People Disturbed by Noisy Street
Many complaints are made about the
noise of the street cleaners at night,
and they seem to be well based. A
Hbbald reporter had got into his bed
the other night at a little after 2 o'clock
in the morning, and waß just ready to
enjoy a good Bleep when the aweeper
passed by, followed in a few momenta
by the wagons and the men who gather
the sweepings. These men yell to each
-other from across the street, shouting
their opinions on various matters, and
emphasizing their remarks with strong
language and epithets. Their ahovels
were carelessly clanged on the pave
ment, and a great amount of unnecea
aary noiee was made. This was on a
residence street, and it ia to be pre
aumed that a large proportion of "the
people iv the neighborhood were dis
It ia sure that the people who live on
streets which come under the care of
the street cleaning department would be
tremendously gratified for a little con
sideration from the men.

Making Money Hand Over Fist—How He
Works His Promissory Note Racket.
Arrested for Being Drunk.
John O'Callaghan, the red-headed
book agent who succeeded in getting the
signatures of a lot of Oakland women to
promissory notes, on the subterfuge of
selling them books illustrated by Dote,
has, after visitiDg Loa Angeles, turned
up in Santa Ana. Hia method is in
genious. He will call at a residence
and represent to the lady of the house
that she may procure the works at the
nominal price of five cents per day, pay
able in monthly installments, the whole
sum of $36 becoming due in two years'
time, The purchaser appends her sig
nature to what she supposes to be a con

four such victims were found." On Fri
day the city marshal thought he looked
like a fugitive he had a description of,
and tried to arrest him, but O'Calla
ghan was too quick and made his es
cape. Later the mistake was explained
and the wiley agent was so pleased that
he got drunk as a lord, and was locked
up and fined. On Monday he was again
arrested for being drunk. He makes
money wherever he goes, his receipts in

