It Is no hackneyed utterance to say that

disaster holocaust and deluge with
which the towns in the Conemangh valley
were visited last week. Silence ia the most
expressive eloquence for the deep emotions
that spring from the heart of every man
who has read the lengthy accounts in the
sewEpapcrs of the death wave which swept
away the homes and destroyed the lives ot
the thousands of happy and prosperous In
habitants of the stricken region, and the
flames which fed ravenously upon the huge
mase of debris-which gathered at the fatal
bridge in Johnstown, and the hundreds of

as those enacted at Johnstown and

human life Ia tbn latest, and by far the
most frightful catastrophe ever experienced
in America, hundreds of deeds of heroism
passed unrecorded into oblivion hundreds
of vain efforts were made to rescue the

their doom. Numberless cases of manly
heroism and womanly devotion might bo

rather than accept salvation without the
children who clung to them. Brave men
relinquished their chances of escape intotho
hands of those of the weaker sex whose piti

Stories of miraculous escapes are told by
men, women and children who reached
places of refuge after terrible experiences
in the awful flood To those who find no
friends in the death-list these narrations
prove most readable

was the progress of the wave that they had
to wade through water up to their waists
before reaching the high ground. They
had little more than a block to go, ana the
people who were twenty
hind them were caught by
and swept away. The water came in
a wall, preceded by a yellowish cloud
of mist or foam, and as it caught the blocks
of houses It swept them down together with
a succession of crashes that was terrible.
As soon as possible they began the work of
organizing relief parties to rescue the people
who were on the houses that had been
swept back into Stony Creek when the
water could not escape below. One secured
a clothes-line which was used to send
out a raft with a strong man
to take the people off the houses. A river
man volunteered for this work, and with a
rope tied securely about his body he made
many trips into the flood, and each time
brought two people ashore with him. The
other gentlemen carried these people up to
the high ground, where they were cared
for by the residents of that locality. Tbey
rescued over fifty people in this way, most
ly women and children.
Miss Mary Adams drifted on tho top of a
box-car towards the burning debris at tho
stone bridge. Her raft lodged about
twenty feet from the flames, which were
burnlug furiously. Hoards and drift of all
kinds was packed around her and she could
not move any tiling buther hands and head.
The flames crept nearer and nearer, and she
became frantic, calling out to the men on
the bank to shoot her or stone her to death.
At last a rope was thrown her which she
fastened around her body. The flames at
this time were all around hrr. The men
dragged her ashore more dead than alive.
Her left arm was broken In two places and
both legs were badly crushed.
Mrs. George Staulter was rescued alive
Thursday night from the wreck of a house
away down the river. When found she was
lying in a cavity beneath a pile of beams
and rafters which held up the mass of ruins
on top and prevented them from crush
ing her. She was unconscious and
was just breathing. Her hold on
life was a very slender one, and
it is not probable that she will
live, although she Is receiving the tender
est of care. When the news of her rescue,
after six days and nights of exposure and
lack of nourishment, spread through the
town, hundreds of people crowded about
the stretcher on which she was being car
ried to see her. It is considered almost
miraculous that she should have remained
alive so long. The rain and cold were
enough to kill her.
The body of a woman was found with a
pretty baby clasped in her arms with what
had been a most loving embrace. All efforts
to unclasp her arms were unvavailing. The
only way to get the baby from the dead

mother was to break the arms, and the res
cuers resolved to let them lie in death as
they had in life.
William Gaffney lost fourteen relatives,
including his wifo and two children.
Several of the bodies he recovered, and un
aided performed the mournful duty of dig
ging their graves and burying them. Ia
speaking of the matter he said: "I never
thought that I could perform such a sad
duty, but I had to do it and I did It No
one has any idea of the feelings of a man
who acts as undertaker, grave-digger and
pa'.l-bearcr for his own family."

