wee interested in them. That, was our contention. This
Victoria affair is a long affair. The Board undertook a lot
when it undertook that affair. When it. came before the committee, the Private Bills Committee, it was opposed very
strongly, and somebody moved that the report be tabled. So
the report was tabled before the Private Bills Committee. So
when it was seen how things were going Mr. Hougham asked
permission to speak, and was given ten minutes, a very short
time. Bul the result was that instead of the talk lasting ten
minutes, it lasted some hours. The final result was that the
Bill was withdrawn.

which must be remedied in the immediate future, 11 VOU are
to continue as an organization and to hold the respect and es

THE BRITISH COLUMBIA RETAILER
With which Is Incorporated the B. C. TRADE REVIEW,
i„. Therefore, you will be asked to give serious consideration also lo Lhat phase ot our work in planning some way

unless I his need is supplied W8 ean hold out no hope of being
able to continue to function, as a Provincial Organization. All
these things require money, bul having had the financing ol
this Association miller om direct notice during the last six
i,i elghl months, we have no hesitation in Baying thai if
oui membership would do their part, and remit the amount
ni their dues within s reaaonable lime, that these things
could be taken care of, and ll is for you delegates al this eon
\,ni|on   to   devise   «n)s   and   means   bj    Which   this   can   be
brought about
I have asked your attention to the foregoing extended details because the dividing line between success and failure in
this Organliatloo is a verj narrow one, and your Association

would seem lo be In s position In which it l" necessary that
those forces which we have bulll up In this Province at such
tremendous expenditure ot time, energj am. money, should
!"■ consolidated so as to obtain a maximum result ol efficiency
with a minimum ol expense
This brings no- to the actual activities ol the Provincial
Board since the last Convention, and we will endeavour to
do this first bj taking up one or two ol lhe more important
resolutions which were dealt with at the last Provincial Con-
*> ention
Resolution  I,    Cartage  Charges.     Being  a resolution  from
the Conference ol Prasei Vellej Retailers having lo do with
the charges made bj wholesale firn h This has been given s
greal deal ol attention t>\ j*oui Executive, bul bo far, without
anj concrete results foi the reason that it has been Impos
libit* to eel ih,. manufacturers Bnd wholesalers to agree among
themselves to eliminate these charges There Is a further
resolution lo be submitted to this Convention from the Ver
"on Branch regarding this Issue, and it is hoped that this
Convention will be aide io set some definite plan upon which
your Executive ean work Intelligent!}
Closing   Hour,
Resolution   No.  6.     Being  B  resolution   from   Kamloops  re
Queaiing lhe Executive lo have lhe Government permit cities
to sel lhe houi ol closing al anj hour agreed upon bj the re
tailers ol thai citj This matte, was Immedlatelj taken up
bj your Executive with the Legislature and we arc glad to
"port thai our efforts were successful, and ihis relief has
now been afforded these cities, Including Kamloops, who re
quested same
Assessment   re  Original   Campaign   also   Deficit.
Resolution No. 7. This resolution authorized the collection of an assessment of $5.00 from the membership of this
Province for the purpose ol prosecuting the campaign for
Oriental Exclusion, and to assist in wiping off the deficit of
the Association. The Treasurer's Report will have something
to say aboul this as will also this report a little later on.
Weekly Half Holiday.
Resolution No. 8. This was a resolution from the Nelson
Branch requesting the B. C. Hoard to have certain action
taken in connection with the Weekly Half Holiday Act. There
were also other resolutions having to do with the question,
and we will cover them all hy saying that the Provincial
Government was approached with a view to having the Week.
ly Hall Holiday Act opened up at the last Session, but it was
maintained by them that this question was so controversial
that thej would not undertake to do so unless they received
overwhelming evidences that the majority of retailers and
employees desired ii, and while several attempts were made to
have He matter opened up, it was found impossible to do so;
however, you will he asked to consider a resolution on this
question during the present convention which will again bring
lhe matter before your Executive Officer, it* you so desire.
Wholesalers sellinn to Consumers.
Resolution No. 16. From the Provincial Grocers' Section,
having to do with wholesalers selling to any person, firm, Oi'
corporation except for resale. This is another phase of that
question of wholesalers selling io Consumers, and about
winch the Convention spent considerable time last year. You
will be asked to consider a recommendation from the B. C
Board covering this question, as a result ot* the questionairre
which vour Hoard was asked to send out to the membership
o! this province, and as this question, therefore, will be fully
discussed again during this present Convention, we will not
take ui' j*our time hy going into it in this report.
Persons entitled to vote at Municipal Elections should be only
ones allowed to sign petition re early closing
Resolution 20. This perhaps was one ot' the most important resolutions passed al the last Convention, and dealt with
the Shops Regulation Act and came from the Grocers Section
ot the Vancouver Branch, asking that the Act be amended
to tin- effect that only those people who were entitled to vote
at Municipal Elections should be entitled to sign petitions
having reference to the Early Closing Executive and we are
glad '<> report were able to prevail upon the Legislature to
have the Act so amended to include these recommendations,
as outlined in that resolution, thereby offsetting the disadvantage under which the average retailer is laboring in connection with the Oriental traders.
Re  Factory Act and Oriental Labor.
Resolution No. 22. This came from the Laundrymen's
Association Of B. C, in Nanaimo, asking lor certain amendments to the Factory Act. The recommendations in this
resolution were taken up hy your Executive with the Legislature ami practically all recommendations adopted as outlined in this resolution.
This covers the most important resolutions dealt with at
tin- las, Convention. We must now refer as briefly as possible
to at leas, two of the outstanding activities of this Association
Bince your last Convention. This being the Sales Tax Campaign and Oriental restriction.
The Provincial office has endeavoured to keep its membership thoroughlj posted on every phase of this question, as
it developed, ami you will know both from the bulletin sent
out ami also irom the press that the activities of the As
sociation on these two vital questions have been more than
SUCf eSS'lll
Regarding the Sales Tax Campaign, in January of this
year, a Special Fund was raised among the Makers and Con-
lections mostly from the lower Mainland, to send your Do*
minion Representative, Mr. Jos. T. Crowder, to interview the
Governmenl at Ottawa, on this question. Fortunately he was
able to he accompanied by Mr. Hougham as Special Representative, for the Association.
Sales Tax.
The work which thev did there has hecn the subject of
bulletins from the Provincial Office, as we!', as pamphlets
which have been sent to you from thc Provincial office, some
of which were issued irom the Dominion Office at Ottawa.
The result of these activities is seen in the alterations which
have been made in the method of collection of lhe Sales Tax
in  the  present   Budget  recently  debated on  the tlowr of the

