Kansas City. Sowing Machines, 4 Often we have been Importuned to deal in Sewing Machines and we hare steadfastly refused because we could not buy and sell Sewing1 Machines as we do Dry Goods and therefore could not in any way benefit our customers. Time was when patents forbade the Belling1 at retail of Sewing Machines on the same basis as we sell Dry Goods, or Carpets, or Books, or Shoes, or almost any other merchandise. The bask; and imjjortant patents hare expired. The field is now open to anyone. The wall of exclusiveness has tumbled down, txrept the cumbrous, coatly tcay of telling and why shouldn't that go to After much investigation we took the best machine that could be made by picking' from all the goodness of other machines and called it "O. R. S." Taken all in all we count it the best Sewing1 Machine on the market and these are the prices: No. 3 Made to sell for 555, our price, $20. No. 5 Made to sell for SCO, our price, $22.50. No. 7 Made to sell for $65, our price, $25. Each machine is perfect and com plete; oak, bent woodwork case. Working- parts exactly the same in every particular. Self Setting- Needles. Self Threading Shuttle, Automatic Bobbin Winder, complete attachments. Just think what a revolution these prices mean and in these times what a saving- to you. TIow can we make these little prices? Easy enough. We buy and sell sewing machines as xcs buy and sill dry goods. And We don't Employ canvassers and pay them half the selling price for getting the busi ness. . . We don't Sell on installments and thus lose a part of the price of some machines. We don't Send out instructors to give lessons ai ine customer s nonse instructions are given at the store. We don't Do the business in a reckless and ex pensive way and make the customer stand the extra cost. Get on a train and come " to the store and see this, the latest addition to our stock. You can order these machines throu' our Mail Order Department.' Send for an illustrated and descrip tive circular of these machines. APPEAL SOT SUSTAINED. Southern Presbyterians Take Final Art Ion in the Mean Case. Nashyij.t.e, Tenn., May 26. In the general assembly of the Southern Presbyterian church yesterday, the Means case was taken up and argu ment was resumed by Dr. Flynn. He argued that the use of the telephone on Sunday was a necessity, and the result of its use was to lessen Sunday labor. His speech was a strong pres entation of the synod's position. Dr. Lripcr followed and spoke in favor of enforcing the law as it stood, an-1 not construe laws to tit every case. This was not a question of what the law should be, but what it was. If Miss Means' work was a necessity she should not be dis ciplined, if it was not she should be. The question was, iid the synod do right? He argued that the session and Presbytery did right. Then the vole wa-j taken, and each member had two minutes to explain his vote and express his view. The roll call began at 4:20 and closed at 5:40. The result was, not to sustain the appeal from the synod, 77; to sustain, 43; to sus tain in part, 8. A Bis; Coal Deal. Columbcs, Kan., May 2.

Bradstreet's Report of the Bus iness Situation, Says It Is the Dullest for Twenty Years. LITTLE TO ENCOURAGE The Shipments of Wheat Have Fallen Off Largely. New Yobk, May 26. Bradstreet's Trade Review says: "The unfavor able Conditions prevailing in com mercial and industrial circles throughout the country,, together with the prospect for no material improvement during the sum mer, marks the present season as probably the dullest relatively for twenty years. At no time since panic and business depression mani fested themselves last year have re ports as to the volume of sales of merchandise, the manufacture of staple (roods and the indisposition of merchants generally to buy except for absolutely immediate wants, been so pronounced and so general through out the country as during the past few weeks. "Superficial examination of busi ness conditions leading to unwar ranted optimistic conclusions as to the nearby future of trade have not been wanting; but, as a matter of fact, based on comprehensive and careful examination, the next few months promise a continuance, if not an intensif vine-, of existing- conditions of extreme dullness and depression. "Quite unfavorable advices come from Pittsburg-, where there are numerous shut-downs, involving large numbers of men. The total number of industrial employes idle as a result of coal scarcity is placed at 35,O00,and the total idle number on account 01 Etrike, which now appears likely to fail, is 210,000. In other industrial lines 25,000 men are reported idle as a result of strikes, making the total number now idle 235,000. An encour aging industrial feature is the prob able settlement of next season's iron and steel wa?e scale without a strike. "Exports of wheat (flour included). both coasts, United States and Canada, this week equal 2.310.000 bushels, against 2,420,000 bushels last week, 3,106,000 bushels a year ago 2,280,000 bushels two years ago and 2,342,000 bushels three years ago. The price movement as to staples continues to see-saw cotton, wheat, corn and oats all reacting slightly from former de pressions, while, wool, sug-ar, lard, coffee and live' stock all show de clines."

