CHICAGO, Jan. 8. Scarcely a dent
has been made in the great accumula

; the blizzard of Sunday. The life of the
city, literally from the cradle to the
: grave, has been affected for babies
have felt the milk shortage and fun-
! erals have been postponed because of
inability to reach the outlying" ceme-
teries. The first attempt to run a fu-

afternoon. It was regarded as hope

HAD 125 WITH WHICH
TO SEE THE WEST ID
LANDED II JAIL
A. G. Scrivner, a Kansas City, Mo.,
youth and the Bon of a prominent
stockman of that metropolis, left home
to "See the West" on $25 he landed
in the Ogden city Jail.
Scrivner was arrested Saturday
afternoon by Sergt. Jerry Kelliher and
Oflicor Pete Naylin, on the charge of
issuing a spurious $10 check on the
Ogden State bank. He pleaded guilty
this morning when arraigned in mu
nicipal court. Judge George S. Barker,
presiding, took congnizance of the de
fendant's youth and inexperience and
sentenced to only ten days.
The court, after hearing the boy's
explanation that ho had a ticket and
$25 and came out merely "to see the
west," and Sergt. Kelliger's statement
that the defendant apparently did not
realize the seriousness of the offense,
made the sentence as light as possible.
Scrivner also admitted to giving other
small checks but stated that he had
written his father for funds and would
settle with his victims. '
"Well, ten days will give you time
to think It over," said the court.
"Twenty-five "dollars is a mighty small
amount with which to 'see the west'
the west in a pretty big domain."

IILMO HIES TO
BE OB FURTHER
Just what is going to happen to
western railroads as a result of fed
eral control continues a puzzle, admit
ting of any description of speculation.
Thomas F. Rowlands, of ttjp South
ern Pacific, W. A. Whltnoy, of the U.
I. C, and J. H. Dodds, of the Ogden
torminal company,. returned last night
from Salt Lake whore thoy, with othr
railroad ofilelals, were in conference
with H. B. 'Piatt, general manager of
the Oregon Short Lino. Mr. Piatt call
ed the meeting as tho personal repres
entative of William Sproulo, general
manager of the Southern Pacific with
headquarters in San Francisco and In
chargo of the intermountain region
for Socretary McAdoo.
It is understood that the meeting
yesterday was a. re-discussion or "re
hash" of the three previous meetings
of the railroad chieftains with Mr.
Piatt. Absolutely nothing of a definite
nature was accomplished and no rec
ommendations prepared for report to
President Sproule. It is probable,
however, that Mr. Piatt will make a
detailed report which will include the
suggestions made during the series of
meetings. Before Mr. Sproulo can act,
though, he will bo compelled to report
to Secretary McAdoo and the railroad
war board and receive official instruc
tions. According to reports, the Salt Lake
City conferences have confined them
selves wholly to probable change of
train schodules and terminal supervis
ions which might tend to expedite tho
movement of freight. It is understood
that the question of closing up -town
ticket offices and similar questions
have not been mentioned except in tho
merest incidontal manner. The chief
concern of the conferences has been
probable abandonment of parallel pas
senger trains on competing lines. Final
action may be taken upon theso mat
ters and a final recommendation made
following a meeting that, perhaps, will
bo called by Mr. Piatt the latter part
of tho week.
Relative to tho tentative Intention of
the Denver & Rio Grande to extend
the morning and afternoon passenger
service now to Ogden which now op
crates from Salt Lake City east, it Is
understood, no special object ionc will
bo made. This increased service would
be only an extension, fixing Ogden as
tho terminus instead of Salt Lake Cltv.
It would require no additional looomo
tlvo or man power.
As a result of the announcement
that up -town ticket.offlces and other
kindred subjects havo not been dis
cussed, railroad circles are returning
to normal. It has been expected at all
times that parallel service would be
eliminated, since all competing lines
wore placed under centralized govern
Local offices yesterday received cop
ies of the first orders issued by Secre
tary McAdoo. following the govern

Tho orders were dated Dec. 28 and Dec.
29 and arrived by mail. They were
nothing more than the formal delivery
of copies of orders telegraphed on date
of Issuance and in direct accord with
President Wllsonjs proclamation tak
ing over, the roads as a matter of cen
tralizing their management, destroy

movement of freight.

NEW YORK, Jan. 7. Industrials,
motors, oils and related specialties
were the prominent features of the
early trading in today's stock market,
advancing from 1 to 6 points. Rails,
coppers and shippings also were mod
erately higher, the entire list Indicat
ing a revival of speculative interest
for tho long account. Trading was
broad with many large individual
transactions, especially In United
States Steel and other leadors. Lib
erty bonds were firmer.
After a brlof pause occasioned by
profit taking, tho market gathered
fresh strength. The further rise ac
companied tho announcement that tho

industrials and equipments, almost!
without exception, extended early
