mantle of snow and ice. Cotton-was
killed and seed brought fifty cents per
bushel. The staple was selling at 43
cents. The price in the fall of that year
was eight cents.
This statement is based upon the re
collections of one of the proverbial old

LITTLE ?OY MEETS
DEATH BY DKOWMNU
Luther Franks, Son of Mr. R. J. Franks,
Was Drowned Friday Night in Re
servoir of Laurens Oil Mill.
Luther Franks, the seven year old
son of Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Franks of
the Laurens Mills, was drowned in the
reservoir of the Laurens Oil Mill early
last Friday night. His body was re
covered about half past eight o'clock
and the doctors stated that he had been
dead nearly an hour.
The unfortunate lad, together with
two other boys of about the same age,
seems to have been playing around the
reservoir when he ventured to swing out
on the conveying pipe which projects out
over and only a few feet above the
water. Being unable to get back the
little fellow lost his grip, fell and im
mediately sank in water between five
and six feet in depth. It is not known
whether he ever rose as his little com
panions ran away and were so fright
ened that they did not give the alarm
for some time afterwards.
The burial services took place Satur
day afternoon at Rocky Springs Church,
a few miles cast of the city.
Mr. and Mrs. Franks and all the be
reaved ones have the sympathy of all.
The deceased was the youngest child of
a family of several children, among
them Mr. Geo. N. Franks, foreman of
the card room at the Laurens mills.

EARTHQUAKE SHOCK AND FLAMES ALMOST DESTROY SAN FRANCISCO.
The Terrible Fate of the Metropolis of the Pacific Coast. One of the Most
Appalling Disasters of the Age. Fire Raged Three Days and Nights.
San Francisco, Apr 18. ?This city was \
practically wrecked by an earthquake
at 5:10 (Pacific time) this morning.
The shock lasted three minutes, thous
ands of people were killed and injured.
The terror and excitement is inde
scribable. Most people wore sleeping,
and rushed into the streets undressed.
Buildings swayed and crashed, burying
Added to the horror of the falling
buildings, fire broke out, and in an
amazingly short time swept the terri
tory for two miles, consuming blocks
of business houses, newspaper olfices,
churches and hotels.
By the latest information the build

The latest report from police head
quarters shows the entire district, sur
rounded by Vallejo, Howard, East and
Sansomc streets, embracing practically
the entire wholesale distaict in San
Francisco, has been swept by fire.
The district bounded by Market,
Eighth and Folsom streets, have been
devastated. In the latter district is
included most of the city's finest and
most substantial buildings. The area
covered by the flames to the present
time is about eight square miles. Very
little water is available and the blow
ing up of buildings by dynamite is the
only way of checking the (lames. Most
of the buildings untouched by flames
had been greatly damaged by earth
quake shocks. The pecuniary loss at
this hour (4 p. m., Pacifiic time) is
conservatively estimated at a hundred
Tue Second Day.
San Francisco, April 19.?The mag
nitude of the calamity that has befallen
San Francisco became apparent this
morning when a red sun arose above
the horizon and dissipated the pall of
darkness that hung over the stricken
districts. Looking eastward from the
heights in the central portion of the
city everything attested to the awful
havoc wrought by earthqurkc and
flame. Where once rose noble build
ings now stand nothing but frail walls,
tottering chimneys, heaps of twisted
iron and huge piles of brick and mor
tar. Adding to the horror of the sit
uation was the fact that the work of
the destruction had not reached its
conclusion. In several sections the lire
was still raging with unabated vigor,
converting into smoke and ashes every
thing in the shape of -combustible ma
terial, and turning into ruin structures
that had cost millions of dollars.
At 10.30 o'clock the (lames were
sweeping up Russian Hill fanned by a
THE MOST LAMBNTADLF FEATURE
of the conflagration is the utter ab
sence of means to stay its progress.
There is not a sound pipe east of Van
Ness avenue, and of that street the
supply has been made scanty by num
erous breaks in the continuity jot the
pipes, due to the earthquake. Yet at
Van Ness avenue the firemen, though
practically exhausted from over twenty
four hours' work and lack of food, de
termined to make a desperate stand.
Should the fire cross Van Ness avenue
and the wind continue its earlier direc
tion toward the west the destruction of
San Francisco will practically be com
plete. West of Van Ness and north of
McAllister constitute the finest part of
the metropolis. Here are located all
tho liner homes of the well-to-do and
wealthier classes, and if it should fall
before the conflagration there would be
little left of the city except a few
scattering suburbs. It is in these lat
ter places, and especially the ones near
er the ocean beach, that the bulk of the
homeless are seeking safely, although
the rush to the ferries was in the na
ture of a panic.
Fire Under Control.
Sun Francisco, April 20.- San Fran
cisco's darkest hour has dawned into a
day of hope. Its time of overwhelming
disaster and peril has ended and its fu
ture is now a subject of general consid
The (ire is practically under control.
A clear sky over the Mission district
shows that there the fire has been ex
tinguished. The spread of the flames
toward the western addition, the best
part of the city remaining, has been
stayed and the only portion of the con
flagration that demands the attention
of the firemen is that extending from
the Nob hill section down to the north
western part of the water front. The
western addition danger was averted at
2.;U) o'clock this morning by the use of
gun cotton, dynamite and two streams
of water. The explosives were handled
by the chief gunner of the Mare Island
navy yard, and his accomplishments
proved him to be a master of his pro
THK WOKK OF RELIEF.
The work of rehef was started early
today. A big bakery in the saved dis-'
trict started its ovens and arranged to '
bake 50,000 loaves of bread before
night. Thousands of people were in
line this morning before the California
street bakery. The police and military
were present in force and eaeh person
was allowed only one loaf.
GREAT DESTITUTION PREVAILS.
The destitution and suffering is inde
scribable Women and children who
had comfortable homes a few days ago
slept last night?if sleep came at ali
en hay, on the wharves, on the sand
lots near North Beach, some of them
under the little tents made of sheeting
which poorly protected them from the
chilling ocean winds. The people in
the parks are possibly better off in the
matter of shelter, for they left their
homes better prepared. Instructions
were issued by Mayor Schmitz, today to
break open every store containing pro
vision*; and to distribute them to the
thousands under police supervision.
The Fourth Day.
San Francisco, April 21.- The fire
burned itself out this morning. Last
night the flames spread from Nob Hill
Ridge toward the big sea wall, sheds,
docks and warehouses, but reports of
damage are conflicting.
It is reported by tiiose who skirted
the waterfront in a tug that all but
four docks have been burned from the
fisherman's wharf clear round to the
ferry building. This means nearly a
mile of grain sheds and wharves have
been added to the general destruction.
Fire broke out near the ferry build
ing last night, but tiro tugs saved the
building toduy. In the section north of
Market street the ruined district is
practically bounded on the West by
Van Ness Street.
The total loss is impossible to esti
mate accurately yet. One of the most
prominent insurance men said today:
"My idea is something like $200,000,000
damage done. I have heard other
insurance men make it $">00,000,000.
It is simply too big for a human i ead
to figure out now."
500 Bodies Recovered.
San Francisco, April 22.?The total
number of bodies recovered and buried
up to Sunday night is 500. No com
plete record can be had at this time as
many bodies have been buried without
permits from the coroner and the board
of health. The searchers of the coro
ner's and the board of health depart
ments found not more than 20 bodies
The Associated Press representa
tives today covered the entire area of
the burned section. The circumfer
ence of the area of the great confla
gration as near as could be ascertained
by the marking of a cyclometer is 20
miles and comprises the entire busi
ness district and a large section of
the residence district, all of which was
densely populated. It was estimated
today by competent insurance authori
ties that the loss will aggregate $noo,

