. 27 Difference
The "Royal" the Strongest and
Purest Baking Powder.
Whether any other baking powder is equal to
"Royal," let the official reports decide. When
the different powders were purchased on the open
market and examined by Prof. Chandler, of the
New-York Board of Health, the result showed that
Royal Baking Powder contained twenty-seven
per cent, greater strength than any other brand.
When compared in money value, this difference
would be as follows :
If one pound of Royal Baking Powder sells
for 50 cents,
One pound of no other powder is worth over
If another baking powder is forced upon you
by the grocer in place of the Royal, see that you
are charged the correspondingly lower price.

I'oints from Chancellor Mrdill's de
cision American liar Association on
Outrages to Aliens and the Remedy
Trextox, Aug. SC. Chancellor Mc
Gill's decision la the case of the Ftate
against the railroads forming the Read
ing coal combine was filed at a late hour
yesterday afternoon. The state's con ten-
tions that the lease of the Central to the
Port Heading is illegal; that the tripartite
agreement is in violation of law, ami the
eoniblue is against the policy of the state
because it tends to the monopoly of s pub
lic necessity, are all upheld and the pre
liminary injunction prayed for is granted,
lu the course of his decision the chancel
lor says that corporate bodies that engage
t in public oecupationR are created by the
. state upon the hypothesis that they will
"be a public lwnefit. They enjoy privileges
. that individuals cannot have.
Hone in Defiance of Law.
While the state confers special privi
leges upon t he favorites, it at the same time
' jxncts from them duties which also tend
to the public welfare. Such corporations
.hold their powers in trust for the public
weal. When, therefore, it appears that
'' such corporation is unmindful of its plain
duty and acts prejudicially to the public
In order to make undue gains and profits
1 for its stockholders, it uses its power in a
manner not contemplated by the law
which confers them. The chancellor takes
tip the law of 1883, which prohibits the
leasing of domestic to foreign corporations
without legislative sanction, and declares
it to be constitutional. It follows, he says,
that the lease to the IVrt Reading was
made not only without ieg.il sanction, but
in deHauco of an expressly prohibitory
Itulldinsl'p a Oreat Monopoly.
After deciding that the attorney general
has nil the power to bring suit that might
be necessury, the chancellor goes on to say
there are peculi-ir features in the Heading
transaction that evinC3 a public danger
much more serious than appears in the
mere transfer of corporate duties to per
formance by a foreign corporation. The
parties interested constitute two of the
ix great anthracite coal carriers of the
country. Through the leasing of the Le
high Valley three of these are controlled
by the combination. The proof shows
that there are localities iu the state which
formerly had the advantage of competi
tion between these allied roads, but now
are subject to the monopoly which this
lease a fi ords.
Jiot llonud to Wait Completion.
It is true that the co-operation of the
other coal roads has not leen secured. By
this lease only one competition is silenced,
' and only a little more than one-half of
the entire coal region is controlled. It is
only the second step in the direction of
monopoly, the first being the lease of the
Lehigh Valley railroad. It is to be re
membered, however, that the attorney
general may have his injunction when the
ultra vires act tends, or is of nature to
produce public iujury. lie is not required
to wait until all the monopoly possible is
created, or until all the injury possible is
Simply Iirnlseand Evasion.
The answers deny that either the Phila
delphia and Keadiug or the Central offers
any coal lands or product ,or deals in coal.
That it is true; but at the same time it is
admitted that the Heading owns a majori
ty of the capital stock of the Heading Coal
and Iron company, and that the Central
'owns a majority of the capital stock of the
Lehigh and Wilkesbarrn Coal company.
What is this, but a disguise and evasion t
Whatever may be the normal ownership
or the legal title, for the substantial pur
poses of the injury apprehended and the
Attorney general's complaint the railroad
companies stand as the owners of the coal
land in this court.
Doesn't Believe It Means Cheap Coal.
Upon preliminary hearings here, the
Chancellor continues, we have great coal
dealers complaining that they are not suf
ficiently paid for the product of their
mines, combining so that already they
control more than one-half of the coal
fields upon which this state depends for
f nelj and looking to the co-operation of
h remaining anthracite coal producers to
effect a change in the price of the output J
so iuhi iiiey may have more satisfactory
returns from their investments. To say
that these conditions do not tend to a dis
astrous monopoly in coal would be an in
sult to intelligence. It is possible that
such a monopoly may be used as the de
fendants suggest, to introduce economies
and cheapen coal, but it does violence to
our knowledge of human nature to expect
such a result.
Too it lliak to Take, Anyhow.
Iu conclusion the chancellor says: "The
commodity iu which these companies deal
is a necessary of life iu this stale. It is
the principal fuel of its homes and
factories. The slightest increase in its
price is felt by a population of hundreds
of thousands of persons, for their necessity
comjiels them to pay that increase. If
once a complete monopoly be established
by the destruction of competition, whether
that 1ms ihroiiL'h lease or co-operation, the
promoters aiul sharers in it may have
whatever price their cupidity suggests.

