PASSENGER TELLS OF
V EXPERIENCES WHILE
. :'.'. .:.,' ON STALLED TRAINS
William Hamilton Cllne, general
manager^ for Innes and his band, with
his wife.'came through from San Fran
cisco yesterday afternoon on the first
train over the coast line since last
weeki Mr. Cllne left San Francisco on
Monday afternoon. It took him three
days and nights to make the Journey,
usually requiring but fourteen hours.
During the last twenty-four hours he
was on board the whole train load
lived on cheese and crackers and a few
had hard boiled eggs. The train was
then marooned at Burbank, only ten
miles from here, but for all the good
it did, he says, It might have been in
''."I. have been knocking, about over
the United States from ocean to ocean,"
said, Mr. Cline, "but I never struck
' anything • quite like this. I am not
familiar, with the general run of rail
road managements on the coast, but
it seems to me that some rather pe
culiar Incidents, happened In thia case
—some things that would never have
been permitted in the east.
"We left San Francisco Monday
evening. I now hear that the trains
out' on both Saturday and Sunday
wjere . then held up at Santa Barbara.
Of s this we were not told at the time.
The';' papers contained nothing along
this : line. Early Tuesday morning, we
' were', informed,, as wq reached Santa
Barbara, that we would not leave
there until afternoon. We found four
trains there ahead of us, and it looked
gloomy. "We went about sightseeing,
and at the^otter, about noon, we were
told that we would not leave until
Suffering in Day Cars
"That evening we went to bed in the
sleepers, expecting to be here by morn
ing,'but when daylight came we were
still in the same old station, and it
wias» raining hard. The diner, fortun
ately, was in operation. While those
in Pullmans were in comfort, there was
much suffering in the day coaches.
Many women and children were in act
i-sil want. «The passengers with more
-■■.ills made up purses, and then the
lallroad company, as is required by
your law, began feeding those who had
been there twenty-four hours. This
was expensive, and it only partially
lessened the burden, as they had no
where to sleep. Wednesday afternoon
the trains, it was announced, would
start for this city, and for hours we
hugged our cars and waited. The cars
wel-e formed into five sections, and one
by one, we left there. Some officials
were on No. 2 and they had our diner
taken away and attached to their train.
I barely had time to finish my luncheon
before It was cut off; my wife had to
run for it, and I was carried half a
mile before I could leave and rejoin
her. That's the last we ever saw of that
diner and the last meal we had until
we reached Los Angeles.
Stalled at Burbank
"Well, _we pulled out. crawled over
a track that would make a grapevine
seem straight, and finally reached Ven
tura. After a few minutes there, we
crept along and after dark reached
Burbank, There, we were informed,
we would have to wait, as the first Bec
tlon's engine had gone into the ditch.
The only wonder was that we all were
npt there; the track was simply fright
ful. The two sections behind us were
left at Ventura, the land slid Just after
we passed It.
' "Burbank is a promising place— but
it is all promise. There was no earth
ly show for a morsel of food, the rain
was falling In torrents, there was no
steam in the cars, it was cold and
raw and we were very much lacking
In creature comforts. We In the
sleepers again counted ourselves lucky
and did. what we could for the poor
people In the day coaches, some, of
whom had been in them since last
Saturday, without a chance to sleep
and almost nothing to eat. . One man
aboard got off at a little station and
purchased a box of crackers, which he
passed around. The buffet held out,
'and crackers and beer made our din
ner last night. We had about two
crackers apiece, ' and 'we were ■ con
sidered • the lucky ones. My wife and
I were among the .very few who had
, obtained luncheon; ! most of the Pull
man people had delayed lunching, and
so got. none, as; the officials stole th«
>ar. It waa cold and disagreeable, and
everyone turned to the berths as a last
resort for comfort.
"Then tre bucked up against Mr,
Pullman's employes. The conductor
said that until assur.y) that we would
not reach here last night, no one could
have a berth made down, My wife was
worn out, and I fixed her up In the
Smoking compartment on our sleeper,
only to be ordered out. Then 1 kicked,
i told the Pullman pertple thatlt w«u»
either sleep there or a berth, and after
several little chats with them and n
decided stand, our berth- was made
down. It was the only one In the caf
that was, too. The people grumbled
and kicked and pleaded, but It availed
nothing, the berths were left alone. Af
ter midnight the porters were told that
they might pull the seats out flat and
provide blankets, but no one disrobed,
ami it was a night of extreme discom
fort for some and downright misery for
others. We had a number of women
and several babies along, and I hate to
think of the suffering they endured,
when beds and forgetfulness were so
near. /; '..,■
"This morning we all arose hungry,
cross and cold. Having moved us, the
company was under no obligations to
feed us nny more, so we had to hustle.
