/vnd It Is Certain That Hundreds
Were Drowned in the Penn sylvania Floods. A Panorama of Horror the Deluged District That Can not Be Depicted. Dead Bodies Strewn Along the Banks and Among the Debris of Wrecked Homes. Over 175 Corpses Taken from the Water at Nineveh Alone —The Terrible Details. JOHNSTOWN, Pa., June 2.—The reser voir above the town burst about 5 p. m. Friday, and augmented by the streams llready heavily swollen by the late rains, rushed down upon this city carry ing death to hundreds and mis ery to thousands. The waters are now subsiding rapidly, but as yet it is impossible to obtain anything like exact information concerning the extent of the disaster that has visited this city and the district surrounding. It is no exaggeration to say that there are mourners in every family. Thousands are missing, it is certain that Hundreds Have Beeu I.ost, and while many of those who are now missing and who are mourned as dead have doubtless been saved, the final death roll will beyond doubt be of ap palling length. It is impossible to describe briefly the suddenness with which the disaster came. A warning sound was heard at Conemaugli a few minutes before the rush of waters came, but it was attrib uted to some meteorological disturbance and no troubla was borrowed because of the thing unseen. As the low, rumbling noise increased in volume, however, and came nearer, a suspicion of danger began to force itself upon even the bravest, which was in creased to a certainty a f*w minutes later, when with a rush the mighty stream spread out in width, and then there was no time to do anything to save themselves. Many of the unfortunates •were Whirled Into the Stream before they could turn around. Men, women and children were struggling in the stream, and it is thought that many of them nerer reached Johnstown, only a mile or two below. At Johnstown a similar scene was enacted, only on a much larger scale, as the population is greater, and the sweeping whirlpool rushed into a denser mass of humanity. The imagination of the reader can better depict the. spectacle than the pen of the writer can giva. it.... It was a twilight of terror, and the gathering shade^'of even ing closed in on A Panorama of Horrors that has few parallels in the history of casualties. Even the thought of such a thing as rescue was madness, and the agony of the struggling, drowning vic tims found its response in the bosoms of those who stood wringing their hands in helpless horror, in view of their friends. Now and then the waters would dash' against one side of the mountain and then to the other side, carrying with them their human freight, and this di version enabled those on the banks to rescue many. It will be found that on this account many will be returned to their homes and friends who are now ac counted lost. The list of dead is there fore a matter of conjecture, and will not not be definitely known for many hours. Searchers are out everywhere from Johnstown to Blairsville. HIGHEST EVER KNOWN. Houses, Barns and Whole Forests of Trees Sweeping Down the Conemaugh. BOLIVAR, Pa., June 2.—The water is higher here than was ever known, and two-story houses, barns, stables," whole forests of trees, outhouses, smokehouses, railroad bridges, county bridges, rafts, skiffs and driftwood by the acre, on all of which imploring hands were held out to those on the banks, willing but impo tent to help, have floated down the swol len torrent of the Conemaugh. Informa tion received is meager, but for the most part accurate. At Lockport, two miles east, more than twenty people h&ve been taken from the flood. The first great rush of waterr reached hero at 7 o'clock p. m. It came like a frenzied whirl pool, and before they could realize it they were in its grasp. Fortunately the people living on the low-lying ground escaped. At 7:30 o'clock a great pile of driftwood was swept along, and from it came Shriek Upon Shriek for Help. The terrified spectators on the shore saw three women on the raft, to one of whom were clinging two children, neither of whom was apparently more than au in fant. The rapidity "of the current and the position of the raft in the stream, together with the lack of facilities for rescuing, precluded the possibility of even thinking in the matter, and the raft passed out of sight, the screams of the women and childred blending in their ears long after the raft was around the bend. The stream then became Thickly Strewn with Humanity. men, women and children clinging to all sorts of temporary salvation, and two men and a woman clung madly to the tops of huge trees, the men emulating the females in their shrieks for help. Just at dark a lad was noticed clinging to a log. James Curry secured a long line and ran to the river bank. The noose of the lasso fell over the head and shoulders, and a moment later the drenched little fellow was hauled to the bank. He was soon restored, and stated that his name was Edward Harten, 13 years of age. He had lived with his father and grandfather and mother in Cambria Citj, apart of Johnstown. At 4 o'clock their home had been Caught In the Volume of Water let looee bv the bursting of the dam. They had all climbed upon amass of driftwood and were carried along. Their ra'* went tn oiecet against a bridge pier air/ he h*l«ot sMn Ms relative* since, but thought they were drowned. THE FLOOD SUBSIDING. all PITTSBURG, June 2.