A Regular Blizzard Rages in New York City. High Tides Along the New England and Jersey bhores. Much Damage Done by Wind a; 1 at Wayes. A Big Ice Gotge Breaks at Cin cinnati—Snowstorms in Michigan. By the Associated Press. Highland Light, Muss., Jan. 6. —The gale that developed here yesterday in creased to the worst northeast storm thus far this season.. During the night the sea thundered againet the cliffs the entire length of the coast. Two barks and the schooner Alma Cummings were driven southeast seaward. The steamer Chatham which passed out for Balti more at noon is laboring heavily. One steamer, one square-rigged vessel and five schooners are storm-bound near Provincetown. There is no sign of a change in the weather. The train due from Boston at 1 p. m. trad not arrived at 9 o'clock, the tracks being badly filled with snow. Blackstonb, Macs., Jan. 6.—Eighteen inches of snow fell on the level in the towns of North Bridge, Bridge, Milvill* and Blackßtone, being the heaviest fjlall since the blizzard of 1888. Railway travel on the Consolidated and New England railway is delayed. Fab-Rockway, L. L, Jan. 6.— The high tides which accompanied the storm dur ing the past 36 hours almost over whelmed Hog island. Frank's pavilion and Gipson's bathing house were washed out to sea. Caffrey's pavilion and other buildings were damaged. It is feared if the storm continues other buildings on the bench will be washed away. Nkw York, Jan. 6.—Not since the terrible snowstorm of five years ago has New York experienced anything so nearly like a blizzard as that which has been blowing here cince last night. Traffic on Broadway is aimost suspended, while on some of the less promi nent streets the blockade is com plete. The snow drifts are from four to five feet deep. Snow fell fitfully all aft ernoon with gusts of wind. Early in the evening it began to fall fast nnd furious. Driven by the gale, it soon became as fine as powder, increasing in violence, and continued throughout the night, with the reeultß given above. Signal Service Officer Dunn says the snow storm netted New York 11 inches on the level. Off the level there are varying numbers of feet and it is mostly off the level. Some surface lines kept Know plows running throughout the night and were thus able to run out four horse cars to accommodate part of their regular early travel, but not the overflow. An army of men were at work today making the streets passable, and the snow is rapidly forming into well regulated lumps along the curbing preparatory to being carted away. There was but little disturbance in the sched ules of the railroads. Tonight the weather is clear and cold with little wind blowing. The storm and wind did much damage in and around Jamaica bay. Several yachts were torn from their anchorage and blown heavily on the meadows where a number of them were complete ly wrecked. Loko Branch, N. J., Jan. 6.—A fierce anow and windstorm along the Jersey coast has wrought terrible damage to property. A heavy sea is running. The Shrewsbury hotel at Seabright is being undermined; the street being washed away by the raging sea, has caused the stoppage of (rains to High lands. The bulkhead and bluff at that place are also going to pieces here. The famous iron pier is a total wreck. The entire bluff on Chelsea avenue is gone. The bulkheads on other portions of the bluff are greatly damaged. AN ICE GORGE BREAKS. Much Damage Done to Coal Fleets In Cincinnati. Cincinnati, Jan. 6.—This morning an ice gorge in the Ohio river broke, with nobody knows precisely what loss to boats and coal fleets. Heavy ice had been floating and forming in the river for the past two or three days. An ice gorge this morning formed between the Louisville and Nashville bridge and the Cincinnati Southern railway bridge, cov ering a distance of two miles. Floating ice came down and joined the gorge. Below the rivei was clear. In the im mense frozen raft were locked all the coal fleets, nine packets and several tow boats. The harbor boats Comet, Benwood and Alice Carr tried all day to break the gorge but without result. At 4:30 o'clock the immense body of ice began to move in a solid mass. The packets and towboats, to all appearances, escaped with little or no injury. On the other hand every coal fleet suffered. The principal destruction follows: Pitts burg Coal company, four barges and two flats valued at $10,000; Collier, Budd & Co., four barges and several floats, value $10,000. At Ludlow, Ky., Mr. Back lost 16 barges, valued at $40,000. Seven miles further down the river two barges and three floats were taken away, value $10, --000. Other inevitable incidental losses are estimated at $30,000, making the total $100,000. But the danger is not over, and the situation is still threaten ing. At 9 o'clock tonight the gorge stopped at North Bend, 13 miles below. Another gorge at the same time formed just above Lawrenceburg, Ind., 23 miles down the river. Between the two gorges the water is clear, and here are locked coal boats and barges, snch as have not gone down. It seems scarcely possible °aviDg any property in the prison of ice. The river above is open, but is floating heavy ice. If another gorge forms here tonight greater damage will be done. A Snow Blockade in Michigan. Detroit, Mich., Jan. U.