Royal Raking Powder
i;. Is Chemically. Pure.
The only Baking Powder yet found by chemical analysts 'to
lc entirely free from both lime and alum, and absolutely pure,
is the " Royal." This perfect purity results from the exclusive
use of cream of tartar specially refined and prepared by patent
processes which totally remove the tartrate of lime and other
impurities. The cost of this chemically pure cream of tartar is
much greater than any other, and it is used in no baking powder
except the " Royal."
University of Illinois,
Champaign, Aug. 5, 1891.
I have recently analyzed samples of the Royal Bak
ing Powder purchased by myself in open market,
and I find it invariably to be composed of wholesome
ingredients and entirely free from adulteration or im
' purities of any kind.

The I'inkerton Disagreement.
Washington', Aug. 5. There wasn't
any difficulty in reporting a programme
from the rul3 committee yesterday morn
ing iu the ho 11 ne, although there was no
more evidence that a majority wanted the
programme than there had been for a
week that a majority wanted one. Indeed
there was not as much evidence, for the
demand of the World's fair people was
based on a roll-call. Bat the rule came in
all right and the program me was carried
out with gre it unanimity by which it is
hoped to give the World's fair half what
it asked, nnd one-third of what will really
Iid llnsiness with a Rush.
It took no time at all to do the busi
ness and beat the World's fair people.
Catching caught the speaker's eye as
mod a the house was open for work and
reported a resolution from the rules
committee making the day a suspension
day. It was adopted. Holman offered a
rettolittio n which was also agreed to ex
tending the appropriations until Aug. 10.
Then the great objector got up to admin
ister to the World's fair people the gilded
pill provided by the committee of ten. It
-was to vote ou a question that the fair
people had been wuutiug a vote upon for
Was Aery Tantalizing, Very.
The motion was that the house should
reconsider its agreement to the $5,000,000
World's fnir appropriation, and with a
majority really against, that reconsidera
tion so they claim right there in the
bouse, the fair's friends had to vote for
the reconsideration. It was very tantaliz
ing, but a pledge is a pledge and they took
their medicine like little men and voted
to reconsider, to insist on disgreement
with the senate and to send the bill to
conference,' not without some debate,
however. The Republicans wanted to
know a few things.
Wanted Some Explanation.
Bingham, who had been a steadfast
friend of liberality to the fair, said that
personally he had no information about
the action of the advisory committee ex
cept that obtained from the public prew.
There was an agreement on the Repub
lican side of the iiouse that the appropria
tions should be extended for six tlays. All
preliminary proceedings had been con
curred iu by the Republicans iu order that
the sundry civil bill should go to confer
ence, lie thought the house was entitled
to some explanation of the agreement and
the plan proposed. Reillv read the agree
ment as printed in these dispatches. He
hoped there would be no obsterction, but
if there was closure could no doubt be ob
tained from the rules committee to compel
Not So Fast, Brother Kcilly.
McMillin said the terms of the agree
ment were well understood, but no one
had a right to speak for the committee on
rules. Future action could not be dis
counted. Dingley then desired to know
how a vote was to be had, and Dockery.
aotto voce, said that they would cross that
bridge when they came to it. Henderson
of Illinois could see nothing ahead but a
trap. It reminded him of the Bpider and
the fly. LaughterJ
REPUBLICAN POSITION STATED.
Mo - Obstruction the Line of Policy Dc
' dared The Darborow Hill.
Oates said the agreement implied that
no filibustering was to take place, and
AfcMillin said the Durborow bill would be
subject to amendment just the same as
any other bill. Diugley spoke for the Re
publicans. He said they were not a party
to auy deal and washed their hands of all
responsibility. The majority had selected
its method. Instead of bringing iu a rule
to enable the majority to express its will,
it bad compromised. Republicans would
not interpoaw , any objections. Whatever
might bi(itne result the responsibility
must rest Wi tii the majority. He closed by
saying: '"Accept it and go home." Hol
man's motion was tnen adopted 141
to 40. .
