iiini i "The repxiblieans and demoirfftts held Conventions in Chicago on thl 1 3d to nominate candidates for the office o mayor to 611 the unexpired term of the late Mayor Harrison. The republicans nominated Mayor Pro. Tern, Geo. B Swift, and the democrats John P Hopkins. According to the report of Secretary of the Navy Herbert the navy of the United States is fast assuming for midable dimensions. His report place? the nation as seventh in naval strengtl among the nations of the world. Since 1SS5 twenty-five vessels have been built on modern plans, and twenty three are building. Secretary Lament of the war de partment, in his annual report, says that us Indian warfare is practically a an end m the United States there is no reason for increasing the standing army. He suggests that the army power be concentrated at seaports to assist m coast defenses. The tola strength of the army on September 30 1893, was 3,144 officers and 25,799 en listed men. Yald and Princeton played a great game of foot ball on Thanksgiving day. The latter won by a score of toO. Emperor William and Chancelloi Von Capriyi each received an inferna. machine from Orleans, France, in tha shape of samples of grains and roots. No damage was done. Notes were sent with the packages signed by G. Dechanteau. Directum, the champion trotter, record 2:05>£, defeated Saladm, the pacer, record 2:05%, in a match race on the Point Breeze track of the Philadelphia Driving Park Association. Saladm, in a fine burst of speed, (von the first heat ia 3:10.^. Directum took the next three and the race in 2:10j-4, 2:11 J^ and 2:12. After Powderly had tendered his resignation as grand master workman of the Knights of Labor at the recent meeting of delegates at Philadelphia, and insisted that he meant it, it was accepted. J. R. Sovereign, labor corn missioner of lovva, was then eiected to succeed him, and an entirely new executive board was chosen. A Doming telegram says two Mexican revolutionists came up from the scene of the trouble in Mexico and report that the revolutionists attacked the federal soldiers between Ascension and Palomas. The battle continued through an entire day. The soldiers were surrounded and sustained heavy losses. The report is not doubted, as it is known the revolutionists only awaited an opportunity to lire tipon the government troops. The report of Akerman, auditor of the World's Columbian exposition, has been .officially sent to the board of directors. That the exposition is a financial success is proven by the figures of the report. It shows, by making an approximate estimate of the liabilities and receipts up to November 14, that the net assets over and above all liabilities amount to 51,862,483.08. The average daily receipts were SS9.5J1.53, while the daily expenses were §'.!",405.3'). Ex-Minister to Hawaii Stevens has issued a reply to the report of Commissioner Blount, which implicated ^iovena in the conspiracy which resulted in the dethronement of the queen. He makes a general denial of any narticipancy in the plot, says that Blount's evidence, affidavits, arguments, etc., are wholly ex parte, and intimates that he was sent there for the purpose of convicting Harrison's administration. He says the troops were landed with instructions to protect American citizens and property and for no other purpose, and that the royalists knew this. Stevens ci'iioies a letter from Liliouka- lanl assuring him the roast itution would be upheld. Commenting upon it he says: "This document from the fallen monarch and terror-.striclcen lottery gang came to me more than twenty hours after the men of the Boston had landed. This plainly enough implies that the fallen cjueen and her confidantes then knew that we did not take part in her overthrow, which was already accomplished. Tn his report to the navy department, dated Jan. 10, Capt. Wiltz, after announcing the fact that the forces were landed, says: 'While there has been no demonstration so far, there can be no doubt that the effect of tho landing ot trie uatallion saved life and property.'" The ex-minister continues: "As far as the affidavits presented by Blount are concerned, the testimony of hundreds of such would not counterbalance the words of Minister Thurston, President Dole and Henry Waterhouse, among nonest men who are known to the respective parties. It v. T as nearly fifty Hours after Lilioukalam and her favorites destroyed her throne by a revolutionary outbreak when the men of the Boston were landed." In the football match at Springfield, Mass., on the 25th, between Yale and Harvard, the former won its seventeenth victory by a score of C to 0. In the report of Postmaster General Bi&sull the deficiency for the postoffice department for the fiscal year ending JujK 1 30, 1893, is shown to be.$5,177,171. Tho estimated deficit for the current fiscal year is $7,830,473. Patrick Eeid, supposed to hare been cms lected with the plot to blow up 3• 'ilta castle some months ago, was s -..="ti inurdered near the river Liffey n; ;/ublip a. few "days ago.

