SNOW GETS DEEPER
Sheepmen In Wyoming, Colorado
and Now Mexico Suffer.
WORST STORM IN TWENTY YEARS
Whole Country Dotwoon the Rocky

Under Whlto Pall.
Denver, Oct. 23. Hnow, wind and
cold havu oxttndoil over nearly the on-
tiro country between the Itocky moun
tains and tho Missouri river today,
causing heavy lots of livestock and
fruit. Tulcgraph wires have been pros
trated and railroad schedules disarrang
ed. The atorin Is almost unprecedent
ed for sevurlty at this teaeouof the year
and takts rank, according to the weath
er bureau, with the snowfall on April
22 and 23, 1H85.
Up to 0 o'clock this evening about 20
inches of snow had fallen In Denver
and Indications were that the mow
would continuo all night.
Locally but little da.s'ge was done,
Hheo.-meu in Wyoming, Colorado and
New Mexico, It Is believed, will snffar
heavy losees, as they were unprepared
for such weather. There nro hundreds
of t ni of sugar beets an.! thousands ol
barrels of apples still In tho open In
tho northern part of Colorado and
should the cold continue, the damage
will be very great to tho ranchers.
Telegraphic service throughout the
West Is badly hampered and trains in
Tlm billiard which has boin raging
in Pueblo and vicinity since early Hat
unlay afternoon Is slightly abatod this
morning. Itallroad and stroet car traf
fie Is badly crippled. The Illo Grande
west ol Pueblo has suff died moat from
the snow, which is unusually heavy
along Its line, ranging from 10 Inches
at Florence to 30 inches at Iluena Vis
ta. Trains from tho Kast aro generally
from a few minutes to several hours
late. Cattle and other stock on ranges
suffered from tho wet snow and cold.
Colorado Springs reports that the bill
iard, which has been in progress for
tlm past 48 hours, broko this mwrnlng.
Trains aro somuwhat delayed. Tho
temperature In Colorado Hprlnga this
morning waa about 16 above zero.
WISCONSIN REMITS TAXES.
Increase In Railroad Aues.modt Sup
plies All Funds Necessary.
Madiion, Wis., Oet. 23. All the
state taxes, with the exception of the
tchonl tax, which was reduced to hall
of ono mill, wore remitted today by the
atnto board ol assesion. There is al
ready so much money In tho stato treas
ury that none of the olllcials know
what to do with It.
With tho prospict of moro than 2,
600,000 coming In from this year's
taxes, bt ite Treasurer Kmpf threw up
his hands In despair and said thoro waa
no way to spend It. Accordingly Gov
ernor Divldson, Hrcretary of Slate
Homer and Mr. Kempf mot today and
decided to remit the taxes.
Ths railroads aro footing tho bills.
That, in tho main, is tho reason for the
action today, tho drat time such a
sweeping movo has hoen made In the
history of thu statu. It Is one of the
results of Senator I-aKollette's long
right when ho was In thu governor's
chair. Under thu new ad valorem law
thu rnada pay about $2,(100,000 annu
ally, or ono-thlrd moro than thuy did
under thu old licenro tee system.
Tho amount of taxes remitted Is $1,
818,236. Instead of raising this
amount from thn taxptyeis, tho admin
istration will deduct It frui tho gene
ral fund of tho statu to meot c.rain
fixed expenditures. Tho school tax,
amounting to 1013,080, goes back to
tho taxpayers iu tho support cf the
Rollef Fund for Winter.
Washington, Oct. 23. Tho executive
comnitttuo of tho Ited Cross has finally
approved thu estimates of thu Ban
Francisco rollef commlttoo for tho con
tinuance of tho relief work In that city
ui) to July 1 next. Originally placed
at 10,000,000, theso estimates have
been reduced by a little moro than
700 000. Moat of thu money is already
In sight, as tho Bn Francisco commit
too has n balance of $2,382,000, with
unfilled subscriptions subjict to call of
$000,000. Tho Hud Cross propoi.holds
a little over 12,000,000.

