For Every Intelligent Citizen
to Consider and Ponder Over
Before Buying Clothing.
What a Progressive Retailer Spends Among His Fellow-Citizens
: During the Month, Every Dollar of It Coming Right Back to You
'•*,; in Some Way or Other.
It is circulated among all the various professions; there's not a profession
'".' escapes being in one way or the other employed by a retail dealer, some time during
.'•'•• the year. For instance, we employ
f GASFITTERS, CARPENTERS,
I GLAZIERS, PAINTERS,
•';'.. HACHINISTS, DRIVERS,
And a thousand and one expenditures which tend to circulate money among our people.
Now let us see what the Wholesaler Spends among the People:
yy?He pays rent and employs a porter, possibly a few traveling men who are away
•y; from the city most of the year.
;y_ : While we employ one hundred and ten (110) people, consisting of bright young
flymen, bright young girls and bright little lads. Where do they spend their money?
..: Among the people. They are employed tbe whole year round. Theiy money Is cir-
culated. They are paid liberally for their services. It all comes hack to you. But
.: does the money that the wholesaler expends ever reach you? Never a dollar of it.
'-'"."-He boards it up and once in a while is found in some club playing poker, and be
V never plays unless he thinks he can best his opponent.
'■• By what is a city gauged? What gives it a name for "go-aheadness?" Surely not
.; the dark, dull-looking wholesale districts, but the bright retail districts, which are
always aglow with bustle and activity.
,:.V Wherever you find a prosperous retail district you will tlwas find a prosperous
..; ; town, because retailers are continually spending their money in the hope of building
'._■ up a larger trade and adding more Duildings, while the wholesaler, if he ever arrives at
the stage of wealth, takes it with him to Europe and spends it abroad. The retailer's
.thoughts are to enlarge bis business, increase his sates force, spend more money among
. f you and cieate more prosperity for the city.
Who contributed so largely to the Midwinter Fair Fund ? The
j retailers, of course.
.. What did the wholesalers do? They gave mere small pittances, and would have
crawled out of that were it not for fear of being held up to ridicule.
■=;■"■■ Good citizens, bear in mind one thing: The retailers' prosperity means yours. Your
_v. trade should be with them. We want it, but we do not want to hos it all. Spend it
.. among the other retailers, because they do your city good, but the wholesalers will
: . ' never build up a great city for you.
THE LIVE RETAILER PLANS TO EMPLOY YOU.
THE WHOLESALER HAS NO USE FOR YOU

j the time the customs officers shot at the

in the morning of September 8 he was in

party," .his entertainment of the Women's
Exchange yesterday nt Black Point, but
the fates were unpropitious as far as the
"garden" part of it was concerned, for the
wind blew cold and raw, and a sullen fog
made the suu a prisoner tor the day.
Fogs and winds, however, are no
obstacles when a fete is in prospect, and
although it was not possible to utilize the
beautiful gn-uuds to the extent that had
been intended, the crowd that filled
avery available space in General Buger's
commodious house showed mat no one
stayed away on account of tin; weather.
General linger had turned over the whole
establishment unconditionally to the ladies
for the time being, and they hud hung its
walls with trailing vines and banked its
mantels with chrysanthemums and built
gay booth.- m unexpected corners, and done
all manner of delightful and mysterious
things to it, so thai it looked not iv the
least like a prosaic dwelling-house, but
rati er like a Pit of fairy land itself.
The south parlor was given up to the
sale of fancy work. Mrs. Henry Schmie

ler being the committee in charge. Dolls
of the most fascinating description, ar
rayed in the daintiest of costumes, smiled
coaxingly upon possible customers. Pin
cushions which were, as one young lady
expressed it, "perfect dreams of loveli
ness" lay side by side with sachets which
deserved no less commendation. Every
fascinating trifle which could possibly be,
evolved from silk and lace and velvet and
satin was displayed upon the tables in the
manner most calculated to make them
seem Irresistibly desirable lo 'he admiring
spectators, and the ladies who presided
over this department had evidently no
cause, from the size, of their receipts, to
believe that there is any such thing as a
financial stringency in the land.
Out in the ball two immense punch
bowls were pr?sided over by the Misses
Hughes, who were kept busy in supplying
the demands made upon them for the
'"liquid nectar," as an enthusiastic young
gentleman called it, which they dispensed

