iPortland, O., Jan. 16. The Or
egonian: Kingston, the plctareeqae
capital of- the island of Jamaica,
haa baen devastated by a violent
earthquake. ' . '.
;. Ddtaila of the dieaBter are lack
ing, as direct communication with
the. stricken city has -been cut off.
The land lines had been reconstruct
ed to within five miles of Kingston
Tuesday evening, and from meager
reports received through such chan
nels as wers opened it ; has been
learned that many of the most im
portant buildings have been ie-
etroyed and that there have been
I serious losses of life. J . . .
So far as the. reports indicate the
fatehties number less than one nun
dred, though the hospitals are filled
with 'njured and the list of the vie
tims may be largely increased.
Kingston and the other points of
interest on the island - are at this
season of the ? year thronged with
tourists trom both America . and
England,-and the greatest appre
hension is felt for the safety of ma-
nv person who had recently arrived
at the Jamaican resort. The most
distinguished of these were, mem1
bers of a party of English states
man, agricultural, experts 'and
men of aSairs.'who under the lead
ership of Sir Alfred Jones: had ar
rived in Kingston within the past
few days to attend an agricultural
conference there. - -,
The first great ehooe was felt about
S iS 0. o'clock Mond ay- after noon,
and ' 'flames sprang immediately
irom the wrckace to carry on' the
Work of destruction.' luesday , ar
ternoon'the fire was- still burnin-?,
although rt'wae believed to be un
der control." ' : :-
'; The Myrtle Bank Hotel, theprih-
prlncipal hotel at Kingston, 'Which
probab) j Sheltered the great balk
of vieitera on the island, is destroy
ed. The great military , hospital
was burned and 40 soldiers report
ed dead.' ' ' '- r ---'.l.
Sir James FerfeuaoO is ' said to
have been instantly killed, but ac
cording to London reports no oth
er Englishmen, Canadians or Amer
icans are believed to be missing,
The ' extent of the destruction
which has been wrought in Kings
ton, a city which already bears the
ecars of a number of 'serious visita
tions of nre, earthquakes and cy
lones in years gone bp, is etill left
largely to the imagination.
The city is one ot low-lying
buildingB, clustered along the
shores of one of the finest and most
securely land-locked harbors in the
West ' Indies. ine population
which numbers 50,000, is largely
mane up of native blacks.
Many steamers, carrying tourists
to Jamaica were on the way to the
island when the earthquake oc
curred, but it so happened that, ac
cordion to schedules, none of the
shipB irom New "York or Boeton
was in Kingston Harbor Monday
London, Jan, I5 The colonia
office tonight received confirmation
of the terrible disaster which has
overtaken KlngBton, Jamaica, in
dispatch from Hamar Greenwood
. P., sent from Holland, at the
east end of the island.
The telegram, says Kingston has
been ruined - by . an earthquak
which occurred without warning
Monday afternoon at 3 -3-J o'clock.
A very great number of buildings
and dwellings were destroyed eith
er by, the earthquake or by the con
ceauent firei ':
The military. hospital was burn
ed and 4O soldiers wers reported to
have been killed, together with sev
eral prominent citizens and many
other inhabitants of the city... Sir
James .Ferguson is reported to have
been killed instantly. ' ; '
The city is quiet but disciplined
workers are needed.' Up vto this
hour the foregoing is the most cor
rect dispatch regarding the Kings
eton disaster that has been receive
here. The absence of details is ac
counted for by the : breakdown ' in
cable communication, but the an
nouncement that no Englishmen
Canadians or Ameridms-were miaa
iog will greatly reassure the public
concerning the fife of the unusual
number of tourists and 'others "who
are spending the winter in Jamaica
or who were attracted there by the
agricultural and cotton conferences.
