THE MORNING CALL. SAN FRANCISCO, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7. 1890-SIXTEEN PAGES.
Inception and Growth of a Noble
Eumvin j Earthqualcs and Fire It Row Stands
Foremost Among E'e unoEycary
The celebration on Sunday last of Profes
sor Warring Wilkinsoi/s twenty-fifth anni
versary as principal ot the California Insti
tution fur tin Instruction of the Deaf and
Dumb iii.rt the Blind calls to mir.d the not
uniuleiestiug history of that establishment.
It was organized more than thiity years
aso by Mrs. P. 15. Clark, Mrs. Dr. Whitney
and Mrs. Jacob Underbill, as Presi
dent, Vice-President end Secretary' re
spectively, and twenty-five other ladies,
who met for the purpose in the old Oriental
Hotel in Sun Francisco. Inquiry had shown
a lurge number in the State to require the
ben Hi is of such an institution, and not wait
ing for the tardy assistance of the Legisla
ture, a house on Teliama street was pro
cured and opened as a school May 1, IStJO.
The services of 11. B. C'randall, a cultured
deaf- unite instructor, were engaged, under
whose care the first inmates of the institu
tion, a boy and two girls, were placed.
During the first monta the school increased
to eiulit mm) in six liunths to sixteen, re
ceiving its Rapport from public charity. An
entertainment Riven by the ladies above
mentioned at the old Mechanics' Pavilion
realized between S:wo and JGuuo, and with
this sum and nn appropriation by the legis
lature of $10,000 a lot was purchased and a
school building erected in the Mission, Mis.
Clark contiauing to act as principal.
Thus the Institution was set fairly upon
its feet. Its progress and prosperity were
far beyond tlie most sanguine expectations
of tl:« managers, although many dillicul
ties bad to be encountered. After five years
of untiring eltort on Uehalt of the "children
of silence and darkness " Mis. I*. B. Chirk
resigned, the loss of her influence and sup
port as principal and President being se
verely felt, as one of tliejrreatest difficulties
experienced was in obtaining capable in
structors, especially in the male depart
ment. Teaching of this kind is In itself a
ACQTJir.KI) ONLY BY STUDY
And long practice, »nd California could
furnish nobody capable of the task. Jonu
M. Frsui'ds of Ohio, whose services were
procured after much trouble, succeeded Mrs.
Clark, hut the arduous duties soou told upon
his delieale constitution, obliging him to
resign to Professor Warring Wilkinson,
lorinerly of the New York Institution.
In the study of methods of Instruction of
the deaf the latter was an enthusiast, and
vigorously tooic hold of the difficult task.
Before him he saw a vast field, for improve
ment. He looked upon the institution, not
as a philter establishment, or an asylum, as
was popularly believed, bnt a ph.ee to enr.
ble the pupils to care fur themselves in the
battle of lite, where thedc.if mid dumb es
pecially need a helping hand. lie con
demned the mistaken kindness of those who
responded to the solicitation of deaf -ni a tea
for alms, as a practice fostering idleness
and vice. lie considered the deaf and
diiinb perfectly capable of honorably tup
porUug themselves and intended thatunder
liis instructions they should learn to do so.
The school in the Mission was soon seen
to be unsuitable for various reasons, and a
commission appointed for tho puipose bejjan
to cast about lor a satisfactory permanent lo
cation. The many advantages of what was
then known as "Kearney Farm," situated
about four miles north of Oakland, and ad
joining the grounds of. the University of
California, were apparent, and it was de
cided upon as the site for tie new school.
No more, beautiful spot could have been
chosen, possessing as it doe? a high eleva
tion, fresh and salubrious climate, iree from
the severe trade winds and the heat of the
interior, sind ;i beautiful \ie\v of the Golden

the surrounding country.

