The alum baking powder run wer de
aided In tht court of criminal correction
Monday morning br Judga Clark. Th ver
dict In tha rate of th Great Western Tea
Coffee company. No. 725 Franklin avenue,
was "guilty of the Bale of baking powder
containing alum violation of the pure,
food law of Missouri." lie fine assessed
by Judge Clark waa $100.
By agreement between counsel, F. N.
Judson and 8. 8. Bass for the atate and T.
B. Harvey for the defenae, the verdict In
this cae la to apply also to three others.
They are B. Wolterlng. J. O. Fauat and ).
E. Taule, charged with selling Bon Boo,
Raiser and Bloasom baking powders con
Ulnlng alum. Five other cases on which
the testimony would have been the same
were nolle prossed by the state at the con
clualon of the trials last week. This was
lone In order that the retail dealers should
not be given too great Inconvenience, a
tha Intention of the attorneya for the state
waa to get a conviction and demonstrate
thereby the validity of the atate's pure
food law, which Interdicts the use of alum
In all food producta In this state on the
ground that It la a deleterious substance
and dangerous to tha health of the public.
Thi la the second time that the pure-food
law ha been vindicated In Missouri In ref
erence to the sale of poisonous baking
powders. In the other case, that of the
atate against Whitney Layton, now of East
St. Louis, the defendant .was convicted as
a manufacturer of making and selling alum
baking powder. A fine of $100 was s
eased. Tha case was appealed by Layton
to the supreme court of the state. The
supreme court handed down a decision In
the case that affirmed the finding of the
lower court i the rwod that the leg
lslature had a right t" protect the health
of the public by proper police laws, and
that, aa alum had been declared in the
Engliah courts and In other foreign coun
tries to be an Improper and unhealthy
Ingredient In food the law 'was undoubt
edly valid The supreme court also re
ferred to the fact that baking powders and
other food products containing alum were
excluded from the commissary ration of the
armies of the United States and of Great
Britain, another point showing It to be un
der the band of suspicion os a Substance
dangerous to the public health.
The manufacturers of the alum baking
powder have made a hard fight td contlnu
their sale In this state. The law that pro
hibits the sale of the alum baking powder
was paaaed by tbe legislature In 1898. Ttai
Brat case, that of Layton, came up In 1890.
While It wa pending In the supreme court
la 1901. a determined effort was made to
repeal the law before the legislature than
In session. The bill was reported from the
senate committee unfavorably and in lan
guage that atamped alum as one of the most
dangerous of Ingredients used in food.
The senate committee's report also took
fling at the powerful lobby that was ma n
talned at Jefferson City bv the so-called
alum baking pewder trust. The report gave
the names et the various manufacturers In
the United States, a long list of them, who
comprised this trust. . Srnator James Or
chard waa' the chairman of tnls committee
and It waa to his efforts lod those of his
feltow-commltteemen that the failure of the
bill waa due.
In Judge Clark's opinion In the pressnt
caaes he atated that the defense bad shown
through eminent chemists that their baking
powder was made with C. T. 8. or cream
tartar substitute. The chemical component!
of this substance, aa shown by tbe defense,
were agreed to by the eminent chemists for
tbe atate, who positively asserted that they
constituted "burnt alum." In other words
Judge Clark'a decision waa that C. T. 8.
waa. In effect, commercial alum, and there
fore Ita use wss a violation of the pure
food law of the state. Its use under tome
other name than alum, which It Is, cannot
exempt either tbe manufacturer or the
Vender from prosecution' and conviction
under a broad law framed for the purpose
of protecting the health of the public from
the use of alum or other substances of a
deleterloue and dangerous character.
Mr. Judson. counsel for the state, stated
Monday that It was the Intention to con
tinue the prosecutions In Missouri of deal
era who continued to sell baking powdsrs
which were made with alum or O. T. 8.
