RETAIL PRICES, 1907 TO DECEMBER, 1916.
INTRODUCTION.
This bulletin, continuing the regular series on Retail Prices and
Cost of Living, gives the actual sale prices during 1916 of 28 articles
of food, 8 textiles, 2 kinds of anthracite coal, bituminous coal, and
gas. The prices per loaf of bread, together with the scaling weights
of dough before baking, are shown in Table B. The price of bread
per pound is shown in Table C.
To enable the reader to see the percentage changes in prices more
readily, the money prices of 27 articles of food and of stove, chest­
nut, and bituminous coal are reduced to relative prices, the average
prices tor 1916 being taken as 100. Individual relative prices for 15
of the 27.1ood commodities have been computed for the period 1907 to
1913, and general weighted relative prices or index numbers for these
commodities combined have been calculated for that period, the price
of each article being weighted according to the quantity consumed in
the average workingman's family, as shown in the Eighteenth Annual
Report of the Commissioner of Labor. Beginning with 1914, satis­
factory prices and weights for three other food commodities, chuck
roast, plate boiling beef, and bread, have been obtained, and these
additional articles are included in the relative prices and the
index numbers for 1914. For all the months of 1915 and 1916
the weighted index numbers have been constructed Irom the actual
prices of 22 different food commodities. The 4 commodities added
to the former list are cheese, rice, tea, and coffee. While relative
prices were made from the actual money prices of onions, beans,
prunes, raisins, and canned salmon, these prices were not used in
making the weighted index numbers because no weights could be
ascribed to them.

RETAIL PRICES, 1907 TO DECEMBER, 1916.

No relative prices were computed for 2 articles for which actual
prices are quoted in Table A of this report. These articles are leg of
lamb, -generally known to the trade as “ yearling,” which term, with
some firms, includes sheep of varying ages at different seasons of
the year; and storage eggs, for which quotations are secured for only
four months of each year.
The actual prices per pound of bread and the corresponding rela­
tive prices were not calculated prior to 1914, because some of the
reports of bread weights by bakers were not entirely satisfactory.
Actual prices of eight kinds of dry goods, of three kinds of coal, and
of manufactured and natuial gas are given. The coal prices are
reduced to relatives, but are not included in the retail price index
numbers. It is greatly to be desired that the retail price index
should be extended to include dry goods used for clothing and house
furnishings, fuel, and rents, as well as a larger number of foods, but
this can not be done until acceptable weights can be found for each
new article to be added to the present list.
The money prices at retail are shown for food, dry goods, and coal
in Tables A, C, D, and E, and for gas in Table 7.
Relative prices for the most important foods are presented in
summary form in Tables 1, 2, 3, and 4, and for coal in Table 6, the
more striking changes in prices being discussed in the text.

SUMMARY.
FOOD.

Table 1 presents the individual relative prices and the combined
index numbers of 15 food commodities for the period 1907 to 1913,
and of 18 food commodities for 1914, and of 22 food commodities for
1915 and 1916. The combined relative prices or index numbers for
1915 and 1916 are made up, as explained on the page preceding, from
the average prices of 22 articles of food, but in making the index
number for 1914 the prices of only the 18 articles reported for both
1915 and 1914 were compared, in order to get the percentage the 1914
prices were of the 1915 prices. In the'same manner the index num­
ber for 1913 was made by comparing the prices ol the 15 commodi­
ties leported for 1913 with identical articles reported in 1914, and so
on year by year back to 1907.

This table shows that prices in 1916 were more than 12 per cent
higher than in 1915—a much greater increase than in any other year
shown. Food prices have risen each year since 1907 except 1911 and
1915, and in 1916 were more than 39 per cent higher than in 1907.
Every article reported for the period has increased in price each year
almost without exception save for the years 1911 and 1915. Milk
shows the smallest increase for the period, 18 per cent, while round
steak shows the greatest, 61 per cent. Only two articles, potatoes
and sugar, in any year dropped below the prices of 1907. In 1915,
14 of the 27 foodstuffs carried fell in price when compared with the
prices in 1914. Even so, the price level in 1915 was higher than in
^ any previous year except 1914. Prunes were cheaper in 1916 than
in 1915; rice, coffee, and tea remained the same in price; all the other
23 articles carried made advances in price ranging from 2 per cent for
canned salmon to 75 per cent for potatoes.
The table also shows on the last line the change in the relative
prices of all articles of food combined, from year to year, 1907 to
1916. Table 2, next presented, gives the change month by month,
for all articles combined, during the year 1916.

Table 3 gives the individual relative prices for the United States
of the several articles for which comparable money prices could be
obtained for the years 1907 to 1916, and for each month beginning
with January, 1912. The accompanying chart (Al to A6) enables one
to follow the fluctuations month by month from January, 1912, more
readily than can be done from the table of relative prices. In using
this chart it must be remembered that all prices were obtained on
the 15th of each month. Thus, prices for August, 1914, reflect the
panicky conditions following the outbreak of the war in Europe.

RETAIL PRICES, 1907 TO DECEMBER, 1916.

Until 1916 the seasonal price changes which take place in many
articles had so affected the movement of prices that the chart for
the 15 food commodities combined shows very clearly the seasonal
variations. For 1916, however, there was an upward movement from
July on entirely unbroken by any downward trend. This upward
tendency is a reflection of the unusual advance in a number of articles
such as lard, potatoes, butter, milk, flour, sugar, and eggs.
The three beef cuts, sirloin and round steaks and rib roast, while
following a marked seasonal fluctuation, show an advance from year
to year. The high point in 1914 occurring in August was due to the
abnormal rise which immediately followed the outbreak of the
European war, but prices for 1915 seem to have returned to normal.
Butter prices fluctuated markedly with noticeable seasonal changes,
while milk showed but small variations in price until 1916, when the
higher prices of stock feed and labor forced up the prices.
The pork products, pork chops, bacon, and ham, show seasonal
changes with a more marked slump in 1915 than is shown in the beef
cuts, but exhibit the same upward tendency within the five years.
The price of lard, however, while rising rapidly during most of 1912,
shows no considerable rise during the succeeding three years when
most articles were affected by the European war, but declined during
that period. Toward the end of 1915, however, the price of lard in­
creased and continued to rise rapidly during 1916 until in December
it was 87 per cent higher than in September, 1915, when it was at
its lowest price since 1912.
From the beginning of 1912 to the middle of 1914 the price move­
ments of flour and sugar were similar, both tending downward.
At the outbreak of the European war both flour and sugar made a
sudden advance, the latter jumping more than 50 per cent. Both
flour and sugar declined in the later months of 1914 but neither fell
to the level obtaining before the war.
Relative prices for bread have been computed only from 1914 on,
and the movement of bread prices is entered on the chart for the last
three years. In the latter half of 1914 bread made a decided jump,
as did flour, but from early in 1915 to July, 1916, it dropped slightly,
and made another sharp advance from then until November, when it
dropped again, but not to the previous level.
By the end of 1916 eggs were higher than at any other time dur­
ing the five years, but only 5 per cent higher than in November,
1913. Hens, too, in 1916, rose beyond the level they had reached
during the five years, although usually the price of hens declines
ac egg prices go up. Potatoes reached a high point in 1912, but
with this exception they were much higher at the end of 1916 than at
any other time, and the rise from September, 1915, to December,
1916, was startling— 149 per cent.




INTRODUCTION AND SU M M ARY.

YEARLY AND MONTHLY PRICE CHANGES.

