Ten Persons Known to Have

Starvation and Thirst in
St>ecial to the Globe.
Tacoma, Wash., Jan., 20.—
Northern Pacific has suffered very little
this winter by snow driits, as compared
with the more southern routes, and
there is no blockade. Passenger trains
get through four to ten hours late.
Most of the trouble has been on the
Idaho division in the mountain passes.
There has been no Chicago and Eastern
matter for eight days, but this matter is
si-sit via Portland a.;d the Union Pacific,
on which road there are many trains
snowed in at various points. TheOkan
agan country is covered over with two
feet of snow, and the blizzard which
began with the year and lasted five days
caused a large amount of damage to
property, killed much live stock and
caused the death of at least ten men.
William Jewett, who keeps a stage sta
tion about twelve miles from Alma, on
the Colville reservation, started to cross
the prairie and was frozen to death.
The mail carrier from Wilber went out
the same day to go to Wild Goose Bill
Ferry and oenshed in the stoim. Cattle
are dying by the hundreds on the reser
vation. The ranchmen calculate that
they will lose one half of their stock, this
season, but 75 per cent would be nearer
the true estimate.
MOUNTAINS OF WHITE FLAKES
Nearly Every Railroad in the West
CniCAGO, Nov. 20.— The snow block
ade in the West and Northwest is one
of the most complete on record. Not
only has travel become an impossibility
on the Western divisions of the Central
and Southern Paciiic, but the telegraph
companies are equal sufferers, and
every through wire is down on both
these routes. The only means of tele
graphic communication with the Pacific
coast now is by the indirect route of the
Southern . Pacific, ami the volume
of business trans: ced is neces
sarily limited. Washington and
Oregon are shut off from com
munication with the entire world, with
the exception of one little zigzag wire
that still ticks feebly between San Fran
cisco and Portland. When this wire
goes down these two Northwestern
states w 11 be further away from New
Yorktnan China, so far as telegraphic
communication is concerned, as the
trains are not running and the snow
blockade renders it impossible for the
telegraph force to reach the scene of
the break. The Western Union repair
ers are snowed up at a half dozen points
in the West, and there is little prospect
of renewed communication i until the
railroads have mastered the elements.
The snow blockade on the Central Pa
cific road is at Emigrant Gap, near the
summit of the Sierras. Last night eight
'i?;- *-?**'" TRAINS WERE SNOWED IN
and the prospects of the road being
opened in the next forty-eight hours are
poor, as the snow plows cannot work
through the freezing ice and the force
of shovelers is inadequate. There are
.1,500 men at work, but as the snow is
seven feet deep on the level and fath
omless in the cuts, the work of clearing
the tracks while the snow falls is a tre
mendous labor. On the Southern Pa-'
cific there is a complete snow blockade
at Sisson's. near Mount Shasta. Col.
Fi ed Crocker, of the Southern Pacific,
who was going North, has been snowed
in there for three days in a special
train and hopes to get out to-morrow.
The Southern Pacific road has been
badly injured in the Tehachapi moun
tains by washouts, and beyond Los An
geles the floods have done much dam
age. The only unobstructed road now
are the Atlantic & Pacific, and
Northern Pacific. but as this de
pends on the Southern Pacific connec
tions between the Mojave desert and
San Francisco, and on the washout
Southern Pacific line between Los An
geles and San Francisco, travel on that
may also be del-fed at any moment, as it
has been raining heavily in Southern
California for days past, while it is
snowing in the North.
NO MAILS FOR A WEEK.
Union Pacific Lines in Oregon
". Covered by the Beautiful.
Portland, Or.. 20 —For some days
past there has '>"'*n a heavy snow
blockade on the Union Pacific trunk
and branch lines between Huntington
and Portland. There have been no
through trains for nearly a week past,
and .. consequently no Eastern mails.
Hitler cold weather has prevailed most
of the time, accompanied by heavy
winds and blinding snow storms. Five
or six trains, both east and west-bound,
are blockaded somewhere between The
Dalles and Baker City. The company
has been doing everything possible to
open the roads and keep them open. It
is thought the first west-bound train
will reach this city early to-morrow
morning with passengers and mail.
The weather remains, however, cold
and threatening. The same condition
of affairs have prevailed over the South
ern Pacific, and in the northern part of
California trains are blockaded in the
Siskiyou mountains so that communica
tion has been entirely cut off. No
tnrough trains arrived at Portland from
San Francisco or left here here for that
point in nearly a week. No trains are
expected to reach here before the middle
of this week. Heavy storms both east
and south have prostrated the wires,
and telegraphic communication has
been interrupted most of the time. On
the Northern Pacific, however, trains
have been arriving at and departing
from Tacoma regularly. On that . line
there has been very Utile interruption.
In a few days, unless another heavy
snow storm occurs, it is hoped that busi
ness will be moving in all directions on
So far as known there is no interrup
tion of through or local trains over the
Northern Pacific lines. Trains have
been running with but slight interrup
tion. Lata reports this evening from
along the line of the Union Pacific state
that that line is practically free from
i snow and ico. Three trains are vow !

