PLACING THE BLAME.
Coroner Evans, of Cambria County,
Determined to Ascertain
"WHERE KESPOUSIBILITI RESTS.
And Whether the Breaking of the Dam
Was Due to Kegllgence.
flE IS YEEI MUCH IN EARNEST
Ana Will Obtain Expert Testimony and Blft the
Hitter to the Bottom.
Coroner Evans, of Cambria county, seems
determined to do all in bis power to fix the
responsibility for the recent disaster, or at
least to ascertain whether negligence was
the cause of the dam breaking. He in
tends to obtain the testimony of expert en
gineers who haTe visited South Pork lately.
He says he has beard of no damage suits
being brought against the fishing club.
IFBOX A EXACT COBBXSFOXDXXT.
Johnstowx, June 20. Coroner Evans,
of Cambria county, will resume the work
of investigation next "Wednesday in earn
est. So far he has been too busy, caring
for the living, to proceed. The Coroner is a
line-looking old man of massive proportions
and determined expression. He is a man
of strength, and if the jurymen partake
somewhat of the qualities of the Coroner,
Something is likely to drop in the way of a
startling decision. Coroner Evans is very
much in earnest, and means to place the
responsibility for the recent terrible disas
ter, if, indeed, human negligence had any
thing to do with the frightful catastrophe.
In a short chat to-day Dr. Evans said:
"I will make an effort, when the jury
meets, to secure some expert testimony
about the condition of the dam. I have in
mind John Fulton, who examined the reser-
jroir, and a draughtsman at Jloxham, whose
iiame I hare forgotten. I understand other
I mgineers have inspected the structure, but I
'l! ave been so busy that I do not even know
1 EXPEBT TESTIMOXT WANTED.
" At this point the reporter suggested
Engineer Brinkerhoff, of the Mining and
Civil Engineering Journal, and some others
who had been at South Fork. Mr. Drinker
lioflfs opinion of the dam has already ap
peared in The Dispatch. The Coroner
wrote down the names suggested, and said
lie would endeavor to secure sworn deposi
tions of theirtestimony. Continuing, Coro
ner Evans said:
"I will take the jury to the dam if I can't
get satisfactory evidence. The trouble is
that the Coroner has not the control of any
funds. I can't pay experts to go to South
Fork and examine the dam forme. In fact,
I am not allowed by law to pay witnesses,
but I can compel them to attend the hear
ing. From what I am told and have read,
the dam was withont a flood-gate
of any kind to relieve the pressure of
the water. The reason given by the mem
bers of the club, is that they were
ATBAID OF LOSING THE FISH.
"It seems to me they value the finny tribe
more than the human race. I think they
could easily have had llood-gates in the
dam, and prevented the fish from escaping
by. the use of screens. But there is no use
talking about that now. I see the "West
moreland county jury has rendered a ver
dict, and all 1 can see in it is that so many
people died from the effects of a flood, caused
presumably by the breaking of the dam at
South Fork. I should think there is not
much doubt about that by this time. I
haven't heard of any damage suits as yet. I
lost my library and surgical instruments,
and my office is ruined; but $1,000 will
cover my entire loss. I was more fortunate
than my neighbors."
COXTBIBUTIONS OP CLUB MEMBERS.
The Coroner wanted to know if the dam
people had contributed anything to the suf
ferers, and if so, ho w much. The reporter
"was unable to answer this question, but as
many of them are very charitable men, I as
sured him that 1 thought some at least had
contributed liberally. He then asked if
3fr. Carnegie had given much money, but
Shis generosity is on record.
It is expected there will be some trouble
when the time comes to lay out the lots.

town and the records of all deeds are pre
served at the Court House in Ebensburg,
and after all the various plots may be lo
cated withont much wrangling. At any
rate there is no nse borrowing trouble and
worriment Concerning this vexed ques
tion, Coroner Evans said:
SO GBEAT DIFFICULTY ANTICIPATED.
"I do not think there will be much trou
ble on this score. In the annihilated parts
of the town the streets were nearly all payed
with Belgian blocks, and these remain in
tact "With the streets definitely located, I
can't see that the engineers will have much
trouble to renew the plan of the town, not
only on paper, but on the earth."
a Coroner Evans did not think a consulta
tion of the Coroners of the different counties
Vould be called. He hasn't heard what the
officials of Indiana and Armstrong counties
have done. Coroner Hammer and the Com
missioners of "Westmoreland county left the
reporters under the impression that the ver
dict of their jury would be pretty salty, but
when they came to pen their decision, they
weren't even sure that the South Fork dam
had caused the flood. Coroner Evans doesn't
say much on this subject, because he is not
allowed, but if anybody can be held re
sponsible for the breaking of that dam the
jury will try to name them. Israel.

