Lightning Fires Million
Barrels of Oil in Texas
Spectacular Blaze Sweeps Gulf
Production Company Tank
Farm at Humble
HOUSTON, Tei,, Nov. 12.?More
than one million barrels of oil was
doomed early to-night, and indications
were that a similar amount probably
would be consumed, in a spectaculai
fire sweeping the Gulf Production
Company tank farm at Humble. Light
ning caused the blaze.
Three enormous underground reser?
voirs, said to have a capacity oi
400,000 barrels each, caught fire, and
the blazing oil spread rapidly toward
three other nearby pits. The whole
farm consists of twenty tanks, all ol
which may be lost.
The blaze can be seen for miles.
The farm is situated on a prairie
1 end fearb are entertained that oil will
| spread beyond immediate property. The
j site is three miles from Humble, how?
ever, and will not menace the town.
While the oil belongs technically t?
the Gulf Production Company th?
earthen storage belongs to the Gull
Pipe Line Company, a subsidiary.
Workers were handicapped in fight?
ing the blaze both because of the heal
and the condition of the field. Ralni
have almost flooded the section anc
fire fighting apparatus could not b<
moved in quickly. Efforts were being
made to keep the blaze back by th<
use of steam.

Repeal of Kansas Labor Court Law
To Be First Job of Governor Davis
Special Dispatch to The Tribun?
LAWRENCE, Knn., Nov. 12.?"The firs< tning I intend to do as
Governor is to bring about repeal of the industrial court law."
That is the statement made here to-day by Governor-elect Jonathan
M. Davis, who was one of the spectators of the Kansas-Nebraska foot?
ball game yesterday.
"The court has been unfair and unjust," the Governor-elect said,
"and there is no need or place for it in Kansas. There have been only
a few cases before it and none of them has been settled satisfactorily.
"The state needs officers who will arrest the wealthy man as quickly
as the poor, and then the public will respect officers of the law and
laws will be obeyed. Obnoxious laws cannot exist as long as I am
Governor. The industrial court law is one of them."

Mrs. Russell's story is that on the
night of the murder at the \ery hour
Mrs. Gibson says she was observing
the killing of Dr. Hall and Mrs. Mills,
the farm woman actually was engaged
in conversation with her about a dog.
Mrs. Russell's story is that this aog

she wound her alarm clock at 9:45 her
other dog began to bark. Then there
was a knock at the door. It was Mrs.
Gibson, according to the colored

Lieut. Blaney, of Mitchel
Field, Meets Death as

at Hartford Air Meet
Flames Consume Body

Tragedy; Army Officials
to Order Investigation
Special Mspatch to The Tribun?
HARTFORD, Conn., Nov. 12.?Lieu?
tenant John Bluney, of the army air
service, stationed at Mitchel Field,
Long Island, was killed this afternoon
during a Ihree-day air meet here in
celebration of Armistice Day.
Blaney was the sole occupant of a
De Haviland-4 entered in the twenty
five-mile relay race und was making a
cross-wind landing, coming from the
south, with a brisk breeze from the
northwest across his course, when his
left wing tip fouled the top branches
of a tree at the south end of Brainard
Field, the municipal landing station.
The airplane slipped and fell. The
impact cracked the gasoline tank, and
before men who had begun to rush to?
ward the spot as soon as the wing tip
brushed the tree top could reach the
plane it was wrapped in flames.
Blaney's body was partly consumed
before it could be dragged from the
It is believed that as he reached the
level of the tree-tops he slid into an
air-pocket caused by cross-currents
which caused his wing tip to drop just
enough to foul the branches.
Blaney's airplane was equipped with
a Liberty motor and was capable of
great speed. He was traveling fast,
probably 115 miles an hour, at th? low
altitude usual to a relay race, and close
observers say he was watching almost
entirely out of the right side of the
cockpit. Apparently he saw and eas?
ily cleared a tree on his right side, but
failed to notice a taller tree on the
left, his attention being concentrated
on the relay race.
H?3 flying partner, Lieutenant Val?
entine, was waiting to take off and fin?
ish the race as soon as the wheels of
Blaney's plane touched the ground. The
race was never finished, for Valentine
cut off his motor and ran to aid Blaney.
Although the pilot's body was
burned beyond recognition, it was said
here to-night that Blaney's death was
instantaneous as a result of the ter?
rific crash when the speeding plane
was brought up short by the tree and
turned over on the ground. Blaney
leaves a wife, a native of California,
who is now at Mitchel Field. The body
will probably be buried at the National
Cemetery at Arlington.
Victim Was Texan
Blaney was thirty years old. His
home was in Texas. He had been a
pilot for five years and until recently
was stationed in the Philippines. He
was one of the most popular pilots at
the meet and was the winner of a bomb?
ing contest which took place yesterday.
Major Junius Jones, of Mitchel Field,
is conducting an inquiry to determine
the cause of the accident.
Forty other pilots at the meet con?
tinued to engage in contests and take
up passengers for three hours after the
Word of Lieutenant Blaney's death
brought gloom to Mitchel Field yester?
day afternoon. His bride of ten months
was almost prostrated with grief, and
Major Weaver, the commandant, was
visibly affected when he opened the tel?
egram reporting the young aviator's
death. Many officers at the post had
served overseas or in the Philippines
with the dead lieutenant.
Lieutenant Blaney was among the
first to enroll for the aviation training
camps after this country entered the
war. He received his commission in
1917. Since then he has served both
in the Philippines and in Germany.
He was placed in charge of the 6th
Observation Squadron when he was
transferred to Mitchel Field last
March and was generally considered
one of the best flyers at the post. Of

