IIauhinoton, Dei., Oct. 10.—There was a large Democratic rally held in front of Newnom's hotel on Saturday night. There were 400 voters present. The hotel porch, on which the speakers stood, was handsomely decorated. Station Agent Dale was the presiding officer. Hon. John W. Causey was the first speaker. He discussed the relation of the tariff to the agricultural interests. Tlie estimated cost of an acre of wheat to the hnshandryman is$10.33.Seventeen bushels is the average yield of this stale. At Î0 cents a bushel the total value of the crop is $11.90. This leaves a pro carious profit of $1.05 for the tillage of an acre of wheat. How can farmers afford to pav trlbute out of tbat )KHlr profit to support and protect other in dustries? Levin Irving Handy was tho next speaker.

Town Connell 1 'rged to Ho Something: to Itrlnit u Whole Community Om of Iiurk nvn. Special Correspondence Evenlna Journal. Dovku, Oct, il. —The considération of the freeholders, of property owners and citizens of the town, presented to the town council, at its meeting on Monday evening last, calling attention to the present unsatisfactory manner in which the town is lighted, was postponed for one weelt. Whether council by thus postponing the consideration of tills matter desires to quash the demand for more and better lights, is not known, but one thing is known that the citizens will not much longer endure the patriai manner in which the town is lighted, and the present excuse for lights in some parts of town, consisting of oil lamps which during storms, go out altogether, and when burning are obscure from smoke. Tlie desirability of having oil lights, continually burning all night must tie ap parent to any one having occassion to arrive in town by midnight cars, and he. sides this tenebrous condition of the town after 10 o'clock at night favors and protects the petty thieves who rob smoke houses and chicken coops. A document is in course of signature by stockholders in the Delaware Hosiery company authoring the president and directors of the company to lease or sell the works. The document says that "realizing how the impetus given to the prosperity of the town of Dover by the starting of the hosiery works lias been cliecked by the stoppage of said works, and believing that under proper management the business would be re munerative, we whose names are hero with attached, witli the desire that the concern »Dull go under ment, the works started, ment given to our idle citizens, request an immediate sale or leasing of the hos iery works."

H. SOMMERS 9 RELIABLE SHOE HOUSE, 209 MARKET STREET 209 ■NEAR SECOND ST It K ET. Strawbridge & Clothier. CONCENTRATION IN BUSINESS As illustrated in the distribution of Women's and Children's Wraps. No one department in our house affords a more signal illus tration of the value of the great principle of Concentration in Business Efforts than that of WRAPS FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN. For a number of years the business transacted in this de partment has been easily the largest letail business of the coun try—so far as appears—but the astonishing strides made during the past two years evidence the operation of borne substantial and controlling cause. This cause we find in'the fact that our great Coat Factory has attained to such a perfect organization, and is turning out largo quantities of work of such a high order of mo.it, that there is practically no competition with the commanding stock we offer of every descrition of Women's and Children's Wraps. THE FIRST ADVANTAGE wo claim is that we arc in posi tion to place in stock every day, from our own workrooms large quantities of new, fresh garments, made from the latest French designs. This daily supply makes the entire stock new and fresh, and no old goods are kept on hand. THE SECOND ADVANTVGE is that the make and finish of every garment is equal to the best custom work. Never before has a large factory turned out such high character of work, aicd it is our purpose to maintain and even, if possible, raise the standard. As an evidence of the character of the wo.k we would state that the large retail houses of New York, Boston, Chicago and other cities stand ready to take all we can spare of our pro ducts over and above the demand of our own retail business, for the reason that they cannot supply themselves with such high standard of goods elsewhere. THE THIRD ADVANTAGE is a saving of at least 25 per cent, in the prices which saving is made possible by the size and character of the organization and the adoption of every labor saving device, and every economy, except Cheapening the wages of operatives, which would not be economy in any proper tense of the word. For the AUTUMN of 1892 The stock is now full, and conspicuous mention is thus made of the extraordinary advantages offered consumers, that the public nny be duly informed of said advantages, which are, wo believe, quite unprecedented in the history of the COAT business. A handsome illustrated catalogue of coats and wraps—just issued—will be sent free of charge to any address, on application. STRAWBRIDGE 8 CLOTHIER, MARKET ST., EIGHTH ST., FILBERT ST., PHILADELPHIA.
