would be presented in the appearance of the
city, as compared with the condition of af
fairs when the raging waters of the Cone
maugh had reluctantly withdrawn them
selves from a scene of devastation unpar
alleled in the history of this country. This
idea had been measurably strengthened by
the extremely favorable reports made in in
terviews with reporters of this paper by
members of the Pittsburg committee, and
also by Governor Beaver's commission.
It is not overstating the case to say that
the current impression among the thousands
of Pittsburgers who personally viewed the
Johnstown ruins during the ten days nr two
weeks succeeding the flood is that Johns
RISEN FROM ITS RUINS.
It will be granted as a matter of course
that the roseate views of those who have
been in Johnstown day in and day out since

the flood, and have seen the small improve
ments gradually rising, and the horrors of
the situation gradually diminishing, have
some foundation in fact But when one who
has carried a mental photograph of that
awful scene of ruin for two months, sud
denly returns and steps from the train to the
side of the Pennsylvania depot, where at one
glance what remains of the city can be seen,
the sensation is one of great surprise, and
recalls most forcibly Treasurer Thompson's
remark, quoted in these columns, that
"$10,000,000 would not restore the city.
ALMOST A SHOCK.
The impression was almost painful, almost
a shock. In every direction stretch the
same broad acres of debris that met the eye
in the first days after the flood. It is uni
versally admitted that the scene as a whole
baffled description, and, it cannot be said
that the contrast is so marked as to render
easier the task of word-painting the scene.
To be sure, the vista of devastation is
dotted by new roofs here and there. But so
few and far between are these evidences of
rebuilding industry that the isolation is ter
ribly overwhelming. In general terms, the
traces of the work of man are still grimly
overshadowed by the footprints of the storm.
Here and there can be seen a narrow ribbon
of fair ground running through the dr-ary
waste of debris. These are the streets which
have all been opened by the contractors.
But the territory they inclose is seemingly

Several weeks.since, when General Hast

is on record as having said that the town
site was cleaned up; that all the cellars had
been uncovered, and that the inhabitants

at the time, but it must be acknowledged
that it had only a slight foundation in fact,
for whole square blocks by the dozen yet
remain covered from three to ten feet deep
with every variety of rubbish. Or it is
barely possible that acres of Johnstown's
business and dwelling honses were built
without cellars. In short, it is a reasonably
safe conclusion that a square half mile of
the heart of Johnstown has not even been
disturbed by those in charge of the business
of clearing up the wreck.
But it mast be conceded that in clearing

has been removed. The streets caught the
bulk of the floating debris, both from the
original onset of the flood and the subse
quent backwater from the stone bridge,
for the simple reason that the rushing
waters took the streets, especially those lined
with substantial brick stores, as a natural
waterway offering no obstruction to the cur
rent. Main street was thus jammed with
debris, as were a few other steeets. But
those thoroughfares closer to the direct cur
rent of the flood were obliterated, being cov
ered by sand, bricks and earth, to the depth
of from three to five feet The task of re-
storing these streets was sot as formidable
as if all had been piled nigh with wreckage

A BIBDSETE VIEW.
Crossing the Conemaugh on the rude
wagon bridge which offers the only means of
ingress or egress from the Pennsylvania
depot, a few hundred feet brings one to
Washington street, which parallels the
Cambria offices, the company stores and the
Baltimore and Ohio depot. From the bridge
to the street both sides of the way are lined
with shanties, from which every sort of arti
cle is hawked. Washington street rejoiced
in 23 saloons before the flood, and has now-
WSS5rs sliS; JSS
the proud distinction of possessing a series
of buildings, each of which is a saloon..
Passing the Cambria offices it is noted
with surprise that very little work has been
done in fixing up those buildings. The
mass of debris which crushed in one side of
the company stores of Morell & Co. has been
partially removed, and the foundations lay
bare awaiting rebuilding.
SCENES OF CBEAT BUIN.
There is no further point of interest until
the Baltimore and Ohio depot is reached.
On the Conemaugh side of "Washington
street some railroad tracks have been laid as
sidings. Otherwise this vast expanse, from
the wagon bridge up toward Conemaugh as
far as the eye can reach, remains untouched,
just as it was after the flood. There is a
small cluster of new bouses in the rear of
the Baltimore and Ohio depot, and a fer

