There having 'been considerable gossip
' about the financial strength .of the South
Pork Fishing Club, a reporter of The Dis
patch yesterday investigated the matter.
Burners had fixed the capital stock of the
clnb at'anrwhere from 100,000 to 200,000.
These figures were found to be absurdly
high. The writer first examined one of the
certificates of stocfc which each or the lake
owners In Pittsburg holds. It reads as fol
lows:, ' v
Smith Fork'Xiihing and Hunting Club,
Incorporated March 19, 187$.
'.Be It known that is entltled'to
- (No.) of shares of the capital stock
of the South Fork Fishing .and Hunting Club,
subject to the terms of the articles of Incorpor
ation and the by-laws of the club.
-Hereunto are affixed the seal of said club and
. sirnatures of the president and Treasurer, this
day of December, 1S57.
LocislR-mx, J. J. LA.WBESCE,

The Charter Itself.
... ttThere was nothing on the above to indi
cate the amount of capital stock. But in
the office oi County Becorder Graham iu the
Court House was found a copy of the charter
of the club. The application was made to
Judge Stowe. He granted it, and Pro
thonotary B. F. Kennedy drew up the pa
pert for the court at the December term in
1879. The lorm of the charter is as follows:
Hon- the Charter Heads.
. Fin t The name and title of this organisation
shall be the South ForK Fishing and Bunting
Club of Pittsburg, incorporated under and in
pursuance of the provisions of an act of General
Assembly of Pennsylvania, approved April 9,
lS74,.crititled "An Act, etc."
'Second This association shall hare for its
object the protection and propagation of game
and game fish, and the enforcement of ail laws
ot this State against the unlawful killing or
wounding of the same.
Third This association shall have Its place of
business In the city of Pittsburg, county of
Allegheny. State of Pennsylvania.
Fourth This association shall as such exist
peruetually from the date of its incorporation.
Fifth The capital stock of this association
shall be $10,000, divided into 100 shares of the
value of $100 each. The names of the subscrib
ers are as follows:
KKRuff, T. H. Sweat, Charles J. Clark,
Thomas Clark, W. F. Fundenberg, Howard
Hartley, H. C. Teaser, J. B. White. H.CFrick,
9x- a. oieyers, u. vi ijussey. JL. It. i.wer, . A.
Carpenter. W. L. Dun, W. L. McClintocfc,A.V.
The Liability Limited.
Not long after the charter was granted,
the capital stock of the club was increased
from $10,000 to 55,000. There was no need
td make it more. That figure amply cov
ered the cost of improvements and the pri
vate cottages along the lake were, oi course,
erected with private funds. Since then
there has not been much activity in stocks
of the club. The present officers of the
club are Colonel E. J. linger. President;
Colonel J. J. Lawrence, Vice President:
Louis Irwin, Treasurer; E. A. Meyers. Sec
retary. For several years Colonel Buff was
President, and John A. .Harper, cashier of
the Bank of Pittsburg, was Secretary and
Treasurer. Colonel ,Buff and some others
arc now dead.
fif course the club is only liable finan
cially to the limit of its capital stock. Its
prjoperty at South .Fork is. valuable even in
rittiresent drained .-condition. -The dam
will never be rebuilt.- The officers of the
club are all so deeply shocked by the catas
trophe, and so earnest in their efforts to
help the sufferers that they have not had
the heart to think of their club's future.
