Inspect my line and I (jnarantee you will be an addition to the crowds of real bargain •eekers that buy their clothing, hats and shirts at th9 New Broadway store. t Volume of Business Larger Than Last Year at This Time.

The supporters of tbe law 'are doing everything in their power to induce some of their opponents to change front, and it has been hoped that Mr. Jackson could be induced to look through the spectacles of Mr. McMillan- But these efforts wfll probr ably fail. The exact reverse is far more likely to be tHe case and it looked Saturday as .thouffh Justices Earlan, Brown or Shiras .".would changfc and that the court will, decide the entire' law, or rather the income tax' faaturo of the tariff act unconstitutional} by This new constitution must bo rati8ed by the C.

Big 1 trofltt Are In Sight for American Manufacturer!*. WASHINGTON, May 11.—Large opportunities for.the introduction of American machinery and the investment of American capital are offered by the peace agreement Japan has just effected with China. A provision is made that China shall hereafter bo open to the introduction of all forms of modern machinery, and that sucb machinery shall be admitted free of duty. American cotton machinery should benefit specially from the new opening presented and also telephones, electric lights, printing presses and many other devices of civilization which heretofore have been kept out of China. The emperor of China has heretofore prohibited the introduction of modern machinery. As a result the Chinese are using wooden plows similar to those used centuries ago. Modern tools are included under the head of machinery and mechanical devices, so that the American plow aad all other implements and tools will enter China free of duty. It is- stated that cotton machinery will be brought at once into extensive use, thus enlarging the demand for the raw cotton of the southern states. ' One Operator Give* in.

VICTIMS OF GAS. Frightful Explosion in Chicago Wrecks a Lodging House, Four Men Alr««dy D«»d—Natural Q«i and a Bolt of Lightning the Alleged CauM of the Accident. CHICAGO. May 11.—Explosions, presumably of natural gas, shook the region of the board of trade about 1:115 o'clock this morning. Pedestrians rushing to the corner of Jackson and Sherman streets saw flames leaping riotously out of the first floor of M. Hoppel's saloon at 10 Sherman street. The first explosion was followed by a second and more severe shock, and the entire front of the saloon was wrecked. An alarm of fire was turned in. but before the engines arrived the inmates of the doomed building began to appear at the windows. Jumped from the Window. August Michael, who rents the upper floors as a hotel and the basement .as a French restaurant, jumped from the third-story window. When picked up he was bleeding at the mouth and unconscious. He was taken to the county hospital. Mrs, Michael and two children were left in the building and were found by the firemen, who climbed in through the window. They were near- Iv suffocated. They were taken down the ladder and hurried oil to the hospital. Found Seven Men Nearly Suffocated, As soon as the flames were got under control the firemen pushed into the building to see if there were not others to rescue. Mrs. Michael said she 'thought there were at least a dozen persons in her husband's furnished rooms. The third floor was first explored, being farthest from the fire. In the back room the limp bodies of seven unconscious men were discovered. The fire had reached them and the evidences of strangulation by smoke were convincing. Each was foaming at t!ie mouth aud gave no signs^of respiration or pulsiLtion. Drs. Tollman and Linden applied their best efforts to- save these victims, believing that every chance was against success. Klev«n Injured. Besides Mr. and Mrs. Michael and their two children, Mary, uged 20 months, and Louise, aged S months, seven men were taken down the lad- dors. The explosion is supposed to have resulted from the accumulation of natural pas in the basement. Thero . was a heavy bolt of lightning preceding the explosion, and: it was the theory of the firemen that this might have been the cause of it Three Victim* Die- Three persons died during 1 the morning as a result of their burns and injuries. Alexander de Sunke expired at the county hospital at 0:30 o'clock and Frank Bauio died soon after. Frank Conci, for a time unidentified, died at the county hospital at noon.
