of the pressure bearing upon them
through the attention of their real es

are about to retire from the business
by selling the establishment to B. Brick
who has been managing the store for
them during the past month. It is un
derstood that Mr. Brick ia paid consid
erable cash, judging from his statement
to Tho Statesman's representative, and
he expects to have them paid off in
about a month's time. In the mean
time, the Knrights will still control

Brick has been a trnveling man for a

THE PLYMOUTH CLOTHING
Corner State and Liberty Streets
Salem, June 21, 1914.
DEAR FRIENDS: ' -
The accompaning news items, which appeared in the daily press, speak for themselves. I took
charge of this store on the thirteenth of May as manager. Since therf I have done everything
possible to make this store attractive as a buying center. I immediately reduced our prices and
' advertised this fact, as I wanted to meet in person the people of Salem and vicinity. Those who
have patronized this store during my management will bear testimony that I treated them with
KINDNESS, COURTESY and CONSIDERATION, and it is for this reason many of the nearby
town folks make the PLYMOUTH CLOTHING STORE their headquarters while in Salem.
Having already paid ENRIGHT & ENRIGHT, who succeeded the late OSCAR JOHNSON, a
large sum of money, I promised them I would try to give them the balance in thirty days. I have
v no other way of doing it than to sell mv stock, consisting of the well-known ALFRED BENJA
MIN Clothing, the CRAWFORD Shoes, STETSON Hats, CARHARTT Overalls, FERGUSON
McKENNY Shirts, the G. & M., B. V. D. and POROSKNIT Underwear, and hundreds of other
items too numerous to mention. Therefore I am preparing, by marking prices down, for a
REAL GENUINE SALE that will make this community sit up and take notice, for I never do
things by halves. I cannot at this time announce the opening day of the sale. However, if you
will keep your eyes on page three of our daily papers, also next Thursday's Oregon Gazette, it will
be called to your attention through these mediums.
I would like to impress on the public this fact, that every article bought during this coming
sale will absolutely be guaranteed by me to give satisfaction or money will be refunded. Remem
ber also that I am here to stay in business, and every PLEASED CUSTOMER will mean my
bread and butter, so you can rest assured that you will receive values such as you seldom get
Remember also that I am soliciting your help to meet this big payment, and if you will helpme
make good, I promise I will continue to keep prices as low as possible and help you to REDUCE
THE HIGH COST OF LIVING, and it will be my policy to make only a LEGITIMATE PROFIT
" AND NO. MORE. I believe I have explained my principles, and I beg your support and co-operation
in this gigantic undertaking, and will endeavor to make this store a credit to Salem.
1 Yours very truly,
Successor to Enright & Enright. Formerly the Oscar Johnson Store.
10 BE SOUGHT IN
Copenhagen, June 22. Tho expedi
tion Knttd Kasmussen is to attempt to
lead to the north po!e next summer will
not be a mere sporting dash, it was
stated today by Olo Olson, the Danish
mining magnate who will finance the
undertaking, but 11111 be mnde with a
view to the gathering of as much genu
inely scientific information as possible.
In merely having been to the pole,
this hnving been already achieved both
in tho north and south, Olsen said ho
nd liasimisHou agreed there was no
longer any great honor.
They considered, however, that
neither l'eary nor Amundsen brought
tmck any data which contiihut.'d great
cordingly, is what Kasmrsson will seek.
It was stated that tho expedition will
be the most completely equipped of any
ever sent into either the nortii or the
south. Kasmussen probably knows more
of Oreenlnnd than any other man liv
ing, and it was taken for granted that
it was by this routo that he would
make his attempt, lie expects to be
gone at least two years.
It was Kasmussen who was among tho
first to question I)?. Cook ou his re
turn from the north. Though not a
vehement champion of the American's
claims, ho was entitled to credit them

STOPPENBACK" SUIT ARGUED.
The suit of " Stoppenback, " plain
tiff and appellant, against Multnomnit
county, defendant and respondent, wan
argued this afternoon before the su
preme court. This i a suit brought to
enjoin the county of Multnomah from
issuing bonds for the construction of
the Portland-Vancouver bridge across
the Columbia. It eame tip for hearing
before Judge Cleeton in Tortlund, who
decided on demurrer that the complaint
did not state facts to constitute n.
cause of suit. Tho appellant's brief
sets up that it is unlawful to tax the
state to pay the interest on any coun
ty bonds, that it is unlawful for the.
county to sell bond for the construc
tion of property which is to be given
to the state, and that the whole bill
is unconstitutional. "Stop and back"
is suggestive of the ends desired -to c
attained in bringing the suit.