Table 4 shows for the United States the relative retail prices of
food for each year, 1907 to 1916, and for each month from January,
1912, to December, 1916; the per cent of increase or decrease in
1916 as compared with each specified year or month; and the per
cent of increase or decrease in each year as compared with the year
preceding, and in each month compared with the month preceding.
The relative prices shown in the table are the relative prices of the
several articles weighted according to the average consumption in
workingmen’s families (as shown by the bureau’s investigation of
1901), and are computed with the average price for the year 1916
as the base.
As previously stated, relative prices were computed for the period
1907 to 1913 for 15 articles. For 1914, relative prices were computed
for three other articles, chuck roast, plate boiling beef, and bread,
and these three articles are included in the index numbers beginning
with 1914. For 1915 and 1916 relative prices were computed for
nine additional articles—cheese, rice, onions, beans, prunes, raisins,
coffee, tea, and canned salmon. However, as the bureau has figures
from which weights can be established for only cheese, rice, coffee,
and tea, only these articles are included in the weighted index num­
bers for 1915 and 1916.
The first column of the table shows that the price of food in 1907
was 72 per cent of the average price in 1916, that in 1908 it was 74 per
cent of the average price in 1916, etc.; the second column shows that
the price in 1916 was 39 per cent higher than the price in 1907, that the
price in 1916 was 35 per cent higher than the price in 1908, etc.; and
the third column shows that the price in 1908 was 3 per cent higher
than the price in 1907, that the price in 1909 was 5 per cent higher than
the price in 1908, etc.
While the percentage change in prices can not be measured by sub­
tracting relative prices without shifting the base, yet, as explained on
page 369 (Appendix A) of Bulletin No. 156, it is easily possible to com­
pare prices for any dates for which comparison is not already shown
by dividing the relative prices to be compared by the relative price of
the period or date which is desired as the base. For instance, if it is
desired to measure the difference in price from 1907 to December,
1916, the relative prices for these two dates, viz, 72 and 111, respec­
tively, should be divided by the relative price for 1907, thus giving 100
per cent for 1907, and 154 per cent for December, 1916, on the 1907
base, showing 54 per cent increase in price in December, 1916, over the
average price for 1907.

DEALERS’ COMMENTS ON PRICE CHANGES.

In connection with the price quotations furnished the Bureau of
Labor Statistics each month, the retail merchants are invited to
state “ the cause of any material advance or decline in the price of
any article since the middle of last month.” Some of the statements
of the opinions of the retail merchants accompanying price reports
for January to December follow. The name of the city but not of the
dealer is shown.
JA N U A R Y .

Boston.—There is an advance in almost everything since last
month, such as potatoes, hams, lamb, and flour. Potatoes, they
claim, are short and are sending them across to war countries, thereby
shortening our market, and predictions are that potatoes will be
worth 60 or 70 cents before winter is over.
Chicago.—Can not give any reason for the advance in price of
meats, neither can our suppliers. There is plenty of goods to buy
here, no scarcity of meat of any kind, but they are certainly high in
their prices and it is cutting down the demand for the goods; also
find that people are doing with less than usual.
Fall River.—Strictly fresh eggs—very little demand caused change
in prices. Potatoes—talk of scarcity caused several advances. Also
delay in shipments from distant points.
Little Rock.—Pork loins are some cheaper. Best chops selling for
20 cents a pound. Packers claim there is a slow demand for them
and that causes them to sell cheaper. Are buying hogs cheaper.
Los Angeles.—There has been a scarcity of good potatoes on this
market lately and they are steadily advancing.
Philadelphia.—Eggs have taken quite a drop since last report,
caused by mild open weather starting young pullets to lay.
Pittsburgh.—Everything in the line of fresh meats is going sky
high in prices again. Everything practically has raised 3 cents per
pound, wholesale.
Seattle.—The reason they give us for the advance in beans is the
shipment of large quantities to the Eastern States.
FEBRUARY.

Dallas.—Flour and sugar advance by reason we do not know, but
at this time of year an advance in price of these two commodities is
generally expected. Fresh eggs are coming in very plentifully on
account of mild warm weather. Irish potatoes advance from 29
cents to 37 cents a peck, effected by scarcity of supply and demand.

RETAIL PRIC ES, 1907 TO DECEM BER, 1916.
M ARCH.

Baltimore.—Creamery butter has advanced sharply, but we have
not advanced retail prices accordingly. Inferior grades of potatoes
sell at 24 to 30 cents per peck, according to size and quality.
Little Rock.—Sugar has advanced about 75 cents per 100 pounds.
Memphis.—There has been a decided increase in the packers7
prices for beef and pork the last month.
Portland.—Butter advances 10 to 12 cents per pound, caused by
demand from Seattle.
A P R IL .

Dallas.—Lard up in price on account of high price of cottonseed oil.
M AY.

Butte.—Market conditions around this State have not responded
as promptly to the general advance on every item that we carry on
our shelves. The reason to assign is that most of the dealers are
carrying fairly heavy stocks for this period of the year, and are held
down by competition from advancing prices in proportion to the
advance in their costs if they had to buy new goods. It was but a
short time back that we were paying from 6 to 6J cents for the best
wether mutton by the carcass. To-day’s price is 16 cents with 20
cents for “ saddles.” We are speaking now of wholesale costs. Beef
is up to 13 cents for the fanciest steers, and poultry is hardly obtaina­
ble at any price, the stock offered being very poor. Idaho farmers
are enjoying the competition of the storage egg buyers who are taking
all of their offerings at prices that are netting them from $1.50 to $2
per case above former prices for the same time of the year.
Fall River.—Butter has dropped 2 cents a pound within a week—will
drop 2 cents more on the 16th of May. Grass butter now coming in.
Philadelphia.—The shortage in supply of hens is reason for increase
in price, the demand for the “ Jewish Passover,” which is increasing
yearly, cleaned up all live fowls in near-by sections—paying as high
as 23 cents for live. Naturally, the farmers will not kill but sell
alive.
San Francisco.—On account of scarce quantities received here,
hens, year or more old, dressed, not drawn, are 27 cents per pound.
JULY.

Butte.—Mutton is declining in cost from a maximum wholesale
price of 17 cents for prime wethers. .The navy bean market is a
problem, both eastern and western markets are asking close to 10
cents per pound for stock that a year ago was worth from $3.50 to
$3.75 per hundredweight. We have advanced our retailing price
to 12J cents, following the market.

Chicago.—Advance in beans said to be due to the heavy buying
by the Government. Was told that owing to militia being called
out and the commissary buying up beans (navy) was the reason for
their going up.
Columbus.—Beans— advance caused by light holdings and in­
creased demand by mobilization camps of National Guards. Smoked
meats advance. Big demand by National Guard Commissary as
most likely cause.
Pittsburgh.—Everything is still up in the price and going higher,
they say. Everything is scarce in the line of live stock.
Portland.—Beans of all kinds, particularly small beans, now
quoted 12J cents. Cause? Assumedly, “ War.”
Rochester.—Fresh eggs are being used instead of meat during the
hot weather. Southern potatoes are coming in freely and in good
shape.
AUGUST.

Chicago.—Milk—advance over previous month caused by general
increased costs of milk, labor, and supplies of all kinds.
Chicago.—Declines on rib roast and chuck roast. These cuts do
not sell in the extreme hot weather as do the steaks and chops, which
leaves somewhat of a surplus of these parts on hand, so we reduce
the price to dispose of them.
Cincinnati.—Market lower on all kinds of beef. Choice sides of
beef selling now at 13J cents a pound. Price in July 14§ cents.
Lambs firm. Choice selling at 19 and 20 cents a pound, whole.
Pork and provisions strong and scarce—strike on.
New Orleans.—New rice arriving lowers price of old rice from cold
storage, while better than new for cooking, must be sold quick to
avoid bugs. Scarcity of hogs cause of great rise in prices in last 30
days.
New York.—The price of flour has advanced on account of crop
shortage, to our knowledge.
Omaha.— Shortage of grass and dry spell is cause of advance in milk.
Omaha.—Flour—reports of rust and storms, North. Butter and
cheese— dry pastures (cause of advances).
Pittsburgh.—Everything took a drop except pork and it is going
higher on account of the shortage in dressed pork, as you know all
pork packers are having a time on account of the men striking that
kill pigs.
Rochester.—The rise in the price of flour is due to the shortage of
wheat, and the rise in butter and potatoes due to dryness.
St. Paul.—Milk— advance due to a scarcity of milk on account of
a very dry season.
Scranton.—Flour has taken a sharp advance in the last week. We
understand it is caused by evidence of rust in wheat.

RETAIL PRICES, 1907 TO DECEMBER, 1916.
SEPTEM BER.

