RATHER AGAINST ONE
Wil Return to Johns
town and Ignore Mr.
MEETING HELD LAST NIGHT.
The Pittsburg end of what promises to be
come a very lively undertakers' fracas ex
plodedand went offwith alond report last
night. The Johnstown end of the affair
consisted, if the reports that came to the
city yesterday are true, in a conflict of au
thority between Mr. W. H. Devore and Mr.
J. J. Flannery, of Pittsburg. Mr. Devore
claimed to be authorized by the State Board
to manage the work of the un
dertaken and exhibited a postal
card signed by the Chairman of
the board, requesting him to direct these
matters. Mr. Flannery claimed to be au
thorized by the Chamber of Commerce Com
mittee, and to have been elected by the
Pittsburg undertakers as the undertaker-ln-charge.
There was a quarrel between the
two, the lie was given and, it is said, a
knock-down fight narrowly prevented. Mr.
Flannery came to Pittsburg Friday night,
bringing 30 or 40 undertakers with him.
Mr. Devore stated to newspaper correspond
ents that the trouble arose over the men
under Flannery getting drunk, and deferred
especially to an agent for an embalming
The Flcht In Pittsburg.
The undertakers' world in Pittsburg was
In a furor yesterday. Mr. Plannery was on
deck with the force that he bad brought
back with him. Mr. H. C, Tarr, agent for
the embalming company, whom Mr. Devore
had referred to without, however, mention
ing his name, was also on hand. He had
worked hard among the Johnstown suf
ferers, and the wrong thai he had suffered
from Mr. Devore in being pilloried in the
public press as a drunkard was enlarged
upon. It was stated by Mr. Plannery and
cthnxs that Mr. Devore had lived like a
gentleman on Prospect Hill, while the
other undertakers slept on the floor of the
morgue, that Mr. Devore had worked
upon the State Board to get the credentials,
had worked upon the correspondents to get
free advertising, had even used his position
among the Johnstown sufferers to get busi
ness, andiad forwarded bodies to his un
dertaking rooms in Pittsburg, taking pay
ior his work and the work of his assistants.
' By noon excitement had been raised to
pretty nearly fever heat, and when the
eveninr mners came out with Mr. Devore's
charges of drnnlen'ness, it fairly knew .no
bounds, it boiled over. -
Something had to be done. A meeting of
undertaken was called at Mr. Flannery's
s ' Sluing With Closed Doom.
Thjrty or more responded. They ad
journed at once to somewhere else. The re
porters were told that they would be given
whatever it would be thought best for them
to print alter the meeting was over.
The clerk In Mr. Planncry's office
refused to tell even where the meet
ing .was held. The Dispatch
Teporter was unsatisfied with the
promise of post mortem information. He
went even to the camp of the enemy the
office of Mr. W. H. Devore. By industrious
use of the telephone there he located the
indignation meeting, strange to say, at the
office of Mr. Devore's own son. Mr, E. L.
Derore, on Sixth avenue. There he
which tho funeral directors conducted them
serrei in Johnstown, and especially one East
ern gentleman who came here and worked and
lalmred very hard; and,
Whereas, This is doing tho funeral directors
a great injustice and is highly insulting to
certain members, the Eastern gentlemen, and
in fact the entire profession, be It therefore.
Resolved, That we here assembled deny all
such statements as great untruths, and hereby
censure and condemn the action as very un
professional and not worthy of onr notice.
F. C. 1JE1NHAUK, Chairman.
Besides passing this resolution, the meet
ing decided upon action for the future. It
would not do to let the work drop because
of Mr. Devore's assumption of authority.
Under the call of Mr. McCreery, the work
must be carried on, and carried on under the
management of Mr. Flannery and irrespect-
ueor me commands or mteriereuce of w
H. Devore. Men oust be sent back to
Johnstown at once.
Will Ignore Devore's Authority.
These men must go under Mr. Flannery's
direction and to take eare of the dead, Mr.
Plannery stated that it wonld be impossible
for him to go himself at once, but the men
could act under bis direction. There were
at opce many volunteers. The following Is
a list of the men who will return to their work
in the JobnstownVinorgue to-day,
James AI. Fullerton, John McCurdv, Miller

