Other credit houses j have been plodding along for some time, while with us our sales and delivery men have had all they could handle. The reason for this is the su perb and complete lines of goods we carry and the ex tremely low prices at which we are selling them. It is true, we are not making much money, hut then we are cut ting down our stock and we will have no shop-worn goods next season; and then again, we keep our hands employed, and every tradesman knows what it is to be fully employed during the dull season. Our new fall and winter stocks will soon be coming in, and we need all the room we can get. This means that you can buy our goods on credit at a price less than you will be asked to pay in cash by many other merchants. Give us a call and examine our Furniture, Carpets, Rugs Mattings, Oil Cloths. Silks, Dry Goods, Dress Goods« Millinery, Shoes, Men's and Boys' Clothing, Stoves and Housefurnishings, And be convinced our prices are 25 per cent lower than else where. Order now for next season and «ave money. It is one of our rules of busi ness to satisfy our patrons, and any one purchasing goods from us can return the goods and get the money back if they are not just as represented.

The Convention Adopts Sensible Resolu tion and Adjourns#. The Advisory Council of colored men reassembled in the (ierman Hall yester day afternoon, aud took up the b usiuess of the convention. The committee on resolutions reported the following to the convention: "The colored citizens of the State of Delaware in convention assembled do adopt the following resolutions : We re alize that to measure up what is required of American citizens, we must possess in tegrity, intelligence, and Industry. We desire neither favor nor discrimination, at the hands of the state or national government; but the common treatment, and the common protection, due Ameri can citizens. We want fair chances aud an open field, therefore, "Resolved, That we stimulate our brethren to greater exertions in educa tion, that we seek for the race, by all lawful means, better and adequate school facilities throughout the state; that, enccurage literary societies amongst us. "Resolved, That as one of the great aims of our race is industrial training, a a committee of nine be appointed to take into consideration and to establish an Industrial institute for our people ; that the importance of industrial training be continually urged amongst us; that seek the aid ef all sympathizers of a suffering people, struggling to help themselves. "Resolved, That we organize colored men's advisory councils iu every town and village in this state, where our peo ple reside, for the purpose of carrying out those resolutions and looking after the advancement of the race. "Resolved, That we need a paper pub lished and devoted to our peculiar inter est, that the Executive Committee of the colored men's advisory council be empowered to devise a way and means to publish such a paper; that we urge our people to take it, send comminica tions to It, and make it a first-class journal. "Resolved, That we promote temper ance, that we urge onr people to oppose the liquor traffic, as hostile to the best interest of the commonwealth; Injurious to society, and hurtful to the race blighting Its hope. ••Resolved, That we call upon all pas tors amongst ns to look after the religious training of otar children of their respec tive communities in Protestant faith, that no child of color is unprovided with a Protestant home and instruction. "Resolved, That we thank all benefac tors of onr race, all who are contending that we may fully enjoy all the rights of men. We pledge them our hearty sup port aud co operation. "Resolved, That we call npou onr people to take a manly and patriotic staud In politics, refusing bribes In any shape or form, ignoring all efforts of demagogues to use them ; that we urge them to vote as they conscientiously be lieve to be for the best interests of the state and for the ad /ancement of the race, securing equal civil and political rights to all citizens, without regard to race or color." Rev. W. D. Cook then proposed this resolution ; "Resolved, That we, the members of the advisory council, do from time to time, encourage our people to take stock in building and loan associations, wherein and whenever an opportunity is giveu aud thereby secure to ou-selves good, comfortable homes in which we can rear our children in keeping with the laws of health, thus helping to advance moral purity among us as a race." J. S. Williams said he had only one objection to make to the resolutions, aud that was the introduction of a religious feature. He was not a Catholic, but he recognized the good work done by Catholicism, and he believed the business oi that convention should be "to steer clear of religions controversy as well as politics." The chairman rose and made a reply, and was launching into a tirade against "Romanism," wheu Mr. Briuckley rose to a point of order. He said the chairman had no right to discuss the question while he was in the ohair. The chairman—"I am not discussing the question. I am only making a re mark. Mr Brinckley does not seem to understand the difference." Mr. Briuckley—"If you were not dis cussing the question, I am at a loss to know what you were doing. It is only because you are In the chair that such a ruling is made." The matter then dropped down. On motion that the resolutions be adopted as a whole Mr. Williams alone voted against them. A vote of thanks to the press of the citv for publishing the proceedings was proposed aud adopted. An executive committee consisting of the following members was appointed: D. B. Anderson, J. H. Scott, Rev. J. H. Riddick, 8 S. Parker, Thomas Gold, D. C. Reamer. R S. Accove, Rev. D. B. Coot, B. F. Rulev, W. Cooper. 8. Moles ton. The convention adjourned. Cruelly to a Horse Punished.

