Fire In the New York Clothing Store.
On Sunday morning about fifteen minutes
to cue o’clock an alarm of Are was given,
caused by the discovery of smoke issuing
from the New York Clothing House, on Con
gress s reet. The policemen on du'y in that
ward endeavored to sound an alarm from two
boxes, but failed, which no doubt somewhat
delayed the firemen In reaching the scene.
As soon as possible, however, the engines
were put to work, and the flames were got
under control, and, with the exception of
the interior, the building was not seriously
damaged The Are originated on the flrut
floor, and must have been burning for some
time, as nearly the entire stock on that
floor Is burned. The flames swept the
apartment, and did the work of destruc
tion pretty thoroughly. The place was
closed at the usual hour on Saturday night,
we understand, when everything was ap
parently right.
Tne Duiiuing belongs to Mrs. M. A. Bar
stow and was Insured. There was a very
large sUck of clothing and furnishing
goods in the house, every floor being occu
pied. The contents of the upper stories
were damaged hy water and smoke, but es
caped the flames.
We are informed that the stock was
valued at between i‘25,C00 and $30,000, on
which there Wj. Insurance ae follows: Wil
liamsburgb City $2 500; Watertown $2,500,
represented by Captain John F. Wheaton;
London Assurance $5,000, represented by
Mr. C. G Falligant; Liverpool, London and
Glebe $5,000; Commercial Union $5,000,
represented by Mr. W. H. Daniels; Guar
dian Insurance $2,500, represented by Mr.
H. T. Botta. There was insurance in the
London Assurance Company, represented
by Mr. C. G. Failigant, on the building for
SB,OOO.
Death of a Venerable Lady.
Mrs. Ann M. Davies, an estimable lady,
well koown in Savannah, died after a brief
iilcces ou Saturday evening about 6 o’clock,
at her residence on South Broad street, near
Whitaker, at the advanced age of 77 years.
Mrs. Davies was a native of Savannah, had
been twice married and was & widow at the
time of her death. She was a zealous and
consistent Christian woman and a devoted
member of the Methodist Church for many
years, in the affairs of which she took the
liveliest interest. Bbe was Preei
dent of the Parsonage Aid Bociety,
a Directress in the Widows’ Society
for many years, and President of the
Orphans’ Society auxiliary to the Confer
ence Orphans’ Society of the M. E. Cbureh
South. Mrs. Davies was a remarkable
woman, and notwithstanding her venera
ble age was active in the discharge of the
important duties in these various church
societies. Her death will be mourned by
the many who knew find appreciated her
sterling worth. Her funeral took place Sun
day afternoon at three o’clock from Trinity
Methodist Episcopal Church.
A Harvest for tbe Plumbers.
The cold snap of the past week has been
a perfect harvest for the plumbers, and they
have been taxed to their utmost, many of
them having orders that they cannot pos
sibly attend to for a week or more. We
learn that several establishments bad men
at work throughout yesterday, in
ease3 of great emergency. There
was a general bursting of water pipes
throughout the city on Saturday, and in
some houses serious damage was done, and
the plasterers will also come in for some
good job3. It is another verification of the
old ausge “ ’TU an ill wind that blows no
body good.”

A VISIT FROM THE FROST KING.
Tho Foliage of the Forest City
Draped with lee—The Beauty of
the Park Marred Considerable
Damage.
The last week of 1880 will be remembered
by Bavannahians as the coldest on record
within the recollection of the “oldest in
habitant," and the weather generally as ex
traordinary. After three days of clear, bit
ter cold weather, there was a change in the
temperature, with indications of snow, sleet
or rain. Friday opened threatening, with
the thermometer at 7 o’clock marking 35,
but subsequently falling 2 degrees. During
the day, however, there was a very percep
tible moderation, and by 3 o’clock, it had
reached 42,and a slight drizzle set in. It took
another tumble towards dark, and at ten
o’clock bad droppsd below 35. The sleet,
which ln the meanwhile bad formed, was
falling fast, and the trees begau to glisten
ln their Icy covering under the feeble glare
of the street lamps. The sidewalks were
covered, and the pedestrian had to exercise
unusual care to avoid too sudden and for
cible contact with the bricks. Throughout
the night the sleet continued to form, and
proved too much for our semi-tropical trees
and shrubbery, which yielded to the un
usual weight of frozen water, and were bent
and broken. ' q
Never before ln the remembrance of any
one now living has such a sight been seen as
our streets and parks presented Saturday
morning. The foliage which a few days
since was a beautiful green was glistening
with ice, and Icicles several inches long were
had presented a transformation scene which
the most skilled artist could not reproduce,
and which defied description.’ It was a rare
spectacle, exciting admiration and surprise.
