The pork market is down again with

Many are called but few are chosen,
when it comes to getting a job unload
ing brick from a flat car. A few days
ago the Portland Railway Light and
Power company advertised for labor
at &4 a day. Eleven men responds! to
the ad, calling at the office or the
light plant. After the nature of the
wort was explained, that of unloading
brick from a freight car to be used in
building a foundation or a new ga
generator, only three of the ten showed
up at the gas plant on Front street.
After these three took a look at the
brick and thought it over, they also
"Everyday is Bargain Day.1' Purely
a catch penny phrase, without any con
nection to the real meaning of "BA.w
GAIN DAY." The truth of "Bargain
Day " is simply this: The merchants of
Salem recognizing two fundamental-,
principles in business, "team work''
and "season clearance of stock" col
lectively adopted a given day to offei
the public the "Season's Clean Up,"
of stocks and by having one set - day,
make it worth the public's effort to
shop on that given .day.. By combining
on advertising it enabled the newspa
pers to thoroughly acquaint the public
of this move, and also by each merchant
paying his share of the advertising les
sen the cost to each.
For that event all legitimate mer
chants carefully examined their storks
and put on special tables all odds and
ends and broken lines, marked at a
price that would quickly close them out,
leaving the stock clean with full and
complete lines.
Of course, we grant the accusation
that some of our merchants took advan
tage of . the public, or tried to, and got
long profits on "inferior merchandise,"
but on the whole tho merchants played
the game square.
The difference in legitimate profits
and losses was charged against adver
tising, which all stores must do, but
such bargain can not bo given every
day, no business can do it and exist.
A bargain is understood to mean " some
thing sold at a price without profit, ot
even less than cost."
