We had it offered to us, and. we took it. This is how we got it, A large clothing manufacturer in New York had a lot of Suits they wanted to close out; they only had a few of a kind left. They asked us to put a price on them; we did. They were all brand new, this season's goods, cut in the latest styles, and Suits that would be sold for 13, $13, 914 and SIS.

BLAKE, THE GROCER, 223 South Michigan Street. IN up a little on style even 7 mti mi ir Senator Hill says he has not had time to collect his thoughts and does not know whether he will accept that tre mendously unanimous nomination. Meantime the bolters are endeavoring to gei Judge Gsynor to decline and the democratic situation in New York appears to be just about as chaotic as ever. A portrait of Premier Li IluDg Chang without his yellow jacket and three-eyed, peacock feather, makes him closely resemble a common washee man in undress uniform, with a gallon or two of water stored away in his mouth all ready to perform the sprinkling act upon an Innocent shirt bosom. Poor Li, he may come to this yet.

The Mormons wh.o were convicted of a violation of the common law of the land by maintaining a plurality of wives have received full pardon at the hands of President Cleveland on condition that they sin no more in this The Mormon church has promised to abolish polygamy. The sly Mormons will need watching, though. The New York Morning advertiser on the, democratic nominations in that state fays: "A Tammany man at one end; and an anti-Tammany man at the other with a what-is-it in the middle this is the ticket which is intended to reconcile the united and divided and demoralized democracy of the state. It is like chaos come again, and it will be more like it for the party in November." "VV Brady, the veteran photographer, of Washington, whohas taken more portraits of distinguished men than any one -living or dead, is old, crippled and suffering the pangs of poverty. Not able to keep up with unscrupulous rivals he has -met with business reverses, until in his old age he finds his cup of woe running over through the harrassment of creditors and bodily Ills.

He was a genuine artist in his younger days, and the most popular photographer in the country. He began- taking pictures in 1846, and has among his collection of negatives the faces jof all the noted men of America from that date down to within a few years ago. Lincoln said that Brady's picture made him president. The campaign by the republicans in Ohio was opened in grand style at Find lay, yesterday, with McKinley as the orator of the occasion. Findlay is one of the great manufacturing centers of the state and manufacturers and em-employes vied with one another in do ing honor to the favorite son of Ohio, and to the cause of protection.

All marched under the same banners and there was enthusiasm on every hand. Such; a demonstration was never seen in' the town which owes is prosperity to republicanism. A few years ago it was a struggling village, but with the stim lus of a protective tariff and the discov ery of natural gas, it engaged 1st manu facturing enterprises which made it a city of 25,000 lively inhabitants. Dem ocratic misrule and tariff tinkering, however, gave the place a black eye, threw men but of employment, closed many -of the great industries and reduced the wages of men employed in those struggling against odds to main tain an existence. It is no wonder that the Fmdlay ites came out In such force yesterday to welcome McKinley and rebuke UNIVERSITY EXTENSION CENTRE.

President Chaffee's Inauguration Resolu tlons'on Mr. McLennan' Retirement, The University Extension centre met with the new president, Rev. A. B. Chaffee, in the Y.

M. C. A. parlors Wednesday evening. The president's address showed an interest in the work that convinced every one present the work would not suffer for want Of an able leader.

Prof. Bogue was present and reported a large number of tickets taken! at Mishawaka. Arrangements will be made with the Street Car Com panyfor, special cars on the lecture evenings. The following resolution on the removal of the former able and honored president, Rev. W.

E. McLen nan, was unanimously adopted, ordered spread upon the records, to be published in the Literary Bulletin and the daily papers, and a copy sent to Mr. McLennan: Resolved, That the South Bend Uni versity Extension centre accepts with Profound sorrow the resignation of W. E. McLennan as a member and president of this centre.

While all the officers: and members have been zealous, yet we feel that to Mr. McLennan is largely due the present successful outcome of the organization. His efforts in behalf of the centre, and its publication, the Literary Bulletin, have been untiring and well directed. His heart has been in the work because it beats strongest for those we aim to reach and benefit. We wish him God speed in leaving, congratulate the community where he may settle, and while with; pleasure remembering his past shall be ever interested in him as a man and his work.

Will Undoubtedly Go to Berwyav In the proceedings of the Rock River, Illinois, M. E. conference it is stated that a targe committee from the church at Berwyn.lllinois, asked for Rev.W. E. McLennan, late of this city, as their pastor, and he will undoubtedly be sent there, Ber wy Is a pleasant sub urb of Chicago, about eight miles out, and church' there is a large and flourishing one.

