Tfiis investiture was a lawless pro ceeding. Every reasonable man will grant that. The conduct of the people ot Homestead in taking possession of |tho town and the approaches thereto and refusing to disperse at tho command iof the lawfully constituted authorities [—represented by the deputy sheriff and [the small posse whom ho took thither [With him Tuesday week, was iu legal act of insurrection. at for is contemplation, Morally there is much to bo saul i tenuation of the attitude taken by these touch aggrieved people—not strikers but locked out men—taken and held firmly but in commendable order up to Wednesday morning; but legally they in the wrong. Wc do not think can bo any question about this, ut Wednesday there was very serious ouble.

An attempt was made to invade tho town— to put down the mob law that prevailed there, let U3 say—and that attempt made by whom ? By the regularly pjgtuted authorities ? No. It wus made w a band of hired thugs, unknown to tho law, possessing no constabulary Fights, recruitod here aud there and [everywhere, supplied to tho Carnegies by an agency located in Chicago, a city [hundreds of miles distant and iu another is stato.

They cted to do this at their isk. • ey were armed with Winchester |es. They went to Homestead. They . Jempted to land there. Their landing , is resisted. Then, tho weight of the Jbtimony seems to bo, theso hired and imported assassins opened fire up the people of the town. Tho lire was returned, and, after several hours Irregular lighting, in the course of [which several were killed aud many fithcrs wounded on both sides, the Pinkertons were glad to be allowed to surrender. They were disarmed, marched to a hall through streets lined with friends and relatives of men win wounded, more less maltreated on tho way, and finally locked up, considering themselves for tunate to escape with their lives. they had killed I We do not pretend to say what grade f crime, if any, the people of Home Head have committed in resisting this «îvuflion by force.

That ord "wtttch /.an" implies the only subterfuge under i'hich this invasion of Homestead can ,0 sought to be defended. Iput here is the point.

It is surprising what a mere mite of money is needed to buy stuff for a Cotton Dress. Between the 25c. Yankee Ginghams at i2^c. and the 75c. Silk-and-cotton Ginghams at 50c. is a most winsome group of kindred stuffs—all prices marked on the basis, including the 40c. An derson Ginghams at 18c., and 50c. Lace Ginghams at 25c. Other Cottons to same come up as smilingly. 40 ami 50c. Crapes are 18c.; 50 and 60c. Crapes and Polka Dot Zephyrs are 37 l A c -< 37 'Ac- French Organ dies are 25c. Cream All-wool Grenadine, fancy silk bordered, has been made doubly beautiful by price touch —$1 from $1.75. Width 44 inches—only 6 yards for an ordinary dress pattern. The silk border makes an at tractive trimming and finish to the Costume. on lett by will Summer-weight Black TOnnamnber s. Dress Goods—everythingthat a complete stock ought to have. The Black All-wool Challis at 50c. is the best we ever had at the price, and the 75c. Black Henrietta at 50c. is a marvel of quality and finish. Black Grenadines are quite as interesting—this plaid at 60c. is the usual $1.25 kind. Como Batiste in shcerness is only a shade short of the delicate French Organdie. The unique designs and the odd colorings give it a charm ing individuality as a costume stuff. 10 yards ample for a dress. 25c. a yard. Pin stripes and polka dots are in high favor.

Opener to the air, looser when the fit is tight, more comfortable for hot weather than almost any other stuff. And the cost is trilling —Crapes that were 45, and 60c. are all at /Sc. now. 5 ° Navy blue Serge is one ol the best of stuffs for a moun tain or seaside Dress. Two of the quickest sellers are 50 inches wide and $1 or $1.25. A shower of remnants and short pieces follow such hurri cane selling as Summer Dress Goods have been going through. Sometimes full dress lengths go into the wrecked price lots. We don't wait to sort closely ; you have the benefit of every douht. The yard or yards that will top an old skirt, or bottom an old waist, or make a handsome dress for the school girl, may be yours for a fraction of the usual cost. On the trip a Cravenette Ulster or Newmarket will always come handy. Shower proof. Navy blue or black. $10, $12, $14. $2.00, $2.50, S3.00 or $3.50 will give you a wide choice for the Outing Coat.