—The Times' 10 a. m. extra edition has the following from Bolivar, Pa.: At New Florence seven bodies have been taken from the water apd debris on the banks. One body has also been taken from the river at this point, that of a young girl. None of them have been identified. The whole country between here and New Florence is under water and houses, Bridge* and Buildings Fill the Fields and even Derch upon the hillsides all the way to Johnstown. The banks of the river are lined with people who are look ing as well for booty as for bodies. Much valuable property was carried away in the houses, as well as from houses not washed away. The River Has Fallen Again to the channel, and nothing in the stream except its red, angry color tells of, the terrible scenes recently enacted. It has fallen fully twenty feet since midnight, and by night it will have attained its normal depth at all points. From Greensburg to Sang Hollow, the limit of the present trouble. Scores of People Throng the Stations, pleading with the conductors *of even gravel trains to take them aboard, as they are almost frenzied with fear and apprehension in regard to their friends wno live at or near Johnstown. Strong men are as tearful as the women who join in the request. Pitiable Sights and Scenes multiply more rapidly than cross ties. The Conemaugh is one great valley- of mourning. Those who have not Tost their friends have lost their homes or their substance, and apparently the grief for the one is as poignant as for the other. Albert Harvey, who left Conemaugh Lake in the evening, has just arrived, having tramped through hills and moun tains. He says the great volume of water struck at Johnstown about 3:30 in the afternoon. It did not find the people unprepared, as they had notice from South Fork that the dam was threaten ing to go. Many, however, disregarded the notice and remained in their houses in the lower part of the city and were caught before they could get out, and the water was on them. The lioss at Nineveh. NINEVAH, Pa., June 2.—At this hour the Pennsylvania railroad track is clear and all right up to here, but nothing can go east of here. There were forty-seven bodies seen passing here in the river from 3 to 7:30 p. m. The loss of life must have been appalling. Here some fifteen houses are wrecked and a number of inmates from the agricultural dis tricts injured. The loss here is not so heavy as at other places. A Whirlpool of Death. SANG HOLLOW, June 2.—The current in the Conemaugh is always rough, but with the waters of Friday added it was transferred into a violent whirlpool. It was at this point that a number of the people met their fate. Superintendent Pitcairn, of the Pennsylvania railroad, stayed there for a few hours in the after noon and reports having counted 105 persons before it" got dark. How many passed after dark, no one can tell. Of the above number forty-seven were seen passing New-Florence, and some of these never reached Lockport and Bolivar. The conjecture is more than probable that fifty, people were drowned between Sang Hollow and New Florence. Rescuers at Work. Superintendent Pitcairn,who has spent the entire night in assisting those afflicted by the flood, went home at 3 o'clock a. m. Before he left he issued an order to all Pennsylvania railroad employes to keep a sharp lookout for bodies both in the fiver and in the bushes, and to re turn them to their friends. Assistant Superintendent Trump is still on the ground near Sang Hdllow, direct ing the movements of gravel and con struction trains, which are arriving as fast as they can be filled up and started out. The road-bed of both the Pennsylvania railroad and West Penn are badly dam aged, and it will cost the latter, espe cially from Bolivar Junction to Salts burg, many thousands of dollars to re pair injuries to embankments alone. One Huudred Bodies of Victims at Nin eveh. A special to The Leader from Greens burg. Pa., says: At 10 o'clock a. m. one hundred bodies of victims of the flood are lying at Nineveh station awaiting identification. Only 200 hundred houses remain standing in the city of Johns town, and the water, at this writing, is thirty feet deep on the main streets. At Sang Hollow up to 3 o'clock in the afternoon, according to the latest relia ble reports, twenty-one dead bodies were taken out on the railroad side, and on the other side of the river six more bod ies were caught. Six hundred oil tanks rushed past about 5 o'clock. The water at this point was thirty-five feet deep actual measurement. Trainmaster Edward Pitcairn tele graphed from Nineveh to the superin tendent at 7:36: "There has been but thirty or fort}' men, women and chil dren rescued alive, and we took out about forty bodies at this place." An other dispatch to Superintendent Pit cairn states that as the waters are reced ing tiie bodies of victims of the flood can be seen lodged in trees, and with arms and legs protruding from the debris. The Awful List Increasing. PiTTSBCRG, Pa., June 2.