WELL DllESSED MEN. The Latest Styles in Business and Dress. Suits. WHAT A MAN MAT SPE5D. A Complete Wardrobe tad a few , Points Xeekweu ud klrti. j. Special Correspondenoe. Niw York, April 19. I received a letter the other day from a friend who lives on second thought I won't say just where, but it is a place where little is known as to how men who wish to be considered in good form should attire themselves and ray friend wrote for information on that point. It seems that he has lately made some money, and he proposes to come to this city for awhile and is anxious not to betray by his dress while he is here tliat he is not a New Yorker. Whenever I want to know any thing about dress for myself I ask John T. Mitchell about it, and so I went to him before answering my friend's let ter. Barring: some information valuable only as specifically answering some of my friend's inquiries, I have here writ ten down what Mr. Mitchell told me, with the idea that others may be inter ested. The Cost of Style. "If your friend wishes to be a really well dressed New Yorker in appear ance, " said Mr. Mitchell, "I do not see how he can get along without expend ing at least $700, and he may easily pay out $1,000 for his outfit that is, if he has to buy 'from the ground up. ' He ought to have four suits at least besides his evening dress suit, which should have a 'Tuxedo sack' as well as a claw hammer coat; a Chesterfield overcoat, two silk hats, two derby hats" Mr. Mitchell callj thorn "darbies" "a soft traveling hat, several pairs of 6hoes, several pairs of gloves, one or two canes, shirts, neckwear, collars, cuffs, etc If he would bo sure of the fit of his clothes, he must have them made by one of the city's first class tailors, and if he does that they will cost from $75 to $100 a suit, his overcoat will stand him in from $65 to $75, and the aggregate, with out hats, shoes, gloves, canes, etc., will not be far from $500. His shoes will cost from $12 to $18 a pair; his canes will be from $8 to $15 each, etc Seven hundred dollars, ho will find, will not be a cent too much. " I need not, I am sure, explain to the reader that, although Mr. Mitchell's knowledge is always thoroughly accu rate and quite reliable, many New York ers who pass for very well dresed men indeed expend a good deal less than $700 on their clothes for a whole year, nor that, while the prices for suits quoted by Mr. Mitchell are not at all beyond the figures charged by the swellest tai lors of this town, there are very good sartorial artists hero who will make suits that, for all most of us can see, are in every way just as well made and. just as stylish for half the money, while if you happen to be of medium size and good proportions you can buy your clothes "ready made" for a quarter of the money charged by the swell tailors and still appear very well dressed. Indispensable Salts. The three suits shown in the first cut given herewith and the one at the left of the second 'No. 4) are the four that are considered by Mr. Mitchell to be in dispensable to every man who would ap pear like a well dressed New Yorker. The cutaway coat, with light trousers, shown on the central figure of the first S3 7 S Aft iVr I Y" m- II M M No. 1. No. 2. No. 3. CUTAWAYS AND FROCK. cut (No. 2) is the proper inornfttg suit among men who are quite up with the times. The long frock suit on the figure to the right (No. 3) represents full dress for afternoon wear and for most evening occasions at this season. The 6uit shown at the left of the cut (No. 1) is for use at almost any time. The sack suits shown in the second cut are for business wear. Nos. 4 and 5 are also mentioned by Mr. Mitchell as being especially de sirable. The material of No. 1 is a gray worst ed, the material of the coat and vest in No. 2 is a cheviot, and of the trousers a striped worsted. The vest is single breasted, with five bnttons. The material of No. 3 is an Oxford mixture, and the est may be cut as for No. 1 or No. 2. No. 5, a four button sack suit, is made of mixed cheviot The material of No. 4, a three button cutaway sack, is vicuna for the coat and vest and a neat check for the trousers. No. 6, a double breast ed sack suit, is made of brown fine checked cheviot. In all of these suits it will be observ ed that there is a tendency to "shape" the trousers at the bottom so as to fit rather closely at tlie ankle. In gloves subdued tan color is good form and will be for some time, gradually changing to soft browns, grays and wood colors in the summer and fall. Almost all fashionable materials are rough finished now, but there is an indication that harder goods, including twilled worsted and even broadcloth twills, will come in again before another winter passes. Derby and soft hats this spring are brown and black. They will follow the gloves in coloring and gradually change to grays and wood colors. " The general tendency m'a clotting will be toward more color and more- checks and stripes. As Mr. Mitchell puts it, "Things will by and by be more snappy. " It is still good form to wear your trousers creased, but the crease should not be