A Terrible Storm Raging Through
the Central Portion of the
It Reaches From Kansas to Ohio
and Is Extending: Rapidly
Street and Steam Railway Traffic Is
Badly Demoralized—The Gale
CHICAGO, Feb. 18.—A blizzard of the
most approved pattern, with snow,
sleet and an energetic wind, swept
down on Chicago Sunday night and has
raged with constantly increasing vio
lence. Great snowdrifts blocked the
streets, suburban trains were delayed
and snow sweepers were kept inces
santly in use to prevent stoppage of the
street car lines, traffic on which was
badly delayed. The blizzard is the most
severe that has visited Chicago for
many years. •..:',.,..••
At noon the wind was blowing at the
rate of 70 miles an hour, with indica
tions that the storm would continue
through the night, with the coldest
weather of the year. All incoming
trains were from an hour to two hours
late, and the roads were becoming
worse blocked all the time.
The wind rushed around the down
town corners with terrific force, carry
ing pedestrians off their feet and injur*
ing many. Jane Brahany was hurled
against a fireplug at Dearborn and Van
Buren streets and fatally injured. Many
carriages on Michigan avenue, where
the wind sweeps straight off the lake,
were overturned. Lake Michigan was
lashed into a fury, and the waves rushed
over the breakwater and swept clear
across the Illinois Central railroad track
into Lake Front park.
So severe was the storm that at the
public schools only about one-third of
the pupils were present. At many of
the schools teachers were absent as well
as scholars. At the Hammond school,
but 85 pupils were present out of 900,
and reports from other schools showed a
One of the large observation windows
in the Leland hotel was blown in and
several guests narrowly escaped injury
by the falling glass. All of the mail
trains coming into Chicago were se
riously delayed. Several of the city de
liveries were abandoned and the mail
service generally demoralized. Tele
phones and telegraph wires suffered se
verely. Many wires were torn from
their fastenings, poles were blown down
and many crossed currents injured the
Charles Chash, driver of a bakery
wagon, was probably fatally injured,
the wind overturning his wagon on
Eighty-second street. His leg was
broken and he received internal injuries.
Three men at the waterworks crib,
four miles out in the lake, were brought
face to face with death. The landing
platform was smashed by the waves,
which washed over the crib's structure,
drenching the imprisoned men. The
telephone line to the station was unin
jured, and the men said that the build
ing was being shaken frightfully in the
wind'and waves. No boat could live in
the storm, and no effort to rescue the
men could be made.
A Wild Northeaster Sweeping the City
From Lake Michigan.
MILWAUKEE, Feb. 13.—A wild north
east gale is sweeping over the city from
Lak Michigan, and the air is full of
penetrating and drifting snow.
The electric lines manage to make slow
progress, but if the storm continues
there will probably be an embargo on
There is an immense sea on the lake—
fully as vicious as that which engulfed
about a dozen men on the waterworks
crib last spring. Previous to the storm
City Engineer Benzenberg consulted
United States Weather Forecaster
Moore in regard to the advisability of
bringing in the men now at work
upon the crib, and it was finally decided
that they were in no danger. There are
20 men in the crib house at present, but
it is thought that they are all right.
Should the worst come and the crib
house be swept away, they can enter the
air lock, which is above the water level.
No anxiety is felt for their safety.
Advices from the interior of the state
are to the effect that the storm is raging
everywhere and that railway travel is

Broke All Records.
KANSAS CITY, Feb. 13.—After contin
uing for 24 hours and breaking all
records recorded by the local weather
bureau, the blizzard suspended opera
tions at 10 a. m., so far as the snow ac
companiment is concerned. A brisk
wind still blows from the north, and
though the mercury is not low, being 14
degrees above zero, the indications are
for much colder weather.
The snow lies 16 inches on the level,
gnd is badly drifted. All street car
traffic is su. .ended. All trains both
from the east and west are greatly de
In the State of Kansas the storm was
similar to that in the city, and was fully
as energetic. The heaviest fall of snow
occurred in the eastern portion of the
state, and the lightest fall in the west.
In the eastern portion the snow lies
from 12 to 16 inches deep, while in the
western portion the depth is from 7 to
12 inches. Street car and railroad travel
is almost suspended throughout the
state. Passenger trains between Hutch

FOKT WAYNE, Ind., Feb. 13.—A gen

rages with unabated fury. Street rail
way traffic is entirely suspended, and
all railways leading into the city are
Bad at Col ambus, Ohio.
COLUMBUS, O., Feb. 13.—A severe
sleet storm prevails here. The wires
are covered with ice, giving considera

