THE PITTSBTJRG DISPATCH, THURSDAY, "AUGUST 22, " '1889.
4'. $if LEE IS DISAPPOINTED. The Work of Clearing Up Johnstown Should Xot be Suspended STILL DANGER OF AN EPIDEMIC. A Dream Leads to the Discover of a Dead Body in the Elver. ALL THE KEWS FROM KEAEBY TOWKS IFrECIAL TELIOKJLM TO THE DISPATCH. Johxstown, August 2L Doctor Lee returned to-day, expecting to meet Gov ernor Beaver here, but in this he was disap pointed, as the Chief Executive failed to show up. The doctor says he does not understand the reason the Governor did not come, as be certainly understood he was to meet him here to-day. It Mai expected, the doctor said, to go over the town and make a personal examination so that the Governor might know for'himcelf just bow things were. The doctor says he was under the impres sion all the time, until a few days ago, that the Governor bad $1,000,000 at bis command to carry out the work ordered by the State Board of Health. Becentlv, be savs, the Governor informed him that only $300,000 was available for that purpose. This, the doctor says, was a great surprise to him, as be had been conducting operations on the theory that the larger sum was to be ex pended, and the work was accordingly laid out in a thorough manner. MUCH DISArPOIXTED. The doctor expressed himself as being much disappointed if the work should cease now, and he earnestly hoped some plan might be devised to raise the money neces sary to push the operations by the Board of Health. There is great danger of a serious epi demic, the doctor says, should the vigilance which the Board of Health has been exer cising in keeping the place in good sanitary condition be abated. The 5300,000 has about all been expended, and the work will now practically cease unless more money is forthcoming. An extra session of the Legis lature now seems to be the only available means of securing the necessary funds. It seems inhuman to leave hundreds of dead people to be undisturbed in the cellars of the houses adjoining the walks of the liv ing, all because there is no money to pay for their removal. From a sanitary point of view, however, the need of clearing out the cellars and debris is most pressing, as seri ous consequences are bound to ensue if this is not done. THE EASTEKK SUFFEEEES. Secretary Kremer has gone to Harrisburg to look after the distribution in the 18 coun ties in the Eastern part of the State. In the meantime the work goes slowly on here, and it is verv doubtful, lrom present appearan ces, if the committee will be ready to pay out another dollar for a month or more. The matter of dredeing the rivers, so as to prevent the annual overflow, is a serious problem and various plans have been sug gested. The Secretary of War, in a recent letter to Governor Beaver, says that noth ing can be done in the way of making pre liminary surveys, however, until authorized by an act ot Congress. Ever since the flood the streets and alleys throughout the town have been blockaded by people throw ing out dirt and piling up brick and rub bish without respect to the ordinance on the subject. To-day the Street Commissioner gives notice that hereafter the ordinance will be enforced. There was a lacMun ber of visitors in town to-day, BtetidlSmb cursions having been run from- Uttftlent points. A BIG IRON JFAILTJBE. The Kerstono Furnace Companr, Reading Obliged ro Suspend Operation A Number of Men Thrown Ont of Employment. rSrXCIAI. TXLXCEAM TO THE DISPXTCH.1 Reading, August 21. Considerable ex citement was created in financial circles this afternoon by the failure of the Keystone Furnace Company of this city. The com pany operated two anthracite blast furnaces on the outskirts of Beading. This afternoon the company, through its President, Henry Bushong, filed a deed of assignment exe cuted in favor of the Beading Trust Com pany. The corporation has been in finan cial difficulty for some time, though in iron circles it was regarded as a safe concern, doing a good business. On Saturday last one of its furnaces closed down, Mr. Bu shong announcing that the company had taken this action to prevent too much accu mulation of pig iron at the beginning of the winter, the iron market, he said, had taken a downward turn in 1874. The corporation executed a mortgage for 5250,000, and eight months ago this was cancelled, giving place to a f 175,000 mort gage in favor of the Beading Trust Com pany. The direct cause of the failure is at tributed to maturing obligations to a large amount, whieh fell due to-morrow. One of tbe furnaces is still running, but it is ex pected that it, too, will blow out shortly. Both furnaces turned out 450 tons of pig iron a week. They are among the best working and most reliable furnaces