How's This For
Some dealers are always trying to see how little they can give for
money. WE are always trying to see HOW MUOH we can give;
not because we're any better than they, but because it pays us.
PAYS US, mind you. It pays us because it brings new customers
and pleases our old ones. So you see our reason is a selfish ono.

The Tynan Arrest, a Police, Not
a Political, Conspiracy.
Research Can Not Connect tho Prls
v oner With New Feniailism,
Nor In tho Remotest Way With Any Nl
hjllstla or Anarchistic Group In Eu
rope Throe of the FhoenlxtI"ark
Men Still In Penal Servitude!
London, Sept. 20. The miasma of
press and pollco mendacity which
arose on tho arrest of tho Tynan gang
having partially cleared off, ft seems
now possible to get borne reasonable
vlow of what tho facts may be. Dur
ing three weeks that have elapsed since
Tynan's arrest the burden of proof has
increasingly tended toward the convic
tion that the whole affair is a
police, rather than a political
conspiracy. It is not only that
the arrests at Rotterdam, Glasgow
and Boulogne were opportuno to the
czar's arrival in Scotland and his visit
to FrUuee. Tho connection of Tynan,
Kearney and Bell, or Ivory, with the
plot hns "been tracked, their alleged
association with American and Euro
pean nihilists investigated, their
sources of supplies inquired into, and
their connection with tho resurgence
of militant Fcnianism in Ireland ven
tilated. The result of these inquiries is that
neither tho authorities nor independ
ent research can connect the prisoners
with the now Fenian societies in Ire
land nor in the remotest way ujitb any
nihilist or anarchist group in 'Europe.
The abundance of money which tho
members of the gang could dispose of
has pointed to two sources tho
British secret service fund and tho
two trust Irish American associations.
Tho English civil service es'tlmatcs
for tho current fiscal year put at 30,000
pounds for "secret service," aro known
to have been increased already by
drafts on the treasury for about 10,000
pounds more. Proof which has been
obtained that both Tynan and Haines
were in London at the end of 1885,
lends force to the suspicion that the
first lines of conspiracy were then
laid. Kearney has not the same odium
of police agent attached to him. lie
gets the credit of being a dupe and a
dynamite criminal not an agent pro
vereateur. As to tho participation of the Rus
sian nihilists in the plot it is beyond
credit. No common point fraternity
exists between tho small group of nihi
lists hero and the Irish dynamiters.
Long before Stepniak died, tho Russian
exile party had repudiated the assassin
policy. Nor had they money to work
out any militant scheme they might
conceive There is no dynamite fund
to be obtained from the nihilists.
About tho extradition of Tynan if
the English government continues to
press for his being hunded over there
will be a trial and conviction under
the explosives act at .the old Bai
ley and a subsequent quiet re
lease. The last dynamite gang who
came from New York in 1887 raised
a monetary public sensation and got
sentenced to penal servitude, where,
upon conviction, quickly sot free and
deported to the United States. Their
release, they not being Irish political
prisoners, was effected without draw
ing tho attention of tho country or
parliament.' There arc still in
penal servitude three of tho
Phoenix Park men Fitzharris, alias
"Skin tho Goat," Laurence Iianlon and
Joo Mullette one of whom could tell
something of Tynan's part in that af
fair, if Tynan was put upon his trial
for it. But Tynan will not bo tried,
nor has tho speech mado for tho prose
cution of Ivory in the Bow street po
lice court sin Thursday converted any
of tho many doubters to tho belief that

that the fight in this state shall bo
made upon the national issues, and
more particularly upon the democratic
proposition of free coinage nt the ratio
of 10 to 1.
Mr. Thacher thinks that his declina
tion will result In Wllbor H. Porter, of
Watcrtown, his companion of tho
present democratic ticket, as candidate
for lieutenant governor, being named
by the state committee at its meeting
on Monday night as the candidate -for
governor. There was intense excite
ment about tho city when Mr. Thach
er's declination became known shortly
before noon. Tho utmost surprise was
manifested by the members of the no
tification committee when they learned
of Mr. Thacher's decision.
