ALL LAWYERS AGREE.
Governor Beaver's Only Way to
Call the Legislature
PRIVATE BONDS NOT GOOD,
The announcement that Governor Beaver
'was to draw on the State Treasurer for the
.funds to clear up Johnstown, raised a furor
yesterday anions the members of the General
Relief Committee and lawyers of the city.
Tho legality of the action was discussed on
every hand, with the same result that It was
not legal. Some members of the Executive
Committee of the General Relief Fund ex
pressed it as their opinion that the Governor
would not get the money at all, without calling
a special session of the Legislature
In view of the action taken by the Governor,
the committee do not feel sure by any means
that their troubles are over. If the Governor
cannot get the money until the Legislature is
called together what is to be done in the mean
time, -with the work to be suspended by Booth
fc Fltnn to-night and no promise of a pay day?
Besides, the pay rolls of Booth & Flinn's men,
according to agreement, are to bo paid by the
committee and refunded by the Governor, but
when? With a view of finding outthelegal opin
ions of some of the lawyers in the city best
posted on matters of State government in re
gard to the legality of the Governor's plan of
raising the fund, a corps of Dispatch report
ers was sent ont yesterday and returned with
the following Interviews:
A Section That Settle It.
Mr. George Shlras, Jr., would not give his
opinion in words, but taking down a copy of
the State Constitution be turned to section IS,
which reads as follows, and, pointing to it, said
that it and the paragraphs that follow it are
Section 18 No money shall be paid out of the
treasury except on appropriation made by law
aud on a warrant drawn by the proper officer In
Hon. John Dalzell was loth to give his opin
ion on political principles, but agreed with the
others. "Any lawyer will understand my opin
ion," said Mr. DiIzqII, as he handed the re
porter the following:
I would prefer not to express any opinion
an the subject, because I am perfectly satisfied
that Governor Beaver will net take any step in
the direction indicated without deliberation
and consultation with the Attorney General of
the Commonwealth, and I fee! perfectlv satis
fied that upon deliberation Governor Beaver,
as a lawyer, will reach the same conclusion that
the Attorney General will reach on consul
tation, because there is only one opinion, in my
judgment, open to any lawyer. That opinion
will be the opinion I entertain now."
Not One Cent.
Ex-Jndge Fetterman said: "It is impossible
for the Governor to appropriate funds from
the treasury for one cent or JLOOO.COO without
a special session or the Legislature author
izing him to do it. It makes no difference
whether the bonds of 00 or 2.000 men are given
as security. The office of the Treasurer is lim
ited, and one of the limitations is that he shall
not pay out any funds without consent from
the Legislature on the request of the Governor
or anyone else. It would be a malfeasance In
office and his bondsmen would be held liable.
"If $1,000,000 is appropriated it must be
through a special session of the Legislature,
The consistency of the thing is impossible.
Impossible to Divert Funds.
"The Legislature will not meet again for a
year and ft half, and how can the Treasurer
vert funds from the use tney were intended for
and appropriate them to something else? It is im
possible. If it were so, any legislator might
borrow funds on bis bond and the very office
of the Treasurer gone and the treasury would
De naught Dut a rank lor dealings.
"The Governor must have consulted with his
Attorney General, but if he has decided on
this plan of raising the funds, he could hardly
have considered the question, as it is utterly
Impossible, unconstitutional and illegitimate,
and dangerous precedent."
Major Brown Is Emphatic
Major A. M. Brown, who is classed very high
as a gentleman well informed on the Constitu
tion, said in answer to The Dispatch's
query: "The Governor has no power whatever
to individually appropriate, funds from the
State treasury without the Legislature says so;
no matter if be does offer a bond given by good
.people. Perhaps, however, he intends to as
sume the responsibility of the proposed action
.and hope for a confirmation by the Legislature
when it convenes in two years. The State
Treasurer has no legal right to give the money
upon the order of the Governor, as he is there
to protect the treasury and the people's money.
"It seems to me, considering the vast import
of the Johnstown matter, it would be nothing
more than bounden nrourietv to call tlie Legis
lature together again to appropriate the sum
proposed. It is expensive, that's true, but the
circumstances arc such that would warrant all
outlay of funds in accomplishing such a great
and necessary good."
Hon. Thomas M. Marshall said in his charac
teristic, manner, "No more right than I have."
when he was questioned on the matter. "Itii
Simply out ot all reason for Governor Beaver
to take the stand he has in off ering to abstract
practically from the treasurv $1,000,000 without
being legalized so to da The law and Consti
tution govern such things, and they must be
It la Utterly Unconstitutional.
John C. Shoemaker, ex-Deputy Secretary of
tbetCommonwealth under Governor Paulson,
said: "It Is utterly unconstitutional, and it can
sot be done as proposed by the Governor.
"Of course Governor Beaver has the authori
ty to call the Legislature together, which body
can legally agree to appropriate the money,
hut his power relating to this matter stops at
that. 1 think under the appalling circum
stances an extra session shonljue held."
Other legal gentlemen who are "up" on the
affairs of the State coincided with the views of
the former ones to a letter.
U. C Dickey. Esq., coincided with the others
whose interviews are given above. Ho said:
"The bondsmen of the the Treasurer would be
responsible, for the transaction would be a
personal one with him the same as though they
obtained the money from a private party. It is
certainly unconstitutional, and he would have
to trust wholly to the Legislature to help him
SPRING WATER IS BAD.
DrMeCandles, of the Bnrcau of Health,
Says That They Emanate From
Street Sewer. Better Boll
Last night Dr. J. Guy McCandless, Registrar
of the Board of Health, made an important
statement. At the direction of Chief Brown,
of the Department of Safety, he had examined
as many of the springs in the city as possible.
He found the water from ail of them cool and
apparently clear, but with ooe exception, a
spring on the Miller property on Center avenue,
ail of the water was bad, and full of the germs
of disease. He found that the water in some
cases came from city sewers, a break in the
pipe allowing it to escape, bat in most in
stances the flow could be traced to a cesspool.
Dr. McCandless urges the people not to use
spring water, hut to use the nver water as it is
Dr. McCandless said a filter could be made
hy any person that would answer all purposes,
and his .directions arc as follows: Take a flower
pot and place a sponge in the bottom of it.
Over this put ft little gravel and then fill the pot
-with charcoal. Run the water through the
flower not into another vessel, and much of Its
Impurities will be taken away.
Has Anybody Seen the Boy?
Morgan Zimmerman, son of D. J. Zimmer
man, CS Singer street, Johnstown, was seen on
a raft of old rubbish 15 miles below the town
on the day of the flood. He was a little boy, 9
years of aga, barefooted, and had no coat on,
.and was stripped to the waist. Tbo supposi
C tion is that the boy is living, and.anv infarma-

