Railroad Men to the Great taow Blockade Nearly SneeeMful. SAJT FRAXCISCO, Jan. pros- pects are that the great snow blockade on the Central Pacific railroad will be cleared to-day. Clear weather is re- at all stations from Rocklin to fruckee, with one or two exceptions. Lt Cisco the snow is fifteen feet on the level and in the drifts the snow is three or four times as deep. Fifteen engines are at work with the rotary plow Champion's Spur. The snow was thrown fifteen feet on either side of the track, and fifty snow shovelers who were en- gaged in dicing a trench were com- pletely buried by snow from the plow. They were not badly injured. The way is now clear to Tunnel 13. Heavy slides and drifts are reported be- ;ween Truckeo and Boca. A rotary plow .s clearing a road to Blue Canon and to- day it is expected to clear the track to she two imprisoned passenger trains be- tween Blue Canon and Alta. Xone of ;he snowsheds have caved in, although thp weight of the snow in some very heavy. The average depth of the mow along the sheds is twenty feet. Truckee is cut off from all communica- tion with the outside world, but this is true of all mining and other towns in the Sierras. At Dutch Flat, on tho western slope of the Sierras, there are seven feet of snow on the feet more than ever before recorded. The wagon roads are all Many houses have been crushed by the snow, but no lives have been lost. Snowshoes are the only means of getting about In addition to the imprisoned trains near Blue Canon, two eastbound passenger trains are snowed in near Shady Run. John J. Jennings, a newspaperman who came out to meet Nelly Ely in San Francisco and escort her to JCew York, was caught in tho blockade several days and than made the journey from Blue Cauon to Alta on snowshoes and from there rode on an engine to Sacramento. At Sacramento Jennings took a special train to meet Miss Bly at Lathrop. On the Oregon road the passenger trains bound to and from Portland are still stuck in the deep snows on the Siskyou range. The passengers on some of the trains are sail to be short of food. Ore Jan. first through train for the past week arrived here last evening over the Union Pacific line from the east. It brought 250 pas- sengers. A second train arrived an hour later. A third is due at three o'clock to- day and a fourth still later. These two trains will probably bring 600 passen- gers and sacks of mail. JQnless an- other storm follows the road can now be kept open. All Northern Pacific trains east and west are reported on time.

Decks and Staterooms Flooded by Mountainous Waves. Completely the Mercy the Among on a Canard Liner. QUEEXSTOWX, Jan. Cunard line steamship Oallia, from New York for this port, arrived here Tuesday in a much battered condition. Her captain reports that the weather during the toy- Age was the worst he ever A succession of heavy seas flooded the ship's decks and forced their way into the staterooms, causing a panic among' the sleeping passengers. Five of the Gallia's lifeboats were smashed and the davits were twisted and snapped off. The captain that during the pas- sage he saw a large steamer, which he thought belonged to the Johnson line, lying at the mercy of the seas with only one mast standing. LOSDOX, Jan. British tramp steamer Dunbolme, from Liverpool for New York with a general cargo, took refuge yesterday at Moville, Ireland, badly damaged by the storm which she experienced after clearing the Mersey. All the lifeboats were washed away, the bulwarks smashed, the bridge broken and deck fixtures carried away. A num- ber of the men were Jiurt. The vessel must be repaired before proceeding. The Cunard steamship, Catalonia, which sailed from Boston for Liverpool January 11, rived at Queenstown yes- terday in a condition betokening her ex- perience with storms of extraordinary severity. She reports having been struck by a hurricane, accompanied by fierce snow falls, lasting twenty hours and ending Saturday morning. During the storm four of her boats were swept away, her ventilators, bulwarks and deck houses were battered and stove, seven of her furnace fires were extin- guished by the seas which breached over her, and her intermediate cabin was so thoroughly flooded as to be incapable of occupancy. Several seamen and two steerage passengers were injured by be- ing knocked down, or struck by flying objects, and by the bursting of a steam pipe three men were killed and a fourth badly scalded. NJEW YORK, Jan. steamer City of Chester, which arrived from Liv- erpool yesterday, reports a strange ex- perience which occurred last Thursday. The steering gear got out of order and the wind and waves swung the steamer around as if she were on a pivot. A panic was narrowly averted. Jn a few the break in the steering gear was repaired and the proceeded. COWARDLY ASSAULT Ittod Men a Strlk- Fears for the Safety of Snowbound The- atrical Troupe. DENVER, Col., Jan. Grave fears are entertained regarding the probable fate of the Howard Atbenseum Company of variety artists, who are in the snow blockade on the Central Pacific. Noth- ing definite can be learned. Advices from Utah points say the road may not be opened ii three weeks. A train with the theater troupe on board is believed toj. be buried under demolished snow shods between Reno and Truckee. It is a question whether the entombed passengers can be rescued before they perish of buuger and cold. The mercury is 30 to 40 below zero out there. Hatters' Strike Ended. DASBCKY. Conn., Jan. The locked out bat finishers held an excited meeting Tuesday and by a two-thirds vote passed a resolution that the action calling out C. H. Merrill's finishers bo rescinded and that they return to work to-day. A committee was appointed to Investigate the matter of allowing boys not apprenticed to work in the finishing department, which practice in C. H. Merrill's factory lod to the present trouble, and to see that other factories do not follow this method. of an Encttnh Syndicate. PORTLAND. Me., Jan. 22. An Ea- glisb syndicate has bonded the Portland Smelting Works and the Cartin ship- yard property. Lorenzo Taylor, one of thf principal owners, has gone to En- gland to complete the of the prop- erty. The syndicate has also bonded a tnines of zinc, lead and stl- BRADFORD, Pa., Jan. special from Punxsutawney there is much excitement there over an outrage per- petrated by the PinlCerton force Monday nifrht. A Hungarian miadr who was passing a locomotive received a shower of oinders which nearly blinded him. He made an effort to this act when he was attacked by the Pinkerton men and handled very roughly. He fought in self-defense, but the men beat the poor wretch until his head and face were covered with blood. Several others interfered, hut were overpowered by the police and taken to the jail. The Pink- erton men resort to the lowest and most contemptible tricks to force the men to strike hack at them, butthe miners keep their-tempers under good Control. Many of the miners are pleading with the labor leaden for a chance to revenge these insults, but the strike committee maintain their former position, and ad- vise peaceable methods. Notwithstand- ing the attitude of the leaders of the strike, the fact is apparent that an up- rising ts Imminent. The men are drink- ing heavily and in so doing show that they am beginning to ignore the advice of their leaders. Five more evictions took place at Adrian yesterday. The sheriff, accom- panied by twenty-seven armed guards, removed the household effects of five families out of their holdings and turned tbe wretched people out into the cold. The homeless ones were taken in hand by the Strike committee and given tem- porary shelter. Sheriff Sutler has 100 writs of ejectment to serve at Walston to-day, and as that place is the stamp- ing ground of many belligerent miners a skirmish will probably take place. THE LAW-MAKERS.
