Pay the Price of the
Royal for Royal only
Royal Baking Powder is shown by actual
chemical tests absolutely pure and 27 per cent r '
greater in strength than any other brand. v.7 .
Many second-class brands of baking powder
are urged upon consumers iX the price of the
high-cost, first-class Royal.
These powders, because of the inferior quality
of their ingredients, cost much less than the
Royal, besides being of 27 per cent, less strength.
If they are forced upon you, see that you are
charged a correspondingly lower price for them.

ROTHSCHILD'S PLAN IS "LAID OUT."
The Latin Union Iid It With Its Little
Objection Another Proposal That Dc
Telops Much IHsaRrremeut That of
Merits Jjt-rj to Be Given a Turning Over
Kext Report of the Committee to the
Conference Interrogatories Propounded
ad Answered Nothing Yet Ierided.
Brussels, Dec. 3. In their report to
tlie international monetary conference
yerterday the special committee ap
pointed to consider the various plans de
clared that the proposal of Alfred de Koths
thild was extremely interesting, and wor
thy at some time of serious attention. The
committee had decided, however, to espec
ially recommend to the conference the Mo
tits I.vy plan for the withdrawal from cir
culation of all bank notes and gold coin
of the nominal value of 20 francs and the
Issue of a paper and silver currency having
the same purchasing power as gold coin
below 20 franrs. It is understood that the
flelepites from France, Italy, Belgium,
Sweden, Norway and Russia were opposed
to the Rothschild plan.
Objected To by the Ijttin Union,
The delegates of the Latin union disap
proved of the plan on account of the pro.
position to make 49d the maximum pur
chasing price of sifver and refused to he
conciliated even when this figure was raised
to a higher one. ihe American delegate
are determined to persist in advocating
their plans of oimetallism and believe that
the conference will remain in session until
there has been an opportunity for thorough
discussion. Bertram Currie, an Knglish
delegate, is using all his influence to bring
the conference to an early conclusion, ap
parently in the interest of monometallism.
The Special Committee's Report.
The report of the special committee said
that liefore considering theplans of Roths
child, Moritz Levy and Adolph Soetbeer
they had t-r.tsl to clear their way by getting
an-wers from dcl gut:- to four vital ques
tion. The first quesUi'U hiul leeii:
"What measures will the silvt r producii.g
e uiitrics tn. e to restrict t r regulate pro
duction?'' Henry W. Cannon hud ;:iiswerel
that no artificial means of regulutiuit the
production ol f-ilvcr misted in the United
Su.tes and legislation to that end was ex
ceedingly improiianlif. l)r,.uty Do;i Jaquiu
('asAsus Li-i n:-ic a similar r.'ply iuv
As to Prxu et of Production.
The second qui stiou had been: "What
are the prospects reardin the future pro
duction of Mi.vei'' Deputy Casasus h.;J
answered Uiat in ?i!u.ico the produc
tion had reached its maximum, the
tux having been reduced I ruin 30
P(r cent. Cannon had au
werwl that thu silver production in the
United Statu was confined to six states
and three territories. Tho extension of
Rocky mountain railways bad opened a
large Dumber of mines whose total pro
duction, although unknown, had reached
r exceeded tne nignest previous average.
Poller of the United States.
The third question had been,-, "What la
the policy of the United States ooncerning
silver purchases!" Cannou had answered
hat the Democratic and Republican par
ties and the ban tor of New York had de
clared in favor of s repeal of the silver pur
chase act of ltftW, and this aot in all proba
bility would tie repealed if no international
agreement were made at the present con
ference. India's Policy Mot at All Certala.
The fourth question had been: "What is
the policy of India in the matter of silver
coinage?" Sir Guilford Molesworth had
answered that as long as hope of an inter
aatioual agreement existed India would be
reluctant to alter her present money sys
tem, but if the donfereuce collapsed and
consequently the last chance of united
action were lost India would feel obliged to
act for herself. The adoption of the single
gold standard bristles with difficulties
which excited the apprehension of India's
sncrcantile world, yet aha felt assured that
her adoption of gold monometallism would
be still more disastrous to the countries
already having the single gold stondard.
DISCUSSED DE ROTHSCHILD'S PLAN.
A Wide Divergence of Oplnloa Develops
Atlault u Unole Sam.
Xfter disposing of the four questions and
answers the committee had proceeded to
the discussion of the Rothschild plan for
obligatory international purchases of sil
ver. The opponeuts of the plan had soo
tended that natural economic laws would
Bsrotrnlize the effects of such an artificial
anode of trying to appreciate silver. . The
act necessitating government purchases of
silver in the United States had failed
signally not only to raise the price but also
to ,:- re- r ' n--. hi lT?i "1
worth of silvw far cr.maire w. ;nout nav
ing had any effect in preventing tne nepre
ciation of silver. ; ; ;
Conld Not Decide the Qacttiou. C
Senor Osma, Spanish delegate offered a
scheme providing that Kurope s lould buy
SO.OOO.tiOO ounces of silver annually, the
United States continue the pn sent pur
chases and ludia and Mexico maintain un
limited coinage, each nation's quota of pur
chase to be determined later. At this a
widedivergenceof opinion became apparent
in the committee on the question whether
a central international organizati in should
Ik-created to purchase the silver in lump
for all contracting powers and then aliot
to each country its share, or each country
should purchase its own share indepen
dently of all others. Xo decision was
reached on this matter
Knplanri Adhere to Rothschild.
The committee decided not to ei ter deep
ly into the complications of Adolph Soet
l.eer's plan, but to confine themselves to
Moritz Ievy's proposals. A mot ion to re
commend the Rothschild plan was defeat ed
by a vote of 7 to 6. As regards levy's
plan, the committee took the action al
ready indicated with the apprc val of a
large majority. Nevertheless Sir C. Fre
mantle, delegate for Great Britain, de
clared that he was unable to pie lge Eng
land to withdraw her smaller gold coins
unless in connection with some such plan
as that propped by Kothschihl.
"Will Iicnss L.evy" Plan Next.
After discussing the report and ;.he gen
eral qr.estior of the principle .iuM'lved in
t h- li.it i If f the standards the elegates
l ided against reverting at onct to the
iiix-iission of the original American pro
posals, lest such a discussion should lend
totae pretuaiure dissolution of th' confer
ence. The conference adjourned after
passing a resolution to nie-t. again on next
Tuesday to d scuss Moritz Levy's j 'an.
Currier Creates Sensutinn,
Bf.-tram Currier, delegate fo- Great
Hi itain, crcat vl the first sensation of the
conference by making a rather fiery attack
on the I'nitfd States for their attitude to
ward the silver question. He denounced
the selfish policy of t tie American govern
ment and v.:r:il the other delegates
against puliii'g the chestnuts out of the fire
for the United States. America w shed aj
make a scapegoat of Europe, he saic, in the
present conference. He derided the i ttempt
to raise the price of silver in defi ince of
natural bi'.vs and by trivial artificial meas
ures. Protest Against a Failure.
The delegates from the United States,
England, India and Mexico have made
statements to the committee to the effect
that they solemnly desired to call attention
to the universal danger that would be in
curred should the conference prove . com
plete failure. The statements submitted to
the conference, along with the report of the
committee indicate concerted ucliol in the

