/"lOING to New York City to search the greatest and best market in the world for
BARGAINS, and with the invincible cash we will be able to secure the cream
of the market, the BEST AND LATEST STYLES, and then, as always before,
WE WILL UNDERSELL
Our stock is fast melting away because the public,that wants goods low in price
and best quality, are taking advantage of our most liberal offer. The J. Paul Jack-
son stock is an example of our underbuying, and now our 38c Men's Underwear, as
well as Collars, Cuffs, ! ies, Gloves, PantSj Overalls, etc., are at prices that prove
our grit in underselling. Ladies Kid Gloves, 5 to 6 1-2, at 75c f°r a short while.
Files, Hardware, Tinware, etc., at regular old prices, regardless of the fact that the
market is up and freight rates raised. A 20c Sock, tan or black, at 10c Best Alarm
Clock, 90c. Lot of Ladies' Undershirts, 18c.
In order to assort and close down our SHOE STOCK we will, until the first day
ot March, sell all Shoes at 10 to 20 per cent off regular price. Our goods are marked
in plain figures, so you can readily see when the discount is made.

GOV. WILLIAM GOKUHL
The echo from the shot Gred
from the state house in Frankfort
which resulted in the death of
Gov. William Qoehel, will ring in
the republicans ears, not only in
Kentucky, but throughout the
South and West, for many years.
That Gov. Goebel's death is the
result of a conspiracy, originating
in the temple of justice (?) of
Kentucky is without question.
The fact that the state house at
Frankfort was crowded with dan-
gerous men, heavily armed, com-
ing from vendetta districts of Ken-
tucky, is enough to prejudice the
minds of all liberty loving, law-
abiding citizens, irrespective of
political atliliations, against Tay-
lor ism. '1 he further fact that those
men were quartered there with the
consent, if not at the request, ol
the governor, sliuuld, and does,
justify the opinion freely exnressed
by democrats, that Taylor was a
party to the assassination of Gov.
Then follow Taylor. See him,
after Goebel is shot, bleeding and
dying, iB carried to the hotel and
when the legislative attempts to
hold n session, for the purpose of
announcing to the world that
Goebel is governor, hear the orders
issuing from the executive's oflice
to the Adjutant general, command-
ing hini to employ force, if neces
sary, in preventing the legislature
convening. Taylor knew that if
Goebel should die before the legis-
lature met that nothing could re-
move him (Taylor) from the oflice
he was debaunching, as no one
would remain who could contest
In no instances have the demo-
crats resorted to force in prosecut
mg the claims of Goebel and Beck-
ham for governor and lieutenant
governor. They looked to the law
for a solution of the matter. The
laws of Kentucky extended to
Goebel the right to appeal from fie
decision of the election com mis
sioners to the state legislature, just
as Oklahoma laws provide for an
appeal froir the district to supreme
When Taylor was inaugurated,
his oath of oflice pledged him to

UKALINO IN "tfUTl'KKS."
A contributor to the Houston,
(Texas,) Post Kays:
Several days since, the I'ost con-
tained an article condemning a
New York future house that posed
as the friend of the South, hut
which exhibited its cloven foot in
an endeavor to bear the market in
the interest of English ami North-
ern cotton buyers. That article at-
tracted much attention. So few
papers dare to raise their voice
against the future business that it
is refreshing when one lias the nerve
to condemn it.
IIov it is possible for the South
to be prosperous, laboring under
the incubus of future dealing, is a
The bucket shops each day are
draining millions of dollars fiom
all ove>' the Southern States, into
the coffers of the sharpers of New-
York. We often wonder how
there are so many exceedingly rich
men in the North. This is not a
matter of wonderment at all to the
initiated. The great future houses,
located in New York City, have
branch houses, or agencies through-
out the South.
The ambition of thousands of
Southern husiiicti* men is to dial in
futures. It require* $ 100 to make
a bet, and as n. on as he Accumu-
lates this amount he straightway
makes a deal, and it invariably
goes ''where the woodbine twineth"
— into the pooktls of tluse North
em brokers. I he market is con
trolled by English and New York
manipulators, and the Southern man
might as well throw his money in
the fire as to endeavor to win from
these sharpers. The laro bank is a
much safer jnme than futures.
We raise ;i great lute and cry
against the gambling houses of our
• it i« h a11«i entirely ignore this great
>ctopus, sucking the community dry
>f its wealth and prosperity, scat
teiing misery broadc.tM, wrecking
business houses ai d thsowing tin
best interests of our State into
bankruptcy. W« see paupered
families, once in atHuuence, render-
ed miserable, and often the head of
the family tilling a suicide's grave,
because of his infatuation for the
horrible vice of future dealing.
The only difference between a
bucket shop and a faro bank is that
it requires more money to deal iu
futures. The man with 25 cent
can bet at faro, while $100 is the
smallest bet taken by the future
bank. The better has a much
better chance at the faro bank for
he can watch and keep tally on the
game. That is arrangeed and
manipulated iu London and New
York and when his margin is ex
hausted he must put up or shut up
A matter of astonishment to me
is that inen seeking office will swear
to annihilate the gambling vice of
of their cities, but never an effort
do they make against this great
curse of the century. Why is this?
These big future dealeres are a
power, and the office holder, bein
devoid of principle and backbone is
afraid of them. The future busi
ness is criminal in the eyes of the
law, and the law should be enforc-
ed. Have we any representatives
or senators with nerve enough to
tackle these lawless concerns and
drive them out of Texas? Our
State, with its inexhaustible re
sources, would he the most prosper-
ous land on earth were these pov-
ert> disseminators wiped out.
Now, Mr. Representative, or Mr.
Senator, speak out in meeting ne*t
session of the legislature, or we
will have no more confidence in vou
or your promise. An infatuated
future better, in the toils of the
bucket shop, is helpless and requires
protection just as does a child. By
enforcing the law you can protect
thtni. F. P. If.
As \s..s prophecised by the Dkmo*

moved but on the contrary has the
laugh on his many political enemies

orial tree. Barnes says his victory
•is a complete vindication" for
himself and friends.

OOVERNMKNT BY ASSASSINATION.
In the Courier-Journal Friday,
Mr. Watterson in a savage in inner
charged Mr. Taylor vitli responsi
bility for the attempted assawsina
tion of Senator Goebel. 11 is edi-
torial was entitled, "Government by
Assassination," and in it lie hays:
"Many a man has been hanged
upon less evidence than that which
connects Mr. Taylor with the at-
tempted assassination of Mr., now* i

grace of the Louisville and Nash-

blocked by Taylor's orders. Two
days have passed and not a word is
said by this mock Governor, so
ready with his treasonable proclama-
tions, and so prompt with his law-
less use of troops to disperse legis-
lative bodies and to terrorize courts
of law, to pursue the prepetralors
of the horrible deed done under his
own official roof, almost in his
presence, and by men brought to
Frankfort by his orders. If this
be not a public acknowledgment of
complicity, then there is no signi
ficance iu human conduct. Even a
Louisville and Nashville Railroad
attorney would characterize it as at
the very least contributory neglig-