Mrs. Ogle was the Western Union tele
graph operator at Johnstown for twenty
years. Her daughter, Minnie, was her as
sistant She was at her post when the flood
came. Her last message was one of warn
ing to those lower down in the valley. She
could have escaped with her daughter and
two other assistants had she selfishly mind
ed the first warnings that came over the
wire, bnt she ordered that no one leave
the office until the valley was warned. All
heroically stood their ground and were lost.
A wealthy young Philadelphian named
Ogle recently became engaged to a Johns
town lady. Miss Carrie DichL They were to
be wedded in the middle of June, and both
parties were preparing for the ceremony.
The lover heard of the terrible flood, but,
knowing that the residence of bis dear one
was up in the hills, felt little fear for her
safety. To make sure, however, he
started for Johnstown. Neae the Fourth
street morgue he met Mr. Diehl
"Thank God you are safe!" he exclaimed,
then added: "Is Oarrio well?" "She was
visiting in the valley when the wave came,"
was the mournful reply, then he beckoned
the young man to enter the chamber of
death. A moment later Mr. Ogle was kneel
ing beside a rough bier and was kissing the
cold, white face. From the lifeless finger
he slipped a thin, gold ring, and in its place
put one of his own. Then he stole quietly
out one of the thousands made to mourn
by the bursting of the South Fork dam.
The most pathetic case yet brought to
light is that of James Elgin. He had come
to Johnstown to attend the wedding of his
sister Ellen. He knew of the fact that a
terrible disaster had taken place, bnt
had no idea tbat his family was Involved.
His agony may be Imagined rather
than described when learning on law
arrival that his mother and three sisters
had been drowned and his father demented
over the terrible affliction The old gen
tleman was crying like a child and asking
those he met: "Did you see them Did
you see them go down; they will come back
for the wedding to-night. She has gone for
her bridal wreath."
Squire Fisher and his wife had aa Inter

but a locomotive was swept down, struck

17, were lost. This lad a few days later,

1 Blaine said last evening that be thought
it would undoubtedly require ratification
by the Senate. If the instrument signed
was one regulating the conduct of two
countries toward each other, as for in
stance, between the United 8tates and
Samoa, it would properly be desig
nated as a treaty, but where
the Instrument signed is to shape
the conduct of three Governments the
United States, England and Germany
towards a fourth parly Samoa it was
held that its proper nomenclature was an
agreement. At the same time, as It was
a matter effecting the foreign policy of
the United States, it would need ratifica
tion by the Senate, aud therefore, it could
not be made public prior to action by the
Senate. The agreement was cordially
approved by all members of the confer
ence and by their respective Govern
ments. The best of feeling prevailed at
the termination of the labors of the Com
missioners. WHAT THE AUBEEX EST PROVIDES.
Behu.v, June 15. America having aban
doned her principal objections to the
agreement previously arrived at, the
plenipotentiaries bad only to make unes
sential modifications in the wording of the
draft of treaty. The draft guarantees an
autonomous administration of the islands
under the joint control of Germany and
America, England acting as arbitrator in
the event of differences arising. The Sa-
moans are to elect their own King ana

is to have the right of levying duties of
every kind. The Germans are to receive
a money indemnity for their losses. A
special court is to be appointed to deal
with the land question.
The Americans made their adhesion
conditional upon the ratification of the
treaty by the United States Senate. The
status quo will therefore obtain in Samoa
until December. Mr. Phelps will carry
the agreement to Washington and it will
not be published until signed by the

New York, June 11 The suit of O'Don

sidy for libel was dismissed by Police
Justice Smith yesterday, after hearing
the testimony, which showed that Rossa
bad accepted $32.59 in full settlement of
any damage which he might have sus
tained by the publication of the alleged
libed in the Catholic News. All of the
allegations conveyed in the publication
and many more discrediting Rossa were
proved by the testimony which included
a letter written by Henry Labouchere
convicting Rossa of intimacy with the
British spies and informers. By the testi
mony of Patrick Ford, Cassidy, Richard
Snort, tbe man who stabbed Captain
Phelan, and others, it was proved tbat
Rossa had defaulted iu almot every in
stance of bis being the custodian of funds
entrusted to him for specific objects. The
judge seeing tbat Rossa had not a leg to

In the United States Circuit Const for the

ago in the suit of the owners of the trade
marks covering Hoetetter's Stomach Bitters

that, although the defendants made use of

A Fair Trial
Of Hood's Esrsaparilla will convince any- reason
able person tbat It does possess great medicinal
merit. Wo do not claim that ererr bottle will ac
complish a miracle, bnt we do know that nearly er
err bottle, taken according- to directions, does pro
dace positive benefit. Its peculiar caraUve power
Is shown by many remarkable cares.
I was ran down from close application to work,
bat was told I had malaria and was dosed with
aatnbie.etc which was asele as. I decided to take
Hood's SarsaparUla and am bow feeling strong and
cheerful. I feel satUBed It will benefit any wbo
give It a fair trial.' W. B. Beamish, 361 Spring
