Johnstown, P., Juno 7. Eight thou
tnnd men have been at work hero today
clearing out Uio debris, but truth compels
tho statement that tho undertaking hits
not yet been (airly startcil. Tin's nre
burning up and down thn valley of the
Conoraaugu as fur ns tho eyo can reach.
The air is thick with smoke, and yet to
I-eople familiar with the situation tho ef
forts of this nriuy of earnest toilers is
linrdly appreciable. Wm. Flynn, inoiiutod
on a weary-looking steed, is riding up and
down tho city directing tho foremen in
tiieir labors, and hi executive ability is
telling its own story. Something like svs-
tcm is being established, but tho most
careful estimates are to tho effect that It
will tako 10,000 men for weeks to clear out
the heaps of ruins piled up for milei bo
tween tho hills up und down tho course of
Thcro is a belief with many peoplo that
uowpnr rcitortvre live chielly in a world
of fiction. Could every person who reads
thews lines sea tho frightful sights that
bavo confronted tho iiioiiiIkts of the press
hero during tho last week they would all
unito in declaring that only a small or
tion of tho story had been told. Human
fancy cannot conceive the horrors of tho
'situation. This report Is being written
from the second story of a building worth
IKxnibly fifteen dollars, which commands
a view of tho mountain wreck at tho
bridge. The stench that is w afted through
the doorloss and wludowless structure by
every pausing breczo Is sickening, An
hour ago tho writer completed a tour of
tho mighty wreck fu this vicinity
in company with Arthur Kirk, the
millionaire oil man who is looking after
the work of opening up thn river
rnnnnel chiefly by the uo of dynamite.
Heicn of human being) and nniuul wen
to le seni on tho suil'.ieo, charred and
blackened by the lire, and in such a statu
of decomposition that tho strongest man
could no more than glance at lliein. Mr.
Kirk, who ! a man of "iron nerve (tnd a
trnnger to fear," declared that ho was
ick at heart and anxious to quit the aw
ful scene. In f.ict, whilo ho was talking
with tho reporter the chief of tho Sanitary
Cuinmilteo caino to him and Mid thai Iho
directors ought to lx) glad to have him
stay and carry on tho work. He will stay
to the lust, but hi tusk 1 an nwful one,
F.ighly-six men from Allooiia, under or
der of Iho sanitary olllciuls, aro scattering
disinfectants over Iho area of wreckage
that tho railroad bridges stopcd. Mr.
Kirk declares thai thousands of bo lici w ill
yet be found In this territory alone.
The great troublo thus fur experienced
at tho bridge ha Iteen canned by tho mass
of telegraph w ires that reach across tho
various spans through which Iho wster
lins passed. Lino repair men are badly
needed to help In removing Iho wires, and
Mr. Kirk says that as soon ns Ihry aru
gone ho will hustle tho debris through by
the aero. Tho Western t'nion telegraph
olllciuls liavo leen asked to send expo
rieurcd men hero to help in tho Work.
Tho problem of tho hour is Iho iliH.il of
tho debris above Iho Pennsylvania Kuil-
road bridge. Unlets it is soon got rid of
tho stench will be so overpowering that no
human being can withstand It.
Tho pneumonia scour go grows alarm
Ingly, notwithstanding tho statements of
r. tirolr, of tho Hato Hoard of health.
Dr. tweet, of Philadelphia, a prominent
member of Ir. GiofT's staff, ratuo down
from tho Cambria Hospital tonight with
startling report. 1'r. tirotf had retired
and no oniclul action could be taken. To
your corretondent lr. Pweet said:
"Prospect Hill is full of pneumonia, with
ditihllicria and measles. Tho hospital U
full to overllowlng, and today 1 attended
forty-two eases on the outside. They wiro
all most severe pneumonia. 1 here is every
condition needed for the spread of the
di-ouse and I fear an epidemic."
Ir. Carrington also reported sevenl
rases of pneumonia, having found them
on Iho hill near Mnrrcllvillu. r. Ku-c'l

