THE dealers who do so
much talking about the
amount of money they
save to the purchasers of
clothing are the VERY
ONES who are making it
more expensive.
For instance, you cannot
get a whole page advertise
ment for nothing. Neither
can any man afford to sell
you goods for LESS than
COST and succeed. Those
who advertise goods at one
half or one-third of their
value, at the end of the sea
son, must NECESSARILY
make an ENORMOUS
PROFIT now in order to
even up.
We never indulge in such
cut-rate sales, but prefer to
keep on as we have been
doing for yearskeep the
EXPENSES down to the
lowest possible NOTCH in
order to quote LOWER
prices on our clothing. We
can suit you with ANY
THING you need in cloth
ing for MEN or BOYS and
at proper prices. Call and
examine our stock.

Tho Testimony fthou by FInmeiibaum

After Laving taken up much nt
Judge Miller's time in tho I'olico Court
for tbicc days, Isaac Grccnapplc and
Ills wife Boso wcro ycstculay after

and both leleased from custody. Three
witnesses wcic called by tho defence,
who testified that Flamenbaum had
lold them after tho flic that ho knew
nothing about tho oiigin of it, but pre
sumed that It had boon staited by a
cnndlc which had been left burning on
the dining-room table.
After tho evidence was in tho Gov
ernment recalled Flamenbaum to tho
Bland, but thoy would not havo done so
bad thoy known what a surpiise thero
was in storo for them. After reiterat
ing some or his original statements ho
frankly admitted that howasthed of
lying about tho case and would begin
lo tell tho ti nth. Ho then said that he

from beginning to end. lie assigned
as the icason for accusing Grccnapplc
that Mr. Goldman had told him that
unless ho accused Giecnapple of stall
ing the firo that ho Flamenbaum would
bo charged with it.
These admissions settled tho caso
and tho chaigo of aison was im
mediately dismissed.
Tho probabilities aio that Flamen

can bo divided. The only other sale
iccoidcd was of 25 shares of Ameilcun
Security and Trust stock at 40L a de
cline of i sinco tho last salo. This
company is under able management
and Is believed to bo earning good
pioilts on its capital, which, with !I5
uaid in, amounts to neaily $410,000.
The possibility that no further assess
ments may be made, though tho nominal
par of the stock Is 100, makes It a do
thablo investment.
Theie was a much firmer feeling
manifested yesterday in U. S. Eicctiic
Light stock, nnd tho disposition to bear
this pioperly seems a Httlo too danger
ous to be continued nt much length.
The onlyoffcilng was nt 117, an ad
vance of 2J points over tho last lccordcd
sale. The action ot the Senate Dlslilct
Committee in tho mattei of eleclilc
lighting for the stietts of AVnshlngton
nnd Georgetown ought to advance tho
value of this stock. The commltleo
lefusc to allow "tho Commissloneis to
grant pcimi'-slon, under such icasoiinble
conditions ns they may piesciibo to
authoilcany tolegiaph, telephone or
electric light company to lay wiics
under any stiect, alley, highway, foot
way or sidewalk in tho District, when
ever, ln"thflr judgment, the public
intciest may icqulro tho cverciso of
such authority." This pilvllogc, which
an amendment to tho House District
Appiopiiation bill proposed to give the
Commissioners, Is left out of the Senate
bill. As tho picsent eicctiic lighting
company Is a local cnlerpiise, having a
largo capital aud under tho contiol of
some ot tho wealthiest nnd most re
sponsible men in the District, it is not
doubted Hint Congiess will grant them
tho pilvllego of extending their wires
to whatever portion of the cities of the
District public necessity may require
this method of lighting.
Tho Senate committee also struck
out fiom tho bill the passage giving
tho Commissloneis the power to sub
stitute other illuminating material for
electricity, and raised tlio appiopiia
tion for eicctiic lighting fiom !M5,000,
tho sum paid last year, to $10,000.
There is a good demand for the stock
of tho West End Nntlonnl Bank. This
stock lacks but $10 per share of being
full paid, nnd Is selling for 02 to 02.
This bank has recently becu a free
lender, and on best colfateinl security
has money to put out at 5 per cent, per
annum. On Monday, tho 21st Inst.,

