LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
NEW MASONIC LAW IN QUEBEp.
Montreal, Jan. 12.—Calls have
boen diatriburtecl for the eighteenth
annual communication of the Grand
Lodge of Quebec on Wednesday,, the
25th inst. Itivill be pfojwfoed- -tbitt
no saloon-It oeper, restaurant-keeper,
who sells intoxicating liquors, or
tavern-keeper or bartender be eligible
for membership in the fraternity of
Freemasons in tho jurisdiction of this
Grand Lodye. Becoming a saloonkeeper, restaurant-keeper, selling
spirituous or intoxicating liquors, or
tavern-keeper or bartender, bo deemed
guilty of a Masonic ofl'unce, the punishment of which shall be suspension
or expulsion from the fraternity and
the erasure of his name from the
roll.
A PRIEST  IN  TROUBLE.
Buffalo, TS. Y. Jan. 12.—Father
Francis Dent pleaded guilty yesterday of sending obscene matter through
the mails. He was recently released
from a six months' term of imprisonment for libeling Father Hammill.
MONUMENT JAKE'S WJLX,
Pittsburo, Pa., Jan. 12.—Jacob Gibson died at Loretto recently and bequeathed §1,000 each to 15 widows and
50 orphans of the town, and §20,000 to a
convent there. This last bequest lias
brought to light the fact that for six
years Gibson had been madly in love
with a beautiful nun of tlie convent,
Sister Gertrude. The latter is well
known here as the sister of S. A. Cos-
grave, a broker. Gibson saw Sister
Gertrude walking in thoponventgrounds
one summer morning, six years ago, aud
fell in love on sight. He was infatuated
and haunted the convent, though forbidden the premises by the mother superior, compelling tlio sister to seek
close seclusion. He said he would run
away with her if he could get her out of
the convent. Death only ended his devotion. Gibson made a fortune in California during the gold excitemeut. He
was known as "Monument Jake," from
havhg had his own monument erected in
Loretto cemetery years ago.
NOTRIFLINd WITH HER.
Bahrie, Jan. 12.—A young man
named Jas. Jennet, living jdeap Utopia,
has boen arrested on a capais fin** breach
of promise of marriage. It appears ho
had been paying court to a .young lady
in the same neighborhood, named Maud
Grenctte Briley, to whom it is alleged he
had promised marriage. After a while
his love seems to have grown cold, and
he wrote to Ins inamorta that he intended
to leave for Michigan and bid adieu to
Canada forever. Ho was accordingly
lodged in jail, but was admitted to bail,
his father, a well-to-do farmer, being his
bondsman. The trial will come off at tlie
next assizes,
THE CROWN PKINOE'S THROAT.
London, Jan. 13.—As a matter of
ftict, tbe news that tho crown princo
fainted iB not surprising to thoso who
havo learned the nature of tho disease
and have read tho report tho physicians made some time ago. In this
report the physicians stated that the
patient would for aome time, perhaps
for a few years, appear a strong, robust man, but all tho time the terrible
malady with which he is afflicted would
be undermining his health, and n collapse might be looked for nt nny time.
Ono oil'oct of cancer is to produce an
amentia, nnd this of course weakens
tho patient. This is exactly what has
happened. While tho Prince, as far
aa outward appearance gocs,i3 a healthy
man, ho is slowly becoming a physical
wreck, and littlo by littlo the cancer i3
overcoming his strength and his force
of will. Tho optimistic reports aro
easily explained. Strict orders hnve
boen given that no unfavorable bulletins of the prince's condition aro to
get abroad, aud tho empress instructed
tlio physicians to even color tho reports sent to the emperor as nny bad
news about the prince would endanger
the aged monarch's life, The official
reports that go out to tlio world are
patterned after those that Iho emperor
receives. One cause of tho Kaiser's
present illness is duo to a mora truthful report than usual being allowed to
got to him a few days ago. There i-
no mistaking the truth. The princo is
slowly but surely dying of cancer, nnd
nu amount of favorable statements of
his condition can alter that fact. The
oDicial reports will continuu to bo
given out colored for tho world's reading, bnt once iu a while, like Inst night,
the truth will out and givo nn indication of the real condition of things.

