These resolutions went to the committee cn temperance, prohibition and public morals. The resolution pertaining to Ireland was Introduced by Dr. J. C. Nicholson of Baltimore. It recited there la pend. Ing in Congress a bill providing for sal. arles of Ministers and Consult to the "Republic of Ireland," and continued: "We hereby record our opposition to all such efforts to Induce our Govern ment to engage In this unwarranted In terference In the domestic affairs of Great Britain.1 Congress was urged to defeat all bills, resolutions or enact-. ments that propose or assume recognl- j Hon of "the Republic of Ireland.'1 Most of the members of tho untflca-( tlon commission, which yesterday report ed on the question of union of the Meth odist Episcopal Church. North and South and recommended the problem be con- sldered by a special committee ot about J 150, were named as members of the Epeclal committee to-day. The Bishops who were nominated as members of the special committee were Earl Cranston, John W. Hamilton, William F. McDow ell. Frederick D. Lette and Richard J. Cooke. The committee on Judiciary, which will be appointed to-morrow, was asked to have early and open hearings and to give not later than May 15 a declaration of conference rights and duties to tho general boards of the church.

The high standard of living and the low prices pre vailing in the United States prior to the war were made possible by large volums on the part of the producer of raw materials, the manufacturer of the finished product and the merchant-distributor to the consumer. Today production is not going at full capacity, and the result is that prices are high, with little real prclpect of their coming down until production reches a normal volume. High prices cause a curtailment of consumption, which in turn means that the manufacturer cannot produce his normal output with the expectation of selling it at these high prices. Thus the vicious circle is joined. In the effort to make the first real break in its oppressive circle the Wanamaker Stores, with full knowledge of all that it involves, have taken step unprecedented in the history of mer chandising.' Though today manufacturer merchant, banker, eco nomist are all frank in stating that their Judg ments as to the future prices are but guesses, the Wanamaker Stores offer their entire stocks at one-l . fifth off. The result of this offering no one can know, but we have faith in American business, and we believe that by making this experiment some thing will be learned of value to the governmental, financial and mercantile interests of the country. Very frankly, from our own view-point as merchants, we believe that the increased volume which will come as the result of this lowering of prices will enable us to justify the losses taken on our stocks. We believe this is the proper time to begin to reconstruct business on a peace-time basis. Already some mills are not running at capacity because the public cannot use the total production at the high prices prevailing. This condition. will un doubtedly correct itself over a period of time, fol lowing economic laws. If, however, the adjustment can be made quickly, it will be so much better for the consumer, who needs the merchandise, and for labor, which needs the work. , Such a movement as is inaugurated by the 20 per cent- deduction sale at Wanamaker s cannot help but stabilise prices. Firtt of all, it will indicate at what prices the consuming public can absorb the great volume of production. Second, if there are any stocks of hoarded goods held by profiteers for a rising market, they will undoubtedly be brought into the open. Third, some sort of a staple market price will be established for merchandise of various char acters, thus enabling financial interests to make their loans on some real basis of value. Fourth, the economic law of competition will force into line those retailers, few though they undoubtedly are, who hate taken advantage of the unstable condition to obtain for themselves unfair profits, thus releasing Governmental investigations and activities to more normal fields. Yes, even our new Straw Hats for Men including a just-received English ship ment of the famous Redleaf straw hats are included. $2.50 to $5 less 20 per cent. which means $2 to $4 Burlington Arcade floor, New Building. THIS is the wedge a sharp wedge that we are driving into the high cost of living with th hope that it will split the merchandise market wide open and let in both light and reason. High prices do not begin with the retailer. They begin back with the increased cost of raw material, with the restriction and high cost of manufacture, with the tieing up of goods by speculators, and with unsettled condition of labor. But high prices do culminate with the retailer and the sledgehammer blow that may break their backbone must begin at the point of con tact with the consumer.
