We Do Not Handle Or sell worthless, rotten, moth-eaten auction stuff at any price, or keep it in our store to deceive the people with. We do not make a great hue and cry over a cheap pair of suspenders for five cents, and then ask twenty dollars for a suit of clothes worth only ten. These and other similar schemes belong to a class of dealers who are constantly scheming to deceive the public and who have no business reputation to lose. It is a well-known and thoroughly es tablished fact that we handle the very best goods manufactured and cater to the best trade. And those who want the best articles can buy them of us at less figures than they have to pay the aforesaid dealers for slop made cheap trash. WE SELL MORE OVERCOATS!

WE SELL MORE ITS for MEN, BOYS and CHILDREN THAN ANY OTHER HOUSE IN THE WEST, Because we have earned a wide reputation for superiority in trim, fit and price of these goods.

Our store room is entirely too small for the immense stock we carry. Goods for the holiday trade take up lots of room, and as we have only four weeks to sell hol iday goods in, we must make some sacrifices in order to make room for our Christmas dis plays. Our prices on flannels have been unusually low this season, our sales thus far showing a heavy increase on our last year's business. For this week we have cut the prices 20 per cent, below our regular selling price. Our custom flannels are cut this week 20 per cent, below our selling price. On our dress goods, of which we have an unusually attractive line, we will also give you a dis count of 20 per cent, from our former prices. These prices will really bring these goods below the cost of manufacture. On our underwear, men's, ladies' and children's, we will reduce the prices 25 per cent., as the unusual warm weather has retarded our sales, and we do not wish to carry these goods over another season. Table linens, towels, and all housekeeping goods, all re duced. "We must have the room for our grand holiday display. Blankets and comforts share in the same reduction. We will sell them very cheap during this week.

Almost Three-Fourths of the Busi ness Men Plainly Favor the Cause. Expressions on the Subject Secured from Every Man Maintaining a Place of Business, A Large Majority of tie Other Citizens in Favor of Again Voting on the Ques tion Topeka's Local Meatlnspeo-tionLa-w to be Tested Wilder and the Insurance Com paniesState Items. Special Dispatch to the Daily Eacla. Rush Center, Kan.. Nov. 2L I want to call your attention to the unreliability of the resubmission interviews published by the Hutchinson News, if the Ru-h Center item of yesterday is a sample. Its corres pondent says: "In an interview witn the leading business aud professional men of the town we fiud that they would not be in favor of resubmission." Then follows the names of eighteen men who have ex pressed themselves as opposed. Of the eighteen three do not live in the city, six nre neither business or professional men, two are preachers, and one is erroneously classed. As a fact, of the thirty-seven persons who actually maintain places of busiuess, including the station agent, justice of the peace and postmaster and two capitalists, and exclusive of employes and laborers, twenty-six are in favor of resubmission, ten are opposed and one non-committal. Nearly all those excluded in this count are resubmissionists. When an anti-re-submissionist goes in quest of information and is careful to interview mainly those who agree with him he can make appear ances very deceptive. Another peculiarity of the situation is, that among the resubtmssionists are many who use little or no liquor, while on the other side are found some who do not propose to let prohibition deprive them of their full share and who were never known to refuse an invitatiou.

