GHOSTS TO RISE.
New and Sensational Evi dence to Be Put For ward Today. BOWLER'S NEW POINT. The Bnena Vista-street Mur ders No Longer Barred from Evidence. WINDY LEG\L VERBIAGE. •round Balng Tranohsd Upon by tha FroeeOQtlon of a Delloete Char acter- " he Uafansa Squally Nonplused. The Craig trial ii drawing to a clone. The marital tension on all concerned in tbe caae haa been aucb tbat a conclu sion can only be looked forward to witb pleasure. Bit tbe "nest laid schemes olt gang aglee," and today promises to bs the moat critioal, and probably will bs ths most eenaational of tbe entire trial. Shortly bsfore noon yesterday it ap peared as if the rebutting testimony of the prosecution, which, by the way, was rather weak, would close, aud the de fendant bs left a good fighting chance • for lile. It seemed as if the inane for ths jury to consider would be narrowed down to the broad proposition, was Craig justified in any way in shooting George Hunter? Conceding tbe point that such a personage as Owight olley ever existed, tbe remainder of the story as told by thedefendant himself is quite possible, even if very improbable. But then the defendant must always get the benefit of any doubt, and under such circumatances titers would be a broad margin wherein learned couniel might display tbeir forensic ekill io making ar rangement of facts for the benefit of their unhappy client. Detective Bowlei'.s testimony, given in rebuttal of certain lacts elicited by the defense, while telling in certain •aeential particulars againat the prose cution, albeit put on the etand by tbe diatrict attorney, liub raiaed an issue that ia pregnaut with reunite most im portant to the defendant. Can legal reference be made lo a crime in order to prove criminal intent on tbe part of a defendant in connection with an offense •ntecsdent to it? Judge Smith has ruled in the affirmative, and the entire afternoon yeaterduy was consumed by conn,el in arguing tbe queatbn. Today witnesses will be produced in rebuttal, to prove that Craig, after leav ing tbe ecene of the homicide at Hunt er's ranch, proceeded aa quietly aa hu man agency conid convey bim and murdered Mr. and Mre. Hunter on Buena Viata atreet. If thia ta done, then Burely the testimony of the prose •ution atanda out in bold contrast of truth with the ingenious, if niendacions, story o' thedefendant. But right here ia a most intereating point. Craig ia not charged with tbe Buena Vista atreet murders, but with the murder of his wife, Emily Craig. How far will the prosecution dare to trench upon fornidden ground? If tl ey seek to absolutely prove the mur ders ou Kuena Vista etreet tbey will prove their oaae up to tbe hilt, but juat aa certainly will Craig be granted n new trial. Ou tlio ether hand, if reference ia made to the murder of the Hunter parents, just sufficient to prove tbe con tention that Craig, when be crossed bia wife'a dead body with smoking revolvers in hia hands and announced bis intention of wiping out the entire Hunter family, bad deliberate murder in his heart and waa animated by malicious and criminal iuient, wbat ia tbe reault? Tbat tbe jury will be asked to assume that the defendant did actually murder tbe old people, a lact not proven and indeed a crime not charged againat him. Tbia would be absurdity, and ao tbe proeecu tiou on one aide ia confronted by a question requiring great delicacy of treatment, and, i,n ihe other, counsel for the defsnae is being compelled to take cognizance of a uer.es of facts that, ha I they known they would tall within the province of investigation, might bavn entirely changed tbe general out tine of ihe defense made. THE OI'KNINO TESTIMONY. Ths deieudaut resumed hia sent on tbe witnesa atand for continued cross-exam ination. Previona to its being proceed ed with he stated in answer to his coun sel that he bad known nothing whatever regarding any divorce proceedings com menced by hia wife. He 'detailed facta regarding George Hunter which devel oped darlnk* a conversation with Joe Hunter. "Hs and I," said he, "were on friendly terms and be told me to look nut for Gaorge. That waa after the Bth, I don't remember when. Again tour days before tbe trouble be met me and told me tbat "the ill feeling between George and myself muat make no dif ference In onr friendship, but yoa must look ont for Ueorge." Cross examined—"Dwight Oiler wae tbe nume of my friend. I didn't aak bim hits business. He had been a trav eling man. It was he who suggested that I borrow a pistol, although I told bim that I dfd not think it would be necessary: I borrowed two pistole. We arranged to meet for the drive at the C immen-inl.street depot. 