The August payroll of
the St. Eiigehe Consolidated' Mining Co. was
the largest sum yet
paid out "by that company to its employ
a single month. The
amount was '$27,323,
distributed amongst
266 men./ With the
various smaller pay-
roils about town, it is
safe to" estimate that
during the month of
August at least $30,000
was paid out.

List of Dead Run Into
Thousands. .
BURYIrTGr    THE - DEAD
Tlio   Safety   of tho   TAvlng  Is   tho Paramount  Question, which  I? a
Perplexing One.
Galveston, Sept. 12.—-All attempts
at'burying the dead have been utterly
abandoned, and bodies aro now being
disposed of in thc swiftest manner possible. Scores of them were buried today aud hundreds were taken but' to
sea and thro wen over board. Tli'e
safety of tho living is the paramount
question, and nothing that will 'tend
to prevent the "outbreak of pestilence
is being neglected. This morning it
was found that large .numbers of the
bodies which had been previously
thrown into the bay washed back
upon the shore, and the situation was
thus rendered worse than before they-
were first taken into barges and thrown
imlo the water.
It will lievercbe known how many
have lost their lives in this awful
catastrophe, Mayor Jones thinks the
dead will amount to several thousand,
and ptliers whose opportunities for
judging afe less' than those Of the
mayor place is as high as 10,000. Ite;
hef committees from the interior of
the state have .commenced to arrive,
and as usual, they are too large in
numbers'and lo a ceitain extent aro in
the way of the people of. Galveston
and an iupedimeul to the" prompt relief which they"~tiieln5e^v~e^^a"fir-~-''oO
desirous'cf offering. Some of tbe relief expeditious have 'had Committees
large enough to consume 10 per cent
of the provisions which they  brought.
Two carloads of provisions and' ice
arrived this morning from Beaumont.
The great trouble „rio',v seems that
those in gieatest need aro the last to
receive''aid. Many of them are so
badly maimed and wounded that they
are unable "to apply to their relief
committees, and tha committes are so
overwhelmed b'y, direst applications
that they hare been unable to cehd
out messengers.
Thc wounded everywhere are still
needing the attention of physicians,
audj despite every effort,- it is feared
that a number will die, because of the
impossibility to afford them tho aid
necessary to save their lives.    -

A good story comes from Vancouver,
,where the Japs are becoming British
pubjects by wholesale. Three years'
residence is required, and as that is
the only subject; of inquiry, every Jap
is able tp answer, although it may exhaust his English vocabulary. A
stranger at the raily/ay station aaked
an intelligent looking Jap how long it
would be till tho train , would leaye,
and was surprised and annoyed at the
prompt reply: .'-'Three years." The
Jap has learned his naturalization
lesson.
THE BriNERAL TAX.
The boards pf trade in the Kootenays
are filing   emphatic   protests   against
the doubling of the Lax ono the output
pf the mines, says the Rossland Miner.
It is held that the metalliferous mines
are aheadv -,contributing   more   than
fdieir fair share to thc provincial  treasury.,  The roal   estate   tax,   personal
property tax, provincial' revenue   and
all the other forrrieo of general taxation
■•    are borne by the miners   in   common
with the other taxpeyers of the   province,  while    tho   different   forms   of
ruining-taxation falls  upon  them  exclusively.   Tho mining-industry is just
recovering from a long  period   of   depression, brought on by tho   war   and
other causes, and the prosent time is
most inopportune for doubling tho tax
on the outputs of the  mines. "Outside
of this consideration, in our judgment,
the provincial authorities are, making
a serious mistake in   overtaxing   mining. It is an industry which -should be
fostered and so .built up, and the province would show wisdom if it depended
more upon tlie incidental  advantages
which would accrue to   the   commonwealth and less on a direct tax.   It is
an admitted''fact,-that one of the greatest needs of   the. province , is   money
from abroad with   which   to   develop
the wonderful wealth   in . the   virgin
mineral ground.   The   more   royalty
exacted from the miners and the larger the taxes   and   restrictions   placed
upoxi them the  less   the   chance   of.
capital coming in.    Other things being
equal tlie   mining   investor -will   go
where there is no tax to   bo   paid- on
the mineral which   he   extract,;   from
the earth. \ Tbe outcome of iegiYUion
0f tlie character proposed is certain   to

