FIRST AID TO
THE STRICKEN
There ought to be a popular response to the appeal for aid for stricken
San Francisco. As the hours go by with no additional news, conjecture is
left unchecked, and the most direful destruction seems possible. Aid will
be needed. It ought to come quickly. The Star has opened a way for the
expression of a sentiment of helpfulness so widespread in Honolulu. It has
headed a subscription intended to be a. popular subscription, with $56. The
Chamber of Commerce has taken corporate action to send a considerable
sum, but there are doubtless scores and hundreds in Honolulu, who, not
being represented in that action, would like an opportunity of expressing in
a substantial way their sympathy for the stricken city and its stricken people.
The Star has opened this opportunity. It will receive all subscriptions
offered for this purpose and acknowledge the same through its columns and
see that the money is promptly forwarded through the proper channels.
Let the subscription be prompt and generous so that as soon as communi
cation is opened, and the needs of, San Francisco known, it can be forward
ed at once.

Not a word has been received at the
cable ofllco hero about water coming
up Market street, 'San Francisco. This
Is the good news that was practically
tho only news developed by today's In
vestigations. The report of "water"
coming up Market street was an error
in receiving the tape record. Tho ex
pressions used by the hasty operator
at tho other end was "rivers ot name."
It was erroneously interpreted as "wa
ter," which is a very different thing.
The discovery of this error places un
entirely now light on tho wholo situa
tion. It leaves San Francisco Intact,
Instead of partially sinking In tho bay.
mio Idea of water coming up Market
street Indicated a subsldenco of tho
earth, and led to theories of a great
submergence of valuablo land. In the
light of the corrected record, It appears
that the peninsula of San Francisco Is
probably intact, the water front Is
probably all right except as fire has af
fected it.
NEW
There was a crowd at the cablo office
yesterday evening and many remained
there up to one o'clock this morning,
waiting for news from San Francisco.
The cable operators woro besieged with
inquiries. Early in tho evening, tho
company announced that it would ac?
