THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W- POTTER.
Monday, June 24, 1889.
31 AY MEAN SOMETHING.
A Klver Road ta Aadalaaia aot Ina
paaalbie The Healy Coal I'lelda.
The Moline Dispatch of last Friday
had the following:
E. N. Healy, of Bedford. Iowa, is in the
city, stopping with bis relative, Josiab
Healy. Recently he and Jonathan Han
toon purchased 438 acres of coal mining
lands, and leased over 600 more on the
river about three miles this side of Illi
nois City. The gentlemen are satisfied
they have the best coal producing dis
trict tn this region. A paying vein three
feet tiick has been found fifty feet be
low the surface, within a radius of a
mile of the place, and at seventy feet a
thicker vein has been struck. The coal
resembles can Del. and is of superior
quality. The gas companies of Moline,
Rock Island and Davenport have tested
It, and And it well adapted for making
gas and coke. What is needed most to
assist in the development of the region is
And on Saturday the Muscatine Neie$
Tribune referred to the time subject in
the following language:
The tract was very extensive embrac
ing over a thousand acres, three-fifths of
which are leased ground, belonging to
different parlies residing in and near
Illinois City. Mr. Healy has been pros
pecting on the te..t ty off and on for a
number of years and is satisfied that it
will develop one of the best coal pro
ducing districts in this part of the coun
try. A goc i paying vein of coal, three
feet in thickness has been found fifty
feet below the surface within a radius
of a mile of the place and at a depth of
seventy feet a vein of even greater
thickness has been struck. The coal
is more compact, brittle and lighter
than the ordinary soft coal and resem
bles channel. Specimens from the vein
are pronounced by competent judges of
this fuel to be of a superior quality. The
gas companies of Davenport, Rock Isl
and and Moline and that of this city, we
understand, find it well adapted for their
purpose of making gas and coke and are
willing to buy it as soon as the mines are
opened and the coal placed on the mar
ket. Mr. II. has gone up the river with
the intention of opening several mines
which an agent of the Chicago, Milwau
kee & St. Paul road wishes to inspect in
a few days for a report to his company.
Those who have visited the point say that
the coal abounds in sufficiently large
quantities to insure a favorable report
being sent to the railroad company, and
this may lead to the building of an ex tens
slon of the Milwaukee down to the
Mtreet Hallway Convention.
There was a convention of electric
street railway officers and managers in
Davenport on Friday. There were about
a dozen representaves present from dif
ferent states, including W. R. Moore,
of Moline, and E. H. Ouyer, of Rock

