Swollen, awful corpses lay there in piles of

Two of tho pasM'iigers on the train wero

quiet and digniliud and more or less self

tried hard to control hor feelings. "Ours

in the car knew the story of tho pair, and
many a pitying glance was cast at thuiu.
Their house was one of tho first to go.

and stood upon her frail support iu evident

Mmmudutwoor three bold strokes, and

As this dreadful news came from the on
poaito bank one poor woman yelled: "My

faint. Then the cries and shrinks from
tho passengers bocame more terrible, and
when the train stopped at iU destination
it was a sorry sight to mourning humanity
that left the cars. lcath was strewn all
along tho railroad from New Florenco to
Sang Hollow. Not 1cm than a dozen
bodies were picked up, while many others
were Been in the wreck, aud river,
strewn along the river banks. As the

crow eailod out into the middle of the

perched into the swift waters. The crow

The Number Will ) rrlntnljr Hearh This
Sanci Hollow, Fa., June 2, 1 a.m.
The first accounts sent out aro far below the
wildest estimates placed upon the extent
of tho calamity, and instead ot 2,000 or
3,000, it Is probable tho death list will
reach 8,000 ninny any 10,000. It ia now
known that two passenger trains, two
sections ol the day express on tho Penn
sylvania Kailrond, have been thrown into
tho maddened current and tho pRsscngora
drownod. These trains woro hold at
Johnstown from Friday at 11 o'clock a. ra.,
and were on a siding between the Johna
town and Conemaugh stations. The aw
ful torrent camo down the narrow delllo
between tho mountains, a distance of nine
miles, and (all of 300 foot in that dis
tance, sweeping away tho villogosof South
Fork, Mineral l'oint, Woodvalo and Cone
maugh, leaving but one building standing,
a woolen mill, where but an hour before
had stood hundreds, and dashing on with
the roar of a cataract and tho speed of the
wind iion the fair city at tho fixit-hllls,
The plane Iu which yesterday stood Johns
town is strewn with wreck. The great
Ihiutier stool works sat In this plane, and
the city below it, tho railroad tracks
bounding it at the bane ol the mountains
on the iiorlh. Hero the trains wore stand
ing when the tide of water, like a caU
pult, camo down ou them with such s
resistless force that the trains, locomo
tives, Pullmans ami all were over
turned mid swept down tho torrent, and
wore lodged against the gieat stone viaduct
along with fortytum locomotives from the
Johnstown round house, the heavy ma
chinery and iKiudcriiiis IntMio-woik of (ho
(iautier mill, tho accumulated debris ot
moie than a thoiis.iud houses, furniture,
bridges, lumber, drill anil human lutings.
The low arches of the stone viaduct choked
up immediately and the water backed back
over lha entire level ol tho valley uiNin
which tho city sUmhI, to the depth ot what,
from tho water works, indiuato about
thirty-eight feet. In this great sea thus
formed, hundreds, perhaps thousands of
I'Kori.K wsaa ntuuuolimi rou iiks.
The scene today is one of tho imait h .
rowing pmilile lor the imagination ol man
lo conceive. The accumulated drill girged
up at the viaduct to a bight of (ortv feet
ami then took lire from the upsetting of
stoves or lamps. As the II tinea crackled
and roarod among the drv tindiroftho
lloating houses hlimau bodies were seen
pinioned between tho liouso roots, loco
motives, Iron U'ams, freight, passenger,
Pullman, baggage cars and heavy mm
beams, tho greedy tlatnoe licking with
haute their diet ol human llenh. The
aceno was humble beyond description.

I he wanted figures of aire were burned
before Urn eyea ol the Itebohlers, aud no
rescue from such a fate was Hihlp.
Strong men turned aWay with agonizing
expressions, and women shrieked at the
horror ol the scene. Tho dead has been
computed at not lost than M.OoO, and the
number may exceed that eiimat. This
seems Incredible, but until the waters have
abated and tho work of removing the dead
Irom tins tremendous mass. It will be lm-
rxwaihla to tell how many lives have Ncn

waa the first man to cruaa to Johnstown

reached I'ouoiiiaiigh he liiimeibalely gatli
errtl together the remain p.weengera of
the Iwo trains snd had them conveyed to

ten mile, those survivor am now at

Ih terrible hm of hlu would have been
avoided. After the lieoi.le bad descried
the cars lha railroad oillciala statu the Iwo
I oilman cars attached lo the day riptca
were set on lire snd entirely consumed.
Siitrrintendent Trump fully confirms
the tciMiila already aout out alxiul Ihe ler
rihld ibsaxter In and near Johnstown. IU
says It will never be known exactly bow
many uvea wrrw loL, but III nuuiln-r Will
reach snioiig tl Ihonsuml. After pro
viding lor ih ps'iier who were sent
to F.tlonBburg, Bupt Trump made bia way
to lllairaville junction, a distance of nearly
twenty-five miles, walking most of the
way on the north bank of the Conemaugh
river. On reaching Illairsville Junction
be telegraphed the news of tho awful
calamity to his superior ollicorn. He do
scribes the devastation wrought hy tho
resistless flood at Johnstown as being
something awful to behold. The round
houso at Conemsugh was completely de
stroyed nnd a number of freight engines
wero washed down to tho stone bridge at
Johnstown. All ' the works east
of Johnstown hridgo aro completely
washed away. West of tlio bridge some
of the works remain, but they aro badly
damaged. Tho railroad track is entirely
washed awny between Conemaugh and
liridgo No. 6, a distance of about two and
a half mihs. 6upt Trump states that there
wiis a train load of provisions and groce
ries in tho company's yard nt Conemaugh
and tho cars wero broken open by tho cit
izens, and as a result they were well sup
plied against posaiblo want In conclud
ing his statement ho snvs that he could
give mnny more details oi tho horrors that
camo undor his observation, but he thinks
the ground has buun pretty well covered
by his dispatches. Alter concluding his
report Mr. Tramp returned to 1'ittnburg.
Tb Mood Prevail Thronghool Pena
ylvunlit, Maryland anil Virginia.
Dispatches to Tub Aitkal show that
tho terrible freshets are notconllnod to the
valleys ot the Conemaugh and Juniata,
hut the Susquehanna, tho Allegheny and
the Monongabela, nnd all tributary
streams aro out of their banks, and the
greatest damage is biting done. Iiridges
nro everywhere being washed away and
railroad tracks destroved.
Throughout Maryland the high waters
have also devastated everything in roach.
The Italtimore A Ohio rond ha sustained
such injury that tlm track cannot be re
paired in a month. Tho lower portions ot
Wiwhington are submerged.
In Virginia tho rivers are all out of their
banks. Kichmond is victimed in tho low
parts and the James is on a boom. The
railroad bridgo at Petersburg has lieen
washed away. In tho western part of the
Htato the Shenandoah is up and washing
everything away. And this kind of news
comes Irom many places.
The National Cemetery to be Visited by
Under tho auspices ot local lodges of the

Natioual Cemetery will be conducted
today. Considerable interest is being
manifested and preparations on quite an
extensive scale have boon made. The
oration of tho day will be delivered by Mr.
T. K Kdgington, of this city. The usual
service will he carried out according to
tho ritual, and it is oxpoctod that hun

Special l)ltrb to The AppvaL
CiiAm.RsTo.f, a C, Juno 1. The visit
ors evidently banked on the prodigal
performance of tho home team yesterday
afternoon, for thoy put np Jones and
Spear again, with the expectation of leav
ing the City by the Sea with three seagull
sculps hanging to their belts. The disci
pline Inllictod ou tho Seagulls after yestor
day's game, however, seemed to have had
a wholesome effect, and tho result was one
of tho finest games of the season, aa the
scoro will show. It was business from
start to finish, and Uie locals only won by
hard playing, every inch of ground being
chattily contested see the error column.
The Chattanooga leavo hero tonight to
till engagements elsewhere, having won
two out of the four games they played.
