Statistics just completed Indicate (hut 17,7'Mt men are either killed or injured annually In the peaceful pru suits vf this ureal workshop. It is simply what this district pays for the ceaseless rush and reckless abandon In the piling up of dollars. Human life is reckoned more cheaply than machinery, for a life snuffed out can be replaced without cost, but rna rhiny cannot. Of course, another element that en ters into tills tragic grind Is the care lessncss of employes. They take Krent risks, knowing; how dangerous is their work around flying wheels and le!ts, traveling at express train speed, or In close proximity to mov ing knives, trip hammers, molten steel, acids, and other leath dealing Hgeneies. Fatal Defects. Many mills and factories of the city are deficient In providing guard rails for pits, for' revolving cranks, -and for projecting rodB on shafts. There Is -also gross violation of the law in crowding workmen together until work cannot be performed with safety. 1 J til 1 1. 11 nthap olirnolo D pa 1arL-ln ir nn electric cranes, and travelers and they get Into a big mill or factory, chains, and rods are not inspected, I they are apt to get confused and be Sport THE UPPER riCTURE SHOWS MEN AT WORK IN A BESSEMER STEEL MILL, POURING LIQUID STEEL INTO THE INGOT MOLDS.

Gigantic fly wheels in the immense Iron and steel mills give way, with appalling loss of life and destruction .of property. Mill authorities are very much op posed to giving out Information about accidents. At the coroner"s office only 250 fatalities were reported from the mills during the year, while It is :known that many injuries, resulting .in death, never reach that office. Foreigners are advised by their friends not to work In the mills and .around furnaces. The alarming fre quency of accidents la due to furnace "hang, blowing off of furnace tops, nd escape of deadly fumes and flame, acts as a deterrent to the men. Many of them come from the slow, lethargic countries of southern Europe, where modern mills are unknown, and when hurt, Harvest of Hurts. Deputy Fact cry inspector Ilugn O'Donnell estimates that 6,000 men are killed or Injured each year in four of the mills of the Caruegie Steel company. In one of the mills where 12.UO0 men are employed, It Is said that rarely, a day elapses that two or three men are not hurt. The Car negie Steel company employs some thing like 50,000 men, and it is esti mated that fully 10 per cent of them are killed or Injured each year. So far as fatalities alone are con cerned, the railroads lead. Last year t'hey snuffed out a life for every day of the year. Besides this they In jured nearly 4,000 people. Last Oc tober they killed no less than 35 per sons In Allegheny county. Next to the mills and railroads the mines cause the most outright deaths, but here, again, the figures tell only a portion of the tale. According to the coroner's report, 110 persons were killed In mines, last year, and this, with those injured, brings the total of casualties up to 400. Work Days' Toil. It must be remembered that, thre have been no great-disasters In the mills, factories or on the railroads in Allegheny county during the last year. These victims to the Moloch of pro gress and rush are just the ordinary casualties in the Industrial battle. The compilation of these statistics however, has opened the eyes of the state factory Inspectors, and Chief Factory Inspector J. C. Delaney has announced that an investigation of the furnaces, mills and factories ol the Pittsburg district will be made earlv this year, with a view of en forcing the laws more stringently. The movement for this Inspection was started by the United Labor league. Pitcher Norwood Gibson is studying chemistry ami spend his winter months learning the science. Outfielder .lack Flouinoy of the St. Paul Club has been died for divorce. His wife declares that he has wander ed away from the home plate. Joe Cans offers t'o fight Nelson and Itrltt In the sumo ring with one hour's rest between battles. The dingy cer tainly has a giHxl press agent. Gene de Montreville Is In the sulks over the salary offered 'him by the Toledo Club and will probably hold out two weeks longer before signing.

The fight, these two little fellows put up out In Los Angeles the other niht stamps them as among the really clever featherweights of the country. .Toe Sugilen, th.p St. Ixiuis catcher. who was a voter when base ball was in short pants, is to be released by St. Louis.

LET TAX BOBGER'S HOME BURN; BAR HIS GHILBREN FROM SCHOOL SCmi Denison. Texas, Feb. 9. With drawal of the benefits of fire protec tion and of the right to send their children to school Is the suggestion made by Alex. W. Acheson, mayor, of Deulson, Texas, as a means of forcing tax delinquents to pay up. 'The mayor's scheme was formally submitted to the council and a com nuuee was appointed to report upon jthe matter. To the council the mayor said that about $30,000 in taxes were unpaid. "These delinquents are not always the shiftless or poverty stricken. .Some of them are among the most successful business men In the com munity. One-third of the delinquent taxes are due the school fund. If Ahev were Daid the directors could Increase the salary of every teacher 4-0 a month. "One man kicks' on $3.75 taxes on a four-room house when he sends three children to school. Another who howls at a tax of 47 cents has four children at school. Their neg- S3 ' I! MAYOR A. W. ACHESON. ligence In promptly paying taxes is a blow at the Intelligence of the ris ing generation; it is a slap at their own children." Regarding the advisability of let ting the property of delinquents burn Mavor Acheson said: "When a man stops paying his Are insurance premium, the insurance ceases. If a doren men are in line passing buckets of water to a burning house, should they bo expected to continue work when the owner stands Idly by and does not lend a hand to extinguish the flames? Of twenty seven runs by the fire department lately, nine were to the property of peonle who refuse to uav taxes whlcn keep the machines running while six more delinquents lived in adjoining houses which -would have burned had the fire hose not reached them. "As these people have set them selves in a class separate from the; rest of the citizens, it Is no more than proper that we should recognize them as declining to participate in the cost of running the business of the city, and therefore entitled to a minimum of its benefits." Mayor Acheson is thoroughly In earnest In his proposition. Pitcher Nash, who won the majority of his games for Las Vegas last sum mer, is holding down a clerical posi tion under Postmaster F. O. Blood, at the Meadow City.. First Baseman Lyons, Fielder Billy Taylor, and Short St.op Dickerson are others, of the last year Las Vegas Blues who will wear the blue again next summer. Sam Most, the Kansas City plunger, who cleaned up $30,0oo on the lHinies last fall, becaino a bookmaker at City Park, New Orelans, but did not find things as easy as he had anticipated. He has just been ruled off for trying to influence Jockey Smith to do some weird. rifling. Most denied the charges, but the evidence was too strong. O Tom l.oftus is negotiating for the purchase of the Kansas City Blues. Tbeau has placed a pretty stiff fig ure on the team and that may block the deal. Tebeau wants to sell a tall end team for a 1-2-3 price. Base ball is so dead in Kansas City it. will take several years to revive It, because of the cheese-paring policy pursued by the Louisville-Kansas City-Denver au tocrat.

January 8. Three brothers received the degree at the same time, it being obligatory to confer it upon three can didates at one and the same time. The fact that three brothers were in the team Is the first occurrence of the hind on record in Masonic history. The names of the three are: Mon tezuma Miller, was born In Ringoes Point, Missouri, March 12, 18t.lt ; he received the lodge degree in 1901 In Roswell Lodge No. IS. A. F. & A. Ma sons and the Chapter degrees In Co lumbia Chapter No. C, in Roswell, the Royal Arch degree having been con ferred upon him January 8th last in company with his two brothers, Fred H. Miller and Walter C. Miller. Fred H. Miller was born in Rocky Comfort, Misourl, April 17, 1872; he received the lodge degree In 19U5 in Roswell Ixxlge No. 18, A. F. & A. Ma sons, and the Chapter degree in Co lumbia Chapter No. 6, the Royal Arch degree having been conferred upon him January 8 last, In company with his two brothers, Montezuma and Walter C. Miller.
