members of the order at Armstrong
that the strike was in violation of its
agreement with the company and com-
manding them not to join in it. It is
in effect tin* same order which was
posted at Denver.

satisfied with the wages paid here,
which are higher than at other shops,

London, April 18.—At a meeting
to-day of ship owners of London and
provincial ports the subject of the
strike at Hull, the notice given by the
dock unions at Liverpool that unless
the demands were complied with a
strike would be inaugurated and the
general course of union working men
toward the shipping interest were dis-
cussed, and it was resolved to make a
united fight against dictation on the
part of union men whether the latter
should attempt to enforce their dicta-
tion by a general strike or by strikes
The agitation regarding the Hull
strike continues to increase in London
and elsewhere. Two thousand sea-
men and firemen gathered to-day on
the West Hill and displayed great en-
thusiasm in support of the Hull
strikers. A resolution was carried in
favor of a national strike in support
of the demands of the Hull strike n ai
a protest against the course of the
employers in antagonizing the unions.
The men afterward formed a proces-
siop and marched to the docks.
At a great open air meeting of dock
laborers here yesterday, Chairman Ed-
wards opposed an immediate strike in
all the ports of (ireat Britain to aid
the Hull strikers, but .1. H. Wilson,
labor member of parliament, appealed
to the men to act promptly and
untriedly. The meeting finally passed
resolutions calling upon union officers
to ascertain the views of the men oe-
fore deciding on n strike.
The favor wiih which the new \ read
1 made with Royal ltaking Powder in-
stead of yeast, 'tas l eeu received by j
our beM housekeejters ana most ex- |
pert bread makers is really wonderful.'
"It sftvea all the hard and tedious j
work of kneading and moulding,"
writes one; "Less than an hour from
the dry flour to the most perfect loaf
of oread I ever saw. writes another;
"Fresh bread every day,*' says an-
other. " and that the lightest, finest
and most wholesome is something to
live for;" "We relish the bread bet-
ter than the old kind:'' "It is ahead
! ryf any yeast bread I ever baked;'*
"The bread was whiter and softer; '
"liest of all." writes an enthusiastic
housewife; We < an eat the Koyal un-
fermented bread when freshly baked,4
'jr even when warm, with perfect im-
punity. It is actually an anti-dys-
"This bread has a 'nutty taste that
is peculiarly pleasing." writes ftill"
another. This is owing to the fact
that the active gas-producing princi-
ple of the Royal is derived from the
pure grape acid.
The great value of this bread arises
from the fact that in it are preserved
ail the most nutritive elementsof flour,
some of which are decomposed and de-
stroyed by the action of yeast. The
lost of these properties is what inakev
fresh yeast bread unwholesome. The
use of the Roval Itaking Powder in-
stead of yeast is found to make a finer,
lighter bread, devoid of all dyspeptic
qualities. The same jras—carbonic—
is produced as where yeast i« used.but
it is evolved from the baking pow-
der itself, and not from the flour.
Thereby the bread is made more
wholesome and actually anti-dvspep-
tic. The greater convenience where a.
batch of the ti nest bread can be made:
and baked in less than an hour with
no danger of a sour or heavy loaf,
must by appreciated by everyone.
The receipt for making this bread is
herewith given and house-keepers will
do well to cut it out and preserve it.
To make one loaf: "One quart flour,
1 teaspoonful salt, half a teaspoonful
sugar, heaping teaspoonfuls Royal
Raking Powder, half medium-sized'
cold boiled potato and water. >ift to-
gether thoroughly flour, salt, sugar
and baking powder; rub in the potato;'
add sufficient water to mix smoothly
and rapidly into a stiff batter, about
as soft as for poundcake; about a pint
of water to a quart of flour will be re-
quired—more or less according to the
brand and quality of the flour used.
I)o not make a stiff dough, like yeast
bread. Pour the batter into a greased
pan, 4:_..\8 inches, and 4 inches deep,
filling about half full. The loaf will
rise to till the pan when baked Bake
in a very hot oven V> minutes, placing
paper over first 15 minutes baking, to
prevent crusting too soon on top.
Bake at once. Don't mix with milk.''
Perfect success requires the most
careful observance of all these details,
and the author of the receipt empha-
sizes the statement that Royal Baking
Powder only can be used because it is
the only powder in which the ingre-
dients are prepared so as to give that
continuous action necessary to rai^e
the larger bread loaf.
To every reader who will write the
result of her bread making from this
receipt to the Royal Baking Powder

Bki:oravk, April IS.—Trouble lias
already begun for ex-Regents Ristic
and Heltmarkovic and the late minis-
try. The new government, as a result
of investigations already made con-
cerning the finances of the country
since Alexander acquired power, has
made a demand that the ex-regents
and ex-ministers shall reimbuse the
country for V-Miuhhi dinars misappro-
priated during the regency under
pretext of having been use<

The general acquiescence, if not ap-
proval. with which King Alexander's
coup d'etat was hailed is already inter-
rupted. The Liberals have gathered
couraged since Thursday night and now
apparently hope to incite the people
against the government. The Liber-
als state that they make their stand

Belgrade, April J5.—A bloodless
coup d'etat was effected here a-t
night and King Alexander, the youth-
ful ruler of Servia who has heretofore
governed through regents, to-day rules
in his own nam ?, he having accom-
plished his plans at a banquet given
last night to celebrate his success in
passing the examination prescribed for
Servian students. M. Riestics and
General Uelimark, the regents, and all
the ministers of state were present as
were also a large number of the friends
and supporters of the regents.
For many months past the situation
in Servia has been critical owing to
the abuse of their power by the re-
gents and state officials. Affairs had
become so bad that the king decided
to take the reins in his own hands. Ic
accordance with this determination,
plans were secretly laid by means of
which the regents and the ministry
would be ousted without opportunity
for opposing. Unsuspectingly the re-
gents and ministers attended'the ban-
quet and while they were enjoying
themselves at the palace detachments
of soldiers and bodies of police took
possession of their houses and occupied
the government buildings
At midnight, while the festivities
were in progress. King Alexander pro-
claimed that he had attained 1. > Ma-
jority and that he assumed with the
Skupstchina the government of the
country. As a matter of fact he had
not attained his majority. According
tn Servian law hi* does not become < f
age until he is 18 years oldand he will
not be is for over a year.
When th«' deposed regents and min-
isters heard the proclamation they
were dumbfounded. The king and
his advisers acted with great prompti-
tude, and soldiers, who were in wait-
ing, at once placed the regents and
ministers under arrest and they were
sent to rooms which had been pre-
pared for them in the palace, where
they are under guard.
The Servian army is loyal to the
king, llad.it not been t.ie coup d'etat
would not have been possible. After
the issuance of the proclamation and
before daybreak the king proceeded to
the barracks where the troops were
under arms and was received with
many expressions of loyalty.
The proclamation which was issued
everywhere in the country to-day
bears the king's signature. In it
Alexander declares that the constitu-
tion has been in sore jeopard v. the
rights of citizens imperiled and the
constitutional position of parliament
so abused that the king must end the
unhappy condition of affairs. He
therefore declares that he has come of
age and has assumed kingly power.
Henceforth the Servian constitution
acquires its full significance.
The regents have been deposed, the
cabinet dismissed and a new ministry
appointed. M. Dokitch is the new-
So far the act of Alexander appears '
to meet with the approval of the pop-
ulace. 1 he shops are closed in honor
of the event, nnd the streets are
thronged with people discussing the