.Some of the members of the club are
demonstrating their usefulness io humanity
(in spite of some unfair newspaper reports)
byjaiding the State Board of Health to pre
ventlhe rise and -spread of sickness from
polluted waters. This aid is substantial in
its-way. One of the club stockholders told
the reporter yesterday that there was actu
ally not so much danger now from an epi
demic along the Allegheny river and in
Pittsburg as there will be" later on. He
. said the danger will come when the river
falls to a low stage.
Bad Water Tet.
George' H. Clapp, the well-known chemist,
was asked his opinion of the latter state
ment. "It is true," he said." "There is
practically no danger from drinking the
Allegheny liver water now, because the
driver is still high, and very swift. The
mud is the dirtiest thing about the water
sow. After a while we will have
very warm weather. That will
cause the carcasses and corpses up
-stream to .putrefy very fast. By that time
the river will have iallen to a low stage,
and will have a sluggish currenti Its water
will fairly teem with organic matter, and it
being warm weather, more of the water will
be drank than now.
'"The Allegheny river is not the kind of a
river which purifies itself everv 12 miles.
Streams that do that are supposed to be
shallow, full of rapids and constantly
tnmbling over rocks. This makes
it,, violent and swift of current,
and the agitation of the water aids in the
purifying process. Now. while the Alle
.ghenyis a swiftly-flowing stream, it is deep
and without rapids. The Monongahela is
a.very sluggish stream and would carry im
purities even farther than the Allegheny."
A Lawyer -Expended i 83 "Hours Going to
HarrUbnrg nnd KeiBrnlngv
A lawyer who is too much exhausted to
.give his name, but one who has charge of
suits of some liquor dealers, who are after
the -authorities for not granting licenses,
had- an experience in getting to
Harrisburg which he thicks will
last him a life-time. He started
at 1020 o'clock last Sunday, night, on the
Baltimore and Ohio Bajlway, on informa
tion that Harrisburg might be reached, by
rail, by carriage, on horseback and on,foot
in a couple of days. After riding a few
hours this varied programme was jound
impossible or performance, except by a pro
fessional pedestrian. So he came back.
He then laid in a supply of guide books,
timetables, etc, and took a fresh start via
Buffalo on the Pittsburg and Lake Erie
Bailroad and any other railroads that might
be found communicating either directly or
remotely with Harrisburg. He got there on
Thursday, lust in time to save his distance
in the last hour of the afternoon session and
presented the case as well as possible in the
limited time allowed, and started back as
soon as possible, this time by the Cumber
land Valley and other routes, and got to
Cumberland. Here. he found trains all run
ning wild, and was again delayed, but after
vexations unparalleled he succeedtd in get
ting back to his office at 11:30 A. M. yester
day, after spending 132 hours exclusive of
the time of argument in going ttjand coming
from Harrisburg.
It is said that some people will hear some
thing drop in this connection on the 27th
icst, when the Court will declare its de
cision in Philadelphia. ' "What it will be
cannot, of course, be stated at present.
The lawyer who had 'such a tedious ex
perience refused to give his name, but it
may be stated that the initials are Morton

