Additional City News on the Sixth Page. DARE HK ANS WE R? Whenever you see a political sensa tion sprang a day or two before elec tion, so that it has time to become thor oughly circulated, you can almost safely put it down as a roorbach. But when campaign managers have real facts to place before voters,they give them nub licit\ at a lime that will admit of any correction being equally well circulated. The latter is the case with the charges against the oflicial and commercial con duct of Capt. Babb, the Republican candidate for mayor. He cannot afford to ignore this matter as a roorbach. Tliere aie nearly o two weeks be fore election day, and it is not sprung upon him at a disad vantage, lhe Globe desires to be entirely fair about it. If Capt. Batib will explicitly answer these questions, the Globe will gladly give him the ben elit of its columns, His public record is a public matter and the public has a full and free right to question the entire fitness of a man who seeks to occupy the highest and most honorable oflice in its gift. The question is plainly asked him, if, while be was an alder man, be was not interested in a con tract with the city, in defiance of law, and if be did not -bare the boodle that grew out of the contract. The public lias a right to an explicit answer to this question, at least, ami the Globe pro poses to have it, or to assume that silence- gives consent. mm BLAME WHERE IT BELONGS. The fact that gambling houses not only live but flourish in Minneapolis, is too well known to every oflicial who should know, to require a two-column illustrated article to set it forth. Of course there is gambling: It permeates the city, and runs from the high-toned faro, where the tiger luxuriates in a costly jungle, to the lowest of the skin poker games. The police officer who does not know it. and the police comis sioner-who does not believe it. are too ignorant or too unsophisticated for this world. No argument is necessary to prove it. The police commission makes no effort to stay it or to bring the offend ers to justice. Therefore, the reform police "commission is a delusion and should go. Why was the high-priced police commission forced upon Minne apolis, and by whom? By the Republi cans. Did any Democrat have a hand or voice in it. Not one. "Was it intended as a reform meas ure? Not in the least; it was a political move, pure and simple, de signed to take away powet from the mayor. These are the facts, and inas much as it was a political motive that induced the publication of the gambling article, let voters consider it closely. That gambling runs rife in the city is the fault of the police commission, and the police commission is a Bepublican institution, fastened tinon the people against their will. It is generally be lieved, as far as the Journal is con cerned, that the article had for its first Object, a "shake-down" of the gamblers. as the phrase goes, and, failing in this, a political turn was given it. Every good citizen believes in rooting out the gam blers, but is difficult to convince an in telligent public that the Journal was actuated by any good motive. Men d not gather lies from thistles. The Journal was a warm advocate of the passage of the police commission act, and it cannot now refuse to acknowl edge its offspring. POLITICAL COMMENT. The Northwestern Labor Union per petrated a surprise party on the com munity yesterday, by coming out in an extra edition for Merriam and Snider. There was something so grotesque in a labor paper declaring for Merriam that - the cry of boodle went up in every quarter. The Union may be entirely honest in the support of Merriam, and the talk of its having been bought may do it an injustice, but it is certain that it was the general expression that boodle bad done the work. The Union's sup port of Merriam will do little good in labor circles, under the circumstances. As J. P. McGaughey said, recently: "'lhey may say what they please, but they cannot down the fact that Mor dant's house was finished by convict labor." * * Somebody is trying to make a great fuss over nothing in relation to copying names for registration out of the last election poll books. The facts are very few and simple, and the fuss was en tirely uncalled for. There were only some forty precincts last time ami 115 precincts now, so that it is obvious that each of the 115 precincts could not use a book at once. City Clerk Cornmau gave the judges access to the books in turn a- rapidly as possible, and those who were crowded out are doing the howling. Hereafter, when each pre cinct can get its own book, there will be no difficulty, but the trouble at pres ent is unavoidable. • * The Star and Journal have been hav ing an animated discussion of the eight hour plan, in its relation to the candi dates for mayor. The Star has about laid the Journal out, and one more round will completely kill it. On the motion to adopt the report recommending eight hours' work for a day's labor, in city jobs, Aid. E.C. Babb voted NO. »* . • * It might be a wise measure to arrest two or three of those stubborn, bull headed judges, just for the effect of the example. They seem to know too much, and an arrest might have a salutory result. AMUSEMENT NOTES. That famous organization, the Con reiu Opera company, will appear at the Grand only three nights and matinee, commencing next Monday. This splen did organization, which is without doubt the best comic opera party on the road, has hitherto only presented one opera to local theater-goers.

