EARTHQUAKE LOSSES HEAVY Property Worth $250,000,000 and 2000 Lives Destroyed Valparaiso, Chile, Aug. 20.—At 7:15 last Thursdy evening Valparaiso experienced an earthquake of great severity and during the night 82 shocks were felt. Most of the buildings of the city are either burned or damaged. The loss will be enormous, probably reaching 8250,000,000. Two thous and persons killed is considered to be a fair estimate of the casualties. Vina del Mar, three miles from Valparaiso and having a population of over 10,000; Quirihu, 225 miles to the southward, with a population of 255,000; Santa Limache, 15 miles to the northwest, with a population of 6500; Quillota, 25 miles to the northwest, with a population of 10, 000, and villages all around were de stroyed. Most of the damage was due to fire, which started immediately after the first shock. The whole population is sleeping in the hills, the parks and streets. Food is very scarce. Milk costs two Chilean dollars a liter, and it is almost impossible to obtain meat, even at high prices. The railroads are all destroyed. Rain, which began to fail immedi ately after the first shock, stopped an hour afterward. The nights are very cold and windy and the people sleep ing in the open air are suffering greatly. The captain of a steamship which arrived from San Francisco, says the situation here is worse than that fol lowing the disaster at San Francisco. TREMORS CONTINUE. London, Ang. 20. — In a cable from Valparaiso without a date the correspondent of the Daily Mail says: Sixty per cent of this city has been completly destroyed. The death roll is very heavy.

Santiago, Chile, Ang. 1*.— Tha latest news brought in here by refu gees from Valparaiso contradicts some of the first exagerated state ments from there, but shows, how ever, that the catastrophe was unusu ally severe. Senator Or or, one of the refugees, relates that the first shock in Valparaiso was very prolong ed and threw the entire city into in describable panic. People crowded the streets and the squares crying and lamenting. The first shock also threw down a number of buildings. The second shock was mo.e severe and resulted in the crumbling of most of the buildings in the Almen dral quarter. Immediately after the second shock the entire city was plunged into ter rifying darkness. This, however, did not last long, for the scene of destruction was soon lit up by the flames that broke out in this quarter. The light from the flames, Senator Groz continues, came as a welcome relief to the darkness. The people were in a state of terror, many be lieving that the end of the world had come. DAMAGE ON LOWER GROUND. Among the buildings destroyed were the Victoria theatre, the Bell Vista railroad station and the Club de Settember. Most of the severe damage was done on the lower grounds reclaimed from the sea. The church of the Espiritu Santo and the church of La Marced, as well as a large part of the buildings on Victoria street, were destroyed. Masses of material blocked the streets. The hills surrounding Valparaiso suffered but slightly. More than 60,000 persons have taken refuge there. That porion of the city where are the customs house and the city hall waa not seriously damaged. A large majority of the houses are not fit for habitation. The storehouses of tha customs house are almost totally des troyed. WATER AND FLOOD SCARE. The water pipes of tbs city were brnta and tha water poared tbroagb 4 ) SPOKANE A. A. C. PLAYS BALL A Well Played Game Is Lost by Coeur d'Alene The locals were taken In by the S. A. A. C. yesterday afternoon for the third time, with a score of 10 to 5. The game was an exoiting one for the first six innings, the locals making four scores in the first inning, to the delight of the tans, and not until the fourth Inning did the visitors tie this score, when the boys went wild, al lowing the Spokaneites to win four without much opposition. Daring the fifth end sixth innings neither side scored, but in the seventh the visitors brought two more tallies, making the score six to four in their favor. The locals came to bat with good intentions and for a while it ap peared as If they would tie the score again, bat they only m&nagsged to make one score, leaving the visitors in the lead by one, and in the eighth inning they netted three more, and in the ninth one more, making their to tal ten, and the total for the locals five. The grandstand was crowded to overflowing, the bleachers were in the same condition, and many found seats along the fence. There was probably the largest crowd in attend SHOULD ASSERT ITSELF Evidences are gathering in force to show that the people of Idaho intend to make a square issue with the Mormon church to roe which are to control in that state—American citizens or the polygamous apostles. The contest does not arise too noon. While this self-respecting cit izenship of Idaho lias been gathering force to make this fight, the hierarchy have been invading the stale with crime, with grafting, and with politi cal corruption. Polygamists have been protected in their offenses; they have taken new wives since the mani festo; they have continued to live and beget children in the polyagmous relation. The church has caused ap propriations of money to be made from the publie treasury