THE EARTH SHOOK FOR.
ONE HUNDRED MILES
Rosalia Encounters Fields of Icebergs
Shook Off Taku. Glacier.
SEATTLE, Sept. 21. The steamer
Rosalie bears upon her stem a mute
evidence of the general shaking up
which has occurred In the north.
When the steamer crossed the entrance
of Taku Inlet she encountered fields of
Icebergs through which she had to
pick her way and going Into one of
these floes the steamer struck her nose
with force enough to break away a
portion ot the stem and Iron plating
that binds It down. The unusual
quantity of ice Is due to breaking
away of the face of Taku glacier.
The Yakutat's and KUnket's and
other tribes fell on their faces and im
plored the great spirit to stay his
w rath and let his anger subside. The
disturbance was felt hundreds of
miles Inland and was very violent.
The Rosalie brings $150,000 In gold dust
and 100 rassengers.