Reilly tbaa offered a resolution provid
ing that the house would at 1 p. m. today
vote ou the Durborow bill, with the appro
priation reduced to $J,50,(Xkl, all filibus
tering barred, liailey spoke against the
resolution, but was hoeless of gaining his
point. He said, however, that it violated
the caucus agreement, as that did not pro
vide for closure. To appropriate this
money was legislative burglary. After
some other argument a vote on the resolu
tion was reached, and it was carried 1ST
to 7 and the house went into committee
on the Durborow bill with Dockery in the
chair. Then Holman grew liberal, and
moved to amend by appropriating $50,000
for an Indian exhibit, (50,000 for a woman's
industrial exhibit, and $50,000 for an ex
hibit by the colored race. Rejected.
Prohibition Comes t'p Again.
One or two other amendments were neg
atived and then Atkinson offered au
amendment to prohibit tue sale of intox
icating liquors on the exposition grounds,
and making this a condition precedent to
Iho " appropriation. Pickler moved to
mend by prohibiting t he sale of liquor in
fhe house of representatives restaurant.
Laughter. Tickler said that an inves
tigating committee hail considered the
subject of members drinking and he
thought the amendment was eutiiely in
order. Self-preservation was the lirst law
of nature. Buchanan of New Jersey de
fended the statesmen against Pickler's
imputation, and wanted to know why
Pickler proposed his amendment.
A Little One on liutler.
Pickler said the subject had seemed to
the bouse worthy of investigation. Butler
of Iowa criticised Pickler for his action, in
profit-ring such an amendment.
Pickler t-aid: "Did you not swear before
the investigating committee that you had
seen members drunk on the floor t"
Butler replied: I was compiled to tell
the truth under oath." Shouts of
Dickerson of Kentucky inquired if that
was the only time that the member from
Iowa told the truth, laughter.
Other Amendments Defeated.
Amendments allowing the World's fair
management to have coined at their own
expense bullion to the extent of $5,000,000
which it was said would net the fair $4,000,
O00;and requiring that imported articles for
exhibition have the prices marked upon
them in American money minus the tariff,
were disagreed to and this ended the day's
work. One reason that the friends of the
fair accepted this scheme other
than the old adage that lialf
a loaf is better than no bread is that some
further compromise may yet be effected
through the influence of the senate by
which the appropriation can be increased
Senate will Not Object.
Washington, Aug. 5. The probabilities
for the passage by the senate of the Dur
borow World's fair bill in its amended
form, with the amount reduced from $5,
000,009 to $2,500,000, are greatly in favor of
such action, and unless the bill is rejected
by the house or that body does not act lu
a manner tiiat a majority of senators be
lieve to be a breach of good faith, the bill
will be sent to the president within the
next few days. Expressions of opinion
obtained from a number of senators who
voted for the (appropriation of $5,000,000,
showed that they were practically unan
imous in their intention to vote for the
Durborow bill in its amended shape.
The Senate Has a Say.
That the senate understands that it
holds the key to the situation is shown by
its action yesterday in adjourning until 2
o'clock this afternoon, an hour after the
time set by the house for voting on the
Durborow bill, and it is likely that the
senate will dt lay the appointment of its
confer rees on the sundry civil bill until
after the house has expressed itself on the
fair appropriation. Senators do not hesi
tate to say that the rejection of the appro
priation by the iiouse may result in an
indefinite prolongation of the present ses
sion through the instrumentality of the
May Prolong; the session Yet.
lbe oriel's lair sentiment is very
strong in the senate so strong that many
senators have resolved to do all in their
power to prevent an ending of the session
until some relief is afforded the exposi
tion. The federal constitution provides
that neither house of congress shall ad
journ for more than three days without
the consent of the other, and through this
clause the senate is given power to frus
trate any attempt of the house to adjourn
finally, it is an interesting parliamentary
situat ion, and its interest will probably be
intensified if the house acts on the fair
appropriation in a manner not agreeable
to the senate.
May Adjonrn Today.
The latest about adjournment is that in
deference to the urgent request of Presi
dent Harrison congress will adjourn either
late tonight or early tomorrow morning.
