The Baring, we claim, Is $2, $3 or $4 on
good quality tituo suits, not trash, and It's
easy too seo how we can afford to do It. We
make and sell them with but one profit addt d
to first cost of production.
The vlrtuoof underselling Is In doing It;
the vice, In pretending to.
The vlrtuo of mcrtltmdizing we find to be:
in alwaya having the best that everybody's
money can buy, and (riling so as to give
every advantage within the gilt ol laro and
generous manufacturing. Tbla necessarily
undersells to the extent of the jobbers' profit,
without deteriorating quilities. The heaviest
stroke of underselling Is shown in our guar
antee': Return the goods if you're disrnttsfied
with the purchase.
Speaking of nobby plaid suits in men's
sizes, we're n new line just in from factory;
$3.60 per suit. This cirtainly must be the
extreme of cheapness, and should bo classed
as a deceiving representation of an nil-wool

FRANCE AND CHINA.
The Aggressive Foreign
After Two Year's Sway, Upon
Its Last Legs.
France Had Enough and Wants
to Play Quits.
France to Prepare the Way fer
Franco nnl Clilnn.
Paiiii, May 9. Tho nggressive foreign
policy which baa had sway In Franco lor the
past year or two appears to be upon lis last
legs, now Unit an understanding has practic
ally been reached with China, by receding
from the position so boldly assumed alter the
unfortunate Lung Son nllalr, and accepting
the Chinese version of the incident.
The French people recognize how
little glory the French name has
acquired, and how little anvanlage the
French arms have secured by the treasures
squandered, the lives wasted in the recent
military operations in Tonquin, the more
they learn of the conquered regions the
more they condemn the wholeenterptlse, and
the more skeptical they become as to any
possible advantage that France is to reap from
her remote and malarial possessions.
The people ale apprehensive that tho ni wly
nppolnled districts will be more profitable to
the homo treasury than has been expensive ol
Cochin Chlnn. Tho settlement of the diffi
culty with China has had a tendency to di
rect public attendance. In 1882 Fiance began
operations against tho lluxu government
with a view to compelling this power to
recegnize the French right to cxerclto n pro
portion over u largo district ol the north
western portion ot the Island, and to a cer
tain extent over the whole country. Owing
to the natural difficulties whlth Inset tbo in
vaders, the deadly nature of the climate and
the serious opposition offered by the
natives the Fro-ch arms have accom
plished B3 far next to nothing. The
little they hare done, howev r, has necessi
ta'cd a largo expenditure of money by the
French treasury. French tax payers havo
long baen aaksng to what purpose this waste
ful surifice ol lite and outpouring ol treas
ury are continued? The government is be
ginning to recognize that this question de
mands a speedy and satisfactory answer.
Undoub'clly, when the aggressive steps
were b guu in Jladagusc ir, the French lead
ers b I eved that they could accomplish their
purpose by a short and comparatively inex
pensiveeampuign. In this they were grossly
mistaken. However, they had become
too deeply involved, as tl ey thought,
to abandon tho project with honor,
and they plunged deeper and deeper into Hie
mire only to find, after all, that they were
unable to progress, and that the whole world
was looking ajkansc at their operations, and
rejoicing in their ill at cess. When it was
decideu to bring the fighting In Tonquin and
Formosa to an end, there was afiuiry ol talk
to the effect that the war in Mad gascar wou'd
now be vigorously prosecuted, that the troopi
returning Irom the east would be dispatched
to fight tbo Horns, and that every effort
would be made to push the war to a speedy
conclusion. Hut this talk passed away
wiiboiit resulting In decisive action
and it is now believed that more
reasonable counsels have prevailed. The
general leeling now is that France has bad
enough ol the Celestial aggressive enterprise
against the Ilovas, and that the best thing to
do is to bring it to an immediato conclusion.
There Is no question but that the masses ol
the French people are tired ot the whole
nflair, and are desirous ot seeing it ended.
The ministry, it is pretty evident, hare
come arouud to the same view of the case.
A Blmtlar policy to that followed in settling
the difficulty willi China is likely lo be
adapted, that Is, France will prepare the way
lor peace by practically recceding from the
pcsiliou which she set out to maintain, when
hostilities begun. It Is believed
the ministers aro already engaged
in proposing terms of peace which will be
acceptable to the homo government. Such a
course may strike a blow at Freeh prestige,
but there cau bo no doub' that it will be im
mensely popular with the French people.

In the Knickerbocker Ice Company's estab

rirer, caused low of $25,000, burned to
death ten or twelve horses, and led to the
severe and perhsps fatal Injury of three fire
men. The loss Is partially covered by Insur
ance, Seven firemen were working on the frame
bridge connecting the second stories of two
wings of the building, when the bridge gave
away and precipitated the men Into the area
below. Tho roof ol the building fell at the,
same time and hurried the men under a mass
of burning timbers. Several streams

burning mass, and all the firemen were finally
gotten out, but not until three of them had
received serious injuries.

