illilll rk. vs. 1st.1 «jW w*A VOLUME t, t£eA frS? & P: fa\ ra STORE OPENS, The Balle-Brodersen Co. Soon to be Moved. OPENS ON NEXT MONDAY. iFinest Store Bui'ding in. Iowa Outside of Des Moines Will be Ready For Denison Shoppers July 17th. From time to time- we hive .aken occa sion to speak of the magnificent new store building being erected by the Balle-Bro dersen Co., and we feel that it is only proper that at this tim?. just prior to the opening of the new store, something more should be said about this great enterprise which gives an adced distinction to Deni son. After many months of labor the new store is completed already many depart ments have been opened up and by Mon day the entire business will be in its new home. We have spoken advisedly when we have called this the finest merchaatila business place in Iowa outside of Des Moines. There may be stores having more floor space, but there is not another store in any town in Iowa except at the State Capital that is finer or more com plete in all its arrangements, both for the handling and displaying of goods, the dis patch of business, or the comfort.of pa trons ifef. Perhaps time will develop that some v*/" thing has been omitted or forgotten, but &.,at present itsjems as if the building was perfect. The building is 80x105. two stories and a full basement. The building as it ji 'stands, represents a cost of approximately fj $40,000 The basement contains the heating If? a plant, much warehouse room, potato bins a huge refrigerator, a room especially -fitted for the sale of fish, a room reserved for the handling of county produce and the grocery department proper. Farmers ,can drive into the basement, unload their produce, and load with heavy merchan dise with great convenience. The grocery department is fitted through out with the McNaught patent grocery fixtures and is a model of convenience. There is a side entrance to the grocery department from Main Street as well as Staits' lel^nf-froTB the njain Under the area way are the patent registering tanks containing kerosene. The first door is all one large room and presents a beautiful appearance from the. main entrance, which is on the corner of Main Street and Broadway. The shelv ing and fixtures are all of quarter sawed oak and every detail has been carried out on this same scale of expense and beauty. The counters are resplendent in mirrors and cut glass and the low shelving allows one to see the entire store at a glance Specially designed show cases have been provided for notions, ribbons, patterns and other specialties. This floor is de »voted to the sals of dry goods, drers goods, while in the rear is the hardware ^•""department and running south from the west entrance is the furnishing depart ment shoes the cigar case and all that will .^especially interest the gentlemen. Tha balcony is one of the attractive feature* of the store. The balcony runs along the rear end of the main floor and this part of it is reserved for the office of the £rm but the balcony on thetast side is to be the paradise of the ladies, the place for busy chats, for tired.mothers, a rest room, a public benefaction long needed in Den ison. It is luxuriantly furnished and connected with it are large and com modious toilet rooms. The second floor is to be devoted to ready-to-wear garments, millinerv( carpets, rugs, curtains etc. while the rear is to be used for a reserve stock room The above is but a meagre outline of the interior of the handsome pressed brick structure. The Luxfor prisms s.erve to make the whole store as bright as day while the many lights make a dazzling dis play at night. There is a bulletin, board provided, a public telephone booth, a drinking fountain and mnny other ap pointments for the comfort of patrons. The stock to be carried is a large one, it includes everything from a cambric needle to a white elephant—dry goods, In conclusion we' wish to congratulate the gentlemen composing the firm on their enterprise. Their success has been found ed on the universal belief in their honesty integrity and fair dealing. They have established a reputation for absolute re liability in all they say and do and it Is tais which has made the new store possi ble, k$&I* A v,&^, vci^*vtwi«-' «»'iyn»y)" dress goods, millinery cloaks and ready to provement is impossible without the aid wear garments, notions, jewelry, druggists sundries, groceries, cigars, fruits, fish both fresh and salted, shelf hardware, hats, caps, shoes, men's furnishings, carpets, rugs, curtains.

We do not believe the new store will swallow up all the trade of Denison., People will never be content with one place to trade no matter how fine it may be, and there will always be room for ths otlv first class stores Denison is fortunate to have among its business,houses. We do think however that the new store, together with the strong competition kn-jwn to exist here will draw' trade from an ever increasing territory ana thus inure to the benefit of every merchant in town. Council Bluffs,, Om'-tha, Sioux City. Fort Dodga have nothing better to off.'r an3 Denison is bound to become the Mecca for shoppers for thirty miles^arcund. We have but one prediction to mike in reference to the new store ws are willing to go on rcjcoid that by 19!= thepresentquirters will not be largi enough and that the building will either be extended 45 feet to :he alley or additional ware house room built in some other location. A "SQUARE DEAL' The Bulletin flies into a fit of petty temper, resurrects its "Silly Bill" font of type and oils up its smut machine, all because the REVIEW made the very op timistic error of thinking that the Bullin" tin intended to live np to its newly adopt ed motto. It is to be regretted that newspaper dis cussion on a high plane is impossible in Dsnisoa. The Bulletin absolutely refuses to see anything in any discussion of any questioa or of any polisy except a person, al attack If we question any proposition made by the Bulletin, if we venture to differ with it along any line, the all con viocing reply is-Silly Billy-mud, mud.mwj perhaps this is the best that the Bulletin can do, and if so, we should not criticise but should pity and condole. If the REVIEW might brave the inevi table mnd-bath hjwever, it would call at tention to two instances in the Bulletin's very article on the subject wherein that paper shows itself unfitted to wear a "square deal'' motto. We pass utterly as puerile the personal attack, leaving the question of its ''square dealing" to the readers cf both papers. We would call attention to the Bulletin statement that Parker did not stand for a square deal last fall. Mr. Parker has done nothing since the election there have no new developments in his character since that time, The Bulletin must have