A
i ii these urticlis arc quite in order.
because if there is one principle thai
guides the btunan mind more than
any otln r. on the subject of taxation,
it is tin   principle that a tax is a
good tax lhal tlie other fellow pays.
Most pi ople ha\ e not pot beyond
Ihe elementary stages of thinking on
the subject of taxation, and for the
peace of mind of the great majority
it is jusl .is well that they remain in
this condition Superficially the consumer pays a!! tin taxes, but actually
there arc rnan\ artificial harriers
which prevent the theoretically even
flow of laxes from producer or manufacturer to the consumer,
In the ease of the Sales Tax. which
is apparent l> hi coming a popular
revenue raiser in the minds of more
than one government, and whieh has
been inert ased l)0(, m < 'anada. it is
a fair and conservative sbatomeiit to
make lhat 50' I of this Sales Tax has
been absorbed by the retailer. It is
not thai Govemmcuts wish it that
way perhaps, s,. much aa that the
knife edge of competition makes it
compulsory, Pimiliee Ministers and
their technical advisors know little
aboul buying articles by tho dozen
and selling them one at a time, and
('hoy are t.i be excused, therefore, it
thev argue in general terms that the
consumer pa** s ihe taxes.
Criticism of the principle of tax
ation embodied in the Sales Tax is
more or less futile, and we would be
wise to devote a little more attention
to studying its practical effects. One
of two tilings seems inevitable. (Perhaps both of them are'1. The first
is that the capable shrewd retail merchant will sooner or later find the
going too rough and will sell out to
hss capable and perhaps less scrupulous retail distributors. The public in this ease will inevitable suffer,
and they will not recognize what has
happened until they begin to experience an inferior type of service. This
remark, of course, applies more particularly to the independent retailer
controlling a moderate sized business, which lie has built up through
hard work, expert knowledge and
efficient service. The public is far
better served by this type of store
than is generally realized. There are
advantages enjoyed by the Departmental store which make a certain
appeal to a certain section of the
public but the discriminating buyers who like to be personally waited
upon, and their individual tastes
catered to. recognize the place ami
function of the expert retail storekeeper.
It is not too much to say thai the
accumulation of taxes, of which the
Sales Tax is bill a part, make it necessary for any business to earn at
least 10% upon its eapital investment for the (iovcrnment before se-
cui'iui*;  anv  return   for  itself,  and !;.'

THE BRITISH COLUMBIA RETAIf-EK
ni.'s   \\ :
there are still left occupations ami
lines ef business which are not tllUS
penalized, and it is to these that the
etti-orgetic capable retailer will 111-
evitably turn his attention.
On the other hand the Salea Tax
and other forms of taxation are not
without a by-product of value, iii
that they are compelling retail merchants everywhere to abandon
"catch as eatch can " business mere
ods, because they are compelled to
figure overhead in terms of taxes.
even though they had never figured
them in any other way before,
The den.sion of the r^inancc Minister to sera]' tic* regulation requir
iiiLr stamping and branding of goods
with tin* name of the country of origin is on thr whole a wise one If
it were possible to carry out such a
regulation efficiently something
might be said for it. but in actual
practice it would be found to i»,. nn
practicable, and would lead to ui!
sorts of evasions and subterfuge,
Any tax or legislative enactment
that has a tendency t" drive otherwise honest citizens to petty d p-
tions, st a in Is self condemned.   .
From the point of view of the Retail
Merchants1 Association there are two
items of outstanding importance in
the   Budget,   om-   of   which   is   ion
tained in th.' regulation which sped

Hii'i Dominion Secretary Trowern,

in spirit and the substitute of the
term * elective restriction" for
" total exclusion did not weak' n

nnnecessarv offence, committing the
i '<••>ernmenl to an impractical policy.

Mr. Ma Ken'ie KillK " I have ill

short of exclusion other than the
words 'effective restriction.' "
Mr. Manion- "Could not 'effective restriction' be variously in>r-
pr 'ted by various people .'"
Mr. MacKenzie King: "I do not.
think there can be a doubt as regards the intention of the governmenl in the mind, of any one who
roods the debate after what I have
said this evening, and after what
tl e Minister of Interior i Mr. Stewart has said. I think it must be
perfectly clear both in our use of
words and in the phrases and every
expression we have used.
M r. ('lark. " Does the lion, member not suggest that the present restriction is not effective?"
Mr. MacKenzie King: "Most decidedly so I think the present restriction is not effective; the gOVei'll-
mcnl is prepared to seek to make it
effective. That is what we wish to
do."
following up the energetic policy
initiati tl by the Executive of the l>
C. Hoard, an interesting session was
held with the Honorable A. M. Man-
son, Attorney-General for British
Columbia, who is more than merely
sympathetic to the policy of "effective restriction" of Oriental immigration into Canada. Mr. Manson's
views mi this question are clear cut
ami fearlessly expressed, and it was
vi ith pleasure that the Executive officers .'ml a number of visiting retailers hi ard him define* his altitude,
As an evidence of priotical co-operation which immediately followed
this address, the folowing exchange
of telegrams between the Attorney-
General and the Minister of Immigration at Ottawa speaks for itself:

The action of the I 'anadian House
of Commons in voting down a mo! ion
to prohibit the importation of oleo-
inargitte into this country (see Commerce Reports for April 17. 1922) is
of much interest to American manufacturers of this product. The opin-
n n thai Canada might develop as an
importaul market for American oleomargarine is borne out by the statis
I nder the auspices of the Grocers

\si I'AWK costs are generally admitted to be too high. In fact, recently
compiled figures would indicate that in British Columbia during the past
five vears onto 30c, out of ever)' dollar collected by tin* insurance companies from tin* property owner was paid oul in losses, whereas 70c. was rc-
!. iu<-.i for profits aud expenses.
• Ti , Retail Merchants' Underwriters Agency paid last year in Losses approx-
, nteh 30c out of every dollar collected, but paid back to the retail merchant
.;;,,• of even dollar collected. Why continue to add to tin* profits of the insurance companies by paying excess rates when an inquiry at this office will
kIiom  you how vou can keep this profil yourself1?

