Ave Hiding the Truth,
The accounts of the terrible dis
aster which befel California on the
18th day of April, and which were
received hern by wire and mail, seem
not to have been exaggerated. Yes
terday the passengers on the Ala
nieda who passed through the ordeal
were kept busy describing the sensa
tion to many willing listeners. There
were some amusing incidents and
these seemed to have softened the
lines which bordered the tragedy.
The amusement was not always for
the actor, for none of the friends of
Chief Engineer Johnson of the Inter
Island Co. can Imagine Billy enjoying
a job where ail he had to do was to
wheel bricks from one place and pile
them in another. And yet this is
what one of his friends reports him
as doing. He was doing relief work
with a vengeance.
Mrf". T. W. Hobron and her daught
er Gladys were among the returning
passengers and while they were not
n the city during the quake their ex
perience was thrilling. They were
at the time of the shake stopping at
a hotel at Raymond, sixty miles from
San Francisco Tley were awaken
ed by the terrible sheck and the bed
in which Mrs. Hobron was sleeping
was thrown into the middle of the
room. With her daughter she ran
out of the house and then saw that
the cottage had been thrown a foot
off the foundation.
"We left soon after for San Fran
cisco, she said yesterday, "and
while there saw the desolation. No
one can describe it, no one can con
ceive the exact situation. The relief
committees are doing everything pos
sible, but it is most difficult to ac
complish everything the public needs.
There is no discrimination and the
rich and the poor stand together
waiting for their rations "
Another lady who resided outside
the fire zone was awakened from a
sound sleep by the crashing of a
chimney from the next house into her
room. She was with her two chil
dren and immediately! got them out
of the house.
A friend of ours and her children,"
she said, "were living further down
town and as her husband had gone
out of the city I felt that she needed
my assistance, and with my children
I started for the place where I knew
she bad been stopping. We picked
our way through the debris, taking
the middle of the street for our path.
We saw dead on all sides of us lying
among the lumber and bricks. I do
not think the newspapers are giving
out the full extent of the damage; it
seems that they have agreed to sup
press facts rather thaa injure the
city in a tourist or business way.
We were on our way to our
friend's when we received a severe
shaking. Two young girls who were
ahead of us made a dash for a church
that was standing open. Knowing
the danger of being in a structure of
that kind I prevented them from
entering. Another shock followed
that one and the church belfry fell
with a crash. I do not believe two
minutes elapsed from the first shock
until the belfry fell. .
"A little further along we passed a
building, or, rather, the ruins of a
brick building, for there was nothing
but a pile of bricks, level with the
street, and outside of what was once
their home was the family standing
in a group and in a dazed condition.
Then we met an old woman with a
wrapper over her nightdress running
about aimlessly and iu her hand was
a cage containing a parrot. She
said all of her clothing and effects
had been destroyed.
"When we reached the hotel where
our friends were stopping we touud
them in consternation tnd unprepar
ed for any action. I helped them get
their tiimks outside and then watch
ed for an opportunity to move them.
One wagon after another passed by,
but we were unable to secure their
services, but after a time there was
one driver who showed an inclination
to help. When I asked hun what he
would charge me he said a dollar. I
was so surprised that I asked him
again and he said that was the price
if the gentleman in the back bad no
objections to his takiug me. I asked
the gentleman aud he said ho would
do anything he could to help us and
if we would pay the driver the dollar
It would bo all right. I found that
the gentleman sitting in the wagon
wanted to move his baggage and bad
bought the outfit. Before we reach
ed our destination ttie wagon was
filled with refugees.
"Once we had moved I began to
i search for milk for the babies and
secured a half glass, there was noth
ing to be had to eat and they were
almost famished. In a little while I
saw a milk man and begged him for
a supply; his wagon was filled with
cans that were running over with
the precious food, but he refused to
give me any seeing that I had a half
glass. I explained to him that it
was nil' tin- babies had to eat and they
wen hungry. He said there were
others who had not had that much
and there should be no favoritism.
He finally yielded to my entreaties
and gave me a small quantity of
cream for ten cents. This merely
shows that there was a spirit of fair
ness marking the actions of some of
those who had plenty in dealing with
the sufferers who had nothing.
"I do not think I fully realized the
extent of the damage until two days
afte the disaster. It was then that
we secured the services of an Italian
to drive us to the ferry so that we
could get as far away from the scene
as possible. When we got to the
ferry the mob was so great that a
child was not safe; there was danger
at all times of being trampled to
death. The San Francisco people
had such faith in the city and were
so proud of it that they would not
be convinced, or they did not realize,
that the earthquake or any other
calamity, could have wrought such
havoc. If this feeling had not exist
ed there would have been a less
serious loss of personal effects.
"There has been a wide range in
the stories as to the number of deaths;
no one can correctly state it and
there is an inclination on the part of
the people to bide the facts. At one
time the number was given out as
two hundred, but I am confident that
I saw that number of bodies as I made
my way along the streets. At one
place, alongside a fence, there was
what appeared to be a number of
piles of blankets. 1 inquired what
they were for, and a man who seem
ed to be overseeing some men who
were digging a trench, told me they
were bodies wailing burial in the
trench that was being dug." Ad
