TERRIFIC SHOCK
More Thar) a Thousand Perish   in San Francisco
Disaster
Terrible-Conflagration Sweeps
the City   in  Every
Direction
San Francisco, April 18.—Earthquake and lire have put nearly all of
Han Francisco in ruins. Brigadier
General Funston believes 1000 persons have heen killed. .-Thousands of
other? have been injured and property
loss already will exceed two hundred
million dollars. Tens of thousands
are homeless and destitute and all
day long streams of humanity have
been fleeing from the stricken districts to places of safety.
For three miles along the water
front, buildings have been s'vept
clean and tonight the blackened
beams and great skeletons of factories
and office buildings stand silhuetted
against a background of Hame that is
slowly spreading over the entire city.
The whole commercial and offibe section of the city on the south side of
Market street from the Ferry building to Tenth street, has been consumed by tho Hames,while hardly a building is standing in the district south
of Market.
At 2 o'clock, • despite the heroic
work of the fireman and the troop of
dynamiters who blew up property
valued at millions, the flames spread
across Market street, to the north side
mid swept up Montgomery street,
practically to Washington. Along
Montgomery street are some of the
richest banks and commercial houses
' in 8an Francisco.
The famous Mills building and the
new Merchants' Exchange, in which
is situated the marine and stock exchanges, are still standing, but the
Mutual Life Insurance building and
scores of bank and office buildings are
on lire, while blocks of other houses
aro in the path of the fianies and
nothing seems to be at hand to stay
their progress. Block after block pf
banking houses are now masses of red
hot ruins nnd it will be months before
the money that was housed in their
vaults, can bo reached.
The earthquake caused the wreck
of the California hotel on Bush i.ud
Kearney streets, and the falling ohini.
ney and cornice of the hotel crashed
through the lirohouso odjoining'severe-
ly injured Fire Chief .Sullivan, so that
ho wus unable to direct tho work of
lire lighting. He is now in a hospital
in a precarious condition.
Despite this disheartening accident
the entire fire department, assisted by
part of the Oakland department, and
many volunteers from outside districts, did heroic service, many brave
men losing their lives while performing the work of succor. The earthquake, however, had broken most of
' the water mains and the men were
without water to battle with the fire
fiend. Whatever water was obtained
to fight the flames in the harbor front
and in tho factory district was pumped from the bay. This compelled
dynamiting as the only possible method of saving any of the city.
The flames  were kept confined  to
the sontli of Market street in the
business section until about 3 o'clock
In the afternoon, when the wind carried sheets of flamo into the richest
part of the city.
The Palace hotel, which has sheltered famous people from all parts of
the world, was burned clean. Nothing but the gutted framework of its
1000 rooms now stands.
. All efforts to prevent the fire from
reaching the Palace and (irand hotels
were unsuccessful, and btoh were
completely destroyed, together with
all their contents.
All of San Francisco's best play
houses, including the Majestic, Columbia, Orpheum and Grand opera house,
are a mass of ruins.
The scene at the Mechanic's pavilion during the early hours of morning
and up to noon, when all the, injured
and dead were removed becauso of the
threatened destruction of the building
by fire, was one of indescribable sadness. Sisters, brothers, wives and
sweethearts searched eagerly for some
missing dear one. Thousands of persons hurriedly went through the
building inspecting the cots on which
the sufferers lay, in the hope they
would find some loved one that was
missing. The dead were placed in
one portion of the building, and the
remainder was devoted to hospital
purposes. After the fire forced the
nurses and physicians to desert the
building, tlio eager crowds followed
them to the Presidio and the children's hospital, where they renewed
their search for missing relatives.
Up to a late hour this afternoon
more than 730 persons who were seriously injured by the earthquake and
the fire had been treated at the vari
ous hospitals throughout the city.
The front of the Bailey buildinj.
on Clay street, near Montgomery, fell
in, killing three men.
Captain Gleason of the police de
partment was seriously injured at
noon today by falling tile.
The stereotypers und pressmen of
the Examiner and the Call, as soon as
the shock was felt, rushed out of
their buildings and found a coffee
house at Stevenson and Third streets
had collapsed. They immediately set
to work with axes and anything in
tho way of an implement with which
they could provide themselves to rescue those inside.
Reports from districts outside of
San Francisco indicate widespread
damage. San Jose, 50 miles south,
lost many buildings and from 15 to
20 people were killed. The Vendome
hotel collapsed and fire broke out,
Stanford university and Palo Alto
suffered,, At Stanford many fine
buildings wero demolished and two
people were killed. One of them was
Junius Robert Hall of Bradford, Pa.,
and the other was Otto Gurts, u fireman. Six other students are lying in
the Palo Alto hospital with bruises,
cuts and internal injuries.

