Mknce during speeches by Itcpresenta
tivc Coekran and Senator Stone. It la
only now that they are forced to a recog

One of Mr. Ccckran's bills made It a
misdemeanor, punishable by not less than
one year ami not more than three year"
imprisonment, for contributions to b
made to campaigns, escept under certain
condition. The bill provlJcd that when

Parker In 'vhich the IT. .-Wont admitted

IToKiMy it was in tin- campaign of UK
that most money received from such
tourers was si-nt. though lurge sums
were given In lvJ. 1.H and lC
In 1S01 Senator Chaudhr introduced a
bill in the Senate to prohibit corpora

money toward the election of any man or
party to office. This bill waj the only one
of its kind that ever got out of commit

The session wa then drawing to a close,
however, and the measure wns easily
throttled on the floor. The subject was

Artistic Clothes For Boys.
Oar stunning new Suits for Bots, jnst received, and
marked at fire dollars, differ bo much from the usual
garments at so moderate a price they're entitled to all
the consideration you can give them. They have the
same characteristics of the $7.50 Suits and meet with
the united approval of both parents and boys.
In order to pain the exceptional value at this price we
selected the cloths usually employed in the regular
f 7.50 garments nnd had them made up expressly to our
order. They are designed by the best artists in this
country and made by the most expert of skilled tailors.
The careful workmanship, superior qualities, style, etc.,
accomplishes our purpose by establishing a standard
not to be equaled elsewhere at a corresponding price.
