COST OF LIVING
FIGURES COMPILED
Family of 5 May Live Cheaper
in Southwest Washington
Than in Eastern Part.
RETAIL QUOTATIONS GIVEN
Annual Expense to Family in South
western Portion of State $405.93,
Eastern Section $4 28.94 and
In HerfMMit $4 16.82.
OLYMPIA. Wash.. July 25. (Special.)
The cost of living In the State of
Washington Is least In the southwest
ern section of the state, according to
figures compiled by State Labor Com
mlssloner Olson. The annual cost of
' food supplies and fuel for a family of
five in the southwest Is 1405.93, while
in the eastern part of the state it 1:
$428.94. and In the northwestern sec
tlon S416.8Z.
These figures were gathered In towns
of 1000 population up, excluding the
three chief cities of the state, Seattle.
Tacoma and Spokane.
Of the big cities the cost of living is
lowest In Seattle and highest In Ta
coma. its neighbor on the Sound, while
Spokane strikes an average between the
two. The figures for the three cities
are: Seattle. $418.46: Tacoma, $431.57;
Spokane. $424.03.
Retail Quotation Taken.
These totals are based on retail price
quotations on small lots of supplies
gathered from merchants in each of the
towns and cities. The quantities used
were determined in a previous inquiry
carried on among the families of work
Ingmen. The statistics were gathered
for possible use in wage inquiries.
There are many Interesting compar
isons in the list, which proved a sur
prise to the Labor Commissioner when
he received a tabulation of the figures.
It had been his belief, based on talk
of high freight rates and other condi
tions, that the Spokane figures would
be higher than the rest. Instead, with
the deduction of the wood and coal
prices, the Spokane total is least of all.
Prices on meat are noticeably lower
in Spokane, which makes up for a
difference in favor of Seattle In some
other commodities, but the Tacoma
prices, almost throughout the list, range
considerably higher. This Is true even
of fresh fish, which are largely shipped
to Spokane from Tacoma and other
Sound points. Some of the comparisons
In the list are:

John Chapman, of Sherwood, In Ad
dressing Hopffroiren Declares
Tax System Is Real Harm.
M'MINNVILLE, July 25. (Special.)
Placing the blame for the present
agitation in favor of Prohibition on
the shoulders of indifferent city and
county authorities, John Chapman, of
Sherwood, spoke before 200 hopgrowers
here this afternoon.
"We have laws," he said, "which if
applied conscientiously by the police
and county officers would control the
undesirable and lawless saloon. The
fact that control by means of the li
cense system is a success has been
demonstrated in Portland, where three
licenses have been revoked in less than
two months.
"There are those in every business
who disrespect the law. There are
saloonmen who violate their license
provisions. These men should be ar
rested and their licenses revoked,
where it has been proved they have
become constant violators. Under this
system the law Is respected, temper
ance Is advanced and a legal check Is
placed upon the so-called liquor traffic.
"The people at large are not against
the hopgrower. They are against the
abuse of liquor, and it is this aversion
that has been played upon by the
Prohibitionist to force his theory down
the throats of all people. If the au
thorities do their duty or if they had
done their duty there would now be
no Prohibition supporters."
A. J. Ray, president of the Hop
growers' and Dealers' Association, ex
plained the work of his organization.
W. J. Bishop, of this city, spoke on
the importance of the hop industry as
related to state prosperity. Phil
Metschan. a Portland Hotel man, also
addressed the meeting.
.By unanimous vote Tom Rogers, a
merchant and extensive hopgrower,
was elected vice-president of the Hop
growers' and Dealers' Association in
Yamhill County. '

James Montgomery Flagg
In Words and Pictures
THIS paper takes pleasure in announcing a most attractive fea
ture consisting of a series of full-page articles written and
illustrated by James Montgomery Flagg.
A caricature of the author and artist by himself.
(Copyright 1914)
Mr. Flagg is todav the most popular American illustrator. He
has also the faculty of expressing his wit and humor in words afl
well as pictures, and within the last two years has come to rank
as one of our foremost American humorists .and satirical writers.
Society, its foibles, games and pleasures; our modem home life
and social tyfws are the subjects which appeal to Mr. Flagg, and
he depicts these with his versatile pen in a most amusing and
entertaining manner.
Each article in the coming series will deal with a seasonable
topic, the opening one on Sunday, August 2, describing the expe
riences of a young couple incident to the purchase of a first auto
mobile. Everyone who has an auto and everyone without one will get
a laugh out of Mr. Flagg 's treatment of the subject.
The text is highly amusing and the page is illustrated in Mr.
Flagg's best 'style.
