Must have a good excuse. In fact there must be a reason of more
than ordinary importance for breaking in on the run of regular holi
day trade announcements, and but for such a cause we -would still have
been hammering away on Christmas gifts, for there's a stock here
that will stand a lot of talking about without overestimati-j its mer
its one lota.
But to the point. A. chance came our way last week which we could
not resist and we bought two lots of High Grade Coats at a big sacri
fice from regular prices.
The First Lot
consisted of Ladies' strictly high class Jackets, embracing all the
popular shades, styles and materials of the season, silk lined, and mnn
tailored in the most perfect manner possible.
The Second Lot
consisted of 325 children's coats, in sizes ranging from 4 to 12 years,
r The variety of styles, materials nnd colorings is infinite nnd better
J tailored garments for children's wear have never been seen in this
These Are Not Samples
nor are they out of condition in the slightest degree. In a word they
are clean nnd bright ns a new pin, and have all the latest midwinter
fashion touches on them, the manufacturer made too many of them,
however, and we bought them nt one third off regular prices.
You buy at the same terms
A detailed description of the garments included in this important
purchase is' impossible, therefore we will slmplyad d that we have
taken each of the two lots purchased and divided them into four lots

DEMOCRATS OF TWENTIETH
WARD ABE AGITATED.
An Uncertainty Prevails ab to
Whether W. G. O'Malley Is the
Regular Nominee for Select Coun
cilmanHe Was Nominated at n
Meeting Held on Tuesday Night,
but It Is Claimed That This Was
Not Held According to Party
Rules Other Candidates to Have
Caucuses News at the Fair.
Is or Is not W. G. O'Malley the regu
lar Democratic nominee for nslcct
councilman In the Twentieth ward?
This Is the Question which Is now ugl
tntlng the cltltsens of tlint part or
Mr. O'Mnlley was nominated at a
meeting hold In Corcomn's hall on
Tuesedny night, but It Is contended by
the siippmters of the two candidates
whom he defeated, William J, Ruins
and Edward Melvln, that tho meeting
was not called by tbe Democratic
ward committeemen, nnd that his
nomination was not, thciofore, lu ac
cordance with the paity rules.
Tuesday night's meeting was at
tended by Just seventy-two voters,
and after Messrs. Burns, O'Malley and
Melvln hud ben nomlnnted it wns de
cided to have those favoring each can
didate take separate corners and be
counted. The supporters of Mr. O'Mal
ley took ono corner, while tho sup
porters of both other candidates, real
izing that they would have no show
separately against Mr. O'Malley,
humped themselves In the opposite;
Tbeie was some little dispute as to
the result of the count, but It was
finally decided to be ,n.S to 34 In favor
of Mr. O'Malley, who was declared
nominated. Just who would have
been declared the winner In case the
opposite corner contained a majority
of the voters present Is an open ques
tion. At any rate, much dissatisfaction
exists as the result or the meeting,
nnd it is probable that each pros
pective candidate will have a litle cau
cus of his own within these next few
days. The first of these Is announced
for to-night, when a meeting will be
held in Phillips' ball on Fig street.
The candidate to be nominated at this
meeting will, It Is understood, be ex
Commun Councilman Daniel Battl",
whose friends are engineering the
holding of tbe meeting.
There will be, very likely, a pretty
little problem for the county com
missioners when It comes to deciding
whose name Is to go on the official
