ARE EARLY ON THE SCENE.
Already the buggy idler is mak
ing his appearance in various parts of
the Inland Empire and in one instance
at least has evinced an inclination to
take justice, as well as "time by the
For several seasons past the Spauld
ing Manufacturing company ha been
very active in shipping in carloads of
buggies and peddling them through
the farming communities. We notice
rom an article in the Wenatchee Ad
vance that they have now made a de
mand through their attorney upon the
conuv.' ::'.:nt'rs of Chelan county fur a
refund of taxes paid to the county
treasurer for the years of 1901; 1902,
1903 and 1901, amounting in ail to
$2G2.;!1. They allege that the tax was
unjust and illegal and that they re
fused to pay the same until the county
treasurer was" about to levy on their
properly and that they are justly'en
titled to have the same refunded.
The Trade can conceive of on good
grounds upon which the buggy, people
can make their contentions stick. It
is only just that itinerant merchants,
enjoying exceptional privileges, should ■
pay taxes at least the same as the es
tablished dealer, and ho far as we can
ascertain, thus have the courts always
Peddler;-; in general should be heavi
ly taxed or licensed or both. There
is no reason why they should not be
required to pay at least as much to
the support of government as the reg
ular merchant doing an equal amount
of business. In fact, more in propor
tion might justly be required of pedr
(Her.;, for their opportunities are
greater. They have no insurance or
rent to pay as has the regularly estab
lished merchant; they usually sell in
ferior goods and, being here today and
there tomorrow, do not take bade un- |
satisfactory goods and refund money,
as doeg the honest merchant; they
contribute nothing to public charitiea
or enterprises as docs the regular mer
chant; they are not in business year in
and year out, dull seasons as well as
busy seasons, as is the regular mer
chant ; they do business only in the
best seasons of the year and may con
stantlfy change their base of opera
tions to places where the demand, or
rather the opportunity, is for the time
the greatest, and finally, they help to
drain he community of its ready cash,
which they take away with them, sel
dora leaving an adequate "quid pro
quo" in merchandise and forcing the
established merchant to sell his goods
more largely upon the credit basis.
The regular merchant is obliged to
pay taxes for the commercial privileges
he enjoys under the government. Why
should these peddlers, enjoying the
same privileges, with their added ad
vantages, go untouched? Not only are
retail merchants concerned in this
matter, but all ligitimate jobbers
should be interested in cooperating
with the established merchant in any
and all steps to put a stop to this in
Thanks to the efforts of the Inland
Empire Retail Dealers' Association,
we now have a general peddlers' license
law in this state which provides for an
annual license fee of two hundred
dollars, payable in every county where
peddling operations are pursued and
which will be applicable to the boxcar
grocery as well as buggy and other
peddlers. This law goes into etTect
early next month and merchants, re
membering that laws do not always
enforce themselves, should take it upon
themselves to see that no peddlers are
slighted.- Trad* 1.
