RIG APARTMENT HOUSE FALLS.
unibles Into Crowded New York
Street, Killing Several People.
New York, Dec. I. Broadway at
fil'd street was suddenly transformed
late this afternoon from a .scene of
bustling activity to one ol* desolate
wreckage when a nine story apart
ment bouse, under repair, collapsed,
burying several people beneath the
debris. Al least one person is be
lieved to liavo 1)0011 killed, and six
Others have boon accounted for.
Broadway was crowded with shop
pers, workers hurrying lo their
homes, and afternoon t bea I re-goers
when a terrille c nus ll rent tho air ns
the building toppled into Ibo stree!
Fortunately the bulk of the debris
foll into .".Jd street, which was com
paratively free from vehicular and
pedestrian traffic, although tons of
wreckage slid into Broadway itself.
Six persons, three of them buried in
Ibo wreckage and later rescued, were
injured. Searchers expressed fear to
night thal other pedestrians, seen
passing the building, may have been
caught beneath the lons of wreckage,
covering the sidewalk In places to a
cl opt li of six feet.
Smaller Crushes Occur.
, Smaller crashes occurred at inter
vals to-night aa sections of Hie wall
which remained standing after the
first crash, gave way. Other totter
ing sections threatened tho lives of
firemen and policemen who searched
the debris for bodies In the glare of
powerful searchlights.
Only the ground door was occu
pied, an automobile concern having
its offices there. The injured persons
were mainly employees of this con
cern and workmen employed in re
pairing tho building. Three girls In
Hie automobile establishment wore
buried beneath tho wreckage, but
were rescued, suffering only from
cuts and bruises.
Bolleo to-night held back crowds
in Broadway while workmen engaged
in the city building department
risked their lives in an effort to re
lieve the weight on tho upper ffoors
and prevent the sagging wall to tho
Broadway side of the structure from
giving way.
The man believed to have boen
killed was Jeff Smith, a foreman em
ployed by the wrecking compnay. A
fellow employee, working near Smith
on an upper pai% of the building, re
ported that he saw the foreman car
ried down in tho falling debris with
the first crash.

MIM-} WORKKRS WILL OPPOSE
Any Wage Reduction-?Must ll<?l<l tu
Whait They Have Gullied.
Indianapolis, ind.. Doc I.-Tho
United .Mino Workers ot'America will
not stund for any reduction in wages,
according to tho December 1 issue of
the United Mine Workers' Journal.
This policy is gluted In connection
with a discussion of tho movement
among employers throughout tho
country for ll induction of wages in
the various industries. In tho article
John li. Lewis, international presi
dent of the mitlers' union, is quoted
as follows:
'.'Under no circumstances will wo
permit any reduction in wages ol
the mine workers of the country.
There is not goliiK lo be any return
lo pre-war Wilges or conditions. Any
reduction in wages is an economic
tnistirko. lt never produces any good
result. What tho mino workers have
?y we are going to hold, and wo
propose to continue, lo make progress
instead of going backward."
The Journal, in part, says:
"lt is absolutely essential that the
union have a de fl ni to and substan
tial policy and that t lit? membership
'..?il stand behind that policy in a
solid phalanx. And the most essen
tial element in thal policy for the
next two years must he that there
shall be no backward step. The coal
miners lillis! liol lose any of tho
things that they have won through
sacrifice and struggle, it is a well
known fad that there is in tho coun
try to-day ti woll-dellned and highly
financed and ably-conducted move
ment on the purl of employers op
posed to IradftK unionism lo break
down tho unions ..:..:! reduce tho
workers to the open shop, low-wage
system. This is one of the greatest
dangers that now confront the labor
movement,
"The policy of the United Mine
Workers of America on that subject
has been made plain and clear to the
world by president .1 olin L. Lewis.
Ile has said that there shall he no
reduction in tho wages of the coal
miners of America.
"There is thc policy of the United
Mine Workers. In making that state
ment Presiden I Lewis told the world
what the United Mine Workers of
America stand for. lt is tho unquali
fied duty of every member of tho
union to stand firmly behind the in
ternational officers. To hold hack, to
hesitate or to fall to give thc Inter
national officials full support and
co-operation would be an indication
of division."

