We do not advocate a "penny wise, pound foolish" policy,
but this is a different proposition. Every purchase made
here means a saving, it may only be a few cents on this
article, or more on that one, but you do make a saving,
which, in time amounts to a sum, which ro ecorui-nical
housewife would overlook. The saving of a few cents
would be foolish if the quality was not of the best. Some
times the quality is lowered with the price, but not here.
You'll always find but one quality here and that is the
highest, and you'll find but one set of prices here and those
are the lowest. Just a few of them:

Searle Refuses a Compromise on
the Question of the
LOSES SUPPORT OF DEPUTY
Candidate for Congress Addresses Vot
ers of the Seventh Ward at
Charles J. Searle addressed a gath
riiu5 01 a nunureu or more voters in
the upper precinct of the Seventh
ward at a meeting at the Doering cor
ner last evening with reference to his
congressional candidacy. Among oth
er things he said that a friend of O. P
tjison. deputy postmaster, had ap
proached him with the statement that
Oljon would not support him unless
he would promise to make T. H. Tho
mas postmaster in the event of his
election. The answer was -that he
would make no promise to make any
man iostmaster and in a few days he
obiHTved Mr. Olson's friends ami some
in the Book Concern out .working
A a Radical.
Speaking further than this he said
he thought no man's candidacy or
nomination or election sfftmld depend
upon who should be made postmaster
or given any other office. Mr. Searle
spoke clearly with reference to his am
bition to go to congress, and gave
answer to the charges made against
liiui to the effect that he is a radical.
He upheld his stand in this respect and
endorsed the administrations of Gov
ernors Pingree of Michigan, LaFolIette
of Wisconsin, Cummins of Iowa and
Folk of Missouri with considerable
I'pon the conclusion of the speech a
motion was made and carried that a
committee of three be appointed to
confer with the other precincts in the
organization of a Seventh ward Searle
club. H. II. Doering was chairman of
Toitrthrr In Mollac.
It is now understood that the two op
posing elements in Moline have been
getting together on the same plaLforiu
and will henceforth work in harmony
in the Interests of Frank G. Allen for
congress. His lieutenants, as wen as
those of Mr. Searle are now at work in
all parts of the county. In the north
ern section the Searle supporters are
claiming Canoe Creek and Zuma, and
Allen men are laying claim to all of
the rest. While the Moatu- man looks
for the support of all of Hampton
which includes the hospital, the direc
tion in which it goes will probably in
dicate the preference of the s:.ate ad
ministration. There is less general
knowledge of the situation in t he
out hern iMtrtion of the county and it

bors As He Was on Way to His
Home Last Evening.
J. P. Williamson is confined to his
bed with one broken rib and two frac
tured, as a result of an assault made
unon him by a neighbor and son. The
trouble took place as Mr. Williamson
was going to home to supper last eve
ning. He resides at Tut) Twelfth street
and in the vicinity is an alley that had
been obstructed in such a manner that
he considered it a nufsance. The ob
structions were placed there by neigh
bors and there had been some contro
versy about the situation. Mr. Wil
liamson removed some of the articles
there, placing them in th" yard of the
owner. Last evening, as he was ap
proaching his nome he was called into
the presence of the neighbor and his
son and engaged in conversation for a
moment. It i said that there was no
controversy in this conversation, but
that in a few moments he was sudden

results. The other side of the matter

that no special orders or suspensions
