The Veteran Shuts tho Hoosiers Oat In
Brilliant Style.
There is not much room to tell the stories of
base bail defeats and victories at present, no
natter bow glorious or inglorious they may be.
res if there was space at command, the fact
that thcro is little desire to read abont any
thing except the dreadful calamity at Johns
town will surprise nobody. However, tho
thousand people who went over to Recreation
Park yesterday to see the local talent and the
Hoosiers lock horns sawaconQict that is worth
rememberinc- Judging from the way in which
the two teams performed, it seemed as if the
demolition of all the world except the ball
ground would have very little effect on them.
Two old foes met and, depend upon it, every
thing else for the nonce was forgotten.
The real contest of yesterday's game lay be
tween Ualvin and Boyle two well-known
youngsters to people of along time ago. Old
Jimmy reappeared, and If ever he was young,
sprightly and vigorous it was yesterday. Jim
my's work was just as impressive and effective
as that of the most elorious gladiator that ever
entered the Roman arena of earlier days. He
accomplished just what every admirer of the
local would wish be shut the Hoosiers out.
couldx't touch jimmy.
They couldn't touch the old fellow. His
pitching was undoubtedly better than on any
occasion this year, and if a rest improves
everybody as much as it has done the "Old
Man," judging from yesterday's work, Pitts
burg will be almost invulnerable in the way of
pitchers. Oalvm's work really reminded one
of the best achievements of his life.
And let no one forget Henry Boyle, Viscount
jienry, as ne ougnt to oe cauea, or at least
ought to have been. In the way of giving a
few bases on balls he made one or two mis
takes. One of these caused his defeat. In a
sense, that is, in a cosmopolitan sense, it was a
pity for Boyle to lose such a game as he
pitched: but his own error was the deciding
point. Had that particular base on balls never
ieen made the teams might have, played an
unfinished game, with a score of 0 to 0.
Although the hitting was remarkably light
there were some interesting features in the
game. Both teams fielded brilliantly, and when
hits couldn't be seen the idea was to see some
thing great in the field. Borne great work was
seen, and it is safe to say that the local team
can field just as brilliantly as those who have
met them at other places say they can. With
out doubt the fielding was excellent.
Two of the errors credited to the home
players were extremely excusable. They were
errors credited particularly to Kuehne and
Smith. These mistakes, however, does not
prevent impartial people from saying that
Smith and Kuehne did first-class work. Han
Ion fielded in his usual bright way. and that
means a great deal. He caught a very difficult
And the Hoosiers did a little better fielding
than our fellows. ' Glasscock caught, with one
hand, a liner from Kuehne's bat in the seventh
inning that caused the thousand spectators to
cheer loudly. Denny also kept up hie record.
One pleasing feature of the game was the fact
that a boss of Miller's friends presented him
with a handsome gold watch "and chain. It was
generally pleasing because everybody thought
be deserved it.
The only run of the game was made In the
fifth inniug. Maul led off and reached first on
called balls. Kuehne followed with the first
bit for the local players. He knocked the ball
to right field, out was doubled up with Smith
on the tatter's short fly to Bassett. Old Gal
Tin's daisy crack to left, however, brought
Maul home and that won the game.
Fessenden. the new umpire, gave great satis
faction. He is a prompt and lusty-voiced gen
tleman. Store:

KJUbir tho Enthusiasm.
The flood excitement still prevails high above
anything of a baseball notion. Last night, at a
lato hour, it could not be learned whether the
Pittsburgh and Indianapolis teams intend to
play two games or one, or even cone at all.
The flood has unfortunately dampened baseball
enthusiasm here. Morris will likely pitch to
day for the home team, if there is a game.

