H HAVEN ENOUGH FOU HIM.
List evening I was talking
With an editor aged and gray,
Who told me of a dream lie had,
I think 'twas yesterday,
While snoozing ir, his ollice
Tile vision came tu viaw,
For he saw an angel  enter,
Dressed in garments white and now,
Slid the angel, " I'm from heaven,
The Lord just .sent me down
To bring you up 10 glory
And put on your golden ciowh.
You've been a friend to everyone,
And worked hard night and day;
You have supported many   thousands,
And from few received your pay,
S ' we want you up in !{lorv,
Eor you have labired hard,
And the good Lord is preparing
Your eternal, just reward."
Then the angel and the editor
Started up to.varIs|glory's gate,
But   when   passing   close    to   Hides,
Tiie angel  murmured:  "Wait !
I have a place to sli-i.v yuu.
It's the hottest place iu bell,
Whore the ones who   never paid   you,
In torment always dwell."
And, behold the editor saw  ihere
His old subscribers by the score,
And grabbing up a chiir and fan,
He wished for nothing inure;
But was bound to sit and watch  them
As they'd, sizzle,  singe and burn
And his eyes   would   rest on   debtors
Whichever way they'd turn.
Slid tho angel, ''Come on, editor,
There's the pearly gale I sec."
Il.lt the editor only muttered,
"This is heaven enough for llie."

late Mr. Robert Slmnson. An unequalled Judge of dress goods and silks, nls

of the store's most valued and most
carefully treasured assets ever »luce.

A fire alarm was rung in last night
which called the fire brigade to the

ai theie was no fir' iu that part of t e

that one of the children must have
taken a light into the room. For
tiinately the II.unes were noticed by
Win. Clark, who promptly shouldered
his Bibcock extinguisher, and running
to the burning house extinguished the
fire. The lire brigade lost no time in
responding to the call, but their ser
vices were not required A quantity
of clothing was destroyed but otherwise the damage was slight. When
llie alarm was raised, George Paquin
Joe Leahy ran to the fire hall to ring
the bell, but they pulled too hard on
the rope, turning the bell over, so that
a few tolls were all that were heard.
LIBERAL   CONVENTION
w.
A.    GALLTHKH     UNANIMOUSLY NOMINATED.
DR. SINCLAIR PROPOSED, DUT
WITHDRAWS.
A Liberal onnvention was held in
Nelson on Tuesday last for the purpose of selecting a candidate to con
test the approaching Dominion election.
John Keen of Kaslo, presided over
the meeting, and J. A. Turner acted
as secretary,
A committee on credentials was
appointed, and their report having
been accepted, the chairman called for
nominations,
F. E Simpson, Cranbrook, nominated W. A. Galliher. Dr. I). E. Kerr,
Rnssland seconding the nomination.
M. Campbell proposed and Henry
Hoy seconded the nomination of Dr.
Sinclair.
Dr. Sinclair in one of his character-
is' lo speeches, in which he referred to
his great services to the Liberal partyi
withdrew from the nomination, and
Mr. Galliher was therefore the unanimous choice.
The following resolutions were carried unanimously :
Moved by D. P. Kane, seconded by
H 13. Douglas, and resolved, that this
convention direct its executive to telegraph Sir Wilfrid Laurier, asking that
the regulations for the operation of the
bind Bounty Act, lilO.'l, be immediate*
ly promulgated and put in force.
Moved by R. VV. Qrlgor, seconded
by Dr. Kerr: Whereas the successful
operation of a plant recently installed
at liossland. known as the Elmore oil
process has proved that the concentra
tion of ores by such process would render it possible to mine and treat at a
profit large bodies of ore, which have
hitherto been unprofitable ; mid where
as this process requires for its successful operation large quantities of oil
of certain special properties, which
Cannot now he obtained in wiinudui
nul is now subject to a duty of ö cent»

