W.hy should the three bureuus affected be transferred and what advantages will result from tilhe change? These questions are plIrtinent and timely. FoIrtunately, the answer is slnmple. The three departments affected are the treasury departmnent, in which is the publlo health and marine-hospital service; the department' of commerce $ d labor, whihob loludeo the bureau of the census with Its division of Vital t stalltles, and the department of agli culture, with it bureau of chemistry.

Py w tquestions before the American ,, people have been more frequently In vestlgated than the question of prices and the related subject of the cost of living. The federal government has frequently looked into the matter di e rectly and Indirectly. Every investiga i tinn of the tariff lhns Involved this lquestion, and many investigatins which have had only an incidental re lation to the tariff have been made. Perhaps the safest and most depend able statistics bearing upon the sub. ject are those which have been col , lected from time to time by the United . States 3Bureau of Labor. 1While the activities of this bureau deal with all those matters which af feet labor, its studies of prices have Ibeen such as to bring out Information ]nowhere else to he found. The opera tlons of this bureau are kept out of politics, and, on the whole, its con clusions are, lperhaps, freer from par tsann bIas than those of any other in vestigating organisation that has ex Isted in the U'nlted States. Lest year it Issued a bulletin presenting the re stilts of its inquiries Into whtolesale lprices int the United Stnates covering the period from 1890 to 1910. A few years ago It made a widespread In quiry Into the relationship between wholesale and retail prices. It also has conducted investigations Into the cost of production of Iron, steel, tex tiles and glass. In 1903 and 1907 It made Inquiries Into the cost of living Snlld the retail prices of food. The method by which the bureau of labor makes its investigations Into re tail prli:es is an Interesting one. It lias selected retail stores sltuated In sections of the cities occullpied by labor ers anld imechanllls w'ho are supposed to lake froml $800 to $i.200 a year, s1 as to get the ilttlfli cost of living to the working classes. The agent is given the name of tile store from which the commodities were secured the pre vious year, tile IlsL of commodities and the prices each month of each one of the comllmodlties. lie then visits the same store and gets the price of those colmmoditles by the month from the books of the concern Itself. HIs fig ures are turned Into the bureau and before being used they are gone over carefully In the division of examina tion and criticism. Other reports, coming In from dif ferent agents in either the same ter ritory or nearby territory, are taken and compared with these. If, on the face of It, there seems to be any Irregular-. Ity in any report, It is sent back to the agent and lie is required to go back to the store and verify the fig ures. In one instance an agent of the bureau senlt In a report which, upon comparison with other reports from the sante neighl,brliold. Was found to be Incorrect. Thle agent was sent back and substantiated his figures. Later, he was called off and another agent sent out, who found that the first agent had taken the word of the store keeper, but had not gone to his books. The bureau has no power to require a merchant to produce his books; yet It has gone to them for some 20 years, and, in many cases, It has got Informa tlon the publlcation of which was un pleasant to the merchants. In 98 cases out of 100 Its lagents are given ] atess to the books of the merchant. If the agents are unable to get their In forialtion front the merchants they go to the patrons rand get their little gro cery store passbooks. lrom these they are able to get the actual written rec orlds of sales. They never take any figures which are not gathered froil actual written records. The bureau finds it much more dlf- ! filult to gather statistics of retail pr'ices than of wholesale prices. It the case of wholesale prices the articles are standarized and they can be fol lowed from year to year. In the case of retail prices there is frequently a great deal of substitutlon, especially in I the cheaper stores. The average house. wife's one desire is that there shall be steadllness of price. The slightest varlatlon upsets her calculations. A great many people buy butter at so much per pound thlroughout the year. The housewife will deal with a mans who agrees to sell her coffee and but ter at a certain price throughout the wlhole year. When prices are going up ( the retailer will let them go up a lit tie before he Increases his price, but If they drop down, he Is not likely to clhlnge It so quickly. If lie concludes it is up permanently, he will proh ably reduce tile grade of his articleh enough to make the difference. For I instance, a grocer declared to Commis- a sloner Neilll that he coutl reduce his I Ibee two grades on his class of culls tImtlrs and they would not know the c diffIerence. Likewise, he said he had I iZ grades of prunes, and that he could I reduce the grade two or three lhnes without ilis customers being aware I of It. The list of articles on which the bu- I reau of labor keeps its records of wlthonlesaleo prices embraces 257 com- I Inodltles, Included In nine different classes. T'hese classes embrace farml products, foods, clothes and clothing, fuel tand lighting, metal and Imple- s Thought for Today Calling in Washington. By Mr. Robert M. LaFollette. W~'hen Mr. .:La Follette came to con gross many years ago, everyone living on Capitol 1111,ill whether the 'wife of a supreme court Judge, senator, cabl net officer or representative in con gress kept Monday as her "day at home." I often thought, when going about Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thurs days, Fridays and Saturdays, covering the same ground each day, what a sav ing of nerve-racking study of the map and carriage hire it would ie if lo cality instead of official positioAl gov erned the choice of receiving days In Washington. "Hurely the good exam ple of Capitol Hill will some time pre. vails for other Washington neighbor hoods," I said to myself. When we returned, 20 years later, the custom fI4.i14ttlg.ed, but not as expected. Now, instead of &Jays calling at Capilot' Hll on Monda#,,ou must sometimes go on other days. Like so much of womens' work, calling in Washint69a ,iAt po0 ben stropliUe4,. ments, lumber and -building materials, drugs and chemicals, houllefurnishing lgoods and miscellaneous materials. The bureau of labor naver has at tempted to Investigate the causes of the rise and fall or ptides. Its aim has been simply to gIve the prices u they actually prevail, It dontiders that the causes are too comple , the rela tive influence of each cause too un certain and, In some eases, involving too many economic questions, to per mit their discussion in its reports. In an endeavor to suInumal l some of the factors in changing l ~$oes, it cites variations of harvets, changes in fashions, seasons, eta,, tax legislation, inspection and substitution. It finds that the advance In the price of beef is followed by an Inoreased consump tion in pork and mutton, which, in turn, Is likely to produce a higher price In these meats. Other factors are im provements In methods of production, cheapening of transportation, specula tive manipulation, panios, changing grade, over' production, usual demand, etc. The bureau of labor makes use of certain Index numbers to pxpress the rise and fall In market values. It takes the average of the decade between 1890 and 1900 as the basis of its com parisons. In its work it has a sys tem of what is known a "weight aver ages." It uses a large number of rep resentative staple articles and finds what the average advance on the sum of them Is. In some former investiga tions it took the various commodities entering into the consumption of the ordinary family and apportioned them acclrding to the amount of each comn modity 'onsumnled. The average ad vancE shown on such a basis was used as the index figures. The bureau of labor is now engaged in another investigation into the mat ter of the cost of living. The figures will cover retail prices and whole sale prices as ell. This investigation will be extensive and representative of On the Spur of the Moment By Roy K. Moulton. Like Mother Used to Do.

