INCIDENTS AT THE HEADQUAETERS
Commissary General Spangler, who come to
this city for the purpose of holding a confer
ence with the members of the Citizens' Belief
Committee.metwith the Executive Committee
of that body yesterday morning at 9 o'clock.
There were present at the conference Chair
man McCreery, and Messrs. Marvin, Miller, D.
Robinson, Fnct and Dilworth, of the commit
tee, and Colonels Spangler and Hill, for the
The conference did not last as long as might
have been expected, considering the many
little differences, thero were supposed to have
existed. The talk was confined almost entirely
to the question of rations for the sufferers.
Colonel Spangler stated clearly what the con
dition of affairs was at the ruined city, and
what must be done in the way of providing
food. He explained to the members of the
committee, the workings of his system of hav
ing A CEKSTJS TAKES'
of the people fed and how every pound of food
was accounted for. By his figures it was shown
that over 21,000 people were being provided
with three meals a day apiece. This is ex
clusive of the 7,000 laborers and the vast num
ber of militia men. These latter are taken care
of bv Colonel HilL the Quartermaster General.
He explained that he was perfecting his sys
tem of providing food as fast as possible. The
committee seemed perfectly satisfied with the
work of Colonel Spangler, and everything was
as harmonious as could be desired. They
agreed to supply Colonel Spangler with all the
provisions he wanted, notwithstanding the fact
that they are relieved of the control of the city,
and as one of the members remarked: "We
don't care who has charge of the affair. These
people must be fed, and we shall do it just as
long as necessarv."
Colonel Spangler's plan of having the food
sent him for three or lour days in advance was
acceded to, and he and Colonel Hill left for
Johnstown on the 1 o'clock train yesterday,
feeling considerably lighter at heart than when
they arrived Wednesday night.
TAKES ESTIBE CONTEOL.
By this arrangement Colonel Spangler as
sumes entire control of the commissary de
partment, and all clashing of authority will be
prevented. It is doubtf nl whether or not the
Citizens' Committee will even have a represent
ative on the grounds.
The work of the members of the committee.
is gradually becoming easier, as the excitement
dies away, and soon people will keep away from
the rooms altogether unless important business
takes them there. Contractor William Flinn
was at the rooms of the committee during the
afternoon, and was spoken to by a reporter of
The Dispatch as to the rnmored trouble
among the contractors as to securing the
State contract. He said that things were
now amicably arranged, and there was no f Di
ther trouble. The Chamber of Commerce paid
the salaries of his men for the work, and that
not one cent of it was handled by Booth &
Flinn in any connection. When the contract
was awarded by the State, Governor Beaver
sent a man named McDonald, from Baltimore,
to take charge of the work. McDonald, on his
arrival, suggested to Mr. Flinn that they enter
into a partnership arrangement, but Mr. Flinn
did not see it that way. McDonald then made
the same proposition to Contractor James Mc
Knight, but received the same answer.
COSTKACTOE M'DONAXD'S DILEMMA.
' AIcDocald then made the appeal that it the
Pittsburg men were to desert him at that stage
the work would hare to lie dormant, as he
could not get bis men on the ground in time to
be of any use. Mr. Flinn thereupon volun
teered to keep his men at Johnstown until
next Sunday, so that there would not be any
delay. Regarding the story that the men had
trouble with the State authorities in reference
to their rations, he said that it took nearly all
day to pay tho men oil. and after the hard work
they had done it was necessary for them to
eat; the officers, however, refused to give them
any food until Mr. Flmn had an understanding
with General Hastings, who had the matter
STOPPED ISBUIirG PASSES.
The Citizens' Committee have stopped giving
out passes to anyone, and those going to Johns
town hereafter will go on their own responsl
bilty. J. Morton Hall sent 100 laborers to Johnstown
last evening. He will send more to-day. Only
men who can pay their fare to Johnstown, how
ever, will be sent.
A few donations were received yesterday.
