MONDAY, FEB. 26, 1872. THE irritation felt by the tradesmen of London at the continued existence and extension of Co- operative stores is natural enough, no doiibi but we question the propriety of allowing the grievance to be brought before the notice of Government, or, as is threatened, of Parliament. Of course, the CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER, as providing for the payment of civil servants' salaries on the one hand, and taxing tradesmen on the other, was the proper Minister to whom the complaint should be made, if made at all; but the CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER has little, if any, power to interfere in the matter. If we understand the subject rightly, the co-operative movement was originally intended for the exclusive benefit of the Civil Service. It was imagined that such individuals, having fixed incomes, might derive mutual advantages by com- bining together for the purchase of the ordinary hecessaries of life; and that,beingmanagedbythem- selves there was nothing in such a business either illegitimate or unfair. After all that has been said and all that has happened, we cannot see how this position is to be assailed. These are times of free trade times, too, when the liberty of the subject is more than ever talked about and prized. Buy- ing in the cheapest market is still the cardinal doctrine of our faith, and he who can make a good bargain is everywhere held to be worthy of com- mendation. If it were not so, there would be a positive disgrace in individuals saving a penny on every pound of tea, of candles, or sugar. Object as they may, the London tradesmen can bring no very weighty arguments to bear upon these economists. The case is a hard one, we admit, but the remedy is beyond the province of Minister or Government. What would the aggrieved advise? Should it be made a sine qua non that all clerks in Government offices should deal with the nearest grocer, draper, and cheesemonger ? Is it recommended that a kind of preventive service be established for the purpose of checking all transactions not coming under the head of legitimate traffic 1 These ideas are too preposterous to be entertained, and yet we do not see how else the evils complained of are to be re- moved. We would not for a moment deny the fact that there are some abuses connected with the co-operative system. For instance, there is no just reason why persons not coming under the category of "civil servants," nor being members of the civil service co-operation associations, should partake of the advantages of those societies. There may be nothing morally or legally wrong in sup- plying outside customers, but there is a certain ap- pearance of unfairness in such a course and con- WN- 7T .1 — sidering that many civil servants derive their very position from the trade they are privately helping to injure, some hesitation might well be felt before going out of the way to make profit or to interfere with vested interests. If the promoters of the Civil Service co-operation movement would only draw the line here, there would be less reason for ob- jecting to their proceedings. We fear, however, there is little consolation for the tradesmen. They cannot even indulge in revenge. When a few years ago grocers were permitted to take out licenses for wines and spirits, the publicans, whose interests were seriously affected thereby, retaliated by be- coming dealers in tea. This was quite in accor- dance with the rules of free trade, and neither party could find fault. But the opponents of co- operative stores have no such agreeable method of paying back in the same coin. They must bear their grievance in silence at all events, they trust to a broken reed in thinking that Government or Parliament will help them. The best revenge they can take is to outdo their opponents by offering superior facilities and greater conveniences. They have opportunies of buying, and of selling too, which the managers of co-operative stores can never hope to obtain. Nor must it be forgotten that the purchaser who pays ready money at the Stores, derives an advantage in a reduction of price, which is not accorded, as a rule, by the ordinary tradesman to customers who make cash payments. Indeed, for the most part, the same prices are charged for ready-money as for credit, and the cost to the purchaser, in the first instance, is enhanced in proportion to the amount of accom- modation extended in the latter. However, we believe that tradesmen, who will calmly consider the exigencies of the case and weight the matter in an equitable scale, may turn to good account what they now regard as an insufferable evil. There need be no fear of the result.
THE STATE VISIT TO ST. PAUL'S. The preparations are going forward on a larger scale than was at first anticipated, and there is every pro- bability that the procession will be far more attractive than any which, of late years, has passed through the streets of the metropolis. It is not known whether the Prince of Wales will be present, but as his Royal Highness is not reported to be worse, there is every probability that the citizens will not be disap- pointed, or the ceremonial shorn of one of its chief attractions.
PRACTICAL THANKSGIVING IN WALES. In the hope of assisting the inhabitants of Cardiff, Swansea, Merthyr, Newport and other important towns in South Wales, to give a practical turn to the celebra- tion of the recovery of the Heir Apparent, we gladly place the gratuitous use of our columns at the disposa 1 of the officials connected with the various benevolent institutions of the Principality, for the acknowledgment of subscriptions which may be sent in towards their funds, on Tuesday next. We do so the more readily because a feeling has been expressed, in many quarters, favourable to the suggestion thrown out by us on Saturday last. The opportunity of turning so auspicious an occasion to account in the interest of our Infirmaries and Hospitals, should not be lost, and we, therefore, respectfully urge upon the public the advisability of bearing the sick and suffering in kindly remembrance upon a day set apart, by general consent, for the recognition of Divine compassion and mercy extended to the PRINCE at a period when his Royal Highness appeared to be beyond all human help. The propriety of recognising the ever-increasing demand upon the resources of these beneficent establishments, ana the duty of providing adequately for the af- flicted, in supplementing the unpaid labours of devoted medical men by spontaneous and liberal contributions, will, we trust, find acceptance among all classes; while the record of generous sympathy with those who dedicate so much valuable time and skill to the cause of humanity, will form a gratifying memorial of charitable aid fittingly bestowed upon a day of national thanksgiving.
ACCIDENT TO THE MAIL TRAIN LAST NIGHT. An accident occurred to the up mail last night, near Landore, which led to a considerable delay, and occa- sioned much alarm. From the scanty information which we have gleaned it would seem that, from some cause or other, the post-office van was smashed, and the work of sorting had to be done in third-class car- riages, under oircumstanccs of considerable difficulty.
PONTYPRIDD. ACCIDENT ON THE TAFF VALE RAILWAY.—An accident, an unusual event on this line, occurred at the Pontypridd Station on Friday morning by the breaking down of one of Powell Duffryn's wagons laden with coal while pass- ing through the station, which caused some delay in the traffic, the down passengers having to run on the up line, while the up passengers had to stay at Treforest until the down had passed. After the obstruction had been cleared away the traffic was resumed.
ABERDARE. THE THANKSGIVING AT ST. PAUL'S.-We understand that Dr. Price is one of the representative Nonconformists who have received a ticket of admission to the service at St. Paul's on Tuesday.
MOUNTAIN ASH. THE LEAGUE.—About forty new members joined the branch society lately formed in this place. An executive committee" was formed, with its full complement of offi- cials, and it was resolved that the whole place should be divided into districts, with a view of getting up petitions to Parliament, in support of Mr. Dixon's resolutions for the amendment of the Education Act. MEETING OF COLLIERS.—A crowded meeting was held at the long room Allen's Arms, on Friday evening- to consider the best means of removing the cause of com- plaint made by the door boys, when it was resolved that. thirteen workmen, representing the Cwmpennar Pits and the same number representing the Deep Duffryn' and Navigation Pits, should meet on Saturday evening at the Harp Inn, for the purpose of considering the mattar with a view to bring about a settlement. It was also arranged that all the boys should go to their work as usual.
ABERGAVENNY. THE SMALL Pox.—This dreadful disease has been very prevalent in this town and neighbourhood during the past winter months. Many died of it, but by far the larger portion of those who have been attacked were cured. A temporary hospital for the reception of cases of small-pox has just been completed in one of the Union gardens. It is not likely, however, to be much required for the disease is decreasing, and we hope soon to hear of ite entire disappearance.
