Almost Every Building in Laredo, Texas, is Gone. Laredo, Tex., May 1.— At least 21 persons were killed and a score injured in Laredo and New Laredo by a tornado that tore through the city late last night. Sixteen were killed here. Ru mors of many others killed in places outside of Laredo are heard, but as yet they lack confirmation. Property damage is large. Four of the dead were members of one family and were working on the ranch of George Wood man. They were all crushed to death by the falling in of the heavy walls of the adobe house they occupied. The others met their fate in a like manner. The damage wrought at the Laredo seminary is severe. Not one of the group of buildings that go to make up the institution escaped damage. The escape from death ot the teachers at present quartered in the institution is considered miracu’ous, as the walls of some of the buildings that they occu pied were demolished. Mrs. Early, one of the teachers, was heroically res cued by several young cadets, students of the institution, they lowering her by a rope from a second story window. She was badly bruised. The Mexican National hospital build ing roof was lifted, and it will require much time to repair the building. A trip through the town fails to show a locality that has not suffered from the storm. Telegraph and tele phone poles, corrugated roofs, chim neys and walls; in fact, debris of all imaginable kinds strew the streetB. The city authorities are at work clear ing away the wreckage of the storm and tonight the city began to assume its customary tranquil appearance. Line men are at work endeavoring to straighten out the tangled wires, and it is believed that within two days the electric light service can be resumed. It is hoped to re-establish telegraphic communication at least partially with in two days. CHINA HOLDING OUT Breaks Off Negotiations Regard ing Exclusion. ASKS FOR MORE LIBERAL TERMS Objects to the Restrictions Placed on Merchants, Travelers and Stu dents Now Admitted. Washington, April 27. — Negotia tions between the United States and China for a treaty restricting the im migration of Chinese to this country have practicall}’ been abandoned. It has been found impossible by the rep resentatives of the two governments to reach a common grounîi of agreement. The whole subject, therefore, is being held in abeyance until W. W. Rock- hill, the recenty appointed minister of the United States to China, shall ar rive in Peking It is expected that he will take up the matter directly with the Chinese government. When Wu Ting Fang was minister of China to this capital, he made an ex haustive study of the Chinese immigra tion question, ascertaining very pre cisely, among other things, the Ameri can point of view, lie maintained con sistently the injustice of the restric tions thrown by this government around the immigration of Chinese, but was unable to accomplish anything in the way of lowering the barfiers dur ing hia sojourn here. In China he is now in a position to make it difficult, if not absolutely impossible, to nego tiate a treaty unless the convention shall have incorporated in it certain provisions for which the Chinese gov ernment contends.
