Talk is Cheap!
But QUALITY counts in CLOTHING as in everything
else. Reason it out for yourself whether you are not more
likely to buy to the best advantage from a BIG STOCK
like OURS. The richest and choicest garments from all the
leading makers (for we are not confined to the output of any
one firm, but can and do take our pick of the products of all
the best of them,) than from the meager lines of second or
third-rate stuff to be found elsewhere.
Spring suits and overcoats for men in all of the latest shapes
and most popular fabrics, cut right, made right, and will fit
right, and at the right prices; $io to $40, and satisfaction
guarantee at each and every price. Try us once and you'll
say good-bye to the custom shops.

DEPRECIATION IK VALUES.
That, with Few Exceptions, Was the Tone
of the Past Financial Week.
New Yoek, April 28. There seems to be a
belief among tho speculative fraternity that
the trusts are to be treated tenderly by the
tariff makers, and consequently the indus
trials are at present the favorite group of
stocks of the traders for a rlso. It is confi
dently asserted that refined sugar is to be folly
protected, that tho bonded period is to be
Axed to suit the distillers, and that the duty
on lead is to bo increased one-half cent per
pound. The trading on the stock exchange
to-day was mainly in Sugar, Lead, Distilling,
and Chicago Gas, with only small trading in
the railway list, chiefly in St. Paul. Burling
ton and Qulncy and Reading.
Sugar monopolized almost one-half of the
transactions and was In good' buying demand,
making an advance of 3jf per cent, to 101,
and closing within )i per cent, of the highest
price touched. The preferred stock made a
gain of i per cent. Lead roo 2 for the
common and 2 for the preferred, closing at
the top figure. Distilling fluctuated between
25 and 25, the last salo being at 25. Chi
cago Gas rose J-f per cent, the last bclnp tho
best price of tho day. Ameri:on Tobacco re
corded on Improvement of 1 per cent on
the day and Rubber preferred 1 per cent
Consolidated Gas lost 1 per cent
Tho trading In the railway list was dull
and uninteresting, the only changes in the
day's transactions in excess of a fraction be
ing a decline of I per cent, in New Jersey Cen
tral, Louisville, Aew Albany and uregon
Short Line. St Paul was sold in small lots
by London houses, receding and reeoter
'ng (. Burlington and Qulncy moved with
in a limit of . Comstock Tunnel declined
1 per cent The market was in better tono In
tho late dealings than earlier in tho day and
closed fairly strong.
Tho result of the week's trading has been in
the main a depreciation in values. A notablo
exception, however, is Sugar, tho common
stock having made a gain of OK per cent.
and the preferred 3 per cent. Interior Con
duit has advanced '; Alton andTerre Haute
7, and Laclede Gas preferred, American Dis
trict Telegraph and Comstock Tunnel 2 per
cent The mora important declines aro 1 per
cent Northwest; IK do preferred, 1 St.

Eugene Gnddls .Meets with Repulse in His
Efforts at Reinstatement.
Tho case of Eugeno E. Gaddis, petitioner
for writ of mandamus to compel Secretary
Carlislo to reinstate him to an $1,800 cleric
ship in the Treasury Department.came up yes
terday beforo Judge Bradley la circuit conrt,
Mr. Gaddis was represented by Messrs.
Jlilian and Beall, while Assistant Attorney
GeneralWhitney apiarod for Secretary Car
lisle. Tho petition of tho ex-clerk was read by
his attorneys, and recited that Mr. Gaddis
was appointed to a position in the Treasury
Department ten jears ago, that ho nttained
tho 81,600 grade, and was transferred to Civil
Service Commission work through hi3 ef
ficiency. Secretary Carlisle's answer was read by Mr.
Whitney. The answer reserves all objection
to tho jurisdiction of the court in the prem
ises. Secietary Carlislo refutes in general
tho allegations of petitioner as to attempts
made to coerce his political action or senti
ments. Secretary Carlisle asserted Hint tho dis
missal of Mr. Gaddis was made upon recom
mendation of tho ltegister of the treasury, to
increase tho efficiency of tho service, and
denies that the dismissal was contrary to
Ho denies the allegations of petitioner as to
promises made by Mr. Tillmau to the effect
that if Mr. Gaddis would become a Democrat
he would be retained as a second-class clerk.
The petitioner's statement that Chief Clerk
Carlisle and tho chief of the appointment di
vision said that there was no charge against
Gaddis' efficiency is asserted to be false.
Mr. Whitney objected to the reading of an
affidavit made by II. II Smith, late assistant
register of the Treasury, upon the ground
that it tended to Introduce cumulative evi
dence without proper notice.
The court said that the arguments should
be confined to tho question as to whether tho
dismissal of Mr. Gaddis was a violation of
the law, and that tho burden rested upon pe
titioner to show that he was unlawfully de
posed. The arguments in the case consumed the
greater part of the day, but it was not shown
that the civil service laws and regulations
hod been violated In the dismissal of Mr.
Judge Bradley, therefore, denied tho ap
plication of Mr. Gaddis. Mr. Beall announced
that he, would note an appeal, with a view to
placing the case in tho hands of the court of
appeals or the United Stales Supreme Court.

A Desperate Act!
M Readers of THE TIMES
Take Due NotiGe!
At 8 o'clock Monday morning we open our doors upon
a slaughter sale of spring and summer clothing absolutely
without parallel in the annals of the clothing trade. Right
here in the face of summer, when our factory in Syracuse,
N. Y., should be running on full time, we are forced to the
wall. Every wheel has stopped three hundred of our
workmen are out of employment and the last stitch of
cloth is made up. Fifty cases of our own elegant clothing,
the very LIFE BLOOD of our business, is spread out on our
counters this morning and' offered for sale FOR WHAT IT
WILL BRING. We are going to sell these
50 Cases of
Clothing at Prime
Factory Cost !
We are going to guarantee every garmentfor fit for
wear for style and we can afford to for they are OURS.
The ridiculous prices which they are going to sell for are no
indication of their true value but they are a stern object
lesson of the uncertainty of trade. This immense stock of
spring and summer clothing, not yet cold from the factory,
is going to be sold at prices that will crowd our store from
morning until night until the last suit is gone. People
who think there is plenty of time are going to be sorely dis
appointedso we say again, beware, the monster cash-raising
sale begins to-morrow morning at 8 o'clock, and ends the
moment the goods are exhausted. Come come now.
