The Hague (via London), April 25.
Pitlicultips on all ?ides have been en?
countered even before the meeting oi
the International Women's Congress
which is scheduled to gather at Th?
Hague this week to discuss peace.
The steamer Noordam, which was
due yesterday with the American dele?
gates, has not arrived, although it is
expected momentarily. The German
authorities have refused to grant per?
mits to the chief German delegates,
and the British delegation, after hav?
ing been cut by the British govern?
ment to one-sixth the original number,
has been unable to cross the Channel,
owing to lack of ?hipping facilities.
The Svvis? delegates telegraphed to?
day. "We havo been prevented from
coming." They give no explanation,
but it is assumed that Germany has
declined to allow teem to pas?. The

Mrs. ( olvin ?aid their suffrage craft
had certainly had a stormy passage
over the legislative sea.
"Last year," she recollected, "af*er
the amendment had been passed the
first time by the Legislature, it came up
for the second passage, and should
have passed, only after we hail been
assured by the men in charge that it
was properly advertised, we discovered
that in one of the twenty-one counties
the advertising had been neglected.
And so it was necessary to reintroducc*
the measure, and a year was lost.
"This year the measure was nearly
wrecked by the removal of a comma
from one of the section?. All these
errors do look uueer, don't they? But

Variety is the word this
To emphasize the variety
of Spring suits we have at all
the popular prices, we ore de?
voting most of our windows
each day to showing some or
thesuitsat or about one price.
The object is three-fold?
. To show the handsome
new fabrics more completely
than is possible in our every
day window displays, which
cover a variety of wearables.
To impress on every man
the fact that whatever the
girth of his pocketbook?we
are there with attractive suits.
To illustrate vividly that
though we specialize on no
one price, at every one of
the usual steps from $?20 to
$40 we have enough different
patterns, not only to meet
every shade of taste but to
stock a good sized clothing
store by themiselves.
To-day the Variety Show
begins with suits at $35 and
$40 displayed, and we hope
you will take a look at our
windows when passing any
one of our four stores.
