Convention Time—Identify Yourself
In looking over the pa men of th	
trade journals, retailers hiM quickly
realize that once again it i** 'onvention lime
In ever) province, committees
have been busy preparing interesting and instructive programmes for
the benefit of members of th< retail
trade, <l«»in^ business in their ?om
muni ties,
A** n rule these programme**) are
realty good, snd worth thr time anil
mone) "i an) merchant to go and
listen to.
fhua, as spring is once more, with
us, w r make our periodic al appeal
tor attendance at the sixth annual
1 (on*i ent ion of thia branch of the A.s
In >'\*a\ lino of human endeavour,
membera of tin various trades and
professions, at least once h year,
hasten to b common meeting place,
where, through the exchange of experiences, aud by listening to nd'
dresses on the important topics of
the day, as pertaining to their own
calling, the) improve their minds,
and become acquainted with the new
thiugs that are constantly springing
up around them.
h is almost unthinkable for any
one of us to dwell in a narrow world
of routine and humdrum, knowing
only our own Bmall affairs and
thinking only our own small
thoughts, when the whole earth, an 1
the skv and sea arc filled with wonders whieh are being newly revealed
to us da) b) day.
And these new wonders present
themselves in no small degree in
every branch of retail trade, where
men of brain, foresight aud energy
,iit constantly at work to effect improvements in your daily efforts.
The retailer who persistently refuses
to attend the conventions of his fellow merchants with the only excuse
that, after all, he has a comfortable
home, and an apparently successful
husiness, and that he might perhaps
o;C\u little h\ mingling with his confreres, reminds us very much of the
snail which crawls noislessly in the
silence of the vineyards.
11 too, has a comfortable home,
huill right on its hack, into which it
returns whenever the slightest noise
indicates the approach of any living
tiling'. But occasionally, some careless mortal steps on the little shell
house, and it is all over with the
pool* snail.
It is the same with many retail
merchants.   Everything mav be rosy
* ~ a *■ *
today, bul you cannot tell what may
happen tomorrow.
Somebody may step on you. ami
your business, and then, when it is
too late, you will regret that you
had not grasped the hand of comradeship, and help of those who, in
your hour of need are equipped and
willing to help you.
So, if for no other reason than for
your own protection, and that of
your husiness, attend the convention.
For every dollar expended in going,
you will come home a thousand dollars richer in new ideas. 240

Kamloops—Convention City
Indications Point to a Large Attendance of Visiting Delegates to thc Sixth  \nnu«!

While there is little occasion to attempt a description of the beautiful
natural environment surrounding
the city of Kamloops to those of our
readers already acquainted with
this progressive inland city, a brief
history will doubtless he of interest
to the many delegates who have decided to attend the Sixth Annual
Convention of the li. 0. branch, He-

Situated where the North and
South Thompson Rivers meet, the
spot where Kamloops now stands

post of the North West Company,

existing water communications evidently attracted the original inhabitants to this territory from all parts
of the surrounding country and it is