Session Prospect for Two legislatures

Chkyknnk, Wyo., Dec. 3. Yesterday
Governor-Ilect Osborn went to the staie
house and on being refused admission to
the executive rooms broke in through a
window and is holding the fort. The siaie
vote is not yet canvassed, and Actinir Gov
ernor Barlier told Osliorn that he would
not surrender the office until the official
canvass was made. Governor Warren has
been elected senator, and that is why Bar
ber is ncting governor, according to law,
but there was a doubt a.s to when and how
the governor-elect should take his o!V;ce.
Governor-elect Osliorn charges that the
Republicans are holding back the official
count to rob him of his office and has taken
this way of a-verting his rights.
Hearty to Resort to Arms.
Republicans on the other hand assert that
Osliorn is party to a scheme to seat enouuh
Pcniocrnrs in the legislature to make sure
the election of a Democratic Unite;l States
senator. Excitement is running high and
trouble may ensue. A great many people
are disposed to make light of the affair, but
there are thousands in the state who r.re
willing to resort to arms to circumvent the
Republicans. With the latter Warren's
place is not the only thing at stake. The
cattlemen who raided into Johnson county
and killed a couple of alleged thieves last
April are to lie tried the first Week in Jan
uary. It is charged that Acting Governor
Bar Iter was to 1- kept in place to pardon
them if they were convicrerl.
Osborn Isur a Pracluntatinn.
Osborn has issued the following procla
mation: ''in obedience to the constitution
nnd laws of t he state of Wyoming. 1. John
E. Osborn, do hereby make proclamation,
that having been duly elected by i ic quali
fied voters of the state of Wyoming to I he
office of governor of the state t till the
vacancy in the office occasioned by the re
signation of Francis E. Warren, heretofore
elected and qualiiied as governor, and there
being no board of state eanva'sers
authorized to canvass the returns and de
clare the result of said -election for govcr
Dor.aiid the returns from the sever:.! Ikium'.s
of county canvassers now on file in t' e
office of the f -cretary of state showing thnt
I have been unquestionably elected to tho
office of governor, I have duly and legally
qualified as governor of the state, and am
now said governor, and I do call tip"ti all
true and loyal citizens of the state to re
spect my an; bority in such ftice end aid
me in enforcing the laws and seei;; that
justice in all tilings is done."
Pretty Prospect for Bloodshed.
In an interview Osborn says thnt he ex
plains himself fully in his proclamation
lie rests his case on the fact that there is
no law for the canvassing of the vote for
governor aud that there was clearly a dis
position on the part of Republicans to keep
him out of office. Barber says that be will
continue to act as governor, and in due
time the vote will be canvassed. What
will be done today or when the excitement
cools down is a mutter of speculation. The
Democrats will fight to the lat ditch for
their alleged rights, and the Republicans
will desperately oppose them. The Repub
licans have all the judiciary and will likely
appeal to the courts.
