SAN FRANCISCO, April 38-Seeretary
of Commerce ' aji'd 'Labor. iefcair, today
read the following telegram to the 'Mayor
and citizens' committee:
"Fort Mason, Cel., April 26. 1606.
"To- the President, "White House,. ."We-sh-lngton,
, J. C. Have -rwactically completed
Inspection of the ruined districts. I don't
believe the loss of life will be ax great
as was anticipated. In my Judgment, It
will .bo impossible to determine the exact
number of deaths, but conservative esti
mates place the number aunot to exceed
"There are about 1000 sufferers In local
hospitals and probably not over 400 are
Feriously injured. No necessity exists at
the present time for 'Tturses or doctors,
and they should not be sent except on
recommendation of General Oreely or Dr.
"As regards industrial and commercial
losses, the conditions are appalling. Fig
ures and distances convey slight concep
tions of realities. Not only have the bus
iness and Industrial houses and establish
ments of one-half million people disap
peared, leaving them destitute "financially
and their means of livelihood temporarily
gone, but tho complicated system of
transportation, indispensable to the dally'
comfort and Interest of one-half million
of people; has been almost totally de
stroyed. The hilly configuration of San
Francisco made movements by street rail
way almost indispensable.
Street Hallways All Useless.
"Over the city's area of twenty-five
miles the entire system of railways was
damaged or destroyed and has not as
yet been operated. The scanty supply of
animals and carriages remaining after the
lire has been largely impressed into civil
and military service in order to prevent
starvation. The entire telegraph and tele,
phono systems were destroyed, making
"Practically every municipal building is
destroyed, forcing the city officials into
scanty quarters, necessarily situated in
localities difficult of access,, owing to dis
tance and lack of transportation.
"Three hundred thousand people were
rendered homeless, and, their ordinary
methods of providing themselves with
food, clothing and shelter being entirely
destroyed, their feeding and sheltering
demanded extraordinary action and en
grossed the attention of everyone as soon
as the Are was checked. Remedial meth
ods adopted and prosecuted with great
efficiency have relieved this great disas
ter. The citizens' committee appointed
by Mayor Schmitx is composed of the
ablest business men of the city, and their
efforts ualiNijJiifcMKrfoUB 'action o an
deWJurwMBsTan'd Introduced systems
of relief which have accomplished won
ders. Denies Reported Friction.
"The efforts of the Mayor and munici
pal officials of the citizens' committee,
and of the regular army and the State
Guard of California, have been practically
as efficient as though the separate au
thorities were under one head. Neither
friction nor reflections have at any time
appeared, and the work of relief has pro
ceeded harmoniously, continuously and ef
"The street railway system is rapidly
approaching such a state of repair as to
promise partial renewal of operations
very soon. The signal corps haB estab
lished a military telegraphic and tele
phonic line, connecting the headquarters
of the army and the Mayor, which are at
Fort Mason, with the Mint, Hall of Jus
tice. District Headquarters at the ferry,
and, every point of special importance.
AVlthout this system communication about
the city would havo been impossible, and
with the National and State authorities
would have "been greatly delayed.
"General Greely, returning from leave,
resumed command Sunday evening and
commends in the highest terms the effi
cient and tireless efforts of General Funs
ton, whose orders, and actions utilized
and inspired the army to most efficient
action in staying the progress of the
flames and saving the remnant of the
city. General Greely's opinion is con
curred in by the Mayor and the citizens'
Water Supply a Problem.
"Most threatening conditions existed as
regards the water supply, but the extra
ordinary efforts on the part of the water
company have remedied the situation',
which is improving from, day to day, so
that physical suffering from lack of water
is Impossible, although It cannot be se
cured in sufficient proportions for sanitary
and Are purposes for some time. It would
appear impossible, but 1 am assured by
General Greely and others that the meth
ods of relief and restoration were so ef
ficient that no person has suffered from
lack of food, water or shelter.
"The question of sanitation is receiving
special attention. The entire city is in
spected daily by four trained mounted
officers who report regularly the situa
tion and necessities.
"The fortifications are practically un.
injured. The real damage was done to
the military buildings at the Presidio and
on Angel Island. Reports indicate that
there was no damage to the buildings on
Alcatraz Island. The army warehouses in
the city were entirely destroyed. The
Mint and Appraisers' buildings are prac
tically Intact. The Sub-Treasury is en
tirely destroyed. Opinions differ as to the
extent of injuries to the iPoetofflce. It is
not believed that any vaults in the Sub
Treasury or any banking institution In
the city have suffered any material dam
age. Trifling: Damage to Postofflee.
"It is almost impossible to give an ac
curate estimate of the cost of repairs
to public buildings, "but from personal in
spection of the buildings and from figures
given we by competent builders I should
say ' that1 the. Appraisers' building would
ci far repairs about $181,000: Mint. 915.