St. Paul called attention to the great
matter kindled by a little fire, but he
doesn't seem' to have had any knowledge of
the legal combustion possible to be devel
oped by a clothes line controversy, or he
wonld have used a different metaphor. As
soap was unknown in lanndrys in St.
Paul's days perhaps clothes lines were also
and the gift of prophecy may not have un
veiled the future in this direction, when
lawn was spread upon the blushing rose to
dry. i
Two ladies named Mrs. Tomer and Mrs.
Bnshenberg have lately been engaged in
putting fat on Alderman Kolan's ribs. Mrs.
Bushenberg has a contract to do laundry
work for some theatrical companies. She
alleged that Mrs. Tomer had swept dust
against this clothing and had her arreted
on a charge.of malicious mischief. Subse
quently Mrs. Tomer bad occasion to do
some washing, and in drying the wash she
hung her line on a hook which Mrs. Bush
enberg claims as, her property;. The latter
detached the line and let, as alleged. Mrs.
Tomer's wash fall into the mud. Thisgave
Mrs. Tomer an opportunity to strike back,
and the result was another suit, with pros
pect tnat oeiore all this linen is washed in
public several weeks laundry profits will
have gone glimmering.

They Decide to Bay a Hoase Tor the Family
of the Late John A. Little.
A well. attended meeting of the Pittsburg
Traveling Salesmen was held yesterday
aiternoon in the Stevenson building, Sixth
avenue, for the purpose of adopting measures
to benefit the family of the .late John A.
Little, a fellow salesman who was drowned
in the flood at Johnstown.
C. H. Kelly presided.' C. L McKee
stated that Mr. Little had a family living
in Sewickley, consisting of eight members,
the youngest of whom was 3 years old and
the eldest 19. Mr. McKce sntrfested the
best plan lor providing for the family of
the deceased was to establish a fund and
buy a house for Mrs. Little and .get her
oldest son in business.
The committee appointed for the" purpose
was C. L ilcKee, treasurer; D. C. Shaw,
K.3. Harrison, and "W. A. Dnmbrell,
trustees. A"subscription was started and
$517 in cash immediately raised and $749
promised, making $1,260 the result of the
Resolutions of respect to the memory of
Mr. Little were adopted and a eopy was
ordered sent to his Jamily.
Gone to Europe.
A party of well-known gentlemen in
Pittsburg left for New York last night, en
route for Europe. Their names are James
F. Moore, J. P. Thompson, Evans Hoyt, of
the "Parlor Match " L. Johnson, Chris
Grover and Pred Hallen of "Later On:"
They will embark on the City of Paris.
Mr. N.J?. "Sloan, ot lhe Oil Exchange,
has been entertaining for the past few days
at his home, at 212 Center avenue, his sister,
in-law, Mrs. Charles Griffith. Mrs. Grif
fith will be best known in Pittsburg as Miss
.Mollie Jennings, daughter of Bichard Jen
nings, the oil operator, and for a number of
years a student of thePennsylvania Col
lege, at the East End. Her husband owned
one of the principal'drugstores In Johns
town; located at the corner of Main and
Franklin streets, though pretty thoroughly
flooded, it seems to have been supported. by
buildings around it, and was not carried
away. A large proportion of the drugs
were saved. These Mr. Griffith turned over
to the Belief Committee for use in their
hospital work, and"placed himself at their
service in dispensing drugs. In this work
he is still engaged.
When the dam broke there was no one in
Mr. Griffith's store except a small bov,
John Walker by name. Mr. Griffith him
self, at the first rising of the water, had left
the' store in charge of his clerk and gone
over across Stony creek to his home on the
south side, or what is known a; Kernville,
to look after his family. Soon after the
clerk, alarmed for the safety of his own
relatives, as the water was still rising, left
the store, instructing young Walker to
close up.
Saved by tbo Elevator.
So the boy was left alone when the crash
from the dam came down upon the city.
He heard the engine whistles shrieking the
alarm and the roar of the flood approach
ing. Hurrying to the elevator he started
the machinery and raised himself to the
third story. It seemed toliim an age that
the elevator took in slowly making its way
to the top of the building. Below him he
could see with horror the rushing of the
water, its ascent seeming to be as rapid as
his own. A dread lest the machinery should
give way almost paralyzed him. At last
the elevator reached the top story, the
water scarcely two feet below. Hurriedly
scrambling to the roof the boy remained
there all that night and the next day until
rescue came.
Meanwhile, the experience of the Griffith
lamuy at tneir nome across btony creeK,
was crowded with dramatic incidents. As
Mrs. Griffith related it to The DISPATCH
reporter, who called upon her at Mr.
' Sloan's last evening, her eyes filled with
tears and her lorm trembled witn excite
ment of the recollection. The interest
of her story centers about the four
houses iu Kernville, which, if his observa
tion is correct, are the, only- ones of the
many hundred homes in the low land of the
prosperous and. beautiful south side now
standing. These four houses, Mr. Griffith's
and Mr, George Schryock's (a double house),
Mr. Dean Cannon s, Mr. B. F. Horner's
and Sheriff Baumer'i withstood the flood
and became the salvationof many whose
homes had been swept away. All through
that dreadful night men, women and chil
dren floating down fa roots and timbers
round lodgement andj&rety on the roofs and
in the attics of thesfour houses.
Font- Harbors of Refuse.
In Mr. Dean Cannon's house between 40
and 60 people taken from floating wreck
and timber remained crowded together in
one room all tight On SETeriff Baumer's
roof there were a still larger number. On
Mr. Horner's roof and in his attic there!
were between 30 and 40 people. The, Grif
fith hoUsa was but a stone's throw from the
Horner, on Morris street. The scenes of
the nigUt there are best described in Mrs.
Griffithrs own words.
."Mjrnusband and I,"shesaid,"werestand
ing or? the front porch when we heard the
engine whistle. Immediately a great black
masseemed to be advancing right upon us.
I shrieked that the judgment day had come.
Indeed I thought that that was what it was.