The provis ional government has issued a decree es tablishing universal suffrage throughout the republic THE LEAGUE EXPLAINS. A Statement to the Public Begarding the Brotherhood's Action- Philadelphia, Pa.. Nov. 21. The com mittee which was appointed at the recent annual meeting of the National league of professional clubs to prepare an address to the public defining the position of that or ganization in the present base ball con troversy, completed its labors today. The committee consisted of A. G. Spalding of Chicago, J. B. Day of New York, and John I. Rogers of Philadelphia. The text of the address is as follows: To the Public: The National League of Professional Baseball clubs has no apology to make for its existence or for its untarn ished record of fourteen years. It is to this organization that the player of today owes the dignity of his profession and the mag nificent salary he is guaranteed while playing in its rank. The good name of this league has been assailed, its motives impugned aud its integrity questioned by some of the very men by whom it has most benefitted. The National league, there fore, asks the public to compare the following statement of facts with the selfish and malicious accusation of its assailants. The -national league was organized in 1S7C us a necessity to revive the g.tnio from its slough of cor ruption and disgrace, aud take from the hands of ball players who had controlled and dominated the national association of professional ball players. The league, upon its organization, abolished pool sell ing and open betting on its grounds, aud prohibited Sunday games. "At the. annual meeting of the league m November 1S87, tho brotherhood asked and received recognition upon the statement of its representatives that it wan organ ized for benevolent purposes and desired to co hand in hand with the league. They disavowed any intention or desire to inter fere with the business affaire of the league, the salaries of players or the "nserve Mile," simply asking that the contract be so revised that it in itself would indicate every lesolution between the ciub nnd each individual player. This brotherhood contract when accepted and adopted has never been violated by the league, either in letter or spirit and we challenge proof in contradiction of this declaration. Under false promises to their brother players that they would only secede m the event of the league refusing tbem justice, they secured the signature of the latter to a secret pledge or oath to desert their clubs at the bidding of their dissatis fied leaders. Upon the publication of their plot September 7, 1SS9. they and their abet tors denied, day after day, that there was any foundation for tho story and repeated ly plighted their words that the league should have a chance to redress their al leged grievances before they would order a 'strike.' "The national league hereby claims to the public that the national game will still, under its auspices, progress onward and upwards despite the efforts of certain overpaid players to again control it, for their own acgregandizement, but to its ultimate dishonor and disentregation. "By order of the national league of pro fessional base ball clubs. A. G. Spalding, John B. Day, John I. Rogers Committee. Philadelphia, November 21, l&s'J." IJROTHERHOOD league players. CHICAGO, IIL, Nov. 21. Fred Pfeiffer tonight handed the Associated Pr$8 rep resentative the following names of men who have signed the brotherhood agree ment and will play with the Chicaco players, Nitional league club, next season: Hugh Duffy. James Ryan, Charley Far rell. Dell Darling, John K. Tenor. M. E. Baldwin. Charles King, Frank Dwyer, Charles Bastian, W. A. Latham, Ed. N. Williamson and N. F. Pfeiffer. BROTHERHOOD MEN TALK. Chicago, ill., Nov. 21. Immediately upon the receipt of the telegraphed "ad dress to the public" of the League base , ball managers tonight, the Associated Pres secured an interview with a number of the old reliable League ball players now in the city, and who are Brotherhood men. They all spoke in about the same strain. Fred Pfeiffer, for example, after smil ingly reading the "adLress," said: "Well, I must say the self-glo-nfied magnates throw bouquets at themselves in great style; but they tell too much. They say they have rescued the came from an awful slough and the same breath acknowledge thev have done it with the very men who are now starting In for theinsehes. "TLe only question," con tinued Mr Pfeiffer, "is one that can only be answered by the public and that is whether the Brotherhood men are not as cap ible as ever of continuing in the good worn thee people acknowledge thty have done to elevate the game. "Yes. I Hte they call the new departure a plot. Well, wh are prepared to prove that the brotherhood never made any arrangement f any kind until after the refusal of Mr Spalding to call a confer ence. Tee existing status of affairs is the outgrowth of the refuel and that the players were jnsttned in asking for the conlerence is more than proven by the fact that the league ha.s now eliminated from their contract the obnoxious classification rule and has moderated the Vale' svsteni. Thev y the rumors as to play- j er-' plans were repeatedly denied. I wish i to ay that it is truth ana to adrt mat t&e man who did it is the very man wno the league managers are now using a a tool to rebuild their 'grand moral edifice.' You can just say as a wind up tnat the gentle men under whose auspice really the pro gress onward ana upward of the national game has taken place will continue the ascension in !;&' A BARK GOLS ASHORE.