Democratic Tariff Managers Trying to Hasten Action. WASHrsGTOif, May 20. The Demo cratic managers of the tariff bill con ferred among themselves yesterday with the view of finding means of hastening the final disposition of the bill, and at one time during the day decided to ask the Republicans to day to agree to a date when the vote should be taken, but after conference with the Republican leaders, decided to postpone the request for the present. They had expected to ask that the date for the vote be fixed on June 8 or 9, and thought they would be able to secure an agreement for about June 15. The conference with the Republicans convinced them that if the request should be made now it would be antagonized and probably would result in loss of time and in no appreciable accomplishment, whereas if it should be made later it might be acceded. The Savjr in a Sad Flight. Washington, May 26. Owing to a cut in the estimates submitted last year to congress for increase in the navy, the navy department has gotten into-a sad plight. The estimates pre pared by the bureau chiefs were just sufficient to carry forward the work to which the government was actuall3r committed by contracts but they were scaled down before reaching congress. As a consequence several, of the largest contractors for naval construc tion must go without their money for months, although their work has been completed and turned over to the gov ernment. Shot by Tramps. Omaha, Neb., May 26.

Judge Dit tenhoefer, counsel for Correspondent Edwards, appeared yesterday before the sugar trust investigation and an nounced he had advised his client not to give the committee the names of the persons from whom he re ceived certain information bearing upon the subject under investigation, lie quoted the supreme court decis ions in the Kilbourne and Counsel man cases in support of his position. Among other reasons, Judge Ditten hoefer stated that for Mr. Edwards to disclose the names of his informants would be to degrade him as a news paper man. The committee overruled Judge Dittenhoefer's objections, and again calling Mr. Edward in, repeated its demand that lie give the names 3 quested in the first instance, and . j peated his final decision not to comply with the demand. He was then ex cused, and the committee again went into secret session. No decision as to a future course of action was reached.

