SANTA ROSA, Cal.. April .The Hot of
known dead now totals fifty-eight and It Is
believed that 100 Is a conservative estimate
of the number of people who lost their lives
In the awful catastrophe which visited this
city on Wednesday morning. Five bodies
were recovered today from the wreckage
and the search has linrdly begun.
The entire business fiction Is In ruins
and practically every residence In town Is
more or less damaged, fifteen or twenty
being badly wrecked. The damage to resi
dences was caused principally by the sink
ing of the foundations, which let many
structures down on to the ground. The
brick and stone business blocks, together
with the publlo buildings, were all thrown
flat. The court bouse, hall of records, the
Occidental and Bants. Rosa hotels, the
Athenaeum theater, the new Masonic tem
ple. Odd Fellows' block, all the banks
everything went, and In all the city not
one brick and stone building Is standing,
except the California Northwestern depot.
It Is almost Imposible for an outsider to
realise the situation as it actually exists
here. No such complete destruction of a
city's business Interest ever before resulted
from an earthquake In America. The very
completeness of the devastation is really
the redeeming feature, though, for It puts
all upon the exactly same basis commer
cially speaking. Bankers and millionaires
'are going about with only the few dollars
they happened to have In their pockets
when the craus came and are little better
off than the laborer who is digging through
the debris. Money has practically no value
here now, ,for there Is no place to spend
It and Uils phase of the situation presents
Its own remedy.
Food "apply Is Ample.
Almost everyone here Is sleeping out
doors, being afraid to enter their homes
except for a short while at a time until
repairs have been made. There are plenty
of provisions. Borne have been supplied
by other towns and much has been brought
lo from the surrounding country. Two en
tire blocks of buildings also escaped being
swept by the flames which immediately
broke out In a dozen places at once, or
as soon aa the shock was over, and from
the tangled ruins of these buildings com'
pleta stocks of groceries, clothing, etc., are
being dug out and added to the common
store. Then before the Are gained head
way, several grocery stores were emptied
of their contents In anticipation of what
might follow. The city Is under full mar
tial law, Company t' of Petaluma having
been called to assist the local company in
preserving order. Many deputy sheriffs and
special police have also been sworn in, but
no trouble yet has occurred and none Is
expected. The relief committee Is active
and well managed and all in need of as-
Hl.1t.1nrv arc supplied. The work now re
quiring the principal attention of the au
thorities Is the removal of the wreckage
to search for the bodies of those missing
and known to have perished. Forty ma
lines, under command of Captain Holcombe,
arrived today from Mare Island and did
splendidly, working In the search. Forty
two bodies were buried today.

