* FORT WORTH. Tex., July 5.— A tor
nado, which struck Texas in the upper
edge of Montague County, coming from
tlie northeast and swinging far to the
eoutheast this afternoon, caused the
loss, it is believed, of sixty lives, in
jured v. large number of people and did
untold damage to growing crops and
cattle.
Fortunately the tornado missed the
small towns in the section through
\u25a0which it swept, but It zigzagged in
such a. way as to take in the homes of
many farmers and stock raisers in the
-•"oijpn. - , - ....... - „--.-
At JJigksboro fue force of -the * wind
was terrlnc. -"The Baptist church and"
twenty other buildings were blown off
taeir foundations and a number of
buildings totally destroyed.
Mrs. Travis Calhoun was seriously in
jured. Travis Calhoun. Mrs. Thomas
Horton and Henry Wesser and family
were also injured.
At Montague no lives were lost in the
town, but in the country great loss of
life is reported. The wires are down in
all directions and It Is difficult to get
particulars. Ten persons are known to
be dead In the neighborhood of Mon
tague. Most of the killed lived on Salt
Creek, along which the tornado swept
with special force.
At Nocona the tornado passed a few
miles to the south, where •it killed four
teen persons. A reliable man at Nocona,
who has been over the scene, saya that
reports were being received of the dead
when he left there and he places the
loss of life at sixty.
Owing to the widely separated homes
and the fact that in many instances whole
families were wiped out details and
names are difficult to secure.

Special IMspatch to Th« . Call.
ASBURV PARK, X. J., July 5. San
Francisco wins the honor of entertnln
lukt the "schoolntariuV* inrtJ occasional
\u25a0cholmasters next year. Her delegates
came like Hie Greeks, brnrlns kIKs,
such as tlie Golden Gate knows hovr to
offer, and the trustees irer« overcome.
The claims of Chicago, Atlanta, St.
Louis, Denver and Minneapolis were
sidetracked.
The. chairman of the California dele
gation,. Professor "Alexander '.Holmes
McQanald, . offered everything- the com
mittee demanded .and anything:; else It
could- think^uif.bttwlxt; this-, andinext
June/" He <-brought 'along «"a? carload' of
gorgeous silken yeilow > poppies,. the
State's , floral i emblem, which -Mrs/iMc-
Donald pinned. upon the, breasts of all
the women and stuck In the coats of
all the men. There are apparent to the
eye no delegates save those from the
Occident, a master stroke of diplomacy.
While these floral seductions were be-
In? resorted to. Professor W. H. Lang
don. City Superintendent of Schools of
San Francisco, concluded his heavy ar
guments and California won.
Electioneering was resumed v to-day.
"When Dr. Thompson,, president of the
University of Ohio, arrived In Ashbury
Park this morning he read in the news
papers that Professor Charles D. Mclvbr
of Greensborough,'N..a, had him beaten
for president of the association. He
straightway withdrew from the race, but
requested all his friends to support
Nathan' C. Shaefer of Harrlsburg, Pa,,
the vice president of the national council.
Tuesday at midnight Professor Mclvor
had pledged a, majority, of the directors.
Nothing daunted, the friends of Thomp
son and Shaefer set to work this morning
to undermine Mclvor and for a time it
looked sultry for the South, which for
twenty years has not been honored by the
presidency of the association. As night
drew on, the Mclvor forces announced
confidently that their man had retained
substantially his majority. .*
Never within the history of the associ
ation has practical politics played so
prominent a part as at this convention.
It is the West against the South. The
North and East are out of the running.
Uy many the fact that San Francisco
won the next convention is regarded as
an additional " reason' for Professor Mc-
Ivor's victory. Professor James .W.
Crabtree of Peru, Neb., declined this
afternoon to accept the treasureshlp for
another term and Dr.. John N. Wilkin
son of Emporla, Karis., was slated for
his place. The re-election of Professor
R. Irwln Shepard of Wlnona, Minn., to
the secretaryship Is assured, there being
no competitor - for the office.