1 found him there with tbe friend that ho, as I un dirstood it, came here witb. Tbey I believe, to San FraocUoo." "Am those the pisto's that you bor rowed?" inquired Mr. Gage, putting the weapons o trt he table. "I don't know air." "What is your height?" "About 0 feet " "Your weight?" '•From 100 to 201) pounds." "You are a strong man ; pulled in a team did you not?" "Yea sir." "Yon spoke of your mother-in-law tl reateoitig to horsewhip you. Wbat waa her name?" "Alary Hunter." "When did yon \ it t see the pt«tn]s ft vt yon borrowed at the euggestiou of .vi lri.uu r" "I did not borrow any pistol on ths 19th of June." "I refsr to ths day when you aoci dentally killed your wife." sarcastically aaid Mr. Gate. "I don't know which one I used when I fired the two shots." "Did yon see one of tboae pistols go off at that mothsr-in-law that night and waa uot tbat tbo last time you aaw it?" Objection sustainsd. "Where is your wife?" "I doa't know sir." "Did you talk with your wife on tbe 25th of July?" "I did sir." "Where did sbe stand when you •poke?" [The witness pointed out position on tbe diagram.] "She turned her facs aa abe stood at the door and said: 'There's a man will show you your children.' Sbe said notb ing further." "Did you speak to her after firing at George?" "I did not; I did not see her." "Why can't you tell us what beoame of the pistols you borrowed?" "Well, I don't know what beoame of them." , "Of either one of them?" "Neither of them." "And that is aa true aa anything elae yon have testified to?" "Yes, sir." "About what hour did yon get the buggy?" "Between 4 and 6 o'clock ; I did not look at ths time." "You went to tbe ranch and returned in tbe buggy; where is it?" "I don't fcnow." "Who did you leave it with?" "I left it in Miles Long'a yard." "How far from where the pistols were?" [Objection sustainsd.J "How far to tbe plaoe where your mother-in-law waa staving that night?" [Objectiou sustained.j "Did you see your mother-in-law shortly before or after you fired at George Hunter?" [Objection sustained.] fne prosecution had failed to intro duce any testimony connecting the de fendant with the murders on Buena Viata street and where tbe piatol was found. Each question tendiug to elicit any information bearing on thia point being overruled, tbe witness was re tired. J. D. Steele, engaged in the furniture busmesß, testified to knowing the de fendant for four years and spoke of ths good reputation be bore. Geo. E. Bouton testified to having known the defendant for six yaars and knaw nothing contrary to hia good repu tation. At thia point it was admitted that counsel for defense bad been appointed by the court. "Then 1 want to introduce in evidence that Mr. Gage has been engaged to asaiet the prosecution by tbe Hunter family," eaid Mr. Guthrie. "My contract ia in writing and may be seen," replied Mr. Gage. "Oh, I don't want to go into your private business." "You can go into my private affairs and public, too. Tbere is the contract and it will hurt you if you introduce it," responded Mr. Gage. J. D. Hunter, taking the stand, testi fied tbat be, George and Joaepb Hunter nad employed Mr. Gage. Crosa-examined —Waa it not ex pressly etated in writing, Mr. Hunter, that the only duty required from me abould be only such as I would under take if I wero tha district attorney. "Yea, sir." A. W. Siebers, deputy connty olerk, upon taking tbe stand was aeked bis name, to which be replied, "the depnty county clerk." An objection ruled out tbe one question aeked him and be started to leave the stand. "Hold on." aaid the prosecuting at torney. "We waut to croat«-xamine him." "Did you say your name was Deputy County Clerk?" "No, air." "l'uen I hays nothing more to say," faoetioualy concluded Mr. Gage, and the witneia retired. W. ll Cline atated that he had made search to find Dwigbt Olley but tbat he had failed to find him. With the exception of Mr. Street the defense rested. Mr. Guthrie here made a motion that Ihe jury be