Strjte It absence granted for thftt purpose," Every item in this long contract, consisting of ..twenty-six articles, the" larger part of which looked to the benefit of. employes, was carefully gone over at Chicago by representatives of? the: Brotherhood- of Engineers,'4*4 the vfce-presldent of the company. The Santa Fe Strike, The strike of the Brotherhood of Engineers, involving the Atchison, Topeka & Santa -Fe system, has been the all absorbing topic of conversation in alfcircles during the day. It was given o.ut cold, yesterday, that no trains would be perpiitted fo move over the-Santa-Fe, except those carrying mail, and that on these no passengers or express would be hauled. .Manifestly the railway managers feared that "this fiat had gone forth, fef fhe safe �>f [tickets was discontinued, end espress matter refuged by the Wells, Fargo Express Com -pany. But, just as we -go to press, the gratifying news is received that the moveinejpt of mail, express, and passenger twins on the Santa Fe system will n 888, entered into a contract with the locomotive engin :^ iersand -- and .. southern Kansas systems, By *e contract large Jbenofits jppl advantage were .. �iv?n this class of - employes. 'The.ivery first provision of this written contract is in substance as follows: "That no engineer or fire.*] roan should be suspended or dis charged upon any charge whatever, withouS.firstlhjiving a fair and impartial hearing.  A board of inquiry is Mit^\is^^:f9m.9^ of division superintendents, division master me front the division frow which com -rights appeal-is in all .c�a#sjiveo in secret session, '.  '  '.  -tain result? The boycotting organizations wjll gain recruits from the engineers and firemen and there will be no longer a conservative labor organization in this country to resist radicalism- It is a question whether- the other railroad companies can afford to have the Chi-c#go, Burlington & Quincy succeed ii) its'contest. Certainly the country is in th'e presence of a great danger." The reporter asked if there was a likelihood of the companies combining, but' the officer replied that he could not say. If they liad the courage of their convictions they wou)d do so and speedily settle the difficulty. ing. The two roads .are controlled by the Santa Fe company,, and, are practically a part of the, Santa Fe'a overland system. As.a result .there is a cgmplete embargo upon til .lines of traffic in this portion of the stat* south of Los Angeles. The cities of San Diego, Riverside, and P�sadcna are cut off from communication by rail to the east. 'Chicago, March, 16.-Information obtainable here in regard to the strike of Brotherhood Engineers and firemen on: the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe system as yet is very meagre. Vice President Smith said this morning they were still in the dark as to the cause .of the men's action, and they would not decide on any line of action until they were thoroughly informed of the situation, both on their own account and connecting roads. Los -A.noei.es, .March 16..-All is quiet in the Atchison, Topeka & Santa J-'e yards to-.day and the road com'-. vpletel'y fisil up. The overland train left here on lime .last night, but only goes as far as San Bernardino. Two blockaded, one at Mojave :aud .-jtiiv other at Pasadena- An excursion train made up for the east last night still remains here'.  ./ Kansas Citv, March 16.-Reports from points on the line show a complete blockade, both freight and passenger; Number 5 was abandoned, but the overland No. 3 got off at it:-36, manned by Ben Warton, a non-Brotherhood man, as engineer, and his wife as fireman. not a? wheel moving. Kansas^ Citv,- March, -15.-The strike situation on the Santa Fe is unchanged   this .morning.   Not a wheel is turning except those of "a few switch engines.   No trains have been -moved in - any direction, ^and officials refuffe.,to receiyc: !O^BJNt^f--iariy kind.. The Union^dep'ot'pies'' ents a regular castle garden appearance, as hundreds of emigrants have been brought on whose destination is somewhere on the -line of the SuntaFe.   An official of the road said he would have trains moving to morrow,, but the outlook .at present is not flattering for the road. Mana gers of the strike absolutely deny giving any order for the strike. Engineers say they have no grievances, but say they will rest until the Bur-, lington road comes to terms with its employes, -        . refuses to  talk, Chicaco, March 15.-Chief Engineer Arthur.and Grand Master Sargent were in bed to-night at a^ early hour, when a reporter called'with the news of the great Atchison, Topeka &;Santa Fe strike. After much ham-' mering on the door Mi". Sargent was 'induced to come forth; but 'could give no information/ regarding the strike.  It was all hews to him. not handling "9" cabs, San Francisco, March 17.-Ther�i has been no trouble on the Southern Pacific. General Superintendent Fillmore, of the Southern Pacific, said to-day Chat the company was not handling any "Q" freight) and the same rule was being observed-00 the Central. , Arthur's advice. t Chicago, March 16.-When questioned regarding the strike on the Atchison system .'Chief Arthur saidt "It i.s beyond my power to give you any explanation of this action.  The men: have not notified .me, and I am completely in the  � information as to the reason for the rueri'; going out, or what their grievances are, while the 'Brotherhood claim the strike resulted from the company attempting to haul "Q" cars, in direct violation of their agreement hot to do so.   A Brotherhood engineer, in conversation said he did not only believe, but he positively knew that unless' .the trouble on the "Q" was speedily settled, that every- Brotherhood man running west of Chicago would, leave his en gihe inside Of ten days. .,        ; the atlantic * pacific stride.

