JonnsTowN, Juno 13, Chaos rolgna sit
promo hero to-day. Everybody Is excited
nnd petty quarrels nnd conflicts' between
the laboring men and their bosses nro of
frequent occurrence. By 10 o'clock this
monilug tho town was swarming with la
boring mcu of all types and nationalities,
but tho conditions of "$1.60 ptt day and
pay your own rations," tinder which they
were to bo employed, did not appear to bo
much of an Inducement, and as a result
only ono hundred men aro now1 engaged lu
clearing away tho debris. This gang Is en-
faged lu clearing nway and burning rub
Isli In KcriiTillc.
Not a solitary man Is at work on tho moss
of ruin and putrlfylng flesh ahovo tho stono
lirldgc.lho stench from which Is fast becom
ing unbearable. Tho Indications now aro
that this day Mill bo Wasted, and that to
morrow will witness no moro progress with
tho work than to-day. Tho first conflict
among tho workmen occurred at 0 o'clock
this morning, when an attempt was mado
to dethrone tho forcmau of tho West Alex
nndcr force. Tho contractors disorganized
tho gang, and put a strange- foroman In
charge. Tho mon rcf uso to continue work
under any other than their foreman. Tho
contractor would not conccdo a point, and
tho laborers returned to their tents, whero
they aro still quartered, mid say that they
will return homobeforo they1 will work un
der a strange foreman.
A gang of over 200 Italians was hired to
take tuo places of tho strikers. Tho laborers
'did not tako kindly to (ho Italians and In
timidated them at ovory opportunity. No
opeU conflict occurred, however, until the
Italians were at breakfast. Ono of tho
American laborers mado an Insulting re
mark to ono of the Dagos and tho latter
answered In tho aarao manner, ilot words
followed, resulting In a raid on tho Italians,
who wcrodhrowu bodily out of their tonts.
The Italians reported tho matter to Con
tractor McKnlght, who, In turn, reported to
General Hastings. Tho General expressed
Ills determination to suppress such out
breaks at all hazards.
The assuranco that all men would bo
thoroughly, protected from violence, how
ever, did not allay tho fears of tho Italians
and tho majority of thorn returned to their
tents. Bystanders say that tho conduct of
tho Americans to tho Italian laborers was
outrageous. Contractor McKnlght toUM
iua uauaus iu prepare 10 go 10 worn to
morrow and ho would' guarantee that thoy
would not bo molested.
Htrlkors Charged Upon by Soldiers.
Johnstown, Pa., Juno 13. At 10
o'clock, a gang 6f about 100 men 'wero put
at work on the wreckage near tho general
ofllce of tho Cambria Iron Company. This
morning a largo company of laborers from
G rconsburg refused to go to work for $1.50
er day, claiming that-thcy had been prom
scd fifty cents a day oxtra.
On hearing this General Hastlugs.ordercd
a company of militia to tho como of tho strik
ers; who again refused" to go to work,
whereupon tho soldiers were, ordered to
charge upon them, lunnlng thorn out of tho
camp at the point of the bayonet.-
Tho day Is growing very warm, and the
fumes' and odors from tho decaying flesh Is
becoming terrible.
This morning two small stores were
opened and wcro soon thronged with cus
tomers. CONTRIBUTIONS EHOUOH.
Tho Sleu Asking for Clothing and l'ro
t visions Taken Down.
"Tako down that sign," wan Colonel
Emory's direction to one' of tho assistants
'at Vr'fllord Hall this morning. Ho meant a
big strip pt whlto cloth stretched across tho
trout of the hall bulldlng-on F street, on
-which It was announced In big, black let
ters that contributions of clothing, pro
visions, etc., wcro solicited for tho flood
. sufferers, and could ho loft there. .
Colonel Emery, who has becu to Johns
town to look alter the contributions from
"Washington and eco that they got to whom
they would do tho most gpod, rotumod
about daylight this morning, and after get
ting souio breakfast, he weut right up to
"WUIard Hall. First be bad tho cloth sign
In front .pulled down. Then ho directed
everybody about tho hall to doroto tholr at
tention to packing up what goods wcro on
baud and getting them Into boxes rather
than to trying to get moro goods con
tributed. A pleasant-faced German woman camo
Up tho steps with a big bundle of, cull
(Iron's clothes lu her arms and said she
wanted them sent to tbo flood sufferers.
Colonel Emery mot her at tho door and
Bald: "Don't you know somebody hero In
Washington that noeds these clothes?"
