Tbe Most Appalling Disaster Since lhe
Johnstown Flood.
The Oty of Galveston, Texas, U.
S., Devastated by Hurricanes
and Raging Billows.
Regarding the terrible disaster faintly
portrayed further along in ibis column,
the latest news received at Chicago snys:
Dalian, Texas, Sept. in.—Charles S.
Dlehl, general manager of the Associated Press, Chicago: From the latest reports, which are considered reliable, the
disaster at Galveston and along the coast
bas not been exaggerated, The waters
of the gulf and the bay met, covering
the island to a depth of six to 12 feet.
During the sudden flood a most terrible
storm was raging, the wind blowing
about 80 miles an hour. Many of the
dead have been uncovered, others are
still under the debris, and others were
carried out to the sea. It is not possible
to give at tbis time a reliable report as
to tbe number of dead. From estimates
made by reliable persons who have jnst
come from Galveston it is believed tbat
not less than 1500, and possibly as many
as 5000 people weredrowned. Of course
the wounded are numerous, The dam.
age to property is most shocking, Some
of the best public buildings and private
establishments were wrecked. Thousands of homes were swept entirely away.
It is quite safe to set this down as one of
the greatest disasters tbat ever visited
the United Stales. The loss of prop
erty is irreparable; tbe loss of life is
appalling. G. H. Deally,
Manager Dallas News.
ibe wind   had veered to iht
Hardb a Dry House.
"Very few if any buildings escnprd
injury. There is hardly n habitable, dry
bouse in the city. When thepeoplewbo
escaped death went out lo view the woik
of the tempest nnd   foods ihey saw the
most horrible sights imaginable,   In tbe
three blocks from Avenue N to Avenue
II, in Tretnool street, I saw eight bodies
Four corpses were in one yard. The
whole ol the business front for three
blocks in from the gulf was stripped O.
every vestige of habitation, lhe dwellings, establishments ami every Btructure
having been either carried out to sea or
its ruins piled in a pyramid far into the
town, according to the vagaries of the
tempest. Tbe fin>t hurried glance over
the city showed thai the largest structures, supposed to be the most substantially built, suffered tbe most.
"Tbe Orphans' home, Twenty-first
and Avenue M, fell like a house of cards.
How many dead children and refugees
are in the ruins could not be ascertained.
"Of the sick in St. Mary's infirmary,
together with Ibe attendants, only eight
are understood to bave been saved,
" The Old Woman's home on Rosen-
beck avenue collapsed. The Rosenberg
school-house is a mass of wreckage.
The Ball high school is but an empty
shell, crushed and broken. Kvery
church'in tbe cily, wilh possibly one or
two exceptions, is in ruins.
Many Soldiers Perished.
"At the forts nearly all the soldiers
are reported dead, they having been in
temporary quarters which gave them no
protection against the tempest or Hood
No report bas been received from the
Catholic Orphan asylum, down the
island, but it seems impossible lhat it
could have withstood tbe hurricane. If
it fell all tbe inmates would without
doubt be lost, for tbere wns no aid within
a mile.
"The bay trout, from end to end, is in
ruins. Nothing bul piling and the wreck
of great warehouses remain. The elevators lost all tbeir superworks, and their
stocks are damaged hy water.

