GovernorBeaver and Lis Johnstown Be

ruins of the flood-swept town. They were

'She Commission decided, after conferring
with the local Finance Committee, to assist
in rebuilding the town, thus helping the
fcttrvivors to help themselves.
IFBOH A STATF COIinESrOM)EXT.3
Johxstowx, June 19. The much-talked-of
Belief Commission, which was
created by Governor Beaver for the purpose
or handling the funds for the alleviation of
the distress ot the flood suflerers arrived
t here this morning at 9 o'clock in a Epecial
1 train, composed of an engine and two Pull-
' man vestibule cars. They came, saw ana
talked. That is, the Governor talked, but
Lis speech was short and more guarded than
. the whisky in some of the officers' tents.
The train came from South Fork, and by
order of Governor Beaver it was run down
to the Ions stone bridge, where the mass of
debris lies burning in the river. The Gov
ernor got ont of his car and was very much
interested in the work of pushing the heavy
logs and timbers out into the channel of the
GOVEENOE BEAYEK MUCH AJICSED.
"While the Governor was watching the
men working a dynamite blast was set off
for his benefit "When the time came to re
turn to the car he did not want to leave the
spot, and upon ascending the steps stated
that he would like to remain there all day
and watch the work.
The train was then ran back to the sta
tion, and under the direction of Adjutant
General Hastings horses were provided for
the narty and a tour of the devastated re
gion was made. The gentlemen then went
through the principal streets of Johnstown
borough.and, crossing the river, passed into
Kernville. Here they found the greatest
destruction. They made their way with
the horses over large piles of debris, and ex
plored every nook in the town. Such ex
pressions as "My goodness! How could
water do such damage?" and "Just look at
this obstruction!" could be frequently
heard from the Governor.
The Philadelphians, Messrs. Filler, Og
den, Beeves and Huber were not amazed.
' They were
SIMPLY SPEECHLESS AT TIMES,
when they saw the damage that had been
done. When they came to a spot where
two large two-story frame houses leaned
over against one another until the tops of
the gables almost touched, the sightseers
did not leave the spot for fully five minutes.
After going through the whole town the
commission returned to Johnstown, where
, it met the Pittsburg delegation, Messrs
Marvin, Miller and Scott. The latter gen
tlemen came up in company with Superin
tendent Pitcairn, who tendered them the
use of a special train.
The commission had been sent for by the
citizens of the town, who were holding a
meeting, and who wanted to confer with
them. One of the Pittsburg commissioners
objected to running around after the citi
zens, and wanted to know why the latter
could not come to them. The Johnstown
people did not look for this, and the mem
bers ot the commission went to dinner in
SOMETHING OF A MISUX DERSTAIf DING.
A message had been sent to the citizens of
the town that the Commissioners would ar
rive at 10 o'clock, and a meeting was hastily
called to be held in Alma Hall at that hour.
It was stated that the Governor and his
party would visit the meeting and confer
with the citizens the first thing upon their
arrival. This had the effect of drawing ont
a large number of the best citizens of the
town who were desirous of seeing the borough
The meeting was called to order by Cyrus
Elder, and James McMillan acted as Secre
tary. Alter organizing a recess was taken
. until the Governor and party should ap
pear. This event did not occur though,
and after waiting two hours a messenger
was sent alter the Commission. The latter
sent word that they would be on hand with
in an hour, and alter waiting awhile longer
the meeting adjourned in disgust.
At 1 o'clock the Finance Committee was
instructed to meet the commission on board
their train and talk ever the sitnation.

