THE" EITTSBUIIG- DISPATCH
SUNDAY ' JUNE A2.M889.
'wisaows, messages of others in all sorts of
, amounts, from
Many Thousands of Dollars
to smaller sums, came thick and fast, and
some good citizens were so eager in their
kindness that without waiting the citizens'
sieeting they handed in their offerings of
cash at the counting room at once.
The promptness of the Pittsburg papers in
spreading before the public early and fnll
reports ofthe dimensions of the catastrophe
was of inestimable value in arousing every
body to the need for quick action.
One of the most painful features of the
day was the uncertainty of so many people
in Pittsburg and Allegheny about the fate
of their friends and relatives in Johnstown,
Cambria City and vicinity. The strain
upon them was something terrible, all the
more so because of their certainty that it
would be hours, perhaps, indeed, long days
before it might be relieved.
Such an experience was never had locally,
and the consciousness prevails that the in
tense phases of it have yet to be felt. As
the sense of individual bereavements
emergefromthe general shock, which is
sure to be the case when all the particulars
of loss of life become gradually but pre
cisely known, the blow of the death ange 1
will indeed be felt in all its bitterness over
Xearly 847,000 Raised nt n Single Meeting
Remarkable Sponmnlctj An Effort
to Squelch Sunday Benefits
There was a spontaniety about the meet
ing at old City Hall that was more refresh
ing than even the proceeds, as it shewed
iow strongly the heart of the public
throbbed in pity for the mountain sufferers,
and the crowd testified its appreciation of
the man who gave S5 as well as that of the
one who gave $5,000, and the gratifying
leature was the fact that so considerable a
portion of the donation was in checks and
money immediately available. The hall
would have held more people, but those
"that Tere there were enthusiastic enough to
!0 a great way toward filling it otherwise.
At the' hour appointed, Mr. Wm.
jMcCreery, of the Pleasant Valley Sail way
Company, called the meeting to order and
.suggested Mayor "Wm. JlcCollin for Chair
man. Mr. Wm. E. Thompson was made
treasurer and just here it is pertinent to
state that his postoffice box is No. 193, Pitts
burg, and any one who wishes to swell the
iund can do so-by addressing Mr. Thomp
son. Thaioliowing named gentlemen were

Miller, H. C. Frick, James McCrea,.H- X. Gour
ley and David Robinson, with W. B. Thomp
son, treasurer, was appointed to look after the
collections and disbursements of the money
and provisions contributed.
Mr. Bobert Pitcaim was asked to urge
the necessities of the case on those who
might not have .grasped the situation in its
entirety, and he said: "There is not much
time to talk, but for the credit of Pittsburg
X want to tell yon what I can of the situa
tion. It is the greatest calamity ever known
in this section. There is
Ko Connection East
of Johnstown, and all immediate relief to
the stricken people must come from this
side. The thriving city of Johnstown is
wiped out of existence, and the people who
are still living are hungry and shivering in
wet clothing, and relief to be of use must
te immediate. The Pennsylvania Bailroad
Company will give all the assistance possi
ble, but strong, willing men are wanted to
7work to alleviate the misery, and none other
are wanted, as any others would be a posi
Mayor McClellin referred to a dispatch
sent by Solicitor Martin from Sang Hollow,
asking for help of all kinds and 200 coffins.
The Mayor stated that he had ordered the
The -enthusiasm was intense and was in
creased when Mr. H. M. Long announced
the action of the Pittsburg Petroleum Ex
change, and at the announcement that Mr.
John Bindley bad offered the use of the
Exposition building to house sufferers.
Thus far all went one way, but at this
juncture Mr. "Wilt, of the Opera House,
accompanied his announcement of "100 do
nation with the statement that the proceeds
of a matinee to be given to-day wonld be
donated, which led Bev. John Pox to offer
Resolved, That it is the sense of this meeting
that the managers of the theaters be requested
sot to cive-their benefits for the sufferers on
Mr. .Pox said it would be unlawful, and
appealed to Mayor McCallin, who agreed
with him, but there was strong dissent and
confnsion, during which Mr. Wilt said
something to the effect that ,Mr. Wishart
would scarce .object, under the circum
stances. Mr. George "W. Morris, manager of the
Trench Spring Company, backed Wilt, and
said that in the name of humanity no objec
tion should be offered.
Calling for a Second.
Mr. Pox ..yigorously called a number of
times for a second to his resolution, being
determined to "bear witness," and finally
:pt a chorus of them, and the Mayor put it
toNrote and declared it carried, amid the
dissent of hundreds, who said it wasn't.
Subsequently Messrs. Pox and "Wilt had a
colloquy, which seemed to be good humored
Communications were read from St
Paul's ..Orphan Asylum volunteering to
care for children orphaned by the calamity,
and from Mercy Hospital offering its ser
vices to the wounded. Every announce
ment of this kind was received with cheers.
Bev. P. Bouff tendered the services ofthe
German Orphan Asylum, and stated that
le. himself, was a strong man and experi
enced, and wonld give his services gratis, if
seeded at Johnstown.
Amotion by Mr. Wilt that pastors of
- churches in other cities be requested by the
Mavor to ask for collections' in their
f .churches was passed. A wild yell went np
nwhen the Mayor announced that dona-
tions ilready received exceeded $50,000.
The mistake was occasioned by the
rush xhen the donations were
handed in. for instance, several people
went forward and gave their names for con
siderable amounts, $100 t o $500, and then
on second thought wrote their checks for
them and handed them to the treasurer, and
the amount wonld be frequently called out

