' We have decided to to take a step in a business way that means the ANNIHILATION OF PRICES,
it means the closing out of one of the oldest branches of our large mercantile business. It means
greater energy directed toward serving the men of Honolulu for we are
Retiring from the Dry Goods Business
and to quickly get rid of the stock to make room for Men's Clothing andtre-arrange the tailoring de
partment we are going to offer all of the lines heretofore carried for the ladies of Honolulu at
prices less than half formerly charged.
Closing Out Sale Is Now On
The enlarged department will be opened on a plan never before
attempted in this city. We have the store, the locality and the
knowledge of the wants of men in the clothjng; line. The new
fixtures will be of a character which for novelty and stupendous
ness has never been seen outside of New York City.

Stock-trading quieted down somo
what this forenoon under tholnllu
enco of nothing In particular. Hut
there wns still more activity than ott

parties In future Mr. Woolloy Is vis
King his son In Omaha and today mat
ed that ho was no longer a member of
Iho Prohibition party, although ho wan
still n prohibitionist.
"I bollue tho party haB accomp
lished all tho good that It can," said
ho, "and from now on tho most effect
Ivo work cin bo carried onmtsldq of
Its lines. Tno party 'renchod Its pur
poso In bringing tho liquor question to
a national lssuo, sand Its iisefulnea
on tied' there. Having passed Its use
fulness, there Is no furthe'r necessity
for' It being kept rillvo. I shall con
tinue working for prohibition, but not
through tho party of that name"
This Is tho "unkfndest cut of nil,'
when he who has been placed In tho
highest plnnaclo by his rnrly turiiH
around and spurns Is as no longer of
