Aiiiiouiirt'i JIliiiHi-lf Candidate
Wasiiinoton, Feb- 23. It aeeirm since
Btmutur Hill bug developed ratlier a
prominent place in the presidential list,
and le liable to be the democratic candi
date, (hat the friends of Sylvuater I'enn
oyar are prick Inn up their eaiMomewbat
and beginning to think of bi-n aa vice
prnaidential candidate, Legialative
Clerk Oilfrer. of the w.nate, who lea
democrat and an Oregon man, has been
aaked about Pennoyer and haa spoken
n rather fluttering Utrina of him. It
eeuici fiegolialiona are being conducted
between Hill's frienda and the people of
the various atatea, and Oregon is one of
these, which U to l looked after. Hill's
idea, it Is believed, il to have the few
votes which Oregon will cast at the
Chicago convention, taken away from
Cleveland In any event and placed to
his credit, and in return Pennoyer is to
receive some vice-presidential voles
from New York, or some other state
which ts controlled by Hill. The pur
pose In bringing out Pennoyer is to get
the votes not only from Oregon but from
the other Pacific Coast status, and con
sequently break any Cleveland combina
tion at fork there.

Kasas City, Mo., Feb. 21. At 9
o'clock yesterday moining an enormous
wolf hrjot started over Crawford and
Boarbon Counties in Kansas. As a re
ult over 300 wolves lie dead tonight.
Both counties and others adjoining were
x-otired by over 6000 men, women and
children armed ;in all conceivable ways.
Two t!iouaml jack rabbits were also
captured in the general round-up. Ow
ing toan error in signaling there was
but one break in the line, which re
dutd the number of captures, hut an
other hunt will take place next Satur
day to finally wind up the foxes and

Albany, N. Y., Feb. 21, Tonight it
is understood Tammany decides not to go
to the Chicago convention under instruc
tions for anv one. Prominent Tammany
men said possibly it would be better
politics for Hill to no to Chicago simply
as democrats, and not with him as the
iron-bound choice of any organization,
and possibiy too, Tammany may prefer
to go as a powerful organization, not de
termined to press any one man, but as
the same time with a warm, and, if
needed, earnest friendship .for Hill.
Then the power of each might be greater
upon the delegates from other states.
Boisk, Idaho, Feb. 20. An extremely

number of men leave for the vicinity of
the mine tonight to slake out claims.

Dkadwood. 8. D, Feb. 20. Judge
Thomas granted a decree of divorce to
Mrs. James J. Blaine, Jr., with the
custody of her child, (1000 to pay ex
penses of the suit, and $100 month as
Judge Thomas, in announcing the
opinion, said the testimony showed
that the cause of separation was the un
friendly feeling of the family and es
pecially of the elder Mrs, Blaine. So
far as Mr. Blaine was concerned, the
plaintiff was properly treated, but Mrs.
Blaine did all in her power to make ihe
life of the plaintiff unhappy. Young
Blaine's conduct was very reprehensible.
The evidence shows that the desertion
was the result of the machination of his
mother, and that his treatment of the
plaintiff was reprehensible and bad in
The Hew York Press Exposes That " Iapor
Uat Sill" Boslsesi.
The article credited to the New York
Press, going the rounds of the papers, in
which it Is alleged that unfavorable ac
tion has been taken in the New York
Legislature against the Royal Baking
Powder, proves to have been a canard,
gotten up and circulated by opposition
baking powder makers for purposes
quite apparent to every one.
The Near York Press, in exposing the
fraud, says: ''No such legislation as
thai stated in this article haa ever been
had in this State or in any legislation
to our knowledge." The lie is made
from whole cloth. TheP.ess disclaims
any responsibility for the publication,
and objects to being made a party to
such methods adopted by some baking
powder manufactures in their efforts to
substitute their goods for others now in

Soientifio Bread Making.
At the recent annual meeting of the
American Chemical society, held in
Washington, D. C, the question of the
value of carbonate of ammonia as a
leavening agent in bread, or as used in
baking powders, came up for discussion
in which Prof. Barker, of the university
of Pennsylvania, and president of the
the society ; Dr. Richardson, late of the
United States department of Agricul
ture in Washington ; Dr. Win, MeMur
tie, late professor ofj chemistry in the
university of Illinois ; Dr. E. H. Bart
ley, late chemist of the Brooklyn, N. Y.,
board; of health, and professor of chem
istry of the Long Island College, and
others took part,
The consensus of opinion was over
whelming in favor of the employment of
ammonia. It was stated as a fact that
ammonia rendered the gluten of the
flour more soluble than the original glu
ten, and that the bread in which this
action was produced by carbonate of
ammonia must be more digestible and
hence more healthful, and because of
the extreme volatility of carbonate of
ammonia and its complete expulsion
from the bread in tho process of baking,
it is one of the most useful, most health
ful and most valuable leavening agents
These exclusions are borne out by the
very elaborate and exhaustive experi
ments made by Prof. J. VY. Mallet, of
the university of Virginia, which shows
conclusively that bread made with a
baking powder in which one per cent, of
carbonate of ammonia is used, in con
nection with crjam of tartar and soda,
is not only of uniformly better color and
texture, but a product more wholesome,
because the ammonia serves to neutral
ize any organic or lactic acids present in

SPOKASE GIVES BIGHT OF WAY.

Spokank, Feb. 22. President Hill
of the Great Northern, returned East
Saturday evening, after making one of
the most successful tours of the North
west since the time of Villard. He
came first to Spokane, met 2,000 citizens
in the opera house, explained the diffi
culties that his line must encounter to
get into the city, and what he proposed
to do if he should come here, and then
asked for the right of way through the
cily. A mass meeting promptly voted
it to him. Then Mr. Hill referred them
to his engineers for details, and went
westward on his tour. It was then
learned that the contemplated rigM of
way drove straight through the heart
of the city, and ayoiding the uxe of
streets called for about four miles of pri
vate property worth a million dollars.
The right-of-way committee had a week
to do the work, and after putting in
eighteen hours a day and bringing every
conceivable pressure to bear upon the
citizens they completed the work, and
when Mr. Hill departed he had a guar
antee. At Seattle he was not a whit less mod
est, asking for enough ground along t!e
harbor rim to lay eight tracks, the ru;ht
to construct the elevated railway and a
perpetual franchise. Today the wod
was given which will put ah army of ID,-'

Chinese Eiclusioa Bill Faued.
Washington, Feb 19. The Senate
has passed Dolph's bill to continue in
force tor ten vears the existing anti-
Chinese law. ' On account of the quar
rels between Geaiy and Stump of the
foreign affairs and immigration com
mittee s of the house, it is thought by
some that Dolph's bill will be the only
one to pass this session. The bill has a
wider scope than indicated by its title,
for in addition to re-enacting the present
exclusion laws, which ate about to lapse,
it contains a section intended to meet
the difficulty the treasury officials en
countered in returning Chinese to China
through judicial decisions adverse to
their right to return them further than
to the country from which thoy
entered the United States.
The World'a Fair.
Washington, Fob. 24. The president
sent a special message to congress on
the world's fair, speaking strongly of the
progress of the work, saying that $5,000,
000 to $8,000,000 more seems necessary.
With the message he transmits the an
nual report of the president of the na
tional commission, the board of lady
managers and the board in charge of
government exhibits. The president
says the information furbished by these
reports as to the progress of the work is
not only satisfactory, but highly grati
fying. Steam 8ohooner George E. Chanoe Aground.
Euoenk, Or., Feb. 18. News has
