New York, Feb. 13. The fearful
storm which prevailed all day yesterday
and last night has increased in violence,
and, together with the snow, which has
drifted in many places, has almoBt para

None of the Atlantic liners from Great
Britain and the continent, that regularly
arrive here at the end of the week, have
yet been cited.
There is no doubt that a large fleet of
steamers have arrived in the vicinity of
Sandy Hook, and are waiting outside
the blizzard to pass. The Marine Ob

Mary Goodwin, of Brooklyn, aged 31
years was frozen to death Sunday. .
An unidentified woman was frozen to
death in a hallway on Forty-seventh
street, in this city on Sunday. She was
thinly clad and had evidently sought
shelter from the storm.
Fears are entertained that Mailcarriers
Palmer and Hawkins, of the New York
office, have been drowned.' The two
men left Hart's island for City island on
Thursday morning to deliver the mails.
They were in a Bmall boat and -the high
wind that was blowing and the floating
ice made it impossible for them to con
trol their cratt. Six men, in a larger
boat, who attempted, to rescue them
were nnable to do so, and it is feared
that the light boat was carried off into

, Washington, Feb. 13. The phenom
enal weather of the past week culmi
nated in a enow storm today, which
broke all records. The temperature rec
ord was smashed last- night, when the
thermometer went to 15 below zero, and
a new snow record was also established.
Business in all departments was almost
at a standstill, less than half the force
reporting. ' At 12 o'clock the treasury
department dismissed its clerks and
other employes for the day, and other
dismissals, it is said, will follow. '
The paralysis to all kinds of business

Opium Smoker Cremated.
San Fkancisco, Feb. 12. The cele
bration of the Chinese new year in this
city resulted in a tragedy today. While
fireworks were being exploded from a
window of the employment agency of
Jue Bun, at 724 Commercial street, a lot
of firecrackers inside the house were ac
cidentally lighted, and the room was
soon inflames. A nnmber of Chinese
were smoking opium in the place at the
time. Five who were rescued told of
others remaining in a stupor, and a vig
orous search by the police resulted in
the discovery of the drugged Mongolians,
Qaong Duck was burned to death, and
his charred remains were ' taken to the

covery ie doubtful. Very little damage
was done to the building.

Chicago, Feb. 13. Sixteen skaters,
living in the suburbs of Rogers Park and
Lake Forest, were carried oat into Lake
Michigan on ice floes today. Ten of
them were rescued, and during, the en

fruitless efforts to secure 'some trace of
the missing six. '
Lt Grippe Successfully Treated.
, "I have just recovered from the sec
ond attack of La Grippe this year," says
Mr. Jas. A. Jones, publisher of the
Leader, Mexia, Texas. "In the latter
case I used Chamberlain's Congh Kenn
edy, and I think with considerable suc
cess, only being in bed a little over two
days against ten days for the former at
tack. The second attack I am satisfied
would have been equally as bad as the
first bnt for the use of this emedy as 1
had to go to bed in abont six hoars after
being 'struck' with it, while in the first
case I was able to attend to business
about two days before getting 'down.' "

- More Slides Feared.
Silver Plume, Colo., Feb. 12. Many'
people living on the mountain sides are
moving today to avoid possible death in
snow slides, such as that which swept
down Cheyenne canyon yesterday, kill
ing at least ten persons. Much heavier
masses cf snow than that which came
down yesterday still cling to the mount
am sides, and liable to be dislodged at
any moment. The bodies of the men who
were carried away in the avalanche yes
terday are still being searched for. So far
eight bodies have been recovered. Three
men who were caught.in the slide were
taken out with only slight bruises. It is
thought thirteen persons were in the
slide. Possiblya dozen more were caught
by the slide. .
How to Prevent Pneumonia.
You are perhaps ' aware that . pneu
monia always results from a cold or from
an attack of La Grippe. Daring the
epidemic of La Grippe a few yeaVs ago
when so many cases resulted in pneu
monia, it was observed that the attack
was never followed by that disease when
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy was used.
It counteracts any tendency of a cold or
La Grippe to result in that dangerous
disease. It is the best remedy in the
world for bad colds and La Grippe.
Every bottle warranted. For sale - by