fication of Purcell, in Glengarry.
created great excitemont in political.
circles hero. Tho result is generally
regarded as a great victory for Mc-
Master, and it is believed he will be
roturned at the election, lndepend-
ant men of both parties strongly condemn tho method/! resorted to in the
campaign.
The provincial government will
build a new wing to the court-house at
a cost of §170,000.
Two new religious orders will shortly bo established in Montreal, the
Franciscans and Dominicans. The
former have given instructions for the
purchase of a suitable Bite on which to
establish a nunnery, and the Domini-
cans, w.ho already reside at St. . Hya*. ■
cinthe,are 'expected here some time
next summer.
8TABDE0 THE JAILER.
Toronto, Jan. 14.—Robt. R, Neil,
one of the most desperate convicts iu
tho central prison, stubbed a guard, '
John Rutledge, probably fatally. He
had been unruly and was locked in a
dark cell ull night. 'When the guard
went to take him his breakfast yester- .
day Neil plunged a knife into the officer, the blade entering the groin and
penetrating to a great depth.
IT LOOKS OMINOUS.
Philadelphia, Jan. 14,—A prom*
inent Knight of Labor said this, morning: "We aro in this 6ght to wiri, and
unless the Reading railroad company
comes to terms by Monday every
miner in the Wyoming region will be ■
called out, and they will .leave to a
man." These few words mean a great
deal and wero not idly spoken. The
man who gave utterance to them has
lately figured very conspicuously in
the strike. Every miner in the Wy- •
oming region, numbering from 35,000
to 40,000, will be called out.
THE SOO RAILWAY.
Toronto, Jan. 14.—W. Whyte,  0.'  ■
P. R, superintendent,   of Winnipeg,
gavo a glowin-7 account of the condii-    -
tion of Manitoba ns he found it recently on his trip  with Norman.     VanHorne stated to-day that a rate whieh
would afford the Soo Railway a fair
profit would result in a serious lou  to
the lines centering in Chicago, as the

A RANK PRESIDENT IN  TROUBLE.    .,"'
London, Ont. Jan. 14.—Henry Taylor, ex-manager of Ontario Investment
Association aud president of the Bank
of London, was sent up for trial last
ovening on one of the first charges of
embezzlement The grand jury found
a true bill in his case. He will ask to
have tlie trial postponed till the Spring
assizes.
FRANCIS   ELECTED.
Winnipeg, Jan. 14.—Francis eleo-
tion for St. Francois Xavier by an over
whelming majority. This finished
the Harrison government. There wot
a caucus of ministerialists last evening
and upon counting noses they found
they were in the minority and decided
thut the Harrison government should
tender thoir resignation to Lieut Governor and advise him to call Thos.
Greenway, leader of opposition, to
form a cabinet. They also decided
thnt Norquay should resume the leadership of the conservative party, Hair:
rison having made a regular muddle
of it during his brief cereer as premier.
Norquay will accordingly lead the opposition.
J. H. Earl, West Shefford, P. Q.,
writes: "I have been troubled with
liver complaint for several years, and
havo tried different medicines with little
or no benefit, until I trled"Dr. Thomas'
Kclectric Oil, which gavo me-immediate
relief, and I would say that I have used
it since with the best effect. No one
should be without it. 1 have tried it on