It has been stated by an expert authority that n
survey of property throughout the countrj reveals
lhe fact Uiat n surprisingly small proportion ol pro
perty was preeerved from deea) by means ol paint
.lll(j,',,.,, ,),,. majority of this property is being loft to
destruction for tlie want of paint
Common ""ease suggests that this position ought
speedily to he reversed.   Think ol the capital in*
vested in this large proportion of structural proper
iv of the country whieh is being left to speed) a*
struction by climatic influences,
Somebody has to pay, and it it were the fire in
surance people, prompt action would I"* taken to pre
vent the loss; the property that is unpamted is aa
surely being lost as though u were now on fire, on!)
the process is nn!  sn rapid.
Structural   materials,  protected  b)   paint,  will
last indefinitely, as the wear and tear comes on the
paint, and this ran be renewed as often -is ma) he
necessary al small cost.
Before the war the state of uur resnuics ■.:. *
tu-r and iron gave arehite ts and engineers i ausc for
anxious thought coucerning the future . now these re
sourcves are immensely curtailed aud ni •■ li ol wli
was in being has been destroy i-ii.
Timber may grow again in the course of ".'ears
but iron, once destroyed, is lost to ns forever; it
eludes our grasp; it turns to dust, and is scattered
ovn* the face of the world iu particles too small for
thc hope of recovery,   This loss can be avoided   -
the use of good paint, which is one of the best in
vestment8, and when compared with the value of I
materials it ran preserve, its cost, reckoned as an
insurance premium, is but trifling, and while insur
ance only replaces toss, thc use of pain* actually pre
Vclits  loss.
Why then, with protection so cheap and so cer
tain is such a small proportion of perishable property
in ;i state of protection against alprt enemies corro
sion and decay!
It is because property owners do not sufficient!"
realize the faci that, without painl property will rust
and decay and become useless and dangerous, while
with paint it will be preserved, and will remain use
fill ainl safe for the purpose for which i| Ih intended
You <*annot afford to do without painting. Vou
must paint or lose your property.
All surfaces capable of being protected by paint
should be so protected as an economic n ssity ■ it is
thc only way from a practical point of view.
Why lose thiit which is so eas) to keep"
Why run risks when efficient protection is no
easv
The price of safety  is the nrm,, ,,r ,,     i

THE BRITISH COLUMBIA RETAILER
" Do You Eat Baker's Bread ?"
Learn a Capital Lesson From These
Housewives
A canvass was made recently of ten thousand house keepers of
all classes throughout the nation.
Every one of them was aske I the question: "Do you eat Baker's
Bread   and why?'
i» •   t»
Tneir answer to the inquiry disclosed the fart that only half of
them were satisfied with the kind of Brer.d they could buy.
The half who preferred to bake then  own Bread, gavo these
reasons for dissatisfaction with Baker'*-*) Braad:
"Lacks flavor"   "dry and crumbly"
"not well baked"   "skimpy on
nourishment/'
Pretty clear proof, isn't it, that QUALITY alone will switch
Bread baking from the home to your plant
Use   quality   ingredients   leavened   with,   the   finest   yeast
FLEISCHMANN'S, of course   and you're sure of quality Bread

His Duty.
W hen men ar< cai cring to the food

People are quick lo grasp thc idea

materials the ri tail baker who hn\ s
il,,. hes| of everything is the one who
iv  going ahead  and  making more
then* trade is nsuallj with the retail
grocer, while the retail baker must
••ater to all of the desires of the
housewife when it conies to baked
goods ami, as a consequence, his line
of products is so great that much
more depends on the way he carries
on his business than with the average
large machine shop, and consequently his duty is much greater than the
baker who never meets the consumer face to face.
It is with the thoughl in mind of
helping the retail baker in every way
we can that we offer these suggestions, lie is such a great part of the
baking industry and has such a great
opportunity to play tlhe leading roll
in the catering husiness that we desire to impress upon him some of the
things la* ean do to hold his place
in the industry,
It seems the world has always
known the baker. He has always
played a big part in the success of
tin* world's affairs and as time has
changed so has he changed, and to
keep up with the procession it is his
duty to always figure ahead and visualize his husiness as the consumer
would and give them the service he
would like to get himself when patronizing other lines.
The retail baker has it. is his power
to become greater and greater if he
will "watch his stop" and make it
a rule tit do everything with only
the thoughl of the consumer in mind.
FIVE  PER  CENT EXCISE  TAX
REGARDED AS DISCRIMINATORY
A strong protest against the new
• per cent excise tax on confectionery was voiced by a delegation representing confectionery and candy
industries of Canada, which interviewed Hon. \Y. S. Fielding, minister on May 29th.
Spokesmen of the delegation which
numbered about fifty and represented the large candy and biscuit inaii-
ufaetnrers throughout the Dominion,
stated most emphatically that the
industry could nol absorb the new
tax, that man\ manufacturers were
operating at a loss and they considered the tax discriminatory. ■"60