to sustain its commercial enterprise. Wherever the hierarchy have had the power they have degraded the public offices and the politics to such a state of corruption that, for some of |bsr lo calities at least, Idaho stands ar raigned before the nation. The last assertion is a strong one, and yet one single instanoe will prove that it is a moderate expres sion: William Budge, who testified in Washington that he was the chief Mormon of Idaho, and was living with three wives, procured the elec tion of his own sou as judge of the district in which William Budge re sides. Another son was district at torney. Under the protection of the court and its offices, William Budge continued to defy the law. Tell that else in the United THE PLUMBERS' PICNIC The Spokane Plumbers' union fill ed the town yesterday and enjoyed a jolly time at their annual picnic. They made a triumphant entry with a special train and brass band early in the morning and contiuned to en joy themselves until late in the even ing. They must have been 500 strong. Three dancing barges of the Caras callon Bros, fleet were chartered and anchored ont on the lake and the tug Telephone pressed into commission to oarry the picnicers to and from the dock. Their band paraded the streets on ar.ivai, bat remained with the barges later in the day. The parka were filled and the streets were crowd ed, and in all the town appeared to be celebrating a second July 4. I 1 Roger* Building Completed. The Rogers building is practically completed and is S credit to the town, and adds much to the appearance of Bherman street. Tbs building mater ial used in this building is of the ci onsets s t ems variety, m e nu fac tored by Guy Bugera, whose Intention it was to damenotiato the ehswposes sod good quantise at this material, and ance of the season. A large number of these were Spokane parties who took great delight in rooting and making small beta on the batter, much money changed hands. The work of Tracy, pitcher for tha 8. A. A. C. was good, inasmuch as the locals failed to find the hits, bat Plummer did the better work of the two. Tracy allowed three men beans on balls, and has but two strikeouts to his credit, while Plummer has sev en stirkeouta and did not allow any bases on balls. During the eighth inning when the visitors were doing some heavy hitting, Captain Middle ton took Plummer out of the box and did tbs twirling himself, much to the disgust of the fans, for tbs Palouser was working steady, his curves and balls were breaking even, and while his work waa not exceptional, he waa playing good ball. In the ninth inn ing, Middleton allowed on 1 man base on ball, and struck ow out. The locals have a total of ten errors for the game, which is something unusu al for them, especially for the inflsld who have done good playing this sea son. States and see how quickly publio indignation would overthrow the criminal and corrupt jndietary! la there anywhere else in this nation where publio conscience is so dead and public sentimentality so degraded that American citizens will not con sider that Idaho must wash her skirts of this iniquity pr stand in her shame before the worldT The method which is now proposed is to make effective the constitution of the state of Idaho which prohibits any polygamist, or adhereut of a church which teaches or practices po lygamy, from voting or holding office. The Deseret News says that will dis franchise all Mormons; and the min or Mormon prints in Idaho acaept the iuterpertation made by the chief organ of the church. Bo be it then. The Idaho constitution has been ac cepted by this nation. It is expres sive of the highest sentimentalities of the country. If the enforcement of its provisions will reduce ell Mor mons in the state to their old vaaae lage, the Mornon church alone is re sponsible. Idaho people cannot do better than to wage this battle now. The proud citizenship of that spendld state should assert Itself and right the wrong before the hlerachy shall have gained such additional power, by corrupt bargaining, as to make the war more coetly and more painful to the loyal people of the state. See what a bitter conflict wages hers, and realize that you, citizens of Idaho, may redeem your state in one cam paign.- Halt Lake Tribune. it can be safely said that he has done so. The building has a full basement, is one story high, and has one store room which will be occupied by the Norquist department store, C. W. Nor quist, prop., and will be oue of the I best furnished and have one of the neatest stocks in the city. C. W. Norquist comes from Kallispel, Mont., well recommended, and is a man of business ability, making his business relations in this city wel 1 come and pleasant. The store opens on about the 25th of this month. Harden Lake Is Popular. [s Since the opening of the electric extension to Hayden lake, that place has proved itself to be the mecca of the pleasure seekers and lovers of na ture. Each day witnesses the arrival of new camping parties and fisher men, for the real fishing of the s ea so n has just commenced. Yesterday af ternoon over 600 people ware in evi dence at tha resort. Tha cam warn filled to overflowing at all t im es. The crowds will be larger until the season draws to a class, which will not be soon.
