to us that in industrial life also a

REDUCTIONS  AND   SPECIAL
INDUCEMENTS.
It is appar< nt to the most casual
observer that the buying public need
special inducements to make them
purchase.
This suggests either one of two
things, a shortage of memory which
must be constantly reminded that
prices are lower, or reluctance to
buy unless cut prices are offered.
SI ould the public contract a mania
for bargain-hunting, every possible
means should be utilized to remedy
such a "malady".
The holiday season will be of assistance here, inasmuch as it will not
It so necessary to offer special price
reductions when people are buying
goods for gift purposes, but it is,
nevertheless cjuite in order to emphasize the fact that i riees are lower
than was the ease Last ye *r.
The bargain I unting habit is one
easily formed and the retailers, themselves, are the ones who do most to
create it.   Cut prices attract trade
ai times when no other appeal is effective but when a prolonged condition develops wherein nothing but
cut prices will induce purchases, it.
,    needs looking into.    The cut prices
become  the  merchant's  master in-
oi' being his servant.   Instead

endeavour to d-
!ln around upon which
business m*
ti rests could construct a fair basis of
assessment for presentation to the
Provincial Government for the relief
of tlo municipalities, and for the
broadening of the held of taxation.
Thi I'. B. C, M. finally endorsed the
principle of the income tax, as being
preferable to the personal property
tax.
The result of these endeavours was
apparent when the Budget speech
\i as delivered.
The finance minister proposed that
the municipalities be empowered to
colled o tax of one half per cent, instead of one per cent, as originally
eonti inplated.
This concession, evidently due to
ih.' o] position expressed by the Provincial H. M. A. executive, is not satisfactory, inasmuch as the Association is definitely committed to the
opposition of the principle of the
Personal Property Tax, regradless of
the money involved.   After further
vigorous action by the R. M. A. the
government   withdrew  its  proposal
to give the municipalities the right
to levy the Personal Property tax.
This news was gladly welcomed
by other commercial bodies, whose
representatives  personally  thanked
the Premier for such a liberal con-
cession, but there are rumours that
the revision of the Budget announcement regarding   this   much-abused
tax, embodies drastic features, which
will nol be received so avidly by the
commercial bodies alluded to if, or
when the tax become law.

in anj particular eommuhity in regard to lighting matters.  If 'its show
windows arc equipped in such a man-
»er that the effect of colored light
ean be demonstrated, they will no
doubt awaken much interest on the
part ol the merchant in this subject,
ro produce a colored light, of course
means  considerable  absortion  and
hence a high wattage required for
lighting any  particular area.    The
pleasing effect secured, however, am.
plj repays for this additional expenditure.
It is not necessary for a merchant
to install a great deal of special wiring or multiplicity of circuits in his
window to get the different effects.
The wiring for the demonstration,
hov ever, will naturally be somewhat
complicated, for in the case of the
central station or electric shop window, it is well to have a flexible lighting system.    In order that the effects may be demonstarted and attention attracted a variation should
be produced by means of a flasher.
For such a demonstration window.
it is well to install equipment approximately as follows:
Overhead window reflectors.
One or more overhead spotlights.
One circuit for baseboard reoept-
acles,
In the average store, it does not
seem to be in good taste to have the
lighting system varied by means of
a dasher as in a demonstration window. This might be all right to attract attention, but it is not the ultimate artistic end. In the regular
store, the standard show-window
eampment   should   be so arranged

THE BRITISH COLUMBIA RETAILER
Deeembe
Board of Commerce
Incompetent Body Declared ultra vires in Final Court of Appeal.
By Geo. S. Hougham.
The ruling of the Privy Council
made public in the press recently iu
which the final court of legal appeal
in  the  British   Empire  declares the
Board to be ulti vires revives what
was once a eontroversiil issue <»t
considerable significance to retail-
• is. It will I" remembered that *ii<*
Board arose out of tin* popular hue
and cry for the uprofiteer*' and was
an attempt on the part of the Government to llliy public unrest with
reference to the high cost of living.
It immediately established itself as
a Court and held inquisitorial sit -
tings all over the country at whieh
retailers, and retailers only he it
noted, were brought up tor examination, their books of account and bus
incss affairs generally being subjected  to  public  analysis.    The  Hoard
was composed of two eminent law
vers and an executive officer of the
Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen.
and out of their lack of business ex
perience these gentlemen assiited,
sn it was stated. b\ "experts' proceeded to set asidi the ordinary lawn
of economics and made rulings for
the control of retail prices whob
would hive I n humourous but for
their tragic failure to fulfil the pur
pose they bad in view.
Personel of Board Questioned.
The Retail Merchants' Associa
tion of Canada never bad any quarrel with the Board of Commerce as
such, because as a matter of fad tin*
Association has for yen)! pressed
upon the Federal Governmenl the
necessity fi r the establishment of
some   Board   01   Commission   thai

