San Francisco Recovers Her

SAN FRANCISCO. June 8. (Special
Correspondence.) Life in what was
once the gayest city in America
is attaining toward the normal
once more. If the water were
good, San Francisco would be today an
attractive place to live in. People
have always Jived here mainly because
they liked it, and they are remaining
for the same reason. Let Chicago or
New York have a similar catastrophe,
and no one would remain who could
not make money by so doing. Here
the larger portion of the population is
now living on savings bank accounts,
and many have no immediate prospect
of better employment than piling
brick, yet they do not even consider
the possibility of leaving the city.
There are now over 200,000 persons
resident in San Francisco, and at least
100,000 former San Franciscans coming
to the city from surrounding towns
each day, all of whom will return to
live as soon as they can find a roof to
Begin to Enjoy Life.
These people are light of heart, the
world is very beautiful to them and
full of delights; even in distress they
laughed at their plight, and, now that
active resumption of business has be
gun and money is moving once more,
they are beginning really to enjoy life
once more. They take up every amuse
ment that Is offered them, and noth
ing will pay better than th high-class
restaurants and the theaters, which
are being rushed to completion in the
unburned section of the city. At the
Chutes, where the Orpheum has
opened, there is not standing room to
be had. Day and night all the cars are
Jammed with people going to one place
or another. Everyone Is always on the
move, the same old San Francisco.
Rough and Ready Buildings.
This resourceful people has taken
the short cut to regained prosperity,
and is throwing up any kind of build
ing in which to carry on business.
Hundreds of one-story clapboard and
corrugated iron buildings have been
built In the last four weeks, some of
them covering large tracts of ground.
They are scattered through every por
tion of the burned district. I have
been told that the large jobbers, both
foreign and domestic, have carried on
their business regardless of every
thing, and have only missed a few
shipments. By so doing they have pre
vented a loss of business, which would
otherwise have been taken by Port
land and Puget Sound cities. All freight
consigned to San Francisco has been
rushed through, and this facilitated
the handling of business. The large
business houses In consequence will be
forced as rapidly as possible to build
Manufacturers, printers and retailers
have all placed orders for machinery and
materials in the East, which will enable
them to begin business shortly on as large
a scale as formerly. When sufficient time
has elapsed for these orders to be filled
the city will again be in full swing. If
those men had waited for the Insurance
adjusters to finish with them, they would
probably never have had the courage to
place their orders. As It is, they will
have to pull out somehow, and they will
Great Test of Loyalty.
It Is well enough to talk about the fine
spirit San Franciscans 'have shown, but
their loyalty has been given its final test
and it has rung true. When the banks
opened there was not even the semblance
of a run upon them. Instead, men went
to their banks and deposited what little
money they had, and have been drawing
it out J5 at a time, as they have needed
( or ' many meanwhile it has been a.
struggle to obtain the bare necessities of
life. Most were . too proud to remain
longer on relief rations than they could
help. Men have been given an opportunity
to show what they were made of. and the
result has been remarkable. Men who
had never touched a tool have taught
themselves to be good mechanics; clerks
have become contractors, stenographers
have turned cook, frivolous women have
risen to the occasion and shown them'
selves to be good wives. But those unfor
tunates of limited capacity have found It
hard. They could not "make good." Such
has been the plight of many women cut
off from their salary or Income, generally
with some one else to support. Many
have even been forced to seek dishonor.
More Interesting Than Ever.
Taking everything into consideration.
San Francisco just now is more interest
ing than ever before. The life of the city
has been laid bare, and It has proved it
self to be far better than Its detainers
have credited it with being. Moreover,
there are big things going on. Sweeping
movements, public and general, have been
in progress from the first day after the
earthquake, and these have been growing
in strength and taking varied forms as
conditions passed from one phase to an
other. Even a month ago, when it looked
as if San Francisco were gasping its last
breath, there were tremendous movements
under the surface which are now coming
to the top. The subtle change of events
from day to day is fascinating to watch
and will be during the few years It takes
to restore the city which took 60 to build
The Newspaper Reporter.
Rutland (Vt.) News.
The status of the newspaper report
er varies to a large degree with the
locality. The reporter in his. work, and
the reporter individually, is steadily
becoming a more Important factor in
the every-day life of any community
where his services are required. It is
perhaps In the Btnaller cities, the
"country towns," that his personality
counts for the most, although In every
place he is steadily and surely being
lifted from practically the oblivion in
which In years past public sentiment
and lack of understanding of his work
,and value has placed him. The Mont
pelier Journal pays a beautiful tribute
to a reporter well known throughout
Vermont, W. A. Shay, who succumbed
to pneumonia. The following excerpt
is reproduced, inasmuch as It applies
not only to the subject of the tribute,
but in a general way is descriptive of
the life and work of many of his pro
fession: "His success was yours. He
