Practical fusion between the Democratic and Populist parties on the presidential ticket has been decided upon by the Populist na tional committee. Unless present plans are changed, however, the Democratic vice presidential candidate will not be endorsed whether or not Charles A. Towne decides to withdraw his name as the candidate of the Populist party, as this, it is feared, would result in a large deflection to the middle of the road Populists. Charles A. Towne will leave for home late this afternoon and will stop over at Lincoln at the invita tion of W. J. Bryan. The whole situa tion will be thoroughly discussed and upon Mr. Bryan's views on the matter will depend in a large measure Mr. Towne's decision in regard to the vice presidency. He will not announce his decision until he has also had confer ences' with other leaders in both the Democratic and Populist parties and until he does communicate with the Populist national committee, which will not be for several days at least, that body will take no further action. In case Mr. Towne decides to withdraw his name as the vice presidential candidate of the People's party the national com mittee will select another candidate. The sentiment apparently is against the endorsement of Mr. Stevenson, on ac count of the peculiar conditions existing in several of the western states, notably Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota, where the Populist vote is larger tha the Democratic and where the Populist leaders fear the straight endorsement of the Democratic ticket would Jeopardize the success of the ticket. But the parties will work together in this way: In the states where the Pop ulist strength is the greater, the under standing will be that the electors or both tickets will favor Bryan and Towne. This will apply especially to the western states. In the eastern states and in other sections where the Populists themselves admit their party is distasteful to the Democrats, the elec toral tickets will be fof Bryan and Stevenson. In the electoral college, according to the general plan as outlined it is the intention to unite the vote probably on Mr. Stevenson. This general plan was outlined at the meeting of the Populist national committee, which was held last night at the close of the meeting be tween the conference committees of the Democratic, Populist and Silver Repub lican parties, and which adjourned early today after a protracted debate. "The whole Idea is to concentrate our forces and work for the success of W. J. Bryan," said former Congressman Ridgley of Kansas, today. "The Dem ocratic platform and ticket is satisfac tory to us, but peculiar conditions ex ist in many of the states where our strength Is the greatest, and we con sider it advisable to have a complete Populist ticket in the field, as in this way we can hold out" forces." HELPS THE MARKET. Free Silver Plank Regarded as Assur ing SffcKinley's Election, by Wall Street New York, July 7. Bradstreet's fin ancial review says: Although activity has been of the re stricted kind, suitable to the summer season, and though speculation still has almost entirely a professional origin the past week has witnessed both a strong and an interesting market. In fact, its strength in the face of dullness and of adverse political developments at home and abroad has been somewhat remark able. The Chinese situation involving danger to the Kuropean markets, with the possibility of future international complications, brought free selling of stocks here for account of Berlin, and to some extent for London. These offer ings, were however, readily absorbed, and Wall street was apparently indis posed to borrow trouble by looking too far ahead in connection with China. The adoption by the Kansas City con vention of a free silver plank without modification of the 16 to 1 principle, was also apparently disregarded or it might be said that the market was inclined to a belief that this action renders the out look in the national campaign that is now beginning more certain than if the Chicago platform of four years ago had been modified in its financial sec tions. Conservative people, of course give due weight to the uncertainties that are liable to develop in connection with domestic politics and there is in such quarters, recognition of the dan gers that are involved in China. This seems to have brought back many large financial interests but on the other hand, money is easy and the enormous disbursements on income on July 1 have brought a large supply of funds into the stock for reinvestment. Although scattered, the buying of divi dend paying stocks has been large and persistent, and commission houses re port a considerable demand of that kind, which of course, reduces the float ing supply. The fact that rains have improved the wheat situation in the northwest and have caused expectations of half a crop to replace the estimate of a total fail ure of the spring wheat yield in three important states also helped the mar ket, and caused covering of shorts throughout the list. The belief that a change for the better is at hand in the iron trade, also had a good effect on the industrials. In the railroads the an thracite group was the active feature of the week, with sharp advances in several of its members, giving rise to the idea that some important deal, in volving trunk line interests, is in pros pect. Call on the Banks. Washington, July 7. Mr. Dawes, the comptroller of the currency, has issued a call for reports of the condition of na tional banks at the close of business Friday, June 29. 1900. ew Life Strength begins at the stomach.

