Red Cloud, Webster County,
Red Cloud Merchants Organize for
Their Mutual Protection.
The retail merchants of Bed Cloud
met at the Gardner House last evening
and organized a branch of The Retail
Merchants Association of Iowa, Neb
raska and Kansas. The system in use
by this association has for its purpose
the protection of retail merchants. A
by laws famished bj the general asso
ciation was offered and adopted. Thn
first Thursday evening of each month
was selected as the time for holding the
regular monthly meeting, after which
the following were chosen as officers:
J. L. Miner president, A. Morbart
vice president. E. M. Perkins, secre
tary, Frank Parker treasurer, F. E.
GoUe, Cha. Wiener, G. V. Lindsey.
C. L. Getting, G. H. Whitsos, executive
This association uses no dishonorable
mein- to force collections or settle
ments, !.ut the merchants propose to

There is no law compelling merchants
to sell their goods on credit. There is
no law forbidding merchants refusing
credit to anv person they see fit, and
whenr. merchant sella hie goods on 1
credit it is as an accommodation, to the
consumer, and if such consumer has no
appreciation of the favor extended and
willfully neglects to make a reasonable
and honorable adjustment of his in
debtedness, then he should be com
pelled to pay as he buys. It is better
for him and much more profitable for
the merchant, ilany a poor worthy
man has been refused credit for the
necessities of lite because of the mer
chant's unpleasant experience iUh bad
debtors, but this system will tend to
obviate all that, because the man who
docs respect his credit will be known
and have a standing among merchants,
while the "dead beat1' and others ot
his kind will also be known to the mem
bers of this association and be abso
lutely refused credit, no matter if he
moves to another town or state his rep
utation as poor pay will follow him and
the merchants in such new places of
residence will al-o refuse him credit.
This association issues no ratings on
individuals. It issues a regular and
legal Monthly Abstract of unsettled
accounts. Each member agrees to for
feit twenty dollars to his branch as a
penalty, in case he extends credit to a
person whose unsettled account appears
iti the abstract and no account can ap
pear therein until the debtor has had a
full and fair opportunity to go to the
merchant he owes and in some way
arrange such indebtedness. The man
who can pay and won't pay and ths
man who cannot pay, but will not goto
the merchant and state his condition
and make effort to arrange, is the per
son this association is after.
This association does not interfere
with the credit of men who deal honor
ably, no matter if they are slow; neither
does it in any way regulate prices. It
sole object is to compel men to be hon
est with merchants or to pay spot cash
for goods purchased. Something of
this kind has been needed for a long
time and this system willSrork. "In
combination there is strength." The
members have the saceees or failare
of tbi.a system in their own hands.
Wherever merchants have properly
combined the system has proven a great
success. The west is being carefallv
covered by this association, and the
merchants in all small towns are vis
ited and solicited to join the eoaaty
