THE WHOLESALE BUSINESS
HOUSE OF R. & J. CUMMINGS,
One of the Most Extensive Jobbing
Firms in Boots, Shoes, Rubbers, &c.,
in Western America. Its Origin,
Progress and Unequalled Facilities.
A Highly Important Acquisition to
the Commercial Resources of the
Famous "Corn City."
During our very pleasant duty of re
viewing the immense oommeroial re
sources and unsurpassed facilities of tho
leading wholesale houses in Toledo,
with a view of unquestionably establish
ing the advantage afforded by Western
markets over those of the East in
which mission we have zealously labored
for ovor twelve months, with the moat
gratifying evidences cf success it ha
not, hitherto, fallen to our lot to refer
to the very important class of trade
comprised in thn text of the present
article. Heuee, we deem ourselves
highly complimented with the priv
ilodge of first introducing to onr reader
a wholesale house, which, in point of
business aud commercial standing, rank .
second to nouo throughout the entire ex
tout of Western America. And need wo
repent it is the eminent and established
firm of R. A J. CoMMifos to which we
allude gentlemsn, whoso local popu
larity exceptional eommorcial aptitude
and universally established reputation
for integrity and financial soundness,
kuvo alike contributed to the maturing
of their present immense business re
lations. As in tho rase of most job
bing houses of high standing and un
surpawod magnitude ( like the mustard
seed in the parable ) this house haa
gorminated from a comparatively hum-,
bio begiuning a significant proof of
the existence of thoBe vital principles
which nourish and tend to a healthy
and gratifying maturity. Some nine
teen years ago Mr. W. W. Griffith,
( now president of tho Morohant's Na
tional Bank,) became tvwocintod with
Mossrs. R. A J. Cummikos, . aud
launched tho present business then
the only jobbing house of tho kind in
the city at 70 Summit street, adopt
ing the firm stylo of Griffith A Co., and
running a trade of about $150,000 au
ually. Three years subsequently Mr.
Griffith retired, and the present firm of
11. A J. Cumjiinos Biiccoedod to the en
tiro business, which they have since run
and still retain in thoir own names.
Prosperity attending them, two years
after Mr. Griffith's retirement, thev
found it uecsiary to secure increased
accommodation for their rapidly im
proving trade, an.l accordingly removed
to tlt-'ir present position, in Bronson's
Block 120 A 122 Summit street, and 75
A 77 Water street. Now in posession
of tho utnnst facilities, with compara
tively unlimited resources in tho way of
capital, thoir characteristic enterprise
kept fully apace with tho iuc.roa.siug
demand ujKin them, until, it is not in the
least too much to say, that with an aver
age stock on hand of about $200, 0(H)
in value, they aro now doing a trade
of over onk million doliabs per an
num. Xjr Ls thii gratifying evidence
all. Their trade is still growing each
year the more speedy development of
which will aswiredly continue and in
crease as tho dealers, in tliis and sur
rounding States bocouiu more alive to
tho fact, that they cau buy cheaper, and
to infinite advantage in selection, from
this house than though they personally
negotiate direct, with manufactnors
Messrs. R. A. J. Cramsus securing"
overy conceivable advantage charaoteric
of immense pturehases, regular demand
and unlimited cash to lay down. East
ern representatives may boast in respect
to their resources and facilities, but w
fearlessly assert, ou our own response
bility, that the house we refer to has
probably only one or two equals fin
Chicago,) but certainly none eloe to
equal or excel it in any respect tlirough
out the entire West. Their extensive
warehouse is a very imposing structure,
with basement and four upper stories
180 feet long aud 33 ft. wide, with tha
finest facilities possible for shipment
from either Summit or Water, streets.
Most of their goods on hand being
boxed up we were unable to make an
inspection, to pass even an imperfect
opinion upon them but had we viewed
ever so great a display and posessod the
utmost competency to judge, we should
certainly have yielded onr opinion to
the popular verdict which is best read
in the increasing demand made upon
the Iioubo for its goods. The principul of
the firm give the business personals su
pervision and are gentlemen of high
standing in the city, the leading part
ner having recently beeu elected to the
important office of county and city
treasurer, whilo the firm have also the
association of Mr. J. W. Cumminob
familiarly knowa as Judgo Cumminqs
who succeeded to au interest in the con
cern on tho 1st of Jauuary, last. This
house is represented on the road by six
commercial genllcmon, whose peculiar
provinces are as follows: Mr. W. W.
Ainsworth takes part of Indiana and
Michigan. Mr. J. M. Kenyon, tha
Wabash line and its tributaries. Mr.
R. J. Fulton, tho Dayton A Michigan
road, west of Ohio. Mr. A. L. Van

along the Lake Shore road. Mr. Geo.
Aiken, north Michigan, and 8. P. Stu

also a manufactory iu another portion
of the city, under tha foremanship ot
Mr. Taft, where fine cal and kid work,
is executed, and we learn that a very
fine selection of spring goods were jaat
being laid in. Houses so extensive sa
tbe foregoing which frequently ships
from $5,000 to $7,000 worth of goods in
a day cannot be over estimated in
city of such rapid growth as character
is tizoi Toledo and more particularly as
that city stands so highly favored as a
great railroad center, for its easy and
direct communication' by land or water
with any or every towrA, city or State
in the Union. Gentlemen you have oar
hearty oongratulations. .i i
