JoaxsTOWif, Pa., June 14. The remnant
of citisens interested in Johnstown's future
assembled in nuus meeting yesterday after
noon. Adjt Gen. Hastings took the initia
tive In the matter, and called on the business
men to meet with him at hi headquarters In
the Pennsylvania freight depot. (Jon. Hast

"I have called this meeting of interested

What He Will Do ror Them.
He then outlined his plan for clearing
away the vast accumulation of debris from
the streets; whether the state would author
ize him to go further and clean out the cel
lars of private citisens and business bouses
he was unable to state. Tbe geueral assured
his listeners that this work would progress
as vigorously as possibla He then urged the
business men to look ahead to a prompt re
sumption of business. "If there are among
you business men here assembled any who
desire to open business, and will indicate to
me what will be neceswary to assist to that
end, I will communicate with tbe proper peo
ple in order to see if we can't get you what
is needed to put you on your feet again."
rienty to Eat.
He assured his listeners that there was ni
necessity for any one now in the valley t
feel hunger or go shelterless, as the organiza
tion for supplies, clothing, etc., is as near
perfect as is possible, and if any one suffers
from any cause it is their own fault. The
general urged the necessity of their reorgan
izing their municipal government, tbe meet
ing of tbe city council and appointment of a
police for the protection of private interests
that tbe military guard cannot undertake.
"I want you to go about your daily avoca
tions as you did formerly.
Helping Hands from Pittsburg.
"Pittsburg merchants are anxious to again
provide you with stocks to set you up in
business again and there are gentlemen in
this audience who have come here for the
purpose of taking yon by the band and saying
to you that if their aid is desired, they are
willing to trust you and wait upon you until
this charity can take some tangible shape.
Tbe lumber for your buildings will be sent
to you in train-loads entirely gratis."
Response of the Audience.
His speech was received with applause, and
men rushed forward to grasp his hand, tears
streaming from their eyes, speaking their
thanks with husky voices. illiam Cald
well, the oldest business man in the city, an
nounced that be had arranged to resume
business immediately. Many others followed
in brief talks, urging upon themselves united
action in all they did. It was then suggested
that CoL Linton prepare a set of resolutions
embodying the views of tbe business men of
the city. CoL Linton responded by saying
that his office, together with his pens, ink.
and paper, was by this time in the Mississippi
river, ana ne could not write resolutions or
any thing else.
William Searight, Gen. Hasting's stenog
rapher, stepped to the front, and CoL Linton
dictated the following.
Resolved. That the merchants and business
men of Johnstown, assembled here at the re
quest of ticn. Hastings, will each one use his
best efforts to restore by bis own actions the
condition of business and property of this
place prior to tbe flood.
Resolved. That this meeting tender its
heartiest thanks to Gen. Hastings for his
kindly suggestions to offer aid.
Tbe resolutions were unanimously
adopted. Forty -two business firms were rep
resented. Opening Stores for Runiaess.
Several store were opened during the day,
and were thronged with purchasers. Many
of the things purchased were for female
wear, which tbey have deprived themselves
of rather than accept them for nothing in a
crowd of scrambling men and boys. There
was system everywhere yesterday and a
great improvement is manifest. There is an
excess of clothing. Money and food is the
present great need.
Spoild Meat Arrives.
Two car-loads of fresh meat, delayed by
tbe way, were so badly spoiled when tbey
arrived that their precious contents bail to
be burned. Tbe donations of provisions can
not be too extensive.
Progress of the Contractors.
Tbe new contractors in charge of tbe state's
work in clearing out tbe flood debris from
Johnstown and vicinity did not have all tbe
men tbey needed, but the number was large
ly increase before night fall, and some very
effective work was performed. A regular
morgue corps of six men followed tbe work
ers in each district, and as fast as bodies were
uncovered, removed tbem to tbe nearest
dead-house, where they were quickly pre
pared for burial.
t Trouble Among the Workmen.
During tbe morning a crowd of worthless
loafers iu some manner secured an entrance
to the town and wanted to inaugurate a
strike among tbe workmen. Some of tbe
laborers were already dissatisfied at having
new bosses over them, and only wanted a
chance to complain. James McKnigbt, of
Pittsburg, one of the state contractors, got
wind of tbe trouble brewing and went among
the men and informed tbem that he would
bave no kicking, and that all those who
wished to quit would bave to do so immedi
ately, and about 100 of tbe men left.
Driven Away by the Troops.
Tbe loafers remained around and Mr. Me
Knigbt went to Gen. Hastings and demanded
protection for the men. A detachment of
militia from the Fourteenth regiment were
detailed to the place and they drove away
all tbe men wbo refused to work. This
caused Gen. Hastings to issue an order to tbe
soldiers not to admit any one to Johnstown
proper without an order.
Italian Laborers Coming.
A telegram from New York was received
at noon stating that 1,000 Italians were en
route from that place to Johnstown to work
on the wreck. This was very welcome news
to tbe con tractors, who are about convinced
that they will get very little work out of the
men now on the ground.
Buying Groceries for Rellos.
Work was oommenced yesterday morning
on a large frame building which will be owtd
temporarily as tbe Cambria Iron company's
tor and meat market. It Is
about eighty feet square. The old