Children Cry for It Is la a Bad Condition Through Negli gence en the City Council's Part. The committee on cemetery submit ted a lengthy report at the regular meeting of the common council Monday night, setting forth the bad condition of the city cemetery in which it was represented that the fences were in a dilapidated state, that the sacred resting place of our loved ones was often turned into a pleasure park by merry-makers, and that the place for keeping the records was wholly inade quate and Insecure for such purpose. It was further reported by the committee that a great deal of tbievirg was going on in the cemetery, even lot stakes be ing pulled up and carried away pre Sumably firewocd. This indeed shows a very bad state of things in a place that by all odds should be kept in good condition. The fanlt is not with the sexton, who does the best he can with what he has to do with.

Mr. James S. Allen, the retiring sexton, as; everyone knows, worked faithfully during his long term 'of office to i keep tha cemetery looking nice and to keep marauders out. It was no fault of his that he did not accomplish more. The fault is with the city conncil for its niggardly, neglect ul way of treating cemetery affairs.

The cemetery should have been in closed with a substantial high fence long ago. i it should have been provided with a receiving vault and a chapel long ago. It should have had some secure place in which to keep the records and implements, long ago. The driveways and walks should long ago have been improved, Trees should have been trimmed and some that are dangerous removed. The council has always been chary of.its appropriations for cemetery purposes, and the committee were unusually neg lectful of the needs of this place, which could be; made very beautiful indeed with a little more money and a little more attention.

It is hoped the new council and the new committee will pay more attention to cemetery affairs. If it is necessary to keep a patrolman there day and night to prevent depredations such as the theft of flowers, fences, lot stakes and the like, let the city 'furnish one. By all means the cemetery should be put in proper con dition and then properly protected The fact that so little public interest is manifested in the cemetery, and that the present enclosure is densely popu lated with i its silent inhabitants and can be extended no further, is sufficient reason for agitating the subject of a new cemetery, mentioned by The Tribune a short time sgo. A new cemetery is something that must come to this city before many years and the person who provides some plan for securing one will be truly a public bene factor. The procuring of a Bite at a reasonable distance from the city limits should be attended to without delay.

LORADO TAFT ARRIVED. Devoting the Afternoon, to Preparing the 'Stage For Bis Lecture. Mr. Lorado Taft arrived from Chicago at 1:05 o'clock this afternoon. He expected to come on the earlier train and devote the day to leisurely transforming the stage of the Oliver opera house into a sculptor's studio, or the counterfeit presentment of one.

When found by a Tbibuxe reporter he was laying off the ground plan of his studio and consulting with the stage manager about scenery. He thought the opera very pretty and cozy and inquired whether the circle had succeeded indisposing of many seats. He had understood, he. said, that the school children had been given an opportunity to come, and was glad of it. He also referred pleasantly to his visits to South Bend last winter.

His lecture to-night ia calculated to interest everybody who hiss the least taste for art and it will be illustrated with practical demonstrations. Seats may be secured at The Tribune Store. AN EFFORT AT BEAUTIFYING. The Lake Shoro Railroad Xtolng Work In This Direction. The Lake Shore railroad appears to be making an effort at beautifying and making more comfortable its surroundings at the station in this city.

The pretty little park between the depot and Lafayette street is kept up so that its lawn Jand flower beds are very attractive and it is understood that the unsightly: wood fence wiU some time be removed and replaced by an iron one. The brick pavement is completed and thoroughly appreciated by the public The! old water tank west of the station is to be removed and in place of it will be a gooseneck. If the other railroads would follow the Lake Shore's example that class of property here would be much more attractive than at present.

HAVILLA B. HARDY. PETER DANKOW8KI. GOOD lVXaiHGI Got. McKInley's grand speech at Jn dianapolis last Tuesday, will be found on the inside pages of this issue of The Tribune.

Everybody read it. 'I am a democrat." D. Ililli "I am out of politics. IG. Cleveland.

Two immortal sayings born of the year which the democrats of New York might inscribe on their campaign ban ners to help along their harmony 1 1 -ir-; Alpheus Felch, who was governor of Michigan in 1845, celebrated his 90th birthday yesterday at Ann Arbor where he has resided for three-quarters of a century. He is probably the oldest ex-gove rnor living. He is reported bright in mind and vigorous in body. The wind storms in the southeast and northwest simultaneously discovered by the government weather watchers a few days ago have been traveling towards one another scattering destruction in their wake. But their force is well nigh spent and no danger from them may be expected in this region.

