foyal gaking: Powder
Is Chemically Pure.
The only Baking Powder yet found by chemical analysis to
be entirely free from both lime and alum, and absolutely pure,
is the " ROYAL." This perfect purity result from the exclusive
use of cream of tartar specially refined and prepared by patent
processes which totally remove the tartrate of lime and other
impurities. The cost of this chemically pure cream of tartar is
much greater than any other, and it is used i l no baking powder
except the "Royal."
University of Illinois,
Champaign, Aug. 5, 1891.
I have recently analyzed samples of the Royal Bak
ing Powder purchased by myself in open market,
and I find it invariably to be composed of wholesome
ingredients and entirely free from adulteration or im
purities of any kind.

Chicago, Jan. 14. The Crete accommo
dation on the Chicago and Eastern. Illinois
road, leaving Dearborn station at 7;20
o'clock last evening, was telescoped at
Fifty-fifth street by a Chicago and Erie
through train to New York. The accom
modation train consisted of three ccachcs
filled with suburban residents on their
Tvay to their homes. Nineteen people were
severely injured in the wreck and scarcely
any one of the 150 or more passengers
escaped some bruises or minor injury. To
add to the horror of the scene, the centt-r
coach of the accommodation train caught
fire from the over-turned stove, while
three passengers two women and one
man were eruight in the wreckage close
to the flumes, and were cut away from
their perilous position by the heroic ellurts
of their fellow passengers.
A List of the Wonmled.
The list of injured is as follows: D. 15.

liow the Disaster Occurred.
The accomiiKvl.ition train, which had
been delayed, was standing on the main
track at Fifty-fifth street when the express
crashed into the rear car at full speed.
Three cars of the accommodation train
were telescoped, and the destruction was
so complete that it seemed little less than a
miracle that scores of people were not
killed outright. Scarcely had the maimed
and bleeding passengers began to emerge
from the wrecked cars when the debris,
took fire from an overturned stove. Fortu
nately a supply of water was near at hand,
and those less seriously hurt succeeded in
extinguishing the flames, but not until a
number of the imprisoued passengers had
been badly scorched.
Some of the Victims Frost-ICitten.
Every one of the passengers not totally
disabU-d joined in tha rescue of
their liss fortunate fellow passengers and
the work was pushed with energy until nil
had been removed. The weather was ex
temely cold and some of the helpless
victims suffered frost-bites in addition to
their other injuries. The victims were
carried to the Fifty-fifth Street station and
a corps of physicians was soon on the spot
rendering till possible aid.

Washington, Jan. 14. The callers at
the Blaine residence last evening were few,
and those who were seen ufter their visits
informed representatives of the press that
they were told that Mr. Blaine was "about
the same." Drs. Johnston and Hyatt called
about 0 o'clock, and after remaining with
their patient ubout a quarter of an hour

said that Mr. Blaine had been languid and
weak during tl.e day, but otherwise there
was no change in his condition.

Washington, Jan. 14. The national
deep waterway convention began its sessions
here Thursday and spent the first day or
ganizing and listening to speeches. Yester
day a plan of permanent organization was
adopted. The object of the convention is
the construction of a deep waterway be
tween the great lakes and the Atlantic
Ocean to be controlled by the United States.
The working power of the orgari.ation is
to ba located in an executive committee of
five, of which the president of the organiza
tion shall be ex-officio chairman, and a
board of control composed ex-officio of the
presidents of the organization'in states and
territories. Individuals may become mem
bers on payment of an annual due of i'3.
and commercial bodies on payment of
Wate. Transportation the Cheapest.
Mr. Irwin, chairman of the committee
on resolutions, reported the following as
the expression of the views of the conven
tion, w hich were adopted:
"Whereas, Kcouomy of transportation ia
the chief cornerstone of national prosper
ity, and all toe experience of the past has
shown that deep water-ways not only fur
nish the cheapest form of transportation
in and of themselves, but constitute the
most potent possible regulator of railway
rates; and work now in progress and Hear
ing completion will open through Canadian
territory a channel connecting the sreut
lakes with the Atlantic ocean, which chan
nel will be nowhere less than fourteen feet
ia dej.lh, and will lie available for all pur
poses of peace or war; and
A Tweak ofthe Lion's Tail.
"Whereas, It is intolerable that the com
merce of the United States in its course
toward the ocean should be dependent
upon a oependeticy of a power of which
our fore-fathers achieved political indepen
dence more than a century ago; therefore
"Resolved, Uy the National Ship Canal
convention that every consideration of na
tional security, national prosperity and
natioual honor demand the construction of
a water-way n- t less than twenty feet in
depth cornice ting Cue great lakes with the
sea through American territory, a continu

out the great lakes, which hasalivady bei n

"Resolved, That this cm vim ion respect

congress to pr unptly pass Louse bid ;.
which has already been favorably reported
by the committer on i.iilroads and canals,
and which nuthori.es the secretary of war
to have made surveys, examinations, and
estimates of cos of tl.e various pract ;r:th o
routes for such wati.rway wish a view o
determining the one which is most advantageous."

Finally, on motion of Colonel G rover,
the following was adopted in the nature of

convention, while conliuing its action to
the one pnrpose for which it was called,
cordially approves improvements of the
water-ways and canal connections from
the Mississippi ami Ohio rivers to the great
lakes whose importance will be greatly' in
creased when they shall be connected by a
deep water channel to the Atlantic ocein."
The convention then took a recess dur

to the White House and were? received bv

WAR ON THE WHISKY TRUST.
Harrows Wants a Special Committee to
Washington, Jan. 14. Representative
Burrows, of Michigan, has begun an active
onslaught on the whisky trust. Yesterday
he introduced in the house a long preamble
and resolution reciting the newspaper
charge that the trust is making spirits,
highwines and alcohol for use as beverages
by the use of adulterants; that the trust
is in a conspiracy with the rectifiers to that
end; that the adulteration is effected by
the use of the poisonous drugs of which
fact the retailers and consumers are in
ignorance; that the spirit of the rectifier's
law is thus violated.
l'elramls the I. S. Revenue.
It is further alleged that the United
States revenues are thus defrauded by the
dimiuutiou of importations; that the recti
fiers are obliged to consume only the pro
duct of the trust, under heavy penalties;
that the contracts are iu restraiutof com
merce between the states; wherefore it is
resolved that a special committee of five
members ol the house be appointed to fully
investigate and report upon the subject,
and especially what persons are connected
with the trust.
