HARRISONBURG IS !
IN GRjPOF FLOOD Town of 500 Covered With Water—Gap Is 2500 Feet Wide Vidalia, La., April 30.—Flood waters from the crevasse near Gibson’s landing has covered Harrisonburg, a town of 500 inhabitants, but the rise is slow. The gap is now 2500 feet wide, according to a re port by Capt. C. O. Sherrill, United Stated engineer, who inspected the break today. Government tugs, barges and the New Orleans and Northwestern railroad took hundreds of refugees to Natchez today. The United Sl\tes tugs Marengo and Tunica alone transported 750 persons and 1500 head of stock. The water is encroaching upon the rich plantations on the river front, but is not in sight from Vidalia or the Natchez bluffs. There is an open stretch back of Vidalia up grade, so that the water can be seen approaching the town. Tho Associated Charities Is attempting to care for the Hood sufferers, but it?4 funds are limited. .Many homes have been opened to tho sufferers and„JJie hotels have reduced their rates, one offering half rates. The low stage of the. Red river offers consolation, as this will enable the water to run off more rapidly, relieving the parishes of Tensas and Catahoula. At Kemps Rend, the water lighters are watching night and day and the slightest slough is attacked without delay. Levee Repaired Vicksburg, Miss., April 30.—The main river levee at Greenville has been re paired, according to reports received to night by Major Woodruff, engineer in charge of the third Mississippi river dis trict and there is now no danger there. Major Woodruff was well satisfied w ith the conditions of the levees. Captain Bankhead and Major Bister inspected Camp Hayes, the refugee camp here, this afternoon and Major Lister said the sanitary conditions were very good. There are now' fibout 50,000 refugees re ceiving rations supplied from Vicksburg. The Yazoo and Mississippi Valley rail road continues to operate trains south of here, and it is now' believed there will he less delay as a steady fall is expected in the hack water south of here from now on. LETTERS TO EDITOR Selfishness To the Editor of The Age-Herald. Man Is ungrateful and supremely sel fish. A hog will eat the acorns that fall to the ground an.I never look up at the tree that boars them, and man will sit down at a table covered with good and abundant food and never think of him who sent the rain to nourish and keep) alive the earth that produces it. I have] known a few' people who were so un- j grateful as to smite the hand that had fed them. One-half of the world Is so selfish that they have hut little idea of the pleasures, joys and the comforts that are within our reach. Who desires the companionship of a supremely selfish man and one who lives in bitterness and strife—everybody doing wrong except himself? I have about as much patience with such a character as this as T have with a theosophist who is Always talking his system of philosophy which professes to investigate the unexplained laws of the powers of man over nature, and the direct knowledge of God. But of all men to be shunned is the tyrant, the slanderer, and the envious. Turn ft way from them as you would from a hungry wolf. Suppose we all try to live decent and respectable lives—I think we would have more respect for ourselves and such a life would bring us more friends. J. LAWLER DARBY. Birmingham, April an, 1913.

SUFFRAGETTES MIX IN PEACE CELEBRATIONS ■ _____ URGE AMERICANS AGAINST THE BRITISH DELEGATION TO THE. UNITED STATES FOR CELE BRATION OF ANGLO-AMERI CAN PEACE London, April 30.—The British dcle tation now on Its way to the United Slates for the celebration of the Anglo \merlcan peace centenary, may eneoun er some hostile demonstrations. Certain aders of the extreme Irish, and labor movements are advising their American friends to express opposition to the Brit ish mission. Suffragette leaders are an nealing to American women to denounce iny friendly dealings between the two munlries until England gives the vote to women. Opponents of the peace mission predict, that its public appearance will provoke outbreaks such as occurred at the peace meeting at Carnegie hall in December, 1911, In support of the ratification of the arbitration treaties pending between the United States. Great Britain and France. Because Lord Weardale and other mem bers of the delegation are connected with :he Carnegie peace foundation the laborltes call it. “tii-c Carnegie mission.'’ English labor unions will hold meetings, as is their custom, in Hyde park tomor row. ftepresentatives of the German unions will parade with for the first time and both English and German speak ers intend to denounce, “the Carnegie mission.’’ Their ground is that the mis sion is designed to foster an Anglo-Amer ican alliance and alienate American sym pathies from Germany, whereas, they argue, workers of alt nationalities should stand together for their own interests. Benjamin Tillett, secretary of the Dock, Wharf Riverside and General Workers’ union of Groat Britain and Ireland, will send a cablegram to Samuel Clomp ers. president of the American Federation of l^abor, asking him to oppose the British delegation. “General,’’ Mrs. Flora Drummond, one of the leaders of the Militant suffragettes, who was arrested today, succeeded to day. succeeded tonight in smuggling out of the jail to a friend a message for the American suffragettes. This message which later was cabled to the women’s suffragette union of New York, was as follow*. “Carnegie’s so-called peace delegates are nearing your shores.