IT A T FQ mW^W^ Jo.____£tLJLi Jk i 3 # Grand Central Depot. Oar ran of business during the past week has-been extra-, ordinary. Some of onr neighbors feel somewhat irritated* by onr success ; in fact, the indications are that the disease is somewhat chronic. The light skirmishing they ha^e indulged in with regard to certain merchants, aiming to secure a certain class of trade, shows considerable virus. The clause reads thus "The object of some ■ merchants is to secure the patronage of the poorer class *of people." ew OUR OPPONENTS HAVK HIT THE NAIL'kIGHT ON THE HEAD U HALE BROS, do (and we emphasize it) aim to secure the patronage Of the '.' -Poorer ■ff Class , of People," and we may add that our endeavors to" secure that portion of the community are eminently successful. " THE POOKER CLASS" DO COME TO OUR HOUSE, and we do our utmost to make the Poorer Class feel perfectly at. home when they come to see us, and we feel proud of the confidence reposed in us by " the Poorer Class of People," and it shall remain a settled purpose with -HALE BROS.'to continue on cultivating the respect, esteem and confidence of " the Poorer Class of People," and we are perfectly certain that by so doing, the RICH will take no umbrage ; their educa- tion and intelligence are far beyond the reach of the taffy of our competitors, and is not narrowed to the limits of those who passed the slur upon the poor. "The Poorer Class of the People" do not require and have no use for the commodites the Rich may buy, but the Rich do require a thousand articles that J ' the Poorest of the People" buy, and our experience during the past sixteen months shows that although our business is largely with "the Poorer Class of People," yet a considerable portion of our patrons are wealthy. One word with regard to the ambition of our competitors to carry out the " Real Mission of the True Merchant :" .We opine that the " Real Mission of the True Mer- chant" is to make money, and we certainly think (that without gauging the intelligence of the rich), that the most untutored and unlettered individual in the class designated by our opponents as the " Poorer Class of the People," know full well (despite the halo of glory and self-abnegation with which our competitors desire to invest themselves), that the object of the " True Merchant" is to make money. ,THE GREAT REMNANT SALE OF HALE BROS. FITS IN HERE EXACTLY it was inaugurated .to save money, if not to make it direct. The fact is, that were the REMNANTS allowed to remain in our store they would depreciate ; therefore we consider, that the first lots is best. We sell the goods and get the interest of the money turned ", over, and we need not refer you to a banker to elucidate the theory. OUR SUCCESS DURING THE PAST WEEK . HAS BEEN ASTONISHING. - ; t ?- -■-''- -■'>'--- We know that our institution is not perfect no human institutions are" but there is one thing on which HALE BROS, do pride themselves, and that is the absolute con' lidenoe placed in them, not only by " the Poorer Class of People," but by every section of tho community. '."_' The Result is Satisfactory! HALE BROS. PARTITIONS ARE GIVING WAY, WALLS ABE BEING PULLED DOWN, OTHER DEPARTMENTS ARE SOON TO BE ADDED, AND WE ARE LITERALLY COVERING THE GROUND. We have grown from 22x70 to- an area of O, SOO feet, and we are not slow to acknowledge that our success is largely attributable to "THE POORER CLASS OF PEOPLE," and it is our determination to give "the Poorer Class of the People" all the advantages compatible with the interests of our House. Wo may say, in conclusion, that Our Counters aid Tables Are Loaded lift Remnants of Every Description, Suitable for Rich or Poor, and our invitation includes all classes— high or low, rich or poor, learned or illiterate— you will all find a hearty welcome at HALES GRAND CENTRAL DEPOT. Just one word and we have done. We do our best to have our employes gentlemen. We impress upon them the necessity of studious attention and politeness to our patrons, and should they fail in this respect, we trust that our friends will not visit the sins of the Clerk on the shoulders of the Firm. If anything is wrong, we will endeavor to right it. One of the Firm or the Superintendent is constantly on the floor, and will rectify any misunderstanding that may possibly occur. DE" I _BST A X« Z2 Z TO-DAY and for the ensuing week the REMNANTS will be supplemented with a thousand lots of articles from every department, at prices that will suit even " the Poorer Class of the People."