km* failg friliflh Columbian
Saturday Kvcntai. Jan. 14, inns.
Our esteemed cotemporary of the
Onardian is quite mistaken if he
supposes that wo had any intention
to cast doubt upon his assertion that
ho had the names of 14 members of
the provincial legislature pledged to
vote against the government. We
novor expressed any doubt about
the facts, but we cautioned our co-
temporary to keep his 14 well in
hand until the proper moment came
for them to fling themselves upon
the ranks of corruption! We know
well enough that our cotemporary
has alway promised a surprise at
the opening of each session, the nature of which he has usually kept
a profound secret. Tho ultimate
object and effect of these surprises
has always been the samo—the
Overthrow of the government, but
people beyond the charmed circlo
have been left in profound doubt
as to the means by which the thing
would be accomplished. It was
very kind of the organ to relieve its
readers of the intense curiosity
which might have consumed them.
But the government does not seem
to have had the least suspicion of
what was in store for it. On the
very eve of our cotemporary's tragic
announcement about the 14 jumpers under his thumb, the government issued a special Gazette calling
the house for despatch of business
on the 27th inst! If the government had only ki.own about the 14,
it is safe to say thero would have
been no meeting of the house on the
27th. In politics a sense of justice
does not always, unfortunately,
outweigh the desire for self preservation; and we fear there are few
governments that would have deliberately determined, from a sense
of duty, to meet a house 14 of whose
members it knew to be under the
thumb of our cotemporary. If tho
poor fellows are roally there still,
wriggling in accordance with the
will of him whose thumb gives them
shelter, it might be an act of mercy
to relieve them from such an undignified and uncomportable position. Let the house be called together, therefore, without fail.
Commenting upon the public
meeting held in this city last Saturday night, and the principal object
for which it was called, the Vancouver Herald makes some very
sensible remarks, and some which
show that he misapprehends the
state of publio opinion. Referring
to the resolution offered at the meeting, "that all saloons should close
their front doors during divine service on Sunday, and that the back
doors might be allowed to remain
open," Our cotemporary says: "Has
it really come to this, that the people of Westminster cannot dispense
with the use of liquor during one
day in the weekl Such a resolution
tells more about the stagnation and
want of energy and enterprise displayed by the people of that city
than anything else that could be
said or written about them." The
resolution referred to was proposed
by Mr, Grimmer and seconded * by
one of the saloon keepers, but it was
not put to the meeting, and no opportunity was given for the expression of an opinion upon it, Our
cotemporary has no right, therefore,
to presume that it represented the
sentiment of the people of Westminster, or even a very small portion of them. Mr. Grimmer is not
k representative man, and his seconder represented only the class
that ia opposed to any restriction
being placed on the liquor traffic.
The resolution might have received
tho support of that class for tho
purpose of bringing the whole ques
tion into ridicule, but we have a
better opinion of the people of Westminster than to suppose that such
an outrageous proposal would have
been seriously entertained for a
moment. The municipal vote on
Thursday shows clearly that a majority of the people are of opinion
not only that the back doors should
not be kept open on Sunday, but
that the front doors should not bo
open either. That is unquestionably the meaning of the vote, and
may fairly be taken as an expression of public opinion in this city.
Any idiot may get up at a public
meeting and propose a foolish reso
lution. Such a thing might even
occur in the salt water terminus; but
we should hardly feel ourselves
justified in taking suoh an incident
as an index of public opinion. Our
cotemporary then refers to tho fact
that Vancouver has had a Sunday
closing by-law for some time, and
no difficulty is experienced in enforcing it, and that, he believes,
majority of the hotel keepers there
are in favor Af it. this agrees with
the opinion expressed in the Co-
Iumbian yesterday. Let tho license
holders of Westminster try the law
before they condemn it; and wo
shall not be surprised if they find
tt so much better than they imagined thattbey vill become its warmest supporters.

The Black Dottle.
The Macon, Ga., Telegraph tolls the
following true story, that "would fi%
adorn a temperanco lecture." Happening into a millinery store, the reporter noticed _\ lady who wan buying
a hat for her little girl Tho child
made herself sociable with him, and remarked prattling artlessly, "Wo dot
lots o' money now."
"Pupa broke de bottle."
This called for somo explanation on
the mother's part, and she finally related how her intemperate husband
had boon reformed live years before,
at the timo their oldost boy died. This
is tho tale she told, beginning—as tho
story of many a reformed life has begun—at a loved one's death-bed:
The little fellow Blowly turned his
oyes toward his father and said, "I'm
going to die, papa, for I seo the angels
beckoning me to como. This is Christmas morning, papa; please let me see
what Santa Cluus put in my stocking."
My husband went to the mantel and
took down tho little stocking. It was
empty! He stood still und stared ut it
for a minute, and God only knows the
agony of his heart in that short time,
He turned to speak, but our boy would
not have heard him had ttic poor man's
breaking heart allowed him utterance.
Our boy was dead!
The day before New Year's my husband called for the whiskey bottle.
May God^forgive my feelings at that
minute, for I wished that he too, was
doad.    I obeyed him mechanically.
To my surprise, ho took the bottle
in his hands aud, pouring the whiskey
on the ground, said, **- I will drink no
more; and the money I would spend
for whiskey we will put in this bottle,
and all enjoy the contents."
You can imagine how happy I wns!
He had sworn oh" many times before,
but I knew ho was in earncat this
time. Wo mado a calculation, and estimated that whiskey cost him five dollars a week.
Well, it was decided to put live
dollars a week in the bottle for five
years, come what would. Tho time
was out last New Year's Day, and the
big black bottle was broken, and it
contained one thousand dollars. But
this was not all. We saved enough
in that time outside of the bottle, to
buy a littlo home.
"But nre you not afraid in breaking
the bottlo your husband will break his
resolution?"
"No, because we havo sturted another bottle-bank," said the lady with
a happy smile.
Tho husband is a Macon mechanic,
well known, and enjoys tho respect
and esteem of all. He says ho never
knew how much genuine pleasure
there was at home with his loved ones
until he got sober enough toappreciato
it. and to fill and empty, the fat,
blaok bottle.

