SAN FRANCISCO. April 29. (guff
Correspondence.) The Found of crack
ing rifles a week ago has given way
today to the cheerful mut-ic of pounding
hammcra. The situation changes her so
rapidly day by day that it is hard to
keep up with the movement.
One day nothing goes but the Gov
ernor's pass, the Red Cross is displayed
on every automobile, there is an em
bargo on the ferry, the nre Is still
burning, people are pouring from the
city. The next day ferries are free,
the streets are shut while dangerous
walls arc dynamited, the parks are
plied high with provisions.
The thfa-d day traffic Is resumed, papses
are no longer necessary. The crowds on
Jerry are as composed as before the
earthquake days, the automobiles fly
banners of building committees and
sewer inspectors, several lines of
street-ears are running, charging no
faros, all the talk is reconstruction.
On the fourth day you pay your fare
wherever you go. The little shops in
the unburncd portion of the city, from
which the original stock of goods was
t onfls-mted, arc opening up. Everyone

The Correct Tiling hi Clothes.
San Francisco is too resourceful not
to make the most of a bad situation.
In a larger way It hopes to beautify
Hie city, but even in smaller matters
It is taking advantage of the condi
tions. Your swell nowadays wears his
breeches in his high-laced shoes, Ton
njuih style, and an Army shirt with
collar turned up. or riding breeches
and a corduroy hat. it is quite the
thing to have red eyes and smoky
face; it shows you can cook over an
open tire in the street. You canvot
have a bath, so cleanliness Is entirely
rut of fashion.
What has struck me most forcibly
Jn these past ten days Is the quickness
with which each new phase of the sit
uation has been taken usTnd handled.
The greatest problem of all stares the
people of San Francisco In the face
now. and all arc talking about It how
to rebuild the civilization. Men must be
jnado to work, whether they like the
new work or not, the unworthy must
bo cut off from supplies, yet no hard
ship must be wrought, and many thou
sands of women, ten days ago inde
pendent, must be looked after.
Money None Too Plentiful.
It seemed at first as if there were
too much money coming here for re
lief, but it will not provo so In the end.
oven with the strictest economy. All
parochial Institutions are burned and
the people who supported these estab
lishments are ruined. And then the
shiftless class, always ready to be sup
ported, have lived bettor of late than
ever before, and ask nothing better
than the continuance- of present con
ditions. They must be taught' self
eupport all over again.
Organization, coming of itself
through each one doing the work that
lays at his hand, has now assumed a
permanent form. The civil and mili
tary forces, dangerously near to clash
ing ut times, are holding love feasts,
and it is no longer a question of any
expedient, but of the best expedient.
The charitable work is now center

SAN FRANCISCO. April 23. The
second Sunday since the fateful April
IS has served as a clearing-house In
the affairs of this ruined city. "While
the old-tlmo quietude is missing, the
day has witnessed less of the excite
ment, confusion and clamor of its Im

munity at large has been enabled to
make a calmer survey of the situation
and to enter into a mere Intelligent

Advantage Taken by Unscrupulous.
In the first days of thf fire, little
or no attempt was made to keep -heck
on foodstuffs, the main Idea being to
provide against want, and It was nat
ural that under this excusable hap

should arise. But even when the lines
were more tightly drawn, the unscru
pulous persons continued to take ad
vantage of the general distress, and
It was then realized that the salvation
of the situation rested with the Army.
So the officials of this branchof the
Federal Government were called upon
to engage- In an unprecedented service.
That success will doubtless meet their

the allowance in a measure is based on
the army rations.
At" a meeting today, at which were
present James D. . Phelan. chairman of
the finance committee, and some noted
lawyers and " bankers, a plan ' was
broached for financing th city, which
it is hoped will meet -with the Indorse
ment, of the general committee.- it being
estimated that the city has suffered a
loss .of at least OX0CiX9 hy fire, .it is
conceded that there Is ' not sufficient
money In San Francisco to reconstruct
the .city and that the .people here must
look elsewhere for" the funds to rehabili
tate the destroyed city. t
Plan to Borrou Money.
- Mr. Phelan said that if money Is bor
rowed through ordinary" chanpcls the' rate
of Interest will add a burden "io neces
sarily Increased taxation thalwlli;be too
heavy to bear. The plan of Mr. Phelan
Is to frame legislation to present to Con
gress, asking Uie United States to Indorse
the proposed bonds of San Francisco with
the guarantee of the Government. The
city will be able to go Into the financial
markets of the world and borrow the
needed money at 2 or 2 per cent, the
bonds to run for CO years and constitute
a mortgage on the best portion of the
city. Mr. Phelan asserted that such
legislation would not be new in Congress.
It was by virtually such a measure that
the Central Pacific and the Union Pacific
Railroads were built and more recently
by like- legislation that railways in the
Philippines became assured to the people
of the Islands.
Red Cross Completing System.

