TUB M0I1NIN0 ASTOKIaN, HATURDAY WVKMBKtt 4. 1899.
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 fat 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.
Uncalled for Garments at Half Price.
$20.00 Suits and Overcoats, $10.00
$25.00 Suits and Overcoats, $12.50
$30.00 Suits and Overcoats, $15.00
$36.00 Suits and Overcoats, $17 50
$40.00 Suits and Overcoats, $20.00
These garments are so !ar superior in
style, fit and finish to ready-made cloth
ing that comparisons are odious. Call
and examine them and see ii we can
fit you. '
We make suits to order from 5.00to$15 cheaper
than any other first-class tailoring establishment
in Portland. . . .
We are Tailors, Bear That in Mind
Not cheap garment makers, the only thing cheap about our suits is the price.
Our suits have that style fit and finish about them that well-dressed gentle
men appreciate. Astorians are cordially invited to call and inspect our goods
whether they buy or not:

A BIG TRUST
Arc you aware there is a movement now on foot
which proposes to combine all business interests,
and to issue and use combined credits instead of
money, and to make those credits absolutely safe.
If this succeeds, interest on money will be a thing
of the past as far as the commercial world is con
cerned. If you wish to understand the plan,
