BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE RAILROAD SUFFERS FROM COU WEATHER TRAINS RUNNING SLOW TO AVOID ACCIDENTS AND EVERY PRECAUTION TAKEN. New Theory as to Cause of Broken Rails Advanced by Experts—More Cold Weather.' Promised ext Week. The Past three weeks have been the hardest in the history of railroad ing in the states of North and South Dakota. The enormous expenses in curred in the keeping the tracks and rolling stock in condition for use has gone deeply into the appropriations tor the maintenance of way for this year. Reports from the roads in South Dakota state that the roads in that section have been nearly put out of service by the numerous broken rails. One particular instance was in that' of the Milwaukee ro between Aber deen and Milbank, a distance of 96 miles, where over 900 rails are said to have been broken by a flat wheel on a car. This one line of breaks set back all trains on that line and compelled the company to run their trains by way of Sioux City, Mitchell and Aberdeen. The Great Northern in this state has likewise been up against a stiff proposition. During the last two weeks, it is said, they have taken out on the division between Devils Lake and Minot, 27 carloads of broken rails. This consists of a short division, iand if the rest of the line has suffered in comparison to th-a above the number and quantity of rails taken out must have reached an enormous figure. The Northern Pacific has had its share of the troubles and since the cold weather commenced not a train has bean in on time and the majority have been running as late as from two to fifteen hours. Today's trains are running from three to seven hours late, and last night's No. 1 is running today as No. 3. Causes of Broken Rails. Experts are coming forward with tho statement that the cause of so many broken rails is not due entirely to the brittleness of the steel when at a very low temperature, but really is due to the heaving and changing of position of the ground. The heav ing of the ground when frozen may lift one part of a rail and depress at another point until great stress is brought upon the slender steel. Then when the heavy running gear of the engines pass over the point of great est tension the condition of the •earth and rigid position of the rail loses all elasticity and the broken rail is the result. SUFFRAGE FACES FIGHT. Bitter War for Votes for Women Will Be Fought Out in First Ligislature. PHOENIX, Ariz., Jan. 13.—Woman suffrage question probably will oc? casion the hardest struggle in the first legislature of the new state.

Radical De'mocratic legislators fa vor the proposed bill while the con servatives oppose it. STATION AGENT STILL MISSING. Police, Bonding Company and Depot Officials Look for M. D. Nealy. ST. PAUL, Jan. 13— The where abouts of M. D. Nealy, the missing ticket agent of the Union depot com pany, St. Paul, are still unknown to the police, the officials of the rail roads and the bonding company. Last night A. W. Trenholm, presi dent of the Union Depot company, said that the last report received) from the auditors making the inves tigation was that the shortage was not less than $3,500, and that much work had yet to be done by the ex aminers. W. H. McGowan, auditor for the Northern Pacifie, said last nigfot that Nealy left the attice as soon as he began the investigation, saying he had been called home by his wife. Mr. McGowan says that Nealy has not been seen since nor did his wife call for him after he, McGowan, had entered the office.
