That is. until we take
account ot stock, we
shall not have much to
say in advertisements.
We have quantities of
new goods bought to
arrive early in March
borne are coming innow,
for instance the new
wash fabrics, Ginghams,
Seersuckers, Indigo
Cambrics, &c; but in
the meantime our chief
aim is to reduce stocky
and to that end there is
only one way that we
know of, namely, mak
ing things cheap enough
You may not want a
winter dress at this late
part of the season if
you do, you can buy the
material now cheap
enough in all conscience
but how about Silks?
Black Silk is never out
of season, and the time
for Summer Silks is
coming. And yet just
on these two articles at
the present moment you
will find unprecedented
prices in our store un
precedented is just the
word prices never be
fore seen on the same
quality of goods.
Never mind why we
are selling these goods
now in such away. We
have reasons that are
cogent enough to our
selves, and for you
why, if you get the
goods at three-fourths
to two-thirds of value
it's all pure saving. Our
competitors arc worried,
not to know why, but
how we can sell Silks
in that way. Well, we
arc not under any obli
gation to explain, and if
you get Silk so cheap
you needn't puzzle over
the reason.
By the way, just one
word in anticipation of
first week in March.
We are "laying the
pipes" conspiring with
a large maker of Ladies'
White Underwear for a
great dynamite explo
sion, (figuratively) i n

Saturday, February SI, 1885.
Much was expected of the "industrial re
muneration conference" which met in Lon
don recently. Thia conference was called in
order that labor and capital might hare an
opportunity to tell each other what reforms
were needed so that both might be . peaceful
and prosperous. There was a great deal of
talk, but nothing was settled. The confer
ence considered this interesting and easy
conundrum: "Has the increase in the pro
ducts of industry within the last hundred
years tended most to the benefit of the em
ployers or to that of the working classes
whether artisans, laborers or others and in
what proportion in any given period?" It is
not surprising that this question remains a
question, even after being struggled with by
an industrial remunerative conference.
The London Economist, in commenting
upon the discussion of this question, very
correctly says that what are needed in order
to decide the case between capital and labor
are facts and figures, not theories woven out
of meditations on the rights of man. And it
also seems to be right in saying: There can
be very little doubt that in recent years it is
the capitalist rather than the laborer who
has suffered from the prevailing industrial
depression. In many branches of industry
manufacturing profits have approached to
the vanishing point, and in others business
has been carried on at anactnal loss. Yet.
the work of production has not ceased. La
bor has gone on earning a fair subsistence,
while capital has been yielding very scant
returns, and it is upon the capitalists, more-'
over, that the great part of the loss which
has resulted from the heavy decline in
the prices of commodities a decline from
which the working classes have enormously
benefited has fallen. Much was said at the
conference about the advantages 1 of profit
sharing; bat had our working classes'' of
late had to depend for their living upon a
share in the profits of the business in which
they are engaged, many of them who have
been living in moderate comfort would have
been at starvation's door.
It is perhaps well enough to have indus
trial remunerative conferences, but it is not
probable that thousands of such conferences
would make much impression npon the
great problems that confront labor and capi
tal. The Boston Advertiser hits the nail on
the head when it says: No division of the
proceeds of the world's industry will ever be
deemed just, by both parties, so long as the
laborer is not himself in some degree a capi
talist, and the capitalist himself in some
sense a laborer. To lock np these two classis
together in a conference and ask them to set
tle their differences, can scarcely be called
absnrd, for it is merely doing oi a small
scale what civilization is doing for all the
world about us. The absurdity lies in sup
posing that any discovery of a method of
doing universal justice could be made by
such an assemblage. If all the world
in all time has failed to find
such a method, it is certain that prejudiced
and antagonistic delegates cannot with jus
tice be expected to find it.
A novel temperance movement has been
begun in a Georgia town, where the liquor
dealers intend to "boycott" a large number
of men who drink to excess, each dealer to
forfeit fifty dollars if he sells to any man on

Hometime the world may know something
about the population of China. Tha latest
information concerning the matter comes
from Sir Richard Temple, late governor of

