Is the Story Told by a
P. R. R. Civil

ISFICUL TELEGBAX TO TRZ DISPATCH.
Buffalo, June 5. James Pcraberton Smith,
son of T. Gmlford Smith, 'the wealthy ;coal
merchant, is a civil engineer employed by the
Pennsylvania Railroad. On Friday, when the
disaster occurred, ho was at Johnstown, stop
ping at the Merchants' Hotel. "What happened
he described this evening as follows: "In the
afternoon, with four associates, we spent
time plavinf checkers in the hotel, the streets
being flooded. At 430 we were startled by a
shrill whistle. Thinking a fire was the cause,
we looked out of the windotr. Great masses of
people were rushing through the water in the
street, which bad been there all day, and still
v e thought the alarm was fire.
"All of a sudden the roar of the water burst
upon our ears, and in an instant more the
streets were filled with debris, great houses and
business blocks began to topple and crack and
go down as if they were toy block houses. Peo
ple in the streets were drowning on all sides.
One of our company started downstairs and,
alas! was drowned. The other four, including
myself, started upstairs, for the water was fast
As If by Music. .
"When we got on the roof we could see whole
blocks swept away, as if by magic Hundreds j
of people were floating by, clinging to roots of
houses, rafts, timbers or anything they could
get a hold of.
"The hotel began to tremble, and we made
our way to an adjoining roof. Soon afterward
.part of the hotel went down. The bnck
structures seemed to fare woise than frame
buildings, as the latter would float, and the
brick would crush and crumble Into one mass
"Wc finally climbed into a room of the last
building mentioned, and temained there all
night, in company with 116 other people, among
the number being a crazy man. His wife nd
family had all been drowned only a few hours
before, and he was raving maniac,
"And what a night! SlecpT Yes, I did a little;
but every now and then a building nearby
would crash in, and we would all jump, fearing
that at last our time had come.
"Finally, morning came. In company with
one of my associates, we climbed across
the tops of houses, built a raft and
poled ourselves ashore to the hillside.
I don't know how the others escaped. This
was 7 o'clock Saturday morning. We started
on foot lor South Fork, arriving there at 3 P.

telegraph and railroads were cut off by the
flood, and we had naught to do but retrace our

"The worst sight of all was to see this great

fairly curdle to think of It! I could see the
lurid flames shoot heavenward all night Fri

people were floating right toward them
on tops of houses, ettL, and to meet
a worse death than drowning. To look
at a sight like this, and not be able to render a
particle of assistance, seemed awful. I had a
narrow escape, truly.
"In my mind I can still hear the shrieks of"
men, women and children, the maniac's ravings
and the wild roar of a sea of water sweeping
everything before it!"
AK0THEE HUN SHOT D0WJT.
Tho Crooka Continue to Rob Both the Dead
fFBOK A STAFF CDUBESPOJfDEXT.l
Johnstown, June 5. The toughs were
saving a high time again in Oambria City this
morning. Complaints came into headquarters
from several parties during the morning
stating that crooks were plying their game of
pilfering in the ruined houses of that city and
stealing watches and jewelry at every place.
The Chief of Police Committee is
authority for a story about another Hun
being shot there The man was caught
in the act of emptying a bureau drawer of a
purse of money and several gold and silver
.watches, and one of the guards who saw him
ftroni a distance noticed him run away. Heat
once gave chase and called after him for the
fellow to stop. But the thief refused to heed
the command and the more the policeman
shouted after him tne harder he ran. A num
ber of private citizens joined in the chase and
tlie affair became very exciting. The Hun was
fleet-footed, and it looked at one time as if he
was to get away because be suddenly dis
appeared out of sight behind a ruined building.
But the policeman, his gun loaded, continued
close at the heels of the fngitive. Suddenly
the man appeared again in the clearing making
for the hills as fast as his feet would carrv
.him. "Jfow stop or I shoot," shouted the offi
cer, out m vain, inen tne guard stood suit,
lifted his gun and in the next moment the Hun
lay on the ground. The policeman and citizens
soon reached the spot to find the fellow in the
grass with a bullet in his breast. They never
took any notice of the man's wound, but they
emptied bis pockets, finding Jewelry, several
watches and a roll of money. Then they rolled
the body ipto the river and left the place. An
other report of stealing was made to Director
J. B. Scott, and he at once issued an order for a
company of military to march to Cambria and
snppress anything in the shape of robbery.
"Don't make much fuss with the fellows," said
Air. Scott. "Shoot them if they do not leave
the things alone." Heixkicus.

