quest for bis views upon the high cost
of clothing. 1 ,
"If our people would consent," was
his conclusion, "to wear good sub

Hie statement in part follows:
"It la generally tnougnt mac me
cost of cloth is the controlling factor
In ths coat of clothing, hut the fact
is that tha cloth cost is less than half
the cost of a completed ajylt, and
other factors contributed t the price
of clothing quite as much as the cost
of tha cloth.
"In tha last five years the cost of
clothing the ordinary ault of clothes
nas advanced no mere, inoeeo, nas ad
vanced a little less, than the cost of
labor and other materials that go
into the making pf the suit. The fol
lowing figures show this, which I have
from a manufacturer and merchant
of clothing of the highest prominence
"The cost In 119 of the cloth for a
suit of clothes of a particular grade
is 113.67. The corresponding cost In
1914 was $4.58, showing an Increase
in tha cost of cloth of .0.

question why prices of clothing do

clothing continue so high."