Reports from Dr. Lee and the members of
the Stato Board of Health at Johnstown are to
the effect that the general health up there is
excellent and that prompt sanitary measures
have precluded the possibility of an epidemic.
He said to J. R. Thompson, the board's Med
ical Examiner for the Western District of
Pennsylvania, yesterday afternoon: "There is
comparatively little sickness of any kind in the
Concmaugh Valley now, and even that little is
confined to a few cases of severe sore throat
and some cases of measles. Considering the
fact that nearly everybody in the valley Is
almost worn completely out, this exceedingly
gratifying condition of affairs is most remarkable."
"How about the river water now; is it fit to
"Well, I don't see that there Is much danger
from it now, but, as many havo an aversion for
it, it would probably be just as well for them to
continue boiling it for some time to come."
"What sanitary measures are being resorted
to at Johnston n to purify the district?"
"Every possible precaution known to medi

with a lavish hand, and the amount is only cur

However, we to-day managed to get up a large

There was a meeting of the Allegheny
County Medical Society in the office of Dr. T.
L T. McKennon, No. S12 Penn avenne, yester
day morning. The society appropriated Sl.oCO

Johnstown, and appointed Drs. Foster, Mc
Candlcssand Murdoch to distribute it. The

After the meeting Dr. McKennon stated to
the writer that while he thought all possible
danger of an epidemic from a flood had
passed, he would advise all who can possibly do
so to either boil their drinking water or use
mineral water for some little time to come.
The doctor fears a drouth, however, and says
that in case of a low stage of water in the
rivers no end of sickness may follow.
The Ladles' Relief Committee Attended to

The Second Presbyterian Church was yester
day the scene of the greatest activity. A large
number of the refugees were children who had
lost all they knew or cared about. They were
provided with new clothing, fed ana furnish -d
with shelter, and the ladies, one and all, despite
any ieeling that may exist among them, were
uniting in their efforts to do; good. Several
pathetic cases came to the surface during the
day, and made some of the more tender hearted
ladies feel for their handkerchiefs.
One little fellow named Cnnz, who was about
13 years old, and who conld not realize that his
mother was dead, went to Mrs. Dr. Kaston, the
efficient head of the Bureau of Information and
requested her to telegraph to Johnstown to his

