Furniture is rising in price and rising fast no one dis
putes that. 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.

board will spread itself in the way of flags

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

will be reserved for spectators. Exhibi

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

The twenty-two bands that will enliven
the parade have all been engaged and other

AN UNJUST MEASURE
SO W. B. THAYER DECLARES DE
PARTMENT STORE LAW.
Contributes an Interesting Article to
the Dry Goods Economist, In
Which. He Discusses tha
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
"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. THAYER."

John Donellr nnd a Customer Dis
agree, With the Result That
Former Is Arrested.
John Donnelly was arrested yesterday
by Officers Snead and Callahan on a state
warrant issued by Justice Walh?, charging?
him with obtaining money under false pre
tenses. Until a week ago Donnelly was
employed by the American Tailoring Com
pany, at Seventh and Main streets, in. or
ganizing suit clubs.
L. Levison. a saloonkeeper at Third and
Walnut streets, swore out the warrant for
Donnelly's arrest. He claims to have paid
Donnelly $7 some time In June on a suit
of clothes and was told by Donnelly that
he was entitled to a suit. When Levison
learned that he was not longer connected
with the American Tailoring Company ho
caused a warrant to be Issued for his
L. Fowler, an employe of the Pabst
Brewing Company, also charges that Don
nelly defrauded him of $2 In the same
manner. Only a few days ago Donnelly
organized a suit club among the employes
of tha Pabst Brewing Company and called
yesterday to receive the first payment of
$30 from the members of the club. It was
then that he was placed under arrest. Ha
was committed to the county jail to await
a hearing In Justcla WalUi' court to-morrow.
