Stunning New Coals for Your
O , C,V -' .
. Monday Seleclioii
There luis Iwon such' a steady and con
stantly increasing demand for coats from Ben
son & Thome's that we liavo eommenced each
new week with jiractieally n new stock.
The reasons for this increasing popularity
are readily apparent to careful buyers,
(tood service, which is obtained in double
measure in the new reversible coats, has
brought back the purchasers of former seasoiis,
together with their friends, eager to procure
coats of the style and quality which character
ize our garments.
The prices are so moderately proportioned
to the quality that cost is invariably a minor
factor in n purchase hero.
These cardinal features, together with n
variety so largo that even your most exacting
requirements can be easily met, make this the
one place to select your winter wrap.
Junior and small women's sizes.

NEW C.OVKHMK.T EFFECTIVE

la Almost Perfect.
SHANGHAI, Nov. 4.-The new revo
lutionary government which Is apparently
Impersonal, nevertheless, effectively eon
trolled the situation In Shanghai, and ou
the Tang-Te delta today.
8lr.ee morning the rebel cause has been
strengthened by, the arming of all those
who applied for rifles and ammunition.
The rebel obtained not only the arsenal
but the .powder factory, gunboats, and
an enormous supply of new and first
tlui Mauser rlflts. Fully 10,000 rifles
were given Indiscriminately to applicants
The forts at Wu-Biuig went over to the
rebels without resistance, end the- other-tip-elver
forts hoisted the white flag as
if through a previous understanding with
the rebel commander.
The revolutionists can hardly be said
to have "seised" Shanghai, Wu-Bung,
and the other up-river forts. It was
simply a change of control In which
practically everyone acquiesced. About
ten persons were killed and twenty o'heri
Injured, but most of the caaualltles were
accidental, due to the explosion of dyna
mite used to open the gates of the cities,
which bad been practically closed.
The arsenal at Shanghai has a capacity
for a great output, and Is now completely
manned and Is being operated. It can
manufacture R0, 000 cartridges dally. The
powder factory, which Is the largest In
China, Is well stocked. Admiral Kali's
iquadron has depended entirely on this
arsenal and powder factory for supplies.
Forelsners Sot Disturbed.
t'p to 6 o'clock tonight there had not
beer, a single case of disturbance within
the foreign settlement. Many foreigners
vlnjted the arsenal, everywhere they were
treated with the utmost courtesy.
' The foreign troops which had been
guarding the railway station of the Nanking-Shanghai
railway continued on duty
there today on the order of the Crltlsh
consul. This action continues to cause
not only comment as being contrary to
the policy of foreign neutrality, but ap
prehension lent the rebels Interpret

"There have undoubtedly been Instances
In which Judge Kstelle'a rulings have
sustained the contentions of corporations,
and even of criminals; but he has shown
no unwillingness to rule against them.
Each party to an action has some rights
that the court should protect. John Mar

judiciary, made a very unpopular ruling
when he saved tho life of Aaron lKirr,
whom the whole country believed to be
a traitor. Roger II. Taney called' down
upon himself the execration of many good

their credibility was for the Jury to de

Rest Makes Michigan's
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 4. Out
played for three quarters of the game
and outweighed by many pounds, the
Syracuse university foot ball eleven, In
the final quarter of today's struggle
with Michigan, uncorked a forward pass
that ultimately resulted In a touchdown
and enabled the easterners to tie Michi
gan, 6 to 6, after apparently being hope
lessly outclassed and beaten. Right
Tackle Trobst Is the hero of the unex
pected tie which Syracuse regards as a
victory. Grabbing the ball from Fogg
on Syracuse's forty-five-yard line, he
dashed along the south end of the grid
iron, dodged one man, straight armed an
other and never stopped until Plcard and
Well brought him to earth on Michigan's
two-yard line. Fogg immediately plunged
through tackle for a touchdown. Day
quickly kicked goal.
Michigan's only touchdown came In the
flrat quarter on a line buck by Thomp
son. Bogle kicked goal. - . , ,