their names cannot be learned. They

British Columbia Copper Company Has Made a Substantial Deposit
Which Will Be  Forfeited  in
Case the Option Is Not
Exercised
The Engineering it Mining Journal gives the average price of electrolytic copper for March at 18.361
cents. This compnres with an average price 17.879c in February and
18.310c in January. Upon the
basis of these quotations the United
Copper, Granby, Shannon, Old
Dominion, United States Mining,
British Columbia Copper and a
number of other mining companies
will probably receive payment for
their output sold during that period.

A representative meeting of citizens was held lust week in Midway
for the purpose of making arrangements for the 21th of May celebration. This event hns invariably

great changes have taken place in
this locality, nnd no doubt there is
a great nuniher of people who would

The bonding of the Oro Denoro
mine by the British Columbia Cop-.
per company was announced two
weeks ago by The Sun but n;i details were then available. Smith
Curtis, seoretary of the Dunora
Mines, Ltd., hns jnst issued a circu-
Inr to thc shareholders, explaining
nt length ihe nnture of the deal. In
the circular Mr. Curtis states:
"Your directors have arranged with
the Brirish Columbin Copper com
pany, Ltd., to give the latter until
the 26th of June, 1906, the privilege of developing the Oro Denoro
mine and the option of acquiring
the mine within that period, the
price to be paid in that company's
shares—ii) fact to consummate an
amalgamation. The company has
made a substantial deposit, which
wjif be forfeited in case the option
is not exercised'. After the payment of the usual commission on
the sale, the shares to be received
will at their present market value
equal about 20 cents for each outstanding Denora share." After describing thc British Columbia Copper company's position and the
favorable outcome of the deal in
question looked (or for the Oro Denora shareholders, the circular proceeds: "As to the success of coper mining nnd smelting in the
Boundary district, reference may be
made to the increase in thc value of
the Granby oompany operating similar copper ore deposits. While
treating 50,000 tons a month, its
market valuation rose from $-1,500,-
000 in 190*1 to 812,000,000, and,
since it began a few months ngo to
treat 70,000 tons a month, has
risen too over 818,000,000. It is
now snid to be earning S200,000 u
month profits. The disadvantages
of operating a low grade copper ore
property like the Oro Denora without the mine owning a smelter nre
such that your directors can heartily
recommend and approve of the arrangements made. The Deiioru
company retains its other mining
claims and cash assets, from which
after a time a fair return will doubtless be made-

Today's experience has been a testimonial to the modern steel building.
A score of these structures were in
course of erection, and not ono of
these suffered. The completed modern buildings were also immune from
harm by earthquake. The buildings
that collapsed were all llimsy wooden
and old fashioned brick structures.
The damage by earthquake docs not
begin to compare with the loss by lire.
The heart of the business section of
San Francisco has been destroyed by
lire. An area of thickly covered
ground of eight square miles has been
burned over, anrl there is no telling
when the fire will be under control.

How to Cure toothache
Any aching tooth can be relieved
instantly with Nerviline. Fill the
pavity with badting dipped in Nerviline and rub the gums with Nerviline
also. If the face is swollen and sore
bathe the painful parts with Nervilino
ami cover with a flannel. JTJiis can't
fail, because Nerviline kills the pain
outright and prevents it from returning. Stronger, quicker, more satisfactory than any other liniment, Poison's
Nerviline has been the largest seller
for nearly fifty years; try it yourself.