Matthews, two men: John Trailer, two mem
Henry O. Torr-William Slater, two men; John A
nicivmner,j, i. ocnui, j. jo. juiiot, p, p.
Ward and Dr. O. Conner.
These men will go with instructions to act
independently of Mr. Devore, to pay no at
tention to his orders and to consider them
selves under the direction of the Chamber
of Commerce-Belief Committee and of Mr.
Mr. Flannery' Statement. -
After the adjournment Chairman James
J. Flannery, in speaking to a Dispatch
reporter, Baid: "The statement as made by
Devore that I induced the men to come
home with me, or for the reasons
that-" he stated, I brand as
unqualifiedly false. Devore of course was
delegated by the State Board of Health to
take charge of the dead. That is true. The
Pittsbnrg undertakers were delegated. to go
to Johnstown to bury these bodies. "We
went there, and at once threw .off
onr coats and went to work. Not so with
Mr. Devore, however; he acted mainly as a
self-constituted reception committee or one.
He made it his business to receive all who
called at the morgue, but did not work
as the others did. I want to say
that there was utterly no feeling in
the matter of the men coming home.
It Is well known that Saturday anil Sunday
are big days with undertakers and livery
men, and the men came home in order to get
in readiness for Sunday. There was, as I
say, not the slightest feeling in the
matter until (Devore said that I
brought the men home, and that
I felt badly because he had
superceded me. I don't know what object
he could have in saying so, as it is not true.
It is true that we met in Devore's-office,
because there was nqt enough room in my
oince to accommodate the men. 1 was

effect of keeping the men back. We are
going back there to work, and are as anx

for ours. He made the same statement
before we left. I went to him and asked

was denied admission. He was told that
the meeting was simply to arrange for fur
ther work in Johnstown and to pass resolu
tions, retuting the charges of drunkenness
made in the evening papers. They did pass
such resolutions and they did arrange for
further work in Johnstown, but the real in
terest of tbe mee'ting centered in the storm

Mr. E. L. Devore did not wish to mention
his father's name in any resolutions of in
dignation, but he did feel that if his father
Tiad said what the papers had represented
"bin as saying, he ought to be censured by
the undertakers. On his part he was ready
to do what Mr. Flannery thought best. Mr.
'Flannery had done mnch, sacrificed much
and ought not cow to be set carelessly one
Accordingly Mr. Flannery was made
Chairman of the meeting. As a starter he
read the following call:
ifr. 3, J. tannery, Chairman:
.Asyouhavi had charge of matters pertain.
lhg.to the undertaking, .please confer through
us with Mr. J. H. Scott, and also use yonr onn
discretion and see that the dead are properly
cared for. Wiluau M. McCreebt,
This was the authority for the call of tbe
meeting. It was to consider and act upon
this that they were assembled. Having
"thus established his position, Mr. Flannery
proceeded to shpw what the position of Mr.
V. H. Devore was He read in full extracts
from the evening papers in which Mr.
"Devore had referred to bis men as being
under the influence of liquor. He stated
what Mr. Devore's conduct hat) been in his
opinion in this Johnstown matter, describ
ing it substantially as above given Mr. F.

