which a solemn protest Is entered against

Jefferson Cltv, Mo, Mirch 13. (Rpechl)
Tho unevpected has happened and now
It sterns that there Is a chance for the
passige nt a purer election law. At 3'30
this afternoon, Senator Dunn, of the com
mittee on elections, nsked unanimous con
sent to make a report. lie then sent to the
clerk's dok a voluminous report, which
proved to bo thnt long anticipated substi
tute elections bill. Tor the Information of
the senate, houso and pres, GOO copies were
ordered printed, and to-morrow morning
the printed bill will probably be placed on
the desks. The bill Is a combination of the
I.aughlln, Tllley nnd O'.Me.ir.i bills. It
continues tho olllce ot recorder ot voters
nnd restricts his authority by providing
that tho circuit lourts, en banc, shall piss
upon his appointments of Judges and cl.rks
And the Judges and clerks are to be ap
pointed upon the recommendation ot tUf
chairman and majority of the members of
each party's cential committee. As In the
other bills, leglstratlon districts are to con
tain only 200 voters. Ileglstered lists nre
to be published nnd posted to present re
peating, and there aio three days for
registration Instead of two, and the polls
are open the same number of hours ns un
der the present law.
The public and the press have done
their work well The senate now seems
amenable to reason. Democratic senators
have not yet agreed and President O'Meara
Is; in high dudgeon, but Dunn et til have
seen the handwriting on tho wall, and are
now fleeing from the wrath to come. Xo
caucus was held upon the bill. Senator
Dunn said to-night that the bill would
pns or fall on Its merits. He conceded
that his patty had made an extremely seri
ous blunder In not passing a good bill
eaille-r 111 tho session nnd, In his judg
ment, It was Impossible that the Demo
cratic pirty should not suffer for Its
default. In this connection It may be well
to state that once again Governor Stone
has done a good turn to the public. He
called down Lieutenant Governor O'Meara
and read the riot act to him and gave him
to understand that the people demand a
purer elections law and that It would be
etiemel injudicious either from a per
sonal, public or party standpoint to throw
any obstacles In the way. It Is .said that
the- goveinoi Intimated very strongly that
he pioposed to keep up the light for pnier
elections to the end and declared that
p.utj expediency and temporary paity ad
vantage should not swerve him. It is
known iiNo that O'Meara Is much aggriev
ed that the ten.ite Is slipping bejond his
control. He has been somewhat surprised

If It ielnde I tile- re-i older of voters, It was
apparent th.it tho time had conio when
other honest men must begin to look for
somo creditable eoniptonilse. To this
O'Meara replied that he had not found the
present 1 iw oveily bad; that It lit least
gave the Democrats possession of tho elec
tion maohlneiy of Kansas City and St.
Louis and, as for himself, ho did not pro
pose to give ltepublleiiiis a knife with which
to stab him and In a very vigorous man
ner he declared that ho would lemember
that (loodykooutK mid Harrison had betray

bo good enough for Hepubllonnb, but It he
could help It nothing of the kind should

entirely without foundation.

that when Uoveiuor Lctvelllug appointed

The reduction of the tariff on
imports and the Free Wool act,
coupled with low wages abroad,
have made it possible for us to
place upon our counters the
products of the world's looms
at prices the loivcst known to
us in our thirty-txvo years' ex
perience. At an early date we saw that
very low prices for nearly, if
not quite, all merchandise was
inevitable, and, at once began
to get our house in order to
meet the new conditions. Wc
learned as quickly as possible
the reduction per yard that
would assuredly take place and
marked the prices down, which
enabled us to turn the merchan

to take it and wear it out ti a
We didn't try to fool our
selves into the belief that some
thing would turn up to help us
out, but at once lowered the
prices to meet the conditions
that ivoutd be, and sold the

thought I oxo prices inevitable.

drawn upon' ourselves welV

some of our neighbors in trade
for putting prices down.'' Now,
if we hadn't done this, if we'd
gone along attempting to fool
you as others evidently thought
they were we'd doubtless be in

However as it is due to
the fact that at the proper time

duced the stock to the lowest

storerooms with the newest

we did. We have bought and