on their way to this city from Baker \
City, ami there is every reason to hope
they will reach Portland with mails and
passengers to-morrow forenoon. No
trains left here eastward bound over
the Union Pacific road for reveral days
owing to the blockade. Thiou.h trains
will probably start East to-morrow, or
soon as the road is opened.
DRIFTS TWENTY FEET HIGH
Dozens of Trains snowed in on
the summit of the Sierras.
San Francisco, Jan. 20.— The snow
blockade on-the Central Pacific, in the
vicinity of Truckee and Emigrant Gap.
has become very serious. Since Tues
day last no Eastern overland . train has
been able to reach a point further west
than Colfax. At present east-bound
trains are at Sacramento, Colfax and
Shady Hun. At Truckee the depth of
the snow ranges from eight feet to drifts
of twenty feet. The railroad company
has several hundred men at work shov
eling east of the towu. The plow was
only able to go a mile when it
stuck with ten engines. The shov
elers wer<i called to the rescue, and
after several hours' worK dug them out
so they could return. On Hie west end
the road is filled with drifts fifteen to
thirty feet. The plow, with five en
gines, was on the road thirty-six hours
trying to reach a tunnel, eight miles
from town. The whole crew returned
on foot, having abandoned the train, as
they became ravenous with hunger.
Another plow, with twelve locomotives,
started out to clear the road to Summit,
bnt before they had run two miles they
were securely blocked, and the snow
falling back on them, they were fast in
both directions. Passengers are quar
tered at the hotels by the railroad com
pany. Yesterday afternoon it began
snowing again, and reports from block
aded trains at Emigrant (Jap showed
cleared portions of the track were
again filling fast. Railroad officials
declare that the present blockade
is the heaviest and longest they have
experienced for over ten years The
delay seriously affects mail facilities.
No Eastern mail has reached this city
since last -Tuesday. The Western
Union Telegraph company has a large
force of men in the mountains clearing
the wires of snow. The telegraph lines
in some places are entirely buried under
drifts. Passengers are suffering from
cold and a large number of cases ot in
fluenza are reported. The situation is
equally serious on the California & Ore
gon road in the northern part of this
state. A train which left here Tuesday
evening tor Portland is still at Redding.
Shovelers who were working south from
Dunsmiiir returned alter forty-eight
hours work. One engine was brought
in; the others wer/ snowed in without
wood or water. The officials expect to
have the roads open to-morrow north
SHOCKED IN . O I-/lERNITY.
An Errand of Mercy Results in
. Newb-RG, N. V., Jan. 20.— About
8:30 o'clock this morning a horse be
longing to Mr. Delano, of Baimville,
was standing on Water street, fastened
to an awning post by a halter, the rope
being tied about the post, the connec
tion with the headgear of the horse be
ing by a snap. Suddenly the horse was
seen to drop on its knees and then to go
, down entirely. Thomas Dawson, a la
borer, standing near by, rushed to assist
the horse, thinking the animal had
slipped while pawing the slippery pave
ment, or was ill. As Dawson grasped
the headgear of the horse he was seen
to fall forward, his head striking agaiust
the iron awning post. Robert Salts, an
other laborei sprang to pick Dawson up.
when he, too. was kno.-i-.ed down. By
this time a crowd had gathered, and the
several incidents recorded warned them
that it was a case of grounded electric
light wire. The company's office was
notified, and the current shut off. Daw
son was picked up. and carried to a
neighboring store. He was dead, the
shock having occasioned instantaneous
death. There was a perceptible smell
of burning flesh, and an examination of
the man's body revealed the fact that
the current had been received on the
left side of the head, which had rested
against the awning post. The neck was
blistered, hair singed, and the ear badly
burned. Salts was slightly paralyzed in
the lower limbs. The horse was not
seriously injured. The coroner is pre
p-ring to hold an inquest. Dawson
leaves a widow and three children.

