Loss of Life Are Greatly F.maa-
Itle Last Heavily.
T. W. Blackburn, the attorney, returned
yesterday afternoon from the raclflo
roast. He left Los Angeles Tuesday even
ing via the coast line en rout to San
Francisco, expecting to pnd Wednes
day In th metropolis. His train was a
trifle late and had Just passed through
the series of tunnels below Sallna and
had arived at that station at 1:13 a. m.,
th moment the earthauake shock oc
curred. Mr. Blackburn slept through tlie dis
turbance, however, and had ho knowledge
of th fact until about breakfast time.
Th train crept slowly northward to
Pajaro, the Junction station for Watson
Vllle. Paspengera noticed that all the
chimney of the ranch houee on either
side th railroad 'had toppled over, but
had no Idea that any particular destruc
tion of property beyond this had resulted
from the shakeup. '
"At Pajaro the railway people Informed
passengers that ten freight car were In
the ditch a few mile out and five hour'
delay would b experienced," said Mr.
Blackburn. "Many went over to Watson,
vllle, a city of 6.000 or more, among them
myself. The brick buildings showed con
siderable damage and the wagon bridge
acros the Pajaro river had been shaken
out of plumb. The approachea wer
sunken and otherwise disturbed. Great
cracks In the surface of the ground made
the bridge Impassable for teams. No live
were lost and no serious injury waa sus
tained to the residents, though It will take
many thousand dollars to repair the dam
age to property.
Train Detataed Thirty Hoar.
"Our train was detained thirty hours,
and then by transferring afoot over a
high railroad bridge on Wednesday aft
ernoon the belated Los Angeles passen
gers got first to Gllroy, then to San Jose,
and a few of ua were able to get standing
room In train running to Nlles, Tracy,
Oakland and Stockton. At Tracy I boarded
the Overland No. 6, two hour late, and
came on without material Inconvenience
or delay home.
"At th railroad bridge there were evi
dences ot the earthquake; twisted rails,
sunken piers and shifting hillsides. Hill
two hundred feet In elevation showed
cracks from' foot to summit i and great
areas of the surface moved down to cover
railway and wagon roads. At Gllroy
every brick building was wrecked more or
less nnd many frame buildings were dam
aged. A sohool house was practically
ruined. Plat glass and large window
panes were generally dcstroed and brick
chimneys were toppled over In every part
of the country from Salinas to eacramentn.
"Ban Jose, a beautiful city of 30.000 peo
ple, waa sadly demoralised. People had
slept In the open air Wednesday night.
Business was practically suspended. Th
state militia wis camped in the park and
the handsome buildings, public and private,
where of stone dr brick, without exception
were badly damaged. Fifty lives were lost,
particularly In the large brick hotels.
which caved In or collapsed. The people
wen not yet recovered from their fright
and were fr tn0 most part outside their
homes and place of business, still afraid
to -esuma occupation of h6ushold Voca
tions. ...' 5 " :
Peopl Look for Friends.
"On the trains leading towards Oakland
for' none were permitted to enter San Fran
ciscohundreds of anxious people hastened
to pee what could be learned ot friends
and on those coming away from the
stricken city thousands crowded every Inch
of space, fleeing from ruin, want, fire and
"Those of us' who had been delayed at
Pajaro learned little of the actual truth
until we reached San Jose.- The wires were
down and only the wildest rumors reached
us In our Isolated valley station. The
worst came with the extra newspapers
when we reached the little city. At Tracy,
where I waited for my train until 10 p. m
Thursday night, although seventy-five
miles from San Francisco, the red sky
showed the fire on Nob Hill and close to
the horlion the furnace of flame was die
"The train brought scorea and hundreds
ot tourists hastening home, fleeing from
the horrors ot Wednesday and Thursday.
Women, children and men from the hotels
of San Francisco, with nothing left of
their possessions excepting what clothing
and valuablea they carried on their persons
from their desperately dangerous lodging
places, filled two sections of the train.
One little lady In my cur, with a child, of
6 years, escaped from the Occidental hotel
In her night dress with bedroom slippers
and such garments for herself and child
aa she could grab In her Imste to reach
safety. The plastering of her sleeping
room Ml upon her bed and cut a guah In
her forehead. . All day Wednesday she and
her child sought safety. All night Wednes
day night she and her little one were out
of house and home. Finally, by making
a long detour, she succeeded In crossing
th bay to Alameda and by almost super
human exertion Anally got a berth in the
Bleeping car and came on homo a nervoua
wreck from the awful experience of two
days and a night. Her case is one of
thousands, for the city waa full of eastern
people making their last visits In San Fran
cisco before Journeying homeward. -
An elderly clergyman, shaken by the
earthquake out of hla bedroom In the St.
Francis, returned later assured that the
splendid new hotel was safe from fire, only
to b roused at 11 p. m. with the startling
intelligence that the beautiful steel and
brick structure waa doomed. He then went
