THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, TUESDAY, JUNE 18, 1889,
STOPPED BY. STOEMS.
'Dr. Kiddle's Experience of the Great
A EIDE BY BAIL THROUGH WATER,
With Side Kotes of the Many EemarkaWe
I10WABAILE0AD MET AN EMERGENCY
There are few in church circles better known
than Dr. Matthew B. Riddle, of the Allecheny
Seminary. As has already been stated in The
BisrATCH, the Doctor was one of those who
had personal experience of the Johnstown
storm. Ee has already told some of the Pitts
burg papers part of what he saw, but a letter
from him to the Hartford Couranl is so graphic
that we quote it below:
Allegheny, June 8.
on rrlday morning at S o'clock I left Ktw York,
lioplng to reach home about the same hour that
enniug, by the Chicago limited on the Tennsyl
laula ltallroad. On the Wednesday following
(J une 5) about 3 r. M. IJarrlved at my house weary
and saddened, but Drofoundly fcrateful that I got
home and thai I had a home to get to. Though 1
was in little danger at any time, yet the 6tory of
that journey may not be without Interest to some
of my friends.
It rained hard all Friday morning, hut at llar
rlsburgthe black clouds hanging over the liluc
Kldgevereanpalllng in their blackness. Enter
ing the valley oi "the blue Juniata" we found
A TAWXY KIVEB OF EAGINO WATEKS
but as yet harmless. As the afternoon wore
away and the valley narrowed, the signs or de
struction began. Bridges were crossed that
looked dangerous; houses were seen to which
people were passing waist deep In water. At Ty
rone the whole town seemed to be threatened.
Still wc went on, occasionally oyer tracks under
water, reaching Altoona ten minutes late. Here
we learned there was a washout ou the mountain,
which would delay us, how long nc one could tell.
Immediately 1 telegraphed home that I need not
be expected that night. The message was deliv
ered in good season, but In a short time came the
fearful catastropne at seiith Fork, and we were
cut off from the rest of the world. One tralu came
In from the east, and then bridges went down be
hind us, while befere us was this gorge of death,
though we did not know It. M e had been halted
on account of a lesser break at Lily station: the
dam had not yet burst, in lact our train was due
there about the time it gave wav.
Without any sneclal anxiety, I settled comforta
bly for the night in the car bcotland. which was
m home for four days. In the morning after
breakfast news came of the great disaster. Mr.
fcmith, manager of the Associated l'ress, who had
been on the Ill-fated dav express, was the first
ej e-witness that appeared In Altoona. A little
later came other passengers, among them one of
my colleagues. Prof Kobinson. and a young lad v
from onr street In Allegheny. The story they told
evervone has heard In some form. Exaggeration
seems Impossible. Uy this time the limited from
the west came In. it had been taken past the
bridge and the danger, contrary to original or
ders. Hits precaution, as 1 learn, was due to the
ureesuon oi a i-msDurg gentleman wno naa
been at the late overhauling his new cottage. lie
had fears that the dam would go.
SIXTEADfS WEBE THUS HELD
at Altoona, three each way, and the hundreds of
passengers were taken care of by the Pennsylva
nia Railroad. Those who preferred slept In the
Pullman cars, others were lodged at the Logan
House, where all were boarded at the expense of
the company. Corporations may have no souls,
but -rhen I remember that this great company,
confron'ed by the greatest disaster ever kuo n In
the history of railways, was studiously careful of
the personal comfort of cverv passenger holding
a ticket near the destroyed district, 1 feel as if it
certainly had souls In It, and noblo ones, too.
inc gooa traits oi "mo average American. " fin