worked with vigor, not to furnish his
quota of items for the paper, but to
get all there was going of interest for
the people to read. Enthusiasm in his
work was one of his characteristics.
Tou have seen him every day as he
plodded on his dally round. He has
greeted you at the railroad station, on
the streets, in the stores and offices,
and has made this world a little, yes, a
good deal, brighter and happier for
having lived. You have laughed at his
wit over your teacups, you have seen
the pathos which many times marked
his writing, when his heart was
touched. He has been a part of the
city. He has known you through and
through, has written the obituary no
tices of your friends, has rejoiced with
you in your Joy and sorrowed with you
in your grief. Who can tell what an
Influence his writings which for years
have passed down to the files have
hid? He has done his duty cheerfully.
and has finished. His long-time famil
iar form on the streets will be seen no
more. He haR laid down his pencil."
RACE ACROSS THE PACIFIC
THREE YACHTS WILL START AT
Weather Promises to Be Fine at San
Pedro, and Fleet Will Accompany
the Vessels to Sea.
SAN PEDRO, Cal., June 10. Lying
quietly at anchor In the lea of the Govern
ment breakwater In the outer harbor are
the three crack ocean racers that will
start at noon tomorrow on the first trans
pacific yacht race ever sailed under the
auspices of the South Coast Yacht Club,
of San Pedro.
The weather Is fine, and there is prom
ise of a good sailing breeze for the atart.
The entries for the big event are La Pa
loma, defender for the Hawaiian Yacht
Club: the Anemone, of the New York
Yacht Club, which also sails under the
colors of the Southeast Yacht Club, of
this city, and the Lurllne, of the South
Coast Yacht Club.
Ia Paloma, which arrived only yester
day from San Francisco, has been put in
condition and will be under the command
of Commodore C. W. McFarland, of the
Hawaiian Yacht Club. She is schooner
rigged and has a length of only 47 feet,
but showed her ability to make fast time
across the Pacific In her recent trip to
San Francisco, when she won over the
F. C. Allen by making the distance of 2R92
miles in 29 days. She is backed heavily
by the Islanders.
The Lurllne will be sailed by Commodore
Sinclalre, of the South Coast Yacht Club,
and is also schooner-rigged and has a
length of 91 feet. Her backing is prin
cipally along the Pacific Coast.
The Anemone is the largest yacht of
the three, having a length of 112 feet. She
is ketch-rlgsred and will be sailed by CUp
taln Llndsbury, who will be accompanied
by her owner. C. L. Tutt, of Colorado
Springs. She will be backed by Eastern
ers. The start of the race across the Pacific
will be accompanied by 17 yachts of the
South Coast Yacht Club, which will stay
with the course of the racers 30 miles,
then return around Santa Catalina Islands
and thence back to the point of starting.
SENSATIONS OF A WORM
Being Cut In Two Has Little Effect
on the Squirmer.
Kansas City Star.
Some remarkable experiments have
been carried on to prove whether the low
er animals suffer pain or sensations of
any kind when injured. The most strik
ing of these experiments were made on
the common earthworm. If such a low
animal be divided at Its middle trans
versely only the posterior half shows
those squirming and Jerking movements
which, anthropomorphically viewed, seem
to Indicate pain; the anterior half (con
taining the brain) crawls, as ordinarily,
away. Now, If each of these halves be
halved again the posterior segment of
each squirms, while the anterior halves
crawl away. This same process may be
continued with precisely like result until
the pieces are no longer large enough to
crawl indoptVdently. This striking phe
nomenon Is explained In part by the two
sets of muscular fbers In the worm, one
longitudinal, causing the squirming and
Jerking, and the other circular, which
produce the crawling. Why In the pos
terior segments the former set should be
stimulated and in the anterior the latter
set Professor Norman says he does not
know. For its purpose the experiment
seems conclusive. The abdomen of a her
mit crab may be cut in two without any
"but a very slight response" from any
remaining movable organ. "Limulus"
stops a few seconds when four or five
hundred abdominal segments are cut
away, then proceeds quietly breathing as
before. Its order of events is, regularly,
cessation of breathing, flexion of abdo
men, pause, extension of abdomen, , res
piratory movements. "Geophilus'' cut In
two In the middle continues its crawling,
the front half going forward and the rear
half backward. Millipedes divided while
walking do not hasten nor stop nor Jerk.
Dragon files lose parts of their abdomens
without any appreciable change in position.
A Bucket-Shop Tragedy.
In the Summer of 1903 Ridgway Bow
ker, then more than 60 years old, had
saved $5000 from his wages as a type
setter in a daily newspaper office. There
was no dishonest penny among those dol
lars. Nor was there taint of dishonesty
in the man who had saved them. For
his wife and for his nine children Bowker
had worthy aspirations. He wanted to
do better by them than his scant earnings
had made possible; he wanted to leave
them secure from want.
While reading a Philadelphia newspaper
famed for moral tone and intelligence,
Mr. Bowker, whose home is in Camden,
N. J., came across an advertisement.
. . . It was a small tragedy and soon
over. Ridgway Bowker, savings and
home gone, and family brought to penury,
found work as a laborer in a Federal
building in Philadelphia. In going to nd
from his work he walks six miles each
day, without overcoat and gloves, even
In severe Winter weather; he is too poor
to buy luxuries. His salary is , $60 a
month. With his 60 wasted years behind
him, he has faced the world poor and
become a hero for the sake of "one of
the best families God ever gave a man."

