While the controversial fires rage over the problem of the causes of the coot of living, many remedies for the cnditlion are proposed. Among the first of these Is a reduction of the ad mlttedly large expense of distribution of the products whlcdh go to make up the items hlech cost the consumer money. The system of distribution has become such that there are a nusn her of d'stinct castes in the fabric of enmmnerclal operations. The consum or musit patronize the retailer. It is imporslbfe for him to induce the wholesaler to sell directly to him. If the consumer goes to a wholesale store and tries to buy goods at whole sale prices, he Is met with the answer that they can he sold to retail deal ers only. It is not a questions of quantity which determines whether the buyer shall he entitled to the privilege of purclhnling at wholesale. There are many eases on record where the enn snmer has approached the wholesaler, willing to buy even a larger quantity than many a retailer buys, yet, with out exception, the consumer Is in formed that unless he is a retail deal er, he cannot get the advantage of wholesale prices. This refusal to sell directly to the consumer, on the part of the thole crler, is made without respect to per sons. Even a TUnited States senator, going to a. wholesale dealer in the city of WV'hhington nnd trying to buy his provisions at wholesanl prices, is met with a prompt refusal, as Senator mrnot of I'tnh can hear witness. Last' yeanr he decided that he would over come snme of the high, cost of living in Washington by going to the whole a!uer for his commodities. Hle was informed thnt there was an ironclad rule against the wholesaler selling di rect to the consumer. Another instance of the same s'tuatl tion occurred to a prominent Wash ington correspondent. He has a con sildrable family, and decided that he would endeavor to buy his household supplleant wholesale. Hle went to oneof the lending grocers of the city, who dleo both a wholesale and retail husI ness, and asked to huy a large num ber of candles. lie informed the clerk that he wanted to ".t a sufficilent quantity to entitle hhim to wholesale qutatilons. This clerk referred the matter to one of his superiors, who stated that he would be willing to sell the candles at 35 cents a pound whole sale. The correspondent had been paying 40 cents at retail In small quantities. He was not willing to buy a large amount at such a small reduc tion, so he decided to go directly to the Ptandard Oil company. Here he was given a price of 22 cents a pound on the cnndh-s which would have cost him 40 cents at retail. Of all of his attempts to buy at wholesale--at. tnmps which carried him, by corres pondence. to 'wholesale dealers in many cities-this was the only one in which he was successful in gettitg wholesale prices on goods for his own consumption. Almost without excep tioa he was referred to his nearest dealer handling these goods and In formed that he could buy them there. Thousands of instances of this kind might he cited, to show the tautly. drawn. lilc beyond which the con lumeur may not gon. For instance, if a, farmer desires to buy a certain brand ,f fertilizer and writes directly to the fatciry, It mlakes Iln a price exactly' the rsaIIms. ls that whlich would lie unllde by its agenlt In the territory In vwhclh the farmer resides. If it sells; directly to him, the agent gets his ,onlsnlsssn jn lust as much as if he had been tile instrumentality through which the sale was made. On all satented and advertised articles this procedure, or something similar to it, Is puirsued. Thie wholeanler annoulnces that he is powerless in the matter. He says that if he sells directly to tile con sumer, the retailers refuse to buy from himn, sIIls his business in injured as a result. The retailers have organiza lions which prnctically blacklist wholesalers 'who attempt to bridge the lgap Ietween themo and the consumers. But the retailer is up against the same diffhlculty when he attempts to wipe out the wholesaler and buy dl rect from the johher. A prominent merchant of the city of Washlngton, one whose store Is daily filled with the market baskets of the elite of Washington, and who huys many of his suppl)lhs hv the carload, has fro q!uently attempted to buy direct from the manufacturer instead of patroniz ing the wholesaler. In many cases his orders are larger than those of small wholesalers, yet le himself declares that he has been as consistently turned down as the consusmers are turned down by the wholesalers. Whether there is any legal remedy against this sort of procedlure i nla quee tion. It i a system of dlsirlhtlion thatt has existed for so many yenar thsat many feel 411o courts would not holl it a comlllination In restraint of Thought for Today Living Wage. By Mrs. Robert M. LaFollette. When Governor l.'ots selected a corm misnlon to investigato and report as