The following letter wa written to the
Gazette by Mr. H. Elome Chairman of
the relief fund of Medina, which gives
the best account of affairs at Johnstown,
Ft-of anything that has come to our
notice: .
PirrsBuno, June 5th, 1880,
Editors Gazette: I left Pittsburg
June 5lh, on the early morning train for
Johnstown, Pa., the scene of the great dis
aster ot May 81st. After the train left
Bolivar, 20 miles west of Johnstown, we
begun to see the effects of the great cakm
ity in the shape of debrlt in huge piles,
where it had caught on tome trees or oth
er obstruction that held it until the water
receded, consisting ot remnants of frame
buildings, wagons, buggies, wheelbarrows,
lurniture, bedding, stoves and clothing.
At one place there was an upright piano
open, and it looked a though the player
had Just left It A mile or more further
along was a raft with dead bod let, then
dead animal a span of hone attached
to a wagon looking as though they were
raised upon their feet ready to be driven
off coal can and car trucks washed mile
below Johnstown.
When I walked over the railroad bridge
at Johnstown to the Penn. depot the riew
that met my eyes beggar description.
Walking over the debrlt were two men
with a stretcher carrying a dead body to
the morgue to be prepared for burial.
Alter the body wat cleaned and put on
the board, as no one could recognize It, It
wat hurried to the grave and marked on
known. After leaving the depot 1 crossed
the rope bridge and proceeded to the
headquarter of the Chief Dictator Scott,
and a hit office It a very busy place I did
not tarry long, but asked him what he
needed most Hit tntwer wu: "Ready
made provisions, cooked ready to serve,
bedding, tuch as good warm blankets, &c
There i plenty of money in the hand
of the committee at Pittsburg to meet the
bill of the committee, a Pittsburg I the
headquarter lor the direction of the work.
The sufferers at Johnstown have no need
of money at present, as there are no stores
of any description, and those that desire
to leave are carried free by the Penna.
railroad and life Baltimore ft Ohio. The
foremen of the different gangs of laborer
working on the debrlt think it will take
tea thousand men thirty and may be forty
days to clear away the debrit and get the
place In presentable shape. The work Is
progressing slowly on account of not be
ing organized, but from this on there will
be a better system and more headway will
be made.
I wandered around over the debrit
watching the workmen taking out dead
bodiea and carrying them to the morgue,
The building left, which are partially
destroyed, have from two to four feet of
sand and mud In them, are being shoveled
out and got ready to be occupied at toon
as made safe. I walked over the debris In
the street nearly to the top of the
housee, thence around to the gorge above
the railroad bridge, which la claimed to
be from 10 to 13 feet thick, and from the
appearance It would teem as though the
safety ol the community demanded that
the torch be applied and everything buni'
ednp. There are lots of queer thing to
be seen. Where the men are working
they come across lamp that are Just as
good as the day they lelt the store for the
home; washbowl and pitcher aettlng on
the rocks, no break in them, that were
washed a mile oi more down the river.
I walked from Johnstown through
where Woodvale stood to Conemaugh,
where the Pcna'a round bouse wu which
wu swept away with 41 engines, washed
down the rtvei tome of them nearly three
miles, and they are lying on their tide
with nearly four feet of itnd and rocks
and gravel around them. Where the Con
emaugh fair ground wu, la the channel
of the river. Just Imagine where ten days
ago everytnlng wu green, gardens grow.
Ing nicely, and everyone busy In fact the
valley wu u busy as the bees la a hive
everything is now desolate, looking like
the rocky bed of a dry creek.' ;
The Question it uked, what were the
passenger trains doing on the tide track
at Conemaugh f They were tide-tracked
there because the tracks were washed out
and they couldnot get any further, and
this about 10 o'clock In the morning,
nearly 7 hour before the dam burst.
It looks to me u though there mutt have
been a hurricane came down the valley In
front of the SO ft. wave of water, as the
wooden timet uret were demolished be
fore the water reached them. This Is
what some of the people who were on the
side of the mountain tay who were look
ing at it. . ; They say they never beard such
a noise la their lives. One mm got caught
in the water and rode down stream on a
log which struck a brick church, knocked
a hole In it, and he landed Inside with a
broken arm. He said he had not been In
a church in ten years, and had no desire
to go again under such circumstances.
On all sldet you could hear the people
praise Governor Foraker and the great
State of Ohio. '
After looking over the situation I came
to the conclusion that the best disposition
to be made of the money so willingly con
tributed by the citizens of Medina, wu to
turn it over to the relief committee at Pitts
burg, u through them it would do the
most good to the greatest number of suf.
forers, as they have brought the sick,
wounded and a large number of the home
less to Pittsburg to be cared for; also have
a committee at Johnstown looking after
their wants there. The mill owners are
looking after their own property at their
own expense, so that your money will not
go to them. .
I should think there were thirty acres or
Johnstown that everything was swept
away, and the entire valley between
Johnstown and the South Fork is one
mass of sand and rock, so the farmer can
not raise anything this year. It is also
estimated that there wu from thirteen to
fifteen thousand dumb animals swept
away, so you can see the destruction wu
complete. Medina Gazette.