Birmingham.—High price of feed has made it necessary to advance
the price of milk.
El Paso.—Advance in milk due to high price of feed stuff, the
advance of which is 50 per cent over this time last year.
El Paso.—Owing to the price of feed, we raised our prices on milk
September 11, 1916.
El Paso.—On account of high cost of feed stuff, we raised price of
milk September 21 to hold good through October at least.
Kansas City.—The Milk Producers Association has been trying to
get 12 cents per quart for “ A ” milk, but certified milk is only bringing
12J cents. So now the association is trying to raise the “ A ” milk
to 11 cents retail and 9 cents wholesale. So far we are only getting
10 cents.
Omaha.—On account of scarcity of supply and increase in expenses
the price of milk has advanced.
Philadelphia.—Fresh eggs are exceedingly scarce— the supply is
short, helped with the fact that this is the molting season, and while
they would naturally be scarce at this period of the year, there is a
shortage that is hard to account for.
Rochester.—New York State potatoes are coming in poor and the
supply is not equal to the demand. Strictly fresh eggs are hard to
obtain.
OCTOBER.

Baltimore.—Hens are very scarce and high.
Dallas.—Owing to high price of feed and other expenses, have
raised price of milk. All the dairymen have advanced. Two of the
largest have been charging this before; one of these has advanced
above 50 cents per gallon, but the majority are 50 cents. It was
almost unanimous. There was no agreement; each man seemed to
feel it necessary to go up or go out of business.
Denver.—The demand for fresh eggs exceeds the supply. Con­
sequently, the price is away up.
New York.—Milk strike of farmers from October 1 to 15 reduced
shipment of milk to 20,000 quarts.
Pittsburgh.—Feed is high, stock scarce and poorly fed. Prospects
not bright for holidays at this time.
Providence.—Higher cost and increase in operating expense cause
the increase in the price of milk.
Springfield.—Salmon and all canned sea foods have advanced, due
to the high cost of packing in tins, advance in labor, and also because
of the scarcity and high prices of fresh meats in this country.




IN TR OD U C TIO N AN D SU M M A R Y .

23

N OVEM BER.

Baltimore.—Advance in price of milk in effect from November 1
made necessary by granting increase to producers.
Birmingham.—Milk advanced on account of high cost of feed stuff.
Denver.—High prices of feed and a general scarcity of churning
cream is the cause of the rise in butter. Fresh eggs are as scarce as
hen’s teeth and are at a premium. Pity the poor consumer. Milk
is sold at cost. At present there is no profit. We do not want to
deprive a number of poor families of milk, who we know can not
afford to pay more—hence the same old price.
Indianapolis.—City ordinance enforcing pasteurization of all milk
except a milk equal to a certified product.
Milwaukee.—Farmers increased their price for milk.
Minneapolis.—Beginning November 16, 1916, milk will be 9 cents
a quart owing to scarcity of milk. Farmers can sell to cheese fac­
tories for 10 cents a gallon. Farmers have organized and will get
very high prices.
Newark.—The cause of the enormous price of lard is due (as I was
told) to the export to England.
New Orleans.—From November 16, on account of the higher price
paid to farmers, we will increase the price of milk to consumers to 6
cents a pint and 11 cents a quart. The majority of local milkmen
have increased the price to consumers to 6 cents a pint and 12 cents
a quart on account of the increased price of feed and everything else.
New Orleans.—The high price of feed compelled us to increase the
price of milk or go out of business.
Omaha.—Raisins we have are cold storage, no new ones in yet, very
scarce. Navy beans—we order 3 sacks, get one bushel. Potatoes—
hold up here. There seemed to be a good crop, too. One farmer
that we know raised 900 bushels and had them in his cellar a month
ago. Cheese is selling 30 cents a pound at the wholesalers to-day.
Pittsburgh.—Am now selling milk at 9 cents per quart owing to
increase of price to producer.
Pittsburgh.—The increase in price of milk necessary on account of
increased price demanded by the producers.
St. Paul.—We raised the price of milk because the feed is so high.
San Francisco.—It has come to our notice that certain companies
are buying all the turkeys available out here, which means that the
price will be very high. We do not handle poultry.
Scranton.—We do not try to account for advance in prices. The
country seems to have gone mad on high prices with the exception
of wages and salaries.
Springfield.—Commission merchants have attributed the extreme
high price of potatoes to the shortage of cars. Eggs, they believe,

RETAIL PRICES, 1907 TO DECEMBER, 1916.

to a certain extent are cornered by food speculators. Beans are
out of a poor man’s reach on account of the enormous output to the
warring nations of Europe.
Washington.—Raw milk has advanced from 9 cents to 10 cents
per quart because of increased cost of production.
DECEM BER.

Birmingham.—All high prices due to short crops and European
war.
Philadelphia.—Egg supply increased a little since last report and
prices weakened, but these last few days’ supply has decreased and
prices have gone back to former quotation.
BREAD WEIGHTS.

This report shows, together with prices, the scaling weight (weight
of dough before baking), in ounces, of the principal brands of bakers’
wheat bread as reported by representative bakeries in each of the
cities on the 15th of each month, January to December, 1916, and
for comparative purposes for the corresponding dates of 1915, where
available.
Owing to the increased cost of labor and of flour and other in­
gredients, the prices of 139 brands of bread were increased during
the latter half of 1916. This change was sometimes accompanied by
an increase in weight. In other cases, the weight did not change
when the price increased, and in a few cases the weight was reduced
when the price changed.
Table C shows the prices of bread on the basis of 16 ounces of dough
as computed from the weights and prices in Table B, and covers the
same period. For instance, if a loaf of bread sells for 5 cents and
the scaling weight, that is, the weight of the loaf in the dough, is
reported as 12 ounces, the price of this same bread scaled at 16 ounces
would be 6.7 cents. Comparisons of weights and prices on December
15, 1916, and on December 15, 1915, are available for 261 brands. A
computation of the price of 16 ounces of bread, in the dough, as con­
tained in Table C, shows that of the 261 brands for which comparison
can be made, 254 were higher in price, 3 were lower, and 4 were the
same in price.
The weights and prices of wheat bread, shown in Tables B and
C of this report, were reported by representative bakeries in each
city. In order to avoid identification, names of firms and brands
are not disclosed, but each firm has been given a number and each
brand reported by a firm has been designated by a letter.
The following remarks accompanied bakers’ reports of bread
weights during 1916:

JAN U ARY .

Louisville.—Continued high price of flour and other materials
necessitates our reducing the weights a little.

Richmond.—Flour at $6.80; lard at 11J cents; sugar at $6.15;
salt at $1.52; malt at $7. Where, oh where, will we land working
for the good people ?
M ARCH.

New Orleans.—While flour has declined in price, this is offset by a
good advance in lard and sugar, of which we use considerable.
A P R IL .

New Orleans.—Wrapping paper has advanced double in price—■
dealers’ stock nearly exhausted.
M AY .

Butte.—We sell our bread always at same weight and price, as
long as our flour supply holds out, which was bought last year.
Richmond.—Made out of flour now selling for $10.10 in car lots.
JUNE.

Chicago.—Although flour is cheaper this month, ingredients are
much higher—therefore, no increase in weight.
New Orleans.—Flour is slightly lower, but all other ingredients are
higher; also wrapping paper and tape.
JU LY.

New Orleans.—While flour is somewhat lower, yet lard, sugar, and
other ingredients continue extremely high.
Pittsburgh.—On account of high price of sugar and lard, we reduced
weight 1 ounce.
St. Paul.—High cost of flour forces cut in size of loaf.
AUGUST.

Baltimore.—We have some flour on hand at old prices. If price
keeps up at to-day’s market will have to advance price of bread.
Charleston.—Owing to the price of flour and sugar, we have cut 1
ounce off bread.
Cincinnati.—Cut weight 1 ounce on account of high price of flour
and lard.
Cleveland.—Scaling slightly lighter, increased labor and raw
material the cause.
Columbus.—Changed weight because of advance in flour. Advance
in flour causes reduced weight of brand. Prices will have to be
advanced soon.




26

RETAIL PRIC ES, 1907 TO DECEM BER, 1916.

