one, sot copperas or mercury, as it would
poison the water. It will be something
harmless. The solution will be stored in
tanks. If all works well we will commence
operations with the engine in the morning."
A fire engine left Pittsburg for Johnstown
last night to perform this work.
"Ihe most I fear," continued Dr. Lee,
"is that disease may break ont among the
weakened survivors in the infected district,
but so far the absence of mortality is won
derful tor the exposure endured."
A telegram from Johnstown last evening
said that several cases of malignant diph
theria had developed, bnt so far the dreaded
disease had not spread.
Wants tbe Surgeon General.
Continuing the doctor said: "I telegraphed
for Surgeon General Hamilton, of the
United States Marine Hospital Service, who
bad charge of the quarantine and supervis
ion of the yellow fever district of Florida,
to come on, as I want to confer with him. I
have also telegraphed to Dr. Probst. Secre
tary and executive officer of the State Board
of Health of Ohio, to meet me here as soon
as possible with a view of conferring with
him in regard to such sanitary precautions
as may be necessary along the Ohio, as the
people at Cincinnati and other points along
the river fear that the pollution from the
upper streams is going down to them, but
they should be assured to the contrary.
State Appropriation InshfQcient.
'The State appropriation for the work is
sot sufficient, unfortunately. In fact the
appropriation is very meager, but we rely
upon a full indorsement of the expenses
that may be necessary to incur in this great
emergency. I expected to be allowed a cer
tain amount of money to prosecute the work
proposed out of the funds in the bands of
tbe General Belief Committee here, but I
lave been disappointed. I met the mem
bers of the Executive Belief Committee
while in executive session a few minutes
ago. They say that inasmuch as the money
in their hands was given for the immediate
relief of sufferers, they do not feel like al
lowing any of it to be expended for any
other purpose. They considered they had
strained a point to send the boats up the
river to pull away the lodged wreckage and
dead bodies, as I requested. I have, how
ever, telegraphed to Governor Beaver to
B - place money in my hands."
THE PASSJSYSTEM.
The Ladies Find They Have to Adopt it at
Tbeir Church Headquarters Befa-
trees Cared For.
The work of the Ladies' Relief Committee at
the Second Presbyterian Church is still eolnir
on and snfferers and ref agrees are being cared
-lot and fed as fast as they arrive. The number
of people taken care of, however, is far below
."what had been expected, and the ladles are to
come extent quite disappointed. There is any
quantity of food and clothing at tbe church
awaiting the coming of the sufferers.
The committee are still pestered considera
bly by the vast hordes of sichtseers. who crowd
Into the vestibule of tbe church for no other
'reason than to witness the scenes of misery
that are depicted in the very appearance of the
refugees as they arrive. These people resort to
all sorts of excuses in order to gain admission
to the edifice, and then stand around in open
mouthed and well-affected horror, and succeed
most admirably in hampering the good work of
The committee.
Adopted the Pass System.
Yesterday the ladles hit upon a very happy
plan of keeplnc such people away. They have
adopted the pass system and have issued passes
to all people whose business brings them to tbe
church, and those not holding such passes are
sot admitted. Two policemen stand guard at
the gate and make every strancer tell his busi
Sess before he is allowed to enter.
Quite a number of people were received and
led yesterday, after which they were either
provided with shelter or forwarded to their
destinations. Among tbe refugees received
during the morning were Walter and Gilbert
"Wright, two brothers aged respectively 18 and
8 years. The elder of the two Is quite
an invalid and suffers considerably from
lnng trouble. In speaking of the escape
of his entire family he told quite x
graphic story. Ho said that the water had
been rising about their home all day on Friday,
andthatwbenitliadcot to a height of four
feet they commenced to move up stairs, and
were finally compelled to take to the attic
"When the break came they could see the
houses being sweDt past them, and soon after
their own house becan to rock. Then his
lathepmother, and four others eot out of the
ucmDuQwaau ww iciuj;e uu aniij
oof. He and a rirl named Grace then
tried to tret out. but something floated against
the window and thev found themselves prison
ers. The room soon began to fill with water
and be and, tbe Rirl were about giving up all
hope when something tore away the entire
Elde of the house, and thev got out on another
roof that floated down. Finally they came up
with the roof on which were his parents, whom
he joined, and later the entire party were
taken off in skiffs, and all are safe.
Kcfnffees Cared For.
The following refugees were cared for yes
terday: Charley Bracken, Conemaugh borough;
James Crossan, Conemaugh borough; Grace
and Pearl Slater; these two children have been
tent to J. P. Dlebl, Shaler township; William,
"Walter and Chester Homer, from Homers

