" SAN FRANCISCO, April 19.—An earthquake which was felt all over the northern part of the state occurred during the night and was the most severe since the disturbance of 1806. While many persons were injured thus far no deaths have been reported although there are numerous unverified rumors of loss of life in portions of the state inaccessible by telegraph. The loss to property will probably reach $1,000,000. The town of Vacuville seems to have been the center of the shock. Main street presents a picture of great devastation. The thoroughfare is blocked with brick, lumber, mortar, and tangled wires. There is not u brick building on the south side of the street that was not more or less wrecked and some of them are a total loss. Tho shock struck the town at just 8:49 o'clock and lasted fully three-fourths of a minute. AN The vibrations were at first from southwest to northeast, and then changed suddenly to north and south. Fronts of buildings were thrown into the street, chimneys were twisted and torn as if Struck by a Kansas Cyclone. and the entire population rushed into the streets. That there were no fatalities is little short of a miracle, though there were a number of very narrow escapes. The front is out of the Odd Fellows hall, Masonic hall, Chitenden's grocery store, Hack's hardware store, Rainber's cigar store, Thomas' grocery store and Joe Donovan's barber shop. Davis' butcher shop was a total loss. The Plate block, the finest in the town, was almost totally destroyed. In this block were located the opera hall, post- office, Wells-Fargo office, Crystal Bros.' dry goods store and several other firms. The Brunswick House, a large two story structure, suffered severely. Some of the citizens have made figures on the total loss in town and place it from $150,000 to $200,000. Now* of Disaster comes from all directions in this section. In Pleasant Valley between here and Winters the shock was terrific and it is said not a chimney is standing in the entire valley. Business at Vacaville is almost suspended. Men are engaged in' clearing away the wreck, A temporary post- office has been improvised. Never before was there such a visitation to the beautiful Vaca valley and there is a feeling of gratitude that no loss of life attended the disaster. At Winters. The Bhock at Winters caused great damage. There is not a chimney standing in the town. Main street presents a badly wrecked appearance. The large new D. V. Bliss hotel suffered consid- ably, much of the brick front caving into the street. There were about forty guests asleep in the hotel , when the shock occurred and men, women and children ran from the building in terror. Mrs. Bertha Roberts was rather severely hurt by falling plaster. So far as known she is the only person injured, although many other narrow' escapes are reported. Sixty feet of fire wall of the new Cridwick building on Main street toppled westward upon the frame roof of Judy Bros.' stables, and crashing through completely buried six horses in their stalls. The ]oss to the town is estimated at between $70,000 and $100,000. Reports are just beginning to come in of damage in the country hereabouts. Two miles southeast of Winters J. R. Wolfskill's large stoqe house was totally wrecked. He was asleep with his wife when the wall crushed in just missing the bed and saving their lives. Up Berryeesa road the passage is blocked by immense boulders, some weighing several tons, which were thrown with mighty force down the hillsides into the road. There is a distressing rumor afloat about the demolition of the little town of Monticello, seventeen miles from Winters, There is no railroad or telegraphic communication therewith and at this time there is no way of verifying the reports.

UNFAITHFUL WIFE CREMATES HUSBAND AND CHILD. She Attemptn to Escape wit)) Her Trover, ;.' but Both A-e Killed by a Hull —Uaui- , ac'ing Evidence Said to lluvo Keen Secured Aeaiust Montana Cattlemen. BRISTOL, Tenn., April 23.—News has reached here of a terrible double tragedy which occurred in the mountain region of Kentucky. Syl Harwell was a well-to-do farmer of that section. He had been married three years and hard lived happy with his wife. A few days ago, however, he made the startling discovery that his wife was intimate with a young man named Alex Brady. Monday night Mrs. Harwell thoroughly saturated with kerosene oil the bed on which* her husband and infant was sleeping, and threw a firebrand thereon, then darted out of the house. The building was soon wrapped in flames. Among those attracted to the scene by the light was Brady. After looking on a few moments he and Mrs. Harwell started away together across a field, and were attacked by a savage bull and gored to death. Mrs. Harwell lived a few hours and acknowledged the facts as related above. HAD MANY ON THE LIST. Much Evidence Secured Against Wyoming Cattlemen Now Under Arreat. CHEYENNE, Wy., April 23.—Through Sheriff Mai com Campbell, of Converse county, it is learned that Sheriff Angus and County Attorney Bennett, of Johnson county, have procured evidence against the cattlemen. They have unearthed the design of the expedition and extent of the depredations intended. The baggage of the members of the expedition captured proved, it is claimed, that the whole party can be indicted not only for murder, but for treason and insurrection. In the gripsack of Canton, one of the prominent men of the expedition, was found a list of seventy rustlers who were to be either shot or hanged; also a list of ranch houses that were burned. They claim also to have evidence that a contract has been made with the Texans of the party to give them $5 a day and $50 all around for every man they killed. The plan of operation, Sheriff Campbell says, included the capture of Buffalo and the murder of several men of the town, together with the destruction of their property. They were also to capture Casper and Douglas and visit vengeance on several men at each place. The operations of the expeditions were to cover the counties of Johnson, National and Converse, and that the in- vadera were to be joined by a similar expedition gotten up in Eranston, Wy., and at Billings, Mou. These two forces were to be joined in Johnson county the week following the date of the capture of the cattlemen's party.
