Or a Miracle That Even .Any
Two Men Dead Last Night, But the
WHAT ENGINEER BROWNE SAYS.
He Does Not Think the City Can Be Held
Liable for the Men.
BED POSD MAT IET BE MADE A PARK
That ugly accident at the Bed Food,
which resulted in several fatalities at an
early hour yesterday morning, was very mi
raculously affected in some of its results, in
asmuch as the fire men, all at work in the
sewer at the same time, were not all killed
Since the little dam was built on Center
avenue, above the pond, a few weeks ago,
and the water was carried off through a pipe
the pond itself has been practically empty,
and on that account the men were enabled
to work in the fcewer. The hitter, connect
ing with the SO or 40-foot "drop" at the
pond, is about 100 feet long, and
is ' laid parallel with Soho street
This sewer, as most of the readers know,
had been clogged up, and on that account
the water, which could find no outlet, gath
ered in the pond, but was kept pumped out
until Saturday night's sudden and violent
shower. During the last week the men in
the sewer had been using several explosive
charges, and had blown open the front of
the sewer, and after the mouth had been
laid bare the work of cleaning it out was
r comparatively easy.
On Saturday night there were the follow
ing named men employed in the sewer: Joe
McCarthy, Andrew McGregor, Robert Mc
Munn, William McCIoy and Robert Daly.
THE HEAVY RAIN,
about 8 o'clock, had loosened a great deal
of theabutment above the pond, and a large
pool of water had formed immediately over
the still partly closed, pond entrance of the
sewer. At this point was the deep drop,
and about 2 o'clock this drop caved in, and
the water rushed wildly through it and
the sewer. The men were all in
there at the time, using a strong
stream of water to clean the outlet from the
opposite side. When the water came upon
them they were all knocked down and car
ried along with the stream. Billy McCIoy
and Robert McMunn were carried about 300
feet, and then they got ashore in the ravfnc,
which runs from Center to Fifth aveno.-.
Both men were badly injured. Their bodies
were bruised, and, from the amount of dirt,
water and gravel which they had swallowed,
they were nearly drowned.
McMunn was taken to the Homeopathic
Hospital, and, according to the physicians'
account yesterday afternoon, the patient will
McCIoy was taken to his home, 21 Logan
street, and Dr. Shaw was called to attend
him. He was resting comparatively easy
yesterday a'ternoon, and, it is thought, will
get over his injuries. His daughter stated
to a Dispatch reporter that her father had
a presentiment on Saturday night that
something would happen to him, and ex
pressed the sense of tear before he went to
The other three men were carried down
by the stream in the ravine as far as Fifth
avenue, a distance of half a mile. They
were all three found at the culvert there.
Robert Daly was then dead; but McCarthy
and McGregor, although they were uncon
, scious, still breathed.
McGregor was taken to the Homeopathic
Hospital, and died at 10 o'clock yesterday
morning. McCarthy was taken to the
Mercy Hospital, and, from the last ac
counts heard from there, he was "doing
very well." That this man, after having
been knocked against stones and thrown
over rocks for a distance of about half a
mile, and was not killed outright, simply
affords pretty good evidence of the very
nearest possible thing to a miraculous
The inquest will be held on July 27,
when the injured have sufficiently recov
ered to testify.
"The Red Fond sewer is open at last, but
the achievement was too dearly bought,"
was the remark made by Mr. William R.
Browne, of the Bureau of Engineering and
Surveys, when a Dispatch reporter called
to see him last night at his residence, the
Fast End Hotel. Then he said:
"It was 9 o'clock last night when I
was at the pond to see how the men
were getting along with their work, and
I had not the slightest idea that there was
auy danger of such an accident, or I would
certainly have prohibited the men from pro
ceeding with their work. There were cer
tainly not more than about
A. HUNDRED CUBIC FEET
of water in the pond, and that quantity
i could not harm anybody working in the
sewer. In fact, I have all alone observed
the greatest care and caution with the men.
Of course that rain last night was an un
usually heavy shower, and all the water
from the surrounding hills must have ac
cumulated within a very short time."
"Will the citv be liable for the lives
"I do not know anything about that. I
do not see why, because negligence cannot
be charged against us."
"What will be done with the pond now,
after the sewer is opened?"
"The first thing we shall do is to make a
wooden sewer under the street, and then a
tnore substantial one. That sewer will be
right through the pond, and the latter will
be filled up."

