Johnstown, July 27. This afternoon
Mr. John Snider .purchased a self-cocking
Smith & "Wesson revolver at the hardware
store ot Bantly 8s Fronheiser, and after
loading it turned to leave the store. Before
he reached the door, however, ho fired four
shots in rapid succession, aiming at his own
head. The last one took eflect, and passing
through the skull caused instant death.
Snider had lived in "Woodvale before the
flood, but his pleasant home, with wife and
children, was jwcpt away and all lost
Snider himself got out of the wreck at the
stone bridge. He was very despondent and
frequently expressed himself thatlifetohim
was not worth living. His lather and
mother and several brothers live here and
are very much shocked at his tragic death.
THE BED CBOSS SOOIETY
recently erected a two-story building, 45r
100 feet, on the site of the Episcopal Church
that was swept away. This afternoon it
was formally dedicated by giving a 5-o'cloclc
tea, at which the leading people of the place
were present. The Bed Cross people have
made many warm friends for themselves on
acconntof "their methods of work here, and
the opening of the building is another move
which reflects much credit upon them.
Miss Clara Barton, the President ot the
society, has been giving her whole time to
relieving the wants of the distressed here,
and it was through her instrumentality that
this projeet was brought to an early com
pletion. The purpose ot this building is to
afford shelter and a home for those who have
no place to go to, and as soon as one family
finds a permanent home some one else will
take their place. In this way relief will be
afforded a large number of people.
At the dedication Miss Clara Barton,
President ot the Association, referred to the
work which the society was doing, and
stated that the Johnstown disaster was the
twelfth great national calamity at which
the Bed Cross had established permanent
quarters and lent their aid to the suffering.
She explained the uses to which the new
building is to be put, which is to furnish a
living place for people until they can
establish themselves in a perma
nent home. Accommodations are furnished
for 72 people ana the rooms and lodgings are
Vpp lint the neonle must board themselves.
Letters of regret were read from a number of
prominent people who couia not De present,
and speeches were "made bv Bev. Brangden,
the new pastor of the Episcopal Church
here; Hon. L. D. "Woodruff, editor ot the
Johnstown Democrat, and others.
JLN EXHAUSTED XBEA8UBY.
Council at its last meeting approved bills
amounting to f 1,610 38, chiefly for the pay
ment of the officials, but the Borough Treas
urer gave notice that -there were not funds
enough on hand to pay them.
Tom L. Johnson, Chairman of the Board
of Inauirv. who was in town to-day, said
that the board proposed to urge the prompt
payment of all funds on hand, and said the
State Committee, at its meeting next week,
would be asked to distribute the money as
quickly as possible.
A dispatch from Cincinnati says: "The
Chamber of Commerce Committee having
in charge the relief fnnd for the benefit ot
the Johnstown sufferers held a meeting yes
terday and closed up their business. There
was present of the committee: President
Thomas Morrison, Mayor John B. Moiby
and Frank "W. Buskirk. Mr. John R.
Morton, who has been the clerk of the com
mittee, reported a balance remaining on
hand of $5,016 14. A motion was then
made and nnanimously carried that the
subscription books be closed and that the
amount in bank to the credit of the fnnd be
placed subject to the order of Chairman Mc
Millan of the relief fund at Johnstown, and
Clerk Morton was directed to notity that
gentleman of the action of the Chamber of
Commerce Committee. The committee then
adjourned sine die. ,
A POSTOFFICE FIGHT.
Contest Among lbs Frople of Salem, O., far
rSIXCIAI. TELKJIULM TO TUB DISPXTCH.3
Salem, O., July 27. The location of the
postoffice is causing a great fight between
some of our extensive property owners.
Several years ago the postofnee was removed
from a building on East Main street, owned
by Ira P. Brainard, one of Pittsburg's
largest live stock dealers, to one of the
rooms in J. T. Brooks' block, on Broadway.
This angered the Main street people, but
their rage did not take tangible shape until
recently, when it was decided to build a
new Opera House some distance east of the
present center of business on East Main
street and rehabilitate the old American
Hotel adjacent. Some of the parties went
to "Washington to push the claims of the
last named place, and their proposition has
been accepted. The postofnee will be re
moved about November 1.
It is now stated that Mr. Brooks will
build a large first-class hotel on Broadway
to compete with Hotel Greiner Brainard,
also owned by the East Main street people,
and the one they are about to remodel. Mr.
Brooks is chief law counsel of the Pennsyl
vania Bailroad systems, and Is supposed to
be the largest property owner in Salem.
More Oil Fonnd In Anglnlze County.
"Wapakoneta, O., July 27. Ponr more
oil wells, located on the Naumberg, Harsh
bereer, Blackburn and Doering farms, near
Buckland, 4 miles northwest of Wapako
neta, have been drilled in, resulting in an
average output of over 300 barrels daily.
The first two have a capacity of over COO
barrels. "Wells were commenced to-day on
the Armenius Sillin, "William "Walker and
James Bowsley farms. These wells are in
the center of the active operations in the

MEDIA, July 27. Mary Williams, of
Bancroft's Lower Bank, known as "Qneen

Preston to-dav charged with profanity. She
was charged 65 cents an oath, and at this
rate her pro'anity bill amounted to over $10.
She didn't have that amount of change in
her pockets, and the 'Squire sent her to jail
to work It out.

