There Is a widespread eras, for low-tirloed Roods and deal ers in line, foreltin-inude hosiery find themselves generally loaded down with big stocks and heavy obliga tions, and little cash to meet them. Bunks will no longer discount paper readily, and when hard pinched for money there Is but one thing left for the Importer, and that is to find a firm that has the ready cash to help him out In exchange for goods on the best terms he can make with them. Thse fuels explain why we are enabled to offer such extraordinary values, for these ure the conditions under which we bought the goods. We may add that the goods offered below are with one exception exuetly the same as regular numbers we curry in stock, and the figures we bought them at are lower than those asked by the manufacturers in Europe, as we know by expe rience.

ELOQUENT ADDRESS OF WELCOME The Cliuuipiou of Protection Shuns a Dixmoiiiou et'lbe lxsues of the Day and foments Hiinncll' with Heuy iiiB Compliments I'pon the Scribes. Canton, O., Sept. S. The Republican Editorial association of Ohio, which Is in session here cal.ed on Governor Mc Kinley this evening. John Hopley, the oldest editor in the state was the spokesman of tile party. Major McKln ley was roundly applauded when he stepped forward to speak. He Bald: Mr. President and gentlemen of the Republican Press Association of Ohio: 1 have been deeply moved by the gra cious words of your venerable spokes man. You could not have chosen one of vour membership to give the expres- slon of the semimunts of your ussoela 1 ttun more pleasing to me than my old honored friend. Air. Hopley. whose er forts in behalf of the Republican party hnve been unceasing for more than forty years. (Applause). Defeat has never discouraged hhn, nor victory unduly elated him. Indeed. I think he is at his best and does his best work when the parjy to which he belongs Is under temporary defeat. I iran only wish for him continued good health and the full measure of those blessings which he has so much en joyed during his long and e vcntful ca reer. (Applause.) It gives me great pleasure, gentlemen, to welcome you antt nil to iny home. I feel sure that you ure familiar with Canton and need no assurance from me un to the cor diality of Its hospitality. You have donj Canton a great honor by your visit and for one I highly appreciate It. as 1 know all of our citizens do. Can ton just now, I judge, is a very fair newspaper town and no newspaper writer or publisher ever comes here who Is not warmly welcomed whether he gels what he conies for (la.mht'T) or not. and no matter what he may say when he goes away, ( Renewed laugh ter and applause.) General Sherman and some of our other officers used to have a way duiing the war of sending certain newspaper men out of camp oc casionally, and perhaps often wished to si-nd them "across the lines." NO ENEMY'S COl'NTKY. We have no sectional or partition lilies. tApplausc.) They have been happily obliterated and no pall of this givui republic can now be justly called "the enemy's country." (Ureal ap plause.) Newspaper men, like every body else, can go freely and speak free ly and write freely on every spot of ground beneath our glorious dug. I feel that 1 know something of the Re publicans editors of Ohio. I cannot re call a time that they have not been faithful and friendly nor can I forget thai. In somo of the closest campaigns in the state their Intelligent and unfal tering support has brought victory. This year they are more earnest, more uggeessive, more thorough and more 'til-lent than they have ever been be fore. They appreciate the overmaster ing importance of the issues in the present contest and are leading, glor iously leading, in the ettcational work which is indispensable to a. proper un derstanding of the questions which di vide us, and right action ultimately at the polls. Gentlemen, It Is a post of singular honor which you occupy today, I can not remember any period, save and ex eept the war when the Republican press so signally represented national honor and national welfare as now. (i.ircat applause). It Is not often given to a political party as it la this year given to ours to stand between na tional honor and dishonor, public faiih and repudiation, and order and dis quiet, t Applause.) It la the good for tune of the Republican party to stand In this contest for what is best in gov ernment, for what Is patriotic in citi zenship, for what the ends to the sup port of the financial Integrity of the iovernnicnl, its credit and its curren cy. It Is n vust responsibility to put upon any party, hut the Republican party is not without trial amidst grave responsibilities. It lias met great trusts before. It hux discharged them, too. wilh wisdom, courage and fidelity and it will meet the new ones with an hon est and unfaltering purpose to serve the best interests of the people and till the