For weeks a number of slides had occurred in the mountains doing a great deal of damage, and no one has felt safe in residing or work" ine where a slide was possible' but the- most shocking accl dent occurred here last Thursday just before noon. Tbe ditch of the Trinity Gold Mining Company patsss along the side of a mountain, where it can be viewed from tbe town, and one of tbe company noticed that a slide of immense proportions had occurred, cutting the two ditches belonging to tbe company, but the worst was not known until Saturday, when a messenger was sent to inquire about tbe safety of the Suudea brothers, who were operating a claim some distance below thf slide.

A Week of Good Theatrical Performances at the Oakland 1 heater. Joseph R. Grismer, the accomplished actor, and his wife, known on tbe stsge as Miss Pboete Davis, made a long tour of tbe Eastern States during tbe past winter, and everywhere were received bv large audiences and favor. Tbev will soon leave this countrv for a tour of the theaters in Australia. Their last performances before taking stt-amer for tbeir long trip are in Oakland, this week, and at tbe Alcazar Theater, Sn Francisco. The week's engagement at the Oakland Theater began last evening, when a cbaroiing performance of Thomas' drama. The Burglar, founded upon the s:ory for children, "Editha's Burglar," was given. The little girl, trained by Mr. Grismer for tbN plav, gives a perfectly natural performance of her part. I he plav is psthetis and vet not lack ing in the comedy element. Both Mr. and Mrs. Grismer sbine in the leading roles. This evening The Burglar will be repeated. On Wednesday and Thursday evenings, the plav will be The Tuiress. a dramatization by Ramsay Korris of bis own novel, "Crucify Her." Friday evening, tbe Grisrners will play Clay JM. Greene's picturesque drama, Furgive, in which L. R. Stock-well will play tbe Liart' of "Denver Dan." Saturday night, the modern melodrama. The lt'ui tf Against Her, will be played. MORE TALES OF CRIME. Suspicions Characters Jailed Police Detectives. by the Some of the Reported Thefts ot Credited by the Authorities-The c Wst Burslary. In connection with the many bur glanes that are disturbing the peace nf the city, a couple of suspicious charac te.-s were arrested this morning by th police and the me.i irere imprisoned as suspects, no charge being entered against them. In their possession was found a quantity of clothes, mostly new, and. on being interrogated as to where they obtained them, they stated that they bt-gaed tbem at different residences about the city. This story seems lame, however, as Ihe clothes have evidently not been worn, and people are not in the habit of giving away ptopertv of much value. In connection with the affair, the i olice say that if tbe people desire to give away clothes they should give them to the Associated Cliarites, wbitber all applications should be referred. Another tale of burglary has been poured into the ears of tbe police, the report bting made by William J. Bradford, a foreman carp'enter, residing at 111 Hannah street. Bradford states that on Thursday last his residence was entered, during his absence, and $100 tbat he had placed for safe keeping in his trunk was taken. The police say, however, that nothing about the room appears to have been disturbed, aud that no one but Bradford knew of the money btinsr in the trunk. So it is not likely tbat a thief would be inspired to go directly to the place where the money was hidden. The statement of the robbing of tbe man in front of Franke's pickle factory is rejected by the police. In connection with the attempted burglary at the Wf st residence, on Friday last, tbe facts of which were printed exclusively in The Tribvse, W. G. Miller, who resides on Webster street, immediately opposite the West residence, is in possession of facts cor-rdtoraiive 6? tG ZlZZZ tC tT l'S!?r printed in these columns. He stated that, on the evening the attempt was made, he noticed two younc men about the street, one of whom he describes as a short young fellow of about 25 years of age. with a round, pleasant face, and dressed rather neatly ; at the other he could not get a' good look. The individual described is the one who called at the West house and examined the rear under the pretext of obtaining something to eat, and who is therefore believed to be connected with the burglarious call later on m the evening. TRAINS ARRIVED. The Central Overland Clear Again. Koute The delayed overland trains of the Central route were liberated from the snow last night, and all ot them arrived at the pier before daylight. Tbe trains were made np in three sections at Sacramento, tbe first arrived at 2 03 a.m., the second at 5.05 and the third section came iu at 6.07.