The total amount thus contributed alone
footed up $46,932 10 as taken from the Treas
urer; but iu the hurry it was doubtful just
how near the footing came to correctness, as
the monev was showered on Mr. Thompson,
making it impossible for him to note and
count it at the same time. It is known that
when the footing was made two contribu
tionsamounting to $1,140 got jumbled in the
mass and were not counted. Even while the
counting was goingon he was taking 5, 510
and $20 bills and giving credit at the same
time, and when leaving the hall Mr.Thorap
son encountered a number of contributors
on the stairway and took his last $5 bill on

sooner it is given the more useful it will be.
Prom the time the meeting was called to
order until the close, the money poured in
at the rate of over $300 a minute, and it was
remarked that never before was there such
desire manifested by people of small meajis
to contribute, and many of them strenu
ously objected to giving their names, ask
ing that their offerings be marked cash. In
most instances Treasurer Thompson insisted
on getting the names.
It was announced at the meeting that Mr.
T. C. Jenkins had donated a carload of
groceries valued at $3,000.

Prominent Physicians Enlist In Humanity's

tho Word of Command They
Subscribe Over 400.
In response to the call for a physicians'
meeting for the relief of the sufferers ofthe
flooded district, issued by Br. J. A. Old-
shue yesterday, 82 physicians of this city
Scene on South Fork Lake.
and Allegheny met in the rooms of the
Chamber of Commerce at 5 o'clock last
Dr. Oldshue presided, and Dr. B.. "W.
Stewart was elected secretary. Upon call
ing the meeting to order, Dr. Oldshue ex
plained the object of the call, which he
said was to procure volunteers to go to the
scene ofthe terrible calamity nt a moment's
notice when required. Every physician
present at once unhesitatingly expressed
his willingness to go to the front as a volun
teer whenever needed.
The President then called for suggestions
from the members present, in reply to which
Dr. Hubelton, of Allegheny, offered a reso
lution to the effect that each physician, on
going to Johnstown, should provide himself
with a case of surgicafinstruments, stimu
lants, necessary medicines and bandages.
The resolution was promptly seconded, but
before the motion was put the question was
raised where the member going should pro
cure the necessary articles. The Chair ex
plained that the Chamber of Commerce
would furnish such material on requisition.
The ' resolution was then unanimously
D"r. McCann then took the floor and
moved that each member present contribute
something toward the immediate relief of
the sufferers, and that the County Commis
sioners be requested to open the public
buildings, such as hospitals and orphan
asylums of the city, for the reception of such
of the sick, injured and homeless that might
be brought here. Both motions were carried
A motion was adopted that. the chair ap
point a committee to confer'with the Ex
ecutive Committee of the Citizens' Associa
tion as to what articles might be needed in
this or any other emergency., Miss Ploing,
a nurse residing No. 20 Congress street, was
present at the meeting and volunteered to
go to Johnstown whenever her services'
would be required.
Dr. "W. D. Kearns was elected treasurer,
and after adjournment the contributions for
immediate assistance were taken. In a
short while $431 had been collected, which
will be turned in to the general relief fund.
The gentlemen who so generously came
forward at the call for volunteers are among
the foremost physicians in both cities. They