The front doors of the chnrch were closed
during the entire day, and people were only ad

some comment, but the cause of such action
could not be learned. In the evening it was so
warm that the janitor humanely opened the
front doors to admit of ventilation.
A SKIFE SQUADRON.
Captain Lew Clark Will Command a Fleet
of Small Boats Which Will Float
Down From Johnstown,
A novelist in search of the marvelous and
realistic would find oceans of the truth that is
stranger than fiction in a trip by water from
Johnstown to Pittsburg. But no literary mo
tive impelled Captain Lew Clark, of the
steamer Mayflower, to undertake this more
than interesting voyage. The Captain left tor
Johnstown yesterday morning at 8 o'clock ac
companied by the following gentlemen: W. P.
Clark, F. A. Bailey, A. L.' Bailey, Harry Gold,
Harry MacKay, George Burke, of Oakland, and
Messrs. Phillips, of the Iron City Docks.,
It seems that five skiffs and a full equipment
of tackle, pikepoies, etc, were taken to Johns
town by Captain Clark, who placed himself at
the disposal of the authorities and did great
work in bridge building and direction of work
ing forces. Captain Clark's enenrv was
warmly complimented in a letter sent
by General Hastings to Wilson & Bailey,
owners of the Mayflower. There
was no more work to be done by the skiffs and
the steamer must have them for ber scheduled
trips. Several attempts to have them returned
by rail were made, but the Pennsylvania Rail
road is not returning freight from Johnstown
for love or money. Tho idea then occurred to
bring back the skiffs by water, and a party was
formed to make the trip. An abundant supply
of edibles was taken along and the start from
Johnstown will be made this morning. It is
the intention to proceed only by day, camping
out along shore during the nights, and it was
estimated that the trip will take at least four
daye. The Conemaugh is a father rough stream
and is still swollen from the flood, and the voy
age to Blairsville on the- Conemaugh will have
to be carefully made. From Blairsville down
to Allegheny Junction over the Kiskiminetas
still greater caution will have to be observed.
On the Allegheny it will be plain sailing, of
course. If any bodies are found by Captain
Clark's party a careful record will be made and
the place of interment will be carefully noted.
CHICAGO METHODISTS TO ASSIST.
They Will Lend Tbelr Aid to Dr. Chapman
and III) Concrecntlon.
At a meeting of the Methodist ministers of
Chicago yesterday, the question of relief for
tho Johnstown sufferers was undet'disenssion,
nnd paitlcularly of relieving the wants of
Methodist ministers and needy laymen in that
section. A long letter from Rev. C. W. Smith,
of Pittsburg, editor of the Christian Advocate,
was read. It described the calamity; said that
all that was necessary for present needs had
been done, and closed as follows:
'l do not like to advise as to benefactions, bnt I
can tell you our arrangements, ilouey has been
sent tu this otnee from all quarters, ana after con
sultation with Dr. Chapman, of Johnstown, and
brethren here, we havo decided to hold it for the
present, using each sums as maybe necessary to
meet all cases cowing to our knowledge and have
the remainder for use hen the tighter pinch will
come a little later on. and the ernerxl Bfmmthv
has subsided. As soon as Dr. Chapman and his
rieople begin to get on their iect they will nnd
belr wants and those about them, and we can
supply them. This is oar plan."
A committee was appointed to receive dona
tions for the Methodists of Johnstown.
THE MONEY FOUND OS COflPSES.

