The Senior Partner of our House, MR. 0. A. HALE, haa gone East to see to
your interests. The means at his command are almost illimitable, or at any rate com-
mensurate with your requirements. The whole purpose of his journey is to fully
satisfy all skeptics with regard to the plenitude of our resources, and their adaptation
to the wants of the people. The IMPERATIVE INSTRUCTIONS in his "FARE-
WELL LETTER are as follows : Sell the goods ; carry out the same principles
with which we started — do as you have always done since our advent on the coast.
We want THE ENDURING CONFIDENCE of the people, and let all your exertions
tend to that end. Let all other institutions severely alone, and on your own merits
prove that the CRITERION IS THE HOUSE FOR THE PEOPLE, bearing in mind
that all you promise is, "A SAVOR OF LIFE UNTO LIFE, OR DEATH UNTO
DEATH '.'' Sty nothing that you cannot carry out in its entirety ; don't be as fcolish
as those who advertise to supply goods to a whole State, when, in fact, they cannot
supply even a second-class Restaurant. Have nothing to do with, or lend yourselves to
such a mislead, for as sure as you do the INTELLIGENCE OF THE PEOPLE will
rebel, and you will find the CRITERION a waste place, or remembered like other
House?, only as a fraud. I would suggest that our employes be gentlemen ;. that their
chief endeavor shall be to make your patrons feel perfectly at home in their visits, and
let them understand that they subserve the interests of the House be3t by sending their
visitors away pleased. Don't, for goodness sake, allow cramming *, don't force an article
down their throat— LET OUR GOODS TELL THEIR OWN TALE. A sign, bearing
the inscription : " FREE TO COME AND GO," on the front of your new house would
indicate the full purport of what I mean. Let 'our House be a GREAT PUBLIC
HIGHWAY, where the wayfarer cannot err. In conclusion, let me advise you to
inaugurate a BIG SALE— understand me, a VERITABLE CLEARING OUT, accord-
ing to my verbal instructions. SHAKE THE VERY CITADEL ; let there be a BIG
DISCOUNT— for, with the CASH at my disposal, and the advantage of personal buy
ing, cheap as your present stock may be, I hope to fill in at a far lower figure. There-
fore, "SELL 'EM SHORT I"
-y"" -. , ' y ■„,'. . • '
I shall not purchase for the first few days, but . shall make it my endeavor to
get at the pulse of the market. . Will write dh arrival. .-'
Your affectionate brother,
-J In accordance with tlie above instructions, we shall throw the
whole of our Stock upon the market, and dispose of it by a MONST
SALE, opeiing on the 27th NOVEMBER, on the premises known as the
" CRITERION," No. 812 X street, between Eighth an. Ninth. : See
us at once.. (Signed,) - ;

During the sale the "CRITERION" will open at 9 A. M,
and close at 6 P. M, sharp.

Notice to Buyers!
-y: ■ ' .
. *
•.- ' — o
The system of selecting goods from samples mailed free by the city merchant,
and of receiving them out of our store by mail, express or freight, just as they are
delivered in the city by wagons, works so well that customers are under no necessity
of buying where they may happen to be.
Weinstock & Lubin
■. - - ■•"■• " '- ' ;
Place their great facilities at the service of buyers everywhere. Samples are, sent,
if practicable, if not, then means are used to ensure a correct and advantageous supply
of whatever may be wanted, from a pair of shoes to the furnishing of a house ; from
the matching of a ribbon to a complete outfit. Not a village store but a great city
warehouse is thus brought to the very door of the remotest country home.
Those who are accustomed to buy of country merchants, little imagine what con-
stitutes the stock of a \. ' ~°i J J
It is not enough that the goods are new, they must be good as well. It is not
enough that they are good, they must be fashionable ; and nothing is fashionable that
is not fresh from the maker. . A country merchant dare not get new goods in till old
ones are sold ; but the city merchant must not let anything ever become old on his
hands. If a particular article will not sell at a profit, it must go at a loss, and quickly,
too, or the los 3 will be greater ; it must be sold, and his way of selling it is to mark it
down. In this way all wants are served. Those who want the newest articles get them
in perfection at the quick-selling city price, and those who have less legard to style and
want their money to go still further, can generally find among the marked down goods,
at half or two-thirds country prices, and what may still be fairly fresh.
■ -
The first requisite of a successful business is, that prices be under, rather than
over the market. The best of all advertisements is to be under the market ; the worst
burden is to be over the market. If a merchant has been conspicuously successsful,
it may be safely assumed that his store is a good place to buy at. He keeps costly
goods at prices which seem high to those who are accustomed to plain goods only,
but his heaviest stocks are of plain goods, and his prices are so exactly right that he
-.-.—»*. ■■■gw«a^«^,»;._.- is^g--w«JC' ■!?.. i\*'"'--'.-J-;'*'-'*l^-X^^ga^^i-a^<a^
THERE IS NO DEVIATION. For the purpose of buying, a letter written is as good
as a journey to Sacramento or San Francisco.
Trade by mail, express and freight, has been carried on for many years for the
supply of remote and . sparsely-settled regions, and with the increase in postal
facilities, has extended to every part of the country, including cities. They who are in
the habit of getting their supplies in this way find it so convenient and advantageous
that they send even for the smallest wants, without waiting to lump them together ; the
small packages being sent by mail, unless express is preferred by the buyer.
WEINSTOCK & LUBIN PUBLISH A CATALOGUE, enumerating the articles
which are regularly kept . in stock, and stating prices when Qprices can be
stated. ■ In the case of articles so fluctuating in style,' material and make, or price, that
they cannot be described singly and priced, the kind is mentioned, and prices may at
any time be learned by letter, i ~h~ -. * _ '''^l.caAHa:^ **>**>**■•*. -*^~rT ,r-^-*- ' ■""--*— r