must have been fully 300 houses lying there
This state of affairs called for some in
aulry. The master carpenter of the Johns
town commission, whose office stantls'upoa-
the opposite corner to the Baltimore and
Ohio depot, informed the reporter that 127
of the houses had been erected up to date.
"Oh! all around. On the hillsides."
"How many are lying on the ground?"
"Oh, I couldn't say just how many. The
boomer houses aren't very popular."
BETTER THAN TnE BOOMERS.
A very intelligent young man who came
along volunteered some information. The
"boomer houses," either large or small, only
contained one room. When first brought to
Johnstown the large honses were sold to
citizens at $250 and the small at $100, but
when they proved a drug in the market, the
price fell to 5150 and $90. Had any been
given away? Not that he knew of. Any
one who wanted a "boomer house" had to
pay for it out of the
amount allowed by
the Governor's Com
mission. This young man
pointed to a rather' J
nice looking two-story
building of wood near
by, and said that it
was a sample of the
kind of house that

he had no doubt that the "boomer houses"
would rot before ther were used. He

( So, after a glance at the capital going to
waste the reporter moved on. It may be
stated tent no subsequent investigation
brought to light anything like "127" of the
"boomer houses." Bight adjoining theBal

Cleveland, July 28. Jim Garfield, as
the late President used to call his favorite
son, James B. Garfield, is in training for
politics, and his alliance with Miss Helen
Newell, of Chicago, daughter of President
John Newell, of the Lake Shore road, will
not handicap him on any side.
Jim is the brainiest of the boys General
Garfield left behind him, and resembles
the early pictures of his father very strik

scholar, a fair orator, and is developing into

I ' -WHEN JIM WAS A BOY. 4
About 20 years ago President Gerfield,,
then Representative of the old Nineteenth
district in Congress, resided in Hiram, and
on the adjournment of Congress used to
return there with his family. Jim and
Hal, the two young lawyers, were
then small boys. Jim was about
as mischievous as boys ever
are, almost the exact counterpart In this re
spect of what his father had been'atthe
same age. Hal, or Harry, as he has since
been called, was of a decidedly sedate
nature and easily believed almost anything
which his younger brother would tell him.
Young James K. Garfield has never lost
his residence in the old Nineteeni-h district
He lives with his mother at the homestead
in Mentor, and goes back and forth every
day on the train. He is beginning to take
some interest in politics down there, and it
will be very strange, if he continues to re
side there, if he is not sooner or later sent to
Congress. Hon. Ezra B. Taylor, who now
represents the district, is quite well along in
years. He succeeded General Garfield in
1881, and was eleeted last fall for the fifth
A PROMINENT DISTRICT.
The Nineteenth district takes pride in re
turning the same mau over and over, and in
this way has always been prominent in the
councils of the nation. It has only had five
Bepublicans since its organization as a dis
trict, viz: Elisha 'Whittlesey, Joshua B.
Giddings, John Hutchins, James A. Gar
field and Ezra B. Taylor.
It is quite probable that the future career
of young James Garfield may lie in the
same line as that of his father. The alliance
he is about to make will be a strong one
socially, politically and in a business way.

Kangley, near this city, last night has
caused forebodings of further trouble. It
was the Kangley miners who, at the time
of the trouble at No. 3 shalt here a
few weeks ago, marched in solid phalanx,
100 strong, and defied the sheriffs of
two counties and 50 deputies, and unon dif
ferent occasions since that time the Kangley
men have been out, bent on mischief. Sat
urday night, headed by 150 women, the
whole mining population ol the town, aside
from the families of the 40 or 50 men at
work, marched to the shaft of the Star Coal
Company, and with muskets loaded with
buckshot and salt, and with revolvers, clubs
and stones, defied the miners from below to
come to the mouth of the pit
Then three men climbed up the ladders,
but they were roughly handled, and the
others were afraid to come. up. For more
than two hours the mob held full sway, and
but for the fact that a blinding storm came
up, the rain falling and the liehtning flash

miners might have suffered a hard fate.
Deputy Sheriff Hugh Hall, who went from
this city to disperse the mob, could do
nothing to quell the excitement, and
but for the storm the worst mizht have

thing that may come up, but the strikers

Bismarck, N. D., July 28. The re
fusal of Hon. John Miller to allow his name
to' be used in connection with the Governor
ship has changed the political calculations
of the various party leaders. Miller has
been looked to by everybody as a compro
mise candidate between Allen and Pancher.
The best Bepnblicans have felt that the
nomination would be a happy termination
of convention difficulties.
General Allen's chief danger arises from
the avowed determination of the alliance to
secure the nomination of farmers for Gov
ernor and Lieutenant Governor. It is sup
posed that F. B. Fancher, President of the
Constitutional Convention, will receive the
support of most of the alliance delegates in
the State convention. The farmers are not
opposed to General Allen except as his can
didacy interferes "with the plans above

