Greenville, Aug. 20.?A small cy
clone visited Greenville this afternoon,
]eaving one man dead, 50 or more
houses wrecked or damaged, scores of
trees uprooted, wires down and doing
other damage of more or less consequence.
The wind kept to a path of about 100
yards wide. Its velocity was terrific
and for several minutes after the
storm, leaves and other refuse settled
slowly to the earth.
Sam Williams, a negro man, was
killed when his touse, below Camper
down mill, was wrecked. Tins was an
eight-room structure The wind scattered
it as if the dwelling were made
of pasteboard. At least six other
houses in this section were blown from
their pillars, several of them being
completely wrecked. A wfcite man
named Hollingsworth was slight injured
when the laundry wagon in
which he was riding was blown from
east North street and torn to pieces.
Several other persons received minor

The storm, whicfn struck the city
near the College Place depot then
dipped again near Vardrv mills and
finally struck back of the Boyce Lawnsection
suddenly broke. About 5
o'clock an ugly cloud appeared and
darkness, almost as if night had fallen,
spread over the city. Then there
appeared a glowing streak of light
about tfce borders of the thick gloom,
followed by wild whirrrings of Ihe
cloud. Papers, leaves, pieces of tin
and other trash were seen whirling
over the city, b'ome or tne nnest snaae

several sharp flashes of lightning added
to the grotesque scene, reminding
one of the storm in "David Copper.

Two hundred telephones were disabled.
Business during the later after
noon was demoralized. Hundreds of
curious persons crowded to the districts
where the wind had wrought
its chief damage. Automobiles ran
hurriedly over the streets to ascertain
the damage done.
Several fcouses narrowly averted
destruction when giant oaks fell near
them. A part of the roof of the Vardrv
mill, on Reedv river, was torn off.
The Markley dwelling, one of the oldest
in the city, was severely damaged
and many of the beautiful trees in the
Markley lawn were blown flown.
The roof of the Hunter Wilson lumber
yard office was picked up and carried
over several Itandsome residences
and finally dropped in the front lawn
of a home 100 yards away.i A portion
of a roof taken from a store on North
street was lodged in a tree nearby.
A porch to the residence of D. E. Mc
Cuen on North street was demolished.

fragments of itouses were left on the
campus, while some score of trees are
reported uprated. Fences, out):ouses
and other light structures in the path

SPECIAL FAVORS TO
Amendment to Child Labor Law
Passed This Year.
NEED FOR A FEDERAL LAW.
An effort made in New York last
winter to grant canneries special favors
by permitting them to work their
operatives longer hours was strongly
condemned by the press througtiout tne
country, and the attempt failed. But
no attention was paid to Tennessee
when she did the same thing at about
the same time. In fact, the National
Child Labor Committee regards the
Tennessee amendment us iai muic serious
than the New York one would
have b<*en since the change in the New
York law would not have affected any
children under sixteen, while the Tennessee
amendment permits children under
fourteen to work in canneries and

"It is strange how many states fail to
realize that children ai\) more valuable
than fruits and vegetables," said Owen
R. Lovejoy, general secretary of the
National Child Labor Committee, in
commenting on Tei.nessee's action.
"The idea is so common that canning
goods is more important than protect
ing children that we find not only Tennessee,
but Delaware, Maryland, Indiana,
Maine and Virginia, making special
exemptions to their child labor
laws for the benefit of canneries, while
Mississippi does not regulate them at
all. I do not know why the idea should
prevail that employment in canneries
cannot possibly be harmful to children

worse than in factories.
"We feel that the only successful
way to meet the cannery situation is
through the federal law which will be
introduced in the next congress' and
which, if passed, would prohibit the
shipment outside the state of canned
goods which children under fourteen
had helped to manufacture or on which

day from a woman who wished to
know what variety of canned goods she
could buy and feel sure that no children
had worked on it. We could not
tell her, but we did tell her that if she
would help us in passing a federal law
she could buy any kind of canned
goods with safety."
A "CRIME FACTORY."
So Lewis W. Hine Tells ChiJd Labor
"Crime factory" is the term which
an investigator ror tne isationai umic
Labor Committee made use of in de
scribing the evils of the messengei
service at the Eleventh Annual Con
ference on Child Labor. This man,
Lewis W. Hine. believes that there is
not a messenger boy of any experience
who does not know more about the
underworld than the average citizen
uecause OLie very cuuimuu puaac UJ

messenger whose work had not broughl

The chances of promotion in the
messenger service were summed up bj

The attitude of other employers to
ward the boy who has worked as 8

by Miss Anne Davis of Chicago at i
hearing on the proposed Illinois chilc

California Eliminates Children Under

Among tin.1 new limits established by

quarries. California has mining prod,

j the children who might be employed

had followed industrial development

! FORESTALLING CHILD LABOR
By FELIX ADLER.
The question is sometimes asked
"Whv have a National Child Laboi
1 Committee? Why not have state com
, mittees and let these co-operate?'
One sufficient answer to this is thai
the appearance of child labor in those
states in which there is as yet little
or no manufacturing must be fore
stalled and a national committee is
needed to this end. Anti-child laboi
laws must pre-empt the ground before
a greedy industrialism can stretct
forth its hands to grasp the child
The law of periodicity, the law of re
currence, that has hitherto obtained
in the matter of child labor must bt
defeated. England began, Massachu
setts, Pennsylvania, New York followed
suit The same inconceivable out
rages on human feelings repeat thenr
selves again and again. Whenever e
predominantly agricultural community
develops into an industrial stage the
i horrors exposed by Lord Shaftesbury
tend to recur. Mankind does not read
i ily learn by experience. The warning
! lessons of the past are often writ ir
j water. Thus the industrial states ol
the north simply stepped into tne tou
footsteps of early English capitalism
and the south, as soon as it became in
dustrial, hastened to repeat the same
'< doleful story. The great states of the
! Pacific and the west must thwart thai
low n-nrl mnkp it imnossiblf
I that the same conditions should there
! grow up. That is the one main objecl
I of a national committee.
