TO REVEAL THE EXTENT OF THE NUM EEB OF LIVES LOST IN THE DELUGE AND FIRE. Johnstown, Pa.. June 3,-The dark disaster oftriday, with its attendant terrors, thrilled the universe and drew two continents closer together in the bonds of sympathy that bind humanity to man. The midnight terrors of Ashtabula and C'hatsworth evoked tears of pity from every fireside in Christendom; but the true story of Johnstown, when all is known, will stand solitary and alone as the acme of man's annihilation by the potent forces to which humanity is ever subject. The menacing clouds still hover darkly over the valley of death, and the muttering thunder that ever an-' nnon reverberates faintly in the distance seems the sardonic chuckle of the demon of de ? < -? ne pursues his way to other lands . other humeri, But THE MODEBN DELUGE HAS DON* ITS WORST for Johnstown. The waterj are rapidly subsid ing; but the angry torrents still eddy around Ararat, and the winged messenger of peace has ?t fiopeared to tell the pathetic tale of those who escaped the devastation of Friday. It is >?? -Knc/ed utterance to say that no pen can adequately depict the horrors of this twin disaster?holocaust and deluge; the deep emo on-* that well from the heart of every specta tor find most eloquent expression in silence? th<- Hik-mre that bespeaks man's recognition of his subserviency to the elements and impotence to avert catastrophe. The insignificance of human life is only fully realized by those who witness such scenes as Johnstown and Chats wtn-.u and Ashtabula, and to those whose mem ory retains the picture of horror the dread ex perience cannot fail to be a fitting lesson. THIS MORNING OPENS CP DARK AND DBEABY. Cireat drops of rain fall occasionally and another storm seems imminent. Every one tec!s thankful, though, that the weather still remains cool, and that the gradual putrefaction or the hundreds of bodies that still line the streams and lie hidden under the miles of driftwood and debris is not unduly hastened, lhis morning the peculiar stench of decaying Human flesh is plainly perceptible to the senses as one ascends the banks of Stony creek for a half mile along the smouldering ruins of the wreck, and the most skeptical now conceive the worst and realize that hundreds, aye. perhaps thousands, of bodies lie charred and blackened beneath 1*HIS GBEAT FUNERAL PYRE. Searchers wander wearily over this smoking mass, and as occasionally a sudden shout comes >ver the waters the patient watchers on .the iiili realize that another ghastly discovery has been added to that long list of revelations that chill every heart and draw tears to the eyes of pessimists. From the banks many charred re mains of victims of flames and flood are plainly visible to the naked eye as the receding waters reluctantly give up their dead. Beneath al most every log or blackened beam a glistening fkull or blanched remnants of ribs or limbs mark all that remains of life's hopes and dreams. Since 10 o'clock last night the fire engines have been busy. Water has been con stantly playing on the burningruins. At times the lire seems almost extinguished, but FITFUL FLAMES BREAK OUT AFRESH in some new quarter and again the water and Hames wage fierce combat. The chief sensa tion of the morning has been the united remon strance of the physieians against the extin guishment of the burning wreck. Thev main tain with a philosophy that to anxious "search ers seems heartless that hundreds, if not thousands of lifeless and decaying bodies lie beneath this mass of burningruins. -'It would be better," they say. --to permit Nature's great est scavenger-the flames-to pursue his work unmolested than to expose to further decay the horde of putrefying bodies that lie beneath this debris. There can be but one result. Days will elapse before the rubbish can be sufficiently removed to permit the recovery of these bodies, and long ere that every corpse will be a parted mass, yielding forth those frightful emenations of decaying human flesh that in a crowded community like this can give but one result?the dreadful typhus. Every battlefield has demonstrated the necessity of the hasty interment of decaying bodies, and the stench that already arises is a fore runner of