ware so expensive in the end as depart
mental, hardware, or "general store"
We carry nothing but the very best
Sterling Silver and Silver-plated ware;
stock such as is found only in a first
class jewelry store, and yet our prices
are low, quality considered. We are not
satisfied to make a big. per cent on a
single sale, but want the volume of busi
ness and advertising that comes from
selling good goods cheap.

CZAR ENDORSES PLAN FOR PEO
Apprehension of Further Trouble at
, St. Petersburg Allayed Joint Com
mission to Investigate Causes of
Discontent Among Workmen.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 13. The news
that Emperor Nicholas has endorsed
me scnemc ior tne revival 01 me
zemBky zeabor, or ancient land par
liament, which tho old emperors con
voked In times of stress, has spread
through the city and created Intense
satisfaction among the libera classes.
The newspapers are filled with ar
ticles descriptive of this ancient Rus
sian Institution. Indlcatlnc that word
had gone forth that the government '
had decided to listen to the voice of I
representatives of the people. Nat-
urally there Is some skepticism as to
whether the government intends
frankly to take the step, but tho gen
eral verdict Is that 'if tho emperor
has succeeded in shaking off rcac-
tionary influences and now proceeds
in good faith to summon the zemsky
zeabor, ho will rally to his support
the moderate liberals and perhaps
arouse n wave of genuine enthusiasm
In tho country. Liberals aro con
vinced that a meeting of such a con
servative body must be followed by
The anticipated renewal of trouble
among the workmen was not realized.
Neither strikers nor students made
the slightest attempt to demonstrate
and throughout the day the city pre
sented a normal appearance. The em
peror's creation of a Joint commission
of masters and workmen, chosen by
themselves, to Investigate the causes
of discontent among laborers, has
made an exceedingly good Impression,
being considered definite evidence of
the government's purpose to compel
some of the rapacious masters who
have paid starvation wages to do jus
tice to their employes.
At the Mall theater a scene was
created by cries of "Down with tho
autocracy" and personal abuse of the
emperor. The demonstrators wero
ejected from the theater. The police
continue to make arrests.
Situation in Poland Is Acute.
Warsaw, Feb. 13. Private tele
grams received from Dombrova say
that all the factories there are closed.
Thirty thousand wagonloads of ore are
standing on the railway tracks and
the entire freight traffic of the Vis
tula line must be suspended unless
the wagons are removed. The coal
supply is the most urgent question In
Warsaw since the Sosnovlce strike be
gan. Governor General Tchertkoft
received a telegram from Emperor
Nicholas permitting him to import
coal free or duty from Silesia for a
fortnight, and orders wore immediate
ly dispatched to Sileslan mines. A
telephone message received from
Lodz says all Is quiet there, but man
ufacturers are convinced thnt the
strikers have no Intention to return
to work today.
Japs Will Know No Neutrals.
Toklo. Feb. 15. In discussing a re
port that colliers had refused to ac
company the second Russian Pacific
squadron on Its way north, a mem
bcr of the Japanese naval staff said:
"Our commanders will fire upon and
sink any colliers found In company
with the Russian warships, regard
less of nationality."
HOCH MAY BE "JAKE" HOFFMAN.
Police Inclined to Believe He Was
Janitor of the Holmes Building.
Chicago. Feb. 15. The police put
more faith in a theory that Johann
Hoch Is Identical with "Jake" Hoff
man, janitor of the flat building owned
by the wholesale murderer. H. II.
Holmes, in 1893. There are persons
who now positively identify Hoch as
Hoffman. Police Inspector Shlppy
obtained the names of several others
who knew Hoffman and who will be
asked to say whether Hoffman and
Hoch are one.
Hitherto doubt has been cast upon
the assertions that Hoch and Hoff
man were Identical because of a be
lief that Hoch did not arrive In this
country until 1895. Seemingly, how
ever, Iloch's own statement Is all the
police have for this. They have to
the contrary the statement of a furnl
ture dealer here who declares he sold
Hoch furniture In 1S9MS92.
Ladrones Hard Pressed by Troops.
Manila. Feb. 13. The band of la-
drones which attacked the town or
San Francisco de la Malabon Jan. 24

dren of former Governor Trias Is be
ing hard pressed by a troop of cavalry,
under Major F. W. Sibley. T-y

children, whom they wero holding for
Mobile Is Burning.
Mobile, Ala., Feb. 13. Fire, whlck

building and is now threatening much
other property. The loss already hat
reached moro than $1,000,000. The
Battle house was one of the largest
hotels in the south.
TRADE REVIEW FOR THE WEEK.
Cprlrg Jobbing Begins to Expand and
All Factories Are Busy,
New York, Feb 11. Bradatreef
says: Spring jobbing has at last be
gun to expand and reports of improve
ment come from the west, northwest
and far west, this despite severe win
ter weather, which, In the case of tho
south, operated to check the develop
ment noted last week. Dry goods,
shoes, groceries, hardware, milllnersr
a-d lumber at wholesale have ail soli
beiier of late.-and certainly in larger
volume than at this date a year ago.
which latter period, however, saw
somewhat of a halt occurring.
Industry remains as active as here
tofore and the Iron trade confirms the
best reports heretofore made In sta
tistics, showing production and con
sumption the heaviest ever recorded.
Collections are still a subject of com
plaint, apparently feeling tho cfTcct of
weather conditions, dulling retail dis
tribution, which In a few lines, how
ever, such as shoes, rubbers ani
heavy wear goods, has been favored
by the Inclement weather. Money la
still phenomenally easy and a tempo
rary check to the heavy outgo of gol
Is noted. Some benefits from climatic
conditions are noted, likewise some
drawbacks. Anthracite coal demand
has been stimulated at the east an
prices are very firm. The west has
taken more freely of bituminous
grades, which aro reported In rather
better supply there. The labor situa
tion Is on the whole favorable, but tho
perennial unrest in the New York
building trades is again manifest:!:
Itself, with great possibilities for fut
ure trouble. The general undertone Is
still one of undiminished confidence
In a larger trade when the winter
grip is finally broken and milder
weather arrives. Reports to Brad
street's Indicate & gain of 6 per cent
In the gross receipts of railroad
over the same month last year.
Failures for the week number 207.