State's Fart in Raising Funds.
Now York, April 23.- The voiceless
appeal of San Francisco has been heard
throughout, the civilized world. From
every city and town in this country,
from European capitals and from far
Eastern communities comes news that
all humanity, in expressing its sympa
thy, is also offering every material as
From the incomplete figures of the
contributions which have been made, it
is estimated that the San Francisco
fund now exceeds the total of $10,000,
000. In the burst of generous contri
butors, New York city ranks next to
the Government itself and bids fair to
far exceed the Federal contribution,
which has been fixed by Congress at
Tonight the New York fund amounted
to appropriximately $2,000,000 with
contributions coming in fast.
The State of Massachusetts has un
dertaken to raise $3,000,000 and with
Boston's generous help is well on the
way to the goal.
Chicago's fund, spontaneously sub
scribed, is approaching $1,000,000, and
promises to go beyond that sum. Phila
delphia will send$500,000. These are but
a few of the larger sums. A score of
more cities are contributing $100,000
and more, while hundreds of municipali
ties are sending all their means will al
low. From London, Paris, Berlin and
wherever Americans are congregated a
generous inflow of gold is reported.
Wholly foreign contributors, while
deeply appreciated, arc not to be ac
cepted, according to the precedent es
tablished by the President yesterday in
declining a gift of ?25,000 from a Ger
man steamship line. America, though
touched by the evidences of foreign
generosity, feels able to care for its
"uncounted thousands are sending
their contributions and the grand total
of the relief fund will probably never
be known. The New York Chamber of
Commerce to-day forwarded to San
Francisco $300,000. Chief among the
individual contributions have been
those of E. II. Harriman, $200,000 and
Andrew Carnegie, Win. Waldorf Astor,
I John D. Rockefeller and the Standard
Oil Company, all of whom gave $100,
000 each. A meeting of Americans in
London was called and ;> large fund im
mediately subscribed. Among the
other notable contributions have been
Ladenberg, Thalman & Co., $75,000;
M. Guggenheimer Sons, $50,000; J. P.
Morgan & Co., Speyer & Co., Khun,
Loeb & Co., and W. K. Vanderbilt,
each $25,000. It is estimated that, the
contributions of the New York Stock
Exchange will aggregate $250,000.
But most remarkable is the way in
which small contributions have poured
into the treasury of the organizations
formed to send aid to the stricken city.
Nor is the work of raising relief
funds confined to the large cities.
From every section, every State,
comes news of contributions made by
small towns. Not large in themselves,
their aggregate will be enormous.
Pittsburg has given $100,000, com