Got. Matthews is not popular among the democrats of the mining districts of the state whom he was forced to discipline with the militia last spring, hence he does not have a large hearing from this class when he goes among them to make campaign speeches. The republicans turn, out in goodly numbers, though, and give the governor re HOOSIER SLIDE IS DISAPPEARING. Michigan City's Once Famous Pile of Sand Being Carried Away by Carloads No Longer the Crowning Glory of the Penitentiary Town. The glory of Hoosier slide is fast de- parting the rate it is being car ried away it will in a few years be nothing more that a memory, 6sys the Michigan City Dispatch.

On one of the front doors of the Ash ton grocery are a series of notches. The first one made in 1883 is 40 inches above the floor. Looking through this notch over the top of a telegraph pole on Second street the highest point of Hoosier slide was then in line. Three years later another notch wasi cut in the door about 40 inches above the first one which aindi cated the position of the top of the hill at that time. Since this last notch was cut the sand has been taken away more rapidly than formerly and now it is necessary to stand on a step- ladder and look through the transom window to bring the three points of view in line.

What was formerly the highest point of the hill is now the lowest, as seen when the observer stands in the, doorway of the Ashton store, The present high point is on the north side of the mil, and is con spicuous, as it has been for a. number of years, by the clump of trees and shrubs clingiag tenaciously to its-side. Origin ally this little tuft of shrubs was but little above a point half way between the top of the hill and its base. City Engineer Renkawitz informed a Dispatch representative that he took the elevation of Hoosier slide about 15 years ago and found the highest point was 165 feet above Lake Michigan at that time, or exactly the- same height as the falls of Niagara from the brink to the base of the cataract. Engineer Renkawitz gives it as his opinion that the present low point, which is nearly under the former highest point, is not much over 63 feet above the normal level of the lake.

The loss of 100 feet in elevation means that many thousands of tons of sand have been taken away and converted to useful purposes for the benefit of mankind The drain upon the historic hill still goes on and in a few years the boys of to-day will say to the visitors of the future: "There's where the famous Hoosier Blide used to be," and that portion of the beach will be as innocent of sandhills as the lake front park is to-day. Yankee slide is now the famous land mark in this locality. Fortunately it is within the limits of the park, be longs to the people of Michigan City and is under the fostering care of. the park commissioners. SEPTEMBER MATRIMONY.

Weddings In the City Last Eve nlng other Notes of Society- S3 Mr. Alfred Klingel left his place of business at the usual hour last night and went direct to his home on north Lafayette street. On entering the house he closed the door and locked it in accordance with his usual custom and hanging his hat on the hall tree went up stairs to his den. Mr. Klingel will probably never be able to adequately, describe the emotions that agitated his breast as he stepped with in the sacred precincts of his "holy of holies" and found it occupied by about a dozen of his most intimate friends, but he realized that after having escaped for 50 years he had at last fallen a vic tim to a surprise party.

The affair was managed by Miss Bessie Klingel and Miss Clara Dunham and as far as Mr. Klingel is concerned it was a dumbfounding success. As to the guests, they were delightfully entertained and will remember the occasion as one of the pleasantest of their Uvea. On adjourning to the parlor Mr.Klingel's self possession was further tried by the presentation of a handsome umbrella, which was made on behalf of the guests in Capt. C.B.

Vanpelt's most feli citous style, and it left him all in a heap. In the course of the evening supper was served by the ladies in the dining room, where all were seated at a long table and spent an hour the discussion of fried chicken with trim mings. i''' Mr. James Slocum, an employe at the Singer works, and Miss Susie L. Judy, of 806 north Main street, were married at 8:30 o'clock last evening under novel as weU as auspicious conditions.

The ceremony was performed in a dwelling place, furnished and prepared by the groom on north St. Peter street, where a number of friends gathered to wit ness their union and tender congratu lations. Rev. O. L.

Prentice, pastor of Trinity Presbyterian church, officiated in an impressive manner and an excellent supper followed. Mr. and Mrs. Slocum received quite a number of nice presents. REPUBLICANS OF CENTER.

Nominate a Ticket and Listen to a Roosleg Speech The republicans of Center township met at Smith's school house Thursday evening with a full house. Charles D. Hildebrand was made chairman and Oliver M. Jackson, secretary. Cyrus W.

Foote was nominated for trustee and Samuel Palmer for assessor. The chairman called the name of Jeremiah Hildebrand, candidate for county re corder, amid chee rs which brought him to the stage, where he made a very im pressive speech. The W.
