Mr Dannenberg wauled It referred to the Finance and Election Committees; and Mr. Wainwright thought it shoiilu go to the Election Committee and City Solicitor Elliott. «Some of the Republican members of Council wanted to know why all the members of the Department of Elections had not endorsed th*bill. Mr. Tyre held that the Election Com mittee had nothing to do with it, as it only had a certain appropriation to run the department for a year.

To the Editor of the Evening Journal. Stil: 1 saw in your issue of November (Ith a communication signed "A Friend of the Old Man " There is au old saying that, reads : "If the shoe fits etc." la this Instance as far as 1 am concerned I would refrain from replying to this veual attack of spleen, jealousy and haired, emanating as It does from alow, disordered brain whose standard of morality is so low that any plot or scheme to bring others to the same level of debasement would not he too good. 1 say I would not reply if it were not in justice to my family and friends. 1 am free to say that 1 visit the office, intimated by this "Friend of the Old Man." unite often on Sunday mornings. I shall likely continue to do so unless bis family desire otherwise; lint in making these visits I do not drink liquor or any other kind of stimulant. It Is and has bean my custom for nearly a year past, with very few exceptions, lo attend the services of a very prominent church in this city, and In such a capacity as to preclude any doubt of my indulgence in any such practices as are charged. As far as looking "The Old Man" up is concerned, either in day time or at night, It is simply a falsehood, except in mat ters of business. This I shall continue to do as often as I see lit I repeat that I do not drink at-thls office as those who visit there will attest Nor do 1 seo the excessive drinking as portrayed lu the emu mu ideation 1 refer to. My visits there are not of more Ilian an hour's duration and in the mornings only, and the friendship for the mao who has been mv friend is the only In " nentive to taka mo there. This Is not the first time the attempt has been made from the same source to degrade me and my family. It would be natural to suppose from the tone of the letter, that the writer was aimiug at the refer mnt ion of "the old man" but when you compare the name of this social leper with his nom de plume you find be is not nor ever was "A friend of the Old Man" nor of reformation of any kind. A care fui perusal of the letter In your Issue of the (Jth shows nothing but a desire to vilify those who aim at a higher standard of morality and public usefulness. 1 place my character both private aid public alongside of this enemy of decency feeling assured it can not suffer by the compai ison. In conclu sion, I will say that the writer of that letter was actuated hy no other motive than to degrade some one. It is an alarm ing fact that the world is full of men of that character who under the garb of Christian motives seek to destroy uud ruin the hopes of others. And who would he safe from such possibilities if such a rule should prevail? I publish this letter hy consent of the family so deeply interested f 11 Gkorck W. K« ki.pb. New Castle, Delaware.

The puckers in mafiy a mother's fore bead are deepened as she studies how to dress her hoys sud girls in a respectable manner on the email amount that is available. A minister's wife in a small town near Wilmington was confronted by this dis couraging situation, but her woman's wit and a few 10 cent packages of Dia mond Dyes solved the problem,and hand some clothes were soon evolved from a pile of odds and ende. Nome of the con gregution were beard to remark that it was wonderful how Mrs. Page managed to dress her family so well on her bus band's salary, and even thought she was extravagant, but they never knew. The Home, Housekeeper,' Ladies' Home Companion, and other household papers have published many articles tell ing how to use Diamond Dyes in making new clothing out of old. Pretty dresses, handsome cloaks, serviceable stockings, and gay hat ribbons and feathers arc obtained at but little expense, not only for t lie childrtu, but for the mother as well. The ease with which Diamond Dyes are used is really surprising. Ttiey make beautiful colors that never crock and are non-fading. "While there are other package dyes, there are none so easily used, nor such fast colors,' says .lean Hunt iu a recent number of The Home. "I have tried other dyes, but the Diamond color the moat goods. Their fast stocking black is the only black dye for cotton 1 bave ever found that makes a fast black which never turns gray w hen washed." Men's Overcoats as low as $5 and up to $20.