It is unfortuuate that the background
of this crystallized picture should be ruin
and disfigurement, but such is the case.
Forsyth Park, the pride of our com
munity, has been greatly damaged, and Mr.
Meves’, the keeper, states it wili be a long
time before It can be restored to the attrac
tive appearance It presented a few days
since. Large limbs were broken from the
tall pines,and stately oaks were snapped by
the ley hand of the Frost King, and marred
of their beautiful proportions. The cracking
of the limbs was heard for several blocks
off, and the graveled walks are strewn with
the ruln6. Policemen were stationed at the
Park gates to warn persons passing through
the Park of the danger from the fall of
limbs. The hedges of evergreens are pro
bably killed at the roots, and the wire rail
ings around tho flower beds have
beeu broken down by the fallen branches.
In Johnson square the palmettoes which
graced the corners of the Iron railing around
the monument are ruined, one having been
snapped in twain. It is thought if these
trees had not been so closely trimmed up,
they would have been able to resist the
storm.
Throughout the city on nearly every street
were seen huge branches covered with ici
cles lying on the sidewalks and ln the
gutters, and many small shade trees were
completely prostrated beneath their icy
burthen.
The telephone aud telegraph wires pre
sented the novel eight of myriad strings of
icy beads.
Thirty years ago Savannah witnessed a
similar sight, though not on as great a
scale. Ou the 17th December. 1851, a cold
wave struck this section, and there were
two days of intense cold. On the 19:h
there was a heavy fall Of sleet and snow,
aud on the 20. h the trees were laden with
Ice, and the streets covered with snow,
which remained for several days. Consid
erable damage was then done to the shrub
beiv.
■ Throughout the forenoon, and, Indeed,
the greater portion of the day, rain fell,
and the inevitable result followed. The
trees and shrubbery, the railings and fenc
ing were soon shorn of their crystallized
covering. The sidewalks were rendered in
a horrible condition, the rain having reduced
the sleet and Ice, and the result was abomi
nable slush. After dark there was a change
and the night was exceedingly unpleasant,
and was followed yesterday by another
freeze, though not as severe as that of Sat
urday. There were indications of rain, bu
none fell, and last night was damp and
cloudy, though the temperature was con
siderably milder. The signal report for to
day Indicates cloudiness, warmer weather,
with slight rise ln barometer.
The truck farmers ln the vicinity of the
the city have suffered heavily from this un
exampled weather, aud the Market Satur
day afternoon was almost bare of vegeta
bles. Indeed we have never seen a scantier
supply ln the Market, and many of the
stalls were not occupied at all. in
formed that all the peas which have been
planted early, and nad attained a good
growth, are killed. Cabbages and pota
toes are frost-bitten, and all vegetation has
been injured to some extent.
We also bear that cattle have suf
fered considerably from the intense cold,
though so far as we have learned there hat
been no fatality. For the first time in
many years there has been anxiety on the
part of owners to secure shelter for their
live 6toek, which heretofore have thriven
in the open fields. The 6heep particularly
are said to have suffered from the pitiless
weather, aud it has been found necessary to
house them.
magisterial Flection.