D0WIE RETURNS TO ZI0N
Welcomed by "Wife "While Vollva
Denounces AH Dorrics.
CHICAGO. April 2S. "I are glad to
be home again." 3VIth these words on
nls lips John Alexander Dowle, the
deposed leader of tho Christian Catho
lic Church In America, this afternoon
stepped within the portals .of Shlloh
house, thus completing his much-heralded
entry Into Zlon City afler an
absence of several months, during
which time he Taad been deserted by
n large proportion of his followers and
had been stripped of all ecclesiastical
authority. Mrs. Dowle. the wife df the
"First Apostle," raet him at the door
of Shlloh house and gave him a hearty
DowJc's return to Zlon City was void
of all pomp and ceremony. Only a
handful cf people were at the station
to greet him and the majority of these
were women. He left the Auditorium
Annex, where he had been stopping
since hl return from Mexico, shortly
after 1 O'clock. He was driven to the
Northwestern station, where a private
car had been attached to the regular
2 o'clock train on that road. He was
accompanied bp several of his per
Greeted by Small Crowd.
Tho train bearing Dowle and hi
party arrived at 'Zlon City at 3:45 P. M.
About 750 people, the majority of whom
were women, were gathered at the sta
tion to meet the "First Apostle." As
Dowle alighted from the train, he was
greeted by shouts of "Peace to thee."
He responded with the customary.
"Peace te thee multiplied." Rain, which
had been threatening for some time,
then began to fall, and the crowd with
one accord began to sing. "Showers of
blessing." Under the Bhelter of an
umbrella held by an attendant, Dowle
made his way to a carriage, which
was waiting. Upon reaching the door
of tho carriage, he turned and. lacing
the assembled people, made a short ad
dress. "With all my heart I desire to thank
you for your kind greeting" said he.
"It is not fitting that I should speak
at length at this time I regret that
the afternoon is so showery. I shall
hope to meet you all at our morning
sacrifice imceting for praise and prayer
at 6:30 o'clock and again in the after
noon at 2 o'clock." Dowle then quoted
n stanza from the hymn. "I Stand on
Zion's Mount" Then he cried: "Stand
firm then, rock of my salvation."
"I have dene nothing since I eaw
your faces," he continued, "of which
to be ashamed. Not one of the ac
cusations " made against me Is true,
not one." God bless you. Now I bid
you good-bye. Peace to thee."
He then entered his carriage and
was driven to Shlloh house
Vollva Denounces All Dowlcs.
A meeting was held tonight. In an
address Vollva denounced not only
Dowle. but Mrs. Dowle as well. He
I dp not propose to permit any sin
ner in this movement to escape. Do
not think that Dowle Is the only one
to be called to account. Another one
Is Mrs. Jane Dowle. If she thinks she
is going to stand before this people
without confessing her slnr, she Is
greatly mistaken. In some respects
she is as great a sinner as Dowle. She
is on his side tonight and has been.
The lust in her heart for gold Is as
great as In bin, I say the whole Dowle
family must be swept off the earth.
This statement was roundly applaud
ed. Continuing, Vollva said:
Sucked Blood by People.
"For year that family has sucked
the blood out of this people to satisfy
their lust for fine clothes in order to
make a showing. They have made no
confession and no attempt to repent,
but they still attempt to bluff you.
If Dowle is not Insane, the other word
to brand hlra with Is the word crimi
nal." Vollva will use the college building
as the place of worship tomorrow,
while Dowle holds forth in the taber
nacle, it being the "First Apostle's"
turn to use that bulldlnr-ln -accordance
with the order of the court allowing
the opposing faction the use of the
big meeting bouse oi alternate days.
Dowle has found a fi! nd who is will
ing to lend blm Si.OM.000. according to a
statement given out today by one of the
"faithful" at the Auditorium Annex.
The money wHl t handed over to the
dethroned "EMJah" if he can win a vie
too over Vollva and o clear the title
to the Zlon estate. His attorney. EmU
C Wetten. con Armed the statement.
Gladstone Dowle. according to ru
mens, has been disposed e-f In his father's
will with a soHtnry quarter ef a dollar.
Dowle altered bis wHl a few days ago
and Deacon John A. Lewis was made

