SrrTEMHVR . 1 . 18H». TUESDAY, R there, oyster i This is September. Any fool may go over the Niagara Falls in a band, but he should not be fool enough to live afterwards. With Foraker doing the oratory and Halatepd doing the flue writing in Ohio the campaign will likely be bolh vehe ment and senseless. Mrs. John Loo an must feel a little chagrin for assisting to procure the Turner endorsement at Milwaukee. She is the widow of a soldier. Two small boys in San Francisco fol lowed a mouse to its lair and found $20, 000 in its neat. Small hoys will .have more respect for rich mice hereafter. Mrs. Mona Cairo's husband is said to bo a "geulal level-headed Scotchman" so it is a profound mystery why she should have afflicted the world with "Js marriage a failure." Pretty Miss Marchand of Chicago wishes to go over the falls with Graham. This must he a dull season In Chicago, if a young girl hae to seek a tame adven ture like that. Wh kn they shall have arrived home aud begin to kick themselves, metaphor lc»lly speaking, for allowing themselves to be misled by groveling politicians at Milwaukee, the veterans should lose no time lu repudiating Tannerism. -It is discreditable and dishonorable. Those Trusts which are attempted on our own soil, and which undertake to turn to their advantage the tariff rates which were made for the purpose of de veloping domestic competition, it. is ob Yious that the first weapon, as also the appropriate one, is the withdrawal of the protective duty. —Philadelphia American That description embraces the whole catalogue of trusts and therefore the protective duty should be withdrawn from the whole lot. Mrs. Allen Hamilton of Fort Wayne, Ind,, who died two weeks ago,bequeathed $1,000 to the eanse of women's suffrage. It is explained that Mrs. Hamilton's ac quaintance with the shrieking advocates of the cause was limited and that is likely the reason why she made the strange bequest. She probably thought that woman's suffrage was to be propa gated in Zululand for she was too good aud too sensible to wish to afflict woman's suffrage upon the people of the United States. Will the President be brave enough to dismiss Tanner! That is all there is to do. There is no question that Tan uerisra is a flagrant abuse. There is no question that Tanner is a discredit to the Administration, a disgrace to the country aud to the soldiers. He procured his en dorsement from the that encampment, easily but lie may accounted for by the dickers between Tanner aud Alger and between Alger and Mrs. Logan and a few irrepressibles of the G. A. R. The country will not en dorse Tanner for the country cannot dure him. en President Harrison should have dismissed him at once and without a bearing. Quinine manufactured by three firms 1 1 millionaires under a high tariff cost 50,000,000 of people $3.50 per ounce. The tariff was repealed and the number of factories ha« doubled, the out put ha« quadrupled, the number hands employed has doubled, and wages have increased and the price of quiuine has been reduced to 50 cents per ounce. Sixty millions have the benefit of quinine at 50 cents in this country and it ia sold to many millions in other countries. At $9 50 three firms received the benefit of the high tariff and »illions of people added millions of dol lars to the fortunes of Powers A Weight man, Scbiefflin and Rosengarten. The silk leather and cotton Industrie« have profited in the not to the same extent. Why reduce the tariff on all industries with this object lesson of benefits to guide us? of same manner but : ' The affairs of Hayti are becoming plicated. It is said that Secretary Blaine is exercising his wits and the secret influence of the government to obtain a coaling station on the Mole San Nicolas. The Mole San Nicolas is elevated peninsula extending from the northwestern It is, cot I to corner of Hayti. perhaps, fifty miles long and forty miles wide, but It has irregu iarities and projections. It is separated from Cuba by the so called Windward Passage, a channel about forty miles with a rapid current setting steadily toward the south. Of course, if the United States should acquire there a coaling station for men-of-war, it might, after a while, be found advisable to re vive the old French fortifications, which still exist in a state of ruin. A coaling station is a very simple thing, but if the United States should acquire possession of one in the independent republic of Hayti it would be a difficult matter for any of the great powers to take it away Mr. Blaine attempted to make a deal with General Legitime, the contestant for the leadership, who had the best title as ruler of Hayti. But when General Legitime would not make a bargain which he knew he could not keep. Secre tary Blaine made overtures to General H 'poljte. Hi p. ] /le was out of p. s er wide, and willingly promtsed anything to get lu. Now, howeter, that he hau succeeded with the secret but effective assistance of the United States, he refuses to make good his promises to Mr. Blaine. Promises are cheap, bnt to lease the Mole San Nicolas to the United States is equivalent to signing his own abdication. He cannot fulfil his bargain now, that he is the ruler of Hayti and , Legitime his rival is in exile, because the Ilavtians would not endorse the trade. Hence Fred Douglass remains In the United States and Hip polyle is not recognized. MUNICIPAL COURT. A Clothing Thief Held For Other Cases.

