ENTIRE STATE OF FLORIDA LEFT
IN RUINS BY HURRICANE
MANY LIVES ARE. LOST
Property Loss Millions—Destructive
Tidal Waves Sweep the
Jacksonville, Fla.—What undoubted-
ly will prove to be one of the most,
destructive of storms Monday night
and Tuesday night swept the entire
Florida peninsula, doing damage esti-
mated at several million dollars. Forty
thousand square miles of territory
south of Jacksonville has been without
any means of communication with the
outside world for more than twenty- |
Tour hours. The last reports from this
section, embracing all that territory
south of a line from Tampa to St. Au-
gustine, told of hurricane winds and
rapidly falling barometers. The or-
ange crop in that territory and the vast
trucking Industry are probably ruiped.
Along the eastern coast many lives
are believed to have been lost and the
property damage is b' Heved great.
The maximum wind velocity, seventy
miles an hour, recorded here at seven
o’clock Tuesday night, when #the cen-
ter of the disturbance appeared to
have passed up the Atlantic coast to-
ward Savannah. Mayport, at the
mouth of tho St. John’s river, experi-
enced a wind of eight/ to ninety miles
an hour, and one-half of the houses
there were wrecked.
There has been no communication
with any point* south of Jacksonville,-
with the exception of St. Augustine,
since late Tuesday afternoon, and all
wires north were severed with one ex-
ception shortly before darkness.
A heavy downpour of rain aecom
pan led the high winds everywhere. At
East St. Ajjgustine houses in the busi-
ness section were flooded at low tide,
with promise of immense damage to
business property when the high tide
came in. The city is in darkness, a
gale was still blowing at 6 p. m. Tues-
day, the swelling seas were over the
sea wall atid at that hour thousands
of dollars’ damage's had been done.

THE REAL FAN
DOLLIYER, IOWA SENATOR. DIES NEW TAX LAW EFFECTIVE
NOTED INSURGENT PASSES AWAY
AFTER WEEKS ILLNESS
Famous Statesman Expired While
Physician Was Making Exam-
ination of Heart
Fort Dodge, Iowa.—Senator Jona-
than P. Dolliver died at his residence
here at 7:30 o’clock Saturday night,
while one of his attending physicians,
Dr. E. M. Van Patten, was examining
the distinguished statesman's heart
with a stethoscope.
His death followed an acute attack
of stomach trouble, which affected his
heart. His physicians announced that
his death was due to dilation of the

day Saturday and at night entered his
sitting room for the daily consultation
with his physician.
While making the examination the
physician kept up a conversation with
Senator Dolliver, and asked him how
he was feeling.
"I am really feeling better than at
any time since my recent sickness,”
he said. “But I suppose the wolves
will be sot howling about my succes
sor,” and the senator laughed. He had
frequently expressed in a humorous
manner his opinion of having the peo-
ple pick his successor while he was
The physician continued his work
with the stethoscope, counting the
heats of the senator's heart out loud.
He was frequently interrupted by Sen ]
at or Dolliver with the declaration that
he was unable to hear his own heart.
When the physician had counted
fourteen beats he informed the sena-,
tor. • ]
"That's good,” replied Mr. Dolliver,
"the most I have ever been able to
count was seven.”
The physician continued the exam-
ination and suddenly noticed that the
heart beats had ceased. He shook his
stethoscope, believing it was defective
in some way. Again applying his in-
strument he discovered that the heart
had ceased beating entirely.
Upon looking into the senator’s face
he discovered that death had over-
taken him. He died without a strug- j
glo and without pain.
No one, with the exception of the,
physician, was in the room at the time
of his death. Mrs. Dolliver had stepped
out just before the physician began i
Corporations Saturday Subject to
Gross Income Tax
Guthrie, Okla.—Governor Haskell's
j railroad gross income tax bill'became
effective Saturday. Under the bill, the
state board of equalization met Satur-
j day to consider the income reports of
! the various railroads, which are re-
quired to have been filed with the state
auditor oil or before that da
The railroad tax bill originated with
Governor Haskell, and was one of the
chief measures passed by the 1910 leg-
islature/ It exempts railroads from ad
valorem taxation and taxes them ac-
j cording to their gross incomes. The
rates of taxation scales, according to
I the percentage of expenses to income,
each road being placed by this per-
centage in one of eight classes. The
road enjoying the lowest percentage of
operating expenses, or highest percent.-
age of gross profits, is taxed «t high< r
per cent than a poorly pay in£ road.
From the. reports of the Katy and
Rock Island filed Friday it Would ap-
pear that the faxes under the new law'
will be much greater than under the
ad valorem system. The Katy reports
a total gross income from its entire
system of 3,072 miles of main (rack
for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1910,
of $20,.759,346; operating expenses
$19,186,049; average gross income per
mile, $8,645.62; average operating ex-
penses per mile, $6,245.46. The main
track mileage cf Oklahoma is 675.61.
The percentage of operating expenses
to gross income was 72.24 per centum,
which places the Katy in class "D”
with a state tax rate of .019375 per dol-
lar of gross income in Oklahoma; and
a county and municipal tax rate of
.00425 for each mill of local taxes. By
multiplying the Oklahoma mileage by
the average income per mile, a total
gross income for Oklahoma of $5,841 -
••67.33 is obtained, which at the "I>”
ntte would make the Katy liable for
$113,170 state taxes alone. The state
ad valorem levy this year is 1 mill, and
the Katy’a ad valorem value this year
is $28,152,546, which on an ad valorem
basis would make the road liable for
$28,152 In state taxes, whereas the new
law would make the state tax $113,170.
Bad Wreck at Talihina
St. Louis, Mo.—Forty-three passen-
gers wore slightly injured when train
No. 3 of the Frisco, known as the
“Texas Limited,” which left here Wed-
nesday at 8:25 o’clock, was partly de-
railed at 4 o’clock Thursday be-
tween Compton and Talihina, Okla,
according to reports received at the
headquarters of the road. The en-
gine, tank, chair car, diner, smoker
and baggage car stood upright* after
leaving the rails, the mail car turned
over. The Pullman cars did not leave
the track. A relief train, carrying
doctors, left Fort Smith. Ark., for the
scene of the wreck. The injured were
taken to Fort Smith.
Big Strike in France Ends
Paris.—The railroad strike was for-
mally called off Monday night. Work
was resumed on all lines Tuesday.
The collapse of the strike was pri-
marily due to the stringent measures
taken by the premier, Briand, who
called to the colors the majority of
the strikers, thus compelling them to
do service as reservists. The premier
also placed under arrest many of the
strike leaders and used the military
forces without restraint for the pro-
tection of life and property. After
having broken the back of the strike,
M. Briand successfully arranged a
practical settlement, whereby the
chief demands of the men were met.
