Ileal Wake Brought to a Sodden Terml
nation. Matters about Old City Hall, the distributing
agency of the Johnstown Relief Committee,
were exceedingly quiet yesterday, and the
overworked clerks had a breathing spell for the
first time since the flood occurred.
Seated, about on boxes and lounging on
blankets stretched upon the floor, they talked
o er the incidents of the past few days, ever
and anon jumping up to wait upon some poor
unfortunate who wandered in forlorn and al
most clotheless. and who left with a heart
lighter than for many days and raiment at least
dry and comfortable.
"The great majority of people to whom we
have given clothing during the past v eek,"
said one of the gentlemanly clerks, "were
thoroughly deserving: .in fact. I don't believe
vc struck a single impostor until last night,
when who should walk in with an order for a
pair of shoes but a well-known jeweler
of this city. The order was signed by a
member of the Committee on Transportation,
and fearing it was a forgery, I sent to Mr.
Bennett to find out. His reply was that the
order was genuine. Upon learning this I
offered the descendant of Adam the best
we had. but that was not good enough for him.
He said he wanted a new pair of shoes, worth
about $4. and scornfully put aside a pair
of second hand patent leathers which we
A Shoe Store Wouldn't Do.
"At last I was compelled to send him to Mr.
Himuielrich, but the latter refused to supply
him, and he came back to tell us that he would
return on Monday, when he would expect to bo
supplied. His business up at Johnstown was
assisting the sufferers, but with characteristic
enterprise he didn't care about working for
nothing, and in lieu of money he was willing to
"Another incident of a somewhat humorous
nature occurred last night. It was related by
Michael Sullivan, who rescued Superintendent
Steele, of the Cambria Natural Gas Company.
Michael's mother lives at the Point, and
among the list of tbe dead she read
the name of her son. As is
the custom with some, a wake was arranged
for Friday night, and n hen it was at its height.
in walked the supposed corpse, alive ana well.
The wake was immediately declared off and a
general jollification followed. Sullivan was an
employe of tbe Cambria Iron Company, and
although he escaped with his life be lost every
thing else be owned in the world, including
300 he had saved out of his earnings to pay a
mortgage on his mother's property.
A Clcrcyman'a Wants.
"Still another incident, and one which re
flects a trifle on the clergy, comes to my mind.
On Saturday afternoon a well-dressed indi
vidual walked in with an order for a general
outfit. I asked htm what he wanted, and he
said he didn't exactly know. He'd just got a
new suit of clothes, and he thought he'd take
a look round and see what we had. However,
be thought he'd take a hat anyhow. I showed
him our stock of hats, but none of them suited
him: they were all dark hats and he said he
wautcda light one for summer wear, re
marking incidentally that he'd lost enough,
without paying out money for a hat.
I asked him what he'd lost, and
his reply was four children and a wife. Upon
hearing this I intimated that nnder the circum
stances a black hat would be tbe most appropri
ate and would cause no comment, whereupon
the alleged sufferer said that he was a minister,
and that nobody would think anvthingof his
wearing a light hat anyhow. This made me
angry, and I told him I didn't think we could
suit him, and the minister left in disgust."
The above and like experiences, to the credit
of humanity be it said, have been few and far
between, being tho exception rather than tbe

Hlf ernlnns Think Some cf the Delegatea to
the Johnstown Convention Wero Lost.
Tbe annual meeting of the county organiza
tion of the Ancient Order of Hibernians was
held yesterday afternoon, at which the follow
inc county officers were elected for the ensuing
jean-County Delegate, a Rocbford, re
elected; County Corresponding Secretary,
Thomas Burke, re-elected; County Financial
Secretary, David Dixon, and County Treasurer,
Thomas Ford. John McFarland was elected
State Delegate for the fourth time.
After the election of tbe above named officers

Tbe members of the order are somewhat
alarmed for tbe safety of some of their mem
bers, who they tbmk may have been at Johns
town during the flood. It will be remembered
that the State convention of the order was
held at Johnstown on tbe 29th and 30th ultimo,
and fears are expressed that some of the East
ern members may have remained over. To
allav this f ear a committee of two will visit
Johnstown to-morrow, and will make a thor
ough investigation as to whether or not any of
tbe delegates were lost. The committee con

Farland. At the State convention Major McKnight
and Thomas McFarland, of this city, were
elected State Treasurer and Secretary, re