tivities the present Bill, known as Bill 16, has non bc-com*

in thai it permits merchant.- to enter Canada, we Wen
cessful in forcing the Governmenl to add that the pntrj o
those merchants shall be controlled bj  the regulation*  .1

Immigration.    We believe that  this Is one ol  the great** 1

This is a very important mailer, and one to which j-oui execu
tive o/iicers and Provincial Secretarj  will be compelled to
give constant attention In the future.
Accomplishment of foregoing successes justifies Association's
existence.
If your Association has done nothing else since i|„. |as*
Convention, than accomplish these two things above referred
to, it would have more than justified its existence, and while
these have been the major issues there have been manj other
Legislative mailers which have received prompt attention,
and in passing we might refer to the Personal Propertj Tax

this can be obtained Irom either myself or from any of the.
Provincial officers or Mr. Jos. T. Crowder.
Necessity of Being Represented at Dominion Convention
Before leaving the subject of Dominion Cnvention, we
would Btrongly recommend that owing to the importance of
certain phases of the association's work, during the next few
months, thai one of the first objectives of your new executive
should be to see that this province is properly represented
at the nexl Dominion Convention in August at Montreal.
Vour late secretary will, no doubt, be present, but will not, in
ail probability be able to represenl you as a delegate from this
province, and we are convinced of the necessity of B. C. particularly being represented there at that time, for the reason
in order to press for some action to be taken on two issues
whieh are virtually important to the retailers of this country.
namely N.S.F, cheques and Price Maintenance, and while your
Provincial Branch have endeavoured to give these matters
their beat attention during the year, it remains finally for the
actual work to be done b\ the Dominion office at Ottawa. At
the time of the las, convention, and since that time, your at-
t. f. Mcdowell
Retiring    Treasurer.
ten,ion has been called to a Hill which was then before the
House in Ontario, which would have prohibited and severely
penalised anj firm or corporal ion who endeavored to set and
maintain a resale price on any of its commodities. We are
glad to report thai as a result ol this association's activities,
In co-operation with oilier organizations, this drastic Bill was
so amended that at the las, session of the Ontario Legislature
a practirall\ new Bill along these lines was presented, and
passed, bul which eliminated all the ridiculous features which
the original Bill contained There lias been a Bill known as
Bill Bi introduced Into the House al Ottawa having to do with
combines, etc., and which the association has been following
verj closely, bul as we understand you are to hear an address dealing with the Bill, we will not make further reference to it in this report.
rim foregoing mi relj summarizes a few ol the outstanding
features ol your association work in B. C, since you met in
convention  last  year.    If you have followed this report  even
superficially, you cannot fail to recognise the tremendous
vartetj  and scope of the association programme.
'There are a large number Of very important resolutions
Vitallj affecting the retail trade Which Will come before you
al this convention, a number ot which have been submitted
iron, the various branches in B, C, and also from the Dominion office at Ottawa, and We should see lhat wherever possible this convention denileh   instruci the incoming executive
on ih esc resolutions Instead of asking them to deal with them
without exactly knowing what this convention desires. An
important Questionnaire was recentlj sent throughoul the
province to all automotive men deallug with a large number 19,

