BUENOS ATRES, Aug. 21.— A 'dis
patch' received here from La Paz says
that reports received there show that
earthquake shocks continue at Val

confirmed from Laserena, Chile, that
much damage was done at Valparaiso
and that many persons were killed or

WASHINGTON, Aug. 18,-The rec
ords of the seismographs at the weath
er bureau taken from the instruments
this morning show that there have
been no earthquake movements here
since that of Thursday evening, and
which were undoubtedly due to the
Chilean earthquake. . ,
Of great interest to the weather bu
reau is the fact that Thursday's rec
ord shows that the heaviest east and
west. movement was at 46 minutes and
46 seconds past 7 p. m., and the strong
est north and south movements did not
occur, until eight minutes later.
The north and south movement was
the heavier, the earth movement being
over a quarter of an inch.
Because of the admirable construc
tion of buildings in Valparaiso, Mr.
Vega, the Chilean charge here, Is not
inclined to believe that the loss of life
has been heavy.
The city is one of the most modern
in South America and lacks the narrow
streets. and frail buildings which are

Harry James Succeeds In Checkmat.
Ing T««m— Prevents Produc
tion of "A Trip to the '
Cats kills"
An a sequel to tha feud between C.
B. Kolb, the German comedian, and
Harry James,' former . director of the
burlesque company At the Mason opera
house, the Kolb atid Dill aggregation
have been compelled to give up their
plans of plnylng n. "Trip to the Cats
kills" In San Francisco and are now
looking for some new and. good play
with which to recuperate their shat
tered hopes.
The feud hns been In force for sev
eral years. The trouble began when
James started for Australia with Kolb
and Dill several years ngo, and be
cause of the troubles on that trip the
men have been on decidedly unfriendly
terms since. .
James came to Los Angeles several
months ago and started work at Fisch
er's theater. Later he organized tha
Jntnes travesty stars and opened with
them nt the Mason opera house for a
summer engagement. . .
In the first plnce, because of his Rood
standing with the Weber and Fields
company of New Tork, he secured con
trol of practically all the German bur
lesque plays worth playing. Then Kolb
and Dill arrived in town and the old
trouble was renewed. !
The Kolb and Dill aggregation at
the . Hotchklss . said things about the
James people at - the Mason and the
compliment was returned. Tha rela
tions between the rival nggregatlonfl
were not helped any when kolb staged
Miss Charlotte Vidot as an automatic
doll In one of his plays, and James
filed suit' alleging that the doll danco
evening, has not arrived at the former
place. ,
The seismic disturbances on the
Chilean 1 side of the Andes continue.
Further severe shocks were felt yes
terday evening;, the first at 8:40 and the
second at 8:60. \
The director of telegraphs here has
received a telegram from La Paz,
Bolivia, announcing: that according to
a message from the chief official of the
telegraph company at Tacna, Valpa
raiso Is in flames and the earthquake
continues. . .

friends of the north.

He had hareily been «w«y a week
before Kolb Announced that h*, too,
was going to Bun Francisco, He even
went so far an to announce thnt he
had been Instrumental In causing
James tn leave Lou AngeVs, nnd he nn
nounced In an interview thnt Jnmes
had been iinfnlr to him In securing the
control of the burlesques, . nnd that
therefore he whs going north to try
to get even and do things tn the gate

It was well known here thnt Kolb nnd
Dill Intended to stage "A Trip to the
Catskllls" In the north, ns they hnd

had hoped for the same success there.
Now the following story comes from

Home one, told - James that Kolb was
going north with the Intention to dig

to have promptly got .busy with his

the first performance of the'"Catsklllß"
notice whs served that the piece, could

right to it. Then there was an explo

Kolb and James has not been benefited.

a chance to go to work, the theatrical

formancea but who became like chil
dren under the careful watch of Her
rlngton. But ■ Herrlngton is not as
young- as he once t/as, and although he
still possesses the skill and cunning of
his youth his activity Is not such as to
handle dally the. petty, squabbles and
slug fests .which often Occur In jail and
which can only be put Sown by a hearty
beating to the disturbers with much
danger and no glory to the officer. „\
So he spends his time marching the
criminals from the, county jail to de
partment 1, the criminal department of
the superior court, and with .watching
them while they are being tried. ;.".
The Chanc* '
The prime moment for a prisoner's
dash for liberty Is after he is being'led
back to Jail after having been sen
tenced. ' At that moment his - animal
rage Is uppermost, and he Is ready to
rlßk death to escape the. dark forbid
ding walls 'of a; penitentiary. .With a
murder : prisoner the ; one .; thought of
escape Is always uppermost In his. mind
and h» will, take any chance at all.-'
■ So Stackpole, tdmltted to be one of
the cleverest criminals of the age, was
given over to the charge of the deputy
sheriff, and not once during the whole
trial did the-accused man 'leave -.the
side of the officer.
1 Added • to the unusual cunning and
scheming faculties of Stackpole was his
knowledge of officers and their ways.
Ever elnce he wes a boy Stackpole has
had to do with officers of the law, and
they were his worst enemies.
Twice he had served long terms In
state' penitentiaries, and he became a
student of officers, watching them like
a hawk and planning ways to get away
from them. ; ■•
■ . Stackpole Is Strong
—Stackpole, "having spent part of his
life at hard work In the penitentiary
end the rest hard work in the open air,
has a rugged streneth which would be
terrible "In on encounter, . and would
probably be fatal to Herrlngton In case
the officer could not have . gotten , his
revolver into play. But all the same, as
with the thousands of other prisoners
handled during hiß career,' Herrington
has come through the trial with new
honors added to his long list.. i ; i
' Twice reports were made to the ef
fect that Stackpole had i attempted to
escape.- but both were unfounded. The
first time Stackpole was obeying in
structions and was advancing toward
the , bailiff to receive the handcuffs
when , some people thought he was try-
In*: to leave the coxirt.room. .'..". -/
. .The' second, time, was yesterday. ,At
the noon hour Btackpole was ! told to
put on his hat and march toward I the
side entrance to the court room. He
managed to advance several feet and
Deputy Herrinßton in keeping up with
him pushed another man, out of. the
way and some of the spectators Im
agined ' that Stackpole was trying to
leave the court room, when the truth
of the matter waß that Herrlngton was
three feet behind his prisoner all; the
while. . . ■ ,-. - ' „ '
. Enigma to Deputy ( - )
■ In speaking Of his experience with
Stackpole yesterday -Harrington said:
"I have handled hundreds of prison
ers In my time, but never a one like
Btackpole. He Is one' of the queerest
men I ever met, With other men I
have' known them In my own way
within :an hour after I had flrsUmet
them and have known Just how \o
treat them, 'but as for Stackpole/. I
must ; confess ; that , l am a»;. far, away
from him < and his , confidence now' as
I was the Ural time. l ever saw him.
"The boy is unusually • bright and
cunning. •■He .never- says much, which
Is never, a good blrii with v prisoner. > .
.."Wben 'he Is with' me every action
Hays that he wants to do what Is 'right
by me', so long as iI . am boas and so
long as he knows that; but let htm see

Makes Strange Request .
"On. the day before the last day of
argument Stackpole asked to be per
mitted to sit over close to the jury box.
He is the first prisoner that I . ever
heard make that request. I consented,
but I didn't at. first understand his
motives, for straight, before • him was