Tho woman said sho didn't, and Colonel
Emery explained to her Ibai ha had Just
como from Johnstown and that tho people
inero una an mo monies tuoy nceuou. "j use
take those clothes, Madame," ho said, ''and
;ivo tucm to somo oi tuo poor, people rigut
era In Washington. Thoro arn lots of
In
them that need clothes much moro than the
people In Johnstown do. Thoy havo got
moro than" thoy can wear now,"
Then" Colonel Emery told a Chitic ro-
Iiorter how In Johustown thoro was ono big
Ivory stablo packed full of clothes, "tho
owner of tho stable," ho said, "wanted to
get tho clothes out so that ho could uso his
Btable, and they couldn't find any placo to
put them. Everybody lias all the clothes
they need, and to send more clothes thero
would bo foolishness. So many clothes
liavo been sent to Johnstown that somo of
tho people havo moro than thoy nood. For
baps many people are better supplied with
clothes now than they ever were before."
"What will you do With tho fifty or sixty
boxes full of clothes jouhavo hero now t"
"Wq shall finish packing what wo have
ou hand now and storo thorn for tho pres
ent. But wo will not receive any morq
and wo aro'going to closo up'thls placo this
afternoon. It Is all over so far as this part
of tho work Is concomofl."

learned when I got to Johnstown was this:
Very few, probably not a quarter, of tho
pcoplo In Johnstown owned tho housoi
ibey lived In and Which wero carried nWay
Jiy tho flodd. Tha companies owned
most of them, uml will rebuild
them. So tho loss of their houses docs
not fall ou the poor people. Uut all those
poor pcoplo lost all their furniture, and
after a wbllo-whou tho houses aro rebuilt
tbey will havo to bo funilshoM. Thou will
bo when money Is needed. This mouoy
that has bcoil contributed should bo kept
till then and then sent to Johnstown to
lielp tho Hood sufferers to buy furulture
tor their houses. Thls,wlll probably uot bo
for a mouth yet, aud I thluk tho monoy
should bo kept hero till thcu. I talked
withGcnoial Hastings about this matter
and his views aro tbo same as thin.
"Wo aro not isklug for any moro contri
butions tor tho flood sufferers," said Colonol
Anderson, whui Is' secretary of tho cltlzcu's
relief committed and who talks to tho ro
pollers wheu Treasurer Johnson Is not In,
"but It auy como lu wo take thorn, .The
present necessities of tho flood sufforers
Hecunto havo tx.cn met and wo havo a big
lialauco lu tho bank to draw from. Ho wo
nro not making any effort at all to ralso any
moro mouoy."
The cud of tho noble work of charity Is
reached and Washington has acquitted
Itself admirably. All tbut mouoy can do Is
douo, and all lliat humanity cau do to re
lievo the tuffiiicra of tho flood has been
douo. Nothing (Si) bring back tho dead,
nnd time aloue can assuage tho anguish of
the survivors, Wellington has done Its
duty and douo It lllierally ami cheerfully
aud nobly.
Contributions nie still straggling lu. but
Jn small amounts from tardy collections
All the money will bo led Inbaukuntl
called fur by tboso lq authority In Johns
iown-t-all but Mich small amounts as may
lie needed lo relieve tho flood sufferers
along the Upper Fotomao. and the canal.

COWS IN THE RIVER.
THEY WILL BE BURNED TO PRO
TECT THE WATER SUPPLY.
llr. Coopor McGinn's Explorations of
tho Sourco from Which tho Writor
Wo Drink Is Drawn nnd Whnt llo
l'ound A Had Htntp or An'nlrs,
Cooper McGInu, who, with Mr. Elustoln,
was sont up tho river by tho Commis
sioners to see If thero was danger of tho
city's water supply being contaminated by
the decomposing bodies of animals drowned
dining tho flood, lying lu tho river, re
turned this afternoon.
Ho Is preparing n long report for Health
Ofllccr Townshcnd, which will bo trans
mitted to tho Commissioners to-morrow.
After telling of tho trip by rati and car
riage to Seneca Dr. McGlnnlells how hunt
ing boats bad to bo need to got down tho
rher. Ho says:
"Wo crossed tho Scnaca dam to near tho
Virginia Bide, and going over went down
through what Is known ns the 'Boalo' or
'Lower' Island section, covering about
ono and a-batf mites, to what Is called tha
Long Acre.'
"Hero It appears that tho grcator mass of
drift coming from nbovo has been de
posited, and It is hero mainly that the
bodies of tho drowned animals wcro found.