In the large dining-room Miss Laura
McKinstry. Mrs. Thomas Barry of Angel
Island. Miss Ruger, Miss Mac Dimond
and Miss Ella Hobart had charge of the
tea-table. Miss Crocker, assisted by Miss
Julia Crocker, Miss Jennie Blair, Miss A.

The large reception-room was set apart
for dancing, most delightful music being
furnished by an Hungarian orchestra, and
the library was changed into an abode of
mystery, a placard over the door an
nouncing that it, was the abode, for tho
time being, of "tin. sceres9 of the. Golden
Gate." Upou investigation the "seeress"
proved to be a charming young woman

pair of dancing eyes which did not look a
bit as if sho could see Into the future. A
puck of cards lay on the table before her
and beside her a pile of silver grew grati
fyinglv larger all through the afternoon.
"Tell you things?"
Of course, she could;' almost anything
you wanted to know, in fact. The "light

"dark man" and the "light woman," and
the "water to cross," ami the "enemy,"
and the "present," and the "wish" — why,
she Knew all about them, and so ni-ny
other things besides that her fame spread

For .that" s> .all . piece of silver one could
have the inestimable privilege of recording
his or her opinion as to who was the most
popular young lady or gentleman present.
A prize of a box of fancy candy lor the
lady and a hand-painted china cup and
saucer for the successful gentleman added
much to the interest of this part of the en
tertainment, and voting "early and often"
was indulged in openly.
In a musical way the fete was especially
noticeable since the Hungarian orchestra,
within doors, and the always excellent
Antrel Island band, in the grounds, ren
dered programmes of selections as delight
ful in execution as' they were varied in
theme. The music furnished by the
military organization was at* follows:
"Nest.r Dance," overture "Poet and i
Peasant," "Dolores Waltz," 'Chilean |
Dance," "Military Schottische," "Golden
Triumph." fantasia "Old Kentucky |
Home," "ln tlieClockstore"and "Postilion
One of the most delightful things about
the entire affair was its informality, and
the fact that it was, as it were, the realiza
tion of the inspiration of a moment.
At a meeting of the board of directors
of the Women's Exchanee a short time
since the idea of some kind of an enter
tainment to add to the funds of that most
wortliv and popular organization was dis
cussed, but rather doubtfully by reason
of the "financial situation."
Something novel would evidently be
needed they thought to make such an af
fair successful, and Mrs. Shatter and Miss
McKiustry proposed a garden party at
Black Point The idea was seized upon
with delight. General Ruger was only too
happy to do what he could for such a
worthy object, and so the ladies went to
work with a will and almost before they
realized it the whole affair was planned
and carried into execution with the success

Al White's Kindness Remembered.
Fourteen members of the crew of the
cruiser San Francisco arrived from New
York on the steamer Colon yesterday and
went up to Mare Island. The men bad
been furnished transportation by the
Government to come to San Francisco.
All of them assembled at Al White's
place yesterday afternoon and unani
mously expressed a desire that the San
Francisco be ordered back to tlie Pacific
Coast. They are all in love with the vessel
and more than pleased with their berths
"We don't like the Eastern climate,
though," said one of the men, "and we
; are all glad to get back to San Francisco."
While the Mohican was up north on
I several occasions she ran short of fresh
provisions. Al White, who is considered
■ as one of the best friends the navy boys
1 ever had in this city, sent the vessel a
lame supply of cabbages, potatoes and
j other vegetables, together with numerous
other presents.* Captain Ludlow person
\ ally addressed a letter of thanks to White,
and the crew of the Mohican presented
him on the day before yesterday with a
| beautiful diamond pin. The pin reore
i senta an anchor, upon which is inlaid in
enamel the inscription, "U. S. S. Mohican
to A I White."
White's kind acts to seamen have earned
for him a deserved popularity. The crew
of the Boston only recently presented him
with an elegant gold watch and a fine
American flag has also been added as a
gift from these same men.

