A    NIGHT    OF     TERROR
Brick and Stone Buildings
Swept Away by the
Wind.
I_Y ASSOCIATED PRBS9.)
Galveston, Tex., Sept. 0.��� Hy despatch hunt to Houston, Sept. 10.���
The terrltlo cyclone that produced
such a distressing disaster iu Galveston and all through Texas was predicted by the I'nited States Weather
Bureau to strike llalveston Friday
night and created much apprehension. The night passed without the
prediction being verified, hut the
conditions were ominous. lly 10
o'clock Saturday morning the wind
wns almost a gale. At noon it had increased iu velocity and was driving
tin* ruin, whipping the pools and
tearing foliage ia a vicious manner.
Residents near the beach were aroused to the danger that threatened their
homes as stupendous waves began to
���end their waters far inland. The
gulf force drove the waves with trrest-
Ihle force high up on the beach and
the gale from the northeast pitched
the waters against and over the
wharves clioking the sewers and
flooding the city from that quarter,
The Streets rapidly liegan to till with
water, communication became dlffl-
eult aud the helpless people were
caught between two powerful elements while the winds howled and
rapidly Increased In velocity. Hail-
road communication was cut oft'
shortly after by the track being
washed out, wire facilities completely
(ailed and at three o'clock Galveston
was isolated from the world. The
winl momentarily increased, the waters rapidly rose and the night drew
on with dreaded apprehension depicted in the faces of everyone. Already
hundreds and thousands were struggling with their families against the
mad waves and fierce wind for places
of refuge. The public school buildings, courthouse, hotels, lu fact any
place that offered apparently a safe
refuge from the element, became
crowded to their utmost. At 0:.'!() p.
���a., just hefore the anamometer blew
away,the wind had reached the flighted velocity of 100 miles an hour.
Sturdy buildings swayed and trembled ami crashed, carrying death and
destruction to hundreds of people.
Windows were driven In or shatttered
''. Hylug slate; telegraph, telephone
and electrlo light poles with their
messes of wires were snapped off like
Pipe stems, and through tho air flew
���muse roofs like strlngless kites before
the hurricane. About 10 p. in. the
wind gradually subsided and by
midnight the storm had passed. The
Mter which had reached a depth of
eight feet on the strand at 10 o'clock
P. m. began to ebb very rapidly and

left llalveston men armed with Winchesters were standing over burying
squads and at the point of rifles compelling them to load tlle corpses on
drays to be hauled to barges,on which
they are towed into the gulf by tugs
and tossed into the sea. As I left I
saw a barge freighted with dead on its
journey to tlie gulf. This manner of

FRANCE TO
WITHDRAW
Will   Join   Russia  in With
drawing Troops From
Pekin.
BEGINNING OF  THE   END
United States and Japan are
Expected to Follow
Suit.
IIIV ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London, Sept. 11. ���France has formally adhered to tho Russian proposal
to withdraw from l'ekin to Tien
Tsiu. A representative of the Associated Press learns on unquestionable
authority that telegraphic Instructions were sent yesterday from Paris
and St. Petersburg to M. Pychon and
M. Deglers, respective}' thc Ministers
of France and Russia at Pekin. directing both Ministers in conjunction
with Generals Percy nnd Liuowich
to take measures to withdraw the legations and military contingents of
both countries to Tien Tsin immediately upon circumstances permitting.
Diplomatic circles iu London are inclined to believe that this step will
lead to similar action on the part of
the United Statics and Japan and
thnt while Germany may bold out till
Field Marshal Count Von Waldersro
arrives in China, she will ultimately
acquiesce leaving (Ireat Britain little choice bul to follow suit.
London, Sept. II.���A despatch ton
uews agency from Nagasaki, Japan,
says it is reported there that the Dowager Knipress of China has been
captured by the Russians at  Johol.
Paris, Sept. 11.��� M. Delcassc,
French Minister of Foreign Affairs,
has in preparation   a yellow book tho
irri'spoiident of the Associated Press
learns from authoritative source,
which reveals certain fuels now known
only at the foreign offices of the Powers. It will be seen that M. Pychon,
French Minister to China,foresaw the
"Hoxers'' movement and the complicity of the Chinese Qovernment at the
outset, lie warned M. Delcassc, who
acting rapidly, took the intiative and
proposed to the Powers with special
interests in China tlie organization of
a naval demonstration in the Gulf of
I'echili, believing that the assembling of a powerful International Beet
would make the Chinese Government
enounce all complicity witli the Hoxers. Unfortunately the Powers doclln-
I M. Deloasse's proposal whieli wus
made about the end of last March.

