TMffllWI T HE great rush of people to take al vantage oi our extraordinary offers in uncalled for suits and overcoats has been marvelous rom 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 establishmcnt. It is by advertising and making a feature of selling these suits that they find it more advantageous to consign them to ua than to attempt to dispose of them from their own establishments.

It was read last night be- Cnnlie.No I'roof or I'rctcnsc Tlmt Great llrltnin Ever Occupied Cliilmcd Territory. '' WASHINGTON, Nov, 4. Ex-Secretary John W. Foster, a member of the Joint high commission to settle differ ences between tho United States and Cnnada. has prepared a summary of this government's case on the Alaska ore the American Geographical Sod Mi. Fouler reviews the history of the negotiations between Russia and Great I'rllaln and showed that the British only sought to prevent the extension of the liUMlun claim eastward of the Pocky mountains. The British govern ment was then prepared to accept a boundary line a hundred miles from the coast ot the mainland. Great Britain afterward succeeded In reducing this strip to a width of ten marine leagues. ItUHsIa permitted a 10-yeiur license to fish and hunt In the estuaries, but de clined to make It permanent. That license was terminated at the end of th period, and Mr. Foster says Is Itself Inconsistent with any Interpre tation of the treaty other than the com plete sovereignty of Russia all over not only the strip of mainland, but all the buys ond Inlets. Mr. Foster showed that In 1S39 the Hudson Fiiy Company leased from the KiiKslan government the very strip In uuettlon, as shown by the Russian maps, and In 1S.17 a parliamentary com mittee, examining the head of the com pany, brought out the fact thata Rus sian sovereljjnty extended 30 nautical miles Inland, following the Indentations of the const. In 1878,' he continued, a provisional boundary was esftablnlshed by the I'nlted States at the crossing of the Stlckeen river which follows the present American contention, ana in 1S76, a criminal being tried and con victed, was released by Canadian courts because his offense was committed "In American territory." Mr. Foster quitted the British Secre tary Canning In his Instructions to the Duke of Wellington, wherein he says: "Enlightened statesmen, and Jurists have long hold as Insignificant all titles of territory that are not founded on ac tuul occupation, and that title is, In the opinion of tho most esteemed writers on public law to be established by prac tical use." With this as a basis, Mr. Foster made the following presentation of the Amer ican position regarding the boundary: "There Is ni cl.ilm or pretense thnt the Prltlsh authorities or subjects ever occupied nny of tho territory now In dlopute except under the lease cited, or ever exercised or attempted to exercise any nets of sovereignty over the strip or waters Inclosed by It. "First, sooa after the treaty of 1S25 the Russian government published a map claiming a strip of territory and j ment of Alaska has exercised various all the Interior waters of Om sea In closed by It "Second, the Russian-American com nanv established forts and posts within tho strip. Third, by virtue of the lease cited, which was a recognised assertion of Its sovereignty, Russia temporarily trans ferred these forts and jnsts to the Brit ish company. Fourth, at the termination of the ex tended lease, It re-entered and took pos and repeated acts of sovereignty over the strip and Interior waters Inclosed by It, and the writs of the t'nlted States trading 1 courts have run throughout Its whole extent. "Fifteenth, under the territorial claim of the United States and the protection of the government, cltliens of the Uni ted States have entered and occupied the strip, built cities and towns andi established Industrial enterprises there. "All the foregoing acts have taken y..Min ami remained In possession tilt place without a single protest or com the cession of Alaska to the United plaint on the part of the British or stRteSi j Canadian governments, except that "Fifth, It received the allegiance of some friction has occurred between the the native Indians Inhabiting the strip 'customs outposts as to the exact de- and exercised supervision over them.