known, and in fact did know, last fall, whea with every issue it urged its readers to "vote for Parker", '"Vote for Parker" that Par ker did not stand for a square deal and that is was proving false to itself by urg ing the peop'e to vote for such a man. What kind of a "square deal" was that? Again the Bulletin says "in its violation (the violation of the square dsall Roose velt will go down in defeat and disgrace". What kind of a square deal is this? The President, tried condemned and sentenced for offenses yet to be committed We allow the meanest criminal a squarer deal than that. It is a principle of juris prudence that every man is to be consid ered innocent until he is proven guilty. But the Bulletin with the ''square deal" motto waits not for facts nor testimony of any kind but, in advance, cooly condemns to everlasting disgrace the man in whom the people have more confidence than in any ether President since Washington So muck for the "square deal'' as it finds ex pression in the column of our contempory. Let us add one word, the above criticism applies to the Bulletin as a newspaper, not to its editor as a man. We have not called him names nor have we impugned his personal motives. There is no occasion for epithet or abuse. E issue of the RE VIEW contains fifty per cent more ws thao does the Bulletin. The RBVIBW has made a net gain of more than 100 subscribers in the past three months and its list is nearly 500 larger than it was Jan. 1, I905 Hav ing succeeded so well in the contest of merit, it is no wonder that we decline most emphatically to go back to the mud slinging in which the Bulletin delights and in which it is so thoroughly at home. The RBVIBW expects to enter into discussion from time to time but it will not meet the Bulletin on its chosen field. Attorney Jerome during a speech recently delivered in Kansas makes the statement that the trust is not an un mitigated evil. He intimates that what ever the trust touches improves in quality and incidentally advances in price. He declares that industrial progress and im- of trust capital. He says that the de plorable feature of the growth of trusts is the tendency to influence politico that they are not content with controlling our commercial affairs, but seek to extort gifts from the people by directing our public officials, including judges and ex ecutives. There may be some grounds for regarding the commercial benevo lence of the tru-ts with incredulity, and it is highly probable that the welfare of the public never entered into their delibera tions of plans for amalgamation and con tol dation of interests, except as it might contribute to their advantage. III'IT" &&1 vi^^m rnm^simSm •r •.^•aK-) .- ssfil?" THE DENISON REVIEW REVIEW BUYS PRESS This Paper Invests in a Brand New Newspaper Press. IMPROVED CRANSTON MAKE. Growing Business Makes Purchase of a Twelve Hundred Dollar Press Necessai There is joy in the heart of every person connected with the REVIEW force bec-iuse the purchase of a brand new $i2co. press his been completed. For months the REVIEW has labored under a moit serious handicap in that its press was slow and did not do satisfactory work. Press day was a night-mare for everyone having to do with the issue of the paper Since the firs', day of January THE REVIEW list has increased not less than five hundred. It is necessary for' us to print upwards of 2100 copies each' week and with a slow press this was was seemingly an interminable taslr. Then too it was well-nigh heart-break ing to work one's best to get out a good newsy paper and then hive it spoiled in the printing. THE REVIEW has adopted the policy of buying nothing but new machinery in the future. When the new press arrives al most every machine in the office will be practically new and with the largest type equipment of any office in western Iowa we feel that we will be able to turn out as good work as can be found. The* improved Cranston is a heavy machine, its shipping weight is more than ten thousand pounds and is warranted to print our present edition in a little more than an hour Printers will understand when we say that it has rack and cam and table distribution, air springs, tapeless Uelivery, back-up, slitter etc When it is installed we would be pleased to have cur readers call and see it and we will tell them what all these things are. We ex pect to be able to instill the new press vithin a month, and after we have set it up and in running order we promise that the REVIEW shall reach its readers promptly on time and be in every town in the county on Thursday morning in time for the rural carrier?. For a ''trashy'' no account paper the REVIEW seems to be doing pretty well and its readers'seeth satisfied as the growing list goes to prove. With the worry of the mechanical de partment largely relieved we can devote more effort to the news and editorial de partments and make the REVIEW still better. In all this we ask the co-opera tion of our subscribers. We have large payments to make on our press as soon as installed and it would really be a considerable favor if our subscribers would remtmber us now with their sub scription money. PLEASES THE PEOPLE. Daily dispatch to the State Register and Leader from Dayton says: Congressman J. P. Conner gave a fine address here this forenoon before one of the best crowds ever assembled on the park association grounds He gave a strong arraignment of public officials who seek their positions only for the purposes of graft, holding that the public official should retire from office as he entered, pure in heart and purpose in behalf of his country's interests, invul nerable to the temptation of private gain. What the country needs more than any thing else in its selection of men is abso lute purity of pur^se. The question of public graft is the deepest problem before the American people today, and only men of strict integrity should be entrusted with the care of the government's inter ests. Judge Conner's address was listened to with the closest attention, his telling declarations for the manhood of the pub lic man receiving the hearty approval of all. It was his first visit at this place, and all were pleased with his magnificent effort." SETTLED OUT OF COURT. The charge of rape preferred against Rev. R. W. Meeker of Dunlap, on wh'ch he was confined in the jail of Crawford county, was settled out of court last week by the consent of the prosecuting witness. Just the basis of a settlement of so ser ious a charge we do not know. It would appear to us, however, either that the charge should never have been pre' ferred or that it should have been pushed. The seduction case against Harry Le Beall wis also settled by the marriage of the interested parties before Justice Gu lick. ADVERTISED LETTER I 1ST.