Wednesday, August 19, 1891.
Today we received our first merchandise on the list of our fall purchase. This
season our methods will be somewhat varied from the past. We will present to
your notice immediately upon arrival the various lines of goods that we receive,
and elaborate upon their merit and woith.
• -<»
' You have been informed heretofore that it is our intention to carry a finer
line of goods in all departments the coming season. We feel in this respect just
like a new house starting into a new place with a new business. In order to se
cure the trade we must make the price answer as an inducement, and we are alive
to the situation. We will say further, the ratio of profit that we charge wi!! be
the smallest consistent with existence. We have that confidence in our mer
chandise throughout every department under our roof that no matter what the
article may be that you purchase, if it is not satisfactory, and you return it in a
saleable condition, your money is at your disposal.
Among other tilings we received today there was a line of ladies' white lawn
shirt waists that we have placed on sale at 50c. It is needless to say that at this
price they are worthy of your attention. Colored sateen shirt waists, with polka
dot effect, at 75c. Embroidered front pique shirt waists, and plain as well, at 75c.
You can have your choice of a dozen different styles at this price ; none of them
are worth less than $1 and over.
We are showing in this department the nicest effects in indigo prints, all new
styles and designs for this fall, of which we are selling 14 yards for $1; we war
rant the color fast and the fabric the best made, even if you pay 12% c for it.
A line of fall styles in dress prints, new effects, patterns that never before
have been shown in this market, 16 yards for $1.
In white goods we are showing some of the prettiest styles and designs, prices
ranging from 5c to 35c a yard.
The beautiful cloth known as Madras cloth we have on special sale today at
20c a yard; it is one of the dressießt and prettiest cotton fabrics manufactured for
dress wear.
Have you seen our show window and the values we have displayed in it 7 The
most exquisite line of flouncings, from 40 to 45 inches deep, in nainsook and
swiss, the very newest and latest designs, hemstitched and otherwise, at $1 a
yard; narrow widths to match at 10c and 12y.ic ; we will not say what these goods
are worth, for if you want any it will pay you to look at them; you cannot resist
their value. t
We are in receipt of some extra fine black cashmere finished sateens, a supe
rior quality to any we have ever had in our house; placed on sale today at 25c.
In our show windows we are illustrating some of the very prettiest effects for
present wear; all wool, silk and wool, silk warp, serges, etomines, nuns' veilings
and albatrosses, open and lace effects, in black and white, ranging in price
from 50c to $1 per yard.
For young and middle-aged people at this season of the year there is nothing
bo becoming or so dressy as cream in these effects. It has the appearance of mak
ing one look and feel so cool, delightful and dressed in defiance of old Sol. There
is certainly not a material that has such charming effects for young people as
these soft, creamy materials, and it seems somewhat strange that there are not
more of them seen on the streets or at the seaside.
The price of these goods will serve as an inducement and introduce the sale
here. In eastern cities at this season of the year it is a rarity to see a dress made
of any other color.
In ladies' black Bilk mitts we are showing an article at 85c that ia a perfect
gem ; very heavy Milanese silk, it is a heavy, black, lustrous, beautiful quality,
will outwear four pair of cheaper ones, and the same time lending grace to the
Ladies' black and colored silk gloves, 75c a pair.
Foster's celebrated aeven-hook kid glovea, $1.50; will give you better service
and more wear than any $2 pair of gloves that you can buy; in black or colors;
each pair warranted and fitted to tbe band.
We have mittß and gloves in cotton, taffeta, lisle thread and silk, at any price
from 10c up to $1.25, but we enumerate the above aa being exceptionally good
Today we make a slash in men'a business suits; we cut the price to $10 and
$13.50; thia ia not an advertiaing cut, but ia a general bona fide reduction; the
goods are seal worsted, fine silk mixture, first-class trimmings and the very beat
of material.
In children'a clotiiing we defy anybody to meet our pricea; we have always
been and always will be the lowest in this line; we will not advertise any prices;
if you will consult us we are sure to save you money.
Men'a linen (lusters, full lengths, $1.
Men's working pants, $1.85.
Men'a all-wool dress pants, $3.25.
Bova' Bailor suite, gray flaanel, silk embroidered anchors, exceptionally
fine, $1.
Youths' long pants suits, medium weight, gray mixed cassimere, $3.75.
We will not dwell upon the- worth of these articles. We have gained the
reputation of selling gooda cheap, and you may reat assured that what we quote
to you will dispel anything at the prices that you can see on the street.
The finest black sateen shirts for men that can be manufactured; made of
Wm. Simpson & Sona' finest fast black sateen, which haa a national reputation
for its luster, durability and finfsh, silk stitched and white pearl buttons, every
size, no shrinkage, no miamarking of sizes, everything fair and square, manufac
tured by us, price $1; if you can get this shirt in town for $1.50 elsewhere we will
make you a present of oura; tbat is where we stand in our furnishing goods de
Men's white gauze underwear, 35c each.
Men'a fine embroidered night robea v 9Bc.
Surah, china or grenadine Windsors, 35c apiece; worth 50c to 75c.
Men'a gray or white cummer wool underwear, $1.
Fine web patented buckle suspenders, 35c.
We can give you exceptional values today in shoes. We are in receipt of a
lot of ladies' kid and pebble goat shoes at $2 and $2.50 a pair, which are the beat
values we have ever been able to place before this public.
We are closing out a line of ladies'shoes made by Jones & Co., of San Fran
cisco, at $4.50 a pair; we have been selling them at $5; they have been Belling in
town at $6 and $6.50; there ia no choc made at any price that ia superior either in
fit, quality or material; we can recommend them aa the best wearing shoe that
we have ever had.
Our line of $5 shoes, the latest that we have received, are perfect beauties for
fit, workmanship and material; they comprise footwear that any shoe concern
would be proud to place upon a lady's foot.
In men'a shoes we are selling a line of genuine kangaroo button shoes at
$2.45; reduced front $3.75.
The success of this department depends upon the satisfaction that it gives the
public, and the price considered with the article, we feel assured of an increased
and enlarged shoe business. .