splendidly kept streets, pavements,

and with an excellent water sen ICC

What Babson Says of Canada
World renowned statistician warns   U S. against sudden boom, predicting the possibility of a relapse
—Prefers   the   manner  in  which Canada is passing through her readjustment.
In s final re\ \cw ot his annual tu
Kpeetion trip, Roger W. Babson, em
iient I   s statistician has some m
ieresting comments \*> make on Can
mis s industrial progress I eminent
ing   of   conditions   in   the   United
States, ,\ir   Babson a   report    com
menees,    * Everywhere   people   are
talking prosperity, building is boom
ing; pnees are again advancing and
wages arc rising  A little of this is a
•/oH.i thing; but too much of it all al
"nee is dangerous, When n patient
revoeers too rapidly, ■'• relapse ma)
occur     The  business  uon  ol   the
I nited States need to remember the
warning of that old capitalist and
philosopher,   King   Solomon,   who
cautioned the business men of Jeru
mtlem that   pride goeth before de
struction and a haughty spirit before
a fall '   Personally, I much prefer
the more   gradual   and   deliberate
manner by winch Canada is passing
through her readjustment    We have
much to Learn from our northern
neighbor. Today conditions are better in the States; but unless we take
'■are, husiness will be better in Can
ada in 1924 than it will be here.
I spent some two weeks of my
trip studying Canadian conditions,''
continued Mr, Babson, "and was
ver) much pleased with what I
found    Various factors suggesl thai
tho  dominion   stands   in   about   tha
same position in the economic cycle
occupied by the United States six or
eighl months ago. If this is so we
must look for Canadian business to
improve rapidly during 1923. Tin*
farming situation is belter and more
favorable conditions prevail iii trap-1
ping the trading centers of the
north woods owing to the state of
the fur market ami the plentitude
of furred animals. British Columbia is in a more prosperous position
than the prairies. Its farmers did
fairl) well last year and the fruitgrowing sections had very profitable
yields    Lumber demand is expected
to develop tO quite sizeable proportions Even in the mining towns 1
look for a fair improvement. In
British Columbia business during the
spring months should be good.
Industrial activity in Canada is
estimated to be in the vicinity of 70
per eent of capacity. Unemployment and short time is still prevalent in some lines. Gold mining is an
outstanding exception. This line is
fairly busy and is resulting in considerable prosperity in such centers
as Porcupine and Kirkland Lake.
"Industries manufacturing goods
for human consumption or covering
are perhaps most active and have the
most encouraging outlook. The
best customers will be found in the
cities. I have in mind all of the
manufacturing centers of southern
Ontario and Quebec but especially
those producing pulp, hoots and food
products, In the martime provinces
a firm foundation is being built up
for business improvement. Basic industries arc now dull, but 1 believe
that warmer weather will bring decidedly better markets for lumber,
fish, and other local products. By
summer, New Brunswick and Nova
Scotia should look nearly as attractive to sales representatives as southern Ontario and Quebec.
"A more hopeful feeling is developing, however, in the prairie and
other agricultural regions. Better
prices for farm products art* helping
the Canadians as well as the farmers
in the States. As the Canadian farmer was slower in feeling the good effect of this increase in prices of farm
products, so, he will enjoy il longer.
It si'ins to be a fundamental principle
of economics that the dominion lags
about a year behind the States both
as to action and reaction, decline
and recovery. Hence, I say that
while today conditions are better in
the States, they may be better in.
Canada next year. Business conditions are much like a storm, they
travel across the country in waves.
Each section gets the storm; but all,
do not get it at the same time. *).!*>

Insurance Matters
Insidious Attacks on   Bona-fidc  Insuranc
.   Companies •
For a number ol years retail merchants
generally throughout Canada recognised
that they are paying a much larger rate
for their fire insuranci than the loss bj
fires in the retail class warranted A
special committee, repreaenUng the retail trade in v\i'x\ province was appoint
ed to investigate the subject, and the)
ascertained that it the) placed their fire
insurance in a Fire Insurance Compan)
who segregated the retail fire Insurance
from other risks and confined it to the
retail merchant class, that it would be
greatly to their advantage. Thr special
committee, therefore, after a careful and
exhaustive investigation ol the financial
standing of the Northwestern Mutual
Fire Association, recommended to the
Dominion Executive Council and the Dom
inion Board the advisability of entering
into a contract with the above named
Fire Association for the purpose of rendering a fire insurance service to the
members of our association. After !ur
their investigations by the members of
the Dominion Executive Council and the
Dominion Hoard, a resolution was presented and unanimously passed at the
Dominion Board Convention of our asso
eiation. authorizing our association to enter into contracts with the Northwestern
Mutual Fire Association. These con
tracts have now hern in existence for
about five years, and every condition set
forth in our contracts has been faithfully
carried out, and thr amount of business
secured by tlie insurance association has
steadily increased  every  year.
Our members everywhere report that
this service has been vers real. and. in
addition, has assisted materially in re-
during "overhead" through the very sub
stantial dividend that the Northwestern
Mutual  Fire Association  lias paid  to  its

further reduction of 40 rents a hundred wholesale.

advances have become effective on
these commodities, both lines now

from British Possessions. The former duly \v:is 2 •'*! of a eent per lb.

There is no doubl that the announcement appearing in the 1* ield-
ing Budget, relative to the imposition of the Sales Tax at the source
of manufacture, will be very gratifying to all retail merchants.
Retail Merchants' Association ol
Canada has hecn fighting for many
months to have the sales tax collected at the source. It has hecn acknowledged by all classes of merchants that the tax is a just and
fair one. but the past method of collection has hecn unsatisfactory and
cumbersome. On January 25 of this
year one of the largest delegations
that ever visited Ottawa made
strong recommendations to the Government to have the tax collected at
the source or point of manufacture.
In addition to the personal representation, no less than 3,250 cities
and towns throughout Canada sup
ported   the  delegation   by   sending
telegrams of protest.
The tax will in future be six pci-
cent. on the duty paid value of
goods or on the manufactured ens';
of home-made goods, It is proposed
to add to the lisl of exemptions from
the sales tax. raw furs, wool, tiles,
manuscripts and newsprint.
At this moment we are not quite
certain regarding confectionery
what action the Government will
take on the special 'excise tax,' bul
the Retail Merchants' Association
all over Canada is working strenuously to have this removed. In fact,
there are a number of court cases
which the Retail Merchants' Association has hecn successful in getting
stay of proceedings, and offices of
the Dominion association feel confident of bringing this matter to a buc*
Jul conclusion.
e points of interest to manufac-
s here are summarized as fol-
ows: The sales or consumption tax
shall not be payable in the following
(a) On goods exported.
(b) On sales \iy a licensed manufacturer or producer to another licensed manufacturer or producer of
goods to be used in the production
of articles for sale.
(c) On goods imported by a licenced manufacturer or producer to
be used in the production of articles