Wrltn for the Election to Fill the Senatorial
Place to be lamed.
Media, July 27. There is no longer any
doubt about the election to fill Collector
Cooper's vacated seat in the Senate being
held this vear. and after all the discussion
in the county papers in regard to the matter
it remained for ex-Bepresentative John B.
Bobinson, one of tha Senatorial candidates,
to discover that a clause in article 2, section
2, of the Constitution governing vacancies,
makes it mandatory upon the presiding offi
cer of either house to issue writs for elec
tions to fill vacancies whenever they; occur.
Lieutenant Governor Davies attention was
called to the Constitution, and he has writ
ten a letter to Mr. Kobinson agreeing with
the latter that the constitutional clause is
mandatory, and that he win lsue me wr
at once, probable to-morrow. Senator Quay
and State Chairman Andrew also take the
same view ot the matter.
Candidate Kobinson, for some reason or
other, is better satisfied to have the election
come off this fall than to have it postponed
a year. He was in excellent spirits to-night
and talked freel v of his canvass. "Then- is
no longer any doubt," he said, "that the
election to fill the Senatorial vacancy will
be held this year, and from present indica
tor,, trip will be a far different result than
last year. This thing of a lew men in Media
claiming all the offices and running them in
turn to the exclusion of everybody else is
played out, and if I do not mistake the tem
perature of the political atmosphere, there
will be a Johnstown political deluge in this
county about September 4."

Continued Complaints "About tbe American
Exhibit at tbe Pari Exposition A
Soldier In Charge, bnt Not a
Veteran In the Business.
tSriCIAt. TELEGRAM TO TUX DISM.TCIM
Washington, July 27. Complaints
continue to come from different persons as
to tha representation of the United States
at the Paris Exhibition. A gentleman who
has knowledge or the manner In which our
display at Pans was organised, and also of
the distribution of the fund appropriated by
Congress for that purpose, has, this to say:
"The reports as to the character of the
United States display at Pa is are undoubt
edlv exaggerated, but there is a good founda
tion In truth for most of them. The primary
difficulty unquestionably lies in the fact that
General Franklin, who was chosen to be the
Commissioner General on the part of the
United States, did not have an adequate
conception ol what was required of him, and
did not accept advice from those who had
the proper knowledge of what ought to be
done. General Franklin, at the very be
ginning, had an order issued that no expen
ditures of any kind should be incurred
without his personal approval. He placed
all sorts of red tape regulations about the
preparation of the goods and the shipment
of them and the arrangement of them after
they arrived on the ground, just as he would
have done had he been conducting a mili
tary campaign. .
"He was parsimonious in some of his ex
nonilitnres where monev was most needed,
and he was too liberal in other directions
where the United States would not be so
much benefited. He selected, or, more
strictly speaking, consented to the appoint
ment of some very competent assistants, but
he so crippled them by bis directions and
restrictions that they were not able to do
what was expected of them, and, it is known
that some of them who are most experienced
in tie management of affairs of this sort
went to Paris thoroughly dispirited.
"It is known that one or two of the men
most prominent in Paris in connection with
our exhibition were inclined to withdraw
wholly from any connection with it when
they found that they were almost entirely
without any authority and were compejled
to submit to military red tape discipline.
These gentlemen would not, of course, make
any statement of this sort for publication so
long as they occupy their present official
relations, bnt they have said these things
privately, and undoubtedly would reiterate
them if offlclallv called upon by authorized
persons. That," unquestionably, is the rea
son for the just complaints which have been
made against our exhibit in Paris."
EVIDENCES OF A CRIME.
Suspicions Carriage Traeks.a Pool of Blood
and a Gag Fonnd Near a Hirer.
Latvbence, Mass., July 27. In an un
freqneuted lane, leading off the Haverhill
turnpike in Methune, four miles from this
city, early yesterday morning, were found
fresh wagon tracks, while Jour rods from,
the road, in the bushes, wasrffdiscovered a
pool of fresh human blood. A second blood
stain was seen near by and a trail of blood
drops led to the main road. Under a bash
was found a lady's handkerchief, which
bore teeth marks, had been badly cnewea
and had apparently been used as a gag,
1 a . 1 J. aHiiatps and nraatn
bore certain laundry marks, and was turned
over to the police, who are investigating.
Several persons have recently been attacked
near this spot while driving at night, and
no doubt a crime has been committed. The
spot where the blood trail ends is only a few
rods from the river. There could be no
legitimate errand to take a carriage where
the tracks were visible. People in the
vicinity are much excited.
