TITE OMAIIA DAILY DEE: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1903. Bread Legal and Illegal The Royal Baking Powder is a pure, grape cream of tartar powder. Its greater healthfulness and absolute superiority over other powders are shown by the United States Government official tests, and are so universally recognized that its use is approved and encouraged by health officers at home and abroad. Guard your food against tho alum backing powders. Alum baking powders are considered so injurious to health, and their promiscuous sale a source of such danger, that their use is univer ally condemned by physicians and health officers. In many States the law requires that they shall be branded to warn consumers that they contain alum. In the District of Columbia, under the laws of Congress, the use of alum in bread, biscuit, cake and other food is a misdemeanor. Alum baking powders may be known by their price. Powders sold from ten to twenty-five cents a pound, or twenty-five ounces for twenty-five cents, are not made of cream of tartar. FIRE AND POLICE CUT DOWN forces Art Reduced by Board in Com pliance with the Charter. BQTH DEPARTMENTS ARE DISPLEASED Two Chiefs Say This , Action Will Tend Greatly to Impair the Service They Most Glv the City. our city patrolmen," iald Chief of Police Donahue. "With a total of ninety-eight men the department Is pushed to the limit all the time to police the town In any decent way." Mayor Moores has estimated a deficit of KOOu In the lighting fund. This being true a curtailment of both electric and gas lighting during November and December may be necessary. Action was taken by the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners Thursday morn ing toward reducing the Are and police force because of lack of funds to carry the present quotas to the end of the year. The comptroller supplied statements showing an estimated shortage of HS.Ono In the fire fund and 19,006 In the police fund If the full forces are continued to Decem ber SI. According to the commissioners nothing remains, under the stringent provisions of the new charter, but to put about half the 119 men In tho fire depart ment and about one-fourth of the ninety eight men In tbe police department on fur lough, without pay, for the months of .September, October, November and Decem ber. This resolution, drawn up by Com missioner Rrontch, was adopted by the board: Whereas, The funds provided for the maintenance of the fir and police depart ments Is Insufficient to keep theae depart ments at their present standard to the close of the present fiscal yenr, to do so creating an overlap of about Jit.ooo In the police and 118,000 In the fire department. And, whereas. The laws hold an official personally responsible for any expenditure In excess of the levy; Therefore. Me It Resolved, That the finance committee report to this board the feasibility of reducing the fire and police departments that the expenditures may come within the amounts fixed by law. Cltr Vp Aralast It. "It Is worth a councilman' or tbe mayor' liberty and peace and happiness for a long time to come to attempt to vote dollar' worth of expenditures over the current year's revenues," said Assistant City Attorney Herdman. "I don't say that tho new charter treat the city justly, but a far a I ran learn the municipality ha no more right to have a police department. If it hasn't the money to par for It, than It ha to buy balloon. This town 1 up against It, that alL There 1 nothing to do, far a I know, but to cut the fire and police departments to a point where they rtU no more revenue than W per eent Ot trio current lanes and as much more ot the current taxes as may be paid In." Annually for year shortages In the fire and police fund towards the close of the year have been announced, but by some city hall legerdemain the' department have been maintained a usual and overlaps created,' which were paid out of the fol lowing year- Incomes. This left the two department perpetually behind the game. Depart meat Will Be Crippled. "If a reduction In the Are department I mad the town will be at the mercy of flame and the department will be com pletely disorganised," said Fir Chief Sal ter. "W hav been doing our best with Insufficient appropriation for year and w cant do any more. Our small depart ment I now stretched to the utmost limit. A reduction In force of one-half cannot be made without practically ruining It." "A one-fourth cut will take off fifteen of Attack of Dlarrlioea Cored by One Dose ot Chamberlain's Collo, Chol era and Diarrhoea Remedy. t was so weak from an attack of diarrhoea that I could scarcely attend to my duties, when I took a dose of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Clarrhoea Remedy.
