Johnstown, Ta., Juno 10. Another
wot and closo luoruiug in this vulloy.
When day broke the scene was diHiiml to
depressing degree, a penetrating drizzle
came down and tnndo everything net and
ulyipery. Tho thousands of men moved
to tlielr places ol work in a ball unwilling
manner that argued poorly for a heavy
day's work. When tho whistln of tho
Cambria shops sounded at 7 o'clock this
morning tho whole pluco,was awuko, and
tho suioko from tho muny camp llrus and
burning debris mado a hodvy cloud that
rested over tho entire valley, almost hiding
it from view from the hills. Boon tho
valley was alive with its thousands of busy
workmen and the tenth day of woikon
this vast undertaking was begun. There
is littlo chitngo in tiie general situation
here today and all thu various depart'
incuts are moving alung in a man
ner very satisfactory . to tho parties
in charge. Tho stopping of work by
thu Cambria Company ycstcrtluy gnvu
their ineu a much needed rest, and they
went to work with much more vigor than
tho men employed on tho general work.
Tho sumo largo crowds wero on baud fur
their daily rations and the various- com
nilssnry stations were tho scenes of great
- activity. Tho great quantity of debris
which bus been loosened from above the
Mono bridge, and flouted down stream,
line formed a gorgo opposite Cumbria
City, und a numlier of men were seut
there today to remove this, as it cbokod
tho cbanuel, stopping tho How of water
and rendering very ilitUcuit tho work of
removing tho wreckage ut thostouo bridge.
Another consignment of stationary en
gines arrived today, making ten in all now
hero. These are most useful appliances
and do tho work of twenty men in remov
ing tho heavy timber. Tliey wuro placed
in various sections of tho town and did
oiosi efleclivo work. One was put in po
sition on tho stono bridge and in two hours
tho work accomplished by it was more el
Jectivo than tho work of 100 men for the
lost two days. Pm heavy timbers that
have defied the cllorts of the men to re
move were soon gotten rid of and the
channel owned for a considerable distanco
from tho bridge. The erection of a dyna
mo by ttio VYcalinghouM! Klectric Company
near the Pennsylvania lull I road freight
depot is a most nccc'Wy work and one
which has tramped around in tho dark
will sppreciate the lighting of tho town
luitt night. In fart every means of con
venienco and applinnco for speeding the
work is being used ben, and each day
nets mora work aceomplisncsl than tho duv
before. The visit of iov. Heaver to this
section yesterday has given renewed hote
to tho stricken people, and on all sides
tho action taken yealorduy Is being favor
ably cumuicutl on. All agree in saying
tho ac;ion taken yesterday was tnost
proper, and will result in great good to
tho people in this scc.iou ouJ stimulate
Tiiul this action mi?lit h.ive taken pliico

done all unfavorable comments on tho
movements of tho Coventor have given
place to a heavy rs-siiiiiiucndulion of tho
Jirnpowd cause, and all is harmony, good

this valley. Tho prompt and edit live ac

one great object the relief of tho suf

JoiiNnowx, l'a., June 10. The progress
of thu work ut tho stone brldgo today has
been more sutiMfactory than any day so
far. Moro work bus Um-o do.io in remov

tluco other days. The stationary engine

muko twenty-four doing excellent work.
Tho largo force of men heretofore employed
at this point have been tukon to other
points, nud a small forco of men with the
aid of tho engine is doing moro effective
work. A heavy chiirgo ot uvniuuuo was
put oft today nud did a great tloul of good,
mora than any three charges tioretotoro
fired, it demonstrated that heavy charges
must be used iu order to do any good.
Three bodios were found lying close to
gether today near tho stone bridge, and
tun or twulvo others wero loum: in mat
vicinity. All the commiMary stations
lire kept busy us usual. At the Cum
bria station a vast amount of provisions
nud clothes have been dmtribuh'd.
1-ong lines of sufferer stood in tho

every department is under tho strictest

A vast amount of work has been dono
by tho l'cniifylviinia Itailroad Company,
and thev aro now able to reach Mineral