A thank offering was received by the Ladies'
Committee yesterday. It read: "My boy has
been saved. Give tbis to some poor mother."
It was signed "A Mother." Inclosed in tbe
note was a 10 gold piece.
A family of Germans arrived yesterday who
could not speak any English. Mr. Oswald
Werner, of Penn avenue, took charge of them
and placed them in the Hotel Albemarle at his
own expense and will Care for them until such
time as they are ready to leave for Oregon,
where they are going.
Arrivals Last Klcht.
Last evening at 6 o'clock the following per
sons arrived at tne Second Presbyterian Church
from Johnstown, and were fed and given
clothing:
Mrs. Carrie Bean, of Johnstown, taken home
by one of the ladies of the committee; Harriett
Penrod, Johnstown, taken care of in the city;
Peter TJtzberger, Johnstown, bound for Antie
tam,Va,; John Metzgar.wif e and son, B. "V., and
daugbter.M. J.,sll of Johnstown, taken to Beatty

route to tbeir home.
There was also on the train the daughter of
Superintendent Fronheiser, of the Cambria
Iron Works. The young lady was conveyed to
this city on a stretcher, She having sustained a
fracture of the hip. She looked very cheerful,
although her face was pale and bore evidence
of intense suffering. Her mother is numbered
among tbe vast army of the lost, but the rest
of her family were saved.
Another interesting passenger was little
Johnnie Kane, a boy of apparently about 5
years of age.He and an older brother are all that
is left of a large family. The child was accom-
eanied by his uncle, who is taking him to his
ome in Canada.
21UEPHT SPEAKS OP J0HKST0WN.
The Worthy Worker for Temperance Has
Conflicting Emotions.
Francis Murphy, the temperance apostle, was
In the city yesterday on a short visit from Chi
cago. He just dropped into The Dispatch
office to make a subscription of 125 to the
Johnstown sufferers. Tears stood in Mr. Mur
phy's eyes as he mentioned the name Johns
town, and there were very few words that he
was able to speak about it. Mr. Murphy's son
Yv- 11 ...r ., x ir.. .,. ... .1... nt.i
V cago pacers, Robert's name and tbe names of
V sis family were given as among the dead.
"I don't want to say how I feel about it,"
staid Francis Murphy, telling the story yester
day, "but I couldn't believe Robert dead, and
yet you can think how I thanked God when I
came home and found nun and his family
eaveo."
Mr. Mnrohv was ereatlv affected bv t.hn
calamity at Johnstown, as anvone who knows I
lis sympathetic nature can readily believe. I
Sis son lost all his property by tbe flood.
'S CHOICE
OrMightyNearitastoWhat
You'll Drink.
BEER BEGINS TO PALL
Ob the Stomach and Tea and Coffee Aro Not
Much Better But Little Mod tu the Late
Solution No Reservoir Cleaning Con
templatedDeath la the Old Onkea
Bucket.
Complaint having been made that the depth
of water in tbe Hiland avenue reservoir has
been allowed to decrease, Mr. L. T. Denniston.
chief clerk, explains that some repairs have
been making at the engines, but that there
will be maintained a sufficient supply.
Superintendent Brown states that it will not
be necessary to clean tho basins as tho flood
deposited less sediment than is ordinarily the
case. The probable cause of this is that local
rains were not heavy and did not wash much
earth into the river and the immense rush
following the break of tbe South Fork dam
carried out its sediment with more than usual
rapidity. Although there is still a considerable
stage of water, the rivers are quite clear.
Onlvin Coffee.
But little water, comparatively, is being used
for drinking except when made into coffee and
tea. Many people are buying an extra supply
of ice and melting it for drinking, while others
drink from abandoned wells that ordinarily
Are Considered Poisonous.
Some sources of supply that are considered
comparatively pure are extensively patron
ized. Among them are tbe spring at Darling
ton's brewery on Rebecca street, Allegheny,
and one on the Chambers cstate,near Amersham
avenue, Sbadyside; one on the McKee prop
perty, near Forbes street and Coltart square;
one on M. K. Moorehead's place, Ellsworth
avenue, and tbe artesian well water near East
Park, Allegheny, slakes the thirst of many.
There is considerable grumbling by some who
have endeavored to tide over tbe water famine