—A telegram from Nineveh says that up to noon 175 bodies have been taken from the river at that point. A THRILLING STORY. An Kye Witness Tells of Some of the Scenes at Johnstown. PITTSBURG, June 2.—S. J. Herron, solicitor for The Times, left Johnstown at 2 o'clock p. m. and has just arrived in frliia city. Mr. Herron tells a graphic story of the disaster that fell on the mnnnt«in city. All of Thursday after noon and night rain poured down in a deluge. The little mountain streams swelled into torrents,pouring their waters into the Conemaugh river that passes directly through the center of the city. Soon the banks of the river overflowed and the Streets Began to Disappear Iwnfth the rapidly increasing current. Houaes and bridges from above the city were swept away by the flood and added largely to the damage further down. The water roee so rapidly that many peo ple could not escape from their homes and ran to the upper stories, from which waw raariwvf hv tQM| ridtD* horwe ,V .0 ana mules. Joseph Ross, a teamster, had in charge a pair of m#es. He mounted one of them to aid some peo ple. The mule fell into an excavation carrying Ross with it and he was drowned. Watching Their Homes Go. When I left the people were gathered on the mountain sides looking sadly at theif homes being washed away. The sweeping away of four or five large bridges added greatly to the loss of the town. Twelve car loads cf iron were run out onto the Cambria bridge in an attempt to save that structure. The waters gathered strength and Swept Bridge, Cars and Iron away as if they were straws. But one bridge remains and it is badly damaged. Lumber was swept down with the flood in vast quantities. It is estimated that 1,000,000 or more feet passed through the town during the morning. The railroad depots were thronged with victims of the flood, but were rescued in skiffs. Piano boxes and rafts were used for this purpose. All Trains Stopped. All trains on tho Pennsylvania railroad and Baltimore and Ohio railroad are discontinued, the tracks being submerged for miles. At 2 o'clock the water was still rising and tho people were panic stricken. Three citizens of Pittsburg are known to have been drowned. They occupied a house just below the dam, a short distance above Johnstown. Their names are Thomas Fallon, James Tight and a telegraph operator, name un known. A Kit of Beal Heroism. BOLIVAR, Pa., June 2.—A bit of hero ism is related by one of the telegraph op erators at Bolivar. He says: "I was standing on the river bank about 7:30 o'clock p. m., when a raft swept into view. It must have been the floor of a dismantled house. Upon it were grouped two women and a man. They were evi dently his mother and sister, for both clung to him as i£ stupefied with fear. AB they whirled under the bridge here, the man could have saved himself if he had wished, by simply reaching up his hand and catching the timbers of the structure. He appeared to see this him self and the temptation must have been strong for him to do so, but in a second more he was 6een to resolutely shake his head and clasp the women tighter around their waist. Ropes were'thrown out from the tree tops, but they were unable to catch them, though they grasped for the lines eagerly enough. Then a tree caught in their raft and dragged after. In this way they swept out of view. It Was an Awful Sight. BOLIVAR, Pa., June 2.—Harry Fisher, a telegraph operator at Bolivar, says: '•We knew nothing of the disaster until we noticed the water in the river slowly rising. Within three hours the water in the river rose at least twenty feet. Shortly before 6 o'clock ruins of houses, beds, household utensils, barrels and kegs came floating past the bridge. At 8 o'clock the water was within six feet of the road-bed of the bridge. The wreckage floated past without diminish ing for at least two hours. Then it be gan to lessen and night coming suddenly upon us, we could see no more. The wreckage was floating by for a long time before the first living persons passed. Fifteen people that I-saw were carried down by the river. One of those, a boy, was saved, and three of them were drowned just directly below the town. It was an awful sight, and one that I will not soon forget." Contributions Pouring in—More Wanted. PITTSBURG, Pa., June 2.—With the first edition, the times headed a popular subscription fund for the relief of the victims of the terrible catastrophe by giving $500 and makes an appeal for out side aid. Although the edition has been on the streets but a short time, contribu tions in small amounts from laboring men and shop girls, are coming in with gratifying results. The United Press announces that any subscription to this fund may be sent to The Pittsburg Times and will be for warded to places most needed. Fugitives Returning. JOHNSTOWN, Pa., June 2.