Illinois vice crusaders, the senatorial commission headed by Lieutenant Governor Bar rett O'Hara. is in Washington today seeking to nationalize the scope of their inquiry. To that end the commission first sought the aid of President Wil son, with whom they conferred at the White House Lieutenant Governor O'Hara was accompanied at his con ference with the president by the other members of the commission. Senators Edmund Beall. F. Jeff Tossey. D. T. Woodward and Niels Juul. After outlining to the president the results of the inquiry In Illinois, which revealed in mane instances that girls and young working women were paid less than a living wage and that many of them led doube lives, the commis sioners requested the president to call a national conference of state governors to call a systematic and state cam paign to better working conditions of women throughout the nation. Federal co-operation was sought in the movement already begun in many states for the appointment of state commissions, similar to that from Illinois, to conduct inquiries into the wage situation and into organized vice conditions in the various states- At the White House conference the ques tion of federal Inquiry through the de partment of Justice into the white slave traffic also was discussed. Minimum Wage Law. One of the means proposed as basic relief for women was the enactment of a federal minimum wage law. Later today the Illinois commission conducted a hearing to which were invited several hundred prominent welfare workers, clergymen, officials and many prominent women in Wash- inton social and club life. Lieutenant Governor O'Hara sought to learn the opinions of women who move In high social circles concern in gthe influence upon working girls of the extravagance of women of wealth. Among prominent women who ac cepted invitations to the conference were Mrs. Edson Bradley; Mrs. Hen en Jennings, wife of a South African diamond millionaire: Mrs. Christian Hemmick; Madame Havenith. wife of the Belgian minister; Senora Pinano, wife of the Spanish minister: Mrs. Huntington Wilson, and Mrs. W. Hur ry Crane". Ardeen Foster, international com missioner of the British federation for emancipation of sweated women and girls, had a conference with Mr. O'Hara during the morning and ac companied the Illinois commission to the White House. The Illinois in vestigators, in an executive session to day, determined not to go to New York at this time, but to return to Springfield from Washington and -isit Xew York later. I'rges Appropriations. After Lieutenant Governor O'Hara had urged President Wilson to call a conference of governors and representa tives or various state vice commissions. Senator Juul urgec an appropriation by congress for homes for girls in six or seven great industrial centers, where women, traveling from state to state, could be cared for while seeking em ployment. The government takes excellent care of every pound of tobacco that is shipped from Kentucky," said Senator Juul, "and it keeps a careful watch over every pound of butterine. Surely it can devote more money and attention to the American girl who is forced to travel in search of employment." Senators Juul and Peall outlined to the president briefly some of the revela tions of the Illinois commission inves tigation in that state. "If we were but to begin to outline all the conditions we found." said Sen ator Juul. "they would, iir. President, be almost unbelievable. Much of the testimony we secured is absolutely un printable. The conditions are such as to demand national investigation and the states need the government back of this movement to remedy them." The lieutenant governor urged par ticularly that the national conference be called either this summer or in the fall, at which remedial legislation could be discussed and planned. He stated that the governors of 32 states already had agreed to Join in the movement. President Wilson thanked the commis sion for their presentation of the sub ject. "I do not believe I can grasp the full gravity of the situation from this brief outline," said the president. 'But if you will leave me your recommenda tion and record of your investigation, I can assure you will give the flatter serious attention. Damages to Property Will Ron Into the Millions. ARE NOT SOCIALISTS. 3Ir. and Mrs. Bostle Resent Partisan Politics in Election. Through the columns of your paper we wish to denounce as false and malicious the article appearing in print Friday, March 21. "Socialist in the field." This is the first we ever heard of any such a ticket and am surprised that anv set of men or women would be so foolish try bring politics into ie city election. We wish it distinctly understood that we are not Socialists. Signed. J. A. BOS TIC. MARGARET BOSTIC. Damage In Michigan. Detroit, Mich., March 22. Although yesterday's tornado had abated in Michigan today it was thought wire traffic could not be restored through out the state before Monday. Two more deaths were today added to the list of Michigan fatalities, making three in all due to the storm. Two men were drowned in the St. Clair flats when their duck boat capsized during the storm.