An Incident of the Flood on the Susquehanna
Hirer A Conductor' Story.
Pullman Conductor Hutchinson, who was
stranded at Harrisburg the night of the flood,
told a very interesting story at the conductors'
rooms yesterday, of bow tbe flood affected tbe
Susquehanna river at that point. He said that
when they found that tbey could go no further,
and would have to lie over in Harrisburg, the
passengers and train men turned their atten
tion to tbe river. Tbe water bad risen to with
in a few inches of the Btring-piece of the
bridge, and the river was covered over with
lumber of all sorts, from the smooth-hewn
Elanks to the tree trunk just fallen. These
uge logs would come rushing donn tho river
at a high speed, only to knock against the
stnng-picce of the bridge with a force that,
though ponderous as they were, compelled
( tueni to rebound several feet, and the churning
of the water would cans them to go nnder the
bridge. As night came on and everything grew
dark and quiet, the frequent collisions of logs
and bridge became more distinct, and more
than once the cry went up, "There goes the
bridge!" Finally a happy thought struck one
of the passengers. He procured a lot of red
Are and Bengal lights, and in a few minutes
the entire river presented a most picturesque
appearance. The lumber, as it came down the
river, was brought into the plainest view, and
while the waters were churning the crests of
tbe little waves' danced about like rubies in the
sunlight. Mr. Hutchinson was quite enthusi
astic in speaking of the scenes, and said that,
taken as a whole, it was the most wierdly
picturesque affair he had ever witnessed.
BEKEFT OF EEASON.
A Woman In n Dying Condition Attempts
to Commit Snlcide.
A woman who gave her name as Elvira
Doutbam, about 43 years of age, attempted to
commit suicide yesterday afternoon by jump
ing from a four-story window at the European
Hotel on Liberty street. Fortunately her in
tentions were discovered by an employe in the
building just as she? was about to make the fa
tal leap, and tbe woman was dragged in from
tbe window sill. The patrol wagon was sum
moned and sbesvas taken to the Central sta
tion, where she was examined by Dr. Oldshue,
who ordered her sent to tbe HomcopathicHos
pitaL The doctor says tbe unfortunate woman is
slightly demented and is suffering from a dis
ease of the heart that will probably end fatally
in a day or two. Her borne is at New Brighton.
Pa., and she has a sister living somewhere in
this citv, whom she came here to visit but
could not find.