Detroit.—Raise of price due to advance of price of material used
in the making of bread.
El Paso.—Size reduced to offset increase in price of flour and
continued high prices of lard and sugar.
Indianapolis.—High cost of raw material. A further cut in weight
will be made soon. Change made in weight on account of high
price of flour.
Los Angeles.—Increased weight to improve quality, made possible
by eliminating of return bread.
New Orleans.—Since our last report, flour has advanced heavily
and feed for our live stock is strongly higher.
Omaha.—Owing to present price of flour, weights will be reduced or
prices increased in the near future.
Providence.—Lower scaling due to advance in flour cost.
St. Paul.—High cost of flour forces cut in size of loaf.
SEPTEM BER.

Atlanta.—On account of increased costs of all materials, forced to
reduce weights.
Birmingham.—Eliminated 5-cent bread. We have a 14-ounce
bread law and raw material too high to make a 14-ounce-5-cent loaf.
Boston.—The cause must be evident; in fact we must be losing at
the above. Expect to raise price soon. Changes caused by higher
cost of both materials and labor.
Charleston, S. C.— We are now making in the place of 8-cent bread a
10-cent loaf, and if prices of flour still advance we will have to cut the
5-cent bread out.
Cincinnati.—On account of the great advance in price of materials,
we are obliged to reduce the weight of our loaves.
Cleveland.—Change of weight due to price of flour.
Columbus.—Higher prices of material cause reduced weights.
Where we have to use all high-priced flour, another advance in price
of bread must follow.
Dallas.—Will introduce 10-cent loaf on arrival of new scale, 25
ounces. Each $1 per barrel advance on flour will reduce weights 1
ounce. Five-cent loaf scaling at 12 ounces, basis $6.50 per barrel
flour. Owing to advance in flour, bread weight cut 1 ounce.
El Paso.—Size of loaf reduced on account of continued rise in price
of flour.
Indianapolis.—High cost of flour, shortening, sugar, and milk.
Kansas Gity.—Five-cent size eliminated. Advance in material
cause of change in size of loaf.
Los Angeles.—State scaler of weights and measures has ruled bread
must not weigh less than 24 ounces baked. This firm has lost $6,000
since January.

Louisville.—The present prices of raw materials used by us caused
us to reduce the size of our loaves. These weights can not be main­
tained very long unless there be a big change in price of raw material
downward.
Manchester.—I have given up the wholesale business. Lose too
much money. Make for retail and retail only. Increase in price of
French bread due to high cost of material. Change in price or weight
of other brands to follow shortly.
Minneapolis.—On account of high price of flour, we have been
obliged to raise the price on some of our goods since we mailed you
our last report. Loaves made 1 ounce smaller because of increase of
prices of materials.
Newark.—We are gradually reducing the weight as we begin to get
into the higher-priced flour.
New Haven.—The increased price of flour has necessitated the
decrease in weight of loaves.
New Orleans.—First-class bakers’ flours, such as we use, are now
exceedingly high; prospects for further advance later on; other ingre­
dients likewise.
Portland.—Weight is decreased on account of high flour prices.
Weights cut during month on account of increased cost of flour, etc.
St. Louis.—Cost of flour and other materials increased abnormally,
compelling us to cut weights.
Salt Lake City.—We had to reduce the weight on account of the
increased prices for flour and other ingredients. Decrease in weights
due to advance in price of flour and other raw materials.
San Francisco.—The above weights in effect August 28, 1916.
The proportional difference in scaling weights is due to the fact that
smaller loaves ubake out” more than the large ones.
Scranton.—The high price of flour, sugar, and shortening have
made it impossible to scale off at the former weights:
Seattle.—Decreased weights owing to increased cost of flour, short­
ening, and sugar.
Springfield.—We have cut our large loaf from 28 to 22 ounces and
charge the same price.
OCTOBER.

Milwaukee.—Due to heavy increase of all raw materials, all brands
of retail bread were discontinued except the above, and these reduced
in sizes and the price on small loaves raised.

COAL.

Prior to 1914 retail prices of coal for household use were secured
quarterly by the bureau, on January 15, April 15, July 15, and
October 15, but beginning with 1914 prices were secured semiannually
on January 15 and July 15.
The table which follows gives the per cent of increase or decrease
in the price of coal from January 15, 1915, to January 15, 1916, and
from July 15, 1915, to July 15, 1916. Three kinds of coal are in­
cluded—Pennsylvania anthracite, white ash, stove size; Pennsylvania
anthracite, white ash, chestnut size; and bituminous. The compari­
sons are of coal for household use and sold in ton lots. Table E shows
actual prices of the three classes of coal above named in ton lots and
in half-ton lots.

manufactured gas from 51 companies in 38 cities, for natural gas from
13 companies in 9 cities, and for mixed manufactured and natural
gas from 2 companies in 1 city.
Four companies reported a decrease in the price of manufactured
gas between October 15, 1915, and April 15, 1916:
Baltimore, Md.: From $0.80 to $0.75.
Minneapolis, Minn.: From $0.80 to $0.77.

SCOPE OF STUDY AND METHOD OF OBTAINING PRICES.
This report presents for each of 46 of the most important industrial
cities in the various sections of the United States the retail prices of
the principal articles of food, the weight and prices of the principal
brands of wheat bread, the retail prices of eight articles of dry goods,
the retail prices of anthracite and bituminous coal, and of gas for
household use. The retail prices of food in Rochester, N. Y., as
shown in this report, begin with May 15, 1916; the prices for Colum­
bus, Ohio, begin with June 15, 1916, and the prices for Bridgeport,
Conn., begin with October 15, 1916.
Data are furnished to the bureau by approximately 725 retail
stores, 150 bakeries, 215 retail coal dealers, 66 gas companies, and
205 dry-goods companies.
Excellent results have followed the use of the form books for report­
ing prices. Over 90 per cent of the reports for January to December,
1916, requested from retail merchants, dairymen, and bakers were
received. A number of merchants have also stated that the stub
record of prices was of considerable value to them, as it is an easy
method of preserving a record of prices each month from year to
year. In several cities practically every report requested from mer­
chants, dairymen, and bakers has been received each month. This
is notably true of Atlanta, Baltimore, Indianapolis, New York,
Pittsburgh, and St. Louis. Almost every coal firm, gas company,
and dry-goods merchant from whom price statements were requested
has also responded to the request.
The 46 cities included in this report are important industrial cities,
representing 32 States and the District of Columbia. In a general
way the city selected in each section of the country is the city having
the largest population in that section; but, in addition, six smaller
cities are included as being industrially important in those sections.
The six cities are Bridgeport, Conn.; Butte, Mont.; El Paso, Tex.;
Fall River, Mass.; Scranton, Pa., and Springfield, 111.
Within the 46 cities live one-fifth of the total number of people,
two-fifths of the urban population, and approximately one-third of

FOOD.

The present report gives retail prices of the principal articles of
food in 46 industrial cities in the United States for January to Decem­
ber, 1916, and for comparative purposes the prices on the corre­
sponding dates of 1915. Summaries are also presented covering the
nine years from 1907 to 1916.1
The retail dealers who kindly furnished the information for this
report were selected through personal visits of- agents of the bureau,
and are those selling largely to the families of American, English,
Irish, German, and Scandinavian wage earners. Practically all of
the stores included are neighborhood stores, as such stores more
nearly represent the trade of workingmen’s families. A compara­

tics, as follows: Eighteenth Annual R ep ort, covering 1890 to 1903; Bulletin No. 59 (July, 1905),covering
1904; Bulletin No. 65 (July, 1906), covering 1905; Bulletin No. 71 (July, 1907), covering 1906; Bulletin No.

tively few “ down-town” stores are included. The stores selected,
with a very few exceptions, deliver all purchases when requested.
After the agent of the bureau had selected a store, arrangements
were made for the retail merchant to send to the bureau a statement
of prices of the various commodities on the 15th of each month
thereafter. Return visits to the various firms are made by agents
of the bureau whenever it is necessary to make personal inquiries
concerning the monthly price quotations.
The grade of articles quoted is that sold in each city in stores
patronized largely by the families of American, English, Irish,
German, and Scandinavian wage earners.
No attempt should be made to compare prices between cities in
different localities without giving due consideration to the fact that
(1) the trade in some cities demands and is furnished higher and more
expensive grades of articles than are furnished to the trade in other
cities; (2) the cities for which prices are shown in this report are widely
separated; some are in localities near the source of supply, while
others are a great distance from it, making it necessary to add to the
prices to meet the cost of transportation; (3) market conditions and
methods and costs of marketing vary greatly in different localities,
due to the demands of customers, rentals, wages, and other fixed
charges or expenses. It is almost impossible to quote prices for any
article of the same grade for all cities. The grade varies not only
from city to city, but also from firm to firm within the same city.
It was found that it varied to some extent from month to month in
some stores. Prices are not included in this report for stores in
which the grade varies from month to month.
Brief descriptions of the articles and necessary explanations con­
cerning each are here presented.
FRESH B E E F .

