The Officers of the High Coat of Living Commission, which has recently been taken over by and reorganized undpr the direction of the Department of Justice, have been at work getting information from other cities in con junction with similar Commissions in adjoining states so as to learn and adopt the best method of procedure It is the intention of the Commission to issue a Daily Bulletin, showing the scope of its investigation and the information received ooih rrom our State and points in aoj lining states as to the prevailing prices on food and clothing. It has likewise been determined by the Commission that instead of making the attempt t) regulate all kinds of prices on every commodity, a policy will be followed of selecting ten staples in groceries, five in meats, and an equal number in clothing, as well as a few staples in shoes, and establishing fair prices on these articles, which prices are to be based on the actual cost of the materials and not to be calculated on any replacement basis; in other words the Commission is goine to center its attention for the present on a few essentials of life, rather than the so called luxuries. With this information in hand, the facts are to be presented to the Fair Price Committee, the Chairman of which will be appointed in a few days, which Committee was formed and selected in accordance with specific instructions from the Attorney General in Washington, and with the confirmation of these prices, District Attorneys Slattery, of Covington, and Gregory, of Louisville, assure us they will be able to prosecute successfully, under the extension of the Lever Act, anyone charging Drie-- s in 9xce33 of the3R figures, Instead of relying upon the mails, the Commission is sending two of its members to get selling prices on these staples in adjoining states, and its investigators are actively at work procuring necessary data pertaining to local selling prices V B.

The plant contains 113 permanent buildings, with a roof area of over 26 acres. To provide the electric current it was necessary to build a steam power electric plant, for It would have taken three years or more to complete the station now undam and der way. This plant, built by the J. G. White Corporation, Is one .of the largest steam plants for developing electrical energy in the world. The output of the plant is 800 tons of ammonium nitrate a day, and this can be produced at Muscle Shoals at a cost the .standard fixed less than price paid by the Government for ammonium nitrate produced by other h to the methods and cost of other high explosives of equalH strength.

When America entered the world war in April, 1917, she had no mcan of producing jhe enormous quantities of high explosives necessary to provide .the huge army she planned to raise. The very fact that our Industries- were, already worked to capacity providing ammunition to the allies seemed to make further production for our own use Impossible.

The price of ! MV sugar m tne city or iouisviiie ranges all the way from lie to 28c per pound. The dealers who sell the high price sugar claim that the wholesaler cannot or will not furnish Eastern sugar and that they are charging 18c to 20e per pound wholesale, for the Louisiana sugar. We can. not understand why they cannot get Eastern sugar at Eastern prices in this district. A great many of the complaints seem to feel that there is a falsification somewhere and that the scarcity of sugar as heretofore suggested so artifically was for the purpo s of selling the high price sugar in this market, therefore the Commission has started an investigation which will reach from Louisville through the Press as it develops. We note an erroneous statement has been circulated with reference to the Sugar Board. The Sugar Board still has jurisdiction oyer sugar and sugar prices and we are going to request that said board take up the Louisville situation and use our best endeavors to get Eastern sugar into this market if the wholesaler can be induced to handle it. We do not believe that it is impossible to get Eastern Sugar that can be sold at the usual sugar profit, for 12c a pound therefore we are in hopes of being able to fix a price at not more than 12c within the near . . profiteering but likewise have to pay exorbitant prices to the producer makings it necessary that the correction of the present condition will have to take place at the source of production making it exceedingly "difficult for this Commission as they are most always outside of our juris diction but where local profiteering is j)revailing-o- r where prices are charged or based on replacement basis instead of the actual cost, the District Attorney's will begin prosecutions.

And the sales in so far us thoroughbred yearlings offered in the eastern market are concerned are held mainly in the month of August and conducted in a splendidly appointed establishment built by Mr. Tranter three or four seasons back after the best European models, but with certain American establishments. Everybody who Is "anything in the thoroughbred world, or ever hopes to be, flocks to Saratoga in August. The thoroughbred yearling sales, and especially -- ttose held at night under the glare of electric nrcs, have become social funo. lions. Men never think of going out tothe night sales from the palatial cottages and the great hotels save In evening dress. Women attend them Invariably In evening dress, or according to ore's point of view. The best appreciation of the expansion of the thoroughbred auction sales .business and of the increase in thoroughbred values is to be obtained by .comparing the records of 1919 with the records of 1917 and 1918. Two yearlings Inndred and seventy-thre- e were led to the auction block. In 1917 nd they brought a total of $383,275, n an average of $1,404 a head. horses of racing age brought $116,100, an average of $1,732.83 a iead.

