To Our Patrons and Friends:
At the last session of the State
Legislature, a law was enacted, impos
ing a tax on all Merchants giving Trad
ing Stamps and other gift premiums,
which makes it absolutely prohibitive
for us to continue giving them.
This law goes into effect May 24, 15.
There will no doubt be a long legal
fight in the Courts, testing the consti
tutionality of this law and we do not
feel justified in trying to evade the law,
nor do we care to take the chance,
while this suit is pending.
Therefore when our present supply of Stamps is ex
hausted, we will discontinue giving them.
In the meantime we will endeavor to make our
prices so attractive that our Patrons will lose nothing by
reason of this change.
Thanking you for past favors, and soliciting your
further patronage, we are
Yours very truly

through tho morcr question.
Iho battle of the bullotH ho far
us St. .JohnH in concerned has
boon terminated and tho result
is a matter of general know

men of tho city have asked tho
opinion of tho legal department
of Portland, and Attorney La
Roche, it sccniB.has decided that
everything is regular so far.
Tho merger! toa are apparently
most confident that tho law has
boon fully complied with and on
proas no loar concern nir tho ro
suit of any legal suit that might
do instituted, bo tlioro is no
reason whatever for anyone to
become- embittered one with an
other over tho matter. We un

thwart tho will of tho people,

that some of the more radical
