Many Are Destroyed
By Associated Press•
Key WeK. Fla., Sept. 11. With
daylight to-day the people of Key
West and surrounding territory were
able for the first time to survey the
destruction wrought by the hurri
cane that swept through here Tues
day night. Not a nouse in the city
had escaped damage and many
were totally wrecked. The harbor
presented a tangled mass of fishing
vessels and other small craft, but
latest reports failed to show deaths
other than those on the dredge
Campus.
Of the 14 men on this craft ten
were resued last night, one body was
recovered and three are missing. The
British tanker Tonawanda, which
had to be scuttled to save the liner
Comal after that vessel had broken
her moorings and gone aground, was
reported not in a bad position. The
steamer St. Gougal also broke loose.
No vessels had left port early to
day, nor had any trains come in
over the Florida east coast railway,
in addition to the temporary stop
page of gas and electricity, the tele
phone service was suspended and
newspapers were forced to suspend
publication.

STATE REFUSES TO
ACCEPT DELAYS IN
BUILDING VIADUCT
Memorial Bridge Plans to Be Pushed
Ahead With All Possible Speed By
Public Service Commission
COST OF BIG STRUCTURE TO
BE APPORTIONED IN FUTURE
Public Service Commissioner John
S. Hilling-, who sat to-day to hear
the application of the Board of Pub
lic Grounds and Buildings for a
certilicate of convenience for the
Commonwealth to build the Mem
orial bridge in the Capitol Park ex
tension system, stated at the con
clusion of the hearing that he would
recommend immediate action by the
Commission at its meeting Monday
and that the Pennsylvania Railroad
and other utility companies would
be given opportunity later to present
such requests for alterations in
plans as they deemed desirable. The
question of apportionment of costs
will await the opening of bids. Mr.
Rilling stated that the Board would
open bids on September 23 and that
prompt approval of plans was neces
sary. The proceeding was the lirst
wherein one branch of the State
Government asked approval of an
other for a State project. The prob
abilities are that the certificate will
be issued next week, sentiment at
the Capitol being against any delay
whatever in the undertaking.
Considering the immensity of the
proposition, the proceedings were
very brief and attracted little at
tention. The bridge will be one of
the most beautiful in the country
and of vast effect upon the future
emnellishment of the State Capitol,
being a component part of the Brun
ner comprehensive plans to make
this city the civic center of the Com
monwealth. Mr. Hilling's ruling that
the utilities could submit plans for
alterations later came as a result
of Pennsylvania Railroad officials'
contention that they desired more
time to study the problems, a posi
tion which surprised the State of
ficials inasmuch as there have been
several conferences on the subject.
Engineers Present
L. G- Krause, assistant engineer
of the Public Service Commission,
sat with Mr. Rilling and Engineer
J. E. Perring appeared for the Board
when William M. Hargest, deputy
Attorney General of the State, asked
the approval of the application on
behalf of the Board of Public
Grounds and Buildings. The city
was not represented, but William
Elmer, superintendent of the Phila
delphia Division, Horace Booz, cor
porate engineer, and others appeared
for the Pennsylvania; John T. Brady,
solicitor and Mr. Chambers, real
estate otficer, appeared for the Read
ing, and Frank B. Musser, president;
Charles L. Bailey, Jr., solicitor, and
others connected with the Harris
burg Railways were present together
with men interested in the bridge
from various standpoints. Mr.
Brady at once asked that the pro
ceedings as far as they related to
the Reading be dismissed as that
company does not own any property
under the bridge and Mr. Bailey
asked for a clearer understanding of
what was planned in regard to the
street railway, its relation to ap
proaches and other details of the
bridge.
Mr. Hargest called attention to
the fact that the proceeding had
been carried out as in the case of
every application although in this
instance the Commonwealth was the
applicant. He read service notice
on interested parties and said there
were no objections. He also said
that the State wanted action and that
when bids were received and total
cost could be estimated problems of
apportionment of costs could be
taken up, but that just now it was
desired most of all to go ahead.
The railroad and traction people
pointed out that in not objecting to
the plans they did not waive any
rights in regard to costs. Mr. Elmer
said that he could not see any ob
jection to approving plans if certain
details could be worked out later
and suggested approval up to the
railroad right of way. Mr. Booz
surprised the State officials by say
ing that the plans had only reached
his office a few days ago and that
there had not been opportunity for
extended study. He also suggested
some conference on the subject in
which other representatives of utili
ties joined, to which Mr. Hargest
said he saw no objection if the
matter was not delayed, remarking
that the Pennsylvania division en
gineers had been given plans and
that the negotiations between the
State and the company had gone a
long ways, even so far as to the sale
of strips of land to straighten lines,
location of piers, and the like.
Commissioner Rilling said that the
plans could be approved and details
taken up later, but was quite posi
tive against any delay. Changes, he
remarked, could be suggested and
conferences held later, but for him
self he would recommend action and
felt that the Commission was in
clined to approve the application
owing to the importance of the work
and the proximity of the time of
opening the bids.