This commission gathered testimony and made a report which filled some 19 volumes, a set of books which would fill Dr. Eliot's five-foot book shelf. It was this investigation Which brought out such famous and off-quoted et pressions as that of Henry 0. Have meyer, who testified that "the protect ive tariff is the mother of trusts." The net result of the entire investigation, which cost many thousands of dollars, was that each side expressed its own views and left the Issue as much in doubt as ever. During 1910 a number of congressional committees investl gated various phases of the subject. A senate committee, of which Senator Lodge was chairman, investigated the matter. Its hearings filled four vol umes and led to two reports, one signed by the republicans and the other by democrats. Its conclusions were just as wide apart as the conclusions of the Industrigl odmmisaion and of every other partisan body which has investigated the subject. There never has been a thorough in vestigation into the relation of wages, salaries and earnings to the Increase In the cost of living. Neither has there been an investigation into the price to the producer, the wholesaler or jobber, the retaller' and the con oumer of any certain commodity at a definite time. Information is also .wnting on the cost of production as compared with the cost of distribution and sale of commodities and on the price of farm products at the farm, at wholesale trade centers and to the consumer.

Ira Ben r, alleged accomplices of Bert Conners in what was said to have been a plot to dynamite the county hall of records, were witnesses at COnners' trial today. They were called by the state, it having been desired to have them testify in regard to the height and weight, but the de Tense objected and was sustained by the court, so the two men Jointly in dicted with Conners and whose trials will follow his, were escorted back to jail soon after they entered court.
