Considerable energy Is becoming
manifest at St. Louis in the matter of river
transportation, which should arouse our
people to their interests. A new graiu
ine lias just been inaugurated under tho
auspices of the St. Louis, Iron Mountain
Southern and Wabaslu and Missouri
,'aciflc, by which the grain line leaves St.
Louis over the Iron Mountain road, passes
over that road to Belmont on the Missis
sippi, 190 miles from St. Louis, and is ship
ped thence by barge to New Orleans. The
Mississippi River Transportation company
has been oiganized for the purpose
of establishing a bargo lino between
St. Louis and Kansas City, and will put on
a large fleet early in tho spring. An asso
ciate organization has also been formed
tho Missouri Hiver Improvement company
having for its object the procurement
from congress of appropriations tor the im
provement of tho Missouri river. The St.
Louis and New Orleans Transportation
company will have twenty barges with a
capacity of 00,000 bushels each in commis
sion early iu the spring, and will, it ia ex
pected, nearly double the grain movement
between tho two cities. The movement, as
before stated in The Bulletin, aggregated
13,000,000 bushels the present year, against
6,174,8:J3 bushels last year.
The republican Union of Missouri has
ssued a call for a national convention of
colored men to bo held at Washington on
the third ot March, 18S1. The organization
embraces in its membership tho most
prominent and influential negroes of St.
Louis. The circular is strong and pointed
and readi thus : "Tho negro has reached a
significant juncture in citizenship, and the
hour is propitious for the enhancement of
that citizenship. Our vote is an indispen
sable factor. It can grant triumph or se
cure defeat. It 6hould receive tho respect
due its power. Whatever is less is not
the dignity of citizenship; whatever is less
than citizenship is peonage and serf
dom. With our party in power our ad
vancement should bo assured. Wise coun
sel and prompt action is needed. The fair
recognition of our race in the civil regula
tions of the government is to be accom
plished. Again ia an entire section the
new amendments aro practically abrogated,
labor is unremuueratcu, life and property
aro insecure, and terroisni prostitutes the
American ballot. With a view to the im
portance of these great questions and tho
opportunity to make representation of our
cause, the republican Union of Missouri
urgently call upon tho patriotic and public
spirited negro men of the United States to
assemble in council at Washington city
March a, 1891."

INO TESTIMONY OK SCIENTIFIC MEN.
New York Tlmea.
Within the past two years, a bitter con
troversy has been waged between manu
facturers, on account of the use of alum as
a cheap substitute for cream of tartar, by
many manufactures of baking powders.
The handsome profits yielded by using tho
substitute have induced dealers as well as
manufacturers to push them into the hands
of consumers, sometimes under definite
brands, freniiently by weighing out in bulk
w ithout any distinguished name.
Are such powders wholesome? The Royal
Making Powder Co., who make a cream of
tartar baking powder, declared that they
are injurious to the public health, while
others who make alum powders claim that
they are not. The whole matter as to the
effects of these alum powders, has finally
been brought into the courts, and the case
was tried in the Superior Court of New
York city before Chiet-Justicc Sedgwick,
reported subsantially as follows in the "N.
CONCLUSIONS OV A MTTLB THOIT.I.E UK-
TWEEX A CnKMIET AND AN EDITOR.
Tho suit of Dr. Henry A. Mott against
Jabez Burns, has brought to light the fact
that this country produces at least forty-
two different kinds of baking powders.
Neither Burns nor Mott has been found
guilty of making the baking powders, but
Burns, who is the editor of a periodical
called tho Spice Mill, has been severely
mulcted for libel in his efforts to make
his paper spicy. Dr. Mott, it appears, is a
chemist, and at one time was employed by
tho United States government to analyze
different specimens of baking powder
which had been recommended for adoption
to the Iudian Bureau. Dr. Mott reported
in favor of tho cream of tartar baking pow
ders for the Indians, and against the alum
baking powders. The chemist analyzed
forty-two kinds of baking powders.
The jury were out about half an hour.
Then they came in with a verdict awarding
Dr. Mott $S,000, to which the court mado
an additional allowance of flfiO."
As the public have a large interest in the
wholesomcness of whatever it is called upon
to uso as food, the following extracts are
introduced from tho testimony of some of
the prominent men as to the injurious ef
fects of alum powders.
Q. Were you employed by the U. S
A. I was, sir; was employed as chemist.
to analyze all the articles of food, to ex
press an opinion as to the analysis of thei
healthfulncss and purity.
Q. Please tell the jury the baking pow
dersthat you examined while in the em
ploy of tho government?
A. It would be difficult to remember
them all; I coulu reter to my nooks; I ex
amincd twenty-eight powders; was given
sixteen at first.
BY THE COURT!
Give your best recollection.
Q. And one of the powders included was
"Dooley's Baking Powder?"
A. Yes, sir.

celsior," "ChartreV," "Giant's," "Giant."
Q. Recurring to the question that has
been asked you upon this suit the result
of these examinations which you have
made is it your opinion that alum in these
various compounds, in baking powders
such as you have examined, is injurious?
A. It is my opinion, based upon actual
experiments on living animals. '

Q. Without using any nicety of chemi
cal terms, what is your opinion about tho
use ot alum in a baking powder, in combi
nation with bicarbonato soda and other
ingredients, for raising bread whether in
jurious or not?
A. I think it is dangerous to the di
gestive organs, and liable to produce
serious disturbance of the liver of the in-
lividual making use of such powders.

A. I have; I took a portion of this pow
der and mixed it with flour in the directed
proportions, and baked a small loaf with it;
then I soaked this loaf the interior part
of itiu cold water, and made an extract,

Q. Why do you say from what system .
of reasoning do you mako it out that be

alumina, when it gets into the stomach and
reacts on tho organs, aro the same ; thiH
hydrate of alumiua meets ia the stomach
the gastric juices, and reacts with them tho
same as alum would; it forms, in fact, a
kind of alum in the stomach with those
acids, and whatever alum would do, it

and from reading; I should think the
opinion was that alum, or any compound of
