was blowing a galu from the southwest, ana a
heavy sea was running, but the foolhardy pair
Icept on, and the sea began to break over tho
boat, and aoou half tilled Iter with
water. They tried to put her
about, but they could not do so, and the boat
drifted out a mile and u half from shore, at the
•mercy of the wind and waves. The two men
endeavored to ball her out with their hats, but
they made no progress. They hod been watched
•by the lookout man at the Life-Saving Station,
■and, when a signal of distress came from them,
Copt. St. Peter manned the sailboat which hu
had bandv and put out after them. He soon
overhauled them, unil took them on board of
his boot. They wero well-nigh exhausted, and,
notwithstanding the quantity of stimulant they
bad aboard, pretty thoroughly scared.

A fractional quarter-section, of tho National-

noon at No. 103 Clark street. Mr. James
Ullmoro called the meeting to order, Mr. Will
iam Halley was solemnly elected Chairman, and
Dr. Daft took voluminous nates of tho pro
ceedings, which will bo stowed away with other
curiosities. In accordance with Immemorial
usage, each of the fifteen persons present was
allowed unlimited opportunity for propounding
Ids views. Messrs. Harr, Wilson, Page, and
Gilmore specially distinguished themselves In
the oratorical line.
The alleged object of tho meeting was to de
vise means for the purification and rehabilitation
of the party. As a means to this end It was re
solved that ail clubs be instructed to elect new
delegates to the Central Committee* The lie
form element claim to have become disgusted
with the political hacks ami bummers who have
run things heretofore, and In this list they In
clude all or nearly all of tho deceased parly who
wore not ac thu meeting. The regenerated, and
those who have keot their garments uosollcil.
claim that they can form a nucleus around
which all stripes, divisions, septs, clans, tribes,
and denominations of political heretics can rallv,
and there was some talk of a mass-meeting, to
bo held at an Indefinite date in the future, at
which an opportunitv will be afforded to the
lost lambs to return Into tbu fold.
CRIMINAL,
Julia Green and Sarah McNulty, arrested for
dlsordely conduct, Quarreled last night In a cell
at the Armory, and tho former proposed to end
tho difficulty by cutting out her opponents
hosrt* Sarah defended herself with her shoe,

Inkstand at Justice Surotncrllcld'a head because
be fiued her for vagrancy.
At 12:30 yesterday morning James D. Dixon,
pilot of (he Goodrich steamer Alpena, got Into
a quarrel with some men who were drinking

23 West Madison street. The fight was trans
ferred to tho slduwalk, where four men
pitched upon Dixon and badly wounded him
about the head and cheat with slung-shots and
bricks. Some passcugcra In a street-ear rescued

In this city yesterday on bis way borne from
Minnesota, where he has been engaged In fer
reting out evidence against a Mrs. Francisco

Jail at Cleveland, for obtaining money by
false pretenses. She obtained In oil some
$22,000 Irotn farmers about that section of coun

There were no new developments yesterday re

by the police, was arrested mid
locked up in the West Twelfth Street
Station, .Too is notorious enough from his fre
quent arrests for robberies of all sorts, but
some way or other hn has always managed to

leave It, mid the proof at best can bo only cir
cumstantial.