Helena, Mont., Jan. 20.— The answer
of State Auditor Kenney to the applica
tion of William Thompson, one of the
Silver Bow county Republican contest
ants for a seat in the house of repre
sentatives, to compel him to audit
Thompson's claim for salary and mile
age, was tiled in the supreme court to
day. The state auditor's answer is dif
ferent trom the one he tiled in the
Roberts case, which was tried before
Judge Hunt in the district court. In
the Roberts case the auditor declined to
issue a certificate for salary and mile
age for the reason that - Roberts' seat
was contested and that his state election
certificate was illegal. In the Thomp
son case the auditor admits the plain
tiff's legal election, ■*' the organi
zation of the house and his serv
ice, but alleges as a reason
for the non-issue of a certificate that no
appropriation has been made by the leg
islature for tlie payment of members'
salaries. Arguments will be made to
morrow. Chief Justice Blake, who as
chairman of the state canvassing board
issued Thompson's certificate of elec
tion, announced to-day that he would
not sit in the case. The decision in this
case is expected to settle the question ,
of the validity of the two houses San
ders and Power, who were elected
United States senatois by the Republi
cans, are supposed to be waiting for
this decision before going to Washing
ton. The Republicans claim that, if
the Republican senators can show the
United States senate that the house
which elected them was the legal one,
and so decided by the supreme court of
the state, there will tie little doubt as to
the outcome of the senatorial contest.
MORE TROOP.--. Alii. NEEDED:
Boomers Are Preparing to Invade

Special tc the Globe.
- Pierre, S. D., Jan. 20.— The hun
dreds of boomers in this city who aro
anxiously waiting news of the Issuance
of the president's proclamation opening
the Sioux reservation to settlement
have thoroughly organized for a con
centrated movement to occupy the land
the minute the wires bring word from
Washington that the proclamation has
been issued. The South Pierre boom
ers have reorganized, and will again try
to occupy the townsite they failed to
get some time since, and Fort Pierre
citizens are making preparations to
guard against another invasion. They
have called for I morn troops from Fort
Sully, and it is understood that two
more companies will be stationed at
Fort Pierre at once to protect settlers
on the mile square and preserve order
when the rusn begins. l To-day a special
came in over the Northwestern railroad
bearing a number of the headmen of
that company. They took carriages,
and were immediately driven across tin*
the river. They h ive been operating on
the mile sq.iare all day, which, taken
together with the recent notice from
President Marvin Hughitt. that the
Northwestern railroad claimed the mile
square under a government treaty, gives
color to the belief that the railroad com
pany is arranging to take possession of
the entire townsite immediately upon
the issuance of the president's proclama
tion. Black Tomahawk, the Indian pre
emptorof the mile square.has complied

will enforce his rights with all the
power of the Sioux nation if necessary.

however, for Baer waived examination.
Ihe startling tact was then developed
that Baer's attorney, Graves, dictated
ihe warrant on wnich the prisoner is

the second degree, the offense was bail
able. Prosecuting Attorney Jones
asked leave to amend the complaint,
and Justice Curry said it would
be necessary to draw a new com

"1 assume that yon will not deny that

But in those long-gone days it was a

even chance of life for life. To-day I
am ground in the dust, under the

me as a conspirator against the revenues

CANDLER IS CHAIRMAN.
Speaker Reid Appoints the
World**) Fair Committee.
Washington. Jan. 20.— The speaker
to-day appointed the world's fair com
mittee, as follows: Candler, of Massa
chusetts; Hitt, of Illinois; Bowdeu, of
Virginia; Belden, of New York; Frank,
of Missouri; Springef,of Illinois; Hatch,
of Missouri;. Wilson, of West Vir
ginia, and Flower, of New York.
The committee will get to work
as soon as possible. The interests of
the tour cities competing for the loca
tion of the fair are supposed to l»e thor
oughly represented on the committee.
The representatives of each city were
asked to name two members of the com
mittee, and the speaker named the
chairman. The West did not want
the appointment of Mr. . Candler,
who is supposed to be in favor
of an Eastern location for the fair, but
there is no serious objection to the ap
pointment now that it has been made.
A proposition will be made before the
committee at* its first meeting that a
scheme for tho organization of the fair
be agreed upon, and the time for holding
the fair be fixed before the question of
locating the site is taken up. The fear
Is expressed that if the site for the
fair is chosen before the appropria
tion or loan has been agreed upon, the
friends o the disappointed cities will
put obstacles In the way of : the passage
of the Dill establishing the fair. It is
altogether likely, therefore, that the
question of location will be taken up
last, It is a common belief, growing
every day, that the fair will not be held
in 189-2, and a great many persons are
inclined to favor 181)5 as a desirable