Kept Down By Drink.
Improvement in the laborer's condition is impossible without cutting down
his drink bills. No social arrangement which man can make can benefit people who get drunk. No matter
what wages you pay a drinking man,
neither his condition nor that uf his
family can be improvod thereby.
There is no use in cutting down the
day's labor from ten to eight hours, if
tho two hours gnined are spent in the
rum-hole. There would be no uso in
making arbitration compulsory, if one
of the parties was likely to be kopt
from obeying the decision by liquor.
There would be no use in handing over
all the property in (he world to labor-
men, if they drink as they do now.
They would soon dissipate it, and
add nothing to the store.
There U no Middle Course.
As a warning to those who lay to
their souls the flattering unction that
though regular drinkers, thoy arc not
drunkards, let the doctor bo heard
further: "To prevent misapprehension, it is well here to state that all
the evils resulting from hereditary
alcoholism may be transmitted by parents who havo never been noted for
their drunkenness. Long-continued
habitual excessive indulgence in intoxicating drinks to an extent fnr
short of pronounced intoxication is not
only sufficient to originate and hand
down tho morbid tendency, but is
much more likely to do so than even
oft-repeated drunken outbreaks with
Intervals of perfect sobriety between,"

Your Children
Are constantly exposed to danger from
Colds, Whooping dough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar to tho throat and
longs. For such ailments, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral, promptly administered, affords speedy relief snd cure.
As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children were
afflicted, we used, during the past winter, with much satisfaction, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral, For this affection, ws
consider this preparation the most efficacious of aU the medicines which have
oome to our knowledge.—Mary Park-
hurst Preceptress, Home for Little
Wanderers, Doncaster, Md.
My children have been peculiarly subject to attacks Of Croup, and I failed to
find Sny effective remedy until I commenced administering Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. This preparation relieves tho
difficulty of breathing and Invariably
cures the complaint.—David G. Storks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
in my family for many years, and
hsve found ft especially valuable in
whooping Cough. This medicine allays
sll irritation, prevents Inflammation from
extending to the lungs, and quickly subdues any tendency to Lung Complaint.
-J. B. Wellington, PlainvlSe, Mich.
I find no medicine so effective, for
Croup and Whooping Cough, as Ayer's
Ohernr Peotoral. It saved the life of my
little boy, only six months old, carrying
him safely through tho worst case of

