throughout the State, consequently

Charleston is making preparations
for an Inter-State Drill next fall.
About $5,000 in prizes will be dis
tributed. It promises to be a great
success. The Manning Guards must
work up, and bear off some of the
prizes. They can do it if they will go
to work with a will.
Is it out of the question for Man
ning to get up a cotton factory and a
cotton seed oil mill? How would it do
to combine a cotton seed oil mill, a
cotton gin, and a canning factory?
It will benefit the town and country.
We need new life, new enterprises:
let's boom up the county.
We have heard a rumor that Capt.
J. A. McClure may move his planing
machine to Manning. We hope there
is more than rumor in it, and that
Capt. McClure will be induced to lo
cate his planing mills here.' Manning
needs all such improvements, and our
citizens will gladly welcome them
Chicago and the whole country has
been interested for some time in the
murder of one Dr. Cronin, a promi
nent Irishman of that'city. The facts
of the case so far as known are that
the doctor was murdered because he
charged those who had the care of
funds for the Irish cause with misap
propriating them. To elude the con
sequences of their acts it was deter
mined that he should be killed.
A subscription list for a canning
factory is being circulated, and a con
.siderable part of the stock has been
taken. It is proposed to place the
capital stock at $5,000, divided .into
two hundred shares of $25 -each.
Such factories are said to pay very
han ml' Lage quai of
ny ways. Let our people take ho
of it right. Let the people from tl
country take most of the stock, own
controlling interest, and with busine
men at the management, it will be
blessing to the county.

The farmers of the South have at

WORSE THAN WAR.
Thousands of Human Lives Lost with
Scarcely a Moment's Warning.
JoHxsTow , PA., June 2.-The financial
loss by the great flood will be 40 millions of
dollars. This is the conservative estimate
made to-day by a body of business men, and
it is not one dollar too high. As the water
recedes the great loss can be more clearly
MoRiE THAN 5000 LIVES LOST.
It is now estimated from a careful survey
of the flooded district that at least three
thousand dwellings were carried away. Two
representatives of the Press News Associa
tion who have been at the scene of the dis
aster for the past two days made extraordi
nary efforts to determine as near as pesi
ble the actual loss of life. Inquiries were of
course made in every possible place, and
from any person who could give any in.
formation, but the task was an exceedingly
difficult one. The lowest estimate formed
was that 5,000 persons have perished, while
the estimates of many place the figures at
several thousand in excess of this number.
It is simply impossible at this time to de
termine anything like a correct estimate of
the loss of life beyond the fact that thous
ands are known to have perished.
The Allegheney River, into which the
Canemaugh empties, has been almost over
flowing its banks for the past three days.
The Ohio is also high, and bodies of the
victims which were not rescued before
reaching the Allegheney, will probably not
be, unless they are picked up away down
the Ohio River.
25,000 DESTITUTE PEOPLE.
There are at least 25,000 pe-pie here who
will have to be provided with provisions
donated for at least a week. So far there
has been envugh sent in, but the greatest
difficulty experienced is in distributing it.
swIFT JtsTiCE METED OUT.
Vengeance is swift here now. Two Hun
garians were caught to-day a few miles down
the river. Each had his pocket filled with
finger rings, and other articles which they
had stolen from the dead bodies. They
were lynched. Both were left hanging to a
tree. No attempt is being made to ascer
tain who did it. An old farmer walked into
town this afternoon with a shotgun on his
shoulder. He said he had fired upon and
probably killed a thief down the river who
was robbing a body.
soME VEPY SAD scExEs.
The sad scenes will never all be written.
One lady told this morning of seeing her
mother crushed to pieces just before her
eyes, and the mangled body carried down
the stream. William Varnes lost six chil
dren, and saved a babe about 18 months
old. Jis wife died three weeks ago. An
aged German, his wife and five daughters,
floated down on their house eight miles,
where the house was wrecked. The daugh

4 east of the town is a reservoir owned by
o "rich fishing elub. It is the largest reser
s voir in the United States, being three and a
e half miles long and from one to one and a
Its depth in some places is 100 feet;. It
- holds more water than any other reservoir,
natural or artificial, in the United States.
The lake hasi been quadrupled in size by
artinicial means and was held in check by
-a dam from 700 to 1,000 feet wide. It is
90 feet in thickness at the base and the
height is 110 feet. The top has a breadth
s of over 20 feet. Recognizing the menace
which the lake had to the region below,
the South Fork club had the dam inspected