That in the o| itiion of this association
the best interests of the mining com"
inunitv would be served by placing on
the free list oil necessary for the réduction of Oies by any oil process until
such oil can he produced in Canada.
Moved by Dr. G. A. B. Hall,
seconded by A. il. Duckworth, "that
we express our unbounded confidence
in Sir Wilfrid Laurier."
At the suggestion of S. M, Kellie of
Revelstoke, a permanent campaigning
animation was formed, consisting of S
S. Taylor, K. C.,c!iuirinati ; a secretary
treasurer to be appointed by the candidate, and tho chairman and the follow
ing executive ohftsed by the représenta
tives from each of the nine provincial
ridings as follows :
Rosslaud,   Dr. D. E   Kerr ; Fernie,
F. Stork ; Cranbrook, M. Mein lies ;
Columbia, R. S. Gallop of Athelmai ;
Kaslo, John L. Retallaok ; Nelson, Dr
G. A. B. Hall ; Revelstoke, J. M.
Kellie ; Slocan, G. McVannol ; Ymir,
A  B   Buck-worth.
The Nelson Daily News gives the
following sketch of Mr. Galliher:
W. A. Galliher was horn on a farm
iu Bruce county, Ontario, in I860. He
was educated at the public school and
at the high school. Walkerton and
collegiate institute, Collingwood. lie
is a son of Frank Galliher and his
wife, Sarah Kirko.itrick, both from
tho north of Ireland, He taught
school for a time in Ontario and came
to Manitoba in 1881, where he entered into the study of law in the ollice
of Archibald, Howell, Hough and
Campbell in the city of Winnipeg,
graduating from that ollice He took
a prominent part in a'l kinds of nth«
l.nic spurts for year-. He was one of
the Nile voyageurs who went to Egypt
and took part in the Soudan campaign
under Lord Woolsley in 1884 and
1885 for which he received the Imperial service medal and the Khedive
of Egypt's bronze star. He practiced
law in Manitoba for about a year and
then removed to Lethbridge in the
North-west Territories and entered into partnership with C. F P. Cony
bearc, K. C, remaining there eight
years during which time he acted frequently as crown prosecutor for the
dominion government and on extradition cases from the United State--.
Coming west to Rossland in 1896 lie
remained there for about a year, finally
settling in Nelson where he has been
engaged in the practice of his profession in partnership with Peter Wilson,
and in politics. Mr Galliher has always been a keen politician and closely
identified with the Liberal party since
coming west. He was largely instrumental   iu   organizing   the    Liberal
association in Nelson nod was its Anil
president continuing in that ollice until
his election   to the   house of commons
in December, 1000, succeeding Hewitt
linstock for the Yale-Ciil'ilioo district,
wlio, owing to his business requiring
his   personal   attention,   declined   the
unanimous nomination tendered him
at the Liberal convention in Revelstoke in June of I hat year. Mr
Galliher was l.'ien tenderod the
unanimous nomination which he accepted and carried the liberal colors to
victory by the handsome majority of
520 in a three cornered light. At.
the present liberal convention he was
unanimously nominated   ami   should
now be elected by a much larger
majority.

VMIR SNOWBALLS.
A FINE, BUT NO FINISH TO
THE CASE.
The little room in the Ymir lock-up
where court is held, was crowded yesterday when the cuse of Steele vs. McLeod was called—the first sitting of
the court for the year of grace l'JOI-
J. W Ross and P. J. Glea/.er were
seated on the " bench," to investigate
the charge—one ot assault. if the
charge was one of murder there could
not have been greater interest manifested. Every available man in town
—witli nothing else to do—turned up
and listened, awe stricken, to the
evidence adduced, which was ns
follows :
W. A. Nicholson deposed that he
saw Dan McLeod running after David
Steele, who fell down and McLeod
tlaeu walked around him and kicked
him iu the face ; when the boy got ul
he was covered with blood.
Junes Gillc was the next witness.
He swore that he ivi: with last witness at the tune of the occurrence
McLeod made a kick at Steele. The
boy fell on the snow, and McLeod
kicked him. Could not say that the
marks borne by llie boy were caused
by the kicks or blows. The boy ufter
wards sat in the snow holding his
hands to his head, as if the blows hud
luken. effect there.
David Steele, the injured lad, deposed.— Us buys were snowballing
around DesIJriaay's store ; Dan McLeod came out and told us to get
away ; 1 did not understand, and he
hit mc mi the breast, und knocked me
down ; I went on the other side of the
store, und told him not Lo . hit me
again ; he then hit me attain, and I
picked up a snowball and threw it,
but I did not hit him ; he then ran
after me and struck me, whether with
his foot or not I do not know ; the
blow took effect on my heud, cutting
me.
J G. Willuiighby deposed that he
saw the commencement of the row.
Steele and another hoy were on the
sidewalk at DesBrisay's, walking up
towards the Waldorf ; McLeod ran
aftei them und knocked Steele down ;
Steele said you had better not do that
again. McD.mil knocked him down
again. The boy then gjt up, picked
up a snowball and thrtw it, but did
not hit McLeod, who turnol and ran
ufter him, catching him on the sidewalk near Neelands, kicking at him as
he jumpe.) from the sidewalk. He did
not known whether the kick took
effect or not. McLeod jumped off the
sidewalk after the boy, but witness
could not say what happened.
J). McLeod, defendant, deposed tint
the boys were at llie store door when
he came out, having been there
half an hour or more : he ordered them
awuy several times, but they were
waiting for another boy in tho store,
and would not M" away. 1 shoved
Steele down twice, and gave him a
little jolt, which I swear did not mark
him, nor did J hit him on the neck ; he
refused to go away and defied n.e, Ar
ing a wet snowball at me, I then
turned and ran after him ; I was
running as last as 1 could, aid coild
not therefore have kicked him ; he fel|
in tliu snow und I slapped him ami
walked oil' again at once, I »a-
greatly aggravated, and lost my tew
per, otherwise I »oJld not huve stiujk
him.
The magistrates) after due deliberation, found the defendant guilty, and
imposed a fine of |S and costs."
W, O. Steele, the father of the lad,
who is about II years of age, an 1 win,
appeared iu court with a nasty serai.«!,
ou the bridge of the nose, objected tu
the line as insiillicicnt to meet tin
gravity of tin case, and gave notice ot

