Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Howard and
their daughter, Miss Eula, arrived
home Wednesday from San Francisco,
where they have been for the past
year while Miss Eula was taking ad
vanced lessons on tbe plana Mrs.
Howard and Miss Eula were in the
earthquake disaster, Mr. Howard
happening to be in Grants Pass that
month, but they were not injured nor
were they disturbed by the fire. The
house tbey occupied was bat little
damged by the shock and the fire only
got within two blocks of their street
Mr. Howard states that the city was
not so badly injared by the earth
quake as was reported; the best build
ings not being seriously damaged.
But all the alimsly strnotures and
those that bad been pot up by dis
honest contractors were torn to pieces
by tbe shock. The 17,000,000 city
hall went to pieces and was a mass of
ruins before the fire touched it, for it
represented abont ftt.000.000 graft and
stealage and was so poorly constructed
that it barely stood nnder normal con
ditiona. The steel frame buildings
stood and had they not been injured by
the fire would have required but lit
tle repairs. Mr. Howard states San
Francisco Is building op fast and
better and more substantial and is
more prosperous than ever and he
thinks that within five years that it
will have one-half more population
and wealth than it now has.
Mrs. Howard and Miss Eula will go
to Williams to spend the Summer
with Mrs. Howard's parents, Post
master and Mrs. David Johns and Mr.
Howard will spend a part of his time