run slower than usual.
Very Severe at Cleveland, Ohio.
CLEVELAND, Feb. 18.—The blizzard
which raged with such severity through
out the West during the night, reached
this city at 7 o'clock a. m. A fierce gale
accompanied by a heavy fall of fine,
cutting snow, is in progress and the
storm promises to be a most severe one.
At noon the street car service was ae
moralized, only an occasional car man*
aging to get through the heavy snow
ST. Louis, Feb. 13.—A special to The
Post Dispatch from Emporia, Kan.,
says: -The worst storm ever known
here has raged for 24 hours.^. Not lessobviates
than two feet, of snow, has fallen, and it
has drifted so that in places it is 20 feet
deep. Railroad traffic is stopped, trains
being snowed in at numerous points.
Thousands of head of cattle are en
dangered, and a great portion of them
will die of cold and lack of food. Wheat
raisers see agleam of hope, in that the
snow covers their crops and protects
THE BLACK BOAT
Which Has Figured in Many Robberies
Captured by the Authorities at Rye.
N EW YORK, Feb. 13.—The black boat
which has figured so prominently in the
many robberies along the shores of the
sound is at last in the grasp of the au
thorities at Rye. So is one of her crew
and a large amount of plunder. The
boat first began to be heard of early last
summer. Those who saw her described
her as a sloop of about 20 tons. Her
hull was painted black and she carried
more sail than most Loats of her size
and rig. There were usually seven or
eight men on her, and when seen she
was usually drifting slowly along.
Once or twice attempts were made to
overtake her to obtain a closer view,
but the crew would hoist sail and slip
away from any sailing craft.
Stories about the boat came from al
most every point from City Island east
to New London, Rye, Portchester and
the other villages in Westchester re
ported the doings of her crew. Then
she would be heard from along the Con
necticut shores. First at Saybrook, then
at Stamford, then back to New London,
then at some other point.
Sunday night the black sloop anchored
off Milton's Point at Rye. A boat with
two men in it went ashore, and after
hauling the rowboat up on the beach,
they went to the depot. They had two
bags and on reaching the depot shipped
them for New York. Then they disap
peared. Some men and toys living at
Milton's Point, became curious about
the strange craft, and put off to investi
gate. There was a varied lot of stuff
aboard, which would have stocked a
fair sized country store. This was re
ported to the local police, who at once
started to find the men.
One of them was taken into custody.
The other had started for New York.
The two bags of stuff were seized by the
police acting under orders from Justice
Barusch. The bags were found to con
tain boots and shoes, clothing, spools of
cotton and silk, and many such articles.
These correspond with the goods stolen
from Fort Salonga. The prisoner prom
ised to make a full confession. He ad
mits that the craft is the one which has
been seen so often along the coast.

MANKATO, Minn., Feb. 13.—The last

WASHINGTON, Feb. lo.—A new turn
was given to the silver discussion in the
house by Mr. Bland's announcement
that he would move to amend, at a
later day, the pending bill so that silver
certificates would be issued only as fast
as silver dollars were coined, with the
added authority to the secretary of the
treasury to issue the certificates in ad
vance of the coinage if he so desired.
This change is desired to overcome one
of the main objections of Secretary Car
lisle to the bill. This objection is shared
by many members of the house to such
an extent that the passage of the
seigniorage bill was in doubt. The

Charges Preferred by One Colonel Against
Another at Presidio.
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 13.—Charges
have been preferred by Lieutenant Col
onel Saniue! P. Young against Colonel
William M. '5-raham, commander of the
forces of Pr3sidio, adjoining this city,
and the arrest of Colonel Young, under
ordt:s of Colonel Graham has caused a
furore among army men here and prom
ises a sensation such HS the United
States army has not had l^-many years.
The exact nature of the charges made
by Young against Graham cannot be
ascertained, but it is common report that
Tyrannical and Capricious Conduct
toward his inferiors is charged. Though
Colonel Young is confined to his quar
ters under arrest, the same secrecy is
maintained as to the charges against
him. It is believed, however, that he
will be charged with conduct to the
prejudice of good order and military
discipline. At Presidio no one dares to
talk, but it is apparent that the sympa
thy of officers and men is with Colonel
Young. In an interview in The Call a
high army officer, whose name is with
"It Is a Grand Climax
that had to come sooner or later. If
Colonel Young had not taken it up some
one. else would.
"The commanding officer at this post,
since, assuming-his. charge, has. been,
despotic. Ninety per cent of the officers
at this post will testify, and gladly, to
Colonel Graham's tyrannical, overbear
ing, .suspicious and captious manner.
No one will deny his integrity and brav
ery, but in all, since he has been here,
he has been a tyrant. I do not know
the specific charges brought by Colonel
Young, but, generally speaking, they
are for rude and ungentlemanly conduct
The Outcome Uncertain.
What the outcome will be no one can
tell. I know that Colonel Young courts
trial that he may vindicate himself of
any charges that may be brought
against him. He has an untarnished
record of 30 years service, and it is
lamentable that he should now be sub
jected to humiliation. If this trouble
had been between two captains it would
be summarily disposed of, but the
higher the officials the greater the
scandal and expense of trial. It costs
money to try such cases, and if they are
tried a jury of their superior officers
oannot enforce a sentence. That power
is vested with the president of the United
States, and unless in cases of a very se
rious character the matter is never taken
It is stated that General Ruger has
not yet received a copy of the charges
brought by Colonel Graham against the
officer under arrest, Colonel Young.

Threats of Minister Terrell Accomplish
the Liberation of American Citizens.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Feb. 13.—United
States Minister Alex W. Terrell, after
taking a vigorous stand in the matter
and threatening to ask the United States
government to send one or more war
ships to Iskanderum, Northern Syria,
has succeeded in obtaining the release
of one of two Armenians, naturalized
Americans, who have been imprisoned
there for some time.
Minister Terrell was only informed of
the arrest of the two naturalized Ameri
cans after they were in prison for about
two months, and he immediately de
manded their liberation. The porte
contended that they were Turkish sub
jects, and announced its determination
to maintain its right to keep them in
prison pending their trial for high
The United States minister replied
that if they were not released within a
given time he would ask the United
States government to send two warships
to Iskanderum, with instructions to
compel the authorities to release them.
