Our Shoe stock was never
in better shape as regards
variety, grade, quality or price
than now. If you want in
formation only we'll tell you
what we know about shoes
with the greatest pleasure and
you won't get tripped up on
what we tell you. Then when
you're ready to buy you will
know all you need to know
about the make and the chances
with the various goods before
you. Nothing like choosing
intelligently. We.don't want
any customer in the dark.
If you are in search ol a
cheap shoe, good in quality,but
low in price, we can show you
all styles of ladies' American
Kid Shoes from $1.50 up. A
large lot of this variety are
now displayed which we are
selling at bargains at $1.50, the
regular prices of which are
$2 50 and $3.00. As we have
only a limited number ol these
bargain shoes an early selection
is advised.
0£0. D. CLELAND.
In Men's Shoes much can
be said. The present genteel
style is the wide toe, ot which
we're selling large numbers, is
particularly ueat. Strange that
it should be so hard to get the
young men out of the habit of
wearing the narrow toed Jioes
when they are virtually out ot
style. Bannister's shoes are
all made on the wide toe last.
They are the finest ready-made
shoe in the market and give
entire satisfaction. Stacy,
Adams & Co.'s shoes are also
much sought aller on account
ot their cheapness combined
with their really good quality.

Boy/' Mr. Wilson's horse, was one ol the
objects of interest* from our town. Much
may be said both for and agaiust horse rac
ing, but where a horse belonging to any lo
cality contcits for a prize all frort bis
neighborhood, regardless of their opinion
about the nfbrallty of the thing, have a feel
ing that they would like their horse to win.
Judging from the long trains and the
crowds of people on them our railroad
agera will all feel a deep interest In agricul
tural fairs.
The improvements of our tonn arc still
going on. Pusey Pemberton is about put
ting up an addition to big already large
buildings used as machine and blacksmith
shops. Mr. E. R. Wilson Is preparing
drafts of great improvements to be made
his country residence Just, outside the
limits. William Dean has started digging
cellar and well for a* new house, the first
one on the lots lately sold at public sale,
which no doubt will be the forerunner
many more in the same locality. He
done grading the track for a new railroad
siding off the Pomeroy and Newark railroad,
which now connects with the P., W. A B.
R. R. If our town had a few
like him,who were not afraid when they got
a dollar to let it breathe the free atmosphere,
they might breed more dollars and be of
some good to their fellow-citizens. But the
reverse is tbe case with most of our moneyed
men. When they get hold of a dollar tney
seize it with such a grip that in most
all the life is taken out of ft. When this
Dot the case they are quite willing to lend
them to some hard working, industrious
man, at a rate any where between 6 and 12
per cent, just as the borrower is willing to
bleed. Take the Dean Woolen Co., the
Newark Brick Manufacturing Co., and
Dean's own individual enterprises for the
last few years, out of our town, and
would be almost like taking the heart out
of it. The fountain ol its life blood would
be Vone.
■a o
more men
ere has been a report In town during
the last week that Mr. Dean had been
turned-out < f court in regard to his getting
a new commission on hU land which the
B. A P. R. R. passes over, and a considér
able amount of chucklinghas been indulged
In, not by bis friends only but by those Vho
pretend to be so. Time will tell what will
be done. He at least does not seem to be at
ail discouraged. Those who started the re
port no doubt wished it to be so.
The railroad company are fast pushing
their work to completion, widen no doubt,
when finished and in operation, will be
great benefit to the town, aHd everyone
should lend it a helping hand. So say all who
have no sacrifices to make and who have
large estates in tho Immediate vicinity of
the town that are to be enhanced In value
by its construstlou.
The business ot our town looks to be in
prosperous condition, all our merchants ap
pearing to be fully occupied, and as for
work, our people never had
under way at one time in the last 30 years.
Even our local newspaper has awakened up
under its new proprietors, who havo lots of
energy and are not afraid to use it. It has
got out of its old fogy ruts aud Is bound to
be what it wa3 under the administration of
its lamented proprietor, Eslifig, oue ot the
leading local papers of the State.
Talking of newspapers, one of your Wil
mington dailies had an editorial Saturday
night on ''Waste," in which a most lament
able picture was drawn and an attempt made
to shuttle tho cause on the young men oi
the country towns. It is really surprising
that with a paper claiming such a high
moral standard as the one rcfeired to is not
able to havo an Influence on the city of
Wilmington for the bettering of its people.
Yet it one half of what it Eays about the
crowds of foolish young girls aud the reel
ing crowds ol foolish young men and the
gangs of boys and
more work
varying in age from
16 to 40 who arc all of them more or less
under the influence oi liquor, is true, it
looks to your correspondent that the opera
tions of that paper arc somewhat like the
"blind leading tbe blind" and that unless
something soon intervenes they will all fall
in the ditch together,
that fouls its own nest,
position in which the
has placed itself? this paper
been long enough In existence, if it had any
moral Influence for the bettering the condi
tion of the people of Wilmington, to long
before this time have brought thtfm up out
of the miserai le, drunken rowdy, worthless
condition which it represents them to be in.
It claims to be a teacher of morality and if
what we see is the results of Its teachings
were I a citizen of Wilmington, I would say,
"good Lord, deliver us from all such in
structors." We also have a class of men
In our locality who are not probably all they
should be, that is the Italian railroad
laborers, yet judging by what is said in
gard to them they are probably '«more sinned
against than sinning." They cannot speak
and understand our language, and they
doubt have been imposed upon, which
caqsed them to resent the Imposition and
then those whose duty it is to see that jus
tice is done to all are the very ones wht)
have imposed upon these persons who are
not able to make known the cause of their
acting as they have. In most cases men are
not so corrupt that they violate law from
pure devilment, but there generally is some
injustice practiced upon them, which causes
the rebellious spirit to be developed. No
good citizen would for a moment tolerate
any such imposition upon defenceless per
sons like these Italians.