of  questions  of  importance   10   their   particular   trade,   and
while a number have been return..1. the) are DOi 25 per cent
Of the number which was sent out originally, and our member
ship cannot expect either the Provincial Office Or the Domin
inion Board to lake action on Importanl matters ol this kind
unless they are Interested sufficiently to the extent ol even
sending back replies to a questionnaire.    As a matter Ol fact
out of some 150 questionnaires sent oul to this section in this
province, we have onlj received fifteen (15) returns
It is impossible, nor is il advisable 10 attempt to give
you a detailed report ot the work which ha- been attempted
and accomplished. We must not forget, however, the pari
which our insurance department lias played in helping th"
work of the association. At the present time, there are somt
55S policies being held bj members in the province, Bhowing
a direct saving to those who have taken advantage oi this
department.
Plans are now being matured in which it i.- hoped lo place
before those members who are no, alreadj eujoylng these
privileges an opportunity to do so. and we hope bj ihe time
of the next convention we shall be aid'- to repori .u; Increase
of at least 50 per cent, of the number ot members taking at!
vantage of our insurance privileges.
The foregoing, therefore, is merelj an attempt to place
before you some of the reasons whj the members In thll
organization should stand behind, tight for, and support in
ever}' way possible the association to which thej belong
Your executive have attended not less than 16 meetings
since the time of the last convention. There have been some
25,000 pieces of mail handled through the Provincial office
iu the way of bulletins, individual letters, etc.. whti h besides
attending numberous trade section meetings, bos kept both
your Provincial secretary ami Office staff fullj Occupied everj
minute of their available, lime.
This report, however, would not be complete i: v.- were
not to refer to the diligent and unselfish service whieh hoi
been rendered by your past board, antl whe,: you considei
that these men, retailers wit!, their own business to look
after the same as yourselves, will make the Journeys to 'lm
Provincial office, often at considerable expense, to carrj on
the work of this organization, we believe i' Is as little
as the average member could do to Bupporl them In everj
way possible when caled upon to do SO.
This isp radically the onlj reward which these men gel
and it is very discouraging io them 10 find that after all their
work and energy has been put Into some activity, that our
membership are not sufficiently appreciative even to the <\
tent of paying their membership dues, which li prai tlcallj
their only contribution to the work of this organisation
Members Cancelled.
This is the condition which applies ,o a large number of
members throughout  the  Province, and is a condition which
.this organization must meet and face ami find a remedj  for
"immediately, ami it is with a view to bringing ihis matter to
a head that on the Instructions ol your executive the auditors
have cancelled the membership ol some hi members through
out the province who wen- being carried on the aoaoclttlon
books as active raembes, ami yel were refusing to acknow
ledge their indebtedness in th.. matter ol membership dues
We would recommend verj stronglj thai this quest inn be
given consideration by the Finance Committee P Is our
opinion, after studying all phases of this matte), thai thll
Association as far as P. c. is concerned would be far better
to carry an active membership oi six or seven hundred rather
than a membership ol ten lo twelve hundred, slxtj per cenl
of whom would refuse responsibilitj when called upon

