Theliberal patronage bestowed^upon us by the public shows us^that they appreciate our efforts^to establish what has been^hitherto unknown in this city,^viz: A One Price Strictly Cash^Store. We claim, and are willing^to back our claim substantially^that we are selling goods cheaper^than any store in Butte. And^we should, for as we are doing a^strictly cash business wc do not^have to make those who do pay^(or what they buy, pay for those^who'do not. Neither do we have^to employ collectors ana pay^them a percentage of what they^collect, nor bookkeepers at large^salaries. All of these things^combined show our expenses to^be a smaller percentage than any^of our competitors in consequence^of which it stands to reason that^we can sell our ^joods at a smaller^profit than they can. OVERCOATS Theweather is against us for^the sale of these goods and the^only way to avoid carrying them^over is to put a pi ice on them^that people cannot resist. We^are selling for $5x0 a good heavy^waim ulster, an article worth^fully half is much again and for^jfio.co a neat dressy chinchilla^sack coat in blue or brown. For^$15.00 we offer a brown Melton^overcoat, well made and war^^ranted to l ist fully two seasons. For$ 18.00 we have a steel gray^cassimere, one of the cheapest^coats in our stock well worth^^25.00 of any man's money; also^a brown frieze coat, neat fitting^and well made, w ith a tine flannel^lining. In the higher grades we^have all qualities and styles and^can only say ^Come and Sec^Them'' for the must be seen to be^appreciated. PensionLawyers Can Mo Longer Ply^Their Profitable Trade. SUITS.

In the meantime^the broken lines must go. Our^profits go with them, but we do^not object to that as we must not^carry any odd suits. We have^cut the price of these suits from^20 per cent, to 25 per cent, and if^teat does not sell them wc will^give up, but we think it will. In^these lines we have not only the^cheaper class of goods but some^we were selling at $22.00, $25.00^and $30.00. These goads are^now cut to $15.00, jiiK.oo and^$20.00.

Noble^tins attempted to win public favor by sac^^rificing the pension sharks who have been^the allies of the republicans for many^years. They have got rich, and they are^getting very ^sassy.^ Dockery'. amend^^ment will save $5,000,000 to the soldier*^in three yeurs. No |^ensioner needs an^attorney. The agent does only what ths^pension office is bound to do. The agent^is an impertinence who makes money off^the soldiers' ignorance of the way the^pension office does business. Noble ought^not to have waited ^o long to say so. Cartermanaged to do something fat^Montana to-day when the house was^passing the senate resolution to authorize^the issue of arms to some of the western^states alarmed about the threatening at^^titude of the Indians. Carter secured the^addition of Montana to the lists of states^that are to receive the arms. Then-is very little prospect that Butto^will get an appropriation for a buildiug^this season. The appropriation commit^^tee is running things very close and it^will not permit the committee on public^buildings to make many appropriations^for new buildings.