So far as could be learned yesterday the
Law and Order League did not arrest any of
the slot .machines for performing worldly
labor on the Sabbath or for vice and im
morality, as had been more than indicated
by the exclusive publication of an intention
to do so in Saturday morning's Dispatch.
An effort was made to find Mr. H. M.
Black, agent of the slot machines, hut his
office at Eleventh street and Fenn avenue
was not open nor did he seem to be in the
city. The machines were merrily at work
all day and did a thriving businesi, most of
them proving greatly inadequate to the
It is possible that the Law and Order
League was deterred from proceeding sum
marily against the machines by the univer
sal chorus of derision that greeted the pub
lication of their intention. An attorney
who has given the subject some thought
stated last night that the league might be
hesitating on account of certain nice legal
points involved in tbe matter. One of
these is the fact is that in nearly every in
stance the agent of tbe machines has placed
them upon private property, by and with
the consent of the respective owners. Re
moval of the machines would doubtless be
construed as trespass under the circum
stances. There were two thirst-quenchers in active
operation yesterday. The Federal street

of keeping open on Sunday indefinitely

Electric Workers In Other Cltlen Are Organ
The organization formed in Pittsburg by
the electrical workers a month ago, known
as the Fittsburg Flectrical Union No 1,
promises to become national. Applications
for copies of the constitution, by-laws, etc.,
have in from several parts of the country,
and charters have been taken out for New
York and Kansas City, where unions are
now being formed.
The objects of the new organization are
largely social and educational. The Fitts
burg union is forming a library of books
bearing on the work of the members, and a
collection of electrical appliances will be
added soon. The advantages to the public
from this new order will be in having elec
trical work done bv skilled men, as none
others are admitted. The union in Fitts
burg has already gotten an advance of 25
cents a day for its members employed by
one local company.

all the stories they tell, these
modern fishermen and their actual lives in

troubled waters of a fishing camp. There
is. The only fact to be impressed by the

for prose, unmixed, and for his other com

-ACTUAL CAMP LIFE.
A Dispatch reporter spent a day and
night, the latter part of last week, at the
encampment of the Irene Fishing Club on
the Allegheny river, at Templeton, and
took notes of what he saw and heard. The
reporter arrived just in time for supper,
with his appetite in such a condition that it
could only be tickled into real activity by
tarkling a good mess of fried bass. He was
seated at a long table under a canvas fly
with 18 jolly fishermen.
"Bring on the fish," was the order given,
and he was somewhat surprised and disap
pointed when, from the far end of the.
table, came tbe answer:
"If you really want fish, you had better
go to some other place than a fishing
The Irene camp is on the opposite side of
tbe river from Templeton, on a little 300
foot plateau, about ten feet (frequently bare
feet) above high water mark. The camp is
well shaded by forest trees. Backofitisa
hill, almost mountainous. To the left is a
ravine, through which a small brook flows.
In this latter all the rubbish of the camp is
thrown, and is carried to the river, thus
affording a good sanitary arrangement.
At this encampment there are two sleep
ing tents 12x18; also a storage tent, about
the same size. A kitchen stands next to
the latter. The next is a canvas table cov
er. The camps also have a spring house and
an ice house. The arrangements are com
plete. The great bed-ticks, at one side, in
each main tent, rest on such slats as the
boughs of trees, placed across two large
logs. On the other side of the canvas;
boxes, trunks, chairs and various other arti
cles are placed. The sleeping apartments
will accommodate 30 or 35 people. In the
storage tent the commissariat is complete.
The kitchen contains a No. 8 cookin?
stove, and is open on all sides, thus giving
the cook every opportunity of keeping cool
while standing over a hot stove. To the
right of this is the banquet hall, which is
about 20 feet in length and 10 wide. The
contents of this department of the encamp
ment are a long stationary table and bench es.
It is also open on all sides. While seated
at this table plenty of fresh air and a grand
view for a mile -up and down the river and
of the hills across can be had.
The next necessary appendage to", the
can.p and what appears to be necessaryin
all fishing camps is the springhouse. In
this is kept a keg of beer on tap, with the
faucet protruding. Ice and sawdust do
their work well for it. The springhouse is
a very neat stone structure, which was built
two years ago, and is now covered with