1 Dynamiter The Physicians Declare That
the Dead Number 10,000.
I Johnstown, Pa., June 24 The-Pittsburg
members of the relief commission took a look
over tbe grounds yesterday. Tbey have
been not a little amused at tbe exaggerated
reports of losses caused to real and personal
property by the flood. A Pittsburg paper
yesterday publiHhed a statement that the
losses would run from $30,000,000 to $40,000,
000. This statement act tbe commission at
work figuring on the matter, and tbe result
Is summarised as follows:
t Half a Million for Farnitnre.
' "According to the estimate of James Mc
Millan, Cyrus Elder, and other leading busi
ness men of Johnstown the aggregate loss of
houses was about 1,800. This includes the
losses in the Conemaugh valley. In figuring
up what it requires to furnish a house in-
oluding all neot-wary articles, but of course
without throwing in any frills, it takes
about $50, exclusive of carpets. But for the
sake of argument and computat ion, let us
say tnai inese i.suu nouses would require
aw each to furnish them, or $:0,000. but
to give all the margin necessary let us call it
fauo.ooo. much for tbe furniture.
1 ft.OOO.OOO Figured for Hun.
j "Now the average cowt of replacing these
l.auu bouses wonld not lie over $2,000 each.
$3,600,000, and again to give a margin to
'these figures let us put this at $5,000,000,
plus the $500,000 for lows of furniture and
you have nearly whnt the aggregate cost of
the flood is. Of course these fiirures do not
include the losses of the Pennsylvania rail
road or the Cambria Iron company, but
we nave nothing to do with them.
) The Farts Are Bad Kuouh.
! From this it will be seen that the real
timat will not reach 25 per cent of the
amount published this morning. We very
much doubt if the assessed valuation of all
the property in Cambria county is $20,000,-
000; we will go further, we very much doubt
if Cambria county is worth $20,000,000. How
ever, it is bad enough, and the necessities of
the people must be looked to and alleviated
at the earliest possible moment. How is this
to be done? Let ns figure.
j The Wherewithal in Sight.
i "When Governor Beaver pays back to
Pittsburgh the $130,000 advanced from the
relief fund to pay off the laborers under the
volunteer system, Pittsburg will have about
$500,000 with which to go to work to relieve
the wants of the people. By relief now we
mean giving tbem bouses and fitting them
up for them. This is what we propose to do.
In addition to this $.500,000 there is probably
$600,000 in Philadelphia. Governor Beaver
has In his hands a like sum. Mayor Grant,
of New York, has over $:JO,000. The peo
pie of Johnstown themselves have $150,000,
and there are other large sums in the bands
iof tbe heads of municipalities throughout tbe
country which are available at any moment
a requisition is made for them.
! Plans for Rebuild Ins;.
i "Now, as to rebuilding and furnishing
houses for the people. Pittsburg has ordered
100 houses at $100 each with f urnishments at
$50 each. Governor Beaver has ordered 100
houses at $200 each, 100 others at $125 each,
and there will be 100 stores put up on the
public square at a cost of $250 each. The
cost of the erection and furnishing of these
houses will of course come out of the funds
already named. Now what will these build
ings aggregate? One hundred houses at $100
eaoe, will cost $10,000; their f urnishments
will cost $5,000 additional One hundred
houses ordered at $200 each will cost $20,000,
;with $5,000 more for their furniture; and 100
1)ouses at $'25 each, wih same furnishments,
I Cost of the Proposed Scheme.
i "This will make $57,000 for the erection
and furnishing of 300 houses. There yet re
mains 1,500 bouses to be supplied. To do this