taken to tbe scene of the homicide tbat they be enabled lo under stand the full bearing of the evidence. The court said that upon the conclu sion of the testimony he would exercise his judgment in that matter. M. T. Bowler, Southern Pacific detec tive, and formerly ou tho police force, gave some highly interesting testimony wben under cross-examination. On direct examination he aimply repeated previous declarations. "Now give the conversation that did occur," said Mr. Guthiie, taking bim in hand. "1 think the first remark I made, (al luding to his visit to Craig on 'be night of his arrest), I aaid 'what kind of a box have you got into now Jack?" and be Bays, 'Well, Bowler, it ia pretty hard when a man can't see hisown children." He aa'd Tbia is the second t me I have been out there. They ran ma off the ranch before, and thia time 1 went pre pared for them.'" "He aaid he went prepared for 'them' cr 'him?' " interposed Mr. Gage. "lie said 'I asked my wife to see the cbi dren, and she remarked; 'Do you know there is a man on the ranch?' and by that time George stepped up on the porch. He pulled hia gun and shot me twice, and then I pulled my guns and went to work ou him.' 1 remarked 'How did you happen to kill the old people?' Well, he says, 'I went to see' " — The conrt —"No, no. no." (Conster nation and wonderment in oourt.) Mr. Phibbi—"No; go on and let him tell tbat." The court —"No, no." Mr. Guthiie—"No; ws objsct." The court—"No, sir; get to this other part of the conversation that you just testified abont." Witneßß, resuming—"He said, 'I want you to go out to the ranch and get the gun. I have acted the man, and I want yot: ti go out to tbe ranch and get the gun.'" A juror—"Plsaae repeat how that was." Witnesa—" 'I want you to go out to the ranch and get the gun. I know what the law is and I want to make a defense.' That waa the language, as near as I can repeat it." Mr. Gathrie—"Wanted you to find the gun that, tho other party had—that George had ?" Witneas—"That Is the way I under stood it." "Did he tell you that he did not shoot at bim until he was forced to protect bia own life?" "The language that he used, be said: 'He pulled hia gun and ahot me twice, end then I pulled my gun and went to work on 'em.' " .The court—"On 'tbem,'or 'him?' " LOS AWrET/Kf*> HERALD*." TUESDAY MORtNTTNO, NOVEMBER 20, 1894. Witnesa —"Went to work on 'tbem.' Hs alio remarked or asked me If hia wife was dsad. I told hltn I understood that ahe waa, and he a»iu : 'I am sorry. If 1 killed my wife 1 did it accident ally.' " "What condition was be in?" "He might have been drunk, but he was aober enough to carry on a conver sation at that time." "Waa he lying down?" "Lying down on a blanket on ths floor, sir." "Wasn't he very much exhausted?" "No, "could not say that he waa. He complained occasionally of his head hurting him." W. I. Jeffries, sergeant of polioe, testi fied to knowing Craig for 10 year- "lie was in my watch for a long time," said witness. "His general reputation was bad." Cross-examined — "His reputation was bad, and he was known as being quarrelsome." "Did tbe chief, the mayor and the oouncil know it?" inquired Mr. Guthrie. "They might have." "Did you ever make complaint?" "I did." ' To whom?" "The commissioners." "Mention some one." "George Knox." "Well, he's dead ; give us a live one." "Mr. Hazard, and in '02 to the com miaaioners." "Wasn't he stationed in tbe rougheet part of the city, in Sonoratown 1" "No, sir; Sonoratown has not bson he roughssc part for four or live year "Didn't you tsll him he was hiß dntv too strictly?" "I did not." Croeß-examined—Do you know if hs bas ever been convioted of disturbing tbe peace? Objection sustained. J. F. Maguire, polios officer for seven yeara, testified to tbe general reputatiou of tbe defendant being bad. Crosa-examined—"He was talked about juat after he was let out from the police force as being quarrelsome. I never beard that he wae too strict and that tbey wanted to get rid of him be cause tbey couldn't work him." Miles Long being recalled again testi fied to living betide Uraig for seven or eight years before the homicide. His genera! reputation waa considered over bearing before he left tbe police force, but after tbat be seemed to become a different man. "Do you know if his relationa with hia wife previous