HEWING A CHANNEL TO
.LET FERRY INTO HARBOR
Crew of 15 Men Put to Work to Res
cue the Robinson This
A crew of 15 men was set to work
this morning to cut a channel in the
ice in order that the ferry J. T. Rob
inson may be towed into the harbor at
the Kahlke boat yards.; The ferry, as
stated yesterday, became stranded In
the ice about two hundred yards out
side of the harbor, and all attempts to
get the steamer into the yards failed.
It became evident last evening that
there would be only one method of
getting the boat into the harbor, and
accordingly the crew of ice cutters
was put to work this morning. The
boat will probably be on dry dock
before morning. The steamer was
kept in service until yesterday morn
ing, when she was taken down the riv
er. At the Crescent bridge she be
came fast in the ice. but was released
shortly by the motion of the ice. The
gorge at the harbor prevented en
trance and the movement of the ice
carried the boat farther down stream
away from the harbor.
The railway traffic is still suffering
on account of the storm, and the trains
from the west are considerably behind
the schedule. Trains from the east
were delayed last evening and this
morning, and the whole schedule has
been moved backward several hours
by the delays occasioned by the storm
The telephone and telegraph service
was in good condition again today,
and the damage done by the storm is
almost entirely repaired.

ARSENAL CAR IS STALLED
ON SYLVAN SLOUGH BRIDGE
Workmen Have Perilous Experience
- During Tuesday Even
A peculiar, yet serious, accident oc
curreu luesuay evening to the car
which was carrying workmen from
Rock Island arsenal to the city.
When the car, which was heavily
laden, reached the middle of the bridge
across the Sylvan water at Forty-sec
ond street, the snow piled up in front of
the wheels and prevented further pro
gress. The bridge Is a narrow one, just
wide enough for the rails, and there the
car stood, unable to go either forward
or backwards, while inside the men
grew colder and colder until it was im
posible for them to stand it longer.
Then, at a great risk of a fall, they left
tho car. swinging themselves out the
end. and began to crawl across the
bridge. The trip was attended with
great danger and suffering. A strong
wind threatened momentarily to blow
them to the ice a dozen feet beneath,
and the men had to cling with all their
strength to the bridge to prevent sus
taining a fall, which would have meant
at least broken bones. Slowly they
worked their way across and when the
shore was reached an inventory showed
several frozen fingers, ears and noses
Although all got through the episode
without serious injury, none of them
care about experiencing such a time