HjThe news of the disaster reached
London too late tonight to become'
generally known to the public, but
it will bring home to the imagina
tion of the British people the ter
rors of an earthquake in a way that
even' the San Francisco catastrophe
failed to do. , , :i J ;j
Owiog to the active efforts in re
oent years of Joseph Chamberlain
and Sir Alfred Jones, the commer
cial development of Jamaica has
made the island much better known
ana it nas Deen greatly in lavor as
winter resort. ;
New 'York, ! Jan.. vl6. Cooke's
Tourist agency estimates that 2,000
Americans were visiting in - Kings
ton at the time of the quake.. Dis
patches this afternoon gay that the
city is practically ruined. , The
dead are estimated at 4oo and. the
property loss is $15,ooo,ooo. Later
calculations will probably increase
this. Communication has been par
tiaiiy restored, ine latauties are
confined mostly to natives. The
English and American tourists loBt
most of their personal effects. Most
all of the hotels were destroyed.
Kingston, Jamacia, Jan. 16.
Kingston was overwneimed by an
earthquake at 3:3o o'clock. Monday
afternoon." All houses within a ra
diua of ten miles were , damaged
Almost everv house in the city was
destroyed-. Fire broke out after the
earthquake1 ?"and completed the
work of destruction. The business
section of the city is a smouldering
heap of ruins. The killed number
about 400. Thousands were injured
Churches, public offices and hotels
are gone.. No fatalities occurred at
the Constant Springs hotel... Sir
TameB "Ferguson waa-.; among the
killed -t -i-
Salem, Or., Jan. 16. Herman
Rothchild, representative from Un
ion county and the lone democrat
of the houee, was elected by the
republicans of his district because
they had faith that he was the
hardest and most consistent fighter
of county division te be found in
that section In his campaign be
had to make a fight against his
democratic friends in union because
they favored the division of Union
county for political reasons, think
ing it would give them more chance
for control of county government
should Union be put in the center
by itself. He won out against
normal republican majority of 5oo
because the majority did not ; wish
to see the county cut in two.
This shows that the idea of
county division is not dead and
there are' other indications, A. A
Jayne of Hood River, is in attend
ance of the legislature, and although
he is a member of the third house
this session yet he is here to renew
his fight for the creation of Cascade
county, Jhoping' to carve 'away a!
portion of Wasco and leave The
Dalles with the bone of the country
and Hood river take the pick of the
valley sou and the land of the big
red apples. V ; "
' According to Mr. Jay ne a great
many of the people of that district
around Hood River wish to eee the
creation of the county; More than
l.ooo property owners in '"the: dis
trict have Bignad a petition asking
that the new county 1 e created.
All the opposition; says Mr. Jayne,
is on political grounds, end there is
great hope of being able-to pars the
measure at this session since the
enactment of the ''direct primary
law does away with the advantages
of keeping all '-the country in . the
limits of Waeco. :''"'. ?v;,:';. ,
People down Prineyille way ; are
also-planning for the creation of
three new'couotles oat ot what ie
nowXrook county . The divisional
lines of the new counties will fol
low the principal. , waterways and
will be known as Crook, Deschutes
and Madras ceuntle?. . So far there
haa been no active steps : taken in
regard tp the creation of the' new
counties, but the measures ; are : in
course of preparation and. will " be
introduced in a ehort time. . When
they come before the legislature it
is certain 'that- the fight of
two years ago will be renewed and
that there will be a warm contest
before the question is settled.

licenses will be a thing of the past
after the adjournment of the pres
ent session if J. D. Simmons of Ma
rion county has his way; Ha has
introduced a bill asking that the
law now in force be repealed and
declared to be of no force.
Mr. Simmons would not make bo
strenuous opposition to the bill if
the money resultant from the li
censes wa? put into a fund to in
sure the protection of the game cf
the state, but he does not like to
see it go into the school fund.
"If it protected the game of the

Cincinnati, Jan. 16. The Ohio
River is 51.9 feet this morning and
rising at the rate of two inches an
hour. The weather bureau forecasts
that 56 feet will be reached by
Thursday noon, which etage means
the suspension' of soores of factories
and the abandonment of many
schools, houses and depots and the
demoralization of rail traffic. " '
