The searches used a novel contriv ance which greatly aided them, not withstanding the fact that the search was unsuccessful. : This contrivance was an iron tube about three inches in diameter and about tuirty- feet in length. : A mason jar. was screwed on to one end of this and in the jar was .placed an electric 'lamp. - The lamp was men towerea inio me waier ana ,the river bottom was made plainly vis ible to the searchers.

It (is in many places' 15 to 20 feet deep (and extremely - swift.

BODIES Lace Curtains! ! Curtains! IT STRONG. SHOTJBY PATROL San Francisco Thrown Into a State- of Excitement by Killing of a Merchant. ALL FIRES ARE NOW OUT DRENCHING RAIN ADDED TO THE MISERIES OF THOSE WHO ARE NOW COMPELLED TO LIVE IN THE OPEN. Publishers' Press San Francisco, April 23. Victims of the earthquake and fire remaining in this city, were thrown into a state of great excitement today by the killing of H. C. Tilden, a prominent merchant of this city and a member of the relief Committee, by members of a Citizens Patrol. - Mr. Tilden was shot' while riding in an automobile and two other men, with . him were wounded. Three of the guards were arrested and the greatest indignation prevails. Many people have been driven in sane because of horrors which they have passed and a temporary deten tion hospital has been established in the, Sacred Heart school. The authorities have accepted the offer of Col. T. Wain-Morgan Draper to supervise the erection of a huge bar racks, accommodating 5,000 for the ref ugees at the Presidio. A Drenching Rain. Thousands of Franciscans, home less, sleep in the open, if they sleep at all, in a dreching rain last night, add ing untold misery and suffering to those whose cup is already full. Shortly after midnight it' began to rain, and continued for three hours from a drizzle at times to a heavy downpour for a few minutes. Thou sands of people, men, women and chil dren camped in the parks, squares and open lots, were awakened by the rain dashing in their face. . Wherever possible women and chil dren were crowded and huddled into the canvas waterproof tents,' such as are on hand. Little, however, could be done, as the facilities are entirely inadequate to house all the homeless. Large numbers sought, the protestion of trees and bushes. Some placed a few boards over their heads to ward off the water! Citizens .Form Vigilant Band. One hundred and thirty, citizens have banded together as vigilants, un der command of Dr. Donald McCuI loch Gedge, to preserve order during the restoration Arrangements are making alrdy for the city election next fall, when a governor will be ehosen. , Fully -30,000 refugees are tuing fed by the government at the Presidio and North Beach. Barracks for 15, 000 are being erected in Golden Gate Pa-k. 1 Conflicting reports concerning the fires 'have been circulated. One said that a fire which seemed to have died out, started with renewed violence in the coal bunkers north of the ferry building shortly after midnight, and unless subdued would reach the ferry. This, however, proved hot so and all fires in the city are now out More Slight Shocks Felt. More slight shocks have been felt in Imperial Valley, the latest early today. Burying' squads' are busy all over the city. Refugees are flocking on all trains away from the scene of. ruin and blasted hopes. Their railroad passage is free to all parts of the country. Fear of epidemic according to Gen eral Fun s ton , is abating. Sanitary conditions are improving in the camps at Golden Gate ' Park and throughout the city and but few cases of smallpox or typhoid have been found . WEATHER INDICATIONS. Indiana Fair , warmer Tuesday; Wednesday partly cloudy and warmer; increasing south winds. Ohio Fair Tuesday and Wednes day with rising temperatures, winds becoming southeast and increasing.

