BLIZZARD IN DAKOTA OVER WEATHER COLD AND CLEAR AF TER STORM, NEW SETTLERS SUFFERED Railroads Busy Clearing Tracks of Immense Drifts and Opening Up Traffic. St. Paul, March 17.-The great bliz zard which has raged over the Da kotas and Manitoba since last Friday subsided today and the weather is generally fair but intensely cold, the thermometer ranging from 10 to 20 below zero. With the subsidence of the storm the railroads are beginning with en ergy to get main lines open for traf fic and immense rotary snow plows and gangs of men with picks and shovels are attacking the mountains of snow that block the tracks. The Great Northern has succeeded in opening its line as far west as Churches Ferry and the road is ex pected to be clear as far as Minot by morning. This will open an avenue of escape for the trans-continental trains on that road which have been snowed in at Minot since Friday night. If all goes well the coast trains that should have arrived in St. Paul last Saturday morning will gets here sometime on Wednesday. The Northern Pacific expect to have its road open again by tomorrow, and the through trains that have been snowed in at Mandan in the west and Fargo in the east will be restarted upon their journeys. Efforts are also being made to re open the Manitoba division of both the Great Northern and Northern Pa cific, but it will be several days be fore traffic can resume normal move ment. While reports so far have been meager and many remote points have not been heard from, it is the general belief that not more than eight or 10 people perished throughout the storm swept region. A family of four is re porteq to have perished near Minot and two of three others are said to have been frozen to death in different localities. The loss of stock is hard to esti mate. Reports from Dickinson repre sents the loss at from 25 to 30 per cent while rumor puts it in other localities at a much higher figure. It will be several days before any definite in formation in tihs regard can be obtain ed. There has been a good deal of suf fering among new settlers, many of whom arrived but recently and were ill-prepared to stand the severe weath er. Relief committees of the older inhabitants have taken charge of this matter and are doing their best to al leviate the distress of new comers. CHARGED WITH WIFE MURDER.

Seattle, March 17.-Mail advices from Calbayoga, Samar, under date of January 26, contain the following: Major Rosales, who recently sur rendered at Calbayoga, says that if Lukban had been successful in de feating the Americans in, Samar, he had intended to constitute himself em peror, and his minor officers as princes under his authority, thereby placing the island under an absolute mon archy. There was no idea of consti tuting a republican form of govern ment. Asked if he considered Lukban a pa triot, Rosales said he did not. Asked as to how he reconciled the monarchial form of government pro posed by Lukban with the independ ence he had previously stated he be lieved in, he stated sometime ago he made up his mind that the majority of Filipinos in Samar needed a gov ernment of that sort. With a sudden burst of frankness, he said that he now believed that the Americans would give the people of Samar as good a government as they needed, and that he, for that reason as much as because of the difficulty in obtain ing supplies, has surrendered himself.