V A roaring firo in tbe large bux stove

A coal famine is threatened in Vancouver. The explanation given by the
News is that owing to the high price
of ooal at present obtainable in San
Francisco, the estimable monopolists
who control the destinies of the black
diamonds ut the mine prefer to ship
the ooal to that point instead of selling
it to the people of Vancouver.
The str. Yosemite left Victoria on
Thursday morning for this city and
was detained in Plumper's Pais ull
night by the heavy snowstorm and
gale. Yesterday morningsheattempt
ed to enter the river but tho ice wns
too much for her so ahe turned round
and made for Vancouver where tho
freight and passengen wero landed.
At 1 o'clock this afternoon, just as
the Pacific express was pulling out of
Vancouver, nre was discovered breaking out of the station house roof. Mr.
Brown, the ticket agent, gallantly
jumped through the trap dom* in tlie
ceiling and taking off his coat used it
to extinguish the fire, which he succeeded in doing before it hud a chance
to spread.
Smoke or something strongly resembling it seemed to be issuing from
Mount Baker this morning between
6:30 and 8 o'clock. Many old inhabitants claim to have seen smoke rising
from the top of the mountain, and
they are of the opinion thut it was
formerly a live volcano. As the eastern sky was without a cloud at the
time mentioned it is quite possible a
■mall eruption took place.
The Masonic lecture on Monday
night by Dr. Rob Morris will prove of
very great interest to all master ma-
ions, and none should miss it who cm
possibly attend. Visiting brethern
who intend being present and who
have never sat in lodge here should
see Mr. Thos. Mowat, master of
Union Lodge, or some of the officers
tnd be examined, otherwise thoy
will not be permitted to attend as no
board of examiners can be appointed
on that night.
Thursday night was a lively one fur
Victoria firemen. Three times the
fir* alarm summoned the force to duty.
lilt fint fire waa at 9 p. m., and it was
found in ashed in rear of the Cosmopolitan Hotel (vacant). It wus
quickly extinguished, and an investigation showed that the place had boon
•et on fire. At 10 o'clock a tire was
discovered in a cigar storo near Philharmonic Hall. This was squelched,
and pronounced incendiary also. The
third alarm wai rung at 11 o'clock, but
proved to be without cause.
The Westminster MayoHtj*.
Mayor Dickinson's re-election by
acclamation to tho Westminster mayo
ralty is eminently satisfactory. His
popularity is sufficiently attested by
tiio fact, while his management (if tlm
affairs of the city is well known to
have been highly creditable to him.

pulled out threo ringing chours wero

in no fceblo manner. The Misses
Cambio accompanied Miss Black as far
as the junction. The party will be

Ue Didn't Mean It,
If our cotemporary of tho News had
stated at first thut Mr. Chisholm had
broken an engagement with tho Vancouver board of trade by leaving so
early for Ottawa, he would havo
adopted the very course wo suggested.
The original paragraph, of which wo
complained, made no such statement.
It suggested that Mr. Chisholm should
have remained here as long as political questions might urrisu affecting
tho interests of tho constituency; and
it added that "many conflicting
rumors" were about respecting the
cause of his "hasty departure;" leaving peoplo undoubtedly to infer that
Mr. Chisholm's movements wero not
in the public interest. If dissatisfaction lias been created by his departure,
our cotemporary had an unquestionable right to Buy so; but we have heard
of none, and if thero had been any,
the paragraph should not have boon so
worded as to mislead. We can tell
our cotemporary, if ho does not know
it already, that many people hero regard tiio paragraph as uncalled for and
guito out of place under the circumstances.
Krnrly n Fire.
This morning about 10o'clock smoke
wus soon to issue from underneath the
flooring of the dry house of the Royal
City phning mills. Men wero immediately set to work to discover tho
cause and extinguish thu fire. Some
of the flooring was torn up nnd water
poured underneath, but the snn ike
grew denser in spite of all tho efforts
and it was finally ducided to give a fire
alarm. A telephone messugo was sont
to the central office nnd Geo. Pitton-
dreigh, who was on duty at the time,
kicked off his boots, ran to the lire hull
and had given tho alarm iu lo-s than a
minute after the message was recoivod.
The firemen turned out vory promptly
and in exactly ten minutes after tho boll
hud been rung wero at tlie milts and
roady for action. Two streams of water
were turned on the smouldering sawdust,
and in a fow minutes all danger of tho
fire spreading was at an end. Tho firemen, undor Chief Corbett, worked like
Trojans, carrying out lumber and performing other arduous duties. The
origin of the fire is unknown, but it is
supposed tiie sawdust, ovor which the
dryhouseis built, and which has been
lying tlioro for !) years, ignited from
spontaneous combustion. 'I lie citizens
guiic-rally showed a great deal ot anxiety
over the fire, and everyone felt it wonld
be a very serious affair for the city if the
mills hud been burned. The firemen
certainly deserve the highest credit for
the prompt manner in whicli they turned
out and performed thoir duty.
Turn AIhmiI In Fnlritlny.
Coal and wood dealers are a peculiar
lot of people, During the hot weatiier
when everyone olse is light hearted aud
happy, they go about in a manner thut
would lead people to believe they had
met with somo great and suddon
bereavement. As tho summer begins
to decline and the cold wet days of
the fall draw nigh, the coal doulers
begin to brighten upa lit tleand the wood
merchant puts on a brand new smile
that seems just a littlo too sweet to bo
honest. But it's when the renl cold
weather comes on that those patriots
become really happy. When
the thermometer feels chilly and gathers up in a heap at the bottom of thu
bulb aud tries to keep warm, lifo seems
to be one continuous summer's day
with them. But his revenge is complete and the acme of happiness reached when one of those, who, during (ho
warm weather would in mockery express the hope that business was good,
goes to the coal shed, neurly frozen, to
order a half ton of coal. Then tho
long suffering merchant fairly trembles
with the suppressed mirth that convulses his frame, nud as he hands
back the change remarks to tho congested citizen in a most pleasant nnd
off-hand manner, "that coal has gone
up a dollar a ton." The old adage is
true in this instance and it is well to
bear in mind when scoffing at the coal
merchant thnt, ''he who  laughs  lust,
laughs beat."

