FAIRBANKS. Alaska, July 7. The

here shook the whole town at 18 o'clock
last night, the earth rocking continu
ously for 40 seconds.
Less violent shocks occurred through
out the night.
Louis Anderson, foreman of a mine on
Dome Creek, was killed. He was suf

was among the Indians of the fishing
' villages along the Alaska peninsula.
Following the first day of the erup
tion, when the volcanoes, after a strug
gle, blew out the rocks that clogged
their throats, the discharge has been
only of ashes, with no lava. The so
called ashes may be duplicated by re
ducing to powder the pumice stone to
be obtained at any drugstore. Fine
particles of volcanic dust have been
known to float in the air for many
weeks and to be carried half way
around the world. This ash Is com
posed principally of silica, but contains
also all the chemical elements required
for plant growth, and consequently acts
as a fertilizer of the soil.

The revenue cutters, which this year
are not obliged to protect the seal rook

make note of all changes in the ocean
flow, a modification of Alaska climate
having been noted during the past year
and this phenomenon being ascribed to
a shifting of warm ocean currents be
cause of lifting of portions of the sea
bottom. Geologists say that the Aleu
tian Islands, which stretch from the
mainland of Alaska In a long curve to
Kamchatka, are the tops of submerged
mountains: that these mountains are
slowly rising, and that in time Bering
Sea will be Inclosed, and later will be

tions of Bering Sea are favorite resorts
of cod and other fish, apd the Govern

the outlook for new "banks." These
cod banks give employment to a large

tions of Unparalleled Force.
LAWRENCE, Kan, July 7. Heavy
earth shocks. 70 minutes in duration,
were recorded on the seismograph at
the University of Kansas, beginning
at 1:16 o'clock this morning. The cen
ter of the disturbance was estimated
at 2800 miles' distance.
The vibration marks of the heaviest
part of the shocks were three and
three-fourths Inches across the instru
ment, the ' most violent known since
Its installation, five years ago. The
waves were heavier In the east and
west than in the north and south.
Professor H. P. Cady, in charge of
the observatory, said there were two
probable centers one to the northwest
In Alaska, near the recent volcanic dis
turbances, and the other on the north
west coast of South America, in Co
lombia or Ecuador. Since the seismo
graph does not record the exact direc
tion of the shocks, it Is Impossible
further to Identify their location.

Some of the Eastern newspapers have

has some supporters for the position, he
Is strongly opposed by others. His po

there is a strong opinion to the effect
