Wi and G The shoe house of Ferriss cH: Lapham has won the ill will of would-be competitors in business, and the good will of the people in general. The former is necessarily involved in the latter. If other houses here could compete with us they would have no ill-will for us. If other houses here could com- pete with us, would not always have tin-lion's share ot the trade. The fact is lhat the people know they can get better goods for less money of us than they can get inferior goods Tor elsewhere. Hence the steady stream of shoe buyers is always toward Ferriss Lapham's. There are a variety ol reasons why the smaller houses cannot compete with us. First of all we are furnished direct from the great Chicago wholesale house of L. L. Ferriss Co., which more shoes in one: year than all the shoe dealers of Decatur can handle in ten. The heavy purchases are made direct from the factories and the middleman's profit is saved. In thus having the advantage of purchases in large quantities, we own our goods at very much lower figures, But you know that otlu-r dealers buy their goods in limited quan- tities of jobbers, lhat they then pay an extra profit to middle- men in addition to the increased price which they must pay on account of small purchases. It is thus apparent that Ferriss Lapham can sell goods at a profit and still sell them for as little money as other dealers pay for their goods. We are sensible of all these advantages and propose that our customers shall have the benefit of them. We know that all we have to do is to go on selling at our present low prices to bring to us a constantly increasing trade. We know that other dealers will endeavor to keep up with the procession by selling shoddy goods at we ask for good solid goods. We know that the dealer, in shoddy goods will hear from them, that the sale of shodd> will drive customers to us. We know that we are selling for a much smaller profit than has hitherto been aski-d lor believe that other dealers cannot us. We have no old odds ami ends. Our slock is incompar- ably the largest, our styles and omplfle. We are sure to please you both in quality and price. 11 yon have not yet traded with us, tr> it. will save you money. moinl In OKCATIIK PkHi'vroi.

Tlie isyments ware made by Comptroller Durham at the time that Mr. Lamar secretary ot the interior. The vouchers were tor surveying done in California and Utah. Under the law, where sur- veying is done at the request of land owners they are required to deposit a certain sum and when the vouchers of the deputy surveyors are received they pass through the survey division and accounts division and then the comrais sioner certifies to the treasury depart- ment that they are correct, and that the money for the payment of them has been deposited as required by law. In the cases In California and Utah no deposit was made, and Commis- sioner Sparks refused to certify the vouchers, which aggregated There was a controversy between the treasury department and the Interior department about the matter and it was even laid be- fore the president ut one time and by him referred to the attorney general. Comptroller Durham insisted that the commissioner should certify to these vouchers. The attorneys of the parties in interest having made argu- ment before him, the commissioner re fused to certify them, but nevertheless, it iw claimed against the ruling of the at- torney general they were ordered paid by the comptroller. Fletcher Johnston, the flilef of tho amounts division, prepared a tabulated statement of the matter which was referred to Her-retary Vilas by Secretary Latmir on the day that the hitler left thu inteiior department. Nothing WIIH lieanl from it, imd in June last on going out of ortlce, Johnston again called it to Hie attention of Ilie commissioner. Mr. Stookslager, the new chief of the accounts division, haw had the matter under consideration, and today he finished the preparation of u detailed statement of the facia which Acting Commissioner Stone will la> he- fore the secretary of the interior.

This will be the first formal proposition of any kind made to the men since the mines were closed down on the 30th of April. It a the general opinion that the miners will not accept the offer, or at least nof until their fel- low miners at Streator have settled their grievances. SPORTING EVENTS. How They Stand.

The march was made in front of the grand stand and to tlie east side, where the speakers' stand was located. The camps came to present arms and the old vets marched to their seats. Comrade J. A. Brown presided and after prayer by Comrade Chaplain E. Hammond and music by the band, Gov.

During the whole time they gave careful attention and frequently demonstrated their appreciation of facts he set forth by fervent applause. After this address everybody enjoyed a picnic dinner. At 2 o'clock the crowd again assembled and after the customary prelude of song and instrumental music, Maj. James A. Connolly was introduced and delivered an excellent address, which was also highly appreciated. Everybody went home fully satisfied with the grand success of the reunions About people were in attendance. We have attended a great many reun- ions and are prepared to judge of ar- rangement and manner of procedure, and from what we observed at Bethany it ia but fair to say that nobody can beat the people of Bethany having a good time and a protllable reunion.
