Storm of Tornado Intensity Rases
Over the Central, Western
and Southern States.^
• With Wire Communication Down
Loss Cannot He l*roper!y Esti
mated—Towns W iped Out.
More than one hundred persona are
reported killed and hundreds were In
jured, some mortally by a storm of
tornado Intensity which raged over the
Central, Western and Southern and
parts of the Eastern states today. Prop
erty damage will run well Into the mil
Definite advices have been received
accounting for at least seventy per
sons dead, with reports from points
temporarily cut off from wire com
munication by the storm adding hour
ly to the list.
Reports from Alabama show the loss
of life was heaviest in that state, the
number of dead there being already
definitely placed at sixty, with addi
tional fatiHties reported, but not con
firmed Two towns, Thomasville and
Lower Peachtreet, were practically
wiped out. Two are dead In Indiana,
two In Tennessee, two In Ohio, two In
New York, one In Michigan and one
In Loulsana.
Accompanying the death list are es
timates of the injured totalling more
than 200, with additions coming in at
orlaf intervals.
Coming up out of the southwest
rarly Friday morning. Just as spring
was ushered in. the storm swept with
startling suddenness diagonally across
the country from northern Texas to
western Pennsylvania and New- York
bisecting the Mississippi Valley and
moving northeastward across the Ohio
into the Great Lake region.
Most Destructive of Year.
Shifting winds of great violence, ac
companied in various sections by
snow, sleet and hail, characterized the
storm, easily the most 'destructive of
the year and rarely equalled in the
extent of its sweep and damage.
Buildings toppled before the blow In
nearly a dozen states and death lay
ail along in its wake.
. The property loss was heavy all
along the storm's track. Besides de
molishing or unroofing buildings and
felling trees, the high winds, rain,
hall and sleet did serious damages to
early crops, according to reports from
some of the affected sections Esti
mates of damage to property In In
• dlana and Michigan alone aggregate
J2.<HI0.(K)0 evenly divided between the
two states. Early reports of losses|
ranging from *25.0bn to $500,000 or
more from sections of the storm region '
indicated that the total would reach!
arge figures.
YAre* Are Down.
Wires fell In sll directions before
the blow. Not In many years has
there been such prostration of tele
graph and telephone service Chicago
was cut off for hours from communi
cation with points east. Only by de
vious routes was connection finally es
tablished. Last nlgbt conditions had
improved materially, but It will be sev
eral days before normal service is res
tored. Hailroad traffic was seriously
delayed In many districts, where wire
communication was crippled and wash
outs occurred.
The wind, which wiped out so much
property and cost so many lives at
tained record velocities at some points.
Figures given by the weather bureau
In Washington showed that at lietrolt

CHARLESTON. \V. Va.. March 21
—Governor Hatfield to day gave oul
his first observations on the trouble
In the coal fields He takes tho view
that peace now is better than punish
ment of past offenders. “I am thor
oughly convinced of the necessity oi
military rule,' he said, "but am anx
ious for the time when peace, law and
order can be said to exist In the Cabin
Creek district.” He does not Indicata
an early withdrawal of the tnxfbs, but
expresses a desire to be lenient with
those who show a willingness to re
turn to walks of peace. The Governor
"The courts have recognized and
sustained authority in the chief execu
tlve in time of war, insurrection or re.
hellion to exercise military rule in the
theater of actual war. Authority in
the Governor to proclaim a state of
war in any city, district or county of
this State in the event of an Insurrec
tion or rebellion has also been recog
nized by the courts, together with
power to punish offenders in the dis
trict covered by the proclamation of
war. by means of the findings and
sentences of military commissions,
and to arrest and detain, pending th«
suppression of the insurrection, all
persons who. in the opinion of the
executive, are In any manner aiding
or abetting the same.
Peace Must Reign.
“As Governor of the State, i am
now trying to cope with the exigen
cies of an Insurrection, in view of
which nty predecessor In office de
clared the existence of a state of war
in certain portions of Kanawha and
other counties; and to that end the ac
kuowledged powers of which I have
spoken are hi my hands and will be

the accomplishment of the purpose
just stated, which is indispensable to
the supremacy of the law and preser

Clark and Other Congressmen Call
On Attorney General In Davis'
I Behalf—Get Encouragement.
_ XntsUlgsncer Bureau.
Washington, X>. C.. March 21.
Representative John W. navis, of
West Virginia, to-day received a boost
caused by the resignation of Jxidgo
Goff, of West Virginia. Speaker
Ch^mp Clark and a half dozen Con
gressmen called on Attorney General
McReynolds and formally urged the
selection of Representative Davis.
This is the first time Mr. Davis’ claim
has been formally presented to the De
partment of Justice.
The Davis forces were delighted
with their Interview. One of them
stated afterwards that Attorney Gen
eral McReynolds casually remarked
that Representative Davis may be tin
man. after all. Mr. Davis easily
;comes witlrin the age limit, being onlv
■ about 4.1 jear* of age. and he hns no
corporation clientele, which Attorney
; General McReynolds said a few day*
ago would be a bar against any apple

flow the Des Moines Charter Works
If ths Pauli LaPlam charter is modeled after the charter of any
one city more than another, it is after that of Des Moines. lows. Des
Moines has been held up as the model commission city, yet the com
mission form of government has been In effective operation in Dm
Moines only-about three years, and already loud protests against It
are going up from many citizens.
P. H. Ryan, a prominent attorney of Des Moines, has gone to the
trouble of writing a book descriptive of the Des Moines plan and tho
evils that have arisen under it Here la what Mr. Ryan tells of how
tho commission form of government operated in one particular in Des
"To Illustrate how this theory of selecting beads of departments
vas a corporation would do, when put into operation. Des Moines elected '
a commissioner with the understanding that he was to be placed at
the head of the department of public safety. The place was assigned
him. as expected, but recently, because the head of another depart
ment desired to shift him about, presented a resolution for that par
pose one morning at a meeting of the council when but three members
were present, the one sought to be changed being absent, with the re
sult that when he arrived at bis office he found himself In the predica
ment of a certain general with a title but no army to command. Things
were patched up by the deposed superintendent being placed at tho
head of streets and public Improvements, and the commissioner caus
ing the change pulled on the shoes left vacant In the department of
public safety.
"Beauties of the commission plan of government were very pro
nounced for a while thereafter. The commissioner changed to the de
partment of public safety Immediately commenced to make changes In
clerical help and police officers from chief down. The one transferred
to streets and public improvements followed suit, reinstating in hla
department those deposed from the other, and vice versa; no heed
given to civil service rules, the whole performance. If not a game of
politics, a very poor example of efficiency In public affairs But such
might be expected under this style of government. Instead of tho man
agement of affairs of the city being carried on in the manner a board
of directors would do for a corporation, the conduct transpiring and !
permitted by this form of government, as has well been said, "puts us
to shame at home and abroad."
