Lima, Pern, Nov. 12. A dozen towns
were destroyed, at least 300 persons
were killed and 5000 or 6000 were
made homeless by an earthquake which
shook the mountain province of Ayma
ra last Friday, according to news re
ceived here today.
Comunication was prostrated follow
ing the disaster, so that the first ac
counts of it did not reach Suzco from
Albacay, the town which suffered most
heavily, until last night. Orders were
telegraphed from here to troops in
Cuzco, only 40 miles from Albacay, to
go to the sufferers with relief.
On their arrival thoy found condi
tions much worse than had been sup
posed. Not only were all the towns in
the quake zone practically destroyed,
but fast slides were shaken down from
the mountains, burying the ruins, to
gether with dead and injured, under
tons of earth and rock.
Circuit jurors hod some fun in the
court room today, "Judge" Savage
presiding, and before it , was all over
this document was drafted:

Washington, Nov. 12. Compromise
in Mexico was in the air today. Presi
dent Wilson was trying to induce Pres
ident Huerta and General Carranza, the
rebel leader, to agree on a mutually sat
isfoctory man to succeed Huerta and
continue os provisional president until
a fair election can be held. Administra
tion officials thought there was a
chance of success. The American war
ships Louisiana and Wheeling took
most of the American residents of Tux
pam, but it was stated they were not
in much danger.
William Bayard Hale, supposedly un
officially representing President Wil
son, conferred with General Carranza,
at NogaleB, Ariz., but their conversa
tion was kept secret.
No one was able to tell what was said
at a meeting of President Huerta and
his cabinet last night, but there were
rumors that Huerta was weakening.
Rebels claimed to have captured sev
eral towns south of Piedras Negras.
The Japanese cruiser Idzumo was or
dered to Mexican waters.

the right way on election day.
We, therefore, feel that we ought to
show to the men at the bead of the

friendly to the university, some meas
ure of appreciation and grateful ac
knowledgement of the splendid services
they rendered the state by standing
