I wondered whether f bad better gel out, but the futilfy of any movement to save oneself came over me. and I lay nuile still, only bolding on to the bed to be kept from being thrown out. As soon a* the movements began to quiet themselves. 1 thought of moving, but each time they redoubled in intensity. At last, at the end of the first big shock, 1 hoard the voice of ogr host course. I got up and dressed as quickly as I could and rushed down to Hie Hotel hi Francis, to see what was happening Madame Seinbrich. Dr. Tevis and I got in an automobile, with which an acquaint ance was fortunately passing. On reach ing the St. Francis, we rushed up six flights, only to find Madame Seinbrich gone. We at last found her and lagged her to come with us, as Dr. Tevis' house was on the top of Nob Hill. We passed the dav there, watching the flames ap proaching and feeling earth shocks at intervals. Dr. Tevis all the time was trying to get some sort of conveyance to get ns out of town, not from fear of earth quake, but of the approaching lire. He at last found a landau, whose driver con sent eel to wait in front of the door until we must leave. The town was burning fietween us and the ferries, anil there was difficulty in getting there. "At about 8 o'clock the doctor said we had better gel out (o North Beach, as We might be surrounded by flames ami not tie able to get . away. The house was ing if I were afraid. Of ultimately surrounded by flames on Thursday and was the last to remain standing in that vicinity. It was a monument of perfect taste and burned to the ground, with all in it, in cluding our clothes, we lieing able to carry with us in our hurried night only our valuables and one change of clothing We took blankets and lav out on the ground all night, the dew faffing so heavily that wc were soaked. About ,9 o'clock nn Thursday morning Dr. Tevis said the tires had burned themselves out between us and the ferry and we could get t i Oakland and must go at once, carriage took our few belongings and two ol our party least fit for violent exer cise, while the rest of us walked. At the Oakland ferry we found a large crowd, but after waiting there three-quarters of »a hour for Hie carriage, whicli wo had outwalked and which through understanding bad wnitef fur usalanother place all the lime, wc got safely over to I 'aklnnd. There, leaving our two maids in carri a ge » , wo took a train to a suburb of ('akland, where lives a relative of Dr. Tevis. T here we found the house closed and lay about on the ground, wail ing for them to find moans of con veying us to Dr. Tevis' country place ISO unies from Oakland. As we were leaving North Beach for the ferry, the manager of our host's country place met us, having come to look for ns, and it was -VI over The some HUB lo who told us we could get away. " All the part of the town through Which "c walked was later swept by the flames, "Eich returned to destroy all that in the previous fire they had left unconsumed.

The AnthrocHa Mine Workers Are K««er for I'ohoo, slot Prcso liispatnb hr »oac)«i wires A 1 Barre, Pa., April 23. Presi dent John Mitchell called the Anthra cite Mine Workers Scale Committee together today, for the purpose of dis cussing the last reply of the operators, in which the modifications suggested by President Mitchell to the arbitra tion proposition were refused. President Mitchell declined this morning to discuss the prospects. " I do not know what will be done, " he said. "The committee must decide that. *' He would not talk of the possibili ties of a strike, except to say : "AVhatever the Scale Committee de cides must be ratified by a convention in order to be effective, and no agree ment can be reached and no strike ordered without the vote of the con vention." The eommitteemen.it is said,believe there is little hope of the operators changing their position, and some of them favor calling » convention and hiving the mine workers decide the issue. AVLile this decision would be largely governed by the advice of Presi dent Mitchell and the district offi cers, there is an apparent increase in the peace party. This, it is expected, will be led in the convention by some of the most prominent of the diistrict officers. Owing to this feeling, the strike talk is dwindling rapidly, and that if President Mitchell say r commends peace his suggestion will tie eagerly adopted. After a session lasting nearly two hours, the Scale Committee adjourned at noon. It was decided to refer all matters at issue to the Sub-Scale Com mittee, who will report to the full committee at a meeting to be held this afternoon. After the Scale Committee ad journed, President Mitchell refused to make any statement as to what took place at the meeting. rerutUs lasuea to Louts l,tolttanatalnTRia i„ 8 .