Accident at Bonner's Ferry.
Bonner's Ferry, Idaho, Feb. 12.
The following report was received from
Engineer C. M. Miller last evening:
' "Friday afternoon, abont 4 o'clock
two men were killed in the rock-cut on
the Twohy Bros, work, at station 1236.
They bad two boles to fire, and the fore
man had sent all the men out of the'cut
except one to help him. Two shots
went off in succession. When the men
returned to the cut they found the two
men about dead. The foreman's name
is James Cook, and the other's Snider.
Both are single men. . Nothing is known
about the relatives of either.
For the past week there have been two
men advertising and introducing a new
kind of soap among oar citizens. It is
known as Blue Mountain toilet soap.
The above named eoap is made from the
product of a mineral soap mine located
in Eaetern Oregon, and is without a
doubt the best five cent soap on the mar
ket. It is put hp by the Colombia Star
Manufacturing Company of Portland.
Their Sunshine-scouring soap is without
an equal for cleaning or scouring of what
ever nature, and is harmless to the skin,
as it contains no acids. For sale . by all

Washington, Feb. 13. Othj cables the
adjutant-general as follows:
"Manla, Feb. 13. Every thing is quiet
in the city this morning. , Business is
resuming its former activity.
Mr. S. A. Fackler, editor of ' the
Micanopy (Fla.), Hustler, with his wife
and children, suffered terribly from La
Grippe. One Minute Cough Cure was
the only remedy that helped them. It
acted quickly. Thousands of others use
this remedy as a specific for La Grippe,

The Animals Are Worthless and No
Effort Whatever Has Been Made
to Save Them.
Lonc Creek, Or,, Feb. 9. From per
sons who are posted on the condition of
range horses in this county, and from
reports received from the various ad
joining counties it is ascertained that
stock horses are sharing the Bame fate
of staryation to a great extent all over
Eastern Oregon. Cattle and sheep
buyers, who have recently visited this
city, and who have also been in the
counties of Crook, Gilliam, Morrow,
Baker, Union, Wallowa, Umatilla, Har
ney and Malhenr pay that in every sec"
tion they have visited, , with .very few
exceptions, the owners of both horses
and cattle have dispaired of saving more
than a small per cent of their stock.
In Malheur the conditions are more
favorable for the horses than in as;
other county named, and even there it
is estimated that from 20 to 50 per cent
will perish. In Harney, Baker, Crook,
Morrow, - Umatilla and Gilliam they
could not be saved, even if their value
would warrant feeding them hay, as all
repot ts go to prove that there is barely
sufficient hay for sheep and cattle.' Both
range and hay is scarce in the greater
postion of Morrow and Grant, while in
Harney and that portion of Umatilla
which joins Grant, thousands of bead of
stock cattle have been driven in to
winter on the surplus hay.
No 'definite estimate can possibly be
made as to the nnmber of horses that
will perish in each county, as nine out
often stockmen, when approached-on
the subject, invariably answer that they
have no idea bow many they have, and
generally add that it makes little dif
ference, as they are valueless.
Different parties who have traversed a
portion of the ranges of the counties
named, in reporting on the same for two'
months past, have Btated that the hills
were becoming strewn with horse car
casses,' and as the conditions are daily
growing worse, it may be safely esti
mated that 200,000 horses will die in
Eastern Oregon before . the middle of
March. Conservative stockmen, when
asked why horses are allowed to perish
in. such a reckless manner, baye stated
that since tho decline of the noble
animal the -herds of sheep and cattle
have increased to such an extent that
they alone tap the country for feed
whereas when the horse- commanded a
good figure the herdsof cattle and sheep
were kept proportionately small. The
falling off of the value of the horse has
resulted in the increase in their numbers
and there la not room for them , much
longer in Eastern Oregon.

building, forty patients and twelve at
tendants. The structure was - three
stories and an attic high, and had two
entrances.- There was one stairway
from the second and third floors, which
led into the main hall, thus giving but
one egress for those on the upper floors.
Patients and attendants fled with ter
ror, great confusion resulting especially
among those on the upper floors. Many
heart-rending scenes were . enacted as
the inmates clad only in their night
clothes and barefooted, rushed down
the narrow flight of stairs, and finally
oat into the snow.1 'I he temperature
was 23 below zero, and further loss of
life from freezing was prevented alone
by prompt work of the attendants from
the main building. . The attendants
escaped, as did the others, who were
saved, with none of their personal ef
fects, many losing all they possessed.
Portions of charred remains can be seen
in the debris at the bottom of the base

mains and debris will begin in the