aoon began to sbow themselves. Keller lor Johns
town was at once proposea. Five hundred dol
lars were raised In a very short time at the hotel,
and double that sum in Altoona Provisions w ere
sent off via Ebensburg, tbence bv wagons. Hut
we had to stay. lieyoad Johnstown there was
no travel, lo the east there was destruc
tion, but not even the railroad officials knew how
much. All telegraph wires were down In every
direction. Yet that delayed crowd was patient,
friendly, uncomplaining. One foreigner, an
Englishman, said to be a man of rank,
GBOWXED AFTEK THE LEONINE FASHION
of his race, but we had no complaints. TVe were
safe, boused aad fed, while thousands were dead,
thousands more homeless and starving, bo the
days wore on. On Sunday every available man
was set to work on the road. On Monday the gen
eral superintendent reached Altoona from the
east by skiff and wagon and hand car malnlr
That night It was announced that an attempt
Mould be made on Tuesday morning to forward
west bound passengers to Pittsburg, 31 miles of
the dUtance by stage or wagon.
ext morning at 8 130 of us started by rail for
Ebensburg on a branch road alone the crest of the
Alleehenles. We were warned that women and
children would have the preference in case the:c
was uot transportation for all bo we sped around
the Horse Shoe lknd. by Allegrlppus. through the
long tunnel that pierces the back bone or the
mountain, and then along the western edge of the
summit to'lbensburg. But the convevances were
not sufficient. e were offered free ride back to
Altoona, and 1 had about decided to accept, when
one of my pupils drove np with a span of stout
horses and a spring wagon. This he said six of us
could charter to take us to a nearer point than
Blalrsville, whither the company's line of wagons
was dispatched. It happened that a party of six,
aU known to me. could be formed, and off we
started, to go as we pleased.
Just before starting an acquaintance came up
footsore and heart sore. Ills sister had been lost
In tbe day express, and he was searching for her
ody. He had walked 18 miles from Johnstown,
and was looking for the conductor or tbe Pullman
car in which she had traveled. The conductor I
knew and where he was; this much I could do for
the poor fellow. r
Our route now lay along the old northern
"pike, " over which states ran before the railroad
days. A rough road, but not deep with mud.
Four miles an hour was the rate of speed, but
some spots on that road 1 can never forget. About
fifteen miles out we Crossed the crest ofthe Laurel
Kida-e, the first range west or the Allegbenles.
Here a view was given us, so wide, so varied so
CHASGED WITH MELANCHOLY INTEREST,
that it remains the most vivid plctnre of that en
tire Journey. Behind me was the backbone, rorm
lng the horizon from north to couth. Over it was
banked Just then a dense storm cloud, black as
night, suggesting all the fearful possibilities of
such a phenomenon Off to the southwest, almost
fifteen miles away, was a rift in the dark cnrtaln.
But under that rift lay Johnstown and the, gorge
ofthe Conemaugh, down which the waters had
rushed, dealing death and destruction. Before us
was the romantic chestnut ridi wM! .
the north and northwest lay a broad landscape of
water sheds of the little hills, for near ns the
water flowed into the Allegheny, and Just beyond
the rivulets collected to form the north branch of
the Susquehanna, which breaks through the
mountain range of Lock Haven. In better circum
stances I want to look at that scenerjtagaln. Ihe
old stage coach travelers saw more lovely views
than we of this generation. Tbe road wound over
tbe hills, ror a reason that we all felt, to escape
the floods and mud. About 6 o'clock we entered.
In a heavy rain, the hamlet of Armagh. Here was
a country tavern, a relic ofthe stage-coach days.
The landlosd assured us he could accommodate us
over night, that It was only two miles to the Cone
maugh river, and a railway station on the oppo
site bank, from which trains were running.
Gladly enough westopped. The company's trav
elers pushed on. 13 miles further, and we rested.
is ext morning our driver took us over two lull as,
measured by length, but half a dozen, measured
by depth and other eccentricities. At the river
we began to encounter tbe desolation. The ferrv
man's house liv un Its side, his household effects
scattered arouud it. and his little farm utterly de
stroyed. On the other side we walked half a mile
through the lowlands over which the water bad
rushed, and at Nineveh found a railway station,
an outpost or the army or undertakers and labor
ers. Here were piles of coffins waiting to be used.
Two hundred were burled already in an acre pur

County Committee. A plain board told all that

there had been, possibly a little thieving, but the
arconnts of lynching, etc., are fabrications. At
last the train came, and at 3 o'clock I was home,
live days and six hours from New York.
Few fared so well J. and yet. owing to the fact
that I was to preach ln Pittsburg on Sunday, and
the failure of my telegram to reach the propcrner
son. a large congregation was nut ln some alarm
about me. This is my story. The Impression or It
1s deepened by the presence next door of a num
ber ot the sufferer. The ladles ot our neljrhbor
liood have fitted up the main dormitory of our
seminary as a htspltal and home. These cities
have "done nobly, borne of our heaviest losers by

