UPWARDS OF A HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS' WORTH OP "SPIC AND SPAN" NEW,
High-Class Merchandise to Be Slaughtered This Week
!n the Great "Cancellation Soles" That Start This Morning.
Chicago's troubles and consequent business depression have caused a loss to its big merchants of millions of dollars. Orders have "been cancelled right
and left and manufacturers have been at their "writs' end to know horr to dispose of the goods thrown hack on their hands through cancellations. It was not
a question of LOSS hut of HOW MUCH? Our New York office at 438 Broadway has been hesleged by mill and factory agents and importer with goods
to sell at a loss for a month past. The wires hare "been kept hot by message flying across the continent from our resident New York buyers and the Port
land house. The occasion was so unusual and involved such vast amounts that a quick and constant touch has been kept, day and night, for several weeks
between our New York and Portland offices. Instructions to buy when concessions warranted were given but concessions must be greater than ever before
in history, and they have been. More than $100,000 worth of the new merchandise has arrived and must be sold this week, for more's to come. Chicago's
misfortune is Portland's gain, through her greatest store that's ever alert and watchful for opportunities of saving dollars to its patrons. Some, lots are
small may not stand over one day's selling, others are larger and may last longer. But there'll be tremendous onslaught today. Be early and sure to get
your share. f
