VOL. XI. NO. 52 - r July 17. Last week we gave our cus tomers over oOO instead of about 200 Waists advertised at 25 cents. That racket is about over. Only a tew small sizes left. Now we are ready to make closing-out pri ces on our finest wash and silk waists, 50c, 75c, $1.00 each for waists heretofore $1.00, $125, $1.50 and $1.75. - $3.00 a piece for silk waists worth from $3.98 to $5.00 $5.00 each for $7.75 grade. Tomorrow morning all the big lot of 10 cent fancy Zephyr Ging hams sold for last few days at 6 1-4 cents will be put out at 5 cents a yard. At H 1-lc a big lot of wash dress goods, all worth much more will be piled out. 10 cents a yard now for balance of 25c swivel silks and tine dimi ties. Only a few of the suits adver tised last week at $5.00 each are nnsold.

Every Reason Why There Should be Another Democratic Ticket anil Why Democrat! Should Not ttnppoit Mc Kliilry. Interview from Geneva.) "You will observe that those who are so (i nick to urge concentration of a sound mouer men upon McKinley are cither Republicans, who naturally seek to swell their party ranks oy sucn an unexpected accession, or miosc uemo- crats who, from a sense of sheer outrage and disgust, lean at conclusions, not CHi-iiier to take two bites at a cherry. 'But there are considerations which neither class takes into aecouut. There are from 2.(100.(100 to 4.000,000 of stand Democrats who may not be so easily transferred from one party to the other, vet whose votes can be made iust as effectual in suppressing anarchy as the votes of those jtepuoucans who uirccuy support McKinley. these ijemoerais must have some 'abiding place. They cannot: rtnil it under a flair of which one. half is for sound money and the other half for protection. "Mr. MeKinluv cannot compromise an issue which he has made the corner stone of his political belief. It is true that the money issue, not the tariff issue, is iu the ascendant now, but there must be logical consistency In all things, and neither Mr. McKinley nor his party can ignore tarilt pledges witnouc sen- stultihcation. "Hence a new Democratic convention with another Democratic ticket, and di reeled bv wise counsels, is the sole hope of the Democratic future and would be the one refuge for those Democrats who have nowhere else to go. "Failure to respect the convictions and exigencies of these Democrats will be in the highest degree unsafe, us, between Mr. McKinlev and Mr. Krvan in the final outcome; Mr. Bryan would 10 " " 8 1-2C. 12 l-2o " " 10c Ready-made sheets aud pillow eases.

Excel epurate skirts probably get as many oi uiese voters as Mr. McKinley, while many would refuse to go to the noils, but a sound Demo cratic ticket would get them all. Thus, after the election, the opposition may be organized on a sound basis, ana not relegated to the wild horses of Populism for three years more of ruinous agita tion with another life and death struggle at the end of them. It is not certain that a ticket headed by Messrs. Carlisle or Whitney, placed on a real Democratic platform, would not get more votes than the ticket headed bv Mr. Brvan. Such a ticket would not imperil the result, but would assure it. The complete disintegration of the Dem ocratic party is an event to be contem plated by thoughtful persons only with forebodings of evil."

Editor of the Reformer, Sir: As one of the members of the Vermont delegation to Chicago who declined to vote for any camhdate on such a platform as the one adopted, I have read with interest your editorial on the nominees of that convention. I cannot see how any one can a-eept the national platform as adopted, with out refusing adherence to the state platform. They are diametrically the reverse of each other in their construc tion of the Democratic faith : are we to change the state platform by a new convention, or allow the inconsistency to remain? The argument that we should bow to the will of the majority is good under ordinary circumstances, but is it good hen good Democratic doc trines as old as the party are swept aside, and discarded Republican theories taken up? Is not the tribute of faith sombthing more than a name, and since when nave ermont Uemu- rats accepted the will of majorities as binding in, such matters? Is it true that southern and western deie gates ever have or would now yield their convictions on the subject for party success? Air. Bryan himself is quoted without denial as saving he would never support a gold man on a gold platform if adopted at this con vention, and it is not true that in any previous convention this question has been of much importance, nor has any resolution heretofore adopted on it been incapable of a construction favorable to silver. No gold Democrat to my knowledge today is unwilling to recog nize silver when it can be done safely, by international agreement ; but that was not enough, not only must new and horrible doctrines on the subject be adopted, but Democracy as exempli fied by the only president we have had for nearly 40 yeais be utterly ignored, Democratic precedents be cast aside, and the rights of sovereign states in vaded to make their two thirds vote. It seems to me if we meekly submit now to all this we may continue to do so, and Democracy soon be nothing but a name. It is because I do believe in the old Democratic faith that I cannot accept this platform nor support its nominees at the polls. I cannot exchange it for either Populism or McKinleyism, nor can I place at such a crisis party supremacy ahead of what seems to me the national honor. I have every respect for sincere sil ver men here or anywhere. 1 appre ciate the sufferings that have caused the present movement, hut feeling as I do that its success will only intensify them, that it is simply Republican paternalism in the stolen garment of our old faith, it seems to me the first duty of every man who thinks as I do. to first help purge the party of its new found Republican heresies, and when our love of country is thus shown to be superior to love of party success we can, I believe, ask successfully to be entrusted with the overthrow of those other Kenublican doctrines equally as detestable if Dot as danger ous as those which have already cap tu red our national organization. Yours truly, W. H. Creamer.

