As the result of my tests, I find the Royal
Baking Powder superior to all the others
in every respect. It is entirely free from all
adulteration and unwholesome impurity, and in
baking it gives off a greater volume of leav

powder with which I am acquainted.

Indianapolis, Sept. . The special train
With Adlai E. Stevenson and party aboard
left here yesterday morning at 8 o'clock
for Marion. While the train was between
Fairmount and Summitville the engine
broke down, and from that hour uiitil 12
o'clock the party was "laid out" in the
country. The engine was finally fixed up
so it would move, and pulled into Marion
two hours late. At Anderson, which was
reached en route to Marion, several hun
dred people met the train and shook hands
with the candidate. The party consisted
of Stevenson, Hunter, Claude Matthews,
ex-Judge Xiblack, Mayor Sullivan, and
others, and the train was gayly decorated.
Big Turnout at Marion.
Arrived at Marion the reception wan all
that could be wished. A campaign club
with band met the party and escorted it
to the Spencer House. After dinner a re
ception was held, and after that the party
was escorted to Sweet zer's grove, where
8,000 people had gathered. Here Steven
son spoke for an hour on the issues of the
campaign. He began with a eulogy of
Cleveland and then took up the tariff, and
closed with a brief discussion of the
"force" bill from the Democratic stand
point. Meaning of the McKinley Bill.
In the course of his speech Stevenson
said: "It was said by Mr. McKinley that
the object of his bill was to check impor
tation. That sounded very well, but
what did it mean? I; simply meant to
keep you from buying goods in any other
country without paring an enormous
tariff tax when you brought them here.
Why was that law enacted? It was en
acted simply for the purpose of enabling
the nome manufacturer to compel you to
buy his goods, adding to the cost all the
amount of that tax that is laid on foreign
wares. It has taken a long time for the
people of this country to learn that a tariff
is a tax, but I think now they understand
that fact. The tariff is of no benefit to
the farmer or to the laboring man.
THE FARMER AND LABORER.
What the Democracy Believes Is Best
' for Them.
"The farmer sells his produce in the
open markets of the world. He should be
permitted to go into the markets of the
world to buy what his necessities and the
necessities of bis family demand without
paying high tribute to the protected
clnes of his own country. As to the
laboring man tariff has no effect upon his
wages except to diminish the purchasing
power of the wages he receives. If it were
true that a high tariff meant high wages
to the laborer then why is it that during
the thirty years that we have had a high
protective tariff the wages of the laboring
men have not increased year after year as
the tariff has increased CO, feO and 100 per
cent? We demand a reform of the tariff
so that the dollar you honestly earn will
bring to you aud yours at the least possi
ble price those things which are necessary
for your existence and comfort.
Doctrine of the Democracy.
"We wage no war upon manufacturers.
We wage no war on any business indus
try. We favor the introduction of free
raw material in the main for the reason
that it would give to our skilled workmen
in this country employment in working up
the raw material Into this finished product,
that this country may be able to compete
wHh all other countries as a manufactur
ing nation. We favor a reduction of the
tariff upon the necessities of life so that
substantial blessings w ill come to the peo
ple of this country who earn their bread
by toil. That is the doctrine of the Dem
Back Toward Indianapolis.
Judge Hunter then addressed the audi
ence after which the party started on its
return trip. The first stop was made at
Summitville, where about 3,500 people
were gathered at the station with a band.
Stevenson was enthusiastically greeted
and made a brief speech from the car plat
form. Alexandria was the next station
to stop at and a crowd of people had
gathered In the station. The vice presi
dential nominee made a short speech from
the station platform here and was loudly
cheered. At the conclusion the train went
on to Anderson where everybody got oft.
The Eonrth Speech for the Day.
The party was escorted to the Griffith
house by the , local campaign club and
took supper. In the evening Stevenson
made his fourth and last speech of the day
at the opera house, which was packed
with people who enme to hear him, while
the street in th vicinity was crowded
with those who could not get in. The
speech was much in the same lime as
t nose delivered by General Stevenson dur
ing the day. The special with its party
left Ani'.rixin nt 9 o'clock, reaching Indi
anapolis about 10:3M.
THEY CALLED ON CLEVELAND.
Three ltijj (inns of the New York State
Xtw York, Sept. 9. Among those who
called at I lie Victoria hotel y sterday to
confer with Cleveland were Henry Villard,
John R. Fellows, of New York; Chairman
Harrity, of the national committee; B. li.
Smalley, of Vermont; Secretary Sheerin,
of the national committee, and others.
But the most important calls were those
in the evening at 7:30 of Lieutenant Gov
ernor Sheehan, Richard Croker aud Ed
ward Murphy, who were shown at once to
the ex-president's room.
Ami Who Was the Sixth?
Hon. W. C. Whitney's messenger
awaited that gentleman's pleasure at the
hotel from early in the evening. He was
non-committal a to whether Whitney
was upstairs. It was said, however, that
he had been with the ex-preident since 2
o'clock in the afternoon. Politicians were
awaiting the outcome of the meeting of
the three great leaders of the New York
state Democracy with the presidential
candidate. Shortly after the arrival of
Croker, Sheeh-.n and Murphy six dis
tinguished Democrats were seated at din
ner, to what all orthodox Democrats hoped
Would be a love feast.
ltenults of the Meeting.
It turns out that Dickinson was the
sixth. The "dinner" was not concluded
until nfUT 11:31 p. m. and when the par
ticipants appeared tiny would say nothing
definite. From all that conld be gathered
from various sources the result was that
a "treaty of peace" was signed between
the two factions of the Democratic party
in tins stnte. It is said that Senator Hill
and his representatives have been placated
and that ti e senator will speak in the
coming campaign. Cleveland's plans are
not settled. He will probably remain at
the hotel until tonitcht and perhaps later.
WHY "BILLY" MASON IS PROUD.
The Prairie State Orator Talking to
New Yohk, Sept. 9. Hou. W. E. Mason,
of Chicago, is one of the most popular
orators the Republicans have "on the list."
Wednesday night he made a speech to the
Republicans of the Ninth assembly dis
trict. He said he voted for the McKinley
bill, and said he, "I have been proud of
it ever since. I knew at the time that the
Democrats would finally get enough grey
matter in the upper end of their anatomy
to appr eciate it. It has taken time, but
they are beginning to understand it.
They are waking up to the wisdom of that
A I'.illion Dollar Country.
"It was pussed by the 'billion dollar con
gress, as the Democrats sneeringly call
the lust Republican house. Well, it wasa
billion dollar congress, and this is a billion
dollar country. Few Demo rat seem to
realize that fact. Most f them think it is
a 2-cent country, and they want to run it
on a 2-cent principle."
"I do not wish to indulge in personali
ties," continued the speaker, "but Presi
dent Harrison won bis title of general on
the field of battle, where he fought for the
Union, and where General Stevenson got
his title is a mystery. It is said that be
holds it from the fact that he was once
captain of a base ball nine."
New Hampshire Democrats.
CoxcoKn, N. II., Sept. 9. The state
Democracy met yesterday and adopted a
platform re.ffirmiti the declaration of
principles adopted by the national Dem
ocracy at Chicago, ami assuring the party
that the best efforts will be made to give
the electorat vote of New Hampshire to
Cleveland and Stevenson. The belief is
expressed that the tariff laws should be
adjusted with rcierence to the best inter
ests of. the manufacturers aud consumers
alike. The following ticWet was nomi

