May 25, 1901. Short Weights. The "nominal" system of calling tinned goods "one's" and "two's" instead of by their weight has been protested against by this journal, notwithstanding it has found favour amongst some persons of light and leading in the trade. A smaller quantity than 1lb can be sold for "one's" and a "two" tin is a mere numeral and has nothing to do with the weight of the contents. The public soon learns where the cheapest "one's" can be obtained , not the "one's" with most value for money, penalising the honest tradesman. {{COUNTERPOINT }}
