THOUSANDS KILLED AND II
Twelve Thousand Persons Per
ifh and More Than Twenty
Thousand Are Injured
By Falling Houses
ROME, Jan. 13.?Italy has been visited by an earthquake of
wide extent which, according to the latest advices, has resulted in the
death of 12,000 and injury to possibly 20,000 more in towns and
. The shock was the- strongest Rome has felt in more than a hun
(The town of Avezzano, in the Abruzzi department, 63 miles
east of Rome, has been leveled to the ground and here 8,ooo per
sons are reported to have been killed. ,
In many small towns surrounding Rome buildings were par
tially wrecked, while at Naples a panic occurred and houses fell at
Caserta, a short distance to the east.
From below Naples in the south to Ferrera in the north, a dis
tance of more than 300 miles, and across almost the width of the
country the undulatory movement continued for a, considerable
fti k?rne it was thought at first that two shocks had occurred,
but the seismographic instruments in the observatories showed there
was only one which, beginning at 7:55 o'clock in the morning, last
ed from.22 to 30 seconds.
In the capital itself so far is known there was no less of life,
but a great deal of damage was done, churches and statues suffering
most. For a time the people were stricken with fear and there
'as a veritable panic in hospitals, monasteries and convents.
Buildings on both sides of the Porta del Popolo, the north en
hance to Rome, threatened to fall and the eagle decorating the gate
Crashed to the ground. The obelisk in St. Peter's Square was
shaken and badly damaged, while the statue of St. John Lateran and
the sjatues of th? Apostles surmounting the Basilica are in danger of
collapsing. The famous colonnade decorating St. Peter's Square
was lowered four feet and the adjacent house, once occupied by the
Sisters, of Pope Pius X. was badly cracked.
Gwinr,: to the wide extent of the disturbance of its evident ter
rible consequences the actual effects are not at present known. Com
munications are cut off. The fortified city of Aquila is isolated, but
it Is Reported several villages in that region were destroyed. Like
wise P?t^hzift, capital of the province of the same name, on the eas
ii?n declivity of the Apennines which has a population of nearly
20,0Gb, has been isolated. In 1857 this town '/as almost destroy
ed by an earthquake*
Father Alfani, director of the observatory at Valle di Pompeii,
the noted seismologist, has sent the following telegram to Rome:
"Th? earthquake registered by our apparatus appears to have
been most disastrous for a radius of more, than one hundred miles.
Probably its center was the province of Potenza. Meanwhile com
inuftlfat?Qns with Potenza are interrupted and a grave disaster there
is ftayed." , /

It was. the second defeat Buffered
by the auftrage cause u- congress
within a Cd March 10 last, an
equal suffrage constitutional amend

senate, obtaining a bare majority, but
not the necessary two-third8.
Suffragist leaders, undismayed by
the result of tonight's vote, declared
that the. fight was by no means over.
Mrs. Anna Howard Shaw and other
prominent suffragist- who Bat with

predicted a moire' favorable result

Antl-suirrigiRis were weii B?Uui?ed.
"The result was what wo expected,"
said Mrs. Arthur M. Dodge, president

Clark, after quiet had been restored,
made a final threat to clear the gal

Opponents of the measure based
their opposition largely on the argu
ment that for the federal government
to prescribe qualifications for suffrage
would be un unwarranted Invasion of
the right of Individual States to con
trol their elections; and upon the
contention that there was no ade
quate "public demand" for the amend
ment. Advocates of the amendment
contend that the widespread demand
for woman suffrage, its success In the
States where it has been tried, and
the principle of "allowing the people
to rule," Justified submission of the
proposal to the States for ratification.
Majority Leader I'nderwood oppos
ed the amendment, and Minority
Leader Mann, announcing his willing
ness to "trust the affairs of the nation
to the management of its women,"
supported it. Representative Under

INSTEAD OF THE PROPOSED
GRAIN ELEVATOR IS NOW
Was Held Yesterday at Clemson
College With Reference to the
(From Wednesday's Dally).
A representative of the chamber of
commerce returned yesterday from
("lemeon College, where he was in con
ference with official* of the Bureau of
Markets und Mr. W. W. Long .State
agricultural agent, with regard to
working out plans to move the grain
crop in Anderson county this year.
ClemBon (,'ollege estim?tes that 65,000
acres have been planted in wheat and
oats alone in this county this year. Of
ficials or the Bureau of Markets sent
j direct from Washington, have gone
'over the situation and are of the opin
ion that something must be worked
out at onco to handle the crop.

