THE AltaCb, WEDNESDAY, PEimUAIiiT' 3, 1892.
The Royal Baking Powder De
dared Superior to all others.
The fact that Royal Baking Powtler is, in all respcrrs,
the lxst baking powder offeree! to tie public has been
established beyond question.
Prof. H. A. Mott, when employed by the U. S. Govern
ment to analyze the various baking povders of the murk r
to determine which was the best and most economical, at:; r
an extended investigation reported in livor of the-Royal
and it was adopted fr government use.
Prof. Mott has continued his examinations of baking
jxnvders sold at the present day, and affirms it as his de
liberate judgment, arrived at after most thorough research
and a careful examination of the principal brands of the
market, that the Royal is undoubtedly tl e purest ami niosr
reliable baking powder offered to the pub ic. Prof. Mott, in
his report, says:
"The Royal Raking Powder is absolutely pure, for I have
so found it in many tests made both r that company and
the U. S. Government.
"I will go still further and state that, because of the facili
ties that company have for obtaining peifectly pure cream
of tartar, and for other reasons dependent upon the proper
proportions ot the same, and the method of its preparation,
the Royal Baking Powder is undoubtedly the purest and
most reliable baking powder offered to the public.

Madisov. Wis., Feb. 3. The supreme
court of VVNronsin yestenliiy formally
panted leave to have suit hrought to test
the consitutionality of the apportionment
law passed at t lie late session of the legis
lature. ArKninents will -he heard next
Tuesday. The suit is brought by th
Republicans w ho claim that the apportion
ment disfranchises a vast number of vot
ers and doubly enfranchises liXJ.OOO more.
i hief .Inttice Cole's Order.
After reciting that on Jan. 15 S. W.
Pierce, district attorney of Adams county,
petitioned for leave to commence an action
in the name of the state to enjoin the sec
retary of state from calling elections of
state senators ur assemblymen in assembly
districts constituted by the apportionment
act of s;il, and that a similar petition was
presented on the same day by 1-ieonnrd
Lottridire, a citicn'of I.a Crosse county,
the order of Chief Justice Coie says:
The quest ion involved is one of grave public
concern, iiml if this court has jurisdiction to
determine it 1 He proposed action seems to be a
proper one in which to excreta; t ho original
jurisdiction of this court viidi-r tho constitu
tion. It is orderi- l, therefore, that leave be
(minted the nttoini y (rrnornl to bring such ac
tion. Questions of jurisdiction arc reserved
until tho relation or complaint is tiled. The
commencement of Mien action will necessarily
supersede the petitions of .Mes-rs. l'ierce and
lnttridirc. who are atlilierty.il' so advised, to
withdraw their re-pectivc petition uud the p.
pern accomiianyim; the same.
What the Democrats May Do.
If the law should be declared unconsti
tutional an extra session of the legislature
will be at once convened by the governor
and a new law passed, or the Democrats
will brio it suit to have the Republican
gerrymander of 1KS.1 declared void. The
court reserved the question of jurisdiction.
' Time to Lose.
If the supreme court refuses to take orig
inal jurisdiction an attempt willlie made
to start the suit in the circuit court. Great
baste is necessary, because if the law shall
lie declared unconstitutional an extra ses
sion of the legislature must lie convened
and another apportionment be made, else
the old Republican law of l8.r will be in
force. The Democrats will never consent
to hold an election under that law so long
as they have a Democratic governor to re
convene the legislature.
Attorneys In the Case
Senator JohnC. Spooner, Colonel George
W. llinl, ex-Attorney General Kstahrook.
nd District Attorney Pierce, of Adams
couuty, are representing the Republican
prosecut ion, together with Attorney Gen
eral O'Connor (Dem.), in his official capac
ity. General ISragg is alone defending the
law, but it is thought that Senator Vilas
will return to assist him.
to maKe a motn n that was m orfter.
Walker l.ud it all Laid Out.
He then read an argument intending to
show that the house rule giving the
speaker power t.i adjourn the house in the
absence of a iionun was unconstitu
tional, and the net of the speaker under it
was therefore invalid. The house, he
claimed, in the I bsence of a quorum could
adjourn from day to day, and take means
to comid the attendance of absent mem
bers. The speal.er having abandoned his
chair it was necessary to elect a speaker
pro tern, and Ca 'la ban of New Haven was
elected. Walker as justice of the peace
swearing Cnllal an in. Markley of New
Britain was elected clerk pro tern.

Chicago, Feb. 3. Yesterday was an

tendered their resignations which were
after seven hours consid-m ion rejected

was done notwithstanding that Greenli: t
admits that he and Morris have sold 1 1 e

is in many respects considi red n most u
Why They Sold Hitlr Mod:.
In it he says: 'My aim has U-eu to guide
the affairs of this company on a conserva
tive basis, and thereby assure not only a
permanent investment to stockholders but
also satisfy the trade. This policy, how
ever, has not been satisfactory to certain
si'H'kholdcrs, and for some time every
means litis been brought to bear with this
board to hold the market so as to shi.w ab
normal pre fits at ii to send out reports as
coming from authentic sources to the ef
fect that the earning of the company are
fabulous, and that we could easily pay two
or three times the amount of dividends we
are paying." 1 le then goes on to say that
finding protests against this policy una

stock, w hich he claims they had a perfect
right to do under the circumstances.
A ltlg Victory for (ireenhnt.
lie then refers to the pressure from
stockholders to ignore pledges to the trade,
a policy he declares to be disastrous, ami
in consequence of which he desires to be
relieved from all further responsibility.
The directors were fully prepared for the
action of Greenhut and Morris, and at once
passed n solutions expressing the utmost
confidence in the two gentlemen, and de
clining to accept their resignations. They
even went further and increased the pow
ers of the president by adopting another
resolution which induces the basis price of
the product of the company U cents a prsif

company to put down prices to such points

A number of stockholders waited about

NEW Yokk, Feb. 3. Carlisle W. Harris,
the young student charged with having
poisoned his wife, Helen Potts, was lost
night found guilty of murder in the first
degree by a jury of his peers. The case
has been one of the most sensational of its
kind in recent years, and has attracted
widespread interest. On Feb. 1, 1801,
Helen Potts, daughter of a wealthy rail
road contractor of Asbury Park, N. J.,
w ho was in attendance at a fashionable
boarding school in this city, died after a
brief illness. The death at "first was sup
posed to be due to natural cansef, and
preparations proceeded for the funeral.
Admitted ;iing Her Morphine.
Then, in some manner, the name of Car
lisle Harris, of Asbury Park, who was
studying medicine in- this city, liecanie
linked with that of the dead girl. The
whispers grew as time progressed until
finally t ho authorities in this city took
cognizance of the matter aud an autopsy
was held on the body of the young lady
whii h resulted in the' discovery that death
was due to morphine poisoning, Harris
was arrested and indicted, then the fact
leaked out that he and Miss Potts had been
clandestinely married. He admitted hav
ing prescribed morphine pills for bis wife
for some affection which he claimed she
was afllioted with, but stated that the
doses were unt sufficiently large to do her
Terrible UIow to His Mother.
About two weeks ago, the case came to
trial and has been progressing ever since.
Yesterday the summing up occupied most
of the day, and early last evening Recorder
Smith charged the jury. They went out
about li-.'-U) o'clock and at 10:4." returned a
verdict of murder in the first degree. The
verdict was very unexpected to the ac
cused, aud he broke down completely
when it was announced. His mother, who
has been constantly at his side during the
trial, was very much affected and created
a scene. She fell back in her chair,