There was a break down at the VVil
cox tramway last week which necessitated the suspension of work for a
few days. One of the buckets slipped
the cable and broke. All is right
igain, and the »old bricks will be
forthcoming with due regularity.
Mr. E Hooper, director of the London it B. C. Goldfields, Ltd., who has
been inspecting the Y'mir mine, has
left the camp, leaving Mr. G. II. Barn-
hart in charge Mr Atwater severs
Ids connection with the mine as
manager, and leaves for the east on
Monday next.
Pumping operations at the Dundee
■nine continue and it is expect al that
ill the water will be out of the mine
in a couple of days. Last night it had
been pumped to the 'JOO-f.iot level.
As soon as the water is out mining
will be resumed, and before long
regular shipments of ore will begin.
Consulting engineer Grncey was up at
the property the other day
President Johnston of the B. C.
Standard Mining Co. operating the
Hunter V property was iu camp during the week accompanied by Mr.
Robertson of Winnipeg, a large stockholder in the company. They yisited
the mine and inspected the wsrks in
iperiltion and express themselves as
thoroughly satisfied with the progress
being made, The only delay to th»
shipping of ore is the tramway which
is not as yet in running order. Every,
thing is on the ground to complete the
tram, but the weather seriously retards
ihe work. The men are up to their
,'iips in snow, and stringing cable under
such circumstances is slow. The din
tance from ihe railway spur lo the
upper terminal is nearly i\ miles, and
there are a few subsidiary lines.
Weather permitting, everything should
be in running order by the end of the
month This is a company thai, dons
not part with a share under par, and
the demrild for the stock shows that
its value is appreciated.

SATURDAY, JAN.   10.
f^\ AST week we had occasion to ro-
*-*■ fer to the " liberal " actions of tiie
little clique who appear to run the
Liberal inn chine in this camp We
stated then—on the authority of the
gentleman himself—that J. W Ross
had resigned the presidency of tho
Ymir Liberal Association in disgust.
Tue circumstances under which this
action was taken were correctly sot
forth in our article, and are denied by
nobody save by that paragon of veracity, A. 11 Duckworth, the nowly
appointed Grit correspondent of tho
Nelson Daily News In unothe;
column will be found a letter which
'■tplains the appointment : ir, is Ouit
news the News is after, and it will he
dished up without any qualms of conscience by the Ymir representative. A
glaring example of what liberties can
betaken with the truth appears in the
News of Tuesday last. It is from the
Ymir correspondent of that pape", and
slates that Mr. Ross had not resigned
as president of the Liberal Association
mid that "he has no intention of resigning from thu association as president." As to what Mr. Ross's intentions are, wo d» not know ; but that
he DID resign, and resign under the
circumstances detailed iu the MlRROH,
there is no doubt whatever : ho incurred an expanse of $2 in summoning
a meeting of the association, the as
so'iation declined to honor the bill,
and Mr. Ross told those pi osent that
he would have nothing further lo do
with "the crowd." Next day he sent
iu his resignation. This was considered
at the last meeting of the association,
and Paddy Daly moved that the resignation be accepted, There was, however, no seconder, and an amendment
carried expressing confidence in Mr
Itoss, ami asking him to continue iu
ollice. Of these facts Mr. Buck worth
was in My aware, and yet he makes the
deliberate statement that .Mr. Ross did
lint resign. If this is the class of cor
ri'spoiiduiice supplied from this camp
the vulgar interpretation of uumgrano
sails (with a big dose of salts) will be
excusable.
Bin Bill Galliher, M.P., lins been
chosen to contest the next dominion
election in the Libera! interests, with

