We must be approaching a new era in advertising, as tbe various encyclopedias and thesaurua' are being daily robbed of their choicest literary expressions in order to properly describe the wonderful (?) merits and cheapncaof ready-made clothe*, which are, pre sumably, sold for less than cost that some one may get rich. Notwithstanding this state of affairs men who wish to sppear well dressed continue to go to a re liable Tailor and pay a fair price for a good suit of clothea?often, too. with the remark that "they have been caught once before, and that once was enough." Yet there are some men who go to the other extreme and pay an exorbitant price when a saving of 25 per cent can be readily effected. Doing a strictly cash business, thus having no losses to make good, and no gilt-edge salaries to pay (I do my own cutting), I can readily afford to sell for one-fourth less than the usual prices charged by other reputable Tailors. After you are through experimenting with cheap Trousers and cheaper ready-made clothes, drop in and 1st me make you a pair of Trousers, or a suit that will satisfy you in style, elegance, lit, comfort, and price.

The Syrian Industry.?Consul Bissinger, at Beirut, Syria, in a report to the Department of State says that Syrian silk growers now look covetously toward the United states as a market for raw bilks, which developed phe nominally in a very short time. Silk reelers in Syria are manifesting much anxiety to estab lish direct intercourse with manufacturers in the United States. The Appointment of Gen. Schofield to be acting Secretary of War during Secretary Proc tor's absence, as announced in yesterday's Stab, is a return to the old practice of the depart ment before the difficulties arose between Sec retary Lincoln and Gen. Sheridan that were be queathed to the last administration. Gen. Ben?t, the chief of ordnance, acted durine the recent absence of the secretary on account of the absence also of Gen.

How the False Rumors Arise?Disgrun tled Office-Seekers at the Bottom of It. President Harrison is holding pretty firmly to the policy of permitting commissioned officers of the civil service to hold over until the expiration of their terms. The one an swer to the importunate congressmen who in sist upon prompt removals and speedy appoint ment, is: "Four years. The terms must expire before removal." They have all met with this reply to their urgings. and have come to un derstand that this policy is to be inflexible. There must be some very good reason to se cure a removal before the expiration. This causes much dissatisfaction among the candi dates who are waiting for the appointments, and the congressmen talk as if dissatisfied whether or not thev feel so. Out of this and the disposition of the President to make only such selections for office as are satisfactory to himself, grows all the grumbling that is heard about hotel lobbies, and the gosi4p about disa greement in the cabinet. By taking the re sponsibility for appointments upon himself the President relieved his cabinet officers of a great deal of responsibility. When pressed to make appointments by men who think they have some claims upon them the members of the cabinet can honestlv say that the final settle ment of the matter lies with the President and they must look to him. In this way the Presi dent takes upon himself all the "cussing" for delays Ac., and the politicians who are disap pointed give it out that the cabinet officers are us powerless as they are?and as much dissatis fied. GEN. DRUM'S RETIREMENT. Gen. Kelton is Adjutant-General Ad Interim?Who Will Get the Plum? The retirement of Adjutant-General Drum at noon to-day was marked by no especial inci dent. Several of the chiefs of division in his office called on him and bade him good-bye, and there was quite a number of officers at his door during the day to give him their official adieus. Of course the main topic of conversation among those in the department was the selec tion of a successor to Gen. Drum, which has proven so fruitful a source of speculation for weeks past. The general drift of opinion to day was in favor of Gen. Kelton, although there were many who shook their heads and gave it as their private idea that Col. Whipple is a prom ising candidate. Although the contest for the vacancy has wuxed warm of late there has been an unmoved calm in the conduct and manner of Col. Kelton throughout; in fact, he has scarcely taken any steps himself in the matter, and whatever has been done in his interest was by his friends, who have volunteered their services. Gen. Kelton. by virtue of his senior rank in the corps, began to act as adjutant-general ad interim at noon. THE RAILROAD WAR RENEWED. Messrs. Parker aud Dwyer Write to the New Commissioners. The District Commissioners to-day received the following letter from Messrs. Parker and Dwyer: "We beg to inform you that on the examina tion of the files of your office you will find a number of communications from the under signed (which the late Commissioners refused to act upon) stating in detail many Illegal occu pations of streets, alleys, sidewalks, as also gross violations of U. S. statutes and District laws by the B. A P. railroad company, all under the cloak of illegal permits horn former Com missioners. In one instance Delaware avenue crossing Virginia avenue is blocked by illegal fence, preventing the use of Delaware ave nue in any manner by the public. The late Commissioners requested the railroad company to remove the fence and erect safety gates. Said request has been to tally* ignored by the company. The same may be said of E street, which is obstructed in violation of taw, the company's charter and the request of the Commissioners. You are also informed that a freight building has been erected on a public alley, square 493. notwith standing the fact that a committee of property owners called on the Commissioners and the inspector of buildings and notified them of, the fact. Yet after said visit the inspectors saw fit to issue the permit, which is a violation of the regulation he is supposed to carry out. The track into said square lias been decided illegal by the Supreme Court, the present District At torney. and Capt. Symons. Our former letters fully explain the other violations. We ask nothing out the strict enforcement of the law, let it hurt or put to expense the railroad com pany or the taxpayer. i iCarry out the law without respect to person or company.

