DISTRICT VISITED BY SEVERE QUAKE I lie Tanauu district seems to have migrated the earthquake zone trem or having passed over the camp i Saturday night w ith fatal results to one person, while it was followed by repeated shakings of the earth's rust during the next 24 hours. Other quakes have been felt in the past, usually during very cold weath er, but the trembler which vibrated > he solid earth last night at two minutes to In was most severe on record, being the first that has caus ed any fear on the part of the in J habitants oi town or creeks. A shorf time before the quake there was that oppressive stillness about everything that is commonly noted in connection with earth quakes the lower animals seeming ly feeling, the approaching convul sions Then, about three or four minutes before the shock chickens and other fowls set up a tremen dous clamor which continued until all was past. At the time of the shake the lirst act of the May Roberts show at the Auditorium had just been com Imled and the lights flashed on. As the building began to rock in an alarming manner the audience made a rush for exits. At the various hotels there was also much scurrying for the solid ground as the buildings began to sway, some of the guests appear ing on the street barefooted for the first time since children, while num bers of others were not overburd ened with clothing. The Tanana Club members and others on top floors speedily piled down stairs to the street, about the only gathering that was not disturbed being that of the Kagles. which were in session at tile time. The quake interrupted the reading that was under way at the time. I but the members simply balanced themselves until it was all over and | then went on with their business. On Kster creek the shock was par ticularly heavy, and most of the inhabitants took to the street. Fairbanks also reports a very heavy shake, dishes and stovepipes being shaken down at McKean's store while a man in a nearby bunk house was tumbled out of bed. Gil more experienced a good shock but strangely enough at Golden and far ther up the hill it was hardly felt. 1 he shock at (fines and Chatanika was the heaviest i ver felt. Al though apparently not as severe as on Fairbanks creek, due doubtless to a difference in formation which was not so well adapted to the transmission of the waves. EARTHQUAKE KILLS ONE. The only fatality resulting from the shuck-m fact the only death of tlie kind that is recorded in tliis camp took place on No. I above Home, where the tremor of the earthquake wave brought a slab of gravel down from the roof of John Heck's workings. Beneath the slab which came down simul taneously with the shock, was Louis Anderson, a miner of In years of age, who has been working for Heck since last spring. So large was the mass of gravel that it took the fellow workmen of Anderson's fully an hour to dig the remains out. N'o bones were found broken, death probably being due to the shock and weight rather than to the crushing of the skull, the breaking of the spinal column, or other injury of the usual sort. OTHER QUAKES FOLLOW. I lie first shock occurred at two minutes to ten, and was about one minute in duration. A few minutes later another tremor was felt by some, but this was very slight. Again yesterday morning at 10 minutes to S the earth quivered again, many persons awakening from their sleep as a consequence, to find lamps swaying. Between 12 and 1 o’clock yester day three light shocks occurred, and again last night at 10 minutes I>ast .1 still another one was dis tinctly felt. Apparently the earthquake had its origin at some line of fault not very far removed from Fairbanks, for the reports from the coast in- j dicate that it did not amount to j very much over there. while it could not have been severe farther south as hard shakes usually break the Alaskan cable, and that was j in working order yesterday. The waves seem to be traveling from west to east. Celebration Proves to Be a Great Success It was a great Fourth of July, all agree, the celebration starting with the Hannonie ball Wednesday night, and not concluding until about mid night on tlie fifth, while there was something doing most of the time. The celebration was handled by the Commercial Club this year, which thoroughly acquitted itself in the new role. In particular the pa rade and motor boat races were the features, never before brought into prominence, which deserve special mention. BIG TIME AT DANCE, The Harmonic society proved ' it self a good host at the big annual dance held Wednesday evening at the roller rink when almost 200 couples attended and danced the hours away until 4 a in. on the morning of the Fourth. There was plenty in the way of refreshment provided, while a five piece orchestra furnished the music. PARADE PLEASES MANY. The parade was more elaborate than ever before, the prizes offered, particularly for the chiildren. having attracted many. Of the floats made by the children, the first went to "The Foundation of Fairbanks' u miniature stamp mill attended by a number of youthful miners Home Itule or Bust" got second prize. "The Water Wagon" was third. Two little esquimos were awarded a prize as tlie most origi nal character. Two Witches were adjudged the most comical, and George Washington" was given a prize in the absence of Uncle Sam. Of the parade as a whole, the first prize went to the children's float. "The Foundation of Fair banks." "The Japanese Tea Gul den" came second "Big Chief Calla han'' ami his braves were third. Other prize winners were “Sailor Girls." "John, the Bear Hunter." "Young Alaskans." "Excursion Yacht." "Texas Hangers." Veterans of the Civil War." Barthel's Brew ery, The Alaska and Cascade Laun dries. The parade came to a close in front of tlie grand stand where Louis Stringer made a most stirring 4th of July oration, coupled with the reading of the Declaration of In dependence.

July 7.—Tin first big gun of the present pres idential campaign will he fired here Wednesday when Governor Wilson is to he officially notified of his nomination by the Democratic par ty. Such is the decision of Wood row Wilson and Senator Klect Ollie James, in conference here today. The speech of acceptance now be ing prepared will be a broadside lautn bed tit Theodore Roosevelt who Is already claiming that the plat form and policies of the Democratic party do not deal with the vital Issues now before the people. “The high cost of living is the only burning issue before the people today,” said Governor Wilson, in dicating the trend of his mind. "At its heart lies the high protection tariff.” "A great many of the trust pro blems of the time are the outgrowth of the tariff. Consequently if you take up tjie tariff you must take up the trust problems because these are so interlaced that they must be considered as one. This is what the Democratic party intends doing.” COLLIES TEACH MALEMUTES SEATTLE, July 7. — Included among the cargo of the steamer St. Helens now en route to the north is a complete church which is to replace the one which was lost a year ago when the schooner Ked fiehls was wrecked as she was transporting a similar cargo.

In addition the St. Helena car ried other unusual supplies, such as magazines for the Federal of ficers, teachers and Eskimos who are not in touch with any of the larger settlements. 1 he most unique thing, however, in the shipment was a half dozen collie dogs being sent north by the department of education with the idea of being used to teach mala mult's to herd reindeer BRITISH REPORT OR THE WRECK I.(>\ I)(IN, duly 7 a report on Hie Titanic wrieek, very much like that of the congressional commit ice. has been made by the Hrltlsh j Court of Inquiry. presided oveer by i l.onl Mersey.