In this report prices are quoted for five cuts of meat, as follows:
Sirloin steak, round steak, rib roast, chuck roast, and plate boiling
beef.
Methods of cutting beef vary considerably in different cities and
affect retail prices. Prices are also affected by the grade or quality
of meat; by the custom of trimming bone and fat from cuts before
weighing to customers, which varies from trimming off almost all
bone and fat, in some cities, to little or none, in others; and also by
applying the same name to entirely different cuts, as sirloin steak
to cuts commonly known as porterhouse, and round steak to “ top”
round, as is done in some cities.
To show differences in prices due to different practices of cutting,
a table is here given, with the prices of sirloin steak and of round
steak, in two different groups of cities.

1The cut which is called “ sirloin” steak in cities under group 1 is know n as “ porterhouse” steak in cities
under group 2 and in all other cities for which prices are shown m this bulletin. There is in the cities under
group 1, owing to the methods of cutting, no cut that corresponds to that know n as ‘ ‘ sirloin ’ *in other cities.

entirely through the round of beef as in cities under group 2 and in other cities where “ top ” is not specified
it is “ t o p ” round, is cut from the inside of the leg, ana extends to the leg bone and to the membrane or
tissue that marks the natural division between the inside and the outside of the ieg.

A majority of the firms that furnish quotations for cuts, as quoted
in this report, buy meat by the whole, half, or quarter carcass. Some
of them also buy rounds, loins, or ribs of beef. These are bought
when there is a great demand for round, sirloin, or porterhouse steak,
or for prime rib roast, or when there is little demand for inferior cuts,
brisket, chuck, neck, and plates.




36

RETAIL PRIC ES, 1907 TO DECEM BER, 1916.

The carcass is divided into halves or sides by sawing and chopping
through the center of the backbone. The half or side is separated
into the hind quarter and the fore quarter by cutting through from
the belly between two ribs to and through the backbone. The cut
varies in different cities and may be between any two ribs from the
ninth to the thirteenth, or immediately after the thirteenth rib,
counting from the rib in the shoulder and brisket which corresponds
to the collar bone in the human being.
The hind quarter is separated into cuts, loin and round, by cutting
either as shown by the heavy line A -B in the diagram, or as shown
by the dotted line x-y. The second method is used in some mar­
kets in a number of cities in the North Atlantic States, and makes a
larger loin and smaller round than the first method.
Owing to the methods of quartering as described above, the loin
of beef in some cities has from one to four ribs cut to it. These ribs
are sold as roast or as porterhouse or club steak. If sold as steak,
the ribs are usually removed before weighing.
The loin is cut into sirloin and porterhouse steaks and flank. The
cut commonly known as “ sirloin” steak for which prices are quoted
in all except four cities is cut parallel to the whole cut surface of the
thick or butt end of the loin and includes all cuts with any part of
the hip bone in them. These cuts are known as “ rump” steak in
Fall River, Mass. The other cuts of the loin of beef, those from the
small end next to the ribs, with no part of the hip bone in them, are
commonly known as “ porterhouse,” but in Boston, Mass., Manchester,
N. H ., Philadelphia, Pa., and Providence, R. I., these steaks are cut
obliquely, giving more meat surface than in perpendicular cuts.
They are called “ sirloin” steak and the prices quoted for these four
cities are for these cuts. There is in these four cities, owing to
methods of dividing the round from the loin, no cut that corresponds
to “ sirloin” in other cities.
The round of beef is divided into two cuts or pieces, round and
rump, as shown in the diagram.
The round has the leg bone in it and consists of the round and the
shank. “ Whole” or “ top” round steaks are cut from the round.
Whole round steak is cut through parallel to the full cut surface of
round and includes top round, bottom round, and a cut of the leg
bone of the thickness of the steak.
Top round is a cut from the inside of the leg. It extends through
to the leg bone and to the tissue or membrane which marks the
natural division between the inside and the outside of the leg. It is
tender and palatable, while the bottom or outside is muscular, firm,
tough, and dry. In almost all markets in which “ top” is cut it does
not include a cut of the bone, but in a few markets it includes a cut
of the bone and a very small part of the bottom round. Markets




SCOPE OF STU D Y A N D M E T H O D OF O B TA IN IN G PRICES.

37

that sell top round steak sell the bottom for pot roast, Hamburger
steak, or use it for sausage meat.
The rump is from the top of the hip near the tailbone, includes part
of the hip bone, and is called rump roast in almost all cities, and
bouillon or butcher’s roast in a few cities.
The fore quarter is divided into rib, chuck, plate, and shank. The
shank is removed by cutting through the shoulder joint or by cutting
and sawing through the leg bone below that joint. The plate is sepa­
rated from the rib and the chuck by cutting through the ribs begin­
ning near the middle of the rib next to the cut which separated the
half or side of beef into the hind quarter and fore quarter and running
parallel to the backbone to the point where the shank was removed.
The nearer the line or cut to the backbone the shorter the rib of beef,
the more desirable the cuts of roast beef, and the higher priced.
The rib of beef is usually separated from the chuck by cutting
between the fifth and sixth ribs to and through the backbone, counting
from the rib in the shoulder nearest the neck. It usually includes
eight ribs, two of which have the thin back part of the shoulder blade
in them. The cuts of rib roast for which prices are quoted do not
have any part of the shoulder blade in them, are called prime rib
roast, and sell for 3 to 5 cents per pound more than the two ribs or
cuts with part of the shoulder blade in them. Some markets in some
cities cut rib roast short and trim oil part of the backbone before
weighing.
The chuck extends from the point where the rib of beef and chuck
are separated, to and including the neck. The prices quoted for
chuck roast are for the best cut, which is next to the butt end of the
rib of oeef. In some markets the chuck is cut into steak, for which
there is considerable demand, as it is cheaper than sirloin, porterhouse,
or round.
The plate includes the fore-quarter flank or navel, and the brisket.
The flank or navel extends from about the eighth rib to the hindquarter flank, and the brisket extends from about the eighth to the
first rib and includes all the breastbone. The prices quoted for plate
boiling beef are for the best cut of plate, which is from near the navel
and extends to the point where the plate is separated from the rib
and the chuck.
In many cities no bone or fat is trimmed from sirloin, porterhouse,
or round steak before weighing to customers, while in others the
trimming varies from cutting off a very small portion to cutting off
approxmately all bone and fat before the steaks are weighed. Steaks
are usually trimmed more before weighing in cities in the North At­
lantic States than elsewhere. In almost all cities rib roast is trimmed
after weighing by cutting off part of the backbone and by ribbing or
cutting out ribs. Markets in cities where steaks and roasts are




38

RETAIL PRICES, 1907 TO DECEMBER, 1916.

trimmed after weighing sell bone and fat twice, first to purchasers of
steak and roast, and second to buyers of scraps, bone, and suet.
PO RK CHOPS.

The quotations are for loin chops.
Prices are quoted on the pound basis, but many of the sales are for
quantities larger than 1 pound.
BACON.

Prices are reported by each dealer on the best grade of smoked
bacon that he sells in any considerable quantity to families of wage
earners.
No fancy bacon ready sliced in glass jars or other small packages
is quoted.
The prices quoted are in most cases for bacon sliced when sold, but
in a number of cities some of the dealers sell relatively little sliced
bacon and, therefore, have quoted bacon by the piece.
Prices are quoted on the pound basis, but many sales are of quanti­
ties larger than a pound.
HAM.

