Secretary Ernil Muri
of the brewery
workmen is in Los
Angeles looking over the field. lie will
stay in the southern city a week or so
and then journey on to Cincinnati, the
headquarters of the International or
g&nizatlpn. The latest reports are that
the Los Angeles brewery workers are
still all standing firm for their de
ir.nnds and have not lost a man. Union
beer is beginning 1 to reach I>os Angeles
in carload lots and Muri believes the
right will shortly be won.
The union planlos m-'l just estab
lished Id Pan XSateo is progressing
nicely. Orders are pouring into the
new concern, it Is said, and it has no
trouble in getting all the lumber neces
sary. So' great is the success of this
mill that those, in a position to know
*cy that another union mill will shortly
be started in Palo Altc. Capital is
r*?riy to put a union plant in that
town and it will probably be begun
before the week is out.
The bay and river steamboatmen's
union met Sunday night and decided
not to recede from its determination to
demand 50 cents per hour for Sunday
work. The owners will pay this under
protest. They will appeal to the labor
council and the sailors' union of the
l'acifio. The only point In dispute is
the extra pay for Sunday work. The
owners are willing to allow the old
wage of 51.50 extra for Sunday work,
but to this the men strenuously object.
Pending the appeal the new scale be
fcomea effective immediately.

Words That Are Out of Style
Many old. English words have fallen
from •• their high estate and are now
banned in the best society, at any rate
in Mayfair and Balgravla. Of* these
is the Saxon word "lady," whlcS^we
are told is derived from '"loaf giver."
In. 1910 we speak of a "woman," and
the word "lady"' has become almost a
term of reproach. A young Eingle
v.'oraan is a girl — pronounced "gyirl" —
as tho name ".young lady" is reserved
lor barmaids, shophands and telephone
Then the word "cress" jised to de
scribe the outer garment of our inoth
cts aud grandmothers, but "gowns' l
find "frocks" are worn by women of
the twentieth century. Also we may
talk of "relations," but not of rela
tives"; and the most. venerable rooster
must be called a "chicken." an - tbe
-.vord "fowl" has sunk almost to the
level of low language. — TheQuccn.

The White Man's Magic
"After all." says Major Brewer, -a
close student of Indian affairs, "no
medicine man ever lived who could
compote with the white man's magic.
I remember a striking Instance of this
when I was stationed among the White
Mountain Apaches in Arizona.
"The White Mountain Indians are to
my mind the finest of their race, intel
ligent and brave to an unusual degree.
One day a traveling showman came to
a nearby town with a biograph outfit,
the first of its kind seen in those parts.
The officers hired him to give an exhi
bition In tho post hall and invited the
Indians to sco the show.
"The biograph man had with him a
phonograph to make music to go with
tho pictures; and as he had a blank
record we thought It would beagood
idea to have the interpreter make a
record Sn Apache explaining how tho
biograph worked. The record, was made
and when the Indians led by their chief
had gathered in the darkened hall the
phonograph was placed on the stago
and the fun began.
"It was very quiet in the hall, and
when the machine began to speak in
Apache the chief, who sat beside me,
caught hold of my arm with a hand
which shook lik© a leaf— and that chief
was about the bravest man I ever knew.
He stood the strain for a moment, and
then calling to his badly frightened fol
lowers 'he led or rather for
he had a front seat, in. a -wild stampede
from the hall. - -
"Those Indians didn't, stop running
until they got wellinto the open on the
parade ground and it took- a/ lot of
coaxing and explaining to get them to
come back for the rest of- the show.
They enjoyed the moving'picturesand
apparently were not at all frightened by
them, but we saw to it that the phono
graph was. silent. .
"After the show was over, the chief,
•who had seen an ice making machine
a few weeks before and was too full
of the modern miracles to speak slowly
enough for me to understand him in his
own ' tongue, which -is very • difficult,
called the interpreter and said:
"'When white man make Ice out of
fire and talk out of tin it's time Indian
went away.' "
Major Burke of the wild west show,
beg pardon, exhibition, It's always "ex
hibition" when the major speaks, heard
the story of the phonograph and capped
it with another.
He said that a few years ago when
the Colonel Cody outfit was in Chicago
the magician Herrmann paid the In
dians a visit. The great master' of
sleight of hand did some simple tricks
which drew the attention of the Indians,
and then as they gathered about him
ho began to pick gold pieces from the
finery of a chief. The chief remained
passive until Herrmann \u25a0 pulled a live
bird from an Indian's pouch, then turn
ing to the others, he said gravely:
"White man big thief. Steel every
thing. Go sit on your trunks."
Every Indian ran for his belongings
and refused to raise the guard until
Herrmann had gone.— New York Sun.

COPPER FUMES RUN
;\u2666 THROUGH 3,000 BAGS
New Filter. Given First Trial by
KENNETT. July s.— The $230,000 bas
house for the Mammoth copper com
pany's'-smelter here, which was com
pleted yesterday, was today given its
first trial. . .'
.The baghouse is the only thing of Its
kind on this coast and was built to
control the noxious ~ smelter fumes
which have destroyed all vegetation
near, this town. .Over 3.000 bags, 'earn
30 feet long and IS inches in diameter,
are suspended in t!?e baghouse so that
the smelter fumes must filter through
them. • in
It is believed that the baghouse will
end the litigation between the copper
company and the Kennett farmers, who
have sued the smelter concern on ac
count of the damage inflicted on crops
by the fumes. " .
