We believe that it will pay everybody to do
a clean and legitimate business.
It has paid us.
You have never heard of a big and prosper

Such a business is bound to fall sooner or
It can't be lasting.
It may flourish for the time being but it's
sure to be found out after a while.
Honest methods pay in the long run.
Giving new garments for old ones that don't
wear as recommended may seem like big losses
to some short-sighted merchants but it's just
such treatment as this that has helped to build
up this big business.
We'll never have a dissatisfied customer if
you do your part.
Your part is to complain and give us a
chance to make it right.
To tell of our -whole overcoat
6Uck would blinply be a long tale
of a succession of saving. We
made every one we hhow and
though you are asked to pay a
great deal more elsewhere you
can't flud finer garments. $7-50

CLEMMER BREAKS SILENCE
Statement of a Suspect In the
Kaiser Murder Case-
Declnro That the Statement Made
by Em nm DeKalb That lie Fired
the Shot l. Ful.-.e.
Norristown, Pa., Dec. 4. James A. tlem
mer, who, In connection with Charles O
Kaiser, jr., Is charged with the murder of
Mrs. Emma Kal?er, lias broken his periil
ent silence regarding the statements of
the crime made by Miss Enun.t J.eK.iib.
While Clemmer hns steadfastly and with an
air of traado successfully parried every
question iu connection with his part in
the murder, and has doggedly declined.
"I do not believe thnt she has made a
statement" to almost every one who has
asked his opinion of it, yet the f.ict -e-nmins
thai he knows jw-sltively that Miss
DeKalb has made such a statement, aiid.
further, that It is perplexing him. He has
not given himself a satisfactory explana
tion of Miss 1-eKnlb's action, though l.e
realizes that she has placed hernelf right
in the matter.
Just ax Clemmer was leaving the Newark,
N. J., Jail to he brought to Norrisuiwn,
the question was asked: ''What do vou
think of Hiss DcKalb's statement:"
Tniph!" he ejaculated, "I don't lelleve
that she ever mud one'."
'"Yes, she did, Clemmer," said t-ne of
the men accompanying him: "she tokl
hei story iu full and it is pretty strong."
. The gentleman who made the icmark
eyed Clemmer closely, while the pilsoiter
drooped his eyes pensively, and then,
looking up quickly, said dclibei.itely
"She can't swear that she saw me lire
the shoi that is, if she tells the truth."
Then he hesitated a moment und said,
nrgumcntniivelj, with a shrug r his
"Shu couldn't see the shot fired."
Realizing that he had said more than
he Intended to, Clemmer looked to see
the effect on his two or three auditors,
and n.adc a move as though he would
like to walk on.
It Is not belle. ed that she Interested
herself in the murder ot Mrs. Kaiser, but
rather that she was made a party to 'he
knowledge of its commission by Clemmer,
in order that he might be in a position to
rule her effectually, and at the same time
to use it as a threat to her from ever
Clemmer said while in Newark that be
fore he and Miss "DeKalb separated they
agreed not to expose each other. Inas
much as Clemmer was the one who rjred
the shot, and that he was the one t- gain
much the most by silence, it is supposed
that he forced this declaration of secrecy
from Miss DeKalb by preying on' her
knowledge ot the crime.
Miss DeKalb could easily have been
slain by Kaiser and Clemmer, had their
murder of Mrs. Kdiser resulted success
fully, and they would have doubly print
ed by silencing the third witness to the
murder and collecting the insurance on
her life. When Miss DeKalb understands
this phase of the case and the apparent
peril in which her life was placed, it is
not believed that she will shield the man
who had designs on her.
THE MARYLAND SENATORSHI?.
Gary "Would Stand Best Chance, ilnt
tor Bis. Wellington Connection.
Baltimore, Dec. 4.- The Republican mem
bers of the legislature from the Eastern
Shore have finally determined to present
a unitttl fioul in the Senatorial f igtit. At
their conference at headquarters yebtenlay
they could not get together. Congressman
Barber is In town and had a conference
with State Senators Mesdck, of Caroiiue;
Dryden, of Somerset, and Dodson, ot Tal
bot; Fish Commiijbioner Toyes, of Somer
set, and B. Gootee Steyeus, of Caroline
county, nt which It was determined ttiat
the Eastern Shoie members of the ,?eu-ral
assembly would vote solidly for Dr. Barter
for the United States Senate.
Mr. Dr. v den t-ald after the conference
that the Shoic Republicans would htaad
together, and it potMble make a resident
of that bcctlou the buccessor to Seuator
Gorman. It is understood that Mr. Dry
den will be backed by the four Enstern
Shore benators as their choice for presi
dent of the benate, and as Senator West
cott, of Kent, was not at today's meeting-
it wa left uncertain as to how ho
will vote on the two matters under con
blderatlon. The Eastern Shore Repub
licans have eleven representatives in the
geueral a-mbly, seven members of the
house and four senators.
Of cour&e, Senator Drydeu and Congress
man Barber know that there is hardly a
possibility of an Eastern Shoreman being
elected as Go: man's successor, but In i nlt
ing on a candidate and a concerted plan
of action they will now be able to dictate
terms tc either the Lowudes-Gary-Welllng-ton
combine or the opposition. Mr .Dryden
is also the candidate of the Administration
forces for president of the senate. The
JEastcn Shoremen are believed to be op
posed to the combine, in so far as the
election of Gov. Lowndes is concerned.
The will vote for Dr. Barber in the caucus
so long as Lowndes Is in the field.
If by their votes they can deadlock the
caucus, they will be able, with the ass'st
ance ot the Baltimore city members, to
control the situation. They are frieudly
to Postmaster General Gary, but they uo
not want Wellington to get the credit
ot electing him. As an Eastern Shore
leader said: "Mr. Gary should be the
logical candidate He deserves the Sen
atorship, but his connection with Welling
ton will injure his chances."
