CAN'T DELIVER MESSAGES
1
Useless to Try to Gel Word to Persons
in San Francisco.
San Francisco, April 21.The deliv
ery of telegraphic message from outside
points to people in San Francisco is
an impossibility. The messenger service
of both the big telegraph companies no
longer exists. Even had the companies
an army of messengers they would be
of little value for the reason that the
people are scattered far and wide and
that a ,-journey from the ferry building
to the western addition or to the
refugee camps consumes many hours.
Most of the automobiles have been
pressed into the service of the police
or military authority and these have
only one circuitous route from the one
telegraph station at the water front
to municipal headquarters and the un
swept western portions. This is by way
of the northerly water front line.
.The only wire running out of San
Franciscothat of the Postalwas ac
cidentally cut this morning by a work
man on the cable wharf and the city
was again isolated for hours.

Timid Picture to Themselves a
Catastrophe More Awful Than
That on Pacific Coast.
Journal Special Service.
Chicago, April 21.With, the toll of
the California Earthquake aggregating
thousands of lives, when a seismic dis
turbance in the Lake Superior region
only a few hundred miles away carried
with it fatal results, and with the mem
ory of the Charleston disaster still
fresh in memory, Chicagoans today- ar*
asking:
"Is Chicago immune? Is there no
danger here of a repetition of the re
cent disaster? May we not be awak
ened some morning to find this city,
too, in a fair way to again become a
mass of ruins?"
Anxious citizens are already pictur*
ing to themselves the horrors of 1#71
duplicated on a vaster -scale, "with the
added awfulness which the lack of CQIL
gestion in those days rendered impos
sible. If an earthquake, with its ac
companying fire, ever struck Chicago,,
the extreme congestion, the number or
its skyscrapers anoV the flatness of th*
city would make a disaster ten times
more horrible than that which devas
tated San Francisco or Charleston.
"No one is warranted in saying that
Chicago will never have an earth-
uake," said Eollin D. Salisbury, pro
of geographic geology and dean
of the Ogden scnool of science at the
University of Chicago.
"The Lake Superior region, which fs
reported to have been visited T)y an
earthquake, has had many shocks, prov
ing they are to be expected in terri
tory of such geological formation.
"That part of the region ^which
touches Lake -Michigan is not subjecj
to these disturbances, and so there is
no possibility of an earthquake there
causing an earthquake wave which
would damage Chicago."

"After getting out I discovered that

AUTOS INDISPENSABLE
Prove Most Valuable in Relief Work
and Firefighting.
San Francisco, April 21.The situa
tion among, the people camped out was
the worst this morning at Golden Gate
park, where the hungry people besieged
every place where it was thought food
was stored. In some places there, was
a disposition to overrun the guards.
In the meantime every sort of vehicle
obtainable was pressed into service by
the authorities and food supplies sent
to every part of the city where people
were camped. Bread, milk, coffee were
dealt out in quantities amply sufficient
to satisfy the hungry for the time
being.
Thousands of tons of provisions were
brought over the bay during last night
and sent to the various distributing
stations in drays and automobiles.
This latter vehicle has played an
important part in the history of the
Ey
ast few days in San Francisco, first
carrying -dynamite from place to
place in the fight against the fire in
transporting troops and firemen to
places of danger, in bringing in sup

telegrams to Oakland and in a thou
sand other ways that proved valuable.
Almost every private machine in the
city is in use, many of them volun