member of the Hoard should be a
qualified business man. nol neceuir
ilv a retailer, but a man familiar in
a practical wn\ with the problem of
modem distribution.
The results were soon apparent in
tin* suiril in which the enquiries wee,
conducted, the power which the
Board assumed and ihe rulings made
under  its direction.    It   is  interest
ing to recall iu this connection that
tin- third member of the Hoard. Mr.
Frank Munlock, of the Brotherhood
of Kail way  Trainmen, was declared
by tin Government to be an econ
on,is; of   international   reputation
Ills knowledge of economies may pel
hips be judged by the fact thai at
an enquiry held »n Ottawa, at which
a retail clothier was under investi
gatton, air. Murdoch in the pretence
of the Court and g large number ot
busin- ss    men.    expressed    surprise
when informed that a retailer would
put rent *nt«> bis ''overhead The
incident would hardly be worth recalling except for the prominence
that has been given to Mr. Murdoch s
public utterances during the reeenl
campaign in which he assured tin*
public thit the Hoard of Commerce
bad been secretly assassinated
R. M. As Position Sustained
\s time went on it became mon
,uol more evident that the Conn wag

for which il had been cretted, ind m

Court of Canada for 'be pllfpOSC ol

could exercise under the Act which
created it.   The position taken by
Ihe R   M. A, wan thll the Hoard bad
no power to fix prices and ibis pod
tion was sustained hy three out of
six of the judges before whom the
argument was heard, The case wis
then taken to the Privy Conned with
the result that the position of the If

a Board with such possibilities for

Tin* incident goes to prove the irgu

chants   Association all ov.-r Canada
have reiterated with constantly In
creasing emphasis that business if
fairs need to bo administered hy
business people,
It   WOUld   be  as logical  tO  have  u

A large number of furriers buy
law mi's and have them dressed by
people who make fur dressing a business. "In our opinion, the retail
furrier should not pay a sales tax on
the cost of dressing, as we consider
such operations are exempt."
A test ease, however, is now before the Conrts on the same point in
connection with another section of
Made, and until this is settled members are advised nol to collect or pay

The Saddest Words in the
Grocery Business: "I Took a Chance!"
It is said that the remarkable success of
Mr. E. H. Harriman, the great railroad man,
was due to the fact that "he never took a
chance." His keen eye sought only the sure
things.
i
i
The wide-awake grocer needs no longer
to take "chances' with the goods he buys.
When the risk is eliminated and the sale
guaranteed, as in the instance of Postum.
Grape-Nuts and Post Toasties—there's no
excuse for taking chances.
There's  a   reason for the positive sale
guarantee back of Postum, Grape-Nuts and
Post Toasties.
Its the Postum year-'round
publicity policy—not a policy
that blows hot and cold—but a
systematic and uninterrupted
National advertising campaign
that insures always a quick and
profitable turnover on every
package the grocer buys.

sweel biscuits which are being quot-

past.
Sago and Tapioca.—A firmer undertone is noticed in these two cer-
'"al lines. Shipments due in about
thirt) days will be 2c per pound
higher than present prices.
Tea,—-An advance of from two to
six cents per pound on the different

in the year. Tea at present prices
is good buying.
Glace and Crystallized Cherries.—
Advices received hy wholesalers two

wholesalers packed in eiirht pound

Glace, and |1.05 per pound for the

received this week are being quoted
al $14.0(1 per ease whieh is about T-*»

Cereals—There appears to be a
general firmness in all cereals, particularly peas, beans and other bulk
lines. Pancake Hour is moving t'ree-

oats, which are heavy sellers during

outlook does nol warant a lowering

Labor, Materials and Maintenance
Cost Factors
In determinig cost of goods, materials and Labor and expense of
maintaining ,a plant, are the big
factors. And the three should be
considered in determining the cost
of i \i ry individual piece of goods.
When the cost of labor is being
figured it is difficult to apportion to
ps 'h different product of the factory
the proper place to it as is the case
with certain basic materials used.
Supply materials must be well inventoried.
Knowing the cost of manufacture,
especially in low-priced candies, is
Illl
viously necessary

The formula should specify the

bv putting \\y in bottles llavor and

stand competition.   "When a new
piece is to be placed on the market
the manufacturer will know in a general way how much to ask; he knows
perhaps from comparison with similar pieces, but he does not know exactly, and fixing price in such a manner is little better than a guess back-
ed  by  business instinct.    The new
piece is planned to be sold for five
cents.   The manufacturer who has
nol accurately and intelligently ascertained the cost of production is iu
no position to iix prices for any part
of this product whether costly, or inexpensive.   And the first thing to do
is to figure to a hairs-breadth the
cost oi manufacture, and then see
whether   he   can   meet competition
with it.   If not. better cut out making the line.   To do business at a

In a prize contest conducted by Collier s among salesmen describing the
mosl difficult sales they have ever
made, a gentleman connected with
a well known bakery in Baltimore
won second prize.   It, seems that his
firm had over a ton of fruit cake
lefl from last Christmas and as time
won on, and the piercing heat of
July threatened to spoil tho lot, the
proprietor of   the   bakery   became
Bomewhat worried, but despite his
every effort he could not move the
eake.   One day he confided his plight
to Ins head salesman, and after learn,
ing the price the baker was willing
to sacrifice the cake for, the latter
walked out and just an hour later
had sold the ton of cake.   By his initiative, and by his logical reasoning
with the proprietor of a chain of
grocery stores, the salesman had not
only succeeded in selling the fruit
eake in the middle of .July, when no
grocer, as a rule, thinks of stocking
up with  this commodity, but had
also actually  got  more  money for
the goods than his employer had ex-
pe'tid to get under the circumstances.    This was high-class salesmanship, and ought to be an inspiration
to other non in like positions as to
what, really ean be done even in the
baking husiness.
II* yon started with a small knowledge of your husiness, a careful
reading of your trade paper will
■jive you the knowledge you need.
