retail business men of this city that
unless prices of commodities essen

sharply and within a short time he
would set up a retail Btore organi

Mr. Wood said that It was useless
to raise wages and find the effect
lost in an increasing cost of living.

that having no wish to drive local
merchants out of business he would
give them "a reasonable time to re
adjust their prices."
