The dreadful earthquake shock came
itbont warning at precisely 6:13
’clock this morning, its motion appar-
ntly being from east to west. A t first

stricken and rnshed into the streets,
moat of them in their night attire.
They were met by showers of falling
buildings, bricks, cornices and walls.
Many were instantly crashed to death,
while others were dreadfully mangled.
Those who remained indoors generally
escaped with tbeir lives, though scores
were hit bv detached plaster, pictures
and articles thrown to the floor by the
shcck. It is believed that more or less
loss was sustained by nearly every fam­
ily in the city.
Telegraph and telephone communi­
cation was shut off for a time.
Western Union was put completely out
of business, and the Postal company
was the ouly one that managed to get a
wire out of the city. About 10 o’ clock
even the Postal was forced to suspend
in San Francisco. Electric power was
stopped and street cars did not run.
Railroads and ferry boats also ceased
Today’ s experience has been a testi­
monial to the modern steel building.
A score of these structures were iu
coarse of erection, and not one of these
suffered. The completed modern build­
ings were also immune from harm by
earthquake. The bandings that col­
lapsed were all flimsy wooden and old-
fashioned brick structures.
The burned district extends from the
water front south of Market street to
Mission street and west to Eleventh
street. The fire extends out Hayes and
M cAllister streets nearly to Fillmore,
and from the water front along Market
to Montgomery and north from the wa­
ter front to New Montgomery street.
Manufactories, hotels, wholesale houses
and residences, comprising the princi­
pal part of the business section, have
been destroyed. The city hall, a struc­
ture costing $7,000,000, was first wreck­
ed by-the earthquake and then destroy­
ed by fire. The Palace hotel, valued
at $3,000,000, also was burned.
beautiful Claus Hpreckels building at
Third and Market streets was gutted.
The Rialto building and dozens of oth­
er costly structures were also destroyed.
The H all of Jastice is threatened, and

The Examiner
and Call buildings are gone and the
Croker building, across the street from
the Palace hotel, is on fire.

It is impossible to give a list of the

Oakland, April 19.— At 11 o’clock
this morning San Francieco ia a mass
of mine and the flames continue the
work of destruction, obliterating the
few remaining habitations.
There is
no water and the city seems doomed.
Dynamite has failed to check the fire.
Oakland has been placed under martial
law. The Han Pablo ferry was sunk
by flying debris. A ll night the heav­
ens were lighted by the light of the
vast conflagration.
This morning a
mass of smoke marks the continunce of
the destruction amid srenea of unspeak­
■) able horror. The estimated loss in Han
Francisco w ill reach from $150,000,000
to $200,000,000 in the town.
The limits of the fire at this hour are

