Secretary's  Report.
Si\ retan tt S. Hougham, in his report
pointed oul that the retail distributing
system of lite country was suffering severely from the fluctuations of the com-
men Ial conditions of Canada,
The retail irade is the highly sen
si'.i/.isl barometer that instantaneous.}
registers the slightest shock in oomnier-
'ill conditions." said Mr. Hougham, who
remarked thai when the conditions are
abnormal the retail trade "immediately
bec< mes the practising target for the
theories of men whose intentions are
probably the Nest, but who have little
praetieal knowledge of business."
Fire Insurance.
Mr. Hougham told the convention that
'S5 members had availed themselves of
the hre insurance service of the association, and allowing 35 per cent, dividends
paid to policy holders, the department
had saved retailers in the Province the
sum ot $17,922.35, which exceeded the
total cost Of administration of the association during the period.
Mr. Houghfim made reference to the
successful district conferences held in
New Westminster and Chilliwaek. He
also alluded to the convention at Vernon for the Okanagan held on February
9, and made reference to the various
towns visited throughout the province
during his tours, and their local retail
problems,
He stated that the association in this
Province has been passing through a
tune of exceptional growth notwithstanding. Last year at this time the membership stood at ss:1: at the end of June
last i; stood at 1.17-H. distributed in the
membership of thirty-three branches,
making a net increase of 294, Thirteen
new branches have been added to the
list during the year and other centres are
in line for an organization at an early
dale. Changes had been made in the.
provincial ol&ce 'arrangements ,of the
association, and the segratton of this
office from Vancouver branch had made
is possible to give more attention to the
outside bran ''ies than was formerly possible.
Dealing with the resolutions calling for
consideration of the ('onvention, the Provincial Secretary emphasized the import
ance of the Personal Property Tax issue,
describing in considerable detail the Executive's activities in endeavouring to
have this tax removed. It was evident to
the entire Convention that everything
humanly possible had been done to persuade the Provincial Government to
give serious attention to the Association's recommendations in this line.
Shops Regulations.
Another important resolution which
would concentrate the opinion of the
members on political issues thai affect
the retailers in this province and which
will be dealt with by tlie convention, Ml*.
Hougham pointed out, was that dealing
with amendments In the Shops Regulations Act; compelling iplaces of husiness carrying more than one line ol
goods to BBgrate that portion of their
goods   which   the)   could   UOt   sell   after
hours  prescribed  In  tin   Weekly  Half*
Holiday Act.
Comment was made also on the action
that had been taken ami which was pro
posed  by  the  executive  regarding  tho
standardisation oi trades,    it was felt 168
THE BRITISH COLUMBIA  RETAILER
that some sort of recognised standard
should be establish! d to define retailer.;
Some effort along the lines of persuading wholesaler's to sell only to retailers
had been made during the year, and In
on" case the wholesaler had notified the
association that they had ceased to sell
to auj but legitimate retailers.
Mr.   Hougham   described   at   consider
able  length  thi-  Association's  activities
in connection with Oriental penetration,
it   being   tvident   from   his report  that
Hritish    Columbia    had    succeeded    in
awakening the rest of Canada, at  leas*
so far as the retail mereaants were concerned, to the seriousness of th ! continued Oriental immigration to the Domin
ion.   The report on this subject shoved
that upon the occasion of the Intro lu 'tion
of the McQuarrie Resolution into the F d
eral lions,- on April-sth. the Retail Merchants' Association of Canada had mob
ilized   Its   entire   organization   from   th
•Ulan-tic to the Pacific, and had succees
ed in creating a sympathetic attitude In
the  House of Commons  through  urgent
representations made by retailers all ov r
Canada to their respective merofoers
Among other matters touched on were
the necessity for amendment to lhe Hani-
Ac; and proper protection for retailers in
connection with NS F cheques, In this
connection the Secretary stated thai the
subject bad become so stab- th.u th \-
ai elation should either rettis.- to enter
tain any further resolutions along this
line, or else compel action at Ottawa.
New business for the association'}! ■ m
Bideration was suggested along thi line*
of some method of keeping a record ol
the removal of householders from plai ■■
to place for the protection ol retailer*!
extending < redlt.
Concluding his report, which occupied
one hour fifteen minutes In presentation,
and was received by a standing vote of
appreciation, the Secretary stated thai
the reporl was a record of thin-.- al
tempted as well as things accomplished,
but was chiefly Interesting to him, at any
rate, and probably to the general mem
bershtp of the Association, as Indicative
of the comprehensive nature of the **er
vices demanded by tlo* membership Individually and collectively.
The Secretary remarked that the critic-
Ism was frequently heard that the As
sociation's activities were largely vision
ary and lacked practical and constructive application.
Ii was probable that there was a basi-
for this criticism, but it became necesary to remind the membership thai all
organisation work, by Its very nature,
was largely idealist.ie because it is educational.
it was one thing for a i onv. ntion to
pass a number of resolutions demanding
this or that condition to be remedied,
but it was quite another thing to carry
out these wishes with wisdom and discretion, Further, it was unfortunately
true that the greater part of the Association's time, money, and energy, had to
lu expended. Rrstlj on maintaining membership, and secondly, on preventing the
retail trades from being taxed out of existence, which was literally what was
happening in a large number of cases,
The Secretary hoped, however, that
the foundation laid as Indicated by bis
report, would rentier possible in th,". f,,..
ure the devotion of more time to practical service and be conceived it as the
major iasl< of the Convention to so pul
the Association's   house  in  order as  to