Rev. Dr. SatberlandTellslhe Union Veterans
It Is Right to Battle Tbe Fight lor
The Rev. Dr. Sutherland, pastor of the Sec
ond Presbyterian Church, preached an Inter
esting sermon, on the duties man owes to both
Church and State, last evening. The services
were especially for the members of the Union
Veteran Legion, which organization attended
tbe church in a body.
He took for bis text the twenty-first verse of
the twenty-second chapter of Matthew:
'Bender therefore nnto Ca:ser the things which
arcCxser's, and unto God the things which are
In beginning tbe sermon he dwelt for a short
time on tbe combination effected by the Phari
sees! and Hcrodians in order to entrap and de
stroy Christ. The Pharisees, chafing under
Roman rule, desired to do away with tbe
Savior, as did also the Herodians, who were
loyal to Rome. Both sects desired to see Christ
destroyed, and in order to entrap Him asked
the question: "Is it lawful to pay tributo to
Cassar or not?" Should He answer affirmative
ly the Pharisees would charge Him with dis
loyalty to the people. Should Ho answer
negatively, the Herodians would charge Him
with being a traitor to Caesar's Government.
But Christ was not to be entrapped, hence
His answer: "Render, therefore, unto Cxser
the things which are Casset's and unto God the
things which are God's."
Continuing. He said: "The Church is the
Commonwealth of grace, the State is the Com
mnnwe<h of instlce. The Christian owes
allegiance to both. The Christian Is Interested
in public affairs, or should be, because they are
intimately connected with tbe free exercise of
his duties to God and man. Everything con
spires to make a Christian love bis country
to be a patriot in tbe best sense of the word.
Love of home is the foundation of patriotism,
but it does not rest there. Patriotism Is a
moral, and therefore a freely chosen course of
conduct. It involves devotion to the Constitu
tion, to the institutions and the manners and
customs of the nation to which we belong.
It is not fear, nor force, nor self interests that
bind States and peoples together. All these
are, or ought to be, secondary motives. It is
true that they do influence men, but where
they are supreme there is not and cannot be
true patriotism. We ought to have an intelli
gent love for the State. It could not come
from the fact that the State provides offices for
so many people. This used to be regarded as
tbe 'Ohio idea.' It is barely possible that there
may be a little of Pennsylvania in It, too,
although I should not like to venture an
opinion as to that.
Another error to bo guarded against is indif
ference to public affairs so long as one can
make money. There are those who value tbeir
country chiefly because of the opportunities it
affords for making monev. Their loyalty has
simply a money basis. Under the purest sys
tem of government, tbe longing for place and
ambition for power are apt to stifle the voice of
conscience, even with the thoughttnl and sin
cere. The trouble is that human pride and hu
man ambition decline to sacrifice tbe individu
al. A little moro of the patriotism of the pat
tern of Jesus of Nazareth would reform
our Congress and -Legislature, and puri
fy our divorce courts and restrict
our liquor traffic and sweep away our ostenta
tious luxury and do more for the safety and
honor of our country than could be done by
any other force. What shall be said then of
tnose sen-styiea leauers or imitative retormers,
who in their several fields of activity exhibit;
qualities at once selfish, sordid and corrupt,
who in politics, in the clnb, in trade, in society,
in the ball of legislation, and even in tbe
schemes of benevolence, are evidently active
only the deeper to hide some scheme, are gov
erned by motives unworthy of Christian man
hood and true patriotism.
We want men whom the Inst of office does
not kill. Men whom the spoils of office cannot
buy. Men who possess opinions and a will.
Men who have honor. Men who will not lie.
Now, having these convictions about patriot
ism, 1 esteem it a privilege to welcome to this
service to-night you, the members of tbe Union
Veteran Legion, wbose patriotism was sealed
by a service in behalf of your country. Yours
was a voluntary service, and on that account
all the more deserving of recognition and ap
preciation. I do not think the time bas come in the bis
tory of the world when force can be laid aside.
The law of force, whether as applied in tho
household, in '"je school, in the community or
in the nation, cannot as yet be wholly dispensed
There may be worse evils than war, the opin
ions of our sentimentalists to the contrary not
withstanding. You cannot read history or
study events without seeing that the sword has
had a place in the march of freedom and in the
progress of tbe race. What Christian men
ought to see Is that the cause is good; that war
is the only alternative; that, having exhausted
all the pleas of reason, all the entreaties of
persnason, all tbe appeals of pathos, nothing is
to be done but to fight the enemy with his own
As Christians we must not delude ourselves
Into tho notion tbat we are .only called to the
calm of the Sabbath, and tbe security of the
sanctuary and the delights of the meadow and
tbe summer holiday of tbe verdant woods
filled with the sweet music of birds. We are
liable to be called to battle, to loss, to die far
away from borne on the battlefield, in tbe hos
pital, or on the line of march. And rightly ac
cepted obedience to such a call means heroism
on earth and coronation in heaven. It is "ren

