A man with a winter suit might bs
considered seasonably dressed,
but isn't today a little springy?
Don't you feel the least uncom
fortable sweltering under the
helt of clothing suitable for zero
weather? Then, too, the old suit
shows marked signs of dilapida
tion. We wish you could see clothing
as it ought to bs seen, that Is, see
what a saving Is to be got by pay
ing cash on the apot and buying
from dealers who have made
clothing a lifelong study, Instead
dragging along In the old rut of pay
ing so dearly for accommodation.
Think of the $16 Suit you're
wearing, that's not yet paid for.
Think of the obligation you're
under to pay as much for the next.
Think of the per cent difference
between our cash prices for equal
sui's $10, $11, $12.
NECKWEAR. Do you "get onto"
any difference between our dis
play of fresh, new made, neckwear
at a quarter, and the windowful of
another, that ought to have been
eold years ago? Every tie at 25c,
every tie at 35c, every satin- back
tie at 40c. are thia years' laUst
styles made from si Iks and satins
of our own selections.

or a "Universal Ho8iry Exposi

good and seasonale thing under

interesting feature of cur Hosiery

Londow, April 21. The reply of M. D
Glcrs, Russian Foreign Minister, to Mr.
Gladstone's request for an explanation of
General KomarofTs attack upon the Afghan
outposts near I'enjdoh on March .10, was re
ceived at the Foreign Office, on Saturday and
eonstdered by tho Cabinet on Monday. The
Bote Is curt and the reverse, of conciliatory.
M. De Glers says that General KomarofTi
dispatch giving his reasons for the attack
and describing the battle, the substance ol
which has heretofore been, telegraphed ta
Mr. Gladstone, sufficiently explains the
Penjdeh Incident, and that any supplement
thereto would be needless.
M. De Glcrs then enters a 'strong com
plaint against the excessive strength of Sii
yPeter Lumsden's escort, which, with the
moral effect of tho conference at Rawul
Pindl and the bellicose nature of Lord Duf
ferln's speeches, M. Dealers declares en
couraged the Afghans to provoke hostilities
Vlth tho Russians, as It led them to rely
upon British support la anV offensive action
they might take. So far from expressing
any regret at General KomarofTs course, M.
De Glers even Intimates, In, closing Ills reply,
that under the circumstances described in
General KomarofTs dispatch, the Afghans
having put themselves in the position of ag
gressors, it would have been a plain neglect
of duty had the General failed to make the
attack. , r
Dispatches which have! passed between
this city and St' Petersburg within the past
forty-eight hours havo retiilted in furthei
widening the differences between the Gov
ernments, arising ont of the Rosso-Afghan
frontier Imbroglio. An attache of the For
eign Ofllco stated to a press -representative
yesterday that the situation had grown very
serious over Sunday, and that a war seems
now almost unaoldnble. "Tho Russian
officials," said lie, "emboldened by their
success with regard to Penjdeh. have made
further demands, which I fear will forces
war, or result in tho utterhumillatlon of En
gland In tho eyes of tho world."
It Is stated on scml-ofllclal' authority that
tho Russian Government has greatly In
creased It demands with regard to the Af
ghan boundary line, and that Russia will
not yield one inch or in nny way seek to
avert war. These fresh demands are said
to have been accompanied by a note to the
effect tli.it England must either concede
them or fight Important dispatches were
received from Sir Edward Thornton, the
British Minister at St Petersburg, through
out Saturday night and Sunday, which it is
believed have given affairs a very serious
tum. The Cabinet Ministers remained In
London all day Sunday awaiting Russia's
reply to the latest English note.
In the House of Lords yesterday after
noon, Earl Granville, Secretary for Foreign
Affairs, being asked) if U-.C Government bad
received the reports of the English officials
on that of General Komaroff of the affair on
the Kushk Rler, stated that a dispatch had
just been received from Sir Peter Lumsden,
the British Commissioner, and while he
thought It lll-tlmed and injudicious to go
into the details of the dispatch, he would
state that it flatly contradicted tho report of
General Komarolf in nearly every essential
point Lord Granville further stated that
he expected more detailed dispatches from
Sir Peter, and if these came to hand he
promised to make a complete statement of
the affair to-day.
Sir Peter Lumsden Informs tho Govern
ment that ho has evidence that the Russians
are forcing the Sarlk Turkomans to aid in
the construction of a military road to Herat
which will pass through Penjdeh.
The SlaniJiird has a dispatch fromTlrpul,
dated April 10, stating that on the day pre
ceding the Russian attack near Penjdeh,
Captain Yates, one of Sir Peter Lums
den's statT officers with tho Afghans,
had a conversation with General Kom
aroff and found him Irascible and
Inclined to bo captious. The General
asserted that numerous causes of complaint
hail been afforded by the Afghans and
closed the Interview by denounc'ng the
Afghans as arrogant to an Insufferable de
gree. At this very time. Captain Yates
says tho Russians had advanced their own
line so that they were actually face to face
with the Afghans. The attitude of the lat
ter was not menacing. On the contrary
tho Afghan commander offered General
Komaroff tho privilege of Inspecting tho Af
ghan positions at Puliklilsk and gave, In a
friendly way, his reasons for having crossed
tho river, evidently not suspecting that Gen
eral Komarolf could find any cause for be