It is thought significant by some persons that one or two s alwarts who _ were : loudest In ; deny ing; those . reports are now silent. It is said that considerable money changed hands on the vote yesterday, parties betting that there would be an election. Offers to bet were freely made last night again. A close canvass failed to find any of those reported ready to change their votes. The report about Speaker Sharpe declaring tbat he would soon change his vote is flatly contra dicted. He will not indicate his intentions, but points to his record thus far to show where he is. A light vote is expected to-day, as jimmy have gone borna r.s usual, after pairing. The general opinion 'is that both Miller and Lapham - have . reached their highest vote, and cannot be elected this week. Next week may bring a eolation. Is:iir;«-il for Murder— A Sickening Adair. Little Pock (Ark.), July 16th.— Ga zette* Stanburs special gives an account cf tbe hanging yesterday of a negro, Willis Reeve?, for the murder of a negro boy a few months ago. A great crowd thronged the streets. Reeves was a muscular, ill-favored fallow, 20 years old. He had offered to bet $1,000 that he would never be hanged,', and once started to run away from the Sheriff. When the Sheriff j attempted -to place the rope around his arms be fought like a tiger, both men tumbling around the sceffold till the Sheriff fell through the trap, a:_d the prisoner was barely stopped from jumping off upon the points of the bayonets of the guards. Finally he was secured, the noose adjusted, and the trigger sprung, but the rope was so long that bis feet touched the ground, and he had to be pulled tip through the trap to readjust the rope. .Ho was badly worn out, but not too weak to roundly berate the officials for - their cruel carelessness." The scene was 'most sickening. The second ' at tempt was successful, death ensuing, and the body was cut down and buried in the adjoin ing graveyard.

Several prostrations from heat have occurred, but none are seriou?, with one ex ception, that of Thomas Inghs, a Union Pa cific engineer, who was Biiustruck while sur veying yesterday afternoon. He ie delirious, and is suffering intensely. . It .is probable that he will not recover. Train Robbery and Murder. .".Kaxsas City (Mo.), July lttth.— lt is re ported that the Rock Island train,' due in this city last nij/lit, was side-tracked at Winslow Station, near Cameron Junction, about 7 o'clock, and boarded by a band of despera does, who killed the conductor and robbed all the passengers, mail asd express c_ii3. : [SECOND DISPATCH.) Kansas City, July 16ih.— A train robbery occurred last nicht on the llock Island Kail road at Wins'.ow Station, near Cameron Junction. When the train, which left this city last night in '. charge of Conduc tor Wcetwell, reached ■ that point |at 9:30, a gang of desperadoes disappeared and .sidstiacked ' the - train. Every car was boarded. The conductor was killed and the passengers robbed. It is impossible to get any partic Ure up to a late hour. Winslow is in an open prairie countiy, and would seem to be the last place on the line that robbers . would select for ' such an operation ; but the vicinity ha? a very hard population, and it i-ino'; improbable that the outlaws would be assisted in their efforts to escape pursuit. The first report of the robbery received in this city started numerous rumors about the notorious James brothers, but all speculation is idle at present. Tlie New York Robbery. . NEW York, July 10th. — The robbery at the Grand Central Depot yesterday was com mitted boldly in tha open street. The clerk and office boy of Jake Rnppert, a well-known biewer, were drivicg down town fa a light wagon to deposit about 19,300 in bills and a bag of silver. . At Forty-seventh street a ven dor's wagon ran into them, from which three men sprang into Kuppert's wagon. ' Two at tacked tbe clerk and the other cut the reins of the horses. They seized the money, quickly jumped back into their own wagon and drove furiously down Lexington avenue, dropping the bag of silver in their haste. •'-. j IOill.l(.>. - " •" -ff'- :.'e ■■.« ;.;:; !

It commenced in the kitchen, bet no fire had been there since the evening before. The loss is about $2,000, covered by SBOO insurance. : The wind was perfectly still, or an extensive conflagration would have ensued. The residence of Sheriff Sprague, next adjoining," was considerably scorched, and the whole block is closely occu pied by dwellings, including the Congrega tional church, gnu Francisco Stork Sates. _ .

