VITAL ISSUES TAKEN UP
BY STATE RETAILERS

W. Van Fleet of La Grande, were
re-elected for the coming year.
Salem Grocer Talks
At the grocers trade division, the
first subject brought up for an in
formal talk pertained to the credit
and delivery business. Edward
Schunke, Salem, declared that 50 per
cent of the merchants who are en
gaged in business on such a basis
were brought into it because of the
circumstances of their environment.
These conditions are undergoing rapid
changes in the business world, he
W. C. Gunther, Portland, asserted
that the credit business was a great
help to the children in preventing
them from stealing from their parents.
But on the other hand there are still
those who let people get away with
goods from the stores and thereby
contribute to the delinquency of
TV. TV. Hill, Portland, brought up
the question of how some remedy
could be devised whereby customers
could not beat the merchant out of

opinion that it was beyond a man to
engage in two dt'iferent. aspect of
the same business.
Frank B. Connolly, San Francisco, 1
past president of the National Asso
ciation of Retail Grocers, declared
that the trend of business and inno
vations is ever westward.
The present executive committee of
the grocers trade division of the Re
tail Merchants’ association was re
elected for the ensuing year. The
officers are: IV. C. Gunther, Port
land. Chairman; C. H. Dickey, Ore
gon City, and Edward Schunke, of
Salem. The assembly voted that the
executive board should choose the
delegates to represent, the Oregon
grocers at the coming national con
vention in Los Angeles.
Tt was recommended at the dry
goods and department store division
that the school of business adminis
tration should send a simple quest
iouaire together with the more com
plicated one in order that each mer
chant of the state would understand
the proposition and send in returns
for gathering statistics.
Tt was also suggested that if no
response was received within a few
days, that a reminder should he sent
at the end of ten days.
W. L. Osborne, of McMinnville,
urged that merchants he more careful,
with their basements, flues and rub
bish places, to avoid fires because of
the responsibilitv they owe their
neighbors. Mr. Osborne in a talk on
insurance favored the mutual policy, |
and to some measure expressed a dis- 1
like for the forgery practices.
Mr. Osborne’s talk led up to a
general discussion on insurance in
which it was decided that, at least
75 to 90 per cent should be the rate
on inventory for the amount of in
surance carried by a firm. Profit
insurance and co-insurance both re
ceived favorable comment from the
That all dry goods stores should
be departmentized in order to deter
mine which departments are paying
and which are not, was the general
opinion expressed. Tt was suggested
that however small a store was, if it
was large enough to support one full
time office girl or bookkeeper that,
it was large enough and it would
pay to departmentize it.
The question of giving bonuses to
employees of a firm received much
comment both for and against,. No
definite rule was decided on.
,T. E. Mann, of Medford, took the
load in bringing up subjects for next
vear’s sessions. Among those con
sidered were state income tax, ped
dlers , and advance payment and
freight rates on distant orders.
The new executive committee elect
ed is composed of ,T. E. Mann, of
Medford, George Schaefers of Eugene,
W. L. Osborne of MrMinnville, J. H.
Garrett of Hillsboro, and B. E.
Sisson of Salem.
