MADE LONG JUMP
Weather Changed From April to
January Variety Within
DROP OF ABOUT 50 DEGREES
Severest Storm of Winter Follows
Close Upon Record Breaking
From April back to the 22nd day of
January is a long leap to make in 3G
hours, but that is the species of gym
nastics the weather has been up to
since Saturday night. From Saturday
till this morning the drop in tempera
ture was about 50 degrees with the
prospect of a still further decline at
least to the zero point.
The change in weather has been ons
of the most unique on record. From
balmy spring-like conditions which
broke local marks for -the month, to
cold as severe as has been experienc
ed during the winter, accompanied by
the heaviest ftiow of the year, all with
in 3G hours, is remarkable, even in
this changeable clime. Saturday ev
ening it was so warm that it was un
comfortable to wear wraps, and peo
ple actually sat on their porches. It
would not have been much of a sur
prise to have heard a mosquito buzzing
about. No one would suggest mos
quitoes or even piazzas or absence of
Snow 't TronblrHomr,
There was a heavy fall of snow dur
ing the night and forenoon and it drift
ed badly. The street railway com
pany's tracks were kept open and cars
were on schedule time. The steam
roads, too, made a good showing.
The greatest trouble was with the
wires, yesterday's sleet and rain freez
ing on them and causing damage.
Service in the city wag not so seri
ously crippled as that out of town.
Most of the railway and the Postal
and Western Union telegraph wires
were out of commission during the
day, and it was exceedingly difficult to
get and keep connections.
The ferry, which had a busy day of
it yesterday, retired to the boat yard
last night and did not reappear today

Project Comes to Rock
Julius A. Harmon, representing
Piece Underwood of Chicago is in the
city for the purpose of interesting lo
cal capital in a syndicate which has
foe its object the Hoosac Tunnel-and
Mining company of Colorado, a corpo
ration'-with 'a capital of $1,300,000
whose project is the completion of the
construction of an immense transpor
tation mountain tunnel with over 300
producing mines in Colorado. The un
dertaking is a gigantic one, but Mr.
Harmon says that the enterprise has
advanced sufficiently to demonstrate
not only its practicability, but its sue
cess as a financial venture.
DAVENPORT GETS BENEFIT
Freight Reduction in Illinois to Apply
Across the River.
Davenport is also to be benefited by
the reduction in freight tariffs that re
cently went into effect in Illinois. For
a couple of weeks Rock Island and
Moline had the advantage and that led
to the business men across the river
to bestir themselves. A new tariff is
now being arranged by the Rock Island
road giving Davenport the same" reduc
tion, 20 per cent, on first, second, third
fourth and fifth classes, as is in force
on this side of the river. Other roads
will have to meet this reduction.

Miss Perpetua A. Major, one of the

Miss Major, who resides at 619
Twenty-third street, was walking west
ward on Ninth avenue. Near the alley
between Twenty-first and Twenty-second
streets one of her rubbers became
fast in the mud, and as she was replac
ing it her handbag was snatched by a
man who had been following her. The
robber made his escape down the alley.
Miss Major had noticed the man walk
ing behind her, but paid no particular
attention to him. When she stopped

ICE MAN MORE HOPEFUL
AS MERCURY GOES DOWN
While Statistics Are Against Him Fact
Remains February is Often Gold
The ice man is once more hopeful.
With a continuation of this visitation
of frigidity for a few days he can be
gin his harvest with a fair prospect
that there will be a month or more of
favorable weather in which to complete
it. While it is a fact that the average
lowest temperature during the past 25
years in this vicinity has been on the
9th and 10th of January, with an aver
age of 1G degrees, during late years
much of the coldest weather has come
in February. Last year it was in
groundhog month that the mercury
went down to 25 below. It is natural
to look for compensation somewhere
along the line and with the early half
of the winter open it is natural to look
for chilly blasts in the latter part.