Tbe election for Magistrates and Consta
bles in four of the Militia districts ot the
city took place Saturday, and passed off
very quietly, although in each of the dis
tricts, considering the inclemency of the
weather, a very full vote was polled. In
the Second and Third districts there was
no opposition, and the present incumbents
were re-elected. Xq the First and Fourth
districts there was very lively competition
for the honors, and the respective candi
dates worked like beavers, and brought
out every available friend. The result was
as follows:
In the First district / L. Strickland
was elected Magistrate, T. A. Foltiard,
Frank McDermott as Constables.
Ia the Second district, Isaac Russell as

A Pine Pointer Capture* a New mas
ter.
Mr. Frank Bergman, the well known ste
vedore, informs us that Saturday morning
he had occasion to carry a sea Captain in his
buggy to the Central Railroad wharf on
business. While temporarily absent from his
buggy a fine yonng pointer dog took posses
sion of the vehicle and proceeded to make
himself comfortable, On his return he was
surprised to find the strange occupant of his
buggy aud invited him to leave, but the
animal, evidently satisfied with his quarters,
refused to vacate. After repeated efforts to
oust him without success, MP. Bergman
concluded to drive off with the dog, which
evinced his satisfaction in capturing anew
master by licking bis band. The pointer is
of good breed and a fine specimen. Tbe
owner can obtain him on application to Mr.
Bergman. _
A Drunken man Nearly Frozen to
Death.
Saturday night Policeman Maher found a
white man lying lu the street in an uncon
scious condltiou, exposed to the pitiless
peltlags of the cold rsin. The unfortunate
creature, when aroused, was found to be
so thoroughly drunk as utterly unable to
-give bis namt and was in an imbecile state
from drink and cold. He was carried to
the barracks, when it became apparent that
be was In a dangerous condition from tbe
cold. Lieutenant Sheftall, who was on
duty, summoned Dr. Bulloch to see him.
The proper attention was given him, and
about half-past tea o’clock last night he
was reported out of danger.

Alum Bakins Ponders la Court-
Intcresiling Testimony of Scientific
Mem
Within the past two years a bitter contro
versy ha* been waged between manufactur
ers, on account of the use of alum as a cheap
substitute for Cream of Tartar, by many
manufacturers of baking powde.i. The
handsome profits yielded by using the sub
stitute have induced dealers as well as manu
facturers to push them into the hands of
consumers, sometimes under definite brands,
frequently by weighing out in bulk without
any-distinguishing name.
Are such powders wholesome? The Royal
Baking Powder Cos., who make a Creim of
Tartar baking powder, declared that they
are Injurious to the public health, while
others who make alum powders claim that
they are not. The whole matter as to the
effects of these alum powders, has finally
been brought Into the courts, and the case
was tried i j the Superior Court of New
York city before Chief Justice Sedgwick,
reported substantially as follows lathe New
York Sun:
CONCLUSION or A LITTLE TBOtTBLE BE
TWEEN A CHBMrST AND AN EDITOR,
The sutt of Dr. Henry A. Mott against
Jabez Burns has brought to light the fact
that this country produces at least forty
two different kinds of baking powders.
Neither Bums nor Mott has been found
gull tv of making the baking powders, but
Burns, who is the editor of a periodical
called the Spice Mill, has been severely
mulcted for libel In his efforts to, make his
paper spicy. Dr. Mott, it appears, is a
chemlct, and at one time was employed by
the United States Government to analyze
different specimens of baking powder which
had been recommended for adoption to the
Indian Bureau. Dr. Mott reporteu in favor
of the cream tartar baking powders for the
Indians, and against the alum baking pow
ders. Tne chemist analyzed forty-tvs©
kinds of baking powders.
The jury were out about half an hour.
Then they came In with a verdict awarding
Dr. Mott #B,OOO, to which the Court made
an additional allowance of $150.”
As the public have a large interest in the
wholesomeness of whatever it is called upon
to use as food, the following extracts are
introduced from the testimony of some of
the prominent men as to the injurious ef
fects of alum powders.
Dr. Mott:
Q. Were you employed by the U. 8. Gov
ernment ?
A. I was, sir; was employed as chemist,
to analyze all the articles of food; to express
an opinion as to the analysis of their health
fulness and purity.