How 1\ Toj-s ft Scottish Army Offloes^e
Clothing to Frasmcnt",
A snoflt remarkable exanipls oi the
terrible' effects of a lightning stroke
is described in tho London Graphic,
Maj; Jameson, formerly of ihe Scottish Rifles, accompanied by his father
and mother, -went into &'meadow to
pick'mushrooms,' Maj.-Jamison was
some ^distance iii irons',- and there was
a single clap" oi thunder 'and Hash'of
lightning, which irightened Mrs. Jameson, and ,she and her husband went into
a wood and returned ito the house, expecting -that Maj. Jameson would follow. ■ '"■';•     i   ; '_ '
About half an hour later Maj. Jameson was'found by a game-keeper, lying on his face in the flald quite dead.-
Around him, in a radius of several yards,
were his clothes and< boots, which'had
been torn and scattered about in an
extraordinary manner.   'The'lightning
appeared to have struck Maj.   Jameson on thef right side of the head, tearing the cap He was wearing to pieces,
and  burning - hia hair oS.   '   El then
"passed Inside his collar, down the froni
of his body and both legs, into his boots,
which  were torn to atoms, and' then
.passed Into the ground, tearing a hole
about 18 "inches in cireumfereri.ee and
three inches deep,
The deceased man's collar was torn
into,100 pieces, none larger than a sixpence, xbe front oi his jacket was rent
Lniq ribbons, and the jacket and under-
vest literally torn to shrede, and ihe
knickerbockers he %vas wearing jvere
stripped oft and scattered on the
ground. Maj. Jameson's stockings and'

and on the boots the lightning had a remarkable effect.

, In the life of a modern business community a man must beware of too much
wisdom, says the Choutauquan, The
specialist'is the man who succeeds and
having once set his hand to an occupation one dare never leave it under penalty of failure in what he has chosen as
his life work, Iu the west all this was
different, Yereitility was a necessity,
The successful man must know how to
do many things. The gleanings of any
one field- of activity were too small to
afford a living oi themselves, This fact
was accepted hy the citizens of the
country, sometimes with a grim humor
which marked the we6t.   ,
A young lawyer in- a western town
had out a sign   which   read;     f'John
Jones, attorney-at-law. Real estate and
insurance. Collections promptly attended to at all hours of the dnjc or night.
Good Ohio cider for sale- at five cents a

commodities  for which  there was a
very small demand.   One of the prominent citizens  of such a town was a
gambler, a farmer, a. fighter   and , a
6chool teacher all in one.   There seemed
to the minds,of the inhabitants of the
country  nothing- incongruous in this
mixing  up of occupations,    it   being
taken for granted that, a man- would
endeavor to make a living in the'ways
for which he seemed best.fitted.

