At this season the housekeeper must look spe
cially after the baking powder.
As she cannot make good cake with bad eggs, no
more can she make cake that is light, delicious and
dainty with inferior baking powder.
Royal Baking Powder is indispensable for the
preparation of the finest food. It imparts that pe
culiar lightness, sweetness and flavor noticed in the
finest cake, biscuit, doughnuts, crusts, etc., which
expert bakers say is unobtainable by the use of any
other leavening agent.

Thric arc cheap baking ponders made from

qualities add a dangerous element to food.
ASKED TO ATTEND A CONFER

Foimnl Document Was Diawn Up
and Approved nt Yesterday's Ses

Only the Substance of It Given
Out Piesldent Mitchell Says That
No One Is Anxious foi a Strike.
Does Not Intend to Go to New

As the teslilt of eonfeienees held
jeterday nnunlng nnd afternoon, be

three ilistilct pieMdonts of the anthta
clto legion, communications weio s-ent
out oMord.iy afternoon finm the

the presidents of all the coal companies
nnd laige individual opeiatois.

iiiul other ptomlnent olihlals of the
mine workers then waited upon Super
iutondent Loomls, of the coal depait
mont of the Delawaio, Lackawanna
and Westoin Italltoad company, and
oilier piotnlnent liienl operators, and
extended them verbal Invitations to
It is not likely that anything of this
V w m M M mm MimmmX jm
sort will be done regarding these last
communications, however, as tho ma
jority of letters will be sent dlrcot to
New York headquarters, and President
Mitchell yesterday stated to a Tribune
man that It would not be practical to
leave for the metropolis before receiv
ing assurance that they would be
granted Interviews with the operators
at the metropolis.
.Piesldent Mitchell olso denied that
ho had any Intention of leaving thh
city with a number of the local officers
for New York, In order to there sectn e
a tncdlary between the operators and
mlno workers' otllclais,
Tho national president was in ses
sion t Itli the three district presidents
nil morning and part of the afternoon,
the proceedings being conducted behind
closed doors nt the mlno workers'
headqurirtets. National Committeeman
Frederick Ditcher and Secretary John
T. Dempsoy, of District No. 1, wetc
also present during part of tho meet
ing. During the morning tho plan of
notifying tho operators of the action
of tho convention and tho approval of
tho district oillcers was pioposcd and
A form of notice wim diawn up, and
at the afternoon session, which was of
but short duration, was adopted. "While
the gist of the communication was
made public, President Mitchell de
clined to give out n copy of It, until
once the missives have 1 cached their
destinations. Other matteis letatlngjo
a method of bringing about the oper
ators' attendance, April 1, nnd a peace
ful adjustment of the dlltloultles weio
also discussed by the four picsldents.
WHAT MTTCIIF.LL SAID.
Piesldent Mitchell wn seen in his
rooms nt the St. Charlis hotel by a
Tribune man, shottly after tho day's
second session. The severe cold which
troubled him Monday was still bothct
ing him somewhat,, but ho nppenied hi
much better health, on the whole, than
on tho preceding day.
On being asked by The Tiibttno
man whether there was nny possibility
of the opeiators being approached
thiottgh a third party and their at
tendance at the confeienee of Apill 1
thus solicited, tho young leader of tho
Mlno Woikora looked rather sui prised
and declared that tho only Intimation
he had received of nny such move
ment was what he saw In yesterday's
"No plans of Intel mediation," ho
said, "have been as yet discussed by
the Mine Workers' officials. Ilow
ter. In tho course of developments,
wo would be only too glnd to avail
ourelcs of any means of bringing
about the end which w ate Hying
"The tepoiL that I intend going to
New York with some of the losal of
tleluis Is entirely unfounded, as there
would bo no possible use In our going
theie unless we know wo would bo
favorably u-ioltfd by ihoe luteiested
In the roal propei ties."
When asked what ho thought of the
opinion cpiessed by the Vllko
Hairo opr.itois, reported as declailng
Hint the companies ns eoiporato bodies
lefused to havp any dealings with the
Mine Woikc-s, which are not such.
Piciidont Mitchell nightly smiled and
then deliberately nnswond' "I do not
think mt'ih of that pretoM."
NOT AVXIOUS Port STItlKi:.
In answer to another queiy icgatd
Ing the lopoited dissatisfaction of th"
mlueis In the Schuylkill nllty and
their iiversenesH to a sit Ike, PieMden
Mitchell calmly said: "I do not ipies
tlon those reports. In fact. I do not
think anone Is anxious to rtiike. The
nib cis tiro all unwilling to suspend
woik, but still they finoi an .ulju-t-inent
ol the pievalling conditions, nnd
icnllzo that the effectual mi'tlmd bv
which ti spouie this Is a Joint con
feiouce. "Tho men ate all In fuvoi ot a mil

(lass of wtiil; at the d liferent collleii .
They believe that 1111 hour's woil; in
Scrantou Is of th" same value at an
bom's woik In S!i imoMn or elcowhoio,
and this Is one of the pluses of the
mining ip;estioii which demand th
coiisideiaMnii of a joint conference."
Although piessed for some opinion
regai ding tho po-slble outcome of the
situation. President Mitchell icfu.W
to give any statement and merely ic
maiked that ho did not wish to make
any prediction?. lie will be In this city
for several more days, and w HI dally
consult with tho dlstilct presidents.
No date has been yet fixed for a
meeting of the national board. The
place and time of session are left to
Piesldent Mitchell, and he esterday
sald that ho had not detci mined when
to call it. x

SCRANTON'8 SHOPPIN3 CENTER,
A View of
The Shirt Waists
If extent of variety has any charm for you, you will look over this showing rhetl
you choose your Wash Waists for the season. Think a minute. Counting each
pattern and each color as a different style,aud each different design in White Waists,
we have one hundred and more styles in Shirt Waists at one dollar alone. We say
"and more," because the advertiser was not through with the entire variety when ho
got tired of counting. An honest estimate of the variety shown at our Waist Depart
ment gives the figures at oo styles in Shirt Waists, priced from $1.00 to $3.50.'
No such showiug as this has ever been made in Scrantou. And the merit does not
lie in mere bigness alouc. Kvery item in this immensity represents a distinct and
careful selection. It's not only the bgjest showing, it's the best we ever knew.
We'd ask your attention to prices, also or rather to the qualities at the prices.
Another strong point, and perhaps the strongest point of all. If you haven't seen
this showing already, we think you'll be interested. You will be interested anyway,
for if you have seeu it before, you'll find it different next time.
Our Hue of German Linen Suitings for the Spring of igor is now complete, and wo
show a larger and fiuer variety of styles than in any former seasou in the samo
standard quality tbat we hari always sold. This cloth is renowned for its wearing
and washing qualities and always retaius the same high lustrous finish. We show
them in all plain colors, such as Ox-Blood, Rose, Pink, Blue, Navy, Green, Buff and
Oxford, and iu stripes of all kinds and in all colors. No cloth you can buy is as
good for Waists, Suits or Children's Dresses, as these German Linens, and at the
Connolly & Wallace established price of 25c a yard they are the best offering in
Wash Goods to be had.
