COST OF LIVING.—WHAT Ml! MASSEY SAYS. On his attention being drawn to tho steady rise in the prices of all commodities necessary for household requirement.-;, the Prime Minister said that no Commission could fix the prices of any articles that have to bo imported. All they can do is to prevent excessive profits being made at this end. Europe and Germany's exportation of sugar having ceased, they must expect an increase in prices in New Zealand. The same remark applied to drugs and other commodities, a largo proportion of which came from Germany. Drugs could not now bo procured in England for the same prices as formerly.—Auckland wire.
