OF GROCERS HELD
Jewish Organization Will Protest to
District Commissioners Against
COMPLAINTS TO FOLLOW
An organization or tho Jewih crocera
of the District of Columbia, known as
The Capital Retail Grocers Protective
Association, lth a. membership of about
3A. has found the trials of the local
"bread war" so irksome that a special
executho and secret meeting has been
held by thcra for the purpose of formu
lating a protest against under welBht
bread, and desiring' some effective means
of relieving then-selves of the confusion
which several prices and sUe of loivos
5s maMng, now that the public is show
lr Increased lrtcrest in the situation.
An Interesting circular in Hebrew has
I'een passed arcund amorg members of
the association, which had as its scare
bead, according to translation. "3 for M
or 4 for 10." lrdicating that they might
soon be facing a situation of "some of
jour next neighbors, ot grocers nill sell
the bread next wrck, 4 loaes ror 10
cents," at stated in the clrci'iar
By order of the association its presi
dent. Simon Gordon, the treasurer, I S
Cohen, and the ice president, Adam
Luber. all District of Columbia retail
grocers, were appointed a committee to
present to the Commissioners of the Dis
trict of Columbia a protest against the

ot loaies of briad baked by local bak
ers, and to demand a regulation imme
diately be put into effect that a baked
loaf ot bread sold to the people of the
District shall be of the uniform weight
of one pound
This action by this section of the three
thousand or more retailers selling bak
ers' bread In the District of Columbia
In but a forerunner of others that are
to come and the telling of the "bread
war" news b the Herald Is sure to
aid tho people of the District on the
More important phases of the strife
between the retatlcrs. the "bakerj sales
men," or brcad-nagon drUers, and the
bakers, who are said to make up the
so-called "Bakers' Trust," will be forth
coming with the passing ana of the
inauguration excitement, when the people
will hae mors time to set up and con
sider If four loaves of good bread can be
sold for 10 cents the three for 30
bakers will hae to meet the competi
tion, and the dav of the "double-cross"
doubling back will be here As preaicicu