too pronounced. It should not resemble a knife blade too closely. Evening Suit. There are no radical changes in even ing suits, but the man who would be quite up to date will order his dress coat to be mado with, a "peak" lapel and will have both it and the collar of the coat covered - with silk. Some dress waistcoats are made with four buttons, and without collars, and of the same material as the coat and trousers, rather than of fancy goods. The overcoat to be worn above all others is still the Chesterfield sack. Correct day dress is and will be during the summer and fall the double breasted frock and the dou- '1 m ik fV?S fTx .. Mm No. 4. No. 5. No. 6. BUSINESS SUITS. ble breasted cutaway, the trousers being interchangeable. The double breasted frock of current wear is of about the same length as last fall, but the waist is now shorter, the skirts fuller and the collar longez. Tho three button cutaway coat differs materially from last fall's only in the fact that the skirts are cut to cling close to the hips and cut away sufficiently to show one button of the vest. At a point near their full length they are rounded boldly to a very nar row bottom. The vests are single or double breasted, according to the wear er's fancy, but the single breasted vests are very much rnoro worn than the dou ble breasted, and fancy vestings are not now in nearly so much demand as they have been for Beveral seasons. Mate rials for trousers are worsted in fine and moderately fine stripes and neat checks and wool fabrics in neat designs. Business Dress. "In half dress" a term that refers to "dress for genteel business purposes" more latitude in the matter of fabric is allowed, but cutaways and frocks are tho styles. A half dress suit may be a composition of gray, or gray with fancy trousers, or of three different materials, or of any quiet "genteel" mixture, even to a very delicate stripe. The double breasted frock may have an outside breast pocket, but side flaps are not per mitted. The double breasted frock suit is now properly used as a business suit purely, but cutaways are all right and may be of fancy material, striped, check ed or plaided, with side flaps, and the number of buttons may be varied to suit the individual taste. For a very tall slim man four buttons even are allowed. All sorts of sacks are O. K. for business wear, of course. Double breasted sacks are more popular every week this spring. Patch pockets and fronts to wear open are popular, too, and pockets in nearly all sack suits are being fitted with flaps to be worn inside or out. All coats should be as thin and soft as possible. Overcoat sleeves are cut wider at the bottom than they were a year ago, and vests generally are shorter. Styles In Furnishings. In neckwear the stock has of course already got quite a foothold, but the stock of today is quite a different affair from that of the time of Beau BrummeL The stock may or may not last after the close of spring, but the tie or butterfly bow, made in white lawn or dimity or black satin for evening wear and in many patterns and colors of silks for day dress, is now considered in good form. The proper tie is made in such a way that it is almost impossible to imi tate it in ready made form, "as it de pends on that one little finishing touch of the individual for the artistic beauty which will make it a joy to the heart of the man of taste. " Both the prince knot or flowing end and the graduated two inch four-in-hand will continue to enjoy a large share of favor. Spring shirts will be chiefly made from delicate pinks, blues and hsliotrope shades, plain stripes or delicate spray or figure effects. "White collars will be worn with the fancy shirts. Evening dress shirts are and will be severely plain, showing two and sometimes three studs. J. O. B. Ellis. GoldUDigglng In Scotland. Gold digging is about to be resumed on the Scotch estates of the Duke of Sutherland The goldfields are on the banks of the River Helmsdale, and dur ing the lifetime of the late duke two ETuna ers' digging resulted in the discov ery of gold worth about $G0,000. The late duke, for some caprice or other, suddenly put a stop to the enterprise, which is now to be resumed by his suc cessor. Smallest Race of People. The inhabitants of the Andaman is lands are the smallest race of people in the world, taken as a whole. The average height of a full grown Andaman is 3 feet 11 inches and the average weight less than 70 pounds. They are very war like, and as they throw poisoned spears with marvelous accuracy it is not at all strange that travelers do not care to en counter them. A Peculiar Faith. There is a family in Oregon which has a peculiar religious faith. Each member of it is obliged to take six baths every 24 hours. No outsider is allowed to enter their dwelling. They work ev ery day for six years and rest the whole of the seventh year. They base their re ligion on the Bible and claim that all other religions are false. sm to--. 