Among them were 30 cars of lumber from East
Saginaw, Mich., and S200 worth of tea from the
TJnion Pacific Tea Company.
A pathetic incident occurred at the new Ex
position building yesterday afternoon. Dona
tions of clothing and supplies are received
there, opened and arranged for distribution.
Mr. Will Cain, who has charge of the work,
opened a box of clothing and found underneath
the lid a small tin box, It contained 92 cents
and a small scrap of soiled brown paper, on
nhich was written:
"For some poor little lick sufferer of the

DICTATOR SCOTT AT HOKE.
Dictator James B. Scott, through whose
efforts order has been brought out of chaos at
Johnstown, arrived back in Pittsburg at an
early hour this morning. He returns to his
home and business after two weeks of the
hardest labor in the interest of the Johnstown
sufferers. He was met at the station by the
members of his family, who were more than
delighted to see him. He looked more like a
rugged mountaineer than a business man, but
seemed as though he was sorely in need of a
good rest. When approached by a Dispatch
reporter, he said: "There is positively nothing
that lean talk to yon about. I have been
pumped dry. There is nothing new, I pledge
Sou my word that there isn't. Now my family
i here and I want to get home. I can think of
nothing at all to say." Before getting in his
carriage, however. Mr. Scott said that the work
at Johnstown was progressing very smoothly.
ME. MrXI.EE "WILL ACCEPT.
Ruben Miller, speaking of the Governor's
appointment of himself, 8. 8. Marvin and
James B. Scott on the Distributing Commis
sion, said that he could not say whether he
would serve or not. He had not heard of the
appointment except through the papers.
He said that he was willing to accept the
Governor's bond for 5,000, and that there were
several other members of the committee who
were willing to do Likewise.
A LONG VOYAGE.
Captain lien- Clark and Foar Others Betnrn
From Johnstown in Skiffs What
They Saw on the Bonto.
At 6 o'clock yesterday morning two skiffs
belonging to the steamer Mayflower shot under
the Point bridge and were rowed np to the
steamer. The occupants of the smallest skiff
were the Messrs. Phillips, of tho Iron City
docks, and in the large skiff Captain Lew Clark
and Messrs. Austin and Frank Bjiley were
seated. These Intrepid voyagers had come a
long distance. The Conemaugh river from
Johnstown to the Kiskiminetas and from the
mouth of the Kiskiminetas to Pittsburg was
traversed b7 Captain Clark's party, over 100
mucs oemg maae witn omy one stop, at xu&ub
ville. There were to have been enough men in the
party to bring down the five skiffs, but only
enough materialized to man two. Johnstown
was left early Tuesday morning and the dan
gerous and exciting work of navigating the
Conemaugh in a drizzling rain began. So rapid
were the breakers that a number of hairbreadth
escapes were made and the party was drenched
to the skin when Blairsvllfe and civilization
WHAT THE YOTAGEKS SAW.
Mr. Frank Bailey, one of the party, gavo a
graphic account of the trip to a Dispatch
representative. "We found the bulk of the
debris was lodged along tho river banks from
Johnstown to Bolivar w here the sights are cer
tainly terrible, but with all our looking we
found no bodies. In several places we noticed
Grand pianos and organs and secured some
ivories off the kejs as relics. Railroad cars of
all roads were scattered along the river banks
and even far out in the fields. We noticed
an iron rail standing bolt upright in the
midst of a pile of debris. One thing we noticed
was the careful and thrifty natives along both
rivers, bard at work extracting lumber and
timbers from the debris. Trees were covered
with fragments of clothing and fine lace under
wear, and the smell from the debns was very
oppressive at a great many points. Our party
concurin the belief that the banks of the Con
emaugh and Kiskiminetas should be thoroughly
cleaned up and the debris fired for the sake of
"I doubt if we would have got through safely
had not the rain caused the Conemaugh river
to rise three feet in the 12 hours we were upon
"There are thousands of dollars worth of lum
ber, barrels, furniture and every variety of
articles along the route wc came, and a salvage
corps conld make a stake In the work of clean
ing up. It is likely that many valuables have
been found and secreted, as even at this time
the avidity of searchers shows that finds have
been made. About 15 miles below Johnstown
we saw tho heavy fisbbar rails of the street
railroad amour the debris. As we passed
Saline, on the Kiskiminetas, we saw a 200-foot
section of a railroad bridge, apparently intact,
at the lettsideot the river. It probably was
the Blairsville bridge, on which young Stitt
lost his life. We passed Tunnelton, on the
West Penn, late Wednesday evening, and saw
the first train cross the bridge-trestle SO feet
high which has been bunt, iieretoiore trans
fers were made at that point.