WHEREAS, It has been the custom of the

of sending first to war such persons as have the
most properly to defend, and at the peril of
war, and such a system, In addition to being
just, would soon pul an end to war, therefore

The .Boston Team Given
Immense Crowds of People View a
Procession in Honor of the
The Boston Baseball Club it is true ar
rived in the city on Thursday night, but
its presence here did not assume the im
portance of official recognition until last
evening, when headed by a band and es
corted by the manager and players of the
home team, together with other invited
guests, the visitors were driven over a
portion of the business section of the city
and accorded a hearty welcome from the
immense crowds which lined the sidewalks
along the route
It reminded one of an old-time political
campaign, with the red fire and flaring
transparencies which announced to the
spectators that the champion ball-tossers
of the universe were among us.
Arrangements had been made to start
the procession from the Baldwin Hotel at
7:30 p. M., but it was 8 o'clock before the
carriages got under way. The delay was
said to be attributable to the fact that
Captain Nash had misplaced bis corset and
was thereby unable to complete bis toilet
until that essential article was found.
When the procession finally moved the
Park band led the way, and immediately
following came a carriage containing Man
ager Barnie and Captain Nash of the bean
eaters and Manager Gilbert of the home
team. Closely after came carriages of the
Boston players, and others in which were
seated the San Francisco talent, while
bringing up the rear was a carriage in
which members of the press were en
The band led the way from the Baldwin
d"wn Market street to .Kearny, then
Kearny to Clay, back to Market and up
that street to Seventh, whence the proces
sion returned to the starting point. When
the carriages left the Baldwin a mass of
people was packed into Powell street that
rendered passage almost impossible. A
fire in that locality undoubtedly attracted
some persons, but ihe great majority of
them were there for the purpose of getting
a glimpse ot the famous ball team from
the classic precincts of Boston.
The members of both teams were in uni
form, and the decidedly flattering recep
tion tendered them along the route, fol
lowed by the procession, gives promise of
a revival ot interest in the fascinating
game which will have as its exponents
among us for some months an aggrega

THE OLD DOMINION.
A Cleveland Appointee Says It Will
Colonel J. Hampton Hoge, tho newly
appointed United States Consul to Amoy,
China, arrived here last evening and
registered at the Baldwin Hotel. He is a
native of Koanoke, Va., 38 years of age.
He was appointed to the Chinese consulate
upon the recommendation of the Virginia
Congressional , delegation. During the
last eight years he has filled the office of

Colonel Hoge ; Is a married man. His
wife and two children will remain in Vir

who was elected to Congress, but who was
not fallowed to take his seat. Colonel
Hog* is also a grandson of General James

Referring to the Virginia State election,
which is to take place on November 7 next.
Colonel Hoge remarked that the leaders
of the Virginia Democracy feared disaster
to their party at the polls. The Repub
licans have no ticket in tbe field, having
joined forces with the Populists, who are
likely to sweep the State. He attributes
the pending Democratic discomfiture !o
the hard times in Virginia. There
is also treat dissatisfaction over
the proposed repeal of the Sher
man law; the friends of silver
in Virginia outnumbering the monometal
lists by five to one. The Farmers' Alliance
in Virginia has also made tremdons bead
way in politics. The cry of the moment is
for a farmer for Governor, and this is
likely to be met by the election of Mr.
Coche of Culpepper, the nominee of the
Populists, who is a representative farmer.
Tn« Democratic candidate is Charles
T. O'Farrell, a lawyer. The people will
elect also a Lieutenant-Governor and a
Legislature. The latter will have the
election of a United States Senator, Judges
of the Circuit Court, of the Court of Ap
peals and all other State officers.
