WHERE ROBBERS DEFY THE
Charlie Bryan was right dead
right when ho declared that the
only1 way Governor McKolvie could
cut the high cost of living, wasln
the licensing of the dealers In food
stuffs, but the governor held that his
pot project -the code bill would
take Care of the situation. It doesn't.
In th,e hearing being conducted under
that bill, there has been disclosed a
condition that ohght to be met and
yet it won't be the code bill can't
touch it. The robbers in food stuffs
have , been found, but there is no
power to put the brand upon their
glutted sides. The governor can listen
to the brazen admittance of robber
greed and his investigators may blush
with shame at tho seemingly de
praved nature of the men admitting
it, but he is powerless. his commis-
?lon is powerless to stop or to curb
he brigandage tho holdup now go
ing: on. ,
. Listen Juere t at the probing being
made by the . state at Lincoln last
week, Mr. Scott,, of the Stacy-Scott
commission company, admitted that
this company made .thirty per cent
net profit last year. $30,000. on a
Capitalization of .$00,000. That the
Overhead expense was twelve per cent.
Therefore every dollar's worth of
commodity reaching their hands was
skyrocketed in price forty-two per
cent. 'Then comes a Mr. Whitnack
who deals in .car load lots. He .sells
commodities .to.. the, jobber. He sells
to Stacy, -and; Scott,. .Let's ,see what,
his-taction of: tribute is before he
passes' it. on to Stacy and Scott to
take their forty-two per cent whack.
Her says in his evidence, that ho had
$18j000 invested in the products he
buys products enroute from pro
ducer to the jobber. His net earnings
were $9,000, or a nice little sum of
fifty ppr cent on the capital invested
In food stuff. This added to the hike
given by the jobbing bouse, makes a
total oX ninety-two per cent of an
advance upon everything handled by
these two go-betweens of the pro
ducer and consumer and the local
merchant hasn't been counted in.
It this isn't high handed robbery;
if.it isn't real refined and gentleman
ly brigandage, we want to know just
the course necessary to commit it.
And yet, there is no law to reach
these men who, without faltering and
without stuttering, tell uff'that they
have between them, biked the neces
saries of life intrusted to their keep-
