A $1,000,000 Fund to Assist the Upbuilding of Ruined San Francisco
San Frnnoisco lias gone and nothing remains hut charred and smouldering ruins and a determination
to rebuild it again to its proud position as the foremost commercial city on the right hand of the continent. .
We want your help; not alone your sympathy, but your dollars. 3G0,000 people are back of these words
They do not ask for charity. They only ask for temporary aid aid to rebuild their magnificent city.
A corporation has been formed to raise $1,001,000 to house temporarily the stricken laborers and
their families, the men behind the shovels and the spades, the teams and the cars, the decks and the docks
men who are slaving with might and brain to raise this city, Phoenix like, from her ashes, to take again its
fifth place among the great cities of our nation.
The duty of this timely company is as broad as it is good. It will first give attention .to housing the
laborers in temporary canvas homes and give them employment at clearing away the vast wreckage of tho
miles and miles of ruins, a task that will call for months of laborious slaving.
Already tracts are being leased upon which to spread the tents and erect cheaper wooden structures
that the great work may go forward.
These living places will be rented to the thousands of applicants for them, while the occupants can
Be employed at tho great work ppread in the charred ruins before them.
You can help with your big honest dollars. Individually you can do little, but collectively this vast
Bum gathered from all parts of .this nation and put into this ohannel can do great good.
The people of ruined San Francisco do not ask for charity. What they want is your help-your
help to help themselves.
Three hundred millions of dollars in property and priceless treasures are gone into this seething
funeral pyre, but the dogged American determination remains to rebuild this great city.
System is needed, backed up by dollars. Employment is waitingthe willing men. The able sum
raised through this popular subscription will be truly a Godsend to this stricken city.
To put the matter on a business basis, this corporation has divided the stock into 100,000 shares of
$10 each, payable in cash, to be put to work at once under the direction and supervision of able men.
Money is money in San Francisco at this time. This corporation at this time has' a great work
Look at it in every way; help those who need help; charity will not be accepted. What the people of
San Francisco want is temporary homes and work-canvas and temporary wooden houses with employment
at their trades.
Your can help. Put your dollars at work and lot those dollars return to you later, bringing a silent
tribute of appreciation and splendid interest.
You can help in no greater way than this. San Francisco will be rebuilt. It will again assume it
proud and powerful position, keeping watch1 over the commerce that will glide in and out through tho
Golden Gato and over the powerful railways of the continent.
Let the people of the nation see how quickly it can rebuild this great city. Let personal pride dom
inate. Let every citizen take an interest in raising tis city from its blackened grave of dead walls.
No grander or nobler duty ever called for your money. Competent artisans, bankers and men of
ability will see to their proper use. Do something to merit the plaudits of the 360,000 homeless people of
this stricken city.
Your interest in this great work will show by your shares in the Earthquake Construction Company,
a corporation that has assumed a Herculean task, but a task thnt it must be up and about at once.
We have no time for idle correspondence send for all the shares you can at $10 each.
Able men are at work while you are reading this preparing the plans for going ahead at the mighty
task. You have read the newspapers and know the great need for speedy action. Fit your actions to that
need share your plenty with those who need it now, but who will not accept it as charity.
Help Build Temporary Homes. Help Clear Away the Debris. Help to Rear Again the Mighty
Buildings that were once the pride of the western coast, but that now lie in their own ashes.
An acknowledgment will be made of your subscription to this needed investment and reports month
by month of the use it has been put to.
Subscribe for every share you can afford seud the cash. It is believed that the amount asked for
will be fully subscribed by the generous people of the United States people who never swerve from the lino
of duty when the call for help comes. ,
Share your plenty with those who yesterday fared well, but today are in the direst need.
This company is being organized under the laws of California, with a capital stock of 100,000 shares
of the par value of $10.00 each, every share of which will be placed in the treasury to be sold at par $10.00
a share the proceeds to be applied to the work for which the company is organized. There will bo no
"rake-offs" no "graft" no promotion stock no commission or brokerage of any kind paid anyone.
Only the legitimate expenses incurred will be charged. Books, records and files of the company and ac
counts showing every item of receipts and disbursements will at all times, during business hours, be open
to inspection, not only to the stockholders, but to tne public in general.
We desire to emphasize the fact that this is not a charitable enterprise, but is a straight business
proposition, and is expected to realize a liberal profit to all stockholders, besides conferring an inestimable
benefit upon the sufferers of the stricken city.

