A recent dispatch from Topeka.
Es., says: Alexander Terrel, a
armer of Harper county and a peo
ple's party leader, started the new
year by formulating a circular to
be old soldiers of Kansas asking
their co-operation in forming an
old soldiers political union. Terrel
was a delegate to the Ocala conven-
lon and aram to the Cincinnati
convention, and claims that while
at these gatherings he discovered
absolute proof that the farmers
movement was simply an attempt
on the part of southern leaders to
break the republican strength in
be northwest, and that the aim is
o defeat the pension svstem. He
will begin by trying to organize old
soldiers into political clubs which
will act separately from the Grand
Army posts. Soldiers in the demo
cratic party have been asked to join
u ij i j:
afloat. These being the facts, the
president of the Era company, and
bis lieutenants brought such a pres
sure to bear upon Murphy and Hill
that they were forced to make the
award to the Era, even though in
their own minds they were satisfied
that in so doing they were cheating
the county out of a large sum of
money. The writer has been con
nected with newspaper work in
North Platte for nearlv a dozen
years, and this is the hrst instance
within that time that the county
publishing has not been let to the
lowest bidder. It is also the hrst
time that two commissioners have
proceeded to make Lincoln county

Mr. Hammond, the new commission

the award to the Era on its bid, but
he, too, was powerless, and the
award was duly made Saturday even

to be an organization of reform, but
if the actions of the members who

PADDOCK'S PURE FOOD BILL.
The committee on agriculture, of
which Senator Paddock is chairman
met a few davs ago and took up
he various bills before it. By a
unanimous vote the chairman was
instructed to report favorably senate
bill JNo. 1, the Paddock pure food
bill, providing against the adulter
ating of food and drugs. Two
minor amendments were added to
he bill, one of. which cuts off the
increase in the salary of the chief
chemist of the government who, by
the terms of the bill, is to be made
the head of the division in the agri
culture department, the other
amendment being a verbal one in
the clause which provides for the
division of samples of food products
selected by agents of the govern
ment for inspection.
The pure food bill now goes to

very favorable position for prompt
discussion and passage.

ton had "seen with his own eyes
the enormous nrosperitv of the
United States and had noticed an
almost complete absence of the il
effects of underpaid workers which
were to be seen on every side in
other countries." He therefore
made up his mind that the Ameri
can people would not consent to any
material reductions in their tariffs,
and that England's cry- for free
trade was "like crying for the

American people are satisfied to let
well enough alone. It mav now be

WANT THE MORTGAGE FORECLOSED
At the meeting of the state alli
ance at Lincoln last week, a resolu
tion was passed demanding the
government to institute proceed-
. w il fa
ings to foreclose tne nen ot tne
United States on the Union Pacific
and Central Pacific railroads and
operate the same for the people.
General VanWyck spoke quite
earnestly on the resolution. He
said that the Union Pacific was
able to pay its debt to the govern
ment, and that it would pay it if it
were compelled to do so. He said
tbat.the road was worth twice the
amount of its indebtedness and he
believed that Tather than allow the
road to pass into the hands of the
government the great railroad cor
porations which to-day control the
country would raise the money and
buy it themselves- The railroads
of the country would never allow
so formidable a competitor as the
government to enter the business.

It has been discovered by three
or four editors that if Governor
Boyd is reinstated, he will be nomi
nated sor congress next fall, and if
elected he will be a candidate before
the legislature for the senate next
fall. This is given out as a "straight
tip," but one hardly knows what to
believe, for several other knowing
journalists are each sure that Boyd
will bob up as the democratic nomi
nee for governor again. There are
also some papers booming Boyd as
a vice presidential candidate, but as
the constitution bars out men of
foreign birth on that speculation
will necessarily be confined to the
other offices named.

That the Royai Baking Powder is the oldest
and purest baking powder, and the greatest
in leavening strength.
That it is free from every injurious substance.
That it makes lighter, sweeter, more nutritious
and healthful food than any other.
The Royal Baking Powder Company refines its
own cream of tartar in its own mammoth re
finery, and thus insures its unvarying quality.
There is used in the manufacture of the Royal Baking
Powder more than half of all the cream of tartar consumed '
in the United States for all purposes. This is required -j
and must be chemically pure, and chemically pure cream
of tartar couid not be obtained in the markets of this coun
try or Europe, which necessitated the building of special
works, and the employment of special processes.
All other baking powders, when analyzed, show
traces of lime and sulphuric acid, which arise
from the impurities of the materials bought
in the market, which their manufacturers use.
This is why the Royal Baking Powder is the
only absolutely pure baking powder made.
