FIRST ANNIVERSARY OF STORM

Special Correspondence to The Express.
CORPUS CHRISTI, Tex.. Sept. 15.—Pew
Corpus Christi people who actually went
through the harrowing experiences of the
storm of September 14, 191V, are willing to
talk of their adventures. Instead, they
point to the manner in which the city and
its residents are overcoming the setback
sustained at that time.
The first anniversary of the storm found
Corpus Christi enjoying extraordinary
prosperity as a result of the splendid cot-
ton crop. If the general financial strin-
gency caused by storm loss did not inter-
fere with that result, the city now would
be enjoying a great boom. As it is, mer-
chants rapidly are regaining their lost for

Mrs. Anna Maibaum One of Early Set-
tlers of San Antonio.
Anna Maibaum died at her rcsi-
418 Atlanta Street, at S:30 last
at the age of 84. She was born
rapidly and standing accounts liquidated.
The building record for the period from
October 9, when the first permit was
issued after the storm to September 1 was
$248,215. according to the books of C. J.
Howard, building inspector. Unlike most
other places where building permits would
be made up of a number of fairly large
sums, the Corpus Christ! permits were
made up of a myriad of comparatively
small ones, most of which were for restora
tion of storm damage. The moving of
houses from the beach portion of the city
to the bluff section was a noticeable fea-
ture, but it also was noticed that many
pioneers in this direction were re-estab-
lishing businesses or rebuilding homes in
the beach portion of the town.
Health conditions have been good here,
despite storm damage, which in a less fa-
vored climate might have resulted in epi-
demics. Dr. II. C. Hall, now State plague
commisisoner, but at that time assigned
by the State government to take charge of
the health situation following the storm,
on the occasion of his recent visit here told
how he had arrived immediately after the
storm. Water, he said, has prevented dis-
ease arising out of the havo# created by
water. It had occurred to him that any
thing that water had put on, water could
take off. Using fire hose, he and citizen
volunteer workers directed streams from
the nozzles into the sewers and cleared
them of mud and debris. Next, as rapidly
as possible, the streets were hosed off.
Supplemental effort in the form of rulings
about boiling cistern water before drink-
ing it, cleaning and drying of dwellings
and the use of plenty of chloride of lime,
had resulted in killing the disease germs
before they had an opportunity to get to
work. Climate played a large part in the
result also. Dr. Hall said.
Special Correspondence to The Express.
CORPUS CHRISTI, Tex.. Sept. 13.—A
souvenir of the first anniversary of the
storm treasured by Russell Savage, City
Attorney, is a postcard from Mrs. Jean
Allan .Martyn, a modest heroine of the dis-
aster. Mrs. Martyn took charge of a inu
nicipal kitchen in the council chamber of
the City Hall immediately after the storm,
and during the first 48 hours was never
off her feet. She was busy feeding people
and helping bandage the injuries of the
wounded as they were brought it. Mrs.
Martyn now Is a resident of San Juan,
Texas, and wrote Mr. Savage on the first
anniversary of the storm congratulating
him and through him her other friends

CHICAGO, Sept. 15.—In the mystery
surrounding the death Tuesday morning
of George L. Miller. Chicago business man,
at Lelaud, 111., simultaneously with a ban-
dit raid on the town, a new element en-
tered today. This was Stella Broughton,
sweetheart of Miller.
Miss Broughton is prostrated in Madras,
Ore., where she went from Chicago a few
months ago. She knew Miller for a num-
ber of years as a prosperous automobile
broker, who weekly invested thousands of
dollars in automobile consignments, and
who always carried large rolls of $100.
$1,000 and $5,000 bills.
"I can't believe he was a robber," she
sobbed while a Tribune correspondent was
interviewing her. I went with him con-
stantly for over six months. He never
mentioned anything of the kind, and I
believe I would have known it if he had
But while Miller was posing to Miss
Broughton as an automobile broker, he
was known to his landlady and friends as
a poultry buyer.
At the coroner's inquest held at Lelana
today an open verdict was returned.
Testimony was to the effect that Miller
had l»een a member of the bandit gang,
which had stormed Leland and after an
unsuccessful attempt to rob a bank at
Franklin Grove 111., the previous evening.
Miller the police theorize, was the "look-
out" for the gang when thev attempted to
rob the implement, Rtore behind which his
body was found. The Leland police have
come to the conclusion that Miller was
shot by members of the gang who mis-
took him for the night village marshal.
Meanwhile Chicnco police began an in-
vestigation into Miller's life. It Is be-
lieved that if Miller was a bandit, through
his death the other members of the gang
may be captured.