STORIES ABOUT OWLS.
The    Bird*    Cun    Mukc    Themselves
Very UnpleUNiuit C'omiianitiTjK.
They say all sons of moan thing?,
about owls. If a man liasif t'much respect for your gray matter or intelligence ',in general. lie will say you are
as stupid-as an owl. Ou the other
hand, If .you are brilliant and he likes
you it would be just like him to say
you were as wise as an owl. And there
you are. To come right down to the
subject, an owl Is not by any manner
of means tbe stupid bird many people
believe,blin to be.
Mr. John A. Lord, a taxidermist, says
the Portland (Me.) Express, relates a
story rabout' how he had once gone out
to look at some traps he bad set for
rabbits. When he reached his traps,
he found that a rabbit had been caught,
but something had carried It off and
left no.trace of its identity behind it.
That night Mr. Lord took two or three
traps and baited them about where thc
game had been stolen the night before.
A rabbit soon got ensnared, and Mr.
Lord proceeded to watch it from a
nearby 'cdVer. For a long time everything was quiet, except for the frightened tugs and jumps the-imprisoned
rabbit made to get free. Suddenly
there was a whir of wings, and. like a
Hash of lightning, a great horned owd
pounced out of the gloom down on to
the struggling victim. Etc killed tbe
rabbit Instantly and began to cat it.
In his movements be got one foot Into another trap and found that bo In
turn was a prisoner, lie thrashed
around for some .time, when Mr. Lord,
and a friend went'to his release. The
friend did not know the .peculiarities
of the great horned owl so'well as Mr.
Lord did or he never would have attempted to lift the bird by his'well
foot The owl wasn't feeling particularly amiable and made one of its famous passes at tbe;man, fastening its
powerful claws In the fleshy part of
his right linnd.    ' ^
..There was n verycanijBatcd Bcene for
a few moments, and jibout" all that
could be seen was "a bunch of man and
owl rolling about tho ground. When
thc,combatants were brought to their
feet again by Mr. Lord, the owl refused
to break clean, and his claws remained
firmly Imbedded in' the flesh: The owl
had to be killed and the tendons in thc
leg cut before the cruel claws could be
opened and withdrawn from the man's
hand, tie learned something about,
owls, however.
Mr. Lord relates bow bo once saw
fully , 50 crows after a great horned
owl. They made it so hot for him that
he dropped to tbe ground, where they
began to dart about biro. The owl
merely bunched himself up Into a defensive position and let them,play their
game. He kept-so still that they.be-'
came bolder,,and finally oiio came near.
Like a flash that '"Irresistible, right"
shot out-and fastened on Mr.. Crow.
There was one doleful squawk; and it
was all over. The owl then deliberately pulled the dead crow apart and ata.
it before the screeching flock that was
watching'him. It is safe to say that
tliey did not como hear enough to bother him after that.
■ Right here It might be well to state
,a littlcrsometblug.about tbo manner in
Which an owl strikes lta prey. If you
ever noticed when owls pounce down
on their victims, they usually-stretch
their legs out in front of them. They
strike lu with tholr sharp claws, throwing their bodies forward and" literally
Bitting down on the unfortunate object
upon wbcb they have fastened. This
glvos them a leverage and locks the
sharp claws together in tho flesh of the
victim so firmly that It ia Impossible
for them to let go again until they
have straightened out their legs. They
can generally put their claws through
any flesh thoy pouuee upon. -

"Most    Englishmen    are   considered
pretty   fair   horsemen,    but   when   it
comes to riding a buckiug broncho some
of them arc uot in or on It for long,"
said tho owner of a large cattle ranch
in   Wyoming  to  the 'writer  the  other
day.    "For instance, n rich young Englishman recently came out to my part
of the country in ijuest ,of- some good
investment.    lie was at my ranch as a
guest for a  few days, and  one after
noon  as  the  cowboys  were  about   to
round  up a bunch of cow  ponies the
young man said that he would enjoy a
good  ride in the saddle.    He said  he
was used to riding only thoroughbreds,
and' he didn't  think   we  had  a  horse
good enough for him.    The boys con
vinc-ed him  that  thoy had one of the
finest horses on the plains, and  if he
knew how to ride he was welcome to
the   animal.     lie   was  apparently   in
suited when questioned about his ability to ride and answered that lie could
ride  any  kind  of a   horso.     A  sleepy
looking     broncho     was   , accordingly
brought out  from the corral and sad
died.    Though the beast appeared hull'
dead, he was the worst bucker In the
herd.
" "E's lifeless,' said the forelguei
when the pony was brought to him
The boys said the nag would wake up
after the'first mile, and milord got into
the saddle. The first buck Jump placed
him on'the horse's neck, and after'the
second he was in the atmosphere.' He
turned a double somersault nnd landed .on the, sharp end of a cactus plant
When he picked himself' tip. one of the
boys asked what ho thought of the
thoroughbred now. The question made
the Englishman turn pale.
" ' 'K's   a .good   'oss.'   lie   answered,
'hut   he, lopes   too   bloomln   Mgh."'

