WRECK OFTHE ROMA
Thirty-Four of America's Brave
Young Men Burned And Broken
When the Airship Fell
Newport News, Feb. 22. Officers
and men from Langley Field last
night positively identified thirty of
the thirty-four men burned in the de
struction of the Roma.
Among them was Captain Dale
Mabry, of Tampa, Fla., second in
command, and a brother of Dr. J. H.
Mabry of this city. As the work, of
dentification dragged through the
night and into the early morning
hours Dr. Mabry, the only relatives
of any of the victims who thus far has
seen the remains, stood stoically by,
never shifting his position. He was
ooking for his brother. Man after
man was identified or sent back for
ater identification. The last body
brought in proved to be that for which
he was waiting. Friends took the
physician outside. The blackened
mass of what had once been a human
body was covered with a sheet after
identification had been established to
the satisfaction of Dr. Mabry.
Wives, mothers and sweethearts of
the victims were not allowed to view
the bodies, most of which were burn
ed beyond recognition. There are
eighteen or twenty widows at the fly
ing station as a result of the disaster.
The only live thing about any were
several watches. Three of these were
still ticking when taken from the
charred and water soaked clothing
after midnight. Others had stopped
at the time of the accident, register
ing 2:10 o'clock, the exact time the
explosion took place.
The blackened torsos is all that re
mains of several. Others lie as if pet
rified. Others were so badly broken
and twisted there is no hope of put
ting them in regular coffns.

we invite you to select a delegate or

The Tampa Board of Trade, accord-

to every patron of the theater on
both sides of the Atlantic; it is, in
fact, conceded by the greatest wrtiers

when it comes to the real perfection

In "Blind Youth," he has given the
stage a character and play that is at

impulse rather than reason, leads him
into all sorts of trouble; of course
there is ample opportunity for much

nications, the clerk read a letter from
the Ocala Manufacturing Company in
reference to a boiler they offered the
city for 14000 with a cash payment
of $1000 and the balance in three
$1000 payments in three months, with
eight per cent interest on deferred
An outside firm also offered the
council two boilers of the size requir
ed for $7500. These boilers are of
the marine type and were secured
from the U. S. shipping board. Mr.
Brumby,, city manager, called the at
tention of the council to the fact that
the marine type boiler had much
shorter tubes and did not get near as
much head from the fuel because Of
the short passage for the hot gases.
Mr. Brumby said that the purchase of
a marine type boiler or boilers would
be a great mistake because of the
future excess fuel bill whenever these
boilers were in use. Mr. Brumby has
been made a price on stationery boil boilers
ers boilers at substantially the same figure
as the marine boilers and has written
for detailed specifications of the boil
ers quoted. He has also written to
the firm making these quotations and
asked that it send a representative
here to confer with the manager and
council on the question of boilers.

' John C. Thompson, the 'attorney
who attended to the validation of the
street paving bonds, sent in a bill of
$100 for services rendered. This bill
was ordered paid.
The A. C. L. R. R. sent in a bill for
freight that had been undercharged in
September, 1918. Payment was refus
ed because the council had no way of
checking up on an error made so
All bills were ordered paid when
properly approved. It was agreed that
the cost of the Ford to be used by
the city manager should be paid half
and half from the general fund and
the light and water fund.
Clerk Sistrunk presetted each
member of the council with a copy of
the budget and a statement of the
funds already expended in his depart
ment. There was a minute's lull in
the proceedings while each of the city
parents looked over his accounts and
figured roughly whether he would
be able to finish the year without go

The D. W. Davis Insurance Agency
was requested to renew its policy for

A bill presented by the Spencer
Pedrick Motor Co. for lumber used in
the past fall was referred to the city
manager for payment. This bill was
presented in blank, leaving it to the
council to fix the price on the lumber
used, and Mr. Brumby was instructed
to ascertain the market price of lum
ber at that date and pay the bill at
The council then asked Mr. Brumby
if he had any report to make. Mr.
Brumby said that he had hardly been
on the job long enough to make a re report
port report but that he had some questions
to ask and some suggestions to make.
He first wanted to know just what
money he was allowed to spend by the
provisions of the charter, it was
found that he was allowed to spend
any amounts designated by the coun
cil. They told Mr. Brumby to use his
own discretion in this matter and
spend any reasonable amounts ha
found it necessary to use.
One of the first things that Mr.
Brumby wanted to do to systematize
the city work is to have a simple sort
of order book printed and give one to
each department head or foreman.
Any purchase that is to be charged
to the city shall be accompanied by
one of these orders showing -what it
is for, who got it and a duplkata is
to be kept for the manager's o3ce.
He can then tell at a glance what is
being expended in each department
and he can transfer tools and equip equipment