Delay of Trains Filled Pittsburg; With
Strancera Relief nt Last A Cir
cuitous Ronle to the Bust.
Eastern bound passengers could be found
in nearly every hotel in the city yesterday..
They were of all grades and classes, from
the most aristocratic to the humblest .ple
beian; even the disgusted Oklahoma boomer
returning to the peace and quietness' of
Philadelphia was represented. Many of
them were without means and these were
cared for by the Pennsylvania railroad offi
cials until they could be shipped to their
destination by a circuitous route.
The offices ofthe ticket agents and Super
intendent Pitcairn were besieged all day
yesterday bythe hundreds who were strand
ed in the city by the great calamity at
Johnstown. The agents and employes were
plied with every question which could pos
sibly enter the excited minds of the delayed
travelers, but to the Credit of the gentlemen
who are supposed to know everything re
lating to railroad business or disasters, they
generally sent their interrogators away sat

Kb tickets were sold since "Thursday
evening east of Sang Hollow. When the
delayed travelers were notified this morn
ing that arrangements had been 'made to
take them east via Erie over the Erie and

the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern,
there was a murmur of delieht. and when
the train pulled out of the TJnicn depot 'at

Superintendent Pitcaim stated yesterday
that no trains could possibly be sent over
the road before Tuesday, and then only pas

all been stopped and no effort is being
made to move the freight which has

The suDerintendents of the divisions of all
the branches of the Pennsylvania Bailroad 1
met yesterday atternoon in the oince of Sup

New York via Erie and to afford relief- to
the sufferers. The first relief train was sent
out about 1 o'clock yesterday. It contained
clothing, provisions and 200 coffins.
Sixty merchants who applied for cars
were given 12, which they filled with pro
Visions and clothing and dispatched to the
scene ofthe disaster at 4 o'clock, in charge
of James Scott and a distributing commit

Mr. Charles Spannagel, a scientific gen
tleman from Berlin. Germany, now in this
city, touched upon an interesting question
yesterday by asking a Dispatch reporter:
"Why did that dam Break at the South
Pork Lake, and to what can this dreadful
slaughter by the water be due?" There
porter professed no knowledge that gave en
lightenment on the question.
Said the speaker: "I do not know for
sure, of course, but this awful calamity has
set me thinking. Was the mortar in the
dam good? "Was it built solid ? "Why did
it not strain
It In Different There.
'In Germany we do not have any such
disasters, and we have many such dams in
the valleys to hold back the water for a
reserve in droughts; but they; never gave
way when the floods came. Near Aix La
Chappelle, in Belgium, there is a monster
one. At Varviers there is another very
much larger than the one that has caused
"In Germany they ate very careful of the
materials they use, and they consider it a
great feat of engineering to build a dam so
strong that it is as impossible to move it as
a wall of rock. The tensile strength of the
cement used is tested by a machine, and the
Cnrefully I-ooked Into.
"The stone is examined and every precau
tion looked into.
"Was there not a weak spot somewhere in
the South Pork dam? Were the contractors
caeful in their work? Only God and
themselves know; but, in the face of events
like these, when a whole beantiful Ameri
can city is wiped out of existence, I hear,
and, amid the awful tales of woe and ruin,
.thoughts come to me that maybe someone is
to blam'e, that, possibly the walls were de
fective; but it is done, and who will ever
An Engineer's Doubts.
As to the substantial quality of the dam
in question was considered by engineers al
most invulnerable. Mr. "W. D. Corcoran, an
experienced engineer, said to a Dispatch
reporter: "I examined personally the South
Pork pond and its strongholds twice, and I
cannot reasonably think that it should be
swept away, unless the lower portion of the
structure was loosened, which would natur-
ally weaken the whole upper portion of the
stone work. It was built with every pre
caution to withstand heavy pressure, audi
still hold that it is there intact"
Others well acquainted with the artificial
lake were possessed of the same views as

