REIGN OF TERROR IN MEXICO BORDER rContinued from First Page] of at least five persons and consid erable property loss by fire last night in several cities of the Imperial Valley, covering several hundred square miles, were received here to-day_. Telephone and telegraphic communication was interrupted and information from the stricken district is meager. The greatest damage was at Calex ico, on the Mexican border line, where the loss of life occurred. Early reports from there stated that the town had been destroyed by fire, but telephonic employes at El Centro who talked over a wire reported that the fires were confined to three build ings. Many buildings in Calexlco were shaken down. The operators in the telephone building fled after the first shock, which occurred at 7.30 p. m., and was followed by two others, at 8.40 p. m. and 9.20 p. m. Two shocks were reported from Yuma, Ariz., at the same time and San Diego and San Bernardino also were visited by two slight shocks. Heber, a railroad town five miles west of El Centro, was reported de stroyed by fire. At Imperial several buildings were cracked and the wall of one fell in, but no injuries resulted. The telephone operators there also fled from their building. In El Centro the motion picture the aters were emptied in a moment, men, women and children filling the streets while the earth was still in motion. The first shock came at 8.05. It was slow and prolonged. A moment later came a short and sharp tremble. An ensuing explosion in the warehouse of the Delta Mercantile Company lighted the entire countryside. A two-story structure caved into a drug store filled with people. All raced to the street. Every building was disgorging similarly. In the residence districts cupboards and all movable furniture was tumbled about. Slight trembles continued most of the night. In Mexicali a panic prevailed. Gam blers and the women who make up a considerable portion of the population of the place rushed into the streets. Piles of gold were left on gambling tables to be rocked off and mixed up with the debris of the buildings. El Centro. Cal., June 23.—Late re ports indicate that Imperial Valley was rocked from end to end last rilght by a series of earthquake shocks. More than a score of persons are reported dead. Buildings in every city in the valley have been damaged. Calexico suffered severely from fire. Damage in the earthquake district is esti mated at more than $1,000,000. Five person sare reported dead in Mexicali. No dead are reported from the other valley points. Practically all the dead were said to be at Mexicali, the little adobe town consisting principally of saloons, gam bling halls and other resorts not per mitted on the American side that lies across the street from Calexlco. Of Volcanic Origin The seismic disturbances, It Is be lieved, originated somewhere in the old volcanoes of the Cocopah moun tains. the granite backbone of Lower California. To-day the cluster of little Cities in the Imperial Valley are partly in ruins. Buildings were rent asunder. The roar of the quake below the border was the first warning the people of the valley had. That was about 8 o'clock. The first shock was the most severe. Two others followed. After the first shock the stricken towns were in darkness excent for the light furnished by blazing "buildings. The greatest confusion reigned every where. Ranchers and city residents who had homes last night found them selves to-day in open fields beside roadways or irrigation ditches.

Miss King, who is to be married The us© of Front street, Steelton'a principal thoroughfare, as a speedway will be checked after Saturday, when Burgess Fred Wlgfleld will place a number of police officers on duty at frequent distances along the street with orders to arrest any traffic violators. Last year about this time many complaints were made of alleged reck less driving and other violations of the traffic regulations in this street, which is smoothly paved and makes an ideal place for a little auto racing. Inas much as the borough has no traffic or dinance, motorists fell into the habit of doing almost as they pleased, it was declared. A few weeks after his effort to ob tain from council a traffic ordinance had failed Burgess Wigfleld took things into his own hands, stationed officers along the street with orders to make arrests, and In a short time succeeded In making the street safe for pedestrians. During the winter, however, the traffic officers were removed and now complaints are beginning again to pour into the office of the burgess. As a result, after next Saturday officers again will be placed on traffic duty. Patrolman Jones will be stationed at Front and Mohn streets; Patrolman Trombino at Front and Pine; Patrol man Wynn, Front and Adams, and Patrolman Pearson at Front and Franklin. These officers will be on traffic duty during the evening hours, when the violations are said to be the most numerous. The burgess is also considering a plan to place two men on day duty instead of only one, as at present. This plan, however, has not been fully decided upon.