8ALT LAKE WIND bWEPT.
Buildings Razed and Packing Plant
Destroyed by Fire.
Halt Lake City, Oct. 22. For 24
hours this city and vicinity was swept
by a wind storm of unparalleled sever
ity. In addition to three serious acci
dents to persons, property has bcn
devastated over a wide area, a fire
fanned by the wind has obliterated the
now plant of thu Utah Packing com
pany, and n monetary loss of appproxl
matuly 2C0,000 Is vntalled.
During tlm full period ol tho storm

at all. For much of thu time the street

The burning of tho Utah packing
plant, north of tho city, Is the most
serious single loss. Tho building had
Just been compleetd at a cost of f 100,
000, and was to have been put Into nse
in a few days. Tho project was inaug
urated by Western cattlemen and was
in opposition to tho large packing
bouses In the Kast. The causo of the
flro lias not been ascertained. Only a
small fraction of the loss is covered by
Kulned buildings, fallen chimneys,
broken windows, loomned signs and
toppled trees throughout this and ad
joining towns are the most common
souvenirs of tho storm and apgregito an
Immense loss. The wind attained a
maximum velocity fo 62 miles an hour.
For hours at maintained an averago
speed of 38 miles an hour. The local
weather bureau has been handicapped,
but expresses tho opinion that thu
storm Is local and with little effect
north of Ogden or south of Provo.
LOSS WAS HEAVY.
Cuban Hurricane Crosses the Island,
Leaving Death In Trail.
Havana, Oct. 22. More complete re
ports have been received by Governor
Magooon and show that the recent bur
i lean, which swept across Cuba, has
caused greater damage than waa at first
supposod. Scares of lives are now
known to have been lost as tno result oi
The worst reports come from the Ua
tabano, on tho south coast of Cuba, the
point where tho cyclone first struck the
Island. Forty fishing schooners are
now known to have been lost. Many
corpses have been picked up floating In
the bay, and it Is bslleved the dead at
this point alone will reach nearly 100.
The majority of the victims aro Spanish
Oshormen. Wreckago from tho vessels
which were destroyed litter the shores
for miles. It is believed that several
amallfchooners were swept out to sea
and lost, their crews perishing.
The town Itself suffered severely.
Nine bodies have been removed so far
from the rnlns. On every band are to
ba seen evidences of tho storm's fury.
Houses wore blown down, trees were
uprooted, and devastation has been
wrought generally. A conservative es
timate of tho damago in that city is
1000,000. The greatest damage waa
caused In tho lower portion of tho city.
Tho upper section away from the shore
escaped almost miraculously. The
wharves were badly damaged, in many
cases completely wrecked.
More Delay for Hermann.
Washington, Oct. 22. Representa
tive Dinger Hermann will not be placed
on trial in this clt- on tho indictment
charging destruction of 36 ofllcial let
torpresa copybooks until sometime alter
the Christmas holidays. No definite
arrangement for tho trial has beon
made, but tho court's docket Is now so
filled that It will be lmpoealble to bear
the case within tho next throe months.
Since the case waa last postponed at the
time Mr. Heney waa called to San
Franclaco nothing has beon heard from
Hermann and his whoreabouts aro un
known to tho court. No anxiety is felt
on this Bcore howevor.
Quake Wrecks Trestle.
Portland, Me., Oct. 22. Two earth
shocks lait night destroyed about 100
feet of n temporary highway structure
which crosses the upper harlwr. The
first shock was felt at 0 o'clock and tho
second at 7:07. Itoth shocks were
light, but were distinctly felt by pedes
trlans. Accompanying tho rumbling
waa tho sound mado by tho cracking of
tho timbers of the temporary structure.
It Is feared that great damage has been
done to tho foundation of tho now high
way brldgo nearby, for which 260,000
was apptoprlated recently.