Hovr Some of Them Preserve Their Vitality
for an Unusually Lone Period.
It would be rash to .affirm, remarks a
writer in the London Evening Standard,
that, under exceptional circumstances, es
pecially when seeds have been kept from
contact with the air and in a dry atmos
phere, some ot them may not preserve.their
vitality for an unusually long period.
Beans have been sprouted 60 years after
they were gathered, and seeds of plants be
longing to the same leguminous tribe taken
from the herbarium ot Tournefort, who
flourished in 1694, grew into fruiting plants
in the Jardin des Plantes in the year 1810.
The seeds of the sensitive plant are known
to have been vital after being kept for 60
years; haricot have germinated after 100
years, and there is an indispnted instance
of a grain of rye sprouting when 140 years
Still more to the point, maize taken from
an apparently undisturbed Inca tomb in
Fern, which could not have been closed
less than tnree centuries ago, showed a
feeble vitality, and a fact of a very remark
able character, which renders dogmatism
unsafe, was recorded from near Shrewsbury,
about the year 1871. In cutting down a
large elm tree, a quantity of acorns was
found in a cavity of the trunk, though so
completely inclosed by the growth of
the tree since the squirrel or other animal
had placed them there, that two feet of
wood, showing 120 annual rings, inter
vened between the acorns and the open air.
Yet several of them terminated. In these
cases the seeds were kept in a perfectly air-'
tignt space, ana entirely excluded from any
agents likely to stimulate germination, or
cause the decay of the young plant. We
also know, as a familiar fact, that when
forests are swept by fires, the growth which
springs np in the burnt tracts is not the
same as that which disappeared. In North
America pine and spruce are succeeded
first by a growth of brambles, which in
time are replaced by dwarf birch, poplar,
and bird cherry. Then scrub oaks and
various hard woods follow these, and pine
rarely re-appears except upon laud long
mellowed by agriculture, though the suc
cession of trees varies much in different
parts of the continent.
In Cssar's day the Hercynian Forest
modern Harzwald consisted chiefly of
broad leaved trees. But firs and pines now
predominate. In Styria, when certain sec
tions of pine forests are cut down, young
oaks take their places; and in France, after
the felling of timber in the forests of a
particular district of that country, brooms,
fox-gloves, heath, birches, and aspen spring
in place of the oaks, beeches and ashes
hewn down by .the woodmen. Then, after
an interval of 90 years, or thereabouts
aftei the third coppicing oaks and
beeches reconquer their original position.
During the present century the terri
torial extent of tbe United States has more
than quadrupled. The total area Is now 3,603,
881 square miles, while in 1788 it was only 827,
814 square miles, and in the same period the
nation nas issreasea zrom 8,ksj,zii to near-,088,098.

One of the important features of the flood
is'the laxity shown in identifying the res

