A New York concern, manufactur
ers of an ammonia baking powder
boasts that its yearly profits are over a
million dollars. While, perhaps, none
of (he makers of alum powders indi
vidually can ohow so largo earniugs
yet their profits are enormous.
A business so profitable, will always
attract to itself those wjiomi greed will
cause them to utterly disregard the
effect their tralllc may have upon the
health or life of others.
Alum buking powders are introduced
laigtdy by gifts, prises aud lottery
schemes. A pieco of glassware or
China, a child's wagon, sled,
a pewter poon or some other
article of attractive appearance, but ol
small intrinsic value or cost is given
with each purchase or a number is at
tached to the can which entitles the
cimloiiier to a similarly numbered arti
cle or to a piUe of some kind. It is in
some such way as this that the tr.ido
iu slum and smmouia baking powders,
which has now attained such giant
proportions snd their consumption by
the public which has reached an ex
tent which is truly alarming.
The highest authorities of all coun
tries condemn the use of alum in
bread without reserve. In America
the most dlFlinguiohed physicians,
chemists and hyuicnlxts have declared
Hint the IrtUllo in alum bak
ing imwders should be suppressed by
l.i w, lu K inland and France where
the subject of pure food, and its effect
upon the system, has been more fully
coixidcred'aud made the subject of ex
tended experiments by the scientists,
so serious a matter is the use of slum
in bread or other food considered to
bo, that most stringent laws have been
enacted to prevent it. Those laws are
rigidly enforced, and Uio salt of nlnni
baking powders would not be permitted
for an hour. Any one who attempted
to make them for use in food, or at
tempted to uo thorn for ruining broad,
biscuit or cake would suaer severe
The ill effects upon th system -of
food raised by alum baking powders
are the more dangerous because of
their insidious character. It would be
less dangerous to the community were
it fatal at onco, for thou such food
would bo avoided ; but their deleterious
action because imperceptible at first is
nu less certain.
Tho puckering effect winch alum
has when taken in the month is famil
iar to everyone Physicians say thi
same effect is produced by it Upon the
delicate coats of the stomach aud in
tontines. What housewife would take home
lo her family a can of alum or am
monia b.ikiuj; powder if she knew it.
Much powders not only undermine the
system, but it is pointed out that am
monia taken into the system in even
iullnolisiinal doses day after day, im
parts to the complexion a sallow nd
blotched a ppoaranoe.
It is safe to discard all baking pow
ders sold with a pr'se or gift.
What a misnomer are the words
"Absolutely Pure," as applied to bak
ing powders. Two of the largest sell

other containing ammonia and both
of those druvgod buking powdors have
stumped upon their labels and circu
lars those words absolutely pure, as a

Psrnell and Uennessy, the two most
prominent of the Irish leaders In Ire
land, died Wednesday, Tho singular
coincidence of the death of those two
bittur enemies and rival leaders in
Irish politics has caused many rumors
to be afloat.' Homo think ihst they
fought a ilnt'I, others think they com
mitted suicide and a general diversity
of opinion is current. .
The people who visited the exposi.
tion on Friday and Huturday nighis
last woro treated to a so-called Indian
ghoul dunce. There were tea real In
dians, among them Chiefs Moses and
Joseph, and although the crowd was
large the performance did aot create
the amount of .enthusiasm expected.
That part of the show, however, pleased
the children, and also a number of
people who are not ucciintoinod to the
antics of the savages.
la the caae of tho state railroad
commissioners and the Union and
Houihorn Pucifiu railroud companies
matter ffeem moro and more compli
cated all tbe time. Both corKrations
demand a change of venue from the
state cireut court to the United Btatei
oourt for the district of Oregon, each
claiming that the amount in dispute
does not lie in Marion county, and
consequently suit has been commen
ced iu the wrong county, also that the
amount is divided between several
states, the Union Pacific being a Mass
achusetts corporation and arises under
me constitution ana iuwsoi me uiiiieu
Mutes. For these reasons the company
claim the right of removal to the
United SUUis court for the district of
Oregon, at Portland, at the first day of
next session. The Southern Pacific
take the same stand, claiming that it
is a Kentucky corporation, and alleges
that the sum in controversy exceeds
2000, and that in the srit properly of
the valuation of $20,000,000 is at in
terest, and that an enforcement of the
comuiiKstoners order would involve a
1 ss of $10,000 per annum to the com