In this way their whole stock is almost placed before the'eyes of their • customers,
wherever they may be, and more'Jinformation is "given aboutjit than could be commu-
nicated if they were present in thel storejjitself withoutjthe catalogue.

National Financial Matters. .
| Washington, November — Tbe re
port of the Comptroller is not yet completed,
but will show that the aggregate amount of
legal tender and national bank notes out
standing November 1, 1880, was $688,744,
--■467; in 1879, 5681,815,£20, an. in 1878,
$666,333,137. The law provides that when
specie payments are resumed the national
banks shall not be furnished with notes of
less denomination than ?5, and in accordance
with this provision no notes of the denomir a
tion of $1 and $2 have been issued since the
Ist of January, 1879. The amount of ones
outstanding that day was $4,793,817, and of
twos $2,924,930.: Total, $7,718,747. Since
that date the -ones have been reduced
to $2,501,355, and the twos to $1,717,670,
making a total reduction in small b>nk notes
of $4,219,025. The amount of legal tender
notes of the denomination of $1 outstanding
on that date was $20,257,109, and of twos,
$20,035,525 ; total. $40,292,634, and an in
crease since that date, November 1, 1880, of
$3,491,584. The amount of these denomina
tions of both kinds outstanding November 1,
1880, is $47,283,940; total increase during
the year, $3,365,575. The decrease during
the year ! previous was $8,649,451. The
amount of circulation of the Bank of France
January 30, 1879, was $458,194,166, an in
crease between that time and January 29th of
$6,100,707. The Imperial Bank of Germany
issues no notes of a less denomination than
$7 50 and the Bank of France issues but
about $2,000,000 in notes of a less denomina
tion than $5. The Bank of England issues
no notes less than $25, and the Banks of Ire
land and Scotland none less than $5. The
amount of circulation in this country in de
nominations of $5 and under was $214,320,
--839 on November 1, 1880. Iv the foreign
countries named, a . large amount of sil
ver and gold of lower denominations
enters .into general circulation. It will
be impossible to keep in circulation
any larger amount of small gold coins
or silver dollars unless the coinage of the
latter is restricted and the small notes with
drawn. The total amount of _ United States
bonds held as security for circulating notes
on the Ist of November, 1880, was $359,748,
--959. On October 1. 1865, the total amount
of bonds held for this purpose was $276,250,
--550, of which $199,397,750 was in 6 per cents,
and $76,852,000 in 5 per cents. On October
1, 1870, the banks held $246,891,300 in 6 per
cents, and $95,942,550 in 5 per cents. Since
that time there has been to November 1,
1879, a decrease of $185,211,550 in 6 per
cent, bonds, and an increase of $51,137,200
in 5 per cents. . The banks now hold $36,988,
--950 in 4J per cents, which have been depos
ited since September 1, 1876, and $119,075,
--100 in 4 per cents, which have been deposited
since July 1, 1877. During the year $19,243,
--300 in 4 per cents have been withdrawn,
chiefly fer the purpose of realizing the large
premiums on these bonds, and $22,370,750 in
5 per cents deposited, which will mature in a
few months. The ! banks still hold $800,
--000 [?] 6 per ce**.t. 5.20 bonds, and 8520,900 [?]
in 5 per cent. 10 40 bonds, upon which inter
est has ceased. They also hold $146,552,850
of fives of 1881, which are redeemable on the
Ist of next May, and $2,046,000 in sixes
of 1881, payable en the Ist of January next,
and $50,432,150 in sixes of 1881, which
are redeemable the Ist of July next.
The amount of bonds held by the b inks
November 1, 1880, was as follows : State
banks and trust companies, $24,495,604 ; sav
ings banks, $189,187,816 ; private banks,
$14,366,684 ; National banks, $403,369,350.