to thia aeparation were peaceable or not ?" inquired Mr. Gage. Objection auetuined. Question waa amended aa follows: "Do you kuo<v if defendant aud his wife quarrelled a few months before tbe homicide?" "I heard them two or tbree times quarrelling, but I can't say whether it waa three or aix or nine months before tbe homicide." Objection auetained and answer or dered stricken out. Afternoon Se.nion. The first witness put forward in the afternoon was Herman Z 1 ber, residing in East Loa Angeles. He testified to knowing defendant for 10 years. His reputation previous to the time of the homicide, according to witness, wae bad. Crosa-examined: "Wbat was hiß general reputation?" inquired Mr. Guuther. "I consider tbat a man tbatisquer relaome, fighting and seekiug trouble, is a bad character." "Don't you know that general repu tation is what people say about a man." "Well, that's wbat they aaid about him." "Can you give tbe name of anyone?" "B. F. Bradd, a colored man." "Anyone elae?" "I can't remember." "And tbe only name you can give out of all those that you nay spoke ill of tha defendant is tbat of a colored man V" "I can't remember. There was P. S. Johnson, too. He lives at San Bernar dino, but bo's in town today." E. V. Norten, a warehouseman on Alameda street, spoke of ihe "quite bad" reputation of the defendant. Croaa-examined —"I knew when he wbb with the railroad, and since, and he used to go on ttiose drinking spells and be quite quarrelsome. 1 can't remem ber names. It was a matter of everyday conversation. Possibly if I thought over the matter I could remember .names." "Take a week or two to think it over," generously oouceded Mr. Guthrie. "You and defendant have not been on friendly terms, have yon?" "Unless he says so, I don't know. 1 bave not thought hia acquaintance de sirable, and have not had anything to do with him for yoars." Alnert Cohen, 49 South Main, a gro cery man, did not have a very clear knowledge of what constituted "general reputation," atyi was retired. James A. Gamer, a colored man, testi fied to living ni 627 Buena Viata Btreet on the 25th of July. "On that even ing." aaid the witness, "I caw him—" Objection interpoß-d to tne inttoduc- J tiou of thia line of examination. The prosecution claimed that tbe defen c having alleged self-defense and accident firths killing, they reserved the right j to show that witb all speed dejtsOijUqt made his way from the ranch mid pro ceeded to carry out his threats of "cleaning out the Hun er family." Counsel desiring to argue tiie point, • and produce authorities, the jury was retired temporarily. From shortly before 2 o'clock until 20 minutes past li o'clock Attorney G g argued and quoted from authorities, The firat cane (00 Call, Wi) hug the People against Gray, and Mr. Gage an nounced that if thia, and oilier cases to be cited, were not exactly similar, It was because it was but very ee.ooin such a wholesale and diabolical crime was committed. The case quoted went to Bhow that in order to make the crimi nal intent apparent, and when such in tent forma an essential element, excep tlonn to the general-rules of evidence are proper and muat be made. In the caae of tne People vs. Waiters (09 Calif , 138) referred to the atmii.-iin of evi dence bearing ou a distiuct offense to prove the offense charged, and the conrt ruled further that the objections that such a course would prejudice the minds of tbe jury could not be held as Bclid. Iv tho case of Far noh vs. the people, Mr. Gage eaid it wae curious that tbe point should have oome up in the state of Illinois, where defend ant belonged. It waa rendered still more curious by Judge Smith saying that he wbb present at that identical trial. The people va. Cunningham (06 Cal. 671) and a multitude of others from the California and common law reports were read and commented upon, to show tbe connection existing in'the defend ant's mind when he eaid he bad "re volvers enough for the whole Hunter family." Attorney Guthrie replied for tbe de fense, and stated that many of the cases quoted by Mr. Gage had been dilated up .n in tne caaC of lie people vs. Lane. Air. Guthrie had not quite euch a long inning as opposing counsel, but be made good use of his time. Iv concluding he drew attention to tbe general rule tbat when the mind of the court is