Down the street in an automobile belonging to ex-Mayor James D. Phelan came Abe Real, the triumphant Republican boss. When he saw De Young he waved his hat and called out a hearty greeting, to whic~h De Young responded with a gay salute. For one not intimate with San Francisco to fully realize what this means he must be told that Real, Phelan and De Young are the respec- tive leaders of the most bitter and antagonistic political factions in the .west. If you still doubt that the millenium is upon us go down the street two blocks to where the relief committee is working 24"hours a day from the showroom of a vegetable grocer and you will find Gavin McNabb and Abe Reuf with chairs and arms touching, laughing at the same grlm ea?thquake jokes and putting the two craftiest heads in San Francisco together for the immediate relief of the afflicted. A week ago as the bosses respective- ly of the Republican and Democratic ranks, America could have afforded no more striking instance of deadly rivalry than would have been adduced by mention of these two names.

Up and down all the streets one can see curbstone fires, where the peo- ple are cooking their meals in obedi- ence to the municipal order to light no fires in the houses. They being without large ranges, small kitchen stoves, improvised sheet iron ovens and the old brick Dutch ovens are used and from which are turned out some wonderful concoctions. Most of the servants have either run away or been sent away and the peo- ple who get their own meals out of doors are among the best in the city. Cooking their dinners in the streets may be seen girls who have been edu- cated at Stanford, Berkeley, Vassar and Bryn Mawr. Spreckels Heir Born on Sidewalk. But of all the astounding leveling feats accomplished by the fire and earthquake the most remarkable oc- curred in front of the Pacific avenue home of Rudolf Spreckels. son of the president of the sugar trust.

Young men who can swing a small capital to-day wtll be millionaires in a few years. Millionaires who to-day are walking the streets mourning over their ill-luck will never again be flush. San Francisco, queen city of chance, born of the gambling fever, bred of the gambling energy, dreamed out of a gambler's visions of wealth and glory, with a fierce and terrible grandeur, has smitten all who loved her and said to the half million who had,sworn by her: "It's not a fair shake; start again." Rescue Insane People. Many stories of heroism lie buried in ' the ruins, but some tales that make the heart tingle are slowly filtering through official sources. This is the story of the noble work performed by Mrs. Kane matron of the Detention hospital, and Policeman John McLean, who was de- tailed there the night of the great earth- quake. The insane patients at the ruined city hall were kept in locked cells, from which only the keys of the stewards could free them, At the hour of dawn on that fatal Wednesday morning, the structure in which the courts were housed was the first to fall. The weight tense- nervous energency and the officer the detention hospital, which was on the ground floor. Steward Manville was so badly injured by the falling ruins that he died two days later. Mrs. Kane and Policeman McLean, however, man- aged to rush outside to momentary safety, Both of them are well advanced in years, but the nurse is a woman of in- tense nervous energy and the officer Is a man of giant frame. As soonus they reached the open court fhey were greet- ed. by the t errified shrieks of the insane that pierced through the smoking rulns around; They refused to leave thelz" helpless charges, and both went back into the-6haotic debris. New" B~dings Are Planned. The work of rebuilding San Fram cisco will proceed rapidly. Mrs. Her- man 0elrichs of New York has agreed to repair the Rialto building and to build again on the site of the Crossley~ She and~her sister, Mrs. W. K. Vander- bilt, Jr., have also stated that they will put up solid office structures on their MontgOmery street site. To Ask Loan of Congrsss. Congress may be asked to appropri- ate $100,000,000 to rebuild a new metropolis on the Pacific coast on the site of the devastated city, the money to be loaned on real estate security for 25 years at two per cent. per an- num. This project, it is said, will be ]aid before the president and the leaders of both political prties in congress by Herbert Law, a San Francisco capital- 1st, after a conference with the lead- ing business men of the city. WhSHININN LETTER PROPOSALS IN REGARD TO NI- AGARA FALLS. FRAMING NEW LEGISLATION Interesting Theory of a Former U. S. Consul--Root of All Languages in Samoan Tongue--De- natured Alcohol, ASHINGTON. ~ A striking proposal has been made to ttle river and hal'- bor committee of the house, which is engaged just now in framing legislation to the- serve the beauty of Niagara Falls. One of tile llower zolvpanies, which has a charter to use watc, r from the Niagara river and v,,lii,-lt would be cut off from th~ en- Ioylnent of this charter by the enact- ment of Chairman Barton's bill, has JI'f6r(:(i, ill case it i~ perndtted to u,,~ a portion of the water conceded hy its :ha:ter, to I.er.orul an eAgifleering teat which, instead of diminishing the glor? of the falls, will greaHy enhance .ta .spectacular beaut y.

After the proposed ~xca~ation the fall will be 40,000 cubic Ieet. that in Samoa he had discovered the earliest reducible language. Mr. Rico sent this letter to Senator ,~ittredge, a member of the United States senate from South Dakota, suggesting that some means be found by which Mr. Churchill could devote his life work to the prosecution of his philological researches. Senator Kittredge brought the matter to the attention of Mr. L. A. Coolidge, formerly a leading Jour- nalist of Washington and a man of scientific knowledge and attainments. Mr. Rice's rare discovery was dis- cussed and it at once excited the deep- est interest among scientific men in this city. It was determined to or- ganize a philological society for the purpose of encouraging Mr. Cuurchill's work. The society was organized by the election of Hen. W. L. Chambers, for- merly chief Justice of the Samoan court, as president; Mr. Westcott, sec- retary; Mr. L. A. Coolidge, treaslrer. Judge Chambers knew Mr. Churchill when the latter was in the consular service in Samoa and knew of his de- votion to the study of the Samoan language and has great confidence in his ability to establish the theory that lhe Samoan ianguage is the father of ~aH languages.

