CATANIA, Sicily. Deo. 2S.-Mount Etna
Is this morning showing activity, and the
detonations, which can be plainly beard
In thla city, together with the volume of
smoke rolling out of the crater, have added
to the panic of the people.
According to the director of the local
observatory this activity la directly con
nected with the earthquakes of yesterday
which brought such havoc In Calabria
and Sicily, but a great eruption la not ex
pected. Such phenomena seldom accom
pany violent ee Ism la disturbances.
Terrible Seeaes at Meaalaa.
The following graphic atory Is told by a
woman who arrived from Messina this
morning, badly injured:
" 'Infernal Is the only word that will
adequately describe the fearful and terri
fying, scene,"; sbe said. "When the -flrsH
shock came, most . ot tha city was fast
asleep. I was awakened by the rocking of
the house, Windows swayed -en rattled
and crockery and glass crashed to the floor.
The next moment I was violently thrown
out of my bed to tha floor. I was halt
stunned, but knew that the only thing to
do waa to make my wajr outdoors. The
streets were filled. - Everybody bad rushed
out In their night clothes, heedless of the
rain falling In torrenta. Terrified shrieks
arose from all sides and si heard heart
rending appeala for help from the unfortun
ates pinned beneath the ruins. . ,
People la -easy. .
"Walls were tottering all around us and
not one of our party expected to escape
alive. My brothers and sisters were with
tne Sflcrift arfrensy ef' terror "we grnpod
oneway -through the streets, holding our
own against ths panic-stricken j people, ,
clambering over plUs of ruins, until ws
finally . reached a place of comparative
safety. . .
"But this wss not done before I was
struck down and badly Injured by a piece
of furniture that fell out ot tha upper
story of a house.
"Alt along the road we were Jostled
by scores of fleeing people, bait clad,
like ourselves. The houses seemed to be
crashing to the ground la whatever di
rection we turned.
"Suddenly the sea began to peur Into
tha town. It aeemed to mi that this must
mean the end of everything. The on
coming waters rolled In a huge wave, ac
companied by a terrifying roar. .
Gas Works Blew Vs.
"The sky was aglow with the reflec
tion of burning palaces and other build
ings snd as If this waa not enough there
suddenly shot up Into the sky a huge
burst of flame, followed by a crash that
seemed to shake the whole town. This
probably was ths gas works blowing up.
Eventually we reached the principal
square of Mesalaa. Here we found 1,000
or 1,000 uttarly terrified people assem
bled. None of us knew what to do.
Ws were all In an. agony of fear. Men
and women prayed, groaned and shrieked.
I aaw one of the big buildings on the
square collapse. It seemed to me that
aoores of persons were burled beneath the
ruins. Then I lost consciousness snd
I remember no more."

The horror and destructtvsness of this
visitation probably will exceed that of any
earthquake In Italy since 17M, when 40,000
persons perished at Meealna alone.

WASHINGTON. Dec. 19. Tha alarming
conditions which have called out state
troops and United States marshals at the
mining town of Stearns, Whitley county,
Kentucky, Is creating some discussion at
the War department over the probability
ot a condition arising to call for United
States troops to uphold the power of the
United Btstoe courts. Although condl-
tlons In the Kentucky town are only
vaguely understood hers. It Is assumed
that the local authorities will bs able
to suppress disorder and that by ths I'.b-
era! use of United States marshals In
conjunction with stste troops the orders
of the court Will be executsd.
Should be round impossible to ao mis,
either from the Inability ot the court- to
secure the servlo of enough marshals, or
for any other reason so that the power or
the court would become nullified, there Is
ample authority for tha sending of troops
A United States statute provides that In
a case of this kind where the attitude of
the people towards the mandates of the
court assumes proportions of a rebellion
against federal authority, federal troops
may be used to bring about a condition in
which the orders of the court will bs re-

LEGISLATORS ARE COMING IN
(Continued from First Page.)
Into law. Soma of the democrats who ran
for office on that platform have taken
the hunch that they are up against a
hard proposition. For instance, the Slate
Board of Assessment this year divided
the physical value from the franchise
value, and the latter, In many oases, is
worth much more than the physical value.
Bo If the railroads are to be assessed and
taxed on their physical value, then their
taxes will -be reduced, and to pay the ex
penses of the state taxes on other prop
erty will have to be increased. And ths
democrats have promised to reduce the
taxes on farm lands and Increase rail
Some of the members are talking
bravely about forcing Mr. Bryan and Mr.
bhallenberger to keep hands off of ths
legislature, and to keep the presidential
candidate oilt they are going to ask him
to make good on the things he talked
about during the campaign. It is the
opinion of some of the democratlo lead
ers that to ask Mr. Bryan to get down
Into details about Ms plans of legislation
will cause him some embarrassment.
Governor-elect Bhallenberger has sent
out several letters to members of the leg
islature telling them they must be eco
nomical In the matter of expenditures.
This haa caused several to get their
backs Up, and one member said If the new
governor would watch the executive de
partment, through which most of ths
money Is spent, that will be enough for
him to do.
Ks Recount for Price.
W. B. Price will not ask the legislature
to recount the votes cast In the last elec

looking After tils taw business, as he has
done since the election.
"I do not want the office of auditor and
will not contest the election," said Mr.
Price. "I was forced into the race for the
