Wilson, Food Admin istrator for th? District of Columbia, relative to tbe excessive prtccs de manded In Washington for pork prod ucts, Thomas E. Wilson, of Wilson A Co.. Chicago, declares that the "law of supply and demand" governs the situation here and adv?calos that housewives buy cheaper cuts if meat to tsquallxe the prices. In his letter to the Chicago packer Mr. Wilson called attention to the fact that the public had received only about half the benefit in the decline of prices in the case of pork loins. In the reply the Chicago packer de clared that this condition is due en tirely to the fact that the puolic and otalers always demand the choicest cuts of meat while the cheaper cuts *.> begging and sometimes are a total Ices. The ?Chicago packed submitted scale of prices paid for live hogs and he prices prevailing for the sale of "he meats after preparation during the period from August 9 to October 4. The price scale showed that while the prices of live hoirs reduced the ?orice of pork loins remained at a pro portionately higher lev. 1 Explaining this Mr Wilson said that the demand 'or pork loins in Washington is much treater than for any other single ->ork cut. "It will also interest you to know hat our Washington, D. C. branch for he month of August made a profit of $321.3?. September $77.70. ?*T think that we will always be up ??.gainst price fluctuations, which as a rule are governed by conditions such is I have enumerated applying on 'resh pork. We must recognize the 'aw of supply and demand, which I will admit is not always a true re flection of actual conditions." The District Food Administrstor did -ot Intimate today what course would ollow now, explaining that as yet he *-ad not had time to properly analyze the letter from the Chicago packer.

Present quarters of tbe association, j 1009 Seventh street, were crowded to ] overflowing last night when ninety ! new members were elected?the fruit I of one day's work of tbe present > membership drive.

The association building will be on Seventh street, somewhere between G street and Florida avenue. Most of the members of the association are substantial business men identified with the business bouses and banks on Seventh street. "I feel confident that a building would be a good investment for us," President Driscoll said. "The ground floor and offices could be rented at a figure that would bring a good re turn. "The upper quarters, including an auditorium, could be reserved for the Mid-City Association. This associa tion has made history, and we expect to write another Important page when we erect this building." Mr. Driscoll outlined to the associa tion some of the undertakings ahead of the association. One of the first moves of the asso ciation will be to secure more play ground space for the several hun dred children attending the Grover Cleveland School. Mr. Driscoll told the association that "the reputation Washington has for profiteering cost her the head quarters of the American Legion." "Major Donovan, who attended re cently the convention of the legion in Minneapolis, told me on his return that he was astounded at the speeches made against Washington by dele gates at the convention. "The report had gone forth that profiteering was running riot in Washington, and the convention was influenced by those reports to keep as headquarters from our city. New Committees. "I want to say that there is no actual profiteering here. Prices here are high because of labor and other costs that have increased. There is no more profiteering here than there ts in other cities of the country." One member rose and said he dis agreed with the president as to his views on proflte-ering. "I have three automobiles and I take them to Fred erick to have all repairs made," he said. "The charges there are Just jne-half the charges made In Wash ington." GROCER IS HELD UP.