troubles of the authorities and to the
discomfort f those sUll residing In San
Francisco. Thousands of these people
crowd the ferry-boat, block the few open j
and seriously interfere with those engaged
In relief work. Today they added to the
terrific Jam at the main ferry depot aad
choked the narrow passages cleared la a
few streets for the passage of vehicle.
They overran ruins of buildings wherever
ssfety would permit, and were absolutely
ruthless in their frantic efforts, to seise

The Government has never been called
upon to 'cope with such conditions as
prevail here, and it is my belief that
the War Department does not fully com
prehend the unusual difficulties under
which we are working. The presence of
federal troops is absolutely necessary for
the good of the city. Neither this State,
the municipal nor the Red Cross au
thorities can adequately perform their
various duties without the assistance of
Not Doing; Police) Daty.
"The Impression seems somehow to
have reached the War Department that
our troops are doing ordinary police duty,
but this of course is an erroneous under
standing of the situation. The troopa
are on duty and acting in nonfunction
with State soldiers, the municipal police
department and the Red Crow, merely
as a moral support, as It were. The Fed
eral troops are subordinate to municipal
control, and In my opinion should be re
tained on duty. In fact, we should have
SOW troops here properly to carry on the
work, instead of the 3E0o now on duty."
Asked what. In his opinion, was re
sponsible for the disinclination to send
more troops here. General Funston said:
Expense Cuts Large Figure.
"That is something I cannot answer
with any degree of posltiveness. but per
haps the question of transportation and
maintenance of such a. great body of men
is a factor. The expense of sending so
many men to this city, aad the cost of
feeding and clothing them. Is necessarily
very great. We have 3600 troops en route
to Saa Francisco. Some of them come
from such distant points as. Fort Sheri
dan, aad the Oovemraeat must bear the
-great expense of bringing them in here."
General A. . Greely was asked: "Do
you think Secretary Taft will order the
withdrawal of the federal troops now on
"I caaaot answer," replied General
Greely. "But I will say that I would
greatly regret such action. We are all
working for the good of San Francisco
and the State of California, and I am
firmly convinced, after a. thorough re
view of the situation, that the regular
troops should be 'kept on duty.
Great Work Soldiers Did.

"I do not know a more dangerous man

who has nothing to do."
"I confess I don't know what wrong
we have done the Filipino in showing him
how wo can make him rich and pros
perous." "How can we expect to do business
with the Orient when we do not admit
the people of that section to do business
In epigrammatic form Luke E. Wright,
the first Ambassador to Japan, told the
Asiatic Association tonight of the Philip
pine problem and America's fight for
commercial supremacy In tho Orient. Ho
pleaded far an abolition of duty from
the Islands and a better treatment of Chi