D.iryl  H.  Kent,    Vancouver,   elected   1st
Vice President,  B,  C. Board   1922*3,
Reorganization  of Provincial  Branch.
As touched tupln in greater detail in
this issue, a Iontr discussion in committee
look place on this subject and it is fully
expected that the decisions reached will
BO tar to making the Association's work
in British t'oluinbia of greater personal
interest to the general membership out-
sid" the larger cJtiee, who have, up to
the present time by reason of the nature
of the Provincial organization, failed to
maintain persona! contact with the work
being done at the Provincial head office.
This matter is the subject of an editorial
article In 'his issue.
•I. T. (fowili-r. pasl president of
the organization, stated that everything iu the *w;iy of persuasion and
argument had been (lone with the
.government without result, and thai
the objectionable lax still remains.
It seemed to him that the present
government will only listen to poli-
ii *al argument and he felt that the
time had arrived when the retailers
should put a candidate in the field
iu opposition to the government.
We are opposed to husiness paying
for the cost of schools, because business does not go to school. We are
opposed to ,thi* personal property
tax, but we are not opposed to taxation," Mr.  Crowder declared.
Executive Officers Elected.
At the concluding session the following officers were elected for the
coming year: President. Harvey
Murphy of Nanaimo; first vice-president, Daryl If. Kent. Vancouver;
second vice-president, Herbert Kent,
Victoria; third vice-president. A. P.
McDonald. \e\v Westminster; treasurer. T. P. McDonald. Vancouver:
representative on Dominion hoard.
,T. T. Crowder. Vancouver.
Sales Tax.
During the convention a great
deal of time and thought were given
to consideration of the sales tax and
finally a unanimous resolution was
passed declaring the tax unfair as at
present levied. It was thought that
this tax should not he applied at the
point of contact between the producer and the consumer, bul should be
collected at the source of importation and manufacture, Representations \\ ill be made to the government
along this line. A correct elassifiea-
1 ion of retailers, will be made and it
will be urged that the retailer be relieved of the liability to collect the
sales tax.
Pedlar's Licences.
Another resolution provides uor
taking steps to protect tlie retailers
in unorganized districts againsl the
competition of pedlars. It was held
that pedlars should pay a licence
tax to or greater than the retailer.
A fight will be made for protection
against   Chinese   laundry   compeli-

