"Treachery and perfidy Inside the party accounts for the party’s defeat In many states In Tuesday’s elections. The Wash ington Post tells the story, anticipating the result, on the eve of the election. Ac cording to the Advertiser New Jersey was lost because Senator Smith of that state was not In accord with Mr. Cleve land on all occasions. Silver was not an Issue In New Jersey. Senator Smith was not an Issue. But the result and effects of- Mr. Cleveland’s policy was an Issue. The depression brougt about by the Wall street gamblers and some misguided bankers outside of Wall street to secure such legislation as would destroy silver as a money of final redemption, and brought about the revolution In such states os New Jersey: but In Kentucky the administration forces determined that no silver man should win and through treachery and perfidy have perhaps ac complished their purpose In that state."

Pioneers of Low Prices, Fall Hats In New and Stylish Shapes. A hat is one of the most profitable articles sold by furnishing: goods dealers. A profit is made on the style and tone of it, as well as the quality. Our trade policy in the selling of Hats, as in everything else we handle, is just the reverse of this. Buying as we do in immense quantities, we secure prices not obtainable by other dealers. Selling as we do at a small margin of profit enables us to name lower prices than anyone else in the business. Men’s STIFF HATS in all the newest Fall shapes, 75c, $1.00, $150 and Upwards S ft Hats, 35c and Upwards. Children’s F.ncy Cais, 19c ar.d Upwards. Our assertion that our prices are lower than those of other dealers is a positive fact. We ll gladly prove it if you’ll give us a chance. The fact is there is no house in the country that gives the value we do In hats, and our large and grow ing trade is the best thing we can submit In evidence of this fact. J. L.