innumerable families- swept .away from

Three Thousand Bodies Hnve.Becn Recov

ed Awful Scenes Around tbe
Dlorgnes The Search
for Relatives and
JomrsTO'WTr, June. 3. The number of
dead bodies which have been discovered and
prepared for burial in the different charnel
houses has almost reached over 3,000, and
those who are in a position to know claim
that nearly as many more will be unearthed.
An effort was made by your correspondent
this afternoon to get an accurate, and com
plete list of the bodies so far handled, but
it was fonnd impossible to do so. Tbe
number has grown so large that the under
takers who are preparing the bodies for burial
said they got'tired counting and gave it up.
At the Fourth street or school house morgue,
in which locality the deaths were the' greatest,
the people in charge said it was impossible to.
say how many bodies they have handled since
Saturday morning, Mr. Kittell, who has been
In attendance all the time, said they had
handled' over 2,000, but could not give the ex
act figures.
Herman Ebbert, of Allegheny, had kept tally
of the number of people prepared under-his
care. Up until i o'clock this afternoon he had
received 629 bodies. Of this number about 100
came in to-day and those who could not be
identified were burled almost- as soon as they
were prepared. At tbe morgue In Millville
there was only one body received to-day.. It
was that of an unknown young girl about 15
years of age, but there was nothing about her
person by whicn she could be identified. This
body made the forty-sixth corpse prepared at
this morgue. ,
One of the Many Unknown.
Upon tho breast of the young girl was a
bruise about one-half men wide. Tbe men
who refer.?!! lie- thought that tbe body had
been i 1 . n.-fnre they discovered it. The
marks on lit; ;;irb wrist were supposed to
have been maJu by a bracelet which some of
the robbers who have been plying their ne
farious calling on tbe dead, were trying to
secure from the body. They, evidently could
not get it off quick enough and in their eager
ness to get the article of jewelry bad rudely
jerked it off, bruising the young girl's tender
flesh. She was taken from the water near
Cambria City.
Tho sight of so many coffins on the sides of
both tracks and on the station platform at
Nineveh almost caused the sightseers to turn
bckand filled them horror. Since Sunday
there has been a large number of coffins scat
tered around the station in full view of the
people coming up from Pittsburg. The sight
of so many coffins when gazed upon by those in
search of relatives and friends had the effect of
giving them the horrors. One woman, upon
seeing tbe coffins, thought of what -was to- fol
low and refused to continue on her way to
The Dead at Nineveh.
Tbe morgue at Niniveh now has a record of
handling about 285 dead bodies in the last two
days. The beautiful station has appropriately
been, called "The City of the Dead." The
scenes at the different morgues were not
pathetic, they were excruciating. At St, Co
lumbus Church, every time the wagon would
be driven up to the door, there would be a rush
for tbe place by the greater number of the in
habitants of Cambria City. -There
were mothers there almost in the
last agonies of despair' over tbe losses
they had sustained. One woman did
nothing all day but sit . at . tbe shrine
of one of the images in the church and, clasp
ing her bands upon her knees, would rock
backward and forward, giving vent to heart
rending sobs. The church presented 'a deso
late appearance. The magnificent decorative
work on the Catholic church was smeared and
and disfigured with mud, and. dirt. The
corpses, when brought in upon stretchers, were
placed unon the tops of the "pews. -The curios
ity of some people, and the eagerness of others
to find the bodies of their friends did not pre-'
vent them from rushing 'in and out of the
sacredediflce made more solemn by ,the pres
ence of death. "
Atthe school house morgue the attendants
had to close the door against the people who
clamored for admission. Had this not been
done it would have been impossible to do any
work. Relatives of the dead people who' had
been brought In had to stand back and were .re
fused admission. Some of tbe dead bodies
were so bruised up about the face that it was
not thought necessary to embalm them'to
await identification by friends. One little
baby girl had her head almost smashed to a
jelly. One of the eyes was sunk almost into
the middle of her head. It was 'fixed and
glassy. After lookingat her face a moment the
observer would turn away with a shudder.

Vice President of the Cambria Iron Works,
after starting a gang of men to work to clear

The trestle from the stone bridge across the
the present channel of the Conemaugh has
been completed, and tbe work of laying a
temporary track into the town will be resumed
to-morrow. Tbe rope foot bridge, which was
completed this evening, was badly damaged
before 9 o'clock to-night. The footway of
boards is tied to the ropes and tho large amount
of travel over it displaced a number of these.
In the center it is supported by three skiSs
which add greatly to its stability. Passengers
going over it must keep ten feet apart.
It is a rather precarious structure at best and
as soon as possible will be replaced by a solid
bridge. The ferry that was used to transport
passengers yesterday took 8,000 people across
the' Conemaugh to tbe stone bridge, ana the
record to-day before tho foot bridge was com
pleted was 5,000.
The Fourth Ward House Overrun With Its

Johnsto wjf. June 3. The Fourth Ward Hotel,

was established to-day in a room adjoining
President Moxham's headquarters in this
hotel. It is running only two chairs.
Seven undertakers arrived from McKeesport
to-day, and axe in charge of the embalming.
McKeesport also sent two carloads of provi

