First Cable Report
From Fire Swept
And Wrecked City
OUTSIDE TOWNS SEND ASSISTANCE
The following cable was received by Supt. Gafnet at the cable olficc
from San Francisco, shortly after 10 a. m. The operator Is at the hut
near the Cliff Houcc:
The earthquake was worst ever felt. Threw down many buildings.
Fire started dozen places. Water mains broken. No water In whole
sale district. Fire spread like wildfire. No way to stop It. It swept both
cldes Market street right up to Twelfth street. Then worked west till got
to Van Ness avenue, where It was blocked.
Wholesale, retail and about one-half residence portion burned to the
Town under martial law. Panic everywhere.
All churches ruined or burned. Fire pretty well under control now, but
ctlll burning. Most of us lost everything.
Fire Is still raging In spots, but mostly under control. Dynamited all
that stood In way, lack of water.
Frightful lost of property.
Five miles from town and cannot get team.
Shake was terrific. Lasted about a minute.
Damage Is at least $150,000,000. The Mission Is still burning In places
but not at far out at Sixteenth ttreet.
Presidio It thought to be O. K.
The fire Is burning below Van Nets Avenue but not west of that point.
Hays Valley Is burning west to Octavla.
All west of Van Ness Is safe.
Between Van Nets and Market wiped out.
Our office dynamited.
The Palace, St. Francis and most all big hotels burned.
Tlood nulldlng and Emporium gone,
Fairmont Hotel burned. Devattatlon In all direction and relief pouring
Oakland and Piedmont are all right. Shake was not to bad there and
there was no fire. Can leave the city but cannot come back. No means
of reaching town from our station except to walk through the ruins, and
that Is almost an Impossibility. It cost us $75 to tend a messenger Into
town and it was almost impossible to get one at that price.
Relieve shipping suffered, but am unable to determine.
My wife and relatives are up country but whether they are dead or
alive I know rM,
Lordl this has been a fierce three daysl
Cannot get further news owing to the fact that the city Is under martial
Haven't hcaid anything of Importance from other cities. Haven't heard

Congress Votes Relief
Collector of Customs E. R. Stackable received the following cablegram:
President Roosevelt has ordered the money in the mint given up and
Congress has appropriated several millions for relief. Worst over but lots
of fire yet.

Cabled From San Francisco
From Cable Hut 4:30 Honolulu timo
Man o'war't man just from the waterfront reports wharves, etc., on fire,
but thinks they can confine It as they can get salt water.
Between Lombard street and the Preridio now burning. Mission dls
trict and western addition now under control. He traveled through burn
ing district and could hardly make his way. All ruins. You can't tell one
street from another. Great many patients from different hospitals and Sis
ters from different convents were taken abroard the transport Logan out
In the harbor. Dynamiting seems to have ceased, so wee feel that it's
under control now. I think fog came in about an hour ago, which will
help dampen thlngr. That's all we know.
Report that Hearst, Congress and other wealthy people, are giving
millions, starting bakeries. Soldiers a re supplying free rations. Worst
seems to be over. That all we know.
Going to close for the night. Candles given out. Open up at daylight.
At 3:15 Superintendent Gaines received the following from the operator
In the hut near the Cliff House, San Francisco:
Just had another small shock. Floor lias perceptible list, and pedestal
which was built Into the basement has come up about thirty Inches. Thcie
are cracks In front wall but guess will risk It. Only working with Campbell,
so we have to close with finish of those candles.
6:05 P. M, Another small shock.