WILLUM 11. SHOCK, TUB BNOINKBU-IM-OUIVV OF
TUB UNITED STATBS MATT,
arrived In this city Saturday and la now located
at the Fulmer Home. He la en route to the
Pacific coast on so Inspection tour of the navy
yards. Heretofore thu systematic Inspection of
THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE; MONDAY. MAY 12, 1879.
the navy-yards has boon confined to tho Atlan
tic coast, while the yards on the Pacific have
been to n great decree neglected, being honored
with a regular Inspection only onto or twice
during nnv Administration. It has now boon de
cided to Imvo the Inspection uniform with the
other places. The principal motive for Mr.
Shock's visit to San FrnncUco, however, Is to
superintend the fitting out of the Jeannette,
the steamship destined for the Arctic regions as
a part of the ilennett expedition. Hie
time now fixed tor Its depurture Is
from the Ist to the IBth of June,
under the command of Lieut. De Long,
U. S. N. Ills orders are to reach the North
Polo, and ho Is an officer who heretofore has
alwavs ohoved Instructions. The Jeannette will
carrv out a party of about thirty savnns, who
exnccl to make a detailed scientific Journal of
the trip. All necessary Instruments for scien
tific observations have neon provided, os well ns
the more practical appliance# which the experi
ence of former explorers In this field have shown
to bo useful and necessary. Every precaution
has been taken to avoid accidents, and It Is be
lieved that a more thoroughly prepared expedi
tion has never before been sent out from our
country, The Jeannette Is a stanch steamship,
which has been remodeled with especial refer
ence to this Arctic cruise. She will bo
provisioned for eighteen mouths, and a special
supply-boat will be dispatched at the expiration
of fifteen months with provisions for the rest of
the voyage, which is expected to last about
three years. Thu hlstorv of previous Arctic
voyages, those of Hayes, Kane, nod Ihe recent
Swedish and Russian expeditions especially,
have been carefully studied, and efforts made
to anticipate every danger that can possibly bo
Imagined.
Mr.'Sbock also bos la view (he furtherance of
thu scheme of the Secretary of the Navy for
training-ships on Inland waters. It has liccn
found that the United Slates navy m great
part Is filled up with foreign sailors, and such
was thu case during the late War to a large ex
tent. It' has been thought advisable,
In order to cultivate a becoming patri
otic. spirit among tho seamen, that os
far as possible they should bo natives of thu
country. With this object in view, the Secreta
ry proposes to send a man-of-war, fitted up as a
training-ship, up tho Mississippi os far as pos
sible, that the rising generation, even In placet
remote from the sen, may bo Imbued with a de
sire to go to sea, and receive the training neces
sary to admission. This Idea will probably bo
put Into operation this summer, so that thu
small boy who has never seen a wave may run
awav to sea as eHectuallv as tho more fortunate
youngsters who have be'eo dipped in the brlnv
from their earliest infancy. Mr, Shock leaves
for San Francisco to-day.
MARK GRAY.
BENT TO ELGIN.
In tire Criminal Court Saturday, Mark Gray,
the would-be assassin of Edwin Booth, was
brought ud for trial. It was understood before
hand that all there was to the case rested on
the mental condition of the prisoner, and all the
evidence introduced was on this point. Mr.
Booth and another witness briefly described the
shooting, and Drs. Lyman, Brower, and Daa
forth, who had made an extended examination
of Gray, unanimously pronounced him Insane.
Gray’s mother, an old lady residing at Keokuk,
la., testified as to many strange actions of her
son. He tried to shoot himself on one oc
casion, and the wound bo then received proba
bly still further affected a brain never strong.
Gray himself took the stand. Ho sold bis
name was Mark Gray; that he was born in St.
Louis, and was about 25 years of age. Ho last
saw his mother in Keokuk In September last.
He had been engaged in the dry-goods business
for ten years, and for five years prior to that
wasit newsboy on the streets of St. Louis. Ho
started drinking when lie was about 10, and quit
entirely somcwnerc In the neighborhood of ids
21st year. Ho believed drink had an effect upon
him. He had a wound uoon Ids head (hero he
put back his tangled black locks to snow the
