TRAFFIC IS BLOCKED
HeavySnow Stoitas on the
- South Side of the
THREE PASSENGER TRAINS TIED UP
The Northbound la at Donimslr, One
Southbound at Edgewood and
Another at Hornkrook.
Ashland, Or., Dec. 22. The storms
which prevailed during the past week,
blocked traffic on Ithe Southern Pacific
on the south side of the Siskiyous to
Dunsmuir almost completely yesterday
and today, and three overlaad passen
ger trains, one northbound and two
southbound, are blockaded in that sec
tion. The severity of the storm is great
est on the south side of the Siskiyous,
and through the upper Sacramento
canyon in the Black Butte country, and
in the vicinity of Sisson and Edgwood.
Snow fell at the rate of a foot an hour,
and for a time there was a blinding,
raging storm. There is reported aloDg
some sections of the road, a depth of
eight feet of snow. On the Siskiyous
there is only about four feet. At Ash
land there is none. The railroad bet
ween Ashland and Hornbrook, on the
further side of the Siskiyou pass, is clear.
All the telegraph wires are down from
heavy weight of the snow in the vicinity
of Sisson and Edgwood, for some dis
tance, and this has retarded the move
ment of the forces working to clear the
track. Snow slides, carrying rock and'
earth, having added to the difficulty.
A big rotary plow was put to work yes
terday near Edgewood, but broke down
this morning, and had to be sent back
to Dunsmuir for repairs. It reached
Edgwood again this evening at 8 o'clock,
and started to work. The railroad
people expect that the road will be
opened for the passage cf trains before
No new snow snow has fallen today,
and that gives further encouragement.
The overland train, which left San
Francisco Thursday evening, is lying at
Dunsmuir now. The southbound pas
senger, which left Portland Thursday
evening and left Ashland yesterday at
noon, is at Edgewood, blocked. The
southbound passenger train that left
Portland last evening arrived here nearly
on time this morning, and was here un
til about 3 o'clock this afternoon, when
it started south and crossed over the
Siskiyous without difficulty. It is now
lying at Hornbrook. Reports from
Sisson and Dunsmuir country indicate
that the storm has been as 'severe as
any ever experienced there, and the
snowfall greater than eyer before known.
Travel by snow-Bhoes is the only way
to travel. Further south in the vicinity
of Delta, the storm has.been mostly rain,
Some rock and earth slides were re
ported last 'night from that region, but
it is thought there will be no serious
trouble there. On this side of ithe Sis
kiyou mountains there has been no
snowfall to speak of, and there is none
lying on the lower grounds. .The rail
road has made no effort to run freight
trains during the past dayfor two.
Tlie Income Tax L.
Washington, Dec. 22. The first case
to test the constitutionality of the in
come tax law has been brought in the
supreme court of the District of Colum
bia. The petitioner is John G. Moore,
of the firm of Moore & Schley, of New
" V York. The complainant is a prominent
director of the Manhattan Railway
Company, Western Union Telegraph

of internal revenue from collecting the
tax. It sets out that the complainant is
a shareholder in various corporations
which pay dividends to said complain
ant; that independent of and in addition
to said dividends, the complainant Has
an income, derived from the gains
and profits of his business and embraced
within sections 27 and 28 of the new
tariff law, largely in excess of the sum
of $4,000 per annum, and upon which
income the commissioner of internal
revenue has ' threatened to, and unless
restrained by this honorable court, will
proceed to assess the sum of 2 per cent,
on the amount in excess of v $4,000 per
annum. The bill, then reviews the
sections of the new tariff lap bearing on
the income tax, in which it is alleged
are many defects, and charges that the
act is invalid and its provisions inopera

The Government's Gold.
New Yokk, Dec. 22. Subtreasury of
ficials say an effort is being made in
New York to juggle the government's
gold. Exporters are very anxious to
get hold of full weight coins and gold
bars and bricks with the government's
stamp of fineness on them. Uncle Sam
has $46,000,000 worth of these, but in
order to cut down exports, some time
ago the department made it a rule to re
deem treasury notes only in gold coin.
The light-weight coins complained ot
are all within the legal limit, one-half
of 1 per cent, but the shippers have felt
the loss and have sorted the coins, keep
ing the light-weight ones at home. The
banks objected to taking them, and one
foreign house took a lot to the sub-
treasury and asked that they be re
deemed in paper. This the treasury
officials declined to do, saying the re
deeming of paper promises to pay did
not carry with it the reverse duty of re
deeming gold in paper. The only thing
left to do was to deposit the gold in the
bank, whence it would work its way
back to the subtreasury. The' assay
office has received a novel proposition
from an exporting house. It wanted to
deposit American gold coin and have it
melted into stamped bars. The propo
sition was declined, though if the coin
was light or mutilated it could be re

Mexican Cattle Barred Oat of Texas.
Austin, Tex., Dec. 25. In view of the
fact that the live stock sanitary commis
sion of this state has been reliably in
formed that a malignant disease known
as spenetic or southern fever, exists
among the cattle in a large part of the
republic of Mexico, and as there are no
sanitary regulations in that country to
prevent the spread of the disease, Gov
