Pre.KM3mmsmmxmsa Public control of the Issues of se curities by utility companies and also Federal control of the securities of Interstate carriers was strongly urged before the convention of rail way commissioners today by Alonio R. Weed, chairman of the committee on the foregolnr subject, in his re port. The unrestricted Issue of securi ties, according to W.eed. has enabled small groups to obtain control of all classes of public utilities with little of their own money at stake, and in territories where they have little or no personal interest In the service. The alternative proposition of con trol over profits and prices by means of valuation would not have bien necessary if the issuance of securities had been properly regulated In the first Instance.

BRITISH GOVERNMESt SELLS FLOUR AT LOSS BALTIMORE. Oct.' 19. Charles C. Macaill, president of .the & A. Oam; brill Manufacturing Company, among the largest of the Eastern flour mill ers, says the recent statement from Washington relative to prices of flour In England and In this country Is misleading. It was announeed that American flour which sells here at IIS a barrel of Its pounds sslls In England at $8.75 a barrel, and that Hour which sells In England at 112.50 a barrel of 280 pounds costs 5 psr cent more In the United States. Mr. MacQIl I admits thecondition prevails, but ha said the dlffsreno in the cost'wa absorbed and paid, for by the British. gorernmtnt-and ulti mately charged to the consumers in the way of Indirect taxation. He auded: "The British government is anxious to keep down the cost of bread to Its people: hence it sells the fleur at a loss. The same Is true of wheat, which Is bought and Imported from this side, but is sold to millers at a lots of 2 or mora a quarter. The British government Is not the final loser.

IT TAKES a statistician occasionally to set people straight about things they think they know. The man in tile street has been using some tig figures lately about war profits. We have the highest authority for- telling his wife that the cost of delivering merchandise from various stores, tp the homes in this city is ten times as great as all the war profits that have come here.. And what makes -it most interesting to the thrifty housewife is the fact that 20 to 50 per cent of that cost is absolutely wasted. . .. Look out of your window the nest time your storekeeper delivers goods! What you see will show -youwhether you are dealing with a business man or not Is he delivering with a horse and wagon? You may know then that he is restricting his busi ness because he is restricting his radius of doing business. That means that he is not buying to the best advantage. His overhead is too high. Youare likely to lose in -the quality of the goods he ;cellsyou. IsheddiveringwilhacOTjvrtedpleaJKrrecar? That b the first mistake he is likely to make. A pleasure- car that is not and never was designed to carry merchandise that cannot stand the strain that bums up gas and oil out of proportion and is old before the paint is worn. That is the man who says motor delivery does not pay simply because it costs him more than it ought to cost These men do not fyiou what merchandise deliserg costs and they would get the facts. The storekeeper who knows the facts delivers with a VIM Delivery Car and you will know he is a business man-when you see his VIM deliver yoar merchandise. The VIM is the only delivery car designed with a full knowledge of the delivery requirement of a hundred lines of business. It is so far past the experimental stage that there are now 23,000 of them running all over the United. States. In all lines of business, with aS sorts of drivers, under all conditions of streets, roads and weather, and with a record of three years of service behind the oldest of 'them " VIM Delivery Cars have proved to be the most reliable, the most economical in gas, oil and .tire use of any de livery car, and the greitesthelp l& expansion ever offered to retail merchants. ' ' , , The progressive woman finds it pays, to do business with business merchants. Hundreds of these merchants who deliver with a VIM testify that the expansion in business and decreased cost in delivery easily save them $1,000 a year. These figures are conservative, and the sane results can be had by any merchant in the United States. Added to the merit of the cars uSemselves -here in this city is a most complete sales and service organization for-taking care of VIM trucks. The merchant who delivers with a VIM has every assurance that his car will keep rambtg every bxuhms day in the year, The VIM Delivery Car maybe bought the same as any other business appliance the cost mitten off over a period of twelve months.