impending danger. Born the wreck burn the wreck." ' A LOUD CRT OF INDI0NATI0K arose from the lips of the vast multitude, and the warnings of science were lost in the eager demands of those that sought the remains of the near and dear. The hose was again turned upon the hissing mass and rapidly the flames yielded to the supremacy of water. It is almost impossible to conceive the extent of these smoking ruins. An area of eight or ten acres above the dam is covered to a depth of forty feet with shattered houses, borne from the resi dent center of Johnstown. In each of these houses it is estimated there were from one to twenty or twenty-five people. This is accepted as data upon which to estimate the nnmber that perished on this spot, and if the data be correct, the bodies that lie beneath these ruins must run well up into the hundreds, if not the thousands. FBOK FOUR TO FIT* THOUSAND LOST. As yet there is no telling how many lives have been lost. Adjutant-General Hastings, who has charge of everything, stated thismorn ing that he supposed there was at least 2,000 people under the burning debris, but the only way to find out how many lives were lost was to take a census of the people now living, and subtract that from the census before the flood. ' 1,1-v opinion there are anywhere from 4.000 to 5.000 souls lost." Buttery B, of Pittsburg, arrived in the city this morning under command of Lieut Shei? pard. who went to the headquarters of Adju tant-General Hastings, in the tower. The iren eral had Just got up, and as the officer ap Eere?" said: ??Who sent you 1 was sent here by the chamber of com merce," replied the lieutenant OI com ell. I want to state that there are only fonr people who can order yon out, via: The gov ernor, adjutant-general, major-general, and the commander of the second brigade. Yon have committed a serious breech of illMp'ine and my sdvice to you is to get back to Pitts burg as soon as possible or yon may be mus tered out of service. I am surprised that you should attempt ?uch an act without any au thority whatever." this bexmed to nmi the matter, and the battery started back to Pittsburg. In justice to Lieut Sheppard it might be stated that he was told that an order was issued by the governor. Gen. Hastings stated afterward that the sending down of the soldiers wm like the waving a red flag, and would only tend to create trouble. He said evervthing was quiet here, and it wma an insult to the citizens of Johnstown to send soldiers here at present. The Washington infantry came in over the Bal timore and Ohio railroad, and when Captain Shannon reported to Adjutant-General Has tings that gentleman said that there was no need for soldiers' aid. If any were needed he would order out the state guard. He said he had nothing to do with the independent organ izations, consequently he would not advise them further than to say there was no need of any soldiers. a train load of provisions. A train of five cars came in from Cumber land, 51d., this morning, loaded with pro visions and thirty men to help clean up tho debris. The general undertaking rooms are at work, and about sutv coffins containing bodies of unknown people are piled up on the station and platform. Quite a pathetic sight was seen this morning on the bridge. Up till to-<lay Gtn. Hastings had his headquarters on the east side of the river, but this morning he came over to the burning debris, followed by about 125 men, carrying coffins. He started to work immediately and has ordered men from Philadelphia, Harrisburg, and all eastern towns to do laboring work. The stealing by Hun garians at Cambria City and points along the railroad has almost ceased. The report of several lynchings, and the drowning of two Italians while bt ing pursued by citizens yes terday, pat a damper on soulless pilfering for a time. prominent citizens dead. Some of the most prominent citizens of this city and of the state are among those who have perished. John Fulton, president of the Con stitutional Amendment association and general manager of the Cambria ironworks is drowned, with his wife and children. H. J. Koberts, cashier of the First National bank, and John Dibert. a banker, were also drowned, the former's son perishing