If some grocers urge another baking
powder upon you in place of the " Royal,"
it is because of the greater profit upon it
This of itself is evidenoe of the supe
riority of the "Royal." To give greater
profit the other must be a lower cost
powder, and to cost less it must be made
with cheaper and inferior materials, and
thus, though selling for the same, give
less value to the consumer.
To insure the "finest cake, the most
wholesome food, be sure that no substi

Nothing can be substituted for
the Royal Baking Powder

A Very "Sliek" Young Woman.
There is one youn? woman here very
youiiK as she is br.t 14 who seeais to be
a '"slick citoyenrie," aboundently able to
"t,'et there" no matter who is in the way.
She is named Nora Wiley. As coon as
the reistery broths were opened she
atiirte.l her little scheme. At that time
there were from to 1.HM men and
women in lin- before each booth, some of
whom had tx-en in their places for forty
etoht hours. ilis Nora secured a tray and
two cups of coffee and started for the
Ami They Cheer at Her Trlrk.
The men in line, supposing her a wait
ress with coffee for the men in the booth,
made wav f r lier ritrht at the head of the
line. When she finally readied the regis
tration Isxith she placed the tray on the
desk and said:
"Mr. Clerk. I am an orphan and, there
fore, the h"ad of my family, and I wact to
register for a town lot." The men dis
placed at lirst looked blankly at her and
then net up ;. cheer. The clerk fcave her
the coveted certilicate whi :h she triumph
antly waved as she parsed through the
living walls of men. Uisitlu are put up
at a number of points anil wherever there
is a booth there is a crowd of thousands,
all wanting to be registered for the race
to the "promised land."
Mile of People Waiting Turn.
Iiooth No. ! for instance is composed of
three tents with two clerks in each.
Around cad: tent is a small fence contain
in; five gates for entrance and each gate
is supplied with a guard to keep order.
To each tent there is a line of people from
one to two miles in length, nnd since
morning it, has grown longer instead of
shorter. The line commenced forming
Sunday evening and John U. Cameron, of
Kansas City, was the first to register.
The booths opened at fifteen minutes of
7 o'clock and the registration started
emoothly. Later it commenced to get
tedious and a man was registered in from
one to three minutes. This in alow work
and half of the settlers here cannot get
registered at this rate. Colonel Gallagher,
who has charge of the booths, promises

Miss Kate Durand, of this city, was the

CLAUS SPRECKLES AT CHICAGO.

ClUCA(;o, Sept. 12. Clam Spreckles, of
San Frausisco, with his sou and confiden
tial manager. Adolph Spree kles, are at the
Richelieu. The latter in -peaking of the
situation in Honolulu said that there was
as yet uu movement on the part of the
provisional government to varda a perma
nent character, nor was ' here any well
defined movement towards restoring the
deposed monarchy. He fcaid that tiie op
position to annexation was not an opposi
tion to the United States, but the issue at
stake was of vital importance to the
planters and sugar raisers.
"We cannot raise sugar anywhere in
the world without the cheapest kind of la
bor, and there is but one pi ce where any
thing like wages is paid ind that is in
Louisiana, where the planters receive a
bounty which reimburses them for their
large labor expenditure. In the Sandwich
islands we must rely on th s Coolie labor.
The laws of the United St ites forbid the
importation of contract labor and annexa
tion simply means the ruination of the
sugar interests of the Sant wich islands."

