THE collections of internal revenue
during the first eleven months of the fis
cal year ending June 30, 1889, were y130,-
088,908, being $5,934,308 more than the
collections during the corresponding
period of the last fiscal year.
That's the question of the hour, with
reference to an immediate distribution of
funds now on deposit in banks that weie
raised for the relief of our suffering peo
ple. One dollar would be of more use
now than five in three months from this
time. This opinion is shared in by all
persons wc have spoken to. Four geutle
men from dilfereut parts of the Btate
representative men who paid our office the
honor of a visit yesterday, were emphatic
in their condemnation of the policy of
keeping the money another day from
those for whom it was contributed ; and
said Governor Beaver ought to attend to
it at once. The four persons were officers
of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania I. O.

Moore and Freeman.
MB. GLADSTONE, now in his eightieth

"We congratulate our unfortunate
friend, L. D. Woodruff, Esq., of Johns
town, upon the re appearance of his val
ued newspaper, the DEMOCRAT. Its first
issue since the flood came to the surface,
as it were, on Friday last. Of the plucky
editor's trials and hnidsliips his paper
speaks in tones of touching pathos and
sadness, though untiuged with a single in
dication of despair or despondency.

coal trust, the announcement of the forma
tion of an ice trust, and the storj' about a

which have come to the front within a
week—the New York Pre** sensibly ad
vises that " whenever you see a trust
head, hit it! " The trust business is get
ting monotonous, and one of these tine
mornings the people will rise in their
might and effectually squelch them, as
they ought to.

Somerset Democrat.
We gladly welcome the JOHNSTOWN
DEMOCRAT, which after a month's suspen
sion forced upoh it by the deluge of May
31, has come to the front again and will
hereafter be regularly published. The
first Dumber issued siuce the flood was
the WEEKI.Y DEMOCRAT of July 5 and it
contains many sad but interesting ac
counts of that black Friday, when the
city of Johnstown, the pride of the Cone
maugh valley, was almost wiped out. Mr.
Woodruff, the publisher and editor,
deserves the earnest and hearty support of
the public, as he was one of the heaviest
losers by the flood. The publication of
the DAILY DEMOCRAT was also resumed on
Mncn is said from time to time about
the fast rate at which Americans live.
Pessimists are never weary of quoting sta
tistics to prove that the English race in
America is coming to a speedy and igno
ble end. But figures, as compiled by
medical societies and insurance compan
ies leave room for encouragement to the
people of the United States. The aver
age length of life in Russia is 28 years,
in France 455, in Euglaud 50, and in the
United States 55. Or, at least, these are
the figures quoted before a late meeting
of the State Medical Society of Georgia.

The Johnstown DEMOCRAT found its
way to Somerset Mouday morning, Its
first appearance since the flood. The
DEMOCRAT office muuaged to escape total
destruction, hut it was badly wrecked,
and brother Woodruff has had a hard
time getting on his feet Again. Nothing
in the world is as easily disarranged as a
printing office, and nothing as hard to get
into its normal condition. The DEMOCRAT
has surmounted all obstacles, and is
again to the front, as bright and as newsy
as of yore. Dr. Endsley, of Somerset, is
assisting Mr. Woodruff in editing his
After all is summed up and balances
struck, it will be found that all loses in
other directions are mere atoms in com
parison with the destruction of human
life. The town as it now is contrasts sadly
enough with what it once was in every
respect; but in no other particular is the
contrast so sad, so mournful, so over
whelmingly touching as it is in reference
to men, women and children.
Strangers coming here see on every
hand ocular demonstrations of material
losses, in the destruction of property. In
viewing our waste places, our barren
streets, and acres covered with wrecked
matter they need no one to tell them of
the losses of buildings—of the millions
thus represented that have been swept
away. And impressed with what they
see, but little, if any, thought is given to
the thousands that were buried in the ruins
or swept down in the angry water, of the
vast number whose lives went out with
the Hood. And even those who survive, do
not yet realize the irreparable loss the town
has sustained by the drowning of some of
its noblest citizens. The fact is the ex
citement, the worry, the anxiety, the work
of living, of keeping alive after such peril
ous adventures in and escapes out, of the
flood, have left but little time or opportu
nity for thinking about the dead.
Many of them who were carried or
hauled in a wagon to the cemetery,and ac
companied by only two or three friends
hastily deposited in the grave, would
have had large funerals had they died un
der ordinary circumstances. The tinding
of each mutilated body and its burial,
were dismissed from the "public mind
with a simple remark, " well, that makes
o many to-day."
This is by far the most sorrowful fea
ture of the awful things connected with,
and consequent upon, the town's de

we will slowly awake to the fact that the
community has suffered far beyond what
we even now think, in the death of so
many of our best men.
In business quarters, the list is a de
plorably long one, as follows: John

