Out of the Snow.
EXTRACTS FROM THE DAILT EKCOCD OF
AN EXILE FROM PORTLAND.
Orcgonian, Jan. 8th.
In writing, now that it is all over,
about the experience of the put three
weeks, there is little to tell ef general
fact concerning th- blv.-k&de, tho work
of rising it, the rescuers with food, etc.
What remains to tell, after all that has
been printed from day to day, while the
public RympathyatrinlttLinJvroraanJ anj.cvon some oH.v:Guld
dividual were eagerly reading every
word, is the story of each day's inci
dent, and such other oddr and bits as
have not yet been served np to those
The bra"e men of the Cascade locks
have had recognition, the state of the
thermometer Jias been elal oratory set
forth; everybody knows that a hun
dred and fifty people wpre caught in
ths snow, and held three weeks; every
body knows that all thssa people, as
well at these held back by tha block
ado, though not actually in drifts, are
now rejoicing at their delivery. It
only remains to give the recerd of each
day in order to shew how we all livsd
under circumstances so new, strange
Ihe following record is cot long
drawn. It was written with csld
fingers, and barely serves to recall ths
happenings, small and great; in the or
der of thoir occurrence. If anything
marfsoem too trifling to be dignified
by print, my excuse must ba that it all
seemed either strikingly disagreeable
or else drell enough to entertain:
Wednesday, Dec 17. At nooa .we
arrived at TiieD-illas from 'he' east,
having toiled along all night, and
found the snow very heavy from Uma
tilla junction, w'rere the train waited
a long time for the Short Lir.e connec
tioit. We hopeful! availed the smok
ing, dinner al the Umatilla house, aud
found the snow a cause for jokes and
rallies, norer thinking far a moment
that it would worry us so sorely and
so long. After dinner tin passengers
were bundled inle; the cars and the
train pulled out upon the high trestle,
everyousj mornentarilr expecting to
come on toward Portland. , We could
get no information; nu 'one could get
back to the hotel: it was exasperating
totkoie who wanted to be moving
about. Probably mors than one rest
less soul burned to beguilo the time at
the billiard table, and regretted thft
impossibility sf spending money.
Certainly th crowd, whe pulled back
at tupper time, was in a bad humor.
It was not then known whether or not
we were t move out, thoujh Conduct
or Lyon told us btforo bedtime- that
we would not go till morniasj. The
aveeing was given to pool playing by
some, while others goasipped around
the stove until all went to bed oa the
car. It was our last pleasant evening,
and we growled as math in the en
joyment of it as we did when the real
troub'o began. The American traveler
can ill brook dfloy, and tho American
gfawIcT will rjrowl as heartily over a
day as he cin over three weeks.
Thursday, 18th It still snowed as
we pullvd out from The Dalles at 6:40,
with a mw plow aud three locsiuo
tives hauling car train. Doubts had
crept into usme minds, but all were
tolerably cheerful as wo rolled with a
muffled sound through the fluffy snow,
suro that the snow plow as gaing along
ahead of us and believing that we
ahould follow it to Portland. Hood
rivar was passed all right, and at
Yiriito word came that the plow was
at Wytth. Still merri.y rolled we on
for two miles, when, suddenly there
was a throb and a shock, and a grnrr
al getting up to see what baa happen
ed. It was an avalanche, and both
engines wera imatherrd in a snow
bank that went spilling itself over the
trps of the boilers. It was a bad loak
out, but ths shovels were put to work
and we were told that soon the ob
stacls would be out of tha way. It
was ten o'clock when tba snow slide
caught the engine, and tha snow was
bath falling and driftiag so that the
afternoon's work amounted to little
and resulted in nothing. A box ef
bread and meat, which Lyons bad put
on at The Dalle, was distributed at
dark to tho hungry crowd. Lyons and
Wallace started down the road, and
nearly avsrybody went to bed wonder
ing hat would happen next. Tha
car was sot yet cold, and so, with cigars
and story telling, the night wore on
with thoso who hoped, and waited, and
Friday, 19. Still snowing. Te-day
we had one m-al. It was brenlgat on
a sled from Hood river. The men
came nine miles and arrived at 2
o'clock in the acrnoon. This one
meal brought b theni consisted of two
biscuits apiece .d a small chunk of
meat furnished by a hog whose misfor
tune it was to be in Hood river at this
lime. The fat mrat would have dis
gusled anybody but a hungry man or
net eat it. I think tlm ai one of
the hungriest days; so it may be seen
that there' was no intense suffering
from hunger. It is not pleasant to
have one tueal a day, and this is some
thing one dots not relish; but the difl-
erence between starving and eating one
meal a day u as great as that between
the sun and moon. Lyons returned
from Wyeth, but wo tauld learu noth
Saturday, 20. Still Snowing. We
hear that a snow-plow is coming from
The Dalles, and this is oar daily in
stallment of hope. Yesterday it was
somewhat whispered about in tha tram
that there was om2 meat in the ex
press car consigned to somebody down
the road. The expressmen, faithful to
their charges, had been denying this,
but when it came to absolute hunger,
with the children crying and the grown
up kickers kicking, thay weakened,
and there was a greedy break for the
meat. It was found that there wa3 a
quarter of beef and one mutton carcass,
as well as some fifty jackrabits. Im
migrants aud all hands made a break
for that meat aud shortly fires argre
blazing where the snow had been dug
.way, and the cooking went forward.
What would have lasted three days
was now consumed in cne, and those
who growled most hid away for to
morrow tho largest pieces of meat.