HARMONY

Officers of the Allies Live

MARCH THROUGH PALACE
If Clash Occurs it Will Be
Due to Action of the
Diplomats.
(BY ASSOCIATIDD PRESS.)
Washington, I). ('.. Sept. in.���The
developments of the day in Hie Chinese situation still point to a speedy
withdrawal of the I'nited States
troops from China, (leneral Chaffee
has added the weight of hi.s opinion
to that already entertained by many
Officials here. It probably is significant that the General's statement on
this point was given publicity by thc
administration.
No confirmation is at hand here as
to the report   that   (Ireat   Britain and
Germany have joined in an agreement
to remain together in Pekin regardless of the attitude of the other Powers. Should this be true, the fact
doubtless would hasten the rearward
movement of the American troops for
there is a linn determination to avoid
becoming involved iu any clash bo-
tween the Powers, such as might reasonably he expected to follow the execution of this reported British-German programme. If there have been
further responses to the Russian note
relative to evacuating, tlieir purport
cannot be ascertained. This delay
no longer interferes with *the execution of the American policy.
The part of the problem relative
to the withdrawal that remains unsolved i.s the best means of securing
guarantees for tho attainment of the
few objects set out in Secretary Hay's
note of July 3rd which have not yet
been secured. Possibly guarantees
must be obtained from tlie Iwo sides
of the Chinese government as to the
security of American treaty rights.and
the creation of a claims commission
which shall provide for tlie payment
of indemnity for the losses suffered by
American citizens and for the expenditure on account of tile Pekin relief
expedition. Then it is entirely possible that it may be regarded as necessary if any of the Allies refuse to
leave Pekin and persist in u war of
conquest that the interests of thc United States in tlie matter of trade of
thc "open door" and of nil rights now
guaranteed to the United States iu
China by treaty, be made a matter   of
Bpeclal agreement, between tlie United
States und these warring powers. It
does not follow thut because the I'nited Slates troops are to be withdrawn
this autumn from China that the
I'nited States interests will be left
completely at the mercy of other Powers.
On the contrary such disposition
uill be made of these troops that
they with others if necessary, can be
returned to China in short order. To
this   end   the entire army of   (leneral
Chaffee will be quartered in   some of
the pleasitntcst and most salubrious
portions of the Philippines If they
are wanted again in China they can
he transported inside of a week, thoroughly refreshed and littcd for effective action.
Minister Wu has not been clothed
with power by liis (Iovernment to
effect a settlement of the Chinese
trouble directly with the Washington
authorities. The ollieials are inclined to believe that no such large power
as this will be conferred upon him
though he may, as do the Chinese
Ministers in Kurope play a most important part in the preliminaries to
Ihe Institution of regular negotiations
through commissioners for a final settlement.
Shanghai. Sepl. 111. -The Taku
steamer which has arrived here brings
reports of the latest events in Pekin.
These   advices   arc   to Ihe effect that
the greatest harmony prevails among
tho olllcers of the Allies, who treat
each other with extreme courtesy and
that the soldiers ore living us though
members of, one army. Late arrivals
say that if any clash occurs during
tlie occupation of Pekin it will be
brought on by the diplomats and not
by the soldiers in tlie Beld, The niareh
through the palace was   an   historical
event,   Every army was represented.
The Russians led and the troops of
other nationalities followed in tlie
order previously reported by cable.
Russian bands and the Skihs bag-
pieps played national airs while, thc
troops tiled through the grounds and
buildings. There were many ennielis
attached to the [palace remaining
and they stood by looking as though
tbey were attending a funeral. They
were evidently deeply huiniluted. After the procession, whioh began to
move at S o'clock in the morning and
was an hour aud a half in passing
through the grounds, a party of civilians, including tlie legation ladies nnd
same prominent missionaries, were
admitted, Tea was served to them
and the palace was inspected. The
most remarkable feature of the buildings arc said to be the gildetl exterior
staircases carved from single stone
with dragons, lions and other ornaments. The Knipress' bed is trimmed
with solid gold. After thc inspection,
tlie palace gates were again closed
and no one was permitted to enter
the grounds.
The troops arriving here arc forwarded to Pekin as fast as they land.
The Ministers remain in Pekin. The
city has been entirely looted except
the palace, and auction sales of loot,
in which valuable silks, furs and
bronzes are the principal articles, are
held daily. The chief bidders at
these sales are army officers. Tlle
newspaper correspondents hold a controversy with the officers who at first
proposed that no correspondents
should he admitted to tlle palace
with the procession but the press representatives were finally allowed to
accompany the troops.
The Chinese forts at Tien Tsin,
near Taku, are still undisturbed,
The Hritish made a reconnaissance iu
that vicinity.
The liritish commander says he wil]
remain passive unless he is attacked
When he must light in order to preserve his self respect. The Russians
are expected to attack soon, but they
lack sufficient artillery for the purpose. A Russian scouting party was
blown up by a mine near the fort and
several of its members killed. The
commanders of the Chinese forts at
Chee Foo arc greatly disturbed by reports that the Hermans purpose taking Hie forts and they are threatening
to defend them to the end. The
heavily manned Krupp defending the
settlement will be destroyed if a light
occurs. The United Slates battleship
Oregon arrived al I loo Sung today.
She steamed at good speed throughout
the trip.

