Stanton Merchants Have Gone
Back to the Idea.
SCHOFIELD MUST SHUT UP SHOP
Although There Had Deen an Agree
ment to Stay out of Trade or For
feit $100 , the Losa of Farmers
Forced Friends to Renew.
Stanton merchants are again buyIng -
Ing butter and eggs. Johnson Bros ,
led the procession laatSaturday when
they put up signs announcing that
they wanted the products of dairy and
hen. They were actuated to'thln move
by n loss of about seventy farmer
customers since stores quit buying
butter nnd eggs , nnd the complaints
of others. As a fact there has boon
n good deal of complaint from the
first that Mr. Schoflold was not payIng -
Ing as much as the market justified.
How much of these claims were mer
ited wo are not prepared to stnto.
It Is evident , however , that farmers
were dissatisfied with the falling off
in general trade and from many goIng -
Ing to other towns who formerly
came to Stanton to trade. Other mer
chants state that Mr. Schofield did
exactly us ho agreed and paid ns
much for produce In his line ns the
market justified. Ono merchant has
stated to us thnt ho watched quota
tions closely from the time the but
ter and egg store was started nnd
knows to an absolute certainty that
higher prices could not hnvo been
paid without loss. By the terms of
the contract the merchant breaking
away from the agreement was to pay
the other morchnnts $100. This
amount wns paid by Johnson Bros.
Monday morning and was divided
among the other merchants. This ,
however , does not help Mr. Schofield
In the least nnd ho Is practically
forced out of business. Stanton