people. Fortunately In this contest the flfpuhl!can party Is not alone in its support of the Republican cause. Con servative men of all parties stand with It. It numbers among Its strongest al lies many of the most powerful Demo cratic newspapers east and west, which ure doinng yeoman services for patriot ism and national honor. "They are welcome, thilce welcome, and the coun try owes them a debt of gratitude lor their untliuching loyalty ns against party for sound money and public morals. (Oreat applause). This is a year, gentlemen, of political contention without, bitterness. Intelli gence and Investigation are taking the place of passion and partyism. Party prejudice cuts little figure In a crisis like this. We must not indulge In as persion or crimination against those who may have differed from us In the past, but who are now with us in a pa triotic effort to preserve the good faith of the country and enforce public and private honesty. (Applause). We must not drive anybody out of camp, but welcome everybody in. You doubt less have grown weary of being told of the greatness and power and value of the press, so many times styled the "Preserver of our liberties and the hoim of mankind." It was Bulwer, I believe, who said. "Take away the sword: states can be saved without it; bring the pen." This Is a year for press and pen. The sword has been sheathed. The only force now needed Is the force of reason, and the only power to be Invoked is that of intelligence and patriotism. (Great applause.) Our people have always extended to the presB the most generous patronage and accorded it the greatest deference, so that the press has grown with our growth and advanced with our advance ment. There are nearly as many news papers and periodicals published in the I'niled States as in all the rest of the world besides. To me the modern newspaper Is so vast and comprehensive that I can never contemplate its pos sibilities without becoming both Inter ested and enthusiastic on the subject. Why, to be a real, capable and worthy journalist, wise, honorable and efficient, is to a man the highest plane of human opportunity and usefulness. Live and proclaim truths for truth's sake, to dis seminate knowledge and useful Infor mation, to correct mislinpreBSinns, to enlighten the misinformed, to "feed an expectant and anxious people," with the occurrences of the world dally In deed, almost hourly to discover and correct abuses, to fairly and honorably advocote a great cause in short, to mold and direct public opinion which Is always the mission of Journalists, la purely the noblest of professions. (Great applause.) Poor, it may be, In some parts of the world, despised. It nicy be by the Intolerant and ignorant everywhere, but degraded it never can be, so long as its aim is for the good of the people. OHIO ALWAYS PROMINENT. Ohio has always been prominent in the Held of journalism. That she has been so prominent in politics the press can fairly claim a share, and It' Is en titled to no little credit for a long line of public servants. I need not-remind you of them. You know well the glori ous history of the state and Its contri bution to the country In every field of statesmanship. The press of Ohio has proudly held its own In the march of journalism. The younger men and there are many of them before me to dayhave high methods before them. Their predecessors were honest in con viction, powerful in argument and con tributed most to make our glorious state what it 4s. And our civilization and citizenship is the best in the world. (Applause.) From your ranks have gone forth some of the ablest Journal ists whose Influence and learning have impressed other stales and enriched the literature of the whole country. Some of the old editors still remain wielding the pen of power, and may their lives be lengthened und their splendid example be emulated by eir younger colleagues. (Applause.) I congratulate you upon the high rank of the newspaper press of Ohio and wish for you still higher achievements in your chosen work in broader fields. You never had an opportunity for itgh er usefulness than now and you never had a greater opportunity for the best use of your faculties than in the sup port of the principles and policies whlph are involved In the contest now upon us. 1 congratulate you upon the great work you are doing and appreciate more than I can tell you the kindness and courtesy of this campaign. (Ap plause ) "Gentlemen, It will give me great pleasure to meet nml ifeet each one of you personally." (Great ap I la use. I A short meetint; of the Editorial as sociation was held In inu evening, at which a number of short and Informal speeches were made. Major McKinley's engagements are multiplying so rapidly that he has de cided not to go to Zoar tills week, but will devote the. next two days to the preparation of speeches which he Is to make mi Friday and Saturday.

