The ball given by St. Patrick's Benev
olent society at Armory hall last evening
was very largely attended, about 100
couple being present. Bleuer's orches
tra furnished excellent music, and a fine
supper 5wa8 served by F. J. Staasfcn.
The t ffuir was a success in every way.
A dozen or more raft pilots from vari
ous cities along the river met at Dubuque
twojweeks ago, a fact already alluded te
in The Anout. Their business was
secret. It was subsequently reported
that they had a scheme to buy all the
raft boats on the river, and to run them
en the co-operative plan. It turns out
that the meeting was called at the request
of the pilots formerly in the employ of
D. A. McDonald & Co., Lb Crosse. When
McDonald Bros, failed they owed these
pilots from $200 upward, says tbe Tele
graph, and the former now propose a com
promise with their creditors which con
templates a lease by tbem of the raft boats
acd the mill at LaCrosse which went
into the bands of tbe court when they
failed. Under tie proposed arrangement
the pilots are to get little or nothing.
They belicva Di n McDonald is able to
py tbem and they propose to libel every
McDonald boat Uitgoss into any por
on the upper Mississippi next season.
Under the ftdertJlaw their claims are
liens upon the bout no matter, bow often
she changes owners, acd they can tie her
her up until the r bills are paid, unless
bonds are given to secure any judgments
wbicii may be ol tained on the strength
of the claims. Tliey also propose a boy
colt. They propese, unless paid, to boy
cott the McDonald boats and tbe pilots
who accept situations on them. If a boat
runs upon a sand bar she will be left to
her fate. Passing- boats will nat see her.
All the raft pilots on the upper Mississip
pi are members of the association . It is
therefore difficult to see how McDonald
will be able to got pilots next season
unless he pays those he had last.
An exchange says: A one-armed negro
boy in Augusta has saved four persons
from drowning. This is nothing, how
ever, for Dr. Bull's Cough By rup has
saved thousands f -om consumption.

In the Xew York L, glHlatore.
The following, taken from "The O.l.
Paint and Drag Reporter," refers to a
new bill just introduced in tbe legislature
of New York state:
"The latest development in the baking
powder war, is tbe introduction of a bill
in the legislature of this state, requiring
all packages of baking powder which
contain ammonia, to be branded with a
statement of that fact in large type on
"Now while tbe ammonia contention is
on, why cannot the law give the public
tbe benefit of tbe doubt? Wholly un
prejudiced people are certainly not wil
ling to be dosed with the substance
acknowledged as a poison, simply be
cause scientists, some of whom are not
even physiologists, disagree as to its
A similar bill was introduced last April
but it is shrewdly surmised that the influ
ence of interested parties prevented its
passage. The provisions of the present
bill are so just that it prevably will soon
become a law.
This wi 1 be welcome news to the man
ufacturers of pure cream of tartar btking
powders, tbe most prominent of whom is
the Price Baking Powder company, of
Chicago and St. Louis, makers of Dr.
Price's Cream Baking pewder, who have
always made a strictly pure cream of tar
tar powder, notwithstanding the tempta
tions of adulteration suggested by tbe
enormous profi s realized by a New Yors
concern which uses ammonia, and adver
tises its powder as strictly pure, by
means or garbled official reports and ctr
tiflcates sigmd by its own employes,
dubbed professor, doctor or government
chemist, is fancy my dictate.
A bill compelling alum powders to be
conspicuously labelled as such, already
exists in Minnesota and it is to be hoped
in the interest of tbe consumer that simi
lar laws will soon be ended in o'her
states, for ammonia as well ns alum.
The following powders known to con
tain either ammonia or a kirn or both, will
be hS-cte1 by the proposed regulation:
