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

People by its better values. We think
we have achieved the heighth of excel

Sprixgfikld, 111., Oc. 21. The meet-
i ig of the stat. assembly of the F. M. B.
A. began yesterday morning with about'
ISO delegates in attendance. President
Ccero J. Lindley, executive committee-
min; E. S. Wilson, W. M. Barnett,
G-'orge Wickline, J. M. Washburn, of
Williamson county; Herman E. Taubeu-

were prominent figures at the gathering
of the body one year ago, are all absent
now, and the indications are that the pro
ceedings will be tame and devoid of public
Mo Politics in the Meeting.
Party politics does not seem to be cut
ting any figure, and Lindley, Wilson,
Barnett, Stewart, Wickline, Secretary
Robinson, and men of that stamp declare
that nothing of the kind will be tolerated
la the assembly. Even Tanbeneck, who
is at the head of the People party, declares
that if a movement were to be made to
commit the association to the new party
o: to the indorsement of the Cincinnati
platform he would oppose It to the utmost
or Lis ability. Leading Kepuoncans,
Djmocrats, and People's party men seem
ta be united on that point. After the
assembly had been called to order yester
day morning committees were appoiuted,
the resolutions committee being headed
by H. E Taubenrck.
New Trade Methods Satisfactory.
M. D. Coffeen, general and state trade
commissioner, submitted a report snow
ing the results that had been accom
plished by the improved methods of trade
that bad been adopted by the association.
This was so satisfactory to the assembly
that Mr. Coffeen was accorded a vote of
thanks, and he was at once Te-elected by
acclamation. The committees retired to
work, and while they were out General
Organizer Boles addressed the assembly.
And the committee subsequently recom
mended that organizers be kept in the
field. The secretary's report shows that
the membership is fully 50,000 in the
Want a Graduated Income Tax.
The assembly held a protracted session
last night and considered the resolutions.
The committee made its report at 8
o'clock, and an effort was made to force
its adoption as a whole, but as many of
the delegates carae loaded with speeches
the effort failed and the assembly pro
ceeded to the consideration of the resolu
tions separately. The first declared in
favor of a graduated income tax and this
went through without opposition. Next
was one on the free and unlimited coinage
of f-ilver, and this gave rise to a pro
longed and animated del ate. Ax large
majority of the delegates favor the spirit
of the resolution and the division was
mainly as to the phraseology, which was
Discussed Them All the Evening.
The spirit of the resolutions as a whole,
it is declared, is in substantial accord
with the resolutions adopted by the last
a-sembly. They favor a uniform system
of text books for the public schools, to be
furnished by the state at actual cost, tbs
election of president, vice president and
United Stales senator by direct vote of
the people and oppose fostering one in
dustry at the expense of another. The
sub-treasury proposition ot the Alliance
people, it is said, is not touohed upon.
T.ie delegates sat all ttie evening with
c jjaei doors, and will probably report the
resolutions some time today.

Jacksonville, Fia., Oct. 21. Nearly
300 delegates to the Florida Farmers' Al
liance convention are in the city. The
sub-treasury scheme and a resolution com
mitting the Alliance men to the sunport
of only Alliance candidates at the next
state election will be the principal topics
before the convention.

at Hyde Park were they successful unless
they could show naturalisation papers
dated prior to 1670. At Hyde Park the
judges compromised and entered the
women's names on Blips of papjr instead
of the books, but none of the judges would
write the word "qualified" after the name,
even there. Among these who went to be
registered was Mrs. Judge Tuley. She
was courteously received, was sworn and
aswered h'.I the questions, whereupon
her name was entered, but without tbs
necessary word "qualified" after it. At
mai.y ot the precincts, however, the
idges peremptorily refused to enter
women s names in any manner. Mis
Ada C. Swe.t was one ot these and she
has entered a protest. There were probably
10,000 women offered to register, 5,U0 ot
whom got their names down.
REGISTRATION OF WOMEN.
Chicago Fair Ones Who Are Desirous of
Voting at Elections.
Chicago, Oct. 21. The chief interest in
the registration of voters which began
yesterday centers in the action of the
women, who c aim that under the ne
law they should be allowed to register.
This is iu spite of the fact that the election
commissioners and the county judge have
sent out printed instructions to judges and
clerks not to register any women except
those naturalized prior to 1879. But the
women get behind the opinion of their at
torneys, who tbey say bive as much right
to express an opinion on the subject as the
attorney of the board ol election commis
sioners. So yesterday morning many
women who want to exercises the pnvi
lege ot casting a ballot for the candidates
for school Buperlntenaent;presenta them
elves before the election officers.
' Th. Stat, of th. Case.
The trouble is with the wording of the
law which was supposed to grant to wom
en the privilege ot voting for school offi
cers. It has been construed by the law
officers of the election board to require
that a woman, to be allowed to vote, must
have been naturalised prior to 1870. The
women have been fighting this before the
board for a week, but the board has stuck
to its decision. And another thing ti,e
women "kick" about is the refusal ot the
election commissioners to construe the
words "male citizens" in the law ai in
successes and Failures.
Notwithstanding these decisions the
women made raids on a 1 the registration

among other things: "We are opposed,

Thomas, of Denver, was elected chair
man, and C. A. Atkinson, permanent sec
retary, with a long list of vice presidents.
Chairman Thomas made a speech review

devise ways of letting foreign countries

beings corn is; for the protection of the
forests; for the appointment of a western

Russia Celebrating a Fight in Which She
Had Comparatively Little Glory.
London, Oct, 21. Sc. Petersburg was
en fete yesterday from the most gorgeous
palaces to the most humble tenements,
for the czar had issued a decree that the
sixty-fourth anniversary of the battle of
Navarino, where, in 18J7, the combined
British, French and Russian fleets under
Sir Edward Codrington annihilated the
Turkish and Egyptian navies, should be
celebrated with special pomp and signifi
cance. It was made the occasion also of
the launching of three Russian ironclads,
one of tbem, the Navarino, being a battle
ship ot immeuse size and power.
x What th. Turk Thinks About It.
A dispatch from Constantinople says
that the Turks feel very deeply the cele
bration by Russia ot the fearful defeat
which the Turks suffered in this naval
battle. Among naval officers here the
celebration is looked upon as a piece of as
sumption on the part of Russia, England
and France having played a more con
spicuous part on that occasion, when
the naval power of Turkey was crushed
out forever, than the Russians. It is,
however, one ot the few naval victories
in which Rusria has bad ' any part, her
navai history generally being a monot
onous record of defeat.
True lad ward oess tf the Festival.
The celebration is looked upon, how
ever, as having another and more impor
tant aspect that of hostility to Turkey.
Iu view of the fact that Rusria's share in
the victory was not ot sufficient conse
quence to justify much rejoicing over, it
U considered that the czar chose an occa
sion to make a display to his people and
to all the world ot bis dislike lor the
Turk, and of unalterable hostility to
ward the sublime porte. '