WEATHER AND CROPS
TYLER, Tex., Sept. 14.—A week of sunshine
and hot weather has dispelled the depression
felt fmm several weeks of rain which were
threatening to completely ruin the cotton crop
throughout East Texas. Tne crop will be short,
hut there is now promise of saving most of
the matured bolls. The farmers are also find-
ing a shortage of cotton pickers. Farmers are
only gathering a portion of the crop that will
give them a good turnout- They are learning
what lt costs to pick the low grades of cotton,
gin it, put bagging and ties around it, and
when this is done there is no sale for it. The
damaged cotton will be ployed under and stock
will be turned in the field after the better
grades of cotton have been gathered. The re
action has also been frit in trading circles.
Saturday last was decidedly the beat day from
a trading viewpoint that the East Texaa mer-
chants have experiem*ed since the movement of
the new crop. With continued warm weather
East Texas cotton will turn out better than at
ployers Wednesday, September 22. J. II.
Frieke and M. j. Gahagan, president and
secretary, respectively, of the South At-
lantic and Gulf Coast District, plan to

steamship companies. Neither are the
unions advised as to whom they will meet
around the board at New Orleans.
Failure to receive any definite informa-
tion from the conference now in progress
at New York between longshoremen and
employers has left the prospective New
Orleans conferees without basis on which
to predicate tentative agreements. In
common with the general public, union
leaders are without advices as to ihe prog-
ress of the New York meeting. Conse-
quent! j% no developments are expected
until next Wednesday's meeting gets down
to business, for employers do uot defi
nitely know what terms will be proposed
by the unions, and the latter are not ad-
vised as to the contract terms which may
prove acceptable to the companies. All
agree that the standard of proceedings at
New Orleans will be set by those followed
at New York.
Not less than a week is expected to be
consumed in preliminary wage conference
and the meeting with employers.
Officials of the coastwise locals say they
have a mass of accurate data on freight
movement over the Mallory and Morgan
line docks since the date of their opera-
tion with non-union labor, intimating that
this information is of such a nature as to
admit of no doubt concerning the business
economy of employing men from the labor
Union leaders have been busy the past
few days with conferences among them-
selves. There is prevalent a more general
tone of optimism regarding an amlcabls
adjustment of the whole labor situutlon
than has been the case heretofore. The
traditional belief that Galveston is a
"union town" is strongly relied upon in
spite of the several instances in which em-
ployers have declined to sigu union con-
tracts. By the actual strength, which union
labor represents iu the citizenship of Gal-
veston, the organizations hope once more
to draw the lines as closely here as they
were before. \