The Press of Montreal Boldly De clares for a Republican Government. An Idea Advanced that Even Great Britian May Overthrow the Pres ent Monarchy. The Prohibition and Union Labor Parties Practically Barred from Participating in the General Elections in Mis souri The Speakership Con testItems from the CauitaL MONTREAL, Nov. 21. Apropos of Brazil, quite a number of French papers, includ ing La Patne, Le Lecture Cauadien, und L'Evenement, declare this morning in favor of a Canadian republic. The Herald, of this city, the chief organ of the dominion opposition, says the En glish people are slow to make constitu tional changes, but adds that it is unsafe to say what the force of example and the Increasing intercourse of Great Britain and America backed by the further black guardism of persons in high positions might uot do. It would, of course, make no difference whatever to Canada were the English monarchy to give place to a republic, bevond the impetus that such a change might give to the tram of thought that ieadc a thinker to the conclusion that it's nearly time Canada busied herself about her own independence. AN UNJUST LAW. ProhibitionistB and Union Laborites De barred Prom Voting in Missouri. Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 2L The discov ery made here yesterday that the Prohibi tion and Union Labor parties of this state would be disintegrated unless the law pro viding for the holding of elect.ous is changed before tho next election, is con firmed. A furthor inspection of the stat ute of the state of Missouri reveals that iu case any party not having polled a per cent of the entire vote cast at the last election and desiring to place iu nomina tion a ticket, must lirst procure signatures of 1 per cent, of the polled vote cast at the last election for the former candidate on tho same ticket. It would, at a glauce, seem easy to accomplish this, but further consideration will show it to be very diffi cult. For instance, at the last election the Prohibitionist candidate for governor re ceived about 50,000 votes. To be able to vote for the next candidate for goernor on the Prohibition ticket the signatures of 1 per cent of that number or 1.000 must first be obtained from the citizens of Mis souri. The Republicans and Democrats would not, of course, sign such a petition and to get the signatures of a thousand Prohibitionists would be extremely dif ficult. THE LNTEBNATIONAL CONFERENCE A Motion to Eecognize tho Brazilian Re public Tabled Preliminary Work. Washington, D. C, Nov. 21 Secretary Blaine called tho international American conference to order this afternoon, but immediately relinquished tho chair to Dr. Guzman, delegate from Nicaraugua. After some discussion as to the honrs ot meeting of tho conference, which was finally laid aside temporarily, Henry l)e biuer, secretary, was appointed delegate from Uraguay. At this point Dr. Valente, the Brazilian minister, arose and said tho credentials of the Brazilian delegates were now here before the president nnd that they miuht be acted uoon. Delegate Hendurhou, of tho United States, offered the following resolution Resolved, That this congress welcome the United States of Bra.il into the sister hood of American republics Mr. Romero then read a cablegram ad dressed to Minister Valente reading as follows: "The provisional governmnntof Brazil confirms the powers given your ex cellency and Senors Lafayette and Men doum. Becaycva, feecretary State Provisional Government." The resolution offered by Mr. Henderson caused considerable general discussion and it was finally tabled. The credentials were then referred to a proper committee. The first rule provid ing that the time of the meeting should bo between 2 nnd .1 o'clock on Mondays, Wedne-days aud Fridays together with six other rules were agreed upon in a pre liminary way. Tho conference then ad journed until Moday. A REFUTED CHIEF BOUNCED. WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. The .secretary of the interior has requested and received the resignation of H. A.

It U tow practically certain that Reed will have a solid east; but how long his support ers will stick to him is a question that is troubling his immediate lieu tenants. The McKinley men are spreading th report that Reed is switching around to tbe progressive New England idea ol free raw materials, especially free wool. McKinley still holds that not a single particle of the protective policr caa bo ielded, and no doubt before the caucus convenes an effort will be made to solidify all the wool raising states against the man from Maine. Henrv Cabot Lodge, ot Massachusetts, who is Blaine's most active lieutenant, is viid to be an avowed free wool man. a though during the last campaign and in the last congress be was a very violent protectionist all along the line. Since then, however, he has seen light, probably because the New England manufacturers are regarding free raw ma terials, as a necessity for thejiuccessful con duct of their business. Keed docs not talk much on the subject of the tariff and will not openly express his opinion regarding free raw material, but those who seem to be familiar with his latter day views., de clare thnt he bos become a convert to frw raw materials. It is probable that this matter will be ventilated very fully before the caucus convenes, and may yet cut a very interesting figure in tho contest. WESTERN MATTERS AT THE CAPITAL.

AN APPEAL FOR SAFER QUARTERS. WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. Attorney Gen eral Miller has received a long report from Eugene Marshall, United SUtes nttorney for the northern district of Texas, in re gard to the difficulty of administering the federal laws in that community In conse quence of a feeling of hostility on the part of certain state ofllcinls toward the federal officers. fn closing his report thedlstrictnttornry says: "The laws or the United States con tomplato that the state will provide a suitable jail for the use of tho courts of the United States. ;if Young county will not provide a jail of utonr nnd mortar, iron and steel, we must furnish ono of Mesh and blood, nerve Hud uiuow. 1 dou't see. therefore, how we can well avoid the necessity of armed men at Gra ham during sessions of tho United Staler courts to assist iu the transaction of iu business and preset vo the prace. Tho atmosphere of shot-guns and aix-ahooters is not a proper one for nny court to be held iua civilized countrv, much less one of the dignity of the court of tha United States. It is to be hopt?d, therefore, that congreH will do komethlng for tbe reln'f of this district by removing th branch of th- federal courtnt Graham tc some more accessible point which will bo more convenient for tho public in thiMJ days of railways and where the public business will not be embarrassed and ob structed by a lawle clement."
