THE YERINGTON TIMES
J. A.. MCCARTHY. Publisher THE "HIGGLING OF THE MARKET Adam Smith believed that under conditions of fair and free competition prices of commodities would tend to become stablized by the process called “higgling of the market." or the protests made by the consumers against what they consid ered an excessively high pricy. In the simpler social forms this bargaining of buyer with seller was doubtless effective in preventing produces or merchants making unduly large profits, but in the complexities of modern society, and especially in the great centers of population, it does not ap pear that it is any longer a factor in regulating prices. In some European and Asiatic countries goods are still sold at varying prices, dependent on the skill .of the salesman and the purchaser’s ability for what is known as "beating down." but in west ern Europe and America the one-price-to-all pre vails. A customer who thinks the price of an ar ticle too high wastes no time in asking for a lower price, but goes elsewhere to seek cheaper goods. So long as productive industry and merchandising were conducted by individuals or rival corporations, each trying to undersell his competitors, the on price was probably as fair to the consumer as any method that could be devised. It certainly had the merit that it did not discriminate between buyers, and it prevented the overcharging of cus tomers unskilled in bargaining. In the course of time, however, there has been developed a com munity of interest among manufacturers of many staple commodities that has resulted in the forma tion of price-fixing agencies which make practically uniform prices for articles of a certain quality. In many cases this standardization of prices has extended to the retail dealers, who are hot allowed to sell except as a fixed price. The “cut-price" deal er is frowned upon, and whenever it is possible his orders for standard-priced goods are refused. The wdde-spread discussion throughout the United States over what are claimed to be exces sively high costs of retail distribution, has shown that high rents of shops and slow turnover of stocks are important factors in the expense of re tail selling. To one who has been both merchant and consumer, it would seem that the policy of fixed prices may to some extent be responsible for limiting sales, and the consequent need for larger profits. A local harberdasher, appealed to for a modrate priced summer necktie, explained his failure to keep ties sold for less than SI.50 by sav ing: “We, don’t sell enough ties to justify handling the cheap sorts" He presumably knehv his own business, and yet, a large proportion of haberdash ers fail. The problem of efficient merchandising, outside of the great department stores, still await a solution. FREEDOM OR NOVELTY IN PLAYMAKING The interval of the last few years, a period of re construction of the world at large, has been for the ■ .-7 stage a season of change. Pre-eminent among the vicissitudes and innovations of the theater has1 been the arrival of the play of many scenes. Indeed conviction is growing that since “Liliom., and “The Hairy Ape" have found their wray to success ful production, the three and four act play is doom ed to that same oblivion which lias enveloped the five-act drama. Certainly by its manifold appear ance and evident popularity, the play with more than the usual number of scenes merits attention. Dramatists everywhere welcomed the advent of the scene play because it frees than from cramp ing restrictions of a play which must unfold its drama in but one, two, or three “sets." The pres ent-day playwright, with his multiplicity of scenes, is not. however, reverting to the oild-fa^hioned. slow-moving play of five acts. On the contrary, he is saying what lie has to say more rapidly and with a broader viewpoint than ever before. The scene play gives him opportunity to survey his theme from many sides and angles. But many writers have begun to realize that the newborn freedom of form dos not mean freedom from technique. In certain branches of the theater novelty has al ways been prized for its own sake. To verify this statement one need.only hark back to “On Trial,” w ith its facile manipulation of varied sights and in cidents, culled from courtroom testimony. For sheer novelty at its best we must not forget the recent production of “Die Wunderlichen Geshich ten des Kapellmeister Krcisler” of “The Mysteri ous Tales of Hoffman,” as tumor says American au diences are soon to know this amazing German mystery play of forty-two scenes. To recall certain fortuitous phases of melodrama is not to cast a condescending eye upon the scene play, but merely to underscore reflection that the successful and worthy writers employing this latest dramatic formula are, in greater part, authors who have first learned their more limitative technique in thorough fashion. Indeed the scene play may almost be said to have emanated from men of the theater, men who know their backstage better than they know the front, and who only, after long experience, have found themselves bound down and cramped in. It is these writers who justify in the significant protra.val of character they at tain. their bold departure from what has come to be the conventional three act play. Think, for example of John Drinkwater's “Lincoln ” How else could the living character of the great emanci pator have been set so sharply and yet kindled with such rare warmth of sincere feeling? In "Liliom” Molnar etched a delicate and many-sided delinea tion which could hardly have been equaled in any other way- And finally, by his multi-fashioned picturing of life's varied aspects, Eugene O'Neil’ justifies technically, if to some unpleasantly, his vivid character study in “The Hairy, Ape.” The scene play, with the passing of the genera tion may slip away as did the five-act drama, but for the present it takes its place upon the stages of a period. If it finds use by the playwright seeking plausible mystery and exposure, it appeals equally to the dramatist whose chief interest is character revelation. We state it as our honest belief that for the price*asked, Chester field, gives the greatest value in Turkish,Blend cigarettes ever f offered to smokers. Liggett & /flyers Tobacco Co.