Johnstown, June 5. Johnstown is generous
in its misery. Whatever it has left it gives
freely to strangers who have come here.. It is
not much, but shows a good spirit. There are
means by which Johnstown people could
reap a rich harvest by taking ad
vantage of the necessities of strangers.
It is necessary, for instance, to use boats a good
deal in going about, and men in light skiffs are
poling about the streets all day, taking passen
gers from place to place, Tneir services are
free. They not only do not, but will not, ac
cept any fee.
J. D. Haws & Son own large brick kilns near
the- bridge. The newspaper men have taken
possession of one of the firm's buildings, and
one of the firm spends most of his time in
running about trying to make them comfort
able. A room in one of the
Barns, Filled With Straw,
has been set apart solely for the newspaper
men, who sleep there, wrapped up Jn blankets,
as comfortable as in beds. There Is no charge
for this, although those who have tried one
nigjit on the floors, sand piles, and other usual
dormitories of the place, would willingly pay
high for the use of the straw.
Food for the newspaper and telegraph work
ers has been hard to get, except in canned form
canned comed beef eaten with a stick fork
and dry crackers, were the staple to yesterday,
when a bouse up the hill was discovered where
an body who came was welcome to the best
that the house afforded. The Dispatch staff
promptly bad its first square meal since getting
here. There was no sugar for the coffee, no
vinegar lor the lettuce and the apple-butter ran
out before the siege was raised, but the defect
was in the circumstances of Johnstown and not
in the will of the family.
"How much?" was asked at the end of the
They were poor people. The man probably
earns a dollar a da v.
"Oh," replied the woman, who was herself

times like these. You see, I went out and
spent 510 for groceries at a place that wasn't
washed away, right after the flood; so we have
been living on that ever since. Of course, we
don't ask any of the relief, not being washed
out. You men are welcome to all I can give."
She had seen the last of her S10 worth of pro
visions gobbled up without a murmur, and jet
didn't charge anything in times like these.
Her scruples did not, however, extend so far as
refusing tenders or coin, inasmuch as without
it her larder w ould stay empty. She filled it
up last night, and, the news of the place hav
ing spread, she has been getting a continual
meal from 5 in the morning until late at night
without making a charge, yet her income
would make a tegular restaurant keeper dizzy.