Washington,Dec, ft. -Ciitcheon of^Michigan called up the senate joint reso^^lution authorizing the secretary of war to^issue 1,0111 stand of arms to each of the^states of North and South Dakota, Wyom^^ing and Nebraska. On motion of Carter^of Montana. Montana was included in the^joint resolution, which then passed. Outhwaiteof Ohio referred to yester^^day's talk about the commissioner of pen^^sions, and criticised the conduct of that^officer in the recent campaign. Cutcheonsuggested that Commissioner^Hlark had taken part in a congressional^election. Outhwaite replied that if Black^had done such things as Ratlin had done,^he should have been brought to justice^for it. He then proceeded to reproach^the republican house witli shirking its^duty, arguing that the (wilding hill would^show a deficiency of more than thirty-two^millions. Dockerysaid a few months ago he stood^on this lloor anil declared that the repub^^licans were refusing, for party purposes,^to appropriate within etn.OOO.oUU of the^amount required for pensions under the^existing law. This declaration was al^^most substantiated by the fact that the^commissioner now came asking for a de^^ficiency of $1(4,5^ 10,01)0. Dockerythen branched into a discus^^sion of the general financial condition of^the country, presenting tables to show^that there will be a deficiency on July 1,^1 ^'^.', of more than ^f7,MJ0,(U). He said^that this did not include any deficiency^for the llscal years l*!'l or except the^pension deficiency. Breckinridgeof Kentucky said this was^not a question as to whether the present^commissioner had taken part^in the recent campaign, or whether^the former commissioner was^guilty of the charges made against him.^The |^oint was that the probabilities are^that within seven years there will be^1,000,000 MaeMH on the rolls who will^U^ paid cl'O.OOO.OOO annually. 'I he first^necessity was to meet the question frankly^by adequate appropriations; second, to^have the committee investigate the bureau^thoroughly, have the list revised and^strike out unworthy |iensioners; third, to^transfer the bureau tothe war department^and take it out of the domain of politics.^Here were people staggering tinder bur^^dens that had so distressed them that^they were seeking new alliances. Let^congress meet the matter frankly. Detersof Kansas made an exhaustive^argument to show that the appropriation^curried by the bill was amply sufficient.^The democratic party was always flooded^with tears in behalf of soldiers when it^was out of power, but when it was in^power it was quite a dilTorent thing. The^democratic party was endeavoring to em^^brace the Fanners' alliance movement.^He conceded that the republican party in^Kansas had run against this movement^and received a black eye. Hut the time^was coming when a cyclone would strike^the democratic states. The republican I^party would revive because ^truth^crushed to the earth will rise again.^^He wanted the Fifty-second congress to^pass the sub-treasury bill, the free^coinage bill and the service |h nsmn lull;^and unless bis democratic friends would I^do all that, they would find a wave of the^Farmers' alliance would wipe them from ,^the face of the earth. Riggsof California made a humorous^speech in the interest of an increased ap^^propriation which would prevent the de^^ficiency l^eing thrown upon the demo^^cratic house. He created hearty laughter^when in conclusion he ejaculated: ^Ask^the people of California who stands fore^^most among them, W. W. Morrow or^Marion Biggs and Ihe answer will lie^Riggs by rAoon majority. Illconcluding the debate Morrow of^California argued that the ainoiititcarried^by the bill was all. if not more than all.^that will he required by the pension^bun an during the coming year.

OpiumSmugglers Said to Havs Item Very^Successful For Six Tears Fast. Wt-.HlM.ton, Dec. f^. - Supervising Spc-^cial Agent Tingle, in his annual rc|mrt,^says: ^While in attendance on the con^^ference of consuls general of the Culled^States in Kurope, called to consider the^practical workings of thecustoms'admin^^istration, I was strongly impressed with^the wisdom and the necessity for the^strongest enforcement of that act. Had^further proof bei n^would have been found tionsin the Kuropeau press admit- I Jose^ting that invoicts were systematically I In^and intentionally undervalued; and de-^ploring the fact that under the new pro^^visions of the law these evasions could no^longer be safely continued. It also has^lieen brought prominently to my notice^that while the citizens of these countries^were enjoying large profits upon their de^^ceptive and illicit importations into the^Cuited States, American products were^unreasonably and invidiously proscrilicd^and made to feel the rigor of their com-^] mereial laws. Tingleexpressed the opinion that more^! than half of the prepared opium con^^sumed in the country during the past six^years hail been smuggled. It is believed,^h^ says, thnt an internal revenue tax of^1 not more than $5 per pound on the pre-^1 pared article of crude opium and a cor^^responding duty upon the smoking opium^imported, would practically put an end to^| smuggling.

