WE WANT ROOM for the enormous Spring purchases we've made while East which are now beginning to crowd us. We've smashed the prices on every article and garment in our
mammoth establishment to accomplish the desired end. Values cut to pieces everywhere throughout the house. The rush of business in our house since we announced the Special
February Clearing Sale beginning last Saturday has been something wonderful, and we mean to sweep out the goods at such ridiculously low prices that not a single
article or garment shall be carried over for next season. If you read the items in this advertisement and examine the qualities of the goods in our store you'll stand
readily convinced that The Model always does as it advertises, as did the thousands of new customers that thronged our aisles during 'the past week.

n. Week Aso.
Carson, New, Feb. 11. Dan Stuart has at
last arrived and has announced that the
big fight between Corbett and Fltzslmmons
will occur in Carson March 17.
The pugllstic impressario gives as a rea
son for the selection of Carson in prefer
ence to Reno that tho Carson people had
worked hard for tho passage of the bill
whllo the Reno citizens wer opposed to it.
Stuart thinks tho facilities for the ac
commodation and transportation of a big
crowd at Carson aro fully sufficient and
says that ho has made very satisfactory
arrangements with the people.
If a meeting can be arranged Dan Stuart
will offer a big purse for a big shoot tour

soon as tho train stopped tho governot
clambered aboard and was introduced to
Corbett by A. Livingston.
"I am pleased to meet you, Mr. Corbett,"
said his excellency, making a critical sur
vey of Corbett's towering figure and broad
"And I am pleased to meet you." replied
Corbett. "You proved by signing that glove
contest measure and giving the people what
they wanted that there was no hypocrisy
about you. It needed some governor with
tho courage of his convictions to break tho
ico In matters of this kind. It is to bo
hoped your example will be followed, and
that thero will be less hypocrisy about
things of this kind In the future."

into the city to throw oft as much coal as
possible beforo tho train men run them oft
tho cars. Men with wagons were always
at the railroad track to gather up the coal
and cart it away as fast as possible.
Captain Junkins. with Officer McMillan,
went to the Air Line junction yesterday
and saw two men board an Incoming coal
tram. The officers followed the train and
when the train crew scared the thieves oft
the cars they were nabbed by the officers.

and T. D. Danridgo and said they had a
partner named Dan Ellington, who was
operating a small coal office on East In
dependence avenue. The officers arrested
Ellington. All were locked up nnd will be
analgned to-day before Justice Joyce. Dan
ridge and Ellington are negroes and Kln
oald is. a white man. The little coal of
