BUILDERS AND LOAN ASSOCIATION.
Editor Cairo Bulletin: '
Not long ago you called attention to the
fact that an effort was being made, by the
mechanics of Paducah, to effect the organi
zation of a Builders and Loan Association
on the co-operative plan; and you wisely
said that a similar organization could, with
profit to its members, be effected in this
Since your statement to this effect, I
have given the co-operative plan, in general
some thought, and I am surprised that the
colored people of Cairo (who almost to a
man depend upon their wages for a living),
have not ere this possessed themselves of
the great advantage which would result
from the establishment ot a General Store
on the co-operative plan. This plan, in this
country, England, Prance, Germany, or
wherever it has been understood, has re
ceived the approbation of the laboring
classes, and has been successful wherever
the strict cash system in buying and
selling has been adhered to
Prof. Fawcett, in his "Manual of Poli
tical Economy," says that the co-operative
movement in England was first commenced
at Rockdale. About 1844, a few working
men in that town suspected, and no doubt
justly so, tlint they were paying a high
price for ten, sugar, and other such articles,
when they at the same time believed they
were not iree Iroru adulteration. They
therefore said, "Why should wo not club
together sufficient among ourselves to pur
chase a chest of tea and a hogshead of
sugar lrom some wholesale houso in Man
chester!" This they did ; and each one of
their number was supplied with tea and
sugar from this common stock, paying
ready money for it, and giving the samo
price for it they had been charged at tho
shops. When all the tea and sugar had
thus been sold, they agreed to divide the
money thus realized among themselves, in
proportion to the capital each had sub
scribed. They found, to their surprise.
that a large profit had been realized. Tho
great advantage ot tho plan becamo self
evident; for not only were they provided
with a lucrativo investment for their sav
ings, but they obtained unadulterated tea
and sugar at the same prices they had been
previously omigcu to pay lor tho samo
articles when thoir quality was deteriorated
by all kinds of adulteration. This associa
tion is now most powerful and wealthy-
possessing a large amount of real estate,
flour-mills, woolen-mills, etc.
But to return to Cairo. . The first stock
ot gooos neeu not uc a large one
a $1,000 stock of groceries will bo
ample. To secure tho $1,000 it is only
necessary to find one hundred men each of
whom will subscribe $10. This, in Cairo,
where the negro population is so large, can
hardly be looked upon as an impossibility;
and, tho concern once under way, it would
I am satisfied, in time, excel any retail
grocery in the city ; and tho colored people
would feel in It a just pride. It must be
remembered that there would bo no wait
ing for customers, in such a concern, or the
building up of a trade, but the customers
of tho establishment are already secured
without effort, and their patronage certain,
since they will bo for the greater part in
terested as members ot tho concern.
Tho managers of tho business must be
chosen by ballot, by tho general body of
shareholders, and since every shareholder is
interested in tho success of tho business it
is mt likely that a poor selection will be
made. If, however, dishonest and incom
petent men are chosen as managers, disap
pointment must bo expected, and tho co
operative store may turn out some
thing ' as did the Proedman's Bank.
With regard to tho distribution of the
profits a sufficient mini should at first bo
allotted to pay a dividend of five per cent
o tho capital, and tho remaining profits
should bo divided tiuarterly on the follow
tng plan : Every person, whett he purchases
NEW SERIES-NO. 312.
goods should receive one or more tin tick
ets, which form tho record of his aggregate
purchases; and the remaining profits
should bo distributed in proportion to the
aggregate amount which each individual
has expended at tho storq.
Lastly, and above all tilings, I regard it
as indispcnsible that no credit whatever
should bo taken or given, not even to the
largest shareholder. I would have no faith
whatever in any association which bought
and sold on credit. This for a number of
reasons with which I will not now troublo
I have been told that Judgo Bird advo
cated the establishment of a co-operative
store some timo ago before the colored tem
perance club. I believe that he and men of
his kind are the right men to work up this
matter among tho colored people and if
properly explained to them and understood
uy tnem, me establishment of a co-operative
store may be looked for as a thing of the
