It can be seen that from April 1, 1901,

"One can hardly make herself believe

few of the many complimentary ex

Wednesday evening, ' and everybody
thought the Annat Store, a great credit
to our city. Artistic hands had been
at work, with beautiful goods to work
with, and the display was wonderful,
Silks, ere pons, Etamlnes, transparent
dress goods of every description, with
their beautiful trimmings were a few
of the many things In the north room
Beautiful draperies, table linens, and
domestics of all kinds in the middle

thought by some to be the most at
tractive of all.
Tbe handsome new suit cases came
in for their share of admiration. The
pretty suits, silk skirts, wraps, cur
tains, large rugs, great variety of hand
some carpets were almost bewildering.
The pretty millinery worn by the wax
figures were advanced styles from Mrs.
Thatcher's millinery parlors.
Tbe accomodating clerks ,,were un
tiring In their attention to visitors.
The opening' continued throughout
We are all "proud that our city can
boast of such an extensive store as the

THE PRESIDENT WINS.
Cuba Wilt Get a Reduction
Twenty per Cent on Sugar.
The difference between the President
and a minority of Republicans In Con
gress, on the question of reducing the
duty on sugar, was settled by the
caucus of House Republicans, Tuesday
The President asked for a reciprocal
arrangement,' by which we would grant
Cuba a reduction of twenty per cent, on
sugar. This was opposed bya number
of Republicans of the House, led by
Tawney, of Michigan and Dick, of
Ohio, who contended that this would
injure the beet sugar Industry, and
that we ought not to injure American
industries, even to help the Cubans.
The objectors could not make the peo
ple see that they were correct, and
they compromised by proposing an
amendment which was accepted, limit
ing the operation of the proposed law
to two years. By that time it can be
seen whether the arrangements works
well or not.
The President is to be commended
for standing by the country's obliga
tions to tbe Cubans.

Victory for Friends of
Beal Local Option Bill.
Columbus, O , March 18. The advo
cates of the Beal local option bill
scored a decided victory before tbe
Senate Committee on Taxation tonight,
and the measure will be reported
favorably to the Senate and made the
special order for' Wednesday of next
week. A week ago the committee
held a short session and heard argu
ments In regard to changes that had
been made by the House Committee on
Revision. It was claimed the com ml v-
bad exceeded its authority and its
function in amending the bill in sev
eral important particulars, and this
feature of the situation was the subject
of discussion at the meeting tonight.
Every member of the Senate commit
tee was present, and tbe whole subject
of liquor legislation fully thrashed
over. . '
The action of the committee on this
proposition was si distinct and unequi
vocal victory for the friends of the
Beal bill. In lieu of tbe proposed pub
lication amendment publishing names
of petitioners, an amendment was made
providing that petitions' shall be made
with the clerk of the municipality for
reference and inspection. The bill
will be reported to the Senate by Sen
ator Harris, and made the special
order for Wednesday, 26th Inst., at
10:30 a. m.
Representative BeaL the author of
the bill; Wayne Wheeler, attorney for
the Anti-saloon League, and the Rev.
A. Baker, Superintendent of the
league, who attended the open session
of the committee were delighted with
the action taken, and declared they
had secured all, they wanted. The re
sult of the action of the committee in
the House is problematic, but it is be
lieved the bill will pass as amended.
Joe Miller, Secretary of the State
Brewers' Association, who also attend
ed the committee meeting, is disap
pointed at the action taken.
Following is the vote by which the
committee agreed to report the bill
favorably to the Senate: For Sena
tors Harris, Harding, Harrison, Ar
cher, Wirt, Pomerane, Chamberlain
and Moore. Against Senators Long-
worth, Thompson,. Wilhelm, Krause
and Becker. ..
Church Plans Submitted.
Plans were submitted to the Presby
terian congregation, Wednesday even
ing for the remodeling of the church.
Mr. J. E. West explained plans taken
from a remodeled church in Urbana,
which had been almost a counterpart
of this one, the cost to be 86,000. Tbe
report was accepted and committee
continued. Quite a discussion follow
ed, the majority seeming in favor of
more decided improvements.
.The committee were empowered to
employ an architect and find probable
cost of changes to enlarge the building.

It is nearly 42 years since Abraham

When the news came, Mr. Miller
handed the dispatch to him
saying: "You are nominated." Mr.
Lincoln read the dispatch and re
marked: "There is a little woman
down here I want to tell the news to.
first." By this time a band was
playing in the street, and Lincoln,
asking if he could get out the back
way, hurried home. Mr Miller fol
lowed as soon as he could, and arriv
ed at tbe Lincoln home before the band,
and found Lincoln's two boys, Bob
and Tad, sitting on the fence waiting
for -the band, far more concerned about
it than they were about their father's