which the sturdier patriotism of Sir
Charles Tupper does not pretend to
understand, and it was because of
them he said Sir Wilfrid Laurier was
too English for him. And if the Liberal papers were honest they would
cither leave the quotation alone, or
pulblsh it with the full context.
All Check* Bhould he mailo payable to tho
order of NKLSON l'l'lll.IsuiNll COMPANY,
LIMITED.
FOR   CAMPAIGN   USE.
"As   for   Sir Wilfrid   Laurier,   you
can   say   that   he   is   too English for
me."    Sometimes this appears" with a
few words of the context;   sometimes
without introduction or   elaboration;
but in one form or another it lias been
or i.s being published   in every Liberal paper from   ocean   to ocean.    It   is
recognised as an alleged excerpt   from
an interview given to a newspaper reporter by Sir Charles   Tupper   shortly
after bis arrival   from   England,   and
is intended to   convey   the impression
that our French-Canadian Premier  is
admittedly more loyal, more imperialistic, than   the   Conservative   leader.
It is considered necessary to have this
Impression    widely    circulated,    for
since the Premier's ready  submission
to Mr.  Tarte   in regard to   that   lirst
contingent   his   absolute   devotion   to
the Imperial connection has lieen subjected   to   more   or   less  suspicion in
more quarters than   one.   It will  be
remembered that  Mr.  Tarte did  not
approve   of   the    contingent.    ''What
have we to do with   the   things of Africa'.''' be demanded to know.   'What
interests  have   wc in the   Transvaal'.'
Why should we   take tbe   money   and
the blood of our people to  spend them
in such fur-away regions?''    Sir Wilfrid's hesitation to consent to the contingent,    and   his   doubts   whether it
would lie lawful to send  troops out of
tbe     country, coming on tbe   top   of
Mr. Tartc's open  opposition, caused a
feeling of deep uneasiness throughout
the country: it   did   more than this���
it caused   many   to   inquire   Whether
Canada after all was a British possession or an appendage of   Mr.    Tartc's
"dear   9ranee."    And   so   it   has become necessary,  in view   especially of
the approaching   elections, to   have it
appear that the Premier's imperialism
is beyond question.
No one lias, or can have, any doubt
of Sir Charles Tupper's loyalty, lie
was an enthusiastic Imperialist in the
days when imperialism was not as
mnch the fashion as It became in the
year of the Queen's jubilee. If a man
so devoted to the Empire can say that
Sir Wilfrid Laurier is too liritish for
him, our Premier's Imperialism must
be boundless indeed. Hut Sir Charles
has not snid this. The quotation is
an Impudent cheat, and most of the
newspapers publishing it know it to
be a cheat. Sir Charles was discussing, not loyalty or Imperialism in the
abstract, but the questions of imperial preferential trade and Imperial
federation. When Sir Wilfrid was
willing to give something for nothing, as he did in tlie tariff preferential, and to merge the Dominion into
an Imperial Legislative union, where
our representation would lie too insignificant lo have tlie least Influence, he
Said the Premier was too English for
him, and patriotic Canadians will applaud him for thc sentiment. Canadians want tlieir own Parliament and
tlieir own Government, They do not
want them swallowed up in a bigger
Parliament and Qovernment at Westminster, even although  il should gain
them  tlic distinction  of having Sir
Wilfrid Laurier made un Imperial
Minister. Nor do they quite understand why Canada should give a tariff
preferential so liberal us to put some
of our own manufactures in peril.
when Ihe Hritish (Iovernment refuses
to consider nny sorl of_ uu equivalent,
These    arc   excesses of   Imperialism
* The decision of the committee appointed to arrange for the entt'i tain-
ment of the vice-rcgul parly to huve
an Illumination on tlie lake as Their
Excellencies leave Nelson tomorrow
night was a wise one. It is hoped
that the owners of boats   will   second
the efforts of tin uimlttee  and have
a display equalling thut of the last
Dominion Day water carnival. The
Lake is Nelson's greatest attraction
and anything calculated to draw the
attention of visitors to it is the right
hind of advertising. Now that the
banquet is out of the way no pains
should be spared to make the illumination a great success. If the residences are also Illuminated when
Their Excellencies depart they will
carry away witli them a picture of
Nelson that they will not soon forget.
It behooves all citizens to join in
making tiie reception a truly loyal
and hearty one.

