A. M. FITCH.
In describing the business Interests of
Wellington we cannot Interest our readers
more, than by giving tbe history of one of
the leading mercantile industries of tbe
town. Twenty-one years ago this summer
Mr. A. M. Fitch put a stock of clothing
and furnishing goods, into the only avail
able room at that time, a small wooden
18x24 room, one of the Huntington relics,
brought here on wheels, situated on the
South side oi Liberty street, and com
menced business under the name of the
"New York Clothing House." Prevl
0U8 to that time the clothing business of
this section of the country, had been con
ducted on a bantering principle, charge
all that conscience, or want oi conscience
would allow, and take all that could be
obtained. Merchant and customer would
wrestle over the price uf goods, as fiercely
as Jacob and tbe unknown wrestled at
Peniel, until both becoming weary of tbe
contest, a compromise would be effected
at some point between what was first ask
ed and what was first offered, and the
weary customer would wend his way
homeward, feeling that if he bad paid two
prices for his suit, he had saved a "right
smsrt sum" by his sagacity, argument and
physical and mental endurence, and the
cheeky merchant would stretch his weary
carcass upon a couch in some secluded
corner and deplore the condition ol a bus
iness that required the asking of twenty
five dollars for a suit of clothes that he
would have to sell for fourteen, fifteen,
eighteen or twenty dollars, according to
the endurance or bantering qualities of
his customer, or the amount of time he
could spare to conduct a trading wrestle.
The clothing business of the country was
in such repute, that any man, no matter
what his nationality or previous condl
tion of servitude, who would engage in it,
was dubbed a "Jew" tad unworthy to be
believed and the finger of derision was
pointed at him, as though he was respon
sible for the murder committed on Cal
sry, eighteen centuries ago. Mr.. Fitch
believed that such a condition was en
tirely wrong, that one man's money was
as good as another's; that the principle of
making a pleasant,' agreeable customer
pay mora fol good than a disagreeably

insulting banterer was meaner than steal
ing and that individual business should
be conducted as honorably as the Govern
ment sells its postage stamps, or a railroad
company its tickets, one price to all, Mr.
Fitch was the first Clothing merchant of
Lorain County, to adopt the One Price,
Fair Price System. Buch a system at that
time was considered an Innovation, and
caused more comment than a hand organ
with monkey accompaniment ' Merchants
within competing distance sut up a Howl
and complained in the wholesale markets
that Fitch had ruined prices and demoral
ized trade. Nevertheless the people gen
erally appreciated the "innovation" and
came from the surrounding country to
trade, when bargaining did not produce
the ennui of the fighting of a battle. Mr.
Fitch soon found that bis room was too
small and he rented the old Bank build
ing, and built on an addition which be
thought would afford sufficient room, but
in three years bis business hod Increased
so that more room was needed. He rent
ed the largest room in the Union Block
but in a few years he found his quarters
too small, and in company with Messrs.
Yischer and Oiterbacher, he purchased
a site on the South side ot Liberty street
and built the commodious reom which
has always been known as the New York
Clothing House, where he did a thriving
business for several years. Five years
ago he sold his stock and went west, hop
ing to find a better country and healthier
climate, but after traveling from Wash
ington Territory to Mexico, he concluded
that Lorain County wis as good a place as
could be found, and returned and engag
ed in the Clothing and Famishing busi
ness In Elyrla. This spring he reopened
tbe old store in Wellington where will be
found everything needed in the line of
men's and boys' clothing and furnishing
goods, all Strictly New, of the beet work
manship, and at the lowest possible
cash prices. Mr. Fitch spends several
days each year with one of the best de
signers of patterns, in Rohcester, New
York, has his patterns made expressly for
him, and bis work done on contract, and
prides himself on furnishing clothing
equal In every respect, and superior in
many, to tbe best tailor work, and at the