DISAGREE WITH THE PRESIDENT.
The American Har Committee on Viol
ence to Aliens.
SAKATOUA, X. Y-, Aug. At yester
day's session of the American Bar associa
tion, the report of the committee on iuter
tiational law as to whether "any legisla
tion by congress is desirable and practic
able to give the courts of the United
States jurisdiction over criminal prosecu
tions for acts of violence to the persons or
property of aliens committed by citizens
of the United States" was read The con
clusions set forth are concurred in by all
the members yet heard from, constituting
a majority; no dissent has thus far been
communicated. The committee recom
mends the passage of the following reso
lution: "That in the opinion of this
association it is unnecessary and inex
pedient that there should be any legisla
tion by congress to give to the federal
courts jurisdiction of crimes against the
persons and property of aliens in any case
in which such jurisdiction does not exist
as to similar cases in which a citizen is the
Quotes the Anglo-Saxon Principle.
One oljection to the enactment of such
a law ureil by the committee, "which if
not constitutional is at least fundamental,
is that this legislation violates the ancient
principle of Anglo-Saxon liberty, which
may be termed the localization of crime
with respect to trial and punishment.
From the earliest times, trial by vicinage
was the Englishman's birthright. It was
uot surrendered when the prosecution
was transferred from the lords paramount
to the crown. The accused was not
brought to the judges in London, but the
judges went down to try htm at his home,
and he was entitled to a jury of his neigh
bors." Say. It's a Newspaper Scheme.
The committee continues: "It is impos
sible to rontrovert the fact that this agita
tion in favor of federal legislation origi
nated, not in the thoughtful consideration
of lawyers and publicists, liut in ephemeral
newspaper discussion, which, usetul as it
is, must of necessity be impulsive, and
upon such subjects serve the purpose
rather of sugges; ion than conclusion. The
suggestion made by the president is of
course entitled to the utmost resp-ct both
by reason of his high office and also of his
acknowledged capacity as a statesman and
lawyer. There is, however, nothing in the
message which goes beyond calling the at
tention of congress to the subject."
A Summary of Objections.
In summarizing the objections to such
legislation the committee says that such
outrages as that at New Orleans have
occurred in the past, and such legislation
has never been suggested before, aud that
but six cases have ever occurred; that for
eign nations have only demanded indem
nity and uot punishment of the assailants;
that all complaints of the character under
discussion have been easily settled, and
that the method adopted in this country
of dealing with such cases is precisely
analogous to that adopted in England.
A Chit. warg lu Connecticut.
Noitwicil, Colin., Aug. 2ii. It is reported
that the disease from which Miss Francis
Wort"!', of this city, died Tuesday at the
home of relatives in Griswold was cholera.
Three physicians attended here but were
unable to save her. She had been well up
to Monday afternoon. -At 7 o'clock she
was violently attacked and died at 10
o'clock the next morning. Dr. Cassidy, of
this city, who attended her, said that her
illness was as genuine a case of Asiatic
cholera as ever seen in this climate.
Several other cases similar to, but not as
violeut as that of Miss Morgan, have
occurred within two weeks iu this region.

