It may; be the old story law of supply and demand being jtaken advantage of. Al the same time there Is another side to it. and that is that landlord; irbo depend on their Incomes from rents have to raise the same to meei ihc rise in the cost of living, just as ivages and other things are raised through, the same cause.
