Kvery innnufacliirei', Horn the Mteol triml down, in be

roads have not cars enough to handle the business mid
there is a country-wide complaint on ear shortage.
The clothiers will show you notices from New York and
Chicago of an advance of 12 to 25 per cent in cost of spring
lahrics. The dry goods merchant will show you notices
of still greater advances in suits and dresses with shades
running to green the experimental American dyes not
giving very good satisfaction, nnd nothing guaranteed.
The hardware man will show increases running into
the hundreds of per ev.ui on various articles und hard to
get, nt that. Shovels ore climbing like skyrockets. Gul
vanied iron has gone up 100 per cent. The electrical sup
ply houses tell the same story in foci, everything that
conlninB zinc or copper or iron or other metal used in war
munitions 1ms increased enormously m price.
ICverything that contains analine dves has soared in
price since the Herman supply was cut off. Paint has gone
up and red paint is prohibitive, a $fl can is how $15. And
white lend and zine cost more, and linseed oil and turpen
tine and even the can that contains it, has gone up for
the can trust is making cartridge clips.
I lie printer is hard hit. All quotations are oil on ink
and paper, Jt is almost impossible to secure yellow, red,
blue or other colored inks at J500 per cent increased cost
and oven black ink is mounting. Paper of all grades has
gone up from 2.1 to 200 per cent. The scarcity of blenching
chemicals has given all the newspapers a yellowish tinge.
.Fertilizers have increased J00 per cent in cost. If the
farmer gets more for his crop, the profit is eaten up in in
creased cost of phosphates, nitrates and manure. The
(jornian nitrates are cut off. The Chilean beds are not
yielding. Ocean freight has quadrupled and the vessels
are carrying munitions and supplies.
The druggist has an awful tale of woe. Everything in
the drug store costs more. All the chemicals and drugs
started up in price, with the war, and have kept on climb
ing and will continue to climb until the normal conditions
of supply are restored.
The eatables and necessities of life arc higher. Eldur
is higher. Sugar has gone up $2 a 100 pounds. Meat
products are higher. Almost every line is affected, for
the war has thrown the commercial world out of joint ami
demoralized commerce. Higher cost of production means
higher cost of consumption and the people pay the cost.
To these increases, caused directly or indirectly by the
war, must be added the increases caused by human greed
and monopoly taking advantage of (ho situation. The high
price of gasoline is a sample of this greed.
Prosperity, or the wave of over-production which nl
ways follows hard times, or the wave of under-production,
creates high prices, even under normal conditions, under
our present imperfect and crude industrial system a do
vise of the capitalistic system to benefit capital. The re
vival of industry always means more work for labor,
slight advance in wages aud larger increase in tho cost of
living. It is accompanied by expansion and inflation,
which naturally create a period of depression to take up
'I'lio cream of the prosperity, as is always the case, is
skimmed by the speculators and stock and bond owners.
As these are comparatively few, a period of "prosperity"
always increase's the prosperity of the few. The dividends
on Standard Oil outweigh the increased cost of labor or
materials of iiroduetion. The same is true with the rail
mads, nnd all great industrial corporations, especially the
mushroom munition plants. None of them feel the pinch
of the inctvnscd cost of living.
The bulletin of the National City lrnnk of New York
thus siiiiiinarises the luincM situatien:
