HIGHER COST OF LIVING.
RAPID ADVANCE IN PKICKS STARTLES
EVKS GOVKItSMiCNT STATISTICIAN.
j Living expanses are increasing at a
rate that finally has startled the gov
ernment statistician—and he is th«
last man in the world tn be startled at
anything.
For three years the average Ameri
can housekeeper has felt tbe strain of
increased household expenses, bat, un
til within a few montbs, tbe matter has
not appealed officially to the statistical
agents of tbe government. Indeed,
leps than a year agi figures were made i
public by the bureau of labor which
seemed to Indicate tbat there bad been ]
no increase in tbe living expenses of]
tbe average American citizen. Thel
_gures showed that some articles of ev
eryday use in American households had
gone up in price, but the e-euer-l per
Centage of increase «ass_ -nail as to
lie inconsiderable. At that very time
it was known to every householder in
the land tbat bis expenses uad inereas
ed materially and tV.it he was paying
more for tbe supi port of bis family
tuan he ever had paid before.
Mow these facts have dawned ou the
government officials. The latest in
lations made by the bureau of
bave thrown some h'.rong light
s subject. Tbe aritici.-.-) made of
ports made about a year ago in
the officers of tbe labor bureau
titute an inquiry into tbe cost of
sale amounts of commodities
illy used in heasekeeping. Tbe
trisous instituted covered a per-1
seventeen jears. Tbe inquiry
re wholesale prices of such arti
ad been completed at') now an
igalion into the retail rices of
me commodities is be; ; made,
itter will not be com .-ted for
I months yet; but the statistics
iting tbe wholesale prices has
red the statisticians for what
fill find in tbeir irqul- ■ into the.
prices. I
In tbe ii quiry only recently complet
ed it was discovered tbat the wholesale
prices of 258 ordinary commodities bad
reached a higher level in 1906 than at
any previous time in the history of tbe
Iry. Ct course, the period cover.
;he investigation was very sev
i years, but at no time prior to
ad prices so high been attained
ny considerable number of the
s investigated. Ou the whole
number of articles the average once in
las 5 C per cent, higher than it
1905, and 30.5 per c«nt. Mgher
n 18-7, tbe year in which the
prices of all the commodities
reached in the seventeen year
. The statistics Bbow thai the
it lever of prices was reached in
December, 1901}, the average for that
mouth being .-1 I per cent, higher than
for the entire year of 1906, aud 6 3 per
cent, higher than for the correspond
iug mouth of the previous year.
It is stated by the bureau of labor
tiiat the inquiries covered farm pro
ducts, food, clothing, lumber, building
material, drugs, house-furnishings and
miscellaneous commodities. Farm
products and chemical? showed a slight
decrease from the prices of 1905, but
all other products indicated a material
increase. The average price of farm
products showed, iv 1906. only a slight
Ciangefrom 1906, while food products,
aa a whole, increased 3 6 per cent over
1905. I
Sixty-six of tbe seveuty-five articles!
of clothing showed an increase in price,
while only four indicated a decrease.
In the others there was no change.
In submitting tbe figures the bureau
of labor makes no att. mpt to discuss
the causes of tbe rise and fall of prices,
contenting itself with a simple state
ment of the facts as It finds them. It
is siguilieant, however, tbat an inquiry
is being made into retail prices on the
very heels of the other investigation.