;will cost $225,000, with $75,000 for furniture.
These figures show that it will cost about
$360,000 in round numbers to do this build
ing; but it will be found that a great many of
the citizens will want to put up their own
buildings, and this ef course will lighten up
'the expenses of the general relief committee
materially. But to be liberal let us
ay that tbe cost of completing this scheme
of rebuilding and furnishing houses will be
$500,000. We intend to carry it out on this
basis. Of course some people will not be
satisfied, but they must remember the cir
cumstances uuder which tbe work is being
done, and that we are trying to do the great
est good for the greatest number, and in tbe
end all will feel that we have been honest
and sincere in our efforts in their behalf,
i Cleaning the Streets of Debris.
I "We don't believe it will cost over $500,
000 to clean up the streets of tbe city. With
a force of 3,000 men at work it will require
not more than from ten to twelve weeks to
finish up the work. It will be seen by these
figures that the work of clearing up the
streets will fall far below $500,000, not for
getting to include in this the $120,000 put up
by the Pitbburg relief committee to jiay off
tbe volunteer force."
A DAY WITH THE WORKERS.
Awful Things Exposed by the Dynamite
Another Estimate of Dead.
Johnstown, Pa., June 24 Dynamiting
the wreck was vigorously continued Satur
day above tbe bridge. With every shot
bodies were found, but they were so much
decomposed that identification was almost
impossible. Tho body of a young lady, sup
posed to be tbe daughter of John Linton, was
recovered Saturday evening.
Horn to Instant Death.
One of tbe sad sights of the day waa the
recovery of the body of a woman and an in
fant lying closely together. The mother waa
badly burned and decomposed. The baby
had evidently been born in the water, and
was fairly well preserved, as the flames bad
not reached it The part of the mother's
head that bad escaped burning was almost
entirely eaten away by worms.
Fla-nre n 10.000 Dead.
The physicians take decided issue with tbe
recent estimates of loss of life during tbe
flood. At a meeting held Saturday by all
the physicians in the distriot, notes were
oom pared, and it was agreed unanimously
that not less than 10,000 perished during
those awful hours on Friday, May SI and
Erday, June L The physicians have first
opportunity for a correSt judgment,
ring everybody as they do, and some of
theni dulared with the amalority only in nut
ting the lost at 12,008.
Latent Report of Bodies Recovered.
Twenty-one bodies were recovered Satur
day. Two were identified as Miss Hannon
and Annie Lenhart, Four bodies were re
covered yesterday. The remains of two
women and a little girl were found in Stony
creek, and tbe remains of a Chinaman were
found m Kern villa. The body of one of the
women was identified by a letter found in
her pocket as the wife of Mr. Clark, a grocer,
in Johnstown. The child is believed to be
Mrs. Clark's daughter, as they ware found
lying close together.
Bad Use for Its Nine Uvea.
Saturday while a gang of men were at
work removing debris from a livery stable
near tbe Baltimore and Ohio depot they
beard a faint cry from a pile of wreckage
near by. 1 be men set to work to investigate,
and in half an hour they rescued a living
cat, which had erideutly been imprisoned
there aiuce the day of the flood. It was a
veritable skeleton, its neck being no thicker
than a man's finger. The feline was carried
to the Red Cross hospital, where it was
kindly cared for, and christened Red Cross
Flood. It will recover, and is attracting
The opening of the saloons resulted in much
turbulence, and Judge Johnston telegraphed

