THE great rush of people to take advantage ol our extraordinary offers in uncalled for suits and overcoat has been marvelous from the very beginning.
The popularity of these suits has become so great that we have been compelled to open correspondence with over one hundred of the largest Tail
oring concerns throughout the country in order to get these suits farn enough to supply the enormous demand. These are not misfits, but suits
made to order on which deposits have been paid and which for unkown reasons remained uncalled for. Such things happen to every Tailoring establish
establishment. It is by advertising and making a feature of selling these suits that they find it more advantageous to consign them to us than to attempt
to dispose of them from their own establishments.

WASHINGTON. Nov. t-In view of
the cunvnt dtiK-umtlon of the military'
agreement between Gnru.l Dates and
the HUltnn of Zulu, tlie views of Presi
dent Schurman of tho Phillplno com
niltnluii on this subject ar tnteivotlng.
Mr. Schurman . was ono of the first
Americans to visit Jolo, the seat of the
SpitiilHh government In the Sulu archl
pelotro, and hod an extended Interview
with the sultan before tho arrival of
General Bulce. The arrangement en
tered Into between General Dates and
the sultan was considerably Influenced
by this meeting. Although the full text
of the agreement with the sultan has
not been made public by the Washing
ton authorities, It can be stalled that It
practically conforms to the previous
convention exlatlng between the sultan
and tho Spanish government.
In this agreement, Spain never
claimed any more than an external pro
tectorate In the Sulu group, the right to
suppress piracy In Its waters and pre
vent the periodical migrations of oath
bound Mohammedans who went to the
northern Inlands under a vow to kill
Christiana and thus secure an entrance
Profoaor Schurman eaid today when
questioned about the probable continu
ance of polygamy and slavery in tho
IkIiukIh after they came under American
dominion that tills was a subject which
would have to be dealt with In the most
careful fashion to bring about an ultl
mately satisfactory solution.
"It seems to me," sold he, "that were
It not for the Ignorance displayed, the
present hue and cry about polygamy
and slavery In these Islands would be
abholutely irlmtnal. In taking over the
Sulu group we have acquired n rights
exci-pi those bciUvathed to u by Spain.
She whs bound by her agreement with
the sultan not to Interfere with the re
ligion or customs of the Hands, and It
would be most unwise for us to attempt
this by force when It can be ulti
mately accomplished by the slower
method of civilisation and education, i
"The Sulu group contains about 100.-,
OM Inhabitants. They are all Moham-'
medans, as are about 150,000 of the res- j
Idents of Mindanao, directly east. To'
attempt to Interfere with the religions
of these people would precipitate one;
fnlted States, but It is my honest be- the number was John Jacob Astor. He ,
lief that what I haw just stated Is the Is now one of the prominent movers In
truth, and that any attempt to Inter-! the concern. J. Pierpont Morgan, whose.
fere by force In the Sulu Islands at name has been mentioned In connection :

this time will bring on a bloody and
wholly unnecessary war."

of the bloodiest wars In which this
country has ever been engaged. TheVj

mentally, from the residents of the'
VlBayan Inlands, powerful men and re-1
llglous fanatics of the most pronounced j
typ. who care nothing for death and;
believe that the road to heaven can bej
attained by killing Christians. Polyg-i
amy Is a part of their religion, and the,
slavery about which so much Is being
said Is a mild type of feudal bondage. I
"The sultan believes from what he
has seen of Americans that they arej
ready to b friendly and deal honesty
with him. Our soldiers and officers al-l
ready travel into the Interior of Jolo j
with perfect Impunity where Spaniards:
never dnred to ret foot. It has beeni
suggested Indirectly to the sultan thatj
he should maintain an American of
good standing as a confidential adviser j
at his court to aid him In the work of,
material development, for which the
beautiful group of Islands Is ready, and
which Is bound to come when they are!
thrown In touch with the civilised!
"I believe that he will take kindly to
this suggestion, and the leaven of civ
ilization Introduced In this way ulti
mately will do the work which armed
Interference with Immoral religious
customs never could accomplish, We
have before us In this case the exam
ple of England In her varlbus posses
sions and the Dutch In Java, where a
remarkable work of civilization and
progress has been accomplished. We
should take a leaf out of their book,
which shows that semi-barbarous peo
ple frequently can be led where thay
could not be driven.

cized for taking this stand In regard to

Company, recently Incorporated In New

with the great telegraph companies and
the five Atlantic cable companies.
Th-j office of the new concern is In the

From various sources, information

John Jacob Astor, William C. Whitney,

tonight from Mr. Wldener at his home
In Ogontx. He talked freely of the co
lossal scheme, which, he says, will bring
about a sweeping redaction In the cost
of transmission of electrical messages
all over the country. Among other
things he said:
"The plan has been under considera
tion for some time. Mr. Martin Maloy,
who was the active agent In the enter
prise, and may be said to hove engi

about a year.
"His efforts culminated when he suc