of life to the homeless and needy con
tinues with more system and with un
abated -energy, but despite that care of
the officials at the head of the bureaus
complaints are received frequently of
oversights In supplying stations, but these
errors are quickly rectified. Tomorrow
the Red Cross people expect to have
their Individual ticket system In operation
and this will facilitate the plans of the
army In preventing abuses.
The number of people without substan
tial shelter has been reduced to a min
imum. The housing committee reported
today that Its work had been almost com
pleted, the applications for accommoda
tions having ceased. The work of this
committee has been lessened by the num
erous departures of people In tents to
other parts of the State. Religious serv
ices were held In the open air In many
of the saved districts today, and in
churches that were pronounced safe for
immediate use throngs gathered to listen
to the sermons of the clergy.

"WOODBURN Or.. April 3.-(3taff Cor

at the scene of the man hunt near "Wood-
burn is being anxlouslr awaited by tho
authorities and the posses. The dogs ar
expected from Portland on the mornlnsr

only- at a great disadvantage: they mktht,
easily pass within a dozen feet of their
quarry, and not know it.
The hounds will be kept in leash so
that the posse may keep close behind
them. A detachment of coolheaded, cour
ageous men who can be depended upon
to take chances against the outlaw will
foltow the dogs. It is now utdversally
bellevcd that Smith is In the brush, east
of Woodburn, as stated yesterday, and
that he Is within a very few miles of
Xo Developments Yesterday.
Today has been productive of no results
whatever in the hunt for Smith. Up to
10 o'clock tonight there has been no au
thentic report of his whereabouts, and
the authorities are at sra.. Seemingly the
earth ha.s opened and swallowed up the
outlaw. It had been confidently expected
that a fresh trail would develop during
last night. Being without food and shel
ter, there seemed every reason to believe
Smith would attempt-to secure provisions.
A largo force of armed men accordingly
-stood In readiness all morning to leave
"Woodburn at an instant's notice. Tele
phone wires were kept busy with Inquiries
of adjoining settlements and several men
were detailed to visit remote farmhouses
for possible word of the outlaw- Still
other parties of armed men beat the
brush In the vicinity where a man. sup
posed to have been Smith, was fired on
Several False Alarms. .
Notwithstanding these measures, there
were no Important developments. Sev
eral reports of Smith's whereabouts were
followed out to no advantage, proving
false, alarms In each instance.
Either Smith Is lying dead In the woods
a HUtcide with his own weapon, or Is hid
den. In pome dense strip of brush, which B
has. not yet been hit upon by tho posses.
Thls,Js the current belief in Woodburn
todayIt Is also generally believed that
theesperado. dead or alive. Is in tha
wooaa.to the east of Woodburn. It isto
this ''point that the authorities are now
turning their full attention. All other
clews and trails have been dropped, hav
ing failed to materialize anything definite.
While smair posses are scattered in
every ialrectlon. most of the man hunters
have returned to Woodburn and arc be
ing thown out Into the thick woods whore ;
the suspect was fired upon. Parties of '
three, four and five worked in this vicin- ;
ity all day.
AVoodbnrn Asks Vengeance.
That Smith sha.ll not escape all Wood- J"
burn Is determined. He could not have r, ;
shot down two men more beloved in this ,-.
section than Captain O. D. Henderson and ' '
Sheriff J. S. Shaver. Friends of the two
men are largely represented among tho
heavily-armed hunter? In the field, and
they mean to follow the desperado to the
ends of the earth, so they declare.
"I have no fear that Smith will, escapev" ;
said a Woodburn man today. "My only
fear is that he will kia himself or that