about getting into the elegant vestibnled
Pullman cars, in which the Commissioners
traveled, but they managed to conceal
their astonishment, and climbed on board.
"After the Governor and party had finished
dinner, the conference was called to order
by the Governor. The Finance Committee
ot the town then stated what the needs of
the people were, and offered suggestions as
to the disposition of the money on hand.
They stated that the best thing to be done
now, in viefr or the fact that a great por
tion bt the debris had been cleared away,
was to bring portable houses to the town,
2nd have them put up for immediate oc
cupancy. The 'commission, after discussing this
matter, unanimously agreed to authorize-
the purchase of 500 houses and hare them
put together immediately upon their ar
rival. In addition to purchasing and put
ting the houses together, they will furnish
them with the lurriitnre essential to begin
housekeeping again. This was satisfactory
to the members of the committee, and after
fully explaining the situation and what had
already been done, the local committee re
tired. FDTPEE WORK OUTLINED.
Afier the committee had gone the mem
bers of the commission discussed the mat
ter as explained by Adjutant General Hast
ings. They outlined their future work, and
authorized General Hastings to build little
Etores for the merchants of the town, so as
to enable them to begin business once more.
A resolution was passed authorizing the use
ol all moneys contributed and all the cash in
jBlght to be spent through the Belief Com
mittees as the latter saw fit S. S. Marvin,
of Pittsburg, and Mayor Fitler, of Phila
delphia, were appointed a Committee in
their respective cities to transact the busi
ness of the commission. All shipments of
clothing, provisions, etc, must be sent to
?fAfter the meeting of the commission had
iildjourned, Governor Beaver spoke of his
.-visit abont the vicinity, to your correspond
ent He Said:
A TALK TIIOM THE GOVERNOR.
"I had ho idea that the damage was so
great until I made a personal inspection of
the wnoie piace. upon my other visit
here, X did not see enough of the ruins, and
then the worst of the desolation escaped my
observation. The situation since then has
greatly improved, and the work of giving
relief has progressed nicely. The rork ot
cleaning up the streets and opening the
rivers has been carried on more rapidly
than anyone could expect I thought it
hardly possible that so much could be done
in two weeks, and the place does not look
"fee the same towni visited ten days ago.
The sitnation has been mastered by General
Hastings, and it is only a question of a few
days' more hard, unremitting work, until
the debris is all cleared up. All our efforts
will now be directed to 'make this relief
work self-supporting. The best charity is
the kind that makes people help themselves.
If the residents of this place see that we
want them to strike out and go ahead in
stead of waiting for us to help them, they
will get along a great deal more rapidly.
The commission appreciate-the advantage ot
having the people with them."

Johnstown, June 19. The officials of
the Pennsylvania Eailroad to-day appealed
to General Hastings for soldiers to drive
away the large number of tramps who are
coming into the borough daily. The first
few days after the work of clearing up the
debris had been started the guards were very
strict and allowed no people having busi
ness there to enter the borough. In a great
many cases where there was a doubt thoe
coming toward the place were made to take
an oath that they were notcoming as "sight
seers" or for any but honest purposes. This
had the effect of keeping a great many ob
jectionable people out of the town. It any
sightseers or tramps managed to get in they
were put to work as soon as discovered.
Very few got through the lines, however,
owing the vigilance of the guards along the
This had the effect of gathering large
numbers of objectionable persons outside
the lines. At New Florence and Bolivar
there are scores of tramps all waiting op
Eortunitics to jump freight trains and coine
ere. At the former place is a camp of
them near the water tank where the trains
stop. This morning abont 15 of them
boarded a train and refused to get off.
They have become so bold that they delay
train crews, and almost run the train to
suit themselves. General Wiley will issue
orders to the guards to be on the lookout
for tramps, and if any are found in the
borough thev must be made to work.

Johnstown, June 19. Detective Mason,
who was engaged by the officers of the Four
teenth Begiment to investigate the alleged
disorderly acts of the members of the regi
ment at Cambria City, Monday night, made
his report to Colonel Perchment to-night.
The detective found that the men had been
slightly intoxicated in a saloon and one of
them made a flippant remark about the
woman who was tending bar. She called
several of the members of the tin-tag police
who gathered there a "mob" and staited
after the soldiers The latter were arrested.
When the detective inquired to-day why
the men were arrested the chief of police
who ordered the arrest, and the burgess also,
stated that they did not know.
The soldiers are insulted everywhere they
go in the town, the police thinking that is
what they are here tor. Colonel Perchment
stated to-night that the regiment would
probably stay here for another week, and at
the end of that time the militia would be
called off altogether on account of their
being no further use for them.

Johnstown, June 10. Major Phillips,
"the dynamiter," began blowing up the
drilt lodged in the Conemaugh above the
gorge to-day, for the purpose of trying to
dislodge the body of Miss Paulson, of Pitts
burg, who is supposed to be lying some
where under the drift along the banks of
the stream. If was near this place that
Miss Bryan, of Philadelphia, her com
panion, was lound, and H is supposed that
the other body is in the immediate vicinity.
Dnring the blasting an unusually heavy
charge was touched off and it came very
near putting an end to some of the military
officers. A large stone crashed through the
canvas of the dining tent, narrowly escap
ing hitting .several of the men. A news
paper correspondent, who was lying ill, in
one of the tents, also made a narrow escape
from being fctruck by a heavy piece of tim

"About two -years ago, after suffering
for nearly two years from rheumatic
pout, being able to walk only with great
discomfort, and having tried various
remedies, including mineral waters,
without relief, I saw by an advertise
ment in a Chicago paper that a man had
been relieved of this distressing com
plaint, after long suffering, by taking
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I then decided to
make a trial of this medicine, and took
it regularly for eight months, and am
pleased to state that it has effected a
complete cure. I have since had no re
