THE great rush of people; to take advantage ol our extraordinary offers in uncalled for suits and overcoats has teen 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

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.

NICW YORK, Nov. 2.-A special to
the Herald from Wahlnirtoii eayn:
Vice President Hobart'a announce
ment, through mtMiibere of his fnmlly,
of his retirement fron public life will
make It neeesary for the- republican
national convention to chooee another
running mate for Preeldot McKlnley,
should the prealdMt bo renominated
next yenr. It will also necessitate the
choice of a prold!Vt pro tern for the
nennte to preeldo over Its dollbratlon
until a new vice president takes office.
Republican politicians are practically
agreed that Mr. Hobart's sucoewor on
the republican ticket next year must
come from New York state. Senator
TUvtt was In this city today, and It Is

he would be an Important faotor In the
speculations tut to tho candidates.
Ills nomination Is regarded, however,
a being praotlcally out of the question,
and tho two men more dlHcunned are
Secretary Fto;rt and General Frederick
Grant. Which one of thorn receives the
republican nomination may depend up
on the fortunes of war In tho Phlllplnea.
There are men who have served with
General Grant slnoo hla appointment to
the army who believe that he has In
herited to a great degree the military
genius of IiIh father, and that all he
needs Is an opportunity.

show whether those opinions are well
founded, but If he should command the