Evan Jones, of Uraddock. Tbeywill direct and

The arrival of these people, coupled with

of efforts and subsequent speedy results.
An Ureent Appeal for Laborers and Tools-
A Two Weeks Task to Clean the Town
5,600 Survivors Reported
Johnstown, June 3. Captain Jones ar
rived.from Braddock this afternoon with 160
men, and a lot more will be' here in the
morning. , They, have with them everything
necessary to remove the debris picks, shov
els, axes, etc. To-night they are sheltered
by a large tent in the middle of the space
that has been swept clean.
Captain Jones took a survey of the situa
tion on his arrival and was soon impressed
by the immensity of the ruin. He says
there should be not less than 2,000, and if
possible 3,000, men sent here at once. He
has telegraphed this opinion to the Chamber
Refugee! on the Hillside
of Commerce, backing it by a demand for
them. He wants them to bring all neces
sary tools, and. says they should be formed
into two camps, which should be guarded
by an adequate force of military. He wants
Pittsburg to send the men here,and he wants
the Chamber of Commerce to demand the
military guard from General'Beaver. The
camp' should be supplied with cooks and
everything necessary to, their subsistence.
Many Laborers Needed.
"The local people," said Captain Jones,
"have only 600 men at work now, and these
are nearly exhausted. One of these camps
I tell you about should be in the southeast
ern part of the town, and the other in the
center. It will take not less than two weeks
for such a force of men to clean this place.
The sheriffs of Indiana and "Westmoreland
counties should have the debris piled along
the banks of the streams, and re-examined
for human bodies. The Pittsburg Chamber
of Commerce should ask them to' send out,
men to do this at once. In my telegram to
them to-night I make this suggestion."
Adjutant General Hastings to-night sent
this dispatch to he Pittsburg Chamber of
Commerce: '
Chamber of Commerce, Pittsburg:
It will be well to send at least 1,000 workmen.

with axes, picks, spades, saws and other tools,
to move the debris. The men should be organ
ized in gangs under competent bosses and be
prepared to stay here ten days. I will furnish
tents, and they can be supplied from the gen
eral commissary. It is my judgment that all
workmen living here and willing to work
should be paid good wages, and then, to pre
vent imposition, purchase supplies for them
selves and families from the' general commis
sary at reduced rates. This will prevent idle
ness among the citizens. Captain Jones is here
with 150 men, and has charge of all workmen
from a distance. Among other tools, there
shoud be 100 wheelbarrows and plenty of one
inchrope. Please advise me.
(Signed) D. H. Hastings, Acting General.
Clearing- Away the Debris.
General Hastings, in response to The
Dispatch correspondent's question whether
he thought the Chamber of Commerce peo
ple would readily respond to the call for
men and tools said:
'Undoubtedly so. "We are fairly or
ganized, but not as perfectly as we might
be. Everything is moving along in a satis
factory manner, and by to-morrow night
we will be making very material progress
in clearing away the debris. In 10 days at

expected, our work will have shown a great
degree of push and a probable early end.