Theallusions to Barrttndia's personal^safety, Uiiner says, were, at his request,^promised the night before by the presi^^dent. Subsequently lie received a tele^^gram from Commfidcr Reiter of the^navy, acknowledging (iuatemala's right^over the steamer, and requesting the^minister to obtain permission from the^government to return Barrundia to Mi x-^n o in the 1 betis. The minister of foreign^relations positively declined to accede to^this request. All the circumstances and^llarrimdia's well-known hostility to the^republic and his attempted invasion from^Mexico, Miiner says, decided his course^and he accordingly iu res|siuse to a r^^-^qucsl for written and not telegraph or^^ders sent faptaift Pitts' letter advising^the captain jo submit to the an. -t of his^passenger. On the following day. Com^^mander Reiter telegraphed Harrunila's^death w hile rc-isting arrest. I'nderdateofSepteinlier J:i, iu a letter^to Blaine, klixner Justifies his course and^says on the lHih he ralhsl on the minister^of foreign relations for an explanation^of the affair. In the interview the min^^ister stated with emphasis that^his government had given positive orders^to take Barrundia from Arspulco even to^the sinking of the ship, notwithstanding^that it might involve a conflict with our^two war vessels. This, he said, would have^been an exercise if the undoubted right^of his government over Its own waters, in^which he was confident that the laws of^the nation would have sustained him.^Miiner says lie had never heard these^orders before. He then gives the decis^^ion of Secretary Bayard in the Gomez-^Mexican case in support of hii action,^and concludes: Iconfidently add that nothing will^tend so much to the establisment of per^^manent p'-.i. .- in 'i-,, republics as a^plain declaration that our fleet of steam^^ers cannot bo used m local waters as an^asylum for revolutionist*. Thecorres|^oiidetice closes with a letter^from Blaine to Mizner, dated November^Is, iu which he reviews the case at length^anil says: ^The more the question is ex^^amined in the light of mi, -tii.t facts^tardily disclosed, the deeper becomes the^regret that you so far exceeded your le^^gitimate authority as to sign a |^apcr^which in the builds of officers of Guate^^mala became their warrant for the^capture of Barrundia.^ In the^rase of Gomez which Miiner^offers as an excuse for his conduct.^Blaine fails to find any support of Mi^^ner's action : ^1 am aware,^ sayn Blaine,^^that it may he said that utter all you^merely advised the captain of his duly.^But the captain did not simply seek ad^^vice. In his telegram from Chani|ierico^he says that on his arrival at San Jose he^will place himself under the orders of the^American minister. Me again telegraphed^needed it ! to you later from Chsuiperiro that he was^in publicn- wailing your instruct Ions, and at San^he expected your written orders,^his last telegram to you,^dis|^atehcd from San Jose on arriving at^that port on the evening of Aug ..t .'. I..-^categorically inquires: 'Shall I deliver^General Barrundia to the authorities^here'.' If so, please send me letter with^your signature lo that effect.' There is^not here the slightest suggestion that^Captain Pitta proponed to act otherwise^than by your order and your responsibib^ity. It was under these circumstances^that you wrote the letier which became iu^the hands of the Guatemalans a pretext^for the attempted seizure of Barrundia.'' Thesecretary sayn through Mlzner's ac^^tion the naval force of the United States^in these waters thus became an acquies-^cient spectator of the event*. ^Although^the merchant vessel Cuited Stale* waa^then lying under the muzzle of guns^manned by men, as you state, and had^reason to believe,who were prepared to re^^sort to any act of violence, even as Senor^Auguino has sinre declared to you, to the^sinking of the ship, notwithstanding that^it might have involtwd conflict^with our two wnr vesael* then and^there present, I am not disposed,^^continues Hlsine, ^to pay undue^regard to these post facto threats which^are now reported to Ifat department. I^prefer to think that by hi* extravagant^language, MMMtrolM by the actual^presence of the problem which he was^permitted to solve n much to his satis^^faction, Senor Aiig'nti^ ha* done injus^^tice to his own ^i-ns, ' humanity. To^have sunk the A. ai. .h with bar freight^of innocent hv, ^ in the elocution of a^pur|iose for tho a^ 'inplishment of^which nothing bui unlawful ami^invalid excusei have so far been^advanced, would hart ^ ' n an act of^savage warfare, and I am instructed by^the president to say that he earnestly^trusts the time will i.en r come when the^course of events In GuataOMawCff the de^^clared purpose of her rules will constrain^this government to insure the safety of its^merchant vessels SO let Df the waters of adviceand consent to the surrender of^Barrundia, he had made it the basis of s^suggestion to Commander Reiter to oiler^him hospitably on board ihe Hanger^^ hi. n or without the waters of Guate^^mala, and with or without the consent of^ber government, his action would have^had sanction of humane and recognized^precedents. Blaine closes his letter as fol^^lows: ^In mora than one occasion this gov-^i eminent has permitted iu legations and^shin* of war to offer hospitality to politi^^cal refugees.