- None of them has raised a voice against the torture of women in English prisons. The tory members of parliament among them won their seats on a sink-the-German-navy policy. They have all. voted against home rule. Suffragettes, Irishmen and Germans organize a national boycott against these war provokers.” Miss Scott-Tory, the San Francisco suf fragette, sent a cablegram to Senator O’Gorman at Washington, saying: “If the Senate will investigate Car negie's peace fund they may find an olive branch wrapped around a sword. We hope that Die Senate will not attend these functions given in honor of the peace delegates who dictate to Americans that they must rewrite their history to" save English feelings and sully the fair name of George Washington.” year and have marked with much pleas- f ure and comfort your friendship for inter ests that are not altogether material. Faithfully yours, JAMES M. SHELBURNE. Birmingham, Afh’il 30, 1913. Fraudulent Solicitors To the Editor of The Age-TIerald. f must again request the favor of your space to warn the public against fraudu lent appeals. A woman, calling herself Mrs. Walker, has been canvassing in East Birmingham in aid of a tuberculosis family. Two men have been trying to get subscriptions on the Southskle for tuberculous babies. Two men. claiming to represent a reli gious organization, have been soliciting aid for a similar purpose. None of these people have been authorized by this asso ciation. Jt is safe to say that no funds entrusted to such persons will reach the needy and deserving. Prompt information leading to the arrest of such solicitors will be esteemed a favor by this association. GEORGE EAVES. Secretary. Birmingham, April 30, 1913. STIRRING INCIDENT IN TARIFF DEBATE AS MANN ATTACKS LEADER UNDERWOOD (Continued From Page One) limans committee, however, had ready and carried a number of its own amendments, all of a minor character and designed to perfect classifications. Tlie iron and steel schedule was the | particular largest of attack of Repre sentative Palmer of Pennsylvania, in charge of that schedule for the ways and means committee was frequently remind ed from the rciullilican side of the fact that the Hethleliem Steel company was in his district. Representative Mann of Illinois, the republican leader and others charged that the duty on ferro maganese was distinctly in the interest of the Uni ted States Steel corporation, and that the enhancement of the value of ferro manganese in this country under the pro posed advance in rate, should he suf ficient to warrant the Pennsylvania mem ber's indefinite continuance in Congress. Sooner the Better Mr. Mann declared, however, that while lie thought the pending bill would be very injurious to tlie country, he did not believe in "prolonging the agony" un necessarily and suggested "that as we are to have the passage in the present form the sooner tlie better." 1 Personalities were indulged in several times during the day, particularly during tlie discussion of tlie i nited States Steel corporation holdings in the Minnesota mines when Representatives Stanley of Kentucky and Miller of Minnesota, en gaged in a bitter exchange. Representa tive i nderwood also replied vigorously to statements by Mr. Stanley concerning Alabama iron and steel companies. Representative Austin of Tennessee, re publican. said Charles M. Schwab had succeeded in getting free iron ore after trying unsuccessfully to get, it from re publican ways and ways committee?. When Rcnrosentative A. F. Kreider, a republican member from Pennsylvania, offered an amendment tonight to put hooks and eyes used in shoe manufac ture on tlie free list, he aroused criti cism from Representative A. -Mitchell Palmer, who declared Mr. Kreider was a "shoe manufacturer, tlie president of tlie American Manufacturers’ associa tion. whose amendment will put money Into Ills own pocket." Minority Leader Mann replied that If members were to be thus criticised congressmen from the larms would be prohibited from discussing rates on tlie agricultural schedule. Mr. Mann also referred to tlie fact that Majority Lead er Underwood, author of the tariff bill, was engaged in tlie iron and steel busi ness. lie said that Mr. Underwood need not apoligize to tlie House for that nor to explain it, that be meant no re lied ion thereby; but Mr. Underwood an swered with a vigorous statement. “If I could not represent my con stituency and at tlie same time the people of the United States without involving myself as a special pleader for interests in my district I would be unworthy of my position in this House. "I contend that when representatives j of the people stand In this House ex ercising the power to tax people of this country, that it Is at least unbecoming for them to display a selfish interest In these matters. The time has passed when the laws of this country will bo written for speC'al interests; when men can come and ask for legislation to convert dollars from the pockets of the masses into their own that they may grow rich." The committee completed considera tion of the metal schedule after many amendments had been offered and re acted. Representative Austin of Ten nessee failed 111 an effort to restore tlie Payne rate on aluminum 7 cents per pound. He argued that tlie Underwood rate of 20 per cent would deprive Amer ican labor of more than $1,000,000 In four years. Representative Palmer, de claring that tiie American Aluminum company had a monopoly in tills country and in France insisted that if rate in ithe bill was justified was tlie alumi num rate. I _ Losses to Planters New Orleans, April 30.