line nl the Most Awful Tragedies ot Modern
Houston, Tex., Sept. 10.—Richard
Splltaue, a well-known Galveston man
and day correspondent of the Associated
Tress in tbat city, who reached Houston
today nfier a terrible experience., gives
tbe following account of tbe disaster at
" One of tbe most awful tragedies of
modern limes has visited Galveston. Tbe
city is in ruins aud the dead unnumbered 1 am just fiom the city, having
been commissioned by the mayor aud
citizens' committee to get in touch witb
the outside world and appeal for help.
Houston was lhe nearest point at which
working telegraph instruments could be
touttd, the wires as well as nearly all tbe
buildings between here and the Gulf of
Mexico being wrecked.
"When I lelt Galveston shortly before
noon yesterday, the people were organizing for the prompt burial of the dead,
distribution of food, and all necessary
work afler a period of disaster.
A Terrible Tempest.
"Thc wreck of Galveston wns brought
about by a tempest so terrible that no
words can adequately describe iis intensity, and by a Hood which turned the
city Into a raging sea. The weather bu-
tenu records stiow that lhe wind attained
a velocity of 84 miles an hour wben tbe
measuring instrument blew away, so it is
impossible to tel] what was thc maximum. The storm began at 2 o'clock
Saturday morning. Previous to that a
gieat storm hnd been raging in the gulf,
nnd the tide was very high. The wind
nl first cume from Ibe north and was in
direct opposition to lhc force from the
bay on the liny pari of the city.
"About noon it became evident the
cily was to be visited witli disaster.
Hundreds ol buildings nlong tbe water
front were abandoned, tbe occupants
fleeing to higher portions of the city,
livery borne was opened to ihe refugees
black or white. The wind wan rising
constantly, and the tain fell in torrents
The wind was so tierce thai tbe rain cul
like a knife.
Entire Cily Submerged.
" Hv 3 o'clock the waters of the gulf
nud bny met nnd by dark the entire city
wns submerged, Tbe flooding of the
electric light plant and the gas plants
left tbe city in darkness. To go out into
the streets was to court death. The wind
was then at cyclonic velocity, roofs, cisterns, portions of buildings, telegraph
poles aud walls were falling, and tbe
noise of tbe wind and the crashing of
the buildings was terrifying In tbe extreme. The wind and waters rose steadily from dark until 10:45 Saturday morning. During all this lime the people of
Galveston were like rats In traps, Tbe
highest portion of the city was lour to
five feet under water, while in tbe majority of cases the streets were submerged to a depth of 10 feet. To leave
a house wns to drown. To remain was
to court death In the wreckage. Such a
night of agony has seldom beeu equaled.
" Without apparent reason tbe waters
began to subside at 1:45 a. in, Jn two
minutes tbey bad gone down two feet, and
hefore daylight the streets were practically freed of the flood waters,   lu the

Spokesman Review, Spokane: "The
Sullivan is in a position to commence
tbe shipment of fully 100 tons a dny at
once, if it was so desired," said Colonel
W, M. Ridpath, Inst night. Colonel
Ridpath has just returned from from nn
inspection of ihe well-known Kootenay
mine, and has some great things to say
ot it, chief among which is that when it
is fully developed it will surely be oue
the largest and most profitable mines in
British Columbia. Speaking of the matter of output, which is an important one
to the mine at this time, Colonel Ridpath
" Wbeb the question of cheap and
rapid transportation of ore from tbe
mine to the terminus of the North Star
brancb of tbe Craw's Nest Pass Railroad
at Kimberley, a mile and n half nway,
has beeu settled, all will be smooth sailing. A wire trnuiway bas been contemplated, but there is Bn easy grade for the
dtslauce, and a wide or narrow-gauge
railway could be built nt comparatively
stnul! cent. This would be much cheaper in the end, as it would also afford
means of transportation for the large
amount of timber that will be needed in
tbe mine when shipping is put on a large
scale. Whether a spur will be run by
tbe railroad company, or whether we
shall bui'd a narrow-gauge line, is yet
undecided, but action will be necessary
in tbe very near future. Tbe building of
a spur from the wide-guage line would
be entirely feasible and would be a desirable solution of tbe question.
Mile's Presto! Development.
"The development ofthe property has
been excellent and it i= in splendid shape
for work, both above and under ground.
There are on tbe ground eight residences
and buildings, ore-sca'-es and other conveniences. The mine is shipping from
one to two car-loads per day. Tbe ore
is hauled from the mine to the railroad
by wagon. Tbis will do for tbe present,
but it is not desirable to carry on large
shipments tbat way. During the year
we put iu a 10-drill comp-essor witb a
boiler and complete outfit lor its operation. Work was started with tbe machine drills last week and tbis will permit much more rapid and satisfactory
" We bave two immense ledges on the
property, and work has been concentrated almost entirely on one of these.
Thia developed ledge at first looked like
a blanket vein, but further examination
has proved it to have tbe slight dip characteristic of the region, The - evelop-
ment of this ore body with tunnels aud
shafts has proved it to be 25 feet thick of
solid galena, running from 40 to 65 percent, lead, a small quantity of zinc and
a fair percentage of iron, making it a
very desirable smelting ore. This ore
body has been fallowed to 120 feet depth
on tbe dip of lhe vein, and it has been
traced from joo feet to 400 feet on its
" Tbe tonnage of this ore body is seen
to ))e enormous, when it is realized tbat
it requires ouly 5,'i or 6 cubic feet of ore
in pb.ee to make a ton. Tbe operations
of the company, under the management
of Charles II. Wolf and Superintendent
Burdsall, has progressed most satisfactorily and we feel tbnt tbe mine has a
great future very plainly before it."
Some general facts of interest were
furnished by Colonel Ridpath, Tbe Sullivan group consists of three claims, oue
of which is about five acres short of full
size. It is situated north and a little
west of CrHnbrook, on tbe Crow's Nest
Pass railroad and about ■/* miles east ol
tbe enst shore of Kootenay jlake. It ia
reached from Nelson by boat at thc junction of lhe Crow's Nest road uml the
Kootenay Valley line, and thence up the
line to Cranbrook, thence by the North.
Star spur lo Kimberley. From Kimberley the Sullivan lies about oue mile
and a half west, on a high, precipitous
mountain, with an easy grade to tbe collar of the shaft on the main ledge. It ia
exceptionally well situated for mining
and tbe handling of ore, as tbere ia a
small lake near the property from which
excellent water runs, making a gentle
fall to Kimberley. This line will reach
the heavy and extensive body of timber
that is available for the use of the mine.
The stock in the mine is own-rd principally in Spokane, the main holders being Senator George Turner, Charles W,
Wolf, ti. I) Sanders, Frank T. Post, the
estate of tbe late judge R. B. Blake.

