Edi'orial Correstwndene Scranton Tribune.
Hahrisbuko, Pa., May 22.
T WAS noon before tue belated
Scranton visitors to the state con
vention got out of storm-bound
Banbury, a special train having
bein'Becnred for them by arrangement
from Hurrisburg. Before leaving ban
bury tb party was reinforced by the
Wilkes-Barre continuant, which had
come oyer the Reck Glen cut-off from
OittitwIiM to Sonbnry, This train
ploughed through water three feet
d' ep and a man was required on the
pilot of the engine to clear a path
through the floating logs.
Among those who joined the original
party from this train ware Herbert L
Taylor and John J. David, of Hyde
Park; Representative Moore, of Brad
ford; James Thomat, County Treasurer
Reed and ex-Sheriff Robinson, of
Wiikts Barre; Representative Harvey,
of Shickahiuny; County Controller
Abenzjr Reese, Thos. Jones; Dr.
Brutidage, of Hazleton; Editor Jus. P.
Taylor, of Montrose; Dr. Walton, o(
StrouJsburg, and Representative W.
K. Breck, of the Third Lackawanna
district. On tho later trains tonight
came Delegates Alex A.Ikman,of Prov
idence; E B Harden bergh, of Wayne;
Col. W. J. Harvey, of Wiikes-Barre;
Representative Liughrey, of Luzerne;
Postmaster Howard Armstrong, of
Plymouth, and Justice Jaiuus R.Ebret,
of West Pittston.

Protheroe. Daniel Phillips, J. H. Wil
liams, Dr. W. A. Payne, Walter Briggs,
Rev. E. R. Lewis, W. J. Schubmehl,
and Robert Adams, comprised a party
of additional Scrantonians who ar
rived on a late train.
Tomorrow's convention will be not
abld more for the absence of storm
bound veterans than for any exciting
features. Governor Beaver will pres
ent General l isting's name and the
nomination will be seconded by Charles
Eiuory Smith. VValter Lyons' name
will be presented by Chris Magoe and
seconded by Genera! Frank Reader.
District Attorney Scbaefer, of Dela
mater, will do the oratorical honors for
Jack Robinson. District Attorney
Graham, of Philadelphia, will name
General Luttu for secretary of internal
affairs, an I the seconding speech will
bu made by Mj r Evorott Warren, of
Scranton Colonol Frank Ejhlcman, of
Berk?, will nominate ex-Senator Mylin
and tnere will be no opposition, Giles
D. Price, of Erie, having withdrawn
his name.
The other nomination speeches have
not been decided upon, but it u prob
able that the name of Mai r McDow
ell for congressman at large will not
be presented. Strong pressure has
le'n brought to bear on the Robinson
fores to secure a withdrawal of t!:e
Media congressman's candidacy. Bat
up to 10 o'clock he remained obdurate,
claiming sixty solid votes on as many
ballots as may ba taken.
Colonel Stewart's name, except in a
oomptlmetitary sense, will not be pre
sented. One of tho Robinson nrtifkes
was evidenced in the calling of a sac
ret caucus of delegates from the an
thracite eouolies for the purpose of
forming a permanent sectional union,
bnt this was rendered futile through
the refusal of delegates favorable to
Lyon to have part in the move.
eobinson's Fate sealed.
The fate of the Robinson candidacy
was sealed at 10 o'clock tonight, when
a canens of the Lyon foroes mustered
198 out of 264 delegates, insuring bis
nomination overwhelmingly on the first
ballot, Robinson declares be will fight
to the last and go down with colors
flying. General Wagner, of Philadel
phis, will be temporary chairman and
ex-Congressman Flood, of Erie, per
manent chairman. Lackawanna's rep
resentatlon on the state committee has
not yet been decided upon.
One ballot in each oase is expected
to nominate and the platform, it is de
clared, will make no concessions to the
free silver fallacy. L. S, R