Pinna for Erecting Residences nnd Stores

rFltOSI A STAFF COnBESPOXDEXT.J
JOHSSTOra, June 17. A meeting of the
Town Council of Johnstown will be held to
morrow afternoon for the purpose of consider
ins the matter of the military authorities erect
ing temporary houses and places of business
for the merchants of the place who desire to
resume business. Adjutant-General Hastings
wishes to erect the buildings in the public
squares of the town, and it will be necessary to
obtain the consent of the Council to do so.
After the meeting a conference of the Building
Committee will be held, and it will then be
decided what kind of buildincs to put up.
A meeting of the Building Committee was
held this afternoon for the purpose of consid
ering the situation, and if possible, devising
iran and means of erectlnc temDorarv bouses.
There were two propositions suggested one to
erect a number of buildings on the publio
square belonging to the borough, and allow the
merchants to occupy tnem for 13 months. At
the end of that time, if the occupants bad not
rebuilt their stores, the temporary buildings
were to be torn down.
THE OTHEE PEOPOSITION
was to furnish the business interests of the
town enough one-storied buildings to carry on
their business. The structures were tobefflby
CO feet, to be strictly used for mercantile pur
It was stated at the meeting that about SO
buildings would be required, and tbey could
be erected at a cost of about $75 each. In order
to have them put up at once and ready for oc
cupancy in less than two weeks it would be
necessary to erect them on vacant ground. The
main nublic sauare is 2H feet sauare and sur
rounded by four principal streets. There ara
also four smaller spaces owned by the town,
each 66 feet square.
General Hastings will meet the Town Coun
cil to-morrow and state to them what the Com
monwealth desires. The only thing wanted
from the borough will be the use of the publio
squares. The buildings will be erected with
out expense to those for whom they are in
tended. WHO WILL BEAT. THE EXPENSE7
The General has not yet received any assu
rance that the State will pay for their erection,
but if it cannot be arranged the money will be
taken from one of the funds. There is enough
lumber on the ground to start the work, and
advices are being received daily that carloads
are on the way. It it becomes necessary to
purchase lumber the money will be found to do
it witbont trouble to the citizens ot the place.
General Hastings received a telegram to-day
from Chicago, stating the 100 ready-made
houses were being shipped as rapidly as possi
ble, and the first Installment of them would be
received Saturday. These houses will be for
the use of the people who lost their homes in
the flood, and who are now stopping with
friends. Some of the people have not slept
under a roof since the night before the dam
burst A master carpenter will arrive here in
the morning, and will immediately proceed
with the work of erecting buildings.

JOHJ.STOWN, June 17. Tho Department of
Public Safety, under the management of Gen
eral Wiley, is still doine effective work in the
matter of protecting the property of citizens.
This morning two more crooks were run out of
town by the officers of the department. Both
w ere caught in the act of committing depreda
tions. One of the men, who is a well-known char
acter about Allegheny City, was caught in
Kernville, at an early hour this morning, going
through the lower part of a house in which
people are living. The marauder bad forced
open several trunks and chests, but beyond get
ting a bottle of whisky and a few trinkets, he
secured nothing-. One of tbe men in the
'house, named Frederick Stewart, caught him
just as ne was stepping inrougna note in me
side of the house, and turned him over to a
squad of soldiers. be man attempted to pull
a knife nn his captor, but was soon disarmed.
The other man was found lurking ln the
vicinity of the wrecked stores on Main street,
and picking up whatever he conld find. Both
were marched to the end of the town and
given ten minutes to "skip." Like all the
other notorious characters who have been
driven from the city, tbey were headed toward

Middletown, N. Y., June 17. The ter
rible electric storm which visited the Che
nango Valley region to-day was accompan
ied at Norwich by a tornado which devas
tated the large and handsome cemetery just
beyond the outskirts of the village, where

loud roar of furious winds and a redoubled
downpour of hail and rain.
Nearly every headstone and monnment
in the path ot "the tornado was broken or
defaced so as to be practically ruined.

for nearly two years from rheumatic