Mr. Brumby requested a telephone,

who can do filing, letter writing and

sure pressure was so low at the beginning of
Saturday's fire and Mr. McKenzie said
that the report about the steam pump
being out of running order was false
and that it was started by some med
dler who did not know what he was
talking about. He said that when the
pump was first started the exhaust
was closed and that for ten or fifteen
minutes they were unable to locate
the trouble because this valve is never
closed and no one thought to look
there at first for the trouble. He
thought it likely that some meddling
visitor at the plant closed this valve
and the council decided to take steps
to fence the light and water plant to
keep meddlers out.
The discussion on new mains and a

Such is the response of the down-and-outer wfyen approached by the
advertising solicitor of the newspaper.
When pushed further the non-advertising merchant usually- pretends
that he can sell cheaper because he does not have to pay advertising
Every now and then one of these down-and-outers listens to the argu-'
ments of the advertising solicitor, puts on a trial campaign, gets satis satis-'

If the down-and-outer would only take the trouble to study the story of
the success of the advertising retailers in their own town they would
quickly get into the game and do more business.
The store which has won success through advertising would as soon
consider the possibility of discontinuing to advertise as to try to do
business without clerks.

This is a Studebaker year.
The ten commandments given to
Moses on Sinai would thin the ranks
of any national convention of farm farmers,

teuch Pentateuch would break up the meeting.
Nothing less than the strongest
and most obvious personal interest
may be counted upon to effectively
unite large bodies of men for politi political
cal political action.
Ninety per cent of all sales made
by our farmers are in hard and ruth ruthless
less ruthless competition with one another.
The construction of railroads in
the west, after the civil war, caused
farm lands in the east to shrink in
value and thousands of farms were
abandoned, as their owners went down
under competition induced by exten extension
sion extension of this means of transport.
There are millions of rich farmers
and millions of poor ones; and each
one of these millions in some part of
our country is pitted in mortal com combat
bat combat against another of those millions
in some other part of this vast Union
of states. No one of such may know
the time of his doom; which may
come as a thief in the night from
three thousand miles away, through
forces aided by easier transportation,
or some shifting in rail rates, made
in order that the consuming public
may buy more cheaply the necessities
and luxuries of life. So one farmer
goes to his death that another may
arise, phoenix like, from his ashes,
while cities grow and wax fat.
It is quite impossible that even the
most representative body of farmers
which may ever be assembled can pro
mote any active policies of govern
ment which will not split their own
So it was when they marched under
the banners of populism; and every
convention of farmers held in any
part of our country, from those days
until this hour, has never failed to
advocate some active policy which, if
attempted in a national way would
drive near half of their own class to
Our national statesmen who at attempt
tempt attempt to act as attorneys for the
plaintiffs to advocate some farming
interest will do well to know the true
style of their case, as, unless success
in such cause will promote the com
mon good of all classes they will
surely find, despite all good inten intentions,
tions, intentions, that they but act as counsel for
the plaintiffs in the case of farmers
The measures to dismember and
regulate the packers and the emerg
ency tariff are among the more im
portant interlocutory decrees lately
rendered in that never ending suit of
farmers against farmers, and those
decrees cast immense costs and attor
neys' fees on rural production.
Little was heard of this now cele
brated case of farmers against farm
ers until our government, some thirty
years ago, took over the job of adjust
ing in detail rail rates. But the
Websters, Clays and Calhouns of our
time are ever appearing as attorneys
for the plaintiffs, or defendants, in
All parties to that suit soon die of
sheer exhaustion, and Father Time

are brought in and other : Websters,

Since the fall of 1919 more tourists
visited Florida than in any like period
in its history. They spent many
millions with us for our farm pro products
ducts products and in investments. Daring
the time a general increase, on
mileage basis, had occurred in the
cost of travel, but as we were nearer
the great centers of population than
California, hundreds of oar tourists
were heard to say that the increased
rates and government tax on tickets
influenced them to come to Florida' in
preference to California. So higher
rail rates sometimes benefit some
farmers, as during that time we pro
fited at California's expense; while.
with a less rate per mile than we
have, she has pounded oar orange
business very heavily for many years,
and put our cantaloupe growers oat
of business when she reclaimed the
Imperial Valley by irrigation some
sixteen years ago.
In every respect California is oar
greatest competitor. But I may speak
for one who while cradled in a country
home from which the thundering of
the guns of Appomattox was heard,
was driven by the scourge of war to
this state, which has nurtured him
since a tiny youth. All that I pdssess
is here, and for over twenty years I
have been quite heavily interested in
cattle raising and rural production in
many lines; nevertheless, I love my
nation better than my state, and I
take pride in saluting our splendid
state of California as the queen of
that grand galaxy of states which lies
west of the Mississippi.
For variety, volume and excellence
of her rural production this western
queen of ours, who is guarded by the
Golden Gate and bathed by the Pa

I am an American; and if policies
which promote the welfare of my na nation

without complaint, if what of intelli
gence and energy may be mine will
not surmount the injuries which may
be thus imposed for the common good.