ALL THE SOUTHERN MAIL
Which Left Knshvllle on One Kl(ht Has
Mysteriously Disappeared A Large
Sntn of Dloney Thought "to
Nashville, Tenn., June 20. All the
mail that left the Nashville, postoffice for
the South on the night of May 7 has disap
peared. The fact has been withheld by the
postoffice officials that the Investigation
might not be hampered. For two days a
Government inspector or detective has been
in the city, but he has proceeded so quietly
that his presence has been known to only
attaches of the department, and not
all of them were aware of his
coming. The mail for Southern points as
far as New Orleans was arranged as usual,
put in a pouch, locked tip and delivered at
the doer of the postoffice to the driver of the
wagon which carries mail to the depot The
pouch was locked up in this wagon, which
drove off toward the depot and that Is the
last heard of it asyet The loss of the pouch
was detected in two or three days, and in
According to a rule of the Government, a
number of Southern postoffices are required
to daily remit io the Nashville postoffice
any excess of receipts oyer a certain sum,
which varies according to the volume of
business done at a place. This is done that
no large amount of money may be stopped
at any office. Nashville in turn makes a
daily remittance to Louisville, and Louisville
to New York. Jieceipts for these remittances
are daily sent to the postmasters forwarding
the money. On May 9 the postmaster! to
whom receipts were due from Dr.' Cnrrer for
remittances of May 6, wrote that their
vouchers had not arrived. The banks at
Franklin. Columbia and Pulaski then noti
fied him of the failure to get checks, etc.
Proof that the entire mail from Nashville to
the South bad disappeared rapidly accumu
lated, and Dr. Currer made an investiga
tion. He learned, it is stated, that the mail
pouch had been delivered at the door of
the'postoffice as usual to the driver at Ihe
contractors wagon. The mail clerk on the
train which should have received the pack
ages stated that he bad never seen anything
otit. The pouch, it was thus reasoned, had
disappeared after leaving the postoffice.
Bnt how? To settle that question Dr.
Currer on May 13, notified the department
at "Washington that it might make
an investigation. Nothing further was
heard in this connection until, as stated,
Mr. Stubbs, a special agent, came to Nash
ville last Tuesday to hunt the affair down.
It is impossible now to learn how much
money was in the mail. It was destined for
a large and important territory, and the pre
sumption is that the pouch contained much

Cured of Catarrhal Asthma,
Mrs. Alice Brownhill. an English lady, bnt
who has lived in this country for nearly two
years, has for the past ten years been badly
afflicted with asthma. It was produced by a
catarrhal poison In her system that was slowly
but surely doing its deadly work. A part of
the secretion that formed in her head was dis
charged through her nose, and a part dropped
down the back part of her throat and which,
setting up an irritated condition in her lnngs,
produced asthma. She coughed, and her breath
at times was very short She had pains under
her shoulder Wades, and also over her eyes.
Her appetite was very poor, and the little food
she was able to eat gave her Etomach much dis
tress and belching of eas, and every morning
she would vomit up her food. As has been
stated, her breath was very short, and every
time she caught a cold she would have to be
bolstered up in bed during the night in order
to breathe. "When she applied, last April, to
the physicians of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia
Institute for treatment, the wheezing fn her
lungs could be beard all over the house. On
May 24 she says "that my catarrh and asthma
have been entirely cured by the physicians of
the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute. I hereby
sign my name.

Continues with unabated vigor, and nowhere is there a more noticeable
increase in sales than in our
POPULAR J30YS' DEPARTMENT.
May be this is accounted for by the fact that our reductions here
are the greatest in our entire establishment. Why we have literally cut
the prices of Boys' Suits all to pieces and are offering the best values
ever known in Juvenile garments. Ask any of the thousands of mothers
who bought of us since the commencement of this sale. They can 4ell
you! They know something of the reductions! Ask them; they'll tell
you. Or, better still, come and see with your own eyes! But here are
the awful cuts! Call and judge for yourselves.
will buy choice of all our
Suits, hundreds of which
Short Pant Snifs
a to 18 YSAICS.
And you can take your pick of
Long Pant Suits, many of which
from 812 and 814, for
Long Pant Suits
IO to 18 TEAKS.
AND BEAR THESE FACTS IN MIND:
Whether it's a good, durable Suit for play, at 75c; a better article for a
couple of dollars, or a rich and princely outfit for $5 or $8, you'll find
them all here in vast quantities, latest styles, and in magnificent assort
ment. And YOUR choice, mind you, of any and all of these splendid
Suits at about half LESS in many instances their former or regular
prices. And to think how timely is this salel Just at" the very closing
week of school, when so many boys're in sore need of new clothes!
This is the final cut in Boys' Suits, remember, and it's only for a few
days. Those who come first will select the best, of course.
OUR STOCK OF BOYS' SHIRT WAISTS
mu3t go with the rest Nothing will be reserved. 89c now for our
finest Star Waists, worth $1 25; and 48c for former 75c Star Waists.
Other fine brands of Waists from 25c up.

Ours is the leading stock in extent, variety and low prices. All the
novelties in tan and russet, and styles in calf. Don't fail to visit our