When taking over this work last tail, we were Impressed

has been no easy task either for one secretary or his staff

which must pass through the office in ihe course of a year

GROCERIES & PROVISIONS
Generally speaking retail gr r** throughoul the
province are enjoying very good business, a condition
which possibly applies more particularly to country
sections, than to tin* city of Vancouver,
Industrial activity, however, is becoming more and
more evident in nearby locations, and it is in order to
predict a big improvement in city business during ihe
next few months,
Summer resorl districts along the coasl are making
preparation for the busy months ahead, reports indicating thai summer cottages and camping sites are
full) booked up for the season, A targe influx of vis
itors iluriiii* the summer months usually puts new life
into retail trade.
Balmon canning plants are laying in supplies for
their season's requirements, Although it is somewhat
early to foreeaal the salmon pack, there is very little
carryover from last season, and indications point i*» a
!i.iv\ catch hi the north, with prtcsa ruling Bomewhal
!tt\\ er than last \ ear.
The outstanding topic of interesl amongst the trade
is the r» nt budget announcement that, commencing
.lanuar) the first next, the sales iax will be collected al
thi source of manufacture
h  is tn be regretted thai  the Finance Minister
•diould have delayed the inception of ihis change, as
present conditions may compel manufacturers of tax
able commodities 10 raise 'heir prices before thai date.
However, the retail grocer will no longer be the unpaid tax collector for the government, and it will be
much easier for him to pass ,u:y Advance in commodity
prii ea <'ii to the consumer
Sugar. Further reeenl reductions in price of raw
material bring today's quotations down to $10.30 per
cwt,   While the general trend of the sugar market is
easier, tor cannot help hut feel lhal the import 81 ion of
South American sugar in large quantities by the jam
manufacturers has had some effect in bringing down
the price locally. It is to be hoped that the present, or
a lower level will prevail throughout the preserving
season. Indications point to a large crop of B. C. fruit
moving into consumers hands during the next few
months.
Flour.—Local quotations and No. 1 patent, whole
wheat and Graham flour were reduced 20c per barrel
on June 6th last.
Beans.—To-day's prices on Kotonaslii fancy white
heans are 5%e. a pound, while plain or speckled Bayo
beans are retailing at 4*-jc. a pound. Early in the
month a stiff advance was recorded on the Oriental
markel. which will reflect on local prices on shipments in transit.
"Certo."—Certo is a new product on this market,
although it has been sold on the American side for the
past two years. It is a fruit pectin, and is of great
assistance to the housewife during preserving time. It
adds body to the jam or jelly, and in addition to increasing the output, it eliminates a lot of time which
is usually spent in making preserves. It is manufactured by the Douglas Packing Co, of Coburg, Ontario,
who arc predicting a large sale here. The wholesale
price is $7.20 per case of two dozen Soz. bottles, retailing at 40c a bottle.
Cereals. There is no change in cereal prices, although there is a rumour afloat that two well-known
brands of corn flakes are due to advance in the very
near future, hi view of the biyr summer demand of
these commodities, retailers will be well advised to
carry a fair stock.
Bulk Cocoa.—A delayed shipment of pure Dutch
cocoa reached the market early in the month. This is
packed in original 11211) boxes, and s going to the trade
at   11  c. a pound, and in ten pound boxes at  IO^jC.