Prices are reported by each dealer on the best grade of smoked
ham that he sells in any considerable quantity to families of wage
earners.
The prices quoted are in most cases for ham sliced when sold, but
in a number of cities some of the dealers sell relatively little sliced
ham, and, therefore, have quoted whole hams.
Some of the firms that sell sliced ham cut only four or five slices
from the middle of the ham and sell the ends without slicing. On
the other hand, some dealers slice practically all the ham and in such
cases the prices quoted are for the best slices from the middle of the
ham.
Prices are quoted on the pound basis, but in many, if not most,
cases the usual quantity sold is greater than 1 pound.
LARD.

All quotations are for “ pure” lard with the exception of a few for
“ pure leaf.” No “ com poundlard is quoted. The great majority
of quotations are for “ tub ” lard (lard sold in bulk). Some quotations,
however, are for lard in pails. Tub lard is quoted by the pound.
In many cases tub lard is customarily sold in quantities ot two or
more pounds, and in all such cases the price quoted in this report
is reduced to the pound basis. Where lard is sold by the pail, the
price is quoted per pail, the net weight being given in each case.

LEG O F LAM B, Y E A R L IN G .

The prices quoted in this report are for the article generally known
to the trade as “ yearling.” The age of the sheep (“ yearling” ) varies
from approximately 9 to 18 months. Owing to the fact that, in
some firms, the age varies considerably with different seasons of the
year, no “ relative” prices are computed for this article in the report
of the bureau.
CANNED SALMON.

Quotations on canned salmon from each firm are for a definite
brand, or brands of equivalent grade, throughout the period for which
prices are quoted, except as indicated. The brand or grade has been
entered in connection with the price. Where a merchant has quoted
a. brand manufactured especially for his trade or carrying his firm
name the description entered is “ special brand” in order not to dis­
close the identity of the firm furnishing information to the bureau.
The brand or grade selected for quotations is that which is sold
largely in the stores reporting prices and upon which quotations can
be secured from month to month.
Salmon comes in two-sized cans, large and small. The net weight
of the large can is usually 15 to 16 ounces, and of the small can from
7\ to 8 ounces. The net weight as given on the can is entered in
connection with the price.
Prices are for a single-can sale, except in a few instances where the
two-can sale predominates in family trade.
H ENS.

Prices are quoted for “ hens” at least a year old, such as are usually
sold for roasting or stewing, and in some cities for stewing only. In
some localities the term used for these hens is either ‘ ‘ fowls,” or ‘ ‘ stew­
ing,” or “ fricassee” chickens.
The quotations are in most cases for “ dressed” hens, although a few
dealers reported prices for “ five” hens. Dressed hens are described
as “ drawn” or “ not drawn.” In a few cities hens are sold “ full
dressed” ; that is, drawn and with head and feet off.
Throughout all cities reporting, the basis of sale is 1 pouiid.
EGGS.

Prices of eggs are reported from grocery stores with the. exception
of a few instances in which quotations have been secured from dairy
firms. The prices quoted are for “ strictly fresh” eggs of the highest
grade handled by the firm on the date of each quotation, excluding
fancy eggs or eggs selected for size and color. Many of the firms
represented in this study carry both fresh and storage eggs whenever
both are on the market, and some firms at certain seasons do not




40

RETAIL PRIC ES, 1907 TO DECEM BER, 1916.

carry any “ strictly fresh” eggs. The trade terms used to describe
the eggs for which quotations are given vary with the locality. On
the Atlantic coast, for example, common descriptive terms are
“ near-by,” “ State,” “ eastern,” and “ western” ; in the Middle West,
“ near-by” and “ country” ; in certain southern cities, “ near-by”
and “ Tennessee” ; and on the Pacific coast, “ ranch” and “ eastern
fresh.”
Some quotations for “ storage” eggs were secured for the period
1907 to 1911, but the number was insufficient for purposes of publi­
cation. Prices are quoted in Bulletin No. 106, Part II, for storage
eggs for the months of January and February, 1912, and in the suc­
ceeding bulletins covering the months of January and February and
November and December of each year, prices for storage eggs are
quoted. Some few firms quoted storage eggs for the spring, summer,
and fall months, but those quotations were not entered in the reports,
as it appeared that in some cases, at least, the article quoted as
“ storage” during the spring months consisted of “ iced in transit”
and not of eggs that had been in storage. No relative prices have
been computed for storage eggs.
All prices in the table are quoted on the dozen basis, and in most
cities included in this study the dozen is the only unit of sale of
importance. In New York City, however, purchases by the 25 cents’
worth are common, and in the Pacific coast cities two dozen becomes
at times the prevailing unit of scale, owing to the fact that it is a
common practice to make a special rate on this quantity (as, for
example, 65 cents per two dozen when the price is 35 cents per
dozen). In such cases the price as quoted on the most usual unit
of sale has been reduced to the rate per dozen.
BU TTER.

The quotations for butter represent the grade of butter known on
the market as “ creamery extra.” Dairy butter and brands desig­
nated as specials or fancy have not been included.
Creamery extras are sold in two ways: In bulk, otherwise known
as “ tub” butter, or in bricks, termed “ print” butter. When print
butter is put up in cartons it is often termed “ package” butter.
The demands for print or for tub butter seem to rest on local prefer­
ences. In some cities the price is the same for both; in others print
butter is quoted at 1 or 2 cents higher than tub butter.
All prices in the table are quoted on the pound basis.
In some of the Pacific *coast cities butter is usually sold in 2-pound
prints, locally known as “ squares,” but all such quotations have been
reduced to the 1-pound basis.

CHEESE.

The quotations for cheese represent the kind known as “ full
cream” or “ whole milk.” The cheese quoted is principally New
York or Wisconsin, but in the western division some quotations
have been furnished on local cheese, such as Oregon, Cahfomia, and
Utah. Where a store carries cheese from more than one State at
different prices, quotations are given on cheese from one State only.
All prices are on the pound basis.
M ILK .

All quotations are by the quart and are for milk regularly delivered
to customers.
In connection with each quotation is a statement as to whether the
milk is sold bottled or dipped from the can as sold, and also a state­
ment indicating whether the milk is sold “ raw” or “ pasteurized.”
All quotations are from dairies, either the original producer or a
milk dealer, and none are from grocers.
The method of sale is in some cases by the quart, and a bill is
rendered monthly for the quantity actually served. In other cases a
certain number of tickets, each exchangeable for 1 quart of milk, is
sold for $1, usually with a slight gain to the consumer. Thus, if milk
is 9 cents per quart, 12 tickets may be sold for $1. Some of the
dairies in the Pacific coast cities charge a definite sum monthly for a
quart of milk each day, the price being the same for each calendar
month.
FLO U R, W H E A T .

Flour is quoted by the eighth-barrel bag for about 30 of the cities,
by the eighth-barrel bag with a few firms quoting fourth-barrel bags
in a few cities, by the fourth-barrel bag with an occasional firm
quoting half-barrel bags for some of the Pacific coast cities, by the
20-pound bag by five firms in Indianapolis, and by the sixteenthbarrel bag by an occasional firm in a few of the cities. The weight
of the various-sized bags varies slightly in different localities; the half­
barrel bag weighs from 96 to 98* pounds, the fourth-barrel bag from
48 to 49 pounds, and the eighth-barrel bag from 23 to 24\ pounds.
These weights are in some instances net and in others gross. Great
quantities of flour are sold in sixteenth and in thirty-second barrel
bags, particularly in the eastern cities, but the eighth-barrel bag is a
very popular size in most of the cities for which prices were secured,
and for ready comparison that size has been quoted where possible.
In^, few of the cities the price of flour is “ protected” ; that is, the
flour manufacturer fixes a minimum selling price for the retailer.
The quotations from each firm are for a definite brand or brands
of equivalent grade throughout the period for which prices are




42

RETAIL PRIC ES, 1907 TO DECEM BER, 1916.

quoted, except as indicated. The name of the brand quoted has
been entered in connection with the price. Where a merchant has
quoted a brand manufactured especially for his trade or carrying
his firm name the flour has been entered as “ special brand” in order
not to disclose the identity of the firm furnishing information to the
bureau.
CORN M EAL.

