Tlie people of one section of the city have developed a little plnn of their own to reduce the cost of food, Some of them decided to open n co-operative rjrocery gtore, to be tho first of a lonir chain of such stores. The co-operative Rrocery will be opened tonight at 603 Heed street. There, In n small carefully whitewashed room It will be conducted. The etore Is financed by a system of co-operntlvc shnro biilnrf. Tho members will receive Roodi at cost or llttlo above cost, to cover expenses, and any profits that may still arlo will bo either distributed ntnonir the members or put back Into the business, nccortllnp to the wish nnd dcslro of tho members. The store Is the result of careful study and InvcstlKntlon of tliu co-opcrathc movement tho world over. On one of the shelves In the new store Is to be found a number of books, not fofTsalc, but for refcrenco In explain ing the plan to customers. Theso books, written In various languages, havo been brought from many countries and they describe the principles nnd methods of the co-operative movement In these coun tries. Speaking of the possibilities and prom ises of the co-operative store, A. J. Mar golin, one of tho shareholders, who has a place of business at Sth and Walnut streets, said that the only wny for tho people to fight the "food trust" or any trust engaged In the production of the necessities of life was for the people to organize "The people do not realize," said Mr. Margolin, "the tremendous value of tho purchasing power which thoy possess. If they would only organize this purchas ing power they could do a' great deal In relieving distress and reducing tho high cost ot living. The co-operative move ment In this country Is In Its Infancy, if II can be said to exist here at all, but when one takes the trouble to a,tudy tho work of the co-operative movement abroad he will llnd some materlnl for thought "The International Co-operativo Alli ance, which met recently In Glasgow, represents one or the grcntcst world fed erations. It Is composed of 24 national I'nlts and Includes about 130,000 separate co-operative societies, having about 10, 000,000 family members, representing threo oi four times Hint number of persons "The most Important feature of this world-wldo co-operative movement Is the control of Industry, the elimination of the nilililltmin and the organization of pro duction nnd distribution of wealth by collectivities of citizens This organiza tion nnd ndmlnlstrnton of economic life by citizen consumers has been growing by leaps nnd bounds In many countries. The co-opctntlve movement the world ovi-r has done n business of ?:.O0O 000,000 during the last jenr, tnot only In the field of consumption, but In the field of production "It may seem strange, but there Is every reason to suppose that from the humble beginning which we have hero there mav come a great movement of or ganising tho purchasing power of the con sumers throughout tills country. The co operative movements of the European countries and of Australia have, for tho most part, had no more pretentious be ginning. Today they are doing business to the extent of hundreds of millions of dollars." Tonight n meeting of t,he shareholders of the co-opcratlvo store will be held at 503 Heed street AVajs and means will be discussed to Insure the success of tho enterprise.
