Correct Fall Clothes for Well
Wide is the gulf between "wearing costly clothes"
and "being smartly dressed." One is merely a circum
stance of dollars and cents the other an intelligent selec
tion of correct clothes, well adapted to express the sort
of a man one aims to be providing his aim is to be a well
dressed gentleman. The difference in price is, for the
most part a question of the quality of cloth and how
much handwork enters into the construction of the gar
ment. All our suits are wool to the last strand even the cheapest.

careful In getting correct weights as If
they were measuring gold. It is non

they are given grades of No. S and 4 on
grain which would be graded No. S for
the regulars. The men who make such
statements are aware that they can ap

pretty musical comedy was a success in
Omaha last season and comes again with

"Do you want a better, cheaper and more
extended telephone service In Omaha?"
said T. H. Pollock, one of the promoters
of the new company. "There will be a
proposition submitted to the mayor and
city council of Omaha within the next few
days asking that an Independent tele
phone franchise be passed by the council
and submitted to the voters of Omaha, to
say whether or not the citizens of Omaha
shall enjoy the benefits of telephone competition.
"The Independent telephone franchise will
provide for a reduction of from 25 to 35
per cent from existing telephone rentals in
"It will provide for the constructing of a
modem, first-class telephone system In
Omaha and South Omaha.
It will provide for free service from
Omaha to South Omaha. What does this
free service mean to the average business
man? An Omaha business man must pay
now $7 per month, or $&4 per year, for a
business telephone on the Omaha exchange.
In addition to this rate he must pay S
cents for every conversation with a sub
scriber on the South Omaha exchange.

Saving- to Be Effected.
'By rates already provided In the South
Omaha Independent franchise, the business
man there would gat one telephone for
$3.M per month and have the free use of
the Omaha exchange, which would be a
saving of 810.50 per month, or $12 per
year. The Omaha business man can save
the difference between the present rate of
the Bell company, 884 per year, and the
Independent rate, which will be 854 per
year, and In addition get' free service to
South Omaha. Now, If the Bell 'monopoly'
can satisfy you that you are not being
overcharged, don't ask your councilman to
support the independent telephone fran
chise. "In addition to lowering rates, we will
erect one main exchange building In the
business district of Omaha, one subex
change building In some part of the resi
dence district and one exchange building
In South Omaha. These buildings will all
be handsome and commodious fireproof
buildings and will mean the outlay of at
least $150,000. The amount that will be ex
pended, In case we are permitted to spend
our money In your city, will be in the
neighborhood of 81.500,000, which will mean
that hundreds of laboring men, mechanics
and contractors will find employment.

trade excursions in this same territory,
where are located these 100,000 Independent
telephone users, soliciting their business
for the Omaha Jobbing houses, banks and
merchants generally. Did you ever stop to
think that these same men whom you are
asking to patronize you own telephone sys

are receiving letters dally from all parts of
the state soliciting the Influence of these
Jobbers and bankers to demand the passage
of the Independent telephone franchise, and
there la no good reason why the indepen

granted. The only opposition to It is from
the Bell company, who, of course, wants
to prolong Its monopoly of the telephone
business In Omaha.
"Boost for Omaha! Boost along the Inde

never have cause to regret It."

MAYOR GLAD EDQUIST IS OUT
Frank K. Moorei Finds Consolation
la Defeat of Man He Boosted
"There Is one thing In the result of the
primary that gives me more satisfaction
than anything else," said Mayor Moores.
"It goes to show that the whirligig of time
often brings retribution In Its wake. A
number of years ago not long before a full
county campaign the matter was mentioned
In republican councils that It would be a
good thing to have a man of Swedish na
tionality on the ticket to strengthen Its ap
peal to the general mass of voters. I went
up to the city engineer's office where P. E.
Edqulst was working at the time and
brought him down to my office. I asked
him if he would care to be county sur
veyor. He replied that he would, but that
he did not think he could he nominated
or elected. I took him to see other repub
lican leaders, after he had promised to
work hard for himself and the ticket If
nominated. The result was that he was
nominated and elected, and this not only
once, but twice.
"During my last campaign. In the spring
of 1908, Edqulst went throtigh the city en
gineer's office and urged his old acquaint
ances there to vote for Benson for mayor
on the ground that I could not be elected
and that this was the only way to keep
out a democrat. Apparently the county
surveyor forgot any debt of gratitude that
he may have owed to me.
"It Is now to be noted that he was de
feated for renominatlon and Is down and
out a dead duck politically."