CHARITY'S NEW FORM
Novel Enterprise of Pitts
burg Church Goers.
TO REBUILD THE TEMPLES.
Johnstown People Will Not be Allowed to
Contribute a. Cent The Restored Sanc
tuaries to be Banded Over to Them ns
Gifts of Christian Fellovrahlp Vari
ous Denominations Already Moving.
Allegheny county bas evolved a new form of
charity for the benefit of the flood sufferers. It
is proposed that by a united effort the church
goers here shall rebuild all the ruined churches
of Johnstown, and not allow the bankrupt con
gregations ot Johnstown to contribute a sin
gle cent toward the work. vA very wealthy
gentleman connected with one of the down
town Presbyterian churches, was the first to
make the suggestion. He believes that It will
be utterly Impossible for the Johnstown sur
vivors to build up their churches again for a
year to come. They have not only lost their
families and homes, bnt iu most instances all
their money. It will be enough for them to do
to gather enough funds together to erect mod
est little homes.
The gentleman's suggestion was that each re
ligions denomination in Pittsburg and Alle
gheny appoint a committee to ascertain exactly
how much money will be required to rebuild
or repair the church or churches of their own
depomination swept away or damaged by the
flood in Johnstown, together with parsonages,
chapels, etc. Then let each denomination ap
portion this amount among its churches in
Pittsburg and Allegheny, or in the whole county,
to bo raised by popular subscription, the com
mittee to be continued to attend to the con
struction of the churches, to pay all bills, and
finally to turn them over completed and free to
the Johnstown survivors.
Prckbyterlaas and Episcopalians Ready.
This gentleman said the Presbyterians ot
Pittsburg would be among the first to start the
movement, although from modesty he desires
his name and identity withheld until the
clergymen of his own denomination formally
organize for the purpose. The reporter could
not lt-arn yesterday that this has yet been done
by Presbyterian ministers.
Bishop Whitehead was asked by a DISPATCH
reporter yesterdav afternoon how the Episco
pal denomination would regard such a propo
sition. "Our church proposes to rebuild the
Episcopal edifice at Johnstown for tne sur
vivors without waiting for a general move
ment," he said. "However, the proposition is
worthy of Pittsburg, and we shall give it all
possible support. The Episcopal church at
Johnstown cost $25,000. It was all swept
away by the flood. Rev. A. P. .Diller,
the rector, and his family, were all
drowned. As Johnstown is in my diocese I
knew Mr. Diller well. To rebuild this church
the churches of Pittsburg and Allegheny,
possibly of the whole diocese, will be asked to
form a fund by subscription. Of course we
will not build a church as larze as the old one.
because the congrecation is not as large. It
was so fearfully reduced by the flood, a large
percentage of the members being drowned.
Therefore it will not cost so much as the former
Baptists nnd U. P.' at Work.
Rev.H. B. Grose, of the Fourth Avende
Baptist Church, said: "We are already on the
way of doing everything we can in that direc
tion. I went personally to Johnstown to see
what assistance was needed by our churches.
There are two of them, the Johnstown Baptist
Church and the Welsh Baptist Church, and.
from what I conld learn, there are about $20,000
wanted by both churches. I found another
gentleman at the scene of the disaster who had
come for the same purpose as myself. A con
sultation led us to do this: I wrote a proposi
tion to two of the largest Baptist papers in the
country, in which I stated that all the pastors
were requested to take up collections to help the
churches which have suffered in the disaster
to be rebuilt. We propose to do tbat,and also to
pay the salaries of the pastors for one year.
From the present outlook I have no doubt we
shall have the required sum in a very short
Mr. Flndley". of the United Presbyterian
book depository, stated that their church were
considering several suggestions in regard to
the matter. Among other things it has been
suggested that they open a subscription fund
in Mr Flndley's office for tho benefit of the
cnurcnes. .nowever, notning aennite has been
Tho Methodists' Ideas.
The Methodist Episcopal denomination will
probably not be found far behind in this move
ment. When asked yesterday what he thought
of the general propositlcn to rebuild Johnstown
churches with Pittsburg money alone, Mr. S.
Hamilton, the piano dealer, and one of tbe
most prominent laymen in that denomination.
said: "I am very much in favor of such a
scheme. However, as far as our denomination
is concerned, it might be more appropriate to
extend the privilege of rebuilding contribu
tions to tbe churches throughout the Pittsburg
Conference. That takes in a good
part of Southwestern Pennsylvania. Of
course, there are probably seven
men in the Methodist churches of Pittsburg
who alone could readily contribute tbe whole
sum, but the other plan would Interest all the
people and meet with a more hearty and gen
erous response. One of the Methodist churches
in Johnstown was entirely swept away, but tho
large stone M. E. Church was only damaged.
Its damages, however, are serious, I under
stand. I imagine from newspaper reports it
will take from 118,000 to $20,000 to give Johns
town two M. E. Churches again."
German Protestants and Catholic.
Rev. F. Ruoff, of the German Protestant
Church on Smithfield street, said: "While we
have not a church of our denomination in
Johnstown, we will nevertheless assist the
damaged German churches of other denomi
nations. All the beneficial societies connected
with our churches in this district, and there
are about Is of them, have so far subscribed
$30 each toward tbe suffering church in the
devastated district, and whenever the oppor
tunity arises to apply these lunds for the de
sired nnrnoses. I exoect that even more mnnpv
will bvready. Collections will then be made
in all the churches, I suppose. At present, of
course, the general suffering has to be alle
'viated." It appears that most of the Roman Catholic
churches in the flooded district have suffered
but very little. St. John's Church, in Johns
town, was burned down, but it was covered by
a sufficient amount of insurance from which it
might be rebuilt. The two churches in Cam
bria City are only slightly damaged.
ins lairio presnme," saia father Moly-
neaux, of St Paul's Cathedral, to a Dispatch
man yesterday, "that something will be done
when the time comes. It Is probable that the
Bishop will issue an appeal to tbe churches
asking for aid to help tbe churches, but as far
as I know nothing has been done yet" '

