THE -PETTSBTJKG DISPATCH THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 1889.
I; ACHATE LIST
"Of Johnstown's Business Men
- and Women in Full.
iIG INTERESTS INVOLVED.
Six Hundred and Thirteen Separate Bnsi.
neu Ettnbli.bmenti Were tn the Wreck
t ed Cill "t Prohlbltorr Citadel In
teresting Dedncllons Can be Drawn by
Comparison With Other Lists.
One of the most interesting features of the
Conemangh casualty is given below in the
publication of the names of Johnstown's busi
ness men and women. The appended list is
absolutely accurate, as its compilation was
completed one week pnor to the great disaster
by a mercantile institution ot this country
which is famous for the care taken in the task
of furnishing the business world with an ac
curate compendium of the business communi
ties of the country. The list will be of great
service to those who were personally or com
meicially interested in the mountain city, as
comparison with lists of survivors or dead will
enable the public to judge as to the fate of
friends or customers, or their escape from the
horrors that engulfed Johnstown.
In itself the list contains many points of in
terest There were 613 business establishments
in the devastated city and its suburbs. Many
were small, but a great number were of con
siderable dimensions, giving employment to
hundreds of operatives. Of saloons Johnstown
had iier share, in comparison with what the
Brooks law has done hereabouts. There were
110 less than 66 saloons in operation.
The Diversified Interests.
There were six regularly incorporated concerns
in the city exclusive of the Cambria Steel .
Works and the Gautier branch, having a
listed capital of $310,000; this bcinp exclusive of
banks. There were 95 groceries, 34 general
stores and over 50 drygoods houses, all of w hich
represented a large gross sum of capital in
vested. A local expert in the matter or estima
tion gives the opinion that the city of Johns
town represented a capital of 516,000,000. What
percentage of this large sum will be a total loss
will probably never be kndwn, as in many in
stances the most interested parties were swept
away at an identical time with their posses
sions. The list as vouched for by R. G. Dun fc Co.'s

Seeking Official Data.
The local representatives of the two leading
commercial agencies of America "Brad
street's" and R. G. Dun 4 Cc. are en
deavoring to secure data in regard to the
'financial losses in the Conemaugh Valley.
The editor or jBraojtreer telegraphed the
local representative, Mr. S. Jf . Dickey, that the
fullest information as to the extent of the dis
aster and the amount of loss was desired with
out loss of time, as the Quarterly Bradstrtet
w as ready to go to press, but was being held in
order to receive some accurate data for the in
formation of the trade at large. An
experienced man was accordingly sent to the
scene of devastation yesterday and will
make his report as soon as possible. By a pe
culiar geographical arrangement, Johnstown is
in the Philadelphia jurisdiction of BradstreeVt
and the local agent is not, therefore, fully in
formed, except in a general way, as to the mer
cantile standing of the citizens. Mr. Dickey
was asked whether the agency would gazette
the financial condition of Johnstown's mer
chants. "Oh. yes!" said Mr. Dickey, "we shall com
pile the facts as to each person's financial
standing with all possible speed. The trade at
large look to us for full information."
"But may not your statement of the financial
standing of the survivors of the flood inure to
their disadvantage before the individuals get a
chance to pull themselves together?"
Will Prevent Imposition!.
"(Jnthe contrary it will have a beneficial
effect, as it will prevent impositions or assump
tions of name and credit, occurrences which
may prove frequent judging by past affairs of
this nature, thongh not of this extent. Many
of those who survive and intend to carry
on business again when the city is rebuilt
will be the recipients of substantial
sympathy when the extent of their losses he
comes officially known. I must say that The
Dispatch's interviews with Pittsburg mer
chants, published this mornlnc, reflect most
favorably upon the sympathetic generosity of
those who had dealings with Johnstown men,
and I expect that the same feeling will govern
the trade generally in their treatment of losses
engendered bv the casualty."
Mr. A B. Wigley. local agent of R. Q. Dun
Co., attends to Johnstown and the whole
Conemaugh Valley with regard to the commer
cial standing of merchants and business houses.
He left for Johnstown early yesterday morn
ing, taking with him a duplicate list of that
published elsewhere this morning by The Dis
patch. It may take Mr. Wigley several days
to arrive at a thorough and detailed commer
cial idea of the wrecked city and its suburbs.
THE WATER SUPPLY.
A Plan to FnrnisU Families With Parer
Water by tbo Can Has Prohibition
Got a Practical Set-Back f
The trouble of obtaining palatable water is
stiU a perplexing one. Aside from the muddi
ness of the water people revolt at the idea of
drinking the washings of the Johnstown dis
trict. Never in the history of the city has so
little water been drank. Teetotalers have
given up their .scruples abont drinking only
tea and coftee and have taken to beer. The
saloons were packed yesterday. Many a man
drank his first glass of beer, and prohibition for
the time is given a set back. In one saloon a
well-known bainer;nan rushed in and said,
"I am a teetoti!r,-b-jt beer is preferable to disease-breeding
-wate, and I am sick of tea and
coffee, here goes."
Oatfce XarmoXJ. Jt ifruee, o-f the Crystal
.lake Ice Company, is a strong flowing artesian
well of pure water, and he invites' all residents
in the East Eud to como ana get all they want
of it. At the solicitation ot many of the resi
dents, he is now considering supplying all who
wish with puro water fromwacons in pails or
cans, for drinking purposes. Many people are
obtaining tbeir supply from distant wells now,
and all the outside sources of supply in or near
the city are being drawn upon.
LASHED TO A TEEE.
A Woman's Remains Wound Tightly to a
Westmoreland County Tree.
The Sanitary Corps sent ont by Westmore
land county to clear the banks of the river met
with some horrible sights. They found several
bodies of men and women in all sorts of places,
but the strangest case of all was that of a
woman who was tied to a tree near the river
bank with barb wire. The wire was wound
round and round and held the body so tight
that it withstood the awful rush of the water.
It is singular how the wire became wrapped
about the tree.