not clear then tbe defendant must have the bene fit of the doubt, rather than let tbe minds of the jury be prejudiced. In ruling upon tiie matter ihe court held that the case at bar waa one that appeared to him to ligitimately form one of those exceptional caae i referred to by counsel in reading authorities. It seemed proper that lor the purpose of proving the criminal intent of tho de fendaut, contended for by the pronecu tion in opposition to tbe plea of sell defense and accident of tbe defenße, it would be valid on the part of the people that testimony be adduced showing tbe connectioo of the prisoner with what transpired immediately following his re turn to town from the Hunter ranch. The hour for adjournment had ar rived and the case went over until ttiie morning. Yeßterday a depnty sheriff was sta tioned at the court room door to limit the number of Bpectatora gaining ad mission to the court room. Throughout tbe day tbe number of ladies iv attend ance was not bo great aa heretofore, apart from those necessarily proeenl aa I being concerned in the case. THE SINGLE TAKERS. TIIKY DISCUSS SOilK ECONOMIC QUESTIONS OF INTEREST. An luvaatment That Paid Bavnnty-U»u l'hOllllud iVr C ur — lilt Claims or the Naw Cult. One of the largest «ulienceß of tha series of single tax meetings assembled at Uniiy. church last night, nn 1 en joyed an intellectual and musical treat. In attendance were intelligent men and women leprsseuting nearly all the re spectable, walkß of life. The exercises were opened with a eoul atirring eong by Prof. Jameß G. Clark, which so delighted the audience that the poet bailadist was obliged to respond to a recall. Hia sinning later in the evening waa also greeted with the most hearty applauie. The chairman introduced as tbe tpeaker of tbe evening Dr. A. P. Mil ler, formerly of Oregon, who for abont three-quarters of an hour addressed the audience on A New Declaration. Tho speaker eloqueutly painted a picture of social conditions at ths preaent time, which he thought were deplora ble, considering the vast natural re sources of this country. Like other epeakera who view the eituation from a poculistic standpoint, he thought the chief cause of tho trouble wae too much competition and a lack of co-operation. He also advocated the organization by the general government of wbat be called a great "peace army," in which all unemployed men could enlist and then be supplied by tha government with employment continuously and with tools to work witb. Dr. Miller's address was scholarly, well delivered and listened to with close attention, in the discussion that followed, however, the Bingle taxets pointedly diasented from tbe epeaker'e iheoriea, and iv their own eatimation completely refuted them. They insist ed that the chief cause of existing evils is landlordism, and that the only ade quate remedy is tbe abolition of that cause. Brief speeches on that line of argument were made by Irs B. Wood, j C. A. Miller and others. The remarks of each epeaker were well received aud frequently applauded by a large percent age of tbe audience. HilpbE. Govt called attention to a couple of atriaing object Jeseonß in tbis city. He said: "A lew daya ago 1 read two itema in a local daily paper which afford food for profitable thought on tbe linea of taxation. One item described a line improvement on a costly business block which was being made by the owner, nho is nu enterprising woman. The writer adds that the miner of the building deserves and will receive much Pittite Irom the public for thus heuuti fviug her property. But how will ihe city authorities expresa their approba tion? Simply by raising the assessment pn ttiat building and increasing the fine which the owner will have to pay for beit.g enterprising. And that iB what our unj'.iet and idiotic system of taxa- I tion always doss in such cises. - "In tbe same paper 1 read of a real es- j tale sale of a valuable comer near the j bu-ine-is center of the city. A few years I ago o resident of Los Angelas bought a J large corner lot for $50. After holding it out of use while other people built up i the city, he has now cold one-half of j that property fjr tho sum of $25,000. He atill i.'tuns the other half, wnicii is worth even more than the one just Bold. Now. here is it case whero a man by Bell ing for $25 000 that which cost him $25, has mnde 75 000 per cent ou his invest- j ment,less tho tazea. And as the land , brought no income to the owner, the asses ore touched it very gently, r.s is ; their cust .m in euch cases. So here we have two very el ruling object less jus. In oue instance individual enter prise iv punished uo il it were ac imp. luthe other case the laud owner ie paid by the community for having kept everybody cite from using that particular piece ol ground during a eeriea of yeara. I say paid by tbo com munity, because it is au undeniable lact thut the vuliiu attached to ail laud ia due outitely to the growth aim entor pr.ae of the community, uud uot to pri- Vttto ownership. The chair announced tbat next Mon day evening the subject of woman nud" rage avoid lo up for consideration. Mrs. Alice McComas will address the audience in behalf of woman's enfran chisement, and Hon. Abbot K.iiney and perhaps other Bpeakete will oppose it, the excetoisea to be enlivened with music. Alter another delightful pong by Profoaeor Chirk the lurire audience dispersed, evidently well eatistied with the exercises. THE ANNUAL BAZAAR.

ON THE ROAD FOR FIFTEEN DAYS. The Efficacy ot Sterilized At mosphere. Result of the 5000-Miles' Journey of a Test Car. Tbe Inspection of tin ZTptrlmentkl shipment Mads by Ist* Htato Board of Trad* at Oakland. After • journey of over 5000 milea, re quiring 15 days, the experimental car loaded with frnita and flowere which elarted from Oakland over two weeks ago, aaya the Ban FrancißCO Call, re turned from ita trip to New Orleans. Thiß car waa loaded witb tbe purpose in view of teating thoroughly the efficacy of eterilized atmosphere as a eubetitute for ice for uae in refrigerator care, and the recults secured were in every way of Ihe moat eatiafactory nature. There waa a representative crowd of gentlemen present when the car wae opened yeaterday morning, including the president and other ofllcials of the state board oi trade, several gent emeu who are interested in the carbonic acid plan recently tested in the came manner aa the one now spoken of, and a number of tbe head officials of the Southern Pacific company. Dr. Parkin 9, wbo waa the in ventor of the process under coneidera tion, was also precent. He superintended the fitting un of the cai and ita loading, and went with it all ibs way through to N-iw Orleans in order to see that everything was all right and to observe closely tbe eO'scte of the pro« cess upon the contents of the car. Dr. Perkins said that the car had been opened about 30 times during the trip, and for thia reason tbe condition of ita conteute now was manifestly not a fair teataa to the merits of the plan, but it proved upou examination that no ex planation of this character was neces sary, as both'the fruit and flowers were found to be in a mGst excellent con - dition. There waa hardly an article in tbe car which showed the slightest indication of decay. Boxes of grapes were taken out which were as firm as the day tbey were packed and which proved to bave retained all their uaual flavor. Dr. Per kins etated that theae grapes were picked in the early morning while tbe dew was still fresh upon them, and tbis statement brought out tbe remark from one of the g.ntiemen preaent that tbey should bave been firat dried in the sun before packing, aa much injury was likely to result from the moisture spoken of after being packed for a day or two. No trace of bad effects iv tbia particular were noticeable. Thia was also true of all the frnita in the car, and, as for tbe flowers, ttiey still retained their fra grance and fresh appearance. Splendid chrysanthemums were brought to the light without a drooping leaf, looking, as tbe onlookers said, as if they had juat been plncked from the garden. Trie most interesting phase of thia ex periment rests in tbe probable coat of shipments, and if what is claimed for tbe process proves true, the iruit-grow era and lloriata of this state will bave great cause for self-congratulation. It is aaid that the maximum coat of ship ment by tbis process will be $25 a car, and it is thought that $20 will in moat cases be amply sufficient to pay the coat in this respect. Shipment in the old manner by refrigerator cars costs ap proximately $200, tbua making a caving of at least $175 a