Flattery for San Francisco could not be
laid on too thickly by the visitor: and
this, while It may have seemed curious to
outsiders, was really a great thing for San
Francisco, and It largely accounted for the
making of the splendid city. Every San
Franciscan was always, at home and
abroad and above everything else, a
booster and plugger for his city.
The San Franciscans have always re
ferred to everybody living on this side of
the Sierras as snow shovellers and ice
diggers, and they have great fun out of
these phrases. They mean by these terms
that the folks living on this side of the
coast range of mountains have to contend
with hard, bitter and wholly Impossible
winters, while they, the San Franciscans,
got about the same quality of climate the
year around, except for the rains.

As a matter of fact, he could fight pretty
well, but his abilities were chiefly along

CAUSE OF THE EARTHQUAKE
President Jordan Says a Monntaln
Ridge Slipped Six Feet and
A clear and authoritative statement of
the case of the recent earthquake la given
by President Jordan of Iceland Stan
ford, Jr., university, In the latest Issue
of the New York Independent. Briefly,
his explanation is that the disturbance was
caused by the slipping northward of the
mountain ridge that forms the backbone
of the peninsula on which Kan Francisco
stands. The slipping was along the lino
of an old crevice, technically known as a
fault." Vesuvius is not mentioned as
having any connection with the quake.
President Jordan says:
"The backbone of the peninsula of San
Francisco is formed by a softly rounded
mountain chain, locally known as Sierra
Morena. or Sierra Santa Crux. This rises
to tbe height of about 3,600 feet in thj
ptak called loma Prieta, growing gradu
ally lower to the northward, where It
pvsses into the sea. Along the eaat base
of this mountain for forty miles or more
extends a sharply defined narraw valley,
known In different places aa Steven's creek,
Portola valley, Canada del Raymundo.
Spring valley, San Andreas, and extends
northward to Mussel-shell Rock across the
Oolden Gate to Bollnaa bay and Tomalea
bay. This marks an old fault of geologic
times. Whire it was made, the rocks on
the east side fel some 2,000 feet as related
to those on the west, which constitute the
"Most of the earthquake shocks about
San Francisco have been due to frictions
and readjustments along the line of this
old fault. The very violent shock of April
IS was clearly due to this. The old fault
In the rock reopened, breaking the surface
soil more or less for a distance of upward
of forty miles. The mountain on the west
side of the fault slipped to the northward
for a flistanee of between three and six
feet without change of level on elfher
side. The strain on the mountain, what
ever it was, became relieved, and after
various petty tremors of readjustment
the earthquake was over.
"From the first grinding movement
along the line of the fault, waves of In
tense violence were propagated along the
earth. The motion was horizontal, at flrst
buck and forth, and then as waves from
more distant points came In, they
coalesced into most extraordinary twists.
"The result was the snapping off of
chimneys and spires as though from tho

bartender was lolling hack, with his elbows

Interested, while Old Hoss unwrapped
curious little gray rocks from tissue paper
coverings and thumped them down on the
bar. These, Old Hoss explained, were
specimens from the greatest silver claim
H the universe.
Outside the snow peaks glittered In the
brief summer sunshine of the Divide. The
bartender's eye swept the laxy street out
side, but found nothing to charm away his
wandering attention from the tale of Old
Hoss. who rambled on, telling of horn sil
ver that you could pick tip out of the vein
with a knife end leads that assayed a

It was a relief, then, when a stranger
pushed through the swinging doors. T)ie
bartender, accustomed to estimate his
patrons at the outset with a view to possi
ble future trouble, saw that he wasn"t a
mining man In active service because he
wore a white collar, and that he wasn't a
tenderfoot because he did not look like
one. He was passing young and seemed
lo be struggling to be calm.

