Trite as ma}' be this statement, its repetition is occ^sionallj'- neces sary. Two of the most stubborn obstacles that confront govern ments and the. governed are the wages question and the cost of living, Henry George wrote thus : -" Where wages are highest, there will be the largest production and the most equitable distribution of wealth. There will invention be most active, and the brain -guide be§t the hand. There will be the greatest comfort, the widest diffus ion of knowledge, the purest morals, and the truest patriotism." Although slightly altered by age, this dictum is still in the main correct, and, whilst justification for a mocUficatfon of the erstwhile more convincing contention may be admitted, never before was it more clearly proved than now that low wages are co-existent willi national degr...