"The immediate task, as 1 see it.

and I will make recommendation*
in my report, which I hope will he

The webbing collar continues to
be a big favorite, but makers who
make both this t\ pe and the fancy
sofi collars report thai it has nol
serioush interfered with the sale of
(he latter. The opinion lm** horn ex-
pn used thai this collar competes
more **.*. ith the starched collar than
u ith other sofl collars, and it is interest ing to note that in some Quarters a small quantity of starch is
being advocated in the laundering
nf webbing collars.
Poulards, tweeds and silk a ml
wool neckwear are at present the
outstanding fabrics and they are
named in this order Uo- a definite
reason, the foulards are coming, the
t wet -lis are here and the silk and
wools arc. in the opinion of many,
going. This last statement does not
voice the unanimous opinion of the
trade. Some manufacturers still experience a good demand for the silk
ami wool neckwear, but the fact that
it is being offered at a big variety of
prices has rather soured a great
many retailers toward it, and there
is scarcity of acceptable materials
to take its place.
We now find manufacturers more
favorably disposed towards foulards
than was the case a mouth ago. They
all admit that they should he good
for spring and early summer and the
present popularity of oriental patterns in all textiles should favor the
rich paisley and madder effects in
which some of these goods are produced. Although foulard is usually
associated with the summer season
it sprang into vogue in the States
during the winter months and
should it receive an extensive showing here it will have a more favorable season for its run than was the
c.'lse OVer there.
Ai any time when there is a liking
for bright colored neckwear, printed
goods have a good chance for popularity and this spring rfie tendency
seems to favor extra bright colors.
i.t is not to be wondered at that both
manufacturers and retailers should
be a little shy in regard to prints
after the experience they had when
they were going so strong a couple
of years ago. No other fabric lends
itself so easily to the cheapening
process as do printed goods, for deficiencies in quality can be covered
up with a printed pattern that would
not gel by in woven pattern or plain
colors. But the situation is different now to what it was two years
ago. Now there is a great variety of
fabrics available and unless the quality of the printed goods is kept up
there is no necessity for buying it.
Attractice prints in either four-
in-hand or batswillg shapes arc
about the most springlike neckwear
thai can be shown, ami for this
soring   something   of   this   nature
should he very welcome to get people started towards buying new apparel. 256
The April issue of '•Footwear in
Canada'" contains an editorial comment on the style reaction in the
Canadian shoe trade which is here
reproduced in full for the bi nefil of
our readers.
"Cue reason why there has been a
style reaction in the Canadian shoe
trade is undoubtedly due to the facl
that we have been trying to pla\
the novelty game as i; is played in
the United States. But because certain merchandising methods are
successful in the States provides no
guarantee that they will prove
equally successful in Canada. Thc
conditions are differenl and therefore i: cannot be expected that the
same policies will work satisfactorily.
In the first place, the States has
larger cities with more cosmopolitan
populations ami there is therefore a
wider variety of tastes to cater to.
Costumes that attract no attention
at all on Broadway would create a
esmall  riot  on  Portage Avenue   or
Yonge Street. The element nf mil'
population that demands freakish
novelties is not nearly so large proportionately as it is across the line
Another very important factor
that has to he taken into consideration is the weather. < >ni* climate is
our own and it is not exactly duplicated on any other part of the globe.
This Canada of our is a cold country,
comparatively speaking. Our sum
mer is hut a short three months, gen
erally, while winter siarts in November and sometimes lingers in the
lap of April. The time for selling
fancy sandals and the like is in the
real hot weather, of which we average ahoul two months. In the States,
it is different. They have a wide
variety of climate and heing in a
more southerly latitude their sum
mers are longer. Down Baltimore

train with the covers on. These con
ditions radically affect the demand
for all kinds of wearing apparel, Almost the year 'round from some part
of the country comes the demand for
fancy turn footwear, beginning with
the southern beaches in January and

