THE EABTHQT7AXE. a At 4:25 Xmas mpming the hardest earthquake experienced for years was felt in Southern California. No damage of any character done in our town, yet clocks were stopped and top heavy articles of various descriptions were upset, and the populace shaken up in geiieral. Many who had never felt an earthquake before were considerably frightened. The quake lasted about 30 seconds l>ut it seemed much longer. Other towns did not fare so well, and Hemet and San Jacinto in Riverside county seem to have been damaged the most severely. Hardly a chimney is left standing in these two towns, and ma*ny\fine brick buildings are utterly n™ed—some having the walls rowAdown entirely and others ked-srbsdff    íl¡[5^cKéR,~of    stlglrcfy ¿lem unsafe. No lives were Ibst in these places; but six Indians fvere killed and a number were wounded by the falling of the wall of an adobe building a few miles away. The damage to property Will runup into the hundreds of thousands. Some idea of the unseen power beneath our feet is obtained by these occurrences. Xmas day was made unusually sad by the frightful wreck at our very doors. The sympathetic chords of each heart were touched at the sofrow of others. s. ' M. V 4 Proctor & Gambel Soap—27 bars for 25c at Doughty’s. W. A. Johnstone was painfully bimied last Monday evening while acting as Santa Glaus at the Xmas tree at the M. E- church. A long false beard which he wore became ignited from one of the candles and in a few seconds the flames had sprefcd all over his body, being fed by the cotton which adorned his costume. By rushing out and roU-in the sand the flames were ex tinguished. He was taken to Pomona for medical treatment, but was not severely burned.—Later— ■ The burn has proven more severe than was first thought and he is now confined to his bed.

Mr. Hebbard escaped without injury. Mr. Thurman was one of a party of Pomona baseball players returning from Los Angeles, where they played with the San Bernardino team on Sunday.

Tesámony tending to show the train’s rem irkabie speed and the ab-tals was given also by Miss nner,%Will Thurman and Charles Laiibarger, the latter having been travelng in company with deceased Georjge Shanklin. W. H. Poston testifie4,to having assisted in carry ing dead an^ wounded from the wreckage.    ^ E. H. Mcíílung, of Crafton, bfsggage man on the itrain, swore that he was not aware éf any unusual sbeed and was busy gistting baggage ready for Pomona stalfion when the accident occurred. He’had no knowledge of cause of wreck, but thought it was the result of a broken wheel. Reverring the en gine or applying air brakes would not in his opinion cause a train to leave the track. A broken wheel might cause it, even on engine tender. Edward Fitzgerald, the conductor, testified that the train was five minutes late on leaving Lordsburg and that the ratq'Sfcpeed maintained up to time of accident would have brought them to Pomona station five minutes late. He believes the authorized speed on White avenue was fifteen miles an hour, and thought they were not exceeding that speed. He had no knowledge of cause of accident, but he thought the broken wheel did it. The train had been inspected before leaving Los Angelps and nothing Whatever was wrong with its equipment- Had known Engineer Johnson for twenty-five years as an exceedingly careful and vigilant mabHBOber, and one in whom the company and all who knew him imposed every confidence. Had talked with him just ISiefore leaving Los Angeles and found him in usual good spirits. 1 Their runnin¿speed between stations was something like thirty-five or forty miles an hour and to bring the train to a stop a quarti^ of a mile would be covered. The brakes were working all right and applying thehi would not have a tendency to lift the engine from the track. The wheel which found broken appeared to have a in it. T.

Holland, accompanied by Stenographer E. F. Strubel, reached omona Tuesday on the 9:21 a. m. train : rom Los Angeles and at once impaneled a jury consisting of the following: H. Paine, C. B. Messenger, J. F. Jlery, J. F. Bowen, A. J. Fry, L. R. Matthews and John Gould. 'The first witness called was Arthur Hebbard, on the ill-fated ony as to the decided was i^ry "rate, for een Lordsburg next witness. who was a train. He train’s ipeedi far in excess half the dista and the place o Fred Palmer He was impressed with the unusual speed of the train as it neared the place of accident and heard no signals after leaving Lordsburg. Arthur Sunday had ridden on fast trians all over the country, but never at such speed as the/ train made coming over from Lords- The case was given to the jury at 12 o’clock, and iat 3:3(1 o’clock the following verdictjwas rendered; “We, the jury, find that the cause of death was a railíQad accident on the Southern Pacific railroad in the city of Pomona between White avenue and Cypress stree|; and our belief is that in accordance with the evidence as introduced saij accident was the result of exceptional hiigh rate of speed, which was not only cingerous but illegal.” wKeck notes. Charles B. Hutchinson made an un-, ceremonious |)ut fortunate exit from the ill-fated l^in. He was sitting in the head passenger coach that was so badly demoUg^^ and raised the window to put his bead out to look ahead, when the car gave^ a lungeUsTE left the track and shot him out through the window. V' A Chinaman with numerous cuts about bis'faca snd head was asked how he got out of Ihé "irreck. He replied: ¿‘Smash go Jrlndow; me shoot out; light on head.” Edward Fitzgerald, the conductor in charge of the» train, is one of*?he most popular conductors on the line. His many Pomoaa friends congratulated him heartily] on his escape without serious injur^ for he was tn-xthe passenger coach just back of the c^^ina- tion car. >    '    \ Special Soujthern Pacific Officer Miles Bowler, of Angeles, and Claim Agent Bagley, of San Francisco, are in Pomona looking after the railroad’s interests. C. E. Donnatin, m^ ter car builder, came out from Loe An-gelesf to be \itith his injured eon. A fire alarm was sounded and the department turned out and reached the scene quickly, it was thought for a few minutes'^hat their services would be needed. Bad as this catastrophe was, the horrors of fire were escaped and the appa^’atus was taken back. Seeing the report that August Lafourcade, of Cucamonga, was injured in the wreck, E. L. Hutchison came out from Los Angeles as Mr. Lafourcade is a friend of his. Mr. Hutchison found that it was Peter Tarride, who was wrongly identified as *Mr. Lafburcade, and he is also a friend. In conjunction with Claim Agent Bagley and Special Officer Bowler, Attorney D. R. Sessions, head of the claimtt department in San Francisco, is attending to damage cases. 0 At the Pacific hotel and the depot «rc 14HI|iiiiii taken from the cars.

The three left for San Bernardino with., the body yesterday morning. The “thirteen” superstition received another knockout blow in this casualty. The last coach contained thirteen people and not one was injured by anything more severe than fright. H. A. Gruwell, of 808 East First street, who has been here from Santa Barbara county only two weeks, had fnown the late George Shanklin since boyhood. The late Mrs. Conner was another friend of his, and her husband, Dr. Chwles E. Conner, was Mr. Gru-well’s family physician while in Lompoc, and Mr. Gruwell is also á friend of Charles Lambarger, one of those injured in the wreck. J. B. Morris, of Ontario, was another slightly injured victim. G. Clifford Egan, E. C. Bichowsky and F. C. Bowermaster were slightly njured in the wreck. Messrs.