Subscribe for the Daily BtateJouasaI CAPTUREDBYWOMEN Eighteen DeputySheriffs Guard ing Cripple Creek Mines, Were Captured and Disarmed by Two Women. ELEVEN WERE KILLED By the Blowing: Up of the Shaft House. Cripple Creek, Col., May 26. Eleven men killed, with a strong probability that the number of dead will be increased when all is known, is the record of the first day of trouble here, although real fighting has not yet begun, as the deputies are await ing reinforcements before beginning active operations. At 10 o'clock yesterday morning eleven men started to work in the Strong mine on Battle mountain. Shortly afterward a party of strikers blew up the shaft-house, causing a loss of 925,000 and then dropped 100 pounds of giant powder down the shaft which was also exploded, kill ing all the inmates. Not more than 300 yards from the Strong shaft house, sixteen men, who had been engaged to go to work in the Independence mine, were surrounded in their bunk house, and after a long parley agreed to surrender. Each one was armed with a rifle and a brace of revolvers, the arms now being in the possession of the strikers. It is rumored that the strikers at tacked the Anna Lee mine, overpow ering the guards, after whieh they blew Up the shaft house, but the rumor has not been verified. When the deputies are finally massed, and the two forces come together, a most desperate battle will doubtless be fought. The situation is one of most painful anxiety.' Not a few believe the town will be a smoldering mass by another sunset if the strikers be not re strained. At Victor, six miles away, where fully. 1,000 people reside, a reign of terror exists. Within half a mile of the corporation limits of the town, all day long fully 300 union men, armed with rifles, have paraded up and down the side of the hill. Occasionally a detour into the village would be made, and people whom the miners thought to be objectionable were or dered to leave the place. The guards from Denver, upon ar rival at Victor, went into camp on a neighboring hill. The strikers threw out a picket line entirely surrounding them, but at a distance that guaran tees them safety from the deputie s' rifles. One of the largest mine owners in Colorado Springs is authority for the statements that the mine owners have planted a rifled cannon on a hill commanding the breastworks, and that it will be used to dislodge the strikers from that position. The special train bearing 150 armed deputies reached Victor about 10 o'clock yesterday morning. The depu ties were immediately surrounded by 400 miners. A pitched battle ensued, in which the deputies took refuge be hind. the rocks. The deputies finally proceeded to the Independence mine and secured possession, where they are besieged by a part of the miners. At the summit of Bull Hill, but 5o0 feet away from the Victor property, the miners have a barricade of logs and broken rock, which is supplied with loopholes and ladders. Consid erable ammunition is stored there, and also a quantity of provisions, but there is no water. Whole kegs of blasting powder have been stored in the barricade, and there is no telling to what desperate extreme the men may go. All sorts of rumors concerning the doings at the Strong mine are afloat. One of them is to the effect the work men were not killed, having been warned off by masked strikers. The deputies from Denver have with drawn to a less exposed position, where they will await reinforcements. The strikers, from their stronghold on Bull Hill, can view the country for miles, and all passes are guarded by them. Every stranger is intercepted and not allowed to proceed toward the town unless a satisfactory ex planation of his business is given. No one is permitted near enough to the seat of war to be in danger, and the streets of Cripple Creek and Vic tor, as well as the passes, are patroled by miners carrying Winchesters and revolvers. The capture and disarming of depu ties, numbering eighteen, was accom plished by women, and ever since two of the women have been holding high court in a saloon where the strikers heap congratulations upon them. Two wagons loaded with powder and cartridges for one of the mines were fcaptured by the strikers and their contents confiscated. Sam McDonald, superintendent of the Strong, Anna Lee and Gold King mines, ana Charley Robinscn, fore man of the Strong, are missing, which gives credence to the story of the slaughter. If the men were in cer tain portions of the mine the concus sion may not have killed them. Sam Strong, owner of the mine, is given as authority for the statement that eleven men were killed. judge MeCleverty Declines. Fort Scott, Kan., May 26.-In reply to a number of letters from 6ome of the leading Populists of the Second district asking him to accept the Pop ulist nomination for congress in this district.

C. I. Hood St Co., Lowell, Mass. : " Gentlemen : Wishing to tell what Hood's Sar saparilla has done for us, I will say that 3 years ago we had a beautiful boy born to us. Whfn about six months old he took a tor mouth. Everything that was known as nsual remedies In such cases was used. I had two doctors but all to no benefit. At the age ot 11 months he breathed his last. Thus we laid Our Darling Child In the grave. On Aug. 4, ln, another boy was born unto us. At the age of two months he be came afflicted with the same disease. I believed the boy's trouble was constitutional, and not common sore mouth. I procured a bottle of Hood's Sarsaparllla and commenced to glvs It regularly to both mother and baby, and occa slonly washed his mouth with a syrup of burl brush root. Improvement began at once. TVe have succeed In eradicating the scrofulous blood from the system and to-day we are blessed with a nice, fat baby boy, eighteen months old. lis Is the very Picture of Health, all life and full of mischief thanks to Hood'S Sarsaparllla. I am a minister in the Methodist Protestant church. I am here to back What I say and I am in no way Interested lu any profit In tbe matter, except it affords me much pleas ure to recommend Hood's Sarsaparllla to all as Hood's5? Cures a safe, sure remedy. Even my wife, aftef taking Hood's became healthy and fleshy and has the bloom of girlhood again. We have used only three bottles, but I keep It In the house. Kf.v. J. M.
