Thousands of   People   Killed  in California,  BOO,000    PEOPLE   ARE    HOMELESS.  'The City Was Toppled and Torn by  Earthquake, and Devastated  by Fire���People Crushed to  Death by Ftillirijr Buildings���  Assistance - D'einy Sent���Other  Cities StiU'ered' Losses.  [SI'UC-IAI. TO TUG cri.ll.M.1 1  San Francisco, April i&.���Earth-,  -quake and -fire have today caused  the greatest calamity that the state  ���of 'California has ever known. In  San Francisco alone 'it is estimated  that over oiiethousand persons have  perished, while as many more -are  ���suffeiing from injuries.    The entire  ��� business.portion of the city is already .in   ruins .and the flames, ow-  - ing' lo the wrecking of the city's  water mains, fire halls and ap-.  paratus by the severity of .the ���earthquake, cannot Be cheeked except by  blowing up with dynamitenumeious  buildings in their path.  The dreadful shock, which came  without a moment's warning, occurred at precisely 5.13 this morning.  Its motion .was apparently lroin the  east  to   the  west.    At first the up-  ��� iieaval of the earth was slight and  gradual, but it increased rapidly in  intensity and the vibration, which  lasted for several seconds, became  turbulent aud appalling. Panic-  stricken people, clad only in their  night attire, rushed pell-mell into  ���the streets, where they were met  by showeis of falling buildings,  ���bricks, timbers, cornices, walls, etc.  Many were thus instantly crushed  lo death and scores of others were  ���dreadfully   mangled.     Those   who  1 remained indoors were more lucky  .and, although many painful injuries  were received, the majority escaped  with their lives.  The horror and misery of the  situation was at once augmented by  the innumerable fires which immediately followed the earthquake  and which, owing to the lack of  water and fire fighting' apparatus,  ���soon engulfed Ihe entire section of  the city extending from Market  street to the waterfront.  The, latest reports show that,the  entire district bounded by Vallejo,  Howard and East'Sansome streets  and the waterfront, embracing practically the entire; wholesale portion  of the city, has been clean swept by  the fire. Also, the district; bounded  by Second, Market, Eighth and  Folsoin streets has been entirely devastated. In the latter district were  located the city's finest and most  substantial buildings.  .San Francisco, April iSth, S p.m.  ������The area covered by flames at the  present time is about eight miles  square,  including several hundreds  of city7blocks. The damages caused  up lo lliis hour are conservatively  estimated at one hundred millions  o[ dollars. Most of the buildings1  so far untouched by flames have  been greatly damaged by the shocks.'  cThe outlying districts within a  radius of one hundred miles'suffered"  equally wilh San Francisco in sever-'  ity of shock, and as far as can be'  learned at present a similar scourge'  of flames is ravaging many of the:  smaller towns and villages through-'  out ihe afflicted district." j  The telegraph and telephone companies were badly crippled by the  earthquake shocks. Both the Postal'  and.Western Union telegraph, as  well a's the Pacific telephone buildings, were destroyed. The com-'  panies are establishing . offices' -atj  Oakland, but even there the facili-,  ties have been greaitly crippled and'  the  systems generally demoralized.'  San Francisco, April 19th, 10  a.m.���General Fuhstan has wired  Washington -that -over one hundred'  thousand people are'homeless and'  that the number of people killed  may reach 2,000. The authorities  are unable to -bury the unidentified  dead and the navy department, in  response to an appeal, has placed'  several warships at the city's disposal to'take the bodies to sea for  burial before decomposition sets in'  and causes a plague.  The situation this morning is appalling. Crowds of people searohed  the morgues for dead and missing'  relatives all .night .loiig. One hundred aud fifty persons," who were'  driven insane by agony aud the excitement, have been taken into  custody.  The loss from destruction of pro-'  perty now amounts to $200,000,000  or more.  - Oakland, Berkley, Sacramento,  Alameda and many other places  were badly wrecked but, as the telegraph lines are down in all directions, it is impossible to get full,  reports from fhem.  San Francisco, April 19th, 1.58  p.m., via courier to Oakland.���The  whole city is absolutely at 'the  mercy of the flames and it looks as  if all the residential sections will be  wiped out before 'the conflagration  can be got in hand. The very  vitals of the city have already been  consumed and not a shred ofthe  business section remains. New  fires have started in fifty different  places throughout the residential  sections-and all efforts to cope with  the destructive flames are unavailing. "Nob" hill and. the entire  fashionable residence ���., district Jias  been completely destroyed!  