Time will be allowed for the present decl
alon of Judge Clark to become known, and If
cases of violation of the law are then found
manufacturer and wholesale grocers will
be arrestee1 wherever evidence Is obtained
against them of such sale.

but by the addition of new music, new
comedy and new speclalttea It hai been
brought thoroughly up to the minute and
would not be recognised a the aame piece,
The new song, "My Little Zulu Babe," In
the first act, by Williams and Walker, Is
not only well sung, but cleverly presented
as well. The scene opens with ft tropical
setting and shows Mr. Walker in tbe cos
tume of a Zulu princess. After the first
verse Mr. William enter In tbe guise of
a Zulu warrior. -A chorus of dusky Zulu
maidens concealed behind palms make their
appearance opportunely and the general ef
fect la decidedly pleasing. Miss Walker's
"Hannah from Savannah," with grotesque
dance won aeveral rounda of applause.
George Catlin'a Chinese Impersonations
were realistic. Mr. William' song, "The
Phrenologist Coon," was a big hit, while
Mr. Walker's "Elegant Darkey Dan" and

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. March 0. (Special.) Al
though the republic of Cuba will be formally
Installed, according to the present pro
tram, May 20, with a full republican form
of government, there Is a wldespresd belief
that Cuba will not exist as a separate na
tion for ft longer period than Ave year at
Nearly every American who haa returned
from Cuba during the last few months, and
there have been scores af Americana In
Washington, asserts that the bpslness ele
ment or tne island is practically unanimous
In tbe belief that Cuba must ba annexed
to the United States la order to exist at all.
Naturally, the island is So closely identi
fied In It business Interest with this coun
try that the tariff exist Ins between tha
two nations must prove burdensome In the
extreme to tbe new republic. All talk of
concession contemplates, the .reduction of
dutUs to only a slight degree, so that eves
should the program of the president and
the republican leader of the house be
adopted It would prove but ft temporary
means of relief.
The amount of American capital Invested
in Cuba is far greater than la aranerallv
auppoeed. The American Interest on the
Island are bound to predominate commer
cially from the outset and naturally those
Interests will have aa Important bearing
upon the political future of tbe Island, it
Is to be assumed, therefore, according to
the best posted men, that but year or two
will elapse before the demand for annexa
tion will be as widespread aa waa the de
mand for political Indeoendence four veara
ago. A a state or territory of the United
Btatea, prosperity I bound to come to
Cuba, but as an Independent nation, with a
tariff wan raised against It in Europe and
America, many believe the Island eon ti
little better off than during the Spanish re
Reaard Oleo Bill as lalqaltoas.
Little activity has been manifested hr the
manufacturers of oleomargarine in opposing
the,-called Tawaey bill In the senrte. Thi
apparent lack of Interest has caused some
surprise among those who did not know the
reason for tht letharrv. it la WrnaA
however, on reliable authority, that every
member of tbe cabinet, with the alngle ex
ception of Secretary Wilson, looks upon the
bill as It passed the house aa an InlnultAiia
meaaure. Thle la based upon tbe assertion
recently made by Attorney General Knox
that the bill I clearly unconstitutional.
The same authority - asaarta nt v.
president would veto the measure beyond
doubt but for his knowledge that there is a
widespread demand for ImrlaiatiA
as the Tawney bill la to absolutely break

COINAGE OF THE PHILIPPINES
New Silver A ate r lea a Dlae Is ta Take
tha Place at tha Familiar
WASHINGTON, March 30. In view of
the prominence In congress of the subject
of a circulating medium In the Philippine
islands, the division of Insular affairs. De
partment of War, has prepared the follow
ing Interesting account of the existing
coins In our Asiatic archipelago.
The proposition is to provide ft silver coin
for the Philippines to take the place of the
Mexican peso, which for years ha had an
exclusive hold a the coin ot account In
th current trade and trafflo transitions
of tbe mainland and archipelagoes ot east
The Idea of special coins for colonial de
pendencies distinct from those cf tbe
realm Is bv no means new. In fact. It is as
old as the colonial system of Great Britain
In th now United States of America and
apparently originated for use right here
on our own soli within about five years of
the first permanent foothold of the white
man on the North American continent.