. SOME" SUGGESTIONS.
vStntfoni for the Analyses of Water Recora
mended Wrons to Deprive "Chil
dren of Enough to Drink
To the Editor of The DlipatcEi
Everywhere in Tlttsburg and Allegheny the
people are alarmed In. regard to' the river water,
fearing that it may breed a pestilence. The
springs in the adjacent hills and wells are being
drawn -upon- for water as they never were
drawn upon before. Even springs near the
cemeteries have come into use, which of c'ourse
are highly dangerous sources of water supply.
Thousands also are boiling the hydrant water,
obedient to the oft repeated advice of the
officials of the State Board of Health. No one
can tell as yet to a certainty whether or not
these precautions are necessary, but as the
advice comes from intelligent sources it Is. best
to act upon it.
But all this means a great annoyance to
many thousands of people. Boiled water is
extremely insipid and positively unpalatable
unless cooled with ice. It is, however, proba
bly moro wholesome thab melted ice water,
which many are using. So alarmed are tho
people of some families that the parents are
greatly curtailing the quantity of water thej
permit their children to drink, and the little
ones are cross and peevish in" consequence.
This is wrong, for a liberal use of water Is
needed at this season to carry off tbe secre
tions of the body and to make up the loss from
perspiration. The majority of people would
be more healthy if they used more water.
It occurs to the writer that if there be no Teal
cause for alarm the sooner our people know
tbe fact the better. In the multitude of duties
devolving upon tbe health authorities tbey
have perhaps offered their advice on the gen
eral principle that an ounce of prevention is
better than a pound of cure. Now, however,
it is time for them either to raise the embargo
or furnish reasons why it should be continued.
In this view of tbe case tbe following Sugges
tions are offered for what they are worth:
Establish a station on the Kisklminitas river
at Baltsburg, from which samples of the water
should be daily sent to Pittsburg for chemical
and microscopical examination, and another
station of the same kind, sav at Hulton, on the
Allegheny. Saltsbnrg is sufficiently far below
mac idek crecc to nave tne Denent or its pure
waters mixed with those from the Conemaugh.
If tbe waters there should be found impreg
nated with dangerous forms of material, then
move the station to the mouth of the Kiski
minitas and try the waters there. It is positively
necessary to know whether that stream is in a
dangerous condition, and just about how dan
gerous. If it is not dangerous at Its mouth
then we have no reason for alarm at Pittsburg.
Not only is this work demanded as a matter of
great practical moment, but an opportunity
exists to make tnese examinations oi special
scientific value, particularly if stations at
Johnstown and several points below were
The Kisklminitas river drains about 1.400
square miles, or forms about one-ninth of the
Allegheny river. Of this 600 square miles lie
in the valleys of the Conemaugh, South Fork
and Stony creek, above Johnstown. Tbe head
waters ot all these streams abound with trout,
and come down from the mountains fairly
charged with oxygen in amount, one would
think, capable of destroying a very consider
able quantity of impurities. The currents of
the Conemaugh and Kisklminitas are now
much slower than they were during the flood,
so that there is a much better opportunity for
the stream to purify itself.
A lew days of observation at the proposed
stations might demonstrate that there is no
cause for alarm, and certainly nothing would
he more satisfactory than such a report