with him. The wife and daughter Minnie of Cyrus Elder, one of the greatest authorities on the tariff in the country are dead. H. A. Schoemaker, prothouotary of Cambria county; h. J. Rose, district at torney; Dr. John Lowman, the wife and eight children of Chief of Police Harris, and tlfe wifo and three children of T. YV. Kirkland, a well known jeweler, are dead. C. T. Schubert, editor of the Frtut Frtste, is also believed to be drowned. another heroine. Mrs. Ogle, the manageress of the Western Union, who died at her post, will go down in history as a heroine of the highest order. Not withstanding the repeated notifications which she received to get out of the reach of the ap proaching danger, she stood by the instrument I with unflinching loyalty and undaunted cour j age, sending words of warning to those in dan ger in the valley below. When every station in tho path of the coming torrent had been warned she wired her companion at South Fork, "This is my last message, ' and as such it shall always be remembered as her last words on earth, for at that very moment the torrent en gulfed her and bore her from her post on earth to her post of honor in the great beyond. the most A WTO. destruction in a single house occurred at the Hurlbut hotel. There were 57 people in the house when the torrent came down, and of these only 10 are | living. Four travelers, who were staving at the Hurlbut, went to the fourth floor when the flood came, and after wishing each other "good I bye" surrendered themselves to fate. Fate | was death to three of thein. Those three were John Little, of Sewickly; W. J. Cox. of Phila 1 delpnia. and R. S. Metz. The one survivor is ] John Dorsev, of Philadelphia. The register of , the wrecked hotel cannot be found, so it is im I possible to give the names of all those who | perished in the Hurlbut house. Those who are j known to have perished are Elmer Brinker and ; Dr. Brinker, two brothers, two Mrs. Richards, | a man named Butler, Mrs., Miss Hnd Lewis : Benford. mother, sister and brother of the ! proprietor. Mrs. Smith and her two children ascended to the fourth floor with the four travelers when the flood came. The woman 1 was drowned and the man escaped. a crrr or the dead. 7:30 a.m.?Nineveh is literally a city of the dead. The entire place is filled with corpses. I At the depot eighty-seven coffins were piled up ; and boxed. On the streets coffin boxes covered the sidewalks. In the improvised undertaking shops Sampson & Devoreh have embalmed and placed in their shrouds 193 persons. At everv j place there were dead strewn around as thick i as flowers in a conservatory. Most of the bodies embalmed last night had been taken out ' of the river in the morning by the people at Nineveli, who worked incessantly night and day searching the river. The bodies, when found, were placed in a four-horse wagon, fre quently twelve at a time, and driven up to Robert Kerr's and Graham's shop by Harvey Morehead. Of the bodies taken out near Nine veh tully three-fourths are women and the rest children. But few men are found there. In one row at the planing-mill to-day were eighteen children's bodies awaiting embalming. Next to them was a woman whose head had been crushed in so as to destroy her features. On her hand were three diamond rings. THE DEATH LIST MOCNTINO CP ATFALLINGLT. The cry is now for more coffins, as the death list is mounting up appallingly. Members of the state board of health arrived in Nineveh this morning and determined to proceed at once to dredge the river to clean it of the dead and prevent the spreading of disease. To this end they have wired the state department to furnish them with the proper appliances. They will take charge of the town to-day.

AH INCORRECT RUMOR. The rumor about the death of CoL John H. Linton and family is incorrect. On the south side of the town, where rescuers are at work, are between 500 and 600 bodies. A number of Srominent people whose names are found in le list of dead were taken out of the debris on the street near the club house. The bo-lies are lying among the mass of wrecked buildings as thick as flies. IDRMTinKD AT KINZTEH. A committee of three from Cambria City was sent down the river to examine the bodies fonnd.

