Senator Cullom ctrtain'y voices the
sentiments of every liberty- loving citizen

upon the Cuban question. The Spanish
papers of Havana are urging We) ler on

women, children and non-combctant,

fortute of war, call it a necessity, and

chery, and there is nothing which can
justify the outrages which have been
committed under the orders of We ler.
If there were no other reaon why the
United States ebould interfere, the
wholesale slaughter of the innocent and
helpless is enough. Should this gov
ernment stand by in a state of "inocuous
desuetude" and permit the ruthless
murderer of women and children almost

interest of - the United States does not
demand interference, humanity calls

over a few immaterial technicalities in

Alum baking powders are responsible
for the larger part of this unwbo'esome
food, for it ia a fact well recognized by
physicians that alum renders food indi
gestible and un wholepome.
The danger to health from this ciuse
is so imminent that it behooves, every
one to adopt precautionary measures to
keep alum baking powders, which sre
now so numerous, from the kitchen
stores. It will be found that, those
powders eold at a lower price than Royal
are almost invariably made from alum,
and therefore of inferior qnality and
dangerous to health.
The safer way is to look for the well
known red-and-yellew label of the
Royal Baking Powder. That is certain
to cover a powder free from alum. The
Royal is made of cream of tartar, a pure,
wholebame fruit aoid derived from
grapes. It is renowned for adding anti

as for making finer and better food.

There is no Question Bat What There
Waa a Conspiracy-
San Fbancisco, Deo. 11 The evi
deuce in the Fitzsimmons-Shnrkey casa
today was along tbe lines of the testi
mony previously given, and Fitzeim-
moos and Julian have certainly fulfilled
their promise to produce a story of cons
piracy that would etartle tbe sporting
world. George Allen, Snarkey'a eeconJ
and assistant trainer, was the principal
witness today. His evidence corroborat
ed in tbe main tbe testimony given by
Australian Billy Smith. On cross ex
amination Allen admitted that while
Sharkey after the fight gaveco external
evidence of injury in the groin, be asked
for water when taking to his dressing
room, and when water was brought
directed Allen to bathe hia groin. Allen
considered that Sharkey had been fairly
knockouted by FitZ6immoos,and declares
that no foul blow had been struck by
tbe latter. He was so impressed by tbe
fact tbat Sharkey was knocked out that
after the sailor had been down 6ix sec
onds he started to throw up his towel
to indicate Sharkey's surrender. Allen
said he helped to carry Sharkey into
the dressing room, from which alt but
Sharkey, Lynch and the trainers were
excluded. In ths dressing room Shark
ey was carefully examined and the wit
ness wis positive he was at tbat time
uninjured in tbe groin. After Sharkey
was taken to his hotel end the trainers
excluded from Sharkey's room, Lynob,
Danny Need hem and Dr. Lee were
alone with Sharkey. Shortly, from his
position outside tbe room, the witness
said he heard Sharkey cry out, aa if in
pain. When be next saw Sharkey, on
the following day, hia groin was ban
daged and there were stains of biood on
the groin. He applied fomentations to
the groin, which was then swollen and
discolored. No doctor was permitted to
examine Sharkey in the dressing room
immediately after tbe fight, although
several, including a physician of the
Rational Athletic club, applied for ad
mittance and tendered tbeir services.
According to tbe witness Lynch eaid:
"We want no doctor here.' William
Abbot, who eat close to the ring, corro
borated Allen's testimony.

ImportantlSaitlAdjndicated by Judge
Baker this Morning.
Judge Baker made a ruling of impor
tance to miners this morning, in the
case of L. P. Nash et al, against L. J.
Horton et aL. The action was one to re
cover the possession of the ground alleg
ed to have been covered by the notice of
location of tbe Overlook mine.
In August, 1894, tbe plaintiff put up
one monument and placed his notice iu
it, and, without doing any more, left
the premises. In October of the same
year he returned to the place in order
to erect other monuments, but was
there met with arm by the defendants,
who were upon the claim, and they or
dered him not to enter.
Judge Baker held that the plaintiff
was guilty of unreasonable delay in not
completing bis location; tbat the law
required an immediate completion of tbe
location, or, at least, its completion
within a reasonable length of time, and
tbat plaintiff, without excuse, had de
layed too long; that the defendants hav
ing lawfully and peaceably entered upon
tbe premises during the interval and
being actuary in possession thereof
when the plaintiff returned in October,
plaintiff could not recover.
A verdiot was therefore direoted for
the defendants.
The decision clearly and suocintly
covered the general principles govern
ing mining locations and was pronounced
by the parties to be a very forcible ex
position of the law. Herald.

News reached here Thursday that
the Queen mine at Hedges, Cal one of
a group owned by the Gold Cross Mill

had caved in at the 100 foot level and
buried four men. The miners were
shortly afterward rescued with slight in
juries and it is said all will be well

again. To add to the excitement two

Tbe Ponce de Leon Mining Syndicate

nel. The outlook for Picacho and ita mines
never was better than at the present
time. Eastern men and money are ready
to push the work on the promising min
ing claims which they have already se
cured. The same is true of London.
There i an abundance . of money for
development and macninery, but not a
dollar with which to buy mines out and
out. When such mining experts as Wm
A. Fariab, C. J. Bell and Emerson Gee,
after having spent days and weeks in a
most careful and thorough test of the
ores and their veins in that mineral belt,
pronounce in their favor, and confirm
the good things which have been said of
them, the time is not far distant when
the Picacho mines will come to the front
and occupy the place which they so
richly deserve. Yuma Sentinel.
An excellent hint to that unscrupu
lous class, the "salters" of mines, whose
field is happily becoming more limited
in the light of better and more intelli
gent investigation of mining properties,
came to light in sn exhibition recently,
before the Imperial Institute of Edin
burgh, Scotland. The exhibit arose
over the much discussed questions as to
how gold was originally deposited ia
quartz, and Mr. J. C. F.Johnson of
Port Adelaide, Australia, who has given
much attention to the subject, showed
some specimens of non-auriferous rook
into which he had introduced gold arti
ficially and in suoh a manner that the
experts present were unable to detect
tbe handiwork. Mr. Johnson has for
years been experimenting with the
various salts of gold, and the result hi
some remarkable specimens of manufac
tured auriferous quartz which when
broken, show the gold through every
lamination of tbe rock. Tbis discovery
of how gold was deposited msy prove of
value in suggesting an economical
method for its extraction, but the agents
of the investors should be guarded that
tbe work of nature is not copied by those
who have gold mines to sell snd are not
above "salting" them. Inter-Mountain