FARMERS UNION IN
Adopt Important Resolution From
Chairman of Committee for
Good of the Order.
(From Wednesday's Dally).
The adoption of a resolution from J.
C. Strlbbling, chairman of tho com
mittee for the good or the order. An
derson County Farmers' Union, was
the principal matter or Interest tran
sacted yesterday at the regular meet
ing or the organization which was
held at 11 o'clook in tho county court
The resolution in full is as follows:
"Pendleton, S. C.,,.Jan. 12, 1915.
From. J. C. Strlbbling, Chairman Com
mittee Good or the Order, Anderson
County Farmers' Union.
The first is that the time Is ripe
now to convert the old man that pro
gressive farming along this line is
profitable, pleasant and improves his
lands avery day in the year, and when
the father Is converted, it Is easy
then to get him to aid his son along
this new Une. < -
As to our undeveloped resources,
there is nothing that "would add more
to the assets of our county and State
than to feed to stock and poultry, the
thousands of acres of grass that goes
to wasto each year right at the doors
of the cotton former that purchase the
very same food which is made from
grass in other places. In a radius of
five tulles of Pondleton, there 1b more
than three thousand acres of Bermu
da and other grasse? and indigenous
clovers that arc> only partially until
Ized for stock and there are numbers
of other sections in our State In the.
In reply to several Inquiries as to
the. best cure lor the very sick cotton
grower, will say that after more than
*.0 years experience'In the stock, dairy
and poultry business, that there is
no branch of the farming interests
In South Carolina'- that offers a more,
profitable business and permanent im
provement to our lands than the live
stock, dairy and poultry business. In
all those years of close attention to
and observation In this business, I
am convinced that nino-tenths of the
failures in this business come from
the lack of proper knowledge of what
constitute balance rations, for milk,
, eggB young stock and poultry - and I
the marketing of all these products.
And since Clemson Collego and oui
State and nation has: now taken these
very important features up in a Co
operative way with farmers, I consider
this as. the best work that Clemson
has ever done for tho farmer for many
In our early days in the dairy and
stock business, we had to guess at
what were proper rations tor milk
or growing cattle and also what cow
did not pay her keep,* hut now Clem
son College stands ready With years
of experience behind things to tell us
in a few moments the facts all along
the many places where we have lost
money and our patience, that caused
many to le-g faith and courage and
say that S ath Carolina is not a stock
country, which is the fact, but it is
not because of the soli and climate,
but because our people have not given
stock growing the same attention they
have given cotton. If the rame In
terest and financial backing v hlch has
been given cotton is given stock grow
ing, It will be proven that the Pied
mont region of tho State is better
adapted to stock and poultry than cot

(hp Anderson representative is of the
opinion that ins("eud of building
grain elevator in Anderson this year,
it will be best to lease a warehouse
on the tracks of one of the railroads,
and there receive the grain, sucking
und grading it there, and shipping di
rect from such warehouse, except to
local consumers. Later on when the
corn crop comes in, a sheller will be
Installed. To do this will require the
organization of a grain company with
j about $5,000.00 capital which company
jwlll purchase the grain from the farm
er, and sell the same to milling con
cerns In the Virginias, Carolinas,
Georgia and Florida, and make ex
ports via the ports of Norfolk and
Charleston. Such company will pay for
the grain in cash, selling ( on each
day's market. There will be'no specu
It will be recommended that instead
of taking stock in the grain elevator
that same be taken in the grain com
pany, which should undoubtedly pay a
large dividend. It is believed there will
be no troube experienced in getting
the subscribers to the grain elevator
stock to direct same to the grain com
The whole matter will come up be

commerce in the next few days. j
