THE AliGUS, WFDNESDAT, KOVEMUEli 23, 1892
Against the impositions of a company of females, who,
under the lead of a male agent, are infesting dif
ferent sections of the country, performing a trick
which .they pretend is a test of baking powders.
It having been intimated that these persons are
the paid agents of the Royal Baking Powder Com
pany, this is to advise all concerned that this Com
pany has no relation whatever to them, that their
so-called test is a sham, and that the females are in
structed and employed to perform these tricks, and
make false statements in all kitchens to which they
can gain access, by concerns who are trying to palm
off upon housekeepers an inferior brand of baking
powder through the operation of fallacious and de
The Royal Baking Powder Company in no case
employs such agents, and whenever the name of.
this Company is used to gain entrance to houses,
the applicant, no matter how respectable in appear
ance, should be regarded and treated as an imposter.

BEltLlK, Nov. 23. The reichstag the
Grrtnan parliament which is to wrestle
with the military question that now claims
the attention of the empire, was opened
yesterday by the emperor in person. Tiie
itersaal of the royal cawtle at this cere
mony showed probably the mont impressive
spectacle that has been seen In Europe for
years. The area around the throne was
thronged with deputies and officers in theii
gorgeous rolies and uniforms. The scarlet
coats of the Knights of St. John and the
brilliant vestments of the Catholic prelates
mingled with tbe sober Genera gowns of
the Lutherans and the richly embroidered
uniforms of the heralds, relieved by the
plain black and white of the regulation
evening dress, formed a picture that will
never I effaced from the numerics of
The Kainer't Retluur Comes.
The sudden cessation of con venation and
the direction of general attention to the
great doors indicated the arrival of three
who were the central attraction of alL
Amid an impressive silence Count Caprivi
entered, lie was attired in the white nri
form of a general, his breust covered with
decorations and medals. He was immedi
ately followed by the federal council and
he retired to tbe left cf the throne beside
the president minister of Bavaria, Baron
on Crail.sheim. Following came the
veteran company of the castle guard.
The historical giants of the Prussian army
led the imperial procession and filed be
tween the throne aud the deputies a fact
which caused a socialist present to whisjxr
to his neighbors that it was a suggestive
incident, ticarlet coated pages with pow
dered hair, and handsome young sprigs of
KalHer llilly'a Imposing Appearance.
After them came the household officials
and ministers, with a bevy of generuls in
(corneous uniforms. Among them was
borne a cushion of cloth of gold supporting
the royal insignia. Then camo the em
peror, wearing a silver helmet with the
imperial eajje, a crimson velvet mantle
with a black eage embroidered on it, and a
white uniform. The emperor, as he slowly
advanced toward the throne, presented a
most imposing and dignified appearance.
The president of the reichstag, Uorr Von
Levetzow, culled for cheers for the emperor
and his call was answered with a force that
sliook the h ill. The emperor smiled and
bowed his acknowledgements. Behind the
emjieror c.'.mo tiie priuces of the federation,
attired in gorgeous robes, embroidered
t. nu crimson eages anu in silver helmets.
Grouped Around the Throne.
The procession was grouped instantly
with military precision round the throne.
The emperor was seated upon a dais, ap
proached by three steps which were car
peted with purple velvet and canopied with
cloth of gold, emblazoned with black
eagles. At the right hund of the throne
were the empress and crown prince and be
hind them tlio chief representatives of the
reigning family, all wearing tbe insignia
of the Order of the Black Eagle. They
weresnrrouiiiled by generals of the army
bearing the sword of the realm, the sceptre
and ball. General Schieflein, flanked by
two generals with drawn swords, carried
the banner of tbe realm. Supported by
Field Marshal General von Blumenthal,
baton in hand, the emperor advanced two
steps and C'ouut Capri vi, with profound
obeisance, handed the speech to Lira. The
emperor received it with a bow uud pro
ceeded to read it In a cieur, resonant voice.
SUBSTANCE OF THE SPEECH.
It Calls All Germany to Arms In Case f
The kaiser's speech was a plea for the
passage of the military bill, which calls
into military service alout every subject of
the empire. This is not, the emperor said,
because of imminent war, but to 1 ready.