A few more men went down the road
today, and when Lyons (jam t bactwej
learned that there- were elevnn crippled
Hngiues fcatterd alon;; within the
fourteen mile immediately seuthof u.
The coal gave out to-day, and it is ex
plainad to us that the ppein tho cars
are charged with salt aiid-water to run
tun days; therefore we may net nspe
for -any more warmth. The stovei,
which must no be frd with wood, are
boxed up. in the end on the car and
shed no warmth beyond the rue lined
box nithin which they ar confined.
At night Mr. Ilouser, the gsod natur
ed oonimeroi.il man, gave the ladies a
tea party out of his sa.tiple cae, and
all went to bed so much the warmer
or a very cold night.
Sunday 21. This, is our first Sab
bath in tha snow bank and we have
two preachers oh the train. The one
in the emigrant car made a pious talk,
I am told, while the one in the sleeper,
notbiing sufficiently encouraged and
not wishiug to force the matter beyond
the majority desire, was content to
help a'ong soma gospel singing late in
the evening. A few more men started
down tha toad, and tha business ef
wallowing through the snow shoulder
dep to cut wood brcame a serious
matter. Some of the passengers felt
like holding an indignation meeting.
They had worked themselves into a
xtati of miud in which they thought
ther had been neglected. They began
to boil with the noliou that somebody
was tr)ing to freeze and starve them,
and that the railroad authorities were
"Doth incompetent and iudiOVrent to
their fate. They were not a bad lot of
fellows, but they were looking at a bad
ptospect, and when they sent for ma to
draw op some resolutions of indigna
tion, I did not feel hard about it that
they looked upon me as an "accomplice
of the enemy," because I ried to show
them that thoir proposed course would
be wholly ineffective, even supposing
it were not unreasonable. They had
gone far enough already to set the
gentle Mrs. Russell (whoe baby wa.
sick) arying; and soma others of tha
ladies went into centers to hide their
tears. There was Mrs. Fitch, hurry
ing to catch the boat for San Francis
co to jsin her sick husband in southern
California, and thtra the shrinking
Mrs. Macken, so anxious to meet her
husband in Portland she had not seen
for two years. It was no won Jer they
felt "blue." Somehow tie "iudigna
tion meeting broke up," and it is pleas
ant U think that the "indijnators" are
still my friends and believe that ray
fatalism is as good as their anxiety.
Lyons has so overexerted himself by
going and coming in the mow, that he
is in bed with a chill. He stood out
in a snow bank on the pcint behiK'd
us to Sag the plow wo had reason to
think was coming, and it abont used
him up. He used a pistil, knowing
that in bucking snow the engine ceuld
be brought to a halt onl; by souad.
With Laous sick, it ii no wonder the
the women and children i;et down
hearted. Te day a raid is made n a
lot of eastern oysters in cans; and,
after tba waste of meat yesterdsy, a
commusary is established, so that no
one gta more than another,. Triors is
one can of oysters for each two people,
and without knives, forks or spoon, a
supper is made. A little salt is all the
seasoning, but they are good. The
front engine, out of fuel and water,
"died" to day.
Monday, 22. Tho storm is worse
than ever, and all tie work dont hith
eito was undone last night. Ten or
twelve men started down the road thi
morning, among them Houser, Holmes
LGrandoand Kercheval. At noon a
toboggan load of food from Hood River
arrived, aad at 3 in the. afternoon
thirty five men from the Cascades came
in with thirty pounds eacV of bread,
flour and canned goods. Some of the
brave fellows are neirlj froz8n,yet we
caa but remark, what a fine lot of men
tbey are. Most of them are hardy
salmon fiahers whe, in the fishing sea
son, go out in tho breakers in small
boats, and risk their lives daily. Two
fell by tha way, anrt are laid up at
Wyeth. Lyons uees. that there is
some awaiting ahead of us, and
going through ths train announces in
etch car that every able bodied man
must get ready to walk to the C-iscades
in the mornmg. Ihis order creates
some consternation, but all see the jus
tice of ii; for none can expect men tu
face the storm and bring food to such
aaroable to go find get what they want.
The women feel badly to see the men
Eoaetar, Gtrapjielland Place, are.
doing the cooking andjdistributisg of
ilia rations. The stove in the baggige
car ii good enough to fry bacon, even
upon the bare top of it.
Tuesday, 23 This is the morning" of
the great exodus. Same sixty men
got ready to accompany tha thirty
&o rescuers, and we all turn outaarly
to help them tip up their feet in gunny
sack, pieces of blanket and towels.
The bellrope of ths car is taken and
untwisted for string, and we are busy
for an hour getting thom off. All ar
brave, but we hato to sea Newkirk, de
licate as a woman, Car J well, with luir
bago, Galbraith, who soems nothing
bat nerve, and Cullen raised in Geor
gia, go forth. Yot they will net stay
back. Stanborry's voice gets trma
lous a he thinks of his onn lung, but
he pushes on to tee his faiuily, from
which ha ha been separated several
weeks. There is one woman who i
bound to 'go a Swede, v. ho is hand
tome and hardy but tha conductor
sets his foet down that she shall not,
which is right; for, strong aud hearty
as she is, it is clear that the snow and
ice would soon weigh down her skirts
and mako travel impossible. It is
curious to see her sulk about it, sit
with a newspaper over her head and
refuse breakfast. Presently Lyons
comes in and leaning back to contain
pinta her, says in his hearty way,
"Well, Princes Louise, if you are
bound to go. come along with me, but
dresi like a man." Hereafter she will
be known as "The Prncrss." There