"Rye and a cider chaser," said the stran
ger. Then he leaned on the bar and fixed
Old Hoss with a gray-blue eye.
"Business." said he, "Important and press

business that ever engaged the attention of

He unbuttoned his coat. Swinging In

"See?" said Johnnie Duff, as he toyed
with his glass.
Old Hoss whistled.
"Jest goln' to wade in gore, ain't you?"
said he. "Goln" to leave bloody tracks all
over the face of our fair little city? Goin'
to mark your trail down our greatest busi
ness street by widows and orphans? I
hope and trust that I ain't Included in the
grand municipal funeral?"
"You're In It," said Johnnie Duff, "In
an advisory capacity. I'm here to wipe out
the Gold Plume Times-Dispatch. Wipe it
out and to hell with the consequences. And
I want out of you the plans and specifica
tions of the new grammar butcher that's
editing lt-that J. Matthews."
"Down your drink, man; down your
drink," said Old Hoss In a voice that was
choked with some strong emotion.
Johnny Duff drank. As he drank he
raised his eyes to the celling and so he did
not see a qu(ck signal which passed be
tween Old Hoss and the bartender. When
he set the glass down they were both
as serious as owls. Old Hone spoke.
mm rigni, jonnnie. Ten your
troubles. It'll do you good to get it off
your mind before you go up against J
Matthews. Make a nice obituary Item for
your old sheet down at Oro; for. Just as a
friend, I'm warning you that you ain't the
first man who got his medicine from J
Matthews In a short week's In-cum-ben-cy
of the Gold Plume Times-Dispatch."
"For the matter of that," responded
Johnny Duff, "I ain't betting whether the
funeral will be In Gold Plume or Oro. Go
ing to be a funeral, though. Matter of
honor. Old Hoss, honor! What's an editor
got but his honor?''
There was a tear In his eye. and the bar
tender, out of the fullness of experience,
made a note that this wasn't his first rye
and cider chaser of the day. nor yet the
second, therefore the bartender shifted
his gun to a place under the beer cooler
ao as to be on the safe, side.
The Fonl Aecnaatton.
Johnny Duff pulled a newspaper clipping
from his wUstcoat pocket and shoved It
along the bar. '
"Ain't there shooting In that?" he asked.
"I want to know, ain't there shooting in
that? I slam Gold Plume regular In the
editorial columns, as is proper and a part
of tho game. Old Charlie Hart, when he's
here, running the Times-Dispatch, does the
same to Oro, and It's all right. Then Old
Hart goes down to the democratic conven
tion In Denver and says on the front page
that he leaves the business in the hands of
J. Matthews. I print my regular weekly
roast on Gold Plume, as Is right, ain't i: ?
And here's what J. Matthews does! Read
It! Get it into your head and ak yourself
U they ain't shooting in it."
Johnnie Duff leaned moodily on the bar,
and Old Hoss rend the clipping' thus:
"The youth and inexperience of the per-
son who attempts to edit the Weekly Mer
cury of Oro should be the only excuse for
the ridiculous misrepresentation of plain
facta which appeared In last week's issue
of his semi-occasional sheet. An excerpt of
tne article appears below, more for the
amusement of our readers than for the ad
vertisement of a newspaper so plainly lack
ing la the first qualifications of Journalistic
dignity. Great newspapers make great
communities. How can Oro expect to at
tain that place beside Gold Plume which
its citizens fondly dream of In their most
optimistic moments while it is handicapped
by a person ao plainly amateurish In his
methods as the callow editor of the Mer
cury." "Well." said Old Hoss, looking owr the
clipping Into Johnnie's face, "you are mid
dling young, Johnnie Duff."
"Young!" exploded Johnnie Duff. "Young!
Is it any business of that tenderfoot who
broke into the business last week? It It

Redeye and Tears.
The maudlin streak surged uppermost
in the mind of Johnnie Duff, and the tear