The president made known his desire for
au immediate adjournment to Speaker
Crisp in au interview at the White House
yesterday morning, basing the request
upon the condition of Mrs. Harrison's
health, which makes it necessary for her
husband to join her without delay. Mrs.
Harrison is not critically ill, but is in an
exceedingly nervous condition, and the
president is naturally anxious to be at ber

Homestead, Pa., Aug. 5. Clubs and
stones took the place of moral suasion in
the strike at Dnquesne yesterday, and not
until the military was called upon, was
anything like order restored. The trouble
began shortly after 7 o'clock, when thirty
men employed in the mechanical depart
ment put in an appearance. These men
were among those who the day previous
signed an agreement to return to work at
the companp's terms. Supt. Morrison or
dered Foreman Wm. Millslagle to put
thirty men at work yesterday morning,
making repairs. The men selected for
the work were on hand promptly at 7
o'clock, but they didn't go to work.
Met a Mob of Strikers.
Kear the entrance to the mill they were
met by a crowd of nearly 300 Duquesne
and Homestead strikers, the latter having
gone from this place dnring the night.
Twelve deputy sheriffs endeavored to keep
back the mob in order that the thirty
machanics might pass into the works, but
they were soon overpowered and com
pelled to retreat. In the struggle some of
the deputies had their maces taken from
them. Seeing that to further resist the
mob wonld ;result in bloodshed, the little
band of workmen retreated in good order.
MillslaKle Defies the Mob.
A few minutes later Foreman Millslagle
attempted to reach the mill gate. He
found himself surrounded by a howling,
lawless mob, but the foreman, with club
in hand, defied the strikers. Near the
gate he was confronted by a dozen men.
They told him that if he did not turn
back he would be killed. Half a dozen
deputies then ran to his rescue. They
begged of Millslagle to return to his home.
Reluctantly he consented and started for
his residence, which stands on the edge of
a hill back of the works.
Itrutal Assault on the Foreman.
He was followed by three men, one of
them a Homestead steel worker. When
he reached a narrow pathway, running
along the edge of a deep ravine, the Home
steader ran up behind him and dealt him
a terrible blow on the back of the head.
Millslagle was rendered unconscious and
rolled to the bottom of the ravine. He
was picked up by friends and taken to his
home, where he soon recovered. The as
sault was witnessed by the mob of strik
ers, who cheered when th?y saw Millslagle
THE MILITIA TO THE RESCUE.
A Regiment of State Guards Comes Iuto
the Fray at Double Quick.
Boss Carpenter Boyce then attempted to
get into the mill, and succeeded with the
help of the deputies. The mob threatened
to break down the gate to get at Boyce,
but just at this moment cauvht sight of a
regiment of militia sweeping down upon
them iu double-quick time. The sight of
the blue coats and the glistening bayonets
caused the mob to scatter in all directions.
In a few minutes the entire Sixteenth reg
iment, uuder command of Colonel Hu
lings, was in possession of the place.
Amused Themselves with Abuse.
Colonel Hillings ordered the captains of
the respective companies to place men on
all streets leading to the mill, with orders
to allow no one to pass without written
orders. Details were also sent to Oliver
and Cochran stations, while a full com
pany took possession of the road iu front
of the works. Fiuuing themselves a bay,
the strikers gathered on the hill above the
town where they contented themselves
with hurling vile imprecations on the
heads of those below.
Strike at luquesne Lost.
Carnegie's employes have lost the strike
at Duquesne, as 510 of the men have signed
agreements to return to work next Mon
day. Fully half this number are Amalga
mated men, who iu order not to lose their
places have deserted tiieir organization.
More Bailings and Arrests.
PlTTSBl'ItG, Aug. 5. Potter, Dovey, and
McConnell were before Judge Ewing yes
terday to answer the charge of murder
preferred by the strikers. Counsel for the
strikers said they had no objection to bail
in the cases, and it was fixed at $10,000
each, and immediately given. Bowen, the
striker who was so turbulent Wednes
day, was bailed in $1,000 for un
lawful assemblage. - Edward Burke, an
other turbulent striker, was arrested on
the same charge as Boweu's and other ar
rests will be made. Fred Primer, one of
the Piukertons for whom warrants were
