The "Royal" the Strongest and
Purest Baking Powder.
Whether any other baking po wder 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?

Chicago, Jan. IS. The leautiful home
f the Calumet club at Twentieth street
and Michigan avenue was totally destroyed
by Are last night 'about 4 o'clock, and it is
feared that one life was lost. Nothing

Jagged brick wails rising at some points as

Ice lilorkade in Baltimore.
BALTIMOBS, Jan. 18. Baltimore is under
a blockade by ice. Only the largest tug
boats work their way through and then
only under a full head of steam. Tugboat
men positively refuse to move steamers
from their i iers. Several steamers ready
for the elevators cannot be moved and
work in them is at a standstill. Oyster
commission merchants receive $1.80 a
bushel for oysters of the kind known as
"good straight nps." One dealer of twenty
years' experience said this was the highest
price he bad ever known 4a this market.

$20 as he was in a pinch,
was traced to Dempsey by the
messenger who delivered it. The bill for
services signed "O. K. Dempsey" was in

League Meets in National Conference
The McGarrahan Bill Beaten.
Washington, Jan. IS. Perhaps the
rsost important meeting of the finance
committee of the senate held during this
congress was that of yesterday, which re
sulted in a decision to favorably report
the Sherman bill to repeal the purchase of
silver. Subsequently Sherman reported
the bill and it was placed on the calendar.
The meeting was largely attended, every
member baing present but Senator Jones
and Senator Vance, who is ill. The com
mittee was in session for an hour and a .
half, and while the majority were in favor I
of the action taken a vigorous opposition
was manifested by Harris of Tennessee and
Voorhees of Indiana. Those who voted to
report the bill favorably were Morrill. :
Sherman, Allison, Aldrich, Hiscock, Me-1
Pherson and Carlisle. Senators Voorhees
and Harris entered their emphatic protest
against the p-'jposed action of the commit
tee and wo- Id have been joined by Sena
tors Jones and Vance had they been pre

The meeting is said to have been "inter
esting," this probably referring to the
speeches made by Harris and Voorhees.
both of whom have a fashion of speaking
their minds and using the very plainest
sort of English in so doing. They were
out voted, however, and the discussion
will now be transferred to the floor of the
senate. The bill reported is that intro
duced by Sherman during the last session,
and simply provides that on and after Jan.
1, 1S!U, so much of the act of Juy 14, lStfl,
as provides for the purchases of silver
bullion to the aggregate of 4,500,000 ounces
a month and the issuance of treasury notes
in payment therefor shall be repealed. A
section of the bill reported by Morrill
March 1, 12, providing that national
banks shall be entitled to receive circu
lating notes to the amount of the par value
of the United States bonds deposited by
them was added to the bill as reported.
Mcrhersou Thinks It Will Do,
McPherson said that the bill was satis
factory to him, although he would rather
have had his resolution reported. The one
fecture he did not approve was that which ,
postponed the time to the 1st of January, j
but still he thouvht it afforded relii f. j

would return to a currency and a money
that was not debased. The provision per
mitting the banks to issue notes up to the
par value of tha bonds he also thought to
be a good thing, which would of itseif add
seventeen millions to the currency of the
land. Business would iruprove.anunneraof
prosperity would prevail that would leave
its impress r.pon the entire cor.ntry the
moment the bili became a law. Teller ai.d
Voorhees do not believe the bill can pass,
and Voorhees is credited with saying that
not ten Democratic senators will vote for it.
Matters stagnant in the Honse.
The anti-silver men in the house have
made no active move toward getting the
Andrew-Cate bill up in the house, and it
may be that they will now decide to wait
on the senate. It is Andrew's intention,
however, to ask the committee on rules
for a day for the bill and free coinage men
expect they will get it. Bland, Pierce and
others have rt jetted all propositions look
ing to a Qom;.romise and profess to be able
to defeat any attempt to force a vote by
closure or otherwise on the repeal of the
Sherman act. Many anti-silver men, how
ever, believe that good will come of the
consideration of the repeal, even if it be
not passed, and that filibustering alone
prevented a repeal of the present law.

year 1500 demanding the full enjoyment of
his privileges and concessions.