I SOULS ARE LOST,
Rev. Mr. Williams Outlines the
DEATH ONLY A CHANGE.
Man Die so Far ns the Body Is Concerned
Every Seven Tears, and Whnt Wo Call
Death Is Only n Sudden Chanco Liko One
of These Gradual Ones.
Rev. "W. S. 'Williams, pastor of the Univer
salist church, spoke yesterday morning on
"What Unlvsrsallsts Believe Regarding Life
and Immortality." The large hall over the
gas company's office on Sixth street, in which
the services of this church are held, was well
filled, many being present who are not regular
attendants at this church, but were drawn
doubtless by a desire to have,a clear and au
thoritative definition of the Universalist belief
regarding the life beyond the grave.
Mr. "Williams took his text from Second
Timothy, i, 10: "Who abolished death and
brought life and immortality to light." In the
commencement the speaker showed that the
Universalist faith was a direct and emphatic
challenge to the common idea tbat life stops at
death and begins anew in another world. The
Universalist believed that life never stopped.
There Is No Next Lite.
If there was such a thing as life ceasing it
would never begin. One correst thought, main
tained as a fundamental principle, is the truth
tbat whatever is, never can cease to be. Life
is; it could never cease to be. It could never
stop. There is no Next. When people speac
of tbe next life, they speak incorrectly. The
life that is always will be.
So regarding immortality. There are those
who speak of the next life as the immortal life;
but man is already immortal, be could not in
the nature of things bo otherwise. If he isn't
immortal now ho never can be. He is immor
tal now. and his immortality could not in any
way be conditional upon what be does.
Man is not is to be immortal. Death, the
speaker thought, was only one of the changes
in his Immortality. Nor was it the only one.
There was the change from childhood to man
hood. There was the change from manhood
to old age. Death was only a change like these,
perhaps less clearly nndcrstood.
Man Dies Every Seven "Years.
The Universalist regarded death simply as
one of tbe stages in our immortal progress. It
affected the body. It was a physical change
and It did not stand alone. Man really dies
once every seven years, as to tbe body. Once
every seven years there is a complete change.
When what we term death occurs, we simply
drop at once what we have been dropping
gradually every seven years since we have been
Reasoning from analogy the speaker held
that our immortal life, like all life, was a state
of progress, that there was no such thing as
loss, that after death all souls grew on better,
happier, that to speak of a lost soul was to
speak of what could never be in the nature of
things. Life knew no loss.
In conclusion Mr. Williams took issue with a
Pittsburg divine, who had been quoted as rele
gating the Johnstown disaster to his list of vis
tations of divine wrath. The calamity came
not from the wrath of God, bat simply from
disobedience or negligence of natural laws. It
was neither in reason nor in Christianity to at
tribute it to the wrath of God.
Not a Visitation ot Providence.
It was Christ who said: "Those upon whom
the town of Siloam fell and killed them. Think
ye they were worse than other men." The
horror attendant upon the Johnstown disaster,
from the human side, could not be avoided.
The toss, the apparent pain, the separation, all
theso were terrible. But from tbe divine side,
there was no horror there. Those bodies
wrapped in sand and debris were simply the
freil tenements of souls, that lire forever,
growing as they live, unchanged by accident or
A Meeting; to be Held Next Sunday to Con
slder tho Raising; of Money.
At 3 o'clock next Sunday afternoon a meet
ing of the congregation of St Panl's Cathedral
will be held to consider plans for repainting
and decorating the edifice. It is estimated that
at least SS,()00 will be required for that purpose.
Rev. Father Murphy preached the sermon
yesterday morning, and spoke in feeling terms
of the sufferers by tho flood. He did not place
the blame upon anyone, nor spoke of it as a
visitation of Providence.
About 200 persons were confirmed at the aft
A Prosperous Chnrch.
At a congregational meeting of the Second
M. P. Church, Fifth avenue and Marion street,
held yesterday. Rev. George Shaffer was unan
imously re-elected for another year, this being
tbe seventh consecutive year of his pastorate.
During the Rev. Mr. Shaffer's pastorate the
membership bas increased from 190 to 450 mem
bers, and tbe income of the church has dou
bled. During the present year about 100 new
members have been added. Mr. C.V. Batchelor
was elected delegate to the annual conference,
which convenes in Springdale, Pa., the first

"William Hohan, Thomas Garvey and Thomas

THE PLUMBERS' CONTENTION.
A Programme Is Being Prepnred A Large
Delegation Expected lo Arrive Its If"
portnnce to the Public
The arrangements for the general conven
tion of Master Plumbers' of the United
States are being prepared and the officers
are speaking very hopefully of a grand suc
cess. Some of the most important subjects for
sanitation, drainage and sewerage will be
discussed, and among the subjects to come
under the discussion of the delegates the
following are mentioned: ,
First The best method of obtaining pure
water for country houses.
Second Under what circumstances
should water meters be applied in the use
of waters in cities?
Third What prospect is there for apply
ing the electrical science to plumbing?
Four The best methods of putting
water pipes in a building with a view of pro
tection against freezing.
The convention will be held on the 25th,
26th and 27th of June, in a large hall in
the late People's Store, on Wood street.
Mr. Charles Humbert, the president, stated
yesterday, that a convention of this kind is
of the greatest importance for the general
public, because at these conventions the
latest improvements and developments of
sanitation are discussed and made known to
the different men in the business.
Since the organization of the Master
Plumbers Association almost every city of
any note has established sanitary laws
through the influence of this association.
All advantages of sanitary conditions are
largely due to the efforts of the plumbers.
There are about 500 delegates expected to
arrive, and with their wives and families
the number of visitors will probablv reach