Notwithstanding the very low price, tin* quality of this
shipment is very fine, guaranteed to contain 2<>'i butter
t'iii. Cocoa al such figures is cheap beverage, and one
lhal retailers may well feature in their trade.
Extracts.— Revised prices for extracts by local
manufacturers became affective on June 1st. They
tiro .Is follows: 2 oz, $2.25 doss,: I oz., $4.25 doz.; 8 oz.
»**. (|i>/., lti n/. $15 doz. Less In per cent, discount in
I dozen 1"'**, and 2" per cent, discount in 12 doz. lots.
Sardines. -Retailers should stock  up liberally to
protect their requirements for Norwegian sardines,
Popular brands arc now almost unprocurable from
wholesalers, and lhe new pack will not arrive before
October 1st,    la**! year's pack was very short, and
Norwegian packers can as yet give no estimate of this
season's catch.
Raisins.—The Finance .Minister has seen fit to withhold the additional duty on raisins, from other than
I'.ritish possessions, until such time as the trade a<rree-
ment between Canada and Australia has been concluded. This has had lhe effect of wholesalers putting
their prices hack to the old level.
Jam.—Local manufacturers of jam reduced prices
on ihe first grades 50c a dozen on June first, with the
idea of moving into consumption the carryover of last
season's pack. It is presumed that the opening prices
on 1M2*! pack will he about the same as present quotations.
THERE S NOTHING THE MATTER WITH B. C.
Thi-!'- is mirel) everj reason why the retail grocer
is justified ui anticipating a period of r*a!!\ good bus-
nh-ss. Read whal Duncan M. Macdonald, of Kelly
Douglas ».v Company, has lo say about tins province.
The greatest ass<t the citizens of British Columbia
ran acquire today is optimism and conndence in the
future Too many hold to \U*- gloom ol pessimism, absorbed during 'he long period of readjustment through
which they have jusl passed, and Ihey are now finding
it difficult lo adjust then- mental attitude to tin* improved conditions now confronting them.
Prospe 'ts were never brighter, and business conditions for the immediate future are most encouraging.
The iiutst importanl industries in the province are gen-
M-,i!l\ eoneeded lo be in a mon satisfactory condition
than thev w< re n vear ago, whilst the wholesale and retail trad'- show itn impon'emenl over the corresponding period for last \ ear,
While the increase in the volume of trade has not
been of great dimensions up '<• 'he present, still it is
noticeable, and coupled w ith low stocks and the exodus
from "Hand to Mouth" buying methods, it is easy to
predict a considerable movemeni ot merchandise within the next f( w mouths.
One of the greatest indicators of increased husiness
is thr extensive construction and development work
now being carried oul. Expenditures on roads and
bridges lotal $4,000,1)00, harbour works, docks and
pi.Ts, $10,000,000; elevators, $2,500,000; pulp and paper
nulls, $10,500,000; factories, business blocks and gen
era! construction work, $6,000,000: public buildings,
-..',000,000; and private residences, $1,000,000, or a
*-".md total of $37,00,000
This new work provided B, C. materials and labor
arc employed, means increased production For many
industries, and the constant circulation of millions ol
dollars within the province, which will leave some benefits with everj individual through whose bands it
passes,
In the agricultural industry, with prospects ol n
good crop and improved marketing conditions, the
farmers are confident of a better year. Conditions in
the lumber industry nre excellent, all the large mills
working to capacity and hooked with order**, for many
months ahead. Two new pulp mills are in course of
construction at Elko and Nelson, the total outlay being
in the neighborhood of $25,000,000, whilst the erection
of four other mills is contemplated.
The mining industry is undoubtedly coming into a
new period of activity. Many mining companies are
being incorporated daily, and this means new capital
for development purposes .The Britannia mines which
were practically shut down last year, are again in operation, and this means an additional payroll of over
$1,000,000. The new bounty on copper rods means
the expansion of that industry, with another increase
in payrolls.
Turning to the fishing industry, practically all of
lasi year's pack has now hecn disposed of. and there
w ill be ;i very small carry over. The curtailment of the
Oriental fishing licenses will not interfere with production. With a gratifying increase in 19*2*2 over the
previous year, canners are confident of a good run of
fish this year.
The shipping industry is increasing by leaps and
bounds. The grain and lumber export trade alone, will
ensure that this increase is maintained, while the advent of more ships means many dollars to be spent on
the products of the province. Every vessel that enters
the port of Vancouver for complete loading expends
;it least one dollar ;i ton for supplies and refitting, pays
port dues, gives employment and in the case of grain
boats buys lumber for lining. With increased grain
facilities it i** not too much to predict that 50,000,000
I ushels of wheat will pass through Vancouver this year
against the 14,000,000 last year.
The manufacturing industry having weathered the
storm is now in good shape to take care of an increased volume of trade, With an increased demand and
consequential increase in output, there will be a reduction in producing costs, which should tend to enable goods to be produced for export ill <*i price that
will make their sale ahroad possible. The development
of the manufacturing industry to a large extent rests
with the citizens of the province, for they hold the
power to create the strong home market necessary he-
fore the foreign market can be invaded.
To sum up. if every citizen iii British Columbia
will absorb the spirit of optimism which present conditions justify and boosl for British Columbia in every
possible way, 1923 will he a banner year, and the forerunner of many more to come. Then our Canadian
boys and *-rir1s will no; go to other countries seeking
employment." 18
THE BRITISH COLUMBIA RETAILER

THE SUGAR PROBE
It was recently stated by Canadian Sugar Refiners,
appearing before a special committee that the cost ol
sugar in this country to the consumer is approximately
12 or 13 cents. The difference between what the raw
sugar costs the refiner and what he sells it for is aboul
two cents. Therefore what he can possibly influence
is one-sixth of thQ value to the consumer. But "tit 01
this one-sixth at least ni per eent is uncontrollable ex
pense. This leaves 20 per cent of the one sixth thai the
refiner has any influence over.
The price of sugar was based absolutely on the coal
of the raw sugar and rose and fell as this fluctuated,
but the refiners had absolutely nothing to do with
fixing this price. Since the middle of last January,
the price of Cuban sugar had advanced from •'!' j to
6--.' cents a pound in New York. Tins meant an advance of $3.25 on a hundred pounds. In the same
period the gross price of refined sugar to the Canadian
retailer had increased from $8.05 to $11.10 per hundred
It was also stilted that it took I'1" pounds of raw
sugar to make 100 pounds of refined. These and other
facts showed that while costs had increased to the refiner $3 2"> since January, to the retailer the cost had
only gone to $2.64; in other words, the refiners had
absorbed 61 cents of the increase. Tins was brought
out to show that present prices were due to uncontrol-
able conditions—advances following a greatly increased consumption and a decrease ol about 1" per eent in
the Cuban crop.