Braidwood, III., May 28 (2:30 a. m.).?The two companies of Chicago militia, which left that city for Braidwood last night, had a nar row escape at Gardner. The conductor of the train had received orders to run slowly be tween Gardner and Braidwood. It was well that this warning was given, otherwise there would have been a terrible disaster. On reaching Gardner it was found that some miscreants had wedged stones in the switches so firmly that a wreck would sorely have fol lowed had not the obstructions been dis covered. As it was the boys received a suffi cient warning from the attempted train wreck ing to dampen their spirits, and the songs and chaffing, which had previously been heard, suddenly ceased, and the countenances of the soldier lads became decidedly serious. At this hoar no trouble is expected to-night No gatling gun was taken from Chicago, as had been expected. ENGINEERS DISSATISFIED. A Proposition for a Renewal of the Great Strike.

Chicaoo. Mar 28.?It is believed that the be ginning of the end has come in the Cronin tragedy. P. O'Sullivan, the Lakeview ice man. who haa been arrested for complicity in the 1 murder, has confessed that he had known Coughlin for years instead of having become I acquainted with him only since the murder, i He also admitted that he was a member of the | Clan-Na-Gael in good sLiuduig aud was present at Lincoln hall, at No. 501 Lincoln avenue. the , night of Marcn 22 last when Cronin and others initiated several new members, taking one of j the officer's chairs.

