Topeka merchants are beginning to take hold of the rebate system for systematically paying the car fare of out of town customers, with a vim. It is said to be a certainty that the plan will be in operation in Topeka within a tew weeks. John S. Creswell, the expert who has the work in charge here, reports unexpected success. In a etatemen made the State Journal today, Mr, Creswell said: "The rebate system as a factor in the business life of this community Is now assured. The matter of paying the railroad fare of all visitors who come to Topeka to spend their money has been widely discussed by the busi ness element for some months and has resulted in a practical unanimity of sentiment In favor of-the introduction of the system. "There are two forms of the rebate system in operation in this country One is known as the Creswell system which is based on the theory of co operation by . the entire business com munity for the common good, and in which all business houses who wi-sh to co-operate are admitted to member ship. This system is nanaiea Dy a bank er banks, the rneTchants- only du ties being to sell goods and enter salf-s in rebate books upon request, au pay ments of rebates are made by the bank during banking hours, and by an agency of the bank at other no'jra. The coct under this system averages slightly in excess of 2 per cent, wnil the maximum possible cost is 5 per cent. Under this pystem fares will be paid from any point on earth if -the shopper only spends money enough. "The other plan is known as the wild cat' vstem. Under the plan only city merchants participate, and fare are rrnld only 40 miles. The term 'wild mt' n rises from the fact that the theory is to pay such fares -where a shopper r-pends as much as J20. In- some in stances the tax on its members rises to 10 and 12 per cent In exceptional cases. Even the average cost in some vears has exceeded 5 per cent. Among other contracts closed vp during the day, was one with the Bank of Topeka to pay the rebates to out of town customers, and to collect the pro rata held from the various meraoeis, KAXSAX SHOOTS A WOMAN.
