Wabihncjton. Feb. 10. "All quiet" was the
reassuring information added by Admiral
Dewoy to a cablo mossago reoetvod 'at tho
Navy Department to-day. Tho message It
solf said that the cruiser Baltimore had besn
rotubed and repaired nt tho Cavlto nrsonnl and
was In excellent condition. No advices as to
the situation came from Major-Gen. Otis, and
this absenoe ot news from him. taken rn con
nection with Admiral Dewey's message. Is ac
coptod as proof that no new and exciting events
havo ooourrcd in tho neighborhood ot Manila.
Six weeks ago. when Gen. Otlt notified the
War Dopattmont ot his Intention to occupy
Hollo, ho sent word also that when tha occu
pation was completed ho would send, a garri
son to Cobu, the capital and principal port ot
tho island ot that name In tho complica
tions that prevented Gen. Miller from landing
n force at llollo, the military authorities here
forgot nil about Cobu, but, with llollo taken,
they expect that tho noxt nows of importance
will bo the occupation of tho former place by
somo ot tho troops ot Gen. Millar's command,
now eonftstlng ot tho Eighteenth Regular In
fantry. Battery G of the Hlxth Artillery, and
the First Tennosseo Volunteers.' The fact that
the Panny insurgents nro-d!posed to mako it
troublesomo for the United Btntos troops In
llollo and.lts neighborhood may.orovent tho
occupation of Cobu for somo, time.
The war Department has selected for the
next expedition to tho Philippines the Rlxth.
Ninth, nnd Twontr-fourth regiments ot united
States Infantry. Tho ninth was ordered yes
terday to proceed from Madison Barraoks, N.

Douglas. Utah, and Fort D. A. Russell,. Wyo
were selected somo time age for "a pro
tracted term ot servico in a tropical climate,
end have been ready to move nt short notice.
Just how soon these regiments will bo sent
will depend' on circumstances. Should the
army of Agulnnldo receive hoavy reinforce'
monts they would probably be sent ns soon as
trnnoports could be secured. It tho Army
Reorganization bill becomes a law the. three
regiments will be sent to tho Philippines
without delay to relievo some of the volunteer

000 rounds moro went to Manila. To supple
ment this thn transport Grant is conveying
2.000.000 more rounds. Tho important part
the batteries have played In the conflict with
tho robols has so Impressed tho Bureau of
Ordnanco that It has boon docldod to send

Washinoton. Fob. 10. Washington is now
threatened wltl&a flood, and tho conditions in
dicate that it will bo greater than any before
experienced by tho city. It has been raining
all day, and there Is every prospect of a sudden
thaw and melting of the snow before the river
can bo well opened. Many suggestions havo
beon mado to the local authorities with a view
of warding off part of tho blow, and tho busi
ness men havo petitioned tho District Com
missioners to appeal to tho War Department
to blow up with dynnmlte tho long bridge, a
structure across the Potomac about ono mile
long. It is above this bridge that much of the
ico is gorged and a dam Is formed over which
the water flows upon tho city. A eoni
mittco of business mon. altar making
this suggestion to thr District Commissioners,
also called at the War Department to consult
with the Boerotary of Wnr about' tho blowing
up ot the bridge should it become necessary
to do so to savo proporty and llfo. Tho people
of Washington believe that a flood Is Inevitable,
and point back to tho dnngorous floods of 1881
and 1880, when tho lower part of tho city was
undor water and thousands ot dollars' worth ot
pioporty wns destroyed.

for moro tlmo than It wan In running order.
For a quarto r of an hour nt a tlmo oars full of

bang tho motorman's boll, tho motorman would
turn on tho powor nnd tho oar would bo In
darkness again. Attor threo or four falso
starts, tho power would "stay put "for n few
minutes and the cars would all movo nhoad a

Tho trolley wires in Brooklyn woro coatod

nnd procoodod, for tho admiration of tho pub

of tho trolley rod encountered a strotch of Ice
tho current was Interrupted and a quantity of
boautirul palo green electricity broke loose
Tho effect of tho performance was further
heightened by a constant crackling.
Aftor darknoss fell thoolfoct to ono looking
up a street on which there was a procession of
trolley ears wns weird. At n distance tho cars
themsolvos were not visible but tho sparks
wore, nnd tholr steady progression In ncourate

of manifestations lined up In Indian fllo nt a

Iowor was wasted that tho cars moved with
dismal nnd jerky slownoss, nnd tho dinnor
bound homegoer found a free llrowork show a
poor exchange for a warm meal.
Thoro were beautiful displays on the bridge.
Both the trolley wires and the third rail woro
coated with ico. and. as a result, there were
intermittent breaks in the current. All tho
trolloy cars going over tho bridge In thn oven
Ing woro bathed in tho light produced, which
soomod to play all ovor them. Where tho trol
ley ran along thn wire there was a succession of
flashes, and moro came from under the wheels.
On the brldgo railroad tho display was even
moro extensive, and was sufficient to llluml
nate thn towers as tho cars passod ututer
them. Tho flashes from trolley and brldgo
cars lit up oven thn bigcables. The lights m
thn cars had a way ot going entirely out and
flaring up intermittently. No ono was able to
read on tbo cars, and they were at times In to

LOUISIANA ORANGES NO MORE,
The Groves Are Frozen to Death Sugar
cane "Crop Half Destroyed.
New Orlkanb, La., Fob. 10. It is now pos
sible to form some estlmato ot tho amount of
damage dono by tho lato cold wave, and It
proves to be far greator than was at first imag
ined. Tho investigation conducted has shown
that tho orange Industry ot Louisiana Is com
pletely annihilated. Both old trees and young
have boon absolutely killed by tho freeze nnd
will never bear again. Tho orange groves of
Plaquemlno parish, which produced about
$750,000 worth of oranges n yenr ago. repre
sent un Investment of J4.000.000 to $5,000,000.
A very large number of young trees had been
planted this year. Whether tho planters will
plant again Is doubtful. Tho crop, whloh was
cultivated without loss for a hundred years,
has met with two heavy blows in tho past nine
years, nnd Is to-dny totally annihilated.
Tho report as to sugarcano is bad. but not
quitons serious. Investigations conducted by
Prof. Stubbs at the United States Sugar Ex
periment Farm at Audubon Park, a specially
woll protected locality, where the cane Is safer
than nt almost any other placo In Louisiana,
showed that the ground was eomplotoly frozen
to a depth of eight inches. The stubble cane,
that which was cut down and which sends out
a second, third and oven fourth yenr's growth,
was destroyed. Tho plant carlo hold over for
planting, which was to havo begun this month,
is frozen, and nt least half the eyes, or sprouts,
have been killed by the cold. The very best
that can bo hoped for Is n half crop, and that
only with n favornblo growing season. This
means a loss of 150,000 tons of sugar, as com
pared with an averago year. Tho actual loss
from this sourco will not be less than
r 1)00 tHX)

tables in practically tho wholn of the

orango belt, which escaped tho disastrous
freezoof four years ago. has nlsoescapod this
time. Tho llneof tho killing freozo this yonr Is
nt least fifty mllos further north than the lino
of the freeze of 1805. Tho fruit crops will
quickly recover from nil damagp done. For
fifty miles south ot Jacksonville the damage
has been great to both fruit nnd vegetables,
but below that tho outlook Is encouraging.
Tho Baltimore and Ohio Recovering from

Ohio Railroad has practically resumed Its regu

Tho snow has been removed from tho
tracks and there is no reason to fear
a biockndo at any point. Unless unex

the noxt twenty-four hours the entire freight
servico of the road will bo resumed. At pros
ent perlshnblo freight nnd livestock only Is
