CHILLAN, Chile, Jan. 20.--In the dcbris-flllcd streets, amid the ruined buildings and homes of this earthquake wrecked city, a wild-eyed man, hU facial muscles working, ran up and fltoutcd in my faces: "I lost four children!" His voice rose to a piercing scream: "Bi t I'm alive . . . I'm alive." The roofs of the two theatres had fallen in and the walls had fallen in on lop of them. Both were filled with men, women and children Tuesday night when the quaka rocked the earth. I was Informed that there were 200 dead persons buried in the ruins of each one. A man was poking distractedly in a heap of ruins, now and then pullout a board. He was asked what he was doing. Ho pointed to a partly finished box, crudely constructed Then he pointed to the headless corpse of a woman. He was making a casket In which to bury her. The woman had been his wife. Looking through a broken wall, I saw the corpse of a girl. A falling timber had crushed her. It was obvious what she had been doing when death grabbed her. She had; been running across the rocking j floor of the room, trying to escape because her dead hand still clutched the knob of i. fallen door. Near her was a headless corpse. Everywhere, men and women were wandering about In the ruins. Most of them seemed out of their heads. Some prayed. Some wept. Some merely regarded one with a blank and stupid stare. A thick yellow dust --from the smashed adobe houses-hung heavily still in the air. It covered everything. The faces, the hands, the clothing of the survivors were thin with it and my eyes and pores were choked with It. Every street was choked with debris. Entire blocks were uneven masses of debris with not a building standing. Bodies were everywhere, In the streets, in the piles of rubbish, arms and legs showing through crumbled mortar and shattered timbers. There were so many bodies and so few living that dead bodies seemed m/ire normal than Twins ones and soon II hardly noticed death. I was told (hat of the city's 40,000 Inhabitants, 10,000 had been killed and 10,000 more were wounded or mibS- ng. Most of the missing, presumably, still were now dead men and women buried under debris. From what I saw, I believe these estimates to be Approximately correct. Only one. of the buildings'around Chilian's plaza remained standing. The hotel, the police station, the cathedral, the postofficc, nnd the telegraph building were all in ruins and fire still raged in some of them. The building ot La Discussion, the principal morning newspaper, was also levelrd. The immense brick walls oC what had been the, massive cathedral in the northeast corner of the plaza, had been thrown down.- I met Lieutenant Commander Julio Santibanez ot the navy. He had been cnroutc to his base at Talcahuano and had stopped here for the night, staying at the Central Hotel, which was full. "I, was standing near a door," he said. "I ran out with another man. We were the only ones saved. The other guests, the owners, and the servants perished." The one ouilding standing on the plaza was white, of three stories, the owner invited me in and his daughter, asked what she had experienced, said the house shook "like jelly."
