Howell Looks Into
the Increased Cost
of Bags and Bagging
Federal investigation of price boosting
since the opening of the IJoropoan war
assumed definite shape when United
KUlea District Attorney F. 8 Howell
turned his batten upon manufacturer
ot burlap ha kb. Flour milling concerns
have plactJ evidence in the hands of the
sovirnmcnt authorities showing that one
reaeon for the ralae In their product is
the fact that the makers of burlap bags
raiaed the price from M a thousand to
I1M Inside of eighteen daya.
On July 25, one bag making concern
quoted burlap bags at IM per thoussnd.
Kvery day thereafter the prices went up
until by August 11 the price became al
The milling concern turned to other bag
makers in the hope of setting baa for
le.se money, but found the same condition
of affairs existing.
The reason given by the bag makers
for the steady rise Is that the war has
stopped the Importation of Jute, from
which burlap bags are made. Whether
Or not this 1 true, and whether there Is
good cause for such a marked Increaae
Is the objective point now of the govern
Other bags ' nerwaaair to the milling
business have gone up In price also, It Is
alleged, but, except for the burlap flnea,
which are needed for meal, etc., the In
crease has not been so marked.
Information regarding a raise In price
on plate glsss, paints, etc.. Is also In the
hands of the government men.