J ttDOB MASTERS, who took time by the

o'clock Friday forenoon. He says when
the official notice came at 2:30 o'clock
that the dam would break, lie felt that
was the time for him to fly to safety, and
acted accordingly. He further says that
he warned all he came in contact with,
some of whom denounced the statement
asa"d d lie," invented to scare the
people. Before goiug to the hill lie went
up Railroad street as far as the Gautier
Works and gave the warning.
Do NOT, in this warm weather, convqj-t
the stomach mto a refrigerator for the
whole system and endeavor to reduce the
temperature of the body to a comfortable
point by swallowing quantities of ice
water at short intervals. The evil effects
of ice-water are well known. When taken
at meals the sense of taste is impaired.
The indigestion, to say nothing of more
serious troubles, which arises from the
free use of ice-water, would entitle it to
be set aside. Water at fifty degrees is
co'd enough for drinking purposes.
Drinking very cold water, like drinking
very hot beverages, is a habit to be
avoided. The extremes in this matter, as
in most other cases, are dangerous.
An Excellent Paper.
Westmoreland Democrat.
The first issue of the Johnstown DEMO
CRAT, since the terrible flood, appeared on
Friday last. The office of the DEMOCRAT
was badly wrecked by the relentless
waters. Brother Woodruff has our sym
pathy in his misfortune and best wishes
for success in his plucky efforts to again
come up smiling. We hope that a long
period of prosperity will attend his lubors
byway of reimbursing him for his heavy
reverses. The DEMOCRAT has always been
an excellent paper and we are confident
that it will soon be itself again.
It* Velocity, It* Appearance, "<l the Ml*rhty
Gnat or Wind That Preceded It.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
The velocity of the wave is an interest
ing subject of inquiry. The information
upon this point is in some respects puz
zling. Young Parke, the engineer of the
South Fork Lake, stood by the dam and
saw the water go over the crest and eat
out the lower side of it. He says the
water commenced running over at 1
o'clock in the afternoon, and that the dam
gave way at 8 o'clock, having sustained
this wearing-away process for two hours.
The clocks in Johnstown show that the
water reached there at 4-07. The wave
then was an hour in traversing the twelve
or fourteen miles of narrow valley to the
place where il did its greatest destruction.
The fall in that distance is about 560 feet.
The velocity varied. It was uot so rapid
in the upper part of the valley. The
people at South Fork, the first settlement
in the way, escaped without exception.
The losses of life were comparatively
small at Mineral Point and atConemaugh,
but when the wave readied the latter
place its velocity was tremendous. From
there to Johnstown the wave had a
straight course, and it moved with a
speed which can only be estimated by
comparsion. The whistles of the engines
gave the alarm. The people looked up
the valley, saw a black mass coming
straight toward them, and tried to run
up stairs. The water entered the houses
and mounted the stairs almost as fast as
the people did. At least that is what
many claim as their experiences.
The railroad men who saw the wave
from the tops of cars and from the hills
at various points gives the movement the
character of a succession of checks and
rushes. They say that the vast load of
trees, houses, earth, and other wreckage
which the wave carried with it caused a
temporary dam to form a dozen times on
the way down. Coming to a place where
the valley suddeuly narrowed the mass of
timbers and trees would be crowded and
would s'ow up. Behind the dam the
waters would back up until the pressure
would become too much, and then the
mass would go out with a great rush.
Foreman Kelly, of the Pennsylvania road,
said one of these temporary checks oc
curred near Conemaugh. The water was
thrown back aud the spray dashed forty
feet high. The whole suriaceback of the
moving dam surged and boiled. But the
cheek was only foPafcw moments. Then
the mass let go and moved straight down
the valley, striking Johnstown squarely
in the centre, crossing through the heart
of the city aud plunging over Stonycreek
and into the South Side before its impetus
was again checked. ForemanKelly thought
the centre of the wave was at least fif
teen teet higher than the outer edges.
This scries of checks of the wave on the
route down is the only thing which will
account for the length of time occupied
in the passage from the dam to Johnstown.
The speed was much greater than four
teen miles an hour while the wave was
moving. If there had been no holding
up, the route would have been traversed
in half the time it was, but the force
could have been hardly more destructive.
William Davis,the agent at Conemaugh,
observed what others noted, the rolling
and boiling and grinding movement. The
water was carrying a great load, but the
logs and other objects were being continu
ally tossed above the surface as if the
mass was full of life. '
Another phenomenon which many saw
was the wind just ahead of the wave.
That wind, Foreman Kelly said, actually
moved houses from their foundations be
fore the wave reached them. This ex
plains in somo degree the declarations of
one class of eye witnesses who saw the
wave go by while in its greatest velocity.
These insist that there did not seem to be
any water in the front of the wave. The
front, according to their description, was
a rolling collection of trees, rocks,houses,
timbers, cars, earth, grass, i.nd every
thing else moving down the valley, with
a great lake pushing behind it. Of such
appearance was the front of the wave,
they say, until the valley widened at
Woodvale, and there the water came for
ward and mingled with this moving dam,
and the whole mass, without any regard
to the river's channel, plunged through
Johnstown—at the same time a hurricane,
an avalanche, and a llood, witli all the de
structive powers of each.

