THE MOST TERRIBLE DISASTER

At Messina 12,000 Perish in Earth

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
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

tidal wave. Hundreds met death In
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.

Notice of Appeal Given Climax of
Lcng Struggle Marked by
San Francisco, Dec. 30. 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
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,

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

ivould take so much stock In a road