AS EUROPE SEES Mil. WILSON.
'Wc I lavo Pound (lio Mun; tho Rest

Genova, Switzerland, Dec. l.-A
lotlor to President Wilson, acceptin g
Iiis ol?or to act as mediator in Ai
monia, was being drafted by ino
council of the Dengue of Nation^
bore to-day. Mr. Wilson's note, re
ceived tliis morning, was road to iii
mom hors o? tho council at io... >
o'clock, and was received with marm
or liveliest satisfaction.
President Wilson's acceptance ere
a ted a great Impression when lt was
announced to-day.
"Poor old Europe will fool le.-s
abandoned." was a remark made by
a member ol' the French delegation
will lo discussing the matter. The
news gave Hie assembly great relic:',
as the Armenian question bas becoir. .
the bugbear of tho assembly.
There is much speculation as to
what form tho mediation of Armenia
will take. A. .1. Halfour. a leader of
tho British delegation, has remark
ed to thc assembly that In order lo
negotiate il would be necessary lo
offer Mustapha Kemel, chief of lim
Turkish Nationals, something-either
money or territory-and this remaru
is recalled In connection with Mr.
Wilson's well known opposition to
some paris of Turkey by tho Severcs
treaty.
Deduction is made hero thal in
(lie end the (Heidts will pay the price
tor saving what remains .ot the Ar
menian people.
"President Wilson's action is t
bii; step toward a solution of one of
Hie most serious problems before iii"
assen:lily." was the way Lord Roher!
Cecil characterized the American
President's acceptance.
"That is wonderful nows," he de
clared when the information was
given him. "lt brings relief to all of
us who are trying to find a way to
help the Armenians out of their dif
ficulties. Mr. Wilson's acceptance is
commendable and worthy of the best
traditions of tho United States which
have always boen a friend of Ar
menia and taken the lead in alleviat
ing her suu'erings.
"The decision of Presidont Wil
son ls not in any sense political, from
my point of viow, and cannot nive
encouragement to all those who wish
to see the United States in the league.
lt is simply a natural development
of an old humanitarian policy."
Dr. FridtJ, of Nanson, wWfr had
heon ono of the first to boconio In
terested In Armenia, and ls a mem
ber ot Hie committee considering
developments in that country, was
rather inclined to pessimism yester
day. When he heard the nows to
day, however, he beamed with Joy.
"We have found the man," he
cried, "and the rest will be easy."
The reply to the American presi
dent, lt was stated, expressed deop
appreciation of the President's ac
ceptance. The Allied High Commis
sioners at Constantinople, lt says.arc
being consulted as to the best way
for Mr. Wilson to proceed.
The council, lt is added, believes
there will bo no great diffculty as to
the President's mediators conferring
with Mustapha Komal Pasha, the
Turkish Nntloanl leader, who has
boen making war upon the Armen
ians.

TERRACING MEANS IMPROVING. ?
_ I
I
Tonn??? Hillsides und Holling Ninds
io Slop soil Washing.
There's scarcely a farmer in Ulta
country, within the rain bolt, but
who lias .some land subject, ?nore or
loss, to anil washing. The torrential
rains of thc spring and summer, as
they rush down the hilliseds and
sloping fields, carry with them u
heavy toll of the fertile top soil,
leaving ditches and gullies in their
wake. When this waste is allowed
to go on unhindered, the land soon
becomes barren and unproductive,
and is tinnily abandoned.
Field terracing has been found to
be the most effective and permanent
solution to combat this ovil. Ter
racing Is no new method, lt has been
carried on by the farmers in Europe
for generations, but it ls only re
cently that it is being practiced In
the United States, and chiefly In the
South and Southwest. Agricultural
colleges, county demonstration agents
and other agencies Interested In the
promotion of better farming are now
stressing the Importance of this work
to tho farmers.
Terraces and What They Are,
Terraces are broad banks of earth,
averaging four to twenty feet In
width and eighteen inches In height,
thrown up on a lovel and parallel
ing each other around the hillside or
across a rising slope. Bear in mind
a well graded road, and you will at
once conceive what a terrace ls like.
Those terraces bold back tho water,
causing tho most of it to seep into
the ground and retain moisture for
the growing crops, while the balance
is allowed to run off gradually
around the hillsides and escape by
way of suitable outlets provided at
the ends of the terraces.
The top six inches of soil contains
about 7"i to KT, per cent of the avali
able plant food. The farmers cannot
permit this soil to go on washing
away each year. Terracing ls already
hoing practiced extensively in some
sections of this country, but in thou
sands of counties the destruction of
hillsides and sloping Holds is going
on at an alarming rate, lt is time
for the farmers and business mon to
wake up and take the necessary steps
to stop this waste.
Look About You.
The evil of erosion ls all about you.
Don't be deceived. At llrst glance
those washes just beginning to ap
pear In the hillsides may not
amount to much; but if allowed to
go on washing, in tho course of a few
yoars tho first thing you know tho
whole hlllsido will becomo so badly
gulliod as to be unfit for cultivation.
Even abandoned gullied hillsides
? can ho reclaimed by torraclng, and
by deop plowing and fertilizing, now
soil can bo rapidly built up.
Torraclng Is not oxponslvo. It is
ostlmatod that tho cost averages $2
lo $3 por acre-much less than the
amount spent each year on commer
cial fertilizer that is lost by washing
away.
Neither is terracing difficult. Any
farmer can do it. The most import
ant tiling is to run the lines correctly.
lt is best, to ask the county agent to
show you how to do this work. Af
ter the terraco lines aro located the
rest is easy. All the equipment re
quired is a farm level, a plow and a
V-shaped steel ditcher-terracer.
Terraco Now.
Terraces should bo constructed in
the fall of the year, and whero possi
ble sown over with cover crops. Sucb
terraces hold much better, and do
not wash as badly as when made at
other seasons of the year.
Consult your county agont or get
in touch with the extension depart
ment of your State agricultural col
lege in regard to this work. Don't
delay. Start now.