Virginia has k law, panned last yoar, for
bidding any juJ,, auparlutendant of
auhools, manager or employe of any State
nxvlum or institution of learning to take any
autWe port in politic, even to the extent of
trying to persuade any voter to vote for or
against any eandtdate. Under this act
county superintendent of schools who, made
a political speech last full was convioted aud
sentenced to pay a fine of fifty dollars and
forfeit his office. But the State Court of
Appeals has reversed the judgment, holding
the si atute to be unconstitutional as hostile
to the right of freedom of speech and of po
litical action.
A bill introduced in the Missouri legisla
ture proposes that the State shall publish
and furnish a uniform system of school text
books. It establishes a publishing board
consisting of the State school superintendent,
the president of the State university and the
presidents of the three State normal schools,
whose duty it shall be to compile or adopt a
series of text books to be used in the com
mon schools, comprising the usual branches
of education in such schools, and to cause to
be printed the necessary supplies which are
to be distributed for a period of six months
free of cost and at prime cost thereafter, pro
vided that any merchant keeping such books
for sale may charge a profit of not more than
ten per cent, upon such cost price.
The foreign contract labor bill which has
passed the Senate forbids in general the im
portation by anyone, either person or corpo
ration, of alien labor npon a contract or
agreement, express or implied, to perform
labor or service in this country. Such con
tracts ore made void, and they subject the
contractors to forfeiture of $1,000 for each
offense. Ship-masters are also made liable,
bat the bill does not apply to persons tem
porarily residing in this country contracting
for service in private or official capacity, nor
to the importation of skilled laborers to la
bor "in any new industry not at present es
tablished in the United States," nor to pro
fessional actors, artists, lecturers or ' singers,
nor to persons employed as domestic ser
vants. Finally it does not apply to the case
of a person assisting a relative or friend to
emigrate to this country. It is to be 'hoped
that the bill will become a law, for American
labor needs protection.
A prosecution of four medical men, some
of the moat eminent in Paris, has turned out
badly for the prosecutor. The well known
Dr. Trelet ef the Faculty of Medioine, Dr.
Delens, surgeon of St. Antoine hospital, and
Bra. Fiogy, Bucio and nephew were arraigned
at the bar of the Correctional Police, charged
by one Bouyer, himself a docter, but who
had never practised and who edited a finan
cial journal, with having against his will per
formed upon him ' painful and deleterious
operations; moreover, that they had forcibly
and maliciously removed him from his lodg
ings to an asylum. The accused doctors hod
attended the plaintiff gratis on the assump
tion that he was a professional brother, that
he had a very dangerous wound, accidentally
inflicted by a rusty nail, that they applied
setons to draw off purulent matter and that
when they removed the patient to an asylum
because his room was pestilential he was de
lirious and offered no opposition. The fonr
doctors were acquitted, and the court award
ed 3,000 francs damages to each against the
plaintiff for a malicious prosecution.
The reports prepared iij the French gov
ernment of the imports and exports for the
last two years show a decided decline in the
volume of trade in the year that has just
passed, when compared with its predecessor.
There has been a falling off both in the ex
port and the import trade more particularly
in the latter. So far as the decline in the
importation of food supply is concerned, it
may be attributed to the improved agricul
tural condition of the country; but a part of
this loss must also be laid to the diminution
in the ability of the population to purchase
supplies of this kind. There has also been
quite a falling off in the import of raw
materials, which must be attributed to a con
traction in the manufacturing business, since
articles of this kind are imported solely for
the use that can be mode of them in the
home factories. The decrease in this respect
is about balanced by the decline in the vol
ume of exported manufactures, showing that
the demand for French wares, even with the
reduction in the rates of wages that has of
late taken place, is decidedly less than it was
a year ago.
The police authorities of Boston declared
that all gambling houses in the city were
closed, but an impertinent reporter has un
dertaken to show them and the public that
this is not the cose. He had no difficulty in
finding a "den" in Spring Lane, a few doors
from Washington street, and not a quarter of
a mile from the City Hall. His first visit
was made early in the evening and the jan
itor, peering from the wicket of the
strongly-made door as a guard against unde
sired visitors, admitted him without ques
tion. He found many boys and young men
playing roulette and other games of chance.
The next day he visited the same place by
daylight, and found the games going on
briskly and sixty-nine persons present. He
gives the name of the gambler who is under
stood to be the manager of the place, the
street number of the building and the name
of its owner as it appears on the assessors'
books. A person well acquainted with such
places told the reporter that this one is the
most mischievous in Boston, because,
being so near their places of employment, it
attracts so many young men, clerks, sales
men, telegraph operators and others, whose
morals are debauched by the vice of gambling
and the associations of the place, and they
are tempted to dishonesty to retrieve their
A Flan For Its Preservation Tne
Views or "Viator" on This Publlo
To the Editor of the Journal and Cocmek:
The question of the preservation or de
struction of the old State House, which led
to so active a discussion among our citizens a
year or more since, has again been revived in
an indirect form by the new question, Can
we find worthy uses and purposes to which
this venerable building can be devoted? I
desire to contribute a few thoughts to the
consideration of this question.
1. The building is of very great size, con
taining many halls and apartments, and is of
immense strength and solidity, of such solid
materials, indeed, that it would oost thou
sands of dollars to pull it down and remove
it, as is shown by the fact that it cost $600
to cut a doorway ten feet square between two
2. Such a building could not now be erect
ed for less than one hundred thousand dol
lars. 8. Is it on economical polity for the city
of New Haven in such times as these to pull
down a building of so great size, of so great
cost to reproduce and oapable of being used
for so many worthy and varied objects?
4: There are already four uses t which
portions of the building are devoted.
First. The museum of industrial art, which
only needs the uo-operatlon of our citizens to
be made of great benefit to the city. The
South Kensington museum In London, whose
object is the same, has lieen worth many
millions to British manufactures and trade
and art.
Hecond. The Historical society and Its col

