To-day the first Intel igeutly rganiztd work of searching for tbe bodies and cleaning away the debris be. (.Tin. and Arthur Kirk, an expert from PitU-bi rg, w ith 200 men, will soon begin blowing up tlir jam of debris at the east end of the Ptunaylvama IUllro&d bridge with dynamite. '1 bis debris covers an area of 1,250 by 100 fei t, uud under the wreckage are supposed to be the bodies of 2,000 people. 'i here is no possible way of recovering any of these corpses, nor freeing the river of its ghastly burden, and hundreds ot men spent tbu morning vainly searohing tbe still smoulder ng ruit.s lor tome trace of missing re'o-tives or friends. Fire-engines from Pittsburg were industriously ploying streams of water from the Conemaugh on the dying embers. 'On the other side of the river, in what was the business portion of Johnstown, 35' i mi n were engaged in catrylug the wreck, age from the street to the river bank, where it wan placed in piles and burned. Tliis method of clearing the streets is adopted in order that no bodies may be destroyed by flro. Otherwise the wreckage in many sections of the city could be burned ns it stands, for there is little hope of recovering any property. An Evbniko 'World representative made a tour of the devastated little city this morning. Ti.e first through train over the Baltimore and Ohio brought in tbe second detachment of Tire Wobld'b corps of reporters and artists. On this train were two members of the Philadelphia Belief Committee, Messrs. Nell and Tuinblestone, and Mrs. J. H. Qaysby Mid Miss E. Fend, sisters, who hnd been on visit to New York and hod returned home expecting to And all their relatives lost. Mrs, Qaysby was met at the station by her husband, Col, Qaysby. The father of the ladles, Mr. Feud, and Mrs. Gsysby'g little daughter had also been aved. The ladles stayed at tho Continental Hotel while iu New York. Beginning at tho B. and O. temporary station, down to the point of the river, houses and buildings of all descriptions are piled up in heaps twenty feet high. How many bodies are buried there no one knows. The town officials are overwhelmed with ouestlons by those soeking information, Alexander Hart, the Chief of Police, and Irwin Ilarrell, tho Burgess, nre struggling to satisfy the crowd as host thoy can, but of course their force U wholly inadequate to the demand. Burgess Horrell told Tub Ktkmino Would reporter that provisions nud money would be , gratefully received, but asks that all relief committees be made as few In number as possible, for it was impossible to house or feed them. Adjt.-Qen. Hastings said this morning that at least 2,200 bodies had been recovered thus far. Many of the large number of bodies to-day are being recovered in the borough of Cambria, which lies a quarter of a mile below the Pennsylvania Itailroad bridge. About 10 o'clock a number of corpses were taken out of the jam at the bridge. They were all dlsilured so badly as to bo unrecognizable except by bits of olothing. Pittsburg gets her water supply from the Conemaugh, and she fears tho decomposed bodies will breed a pestilence. This afternoon she will send 2,000 men to work on the ruins. CRAZED BY THE HORROR. A Woman Who Danced, Nana and Laughed In tbe Dreadful Yall.y. riFBCUL TO TUB BVBVIXO WOBLD.l JonNSTOwN, Pa., June 4. A woman was seen to smilo this morning as she came down the steps of Prospect Hill. Bhe ran down lightly, turning uu towards tho stone bridge. Bhe passed the little railroad station where tbe undertakers are at work embalming the dead, and walkud slowly until she got opposite the station. Then she stopned and danced a few steps. There was but a small crowd there. The woman raised her hands above her head and sang. Bhe became quiet and then suddenly burst Into a f ronxied fit of weeping and beat her forehead with herlhands. Bhe tore her dress, which was already in rags. ' I shall go orazy," she screamed, " if they do not find hU body." The poor woman could not go crazy as her mind had been already shattered. " He was a good man," Bhe went ou, while the onlookers listened pityingly. " J loved him and he loved me." " Wnere is he ?" she screamed. " I must find him." And she started at the top of her speed down the track towards the river. Some men caught her. Bhe struggled desperately for a few moments and then fainted. Her name is Eliza Adams, and she is a bride of but two months. Her husband was a foreman at the Cambria Iron Works and was drowned. Hers is not the only case of dementia. Tho awful scones of Friday, Saturday and Sunday were too much for many of the sur-vlvors The sight of the bruised and inflated bodies lying in the streets of tho town and along the river banks made the brains of tho strongest men spin around and their hearts sink. Its effect on weak women can be imagined. The body of a beautiful young girl of twenty was found this morning wodgod iu a moss of ruins just below the Gambia Iron Works. She was taken out and laid on the damp