Sale of seats will open Friday. A Social Event. Last evening was a memorable one at the palatial residence of Mr. and" Sirs. W. 1). Washburn at Fair Oaks. lt. was the occasion of the debut of Miss May C. Washburn, and to say that the young lady made her entrance into the social world under the most auspicious cir cumstances would not be doing the oc casion justice. The handsome residence was beautifully decorated with plants and flowers of all kinds and presented a most pleasing appearance. The at tendance was large, there being some 700 guests present, many of theiii being from otbercities. Danz's full orchestra was in attendance and dancing was a feature of the occasion. The ball and the reception were a success in every particular and will long be remembered by all who attended. Something New. The palace train service to be Inau gurated to Great Falls, Helena and ! Butte, Mont., by the St. l'aul, Minne apolis & Manitoba railway November 10. Complete in every detail. Do not fail to tee it. WILL BABB ANSWER? Was He, While an Alderman, _. Interested in a City J. | Contract? Y^?- If So, What Were the Terms and Was the Bargain Fulfilled? More Pointed Questions for Candidate Babb to Re . ply to. Public Acts Which He Can Not Afford to Ignore at This Time. In yesterday's Globe a number of questions were propounded to Candi date Babb, relative to an alleged ice and labor trust, and the tender made of the use of these columns for a reply over his signature. If the condition of things were not as represented there was no reason why he should not have Accepted the offer made and availed himself of the opportunity to set him self right before the public. Surely no man who had not entered into a trust to raise the price of ice and control the employment of discharged laborers would willingly remain in the plight in which the un answered questions leave him. and if lie did not enter into a conspiracy to lower the price of labor and raise the price of ice these columns will be open tor an explicit denial by him. Let him answer each of the several questions propounded ami he shall have no oc casion to complain of unfair treatment. In order that he may not have a chance to claim that he overlooked the ques tions tney are republished as follows: THE QUESTIONS REPEATED. 1. Did you, on lhe 2d day of April, 1888, in defiance of the law relative to the restraint of trade, and in order to force the price of ice up to a figure far aDove that at which it would otherwise have been sold, enter into a conspiracy with one or more other large dealers in ice. the terms being re duced to writing, in which you fixed the prices to be demanded and charged foe tho season of IS^S? '2. Did you on said day enter into a written agreement with one or more Ice dealers not to sell or deliver ice to any person already indebted to either for ice, and make the terms so strong as to deprive even a sick man. who was unable to pay his fotmer bill, of the ice which bis physician declared to be absolutely necessary? 3. Did you on said day enter into a written agreement with one or more ice dealers not to hire or attempt to hire any man or men employed by either party without the consent of the "other? ?:?? ■ •■■■ " - 4. Was said agreement so worded as not to permit the employment of a man discharged with or without cause, and so strong as to en able you to dictate the wages to be paid under penally of no work elsewhere? 5. Did you on said day enter into a written agreement by which either party might at will demand the "discharge of any employe ot the other for any alleged violation of so-called rules, no matter how trivial, and by which aH parlies were to do their best to keep him un (.■mj loved? -'''. 0. Have you entered into a written eon tract with one or more other ice dealers to meet on or about Dec 1, 1888, to form a new ice trust for the coming season? And do you agree with James G. Blame in the opinion that "trusts are largely private affairs, con cerning which the public have no right to in quire?"' 7. Did you on or about April 15, 1888, ascertain that one Charles Giebenbaio, for merly, but not then, one of your employes, and who had been working outside of the trust, was then canvassing for trade for another ice dealer? And did you then and there declare that you would deprive him of work, be the consequences to your pocket what they might? 8. iiio you thereupon call at the office or said ice dealer for the purpose Ot notifying him that he must discharge said Charles ben halo in accordance with said contract, you claiming that ii covered all former em ployes no matter when or why they quit your service? 9. Did you, In the absence of said ice dealer, leave a peremptory order to that ef icct. and did you aftarm rls cause the same to be reduced to writing} '.