bent Snn I .'ancisco at thoir own gamo
] j six Btralghl goals. Thai evening
Sim Francisco talked about a return
match, ���'I"'1 Todd Sloan, tho famous
jockey, wlio was then riding In California, w:is the principal spokesman.
Me hnd n roll of money thai looked as

Baldwin Hotol bar. Mr, MaoNaugh-
Ion wns in bed upstairs. One of the
liritisli Columbia boys- tbey were nil
nearly broke suddenly recollected
that Archie hnd some money, doing
up, he knocked nl the door and said,
"I'omo down here quick and bring all
the mono) you've got. If you haven't
gol any money, bring your watch���
there's 11 smooth-faced kid making ua
all look cheap." When Archie got
down stairs Sloan was making one
grand bluff. A match was immediately offered, nnd the jockey quit,
Then liritish Columbia offered to piny
live inon against seven, nnd still Sloan
took wnter. The next day the San
Francisco papers were lull of the
nffnlr nnil Sloan was so chagrined that

PHOTln.HA-.IS  ON TIIK SKIN.
Hue May Carry n Pleture of a   Friend
Upon His Flesh Perpetually,
A scientific discovery i.s bound to he
picturesque and interesting, and must
attracl universal attention. A Roumanian chemist named Dinkeresco
discovered 11 means of combining the
substances which arc used in sensitizing paper for photographic purposes
so thai they enn be applied to the hu-
lunu cuticle without injuring it. and
tlie skin thus be made a sensitive
plate for tlic printing of photography,
Dinkersco'a remarkable discovery is a
combination of photography and
the otchlng process, and that to some
cMeiii the Image is "bitten" Into the
cuticle.
At nny inte. the impression is permanent, the image is clear and distinct, mid the skin is not made a negative, but really a sort of sensitized
paper. Thc impression does not weir
away with the ohango of the tissues
nnd tho renewal of the surface of the
skin because the substances or changes which have boon produced by tbe
process of photography are renewed
nccftrding to the modifications produced by the "biting" process, just
ns those uf a tattooed outline arc.
And whatever the mechanical means
employed, the results are remarkable.
"J this means every human beint' becomes a sort of photograph album.