Steel Structures Only Had the Inner
W oodw ork Burned Out.
Han Francisco,
A pril 23.— Today
property-owners have had an opportu­
nity to inspect some of their holdings,
and in a measure -to ascertain what
damage had been done. The new mod­
ern steel buildings were found to be al­
most intact. In every instance it seem­
ed that the earthquake had not dam­
aged them. The steel frames were in
perfect plumb and as strong as ever.
Cornices and fancy trimmings fell, but
that was all. Even when the fire swept
through them, only the woodwork was
The Fairmount Hotel on Nob H ill
w ill be rushed to completion; the Claus
6preckels building on
Market and
Third streets will be occupied within a
few days. The Union Trust building
on Montgomery and Market street has
only lost the interior woodwork, and as
soon as men can put in the lumber it
w ill be ready for occupancy. The 8t.
Francis Hotel is in the same category,
and the work of renovating the interior
w ill soon be commenced. An inspec­
tion of the Call building at Third and
Market streets disclosed the fact that
several floors were in good condition
and could, after slight repairs, be used
as formerly.
The new Monadnock, on Market
street next to the Palace H o'el, was
found to be in firstclaee condition, even
the woodwork in the inferior being in
tact, and the owner, Herbert E. Law,
announced tonight that within ten days
be would he renting offices in this
building. The Monadnock is a large
structure of steel and brick almost com­
pleted when the fire came. Marble
and lumber have been ordered from
L/w Angeles, and a big force of men
will rush the building to completion.
Structural Material for Bay City May
Be Mftcje Abroad.
Pittsburg, Pa., 3 p ril 23.— According
to Pittsburg steel men the rebuilding
of Han Francisco may be greatly retard­
ed on account of the inability of Pitts­
burg steel m ills to supply structural
shapes for the new city. The Carnegie
Steel Company and the Jones <k Laugh-
lin Compnay, the big independent con­
cerns, are already so crowded that they
have practically cloeed their order
books of delivery of building material
within eight months’ time.
Never before in the history of struc­
tures ha? there been such a demand for
material as this year, and it is feared
that it w ill be well nigh impossible for
ths mills to take on additional work.
According to the local steel men the
San Francisco people will be compelled
to go to Great Britain and Germany for
a large amount of their building mate­
The mills of Germany are busy at
the pres* nt time, and will be able to
take on but little additional work.
Those of Great Britain, however, will
be able to handle a great many of the
orders. On account of the high freight
rates from the east to the Pacific Coast
the foreign steel mills w ill he able to
deliver structural shapes at Han Fran­
cisco as cheap and probably cheaper
than the local mills w ill be able to do.
The Pennsylvania and Lackawanna
Steel Companies and the Illinois Steel
Company w ill be able to handle some
of the work. I t is believed that the lo­
cal mills w ill, if possible, attempt to
put aeide some of their present orders,
in order to accommodate the more ur­
gent work for Han Francisco.
New San Francisco Soon to Rise
on Site of Old
Only Deficiency in Supplies Is Lack
o f Variety— People Are Fed in
San Francisco, April 24.— The new
San Francisco, which will rise from the
ashes of the old, was in its first stages
of rebuilding today. After five days of
confusion and
effort on the part of citizens of Califor
nia’s metropolis, the great task of shel­
tering, feeding and otherwise caring for
the homeless thousands, complete order
bae been re-established and attention
turned to the future.
Throughout the great business dis­
trict, where the devastation of the
flames was the most complete, walls
were being razed, buildings that had
not disintegrated before the intense
heat were being inspected with a view
to reoccupancy and ground was being
cleared even for the immediate con­
struction of some sort of building in
which to resume business at the earli­
est poseible time.
In short, confidence has been restor­
ed. The aseurance of the insurance
companies, the measures taken by the
financial institutions, the prompt and
reassuring word that had reaehed the
business men of Han Francisco from
Eastern financial centers—all the*.e
things went to clear away any feeling
of uncertainty that might have existed
in the minds of the timid that Han
Francisco would not again be what it
was— the great center of population
and business of the Pacific Coast.
The people were fed today in a thor
oughly businesslike and
manner. From the water front, where
the boats loaded with provisions dock
ed, there was an endless procession of
carts and drays carrying food to the
scores of
throughout the city and parks. At
these stations food anil drink, bread,
prepared meats, canned goods, milk
and a limited amount of hot coffee was
served to all thoee who applied.
Firemen Blow Up Buildings — Frantic
People Flee for Satety
Han Francisco, April 19 — With each
sncceding hoar tbe devastation and de­
struction in this stricken and prostrate
ruin of a city grows and grows. At «
o’clock tonight it seemed as if nothing
could save the comparatively small
portion of the city that yet remains un-
burned. The entire business and whole­
sale district is now only a glowing fur­
nace, while the giant tongues of flame
have reached westward far beyond l an
Ness avenue and are wiping out build­
ings and seeking more to devour.

throughout the north beach household­
ers are burying household
throwing them into the ditches and
covering the holes. Attempts are made
to mark the graves of the property so
that it can be recovered after the flames
are appeased.
Chief of Police Dinan said he thought
250 would fully cover tbe number of
deaths. He found it impossible to se­
cure details.
About 50 bodies have
thus far been found.
There was much shooting of looters
today, but the offenders were fortunate
enough to eecape with woundB.
There is a great shortage of the bread
supply in the city.
This afternoon,
after a panic at the California-street
bakery, the police took possession of
the premises and it will be operated
under municipal control. At this place
men battled with women and children
in their efforts to each seize four and
five loaves of bread.
The police used
their clubs for the purpose of bringing
about an equitable distribution of the
