DRY GOODS CO.'S
This Store will be open for business Saturday
evening until 9:30 and during the four evenings
previous to Christmas for the accommodation of
those who cannot come during the day.
It takes something more than exaggerated advertisements to win con
fidence and draw large crowd? of buyers; If not; we should be "left badly in
the cold." As It is, our trade in Holiday Gifts is immense. We have the
collection of new Roods. We make the
"Prices Which Tell."
A little setback yesterday, owing to stormy weather, but TO-DAY we are
promised cold temperature, which should start everyone anew to. make their
purchases intended for gifts. Don't postpone until next week if you can pos
sibly help it. Thousands will, as usual, but It is not to their advantage to
do so, because this big store will surely be crowded in every department.

ARRANGING TO PROSECUTE.
TIIBV WILL BE CIIAIIGED WITH
Tlila la a Violation of the Corrupt
Practices Act and They May Be
Kept Out of Office and
Pined and Sentenced
Another row has broken out in the Dem
ocratic family that threatens to produce
dire results for at least two of the men
returned as elected to offices In November,
and may prevent both from -taking those
offices. The two men are-Robert L. Stone,
sheriff-elect, and SamuelJH. Chiles, the
Incoming county marshal. If the fight now
being made on them Is successful. It means
that William H. Sloan will servo Jackson
county as marshal and Ed Eylar will per
form the duties of sheriff for the next two
Men who were promised positions during
tho campaign and not given them have
mado revelations of the ante-election prom
ises, and attorneys who mean business
are said to have colleeted numerous affi
davits proving the promises conclusively
and are now completing preparations for
proceedings against both Stone and Chiles
under the corrupt practices act of 1S93 to
prevent them' from taking the offices oa
the opening of the new year. Stone knows
of the fight that is to be made on him, and
to some of his friends he has expressed
fear that the enemies who are after him
may make him plenty of trouble If they
really push the fight. That he Is deeply
worried over .the matter is known to Tils
friends, and 'was freely talked of yester
day all over the city. The same state of
facts substantially appears in tho move
ment against Sam Chiles, and his friends
In the city are alarmed at the prospect of
having their gang methods of campaign
preparation Inquired into In a court of
justice, where an honest effort would be
mado to sift out the truth.
Nearly all of tho party workers were dis
cussing the matter yesteraay and it was
stated that the affidavits that had been
secured and were to be used as the basis
for the actions were In the hands of At
torney J. M. Callahan, of Independence,
and from tho best Information obtainable
by the gang managers the statement was
made that they appeared to be very con
clusive that certain deputyshlps and minor
positions had been promised during the
campaign for the purpose of cementing a
certain alliance of elements through which
Stone secured the election and which also
carried Chiles through safely. It was told
openly during the campaign that promises
were being made freely and that official re
ward was being offered for Influence and
votes and It is a fact generally accepted
by these who know of tho "practical"
methods of gang politics that tho reports
were wholly true and would be suscepti
ble of proof without much trouble.
It Is also a fact that after the election
tho newly elected Democrats were called
together for counsel and to listen to the
plan the gang boss had arranged for the
distribution of deputyshlps. There were
deputies appointed for certain offices that
were never thought of by the officers them
selves, and were not wanted . either, but
wero taken because, the, bosses had' prom
ised positions and tho promises had to be
fulfilled. Tho only man who fought the
gang division and apportionment of depu
ties was Charles J. Bower, the assessor,
who told the gang he owed it nothing and
bad nothing to pay, and proposed to ap
point such deputies as he chose. He said
he would not allow the gang to name a
single man for tils office. He even went
farther, and told the gang to go to Hal
ifax, or any other place congenial, and
left the room In a rage. It left the gang
In a tangle, as It had promises out that
could not be fulfilled, and the understand
ing is tho trouble grew out of that fight.
Tho gang had given more promises than
It had positions, andthe trouble has been
brewing since that time, and finally when
tho positions were apportioned and certain
w orkers of long years' standing were thrust
aside to make places for representatives of
a faction of recent conversion there arose
a mighty howl and the fight was on from
No matter whether the promise made Is
fulfilled or not, the law makes tho promise
the offense, and every promise Is a separate
offense and there Is liability for each one.
If any man made a promise for himself or
allowed any man who represented him to
make any promises or use any other hope
of reward or profit, direct or understood,
ho violated the act and cannot hold ' the
office to which he was elected. The law
was framed to stop that sort of work and
It is direct and plain in its provisions and
sweeping in Its scope. The penalties are
severe and if the proof of the charges be
made plain there would be a hard nut for
the gang lawyers to crack to keep their
men from serious trouble.
It Is said that both men mentioned, as
well as others, used more money during
the campaign than was legal, and that
phase of the trouble may also be added to
the other and make a double dose for them.
The penalty for using too much money Is
forfeiture of the office and -ante-election
promises are listed as bribery and punished
accordingly with fine and Imprisonment.
Whether or not the proof of the charges
can be brought forth remains to be seen,
but the fact that the alleged affidavits were
in the possession of a well known fighting
Democrat from Independence caused much
trouble among the. gangsters of the city"
yesterday and they held many secret cau
cuses to hunt for a way out.
The law provides that if a man eharged
withi either of these offenses be prevented
by legal proceedings from taking the office.
It goes to tho man who received the next
highest vote, which. In the two cases,
would mean that Ed Eylar would succeed
John P. O'Neill as sheriff and William M.
Sloan would take tho office of marshal.
Sloan was once fairly elected to this office,
but fraud and forgery of returns prevented
him possessing it.
'Pretty ns Girls and Stately ns Tonne
"The women are often very pretty as
girls, and some of them mnke stately
joung mothers. They work generally In
groups of three or four, cooking, white
washing, weaving or painting pottery.
They seem to have a good deal to chatter,
about, and their smiling faces are very
agreeable. They have most excellent white
teeth. Their ceremonial dress is very' pict
uresque, especially the costume of the
Acoma and Isleta girls." So says Hamlin
Garland In the October number of the La
dles' Home Journal, of the Pueblo Indians.