The Philadel phia delegates who are here say they must go Into convention first before they will declare for either Sobel or Burke. This gives rise to a suspicion that Wanamaker may have a man ti present. Both Sobel and Uurke are shying from the dark horses. This evening the clubs will parade the streets and there will be displays of fireworks with club mass meeting af terwards. The convention will meet to-morrow at It) o'clock in the Opera house.

Hurke. of Piltsburg. who hud the position of the Magee com biners and Isador Sobel of Krie, they decided to support the Kile man. Buike thereupon wlthdrey and Sobel will be the next president of the Pennsyl vania League clubs. Charles F. Har ris of Pittsburg will be the secretary and M. IS. Young of Philadelphia, will be the treasurer for limit her year. SAVING ARMENIANS, 1 1 it in it no Action ol' Consuls Has Pined Them in n Predicament. London, Sept. s. The Constantinople n presetitatlve of the t'nited Associated Presses, telegraphing under date of yesterday, says that during the recent rioting in that city the consuls of the various powers arranged that many Armenians should go on board the dif ferent ships in the harbor, where they would be safe from massacre. This humane action has resulted in a somewhat awkward predicament, as the government now forbids the re landing or transfer of the refugees. A conference of the ambassadors was held today (Monday) regarding the course to be pursued regarding such ruCugees and it was arranged to ap point a mixlcd commission to take charge of the matter.

AN OUTBURST OF ENTHUSIASM Notification Committee of the Na tional Silver Party Arcoitipauieg liryiut from liicago-.Two Brass Hands and n I'lanibcnu t'lub Act us Escorts. Lincoln, Neb., Sept. R. The second home-coming of William Jennings Bryan since his nomination by the Chicago convention was made the oc casion of an enthusiastic outburst by his fellow townsmen that differed from his first reception here as a 'president ial candidate in that It was strictly partislun. It was 10.45 when Bryan's train reached the Burlington station. Sevral thousand people were waiting there and as the nominee stepped to the platform he was given cheers that must have warmed the cockles of his I heart. It was a real western welcome ! thut n-fiti aenrtfriMrl Mr Prvin unit ha showed his appreciation in the beam ing looks he gave the crowds in the station and along the streets. Oov. Hol beomb, James C. Dnleniau, chairman of the Nebraska State Democratic Central Committee; John E. Creswcll, the Omaha capitalist; C. J. Smith, can didate for attorney general on the Democratic and Populist fusion ticket, and a number of other prominent Bryan men joined Mr. Brynn at Omaha and at pluces along the route. At Ashland a large reception committer from Lincoln boarded the train. Among others in the party on its arrival .were George A. Urout, of Oh la. chairman of the notification committee of the National Sliver party, and A. R. Tal bot, Mr. Bryuu's law partner, who Is a candidate for the Nebraska senate on the Republican tl'ket. They came through with the Democratic nominee from Chicago escorted by two brass bauds, the Bryan Flambeau club, its members In white duck uniforms with red helmets, a free sliver club, wear ing silvered capes and the local recep tion committee. Mr. Bryan was con veyed to ills home on "I" street near Seventeenth through the principal streets. Lincoln had made a holiday of the occasion and the sidewalks were crowded with people who shouted as the nominee went by. AFTERNOON MASS MKKTINO. In the afternoon a mass meeting was lield in front of the state capital build ing. A Parade composed of Bryan llainlicau clubs and five silver clubs, some In uniforms and some In plain dress, and Including floats bearing free silver devices and seveial hundred men on horsebuck from neighboring local ities, formed at city hall square nnd escorted Mr. Bryan to the state house. He rode with Mrs. Bryan. Lawrence Humphrey, chuirman of the