-• . . : 10. Did you April isss, make or cause to be made another written demand of the same purport, coupled - with the statement tbat unless it was conceded' to you would withdraw from said ice trust and furnish ice to whomsoever you pleased at as low figures as you saw fit? ■•■■-, I*l. Have you not repeatedly charged said ice dealer witb bad faith in not discharging said Charles Giebenbain, ami insisted that it was your mutual duty to keep down the price "of labor and keep up the price of ice? 12. In evasion of the spirit of your written agreement, have you made, or caused to be made, Contracts by whicii you were to re ceive the rales fixed in your schedule and make a rebate in the shape of a present in cash to your customers at the close of the season? 13. When you were a member of the city council were you directly or indirectly inter ested in any contract for furnishing ice to the (iv. in"utter defiance of the plain terms of the city charter? If so, what were the terms of said contract and in what manner were the interests of the city protected? To the end that Candidate Babb may not be able to claim a want of knowl edge as to the offer made above, copies of to-day's issue of the Grout: will be left at his residence and mailed to his address. Of course he will cheerfully answer the questions when he learns that answers are desired, and while he is about it let him also answer the fol lowing: SOME NEW QUESTIONS. 14. Was the ice dealer mentioned in pre vious questions the gentleman who is so well known as Herman A. Westphal, the pioneer ice-dealer of Minneapolis? 15. Are the documents by which the ex istence of tic ice and labor trust and your connection therewith can be shown - now in the i>os essiou of said Herman A. Westphal? 10 Is the trust mentioned above the only trust in which you have entered with said Westphal to increase the price of ice? 17. Have you boon and are you now re ceiving a royalty from said Westplml as a consideration for not bidding against him when the contract is large enough to di vide? lb. nave you repeatedly threatened said Westphal to underbid him unless he would divide profits on certain contracts? 19. Have you received a percentage of the amount paid" Westphal by John T. West for Ice last season, aud are you to receive a large percentage from the same source this year? 20. Are tliere other deals of the same nat ure by which you force large consumers to pay a bonus for ice not furnished by you? '21. While you were nn alderman and pro hibited from making a direct contract to fur nish ice to the city, did you propose to West phal to bid at a high figure and divide the profits? -22. Was said proposition accepted, and did Westphal make a bid which you as alder man was instrumental in Inning accepted? 123. Was said bid at about double the rul ing rates for ice m similar quantities, and for more than double after deducting cost of ice? '21. Was the ice delivered at the city hall, the various engine houses, etc., delivered wholly by Westphal. or jointly by Westphal and the company which you controlled? " '25. Were the bills presented at the exor bitant rales as contracted for, and by you cer tified to be correct as chairman of "the coun cii committee on claims? '20. At the close of the season did you re ceive your -hare of the proceeds? If so, was it in the form of a check? 27. What was the amonnt of said check? Who collected the same? and who now holds the check so indorsed and paid? 2S. Do you think that a man who. while a city official, would be a party to a trust of the character indicated, is a proper person to occupy lhe position of mayor? If not wearied by answering the fore going—not in the lump, but seriatim and in detail— it might not be amiss to reply also to the following: -^Tj ; : THE EKiiiT-itoer. r.rconn. 29. As an alderman, were you one of the I committee to whom were referred sundry motions and resolutions looking to making eight bouts a day's work, when in the employ cl the city? .. .. ;t 30. Did you report against the same, and were you indorsed therein by other alder men now candidates for re-election? 31. Did yoa. as alderman of the Eighth wan!, do all and singular the tilings lor which tbe resent aldermen have lately been so severely arraigned: and did you introduce the system so generally complained of iv the matter i f boh ailed ward improvements? There, that will do for to-day. llv all means let K. C. Babb answer. What ever he may think of such things, the people have an Idea that certain kinds of trusts are not necessarily "private affairs concerning which they have no right to Inquire." Unless he comes to the front and squarely meets the issue he will find himself, the morning after election, the worst beaten candidate the city has known. On the other band, if THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 24, 1888.