Jury the scar). This was caused bv a bullet from
the cylinder of a revolver which he dropped
upoa a hob stove. He attempted suicide be
cause he could not stop drinking, and he
thought there was no other way out of it but to
take his own life. He believed that the wound
had’ affected his head. Ha didn’t know any
thing about Mr. Booth except os nu actor, and
considered the slur as vastly Inferior to Law
rence Barrett. Said he: ‘’when you see Air.
Booth vou sec an actor, but when you see Bar
rett yon sea the character ho is playing.”
Gray said that ho shot Booth because the lat
ter mocked him. He declined to say who Booth
was mimicking, but It was one of his own family.
A person with whom Gray talked while in the
jail said that the lunatic bor told him that
Blanche Do Bar, while acting in Keokuk five
years ago, revealed herself to Gray as his
cousin, ami informed him that he was fho son of
Edwin Booth. The prosecution announced their
readiness to accept a verdict of insanity, and the
jurv, without leaving their scats, found the fel
low insane, and ordered that he bo scut to the
Elgin Asylum.
MU. TYNER.
OIIJBCT OF Ills TKtP.
Assistant Poalroastcr-Qcneral Tyner Is at the
Grand Pacific, bavin}; reached this cltyyosterdoy
morning on his way West, lie left Washington
Tuesday, and stopped over ono day at Clncln
nati, and another at Indianapolis. A TmmiNß
reporter saw him for a few moments, and asked
the object of his trip.
“To look into tne ma'J service on tho Pacific
Coast, 1 ' was tho reply.
“ Will you examine tho Pnst-Olllcoa?"
“Thu leading ones, and also look Into tho
stage routes.' 1
“Are you to Investigate complaints? ll
“Not at all."
“Only the workings of tho system? ll
“To ascertain whore expenses can he cut
down, and whore they should bo increased to
make a mure ctllclcnt service. l '
“How long will you be gone?"
“About two months and a half."
“ Will you coniine yourself to California?
“No; the trip embraces portions of Utah and
Colorado aha."
“Do you Intend extending tho carrier sys
tem?"
“ Wc will look Into tho matter in twoor three
of the larger cities, especially Sacramento, and
Portland, Ore,"
POLITICAL.
“Tell me something about national politics."
“Well, the sentiment in Washington concern
ing the ITcsldental race next year is somewhat
divided."
“Between whom?"
“It predominates largely In favor of Gen.
Grant, but there h a strong feeling (or Mr.
Sherman, and a prettv strong feeling also for
Mr. Blaine."
“Is there any disposition on the part of tho
friends of* Mr. Sherman and Mr. Blaine to fluid
to Guo. Grant?"
“I have heard no discussion about that. Of
course they would yield if they couldn’t avoid
It. But I have no authority from either to say
that ho wants to hu a candidate."
“Is there unity among the Republicans lu
Washington?"
“All thu thoughtful ones there are especially
In favor of the nominee of the Republican Con
vention next year."
“'Hie act ion ut Congress has cemented them?"
“ Yos, there Js no division now. Thu Presi
dent is thu leader of thu party. Tho effect of
his policy has united thu Republicans. That
portion of them In the North who were alarmed
because thur supposed tint Administration were
establishing u Military Government in the
ftouthern fttotes or« n*>ru stalwart than any
body else. There is more unanimity In thu
puny to-day than there has been since 1608."
CUSTOM-IIOUSK CASKS,
SATUHUAY’S PIIOCBKWIBOB.
The trial of the Custom-House cases was re
sumed Saturday morning before Judge Dyer In
the United States District Court, and the day
was devoted to an •examination of Mueller’s
vouchers for stone-cutting, material, hauling,
and sawing, and to the l eading of a batch of
letters ou the subject of Mueller’s claim for
extra hauling, all of which gave the Jury an In
sight—conlnsed though It must have been—
Into Hie hffltory of the cose, and particularly
.Mueller’s wordy war with I’utter ou Hie subject
of hauling, although to suv Hint the correspond
ence was particularly interesting would be to
misstate facts most egcrcuiously.
There were one or two Incidents during HlO
day that tended to relievo the general dreari
ness of the session. Mr. dwell thought ho had
succeeded in druwing out of Auditor Harris the
fad that Hie Collector of Customs was responsi
ble fur the payment uf vouchers; and, the
prosecution declining to subpoma Collector
Hmlth, Mr. Swell got out u summons ou Ida
own hook, mid had it promptly served. Mr.