moss. Next on the list, and what appears
to be a new idea, is that of a large frame ice
house, 20x40 feet. In it are 20 tons of ice
and also 10 or 15 quarter barrels of beer and
other lubricants. There are several lava
tories scattered about and a dish washing
department handy to the kitchen.
Breakfast is served at 6 A. m. to those
who are up in time for it. At this meal
oatmeal gruel (they just call it "oats"),
fresh beet, coffee, syrup, bread and butter
and several other dishes are served; but,
alas! no delicious fish. Milk is given to
those who prefer it to coffee. There is
plenty of life in the crowd at breakfast
time, of course. "Say, Bill, pass me those
oats, and don't take all day to do itl Chase
that cream up this way," and many other
such expressions are heard, etiquette hav
ing been thrown to the winds. There is a
great deal ot joking, and plenty of common
sense talk also.
At noon dinner for the hungry consists of
turtle soup, if they have been so fortunate
as to have secured "a turtle; frogs, when tbe
green-bjeked croaker is captured (which,
fortunately for him, does not happen very
often), and other substantial.
Supper is usually made up of mutton,
chicken and a big variety of other things,
with and without wings.
MORE ABOUT FISH.
The reporter insisted on knowing at
which meal the fish were to be "dished up."
The inquiry was answered by uproarious
"Don't you ever have any of the finny
Another roar of merriment,but one fisher,
more feeling than the rest for the reporter's
sensitive nature, answered:
"We have been here now two weeks, and
in that time only three fishjiave been
caught. Their combined weight would not
It Looks Very Poetic
be a pound. One was caught on the out
line which we kept in the river, but as to
how the other two were caught it's beyond
my power to tell. Evidently they were
dead. The only fishing tackle we have
with us is the outline I spoke of and two
turtle nets. We do no fishing or hunting
td any extent. These are all the weapons
we have, with the exception of an old blun
derbuss, the capacity ot which to shoot I
doubt very much."
He pointed to the spring and ice houses,
however, as indications of occupation.
At the encampment in the way of pets
are a dog endowed with the shamrock name
of "Barney;" a mascot cat with three brand
new kittens, all named "Irene," after tbe
club; and a half dozen hens that cackle
after depositing fresh, eggs for their kind
owners, who can't eat fish.
Athletic sports are indulged in with the
aid. of dumbbells and Indian clubs. By
this and other exercises the campers usually
gain from 5 to 15 pounds in one season's
outing.. After supper they all repair to the
river, where about 20 minutes are spent in
swimming. As to games, quoits and cards
are the principal ones. Poker is usually
the game, but no gambling is allowed.
They have about two packs of cards for
every member. They often have visitors,
numbering as high as 30 or 35 at a time.
Lady visitors often come, and drinking and
cards take back seats then. Music is heard
out on tbe river at night, principally from
accordions and the cat. The camp is finely
decorated with flags, 50 large ones being
used. They are fastened around in the
foliage, and present a very pleasing appear
ance. The club's name is displayed on a
mg sign aown on tne river nanic.
FEW ARE KTER ENFORCED;
The rules by which the club is regulated
are not very strict. As soon as one member
or visitor becomes visibly affected by drink
ing, no more drinks will be given him under
any pretext. No shooting or hunting is
allowed in or around camp. This rule is
not entorced, however. Any member who
refuses to do work that the Captain, Adam
Reed, orders done, is fined from 25 cents to
SI. The work is divided among tbe mem
bers, except tbe cooking, which is done
bv a professional. The work to he done is
simpiv the washing of the dishes and cloth
ing. The campers all take good wear
ing apparel along to be used on
special occasions, such as Sundays.
Slippers are used by all members of
the organization, except when they go to
the river bank. Un Sunday some of the
fishermen attend church, and the others
sleep or row on the river. No card playing j
or oiner game is auowea on Sunday. THE
Dispatch is scanned carefully everv day
by all the clubmen. Other reading matter
is also kept at the camp, such as popular
A rule not mentioned is thatagainst fight
ing, which is strictly prohibited, but is
sometimes indulged in, especially between
the cook and the consumers of the cook's
work.when the desserts, and especially the
usn, are Drownea too muca.
The ages of fishing club members range
from 20 to 40 years, the Captain, stated.
They usually support the club by assess
ments and by holding picnics and bails. By
so doing the'elub is enabled to leave on a
four or six weeks' camping tour, expenses
The Captain further'said that it was his
opinion that the reason Fittsburg and vicin
ity have so many fishing clubs is because of
the closing of the iron mills and glass works
in the summer.
THEY HAVE MUCH TIME.
This gives those who work at furnaces
nearly all the rest of the year an opportu
nity of staying away longer than they other
wise could. Mill men and glass workers
prefer the country in the majority of cases,
where they are together and are not bur
dened with ' society."
. It is a very cheap way of living; the aver
age cost per day is 40 cents per man. Three
gallons of coffee and about 20ipounds of
meat are used daily in the Irene camp. The
night the reporter spent in the camp was
very cool, and the statement was made that
it is always so.
About ten clubs are camped on the river
bank between Logansport and Mahoning.
There are several at Logansport and at

An ancient maiden lady with long gray
ringlets and a pretty white cat on her knee,
was the center of attraction at the Union de
pot last evening. The animal was very
tame, and would place its face against the
cheek of its mistress, fond of the lady's ca
resses. More than one person smiled at the
woman with the kitten.

