CHICAGO CARS TIED UP
Snow, Rain and SIcct Coat Electric
Wires With Ice and Hinder the

Down Through Prairies; "
CHICAGO, Jan. 22. A severe storm o
alternating rain, sleet and snow, which
commenced Just before midnight last
night, caused one of the worst tlc-ups this
city has known In many years. But few
telegraph wires were working out of the
city today in any direction, there being no
communication whatever with the East.
Inside the city, telephone communica
.tlon was badly crippled and the electric
street-car lines were almost out of com
mission. The elevated roads were still
greater sufferers. Many passengers on the
Aurora line of the Chicago Electric Rail
roads wore compelled to remain all night
in the depots, when the road ceased op
orations, on account of the storm. Large
commission brokerage houses, which ordi
narily use from 20 to 30 wires leading to
all parts of the country, were unable to
send a message in any direction and were
without advices from other parts of tho
The Weather Bureau -announces that the
storm was moving slowly eastward, with
the center just north of Indianapolis. It
was predicted that the area of the low
barometer would surely move eastward,
although the precipitation might be ex
pected in this section for another 24 hours.
The railways are in a better condition
to contend against the sleet and snow
than the electric lines, which were at
times during the day In desperate straits.
On some of the lines running east of here
hundreds of miles of railroad wires were
down, and the dispatchers were having a
trying time in moving trains.
Great trouble 'was experienced today by
people who use electric lines in the outly
ing sections of the city to reach their
places of employment. The great steel
mills in South Chicago were barely able
to muster enough men to operate all of
their departments early in the day. and
for a time some of them were closed.
Tonight strcetrcar service had assumed
normal conditions. All day long every
avallablo man was put to work to clear
away the ice which formed on everything
exposed. This evening the sleet storm
subsided and wis followed by a fall of
snow. Little difficulty was experienced
in disposing of the snow, and all trains
were running on schedule time.
Snow and colder weather are predicted
for tomorrow, but it is forecasted that
the worst of the storm has passed.

enter. In the upper harbor, few boats
were moving and the ferry-boats ran irregularly.

From Army Officers.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 22. (Special.)
Members of the House committee on
military affairs have In their keeping
a bill to restore the canteen In the
Army. It was introduced without flour
Ish of trumpets by Representative Ed
ward DeV. Morrcll, of Pnlladclpnla.
There is more than a possibility that
the committee -will screw Us courage
up to the point where it meets convlc
tlon and report the measure favorably
but the report. If it comes, will make
its appearance only after the committee
room has been the scene of a battle.
It is probable that Mr. Morrcll Is In
a better position' to contend for the
canteen than any other Northern mem
ber of Congress. Mr. Morrcll is a Re
publican and his district Is practically
filled with Republicans, a fact that is
disclosed conclusively by the election
returns which show that he received
six votes for every one cast for his op
ponent. The anti-canteen element might
influence some votes in the Philadel

task to muster enough to defeat the

intimates that the lawmakers should

"1 was greatly interested In the
prayer of tho Senator that we on this

the suggestions of the Senator arc in
support of a bill Introduced by Mr.
Hearst four years ago."
Clay said that Mr. Aldrlch had misin

Clay's remarks had been "along; the

Clay added that the Republican Prw
ident had adopted a plank from the
Democratic platform. Aldrlch contend
ed that Mr. J I oars t could not "be robbed
of the credit -for originating- this groat
"panacea for the public ills."
"Docs the Senator mean to say that
the Republican President got his
fchemc from Mr. Hearst?" Bacon
asked, and Bailey suggested that Aid-
rich and the President should got to
gether and agree upon a bill in the
exact words of the President, which
could lie passed without difficulty. Yet
Mr. Bailey admitted that he knew of
no consummation more difficult of ac
complishment than this.
"The Senator from Rhode Island Is
nothing It not conservative, the Presi
dent is nothing If not emotional," he
said. So far as Mr. Hearst was con

his policies were distasteful to Aldrlch
and his friends. On the Democratic side
some might accept and others might re

Aldrlch returned to the discussion of
Mr. Hearst, saying that In his position
he so far overshadows others that It
was generally recognized that he or
Mr. Bryan must be, the leader of his
party In the next campaign.
"Now that the Senator ha been so
good as to tell us who will be the