Loss of Hundreds of
BAN FRANCISCO. April 21. Among the
homeless hundreds now being sheltered at
Jefferson square conditions are as admirable
as they could be undrr the awful circum
stances. The relief committee has supplied
every sufferer with food, blankets have
been supplied and many tents are In place.
An effort probably will be mado by the
military and civil authorities to secure
some kind of an accurate list of the dead
in the neighborhood. So far they have been
greatly handicapped through their Inability
to get rcllablo people to engage In the
Among the homeless In the square arc
many little ones. Last night there was a
shortage In the milk supply, but this condi
tion waa relieved at an early hour this
morning by the arrival of many cans of
the precious fluid.
Early this morning there was great ex
citement among the refugees over the re
ported shooting of a looter in the square.
Certainly a shot was fired, but by whom
and at what point neither military nor civil
authorities doing police duty in the neigh
borhood .have been able to ascertain. It
Is known, however, that no one was shot
by either soldiers" or police at Jefferson
square during the night.
The sanitary condition of the camp In
the square is a matter that must be given
immediate attention it the health of the
homeless Is to be preserved. This matter
is In the hands of the engineer corps of
tho army and no time will be lost In look
ing to the sanitation of the wholo city,
but meanwhile there is great fear that
sickness will wipe out tho. lives of many
unfortunates who have been saved from
earthquake and fire.
There was soino relief of the crowded
condition of the camp in the square before
noon today, when a little army of refugees,
carrying all they had In the world upon
their backs, made their way through the
debris and wreckage to the ferry building.
Here those who were out of funds were
given transportation across the bay.
In Golden bate Park.
At Golden Gate park, where there are
camped probably too greatest number of
refugees, conditions today are improved.
No estimate of the number of people In
the park can be made at this time, but
some sort of a canvass Is being made by
the military authorities to ascertain the
approximate number of people, as well as
to relieve all the individual cases of suffer
ing and to Improve the sanitary conditions,
The food situation Is not serious. There
was plenty of food of the simplest sort
of course, provided for everyone in the
Major F. IL Keesllng of the First bat
talion of the coast artillery, N. G. C, is
In command of the military relief measures
in the park. His headquarters Jlave been
established at the tennis courts. Here sup
plies of sugar, coffee, bread and canned
goods are being distributed and at another
point some prepared meats were given
Army tents, as many as It is possible
to obtain, will be set up everywhere and
other canvas protections were made of
blankets, rugs, carpets, bedclothlng and
every other sort of material that could
be used for the purpose. In some places
refugees had cleared out spaces beneath
the thick shrubbery and the seml-troplc
plants for which Golden Gate park Is
famous and under these found some sort
of natural protection from the chill night
As yet there has been very little sick
ness aside from nervous shock and physl
cal exhaustion, and from these most of the
people have had time to recover. The ef
forts of the military authorities today aro
all In the direction of Improving the sanl
tary condition and providing safeguards
against any possible epidemic that may. re
suit from the exposed situation of so many
people. All refuse and debris of every
sort must be deposited In trenches
dug for that purpose and the park has
been divided into various sanitary districts
over which military officers have been given
command and which are patrolled by reg
ular soldiers or municipal police.
Sanitary Conditions Poor.
A visit along the north beach of Ban
Francisco, including the Presidio reserva
tlon, revealed conditions which may de
velop into a serious menace to the health
of the city. People who have been per
mltted by good fortune to remain within
their homes have violated ordinary health
precautions, having been deprived of water
for flushing purposes.
In the Presidio the military authorities
are using every endeavor to create health
ful conditions. Large corps of men are be
lng detailed to provide sewage systems,
and disinfectants are being freely dls
tributed to prevent the threatened epidemic
At the general hospital at the Presidio
TOO patients are being cared for In the
wards. Many of these patients were re
moved to the general hospltnl from public
and private hospitals In various parts of
the rlty. Several hundred persons were at.
tended yesterday and today for contusions,
abrasions, burns and minor Injuries.
At the general hospital In the Presidio
seven deaths have occurred.
At the children's hospital on California
street a large number of Injured and sick
persons have been treated. But one death
has occurred at this hospital.
Several smaller hospitals In the Western
addition are caring for large numbers of
Thirty Thousand tn the Prealdlo.
In the Presidio over 30,nno people are be
ing sheltered In 4.000 tents. A constant
stream of wagons and pedestrians Is en
tering and leaving the reservation. Ve
hicles of every description are being utilized
t carry household effects and provisions,
and, altogether, generally satisfactory con
ditions prevail. Tho rommissary depart
ment is raring for the people In the reser
vations and persons who reside close by.
Provisions are bring distributed with lib
eral hand, flour, b"ans. canned goods, eggs
and milk being given out in -ample quanti
ties. The milk and eggs are being served
only to mothers and Infants and to fam
ilies In which there are young children.
Three cargoes 'of supplies are now at the
Presidio dock and the goods already In
the warehouse will last for a week or ten
days at the present rate of distribution.
Large quantities of' goods are now en
route from coast points and from the east.
In Western uddltlon. west of Van Ness
avenue, every precaution Is being adopted
to supply the Immediate needs of the peo
ple. Water wagons go through the streets
twice dally, serving water to those who
have been cut off from running water.
Milk wagons are peddling milk at S and 10
rents a quart and meat is being distributed

countered In disposing of refuse and In
some sections a disagreeable odor Is very
apparent. Borne people are burning their
refuse In lots, but the vast majority have
no means of getting rid of this source of
Tea Thousand at Fort Mason.
Tho largest open camp In the city lies
opposite Fort Mason. It extends from
Larkln street to the Presidio and from
Filbert street to the water's edge. It was
estimated today by the military authorities
that this section contained upwards of
10.000 people, all of whom are sleeping and
living In tents or similar shelters.
These are for the most part among the
poorest of the city. Nearly half of thin
are Italians. It Is stated that no deaths
have occurred there during the last twenty
four hours, and that the sickness Is con
fined principally to babies and old people.
The entire vast area Is exposed directly to
a fresh brerie from the ocean and physi

IalR.SF. FOR Finn LOSS OILY

OAKLAND, April 21. An important
meeting of San Francisco fire underwriters
was held here today. The sense of the
meeting was that the .Impression should
not be given out that the Insurance com
panies had money to throw away or that
any losses would be paid until they had
been adjusted properly. It was made plain
that only such losses aa the companies
are responsible for would be paid.
This matter was brought to the atten
tion of tha board by Rolla V. Watt, mana
ger of the Royal and Queen companies.
He said: "I met ex-Mayor Phelan on the
street yesterday and he asked ma to get
Psome sort of a notice givaa out to the pub-
lie that their losses would be paid. I do
not balleva that this U Lta proper tting
and I told him ho. The companies I re
present will pay what they are liable for
and no more and It Is better for those
whose spirits aro drooping to allow them
to droop than to buoy them up with false
hopes." This sentiment wag generally
From the remarks made today there la no
doubt the companies will draw a fine dis
tinction between the loss by fire and that
by earthquake and will pay only for what
was actually burned.
The question of property devastated by
dynamite was not touched upon and will
probably be the cause of endless litigation.
A meeting of the members of the flan
Francisco clearing house was held here
today to discuss the financial situation, to
consider the future of the banks and to
prepare some plan to be submitted to the
state clearing association, which will meet
here next Tuesday afternoon. The state
bank commissioners have reported all tho
banks in splendid condition, but It Is be
lieved conditions demand some unusual
steps be taken to prevent any distressing
Tho advisability of having the govern
ment pay out money from the Kan Fran
cisco mint on telegraphic orders was considered.
The idea of the members was that It
might be best to order a general suspen
sion Of banking business In the state until
a safe adjustment of monetary matters has
thorltles for relief among the suffering.