the city a considerable amount in rent.
But two new and important uses are now
under discussion.
1. That of a public library. The city has
the offer from some of its citizens of the be
ginning and foundation of a public library,
not years hence when times are better, but
now, to-morrow, to-day, to be at once placed
in this building in halls excellently adapted
to it, and ready at once for large growth and
abundant usefulness. This is the true way
to begin a library; to begin with books and
not with erecting a costly building, which
has ruined and wrecked the hopes of many
a disappointed community.
2. The Grand Army of tha Republic de
sires the use of the old Representatives' hall.
What worthier use con there be for that
portion of the building than this? As the
Historical society are the conservators of our
history, so the Grand Army of the Republic
are the conservators of the national patri

Sosiety of the Cincinnati was in the days of

their reward, their gift to us. We can never

Denver, Col., Feb. 14.
To the Editor of the Journal and Courier:
Colorado is the youngest child of the great
family of the United States; and though
often called the Centennial State, does not
wish it to be inferred that she is a centuiy
old. In fact, it is less than a quarter of
that period since the first shanties were erect
ed on the banks of Cherry Creek, where now
the massive walls of the City Hall of its capi
tal and chief city stand. Nor were those
frail temporary shelters standing there alone;
interspread among them were the wigwams
of the aborigines. The Indian tribes of that
region, the Arrapahoes, the Cheyenues, the
Sioux and others, made the spot a common
camping ground, where now the busy, beau
tiful "Queen City of the Plains," with her
seventy thousand people, instead of savage
life and customs, exhibits all tne business
activity, the wealth, the comforts and refine
ment found in the cities of the Eastern
It was as late as the year 1864 that, on account
of the threatening hostility of the savage
tribes, the people were kept in constant ap
prehension of attack and massacre. On one
occasion, a midnight alarm was raised by a
report that a large band of the redskins were
approaching, determined to exterminate the
entire settlement of pale faces. The cruel
murder of the Hungate family, father, mother
and children, but a little while before, just
on the outskirts of the settlement, was
enough to strain the nerves of the people to
the highest tension, and the slightest unusual
movement was sufficient to create a panic.
The dashing of a man on horseback through
the streets, crying out in the: darkness tliut
the Indians were murdering the neighboring
ranchmen, were driving off the stock, and
would soon attack the town, was enough to
strike terror into every heart. The scene
that immediately followed was indescribable.
Men.- women and children, terror-stricken,
rushing from their beds through the streets
with one accord, pressed forward to the cen
tral part of the town where they hoped to
find protection. The spot where they as
sembled was on what is now Lawrence
street near Cherry Creek. After making
elaborate preparations for the defense of the
town, squads of armed men were sent out as
scouts over the surrounding country, when
they discovered that the alarm had been
created by the camping of a train of Mexican
freighters, for the night, about hlteen miles
from Denver.
It seems incredible to anyone looking out
upon the city, as it is to-day, and over the
cultivated farms'up and down the Platte val
ley, and the railroads from all parts of the
compass conveieing towards the city as a
central point, that such an event has hap
pened within a score ot years. I lien tne
various tribes of Indians hunted and roamed
over the plains and among the mountains
with perfect freedom; now the Indian and.
buffalojare rarely seen except on exhibition
in a menagerie.
The territorial extent of Colorado is large.
The dimensions are a parallelogram, three
hundred and ninety (390) by two hundred
and seventy (270) miles, containing an area
of about one hundred and five thousand (105,
000) square miles. This is equal to more
than twice the area of the Empire State,
riew York; to more than twenty onei,.Jl)
States like Connecticut; and over oue hun
dred (100) States like. Rhode Island. Many
of the counties are larger than some States.
Weld county is lull long and VU miles wide;
its area is 10,500 square miles, or more than
twice as great as the State of Connecticut,
and is equal to ten States like Rhode Island.
Bent county in the southeastern part of the
Sjtate has a greater area than the btate ot
The Rocky Mountain range runs north and
sonth through the middle of the State, occu
pying a breadth of fifty to one hundred
miles, spurs and peaks, or which many are
covered with snow throughout the year. In
terspersed among these ranges are many
beautiful valleys or elevated basins, common
ly called parks, which have become very at
tractive as summer resorts for invalids and
others who desire to escape from the sultry
heat of less elevated regions. The attrac
tions of these parks are greatly increased by
hot springs, of which the water is claimed to
be a specific for all rheumatic affections, and
mineral springs furnishing medicinal waters
for a great variety of diseases.
Colorado springs, a misnomer, since there
are no springs there, is a lovely village of
some four thousand inhabitants, just without
the "foot-hills" m El Paso county, about six
miles east of Manitou, where the springs are
found. The curative etucieucy ol the waters
at Manitou has long been known, even by the
Indians, and the town is crowded every sum
mer with visitors who make it a resort for
pleasure or for the restoration of health.
Manitou is the "Saratoga" of Colorado. Sev
eral large hotels have been erected there for
the accommodation of guests. The drive bo
tween Colorado Springs and Munitou is de
lightful, especially if one takes in the "Gar
den of the Gods," making the distance but a
mile or so farther than by the direst road.
Idaho Springs is an old and popular resort.
about thirty-eight miles west of Denver on
the Central railroad. Only hot soda and sul-
ihur spring for bathing are found here.
Poncho Springs have recently attracted at
tention, and are regarded by many as quite
equal to the famous Arkansas hot springs in
their curative qualities. Alttiongn some u
miles southwest of Denver, and far into the
mountains, the place is quite easily reached
by railroad, and it is said that hotel accom
modations are soon to be provided for visi
tors. Hut of MiirliiLra it ninv be said, an of
other treasure-trove in this land which holds
untold millions of buried wealth in various
forms, the beginning of development has
been scarcely made.

