Mr. John F. Miller, general superintendent
of the Pennsylvania lines west of PitUbnrg,
came here on a special train with a party to
view the wreck. Mr. Miller and his assistant
ent all over tbe district on foot, in com
pany with Attorney Gibson, of the J-ffer-aouviile,
Madison and Indianapolis road.
Miller said lie bad never, in bis long experi
ence as a railroad man, witnessed such de
struction except at Johnstown and here.
Tbe Post finds fault with Tbe Courier
Journal for telegrepfaing all over tbe
country that Louisville is able to take care
of herself. Tbe Post says: "In the face of
a loss which can not fall far below f .UWi.raju,
with an area of ruined homes and business
bouses amounting to gixty squares, with
hundreds of families' left penniless, foodless
arid homeless, Tbe Conner Journal says
'We are able to take care of these people
and we decline your proffered aid.' "

stories as sleeping a part men ta for tbe hotel
servants. This three story building, right
under the east wall of tbe hotel. Wis totally
demolished and not a timber left a doz-m
feet higher than tbe ground Jts inmates
were killed. The great hotel shook from
roof to cellar with tbe force of tbe shock,
but it was spared.

Tbe young lady was known to ber friends as