Brussels, Not. 23. The international
monetary conference was opened shortl;
ifter S o'clock yesterday afternoon by the
Belgian premier, M. lJeeraaert, in the Mar
ble hall of the Palais des Academies. After
paying his compliments to the delegates M.
Beernaert gave an elaborate resume of the
history of tho precious metals during tba
present century, clearly indicating by his
interpretation of events early in the seven
ties that he stood firmly upon the pl.itfoim
of bi metallism. He spoke of the sinifi
Mnce of the Latin Union and the rain ef
forts of the states composing it to steady
the relations of gold and silver. The prin
3i pie of the Latin Union he regarded as in
ruhserable, but its benefits in practice had
been counterbalanced by lack of support
rrom the majority of the groat commerci il
Uncle Sam 1 the Troposer.
It was in the direction of international
understanding that a soluti an of the mcn-
i y question was uow sought. This, ho
i.ci'.k'd, was in accordance with the law of
progress. Numerous such understandings
had already iK-en arrived at for the ragula
tion of the common infrrf a nf
ized world in regard to telegraphs, railways,
weights and measures, and why should not
the same course be followed ia the case of
money? Itv.as fitting that the delibera
tions of the conference should take place on
the soil of a country belonging to the
Latin Union, but it was for the delegates
of the United States to put forward the
views of their government and explain how
It was proposed to carry these views into
France and America Pleased.
In conclusion M. Beernaert expressed
the hope that the delegates would reach an
understanding as to the best means for the
rehabilitation of silver and that to this end
they should make the Latin Union the foun
dation of a vast international agreement
as to the coinage of gold and silver. M.
Beernaert was warmly received by the
American and French delegates, but
evoked fewer signs ot approval from tha
delegates of Austria, Germany and Eng
land. At the close of his address Senator
Monti fiore Levi was elected chairman of
the conference and Edwin 1L Terrell,
United States Minister to Bolgium, was
elected vice chairman.
Not in Sympathy with "Gold Bags."
Senator Levi spoke at considerable length
upon taking the chai. He followed the
general lines of M. Beernaert's address and
made no pretense of sympathy with the
"gold bugs." After reviewing tho numer
ous efforts to regulate the relations of the
metals both thmimh mtl

with keen interest, as it was expected to
contain some hints as to the course to be
pursued by the American commission. It
was, however, a purely formal recognition
of welcome on behalf of the American dele
gates. Several delegates requested the
American representatives to give the details
of their plan, as the wording of the invita
tion to the conference had been too vanie
to convey any clear idea of its conereteoh-
ject. This tbe Americans declined to do
but thev promised to submit their

'it a Very Hopeful Outlook.
In both Austria aud Germany the allu
sions of the preys' to the conference are al
most without exception to the effect that
it represents the etiorts of the silver pro
ducing states in America to enhance their
product at the expense of the rest of the
world. Every observer of the Austrian
and German delegates in the conference
yesterday could remark their opposition;
in fact, they were the ones responsible for
the request that the American delegates
should show their hand at once. They,
together with the English delegates, will
be the leaders of every effort to render
futile any work attempted by the United
States or members of the Latin Union in
the way of bi-metalisin. '. '

MUCH ADO ABOUT SOME VAPOR.
A Comet Sensation That Is Worked for Its
l ull Value.
CmcAGO, Nov. L'3. On Nov. fl the as
tronomers discovered a comet approaching
the earth which is to say coming in on its
regular or irregular visit to the sun and
after a few observations said astronomers
concluded that it was Biela's comet,
which is or has been a very erratic body of
vapor, at one time splitting in two and
playing other fantastic tricks that could
only be seen by those with telescopes of
great power. The comet, so the astrono
mersor reporters said was going to be
very close to the earth a matten ofabott
a million miles or so and look as big as a

about 150,000,000 miles away, and still a-going.
Professor Young, of Princeton, N.
1; says it will be nearest the earth's orbit
if it traveLs via Biela's route probably
Saturday night, at any rate before next
Sunday. The comet has not been visible
to tbe naked eye, and will not be visible, as
its substance is very rare, not nearly so
dense as the earth's atmosphere. If it
should strike tho earth it would be like
throwing a feather bed on the ocean. There
may be a meteoric shower as the two bodies
attain their closest relations. It may be
noted that Dr. J. E. Sullivan, of St. Louis,
an amateur astronomer, predicts a meteoric
shower Saturday night.
