ISSUED BY ARGUS
The news of the arthquake disaster
hat befel San Francisco at an early
.lour this morning, as told in the spe
cial editions of The Argus just before
noon and at 2 o'clock this afternoon,
created a profound sensation all over
ihe city. Copies cf The Argus extras
vere eagerly sought both in Rock Is
land and Moline, while anxious throngs
of people stood in front of The Argus
building where the bulletins were post
ed, as they did in other placets about
town where the paper was displayed
on window fronts. The service of thj
Associated Press as conveyed by the
Postal wiros to The Argus wa-a never
more prompt or complete or relia
ble, and every additional bit of infor
mation was awaited with deep inter
est. The regular edition of The Argus
contains more m detail than it was
possible to obtain in time for the ex
According to the signal service ad
vices from Washington, the force of
the shook reached' across the con
tinent, the tremor being felt at various
points, but inquiry at the local bureau
in Davenpoit elicited no information
ef disturbances hereabouts.
Immediately following the appear
ance of The Argus txtras messages
were hurried from Rock Island rela
tives and friends over both the West
ern Union and Postal wires asking as
to the safety of Rock Island people
known to be in California, many be
ing residents there and others touring.
There are quite a niia.b-'T vf people
from this city either in San Francisco
or near there. Among fiese are Mrs.
T. A. Murphy and children, Mr. and
Mrs C. H. Lippincott of Moline. G. A.
Stephens of Moline, Mr. and Mrs. F.
A. Herzog, Mr. and Mrs. J. S. White,
Mrs. Schwatka. and Mis Ruth Buffum.
Mrs. F. C. A. Denkmann. Miss Denk
maun, and Mrs. W. H. Marshall were
at San Francisco last week, but are
en route home, and are expected today.
Many people rail 1 at The Argus
office to make subscriptions to the
relief fund, should a general appeal lo
the country he made. This all will of
et-urse depend upon the gravity of the
situation after the effect of the shock
and exeifoment. has passed. But in the
event of work of relief being taken up.
Rock Island will suaiain its past repu

be found ready to cooperate to the full
extent that has characterized its cus

Although abbroviated d vices have

attorneys in the ease vf William Nage'.
charged with the murder of Carl Brady,
they are still undecided as to the mean
ing of the brief reports of the proceed

tanuled to some extent with the case
of the eopIe vs. Kewlin, from Iroquois
county, and it has been confusing to a
degree in this shape.

It is indicated, however, that the
case haw been remanded to the circuit
court of thin county to be here dispos

that in passing on the one cast? they
leave Ihe circuit judge to make a rul

the record in the cases do not coincide.
The opinion will be received in a short