local re ception committee, and Oenrge A. Urout, chairman of the National silver notification committee, in an open car riage gayly decorated and drawn by four while horses. As the head of the procession neared the capitol grounds a salute was fired by a volunteer bat tery. The stand from which Mr. Bryan spoke had been erected on the north front of tlte state house and was cov ered with bunting and the walls of the building were also decorated. A large Photograph of the nominee above the platform was rivaled by many litho graphs of McKlnley and Hobart, which some of the Republican state olllce holders had placed in the windows of their offices. Among those who had seats on the stage were John A. Crelgh lon, of Omaha; John A. Martin, of .Missouri, who was sergeuut-at-arnis of the Democratic national committee; Coventor Holcomb, of Nebraska; Igna tius Donnelly Chairman C.eorge A. Urout und a number of the silver party committee. Five thousand people crowded around the stage and cheered repeatedly as Mr. Bryan appeared. He was introduced by E. K. Brown, a for mer Republican and president of the Columbia national bank of Lincoln. Mr. Bryan said: BRYAN'S SPEECH. Laities and Oentlemen: It Is now just about one month since I left Nebraska and turned eastward. It has beea an in teresting trip. 1 want to assure you that the sentiment In favor of the free cotn ur" of silver is a growing sentiment. (Ap plause). It far surpassed my expecta tions in the eust and I found among tlimn people the producers of wealth, the farm, ers and the laborers who are Joining with you to free themselves from the domina tion of those tlnanelul Influences which have controlled our legislation and our financial policies. (Applause). You will ilnd in the very shadow of Wall street as bitter hatred to the Influences from which you have suffered ns you will find nnimig lite farmers of Nebraska. (Applause). And ull through the east 1 found farmers who had been Republicans who were openly supporting the free coinage of sli ver and were asserting that they had as much right to attend to their business us the New York bunker had to attend to his business, (Applause). Another thing I had noticed, and that Is the intense earn estness that characterizes this campaign. I have not found a luke warm man any where. They have been for ns, or against ns. And they have been earnestly for us or against us. 1 am glad to see that, be cause, my friends, politics is a serious bus iness, when you confront such Issues as confront the American people now. (Cries of "That's right.") My frlemls, If those connected with trusts are flocking together in the Republi can party may we not appeal to all the smaller business men who 'have felt the Iron heel of the trust and who have be in driven out of business by Its unlawful competition, (Oreat applause). If we ure to lose all the attorneys of these great trusts (a cry of "let them go") may we not appeal with confidence to the support of the people who have been plundered by these trusts und their attorneys have re ceived a part of the plunder. (Cheers and houts of "yes.") Mr. Bryan continuing said that when he waa called a disturber of the public peace It ,was gratifying to meet the toilers of his own city who endorsed him as one they were willing to trust. He said he expected a majority of this, Lancaster county, and a majority of not less than 25,000 In Nebraska, He thought even this majority waa not large enough. Prolonged cheering fol lowed and the assemblage dispersed. BRYAN NOTIFIED. The National Silver party, through Its regularly appointed committee to night formally notified William- J. Bryan of his nomination by its con vention at St. Louis. The ceremonies attending the notification were held on the plaza and lawn In front of Ne braska's state capitol building.

When Mr. Bryan ap peared on the platform the crowd which hod Increased with great rapid ity after the procession waa under way, cheered him repeatedly as his .well known figure was recognized.