EitterS HOW IT HAPPENED. J. G. Johnson Explains Stevenson's N omination to Populist. Kansas City, Ma, July 7. A pro tracted meeting of the conference com mittees of the Democratic, Populist and Silver Republican parties was held at Lyceum hall last night, at which the vice presidential situation was dis cussed, with a view to bringing about, if possible, an agreement between the three parties. The members of the Democratic committee urged the Pop ulist and Silver Republican representa tives to use their influence in uniting their parties in support of Bryan and Stevenson. "The Democrats all over the country," said Committeeman Johnson, turning to the Populists, "know that Mr. Bryan Is your kind of a man. If the two parties were to unite, and factions arose, every Democrat knows that Mr. Bryan would be found with your party. Democrats felt that the nomination of Mr. Bryan was in deference to the more radical reform element of the party, and that a selection should be made for vice president to hold the conservatives. This brought about Mr. Stevenson's nomination. There never was a time that Mr. Towne had a show of success." It was finally decided to hold a con ference later between the Democratic committee and sub-committees from the Populist and Silver Republicans, the result to be reported to the full committees of the two latter parties for their approval. STEPHENS WAS TIRED Says He Gave TJp Because Work Was Not Appreciated. Edward Stephens denies that he was requested to hand in his resignation as the superintendent of the Colored In dustrial school. In speaking to a reporter In regard to the matter, Mr. Stephens said: "Sev eral months ago my wife and I con sulted Mr. J. B, Larimer, who is vice president of the institute board of trus tees, and told him and other members of the board of our determination to abandon the work which we founded and established, because of the unap preciative feeling of the people for whom the work was begun. The re linquishment of the institute was en tirely voluntary on my part. I was not voted in by a board, and in consequence could not have been voted out by a board. The fact is, I appointed the board myself. Two others and myself are the owners of the Institute." Continuing, he said: "I gave up the work because of my disgust at the lack of interest shown. I will continue to live in the building used by the insti tute until the house I am building on my farm south of town is completed." News From Whalers Belayed. San Francisco, July 7. News of the whaling fleet which spent the winter in the ice is being anxiously awaited in this city. Heretofore the result of the winter's work, the condition of the men and vessels have always been known here during the month of June. For many seasons the mail was brought by Captain Hoffman,, who now commands the schooner Penelope, and it may be that whoever undertook to succeed him Las a mail carrier has succumbed to the hardships in crossing the ice. The rev enue cutter Bear is now on its way to the cruising grounds of the whalers. . A Hop Trust. Santa Rosa, Cal., July 7.

Greater in leavening strength, a spoonful raises more dough, or goes further.

Finer food; saving of money; saving of the health of the family; the last is the greatest economy of all. 1 Some baking powder makers claim their powders are cheaper. They can be cheaper only if made from cheaper materials. ' Cheaper" means inferior materials always. To cheapen the cost of an article of food at the expense of its healthfulness, as is done in alum baking powders, is a crime. ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO., JONES RE-ELECTED. Arkansas Senator Made Chairman of National Committee. Kansas City, Mo., July 7. The na tional committee of the Democratic party met at the Kansas City club after the adjournment of the convention and immediately organized. Senator Jones, who was not a member of the commit tee, remained Outside until the prelim inaries were over. Thomas Taggart of Indiana, who has been mentioned as a possible chairman, nominated Senator Jones for chairman and he received the unanimous vote. The senator was sent for, and in ac cepting the chairmanship, said that the committee .entered the campaign in much better shape than our years ago. Then the members were all new and un tried in party affairs, which had been in the hands of men who were over thrown in the great issues dominating the 1S96 convention. Now they had a complete organization and were ready to go ahead and make the best fight possible. He complimented the action of the convention both as to platform and the candidates. The matter of selecting the executive committee was left to Chairman Jones, who will make the appointments after he has had time for consideration. It is understood that many of the members of the last committee will be chosen. A committee consisting of Tillman of South Carolina, Johnson of Indiana. Williams of Massachusetts, Osborne of Wyoming and Wilson of Idaho, was appointed to confer with representatives of the Populist and Silver Republican parties as to the best plan of campaign. A delegation from Columbus present ed the claims of that city as headquar ters for the campaign. The matter was referred to the executive committee, but Senator Jones told the delegation that the city which presented the best facil ities for carrying on the campaign would be selected, whether the commit tee liked the city or not.
