WASHINGTON. I'cu. -.-President Tall
la a message to congrci-s today urged an
International Inquiry Into the high cost
of living. The president asked authority
to Invite the nations of the world to a
conference In this city or elsewhere to
mate plans for the Investigation of the
"high prices that have so distressed the
people of the world."
Mr. Taft also urged the appointment of
a federal commission to, make "searching
inquiry Into the subject ol mduitrlal rela
tions." "For some years past." said the presi
dent, "the high ami steadily Increasing
cost of living has been a matter of such
grave pt'bllc concern that 1 deem It of
great public interest that an international
conference be proposed at this time for
the purpose of preparing plans, to be
submitted to the various governments, for
an Intel national Inquiry Into the high cost
of living. Its extent, causes, effects and
Real Mailt .Needed.
"There Is no doubt but that a commis
sion could be appointed of such unpreju
diced and Impartial persona, experts in
economic fac ts, that a great deal of very
valuable light could be shed upon the
reasons fur the high prices that have so
distressed the people of the world, and
information given upon which action
might be taken to reduce the cost of
"Those who have conducted investi
gations have found that the phenomenon
of rising prices Is almost If u't quite
general throughout the world: but they
are baffled in the attempt to trace the
causes by the Imiwsslbllity of making
any accurate International comparisons.
This Is because. In spite of the number
of investigations already made, we are
mill without adequate data and because
as yet no two- countries estimate their
piic level on the same basis er by
the game methods."
' ladastrtal Relations.
As to the commission on Industrial
relations, the president said:
"There should be an Inquiry by the
federal governmlnt Into the general con
ditions of laoor. In the United States,
notwithstanding the fact that some of
tbe remedies will lie with the separate
states, or even entirely outside the
sphere of governmental activity. In the
hands of private individuals and of vol
untary agencies. One legitimate object
of such an official Investigation and
report la to enlighten and Inform public
opinion, which of Itself will often Induce
or compel the reform of unjust con
ditions or the abatement of unreasonable
"Vnquestlonabiy the time is now rli
for a searching Inquiry Into the subject
of Industrial relation which shall - be
official, authoritative, balanced and well
founded, such aH only the federal govern
ment can successfully undertake. The
present widespread Interest In the sub
ject makes this an opportune time for
an investigation which In any" event can
not long be postponed. ' It should be
nonpartisan, comprehensive, thorough,
patient and courageous."

LINCOLN. Neb. Feb t ' S;-i ial -The
pronouncement of former Senator
V. V. Allen In favor of Judson Harmon

has served to convince some of the friends
of Mr. Bryan that the task of delivering

It Is the consensus of opinion that any
votes which are cast for Champ Clark or
Folk for preferential ranrlidatea will come
from the element which otherwise would
go to Wilson and It Is therefore figured
out that there are several bumps In the
road of the Wilson automobile. It Is also
undeniable that a considerable portion of
the democratic party has leaked out of
the Bryan vest pocket, where It once re
posed so peacefully.