Doom of Film Censorship Seen
When Smith Becomes Governor
The election of Al Smith as Governor
is believed to sound the doom of cen?
sorship of motion pictures in this
state, which has been the subject of
widespread criticism, particularly as
applied to news films. Governor-elect
Smith has declared his intention of
abiding by his pledges and those of
his party and among the latter is the
following plank in tha Democratic
j platform, referring to the passage of
the censorship law by the Republi?
"They have passed an arbitrary and
tyrannical motion picture censorship
| law. We believe that a free press, un
! trammeled public criticism, the un?
fettered expression of moral and re?
ligious opinion and the adequate en?
forcement of the police power by local
officials are the remedies for any
abuses that may exist in the exhibi?
tion of motion pictures."
Smith himself took occasion many
times during his campaign tour of the
state to denounce the censorship meas
lure and other Republican measures of
a paternalistic character.
When he takes office in Albany he
will find himself backed by a State
Senate in which his party will have
control by one vote and with an Assem?
bly that will be Republican by not
more than two or three votes, ana it is
thought that the censorship law will be
one of the first Republican measures
to be attacked.
The slight Republican majority in
the Assembly will be more than offset,
it is thought, in case the censorship act
comes up for repeal, by the vote? of
Republican members of the body, who
are opposed to censorship of the films.
State Senator James J. Walker, of
this city, an intimate friend and pow?
erful supporter of the Governor-elect,
wili be president pro tern, of the Senate
and probably will !ead the fight in that
body ajrainst the censorship law. He
fought unsuccessfully against its pas?
sage in 1921.
The film censors of the state are

Asking Abolition-of the
Seniority System and
Recognition for Liberals
Guard of Power
Effort to Gain Control of

Close to Revolt in West
By Carter Field
CopyrlKht. 1022, Now York Tribune Inc. |
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12.?Immediate i
Progressive control of the Senate?and !
through it of the Republican party
was practically demanded of Republi
can Leader Henry Cabot Lodge in a j
letter from Senator Medill McCor- i
mick made public to-night.
The words of the McCormick letter |
are soft, but underlying- them is a big1
stick of extreme hardness. He speaks
mildly of a steering committee in sym- ,
pathy with the majority of the parly's ?
members in the Senate, and of aboli- j
tion of the seniority rule with regard
to committee chairmanships.
The effect of his words, if carried |
out, would be to strip the old lino I
Republicans now occupying the seats'
of the mighty in the Senate of their '?
power, and to lay the foundation for !
a control of the next Retrublican co,n- i
vention, which would put most of the j
present so-called leaders on the shelf, j
Both Parties in Senate's Grip j
The real control of both the Re
publican and Democratic parties for a :
long time now has reposed in the Sen- i
ate. This concentration of power be- I
came more noticeable right after 1918,
when the so-called Senate oligarchy j
forced the issue on which the 1920 !
campaign was fought and nominated j
Warren G. Harding, one of its num
ber, for President.
The move just made by Senator Mc- !
Cormick is the opening gun of a cam
paign to strip the old line leaders of
their power, but shrewd observers here
believe that Mr. McCormick stole a
march on his progressives and radical
colleagues when he fired it. He has
known their ideas, however, through
the campaign, which he passed mostly
in the Middle West, where the chief
progressive and radical victories were
McCormick was almost alone of all
the Republican Senators in wishing to
extend aid during the campaign to Lynn
J. Frazier, the Nonpartisan League ex
Governor of North Dakota, who was
elected Senator last Tuesday to fill the
seat of Porter J. McCumber. Almost
every other Republican of national
importance was privately praying that
J. F. T. O'Connor, the Democratic con?
servative nominee against Frazier,
: would be elected. The same crowd of
political leaders in North Dakota
fought for the election of Governor
Nestos, Republican, and O'Connor,
Democrat. Buttons with the pictures
of these two men?probably toe first
campaign buttons ever bearing pic?
tures of both a Democrat and a Re?
publican nominee?were widely worn.
McCormick Loud for Progressives
McCormick was a party Progressive
in 1912, and has ben loud ever since
in his insistence that the Progressive
wing of the Republican party, after
"ts return to the fold in 1916, should
be given a larger voice.
It was generally accepted in Wash?
ington to-night that McCormick's ref?
erence in his letter to Lodge of Senate
committee chairmen who should be re?
moved to give place to men in sympa?
thy with tfie new political tides would
include, among other things, that a
liberal should be named chairman of
the Finance Committee instead of
Reed Smoot, who. owing to the defeat
of Senator McCumber, would fall
heir to' that chairmanship through
There is much curiosity on the other
hand about what Mr. McCormick's idea
is about the Senate Interstate Com?
merce Committee. Senator Cummins,
now the chairman of that committee,
is in poor health, and has been most
unhappy because of the violent man?
ner in which many successful candi?
dates this year attacked the Esch
Cummins railroad law, among them
Smith W. Brookhart, who was elected
' y a tremendous majority in Mr. Cum
mins's own state of Iowa. As a result
of the defeat of Senator Townsend, of
Michigan, on that same issue among
others, Robert M. La Follette rank3
r.ext on that committee.
The picture of La Follette as chair?
man of the Interstate Commerce Com?
mittee is one to cause cold chills in
Wall Street and in Main Street as well.
Bl-Party Bio? Might Stop It
There is some doubt as to whether

