A Statement That May Be In
teresting Concerning the
Wana maker Advertising
and the " Evening Post."
Many communications from personal and
business friends are coming to us with the state
ment that the firm of Wanamalcer is, in its
advertising department, boycotting the " Evening
Fost " because of lis attitude towards the bag
gage abuse at the Custom House.
The statement is untrue from every point of
view.
The following facts aro the proof of the un
truth: First. We have never, as a firm or as individ
uals, belonged to the Merchants' and Manufac
turers' League ; we have never contributed to Its
treasury, and our only relation to it his been to
decline, consistently and continuously, all its
appeals to us for sympathy and aid,
Second. Our opinions are completely in har
mony with the position of the "Evening Post"
upon the baggage matter, as is well known by
the publisher of that paper, and we have evi
dence that its editorial department is equally well
informed.
The suspension of our advertising relations
with the " Evening Posf'came about as follows:
An attitude that we deemed inimical to the re
tail interests of New York City appeared in the
"Evening Post," which reached extreme expres
sion in an article printed on the 8th of March.
The following are its headlines :
WOMEN'S CLOTHES ABROAD
TO BE HAD BETTER AND CHEAPER
THERE THAN HERE.
Gowns from Paris Workmanship and Design
Prices of London Coats Experiences at
Home Dresses Soiled on the Pier.
It began, "A woman cannot get as good wear
ing apparel in New York as she can in London
and Fans for the same price, with duty added."
This article abounded in statements that could
be easily proven untrue. We therefore regarded
It as an attack upon the entire retail business of
New York, without doubt the most advanced
city of the world in retail merchandising. In the
belief that the "Eening Post" would welcome
information that would correct this error, a good
natured discussion followed; the writer of the
article and the publisher were readily convinced
of the mistake. At this time there was no
thought of withdrawing our advertising from the
"Evening Post."
We expected nothing but the correction of
error by truthful statement. Disappointment
followed, and it was proven that the article in
question was written under editorial direction.
After this we simply omitted to send our ad
vertising to the " Evening Post " and have had
no communications upon the subject since March
13th. The point to be considered is whether it is
wise to expend money upon advertising in a paper
that by editorial policy depreciates its own adcr
tising value.
The situation at this date, so far as we are con
cerned, remains unchanged, but the " Evening
Post " printed on the 28th of March an editorial
from which the following is taken. The sense
of the portion printed is not affected by the
omission of the latter part:
' ' We print two letters to-day relating to the
absence from our columns of the usual announce
ments of certain dry goods hrms. These corre
spondents and others wish to know the reason of
the sudden withdrawal of this usual information
for our shopping subscribers. The reason is that
a considerable number of dry goods firms aie
displeased with our treatment of the baggage
matter and some cognate subjects. They claim
the right to direct our mode of treating certain
topics, as is the custom, we are informed, in
Philadelphia. If they would not absolutely pro
hibit the baggage topic, they would have pre
ferred that we should let it alone. But they es
pecially object to the appearance in our columns
of any mention, even by correspondents, of the
fact that some goods are cheaper in Europe than
in America. Our difficulty about complying with
their desire is that we have always presented our
independence, both in the choice of our topics
and in our manner of treating them, as our chief
title to public confidence. Any departure from this
policy under pecuniary inducements from the out
side would constitute a fraud of a very gross
kind on our readers, so that, however reasonable
the demand may be, we cannot comply with It."
The allusion to Philadelphia directs the animus
of the editorial from which the quotation is made
especially against our firm. Its allegations by im
plication are, every one of them, in general and in
particular without foundation in fact so far as our
firm is concerned.
We were not displeased with the "Post's"
treatment of the baggage matter.
We did not claim the right to direct the
" Post's " treatment of the baggage matter and
other cognate subjects. The " Post " has a letter
of ours proving this.
We never have tried to direct the policy of any
Philadelphia newspaper (save the "North Amer
ican," now owned by members of our firm) upon
any subject in v. hich we have a business interest.
We never have objected to truthful comparisons
of American and English prices.
We never have questioned the independence of
the " Post," nor solicited it to become absurd.
When requested to supply facts to the " Post"
we have declined to assist in its editorial work.
We hae never asked the "Post" to compro
mise its honesty. Our only contention has been
that it should be honest.
We have been liberal customers and useful
business friends of the "Evening Post;" have
never asked nor desired favors at its hands. We
are not members of any organization for the con
trol of advertising rates nor for any other pur
pose. But row, for business reasons, being compelled
to suspend buying its advertising, we are not per
mitted to withdraw quietly. The sting of the
editorial scorpion is to be found in the venom of
allegation, implication, innuendo; subtle and per
Nasive, bat carefully kept within the danger line
Ci libelous expression.
Common decency would ha.e protected us
from the license of misrepresentation in the arti
cle in question, but prejudice in this case has
blindfolded courtesy and dismissed truth as a su
pernumcrar). A critical examination of the " Post's " action
develops the humor of its pcsiticn :n this mat
'er. What sensible advertiser would for a moment
desire to control its polity or influence its opin
ions to conform to bis own if he differed? Such
wlue as it may have to the advertiser rests upon
its power to reach a certain class of readers. The
retailer wants customers and it is no affair of his
whether they are ft'e-traders or protectionists,
expansionists or anti-expansionists. A protec
tionist in control of the " Post " would fatally
impir its alue for advertising.
No! We only wanted the "Post' to be
truthful but that is before .t forgot itself and
liecame malicious.