THBOW2T INTO THE WATER.
"We came near meeting with a serious acci
dent at the bridge. The channel of the Kiski
minetas is very narrow and the water boils un
der the trestle at a great rate. The small
skiff went through safely, but our boat was
capsized in a jiffy and we all were in great dan
ger of drowning, but managed to cling to the
boat until we got ashore 100 yards below. We
landed, built a fire and dried ourselves ia the
accident losing us three hours of time."
"We ran all nizht on the Allechenv river in
order to reach home in time, and when wo got
off the boats wero pretty well used up by the
trip An amusing illustration of the avidity
with which people read The Dispatch was
afforded all along the route. At a great many
points people shouted questions as to the
whereabouts of the other boats, and we were
puzzled to understand what they meant. At
New Florence a rustic bawled across the river
at us wanting to know where Captain Lew
Clark was. and wo were astonished to find our
selves known and expected. When we reached
Blairsville we saw that The Dispatch was
the only paper giving an account of our pro
posed journey. But it was wonderful to find
that people way back in the mountains were so
well posted in what was going on."
AT THE TOI0N DEPOT.
Return of the City Firemen A Relative of
Charlotte Cnsbman Among tho
Survivors Laborers De
Sixteen of the city firemen returned home
last night from Johnstown, after a week of the
hardest kind of work. They have been en
gaged in putting out the fires at tho bridge and
cleaning away the debris. They looked wom
out, and seemed to be perfectly satisfied to get
in addition to these, five of the Allegheny
men arrived. They were headed by Noble
Jones, who a fow days ago found $900 in the
debris, which was turned over to the committee.
Among the passengers on the train from
Johnstown there was one who has an interest
ing history. Her name is Florence Cushman.
a bright, handsome girl of probably 14 years of
ago. She is a blood relative of that famous
actress, Charlotte Cushman. Miss Cushman
lived with her mother and stepfather at Johns
town, and are victims of the disaster. Her
stepfather's name is Iran Rutledge. He and
tho girl's mother are going to West Virginia.
The girl goes to friends at Canton, 0.
The same tram brought in over 100 laborers,
who have left Johnstown in anything but a
happy frame of mind. Since the change of au
thority has been made the men have been dis
satisfied, and when they learned that their
wages were to be reduced, they revolted open
ly, and, as one of the laborers said last night,
The men won't stand it. They are drawing
what money is coming to them, and are getting
out of town as fast as they can. If this thing
keeps up there won't be any men left to do the

drove out of Johnstown because they were too

District Attorney, Frozine, of Warren county,
was at the Union depot last night He is a
member of General Wylle's staff, and holds the
rank of Quartermaster Sergeant. Jn speaking
to a reporter last evening he said that be was
of the opinion that the military would be kept
at Johnstown for two months to come. He
said that everything was going along smoothly
under the new management, and that during
the day General Hastings and James B. Scott
held a long' conference, and Scott turned over
everything relating to the city's management to
the Adjutant General.
Maggie Sullivan, another of the Johnstown
sufferers, got in last night, and from her it was
learned that a family named Murphy, who
kept the Brunswick Hotel, had been lost, with
the exception of one son. The latter, whose
name is Michael, was caught in the flood and
floated down the river to Blairsville, where he
was picked up in an exhausted condition.
