The trade term is camel's-hair merino, because this house uses the softest and most luxurious camel's-hair in mixture with wool or silk at its factory.

To quickly end the neckwear more of it is marked to 25c yet nobody could see the use of reducing it. To get three, four or five times your money's worth should be enough. Plenty of the collars and cuffs collars started at 6 for 30c ; 40c cuffs are 25c ; the finest collars are just half price. Isn't that all you care to know about it? The 6-for-30c collars include as well odd and soiled lots from our own stock. WALKING SKIRTS Your walking skirt must set as though it were tailored for you then it is fine; otherwise, a fright. Be you broad or narrow, the skirt must be so cut that it will be perfectly even around the foot.

When applied to a piano purchaser it is still useful, as your Piano is a part of your household. Many buyers rush out in haste to get a piano without considering its real merits. We would suggest first of all ascertain where the piano you are about purchasing was made. If mapu-factured along the banks of a river or on marshy grounds the action and keys will in time become loose and rattling. Cheap out of town factory sites are usually selected for economy's sake, but Pianos made after that fashion, whether in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Massachusetts will in time prove a poor investment. Our Factories at 1249-51-53-55 N. 27th and 2623-25-27-29-31-33-35-37 Stiles Streets, were especially selected for their high and dry positions. We manufacture as a piano as is made in this country, and our standing offer of $10,000.00 for a better Instrument was made years ago and is now more prominent than ever before. Notwithstanding the above facts, our prices are less than is usually asked for very inferior pianos. We will sell you on easy trrm if you so desire.