BIG NITRATE PLANT RESULTS. js Built d It Convinces Kaiser of His Defeat. in Eight Months By GARRET SMITH. EVERYTHING IN One of the most romantic passages the secret history of the World War the story of how the Ordnance Department of the United States Army made it possible for America, until then utterly lacking In ammunition and In facilities for making It, to manufacture unlimited quantities of powerful explosives out of air and rock. It was largely the knowledge of this fact that forced Germany to surrender when she did. In !s -- jm--dres- s, , Sixty-,seve- 9. The secret was secured from Germany herself. It was an open business transaction between' business men, whereby we apparently acquired nothing more military than a process for making a high grade fertilizer known as cyanamid. Frank Sherman Washburn, head of the group of business men who bought this process, conceived the germ of the Idea In the early nineties while in South America as consulting engineer in connection with the production and shipping of Chilean nitrate of soda. Nltrogenjcompounds are an essential part of all commerclar fertilizers. The only available natural nitrate deposits In large quantities are In. Chile. This Germany, supply was diminishing. il which had been taking about of the Chilean nitrates, wns already experimenting with processes for their artificial production. In 1907 Mrv Washburn secured In Germany the American rights of the cyananifil one-thlr- $1,-:57.9- G process which had been Invented in that country. Turnino Air Into a Weapon. By this process air, which Is a mixs ture of about nitrogen gas h oxygen, Is placed in conand tainers and subjected to pressure"" and cold jxntll it turns to a liquid. Then the nitrogen is distilled In much the same manner as alcohol is separated from water. But before this nitrogen can be used as a fertilizer it must be combined with a chemical combination of lime and carbon known as calcium carbide, produced by burning ordinary limestone in big rotary kilns and combining It In the electric furnace with carbon supplied in the .form of ordinary coke. Cyanamid Jhus produced contains the elements of ammonium nitrate, one of the most powerful of modern explp-lve- . By one process ammonia Is extracted from the cyanamid.

These res relate merely to the auction business. Many horses of vari- jtmt ages have been bought and sold jprirately. Montford Jones paid $40,000 Ijte Jun, $pr the Brokhol Run Into Big Money.

He was owned by Dr. J. L. Huggins, Dandridge, Tennr, recently held by the Sherman County, Ore., Shorthorn Breeders Association at Moro, Ore., .at which an average of 369 was secured" A sale plants for manufacturing all three of these explosives. Under the best of conditions the cost of either TNT or nitric acid is about .two and one-hathe cost of ammonium nitrate. But the United States was wholly dependent upon Chilean nitrate of soda as a raw material for ammonium nitrate, with the exception of a small production of nitrogen from the coking of coal. The Chilean supply was 4,500 miles away from New York City by way of the Panama Canal, and the route by way of the Straits of Magellan is nearly twice as long. A Record Building Operation. Shortly after the war began in Europe the German government entered into the fixation of air nitrogen for military explosives on a vast scale. It was not, however, until the fall of 1917 that the United States government took it up. The Ordnance Department asked Mr. Washburn's company to organize a subsidiary corporation, known as the Air Nitrates Corporation, with Mr. Washburn as president, to act as agent of the government for the construction and operation of the air trates plant at Muscle Shoals, Alabama. This corporation provided the designs, erected the equipment in the chemical plants and supervised all the other work. It also operated the camp, fhe town and the plant. Other workjs sublet to several of the best known organizations in the United Stntes. Westlnghouse Church Kerr Company built the plant buildings, the camp, the permanent city and utilities. The J. G. White Engineering Corporation designed and built the nitrate acid, plant. The M. W. Kellogg Company furnished the piping and built the chimneys. On February 10, 1918, ground was broken, and eight months and eight days later the 00,000,000 Muscle Shoals plant began producing ammonium nitrate. In that brief period 28,000 men had completed the plant and around it, where not a house stood before, had arisen a city of 25,000 inhabitants.
