Royal' Baking Powder
Has no Equal.
The Royal Baking Powder will make sweeter, lighter, finer-flavored
and more wholesome bread, biscuit and cal:e than any other leavening
agent. It is of higher strength, and therefore goes further in work and
is more economical. All government and scientific tests go to show
this. Royal Baking Powder as a leavening agent is absolutely without
Rush Medical College, Chicago.
"As the result of my tests I find the.Royal
Baking Powder superior to all the others in every
respect. It is entirely free from all adulteration
and unwholesome impurity, and in baking it
gives oft" a greater volume of havening gas than
any other powder. It is there "ore not only the
purest but also the strongest powder with which
I am acquainted.
"WALTER S. HAINES, M. IX," Prof, of Chemistry.

"The Royal Baking Towdcr, wljch tests the highest
in strength, is free from lime, alum, lime phosphates or
other adulterations. Its superlative purity, the entire
wliolesomencss of its ingredients, the scientific manner
in which they are combined, together with its much
greater strength, make the Royal t nquestionably supe
rior to any other baking powder.

New Yop.K. Nov. US. The fullest le
BcriptioD ot the fiiiht between the Chilians
and the crew of the Baltimore has come
from one of the crew of that .vessel to a
friend in Brooklyn. The letter is dated
Valparaiso, Oct. 20, and says: "After the
fall of Valparaiso, on account of the bit
ter feeling exist in is against the United
States by the Chillians it was thought
advisable not to give liberty onshore to
our crew; but from representations made
by citizens and others that all ill-feeling
Lad passed away a liberty party was ient
on shore at 1:30 p. ni. Oct. 10. At 5 p. ni.
ur whaleboat brought the uews that our
men had been attacked and that one man
had been killed and several badly cut up.
At 6 p. tn. oue of our men, Jerry Ander
on, was brought c IT in a shore boat with
two stab wound in the back. He was in
a critical condition, but is now recover
ing. A Thoroughly rremelltateil Attnrk.
"Being a powerful man, he fought, for
an hour keeping off a crowd of his as
sailants, but was finally hit in the mouth
T?ith a bricK which knocked him down
and he was stabbed while on the ground.
It appears It was an understood thing
among the Chilians, many of whom had
just been discharged from the army and
navy, to attack our men the first time
they came on shore. As soon as our men
landed I hey were told by several parties
that they bad better keep together, as an
attack upon thorn had b:en- arranged.
Although our men hoped and wished the
liberty to pa off quietly, some of them
thought it prudeut timler the circum
stances to carry weapons, so if they were
attacked they would not tve wholly un
prepared to defend themselves.
The Police As .Mob Auxiliaries.
"Oar men kept well together until be
tween 4 and 6 o'clock, when everything
appearing pleasant they broke up into
small squads, going in different directions.
It was now that the Chilians opened out
and in true Spanish-American sty lea mob
would attack our small parties of one or
two men. The result was: Boatswain's
Mate Charles Riggin,killed,six in hospital
and thirty-one in jail. The police who are
uniformed as soldiers and carry rifles,
acted as auxiliaries to the mob. Kiggin
received bis death shot from the police.
The Attack on Klcclu.
"It occurred as follows: Kiggin was at
tacked by a mob and attempted to get
away. He ran for a horse car and suc
ceeded in getting on the platform, but be
fore he could get inside he was dragged
off and severely cut in three places, lie
fell in the street and was unable to move.
They left Urn where he fell. So great
was the terror of the people caused by the
mob that no one would assist him. One
of our men, Jerry Johnson, heard that
Kiggin was lying in the street badly
wounded, and at once wcut to his assist
ance. He fojnd Iliggiu still breathing:.
He got a glass of brandy and poured down
bis throat, which revived him a little.
SHOT IN THE THROAT.
The Dastardly Work of the Valparaiso
"Johnson asked him if he he knew him.
ItigKiu answered: 'Yes, Johnson. For
God's sake get me out of this before they
murder me.' Johnson picked him up nnd
was carrying him awny, when a crowd,
balf soldier-police and halt mob, rushed
on him. A dozen or more shots were
fired, one of which passed through the
knot of Johnson's handkerchief and
struck Kiggin in the throat. In the ex
citement Johnson lost his hold of Kiggin.
How he got clear of the mob he cannot ex
plain. This mob threw Kiggin into a
push cart and dragged him to the mole.
An Effective Remonstrance.
"When Cuptain Potter, of the American
barkentine William Phillips, saw a man
mounted on the cart astride of Kiggin,
tvtraoruing the' crowd, berating the
'VutiUi i's' and looting the poor follow who
lay nude him with his life's blood ebbing
n'.vay, I'e remonstrated. Finally a squad
of mounted police came ami Kiggin was
taken to the hospital, where he dierl that
night. Auother of our meu, John Hamil
ton, was surrounded by the inoh and
stoned until he dropped insensible, ami
was then stabbed while down. He now
lies at the hosp;4al. with little hope of
:ive the "Yankees' no Show.
"Our men had no s!i..; they were at
tacked with Btones and b.-icks wherttver
seen. If they sought refuge in house or
saloon, they were pu-hed out and the
door closed against them, the people were
so afraid of the mob. Our men fought
while they were on their feet and did the
best tin y could, as three Chilians now iu a
hospital, and a number of the mob who
were carried to the homes can attest; but
our :nei were so outnumbered that the
odds were too much for them. The
authorities on kliore are holding all our
men on whom weapons were found. It is
evidiutly their intention to bring charges
ag;.in-t them in order to justify the ho
t ion of the police.
Ilerimiitatirn in Vttvor of the Vrrnrh.
The universal test imony of disinter
ested people is that our men were solier
and peiiceab.e, and only relailiated when
attackei. Monday, t ha VJi h, at !.3J a in.
we sent a funeral partv ot thirty man on
shore to bury poor Kiggin. The party
was liti ited to thirty men by the author

