Salt Lake City, No. 14-1*14 ; IS STILL UNSOLVED : I ! PARTY IN POWER IS IN TROUBLE OVER HIGH COST OF LIVING. a I In Is STATISTICS CAUSE A FUSS Price Reports of Bureau of Labor In Controversy—Republicans Attack the Tariff Policy of the Democrats. By GEORGE CLINTON Washington—The party in power is having gome little trouble through tha still unsolved problem of the high cout of living. Not long ago a member cf the industrial commission report-d, without supplementary explanations, that there were 150,000 unem;'.oyed persons in New York city. This the Republicans seized Instantly as a basis for criticism of the Democrats' j tariff policy, saying the reductions in . the rates were responsible for the ; unemployed. The industrial commission is a gov- j ernment body and the majority of its ! members are Democrats. Naturally there was some Democratic resent ment that a party commission should i say things to hurt the party without j giving any explanation as to the rea sons for the things said. A quick ex- | planation was coming from the com- ! mission that the number of unem ployed was no greater this winter ; Now in the high cost of living mat ter the Democrats again are having ; some little trouble and a Democratic I official in a way is charged with re- : sponslbility therefor. The bureau of : labor statistics gets out retail price reports and in one of its recent ones it was shown that the cost of living ! is as high as ever. Instantly a New York man, said to be an expert in such matters, challenged the statistics i bureau and said that its figures were than in other winters. too high. Now the commissioner of labor sta tistics. Royal Meeker, appointed to the office by Woodrow Wilson, has come back at his critics and in a longer answer he gives the manner in which the bureau arrived at its retail price conclusions and virtually challenges anybody successfully to dispute the j recently published statistics. One thing which will probably be ; of specific interest to the country is Mr. Meeker'3 explanation of the way i that the bureau gathers and compiles j retall price statistics. He says in his j "Retail prices are secured from 670 stores scattered throughout 40 rep resentative cities of the United States, These stores are carefully selected by the agents of the bureau. No "cut '• rate" or "fancy" stores are taken, Stores that trade largely with work lngmen's families are chosen. These stores send in to the bureau the actual sales prices on the fifteenth of each month of the fifteen food commodities carried by the bureau. Agents visit the reporting stores annually to make sure that the reports sent in are cor Hits Back at Critics. ; in answer to his critics: E. ills to Tbe 15 food commodities have recL been carefully selected after years of experimenting. "A larger number of commodities was originally Included in the bureau's plans and would .be desirable, but it is Impossible to get reliable prices of fish, coffee, fresh apples, fresh vege tables, canned goods, etc., because the quality of the same description of an article varies capriciously. Mocha Java blend coffee, for example, does not mean the same thing from store to store, or from time to time. A Difficult Problem. "Clearly increases and decreases In prices cannot be traced from prices of articles that are one thing at one time and something different at an other time or several different things at one and the same time. The bureau has long been wrestling with the prob lem of getting quotations of more foodstuffs and of Including in its re tail price index boots and shoes, men's and women's clothing, and houses rent als. This is very desirable, but as yet it has not been practicable for rea explained above. "It would also be very desirable to extend retail price statistics to include a large number of cities and a larger number of stores in those cities cov ered. This cannot be done at present because of lack of funds. Democrat. Progressive and Republi leaders still claim or-admit. which want to put it, that the sons can ever way you party which can present the best plan to bring down the high cost of living i will be the one eventually not only to control of the government, but It readily secure to keep it for a long time. from the importance can be seen which Is placed upon this matter by the party men why it was that the Democrats were perturbed when a Democratic official without any ex planation of the reasons therefor said that 150.000 persons were out of work in New York city and when another Dexnocratlc official was charged with having put forth statistics tending to show that prices of food and neces saries are higher than they reaily are. The Democrats consider that the two criticisms have been successfully met and charge that they were prompted solely by the desire of political op ponents to put the dominant party at a disadvantage. States Rights Doetrlns. The Democratic party always has been a party of states rights snd to lay, perhaps curiously enough. It is Saving trouble to stand consistently >y its ancient opinions snd yet to pass he antitrust bills in the form which tt desires them to taka. Th* bill which when it becomes a law Is pec ted to unlock the interlocking di rectorates of modern industry fur nishes a case In which Democracy is having trouble to avoid the charge that it is for states rights In instance and not in others. When Woodrow Wilson was gover nor of New Jersey the anti-trust bills known as the "seven sisters" made into state laws. As has been : told In these dispatches the "seven I sisters" bills form in part the basis of ! what arc known as the "five brother" bills Intended to regulate the trusts and which are now before congress for action. It is in the application of the principles of the seven bills, drawn to meet the condition largely existing within one state, to the five bills in tended to meet a national condition that the Democrats are having their worries. e.t some in to a in of were "The party has used the ancient and by it revered doctrine of states rights •n the past to check what it has called j Republican rapacities, but now it Is . trying to find a way to dispose