The Severest Earthquake
Ever Felt There—Incidents
of the Shock.
7 It is generally conceded that
the shock whicu took place at
2:21 a. ni. and lasted a little
over a minute,1 was one of the
most severe ever felt in the city;
still, it was so 'even and regular
that property !waa not dama.
ed as it would have been if the
undulations orthe ground had
been more shirr and frequent.
-ThTflf sntfotlk created great
Cfljis.ternauon among newspa-
t)? men and otners who hap
pened to be up, and made a
hasty rush for the street, and
their example was followed as
speedily as possible by hun-
ureas 01 oiners wno una oeen
in bed. In a brief period the
streets in the lowir portion of
the city were tilled with peo
pie desirous of ascertaining
whether any damage had been
done, and especially anxious to
hear from San Francisco, which
town it was feared had been
It wa3 general
that the theory of
weather" had exploded, as the
sky during the previous night
had been unusually clear, while
the full moon shone as bright
ly as it had ever been known
A slight quake was experi
enced yesterday jfternoon at
about two o'clock, but va9
probably not perceptible be
low the second story floors.
At Turner Hall; when the
earthquake put in jan appear
auc the Purira calico party
was in progress, and every one
present was reveling in enjoy
ment. Suddenly, while danc
ing, tUo ladWlooked in an as
tonished manner nt the gentle
meu, and the gentlemen at the
adies, each apparently having
a suspicion that the other had
been indulging too frequently
in exhilarating, beverage.
Then followed a more severe
hock, and the word "earth
quake" passed from mouth to
mouth. Ihe dance suddenly
stopped : many of the ladies
fainted, while others of the oc
cupants of the ball-room, male
and female, clung to oue anoth
er in terror, not knowing what
to do. One young- lady, who
had started to desceud the
stairs leading from the gallery
to tbe main hall, was precipitat
ed from top to bottom, but es
caped uninjured. A score or
two started to rush out the
front entrance but were check
At the county jail the pris
oners begged, and some pray
ed, with tears in their eyes, to
the jailer in charge to let them
out, which proposition he was
unable to concur in. Their
fear was not altogether ground
less, as the building shook and
worked in such a manner as to
give forth a sound similar to
that which would be made by
carriages driven through it.
Joe Harris, wh6 has a room
in the Railroad Exchange
building, Third and K streets,
was awakened from a sound
sleep by the shock, and sprang
from his bed, shouting "Mur
der I" under the impression that
there was some one under his
bed shaking it. He ran out of
the room, clotbed with a brief
linen garment and his right
eousness, shot down the stairs
to tbe street, like a bob tailed
comet, and was only brought
to a stop by tho voice or a
friend who suggested, "Joe, it
ain't murder only an earth
quake.'' The compositors employed
in the Union office consider
that they can vacate a three
story building in a shorter
space of time than any other
force of like number.
Parties who had opportuni
ties of obsreving, state that the
earthquake was "preceded by
rumbling sound, and also a
noise like that of a high wind.
Vhilo the shock prevailed,
the trees in gardens- acted" as
though dancing a horitcultural
quadiille bowing, advance-
iug, retreating, swinging, etc.,
in tht most weird like manner,
under the bright light of the
Men, women and children
turned out of their beds in
whatever nightclothing they
happened to wear, and at the
hotels especially there were
many remarkable develop
ments. One stranger in
town, who was stopping at a
hotel, jumped from his bed,
gathered up his clothing, boots,
valies, etc., and rushed out in
to the hall, where he met sev
eral ladies, nearly all of whom
were as much disrobed as him
self, which is aying considera
ble. One of the women cried,
"Oh, my children, my chilrenl"
to which, though usually a
gallant individual, he respond
ed, "To h-1 with your chil
dren ; show me the way to get
out of here !" Many persons
were seized with nausea and
were ill all day, Others were
impressed with the idea that
they felt shocks every few min
utes, and frequently created a
sensation by their shouts of
"There! Feel it?" At a late
hour in the evening we saw an
individual upholding a lamp
post, gazing about in a most
helpless -manner meanwhile,
and heard biui as we passed re
mark apologetically, "Ugh I

Amount Stolen From The
The supporters of the Grant
Administration claim that it is
ion est and economical, and
yet tbe defalcations of Admin
istration officials .3 over $40,-
000,000. During the Admin
istration or Van JJurenybwar
tout, the Collector of Customs
at New York, became a de
faulter to the amount of some
$40,000. This fact coming to
ight created an intense excite
ment from one end of the coun
try to another, and caused the
