Three special features of great merit Dr. Jaegers
Underwear Dress Goods and Cloaks.
DR. JAEGER'S CELEBRATED SANITARY UJMDERWEAR
Wi.i be closed out this week at prices that will bring them within the reach of al
most everyone. We have decided to close out this line of underwear simply be
cause they arc too good for the popular trade, and to do it quickly we shall make a
discount of 20 per cent from the regular and universal list prices. This is an oppor
tunity that will probably not occur again. The goods need no recommendation. All
know that they are the best in the world. They are simply beyond the average
purse. At the prices we offer them, this barrier will be removed. Come early and
mike your selection.
Hop Sacking, "Three Half Yards Wide", $1 For 79c.
l'ure wool and two toned Hop Sackings 54 inch wide in browns, blues, greens and
ray, -will be placed on sale Wednesday morning and continue until Saturday night
if they last that long, and it is exceedingly doubtful, for it's not often you can buy
such stylish One Dollar goods for the very unsignificant sum of 79c 5 yds. are
s':;f'nent for a dress.
No doubt the ladies that could not be waited on Saturday in our Cloak
department will return early this week. Such crowds speak more than words in
commendation of this busy department. We were just rushed "about to death," as
the saying goes, and we trust that any seeming lack of attention will be overlooked
such busy times. It certainly pays to come back two or three times if necessary
order to get attention, as our garments have an enviable reputation for Style,
J'lt, and Finish, seldom attained anywhere. The prices of course are in keeping with
fjur principles as Leaders and Promoters of low prices. We have garments for
everybody, and it matters little whether you buy a low priced or a more expensive
garment, the fit and style are there just the same. A cordial invitation is extended
to all to visit this department.
Mail Orders carefully attended to. Satisfaction assured.

Dish Some Lightning Changes of the
Washington, Oct. 24. Mauy and start
ling as have been the changes that have
taken place in the situation with refer
ence to the repeal bill since that measure
was introduced in tbe senate there has
never before been a day which has wit
aessed so many as has the one which closed
with Faulkner's motion for a recess at 5
' clock yesterday afternoon. The day
itand with the announcement that the
jompromise was "off." Many were in
:lined to doubt the announcement that the
idministration had set the seal of its dis
tprroval upon the Democratic compro
mise, but very little inquiry was- neces
tary to satisfy them of the correctness of
this statement. Then came the talk on
the part of some senators of adjournment
is the best remedy for the situation, and
that was soon met with tbe Assertion that
cloture would t tbe j roper thing on tbe

Speedily were . there announcements

ly came the definite announcements.
made almost simultaneously, that there
would be no effort today at cloture and
'.hat the silver men had reorganized their
'orces and were prepared to continue tbe
5ght indefinitely. The most interesting
development of the day was on the silver
side, Whether given out in earnest or for
purpose, some of the silver senators an
nounced when they heard that the com
promise hill would uot be presented that
'.hey would make no more factious oppo
sition, but would give wav as soon as
their prepared speeches were concluded
ind let the repeal bill pass.
I'resto! the Situation Change.
But Senator Dubois was instrumental iu
bringing about tbe startling change,
which became apparent about 4 o'clock.
He crossed over to the Democratic side of
the chamber and began to investigate.
He met with much encouragement. The
situation was changed in ten minutes
Senator Pugh's services wern soon enlisted
and he went to work with a will. Tne result
was, be says, the finding of several silver
Democrats who had heretofore refused to
filibuster at all, who were willing to do all
in their power and to use whatever means
might appear most effectiveto prevent the
reachiriff'ot a vote upon repeal. He said
there were ten or twelve Democrats who
would stand out to the tad !o prevent this
result and who would report to filibuster
ing pure I'.ud simple to accomplish it if
Over Head and I.ars in tht Sinii.
Meautiuie tne i.pul:-ls, l U. r. Alien

