CONSUMERS PAY THE BILL GROCERS OF RICHMOND THINK TRUST IS RUNNING A GOUGE AS MARKET QUOTATIONS ON OATS OOES NOT JUSTIFY THE RAISE. Houlp.w ifr.

Sharp d womru J.avp becu for some t f ni- looking sus piciously at t h size of ilje,-,e packages ihhI thrir suspicions luive becu well founded. "Trust, a trust lo ; ce ihat it. does nor buffer loss in this era of ml net ions of prices," said a local retail grocer. "A trust can counter to the general trend and raise price to suit its own needs in spite of the fact that prices t)t commodities that it does not handle lire going down. For the last twenty five yea in I have been handling the va rious brands of rolled oais and have been able to sell them at V) cents a jjackage. "We grocers thought, the price stiff enough, for the eo.st of manufacture is nominal, the market price of oats be ing the principal cost factor. Now the different, manufacturers have cradual ly merged interest until there are only two firms that figure prominently in the manufacture of that, popular break fast food. These two firms are dose )y allied and their prices for the dif ferent brands of oats are the same. A rhort. time ago they decided to advance 1he price of oats, but instead of the us ual method they tried that of reducing the size of the package and so neatly was this executed that, the reduction in dze. which practically amounts to an Advance In the price of 2. per cent, was not noticed for nearly a month. A jiackage of rolled oats used to contain twenty-four ounces of oats, not includ ing the card board box; now the weight Ijox and all, is only sixteen ounces. Advance a Gouge. "The advance is simply a gouge on the part of the trust for the cost of production and the price of the raw material does not merit it. According to my estimate basing the cost at the present price of May oats in Chicago f4 cents a bushel, and allowing thirty two pounds to the bushel, the profit to the manufacturer would be over loo per cent. There used to be l'i pounds in a package (there is little over a pound now) and we will allow two bushels to a case of thirty-six packages, making the initial cost a fraction under : cents a package. The cost of manufacturing rolled oats, al lowing a liberal estimate, makes the total not over $1.30 a case. We have to pay more than twice that amount from first hands."
