COLD IN THE METROPOLIS.
The Streets of New York Rendered Al
most Impassible by tbe Late Storm.
New York, Jan. 26. This city is still
isolated this morning, telegraphic com
munication being only partially restored.
Large forces of men are at work clearing
tbe streets of fallen poles and broken
wires and the whole force of the police
and fire department are doing patrol
duty tcguard against fires.
As all wires within the city are still
down, the streets are rendered .almost
impassible by the fallen poles and
tangled wires.. It is believed that a large
force of men will have communication
nearly restored by the evening. The
weather is clear and cool this morning.
This afternoon associated press dis
patches from the west began to arrive
and were the first news dispatches from
the outside world since last night. The
ticket service in this city is still sus
pended and business at most of exchanges
almost at a stand still. Damage to
electrical companies in the city are esti
mated at half a million of dollais. All
wires between this city and Philadelphia
are still down.
To Ship Goods in Bond.
Washington, Jan. 24. Representa
tive Wilson, of Washington, today was
in consultation with Assistant Secretary
Spaulding, of the treasury, on the sub
ject of shipping goods in bond down' the
Columbia river. He presented a writ
ten statement showing the desirability
of an arrangement whereby the goods
could be shipped in bond from Upper
Columbia points outside the country,
and then back to ports on the coast, the
desire being to accommodate business
beyond San Francisco and ITpper Puget
sound points. Should this request be
granted, the change would necessitate
the appointment of an inspector at
Kettle Falls, or some place in the
vicinity, or the making of a sub-port of
In Favor of Lotteries.
Lo'uisville, Jan. 24. Judge Jackson,
of he circuit court, to-day decided the
lottery cases before him in favor of the
lotteries. One Manslis was indicted
for selling Frankfort and Henry Acad
emy lottery tickets. Judge Jackson
held that the Kentucky act of May 23
last, repealing lottety licenses, is void,
he knowing judically that there are other
lotteries in the class designated, and
adding that the legislature may select a
class and legislate in regard to it, but
cannot discriminate between those who
compose ,it. The case will be appealed.
Weather Moderating In Europe.
Brussels, Jan. 26. A thaw has set in
here and floods have resulted. The low

a depth of five feet. Inundation is re
ported from various places, all attended
with immense damage to property. No
lives were lost but people are forced to
flee from their homes.

TALKED OF IN THE EAST.
Extract From an Eastern Paper on
Washington, Jan. 24. The boom for
Governor Pennoyer for president is
spreading over the Eastern states, and
has already occasioned gossip in Wash
ington, which is just now the political j
center of the country. The following is
from the Washington Post of this morn
"Governor Pennoyer, of Oregon, is a
candidate for president, and the Pacific
democrats are booming him on the
ground that in case Senator Stanford
should be the candidate of the repub
licans it might be policy for the dem
ocrats to have a Pacific coast candidate.
Pennoyer is a democrat who has always
carried the republican state of Oregon
for governor, and last year when Her
mann, the republican candidate for
congress, carried the state by 10,000
majority, Pennoyer's popularity carried
him through by over 5000. The claim
in certain quarters that Hill's chances
have suffered by his election to the sen
ate has caused anti-Cleveland democrats
to look for another candidate. There is
also a large body of, men, who irtsist
upon a Western man, and a leading Or
egon democrat now in Washington says
that Pennover's name is attracting atten
tion on account of his popularity on the
coast, and further that he is a man upon
whom all factions can unite, because he
is not well enough known to have en
emies in the ii.ast. it will be remem
bered that Oregon cut a considerable
figure in the presidential election.
THE MYSTERY SOLVES.
Why the Mayor of a Minnesota
Litchfield, Minn., Jan. 24. Henry
L. Bawham, mayor of Litchfield, and
president of the state bank of Stevens,
killed himself some weeks ago, and the
next day notice was posted on the bank
doors that the institution would be closed
until there could be a meeting of the
creditors. There were several meetings
of depositors, but they could get neither
money or satisfactory answers to their
questions. The crisis came yesterday
when the discovery was made that there
is only about $10,000 in the bank, which
is not sumcient to pay the depositors
more than a small per cent. Judge A,
H. Young, of Minneopelis, has been ap
pointed receiver and will take charge
The liabilities are $180,000. The mys
tery of suicide is solved, but whether
Bawham lost the money by gambling in
stocks and grain, or by making invest
ments in real estate is not known.
GENERAL FOREIGN NEWS.
Great Rrltain Will Attend to the Dispute
.London, dan. z-i. rne Chronicle says
high authority declares the government
has exercised no pressure in Canada re
garding the pending negotiations. While
it would rejoice to see Canada and
America again commercial friends, it
does not desire to depart from the policy
of allowing the colonies a free hand

to imply any intention on the part of
Canada to make reciprocal commercial
agreement the basis of settlement of
questions involved in the Behring sea
matter, which must be decided on their
Trouble In the Lake View Land Oilice.
There has been trouble in the Lake
lew land office m Oregon, and some of
the citizens there are trying to have Re
ceiver ' Snyder removed. A petition,
signed by J. N. Merrill and others, rep
resenting pre-emption claimants as a-
gainst swamp land claimants, have asked
for the removal of Snyder and the ap
pointment of W. F. Byrd, in his place.
1 he .whole matter has been referred to
the interior department by the Oregon
delegation and a special agent bas been
sent to Lakeview to investigate the cir
cumstances. Some of the settlers there
claim under the swamp land grants, and
others claim under pre-emption and
homestead grants. The rights of the
claimants and the actions of the receiver
will be investigated by the special agent,
who will report to the department. It is
believed by these who know Suyder's
action that lie is acting on what he be
leives to be the best authority as between

Philadelphia, Jan. 26. There is a

The damage done property by the storm

The Few Tails Massacre.
Washington, Jan. 24. A telegram
was received by the war department
from General Miles, giving an account
of the recent killing of the Indian, Few
-Tails, by citizens. He characterized the
incident as a useless outrage and said
steps had been taken for the prosecution
of the assassins. The telegram showed
that the president had sent Miles an in
quiry whether or not the outrage had
been committed on the government res
ervation, and whether the assailants
are members of any state organization.
The object is to determine the question
of jurisdiction. ' .