Potter, Lovell A Uo.'« Failure. Boston*, Aug. 30.—There are many re ports regarding the Dotter, Lovell & Co. failure. The firm, from the nature of its business, is largely involved.

Mr. Blaise's Opinion the Inevitable Tendency Is Toward Increasing the Free Ult— Reciprocity Versus Free Trade. The War Tariff and the Present Turifr. WATERVILLE, Me., Aug. 30.—About 2,500 people assembled at a moss meeting here last night to listen to an address by Secre tary James G. Blaine. After remarks by Governor Burleigh, Drcaident Small, of Colby university, introduced Mr. Blaine the "leader of the Republican purty and famous advocate of an interesting und progressive protective tariff." Hon. Will iam E. Mason, of Illinois, followed, in an enthusiastic speeah, indorsing the princi ples of reciprocal trade. Mr. lllaiue'* .Speech. In touching upon national affairs, Mr. Blaine «aid: I wish to declare the opinion that the United States has reached a point where one of its bifin est duties is to enlarge the area of its future trade. Under the boneflcient policy of protec tion we hare dereioped a rohirae of manufact ure« which, iu many depart meuts, overrun» the demand of the home market. In the field Of agriculture, with the immense propulsion given it by agricultural Implement«, we can do far more than produce breadstuff* aud provision* for people, nor would it be au ambitious destiny for do great, a country a* ours to manu facture only wnat we oau consume or to product« only what we eau eat. We are already lu many fabrics und in many product* far beyond that, and our grvat demand is expansion of trnde with countries where wo can find profitable exchanged. Annexation of Trade, Not Territory. We are not eeekiug annexation of territory. Certainly we do uot desire it unless it should come by the volition of a people who might a*k the priceless boon of a place under the protec tion of the flag of the Uuiou. 1 feel sure that for long time to come the people of the Unli.ed State* will be wisely content with our present urea ami not launch upon any scheme of annexa tion. At the same time 1 think we should be unwisely content if we did not seek to engage fa what ;the younger Pitt so well termed utmeifc turn of trade. OUI New Jersey's Silk Industry. Mr. Blaine then dwelt at length upon the prosperity of tho United States during the thirty years of protection. He said the lieuvy duty on silk had been levied simply to secure a larger revenue from ouo of the luxuries of tlie rich, but as a consequent}« of the duty tlie silk industry has increased so rapidly that it constitutes one of the leading fabric industries of New Jersey, one of the largest manufacturing slates Of the Union. He continued: The Reciprocity Idea. I am here to speak of the expansion of otir foreign trade, not by auy novel process, not by any mode that wilt shock or disturb home in dustries, not by any mode that will incite nor people to rash experiment« or that will launch us in doubtful and dangerous experiments. Wliat l.mean to speak ef briefly is a system of reciproc ity not in confiicl with a protective tariff, Dut sup plementary thereto, and presenting n field of enterprise that will richly repay the effort and energy of the American people. We shull find it instructive and valuable to examine into the sources of our imports, the destination of our ex rts, and to strike a balance Iwtween the two. 1819 our whole exports to all the countries in the three continents of Europe, Asia aud Africa arid to Australia, Canuda and Hawaii amounted, ill round numbers, to $OftH,OlXI,UGO; ami our ini isirts from all these countries amounted, iu round numbers, to $MJT,0u0,U00, showing m it from that vast trade i:; had a balança of I! - I), - U0U Oisi in our favor, equivalent to that amount of gold among poops». Where We Lost It. Mr. Blaine says that when the account» were balanced, however, we had a balança of $13,000,000 against ns from foreign trajo ami must have lost $142,000,000 in our com merce with the countries outside of thus» referred to. He say»: We lost $41,000,tits) iu Cuba, from which our imi«>rU were $50,000,000 aud to which were only $11,0110,000. In tho republic of Brasil we lost $51,000,000. Our imports from Brasil were $00,000.000. Our exports to Brazil were $9. 