"I do not mean by this," he said at
the banquet tendered him at the Rainier
Club, "that we should throw the gates
open for an influx of all Chinese, but
how can we expect that our tradesmen
shall profit when we close our gates
against the Chinese? We should admit
the merchants and students, and we
should make our Consular certificates
prima facie evidence of their right to en
ter. This done. I believe there would be
no further delay In our trade relations.
"We must reach out in this country. We
arc manufacturing more than "we can
consume at home. Each year -we are
turning out products that must be- sold
abroad. We have gone beyond the period
when we can find a market in Europe.
We must consult the Far East, and I
hope that we will recognize their plaint.".
"I was astonished to sec that a Cali

Introduction of Philippine products with
out duty and that other representatives
from the Northwest said that sugar,
hemp and other articles should not be
Imported here. We need those articles,
and we should encourage tlfe Philippines

Basotfess Attacks TJojb 'tie Rep
lUtion and Business of ar
'PhysicIaifAre Without Ayail.
- There lives In Buffalo, N. Y., a man
who is widely known as the proprietor
of the Pierce Family Medicines. Dr.
Pierce has lately come into added pub
licity because of the unwarranted at
tack made upon his medicines by a
certain periodical, which charged that
they were not what they were repre
sented to be by the doctor He
promptly met that attack by sulns the
owners of the journal In (question for
;3W,W damages. Upon the filing of
this suit a retraction was printed by
the editors, who- acknowledged that
their statement was entirely without
foundation, but notwithstanding this -covert
attacks have still been made
upon Dr. Pierce and his business.
Dr. Pierce's business, which has. its
center At Buffalo, where- he -has a large
laboratory known as the World's Dis
pensary, for the manufacture of his
medicines the "Favorite Prescription"
and the "Golden Medical Discovery"
and a hospital, known as the Invalids'
Hotel, for the treatment of various ail
ments by a large staff of physicians
and surgeons. Is the result of thirty
eight years of honorable and honest
dealing with the public. He, Is a man
of honor, respected in the community
and enjoying the confidence of his fellow-citizens.
They know that he is
neither a quack nor a charlatan, but
that he has attained success In life be
cause he deserves it.
Comley's History of New York State,
containing biographical sketches of the
men who "have given wealth, stamina
and character" to the Empire State,
gives .a sketch of the distinguished phy
sician, from which the following brief
extracts are made: "Every nation
owes Its peculiar character, its pros
perityIn brief, everything that dis
tinguishes It as an Individual nation
to the few men belonging to' it who
have the courage to- step beyond the
boundaries prescribed by professional
tradition or social customs
Of this class of men the medical -profession
has furnished a distinguished .
example In the successful and Justly
celebrated physician, Dr. It. V. Pierce,
of Buffalo. N. Y., and any history
treating of the industries or the Empire
State would be Incomplete without a
sketch of his useful and earnest, work.
. . . . Specially educated for the
profession, he early supplemented his
studies by extensive and original re
search In its several departments. De
voting his attention to certain special
ties of the science he has so carefully
investigated, he has been rewarded In
a remarkable degree. In these special
ties he has become a recognized leader.
Not a few of the remedies prescribed
by him have, it Is said, been adopted
and prescribed by physicians In their
private practice. His pamphlets and
larger works have been received as
useful contributions to medical knowl
edge That his success is real
is evidenced by the fact that his repu
tation as a man and physician does not
deteriorate; and the fact that there is
a steadily Increasing demand . for his
medicines proves that they are not nos
trums, but reliable remedies for dis
ease." Dr. Pierce's establishment at Buffalo
is one of the show points of that flour
ishing city, and is well worth a visit
Just to see how-modern -medicines, even
though they be "patent," are .com
pounded "with the' utmost skill by
trained chemists and on the most sci
entific principles. It Is also worth while
for the purpose "of seeing the methods
followed by which each applicant for
aid, whether he be a correspondent or
a patient at the hospital, secures the
care of eminent specialists In medicine
and surgery. Once these things are
seen It will be speedily acknowledged
by the most skeptical that all patent
medlclne businesses are not the frauds
which some careless papers bave de
clared them to he.