by drinking beer. Beer is a mighty pleasant
drink to educated Dalates. but if you are
forced to drink it for a great length of time, it
has a tendency to make you feel as though
you'd as leave see tho amendment pass on
the ISth instant as not. It is said the
drink habit can bo cured by flavoring every
the victim eats with ardent spirts and giving
him tarn for his exclusive beverage for a con
siderable length of time. It is a remedy which
some topers would enjoy in its inception.
Safe ns Well Water.
The people of the Southside, who draw their
supply from the Monongahela, are in pretty
good shape, and it is probably as safe to drink
Allegheny river water as that of the wells in
thickly inhabited districts. If a census were
kept of typhoid fever in tbe large cities where
river water is used and in the Wages where
well water is drank, it would be
Proven Beyond Controversy
that tbe proportion of cases of fever is consid
erably greater in tbe latter than in the former.
Cesspools are usually less than one-third as
deep as wells, and the water in the latter can
not in most instances be anything else than
poisonous. They are abominations and sewer
age in cities is but little better.
it is difficult to tell just how long it will be
before Allegheny river water can be used
without suspicion. Much will depend on tbe
progress made in cleaning away the drift be
tween Johnstown and Freeport.
M'KEESPORT'S WOBK.
Contributions, Provisions and Clothing Be
ing Sent to Johnstown Dally More
Working Men to be Sent.
The people of McKcesport are still actively
at work raising f nnds and general relief for the
afflicted mountain city. The National Tube
Works and tbe W. Dewees Wood Company are j
arranging to send about 150 additional men to
assist the large force of workers already sent
out from there. The contributions ot these
two concerns, when fully considered, will, it is
said, go up into tbe thousands of dollars.
Yesterday Relief Committee No. lief t for the
city ot destruction. The car was filled to Its
utmost capacity with provisions and men's
clothing. Over 1,000 loaves of bread and a large
quantity of -cooked meats were included in the
load.
The tube works have arranged to provision
all their own men,and are paying them a regular
salary for working at Johnstown. The em
ployes ot the United States Iron and Tin Plate
Company have contributed 5535, and the Ver
sailles Council, Royal Arcanum, raised 1130.

IN THE MOTHER'S ARMS.
A Child Sleeps Peacefully While the Flood
Races All Around.
Mr. M. P. Garrigan returned from Johnstown
yesterday, and in a talk with a Dispatch re
porter described his visit to the devastated
region. About eight miles above Bolivar tbe
tram he was on was stopped In tbe woods, the
conductor putting off all that were without
passes through the lines. He found his rela
tives, and his cousin, Mr. John Hogan, related
the terrible experience through which he and
bis wife and child passed. They had already
fled into the second story when tbe waters from
the dam came down upon them. They saw one
house after another whirled down past them.
Then the livery stable across the street was
hurled upon the house they were in. Their
friends were drowned before their eyes. They
were thrown into the water, but .Mr. Hogan
managed to get wife and child to the eave of
the roof of the bouse tbey had been thrown
from. The wife held the child while the father,
with desperate strength, kept pushing off the
great logs crushing down upon them.
In tbis way, clinging to the eave, they floated
down for several squares. At last the roof
struck a house and lodged there. Remaining
thus for several hours, crying and beggingpit
eously for help, tbey were at last rescued. But
all through the hours of tbeir great peril, after
tbe roof bad lodged, tbe child sleptin its moth
er's arms as tranquilly as if it had been in a
cradle, instead of in the midst of a flood. Mrs.
Hogan was badly bruised. She has lost 15 of
her relatives, and this, together with the injur
ies she received, will keep her prostrated for
some time to come.
THE SOUTHSIDFS QUOTA.
Additional Contributions for the Flood Suf
ferers by tbe Residents Over the River.
Supplies valued at $3,000 and more than $1,000
in cash have been sent to Johnstown from tbe

members of the order and their families in
Johnstown.