REWARDED FOR FAITHFUL SERVICE
H. T. Lockycr Appointed General Manager of all
Hudson's Bay Company Stores in British Columbia
Contempora\\eous with Mr II T. Lockyer a twenty**
iteventh anniversar\ a-* manager oi the Vancouver
stores of the Hudson's Ba\ Company, hi** promotion is
announced to the position of general manager ol the
eompany's -stores in British Columbia.
Tin- announcement was recently made by Sir Augustus N'anton. director of the Hudson's Bay Company,
and chairman of its Cauadian committee.
"Mr, Loekver is one of the oldest and mosl success
ful Btoremen the Hudson's Hay Company has had in
Canada," said Sir Augustus when confirming the appointment. "It is for 'his reason that we have decided to give him this position of larger responsibility."
Tin* decision of the governor and committee of the
Hudson's Hay Company in expending Mr. Lockyer's
jurisdiction and entrusting him with greater responsibilities places him in absolute control of the company's
stores in this province, responsible only to the Canadian committee.
Mr. Loekver has always regarded British Columbia
as the natural field for his husiness activities and, for
that reason, has on previous occasions during the past
several years refused offers of attractive staff appointments at Winnipeg,
The British Columbia stores, located at Vancouver,
Victoria, Nelson, Vernon and Kamloops, which have

ANOTHER   ADHERENT   TO   THE  MAINTAINED
PRICE PRINCIPLE.
Pacific Milk Company Ltd., distribute new product at
a fixed price to wholesaler, retailer and consumer.
The Pacific Milk Company Limited after a Dumber
of conferences with the Exeoutive Committee of the
Greater Vancouver Retail Grocers' Association, arranged to markel thru* new nulk product, "3 to 1
brand Evaporated Milk, at a fixed price to wholesalers,
retailers and consumers and have agreed to use every
means In their power to see that the price is maintained.
Their plan is to give a bonus of 50c per case to all retailers who have maintained the price and have signed a declaration to that effect, In all cases a copy oi
the wholesalers invoice musl Ih* attached to the bonus
declaration as evidence that tin* ti\.*.l jobbing price
was not cut as wholesalers arc not permitted to give

any quantity discounts or concessions .
ii(d to 1" Milk is an entirely
new product on the Canadian
market, although the standard
to which it is packed has been
in effect for a good many years
on British Admiralty requirements.
It is self evident that this
standard which requires fifty
per cent greater concentration
than ordinary Dominion Stand-
:" 2 Evaporated Milk, is aneco-
nomic improvement in as much
as the consumer gets fifty per
cent more milk for a small extra cost. Obviously the cost of
cans, labels, boxes, labor and
overhead are no greater for this
more highly concentrated pro-
duet, and these items themselves represent a large proportion of the cost of a finished
case of evaporated milk.
In addition to this extra
value . '*:' to 1" milk has a
special attraction for the consumer, owing to its having been
sterilized at a much lower temperature, its flavor is more like
fresh cream and the ordinary
cooked taste is obviated.
The manufacturers depend
for their success on this new
product, upon two outstanding
facts:
First, that owing to the protected price the retail grocer
can make as much on one case
of "3 to 1" milk as he does on
two cases of ordinary canned
milk.
Second, that he can give his
customers as much value in one
tin of "3 to 1" milk as he does
in two tins of ordinary canned
milk.
CALIFORNIA RETAILERS VISIT VANCOUVER.
The California delegation to the National Convention of the Retail Grocers and Merchants, which this

