T ' J VOL. XI . THE DALLES, OREGON. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1899. NO 266 TERRIBLE HAVOC BY BLIZZARDS Resorts of Intense Cold Continue to Come From NnmcroDS States. ALL TRAFFC IS PARALYZED No Ocean Steamships, are Arriving at or Departing From New York At Washington all Kinds of Bus iness is at a Standstill, and Clerks in Government Departments are Being Sent Home. 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 lyzed trafEo. Traffic on all the railroads have been delayed five hoars by the storm. The steamer Fuerst Bismarck, which was to have sailed today for Mediterra nean points, will not sail until tomor row on account of the etorm. 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 ' server laconically reports "nothiug bnt a blizzard." 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 , the sound and perhaps crushed and overturned. On Saturday, when the the thermom eter was 3 below zero, measurements of the Brooklyn bridge were taken of the trasses and other parts to find qut what the contraction had been. - In compar . ing these figures with ' those taken in July, when the thermometer . was 90 above, it was found that the difference was fourteen and a half feet.. , 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 is the worst since the blizzard of March, 1888. Colony' for Goldendale. Goldendale, Wash., Feb. 12. Julius Schubacb, of Chicago; Professor J. C Zimmerman, of Milwaukee; H. Hiebert, of Minnesota, and a Mr. Jossy have been making an examination of Klickitat val ley this week with a view of locating a colony of 212 people.

They were directed to Klick itat valley with a letter to J.G.Maddock, of Goldendale, by a well-kncwn German of Pnget sound who visited Klickitat about a year ago and 'made a careful ex amination of the wheat lands. The com mittee like Klickitat , valley best of all places visited, and eh all recommend to the society that Goldendale and vicinity be made the location of the colony. W.

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 morgue. Tu Mow, Jim Shu and Chan Wo were all badly, burned, and their re covery ie doubtful. Very little damage was done to the building. Adrift on Ice. 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 tire evening searching parties made 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.'

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.

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 up-to-date grocers.'

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, and its exhausting after effects. Never fails. Snipes-Kinersly Drug Co. ; HERDS OF STOCK ARE PERISHING Two HniiM Tionsani Hones Stems In Eastern Orejon.' STOCKMEN UNCONCERNED 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.

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 ment. The work of removing the re mains and debris will begin in the morning. The four walls of. stone will stand, black and 'grim, and will make the work of removal dangerous, as a total collapse is liable to occur without a moment's warning. . - Red Hot From the G an Was the ball that bit G.