—The fugi tives are returning to the place where a few hours ago they were happy and prosperous, but where all is now desola tion, and in a few hours more the work of systematically searching for the vic tims of the flood will begin. The water is still too high to oven attempt to esti mate the extent of the disaster, but the city is a complete wreck, and it is cer tain the loss of life will be immense. MORE FLOODS COMING. York, Pa., iu Danger from tlie Kising Waters—The Alarm Given. YORK, Pa., June 2.—Thursday even ing rain began failing and since then there has been a succession of heavy and long showers. All the streams in the country are swollen, and fields, roads and houses flooded at Bentzett's on the Little Conewaungo, the water readied a height of sixteen feet above low water mark. The mill was flooded. The dam contained a large amount of saw logs which were washed away. At Spring Grove, on the west branch of the Cador ous, southwest of here, the stream has overflowed almost everything. Great excitement prevails there, everyone Kxpecting tli« Targe Dam to Burst, which would cause great damage. It is raining hard yet ana the water is rising at the rate of ten inches an hour. On the south branch the stream is rapidly rising. All this immense body of water must pass the city and it cannot be esti mated as to what damage will occur. The police have notified the people living in the lower section of the city to pre pare for the worst. The Cadorous in this city is about six feet above low water mark, and rapidly rising. Should the situation become serious the fire alarm bells will be rung. The Flood Is Coming. LATER.—A general alarm ha* just been sounded on the bells of the city. HARPER'S FERRY SU8MERGED. Water Is Teu Feet Deep in tlie Maiu Street—Building* Rocking in the An gry Flood. WASHINGTON, June 2.—The signal ser vice .observer at Harper's Ferrv, YV. Va., reported as follows at 8 a. m.: "River here within two feet of being as high as in 1877 and still rising. Water in Shen andoah street eight to ten feet deep. My office is rocking and I am making preparations to abandon it. Great dam age to railroads here. All kinds of heavy drift running." A Tale of Sorrow Tersely Told. CHICAGO, June 2.—Capt. J. E. Fitz- patrick, of the Central detail, received the following dispatch from his brother, who was chief of police of Cambria Burrough, located across the river from Johnstown, Pa., the scene of the terri ble reservoir deluge. It reads: J. E. Fitzpatricl*,Central detail: Rose, her husband and child, and my wife and children were all drowned. The bodies are not yet recovered. Some of Bob's children are also in the flood. Peter Fitzpatrick, Sang Hollow, Pa." The persons referred to in the message are Rose Brady, Capt. Fitzpatrick's sis ter James Brady, the husband Ellen Brady, daughter Mary Fitzpatrick and her three children, and two boys and one girl. "Bob" refers to another brother living there t^ho had nine children. How many of these were drowned is not known. A Flood at New Bethlehem. NEW BETHLEHEM, Pa., June 2.—The heavy rains in Jefferson, Elk and Clear field counties, particularly, are causing incalculable damage along the Sandy Lick, North Fork and Red Bank. Du bois dam was swept out and the deluge of water was terrible. This morning Waintvright & Bryant's dam and boom at Brookville was carried away. Their loss will reach $200,000. Every public building trom Dubois to New Bethlehem is carried away. At Reynoldsville the water is higher than any previous flood, and mail com munication is shut off. The lumbermen are almost frantic. Carrying Mills, Houses and Bridges tvith It. PITTSBURG, Pa., June 2,—A Freeport, Pa., special to The Leader says: Four teen million feet of lumber has broken away from the booms, in Red Bank creek at Dubois, Reynoldsville, Brook ville and New Bethlehem. The creek is swollen into the proportions of a river, expected to reach Freeport about 7 o'clock. Should it be anything like the proportions represented the destruction of every hridge, as well as other valua ble property along the Allegheny river is almost certain to follow. Floods ID Western New York. BUFFALO, N. Y., June 2.—Dispatches from Western New York report heavy floods. The New York Central trains from the east were all on time, but on the Erie and Lackawanna roads affairs were different. A washout occurred near Corning and all trains were de layed. The Lackawanna trains are all late. The Western New York and Penn sylvania road is badly delayed. The Buffalo and Rochester trains came in on time, but the south end of that road find the Philadelphia road are badly washed. Olean, S. V., Flooded. OLE AX, N. Y., June 2.—The waters of the Allegheny river are the highest known in years. "Several streets in, the lower part of the city are Hooded, and many houses are filled with water. Large quantities of lumber anil logs are being swept away. The losses will be heavy.