London Newspaper Talk.
London, May 9 The Times doubts wheth
er the existence of any documents or dis
patches respecting the Anglo-Russian agree
ment of March ICth are sufficiently defi
nite for the purpose of arbitration.
Relerring to the report Irom Vienna, that
Herat Is not mentioned In the negutiatlona
between England and Russia, the Times says :
"If the Government thinks the fate of Herat
may be left to the caprice of the Ameer, the
treachery of the local government, on the
success of a pretender, the ministry had bel
ter tell the country their opinion,
and either give place to others
more forcing, or abstain Irom boasting of their
money, prestige and ball-hwrted measures,
which deceive nobody, and, least of all,
Rnssla. The Standard hopes that the cruel
and patronizing bluotness ol the official mes
senger's statement will sting Gladstone int'i
another speech worthy of the British Minister.
Herat is now the main question.
No Russian pledge, however binding, which
would only relieve us Irom a diplomatic
squabble, ought to prerent us Irom taking
action to forestall eventualities.

London, May 9. The arbitration scheme

from her agreement to submit the question

Yesterday's (lame at Association Park
DlsaaUr Follows Faat and Follow

D. Wast Mgaed Note, Ete.
When the Cincinnati American Associa
tion team recently made the remarkably and,
mortitrlog record of three consecutive goose
eggs, It didn't by any meant follow that they
couldn't play ball, or were a gang of "bums"
or Jonahs. On tbe contrary, It was just
such a piece of misfortune as It likely to
overtake any team In such an uncertain game
as base ball. The new Springfield team lost
three consecutive games last week, bnt those
who are condemning the dob on these
grounds and kicking at Its poor playing may
have a brilliant opportunity of eating their
own words before tbe season is oyer. A sus
pension of public opinion Is clearly demanded
until tbe team shows what stuff It Is made
after a month or two of games.
The Erics were victorious In yesterday's
game by the score of 9 to 4. Altbongh man
ifestly an inferior team, tbey oat-batted and
out-fielded the Springfirlds yesterday, being
very fortunate In bunching their hits at crit
ical points, while tbe Sprlngfieldt piled np
their errors. Arundel occnp'ed the box for
tbe borne club, and with good support, would
have been more than fairly efiectlve. As It
wai, the fielding of the club was discouraging
and he was bit rather freely. Carroll caught
a strong game till along toward the last,
when he allowed several balls to pass blm.
His batting, however, was tbe feature of tbe
game, and together with a brilliant stop by
Ardner, aroused enthusiasm tn the crowd.
The visitors began tbe fun In the first
inulng. Roussean led off with a two-bagger
to left field, which was a close shave from a
foul. He reached third on Peckinpaughs wild
throw and scored on a passed ball. Campau
reached first on infield bit but was forced out
at second on Darling's grounder. The latter
scored on a bunch of errors and some brilliant
tn tbe third Inning, the Sprlngfieldt made
two rnns. Kelly opened with a cracking two
bagger to center, was advanced to third on
Carroll's safe single and scored on Ardner's
hit to center. Carroll and Ardner both scored
on Darling's high throw over second base.
This made three runt before a man
was out, but Huey, Baker and Arundel
thought it was about time to stop and ended
the tun by going out consecutively. In the
sixth, Carroll knocked tbe ball over the right
Held fence for a home run, which ended the
run gtttlosA for the Sprlngfieldt. Taa.aoore
was then 4 fo 2 In their favor, and It .began
to-look Ilk a victory.
This pleasant illusion was knocked silly
in the next Inniog, and the public is referred
to Jack Sboupe for particulars. Darling led
erf with a hit to third which Shoupe juggled
and gare the runner a base. He reached sec
ond on Faatz's muff and scored immedi
ately afterwards on Bierbauer's safe
single. Reynolds bit a hot one to Shoup,
which that young man permitted to go
through blm like a shot, and tbe batter
reached second, while Bierbauer perched on
tnird. Both were brought in Immediately by
Reardon's base hit to right, putting the vis
itors a run In advance. At this point tbe
crowd began to notice how unpleasant the
weather was, and how unfavorable to base
ball, generally. Tbe ninth Inning was even
mo re of a picnic. Darling reached first on a
square muff by Faatz who, by tbe way, bad
a day off yesterday stole second, took
third on a passed ball, and scored
on Deckert's full bearded single
to center. The ball managed to sneak
through Kelly's legs and went on back to the
fence. It was fielded in so slowly that Deck
er! reached home. Reynolds and Reardon
hit safely and scored on Seward's sacrifice
and a patsep ball. In their half of the ulneth
the Springfields went ont iff order and the
agony was over. Steck'a umpiring was main
ly satisfactory. Tbe score:
