Acconmvi to Senator (jorman, tho
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal has ended its
existence lu tho flood, and It will no longer
bo a medium of communication and trans
portation.' The canal day has about reached
Its end, anyway, but tho C. ife O. Canal has
been a source ot business to Georgetown,
and largo quantities of Cumberland coal
have been brought down It to tho yards In
that part Of tho town and from thero ships
have carried It to all points. It has lecu a
feeder to tho greatest Industry of tho town,
and Just what tho result of Its destruction
will bo cannot jet bo determined. A rail
road along tho bed of tho canal will, no
doubt, ho one of the results ot tho flood.

"It is Sodom and (loinonnli again,"
snld nn old man In awosttlcken tones
jcstclday ovenlng as ho garni at tho
water flowing through stiects which
twenty four hours before had rung with
Infamous icvclry And for n moment
it wemed ixisslblc that the water had
deliberately sopght out that quarter of
the city wlilch Is devoted to tho tratllo
of shame Instead of fire fiom Heaven
It was water from tho depths. Fitecl
on which tho paleness, of terror made
( osmetic blotches stand out in hideous
gatlshncss peeled from upper story
windows at tho boats which piled up
and down Uiu stieet. A few bloolft
ownya little bund of Salvation At my
people were singlue and praying with
i.v en more than their accustomed est.
Through tho gathoilng. darkness tho
sounds of their hymns wcro carried
across tho water to tho ears of thetor-lor-strlcken
women who stayed in their
old haunts because lliey had no where
else to go.
Yesterday morning tho spot where
now n waste ot asphalt replaces tho
tranquil flow of 1'cnnsylvanla Hlvcr
was n favorlto parade ground for tho
bicjcllst. As his wheel went dashing'
thiough tho water It cast up a spray
wlilch sparkled merrily In tho suu
uliitic. The surroundiugs wcro In every
way calculated to add to tho picturesque
noon of the ride, and a number of young
men wcro disporting thomselvcs before
the admlrinc eyes of tho crowd. One
of them Was a eoloicd youth, who was
gotten up in cxqlsito style. His tlsht
liltiiig blockings and hi ccchcs showed
tho contour of his legs Jn a way which
plainly was most gratify lug to his soul.
Ills spotless flannel shirt and his
jaunty bicycle cap completed an outfit
which made him the oblcct of a gen
eral stare. Ho passed through tho
water w lth graceful ease, tho very slow
ness of his progress scrv ing to empha
size lils skill in handling tho machine.
Suddenly tho wheel caught In tho car
track; thcio was a confusion of spottass
shirt, jaunty cap and symmetrical lees,
followed by n splash in tho water. For
n moment the bicycle nud its rider were
lost to view. When tho young mail re
appeared ho was but u faint reminder of
his former self. Wet, slimy and dis
heveled, he looked tho very picture of
dlspalr. Ho didn't loso his head, how
ever, hut remounted his blcyclo and
lodoout of tlmwotcr amid the gleeful
applause of tho spectators on both sides
of the street.
Ono Incident of tho flood, which Is
attracting ery general attention, was
tho rcscuo of several comparative
strangers 111 Washington from a com
paratively perilous position. Tho
strangers, all men f prominence, by
tho way, were socinetuo sights of the
National Capital. They had strayed
iBouth of Pennsylvania avenue and were
enjoying themselves. somewhere so com
pletely that they forgot how tho hours
parsed. Daylight eamo andthey found
themselves cut off from tho world. Tho

They must hall a boat juid get down by

loud booming lo.ir In the vnlley above
llic'iu. They looked In the direction of
the sound nnd were nlmo't trnnsfkod
with horror to sea two miles abovo them
n huge, black wall of water, at least lot)
feet Hi height, rushing down tho valley
Ono look the fcar-stiickcn men gave
the nw ful sight and then thoy madpn
rush for tho locomotive, at the simo
timo giving tho nlnrm to tho sleeping
brakemeu In tho caboose with loud
cries, but with no avail. It was Impos
slblo to aid them further, however, sn
they cut tho engine looso from tho train
and the cngiiicer.wlth ono wild wrench,
threw Ilia lever wide open and they
wcro awny on a mad raco for life. For
a moment It seemed that, they would
not receive momentum enough to keep
nhoad of the flood, and tliny cast ono
despairing glance back. Then they
could seo the awful dclugo appronchhi"
in Its might. On Itviamc, rolling una
roaring like Bomo Titanic monster,
tbssincr nnd toaiiuir houses, sheds and
trees in its awtul speed as If they weio
mere toys. As they looked they saw
tlio two brakemeu rush out of the cab,
but they had not tlmo to zathcr the
slightest idea of the cause of their doom
before they, the car and signal tower
wcro tossed high in tho air to disappear
forever in engulfing water.
Then, with a shudder, as if at last It
comprehended Its peril, the engine
leaped forward llko n thing of Ufa and
speeded down the valley. But fast as
dt went, tho flood gained upon them.
nope, However, was in tuc ascendant,
for If they could hut get nciosstho

impossible. Bnginecr Bcnnelt then re

for their lives up tho hlllsldo as tho

The Philadelphia Timet' concspond

Close on to 2.000 icsldenees Ho in

that, houses that, wcro situated at Wood

and carried from the lower end as far as

The Wnrnlnc Ww Old.
Mr. Grouse, proprietor of tho South
Fork Fishing Club Hotel, says that
when the dam at Concmaugu Lake
biokc tho water seemed to leap, scarcely
touching tlio gioutul. It bounded d6wn
the valley, Clashing and roaring, cairy
ing every thing before It. For a. ndlo fts
front jscomed llko a solid wall twenty
feet high. Tho warning given tho
stricken city was sent fiom South Fork
Vlllogo by Ficight Agent Dccheit.
When tho great wajl that held the body
of water began to crumble nt tho lop he
sent a message begging tlio people for
God's sake to tako to tho hills. H
loports no serious accidents at South
Fork, lttclitml Davis ran to Prospect
Hill vvhen tho water raised. As to Mr.
Dcclieit's message ha says just such
havo been sent duwn at each flood slnco
the lake was made. Tho warning so
often proved useless that little attention
was paid to it this time.
Cambria Will IluUil Again.
The following statement was seut to
tho Jlaj or by those most largely Inter-,
estcd In tho Cambria Iron Company :i
" i jio assets ot tno company aro louna
largely beyond Johnstown proper.
In their mining and cokeing operations
and their furnaces nt Johnstown, the
rolling mill And tho wire works known
as the Gautler department, nud thoaoll
Ing mills nil havu doubtless suffered.
"Tlio heavy machinery of tha rolling
mills leads to the belief that, though
crippled, these mills aio not entirely
destroyed. Tho company has no debts
of any kind, bonded or floatlngclthcr
for materials ov labor, except current
dally expenses, wlilch no doubUwcro on
the uvo of being paid when tho disaster
came, we nave no moitgago oi any
kjud and as stated no bonded or float
Lig obligations for materials or other
w isc. Whatever the loss at Johnstown
may haye been, as soon as the moment
conies to deal with It, tho structures
will rise again whether in that district
or elsewhere. Tho giont loss which
the Cambria suffers is iu tho loss of
ofllccrs, men and Women who hovo do

thousand feet abovo tho felly of Johns;
town. As explained by A young lady
in this city who spent last summer at
the club-house, Concmauch Lake nud
neatly all the surrounding land be
longed to tho club, which wn a closo
corporation of Pittsburg rich men,
about 100, and mnny of whom nro
Standard Oil millionaires. James Suy
dam of Plttsbuig was president of the
club last summer.
Although all the,uii;nbcrs were very
rich men, tho rlub was not a wealthy
oigaulzatlon, being in dobt to n,consld
erable extent on account of Improve
ments which It has recently nude, and
It has all along been unlucky. LaH
year was tho most prosperous lu tho
hislorv of the club; Its house was full
and all tho cottages for tent nt Cone
iimugh Lake were taken and It was
thought the troubles of the oiganlzntlon
weionton cmL But scarlet fever broke
out In the middle of the summer and
everybody left at opce.
There wn sixteen cottages at Cone
maugh Lake, belonging to members of
the club and clustered about tho, club
house, which was about a quarter of a
mllo from tho fatal dam. Tho cottages
were all now, having been erected
within tho past live o"r six years, ele
gantly furnished, nnd costing many
thousand dollars apiece. The chili
houso, which was a three-story Ouccn
Anno structure, furnished with billiard
tables, plauo nnd containing a largo
dinlug-ioom nud- nearly two hundred
rooms for guests, cot over 150,000,
The cottagers took their meals nt the
club and nooody was allowed In tho
building or at the lake who was not u
Member or Introduced by a member.
Tho tlnm was originally built somo
thirty years ago by Ihu Pennsylvania
uautu uoinpiiiy, nut never useu uy
them, and it vyns, peihaps, tho largest
in tho world, being eighty feet high,
nearly ns Ihlch at tlio base, 1,000 feet
In length aud twenty feet wmo at tho
top, across which tan tha stage road to,
tho club house. Some ten years ago
the South Fork Fishing nnd Hunting'
Club was formed and it bought the
dam, which had Ieen abandoned, pay
ing only n smoll part of Its cost. Tho
club had tho structure examined by
competent engineers, ami, .while it never
was consldccd unsafe, they advised
that it bo strengthened and reinforced
by buttressed of now masonry at the
base. When.lliis was done the water1
was shut off nud it took two years for
tho lake to fill, although fed by a couple
ot active running streams.
From time to time slnco then the dam
has been regularly examined by engl
neeis of the Pennsylvania llallroad,
and one of the leading members bf the
club, Chester Albro, who sailed for Eu
rope last week, a competent civil engi
neer, also frequently examined the
structure. But nobody ever saW a
weakness In the dam, which was built
of tho heaviest kind of masonry.
Thp menace to all the towuB iu the
vnlloy of this vast body of water, held
buck by n slnglo wall, was apparent to
all, and tho question was frcfiucntiy
asked: "What If tho dam should,
burst?" only to bo answered by tho
statement that it was the strongest
i structure of the kind In existence, nnd
equal to Its work.
Tho overflow from Conomaugh Lake
rati through a sluice on tho left sldo of
tbo great dam, but it is pot knoivn that
tho Sub over kept a watchman to regu
late it. The nearest building to tills
sluice was the farm-house of Colonel
Uuger, proprietor of Old Monongahela
House, at Pittsburg, and this was only
nbout twenty yards distant from tho
dam. It was occupied by fanners
through tho winter, vtho must have
realized tho danger "when tho water
began to rise. Now thaUthe lako has
dlsaiincarcdt it is believed that tho club
,1s ruined nnd that no attempt will be1
mado to rebuild tho dhm, which would
entail cnoimous ovpense, oven should
the inhabitants of, tho Conomaugh Val
ley consent to sucli apioccedtng, which
is not likely. Tho club-houso and lis
surrounding cottages aio left stranded
high nnd dry nules away irom tho
nearest running water, which is at tho
bottom of tho valley, once covered by
thc-lako and 100 feet below.

The 'Programme for this Week
Two of our characteristic
sales will hold attention.
The $15 suit offering in
the Men's Department on
the third door is a step in
advance or anything we've
ever had before.
Here it is the first of June
only just the time you
want light clothing in pat
tern and weight and we
offer you One Hundred dit
lerent styles of the nattiest
designs that have been pro
duced for many a day at
Made to order and where
in would they be better?
you'll pay, anyhow, $35 per
suit, maybe more. Ready
made if you'll find them at
all they'll not be less than
20 or $25 per suit, but
just now, when you can put
them right on,' with us they
are."I5' AH sizes, all cuts
of sacks and cutaways and
made to fit not passably
well but PERFECTLY.
The other sale is in the
Children's Department, on
the second floor. A whole
complete stock driven down
By that we mean every short-pint,
tvyo-piece suit from $7.50 to $ 5 h is
been reduced to $4,80. Not some, but
EVERY ONE. There are some $8
ones and, some three-piece ones but
from $7.50 to 1,5 EVERY ONE.
Not the raisings and scrapings from
everywhere, but "weather-delayed"
stock that ought to bo in your service
doing duty Instead of on our coun
ters, so we're trying the reduction
plan. As soon as they catch your eye
you'll see they are in weight and col
oring essentially suits for NOW.,
That makes the bargain double a bar
gain. Sizes from 4 to 14 years. Seventy-five
different styles strong, and
five days left to buy them in until
300 to 308 SEVENTH STREET.
