is a hysteria over the country vhich
is forcing prices down.
Otker Goods rollovr Silk.
A similar story was told at the
Popular by Maurice Schwartz and L
Weiss. Mr. Weiss is the buyer for
the Popular lie said that woolens
and cottons had a downward prom-
ise. In other words there is a chance
of a drop in sympathy with silk al-
though the drop has not come so far
as the retaUer is concerned. How-
ever the retailer is making reduc-
tions to the public in the anticipation
or at least of the hope of a reduc-
tion. Gloves will be an exception. These
will go higher it was said at both
the White House and the Popular.
This is due to the poor irrade of
(skins available. Most of the skins
for kid gloves come from the Bal-
kans it was explained. On account
of the war the kids have been neg-
lected and only a few skins out of
each dozen are worth making into
gloves. Consequently. the price
must go higher. The kids of South
America are in little it any better
condition than those of the Balkans.
The finest kid gloves in the world
are made from the skins of unborn
kids and these have deteriorated
The drop in shoes is not expected
to be great if there is any drop. And
what there is will probably be due
more to the hysteria referred to than
to any permanently depressing fac-
tor. Grocery Prices Still Hisher.

from large wholesalers have the word

the listed commodities. Underproduc-
tion is hurting the retail grocer most.
Mr. May says. Labor simply Isn't
available or if it is it is not producing.
Jewelry To Stay Ep.
Jewelry particularly silver and
diamonds is not going down and it
will not. in the opinion of F. J. Tur-
ner manager of the W. T. Hixson
company. Mr. Turner said that any

more than take care of itself." As

Chemicals went down from 3S to
2S percent at the time the armistice
was signed and have not changed
much since according to Scott White

chemicals used in warfare. Ho im-

Merchants Give Opinions.
After stating the facts the mer-
chant usually had some decided convic-
tions to express. One of them is that
the government has started at the
wrong place to punish profiteers. For
example a representative of a large
manufacturer was recently ordered
out of the business office of the White
House by Mr. Coblentx because of
his "public be damned" attitude. This
representative told Mr. Coblentx he
could take it or leave it when a cer-
tain abnormal and unwarranted price
was rauea into question. -This is
our chance and we are making the
best of it." Mr. Coblentx said the
representative told him. "But what
about the pubHeT- Mr. Goblents said
ne assea tue-jnan. "O. the publio be
damned." Was the reply whereupon
the White House president showed
him the door and told him ho would

is oiarnw oy most or tne retailers or
El Paso for high prices. The clothes
every woman in El Paso wears are
paid for or 'have been according to
what the manufacturers or specula-
tors could get for them which was
sometimes 200 and 300 percent more
than tlie speculators paid for them.
Only One Way Out.
"There is only one way out for the
retailer." said Mr. Coblentx. "The re-
tailer can not profit"- He simply
must depend on an incrasfl vlnm
or sales to bring his profit to a living I
and business doing figure. I do not I
believe the gross profit of El Paso re- I

ing stores-Bf the citv had onlv S6 ter-

bringing the gross profit to about

Dealers Want Reduction.
Mr. Schwartz said be hoped prices
would go down. He said every re-
taUer hoped It. for price reductions
mean reductions to the retaUer as
well as to the public with a greater
volume of sales.
To sum up: there have been price
reductions in wearing apparel In EI
Paso. These reductions have been
mainly in silks but to some extent
cottons and woolens In anticipation of
a decline In prices of these commodi
ties in sympathy with silk. Shoe
prices nave been reduced some in
some instances. Glove prices will go
up. rooa prices are au going up.
Other prices are static The main
cause of reductions Is a denressed

Banker Fears Injury
to Credit in Attempt
to Force Prices Down
Hew York. May 19. An Incomplete
list of direct losses due to strikes in
1919 places the cost to labor in wages
at nearly $725040000 and to industry
at more than one and a fourth billion
dollars. Francis H-"isson vice-president
of the Guaranty Trust company
of New Tork told the convention of
the National Association of Manufac-
turers here today. The chief danger
in the present situation. Mr. Sisson
said is that the desirability of low
prices as an end in Itself may be so
exaggerated as to lead to the attempt
to force prices down through harm-
ful measures for the control of credit.