Many Open Trenches for

NO FOREMEN AVAILABLE.
Plenty of Laborers Who Want Work, but
None of Them Competent to Act as Gang
Bosses Loss to Contractors and Dan
cer to the Public Is tbo Result.
The Johnstown disaster has crippled all the
building interests in this city. Nearly all the
work, particularly on the streets, has come to
a -standstill, and throughout tbe entire city
ditches and excavations have been left open,
and are a constant menace to belated pedestri
ans. This is mainly due to tbe fact that 'the
vast majority of laborers have been called off
and have been sent to Johnstown, and while
there are still hundreds of laborers in the city,
there are no foremen here competent to take
charge oT big gangs of men, and the work must
necessarily lie at a standstill. Particularly is
tbis true with the parties having in charge the
building of the various cable roads.
Will Cost Many Dollars.
The work is simply lying dormant 'and Is
costing its eontractors hundreds of dollars,
and will continue to do so as long as the thing
lasts. In addition to this there is a ditch al
most two miles in length, which has been made
for tbe laying of the SO-inch main of tbe Equi
table Gas Company. It is all open, and while
there are watchmen and red lanterns in abund
ance, still it is a source of constant terrdr to
the contractors and others, who fear that some
one may yet he seriously injured by falling in
A Dispatch reporter yesterday met James
Booth, of the firm of Booth & Flinn. They are
doubtless the largest contractors in the oity,
and consequently tbe heaviest losers. Mr.
Booth said: 'It has placed us in a very disa
greeable position and is of a great deal of ex
pense to us. It has taken all the qualified
loremen we had, fully 25 or SO of them.
This includes the Superintendent of the trac
tion force, and with but one exception all tbe
foremen who are at all familiar" with that class
of work. Our greatest trouble is to get men
who are capable ot acting as gang bosses. We
can get any number of men, but can get none
to take charge of them. Now, h,ere is our

the ditch lying open. All our men have stopped
work on the ditch and the men we had on the
Central Traction job; and besides these there
were three o four gangs of men on other
things. We had two gangs at work onWylle
avenue, one on High street and one on the
crusher on Sixth avenue. I hope to have a
gang of men at work on High street to-morrow,
and get that street in a sbape that will make it
passable. As to the Equitable ditch, we have
both gas and water mains on either side of us
there, and while we keep watchmen there all
tbe time, still we are fearful that somebody
will get hurt.

back here. I won't move them, however, until
I know that they can be spared. We are
pestered to death every day by the crowds of
men who want work, but we cannot use them.
There is any number of them who are willing
to volunteer for tbe $2 a day and grub, but they
seem to lose sight of the fact that tbey must
work when they get there.
"I learned to-day that one of our men was
injured very severely up there to-day. His
name is William O'Brien. He is a stranger
here, and has a wife and two children, whom
be wants to go to him. He is hurt severely, but
the firm are unable to locate his family, and he
has not sent the address."

