Food Prices under a Tariff. The "Daily Express" of Friday says:— "The high cost of living in Germany, and the inferior food, have been insisted upon so consistently by Liberal newspapers, especially at election times, that the 'Ex- press' is glad to quote from the 'Westmins- ter Gazette' (June 16th) the following con- tradiction. It must be remembered that Germany is a rigidly Protectionist coun- try:- 'And although the cost of living in 0 Germany has increased of late years, it is still substantially less than in England, and the hotels have the reputation of be- ing nearly the equal of the Swiss. 'The traveller must not, therefore, con- fuse the prices of the first-class estab- lishments in Germany with those in Eng- land, because the cost in many cases is considerably less than we would pay in a secoucT-elasiS hotel over here. Nor need it be supposed that because the room is cheap the manage- ment recoups itself on the price of the meals. The table d'hote fare may be rather above our means, but it is general- ly possible to take one's meals in the restaurant which is attached to nearly every first-class hotel in Germany. There is nothing to fear, then, in the cost of liv- ing in first-class hotels in Germany by people accustomed to put up at second- class establishments in this country. And as nearly everything else is corres- pondingly cheaper, Germany offers every inducement to the touring motorist.' The omissions from the quotation above in no way diminish the force of the pro- nouncement of the Radical organ that pro- tected Germany is a considerably cheaper country to live in than 'Free Trade' Eng- land."