About the year 1613-15 a coin known as
tbe "hogge money." on account of that
animal being atamDed on It, was Issued by
the English crown in shillings snd six
pences for circulation by the Virginia com
pany. But two of tha former and one of
the latter coins are known to have sur
vived the" lapse of nearly three centuries
and are priceless In historical Interest.
Nor waa thta the only Instance ot a colon ;al
coinage provided by the mother country
for circulation among ita American sub
leota. The first mint In the now United States
was established bv the general court ot
MaSBaohueett at Boston. May 27, 1652, In
denominations of shilling, sixpence and
threepence, and known ft the "pine tree
money." It continued until 1683, whed tbe
mint master. John Hull, died, and the
mintage ended colncldently. Lord Baltimore
had shillings, alxpence and pennies coined
In England for hla Maryland colony In
America In 1661.
A monopoly for coining "tokens" for
America was granted by England In 1722
Tbey were ot a mixed metal, resembling
brass, known as the "rose Americana"
coinage or "Woods money," William of that
name of Wolverhampton, England, having
ft corner on the coinage, which had a wide
As ft commercial transaction the United
States instituted an Invasion of tha field
ot the Mexican peso, with the following
result: The coinage act of 1873 provided
for the coinage of a "trade" dollar ef 420
gratne of standard silver, not Intended for
circulation In th United States, but for
M in trade with China and the East. It
was practically simply an Ingot of a par
tlcular weight and fineness. The cost of
coinage was met by the person bringing
tne Damon to the mint for coinage. Un
intentionally, however. It became a legal
tender In the United Statea to the amount
of 15, with other subsidiary coins of the
Ia 1876, through the depreciation of sil
ver, tbe 420 grain In the trade dollar fell
below 1 in gold, which made Its circula
tion on th Pacific coast a source of profit.
Tbls compelled the taking away of the
legal tender quality of the trad dollar by
act of July 22, 1878.
In 1877 the trade dollar In the Eaat
shared the fat of that In the West by be
coming worth lea than fl In currency,
whjch waa the circulating medium of that
section, which necessitated tbe discontinu
ance of th further coinage by order ot the
secretary of tha treasury. To this time
t35.39,860 had been coined. Most of these
trade dollar had been exported, but large
number were also In circulation In different
parts ot the United State. Th act of
March 3, 1887, which became a law without
Preatdent Cleveland' signature, provided
for the redemption at par of all trade dol
lars presented within six months. Of the
whole sum coined, $7,689,038 wa presented
and redeemed. Of these ft great number
had been reimported from China In expec
tation ef this climax of the government.
The were melted and converted Into sil
ver coin and atandard allver dollar.
Th condition which embarrassed the
circulation of the trade dollar In 1874-1
have ceaaed to exist, so far aa th Phil
ippine ar concerned, the United State
ha now th power to fix the value and th
legal ender quality of whatever coin it
may see fit within Its own Jurisdiction, with
th logical result of ultimata acceptance
a eolna of account in tbe region not dom.
Inated by a western nation.
The chief medium of exchange In the
Philippine Islands Is the Mexican ailver
dollar (peso) ot 416 grains of silver of tbe
fineness ot 02-1000.
In 1887 th Spanish government Issued ft
distinctly Filipino peso, which ba cir
culated aid by aide with the Mexican sil
ver dollar. Th Filipino peso, containing
leaa pure ailver than th Mexican dollar,
1 still in circulation, but constitutes only
small percentage af the amount of silver
In us la the island. Th exchange value
of th Mexican dollar fixed by tbe Philip
pine commission waa formerly 60 cents, and
is new at .the rate of 12.10 for $1.00 gold.
Tha colas In current circulation In tbe
Philippines are: Spanish Filipino silver
