Now Orleans. April 27. Probably
COO live lost, 100 or more persons
fatally Injured and many times thla
number fatally hurt, together with a
property loss running up In the rait
linos, is the record so far of a tornada
that originated in tho west two days
ago, sweeping Toxas, Arkansas, Louis
ana, Tennessee and Georgia. It haa left
a path of death, desolation and want
In Its wake, seriously interrupted all
communication between cities In the
south, and brought about chaotle con
ditions In many smaller towns.
MUalsslppI, already a sufferer from
morn than one tornado this year, has
again borne tbo brunt of the winds and
rains. Kstlmntet of tho number of
tbo'o who lost their lives In that state
plueo the death Hat between 160 and
175, with a thousand or more injured.
In Texas, Louisiana, Alabama and
Georgia the death lista are also large,
with serious loss of lifo In Arkansas
and Tennessee. Authentic Information
is In mnny Instances lacking, owing to
the crippled facilities for communica
tion and the lack of tlmo to form any
thing like an accurate estimate of the
damago done In many sections.
In half a dozen communities martial
law has bcn declared, so terrible was
the destruction and so helpless were
tho stricken people left by the disastor.
Horious (Unorders have occurred in some
plaees, Including Amite, I.a. Looting
and other crimes have been reported,
but those Instances have on tho whole
been rare.
Heveral plaees have lasued appeals for
aid and In Mississippi Governor Noel

The tornado bat lasted in all a period
of nearly two days. It waa Thursday
nlgbt that damage by tornadoes travel
log wat first reported from points, in
Texas. This was followed during the
next 24 hoars by similar reports from
Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and
Tennessee. Last night Alabama came
within the flight of the storm and to
day reports of serious damage by the
wind in Georgia have been recorded.
Utter misery of every sort waa found
today at Purvla, Miss., bv relief parties.
Despite the fact that of the 2500 iahab
tanta which thla little town boasted yes
terday morning, there were only 000 to
day, still there were not rufficlent ac
commodations In tbo wrecked village for
even the wounded. Negro mammies and
little black children lay wounded and
triples under the broiling Southern sun.
Home had broken bones, some were part
ly crushed and other had been wound
ed by sticks and splinters. These unfor
nnatea were lucky if tboy bad a blanket
or wrecked couch to rest upon.
There waa not enough shelter In the
town to protect them from tbe sun and
many of thn wall which remained
standing had no roofs, and by a queer
freak of the tornado many of tbe trees
which had not been uprooted had been
snatched off a few feet above tbe
ground. The grove of plnea waa muti
lated in sneh a manner that it appeared
as if a gigantic scythe bad swept
through tbo grove about 23 feet above
tbe ground.

Warns Congress Against Abuits of
Judicial System
Washington. April 28. President
Roosevelt this afternoon sent to
congress a special message setting
forth In tbe strongest of terms the
necessity of Immediate legislation
strengthening the anti-trust law. Ha
reiterates his well-known views as to
the grave danger to free Institutions
from the corrupting Inlluenco or
ereat wealth suddenly concentrated
In the bands ot the few, and urges
the Immedlato passage ot measures
similar to those he advocated In hla
former meseago on the same snb-
Such legislation, he says, will be
In the Interest of both the decent
corporations and tho law-abiding
labor unions. In this connection, he
sounds a warning to the labor lead
ers who have objected to tbe inclu
sion of labor organizations In the
anti-trust law amendment, and says
plainly that the exception of the
unions from the operation of the law
would render tbe measure Invalid.
A strong effort has been mndo to
havo labor organizations completely
exempted from the operations of the
law, whether or not their operations
are In restraint of trade. Such ex
emption would make the hill uncon
stitutional. It Is not possible wholly
to exempt labor organizations from
thn workings of this law, ana tney
who Insist unon wholly exomptlnit
them are merely providing that their
status shall be kept wnouy un
changed, and that they shall con
tinue to bo exposed to the action
which they now dread.
Obviously an organization not
formed for nroflt should not be re
quired to furnish statistics In any
way ns comnleto ns those furnished
by organizations for profit. More
over, so far as labor Is engaged In
protection only. Its claims to be ex
empted from tho anti-trust law are
sound. This would substantially
cover the right of laborers to com
blno, to strike pencenbly and to en
ter Into trado agreements with em
ployers. But when labor undertakes;
In an unlawful manner In "revent
tho distribution and anle of the pro
ducta of labor It has left tbe told of
protection and Its action may w
plainly in restraint ot Interstate
Cut Rates to Orient.
