Tho Ulinois Central, Chicago, Mil- waukee i St Paul, and lines traversing i tho high prairioa of that section of tho state are at a standstill.

The blockade haa brought business to a standstill, aud it will be several days at least before the embargo caa be raised. In tho meantime tho small prairie towns of north west- ern Iowa are likely to exhaust thoir supplies of fuel, causing serious embarrassment, if not actual suffering, to many.