IS FLEMON THE MAN?
South Carolina Officers Not Allowed

STEONG PEOOF FOUND IN TWO LETTEES
The police authorities are pretty thor
oughly convinced that John Yeldell, the
minister, known as Rev. E. Flemon,
wanted for murder in South Carolina, is the
right man. United States Marshal Storm
and Deputy Sheriff Thomas J. Lyon, who
arc here to identify him and take him back
for trial, have not yet seen him, but they
both know him well and have described
him so accurately that all doubt as to his
identity has been removed. These officers
stopped in Harrishurg on the way to Pitts
burg and had the requisition papers signed
by the Governor.
This morning at 9 o'clock Yeldell will be
brought into court, and confronted by the
two men for identification. An exciting
scene is expected. The minister is a bright
fellow, and has ingratiated himself into the
hearts of the colored people. His arrest is
the general subject of conversation amorg
his congregation, and many of them will
not believe that their preacher is the man.
Yeldell has given out that if he is taken
back to South Carolina he will be killed,
and this has stirred up the people of his own
ONLY SEE LY2TCHI2TGS THERE.
When Marshal Storm heard of this state
menthe laughed tnd.said Yeldell would be
given a fair trial, He stated that only six
j negroes had been lynched in Edgewood
county since the war, and thej brutally
murdered an old man of 80 years. Three of
the men, by the way, were ministers.
Marshal Strom is a wealthy plantation
owner, and he says Yeldell has picked many
a bale of cotton for him. He said he would
know him by his voice and walk, even if
Yeldell were to paint his face, although he
has not seen him since the murder was com
mitted, four yearsVago. Ycldell's father,
according to the Marshal, was a bad man,
and gave the authorities more trouble
than any colored man in the region.
He says John YeldeH ia desperate fellow,
and both officers admit tbey are afraid of
him. They are supplied with a good pair

Blowers Are Being: Imported Under Con

Joseph L. Evans, President of the Cen

gard to tbe investigation of the importation
of glassworkers, that it was not his inten
tion, nor that of the Trades Council.to pros
ecute anyone for the alleged offense, nor to
claim the $l,OC0 penajty allowed in such
cases His course, which has been unani
mously approved by the Council, is to com
pel the sending back of these men, if it shall
be found that they are here unlawfully.
The whole case, he added, is now in the
hands of the United States District At
torney, and when that officer decides upon
his mode of procedure, the case will go on.
Mr. Homer L. McGaw, the prosecutor in
the case, confirmed tbe statement of Mr.

Tbe Government authorities cannot act too

X surgeons can iufirmtTi more extensive ex

surgeons of thi3 county who have opened the
abdomen. Three or four of them have per

and a resident specialist just recently per
HIS HUNDREDTH OPERATION".
"As to this particular operation of intes
tinal resection, Dr. Sutton, of Allegheny,
removed three inches of intestine from a
patient in the spring of 1683, and I believe
the lady patient was still living three years
afterward. It is a delicate operation, hut it
has been done scores of times by Pittsburg
"I wonder if the public knows that
within a decade surgery has so advanced
that any obscure disease in the abdominal
regions can now be located and the cause of
the disease removed. A sample case was
treated in this city but two weeks since.
The wife of a professional man of eminence
had a mysterious disease which baffled any
diagnosis after the ancient style of medical
or surgical treatment. Finally an incision
was made in the abdomen, the gall-bag was
opened, and, through the latter, a number
of stones were removed from the liver ducts.
The patient has already recovered, and the
case will receive great attention from the
medical profession, as such an operation is
almost without precedent. Among the re
markable cases handled by Pittsburg sur
geons within a few years, are diseases of
every organ in the abdominal cavity, in
cluding tbe entire intestinal canal. The
spleen, gall-bag. liver, kidneys, and
have all been treated, and with re
markable minimization of fatalities. The
ancient Cssarian operation has been re
vived and improved, and at present both

A STARTLING STATEMENT.
"One-half the murders of the present day
could be prevented by the use of the ab
dominal methods of surgery, that is if the
wound was -in that region of the body.
How? Simply enough. Gunshot or stab
bing wounds to be fatal must sever either an
artery or an intestine. If an artery is
severed what is called internal bleedinz
fills the stomach with blood, which de
composes, causing peritonitis, and death
follows in a few hours. Modern abdominal
jsurgery proposes to cut the patient open
and apply a ligature to the internal artery
and remove the blood that has flowed into
the stomach, and in nine out of ten cases,
no matter how ugly tbe wound may have
been, the patient will recover. The same
method will save life in cases of an in
testinal wound. The treatment must be
rapid, as a matter of course. Yon remem

treatment would have saved his life. The