und the next morning he deposited ber
ut the door of lln* first of the stores.
That afternoon be hurried borne
from business us soon as he could get
away so thut he might help in the puck-
lug ami other prupurul ions for moving
ou the following ility. His conscience
rnthor reproached liim for having left
tin* laltor of shopping and of packing
both to his wife, ttnid Ins remorse was
Intensified when ha opened the door of
their room and caught sight of her
tired, worried face.
"Oh, I'm so gliul you've come," she
said eagerly. "I need your advice so
luiii-li. My head is actually whirling
wiih all I've been through lo-diiy."
"Poor thing," sold the husband penitently. "I ought to havu known bettor
thnn to make you do all Unit yourself,
especially us I really wns ufruldof llm
job myself when I shunted ll off on
you.    It  must   have been dreadful."

in Uii* problem before her, "they pretend that these an* i-ut glass*. You can
see for yourself that they ure not the

her husband's hands, "but ihey say
they're German or Knglish cut glufls,
Which isn't, so good as ours. What do
you think'.'"
"I think- they're gloss,' returned the
husband rather vugilely after an examination.
"Xow." the wife wont on, "If they're
pressed glass, I paid too much for
them; but if they're, nny kind of cut
glass, tin*;- wen* cheap, one-lifth of
what American cut would be,"
"Then," said ber husband impressively, "you did quite right to buy them."
"Anyway, they'll do for the kitchen,"
concluded the wife with a sigh of relief.

"And we're not going to move in ti>-
morrow?" demanded the husband, in
a voice eloquenl with disappointment,
"Certainly not, unless jou think I
can keep house with two class pilch-
ers," replied Uie wife with dignity aud
some truce of injured feelings. "I've
been going through oue slore afler another all day long till I'm dlst) with
all ibe things I've seen. Where do you
think I had time to bny anything'.'"
The husband begged her to buy provisional utensils, sn ihnl they eould
move Into tbeir house certainly In another dny. U was in trembling hope
thai he returned home on the following
evening.   Ho found his wife lying upon
the bed.
"I'vo such a headache! ' she sighed
The husband looked around the room.
Upon tbe uuuitclpiece ho saw the two
glass pitcher- of the duy before, ami
nt their side u vinegar cruet, lie eyed
the cruel bard.
-Humph!" he grunted, with strong
disapproval In his tone.
liis wife's eyes bad followed bis. Ai
this reproach'bhe arose proudly from
ber bed. took him by the nnn, nnd led
Iilm In the window. There wus to be
seen n heavily laden trunk, from whieh
men and t»yn were busily engaged In
ciwrylng packages of all shapes and
sizes  Into  the  house. She pointed to
""There," she said, wilh reproach and
a headache and forgiveness ond unrecognized merit all mingled, "those are
kitchen things."
With the unreasonableness of men,

