While William Church Osborne,' for
mer State chairman, has announced his
candidacy for United States Senator,
there is talk here thut an effort may be
made to have him lead the opposition
State ticket. The Indications all point
to Gov. Smith as the organization choice.
He may be drafted to lead his party In
the next State campaign against his will.

Is not so sure of cooperation In Its right
on President Wilson from delegates of
oilier States. Here are two things which
regular organization leaders would like
to know :
Will President Wilson be. able to con
trol the San Francisco convention?
Can William Jennings Bryan gel
enough supporters to force a dry plank
In the platform?
These two questions will have a direct
bearing on the Democratic campaign In
this State. With President Wilson In
control and a dry plank in the national
platform a Tammany "wet" candidate
for Governor would be put In an embar
rassing position. Democrats admit that
am chances which Gov. Smith might
have had of winning on a wet platform
ould be considerably lessened.

Cohoes, May 10. The fifteen textile

to-day, though a strike had been calleJ
for this morning. An Injunction was
brought against forty women operators
In the Erie mill last Saturday to pre

of Charles O'Connor, attorney for the

Tho Brooklyn City Railroad's victory
over competitive municipal buses spon
sored by Mayor Hylan was sustained
yesterday by unanimous doclslon of tho
Appellato Division of tho Brooklyn
Supremo Court, which upheld Justlco
Cropsey In granting the company a per
manent Injunction against the rival
The opinion, written by Justice Ulack
mar, declares the city Is without right
or tower to competo with the trolley
lines to which It assigned franchise
monopoly, and that no emergency exists
to Justify the city buses on that ground.
The Home Rule act, upon which the city
relied for Its authority, was pronounced
Inapplicable to this esse.
"The line of argument." said the
Court, "that the Home Rule act em
powers the city to operate stage lines or
motor vehicles In order to promote trie
welfare of the citizens would, with equal
force, apply to establishing municipal
markets, municipal department stores,
municipal drug stores, or any other on
ternrlse which the officials In power con.
cetve would be In the interest of public
welfare. No such meaning can be given
to the act."
The court said that no emergency ex
isted reuulrlnir the buses though "i
permanent condition of Inadequacy of
service may hnve existed.
William B. Carswell, Assistant Cor
poratlon Counsel, said he would take an
appeal from tho decision If the court
would grant him permission. The de
cision affects threo competitive bus
lines, those serving Flatbush avenue,
Park Slone and Greenpolnt.
Mercurial Staten Islanders, who took
to the city buses when the trolley lines
heenn chanting nn elsht cent fare, were
loud yesterday In their denunciation of
the buses. A tnirrt or mo ous unvers
earned so much money from carrying
Sunday crowds that they did not appear
with their vehicles vesteraay. me city
buses are under no obligation to adhere
to schedules, but.aro allowed to run
when they please.
One of the best rules in print
ing is to avoid rules in printing.
Printers have, happily, outgrown
the age of rules. Not only are
they archaic, but they are ugly
and superfluous, and are nearly
always evidence of laziness on'
the part of the layout man.j
This indictment docs not apply i
to border rules, Which often serve
a useful purpose, nor to rules
under running-head3 which some
times may be used to advantage.
But it is safer to avoid them too.

We resume our 9 to 5 store hours today
it tie Great 20 Per Cent Sale Goes
20 per cent, deducted from every price, regular and special 20 per cent,
off everything in the entire Wanamaker retail stocks in New York and
Philadelphia, except a few trade-mark goods whose prices we cannot
honorably change, and the mail order stocks.
We can hardly close the doors at night. The peo
ple just won't gd. "Please let me stay a few minutes
longer and complete my purchases," they say. . In re
sponse to this insistent demand from the public for a
longer day during this sale we extended our closing
to 6 o'clock. But now in. fairness to our loyal store
family who in deference to the public wishes have
stood the strain so splendidly and happily we resume
our usual 5 o'clock closing. We know the shopping
public will reciprocate and co-operate by coming
promptly at R in the morning in order that we niay
serve everybody and finish the day's work by 5 o'clock.
Everything is 20 per cent less except
one woman was heard to call
to another "come on, get into
it, and get what you want before
Everybody is good-natured.
Everybody realizes that in such
a business turn -over as this there
must be a certain amount of
"give and take."
"Yes, you givo and we take,"
said a customer to whom this
remark was made. "We're taking
all right."- .
"I'll take them all"
U was about noon in the sheet and
pillow case section. Crowds everywhere,
waiting to buy. Finally one housewife,
a bit impatient, stepped behind the
counter and, folding her arms around a
big bundle of pillow cases, called out
'I'll take all of these. I don't know how
many there arc, but I want all of them."
And she took them!
Again it was after- the store closing
bugle had sounded. A mother came
hurrying into the Girls' Store. Every
body was busy straightening stoek. But
the woman wont through rack after rack,
table after table, and, laying exactly
twenty washable frocks aside", she' ex
claimed: "I'll take, these right now; I'm
afraid this sale won't go on next week."
"I'm coming back"
She admitted she was tired, but there
was a smile on her face as she stepped up
to a Floor Manager in the Down-Stairs
Store. "I didn't' bring half enough
money today; are your sure this sale will
be here torrow? .... I'm coming back."
Tomorrow is uncertain. The sale will
continue so long as we announce it, but
some day there will come a tomorrow
when the sale will end.
Better make the most of today,
day is sure.
Still hadn't heard
Three-thirty in the (afternoon in the
Corset Salon. People in line waiting to
be served. One woman received her
change and counted it with an expression

"20 per cent, off?.... Why?"
The answer was lost in the babel of
tongues, but the customer turned from
the counter with a smile of surprise.
"S'o wonder there's a crowd," she mur
What 20 per cent, means
"I must have forgotten all I learned in
school," she said to her companion. "I
didn't.realize that 20 per cent, means $5
on a purchase of $25. Say, I'd like to
get that much interest on my savings
account, wouldn't you?"
