Exceptional Value in
There's a reason for everything. These suits
are the quality they are for $18 because we in
variably share with you the economies of this
workshop of ours. We know they'll compare with
the $22.50 Suits you can find anywhere they'll
even discount many $25 grades.
It's all a matter of methods and facilities. We
committed ourselves years ago to the policy of
price moderation and we didn't change that pol
icy one iota when we broadened our opportunities
through the means of Saks-makemanship.
There you have the reason. And we want you
to see the suits. About twenty-two different styles
of English cut, with the soft roll; belting high,
following natural body lines and the modified
English, that are semi-body fitting and the con
servative models. But conservative doesn't mean
We've used Cheviots and Worsteds of exclusive
pattern. Our skilled tailors have done the work
on them as carefully and painstakingly as though
they were $40 suits.
We want to build your expectations higher than
they have ever been before because these $18
suits warrant it.

EE GIRL WIFE 10
SEEKS HER DOWER
Sentenced fllan Denies He
Secured Her Signature
, By Fraud.
Martin- II, Bray, who Is under sen
tence to.three.,yean In the penitentiary
'on charges preferred by his girl wife,
formerly Alberta W, Sadller, today
answered her petition asking the Dis
trict Supreme Court to protect her
dower In his estate, and denied that
he has any intention of defrauding her.
Bray, who Is a contractor and builder.
Informed the court that he transferred
certain realty for the purpose of putting
It In the hands of responsible parties
'because of the fact that he faces an
"unwilling absence" from Washington.
He declared that he has every Inclina
tion for Mrs. Bray, and has provided
her with a home and has furnished her
with funds from time to time.
Mrsi-Bray alleged in her bill that her
husband had Induced her to sign cer
tain papers through fraud and mis
representation, but Bray claims that
the nature of the papers was thoroughly
explained t'o her. .
The conviction of Bray followed a
sensational trial In which Mrs. Bray,
then Miss Sadller, was the chief witness
against him. .Before he was sentenced
the couple went to Annapolis and were
married, but Justice Anderson refused
to extend any leniency.
Attorneys George C. Shlnn and Claude
W. Owen represent Bray. ...

Makos, who says he lives at 301 Indiana
avenue northwest, was arraigned In the
United States branch of the Police Court
today and sentenced to pay a fine of 320.
Witnesses testified that Makos who Is
eighteen years old, struck Nicholson
with a piece of wood, and caused the
latter to suffer from concussion of tho
brain. Makos had no witnesses to tes

Commissioner Lane Cites In
stance Where Lower Rates
In the closing hours today of the big
express case argument before the In
terstate Commerco Commission, Com
missioner Franklin K. Lane shot ques
tion after question, at Walker D, Hlnes,
.counsel for the express companies, at
tacking his argument In vital -spots and
In a number ot Instances leaving Mr.
Hlnes unable to answer at all,
Mr. Hlnes continued his argument ot
yesterday that Installation of the rates
proposed by the commission will leave
the express companies facing an annual
deficit, saying that a 25 per' cent re
duction ordered in packages between
five and eleven pounds, the bulk of the
business done by the express companies,
will mean a terrific loss ' to the com
panies, for there was not likely, he con
tended, to be new business to replace It,
Moreover, he said, the parcels post,
so far as can be told In advance, will
cut Into the small package business of
the express companies, which faced, he
asserted, a loss both In volume of
business and total revenue.
Mr. Lane cited the results of lower
Ins; Intrastate .rates In Nebraska In
"You were going to be ruined there,
too," said the commissioner, "yet in
three years the volume of business in
creased from $622,000 to 3822,000.. and total
expenses on both Interstate and Intra
state traffic, reckoned together for both
years. Increased only 34,000."
.Mr. Lane Insisted that this case
showed that a loss of business due to
lower rates could not safely be prophe
sied. Mr. Hlnes retorted that an In
crease of business could not safely be
Mr. Lane asked If It wero not true
that. In case of a 25-cent package of
express, for Instance, where tho express
company gave the railroad company 50
per cent tor hauling It, the total ex
pense of handling being 15 cents, the
express company, by reason of Its rail
road contract, would not have to charge
more to make a profit for Itself, He spoke
of the S3 per hundred pound rate on de
ciduous fruits from California, where
the express company Is under almost
no expense, but gets 31 of the 32.
Mr. Hlnes said that these "special In
stances" did not affect the general
"You cannot take the position at
one time here." said Mr. Hlnes. "that