Through Trains Over Both the Pennsylvania
and Baltimore and Ohio Kqads
Alaklpg Good Time Freight "
The Pennsylvania Bailroad Company is
having considerable trouble with the army
of sightseers who persist in going to Johns
town. No matter how heroio are the. meas
ures taken to keep snch people out, there,
seems to be always somebody who, on soma
excuse or another, can get the proper passes,
which the company has bound itself to ac
cept. The crowds of such people who dis
tributed themselves over the ruined city
last Sunday were enough to fill two
good-sized towns. A vast number of
them, too, were not of the best class
and everything was in an upset condition.
Yesterday, however, the company decided
that this wonld not be repeated, and decid
ed to run no train, special or otherwise, east
of Bolivar nnder any circumstances. This
order holds good all" day to-day, and no one
wno nas not a porse ana wagon
to meet him can get to Johnstown
without walking exactly jp.7 miles. In
speaking of the arrangement just; prior
to the issuance of the order, Chairman
McCreery, of tbe Citizens Committee, said
v e are endeavoring u nave the Pennsylva
nia Bailroad Company refuse to run any train
to Johnstown bnnday, and we rather think
that tbey will respect our wishes In the matter.
But even if they do rnn a train I will not sign a
pass tq be used Sunday unless the board
reverses its action, as they have already de
cided not to allow any passes to be issued for
Johnstown Snnday. Lost Snnday the town
was crowded with loafers, and we are deter
mined to prevent that if we possibly can. The
(sheriff of Westmoreland county lias declared
that be w illlKiard the train when it Teaches his
haliwick. and any man who has npt a pass he
will compel him to leave the train.
Regular Train to the East.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company is
running their two regular trains to the
East via the Allegheny Valley and Pbil
adephia and Erie, qs "announced in THE
Dispatch of yesterday. The time con
sumed is not as long as was at first anticl
Dated, as excellent time is being made as to
connections. The freight traffic is getting
in a much better shape also, and lit is
thought that in a few days the blockade
will be removed entirely. Nine carloads
of provisious wereseqt up for the relief of
the sufferers at 1 o'clock yesterday.
The traffic on the West Penn will be di
vided. Mr. "Wilson, the Assistant Superin
tendent, says that 375 csrs of east
bound freighr wonld be sent East over
the Allegheny Valley road every day from
Pittsburg to Bed Bank, where the low
grade road wonld be reached, instead of
taking it up on the West Penn from here to
Allegheny Jnnctiop, The coke trade and
heavy freight from east ot the Southwest
Junction wpnld go east to the. Bqljvar
bridge, come down the West Penn through
Blairsville to the Allegheny Junction above
Freeport, then up to the Allegheny Vallpy
to Bed Bank and over the low grade di
vision. Tbe P. B. B. in running around by
the Allegheny Valley and Drjftwopd agrees
not t6 sell passenger tickets on that parrot"
the road covered by the Allegheny Valley
Bailroad, and thus avoid a species of rivalry
in the traffic
Over the Other Rond,
Eight carloads of provisions and cjotljing
for the Johnstowp sufferers were sent to tljat
citv over the Baltimore and Ohio vesterdar.
The Baltimore and Ohio still continues to
handle pearly all the perishable freight; and
live stock thot ordinarily goes over the
Pennsylvania Bailroad. Tbe tbrpngh trains
to the East over this road are not making
such bad time as might have been expected,
considering the disagreeable condition, of
the roads. The first section of tbe through
train was only three hpurs Jate ye$terdav,
while that ol the second segtiop was a trifle
over four hours behind.
Yesterday afternoon the Baltimore and
Ohio peqoie put on an extra through train
ior Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia
ta Jfvw York. This was fhpnd to be aq
absolute necessity, in order to accommodate
the enprmous anioput of travej over lhat
road1 resulting from, the Jobnstown,disMter.

The two Johnstownpolicemen, David anil
George Hedrick, who have been persistently
reported as dead, are now known positively
to be alive and well. A friend of theirs
called at tbe church yesterday and informed
the committee that be had just left them in

On the hospital train whjeh arrived earjy
yesterday morning there was among the
passengers a woman whose cqndition was
pitiable. She had lost all her relatives
and her home had been carried away, but at
first she d.jd pot seem to comprehend her
loss, and went to work with a vim nursing
and caring for the sick and injured. At
last the strain proved too much for her, and
she succumbed. Her reason was dethroned,
and she 'became violently insane. She was
brought to this city in charge of Miss Dr.
Bennet, chief of the violent ward at the
StateAsylnm in Norristown. TJptqalate
hour last night her name could not be Ascertained.
Another of the passengers was Thomas
Byan, a laborer employed at Johnstown by
Booth & Flinn, Yesterday he fell from a
roof and landed on some sharp-painted
lumber and sustained severe Internal inju
ries, from which it is said his recovery is
extremely doubtfnj. He resides on Penn
avenue above Thirty-first street
There was quite a pathetic scene at the
church during the afternoon. A lady vis
ited the rooms searching fpr her sister, Mrs.
Bearshanks, who resided ut 71 Maiu street,
Johnstown, The ladles or tbe committee
could give her no information, as such a
person had not been recognized as having
been assisted. The lady was in a great
state of excitement, and was aboqt to start
away when who should she rnn rigpt into
bnt her missing sister, who was coming into
the church. The sisters clasped each pther
about the neck and tears pf thanks were
shed, and a number of the ladies present
also found instant use for their handker

