DRIVING STORMS OF SNOW AND bLEET , Oimiiliig of the To.nth Street Via duct to Travel mill Tratllo Social I'cnlnruH ut tlio Ony. The ndvcnt of the now 'year in Omaha brouRlit with It a distinctive feituro of its ' own In tbo way of weather Unit was much inoro noticeable than any of "tha special ob servances mndo of the occasion by the citi zens The old year prepared to sink Into the past In n misty shroud of nature's own wearing , but the rnptil approach of the young blizzard that wns to usher in the new year rendered f tbo closing hours of 1890 considerably live lier , atmospherically speaking , than Is wont to bo the case nt death bed sccnoi. Tbo mercury began to fall rapidly about 8 o'clock Wednesday evening , and ns the wind i ! increased in velocity in a corresponding de gree , the Ucnso cloud of mist that bnd enshrouded the city during the latter part of the afternoon was changed nt midnight to a driving , pelting storm of sleet. Tbo I coy blasts tore around the street corners nnd up nnd down tbo alloys , pene trating every nook and crevice , nnd suc ceeded very well In malting frxitbulls of bo- Intod podestrinns returning homo nfter fol lowing out tbollino-houoreJcustom of watch ing Ilia old year die. From reports received ut the local signal oflleoit w.is found that the storm was gen eral over llio entlro northwest. Snow was reported in small quantities , accompanied by high winds. The wind was reported blowing from the west and northwest , with indica tions of a cold simp lasting several days. A telegram was received nt the signal of- 0cofrom Washington conveying tbo information mation tbat the temperature would fall to 10 ° abovozoro by thH inornlng , bub the indi cations were that it would full considerable below that point. Small wonder was It , in view of these cir cumstances , that tbo Ice man nnd coal dealer smiled benignly as they bid the new year a liearty welcome , while tbo average citizen pulled the coverlets more tightly over his iicad anil debated in his own mind whctucr n new your was sueb a desirable acquisition after all. Thoughts of the hnppiness and prosperity that the old year had brought to Omnhawero not In the least lessened by recollections of tbo balmy December weather Just passed , but tbo rich promises held out for tbo future werosufllclentto cause n feeling of thankful ness , not only for tlio past , but that n new urn of prospective brightness hud been en tered upon. As tlio clock in the high school tower an nounced the death of the old nnd birth of the now year bells in all parts of the city nnd tbo whistles of every engine in the railroad yards added their quota to the conglomera tion of sounds that were turned loose on the midnight nir. It lasted for fully flvo minutes , when each v > ai'tlcipatit evidently considered bis full duty done nnd silence reigned once more , with the solo execution of the ele ments' roijuiem to the old year. " "When inornlng dawned snowdrifts were piled across the streets at frequent inter vals , f.nd tbo motormcn and gripmen started out to clear the street car trades of the ob structions , During the first few morning hours street car travel wns anything but satisfactory , but sweepers were sent over tbo lines nnd the effects of the blizzard be came less noticeable. The dnv hnd a Sundny-lllto nppenranco , as the business houses were closed nnd tbo streets were n deserted nir. Now Year's customs were very generally confined to home gatherings' nbout the family hearthstone. L.CSS New Year's cnlling was .dono than it usually the case , although n few social events were .successfully curried out to tbo enjoy- inentof favored guests. The hotels treated their gucsts.to . a special nprcnd in honor of tbo day. Quietreigned on every bund , and during the afternoon the weather coincided with the prevailing char acteristic. The police Judge held n brief morning ses sion for tbo benefit of tbo few unfortunates whoso exuberant spirits had called for mu nicipal control during tbo night , nnd after that oven tbo police station witnessed no happenings of au eventful nature.

As n natural consequence , then , the reception Which wns tendered the young men of Omaha nnd nil friends of the association last night was one of genuine liospltnlity nnd Christian good will.

