Lieutenant Colonel M. M. Og
den. N. G. C. (retired), serving as is
sue officer in this city, has prepared a
detailed account of the work ac
complished by a portion of the State
militia in service in San Francisco.
This report will be filed In the Salts
Archives. It follows:
"The National Guard of California
furnished the first food, medical re
lief and shelter to the thousands ren
dered homeless by the recent disaster.
"It is fitting at this time to place on
record specifically the work of the
First Battalion of Coast Artillery dur
ing the terrible scenes which immedi-
ately followed the earthquake to typi
.\u25a0rally illustrate the spendid service rer.
t dered by the citizen soldiery — services
which have heretofore not been ade
. quately appreciated by the people al
large, although there are tens of thou
sands of men, women and children who
received* food, shelter and medical aid
at a time when they were hom/sless,
destitute and almost reduced to des
peration, who will remember those Na
tional Guardsman with the deepest
gratitude all their lives for their self
sacrificing devotion, unwearying kind
ness and helpfulness at a time whun
they were helpless, starving, sick, and,
In scores of Instances, suffering from
Injuries of a more or less serious na
"The First Battalion of Coast Artil
lery assembled at its armory at 11
o'clock a. m. on April 18. Notwith
standing the fact that the homes o*
fully SO per cent of the mem
bers of the command were in
flames, these National Guardsmen
assembled for duty promptly. They re
mained at their armory on Ellis street
for thrree hours awaiting Instructions
from Mayor Schmltz and Chief of Po
lice Dinan. Not receiving instruction",
the commanding officers of companies
A, B, C and D. constituting the bat
talion. Captains Farless, Ross, Miller
and Grattan, held a conference and
decided to distribute- their commands
through the district threatened by fire
for patrol duty. A detachment of fifty
men under Captain Farless was imme-
sent to Broadway jail and took
charge of the 250 prisoners confined
there — -vicious characters accused of
all crimes In the calendar. As the jail
was surrounded by fire, the turnkeys
were contemplating a general release
of these prisoners when Captain Fax
less surrounded the jail, marched out
the prisoners and escorted them tinder
guard to Fort Mason, where they wero
turned over to the custody of fh*t
United States authorities
"Guard details were made for the
storeff of Shreve & Co. and other large
jewelry establishments, and, in* re-
spor.ee to request of Colonel Morris
of the regular army. lieutenant Cobbe
with & detachment was sent to Fourth
and Townsend streets to assist Cap
tain Altman. with & small detachment
of regulars, in quelling & riot.
"In the meantime, the hospital de
tachment of the battalion, under
charge of Dr. Emm&l, Sergeant Weins
and Miss Smith, at the head of *tx
trained nurses, proceeded to Mechan
ics' Pavilion to aid In administering
to the maimed and Injured in that tem
porary hospital. The battalion . then
established headquarters at Jefferson
"On Thursday afternoon and even-
I' \u25a0 ing several large detachments . of mo .
under Lieutenants Hyer. Cofer and
Glllman proceeded to capture all
trucks and wagons available. With
this hastily improvised wagon train,
they went to all the ; large grocery
establishments and 'warehouses that
were in the pathway of the flames,
and in a majority of cases with the
hearty consent and co-operation of
ttoe owners of the doomed property,
they received provisions and supplies
from these burning buildings.. In a
majority of Instances the structures
were already In flames. These, pro
visions were removed to Jefferson
Square and placed under guard. In
the meantime Jefferson Square was
crowded with thousands of refugees,
panic stricken and many of them from
sick beds and scores suffering from
burns, maimed and injured from fall-
Ing bricks, etc
"The members of the battalion gave
up their tents to these suffering peo
ple and distributed their blankets and
oveercoats to cover the sick and help
less women and children who were
Iyir.g on the bare ground.
"In tae meantime the hospital corps,
having been driven from the Mechan
ic*' Pavilion by the flames, had re
moved to Jefferson Square and pro
ceeded to administer to the Injured.
• "Details of men .were sent out In
all directions to search for volunteer
physicians, surgeons and nurses, and
many lives were saved and suffering
alleviated by the tireless efforts of
the hospital detachment In this hastily
improvised hospital.
"Early in the morning of, tht
succeeding day a squad was detailed to
make coffee, drawing from the stores
which had been supplied by the quar
termaster train on the previous even
ing., and thousands were given hot cof
fee and bread during the mornlnj
hoars. All day long coffee and bread
were issued at Jefferson Square to the
"In the meantime (Thursday. 2 p.
.m.). the wind drove the flames from
the burning buildings toward Jeffer-.