The first installment of the money will be sent today to the headquarters of the Red Cross organization, where it will be used to the best advantage. In every mail, letters are received containing bills or checks "which the sender requests to be used in swell ing the fund. Less than $150 is need ed before the total is $1,000 and it is expected that this amount will be reached'within a day or two. With the, number of different or ganizations soliciting funds from Richmond people for the same grand purpose it is remarkable that so much cash has been contributed to the Pal ladium. All the different fraternal or ganizations are making assessments upon their members, the churches are asking' special ' contributions, the Women's League is busy and the Catholic Churches are collecting large sums of money and much clothing to be sent through the diocese headquar ters. All together, orer $2,000 in mon ey and as much more in clothing and bedding have been contributed by Richmond people. INVITATION TO KIBBEY Directors of Commercial Club Invite y Him to Speak to the Club Tomorrow Night. A secret meeting of the directors of the Commercial Club was held last evening, with a full attendance. Sev eral important questions were taken up, among them being that of locat ing in Richmond the Remy Electric Company of Anderson. Nothing was given out for publication on this mat ter. A formal invitation was drawn up to be sent to the Hon. Joseph H. Kib bey, Governor of Arizona, whi is vis iting here, asking him to address a public meeting of the club tomorrow night. Gov. Kibbey lias already signi fied his intention or addressing the club and a large attendance of mem bers and business men is expected. Governor Kibbey will choose his own subject. MANY BELATED MESSAGES CALIFORNIA'S HEARD FROM Richmond People Receive Telegrams From Relatives and Friends and Their Fears are Thus Quieted. Belated telegrams from San Fran cisco and other cities and towns in the California earthquake zone are now reaching Richmond. They come from former Richmond people who have relatives and friends still in the city and the messages received have done much to quiet the fears that have been entertained. Many of fie mes sages were filed the day following the disaster but only within the past twenty-four hours have the telegraph lines been opened so as to admit pri vate messages. There are still num erous former Richmond people who have not been heard from but this fact does not mean that they have been injured. Seeing that telegraph service was out of the question many of these persons probably wrote letters and these have not been received, though today there should be a liberal con signment of California mail to reach Richmond. T ARE PUT IIP (Continued From Page One.) busy," is another notice inked on a pasteboard box hanging on the only standing column of what had been a handsome business block on Geary street. " and Company will occupy these quarters," is another sign orna menting the complete ruin of one bus iness house. Buildings To Be Rehabilitated. In the wholesale and retail district many street buildings will be rehablle itated. Steel structures are espec ially of a permanent character. This is thought to be the case with the Chronicle building, the Call, City of Paris, Mutual Bank, Claus Spreckles building, Chamber of Commerce, Newman and Levyson, and many oth ers. It is even thought possible that the Palace Hotel structure ruins may be remodeled. In some causes the skin of brick has fallen, leaving the steel frame intact. Remains of Fire Put Out. By 1 o'clock this afternoon the fire which threatened to wipe out what remained of San Francisco along thf water front was out and with the ex ception of a few sporadic blazes in the burnt district the conflagration was over. All that remains of San Francisco is a fringe of buildings along the docks, t:ie residence sec tion in the hills along the southern boundary and the western addition. Those houses that are intact are be ing turned into temporary hospitals or -crowded with rerugees. Many of these houses suffered from earth quake and are unsafe. Fires for cooking are allowed only on the streets and the houses are cold and for the most part are being stripped by their occupants prepara tory to a hasty flight. Hundreds of children are lost and are being cared for. Some of them can tell their names, , but m Ay cannot and may never be restored to their parents. Street Cars Begin Runs. Street cars were running over the Fillmore street . line on the edge of the burnt district and the work of put ting up poles ' was begun on Market street and by Wednesday it is hoped to have cars running. Bread lines con tinue to form and will do so three times a day for. some weeks. It will taxe six months to make' a fair begin ning on the work of reconstruction and refugees will have to be fed by the relief committees. The insurance adjusters are on the ground nowin great number and are busily figuring on the approximate total loss from an expert standpoint. Total Loss Half Billion. According to their estimate the to tal loss will be hair a billion dollars. On real estate improvements alone the loss is $350,000,000 on which, the insurance companies are obligated to pay at least $175,000,000.- To this must be added the value of practically all the stocks of the wholesale and big retau stores which were all destroy ed. Every one of the Insurance men are positive in their assertions that all obligations will be promptly met where there are no . complications arising from "earthquake clauses," and they assert that no undue advan tage will . be taken on account of such reservations in the policies. COL HADLEY IN THE CITY Former Richmond Newspaper Man Now Publishing a Paper at Sid ney, Ohio. . Col. James A. Hadley. a former well known Richmond newspaper man, is now in the city on a business trip. He is Col. Hadley as of old and just now is especially happy over his new paper, a weekly which he is pub lishing at Sidney, Ohio. The first Is sue o fthe new paper which Is called the Sidney Sentinel was made last Saturday and it Is in every way a credit to the publisher. . In September the. paper will be made into a daily and there is every indication that it will be a successful venture. The writings of .. Col. . Hadjey alone , would BOAke the paper of much value. EMPORARY BUILDINGS FRANCIS ROOTS THE "BEE" Connersville Man is an Avowed Candidate for Gov ernor. HIS FRIENDS ARE ACTIVE. CLAIM MADE THAT ROOTS AND CONGRESSMAN WATSON ARE RIVALS FOR COVETED PLACE WHAT ENQUIRER DISHES UP. The Indianapolis correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer who always writes entertainingly if not always ac curately dishes up the following to his paper: "If Congressman James E. Watson, from the Sixth District, desires to be come a candidate for the Republican nomination for Governor two years hence he may have some trouble in getting a solid delegation from his own bailiwick. "Mr. Watson is very popular with his constituents and is being urged by hundreds of party workers to become gubernatorial candidate, but the chan ces are now that the Sixth will have another aspirant in the person of Francis T. Roots, of Connersville. "As between the two men it is not likely that a majority of the party workers of the district would be long in choosing in favor of Mr. Watson, but Mr. Roots has some followers and could keep him from getting a solid delegation. Mr. Roots is quite sure now that he is about to be urged by an overwhelming mass of Republicans to enter the race. "He frankly admits it and says that he is on the verge of beginning his campaign. Mr. Roots, however, has manifested such a persistent penchant to run for office that a report that he is now confident that he is the logical candidate for Governor is not surpris ing to his district. He has taken a fresh inventory of. his public career, which is always in his mind's eye, and is now -quite convinced that he is just the man to succeed Governor Hanly and give the state a real, for-sure busi ness administration. He is taking the matter very seriously, and it will be surprising if he doesn't announce his candidacy before the present campaign is well under way. "The probability of Mr. Roots be coming a candidate is plainly irritat ing to Mr. Watson's numerous friends in the district. They are confident they could, beat Mr. Roots if it came to a fight, but they don't want a dlvis ion. It has been suggested that Mr. Roots's desire to hold office might be appeased if Mr. Watson should offer to step aside in his favor and give him his seat In Congress. "From what can be learned, how ever, if the Sixth has a gubernatorial candidate it will be Mr. Roots, as Mr. Watson told his friends during the recent Republican State Convention that he prefers to remain in Congress a while longer. He is pleased with his work as" whip of the House and is hopeful that some day he will succeed Congressman Cannon as Speaker of the House." MRS. WHITM0RE . SPOKE One of the "Door of Hope" Managers at New York Delivered Address on Her Work. Mrs.- Whltmore, one if the manag ers of the New York "Door of Hope," a hme for fallen women, addressed a small audience last evening at the First English Lutheran- Church on the subject and purposes of her work. Mrs. Whitmore also spoke in the af ternoon, telling graphically of what is experienced by the tenement work ers while they are at their rescue work. Mrs. Whitmore's institution has ac complished much good in the large metropolis, and now other cities are planning homes" after the one in New York City. Hundreds of fallen women are brought in and cared for annually and the work is growing. Women in the lowest stages are tenderly cared for and induced to leave their mode of living and either help in the rescue work or go away somewhere and lead honest lives. Many of them desire to help their unfortunate sisters, how ever, and stay with the "Door of Hope," accomplishing great good. York State Votes $250,000. Publishers' Press Albany, N. Y., April 23.