Nor is the genial atmosphere tho only gift
of these lofty mountain peaks and ranges.

of a mile above the sea-level, out of the
reach of the humid, fog-producing, chilling

cheerfulness, good nature and physical health
that stakes it a joy "to live and move and

husband abuse you?" "Oh, I have a better
reason than that. I have mads the acquain
tance of a much better looking man, who is
ten years younger, and has lots of money,
who wants to marry me as soon as I can get
a divorce. I don't see how I could have any

"Choice orchestra chairs right down in

the doctor's bald head. "Yer can't get any
thing at the box office," he continued, as the

"He's going fast," said the doctor, "going
fast." "Yes," said the dying speculator,
"they're going off like hot eakes. Nearly all
the best places gone long ago.
You can't get anything at
the window now. Come, young feller, here's
a chance to take your lady in and give her
an opportunity to see the show. Tickets, sir,
right down in front. Best seats in the
house!" Then he fell asleep again, and the
night wore on. It was nearly midnight when
he awoke to find the doctor gone, and only
two or three of his old companions bending
over him. "Only four left," he whispered
softly: "I must turn 'em in at the box-office,
I guess." He turned wearily on the pillow
and so fell asleep babbling of green coupons.
Tho Latest Fashions.
' From the New York Times.
Full skirts with straight breadths are again
worn. This fashion is much simpler than
narrow skirts, as it does not require any spe
cial draping or trimming. Waists are the
most important part of these dresses and must
be cut to perfection. Any slight defect in
the make may be overlooked in an elaborate
ly trimmed suit, but with these plain dresses
this is not to be thought of. Although these
skirts form the basis of many toilets, draped,
plaited and puffed skirts are also to be seen.
As at most entertainments given at pres
ent, the rooms are lighted even in the day
time, toilets are made witha view to produ
cing a pleasing effect when beheld by gaslight.
It is for this reason that so much steel, gold,
and silver is worked into the trimmings aud
materials. Gold, silver and steel tissues serve
for pointed waists for wear with velvet and
brocade skirts. A very beautiful effect is ob
tained by combining steel tissue with dark
blue velvet. The pointed waist is high in
the back of the neck, and opens in a square
in front. J. he steel tissue forms the waist,
and large revers over the blue velvet train.
On the border of the velvet skirt is a light
steel embroidery. In front of the apron is a
bird worked in several colors, witn-pinK and
light blue predominating, and various f hades
of gray, the whole being intermixed with
steel. On the underskirt is a large ruching
worked with steel. Around the square of
the waist is the same lace ruching and a gar
land of tmX light pink roses. The elbow
sleeves have the same trimming. Another
toilet in this style is of white brocade with
silver tissue. The satin skirt is covered with
white gauze arranged in flat plaits fastened
down to the lower part of the dress, where it
opens and forms a toll trimming over a rnch
ing of silver lace. The white brocade train
is added to the back. The front of the waist
forms a long point and has a silver plastron.
The low neek is surrounded by lace worked
with silver. Another novel combination is a
toilet of gold and peacock blue velvet or
piusu. Ajigui suaues are couiuiueu witu very
dark ones tor evening dresses, f or instance,
a blue and salmon toilet has a skirt of salmon
velvet with the lower border falling against
a ruching in the same shade. The redingote
skirt of dark blue brocade opens over the vel
vet skirt. Tho square court mantle train is
of plain dark blue velvet, surrounded by a
bias band formed of three flat plaits of salmon-colored
velvet. The low-necked blue
velvet waist has a brocade plastron. The
plastron is so arranged that it leaves the
waist in the shape of a Spanish corsage.
Around the low neck are flesh-colored roses
to harmonize with the velvet. The sleeves