«m Square, and the efforts of the sol
diers were taken up In subduing the
panic among the thousands of terror
stricken people who had -found shel
ter under the trees In Jefferson Square
and who were now apprehensive that
*- the trees and tentagc would catch fire!
k_The Fire Department was fighting
back the flames that were swooping
'" down on Eddy street >and \ Van " Ness
. avenue, and had vainly, appealed '- 'to
scores of men to aid them in handling
the hose I. lines. ' . The firemen -finally
asked Major Keesling ; to . aid ; them to
get volunteers in handling ; the hos<».
at the firemen were .-dropping; from
sheer exhaustion. Major Keesllng-
made a direct appeal to the crowd of
bystanders, and only two or three vol
unteered. He then drew his revolver,
and passing along the line of the
crowd, quickly pressed ICO men into
service on the hose line, and the march
of the Came; was stayed and Jeftersun
Square, with its thousands of heip
less humanity, was saved from de
"In the meantime Lieutenant O'Hara,
the adjutant of the battalion, was at
the other end of the line with a
dynamite squad destroying buildings
in the path of the flames. Major Kees-
Hr.g on Thursday evening found that
Jefferson Square was becoming too
congested and ordered his company
commanders and subalterns/ to adviso
the people to move out to Golden Gats
The battalion was lormed in line,
and with its great train of wagon
loads of provisions and supplies, which,
in the meantime, had been largely aug
mented by the untiring efforts of Liea
tenants Hyer, Roper, Gillman and oth
ers, they took up the march for
Golden Gate Park, followed by thou
sands of the refugees, who cheered
the gallant boys in blue as they never
cheered before. When the command
reached Golden Gate Park It proceeded
to the tennis courts. The provisions
and supplies were unloaded and placed
under guard and the wagons immedi
ately returned to the burning district
and were aagin laden with supplies
and comforts where the same could be
secured. In many Instances, mer
chants, as stated before, besought the
artillerymen to take their stores from
the threatened houses and distribute
them among the needy. The teamsters
in charge of the wagons making up
this quartermaster's train, as well as
the owners of trucks, carts and ve
hicles of all descriptions, volunteered
their services and did noble work in
the colletcion, and position of these
food supplies to the Golden Grate Partc.
"In the meantime there were prob
ably 75,000 people scattered through
Golden Gate Park. Few. very few, had
provided themselves with any shelter;
they had fled to the park te error
stricken, and were In a state of panic
lying under the trees, women and chil
dren of tender years huddled together
for warmth on the bare ground and
shivering with cold. Under one tree
was a woman suffering the pangs of
approaching motherhood; a short dis
tance away an old man dying from a
fractured skull caused by a falling
brick had been* carried to the park by
his sons on a shutter. These Insrtanceb
were duplicated in all sections, and.
without food, shelter or fires and with
a sprinkling of the. vicious element o!
the San Francisco slums scattered
among them, these people were doomed
to a night of privation and horror.
"Major Keesling.- with bis company
commanders, sent out detachments *o
gather wood, pressed In volunteers and
put them to work making fires to alle
viate the privations of the women
and children. The remainder of tHe
command were placed on patrol duty
to protect those helpless women and
children from the depredations and as
saults of unscrupulous scoundrels, for
whom th« halter or bullet was & death
too merciful,
"The few remalninf overcoats and
tents and blankets that were owned
by the troops were quickly distributed
enlisted men, who remained on duty
enlisted • men, whho remained on duty
all night in their thin khaki uniforms,
protecting and aiding and guarding
these suffering people.
"The trained nurses under Dr. Arm
mal and Mias Smith, the nurse of th*
battalion hospital, together with other
hospital attaches, gathered all the vol
unteer nurses they could secure and
spent the night in aiding, the afflicted
and sick and suffering..
"Early In the morning began the
distribution of : provisions, which had
been gathered in enormous quantities
at the tennis courts. Captain Miller,
& veteran Qfficer of the Philippines and
a splendid officer (I might say here
the major portion . of this ' battalion Jif
made up of . veterans of the Philip
pine war), began the work of distribu
tion, and when detailed by General
Koster to this relief work I found
Captain Miller and, his men supplying
food to thousands.. We quickly. broke
open seven or , eight additional, en
trances to the tennis courts . and es
tablished eight or ten lines of people
In order that they might receive food
"In the meantime the Improvised
supply trains under Lieutenants Hyer,
Glllman "and Cofer "and Private Young,
all of whom seamed to be absolutely
tireless and hone of whom . had / any
sleep during the entire period, were
still with their corps of noble-heart
ed teamsters at work making contin
uous ' trips to the ' flame-stricken city,
gathering up provisions and supplies
from every available source.