to the advisability of the establishment of minlnhum wuge boards in 11tMasa chusetta, hlie very appropriately a)p pointed 1)5 tile womainl relpresenlltitve Mrs. G(lendower Ivans, who Is one of the best posted womenl in theli country on wage ealrnersn nd the conditions under whichl they work. A woman of Indepllolelnt means, she was one of the first to recognize the responlllbility of weaulth to look to how dividelnds are earned, as well la how they are spent. Her sympathy with working people led her to take prominenlllllt part In the Itoxbury carpet strike. It is a thrill ing plcture, tills ioston gentlewoman, standingl shoulder to sipuld'w with the factory girls, protecting them from intimidation, insisting on the funda mental principles of liberty,-her ex ample has been a strong inzluenclln opening up a new world of mutual fellowshlp and democoracy WOmJIen. "' '':i 'J ac·~u trade. Yet thesl av'e been eaml where such l@Q ftions have been broken up. B*P the early '90, a combinatlon Wa ited by manatifta turers of funeral mplles and the tu noral directors. The association .f manufacturers wasl:known as the Na tional Burial CeYit asociation, and in each state the"ts an assOecation of funeral direltcWt Many of thea asmenlationse nter. into agreement. with the Natlonal lrifal ('ase amsO elation, providlng that the latter as soclatlon would .e11 funeral supplle: only to such funeral directors nas wer members of the A0I&ral directors' aA noc.ltion. In one ,itltance a house in ailtimore which t'ne a. member of the National Bural Cpse association, had been patronilsed for years by a Vir giniAn firm of unldMtakers. uTpnn the receipt of an order 'ob goods from this firm it was advised, that in the fu ture It could sell only to those who were members of the Tuneral DI rectors' Assoclation of Virginia. At tempts on the part of the firm to huv e.lsewhere led to samllr replies and nadvice to the firm to join the Puneral Directors' Aseocisetbin of Virginia. This assoclation proved to he a close corporation and only a. few under takers could let into it. At thls Juncture the undertakers decided to carry the case to the federal courts tinder the Rherman antl-trnust law. A like procedure had been followed In Kansas and the a'eloCntion, fenrful or the penaltv of the law. entirely re s-inded this restriettve agreement. The Virginia assoclation likewise did so and from that day to this no at tempted monopoly of hburial supplies has ever been made In the TTnited Ptntes. The. wiping out of many middle men's profits and the bringing of .producer and consumer In closer con tnct is believed by many to he' one of the most effective remedies that could be applled. Not only in Aurora, Ill.. but in T)eatu,' Joliet, Rockford, and In Routh Pend. Ind., public mar kets have been establisalrd during the past summer. Here the prodiucer and the consumer may meet. It has been demonstrated that a, great sanving h, heen effected. Baltimore has long followed out this Idea, and the cost of living is lower. perhaps in Tlaltimor. than in any large city In the United Ptntes. In one bhi market alone 600 wagons are accommodated with curb space. and this Is only one of 11 large markets distributed over the city. Atl though charges to the farmer are in significant, the total returns pay a.t the expenses of maletninnlng markets and give the city llanndsnme interest an the million nd a i quarter dollars it had invested in them. RBatimore established Its first mar ket of this kind in 17'i. It raised the ,money for It by holding a lottery. The lexington market is said to he one of the largest in the world, and it takes canre of 50.064 marketers ev ery day. It is, in testilty. the old vil'nge market sa'stem eatanded to metropolitan proportions, and perhaps more people go to market in Baltimore than in nny other city in the coun try. The .00 farmers' wagonn con tain only a very small portion of the food supply, and yet they practically regi'late food priroe In Baltimore. Another remedy prnyosed is the elimination of fal s weights and meas uire., and the rmetirement that all paknage goods slhall have the true weight of their contents printed on them. It has been estimated hy the sealer of weights nnd measures for the District of r'nlatmbia--and it Is probable thn.t not hr.e else in Amer ica is the law of weights and meas ures better enfore,,l- -that the aver age shortage by reason of short wetahts nndl meo:lres and light weight packages in the district, smounts to from i" to 15 per cent of the total value of the products sold. This process of chargring the consum er $1.12 or $1 1. fI.r what he ought to hbl" for a dollar goes on In every line of business, and In spite of one of the most thoronuh crusades ever made, the sealer of weights and menas ures of the district confesses that he is unanble, with the m,.ans at hand, to wipe out this nhuse Tomorrow - Thu Mndern Dance.
