an index to the vast and varied stock within We buy only in carload lots and special trains are run for our exclusive benefit As they whirl and whistle through the

New Yoik, Oct. 23 A state
ment was given out today by the
Democratic National Committee,
after a consultation between Thom
as Taggart, Chairman; Win, F.
Sheehan, Chairman of the Execu
tive Committee, aud Delancey
Nicoll, Vice Chairman for the East.
'We have made no formal state
ment concerning the political sit
uation before this time, because the"
materials upon whichvjlone a cor
rect judgment court! be formed
were not at hand. Our efforts dur
ing the past three months have been
devoted to the tsk of organizing
and harmonizing the party in the
States hitherto considered doubtful
by reason of dissen-ions. That
work is now finished, and it is pos
sible, for the first time, to reach a
conclusion based upon a systematic
canvass, which can never be satis
factorily made until after organiza
tion is completed ard the ca"rapaigu
has well progressed.
In every State, and in all sec
tions, Democrats have buried their
differences and are working harmo
niously and enthusiastically for the
ticket. Our canvass shows that
scarcely anywhere is there a , trace
of dissensions which for the past
eight years has unhappily divided
the party. In the States of-New"
'ork, New Jersey, Connecticut, Iu
diana, Maryland, Deleware ani
Ve8tVirgini3, and in many of the
Western States, our organization is
more complete and effective than
ever before in the history of the
party. Candidates for Governor

these electoral votes we shall
have the majority, if not all the
electoral votes of the Rocky Mount

juncture to predict the outcome in
