Our business for March, 1902, was Forty-five per Cent
more than for the same month in 1901. This is by far the
largest sales we haye ever had in any previous March. Last
year we thought business pretty good in March, too.
Now there must be some good reason for this increase.
People don't come here to trade because they like us.
They wouldn't come here and pay us Cash in advance if
they could get the same Goods at the same prices on Credit.
They have found out that the Credit Clothiers' prices for
good Goods are much more than our Cash Prices.
Some of you still think that you are receiving a great
favor from the Credit Clothiers when you buy on credit, and
that you are nuder moral obligations not to go elsewhere
when you have the Casi}. You never stop to consider the
enormous rate of interest you pay for the accommodation.

FROM THE NATION'S CAPITAL.
From Our Own Correspondent
WASHINGTON, D. C., April 28, 1009.
Democratic satisfaction is the most
conspicuous feature in Congressional
circles at this time, and there is ample
reason for it. The victory that the
Democrats of the House won when
they got the amendment repealing the
differential duty on refined anger,
which official a of the Sugar Trust admit
would cut their profits $8,000,000 a year,
put on the Cuban reciprocity bill be
i fore it was passed, has been made
effectual by a conference of Republican
Senators, which has decided that the
Senate shall pass as n party measure a
substitute for the House bill and that
it shall not contain the repeal of the
differential duty. That is j nat what
Democrats hoped for, although they
doubted whether the Republican lead
ers would be short-sighted enough to
give it to them. By killing the differ
ential repeal the Republican Senate
will show that it cares more for the
interest of the Sngar Trust than for
che interest of the sugar consumers,
and the showing will bo so plain that
it will be useless for Republican editors
and stump-speakers to try to deny it.
That showing should of itself be suffi
cient to elect a Democratic majority of
the next House. Is it any ' onder that
Democrats in Congress sm tie and are
well satisfied with the situation?
The latest move of tho tariff reform
Republicans in the House is nn agita
tion for the appointment ot' n tarin
commission to sit during tha coming
summer and report to Congress next
December. The chief agitator in this
matter is Representative Roberts, oi
Mass., who made an unsuccessful at
tempt to get an amendment placing
hides on the free list attached to thc
Cuban reciprocity bill before it passed
the House. The principal argument ic
favor of a tariff commission is that il
would keep the Republican tariff re
formers in line during the coming Con
gressional campaign, because it woulc
be a sort of proifiise that the Republi
cans intended to revise the tariff
Democrats are not uneasy over such t
method of evading the very live ques
tion of tariff revision. They know
that the voters of tho country are in
telligent enough to know that if th?
Republicans really wish to revise tin
tariff there is plenty of time to do i
at this session and give tho people i
. chance to pass on the work at th?
Congressional elections, and that tin
appointment 0? a tariff' commissioi
would only bo an attempt to dodge th?
issue until after the Congressional elec
Republican Senators, in addition t<
telling Mr. Roosevelt that it would b<
a costly mistake to forcibly retire Gen
Miles, are giving other and more prac
tical evidence of their sympathy witl
Gen. Miles. For instance, Sennto
Hawley, chairman of the Senate com
mi tte? on Military Affairs, has intro
duced a bill to "increase the efficiency
of the army," the most important clausi
pf which makeB the lieuteLfint-genera
the actual commander of the army
instead of the figurehead he nowie
and which is clearly intended to be ii
the interest et Gen. Miles, by givini
the position he holds a better lega
statue than it now has.
Senator Patterson in a warm speed
against what ia known as the Unioi
Depot bill, which, he said, in additioi
to giving ene corporation a perpetua
monopoly in railroad terminal facilitie
in Washington, gave it in cash am
real estate nearly $0,000,000, took occa
sion to put in a word for governmen
ownership of public Utilities, a system
which, he said, must ultimately prevai
or else the power of corporations wil
increase until all who dwell in citie
will become thoir serfs.
Representative Stevens, of Minn,
who was recently in Cuba, doesn't en
thuse over the prospect of Americai
trade with the island. He tells tin
following personal experience: "Ther<
is a native prejudice in Cuba agoins
American goods. At Santiago I met i
Philadelphia man traveling for a linei
house, and went with him to the va
rious merchants of Santiago. Not om
of these merchants would consider an:
trade with the United States. The;
would not examine the goods, thougl
the prices were as low and the travel
ing man claimed the quality and term
as good as wonld be furnished ty
European competitors. At Cienfuegoi
1 met a Boston traveling man wh<
represented a boot and shoe house
Ha had a similar experience. Only on?
merchant in Cienf uegos would examin?
hie goods. The articles were the bes
that could be made and the prices wer?
low, but the native taste preferred th<
cheap Spanish product."
Senator Rawlins, in his speech ogains
the Philippine bill, rubbed it.on th
Republican Senators, who have ahowi
a disposition to avoid listening t<
speeches against the bill, when h
said: "This bill is fastening on 10,
000,000 people the greatest oligarch:
that over existect. It is a crimo and i
frightful travesty, ?md while it is bein j
discussed Senators slink away to lol
in their cloak rooms."
Representative Shaffrotb, of Colo,
presented some strong arguments t<
the House Judiciary Committee ii
favor of amending the resolution pro
viding for a change in inauguratioi
day from March 4 to tho last Thursda;
in April, so as to provide for the as
Eovnbling of Congress on January
V VT JU
following the Congressional elections.
He thinks that for a Honse to continuo
to legislate after a majority of its mem
bers nave been turned down by the
people, as frequently occurs under
present laws, is misrepresentation.
Representative Richardson, the Deni
I ocratic leader of the House, thinks
Congress ought to do something to
bring the Beef Trust to book. Heh;
introduced a resolution directing the
Ways and Means Committee to inves
tigate the recent extraordinary rise in
the price of meat and provide, if pos
sible, some legislative relief.

The Delay in the Pension fund.
The State Pension Board was i

the newspapers to publish the follow
"While the law provides that th
pension money shall be disbursed o
the first Monday of April of each yea:
owing to tho delny on the part of cei
tain county pension boards and thei
failure to make reports to the Stat
board on the first Monday of March, o
required by the rules of tho Stat
board, the State board has been un
able to examine new applications an
dispose of them until to-day-thei
second meeting. The reports fror
some counties have been received sine
the 1st of April and the straggling ur
plications from counties have beo
coming in np to the present; som(
in fact, were received by th
board today. The members eonipot
ing the State board are anxious to die
burse this fund at the earliest dat
possible, and any delay in disbnrsin

to them. It is a fact that if the board
had held their meeting the 0th day c