The patience of the woman, though
tried sorely, was not upset for a moment. She displayed a large roll of
"You misjudge me," she said, lapping
him affectionately upon lhe cheek,
"You have not yet learned to know yoni
wife. There are 07 different packages
there, and for them I have spent less
ili-ni $5, a few cost ten cenls nplece, and
t he ot hers cost fivo cents. So," she added, with a little pride, "you see I am not
so extravagant as you thought."
"Pardon me. dear." suid the husband,
both penitently and anxiously. "Then
the kitchen is furnished and we enn
move In to-morrow?"
"No-o-o." replied the wife, "not quite

-nine, of the things we need. Pots nnd

sweet smile, "eost more than five or ten
The husband sighed and resigned
himself to the boarding house for another week. The history of what has
occurred since then is not worth giving
In detail. You ean see the wife in the
stores any day al Ihis time. She is slill
patient, industrious and sweet natured.
The husband sometimes aceoiupunicii
her. lie began going with her white he
still retained ilie Impression thn! manly decision could hasten tbe slow, tortuous process of shopping. ITe still is
ber companion nowadays nl times, because he is possessed of the notion
that it may some time bo possible for
him to discover how- she spends her
time at the stores, but he knows tlmt it
is liest thnt he should uot accompany
lier. The lwo natures of the male and
the female grate. The man cannot grasp
the Hitbtlo distinctions Unit are seized
by intuition by thc finer sense of tbe
woman,. For Instance, one day Hhe
showed him a four-quart saucepan.
"The price of this." she said. "Is -19
rents.    Now in the other store WC ean
get a saucepan like it for *I7 cents. Now,
which om* otigbl we to buy?"
"The other," said tbe husband,
"llut." objected the wife, "they ure
different, and I don't know which is
the beat"
"Buy both," said the husband,
"ltut,'' objected the wife, "we need
only one of them."
"Flip a cenl," said lhe husband,
"And perhaps get Ihe worst of it,"
raid the wife.
"Then   don't  buy either," snlil    the
man, promptly,
Of course Un* proper solution of lhe
difficulty was logo Ion third store nnd
flud a third saucepan of a third price
unl qualityi bul ii never ocaiirrcd to
the husband to silggcsl such a thin!.',
ami as for tht wife aim was bo confused
by lhe unkind behavior of her husband
that she always foiled to remember the
proper procedure iu such cases until
rhe gol home, Then she was accustomed to tell Imr husband where he had
beeu mistaken, and intervals of coolness would arise between them. So the
husband has given up accompanying
his wife to Un* stores.
Six weeks have passed and the husband no longer asks his wife overy
evening if she thinks she will be able to
get, the few things still lacking on the
morrow, so thai they will be able to
move Inlo their new house on the duy
following. He has schooled himself to
a point where he is now resigned to
making his dinner from one small piece
of beef, and no longer dreams of tin;
beauties of housekeeping. Al Ihe same
time hopes have begun to spring up.
Mis wire is talking of n trip to the
"I'm so fired," she says, "and I really
need to go somewhere to rest."
That, makes him Ihlnk that the shopping musl be nearly over uud that the
next move hIh- makes will be to begin
housekeeping,   N. Y. Sun.

