NEW YORK, April n.-The Journal of

The head of large commlfsion houses
In the dry goods trade am talalng over
plana of announcing any reasonable ex

In spite of property lotrnrs Involved in
destruction of San Francisco hy earthquake
and tire, New Yorkera alio havS large in
terests at stoke ill that city and Califor
nium reaident here said without heskaLlon
yesterday that San Francisco wou.d ba re
built as upeedlly as possible, that the city
would rise from Its ailiea on grander lines
than those of ita past and that it would b
a safer and lieultliler city becaue of thfl
precautions to, l taken Against future
earthquakes and conflagrations.
U. O. Mills, said: "In aplte of the uncer
tainty, one thing la Hire the city will be
rebuilt. We will go ahead and build th
city, nrid build It ao that earthquakes will
nut shake It down and ao flro will not de
stroy If, Hnd we will have a water system
which will enable us to draw water from
the sea, for fire extinguishing service and
other municipal purposes. Wi will thus
have bus to fear from the destruction of
the land mains."
Archtr M. Huntington, son of Collls P.
Huntington, aald: "Snn Francisco Is the
logical metropolla west of the Rockies and
all talk of abandoning of the city In favor
of some auch place aa Seattle la foolishness.
1 can say that the city will be rebuilt at
that it will be an Improved city and
that In the building profit will be taken
from present conditions."
Predicts Better Buildings.
Isnao Guggenheim aald: "Of course San
Francisco will rise again. Wa have every
confidence lh Its recuperative powera. It
will rlsa like the Phoenix and be bigger and
more beautiful. Buildings will be put up
that will not tumble down when the earlh
qiiakea, and neither will they burn so eas
ily, and It will be one of the most beautiful
cities In the world."
O. E. Laldlaw said that commercial neces
sities would take care of Ban Francisco's
future, adding: "I see no reason why the
city should not rle naaln. The tendency
of course Is to rebuild."
"There can be no possible doubt that
Han Franelsci will rise from the ashes of
Ita rulna," declare ! Colonel Dudley Kvana,
president of the Wclls-Fargo Express com
pany. It Is question of only a few years
before tha city will be greater and grander
than ever before. It will have the ex
perience and the mistakes of the past ns a
guide, and even If there should be another
visitation of an earthquake there would be
little to fear with the provisions thnt will
be made to meet such a dancer.
Mar CaansT Sites.
"Soma plan must ba da vised which will
obviate tha necessity of building on the
made land of the wholesale district. It
virtually has no foundation to support the
great buildings which rested upon It and
It aeems to me likely that the merchants
will 'move to the solid ground formerly
known aa Tarflat, south Of Markat street."
That no time will ba lost In the work
of rebuilding San Francisco la suggested
by the fact that tha large engineering and
contracting firms are sending their most
expert men to Investigate tha ruins with
a view of discovering which form of con
struction best withstood the shock. The
city will require about NO,) tona of struc
tural steel to repair Ita losses and erect
new buildings, according to E. H. Clary,
head of the United States Steel corpora
tion, and other authorities Interviewed yes
terday. One result of the earthquake, It
was claimed, will be to give an Impetus to
the use of steel skeletons In future build
ing along the Pacific coast.
A special to the Times from Trenton, N.
J., says: The John A. Roehllng's Bona
company of this city, whose store and
warehouse were destroyed In San Fran
cisco, decided yesterday to rebuild at once.