tion, it being pointi d out that the
laundries operated by white men
wen* handicapped through the long
hours the Celestial conducts business.
The motion by Victoria delegates
that the provincial offices of the Association be transferred from  Vancouver to Victoria was defeated.
Official Banquet.
The annual official banquet of the
association was held al the Veterans
of France clubrooms after the afternoon session, when community singing was led .*"! Bob Webb, and an ad
dress Mas given by \b\ W. .1. Hind
ley. educational director for th-*

declared that lhe modern methods of

Oriental Immigration
Secretary Hougham's Report to Convention
r'reted
I -122 3.
This resolution dealing with this
subject was otic of tin- most important   a;   last  year's convention  as i.
dealt with Oriental Penetration. In
this connection as was the case also
with  lhe  Personal  Property Tax  is-
sue. the membership has been frequently advised by special bulletins
of the activities of your Association,
but in addition to the information
thus supplied, it is necessary that
emphasis should be placed upon the
very satisfactory progress made to
date.   The word "satisfactory" is
necessarily a relative term, and
must be considered in its relation to
lhe magnitude of the question involved. Further it must he recognized that up to quite recently no
other part of Canada has given any
serious attention to this subject as it
lias been   considered  an  exclusively
British   Columbia   problem.    Vour
delegate to lhe Convention at Winnipeg last year presented the resolution passed by your Provincial Convention at Duncan, amplifying it
with considerable amount of descriptive data which gained nation-wide
publicity, some of the information
being reprinted in journals as far
east as Xew York. Vour Dominion
Board adopted the resolution submitted   by   this Board   with   entlius-

Co.opeTPtion of Attorney-General.
With this idea in mind the co-op-

such a way as to arouse hisjenthusiastic congratulations upon the eom-

In view of the fact that the Provincial House had unanimously passed a resolution similar in intent to
that called, for by the Federal House
committment, am! also in view of
Mr. Manson's welbknown persona!
views upon it, it was thought advisable that Mr. Manson should suggest io tin- Minister of Immigration

opportunity of visiting I'ritish Columbia and gel a first hand acquaintance of the magnitude of this question Mr. Manson readily adopted
this suggestion and covered the provincial office with a copy of the exchange of telegrams between himself
and the Minister of .Immigration.
The Minister gladly accepted the
suggestion nf the Attorney-General
ami correspondence is now being exchanged between the Honorable the
Attorney-General and your Provincial omVe with a view to planning

What is the Grocer going to do
with the Russian Ruble
i
of the Grocery Business ?
ililv
Post '*.--
'?**!> es
ANY banker can tell you that tho Russian Ruble business is ter
ribly dull. Why?  No demand!
An artist, with a peculiar sense of humor and too many
Rubles, decorated his studio with a few thousand of them Hi*
thought they were cheaper than wall paper.
And in many grocery stores throughout the country, one can
find another unique, but costly wall decoration unadvertised
and unknown brands of grocery products.
You won't find POST TOASTIES,  GRAPE NUTS,  IN
STANT POSTUM or POSTUM CEREAL inactive on the shelf
cf the retail grocer   because the Canadian Postum Cereal Com
pany guarantees the sale as well as the quality of these four
popular products.
When a concern like the Canadian Postum Cereal Company,
Limited, guarantees, it knows pretty well what it's doing.
A year round publicity policy   systematic and uninterrupted
together with quality of the highest degree at reasonable prices
to the consumer, insures Consumer Demand.   That as
sures the Canadian Postum Cereal Company that their
Guarantee Policy is a safe one.

Carnation Milk  Features Klondike
Gold Rush in Forceful Ad. Campaign
The lure of th,- "Trail of '98" and
the days of the great Gold Rush
have been featured as a timely tie-
up, because of the celebrations of the
twenty fifth anniversary of the tirst
gold shipment from the Klondike, as
the opening gun of a new campaign
which the Carnation Milk Products
i ompany is start ing in British (!ol-
liinhia.
A sixty inch advertisement in lead-
in0: newspapers in the Province
shows interesting views of the packets Rscending the Ohilkool pass;
sledging across Lake Bennetl;
Awn's store at sheep Camp; and
an old scene in Dawson. " Affections
of Sourdoughs Won in Gold Rush
and Still Retained" is the caption
nf the st,,ry which tells how Carnation was n pari of the equipment
of the miners who opened up the
treasury of the North and how it has
been the general milk supply for
that i*' gion ever since.
\ttractive pictorial window posters have also been provided for dealers so that they can tie up their
stores with the newspaper advertising and impress upon the public the
facl they are some of Carnation's
"Modern Milkmen."
During this campaign which will
last intensively for three months,
dealers have been urged to make
liberal use of window and counter

himself and trade association meetings are, therefore, absolutely essential to even temper and open mind.