Conflicting Telegrams Bring Down a Cora
mlttee From the Chicago Board
of Trade All is Now Harmony.
A committee of two gentlemen from the
Chicago Board of Trade arrived in Pittsburg
yesterday. Tbeir errand was to find out to
whom to turn over the money Taised
in Chicago for. the benefit of the Johns
town sufferers. It seems that conflicting tele
grams have been sent from here to Chicago
as to who is authorized to receive tbo
contributions. Chicago people became uneasy,
and it is feared that the work of raising money
received a temporary check. AboutS18,000had
been raised in Chicago, and this is beiug held
until the two gentlemen referred to make their
report. Before sending the committco the Chi
cago people had wired to Pittsburg, asking if
there was a conflict of Interests here. Tbey
had received a reply signed by William
McCreery and Mayor McCallin saying that
there was no conflict and that the money
should be sent to Treasurer Thompson. Not
withstanding this, they thought; it best to send
a committee. So the committee has been on
tbe ground, investigated the matter thoroughly,
found that there is no conflict, and will return
to Chicago to-day and make a report, advising
just what the telegram of Messrs. McCreerv
and McCallin advised.
There has been in the Belief Committee all
the time entire harmony and the greatest con
fidence in tbe men in the field. Moreover, an
Interchange of telegrams yesterday between
GovernorBeaver and the committee resulted
in a satisfactory understanding. Governor
Beaver expressed his entire confidence in the
committee, his unqualified approval of their
work, and stated that hereafter he would work
through them.
IT GOT HERE AT 1AST.
There Must be a Rip Tan Winkle Some
where Between Here and New York.
Thepostofflceemployesstrucksomethingyes
terday as puzzling as a "nixie." It was a
stained newspaper, or had been a newspaper
once, and looked as though it had been struck
by the late flood somewhere. It was addressed
to "Robert Marshall, 8 Hazel street." It was
sent out as usual, but in the afternoon tbe car
rier brought it back with the report that Rob
ert Marshall had moved from Hazel street in
1879. Superintendent Larkiu, of the Carriers'
Division, examined the paper, and found it to
be a copy of the New York JSzpress, now Mail
and Exprcti, dated June, 28, 1879. The princi
pal news in it was the account of the death of
tbe French Prince Imperial in Zululand, where
he was serving in the British army.
Where tbe paper has been for the last ten
years is a mystery. The Eastern mails are
coming in so irregularly and over so many lines
that it is impossible to find what pouch the
paper was taken from. Mr. Marshall was
traced to Lowry street, in the Twenty-third
ward, and to-day the postofilce employes will
endeavor to bunt up bis- location after he re
moved from that street.
GENEROUS KBIGHTS
Of Pythias Want to Care for the Widows
and Orphans of Johnstown.
Last night Great Western Lodge No. 345,
Knights of Pythias, met and sent J50'to the
Grand Lodge for the Johnstown sufferers. The
lodge determined to take care of all members,
their widows and orphans who may come to
Pittsburg. Brother Knights Heber McDowell,
B. F. Harris, John Kellend, Joseph Rodgers
and William H. Harris were appointed a com
mittee to visit the hospitals and the Second
Presbyterian Church to hunt for persons need
ing assistance.
They request all destitute Knights or mem
bers of a Knight's family in Pittsburg to com
municate with Heber McDowell, Chairman of
tbe committee, at the Coroner's office; B. F.
Harris,Secretary of tbe commlttee.at tbe Phila
delphia Company's office, or with Joseph Mc
Aleer. scribe of the lodge, care of James
McKibben & Co.. Fountain street.
Plenty of Military Tents at Harrlsburg.
Captain E. Y, Breck is moved to remark in
view of the call of Mr. S. S. Marvin, for all per
sons and clubs having tents to report to him at
theCbamberof Commerce, that there are A,, wall
and hospital tents, tent flies and stable tents
for horses in abundance at Harrlsburg, and
asks why they cannot be sent to Johnstown.
Captain Breck also states that there is an
abundance of stores at Harrlsburg for the use
of tbe N. G, P., and that tbey might as well be
utilized.
These tents might be erected on the hills
near the work, ana by the addition of some
straw, an army of workmen might be comfortably-accommodated,
and their cooking could be
done on the stoves which are intended for that
purpose at well as for warmth. -

