'I IK great rush of people to take advantage
ol our extraordinary offers in uncalled (or suits and overcoats has teen marvelous from the very beginning.
I t. ,ru ,.f .1,. ...it, l,as become so crcat that we have been compelled to open correspondence with over one hundred of the largest Tail-
orin- concerns throughout the country in order to get these suits fa enough to supply the enormous demand. These are not misfits, but suits
made to order on which deposits have ken paid and which for imkown 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
$26.00 Suits and Overcoats, $12.60
$30.00 Suits and Overcoats, $16.00
$36.00 Suits and Ovei coats. $17 60
$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
fit you.- T
Suits to Order
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 Js 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:

NBW YORK, Nov. 13. Concerning
the projected combination of leading
shipbuilding concerns, outlined In a
dispatch from San Francisco, Jefferson
"The subjsot of a combination of
leading shipyards of the United States
la aa yet In embryo. It has been
talked of, but t Is too soon to speak
about It; It Is all In the air. The) ship
yards are all dolns a good business and
the Cramps, In which we have a large
Interest, are particularly busy just now.
There are perhaps eight or ton leading
shipyards in the country and all are
getting big demands from foreign na
tions to build their Bhlps.
The work our ships did at Santiago
and Manila and their great endurance
have attracted the attention of foreign!
powers. The Cramps especially, have
orders from Japan and Russia, The
shipyards are making so much'money
at present that they may not care to
enter Into a combination. There Is no
other firm associated with us in the
I cannot say anything as to the ship
yards mentioned In the dispatch be
yond what I have sold about the
Cramps. The year, however, Is draw
ing to a close and nothing may be done
at present. The statement that the
consolidated value of the shipyards
mentioned in th-i dispatch exceeds $20.-,
OiW.'IOfl Is oorrevt."
The San Fru'ielsco dispatch waa
shown to Collls P. Huntington iai
evening- He read the dispatch through
cwfully and thm said: "About a
month ag, C. F. Candy, manager of
the Krslgn Car Works, of Huntington
V. Va., asked me if I would go Into a
comulnatl.Mi of shipyards. I have not
given a thought to the matter, and do
not know anythln? about the proposed
combination. I dot know one thing,
however, and that Is, I have the best
shipyard In the wwld. I also know the
Sellgmans are large owners In the
"The dispatch speaks of the concerns
mentioned as being worth more thanj
$JO,iXK),000. That Is undoubtedly true,
1ks I value my shipyard at about that
figure. I would dispose of It, however,
and should not ask tliat price, but I
should want to get what It cost me.
The shipyard at Newport News, Va., Is
mine and Is not mortgaged.
"It was my orgimU Intention," Mr.
Huntington went on, "to start a ship
yard plant In the best location In the
world and ! succeeded In my purpose.
It Is right at the gateway to the eea.
There Is never any Ice and It Is never
so cold but you can hammer metal out
of doors. Ships can also got cool there
of the best, and as cheap aa anywhere.
"I would put my shipyard Into the
combination If I got my price and also
take some stock, but the United States
government should have my yard. One
reason why I do not want to part with
It, Is that I am experimenting with
labor. I am thinking of putting up a
cotton mill to give some light work to
the women and children of the men
employed In the yard, which I know
would be welcome."