She Was im Company wilh Him and Tells a Garbled I p Story of How It llnppeuedHis Condition Is Very Critical Spot Where the Shootiug Took Place Is I'nknowu. Frank Schults, a hostler in Gorman's livery stable, was shot through the left breast at 11 o'clock last night while out driving: with Cella Clark, an in mate of the house of assignation at 313 Center street. Sennits is now in a critical condition at the Lackawanna hospital, and tho girl is a prisoner lu the police- station. His condition waa so critical last night that he could not furnish the police with definite Information aa to the cause of the shooting or by whom It was done, if he knows. She is wil fully lying: about the case, and con sequently there Is much mystery en shrowdins: it. Schults came here from Ithaca lost Christmas und was employed In Gor man's livery since. He Is about 35 ysars old, unmarried and Is dissipated. Af ter supper yesterday he gt a few dollars from his employer and startjed out to have- a good time. He met th trlrl Clark at Moris' saloon on the corner of Penn avenua and Spruce street about 8 o'clock, and a llttl later he telephoned to tne Btable mhere he worked and ordered a horse and carriage. His order was not promptly obeyed and he went tj the stable and got the outfit. Then he drove again to Moris' saloon anil there the girl got tn the carriage with hint. They went in the direction of Green Ridge. AHKKD FOR A DOCTOR. About 11.15 o'clock Joseph A. Cross, of Lee court, and his uncle, Wlllin.ni Roberts of Furvlew, Luserne county, who Is visiting him, were on tnelr way north on Washington avenue. At th-l corner of Olive street they Baw a car riage containing a man and a wo man. The .woman shouted to them to get a doctor and ut the same time she jumped out of the vehicle. Cross approached closer and the man told him to get in and drive him to the hospital, that he was shot. Without watting further, Cross obeyed and drove tftikikly to the Lackawanna hospital. On the way down Schults grew weak and acted as If he was about to die. As soon as Cross left him in charge of the doctors, he brought the carriage back to Gorman's stable. Schults had told him where it belonged. Frank Stem, who works at the stable, and who hitched the outfit, noticed when the buggy came back that a Buf fula robe and an ordinary horse blanket that he placed In the buggy were miss ing. He went with Cross to the police station and they told about the shooting to Lieutenant John Davis, who immedi ately telephoned to the residence of Chief of Police Kobllng, who hurried to headquarters. THK GIRL ARRESTED. The arrest of the girl occasioned no little excitement. From young Stem the police learned who she was. Patrol men Bloch, Palmer, May and Flaherty went down to Center street ti find her at No. :il5. When they got to the door it was locked, but it didn't take long to open It. Patrolman Bloch went up stairs to look for the girl and he caught sight of her endeavoring to escape through the skylight in the roof or through some kind of a hatchway. After an exciting chase over the roofs he captured her und brought her to the lockup. The other officers stood guard to see that Pile would not get away while Block was chasing her. She was very nervous und highly ex citable and told Impossible and con flicting stories. She said they were driving along Washington avenue be yond the county Jail, the reins In her hands, and without warning two men came out from behind a dark place shaded with small trees, and they held them up aa if to rob them of their money. Whether they were bent on robbery or not she could not state, be cause they made no demand for money, and In fact said nothing, but fired three shots. KEAUZRD HE WAS SHOT. They drove along as quickly as they could until they met Cross and his un cle at the corner of Olive street and Washington avenue. She doesn't know who did the shooting, she snys; it waw dark ami the men came out of the shade without warning and without saying a word and fired the shots. She remembers that three shots were fired, but cannot tell whether they were tired by the same person. As to the absence of the lap robe and blanket from the buggy when It was returned to the livery stable, she as serts she cannot account for their dis appearance. She steadfastly proclaims that she or h were not out of the car riage once after leaving the corner of Penn avenue and Spruce street. There was a halter and a broken strap on the horse when it came back to the stable, and the halter looked as If the horse broke atwuy and got frightened at something while tied. THEORY OF THE POLICE. The police theory is that he couple were out of the buggy and that they were watched by someone who made a mistake in their identity. It is believed the unknown assailant shot to kill but fired the bullet Into the body of the wrong man. It Is too unlike ly a theory that the affray would hava occurred without any mure provoca tion that the girl gives In her story. The police think possibly that a cer tain young man who acted In the capacity of lover to Miss Clark, fol lowed Schults and herself out and shot him. The condition of Schults nt 3 o'clock this morning was unchanged. Drs. Blanchard and Fish found when he came in that the bullet had entered his breast above the heart and had pierced the left lung. They made no attempt to probe for the lead or locats it.
