Last evening, according to a reliable
courier. 1.500 lives were lost. The reser

mense volume of water rushed down to
the city, carry iag with it death and de
struction. Houses with their occupants
were swept away and hundreds of people
Up to nine p. m. information received
about the Johnstown catastrophe came
through Pennsylvania railway officials,
who averred that over SXMead bodies bad
been counted floating down stream from
Johnstown alone, while alon? the line
many additional lives have been lost.
It was asserted that there were but two
bouses in Johnstown proper entirely
above the water line.
A special train bearing Pennsylvania
railway officials and a large number of
newspaper men left this city for the scene.
Telegraphic communication was entirely
W- H. Hays, superintendent of the sec
tion of the Pennsylvania railroad covered
by the flood, telegraphed last night to
Superintendent Pitcairn as follows: "The
destruction is terrible. The dam at
Johnstown is gone between the bridge
and tower. TVest of Johnstown at some
points the tracks are entirely carried
away and road bed gone. The river for
three-quarters of a mile above the bridge
is filled with buildings and driftwood
forty feet high, and is on lire, burning
furiously, and is entire.y be von d our con
trol. I can not estimate the amount of
damage. I walked over last night from
Johnstown to Sang Hollow, four miles.
Johnstown is literally wiped out."
Superintendent Pitcairn, who was at
Kew Florence, sixty-five miles east of
Pittsburgh, telegraphed that over one
huodied men, women and children passed
Sang Hollow clinging to debris. Seven
were rescued at Sang Hollow, two at
Conemaugh Furnace and two at New
Florence. Only forty-seven of the hun
dred and over parsed New F.orence. Ihe
loss of life and property was terrible.
A special from B'.airsvillo station on
the Pennsylvania railroad says: ''John
Barton, a freight engineer, saw three men
and a woman struggling for their lives in
the Couemaugh river just below Johns
town. The Western Union office in
Johnstown was swept away at four
o'clock yesterday afternoon. The water
In Cambria City, where are located the
Cambria iron works, is thirty-five feet
deep and rising."
The reservoir or dam at South Fork,
which is said to have burst with such ter
rible results is described by a gentleman
acquainted with the locality in which it
was situated to be an immense body of
water fornierlv used as a water supply
for the old Pennsylvania canaL It
has been ownod for several years
by a number of Pittsburgh gentlemen
who used it as a fishing ground. Ihe
gentleman nho gave this information said
tint if ths rrport of the bursting of the
dam was true, he hal no doubt that the
damage and loss of life was fully a great
as indicated in he dispttrhes.
OTHER TOWSS PROBABLY GOSE.
PrrrsBCP.GB, Pa. June 1. The course of
the torrent from the broken dam at the
foot of the lake to Johnstown is almost
eighteen miles, and with the exception of
one point the water passed through a nar
row V shaped valley. Four miles below
the dam lay the town of South Fork where
the South Fork itself empties into the
Conemanch river. The town contained
about 2.OJ0 inhabitants. It has not been
beard from, but it is said that four-fifths
of it has been swept away.
Four miles further down on the Cone
Jiaugh river, which runs parallel with the
main line of the Pennsylvania railroad,
was the town of Mineral Point It bad
AtW inhabitants, 90 per cent of the bouses
oeing in a flat close to the river. It seems
impossible at this time to hope that any
of them have escaped.
Six miles further down was the town of
Conemaugh and here alone was there a
topographical possibility of the spreading
cf the flood and the breaking of its force
It contained 8,500 inhabitants and Bust
be almost wholly devastated.
Woodville, with 2. GO) people, lay a mile
below Conemaugh in the flat, and one
mile further down were Johnstown and
its cluster of sister towns Cambria
City and Conemaugh borough, with a
total population of SO. 000. On made
ground and stretched along right at the
river verge were the immense iron works
of the Cambria Iron and Steel Company,
who had $5,000,000 invested in their plant
Besides this there are many other large
industrial establishments on the bank of
the river, how badly damaged can sot be
THE CAMBTtlA CITT HORROR.
Dsrrv, Pa June 1. At Cam bra City
there are probably a dozen houses in what
was a thriving manufacturing town forty
eipht hours ago. No estimate can be
formed of the amount of damage, but the
probable loss of life is terrible. There are
at present 530 lires known to have
been sacrificed and hundreds of peo
ple are homeless. The cold raw
weather of this morning is particularly
severe on those who aro without
shelter and no means of relief at hand as
the trains can not reach here from either
west or east Every thing possible is be
ing done for the sufferers. Communica
tion with the enter work! has been cut off
and only temporary accommodation can
be had. Same place the damage to prop
erty at from $12 000,000 to $15,000,000, bat
autil the excitement calms down it is im
possible to form any correct estimate.
The latest man from Johnstown brings
the information that scarcely a hoase re
mains in the city. The upper portion
above the bridge has been completely sub
merged. The water dammed up against
the viaduct, the wreckage and debris
finishing the work that the torrent had
failed to accomplish. The bridge at
Johnstown proved too stanch for the fury
of the water, it is a heavy piece of
masonry, and was used as a viaduct by
She Pennsylvania canal Son of the top
stones were displaced.
The story reached here a short time age
that a farailv consisting of father and
mother and nine children were washed
way in a creek at Lock Haven. The
mother managed to reach the shore, bat
the husband and children were carried
ont into the Conemaujh to drown. The
woman is crazed over the terrible affair.
After night settled down on the mount
ains the horror of the scene was enhanced.