Otto Jacobs, the eleven-year-old
Montvale, N. J., boy who shot and
killed five-year-old Catherine Sullivan
Saturday afternoon, was arrested yes?
terday on a technical charge of man
Slaughter and committed to the
Hackensack jail. The decision to take
him into custody was reached after
District Attorney A. C. Hart had
learned that the boy's brother had
jumped his bail a short time ago after
being charged with larceny.
The authorities also took into con?
sideration the conflicting stories told
at various times by the elder members
of the Jacobs family and decided that
there is more chance of getting a cor?

boy if he is kept away from his

the Jacobs boy and that he is convinced

SANTIAGO, Chile, Nov. 12 (By
The Associated Press).?With par?
tial re-establishment of communi?
cations Chile's earthquake catastrc
'.?? is revealed in even greater ny.?S
njtude than first reports indicated.
It is estimated that at least 3,00U
are dead ;:nd many thousands are in
distress, needing food and shelter.
In addition to heavy casualties of
dead and injured at Copiapo and Co?
quimbo it was reported to-day that
500 were killed in Valletta? and tiio
surrounding district. Vailenar was
virtually destroyed and the sur?
vivors are in critical condition. It
i.-eenis certain that there have been
casualties in other towns and Vit?
lages aroui^d Copiapo, to the south,
concerning which no news is yet
Twenty-four Bodies Found at Coquimbo
Already twenty-four bodies have
been recovered at Coquimbo, where it
is known there are 100 or moi-e dead.

It was an earthquake and tidal wave
combined that accounted for the vast
| destruction in the provinces of Anto
! fa^aata, Atacania and Coquimbo. The
i movement of the ocean is described
j as phenomenal. It gave evidence of ?
j terrific disturbance in the bed of the
] Pacific itself. There must have been
such a tearing at the bottom of the
sea that immense quantities of water
i were sucked through. causing a
?tremendous reces ion o? the waters
along the Chilean coast.
Several times the ocean swept out?
ward and came back in the shape of a
great wave, flooding the seaports and
in some instances sweeping away the
water front. The violent effects of the
tidal waves were felt from Antofagasta
on the north to Valdividia on Van
south, covering about sixteen Ci?gree?
of latitude, or more than 1,200 ml.es.
Vessels in Ports Destroyed
All types oi craft iying in the
various harbors -vere swept on shore,
wrecked or left high and dry, and at
scores of small ports wharves and
quays were destroyed. Chilean naval
vessels in the harbor at Talcahuano,
about 300 miles south of Valparaiso,
when they felt the force of the water?,
slipped their cables and proccedco out
to the open sea.
President Alessandri has ordered the
various government departments to
take all measures possible for the re?
lief of the sufferers in the stricken
districts, those most sorely afflicted
lying between Coquimbo, and Copiapo.
The Navy Department has sent ships
along the coast to aid in the work.
COQUIMBO, Chile, Nov. 12 (By The
Associated Press).?The port of Co?
quimbo was awakened at 11:55 o'clock
Friday night by violent earthquakes
and in a few minutes the populace
was running about the streets in terror,
only partially clothed and seeking the
nearby hills. The panic was increased
when the electric lights went out in
some parts of the town.
Coincident with the shocks the sky
was illuminated by electric discharges
and fires broke out. After the first
shocks the" sea receded for a consid?
erable distance and then swept back
in an immense wave, extending from
Coquimbo to La Serena, seven miles to
the northeast, flooding the town and
the whole coast line and doing much
Ships Thrown Inshore Five Blocks
The tidal wave added to the terrors
of the people, many of whom cried out
for aid. Again the sea receded for a
distance of 300 yards beyond the low
tide mark, then seemed to gather force
and came back in an immense wave es?
timated at fifty meters in height, which
j completely destroyed the Baquedano
j quarter. A number of big lighters were
| rucked up like chips and carried beyond
the railway bridg?, which is five blocks
j from the low tide mark.
VALPARAISO, Chi'e, Nov. 12 (Ey
The Associated Press).?A curious
feature of the earthquake was the
: tidal wave which occurred two hour*
I Inter, indicating a terrific disturbance
' beneath the Pacific. The waters were
j first sucked away from the coast and
i then hurled back. This phenomenon
j was repeated five times at Antofagasta
