TELLS OF DAMAGE.
A Stanford Student Tells O? The
Miss Laura Wells, the only
daughter of Manager C. B. Wells
of tho Wailuku Sugar Company,
has returned to her homo from
Stanford University, and tolls a
thrilling story of her experience
during the earthquake of the 18th
of April and tho days following, be
foro eIio was able to get away from
the ruined University.
. Her account of tho catastrophe
is as follows:
. When the earthquake was upon
.us tho first thing ,that I know was
that I found myself standing up,
with one hand braced against the
wall, struggling frantically to hold
my balance. I was thrown forward,-
"sideways, backward. The
house swayed and jerked and twist
ed. It felt like a great storm
at sea, and all tho noises
with a predomiilenco of groaning
and creaking carried out the im
pression. There were several jprks,
racking, sinuous, then an in
stant of trembling lull, when I
jthought that it must be over, but
it would recommence. Once as I
lurched forward I caught a glimpse
through tho window and thought
that we were surely going over.
Many of tho bureaus, all bookcases,
etc., were thown down. Books and
vases wero hurled all over tho floor.
The atmosphere was , filled with
dust and powdered -plaster. The
quako lasted forty-seven seconds.
The girlB in tho house were
collected, as wero all tho students.
One girl, who had lived in Japan
and was accusiomedto earthquakes
was shouting for everyone, to get
out of the house before the second
shock. Somoof us laughed at her,
but, when in a few minutes it be
making the porch
shock was slight.
Our astonishment was great
when wo saw tho ruin around us.
A house a stono's throw away was
partially col lapped and sunkon in.
Next we psiw that the steeple of tho
Memorial church wiif goneleaving
ii'itliinphul 1 short round of woodon
superstructure that ovtrtops 4he
college as a horrible, mournful,
In a fe v minutes everyone was
hurrv iii' to look at tho buildings
mil learn whether anyone had b:on
hurt. All were very much excited
but lcpl their heads. College men
hurried to dig out tho sovon buried
and two crushed. Others wero tel
ling of their narrow escapes and
the damage dono. Wo thrilled
with the telling how fifty men,
from the hall where portions of
every floor had fallen, wero at the
SINGER SEWING MACHINE CO.
R. W. HOWELL,
tho girls' dormitory in less than
ten minutes after tho dipa.ster to
help tho girls oul. We marvelled
at the personal accounts of people
who had been carried down several
floors and remained unhurt. The
word was passed around that classes
would resume work on tho morrow
to prevent a panic. We hurried
back and forth to see the damaged
and collapsed buildings. The col
lege was a grand monumental ruin.
All the ornamental buildings were
gone or badly damaged. Tho low
lying buildings of the original plan,
but slightly damaged, still prove
the existence of tho college. A
freakish sight, being worded over
the country, was that of a statue
that dove head foremost from a
second story into tho pavement.
Buried to its shoulders it remained
intact. As we looked heavily at
the ruins of he best part of tho
college, again and again, we heard
the words repeated, "How well that
Mrs. Stanford did not live to Bee
this. It would have broken her
Then came the word by mouth
that San Francisco had received a
greater shock, buildings flat across
the street, and a big fire raging.
Rumors from the outBide world of
greater disasters came pouring in.
Telegraphic and telephonic conv
munication was cut off. The trains
could not get into the city. The
rumor got to San Jose that three
hundred were killed at Stanford.
Wo could get no word out or re
ceive word from friends. We wero
almost frantic. Many of us haunt
ed the station at Palo Alto. When
ever a train came from San Jose
none camo from San Francisco, the
passengers would throw up the car
windows and tell all tho meagre
news that they had heard. We
would rush up to every automobile.
Reports became worse, "The whole
city is doomed." 'Ruffians' are
headed this way." "The insane
from the Asylum - are running
free." Martial law was declared
around the University, and every
thing was patrolled.
With all'this, Lick Observatory
kept flashing messages throughout
tho day, as, "Expect an earthquake
at eleven. Perhaps as bad." Slight
shocks camo at tho time specified.
These kept up for several days.
Wo wero ordered to keep out of the
houses as much as possible. We
slept on tho lawna and porches.
Late that ovoning wo heard the
report (false) that a fire in the
West( rn Addition was rushing to
ward the fires from downtown. Wo
could see tho flame colored sky
over San Francisco, and heard tho
blasting of their buildings going on
This was tho first day. The sec
ond was not much better. The first
letters came through Saturday.
Tho tenseness subsided to some
degree, college was dismissed, and
ovcryono prepared to leave. Sat
urday we left for Oakland. I had
to stand tho whole way, change
cars twice and took over four
hours to reach our destination.
