THE great rush of people to take advantage ol our extraordinary offers in uncalled for suits 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 faat 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
estaUishment. It is by advertising and making a feature of selling these suits that they find it more advantageoia to consign them to us than to attempt
to dispose of them from their own establishments. (

NEW V011IC, Nov. 9.-A dispatch lo
tho Tribune from London nays:
Tne Oninm emperor liiu airaln iuo
(coded In commanding tho attention
o( Europu and lnorwuliir his wnnonal
printlgo and Influence. Ht nwlvod
yvsterday lit Potsdam, with pomp,
tiitolliM-8 and cordlulity, tint rtuf and
v.iirlrm of KuhMii, who had boin visit
ing their relations In Hesse, and there
vw conference ltweii Count Mu
ravleff and lw German chancellor and
th(r hlh dignitaries of MaXv.
Thcso courtesies were a concession to
the old Hi-haul of diplomacy, which,
then trained by Ulnmurck, believed
that the blithest Interests of Germany
wore promoted by a (food understanding
and ox-ret agreements with Husslo,
The day nxod for this mating of the
two sovereigns was also chuwn for th
nlllclal announcement of various secret
arrangemonts mado with FJngUuid
made In advance of tho German em
peror's vlBlt to the queen. These In
cludo tho renunciation of English
rights In Mamoa In favor of Germany.
Compensations for England were
foutiil In the cetwlon of two easterly
Islands of the Solomon group and the
abandonment of German rights In the
Tonga group and Savage. Islands, the
abolition of Q9nnan consular Jurisdic
tion In Zanzibar and an arrangement
for the delimitation of British and
German frontiers In the Hinterland of
These exchanges of territory o,nd jur
isdiction are too intricate to be under
stood except by experts of the Royal
Geographical Society, although the
leading writers make a brave attempt
to explain them In today's London
Journal. .What Is of the highest lg
nlflisnce Is the evident that England
nd Germany or heartily In accord
and "tu ruling by ouch other.
No diplomatist believes that tho I1T
lln announcement, confirmed by the
foreign oflloe hero. Is a complete dls
cloture of th w'iit ugreement be
tween England and Germany. The
1 deepest things ore still univveuled,
I but enough Is laid bare to prove that
Lord Salisbury has secure! a free hand
In South Africa nJid the co-oeratlon
of Germany In preventing European
Intrigue or Intervnrtlon while the
Ilrltlsh army I fighting a great battle
In a remote quarter of the empire.
The German emiHTor has become
England's ally, and he allows the world
to know It on the day when he em
brace the csar and drinks his health.
He also Justifies the elaborate prepa
ration made by the royal family 'or
welcoming him to England, with the
Duke of Comiaught and the Duke of
York to nalute him at Sheerness, with
the Prince of Wale to meet him at the
niatlon at Windsor, wWh the queen
herself to stand at tho head of the
grand staircase with the portraits of
his grandfather and father to look
down upon him from the wills of the
famous tapestry room and wilh all
England outside ready to proclaim him
k royal friend and sturdy ally the
name England that was euger to have
war with Germany four years ago.
Another coincident which does not
escape observation hero Is that this
revelation of diplomatic secrets Is made
ithe day after the American elections,
In which the purty In power has se
cured a general .verillot of popular
approval. Diplomatists here assume
with confidence thit England has not
sacrificed American friendship or In
terest)! In the Siimoan settlement and
that the partition of territory between
the United States and Germany has
received the sanction of the three
powers concerned In tho tripartite con
vention, which has ceuaed to be a
practical method of governing the
Leader writers for the press take this
view, and also forecast a hearty Ger
man co-operation in the state depart
ment' new p.illcy requiring European
guarantees for an open door In the far
east and equality of commercial privi
leges for all maritime nations.
This view la justified by the latest
dispatches from IUtIIii. Everything,
Indeed, points to the full accord of the
three powers In all these arrangements.
The German emperor was warned lout
year that his altKudo toward America
has helped to bring the United States
and England Into close and friendly
relations, and has made approaches to
both, and the threw greatest Industrial
and commercial nations of the world
are now brought Into a circle of good
feeling and common liittreuls without
a formal convention or an entangling

In an Interview regarding the results

"I anticipate a great change In the
conduct of affairs by the administra

dominant minority now opposing the
policy of the administration under the
name of anti-Imp rallts will control
the next house of representatives.
"About Massachusetts, there is not
much to say. The character and well
known opinions of Governor Crane are

Indluna Man's Device May Oust All
A device has been Invented by a resi
dent of Indianapolis which Is expeoled
to work a revolution in the matter of
firlne- enelnes on railroad trains. It
will soon be givan a teat by the Penn

The work of the machine Is to throw