on the Thursday preceding the acci
d-'iit, in which case he would doubtless
have been a passenger on the Clallam
Fortunately, he was detained until
Saturday, a circumstance which saved
him a very sad experience, if nothing
worse, Tiie foundering of the Clallam
goes to show that she was not a bout
suitable for the run between Victoria
and Seattle, und that she was not pro
vided with ordinary safeguards, such
as rockets, for instance. Weie a few
of these sky scrapers available help
, would have be n forthcoming in timo
to have saved all on board, and pro
bably the vessel herself, though t.issing
about rudderless, The aynrice of a
grasping steamship company sboul J

of passengers,
Ax alleged interview with Hairy
Wright, said to have taken place iu
Northport, is going the rounds of the
press, which says that the member for
Ymir opened his heart to a newspaper
correspondent in the smelter town, and
told him that he stood h'gh in the
esteem of Premier McBride, and that
he had been promised a portfolio. The
,tni bears all the oar-marks of Ymir.
Mr. Wright is too sensible a man to
talk thus over tho border.
l'utu is again poking his nose into
politics—this lime ns ti«. delegate from
ihe Ymir Mill to the Liberal Couven
linn,      One would have thought thai
In the, event of war between Russia
and Japan the issue will be clearly un
derstood by the world, Russia has
ventured to encroach on Japan's recognized sphere of influence, ui.d has been
ordered oil. Like a great bully, the
Muscovite power hesitates lo obey the
uieiidati! of its plucky little rival, and
while it hesitates the dugs of war
threaten to break loose. Japan's goar
dianship over Corca is not a new doctrine. It led to the war between
China und Japan in 18U4, when the
Japanese fought for and won the independence of the peninsula. Someone has described Corea as an arrow
pointed at the heart of Japan That
is exactly how the situation presents
itself to the Japanese mind. If Corea
were occupied by a strong bostile'powcr
it would always be a positive menace
to Japan, There uro, however, other
reasons for Japanese interest in Corea
Japanese expansion and enterpris
reach out in the direction of Corea, ho
that Japan is practically endeavoring
to lead its sister nation along the pathway of modem civilization. While
not particularly progressive, Corea, is
grateful for the protection und guidance of its .stand neighbor, Russia
on the other hand, meditates the absorption of Corea. Its lirst step in
that direction was the seizure of Manchuria under pretext of a temporary
occupation during the Boxer tumbles.
By the agreement with the powers,
made on April Ulli, 11)02, Russia was
to have evacuated Manchuria in eigb-
ticn lltolltlis. The time limit expired,
but Russia remained, Manchuria is
the hick yard of Corea, It was annoy
ing enough to the Japanese to Hud the
Russians, in spite of their bond, »till
lingering in Manchuria, but still more
„xuspeuitiiig was it when they moved
across the boundary i (to Core . 'I his
was done under cover of a coiniiiercia
concession, fiom tho Corean Government. Bussiun capitalists hail been
conceded the privilege of cutting timber in tho forests of the Yiilu Valley
So vaguely bad the privilege been dc-
liucd that the speculators cli.imed the
m bur in the entire die rie   travers iîj
by the Yalu River, from source to
mouth, mid along all its tributaries«
To operate this concession a force was
moved into Corea, an important port
was occupied, and a Russian semi-
militiuy communityl was established'
Corca objected, Japan protested, but
Russia was indifferent to all representations. The Czar's Government was
plainly repeating the process by which
it had fastened itself upon Manchuria.
Or. buhalf of Russia the suggestion
has been advanced that the zone of
Russian operations should be neutral
ized, that is to say, alienated from the
sovereignty of Corea. To this Japan
will not consent. Nothing short of
evacuation of the territory will satisfy
the Mikado's Government. In taking
that position Japan bus undoubtedly
tho sympathy of the civilized world.
It i.s not seeking to add it foot of land
to its territory. It is simply demanding that Russia shall take its hands oft"
Corea, whose independence Japan is
pledged to maintain.