in the Schuylkill Valley, and, it Is believed, will now pass either into the hands of the Bead ing Iron Company, which is the successor of the Beading Iron Works, or the Beading Bailroad Company. Mr. Bushong was a member of the bank ing firm of Bushong Brothers, which failed 12 years ago for nearly $1,000,000, and this fact is believed to have had something to do with to-day's failure, Mr. Bushong not being able since then to recover bis entire financial standing. A False Cbnrge of Slnrder. SPECIAL TELEOEAM TO THE DISFATCR.l Clarion, August 2L In the suit of H. H. Wilson against Mrs. Minerva Carter, charged with perjury, the jury returned a verdict of guilty. This grew out of her testi mony given in tbe notorious Everhart mur der trial, on which Wilson was held in jail for six weeks. He proved a complete alibi. The verdict was received with ex pressions of general satisfaction in the court room. A Well Suddenly Disappears. Potxstowx, August 21. The well of water on the premises of Edward Warner, near Harmony ville, Chester county, fell out suddenly yesterday while Mrs. Warner was drawing a bucket, of water. The walls as well as the water are entirely gene, and the lady narrowly escaped falling into the hole. An underground lake or river is supposed to be the cause of the collapse. Tbe Reading Iron Works Reorganized. .S11C1AL TXLXOBAlt TO THE DISFATCB.1 Beading, August 21. The Beading iron works has now been thoroughly reor ganized and to-day its sheet mill, the first of its eight establishments, went into full operation. The others are expected to fol low in a week. They will give employ ment to a total of 2,500 men. Natnral Gas for Cadiz. ibitciai. txlxobax to the DisrATcn.1 Cadiz, O., August 21. The Harrison Natural Gas Company was organized here to-day with a capital stock of $25,000, for the purpose of utilizing the gas wells which have been brought in here for fuel and light for the town. A Child Commit! Snlclde. rsrzciAL TELKGKAX TO the nrsrATCit.i Fbankxin, August 2L Henry Harton, aged 10 years, committed suicide here this morning by taking rough on rats. He bad been accused of stealing money from a neigh bor, and killed himself to escape his mother's wrath. EESULT OF A DEEAM. An Old Man Has a Vision That lie Will Find a Body In the River, and It Comes Trne He Will Sccnro a Hcwnrd. AliLENTCvyx, August 21. A singular recovery of the body of a drowned man was made this morning. On Wednesday night of last week Michael McDonnell, a boss mason, employed on the pier of a bridge to cross the Lehigh rive? at Slatjngton, and Benjamin Andreas, an employe of the com pany building the bridge, were drowned in an endeavor to save a coffer dam from being carried away by tbe rise of the river. Fifty men searched for the bodies three days withont success, although stimulated by the reward of $50 for the recovery of the bodies. Nothing was seen of them until this morn ing, when the body of McDonnell, greatly disfigured, was found at Coplay, ten miles below tbe scene of the drowning. The story of tbe finding is curious, and is as follows: Thomas Schaeffer, an old man residing at Laury's station, seven miles below Slating ton, was deeply interested in the fate of the unlortunate man, and last night had a dream in which he saw the body of McDon nell floating in the river at Laury's, and that he and a friend could secure the body and get the reward. So vivid was the vision that when he arose be related his dream and expressed his belief that it would come true. Despite the protests of his family he started for the river early, and on the way met Preston Miller to whom he related his dream. He was so earnest in his belief that he could una mat ooay mat iic proaucu upuu Miller to join him, promising him part of the reward. A feir minutes later they were on the river bank, and there, in the middle of the stream, the body of a man was float ing. They followed for a while, when they met Josiah Taub, who had a boat. Together they rowed out in the river and towed it to Coplav, where it was dragged ashore. The Coroner of Lehigh county held an inquest, and a verdict ot accidental death was ren dered. The body was taken to Slatington, and from there will be sent to New York to morrow. McDonnell was a widower with two chil dren. The three men who found the body will share the reward. The body of Andreas is still missing. ATTEMPTED TO WKECK A TRAIN. Tbe Ainblllous Youth Wbo Wanted to See a First-Class Disaster. Lajtcastek, August 21. Wayne Whit moyer was convicted to-day of attempting to wreck a train of cars on the Beading and Columbia Bailroad, near Fphrata, on July 24. The testimony showed that the defend ant put a tie on the track a few minutes be fore a train