Bakers' Problems
Thr future of the whole trade is
Bomewhal problematic. We are in
a Btate of experiment, The old lines
or branches of the trade are being
encroached by new- efforts in the
merchandising end. The independent wholesaler is being absorbed into syndicates thai operate under
central control. In the larger centers of population wagon retailing
is steadily growing, and this type of
business has found itself since it adopted the policy of carrying a general line of baked goods, This method of approaching the puhlie takes
from both the wholesale and counter retailers business. Then we have
the chain-store bakers making a
strong bid for sum,, of the bread
trade I ndoubtedly our future must
be approached with these factors
taken into consideration. No one
knows exactly just how much these
tow competitions have affected our
output in the last few years, pos-
sil>h   we  have  lost  a  little,  hut   the
embracing fact that should interest
us  in thai  the commercial  baking
husiness as a whole, and with these
new factors naturally included, is
increasing steadily, Now. it is
up to the various methods of merchandising to prove their merit and
h ihi ity to attract the already won
market to them. This advantage in
pi rcentage is bound to grow. The
small city baker who has opportunity to cater to the farming population surrounding him is gathering
innre of that trade right along. At
least this is so m many districts.
The eoming of the automobile has
widened his market to a large extent. Coming to town is not tho
heavy task that it used to he. and a
good many bakers are doing well
lateriug to the farming element and
using advertising space in appealing
to them. 1 think an unbiased view
w ill concede that while our competition is growing, our market is also
w idening,
Crain Store Bakeries
The chain store bakers are making
heavv husmess on bread, and publicity, lu sonic sections they are
making the going pretty rough for
the legitimate bakers. In so far as
fixed on costs, hut based at a loss
price charged againsl the advertising expense, they indulge in some
very unclean competition. Bread,
sugar, and soap, seem to e the chief
price attractions that they put forth.
Our trade has suffered recently more
than   any   other—we   contribute to
their  advertising fund,  while  they
sell other lines at profits that allow
dividends on the whole.   We see it
and feel it as a trade affair, and we
very properly resent it.   The larger
fact is that we are going through
another period in our national life
wherein large husiness combinations
are being formed to administer all
classes of business.   That conception
of life that recognized a nation safe
under the protecting infiuence of a
large and sound body of independent   producers and  tradesmen  who
each have a real stake and investment in the husiness of the country
is being challenged.   We face a future in our national life, whore, if the
present campaign is carried out successfully, the many will he the servants of a few executives.    There
will he very few boss bakers, very
few  independent grocers, very few
independent, operators in any line.
Efficiency may come, but with it will
come servility.   We see it heing attempted when we look as bakers. In
every other line those interested see
it heing attempted.   The chain stores
for handling food are but one manifestation.    It has hen tried before,
and somehow the genius of the independent operator and tradesman
has defeated it.   At least ho has continued to survive.   The co-operative
stores in Great Britain never wiped
out the independent tradesmen. But
we want to remember that it has always    taken    good    merchandising
brains to carry through and survive
and make decent  returns.    We are
challenged here in this country with
this new surge of capital combination for administration.   And I want
to tell you just this one thing that
will  keep all our heads above the
surge—and  that  is loyalty to our
own class.    Loyalty to one another
as   bakers  and   independent   operators in our line—and loyalty to our
fellow tradesmen in every other line
of life's endeavor.    You nor I cannot afford to patronize in any  way
out1 of these schemes to wipe out independent operators in any line of
trade.    Your own home town capitalized hank-your own home newspaper—your   own   home   butcher—
shoe      merchant—-tailor—dry-goods
store;  don't  you  know  that  every
one of these industries and activities
of life are being enchained?

R0 degrees when mixed.
Fermentation
I f the condition of the shop warrant a •!•'• i hour fermentation period.
ll   nia\   be  divided  BS  follows:   First
rising, 2 hours; second rising, one
hour; third rising. \-. hour.
Allow the dough to rest 15 minutes,   when   it   can   be   divided.     In
making doughs for a whole wheat
bread, the particles do not adhere
together as they do when a patent
wheat   tlour   is   used,   owing   to   the
granular  structure   of   the   flour.
whieh  prevents the development  of
the glutten to some extent. The
dough will become more tenacious
Rfter it  is mixed a  while and even
more after the dough has gone into
the trough where it is to remain during the fermentation period. Molasses has a tendency ta make a dark
crumb, whieb many bakers believe is
desirable in whole wheat bread.