Johnstown, Pa., Juno 7. "Are tho hor
rors of (he flood to givo way to tho terrors
of tho plague?" is tho question that is now
agitating tho valley of tho Conoinaugh.
Today opened warm and almost sultry,
and tho stench that assails one's senses ns
ho wanders through Johnstown i almost
overjiowcring. Sickness, in spito of tho
precautions and herculean labors of tho
sanitary authorities, is on tho increase and
tho fears of an epidemic grow with every
hour. "It is our impression," said Ir. T.
1 White, Assistant to tha 8tnto Hoard of
Health, this morning, "that there is goinj
to bo great sickness hero within tho next
week, l'ivo cases of malignant diphtheria
were located this morning on IWdiord
street, unci as they were indifferent homes
they mean live, starting points for tho dis
ease. All this talk about tho danger of
epidemic is not exaggerated, m mauy sup
pose, but is founded upon all experience.
There will bo plenty of typhoid (over and
kindred diseases here within awi-ck or ten
days, in my opinion.
"Tho only thing that has saved us thus
fur hits been the cold weather. That has
given place to summer weather and no ono
knows what tho next few days may bring
forth. Even among tha workmen and
attendants there is already diseertmblo a
great tendency to diarrhea and dysentery.
Tho men aro living principally on salt
moat and there is a hick of vegetables. I
have been here sinro Punduy, and havo
not tasted fresh meat but unco iu thai
time. I um only ono of tho many. Of
course tho worst has passed for tl.o phy
sicians, as our arrangements aro now per
fected una each corps will bo relieved from
time to time. Twenty more physicians
arrived from Pittsburg this morning and
many of us will bo relieved today. Cut
the opinion is general among the medical
men that there will bo more need for doc
tors in a week hence than there is now."

Tho property that is of uny value is ab

ror.Ti.AM, Ore., June 7. Following is
n cotiy ol tho f-.un rrunciscu jiniiim r
report of the great lire at Seattle:
The entire business portion of Seattle I
now nothing but smoking ruins. About 3
o'clock p.m. yesterday afternoon some
turpentine caught II ro in the bnsoiuent of
a two-story frame, building on tho south
west corner of Front und Madison streets.
Tho building, which wss owned by Mrs.
Margaret J. Pculens, nnd the llrst story,
whicli was leased by Iho Seatllo Shoe
Company, and tho upper lloor being occu
pied for ollices, was seen ublinu. An
alarm was instantly turned in and Iho
Volunteer Fire IVpartinent responded
promptly, hut it was Imp .snililo to. make
any headway ugaiust tlu lliinej. This
building, liko most of the others of its
kind in the business center, was not do
Inched, but was a comer ono of a row of
frame buildings all joined together und of
various bight. Vulliintly did the lire de
partment fight fire, but without avail, for
tho buildings of tinder were un onuy prey
to what, within ten minutes from the timo
it started, developed into a coullagru
lion. A'lioiiiing tliu llrst limldiiig wus
a wholesale liquor store, I'ioU Meyer,
nnd as toon a the fire reached the barrels
of liquor exploded with lerrillc reports and
scattered flaming timbers far und wide.
The lleiiny lllock, in which wus a whole
sale confetti uiery store: Gilmer x Co.'s
real estate ollire, und aeveral oilier otab
lishuiciits, including numU-rs of profes

were mhiii licked up completely. This
cleared out the entire touare. The eflorts

room propped up with substantial Immuiis,
but, while not dangerous under reasonable
strain, it is not calculated to support Ihu
large ntlendauce likely to bo attracted hero
by the iuiHrlaiit case now ix-nding. This
morning tho Sheriff created somewhat of
a birrie by announcing that notwithstand
ing the strengthening recently effected tho
court-room whs still weak. He recuui
mended all who had no particular Interest
in the proceedings not to larry there.
Whereupon Ijiwycr Juyne, of counsel for
the prisoner, usked how il would faro with
those who hud some Interest in the mut
ter. When the sist-iiil venire was called
it was found that forty-one out of lifly
were ut bund.
Tho strong force of lawyers oil either
side made a minute examination of each
man, nud up to this lime only seven ul