— TEN PAGES. he can disprove the alleged condition of things the questions will benefit him in the campaign. _ Again we say, by all means let us hear from Candidate Babb. WILSON'S AVAR RECORD. What the Army Register Says A Comparison. The Tribune of yesterday contains the following article, which was evidently written by its "rebel yell editor*." . Eugene Wilson, being a Virginian born, and a state's rights Democrat, objected to serving in the Northern army against the South. His political views were of that character which would place him in a false position had lie consented to enlist in an or ganization which could have beeu ordered to the South to fight against the rebellion. Mr. Wilson was a gentleman of courage, as he proved by entering the service of the govern ment in the first regiment of Minnesota mounted rangers— one-year organization which was recruited on the public proc lamation by the governor that it would be retained within the limits of Minnesota and Dakota for service against the Indians. This was in 1803, after the war had been in progress for two years and more, and during those two years tliere had been abundant op portunity "for Mr. Wilson" to recruit a com pany and hunt for glory on the battlefields of the Smith if he had been seeking for that type of glory. But lie was not. and will not now say that he ever had any wish to fight against the armed rebellion of the Southern states. It will not avail to cail the people liars who simply call attention to the known record of a candidate for a high office, and neither will it serve a good purpose to falsify and distort the historical facts for the pur pose of shielding a man from his past record. It seems rather strange, after the ad missions made in the above article by its writer, that it will not "serve a good purpose to falsify and distort historical facts," that he should in the same arti cle he guilty of the very thing which he condemns. He will, however, probably give as an excuse for making false statements that he is not serving a good purpose.but striving to defeat an honest man, who is the Democratic candidate for governor. According to the report of the adjutant general made in 18«7, ana which gives the names and war record of all soldiers hailing from Min nesota who served in the army during the war of the rebellion, the war record of Hon. Eugene Wilson will com pare favorably with that of the ••rebel-yell editor" of the Tribune. This report states that Company A of the "First regiment of mounted rangers, Minnesota volunteers," commanded by Capt. Eugene H. Wilson, was mustered into the United States service for three years on the Uth day of October, 1802, by Cant. A. 1). Nelson, mustering of licer, and that Capt. Wilson was mus tered out of service with his company Oct. 20. 1863. This regiment is desig nated in the "United States Army Keg ister" as the "First regiment of cav alry, Minnesota volunteers,'" ana a list ef their engagements with Indians is also given, all of which took place in the territory of Dakota. The same re port states that Frank J. Mead was mustered into the United States service for three years, as corporal in Company 11, First regiment infantry, Minne sota volunteers, on the 29th of April, 1861, by Capt. A. D. Nelson, mustering officer; that he was reduced to the ranks May IT, 1803, and discharged as a private on the "Stb of February, 1868, his company being mustered out of ser vice May 3, ISO. Democratic Doings. Democrats of the Seventh ward held a rousing ratification meeting in front of Dr. Gibson's residence last evening. Tliere was a large turmoil, and the ut most enthusiasm prevailed. Speeches indorsing the aldermanic nominee- of the ward were made from a platform, and big bonfires aid in making the event a leasing one. This evening the Third ward Democrats will meet at Men age's hall, ou Sixth avenue north. P. B. Winston, L. M. Band, D. 13. Johnson and John T. Byrnes will speak. At the same time there will be a meet ing of the Fourth ward Democrats, at 1207 Western avenue, where A. T. Ankeny and the speakers who also ad dress the other meeting will be present. To-morrow evening there will be a monster meeting at the East Side rink, where Mayor Ames. Lars M. Rand and D. B. Johnson will speak. The Bohe mian club will hold a meeting to-mor row evening at Martin's hall, and the Democrats of the Seventh ward will hold a big meeting at 2433 Bloomington avenue. THE BAIIXI'M CASE. The State Adduces Testimony Relative to the Tools. There was a large crowd in the mu nicipal court room yesterday afternoon when the case against Dr. E. E. Bar num, charged with stealing a chest of carpenter's tools from Mrs. Belle Tame, whom he was attending during child birth. Among the audience was a large number of ladies. Mrs. i'aine, a rather good-looking woman, who is still an in mate of the Northwestern hospital, was the first witness. When the tools were brought into the room she began to sob. She told about Dr. Barnum having at tended her during her illness, but TO* nied most emphatically that she had ever promised him the tools. While she was riving the testimony she fainted twice from weakness. Mrs. Bidwell, Mrs. Paine's mother, was next put on the stand. She said that Dr. Barnum had come to the house immediately after Mrs. Paine had been taken to the hospital and had taken the tools away. Mrs. J. 11. Thompson tes tified that she heard Mrs. Paine tell Dr. Barnum that he could not have