GIRL'S DEATH
BRINGS TOLL TO
FOUR IN RIOTS
Young Woman Falls When
Troops Fire Into Bos
ton Mob
By Associated Press.
Boston, Sept. 11,—The death to
day of a young woman believed to
be Miss Margaret Walsh, brought
the number of last night's riot to
four. The young woman was shot
during the disturbance in the South
Boston district where State Guard
troops fired into a crowd. Two men
were killed at the same time.
Richard D. Reemts, a striking po
liceman, was shot and dangerously
wounded this morning. At the hos
pital he said he had been shot by
Police Sergeant John D. McDonald.
According to the sergeant the shot
was fired by Abraham Karp, a store
keeper In the South End, who ex
plained that he thought someone
was attempting to break into his
shop and going out to investigate
saw Reemts rushing toward him
and fired. Karp was arrested.
The authorities claim that Reemts
was one of two former officers who
held up two volunteer policemen
during the night and stripped them
of their guns, clubs and badges. Ar
thur D. Shea, a striking policeman,
and the alleged companion of
Reemts, was arrested charged with
robbery.
Score Wounded
The third day of the police strike
opened with a casualty list of four
persons killed and nearly a score,
including four women, injured as
a result of the activities of State
troops in policing the city last night.
The military forces, five thousand
in number, were under orders to
restore lawful conditions to the point
of using the ball ammunition with
which they were provided if neces
sary.
Success in quelling the rioting and
suppressing the looting of previous
hours marked their efforts to a large
degree, although there were several
serious riots. In these most casual
ties resulted. Show windows were
hroken in many places hut in only a
few was there looting, troops and
the skeleton police force of regulars
and volunteers being quick to teach
the seat of the disturbances.
Crowds filled the streets during
most of the night. They surged
through the business district with
accompanying disorders and along
the streets in South Boston, and in

OR NO TREATY,"
WILSON SAYS

tana Speech
WILL U. S. FILL PLEDGE?
Question Whether America
Will Keep Honor to Its
People and World
By Associated Press.
Billings, Sept. 11. Laying his
appeal for the Peace Treaty before
the people of Montana to-day, Presi
dent Wilson declared the question
of its ratification was a question
whether the United States would
fulfill its pledge to its people and
to the world.
There were two addresses on his
day's program, Mr. Wilson speaking
at the Billings Auditorium before
noon so that he could arrive in
Helena In time for a meeting at
night. He reached here from Bis
marck, N. D., only a short time be
fore the hour for his address.
Mr. Wilson said he had com>-
west "to consult" with the people
in the light of circumstances which
affected the whole world. Every
where, he declared, the human
heart beat the same and on both
sides of the ocean there was a sin
cere desire that there should be no
more war. .
It was a mistake therefore, the
President continued, to debate the
Peace Treaty as if it were an ordin
ary Treaty. It was not merely a
Treaty with Germany, he said, but
a Treaty effecting a settlement of
the affairs of the world.
"And It is this Treaty or no
Treaty," he added. "It is this
Treaty because there can be no
other."
"This settlement is the first inter
national settlement that is based up
on the happiness of the avciage peo
ple throughout the world. It is a
people's treaty, an! I venture the
prediction that it is not wise for
parliaments and congresses to at
tempt to alter it." It is a severe
treaty the President went on, but
justly so. Some of the men who
hart called it unduly harsh, he a Id
ed, were criticising the administra
tion a year ago because they thought
the United States would be tec easy
with Germany.
Pitiful Now
"They were pitiless then," he said;
"they are pitiful now."
The American dead in the war,
Mr. Wilson declared, hadfought not
for the redemption of America, but
for the redemption of the world.
It was one of the hardest of his
trials during the war, he said, to
be able merely to direct the policies