Cincinnati, Oct. 8.— The scenes of pre
paration for to-morrow's contest were
beyond precedent in Cincinnati. To-day
boys were to be seen on the crowded streets
handing out electioneering circulars
tickets to passers-by, and the sidewalks
were covered with documents which the re
ceplents didn't wish to carry home. • In the
more quiet streets there were women with
second amendment circulars distributing
them to gentlemen passing. The Methodist
mmisters at their weekly meeting to-day
made the second amendment a topic. They
state that all tho Methodists in the city will
be at the polls to-morrow to hold tickets for
all three parties impartially and work not
for any candidate but for the prohibition
At the headquarters of the Executive
Committee this afternoon there
were Barg
ing throngs of ward workers receiving in
structions and supplies of tickets. The col
ored voter was to be found at the head
quarters of both parties. lathing else is
talked of on tbe streets or elsewhere to
night and a vast number of voters have
their tickets already prepared and folded In
their vest pockets ready for use.
Judge Foraker and Judge Hoadly live in
the same ward and in the same precinct.
Foraker states that the Republicans can
carryithe Slate with Hamilton county giving
Hoadly 10,000. He says that 8chumacker,
the Prohibition candidate, will not get more
than 5,000 votes.
Bona-fide betting Is rare. A few extrava
gant bets have been mado by persons who
have been careful to hedge. Estimates on
Hamilton county put Hoadly's majority at
from 2,000 to 5,000. ' Republicans concede
2.000, and Democrats claim 5,000 and even
If the vote in the counties of Ohio should
remain relatively about the same as at last

stand at least 55 Democrats to 50 Republi

The temperance women will be out to
iTOW distributing tickets and documents
on tho streets away from the polls, and that
will be the sum total of their work in Cin
cinnati. Elsewhere In Ohio they will be at
the polls.
The followinsr dispatches wore sent to the
editor of The World last night:
Columbus, O., Oct. 8.—2»o the Editor of
The World: 1 think all indications
the belief that Hoadly will be elected ty 15,
000 majority. The popular breeze in his
favor Increases hourly. The second amend
ment will be defeated. It will bring
out a large vote, but will cut the
Republican vote proper, iu addition to
the conceded solid Germau deflection. That
the Legislature will be Democratic is very
certain. Chairman Bargar claims 17,000
majority. The Republican managers pri
vately confess the result dubious.
John G. Thompson.
To the Editor of The World: Mr. 1 lassa u
rek is in Europe. He probably knows
much about the result of the election as
Editor of The Volknblatt .
To the Editor of The World: The fight in
this State is very close, and both sides claim
the Legislature. I believe the Legislature
will be Democratic. J. R. McLean,
Editor Enquirer .
To the Editor of The World: * The indica
tions are that Foraker will be elected Gov
ernor and a Republican Legislature. A
mixed result may be expected from tho
three tickets In this county. The proba
bility is that there will be no whole ticket
elected here, and that there will not be a
heavy majority for cither State ticket In
Cincinnati. A week ago many thought the
prohibitory amendment would be carried.
It will not. So that tho exces*
uncertain the vote from the prohibitory
State ticket and may affect the German Re
publican vote, and this may possibly give
the Democrats the Legislature, though I
think not. I do not Lelieve there can bo
any element of uncertainty that can de
velop in the defeat of Foraker. The ag
gregate vote will be very large.