The com meal for which prices are given is bulk or bag meal. Meal
in cartons or packages is coming more into common use and is now
quoted by a number of firms. The color of the meal handled varies,
generally speaking, according to the locality, yellow being sold as a
rule in cities of the North, white in southern cities, and both white
and yellow in Denver, Salt Lake City, and the cities on the Pacific
coast.
The price of corn meal is quoted in this report on a 1-pound basis.
These figures have been derived from the price charged by the
dealer for the quantity of corn meal most in demand among his cus­
tomers and represent a great variety of units of sale. In New Eng­
land cities and in other northern cities the amounts sold are usually
small, being as a rule from 2 to 5 pounds, the 5 cents’ worth, or the
10 cents’ worth. In most southern cities sales of 10 pounds or more
predominate, while in the cities of the far West reports on any other
unit than 10 pounds are exceptional. No prices for corn meal are
reported for Scranton, as it is little used in that city.
RICE.

Practically all the quotations are on domestic rice grown princi­
pally in Louisiana and Texas. Prices are on the full grain only.
The rice for which prices are given is mostly loose rice, with occa­
sional quotations on the pound package where the package forms
the bulk of sales. Although prices are quoted on the pound basis,
in many, if not most, cases the usual quantity sold is greater than 1
pound.
PO TATOES.

All quotations for potatoes are for the article known in many
localities as “ Irish” potatoes, which signifies the “ white” potato in
contradistinction to the “ sweet.” The extensive variety of Irish
potatoes on the market and the fact that retailers do not confine
their buying to one variety have made it impracticable to quote vari­
eties or grades.
New potatoes have been quoted only when they form the bulk
of the sales. This is usually when new potatoes grown in or near
the locality are plentiful, as the price of new potatoes shipped from




SCOPE OF STUDY A N D M E T H O D OF O BTAIN IN G PRICES.

43

a distance is generally prohibitive to the mass of trade in the stores
reporting.
The peck, or a fractional part of a peck, is the unit of sale for
practically all eastern cities except New York. In the West potatoes
are sold by weight, using the 100-pound lot as a basis. In the west­
ern cities reporting there is a demand during the summer for smaller
quantities than the 100-pound lot, which results in sales of 25 cents’,
50 cents’ , and 1 dollar’s worth.
In New York the unit of sale for Irish potatoes varies materially
from store to store, and also in some cases from month to month
in the same store. For example, in New York the amount sold
for a quart varies from 2| to 4 pounds, and in the same store
the number of pounds of new potatoes sold for a quart is generally
less than the number of pounds of old potatoes sold for a quart.
Prices for New York, except when quoted by the peck, are reduced
to a pound basis.
ONIONS.

The quotations on onions are for the variety in common use. In
most localities the yellow onion predominates, but in some cities the
red onion forms the bulk of sales. New onions from the South, of
other varieties, have been quoted when they replace th§ yellow or
red onions.
The unit of sale varies with different firms, being pound, quart,
or one-fourth peck. When new onions come into the market the
unit of sale frequently changes from the quart or the one-fourth
peck to the pound basis.
BEAN S.

All quotations for beans are for the article commonly known as
“ navy” or “ pea” beans. The prices quoted are on the pound or
on the quart basis, both units of sale prevailing in nearly all cities.
In many cases where prices are given on the pound basis the usual
quantity sold is greater than 1 pound.
PRU NES.

The prunes for which prices are given are mostly California primes,
although in the western division quotations are also given on Oregon
or Italian prunes. All quotations are on the loose prunes, on a pound
basis, although in many, if not in most, cases the sales are for quan­
tities greater than 1 pound.
Quotations are given on the size of prunes having the heaviest sales
in the stores reporting prices. The size is entered in connection
with the price.




44

RETAIL PRigES, 1907 TO DECEMBER, 1916.
RAISIN S.

The raisins for which prices are given are the seeded raisins, in
packages. The net weight of these packages varies from 15 to 16
ounces in the “ pound” package, and from 10 to 12 ounces in the
smaller package. The net weight is entered in connection with the
price.
SUGAR.

All quotations are for granulated sugar and are on a pound basis.
In most cases these prices per pound have been derived from prices
as reported by the dealers on the quantities most in demand. Such
quantities vary in the cities represented. The common units of
sale in most cities are 25-€ent, 50-cent, and $1 lots. In certain
cities, notably New York and Philadelphia, smaller quantities are
reported as the usual units of sale.
COFFEE.

The coffee for which prices are given is pure roasted coffee mostly
in bulk, with quotations from a few firms on package coffee, where
loose coffee has a relatively small sale.
The quotations from each firm are for a definite grade throughout
the period for which prices are quoted, except as indicated. Where
a merchant has quoted a brand or blend manufactured especially
for his trade, or carrying his firm name, the coffee has been entered
as “ special blend,” in order not to disclose the identity of the firm
furnishing information to the bureau.
All quotations are on the pound basis.
TEA.

The tea for which prices are given is principally loose, with quota­
tions from some firms on package tea, where the loose tea has com­
paratively little sale. Quotations throughout the period for which
prices are quoted are on the tea having the heaviest sale in each store.
Many quotations are on mixed or blended tea.
Most quotations are on the pound basis. In the package tea,
however, many quotations are on a smaller quantity, and the net
weight of the package is entered in connection with the price.
BREAD WEIGHTS AND PRICES.

The weights of wheat bread, tabulated separately by cities, firms,
and brands, as shown in Table B, are the weights at which the respec­
tive breads were scaled on the 15th of each month from January to
December, 1916, and, where available, corresponding information for
the same months of 1915 is shown for comparison. This scaling weight




SCOPE OF STUDY A N D M E T H O D OF O B TA IN IN G PRICES.

45

is the weight of the loaf before baking. While it would be highly
desirable to present the weight of the loaf as actually purchased by
the consumer, the complications involved in the relation of the scaled
weight to the weight of the bread when it passes over the retailer’s
counter were found to be such that it was impossible to do so. The
loss of weight in baking varies with the formula, with the style of loaf,
and with the temperature of the oven. A further element of uncer­
tainty affecting weights enters before the consumer actually gets the
loaf. The weight, of course, varies with the time intervening between
the removal of the loaf from the oven and its delivery to the con­
sumer, the loss by evaporation also being partly determined by the
conditions under which the bread is kept and by the state of the
atmosphere.
The customary loss in baking is variously estimated by bakers,
but it may be said that a loaf scaled at 18 ounces will, when sold, if
handled under ordinary conditions, weigh not far from 16 ounces, and
a loaf scaled at 16 ounces will, when baked and cooled, weigh about
14J ounces. As noted above, however, the range of loss varies
widely.
The prices of bread, as shown in Table C, are the prices of the 16ounce loaf in the dough, as computed from the weights reported.
From Tables B and C of this report all fancy, special, graham,
rye, and restaurant breads are excluded. All wrapped and so-called
“ French” breads are so designated.
In the use of these data it must be borne clearly in mind that
weight is only one factor entering into the bread question as an
element in the study of prices. The quality of mateiials used varies
widely and is likely to be reflected in the weight at which the loaf is
scaled.
With few exceptions, the most representative bakeries in every city
included in this report have promptly furnished to the bureau informa­
tion concerning bread weights on the 15th of each month.
DRY GOODS.

