"Some men are born great,
Some achieve greatness, and
Some liave greatncsslthrust
Upon theiEi." SIIAKPESAUE.
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

Chicago Irishmen Wroth at Archbish
London, Oct 0. The announcement
that there was to be a post-mortem on the
body of Parnell created some misgivings
as to the cause of death. Dr. Growers, in
response to a telegram of inquiry, said
that the post-mortem had not been ordered
by any public authority, but was to be
held by the wish of the attending physi
cians, with the consent of friends of Par
nell. He stated that the death was as
plain a case as he had ever attended, A
midnight dispatch from Brighton says
that the doctors, after examining the body
of Parnell, concluded that it was not
necessary to perform an autopsy, and
therefore refrained from doing so. Dr.
Gowers and two other physicians made
the examination. The remains had under
gone a rapid change, and it was foand ad
visable to close the shell.
The Leader' Last Words.
During his delirium, shortly before he
died, Parnell talked about Ireland and
what he would do for her if he lived. Al
most his last words were: "Let my life be
converted to my colleagues and the Irish
people." Messrs. Redmond and Mahoney
are arranging for the funeral. The body
will arrive in Dublin Sunday morning
and be taken in state to the city hall, from
which the funeral will proceed to Glas
nevein cemetery, the place of interment.
Extensive preparations are being made
for the obsequies.
Poor Prospect for Irish Unity.'
To-day the prospect of Irish reunion
over the grave of Painell is less encourag
ing. The news from Parnellite associa
tions, both in Great Britain and Ireland,
confirms the anticipation that an attempt
was be made to keep up the organiza
tion with the same motives and aims as
heretofore. Much depends upon a meet
ing of the Parnelllte members of parlia
ment which takes place soon after the
burial of Parnell. If they should resolve
to give up the contest it is thought that
the various leagues would follow suit.
The chances for harmony have not been
increased by the bitter language of the
Dublin Catholic, the organ of the bishops,
and by the scarcely disguised hatred in
the anti-Parnellite Dublin press.
Tim Healy In the Way.
Undoubtedly one of the main obstacles
to a reunion is the bitterness that has
characterized the opposition to Parnell, as
voiced more especially by Timothy Healy.
In the face of death the Parnell it es feel
less than ever like forgetting the cruel at
tacks upon Parnell and the woman who
shared his later fortunes. To Healy and
one of his associates is attributed the
origin of the rumor that Parnell had
committed suicide, to refute which the
family was compelled to reveal the scene
of the deathbed with all its saddening
The Times' View of Parnell.
The Times says: "Although Parnell lost
his unique commanding position, won by
shrewd manipulation of political passion,
because of his vices, yet he retained power
of considerable importance. Parneil
owed his success to his power to note and
his keenness in trading upon the weakness
and vices of humanity. That with a char
acter essentially repellant he succeeded in
inspiring actual enthusiasm is the high
est evidence of the greatness of his intel
lectual ability. It was combined and cor
related with an entire indifference for
moral restraint of every kind. Although
once fully recognized by Mr. Gladstone,
this peculiarity was conveniently forgot
ten when it became desirable to capture
tue Parnellite vote.
An Opinion from Capt. O'Shea.
In an interview at Brighton Captain
O'Shea said that ultimately it would be
seen that the death of Parnell would not
result in a reunion of the Irish Home
Rule party. "In the last conversation but
one that I had with Parnell, be assented
with obvious pleasure to my suggestion
that among his political friends the most
false was John Dillon, the lowest Tim
Healy and T. P. O'Connor, and the most
contemptible Justin McCarthy. I have
nothing now to say about ParnelL It
was in April, 1SSG, that I found him out
for what he was. Politically he was never
a man of ideas. His was not an original
mind. Bnt he was the most skillful man
ipulator of the ideas of others that I ever
SOME MEN WHO NEED NOT APPLY.
Tim Healy Given Notice Not to Attend
A large number of McCarthyites. in
cluding McCarthy himself, are expected
to take part in the funeral of Parnell at
Dublin on Sunday. But Redmond has
openly declared that should "foul mouthed
Heal," as he calls him, and others who
have indulged in personal abuse of Par
nellj present themselves they will be
driven off, and be lucky if they escape
i Hi Taunts Stuns; ParnelL
Redmond says, as an intimate friend of
Parnell, that nothing stnng the Irish
leader to the quick so much as Healy's
abusive allusions to Mrs. O'Shea, both be
fore and after she had become Parnell'
wife. On reading or hearing of these in-
aalti, Parnell would quiver like an aspen
and compress his lips, as if to restrain the
utterance of his feelings. Bedmund says
he has no doubt that Healy's taunts had
a good deal to with bringing 'about Par
cell's death, by breaking down his nerv
ous system and worrying his mind.
CHICAGO IRISHMEN INDIGNANT.
They Denounce the Attack on the Dead
by Archbishop Walsh.
Chic A. GO. Oct. 9. Chicago Irishmen were
excited and indignant yesterday over the
bitter denunciation of ParnelT'by Arch
bishop Walsh, of Dublin, in The Irish
Catholic. In am editorial published in The
Citizen Editor John F. Finerty says:
"Even in death the fierce lash of the arch
bishop of Dublin pursues the illustrious
victim, and all Irishmen, whether clerics
or laymen, must blush when they read
the most bitter, unforgiving, uncharitable
I ulmination that ever issued from a pre
late's pen. The Citizen, out of charity ti
the archbishop of Dublin, will not repro
Doesn't Matter to Parnell.
"But what matters it to ParnelL
who now' lies dead in Brighton, on En
glish soil? His labors are all over, but
the travail of his country still proceeds in
agony and bloody sweat. Of all the conn
tries of the world, she alone, the sufferer
by a foreign yoke, has also to bear the
brand of domestic thraldom, exercised by
those who, in any any other land, would
be forced into dignified retirement."
The executive committee of the confed
erated Irish societies of Chicago, at a
meeting yesterday afternoon, decided on
holding a Parnell memorial meeting this

