THE HOME MERCHANT
(Poise, Idaho, Statesman.)
A merchant of John Day, Oregon, Trj
G. Hoyce, has been giving serious
thought to the problems of the local
busines-s man that are occasioned by the
mail order competition. He declares'
that but we'll give readers the story
in his own words:
I was selling lloyal Club tomatoes at
l.'i cents per can, and the news went
forth to the wholesale house and so
they came and bought all but two oases
from me. I was informed that I would
have to sell them at (1 cents a can or
three cans for 5(1 cents. I was pleased
at the profit at l.'i rents a can. I was
selling Oortiun American coffee at i!0
cents a can. x The house bought all of
taut except eight cans and I was in
formed that I must sell that at .'i" cents
Now the Kagle (local newspaper)
lias freipieiitly ripped the home mer
chant up for not advertising prices like
the I'.italoguo houses do. Hut I am here
to tell you that the catalogue mail or
der house has the top hand over the
jobber, and the retailer as well, be
cause the mail order house can deal in
seconds mid gather junk from nil parts
of the globe. As they have ninety-five
million customers' they .tie sure to clean
up and unload anything they gather.
With a home merchant his goods must
bear inspection or they will stay 011 the
shelves. If the jobber hands lis goods
that will not bear inspection lie gets
them back and wc get a credit memor
andum, but with but one article in 11
place, from .1 mail order house thev can
dump a trainload nf undesirable goods
and !Ki per cent of it will never "0
So Mr. Mail Order house comes along
to our customers ami sells them a
thing that iJmks like what we are of
fering for Hindi less. Some will say
that it is the same thing, while others
will say th.it it is not good. lint the
mail order house gets the business and
the cash while we have to contend with
the "jaw bone" trade, in order to
ger a living profit and maintain the
price placed 011 the private labels bv
the wholesale house.
In proof of my statement we had to
give up h'uynl Club goods .ind German
American coffee. Hurrah for the free
dom that we are giving up dav br
The local meidiant, therefore, "must
not only "make good with good goods"
in conipctiion often with "seconds"
bought "unseen" but he must often
sell at prices dictated by the whole
saler while the mail order house is
subjected to no such aibitrarv control.
Other points nie that the loc.il mer
chant helps to maintain local govern
ment: that he aids in all public mat
ters final subscription lists to good
roil, N; that lie pays salaries to men and
women nt home who buy from the farm
ers .ind others; that lie is a big factor
in upbuilding his community.
How much does the mail older house
spend in your Iowa
How much interest has it in its welfare-
On life's tossing sea there are many
contrary bicezes that puncture your
dnanis just as the vagrant winds of
years nun burst vour snip bubbles.
That five-cent restaurant 'fop ed to
iiiu oiisiiicss tor la.-U of customers is
another sign of prosperous times.