to high ground and took a room in fancied
safety, when at i . m. the alarm of fire
was again raised and he saw his aecond
lodging place destroyed.- To a third hotel
still farther from the seething flames he
made hla way and In two hours the troop
ordered residents and visitors to move hack
toward the faraway Presidio, and thia third
hotel was licked up by the Insatlat demon
of flame. By and by tho aged clergyman
got to Berkeley by ferry and caught th
train for his eastern domicile.
Ha Kaa at Incidents.
"I could fill your newspaper with Inci
dent related to my fellnw-passengar who
passed through the earthquake and fir.
Th stories as given out by the press, so
far aa San Francisco la concerned, ar not
tmi;!i exaggerated. Indeed, exaggeration
would add nothing to the terrlbl truth.
The smaller cities suffered much loss r.f
property from Salinas to Santa Rosa,
though aa far aa known when I ram away
there wer comparatively few live sacri
ficed, excepting at San Jose, Agnews and
Santa Rosa. Th greater calamity at tho
metropolis overshadows th Incident ot
the smaller towns, though tb loss of
life and property at San Jos alone ex
reeds that at Charleston, 8. C.
"The Indomitable courage of the stricken
people anJ their marvelous fortitude ax
cite th admiration of all. Ban Francisco
depolated waa not a city of walling and
weeping. Out at Golden Gat park and all
over tb hills toe1 peopl looked upon the
; 'awful speviacl with .dry eyes and the
common people, as well as the leading
business men. who knew that their po
sepplonp. small or great, were either gone
or In Immediate danger, had the courage
to say to each other and the guest of the
terrible day and night that In five years
San Francleco should be greater and mora
beautiful than rer.
"At San Jose two real estate firms tacked
to their shattered plate glass windows
above the dehrl of ruined offices, "We Will
buy any property offered t less thsn
former prices." At Watsonvllle I person
ally saw the president and cashier o the
Pajaro Valley bank opon th doors of that
broken building promptly at 10 a. m. Wed
nenday, though at the time workmen were
bracing the cracked structure to prevent-
coping and ornamental cnrnlc work rem
tumbling Into the street and this In face of
the prediction thst two more shocks could
be expected during the day, both of which
Oakland Goes to Work.
"The cltixens of Oakland. With every brick
building more or less damaged, but with
small loss of life, turned immediately from
their own troubles to organise relief for
the hurrying thousands crowding Into the
once beautiful residence city of San Fran
cisco bay. Words fall nle to express my
admiration for th splendid work of public
officials, the military and naval authori
ties and the Individual cltisenshlp of this
empire slate. Loa Angeles, 600 miles away,
untouched by th earthquake, within six
hours had relief work In progress and a
delegation n route to Ban Francisco au
thorised to tender and render all assistance
possible In a situation of which no definite
Information could be obtained. All of this
California spirit waa buttressed and rein
forced by the prompt response of President
Roosevelt, congress and the country at
large. It ia a tremendous price to pay,
but barring the loss of Ufa and th misery
which th catastrophe entails upon human
beings. It I worth th money to see and
know that America, Americans and Cali
fornia Americans ar built of tha stuff that
wins in spite of cataclysms, and unite as
on family not only In a common mourning
for thoe whose lives ar taken, but Join
hands as brethren in rehabilitating and
renewing the lafld visited by desolation."
Good Jews for Omahans.
Mr. Blackburn brought the first word that
has come of County Clerk D. M. Haverly.
He saw him at Watsonvllle through a car
window thouab he Aid not get to speak to
him. Mr. Haverly looked well, he said.
Mrs. Fred Metx and daughter he saw at
Loa Angeles. They told him they were
going to Ban Francisco and would stop at
the Hamilton hotel,- but expected to come
home aoon by way of Portland. The Hamil
ton waa destroyed, but Mr. Blackburn
thinks perhaps the Omaha women had left
Ban Francisco In time to escape the wreck.
Mr. Blackburn also thinks Miss Clara
Thomas did not reach SarT Francisco before
th earthquake. Bh was to have left Santa
Barbara the night before. Ho was on the
train she waa to have taken and as the
train was delayed In one place thirty hours
he had opportunity of seeing everybody on
It. He did not see Miss Thomas.

that not less than 5,000 people were killed.

E. E. Benger ct San Francisco was an

his clothes. He borrowed money to get to
New Tork, where, he has relatives. Mr.
Benger waa on the seventh floor of the

SAN FRANCISCO. April 22.-Th Asso
ciated Press is requested to transmit the
War Department Headquarters, Pnciflc
Division, San Francisco. April 22. Several
telegrams have been received at thea
headquarters as to th epidemic of con
tagious disease In Baa Francisco. There-
is absolutely no truth in any of these state
ments. There is no' epidemic of any kind
and no preaent prospect of any. Such state
ments are simply doing harm to San Fran
cisco and Injuring the country In general.
It would be deemed a great service to the
suffering people of San Franclxco and all
their frlenda if it could be published
throughout the country that the. condi
