Wheeling la In the throes of the coldest
cold wave that has struck the old
town thla season, and the end la not
yet. At 3 o'clock thla morning: the
Schnepf thermometer allows '3 degrees
below zero, and still falling.
The zero mark was reached at mid- '
night, and at that hour the temperature
aB shown by two reliable thermometers
at the suspension bridge toll house was
6 degrees below zero. ,
The midnight temperature at Elm
Grove was 7 degrees, and S degrees was
reported from "West Uridgeport, across
the river.
No doubt the Schnepf thermometer 1
will register a lower temperature than
8 below later this morning, and at the
bridge the temperature will be about 5
degrees lower.
The day opened with 11 above registered
at 7 a. in., which had risen to I
17 at 3 p. m. Then the mercury began
its grand tumbling act, with 1 degrees i
above at 7 p. m.? after which it was depressed,
at the rate of a degree per hour .
to midnight.
Last night there-was little or no wind
stirring, and the extreme cold weather ,
was not felt so severely as it would with
a gale blowing. However, the temper- ,
ature was too low for out-of-door enjoyment.
and there V.-as little or no
sleighing and very few people were on I
the streets. The audiences at the theatres
and other places of amusement ,
wer cut away down by the weather
The supply of natural gas for domes- I
tic consumption was maintained very
well by the Natural Gas Company of .
West Virginia, and there had been, no
complaints from consumers in Wheeling
up to a late hour last night. In
Bellaire there was a shortage during i
the day. Some of the manufacturing
establishments had to contend with a
gas shortage, though, and there will .
likely be little or no improvement with ]
them until the cold snap abates. ,
The river people are having a distressing
experience. Two of the local
packets came out yesterday, and their
experience with the Ice was so discouraging
that they went to the banlc last
night. The Queen City is due for Cincinnati
this morning, and the Virginia

morning. All the other boats have suspended
Ice was making in the river very fast
last night, and the stream was boeom- i

Consumers of wool feci somewhat enjuraged

in any increase in business. The

Several Wheeling: people who have a
irge block of leases In the Colerain
eld at Pleasant Grove, two miles from
olerain, are feeling quite cheerful over
tie south-eastern extension of the Sclo
eld. This may bring the pay streak
own to the Colerain field.
The latter field, through mismanagelerit,
did not receive the attention that
:s merits entitled. Test wells on three
Ides seemed to conflne the southern
ounds of the pay sand, but tho north estern
extension was not tested by the
rill. The last well in this direction, af?r
touching the sand, produced oil in
aying quantities, but, owing to lawLilts
which are now before the Ohio sureme
court, the title to the well was
antested and the hole was abandoned,
'wo tanks of oil were filled and the
ell, after lying without any attention
3r the past two or three years, is still
xuding the oily liuid.
People familiar with Berea grit who
ave examined this well, say that a

The W. & Ii. K. Sale.
Of the sale of the Wheeling & Lake
Erie to the reorganization committed,
the Toledo.Blade says:
The most important feature of the sale
was nil apparently-unimportant remark
oC Mr. Amon Goodwin, the attorney for
the reorganization committee. From the
gentleman's remarks in the presence of
a group of newspaper men. Myron T.
Herrlck will be president of the new
company, and Robert Blickensdcrfer
will be general manager. Mr. Goodwin
"1 do not anticipate that there will be
any changes in the management of the
road under the reorganization. The
present management lias made a most
excellent showing, and, Q9 I understand
it, 110 changes are contemplated."
This is a virtual admission tfiat the
present receivers will be retained, and,
in that event. Mr. Ilerrick will have
charge of the finances of the property,
and-Mr. BUckensderfer will be In active
charge of the operations of the road.
This is the first intimation that has
come from an authoritative source. The
reorganization committee selects the
board of directors, and the latter will
name tlie ofiicers.
Tl. F. Carleton, who was appointed by
Tfi ft an cnoMol n.outm- Uncrn?
I read the notice of sale promptly at 12
o'clock to a small party of SDectators
and the representatives of the reorganization
committee, which had assembled
in the Wheeling depot. Judge
Doyle said informally: '7-et her go,"
and the special master began to read.
The notice of the sale was a long one
and contained enough "saids," "iforesaids"
and "whereases" to make the ordinary
man dizzy in trying to follow
the sense of the document. Boiled down
tin; property was sold to the highest
bidder, subject to SG,000,000 divisional
mortgages and interest on the same,
amounting to about $500,000 more, and
the current liabilities. This would run
the securities up to over seven millions.
At the conclusion of his reading,
Spccial Master Carleton asked if there
were any objections of notice to be served
before the sale proceeded. City Attorney
13. 13. Wood, of Xorwalk, was
present, and proceeded to present his
city's claims for the maintenance of the
company's shops at that place. The
young man had his piece well committed.
and proceeded to give the special
master a history of the city's contract
with the Wheeling, and of the proceedings
which Norwalk had brought in
court against the road.
After reading another small notice,
Special Master Carleton assumed the
role of nn auctioneer.
"How much am I offered for the
The only bidder was A. W. Krech,
who arose and quietly said:
"l am authorized to bid one million
dollars for E. 11. Adee and myself."
"One million dollars I am bid." cried
the special master. "One million dollars.
once?one million?twice?'"
Here he pased, looked up the stair- 1
way, as if expecting to see some one
burst through the door and cry "Two '
"One million?-three limes?and sold to ;
E. R. Adee and A. W. Krech."
Without further formality, the party
walked out of the depot and took the 1
car for down town. I