Sad Scenes of Desolation In the Wake of the
Loss of Over $3,000,000 in Logs
and Lumber That Floated Down the
Susquehanna Easton Damaged
$20,000 - Crops Will Need to Be
Re-planted in Many Sections Gen
eral Notes tf the Flood.
Williamspout, Pa., May 22.
ILL1AMSPORT today emerged
from Unenforced isolation and
begun to calculate tbe damage
done by its immersion by the
tl ioci. The rain in this isection began
last Thursday morning, with frequent
heavy showers that have only ceased
this morning. The west branch rose
rapidly all day Sunday, and at 10
o'clock that night the water com
menced to flood the lower portion of
the city. At 4 o'clock yesterday after
noon the flood hud reached its height
here and registered thirty-two feet
above low watsr mark, and two feet
lees than on Jnne 1, 1880.
The flood is now gradually receding,
but iu the business section of the town
there is yet twenty-seven feet of water.
Williamsport and tbe entire West
Brunch valley presents a sorry sight in
deed. The people prepared for the
worst all day Sunday, so the losses in
many instances will not be so great as
five years ago. A careful estimate of
the financial losi for Williamsport and
Lvconiing county at this lime is $10,
000,000. This city sustained its greatest loss
in tbe wreck of the Snsquebanna boom
and the loss of 175,000,000 feet of logs
held in it. At 1 o'clock yesterday af
ternoon the boom burst and the logs
went floating down the river. These
logs in their rough condition were
worth on an averuue of teu dollars per
thousand feet. Manufactured here
they would have been worth twice that
sum. In consequence the loss to the
lumbermen alone will foot up over $3,
000,000. Added to this tho loss occas
sioued by wrecked bridges, tbe Btock of
merchandise, household effects, dam
ages to crop, etc., will easily bring tbe
damage up to $10,000,000.
A number of drowning accidents
have beou reported, but as yet these
rumors bavo not been, confirmed. The
Market street bridge went out at 11
o'clock yesterday morning and tbe
Maynard street bridge followed at S
o'clock in the afternoon. These
bridges were of iron and were replaced
after the 1889 flood, each costing about
$70,000 One. small span of tbe Penn
sylvania railroad bridge at its eastern
end in Montgomery was damaged,
while the double track Iron bridge of
the Reading railroad and the new
county iron bridgo at Money uro a to
tal loss. Ine bridge of the Reading
company cost $150,000 nod has been in
use a little over lour years.
The Pennsylvania railroad bridge at
tho eastern end of this city, and their
Linden bridge wore loaded down with
coal cars and bravely withstood the
great slraiu to wnich they were sub
jected. Hi two iron bridges here col
lapsed. All the bridges on the North
eru Central rnilway between here and
Elmiru, as well as the roudwav, are re
ported all right.
By reason of the hich wator the
plants of the two electrio light com
panies ana ine gas comnany were
drowned ont yesterday and the city
was in total daruness. lho lower por
tion of tbe city is without water by
reason of tbe mains of the city watpr
works having broken. The lower or
business Dortion of the city presents a
sail sp' ctaci ino main streets are
full or floating logs, board
walks, wreckage an 'debbris of
all descriptions. Steam and row boats
nnd even piecss of boards are
used in tbe main thoroughfares in go
ing from place to place. Thousands of
persons fled for sifetv and shelter to
higher grounds. These refugees have
been very kindly cared for and the
people of Williamsport are doing
everything in their power to help them
selves in their present doplorable ca
lamity. No newspapers were issued from any
of the oflic'-B here yesterday, us tbe
plants of all were drowns-1 oui,
Tbe total losses here, s estimated by
conservative insn, are $3,000 000. This
includes $1,500,000 in log, $250,000 on
sawed lumber and the balance on prop
erty throughout the city. The boom
held 170,000,000 feet of logs.
Eatton Is Catnngsd to the Extant of
Eapton, Ph., May 21 Tho flood at
this place is subsiding. Tbe Labigb
and Delaware rivors have fallen con
siderably last night and this morning.
Tbe damage done is large, especially to
the Lehigh Coal and Navigation oom
pany, whose large basin gave way last
evening. At first the duuiago was
placed at $10,000, but it will now ex
coed $20,000.
A coffer dam will have to be con
structed before the basin can be re
built. This will serve to supply tbe
Delaware division canal with water
and will enable boats to pass at this
point. It twill require ut least three
months' work before transportation to
New York and Philadelphia via the
Morris and Delaware division canals
can be resumed.
B dlofonts Is Isolatsd as In 1889 Dsath
from Exposure.
BkllefonTe, Pa., May 28. The wa
tsrs here are going down slowly, bat
Bellefonte Is as much isolated as it
was In 1889. Of tbe five railroads pass
ing through tbe town and esatering
Bert the only train servlea available Is
the local from Tyrone. There has
been no through service east or west,
nor is there likely to be for several
days, owing to washouts and missing
bridges. Tbe damage done through
out tbe farming distrloa of this nor
tion of the county alone will foot up
fully $100,000.
'1 he only fatality recorded here was
the death from exposure of a onild of
Daniel Delaney, which was lost in tbe
storm. The water in the west branch
from t 'leai field was at it highest point
list night. All through the vllv the
water was higher than in 1889, al

section last Thursday nigbt, continu
ing until this morning. In up the
river districts tbe rain was much
heavier than here, and all the streams
overflowed their banks. At Clearfield
the flood was only four feet below the
high water mark of 1889. Before the
water reached Its height, the booms ut