They took out fattier, mother and three children, all terribly burned and muti lated. Ihe little girl had one arm torn off. TENDER Ncascs ARRIVE. In direct contrast to the stones of outrage at the hands of ghouls who have dared to dese crate the stiff and mangled corpses is the ad vent of Clara Barton, at the head or her band of merciful angels, the Red Cross so ciety. Their presence is feit everywhere. Rough, clumsy men have been relieved by these tender nurses, whose labors of love have made many a battle-deli seem le.->s terrible and bloody. They walk noitelesslv about in the big church that serves a* a hos pital. easing the sufferings of the wounded and calming as best they can the half-crazed sur vivors. They can be seen making their ?uv through the ruined street* directing the wori of dragging out the victims. THE ATTE1HTS OF THIEVES. Saturday would have been pay dav at the Cambria iron works. Tho money??10.000? was drawn from the bank on Friday and was placed in the vaults of the couipaiiv's ortice. It is still there, and is a constant temptation to the many profession il and amateur thieves who are on the ground. On Saturday night an attempt was made to rob the First National bank, all of *hich. ex cept the vaults, had been destroyed. The thieves were discovered by the citizens' patrol, and a lively chase ensued." Six of *ie scoundrels were shot, but it is not known whether anv were killed or not. as their bodies would have been washed away immediately if such had been the case. The natural gas has been shut off, and no fire is allowed in the town. Bishop Phelan and Fathers Corcoran and Gallagher are now here. One of the Catholic churches burned ou Saturday. A tuner.il s.i? being held at the time. The congregation deserted the church and the bodv burned with the building. The brick Catholic church in the center of the town is totally wrecked. STORY OK AN KYE WITNESS. Exciting Experiences of a Baltimore Drummer oil a Train. Baltimore, Md.. June 3.?C. W. Linthcum, a drummer for a Baltimore firm, arrived here this morning. He was witness to the disastrous flood at Johnstown, of which he tells the following story: My train left Pittsburg at 1 o'clock "for " Johnstown. The train was due at Sang Hollow at 4:0;!. but but was five minute* late. At .-ang Hollow, just as we were about to pull out of the station, we heard the tlood wus coming. Looking ahe<ad up the valley we saw an immense wall ot water at least thirty feet high raging, roaring, rushing toward us. The engineer reversed his engine and rushed back toward the hills at lull speed, and we barely escaped the rush of waters. We rau back L;00 yards and the flood swept by, tearing up tracks, telegraph j?oles. houses, aud trees. Superintendent Pitcair was on the train. All got out and tried to save the floating people. Taking the bell cord off the train we formed a line and threw the rope out, saving seven persons. We could have saved more, but many were afraid to let go the lloating debris. IT WAS AS AWFCL 6IOHT. The immense volume of water was roaring along, whirling over huge rocks, dashing against the banks and leaping high into the air, aud this seething flood was strewn with grinding and crushing timbers, trunks of trees, parts of houses and hundreds of human beings, cattle, dogs, catB and almost every living animal. The fearful peril of the living wss not more awtul than the ghastly horror of hundreds of dis torted bleeding corpses whirling along the avalanche of death. We counted 107 persons alive floating by on pieces of timber, and dead without number. A section of roof came by upon which were sitting a woman and young girl. A man named C. W. Heppeustall. of Pittsburg, waded and swam out to the ? oof. He brought the girl in first a*d then the woman. They told us they were not relatives. Tn. woman had lost her husband and four children and the girl her father, mother, and entire family. A little bov came by with his mother. Both were as calm as could be, and the boy was apparently trving to comfort his mother. They passed, unheeding our profered help. and. striking the bridge below, west dows nrro the toetex like lead. One beautiful girl came by with her hands raised in prayer, and although we shouted to her and ran along the bank she paid no attention to ns. We conld have saved her If she had caught the rope. An old Irishman and his wife whom w? saved said that eleven started from Cambria City on the roof, but all the others had dropped "off. About 8 p.m. we started back to New Florence. All along the river we saw canght in the branches of innum erable trees and wedged in oorners in the banks corpses. without number. A large syca more tree In the river between Sang Hollow