The Royal UHkitig Powdc.f has the enviable record of having received the highest, award for articles of its class- greatest strength, purest ingredients, most perfectly combined—wherever exhibited in competition with others. The result at the Chicago World's i'air is no exception. In tho cxhibi* tions of former years, at the Centennial, at Paris, Vienna and at the various state and industrial fairs, where has been exhibited, judges have invari ably awarded the Royal Baking Pow tier the highest honors. At the recent World's Fair the ex arniuations for the baking powder awards were directed by tho chie chemist of the Agricultural Depart mentat Washington. The chief chem isl's official report of the- tests of the batting powders, wiiich was made* foi the specific purpose of ascertaining which was the beat, shows tho leavening strength of the Royal to be 100 cubic inches of cari-onic gas pel ounce of powder. Of the cream o; tartar baking powders exhibited, the next highest in strength tested contained but 133 cubic inches of leavening gas. The other powders gave an average of 111. Tho Royal, therefore, was found of 20 per cent, greater leavening strength than its nearest competitor, and 44 per cent, above the average of all t he other tests. Its superiority in other respects, however, in the quality of the food it, makes as to fineness, delicacy and wholesomencss, could not ho measured by figures. It is these high qualities, known and appreciated by the women of the country for so many years, that have caused th'e sales of the Royal Baking Powder, as shown by statistics, to exceed the sale of all other baking powders combined. DUN'S REVIEW OF TRADE. THt'lff L'nrertaluty Affecting Some Dr.inclioH n? ItmiuosB. NEW Yo.'iK, Dcc-J. .—R. G. Bun's weekly review says: "it cannot bs said that business during the last week has grown better or wor.-ic. For some days the gain in demand and in transactions, which had been previously noticed, evidently continued. But aflerward tariff uncertainties were thought to affect some branches of business, and, whatever the causes, the stem of trade was less Clear. Money was everywhere abundant, with rates comparatively low, and the commercial demand was remarkably small, while the. demand for speculative tisss appeared to be increasing 1 . The volume of trade has been increasing, and yet not us much as was expected, the exchanges for last week showing a decrease of 30.5 per cent compared with last year, in part because tho week covers only five business clays against six last year. For two weeks, eov; ring the same working days, the has benn 24.(i per cent. "The railroad earnings for the. last week in November showing n, largsr decrease than for either of the preceding weeks, but in freight tratllo alone! business was about the same as for the half of tha mouth. Wheat is slightly stronger, western receipts being considerably smaller than in recent weeks, though exports are also remarkably small. Corn is unchanged in price with heavy western receipts and large exports. Pork and hog- pro- dusts are practically uncbsinged as well as oil. Cotton is a shade lower, as receipts from the plantations continue to cxe.'cd those of last year in spite of tho very positive estimates of a short yield, ;md the average of guesses by operators in the New Orleans exchange is over 700,000 bales greater than the government estimate. The stocks of American cotton in sight are again so large that they retard any ri?c in prices, PEIXUTO REPORTED KILLED. Rumor of tlio Agxaoilnittlnu of Uriizil's 1'roBldoiit Koo«lved from Montevideo. Nnw YOUK, Dec. 4.—A cable from Montevideo, received at the cotton exchange to-day, says that a rumo. is current there tha~t President I'ci-oto of Brazil has been assassinated. Early coffee cables from Kio de .Janeiro showed no material change. Sterling, exchange on London was not affected, as would have been the, it is believed, had the report been true, Tho coffee men also said that if the ivport of Peixoto's death was true they would, they thought, have received some confirmation of it. At the Brazilian consulate nothing- was known regarding the report. Those in charge \vt'tv. inel'mi'd to place no credence in it. No cable dispatches had been received from Brazil. PiioviDK.vL'i:, K. 1., Uou. 1.—The Jfotchkiss Ordananco company started up its two factories here Wednesday night on twenty-four-hour time, and tho orders for torpedoes have IK>OII largely increased. ^Charles II.