Wilder, and the disabled engine wss taken to the shops. THE GHASTLY MUMMERY. Only Undertakers' Assistants Present at tbe Shocking Banquet. Undertakers engaged in business in this city explain tbat they bad no 'part in the hideous and disgusting mummery at the banquet in San Francisco last Saturday evening. Tbe banquet was given by the Undertakers' AiuMants'1 Association, of which owners ot unuerracers businesses are not members r.eputaoie undertakers are justly incensed at tbe ghastly jokes on death circulated about the table, and may, in consequence, try to abolish the association of assistants. At the disgraceful banquet on Saturday evening last, but tiro Oakland men were nresent to nartake of the tnnono a la Morgue and the chicken embalmed. Two Children Lost. Two children were reported as lost at tbe police station this afternoon.

The Tumnltnoua Gatherincrs on the Streets are Likely to be stopped Peremptorily. The-re will be woe in the ranks of the woe proclamiers. for at 11 o'clock this morning, at the instance of H. Myers, a warrant was issued for the arrest of their prophet and leader, George A. Erickson. When the officers went to serve it at Erickson's residence, 091 Pine street, tbey were temporarily foiled, for the prophet was out ai the Watts' tract, but they laid their plans so as to arrest him immediately on his return. He will be awarded quarters in the county jail, where his liberty wilt be restrained, not as a result necessarily of the desire to break up the street-meetings, but because it is alleged that Erickson is insane. Tbe proofs of his mental derangement are said to be contained in tbe prophecies issued by him (the articles of faith of the doom-sealers), which have been condensed into pamphlet fof-m and will be offered iu evidence against him. The fo'lowing is the full text of hi remarkable statements, which, as it will be seen, will necesitate the selection of another site for the World's Fair: Till". DOOM OF THE CITIES. wok! woe! woe! I, George A. Erection, of Fredrikshold. Norway, being in tbe .Spirit on the 21th, 2Mb.. 2i"th, and 27th of January, ls:0. aud shown by the Loid the coming destruction of the following cities: On the 24th I saw the destruction, bv eartbqu&ke, nf Pau Francisco and Oakland the waves of the ocean corr iug aleo and covering them over, aud the great ships on the bay being foundered. On Saturday, the 25th, I saw again the destruction of Ban Francisco and Oakland, with that of Alameda. The Lord then, also revcvled to me the date of deduction, viz., eighty days from that day Saturday, January i'.th, 1S90. On Sunday. January 2t'.th, in the morn-ills', I arose and made my morning prayer, and was again in the power of the spirit. Then Uod revealed to me that Chicago would he destroyed on the same date as San Francisco, Oakland, aud Alameda. Sunday afternoon nao a vision anoui the Lord showe world, in five di rope, Asia, Africa, and Australia. Then the Lord showed me the five wounds in his body, where he was pierced and suffered for each of these parts of the world. He pointed to the wounds in K,a In-A Kamte q n . 1 liri faal 11 . hla sirf. with blood runn ine out. for these five parts of tbe world. The blood was able to save tbem all. God showed me a terrible pestilence iu Ainca. r ranee starts war with Russia, and England shall be in the war also. Knssia t-ball win at lest, but France shall do great damase before that. In China, there will be a great famine and many thousands die. Floods and great heat in Australia. In North America, there will he a great earthquake. On the 27th of January God showed me agaiu the destruction of San Francisco, Oakland, ; Alameda and Milwaukee. Then the Lord thowed me all the ships around San Francisco on the bay and Oakland and Alameda and their piers and ferryboats Bg ihovod me. that there would be a great" vortex aud swallow them all up. Then Be showed me the great city 6r Chicago and its railways, and that it would sink in the earthquake, and the waters of Lake Michigan would flow over it. It would appear no more. There should be heard no more whistle of the cars therein: no more voice of man: the name of Chlcaeo even should be beard no more. The Lord then showed me the line of the Northwestern Railway, from Chicago to Milwaukee. He showed me that Milwaukee would sink like Chicsgo, In the same great earthquake, aud that Lake Michigan would cover it the same ai Chicago. Then God showed me F.urope again an oer wars. He showed me tbat Eutrland would itSS. Ed Siveden'-woufd Tola this war.

