Hosier; within everybody's reach, to make .i Silk Stock in;*
of REAL SjERVIGE. BEAUTY AND STYLE nt popular prices.
And the> have succeeded marvelous!y. To secure
a she. i Silk Stocking that will wear as Well as lisle it is
no longer necessarv to pav S5.00 and S6.00 a pair.
McCALLUM SILK STOCKINGS of the best material
to be had in the world and GUARANTEED TO BE
PERFECT, arc sold at Miller & Rhoads from SI.00 a
pair up.
McCallum Silk Hosiery is THE BEST
Because every step in its manufacture is the result of thought,
patient experience and personal supervision. Because nothing
hut t lie 1 >r?t -ilk from Italy and Japan goes into McCallum Silk
Because they arc made onl> by the most skilled hands and the
most accurate utachincs.
Because they arc so b mtiful and SHAPELY.
Because every pair must .-land n rigid inspection before it is
allowed to dc|>arl from the factor)'. There is no such thing as
"seconds" or Imperfections in McCallum Hosiery.

I Although the Ordinance. Charier anil
! Ileform Committee has in prospect for
'to-night an extended docket, it Is an-'
nounced by Chariman Jacob Umlauf
that the report of the Committee on
Changes in the Form of City Govern?
ment will not be taken up. the delay'
bolng ?lue to a request of President
Wood, of tlie Chamber of Commerce.
Mr- Wood staled thai on account of'
the time taken in arranging the Taft'
plans, the details of the Hood Itoada
Association and the desire of the ;
chamber 10 assist lo-nlght In launch-1
Infi the Women's Christian Assoola- ]
lion new building campaign, It had!
been found Impracticable to prepare I
properly to present the matter io the 1
committee, especially In view of its!
far-reaching importance and the groat;
danger of adverse action were the
mutter Insulllclcnlly presented.
Large Docket To-Night.
Tlii- Ordinance Committee, however,
will hold Its regular meeting at S>
o'clock Among- the matters on the
docket arc a petition for an extension
of time for the wide lln ordinance to
take effect; an ordinance tlxlng the
salaries and duties of the superintend?
ent and employes of the electric plant;
several other salary matters. Including
u resolution Increasing the pay of the
Chief of Police from 12,000 to ?'.',400.
ami an ordinance regulating sign
At the City Hall the announcement
? ?I' tie- indefinite postponement of the
consideration of the plan for rcfoim
Ing the government was taken as an
indication of its defeat, and there was
rejoicing among street cleaners, park
keepers 'ami minor politicians. The
belief obtains at the City Hall that
although Indorsed by the Chamber of
Commerce, the movement has had
little or no actual support save from ,
the newspapers.
Hn> Itcinnln on Table
Postponed without date, it is freely
predicted tii.il the remaining ten days
of the month will go by without ac?
tion, and thai the December Council
will have no report from the ordinance
Committee It had been announced
by Chairman Umlauf that the Ordi?
nance Committee would take the mut?
ter up early in the month and report
to. a special melting of the Council, I
so that the papers might go on to Hie
Finance Committee and cume back io i
the December meeting of the Council ?
lor nnal action. Mr. Umlaut said last ,
night that personally he exceedingly i
regretted the delay, as he believed
tin- committee would be criticized. Ho
had not taken any poll of the commlt
toe. he stutcd, and did not know how
it would vote, but he believed the
members wcr*> familiar with what is'
proposed, and were ready to go into
the mutter ami determine It to-night.
The fuel Is that so far as the Coun?
cil is concerned, the proposition is not
a new one. the general principle In- I
votved has been under discussion in
one form or another for a half-dozen
years, and many Councllmetl on both
-nie;, of the qtlotftlou profess their
readiness to proceed to n final vote at
once. It Is tacitly admitted that a
majority of the Ord'tiancc Committee
i* opposed tu the plan presented, and
ii ii. freely predicted that after this
pi stponeihent. there will be no quorum
until Hie monthly meeting of Hie
committee late in December.

Gans-Rady Company
Declares That Respite-Confes?
sion Report in Newspapers Is
Absolutely Untrue.
Governor Mann sont telegrams to
New York newspapers last night de?
nouncing the statement published
there yesterday morning that he had
offered to respite Henry Cluy Beattlc,
Jr.. until December 24?Christmas Lve
provided he made a clean confession
of his guilt. The proposition was sso
cold-blooded and brutal that the Gov?
ernor felt the public would realize
that it was an absolute fako of the
yellowest type. Uut when he begun
to receive telegrams from other news?
papers asking If the statements were
true he was forced to telegraph a de?
nial over his own signature.
In ita report published yesterday
morning from Richmond the New York
A:n< neun said:
"Richmond, November 13.?llcniy
Clay Beattlc. Jr.. sitting in the death
c? II of the,penitentiary hire, less than
ti ii feet away from thu electric chair
In which he la to die next Friday, de- '
bated with himself to-day a problem
about na Strange, as tremendous, us i
ever n man f;.ced.
"It was this: 'Would thirty nddi-I
tional days of life be worth while ac- 1
cepttng In exchange for a confession
of ^>:!lt? Would one more month of
breath bo u. sufficient recompense for
a final and eternal blackening of his
name by himself."
"Govomor Mann. It has developed,
approached by all sorts of Influence
to grant the rich young wife-slayer a
short reprieve, made this grim pro?
??'If Beattlc will make a full and
frank confession he can live until De?
cember 34, Christmas Eve. If lie docs
not. he shall be electrocuted at the
time now flxed. Let him decide for
himself.' '*
Governor's Telegram.
The Governor last night gave out
the following copy of a telegram which
1..- had sent newspnpers in answer to
their request for a statement:
'?The statement In the American is
absolutely and wholly false. 1 have
had no communication with that pap< r
directly or Indirectly. I have made no
proposition of any kind to Beattlc and
will make none."
The Governor said that he hardly
uitought It- necessary to deny the re?
port, though he did so llnally when
there wan a demand for information.