THE CUNNINGHAM PIANO 1 105 Chestnut Street. co. SPECIAL COMMISSION MAY BE SENT TO CHINA Acting State Secretary Hill, Ex-Senator Edmunds, of Vermont, and John W. Foster May Constitute Its Membership Special to The Inquirer. THE INQUIRER BCREAtT. 1410-12 G Street. N. W. WASHINGTON, Sept. G. President McKinley is seriously considering the appointment of a commission to go to China and act for the United States in ascertaining the extent of the responsibility of the Chinese Government for the attempts to destroy the foreign legations in Pekin and for the killing of foreigners and the destruction of property. The proposed commission will also act in fixing indemnity and in bringing about a restoration of .1 stable government. The need of a commission is said to have been brought to the front by the intended recall cf W. W. Rockhill, the special envoy sent by the President, who is alleged to have so far forgotten his position as to have declared that the blame for the entire siege of the legations rests upon the Empress Dowager. It was discussed fully at the last Cabinet meeting, according to an official, and it was the opinion of the authorities that no report which Mr. Rockhill might write fixing the responsibility for the outrages could carry the slightest weight, since he is reported as having publicly expressed his convictions even before he reached Pekin. While the firm denial made officially by Mr. Rockhill may have the effect of clearing him of the charges, the authorities are inclined to believe that he was at fault. They declare that his usefulness has been impaired, and they favor a commission. Already, it is understood, Acting Secre-try Hill, of the State Department, has been asked to head the proposed commission. The other members decided upon, according to the report, are ex-Senator Edmunds, of Vermont, and John W. Foster, ex-Secretary of State. The commission, in the event of the threatened trouble between Russia and the other powers in regard to continued occupation of Pekin, will be instructed, according to a State Department official, to demand that United States trocjw, which may be withdrawn to Tien Tsin, are to remain on Chinese soil by stipulation and not as invaders. It will also be demanded that sruarantees be given against the recurrence of the outrages, and that assurances be given of order and protection for foreigners throughout the provinces of the empire. Reparation by indemnity will be arranged for the injuries to foreigners and their property. c. W. c. LATEST PEKIN CABLES VERY CHEERFUL IN" TONE War Department Makes Public Those From Chaffee and Barry WASHINGTON, Sept. 6. The War Department to-day received the following cablegrams from China: "TAKU, China (no date). "Adjutant-General, Washington : "PEKIN, 28. The officers and soldiers of the China relief expedition send thanks to the President and Secretary of War for their messages of congratulation. Formal entry of the palace grounds was made today at 8 o'clock, a salute of twenty-one guns being fired at the south and north gates. Troops of all nations participated. The United State wu represented by a bat- talion 350 strong, composed of details from each organization present at taking of city. The palace was vacant, with the exception of about 30O servants. '"General Barry leaves for Manila today. The Danish cable, Shanghai to Xaku, is open for business. We can connect with our wire. CHAFFEE." "TAKU, China (no date). "Adjutant-General, Washington : "All -quiet in Pekin. Supplies have been promptly unloaded. They will be forwarded when dispositions are determined. All supplies have been received. "The troops will be provided with comfortables in the winter. There has been no communication with Chinese officials after August LS. "James H. Wilson, brigadier-general of Volunteers, goes to Pekin to-night. Rockhill is at Shanghai.-- - "Telegraphic communication with Pekin and Tjien Tain ia bad. The extreme heat is ended. All conditions are satisfactory. I go to Nagasaki to-morrow and will take the first transport to Manila. BARRY." General Barry goes to Manila to assume the duties of chief of staff to General MacArthur. The State Department also made the following announcement to-day: "A telegram has been received from Minister Conger dated Pekin, September 1, stating that a military parade passed through the imperial palace on that day and that eunuchs and servants were the only occupants." MARINES WITHDRAWN FROM PORT OF AM0Y Peaceful Condition of Southern China Made Such Action Advisable Special to The Inquirer. WASHINGTON, Sept. 6. As a result of the supression of the disorders which occurred at Amojv and the probability of the Viceroy of the province being able to prevent a recurrence, the Japanese and British governments have taken steps to withdraw their marines from that point. Acting Secretary Hill made this statement to-day: "A telegram from Consul General Goodnow announces the simultaneous withdrawal of all marines from Amoy on Friday." The authorities are very much gratified over the return of peace at Amoy, not only because it brought about the withdrawal of marines but because it demonstrated the purpose of the southern viceroys to stand by their promises and maintain order in Southern China. FRANCE THE ONLY NATION TO INDORSE RUSSIAN PLAN I All Others Believe That Troops Should Not Leave Pekin WASHINGTON, Stpt. 6. The latest expression as to the attitude, of the powers on the evacuation of Pekin comes from the United States Ambassador at Paris, General Horace Porter, who has advNed the c.nthorities here that the attitude of the French Government is favorable to the position taken by Russia. Almcst simultaneously with this dispatch from General Porter came another from the' American Charge d'Affaires at Berlin, giving the attitude of Germany on Russia's proposal. This, in substance, states that Germany, while anxious to avoid any friction between the powers, regards the conditions at Pekin such as to require the continued presence of German forces there. Neither General Porter nor Mr. Jackson gives the- text of the answers, but only the substance of the positions taken by the two eovernments. Thee two highlv important communications bring the Chinese negotiations to a" very advanced stage, though they are not yet concluded, as all of the answers are not yet in. The German and French answers, however, clearly indicate the alignment of the powers. It is generally accepted that Germany's attitude in favor of remaining at Pekin will be concurred in by Italy and Austria, as these two countries act with Germany on political questions of a general nature. As to the purposes of Great Britain, there is an absolute lack of official information, though httle doubt is entertained that since Germany has taki.i the initiative, Great Britain will follow suit in favor of remaining at Pekin. The position of Japan likewise is lacking in definiteness, although it is believed in the best posted quarters that if other nations remain at Pekin Japan will deem it expedient to remain there also. It would seem from this that France is the only government to give concurrence to the Russian proposition. German Troops Land at Shanghai SHANGHAI, Sept. 6.-The first battalion of German troops landed here tolay from the steamer Batavia. The foreign Consuls and detachments of French and Russian troops received them and escorted them to camp, the bands playing German airs. DETECTIVE MAKES IMPORTANT ARREST Police Think They Have Man Who Has Robbed Prothonotary Special to The Inquirer. HAKRISBUKO, Pa.. Sept. 6. Detective Walters to-night arrested Charles Brijrht-bill in Prothonotary Diffenlerfers office, in the Court House. Money has been missed for six months, but no clue to the thief could be obtained. Not less than $400- was taken. County Detective Walters was notified -and to-night concealed himself in the efflce. He had not long to wait. Urijrhtbill. it is said, entered through the front door and, unlocking- the door to the office of the Prothonotary, at once went to the money drawee. He tried to escape when Detective Walters approached him and managed to get into Court avenue, where a couple of shots from a revolver brought him to bay. He was taken to the county prison and held for trial. Several hundred persons witnessed the arrest, attracted by the shots of the officer.