CATTLE There was the usual dearth of
cattle on the market tnls morning, there
nut being enougn ot anything in sight to
make a test ot values. As will be noted
from the table of receipts at the bead ot
this column, arrivals tms week uave been
lighter than usual. The fact Is this week's
run is the smallest of any week since the
first of the year. A conquerable proportion
of the arrivals has consisted ot corn-fed
In one regard at least the market has
been Just the reverse of what It was last
week, when It will be remembered that the
market opened In good shape and steadily
declined, the loss amounting to lw02oc. The
present week opened no better, but after
Mondu values were stronger every day, so
that at the close of the week It Is safe to
rail beef steers loft loo higher than the doss
of last week. Activity has not been a
feature of the trade, buyers being a little
backward about putting on and not appear
ing to relish the Idea of higher prloes. Still
the trading has been in fair shape and a
good clearance has been maae every day.
Cows and heifers have followed along
after the steer market and have shown
about the same advance. The receipts of
cows have been light all the week, with no
treat number of really good fat stuff com
The mocker and feeder trade so far as
the better grades are concerned has beet)
in a good, healthy condition all the week,
that Is, suppiy ana demand have been about
equal. Under such conditions the trade on
mom days has been active and the cattle
emu at about steaay prices an tne ween.
At the close the yards are practically clear,
there being no surplus on hand
HOGS Liberal receipts and tha fact that
It was ths last day of the week, and other
selling points were not sending especially
encouraging news. oomDinea to make the
hog market at this point rather unsatlsfau
tory to sellers. A few loads sold early to
speculators and shippers at a Uitle stronger
firlces than yesterday, the first sales being
argely at !.&. Packers were not dtapoaed
to admit of any advance In the market and
were bears right from the start. As sellers
all felt that the market should be a Hale
stronger, ths trade was practically at a
standstill all the morning and It was late
In the forenoon before buyers and sellers
got together on a buine bat. Jt being
a Saturday, buyers had the best of It, as
no one cared to hold nogs over until Mon
day, and In the end sellers were forced to
let go at prices only a shade better than
yesterday. The big bulk of all the hogs sold
As receipts of hogs this week have been
the largest of any weea tms montn and de
rldedly larger than a year a-o, as will he
n.iicd by the figures at the head of this
column, the week started out with a good
stiff decline and continued Its downward
course during the first three days. On
Thursday and Friday there was a slight re
action, so that at the close of the wek tne
market Is only about K lower than one
week ago. Considering the very large re.
celpts, the market as a whole has been In
very satisfactory condition, the demand
being good every day and ths trad reason
ably active as a rule.

BHiih.f-Th.ru were no fresh receipts
hare this morning and nothing to make a
market. It was in fact a noiiday so far
as the sheep barn was concerned.
Receipts this week nave been very light,
the total being the smallest of any
since the tirst of February. There has
been a falling off of over one-na.i as com
pared with last week and of 2,ux as com
pared with the corresponding week a
year ago. ins neavy aecrease ui itcmin.
almply bears out the statement made at
the 01080 of last week to the effect that
the feed vards to the west or US were
pretty well depleted and that the season
tor fed sheep and lambs at this point Is
rapidly drawing to a close.
wnne receipts tor tne weea uave ueeu
very light, as noted above, tne aciuai
number of sheep on sale has been much
smaller, as a considerable proportion of
tha arrivals on some days has consisted
of stuff billed through to eastsrn shear
ing pens and not orterea tor saie ai mis
point. At the same time the offerings
have been moderate and ths demand has
been quit good, so that the market all
week has been In a good healthy condi
tion. As a rule the trade has been active,
whlls prices have steadily tended upward.
Unfortunately no choice wooled lambs
have been offered within the last few
days, but there was no question but what
anything of that description would have
sold quickly at 17.00 aud possibly at $7.iOi0
7.16. Ths lamb market for the week may
salely be quoted lu'u2jc higher.
Sheep have been la l.ght supply all the
week, there not being enough on sal lo
really make a test of the market, but
tbey are at least strong to loo higher
than a week ago.
iLveryttilng points toward a continuation
ot light receipts, barring, as a matter of
oojrse, aocaalonal heavy runs and
those who make It a business to keep
posted on the situation are predicting
strong prices for everything In th way
of desirable killers.

NEW YORK, April 28. Heavy liquidation
continued in the stock market today with
out any new development in the situation.
The violent decline In prices of the last
two days brought additions to the flood
on the market by ths wiping out of mar
gins, uncovering of stop-loss orders,
shrinkage of oo lateral and all the other
natural consequences of a sudden contrac
tion In the market valuation of securities.
The bears were in their element, and, of
course, were not Idle.
A remarkable feature of the market mam
the calmness In the early part of the ses-'
lon, wnen seuing was comnamttvi.lv k-hi
nd supporting measures seemed to be
ftuslly effective. Such a drop in prices as
mat or yesterday usually has the result
of precipitating additional burdens on the
market immediately following, owing to
Impaired margins which have not been
made good over night and the natural un
settling effect upon sentiment of a day of
demoralisation such as yesterday. Sales of
this character seemed to be withheld from
the market when trading first began. Ths
fact that loans made on Friday at the
stock exchange carry over until Monday
may have exempted Speculative holders
from some Immediate pressure to closs.
But before the eeselon was over stocks
poured out from every direction and were
thrown over on a swiftly declining range
of prices, sales either being forced or the
sellers determined to get out. at the pre