The End of the Beginning I
CASTER marks the formal opening of ihe season. There is no more
"beginning'' the season has begun. We turn from early preparations
and advance announcements and openings to the serious and important busi
ness of supplying present and very pressing demands.
If we may judge the immediate future from the immediate past, the
whole season by its beginning, the measure of your favor to us will be
greater than has ever been recorded in any New York retail establishment.
So far as we can secure this end by striving to deserve it, it will be secured.
Announcement will shortly be made of the much expected display of Imported Costumes. This, in
reply to innumerable and constantly increasing inquiries. The display will be somewhat more extensive than evea
that of last Fall. A stronger statement concerning it could not be made.
We inaugurate to-day a series of matinee music'ales, to take place at 3 P. M. each day this week. At these, prominent artists will appear inl
an interesting, varied, and (we hope) enjoyable programme will be presented. The Krell piano will be used.
These musicales wUl be given in a provisional music-room on the fifth floor. Admission will be limited to the seating capacity of the hall; and
by ticket only, to be procured (without charge), on application at Inquiry Office, First Floor.

More Enamelled Ware at Half Prices
A carload of this ware, sold under similar conditions a few weeks ago,
lasted less than a day. Let's see how long this lot will last.
These goods are the steel utensils lined with the Stewart enamel.
The lining is acid-proof and practically indestructible under fair conditions.
The character of the goods is very high, so high that a "second" of
this make is superior to the ' ' firsts ' ' of many others.
These goods are "seconds," that is, there are superficial imperfec
tions and certain rough places in the enamelling. Nothing to hurt. And
the prices are just one-half what the goods sell for when impeccably perfect.
Coffee-Pots, Tea-Kettles, Cook-Pots, Saucepans, Covered Buckets,
Pudding Pans, Preserving Kettles, and dozens of other things. Half

ing of our assortments. An illustra
tion of what we mean can be found
in the present condition of our Pa
risian dress stuff assortments, as com
pared with others that did not stand
the Easter demand so well. Color
has played a more important part in
the choosing .this year than ever, and
those assortments that were not strong
in the suddenly wanted colors are
already at a discount. All the styles
in the world that are not the styles
wanted will not satisfy one who is
looking for the particular gray or tan
or "pastel" shade that the season
has marked for its own.
We did our buying with accurate
judgment, and with the prophetic
knowledge of what would be wanted
that marks all good buying. Con
sequently we have not only very
large assortments to show, but as
sortments of the styles you want.
Here's a little list of the things we
have found most in demand. All