'lie term.    Let bim   do so   and   every
' dltlon  he  applies will be met  by
Producing a great mine whieh, at one
tllno, possessed tbe alleged attributes,
's a mine a "wildcat" because the
stock in the company owning it is
Selling nt a nominal figure? If so,
then the Granite Mountain was a
"wildcat" for its stock was sold for
lesk than ten cents a share, yet it paid
over 118,000,000 In dividends, and is
still being profitably operated. Iron
Mountain was sold as low as eight
cents and has paid over half a million iu dividends. These mines were
once only prospects with ten-foot
boles, and so was every other great
mine, T|���. fact is a "wild-cat" is

yet it may, ns a prospect, havo bad

HOW TO IIANDLK A GUN,
In picking up your gun from lying
flat, standing against anything, from
u companion or a boat,, do not take
hold of the muzzle and draw it, toward
you ; take bold of it by the forestoek
and barrel if you are only using one
hiind; if two in tlic regular way you
grasp It when you (r() to shoot, ln
carrying your gun do not keep thc
muzzle directly behind you (throw the
butt to the right or left, whichever
shoulder you arc carryinef it on, This
will bring the muzzle toward the opposite shoulder, thus rendering it
easy to carry, as It will be resting on
your neck and shoulder [instead of
OH the small part of your shoulder,
and witli the muzzle upward will also
lighten it a little. I think there are
more men shot with their own guns
by taking them from a boat than in
any other wny. When you run your
bout or canoe to the bank your gun is
likely to be In tbe bow, which, I
think, is the best place for it.   Tnke
hold of it by the forestoek nnd step
out. Cut it In a safe place where you
are sure if will not fall down. Then
draw up your boat or do anything else
you have to do. but do not let your
gun stay in the boat until you have
shouldered yonr pack and then catch
bold of tho muzzle, drag it   over   the
gunwale, 1 li the hammers, and have
it explode. It, is likely to blow out
your brains.���Forest and Stream.
A Tempting Table
TIIK SHEPHERDS.
A great character among the shepherds of Dorset was one "Nat" Scale.
A solitary shepherd upon the downs
of Dorset, through his long life of
fourscore years and ten he was brimful
of native wit. Religious topics were
not to his mind. The curate of Ford-
ington, where tlle old shepherd spent
the last few years of his life, tried on
many occasions to get "-��'at" to talk
on religious subjects, but he always
turned the conversation. At last, one
day the curate got him so far as to
speak to him of Christ, when tbe old
man, turning upon him, said: "Well,
He were the tiood Shepherd, weren't
lie'."' The curate assenting, the old
shepherd added, with strong emphasis: "Well, I tell'ee what 1 believe.
I don't believe as one Shepherd will
ever round   upon another   shepherd."
savoring something of the philosopy
of Omar,  the   tentmaker,   "lie's a
good fellow, and 'twill all be well."
So ended this portion of tlieir conversation, and not another word would
the old shepherd say upon the subject.

A New Westminster   Man  Tal
crosse to a Miner Man.
Mr.   Godfrey   W,   Booth,    of  New
Westminster, who is in Nelson at the
present time, hns heen more than
ordinarily Interested in  the doings of
the Westminster lacrosse team in the
East. Mr. Booth is a member of the
executive committee of the cluh and
was one of those interested in
Bending Ihe team in search of the
glory which awaited it in the Eastern  Provinces.
I am more than pleased with the
result of Iheir trip." said Mr. Booth
to a Miner inan.tliis morning, "They
have done even bettor than we expected. When Ihey were preparing to
leave wc all discussed tlie probable results of t he t ri n. Wo figured that we
might be defeated by the Capitals, the
Shamrocks and the Torontos, but
were sure of the other gameB. We
knew we bad a good team and believed it to be equally as good as any
in the East but we were not so confident as wo know now wc had a right
to be. What pleases ns most is that
our team is purely a home team.
Every player is a New Westminster
man in ovory sense of the word. Some
were born there and all are holding
good positions there. There is not
one on the team who plays lacrosse for
a living, It is an amateur aggregation if ever there was one and every
man knows the game of laeros.se from
A to Z. The people of Westminster
arc proud of the hoys, and I believe,
too. that pride in them is not contin
ed to us alone but can he found every
where in the Province where there an
those who love amateur  sport."
Mr. Booth says that the Wcstmin
ster team will not play al Winnipeg
on its way home but will wait and
meet the Prairie City team when tin
latter visits Westminster during tin
Fair.