the tools, as she could not afford to part with them. lbv. C. N. Stowcrs was put on the stand to testify to the good character of Dr. Barnum. and the case was then adjourned until 2 o'clock this afternoon. During the examination Attorney Leftwich. who appeared ;for the defendant, made a great deal over the fact that articles in reference to the case had appeared in the city papers. Mrs. Paine is in destitute circumstances, and an effort will be made to raise a fund for her. NO NEGLIGENCE. The Defendant Wins in a Notable Damage Suit. " The case of Joseph Gallagher, admin istrator ol the estate of Nicholas Galla gher, deceased, against Bant Arntson for 85,000 damages was partially tried before judge Lochren, who dismissed the case on the ground that no negli gence was shown. From the testimony, it appears that Arntson owns and oper ates a stone quarry near the corner of Second street northeast and Main street, and uses in connection with his work a derrick. On the 6th of last May a large stone was lifted from the quarry to the bank, and after the men had quit work, several children, among whom was Nicholas Gallagher, aged seven years, came to the quarry and while playing around the derrick the stone which was still attached to the derrick rope slipped from the bank, thereby causing the sweep of the windlass to revolve with great rapidity. Young Gallagher, who happened to?be stand iifC near the windlas at the time, was struck on the head by this sweep and instantly killed. Exposition Finances. At the meeting of the directors of the Exposition at 109 Nicollet avenue, yes terday morning, Manager Byron sub mitted an advance financial report, which showed that as a result of the last exposition §4,000 had been paid on the old debt, leaving §5,270 yet unpaid. The full report will be submitted at the annual meeting in December, lt was decided not to purchase any of the pict ures in the art gallery this year, but 11. Jay Smith reported that he was going to take the finest of them and establish an art gallery in one of the stores of the West hotel. Cappa, who is now at the Richmond exposition, sent in a letter, saying that during his travels he had never found a better managed exposi tion than the one at Minneapolis. New Parlor Sets.

Some Idea of the Fight Being Made by Local Repub licans. - Leading Candidates Prefer to Trust to Boodle, Not' „ Committees. .... . L tr:.li — — .it The Hot Snider Campaign--* Death of the Old Sol- '-* dier Racket. V? Committees Tremble Before the Wilson and Winston £ Tidal Wave. ■ l\ ..Ys''., . " " tt 1. The "Republican campaign in Henne pin county, take it all the way through, from national candidates down to alder men, is a very singular and mixed-up sort of alfair. Practically the work devolves upon two committees, the county, headed by A. J. Boardman, and tho city, headed Gov. McGill's weigh master, George W. Marchant. With out stopping to comment upon the fact that the state pays Marchant for other work, it may be said that very little reliance is placed on either committee for other than routine work by the can didates who expect to win. The presi dential fight is in charge of the league, manipulated by that shrewd and battle scarred veteran of fifty successful cam paigns, Timothy E. Byrnes. This organization devotes itself to flooding the state with literature, divided into three classes; first, passionate ap peals to Irishmen to vote against England by voting for Harrison, who lias repeatedly insulted the Irish, and Morton, the British banket second, appeals to the temperance people to vote the Republican ticket on high moral grounds; third, appeals to the German vote to stand by the Repub lican party because it believes in per sonal liberty and free whisky. This is about the substance of the work done, by the league, with "its 550,000 mem bers," as a local paper claimed. Banker Merriam, for governor, trusts not in committees. Committees may get out tickets and make a canvass to perfec tion, but the astute St. Paulite has other weapons at his command. Cer tain tried and trusty men are appointed boodle-bearers, and arc spending their time putting money where it will do the .most good. It is believed this money came from Merriam, and that he has more to put in during the last lew days. It is evident his managers believe in a "personal*' campaign rather than in placing their trust in an ordinary com mittee. THE MOST DESPERATE FIOHT being made is that under way in behalf of Capt. Snider, the millionaire mine owner. T. B. Hart and A. 11. Hall have temporarily abandoned their law prac tice to hustle for tlie captain, and it is reported there is tlie snug sum of SIOO, --000 to be expended, if that amount is necessary to Snider's election. The captain's campaign at home is based on the plea that Minneapolis should sup-; port a Minneapolis man. and this idea is brought out in a South Minneapolis pa per which booms the captain as a Min neapolis man at so much per boom. This runs counter to the Merriam idea, which is to keep down the city