PAINTS AND OILS.
Por the first time in many months
an advance has taken place in the
price of paints and varnishes. This
advance can be attributed to two
reasons, first, the increased cost of
materials entering into the manufacture of these products and the
ruling thai manufacturers are in future only to charge the retailer two
and it quarter per cent, sales tax.
While an advance in price is fell to
be warranted, very little has actually
occurred.
Prices on While lead have advanced twenty-five cents per hundred
pounds. All house paints, porch
floor paints and high grade varnishes ten cents per gallon. On shingle
stains and cheaper lines of paints
and varnishes five cents per gallon.
A slight readjustment of prices has
also OCCUred ill specialties, such as
varnish stains, interior oil stains, etc.,
Reports from all quarters seem to
point to a strengthening of all raw-
materials used in the paint manufacturing industry, and there is nothing at the present lime thai would
point to lower markets for some time
to come.

30% OR 70% WHICH ?
A noted authority on foods declares that
70% of the American diet should consist
of Bread.
But cold figures show that Bread makes
up only 30% of the nation's diet.
You can be a powerful factor in promoting the economic life of the nation, and
at the same time put your business on a
solid basis.
Simply bake Bread so delicious and
wholesome that the eating public will
just naturally increase their Bread consumption until it reaches the 70   level.
A vital point to remember is that the
best Bread is made with FLEISCHMANN'S YEAST-the quick dependable worker—best for 52 years.

Processes and Hazards.
Tii. baking industry may be 'li
vided nit" Iwo general classes, name.
I), bread bakeries and cracker bak-
i pies I trend bakeries produce bread
and often pies, cakes and doughnuts, all nf which arc more or less
perishable products. Cracker bnkeriea produce hard and soft erack-
• ps, plain .'nil! fancy cookies, etc.,
whieh jit''' lo a certain extent of n
non perishable nut ure, The distinction between the two classes is well
defined in thc baking trade and one
plant i a rel) produces bol h classes
of goods The imu materials used
and t be processes of manufacture arc
so cioseiy related however, that a
close distinction between them will
not be made in this paper,
Raw Materials
I' lour is the chief ingredient and
is usually shipped to the plant in
bags hy the carload. Sugar and sail
are also received in bags, the other
raw materials eome in various containers such as barrels, wood and
paper boxes, metal cans, bags, etc.
Often these raw materials arc stored
in large quantities in the basements
and other convenient floor space in
the main buildings. It is much better practice to have these materials
kepi in ii separate storehouse built
for that purpose.
Flour Blending.
The flour is frequently a blended
mixture of several goods brands to
get it proper and uniform percentage of gluten and starch. This may
or may nol he done ai. the plant.
The operation is cue of sifting and
mixing and tithes place inside a
u ood or metal enclosure. The blended flour is conveyed mechanically
to bins or hoppers which fo\n\ the
dough mixers. The sifting and blending present a slight dust hazard, hut
one nol serious if well arranged,
Bag Cleaning.
After the contents have hecn re-
iuoa I'd from the flour bags, the dust
ma) be shaken out of the bags by
hand or the bags may be suspended
in ;i bag-cleaning machine which
heats out the dust and blows it into
a suitable receptacle. This apparatus is tightly enclosed nnd none of
the dust escapes to the room. Thc
use of such a machine is important
from the point of cleanliness as it
prevents large quantities of dust
from collecting on the floor and
about thc room,
Dough Mixing.
Dough  is mixed in mechanically
driven   mixing   machines,   usually
Imjlt of one to live barrels each. The
mixing   drum    contains    agitators 790