"The conditions," said he, "during this Storm were peculiar. On Friday we cOuld see the formation of two 'tows,' or storms, one on the Northern lakes and one in Georgia, with the winds coming from the west- N'o: on$ could tell which of these two centers would reach this portion of the country first, put from the direction of the wind at the time no one could1 reasonably have supposed that the Southern storm,' which was the smaller,, would amount to the terrific disturbance into which it developed." "The cause of the difficulty was the* abundance of air pouring in from the sef,4 T|ie tfotm is' probably, still raging wffh great fury off the coast of New England. The ocean currents re driving in at a frightful rate, and the northern winds are coming with their quota of moisture. The storm seems to have gradually increased .as it went along the coast. After passing Philadelphia it began to move more slowly, and during the past twenty-tour hours it has remained almost stationary, This fact is perhaps the most abnormal feature of the storm." an end to the storm, New York, March 14.-A clear sky and a little moderation in the weather were satisfactory features of the situation this morning. Travel was resumed on the .elevated roads but the surface lines are still impassable. The meagre reports received show that the people living in New Jersey towns who started for New York on Monday had a dreadful experience, Many trains were snowed in a few miles from the city and the 4passengers were compelled to sleep on the trains or wade through the snow to.-look for shelter in the villages. A number of persons are reported to have perished fr.cm the cold and exhaustion. : At Elizabethport a dozen employes of the Singer Sewing-Machine Works started for their homes and several of them were badly frozen. One man named Ellis was picked up out of the snow stiff and breathless. He was carried into the railway 6tatio�, where he soon died. One party walked over three miles through the deep snow and in the foq� JUbf lsr>ailfi..�'aii!,,, ,, able to move trains. The New York Central situation is unimproved. .The Chicago limited on the Pennsylvania road, which was stalled for the day on the Jersey meadows,, reached Newark last night. A relief car of supplies bad been sent out in the morning, with three locomotives pulling and three, pushing, to insure the passengers against starvation. Much of the live stock on the stalled trains i.s perishing with the cold.   ; The milk famine is becoming alarming. One hotel yesterday paid .50 cents a quart for the last fifty gallons a dealer had. The meat supply is getting short and prices are advancing. Fifteen dollars a ton is being paid for coal. There is plenty of it in the yards at New York and Brooklyn, but the difficulty is to deliver it. Two- thousand business men from Mbtt Haven have been snowed in n.ear Pelhamvijle, a suburb of New york, since Monday morning. .The afternoon papers estimate the business loss, the contingent loss and the ac.tu.al pecuniary,; outlay which tjie" storm will occasion in New York at not less than seven millions, and the loss to the states involved twenty millions. ,"The"'streets are still blocked. Twenty funerals en route to Cavalry cemetry are stuck in snow drifts on Borden avenue. The corpses had to be'taken into houses .near by over night. Some of the mourners, drivers and horses had to be dug out nearly frozen to death. Of the twenty-nine staunch pilot boats'that made up the harbor fleet of New York two are safe in port, having outridden the storm, nine we're wrecked on Monday, and eight-teen which were out in the open sea remain utterly unheard of. The experience of the men on the boats that were wrecked was something terrible, and it seems almost miraculous -that there should have been no loss of life.  < s At the Western Union Office it is said that 700 telegraph poles are down along the Pennsylvania road between thiseUy -and Washington and it is not expected that business will be running, a? usual before a week at teast..