I3aturday morning a handsomely dressed

Chicago, June 24. An arrest was made
at Frankfort, Ind. .yesterday, which the police
officials of this city believe will prove a most
important one in the solution of the Cronin
murder mystery. Tbe prisoner is supposed
to be Patrick Cooney, alias "The Pox," who
has been anxiously sought for by the Chi
cago police as one of the murderers of Dr.
Cronin. Cooney is a member of Camp No.
20, Clan-na-Gael, and was known as one of
the most fanatical men in the clan. He was
a man of modest demeanor, however, quiet,
and unobstrusive, and as crafty as a fox,

was in the habit of singing, he gained the
The Identification of Cooney.
Cooney has been identified positively, it is
said, by the Carlsons from a photograph
taken of hiin in his Clan-na-Gael regimentals,
and also from one taken in a group, as one
of the men who rented the cottage in which
the assassination of Dr. Cronin took place.
He was also identified as the man Simons
who rented tbe rooms at 1 17 Clark street, and
who bought tbe furniture at Revell's, which
was afterward found in the Carlson cottage.
He it was who brought Martin Burke, the
fugitive, money whan Burke was stopping

for his flight to Winnipeg, en route for Ire

The Clan To Be Proscribed.

REMARKS FROM THE PULPIT.
What the Chicago Preaehers Are Saying
About the Case.
Chicago, June 24. Since tbe Cronin case
has been under investigation the clergymen
here have taken great interest in it and have
reforred to it frequently in their pulpits.
Yesterday a number of ministers had some
thing to say about it, and one, tbe Rev.
Robert Mclntyre, was applauded by his con
gregation, for which evidence of their ap
proval he administered a rebuke.
No Room for Foreign Quarrels.
Tbe reverend gentleman in the course of
his remarks said: "When we come to this
country we should leave our quarrels at
home. The American people are patient
and long-suffenng, but 1 think I see signs of
the old eagle becoming ruftW, and if he ever
sinks his talons into tbe back of these secret
political assassination clubs he will shake the
miserable life out of them and bury them in
a grave upon which will tie shoveled the
curses of the civilized world." This was the
sentiment that was applnu led.
Nor for Hyphenated Americans.
"There is no such thing as an Irish-Ameri
can or a British-American. Tbe terra is a
mongrcL It has no meaning. There is no
such thing. Tbe ideas are opposing and re
pel each other. Tbe two words linked to
gether are tbe Kilkenny cats over again.
British citizenship is based on monarchy,
while American citizenship is based on de
mocracy. I believe that tbe American citi
zenship is the highest on earth, and was
evolved from a lower order. When a man
says he is a British-American be is like a
buttarfiy who would say, "I am a catepillar-
butterfly,' or a bullfrog who would say, 'I
am a tadpole-bullfrog.' He virtually de
clares, 'I am what I used to be and what I
am now all at once.' We are Americans. We
cannot be British-Americans."
An Insult and an Outrace.
Bishop Fallows, of the Reformed Episcopal
eburch, bad this to say of the Clan-na-Gael:
"A band of foreign-born citizens has been
organized with oaths and pass-words to cre
ate trouble with a foreign power. The men
comprising it have virtually said: 'We are
Irishmen first and last and American citizens
intermediately.' This organization has held
supreme political control in our own city and
eiNewnere. i be very safety of tbe lives and
projierty of the people have been in its keep
ing. Revelations have been made in the ef
forts to find the assassins of Dr. Cronin,
proving that sucn was the intimate con
nection of the organization with his
murder and with other assassina
tions that indirectly at least it was re
sponsible for. It wonld be a positive un-
irum to say tnat tins organization was
brought into being to commit such Crimea
Good men, honest men were in it, who would
scorn tbese infamous dee-la But the secret
oath of tbe Clan-na-Gael was un- American
through and through. It has no right and
title to an existence on American soil. It is
an insult to American laws and an outrage
upon American manhood. It ought to be
smitten with a rod of iron and dashed in
pieces like a potter's vessel. Political onin
ion, reinforced by a strong and vigorously
executed law, should hasten its ignominious
A Reference to the Know-Nothinca.
"It would not be wise, however, to go to
the other extreme and begin anew the plan of
forming an American organization of native
born citizens exclusively to fill the offices of
the city, state, and nation. Suoh a society
would be as un-American as the Clan-na-Gael.
In tbe Revolutionary war some of the
ablest generals were foreigners. Charles
Lee was a Welshman, Gen. Gates was an
Englishman, Hugh Mercer, Arthur St
Clair, and John Paul Jones were Boo tollmen.
Kosciusko was a Pnlander, and Baron
Steuben and Gen. Lafayette were French
men. The war for the
Union arose because the Americans who