The outlaw element is appearing  in many of the streets and numerous  cases of theft are known to have  been committed. They have gone  even further aiid already the. soldiers, acting under official orders,  have shot and . killed four ghouls  who were caught perpetrating their  nefarious crime.  : The Mechanics payillipiv -where  some 500 bodies which had been  recovered Hum the deb:is of different buildings had.been placed awaiting identification, caught fire and is.  now in ashes. "Many of (the bodies'  had been removed by relatives or  friends, 'but it is stated that fully  two hundred of .the* corpses were  cremated.    " !  There is not a -single street in.  which life is safe aud everywhere!  fatal accidents are constantly occur-1  ring from falling walls.  Although the street-lighting system is utterly demoralized, all outlying sections of the city were last  night 'brilliantly and luridly illuminated by the many fires. ���    ���  Over three thousand injured people have been taken 'to "the hospitals  but, as many of these institutions  are now threatened by the on-coming fire, the injured are, as rapidly  as possible, being removed to improvised tents in Golden Gate park.  Fully ten -square miles of territory, formerly containing the choicest portions of the city, are now  devastated. . Over a thousand residential blocks and fifteen hundred  business blocks are in the ruins. ���  TIIK  I.ATJ'ST. :  San Francisco, '10.40 a.m., April'  20th.���San Francisco is no more.'  Mercilessly unsalable fires arc licking up the remnants of the former  proud city. The raging flames defy  dynamite, back-firing and (ill oilier  stratagems known to fire-fighters.  Last night 300,000 men, women  and children; 'formerly wealthy and1  poor; society people aiid working-  men; those of the best families and  outcasts; slept in the open air at  Golden Gate park and on- the beach  at -the Cliff House, and knew no  cast or class.  Bakeries are being established.  Fifty thousand loaves of bread were  baked today. Relief contributions  arriving from all -quarters.

One'hundred thousand lents and'  other supplies arc being rushed fioni  Seattle by special trains.  Every house in San Francisco has  been- deserted. -Eighteen"square,  miles -of>-territory has been totally  devastated.

At present there aretwotowns'ftes  located on Windy' Ann.' Conra'Jl,  City, about three miles up the arm  011 the north side, and Wynlon, five  miles nii-flier up on the same side  and just over the Yukon ������bonndar}"  in British Columbia.  Conrad City, which was started  last summer by those in control of  the Conrad Consolidated Mines, >is  situate at 'the end 'Ot the partially  erected Irani line and is quite a promising little town, although at the  present time it is comparatively  small with only a' few buildings.  At presellt it is the depot tor-all  freight .teams from outside as well as  the pack train to the mine.  Wynlon, in our own province,  has an .almost ideal situation for -a  townsite. The ground has a gradual slope from the lake buck; to the  mountains, giv'iig all an excellent  view. The townsite is almost in  Ihe shape of a half circle three-  quarters surrounded by water and,  facing the southeast, receives the  full benefit of-the sun. The soil is  loamy and free from rock;;. Thereis  a very clear stream from the moiui-  Tdins running" through.-the tovfffr  a{fording ample water for power,  domestic and fire-fighting purposes.  At the present lime there .are under  course of ���construction two very  large two-story hotels., a 11 umber*of  smaller buildings and' a saw mill,  which latter will probably be rttn-  ���ning'ihis u-ecct week.  Of course great rivalry exists between the various parties interested  in the two towns and both are loud  in their praises. A-s to which will  be the larger town depends entirely  upon tlie quarts mines in its immediate -vicinity and, from the present showing, it looks -as though  Wynlon will have a decided ad- '  vantage. But. it is a little premature at make any emphatic  statement.  There will be great activity till  over the Windy Arm district a::id  for from .40 to 50 miles southerly in  B. C. Some very excellent outcrops have been located and sales  are easily made.  The work on the Conrad Consolidated Mines, of which 1). Mann, of  Messrs. ���/MqK.enzie ��� &. Maun, has  obtained control, will be pushed to  Ihe utmost to prove the extent of  the ore bodies in ail the various  claims. .To .this ..end he has had  shipped lo the mines 100 tons of  iiiachinery-and-supplies,��� consisting  of four 50 h.p. gasoline engines,  three hoists, four compressors, rails  and hardware, and at'is estimated  thatthe various pay rolls will shortly aggregate tit least $15,000-per  month.

