CASE DEPENDS <X\ LETTERS.
All Correspondence Between Two Firms

In the Federal Court yesterday the
c.iso of Miller. Case ,t Clausen vs.
Evans ."t- Grniidy, the latter at one lime
a fin--, in this city, came up on a mo?
lten of the defense to have the cause
stricken from the docket under the fives
years limit, no action, it was alleged,
hn< rig been taken by the plaintiffs in
eouri for that length of time and longer. !
Tho suit was for less than $3,00(1 and
t u? defense put in a counter claim In i
excess, .?otnewh.it, of Hint "I" the plain?
tiff's. It was origli ally brought In isso. !
rlncc which lime both Mr. Evans and
Mr. Grantly have died. The defense
held that, the plaintiffs have I t the,
matter sleep nil these years, waiting'
apparently for the defendants to be out
of the way and conditions so changed
us to Improve the plaintiffs' chances of
success of winning the stilt.
Tho plaintiffs denied this and hold
tin t if they had been guilty of Inches
the defense had also been SO guilty In I
Hut pushing their larger claim. The
plaintiffs also held th.-u they could not
I have come Into court owing to the fncl
that their leading witness had been
-truck blind and ins condition of health
j was such that he could not have tes?
tified; that the firm of Miller, Cose &
Clausen had been dissolved, and thai
practically, all things Considered, the
plaintiffs are at equally as great dis?
advantage as the defense with the de?
fendants both dead; Ural the ease win,
as to both sides, have to depend niton
the correspondence In the transaction
at Issue, ond that if it Is .stricken from
the docket the plaintiffs have the legal
right to renew it in a year, making
It.s removal practically of no effect.

buyers are familiar with the general
features of the extensive stock carried
In their very large establishment, but
?those who have tf 1 visited their stores
this season would hardly believe that
?one Store could contain su h an Im?

for the boll,lay season. As you enter
their establishment one sees to the
right and Icfit rows of counters and
shelves of handsome and attractive
pieces of fancy china and glass In fig?
ures, vases, trays and desk ornaments
and everything of the .thousands Of
shapes gathered in the Eurnpi in mar?
kets, and ranging In price from bisque
figures at 5 cents to bronze ornamenta
at $1 oncli, Thero are practically two
stores of space devoted to tlicso goods

si-'.s and tea sets, and sets for special
courses such as fish. game. chop.,
roast and dessert sets. The line ()f
these goods are in the best English,

room suits for the chamber. And la

department. The stock <ts a winde con?
tains everything required for a well

their business methods is that every?
thing Is marked in plain figures, and