7 1 W0BKHEX ABE SHOT. They Were Trying to Kecover Socialist Documents Seized by the Polios. BurA Pesth, April 23. On Sunday a body of 300 workmen marched to the town hall of Hold-Mezo Vasharety, county of Czongrad, on Lake llodez, with the declared intention of recover ing a number of pamphlets, documents, etc., belonging to the socialists leaders of the district, which had recently been seized by the police. The authorities, warned of the inten tion of the mob, mustered a force of gendarmes at the town hall to resist the expected attack. Upon arriving in front of the town hall, the workmen were confronted by the heads of the municipal department and by the officer in command of the gen darmes. The spokesman of the mob asked for the return of the pamphlets, etc., claiming that they had been ille gally seized. The authorities ordered the workmen to disperse, warnings them that force would be used unless they abandoned their threats. The mob refused to dis perse, and the gen d'armes were ordered to charge. The' police were met by showers of stones and were driven back, a number injured. The municipal authorities called for a detachment of troops which had been held in reserve in anticipation of serious disturbance, and upon the arrival of the soldiers the gen d' armes made another attempt to disperse the mob but were again repulsed. Then the military being drawn up in front of the town hall, an other effort was made to prevail upon the mob to disperse, and they were warned that unless they did so the troops would fire upon them. The only reply of the mob was begin ning to stone the military. The soldiers were then ordered to load with blank cartridges and a volley was fired at the rioters. The latter, seeing that no one was killed or wounded, continued stoning the troops, and the order was then given to load with ball. A second volley was fired into the mob, this time in real earn est, wounding six of them severely and slightly wounding a number of bystand ers. One of the wounded men has suf fered injuries which will prove fatal. After this volley a detachment of hus sars charged the mob with drawn swords, riding down the rioters, pricking a num ber with their swords and driving them away from the neighborhood of the town hall. The hussars also rounded in sixty prisoners, who were lodged in jail, being strongly guarded. The streets are still being patroled by hussars and gendarmes, and reinforce ments are being sent to the scene of the riots, as further, trouble is expected. CAYALBY FIELD PRACTICE. Two Troops of 17. S. Cavalry Lean Port Meyer for Winchester, Va. Washington, April 23. Two troops of United States cavalry under command of Capt. Fountain have left Fort Meyer, cavalry post adjacent to Washington for Winchester, Va., for field practice. They will be out one night and will be fol lowed tomorrow by two more companies from 'Fort Meyer. The departure of the troops set afloat sundry reports that their mission was to intercept Coxey's army. The latter force is near Hagerstown, Md, while the ob jective point of the cavalry is in another direction. The men are completely equipped for active field service, the purpose being to fit them for any emer gency that might arise. The men will camp out to-night. On the march and at Winchester, they will be put through field evolutions. These overland trips to Winchester, Gettysburg and other historic battlefields near Wash ington are made every summer. WHOLESALE 1.YNCHING. Four Negroe Sung; and Pive Afore are Being Hunted With Dog. Yicksbukg. Miss., April 23. Four negroes have already paid the penalty for the brutal assassination of Manager Boyce of the Baunne plant at Madison parish, on Saturday, and it is not unlike ly that several more will have summary justice dealt out to them. Madison parish is situated in the north ern part of the state and is torn wide open today with excitement. It will be recalled that one of the negroes implicated in the assassination of Boyce was shot on Sat urday after being caught. Judge Lynch held hight carnival during the night at Tallulah. A mob gathered in front of the jail, held a conference and decided upon the guilt of three men incarcerated in jail. Then the mob went deliberately to work and with a battering ram burst in the side of the jail and forced open the door, bam Slaughter, Tom Claxton and Dave Hawkins were led out and swuug up to the balustrade of the court house until dead. The bodies were hanging there this morning. Claxton and his four pals are still in the swamp south of the railroad between Milliken'a Bend and tho river. The hunt is be:ng vigorously pressed, rut the dogs yesterday could not follow the trail owing to the cold. The river and all avenues of escape are closely guarded, and the ultimate capture of the live men is regarded as only a question of time. It seems certain that they will be lynched when they are appre hended. SMALLPOX IN THE SCHOOLS. Two of the Chicago Scliools Closed on Account of the Pest. Chicago, April 23. Smallpox has broken out an Froebel and Pickard pub lic schools in this city and they have been closed. Every effort to suppress a public state ment of this alarming condition of affairs has been made by the school authorities, but further