Order Evolved Oct of Chaos Before the
State Takes Hold.
Johnstown, June 10. Mr. James B. Scott
said this afternoon: "Tbe work will continue
as it has until Wednesday morning, when every
thing will be handed over to the State. The
chiefs of all departments are now making out
reports, which will he given to the commission
appointed by the State. The work of relief
will likely be continued by the State on tne
same plan as heretofore. We are obtaining
some sort of system and have finally brought
some kind of orderout of chaos. The work of
relief will have to continue until the people
can take hold for themselves. When the Cam
bria Iron works and the other mills resume,
the people will be able to earn money. The
great aim just at present is to give the surviv
ors work. The State is to open a commissary
department, where goods will be sold until
tbe merchants will be able to again geton their
feet The line of chanty will gradually shade
into that ability of taking care of themselves.
Until that time has come the people will have
to be taken care of.
We are building storehouses along theB. fc
O. R. R, where the supplies will be stored
until it is necessary to use them, It has been
customary to distribute supplies to them almost
directly from the cars. This has caused con
fusion. This evil will soon be remedied. Sup
plies are still in demand.

Recommendation That Bodies bo Burled ns
Fast as Found.
fFEOH A STAFF COBBESFONDENT.3
Johkstows, June 10: It was current talk
to-night that Major Silllman, one of the sur
geons of the Second brigade, who is looking
after the morgues, would recommend that they
bo closed up to-morrow and all tbe bodies
found be buried as fast as recovered. The
doctor will report to the State Board to-morrow
morning. Manager Scott held a consultation
over the wires this evening with the Chamber
of Commerce at Pittsburg. He answered all
their questions and Bad a few requests to make.
Sheriff Stineman is pleased that the State is
taking bold. He says the county conld not af
ford to pay the expense. The Sheriff states
that he did not swear in more than 200 police
men, but the number has been increased to
about 800. Some were sworn in by tbe justices
in the city, and it is supposed others adopted
tbe tin badge and club for reasons of their
own. Nobody seems to know what has be
come of tbe Coroner of Cambria county. He
has not been here, so far as known, since Sat
urday. . Isbaei.

The' South Fork Fishing Club
About Closing Up.