are formed by the roses around the nock,
with a piece of salmon-colored lace falling
ments. The cloak for wear over this toilet
is of brownish green satin covered with old
gold "mousseline canvas." It is trimmed
with marabout plumes in the color of the sat
in. Any hue of satin can serve for this
clouk, and the canvas will have an equally
good effect. The marabout plumes may also
be replaced by fur trimmings. Bands of fur
are used on Parisian evening toilets. A dark
fur is generally selected for this purpose, to
make a contrast with the light materials on
which it is sewed. Some drosses are trim
med with embroidered lawn. The designs
are usually large flowers. The lawn forms
aprons and quille trimmings with garlands of
this work ou the lower part of the goods.
Some pink faille toilets are covered with a
tissue like crepe de Chine, with floral era
broidery in twist silk. This crape is grace
fully draped over the fuille skirt. Around
the borders of the dress aro bands of pink
marabout, which .are taken np the sides to
form qtiillns. The waist Is very low in the
neck. Around the basque is a narrow band
of marabout. The elbow sleeve are cut iu
points in the bend of the arm. The points
are joined under small bows. Down the
front'of the waist are many satin loope cut
tho same length and placed very close to
gether. Among some very odd funuy dresses

A Venetian domino costume is of black
and red satin. The skirt is of white plaited
lace. The black satin domino is made like a
blouse, and falls all the way down in full
lengthwise plaits. It opens on the left side
and has red satin revers. A narrow satin
fold comes from the inside of the border of
the skirt. The very long black satin train is
lined with red satin. A red silk .cord and
tassels is tied around the body below the
waist. The large juive sleeve reaches to the
lower part of the skirt and is open from the
shoulder all the way down the outside. It is
lined with red satin.
A novel trimming for collars and ouffs con
sists of silver, gilt, steel, or jet galloon, with
a fold of colored satin coming from beneath.
This is placed around the collars and cuffs.
Sometimes the satin fold is replaced by a nar
row ostrich feather trimming. Some dark
blue velvet and worsted suits have this trim
ming of galloon combining gold and steel
with folds of old gold or pink satin. These
galloons are a great addition to simple toilets.
The small pieces coming from under these
must neither be gathered nor plaited ; they
always consist of a fold placed fiat to the in
side and showing very little on the outside,
forming only a fine line, to relieve the dark
effect of a dress. Flaitings and rnchings are
not as much worn as they have been; there
is a tendenoy to replace them by flat collars
and cuffs. There are also to be seen hand
some fine batiste collars which turn over the
straight collars of the dresses. These are

trimmings so mnch worn of late.
There are also some changes to be noted in
children's suits. The Russian blouse is now
ail the rage in Paris. Embroidered dresses,
with the skirt formed of a single flounce, are
reserved for very yonng children. For older
ones a kind of blouse buttoning straight down
the left side and a skirt which forms a deep
row of gathers below the waist is substituted
for them. Around the skirt is a row of gal
loon. It is either of plain wool or shot with
gold or f ilver. The buttons on the blouse
are very small. The most suitable overgar
ment for wear with this dress is a coat with
straight fronts crossed on the left side and
closing by means of a single row of buttons.
The back is cut into the figure and falls be
low the waist in a full-gathered skirt. A
small collar may be added to the garment,
which is not sewed to it, and may be worn
or not at pleasure. It buttons on the left
side. Fashionable children's hats are the
felt "chapelier" shape and large Greenaway
capotes. Little boys aged from five years
np wear felt hats with soft crowns and
straight brims, trimmed with wide ribbed
galloon. Young children have an assortment
of shapes, including Hungarian ami fur-caps
and sailor hats.
