These high quality goods had been contracted for by an eastern house but the shipment had been refused owina
to its late arrival. A spot cash offer from Brandeis bought the entire stock at far less than its value. . We never
offered anything like these magnificent values. The display of the goods in the window has attracted'thousahds
of women who have marveled at the ba'rgains. It is a sale that will be remembered for .years. -

BURLINGTON. Ia.. April 7.-(Special.)-Indlcatlons
are that the Mormon church is
again attempting to get a foothold in Nau
voo, the city from which they were driven
mere than fifty years ago. This became
known through the proceedings of the
general world convention of the Tounj
People's association ef the Reorganised
Church of Latter Day Saints Just closed at
Independence, Mo. The matter came up
In the discusalon of the proposition to hold
the next world convention at Nauvoo. The
arguments in favor of the invitation, which
had been signed by over 400 cltlsens ot
Nauvoo, were based on the fact that the
Utah church, known as the "Brighamlles"
or followers of Drigham Toung, were work
ing hard to regain the lost ground and !
that they had four or five elders there j
at work all the time. It was stated that
the Reorganized Church, which Is bitterly
oppoeed to the tenets of the Utah church,
should use their influence to keep down I
the "Mormon Invaders." It was .furtner
pointed out that the Utah body had so
cured the old Jail at Carthage, III., where
Joseph Smith was shot, and will turn It 1
Into a sort of museum of Mormonlsm which I
in time will become a shrine for visiting !
Mormons. The Latter Day Saints' body
will probably do what they can to prevent
the Utah forces from again taking the old

NAPLES, April ?. Bosco Reale has been
surrounded and invaded by lava and one
stream is closely threatening Ottajano.
New craters are opening in the volcano.
The population ot the towns and ' vil
lages near the danger zone are still panlo
stricken. Whole families surrounded by
household goods are waiting in the streets
hoping to And a part, horse or donkey to
help them place their possessions beyond
danger. Many hartrendlng scenes are wit
nessed. Artillery carts have been sent
to help the fugitives.
Cardinal Joseph Prlsco, archbishop of
Naples, has ordered special prayers to be
offered for the safety of those who are
In danger and It Is expected that he will
go to the scene of desolation. Bdsco Reale,
one of the villages In danger of destruc

TANGIER. April 7. (Special Cablegram
to Tho Bee.) If conditions do not change
for the better In the near future the people
of Morocco may find themselves confronted
by a condition of affairs more disquieting
than anything that has been considered at
Scarcity of rain and a plague of locusts
are threatening the crops, especially In
southern Morocco, and the distress is al
ready prevalent. Owing to the representa
tions of the British minister the sultan has
sent orders to the native authorities of
the coast towns to purchase and destroy
locusts' eggs. This 'should to some extent
alleviate the danger, though the orders
have been delayed too long to make the
effort really productive cf results. This
It Is believed will help In a measure, how
ever. The merchants and officials of Fes
are attempting to relieve the existing suf
fering by the distribution of foodstuffs.
The execution of this charitable work was
originally delegated to certain Maghezen
officials, but the merchants, suspecting,
apparently with good reason, that consid
erable sums never reached the poor, pro
tested and obtained the nomination of cer
tain of their class to undertake the work.

CHINA OBJECTS TO SYSTEM
All Foreign Nations Seem to Be Out

The Bee.) The JIJ1 Shlmpo's correspondent
claims that three countries, Japan, Great
Britain and the United Slates, have de
clared that to maintain the integrity of
the Chinese empire is out of harmony
with the spirit of the times in China.
Great Britain's negotiations with reference
to the railway and mining rights In Thibet
and elsewhere are net going on smoothly.
America is really not reforming Its emi
gration laws, but on the contrary Is send
ing a large force of troops to the Philip
pines. The Japanese administration , is in
constant conflict with the Chinese authori
ties In Manchuria, who boldly report to
Peking that the Japanese are "second Rus
sians." The Germans on the contrary by with
drawing their troops have undoubtedly
made a great Impression on China and the

their minister, Baron Mumm von Schwart

bassador to Jupan mean, so it is reported,
