There are men at work on the Central Pacific road trying to clear the blockade at Emigrant Gap in the Sierras, but as the snow plows can network through the freezing ice, the prospect of the road being opened soon is poor. The snow is seven feet deep and fathomless in the cuts. On the Northern Pacific, Colonel Crocker's special train has beea snowed in for three days. The SouthernPac.8c has been badly injured by washouts in the Teachepi Mountains and beyond Los Angeles the floods have done great damage. It has been raining in South- ern California. for several days past, while it is snowing in, the north. SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. snow blockade on the Central Pacific railroad in the vicinity of Truekee and Emigrant Gap has become very serious. Since Tuesday last no eastern overland trains have been able to reach a point further west than Colfax. All of the eastbound trains are at Coliax and Shady Eun, while those coming west are at Emigrant Gap, Truckee and Reno. At Truckee the depth of the snow va- ries from eight to twenty feet. Snow plows pushed by ter and twelve locomo- tives are reported stuck fast in the drifts. Snow is still faUinsr and places on the road which had been cleared by the plowshare rapidly filling up again. The passengers of the blockaded trains are comfortably quartcied at hotels by the company. Some cases of influenza are reported among the passengers and the company has providf dthe sufferers with medical attention. The railroad officials declare that the blockade is the heaviest and longest they have experienced for over ten years. No mails have reached this city from the east since last Tues- day. Telegraphic wires are entirely buried by the snow in some places. Proceedings In the Senate and House of Representatives. WASHINGTON.

That Sen- ator, he said, had complained or the character of some citizens of the South who had come north us witnesses concerning political out- rages in that section: and hart also .had somo- thiug to say about the silent voter. There was one citiyen of Florida, said Mr Chandler, who will not come north to testify concerning politi- cal outrages. That man was John Burr, a col- ored citizen of Madison County Florida. Woo, In October last, having been to Jacksonville as a wit-ess concerning political outrages, was -killed on his return to Madison County bv the Democrats of that county, on account of the te--'imony which he hafl pven. >Ir. said that it had been his purpose to address the Sanate to day on the sjenerai sub- ject discussed by the Senators from Alabama.

The Question of Location Will bo ered After the Amount to be Appropri- ated HIM Determined. WASHINGTON, Jan. Commit- tee on World's Fair appointed by the Speaker yesterday will get to work as soon as possible. The interests of the four cities competing for the location of the fair are supposed to be thoroughly represented on the committee. The representatives of each city were asked to name two members of the committee, and the Speaker named the chairman. The West did not want the appointment of Mr. Candler, who is supposed to be in favor of an eastern location for the fair, but there is no serious objection to the appointment now that it has been made. A proposition will be laid before the committee at its first meeting that a scheme for the organization of the fair be agreed upon and the time for holding the fair be fixed befoie the question of locating the site is taken up. The fear is expressed that if the site for the fair is chosen before the appro- priation or loan has been agreed upon the Mends of the disappointed cities will put obstacles in the way of the pas- sage of the bill establishing the fair. It is altogether likely, therefore, that the question of location will be taken up last It is a common belief, growing every day, that the fair will not be held in 1893, and a great many people are in- clined to favor 1895 as a desirable date. of th" Town IriSi.

Chicago Irishmen are considerably agitated over tbe news from Kew York that president Fitzger- ald attempted to a aecret com- mittee to audit the accounts of Rev. Charter O'Reilley, national treasurer <4 the League. They regard it as an traordinary "The simple fact said a prominent Irishman, Fitzgerald or the men who control him are running the League as if it were their private property. I know that when he came to Chicago last May to consult with Alexander Sullivan and some others he was asked to call a con- vention of the Leajrue, but he only re- turned an evasive answer. Before the request could be pushed in a way to force him to take some sort of a stanu, Dr. Crania's body was found in the Evanstom avenue sewer. "The excitement that followed that event drove all thoughts of League mat- ters out of the heads of Irishmen, and the question of holding a convention was forgotten. If the Nebraska crowd wanted fair dealings 'if it did not con- template either tbe absolute ruin of a great organization or perpetual control of its affairs, Fitzgerald would have called a convention three years ago. "The constitution under which he was elected says him term shall only extend over a period of one year, and that be- fore the expiration of that time he shall issue a call for a convention so that his successor could be selected. He issued no such call." ANOTHER RACE CONFLICT. Shotf Knlve< mod With Telling KITect Fight Urt ween Whites and ISlnckn-Oiie Killed and Number Badly Woumletl, WEST Ga., Jan. 21.

The cause has not been ihe onow storm but an accumulation of freight at As much as carloads of corn from. Nebraska have been lying at thar place waiting to be transshipped to Boston and other eastern, points.
