JOHNSTOWX, October 1& Notwithstand
ing the statements of members of the State
Commission that everythinj: is moving
along satisfactory here, snch is not the case.
"Within the past few days the general
opinion prevailed that everybody would be
paid on a percentage, and members of the
Board of Inquiry seemed to understand at
that way. This being denied, the people
were at a loss to understand anything about
the situation. So great has the dissatis
faction become that the Finance Committee
took cognizance of it to-day by requesting
the Board of Inquiry to mate a public state
ment of the condition of tbincs.
The letter concludes as follows: The time
has come when further delays must have ample
justification. Many cases are now arisinc dally
where people are obliged to make sacrifices
which wonfd be prevented if tbey could receive
the money which will be awarded to them, or
if they had any certain knowledge that such an
award would be made. "Will you kindly give
us official information on why the money is not
PLENTST Or liETTEKS.
The following was also addressed to the
To J. B. Kroner, Esq., Secretary of Flood Com
mission: Deak am By resolution of the Committee
on Finance, the Board of Inquiry has been re
quested to inswer the following matters: Have
you finished your labors for the final distribu
tion! What impediments, if any, are in the
wav of prompt distribution to classes i and 51
Will the money tie paid out in accordance with
your awards, or Is any further revision of the
schedules contemplated? The Interest in mat
ter of distribution Is so great and the delay in
this matter of a day or even an hour is now so
detrimental that it is due to the public that
full and official information should bo pub
lished. Will you kindly advise us in regard to
the following matters: What are the im-
Sediments, If any, to the immediate and final
istribution of the relief moneyr Has the
Bureau of Inquiry completed its labors? Will
the money be paid in accordance with awards
ot the Bureau of Inquiry, or will the schedules
be subject to changes or modifications? If so,
haw and upon what principle will these
changes be made, and who will make them, and
WHE2T WILI. THIS WOKE
be accomplished? An early reply will greatly
oblige. By order of the Committee on Finance.
Ctbus Elder, Secretary."
The committee of leading citizens who had
been appointed to inquire the excuse of the
delay have been Instructed thatif sufficient rea
sons are not given that they shall at once call a
public meeting to take action on the question.
It is stated that the Flood Commission will
f meet here next Tuesday.
The transfer and reinterment of the uniden
tified dead will begin next Monday and it is
suggested that those who have lost friends
whose bodies have not been identified that
they be present when the graves are opened,
when an opportunity will be given and all pos
sible clews furnished for identification.
A CASE FOR THE COROXER.
Tlio Charred Remain of an Unknown Alan
Fonnd at Chartlers.
rSrCCIAI. TXLKOBJJC TO THE DISFATCH.1
JIA5SFIEI.D, Pa, October 18. This after
noon at 3 o'clock the body of an unknown white
man was discovered in a draught hole at the
Vulcan Force and Iron Works of Long & Co.
at Chartlers by the millwright. The man was
probably SO years of age and S feet S inches in
height, with a black beard and mustache. The
whole body was cooked, and the face was
charred beyond recognition. His clothes were
not burned off, and he had no doubt suffocated
uy a ary neat.
Great trouble was experienced in removing
the body from the pit. The man was a stranger
and had probably been dead several days. How
he got there Is a mystery, bnt it is thonght he
Vasstranpand had crawled in there to sleep.
The finding of the body liaB caused great ex
citement. The Coroner has been notified.
A REGULAR OCCURRENCE.
Two More Murders Reported From tho
West Virginia Mining Region.
rSPKCIAI. TELEGBAM TO THE DIRrATCH.l
Wheeling, W. Va., October 18. Meager
accounts have been received here of the mur
ders committed Wednesday at Elkhora, in the
Wvoming county mining region. Moses Ben
nis, a Belgian miner, quarreled with his wife
late on Wednesday afternoon and shot ber
four times, death resulting in a very few
About the same hour and in the same com
munity a negro named Arthurs crushed his
wife's head with a stone. In each case the
husband charged the wife with unfaithfulness.
Both men aro in jail at BramweU.
A Theatrical Company la Trouble,
rsrzcxu. tkleqbax to the dispatcih
Beatxb Falls, October 18. The Agnes
Villa Company played at the Sixth Avenue
Theater last night, and then discovered that
their advance agent had left his. trunk here
and skipped out without warning. An investi
gation went to show that he had billed no
towns ahead of them, so tbey immediately can
called all engagements in the West and this
morning returned to Brooklyn to reorganize
and make a fresh start.