— Dispatches from the eastern coait of Lake Michi gan indicate that one of the heaviest ■now storms for years has been raging since early yesterday. The storm is general throughout the state, bat most severe in the vicinity mentioned. Snow has delayed railroad traffic generally, and the country highways are also badly blockaded. The steamer Lata, which left St. Joseph Wednesday night for Milwaukee, reached Grand Haven this morning in a badly battered condi tion. The steamer Wisconsin, from Milwaukee, which was also overdue, ar rived in Grand Haven today after a stormy trip. A FLURRY IN FORK. Product! Keach the Highest Price* Known In Years. Chicago, Jan. 6. — Pork Bold on 'change today at the highest price known in years—-$lB per barrel. For a time it looked as if the quotations would jump to $20. Heavy transactions and I?reat excitement marked the trading. John Cudahy and Austin Wright, aided and abetted by Norman B. Ream, are popularly believed to be the master spirits in the deal. The manipulators of the market are said on all sides to have cleared enormous profits, by some estimated in the millions. Manipu lating aside, the mainspring under the market is the shortage of hogs. Prices at the yards showed the greatest jump, 20 to 26 higher, and there is free talk of S9 hogs if the supply does not improve. The market closed within a shade of the highest prices of the day. PORTFOLIO FOR FOOTE. CALIFORNIA TO BE BEPRBBBXTED IN THE CABINET. W. TV. Foot* Bald to Be Booked for Post master-General— Senator Stewart Said ta Hare Secured the Place for Him. San Fkancisco, Jan. 6.—A Washing ton special says: The Pacific slope is to have a representative in the cabinet, and W. W. Foots of California is to be the man. This is a positive statement, by a man who proteoses to know what he is talking about. The portfolio he will be offered, if he has not already been offered it, is that of postmaster gCneral. To Senator Stewart is given the credit of having secured the appoint ment, he being interested in Foote be cause he is his brother-in-law. The senator is also eaid to be desirous of seeing Stephen M. White in the senate, and as Foote and White were the chief Democratic rivals for the senatorship, he thought it a good plan to kill two birds with one stone. Being on friendly terms with Cleveland he visited him in New York, and there secured the promise of this goodly slice. Thereupon, it is said, lie telegraphed Foote to withdraw from the senatorial race at once and prepare to accept a place in the cabinet. Foote promptly withdrew. »OOTE IGNORANT OP THIS MATTKR. Sacramento, Jan. 6. — When ques tioned regarding the report that he wonld be appointed postmaster general under Cleveland, W. W. Foote replied: 'Tf there is Buch a disposition on the part of the president-elect I have not heard of it, and could scarcely say whether or not I could accept such an appointment. I have an ambition for only one position, that of United Stateß senator, which I regard as the highest office in the gift of the people." STEWART IS SLY—DEVILISH SLY. Washington, Jan. 6.—Senator Stewart cannot be interviewed satisfactorily on the appointment of W.W. Foote as post master general. He assumed an air of profound ignorance in reference to it, and denied point blank some of the statements made as to his connection with the matter. The selection of Foote, however, is accepted as a fact in certain quarters in Washington. THE BAKEKSVILLK FAKE. Disgusted Reporter* Return from tbe Scene of the Alleged Fight. AsusviLi.il, N. C, Jan. 6.—Corres pondents sent by tbe Citizen to Bakers ville, N, 0., Wednesday returned here tonight worn out and disgusted, having traveled nearly a hundred miles with horses and in a continuous snow storm.

How Delahaye Fulfilled His Commission. Much More Corruption Remains to Be Revealed. Charles De T.ess«i>s to Make a Confession That Will Startle America as Well as France—Anarchist Activity in Paris. By the Associated Press. Paris, Jan. 6.—M.Delahaye publishes this morning an important letter, nar rating how he fulfilled his commission to expose the Panama canal scandal. A certain person came to him, be says, with a fac simile of the original list ol 172 senators and deputies who accepted Panama funds. The list was shown him, however, upon the condition that he should not reveal the names, but merely take steps to compel the chamber of deputies itself to undertake the expos ure. M. Delahaye says subsequent events amply confirmed all the state ments of his informant. He adds that much more remains to be revealed. The police are busy destroying incen diary placards posted by anarchists. The placards call upon the people to rise at once, seize arms, destroy corrupt oppressors and seize the reins of gov ernment. A feeling of alarm was ap parent throughout tha city last evening and is likely to increase today in consequence of the prophesies of the press that the worst of the devel opments are to come. General Saua sier, military governor of the cify, has taken every possible precaution. The city would be safe were it not for the general conviction that the government is playing fast and loose in the Panama matter. The laxity of the government's conduct of the prosecution is the sub ject of universal comment. The chargeß against Baihut, minister of public workß in the De Freycinet cabinet, have aroused great interest. As minister uf public works he had au important influence on the course of the government in regard to the Panama Canal company, and the charge is sub stantially that he sold his influence. Figaro says the judge has decided that the evidence against him warrants put ting him on trial. It is reported that the proof against Baihut