Our   telegraphic   budget of last-  week contained  the   announcement  that   another  attempt at the reform  of the English language,  by simplifying the  spelling  of words, as re-  ,' commended  by  Andrew  Carnegie,  is to be made by a board of American   educationalists.    With   an exchange   we  would ask:    Will ihN  attempt   to  grapple  with the difficulty be more successful in achieving  its object than those that have gone  before?   That the English language,  marvellous such  as' it   unquestionably is,   has  the  defects of iis rare  qualities   there   can   be  no doubt.  Can the defects be eliminated without destroying the structural beauty  of the language?  The difficulties in the way even  of ' conservative reforms are very  great. For instance, no one -would  or could reduce the number of the  sounds of the vowels, and that is  fatal to the doctrine of strict phonetic' spelling.  The mere existence of difficulties  is, however, no more an argument  against reasonable reform than it  would be in the industrial or political sphere. That the progress towards rational simplification must  be very slow and sweetly reasonable  is evident from the comparatively  small number of men who have  been induced to accept the fruits of  past reforms. How few can see any  advantage from changing "technic"  for "technique" for instance, "pro-  feshun" for "profession," or "thru"  for "through"? Yet these changes  are undoubtedly in Ihe line of simplicity. The process of adapting  the language to .the needs of the  people has been going on for centuries. It is when we compare our  spelling today with that of Chaucer  and Spencer, or even with that of  Shakespeare and Bacon, that we  realize the extent of it.  Spelling changes are like the addition of words and locations to the  language. They must be gradual  and they must be the outgrowth of  needs that are distinctly felt, and  to ensure geneial adoption they  must commend themselves to tasle  and intelligence.  ALASKA-YUKON   FAIR.  The Alaska-Yukon fair proposition was duly launched at a banquet  given at Seattle by the. Alaska club  on the 1 itii inst. Ex-Mayor Bal-  lingcr, ol' t>ai(le, presided. The  speakers said it would be necessary  for Seattle to raise $500,000 to make  the fair a success. Telegrams were  seul to Govenier McFnnes, of the  Yukon, and Dr. Thompson, M. P.  for Yukon,' at Ottawa, who were  awaiting the outcome of the meeting  before asking the Dominion government for assistance-.  It was explained that on account  of the Jamestown fair next year and  the Alaska election in 190S, the fair  should not be held before 1909.  The dates were left unsettled. Seattle has promised to put her shoulder  to the wheel mid raise Ihe amount  of monev demanded of her.  Why sknii <n"c wni'.s von <'.\;<' c.'.'.v <inni)S ak riiUAr hv.ue?  Atlin.

"-Go and dig there.!" advised a facetious miner, thinking to  play a joke on the confiding tenderfoot who had asked where he would  better begin his mining. He pointed as he spoke to a crumbling prospect hole, 'long before abandoned as  ground utterly barren. But to the  -eyes of inexperience one spot looked  :as promising as another, and the  young fellow promptly lent himself  ���to the unguessed humor of the situation with the result that in less  sthan a day's work he had uncovered  .one of the richest veins of tellurium  -ever opened in that camp.
