living we are certainly in the midst of record breaking prosperity This is nlso indicated by the distribution ou the first of the year of the greatest dividends ever made on the bonds and stocks of railroads and industrial companies We stay also observe what even the blind can see that the last four years have been the greatest trustforminjf period iii our history Nearly every commodity isi now controlled by some trust and is carried by railroads working in harmony Of course we know that trusts cheapen production and lower the cost of living sad that that iis their chief reason for existing but somehow prieet nearly always go up when a trust is formed and here wt arc at the beginning of 1902 with more trusts than ever before and prices at the highest notch ewer re cordedBut of course we

accommodations which have followed the increase of money seek ing investment and consequent fall in interest rates The Review also hastens to remind the xvageearner who may not like the look of Duns figures in retard to the east of living of the phenome nal growth in the deposits in savings banks and the increased amount of life insurance policies These it says do not indicate that time manufac turers and the capitalists are pocket ing all the profits These statements are very camfort ing to the millions of workingmen who are too busy to rend census statistics but who although they arc working harder than ever find them selves falling behind from year to year and who arc becoming so troublesome that some of tthe rail roads are raising wages slightly to prevent strikes In fact not only has the cost of living greatly in srcased during the llast ten years but wages money wages have been dc cliningAbout the middle of December the Journal of Commerce and Commercial Bulletin of New York contained the following statement Census bulletins for the manufac tures of 24 territories agricultural states and four small manufacturing states Connecticut Rhode Island New Hampshire and Delaware show in ten years an increase of 62 per ent in capital invested and 61 per cent in the value of output of 37 per cent in the number of wage earners and 33 per cent in the amount of wages- According to census statistics then money wages were about three per cent lower in 1900 than in 1890 lie ports for South Carolina tied Tennessee were made public December 30 and 31 The figures for South Carolina showed that average money wages were 20 per cent lower in 1900 than in 1S90 Those for Tennessee showed a decline of nine per cent in figo ures show an increase of SIX per cent from 1S90 to 1900 As compared with the 1590 wag el1rner the got 9G or 97 cents1900 wageearner Instead of one dollar for his labor while the cost of goods had gone up from one dollar to 106 Actual then declined over nine perwages Vent iron i89Q to 1900 rAs both of J these were considered to be prosper ous years the comparison is entirely fairThe cost of living rose over 40 percent from 1S97 to 1902 Have average money wages lien half as much even after mPmg allowance for the greater number of unemployed in 1807 Bnt the statisticians arc telling us there were more wom en and children employed in 1901 than in 1S90 If so why Do we per mit our wives girls and boys to enter the workshop when our earnings are sufficient to support then in our homes and schools Either there is somethingwrong with our statistics or with our prosperity Can it be possible that in spite of the assertions of our trust statisticians our boasted prosperity is like the handle of a jug all on one side and that the side of