are fivo young married coaples on the
train thrte in tho Bleeping cars and
two among the emigrants. Tilden of
G Jdondale, an'd Baale of Pendleton,
leave their young wives in thi frozn
honeymoon, and go with the others.
I am left with the cripplts, tha weno
en, ths children and the old men. We
havo two moderate rations to day, and
towaras night, Mr. Hobart, master
mechanic of the road, comtsdown from
above. He tells us that he will reach
us with bis snow plow and men and 11
to-morrow, and room is made for his
forty tired shovelers to lerp. Mrs.
Kellogg is sick, and her hasband is
doing all he ean to cheer her. They
have come from La Grande to visit
friends in East Portland, and he is
philosophically inclined to wonder
why he ever started on sach a pleasure
Wednesday, 24. It is still snowing,
and Hobart's mtn, unable to accom
plish any thing, are nierelv cutting
wood "enough to keep the engine in
fuel. Engineer Tuttle brought down
four chicknn, (which are old hens)
Some old woman up the road charged
1 apiece for thorn, but they will maka
good broth for the tics women ami the
children dprired of milk. We have
the luxnry of one potato today, and
since to-morrow will be Christmas,
Mrs. Macken brings otit some honey,
which has been left in her car. Mrs.
Fitch cheers the passengers by sing
ing, "We'retGaing Home To-morrow,"
which sentiment everyone deubts as
ihe awfully cold beds are resorted to
Thursday,,. 25. -It isrstill'coldiand;
unowiug. The first sound that greets
my waking ear is ,"Merry Christmas,
Henry," and I loek out between the
curtains to see a stalwart snow-shevel-er
trying to pull a frszaa boot upon a
ocklo,s foet. What a trarersty on
"Merry Christmas;" yet the spirit i
there, and the weary fellow sheveler
responds in a way to shame all pam
pered chanters of Christmas carols.
It Ja tha memory of cosy homes the
present is forgotten. We have bread
and bacoa, and as I go to the mail car
to help Major Duxbury fry somw oys
ters on a shovel, I tea the Prineess
down by a stump, boiliog one of the
old lics in a big black coffee pot for
the sick. Ah! Princess, you have the
goodness of your sex aad none of its
weaknes. Sorre hardy farmer will
get a good wife there. Superintendent
Donnelly says he will have us moved
in a little while, and he tells us that
sons ranchmen over on the Washing
ton territory side are snowed under to
a depth of twenty feet, and suffering
more than it is possible for ns. He
says setae cattle hare been -discovered
on an island in (ho river, and that
they will be killed and dragged across
the river for our eating. Then, men
come again from the Cascade Locks,
aud L-fOns returns with medicines, tell
ing us that we will havo another week
of it. We are no longer in the dark.
for ha brin23 can-lies. He also brings
tea or adozn "essential drugs and in
stals me drctor and nurse of the train.
Friday, 26. Ten more men went
down the road to day, including Colo
nel Skinner, the mail route clerk and
both express agents. We havo beef
from that killed on the island, and tho
rescuers go to work -a ell fed aud en
couraged. I have a sick baby on my
hands and a man in the smcoking room
who was hit in the pit of the stomach
with a shave1, at he fell nt the shork
of the engine eollission at Hood River.
The poor fellow is a car painter from
The Dalles, and has no business out in
tho cold. He is patched np with med
icinos and hot drinks, but looks like
death as he lies there in the cold. At
4:30 wa palled back to Vionto, where
thcra is a fat Irish woman cooking in
tha section hous.
Saturday,27. It is much warmer,
and we have hot biscuit for breakfast
from the section houe, and Mr. Dux
bury goes to tho profligate extent of
buying pies frern the thrifty dance.
It is stormy, and the snow flurries kcVp
going up and coming down the moun
tain. Thiea. hogs and some flour are
hauled down from Hoed River, and
the princess is installed as cook in the
section bouse, owing to the tendency
of the fat woman to charge high prices
for small rations, a well as t- seeming,
' foret the difference between her
apples and chickens and the mmninv'i
flour. In the emigrant car a yeung'
woman gets sick. She looks dirty and.
discouraged, poor thing; so I loek wise
and give her some homeopathic pills,
which cure her. The breaks of sun-
bhine through the west make Bier
standt pictures against the dark moun
tains, Vith their frostwork. The hov
elersbegin to gat mutinous" because
they have no more meat. We hear of
tho death of the engiueor (Hudson) at
Mesier, and wa ge to bed gloomy.
Prescribe drops of whisky on a lump of
sugar tor tho baby's cough. There is
just whisky enough in tha outfit for
one very small baby with a very small
Sunday, 28. The old painter is
again in hospital, and we have a case of
smallpox. The suhjret is one of the
emigrant car brides, and wo move her
to the express ear. There, is skary
talk of smallpox, aud it takes "a deal
of assumed wisdem to keep the little
excited colony from breaking out in
expressions of alarm. A caboose is
off the track near by; the storm has
blown tha track full whore it wis
shoveled out, and everything stems to
be against wr. Even Robert, the Pull,
man carporler,'tlls George, the oth
er porter, of his dream that we shall
not reach Portland till tho 14th of
January. They both appear to be"
gloomily affected by thVdream.
Monday, 29. It is colder, but there'
is sunshine. There is a rowinwhich
a hengry man, a biscuit and a pistol
fij-ure. The biscuit is saved. Tha fat
woman goes ou baking'pies on a com- '
premise arrangement, whilo wo sit all
day in the car looking at the far away
shining summit of the mountain across
thejriver, as it coldly '-jleams like the,, f
fretting, on wedding .cake.The nw.Iygl -.
ra-trned couples observe IbeTsJrnuafw
and one the brides slily kisses her7

