Philadelphia. July 25.-The cost
of living is likely to atay high for
a long time to come In the opinion
of the Philadelphia Board of Trade.
This view Is a result of a compilation
of statistics from many lines of
trade and Industry.
According to these figures the ad
vance In prices In this country since
1914 has been about 107 per cent, in
Canada 115 per cent; Great Britain
133 per cent and France 235 oer
cent. It is pointed out that. In suite
of .material reductions In the price
of steel, the advance In other com
modities since the armsitlce has been
so great that the average price
schedules have been reduced but
5.7 per cent below prices prevailing
October 1, 191S.
The following are riven as reasons
why wages will not be mnch less for
a considerable period of time.
Practical stoppage of Immigration

several millions of workers who
would normally have come to u and
thus have relieved the labor short