"It surely don't look reasonable, but theae

went on Old Hoss. "which I wsrn you will

"Durn kind of you." said Johnnie. "Act

his funeral or mine."
The bartender looked at Old Hoss. and
Old Hoss looked at the bartender. Johnnie,
still leaning on the bar. didn't see that the
former raised his eyebrows In a swift ques
tion and the latter nodded. Old Hoss
"You talk like a man. Johnnie Duff. I
kind o' like It In you. Tell you what I'll
do. Seeln's you've come over here sll
alone, and orphaned and unprotected, to
shoot the Innards out of Gold Plume, I'm
goln' along, and to blaies with everything!
I'm feelln' kind o' reckless myself since

"Fair and square." said Johnnie Duff.
"Going to tell him what I think of him.
Do ine good to know he heard Just what
he was before he passed In. Say, have an
other. You're a good friend o, me or any
other man. Have one on me."
Old Hoss shook his head at the bartender.
"Nope. Johnnie. Now or never. My
nerve's kind of ootin' like, and I' for plas
tertn' the landscape of Gold Plume with
this J. Matthews right now. Gun's o. k.,
is it? All right. Jump along."
The bartender watched them through the
door before he sat down and collapsed.
Old Hoss and the man with murder In
his mind stopped at the doof of the Times
Dispatch office. A Job press was clinking
rythmically within, and by the dirty front
window one could see the back of a printer
swaying with the regular motion of his
arm. All was peace.
"Now, remember," said Old Hoss, "you
don't let that trigger finger o' yours git
nervous, because ITn here to see that you
tote fair. Deliver your opinion first, and
then do your shootin' prompt."
Certnln. Dead sure thing." Johnnie was
grinding out his words between his teeth
and he looked pretty sober.
'Then in you go." Old Hoss shoved John
nie ahead of him through the door. "There
that little cage to the left."
On the wooden partlt'ion was a sign which
read, "Ye Editor."
The maneuvers of Old Hoss at this point
were peculiar. He followed very close be
hind Johnnie, with his hands breast high
and ln easy reach of the latter's right
elbow. His attitude was all alertness.
A girl In a shirtwaist sat within, pound
ing a typewriter. She looked up as they
pushed through the door.
Johnnie had not counted on stenographers.
He stood abashed for a moment.
Go on! Git to your klllin'," whispered
Old Hoss In the ear of the avenger.
' Johnnie Duff spoke a bit falterlngly.
"Would you tnlnd getting out a minute.
Miss, and sending In J. Matthews, the edi
tor? Just tell that J. Matthews there's a
gentleman that has Important doings on
The girl laughed and looked, full at
Johnnie. She had a clear, blue eye, a
saucy nose and a straight carriage. John
nie noted all this, even at that Bolemn and
"I can't send J. Matthews In," she said,
"because, you see I'm J. Matthews. I'm
the editor. What can I do for you?"
Old Hoss observed that Johnnie Duff's
right arm dropped to his side.
"And seeln's I wasn't needed, I pulled
my freight and left him to his slaughter,"
he said when he told the tale afterward.
He went Into the composing room, and
spilled over the neck of the foreman and
whispered In his ear. The foreman ex
ecuted a dance and swelled up with silent
laughter. Old Hoss seized upon him, bent
him over an Imposing stone and pounded
him in a rupture of silent Joy.
They straightened up as though someone
had shot an electric current through them,
for from behind the partition there sounded
a shot, another shot and still another.
Old Hoss turned white and drew his gun.
The foreman, for he was a man of the
world, ducked under the Imposing stone.
"My God, he's done it!" cried Old Hoss.
He broke for the sanctum, tore through
He saw the girl standing In a corner, a
little pale, but smiling. Johnnie Duff aat

at the door and .the intruder.
"Don't draw. Old Hoss." said Johnnie:

permission of Miss Josephine Matthews,
sort of by way of putting the Joke back
and shutting your fool mouth. There's the
holes in the floor. This gun is pointed your
way because I want to be formally intro
duced. I've got Just a heap of things to
