In our great display of Spring Suits, we this sea-on make an extraordinary showing in the lines at the popular prices of $io, $12 and $i 5. We have frequently been asked if the $10 suits are made with the same care and attention that mark the extra fine suits at from $15 to $25 Our an swer is, yes. The cut is just as artistic, that graceful set which marks all our clothing,is there ; the sewing is just as accurate and as strong. The difference is entirely in the cost of the material. In fact at $io, $12 and $15 we give more real, actual value than any other clothing house in Ame»ica. What we have said about real excellence holds just as true in the Boys' and Chil dren's Department as it does in Men's Clothing. Always full value—often far more for the money than you can get elsewhf re. Strictly one price and if dissatisfied with your purchase we will return your money. 316 MARKET ST MAX EPHRAIM.

Omaha, May ».—The twenty-fourth quad rennial cunferem-e of the Methodist Episco pal church was called to order at Boyd's Opera house. Bishop Bowman and Dr. S. Monroe were elected permanent secretaries. The entire moruiug session was devoted to a discussion of the proposition to seat the lay delegates separate from the clergy. During the discussion Dr. John I.auahan ■aid he wished to congratulate the laymen upon tho demand. He believed that the laymen would have more influence and power In the conference by being seated separately. The Appearance of Antagonism. Mr. Rinkle, of Kentncky, vigorously com bated the idea of separate seating. "I do not congratulate the laymen upon this de maud for separate seating," said Mr. Hinkle. "I know that we had the meetings the other night, and 71 ont of about 10l> laymen voted for the separate seating They wanted the sheep and the goats separted. Some thought they should be (tailed sheep and lambs. I want to plead for the lambs. I want the laymen and ministers seated to gether. I want the advice of the ministers, and I want the ministers to get advice occa sionally from the laymen. If wc are seated separately it will have the apjajarance ol antagonism." ! Lost Their Individuality. Mr. Murray, of central Pennsylvania, a lay delegate, said that they were glad to do honor to the ministers, but they wanted to be seated by themselves for the influence it would give in the conference. They had lost their individuality heretofore, as nine -teen laymen had been interspersed between over .100 minister* One advantage the pro posed order of things would give wonld be the possibility of conferring together. They merely wanted to be placed on an equality with the ministers. Ik Mr Field, of Pennsylvania, said that there was no thought of arousing antagonism be tween the laymen and tbe ministers. Tbe desire was to create a closer union by placing the laymen where they could do the most for the interest* they represented. Dr. J. M. Buekley, of New York city, thon took the floor. He said the object of giving laymen representation in the con ference was to secure the assistance of the laymen In the framing of the laws of tbe church. Hail tho laymen been given a fair chance to exercise equal power with the ministers? Dr. Buckley thought not.

"The presiding officer usually recognizes some ministerial delegate, and the layman ï J sits down." Dr. Lewis C. Curtis, of Chicago, said that it was simply a question of privilege for the laymen and not of compulsion. If they warned to sit by themselves tbe ministers could not do less than to grant their re quest. After a long wrangle the conference de cided to allow lay delegates who so desired to select seats separate from the ministerial delegate*. r Tl»« Actor«' Fund Fair.
