Felt Off Japan
A very heavy earthquake was felt
off the coast of Japan, between Kobe
and Yokohama on the 13th Inst. The
fourth officer of the steamer Coptic told
the following story to a Bulletin re
porter which was corroborated by oth
ers of the officers and several passen
gers. "Wo wero In extremely calm weather
and I remarked to some of my brother
officers that It seemed rather unnatural,
It was not long before we saw signs of
trouble. Tho sea became suddenly
ruffled and we could see great moun
tains of water all about us.
"Suddenly the Coptic was In a tur
moil and tbero was every evidence that
an earthquake was In progress. I was
standing nt the bow of the vessel at
'A great sea came over and I wai
swept away toward 'midships, receiv
ing some bad bumps on the way. For
hours after this great seas came sweep
Ing over our decks keeping us on the
qui vlve all the while. Wo wero very
glad when the sea smoothed down
again and a good breeze sprang up.
Fortunately, no damago was done but
It did seem to me at tho time as If the
Coptic had started out wrong on this
trip. First It was the case of plague.
Then wo wont ashore and, finally, came
the earthquake. We are all hoping
that nothing will happen between here
and San Francisco.
At Japanese Church.
There was a special meeting of tho
Japanese church after tho regular Sun
