' PASSES AWAY
Its Center is Now Uyer Noya Scotia, and
New England Gets a Respite.
Numerous Cities are Still Buried Under
Several Feet of Snow New York
Cemeteries are Inaccessible, and
the Dead Lie Unburied.
Washington, Feb. 14. A weather
bulletin today say a that from the At
lantic coast the storm has passed on to
Nova Scotia with rapid velocity and al
most unprecedented development. Ow
ing to the extent and extreme destruc
tivenesa. this storm will always be re
membered as the greatest storm in the
history of the Atlantic coast states and
the most remarkable for the perfect
combination of the conditions necessary
to produce Bach results.
The storm swept past Washington
about midnight, and this morning the
eun shone bright on a city buried under
approximately .three feet of snow.
Washington is still cut off from railroad
communication with the outside world.
Many persons became bewildered and
exhausted during the blizzard yester
day evening and night, and fell into
snowdrifts. Two score or more persons
were picked up partly or wholly uncon
scious, and there are many cases of
severe frost bites.
The Dead Lie Unburied.
New Yobk, Feb. 14. The city finds
itself unable to bnry its unclaimed dead.
This Is in a great measure due to the
ice-bound condition of East river, which
has made it impossible for several days
for the steamers of the charities depart
ment to make their accustomed trips to
the city cemetery on Hart Island. No
burials have taken place Bines last
Tuesday, when the coffin-laden steamer
made its last trip to the potters' field.
On Friday about forty bodies were
placed on board the steamer Thomas S.
Brennan, and Captain McCarthy, made
an attempt to land them at Halt Island.
He succeeded in getting as far aB White
stone, where his further progress was
stopped by pack ice, and he found it
necessary to return to the- pier at the
foot of East Twenty-sixth street, where
the bodies were unloaded and returned
to the morgue.
Another attempt was made to reach
the island on the following day, but
again the steamer was forced to retnrn,
and land their dismal freight.
There were in the morgue on Sunday
fifty-eight bodies awaiting burial, and
this number was . raised on Monday to
eighty-two, of , which' forty-six were
adults and the remainder children. Not
only have burials been absolutely sus
pended by the city authorities, but
private undertakers generally have been
compelled to decline to conduct funerals.

"I have fust, recovered from the sec

Mr. Jas. A. Jones, publisher of the
Leader,- Mexia, Texas. "In the latter
case I need Chamberlain's Cough Rem

days against ten daya for the former at

would have been equally as bad as the
first but for the use of this emedy as 1
bad to go to bed in about six hours after
being 'struck' with it, while in the first
case I was able to attend to business

Catarrh of the stomach has long been

sometimes with sour and watery risings,
a formation of gases, , causing pressure
on the heart and lungs and difficult
breathing; headaches, fickle appetite,
nervousness and a general played out

Manila, Feb. 14. Particulars of the

have been received here. j
On the morning of Friday, February
10th, Miller eent an ultimatum to the
commander of the rebels on shore, noti
fying him that it ' waa his intention to
take Iloilo by force if necessary. Non-
combatants and foreigners were warned
to leave the town within twenty-four
hours. The rebels were also - informed
that they must attempt no further bel
ligerent operations. The gunboat Pe
trel was then moved to a position close
in shore and near the rebel fortN, while
the cruiser Boston took up her position
at the other end of town. '
Friday, passed quietly. During the
day many, refugees left town. At 3
o'clock on the . morning of Saturday,
February 11, the Petrel signaled to the
Boston that the rebels were working in 1
their trenches. In return the Petrel
was ordered to .fire warning shots upon
the town from her three-pounders. This
was done, and the rebels replied with a
harmless fusillade. The Boeton and
Petrel then, bombarded the rebtl
trenches, completely clearing them of
Within a very short time after the
bombardment began flames broke out
simultaneously in various parts of the
town, whereupon the matinee, acting aa
infantry and artillery, were landed from

stripes over the fort, took possession of
the place in the name of the United