One of the com- panies, for in- s t a n c e, proposes that it be I)ermtt- ted to use 17,900 cubic feet of~vater a second. This, it is figured, at a fall of 295 feet would produce 450,000 horse power. The use of this amount of horse power means new employment for 228,000 men, rep- resenting a population of 1,140,000. Based upon the census population of 1900 it would yield gross annual prod- ucts to the amount of $514,000,000. The value of all the farm property in the state of New York in 1900 was $1,069,- 00~),000, the income from which at 20 per cent. would be $213,000,000, which is only about 40 per cent. of $514,000,- 000. It is also estimated that the use of power to this extent will save 3,000,- t)00 tons of coal a year, representing an annual disbursement of $7,500,v00, If. this could be accomplished by the use of 17,900 cubic ,feet of water per second, it is easily figured how much ~ould he accomplished by the use of the entire force of the falls, which is 222,000 cubic feet per second. Of course, that will never be realized; be- cause it Is plain that the people will not permit the entire force of the falls to be devoted to utilitarian purposes; but something of what it signifies may be judged from the words of Daniel Webster who said at Rochester In t844: "If the Thames had a fall of 250 feet within the limits of London London would not be a tows, but would be the whole world." Philological Research. HE Carnegie insti- tute is going to make it possible to discover the root of all lan- guages, if money c a n accomplish that result. Rep- resentations have been made to it that have com- manded at once H5,000 ~or the presecution of a re- eareh Into this interesting subject. At the instance of the Washington Philological society the Carnegie in- stitute has authorized William Church- ill, of New York, formerly United States consul in Samoa, to complete a most interesting investigation which he has been presecuting and which he believes will unquestionably prove that the root of all language is in the Samoan tongue. The Washington Philological society Is of recent origin and owes its being to the interest exc.'~d by Mr. Church- [ll's most interesting researches. Not long ago Mr. Churchill wrote to a for- mer classmate in the class of '82 at Yale. Mr. James Rice. a letter in ~'kl,~ he seemed to prove most clearly industry has been estahlished. This alcohol is expected to form a staple product of the country and be used as fuel and in the manufa, ctures and ia the running og explosive engine~. Iu Germany the bulk ot denatured alcohol is used for the purpose of light, fuel and heat. A lamp is made which produces a very strong, steady aad high grade light by the nse og alco- hol. Experiments have been made with this lamp which show that one gallon of alcohol is equal to two gal- lons of kerosene fcr lighting purposes, l During the pas~ Iew months exi:eri- fments have been made in adapting gasoline power engines to the use of alcohol. In Germany this has bees successfully done for a number of years. There they mix 25 per cent. of the gasoline with the alcohol and ob- tain a more ready ignition of the fluid. The experiments in this country show that alcohol can be used by itself and ~the operation of the engine with its use is perfect. It is estimated that there are 300,- 000 motor engines in use in this coun- try and the number is growing greatly every year, the annual output being more than 100,000. These engines are used on the farm for pumping water cutting feed, filling silos, threshing grain and all the uses to which a sta- tionary power on a farm is adapted. The abjection to the use of gasoline is [the danger of fire to farm buildings. The gasoline fire cannot be quenched with water. This danger is minimized by the use of alcohol, as an alcohol fire can be extinguished by use of water, Waste of Crops. HE possibilities of mm ! this new indus- try read like the dreams of Mulber- ry Sellers. By turning potatoes and corn into al- cohol a t:e~ler prlc~ for those crops can be oh- tained and at the same time the farmer can have ~t hand a conveni- ent fuel and light and material for running all his farm machinery. A bushel of corn will make almost five proof gallons of alcohol. The corn has averaged in price tor some years past about 43 cents a bushel. Alcohol after it has been denatured by the use of crude wood ah-ohol is worth about 20 cents a gallon. This would mean that a bushel of corn could be turned into about 90 cents worth of denatured al- cohol. At the same time where corn is cheap and where potatoes are cheap this alcohol can be made cheaper than the price for which gasoline and kero- sene sell. In Europe the principal ma- terial for the manufacture of dena- tured alcohol, is the potato, but corn seems to be the best material found in this country. It does not need to be the highest grade of corn or potatoes, so that the farmer expects to be able to utilize a great deal of what has hitherto been waste in his cro/)s. He can sell for food his largest and best potatoes and then turn the smaller and immature fruit into alcohol. If his corn should not all be perfect he can use it up in a profitable way by mak- ing it into alcohol to run his automo- bile, his motor launch or his farm ma- chinery. Other grain, such as oats and wheat, that does not come up to the standard, can also be utilized and the visions of wealth now dancing be- fore the eyes of the iarmer are wry attractive. 90LORAD0 NEWS ITEMS A meeting of the Transcontinental Passenger Association will be held at Colorado Springs in July.