In this report prices are given of eight articles of dry goods: Calico,
percale, apron gingham, dress gingham, muslin, sheeting, sheets, and
outing flannel. The prices shown are the retail prices at which
these articles were sold on May 15 and October 15, 1916, in the 46
cities covered by this report. For purposes of comparison the prices
on October 15, 1915, the date of the last previous report, have been
entered.
The merchants who kindly furnished the information for this
report were, in most instances, personally visited by agents of the
bureau, and the stores selected are large and representative depart­
ment stores. Stores regularly handling large lines of the goods




46

RE T A IL PRIC ES, 1907 TO D ECEM BER, 1916.

mentioned above were considered representative for the purposes
of the report. In some cities this includes all the large department
stores. Stores dealing largely in mill ends or seconds are not included.
The prices quoted are the regular retail prices, and in no case
“ cut-rate” or “ special-sale” prices, or prices on mill ends or seconds.
The articles upon which prices are quoted are goods which main­
tain the same standard of quality from year to year. The varieties
shown are those having a large sale in the store from which prices
are quoted. Mill or brand names are shown in connection with the
prices, except in a few cases where a brand is manufactured especially
for one firm or carries a firm name. In such cases the description
entered is “ private brand” in order not to disclose the identity of
the firm furnishing information to the bureau.
All quotations on piece goods are on the yard basis and the width
is given in the tabulation. Prices on sheets are per sheet and, with a
few exceptions, are on the 81 by 90 size. The size is entered in con­
nection with the price.
COAL.

This report shows the increase in retail prices of coal during the
period since 1907, and gives actual prices of coal on January 15 and
July 15, 1916. For comparative purposes prices are also entered for
the corresponding dates in 1915. The prices shown are those quoted
for retail trade for household use. The table of prices shows Pennsyl­
vania anthracite white-ash coal both in stove size and in chestnut
size; bituminous coal of several kinds; and in a few cities other
varieties, such as Colorado anthracite and subbituminous or black
lignite. In most cases prices are quoted for sales “ in ton lots” and
“ in half-ton lots,” but bituminous coal is quoted in Memphis and New
Orleans “ in 10-barrel lots” of 1,800 pounds and “ in 5-barrel lots”
of 900 pounds, and in Pittsburgh “ in 25-bushel lots” of 1,900 pounds
and in smaller lots by the number of bushels for $2. The prices were
quoted by coal dealers who supplied the information at the request
of the bureau. In some cities practically all sales for household use
were of anthracite coal and in other cities of bituminous coal.
Bituminous coal is reported only for cities in which there is consider­
able demand for bituminous coal for household use. The coal dealers
in each city were asked to quote prices on the kind of bituminous coal
usually sold for household use. The prices quoted are for coal
delivered to consumers, but do not include charges for storing the
coal in cellar or coal bin where an extra handling was necessary,
except as noted in connection with the price quotation.1
i Previous reports, published b y the Bureau o f Labor Statistics, containing data relative to retail prices
of coal for household use, are Bulletins Nos. 105, 106, 108, 110, 113, 115, 125, 132 136, 138, 140, 156, 184, and

GAS.

This report gives prices of gas for household use on April 15, 1916,
and for purposes of comparison the prices on October 15, 1915, the
date of the last previous report, have been entered. The prices of gas
have heretofore been shown for April 15 and October 15 of each year,
but beginning with 1916 prices will be secured but once a year, on
April 15. The prices quoted are the net rates charged for gas for
household use as distinguished from use by manufacturing plants and
industrial establishments. Where a sliding scale of prices, based on
amount consumed, was reported, the price for the smallest quantity
has been quoted, except in Salt Lake City, where the quotation has
been noted, as the smallest quantity is less than the amount usually
consumed for domestic purposes. The prices are the same for gas
for illuminating, cooking, and heating purposes, except as noted in
the table. Prices are in most cases for manufactured gas, but natural
gas has also been quoted where that is in general use. The data
were furnished by the gas companies, who kindly responded to the
bureau’s request for this information.1

EXPLANATION OF TABLES.
, Table A.—Retail prices of the principal articles of food on the 15th
of each monthj January to December, 1915, and January to December,
1916j by cities and by firms {pp. 50 to 311).—This table includes 46
of the most important industrial cities in the various sections of the
United States. For each city prices are quoted for 28 principal
articles of food. Prices are quoted for the 15th of each month,
January to December, 1916, and for comparative purposes prices
on the corresponding dates in 1915 have been entered. When the
15th fell on Sunday or on a holiday, the prices quoted were for the
16th of the month.
The 46 cities are arranged in alphabetical order, and under the
various cities the articles follow a uniform order, beginning with
fresh meats. The particular grade or description of each article is
shown in connection with the price quotations. Great care was
taken to secure prices throughout the period covered for an article
of as nearly uniform grade or quality as possible in each store, as
changes in quality are, of course, reflected in prices.
Price quotations were secured from several firms in each city. In
order to avoid identification, names of firms are not shown, but
each firm has been given a number, which enables one to follow the
prices quoted throughout the period for which a firm has been fur­
nishing price quotations, either for the present report or for the
preceding reports, covering the period from 1907 to June, 1916.
1 Previous reports, published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, containing data relative to prices of
gas for household use, are Bulletins Nos. 105, 106, 108, 110, 113, 115, 125, 132, 136, 138, 140, 156, 184, and 197.

RETAIL PRICES, 1907 TO DECEMBER, 1916.

Two articles are included in this table which are not carried
into the tables showing relative prices of food; these articles are
storage eggs, and leg of lamb (“ yearling” ).
Table B.—Bread weights: Scaling weight (weight of dough before
baking), in ounces, of the 'principal brands of wheat bread on the loth
of each month, January to December, 1915, and January to December,
1916, by cities and by firms and brands {pp. 312 to 331).—This table
shows the scaling weight, in ounces, of the principal brands of wheat
bread in the cities covered by this report. The weights are quoted
for the 15th of each month, January to December, 1916, and for
comparative purposes weights on the corresponding dates in 1915
have been entered where available. When the 15th fell on Sunday
or on a holiday, the weights quoted were for the 16th of the month.
Weight quotations were secured from several representative
bakeries in each city. In order to avoid identification, names of
firms and brands are not shown, but each firm has been given a num­
ber, and each brand reported by a firm has been designated by a
letter.
Table O,— Bread prices: Prices of 16 ounces of bread on the 15th of
each month, January to December, 1915, and January to December,
1916., by cities and by firms and brands {pp. 332 to SJfl).—This table
shows the price of 16 ounces of bread in the dough computed ,on the
weights of bread as shown in Table B. These prices are shown
for the same brands and for the same dates as in the preceding
table.
Table D.—Retail prices of 8 articles of dry goods on October 15,1915,
and May 15 and October 15, 1916, by cities and by firms {pp. 31+8

the 46 cities covered by this report. Quotations are given for
October 15, 1915, and May 15 and October 15, 1916.
The 8 articles included in the table are articles in common use in
the normal household, and the brands selected for quotations are
those which maintain the same quality from year to year. Calico is
little used in some cities, but has considerable sale in others. Where
there is a variation in the price of light and dark prints of the same
brand of calico it is noted in the tabulation.
Quotations were secured from the representative department stores
in each city. To avoid identification, firm names are not shown, but
each firm has been given a number which will enable one to follow
the prices quoted from time to time.
Table E.—Retail prices of coal, for household use, on January 15
and July 15, 1915, and January 15 and July 15, 1916, by cities and by
firms {pp. 395 to 425).—This table shows prices of coal in the cities
for which retail prices of food are shown. Prices are quoted for Penn­

sylvania anthracite white-ash coal, stove size, Pennsylvania anthra­
cite white-ash coal, chestnut size, and bituminous coal, for January 15
and July 15, 1916, and for comparative purposes prices on the
corresponding dates in 1915 have been entered. In some cities prac­
tically no bituminous coal is used for household purposes, and in
others practically no Pennsylvania anthracite white-ash coal is
used. Bituminous coal is reported only for cities in which there is
considerable demand for bituminous coal for household use. In a
few cities Colorado anthracite and in one or two cities subbituminous
or black lignite and other varieties of coal are quoted.
Prices in most cases are quoted for coal in “ ton lots” and in “ half­
ton lots.” In connection with prices the number of pounds per ton
and per half ton is also shown.
The quotations were furnished by coal dealers in each city, who
responded to a request from the bureau for this information. To
avoid identification, firm names are not shown, but each firm has
been given a number which enables one to follow the prices quoted
throughout the period for which a firm has been furnishing price
quotations, either for the present report or for preceding reports.
The prices quoted are for coal delivered to consumers, but do not
include charges for storing the coal in cellar or coal bin where an
extra handling is necessary, except as noted in connection with the
price quotation.