in th na re o acod burst must
have been the culmination of the struggle
of water against the embankment.
1The difficulty of obtaining definite in
formation added tremendously to the ex
c itement and apprehension. The course of
the torrent from the broken danm at the foot
of the lake to Johnstown is almost eighteen
miles, and with the exception of one loculi
ty, the water passed through a narrow V
shaped valley. Four miles below the dam
lay the town of South Fork, where the
South Fork itself empties in the Conemaugh
river. The town contained about 2,000 in
habitants. It has not been heard from, but
it is said that four-fifths of it has been
swept away. Fonr miles further down the
Conemaugh river was the town of Mineral
Point. It had 800 inhabitants, 90) per cent.
of the houses being on a flat close to the
river. It seems impossible at this time to
hope that any of them have escaped. Six
miles further down was the town of Cone
maugh, and here alone was there a topo
graphical possibility of the spreading of the
flood and the breaking of its force.
Over Two Hundred Drowned.
GREESBUBG, May 31.-The latest reports
plaethe nmber of drowned at 200. Over
500 persons were caught by the raging wa
ters and carried upon the drift. Those res
cued were carried for a distance of ten to
twenty miles. Great excitement exists
throughout the western portion of the State.
It is impossible to reach Johnston by
either rail or wire to-night.
S,000) Lives Lost.,
SOxG HOLLOw, PA., June 1.-The first re
ports cf the loss of life were entirely too
low. It is believed that fully 8,000 persons
have perished. Of these 700 or 800 were
burned in the fiery furnace at the viaduct.
Two thousand coffins have been ordered for~
the botties alheady rescued.
The Flood in the James River.
LYi.CHBUno, VA., June 2.-The flood an
the James river is subsiding. Great dana
age has been done to the crops along the
line of the river, and manufacturing estab
lishments in this city were flooded and had
'to suspend operation.
Great Damiage Through New York.
Eianns N. Y., June 2.-Startling news,
involving the serious loss of life and de
struction of millions of dollars worth of
property, is being received here from the
whole section of country between this city,j
Olean, Arrsville, Hornellsville, and Addi-!

equal to the present floods devastation has
ever been experience~d. A report from
Corning says that twelve people wem'

10,000 to 12,000-The Work of Burial
and Relief-The Wrecked City.
JoHNsTowN, PA., June 3.-The full extent
of the Johnstown flood and holocaust can
never be realized except by those who are
called upon to witness the horrible scenes,
which seem to multiply rather than dimin
ish. Even conservative estimates to-day
put the number of dead from ten to twelve
thousand, while there is good reason to
suppose that it may reach fifteen thousand,
or even more. In the Adams Street school
house alone over two thousand bodies have
been laid out. A body is on every desk.
The clothes on every cropse are rank with
filth and dirt, and the dirty faces are spotted
with black, slimy mud.
This morning the peculiar stench of de
caying human flesh is plainly perceptible to
the senses as one ascends the bank of Stony
Creek for half a mile along the smoulder
ing ruins of the wreck, and the most skep
tical now conceive the worst and realize that
hundreds, aye, perhaps thousands of bodies
lie charred and blackened beneath the great
/searchers wander wearily over the smok
ing mass, and as occasionally a sudden
shout comes over the waters the patient
watchers on the hill realize that another
ghastly discovery has been added to that
long list of revelations that chills every
heart and draws tears to the eyes of the
watchers. From the banks many charred
remains of victims of the flames and flood
are plainly visible to the naked eye as the
receding waters reluctantly give up their
dead. Beneath almost every log or black
ened beam a glistening skull or blanched
remnants of ribs or limbs mark all that re
mains of life's hopes and dreams. The
streets are one sickening, foul-smelling mass
of wood and debris, and the work of search
ing for bodies has only fairly begun. The
latest estimates put
trE LOSS OF LIFE AT FROM ll),000 TO 12,000..
It is impossible to get any account of the
number lost, every one is so thoroughly tired
out and overcome by the weight of the dis
aster as to be utterly unable to give any ac
eurate details or figures. The work of
identifying the dead goes on very slowly
and comparatively few so far have been

there was a sound like tremendous and con.

earth were shot up into mid-aix

wave started down the ravine. A farmer
who escaped said that the water did not
come dgwn like a wave, but jumped on his
house and beat it to fragments in an in

wife and two children were killed.
At the present time the lake looks like a
cross between the crater of a volcano and a
huge mud puddle, with stumps of trees arnd
rock scattered over it. There is a' small
stream of muddy water running through the
centre of the lake site. The break in the
dam is about two hundred feet wide and
there is but a small portion of the dam left
on either side. No damage was done to any
of the buildings belonging to the fishing
club. There are but one or two small streams
showing here and there in the lake.
Washington Under Water.
WAsHINGTON, June 2.-The bright- warm
sun shone forth pleasantly in a clear sky
here to-day and the northwestern and more
fashionable part of the city never looked
more lovely. But along a good part of the
principal business thoroughfare, Pennsyl
vania avenue, and in adjacent streets to the
southward, there was a dreary waste of tur
bid, muddy water that washed five or six
feet deep the sides of houses, filling cellars
and basements and causing great inconven