Q. Please tell the juty the Baking Pow
ders that you examiued while in the em
ploy of the Government ?
A. It would be difficult to remember
them all: 1 could refer to my books; I ex
amined twenty eight powders; was given
sixteen at first.
By the Court :
Give yoar best recollection.
Q. And one of the powders included was
“Dooley’s Baking Powder ?”
A. Yes, sir.
Q. Aud the “Cbarm ?”
A. Yes, sir; the “Charm” and “Pa
tapsco.”
Q. The Baking Powder made by C. E.
Andrews, of Milwaukee—did you analj ze
that ?
A. I did.
Q. Please state in which powders you
found alum?
A. I found aium in Dooley’s, “Patapsco,”
“Charm,” “Vienna,” “Orient,”‘‘Amazon,”
“Lake Side,” “Twin Sisters,” Superlative,”
“Kiug,” “White Lily,” Monarch,” “Ooe
Spoon,” “Regal,” “Imperial,” “Honest,”
“Econofiical.” “Excelsior,” “Chartres,”
“Grant’s,” “Giant,” and the “Queen.”
Q. Now, these powders mentioned in
your communication in the Scientific Ameri
can—“ Dooley’s,” “Standard,” “Patapsco,”
“Charm” —Baking Powder manufactured
by C. E Andrews, of Milwaukee, you stated
you found burnt alum; if you will please
name the respective powder that you have
examined —was it potash or ammonia alum,
you found?
A. In the “Patapsco,” “Charm,” and
in the Andrews, it was ammonia alum.
Q. What is the gas usually furnished by
Baking Powders ?
A. The object of Baking Powders is to
furnish carbonic acid gas.
Q. Will you state to me again what other
gas beside carbonic acid gas is proper to
be evolved from a baking powder?
A. A limited amount of ammonia gas.
Q I notice in your article that you say
starch is a proper iugredient to put in a
baking powder?
A. Starch is a proper ingredient to pre
vent the decomposition of baking powders.
Q. Recurring to the question that has
been asked you upon this suit—the result
of these examinations which you have
made—is it your opinion that alum In theee
various compounds, in Baking Powders,
such as you have examined, is injurious?
A. It is my opinion, based upon actual
experiments on living animals.
Charles F. Chandler, called on behalf of
the plantiff, being duly sworn, testified as
follows:
Q. Dr. Chandler, you reside In the city of
New York ?
A. I do.
Q. Your business Is that of a chemist ?
A. It is.
Q. You are and have been Professor of
Chemistry In several colleges ?
A. I have.
Q. Please state how loDg that employ
ment of yourself has been, and with what
colleges you are now connected ?
A. I am at present Psofe*6or of Chemistry
in the Academic Department of Columbia
College; the Bchool ef Mines, Columbia
College; the New York College of Phy
sicians and Surgeons, and the New York
College of Pharmacy.
Q. You are President also, of the Board
of Health, are you not ?
A. lam.
Q. In your various employments, have
you had frequent occasion to examine the
question of the wbolesomeness of food, and
the beneficial or injurious effects of Its in
gredients *
A. I have.
Q. I will ask you in regard to the use of
alum with soda, In a baking powder,
whether or not it Is neutralized —Is there any
injurious constituent of alum left?
A. There is an Injurious constituent left
after the mixture of alum and bi-carbonate
of soda.
Q. Without using any nicety of chemical
terms, v.-hat is your opinion about the use of
ammonia alum in a baking powder, in com
bination with bi-carbonate soda and other in
gredients, for raising bread—whether inju
rious or not?
A. I think it 1s dangerous to the digestive
organs, and liable to produce serious dis
turbance of the liver of the Individual mak
ing use of such powders.
Hbnkt Morton, President of “Stevens In
stitute,” called in behalf of the plaintiff,
being duly sworn, testified as follows:
Q. You are President of the Stevens In
stitute?
A. I am.
Q. And Lave for many years been a chem
ist?
A. I have.
Q. Have you had occasion to examine the
substances which are used in the composi
tion of Baking Powders?