WHEAT.
£l«CiaJ CerrttitninUnce of Tht Tribune.
Mii.waurbk, May 10. —The leading topics of
conversation among our citizens this week have
been but two In number, viz.: Wheal and force*
rlua. Concerning wheal, all Is conjectural. The
"Syndicate," as it Is called, hold nearly
every basbet now stored In the elevators here
and at Chicago. * What is more, they have held
It during the entire winter, or rather
they have controlled the market, their movement
compelllhg them to liny every bushel as fast os It
reached Its destination. Now the market Is cn*
tlrcly under their control. They must either
make or break. Tlio conception of this great
speculation In No. 2 wheat, it mult bo admitted,
was good. The crop had turned out mcas*
nrnblv a failure. The proportionate yield
of the better grades of the staple proved
to be small; yet the ruling figures wore
temptingly low. Keene ond bis crowd caught a
faint glimpse of millions In It, and In they went,
neck deep. Their arrangements for carrying the
Immense load could nut have been hotter. Hut
unfortunately for them the foreign demand that
was to put prices up failed to come, nor bus It yet
arrived. The "gang"flnd themselves loaded dawn
"wall strokes to,'as the sailors term It; they
had, and have had. In one sense, absolute control
of the market; in another sense the market had,
and has had. absolute control of them. They
could handle all the wheat tbntmlght bo forwarded
at their own price, but they have not been able to
cut rid of It on the same terms. The parties who
sold to them did not want and have not wonted
tonarebase, and the foreign markets have uolre-
3 ulred a suificlenl quuutll yto create the extraor*
Inary demand that had been anticipated,
and which, hud it come, would have sent prices up
sufficiently to enable them to feather their nests.
Thns, up to the present time, the entire movement
has proved a "sinnd*ofC" fur those interested.
The "bonanza "they have had in view from the
ontset Is Just as fur off as over, and yet they may
grasp It. Everything seems now to depend upon
the next four weeks. Should the syndi
cate find themselves compelled to hold
the grain now nndcr their control, and the crop
lirospcct prove to be what they hope it will not,
lutwliat disinterested expect it will, good, they
cannot got out of their deal whole. This Is the
situation at present, put In a nutshell. One gen
tleman who Is generally pretty well posted on
wheat, said to Tub Tuhiunk correspondent one
day this week that the syndicate proper own
a (ride over onc*hulf of the No. 2 wheat
stored hero. The remainder belongs to par
ties outside of the rlug who propose to damp what
they have Into the laps of the ringsters whenever
the price reaches a polntibat will make It profita
ble tor them to do so. Vcstutday a member of a
prominent commission house said to the carrot
spondent, In reply to a request for Information ns
to tbustatns of the market: "It would puzzle a
Philadelphia lawyer to afford you the Information
sought. An the matter now stands, speculation
concerning a possible rise or fall Is out of the
question. Keene and Ids crowd hold absolute con
trol of the mantel, simply because they own all
of the higher grades of wheat in store. They can
pat prices up or down, as they choose. They said
heavily In Chicago yesterday, for Instance, while
to-day they are buying hero on a rising mar*
ket. I mention this fact merely as a
proof of the truth of my statement,
that a Fniladolpnla lawyer would bo
puzzled to furnish correct Information regarding
the probabilities, and while things are In this
shape any attempt at foreshadowing must ho con
sidered the bight of folly. To state the situation
briefly, and concisely os well, no man knoweth
what a day may bring forth. The gentleman who
made the remark is level-headed, and, better still,
truthful. Therefore his opinion Is entitled to con
siderable weight.
FORGERS AND FORGERIES.
Somewhat closely allied to this speculation In
wheat la the arrest of Mrs. A. G. Underwood upon
