TH E great rush of people to take advantage ol our extraordinary offers in uncalled for suit and overcoats 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 misfita, 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
$35.00 Suits and Overcoats, $17 50
$40.00 Suits and Overcoats, $20.00
These garments are so tar superior in
style, fit and finish to ready-made cloth
ing that comparisons are odious. Call
and examine them and see if we can

Public anxiety has beon Increased by

A representative of one of the .largest

from the Transvaal that many Intelli

The P..ier Oovernmont Could Not Issue
Letters of Marque If It Di-sired.
NEW YOP.K. Nov. 6.-A special to the
Herald from Washington says:
It Is doubted here whether th Boer
government could Issue letters of mar
que to privateers that would give the
vessels carrying them the right to be
treated otherwise than as pirates.
In thu first place, the Uoors have ac
cepted the suieralnty of Groat Britain
by the treaty of 1SS1, the International
status of the flag Is very doubtful. As
suming, however, that the flag of the
Transvaal would be recognized on the
high seas, there are serious practical
difficulties In the way of the Issuance of
letters of marque by a government that
has no seneoast and no ports.
The vesels could not be armed and
equipped In any neutral port without
making the neutral government liable
to heavy damages to the British govern
ment under the principles laid down
In the Alabama case. Tneycould not
procure coal In any port In the world
with. ut a violation of the principles of
neutrality. If any nation should allow
privateers with letters from the Trans
vaal government to Issue from Its ports
'or to coal In Its ports, It would be al
most equivalent to a declaration of war
against Great Britain and the British
government would probably so regard
Aside from this, the general senti
ment of the clvlllzntod world Is strongly
against privateering. By the deelara
Iton of Paris, the signatory powers
agreed to the abolition of prlvatoering.
The only maritime nations not Joining
in this declaration were the United
Staites, Spain nnd Mexico. Tho United
States refused to Join because it do-
sired, to secure from other nations a
declaration exempting private property
at sea from capture. While not pledged
to. abstain from privateering, the Uni
ted Slates would probably never resort
to It unless In retaliation.
In the recent wnr with this country,
Spain Was forced by the public opinion;
of Europe to abstain from Issuing let-'
tors of marque.