A. I have.
Q. Did you, some time ago, examine a
sample of Dooley’s Baking Powder?
A. 1 did.
! LQ- Is that it, sir? [handing canl.!
A. Yes, sir; that is it.
Q. Well, what kind of alum did It con
tain?
A. It contained potash alum.
Q Did you make any extract of that
alum, to show the kind?
A. I did; I extracted a large quantity of
it as potash alum, and it Is in that bottle
which I have now here (showing bottle);
that is potash alum which came out of the
alum Baking Powder that was in that can.
Plaintiff’s Counsel offers said can of Doo
ley’s Baking Powder in evidence.
Q. Now, sir, have you made any experi
ment in the bread made from Baking Pow
der to see whether there was any solubis
alumina in the bread itself ?
A. I have; I took a portion of this pow
der &Gd mixed it with flour in the directed
proportions, and baked a small loaf with it;
then I soaked this loar—the interior part of
it—in cold water, and made an extract, in
which 1 readily detected, by the usual tests,
is, alumina in a soluble condi
tion.
q. Does any Baking Powder in which any
alumina salts enter contain alnmins, in
your opinion, which can be absorbed in the
process of digestion—are not such objec
tionable ?
A. Very decidedly objectionable, in my
opinion.
Q. Why do you say—from what system of
reasoning do you make it out—that because
alnm is injurious, alumina is injurious ?
A. Because the injurious effects of alu
mina, when it gets into the stomach and re
acts on the organs, a;e the same; this hy
drate of aluming meets in the stomach the
gastric juices, and reacts with them the
same as alum would; it forms, in fact, a
kind of alum in the stomach with those
whatever alum would do, it woul<J
do.
Dr. Samuel W. Johnson, Professor of Chem
istry, In the Scientific School, Yale Col
lege, being duly sworn, testified as fol
lows;
Q. You have had much to do in the ex
amtnation of substances that enter into
food; and the adulteration of food ?
A. More or less; yes, sir.
q. After the use of alum vyith soda, in a
baking powder. !.p your dpiulou, is there any
Injurious substance left ?
4- In my opinion, therq js w injurious
substance left,
Q. What, sir, tw o years ago, was the pre
vailing opinion among scientific men as to
the effect of the use of alum In Baking
Powders ?
A. As far as my acquaintance with scien
tific men is concerned, my personal opinion
is derived from my investigation and from
reading; I should think the opinion was
q. Do I understand you to eay that any
baking powder in which there are aluminous
salts, or any resultant from aium which
could be absorbed In digestion, is objec
tionable and injurious?
A. Extremity *O,
Prof. Joseph H. Raymond called, sworn
and testified as follows:
q. Would you be good enough to 6tate
your profession?
A. I am a physician, sir, and a Professor
of Physiology.
Q. You also were, and have been for some
time, Sanitary Superintendent in Brooklyn—
is not that so?
A. I have, sir,
q. Now, sir, I will ask you your opinion,
from this experience, whether the use of
alum with soda, in a baking powder, is
injurious or not, In !*s physiological ef
fects?
A. I consider it to be dangerous.
Q. You examined this question tor the
Board of Health in Brooklyn, some years
ago, did you not?
A. Two years ago, sir, in December.
By! he Court ;
q. What was the result of your investiga
tion as to the use of aium lu Biking Pow
der ?
A. The result of my investigation at that
time, was this: that the changes which took
place betweeu the time that aium baking
powder was put in the bread, and the time
the bread was eaten, the chenlica! changes
were so little understood by chemists, that
as a physician and physiologist, I considered
it a dangerous experiment.
Dr. Mott, the Government chemist, in h*s
review of the subject in the Scientific Ameri
can, makes special mention of having an
alyzed the Royal Baking Powder, and found
it composed of pure and wholesome materi
als. lie also advises the public to avoid
purchasing baking powders as sold loose or
in bulk, as he found by analysis of many
samples that the worst adulterations are
practiced in this form. The label and trade
mark of a well known and responsible man
ufacturer, he adds, is the best protection
the public can have. jan3-lt
