The plans andspecifications of the new Missouri Pacific shops were submitted to the Council by Mayor Kelsey last night, together with the letter of B.P. Waggoner, general attorney for the company, stating that they were ready to enter into contract with the city, according to the proposition heretofore submitted. Objections were raised that the plans and specifications did not indicate the cost of the buildings to be erected, or the number of men the company intends to employ. After a protracted debate a committee was appointed to confer with the officers of the company, with the view of ascertaining the facts referred to, nnd report at the next meeting of the Council. The bids for the paving of North Tenth street with vitrified brick were also laid over until next meeting, as none of the bidders had filed certified checks as an earnest of good faith.

.tllas IHKHIIK" St. Joseph Reception. Ouce upon a time Col. James N. Burnes, now Bepreseutative in Cougress from all the river counties on the Missouri side, opposite Atchison, was bitterly nnd vindictively assailed and almost farced outside the pale of his party for saying to Mrs. General Grant, at a social gathering: "Madam, I esteem it a high honor to have the privilege of clasping, the hand of the wife of the greatest soldier his country has ever produced—the Napoleon of America." It was an outburst of gallantry, but it was a long time before the mossback element in the colonel's constituency recovered from the shock. But the St. Joseph Herald fairly balances the scale in its description of the- reception tendered Miss Ethel IngiiHs, daughter of Senator Ingnlls of Kansas, by Miss Virginia Burnes, at the residence of the distinguished Congressman, last Friday evening. After all, without social lies there could lie no party ties, but they arc separate and distinct, and the one should never be permitted to interfere with the other.

Corsets, Bustles and Furnishing Goods at Special Sale.

D o n a l d Biros
In the field of distribution, or the retail business, the buyer deals with the seller on unconditional terms. Everything is in favor of the buyer, competition, cheap production and the over weaning ambition of dealers to increase sales without regard to profit. All combine to make the buyer the autocrat, and if he feels like it fie can even then pocket his roll and stalk off, leavingthe seller weeping and gnashing his teeth. To cackle or cajole is not to convince. We prefer figures. Listen:;