Kngland Kot So Safe as She Thinks
Rerlin Reported To Be Infected.
Washixotox, Aug. 26. The government
officials feel satisfied that they will be able
to prevent the bringing of cholera into this
country from European ports. They have
taken, they say, every precaution to pre
vent the spread of the disease. They still
regard the situation as one requiring strin
gent methods, and these they believe they
have adopted. Yesterday afternoon there
was a consultation held between Secretary
of State Foster and Assistant Secretary of
the Treasury Spaulding. Later they sent
for officials of the marine "hospital bureau
and discussed the question of an ab-olute
quarantine against vessels plying between
this country and the infected ports of
Wunts Absolute Quarantine.
It was not deemed nectssary at this
time to take such action, but it is more
than likely that it will be done before
many diiys. There is at least one official
who strongly urges an absolute quaran
tine, and he thinks it ought to be ordered
at once. Speaking on this yesterday, he
said: "It is thirty-seven years sincj the
United States have been visited by Asiatic
cholera aud these w ho remember it do not
want another experience with the dreaded
disease. No vessel should be allowed to
enter an American port from any port
where cholera prevails and no question of
inconvenience of tourists should euter into
the matter. It is not too late now
to act, but it may be in a few days."
The Terror Reported at Berlin.
London, Aug. 20. A dispatch from Ber
lin to The Telegraph says that the assis
tant of a well-known physician said yes
terday that there had been sixty-five
deaths from Asiatic cholera in the city
lately, but in all cases the true cause of
death had been kept secret. The story
probably is a canard.
Suspicious Cases at Gravesend.
London, Aug. 2. The stermship Gem

to have symptoms of the cholera. The

lie Is at Chicago Trying to Save the Or
der of the Iron Hall.
Indianapolis, Aug. 20. A dispatch
from William S. Ellenberger, of Chicago,
to receiver Failey yesterday states that
Supreme Justice Somerby, of the Iron
Hall, is in that city aud has called a meet
ing of the order is there. Ellenberg is an
officer of one of the Chicago branch of the
order, and the dispatch is doubtless in
tended to disclose Somerby's movements
to the officers of the court here. Account
ant Walker said that he knew that Som
erby intended going to Chicago, where he
expected to consult with W. K. Delano,
a deputy justice and have him assist in
the efforts to bold the Illinois and west
ern branches. He says that the plan of
Somerby and the other supreme officers is
to notify all the branches uot to pay a
cent to Reciever Failey, but to forward
the assessments to him.
o Letters for the Receiver.
Nearly a thousand letters had accumu
lated at the postoflice when the receiver
called for them Thursday, but the post
master refused to turn them over under
the order of the court. While the great
bulk of the letters were addressed to the
Iron Hall officers, it was clear that they
related to the business of the order, but
the postmaster doubted the legality of the
order for the transfer of private mails to
the receiver and telegraphed to the post
master general for instructions. This
afternoon a reply came saying that the
court had exceeded its authority and the
mail must be. dolivered to the persons to
whom it was addressed. Somerby's pri
vate secretary was notified of the decision
and the mail addressed to Somerby was
turned over to him.
Blaine and the Campaign. ,
Portland, Me., Aug. 26. Senator
Eugene Hale was seen ou his way to Saco

speaking in the campaign he said that if
he 1b well enough be would make two or
three speeches in Maine, beginning two
weeks from Monday. If not be will write
a ringing letter to the voters of this
state. Senator Hale's statement about
the letter to be written by Blaine corrobo

Reed on Monday, but confided secretly to
a few friends. Reed does not think Blaine
will make even a single speech, and there
in differs from Senator Hale.