Life insurance companies which had
policy-holders that lost their lives in
the Iroquois lire will pursue a liberal
policy iu the settlement of the losses
Announcement is made by tho managers of most of tho high class companies that there will be no quibbling
over technicalities. Without exception, the managers of tho large companies said that any reasonable proof
of death und the receipt for the amount
of the policy from tho beneficiaries
would bo all that would-be required,
The precedent that will be followed by
the substantial companies is the same
as in the Galveston flood, where u
coroner's verdict was required.
Cheques for the amounts uf insurance
carried by some ■ victims have already
been given to the beneficiaries.
Tho Westminster Gazette, Londoi I
says:—Tho resolution which the Can»
diun Manufacturers' Association lu.s
just passed proves very interesting.
I'ariff reform in Canada is advocatec'i
but there is no sign of a schedule uf
forbidden industries, or of any willing
ness to give that fair measure in return
which Mr. Chamberlain demands as
the price of tariir preference by the
Mother Country, The words 'foreign
competition " aro used clearly to include British competition. The West
minster Gazette commands the map to
those who beliovo that tho colonies
have made any offer.
The Canadian Pacific Railway Company is making it known to its thousands of employees that drunkenness in
any department will not be tolerated,
and one uf llie plans adopted is to urge
as severe a sentenco as the law allows
in casus where the safety of the public
has twin iu jeopardy. As it result,
John Band ridge and Harry M. Hill»
man, .engineers, Montreal, have been
sent to jail without the option of u
line. In the case of Bandridge, there
,s a 8011.unce of six mouths,'which is
probably the loiigc.t sentence iu it
Canadian court for a like offence. Hill-
man's sentence was four months.
As a result of the reel it trip made

CAUSE FOR COMPLAIN I.
addressed
to
The   following  letter,
the editor of thu Nelson Daily News, is
self-explanatory:
I notice in Th« Daily News Ja paragraph mentioning my sending in an account for $17 50 to thu Nelson Agricultural & Industrial Association, for
■watching," »ml that thu samu was
turned down. In justllicuiioti lo myself and the oitiaens of Ymir who greatly
assisted in getting the exhibit together
I should fuel obliguil if you would publish the following explanation.
I arrived in Nelson with the Ymir
exhibit thu day buloru the exhibition
and upon going to the grounds found
'Jiings vury backward, and it was net
until late at night that I was able to
secure a position for my e.xhibt; I then
had to obtain men to assist in getting
it into place and hi order. During the
following two days I had two men constantly attending the exhibit, and even
with that protection several valuable
samples were lost, aud others (borrowed ones) badly damaged. It was commented upon by members of the mining
committee that I was running to a great
expense and I was advised Iu send in
an account of lb« cxpensu I was put to
while on the exhibition grounds, and
was told if I did so it would be paid.
This 1 did about September 28tb, and
al Ibe same time sending a letter of explanation, and I may Say lhat Jboth were
i-iiinpletely ignored. Furthur, at the
exhibition I was awarded three lirsl
prisses and the ouly diploma giycn in
the mining section (vide ikaily News
report.), a» I up to the present time I
U.iVd nut received any ol llieni.
At the beginning of till* year I thought
il was time (Uinuthiiig was dune about
tile mailer as 1 was told that other camps
who ceri'tainly never had Iheni awarded
were showing diplomat« received from
Nelson; so I wrote Mr. Aiutble about
the matter, stating that I thought it
lime I received some recognition, und
reminding biiu that be bad not answered my previous letter, The paragraph
mentioned in your paper is the only
answer I have received up to llie pie-
*'iit.
After such treatment from tlvi N. A-
iX I. Anoci ition, mul c »iisiilering tint
toy out of pocket expenses mi llie ex
lirhit were c nisidnra.ily over $li).>, you

