An animated dnbato aroau upon the
adoption of this rupart
Ono or two of these present con-
ton'Jod that they believed the nonet
of the previous mooting WAS that the
election of delegates chnuld take
place at a meeting and not by the dif
ferent elements of labor. But when
the question of adoption was put , it
wai carried unanimously , not one
disBtiuting hand being roiiod , which
showed conclusively that the meeting
endorses the action of the committou.
The meeting , which soon after ad
journed , was very well attended , there
buing at least three or four times ai
many prevent us on nny previous oc-
caiion , with a fair sprinkling of farm
ers among the rest ,
Ttio PJro Near the Qoa Worta Hun-
day Evening.
About 4 o'clock yuatorday afternoon
there was an alarm of tire sounded ,
Tlio boll struck box 12 , but u telephone -
phone message which came in at the
same time located the fire at the gat
works , The department turned out
promptly and dashed down Farnam
and Thirteenth streets as if thcro wai
no such thing as mud knovrn.
The smoke was rolling up in verj
promising ehapo In the direction ol
the gai norks , aud the report thai thai
place was on fire drew a largo crowd ,
and the umbrellas wcro BO thick tlmt
the flits on Twelfth and Lcavenwoitli
loyked like an army of marching mush
rooms was passing over them. The
fire proceededfrotnu email two-roomed

a ow of small houses on the neat side
of Twelfth afreet belonging to Byron

Mra. Adama , a colored woman , whose
husband worka at the smelting worlso
and who was preparing to go nvray on
a visit last night. Her neighbor wae
Mrn. DC tor , and Mrs. Adams waa oul
with her attending to the rain watoi
barrels back of the house. While
thuj employed , Mr. Wood , a neighbor ,
cilled acroan the creek to them thai
the house was on firo. Mrs. Deter ai
once 8iizad a bucket and began trjin
to quench the Ihmes but they hoc
gotten too hi : ; n tart. On the arrival
of the dcptrtmont two streams wore
soon got on the fire from the hy
drant on Thirteenth and Jones anc
the Ihimea wcro noon quenched ,
though not until thohouao was entire
ly unroofed and unfit to bo occupied
The fire originated from the stove
which ajt near the wall , and had c
very hot fire in it during the af teruoon
it caught in the wall and spread up tc
the celling BO rapidly us to defy al
cH'urtti to nave the building. The losi

Mrs. Adamn and Mra. Dotei both gel
the furniture out of their house , and
they probably lese nothing except
time and the trouble over the affair.

It has been the constant practice in
Omaha , its well ao elsewhere , to sol ! n
few low priced Cloaks at cost or even
leas , as "leaders" for the purpoao ot
idvortising , and then make up the
average profit on the better grades.
Thia year we have determined to re
verse this order , and knock the bottom
tom out of hii > h priced Cloaks , and
thus , aa ono of our competitors said ,
"ruin tlio whole buninesa. "

M Inch wo will not aell for less than

ruin the business , but to look
to our own interests. It take ;
uo no longer to sell n cloak foi
$50.00 than it does to tioll one at
$5.00 , and unless \ro sell thu lint
cloak for lean than othcrn people are
apt to buy at * ho largest store ; lionet
if wo make but a very small profit on
a cloak we look upon it as just HU
much gain , an wa have no extra , ex
pense connected with it and no heavy
rent to pay. We have made a specialty
of fmo cloaks this fall , and have
bought Iho finest that money cau buy
a very large assortment and mean
business. Call and aoe them. , It will
pay you , at Bushman's , southeast cor

country , and if not satisfactory it can
be returned at our expense.