Dog Fight Feature
of Society Night at
St, Louis Horse Show
ST. IrOUIS, Mo.. Nov. 4. Society night
at the St. Louis Horse show, which
brought out the largest attendance that
ever has witnessed an equine display In
the Coliseum, was enlivened by a dog
fight. Miss Loula Long's Boston terrier
Vanity has on previous nights at the
show contented Itself with merely chal
lenging, while riding beside Its mlHtress,
other dogs In the ring. The sight of
Adolphus Busch's Dalmatian, trotting
serenely between the rear wheels of his
turnout In the pairs In harness and high
stepper class, was more than Vanity
could stand, and she made for the coach
dog, and a 'lively engagement ensued, re
quiring the efforts of three ring at
tendants to separate the combatants.
As on previous nights, out-of-town ex
hibitors shared liberally In awards. In
the roadsters' pairs, with appointment
class. Tommy Doyle and Tommy Piper,
owned by J. R. Peak & Son of Winches
ter, 111., were awarded the blue ribbon.
Lady Jeannette and Mate, also owned
by the Peak firm, were second, and Ryth
Maid and Colonel, owned by MUs Anne
Beyerly of Columbus, O., third. '
Miss Loula Long of Kansas City got
flrat place with Revelation and Hesita
tion In the pairs In harness, with ap
pointments, high stepper class. Royal
and Regent, owned by Adolphus Busch
III, were second, and the Senator and

"I.oslc never wms Mr. Piyan's strong
o!nt. If tl nruat Ma.K ilty of the ro
publlcon ia:y tire prnsrerlve. as Mr.
I'ryan believes, why shou'J thev leave
a parly which th"y cn cmtrol nnd at
lacli themselves to n I'irty wh!"h neither
he nor they cc:i control? ThT is a
primary election in the sprlnT. At that
time the people themselves will select
their Tarty candidates.. If the republican
progressives arc in the majority, thev
will relect progressive candidates, and
there are enough republicans In Ne
brnrka to elect them. Why then should
they di?slpnte their strength and wander
away after strange Gods?
Minn Id Prepare for 1012.
' It Is urged, however, that the election
of tha present etate ticket will be an
endorsement of the president and his
administration, and therefore progressive
republicans should vote the democrndo
ticket and so rebuke Mr. Taft. If pro
gressiva republicans desert the state
ticket this year, how will they elect their
candidates next year In case they nomi
nate them? Will the democrats help
them? It will take all the republicans
to elect the state ticket this year, and
It will take all tho republicans to carry
the state for next year. If the ranks
cloee up this year, there will be , no
faltering In the fight next year.
"As a matter of fact, the election of the
republican state ticket this fall will be ne
Indication of the outcome within the
party next spring. By common consent,
all elements of tha party , are united In
support of the republican candidates In
this election, with the understanding
that next year's differences of opinion
are to be settled next year, and the
present state ticket Is to be elected this
year. Acting upon that understanding,
the leaders of the progressive movement
are doing splendid service, and they will
have their full share of the credit for
the splendid victory ao near at hand.
"It has been said too that the repub
lican state committee Is a Taft committee,
and that It will be organized for Presi
dent Taft when this election Is over. The
committee will not be organized or used
prior to the primaries for any candidate
neither for Taft nor La Follette. When
the republicans by popular vote have ee,
lected their candidates, then the commit
tee will organize and elect them. In the
primary contest the files and records of
the committee will be open and equally
available to all republicans, and there will
be no discrimination between them.
' "The committeo was selected In the laflt
state convention by senatorial districts.
It represents the whole republican party,
and not a part of It. It knows no dif
ference or distinction between republicans
holding different views or preferences for
United States senator or president. We
are all republicans, and as such are mov
ing forward to a great victory this year,
and to a still greater victory next year.
In those victories there will be glory
enough for every element of the party.
