iirilv added fuel to the flames. Pow-
derly would not aecept the committee'
men the delegates had elected. He de
dared their elections Illegal. Then the
climax came. The deleated leader spoke
with remarkable clearness, as he said :
"Gentlemen, vou niuat either obey the
spirit ol the constitution or declare the
office of general master workman vacant
I now tender you my reaignation.'
He was unable to keep the delegates
In the line he marked out for them, and
this decinlve move seemed the only
thing left for him to adopt. Immedi

left the hall, as he said, to attend to

a aurprlae to all the delegates, although
a few of them said it was what should
have been done long ago.

Oaslasd, Or., Nov. 20. A dastardly
outrage was committed Sunday morning
about 1 o'clock on Thomas Sutherlin,
who resides on his farm about three
miles south of Oakland, by two men who
entered his house for the purpose of rob
bery. At the time of their entrance,
Sutherlin, who lives alone, was asleep.
Thev awoke him and demanded his
money. He said he had but 40 about
tli nri-minee. which they took, and then
demanded more. Butherlin insieted that
waa all the money he had. They then
took him to a locunt treH and hung hira
by the neck, trying to extort a ccnfegBion
tlmt Im bad more money. The limb
broke, and thov took him to the barn
and buna him the second time and left

lin manaited to untie himself. They
then took him to the house and tied him
to the bed. put paper on his hands,
liehted it and burned his hands to blis
ters. When the robbers succeeded in
Kottinir no more money tbey left the
liniiBU. and Sutherlin went to hie brother's
house near by and gave the alarm. The
robbers wore white handkerchiefs over
ilw.,r fu,-.. One man was tall and the
other was short and heavy set. Slither

Washington. Nov. 27. The Internal
revenue report shows that 6753 sugar
producers were licensed to manuiaeture
BiiL'nr durinu the fiscal year ended June
30, 18(13, and $9,375,130 was paid as
honntv mion 4S2.125.081 pounds of sugar.
The total production of sugar of all kinds
was 515,250,701) pounds, llie operation
of the law had the effect, so far as cane
smrar was concerned, to inciease the
nrruluntinn an d lessen the number of
sugar factories or licensed producers
rii.t smrar produced during the year
amounted to 7.083,288 pounds, compared
with 12,004,848 pounds in 1802. lhere
were but two sorgum factories in opera
tion during tbe year, one at Medicine
Lodge, Kan., and the other at Fort Scott
Kan. They produced 1,020,100 pounds
of sugar. The imports of sugar during
the fiscal year 1893 were 3,i6G,445,34i
pounds and the exports, 29,232.282.
12.000 LIt.i Lost.
London. Nov. 26. A dispatch to the
Times from Terehan says 12,000 persons
rwr'mhfid in the eartluiuake at Kuchan.
Ten thousand bodies have already been
rAcovorsd and 2000 are still in the ruins.
Fifty thousand cattle have been destroyed
so far. The shocks still continue.
The Iloyal Baking Powder has the en
viable record of having received the high
est award for articles of its class great
eat strength, purest ingredients, most
perfectly combined wherever exhibited
in competition with others. The reeult
at the Chicago World's Fair is no ex
ception. In the exhibitions of former
years, at the Centennial, at Paris, V lenna
and the various State and industrial
fairs, where it has been exhibited,
iuilm-s have invariably awarded the
Koval Bakina Powder the highest honors.
At tbe recent World's Fair the exam
inations for baking powder awards were
directed by the chief chemist of tbe Ag
ricultural Department at Washington.
The chief chemist's official report of the
tests of the baking powders, which was
made for the specific purpose of ascer
taining which was the best, shows the
leavening stfengtb of the Koyal to be 160
cubic inches of carbonic gas per ounce of
powder. Of the cream oftartai baking
powders exhibited, ibe next highest in
strength tested contained but 133 cubic
inches of leavening gas. The other pow
ders gave an average of 111. The Royal,
therefore was found of 20 per cent.
greater leavenlns strength than its near
est competitor, and 44 percent, above
all other tests. Its superiority in other
respects, however, in the quality of the
food it mades as to fineness, delicacy and
wholesomeness, could not be measured
by figures. .. .
It is these hiuh Qualities, known and
appreciated by the women of the coun
try for so many years, that have caused
the sales of the Royal Baking Powder,
as shown by statistii-s, to exceed the
sale of all other baking powders combined.
Begistratlon of Chinese
Washington. Nov. 25. The new reg
ulations as to the registration of Chinese,
under the extension of the Geary act,
were issued from the treasury depart
ment today. They provide that all Chi
nese laborers in the United States must
register before a collector of internal
revenue before May 3 next, else be sub
ject to deportation. Chinamen who
have registered under the original
Geary law will also be required to again
register under its extension now. The
new regulations follow the same lines as
the old treasury regulations for Chinese
rpirlatration. except that one creditable
witness instead of two must certify to a
Chinaman's good character when he
presents his application to register, and
this witness may be a Chinaman or
other person, instead of a white person
only, as in the old regulations. On
making applications, the Chinaman
must present, at his own expense, two
photographs of himself, one of which
will be attached to the certificate when
issued to him and the other attached to
his duplicate certificate, which will be
tiled in the collector's office. In addi
tion to the certificate having the photo
graph attached to it, the certificate it
self must contain the Chinaman's name,
his age, late residence, occupation,
hight, color of his eyes, complexion,
physical marks and peculiarities for
indeutification. Provision Is made for a
Chinaman securing a duplicate certifi
cate, but proof of his having lost the
original must be proved to the satisfac
tion of the court, through which, only,
can he obtain a new certificate.
Washinotos, Nov. 27. Tbe tariff bill
of lH'JS was born this morning. But
little of the excitement which has at
tended its advent throughout the country
at large was manifested at the capital.
The committee was slow in getting to
gether. Wheo the members were called
to order by Chairman Wilaon at 11 -"SO,
half an hour behind the tune for meet
ing, the proceedings were very informal.
A copy of the bill was presented to each
member, and Chairman Wilson briefly
staled that he would probably be able
tomorrow to furnish additional data,
which would include a comparison of the
new bill with the present law, printed in
parallel columns, in order that the
changes may be apparent at a glance.
Then followed a little desultory talk and
the session ended. It scarcely occupied
fifteen minutes. The republicans, under
the rules, have ten days in which to
prepare their report, at which time the
majority report will be finished and the
bill presented to the house.
It is estimated that it will reduce the
revenues, on tbe basis of importations of
1892, about 150,000,000, with an im
mensely largely decrease cf the tax
burdens to the American people. The
administrative law is retained with a few
amendments suggested by the experience
of its operatioa.
Breckenridge of Arkansas says of the
bill: "We have struck out from the
tariff all these features that distinguished
it as a "combine and placed what 18
usually known as 'raw materials,' such
as wool, coal, iron ore, wood, and the
like, on the free list. A few chemicals
are added to the free list, and the cruder
forms of manufactures, such as pig-iron
and similiar articles, are Rrtly reduced
from their present extremely high duties.
We refuse the extraordinary protection
that is now given to transportation; that
is, we do not grant rates that will enable
an article, especially a crude or bulk
article, that is produced in one part ol
our vast country to overcome the great
cost of transportation to romote localities,
while a less rate will relieve both people,
and as consumption increases, when ex
tortion is prevented, the trade will be
maintained, if, in deed, it be not greatly
Following is the comment of the
Standard relative to the new tariff bill,
and it is a fair sample of the tone of the
English Press. It says: "Chairman
Wilson's proposals are not intended
primarily, if at all, for the benefit of for
eign producers, but it will be the fault
of England's enterprise and industry if
we derive no benefit. If the Mckinley
tariff damaged the American trade and
industry, it also dealt a heavy blow to
English Industry. We may cordially
welcome a reversion to a more honest
and reasonable policy, without inquir
ing too narrowly into the motives which
helped to produce the change. Whether
the bill will achieve for American man
ufacturers all the advantages which its
projectors anticipate remains to be seen,
but it will at any rate serve to clear the
ground of labor disputes."

