WAR IS STILL ON
Itoyal Company Hail Already Fore-
stalled Decree by Changing Its
Practices and Relies on Supreme
Co > t for Flmil \ indication.
(Frotn N. Y. Journal of Commerce.)
The much debated controversy in
baking powder circles over the label-
ing of "Dr. Prices' Baking Powder"
by the Royal Baking Powder Com-
pany, which controls it, has reachea
another milestone in its settlement in
the form of a decree of the Federal
Trade Commission a few days ago
ordering the Royal Baking Powder
Company to cease and desist from:
1. Using on the new phosphate bak.
ing powder manufactured by it the
so-called "over-print label" or the so-
called "new label" (which was
similar to the former red label used
on Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powdei
made with tartrates heretofore used
by It), or any lattel simulatin or re-
sembling in coloration, design or
general appearance the labels former-
ly used by respondent on its "Dr.
Price's" brand of cream of tartar
2. Selling or advertising for sale
said phosphate baking powder under
the name "Dr. Price's" or "Price's"
unless the word "phosphate" is incor-
porated as part of the name of said
baking powder on the labels thereof
and in the advertisements relating
3. Advertising or representing in
connection with the sale of said phos-
phate baking powder that respondents
"Dr. Price's" cream of tartar brand
of baking powder has been reduced
4. Representing by advertising oi
otherwise that said phosphate baking
powder sold by respondent for many
years under its "Dr. Price's" brand
The respondent is further required
to file a report In writing with the
commission ninety days from notlcu
hereof, stating In detail the manner
in which this order has been complied
with and conformed to.
As an episode in the perpetual con-
troversies of baking powder belliger-
ents this is of considerable Interest,
but according to a statement by vice-
president Frank D. Bristley of the
Royal Baking Powder Company, In
charge of the Company's sales opera-
tion, it will not have any material ef-
fect on either the company's practices
or those other phases of it which par-
ticular interest the grocery trade,
however much it may please some of
I the company's competitors who are
i commonly reputed to be back of the
I "This is an old matter," said Mr.
| Bristley, "and deals with past history
as the ruling agrees with the United
States Court of Appeals decision ot
last year, with which we have been
' co tiplying for seveeral months.
| "The Federal Trade Commission's
. -rdor to erase and desist is substan-
tia!!; in accord with the decision of
the Court of appeals and refers only
i to the former red label, and inasmuch
las we have been complying with the
'decision of the Court of appeals since
Ilast November by adopting our pres-
lent golden orange label, the present
I order of the Federal Trade Commis-
j sion to cease and desist will cause us
no further change.
"In February, 1920, we were cited
to appear before the Federal Trade
Commission in regard to the label we
were then using on Dr. Price's Bak-
ing Powder made with phosphate.
I Prior thereto a similar question was
i raised in proceedings begun in United
j States District Court in Arkansas, the
j decision of which court we appealed
'to the Circuit Court of appeals, which
| confirmed the judgment of the lower
[ "From this decision we took a fur-
ther appeal to the United States Su-
| prome Court, where the matter will be
finally decided. Pending determi-
nation of this appeal, the Court of ap-
! peals granted an injunction prevent-
ing interference with goods bearing
the red label, some of which may still
be in dealers' stocks.
"Notwithstanding this appeal and
injunction we ceased using any of the
labels in question immediately upon
receipt of notic of the decision of the
Court of appeals on November 5 last
and since that time no Dr. Price's
Baking Powder made with phosphate
has been packed or shipped under the
label objected to.
"We are very anxious fo rearly de-
cision and find determination of this
controversy by the highest tribunal
the United States Supreme Court-in
which we feel confident our right to
use our old and well established red
label with the changes prescribed by
law on Dr. Price's Baking Powder
made with phosphate will be confirm-
ed. Meantime, we are not sending out
any of these goods excepting with out
new golden orange label reading "Dr.
Price's phosphate Baking Powder."

DIKMl'KES CASE TO
BE HEARD AUGUST 24
Sensational Poteau Murder Trial Is
Set For Hearing Late This
Poteau, Okla., Aug. 2.—The trial
of P. P. Disniukes, oone of the lead-
ing citizens of Poteau on a charge of
killing his son-in-law, Orphus Var-
ner, former commander of the Amj
eican legion post here, was today set
for August 24 by District Judge Har-
vey L. Melton of Eufaula who has
been assigned to hear the case. The
defendant's counsel kdvised the court
there was a probability that a con-
tinuance would be asked at that tlnus
on the grounds that one of the lead-
ing witnesses for the defense was ill
and out of the state. The court in-
dicated that every effort would be
made to bring the case for trial on
the date set.
Varner was shot to death at the
Dismhkes home on December 261ast.
The examining court of appeals de-
nied bond, but the criminal court of
appeals granted bond in the sum or
$25,000. The case has attracted
wide attention owing to the primin%
ence of the familes involved. Dis-
mukes claims self-defense.

era District setting at Oklahoma City
when he refused to grant a tempor-
ary injuntction restraining the cor-
poration commission and the Okla-
homa Natural Gas company from car-
rying into effect the city gate rate or-
der governing charges for natural gas
delivered to local distributing com-
panies. The court held that the pow-
er of the state Is supreme in such
matters and that it can vchange or
set aside any such contracts which
may vitally affect the publii incterest.
The court did not pass upon the
merits of the itcy gate rate order
which is a matter o l'dispute as be-
tween the Oklahoma Natural Gas
company and some of the local dis-
tributing companies. This was out-
side the purview of the federal court,
Judge Cotteral held.
The Oklahoma Gas' and Electric
company brought the application fo
an injunction declaring that the ab-
rogation of the old percentage con-
tracts between the Oklahoma Natur-
al Gas company and itself viollated
the federal constitution. The com-
pany also bontended that the new gate
ate increases the cost of gas to thu
company to such an extent that it
will sustain a great loss and must ul-
timately secure a higher rate for gas
from the domestic consumers unless
the city gate order Is nullified or
greatly modified. Attorneys for the
Oklahoma Gas & Electric company
contend that the percentage con-
tracts were private contracts anc
that the Oklahoma Natural Gas com-
pany, in furnishing the gas to the
city gate of Oklahoma City, is per-
forming the service of a private cor-
poration and neither directly nor in-
directly serves the public of Okla-
Counsel for the Oklahoma Natural
Gas ompany however contended that,
in delivering the gas to the Oklahoma
Gas & Electric company, the former
company performed a public service
and acted as a public service corpora-
tion. He cited numerous authorities
10 show that all the rates and prac-
tices of public service corporations,
when selling to other public service
corporations or their customers are>
subject to supervision and control by
the corporation commission.
The Oklahoma Gas & Electric
Company attorneys announced that
they would appeal to the suprenle
court of the United States. The ef-
fect of the decision of Judge Cotterai
is tc remove all present obstacles to
the collection of the new city gate
rates for natural gas put In effect by
the corporation commission as or