Another Train Laden With Provisions Sent

Late last night a train of eight cars pulled
ont of the Union depot and started on its
way for the scene of death, desolation and
starvation. The first car was filled with
coffins consigned principally to Nineveh,
where a number of the nnfortunates are now
being sheltered. The other seven cars were
heavily laden with provisions of all kinds
for the needy sufferers. One car alone was
filled with cases, each containing 50 loaves
of elegant creamery bread. The others were
filled with all sorts of miscellaneous pro
visions. Four of the cars came over the Panhandle

provisions to the. afternoon train, and three

The South Pork Pishing Club held an in
formal meeting at the office ot Mr. Charles
J. Clark, No. 90 Fourth avenue, yesterday
morning. All the members that could be
reached by telegraph were hurriedly called
together, and about twenty responded to the
call. It was decided not to take any im
mediate action as an organization. The
members inquired as to what was most
needed, and learned that blankets, clothing,
etc., were absolutely needed at once to pro
tect the survivors. An order was at once
issued for 1.200 heavy blankets, which were
sent up on an afternoon train. The mem
bers ofthe club contributed to the purchase
of the blankets as individuals.

Mr. Walter McClintock, a leading mem
ber of the club, said the pond was stocked
with three kinds of fish, landlock salmon,
black bass and trout. The pond was well
filled, as no person had fished in it since
last summer. These fish have all gone
down to the river with the flood, and many
of them will remain at the Davis Island
dam, while some will pass into the small
streams along the river. Mr. McClintock
says that in the fall all these fish will pass
up into the Conemaugh river to spawn.

A Piano and a Slnrrlnso Certificate Taken
From the Water.
When the news of the great disaster
reached the town of Millvale yesterday a
majority ofthe population gathered at the
river to watch the wreckage ns it passed
down. It had only encountered one bridge
before it reached there and consequently
was almost unbroken. -Everything con
ceivable in the form of furniture went its
way down the river. Pianos were mixed
up with outhouses, while it was not an un
common sight to see a dead pig lying on a
mattress.. Several dead horses were seen
tossing in the whirlpool of the torrent, but
the closest examination of the debris from
the Porty-third street bridge failed to show
any human bodies. Boxes marked "Johns
town, Pa.," showed full well of the journey
they had made.'and a small board, neatly
lettered, "Broad street," gave evidence of
some buildinc on the corner ot that thor
oughfare having been washed away.
The current ran close to the shore and al
lowed parties to catch various articles, one
of which, a piano, was landed. Another, a
trunk, was fished out and examined, but it
did not contain much. In a hat in it, how
ever, was found a certificate of marriage,
which showed that Bev. S. F. Freeman had
married Frank Beitsch and Matilda Ols
haner at TJniontown on October 5, 1887, in
compliance with marriage license ,No. 971,
issued in Fayette county. The certificate is
at W. B. Salt & Co.'s hardware store, Bridge

Kanlmanns' Contribution of 17 Cases of
At first thought Kaufmanns' intended to
give ?i,000 worth of clothing, etc., but as
the news of the calamity multiplied they
concluded to make it $2,500 worth. These
goods were packed in large drygoods boxes,
each box being marked what it contained.
Some boxes were marked men's suits, some
men's pants, some boys' suits, some chil
dren's suits, others woolen shirts, etc. There
were 17 cases in all, seven having been
shipped at 11:45 o'clock yesterday morning,
while the other ten left at 5 o'clock last even
ing. Hence, it is not only the large amount of
Kaufmanns contribution, but also the
promptness with which it was forwarded