The floor of the senate and house were as deserted yesterday as they were during- the midsummer recess. A few of tiie old faces are seen in the hotel corridors, but the bulk of the members have so timed their movements as not to reaah here until Suii- diiy morning. The tariff framc-rs arc pausing in then- work until more members get in, so that the views of the leaders can be canvassed. Thnt portion of the \Vil- Kon bill which mn.dc public last Monday gives all of the tariff redue- t'on.s contemplated, but there is .still the enormous task of inakintr increases in internal revenue taxes sufficient to offset the reductions and meet the present deficiency of revenue, The subcommittees in charge of the internal revenue work again attempted yesterday to determine upon the particular feat/arcs of taxation which would meet the present emergency.- The talk of income tax and of an increase in tho whisky tax was again gone over, but with no approach to a final conclusion. It was at last decided to abandon all committee meetings until congress ha.d assembled, by which time the , general sentiment might crystallize. Little by little, however, -tthe subcommittee has en-own stronger in favor of a comprehensive whisky tax which Will include not only liquors to be made, but liquor now in bond. John .Sherman is quoted as authority that it would not be ex post, facto law to increase the tax on that vast quantity of whisky now in bond. This amounts to nearly 150,000.000 R'allons, so that an increase of 10 cents per gallon would yield the government an immediate revenue of §15,000,000. Aside from this it is estimated that an in- e-'RC on lixuor yet to be made would yield 810, Chaii-man Wilson said yesterday that he was not aware of any purpose to c:ill a democratic caucus on the tariff bill. Tie was adverse to discussing the caucus plan, yet he intimated plainly that he was opposed to it. This makes it as good as certain that the tariff bill will go direct to the house, and not be buffeted about in a caucus where PC- crecy permits ;i wide latitude of criticism and contention. The advocates of a, caucus are from that small element which, is secretly opposed to revenue refcrm and desirous of putting us many obstacles as possible in the path of the Wilson bill. They say with E. show of plausibility that "any tariff bill which is to be passed by the democratic party ought :it least to have the sanction of democratic members in a dcmocrat'e caucus." This was the ex-' c'Kfiou us.:d yesterday by one of the -inlxT.s of the ways and means c^m- m r.t-.'c. who is p-.u-tieulsirly hopeful tint a caucus nn.y be called in order to rsverse Fome of the features of tho Wilton bill. Mr. Wilson is shrewd enough to .see that hara-kiri will be destroy his measure if it ever gets before the pulling and hauling of 24.0 democratic members. For that reason his program does not contemplate any caucus. The democrats will bs expected to voice their opposition publicly in the house, as in that manner Mr. AVilson will have an added leverage toward preventing rebellion in the ranks and keeping the party majority intact.

A system of mo.stening the air of a cotton factory — as it is required in some departm nts of a mill, before blowing it into the rooms— has been the subject of much expe imeut. It has been found thai if a jet of steam or vapor is discharged into the main duct, any degree of humidity desired tan be obtained, but ;.ll the air is moistened aliico, being distributed to the dili'ei ent rooms by i he- risers leading thereto; that, however, which is best adupted lor one department in a cotton mill may not prove equally favorable for ano her. Then, too, the introduction of moisture at this- point I may wont disastrously to the. walls of ducts and risers. It is now found that this objection may be overcome, at a binail expanse, by carrying a steam pipe down through each room, tuui, „ piutiug opposite each opening in_t,}-''."

Medicis collars are quite reinstated, indeed all the winter m .ntles ^nd cloaks have very high collars. In. some of the sealskin coats they are almost exaggeratedly high, but it is a fault on the right side, for nothing 1 gives such a sense of comfort and bi- enetre as keeping the neck thoroughly warm.