WOE FOR M'LEOD.
Men on the Reading Cooking
Up a Strike.
WHILE HE SLEPT THE FOE WORKED
And He Wakes Vp to Find Organised
Labor in the Swim, as It Were A De
mand That Must Ue Acceded to or a
Bis; Strike Be Inaugurated What a
Man in the Secret Knows Trouble
Ahead that May Be a Good Deal Worse
Chicago, Sept. . A strike is being
prepared for on the whole system of the
Reading Railroad company. The strike,
if it takes place, will affect the brakeraen,
the conductors, the locomotive engiueers
and probably the telegraph operators.
The grievance committee which called on
President McLeod yesterday were in
structed to offer the alternative of a
strike. The grievances of the employes
are that they do not receive a wage in ac
cordance with the rates allowed on other
roads. They, therefore, ask that an in
crease of 20 per cent, be given, and that
the working day be reduced by one hour.
Mr I.eod lias Been Seen.
A telegram sent to an official of the old
Federation of Railway Employes at the
Grand Pacific yesterday read: "What aid
and co-operation can Chicago give the em
ployes of the Reading company in the
event of a strike?" At once an investiga
tion was made by the official in question,
and a reply was sent declaring that all
possible support, financially and otherwise,
might, be relied on. Yesterday afternoon
the official alluded to sent the following
telegram to a member of one of the em
ployes organizations in Buffalo: "Be kind
enough to give me results of your meeting
with President McLeod, being held today."
The following was the reply received about
7 o'clock last night: "The matter referred
to was presented to President McLeod to
day, and was held in abeyance by him
until he can investigate the claims."
Have a Perfect Organisation.
As the oflicai is identified with railroad
interests almost as closely as he is with
railroad labor organizations is name is
withheld. This is what he had to say
with regard to the subject "I am aware
of every circumstance connected with the
uuion of the men on the Reading road.
I tell you positively that the organization
has been going on for the last year and
that it is perfect. Of course there are a
few men who have not joined the union,
but that is a thing yo will Cud in every
labor body. The account which I have re
ceived from the representatives of the men
at Philadelphia show that President Mc
Leod bas at least recognized the union.
The President Hears Something.
"When the committee waited on him
yesterday evening he said he would not
acknowledge the right to existence of any
grievance committee. Then the members
cf the committee showed him the strength
of the organization which they represent
ed and he agreed to receive them this
evening. M.nd you, it is not only the
men on the Reading leased lines who are
organized. I speak of the organization
on the-main ro.-ul." As to the probability
of the strike taking place it is difficult to
make a forecast. If what the men Con
sider reasonable concessions be not made,
then the strike will be immediately de
clared. Ten Dnys Will Tell the Tale.
The reply of President McLeod will be
given to the grievance committee. If un
satisfactory it will be referred to the state
grievance committee, and after that it
must go to the national committee. All
this routine will in all likelihood occupy
ten days. Should the strike take place an
amalgamation of the orders throughout
the country is likely to follow.