Those of the family who were lost are tho
father, mother and five children.
The Excelsior Express and Cab Company
have since the flood tendered the uso of their
vehicles to the various committees, and are
running them night and day without charge.

A Meeting of the County Lodges Is Held
for the Sufferer's Benefit.
Prior to call of the Grand Lodge, K.ofP.,
for contributions from the various lodges to
aid the Johnstown sufferers belonging to the
order. Fort Duquesne Dodge, No. 260, at tho
request of several P. C.'s of this city, issued a
call to all the lodges in the county to meet by
representatives for the purpose of devising
ways and means to accomplish that end. The
meeting was held in Pythian hall last evening,
when 20 lodges were represented by 48 repre
sentatives. P. C, J. M. CookLof 260, was chosen chair
man, and P. C, J. Kelland, of 345, secretary.
Reports of representatives of the various
lodges brought out the fact that many had for
warded their donations to the G. K. of R. and S.,
George Hawkes for distribution among the
sufferers in the order. The total amount of
contributions to date, from 16 lodges present,
footed np $932. Four lodges present were wait
ing the action of this meeting before making
their donations. While there are 16
lodges yet to be heard from, as so many
lodges had already forwarded their donations,
it was resolved that each lotge should forward
its own donations to the G. K. of R. and S. in
stead of combining and forwarding in one sum.
The Secretary was instructed to correspond
with the K. of P. Committee at Johnstown to
ascertain the exact situation, and what is
actually needed; having ascertained this the
lodges will be notified and the wants of the

DIED m THE ELAMES.
Lives and Property Are Destroyed at
A STILLMAK BURNED TO A CRISP,
Wlille a Foreman and a Boy Are Probably
THE BAD WORK OF A BENZINE STILL
An oil fire which involved the destruction of
at least two lives and possibly a third, and also
some property, occurred yesterday afternoon
at Coleman station, on the Allegheny Valley
Railroad, and just within the city limits.
The refinery at which the catastrophe oc
curred is owned by the Bear Creek Refining
Company, of this city, in its way an extensive
plant. It borders close to the Allegheny Val
ley Railroad, the Allegheny river and the base
of the abrupt hill. About 220 o'clock in the
afternoon one of the benzine stills which is lo
cated in a ravine a short distance from the
railroad, was being filled. This was ac
complished safely, to all appearances; but it
was only a few minutes until there was an over
flow, aloud explosion, the quick ignition of
the volatile fluid followed, and the destruction
of life and property had commenced.
Gns Jack, who was employed at the refinery
in the capacity of a stillman. was caught at the
instant, and in a very few minutes his life was
gone. He was standing on the hillside just bo
low the still when the
BUSH OP BTJENIXG-BENZrNB
caught him. There he lay for fully half an hour
in the blazing fluid, in full sight of all the work
men who had come to endeavor to quench the
flames. They were powerless to aid him until
the fierceness of the flames had been spent.
Then one or-two men rushed through the
place and pulled out poor Jack, bnt he was
burned to a crisp.
The remains were taken to tho office of the
company and were placed in a coffin later in
the evening and were then taken to his home,
near the works. Jack bad worked for the com
pany about eight years. He leaves a wife and
John Kirkpatrick, of Verona, the foreman of
the works, was also caught in the Are. He was
fatally burned and was removed to his home,
where Dr. Hamilton, of Oakmont, attended
him. The doctor said that be thought Kirk
patrick would hardlv live through the night.
Kirkpatrick had also worked at the refinery
ever since it was started and was also a married
man, having a wife and family.
A POSSIBLE THIRD VICTIM.
Charles Dnn, a boy who lived at Coleman
and who worked at the refinery, will probably
bo a third victim of the fire. He was seriously
burned about the head, so much so that he was
at once brought to the West Penn Hospital.
At midnight a telephone message from the hos
pital stated that Dun was in a precarious con
dition, and that his Injuries might prove fatal.
