Johsstown, July 5. A well-known
Philadelphia firm, manufacturers of oil
cloth, to-day telegraphed their customers
here that they had canceled all their in
debtedness, and would send an agent to
stock them up again. This is one of the
offers of assistance that are appreciated by
the .merchants. Drummers are flocking
into the town by the score. One commer
cial agent came in to-day with 21 trunks
filled with boots and shoes. Every line of
trade has been represented, and the mer
chants are having no trouble in purchasing
on long time and good terms.
There will soon be nearly 106 new business
stands opened here. The stores erected by
Contractor Hushes on the public square
were awarded to-day. There were more
than 100 "applications, and as there were not
enongb stores to go round, it was decided to
make the award by drawing lots. Colonel
John P. Linton and Judge McMasters con
ducted the drawing, and these were the

CALCULATED TO CHILL CHARITY.
Adjutant General Hastings Criticises Sir.
Jerome's Letter to Dr. Dlcklnnon.
IrEOM A STAFF COKBESPOXDrXT.J
Johnstown, July 5. The letter written
by Dr. Frances S. Jerome, President of the
Yellow Cross Society, to Dr. Fanny Dick
inson, of Chicago, iu regard to the distribu
tion of funds, has stirred up the State offi
cers here who have been in charge. They
grow very wrathy in speaking of the lady,
and say she does not represent anyone but
herself. In talking of the matter to-night
Adjutant General Hastings said:
"Mrs. Jerome does not represent anybody
but herself in the matter, and had no right
to talk the way she did. "What she said to
the public in the letter does cot reflect the
sentiment of the people of this valley. She
has no authority to speak for anybody else
in this community. I do not wish to say
anything disrespectful about her, but her
letter is calculated to prevent the flow of
money to the sufferers."
The commissary department officers de
nied the statements of Mrs. Jerome that the
people were suffering for the want of bed
ding, etc. Your correspondent interviewed
the lady in regard to the matter and she re
iterated her statements made yesterday.
"The people who have denied what I
have stated, do so because they do not know
of the suffering that exists, and they do not
go around ana visit the people, but their
knowledge is derived from reports and what
they hear from the outside. If theywould
make a house-to-house inspection in the
same manner tnat I am doing, they would
know better. If they wish me to prove
what I have stated, I can do so by taking
them along with me to Cambria City and
let them see the misery with their own

tSFZCIAL TELEGRAM TO TUE SISFATCH.1
Johnstown, Jnlv 5. The Johnstown J
Democrat issued Its first paper since the
Hood to-day, and its plucky editor, S. D.
Woodruff, who was badly washed out by
the flood, says that he expects to stay on top
now "until an avalanche ot cyclone comes
along." In addition to a complete list ot
the .dead to this date the paper contains in
teresting information relating to the flood.
Regarding the mooted question whether
warning had been given of the reservoir
breaking this statement is made:
Shortly after coon the following dispatch
was received at the Pennsylvania Railroad
tower, and was telephoned over town, com
munication by way of Lincoln bridge having
been cutoff: "Reports from Conemaogh Lake,
Via. Soutn Fork, at 12:10 say the water is run
ning over, and the dam may give way at any
moment. Notify the people of Johnstown at
once to be prepared for the worst." This was
signed "Operator," but, as reports of the dam
breaking were always current when
we had had high water, people
had become used to such talk and were
not easily alarmed. At anv rate, it was the ex
perience of those who made an effort to warn
the people that the matter was treated with in
difference. A second message was received at
2:44, which said that the dam was breaking and
the warning was circulated on a few of the
streets, but the people had no time nor the
opportunity then to get out.
As to the part the stone bridge clayed in
the disaster, arguments are presented to show
that the bridge was insvrumental in savin?
at least 6,000 lives. B

Johnstown, July C The clothes from
the body of Mrs. Charles C. Moore, wife of
the assistant ticket agent of the Pennsyl

to-day at the Millville schoolhouse morgue.
The remains were found and buried as "un
known" on Tuesday. To-day the husband
recognized some of her garments, and he
will have the body exhumed.
There were fire bodies recovered to-day.
None of them could be identified, owing

a more careful registration, expects to com
plete its work to-morrow night. There are
still a number of persons who have not yet
registered, and notice has been sent to them
that they must appear at Alma Hall and
fill up the necessary blanks if they hope to
participate in the first distribution ot the
reliet by the State Commission. The data
gathered by the Board of Inquiry will be
turned over to Judge Cummin, who will
present It to the State Belief Commission on
Judge Cummin said to-day that while he
could not speak for the commission, he
thought it would accept the work of the
local committee, and will make its first dis
tribution upon the basis of this work. The
Judge spoke very highly of the work of the
Finance Committee, and said it was
thorough and complete.

Habbisbubo, Pa., July 3. I
To Hon. Hngta J. Grant, Mayors
Your letter and appeal received. We have
expended nearly $1,000,000 for the relief of the
Johnstown sufferers, in food, clothing, shelter
and furnltnre. We have made no distribution
of money, for the reason that the people have
not and cannot yet furnish a complete schedule
of the losses, in view of the situation of their
busineot men, who are embarrassed with their
own affairs. We have yet a number of our
commission who are now assisting in securing
reliable statistics upon which we can base onr
actions. Everything is being done which is
possible to give prompt and Intelligent relief.
The wishes of your committee are Deing care
fully observed. We will soon know how much
money we will have in our own hands, and re
spectfully suggest that your committee indicate
what amount will be placed at our disposal and
when. People of our locality have had appro
priations sent to them in money for distribu
tion by their local committees at such points
where the people could furnish an account and
data to govern the distribution.