feeling, but it is a case of save himself who can, and the Snider forces are making a des perate fight. Several local papers have made sudden flops and flung the Snider portrait to the front, but that may have no connection with new presses, etc. There has been a great ruction in the county committee over an assertion that A.H. Hall has been booming Snider at the expense of the county ticket. Hall was placed on the committee upon Sniders demand for representation. He was' afterwards made secretary, and now comes the complaint. It is said there was a merry war of words at the last" meeting, aud that finally a member said that as long there was no money and no enthusiasm be would move the com mittee adjourn sine die. Members of the county committee say they are making a hard and winning fight for the county ticket, but there is an air of evident insincerity about the statement that discounts it at least one half. Several of the candidates them selves say the committee is leaving them to hustle for themselves, and that things will be so stirred up in the city that their entire ticket will be buried in the swim. Recent developments made from the county attorney's oilice in regard to the small percentage of trials, coupled with the statement that the gam bling interest will be thrown solid from the Republican ticket,, have a tendency- to shake the hope that the ticket may pull through. The indorsement of J. 11. Ege by the Farm and Labor party, 611 the ground that he was a Prohibitionist, has raised a great laugh, and when a man is laughed at he is in danger. All through, the Repub licans are very weak in hope and are in mighty dread of having everything swamped by the tidal wave that is roll ing on tor Wilson and Winston. IX TnE CITY CANVASS the Republicans are at their wits' ends. Some of the committee claim to be able to control the next council, but in their private councils they admit that the outlook is very slim. The prospect for Capt. Rabb and the city ticket is so de cidedly blue that the committee is badly handicapped, and they now fear that the immense majority which seems certain for Winston will carry the alder manic ticket through in wards which would otherwise be Republican. Tliere was serious talk yesterday, in unofficial quarters, of taking Rabb off the ticket, but it was agreed that this would be an admission of weakness that could not but be disastrous. No new man could be put on at this time and hope to win. There is one phase of the city cam paign, and indeed, the entire campaign, that has been sadly misused. The Re publicans started out on the old-soldier racket and worked it so hard that in many cases they not only disgusted the general public, but the old soldiers themselves. The old soldier, now that he lias been removed from politics, will continue to receive, the respect and gratitude he deserves, and the bloody ; shut will be folded away forever. Miftv neapolis is entirely done with it. " 1% -«> _ »* MINNEAPOLIS GLOBULES. y _ Bank clearings yesterday, -1, -140.57. Two cases of scarlet fever were reported yesterday.

BLANKETS— Search anywhere, everywhere, you can't find a more satisfactory stock of Blankets from which to make your selection than the one we have gathered together. As in everything else, we took ad vantage of our Syndicate connection for better prices and got them. We got something else; we got a knowledge not only of what we have, out of what we haven't, which is quite as necessary. How else could we know that the what-we have is better than the what-we haven't ? It was the search and the sifting which made this collection what it is. If everybody's pocketbook were fat, we wouldn't speak of anything less than §1.50; but, alas ! they are not, so we have them for less than §1.00. No wool in them, hut they are better than none; absolutely the best to be had for the price. Next comes a Blanket with a lit tle wool and a good deal of cotton; and so on, the wool gaining on the cotton and the price keeping pace .with the wool, modified now and fthen by fineness and size. • » There is nothing in which prices mean so little on paper as Blankets. A S I .OO Blanket may be cheaper than a §2.00 one. Size, wool, weight, texture and color— if if s a colored Blanket determine value. These are our tests; they should be yours. ? .j-' If you go by prices, here is what you want : Whiteßlankets,lo -1 part w001,52.25 to $3.50 White " 11-4 " " 3.75 to 4.50 Gray " 10-4 " " 1.50 to 3.75 .Scarlet * " 10-4 all wool, . 2.65 to 4.50 Scarlet " 11-4 '* '* 5.50 to 7.00 •White " 10 4 " " 3.00 to 5.00 White " 11-4 '* ** 5.50 to 17.50 fWhita " - 12-4 " - " 7.75 to 20,00 If you go by value, the place to determine that is with your eyes and hands upon the Blankets. As in Blankets, so in Comfort ables; almost no" end to qualities and styles, from cotton-filled to swansdown-filled, from cheap prints to finest satines. We have kept your needs - and the varied sizes of your pocketbooks in view, and guarantee you the best value for your money. ;...?- ;l'7/-_ „/, 7. .
