after reducing to a smouldering
mass of wreckage an area more
than a mile in length and from
seven to ten blocks wide in the

accurate statement of the mone
tary loss cannot be made at this
time, but it is roughly estimated
as ten million dollars.

were no fatalities, and the few
that were hurt suffered only
minor iujuries, but 2,000 persons
or more were rendered home
Among the buildings destroy

Washington, Sept. 5.-Senator giv
Smith, of South Carolina, failed Als
in the Democratic caucus today LA
to modify the proposed tax on evt
cotton futures, the caucus refus- pra
ing to reconsider its action ap- like
proving the amendment proposed 00
by Senator Clark of Arkansas,

The amendment as it stands
places a tax of one-tenth of one
cent a pound on all cotton sold
for future delivery, the tax to be
refunded when deliveries actu

The announcement in New thi
York was the signal for an out
burst of selling orders in the
cotton market such as rarely has
been witnessed since the Sully
days. It drove prices off fully

moralized the upward movement.

pressed the belief that if the 22
Clarke amendment should be
come a law without considerable
modification it would practically ca
eliminate futures trading on the pl
cotton exchanges of this country. L,