Is useless to rend yours.    We can only

"Well, just rend that poem," snid lhe

"It Is ns 1 feared." replied thc editor,
nfter rending the poem. "The poem
shows no promise whatever. Pardon me,
but ll is simply absurd und utterly useless."   '
"That's just whnt I thought," repliod
the Kchoolmnte. "It's a copy of some

Pot Correotlon i-> Glasaes,
The three defects uf eyesight which arc
most commonly encountered in otherwise
lu-ultby persons uud whieh cuu be mure
or less perfectly overcome by uieuus uf
glasses are nearsightedness, farsightedness und astigmatism. These ure all important, for besides thu discomfort uud
atiLoyiiUce of imperfect sight the iim>luu-
tury efforts which the sufferer makes to
see better strain the eyes and tint only injure tbem, but also give rise through re-
Hex action tu headaches uud vurious
nervous disturbances.
Neursig'hleiluess. .shortsightedness or
myopia, us It is variously culled, is u conditiou of thc eyeball, usually a lengthening, iu conse-queuco of which the rays of
light nre brought to u focus in front of
the retimi. uud su the object is blurred.
This condition may exist frum hirth,
but is usually lhe result of too much und
loo eurly use of the eyes, ns in the case
uf students, engravers, women who do
tine sewing uud 10 forth. Thus we may
say that putting children to work nt some
of the kindergarten exercises, such as
performing und druwing. is iu a double
sense u shortsighted procedure.
Mnny   nearsighted   people   refuse   to
weur glasses, preferring to deprive themselves uf sight fm- everything beyond the
nose rather than tu injure tbeir personal
appearance, ns tbey think. This is another shortsighted policy, for besides losing much uf the joy ot existence which
cuiiies from seeing lhc beautiful things
Cbout und nhovo us such persons are very
liable tu suffer frum intlnmuuitiou of tlu
eyes, produced by conslnnt struiu.
A less common defect is lung or fin
sigbtedness, or hypennotroplu. This te
the opposite of myopia, the eyeball being
tlatteued or shortened uud the rays of
light consequently not coming to a focus
by the time lhey roach the retina,
Iu this case the eye often corrects the
defect more ur less successfully by making the crystalline lens more convex, bul
It dues this at the expense of the sufferer's nervous force, nnd so we often iin.I
tired uud congested eyes, headaches, indigestion and even serious nervous nffec-
lions. The effort to correct thu vision is
entirely voluntary and cun be overcome
ouly by the tilting of suitable convex
The third nud most common defect is
astigmatism, lu this condition there Is
somo irregularity of the surface of the
eye or of the lens, by mentis of which the
image ns It reaches the retina Is distorted. Untreated astigmatism is a frequent
cause of headache and other nervous disturbances. The only relief is the wearing of glnsscs, ut least whilo rending,
writing or whenever nenr objects are
looked at.—Youth's Companion.

By fllsi fc'dllb Miller sad Company at the
Open House.
Tbe Calgary Herald says: A large
audience, considering the wet night,
greeted Miss Miller and her talented
company in tbeir concert on Monday
night, Tbe fact that a Calgary audience
liberally applauded all the numbers and
demanded encores to not a few is, to
those who know Calgary audiences, a
sufficient guarantee of the quality of tbe
concert and it is no exaggeration to say
that tbe programme was both excellent
and popular.
Miss Kdiih Miller is a contralto of
high order and happily without the sensational methods which so attract the
musically uneducated. Needless to say,
Miss Miller sang charmingly, powerfully
and artistically,
Stanley Adams is on old time favorite

What la a Wlld.Cal Mine?
Western Mining World: Will some
croaker or one per cent money loaner
wbo thrives on tbe ready circulating
money of a miniug camp, and who ia
everlastingly cautioning people to beware
of " wildcat" mines, have tbe good grace
to define the term, Let him do 10 and
every condition he applies will be met
by producing a grent mine which, at one
time, possessed the alleged attributes. Is
a mine a " wildcat" because the stock in
the company owning it is sold at a nominal figure? If so, then the Granite
Mountain whs a " wild-cat," lor itsstcck
was sold for less thnn 10 cents n share,
yet it paid over ^13,000.000 in dividends,
and ts still being profitably operated.
Iron Mountain was sold as low aB 8 cents
and has paid over half a million in dividends. These mines were once only
prospects with 10-foot boles, and so was
every oilier great mine.   The fact is a
wild-cat" is only such when time and
development show it cannot he made a
mine, and yet it may, as a prospect, have
had great promise aud have been worthy
the expenditures made iu an effort to
win a mine.
Electric Lights.
The electricians completed wiring tbe
new hospital building yesterday. There
will be about 60 lights used there. Today work was commenced on the Fort

orders at the office of the secretary, W.
F. Gurd.