Kansas. Nov. 24. A secret meeting
of Kansas Populists was held tonight in
this citv. It is learned from an autlien
tic source that action which will proba-
blv result in a split in the party in Kan
sas was decided upon. Among tliose
present were Jerry Simpson and sixty
others, all high in Populists circles
ami from authentic sources it is
stated that the meeting denounced in
most unoualifled terms the Kan
sas administration of Populists as rotten,
entirely incompetent and silly. They

Hew Tariff Bill Suits England
Lonpon, Nov. 26. The Times says
editorially of the new tariff bill pre
pared by the ways and means committee
in Washington :
"The tariff bill as drawn is a bold and
comprehensive measure of reform. The
free list would probably be more pleas
ing to British exporters if it contained
more substantial reductions on manu
factured articles. Although there is
room for hope of material relief regard
ing many of these, there can hardly be
any general revival of confidence of
prosperity in the states while business is
in its present stagnation. Anything
tending to a solution of the fiscal diffi
culties, therefore, is welcome. We re
joice on general grounds that the demo
crats appear bent upon making a serious
and vigorous effort to end existing uncer
Aftnr rnmnarinff republican and demo
cratic views of the situation, the Times
"The democratic views are much more
creditable to the good sense and probity

of tne American peopie ; mereiuro, o

until the contrary be shown to be true."
Another Chapter of Blount.
Washington, Nov. 25. The Depart
ment of State this afternoon gave out an
other volume of Blount's report. It con
sists of a number of affidavits, a long
list of statements and interviews, cor
respondence relative to the landing of
the marines of the Boston ; the protest
of Governor Clechorn ; the letters that
passed between the Provisional Govern
ment and 'statistics of the products of