000,000. In Mexico we lost $!0,00.i,000. Importa from Mexico were $41,000,000. Our exports La Mexico were $11,000,000. Our imports from com] tries south or us, both insular aud continental, on tills hemisphere were $410,000,000. Our exports to them were $04,0U),000. The balance ugabist us In our trade with them, therefore, exceeded our galus from all the rest of the world by $13,000,000. By uo figure of speeclt can we Hatter ourselves into the belief that our trade with our Amertoaa neighbors is in a prosperous condition. The War Tariff. export« After coinmeuting upon the necessity of the war tariff to furnish the sinews of war, and after alleging that by the revision of 1888 the war tariff had been so greatly re duced that it bore little resemblance to the tariff of 18Ö5, he eoutiuues: Bo entirely lias the war tariff been abolished that in the fiscal year ending June 30, 1889, thw Articles admitted free were considerably mom than oue-tttird of all the import*. The inevitable teodonvy 1*. I think, toward an increase of the free list. Our great mistake waa made when began to repeal the war duties on so large au amount of import*. Any duty repealed was a favor and an advantage to the exporting coun try, and we have asked uothing in return. In stead of this course (which 1 must say was oaruUesonesa and wastefulness by both political parties) every repeal of duty should liave been preceded by a most thorough investigation, and whenever it wa* found practicable to export any thing from the United State* and thus establish reciprocity of trade it should have been dotie. It is uot a question of setting deiiber.iMy to work, to establish reciprocal exchange*. But with alt the duties we have thus far repealed it ha* been a question of whether we should get somet hing or get nothing I hope now with our eyes open that we shall in future chbose to get something* Reciprocity Versus Frea Trad«. Wo encounter opposition to this policy from those who declare that if we enter into reciproc ity of trade with one country we must do *o with all countries, and thus indirectly bring about complete free trade. I do uot see the logic of this, and I am sure the fact will not prove what predicted. We may enter into reciprocity with oue nation because we find advantage in it. We may decline to enter into reciprocity with another nation because we see do advantage ia Reciprocity is simply a policy of circum stance to be determined favorably or adversely» according as its operation may make or lose for us. To say that because we enter iuto reciprocal relations with oue country on one thiug we must enter into reciprocal relations with all other countries on all things, is to my mind as absurd as to say that if 1 buy a horse today I must nee* essarily buy a drove of asses to-morrow. All ofe jections of that sind are, I am sure, unfounded, aud \till not stand the test of argumem or a practical trial. >r „j The Gold Kxodus. Our people do not realize the great fact that specie paymeat is endangered by our presea» system of trade » Ith the Latin- American st ttes. The few millions of gold that have gone out of the country within the last three months hav. created uneasiness in certain quarters financial position. It is very extraordinary that the loss of three millions from banks In Wall street should be accounted so serious an event when we have lost a much larger amount during Die same period from the condition of our trad* with the countries south of us without exciting the least observation. When our merchants and banker, come to thoroughly appreciate this fiel we shall receive aid and infiuence to out the 11 *form our trade from a quarter which thu* far n tuu been imposait le tv euihrt.