One man had a can of fruit Jam, and
he passed that Rbout, the observation
car porter wrapped himself up In n.
mall sack and went through the down
pour to get some crackers, which he
obtained by a mile walk through the
seas of mud. He also returned with a
little cheese. A farmhouse sent*, boy
with some hard boiled eggs, at five
cents apiece, and a little bread and
butter at the unme per slice. He also
managed to furnish some weak coffee.
Most of us ate breakfast from crack
ers and beer. The poor little babies
cried for milk, and desperate efforts
were made by men to obtain It. We
finally managed to get some milk for
them. But when one baby developed
the whooping cough and Inoculated the
whole coachload of others It got pretty
near the lim.lt.
Change In Menu
"We had a change In our menu at
noon today. "We ate the crackers with
butter on them. Our devoted porter
skirmished this up somewhere, and
though It was pretty much like axle
grease, It went well to a hungry man.
"We started from Burbank about 1
o'clock, and It took us an hour or more
to run the ten miles to Los Angeles.
I don't know where the other two sec
tions of our train are, I hope they
stayed In Ventura where they might
possibly get some accommodations. I
don't want any more washouts In mine.
I went through the great flood In Kan

SHAPE THAN AT ANY
TIME DURING STORM
Conditions on the coast and valley
lines of the Southern Pacific are
worse, If anything, than they were a
day or two ago, according to reports re
ceived in Los Angeles last night. It
i 3 regarded as extremely doubtful If
traffic will be resumed on schedule
time before Saturday or Sunday.
Many of the passengers aboard the
stalled tralnß at Burbank yesterday
morning despaired of all Idea of reach-
Ing Los Angeles by rail within a reas
onable length of time, and so they
started out for Glendale by road. AH
available vehicles weretrushed into ser
vice, but notwithstanding a large num
ber of persons were forced to go afoot.
The roads are fearfully cut up and In
places Impassable, necessitating pas
sage through private grounds and orch
At Burbank several trains were tied
up on account of the condition of the
track. An engine was ditched, and for
hours Wednesday night water covered
the rails, in places being two and three
feet deep. Soledad pass, on the valley
line, is said to be In b.ad shape, stall
ing northbound and southbound trains.
Passengers who reached Los Angeles
yesterday described the scene at Bur
bank as one of the worst, If not the
worßt, known to this section of the
country. The accommodations, they
say, were very poor, and there was
scarcely anything to eat except cheese
and crackers. Drinking water also be
came scarce aboard train, so that male
passengers had to wade through the
mud and water to Burbank, get buck
ets and pack them back with water
for the relief of the women and chil
"We had a pretty tough time of It,"
said one person. "Our. train, No. 22,
left Ban Francisco Sunday morning
ovef the coast line. We had no trouble
until we reached the Salinas valley, be
low Pajaro. At this point we ran Into
b flood of water, which delayed us
three and a half hours. This same
trouble we encountered until we got
Into the mountains at Templeton.
"After crossing the mountains, we
got into San Luis Oblspo, being four
and a half hours late. We were there
notified that we would not be able to
get oqt of Santa Barbara, as train No.
20 was stalled at Surf. We were also
informed that the engine of No. 20 was
ditched by sand on the track.
"It was 1:30 o'clock Monday morn-
Ing when we reached Santa Barbara.
With six other passenger trains, we
were tied up there until 1 o'clock Wed
nesday afternoon, when a light train,
made up of a fifty-ton engine and four
coaches, started for Los Angelea to
test the various nils and temporarily
"I was a passenger on the light
train. We made a slow run from
Banta Barbara, feeling our way until
we reached Bun Fernando. We were
inur and a half hours late at that.
Chief Engineer Hastings of the South
ern Pacific was aboard the train and
gave orders at San Fernando to proceed
to Los Angeles with caution.

which Is In 11 very shaky condition,
and reached Burbank nt 7:13. We then
received orders to proceed to Los An
geles, find when we .got about a mile
and a quafter east of Hurbank our
engine ran Into a hand drift, which
could not be distinguished In the un
certain light, and was ditched.
".Word was sent to tios Angeles of
our stall, And a wrecking crew rnme
to our relief. The crew began work at
9 o'clock, continuing until daylight this
njornlng, but made no appreciable ef
fect, as the water and sand hampered
"Curing Wednesday night three const
line trains passed out of San Fernando
and were stalled behind our wreck.
