We are making a general clean-up in oar
Skirt Department this week. On looking
through our stock we find too many low
priced Skirts. Better ones have had the
preference this season, which is, of course,
not lamented by us. It is our ambition to
sell goods, and the better the qualities the
more agreeable to as. But to the point:
Lack of sales in these cheaper grades leaves
too many on our racks, and to give them
the benefit of a good-bye start as well as to
give our customers a special opportunity,
we have marked about fifty black and fancy

A. Q. Williams &
Moliler, of tne 0. R. & N.. and Hall, of
the Great Northern. Meet.
MAKE IT WARM
FOR THE N. P.
Union. Pacifie and Great Northern Will
Back Up the 0. R. & N. in Its Bat
tle W ith the Northern Pacific for
Supremacy in the Great Northwest.
Portland, Dec. 1. It looks as if the
Oregon Railway & Navigation Co., backed
by the Great Northern any Union Pa
cific, intends to cripple the Northern
Pacific in the West. Some momentous
plans are on foot.
President James Hill 13 due to arrive
in Spokane today. President Mohler,
accompanied by Traffic Manager Gamp
bell, of the O. R. & N., left today for
Spokane. A special from Spokane says
that the Great Northern magnate and
Mr. Mohler have arranged a conference
to be held in Spokane today or tomorrow.
This coming upon the heels of the row
between Morgan of the Northern Pacific
and Hill of the Great Northern, is sig
nificant. Something is in the air.
If it were not for recent events, the
meeting might be attributed to the old
phantom of a rumor that Mr. Mohler
knowing the O. R. & N. was to be ab
sorbed by the U. P., was hobnobbing
with Mr. Hill for a comfortable berth.
For this time at least the rumor is sidetracked.
Something more significant is on foot.
Shrewd railroad men who follow the
trend of events say that the two will con
sult for the purpose of putting a quietus
upon the Northern Pacific in the West
ern country. It will certainly result in
a lively fight for territory and may lead
to another disastrous warfare.
Events are passing rapidly in the rail
road world. That there is a very nneasy
feeling for fear rate-cutting may follow
the fight for territory is shown in the
fact that telegrams were received in all
the local offices today announcing an
iron-bound agreement between the Great
Northern, Northern Pacific and Union
Pacific was formed to keep freight rates
at tariff. It is to be effective from today.
Each road is asked to bind itself to the
agreement and declare that it will not
grant concessions which mean the same
thing as cutting below tariff rates.
Some of the roads thus appealed to
claim that they have always maintained
tariff rates, and eay that while they are
willing to continue doing so, they see no
necessity of them signing such an agree
ment, as it would be a tacit admission
of their guilt.

A PECULIAR REMEDY
Something About the New Discovery for
The Rev. FI. Bell, a highly esteemed
minister residing in Weediport,, Cayuga
Co., N. Y., in a recent letter writes as
follows: "There has never been any
thing that I have taken that has relieved
the dyspepsia from which I have suffered
for ten years except the new remedy
called Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. Since
taking them I have had no distress at
all after eating and again after long
years can sleep well. Rev. F. I. Bell,
Weedsport, N. Y., formerly, Idaha,
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is a re
markable remedy, not only because it is
a certain cure' for all" forms of indiges
tion, by becanse it seems to act as thor
oughly in old chronic cases of dyspepsia
as well as in mild attacks of indigestion
or biliousness. A person has dyspepsia
simply because the stomach is over
worked, all it wants is a harmless, vege
table remedy to digest the food and thus
give it the much needed rest.
This is the secret of the success of this
peculiar remedy. No matter how weak
or how much disordered the digestion
may be, Stuart'? Dyspepsia Tablets will
digest the food whether the stomach
works or not. New life and energy is
given not only to the stomach but to every
organand nerve in the body. A trial of this
splendid medicine will convince the most
skeptical that dyspepsia and all stomach
troubles can be cared. ' The tablets are
prepared by the F. A. Stuart Co., of
Marsh nil Mich.", but so popular has the
remedy become that Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets can now be obtained at any drug
store at 50 cents per package. Send for
book on stomach diseases free.

Philippines say that the insurgents there
have decided not to recognize the ces

and that they will resist to' the last.
It is also claimed that the United
States will require 70,000 troops to put
down the rebellion, and it is alleged that
the insurgents bold ten thousand Span

The Ainsworth left Nelson last night

Straggle for Life.
Spokane, Nov. 30. A Nelson special
to the Spokesman-Review gives further
particulars 0? the wreck of the Ains
worth, as follows:
The starboard lifeboat was first
launched. Six passengers sprang into
it and it was swamped. All went down
but Johnson, who divested himself of
bis overcoat and got on board again.
The port boat was next launched, but
the maddened Italians jumped in and.
it was swamped. Four of the Italians
were drowned. The others were saved.
The boat was subsequently righted up
and a part of the survivors got into it
and paddled two miles to shore. There,
a bonfire was lighted and the boat re
turned and brought off seven men who
were banging to the ropes. A third
trip brought off the remainder of the
The wrecked party was taken to Pilot
bay, and this morning the Kodanee
brought them to Nelson.
The Ainsworth is a wreck, half
beached at Crawford bay. At the time
of the disaster she carried nineteen pas
sengers and a crew of twelve.
WILL BE SIGNED
WITHIN A WEEK
Work of the Peace Commission Pro
Paris, Dec. 1. The work of the peace
commission is proceeding rapidly, and
unless there is an unexpected bitch, the
treaty will be signed within a week.
The peace commission did not hold a
joint secsion today, owing to the fact
that it was ascertained at 2 p. m. that
the preliminary clerical work was not
completed. It was therefore agreed by
the presidents to defer the meeting un
til tomorrow afternoon.
