'I he search by tugs and larger seis went on in thick fog while the waters were combed by wireless flashes seeking an answering message from the Cobequid. Helief that the vessel might have .survived was practically abandoned whn news came from Varmouth that wrfcka'n had been picked up near there. Hut hope was renewed when ii was pointed out that the Cobequid would have been far out of her course if she went ashore in this vicinity and this hop? was strengthened when a faint win-Ie-s rail was received by the Marconi operator at Partridge Island. Th operator "thought it was from the Cobequid." The operator on the Itoyal (Jeorge lieard the message - 1 - A. f .... 1 . m . mice uni' s ai lu o ciook this morn ing.

No reply w as lu adr. Tiie belief was expressed here Wed nesday aftern oon that If the. wireless S. o.

Amon,' the wreckage that drifted ashore at Yarmouth is a sign hoard bearing the words "Keep clear of Twin Screws."- such as the missing 'ooequid carried on her stern when in port. Wireless communication with the stranded ship ceased abruptly at 'J o'clock Tuesday morning. The oper ator sent a last flickering message that the engine room of the Cobequid was Hooded. Xo trace of her has been found and her fate is in doubt. The distress cry of the Cobequid, which urged immediate aid was pick ed up by the wireless station in (Tape (Sable, across the bay, and w us relayed to a dozen vessels. They are now struggling, against an icy gale and mountainous seas to reach the, loca tion given by the Cobequid. The. wrecked steamer was bound for St. John. X.

Ac companied by thunderous earthquake shocks the eruption of the volcano Sakura-Jima. which devastated the J Island of Sakura and overwhelmed j tho city of Kagoshima withtremend- ous loss of life, continued today. Government dispatches from the south reported that all the Ameri- can in the danger ine had escaped. Thfre were a number of other for eigners in the district, however, who have not been accounted for. Many of the 100,000 homeless were injured in their flight and sailors are being landed from the warships to care for them. Nearly all the food in the neigh borhood of Kagoshima was destroyed i and famine is adding its terrors to tho calamity. A summary follows: The city of destroyed as a of the disaster is as Kagoshima is totally result of the eruption of Aukuro-Jima. Mount Kirishima, SO miles north of Kagoshima, is in a state of violent eruption. Mount Asama, in central Japan, has begun to erupt. The state of the pub lic mind cannot be described. Not withstanding the fact that 10,000. OOu Japanese in the njrthern islands are near starvation as a result of famines, that has been forgotten in the new calamity that has over whelmed the kingdom. Information Lacking. The fact that the telegraph lines have been practically put out of commission is responsible icr the lack of definite information as to the ac tual number of dead and the extent of the damage. It is believed, how ever that many thousands of lives must have been the toll of the calam ity resulting from the eruption of Auraka-Jima. Some tenor-stricken fugitives from the island of Aurara-Jima came to the island of Kiushiu Tuesday night and brought word that fully 5.000 men, women and children must have been killed. They declared that 10. 000 persons remained on the island after the first warning had been given by the volcano. Forests Are on Fire, add to the terror of the night forest lires are reported to been set by the molten lava th volcanoes and it is thought To great have from that many of those who succeeded in getting away from actual harm Irom the flying rocks and lava have been trapped by the blazing forests. Prof. Omori, head of the depart ment of seismology in Tokio univer sity, one of the foremost men in his line in tho whole world, declared Tuesday night that there was every indication that the activity of the volcanoes throughout the Japanese is lands would continue for some time. The violence of the eruption was so great that a shower of ashes fell in Nagaski, which is 90 miles from the volcano. The story of an eye witness sent here Tuesday declared that the great volcano began its activity when a lurid ilame shot thousands of feet into the air. Then the whole top of the mountain seemed to rise and molten lava and rocks of all size were hurled through the air in every direction. When the witness last looked upon the mountain, he de clares, it looked like a gigantic piece of set fireworks. The lava flowing down Its sides made the mountain glow from base to summit.

A great twentieth century temple is be ing built out here under the clear, blue southern California skies that a modern damson may shatter it to the ground. A modern Delilah, Delilah-like only in beauty, has come all the way from New York, from coast to coast, to be a spectator and a participator! To be more explicit, the story of Samson and Delilah, the Riblicul story with all Us dramatic values and scenic spectacles, is now in tho process of being transferred to the moving pic ture screen. Vivid scenes and striking climaxes in which the destruction of the temple and the slaying of the Philistines will be graphically and realistically por trayed, are now being made. The role of Samson, the strong man, is being interpreted by J. Warren Kerrigan, whose popularity as a "movie" idol is as far-famed as the photoplay itself. To give added in terest to the film, Katherine Kerrigan, Jack's sister, is playing opposite to him in the character of Delilah. Py special arrangements, she left the "Everywoman" company in New York, with which she has been playing for the Iast year, to take this part in FIND PART OF LOOT; MAY CATCH THIEVES Sihorwaiv Stolen From Walworth Home Located at Pawn Shop Taken liy (Jan- Infectives have recovered $10 worth of the silverware stolen from the residence of Mae Walworth at 3 2;J W. Wayne st., and unraveled the first threads of a clue which, it is be lieved, will lead to the apprehension of the thieves, who are thought to be connected with a number of similar robberies in northern Indiana. The thieves entered the Walworth home three weeks ago, while the own er was out of the city. A broken win dow warned the police of the rob bery. They were handicapped in their efforts to locate the burglars by the absence of Miss Walworth and it was not until a few days ago that they received a list of the missing articles which they soon found part of the loot in a South Rend pawn shop. Full descriptions of the men were secured and Investigation indicated that they are the same that commit ted robberies at Laporte and Elkhart. The two are known to the police and it is believed they are now in a near by city. HITTING THE MARK To aim high is commend able but it's important to reach the mark. It's easier to attain the. mark if the world your world knows what you are aiming at; if those, who have need for what you have to sell are informed as to what you have to offer. It matters not whether you present realty. business chances, your services or op portunities for buying, sell ing or renting get in touch with those with whom you may have profitable business dealing1.

To those who question the real ex pense and work attached to the pro duction of a big picture play like "Samson and Delilah" this picture, showing a scene in the process of con struction, may be very interesting. Real carpenters, real nails, real saws, real hammers and real lumber lot of it were being used in the building of the temple the day I visit ed the west" coast studios. I saw the men at work just as you see them here. Kerrigan and Director MacDonald both told me that there would be something like COO people used in the picture for the big scenes. They es timated the cost of producing the temple scene, alone, at about $5,000, and the cost of the entire picture at $15.-000. They figured about a month for the construction of the buildings, props and scenery for the picture, and an other month for production. The completed picture will be in four reels. The story will follow the Pib lical story quite closely, being as accu rate in costuming and scenes as time, thought and money can make them.
