BLE COLD WAVE
Extent, Long Duration
RO?GHO?T THE SOUTH
Valley, Lake Regions and the
Southeast the Minimum Temperatures
For Ten Days Were Lower Thai
Ever Before Recorded..
WaBbiugton, Jan. 30.?The following
special bulletin was i:?ued by the Weather
Bureau this afternoon on the cold wave of
January 23dito 3(th:
The condition of extreme cold that has
prevailed over the country during the past
week has been remarkable for its extent,
duration and severity while the tempeature
over nearly the entire United States east of
the Kocky Mountains has been greatly
below the normal during the Jwhole week,
the deficiencies in some sections ranging |
from 30 to 40 for several days.
COLDEST ON RECORD.
Throughout the Ohio Valley and the |
Lake Regions on the 25th and the Carolina,
Central and Northern Florida, Georgia,
Alabama, audEasternTennesse on the 28th
and 2'.<th Ithe maximum temperatures re?
ported were lower than any previously
recorded by the bureau during the last ten J
days of January.
The conditions were especially severe
throughout the Southern States, the line
of freezing temperature extending nearly
to Jupiter, Fla., and the temperature as
far South as the Gulf Coast, falling to 14
degrees below freezing and continuing 10
degrees or more below for several days.
Following are some of the minimum
temperatures occurring in the regions
where the cold wave was most pronounced,
On the 25th, degrees below zero: Chi?
cago, 20; Milwaukee and Sault St. Marie,
18; Indianapolis and Detroit, 14; Cincin
natti, 10; Pittsburg, 8. On the 28th,
above zero: Tampa, 30; Jacksonville, 22
Mobile and Atlanta, 6; Knoxville, 2.On the
29th, above zero: Jupiter, Tampa, 28;
Jacksonvill, 22; Key West, 50; below zero,
7 The period of cold weather was attended
by a persistent condition of abnormally
?high barometeric pressure, readings of 31.5
inches and above, the highest readings on
record being reported from the extreme
northwest. A storm that developed over
Florida on the 2?th and moved northeast
along the Atlantic coast was an efficient
factor in producing the low temperature
in Florida on the 28th and 29th. This
storm developed great energy in its pas?
sage along the Middle Atlantic and New
England coasts causing high and heavy
enows in the Middle States and New En?
gland: Boston reported about 14 inches
of snow: Northfield, 9; Portland, 9; Al?
bany and New York city, 10; Philadelphia,
7; and Washington, 5,
IMMIGRATION BILL PASSED.
The House Agrees to the Conference Re?
Washington, D. C, Jan. 27.?By a
vote of 131 to 118, the house to-day agreed
to the conference report on the Immigra?
tion bill, which embodied substantially a
new measure, being different in some re?
spects, from either the Senate or House
The principal objection to the bill was
the clause requiring immigrants to read
and write "in the language of their native
or resident country." This, it was pointed
out, would prevent several classes of peo?
ple in Europe aud in Central America and
Mexico from gaining admission to the
United States because they do not speak
either of the Languages to which the clause
limits them. It was admitted that the
language was intended to prevent the
coming of tl ie great body of Russian Jews,
OUTLOOK IN THE SOUTH.
A Practical Railroad Man Looks For
New York, Jan. 27.?E. St. Jolm, vice
president and general manager of the Sea?
board Air Line, who is in this city, sayd he
takes a hopeful view of the outlook in the
south. He declares that a marked change
in sentiment is now apparent. Improve?
ment can be seen, but the greatest gain
is the confidence for the future. "I do
not look for any great or sudden stride to
be made." he declared, "as the new ad?
ministration must be seated and the tariff
and other questions settled first, and people
will wait before taking important steps.
But the whole south is ou the eve of great
prosperity. The past depression ie now to
be followed by advancement."