a charge of forgery, aild the mention of one Is sure
to bring the other to mjhd. The lady In question
is possessed or nn Inclination ordinarily peculiar to
the male sex only, that' 1 of engaging In business.
She has had a close evo on the wheat
market far years, and has doubled In
the product. Her ventures proved successful
at the outset. This lad her to venture
more deeply, with fair success, until finally a lucky
Investment added from $25,000 to $30,000 to her
money possession. Then she became Impressed
with the Idea that her star >vas aluckvonc. that
she bad been born to become rich through her own
shrewdness, and such a thing as failure became on
absurd notion in her mind. She bod made money
on an advancing market, and invested heavier
than ever in the" same direction. The
market readied the turning point about this time.
The decline that followed equaled the advance In
rapidity. If not in extent, and Mrs. Underwood
found all of her previous gains wiped out In a very
short time. Not only this, but even worse. Hho
found herself liulcUlo the extent of fully SII,OOO.
Tnen It was that sho bethoueht herself of the rich
father-in-law In . Massachusetts. whose
accumulations might assist her out of
the dilemma, and. sue prevailed upon
her husband to prepare the notes with which she
deceived tier creditors. Thus It was, because of
nn inordinate desire to speculate in an article
which Is manipulated nowadays os gamblers at the
faro-board manipulate thuir “chips," that a
woman who had hitherto maintained a character
above even the slightest suspicion fell and allowed
her name to be recorded tn the annals of remark
ble criminal prosecutions hereaway. There are niauv
similar cases to ho found recorded against the
sterner sex, hut the Instances where females figure
In such transactions are few in number.
Next In the order of Importance is the capture of
Alexander Cohn, the forger. Ttio crime with which
this man stand# charged has been ao thoroughly
ventilated through the column* of the newspaper#
a# to require no especial mention hero.
It may be stated u# an Interesting fact, however,
that since hln capture the relatives ami friends of
Cohen, who Imd nopod. and mayhap even praved,
that ho might succeed In ullectlug Ids escape from
the country, have dropped him as they would a
live coal. They llml (hat it will not do any longer
to make a show of sympathy, and therefore In con
versation openly express (he wish that he may re
ceive the punishment that hi# crookedness deserves.
Then* arc those among as who have found fault
iHicause of what they claimed to be undue haste to
notify the authorities when it was round that Cohen
luid disappeared, leaving behind him letters calcu
lated to create the Impression that lie suicided In
consequence of remorse at his misdeeds. When
i|iH*stluneil as to their reason fur Undine fault with
this notification, they unhesitatingly averred
that the man ought to have been given a
fair opportunity to escape. Thu warning of
(he police they thought mlgnt prevent this. These
people, who happened to bo so correct m their
conclusions as to the result, will nut be heard from
aguhi, now thui Cohen is captured. They happen
to bo tmsinees-men, ami as such they will not auto
to moke n further allowing of sympathy for the
forger. Cohen will probably arrive iiuru on Tues
day, perhaps nut until Wednesday of next
week, under the surveillance of Chief of
Police Kennedy. Thereafter until bis trial is end
ed. and he receives the punishment his crime do*
serves, bo will be the cynosure of all eyes.
AN ALDRRMANIO CONTEST.
At tlio last mooting of the Common Council EH
Vary. Uio only Democratic representative of tbo
Seventh Want In that body, handed In bis reslgim*
tion, which was promptly accepted. The
election of a successor devolves upon thu
Itapuhllcans, who have now a decided
majority In Uio ward,and,us (hero are no Isas than
three candidates fur thu empty honor, thu caucus
to*nlght will prove unusually Interesting. The
gentlemen whore naini-s have been roost promt*