was due, because he wanted to see a first-class railroad wreck. Whitmoyer is not yet 21 years old, and was an inmate of the House of Befuge for several years. He was sentenced to the Eastern Penitenti ary for two years and a half. Bitten by a Vicious Pig. Lancaster, August 2L Harry Wat son, Jr., the 6-year-old son of Harry Wat son, is suffering from a bite by a vicious pig. The little fellow was on a visit to bis grandparents, at Unicorn, Drumore town ship, and was playing in the yard. One of tne pigs made an aitacic on mm ana ias tened bis teeth in tbe child's leg, tearing the flesh and inflicting an ugly wound. The wound was at once dressed, but ery sipelas developed and the case has a grave aspect The leg is badly swollen and the child suffers great pain. MJOOM CHINESE. Detcralaf d Warfare In St. Toon's Against Celestial Laundries A Movement la Favor of White Girl Shirt Manipulators. ibtecux tileobau to the msrATcn.1 St. Louis, August 21. The Mongolian shirt manipulators and the American work ing girls are engaged in a deadly war here. The Chinese population of St. Louis has increased so rapidly, and their laundries have spread so continuously, that the "American laundry business has been almost ruined. The Americans formed a combination, and by agitation and newspaper aid have drawn the popula tion of the city into the fight. There was -a big parade of the Americans last night, and the transparencies carried were designed to make a Chinaman blush. One that was cheered along the route had this: "Amer ican girls first; Chinese never." Another had this startling information: "What was found at the Chinese laundry, No. 16 North Ninth street? Ask the police and they will tell ybu. A white woman stupefied by opium." Further down was this statement: "Those who patronize Chinese laundries keep honest girls from workV .Oliver H. C Boss, the President of the association, in speaking about the warfare to be inaugurated against the Celestials, this morning, said: "We are confident of the success ot the movement because of our faith in the American people's sense of justice. When the matter is fairly pre- sentea to tne puDiic, l tniuc tne Chinese will find no profit in the laundry business in St-Louis, and that 2,500 honest girls who are anxious to secure employment, but wbo cannot get it, will be able to get work 'at which they can earn good wages. "There are in St Louis, " continued Mr. Boss, "900 Chinamen, and each .one does about the work of three girls. That means that if there were no Chinese laundries in St -Louis that 2,500 girls wonld be earning $7 and $8 a week in the laundry business." It has been decided that the big parade of the laundry girls will be the most effective way of winning over the young men from the 'heathen. The girls will put on their best, and in the whitest linen will carry their transparencies and parade the town. A Popular President. Paris, August 2L President Carnot started for Fontainebleau to-day,and despite a drenching rain a crowd had assembled at the railroad depot and cheered him to the echo.

H. " Some time ago I lost all my hair in consequence of. measles. After due waiting, no new growth appeared. I then used Ayer's Hair Vigor and my hair grew Thick .and Strong. It has apparently come to stay. The Vigor is evidently a great aid to nature." J. B. Williams, Floresville, Texas. "I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for tbe past four or five years and find it a most satisfactory dressing for the hair. It is all I could desire, being harmless, causing the hair to retain Its natural color, and requiring but a small quantity to render the hair easy to arrange." Mrs. M. A. Bailey, 9 Charles street, Haverhill, Mass. " I have been using Ayer's Hair Vigor for several years, and believe that it has caused my hair to retain its natural color-" Mrs. H. J.

South Pittsbueo,Tenn., August 2L A bold attempt to assassinate Deputy United States Marshal Sam Hughes took place at Wbitewell, 90 miles up the valley from this place, yesterday evening at 6 o'clock.

They told the officer to skip and upon his refusing to do so, one of them, John Hobbs, fired at him, at a space of some 30 yards. Eight of tbe buckshot took effect. Tbe officer pulled his revolver as the would-be assassin ran off, bnt as it refused to work he could not shoot He was not fatally wounded. A daybook in the coat pocket saved his life. A buckshot passed through the book and into his breast, just above tbe heart. Hobbs and the wildcatters were all from Grundy county, and were selling liquor on the mountain, near Wbitewell. They have been defying the officers for some time, and Officer Hughes attempted the arrest with the above consequences.