slightly warmtr. We send for wore

Tuesday, 30. We sit around in
blankets aad hear that the Northern

Wednesday, 31 The Northern

12:30. Engineer Bogue andperin
lendent Buckley came in, covered with

We feel good and expect to gt out at

Friday, 2. Moved again after

shone upon sixteen locomotives at
work on the point. The men were
cutting wood all night. There are
new working nearly four hundred nun .

Saturday, 3. Awoke early, while it
is yet dark by the p'ea.ant voice of
Sanborn, purchasing agent of the N.
P., who invites mn over to Sam An'
derson's car, where the day is spent
most hnppily. Flanders, tho Pullman
conductor, now a passenger in Mon
roe's car, disburses tho medicines to
day. He is a trained drug clerk, and -a
better doctor than I. Pulled baek
to the Cascades, whero there is plenty
to eat at the government mess house,
and where Messrs. Carroll and Brown
lee mate us mere than welcome. Ex
perience the novel sensa'.ion of sating
with knives and forks. The weather
changes, and a chinook wind thaws the
ice. Tons of it comrs crashing olf tho
car during the night. Miss Nickels
endures every discomfort, but ssy
never an impatient word, and we a'l
gatbor about her section to' absorb
somewhat of ber calmness. She ha

The last spike excursion is not a

These daily jottins in ths life of an
exile undergoing an entirely new ex
perience will interest some while they
teaeh others how niuih can be endured