Mich., for whom Coughlin j hired a white horse on May 4th. lias been sus pended from duty pending further exanuna- j tion. Still another policeman is wanted. He called at Dinan's livery stable on the night of May 4th. and asked Charles Moreland. the hostler, if all the rigs were iu. This was at 10 o'clock, and the query is made, why should he ask if all the rigs were in? When the hostler an swered in the affirmative the policemtn walked off. Capt. Schaak has questioned all his men. who were on duty that night, and the myster ious policeman is yet to be found. SULLIVAN REVEALS THE WHOLE PLOT. The Times this morning says that at the in terview yesterday between Sullivan. Mayor Boldenweck, Capt. Schack, and Lieut. Scbut ler, Sullivan revealed the whole plot, and it is said that many heretofore prominent and sup posedly respectable citizens of Chicago. New York, St. Louis, and Philadelphia arc impli cated He revealed to the police the names of ? 11 those connected with the great crime. Mayor Boldenweck said last night that the statement was of the most startling nature. "It implicates many; but I must not talk." Several sensational arrests may be expected to-day. The Lakeview officials, however, at 2:30 this morning denied that Sullivan had made any confession. WHO DROVE THE WAOOS? Police Captain Wing received a letter yes terday postmarked Holly Springs. May 23. signed P. C. R.. purporting to give the address of the man who drove the wagon containing Cronin's body at least part of the way trora the cottage where the murder occurred to the catch basin. Woodruff is supposed to have driven it the rest of the way. PETER m'OEEHAN's ALIBI. It now appears that Peter McGeehan wag at Pullman the night of Dr. Cronin's murder and could not have taken part in the crime. There are a number of people at Pulmian and Ken sington who say positively that thev saw Mc Geehan on the niKnt ol Dr. Crouin's disappear ance. John Burns aud George Burns, two brothers, who lived at Mrs. Morrissey's board ing-house on Watt avenue. Pullman, where Mc Geehan also lived, say positively that Mc Geehan was in the house playing cards the night of May 4. Mrs. Morrissey and a cham bermaid in the house are also sure that they saw McGeehan that night. Thos. Marker went to church with McGeehan Sunday morning. Lieut. Kane is also quite positive that he saw him in Pullman that night. THE CLAS-NA-OAEL'S PROTEST. Two hundred delegates, representing eleven camps of the Clan-Na-Gael. met last night at No. 143 Randolph street to take action regard ing the murder of Dr. Cronin. Luke Dillon, of Philadelphia, presided at the meeting, and Ed ward M. Lahiff was secretary. The following preamble and resolution were adopted: Whereas, we have heard with deep regret of the terrible crime that has fallen on our fair city in the death of Dr. P. S. Cronin; therefore, be it, Jfe-so/wi. That we. the representatives of the Clan-Nft-Guel. place on record our uttr detest ation of the crime of assassination, and we en ter our solemn protest against the evident at tempt of the murderers of our brother to place the crime of his death on our order. It is not the spirit nor object of the Clan-Na-Gael. and we repudiate it. and hereby pledge our best ef forts to the authorities to aia in nunting down the criminals and to vindicate law and order. LE CAROS'e 80S ORDERED TO ENGLAND. It is being quietly announced that L. Bur lingham's drug store, at 351 North Clark street, is to have a new proprietor by June. A gen tleman who was making a purchase a few evenings ago was so informed over the counter. When Le Car on left for England on the re ceipt of a cipher dispatch, he sold out quietlv and for a small price. Cronin, Le Caron and the druggist had been associated together for a time, and when Le Caron began to be sus pected. it is said that the three ended their friendship with some show of anger in the courts. They sued each other. It is said that the police have fully sifted the matter and that to tnem it is only an interest ing incident, not even remotely connected with the LeCaron case, nor with the Cronin ! matter. It is a matter of speculation as to j whether the coroner will take it up. The in quest will be resumed to-morrow. LeCaron's son. who. it is understood has | been living in Chicago and quietly working at his calling in a large wholesale house, haa been summoned to England. The cablegram upon which he acted probably came from his father. The only presumption that obtains is that the father, learning that Cronin had been ??removed." and fearing that on account of his own former relations with Cronin his sou ; might be dragged into trouble, cabled him to come. "POINTERS" GIVES BT SULLIVAN. That P. O. Sullivan, the Lakeview ice man. made a full confession yesterday concerning hi* connection with the murder of Dr. Cronin and gave to the police the names of several per sons who were implicated in the awful crime wai confirmed this monnng. Capt. Schaak. when asked about the matter, hesitated and finallv said: "Well, there is no use deuviug it. Sullivan gave us a good many valuable pointers, but we can't give them out now without hurting our case." Chief Hubbard was questioned in regard to the matter, and admitted that a well-known man was being closely watched, and that while he is at liberty to go where he chooses in this city, he is" practically under arrest, and any attempt on his part to leave the city would result in his being placed behind the bars. Chief Hubbard was at work all night and was at his desk early this morning. He refused to sav whether there had been any ar- I rests made since P. O. Sullivan was taken into | custody, but from his manner it was inferred that several arrests were made last night. THK CORONER'S WQCE8T. Coroner Hertz convened his jury at 10 o'clock this morning, and before tawing testimony in the case took it out to Lake View to examine the Carlson cottage, in which the murder is supposed to have been committed.