—Yon Kee showed us a way under
the wharf and roadwuy to his houso
so thut the goods could be removod
unobserved. Yen Keo was to give
warning in the Chinese language if tho
watchman appeared. I thon broke
the cur opon und handed out 2 boxes
and a mat of rice which Ah Shin took
and passed to tho Chinainon below.
Yen Kee then wont to the*cornor of
the street near his house to keep
guard there whilo we gob tho goods
into tho house. Yen Kee opened the
boxes with a hatchet and wo found
they contained whiskey. Yen Kee
said lie would burn tho boxes and koop
watch whilo wa brought over more
stuff. Ah Sinn and myself, along with
two Chinamen went back to the car.
I handed out a number of packages
which we carried over lo Yen Kee's
houso after closing the cur. Wo probably made throe trips in nil in getting the goods over. When the goods
wero all at the house there was DrantB of
rice, 1 box nf soap, 2 cases of whiskey,
1 box continuing bacon and tobbacco
and I bundle of blankets. Tho lamp
chimney and files produced aro thu
ones taken from tho box, I was in
tho house about an hour and a half,
and while Yen Keo destroyed and
burned all tho mats and boxes. We
also divided tho spoils. Wo thon took
4 mats of rice and a caso of whiskey
to another Chinaman's house; Ah Shin
took thu whiskey; I know the house
but I don't know the man's name who
lives thore. The rest of the goods remained iu Yen Kee's house. I got no
share of the steal but was promised
§10 for helping them. Yen Keo said
I might have the blankets nnd towels
as the polico were likely to search his
place beforo mine. I also got a small
piece of bacon, a bar of soup and Sl.
He also gave me a note for $10; the
note produced is the ono he gave me;
he said he would pny it on his return
from Vanconver where ho would bo
for i\ day or two.

