Now, we have only this^much to say: We do not wish to take^the bread from the mouth of any per^^son who is ^chasing the nimble six^^pence,^ but we have no H|iologien to^make for any remarks we have made,^and hereby announce wo are willing anil^anxious to prove to anyone desirous of^proof that our Tailor-Made Clothing,^for Stylo and Fit, are ahead of any of the^productions of the merchant tailors !^who charge for good work and turn out^a class of work inferior in t t, inferior in^io style, inferior in all points that go to^make a nobby, well titling and good-^wearing suit of clothes.

Ini hi' Selection of Permanent ontrt-n^for ttit' llodv.
St.Loi'Is.;Not. a;.^The National Silver^convention nu t this morning. Three hun^^dred ami lifty delegates were present, and a^large number of sis editors. Janu s Camp^^bell called the convention to order and in^^troduced L. M. Hunisey of St. Louis as^temporary chairman, uud Albert Singer^temporary secretary. Kumsey said: ^You^are not a law-making body, it is true, but^as all laws are^thc results of the popular^will, and as yon have been almost as popu^^larly sent to represent the |^eople of this^t inted States as are the members of con^^gress sent to voice the will of the people in^Washington, it follows the congress of the^United States .may find through your de^^liberations and conclusions that yon are^the latest representatives from the people^upon the quest ion of silver coinage laws;^that they must obey the will of the people^of thejpVuitcd States, and enact the lawn^your body cannot enact, which will give to^the people of the I'nited States the privi^^lege of coining their silver as freely as they^coin their gold. In so large an assemblage^il would bo strange if there were not those^who have some \wi hobby, no doubt very^excellent and desirable in some other con^^vention, but the time for the discuission of^this monetary question in so brief, it is^hoped no extraneous subjects will be at^^tempted to be pushed uiNiii the atteution of^this convention.
Atthe conclusion of his address various^committees on credentials, pMMMl or^^ganization and resolutions were appointed,^ami the convention took a recess till:! p. in.
Theconvention reassembled promptly at^3 o'clock. Tne entire afternoon was Ml^in a discussion of how the convention^should vote, some contending that each^delegate present should lie entitled to one^vote: others that the delegation should vote^its full strength by proxy, no matter how^many delegates were in the convent mm.^The matter was finally settled by the^adoption of a resolution oft. red bv Senator^Stewart, of Nevada, that each delegation^should tie entitled to twenty votes, and all^over that number in any delegation should^be allowed one vote each.
Thecommittee on permanent organiza^^tion repotted the following pel nun^) dAV
cers:Chairman. A. J. Warner, of Ohio,^vice chairman, J. McMichucl. I Colorado,^secretary, Albert Singer, of ..',.saonri, as^^sistant secretaries, V. L. Dana. i olorado, T.^J. Palmer, Kansas, J. A. (iro r, Pennsyl^^vania.
ChairmanWarner,upon b^ in- introduced
tothe convention by Senator Stewart,^thanked that Ixsly for the um i|iected hon^^or. He said that no subject intrusted more^people than the silver question. Since Ger-^^uany. in 1H7-, followed by other l.uropcan^powers and Daftly by the I'nited States, de^^monetized silver as money, the question^had lieen a vital issue, and in the discussion^the hi imtalliat* had won u victory. The
attemptto change the i..* st and o,l from
goldand silver to gold alone was worse than^a mistake^it was I ernne. I he demoneti^^zation of silvci Sad made the gold standaid^tbfteient th in before that act; the demone^^tization of silver was, in fact, a great crime,^and its revoeat.on was now the iuqiortaut^question before the world. The people had^suffered more from bail monetary legisla^^tion than from any other cause. the tirst^duty was stability of finances. What was^asked was the restoration of the money^standard which had existed for ages^that^silver he placed on an I quality with gold al^the ratio which has long existed. It was Un^^duly of the country to restore what should^never have been disturbed, and this conven^^tion had assembled here to decide upon du^^llest methods to lie pursued in leaching the^desired i ml.
11.Ii. Chamberlain, president of the Den^vi r chamber ol commerce, on behalf of that^body, then presented a solid silver gavel to^Chairman Warner. A number of resolu^^tions, to lie leferred to the committee on^resolutions, were read, and so recorded.^The ooinuiittce is considered a very strong^one, and It is i-X|iected will embody the^wishes of the convention briefly, Hnd so^clearly that they will lie easily understood.^After the announcement that there would^be a reception at tin- Merchants'Kxchange^to night, the oonveiition adjourned.

Two miles further the engin^^eer was thrown off, and after ruimiug four^miles further steam was shut off and the^locomotive ^killed.^ Then the robbers^made an attack on the express cars.

Gainksvili.k,Tex., Nov. Uti. ^ The big^robbery in the Indian nation hist night is^the general topic here. Tho Wclls-Fargo^|h-ople say the amount lost is ('.Kill, but^there is every reason to believe it is between^$ kl.OOOsud $7^i,llU^. It is known every day^for a month past thousands of dollars have^been It u :lit into Texas to be used in n. v^ing Texas cro|is. It is stated the railroad^officials were warned that a robbery would^Is- attempted, and for that reason had a^guard and a deputy marshal on the train.^These two, however, gave up the fight after^the robbers had riddled the car wit h bullets.^It is known one of the robbers was wounded,^for a trail of IiIinhI leads from the track^some distance. Posses have so far been un^successful in their search.
