When the butiness for which they wero
assembled hail been concluded, the lan
guage purporting to hae been uttd by Mr
Dodge wss quoted, aiid he was requested to
state whether or not It was a correct re
production. The attorney laid it 'Has Hot
exactly correct, ard then gave what he said
was the language.
Turning to Col Trueedell, Mr. Dodge
"I cuoted j ou as faying that the board
was handicapped by the influence the.
Baltimore contractor had in Congress."
What he was reported to have said was
that on a certain occasion he "called
uimii the Commissioners when they wero
considering tho question of garbage dis
posal and the Commissioners told him
tney wouiu Mate to accept tne plant or
the Baltimore firm, uecauie the firm had
a large influence in Congress "
Commissioner Truodeil characterized,
both statements as Incorrect the pub
lication as "unqualifiedly a misstate
ment," and the explanation as a "per
version of the facts."
Mr. Dodge repeated bis version, stating
the language to be what he understood
at the time to be said, and Col. Trues
dell reiterated bis denial.
Commlsslonr Ross, who was present
upon the occasion referred to by Mr.
Dodge, said he did not remember that any
such a remark was made, and Major
Powell, who was not present, tald it
could not he true, as It was so inconsistent
with the facts.
"What might have been said," added
Col. Trucsdcll, "was with reference to'

We are going to prove a few things here
this morning right in front of the crowd;
you know just as well as 'we do that
there isn't a Clothing House in the cit' of
"Washington that has ever heen known to
cut prices in the BEGINNING of a new
season whether it be summer or winter;
these are the times when prices are held
right up to the highest notch. After the
season advances a little somebody jumps
in with a "discount sale" and from that
minute the clothing' trade is in a state of
panic. Dealers get red in the face trying
to demonstrate how much lower prices are
during these reduction sales than they
were at the beginning of the season. We're
going tabe liouest and admit that we have
had these reduction sales and they were
GENUINE, too but from tick of the
watch our store will have just ONE price
in the beginning in the middle and at
the end of ALL SEASONS. Our new fall
stock is here it's better and bigger than
any we have ever had before and it is too
good to be TRIFLED with. When we tell
you that a suit" or overcoat is worth $10
(and we've got stacks of them at this price)
you can bet your last dollar that it is
as good as ten dollars will buy ANY
WHERE. We have established a manu
factory at 185 Market street, Newark, N.J.
every garment is union-made when it's
finished it comes straight to US we pay
tribute to no jobber no middleman. We
might write a page and fail to give a bet
ter reason why our prices are LOWEST.
You may as well get a warmer suit now
as to WAIT. Your money back on de
mand. All garments kept in repair one
year free of cost.