ALLERTON WINS THE GREAT MATCH.
The Iowa Horse Beat. Nelson and Capt
ures a 10,000 Purse. .
Grand Rapids, Mich., Oct. 8 Allerton
was the only horse in Grand Rapids last
night and his friends owned the city.
Thirty thousand people saw the Iowa
stallion defeat Nelson, the pride of New
England. It was not a model day for the
race, the air being cold and the sky heavy
with clouds. The horses were driven by
their respective owners, Allerton by C.
W. Williams, who weighed 1G5, and Nel
son by C. H. Nelson, weighing 110. Twice
they scored for the first heat and then the
word was given, Nelson holding the pole
and slightly in advance, a lead he main
tained to the end, the reason being that
Allerton broke on the home stretch.
Nelson Takes the Lead Again.
In the second heat the stallions got
away in perfect form, Nelson taking the
lead from the first turn. He was a
length ahead at the quarter, a trine more
at the half, and then his lead perceptibly
diminished. As they turned into the
home stretch Allerton's nose lapped Nel
son's wheel, and with every step he
gained on his rival. At the distance pole
they were neck and neck, and Nelson be
gan plying the whip. His hand was un
steady and the horse swerved out of the
straight course, Allerton coming under
the wire half a length ahead in 2.U,'.
Allerton a Winner by Two Lengths. '
In the third heat Allerton had the pole,
but at the turn Nelson cut in and took the
lead, and at the quarter Allerton was
three or four lengths behind. At the halt
Allerton had gained little if any on Nel
son. After leaving the half Allerton
crowded on all his speed, and was only a
length behind at the third quarter. Down
the home stretch Allerton passed Nelson
and came under the wire two lengths
ahead in Ss:15.
The Deciding Heat of the Baee.
The fourth heat was the prettiest heat
of the race. It was neck-and-neck from
start to finish, and single blanket would
almost have covered both horses the en
tire course. At the half neither teemed to
be ahead, and at the third quarter no light
was to be seen between them. After pass
ing the distance post Allerton put forth
a last supreme effort, and came under the
wire half a length ahead in 2:16J. The
race was for a purse of 110,003.

The Base Ball Suspect.
Chicago, Oct. 9. A meeting ot the ex

League base ball club was held yesterday
at which affidavits were read from a
number of players in the club declaring
that they played fair ball with the Bos
tons in the concluding series. Two of the
affiants were "Buck" Ewing and Amos
Rusie. As the thing complained of by
the Chicago people is that these men did
not play at all, their affidavits would ap
pear to cut very little figure in the matter.