HEAYY LOSS TO SHIPPERS.
The Hieh Water Prevents the Packets
From Sailing The Iosm a Henry One
Pecuniarily Tho Elver Fast
The water in theMonongahela continued
to rise all day yesterday, but at a much
slower rate than on Friday night. Yester
terday afternoon the rise averaged only
about five inches an hour.
During the latter part of the afternoon
word was received from Brownsville and
other points up the river, that the waters
had began to slowly recede. Late lastnight
the water in the Monongahela, began to go
down and the boatmen, who have been
detained here, expressed high hopes of get
ting away early this morning.
Dozens of river packet steamers are lying
on the flats, unable to get away. Their
cargoes are all shipped, and everything is
in readiness to cast away. '
No Trade Up or Down.
But the high water in the river renders .
it impossible for them to pass either under
the Bridges, or over the locks. This state of
things, unfortunately, is attended with a
heavy pecuniary loss.
A Dispatch reporter last night asked
Mr. James A. Henderson, ofthe Cincinnati
packet line, what a rough approximate of
the loss would amountto. Mr. Henderson
said: "The loss will be a very heavy one,"
but I hardly think it possible" to give any
thing like what might be called an approxi
mate amount. They have been delayed to
a great extent, and every hour that they are
lying idle means so many dollars. Then
again another very serious Joss will ensue to
the steamboat owners to-night, for, when the
water goes down, if the captains don't keep
a sharp lookout, they will find themselves
high and dry on the flats.
The Main Precantions.
To prevent this it will be necessary to
keep a double force of men on all night.
Steam will have to be kept up all night, and
themen will be kept busy trying' to keep
their vessels off the shore as the water goes
"With this exception, however, there has
been little or no loss. I received word yes
terday that the river was rapidly rising.and
I at once notified all the people I could to
take iu their freight from the wharves. This
was done, and with the exception of a few
shooks of barrel staves nothing of any value
was washed away."
Another trouble is beginning to alarm
the business men. Along that section the
river has risen to that point where it flows
into the cellars, and a number of business
houses have taken precautions against any
unpleasant surprises in the shape of a bellap
THE WEATHEE DETERRED THEM;
Pittsburg; Sportsmen Who Intended to Go to
Sooth Fork Fliblne.
The anxiety of people increases every
moment, and about the Pittsburg Sportsmen
Association the credibility ofthe reports re
ceived; is still doubted, so far as the burst
ing of the South Pork dam. The cloud
burst theory is still adhered to. Nothing
has been heard from young Lawrence or the
Shea brothers, and the latter's father,
George D. Shea, when seen at the stores of
Jos. Home & Co., was in a most perturbed
state of mind regarding the peril of his sons.
Durbin ITornesaid, however, he had no fear
for their safety,- as they were wideawake
boys and could take care of themselves.
It was just by a lucky incident that more
Pittsburgers were not in the devastated
region, and had the weather been more
salubrious and conducive to fishing a num
ber of club men wonld have been jaunting
at Sonth Fork. W. J. and Harrv Patton
intended going np on Thursday to "be joined