Norway, 1 also, has done much for the size of tbe couutry, as has also Sweden. The countries having' most Catholics in them would bave the heaviest judgment. Tbe cities of .San Francisco. Oakland and Alameda will sink by the earthquake in four minutes. People goto the mountains. You will be saved if you get to the mountains. The mountains will shake a little, but 11 will be saved who are on the tops of the mountains. God told me that tbe people should leave for the mountains seven days before the earthquake. Those who have money should take it all with them and just clothes enough to get along with, aud food for about three weeks. Then God showed me how the poor should do.

When they see the distress of these cities they shall all come down to one level, God shall melt the hearts of the rich. They shall get tbeir tents and lire in tents on the mountains. After three weeks thev shall scatter and go to tbe Eastern States. God will preserve the railways, that they may go hast on them. Tbe rich will help the poor to flee away. God told me tbat there would be a new city built on the mountain aide, near the Golden Gate, called "San Kranciseo Fall." He showed me there shall be no more Oak-ladd or Berkeley, but a place called "San Fablo oa-vee.-' Chicago will never be rebuilt We are too ncartbe end of the world, which will come in 18.

War in Europe, after it has begun, will lastnutil Jesus comes. There will be no war in America, but a hard time pestilence, wind, and storms. f City Attorney Johnon was asked this morning what he thinks about the passage of an ordinance to restrain the street Fathering. He said: "I atn of opinion that one can be framed that will meet tbe case, for, notwithstanding the clause in the Constitution giving to everv one an independent risht for mib- l lie worship, it evident that this can- j noi be so sweeping as to mean that the ' liberties and rights of cities are to be nullified tberebv.

Speaking of the matter, Mr. Church said: "These street gsthering. whether for religious purioses or not, undoubtedly obstruct the free passage of public thoroughfares and are in my opinion a direct violation of the penal code, and. tderefore. those who cause them are subject to conviction." Meantime the petition asking for the passage of a prohibitory ordinance is ciaking tbe round' of the business establishments of Pro.idway, and will probably le presented at tbe next meeting cf the Council. THAT AWFl'L DAY. The Doom-Sealers Given Tad a Notoriety. The predicrionists and doom-sealers, led by Ienne!t, tbe bicyclist, Dr. Smith, ami Rice, tbe begging boy evangelist, continue tbeir antics upon the street, corners. They can always draw crowd of the curious, just as other' fakirs and itinerants do, but tbe impression which an alarmist San Francisco paper seems to desire to create, tbat there i- any general alarm in the city at the wild vaporing of the intellectual lightweights, has absolutely no foundation. That a few of Mrs. Woodworth's adherents will leave for tbe high ground, on before April 7th, is reasonably cer tain, but they will very ad vactageonsly be missed. If there were any way to keep them from coming back, steps would probably be taken for its adoption. Some of thedoomers have said that thev were selling out their worldly possessions at a sacrifice Probably most any of tbe junk dealers could bnj them all up without a great financial strain, but if any of them own realty of appreciable value they can be accommodated in tbeir desire to sell at most any of tbe rea' estate offices. Tnere are plenty of capitalists willing to risk a few dollars on tbe subsidence) of things material, if a small profit on tbe transaction is possible. The colored evangelists have ceased their efforts at Ceuter-street station, at least, temporarily. WITHIN SIX MONTHS.