Total, . $013,422,454. The - total estimated
amount of coin and bullion in the country
November Ist was $612,283,357, of which
$45 1,012,030 was gold and $158,271,327 silver.
Amount of gold and silver, and the percentage
of each, held by the United States Treasury
November 1, 1880, was as follows : Standard
dollars, $4,708,459 ; other silver coin and bull
ion, 830,072,857; total silver, $77,757,316;
gold coin and bullion, $218,483,209; per cent, of
silver, 35.6 per . cent.; of gold, 64 4. The
amount of bullion in the Bank of England in
October, 1880, was 814,163,700, and in the
Bank of France, October 29, 1880, $116,
--140,000. The percentage ' of gold held was
31.7, and of silver 68.3. . Statistics show a
rapid reduction during the last two years in
the amount of ' outstanding 1 circulation of
banks which have ceased to do business, and
indicate that the final loss upon notes of the
national banks will not exceed 1 or IA per
cent.. 1 . \ . .. . . ,- .•
Business of the **ountry— Clcaring-Hou-iC
New Yobk, November — The Public's
table of Clearing-house transactions for the
week shows the following gains and losses
over the corresponding week of last year :
Losses New i York, • 7 9-10 per • cent ; Bos
ton, 3.3 ; Philadelphia, 17.5 ; San Francisco,
16.5 ; Baltimore, 3. Gains — Chicago, 34.5
Cincinnati, 28.5; St. Louis, 15.0; New Or
leans, 11.7 ; Milwaukee, 28.8 ; Louisville,
37 8; Pittsburg, 35.5; Providence, 1.8
Kansas City, 42 8 ; Indianapolis, 35.3 ; Cleve
land, 3.7 ; New Haven, 59; Lowell, 12 5 ;
Syracuse, 40.7. The total transactions at all
the Clearing-houses this week is $1,137,
--000,000, against $1,202,000,000 during the
same week •of last ■ year, being a loss of
5 and 4-10 per cent. The fact that five of
the larger cities reports smaller exchanges
than they did last year at this time should be
■either .: disregarded :•* cor . mUinterpreted.
There is no danger that it may be deemed
more important than it really is, because the
portion of the exchanges in New York which
may be considered not due ' to stock opera
tions is as large as it was for the correspond
ing week of last year ; but the decline in Bos
ton, Philadelphia and Baltimore is neverthe
less too significant to be overlooked, as it is
never possible jto ascertain with exactness
the proportion .of ' exchanges . here which
is J due - to • -.''. dealing -in ; stocks and
bonds. The % returns « from other cities
of large traffic, in any case of doubt, are usu
ally a better indication of a tendency in gen
eral business. •■'. It happens, however, that the
tremendous speculation . which i collapsed at
this time last year was active . in ; the j cities
named, and hundreds of towns which deal
through them as monetary centers, and rimy
have been sufficiently important there to af
fect the exchanges ; at every other place.
With the usual exception of San Francieco,
the exchanges this year show an increase.
It is not easy to believe that a sudden con
traction or expansion in the legitimate busi
ness of the three largest cities and Baltimore
could occur without a corresponding change
in some of the minor towns, and the natural
conclusion therefore is that the great specu
lative transactions in stocks and bonds in
flated exchanges ; last year in - Boston and
Philadelphia, as well as here, while the vol
ume -of , other ••'. business „ continues much
greater now throughout the country than it
was then. ■'-. Dealings in grain were unusually
large last week at Chicago, Milwaukee and
New ; York, and probably, affected the ex
changes perceptibly. The volume of business
at all the small cities is so great, even in com
parison with :a : week lof j remarkably active
traffic last year, that | the general prosperity
in ail ports of the country, except on the Pa
cific coast, is evident. j r :., ,-\r, . ,•.'.-

