OREGON RBLJE1F BUREAU, Oakland,
May 8. J. N. Teal, representing the Port
land relief committee, arrived this morn
ing and spent the entire day In San Fran
cisco. In addition to making the rounds
of the hospitals and the relief camp es-
laDusnea oy tne Oregon Relief Bureau,
jur. leai discussed affairs with Dr.
Ifevlne, head of the Red Cross Society:
General Greely and General Funston, but
In spite of a hard day's work was unable
to determine the best course for the
Portland relief committee to pursue in
expending the balance of the money now
in us nanas. Tomorrow Mr. Teal will
talk with Chairman Phelan and other
prominent members of the San Francisco
Cannot Describe Scene.
like other visitors to the ruins of San
Francisco. Mr. Teal was sickened and
awed at the terrible sights he saw. He
was In a measure prepared to see what
had been San Francisco In ruins, but he
was not expecting to see the devastation
of the vast acreage over which the Are
had spread Its fiery tongue.
"It Is useless to attempt to express by
mere words," said Mr. Teal on his re
turn to Oakland tonight, "what a terrible
calamity has befallen beautiful San Fran
Cisco. There is no way to describe it. It
la & sight one must see before comDre
hendlng what a terrible thing has be
fallen the city.
Itelier System Perfect.
"From conversations I had with Gen
eral Funston and Dr. Devine, I am con
vinced that the distribution of supplies
has reached a splendid system, one which,
as time passes, will become more perfect.
In my talks with physicians I learn that
there Is comparatively little sickness In
the city. The sanitary conditions, 1
learn, are about as perfect as possible.
There will be. I am told, no danger of
' disease breaking out It the people will
follow Instructions and boll the water
John Were Badly Injured.
Testerday I told of the search of the
death records for John Were. Today de
veloped the fact that he is alive. Mr.
Were walked into the Oakland head
quarters, having heard that we were
searching for him. He was frightfully
injured by a falling chimney which
crashed through the roof and landed on
his neck and chest. He was dug from the
ruins and taken to the emergency hos
pital unconscious. His neck In still so
badly Injured that he cannot straighten
up and ho still suffers severe pains in his
chest. Mr. -Were owes his life to the
pillow upon which he was sleeping. He
was furnished with some necessary
clothing by the Oregon Relief Bureau.
Courage of Portland Xurses.
The courage and training of the Port
land nurses stationed at the Presidio
hospital were admirably shown this morn
ing, when' a tire which destroyed the
hospital laundry threatened all of the
buildings. When the alarm was sounded.
Dr. Marie D. Kqul, also of Portland,
called the nurses together and ordered
them to their stations. Quietly and with
out the slightest confusion each nurse
prepared her patients for removal from
the wards and stood by ready to act
when ordered. Fortunately the fire was
checked and it was not necessary to re
move any of them.
While this was going on some of the
Presidio nurses forgot their patients in
their excitement and desire to save their
WILD 0RGIEAJ SAKHALIN
v Thousands of Drunken Convicts
Burn and Loot Buildings.
ST. PETERSBURG. April 22. Belat
ed letters from Alexandrovsky Post,
North Sakhalin, bring a wild picture
tit the three weeks of murder and loot
following the proclamation of peace
and the evacuation-by the Japanese to
the northern half of the Island.
Th. wilder spirits among the prison
ers, criminal and political, who form
practically the entire population of
Alexandrovsky Post, broke loose from
all restraint, applied the torch to pub
lic and private buildings, drank them
selves into a wild fury and vented
their passions in pillage and murder.
Owing to the fierce October storms,
the ships containing the troops dis
patched to take possession of the
island were driven off the coast, and
Colonel ValyuyeR, the Military Gov
ernor, landed with an escort of only
60 men, a scanty force with which to
face hundreds of desperate convicts
during the three weeks before fur
ther troops were able to land.
These convicts prepared a warm wel-.
com for the new Governor, setting;
Are the day he landed to the police
headquarters and the great Alexan
drovsky Post prison, 10 separata build
ings, with accommodations for thou
sands of prisoners.
Tliaae were completely consumed,
the Japanese having allowed the flra
engines to become useless, but by
the strenuous exertions of the Rus
sian and Japanese soldiers, who
worked side by side and patrolled the
city to prevent further Incendiarism,
the Are was Anally checked.
' The next day the Japanese troops
returned, having first sold their ac
cumulated stocks of provisions and
liquor at Incredibly low prices. Casks
of sak," ordinarily sold for 85. went
for 10 cents, and cases of tinned meat,
containing 76 pounds, 60 cents. One
hundred and seventy-five tons of rice
and buckwheat were disposed of in a
lump for 1100.
Everybody became drunk, and with
provisions enough for the Winter and
no necessity for work, many of tham
kept up the debauch for weeks.
To protect the city, with his little
Harrison and the prisons destroyed.