Adjutant General Hastings Succors a Poor,
Starving Woman.
Johnstown, June a A big man with a big
heart Is Adjutant General Hastings. Strict as
he is in the performance of " his duty, he is nev
ertheless as gentle as a woman dealing with the
poor stunned beings who have lost their all.
The writer has been near General Hastings on
a number of occasions when little traits ot
character unintentionally revealed the soldier
as the man. This afternoon when the pitiless
rain was pattering down upon the
hundreds of. half-starved victims of the
flood's ravages, who were gathered about
the Commissary Department, General
Hastings was compelled to announce
to the crowd that no morn provisions could be
given out until another carload of crackers
arrived upon the scene. As he left the plat
form, a woman, haggard and faint, bearing a
baby in her arms, tapped bim timidly upon the
"Pleaselslr," said she, while the tears chased
one another down her saddened and halt
shameful countenance, "can't you give me a
biteofbreadr Only a biter I haven't tasted
anything since yesterday morning."
"'Gainst orders," was .the General's laconic
reply, as he strode away. He did not go far,
however, until he had ordered one of his subor
dinates to follow the woman and serve to her
the steaming dinner which kindly bands had
prepared for him. Being an eye-witness to the
whole scene. I walked up to the General and
asked him why he bad not given the woman
something out of the general store.
"I had given orders that no rations should be
dispensed for an hour," said he, "and (with a
good-natured smile) I couldn't countenance a
reach of discipline."
Every Effort Is Being Made to Open tho
Line for Travel.
Philadelphia, June 3. The best informa
tion that can be obtained to-day at the Penn
sylvania railroad office in this city, is to tbe efj
feet that a route will be patched up to Altoona
within 36 hours, thus giving the 800 or more east'
and west bound passengers laid up at that
piace an opportunity, to get away from there.
On the middle division of the main line the
road is clear from Altoona, and they hope to
get from Petersburg to Huntingdon some time
to-day. From Huntingdon to Manayunk bridge
there are several bad breaks. All but one span
of tbe Manayunk bridge has been swept away.
East of that point the Mays bridge is gone, and
but one span remains ot tbe Granville bridge.
From Lewiston to Harrlsburg. a distance of 65
miles, the line is clear.
The railroad people expect soon to get a dis
patch wire through to Altoona over the main
line route when a correct list of tbe passengers
on the Day express and mall train, who were
left at Conemaugh, will be obtained, as well as
the whereabouts of those who did not go to
Altoona. From the best information obtaina
ble it can be stated that Only seven of the
passengers were lost. From Altoona westward,
in tbe day line, the track is open to within a
short distance of South Fork, where the bridge
was washed away Friday evening. Between
South Fork and Johnstown, 1.000 men are busy
putting the track In'shape. At Johnstown and
west of there several large gangs of workmen
are employed. It is not believed that passen
gers can be conveyed from Harrlsburg to Pitts
burg over tbe main line inside a week or ten
days. As to the transportation of freight and
malls nothing definite can be learned.
Should be Promptly and Effectually Ordered
Away From the Scene.
Nineveh, June 3. Some measures should
be taken at once to effectually squelch the
fiendish relic hunters. They are here in full
force and large numbers, and some of the
tricks they resprt to'in their efforts to secure
mementos of the flood are almost criminal in
their cruelty. While working amid the smold
ering ruins about the stone bridge at Johns
town this morningl saw a morbid monomaniac
secure the charred bones of an infant from
amongthe smoking debris and wrapping them
carefully In a newspaper, carry them away
with a look of triumph on his face.
At this place, where tbe dead almost out
number the living, some frightful deeds have
been perpetrated by the searchers for relics.
One man stole an old bandana kerchief from
about the head of a dead colored woman. An
other removed a shoe from an old, gray-haired
man, whose stiff and mangled corpse wasf ound
dangling in a tree, while still another possessed
himself of the sheet which was thrown over the
remains of a child, leaving the body at the
mercy of a weeping heaven.
Nor are the relic hunters tho only class who
desecrate tbe sanctity of the City of the Dead.
The heartless crowds of excursionists who
have thronged tbe regions round about for the
past few days would be more at home in a jail
than anywhere else if their actions go for'
aught. Some of them have gone through the
town singing, whistling and cracking the coars
est of jokes, while others have trampled o'er
tbe coffins strewn about the roads with an
utter disregard for their sacred and hallowed

Cnttlng n .New Channel and Damaging
Pennsylvania Railroad Tracks.
Johnstown, June 3. Three Plttsburgers
came here from South Fork this morning and
started for home. One of them, supposed to
be young Clarke, told a gentleman all the oth
ers were safe. Between the dam and South;
Fork run there are only two houses. Every
body in the immediate vicinity bad sufficient
warning to enable them to escape.
A gentleman from that vicinity says the
creek has cut a new channel for itself and is
making havoc of the local geography of the