FIRE PLUG STREAM FLOODS OUT NEGRO ["Continued from First Page] from Patrolman Spangler a call was sent to the police station for aid. Rush Up Squad of Police Captain of Police Joseph P. Thomp son, with Sergeant Page and Patrol men Buch and Weisman and Chauffeur Demma. were rushed to the Fulton street house in the patrol. En route they met Patrolman Cope and took him along. When the police squad attempted to enter the Hager home a warning came from the window on the second floor to the officers to keep away. In the meantime Joe Demmy, the chauffeur, went to the second floor of the Blough building, opposite, and fired two shots into the room occupied by Hager. Hager answered with three shots. Then the suggestion was made to drown the fugitive out. Fire Chief Klndler, who happened to be In the crowd, went to the Good Will firehouse and ordered out the hose squad and combination hose and chemical appa ratus. Answers With a Shot Sergeant Page, with Patrolmen Buch and Weisman, took possession of the stairway leading to the front room barricaded by Hager. The other pa trolmen remained on the lower floor. Demma guarded the front door. One final request was made to Hager to surrender. The. answer was a shot from Hager's revolver through the room door, the bullet hitting the plas ter at the head of the stairway. Captain Thompson ordered the water turned on from the fire plug. The force of the stream closed the shut ters, but one of the slats in the shutter was broken, and through this opening the water poured into the room. The water was rapidly filling up the room, very little getting out under the crack of the door. Hager opened fire at the men with the hose stream, but the bullets hit the door. After a silence of three minutes Hager called out that ho was ready to give up. Break Open Door Then came the remark from Hager, "Good-by, everybody." It was repeat ed three times. Silence again followed and all the officers heard were three clicks as if an attempt was being made to fire a revolver. Sergeant Page called to the patrolmen to fol low him. remarking, "I guess his am munition is all gone; let's break open the door." with one push Sergeant Page broke open the door. Patrolman Buch was close on the sergeant's heels. Next came Patrolman Weisman. Hager made no resistance. "Come get me," he said. Sergeant Page and PatroJ man Buch placed the nippers on Ha gar and led him down stairs. Patrol man Weisman gathered up the ammu nition. On the bed was a pile of cartridges. Nearby was the revolver. Three empty cartridges were found in the mber, and the three cartridges that had missed fire. Empty shells were scattered over the floor. Threatens to Get Square While the other patrolmen kept back the mob, Hager was taken to the patrol, Patrolman Weisman guarding the rear. Enroute to the patrol Ha ger kept up a continuous threat to get square with his wife, calling her all sorts of names. When placed in the patrol he cooled down, and re marked, "I have nothing to be sorry for." To a Telegraph reporter who rode with Hager to the police sta tion the colored man told this story: "I was married to that woman four years ago. I work hard as a watch man and trackman for the Pennsyl vania railroad at Lucknow. I work at night. Because I told her to quit hav ing other men at my house, or get out, she took a disliking to me. For the past year my life has been a hell. Every morning I come home I find beer and whisky bottles all around my house, and my wife gone. She refused to come and get me my meals. Says Wife Tried to Poison Him "On several occasions when I took her to task for her habits she told me she would get square. She has put poison in my food and coffee a number of times, but it only made me sick. I told her that I would kill her if she did not keep men away from my house. Then she went to Alder man Landis and had me arrested for surety of the peace. This morning when I came home, it was the same old story. I came home and no break fast." Hager is a frail looking fellow. He was under the influence of liquor when arrested this morning. He denies us ing drugs. Mrs.Hager denied the charges made by her husband and said he was In sanely Jealous. In addition to the wife's charge, every officer who participated in the arrest of Hagor to-day will prefer a charge of felonious assault and bat tery with Intent to kill.
