Lincoln J. Catter's "Fast Mail"

was in fairly good hands.

TO THE PEOPLE.
A Caid of EzpUnatloa ("rem MatrntaMer A
We wish to say a few words to the
good people of Bock Island and vicin
ity in defense or ourselves, and in
view of the tirade of abnse to which
we have been subjected during the
last few days by a certain clothing
nrm of this city.
As most of the people of our city
are well aware, the scle cause of this
jealous, venomous attack on ns is
that we were fortunate enough to se
cure the Bamberger clothing stock at
sheriff's sale a few days ago at a
price which has enabled ns to place
the goo Is on sale at figures which
the aforesaid firm cannot and dare
These jealous neigV-bors cf ours
were after this stock themselves, but
after bidding once or twice lost thier
nerve, so to speak, and retired in con-
iusion, letting the prize slip away
from them. We were on the ground,
had examined the stock, saw that it
was good, well selected, assorted
and taken care of, and determined to
purchase it, and give the people of
this vicinity an opportunity to pur-
ensse wnat tbey wanted at prices
which could not fail to appeal to
them despite the hard times.
It seems to us that the best evi
dence that the people of this vicinity
appreciate our enterprise in securing
icia siock oi gooas, is in the in
meute ciowds that have jammed the
store, and even the sidewalk in front,
ever since the stck was placed on
s&ie. ltiey nave taxed the capacity
or the store at all times, and at the
ridiculously low prices at which the
goods have been offered, they have
bought liberally for future as well as
present use. and we want to say
right heie, that we have yet to hear
from any of the thousands who have
aade purchases, one single solitary
wora, utterance or complaint, re
garding shoddy, moth eaten goods.
or gooas in any way undesirable, or
not as represented, but on the con
trary, one and all are so far as heard
from, more than satisfied that they
nave got tneir money's worth, and in
many instances many times their
We desire to say further that we
have been in business in th'u citv
for the last 13 years, during which
time we nave estibiisned and main
tained a trade which is the envy of
all our neigbbors and competitors.
We have succeeded in doing this by
oeing strictly honest in ail our deal
ings and in all things, and by mak
ing no misrepresentations with ret
erence to anything to anyone at any
time. We are confident onr host of
long-time customers will bear ns out
in these statements, or we should
not venture to make them.
We wonder if our jcalons competi
tors can snow as good a record, vt e
will let the public jadge for them
selves. They who villify cannot eea-
erailv be relied on.
With reference to the screed they
cave been publishing in our daily
papers in which they cbargo that the
"combination" have been moving
over old shoddy goods and mixing
tne same in with the Bamberger
stock, we simdy reply that the
statement is a f alsehood from bPin-
ing to snd. There is not a word of
truth in it and we defy our jealous
competitors above reterrea to, or
sny one else, to prove that statement
or anv part of it to be true. In the
first pi see there is no combination
and never was. Our firm stands on
its merits and does its own business
in tne second place there are no
shop-worn or shoddy goods in our
store to move over, even though we
were so disposed. Oar business does
Dot admit of carrying a shoddy stock
and never did.
In conclusion we desire to say to the
gocd people of the city of Rock Island
that we very much dislike a newspaper
controversy, and desire no more of
it. but when wrongfully and un
justly Bsaailed, as in the present in
stance, we cannot aSord to remain
silent in justice to ourselves, in jus
tice to onr customers and injustice
to the public generally, who have
accorded ns such kind treatment at
all times. Respectfully,