nently mentioned for (bo. position arofieorgoM,
Tibolts, Dr. C. C. and Henry Hogers.
Mr. Tibblts was tbe retiring member from tho old
Hoard, be having been defeated (or rcnomlualiun
through a cuucuifpiicklng process resorted
to by (be mends of Mr. tleorgo
Orth, the present incumbent. Dr. Don*
Insoii was also a candidate at the nominating can*
cus which resulted In favor of Mr. Orth, and do*
sires again to test uls i*oyularlty among tho Hepub*
llcsn constituency of tbs ward. Henry Huger* is a
now candidate, who bams hi* hopes upon the cup*
port of the young men anti his war record. Too
gentlemen named, under ordinary clrcum*
stances, would go into the content pret*
ly evenly divtdru, but so much drumming
lias teen done bv intimate friend* of Mr. Tib*
bit* as to lead to the conclusion that he will bo
successful. Mr. Tibblts Is ueim-wd business moo,
combining a liberal amount of couluess and dehu*
ersliou with tho ttr*t*mentloned quality. Thla
hot rendered him a valuable member of the Com*
mon Council in tuu past, and will cause his eocond
advent, if thu choice should fail upon him. to be
hailed with Uellghl. It Is not likely that the Demo*
crals will put u candidate in the held. They ore
laboring under a demoralization that leaves them
utterly without hope of electing auy one to the
position.
THE PUBLIC >VOBKB BOARD.
Tbe Common Council have again refused to coo*
firm Cspt. O’Coonor’e somlnatloa as a member of
tho Hoard of Public Works, This result was not
of tbo Ant vote. Tbe con*
tractors are opposed to Mr. O'Connor, and claim
to hold a balance of power against him In the Hoard
that will prevent his reinstatement to the position.
.This reference to the Influence exerted by the con*
tractors Is baaed upon a remark atlrlbm*
ed to one of them, that he hold
the voteS of four Aldermen In his hands, and there
fore had It in his newer to confirm or reject O'Con*
nor at wiu. As far aa can he ascertained. Mayor
Black has no idea of deserting the man whom he
has seen tit to select for the position. Should ho
adhere to the determination not to send in another
name, or, In other words, to light Itotnon that line
to the hitter end. the Important duty of attend*
Inc to the public works of the city
will devolve noon the two remaining members,
the presence of uuc of these Is almost constantly
clomnnded In the office. Hence tne duty of per*
sonal supervision of Improvements must necessarily
devolve upon a single Individual, with such assist*
ance as can be rendered by the Cllv Engineer and
his assistants. Therefore, If the contractors
"light their work becanse of a tack of surveillance,
the blame must to a great extent rest upon
the Common Council, whose members
seem bent upon replacing a tried, honest,
and canaole man with one new to the
position for no other reason than a Gratification of
political predilections. When thlncs reach this
pass It may well be questioned whether there Is
any honesty In politics, or whether honesty Is cn*
titled to a place In the political catechism.
THE CHAMBER OP COMMERCE.
The members of the Chamber of Commerce are
now fairly settled In their now quarters, and ex
press themselves greatly pleased with them,
more particularly because they have no stairs
to climb in order to reach the hall. This fact
should bo borne In mind, as It will exert an Im
portant Inflnencn In (he final decision upon the va
rious propositions now being considered by the
Hoard nr Directors of the Cnamber. A ground
floor hall will unquestionably oo demanded aim
voted, no milter from whom thn proposition may
cornu. Therefore a change of location is loss
doubtful than It seemed to be a week
ago. It is not yet known when
the Hoard of Directors will make another report
upon the subject. It may he thattho question will
bo brought up once more daring the next or following
week. When It Is, look oat lor a liberal amount
of chin-music and some pretty close voting. The
opponents to the proposition made by the lion.
Alexander Mitchell appear now to bo stranger than
ever hetoro. Certainly they aro more hopeful.