Patrick Maddsn wa nearly dead when
pulled from the river. He was la the
house of Edward Garrey. All were
caught Ten minutes later the house was
wrecked, Garvey and his son-in-law were
drowned and Madden was thrown into
the flood. "When I rose to the surface,"
be said, "I saw my wife hanging on to a
piece ot scantling. She let it go and
was drowned, almost within reach
of my arm, and I could not help or
save her. I caught a log and floated with
it fer five or six miles, but it was knocked
from under me when I went over the dam.
I then caught a bale of hay and was taken
out by Mr. Marener. My wife is certainly
drowned, and six children all missing and
I fear are drowned."
There are without doubt fully a thou

borough and Cambria City.

rising when the men left at six o'clock at
the rate of five feet aa hour.
Clinging to improvised raft, con

boards and timbers, were agon zed men,
women and children, their heartrending

houses began floating down and clinging

A dispatch was received last evening
from H. J. Franklin, formerly special
agent of she Santa Fe, requesting C 8.
Gleedto secure requisition papers upon
the Governor of Arizona for the body ot
J. W. Hillman, who was bow under arrest
awaiting proper authority to be returned
to Kansas,' where his name has become
famous because of the three long trials in
which bis wife claimed from the Mutual
Life Insurance Company of New York,
the New York Life Insurance Company
and the Connecticut Mutual Lite
Insurance Company, the aggregate sum
of $25,000 which he bad placed
on his life a short time before his
supposed death, and the bringing to Law
rence of his dead body, which was recog
nized by more than forty witnesses und;r
oath as that of the dead John W. Hill
man. The insurance companies refused to pay
the policies, declaring that the body was
not that of Hillman. but the body of some
man murdered for the solo purpose of ob
taining the 25,000.
Pending the first suit a reward of $10,
000 was offered by the companies for the
arrest of Hillman, which reward they
pledged the good faith of the companies
to pay whenever the missing man was ar
rested. Eight years ago, J. M. Miller, then a
resident of Lawrence, who, being well ac
quainted with Hillman and refusing te
acknowledge the dead body as that of the
man claimed, commenced his weary
search. Knowing Hillman to have been
a miner as well as a cattleman, he natur
ally sought the mountainous country ot
the West as the most natural retreat of
such a man. Going to the mining coun
tries he worked first in one camp and then
another always with one end in view, ths
capture of the missing man, who, it
found, would also be a murderer, working
first at mining then at tie chopping for
the Santa Fe, never long in one place.
Miller run down every possible clew,
many times disappo.nted, but never dis
couraged, and never changing bis belief
that the Rockies held the man wanted by
justice, and whose rerealment would
bring him $10,000
J Miller's face became a familiar one in
all the camps of Colorado, New Mexico,
Arizona, Old Mexico and more Northern
Territories. Ia this search as was aided
at times by Mr. Franklin, who shared his
belief that Hillman was still alive.
Two years ago Miller saw and identified
his man, and immediately asked for a
requisition to be sent to him. Tue neces
sary papers were issued and' after somt
delay a man was sent with them, but Hill
man had recognized his former neighbor
and again disappeared.
In no wise discouraged Miller again
commenced a search aad last week again
found his man, this time securing htm and
remaining with him while Franklin went
on for the papers. Fianklin will arrive
here to-day, and will immediately
start back for the man whoso nearly wore
out three judges and three juries and
numberless lawyers and witnesses, and
whose wife has since remarried.
March 17,1879.accordingto evidence. John
Brown and John Hillman went into camp
on Crooked creek, in Barber County, be
ing on their way to Texas. Brown- went
for a farmer named Briley, who returned
with Brown, who had notified him
of the killing. He found a wagoa
and a camp fire about twelve feet
apart, and aear the fire was a man who
bad beea shot, the ballet from a 44-ceIibet
gun had entered the skull one and a half
inches above and one inch la front ot ths
auditory meatus on the right side and had
passed oat on the left side one inch above
the ear. The feet of the body
were toward the fire and the bead was
supported oa a few fagots. The dead
man's bat was burning in the flames.
Browa said the dead man was Hillman,
and in taking his gun out of the wagon
in preparing for bed, he (Brown) had
caught the hammer on the wagoa box or
a blanket and the gun had been dis
charged. He heard a groan, he turned
and saw Hillman stagger and start to
fall, and lunnlng to bim caught him and
swung bim around away from the fire. He
then took a horse and went for the nearest
The following morning Mr. Paddock,
the justice of the peace, held an inquest,
after which the body was carried to Medi
cine Lodge, where another inquest was
held. After the second inquest the body
was buried and Brown and Levi Baldwin
and Alva Baldwin had brought material
to fence it, when Major Theodore Wise
man and Mr. Tillinghast, insurance
agents, of Lawrence, arrived and insisted
on exhuming the body for identification.
From the hour that disinterment took
place Walker, Wiseman and Tillinghast
have been sure the body was not Hillman.
Levi Baldwin has said it was Hillman.
Brown, who is the only person who can
absolutely know, has sworn both that it I
was and that it was not while Alva '
Baldwin, brother of Levi Baldwin, and
one of the most intimate acquaintances of
Hillman, has never appeared ia court
The dead body was taken to Lawrence
badly decomposed. Mrs. Hillman hesi
tated as to whether she should go aad see
the body, but finally decided to do so.
The body was buried at Oak Hill ceme
tery, but was again taken up and photo
graphed, a front aad side view being
taken, the face being disfigured. Some
fifteen ot the witnesses at the first exam
ination swore positively that the bodv
was not that of Hillman, there being i

