Urkisnshdpu, Pa., June 1.—The
reservoir, the bursting of which created
such havoc at Johnstown, was lor
merly known as Conemaugh Lake
It is from 200 to 300 feet above the
level of Johnstown, being in the
mountains. It is about three and
half miles long and from a mile to
one and a quarter miles in width and
in ,some places it is 100 feet in depth,
It holds >Morp fffitfir than any other
reservoir, natural or artificial, jn the
United States. The lake has been
quadrupled in size by artificial means
and was held in check by a dam from
700 to 1,000 feet wide. It is 90 feet
in thickness at the base and its height
is 110 feet. The top baa a breadth
of over 20 feet. Recognizing the
menace which the lake had to the re
gion below, the South Fork Club had
the dam inspected once a month by
the Pennsylvania railroad’s engineers,
and their investigation showed that
nothing less than some convulsion of
nature would toar the barrier away
The steady rains of the past forty
eight hours increased the volume of
water iu all the small mountain
streams, which were already swollen
by lesser rains earlier in the week,
A CLOUD BUItST.
From the best information obtain
able it is evident that something in
the nature of a cloudburst roust have
been the culmination of tho struggle
of the water against the embankment.
The course of tho torrent from the
broken dam at the foot of the lake at
Johnstown is almost eighteen miles,
and with the exception of one point,
(he water passed through a narrow
‘V” shaped valley. Four miles below
thd dam lay the town of South Fork,
where tbe Hnuth Fork itself empties
into Conemaugh river. The town
contained about 2,000 inhabitants.
Four miles farther down on the Cone-
maugh river, which runs parallel
with the main line of the Pennsylvania
railroad, was the town of Mjner.il
Point. It had 800 inhabitants, 90
per cent, of the houses being on a flat
and close to the river. Six miles far
ther down was the town of Cone
maugh, and here alone was there a
topographical possibility of the spread
ing of the flood and tho breaking of
its force. This town contained 2,500
Woodvnle, with 2,000 people, lay q,
mile below Conemaugh in a flat, and
one mile farther down were Johns
town and its cluster of sister towns,
Cambria City and Conemnugliborough,
with a total population of 30,000. On
made ground, and stretched along
the right at the river verge, were the
immense irou works of the Cambria
Irou and Steel Company, who have
85,000,000 invested in their plant.
Besides this there at-p |n,any other
l'a r £;o industrial establishments op the
bank of the river.
The calamity was as singular as fa
tal. . It is very evident that many
lives have been lost by the foolish in
credulity of the people, who were
heedless of the warnings of dauger.
For more than a year there were fcar«
of an accident of just such a character
as the one that has happened. The
foundations of the dam were consid
ered to be shaky early last spring,
and many increasing leakages wore
reported from time to time, according
to people who live in Johnstown and
other towns on the line of the river.
Ample time was given to the John
town folks by the railroad official* uml
by other gentlemen of standing and
reputation. Iu dozens, yes, hundreds
of cases, this wanting was utterly dis
regarded, aud those who heeded it
early in the day were looked upon as
cowards, and many jeers were uttered
by lips that are now cold among the
rank grass by the river. One poor,
nameless woman who looked with
sightless eyes at gray clouds, trout
the slimy bank of a meadow below
New Florence, wore a smile that per
haps had its birth in that spirit of
“Whose afraid!’’ which has itad such
A BITTER FEELING.
There has grown up a bitter feeling
among the surviving sufferers against
those who owned the lake and dam,
and damage suits will be plentiful
by and by. The dams in Stony creek,
above Johnstown, broke about noon
yesterday', aud thousands of feet of
lumber passed down the stream.
“How can anybody tell how many
arc dead?" said a railroad engineer to
me this morning. “I have been at
Sang Hollow with my train since 1L
o’clock yesterday', and 1 have seen
fully 500 persons lost in the flood.”
G. W. Each, a brave railroad em
ploye, saved sixteen lives at Ninevnh.
A HUNDRED ROASTED ALIVE.
The most awful culmination of the
awful night was the roasting of 100
or more persons in mid-flood. The
ruins of houses, out-buildings and
other structures swept against the
new railroad bridge at Johnstown,
and from an overturned stove or some
such cause, the upper part of the
wreckage caught fire. There were
crowds of men, women and children
on the wreckage, aud their screams
were soon added to tho awful chorus
of the horror. They were literally
roasted in the flood. Soon after the
fire burned itself out others were
thrown against the mass. There were
fifty people in sight when the ruins
suddenly parted and broke up, and
the unfortunates were swept under the
bridge into the pitchy darkness. Tho
latest news from Johnstown is that
Hut two houses can be seen in the
town. I>. is also said that hut three
houses remain iu Cambria City.
