"Sonic men are born great.
Some achieve greatness, and
Some have greatncsslthrust
Upon them." SIIAKSPEARE.
But its 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

DEMOCKATS PARAGRAPH A CLAUSE,
Letter to Frye About
And the Secretary Writes to an Ohio Ed
itor Explaining How lie Standi The
Reciprocity Provision What He Wa.
Contending For Some Comment, on
the Effect, of the Amendment Mot
an Opponent or the Law a. It Standi.
New York, Oct. 17. John Hopley. ed
itor of The Journal, Bucyras, O., recently
wrote Hon. James G. Blaine that the
Democratic papers in Ohio were para
graphing him aa an opponent of the Mc
Kiuley bill, and the following reply has
been received by Mr. Hopley, dated Au
gusta, Me., Oct. 15, 1891:
Mt Dear Sir: You inform me that the
Democratic paper in your town and many
Democratic papers throughout Ohio keep
the following paragraph standing in type:
But there is not a section or line in the
entire bill McKinley tariff that will open
a market for another bushel of wheat or
another barrel of pork James G. Blaine
to Senator Frye, July 11, 1890.' This sen
tence is garbled and taken from its proper
connection. It creates a wrong impres
sion. What I did say is this: 'I do not
doubt that in many respects the tariff bill
pending in the senate is a just measure,
and that most of its provisions are in ac
cordance with the wise policy of protec-
ion; but there is not a section or a line in
the entire bill that will open a market
for another bushel of wheat or another
pound of pork.'
Simply Wanted a Reciprocity Clause.
"The letter in which this passage occurs
was written to Senator Frye on July 11,
1890, and the McKinley bill did not be
come a law until Oct. 1, nearly three
months thereafter. In my letter to Sena
tor Frye 1 objected to the bill because it
did not contain a reciprocity clause.
which wonld provide a market for wheat
and pork, for other products of the farm.
and for various fabrics. Before the bill
was finally passed the reciprocity clause
was inserted, and a large addition was
made to the free list. It will, therefore,
be seen from what I said in my letter
that the objection 1 made to the McKin
ley bill was entirely removed before the
bill became a law. Let me further say
that the reciprocity clause has given am
ple market for many barrels of flour and
many pounds of pork."
Not Opposed to the McKinley Bill.
Mr. Blaine then reviews the effects of
the reciprocity clause, citing the treaties
wit h. Brazil, Spain and San Domingo and
staging that by the treaty with Brazil the
duty on our flour was reduced from $5 (O
toil per barrel, giving us that market.
The removal of the pork prohibition by
Germany without a treaty he says has
given us a market forA from (15,000,000 to
(20,000,000 worth of pork. He con
cludes as follows: "I am not, there
fore, an opponent of the McKinley bill, as
the Democratic papers of Ohio are con
stantly alleging. On the contrary, I have
cordially supported it evr since it was
perfected bv the insertion of the recipro

' THE METHODIST ECUMENICAL.
frvderation Unanimously Indorsed Other
Washington, Oct. 17. The subject of
Methodist federation was taken up again
in the Methodist ecumenical and a num
ber of apologies were offered for hard words
spoken during the "ruction" Thursday.
They were mutually accepted and every
thing was made serene again. After some
speeches in favor of federation the re
ports favoring the idea was unanimously
adopted. Another resolution was adopted
the pith of which was that men
of notoriously immoral life should not be
permitted to occupy public office, and
another demanding the complete suppres
sion of the opium trade. Rev. Dr.
Stephenson and Mr. Atkinson, of Eng
land, made apologies for words spoken
Thursday which the Primitive Metho
dists didn't like. One of the Primitive
Methodists arose and expressed the grate
ful appreciation of the delegation to Dr.
Stephenson for his kindly words, but
failed to notice Mr. Atkinson's remarks,
although the latter inquired it his words
had not been kindly.
Discussed Social Problems.
After this, the subject for the day, "So
cial Problems," was taken up, labor and
capital being the first division of the
topic. Hon Alden Spears said the work
ing day should be ten hours, while Rev.
Berry, of New Zealand, thought eight
hours enough and that the church
should take hold of labor ques
tions. I. R. Inch, of New Brunswick,
talked of combines of capital and said
those that developed resources were right,
but those which monopolize business were
wrong. Hon. J. D. Taylor, of Ohio, said
the remedy for labor troubles was the
church and prohibition. Rev. Thompson,
of London: Rev. McKee. of Ohio, and oth
ers discussed the duty of the church as to
the poor and all agreed that the church
should work for their benefit. Then mis
sions in heathen lands were discussed ai i
their importance was dwelt upon for the
remainder of the session.

Ssow Hill, Md., Oct. 1". At a mass-
meeting held here Wednesday night. Sen

standing by the side of a well-known

cracy and who will be one of the defenders
and promulgators of the grand old Demo
cratic party throughout the land." This
brought down the house. Mr. Gorman
was afterward informed that the boy was

THREE YANKEE SAILORS KILLED.
A Street Fight at Valparaiso, Chill, with
Valparaiso, Chili, Oct. 17. Three,
perhaps four, American man-of-war men
were killed and several others were more
or less severely wounded in a desperate
street ffht here yesterday afternoon with
a crowd of Chilian sailors. The Chilians
did not do all the fighting, for when the
fight was ended a number of them were
found to be pretty badly hurt, though so
far as can be ascertained none of them
Probable Canse or the Fight.
The American blue jackets who were
engaged in the battle were from the
United States cruiser Baltimore, and the
Chilians were from the various war ships
now in the harbor. It is impossible at
present to get the full particulars of the
fight or the names of the killed and
wounded. It is thought that the un
friendliness growing out of the United