HIS COUNSELS' REASONS WHY HE
SHOULD DE RELEASED.
Mcdlcnl Testimony that Confinement
In tlio District dull Would Itcsutt
Disastrously to tho l'rlsniiorVlR
tirous Opposition ortho Government
Piomptly nt 11 o'clock this morning
Cliatlcs E. Klncald, accompanied by
his counsel, General Grosvcnor, O.
Mnurlco Smith, Judgo Wilson and Don
W. Voorhecs, entered tho Criminal
Court room nnd look his scat befme the
bench, Juduc ICincaid showed the of
furls of his close confinement in the
District jail, but did not seem to mani
fest any nervousness.
District Attorney Hogan said that be
fore piocccdlng willi any nigumonts on
the motion for ball he would ask that
tho defendant bo formally nnolgned.
This wns conceded, nnd, with tlio" con
sent of Judge Blnghnm, Mr. Klncald
remnlncd seated while Clctk Clark read
the indictment charging him with tho
murder of W. P. Tnulbcc. When
asked as to what his plea was Mr. Kin
cold, in n clear voice, said "Not
guilty."
Mr. Smith then piocccdcd with his
statement ns to the grounds on which
ball was asked. He sold that tho de
mand wns mndo on account of the sick
ness of his client, nnd that thev could
substantiate by the affidavits "of four
doctors the condition ot tho defendant.
Judge Hogo objected to tho reading
of tho affidavits fiom tho resident doc
tors, na their own testimony could bo
heard on tho stand. As for tho two
non-resident physicians their deposi
tions could bo rend.
Dr. J. Byrtl Harrison stated that he
had been Mr. lvincald's physlclnn l'or a
number of years; that ho had been
broken down physically for a long
while, and that his present condition
was of low health. Ho was suffering
from mental dcpicssion and irritability.
In his opinion, tho oflect of n trial for
his lilo at tho present time would bo
exceedingly daugcious to his health,
and might lcsult fatally. Dr. Harrison,
in reply to questions from Dls
tiict Attoincy Ilogc, also added
that for six weeks previous to the shoot
ing Mr. Eincald had been confined in a
daik room and received nlmost constant
attention. Mr. Kincald's nervous con
dition to day was better than at that
time, but his physical condition was
inuchwoise. Dr. Hairlson maintained
ibat his patient's confinement in tliu
jail for a period of si- weeks or two
months, followed by tho excitement of a
trial, would without doubt culminate
disastrously.
"Why aio you of such a firm im
piession that this confinement in jail
for two months longer may terminate
fatally ? " asked Judge Hogc.
'Bccauso his ill condition is pro
grcssive. Ho was physically worso
when I called on him in the jail two
days ago than I ever saw him, and tho
confinement has pioduccd ngcravation
nnd operated very much against him.
Ho needs better food, moic checiful
sunounding nnd lellcf fiom the monot
ony oillfoiu jail."
"When, then, do you think he will
bo better able lo stand tiial than now?"
"Ghohlm n chance nnd sec what
benefit will come from It."
Di. Ilanlson, continuing, held that
tho District jail, on account of its closo
location to tho Anacostia Bivcr and tho
lack of sunlight, was not a healthy
place for ati unwell man.
Dr. C. Mnuilco Muirny tcslificd that
he bad known Mr. Kiucoid since 18S8,
when he was consulted by him In a
medical way. He had not attended him
professionally since, but had ficqucntly
seen him. Tho Doctor said tbat ho
could concur with Dr. Hnrrlson as to
the tffect of continued confinement In
jail for a man in Judge lvincald's con
dition.' This concluded tho tcstlinonv, after
which Mr. Smith lend the nilldavlts
of G.JW. Howell of Morristowu. N. J.,
and Dr Louis S. McMurtrle of Louis
ville, Ivy. Both aio eminent ph.ai
cinns and give ns their opinion that
closo confinement under tho ciicuui
stances might icsult disiistiously.
Mr. Smith called tho attention of
Judge Bingham to soveial law decisions
in suppoit of the position takon by tho
ueienso inai meir cueni was entitled to
ball in consequence of his unhealthy
condition. Other authorities wcro
read showing that tho judgo
could with all propriety exercise good
sound disciction In ndmittlng to ball
when it was thought that confinement
would jeopardize tho health of the
applicant. Mr. Smith said, futhermoic,
unit tho pioctlce of this Court was to
admit to ball In cases of this description.
Assistant District Attorney Lipscomb
denied that it had been the practice to
admit to ball iu cases of this kind, anil
hi did not think that in n single homi
cide ense bail had been asked for or
Granted. Mr. Lipscomb rovicwed tho
aulhoiltles cited by Mr. Smith, and
signed that he could not seo
how any of them ntiplecd to
this case. IIo did not dispute tho
discicllonniy power of tho judgo to
giant bail, but ho questioned whether
the icasons given woro good and suffi
cient. Had Mr. Klncald, Instead of
rtmalnlng dormant, shown some dispo
sition to havo tlio enso tiled, It would
be different. But ho had tiled to avoid
tiial, and thus been the causo of keep
ing himself In jail.
Gtnernl Grosvcnor of Ohio followed
Mr. Lipscomb briefly nnd differed ma
terially with the position taken by tho
Government, that tho law cases cited
did not apply.
District Attorney Hogo concluded
tho argument In behalf of the Govern
ment this afternoon.
Judgo Wilson concluded for the de
fendant, and Judge Binghum rcscived
his decision,