Harri sbcro, Pa., June 14. The $1,000,

The Came of the Armagh Horror The
Death-Roll Reaches Seventy-Five.
Loxdo, June 14. The terrible railway
accident at Armagh is the prevailing topic
everywhere, and people stand aghast as they
listen to or read tbe details, which now make
it the mo-it destructive to life that ever oc
curred in the United Kingdom. Tbe dead
now number seventy-five, and contrary to
the report at first, comparatively few are
children, most of tbe victims being young
people of 20 years of age, or thereabouts.
Somebody Frightfully Blundered.
It now seems certain that the coaches which
were wracked were deliberately detached
from tbe train, and that this was done while
tbe cars 'vere standing on a very steep grade.
Stones vere gathered from the side of the
track and placed under the wheels of tbe de
tached coaches, and these stones were ex
pected to prevent their sliding down the steep
incline to destruction Just who was responsi
ble for this crude device is not clear,
but tbe investigation which has leen set on
foot will undoubtedly place the responsibil
ity for t'jis idiotic makeshift where it be
longs. Tbe plan seems to bave len to drag
up the incline as many cars as the engine
was equal to and then return for the others,
but the cars bad scarcely begun to move
when the weight of the others forced the
loose stores from under the wheels and the
doomed coaches started off ou their fearful
journey c own the incline.
A Relief Fund Started.
The cle-gymen of Armagh of every relig
ious denomination met yesterday and organ
ized a relief fund for the sufferers by
Wednesday's railroad accident The Protest
ant prinutte presided. The Roman Catholic

The Trouble the Outgrowth of Encroach
ments an Indian Lands.
Mora, Minn., June 14. Tbe present
trouble is the outgrowth of encroachment by
tbe whites upon the Mille Lacs' reservation.
Recently a contract was awarded by the set
tlers to Foley Bros., of St Paul, to dig a
ditch for irrigating purposes from Mille Lacs
lake to a point on the Smoke river near this
place. When the Indians learned a ditch
was to be dug they at once came to the con
clusion that the intention was to drain the
lake and deprive them of their fishing priv
ileges. Notice was served by the Indians
upon the contractors, warning them that if
they did not leave the territory they would
be put to death. The contractors gave no
heed to the warning, but came here and en
gaged bOO Swede laborers, who tiegan work
yesterday morning at Mille Lacs.
The Attack on the Workmen
About noon they were attacked by a party
of about 400 Chippewas, led by White Snake
and Great Bear. The Indians were in full
war-paint, and were armed with Winchester
rifles and tomahawks. As soon as they saw

shovels and fled toward this place. Tbey
were pursued by the savages, who shot and
killed seven men.

Alleged Miraculous Cures.
Yesterday, when Miss Parks, of Philadel
phia, was carried into the church she was a
twitching, helpless woman. Her ailment
was epilepsy. Father Mollinger told her
that iu three days she would be entirely
cured. She arose from her couch and
walked away with scarcely any perceptible
evidence of her sickness. A lady from New
York was led into the church totally blind.
She walked from the edifice alone and un
aided, and could distinguish many objects.
The power of speech was restored to a lady
who bas not spoken a word for two years.
A young girl hobbled up to tbe rail on
crutches. Father Mollinger prescribed for

crutches from ber, and she walked away.

faulted in almost every instance of his being
tbe custodian of funds intrusted to him for
specific objects. Tbe judge, seeing that

authorities tbat a woman may have been di
rectly concerned in the affair.
