The board remembers some caustic
criticism it received when it needed ad-
vice and encouragement. It needed
bread and was given a stone. The fol
lowing resolution, adopted by the board
yesterday afternoon, shows that the
board does not forget, and Is not asleep:
"Whereas, this board of directors, on
the JOth day of May, 1S39, received from
th Taxpayers' League, under the cer
tificate of its secretary, a copy of a res
olution which 'condemned in unmeas
ured terms' the aotion of this board in
borrowing money with which to o.iv
salaries of teachers and actual neces-'
ary expenses of our rc hoots; and
"Whereas, we had, long prior to the
receipt of said resolution, in order to'
relieve the taxpayers, reduced the
school year from ten months to nine
months, and reduced wages so low that
we find it difficult to secure and re- t
tain competent teachers; and

During the past few days we have talked exclusively on Men's and Boys' Clothing, and an exceptionally fine line of
Overcoats which were placed at prices that drew even the attention and presence of Portlanders to give them a trial;
and all who purchased are mightily proud of the bargains the y realized.
Now, We lave Something Else to Say
It is this: We have in stock a rich and varied assortment of Underwear and Neckwear that in comparison is fully as reasonable i o buy ae the Clothing.
Re-ally these g00d3 must be Seen to be appreciated. They are new strictly so in material and design, and are identically the same class of goods as will be found on sale at this moment in the
lea ling houses of New York City.

price asked and are sure to please the purchaser. Many of

While inspecting this department, link also lo see Lot R

Drawers. We have decided for a few ilays only to sell them
at $2.00 a suit. This is a remarkably low ligure, il you ure
posted as to values in this direction.
And naw wo are making a still further cut on the justly celebrated Lu
zerne Underwear. Think of it! Only $2.50 a suit. We have ju.-t been
selling it at $3.00, but we want the hulk of Astoria's trade nnd we propose
to get it. You cannot beat this price nor the goods anywhere un earth.
This Week, Wright's Health-Fleeced Underwear, $2.50 per suit. All who
wear underwear will understand that this is an amazingly cheap price for
Wright's noted make, They are unexcelled for winter on account of be