The Senator's Seat To Be Made
A LETTER FROM SENATOR SHEBHAB
The Itepuhliran State Committee Ad
vised That tke Legislature Should Take
the First Step, and What That St j
Should Ite Senator Hoar Adds a I' w
Observa'ions The Matter Consider? .1
by the Slate Committee A Content of
the Seat as Sure as Fate.
Cleveland, Nov. Senator Slur
man has written the following U tter to
Hon. I V. King, chairman of the Re
publican stale committee, regarding t l.e
proposition to unseat Senator l'.rice lor
alleged non residence in Ohio:
".MR. Dear Slit: My attention has been
frequently called to the expedience :u;d
tbe best mode of presenting to the senate
of the United States the question of the
eligibility of Calvin S. Urica tota seat iu
that body, lie now holds a certificate of
the governor of Ohio of his election by
the last legislature in due form, and cn
the prima facie evidence will no doubt,
according to the uniform tis.igg of the
senate, ba sworn in on fhe first day of the
session and take his seat. This will not.
in the least determine his right to his
seat if it can be shown that he was no' an
inhabitant of Ohio when he was elected.
Can't Prevent Him Taking His Srat.
It is clear that any declaration by me
or any one that lie was not such au inha!)
itant will not prevent his taking a seat,
and such a declaration by me would i:rt
only be futile but eminently iiiproiei-, as
I have to pass judicially on the question
after full hearing and trial. It seems to
nie that if the contest isto be inaugurated
before the next Ohio legislature acts it
ought to be done by a memorial of the
Republican slate committee to the sen
ate. Such a memorial would give the -en-ate
an opportunity to institute an iuijUiiy
into the I act of his ineligibility.
The Proper Way to Fi oeeed.
''I'l my judgment, a joint resolution if
the two houses, when I hey meet in Jan
uary, is the only formal and effective wny
of securing an investigation. The ques
tion would then arise whether the legis
lature may not assume that a vacancy ex
ists by reason of Mr. lirice's ineligibility,
and eiect a senator in his place who can
contest the matter and present ami mar
shal the testimony taken. Please j:ive
your view of the matter nnd take such
cotir-e as you may deem advisable. Very
truly yours, John Sherman."
An Opinion of senator Hoar.
Senator Sherman inclosed in his letter
an abstract of a letter received by him
from Senator Hoar, who is chairman of
the senate committee on privileges und
elections, as follows:
"1 think the senate will be very unwill
ing to depart from precedents in the tj il
I.itiu and Shields cases aud those cite 1 by
Mr. Douglas in his argument, in the latter
case. In ail these cases the person claim
ing the seat was sworn in and
th matter considered on its lneriis
afterward. It may lie said, very
plausibly, that the executive cerlifica:
is prima facie evidence only of the formal
ity of a lawful election by the legislature
and not of the qualifications of t he per
son, which the governor would know
nothing about. On the other band, it
might be replied, with equal plausibility,
that the formality of a due ami lawful
election by the legislature ought to he
prima facie evidence of t he eligibility of
the person elected Otherwise a third of
the sen it e might be kept ont of their seats
by ii ti foil tided ohj 'Clioiis."
There is scarcely a doubt that the Re
publican, state committee will follow the
outline of proceedings suggested by Sena
THE STATE COMMITTEE MEETS.
Conclusion Itearlx u 1 hat Senator Sher
man la Kiglit In the Matter.
Con Mills. O., Nov. 28 In response to
the call of Chairman King, the Republi
can State Ceutral committee assembled
here in the Lincoln league room last
night to discuss plans for keeping Cal'viu
S. Brics out of the United States senate
to which he was elected by the Democrats.
The early part of the evening was spent
in considering the various steps ibecessary
to keep ISrice from taking the oat-h of of
fice. However, afier two hours had thus
been spent the majority came to the ten
elusion that no legal power could prevent
him from taking that oath, as the senate
could not properly act in his case until ha
had beo.nio a member of that body.
What Ioe "Inhabitant" Mean?
The definition of "inhabitant" accord
ing to the Ohio constitution was 'argued
at length, aud one opinion was advanced
by Representative Griffin that. ISrice was
properly a resident of Ohio. As the meet
ing waxed warm and heavy it was de
cided to go into executive session and the
newspaper men were barred out. When
at midnight, they adjoured it was learned
that one resolution bad been adopted aud
that with unanimity.
Will Investigate the Question.
It placed upon the shoulders of George
K. Nash the duty of investigating the
question of eligibility of IJrice to the sen
atorial beat and also that of conferring
with Senator Sherman upon senate rules.
Ifsnything cm be done action must be
immediate, as congress convenes oue week
from Monday. Should IJrice take his
seat and it is hardly a question but. that
he shall the legislature will adopt vigor
ous measure to oust him