Just after the fire broke out an alarm was
telephoned in, and Engine Company No. 7 re
sponded on an Allegheny Valley train,reaching
the fire abont 4 o'clock. It at'onco did good
work, and at 7 o'clock had succeeded in extin
guishing tho flames, having confined them to
the one still and a small outbuilding.
The loss to the company could not be ascer
tained last nipht, but it will reach several thou
sand dollars. Allegheny Valley trains were
not delayed by the fire.
Coroner McDowell was apprised of the acci
dent abont o o'clock, and immediately went to
the scene, where a lury was impanelcl and
viewed the remains of the deceased, after
which the inquest was adjourned until to
MR. A. W. MELLOX'S APPEAL.
How Yaluntlons Decrease ns Von Go East
From tho Union Station Into the Region
of Ferpciual Noise.
Notwithstanding the fact that the triennial
assessment of city property by the City Board
of Assessors shows an increase from "$115,000,000
to $190,000,000, an increase of nearly 60 per cent,
appeals to court have been remarkably few.
One case of considerable interest was heard
by Judges Collier and Slagle in Common Pleas
No. 1 yesterday. It was that of A. W. Melloi
who kicked on the assessment on what "'is

An appeal was iirsi maae to me ooara against
the assessment on the per front foot on the
land, but also on the value pnt on the build
ings. They were old and somewhat dilapi
dated, and the board granted the appeal as to
them, but refused to alter the valuation put on
It appears from the records in the Assessors'
office and the testimony in court that valua
tions on property in that neighborhood varied
from Eleventh street eastward, accordine to
distance beyond the Union station. The assess
ment from Eleventh street (Rush House) tc a
point opposite th Excelsior stables was J550
per foot front; from that point to Stevenson
alley the valuation was 1500 afoot front; from
Stevenson alley to Twelfth street the assess
ment was $300 a foot front, all of these lots be
ing 100 feet in depth to Spring alley, showing a
somewhat remarkable decrease in valuo in
As previously stated, the property in dispute
lies at the corner of Twelfth and Liberty
streets, and consequently in the class between
Twelfth street and Stevenson alley. Mr. Mcl
lon's claim for reduction was based on the price
paid by him for 96 feet frontage, which price
was below the valuation of the board, although
purchased only IS months ago. It was shown
that within the three squares from Eleventh
street all appeals made to the board had been
granted save that of Mi. Mellon, and that in
none of these appeals so granted boyond Ste
venson alley the appellants had asked for a re
duction below 300 a foot front.
Alfred O'Donnell was called to testify before
the court and he stated that in his opinion the
property was worth $400 a foot front. A. W.
Hoereler, who owns property two squares
above, testified that ho considered the Morri
son property worth $350 per foot front Thomas
Dugan, who owns property between Twelfth
and Thirteenth streets, deposed that the prop
erty in question was worth at least $100 a foot
more than his, and Us is assessed at $300 per
foot front. Several witnesses testified that
sales wero made two squares east for more
than the value put on the Morrison property
by the Assessors. Thomas D. Carnahan, Esq ,
tor the board, called Mr. Mellon, and he de
clined to say that the property was not worth
$300 per foot front.
The Court reserved its decision.
The original valuation put on the property
was $52,100, on which the Board itself granted
relief in appeal reducing it to $12,000, and'lhe
value of the ground frontage was reduced
from $403 33 to $307 50. The appellant's value
on the naked ground was $19,680.

WOMEN AND LIQUOR AT TAB POLLS
The interested parties to the amendment bat
tle hare begun to gird np their loins for next
Tuesday's conflict, and it must be said that
both sides are going into the last stage of the
battle with snblime confidence in the result.
The liquor dealers are asserting that they've
got the votes and the temperance people are
asseverating that they'll get the votes, and you
pays your money and takes your choice.
