AN EARTHQUAKE SHOCK SCARES KODIAK PEOPLEj The Alaska Coast Company s steam-' or Bertha came Into port at 1ft:30 last night for the purpose of taking i on fuel. The run down was marked by severe weather par: ot the way and when off Ml. Falrweather, the vessel nin into a terrific gu'.e In which the contending vinds and heavy seas made progn.es slow. First Assistant Engineer Dore gives an account of a most unusual occur rence: While the vessel was steam ing through Uzlnka Narrows at about i 10 o'clock on the night of Nov. 7, j all on board were aroused by a vig orous shock to the- vessel. It seemed that the ship must have struck an un charted reef or a submerged Iceberg, j The disturbance lasted but a short time, however, and the vessel kept moving along without showing evi dence of being disabled in any way. (t was then realized that there had been a terrific earthquake. Upon arrival at Kodiak this was j confirmed by the people of that place who had not yet recovered from the excitement, which the seismic disturb ance had occasioned. There were three distinct shocks In Kodlak, un usually violent, lasting more than 60 seconds. Many of the frightened pop ilace thought that the end of the world was come. The Bertha came direct from Kodiak and is bound for Seattle, but will stop at Chomley for a cargo of salmon. Ira Cohn, formerly of the Humboldt, Is purser. Mr. Dore says a Swede, whose name he could not recollect committed sui cide at Afognak on November 3, and the case is being . investigated by Deputy Marshal Armstrong. Everything is quiet at Kodiak. The fish pack is all in and shipped, and people settled for the winter. Mt Kattnai was active about three weeks ago. DEVELOPMENT WORK NOW ACTIVE AT HAWK'S INLET Doctor Damourette. O. H. Norman. ? Dr. Bennett and Wm. Norman re- I turned to Juneau in a launch last night from Hawk's inlet. 1 Doctor Damourette. stated that he and the gentlemen with him had been down at Hawk's island for some weeks doing assessment work on some quart/ claims. The properties 1 in question he says contain large bod- 1 ies of low grade free milling ore. ! Considerable progress has been made 1 toward developing the property. 1 Three large buildings have been j i erected; two on the beach and one ; at an elevation of 3.000 feet. Also a good road has been built for a dis tance of four miles. 'i A diamond dritl will be brought up J1 in February and it is the intention 1 to crosscut the large vein. If it 1 tion of 2,000 feet and there is plenty of timber available which will be of provei all right a tunnel will then be driven and a stamp mill erected on the property. The mine has an eleva great value should the ore prove good. It was the intention of the party to go out to the Bar this morning to look over some placer ground which was located two years ago. Dr. Damour ftte says he has thoroughly prospect ?d the placers on the Bar and is sat isfied about the values; the only problem is to save the gold. He thinks this problem will be solved by installing a Clark gold sav ing machine, which is to be done this winter or early in the spring. The Doctor and associates have 240 acres located on the Bar.
