At present it is a hard matter to estimate the loss, but it is un assured fact that the damage done in the city and within 5 miles of it will amount to from $00,CUO to $80,000. The Pennsylvania railroad is the heaviest loser; most of its loss is tho result of a bad washout on its tracks above Conemangh. A Cloudburst. For several days the Concmangh river and Stony Creek valley have been visited by heavy rains of almost n continuous nature. The Stony creek reached its highest point about 9 o'clock .Sunday morning and after that time began to recede f, r rad- ually. By nielit it had fallen several feet, so that no serious damage was apprehended. Hut in the evening 1 a heavy rain be^nn in the Cone- mnug-h valley which continued until about 10 o'clock, when a cloudburst occurred near Ebensburg-. The valley in which the vast volume of water descended is a tributary of the Cone- mauffh, and shortly after the cloudburst the Conemaugh had swollen to many times its natural size. Flood ReucheK Johnfttown. The volume of water reached this vicinity about 8 o'clock in the morning and was accompanied by wholesale destruction. The flood'was first felt at Southfork, where numerous small buildings wore swept away. Further on in tho course of the stream the water undermined the track of the Pennsylvania road used by east-bound trains. For almost 3 miles this track was rendered impassable for trains and it became necessary for trains going either way to use the one track. All trains were delayed, Tho fast line due here at 10:80 o'clock was held all night on account of the washout at KKttanning, Jlrldtfofl Swept Away. At East Conemaugh the water beat furiously against the large Pennsylvania railroad roundhouse and weakened the foundations so greatly that it was found necessary to remove all the engines to a place of safo- ty. The building, however, stood. Several bridges and wooden structures below Conemaugh were badly damaged, but the fyeotest damage was in this city. In the Eleventh ward an Oklahoma house, owned by Peter Seymour, was caught by tho raging waters and swept to destruction. A three- story building of Philip Brown was torn" from its foundation and greatly damaged. The Iron bridge at this place was badly wrecked. Full}' $15,000 damage was done to property within 100 yards of the Pennsylvania passenger station here. Two Lives Lost. Between tho freight station and the river is an artificial embankment, 3n which were five loaded cars on a siding. The swift water undermined the bank, which gave way about 4 o'clock, carrying down into the river about '300 feet of track and tho cars. In one of the cars were five tramps, who are said to have been members ofGalvin's army. Three of them succeeded in escaping, but tho others perished. UnlllDuun Wanned Away. Three buildings were oerried away In the central part, of the city and a large number of others badly danjaged. The store of Anthony George was submerged, and, although anchored with ropes, the water swept it away. The residences of Emanuel James and Charles Statler also went down stream. The rear of the Grand Central hotel has caved in, but the building stood. Considerable damage was done to the bridges in this vicinity, but the worst is now over, A body just floated past the city. • Truffle Stopped. PITTSBUHGH, Pa., May 91.—The flood« have stopped traffic completely, on the Pennsylvania railroad east ot Greens-, burg, which is but 38 miles from Pittsburgh. The last through train to arrive was the Chicago limited, which reached this city at 10 o'clock last night. The trouble is between Johnstown and Altoona. The tracks are submerged In about 4 feet of water from Conemaugh to Bennington, a distance of 18 miles, and 1,500 feet ol track und the Conemaugh bridge are washed away. It will take two days to make the repairs and in tke meantime all Pennsylvania trains will, go over the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, connecting at Connellsville. Pennsylvania passengers for Harrisburg will be compelled to tirst go £0 Baltimore., Alarm at Altoona. £ ( Sunday night there was great ilarm •when it was reported that the reservoir at Kittanning Point, B few miles west of ^Altoona, had broken, Fortunately the break was- not an bad as first reported. Four Urge crevasse* were dug doiru the facs of the dam by a wave which - .. •« • ... »*' the lowlands beneath. The wave is thought to have been caused by it cloudburst. There is no doubt that tho dam lias been weakened and there may yet be trouble, although work it now being done to strengthen it. Still IIUlllR. In this city the rivers arc: still rising, but a stage of more than 35 feet is not feared. This will submerge the lowlands and cause a suspension of work in the mills and factories uloii£ the banks of the streams, but will do uc other damage.