"Ob, yes! we are all through the literature'
branch of the campaign. We have 30 counties
fully organized, and our county chairmen are
not experimental politicians. Legislators and
Congressmen are faking charge of our cam
paign, and we are receiving help from unex
pected sources. You can say that we expect to
snow the other fellows under by a good round
majority." This is what a memberof trie Cam
paign Liquor Dealers' Committee said yester
LIQTJOB AT THE POLLS.
A visit was then paid to temperance head
quarters in the Bissell block. The County
Committee held a meeting yesterday, in which
the question of the use of liquor upon special
election day came np and received much atten
tion. Chairman Jos. D. Weeks stated that the
committee had resolved to notify all the Con
stables in all the wards of the city and all por
tions of the county that strict attention must
be paid to the clause in the Brooks law which
says that it is a misdemeanor for any person,
with or without license, to sell or give away
liquor upon election day.
'It is the sworn duty of these men." said Mr.
Weeks, "and we will take stens to comnel them
to do it. We will have a meeting at noon to
day in the Grand Opera House, of all our pre
cinct officers in the county, and the fullest in
structions will be given them. We shall hare
men at ererr polline place on watch for traces
of liquor. As regards the fight in general, we
shall win easily. Chairman Palmer telegraphs
to day that things are looking very much
The County Committee claims to have got
ten hold of a letter sent ont by Z. Wainwright
t Co., brewers, in which the statement is
made that "there are grounds for fear that the
amendment will carry.'
PBEPABATIONS OF THE 'WOMEN.
A general meeting of the W. C. T. Unions of
Allegheny was held yesterday at 1 o'clock p. jr.
in the Fourth TJ. P. Church, Allegheny, under
the presidency of Mrs. H. C Campbell. A
committee reported that the bells of the fol
lowing churches would be rung for five min
utes of every hour on Tuesday the 18th, be
ginning at 7 o'clock A. at: The Second Pres
byterian, Dr. Leaks', Dr. Kennedy's, and the
Mrs. Porter introduced a motion, which was
adopted, that ministers and Christian men of
all denominations be invited to take part in the
all day exercises which will be held in the
Ninth Presbyterian Church on Tuesday.
The same lady read a letter from Mr.Palmer,
of Wilkesbarre, giving his opinion that women
are not liable to any penalty under the law in
being near a polling precinct, and that they
mii?bt safely go there f or the purpose of influ
encing votes, adding that the only lawful inter
ference which could be made with them was by
a warrant being sworn out against them and
placed in tho hands of an officer for execution.
Considerable discussion followed on the propri
ety of ladles going to the polls, and a motion,
put from the Chair by the lady presiding, as to
the expediency of doing so, fell through. One
or two ladles volunteered to do what they
could at polling booths in their respective
unions, after which Mrs. Porter made an ap
peal to the meeting to help headquarters as far
as lay In their power. On a suggestion that a
resolution be introduced to the effect
that the ladles present should appear
at certain polls, the presiding lady declared
tnat tnero was no nw, human or divine, wnicn
would compel a woman to do what she didn't
want to," which caused a ripple of laughter to
break over the assembly, and the sentiment
was one wnicn was evidently acquiesced in.
Then tho motion "that the ladles who desire to
go to the polls may go" was put and carried.
BEFBESHMENTS AT THE POLLS.
Considerable discussion followed as to tho
advisability ot furnishing refreshments at or
near tho several polling booths, hut there
seemed to;bc some disinclination on tho part of
the members to attempt this very generally. A
refreshment tent will, however, be erected in
the yard of the Sixth ward, Allegheny, school,
and a booth in the Immediate vicinity of the
Second ward school As a last rccource, seem
ingly, to have temporance refreshments In
abundance and within easy reach of the faith
ful on Tuesday, a committee was appointed to
visit the 64 polling places and report on the
possibility of establishing refreshment stations
in houses in the vicinity.
It is proposed to give a free musical enter
tainment at the rink on Monday evening, sus
tained by well-known local musicians, at which
Judge Whlto and Mr. Ed Murphy will have a
few remarks to make on the situation. '
The meeting then adjourned to Saturday
next at 3 p. m. at the same place.