The Heading coal and Iron company bnvo issued a circular notifying the trade that on and alter January 1 the production of "small stove" coal will bo discontinued , and that "chestnut" coal will thereby bo unproved in size and quality. All the operators have agreed to do the same , therefore , hereafter "small stove" will : iot bo obtainable. The following reasons for this action were given this morn- tig by a prominent oftlciul of the company ; "Tho small steve si/o became immensely popular ns soon ns it was introduced by the Heading company several years ago , It Is a size be tween stove ami chestnut. Tbo former was not satisfactory to consumers because It did not work well in self-feeding ranges and fur naces , being n trifle too largo , while the hit- tur , though very desirable. In this respect , was thought , by householders to ho expensive for the reason that it was consumed inoro rapidly than tbo larger sizes. The small steve proved lo bo a good feeder and n ton was thouirht to give better results in heating than the same amount of chestnut. Hence the consumer would have nothing but the small stove , and the retailers being flooded with orders for it , they in turn made such largo requests for it of the wholesalers that t he latter demanded about five tons ot small steve to ono of any other Itlnd from the collerios. Of course tbo colleries could not till the orders in these pronortions , as they nro able to mnko but a limited amount of each size nnd the failure to supply the kind of coal demanded caused constant complaint and irrltationainongdoal- crsnud consumers. For instance , a dealer , to get 100 tons of small steve coal , would be compelled to tnlco along with it 500 tons of other kinds which ho did not wnnt. In order to protect themselves the colleries would sell but n limited amount of small stove , unless orders were innde at the snmu tlmo for other si/.cs In proportion. This became such n iiuisanco that retailers mid mlddlo men im portuned the operators to discontinue Its -ya ductlon and tbo request has been granted. ' ' A TJtll'SAL 1'nstor and Congregation Pall Out Ov sr Thrir Now Church. Mvcov , On. , Jan , 1. An nrchltcctural question whether there should bo ono row of pillars in a church or two rows , appar ] enlly n trivial matter is nt the bottom of a popular Savannah pastor's transfer to nn- ether licld. The Houston Street Methodist congregation has a handsome now church in courses of erection. Kov. David RIley , the pastor this year , raised several thousand dollars lars for the fund ami got tbo build ing started. IIo labored earnestly and with great success , nnd his congregation appreciated his work. The plans for tbo building provided lor ono row of columns in n certain part of tlio church. Some of the members thought there ought to bo two rows , The pastor considered one row sufllcicut. A division nroso over tlmt question and those who favored having two rows pot tbo opin ions of different builders who recommended two rows. Tbo division being close nnd ex citing much bitterness among the brctbcrn , Air. itiloy remarked that rather than see a breach in the congregation grow out ot such n small thing ho preferred to go somewhere else. andalthouKh thn congregation had asked the bishop to sen a him back ho was , nttho recent session of the conference in Macon , transferred to a new charge. onieors Elected nnd a Quantity of IttiHliiess Transacted.

Una tbo senatorial election occurred ono : noiith ago ho would hnvo been easily dcfi'al- cd. Then the republicans were illvidod but now the division is within tbo ranks of the > oonlo's party. Three distinct combinations nnvo been 'onnetl and two of them have already been liurstcd. The various candidates for the sen ate have grown suspicions , uiuln combination 'ias been formed against Judge Potter , who is bought to bavo the most strength. Tbo seeming certainty of the election of an alliance nmn to succeed Senator Ingnlls has caused ho "old guard" to lese its bond , and tbo , vomen who were such potent factors in tbo stnto campaign nro beginning to nmlco trouble. \Vhothcror not this condition of jill'ulrs was brought about through tbo manipulation of Senator Ingulls' managers Is a question , but Die people's party leaders freely attmlt tbat the light Is nioro complicated than ever. The Alliance elected ninety-two represcnta- ivcs , nine more than enough to elect a sen ator , but there nro something like twenty > vho remain unpledged. None of them were iistructcd nt the nominating conventions. Judge W. .A.

Within the last week Tudgo Frank Dostcr of Marlon county has bci-ii brought out by his friends and the women arc engaged in booming him. The alliance is also determined to elect a state winter. Governor Elder , who was clectod to the egislnturo from Franklin county , will un doubtedly bo elected speaker of the house. His position will give him prcstigo and ho will have the additional advantage of being a schooled politician. Mr. Willll's campaign is being managed by S. W.
