ECHOES FIIOM THE FLOOD.
Sad Stories From Survivors of tho Fatal
Mrs. Mary Overbeck tells a sad story.
At 7 o'clock in the morning of Friday, the
31st of May, the overflow of water from
the river began to rush into the cellar of
her house ; but neither she nor her hus
band anticipated danger at that time, and
lie started out as usual for his place of
work. Finding the streets badly flooded,
lie procured a raft and returned to take
his wife to a place of safety. Before he
reached his dwelling, however, its
occupauts were removed to the residence
of Mr. McMillon near by, and Mr. Over
beck went himself to the Club House across
the street from Mr. McMillen's house. The
water continued to rise through the day,
and the heavy rain obscured the' view
between tire two houses. Mr. Overbeck
called out at intervals to his wife, checriDg
her and telling her that he would join
her in the morning.' Finally at 4in the
afternoon the tidal wave from the reser
voir swept down the street, carrying
houses, trees, and dead bodies with it, and
Mrs. "Overbeck beheld with terror the
porch of the Club House across the street
fall. Mr. McMillen had taken thirty-two
people into his house, which was a large,
firm building, and when the rush of water
came ho took them all up to the top story,
where they remained until late Saturday
morning with nothing to eat save a single
loaf of bread.
" Early Saturday morning," continued
Mrs. Overbeck, '• I looked across the
street and saw a hand protruding from a
mass of debris near the Club House. I beg
ged some of the gentlemen to go and see
if they could find my husband. They did so
and my dead husband's body was brought
across and placed in the upper hallway of
Mr. McMillen's house." Such was the ex
citement and confusion at this time that
Mrs. Overbeck could not get to her hus
band's side, and she was carried to a
place of safety without ever seeing him
again, his body having been among those
of the first to he buried by the relief par
ties. As Mrs. Overbeck tells her pitiful
story, there is a strange look of sadness,
and she cannot repeat what she has suf
fered without marked signs of emotion.
THEY SAVED TWENTY-SIX PERSONS.
Mrs. Emma Robb, stepmother of Mrs.
Overbcck, another of the survivors, lived
at the corner of Morris and Willow streets,
South Side. She is a widow, and with
her only daughter she fled to the upper
story of her house, taking some provisions
with her. Both before aud after the great
tidal wave struck the house mother and
daughter worked heroically to save the
terror-stricken and half-drowned unfortu
nates who floated past their windows.
They succeeded in saving the lives of
twenty-six persons, and early Saturday
morning the whole party was carried on
a raft to the upper part of Kernville.
Held liy a Corp.se.
Rev. Pr. Trautwein, of Cambria City,
visited Rev. E. M. McKeever, of Latrobe,
recently, says the Advance, and related
the following incident of the flood which
had not been printed heretofore : He
was standing on the bridge on that aw
ful Saturday succeeding the tfood and
witnessed the attempt of workmen to re
move a Miss Clark from the wreck, they
had removed the debris from lier head
and body as far as exposed, but still she
could not be liberated. The flames were
approaching, and Father Trautwein ad
ministered the sacrament of the church
to the poor unfortunate, who believed
that she must certainly perish. In
desperation one man dived beneath the
water and endeavored to free her, when
he found her one heel held in a vice like
grip by a human hand. The muscles
were set in death and it seemed that the
unfortunate girl could not be freed from
their awful clasp. An ax was procured
and the hand severed from the arm, when
Miss Clark was taken out. Both her legs
were broken, but she was taken to the
Hospital and is getting along nicely. The
men then -went to work aud finally suc
ceeded in getting out the body to which
the hand belonged. Strange to relate, it
was that of Miss Clark's grandfather, and
it was-his hand that had almost dragged
her to an awful death.

sent the money to Dr. W. W. Walters in

KILL*® AT HHBRIOAN.
By Being: Kun Over by a Freight Train
Tuesday afternoon about 3(30 o'clock
persons standing on the platform at Sheri
dan Station were horrifled to see the re
mains of a man on the track immediately
after a freight train hud passed eastward.
As there was no one in sight when the
train came along, he either fell or jumped
from the train aud was drawn under
tho wheels. The remains were horribly
mutilated, but were gathered together as
best they could and put on the mail train,
arriving here at 4:11. They were taken
to the Millville Morgue where they were
coffined, and, if they are not identified,
will be buried with the flood victims. The
party killed was a man about 85 years
of age. and weighed about 140 pounds.
He had on working clothes and a small
miner's lamp was picked up where he
was found. There were no papers by
which he could be identified, hut his
right arm was tattooed with ordinary ink
with the letters "J. B." and on the
right arm was a small dagger. His hair was
dark-brown and he wore a rather heavy
moustasche. It is possible he may have
been a brakeman, hut it is hardly likely.

A SwlniHlni- Scheme Detected.
A lot of loafers around town had con
cocted a very neat scheme to swindle Con
tractors McLain & Co., which was nipped
in the bud yesterday. They would go to
work for a half a day or so, and after get
ting a cheek on the boarding-house would
only show up at meal time. In this way
some of them got several weeks' free
board, but they will more than likely have
to earn it double now, as information, un
der the boarding-house act was made
against them yesterday, aud they may
have to work their fine out on the streets.