and other important people whom the government is prosecuting is due to an understanding between the government, and Charles de Lesseps, under which the latter, by giving all the information in his power in relation to the beneficiaries of the Panama canal corrnpiion, will be treated with great leniency or entire immunity. It is re ported that De Lessepß has made au un reserved statement of all the facts with in his knowledge, and will repeat it when the cases come to trial. His object is said to be not only immunity but also to convince the public that the Panama company was forced by irresist ible pressure from officials and news papers to choose between wholesale cor ruption and the threatened ruin of the enterprise. It is said De Lesseps' rev elations are of the most Btartling char acter, and will create a sensation in America as well as in France. London, Jan. 6. —The Paris corre spondent of the Daily News says: The Royalists are despairing of the Comte de Paris on account of his apathy in plotting in a hotel in Madrid, instead of boldly entering France as emperor. The advanced members of the party talk of asking him to abdicate in favor of the duke of Orleans. ANTI-SEMITIC RANT. Marquis de More*' Remarks Create a Blot. Paris, Jan. 6. —A great anti-semitic meeting was held at Tivoli Voux ball this evening, nnder the supervision of the Libre Parole groupe. The principal speaker of the evening was the Marquis de Mores. He began his address with a general onslaught on the Jews as corrupters and haters of French honor. A tremendous uproar greeted his assertions, and about 60 men started forward to the platform. At the steps some 30 of De Mores' partisans thowed fight. The police an nounced that unless the dieorder ceased the meeting would be dissolved, and a short lull followed. Later the marquis returned to the subject of the Jews, and about 300 per sons rose, groaning and hissing. The rest of the audience cheered or shouted for order. Eventually the Libre parole crowd made a rush for the principal disturbers, upsetting and smashing seats and trampling down the antagonists in the way. Two bodies oi policemen were called in, each 100 strong, and cleared the hall. , London, Jan. 6. —The Paris corres pondent of the Standard says a cartridge five inches long and two inches in di ameter, with a lighted fuse attached to it, was thrown into the audience at the anti-semitic meeting last night. The cartridge was carried out by policemen, and the police are now trying to give the impression that the cartridge was only a cigar. STRIKING SAAR MINERS. Much Suffering Prevailing and Violence Resorted to. Berlin, Jan. 6. —A miner who tried to return to work yesterday afternoon was co maltreated that he died two hours later. Hundreds of miners are anxiouß to resume work, bat fear to do bo, as they are threatened with death by the leaders of the strikers. Boxes ot powder and petroleum with lighted fuses attached have been found in tbe houses of several blacklegs. Many powder or dyna mite bombs were exploded today in tbe halls or under the steps of houses where blacklegs lodged. Nobody was killed, hot a considerable amount of PRICE FIVE CENTS. damage was' done, and the gravest ap prehensions have been excited in the Saar district and in this city. There is much Buffering among the strikers in the Saar district, who are ill prepared to measure strength with the employers. In many cases the miners and their families are famishing, and it is thought hunger will soon drive them back to work. McBRIDE'S BPFCULATION. For a Few Thousand Dollars lie Got Property Worth 95,000,000. Tacoma, Wash., Jan. 6.—By a decis ion of the general land office John G. Mcßride gets posseesion of and title to 120 acres of land in this city, which he claim!) is worth $5,000,000. In Septem ber, 1889, 20 citizens of Tacoma filed on the laud in mineral claims of 20 acres each. Mcßride bought, these claims at from $100 to $300, and then applied for a patent. This was refused, and after 20 days'legal fight in the local land office the case was decided against him. He appealed to the general land office and the decision in his favor was made public today. Ireland's Vl»tvs Taking. Baltimore, Jan. 6.—The priests and laymen of the Catholic church in the archdiocese of Baltimore ero so im pressed by the views of Archbishop Ire land on the school question that some of them are considering the advisability of submitting a proposition to the city au thorities, providing that the cardinal agrees to the plans. CLIPPER COMPETITION. A FURTHER CUT IN TRANSCONTI NENTAL RATES. The Southern Pacliio Extends the List »f Favored Commodities—Rates on Wine, Hides, Pelts, Etc., Reduced. Chicago, Jan. 6.—The Southern Pa cific not content with the reductions heretofore put into effect on vnrioua commodities from San Francisco to New York and intermediate points, has asked its connections to join it in re ducing the rate on dry hides, bair, seal skins, sheep pelts and goat pelts; in car load shipments, to $1 per 100 pounds from California to New York. It also desires to make a rate of 50 cents per 100 pounds ou wine in carload lots from the Pacific to the Atlantic coast, Replying the same rate to Chicago. The old story of clipper ship competition is re hearsed in giving the reason for these proposed reductions. The Southern Pacific may put the rates into effect by way of New Orleans, but whether it will be allowed to go by way of Chicago is not definitely settled. DARING KAIL THIK~V£S.
