HORSE RACING ON A SNOWY TRACK
Oyster Beds Roofed Over. In Ice An
Engineer Frozen With his liana
on the Thy ttle.
Special to T he Cheonicle.
Chicago, Jan. 24. With the New
York harbor frozen up, ten ocean steam
ers floundering in ice-floes at Hamburg,
Florida suffering from cold and the en
tire west enameled with snowbanks, it
appears that the present frost-bite is
nipping a pretty large section of the civ
ilized world. Thirty-two degrees below
zero is the bracing temperature regis
tered up near the Canadian border and
towns in North Carolina are learning to
appreciate overcoats and other luxuries
in an atmosphere which keeps the ther
mometer at zero.
In the east an engineer was frozen
with his hand on the throttle; the rud
ders on the Philadelphia . ferry-boats
froze stiff and lay dormant in true Phil
adelphia fashion ; oysters in the Chesa
peake bay are roofed over with thick ice
and can't be got at, and up at Kingston
a woman carried a pail of water a short
distance and both were frozen.' A tug
in New York audaciously tried to split
an ice-floe in two, and ran at it only to
get wedged in and carried down the har
bor, shrieking for help. These and the
serious delays of many snow bound
trains and a general, disturbance of
mails, and traffic mark the features of a
very vigorous' cold snap.
In Chicago and towns of the same or
lower latitude the spectacular effect of
this winter panorama can best be gained
by imagining the conditions prevailing
less than six months ago. . This is the
same city, wherein but recently men
went about the streets, panting, in their
shirt-sleeves, waving palm-leaf fans,
guzzling iced drinks and ecalded with
the humid heat. This preposterous pic
ture is a good one to keep in mind in
the present blizzardy days, when the
only easy way to get out to the crib is to
At a fire last night on Clark street tbe
water froze almost as fast as it left the
house and the firemen who held the noz
zles were soon frozen to the pavement.
The front of the building was soon cov
ered with a complete coating of ice. The
telephone wires in front of the building
also fell down from the weight of ice
which gathered upon them, and they
presented a picturesque sight as they lay
in festoons on the pavement.
Combining the ridiculous ' with the
sublime features of the storm, the
snow was scraped off the track
and banked up on either side
along the Hawthorn race-course yester
day, leaving a hard, sandy crust on
which the horses galloped with their
half frozen jockeys, in order to decide
who should take the money deposited
with the eight book-makers, whose
stands stood inside the betting-ring.
A few years ago such a scene, if well de
picted -upon the stage, would have
brought roars of applause because of its
merits as a burlesque on the old-time
sport of horse-racing.' Between the
track and the grand stand there was a
barrier of snow eight inches deep, and
the big field and , stable-roofs beyond
were all one grand expanse of white.
Here and there along deep paths through
the open field men wrapped in huge
overcoats could be seen hurrying along
to and from the stables. But the rest
of humanity kept under shelter except
whsn the blow of the bugle summoned
starter Chinn and his assistant to the
post, and it would have been hard 'work
to convince a Kentuckian of ten yearis
ago that this scene represented the good
old sport of speeding horses.

Contractor Day Says Work may be Com
pleted in Eighteen' Mouths.
From the Dally Oregonian, 23d.
Messrs. J. G. and I. N. Day, of San
Francisco, to whom was awarded the
contract for completing the cascades
canal and locks, have been in the city
for several days. By the terms of their
contract they are required to begin work
on the job within ' ten days after their
bonds are approved.' All the papers
connected with the 'matter are now in
the department at Washington; and the
contractors are hourly expecting the re
ceipt of a dispatch informing them that
all formalities have been completed and
everything is in readiness for commenc
ing operations.- They have been up to
the cascades looking over the situation,
and it is probable that within twenty or
thirty days they will have a force of men
getting out rock ' for the work.- They
have furnished bonds in the sum of
$800,000 for the satisfactory completion
of the job, with Messrs. Behring Joost
and I. F. Kennedy, of San Francisco, as
sureties, and their bonds has been ac
cepted and will doubtless be approved.
Mr. J. G. Day was in Washington a
few -weeks since, and found everyone
connected in any way with the
cascade locks completion, anxious to
have the work done as soon as possible
and willing to do all possible to help the
matter along. The civil sundry bill now
before congress contains an appropria
tion for this work of over a million dol
lars, which, with the balance of the ap
propriation now in hand, will amount
to $1,419,000, for which the contract was
let. It is expected that this appropria
tion will be passed, in which case Mr.
Day hopes to have' the canal and locks
completed in about a year and a half.
; He says there is a magnificent plant
on the ground and every facility required
for carrying on the work which will be
turned over to him. He thinks the im
pression "which some seem to have form
ed that the engineer corps have wasted
money on the work is not well founded.
The delay has been caused by the fact
that the appropriations . were made in
small sums, which would not allow of
the work being prosecuted to advantage'
as regards economy. The manner in
which the work has been done, he says,
reflects great credit on the engineers. It
is well and substantially done and has
been directed in an intelligent manner.
Mr. Day says the opinion he heard
expressed of the Oregon congressional
delegation in Washington was that they
are hustlers, who have managed to
secure more than their share of the
funds for harbor and river improve
ments. They have got dollars where the
Californians have got cents.
' Messrs. Day have" had a number of
large contracts in' California, and are
now building the postoffice in San Jose.
They put up the first fire-proof building
on the coast, the California supreme
court building,' "and several similar
Joys of a Frontier Editor.
, Madre d'Oro. Our fighting editor is
a 'dandy. This week he made a trip to
Fairview, when a man of nearly twice
his weight jumped him. In less than
five minutes the jumper was regretting
his hasty action ; in ten he was a badly
whipped man, and in twelve he declared
himself out on a foul. Care should be
taken by the fighting public not to make
a mistake when they're spoiling for a
fight and get hold of the associate editor.
He's too easily licked to have any fun
with. "Take" a boy of your size."
Senator Wolcott, of Colorado, does not
like the ' Chicago-Columbo postage
stamps, and has introduced a joint res
olution directing the postmaster-general
to discontinue the sale of the so-called
Columbian postage stamps, except
where specifically called for. He asked
that the resolution be immediately acted
on and said he "knew nothing more
ridiculous than those shin -plasters cov
ering half of an,envelope." Tiie resolu
tion went ovef.
-The case of M, D. Howell, of Stockton,
indicted for counterfeiting, was called
for a second trial in the United States
district court yesterday, but, owing to
the absence of one of tbe attorneys and
the illness of Mrs. Howell, it was con
tinued. . Maddox and Smith, two other
Stockton counterfeiters, were arraigned
and pleaded not guilty.

this city have received from the Aus
trian government, a copy of a Hunga-

nan paper, euueu nere oy a political
exile from Austria, containing an attack
on the Austrian government, with the
request that the paper be suppressed.
This, of course, the police have no power
to do, nor can they exclude the paper
from yie mails for Austria, which, under
the international postal treaty, should
allow it to circulate in that country.
As all copies of it are seized and burned
on arrival in Austria,- international
complications may arise.