June—Tlie floods worked terrible devastation here last night. Mrs. Prosper Miller's brick house at the south part of the village was washed out and fell into the creek The Erie bridge is out and no trains are being run. Charleston, W. Va., in I»uj «-r. CHARLESTON. W. Va., June 1.—The Big Kanawa is on a rampage and this place is in danger of being submerged. The Chesapeake and Ohio railroad bridge lias been swept away. STARKEY SUSPECTED. A Strong Case Against tli« Montreal Man lie Will He Kxtraditetl. CHICAGO, June 2.—A morning paper sa£s the extradition of William J. Starkey for complicity in the Cronin murder has been determined upon, and the prepara tions are now fast advancing for his arrest in Canada. It is authoritatively said that a stronger circumstantial case against Starkey is in the hands of the state's attorney and the private detect ives in the employ of Dr. Cronin's friends than has yet developed against Coughlin, P. O. Sullivan and Woodruff, the three already indicted for the murder. As Threads in the Web of circumstance several things are pointed out. Starkey was a member of the Columbia club, or Camp 96 of the Clan-na-Gael, and a member also of the "family party"' in that camp. He was an enemy, personal and factional, of Dr. Cronin. He was charged with being an instrument in the hands of the men try ing to ruin Cronin, as related in the pamphlet "Is It a ConspiracyV' He was absent from Toronto the week of the murder on business, it is charged, con nected with the escape of the assassins. He was at the bottom of the bogus inter views concocted by Long in Toronto, in tended, it is asserted, to mislead the searchers for Dr. Cronin. More than all this, comes the intelligence that fresh information has been dug up by the pri vate detective's of Starkey's complicity in the crime. Woodruff Weakening. CHICAGO, June 2.—Woodruff, the horse thief under indictment for complicity in the murder of Dr. Cronin, has weakened. He said this morning that he might con clude to tell all lie knows about the Cronin case. "I have not decided just what to do. If I thought it would do me any good I would tell everything, but I am not so sure about that." It might not do me any good, and it might get me out of this fix. I am not worrying much. Si* Crushed Under a Fall lug Tree. NEW ORLEANS, June 2.—About o'clock Wednesday evening, during a storm on Rex Bayou, in De Soto parish.