To the Editor,
B. C, Retailer.
It seems necessary in the Interest ol
the general public that their Legislative
Representatives should have before them
some comments upon the legislation pro*
posed in Bill No. 54, from a source thai
is sympathetic to the bill, and believes
that it provides the proper instrument
for the protection of all concerned in the
production, distribution and consumption
of commodities. The necessttj for presenting the following arguments in favor
of the bill becomes Imperative In view
of other opinions now in vour hands.
After very careful consideration of
these criticisms and a very close Btudy
of the Bill itself, we believe thai some
of the views expressed in opposition to
this measure are based upon a very superficial examination of its provisions.
The key to Bill No. fit is to be found
in the first part of section 2 which, taken
in conjunction with sections li. 7 and the
first part of 25, makes i? verj clear that
only such combines as in the opinion of
the Minister after proper Investigation
"have operated or are likely to operate
to the detriment of. or against the interest of the public whether consumers,
producers or others" are deemed to be
Combines according to this act.
This effectually disposes of objections
dealing with Agricultural and Ministerial
Associations, Law Societies, insuranci'
Companies, drain Companies etc., as it
is perfectly clear that no concern opera!
Ing in a fair and honorable manner and
for pood and legitimate purposes comes
with the scope of this bill.
it is not, as argued, because the word
"Combine" lias been "degraded" and
"used for propagating political animositj
and hatred" etc, that it has come to be
anathema in the minds of the p.-op].- bu'
because of the actual effect of many com
bines, "tacit agreements" etc. which
HAVE operated and do operate againsl
the interest of the general public. Evidence of which combinations is being
brought to light at every sitting of the
select committee of sixteen from the
House of Commons which is investigating agricultural conditions and "the relation of prices of commodities purchased* by agricultural producers and the
prices obtained by such producers for
their own products." The Investigation
of the Great Lakes steamship lines now
going  on  has  also  unearthed   practices
which the people of Canada believe and
rightly so—are unfair and tend io destroy free and open competition, thereby
operating against the interesl of a large
section of the population.
Canada has progressed not "because
men have been able to combine together" but IN 8PITE Of many "arrangements" by various groups, from which
the enactment of Bill No. 54 into law
will afford relief.
Canada i.s not and has not for many
years been "very free from unfair coin
binations," and "competition, that dear
old age-honored remedy "does not" operate with unquestioned certainty."
Many commodities are controlled both as
to price and as to channels of distribution by agreements amongst manufacturers wholesalers and many other
groups, which tend to stifle open com
petition and enhance prices to the con-
sumer.    It   is   not   necesaar)   10  eDUffier

Pioneering in Ideas.
h is the small baker that docs
(1 jug** first It \\ns a retailer, or
\wo of them, *>■*• ho first conceived tad
idea of bos cakes, The ideas of
bealth breads were all projected in
the beginning hv small bakers.
In cither case they ma;*, grow big
it thev i|u they get away from their
puhlie ami seldom do a new thing.
Changes in selling methods have all
been instituted by small bakers.
It is the privilege of the small oper
aim* to try new things and find new*
methods of approaching the public
with baked goods. The larger operators very often follow the lead of
the small baker who has shown the
way. and they at times take up a
small man's idea and organize it for
better sale and distribution. We who
are small ean put over a new thing
at small initial expense. When the
di maini talis off we can discontinue
it at small expense. Larg'T linns
have to think seriously before attempting a specialty, as both the
start and the finish may both prove
equally expensive. I have seen it
exemplified in some cases, and history may easily repeat.
The history of our past exalts the
small baker. A man in ;i very small
■ ity conceived the idea of
shipping bread whether we like it
or not. Right now in Ihis country
there are more retail or neighbor-
hool bakers than ever before. The
trade is expanding, while the wholesale husmess is concentrating as the
\ears poll by. It gives a lot of different brains to the branches operated by the smaller bakers, ami it
gives them the weight of personal
interest. This ought to readily make
up for administrative economy)
among the larger operators. In fact
it is a question if they have more
economical administration. But we
do know that given any sort of stan-
dardized production, they have lower production costs. There is but
one ideal bread factory in this country from their point of view, and that
is'thc plant that works continuously
in one of our eastern cities, and  it 264

Ever mindful of the comfort and
recreation of the workers, an ideal
tennis court has been laid out on
the roof of the Shelly plant at con-
siderable cost.
The two stables where accommodation is provided for one hundred
and forty horses are model in every
way, and a veterinary expert is always on hand.
Although motor delivery wagons
are to a great extent superceding
the horse-drawn vehicles, Mr. Shelly
who is a lover of horses, still considers them an important factor in the
bread delivery end of the husmess.
A popular figure in civic and commercial enterprises, Mr. Shelly has
gained for himself a reputation that.
will go far towards assuring the best
of service to housewives located in
all sections of the province, where
the already well-known 4X bread,
cakes and other table requirements
are known and appreciated.
In connection with the "Eat More
Wheat"' campaign, a circular letter
has hen sent by the Bread and Cake
Manufacturers" Association of Canada signed by President Mcintosh
and Secretary Trent, calling attention to what has hen done along this
line in the United States. Canadian
millers are urged to co-operate in
adopting a slogan in connection with
all advertising matter. There is no
reason why Canadian Mills should
not make this practical effort to increase the use of their own product
