EARTHQUAKE DERAILS TRAIN
Passenger Sees Towns Disappear in
Clouds of Dust.
LONDON, Jan. 14. Experiences of a
passenger on a train thrown from the
track by the earthquake are related in
a dispatch from Rome to the Central
"Our train was near Lake Fucino
when the earthquake occurred," he
said. "There was one shock of great
violence, followed by three others. The
train was thrown off the rails and
many of the passengers Injured.
"I climbed out of the train and gazed
around on the lake and the mountains.
Where there had been towns I could
merely see enormous whirlwinds of
dust and smoke. Apparently the towns
existed no longer."
The dispatch adds that almost all the
way to Tivoli buildings along the rail
way were in ruins. Troops-sent from
Rome were able to rescue hundreds of
persons at many points, but cries for
help were heard from beneath ruined
buildings in a large number of in
stances in which it was impossible to
effect a speedy release of the victims.
It is estimated that 4000 persons were
buried alive under the wreckage at
Avezzano. Through the night shouts
for help could be heard. In one in
stance a school building collapsed,
burying 200 children, many of whom
are still alive.
It is said 400 soldiers were in the
barracks at Avezzano when it col
lapsed and that only four of them es
caped. Ambassador Page Seeks Details.

Principle Involved in Transfer of
Belligerent-Owned Ships to Amer
ican Registry to Be "Waived
in Single Instance.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 14. The State
Department is trying to arrange with
the British government for the immedi
ate dispatch ot the steamship Dacia.
from Port Arthur. Tex., to Rotterdam,
with a cargo of cotton, on the basis
of a temporary voyage. The question
of principle of the right of transfer
of belligerent-owned ships to American
registry will be waived if the Dacia is
privileged to make this one voyage
free from seizure.
The arrangement was proposed to
Ambassador Spring-Rice today by So
licitor Johnson, of the State Depart
ment, who said that contracts of Ameri
can cotton-growers for delivery of the
Dacia's cargo to German firms at
Bremen within a limited time would be
lost unless the ship were allowed to
proceed at once.
As the British government had ob
jected to the transfer of the Dacia's
registry and her sailing between Texas
ports and Bremen, the State Depart
ment sought to leave for future adjust
ment the larger question of the legal
ity of the transfei by changing the
destination of the ship from Bremen to
Rotterdam, whence the cotton may be
transferred by rail or lighters to
Sir Cecil Spring-Rico has transmit
ted the proposal to his government and
today was awaiting a response.
Counsel for the owner of the Dacia
deposited with the British Ambassador
today the certified checks for J165.000
with which payment for the vessel was
made and submitted evidence that the
German master and crew had been
superseded by Americans.
SHIP LIKELY TO BE SEIZED
Carso. However, May Be Permitted
to Reach Its Destination.
LONDON, Jan. 14. Cable advices
were received at the Foreign Office to
day to the effect that loading of the
steamship Dacia had been suspended.
The liope is entertained in official cir
cles that the United States will not
permit the former German vessel, the
validity of whose transfer to the
American flag is generally questioned
by 'the London press, to enter the Ger
man cotton trade.
The suggestion from Washington
that the Dacia might carry cotton to
Rotterdam instead of Bremen is re
garded by British officials as not offer
ing a solution to the quetsion. There
is no disposition on the part of the
Foreign Office to decide precisely what
action will be taken concerning the
Dacia until it is known positively that
she has sailed for Germany under the
American flag. Even if the Dacia
were to carry a cargo of cotton to
Bremen, it is probable, a prominent
official intimated, that the cargo would
be permitted to reach its destination,
although it is likely that the vessel
would be detained if the facts in con
nection with her sale are as reported