obtained iiermlsslon from its Home Govern
ment to enter Into some arrangement with
this country leading to a new treaty to take
tho place of the one which expires next
July, recently sent Sir Ambrose Shea, ono
of the leading business men of the Province,
to Washington to confer with Secretary Bay
ard about tho matter. Sir Ambrose, who
has been hero for tho past three weeks, left
Washington on Saturday for his home in St
Johns, but on the eve of his departure gave
a dinner at Wllllard's Hotel to a number of
gentlemen representing the press, to whom
he explained the object of his visit here and
tho position of Newfoundland on the fish
question, as well as the feeling there In the
matter of friendly trade relations between
bis peoplo and those of the United States.
Newfoundlanders, ho said, fail to under
stand how tho iieoplo of the United States
can desire to set aside, by the abrogation of
this treaty, a state of trade from which they
are the gainers.
Tho Province has a mere revenue tariff
which places tho productions of this country
on the same footing with British products.
Tho Province buys from us annually 83,000,-
000 worth of brcadstuffS and food and sells
to us alnmt 8275,000 worth of goods.
Newfoundlanders feel, although the bal
ance Is so much in favor of the United
States, that the trade Is one that accords
with their requirements, which has devel
oped uniler a state of free and friendly Inter
course, and they do not want It forced by
legislation out of the lines It has made for
Itself. Of the fishery Interest as likely to
be affected by the termination of the treaty,
Sir Ambiose said:
"The Washington treaty gives fishermen
from tho United States equal rights with our
own in our In-shore fisheries, and the suc
cess of their bank fishing Is manifestly and
largely Increased by thu facilities afforded
them in having our harbors as a base ot op
erations, wliere their supplies ot bait undtco
are obtained. They are then within twenty
four hours of the fishing grounds, and their
visits to our harbors have become a cardinal
point in tho economy of their season ar
rangements, tho valuo of which is attested
by tho steady regularity with which they
continue in Increasing numbers to use our
ports. This plan of oiierations cannot bo
set aside without Inflicting great Injury upon
the Interest to be atTecteJ."
Sir Ambroso while here succeeded In Im
pressing upon the Secretary of State his own
views in this matter and left for home
with the understanding that before July
1 a temporary arrangement will be enteied
into to allow reciprocity alfairs between the
United States and Newfoundland to remain
as at present until the matter can bo referred
to Congiess for Its action next winter. It Js
very likely that a new treaty will bo nego
tiated and sent to the Senate at Its next ses
sion. Secretary Ba j ard has written to Mr. W.
K. Vanbokkalen, of 155 Broadway, New
York, concerning tho Illegal imprisonment
of his son, Charles A. Vanbokkalen, Consul
of Hayti at New York, In tho city of Port-Au-Princc,
Haytl, by the civil courts.
A concluKlou ha been reached that tho
case has presented grounds fordlplomatlo
representation nguinst I ho judicial judgment
as Invudlug Mr. C A. Vanbokknlen's treaty
rights and as resting on a mistaken view of
tho law and practice In the United States In
like cases. Full Instruction has been sent to

reached by this (lov ornment and asking that
your son tie released on making the assign
ment which, under treaty stipulations and
reciprocity, the Uullisl Mates (iiivernment
claims ho had un undoubted right to muke.