A MANDANI1IAN WAR Ferocious Battle Between Sipuz and Rees—Only One Killed, But Many Wounded. A Heavy Fall of Snow Reported from Eastern Wis consin. The Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad Soon to Be Sold— Northwestern News. MANDAN*, S. Dm June 2.—A band of Sioux Indians, camped just west of Mandan, were attacked by fifteen or twenty Rees. The fight was hot and lasted an hour. One Sioux was killed and several wounded. This is the first Indian fight here for years. SNOW IN WISCONSIN. A Heavy Fall of the Beautiful Reported Throughout the State, MILWAUKEE, June 2.—Early in the morning large, heavy, moist flakes of snow fell in this city until the ground was covered. Trains arriving early on the St. Paul from the north were covered with snow. The temperature in this city was 33 degrees. Railroad men re port over afoot of snow south of Fond du Lac, on thej Northwestern road. Crops have been considerably spoiled by the late frosts. Reports from all parts of the state are that the snow fall was fairly heavy, with cold, unseasonable weather. In Sauk county small vegeta tion suffered very considerably. In many localities of the state the straw berry crop was completely destroyed. In the tobacco district of Southern Wis consin the seedling tobacco is coming out all right, but all the plants that were set have been killed by frost. Small grains and fruits are badly damaged in the tier of lake shore counties. In the potato counties of Central .Wisconsin the field potatoes will come out all right, despite the severe frosts. The fruit and berry crop suffers most in Wisconsin. NEENAH. Wis., June 1.—The snow storm here lasted about two hours. The crops have been badly damaged of late by the heavy frosts, "but it is thought this snow storm will kill them outright. Railroad men report afoot of snow south of Fond du Lac. The snow changed to rain later on, and now it is raining hard. MADISON, Wis., June 1.—In the east ern and northern parts of this county snow fell to the depth of two inches and at Portage four inclis fell. Cereals All Right. ST. PAUL, June 2.—Specials to the Pioneer Press from all sections of Min nesota and Dakota report in substance that aside from an occasional frosting the crops appear to be in a flourishing condition. The wlieather remains ex ceptionally cool, which is keeping grain from growing rapidly, but from no dis trict ie there really discouraging reports. On the contrary the best yield ever known is confidently expected. During the week Southern Dakota has been visited by general rains, which have hushed the} complaints of dry weather which have been coming iri from that section for the past week or two Messrs. Scott, Clark and Hope, of the Omaha, have returned from their tour of inspection over the Western division of the road. Mr. Scott said that the trip extended out a considerable distance into Dakota and that he and his fellow offi cials paid particular attention to the growing crops. He says they never looked better. It is true there lias been some little frost, but it has done no dam age to the cereals. Wheat, if anything, is the better for it, and corn is not suffi ciently high to be damaged at all. SOON TO BE SOLD. Tlie Minneapolis and St. Loni* Railroad Will Be Disposed of at tlie June Term of the United States Court. FORT DODGE, Iowa, June 2.—It is learned here that the Minneapolis and St. Louis railway, now in the hands of Receiver Truesdale, will soon be sold at a United States master's chancery sale to satisfy the claim of bondholders. The appointment of Truesdale, a Washburn man, as receiver, indicates that the Rock Island stockholders are in the minority. It is generally believed that the road will be purchased by Washburn and in corporated with the "Soo."' which will extend it, making it either an Omaha or Kansas City line. This report is confirmed by A. E. Clark, attorney for the Iowa division. The sale will take place at the June term of the United States court. THE FIRE RECORD. Two Faribault Blaze*. FARIBAULT, Minn.. June 2.—Fire started in the basement of F. A. Theo pold's store, in which a large amount of kerosene was stored, and it appeared for a time as if a general conflagration would ensue. The' fire soon gotten un der control, with a loss on stock, mostly by smoke and water, of between $7,000 and $1(U*0. What is supposed to have been an in cendiary blaze partially destroyed the barn in tlie rear of the United States hotel. Loss about $2,000. A number of valuable horses were in the barn, but were rescued. Iuini*nK' Wood Yard *'ire. MESOMOXIE. Wis.. June 2.—Knapp, Stout & Co.'s wood yard, east of the steam mill, caught fire Thursday and is burning. A steam engine and two com panies of firemen from Eau Claire came over yesterday, and are still here. The fire is under 'control, but owing to the depth of filling of saw dust and slabs it is aard to put it out. About 2,000 cords of wood have been burned. A Manufactory Damaged. Arpi.ETOX, Wis., June 2.—The Apple ton Manufacturing company, manufac turers of farm implements, caught fire and was damaged to the amount of $30, 000. One hundred men will be thrown out of employment. The concern was owned by Paul J. Van Nortwick, of Batavia, Ills.