He Denies That Hayes Was Mad-
President by Fraud.
Washington, Jan. 20.— The feature
of to-day's senate proceedings was the
speeches and political debate of Sen
ators Pasco and Chandler on the para
graph in the president's message re
specting federal control of elections.
After routine business, the introduction
of bills and favorable reports from com
mittees providing for the admission of
Wyoming and for a temporary form of
government for Oklahoma, Mr. I'asco
addressed the senate on the subject of
federal control of elections. Recon
struction measures and the work of
army officers, freed man's bureau agents,
camp followers and stragglers, he said,
were efforts of the Republican party to
build up a Southern "annex" to their
party, and thus prolong its lease of
power. It had turned out to be a rope
of sand, and now the attempt was to be
made to sieze the electoral machinery of
the states. • Tha message of the presi
dent, he said, had contained no syllable
in favor of free and honest elections,
except as to the suppression of the votes
of colored people in the South. There
was no evidence before the country of
such suppression. None had been com
municated to congress. It was simply a
matter of inference. He presented
some election statistics from Eastern,
Western and Southern states, to prove
that "the silent voter is increasing in
every section of the country." In con
clusion lie stated that his voice and vote
would be given in favor of standing by
the METHODS of ELECTION
which had come from the days of Wash
ington and Jefferson. Mr. Chandler
followed Mr. Pasco. That senator, he
sain, had complained of the character
of some citizens of the South, who had
come . North as witnesses concerning
political outrages in that section; and
had also had something to say about the
silent voter. There was one citizen of
Florida, said Mr. Chandler, who will
not come North to testify concerning
political outrages, and who might be
termed a "silent voter." That man was
John Burr, a colored citizen of Madison
county, Fia., who in October last, hav
ing been to Jacksonville as a wit
ness concerning political outrages, was
killed on his return to Madison county
by the Democrats of that county oil
account of the testimony which he had
given. Mr. Chandler also referred to
the driving by masked Democrats from
his home iv Jefferson county, Fia., of J.
G. Cole because he was a prominent Re
publican, and read extracts on the sub
ject of that outrage from articles in the
New York Tribune, the Monticello
(Fia.) Constitution, the Gainesville (Fia.)
Advocate and the Milwaukee Sentinel.
He hoped Mr. Pasco would inform the
senate whether he did not consider such
transactions as these reasons why it
would be wise and judicious for the gov
ernment of the Uniteci States to pass
some law for the protection of Repub-
I c in voters and for fair elections in the
South for Republicans in congress, He
also reminded Mr. Pasco of other .
POLITICAL MUKDEUS AND OUTRAGES
in Florida, going as far back as-lbdl. If
there was any one state that needed the
benefit of a federal law in connection
with congressional elections, it was the
state of Florida. He submitted to Mr.
Pasco whether he had not better, under
the circumstances, waive his objection
to national interference in elections
and to the passage of a nat onal election
law that would, at least, secure elec
tions in Florida that would lie (for once
in the history of the state) both honest
and peaceful. Mr. Pasco, in a rejoin
der, said he would not fo low Senator
Chandler through his tamhlings from
his scrapbook. but he expressed the be
lief that the elections in Flor
ida, ever since the memorable one
of 1876. were as fair, as peaceful ana
as quit as they were in New England,
It was not surprising that there were
some irregularities there then, because
Mr. Chandler bad been one ot the prin
cipal agents in the Florida election
fraud in 1876, and the demoralization
resulting from that had not entirely dis
appeared. The allusion to his course in
Florida in 1870 brought Mr. Chandler to
his feet again, and he denied the charge
that he had approached the chairman of
the state canvassing board and had
promised that if Florida was canvassed
for Hayes the majority of the returning
board - . .-? - r y -.**--■ ; -"/*-'•
WOULD BE TAKEN CARE OF.
He denied that statement absolutely,
and declared that the friends of Mr.
Hayes had resorted to no extraordinary
means on that occasion. Mr. Pasco said
that the charge had been often mane
and printed, and that this was the first
time that it bad been denied. Mr. In
galls said that it had been his purpose
to address the senate to-morrow on the
general subject discussed by the sen
ators from Alabama (Morgan), South
Carolina (Butler), and Florida (Pasco),
but he was suffering from the conse
quences of the prevailing malady to
such au extent that he should be unable
to do so. He gave notice, however, that
Thursday at 2 o'clock he would move
the consideration of Mr. Butler's bill for
the purpose of making some observa
tions thereon. The senate then pro
ceeded to the consideration of executive
business, and at 4 p. m. adjourned.
Among the other bills introduced
were the following: By Mr. Pettigrew
—To provide for building and maintain
ing an Indian industrial school at Flau