He had imbibed too freely of intoxi
cants, and conceived the idea that some
one must feel the force of his displeasure.
There were no men about whom lie consid
ered his equals,and he was at a loss what to
do. In custing about he saw a medium sized
woman, Mrs. Charles Elwine, his wife,
and at once proceeded to pummel her. A
black eye, a contusion on the neck, and
several bruises about the body was all the
physical damage suffered by the poor
woman, when a stranger passing in his
wagon, saw the fracas, and decided to
take a hand in it. Charles Elwine soon
regretted that more secrecy was not giv
en to his pugilistic efforts, and slunk
away the worst whipped man in town.
All this occurred near Lincoln Bridge yes
terday afternoon. Up to last accounts no
arrests had been made.

A YOUNG PITTS III'KG HER MUKDEREO
BY A DRUNKEN COOK.
The Victim a Son of John Scott, of Pitts
burgh—Scene of the Horrible Aflatr Near
Continence—Pleasure Turned to Mourn
ing—The Murderer Taken to the Som
Charles Scott, son of John Scott, the
stone contractor of Pittsburgh, was shot
and instantly killed Sunday by James
Lehr, of Allegheny. The shooting took
place at the camp of the Eureka Fishing
Club of Allegheny, near Confluence, near
Ohio Pyle Falls, on the Baltimore & Ohio
The body of young Scott was taken to
Pittsburgh yesterday morning, accom
panied by his companions who had gone
to the camp with him on Saturday, and
now HesatMoreland's undertaking rooms.
The funeral will take place from the resi
dedce of his father, John Scott, on Stan
ton avenue, East End, Wednesday, at 2
Gus Straub.an eye witness to the tragedy,
described it as follows : 1 ' Saturday night
young Scott, Wm. Marshall, Thos. Nis
bett, Mr. Echenlaub, Chas. Kurtz and
myself went to the camp as guests of the
Eureka Club. We had a most pleasant
visit till Sunday afternoon. Mr. Scott
aud I had been up in the woods near the
camp and came back about 4 o'clock.
Some of the -boys told us they had been
having some trouble with Lehr, the cook.
He had bceu drinking heavily, and Harry
Knorr, one of the members of the club,
told him he could have no more liquor.
Lehr chased him from the camp with a
revolver in his hand, but Anally came
back. While he was gone Mr. Kurtz
knocked the spigot out of the beer keg
and let it run in order to prevent Lehr
from getting any more. Lelir then made
for Kurtz, revolver in hand, but did not
shoot. He was in terrible anger and
threatened and swore around for a long
time to tho terror of all in camp.
" Up to this time Lehr had not said a
word to Scott or Scott to him. Finally,
about 5 o'clock, some of the members of
the club said to us that as there was not
much chance for supper, the way Lehr
was acting, that we had better go to Con-
Cjeucertor supper. To this we agreed,
and all started from camp. Scott was the
last one to leave the camp. He was about
one hundred yards behind me and was
standing in the door of a tent. lie oalled
to me to wait and scirted toward me. He
had come about t>-n yards when Lelir
coinc toward him aud calling liinr a vile
name, said, ' Where are you going; you
come back here.' Scott faced hirn and
said: 'I am going to Confluence.' 'No
you are not,' said Lelir, and pulled out
his revolver and, as Scott moved away
sideways, fired a shot at him. Scott then
moved away furthei, hut all the time
keeping his eyes on him, wher Lehr fired
again. Then Scott tired a shot from u
little revolver he had. I called to liiin 'o
run, and he turned to do so. when Lent
fired again, and the bullet struck Scott in
the back. He fell and never spoke a
word, dying instantly.
" Some of the boys hurried to Conflu
ence, and the magistrate and a constable
at once went to the camp. When they
got near camp, Lehr pulled his revolver
again, but the boys persuaded liim to put
it up. He did so and he was arrested
and taken to Somerset,where he is in jail.
The magistrate held an inquest, and four
teen witnesses told the same story I am
" There had been no fuss of any kind
between Scott and Lelir, and the shootiug
was entirely unprovoked. Lehr was the
only man in camp who was in the least
affected by liquor, and I would not have
anyone think for a moment that liquor
had anything to do with the fusa, as far
as Scott or anyone but Lehr was concern,
ed. I know that Scott had not had a
drink since 11 o'clock in the morning and
all day he did not drink over two or three
" Scott happened to be the last man to
leave camp, and I believe it would have
been the same had I or any one else been
the last man. Lehr was in an ugly mood
and seemed determined to pick a fight
with some one. He was fussing all the
afternoon, and became almost crazy with
anger when Kurtz knocked the spigot
out of the beer keg.
" There were six shots fired—four by
Lehr and, I think, two by Scott; but as
far as I could tell Scott fired in the air, and
after Scott fell Lehr fired another shot.
From where Lehr fired to where Scott
stood was 120 yards, and that his aim
should have been so true is a marvel to
