T. A. Summerville of Hunter,
"Walton & Co. explained a few
cute reasons" for the high cost of
butter and eggs at the federal in
quiry before Master-in-Chancery
Summerville said his firm sent
out men early in the spring to buy
up the entire output of the cream
eries around Chicago.
They promise to pay the cream
eries half a cent a Oound more for
butter than the market quotation,
which must sound real generous
to the creameries.
Having thus cornered the sup
ply, the wholesale hi en set about
fixing up that market quotation
so they'll get a good rake-off.
They arrange-with the Chicago -Butter
& Egg Board, the Elgin
Board of Trade and the N. Y.
Board of Trade to get market
quotations from 1 to 2 cents less
tfhan actual inarket prices.
Cute game, isn t it. Monopolize
the butter and tgg supply, pay the
creameries on a market price
that's fixed up to suit yourself,
and then soak the consumer right
behind the ear.