at the Lake Will Not bo Forgotten bv
The South Fork Fishing Club will hold, a
meeting to-day or to-morrow, .and the organi
zation will in all probability take stop3 toward
a final dissolution of the association.
Mr. Henry Holdship, one of the oldest mem
bers, favored a Dispatch reporter with an
interview last night and during the conversa
tion that gentleman said that he for one would
never go back to the mountains. '
"Tho sad recollections of this disaster and
my unfortunate connection with it, would pre
vent me from ever going back to the place
again," he said.
Something, of course, will have to be done
in regard to the matter, and inasmuch as most
of the members of the club feel about the same
way about the matter, it is fair to presume
that a dissolution of tho organization will be
btought about as soon as possible. Whether
it would be of any benefit to anyDodvto bring
action against tne ciud lor tne recovery 01
damages can best be judged from the follow
ing remarks made by Mr. Holdship:
A Banded Indebtedness.
"It is true that the club bas a capital stock
of 535,000, but we have a property up in the
mountains of about 450 acres, and it is not all
paid for. There is a bonded indebtedness
against tbe club, and of conrse the men who
bought those bonds have to be paid first, be
cause tbey bought tho bonds innocently. We
also built a clubhouse which cost, I snppose.be
tween 520,000 and $30,000, and there is a mort
gage on that property. In all. I do not believe
that there is much property belonging to tbe
club on which could be levied. Of course, I
am making tnese statements only from my own
view of things, and I do nut claim any accuracy
of knowledge. While I have been a member of
the club for nine years, I am not an officer of
Dissolution at Hand.
"Do yon know when there will be a meeting
of tbe club?"
"No, I do not, but I suppose there will be
something done very soon."
"There are several men whose properties
were situated along the South Fork creek near
the dam. For Instance. John Lamb and old
man Fisher. What will you do about themT '
"Old man Fisher? Yes, I remember him weU.
Now all the property he has got he made from
tbe club members, and from the recollection I
have of his place 1 suppose it must be all
wasted away. Of course we will helD the man
when the proper time comes, at least I suppose
"What is the value of property up in the
"Ten dollars an acre, I believe. Is the price
paid. Of course it increased somewhat since
we were up there, and $15 or $20 were asked,
but 1 think that all tbe land a man wants can
be bought lor $10 an acre to-day,"
THE PEOPLE TAKING HEAET AGAIN.
Morrellville nnd Cambria Will Soon be Able
to Care lor Themselves.
rntOJI A ETAIT COBBESPONDElrir.l
Johnstown, June 10. Captain A. J. Logan
and Harry Paul returned to Morrellville this
evening. There is a great dearth of canned
vegetables, molasses, fruit kerosene oil and
stoves in the west end of the Conemaugh Val
ley. The Pennsylvania trains do not bring in
sufficient supplies for the people. Rev. Father
Boyle, of Gallitzln, who sent 200 men to Cam
bria City, under John Burns, reached here to
night and found his laborers doingactlve work.
They are short of food, but a sufficient supply
was secured to give them a breakfast This is
all the food tbe men have at present until
further supplies are brought in. There is a
crying need in Morrellville for men's shoes.
Among the buildings still standing in Morrell
ville is Mike Laffey's Hotel, whose generous
hospitality to the newspapermen and telegraph
operators will long be remembered.
Dr. Carrigue. of Massillon, reported that
there is very little sickness in Cambria City,
Morrellville and Minersville. Measles are
common, but of a mild typp. There is one
case of typhoid pneumonia, but the patient was
afflicted before the flood. Dr. Carrigues, after
a siege of hard work, left for home this after
noon. Before going; the Councils of Miners
ville thanked him for bis work and hoped tbe
people of Massillon would remember him, if
they could do nothing for him.
The daughter of Mrs.' Shomo, of Minersville,
is troubled with inflammation of the brain, re
sulting from tbe flood. This is the only serious
case of illness in tbe town.
Down at Morrellville the children were play
ing on the streets to-night. The lively spirit of
tbe little ones had a bracing effect on their de
pressed parents. It won't be long before the
people in this town and Cambria Cltv will be
able to take care of themselves. Israel.
POESN'T PEAE AN EPIDEMIC.
Surgeon General Hamilton Thinks Johns
town Is a,Heattur Place.
Washington. June 10. Surgeon General
Hamilton, of the Marine Hospital Service, who
went to the scene of the late disaster at Johns
town, Pa., in obedience to the orders of Presi
dent Harrison, rcturnod from his visit yester
day, and immediately reported the result of his
observations and inquiries. His report was to
day made public. It gives a description of the
city of Johnstown at the time the flood oc
curred, and deals with the efforts to relieve
the wants of the sufferers. The water supply
of Johnstown, he says, is puro and wholesome,
and there is little danger of an epidemic among
the inhabitants of Johnstown, Dr. Hamilton
"The danger point from a sanitary point of
view is the drift at the bridge, and this danger
is not to the inhabitants of Johnstown, but to
those people depending 06 the lower river for
their water supply. This water, if boiled be
fore drinking, will not be uuhealthy, but the
thought of drinking water contaminated by
dead bodies of human beings and animals is re
volting. The clearing of this drift, while at
tended with great difficulty, will be accom.
plished. The published statement that ani
mals are allowed to float down the river from
the drift is positively untrue."
In concluding his report Dr. Hamilton says
that tbe charitable people of this country
nneht not to cease the contributions of mnnev
J for some weeks to come, and finally, that there
is no danger wuatevcr 01 a general epidemic.

A Street Dicker In Allegheny Howard
The Street Railway Committee of Allegheny
Councils last night considered the proposition
of the Ohio Connecting Bailway Company to
secure the right of way over Preble and Mc
Clure avenues and the Lecky and Verner
roads in return for the building of a viaduct
on Spruce street with a return on Benton
street the grade crossing of tbe Verner road
at Porter street to be abandoned, to carry the
Lcckoy road over McClnre avenue and the val
ley at Wood's Bun to California avenue, to
build a drive-way about one mile long from
Bennett station to Jack's) Run. A viaduct
would be built to carry McClure avenue over
the tracks of the Ff. Wayne road and the
bridge would be the entire width of that street
at an elevation of 40 feet
The city Is asked to vacate Leckey road at the
crossing of the Ohio connecting road and tha
Ft. Wayne. This tbe sub-committee thought
hardly necessary and recommended the adop
tion of the proposition with that exception.
They suggest that the Leckey road be not va
cated, but the crossing at that point be aban
doned and tbe railroad company put up steps
from Leckey avenue to McClure avenue.
Tbe committee instructed the City Solicitor
to prepare an ordinance embodying the propo
sition. SQUEEZED IIEE BABI TO DEATH.
