It was then that that one dollar would procure only a little more than
a third of what it did in pre-war limes. This is shown bv -1 tabula
tion recently issued by the United States bureau of labor statistics,
which shows that the general wholsale price level in ( Ictober averaged
fifty pei cent, above that of 1913, the year preceding the war.
Wide fluctuations are still shown to exist w hen considered bv groups.
Compared with 1013. wholesale prices, food products as a whole
are only nineteen per cent, higher, while M ine foods are forty-two
per cent, higher; clothing and building materials are away above
the ju-3 figures, in some cases reaching ninety per cent.; fuel is
eighty-two per cent. ; house furnishing goods one bundled and
eighteen per cent., while metals and metal products are but twenty
one per cent. These estimates are based on wholesale prices in the
markets of Chicago. To the consumer the ratio mav have lluctuat
ed still further, it depending in a great measure on jhe disposition
of the retailer. The statistics furnished bj the goternmeni indicate
that while wholesale prices Of food in the year ending October 15th
fell off thirty per cent., the retail prices to the laboring man's
family dn pped but twenty-three per cent. If the figures are cor
rectly stated it seems to be the case of "Get all you can. while the
getting is good."
