of trusts that control these things Take the item of fish. In the past, when there was an abundance of fish in the Pacific coast markets, the price went down. No when the market is glutted the dealers simply send the surplus to a fertilizing establishment, where it is con verted into a lertilizer, and that amount of the stuff as an article of food is with drawn from consumption. This creates a fictitious shortage, and the price is kept up. The same thing is true of fruits. Fruits ought to be cheap in California, but the price is kept up when there is an unusually big crop through the practice of destroying that which falls, putting it in cold storage or otherwise keeping it out of the local markets, so that the sup ply is reduced The natural law of supply and demand is distorted, and the people suffer accordingly. Congress Wants to Know. There is to be an investigation of high prices, possibly two or three of them. Senator Stephen B. Elkins of West Virginia has put in a resolution to appoint a committee of five senators to inquire into the subject, Senator Coe Crawford of South Dakota has inPills troduced another resolution which em powers the secretary of commerce and labor to conduct the investigation, while one or two similar measures have gone into the house. President Taft favors an inquiry, and Secretary of Agriculture Wilson is already mak ing one. As to what will come from all these probefests it is hard to say. Congressional investigations are some times fearful and wonderful things. I recall one of a score of years ago into the railway mail graft that was a shame and an outrage on the coun try, as subsequent disclosures have proved. As a general thing inquiries by congress are probably fairly hon est and thorough, yet I would have my doubts about one where the com bined trusts are concerned. And I think these doubts would be shared by nine out ofpnbli ten meconfidence. mor nav Influx of gold is the cause of high While all these investigations and prices are taking somebody else's threatenedon, ar a Moreover, if this were the real cause cording to whether the people take it It would affect all values alike, when, *a 20,1910. in the country.

Where Human Life Is Cheapest Although he may never formulate it in words, the average American cherishes an unalterable belief that, whatever may befall other folks, the angels will always take care of him. Being thus relieved of all responsi bility for his own welfare, he lacks a personal motive for doing his share toward promoting the public safety. Since what is everybody's business is nobody's business, the rivers continue to be turned into sewers, the lakes into cess pools to poison whole cities at a time, while the reckless auto, the overcrowded boat, the unguarded machine, the gas filled mine, and the "forgotten train order, "reap on at their dreadful pace.
