REKI.IV, Feb. Prussian minister of finance, Dr. Migeul; issued a decree yesterday, which goes into effect immediately, pro- hibiting fho importation of every kind of American fresh fruit. The decree has been to all the Her- man ports and frontier stations, ex- cepting Bavaria, Saxony and Wnrt- nmburg. The United States em- bassy was nos previously warned and the United States ambassador, Andrew P. White, sent a formal let- ter to the foreign office today, in quiring upon what author- ity this inimical step was taken. The United States con- snl at Hamburg, Dr. Hugh Pitcaim, telegraphs that barrels of American apples have been forbid- den to be unloaded, and that two trains full of American fruit have also been forbidden w> cross the sec- tion line at Amerieh, which, aside from Hamburg, is the principal place of entry for American frnit. On receipt of this news Mr. White sent a second and stronger remon- strance to the foreign office, calling attention to the evident violation of the treaty. At the foreign office it was learned that the Prussian gov- erament prohibits the entry of American fruit on sanitary grounds, claiming that bugs and vermin were bred in the trees and the frnit.

She was with dif- ficulty persuaded to retire to her room and about 1 o'clock in the morning, after a violent straggle with her parents who tried to hold her, plunged through the window of her home and fell into a snow bank in the front yard. She then ran, terribly bruised, through the streets and after a half hour's search was found in a snow bank almost nude by a policeman. She was taken home, and it was then found that during her absence her father had hanged himself by a rope attached to the boiler of a stove. He was cut down and removed to the hospi- tal in an unconscious condition. It is fevred both father and daughter will die.

Mr. Hale, of Maine, being satisfied the remarks of the senator from South Dakota proposed to make upon the resolution would infringe upon a subject under discussion in executive session, said he would move that the senate, under rule 35, go into executive session. Mr. Petti- grew remarked that he could aa well offer his remarks in executive ses- sion as in open session, and "if the friends of the Hawaiian treaty are so tender about the matter he was willing to go into executive session."

The loss to the smaller fishing craft of Gloucester and vicinity is par- ticularly heavy. A feature of the storm was the large number of fires in the city and surrounding towns while it was at its height. The I'phams corner Uuiversalist church, an old laud mark in the Dorchester district, and St. Thomas Episcopal church at Taunton, were burned. Serious fires also occurred in Lowell, Pea body, Kockland, Newton and other places. During the blockade of the railroads many trains were derailed and a large number were either stuck fast or lost owing to the collapse of the wires. The weather in line today, and by night it is expected most of the transportation lines will be in regn- ar operation. NEW Conn., Feb, necticut has -practically recovered rom tho storm. With the excep- ion of late trains, especially the hrongh trains from Boston, and inpeded trolley car traffic, the state 'elt the effects of the storm but slightly. Telephone and telegraph wires stood up admirably. YOKK, Wash- ington correspondent to the Herald telegraphs: Encouraged by the excellent effect of the visit of the battleship Maine to Havana the administration has determined to send another man-of- war upon a friendly visit to the smaller Cuban ports The vessel selected i-- the cruiser Montgomery which is now taking on lioard a sup- ply of cool at Key West. In ad- dition to this the armored cruiser Brooklyn, vnow at the Brooklyn navy yard, will leave in a few days for a cruise in the West Indies. She will not touch Cuba Her itin- erary requires her to first visit Kt. Thomas, thence go to Santa Crux, Curacoa, LaUuayra find Aspinwall. Upon arrival at Aspinwnll she will probably be ordered to return to the I'nited States. Ports in Cuba will form only a feature in the itinerary of the Montgomery, as it is proposed to have her call at several other points in the West Indies. The authorities believe that the beneficial results of the Maine's visit will be increased if they should dis- play tho Amerii an flag at other points of the island. Santiago de Cuba is the only point definitely se- lected for the Montgomery to touch, The United States is represented there by Consul P. F. Hyatt. San- tiago le Cuba is on the southern coast of the island. Before proceed- ing to that port it is expected that the department will direct Com- mander Converse to touch at Car- denes, Matonaas and Baraco. The other port, on the south coast of Cuba which the Montgomery may touch is Cienfeugos. Upon her re- trip to th" United States it is Sergeant I'nimolcd the C'aiitainc.v.

Since 10 a. m. it two points. The thermome- ters in the streets show a considera- ble lower record, many of them registering two degrees above The East and North rivers were full of ice and the ferry boats were much delayed on this account. The surface and elevated railroads ran behind time and local traffic was considerably congested. The Third avenue cable road broke down. Su- burban traffic was also delayed. Trains from the north, northeast and west were all late in arriving. Boston is still shut off from com- munication with the outer world, except by occasional telephone mes- sage. The streets in this city are j resuming their normal appearance and it was said that all the snow would lie removed from the princi- pal thoroughfares before noon At the hospitals there are many cases of frozen feet, fingers and limbs, and the surgeons are kept busy fix- ing up the bones broken by falls on the slippery streets. The weather forecaster says that it will be warm- er tonight, but more snow. An ice gorge is forming in Long Is- land sound at Fort Schnyler threat- ening to interfere with navigation. The Hudson river at Singing is frojwn over and if the cold continues another twenty-four hours teams and pedestrians will be able to crcas safely from shore to shore. s CRUISE SOT No significance is to be attached to the cruise of the Brooklyn. In explanation of her cruise it is stated that it is the desire of the authorities to display the American flag in Venezeula and Colombian waters, henoe the Brooklyn's orders. The only other vessel which this gov- ernment now has in waters of the West Indies is the gunboat Will- mingtonat 8t, Vincent. There is considerable work yet to be done on the Brooklyn and it is not expected that she will get away under two or three days. Running of the gun shop at the Washington navy yard night and day last week due only to the desire of Secretary Long to complete the fixings for the guns of the Brooklyn. MBUELT A KfttKNI't.V VISIT.

In view of the peaceful aspect of the situation, as reported by General Lee and Cap tain Singsbee, administration offi- cials say that this is the best time for a United States warship to visit the smaller Cuban ports. The night work was completed on Saturday night last and there has been no further extra work done.