"Going from Island to Island and drift to
drift, guided principally by tho offensive
odors arising fiom decomposition of the
animal matter, wo explored this entlro sec
tion and marked tho location of tho car
cases. "In this way ten of them wcro placcd,but
many times tho unmistakable odor camo
from enormous plies of debris that gave no
outWaid evidence of tho cause. For
tunately. In most Instances, these piles
wcro ou land well above tho wator at Its
ordinary height."
Tho trip down tho rapids Is graphically
described, and It was a perilous one. Men
had already becu engaged to destroy tho
decaying bodies. Dr. Mcfllnu continues:
"Iho men who hadagreed to do tho work
met us ou tho tow-path at Long-Aero upon
our crossing to tho Maryland side, they
having gono down on tho shore with Mr,
Einstein, who was sent to survoy tbo river
from tho banks of the canal,
"Whilo tho Investigation mado has not
developed anything that may bo positively
dangerous to tho water supply, yet tho rain
fall which had been coming down all day
f regressed to n steady down-pour, nud
hus was ovldenco that anothor rlso might
oiisuo aud bring the decomposing matter
to tbo mouth of the conduit below.
"Accordlnslv. I arrauecd with Messrs.
A. Violet and Benlamlu Wallace to proceed
at onco to tho destruction of decaying
bodies by nieans of Are.. using kcrosobo and
light drift matter.
"These men aro vouched for by reputablo
citizens in the vicinity, aud thoy agreed to
have all tho offensive matter destroyed
within three days, aud to produce proper
certificates that tho work was thoroughly
well done.
"Wo then continued our vbyago down
toward tbo Great Falls, finding only one"
animal on tho canal bank. Tho boatmen
declined to venture further than tho first
lock above Great tails, and, as darkuoss
was by this tlino approaching, wo wero
iprcca ro iaKo mo canai oauic anil waiK
back t6 that point.
"We stopped over ulght at the hotel, and
this morning looked over -tho ground nt
this point:"
Nothing, the Doctor says, was found
there to justify so serious approhonslou as
the dead animals already fouud.
Dr, McGinn thinks that many of tho car
casses roported as endangering the water
supply havo boon carried below tho point
whero thoy aro'a menace, "
Thci e Is a break In tho canal above tho

Tho Trial of Hydnoy 11. Cunningham'
IlPfrun In tho Criminal Court.
Tbo employes at tho Capitol wcro startled
on tho lltli of March last by tho sound of a
pistol shot. Ou Investigation It was learned
that Sydney B. Cunningham of tbo Scnalo
Postofrico had had some words with Tur
ner Hackman, n riding pago, and had shot
at him, Cunningham was nrrestod and
subsequently Imllctod for assault with lu
tcnt to kill. His trial began lu tho Crimi
nal Court this morning.
It Is very seldom that tho Criminal Court
room sees as dignified a defendant as Cun
ningham. Ha looked far morallko a senior
member of tho Bar than tho defendant to n
criminal charge. Ho chatted pleasantly
with bis counsel aud betrayed no agitation
whatever.
A largo portion of tho morning was occu
pied In obtaining a Jury. Mr. Henry Wlso
(laructt appeared with Colonel llolicrt
Christy for tho prisoner, Tho defonso
claimed ten challenges as allowed lu the
case of a felony, but tho Court ruled that
tho offenso charged was not a felony and
allowed only there. Tho following Jury
was. sworn: 8. Thomas Brown, Samuel
Bryan, Roy C. Jenkins, James K. Forrest,
Jftmes A. Talhcrt, James L. Carbory, Wes
ton B. Turner. Lcsllo R. Trembly, Benja
min I. Ellen, Robert II. .Mitchell, Win. T.
Ashby and Samuel L. Hoover.
Mr. Lipscomb stated tho caso ashoox-
rcctcd to provo It to tho Jury. On March
1, the defendant, Cunningham, was a dis
bursing officer lu tho Scnato postofllce.
Turner Hackman was a riding pago In the
Scnato and received his pay from Mr.
Cunningham. On a day previous to Iho as
sault Cunningham and Hackman had soma
words, and Ilackmaii received n blow. Ho
did nothing then, but later, when ho went
to Cunulugham's desltto receive his half
mouth's pay, ho said to Mr. Cunningham
that ho had mado a cowardly assault on
him. Thereupon, Cunningham ran out
from behind tho desk struck him In the
mouth and entered Into a strugglo with
him. When they separated Cunningham
drew his revolver and fired at him, tho bul
let embedding Itself In tho wall.
