Everytime the impecunious customer begins to nurse
a new hope of lower prices, along comes some economic
sharp and blasts the tender bud. Most people have
thought the cost of living, now so burdensome, would
probably go down in a year or two. But Prof. Irving
Fisher of Yale, recognized as one of the leading experts
of the country, expresses his disinterested judgment that
little reduction in general prices may be expected "in the
He bases his forecast on "the inflation pf gold and
currency." There is much more money in the country
now, and so much more money in all the other countries,

BEHIND THE PROCESSION.
' Congress has endorsed equal suffrage and the var
ious states will no doubt ratify this action in turn, since
many of them have already endowed woman with the
right to vote. Whether one likes the idea or not equal
suffrage in this country is inevitable.
And right here comes some astonishing news,. Mrs.
Thomas J. Preston, of Princeton, New Jersey, widow of
former president U rover Cleveland, has been elected
first vice-president of the state association opposed to
suffrage for women. Mrs. Garrett A. Hobart, widow of
the former vice-president, was chosen second vice-president
of the association at the same time.
What's the use? It's like the old Johnny Reb who
never surrendered when the star of the Confederacy went
down in defeat. Reactionary minorities are always in
existence, of course, helping to give savor to life perhaps,
v nd in a way enabling the more progressive members of
human society to appreciate the distance they have trav
eled in a generation.
Still, since equal suffrage has arrived, would it not
h- better for these splendid women to accept the situation
and bend their energies toward making it a means of
better government, clean, honest and conservatively pro
gressive? The unconquered rebel of the south who went
to his grave in a shroud of stars and bars wrote not a
lire of the glorious history of a united country during the
past half century, while the fame of Henry Watterson,
Henry W. Grady and other leaders of the New South is
an inspiration for all true Americans.
It is after all only a freak of huttum nature that the
New Jersey association illustrates. And one is inevitably
templed to sum it up in the cartoonist's phrase: "But it
A esn't mean anything."
measured by other things, and so it takes a great deal
more of it to exchange for other commodities.
Whether anything can be done about it is doubt
ful. It is really a familiar phenomenon. The purchasing
power of money in all countries has been tending down
ward for centuries. A few pennies would once buy as
much food and clothing or shelter or land as a dollar
buys now. The movement has not been continuousit
has proceeded jerkily with occasional reversals. But on
the whole the tendency is clearly enough marked. The
present situation simply registers an unusually big drop
in purchasing power, due to sudden multiplication of
money volume growing out of war finance, and helped
somewhat by the destruction by war of large quantities
of wealth other than gold and silver.
If the gold and silver .supply hereafter increases
! more slowly, or if some "absolute value of standard" is
adopted instead of the present fluctuating gold standard,
or" if the general supply of wealth is increased more rap
idly than the money supply, in the next few years, prices
will naturally tend downward again. But for the immed
iate future, at least, it is well to be reconciled'to the pres
ent levels, and to try to meet them by a corresponding in
crease in incomes, and by wiser economy.
Think of the effrontery of a mere governor of the
state investigating the affairs of the fish and game com
mission ! Those who understand that the game warden is
ihe most powerful despot in existence since the war shook
most of them off their thrones, will not be surprised to
learn that the investigation developed nothing new. ' All
there is to the administration of the fish and; game affairs
of the state is that the officials in charge jeceive a very
large annual income from licenses, that they may spend
this as they please and account to nobody, and, further
more, that they enact their own laws, rules and regula
tions. This being the case, why should there be an inves
tigation? It would be impossible for men who are a law
unto themselves to be guilty of any transgression of the
' And there are some people in this country who think
C 'irnany is getting off easier than the Americans be-
v. use the war at least hasn't brought them prohibition.