Itoublinr the burden unon I gvtd means doub.ine the means of necessitr, andl I i""i'ttng the nivalis of necessity doubles tot , ralue thereof I Puts the Milvcr Argument as Kfllcicnt as Any One Has Done. Geo. Fred Williams had a signed editorial in tbo Lawrence, (Mass. ) Sun, Sundav in which he Haid : 'In the first place our present mnnev system is a failure. It brought us in 18(13 to a panic, in which one-quarter of the railroads were brought to the hands of receivers, and many hundreds f millions were lost to the industry and labor of the land. We conhuently .xpected that the repeal of the silver purchase law, known as the Sherman act. would remedy the evil ; we had a slight show of improvement, and then matters grew worse, until the whole country is in despair. I'rices, which have gone steadily tlon'n for twenty years, have fallen faster in the last three years than ever before : gold, whih is our greatest necessity in ill is tnergency, is leaving the country by onstant drain unon the treasury nd it is clear that the gold standard under such terrible strain that another panic may result, which will nvolve the failure of the gold stan- lard, an:l we shall then arrive at a fill er standard, whether we wish or not. There is no hope in the present sit- ation, and it is difficult to see how a syBtem, which is toppling under the administration of President Cleveland, an be expected to stand and be Irengtheued under such a man as Mr. MeKinlev. The Democratic party olftrs the remedy of free coinage of silver. No man can say exactly what the results f free coinage at this time will be, as the problem is really new in the world's history. But the highest financial authorities agree that fie steady fall of prices for wenty years is due to the demonetl ation of silver by tbe great nations f the world between 1870 and ltWO, and that only the restoration of silver to its former dignity as a money metal will rescue us from tbe downward course of prices, which, of course, means bankrupcy. t ab appears in the Republican plat form, the desirability of bimetallism is admitted, but it is claimed that the United States is not strong enough single handed to lift the price of stiver to the price which it is exchangeable for gold at 10 to 1, namely 1.2!?4 an ounce. Tho Democratic party says con fidently that the opening of trie mints of silver will restore the status of 1873, and give the whole world the acknowl edged boon of bimetalism. The Be pubiicau party says that we must wait until the great nations of Kurope. join in the effort, but it is perfectly clear that England will refuse so that there is no prospect of international agreement until by the adoption of free coinage in the United States. Eu ropean nations are driven to do it. It seems to me that this country can only gain by the free coinageof silver, and I have coridence that there would be co permanent premium upon gold bv reason of it. Hut even if the silver dollar should bo at some discount, the tirjcess of scaling debts would be much healthier than the bankruptcy of the whole country under the present system. Bankruptcy is bad for creditor as well as debtor. while a possible loss tnrough a slight fall in the value of the dollar would be a gaia to tbo credtor if it brought with it general proserity, higher prices and higher wages. The prostration of industry is i loss to everyone, and revival of busi nees -must be obtained by some method, or general misery will result. I am disappointed and shocked bv the violence which characterizes tbe words of those who support the gold standard ; their talk is the most abusive known since the war. Never theless, we must go on with argument, and may eventual)' arouse the business men of the east to a realizing sense that it is a false monetary system which is ruining them. As it seems to be admitted even by gold monometallists mat rising prices will attend the free coinage of silver. and that business will revive under it. 1 am willing to risk my opinion against theirs that this return of pros perity will be not only apparent, but real; not only temporary but per nianent. I advise all who agree with me to ask all thinking men to suspend judg ment till they hear the full argument. Brunsvicks, Please.

Senator Don Cameron of Penn sylvania, long the foremost Republican advocate of free silver in the east, announces his purpose to support McKinley.- "I am for' free silver, but I'm not a fool." is his way of putting it. This is interpreted to mean that if the Chicago platform hat! contented itself with simply declaring for free coinage.be might have supported it. But He can't stomach the rest of it.

A great surprise has been caused by the announcement that Z. G. Simons of Kenosha, the wealthiest man in southern Wisconsin, ha de clared himself as unqualifiedly in favor of the election of Bryan' and Sewall and has indorsed the entire Chicago platform. Mr. Simons is president of tbe First national bank. owns large business blocks, is presi dent of the Xorthwestern wire mat tress compauy and of the northwestern telegraph company, whose wires now form, under lease, a great portion of the corthwesternUnion telegraph com pany, and controls large holdings in railway stocks. He has alwava been a Republican. As expected the Tammanv leaders have decided to endorse Brvan and are organizing for a ratification meetine. This course places Tammany hall in direct antagonism to Senator Hill and which had decided I to do nothing till September. Comptroller of the Currency Eckels believes that a gold standard Demo cratic ticket will be nominated at a mass convention of gold standard Dem ocrats probably to be held in Chicago within tbe next six weeks, it is not necessary to have a national commit tee call regularly elected delegates. He believes this is the only effective way to tight Bryan and free silver. Congressman Towne of Duluth. the Republican recresentative from the Sixth Minnesota District, who joined the silver bolters, has been repu diated by his constituents. The dis trict convention has unanimously indorsed the St Louis platform and nominated another candidate. The Connecticut Democrats, it is now decided, will bold another state convention before they finally shape their course in the campaign.