HELP FROM THE G. A. E.
Meeting This Evening In Select Connct
Chamber, City Hall.
The Executive Committee of the G. A. B.
of Allegheny county met in the City Treas
urer's office yesterday afternoon, as if by
preconcerted arrangement. They immedi
ately went into session to take measures for
the relief of their comrades in distress at
Johnstown, where Post No. 30 is located.
The committee decided to call a meeting of
all old soldiers in Select Council Chamber,
City Hall, for to-morrow evening, when
contributions forthe flood sufferers of Johns
town will be received.
AH posts of the G. A. B. in the connty
will be expected to send delegates to this
meeting with subscriptions. Mr. A. P.
Burchfield stated that he had been notified
that the ladies of the G. A. B. held them
selves in readiness to respond at once to a
call for nurses or whatever duty might be
expected of them to relieve the sufferers
at Johnstown. In order to find out what
conld best be done the committee sent Com
rade Ed. Fisher, of Post 3, to Johnstown on
the special relief train at 425 yesterday
A DEJECTED FATHER.
Colonel W. XV. Lawrence Anxiously Wnll
IngNews of Ills Son.
Colonel W. W. Lawrence, when called on
yesterday at his Water afreet office, was
slowly pacing up and down, while his face
showed deeper lines than usual, and he was
almost worn out from loss of sleep. His
son, J. J. Lawrence, is supposed to be at
South Fork, and he can get no news from
"The last I heard of him," said Colonel
Lawrence, was at 9 o'clock Friday, when he
telegraphed me that he could not get home.
The suspense since then has been terrible. I
could not sleep last night, and dan't expect
to get any sleep to-night.
"There must have been a waterspout
there to burst the dam. I regarded it as
strong as the mountain. It must have been
the dam that broke, as there is no place else
from which such a body of water could
come. Iu my opinion it will be impossible
for anyone to reach South Fork for several
days, at least."
DID DEATH END A ROMANCE ?
A Rising American Singer nnd His German
Bride Supposed to bo Drowned.
Prof. Carl Better was one of the most
worried men in Pittsburg yesterday. All
day he was trying to get some word of his
friend, Prof. Hippley, of Johnstown. Prof.
Hippley, according to Prof. Better's story,
is an American from the East. Some years
ago Mr. Better met him in an Eastern city
at an Eisteddfod. He was at once struck
with the young man's voice, and ever since
Mr. Hippley has been a sort of a protege of
Under Better's advice, he took a two
years' course of study in Germany. While
there last winter Hippley entered into a
somewhat romantic marriage with a German
peasant girl, whose father objected to the
marriage. He then returned to America
and settled in Johnstown. To please his
wife Hippley took a cottage close to the'
river on the outskirts of town. The posi
tion is directly in the track of the worst part
of the flood, and Hippley's house was un
doubtedly one of tbe first to go.
THE RELIEF TRAINS.
Two of-Thcm With Provisions and Men Are
At 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon a car
loaded with provisions and clothing snp
plied by Gusky's.was sent out.
At 435 o'clock the second regular relief
train was sent out. It consisted of six box
cars and one passenger coach. The cars
contained clothing and provisions, also 150
coffins. In the passenger coach was the
Volunteer Belief Crew, about 60 in all, and
composed mostly of members of the Ameri-
cus Bepublicau Club. The train was under
the charge of James B, Scott, and the orders
were to get into the flooded city if possible.
Twelve policemen also accompanied the
party. As the train passed ont of the Union
station the large crowd that had gathered
about gave the party a hearty cheer.
A peculiar fact In connection with this
relief party was that nearly the entire 'crew
was made up of the better class of young
men, who would be picked out in a crowd as
being of too stylish a character to soil their
hands by laboring.
GETTING IN SHAPE.
The Baltimore and Ohio Has a Clear Bond
to Cumberland Blalne'n Bond I, How
ever, Enjoying- a Slate of Ennnl.
The Baltimore and Ohio Bailroad Com
pany are the first to get their lines in work
ing order, after the big washont of Priday.
At that time the Baltimore and Ohio lines
in Pennsylvania were entirely demoralized.
Bright and early yesterday morning, how
ever, the company had a crowd ot men at
work all over the lines where any damage
had been sustained, and last night the an
nouncement was made that the line was
clear, all the way through from Cumber
land. There seems to be some trouble on the
main line east of Cumberland, but what the
difficulty is could not be learned, as the
wires are all down east of that place, and
there isno communication between that point
and Baltimore. A train was sent out from
this city las'- night by way of Connellsville
to Cumberland, but it is thought that the
train will be held at the latter point unless
the telegraphic communication to Baltimore
is reopened by the time she arrives there.
The Baltimore and Ohio is also running
into Currantville, a small station about one
mile from Johnstown, but as yet nothing
important has been learned from that place
regarding the situation at the submerged
city. "Jim" Blaine's pet road, the
West Virginia Central, is lying irr
an elegant state of innocuous desuetude. The
bridges have not been replaced, and the
road is relegated to a period ot enforced idle
ness. While it is barely possible that the
road might die of ennui it is safe to assume
that its exalted ruler, the Premier from
Maine, will never succumb to that beauti
ful but fatal malady. ,
The Cumberland and Pennsylvania is en
joying the same period ot enforced idleness
as its sister road ofthe Blaine family.
TWO THOUSAND COFFIXS!
The Order From Johnstown That Waa Sent
to an Allegheny Firm.
The startling information was received in
this city last night that the number of
deaths resulting from the great washout will
be far in ad7Ca of any figures yet given.
Tha information, up a the hour ot going to
press, was meager in the extreme, but it
came from a very reliable source and is to
With the information came also the an
nouncement that an order had been sent to
a coffin factory in Allegheny for 2,000 coffins,

f can be turned out. The name of the firm
conld not be learned, but the Dispatch's
informant received the message from a most
authoritative source, the source being none
other than Johnstown.
It is said that in a few days something
definite will be known ns to the number of
the missing, bnt until then it is merely a
matter of conjecture. Friends and .rela
tives are hoping against hope that their
loved ones may be yet alive, but in many
instances the hope is a forlorn one indeed.
The Belief Committee had a busy night
in the rooms of the Chamber of Commerce.

all night and there was a great amount ot
business to be transacted. When Colonel