and New Florence seemed to draw into it nearly all who floated down, and they went under the surface at its roots like lead. When the waters subsided 209 bodies ware found at the roou of this tre*. All nifht living and dr?d floated by New Florence. A' Pittsburg 7S bodies were recovered on Sat urdsy. and u m-.BT now were seen floating by. Hundred* at people from ill-fated Johnstown are wandering homeless and starring on the m <unt?ins. \ erv few saved anething. and I aaw n iml'Cit go'ne down the itnam uerfectlv naked. The fuffering within th? natt few day* will be something fearful nnlsss prompt relief u extended. A RELIEF TRAIN. Contribution* of Supplies Received fro IB Towui ail Alone the Route. Job**tow*, Pa.. June 3.?The relief train from P.tuburg over the Baltimore and Ohio road reached here at 2 o'clock this morning . after an exciting ride np the mountain. All along the road at each town contribu tions were tnaue to the already well-filled cart of provisions. McKeesport added two to tha three laden from Pittsburg; two more were added at Braddock; three at West Newton, and so on all the way to Johnstown until, when the Utter was reached, the train bad ten loaded car*. When Johnston wax reached every one was anxious to get to work to assist in the work of rescue. A party was made np and started for the lower part of the town. The path was covered with tree*, rocks, fences, parts of honses and every imaginable thing. Bureaus, beds, sideboards and furniture of all kinds were strewn from I hill to hill. The whole valley of Stony creek for miles up from Johnstown is filled w'lth de , bris of all kinds. The line of tha Baltimore j and Ohio has been cleared of debris aud it is pil?d up on each side as high as the top of the our*, when the lower part of the town waa reached the scene presented waa beyond da ; scription. ll.ilf Icm not been told, nor never will be. as to tlie extent of the awful wreck. From the Pennsylvania railroad to Main street there ia not luii,: standing but the stone church i hnd the large brick school-house. Tha Mansion house is gone and over one hundred ]>eople were lost there. From the Pa tunore and Outo depot you onn see for blocks in every direction, aud between the d< pot and the poiut there is standing only a part of the Mosrell block and two small brick o*ticee thtt were protected by the Morrell building. The town was at rest early iu the uiorn.ug. EVERT ONE WAS THOR0C0HLT EXHAUSTED with the terrible strain and the work of the last two days and night*. The town is under nihrti.il law and every one who goes about the ]?lacc is challenged and required to give an account of himself. Tho water has sub sided to a trreat extent, aud the streets ; in the main part of the towu ara i tree from water. The falling water has laid bare the terrible work of the flood, and the full extent of the disaster is only being ascertained now. Tho streets are one sickening, foul stnelling mae of wood and debris, and the work of searching for bodies has only fairly begun. The latest estimates put the loss of life at from HUH") to 12.000. It is impossible to get any account of the number lost. Every one m so thoroughly tired out and overcome by the weight of the disaster as to be utterly unable to give any accurate d- tails or figures. k CONDrCToB'S STOKT. Frank McDonald. ? conductor on the Somer set branch of the Baltimore and Ohio waa at tho Pennsylvania railroad depot when ' tho flood caiuu. lie said when ho first saw the flood it was 30 feet high Mid gradually rose to at least 40 feet. There is no doubt that the South Fork dam broke," said Mr. .Vld'onald. "Fifteen minute* before the dood came. The. i>ecker, the l'enusylvauia railroad agent, read me a tele gram he had Just received, saying the South Fork hud broken. As soon as he heard I this the people in the station, number ing 000, made a rush for tha bilL I certainly think I saw 1.000 bodies go over the bridge. The first house that came down struck the bridge and at once took fire, and as fast as the otlu rs came down they were consumed. I believe I am safe in saving I saw a thousand bodies burn. It reminded me of a lot uf flies on fly pi.per struggling to get away, with uo h<>pe and no chance to save th< m. 1 have no idea that had the bridge been blown up the loss of life would have been any less. They would have floated a little further with the same certain death. Then, again, it was iui : possible for i.ny one to have reached the bridge iu order to blow it np. for the waters came so fast tnat tio one could have done it. I saw 15 to 18 bodies go over the bridge at the same time. I offered a man e'20 to row me across the river, but could get no one to go." GENEROIS CONTRIBUTION.