car. Frequently in pacaing a car with ice as much aa two tons are wasted without securing any result, that is, it requires tbat amount to get tho " n to the necessary temperature he fruit can be put in, Anotln ' mag nitude by the new pr... ia that uf space, aa no ice tin ~« -quired, thus giving a car a capuciiy (ally one quarter greater than it possesses under tne ore en; methods. This, of course, will necessitate the construction of new cara especially lit ed up for the purpose designated. Competent authorities state that there are each year on an average 20,000 cara of fruit ehippod out of California, and estimating tbe saving on each car at ; 13li, Ihe neat sum of $3,000,000 is saved to the grower. A feature of the sterilized atmosphere process which will have quite a bearing upon its succeea ie that under the meth od fruite, it ia claimed, will ripen while in tranait, the effect of the air being at tbe same time to prevent, or rather in gieat measure retard the work oi decay. the greatest interest was minitested in tbe experiments, he Dr. Perkins re ports, not only by the commißßion men of New Orleans, but by all the fruit growers who inspected the cara. During the abort Btay in that city dc/.iua of thorn looked over the contents of tha cars, and all along the line where stops were made inquiries were frequent as to the conditiou of the shipment. It is probable that another shipment will be made soon to Chicago, after eouie necss sary changes suggested by the firet tiip have been made. W. A. McUuire, a well known citizen of McKay, Ohio, is of tbe opinion that tbere is nothing aa good, for children troubled with colds or croup as Cham berluin'a Cough Remedy.

AO YEARS THE Sl ,NDARD. J. T. SHEWARD TDEFORE TIIE SPRING TRADE opens we expect to ■■—* clean np every dollar's worth of goods that has been in the least slow selling. Some of the finest g>ods have been slow selling the past season, owing to the general de j pressiou in business all over the world. The finest goods have been the slowest sellers owing to the expense attached to them. The price has been in the way. In order to close this class of goods we have been pruning the prices in all i directions. The most expensive goods have felt the strong i est reductions and are now the best sellers in the house. Dress goods that have been selling all the way from $ i to $2 a yard now 75c. Every day these goods are going out. : They are the finest in the house. The}' are the best bargains 'at the reduced price. The dress goods' trade is more than double what it was a year ago. We advertise to secure busi ; ness. We advertise facts in so doing. We are doing a re- I liable business. When we say we are selling cloaks at a small profit we state exact facts. The cloak department is carrying double the goods it should. We are going to close every cloak in the house before the spring goods arrive. With this object in view we are cutting the life out of the profits and are doing a largely increased business. We have j a special line of cloaks for $5, $7 and $10 that are extra value for the money. We are showing the best values you S ever saw in jersey ribbed underwear for 33 l Ac and 50c. The always sell for 50 per cent more money- We are selling j a line of ladies' felt hats ior 25c that have been selling for ;$1 to $3 each. We are selling a few things in ladies' muslin ! underwear at one-quarter the oiiginal price. There are only a ; very few garments left. We want to close them today. We have j a number of cloaks for children that are being closed out at I a great bargain. They are good styles and good goods. We have too many children's cloaks. The price we are now sel ing them lor should give a large increase in the children's cloak trade. A little lot of ribbons. A few choice things in fine jet trimmings. A few remnants of silks and velvets, embroidery silks, pon pons aud stamped linens are where the good values are to be had. Not many in any one line. Just a few choice things we want to turn into money. Some are marked down one-half to close. You will find them extra values. A few remnants of table linens. A few napkins and fine fringed table cloths will bear investigation. They are cheap. Il<> ill I.s AM, MSMIKIS. liV/J Ij\ ' c week. Ulesrautiy furnished. Bulls free. First-class. Price* reasonable.