PUBLIC WORKS CLOSING.
Wnter Pipea and Sewers Poshed to Antici
pate Cold Weather.
As the 15th of November approaches the
works in progress on the various streets of
the city are being hurried up to avoid the
subsequent probable cold snaps interfering
1 with the business. Superintendent Brown,
of the Water Bureau, says there are now
only about 1,200 feet yet to lay of the 30
inch water main to Bunker's Hill strett,
and that will be completed by the date men
tioned unless some extraordinary impedi
ment in the shape of rocky formation or un
favorable weather should intervene. AH
the mains leading to the city will be con
nected with this giant pipe. The lG-inch
pipe on Penn avenue from Fifth to Home
wood is finished, and all the small pipe, 6
and 4-inch, contracted for, will be com
pleted next week.
The 15th of November is generally
thonght to be the limit nt which all the
streets must be closed up, as provided by
the ordinance, but the city bureaus are not
particular as to a week or so. Last winter,
which was an open one, unpaved streets on
the outskirts ofthe city were kept open for
sewer construction the whole season. On
the paved streets, however, the ordinance is
GROWTH OF LAUXDRIES.
Sixteen Concerns Dolog Soilness In the City
1 nt Prcscr'.
The election of Mr. C. H. Brace, of this
city, as one of the Vice Presidents of the
' Laundrymen's National Association, is an
other evidence of the great growth of the
laundry business in this city within the
past few years.
The first to engage in the Bteam laundry
business in this city was Charles Pfeifer, of
Allegheny City, who established a plant
about 13 years ago. Three years later
Brace Bros, removed here from Titusville
and entered the field. Following them
ctnie the Iron City Bteam Laundry, and
to-day there are 16 or, 17 laundries doing
In conversation with a representative of
the firm of Brace Brothers yesterday, the
agent stated that thousands of families of
this city instead of doing their own washing
give it to the steam laundries. The latter
hare demonstrated that they can do the work
better and cheaper than it can be done at
home. The laundries give employment to
between 475 and 500 young women and men.

A LUNATIC'S EBULLITION.
A Former Gas Producer Who Wants Aid
In manipulating Markets.
The appended communication, which evi
dently ought to have been postmarked
"Dixmont Insane Asylum," but for some
unaccountable reason Tvas not, has been
sent to this office, it must either have been
smuggled out of the asylum by one of the
slyest and most cunning lunatics, or have
been written outside of an insane institu
tion by some disingenuous knave, who
thought all he had to do to compel a news
paper to bull or bear a stock which he was
interested in manipulating, was to accuse
that ionrnal nf rfnimr what it never had
come anywhere near doing. The Dispatch
is a newspaper, and can't be cajoled or
coaxed into the fields of either bulls or bears
to suit any manipulator's purpose. See
what this one has to say:
Editor of the Dispatch, City:
Dear Sib Keep up your persistent buUing
of Natural Oat Shares; Keep on trying to
deceive the public to the end.
Gas is failing just so sure as the sun shines,
and all the newspaper bulling in existence
cannot resuscitate the fields from which the
leading companies of this city have been, and
are now, obtaining their supply. Thirty-six
(361 Inch mains may for a time meet the re
quirements, but the beginning of the end is
near and don't you for-getiL
Widows: Orphans; Butchers; Bakers and
Candle-stick makers, by either ignorant or
willful misrepresentation of the press of this
city, have been encouraged to invest In a class
of securities without an Intrinsic value. Keep
it up. Keep it vp. Tours truly.

Are our prices for our very finest Overcoats, 'such as we propose to sell
to gentlemen who have hitherto been accustomed to have their Over
coats made to order. Suppose a man pays 40 for an Overcoat made
by a merchant tailor, how much do you suppose he pays too much?
About J5i2l this being 7 extra profit to the tailor and $5 toward liqui
dating the accounts owing by those who NEVER PAY their tailors'
bills. Thus it will be seen a man who pays his tailor is "gouged" is the
most barefaced way. Come to us and we'll save you all this extra
money, give you as good goods and guarantee satisfaction in every way.