With nothing but their voices saved from destruction In the San Francisco disaster, the stars of the Metropolitan Grand Opera Com pany reached Chicago this afternoon. Their eyes were still large with the horrors of the scenes they had wit nessed and tongues and hands were all inadequate to tell their experiences. Overjoyed from their safe delivery from the disaster, they counted as nothing their loss of $150,000 in perV sonal effects and more than ' double that amount in scenery aad theatrical property.

' He advis ed the singer to an immediate removal to a hospital on her arrival here. The singers were all stopping at the St. Francis and Palace hotels and while their experiences were practical ly the same, their way of telling of them varies according to the different temperaments. Alfred Hertz, the Wagnerian con ductor, said: "It was too dreadful to describe. I don't know just how I got out of the-Palace Hotel, where I was stopping.

"My room was on the sixth floor of the Palace " hotel," she said. "The events of that morning come back to me hourly as an awful dream. I re member being awaKened very early in the morning. I was nearly, thrown out of ray beiL There was a terrible noise - that I could not understand and everything was - rocking and swaying like a ship at sea, only with an uncanny violence that struck ter rof tp my. heart. "Added to the awful, Indescribable rumbling and grinding noises, as If the bones of the earth were creaking, and being crunched In the Jaws of some monster, were shrieks of terri fied people. t , Plastering Fell Off. "As I half leaped and was half thrown from my bed, the chandelier of my room fell nearly striking me. Great stlrps of plaster on the ceiling peeled off in grotesque fashion' and seemed to curl and writhe through" the spaces of the room as they fell. Some of them hit me and I vaguely remember dodging others. ' , "Out In the corridors of the hotel people were rushing and the shuffling and stumbling of their feet added to the confusion of bewildering noises. . By this time too, fire alarm gongs' were ringing and whistles were blow ing. I ran out into the hallway clad in nightclothes, followed by my maid. We ran , down into the corridor on the first floor.; Tber were . jcrowds of guests In' a panic. No one 'seemed to kpbw "wbaCbad happened. The most foolish things were said and the most idiotic questions asked. v "Across the street a fire had bro ken out, and the heat was so Intense that it almost scorched me,- even while I stood inside the hotel. Some men returned to the upper floors and 1 followed them, going to my room to attend to my tmdkm.f V dressed my self hastily and so did my maid. Then we ran out again and securing a carriage drove to friends of mine on Telegraph HI1L From there we could see what seemed to be the entire city In a blaze."