THE SIKMOUABI.K EAETIIQUAKK
Of 1868 caused an unsecured stone gable to
fall, crashing ihriugli wo< d and gi;iss, and
the massive stone chimneys were thrown
down, some falling inward and carrying
eveilliins with them to the cellar.
In 1869 the school was transferred to its
new home, litit the past ten yeats had
seen many Improvements, the facilities for
education being constantly Improved aud
the membership increased. Although far
from realizing the ultimate desiuns of the
principal, tha best possible results were
achieved. Especially could its managers
congratulate themselves on the lieaitiiful
condition of the puplU, the exemption from
disease being truly remarkable. The facili
ties for mechanical education were con
stantly brought nearer to perfection, and
the. teachers' faithful and earnest lai>or for
the welfare of the charges was attested by
rapid picvress intellectually and morally.
In the new building every modem device
for comfort ai.d education was provided,
the donations of the charitably Inclined
making various Improvements possible tlut
must olherwise have been long delayed.
On the 17lh of January, Ifc7">, occurred the
most serious setback to the progress of tne
institution in its history, a conflagration that
uot only destroyed the buildings but threat
ened to shatter its able corps uf assistants.
The time was Sunday afternoon, on which
day the pupils dined at 4 o'clock, as did the
servants and laboreis. As eveiybody con
nected with the premises was Inside the tire
had a full half-hour to s; read Without possi
bility of discovery. Professor Wilkinson
thus describes thu catastrophe:
"The kitchen, of one story, wns situated
back of the main building and separated
from it by a narrow passage way. The
chimney was perhaps forty feet removed
from the rear wall, aud its top was about on
a level with the eaves of the main buildiup,
so tost the ridge of the gothic roof must
have been ten feet higher than tlie mouth of
the chimney. The roof was shingled and
a fierce wind from the north blew across
the* institution, cairying away
That might lie wrenched from the chimney
upon the shiuglis, where a crack offering
lodgment the spark would soon be fanned
to a blaze by the Kale.
"Having gained access to the ventilation
apparatus tfce flames spread with frightful
rapidity from one end of the building to the
other, so that the whole roof was involved
at the moment when (from half a dozen
standpoints) the fire or smoke wa3 seen.
The matron, from the rear corridor, saw
smoke issuing from the eaves of the limit
building. At the same time from tho front
hall 1 saw twenty feet of hViine on the ridge
of the rear roof. Two employes with fire
extinguishers went up into the tower, but
were driven back by the volume of fire that,
following the line of ventilation, was pour
ing across the chapel. Tho laborers, whose
quarters were in the third-story rear, heard
the duckling, which they thought to bo
raindrops, and came out to see what was
the matter. Tho boys also had, from tho
grcuuds where they went after dinner, dis
covered the fin; and came running after the
fire-b::eke;s lh.it were stored on the second
floor. All lliis was in the space of one min
ute, Mid in ten minutes uli above the first
floor was unsafe." The firo continued to
rage far into the night, casting n lurid light
upon the surrounding hills aud being plainly
discernible from San Francisco."
In tiiis great emergency the constant
solicitude of tho public for tho success of
the institution was again attested, offers of
hospitality and assistance being sent from
all directions. Many threw their houses
open to the unfortunate pupils until able to
seek their friends and relalious. A week
of flood und storm immediately followed.
Mall and telegraphic communication was
cut off, and the sudden rise of streams and
destruction of bridges throughout the Slate
made it unsafe to send children to their
homes without escort. Many contributions
of money were received, and the free use of
the difTeicnt railroads vouchsafed.
Ou the. Loth of January a public meeting
was held to investigate the cause of the fire,
Governor Booth being present After an
all day's session, in which numerous
WITNESSES WEKK EXAMINED,
A resolution was passed exonerating the
principal, teachers and employes, aud de
claring the causo of the fire to have been ex
posure of tho roof to sparks from the
Before new buildings were erected, it was
thought advisable to send the principal
East to Bather suggestions from observa
tion mid the experience of others, and from
the reasons laid down by him on his return
the plan of segregated buildiugs was
adopted. Months were spent In producing
an acceptable design, providing for indefin
ite expansion of the premises, and embrac
ing a central refectory, a school- houso and
as ninny homes as its increase of pupils
might from time to time require. Two
homes were immediately erected, plain in
exterior, but constructed in tho most sub
stantial manner and upon well considered
sanitary principles. Tho school building
■followed, amply sufficient for all pupils then
on tho rolls, although lack of funds
necessitated a deviation from the original
plan. The arrangement was such that the
capacity of the bcuqo! could, be doubled by
simply raising the roof one story. It pro
viticd for an executive and a principal's of
fice, library, clerk-roonip, ten cl.iss-rooms
nnd dressiug-rooms for both sexes. A sys
tem of electric bells and speaking tubes con
nected all the rooms with the. executive
oflice, and telephones consmunieat»a with
the h. mes, refectory and principal's resi
dence, tiy wiiicli many of the advantages of
a congregate building were combined with
the cottage plan.
No earthquake or conflagration has since
hnppened to interrupt this plan, which has
ever since been adhered to. Constant im
provements add to the use and beauty of the
buildings, notably the
Of facilities for the instruction of handi
crafts, l'rofessor Wilkinson constantly
urjjed tbe necessity of iner.-asios the effi
ciency of tho articulation and lip-reading de
partment, and at last succeeded iv obtaining
a suitable appropriation for that putprso.
No less worthy of mention is the gymnasium
presided over by a competent instructor; tlio
printing office, complete in its every detail ;
a large library, a spacious and handsomely
appointed chapel, the introduction of vari
ous new studies, and a v;ist improvement in
the grounds and premises generally.
From l)wight-wny Station, East Berkeley,
a vtalk of less thnn a mile up a slight incline
brings into view the haudsiiue brick dwell
ings, surrout.tled by carefully kept gardens
and lelievt'tl by a dense forest of eucalyptus
trees in the rear. Tho principal's residence,
a picturesque, vine-clad structure, is on the
premises, ami at any time after school hours
one may see children nboulat play, or older
pupils in groups engaged in animated con
veisiition, in which the eyes serve as ears
and the hands as tongue, or in the midst of
au enthusiastic yet silent game of base or
f»ot ball. Tbe atmosphere of the ulace is
one of peace and contentment, and the vis

Liberal Donations for Charitable
Seventh Acnnal Basquet in Aid of the Gen
eral Fund of the Eureka Benevc-
It is a well-understood fact that man is
inclined to be charitable when he has dined
generously and in good compiny, and when
additional enjoyment U lent to the repast
by the flavor of a fragrant Havana and the
dulcet strains of a string baud, tho limit to
man's benevolence is not readily ascertained.
There were over 250 men in such a condi
tion for charitable action last night at the
seventh annual banquet given by friends in
Bid of the General Fund of the Eureka Be
nevolent Association, hclfl at thfi Concordia
Club, 102 O'Fanell street. The subscrip
tions from the guests to aid in the work of
tho association amounted to about $5000, a
sum which will undoubtedly be doubled by
additional donations from men who were in
vited but could not be present. ■ The usual
donations at these banquets are never ks3
than between £8000 and §11,000.
The guests were seated at five long tables
which were covered with innumerable deli
cacies, fruits, flowers, wines, candied orna
ments in fanoy desiutSj palms, candelabra,
and a liberal supply of cut-glass vessels.
The menu was as folluws:
Eastern Oysters in the Shell.