AUSTRALIAN COTTON.
there is a prospeel of ;i more representative cotton
crop materializing within the empire, following the recent announcemenl that the South Australian government has co-operated with the Commonwealth government in guaranteeing cotton growers fixed prices over
n period of i hree vears.
SILKS.
Eastern houses report only a medium volume of
business and the trade generally is somewhat despondent.
There is no doubl thai adverse weather conditions
have in the main been responsible for unsatisfactory-
retail trade, and enibarassmenl lias heen caused by slow-
moving merchandising failing conversion t<> cash settlement of suppliers' accounts,
The Eastern sulk husiness is. according fo reports,
quite seriously affected by the extensive smuggling,
w hieh st ill cont iuues.
The Toronto Board of Trade have authorised the
Foreign and Domestic Trade Committee to enquire
into the quantities of goods that are being smuggled
in, the quantities seized by the government, and also
the method of disposition of these seized stocks. It is
felt that every legitimate mercantile house must have
equal opportunity of obtaining such poods, and unfair
competition must be avoided. Many manufacturers
of clothing, and also some of the large stores have
found il impossible to,compete with certain manufacturers, who, it is claimed, have connection with the
smugglers.
Printed silks of every description still continue
firsl in favor, with shortage of supply. This demand
is expected to run well into the summer, and whole
printed dresses are obtaining more vogue in this country. Cantons are easily second. Pussy Willow shares
the honors with Roshanara crepe, and knitted silks in
both pure and artificial silk are likely to be more popular than ever, especially if the weather continues cool.
Whipoorwill brocade and velora brocade are among
the lates! American offerings in this line.
English   striped   silks  for  spurts  dress are  expected
to enjoy somewhat of a vogue. They arc washable,
and the charming two-tone and three-tone combinations of light, briglvt and dark colors are admirably
adapted to the fashion of pleats.
.lust tn what extent ihe silkworm will he supplanted by chemicals in the manufacture of silk is a per-
iineui question at the present time. Artificial silk
production annually is given as 80,000,000 pounds.
which is more than half the production of natural silk,
and this figure has heen reached iu ten years. 38

U. S. LEATHER.
Statistics recently published by the United Stales
Tanners' Council are of interest as they cover the quantities ui' raw hides, calf, goat, sheep skins, and leather
dealt with in American tanneries for lt>*_)*_>. Approximately 132 million hides and skins were treated by the
tanning industry of the United State-; in 1922, as compared with 102 millions in 1921. Sole leather sides
were produced to the total of 17,700,000, as compared
with 18,062,000 in 1921, or aboul 2 per cent, less; 4
per cent, less than 1920, and 21 per cent less than for
the Record year of 1919. The feature pf the section.
however, is the decline in the production of hemlock
sides irom Tun.linn m 1921 to 70,000 in 1922. It is mentioned under ** upper leathers'" that the 1922 output of
patent leathers nearly trebled that of 1921 ami 1920—
i.e.. 1922, 6,590,000; 1921, 2,277,000 l;920, 2,400,000.
The records also deal with production costs; pointing
mit thai tanning extracts especially chestnut - have
advanced 15 per cent, without bringing increased supplies, and that the rising cost nf labour may soon he
fell in tin* tannery industry.
The market for all classes of sheep leathers is firmer, and in One class—crust skivers tanners have been
obliged to revise their selling prices and quotations for
forward delivery. The rasoii for a revision of prices is
ihe scarcity and increasing values of raw skins. Dressing materials oils, greases, etc -have also advanced
considerably of late, sd that tanners and dressers have
no alternative hut to advance their prices for the tanned ami dressed skins, quite irrespective of the fact
that the demand is exceeding slow.
A CLEVER SLOGAN
Moving into new premises, a merchant had much
more space on the second floor than the first, lie
wished to get Second-floor goods aggressively- before
the puhlie. So he adopted for his advertising, opposite his name, the words, "Upstairs ami Down."
Da.\ after day, "Upstairs and Down" was put before
the puhlie, becoming a store slogan. It was clever advert isine to sell a difficult idea. Ill

Persistent Attention Necessary to Success of Hosiery
Department.
Speaking generally, a hosiery department in a shoe
store must not 1 xpected to result in large returns at
first. This opinion was expressed by a Montreal retailer, who added: "Such a department has to be gradually developed. It can be made to *-riv»* a nice profit if
proper and persistent attention is paid to it. The department is a side line, but one which is worth while if
it is looked after. While I appreciate the value of
window and interior displays of hosiery, they can never take the place of personal solicitations, which is the
must effective method of building up a hosiery department. Possible customers often overlook the showing
of hosier}', whereas they are certain to give more or
less attention where the personal element is brought
into lorn'. Direct the attention of every buyer of
siiiie> to the fact that a stock of hosiery is kept goods
winch will match the shoes. By all means show the
goods, wherever possible because this often leads to
sales. But unless a retailer boosts this department In*
is likely tn find that the returns are small. We are all.
consciously or unconsciously, open to suggestion
and tin* suggestion implied in a display of any commodity is likely to be more and more effective if backed up b\ the personal 'ouch.
TARIFF PROTECTION FOR BRITISH IMPORTATIONS.
The reduction, involved in the new 10 per cent.
discount, in tariff protection against British importations has been received with considerable misgiving

The belief is held b\ main observers thai I'.ritish importations will be increased greatly during the nexl
twelve months, Canadian textile manufacturers and
various ether groups are fearful of increased com
I etition. the tiisi instalment of winch has already been
experienced ('anadian textile plants have been
