Three passenger trains, containing scores of passengers, were held be- hind it all night, the passengers sleeping in the coaches. Most of them got in about noon yesterday, tired, sleepy and hungry. Under trie present conditions it will take more than a week to get trains moving anywhere near the schedule time. On the Chicago, -Milwaukee ,1 St. Paul railway, the same conditions exist. On account of freight trains being stalled between Bur- lington not a single passenger train got through from Union Grove. Every effort is being made on the railways to get coal trains through, but the conditions arc not promis- ing at present and fuel shortage may, become more acute than ever.