grass. She was (all, slender, of well-rounded form, clad in a long red wrapper, with lace SCENES AMID THE JOHNSTOWN RUINS. A Citizens' Posse Driving Off the Human Vultures Who Prey Upon the Poor Victims of the Terrible Disaster. at her throat end wrists. Her feet were encased in pretty embroidered slippers. Her face was a study for an artist. Features clear cut as though chiselled from Parian marble ; and strangely enough, they bore not the slightest disfigurement, and had not the swelled and puffed appearanco that was present iu nearly all the other drowned victims. A smile rested on her lips. Her hair, which had evidently been golden, wits matted with mud and fell iu heavy masses to her waist. " Does any one know her?" was asked of the silent group that had gathered around. No one did, and she was carried to the im-improvised morguo in the school-house and will probably fill a grave as one of the "unidentified dead." 'Tho effect of the circumstances hero on different people is a curious feature. Borne are rcraleBS, some are silent, some weep, whl'.o it seems to make the foreigners and negroes want to fight. Lite last night tho Hungariaus who live in the upper part of the town, in what is called Conemaugh Borough, became boisterous. Their houses are near where the gorge w.dens out into the valley, some distance, from the centre of tbe city, where tbe seventy-five policemen wliojwore sent down from Pittsburg are quartered. The exhausted nud sleepy bluecoats were exasperated at being ordered out, and made quick work of the brawlers with their clubs. Soma negroes who had shown signs of rioting were warned that they would get a similar dose, and they, too, subsided. These- outbreaks there have been two or three of them a: a not due to intoxication, but are the natural result of tho extraordinary order of things now prevailing here. - HEROES OF THE FLOOD. An Unknown Faal Itevere' Wild Hide Turougli that Valley of Death. FrrTBBono. Pa.. June 4. Buried beneath the wreckage in the Conemaugh Valley lies an unknown hero, who sacrificed his hfo in a noble but hopeless cause. When the pent-up waters had beguu to break their way thronch tho dam nud Wore they had rushed forward on their pathway of destruction, a great bay horse came galloping through the road that leads towards Johnstown. Abovo tho clatter ot his iron-bound hoofs arose- tho voice of his rider shouting a warning : " The dam is giving way. ltun for tho hills, tho valley will be flooded." Men and women camo to their doors oh lie passed and looked after him wonderinglv. They bod often beard alarming rumors about the waters ot the Conemaugh Lake some day pouring down upon them, but they had not, so they smiled and wondered and thought the wild rider some lnsauo man perhaps. But on tore the great hay. and like Paul Revere of old the rider shouted out his warning as he sped along. Nearer and nearer he camo to the doomed city, and almost desairing grew his cry. His foam-flecked horso labored as ho toio along, but on and ou he went. Behind him came a sullen roar. The tor. rent bad broken loose and was pursuing him. Over tho ground that he had passed in bin noble mission it rushed, hurling together trees and houses and human beings iu one terriblo medley. Forty feot high it camo surging along, Tho unfortunates, who hud not heeded the warning, were caught iu its relentless maw. With lightning sjeed it poured forward hx i -1-WJuA, V-u,..fl . . . , . , . ,. , pursuit of tho bay horse and the daring rider who had tried to rob tho torrent of its prey. The horse sped fast, but the waters flew faster still. But it was an unfair race. Clcsowns the torrent behind him at tho Pennsylvania Itailroad. and as horse and rider got upon it the great wavo overwhelmed thorn and they wero lost in tho whirling flood. Another bravo man who risked his lite to warn tho unfortunates iu tho doomed valley was John Q. Park, a civil engineer from Philadelphia. Early on Friday morning ho saw that the dam might burst, but thought that au outlet might savo it. With a force of thirty Italian laborers, ho sot to work to prepare another sluice. After this had been douo the water still continued to rise. Fast it roso, too nearly n foot an hour. Another outlet was cut, but it did no good. Then tho young engineer mounted a horse and started to warn the poople in the village of Bouth Fork, which was juvt bolow. At breakneck speed ho went, shouting out his warning. Hundreds of people took to the adjacent hills and thus saved their lives. Benching Bouth Fork Btation bo telegraphed toJohustown, and two men were started through that city warning the people to flee. Somo heeded but othors did not bolievo there was dauger nud remained to perish. Mr. Park says that at noon of that awful day everybody in the Couemaagh Valley knew, or should havo known of the danger. But thoy had heard tho cry of n olf so olten they did not heed it. m i THE PRESIDENT'S SOLICITUDE. lie Is In Constant C'ommnnlcatloa With ov.

