C, TUESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 55, 1885. PRICE TWO CENTS. WASHINGTON (S i Woodward & Lotiiuoi. Must Be Sold in Noycrite, The extraordinary sales in Dress Goods during the past few days have convinced us that to a certain extent the demand for those goods has been curtailed by the un favorable and unseasonable condition of the weather. In view of this fact, and in order to crowd an im mense business into a few weeks, and also to distribute the very large purchases made by us, we shall, from this day, make such 8WKi:iiNfi numioTioNS IN WOOMSN HKUSS r.VHUICM as will undoubtedly cause the entire disposal of this stock during November. Our only excuse for this extraordinary sale is that they must be sold this uionti, in order to reduce the stock to the lowest possible point, and we reduce the price now, while the goods arc in de mand and seasonable in preference to waiting, as many do, until the end of the season, when the goods have become undesirable. A Grand Value 42-inch Rough - and - Ready Boucle ouiungs, superD coionugs, llidu'ced from $1 ti 7i per y'll.

Unquestionably the best and most popular of Dress Fabrics in the market for tailor-made costumes; seems a pity to mark them down, but they must be sold during November. Annul Closing Snlo or Combination DrcNsIiitteirns. Customers who have ex amined these goods will no doubt be surprised to find them included in this sale, but we can only say they, too, must be sold in Novem ber while in demand and seasonable. $11,211 Ciimliliiutlim rallnriiB at :I10. tflB.T.'i L'oiiihiiiiitiiin I'litlorm at $10. We shall also include in this wonderful sale two lines of 42-inch French Plaid Suit ings, in the best, richest and most harmonious line ot col orings ever exhibited by us at the price. Jtcduecd from Ijsl.SS to Itin pur yd. ltt'iluri-il from ijll to 7."o pur yd. Our prices are, and always have been, the lowest. Con sidering this undisputed fact, we think these prices will commend the above goods to the public as values not to be found in this or any city. Customers will do well to examine this stock now, be fore the best is picked there from, as we do not think such an opportunity 'will oc cur again this season. WOODWAHl) & LOTIIUOI'.

The election Is for County Commissioner, n Judge of tho Superior Court and one Supremo Court Judgo.'' In ll.o course ol the conversation -Mr. Van Pelt fully maintained his position ns a prac tical politician In tho strictest sense.
