"Not since the dawn of recorded
tnstory has there occurred a great
er cataclysm than that which on
Wednesday of this week fairly
wiped out of existence the beauti
ful and wealthy city of San Fran
cisco, the wonderful growth of
which in a half century has been
.me of the marvels of the develop
ment of American civilization.
History records but few events so
caUs trophic. The destruction of
Ilereulaneum and Pompeii, by
ashes from Vesuvius early in the
dawn of the Christian Era. and the
destruction of Lisbon by an earth
quake and tidal wave in 1764,
milled, perhaps, the frightful
and horrible calamity which has
so suddenly befallen the Queen
Citv beside the Golden Gate; but
thev certainly did not exceed in
devastation and horror the present
cataclysm; and it is only from re
n&bs and misty tradition that
there comes any word of anything
exceeding it the disappearance of
the fabled continent of Atlantis,
n'ldeli Plato states that the early
Phoenician voyagers visited and
returned with accounts of great
states and lovely cities, thit sunk
to a watery grave in the broad
At this writing the full extent
and complete magnitude of the
ierrible calamity are not known;
and with the breaking of commu
nication by wire and the horrible
paralysis that has seized upon the
city, it may le weeks before all
will be known. In every town
and city on the Pacific coast are
iigonized men and women, hoping
for -the safety of loved ones in the
doomed -city, yet fearing the worst.
Tl&e stTain of uncertainty is terri
ble upon everyone.
The terrible experience was not
cxmfined to San Francisco, as the
shock was severe in a great radius
of tutny miles surrounding, and
Oakland, San Jose, Salinas, Santa
Cruz, Santa Rosa and many other
towns have suffered terribly. Some

Teod'iro Martinez was sentenced
Wednesday by Judge Doan to ten
years in the Territorial peniten
tiary at Yuma, but he has no cause
to feel that he has been harshly
dealt with. Circumstances so
favored Teodoro that though he
shot his wife and she afterwards
died apparently from the effects of
his murderous assault, he was not
brought to trial on the charge that
might have sent him to the gal
lows. Martinez shot his wife at their
ranch near Tumacacori September
28, of last year. He was arrested
at the time and held till the April
term of dist ict court on a charge
of assault with intent to kill. The
woman was brought to Nogales,
where she recovered to a certain
extent from her wound, but never
entirely. When able to return to
her home she did so, and there she
died about a month ago, apparent
ly from the effects of the shooting.
She had been shot through the
neck and jaw and never after the
shooting was she able to partake
of solid food.
However, as the woman died
about eighteen miles from town
and the coroner and doctors were
unable to reach the place till next
day, the doctors who examined the
body were unable then to state
positively that death was due to
the wounds received five months
before. Accordingly the coroner's
jury could only bring in a
verdict to the effect that the woman
died from causes to them un
known. Thus it was that Teodoro Mar
tinez, when brought into the" dis
trict court for trial this week could

be charged only with assault with
intent to kill, the charge upon
which the grand jury at the Oct
ober term of court indicted him.
Without the accusation of the
coroner's jury, backed . by later
evidence in regard to the woman's
death last month, there was al
most no chance of a conviction on
a murder charge and the trial was
conducted on the original charge.
The jury returned a verdict of
guilty and Wednesday Judge
Doan sentenced Martinez to
ten years at Yuma.
