Chattanooga, Tknn., August 31
A decided earthquake shock was felt
tonight at 8:50 which insted nearly
twenty satondn. . The courthouse and
the Timet building, two of the strong
est structures in the city, swayed to
and Uo, and the windows rattled as il
shaken by a severe wind. The move
ment omed to be from the southeast.
Great excitement was created in the
city and peojla ran affrighted from
their home in one part of tbe city.
A lady became so frightened that she
fainted and the neighbors were afraid
for a time to go to her. A, colored
mealing was in progre at the courSr
house, and when tha cry of earthquake
was heard there was a general rush
for the door in the greattvit tea-. The
meeting was broken up. The K. of L.
were holding a meeting in a third story
ball. The shock waa so great as to move
chaira in the halt and causs the gas
pendants to sway vigorously. The
meeting became demoralized and the
asembiy ruBhed pell mell down the
stairs. Other incidents occurred, in
dicating the general consternation
created by the shock.
