scarrely a body was found In which life
was not extinct
The night had been one of hardship
and horror, which severely tested the
mettle of the men whom circumstances
had pressed Into first aid revcuers ot
the flood-devastated village.
Men who shuddered at the touch of a
dead body at the outset Indifferently
searched mantled bodlea for papers of
Identification 'ere they had been lone
at work in the debris. One corpse among
so many did not seem ghastly; the sen
sation was appalling.
Dam Mile from City.
The scene of the obliteration of Austin
rovers an area three-eighths of a Sille
wide and one and three-juartres mile
long. This comprlaed the buslnesa see
tlon and the valley residence portion
and was bounded by Main. Riickaber
and Thorn streets and Costello avenue,
crowed by lesser thoroughfarea.
Nearly a mile above stood the mam
moth concrete dam of the Bayless Taper
and Puly company. w feet long, fifty
two feet high and thirty foet tl.lrk at
the bottom, tapering to a thlrkness of
three feet at the top.
Back of this dam yesterday lay a reser
voir of water a mile and a half Ions
and an average cf thirty-five feet deep.
Wrertly In front of the dam stood the
plant of the Bayless company, with four
main huildlnps Stacked hlRh nearby
was 7v,cv cord of fifty-Inch wood and
slabs and also a portion of the com

last larne cut of the region. It aj val

A mill stream. Freeman run. flowed
through the town Into Plnnemahonlng
creek, leading to the Susquehanna river.
The town proper was a smart little place
of comfortable frame houses and more
substantial business buildings along the
msln street, which ran from nlde to side
across the ravine. The principal busl
nesM building Included the brick structure
occupied 1ontly by the Austin bank and
the poatofflce, the department store of
A. ft. Puck, the Ooodyear hotel and the
Commercial house and numerous general
The minutes, after the dam burst thla
stags had been swept of Its setting. Along
the foothills were thrown telescoped
houres. At either end of Msln street
brick buildings acted as buffers as the
twenty-five foot wall of water rushed
tnwnwaid with Its mass of debris. Al
most hill high the wood, steel snd" brick
were piled, a mixture of the contents
of stores snd homes and of varied length
timbers and stlcka.
Wreckage of Dam Complete,
The wreckage of the dam had been as
complete as It was sudden. Two Immense
sections from top to bottom a hundred
and fifty feet wide were thrown out bod
ily like the Immense gates ot a canal
lock. The outward swing was mors than
fifty feet and on either side the remain
ing structure began gradually to crumble
Repairs last Spring had consisted of a
patch of cement fourteen feet . square
One of the severed sections yesterday be
gan at that patch.

which the district, attorney ot 'Potter
county will investigate. The Bayless dam
was examined by experts more than a
year ago and recommendations were
made looking to Its ssfety. The district
attorney has secured the namaa ot soma
of the experts who submitted the report
and will summon them to testify at an
inquest to begin thla week.
Relief work has not been systematically
organised tonight, but It is hoped that
by morning the chaotic conditions will
have been relieved somewhat.

day progressed small knots of survivors
met and visited the sight of the ruined
town. Many striking Incidents of the

Credit for the quick spreading of the
alarm was given to Lena Blnchey, a te!
