In Florence much progress has been

A few months back none of we
retailers dreamed that we would be
forced to ell our stocks at such
tremendous loss. Everybody knew
that aooner or later the drop In
clothing prices would come but the
great event was not looked for until
the spring of 1921. Manufacturers
furnished data and, wrote letters
which convinced us all that there
was not a chance for a radical
change In the clothing market. I
believed and was convinced that
such was the status and bought
heavily for the coming season. This
year I bought heavier than usual,
thinking that my orders would not
all be filled. When I saw the pend
ing fU In prices I canceled a num
ber of ray orders but in a great
number of cases this was Impos
sible. At the beginning of - the fall
season my stock was the largest

and you will remember that I Im
mediately started cutting prices.
Right at the beginning of the sea
son I sold fall and winter clothing
at a 20 discount.
; AtNthe announcement of my first
!0 discount the publio responded
liberally. "Many people had been
Tiuttinff off iho purchase of new
clothing untiTu noticeable reductl
was made. My reduction was Just
what they had been waiting for and
my customers and friends were well
pleased with the values offered.

of readjustment. There never was a
proposition. There never was a
man living who really liked to lose
money but there are thousands of
business men today who are 'learn
ing to like it." 1 am one step ahead
of these thousands I "learned" to
like it several months ago and now
am real happy. The condition was
coming, that we all knew. Now
that it Is here we have to face it.
' Hyder Brothers store is usually
just a little bit ahead of the rest
of the field. When I announce to
you that my entire line of clothing
is now to be sacrificed at a dls

The people of the T'nited States
have forced clothing down. VVhro

four and five suits per year he cut

has been created, however.
The feast of the immaculate concep

of the Church of Assumption to give
thanks for the improvements made on
the church this year, ffhe building.
retintlng and furnishing of the church
were Just completed this fall after a
campaign of several years and exten
sive services to celebrate the success
of the undertaking have been carried
on all this week. The missionary Fath
ers P. Vincente and A. Lucas are visit
ing the parish at this time and have
assisted In the ceremonies. .
Break Even in Games with Ray
The basketball teams from the high
school went to Kay last Saturday night
and split the honors 60 50 with the
copper town folks. The girls' team
won over their smaller opponents In
a walk-away game by a score of 14 2.
The miner lads, however, upset the
dope by running up a 20 16 score
against the Florence team. Th? game
was fast and well conducted by Pro
fessor Carpenter of Phoenix nigh. Af
ter the games the visitors were treated
to a feed and a dance.
Red Cress to Aid in Local Work
Miss Luella Erion, field supervlstor
for the Red Cross bureau of publio
health nursing, was In town last week
to stimulate Interest in the community
work of the Red Cross and to inspect
the work being done here. Through

WASHINGTON, Dec. 4 The "black
and tans" who are mentioned so often
in reports oi aoings in ireiana were
the subject of questions by members of
the special committee investigating
charges of British troclties in Ireland.
Francis Hackett, witness, explained
that the so-called "black and tans" get
their name from the fact that they
wear the black trimmings of the Royal
Irish constabulary with the tan or
khaki uniform of the ex-army man.
These men are nominally auxiliary
police. They have been sent over from
England to supplement the constaDu
larv. The latter, havfng been in Ire
land for many years, were believed to
havA rone over to the cause or tnc
Tn order, therefore, to- stirren tne
British influence in the force, the Brit
iah government enlisted these special
men. mostly ex-army men and some
men with a criminal record, and sent
them to Ireland, each with the rank ot
sergeant. This makes them superior
In authority to the old Irish constabu
lary, which fact incidentally has pro
duced much hard feeling.
The black and tans draw a pound
day to which 15 shillings is added if
they are serving In "disturbed areas.
So the 'black and tan ' is accused or
keeping his area "disturbed."
Hackett Informed the investigating
commission that many of these men
in his Judgment would do anything
from murder and arson down or up,
Similar testimony given before the
commission seemed to justify this
It was all a harrowing .gruesome
tale, but there are dramatic episodes
that stand out with the vividness of
pictures taken by flashes of lightning. '
There is one in the testimony or Mrs.
King, a school teacher of Irontown,
O.. who was traveling in Ireland to
visit the birthplace of her mother. She
got the story from the mother of the
boy killed the day after it happened.
In one of the raids conducted by the
black and tans the later appeared at
the door of a workingman's little cot
tage. It was evening and in response
to the hangings on the door, an old
woman appeared with a candle in her
hand. She was pushed aside by the
black and tans who leaped up the little
stairway carrying electric flashlights
and drawn revolvers. The only other
occupant of the house was a hunch-
The black and tans rushed upstairs
and discovered the hunch-backed boy
m one or the Dearooms. lie was on
the bed In an attitude of prayer. One
ot the police fired a bullet which went
through the boy s hands and face kill
ing him instantly.
It is not denied that there have been
killings of the police by representatives
of the Sinn Fein government.
In a guarded way, the witnesses ex
plained that the killings of police, of
which the British government com
plains so bitterly, were decided upon
by the Sinn Fein government after
careful deliberation, and as a last des
perate remedy against the brutalities
that is, he had been tried iy a secret
"Sinn Fein court ana testimony naa
been taken showing that he was guilty
of some crime, some uncalled for bru
tality and that he ought to be executed.
The commission was told by most or
the witnesses that conditions ye be
coming daily worse in Ireland; that
the railroads are being gradually
checked in their operations by the gov
ernment; and that famine is the r.ext
threat for the country. This, it is oe
lieved, will set the stage for a general

FACTS ON NATION'S WEALTH
Analysis of the 1919 lpcome tax re
turns has proceeded fax enough to
permit the announcement that there
are 20,00 millionaires In the United
States, with a family population ot
60,000, or one to eaeli 2100 population.
In 1917 there were but 16,000 the bulk
of the Increase of 4000 being attrib
uted to war fortunes. But not all of
the 20,000 may actually have a mil
lion. The conclusion was reached by
the number of persons acknowledging
an income of at least $50,000, the low
est probable return on a million.
There are salaried executives receiv
ing 150,000 or more who may not have
accumulated anything like a million.
Nearly 16,000 of the 20.000 confessed
incomes ranging from $50,000 to $750,
000; 90 from that to a million a year,
and 162 had over a million income,
where there were only 141 in 117.
Approximately 4,000,000 heads of
families filed income tax reports, but
at least half of these represented
imnuies wnoso annuaj income was
$2000 or less.
The figures are presented hv the in
ternal revenue office for information's
sake. What they may be twisted to
mean will depend upon the individual
Dcni or tne commentator. One point
of view that may be overlooked is
that with the 50 per cent purchasing
power of the dollar the bulk of these
millionaires may be only half million'
aires at that On the same way of fig
uring there would appear to be 2,000,-
000 heads of families struggling with
incomes worth $1000 or less. Pitts
There are 54 kinds of paper money
