The extraordinary low prices at which
we sell these garments will undoubtedly
cause a lot of comment among the

tion arises. "How do they do It?" We shall
only give away one little secret, and that
Is, "Cash." We believe we are correct in
saying we are the only Dry Goods store in
Omaha doing a strictly cash business. We

spending money before it Is earned Is a baU
business, and no store doing a credit busi
ness can sell as cheap as we do.

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 5. The life rafts
which drifted ashore at Waddell creek, on
the coast north of Santa Crus and whlcn
were supposed to have come from the Pa
ciflo Mall liner City of Panama, were In
spected this afternoon by a representative
of the Pacific Mall Steamship company
and Identified aa belonging to that steamer.
The finding of the rafts with casks of wKer
and crackers laat night, caused serious ap
prehension here that the City of Panama
had foundered at sea, and 'during the day
conflicting reports were received that a
steamer could be seen on the rocks near
Pigeon Point. All day long people from
Bant Crus and newspaper men from this
city have scanned the sea In that vicinity
with the aid of strong glasses. ' Late this
evening a report waa received that the
lighthouse keeper at Pigeon Point atated
that there la no steamer on the rocks in
that vicinity; In fact, that there are no
rocks where the vessel was reported to
have been seen.
The theory Is gaining ground that ' the
life rafts were washed overboard from the
City of Panama by a blgh sea. Thla la
strengthened by the fact that it Is known
that the learner encountered strong gales
and heavy aces after leaving this port
last Monday afternoon.

The life rafts, which are carried on the

and when boarded by seas several hours

the rafts were easily carried away.
Aa to the presence of water and some
provisions on the rafts, it Is explained that
the law requires that rafts and lifeboats
on steamers must always have these aboard
In order to be ready for Instant launching.
At the office of the Pacific Mall no fears
are entertained for the safety of the liner.
R. P. Schwerln, general manager of the
company, believes that the rafts were
washed overboard during the gale that
blew when the steamer sailed, and stated
that he expected to hear of Its arrival at
Masatlan tomorrow or Monday.
Mr. Schwerln pointed out that the cap

WASHINGTON, Jan. 8. (Special Telegrams-Colonel
W. H. Michael, consul gen

a sixty days' leave.
Colonel Michael, who waa appointed from
Nebraska, but who Is not credited to thot
sute because of thelflght made against
such credit by ' Senator Burkett was
granted the leave asked for on October 24.
When Colonel Michael left the United

Of Ellhu Root, to take the position In the
consular service he was not In tha best of
health. He thought a change would do him
good and accepted the Calcutta' post believ
ing the change would bring back his falling
The rumor Is now current that Colonel
Michael will not return . to Calcutta, although-
no reaaon la known In the Stat
department why he should not return.
Chief Clerk Denby. Who succeeded Colonel
Michael, said today there was absolutely
no filctlon between the department and the
consul general; that his reports were ex
cellent and that the - leave asked for was
granted in the ordinary course.
A reason for the rumor that Colonel
Michael will not return to his post may be
found In the fact that under the reorgani
sation of 'the consular service bill the In
come of the Calcutta office Is cut In half
and thl?, It Is asserted leaves the pay In
sufficient for- an American to live on In
India's great metropolis.
Should, It turn out that Colonel Michael
will not go back. It Is understood the Ne
braska delegation will endeavor to hold
the place although not now credited with It.

"I noticed a man conversing with Mr.
McLear. He was talking In an excited
manner. In one hand he carried a queer
shaped article, wrapped In a newspaper.
"I said to a clerk, "That fellow's a crank

'Yes, If 1 were McLear, I would not talk
to him for a minute.' Th fellow talked
f 'I'll get that money or know why,' he
cried. 'It's coming t me.' I did not hear
what Mr. McLar answered. 'Then you
won't give It to me?' the man shouted. I
saw Mr. McLear shake l)ls head and turn
as If h was going to walk away. The
man threw th thing la th newspaper on

There was a big puff of white smoke. I