desk. Au hour before IVfT.T had
authorised the statement that the Popu
lists were willing to throw uptlu-ir hand-.
When they came out of tliiscnii.'ercuce.into
which Dubois was invited before its close,
they were all prepared to coutiuuethe war
to the bitter end. When seen nt 4 o'clock.
Senator Faulkner said: "Half an hour
ago I told you a vote would tie taken in a
week, now it looks further off tbau ever."
Senator Hawley was encountered hurry
ing to catch a train at 5 o'clock. He was
oa the eve of starting to the World's fair.
"It looks to me,?' he said, "as if we were
about where we were on Aug. 7 last. I
had hoped to see tbe bill through, but I
feel that I must see the fair, and it now
looks as if I might visit it and get back in
time for the finish."
by the adrrlnlstratlon are also criticising
the course which has been pursued in the
compromise matter by tbe administration.
This is especially true of the repeal mem
bers of the steering committee.
There is no doubt that they were led to
believe before tbe agreement was signed
that the compromise would be approved
by the administration and that tbe presi
dent was at least willing that tbe bill, as it
was to be amended, should be passed.
rhey say that it was altogether favorable
to the administration view. They do not
take kindly to the fact that they should
lave been allowed to go so far in the mat-
ler and then be told that they have acted
s-ilhout warrant. Gray, a strong repeal
nan, who has taken an especially active
jart in securing the agreement, is among
:hose who are displeased with the change,
ind he is quoted as criticising the admin-
stration sharply upon what is cbaracter-
xed as its vacillating policy.
The senators opposed to unconditional
repeal who have been endeavoring forsev-
tral days to bring about a compromise
have not been deterred by the recent dec
laration that no compromise would be ac
teptable to the administration. These
lenators are still laboring to secure a ma
jority of Democratic senators to favor
compromise. One of them said that they
have secured thirty-six names, including
Daniel of Virginia.
The Republican senators will make an
effort to agree upon some measure upon
which both the repeal and silver Republic
ans can stand, and if they succeed which
hardly seems probable will try to get
Democratic assistance sufficient to put the
bill through the senate. It now develops
that there are eight Democrats who have
not signed the agreement to support the
compromise. They are Hill, Mills, Mitch
ell of Wisconsin, Mcrherson, Vilas, Voor
hees, Caffery and Irby.
Doings in Senate and Rouse.
Washington", Oct. 24. Stewart notified
the senate that he would offer an amend
ment to the repeal bill providing for a
compromise between the United States
and South and Central American repub
lics to adopt a common silver coin, legal
tender in all these countries. Jones gave
another section of his silver aerial and
then yielded to Teller, who after
giving another section of his speech yield
ed to Stewart, who yielded later to a re
cess until 10 a. ni. today.
The house agreed to the senate amend
ments to the Mormon church bill, passed
the printing bill and a bill to build a
revenue cutter for the lakes to take the
place of the Andrew Johnson, and then
put in the remainder of tbe day on the
bankruptcy bil, to which there is much
oppoi-ition. No action.
Notable Tenure of Office Case.
Washington, Oct. 24. Alexander R.
Xininger and Lewis E. Parsons, Jr., the
marshal and district attorney respectively
for the midille and northern districts of
Alabama, w ho were removed by the presi
dent and contested his right so to do on
tbe ground that their four years' term of
office had not expired, have taken the mat
ter before the United States supreme
court. The Alaliama court ordered them
to give up their offices to their successors,
which they refused to lio. Counsel now
asks the national supreme court .for leave
to file a petition of mandamus directing
the superior court to vacate its order re
quiring them to turn over their offices.

HANDLING CLOTURE WITH GLOVES,
But &oiue Senators Eager to Tight the
Cloture is n question which senaioisdis
cuss iu a whisper since the hot words of
last week. There c.-in be little doubt that
Voorbees had iu mind early in tbe day,
when he said be would ask for an adjourn
ment instead of a recess last night, the
bringing up of the cloture resolution to
day. When he afterward allowed Faulk
ner to move a recess iustead of an ad
' journm''nt be cut off all possibility of
taking that question up today. What
' may lie tbe design later in the week is not
known, lie may be awaiting the return
, of Senator Hill, who is the real author of
the cloture resolution, and he may be of
I the opinion that the senate is not in tem
per for the discussion of that question, de
bate upon wuicu generally excites more
feeling than upon .icy other topic.
There are, however, some senators who
think it should be given preference over
nil rttlmi tnnirtj tliTiir and f I'hii,.
j son and other repeal senators had a long
conference with the president. When
ne returnea to tne senate chamber Pal
mer said he thought cloture would be un
dertaken soon. "It has come," he said,
"to be a question whether' the minority
shall rule; it is more important even than
the financial question. We shall have to
have that fight out." It is believed that
Palmer expressed the sentiments of tbe
executive. The senators with whom he
talked got that impression. "If this is
true," said one of the repealers who has
been anxious for compromise, "we shall
have to reform the lines. Minority rule
wasjuot mentioned in the proclamation
calling for the extra session!'
There is no mistaking the fact that many
of the silver Democratic senators feel
greatly relieved that the compromise
amendment is not to be offered. They say
that they surrendered all tbeirconvictions
in order to promote harmony and secure a
settlement of the question, contrary to
their best judgment, and they are more
than willing to have tbe administration
take the responsibility of not accepting
the settlement. Soma of the repeal sena
tors who baie here I of ore stood staunchly
Mewart liaises a Laugh.
Washington, Oct. 24. While Stewart
was continuing bis serial in the senate
Dolph asked a question and Stewart said
be was glad the senator asked it, as it wa9
a point be wished to "elaborate oa." The
senate laughed and several members
begged Dolph to withdraw the question
Stewart said: "Vou caanot withdraw it,"
and the senate laughed again, while Stew
art began bis "elaboration" and Dolph
took refuge in flight.
The "l almetto" Brand of "Budge."
Washington, Oct. 24. Justice Bradley,

state of South Carolina.

Bowery Chicago had a Midway that could
