We think that when conditions in this country are more settled Prof. Bayliss will find that foreign prices are equal to, if not in excess of, those ruling on this side, owing to the considerable increase in wages and raw materials. At the moment the rate of exchange makes the prices seem low as compared with those in this country, but can Prof. Bayliss obtain delivery at the low prices?
