The success of this department is easily accounted for—our long standing alliance with the foremost coat and suit makers has yielded us extraordinary values and the shrewd buyers of Moscow have not been slow to take advantage of it. Many prices are quite close to the old values, which you must have thought were gone forever—but there's just lots of good, well tailored ,/// / $ « \ ■3 ? ■ I» I ( ! ) I Î i) >. & $15, $25 and up to $35 All Wool Coats at And some of the most remarkable suit values at .$25, $30 and $35 i i ± It's absolutely unnecessary to pay $40, $50 and $60 unless you wish to aid a lying profiteer. In every respect you'll find this superb stock an interesting show ing—in point of variety—in point of real quality—in point of values—which absolutely cannot be equaled elsewhere. s jj ft r ^T/ CREIGHTON'S -t M "The Moscow Home of Good Clothes for Men and Women yy sir LIBERTY BOND SHIRKERS ARE In Spokane, as well as elsewhere, many of the richer people are shirk ing their duty in the buying of Lib erty bonds and the working classes and people of small means are carry ing far more than their share of the burden. It is proposed to publish the names of these shirkers and as warning to them a committee com posed of loyal citizens, who have sub scribed their quotas and are giving their time to the work bought a page In Sunday's Spokesman-Review and tarried the following advertisement; Does This Mean You? Strong pressure has been brought to bear on your Liberty Loan Com mittee, demanding that the well-to-do people in Spokane make their Liberty Bond Subscriptions compare favorably with those of the working classes. Numerous names of prominent wealthy citizens have been turned in with the criticism that the subscrip tion is no larger than many a poor working man or woman has subscrib ed, and the demands are so insistent that in self-protection we must re quest that those who are capable of doing so raise their subscription. This community is not going to atand for the wealthy man or woman who will let the factory employe and laundry girl carry his or her load, Either come through and do your share as others are doing, or be held up to public scorn. . We propose to print the names of several who are not taking any in terest in this work, nor supporting the loan as they should. Among these are lumbermen, farmers and heavy land owners, contractors, job hers, manufacturers and capitalists. Me propose that the light shall be t " r .

In Latah county the same condi tion exists and The Star-Mirror has been asked by a committee of loyal Moscow citizens to publish the Spo kane advertisement and to ask the Liberty loan committee here to de mand that the wealthy people do their share and that the burden be not placed upon the shoulders of the wage earners and people of small means. The advertisement was brought to The Star-Mirror office by a man who is working for wages, but he and his two young sons have taken $450 worth of the fourth loan bonds. He said: number of men I know who are worth from $50,000 to $100,000 and it is not just. We are taking more than our assessment while the rich men who can afford it far better than we, taking from 10 to 20 per cent We are taking more than a are of what they ought to take. want The Star-Mirror t 0 give pub-1 licity to the facts and we want the i committee to make the shirkers and slackers come through. - ' We 9 A Beautiful Woman. Do you know that a beautiful wom always has a good digestion? If your digestion is faulty, eat lightly of meats, and take an occasional dose of Chamberlain's Tablets to strength your digestion. Price 25c. (O) an en a The Spokesman-Review praises the work of Congressman Burton L. French of Moscow in a strong editorial in which the work of the Idaho congressman is highly commended. The editorial fol lows : "The Spokesman-Review has always believed and repeatedly argued that this nation Gives it to its own financial wel fare to adopt the system of the national budget. This conviction has been strengthened by the unprecedented de mands of the war upon the wealth of the nation and by the enormous appro priations that congress has to make in consequence. "Nevertheless, there appears no likeli hood at present of a budget system being adopted. But if the whole loaf can not be had that is no reason why we. should not try to get half a loaf or even a slice. j n other words, if fiscal reform can not he effected wholesale, let us attempt as large a measure of such reform as ap pears practicable. "One of the corollaries of a budget system is giving the president power to ve t G appropriations in part. It would be an economic advantage to the govern nient and the taxpayers if he were em powered to prevent the enactment into ] avv G f S uch specific appropriations in ( j le g enera ] bill as appear to him to be extravagant or otherwise objectionable. At t ] le same time he could approve such items of the appropriation as seemed to bim to promise to be of benefit to the country. ."As matters now stand, the federal con stitution stands in the way of granting and exercising this power of partial veto of an appropriation bill. Amendment of the seventh section in the first article of the Constitution is requisite. "Representative French of Idaho has taken a commendable step torward ef fecting the required reform. As joint resolution 329 of the senate and the house of representatives he has proposed that 'the president shall have power to disapprove of any item or items or to reduce the amount of the same of any bill making appropriations. * * * The part or parts approved shall become a law and the item or items to the extent disapproved shall be void: unless the same be repassed by two-thirds of the SPOKANE PAPER SPOKESMAN - REVIEW GIVES MOSCOW'S CONGRESSION ED ITORIAL COMMENT .... r senate and of the house of représenta fives.' . "The lack of such partial or limited ^ veto has been abused and has led to mischievous extravagances. The adop tion of the proposed amendment and grant of qualified veto would help to ♦ bring in a budget system. It would handicap the vicious practice, of loading appropriation bills with indefensible riders. It would leave congress with , power, if two-thirds of the membership 1 judged best, to use its own judgment as j to accepting or rejecting the partial veto as to an appropriation. The ratification of the amendment would enable the execution to save many millions of the public funds and to do so without hurt to the efficiency of the government.'' HARVARD SCHOOL FAIR IS DECIDED SUCCESS HARVARD.-—The school fair given by the boys and girls clubs of Har vard Thursday, was a success. Ex hibits were for the most part the work of girls' canning club and boys' potato club, and were very good, plainly showing the skill and perse verence of our young people.

If troubled with indigestion or sleeplessness you should read what Miss Agnes Turner, Chicago, Ill., has Overwork, irregular meals and carelessness regarding the ordin ary rules of health, gradually under mined it until last fall I became a wreck of my former self. I suffered from continual headache, was unable to digest my food, which seemed to to say: lay as a dead weight on my stomach. I was very constipated and my com plexion became dark, yellow and muddy as I felt. Sleeplessness was added to my misery, and I would awake as tired as when I went to sleep. I heard of Chamberlain's Tab lets and found such relief after tak ing them that I kept up the treatment for nearly two months. They cleansed my stomach, invigorating my system, and since that time I can eat and sleep in comfort. I am today en tirely well." (O) Shot Farmer's Horse. A horse belonging to J. W. Logan was accidentally shot while grazing in the pasture Sunday morning. It is believed to have been done by a stray bullet fired by some one who was hunting, as a pack of hounds was chasing coyotes in the mountains near by.
