General Agnus Is a Newspaper Man and Not
Baltimore, January 4. The following
editorial will appear in to-morrow's -imeri-ccm:
During the past several weeks many news
papers of the East and South have published
complimentary references to General Felix
Agnus in connection with the representation of
thoSouth on the Cabinet of General Harrison.
Wo may, we think, without trans
gressing the bounds of good taste, extend our
heartiest thanks to those who have taken an
active interest in this matter, and say that
General Agnus, while fully appreciating
the kindness of his fellow Republic
ans, would prefer to remain at the
the head of the American even should an
honor which is invisible materialize. The
direction of a newspaper is a great responsi
bility. When that journal is the leading repre
sentative of enterprise in the South the power
that it wields is beyond any subordinate politi
cal office and its welfare has an importance
that cannot be over-estimated.
Wo confidently look for the breaking up of
the solid South in 1892, and it will not occur in
one State, but in anumber of them. Once this
disintegration of sectionalism begins the prin
ciple of protection willfully assert itself and
the magnificent resources of those States will
be properly developed. It is an inspiring priv
ilege to be at the head of this coming revolu
tion, and the American appreciates the great
ness of its position. Certainly, then, no one
can blame General Agnus for preferring to re
main in the newspaper business. He is a news
paper man, not a politician.

new cases of smallpox have developed in the

"W. Noble, who was appointed Superin
tendent of the institution, beginning on
January 1, but who has kept away from the
place, went there and assumed his duties to
day. One of his first official acts was to tel
ephone down town: "For God's sake send
me that revolver, quick." About 40 pris
oners, from various counties, whose terms
have expired, are held under quarantine,
and all the prisoners are idle, which fer
ments the spirit of restlessness and increases
the danger of violence. The men are kept
locked in their cells as much as possible,
and are hecnminr. vprr nalvr- Thp frnnrrl nf.
j the penitentiary has been doubled to-night,

The disposition to be made of prisoners in
the penitentiary who are attacked by the dis
ease has made a great deal of controversy.
The new Superintendent insists that they
should be removed from the institution and
to the pesthouse as soon as they develop, but
tne neaitn authorities want to Keep tnem in
the penitentiary itself. The institution is
situated in a populous part of the city, and
there is much alarm over the matter.

making allegations of further fraud at the
recent election, with a new document, which
is signed and sworn to by 51 citizens, and

Colored moire silks at 50 cents a yard,
and at 75 cents, and at 1 three of the most
striking examples among other "mark-
downs" in colored silks the quality of
these moire silks is the up extreme, the low
down prices the other.
Did you read what we said about lace cur
tains in this paper yesterday? It was a very
plainly put statement of remarkably low
prices. Over 6,000 pairs of lace curtains in
stock here is the force that is depressing
these lace enrtain prices, and it can't be
stopped until this great over stock is re
duced to a very much smaller quantity.
Remember, there are fine, superfine curtains,
parlor curtains, library curtains, included
in this sale, and down the scale of quality
till you come to the 75 cents a pair curtains.
This January sale is no ordinary affair; it
is the upheaval that brings to the bargain
surface a vast quantity of desirable goods
irom every department ot tne store. JLnis
fact makes it the time of all others for you
to come here and see just where your wants
can be met and in the best grade of goods,
both for your own use and for the family's
and for house needs.

Our buver for this denartment chanced to
be in the largest retail houses in Boston and
New York recently, and having bis eyes
open to compare the bargain rates, for or
against, declares, and he knows whereof he
talks, that outside of a few instances, such
as cotton crash at 3 cents a yard and a stray
mart Hnirn in fnxrMo t oMa fl.m.cVc
both in cloths and by the yard, are actually
lower in price for quality than are to be had
in any of these largest Eastern linen de
partments. For instance German bleached
damasks to-day at 50 cents a yard, at this
price are good value by the lull price, but
you gain this mnch on each yard you buy.
Then the black damasks at 75 cents a
yard have extra width (72 inches) in addi
tion to extra weight and fine finish. In
fact, at our former price, ?1, thev were un
equaled. Thus at 75 cents they stand
above any linen bargain offered in America

past record; it is one series of acts showing our appreciation of the
patronage of the people. This has been the most successful season's
trade we have ever enjoyed, and having promised the good people one
of our old-fashioned surprises, we are giving evidence of our good will
to our customers by repeating our great success of a year ago, viz.
GIVING AWAY POSITIVELY FREE
EVERY TWENTIETH PURCHASE MADE.
No matter what you buy, if it be a twentieth sale, at the price you
pay, you will be called to the cashier's desk, receive your goods for
nothing and be handed back the money you paid. We do not do this as
an incentive for you to buy Clothing. No! No! Our low prices are the
magnets that should make you patronize us. We have simply adopted
the plan of giving away every twentieth sale so that we could impartially
distribute gifts to our legion of patrons.

In order that all our patrons shall have a fair opportunity of partici

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION:
For each and every article sold m every department a salesman's
check will go with the money and goods to a cashier's desk. These
checks will be numbered in the order in which they are received by the
cashier and every time the number of 'sales at the price no matter ia
what department reaches 20, a gong will ring and the person making
the twentieth purchase will have money refunded and get the goods for
nothing. No matter what the article may be our finest Elysian satin
lined Overcoat, our best Suit, a fine Hat, pair of Shoes, pair of Pants,"
Dress Suit or what not when the twentieth sale's check gets to the
cashier a gong will ring and when the gong sounds some one gets the
goods for nothing and that some one will be the party who makes the
