I.abor Assembly discussed I .
orices of foodstuffs at this we. '. :, j
meeting and while the sentiment ofj
'hose present was plainly in favor of
the movement started by the civic dc ;
partment of the Fairmont Womar.'t
Club and other organisations of the
fair sex there was no official action
taken at tftls meeting . The matter I
?u tabled, not with the idea of "hill !
Ing" the proposition of endorrcmeiit
but that further investigation might
be made before the body gave the
proposition official endorsement.
J. P. West, a farmer, residing two
miles from Mannlngton. was one of
the speakers and lie made a comparison
of prices at Clarksburg. Fairmont
and Mannlngton. a! :o comparing tinprices
In the stores with those paid
tc the farmers. lie stated that faim
ers sold appHs at from ?1 to il .'.o a
bushel and that some Clarkshnrg retailers
sold them for titty cents a gel
Ion. which was $4 a htishel. Me fig
ured that the dealers make an enormous
profit on beans. Me cited peas !
an being sold t?y i:u- itimers at twenty-live
cents a gallon anil retailed at
folly cents a aidon. which he thought
might possibly lie considered a rea
.tenable profit.
Mr. West iliii not condemn the
stcre keepers b.:t he waj of the <ipini?u
that the cousumi r paid too much.
I* the farmers rottid e!l direct to con
sumer it would mean a great saving,
but he did not think that was practical.
It seems that three or four hand ;
mist handle goods between producer
and consumer. h? pointed out. In dr
fense of the merci.aiU he stated th
they claimed that they must pay ev
cesilve cents and that the conduct of
a bnslners was expensive.
Mr. West had Just come to Fair
mont from a visit to Clarksburg where
prices had interested him. The con
census of opinion was that prices were
li'gher at Fairmont than at Clarksburg j
and in fact higher at Fairmont than
a1 any other point in northern West

Hardly Any Difference Between
Foes on General
(Cv AHMK'lalCtl
AMSTKHDAM July 16 Damn von
Hurtaa. the Austin-Hungarian foreign
minister. in a note addressed to the
Austrian and Hungarian premiers ia
quoted in a dispatch from Vienna as
"There is hardly any difference between
the general principles enunciated
by the statesmen of both belligerent*.
President Wileon'a four new
rolnts of July 4 shall, not apart from
eeriain exaggeration*, arouse our opposition."
Continuing the Aurtro-liungarian
foreign niiuis'er said:
"The enemy obstiuancy recording j
historical demands concerning Alsace
Imrraine. Tries!. Trent ico and the
liettnan colonies appears to be insurmountable."
In his reference to President Wilson's
four new points in his July 4
pueth li.mui Hunan said he was
able to approve of them h*'ai:ily and!
'.hat to a great extent 'nobody would i
refuse homage to ihit genius and no-:
l-ody would refit e his c.irraboration."
licron Bur'an said none of the beh
! gersnt slates need ever come into
:e position reached by Russia, and
Rumania as "we ever ar?- ready to en- j
ter into peace negotiationa with all:
our opponents."
Continuing the Foreign Minister of
Austro-Hungary said: "If our enemies
continuously demand atonement forj
wrong done and restitution, then this
ia a claim which we could urge with
no justification against them because
we have been attacked and the wrong
done to us mutt be redressed "
