Telephone and electric light wires
?tuffered during the r'ght and today..
Citizens, and especially children, are
warned not to take hold of any wires
found dangling, for It might prove to
oe a live wire.
Water p'pes were hard hit during
the night and many a man went trud
ging through the storm this morning
to a neighbor? after water to boll cof
fee. Plumbers were hardly able to be
had today for love or money and the
man of the house generally had to
turn to and thaw out his own pipes.
Coal men and transfer companies
were kept on the move for It was sur
prising the number of coal bins that
j suddenly were found to be empty.
Horses plodded about the streets
hauling their loads and the Icicles for

One of the large show windows of
Goldstein's Emporium was blown out

window In the Raymond store blew

transoms of the Alaskan parted with
the sa h early 'n the evening.
During the afternoon, Goldstein's
Empor um lost another plate g1a~s
window from the storm's work. This
loss is estimated at $175.
Coldest Since 1905.
On a day like this the old timers
get busy and begin remembering pa t
cold records. The coldest weather over
experienced in Juneau wa3 in 1SS5
when the thcrmomenter dropped to
25 below xero. and a thick ice form.nl j
all along the channel. This is verified
by A. Sokoloff. The next record for
a cold wave is bel'eved to have been
In 1905. the night of the Louvre fire,
when the temperature was eighteen
degrees below and a high wind was
blowing.
Juneau people, however, are plways
prepared. From midnight to early this i
morning, between gusts of blowing
snow, one could look in all directions
and twinkl'ng lights were seen. Men
were sitting up nursing the fire or
attending to water pipes and prepar
ing for the unexepected.
The coldest corner Is around Front
and Franklin, opposite the Gastineau
hotel. Here the wind gets a power
*ui sweep down Franklin avenue and
reinfcrced by a counter wind along
Front makes navigation someth'ng
fierce. A wide detour of possibly fif
ty feet is taken by pedestrians in get
ting around the locality.
On the heights around the city the
wind's velocity is severe. The wind
has packed the snow to such an ex
tent on Chicken ridge that one can
walk upon 'ts surface. Through the
c .metery, drifts are over one's knees.
Thl3 noon many a man telephoned
his wife not to prepare any luncheon
as he would either remain in his place
of business or would go out to the
restaurants. At the court house the
various minor officials tried to be real
nice to the cook 1n hopes that she
wculd give them a han-'-nitt but
were gratified and husti'ng on their
caps they merged themselves with
the elements and filed themselves to
places where eats were served, for
cash.
An empty ccal scuttle from the hill
-omcwhere. came down Main street
this afternoon, struck the ground at
the corner of Front and hoisted by
the gale landed again in front of
Young's. Some force behind that
scuttle.
In many establishments the em
ployees took different shifts off and
oerched themselves on the radiators
and let the heat ooze through their
syst'ms .
The large awning of the Juneau
Clcthing Company was cut into rib
bons and this morning all that re
mained was the iron pipe frame.
Several windows in the Caro build
ing were smashed.
Chimneys blcwirg down was an all
n'ght occurrence.
Several windows in the Scott build
ing were missing this morning.
Signs of va-ious kinds Jarred thorn
selves loose during the storm and
scattered to the corners of the four
winds.
Night watchmen were emplovcd In