flve Children and Sunday School

Nearly 300 Badly Injured.
The pictures herewith arc from photo
graphs showing views of tho wreckage
after one of the most shocking dlsastors
that have evor taken place on any rail
way in the United Kingdom, causing sev
enty-five deaths and injuries to more than
a hundred and sixty other persons,
mostly children and young men or young
women, on Wednesday, June 12, near the
town of Armagh, in the north of Ireland.
A holiday excursion had been arranged
by the pastor and teachers oonnocted with
tho Sunday school and Methodist church,
Armagh. The place ohosen was Warren-
point, a favorite watering place on Car
lingford bay. The excursionists were
mainly children of both sexes, ranging in
age from 7 to 10 years, accompanied by
their teachers and a large number of
grown-up friends. Tho party numbered
In the aggregate about 1,200.
The Great Northern Eallwav company
set apart for their aooommoaation two
special trains, the first of which consisted
of thirteen carriages and two vans, with
M 0 passengers, drawn by a single engine;
It was in charge of Joseph Elliott, clerk
in the traffic manager's office at Armagh;
William Moorhead, assistant guard;
Thomas Magrath, engine-drivor; and
Henry Parkinson, fireman.
Two miles from Armagh there is a steep
Incline, on an embankment, near Kil
iooney; and doubts wore felt, beforo
starting, whether one engine could draw
so many carriages up tho incline. The
driver, Magrath, when the station-mas
ter thou offered to sond on a second en
gine to assist him, is reportod to have
said he thought his engine could do it;
tho conductor, apparently, was unwil
ling to have the tTaiu delayed. It was
closely followed by tho ordinary passen
ger train, lenving Armagh at 10:20, its
usual time.
Both trains moved on, but the second
train was stopped at Anuaclaro bridge,
having, it Is said, gained somewhat upon
the excursion train. The lattor had got
□ear tire top of th© Inolino when the
couplings about the oeutor of the train
were, by some means, unfastened, and
the hind part, consisting of seven car
riages, all crummed with people, began
to run backwards towards Anflaclare
bridgo. The descending carriages ac
quired a tremendous momentum, and
dashed into the standing train with an
awful crash. Some carriages were tele
scoped completely; others wore smashed
to splinters, one or two mounted to the
top of the heap of wreck almost intact.
The ombankmeut at thp point whore the
collision took place la from 00 feet to 70
feet high; some fragments of the car
riages and a few of the bodies were
thrown down its sldo to a considerable
distance. The bulk of the wreck and
nine-tenths of the unhuppy victims were,
however, to be found within a limited
area. Most of the people in the last two
carriages woro killed outright. Four
persons—two men ahd two young girls—
were dug out from boneath the over
turned engine, which was twisted and
battered in an extraordinary manner.
There were few men among the excur
sionists; some of the railway officials at
tached to the trains were themselves
injured ; great panic and confusion pre
vailed. Many of the children rushed
about screaming, wild with terror. Some
of the toachors, however, soon recovered
their presence of mind. Help arrived
from Armagh and other stations; the
work of extricating the dead, the dying
and the injured was begun in earnest.
Ttds work was difficult, and not unat
tended with danger; huge pieces of
timber and iron wore poised in such a
manner that their removal had to be ef
fected with great care lost they should
fail and crush those who lay boneath.
The dead were at first laid out In rows
near the scene of the disaster; many of
them wore so dreadfully crushed as to be
almost unrecognizable. Tho wounded
who could bear removal were taken to
Armagh after such hurried assistunco as
could be given them on the spot. They
received the devoted and skillful atten
tion of physicians and surgeons who has
tened to tiio town from places as far dis
tant as B I fast and NeWry at the llrst in
timation that their services would bo
useful. I-aou' in the day 'he dead were
brought iu'o Armagh, and placed in the.
mnrket-hou • and the Tontine. One of
those killed is Mr. Samuel Steel, magis
trates clerk of the Armagh pettv ses
sions. The queen has sent a urns-age of
sympathy a. id compassion to the mayor
of Armagh.
It is stated by several witnesses at the
cosrmer's inquest, and at the official in
quiry opened by Maj.-Gen. Hutchinson,
Board of Trade inspector, that Mr.
Elliott, tho traffic conductor in ohargeof
the train, ordered Moorhoad, the guard,
to uncouple the carriages and detach tho
hind part, when the train could not
move; and that ho persisted iu having
this done, in spite of Moorhead's objec
tions, and of the romonstrancos of ono
or two passengers.
When the detached carriages began to
run backwards down tho incline, Elliott,
who was on the line, told the men to put
on the brake, and to put stones under
the wheels; but this was not sufficient
to stop the carriages, whioh ran down a
gradient of one in seventy-five, a distance
of a mile and a half.—London Mews.