since Mr. Carnegie decided that it
is a disgrace lo die rich, an I set about
avoiding the stigma by opening his j
pockeibook, the habit of giving to pub- !
lie purposes Ins become ipiite general
in the United Stiles. Tllu extent to
which llie practice has grown is revealed by statistics of the benelictious of
the past year. Altogether il appears,
that the weilthy men and woiiieu nf the
Republic have mule public donations
to the extent ol *7li,!i:l l.!)W. Mote
than have nf this—$10,700,693—has
been given to education. Charity» including hospitals, comes next with $21-
72ti,35S. Third on the list are public
libraries, which receive If7,,"i8:l,5öii.
Kor religious purposes the sum ol #:t-
'J'Jti 'Jill, was donated, while art galleries and museums received %'ifiïJ-
500. This list does not exhaust the
catalogue of the nation's givings. It in
eludes only the gills of a thousand dollars and upwards. Still larger iu the aggregate must have been the popular
contributions lo the multitudinous objects that appeal for popular support
and enlist the help even of the widow's
mite. The seventy-seven millions are
however, a truly imposing gift. Mr
Carnegie, ol course, stands easily at llie
heed of the list: lie bestowed sflö.'Jliö-
0Ô0 on public purposes during llie year
For libraries alone he gave |5,507,000.
Another large contributor was Mr.
John D. Koekefcller, who gave away
$8,044,697, mainly to colleges. A Huston millionaire, Arioch Weiilwurth, lift
seven millions tu found au industrial
school. this activity of I lie spirit ol
giving is> one ol llie hopeful signs ol (Intimes. It is the most practical assertion o( the doctrine of the brotherhood
of mau. When lite nine hoarding ol
wealth is no longir lite gospel ol everyday life, and lus'ii cense lo cling lo riclms
lor liehe» sake, llie world will be a belter world for all of IIS—for the millionaire as well as for llie pauper.

The Chicago Federal ion ist, inlluui;-

unionists to read and consider llie following suggestions, as they seriously
concern llie welfare of those enlisted
in thu army of organized workmen:
'• the question of keeping contracts
wilh employers of labor is the most
vi'al point in the armour of labor. And
in the decision arrived at on this living issue can we estimate the future
usefulness of trades unions as a guide
to labor's moral mid material progress
"It must be apparent lo every man
01 woman coriuecled with organized
labor thai they have entered into a contract joining the local union of thiir
waft, to abide by I him contract wiill-
out regard to personal luss iirgaiu; thai

CANADA'S FINEST STORE.
Wonderful   Growth  of  the  flail   Order   Business   of  The   Robert   .Simpson
Company, Limited, Toronto.
SOVE INTERESTING DETAILS OF THE BIO TORONTO STORE.
Toronto has long been noted as the
city of fine stores. With her miles of
beautiful residential streets, her avenues of tre?s. splendid lake frort,
unequalled street car service and her
Brent department stores, such as that
n' the Robert .Simpson Company, her
cltlrens possess advantages few other
cities can boast.
The firm, ki Mr. Simpson's death,
In 1S97. became a limited company,
mid no modern phenomenon of the
business world, en far as Toronto is
conceited, has occasioned more remark than the growth of the business
of the Itobert Simpson Company,
Large though the building Is and added to from time to time as It has been,
The Hoben Simpson Company build-
lug stands In the most prominent position In .he city, viz., the Houthwest
corner nf Queen and Toa^e Strews,
where, situated In the very centre of
the city. It has long been one of th»
most familiar land-marks of the town.
As a specimen of modern store architecture. It stands supreme In Canada.
It extends from Queen Street on che
north cleor through the block to Itleh-
tnond Street on the south, with a long
series of magnlfteent front windows
on Queen, Tonge and Richmond
Streets. Counting the basement, the
store numbers seven selling floors,
ench  of  whloh  would   provide
Room for a Regiments Drill
Manoevers.
On these seven floors, In twenty1-
three distinct departments, praotlcally
everything needed tn dally life, mnv
be bought for the lowest economical
price for which a Btore oan sell It.
Experienced enterprising "buyers"
are scouring the world nearly six
months of the year securing the most
suitable merchandise where It Is produced best and cheapest. Quantity Is
no drawback. The bigger quantity
bought, the lower the price. It the
good« are right the Robert Simpson
Company cannot take too much of
them.
The badness now known as the Robert Simpson Company Limited was
established away back In 1873. by the
late Mr. Robert Simpson. An unequalled Judge of dress goods and silks, nls
store soon acquired a reputation for
dress fabrics second to none In Can*
ada, and that reputation has been one
of the store's most valued and most.
carefully treasured assets ever s.'nee.
Soon Tonge Street rivalled King Street
In Its attraotlveness for the ladles of
Toronto, and when after the great fire
In 1895. the new bnlldtn« was erected.
Tonge Street was Indisputably master
of the situation. To-day the tide of
retnll business flows full«*! right »t
Ihe corner of Queen and Tonge Street«,

R eentercd ten year« tntr