Washington, March 22. Under rush orders from Secretary Garrison, a medical officer and three members of the army hospital corps are pro ceeding from Fort Oglethorpe, Ga. to Lower Peaehtree, Ala., the town vir tually wiped off the map by Thurs day's and Friday's tornado. The ac tion was taken after an appeal for help was received by President .Wil son. The American Red Croes today no tified the governor of Alabama that i it would give all the aid possible to j the sufferers In the stricken district. The Red Cross agent at Birmingham was asked to make a report on the extent of the disaster to the depart ment of justice. Damage Was Great. Chicago, March 22. So severe was the effect of the sleet storm yesterday on telegraph and telephone wires that it will be several weeks Detore tne damage has been repaired complete ly. There was some improvement to day, but. at best, telegraphic service was feeble and liable to interruption. Some curious routingg of messages were made necessary by the prostra tion of the wires. It is only 85 miles from Chicago to Milwaukee, but press telegrams from Chicago went to Pitts burg and around on a leased wire through Columbus, O., Cincinnati, Omaha, Kansas City and Minneap olis to Milwaukee. The Associated Press leased wire to Peoria was rout ed via Pittsburg and St. Louis. It is estimated the damage done to wires will aggregate $2,000,000, the heaviest loss which the telegraph and telephone companies have suffered from storms in the last five years-Twenty-Seven Are Dead. Mobile, Ala., March 22. Twenty seven persons are dead and thirty two injured, some so seriously that they are expected to die, as a result of the cyclone which swept Lower Peach Tree. Ala., yesterday, accord ing to a special dispatch to the Reg ister from Pine Hill, Ala. Seventeen of the dead are white persons. The property loss will amount to $150,000. Indiana Recovering. Indianapolis, March 22. Indiana be gan to recover today from its wind storm which did damage estimated at a million dollars, cost two lives, in jured a number of persons and para lyzed wire communication throughout the state. Large gangs of linemen, sent out by the telegraph and telephone companies had communication partially restored to many places today, but the wires were shaky in several instan ces. Warmer weather today lessened the suffering among many families whose homes had been partially wrecked by the storm. Warmer weather is also predicted for tomorrow. Although a number of persons were reported fatally hurt yesterday no more deaths had been reported today. Deatli List Grows. More than 60 persons are reported killed and hundreds were injured, some mortally by a storm of tornado In tensity which raged over central, west ern, southern and parts of eastern states yesterday. Property damage will run well into the millions. ; Definite information has been receiv ed accountng for more than 40 persons dead, with reports from points tem porarily cutoff from wire communica- j tion by the storm adding hourly to the Use Reports from Alabama show the loss I of life was heaviest in that state, the number of dead there being already ! definitely place at 28. with additional nuiiiura reiwneu out not confirmed. The town of Lower Peach Tree, was practically wiped out. Two are dead in Indiana; two in Tennessee; three in Ohio; two in Xew York; one in Michi gan, and two in Louisville. Accompanying the death lists are es timates of injured totalling more than a hundred, with additions mmin, i at brief intervals. Coming up out of the southwest early Friday morning Just as spring ushered in. the storm swept with startling suddenness diagonallv across me country rrom nothern Texas to the county from northern Texas to' oisecung me Mississippi valley and moving northwestward across the Ohio into the Great Lakes region. Shifting winds of great violence, accompanied in various aeftinn. hu snow, sleet and hail, characterized the . iurm. easuy me most destructive of the year and rarely equaled in the ex tent of its scope and damage. Build ings toppled before the blow in ne.i-Hr a dozen states and death lay in its: Immense Property Loss. The property loss was great all along the storm's track. Besides de molishing or unroofing buildings and felling trees, the high winds, rain, hail and sleet did serious damage to early crops, according to reports. Estimates of damage to property from Indiana and Michigan alone aggregate $2,000. 000, about evenly divided. Early re ports of loss ranging from $25,000 to $500,000 or more from sections of the storm region indicated that the total would reach large figures. Wires fell in all directions. Xot in many years has there been such a prostration of telegraph and telephone j service, unicago was cut off for hours from communication from points east. By devious routes connection finally was established. It will be a week before normal service is restored. Railroad traffic was seriously delayed in many districts where wire com munication was crippled and washouts occurred. The wind which wiped out so much property and cost so many lives at tained a record velocity at some points. At Detroit it reached 88 miles an hoar, a new high record in that city; 84 miles at Toledo; 8 8 miles at Buf falo; Memphis, ,64 miles, and Louis ville. 52 miles. Cold weather is trailing the destruc tive blow. The storm seems to have spent its force and to be taking the I would like Joryouto read this ad. showing my qualifications for the office of Commission erof Paths and Public Property : Si".' "!-,..

College I In asking you for this responsible job I -feel, as you undoubtedly do, that I should tell you something in regard to myself, that you may judge as to my qualifications. I am 28 years old and have been a residence of Topeka over 12 years. At the age of 16 I started to work in a plumbing shop in the summertime and go to school during the winter. I spent three years at the Kansas State Agricultural Since leaving school I have been working as a During my time at the Kansas State Agricultural took mechanical engineering and this mechanical engineering course I feel has well qualifed me to fill the office of Commissioner .of Parks and Public Property of my home city. I see much that should be done around our public buildings that can only be detected by an experienced mechanic. The repairing, plnmbing and keeping up of the property of this city is an important work, which may save or lose the city thousands of dollars and the man who. looks after this work should be a practical man, one who knows how to do the work and when it is properly done, and many, many times little things can be done by a mechanic who is looking after this work himself, without calling in the plumber, the carpenter or the electrican, and thus save the city many dollars, I would look after and keep up the property of this city as I would my own. In regard to the parks of the city, like everyone else, I believe the more park3 we have the better. I believe the people of one district are entitled to the same park privileges as' those of another. I believe the money available for park purposes should be equally divided between the parks, and in this way the attractiveness and healthfulness of all our parks be advanced as rapidly as possible. I do not beliove in turning our parks over to improperly conducted entertainment attractions for ther profit, but believe in their use for public gatherings and attractions that will make the lives of our people better and more enjoyable. I have made a study of the duties of the office and believe that I can give you better service than you have received in the past. I am a young man, full of ambition and realize that my future will depend upon my conduct of this office, and I assure you -that I will work night and day to make you feel proud of the fact that you were instrumental in placing me in this position of trust and confidence. I would be glad at any time to meet you personally and talk this matter over, if you will drop me a line or call me up over the telephone. I want to be be honest with you and a frank expression in regard to my candidacy will be appreciated. I trust that I may have your support at the primaries and also at the general election. W. L.
