Therefore it is with especial gratification that we announce the receipt of our first great shipment of Furniture specially ordered by us many months ago or dered on the earnest solicitation of three different manu facturers who persistently claimed that they must have orders to keep their hands employed during the dull months. That was when wood, hard ware, glass and (the pity of it) even wages were lower. With others all around us pushing up their retail prices as fast as they can, we are now plunging into a great campaign of lowest cash selling, because we have ordered and coming at the old prices more than twice the amounts of furniture we sold in the past twelve months. We bought 33 per cent under the ruling prices of last spring. If you now buy regular outside of this store you are taking on additional lots through the recent advances of 60 per cent on lumber, 30 per cent on glass and 100 per cent on hardware. To open the Labor Day sale we display a few of our matchless money savers. Miscellany. 1 TO-MORROW WE INAUGURATE A MAMMOTH SALE OF S strictly high grade meats.

"JACKSON" RISES TO REMARK WANTS TO KNOW TO WHOM INVITA TIONS ARE TO BE SENT. Knrntval Krerre Actively at Work Muaio Will Aealn Be a. Feature of the Knrnival A Grand. Mnalc Ball to Be Held This Year. to figure on their decorations for Carnival week, and many have already decided to have the work done by the official deco rators of the K. K K. More interest than usual seems to be felt among the owners of larce office buildings. The city park board will spread itself in the way of flags and other suitable decorations In the parks and public squares. Music will again be a feature of the car nival, and sixteen bands have already been engaged for the parade, and a band of forty pieces will play In Convention hall for the carnival ball. The chairman of the music committee has received applications from over 100 bands all over the West and Southwest for representation in tho fes tivities. Much interest is being shown in the grand masked ball of the Karnival Krewe, and to those outside of Kansas City ad mission will ba only upon special invita tion, and it is likely that a generous space will be reserved for spectators. Exhibi tion space in the street fair is still selling rapidly, and the directory announces that bids for concessions will be received only a few days longer. The Krewe expects to btgin the grading of the vacant lots on Baltimore avenue for the street fair, and bids have been called for in that connection. The Priests of Pallas posters, a reproduc tion of which was given In The Journal three weeks ago, have been received from the printers and will be distributed to-morrow. The first Installment consists of 20,000 of the posters and it is probable that more will be ordered within a few weeks. Priests of Pallas headquarters begins to assume a bulness-like air that betokens many mya. tcrlous actions of "Mr. Jackson." who is the chief mundane representative of Pallas Athene. Since the beginning of the construction of the twenty floats for the Priests of Pal las parade, work has gone forward rapidly and now it is announced that nearly every thing Is ready for the triumphant entrance of the goddess Into the city of her adoption. The twenty-two bands that will enliven the parade have all been engaged and other preliminaries arranged until nothing re mains except to beat the tom-tom and wave the mystic wand that will bring forth tho beautiful and wierd procession from the somber doors of the "den." "Mr. Jackson" also whispers from under the hemp whiskers of his mask that all who have subscribed to the Priests of Pal las fund should send in the names of thoso to TVhom they wish Invitations sent. These Invitations carry out the association's idea to furnish a handsome souvenir invitation each year that may be kept as a useful and pretty memento of the goddess' yearly visit to Kansas City. This year the committee' has been particularly fortunate In Its se lection and It is safe to say that none of those who are lucky enough to receive the Invitation souvenir this year will be dis appointed. , Railroads have agreed to make a special rate for the fall festivities within a radius of "250 miles to the east and north and 300 miles to the south and west. "Mr. Jackson" said yesterday: "The ball this year will, of course, be the crowning feature of tho week's enjoyment. For the first time In our experience of twelve years we have now a suitable place to hold the ball. We are going to sprend on lt and lt will be an occasion long to be remembered by those who attend.

There will be a reorganization of the church choir under Mrs. Boucher, and it is ex pected that her engagement will draw much fine talent to it.

He Discusses tha Matter Thoroughly. In an interesting article contributed to the last Issue of the Dry Goods Econo mist, W. B. Thayer, of the Emery-Blrd-Thayer Dry Goods Company, discusses the recent department store law as follows: "Tho Missouri legislature, before ad journment In May, passed a bill commonly known as tho department store bill, which became a law 120 days after May 16. By this act an attempt Is mado to classify all lines of goods usually kept in depart ment stores, and these classes formed into groups, of which there are twenty-eight, and Axes a tax of not less than $300 nor mora than $500 on each group. Some of the provisions of the bill are: It shall only apply to cities, having a population of 50,000 or over; it shall not apply to estab lishments where not more than fifteen per sons are employed. "The injustice and Iniquity of such a law is plainly visible, fraught with dangers on all sides, many of which can only dimly be foreseen. And while directed in this Instance at the department stores, such legislation Is a threatening menace to ev ery industry in the land. If the smaller merchants are protected against the big stores, the mechanic might, with equal justice, claim protection against tha large industrial concerns; the stage driver against the railroad: the blacksmith against the great forges; the shoemaker against the large shoe factories, and so on. And where would be the end? Any taxa tion, the object of which Is to prescribe the limit of business enterprise, is sub versive to public interests, and, above all, a violation of those inalienable rights guar anteed by our constitution. "The signers of the Declaration of Inde pendence declared that. 'All men are cre ated equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights: and among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.' The same principles are reiterated in the constitu tion of the United States. 'Nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law." "Then, again, the constitution of Mis souri emphasizes such principles and de clares that 'AH persons have a natural right to life, liberty and enjoyment of tho gains of their own Industry: that to give secur ity to these things is the principal office of government, and that when government does not confer this security, lt falls of Its chief design.' "The word 'liberty' here used do3 not simply mean freedom from incarceration or slavery, but is used in its broadest sense, intending to confer those rights of liberty of action so essential to our happi ness. It means that an American citizen may engage in any occupation or business he chooses, conduct lt as he pleases, so long as he does not encroach upon the rights and privileges of others. The big stores have proven successful, and will go on steadily increasing in business. The people generally like them, they like to go where they can buy many articles cheap ly, and the best evidence that they are a benefit Is that people patronize them. If they did not they could not exist. "The small stores, where properly man aged with sufficient capital, do weft; fully as well In proportion as some large ones. There Is room for both. But a few, who spend most of their time In denouncing tha big stores, are perhaps the least competent to manage small ones. All canrot be big department stores, necessarily most store3 must be small ones, and most men must me satisfied with making a living. There 13 'room on top.' The history of nearly all. If not all. of the big department stores show that they began In a very small way. So let those who are dissatisfied with their lot aspire to higher achievements and get in tho procession, for the big department stores, the true method of merchandising, have come to stay. W. B.