word of warning to the committee in charge

When the people of the whole civilized
world contributed liberally to the Oone
maugh Valley sufferers they did so because
they were horrified and wanted to help the
still living unfortunates to buy whatever
was necessary for their comfort Many
people on the full flush of ex
citement gaye more than they could

with sorrow, and they wanted to help the
Have the sufferers benefited as they
should bv this vast sum or money? Has ft
been distributed t? them yet? Wbq has it?
Half dozen men seem to have it; and the
Governor, who is reported to hove
a quarter of a million of it, has
called a member of tbe Pittsburg
committee to meet him in Philadelphia,
lorsootn to divine an tne money contnnutea
oy tne sorrowiut people ior uonnsown
sufferers among the sufferers of the Basque,
"hanna and other valleys. But it doesn't
make much difference to''the Johnstown
people, for by tbe way things are now con
ducted they won't get a dollar of the million
and more contributed.
The money sent to the Johnstown suffer
ers is in the hands of a "committee" which
is distributing it, but not as it was intended
to be, They are Bcarengering the whole
Conepjangh, JTJsklminetas and Allegheny
Valleys. They nreoleanlng up and burn

They are trying to make the air and water
sweet, not alone for Johnstown but for all
Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and
Ohio towns depending on the Allegheny
river water, This great jqb is, being done at
the expense of tbe sufferers alone. Their
mopey, contributed to their distress, Is be
ing spent In enormous sums every dy by
order of committees, dictators, etc, and if
the unfortunates don't watch themselves
they will pe sent a bill for shortage be

State matter. The State should scavenger

The State should have its Governor on
hand with Its sanitary machinery commis

the Conemangh for the benefit of Pittsbnrg
and Allegheny, and not make the poor un

having it in charge should be held to a
strict account for expenditures for anv other
purpose than an equitable division of the
cash contribution among them.
The contributors don't care forthequelity

be divided soon. Many are, drifting away,

A Pathetic Discovery.
At 2 o'clock on Fridnr the ronfwas raised
and tbe bodies were found. First, Loa Di
nant, an udopted child, aged 13; then Mr.
Djller with bis baby boy under his arm.
and lastly his wife, lying olose byhls'side.
The bricks sustaining the heavy slate roof
having been battered down by the crush,
fell upon the doomed family, gathered in
tbe highest room for safety. They were
thrown upon their faces, and death, or at
least Unconsciousness, must have been im
mediate. Mr. filler's heavy hunting case
watch, which must hove run a few minutes
after the water reached it, recorded :33
The bodies were taken' charge of by tbe
Eev, Mr. Brpgdop, embalmed, and buried
temporarily in the presence of the few mem

be notified. The notice was not extended,

Spring bargains in evaporated fruihv-L
Spring bargains mean prices less than half;
the cost of production. Hot weather wilt
soon be here, and holders of evaporated
fruits are getting nervous. Uverythingi
must be rushed off in the next three weeks
regardless of price.
Italian pranelles,. 4 lbs., 23c; import
duty is 3c per pound. Figure out how much
thr fruit-raising son of Italy made. '
Fancy imparted prunes. 4 lbs.. 25c: CalU
form's plums (monsters), 4. lbs, 25c; Call
fornia apricots, 4 lbs. 25c; evaporated
peaches, 6 lbs. 2oe; evaporated pared
peaches, 10c per lb.; California evaporated
pears, 10c; per lb.
These-prices are certainly low enongb to
paralyze the fruit growers, but they come
to you just right now yonr home-made jel
lies and preserves, are all used,, and new
fruits have not vet appeared.
6 cans blackberries, 25c. These are large
berries and solid packed cans. You can
buy nothing better. As the retail price of
the cans- alone is 45c per dozen, you can
