that in the early spring he made a
contract with the I'abst people,
whereby he was to sell his ice that
he had at Caldwell at such a price as
would drive the North Enid Ice

him ice at prices which would com-
pensate him for his loss in killing the
north town opposition, and that now

Company to stop, and lie is already
for the I'abst Company to fulfill
their part of the contract, but instead
