THEY SUIT GROYER.
"Sonic men are born great,
Some achieve greatness, and
Some have greatness thrust
Upon them," SIIAKSPE ARE,
But it's different with their clothes.
They are mostly born without clothes.
Nearly all have clothes thrust upon
them when they are small, afterward
they have to achieve their clothes.
Some achieve good clothing and some
don't; it's owing to where they buy it.
Those who buy the London Clothing
Company's Clothing get the best. It is
easier, too, to achieve the London Com
pany's clothing; it costs less. People
are getting weary of paying for the
name of having their clothes tailor
made when they can get them so much
better of us for a great deal less money.
The London Clothing Company has
achieved its reputation through intrin
sic worth, and merits the esteem of the
People by its better values. We think
we have achieved the heighth of excel
lence in our Fall Goods,- -pattern, style
and quality all the best. Values better

of an Anti-Tammany Democrat,
New York, Oct. a. The reception at
the Democratic club rooms, 617 Fifth ave
nue, in honor of the Hon. Roswell P.
Flower last evening marks the re-en trance
of G rover Cleveland into the political
arena. After a silence unbroken since the
opening of the present campaign in this
state he made a speech clearly denning bis
position, and his desire for the success of
toe state ticket. The first BDeakins was
very brief and the speakers were Secre
tary Curtis, of the club, and Mr. Flower.
simply consisting of an introduction and
a few remarks by Flower thanking the
club for its reception. Hon. T. J. Cum-
mlngs then spoke somewhat at length, at
tacking Fassett's labor record.
Mr. Cleveland's Appearance.
As Mr. Cummings closed Mr. Cleveland
appeared and was received with enthusi
astic cheers, He was introduced by Cur
tis and spoke as follows: "I find that you
members ot the Democratic club are the
greatest gourmands for speeches I ever
saw. benever I have visited you I have
been asked for a speech before I have got
anything else out of you. You may be
surprised at seeing me here tonight, as for
the past few days I have been more inter
ested in nominal politics. Cheers and
laughter. I can say that I have been es
pecially interested, although the subject
of that solicitude on my part will never
be of any especial benefit to the Demo
cratic party laughter, unless there cornea
a time when Probibitiou&ts (conectit.3
nimseuj I mean the woman s suffrage bill
Indorses the Ticket Heartily.
"When, however, I enter this Demo
cratic home it arouses in me au enthusi
asm for Democratic success. Applause.
We are now entering upon a most impor
tant cenflict and I assure you that I do
not want to be left out laughter! at
this time, which in my mind is one of the
most important campaigns which we have
yet entered. It is a time when all who
call themselves Democrats should do their
utmost for the success of Democratic
principles. Let it be known that no great
er necessity for united action in the
Empire State ever existed than now, and
that it is the earnest and enthusiastic
purpose of the Democratic party to eltt
their nominees. It is with the greatest
pleasure that I say to you that t he ticket
you have nominated deserves the unqual
ified, earnest and warmest support of the
party, and any Democrat who fails in
feivicg this will regret it. Cheers and
Issues a Note of Warning.
"You are accustomed to hear me issuing
tiotes of warning, but I wish to utter an
other to-night. In order to secure rotes
enough to succeed it will only be by the
most systematic work, ion will have to
work harder this fall to win than ever be
fore, and it needs the most earnest senti
ment and patriotic devotion to ensure
success. I nope that wnen the sun sets on
Nov. S you will have wen a glorious
victory, but. it will not be won without
effort. I am confident that the right spirit
will prevail, and that the Democratic
club will have good cause for congratula
tion. Jar. Cleveland was followed ty
Frederick R. Coudert, and then a colla
tion was served.
ROOSEVELT ON THE ISSUES.
The Finances the Most Important All
Over the Country.
: ST. Paul, Oct. 6. Hon. Theodore Roose
velt, of New York, civil service, commis
sioner, was in St. Paul yesterday, having
arrived from his western ranch in Mod.
tana, where be has spent the past month
in looking after his stock and in elk hunt
ing. "It Beems to me, said Mr. Roose
velt, "that the finances is the most im
portant question in this particular elec
tion in New York state. Moreover, the
Republicans everywhere seem to me, I
am happy to say, to be living up to their
record in the matter of honest money. I
hall probably not take any part in this
fall's campaign, but 1 will be on deck for
next year's campaign if things remain as
they are at present."
Buys He Will Hew to the Line.
"Is there cny truth in the rumor that
you have resigned from the civil service
commission 7 asked the reporter.
"Noue whatever," replied the commis
Sioner. "I have not only not resigned, but
have no thought of it. The virulence of
the attacks upon me by the chief leaders
of the spoils element I am inclined to ac
cept as ratlier complimentary, and as
howing roughly that the commission is
really doing some effective work. My
duties are not merely passively to obey
the law, but to see that it is actively en
forced, and that officials in the classified
service throughout the country under
stand that it is no sham, but that it has
sot to be obeyed. And just as long as I
m civil servic commissioner I am going
to do my best to see that the law is
obeyed. I do not care a rap what man or
what party Buffers."
Democratic Meeting at Cincinnati.
Cincinnati, Oct. 6. Much enthusiasm
was manifested at the Democratic mass
meeting at Music hall last night literally
the opening gun of tne Democracy In the
state campaign now on. Half of the hall
was occupied by the 1,100 vice presidents
and the campaign clubs, who marched
gayly in with stirring music and banners
fiying. The remainder of the auditorium
and the balconies were closely thronged
with the populace. The speakers were
Crain and Mills, of Texas, and both de
voted ' their attention to the MiKinley
tariff bill, which they roundly denounced.
In introducing Mills the chairman called
him the probable, speaker of the next

will so through the campaign with a
headless ticket. Judge Broady having de
clined the nomination for supreme Judge,
the state Democratic central committee
at a meeting here last night decided to
leave the ticket as it is. This action prac
tically amounts to an indorsement of
Edgerton, the independent candidate.

TROUBLE FOR BRITISH PUBLICANS.
Magistrates Refusing- to Renew Licenses
to Liquor Dealers.
London, Oct 6. The brewers and liq
uor dealers throughout the country are
much disturbed over the severe and crit
ical course pursued by many of the mag
istrates at the licensing sessions. Here
tofore when a license was not indorsed
with evidence that the holder had been
convicted of some violation of the law
it as renewed as a matter of course.
This has all been changed by a recent de
cision of the courts, affirmed on appeal by
the house of lords, that the justices have
entire discretion as to the renewal of a
license, whether the conduct of the license
holder has been satisfactory or not, and
that, 'When the licensing magistrates
deem it to the public interest to do so.
they can refuse any longer to license a
place, no matter if it has been licensed
for hundreds of years.
Some Recent Cases In Point.
The result is that the justices are refus
ing licenses to some vety old taverns, on
the ground that there is no real need for
them, and are also refusing in othei cases
where, in former times, the license would
have been granted almost as a matter of
right. The Manchester magistrates, by a
vote ot 40 to 18, have decided not to grant
a liquor license to a music hall recently
erected at a cost of S0,00O, and at West
Brunswick a license to sell beer, porter,
and cider was refused to the mayor of the
borough. Meantime drinking in social
clubs is on the increase, and these are con
sidered beyond the reach of the police or
the magistrates. Parliament will proba
bly be asked to deal with the subject at
the coming session.

ing removed yesterday afternoon, the
body of V. B. Myles was found lying be
hind the door of the room he had occu

other parts of the body were not disfig

behind the door. The position of the
body was such that a hurried search of
the premises by the firemen revealed no