All the while rain was falling In tor
rents. Residents 1 of Ilurbank say It
was the heaviest downpour since tho
commencement of the present storm.
The damage to the railroad, In the
opinion of experts, renders It uncertain
as to when safe repairs can be made."
It Is said more than 1,000 people are
stalled between Burbank and Santa
Barbara, Every hour's delay adds to
their hardships, according to report,
as a large percentage of them arc
forced to sleep In day coaches, At
ftatita Barbara the railroad company
has been supplying food for several
hundred persons. The hotels are filled,
It Is said. ..
Took to Public Roads
Among those who went from Bur
bank to Olendale by road, and then
boarded the electrlo cars and came
to Los Angeles yesterday were the
fifteen Snn Franciscans, comprising the
northern delegation to the grnnd coun
cil of the Royal Arcanum, now being
held In "this city. U. S. Grant and
family of San Diego, Walter Parker
and other well known persons, who
were passengers on the stnlled trains,
also came via the Glendale route.
The delegation to the grand council
of the Royal Arcanum went to the
rescue of the suffering passengers at
Burbank, acting In the capacity of a
commissary department nnd water bri
gade. C. L. Smith headed the dele
gation, which made up a purse and
purchased the entire stock of canned
goods, cheese, crackers, etc., of a res
taurant at Burbank, and then distri
buted the food among the women and
children aboard the trains.
John C. Wray, who has been attend
ing the legislature In Sacramento, was
the first of the stalled passengers to
reach Los Angeles yesterday. Early
In the morning he started out with a
pilot from Burbank and prepared the
way for the Royal Arcanum delega
tion to Glendale. The roads, he said,
are In fearful condition. Past Grand
Regent Gjinzendorfer of the Royal Ar
canum, who was driving a couple of
mules, got stuck on the way
and the crowd all agreed that
while he Is very successful In having
his speeches printed In advance of their
delivery by a Lob Angeles , morning
paper, he Is a lamentable failure when
It comes to steering the prides of old

ON LAKE CORNER THIRD
. AND LOS ANGELES STS.
Down on Third and Los . Angeles
streets yesterday, where the water
stood forming a good sized lake, an
enterprising firm conceived the bril
liant Idea of navigating a boat. Ac
cordingly a miniature yacht was put
in commission and floated gaily .on the
waters during the entire day.
A peculiar feature of the flood at
that comer, according to residents of
the district, is that extensive improve
ments, so called, were made on the
sewer there only a few months ago.

TELLER STILL CLAMORS FOR
la Not Willing for the Senate to Act
Upon Santo Domingo Treaty
By Associated Prau.
WASHINGTON, March 16.— Despite
the fact that it Is recognized that there
are not enough votes for the ratifica
tion of the Santo Domingo treaty, there
was a general return of Republican
members who have been absent. Sena
tors Lodge and Kittredge, who have
been away for a' few days, were In
their seats, and Senator Dolliver is
within reach If there should be a call
./After the. reading of the Journal Sen
ator. Teller asked If there were objec
tions to consideration of his resolution
of inquiry concerning Santo Domingo
affairs. Senator Cullom, who had risen
to move an executive session, said that
an opportunity would be given tomor
row for the consideration of the reso
"I know that," replied Senator Teller,
"but if we are called upon to vote on
the treaty this week we will have to
act without the Information."
"Well, I do not believe the Infor
mation we would get is worth much,
anyway," said Senator Cullom.
Senator^ Teller explained that he did
not want the resolution to lose its
place, and It, was agreed that he might
call it up tomorrow.
Morgan Makes Serious Charge
Senator Morgan occupied practically
the entire time in the dlscuslon of the
Santo Domingo treaty in executive ses
sion of the senate today. He charged
that William Nelson Cromwell of New
York, who was prominently connected
with the sale of the Panama canal
property to the United States, was the
prime mover in the scheme to influence
the United States in the financial af
fairs of the Dominican government. He
asserted that Mr. Cromwell was actua
ted by a desire to frustrate a plan of
a Mr. and Mrs. Reader, natives of Ala
bama, who are operating under the
name of the Reader syndicate, to get
certain concessions from the Domini
can government and to promote the
interests of a syndicate he represented,
which, it Is alleged, holds a mass of
claims against the Latin American re
publics, Including a large part of the
debts against the Dominican govern
The alleged disclosures were debated
all day and the senate is divided as to
whether Senator Morgan made a case.
The Democrats insist that he did, while
the leaders among the Republicans de
clare that the charges were made up
of a mass of matter which contained
no conclusive evidence that Mr. Crom
masters as follows: Arthur M. Free,
