Hip Initiative Count Herbert
JtUiniirrk on tho (Juration.
Berlin, I'eb. 15 Count Von Mlrlnch, Gor
man Consetvatlve, Introduced a resolution
In the relchstng to-ilny Inatitietlng the
federal government", of Germany to Issue
invitations for nn International mottetnrv
congress, to take measures to bring about
the rehabilitation of silver nn n circulating
mcillum. Mlrbtch said that the moment
boil now nrrlved for Germany to take the
Initiative In settling this question, which Is
of great Importance, lll-metalllsm would
cause the rise of nil prices In" I'tiglnnd,
where gold was the currency. Agrtciiltute
would be ruined If the present ostein was
maintained. America would cither absorb
Germany's cold, or adopt a pure sliver
ntnndard, and capture the whole Eastern
trade. Other supporters of the resolution
Indorsed the proposition, that Herman,
had taken at the Paris monetiry con
ference In 1&S3, namely, that the regarded
ii n International nsreement upon a ratio be
tween Bold and silver desirable.
Dr. I. Theodore llaith, Genmn radical
unionist, teald the lirussels conference had
ptoved a llasco, nnd the conference hold In
Germany In 1S3I was fruitless. There was
little or no connection between the depies
Flon In husbandry and the Introduction of
he sold standard.
Count Ilerbirt Hasmnrck said the failure
of the Drupels conference was partly due
to the ab-enco of nn entente between tho
powers which took part In It. The Her
iln congress of l&TS arrived at a result be
cause Great Hiltaln and Russia had pre
viously reached a basis for an .iBreement.
An Intern ulonal entente upon the currency
question would he arrived at In the course
ot time, and In tho ense of Great Hrltaln
the feeling was KrowInB in fnor of bi
metallism. In conclusion, Count Herbert
"It Elves me great pleasure to show how
waimly my filend, lialfour, has taken up
the cause In that country."
Ilerr Schoenl.ink, Soeinl Democrat, con
temled that the Introduction of bl-metalllsm
would lead to a fall in the value of cur
rency, and would promise nothhiB but a
hopeless future to tho worklngman.
Dr. I.Ieber, of the Center party, said
the Centrists wIHInBly supported the meas
ure, because they saw In the proposed con
ference an attempt to remove the dlftlcul
tles In regnrd to the monetary standard a
question which was of 'paramount import
ance to commerce.
Cnnncollor von Hohonlohe declared he
was Inclined to favoi.ible consideration for
n proposal for nn interchaiiKe of views on
tho subject with those states which were
concerned in tho silver question. The de
bate was then adjourned.

has been more dlsenlon and Interest ills

Washington, Teb. 13 There seems to be
little doubt that vesterday's fight was the
final rally In tho campaign ot the admin
istration Democrats for financial leBlsln
tlon by this congress. Jlembers who are
suppoed to know the mind of the presi

to attempt to "-ecure nnv sort of legisla
tion for the treasury nnd they asseit un
hesitatingly thnt he will not again recom
mend longresslonal action of any sort upon
the finances, Thesa Democrats are dis
posed to put upon th'. Republicans the
blame for fnllute ot the i evolution re

sult ot the vote .In the house upon tho
bond bill upon the future course ot the
senate on the financial question. Tho most
generally cxpres-ed opinion on the lit pub
lican side Is that .inv effort to take up tho
financial question will be futile, while
Democrats generally expressed the belief
that the action ot tho house would not
control the moveinentb of tho sen ite In nny
w.i). Senator Jones was outspoken In an
nouncing his Intention to move to take up
his unrestricted coinage bill befoie llnal
adjournment, but would not undertake to
s ly just when he will make the move Ho
reiterated, however, that the niitl-sllver
men would have to either nllow the ques
tion to bo considered or lllllbustei (igiinst
It It appears probnblo In view of the ex
pieKSlons of some of the moie radical band
advocates among the Republican senituis
that the latter oouit-e would be lesnrted to
If necessary to prevent a vote. The Mlvcr
senators on both sides of the chamber
semis to be uitlrely willing to test the
strength of the uilvei question on the
Jones bill, but there wore ludlcitlons that
some of them might have opposed a vote

that suggested by rienator Jones and not
by unanimous consent, as was at first
hoped The proh iblllties nre, therefoie,
that some me ins will be found dm In,: the
next two weeks nnd probably early next

that no vote will be i cached The bond
men say, almost without exception, thnt
In view of the notion of the house, It Is
plain that no bond legislation Is prohibit!

It may be almost nuthoiltatlvely stated,
however, that If Secretin y Carlisle desires
a temporary expedient to provide for the
lmniedlite wants of the treasury It will be

the sundry civil bill providing for short

Trading Made Easy.
Nowadays tradinp; ir. so easy,
made so here by the conven
ient, handy and economical
methods employed.
You can come to the Storo
and get about everything you
need without jjointj out from
under ihe roof of the big house.
Isn't that making it easy for
you to trade here? You're
saved the annoyance of shop
ping around, which, you know
by experience, isn't pleasant,
especially when there's slush
or mud. Of course, if there
was anything to be gained by
this shopping around, we'd
have nothing more to say, for
then 'twould be a duty you
would owe to yourself. But
you know as well as we do that,
quality compared with quality,
prices are' always the lowest
It's handy for you to trade
here, in that you can find wo
keep nearly all the various
kinds and qualities exhibited
before you, so that you can
compare them side by side and
determine in the most intelli
gent way which to select. Then,
too, you run no risk at all, for
if your judgment should be
wrong you can get your money
back or get the amount you
bought credited to your ac
count if the goods be returned
at once in a merchantable con
dition. Tell us, is anything
fairer than that?
It's economical for you to
trade here. Why i Because the
small prices we mark upon our
goods will enable you to get
more for your money than you
can possibly get for it any
where else. You see, we buy
direct from the maker we
alone stand between you We
have the outlet for large quan
tities of merchandise and the
makers know we pay cash for
our goods. We buy and sell
reliable goods and stand back
of every transaction. Where
else are you treated as liberally
as that? Do you know of a
store anywhere in the U. S.
that extends to you or will ex
tend to you 'guarantees of pro
tection as liberally as we do
here? The protection thrown
mound each purchase, let it be
ever so simple or ever so large,
is a guarantee that the goods
and the prices are right.
Again, you've a big idvant
age when you want to make
selections to have a varietv of
patterns, colorings and qualities
to pick over aggregating as
much, and often more, than
the combined stocks of all the
dry goods stores put together
in our city.
We are writing this to show
you why you should trade here
(if you're not already doing so).
We believe every reader of
this is interested in making the
dollars he or she has to spend
go as far as possible. Wo
don't believe that you would
knowingly pay a cent more for
an article than it is worth, and
we don't mean you shall. It
is right, it is a duty you owe to
yourself to buy for as little as
you can any article your wants
demand. Did you ever hear of
anyone trying to see how lit
tle they could get for their
money? No, but how much,
and that's why you should come
hero and look for yourself be
fore spending a cent for any