Johnstown, June 5. The story of the
calamity of the Conemaugh Valley will never
be told. Its magnitnde is too much for any
human conception, and details are so numerous
that no ordinary mind can grasp them all nor
have the time to record them in their trne
light. As the hours grow apace new horrors
are developed. As the great number of the
working force is increased the heartrending
scenes, the sickening sights and tb.6 appalling
incidents multiply. It seemed yesterday as if
the climax of the terrible tragedy had reached
its highest development. To-day the news
swept abroad that 100 bodies had been found
together within an area of as many square feet.
It was about 2 o'clock when the men of Booth
& Flinn, who were engaged to clean out a large
excavation which had been filled with a mass of
debris, suddenly struck the dead body of a
child. The tiny mortal had not occupied much
room. It was doubled up in a. sitting posture,
and the mau polled the little one from the
cradle of its death by himself without any
assistance. Quickly it was put upon a btretcher
by some oi the other workmen, ana tne searcn
It was not in vain. No snoner had the man
applied his shovel to the soil to throw out some
more debris when he touched another human
body. Quietly the man reached down to clear
the rubbish away and lay his And bare: but this
time he could not get out the body alone, and
he had to call for somebody's assistance. It
took a few minutes to complete the task, but
no wonder, because a little careful removal of
a few boards and stones revealed to the
workmen three corpses tightly clung together,
with the dust aud mud clinging to them. They
Unrecognizable Mass of Human Flesh
and bone; but before these three were placed
on a stretcher to be carried away two .more
were brought to light. "There are two more
people here," said one of thejnen to bis tore
man, who stood close by. The words brought
several more men to the spot, and the two dead
bodies were carried out into the light of the
sun. There were no more stretchers
handy now, aud as one of the
workmen was running to get one from
another gang Of diggers, a foreman stopped
"Hold on my man," he said, "let us lay these
two on the ground over here, perhaps there are
even more underneath the rubbish. '
The man did not kuow that his words were
really to be proven a fact, but like an echo to
the sound and to emphasize the truth of the
horrible prophecy another couple were hauled
ont of the excavation. Thus it continued, one
after another thev were hauled out and one
after another the dead were earned on to the
sand and laid out side by side. From moment
to moment the row grew in length and the
number of the corpses was multiplied.
But still the excavation was not emptied of
its human charge. There wero 39 bodies now
lying on the barren land around the debris, and
the men engaged in the sickening work of
hunting for the dead stopped. They were
overcome with the enormity of their task and
their nerves refused to act any longer.
An Enforced Panse.
The men stood back aud leaned against the
walls of the cavity from where the limbs of
human shape and form denoted that even
more were awaiting to be delivered from their
horrible resting place. These men who were
engaged in digging for dead bodies since last
Satnrday, who had hauled them out of the
premature graves by the dozen every day, and
who must have become used to even such a
sickening task even they recoiled they could
not go any iarcner.
Raid another: "Let mft rpt nnt of th! nlani ''
pleaded another, and so one after the other
laid down his tools and turned toward the exit
from the catacomb of the dead unfortunate.
"Who will take these men's places?" the
foreman quietly asked of his gang of workers.
The way in which he put the question made it
evident that he did not expect any volunteers,
but he was mistaken. The spirit which seems
to be imbued within the hearts of the majority
of the men who are at work here asserted
itself, and a number of men promptly stepped
We ean't leave those people down there,"
they said in their rough way, which however,
sounded like music to the ear of the foreman,
for he knew that it couveyeda spirit of willing
ness. Death Reigned There.
These bodies were unearthed in an exca
vation near the Johnstown Presbyterjan
Church. From some of the people who stood
around I learned that the house had withstood
the murderous waves for a longtime and a
large number of people had succeeded in mak
ing it a refuge until the roof broke in and its
occupants were buried beneath it. In the
Alma Hall,"another large building, whose ruins
cover a large territory, there were 17 bodies re
covered, of which 7 belonged to a family
named Fitzharris, the others have not been
identified yet except Frank O'DonnelL
Of the 60 bodies which were found near
the Presbyterian Church one was said to be the
corpse of Charles B. 'Hoffman, a boy 16 years of
age. His cousin, John Hoffman, from Altoona,
was standing in the morgue of the Presby
terian Church afterward where I saw him.
"This boy." he said, "is the first of my rela
tives who has been recovered, and there are 20
of us lost. God knows when and where the
other 19 will be found." Heeouciis.

CURED OF DYSPEPSIA AND
What hundreds of people say must be true,
and now Miss Mada Fritsch wishesto tell what
has been done for her. Her stomach had
caused her untold suffering and pain for years,
her appetite was poor, and she experienced
such a burning arid distressed feeling in her
stomach. Although she tried to be careful of
what kinds of food she ate, yet nothing wonld
remain on her stomach, for she would vomit up
her food regularly within half an hour after
eating. The catarrhal secretion that formed
in her head caused much pain over her eyes;
and she was almost constantly trying to raise
the tough, tenacious mucus that kept dropping
from ber head into her throat. Her bowels
were costive, and she was very nervous. She
began treatment with the physicians of the
Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute at S23 Penn
avenue on March 11, and on May 15 declared
herself cured. She says: "I wish to state to
the public and my many friends that I have
been cured of this dreadful disease, dyspepsia,
and gladlv recommend these physicians to
others suffering from these diseases. I here
by sign my name,
"MADA FRITSCH. Economy, Pa."
Catarrh is not only the cane of nine-tenths
of the consumption of this climate, but also of
deafness, loss of memory, confusion of thought
and loss of taste and smell. Sometimes the
disease ulcerates into the bones of the head or
nose, causing them to drop out. Frequently all
of the bones of the nose become removed as
the result of ulcerative catarrh.' While catarrh
has been said by many people, and even physi
cians, to be incurable, there is no disease that
the physicians of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia
Institute, at No. 323 Penn avenue, can cure
easier, as their hundreds of testimonials already
published aud on file prove.