[Copyright, JUOO, by C. IJ. Lewis.]
As tbe Goat and the,Kid were viewing
the surrounding landscape from the root
of a shed one day they beheld a Woli
emerge from the forest «nd hobble along
on three legs.
"See, mother, but the Wolf can hardl>
walk," said the Kid. "If I was out there
now, 1 could,outrun him."
"The Wolf appears to be lame," replied the mother, "but,a Wolf is a Wolf,
nnd vou want to keep clear of him."
Very shortly the Wolf fell down, aud
rolled" over as if in great pain, and th(
Kid remarked:
' "Jf I was out there now, I 'wouldn't
even have to run, as the Wolf is almost
dead:" ■' - v     ,
"Yes. he .seems to he bavins,' a hard
time of it,", answered the mother, "but
don't you get too fresh. A Wolf may be
lame or sick, but he's no spring calf."

A Profitable DepoMlt.
I remember the case of an old lady at
E. who usually had from £13,000 to
£15.000 standiug to her credit, and.
needless to, say, as she did not' ask for
any interest thereupon, none was allowed her. The manager whenever
she entered the'office was always most
particular to step forward and inquire
most tenderly concerning the state of
her health, and if she replied that she
was suffering from a slight cold the
expression upon the man's face grew
quite sad. No wonder, when he remembered that even a slight cold might
carry off an old lady who was handing
his company at least £300 a year.-

A well known M. V. tells an amusing
story of an old a>.nt of his. Being on
onp" occasion . very nervous, she told
her physician she thought Rath would
do her good.'
"It's very odd," said Dr. ,W., "but
that's the very thing that, I was going
to recommend to you. I will write the
particulars or your case to a very clever man .there, in whose hands you will
be well taken care of."
The ladv, furnished with tbe letter,
set off. On arriving at Bath, feeling, as
usual, very nervous, she said to a confidant:
"Long as Dr. Walter has attended
me he has never explained to me what
ails me. I have a great mind to open
his letter and see what he has stated
of my case to. the Bath physician."

To a citizen of British Columbia no
argument is required   lo   prove   that
,mion   is   strength.     But   union     is
stienglh. only when  it  is   systematic
and   through.    The   trades   union   of
today is too exclusive, and is   surrounded by too many   restrictions    tc   be-
pome general.    And yet if labor is ever
to gain   its   just   rights,   it   must   be
united.    Strikes are bad, whether successful or not;  strikes tend  to create
ill feeling between   the employer  and
the employed. j

has very little tc expect from thc great
political parties.    The so called leaders
are capitalists themselves and   neaily
all legislatio'n-is in their interest.    Occasionally so,me measure   cf  rslief   is
' passed by tbe legislatures, but is given
/or the same reason a burglar  gives   a
watch dog a   bone.    The   British   Col-
timbia  people   are   neither   blind   or
joolish ; they sco hovr arrogant capital
is.apt to become, especially when combined with political "power.    Yes,   the
people are in the galleries.,   but   their
is no reason why thoy  should  remaiu
there.   Let them try   their   hand   at
nominating; as well as voting, and then
wo should see the laborer  assume  his
true place in nation of  laborers.    Call
it by 'what name we will, laho/  party
or peoples party, or  nationalist party,
the ciyins* need of the hour is, a  new
party which will gurantee to  the  producer the fruits of   his   labor.   From
time to time, ior seeing^ patriotic  men
utter notes of   earning,  only   to   be
feared arid laughed at by the very m6n
individuals they are   trying   to   serve.
Meanwhile truafend syndicate grow
apace regardless alike^of law or public
opinion, knowing   that   whether   the
government be''grit"  or conservative
it will certainly be capitalistic.   The
British Columbia workingmen have   a
double edge weapon   with   which   he
can fight, viz.  union and   the   ballot.
Thus armed,   and   properly   officered
the great army of labor should   be   invincible.   -The combinations of oapital
must be methy aimilar combinations of
labor.    Let the various  unions   come
into   one   great   federation.     Capital
does not  monopolize the   brains   and
intelligence   of   the   country.    There
are hundreds oi men  working  in  our
mines and at the   bench,   capable   of
governing provinces or  making laws,
aud these are the men who will  come
to the front, to   lead   and   guide   you
when thc time   comes.    If   the   wage
earners would only do a little serious
thinking, they would   see   that   they
have a remedy  in   their   own   hands,
Tlie government is of their own   making, for thc majority of vote?; cast at an
election are cast by working men,  and
and yet they allow  themselves   to   be
played one against the other,   hy   unscrupulous politicians, who care  nothing for them except   what   they   can
gain by thoir votes.