you request In your communication.

Pally Six Thousand Sought the Shrine of St.
Anthony Yesterday No Miracles
Performed Some Lively
Yesterday was the climax of the scenes at
Father Mollinger's church on Troy HiU, which
had commenced the day before, as was noted
in The Dispatch. It was St. Anthony's Day,
which is observed in but two nations, and but
one city in each nation. These cities are Lis
bon, in Portugal, and Allegheny City.
Thousands from Pittsburg, Allegheny and, in
fact, almost every city in the United States
gathered, and have been gathering, for the past
few days to worship at the shrine erected to
his memory in the church of the Most Holy
Name, on Troy Hill, Allegheny. Hundreds of
these thousands' are invalids. Tbe lame, tbe
halt, the blind, the puny and sickly child, the
deformed youth, and the diseased and afflicted
old people made np the throng. They hobbled
into the church on crutches and were carried
in on cots, all with one purpose. That purpose
was to beg God, Father Molllnger and the
spirit of the departed St. Anthony to heal
and make them whole.
TTie Worthy Priest and Sealer.
The first mass was held at 6 o'clock, and the
church was crowded with the sick. They were
there to have Bev. Father Molllnger pray for
and bless them. At 7 o'clock they wentorwere
taken there again. Tbe third mass was said at
7.30. Before this mass was over dozens of Pitts
burg's and Allegheny's afflicted were arriving
that they might be in time for the high mass at
At the 10 o'clock service the church was
crowded to its utmost capacity, and hundreds
of others took possession of the famous priest's
lawn, while others crowded around m the
churchyard, all endeavoring to get near the
METHODS OP TREATMENT.
The reverend father treats cases In different
ways. In some cases be uses medicine. On
others ho does not, and in still other cases he
uses medicine and rubs the diseased parts. All
this time he implores the Divine Being to aid
him in his work. He treats no one who has
not falth.but nevertheless he claims to perform
Among the many cures said to have been
made is that of Miss Parks, of Philadelphia, of
epilepsy. A New York lady is reportetf as hav
ing regained her eyesight, and a little girl who
was compelled to use crutches to enter the
chnrch was able to walk out without their aid.
Mr. W. Howe, who is a close friend of Father
Molllnger. although not a Catholic, and several
priests said there were no sneb cures made to
their knowledge. If there had been any they
say they would have known of them.
Several persons reported the case of Mrs.
Elizabeth Johnston, of this city, as having re
gained her voice, after having been dumb for
A Mr. O'Donnell, of Fairmount, O., attended
the services last year and also yesterday for the
pnrposo of being cured of a disease, and re
ports being considerably better.
The case of Mrs. Katie Stringer, of Dan
ville, Pa., as reported in yesterday's Dispatch
is true in every particular.
At i o'cioce services were nem in tne cnapei.
which was jammed with people wanting to see
the Interior of the beautiful building.'
STJEEOHNDINO THE EELICS.
All yesterday afternoon tbe church was
opened to the people, and around the altar
were numerous relics, the bones of St. An
thony. They were viewed by thousands.
At all the services Bev. Molllnger was as
sisted by the following priests: Most Reverend
Father Ambrose Emenet, General of tbe con
gregation of the Holy Ghost, Paris, who Is now
making his provincial visit here. He was as
sisted By Father Huvetys, Vice Provincial of
Ireland: Fathers Schwab, Williams, Quinns,
Laregest, Hyacinth, Leander, O. 3. B.; Father
Healy. or Dublin, and Father Williams, Presi
dent of Holy Ghost College.
Last night an entertainment was held in the
school hall. It was largely attended. About
6,000 people attended the different services.
Fully 500 of the above number were invalids.
The little girls and boys of tbe neighborhood
did a thriving business selling holy water and
refreshments. In fact, almost every boy had
something to sell, even to pretzels.