YUilltler'H Salutation nnd Itouo
diction I'rcnldent Harrison De
liver nuAddreftft to tho l'resident,
Tho International American Confer
ence nt 12 o'clock to day adjourned sine
die. Prior to adjournment tho delegation
from Chili offered a resolution, whlclt
was adopted, that to commemoralo this
conference U10 countiies represented
nsfeoclntc themselves with tlio United
States In celebrating tho four-huu
dredth anniversary of the discovery of
America by Columbus.
Besolutlons thanking tho vnrlout
oillccis of tho confluence were also
adopted.
Secretary Blalno made a cloatnj
speech, which was delivered with much
lccllog and leceivcd with great enthu
siasm and chceis. The speech wa3 as
follows.
"Gentlemen: I withhold for a mo
ment tho woid of final adjournment in
order that I may express to you the
profound satisfaction with which tho
Government of the United States re
gards the work that has been accom
plished by tho International Conference.
Tho importance of the subjects
which hnvo claimed your atten
tion, the comprehensive ' intelligence
and watchful patriotism which you
hao biought to their discussion, must
challenge the confidence nnd secure tho
admiration of tho governments nnd
peoples whoinyod represent; while that
larger patriotism which constitutes tho
fraternity of nations has received from
you nn impulse such as tho world has
not before seen.
"Tho extent nnd value of all that has
been worthily achieved by your con
ference cannot bo mcasuied lo dny.
Wc stand too near it. Time will de
fine and heighten tho estimate of your
work; experience will confirm our
present faith; final results will bo your
vindication and your triumph.
"If, in this closing hour, the con
ference hnd but ouo deed to celebrate,
we should dare call the world's atten
tion to the deliberate, confident, solemn
dedication of two gieat continents to
peace, nnd to tho prosperity which has
peace for its foundation, 'We hold up
this new magna charta, which abol
ishes war and substitutes aibitration
between the Araericnn republics ns tho
first and groat fruit of the international
American conference. That noblest of
Amei leans, the aged poet and philan
thropist, "Whllticr, is the first to send his
salutation and his benediction, declar
ing 'If In the spirit of peace the Amcri
can Conference agrees upon a rule of
arbitration which will mike war in this
hemisphere well nigh impossible, Its
session will pioc ono of tho most im
poitont events In tho history of tho
world.'
"I am instiuclcd by tho Prcsldcut to
express the wish that before the mem
bcis of the confcrcnco shall leave for
their distant homes thev will accept tho
hospitolltv of the United States in a
visit to the Southern section of tb.12
Union, similar to the ono they havo
alicady mndo to the Eastern nnd Wet
em sections. Tho President trusts that
the lour will not only boa pleasant inci
dent of your fnicwcll to tho country,
but that jou will find advnntago in n
visit to the interesting nnd impoitnnt
part of our Bepublic.
"Jlayl expiess to you, gentlemen,
my dtcp appiccbition of tho honor you
did me in calling 1110 to presldo over
your deliberations. Your kindness has
been unceasing, and for your formal
words of approval I oiler you my sill
ccrest giatitudc.
"Invoking tho blcssinc of Almighty
Grd upon tho patriotic "and fraternal
woik which has been here begun for
the good of mankind, I now declaro
the American International Conference
adjourned without day." TChccis.
The delegates then left their ciuartcts
to pay their respects to the Chief ilagis
trote. Upon reaching the Incentive Man
sion the rnn-Anicrican delegates wero
ushered Into the Bast Boom, wheio
thoy formed a ciiclc. The Piesidcnt
entered the room on the arm of Sccic
tary Blalno and took each delegate by
thc hand, ns he was iutioduced by this
Ptcietnry. The delegates wero taken
by surprise when tho President, stepping;
slightly foiwnrd, addressed them as
follows.
"Gentlemen: I find In this parting
call of the delegates to the Conference,
of American States both pain and
plcnsuic. I participate in thoicsret
which tho delegates fiom tho United
Slates nnd nil our people fee! in pitt
ing from those who havo como from
other SUtcs to tako pait in this formal
confeicuce. I ilnd pleasure In tho
fatt that your labors have now
been brought to a happy conclusion.
Dillcrcnccs of opinion have been hap
pily leconciled. I exceedingly rojolco
that a proposition which will bo produc
tive of pence among the Amcilcan
States rcpiescntcd in tho confcicnco
has been agreed upon. It will be with
out cause If ono of them shall lift a
hostile hand against tho other. We
gave you tho other day a review of i
small detachment of tho American
Army, not to 6how you that wo
havo an army, but that wo
havo none; that our security
Is not an armed force but in the law
abiding loyalty ot people. "We re
joice that ) ou havo found In the organ
intiou of our Government something
suggesllvo and woithy of Imitation.
We shall bo glad to lccelvo from you
new lessons of self-govcrnmcut in ru
tin n.
"In conclusion I find much to approves
of the friendly purpecs of tho con
feicnce towards this Government, and
1 will uow bid each of you a heartfelt
good-bye."
Tho remarks of tho Piesidcnt wero
gicetedwlth npplnuse. The delegates
took their dcpaituio. About forty ot
them expect to goon tho Southern trip,
leaving 'Washington at 11 o'clock
to-night.
