The report that the Fan Francisco dis aster would delay the construction of the California Northeastern railroad and possibly prevent Ha completion in to Klamath Falla Ixrfore next March gained such headway and received so much credence in thia city, that the Re publican, on learning that President Naftzger was at Bovee’s ranch, cam- municated with him over the telephone. When asked aa to what foundation the rumor hail, Mr. Nzftzger replied most emphatically. “Absolutely and positively no foun dation at all. The only delay or inter- ferience with the rapid construction and prompt completion of the California Northeastern will tie duo to replacing the equipment and supplies of the con- tractors which were destroyed in San Francisco. This delay will be very .light-not more than a few weeks, and after they are replaced the work will ___ be pushed with so much energy that by the time we reach Klamath Falla tbe |,^, wji| probably be mure than made up.” “Will the unsettled conditions pro duce. 1 by the financial losses sustained bv all classes in San Francisco have any . effect on your other plans"' “None whatever," replied Mr. Nafts- ger. "The calamity is so great and the shock ao severe that it has affected every 1 portion of the coast. Thia is not due so much to financial stringency as to the fact that the people of the entire Pa- i citic coast have been etunned by the magnitude of the horror.

His home waa destroyed, and what few effects he saved was only accomplished after mov- ing them from one point to another five different times.

Ilia confidence is the same as that <>f every business man in the Bay City, and where men of such sterling quali ties stand shoulder to shoulder, it can have only one effect—the tip- building of a greater and grander metropolis on the I’acitic coast.