"H'm," said the^ major, ^'how io it
.Master Charley comes in for all the'
luck' in'this way?"
"I don't know, sir," I answered, dolefully. !-'Ke goes about more and makes
himself more liked, I thinks while JY-r'*
I hesitated. „
"Whileiyou stick at home and work,
Is that it?" he a-sked,
"Well," I- returv.ed, "I *ry my best.
You see, I have nothing else to rely on—
or hope for—like Charley, It's his luck
—find rninei"
"However," said the major, "I have
been told you get your pictures hung,
and sell them, which is more than he
does. . Is that luck, too?"
To this I made no reply.' I could not
see its relevancy.
"Now, look here, Jack Wiburn," the
major went on, "I knew you'were not
Charley Wiburn." (I looked up in'surprise.) "Mally told me"; and I havo made
certain inquiries of ray own, and I have
something to tell you, The late Alexander Stephen Wiburn was a very old
and intimate friend of mine, and had
long ago set his heart upon Milly's marrying- Charley" (here I* jumped up es-
eitediy, but he waved his hand to me, as
a, sign to be quiet), "But he was determined' that, if it came about at all,
it should be spontaneous, and not
through any compulsion or unworthy
motive. But in that-.will you heard

luck"  became a    general    catchword
among us—a synonym for all that wns
lucky and fortunate.
One morning at breakfast—we were
artists and shared the same rooms and
fltudio—lie recehed a black-edged letter, which, upon opening and reading,
he cast down with a discontented look."
"Another funeral to go to." he grumbled, "and here are my pictures unfinished and next week is bending-indas'T'
"Who ia it new?*" I asked, "Another

To cut the matter .short, I had to
consent—as I generally did where
Charley was concerned.    ^
I took Uic lawyer's letter, aa a sort
of credential, and set oat, grumbling a
good deal'at what I considered Charley's

dew at all, small or large 1
However, as I have said, I set out for
the place—it »,vas Devonshire—and in
dueicouide I aaTived at the littlo town,
'and put. up at a hotel for the night.'
The funeral was fixed for the following'
day, and' on inquiry I learned that the
house I had to go to was only a short
distance away.
The next day, therefore, sow me
among the assembled guests. I found'
out. Mr. Parchly and silently showed
him hia own letter, "Ah," said he,
"you are Mr. Wiburcs. Very good.
Glad to gee you." I did not r^ply, so
he concluded that I was Charley Wiburn, withouv having- ssid anything
one way or the other-.
But, when, after the funeral, the will
came to be read, I found Charles waa
down for £5,000.   That made methink
it harder lines than ever that I should
have had to come down in his place.
The weather was atrociously cold;  the
March  winds  strong  and  blustering,
with showers of sleet and snow, and I
felt cold and miserable.   At the end
of the reading of thc will I was making my way out, to gut back to the hotel,
when some one said:    "Mr. Wilburn,
I believe?"   I looked around and saw
a  fctiff,  military-looking  old  boy re-
i garding me with a smile through hia
spectacles.    "Charley," said he, "don't
j-ou remember me?"   I thought to myself:    "Oh, now I'm in for it.   Here's
a nice mess—all through trying to-aervG
Charley,    Just my  bad luck."    This
feeling did not grow less when ho paid:
"Milly wants  to speak to you.    Sho
hae been looking at you. and says she
can hardly recognize yon for her old
playfellow."   ("No wonder," I thought,
"It would be strange if she did.")-
She came up and fihook hands, and
the moment I looked at her I simply fell j between ,them to begin, housekeeping,

I  found  the majors house a neat,

his daughter (bVwife being dead), a'
housekeeper and one servant.   Though
everything waa comfortable, there was
that indescribable air  that gave one
the impression that they were not tcjb
