Help with Yiddish Translation #lodz #poland

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I have posted a section >from the Brzeziny Yizkor Book on Viewmate
at: http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/source/vm790.html

The file number is VM790

The appropriate parts, written in Yiddish, are underlined.
I would like help in understanding

1) what is a town merchant as opposed to a cloth merchant, iron
merchant, etc. Is it a general merchant? a stall keeper?

2) what is a weight fee?

Please answer to me directly at fbussgang@...

Thanks, Fay Bussgang