New York, July 17th.— The Times' Al bany-special says: Before the open contest in the joint Assembly the stalwarts met, as they had for several days, in tbe office of Attorney-General Ward, in the State Flail. The attendance ef stalwarts was large, bnt not ' full. _ - -The proceedings were stormy. | Senator Winslow presided, and speeches were made by a number of members, but that of Speaker Shsrpe was the one of the day. In plain words he expressed anew the opinion he had rather hinted than declared outright be fore, and told Ms comrades he intended to abide absolutely by the will of the majority as expressed in caucus, and to vote for both caucus candidates. This declaration stirred the blood of some of the Conk ling men. As semblyman Armstrong, of Oneida, made a tempestuous attack upon General Sharpe, tellicg him that bfo desertion of Conk ling was an act of treachery, ' and that his proposed vote for Lapham and Miller would present him before the people of the State as an im-rate and political scoun- j drel. - He said the Speaker owed whatever of political success he had ever, achieved to ths advice and influence of Roscoe Conkling, and that he could not now abandon _ him without receiving the reproaches if every Conkling man in the State. Speaker Sharpe objected to this sort of talk,' but still maintained his purpose of abiding by the action cf the em eus. Louis ;F. Payne, who was present, gave him a " piece of his' mind" in language that was intended to bs strong rather than elegant, and denunciatory remarks were also made by Senators Hal! eit, Stretban and Breonao, and by Assemblymen Carpenter, Williams and me or two others. Senator Wallace .md Araemblymen Bti^ham, Camp bell, Sullivan, Dickey, A! void and Jackson expressed their intention of voting for Miller, but of still standing by Conkling. _ • ' _ : . Too Sun's Albany correspondent says the friends of Conkling still hold the key to the situation. They have twenty-tine vote?, and so long as they can hold then no other Re publican can hi elected, unless the Den crats, by remaining away, furnish the oppor tunity. The tine record they have made in this contest thus far, which drew from Speaker Sharps and Senator Halbcrt words of praise in their speeches to-day, they are not likely to destroy now by any suicidal course. How much longer the struggle will continue no one can tell. 'If Conkling will consent to name some man beside himself Lapham can be defeated before the middle of next week ; that the rank and file of his sup porters are willing to desert upon such a com promise is beyond question ; if not, then so long as his twenty-nice men stand j firm — or even twenty-nix of them — ha may continue the struggle all summer, or until the final ad journment of the Legislature, or until the half breed leaders will consent to the calling of a regular caucus. " ff '■■'.-'■• In the conference this morning Armstrong asked the Speaker to tell what he was to get fcr this base act of treachery, declaring it ought to be a big price that Would tempt a man who had stood so high to stoop so ' low, to I . betray the ' man who had created him politically. Speaker Sharpe, in reply, denied that he was indebted to Roscoe Conkling for any Ihiag but his personal friendship; that he bad always held, and was proud of. He paid a glowing tribute to Conkling, -but said that the time had come when the interest of par ty demanded that even Conkling must respect the decision of the caucus ; that if it nominated Forster for Senator, much as it would go a .-ai'iLt his inclination*, he should vote for Forster. ' When his name was called Senator Forßter said he believed it'to be the duty of every member of the. Legislature to vote in accordance with his own views of duty. He had done and would continue to do so. As a member of the Caucus Commit tee he considered it his duty to reflect the views of the majority of his party. Some members bad bound themselves not to enter a caucus on the, Senatorship, and not to vote for Mr, _ Conkling in any event. He was among the ' number, j and whatever . views others might take, be felt that he was bound to stand by his agreement. Believing that New York City ought to have a representative in the Senate, he should vote for William M. Evarts. When his name was called. Senator Halbert sharply criticised Forster's position in regard to the caucus, declaring that tbe Republican party conld not live if the views which Forster presented were generally adopted. In conclusion, Hal bert said he differed from the speaker, who,' in this hour, when victory was about to perch upon their (the stalwarts').banners, had de serted * them. . He did cot believe that the Administration men could long have held out against the appeals of those for whom he was acting. _He would stand by the caucua as an exponent of safe party guidance, and wonld vote for Roscoe Conkling. [Applause.] When his name i was called, Senator Strahan said that either those with whom he had been act ing for the past seven weeks were right, or they were wrong. He was not yet prepared to say that they were wrong. -', He stood for the will of the majority as expressed through the caucus, and he world continue to stand for that principle with his associates. The old . guard dies, but never surrenders. He would vote for Roscoe Conkling. [Applause.] When Alvord's name was called, that gentle man said that, judging from the noise that reached his ears, the throttle valve was wide open, " bat --; the , wheels were *' all ; gone.' [Laughter.] He voted for Lapham. _ When J. D. Carpenter, who . had been detained at home by sickness since the Joint Convention first met for the first time was to-day called, he voted for Lapham, amid great applause. Sisson, when his name. was called, said, "I bow to the will of the majority. I vote for Lapham." [Applause.] > • New York, July 17th.