—The cotton schedule of the democratic tariff revision bill now pending in Congress will result in heavy financial losses to the cotton planters and cotton manufacturers, ac cording to the statement made by repre sentatives of these Interests today at a special hearing being conducted here by a committee representing the National Farmers’ union. J. D. Brown, member of a spot cotton firm of New Orleans, stated that the pending bill already had resulted in a decline of nearly $5 a bale in the price of raw cotton, representing a loss of mil lions of dollars to the planters. Sigmund Odenlieimer, president of the Lane Cotton mills, who yesterday told the committee that the American mills [ could not possibly compete with the Kng j lish mills in the manufacture of the finer grades of cotton goods, was recalled to clay. He gave further detailed Informa tion regarding the bad effect which he claimed the passage of the Underwood bill* will have upon the cotton Industry. He declared that if this schedule is adopt ed in its present form It will result in serious loss to the mills of the United States, many of which, he said, were not now paying profitable dividends. GIVE BL1ND TIGERS SOLAR PLEXUS BLOW Talladega Cave Contains Stalactites and Stalagmites—Other News Items - o Talladega, April 30.- ..Special.)—Blind tigers have received a solar plexus blow In this county, owing to the invariable action of the city court judge in handing out a flue of $200 and six months hard labor for the violation of the prohibition statutes. The recorder's court has fol lowed the plan of the city court by in flicting k labor sentence for each infrac tion of the law. A cave filled with stalactites and stalag mites of pure onyx has been discovered in this county, near Alpine. For many years this cave was made the objective point for jaunts and picnics by the neigh boring young people, who danced and frolicked in its shadows without the least thought of the immense wealth that was around them. A bright woman made the discovery, and the fact leaked out by a recent transaction in real estate. The cave was owned by some colored people, who had occupied it for 20 years, or rather had cultivated the land around it. Polished specimens of the onyx show* lines of beauty equal to the finest Mexican product. TURNS A STORM TO PROFIT Hereafter Omaha Houses Must Be Better Built From the Kansas City Star. The greater part of the damage done to frame houses in Omaha by the recent tornado would not have occurred if the houses had been properly built with “wind braces,’’ was the assertion made here to day by John W. Towle, head of the relief committee in Omaha, which is re pairing and putting back on their foun dations the houses moved by tlie. storm. Mr. Towle Is president of a large struc tural iron work's in Omaha and is a prac tical house builder, and as head of the rebuilding end of the relief work has had a fine opportunity to study the effect of the wind on frame houses. “We find that at least one-half of all the frame houses wrecked by the storm would have been saved if just a little more money had been used In building them by putting in cross studding,” Mr. Towle said. “The houses that were wrecked were mostly built in that ordi nary slipshod way of placing the stud ding straight up and down without cross braces. Such houses offered no resist ance to the wind. They went down like so many pastboard boxes. But we found that where studding had been put in at an angle of 46 degrees, bracing the houses to withstand the pushing force of tfie wind, the houses w’ere moved off their foundations—in some cases being carried distances of two and throe blocks —and yet they stood up, and with a lit tle repairing and bracing they are ready to be moved back again upon their foun dations. “Hundreds of houses that were wrecked would have withstood the wind if their builders had spent from $25 to $60 more in cross-bracing the studding In each one. “Having been taught this lesson by the storm the people of Omaha will have a new buildings code by which frame houses will be required to he cross-braced. “I see you arc agitating the same sort of a building code In this city. It is a good thing and it should meet with no opposition, because Kansas City is just as likely to have a tornado as any other city. It is wise for Kansas City to profit by the lesson that has been taught Oma ha, and to require buildings to be braced to withstand the wind.” The Christ and the Courts From the Kansas City Journal. A Chicago justice of the peace gets into the limelight with tTie declaration that he intends to run his court as Christ would run It If He were presiding. This is specially pertinent, perhaps, in view of the fact that the late William T. Stead wrote a remarkable book called “If Christ Came to Chicago.” But a much more sig nificant issue is involved than that con cerning itself with any patricular locality, A New York justice has adopted the Chicago suggestion and lias written to Mayor Gtetynor a request for the latter's opinion ns to how Jesus Christ would have acted if placed on the bench. Mayor Gay nor very convincing ly replied that Christ stood for the enforcement of law, for patriotism and obi Jlence to all just authority, and that every law enforcer should abide by the provisions of the law as it came to him, without seeking to read into it liis own conception of Christ's attitude or probable policy. It may be remarked that Christ is not needed on the bench nearly so urgently as He is needed in the halls of legisla tion. If the underlying principles of Christian civilization were always embod ied In the laws enacted there would be little reason for decrying the interpreta tion of law by the courts. The best and only desirable policy for any judge, high or low in rank, is to decide cases as an Intelligent and law-abiding citizen of thf twentieth century, leaving for those re sponsible for inequitable legislation the burden of blame. The mischief is done far oftener in the city councils, the state legislatures and the halls of Congress than in the judicial tribunals. The real ! need is for putting Christ into the stat ! ute books, rather than into the records | of decisions handed down. Get Christ into the city halls and into the capitole of state and nation, and not even a no toriety seeking justice of the peace will wonder what Christ would do if Ho were i on tho bench.