New Castle, Del., has been set. by the ears over the conviction of a young man of that town upon a ehajge of malicious mischief. The people have taken sides in the matter, and there is promise of lively times to Thomas c me. The victim K. Lancaster, a reporter for the Wilmington Evening Journal, residing in New Castle, aud his prose cutor is Carter I. A. Fols, who figured be fore the public a few months ago because all the auburn haired maldeus of New Castle declared a boycott against the team of white horses driven before his omnibuses. Fols was qnite out tip over the boycott, and does not now relish the notoriety that has been again thrust upou him. as Lancaster's friends threaten a more vigorous boycott than the girls waged. A few evenings ago young Lancaster aud Frederick W. Hoffman were amusing themselves at the steamboat wharf with a pet dog. Carter Fols had backed his team up to the wharf, awaiting the rival of the boat. In calling the dog Lan caster chirped in a way that started the horse, and though Fols soon stopped the animal, he accused the young men of in t.entionally starting the horse, and out a warrant for their arrest ou the charge a malicious mischief At the hearing before Mayor Hanson tliei-e were many witnesses for botii sides, but the young men donted any evil iuteut in the matter. However, the mayor fined Lau catter $5 and costs and discharged Hoff man. Lancaster's friends have taken the matter ap aud talk of appeal. Feel ing runs high over the matter, as Lan caster has been active iu opposing the issue of liquor licenses to improper per sons.—Philadelphia Record. is ar swore Peuüloii Day* To-morrow is United States pension day.

A vote of confidence. Often before you have voted upon trade questions submitted in this column, but never before have you been asked to pass upon the claims of a special sale on the opening day of September. The September Limited started yesterday as an nounced. Unlimited as to numbers. Limited only in time, space, quantity. The start was a great success. It was indeed a satisfaction to note how our statements about goods and prices were re ceived. The remarkable point was that on a warm Septem ber day crowds of ready buy ers came to carry off not only the announced bargains but the others that were waiting a chance to be talked about. You need to remember that all things in this Limited Sale are at prices far below value, and therefore, of course, lim ited in quantity. But the quantities are at tractive, big enough to be worthy—big enough to be just as interesting to-day as yesterday. Were you disap pointed yesterday? Come to day and you'll wonder how so much could go in yesterday's great sale and yet so much remain. 'Triples advertised here. *rc never Furniture. The popularity of the Parlor Furniture sale is quite sur prising. YVe expected inter est, but we had excitement. To-day it will continue with the chances still much in your favor. The bold ticket on each suite or piece shows the price reduction—the price of Au gust 31st—last Saturday—the price now. You can then see whether the reduction is 30, 50 or 70 per cent. Upholstery. Added items to-day. Last year we gave special attention to Antique and Cluny La£e Curtains. The demand was surprising. This year we have made them a specialty, and havj searched the French Piovince that produces them not only for styles but bar gains. Many makers would demand of us in France higher prices than we had charged you here in Philadelphia. But the patient search was re warded, and we are able to offer you to-day about 1000 pairs of these popular Cur tains far cheaper than we did last Autumn, and then we thought (correctly) that we did a great thing. ' The lace edge and inserting is hand-made linen, and the différé nee between Antique and Cluny is merely in style. The Antique are $1.75, $2, $2.50, $3, $3.50, $3.75, $4, $4 50, $ 5 - $6. $7, $7.50, $8, $9, $10 a pair. The Cluny are $4, $6, $6,50, $7, $ 7 - 50 - $8, $9. $10, $12, $13-50, $18 and $20 a pair. Wonders of cheapness. Of the 125 pairs Tunisian Curtains at $6 from $13 50, enough are left to reward your choosing. The colors beautifully assorted and well chosen. The Silk Shiela and Turco man Curtains, advertised yes terday at half price and less, had scant justice. At a glance you may see fifty sample pairs art WAXASIAKER'S. and not a color lacking that ought to be in a well-chosen lot of Curtains. They range from $io to $35, they were $20 to $75. Second floor. Thirteenth street, and first gallery north of Transept. Silks. In the face of a market ad vance of 10 to 15 per cent in raw silk you'd hardly look for cut prices on seasonable and desirable weaves. Never mind the why, let the fact suffice. Here are a few sample sorts to set you thinking—and buying. 5 patterns $i Black Armure or thimble pattern silks at 75c 23^-inch Black Faille Fran çaise or Corded Silk at the $1.50 quality. 23-inch Silk, 85c. 26-inch Turk's Satin, $1, 1.25 and $1.50. $1.50 Black Satin Soleil, $1. $2 Faille 9 OC.

X kinds $4.50 grade at $1.50. 2 kinds $6.00 grade at $2.00. $3.50 Black Brocade in cut and uncut Velvets at $1.75. In the Tranuept, Dress Goods. Judging by the crowds of buyers in the aisles and the heaps of stuffs on the coun ters you'd hardly say that the new dress goods were hold ing back till next week. They have to. We might push some little lots in here and there, but they would only hint of the masses of choicest staples and novelties in reserve. No, there must be room making before the newcomers can have a fair chance. Jumping prices on the pres ent stock of Fall and Winter stuffs will do the business for us. $1.50 and $1.25 Suitings— Plaids, Melanges, and Jac quards—go to 75c. A dozen rich combination stuffs that have been $1.50 to $2.50, go to $1. 50c Plaids 37j^c. 37/^c Melange 20c. 20c Mixtures 15c. Cutting has been just as close in Robes. $12 kinds for $7; $35 kinds for $25—a dozen steps be tween. Linens. All the Linen Bargains an nounced yesterday are con tinued, mostly in the Chestnut street entrance aisle. Blankets. Concerning Blankets we want a few serious woids with you. The goods offered here are all regular and clean in every respect—no vicissitudes in their history whatever. If you are an expert in woolens compare them with any on all the market, and you'll prove our statement that they are beyond question the Blanket bargain of this market. Housekeepers' choice, 5 pounds, $4.25; 6 pounds, $5.50 a pair. The Long Dollar, 5 pounds, $3.20; 6 pounds, $4 a pair. The Coronet, scarlet, 5 pounds, $4 a pair. Women's Shoes.