Hackman took tho stand. Ho looks to
be B7 or 29 years old, Is slender In build.
and has a light sandy mustache. His faco
Is thin almost to angularity. On tho Cth of
March last, ho said, ho went to Mr. Cun
ningham's room to draw his pay for tho
month previous. Mr. Cunningham was not
there. Ho saw Mr. Cunningham later, and
weut up to him. Greetings wcro pleasantly
exchanged.
"I mentioned to hlin," said tho witness,
"that Mr. Tatum had not received his
check and stated that I had loaned him
$30. Ho said ho wanted tho loan to pay off
his bands. I would llko very much for
hlln to let mo have the check."
The witness' maimer was animated and
.he emphasized his testimony with numer
ous gestures, cuanging ins tones as ua de
livered tho words used by Cunningham In
their dispute. His own words wcro uttered
lu tones of gcutle expostulation.
"1 can't pay you tho chock. It's Tatum's.
Tatum Is tho man that caruod Juo monoy."
"But Tatum was up hero to get his pay,
and you couldn't make It out. lie told mo
to ask you for It, and when I procured it ho
'would Indorse It and lot- mo' havo my monoy
out of It," returned Hackman.
"1 can't do It. Tatum Is tho man that
tho money belongs to. I om not going to
help you collect your dobts."
'If you had dono as you ought you would
have given this check on tho 1st."
With that," said . tbo witness, "he
banged mo lu the mouth." Aud tho spcakor
Illustrated tho proceeding by bringing his
fist onto his hand.
"Then I said : 'Here Is this man coming
uown momii aiier uiouiu lor ims uuio pit-
iuucu. ii yuu uau uuuo as you ougut in
stead of sitting here In tho postofllce ho
wouldn't need this to-day.' "
He then walked away. Ou tho 11th he
went to tho cashiers window nnd said :
"Tho other day down lu tho postofllco I
talked to you In a gentlemanly way; that
was a cowardly way to strlko mo. You
ceitolnly wero n coward to strike mo that
way."
Cunningham camo out toward him with
his hand to his hip pocket. Hackmau
backed away and they exchanged blows,
Cunningham telling him "to get out of
bcro." "Ho went Into another room of tho
Capitol and Cunningham followed him aud
fired at him.

Night or tho Murdor of Dr. Cronlu
A Dorou Man Doing Watched,
Ciiicaoo, Juno 13. Ono of tho most Im
portant nnd startling statements lu connec
tion with tho Croiiln murder was mado
cstcrdav by Jack Slanloy of Iho city
sewerage department to two friends T. P.
O'Connor nud Michael Hart. Tho conver
sation opcucd by an assertion of Stanley
tbot ho "Know (hat fellow Woodruff."
Hart asked! "Where did you know him?"
"Why," said Stanloy, "ho worked at
Denns' stablo on Webster avenue. I keep
my stallion there and became suspicious of
the fellow. I was afraid ho would steal my
horeo or tako him out for service. 1 mado
Inquiries about him and found that ho had
worktd three weeks at tho stablo for noth
ing but his board. This 1 regarded as a
suspicious circumstance. Ha was frequently
for thrco weeks In consultation with a man
who appeared to ho a iletcctlvo or n confi
dence man. I afterward ascertained that
this man was Coughltu, tho policeman ar
rested for tlni miimcr of Dr. Cronlu. I saw
him tho night of tho murder. I was nt
Deans' stablo, about U p. m. Woodruff
began toactlu n suspicious manlier. Ho
slept In n loft over the stablo. Ho took off
his shoes on tho stablo floor and climbed lu
his stocking feet Into tho loft to sleep.
Flvo or six minutes after ho retired I saw
him peep over tho stairway to sco whether
wo had gono."
Tho Importance of this statement lies In
tho fact that It corroborates Woodruffs
story as related to Chief Hubbard to a re
markable degreo. It connects Woodruff
with Coughllii, tho detective, nud also fur
nishes Asjothcr link III tho chain of evidence
which Is colled around that person.

450 acres, and Is said to contalu eight bil
lion gallons of water.
Tho dam Is vory narrow and about
twenty-two feet high. Tho water Is over
square mllo lu area nnd forty feet deep.
It has, within a week past, sprung a Icvk,
but has been temporarily patched up.
Ssdawaga Lake Is on the slilo ot a moun
tain, over MX) feet above Shelburno Falls'
sen level, and lu the event of its demolition
that town would experience a second
Johnstown horror. Tho Dccrfleld River,

torious for Its turbulence during hlgli
water.
So great has tho excitement become
along tho river that a thorough Investiga
tion will bo made, and Iho dam will either
bo repaired or demolished.
