Actual analyses show the Royal Baking Powder to be 27 per cent.
stronger than other brands. It is best to use the Royal Baking Powder
only, for it makes the purest, lightest and sweetest food; but if your
grocer induces you to try another brand, see that he charges you the
correspondingly lower price.

The Movement Against Oliver.
At a late hour Tuesday night over a
thousand miners captured three locomo

Creek, and forced the engineers to take
them to Oliver Springs. About ninety
Jive convicts were employed in the mines
of the Cumberland coul company there.

The stockade was defended by fifty
picked guard and a company of thirty
eight militiamen. Two companies of Na
tional guards en route from Chattanooga
via Harriman were compelled to take side
track a few miles from Oliver' on account
of displaced rails.. Hundred of shot
were exchanged, but strange to say no
one was injured. Guards and militia see

The convicts, guards, and soldiers were
loaded on a train of flat cars, and the en

squad chased recreant heroes all day. On
all corners knots of men discussed the sit

be sent up at onco, but few of them teemed
Wining to go. Citizens were called to
bring shot guns and other arms to the
iimory for the purpose of arming the
recruit. It was feared that the miners
would kill the little knot of boys who had
gone to the seat of war, and their parents
were frantic as wild reports would come
into the city. At S:3 p. m. a company of
thirty volunteers picked from the best
families in town went to join the Chatta

Governor Buchanan has at last moved
and has ordered the Second regiment, con
sisting of four companies of infantry and
an artillery company, on the march. Fully
0 men will be ready to face the miners
today, and a bioody conflict may be ex
pected unless the miners change from
their present plans. They are flushed
with victory and egged on by politicians.
The troops are terrified and uncertain as
to results. Today will be a great day in
the civil war of Tennassee.

The governor claims to be able to have
6,000 men on the ground today at 10 o'clock.
Knozvllle Calls for Help.
Fear has seized upon Kuoxville. Her
people have wired messages broadcast
saying, "For God's sake do something, if
Buchanan has not got the grit to act, give
us federal aid." The five hundred farmed
there could not be armed and are awaiting
arms before they venture into the outlaw-,

sheriff of Roane county to take five hund
red men to the scene of trouble.

New Vor.K. Aug JS Washington lies
lug, cf lbs Chicago Staats Zeitung, ap
peared yesterday before the Democratic
national committee to presi ths scheme
for a western tendquarter at Chicago,
and made a long address in behalf cf tha
proj-.-ct. He said he had been selected to
act as spokesman of a committee appoint
ed by the Cook county DemocYatc commit
tee to urge the necessity of establishing a
branch of the nation! Democratic com
mittee at Chicago. He claimei that Illi
nois au J Wisconsin were not only doubt
ful states, but more they were probably
Democratic owing to local conditions
for this year at least.
Why He lielleve Tha.
These states could not -be counted for all
tini9 as Democratic, tut circumstances
bad arisen that had turned a great mass
of voters from the Republican party and
made these vctes go for a principle and
not for men. The German vote intbetwo
states held the balance of power, and
could'nt be influenced ly brass bands and
Greek lire. It was a reasoning, thinking
vote. What applied to Illinois and Wis
consin also applied in a measure to Mich
igan, Iowa, Nebraska ami Indiana. But
Illinois and Wisconsin had a special causa
of complaint against the Republicans.
After eulogizing the German as one who
voted for principles the speaker stated the
cause of the complaint, which was the
school question, personal liberty, and op
position to sumptuary legislation. He de
clared the German voter the most inde
pendent in America, and said that 011 this
parochial school question they were deter
mined to vote against the Ri-publicans.
The German Protestants numbered 5i,i1
35,X1 Republicans and 15,0m 1 emocrats
and of the Republicans a0,ui' could bo
assured to the Democratic ticket if the
proper effort was made, and in general be
argued tl t he proper effort was to estab
lish a br.-i of the national committee at
Whitney Objects to the Plan.
Wm. C. Whitney opposed Hesiug's plan
and a majority of the members present
were with him Final action on the mat
ter was postponed. A committee of West
Virginians presented their views on the
situation in that state and urged the
necessity of prompt and vigorous cam
paign work. The committee adjourned
to meet at 11 a. m. to-day. Among the
callers at Democratic headquarters were
Clark Howell, of Atlanta, Ga., and J. J.
Richardson, of Iowa, both national com
mitteemen. WISCONSIN REPUBLICANS.