tbe presence of mind to shut off the natural

we made our way as best we could uB.the
high ground' towardithe cemetery. Alaost
the first people that I met were my e8h
bors,.the Homers and their guests. Their
daughter had been married Thursday night,
the night before the flood. I was one of
the guests. It was one of tha- brightest,
gayest weddings there had ever bderi'in
,- .
A Wedding Party in the Flood.
"I could not but mark tie contrast Here
were the bride and groom, father and
mother and guests, in tatters, disconsolate,
seeking- for refuge .and food. Hardly 24
hour? before I had been among them, at the
wedding. And-such a wedding. Thire
was dancing and music without end. And
such a pretty, couple, the bridal pair. Miss
Daisy Horner and Mr. Will Kuhn, of
Pittsburg. There were over 120 guests.
Hagan.of Pittsburg, spread the 'banquet,
Kev. Dr. Pink performed the ceremony.
The bride wore white silk and carried
white' roses; the bridemaid. Miss Susie
Luther, wore pink silk and had a bouauet
of pink roses: It was all beautiful,
and then to see this desolate remnant of tbe
party on the hillside near the cemetery,
wrecks and dead bodies are about them;
the poor bride with no clothing except a
ragged skirt and draggled white shawl,
pale nntl trembling, crying- as if her heart
wonld break; the .bridegroom half insane
about the fate.of his mother and sister, sap-'
posed to be lost in the wreck of the club
house; Other guests trembling about more
like ghosts than like living people. Ob, it
was a pitiful contrast a terrible ending to
that wedding party. .
"Out of the 120 guests I will not attempt
to say how many 3re now living. Those I
met on the-hillside had remained at the
house all night, afterthe ceremony, as many
were invited to do, and were saved. Among
them was Mr. Charles Linton, of the Union
depot ticket office at Pittsburg, who was
groomsman, Mr. Harry Kuhn and his sis
ter, the two Misses Luther and Miss Grace
Horner, sisterof the bride. But Mr. Linr

the invitation to stay all night and went
home with a Miss Ogle. Both were drowned.
Dr. Harry- Phillips, of Pittsburg,
who lost mother, niece, brother-in-law
and sister in the flood,
was also one oT the guests at that wedding.
If you accept what I believe to be true, that
there are not nine whole families in Johns
town that is, not nine lamilies who have
not lost some of their members bthis dis
asteryou can imagine how I feel when I
think of that wedding party of 120 guests
that lattended the night before the flood at
our neighbor's house."
Mrs. Griffith left the city last night to go
to the house- o7 her father, Mr. Richard.
Jenning, at Brady's Bend, where she will
remain sometime.

tttic. Our hired girl followed us, and we
re there none too soon, for in a moment
we heard the water crashing into the house
below us.
"Well; there we were, peering out of the
little attic window and upon such a scene.
I won't attempt to describe it. The hotel
across tbe way was hurled by the flood di
rectly upon us, and, swinging around, lay in
the water almost within reach. The water
was almost up to the level of our window.
Houses and roofs with their freight of cling
ing, shrieking, wailing human beings floated
down past us, some lodging against our
house. When they lodged, the poor wretches
on them, half crazed, half naked, would
crawl up upon our roof and down into the
attic and fall, weeping and wailing and
shivering with fear and cold upon the
"A red flame flashing up from near the
chhrch revealed the whole horrible scene to
us. We could see the faces of those we
knew-turned toward us as they floated down
past. In this way we saw the Bandolph
family, the Hamilton family and the Bals
inger'family as they floated past us. By
this light we could recognize the faces of
those who floated up to "our house and
found lodgment there.

with bis little family, chilled, soaked
scantily dressed and half fainting, they had
floated down the street upon the roof of their
house. They made their way into our
attic, and we gave them such welcome as we
could. It was not much of a welcome,
though, .for- everyone was paralyzed with
fear, and little was said, and that little we
hardly knew what we were saying. My
own voice sounded to me strange and far
away. It was like the voice of one talking
in another room. You must remember that
many of us expected every moment that the
house. we were in would be carried down
with the flood. I asked Mrs. Shryock, who
had come over from her part of the bouse to
our attic, if she thought we were safe, and
she replied "in a whisper that we would
surely be drowned. I heard some about me
talking to themselves and saying that it
was, the judgment day and praying for
mercy. '

timbers of some floating house strike ours
and lodge there, and people almost naked
and half crazed would join our dismal com