a valuable guarantee for peace. By the
visit Emperor William paid me a few
days ago, our intimate and friendly rela
tions again were placed on record, and
marked by the same feelings of trust as
our relations with our ally, Italy, with
which we find ourselves In gratifying ac
cord on matters affecting us in common."
Referring to Russia and the Balkans,
he said that although the situation In
the Balkans showed many defects, it was
undoubtedly improved and that above all
it had been found possible to avoid more
serious complications. He expressed sat
isfaction that peace had been declared
by Russia and Japan, "thanks to the un
selfish mediation of President Roosevelt,"
and for the settlement at AJgeclras of the
difficulty between Germany and France
over Morocco, "to which our mediatory
action contributed not the least part."
"As in the past,' the Emperor con
tinued, "the preservation of the peace of
Europe and above all In the monarchy
will continue in the future to be the
dominant idea of our foreign policy in
dealing with international affairs."
Emperor Francis Joseph announced
that credits would be submitted for the
purchase of arms and war materials for
the more speedy construction of war
ships and armament.
The reading of Emperor Francis
Joseph's speech from the throne today
was attended by exciting incidents. After
listening to the speech the delegations

At the conclusion of the meeting a mob,
estimated by some to number 20,000,

These rascals so closely Identified with

too old for the Interior Department and
was breaking up. What a grand Secre

How many broad acres of arable, grazing,

jails were not large enough in his vigor

Not long ago Mr. Hitchcock was anx

expression. His 70 years sat on him light
