Mercantile machinery can be Dis a. Pended with. In every great inquiry into profiteering the middleman i found to j be getting a Large share if not the most. Of the surplus Cash. Food and i clothing and Coal Are All expensive at present for the fundamental reason that there i or Haj it Een a Scarcity of the a commodities but the increase. In cot to the Eon Metier i never held Down to the actual increase in the Cost of materials labor and capital. There in always a stratum of Middle men who must handle All the goods sold Arni who Are tempted to j buy anti sell warehouse receipts in the spirit of gamblers doubling the stakes at poker. It is a question whether hoarding or Quick turnover on a narrow margin a been More influential in creating the High Cost of living. Of the middleman were not a useful individual he would not exist so j ubiquitously in Normal times he is As Bani working and Little to be feared As anybody else in business. But j when a Scarcity arrives he takes his j Rake off. Jut now the middlemen profiting by Long time contracts to buy Coal Are paying a comparatively Small Price and Selling at an Advance so enormous that a Mere disclosure of the figure is enough to startle the con Umer. Individually the middleman seems not to blame. He is sell ing at the Market Price and that Price happens to represent to him the wealth of Aladdin. Yet somebody must stand Between the producer and the consumer must take the toss that accompanies distribution and must keep the channels i open Between the country and the City. Of a co operative organization can do this effectively it May be Able to take the place of tile despised jobber of Modem Industry serving the Farmer and the City Man going and coming and saving Money in both directions.
