PROFESSOR PAYNE'S WORK.
If there is a man in the United States to whom the pharmacists of that country owe an especial debt of gratitude, that man is Professor Geo. F. Payne, of Atlanta, Georgia. Persistently, courageously, doggedly since the day in Asheville when he first broached the subject, he has fought for the proper recognition of United States naval pharmacists. Undaunted in the face of apparently unsurmountable difficulties, he has with true Anglo-Saxon tenacity and persistency battled to accomplish his purpose and accomplish his labor of love, and on the 17th of June last he had the proud satisfaction of realizing that his labor had not been in vain. On that day President McKinley signed the bill which conferred on the members of the profession serving on board warships the title of Pharmacists of the Navy, with the rank of warrant officers. To use Prof. Payne's words : "This work shows that organized pharmacy can accomplish much, but disorganized efforts can secure but little. We feel that the whole profession of pharmacy of the United States has good cause to thank itself for the success of its efforts in this great work for this recognition of the profession of pharmacy.” The magnitude of the task undertaken can be appreciated when it is known that the movement received strenuous opposition from the naval medical staff. If pharmacy had more Geo. F. Payne's within its ranks it would speedily occupy the position in the community to which its importance renders it entitled.
rebate of the amount of the tax when goods are exported. Here is a clear case then of intention to make Canadians relieve the manufacturer of his share of tax by the advance in prices.
Are we going to sit calmly down and endure this? Are we going to allow ourselves to be kicked and not resent it? Is there spirit enough left in us to fight or are we milksops ?
We commend the spirit of the west as displayed in the following resolution. To Canadians we say “Go and do likewise."
We, the undersigned members of the Oklahoma Pharmaceutical Association and Druggists of Oklahoma Territory, in convention assembled, hereby agree upon our honor that we will not accept advertising matter, nor keep for distribution in our places of business any sort of advertising, nor permit our names to appear in any of the Territorial papers beneath the local adver-, tisements of any patent medicine firms wlio have on account of the stamp tax raised the price of their medicines.
We further pledge ourselves to discourage the use of all medicines that have been advanced in price on account of the stamp tax until prices have been reduced to the established prices in force prior to July 1, 1898.
We feel that the patriotism of these large institutions that have grown wealthy at the expense of the people of this country, is at an extremely Jow ebb when they force upon the retail druggists, not only the full burden of this tax, but in addition thereto a large profit on the money they invest in revenue stamps, and we ask that they show their patriotism by at once placing in force the old prices and bearing their share of the burdens of war taxation,"

THE ADVANCE IN PRICES.
Evidence is accumulating to show that the American patent medicine man is not going to have the "whole say" in shouldering his share of the war tax upon the retail dealer. The readiness with which they proclaimed their intention of raising prices to cover the stamp tax is meeting with a counter blast from the more independent retailers, and from present indications :hese gentlemen may find this last development a "harder nut to crack” than that of "substitution” or “cutting.
This matter receives attention from us bec iuse of its importance to Canadians. Already we are called to bear a share of this war burden.
Our wholesale jobbers are receiving invoices with the addition of amounts to cover stamps, and in other cases prices for proprietaries have been advanced.
Section 26 of Schedule B. of the Act provides for a
This Company are putting forth commendable efforts in endeavoring to stir up the manufacturers on the subject of protecting their preparations from price slaughtering. We confess our opinion is that not a large measure of success will attend their efforts. We have failed to fine among Manufacturers any general desire to regulate this matter, and in the absence of such, anything like energetic action
be looked for. The discussion on Mr. Pieler's resolutions at the P. A. T. A. meeting brought forth nothing but the same old tune, •The retailers are not united and nothing could be done," and this in the face of the fact that the Abby people had done something. By the expenditure of properly directed efforts they have preserved the sale of their goods to the retail druggist at full prices. So well satisfied are they with results that they propose continuing their efforts, and look for aid from the retailers.
Here is an opportunity for the latter to show that they appreciate a friend.