A SWEEPING BUZZARD
iulA uml t.tiirm Over a ViikI Extent of
-T'liirilry—Trains nntl ICoiiih RInrlMHl*
St. Paul, Jan. 13.—Yesterday's
storm was, without exception, the
worst ever experienced in the Northwest. Tho snow, two feet on the lovol,
driven by iho fiorco winds, practically
blockaded all the r,iilro;ids. Efforts
aro being mado to get pns3cnger trains
through on tho main linos, but nil
branch trains have boon abandoned,
and it is thought that sniiie of them
may not get through for six weeks.
But it is feurod that the worst is yet
to eome. The wind is blowing hard
over almost all the lines to-day, nnd
the cuts are being filled ns fast as they
can be dug out. The storm of yesterday is now raging in Iowa. Besides
that another storm, or a cor tin uat ion
of the present one, is expected to
strike Minnesota on Sunday, in whioh
case there is no telling what the resuh
will be. It is raging in Idaho to-dny
with the thermometer at various points
along the Northern Pacific Railway
ns low as 10 degrees below zero. Each
company is putting forth every effort
to keen their Chicago line opon, but
even that is nn impossibility. At noon
to-day no trains had como in, the
"Omaha limited" boing reported nearer than nny of the others. It was. nt
Kuapp, Wisconsin, 55 miles east of
Ht. Paul, with a snow-plow stuck in a
drift, Thu officials hoped to see it
reach St. Paul not later than 0 o'eloek
this ovening, but il may not come in at
all tonight, as there are two bad cuts
——i—■———i**—
between Knapp and this eity. Some
little idea of the severity of the storm
and its effect upon Iho roads can be
gleaned from the fact that up to 1
o'clock this morning but two truiun had
come iu on the Milwaukee short line
from the Minneapolis lino and each
was drawn by two engines. At 1 p.m.
tho trains are all making the run each
with two engines. With the exception of these trains and the Sioux City
express over the Omaha line which
came in at 2 a, m., seven hours lato,
not a train has arrived in St. Paul
Bince last night. All tho branch lines
aro closed artd it is feared that the
Mitchell and Pipestone branches will
not be clear for months. The Kansas
City train due at 10 a. ut., tied up
near Sioux City, and a train sent out
last night, has only reached a point
about forty miles east ot St, Paul.
All trains on the western division havo
been abandoned nud no efforts will be
mudo to clear the track until the storm
ceases and the wind fulls. Tho Rook
Island road abundoned all its trains
lust night and up to noon no efforts
woro being made lu move a wheel ex-
copt on the short line trains. The outgoing trains nre abandoned, but the
officials intend to start a through train
to-night unless the reports show this
to bo inexpedient.
On the Northern Pacific road tho
storm is tho most severe ever felt, and
to-day there is a regular blizzard raging
on its western division, with tho thermometer at an unusually low point.
Tlie lust overland train which reached St.
Paul came in on Wednesday afternoon,
and the officials will not offer an opinion
as to when the next one wilt arrive.
The storm extended through Montana,
Dakota and Minnesota. The snow as it
full yesterday was very moist, but not
too wet to drift. The consequence was
that tho truck filled, and when tho temperature fell it froze the Boft snow, and
mado it like ice, Tho outgoing trains
were abandoned last night and no attempt was made to send out anything
to-dny. The train expected to arrive
here last night is, at Clear Lake frozen
up. The Company has concluded it is
useless to try to send out any more
trains, or to even attempt to opon the
road until the storm is over.
Fergus Falls-; Minn., -Tan. 18.—Tho
thermometer registered 20 deg. below
zero here this morning. The schools are
suspended and tho railroads blockaded.
No trains nre expected to arrive boforo
Sunday.
Bismarck, Jan. 13.—The stage that
loft Washbury yesterday morning for
this city and should have arrived lust
evening has not yet beeu heard from, and
is supposed to have been lost in the
blizzard. The stage left here for Winona
thia morning, and great fears aro entertained for its safety. The great blizzard
hns evidently spent its fury in this locality. The wind lust night wus blowing
nt tlie rate of -10 miles per hour, with the
mercury at 25 degrees below rcro. The
thermometer this morning registers 30
below. Farmers who nre in town dare
not venture home, and their families aro
at home hoping they will not attempt to
come homo, The snow drifts in the cuts
on the Northern Pacifio road arc packed
so hard that tho snowplough cannot get
through tliem. The trains are all blocked
in this locality, and it is not expected
that the main line of the Northern
Pacific will bo open before next week.
Winona, Jan. 13.—The hardest night
of the season was lsst night. This
morning all the railroad cuts „nre full,
and uo trains aro moving except as they
dig their own way through tho snow.
Dunmr, Jan. 13.—All the local roads
are badly blocked by yesterday's storm.
The St. Paul und Duluth passenger
train duo at 3:20 p. in. yesterday has
not yet arrived. The limited train
due at 7:20 p.m. last night arrived at 1)
this morning. Tho St Paul nnd Omaha
train due from St, Paul last night has
not yet been heard from.
Look Out for It.—If you are
troubled with a cold or cough, however light the attack, look out for it;
do not allow it to settle on the lungs;
breakup the cough by loosening tne
tough phlegm with Hag-yard's Pectoral Balsam.