The Herald feels very sorry to huve to
allude once more ton class of h-pings wbo
occasionally attend public Mitertnin-
uients and meetings in Crnnbrook. Tbe
last emp of these things were strongly in
evidence   at  the   recent    entertain ment
given by the Australian Comedy company, The linger ;„>] nun ui lhe audience
was there to witness mid to enjoy a first-
class dramatic representation given by
the above mentioned company. The
perfoiuiauce was of a high order, and
the only un pie-maul f.utuirs connected
wiib the tttdii wer-. iul»rpoUllo_s during pathetic passages in the piny by tbe
scum alluded to, cr by coarse remarks
aud offensive moists between acts from
the same source. Such creatuiesnie unfit to be in the company of self-respecting people, and were eui'eutlv unaccustomed to it, kuowiug no etiquette hut
tbat of lhe dance 01 beer ball, They
are disturbers of the pence, nud should
be treated as audi by the constabulary—
either arrested nnd locked up or thrown
out of the hull.
The expression, "U's a wildcat" is
often heard regarding mining claims
which are either uot rapidly developing
into mines, or Upon which money expended in exploration hns not achieved
results that may have been reasonably
hoped for in accordance with surface
indications; although such claims may
prove total failures as mine!*, as long as
they were brought forward in good faith
hy their owners, they are not "wildcats."
A "wildcat," properly speaking, is an
alleged prospect, totally devoid of merit
as a possible producer of precious mineral wealth, used as a means in the end
whereby conscienceless individuals or
corporations hope Ic—nnd geneially do
—separate gullible people from their
money. A "wildcat" is simply a cold-
bloo 'ed swindle, somewhat after the
gold biick order.
A Most Delightful Outing  Home for Those
Who Desire II.
The C. V R. house hoat whieh ia now
completed and ready for occupation hns
been visited by a large number of Nelson people, all of whom declare it to be
nn ideal outing borne. Tbe boat is completely furnished in every respect. The
four state rooms with their four double
aud four single berths are equipped with
everything one would desire in a bed
room at home. In the dining room is
all ihnl a dining room lequlres, silverware, glassware, etc., and the room
itself is sufficiently large to accommodate any party tbat could travel on the
hoat. Tbe kitchen is complete, loo, nnd
in fact, there is nothing lucking ati*,-
where. All of the rooms are carpeted
and the hallway is laid with oilcloth.
Upstaiis you are in the open nir, with
an awning to shield you from the sun
and a hammock if you would lay down
and read and rest. No more delightful
place, to spend a week or two, could be
imagiutd, provided, of course, the boat
is anchored in some one of tbe thousand
beauty spots of Kootenay Lake. No-
where, perhaps, iu all the Dominion of
Cnnada is there a body of water offering
to the man of the reel and Ily or he of
the gun such inducements as are offered
anywhere on Kootenay Lake and no
where nre there more delightful secluded places than can be found here.
And il is to give visitors the opportunity
of seeing tbis, uuder most pleasant conditions, lhat the C. P. R. has cau.td to
be built this house boat. It is to be
rented to parlies and at a figure which
makes it within the reach of everyone
who can afford an outiug. Tbe boat
Itaelf will rent at $5 per day, witb n
minimum chnrge of $20. It will be
towed lo any point lhat can be reached
from Nelson at the regular towage
charge of 50 ceuts per mile, with a minimum towage charge of $5. All that
those wbo rent the hoat have lo do is to
stock it wilh eatables and drinkables,
Nothing else is required hy them unless
they desire a servant and this the C. P.

As KIMBERLEY is bound to be the MINING TOWN
OF EAST KOOTENAY, being situated in the center of the
strongest mineral zone in British Columbia, containing such
mines as the North Star, Sullivan, Quantrell, Buckhorn, Stem-
winder, Black Bear, Kootenay Consolidated, etc. Now is the
time to purchase lots, as there are only a few left, and as the
C. P. R railway arrived in town this week, a rush for lots will
leave somebody in the cold.