It there is a story above, there
should I"' a freely ventilated space
"l at least 12 inches between the
top of the oven and the ceiling.
Stationer) ovens located in combustible buildings should have special foundations and should be pre
ferabl) located on the firsl floor.
The oveus should be set on incombustible floor and wood-flooring,
joists, beam.s, girders, etc., should be
removed for not less than 3 feel al
the sides and back and not less than
f feel in front and be replaced by
■oncrete and steel brick arch or
other incombustible construction.
Thi* ceiling o\ er the o\ en should receive precisely the same treatment
and there should be a clearance of at
least 12 inches between the top of
tin* n\en and the ceiling.
If a wooden ceiling is allowed to
remain over the top of an oven,
there should be a well ventilated
clearance of al least I feet- Xo wooden partition or other combustible
materia] should he allowed near the
ovens. The charging door through
which the material to be baked is
fed usually consists of a long hori-
rontal opening about Is in 'lies high.
A metal hood with a metal vent pipe
communicating to the outside should
be provided over this opening to
earn off heated nir and gases which
, s ape vi hen tin* door is opi n. This
is ven important when the eeilinn
above is combustible, as sumeienl
heat frequently escapes through
this door to ignite the ceiling above
or other combustible material near-

Ovens whi *l* extend through two
floors     such
is     reel   OVeilS,  should
"I'Viji    o»V>-
have the same sort ol cfA*!vra*\iOe
v ided a' each floor and the ceiling
as specified above. Frequently ovens
are fired iron the roar, in \\hieh case
tin* firing space of It' feet or more
between Ihe back of the oven and
the wall should be entirely of lire-
resistive construction. This is a
good arrangement from the point ol
cleanliness, as the fuel and the ashes
are kepi  away  from  the goods in
process.
Portable ovens are not considered as safe as stationary ovens. They
have usually double sheet iron walls
packed with insulating material, and
arc supported by a metal frame on
iron legs. The tire-pot, and ash-pit
may extend down to a few inches
above the floor. They are frequently set in the corner of a room with
very slight clearance to wooden partitions. Portable ovens vary greatly
in size and construction, therefore
the degree of protection varies. To
insure perfect safety practically the
same precautions should be observed
as prescribed above for stationery
ovens.
Inside chimneys used in connection with bake ovens should have
brick lined walls not less than 8 inches thick lined with one inch of fine
tiling. The throat area should be
sufficient to prevent undue heating.
Outside chimneys may be of metal
provided they are self-supporting
have ample clearance to combustible material. Fuel should bv kept.
outside or in an incombustible well
ventilated vault or bunker.
Ashes should be placed immediate!) in metal barrels and removed
from the building. Ovens, chimneys
and Hues should be thoroughly cleaned out at frequent and regular intervals. Space at the top and all
sides of the ovens should be kept
free from all rubbish or storage oi
any nature.
Doughnut   Kettles.
Kettles for frying doughnuts,
crullers or fried cakes have been thc
source of many bad tires. These
kettles are almost invariably heated
by open flame and if not closely
v atehed the fat becomes too hot or
boils over, resulting in a bad lire.
These kettles should be located in
a specially built cut-off room of fire-
resistive construction. Floor and
eeilina should be incombustible
Floor should drain to a safe
place outsldte. Door opening to
room should have a curb or
-ill -I inches high. There should hi'
metal hoods over the kettles piped
to carry the heat fumes outside. The
kettles should be substantially constructed and well set and should be
equipped with thermometers and
thermostats to indicate and regulate
the temperature of the fat. In some
cases overflow pipes terminating in
;, safe place may be used lo sal'e-
guard the kettles.    The safest  form "92

means just what it -ays, a Bav ing of
the light of day. This means t<> the
worker thai he has a lessened eye
strain, with the eonseouence he can
do better work with hss spoilage,
has larger piece vvork earning, can
produce more because when dark

who mearely cannot figure out the
