FeBruARY 7, 1884. l
Since our last letter the deluge has
overrun the fair valleys of the MO-i
nongahela, Alleghcny, Youghegany
and Ohio, carrying devastation in its
coarse, and where once were happy
homes and fert le fieldsit is now a vast
gea of ice, uprooted trees that hldi
withstocd the blast of many winters,
and the debris of runined homesteads.
For a few days it required but a little
stretch of the imagination to realize
that this city and Allegheny were
superbs of Venice, the Queen of the
Adriatic, as the waters were spread
from the foot of Duquesne Heigbts,
on the south side of Pittsburgh, to
the table land adjacent to Seminary
Hill, on the north side of Allegheny
City. The result has been the en
forced idleness of 30,000 men in 2d
dition to the loss of property by bus
incss mien 2nd private families, which
will probably aggregate above 2,000,
000 dollars, in this district alone,
although the worst is now over, and
the river slowly returning to its
proper channel. Corfidence bas not
returned yet, as it is still cloudy and
raining oceasionally.
The flood, for a time, para'yzed
the efforts of the politician, bat with
the near approach of election day
the ward workers have become very
active, and the rival candidates for
the Mayoralily seem to realige that
eternal vigilaoce is the price of office.
The contest will be close, with the
chances slightly in favor of Fuiton,
the Republican candidate. The con:
testants for Select Courncil in the
Seventh ward are leaving no store
untarned by which they may make a
vote. H.I. Gourley is backed by
the city ring and is making a per
sonal canvass through the ward. Ile
has shook hands with necarly every
man in the ward, and takes such an
intercst in the welfare of the people
that they are dumbfounded. lis
opponent 13 a popular young man,
whose course has been such that
his encmies can say nothing
against him, except that he has
never been in oftice, which is not a
very grave offence. If be does not
win he will bave the satisfaetion of
knowing that he gave his opponent a
grea deal of uneasiness,
The chairs in a great many down
town barber shops have been on a
tour, and scme were fo elevated
that they touched the ceilings during
the flood. Mr. Robert Davis, sr., at
the Scott house, RR. Davis, jr., at the
St. Clair hotel and Jobn Jones cor
ner of Wood and Fourth avenues
were flooded out, and had about 20
or 30 others in the same business to
keep them company, the resnlt was
that shaving went up, up town for a
few days. The Wylie avenue Sab
bath schcol gave a concert at the
church on the I4th ipst; Valentine
day which was well attended. The
trio of Emanuel Juckson, A-J. Bil
lows and Robert Brady was pathetic
enongh to draw tears from the
stoniest heart. Come sgain ye sons
of song.
Mr. Dennis Powell of Wilkens
burgh took in the sights around our
city during the flood.
Mr. Burd Dinmy although a streng
temperance advocate says he don't
want any more water in his, at least
in his dining room.
Our exquisite townsman Mr. Char
les Golden has bid a long farewell to
all his friends in the smoky city and
henceforth will make Chicago his
home. Charlie thinks there is too
much fogyism in Pittsburg for a pro
gressive young man. Perhaps you
are right Charlie.
Master Howard Hill is confined to
his chamber by cold caused by the
sudden changes in the weather, but
we hope to see him in his new gum
boots in a few days.
Mr. Morrig the agent for the Jour
~arL and several othe papers edited
by colored men has by his tact and
business energy, made his shaving
parlor the most popular resort in the
city.
All the colored aspirants for coun
cilmanic honors in the Bth ward ap
pear to have withdrawh excapt John
A. Askins. This gives a fair chance
to have a representative if they will
but turn out and support one of their
