SHARP RISE AT SALE EFFECT OX RETAIL TRADE O.C. HAMILTON, this day. The sharp rise in the prices for fat cattle at the Frankton sale on Tuesday will have a serious effect on'the retail trade, according to representatives of the trade. Butchers were faced with two alternatives if the rise in prices continued, either to continue to carry the present loss or close down altogether, said Mr. W. R. Shattoek, a member of the executive of the South Auckland Butchers' Association. The position was very disturbing to butchers whose hands were tied, by the meat price order. Mr. Shattoek added that butchers had previously approached the Price Tribunal in regard to seasonal rises in wholesale prices, but they had been given no satisfaction. Another representative of the trade commented that the prices at which butchers were compelled to sell under the price order would need to be raised by 2d a lb if there was to be any profit.