...
Fire, caused by an unprotected heat
pipe runn ng frcm the boiler of the
plant In the baaeraent of the Malon
ey block, which ignited the wood work
immediately above it, caused a gen
eral alarm shortly before two o'clock
this afternoon. The truck with Driv
er Sargent and Officer Wheeler, was
on the scene two minutes after the
telephone alarm had been sent in and
a dozen flrcraen had arrived at the
scene in even shorter time and had
run a serv'ce line of hose to the seat
of the fire from Goldstein's store.
With this stream and a line from the
chemical tho fire was supposedly
brought under quick control, until J
flames suddenly burst through the j,
floor into tho rear of R. 1'. Nelson's j1
bock store. In the meantime a line'
of hose had been laid from tho hy-1
drant at the Owl drug store corner '
and water was quickly shot through .
t into the store blaze and the flames
were quickly extingu'siicd. No one j
was in the storo at the time, and the
firemen were forced to break through
a rear dcor also forced the front door.
A second line of hose had by this time :
been stretched frcm the corner of
Front and Main street but fortunate
ly this was not required to be put in 1
use. Extinguishing tho fire in the ;
Nelson store the firemen gave clqse i
attention _ to the basement. L'ttle
bames could be seen worlkng along j
tho beams, and as there is no base
ment under the building except where
the heating plant i3 located, the fire
boys were required to squirm along
underneath the studding. They ac
complished their purpose and tho lit
tle insipid blazes were extinguished.
Tho fire was first discovered bv em
ployees of the Frye-Bruhn Company
! who quickly phoned to City Clerk Pet
fit who at that time was at his desk.
Mr. Pettlt quickly scunded the alarm
and it seems that within the space
of three minutes the entire depart
ment was at the scene of tho fire.
rh'ef Freiman reached the scene at:
'ho same time as the truck and took
direct charge of the work. A high
wind was blowing down Seward
treet and around the corner at the
'Ime and only the prrmpt work of the"
lepartment prevented a more serious
blaze. The damage to the building is
-mall and the damage to the stock is
mostly that caused by water.
The Second Fire.
A Are broke out in a flue at Stock
er*8 bi'liard hall. Front rtreet, at
2:?5 this a'ternoon, but the flames
were extinguished in short order with
?he chemi'-ai from the fire automobile,
"hlef Frolman and his men went
-bout their bus'ness methodically, ?s
'abltshing fro linns in both instances.
Third Fire Small.
Shortly before 3 o'clock a third
a'arm was sounded. This Are was in
the rear of the two story building at
321 Fa-t Second, the first building up
I the hill beyond the customs house.
BRITAIN
CALLED TO
ACCOUNT
WASHINGTON. Jan. 20. ? Great
Britain's Interference with neutral
trade wa3 tho subject of a vigorous
and exhaustive speech in the Senate
today by Speaker Hoke Smith, who
pleaded for action to prevent England
from advancing her own trade at tho
expense of the United States while
attempting to destroy Germany com
mercially.
Senator Smith declared the rights
of citizens of the United States and
other neutral nations were be'ng
"recklessly disregarded"' and empha
sized particularly what he denounced
as "Great Britain's lawless treatment
of America's cotton trade." He as
serted that cotton had not been used,
or needed by Germany or her rallies,
In the manufacture of war munitions
for more than eight months, and de
clared that the action of England In !
making cotton contraband was rovo
lut'onary.
Senator Smith continued: "Para
phrasing the language of Mr. Jeff
erson, England may feel a desire for |
absorbing the commerce of Germany
and starving her people, but sho can
have no right In doing It at our los3, j
or making the United States the in
strument of It. Great Britain can
not cont nue the war without muni
tions from the United States. Great
Britain cannot feed her population
without foodstuffs from tho United
States and otiker netltrals. Great Brit
ain cannot keep her people engaged
In the Lancashire mills at work with
out cotton from the United States
and Great Britain cannot accompl'sh
her scheme for worldwide domination
of crmmercc In her vast products of
aotton manufactured products without
calling upon tho United States."

SEPARATE,
PEACE IS
CANCELLED
ROME, Jan. 20.?Fighting between
Austria and Montenegro will soon be
resumed, peace negotiations having
been cancelled.
Notification that there would bo no
separate peace between King Nicho
las' country and Austria-Hungary was
made to the Italian war office today.

patches from Paris which said that
King Nicholas had sailed for Italy, a
fugitive from the invaders, accom
panied by the Queen, and the mem
bers of the royal suite.
Failure to seal the peace pact wa3
due to Montenegro's refusal to allow
Austria to maintain a naval base on
i he Montenegrin coast, according to
a variety of reports received from
die Balkans. As Austria now occu
p'es nearly four-fifths of Montenegro,
that country's status is practically
the same as Serbia, overrun by the
Austrians, Bulgarians and Germans. !
