A DECIDED. FACT BEYOND ANY DOUBT !
Are just beginning to realize how dearly they have been paying for their few clothing they have bought during these hard, Democratic times; we
have gained a strong hold on those who were kind enough to pay us a visit and secure some of our Bargains.
Something we ought to have had here long ago, is the expression of each and every individual that paid us a visit on our opening day.
NO NEED OF PAYING WAR PRICES FOR CLOTHING OR FURNISHING GOODS. HARK, YE! ALL TWO HUNDRED PER CENTERS I
and be contented with a small margin, be not deceived but rather assured, that the MODEL CLOTHING HOUSE is to stay. We are not here to palm off
some shelf worn stuffs; bear in mind we are here with a complete line of fresh and seasonable clothing manufactured in '94 and at prices to corre
spond with the times. Do not let your prejudice get away with your pocket book; be not talked into the idea tha we will not remain
longer than after payment. "We expect to stay here, and shall stay here and build up the leading clothing trade of this city
and surrounding country within the next few months by only giving Good Honest Goods at less than 50 cents
on the dollar of your former prices. A visit to our store will readily convince you
THAT WE MEAN WHAT WE SAY---WE DO AS WE ADVERTISE,
And make all our assertions good. No falsehood or misrepresentation of any kind will be exemplified here; fair and square dealingffth. all

Washington, Juno 18. Inn fit of do-
rpomlcncy resulting from long ami In
curable Illness and depressed by a sud
den nnd violent n Uncle of dnngcrout
symptoms, Thomas SI. llnync, for Keren
terms representative, of tho Allegheny
district In congress, Saturday morn
ing forestalled the end by sending
a bullet through his head and killing
himself Instantly. At tlio.tlmo ho was
tilono with tho scrvnntH In his hand
eoino nnd luxrlous homo at 1029 Massa
chusetts avenue, in tho most ultra fash
lonublo part of tho city, his wife lelng
temporarily absent in l'hcladelphla.
I lo had been 111 for n long thno and
indeed it was his ill health that caused
him to resign his labors In congress
where ho had earned a reputation as a
clever, vigorous debater nnd nn 'expert
on tho complexities of tho metal sched
ulo of tariff bills. About eighteen
months ago ho was induced to tuko a
voyngo around tho world and when hu
returned last July it appeared that ho
had improved very much. Tho gain
was but temporary, however, and ho
suffered greatly from fits of depression
consequent upon tho mutations of
his disease which was consumption.
Mr. Itayno was one of the best known
republican politicians in Pennsylvania
mid was on tho ways and means com
mittee in tho last congress. He de
clined to run again for this congress on
account of ill-hculth, and had slnco
been nut of actlvo politics. Ho be
longed to tho branch of tho party of
which Senator Quay Is tho head.

William Walter Phelps died shortly bo

ill a long time, and fpilto recently went
MHith in the hope, his condition would
be Improved. Ho derived but little ben
cflt from his southern trip, nnd but a
short tlmo ago was so prostrated that
Ids physician ordered absolute quiet.
Gradually ho grew weaker, ami for tho
past few days hlsdcath has been looked

surrounded ly his wlfo nnd daughter
and his two sons, John J. nnd Shclllold.
Tho exact nature of Mr. Phelps" nil
ment wns nover definitely stated, but
his illnct was primarily from typhoid
fever, which was follpwed by menin

not naturally of n robust constitution
nnd ho inherited pulmonary troubles.

PiTTsiiunoii, Pa., Juno 19, Tho set
tlement of tho great coal strlko In this
district and tho return to work to-day
of 15,000 of tho 20,000 miners In western
Pennsylvania, has given nn Impetus to
all kinds of business nnd tho situation
is more hopeful than nt any time for
.Among tho largo plants In this city
which resumed work after long Idle
ness were the Carbon Iron it Steel
Co.'s works; Oliver's Twenty-sixth
street works; Hug & Co,'s works; Shocn-
burger .t Howe, Drown & Co. Tho Int
tcr has been shut down for two years
and started up In full, giving employ
ment to S00 men. The Illaek Diamond
steel works will ulso licglu operations
this week, and tho Edgar Thompson
steel works w'11 start as soon ns n suffi
cient supply of coal shall bo received.
The tubo works will start up ns soon
as many of tho strikers havo expressed
n willingness to return whenever the
firm should bo ready. It Is safo to say
that tho end of tho strlko affects C0.000
WHAT TUB HTIIIKR COST.
PlTTSiiuimii, Pn., Juno 19. A well In
formed nuthorlty in tho coal business
estimates that the coal strike In this
district has cost tho miners In wagea
81,b00,000, taking it for granted that
tho normal output of tho region had
been retained. In proportion to tho
general output this district mined
about one-sixth of tho coal dug in
the area affected by tho btrlko. With
n reasonable proportion between tho
prices paid in this nnd other districts,
tho loss in wages alone, says tho samo
authority, would bo over 810,003,000.
Estimating the ga'ln of tho miners by
tho settlement of tho strlko to lie 10
cents u ton over former prices, it will
tnko them one and one-half years to
malm up by increase of earnings fur
the tlmo they havo lost.

ing rapidly. It is believed nt head
quarters that nt least two-thirds of tho
miuers of Ohio resumed work this
morning, although no Information had
been received on which to base nn cstl
inato of tho exact number. President
Mcllrido is of tho opinion that nil ex
cept thoso In tho Mnsslllon field will

tho present week. ' f
Itcporta from points along tho Cleve
land, Loralnu .t Wheeling road this
morning show that work was resumed
at only two mines on tho entire road;
these woro nt Hock Hill.
In tho Masslllon district not a man
went to work, tho miners having de
cided In mass meeting not to abide by
the Columbus agreement. They will
hold out for in cents differential over
the rnto paid in the .Hooking district
for which they struck last February.