— | Tribune's Albany special says : - The failure '- to elect Lapham yesterday causes the . Garfield Re publicans considerable chagrin. ', It is gener ally felt that | with a little more effort the could have been chosen after the election " of Miller, and the contest finally disposed of. Tbe friends of Miller appealed in vain to the Joint _ Convention . to take • another ballot. The appeals were unheeded by the Conkling men and Democrats, who j voted for the ad journment and were in the " majority. Seme nf the Conkling members still hope to defeat I.i) our, and make the argument with : their associates that by ! persistently holding out for Conkling the Administration leaders .will d.iii.v RECORD in: ii 1 . screes YOU MHIiMC 133. be forced to grant a caucus, wherein some man more satisfactory to them as the suc cessor to Conkling might be chosen. Lap bam lacks only five votes of election, and the Administration men already hare promise* of sufficient votes to elect him. There prom ises to be a small attendance at the Joint Con vention to-morrow, so that the Administration 1 leaders may not deem it wise to attempt to elect anybody en that day. From present appearances Lapham will be elected on Tues day. Undoubtedly the Cockling men will make a desperate effort .to defeat him, and . they may be able to postpone hi* election until the latter part of the week. The Ad ministration leaders are determined in Lap- '*' ham's case, as in that of Miller, not to enter another caucus. The success of the policy in Miller's candidacy is prophetic of its success in that of Lapham. The .coming week may be a repetition of the last one, beginning with a sturdy resistance by the Conkling men and ending in tboir discomfiture. But the Ad ministration leaders do not anticipate such a long resistance. Miller, las U. S. Senator elect, is n ">w a man of great political influence. That - influence put forth heartily and in Lipham's interest ought to elect him, and it is evident tbat despite their brave talk the Conkling men are hopelers of defeating Lap ham, The friends of Lapham are so confi dent of his election that they are not taking any extraordinary pair.* to secure more votes. Soon after the announcement of Miller's elec tion his room was tilled with congratulating friends, and a little later members of the Leg islature began to poor in to give him a hearty clasp of the hand. All the evening the room was a scene of rejoicing. Miller bears bis new honors modestly and with composure. . Albant, July 17th.— It is very quiet at the hotels to-night, and but few members of the legislature are in the city. The Admin istration men say they hope tor the election to-morrow of Lapham. bat do not feel cer tain. They think it will be done Tuesday if not to-morrow. There is a report current that Hard and Bingham, who voted for Conkling a::d Miller yesterday, wanted Crowley instead cf Lapham, and will stand out for him. Others want Gen. Woodford. The Administration men, however, scout the idea, and insist that it i* the duty of all lie* publicans to vote for the minority caucus candidate Lapbam, . They say they cannot and wiil net now listen to a change. '. - V r T!i<- President* Hutbrr. .-...- ; ' CLEVELAND, July 17th— Mra. Eliza.

The Train Robbery-Still Farther rnr tienl.irs. .fffXf* BOCK Island (III.), Jnly*l7th.— As soon as the passengers and what few train men re mained recovered themselves the engineer steamed up and started for the city. The passengers arrived here about 11 o'clock in the morning, having been detained for roe time on account of a washout the other aide of Davenport. Among the passengers was K. L. Martin, of Kansas City, who gave the following account of tho affair : The train left Kansas City at 6:30 last evening and coLsisted of six cars, well filled with passen gers, including a sleeping car. Supper was furnished at the regular eating station, and no event teemed to excite the suspicion of passengers or train men until Winston was reached, which was at 8:30 o'clock.. At that station four rough-appearing men got on the train with handkerchiefs he'd about their face*.? - so as to partially conceal their features. The first intimation the passengers received that there was anything wrong was the cry, "All aboard '." which appeared to be the signal. At that instant the four men, as well as sev eral others who had comb frcm Kansas City and Cameron, made a rush for tbe engine ar d for the conductor, Charlie Westfall. Firir g was heard in the front cars as well as on the engine, and then the train watt put in motion at the rate of forty miles per hour, On giv ing the signal two of tho men made for the firat coach, where the conductor was stand ing. One of the men went up to Conductor Westfall, and, pointing a pistol at hie, said, "You are the man I want," and fired, the ball striking Westfall ia tbe arm, but did not prove fatal. Westfall attempted to run, and as he did so tho robber fire.' twice at him. Westfall'reached the platform, when a second robber fired a shot which killed him in stantly. The conductor fell dead on the platform. Ha ' . WU3 mt ani . in sev eral places, bat tho last that took effect m his brain, producing almost instant dcaSi. Three of the robbaw started for the engine, with tho iiteiilicn of shooting the engineer and taking possession of the engine. The engineer Seemed to apprehend thai there was danger, r.s on the approach of the trio he started back on his cnginaand'rccre'cd himself in the tender. A Stonemason by the nan-.ecf Miller came forward from the bag gaga car while the shooting w.i? in progress. The robbers mistook him for tho engineer and shot bits, the hall taking effect in his" heart. Charley ' Murray, tho express mes senger, wa3 also visited by toad of tbe robbere. He was knocked over y: the head and made to deliver the keys to his safe. The robbers ransacked the safe and secured $500 in money and $300 in valuable.-, and a Government bond of the amonnt of §I,CCO. Murray was threatened with instant death if he concealed anythirg, but was permitted to livo on informing them that all hi 3 valuables were in the safe. The brakeman on duty, w) o-:e name cannot be aecertained, as soon as he learned of tho min der of the conductor, rushed through the train and informed the paawngeta that an effort would be made to rob them. As soon as this had been accomplished the brakeman started forward, and when the robbers entered the second coach .with pistols ii. their hand* demand icg money," the brake man pulled the cord attached to the air brake, and soon after the train stopped. Tho men jumped off from the car.? end made for the woods. Mr. Martin stated that cot more ' than fifteen minntees elapsed from the time of leaving Winston until the robbers jumped frem the cars and mado themselves scarce.'