New Yobk, November 24th.— The Stock
Exchange was the scene of great excitement
to-day, and . transactions were on . a large
scale, r Prices were whirled up with astound
ing rapidity. The activity of money did not
deter the bulls in their persistent effort to
advance - the market, but seemed rather to
stimulate them to fresh exertion. A few con
servative men consider that the present specu
lation has passed the bounds of prudence.
Tbe bulk of capital is still enlisted on the bull
side, and the general feeling to-night was one
of confidence in still higher prices. Such
stocks as Northwest, St. Paul, Lake
Shore and Pacific rose to the highest quota
tions for many years, and : in some cases
to the highest ever . known. The closing
prices were generally the best of the day.
The Improvement on the day's transactions
ranged -. from J to 8_ per cent., Northwest,

The "Sew Orleans fart tic Hallway.
New Orleans, November 24th.— At a
meeting of the Board of Directors of the New
Orleans Pacific Railway to-day a resolution
was unanimously adopted to submit to the
stockholders the question of the consolidation
of the New Orleans Pacifij and Pacific
Railroads.: After the passage of the resolu
tion Governor Brown, speaking for Colonel
Thomas A. Scott, said : Ho understands
by your vote that it is the unanimous wish of
this direction that the consolidation should
take place and that there should be a contin
uous line of railway, under one management,
from the city of New Orleans, by way of
Shreveport, i ort Worth and El Paso, and as
much further as we may extend our line, even
to the Pacific ocean. Believing as he does
that you will co-operate to this end, he is
more encouraged than ever to push forward
this work to completion from your city to
the Pacific coast."
Opposition to Secretary Sherman.
Chicago, November 24th. — The Tribune
makes another disreputable attack on Secre
tary Sherman this morning, because, as it
alleges, he repudiated the hotel bill of some
Southern delegates to the nominating Con
vention at the Grand Pacific, and left Foster
to pay it. Facta have already been adduced
to show that there never was such a hotel bill
against Sherman, and that there is no truth
in the story. In any event the Tribune's at
tack is considered in exceedingly bad taste.
The Treasury Secretaryship.
Chicago, November 24th. — The Times has
a special declaring that it is settled that Gar
field will, during his vi-it to Washington,
offer the Treasury portfolio to Sherman, and
heartily indorses editorially that determina
tion. It accuses Foster of bad faith, and lays
at his door the defeat of Sherman at Chicago ;
but asserts that Garfield stood true to the
Secretary. It claims that Sherman has a
right to the Senator-ship from Ohio, if he de
sires it, but thinks it wiser for him to keep
his present position. !
Will Fight II Out on that Line.
Chicago, November 2Hh. — The Times'
Washington special says: Secretary Sherman
said to a caller this afternoon that he intend
ed to remain in the Senatorial contest.
-,'..:''- Gossip Irom Washington.
Chicago, November . 24th. — The later-
Ocean's Washington special says: All at
tempts to draw Garfield out on Cabinet ques
tions have failed, and all reports regarding
the Cabinet may be set down once for all as
pure speculation. Garfield talked with Sher
man to-day, but not privately, and nothing
was said about the i Cabinet. Garfield also
keeps entirely alooi from the Senatorial mud
dle in - Ohio. It is believed that Sherman
wonld prefer the Senate to the Cabinet. •
Mosby, Consul | at I Hongkong, j has applied
for leave to come home, which request tbe
State Department \ has refused. Secretary
Evarts believes that Consuls and Ministers
should remain at their posts and attend to
their business.'- He sat down heavily on a
similar request from Minister Noyes last
summer. However Mosby writes ; that .he
intends to come any way. *"■•s*;
George C. Gorham had quite an interview
with Garfield today, but says there was
nothing in it. He doubts whether Garfield
has a single man fixed up for Cabinet officer,'
but no Democrats will be appointed, even to
one-horse clerkships. - The new administra
tion will; be of a "stalwart" , flavor. The
Grant people will not attempt to run it, or
anything of that sort, but- they will have a
fair recognition. ■.■.*■- . . .■".•;