"This relief work began at Jefferson
Square and was continued for three
days, and food was; issued to tens of
thousands of people. No man, woman
or child was sent away hungry while
there was a pound of food in the ten
nis courts.
"In the meantime these : gallant,
young artillerymen were subsisting on
hot coffee and crackers, taken at odd
intervals. -.
"The battalion was 'then ordered jo
establish quarters at Haight and
Cole streets. As .they . had* given away
their tentage, the boys i secured lumf
ber andput up some hastily- improvised
shelters for themselves.
*-'A distributing station was estab
lished* • here, and the work"; of Raiding
the suff erlng. continued. . In the mean
illme the - Second Infantry had " arrived
at this, station, and Colonel; Seymour
of that .regiment was soon In command
of the 'district. ; Eight lssuins stations
were quickly, established; and; day. after
day saw eight- lines^of | people stream-;
ing up to these' distributing points for,
bread arid such provisions as the re
lief trains" of [the commands could se
cure; from; any;arid' allx sources.*
r \u25a0 :' ••Lieutenant* Dailey.. of the 1 Second In-
fan try was added to the relief . train; i
and did splendid work.
"Chaplain Miel (and his name should
be written in letters of gold) came to
me for service in the relief work. The*
chaplain adopted all the babies In'thc
park and personal investigations wer«
made in every direction : by him' and
the commissioned and non-commission
ed officers and privates through the
entire district to ascertain those who
were in, acute destitution.
"I have records of thousands of cases
of this character which were uncov
ered by the unflagging arid [ noble
hearted, efforts of Chaplain Miel and
the officers and men of these com
mands. -
"Stories of suffering that seem al
most incredible were reported. 'The
Sister Superior of St. Francis Orphan
age came to us with tears in her. eyes
asking for bread for 130 children rang
ing from 2 to 14 years. They got it.
The inmates of St~ Mary's Hospital,
sixty-five patients suffering from pneu
monia, a colored orphanage of fifteen
children— all in the same condition.
Down in a deserted corner of the pan
handle Chaplain Miel found three wo
men lying on the ground with a linen
sheet over them. It was a gran/1
mother,' daughter and granddaughter,
and the grandmother was 92 years old.
"We* secured a supply of fresh milk
from. one of the outside dairies, and
every morning, it was a heart-rending
sight to see the distribution of th*
supply of milk we received among
mothers and children -at Chaplain
Miel's tent. There was only so mu:h
milk and ; it could only go so far, and
some had to go hungry.
"The shock of the earthquake had
affected many women who ' were nurs
ing babies,: and they were unable \u25a0,] to
give nourishment to their little ones,
bo milk was . very precious.
"Over on ' Ellis street was a blind
man 67 years old with a wife 65 years
old and bedridden. They lay in a de
serted flat and were unable to go out
for provisions until their cries attract
ed the attention of a soldier on the
street. In a lot off Oak street a' widow
with four children, the eldest 12, were
found sleeping on the ground under
a rag carpet tent. But there are thou-'
sands of such cases that were i-s
lleved by the National Guard' in this
particular district. On the dreadful
night when the rain fell •\u25a0 and: pburod
down on those helpless women and
children in the park, .who were shel
tered under tents made of . linen sheets
and table covers, in many cases v the
suffering was unparalleled." Chaplain
Mielyand those boys did. everything 'n
their power., to".. help them; they gave
them everything they had.
"While the officers •of the wagon
train were able' to supply provisions
and supplies it was promptly distrib
uted, and when we found these sources
failing we appealed to all sources for
aid, and, in some cases unavallingly.
"I want to thank Major Devol, Cap
tain Langan and Lieutenant Cabell of
the regular army for their prompt
action at times of urgent need. . While
many deserve appreciation, these gen
tlemen especially were un trammeled
by red tape in the face of human
suffering." \u25a0
Clever Swindler Rents House and

BERKELEY. May 13. — Egbert
Malnard, a refugee from San Fran-,
dsco, has perpetrated a double-edged
trick upon a squad of Chinese and a
landlord of Berkeley, for which ex
ploit the police now are on his trail.
During the fire Mainard . came over
on a boat' from San Francisco on
which were a party of Chinese, f Quong
Toy, their leader, conversed with
Mainard r and told him of i his plan to
secure quarters for the party in; Berke
ley. \u25a0He expected difficulty because of
the reluctance of property, owners to
rent to Chinese. Mainard ; \u25a0 promised
to "flx that all up." He rented a large
house for Quong Toy, at 1545; Hopkins
street, belonging to O. J. Truman, pay;
ing $25 deposit. , Then "the guileless
Quong -Toy was Induced to pay In ad
vance a month's rent; amounting to
$100, believing that" Mainard; ;wai

skipped. J .