TO TUB IVISIKU WOULDl Philadelphia. June 4. In commenting on tho causuro directed from somo quarters towards tho members of the South Fork Fishing Club, a local paper says editorially: " There are somo facts which should bo taken into consideration before indulging iu a wholesalo condemnation of those Pittsburg citizens who aro so uuforlunato an to own a reservoir which was unable to withstand the extraordinary and unforeseen pressuro to which it was iubjectcd last Friday morning. "Tho peculiar situation of Johnstown, in a narrow valley ut tho junction of two uioun-tain torrents, has instilled into tho minds of some of its people a quickened sense of danger, and this gave rise several years ego to u rumor that the Conemaugh dam was unsafe. " Tho Cambria Iron Company, which ha so much at stake at Johnstown, and may be supposed to havo as much Influeiico with the Cambria Comity Courts, even en the 'mag-nato ' theory, us any or all ot tho Pittsburg Clubmen, took tho mutter up and instructed its solicitor to institute piocccdiugs in couit to have the water released. The solicitor informed his company that such action would have to bo snported by evidence that the dntn wos unsafe. " To secure such evidenco the Company employed a number of engiuecrs to cxamiuo mid report upon the dam. These engineers were the best obtainable by that Company. but after a thorough examination they reported that tho dam, as originally con. structedand as enlarged by tho Club, was perfectly safe. " This indorsement of onginocrs employed by those who wished to condemn tho dam settled tho matter, as tho Cambria Iron Company accepted their judgment that there won no danger to be apprehended, and the contemplated legal proceedings wero aban. doned." GOTHAM'S UNSTINTED AID. ANOTHER 1NP0URINO OF BILLS AND CHECKS AT THE MAYOR'S OFFICE. Yesterdny'a Itellef Fund Donation. Hid Fair to Da Doubled In Amount To-Ilar Mnrlellr. and limine.. Firms I.rndlnff Aid England Stirred to Mymprnthy and a Hood Hab.crlptlon. New York's compassion for the grent sufferers iu the Conemaugh Valley continued to pour out in tho form of money contributions this morning. The early receipts at tho Mayor's office indicated thnt tho large amount raised yesterday would bo uioro than doubled to-dav. Private Secretary Ciain was kept busy for two hours opening tho morning mall auu piling up the rhrcks and bank notes which tho letters contained. Among to-day's contributions was a check from Prince &. Wbitely, of 04 Broadway, for &5.0C0, the gift of tho London Stock Ex. change, directed by coble from England. To facilitate tho work of the Committee In hurriedly forwarding the money received. Cashier Buckhout, of tho Fourth National Bauk, established a tort of branch liauk iu tho Mayor's office, with Secretaries Speer, Whitlow nud Scott, of tho llolicf Committee, to assist him. Ono of tho touching Incidents in connection with the collection of tho contributions at tho Mavor's office was tho appearance of a poorly clud laboring man with his mile. It was a 2 bill which had been given him out of chnrltv Inst evening, and he said he couldn't bring himself to using it for his ou n wants, which are many and presslm:, but felt impelled to give it to the poor sufferers at Johnstown. Archbishop Corrigau, who could not attend tho mooting yesterd.iy became of his absence from the city, sent n note of rtgret to Mayor (inn it and Inclosed his check for i'ito. Mayor Grant's telegram to tho Belief Coin, mitteo at Pittsburg authorising a draft ou him for 50,000 was productive of the following despatch of acknowledgment: l'msnUBO, June .'I.