Fancher and Allen, which adds spice to the
political game without endangering the in

arrests. The police had orders to re-arrest
all who attempted to keep open, but there
were not more than 30 cases of this kind.
By far the greater part ol the saloons

suburbs there was comparatively little

The saloonist Eichler, who has made
himself famous by his vigorous resistance
of the Owen law, kept his saloon open, sell

Druggists, however, were not permitted to
sell soda water, lemonade or cigars.
Over the Bbine two or three-riots took

About a dozen policemen kept the crowd

On the corner of Walnut and Twelfth

They were suspected of being spies and the

by being rescued by the police.
Throughout the city the work of the

however, are hed in reserve At the various

or not is becoming one of universal
interest People arc taking one side or the

BEADY FOB ARREST.
All the saloon keepers who were arrested
gave bail for their appearance. There was
a pre-arrangement by those saloon keepers
who had agreed to remain open to-day, so
that those who were arrested had no
trouble in getting bail. At the Bremen
street police station, which is in the center
of the Over-thc-Khine district, a crowd of
from 200 to 300 hung about all day, and
after the arrest at Vine and Fifteenth streets
their number increased to fully 1,500 per

at his headquarters till midnight The Po

The number in favor of Sunday closing
are constantly increasing, and the riotous
proceedings of to-day have made many ac
cessions to the law-abiding class. The major
ity of the saloon keepers openly favor not
only the enforcement of the law to-day. but
are also in favor of Sunday closing. Mem

expressing their disgust with the faction

the penalty only nominal. Last Sunday

which was intended to be very severe. It
fixes the penalty at revocation of the license
and a fine of any amount not exceeding $500.
The Judge of the Circuit Court is the
only authority who can revoke a license
under that law, andfenother State law makes
it necessary that all cases where the prisoner
has been arrested by tbe municipal police
be taken 'to the City Police Judge, who,
that he might have jurisdiction over State
cases, was made justice of the peace ex
officio. But the Police Judge Boland can
not take away a licence uniler the Down
ing law, and he saw fit to place the
fines as low as $1 and costs. Tbe Police,
Commissioners were at a loss to know what'
to do alter they had found three laws inef
fective, until they stumbled upon a city or
dinance which is exactly like the Downing
law, with the exception that it gives the Po
lice Judge the power and makes it obligatory
upon him to revoke the license where the
accused Is lound guilty.
Word was given out last night that ar
rests would be made to-day under the lat
ter crdinance. The severe penalty prescribed
in the ordinance hadits effect and there were
but few cared to take the chances of being
obliged to suffer it The down town saloons
were all closed. In the outlying precincts
the police found seven who disregarded tbe
law and arrested them. The parks and re
sorts just out of the city limits did a thriv
ing business. Ther were about the only
places where any beverage could be bought I
more stimulating than temperance drinks,
and it was there that thousands went to in
dulge their appetites.

Chelsea,Mass., July 28. Ayearago G.
W. White, a jeweler in this city, indulged
in a little "mashing," just for fun, and the
result has been two of the worst thrashings
he has ever had. His "mash" was the
pretty daughter of Edgar W. Wyman. She
told her father of White's attention, and
the irate parent gave the masher a severe
flogging. That was a year ago. To-day
White swore out a warrant for Mr. Wy
man's arrest on account of that old assault
and the papers were served, Mr. Wyman
being immediately released on bail.
But White's triumph was short lived.
During the year Miss Wyman married
George Foils, and when the latter heard of
bis father-in-law's arrest and all the circum
stances in the case, he hunted out the man
who tried to mash his prospective bride, and
settled the old score by giving him auother
thrashing. He, too, was arrested, and

down the south branch from the Santa Fo
elevators about 10 o'clock last night It was
heavily grain laden, and the rapid current
rendered1 it unmanageable. At Twenty

road bridge was open and the
steam barge in the west draw was unload
ing coal. Two tugs endeavored to get -the
propeller through the east draw, but the
current swung the big boat around until her
stern was grinding against the dock on one
side of the river and her nose was poking the
bridge abutment on the other. There she '
stuck crosswise of the river, her side resting
against the bridge piling. The water,
dammed by the steamer, was at least two feet
deeper above the boat than below it The
Boston remained in that position until
5 o'clock this afternoon, when she was