Methods of unprincipled Grocers, who deceive their Customers
and deal out Poison to make an illegitimate profit, '
When grocers, to make a larger profit, substitute another Powder (the Royal Unking p owj
called for), they commit a greater wrong against the purchaser than that of the jeweler who i J
a paste for tho real diamond; ortho picture dealer who dellrers a fairly executed "ohrorno" f "****
oil painting; or orenthnt of the banker who pays out counterfeit money In lieu of the gold hiid
Itora demand.
Tills Is strong language, but true; for the reason that these people lose only thslr money
Innocent purchaser of a spurious baking powder loses both mono} and health, receiving lilUo
value in return. Hence, being bought for food, U goes into the stomach, and there th*

dyspepsia and frequently more serious diseases Is often planted. Recent chemical Invettlguta 1
Cream Tartar and baking powders, by Boards of Health and eminent chemists of the Bast have sh 1
that most of the so-called baking powders on the market, and especially those sold cheap | a
without name or label to show responsibility, contain alum, as a. cheap substitute for Cr»am Tiruj

•• There In a mania hero for selling oduleroted goods because larger profits can be made than by *5.
In* tbe pure standard articles. Many of these dealers, whom 1 bar© talked with, make no attempt to
excuse themselves, but boldly admit selling an Imitation baking powder for tbe Iloyal every diy
Now this thing must bo stopped. 0 Buch Is the recent report of our Chicago agent.
Almost every mall brings us letters from Indignant housekeepers, who have been Imposed opoa
by tbolr grocers soiling them worthless powder In bulk, assuring them that It was the gMulte
"Royal” Baking Powder.
Wo are advised of several Instances In which our empty cam have been refitted with cheap povj»)
and palmed off on the unwary purchaser as the Royal; but Id most Instances It is weighed out bytij
pound, at prices ranging from 25 to 80 cents per pound, which pays on the cheap stuff an enona«*
profit, and without any proof to show purchaser* that they are getting what they call for, ereept U*
assurance of the grocer that It Is the Royal Baking Powder, and costs them less because not In cm '
"Royal" Is not sold In bulk, and could not In any event be sold at so tow a price. The powdered^
In this way Is, doubtless, mado from alum, wbtcb costs, perhaps, tho tenth part of what pure Cmo
Tartar would cost.
Those who have used tho Royal Baking Powder, os pot up In cans, are not likely to bs deeelndi
more than onco.
Yot thousands, who are not familiar with It, but who, having read of the recent exposures of tks'
use of alum and other adulterants In baking powders, and that the Royal Baking Powder vu
especially recommended for Its purity and wholesomsness, while anxious to get the genuine uj
easily Imposed on, not knowing that It comes only in cans securely labeled; and here the
injury is done, for the poisonous bulk powder Is Innocently bought and used; thus tho grocer commits*
often on Irreparable Injury on the health of bis customer, and a wrong against our property, fa’
grdat popularity of an article like tbo Royal Baking Powder, with Its marvelous sales everywhere,
naturally stimulates unscrupulous dealers to attempt to palm off on tho Innocent purchaser cheap
imitations of tho genuine article.
We aro now accumulating evidence of such deception—to call It by no harsher nsmo-sod M
tho earliest moment will prosecute, to the fullest tension of the law, all who are found
baking powder In bulk, representing such to bo the genuine Royal Baking Powder. “Roys!" b
our trademark and exclusive property. We will thank any one who bos been Imposed on to this
way to write us, giving name of the grocer, and when purchased. For the further protection oil
our lady-friends, who have shown such preference for our powder, and given much valuable sld, we f
will, at tho earliest moment, publish a list of such dealer* and places of business.
Tho following are specimens of the letters we are constantly receiving In reference to the deception
practiced
Rotal Sixmo Povptn Co. t
(7m1.—1 ordered a can of your baking powder of a Arm on Lake street, and they sent me aequue
box with your "Royal Flavoring Extract ” label on, filled with a powder,’and 'pasted up, and nprt-‘

It had been opened and an attempt made to close it up so it would appear whole. I am utlded It U

My dealings with the firm are at an end. Will giro you the name It you care (or It.
