J. w PER SH IN EARTHQUAKE THE MOST TERRIBLE DISASTER IX HISTORY OCCURS IN SOUTHERN ITALY. 0,000 REPORTED LOST At Messina 12,000 Perish in Earth quake and Tldul Wave Sing and Queen Go to Scene. Rome, Dec. '3 0. Between 90,000 and 100,0fl0 dead; Messina, on the Island of Sicily, and Regglo and a score of towns in Southern Italy overwhelmed; entire Calabrlan re gion laid waste that is the earth quake's record of Monday so far as at present known. Reports are com ing In elowly to Rome on account of the most complete destruction of lines of communication to the strick en places. The death total In Messina ranges from 12.000 to 50,000; that of Reg gio, which, with Us adjacent villages numbered 45,000, includes almost the entire population; at Pall, 1000 are reported dead; at Cassano, 1000; at Cosenzaa, 600, and half the pop ulation of Bagnara, about 4000. King and Queen to Aid. The King and Queen of Italy are now on their way to Messina, hav ing sailed Tuesday evening from Naples aboard the battleship Vittorio Emmanuele. The pope has shown the greatest distress at the calamity and he iiimself was the first to con tribute $200,000 to the relief of the afflicted. British, French and Rus sian warships are steaming towards the south and already several of the ships of Great Britain and Russia have performed heroic service in the work of rescue. It is feared that uiauy foreigners have been killed, as a number of ho tels at Messina and doubtless all other places were crowded with tour ists. Swept by Tldul Wave. Messina, whoBe tragic history has been marked by tidal waves and war, and which was the- center of Mon day's terrestial maelstrom, was shak en to ruins. Flashes burst forth to complete the city's destruction and to burn ulive untold numbers help lessly pinioned beneath fallen walls. The Strait of Messina was shaken and twisted by the earthquake's trembling, for mariners rennrf the channel altered beyond recognition. Practically three-fourths of the city was swept from the earth by a vast JCI VOJXIO 1 IVJLriO Christmas Shopping but just the time for. Chance for a BARGAIN FUNK & CO. tidal wave. Hundreds met death In ithie inundation. Danger of Festilence. There is the gravest danger that a pestilence will follow the destruc tion of the town. On account of the vast havoc wrought, bodies will lie unburied for days and weeks. Those who escaped death, many of whom are badly injured, are making 'their way by the thousands to the nearest place of refuge. Mount Aetna appears to have been the center of the disturbances and that portion of Sicily within a radius of 40 miles seems to have been laid waste. It Is not known whether the volcano is in action, as that section of the island is complete ly cut off from the world, even the railroads of the entire eastern half of the city being destroyed.

Fourteen years In the penitentiary, the maxi mum, was the sentence meted out Tuesday to Abraham Ruef, who for four years directed the political des tinies of San Francisco as adviser of the administration of Eugene E. Schmitz, mayor of the city. Judgment was pronounced at the close of a day devoted to legal bat tle, wherein the defense sought to introduce many reasons for a new trial. There was no demonstration on the part of the spectators during the proceedings in the courtroom, nor later when Ruef, having entered 'the prison van in the custody of a deputy sheriff, started In the dusk on his long ride to the county jail. Before the adjournment of court notice of appeal had been filed on behalf of the defendant and the court had signed a writ of probable cause, which will act as a stay of 6X0CUUCU. In a trial that was prolonged through a period of nearly four months Ruef was convicted, Decem ber 10, of bribing John J. Furey, an ex-supervisor, to favor the award of an overhead trolley franchise to the United Railroads. This was one of 114 indictments returned against Ruef by the Oliver grand Jury. One of the many incidents that tended to make the trial of Ruef re markable was the shooting of As sistant District Attorney Francis J. Heney by Morris Haas, an ex-convict, whose past record was exposed by the prosecutor after the would-be slayer had been accepted as a mem bers of the Jury, Haas subsequently committed suicide In the county jail, with most of the I mi ROAD DOING n LOTS OF BUSINESS i j SHIPMENTS TO AND FROM EN TERPRISE ARE HEAVY 65 CARS OF STOCK.

Joseph Pulitzer, who drew the president's fire through editorial criticisms of the ranama oannl purchase, has for the last thirty yenrs been one of the most conspicuous figures in American journalism. The New York World of which he Is the proprietor, hns for two decades been a potent factor not only In national politics, but has wielded n powerful Inllueiice in public affairs in New York city and throughout the Empire Slate. Few men have a firmer grasp upon matters of worldwide importance than Mr. Pulitzer and his newspaper reflects his views in the most minute particular run. Djring the same time there have been 15 car load lots received hore. The buslne-is both passenger and freight has exceeded anticipations, and the railroad men say the busi ness breaks all records for a new station at a town of this size, Harry Dowd shipped three cars of cattle to Wallace from Enterprise, Thursday, and M.

FOR RAILROAD RESIDENT OF NORTH COUNTRY CONTENDS PEOPLE SHOULD BUILD LINE. Someone signing himself "Subscri ber," had the following rouBlng rail road letter in the latest Issue of the Flora Journal: "We of the North End, why lie dor mant any longer. We all know that first, we have the best of timothy land and lots of it. Second, we all know good timothy land near a rail road to be worth anywhere from $30 to $G0 per acre. Again we are al most certain of a logging road as rar out ai Sled Springs in the very near future. Why not make a mov-a inyway and put out some kind of an inducement to the company to ex end their road on into the North Slid. Say each of us who have la i.i or property of any kind out here ivould take so much stock In a road to Intersect with the logging road. rhe re3ult would be our land would jasily double it not treble in value. "But, says one, It might not pay. Ves it would. Loik at the hogs, lorses and cattle which go out of he county every yeir, basldes the lumber, wood and hay that would go j-.it. "As to transportation, says an il her, there is not much land In cul ivatlon yet. True enough, but look it the land that could and would be nit In cultivation if we had market 'or' hay and other produce to which his North End soil is adapted. And igain it is only a step, comparatively, lown some of the canyons to th3 jrand Ronde river to the undevelop ed coal fields In abundance and on '.hroiigh to Walla Walla. It Is only i matter of time until this or Bome i her step will be made and why not is make It and profit thereby. If you have two quarters of land worth 510 nn acre It would pay you to give me quarter (If need be) to make Hie other worth $60 per acre. With in ordinary yield of timothy hay and a market at $10 per ton, one quarter a sufficient to keep any family In Jie county. "And then some would say: ,ell, t would be a big job to clear this land. You need not care how- big i job It is if you are getting good pay for your land. The most of yo.i would have lumber, wood, and pja s enough on your land to makp you big wages while you were clearing. 1'liere is no better land for timothy. A ton to the acre would be a very iinall crop any kind of a season. ' We know peoplo here wh-j are hotter posted and more competent to agitato his subject and set the people to thinking.