WASHINGTON, IJ. C., Sept. 15.—Edmund
11. Moore, pre-convention campaign man-
ager for Governor Cox. is here in the role
of political rescuer. His remedy for the
fit of grogginess contracted by the Demo-
cratic party in Maine last Monday was au
ultimatum delivered to Administration
leaders. It read:
"Get the money."
Mr. Moore spent the entire day in con-
ference with Attorney General Palmer and
Francis 1*. Garvan, Alien Property Cus-
todian. The Senate Investigating Commit-
tee, it will be recalled, revealed that much
of Attorney General Palmer's pre-conven-
tion campaign fund came from persons
connected with the Alien Property Cus-
Mr. Moore had lunlh at the Shoreham
Hotel with Joseph P. Tumulty and Jos-
eph T. Guffcy, Pittsburgh oil man, who
ran the Attorney General's campaign for
the Democratic nomination. Thou they
went to the Attorney General's oftice and
afterward to see Mr. Garvan.
The appeal from Governor Cox's mana-
ger, according to those iu on the confer-
ences, was in the nature of a warning that
"all is lost unless some one comes across."
Some Administration leaders flatly refused
to "send good money after bad."
Complaints voiced by thein that the
campaign committee is a "disorganized in-
stitution which would get nowhere, even
if we were willing to furnish money," was
met with a virtual pledge .that the entire
organization will be "shaken up."
Mr. Moore was reminded also that while
it was recently decided that President
Wilson should get into the fight by in-
stituting a "back-porch campaign," the
Cox forces had not as yet given their
consent. That reminder-brought the quick-
Within a few hours dispatches from New
York City quoted National Chairman
George White and Senator Pat Harrison,
chairman of the Speakers' Bureau, as being
anxious to obtain a "back-porch declara-
tion" from the President.
Although Mr. Moore denied he is here
to raise money, he admitted that the Demo-
cratic committee is in great financial
straits. , . ...
Some Democrats put the blame for this
condition directly upon Governor Cox. His
complaint agaiust contributions to the Re-
publican fund have been so loud, they
state, that Democrats are afraid to give
money because of possible unpleasant pub-

MARK FALLS UNTIL AMERICAN
DOLLAR BUYS SIXTY—RUMORS
By Universal Service.
BERLIN, Sept. 15.—The collapse of Ger-
man exchange occasioned some misgivings
today in financial circles and some alarm
to the general public. The dollar bought
GO marks this afternoon.
There is loose talk, not to be taken
serioubly, about a possible declaration of
national bankruptcy. In contradistinction
to it a report compiled by Germany's lead-
ing financiers and published today by the
governn nt., clearly indicates the folly of
such a course.
"A declaration of bankruptcy by the Ger-
man government," says the report, "would
mean a collapse o the entire social system.
Millions of small holders of war loan stock
who are now on the side of law and order
would go over to the extremist camp if
their savings were wiped out."
The report, however, describes Germany's
financial situation as dangerous in the ex-
treme. It is mentioned that the loss of
the state railways during 1920 cannot, at
the present rate of exchange, be less than
$250,000,000. The postoffice will have a
deficit of nearly $30,000,000.
The evasion of taxation and the flight
of capital continue despite all precautions.
The experts declare that Germany can pay
her indemnities only if the entente help
her to her feet, financially and industrially.

NEW YORK Sept. 15.- B. F. Goodrich
Company has ..lid off about 4,000 of the
20,000 operatives and is running three-
hour shifts, five days a week. Although
total production has been somewhat cur-
tailed. the present force is working under
a new system, which has increased output
per man and is more satisfactory to both
employes and the' company.
When it became necessary a short time
ago to reduce tire production, the com-
pany decided to adopt a plan which had
been used in a small way in one of the
mechanical goods departments. The plan
provides for "pooled" operations by vari-
ous departments and payment is made on
a basis of a certain volume of production,
shared in proportionately by the various
members of each department.
For example, the compounding depart-
ment, which mixes crude rubber and chem-
icals used in manufactun of various rub-
ber produ 'is. is told to deliver a specified
amount, of various compounds. The de-
partment is paid a fixed sum for each ton
of compound delivered and the members
of the department share proportionately
in this payment. In other words, the men
are not paid l»v the hour or day. nor do
they operate on a piecework basis. It. is
more or less a matter of volume. If SO
men in one group can deliver as much
compound ::s 100 men in another group,
the members of the first gang will re
ceive individually more money than those
of the second. This increases personal ef-
ficiency. for the men themselves see that
no one shirks. At the same time, the com-
pany can regulate production In a more
satisfactory manner than heretofore.
