THURSDAY , APRIL 26 , 1906.
On an inside page will be found
an account of the San Francisco
and western coast earthquake ,
which will be found most complete ,
excepting minor details of the oc
casional shooting of theives , rob-
bers.and persous who refused to
obey orders of the police or sol
diers who were in charge under
orders to maintain order. Many
heart rending details of the dis
asters that would fill volumes and
yet not exceed the imagination of
the average reader under such cir
cumstances could be told , but suf
fice to say that contributions from
nearly every town and city in the
United States , Canada and other
countries in America have con
tributed a sufficient amount to al
leviate the suffering from hunger
and privations of those who were
not killed or injured and to re
imburse more than the needy and
worthy have lost. There will be
great sums expended to help re
cover fortunes that some have lost
and contributors \ \ ill never know
that the money they gave went to
rebuild fortunes , rather than to al
leviate hunger and privations as
anticipated in the giving. Enough
money has been contributed to re
build every home that was wreck
ed or burned , if distributed among
the homeless. Much money will
probably be expended to reimburse
losses that otherwise would fall on
insurance companies. A true and
correct accounting should be ex
pected and rendered of receipts
and disbursments. The changing
from the red cross to ex-mayor ,
James D. Phelan , as ordered by
Pres. Roosevelt to receive and dis
burse charity , was a blunder.
The total amount of charity will
"be very large and some capable
plan of distribution should be ar
El. L. Heath , former editor of
this paper , and one of the staunch
est populists in the northwest , has
announced that he will turn the
guns of his Cody Cow Boy on ev
erything * that is ferninst republi
canism after July 4th , and become
a partisan republican. It's the eas
iest thing thing in the world for
Heath to shed his political skin
and he might be a howling demo
crat two or three years hence.
The people * however , soon lose
faith in a man who can change his
politics to suit the party in power.
