Worst Winter In Yoars Cannes Many
Wrecks and Delays.
Chicago, Dec. 20, Ibillroads In the
Wett, northwest, nnd In the central
tle are experiencing tho greateat
dlfllculty of year In operating their
train. Conditions which cxlt now have
not been equaltod during any winter
for the paat decade,
Tbo trouble of tho oncrntlnir men
teem provalunt everywhere. In Chicago
liataonger train from nil directions ar
rive ttom five hour to one-half day
aie, ami in a lew mmnee train be
rnme o Inte they were abandoned be
torn reaching tho terminal.
To make matter worae, the dlffiriilt
operating condition whleh have arlaen
imvo been accompanied by n long torie
nf wreek on the various railroad.
which have retultod in arnutlng appre
hension everywhere. For moat of these
wreck the Hidden cold snap I being
held reanonalble by tho railroad men, na
tho marked drop lu temperature eauae
the rail to become brittle.
Within the territory limit of Chicago
the operation of train I made exceed
ingly difficult by reason of tbe cold and
the moke. Early In. the morning su
burban trains are compelled to crawl
into the station, the engine crew un
able to ice the (ignal at times on ac
count of the low-banging imoke.
Throughout the weat freight traffic I
more or lea paralyzed. In an effort to
get passenger trains over tbe road the
operating men have been compelled to
sidetrack freight everywhere for a long
period. Tbe result I tbat all the aid
Ing are full of delayed freight and the
terminal yard are congetted to an
equal degree.
In ir.sny lection thn audden extreme
cold has been followed by a heavy fall
of anow, which ha drifted and thui
blocked traffic in man.r-jilate for hour.
In Chicago tbe operating men- on the
variou roid have been working day
and night in the hope of clearing up the
line and getting traffic moving nor
mally. Passenger train cannot get out of
Chicago on time, beeauae of tbe non
arrival of Pullman equipment, wblch
I in ue o delayed train.
Itailroad men itr one of the irfMlml
eaute of delay ! the difficulty of team
ing engine during evere cold. Another
eaute It tbe dlfllculty of operating coal
chute, trains often being delayed from
20 minute to one-half hour in securing
coal or water.

today yielded to tbo demands of both
Secretary Uallinger and bis critics for
a public investigation of the wholo sub
ject matter underlying the to called
llallingcr-Pinebot controversy.
Mr. Itelllngcr thl afternoon served
upon the preddent virtually aa ulti

gress senator and representatives
who feel that, entirely apart from the
merits of the controversy itself, a fes
tering sore of thl character must
poison tbe whole system of the party
la power, and that it is high time tu
resort to the lance.

House and impress their view upon Mr.
Taft. Conferences of a confidential
character, in which members of the