of the ; b°gy and yet keep it intact for the uses of the future " Here is the way that a Republican has put this matter of the Democratic difficulty: j ! to do away with interlocking director ates, the Democrats are confronted by i a question as to whether state banks j can be brought within the provisions of the statutes which it is proposed to | pass. The party of course wants the ! state bank directorates separated as it desires those of national banks shall be, and the question is can the sepa ; ration be accomplished without violat lng the doctrine of states lights, ; The house committee which is con I sidering the case has had Louis D. : Brandeia before it as a witness and : probably as an adviser. Mr. Brandeis is now engaged as special counsel by the interstate commerce commission ! in the railroad advanced rate case, He told the Democrats of the commit tee that there are three ways by which i they can pass the states rights ob stade by the Sank and yet leave it there intact for further use. Accord Where the Rub Comes. In the matter of the measure drawn Ing to Mr. Brandeis congress years ago established a precedent which can be used this day to justify the forbidding of Interlocking directorates of state banks. This precedent was set by the national lawmakers when they taxed the currency of state banks out of existence, j As a second method of reaching ; federal power, Mr. Brandeis says that all banking business of necessity par i takes of an Interstate character, or. j in other words, that it enters into in terstate commerce and that this fact j ought to bring it well within the realm of the power of congress to acL As a third method he says that the mat ter can be reached through the right of congress to declare what matter '• shall be carried in the United States mails. Presumably this means that the postal privileges can be withheld from any state bank which declines to comply with the law forbidding the interlocking of directorates, _ Deeche , in the cani ™ eD töe > speeches In the capi tol on what may seem to be trivial subjects, make every effort to show that they are determined this country shall continue to be a democracy, "a place of continued rule by the plain people with no frills on the ruled or the rulers." It is a curious fact that senators and representatives frequently show more alarm lest the democracy of the peo ple be undermined by some little thing suggestive of luxury or of de cadence of taste than they do over what appears to be the rapid growth of ciasç conditions in this country and the rapid concentration of wealth in the hands of the few. The big things which threaten democracy are over looked, but the little things are taken up on a high plane and pointed to as danger signals of a coming crash in the affairs of the republic. They have just been having a tre mendous debate in the senate over the use of automobiles by government officials. Congress, of course, sup plies the "working tools" of the men in executive official life here in the District of Columbia. It always has been the custom to vote money to pay for horses and vehicles .for the commissioners of the District of Co lumbia who are compelled to ride here and there on overseeing duty. Other officials have been voted horses and carriages, or rather, as is usually the case, buggies, without a question. In these days of automobiles and the quicker transportation facilities which they offer, naturally enough congress was asked to change horses and bug gies to automobiles and then came the protest and the great debate. Like Nero of Rome. a ; the states rights matter through the Make Much of Trivial Subjects. Members of congress, especially it In to to by a to to is One would think from what was said by more or less eminent senators of the United States from the floor of the senate that an official who rides in an automobile is tainted with all the vicious luxuriousness of Nero, emper or of the Romans. On hearing the philippics one would think that every official who uses an automobile has under his seat a fiddle and a bow which he is anxiously waiting oppor tunities to use for the making of music while Washington burns. These things make one laugh, and yet they are taken tremendously seriously by the congress of the United States, and what makes them absolutely absurd ts that all this talk is for home con sumption only, for the nature and aim of every senator and representative is to let the people of his district think that he is a plain man who infinitely prefers to ride in a street car to trust ing himself to one of those devils of modernism, an automobile. Uric Acid is Slow Poison Unseen in its approach, hard to de-, j— -— I It is bnt a further step to dropsy or painful in its later forms, uric acid poisoning is a disease too often fatal.

CLEVER WIFE Knew How to Keep Peace in Family, i It is quite significant, the number of persons who get well of alarming heart trouble when they let up on cof fee and use Postum as the beverage at meals. There is nothing surprising about it, j however, because the harmful alkaloid in coffee is not present in Postum, which is made of clean, hard wheat. "Two years ago I was having so much trouble with my heart," writes a lady in Washington, "that at times I felt quite alarmed. My husband took me to a specialist to have my heart examined. "The doctor said he could find no organic trouble but said my heart was irritable from something 1 had been accustomed to. and asked me to try and remember what disagreed with me. I remembered that coffee always soured on my stomach and caused me trouble from palpitation of the heart. So I stopped coffee and began to use Postum, trouble since. "A neighbor of ours, an old man. was so irritable from drinking coffee that his wife wanted him to drink Postum. This made him very angry, but his wife secured some Postum and made it carefully according to direc tions. "He drank the Postum and did not know the difference, and is still nsing it to his lasting benefit. He tells his wife that the Coffee' is better than it used to be, so she smiles with him and keeps peace in the family by serving Postum instead of coffee."