The Morey Letter Forgery.
'.' New Yobk, November 24th.— Grand
Jury have indicted James O'Brien, ' alias
Lindsay, for perjury in the Philp case.
Washington, November 24th.— Alex. H.
Stephens pronounces the .'■ Morey letter a
clumsy forgery, but does not think the Dem
ocratic party will disband. . y^y
New Yobk, November • 24th.— James •
O'Brien, alias Robert Lindsay, who was in
dicted to-day by the Grand Jury for perjury
in connection with the Morey Chinese letter,
was arraigned before Judge Cowing in the
General Sessions.' He pleaded guilty, and
said he was born in Georgetown, D. C; was
21 years old, with no occupation. He was
remanded until Friday for sentence.
New Yobk, November 24 th. — The indict
ment against O'Brien is voluminous. It re
cites the proceedings before Judge Davis,
and says : O'Brien swore, among other
things, that ; he saw Henry L. Morey ' in
Lynn, Mass.; that he had an interview with
him ; that he last saw him between Febru
ary ith and 10, 1880, on the cars been Boston
and Lynn. He said the "Morey Letter"
was in H. L. Morey's possession then. It is
ascertained that ' the allegations were false,
and it is charged that he committed willful
and corrupt perjury.
Later in the day O'Brien was taken from
the Tombs, and was arraigned on the indict
ment before Judge Cowing. He was unac
companied by counsel. Clerk Hall read
the indictment to O'Brien, and in response
the prisoner pleaded guilty. Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Phelps said to the Court that
Mr. Bell, who had charge of the case, was en
gaged in a trial in the Court of Oyer and
Terminer, and asked that the prisoner be re
manded until Friday, in order that Bell might
be present. The prisoner was accordingly
remanded to the Tombs. Before his removal,
O'Brien stated that he was born in George
town, D. C, and that he was 21 years of age.
The discovery that the envelope contain
ing the forged letter had originally been ad
dressed to some one else than "H. L.
Morey." and that an enlarged photographic
copy of the envelope revealed that the orig
inal name was Edward or Edwin Fox or Cox,
in care of some company in this city, is
deemed of great importance. It is remarked,
too, as very singular, that a person named
Edward Fox is employed on the Truth.
There is an impatience manifested in some
quarters at the apparent slowness of the
prosecution, but the latter promises ' addi- '
tional developments in a few days.

New Yobk, _ November 25th — a. m.— A
snow storm set in at 10 o'clock last night and
still continues.
Scarcity of Coal . and Transportation. ;
Chicago, November 24th. — Interviews by.
the Tribune with coal dealers show that thei -
is a somewhat alarming scarcity of coal in '
the city. The difficulty lies in the fact that
the early closing of navigation on the lake
has stopped many vessels bound to this port
coal-laden, and that the railroads are utterly
unable to furnish cars to transport fuel. .
When the coal men ask for 100 cars they re- '
ceive sometimes one or two, sometimes none.
The heaviest dealers say that unprecedented
orders are coming in from the city and coun
try, and they could clean out their stocks in .
thirty days if they filled all their orders.
The price of soft coal rose half a dollar a ton
today, and bard coal will follow unless arri
vals by land or water come soon. The freight
blockade, which extends almost the entire
cistauce from here to the seaboard on all
lines, is unprecedented, and does not give
much hope of speedy relief from the present
The Eallroad War. -.
Chicago. November 24th.— Solon Humph
reys, President of the Wabash road, »■»» here T.
to-day. He says the Humeston and Shenan
doah line in lowa will be pushed to a speedy
completion, thus giving the Wabash a direct
line from Chicago to Omaha. There is no :
way, he says, of stopping the railroad war
other than conceding the Wabash's claim of
one-third the St. Louis business. Passenger
rates may be raised to fair prices, say $5 to
St. Louis, when the Wabash get* further into
the city, but until Twelfth street is reached
it will sell tickets $1 less than the other roads.
Heavy Purchase of Tickets.
Chicago, November 24th. — A Timet' To

Railroad Company has completed and

milts east of Tucson and 1,200 miles cast of
San Francisco. The New Mexico branch, which
is being constructed south in New Mexico to
intersect the Southern Pacific, has now only
about twenty miles to construct in order to
effect a junction with the Texas Pacific,
which will meet the Southern Pacific at El
Paso. It is completed fourteen miles west of
Fort Worth. It is expected that the entire
line will be open to San Francisco early next ,
year. .--,''
