Salem and train service, especially on
tho Oregon Electric, has been inter

Today on tho Oregon Electric the
4:T) south bound, the 11:20 a. m. north
bound and the 7:fi5 p. m. north bound
were cancelled on account of the in
ability to keep the ice off of the
trolly wires. Last night's 0:44 south

and was pulled in by an electric freight
engine which was covered with ice.
The Western X'nion telegraph company

Hobert C. Paulus, maii iger of the Sa
lem Fruit I'nion, reports that so far no
damage has been done to the fruit in
this section and that horticiilturulists
north of Salem sny that tho damage to
fruit trees and berry bushes does not
extend south of Garden Home.
The snow today has put a stop to the
sleet and it is not expected that any
limbs will be broken from tho fruit
trees and there has been no damage
from freezing reported to date.
Salem and vicinity appears to be a
lucky spot aeoerding to the reports
from other points in the northern end
of tho valley and the present indica
tions are that no d.imago will result
from the inclement weather unless a
decided change for the worse is affect

five of its engineers to Portland today
to take charge of gangs which arc now

Portland Is Isolated
By Sleet and Snow and
One Death Is Reported
Portland, Or., Feb. 3. With com
munication and transportation prac
tically paralyzed throughout the north
west, Portland for a time today was
iiterly without means of connection
with the outside world.
Wireless apparatus on which the city
hod relied to talk to other points broke
nuder the weight of ice on it.
Overnight, tho silver thaw that
struck the city yesterday, turned to a
snow storm, but this ceased during the
forenoon. Snow crippled the railroads
so badly that they abandoned their
schedules, while tho eastern part of
the city suffered from absence of tele
phones and electric lights.
A ten inch snow blanket lay on the
ground hereabouts, while eastern Ore
gon reported nearly two feet of snow
before tho wires failed.
Tho storm, practically continuous
since January 1, is the worst iu the
history of tho northwest, and yet more
snow and cold is predicted by tho of
ficial forecaster.
Stronger easterly winds are ex
pected to add to tho cold and suffer
ing already inflicted.
One death in tho past 24 hours is,
however, tho sole casualty report up
to early afternoon. Herbert Wild
dropped dead from exhaustion, while
battling against the driving sleet,
