The power of "ready cash-was comprehensively demonstrated when assets valued at over two

the i dollar. This in spite of the efforts of Eastern "wrecking" and "assets realization" companiei
to get the stock and move it East. .

power, of their money when it goes to buy the Tibbs-Hutchings stock. Had ft not been for Lindeke.
■Warner & Sons this opportunity would have been transferred to merchants and consumers further
East. It would seem,' then, that Lindeke, Warner & Sons, besides deserving credit for a good stroke
of shrewd business, are also entitled to praise for a piece of work that will help the" whole Northwest:
Included in their purchase are not only, every bit of merchandise formerly owned by the unfor

bills receivable. The merchandise and fixtures are, now ,being moved to the big Lindeke, Warner 4