HOW HE WON THE CHICAGO DEEBT.
Poor Proctor Knott Comes In Last After
Leading f r a Mile An Egregious
Blonder of the Judges on the Last
Baee Gives the Money to the Losers,
and Nearly Batoea a Blot Kentncklans
Go Broke on Their Favorite.
Chic ago, June 24. There was a brilliant
gathering at Washington park race course
Saturday to witness the opening of the sum
mer meeting. For hours before the time for
the first race Michigan avenue and the drives
leading to the pork were crowded with
every species of vehicle and musical with
the sound of the coach horns. The la
dies were out in throngs, and the scene at the
club house and on the grand stand was one
of great beauty. Upper tendom was out in
force, and the opening was the most brilliant
ever witnessed at the park. Everybody was
impatient for the event of the day, the Amer
ican Derby, worth about $17,000 to the win
ner, and the betting was very lively. It is
said that half a million of money changed
The Kings of the Turf.
When the Drby was called the seven
thoroughbreds who were to show their mettle
promply appeared on the track, and to the
uninitiated any one of them was equal to
winning the prize. Bat when the tug of war
came, with all the confidence of the true
blooded race horse, Spokane brushed away
from his field at the head of the stretch and
won the famous prize easily by a length.
Spokane was a favorite at the track from tbe
time tbe books opened until tbey closed, and
the broad brimmed hats of the Montanans
waved over the crowd in tbe ring and their
wearers poured the cash into the book
makers' hoppers in great wads.
The Race as She Was Won.
The start for tbe day's event was made
after several breakaways, in which Proctor
Knott was always (prominent. Fitzpatrick's
( Knott's rider's) instruction were to take the
track, but when tbe flag fell he was in
fourth place, Once Again having the ad
vantage. Proctor Knott at once cut out for
the front. At the he was leading. He
remaiued in front until the home stretch
was reached, Sorrento and Don Jose being
the next, with Spokane last. When all was
straightened out the colt from Montana
passed his field with the greatest ease, and
amid the hurrah of 40,000 people won tbe
rich prize by a length from Sorrento, who
was a head in front or Retrieve. lime,
2:41V- The time was not phenomenal, but
the course had suffered like all the others
this year from the continual rains, and was
by no means fast Proctor Knott finished
The winners of the other races on the card
were: Marcbma, 1 mile, 1:46: Penn P., i
mile, 1:18; Donovan, ! miles, 1:52; Bag
gage, mile, 1:05.
An F.xecrahle Blonder.
The only trouble to blot the day came at
the last race. By a bad blunder the judges
bung out Baggage's number instead of Red
Light's, and Red Light had really won,
Baggage being somewhere near Pulman
when the race closed. The judges refused to
change their decision, although it was clearly
a bull, and trouble was threatened. Nearly
$35,000 was bet on Red Light, and tbe bet
ters did not propose to let their money slip
from their fingers.
An Angry Mob of Betters.
A crowd of angry men gathered around
the judge's stand and expostulated. Tbe
judges were obdurate. The crowd grew big
ger and madder. Everybody hissed. The
judges left the stand and went to tbe club
house. The crowd followed to tbe iron fence
and were stopped by the police. The judges
sensibly stayed in-doors, and tbe crowd, after
threatening for nearly aa hour to do mis
chief, appointed a committee and adjourned.
Bookmakers Paid on Baggage.
The awkward pert ot the matter was that
the numbers having been put up, the book
makers paid out on the strength of Baggage
being the first horse, and the Paris mutual
did the same. After the judges had got to
the club house a message was sent to them,
telling them to stop paying out, but as an
hour had elapsed the mischief was done, and
the majority of ready money bettors had
Will Make It All Right.
A committee was formed and went up to
the club bouse to ask that justice be done.
They were received by Mr. John R. Walsh,
the treasurer, who told them that such an
h justice could not be permitted and that all
would be righted in the end.
It Was Simply a Blunder.
No one for a moment suggests fraud in
connection with tbe matter. Tbe committee
met tbe judges yesterday, when Gen. Robin
son, of Lexington. Ky., who presided in tbe
judges' btand, acknowledged tbe error, and
expressed great regret at the unintentional
mistake which was caused by Gen. Robin
son misreading seven for three on the jockey's
Anorher Meeting To Be Beld.
No action was taken to correct the blunder
yesterday, but the Washington Park associa
tion will hold a meeting to-day and decide
what is best to be done. Cm. Robinson said
privately last night that he would cheerfully
have given his check for $30,000 rather than
have bad the mistake occur.

Chicago. June 24. The base ball season
has a good ui.-iny possibilities before it, any
one of which is conceivable, except that
Washington should win the pennant. That
seems out of the question. ii$t few people,
at the beginning ot the seasiweuld have
hesitated to bet that Cleveland would not at
the end of two months have held second place
for three weeks. Boston has a great lead
for first place 140 points, while the giants
are down to fourth and Chicago hangs on to
fifth. Tbe latter club is doing a little better,
and a change made in positions last week
gave its friends some hope of improvement,
Ryan being sent out into the field and
Kroch's abilitios as a pitcher utilized. Gen
erally it is thought that to this change is due
the fact that Anson's colts managed to di
vide the honors last week with the Quakers.
