SICILY AND ITS DISASTER.
Tho population of tho Island ot
Sicily in 1901 Is given as S.r.liD.L'CG.
The Province of Messina has a popu
lation of r,4S,SHS and Pnlcimo 7S.',-
With these figures before one, It Is
easier to believe In the accuracy of
tho figures telling of the great loss ot
life from tho euithquake and tidal
wave which have wrought one ot tho
great disasters of history.
Judging from the dispatches, the
legion suffering from the cnithnuakb
and swept by tho tidal wave includes
the whole northern coast of tho Isl
and ot Sicily f i om Messina on the
east to Palermo on the west. Tho
Island llos southwcbt ot tho "too" ol
The physical features of the Island
are described as follows: A raugo of
mountains commencing on tho north
eastern cxtiemlty of tho Island
stretches across It taking the name
first of the Neptunian and then of
the Madonlnn mountains. Tho whole
range bears a strong resemblance to
tho branch of the Appcnnlnes, which
stretches to the bouthern extremity
of Italy and strongly countenances
tho opinion generally entertained
that It was originally continuous
with It and that Sicily consequently
must nt some time hae been not an
Island but n part of tho European
The most remarkable physical fea
ture of Sicily mid one of the greatest
wonders ot tho world Is Mount Etna,
which Is 10,871 feet high. Compar
ed with this nil the other summits
are insignificant, being from 3000 to
4000 feet high. Tho sides of the
mountains aro covered with magnifi
cent forests. Tho rivers and streams
The climate is very mild, hence
the popularity of Sicily for winter
tourists. Much rain falls, usually
commencing In November, and con
tinuing to fall, nt intervals, often in
heavy torrents, till March.
Etna itself and tho largo circular
space of which It forms tho center,
oxtcndlng west to Ilrento and east to
the coast over the whole tract that
lies between Catania and Taormlna
Is covered completely with volcanic
products. Sulphur has been worked
in mines for more than three centur
ies and Is extensively exported.
Messina, the center of tho earth
quako devastation, has been celebrat
ed slnco It was first founded nnd be
came one ot the principal cities of
The proximity to Mount Etna has
made the scctluu suffering from tho
recent upheaval subject to frequent
disturbances but not of an especially
alarming character. Two causes op
erate to Increase the death list. In
European countries the people, in
times of disaster, rush for tho
churches whero they expect tho spe
cial protection of Providence, The
churches aro old, quickly crumble,
and hundreds arc killed In tho ruins.
Tho tidal wavo which apparently
) swept along the entlro north coast
wns also a terrible factor In swelling
tho death roll.
Now Mr. Mayor, what do you think
of the Organic Act clutugos? And Is
't jour Intention to conduct your ofllco
on tho plan of starting legislation and
allowing the people to luain of it as
best they may?