DUVOLL'S LUCKY STRIKE.
Loot a WlUea Dollars Wlth-
la Six Heaths.
Sonora, Tuolumne County. Cat, waa
at one time the liveliest and richest
mining' camp in the Golden State.
Gold was found in the very street and
the supply seemed inexhaustible. For
the past few years, however, Sonora
has been on the down grade. A few
nines are worked in the vicinity. Vat
the town itself is about as dead as a
One of the best known characters of
the town, and who may be seen any
day leaning up against some post and
gazing into space, as if he had no
farther use for the scenes about him,
is a Frenchman by the name of DuvolL
Duvollis about fifty-six years old
and is a very fair specimen of the
busted miner" type so prevalent
among the mining districts of the
Pacific siope. No one would suppose
by looking at him that only a lew
years since he counted his gold by the
hundreds of thousands, yet such is
really the case.
Duvoll sprang into wealth and
prominence in the fall and winter of
1884-5. He made in those few months
something like $1,350,000. To-day he
has not a cent to his name. It hap
pened this way:
About four miles from Sonora some
men were sinking a prospect shaft
when they struck a rich "pocket."
yielding some $30,000 or more in gold.
They drifted' about after that in the
hope of finding more, but concluded
finally that there was no more in it.
Duvoll had been prospecting around
and working in the mines, and had
saved about $400. He had heard of
this pocket, and thinking it a good
"spec," offered the men his $400 for
their claim, which offer they jumped
at, thinking Duvoll crazy to want to
work the claim any further.
This didn't seem to "phase" Duvoll
any, for he went to work steadily, and
day after day for about a month he
wielded his pick and shovel at the
bottom of the shaft, until (the ground
he was working in was a soft, decom
posed quartz) he found a narrow
thread of quartz showing a consider
able quantity of free gold.
That night Duvoll procured some
heavy timbers and some lumber and
built a cabin over the shaft. A nephew
of his was called to his assistance, and
one of them was always at the cabin
after that for a period of six months.
That narrow streak of quartz soon
began to widen and the gold became
more plentiful, until an ore chamber
was reached, containing perhaps the
greatest amount of gold in a given
space that ever was discovered.
The gold was taken out in the
bucketful. At every stroke of the
pick great chunks of quartz that were
almost 6olid masses of gold would be
loosened, and this was kept up until
they had taken out altogether 6ome
9 000 pounds, which yielded upward
This sort of thing, of course, could
not last always, and so when the
"find" petered out Duvoll and his
nephew went down to San Francisco
to invest their money and enjoy them
selves. The nephew had. I believe, a
tenth interest in the pocket
A million dollars wasn't enough for
Duvoll, and in order to increase his
pile he took a "flier'1 at stock specu
lation. He took several "fliers." in
fact, and so did the nephew. In about
sixty days the nephew was "busted,"
and Duvoll's "pile" had been dimin
ished to about $300,000.
Duvoll's next step was to invest
about $150,000 in dwelling property
on Haight street, San Francisco.
He then returned to Sonora. After
several disastrous mining specula
tions, he was induced to go into a big
irrigation scheme which almost broke
him and compelled him to mortgage
his San Francisco property.
After a number of other ventures
the Haight street property went by
the board, and Duvoll, without even
hiB original $400. found himself skir
mishing about Sonora for a job at $3 a