Would Raise the Tax on Smoke3
EEPLT TO A QUESTION BY CARLISLE
rtoaaestlc Spirits Taxed High Enough, bat
the Same Sort of Beer and Tobacco
Should Bear m Heavier Burden, While
That oa the Foreign Troduct Should Be
Reduced Iron Men Talk to the Vji
and Meaoa Committee.
Washington, Sept. 12. Hon. David A.
Wells, the veteran tariff reformer, has
submitted a lengthy report to Secretary
Carlisle in answer to his request for an
"opinion as to the expediency, from a
strictly revenue point of view, of main
taining or changing the present internal
revenue taxes on distilled spirits, malt
liquors and tobacco."
Wells' conclusions are as follows: "The
wisest fiscal police of the federal govern
ment certainly for the immediate future
would seem to be to impose the maxi
mum of taxation on distilled spirits, fer
mented liquors and tobacco that will not
create in face of efficient administration
and severe penalties undue temptations
f jr revenue evasions.
"In the case of distilled spirits, on which
the existing rate under the most favora
ble conditions of production is always in
excess of 3 ) per cent, of their first cost
or taxable unit, this seems to have been
absolutely ignored; but as the experience
of recent years shows that the revenue
from this source is increasing in a ratio
equal to or in excess of the increase of
population and the amount of illicit pro
duct comparative. y small any change in
the present tax would seem clearly inexpe
dient. Oa the other hand, in the case of
fermented malt liquors and tobacco the
existing taxes are far below the safe line
of expediency, and might be advanced
i. e., to the extent of tl per thirty-one gal
lons, or one-fifth of a cei-t on the half pint
in respect to the former, and the latter
at least to the rate imposed in 1SS2.
"The existing customs duties on the
imports of spirits, fermented liquors and
tobacco are exceedingly high and ab
surdly disproportionate to the corre
sponding internal revenue taxes on the
same aud can undoubtedly lie modified to
some extent to the advantage of the reve
nue. One effect of the maintenance of our
excessively high duties on imported spirits
is that a greater opportunity is offered to
combinations (trusts) of domestic pro
ducers to advance the price to domestic
consumers, and another is that they en
courage the domestic manufacture from
cheaper materials of imitations of foreign
Wells' estimates that by the changes he
proposes the internal revenue from fer
mented liquors would le increased from
J-S.o.'iO.mni to i'4.f'''.iXi0 and from tobacco
32,.n.i0,(a'0 to $.lii.UiO. Also that the
customs revenue from imported spirits,
wines and beer would lie increased from
tV,iiiio.( to $10,tiKi,t if) nnd from tobacco
from 13,'JJ.'ki to tlii.iO i,(KXi. The aggreg
ate receipts from internal revenue taxes
and customs duties on these three com
modities he thus estimates, would be in
creased from iiJ.ntjO, to 243.000,0110.
"It is therefore obvious." he says, "that
from taxes ;:idfr:ious!y imposed on three
commoditie-rrir branches of industry, the
federal government can at the present
time certainly, economically, and with
less burden and disturbance to its people
than by any other form of levy, collect an
annual reventro suflicient to defray all cf
its ordinary expenditures, including infer
ess on all its debts and have in addition
an annual surplus of near $.V ,i.Kh,ii."
OTHER VIEWS OF THE TARIFF.
Grosvenor Offers an Anti-Kefuriu Keaoln.
tion Committee Hearings.
Washington. Sept. 12 As one measure
of relief from the ""present deplorable con
dition of the business of the country"
Grosvenor of Ohio has iutraduced a joint
resolution reciting thut "it is not the in
tention of the Fifty-third congress to make
radical or important changes in the prin
ciples of tariff taxation, nnd it is hereby
Bolemly declared that congress will not
undertake a sweeping revision of the tariff
laws, nor will it remove from American
products either of the farm, the mine, or
the shop that protection which now stands
between the American producer and the
foreign producer: and especially is it here
by declared that congress will not remove
from products of agricultural industries
the full measure of protection now af
forded by law."
Iron had a hearing liefore the house
ways nnd means committee and the plea
was, almost exactly in tiie li8eof the above
resolution. Among those who addressed
the committee was W. It. Sterling, vice
president of the Illinois Steel company.
He said that the depression was largely
due to the uncertainty of action on the
tariff; that for a year his company had
been curtailing business on that account,
and now instead of 9.3'n) employes it only
had l.liXJ. George H. Ely, president of the
Western Iron Ore association, talked the
same way. Ely was questioned, but when
promised cheaper ore by reduction of
tariff, said that would result in less wapes
for producers of native ore. The same sort
of pleas were put in by I'resident Sedden,
of the Schloth Iron company, of Birming
ham, Ala,: A. M. Shook, of Nashvil.e,
Tenn.. and many others from different
American iron centres.
