IN STORM'S GRIP
Indications That the Worst Blizzard
in Tw enty-Three Years Is
Seattle, Wah., Feb. 2. Rising
ttrr.i.eratures throughout the Pacific
northwest early todav indicated that
the storm, which in western Wash
ington was said to b? the worst bliz
zard in twenty-three years was abat-
ing. but apprehension was felt that
a quick change in lh? weather with
its probable accompanying avalanches
in the mountains and floods in the
valleys, would do great damage.
Snow is general throught most
of Oregon and Washington, lying a
foot cc-ep in the lowlands and being
drifted to a depth of more than twen
ty feet in the mountain passes
through which the transcontinental
railroad? are built. All the railroads
running east have felt the effect of
the tremendous snowfall, and traffic
is practically suspended.
Reports from Portland, Ore., are to
"he effect that rising temperature
early today turned the sleet to rain
and gave indication that the worst of
th- ".silver thaw" was over. Electric
light wires and street car service in
many parts of the city were de
moralized by falling trees, borne down
by their exhaustive weight of ice.
Some of the residence districts were
in darkness last night. Telegraph
service to the southward was spasmo
dic. Portland public schools were closed
today on account of the storm and the
uncertainty of transportation fa
cilities. Some of the schools were
compelled to close yesterday on ac
count of shortage of fuel.

MAY ARRIVE ON THURSDAY
Berlin, Feb. 2. (By Wireless to
Sayville.) Instrutcions have been
sent by the German government to
Ambassador Bernstorff at Washing
ton of such a nature as to give "rea
sonable hope for a positive under

semi-official nature, is said bv the
Overseas News agency to have been
made "in connection with alarming
English reports about the nature of
ine text oi tne statement is given
by the news agency as follows:
"It is true that on Saturday, Jan
uary a telegraphic report from the
German ambassador t.t Washington
arrived at Berlin showing that up to
that time it had been impossible to
adjust the Lusitania case in a man
ner satisfactory to both sides by
frinedly verbal exchanges of views.
On Tuesday instructions weret rans-
mitted by telegraph to the German
ambassador, which give reasonable
hope for a positive understanding."
May Come Thursday.
Washington, Feb. 2. At the Ger

ceived no instructions from Berlin and
that if such instructions had been

tions come by cable they will be trans
mitted through the American embassy
at Berlin, which at the instructions
of the state department has placed its
facilities for communication between
Count von Bernstorff and his foreign
office at the disposed of the German
government so that the Lusitania ex
change would not have to pass
through the British censorship.
None of the embassy officials would

the instructions referred to as "giving
reasonable hope for a positive under
standing." Count Bernstorff's !ust communica
tion to the foreign office transmitted
a lull statement ol what tne Ameri
can government asks.

PLEASANT DANCE AT
THE H. W. A. HALL
Last evening the M. F. C. club, an
organization of the young married
people of the city, enjoyed a very
pleasant dance at the Modern Wood
man hall, at which some thirty-five
couples of the jolly club members pro
ceeded to spend a few hours most
pleasantly in tripping of the light
fantastic, which proved most delight
ful and the music furnished by the
Plattsmouth orchestra under the di
rection of Tom Svoboda. assisted
greatly in making the dance a most
pleasant one. The dance was in the
nature of a leap year affair and the
ladies, in inviting the gentlemen, cer
tainly showed them a royal good time,
and the boys are hoping that there
will be a number of these leap year
entertainments before the season is
over. During the progress of the
evening delicious fruit punch was
served in the dining room of the hall.

Will Not Even Consider Eight-Hour

Lnicago, i-eb. 'J. I he executive

Employees have not completed their
referendum vote on wage demands,
Grand Chief Warren Stone of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers
has announced. However, the vote
probably will approve the demands.
The demands affect 800,000 men on
280,000 miles of railway in this coun
try and Canada.
Union officials have been quoted as
saying that they would not accept ar
Rates Don't Justify Higher Wages.
The western association announced
that the demands mean an increase
in pay of approximately $100,000,000
a year, or 25 per cent. This, it was
announced, "is of such magnitude that
it cannot even be considered with the
present level of railway passenger
and freight rates."
"'The railroads,' the association
states, "desire to retain in their serv
ices a high class of men and to pay
them wages commensurate with their
skill and responsibility.
"They believe that the enginemen
and trainmen are now receiving lib
eral wages for the service performed.
"No new conditions have arisen
since the last increases in pay were
effective to justify rates of pay higher
than the men are now receiving."
The statement declares that train
men's wages between If 03 and 1914
were raised between 30 and 42 per
cent and that western trainmen re
ceived a further increase in 1915.
London Press Amazed at Capture of
Appam and Mystery of German
London, Feb. 2. Amazed London
newspapers today expressed admira
tion for the Germans' daring exploit
in capturing the British liner Appam.
"That such a feat should be possible
after eighteen months of war almost
baffles belief," said the Daily Chron
icle. "The news will cause astonishment
to millions," said the Daily Grphic.
"Where did this new German cruis
er come from and where did she get
her armament?" asked the Chronice.
"Chasing her down will be easy. Pos
sibly she was equipped in a Turkish
or Bulgarian port."
All papers agree that Washington
has been put in an mbarrassing posi
tion by the arrival of the Appam.

LATTER'S STATUS IN DOUBT
Norfolk, Va., Feb. 2. The German
sea raider Moewe, which captured the
British liner Appam and sank seven
other British merchantment, is a
member of the German naval auxiliary
forces. Lieutenant Berge, commander
of the prize crew in charge of the Ap
pam, today produced a commission in
the naval auxiliary reserve.
Berg is waiting for the United
States government to say what should
be done with the Appam. Aboard, 452
British prisoners, in charge of forty-
two Germans, await permission to

Says Appam Is German War Vessel.
Liutenant Berge hinted today that
the German contention will be that
the Appam is a German war vessel
and entitled to internament rather
than a prize of war, subject to release
in neutral waters.
Prince Hatzfeldt, counsellor of the
German embassy, is here to take
charge of the German interests.
With the German naval ensign still
flying, the Appam is anchored only a
quarter of a mile from Fort Monroe.

He reported that the Germans were
said to have placed bombs about the

445 British subjects aboard. No
Americans were on board.
The wireless of the ship was
utilized in avoiding British ships in
the race for Hampton roads.

One week from today Thursday,
February 10th is the date set for
the democratic banquet, at which the

other an inspiration for the coming

Printed letters of invitation were sent

looked they need no printed invitation
to come in and partake of the delights
of the "dollar dinner," which will be