attempts at concealment are. now considered useless or even dangerous, and the information is given out without modification, but with the assurance that, as yet, there is no reason why there should be any general fear among the people. All the children that could have possi bly been exposed have been quarantined. There is great anger among parents that they were not sooner informed. Explosion at Hiawatha. St. Joe, Ma, April 23. A special to the daily News from Haiwatha,Kas.,says: Mrs. W. F. Richardson was burned to death by gasoline explosion yesterday. She tried to fill the can without turning off the light when the explosion oc curred. She was terribly burned, not an inch of her body escaping. The Daily Stats Joukhal prints all the news. FORKING' A HOME GUARD To Be the Outcome of tbe Commonweal meeting Saturday I Ight. The meeting in the interest of the Commonweal army at the court house Saturday night was one of the largest gatherings ever held in Topeka on so short a notice. The court house was fiMed to over flowing, and hundreds of people couldn't get in. .After G-. C. Clemens had deliv ered a speech of an hour's length to the people in the court house, he went out side and mado a second speech to a crowd of several hundred people who had been held there by a speech by 3. M. Scott, of the state board of public works. The meeting was presided over by Rev. J. M. Harrington, the guide at the state house. Speeches were made by G. C. Clemens, Noah Allen, General Artz, .Brigadier General Sears, Frank Forrest, John Kadfora and others, the speech making was kept up until 11 o'clock. All the speeches were applauded fre quently, and the meeting was a success; at least that was what Mr. Clemens called it, and in numbers it was. At one time an effort was made to ad journ the meeting to a larger hall, but this was objected to by those who occu pied good seats. A motion was carried to meet next Saturday night at Repre sentative hall to hear the latest news, discuss the situation and complete the organization of the home guard as pro posed by Mr. Clemens. Mr. Clemens said there was no neces sity of marching to Washington, but he and all the other speakers urged the formation of a home guard. "Tbe story of the unemployed is grow ing and there will be developments this week which will startle the country," said G. C. Clemens today. "Coxey is almost into Washington, Kel ly add his command are on the road, and sympathizers all over the country are preparing to stand by the common wealers. "The Saturday night meeting at the court house was a demonstration of the fact that the people are intensely inter ested in this movement. Such a crowd as attended that meeting could not have been secured for any kind of a political meeting. "The plan which I suggested Saturday night for the organizations of 'bands of ten' must be carried out and will be be fore the meeting next Saturday night. "We need an organization of that kind even if we do not go to Washington. We need some kind of organization by which we can get the people together on short notice. By my plan we could send out word for a meeting and could assemble all the people of the city in a shorter time than a newspaper could call a meet ing." "It is hard to tell what the meeting next Saturday night will, be, a3 we can't tell what will happen between now and then. The meeting will be held in Rep resentative hall." Secretary Osborn when 6ee by a Jour nal, reporter, said he had not been asked for the use of the hall, and had not said he would refuse to allow the meeting to be held there. He said he supposed if the people demanded the hall for such a meeting, they ought to have it. The opening of Representative hall to any but state conventions is contrary to the law, but this law has been disregarded so often within tha past year that little attention is likely to be paid to it.

SNATCHED TUB FLAG. Exciting: Scene on Madison Street, Chica go, Dnrlog a Parade. Chicago, April 23. At attempt was made to bear the British Union Jack from the hands of Color Sergeant Lay cock as he bore it at the head of the di vision of Uniformed Knights of the or der of Sons of St. George, as they were on their annual march to the church of the Epiphany in celebration of St. George's day, Sunday. As the column reached Ashland avenue and Madison streets, a stout built Irish man dashed out from the crowd, seized the Union Jack with both hands and made a desperate effort to drag it from the hands of the sergeant. The color bearer clung tightly to the flagstaff, and on command of Lieu tenant Ward, the color escort quickly assembled about the threat ened standard. The enemy, baffled in his attempt to drag down the flag, stepped back a few steps and hurled a missile at it which tore its folds. He then quickly disappeared in the crowd. All this was done in a moment, before any except those of the color squad knew of any trouble. As soon as its was ascer tained, a halt was made, but the Irish man could not be found and the march was resumed. JESSE SELIGMAN DEAD. The 'ew York Hanker Iies Almoit Upon His Arrival In California.
