«__&___-ffl__-_--___ THE SILVERTONIAN, SILVERTON, B. C
In a Disastrous Storm-Ponee Suffered
Most-Large Nuiul.er or Lives Lost—
Business Is Practically Bulned—Aid Is
Neede--Au Appeal for Help.
I-once, Puerto Kiev, Aug. 14.—The terrific wind whicli accompanied the recent
storm destroyed the crops und demolished
a number of bouses on tlie higher ground,
while tlie Hoods destroyed bridges and
houses und caused a {-rent loss of human
life. A large number of cuttle were killed.
The storm was most severe in the central
part of the island and along the southern
const. Many hundreds nf bodies have been
buried in thc city of Ponce, and it is
estimated that 2000 persons wens drowned
in the l'onee district. The number of
people of the lower classes lost is not
known, but it is certain that there were
few fatalities among the persons of Ull)
better class and none among the Americans, The work of clearing away thc
debris progresses slowly. During the progress of the storm the municipal hospital
waa wrecked, and its patients were removed to the military hospital.
Saturday Bucoaya, Adjuntas end llu-
inacoa were devastated, and iu some in
stances entire villages were swept out of
existence. One hundred persons are reported to have been killed on a coffee plantation. Everybody is ruined, pestilence
threutens und many months' work is needed, and a newspaper appeal has been made
for relief. The calamity, with the com-
lneiciul depression, has produced a terrible
condition of affairs. A cavalry patrol has
been established.
Whole Purl Wns Inundated.
Sun J nun, Puerto Rico, Aug. 14.—The
port of Arecibo was destroyed during the
late storm, the place being inundated by-
water from the ocean und river. Two hundred bodies ure in the morgue there, and
hundreds of persons ure missing. A nnm
ber of citizens who lived on plantations in
the suburbs were drowned. The coni-
munding officer of the district has ordere 1
thut the bodies of the victims of the disaster shall be buried where they aie found.
"San Juun hits been applied to for supplies.
According to the latest reports from
Yubucou, HU bodies were buried there one
day last week, while the remains of 200
victims have not been recovered. The
church i- tlie only building left standing.
It is reported a number of American
soldiers were killed at Mayagucz.
Promlses of Relief.
Washington, Aug. 14.—Respon es to the
appeal of Secretary Knot for aid to the
suffering and destitute in Puerto Rico are
coming in from the mayors of different
cities in a most gratifying mauuer.
Promises of money, food and clothing
are made und it is said the work of relief
will bc commenced at once und pushed
with all vigor.
Protect   Oui   Food.
The doctors Inform us that alum Is
a poison, and that alum baking powders should be avoided, because they
make the food unwholesome. Prominent hygienists, who have given the
matter most study, regard these powders as an evil that should be suppressed by state action. In Minnesota
and Wisconsin alum powders are not
permitted to be sold unless tbey are
branded to warn consumers of their
true character, while ln tbe District of
Columbia the authorities have under
the direction ot congress adopted regulations to prohibit the use of alum in
bread altogether.
Are not the people of other states,
as well as those of Minnesota and Wisconsin, entitled to warnings of a danger which is apparently menacing them
at close hand, and ls not the whole
country entitled to absolute protection,
as the people of the District of Columbia are protected, by legislation which
is entirely prohibitive?
Until we can have protection ln the
form of a statute, how can our state
boards of health, slate analysts or food
commissions better serve the public
than by publishing in the newspapers
from time to time the names of the
baking powders which they find to be
made from alum?
Meantime, it will aid the housewife
In designating the alum powders to remember that all powders sold at twenty-five cents or less per pound are of
this dangerous class. Pure cream of
tartar powders are usually sold at from
forty-five to fifty cents a pound.

Silverton   at  tho preaent time is
acknowledged   to      be   tho   second
camp in tho Slooan, and it is   no idle
boast whon we say   that   in  a   short
time—a   very short   time—Silverton
will lie the chief shipping point and
business center of  thc Slocan.    Her
list of shipping mines is only surpassed
by that of Sandon ., and with tho  big I
raincial   country,   tributary   to   her, j   ^ lg*^t y*otori, despatched seem
behind her, it is reasonable to  perdict | ^ ^^ ^ opil)ion that th„  Sen .
that   Silverton    will   not  long  play
It is stated that the II. A. 0 , a big
foreign mining corporation, has decided
to fight the Western Federation of
Miners, known as tho Miners! Union.
It is evident Ita, the management ot
the B. A. 0, has little regard for the
pockets of its stockholders or is ignorant
of the A B 0 ot mining in America,
[f instead of looking for a fight, in
which it is bound to be worsted, it
would go ahead with its mining operations and let the Union alone, its
career of usefulness, both to ths
Province and its stockholders, would
he enlarged and prolonged,

The growth of Silverton a£ a mining

Minos. As a result of thc last year's
work over §300,000. worth of high
grade argentiferous lead ore has been j
shipped from the wharf at this place '
and the whistles of no less than three
big concentrating plants will he heard
in bilverton before the end of the
present year. The townsite of Silver-
ton, being owned by private parties
has not, like her sister towns, received
any assistance from the government
and next to nothing from tho owners
of the townsite, but every call made
upon her citizens for any public improvements has been promptly met
and labor and money cheerfully given.
With the result that to-day Silver-
toiiians can honestly boast of the finest
street, healthiest and prettiest town in
the whole Kootenays. Thc prospects
for Silverton's future, at the present
time, are very bright, with many extensive improvements assured and
several big mining deals about to be
consummated. Thc only cloud upon
the horizon, ar.d that will soon pass,
is the present strike, but we hope a
spirit of conciliation will soon be
shown and the strained relations
between mine owners and miners
soon terminate and work be resumed.
Owing: to a reduction in miners' wages
caused by the enforcement of the eiiiht
hour law, the miners are all idle and tbe
mines have  shut down.   Therefore all
working-ten are hereby warned to keep
away from   the Slocan   and   Kootenny
country, British Columbia, until present
troubles are  amicably  settled   between
mine owners and miners.

The efforts made by the Mine
Owner's Association to import "scab"
labor from tbe east has so far proved
a dismal failure, and they bave
become discouraged and about to give
up that idea. Their efforts are now
being turned towards defeating Alex
Henderson, who runs as a government
member in the bye-election at New
Westmii inter, to be held on tb<) 24th,
inst., with the idea of overthrowing
the present government and haying
the eigl.t hour law repealed. The
indication*- are that they will here also
bo met by a severe rebuke at the
hands of the people who are becoming
rather weary of thesr* little men who
are trying to fill big men's shoes.
Tho annual cry fcr an appropriation
from the government to again fax up
tho New Denver-Three Forks wagon
road, is again heard. This piece of
road is of no use to anyone, never was
used anil never would bo
