A COLD WAVE
It Is Prevailing Throughout tha
THIRTY-TWO DEGREES BELOW ZERO.
Severe Snowstorms In Montana and Kan
as Trains Stack In Hag; Drifts
' The Coldest Weather oX
Kansas Citt, Mo., Dec. 86. Of all
the sudden changes in weather that
have come to Kansas none have been
as severe as the storm which broke
Sunday and increased in severity-until
the mercury is far below zero at every
point in the state. Wires are down,
the wind blowing SO miles an hour
and snow piling over all the rail
roads. In Missouri the greater forest
growth is affording protection, but
even in this state there is much delay
ing of trains because of the storm. At
4 o'clock Sunday morning the wind
was in the south and a gentle rain was
falling. There was not even a bit of
frost on the streets. About 0 o'clock a
blizzard set in in the northern
edge of Kansas and by 10
o'clock . it had swept as far south
as Dodge City in the west and To
peka on the east. A heavy snowfall
came with it. By 3 o'clock in the
afternoon it had reached the Indian
territory, and reports from Talequah
and Guthrie say that the storm has
struck there. Trains that should have
reached Topeka at 6 o'clock p. m. are
reported stuck in drifts far west of
there, and many trains were aban
doned until morning. At Emporia
there is a train in a drift unable to get
either way. At Philipsbnrg about
1,000 head of cattle in pens are bellow
ing for protection, and the owners un
settled as to whether they should be
relea-sed and allowed to shift for them
selves in the storm. The Santa Fe's
southern branch, running south from
Newton, Kan., is block by wet
snow not far from the territory
line, and an engine has been dispatched
with a snow plow to offer re
lief. The Missouri Pacific is having
trouble somewhere between Greenleal
and Concordia, but wires being blown
down makes it impossible to determine
just what the trouble is. Lyons, Lin
coln, Great Bend, Hays City and
Wakeeny report snow a foot deep on a
level and S and 8 feet in drifts and 10
feet in cuts packed very hard.
Thirty-Two Below Zero.
St.'Paul, Minn., Dec 26. Boreas has
broken bis record for the winter in the
states othe far northwest. The mercu
ry begaryf ailing in earnest at midnight
and at daylight had dropped down to 10
degrees below zero, holding steadily at
this point until night, when another
drop began, which reached 20 below at
0 o'clock, with every indication of a
further fall of 8 or 10 degrees.
The cold wave, which covers a wide
area, is accompanied by a heavy, damp
northwest wind. Light snow is re
ported at fome points, but the only de
lay to traffic has been occasioned by
inability to keep up steam. It is ex
tremely cold all over Minnesota and
the Dakotas, the register of the mer
cury running from 10 to 33 degress be'
Snow In Montana.
Reports from Montana say that there
is from 9 to 3 feet of snow on the
ground there, and that if the cold wave
extends over many days the cattle on
the ranges will die of thirst because ol
the ice, or of starvation because of in
ability to reach the grass.

A CHECK ON CANADA.
Her Railroad Discrimination Measures
Call for Retaliation So at Least Thinks
Washington, Dec 26. The president
has called upon the executive depart
ments for all information in their
possession relative to freights
coming into the United States
over the Canadian Pacific rail
road. The unjust discrimination
against United States railroads made
by law or rather by its construction in
favor of the Canadian Pacific railroad
by means of consular seal system hai
long been a source of complaint.
Under it freights are shipped
from Canada to interior ports in
the United States. The United States'
consul certifies that the manifest
is correct, that he has sealed and closed
the car, and that certification carries
the freight through without inspection
at the border, thus saving from one to
two days' delay and the cost of re
handling. When the law was passed
the traffic was small.
It is contended at the treasury de
partment that the privileges were orig
inally confined to the products of Can
ada, and United States consuls should
give personal attention to inspecting
the shipments. Gradually the business
has grown, and the law has been per
verted, till now more goods having their
origin in China and Japan are shipped
than products of Canada. Enjoy
ing this superiority, the Canadian
Pacific has caused to be put into the
Canadian tariff a discriminating duty
of 10 per cent on all coffee and tea im
ported into Canada from the United
States. From all countries except the
United States coffee and tea can come
into Canada free. The effect of this
has been to divert this traffic from
It is pointed out that as the traffic
has become so great that it is impossi
ble for United States consuls to per
sonally perform the duties required
of . them, a due regard for the
revenue would warrant the suspen
sion of the section until such time
as congress makes provision for its
perfect enforcement. Should this be
done it would in the opinion of treas
ury department officials put a stop to
discrimination against American rail
roads and be a retaliatory measure
agai nst Canada for her unfriendliness.
FIRES AT MILWAUKEE.
Two Occur About the Same Time and Are
Believed to Be Incendiary.
Milwaukee, Dec 26. Two fires
which broke out within an hour of each
other Sunday afternoon tend to con
firm the suspicion that has existed in
connection with the several fires in
this city, dating back to the big fire,
that an incendiary, if not an organ
ized band of firebugs, ia at work in this
At 3:43 o'clock Sunday afternoon an
alarm was sent in for a fire at the
old Cream City flour mill at the south
west corner of East Water and Chi
cago streets, and called oat by a sec
ond alarm all the fire depart
ment from the business district of
the city. The engines were at work at
the fire when an alarm was sent in at
4:31 o'clock for a fire in the factory of
the Gem and Knitting and Hammock
company, Nos. 184 to 188 Hanover
street, followed a - few minutes
later by a second alarm. In conse
quence of the delay of the firemen
in reaching the second fire the factory
was soon in flames from front to rear
on the four floors. By extraordinary
work and a hard fight lasting over two
hours the firemen succeeded in confin
ing the flames to the knitting factory,
which is a total loss.
Meanwhile the flour mill was burn
ing fiercely. Althongh it was confined
to the old mill it was several hours be
fore the fire was entirely un
der control. The aggregate loss
through both fires is $120.
000. The Knitting company's loss
is $80,000, and their insurance
$60,000. The loss on the building,
owned by Capt. Pabst, is J20.000, fully
covered by insurance. On the flour
mill and machinery, both owne'd by
Matthew Keenan, the loss is about
920,000 with no insurance.

Washington, Dec 2d. The national

tbe corn sent from the northwestern
states upwards of $100,000 was sent di-

credited to the New York chamber of