Returnlns From Johnstown Fall of Strange
Experiences Flour of Little
Use, It Is Said.
A good many Plttsburgers who went to
Johnstown immediately after the catastrophe
to aid the survivors have returned. Among
these is Mr, Joseph Home, Jr. He shotted1
signs of having endured a good many hardships
in the desolated town, and he told not a few
stories of the misery there. He laid particular
stress upon the present needs of Johnstown.
He said; "I do not think they need any more
laboring men in Johnstown, but they do need
men of businessabllltyand experience in finan
cial matters. Such men are needed to superin-
rtend the work ot cleaning tbe town and of dis-
mouiing supplies. Anoiaer uung wnicu im
pressed itseii upon, me was tne necessity ior
shaping tbe supplies to the real needs of Johns
town. It is utterly useless to ship flour there,
and yet there is a great deal of flour on its way.
There is enough clothing already on the scene
at Johnstown to fit out all Cambria county. A
good deal of the clothing, however, is not fit to
be distributed. Tramps would refuse to wear
it."
Oliver S. Richardson, Esq.. of the Pittsburg
bar, reappeared in Pittsburg yesterday. He
went up to Johnstown on Saturday and worked
there on tbe relief department until Thursday.
Edward Carpenter, Esq., another lawyer, also
carried barrels of bread and other eatables
from tbe relief. trains Into Johnstown, and re
turned to Pittsburg early in the week.
WEEE NOT HTOGABIAM
Captain Jones Found Two Americans Pilfer
Inc and Prevented a Lynching
Work of Cleaning Up.
"The Hungarians of Johnstown.are tbe most
abused people on the face of the earth," says
Captain W. B. Jones, superintendent of Car
negie's works at Braddock. "The only cases of
pilfering that came under my notice were two
in which native Americans were the offenders.
One of them had picked up a few articles of
trifling value from a ruined house, and I had
the greatest difficulty In preventing his being
lynched by an infuriated mob. Tbe Hungari
ans who formed a large part of my relief corps
worked faithfully and intelligently. Joseph
Wolf, a Hungarian citizen of Braddock, gave
1,000 ont of his own pocket."
Captain Jones was a pioneer in the work of
cleaning up the wreck of the ruined city, with
a force of 160 men, paid by tbe firm' be repre
sents, he began himself tbe work which Booth
and Flinn are now conducting. He states that
the contributions ,of the Carnegie firm, in
money, wages of employes and private gifts of
members of the concern amount to over
$30,000. He believes that it will take until
July 1 to even roughly clean up the devastated
city, and that it is best at once to saturate tbe
jam at tbe viaduct with petroleum and burn
it. The danger of future floods, in his opinion,
should be averted by widening and deepening
tho channel of the river.
A Flood Refugee Mysteriously Disappears.
A young woman named Maggie Kelly, one of
tbe Johnstown sufferers, came to Pittsburg on
Monday, and through the efforts of one ot the
relief committees, was secured a position as
domestic in a highly respectable family. She
bad a trunk with her and after being installed
in her new home the trunk was placed in her
room. On Tuesday night the young lady left
the house and has not been heard of by the
family since.
AT THE HOSPITALS.
Another Demented Victim All the Others
Doing Well.
Mrs. Annlo Daily, one of tbe Johnstown ref
ugees brought to the Mercy Hospital early yes
terday morning, has become demented from
tbe loss of her only son, making four now in
tbe hospital in the same condition. Tbe other
patients in tbe different hospitals are all doing
well, and no more were received until the train
arrived at about 2 o'clock this morning.

A Meeting nt Salisbury Hall Where the W.
C. T. V. Ladles Attended.
The Southside organization of the Anti
Prohibition Society held their third meeting
last night in Salisbury Hall. The place was
filled to its utmost capacity, and several very
good speeches were made in the interest of the
anti-prohibition cause.
Mr. Jacob Kline presided and he introduced
Frank Gesner as the first speaker, who enter
tained his audience for over an hour.
Mr. Gesner spoke of the fact that wine had
even been used at tbe Lord's Supper, and an
excitement was caused when someone asked
whether anybody got drunk, but order was
restored.
Lieutenant C. W. Wilhelm. a German jour
nalist, also addressed the meeting.
A delegation of eight members of the South
side W. C. T. U. occupied front seats in the
hall and listened attentively to the proceed
ings, but offered no interruptions.
They were the only women In tbe audience.

There is an old saying that the proof of
the pudding lies in the eating. The best
proof of the excellence of the famous "Iron
City Brand" of floury made by "Whitmyre) &

the bakers of Allegheny county are gradu
ally adopting its use on account of its solid
qualities. Give it a trial.
