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
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
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
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
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.
