PASSENGERS SATISFIED WITH TREATMENT

Five t'nlon Paclflo passenger trains that
had been mow bound In tbe west for two
t.r .n asys reached Omaha yesterday
Four arrived between 7 and S:3G in it,.
morning; the fifth came In at 2:45 In the
nernoon. ah me trains were fairly well
filed with passengers, who had undergone
thrilling experiences. The first four trains
that arrived were laid up at Cheyenne, the
track being blockaded from there to 8ldney.
None of these trains were entirely covired
with snow, but were hemmed In on all
sides, ao that progress was Impossible.
The last train to got in. Atlantic express
No. 4, bad been blockaded at Smced, Neb ,
and had by all the odds the worst time
of It. Still It came through with all its
passengers unharmed, as did the other
trains, home of No. cars were fringed
around the top edges with snow, showing
plainly where they had been.
One of the passengers on No. 4 waa K.
M. De Belle, editor of the Cheyenne Trib
une. He said their train reached Bmeed at
1:60 Saturday morning, and got out at
about 7 o'closk Sunday eveniug. During
the siege the passengers were cared for
a well as facilities would permit, though
they had to content themselves with one
meal a day. The company paid for thee
meals, as It did also for those for the pas
sengers on the other four trains at Chey
enne, which were tied up two days. Mr.
De Belle said it was with the utmost dlf.
Acuity that the huge steam plows made
their way through the great embankments
of snow. He confirmed a previous report
that ten englnoa were still In the blockade.
The lifting of the blockade which re
lieved the congestion o" east bound trains
enabled the west bound trains to proceed.
6lx west bound passengers had been tied
up between Cheyenne and Sidney for flfty
two hours. No serious suffering was re
ported, however. The most eventful of all
the reports came from off the Kansas-Pa-clflo
division, where a Union Pacific train
was said to have been entirely covered
with snow and, therefore, completely at
the mercy of. the blockade.
The Burlington trains out west are aald
to be still blocked by the snow, but tin
Omaha trains on the Burlington are arriv
ing on time, ciearly so, In every case.
Cripple Hallway Mall Service.
Testerday there were missing at the
office of the chief clerk of the railway
mall service forty-five clerks who should
have been on duty, and these forty-five
were somewhere between here and Chey
nne. Friday twenty men were sent west over
the Omaha and Ogden route and none came
In. Saturday twenty more went out with
Done arriving, and on Sunday only alxteen
were sent west, aa the government ran out
of mall car and Union Paclfio No. 8 left
at 4:20 In the afternoon without a mall
car, tbe mall destined for Union Pacific
points west of Omaha being held here
until cars arrived.
Testerday four mall trains arrived and
(our were expected to get In some time In
tbe afternoon. The eastbound trains came
from Cheyenne by way of LaSalle, polo.,
while the westbound tralna went by . the
way1 of the Julesburg. cutoff and the ma
jority of the clerks were In the pocket
between Julesburg and Cheyenne when the
trains left Cheyenne.
There are elgLty-one clerks on the
Omaha and Ogden route and with the
eleven men who arrived on tbe three trains
yesterday thirty-one are available for
service. Out of six crews which operate
kver the Omaha and Ogden route regularly
there are but parts of two In the city.
Effect Omaha OBIce.
The effect of the disarrangement of the
service on the Omaha and Ogden route la
severely felt at the Omaha ppstofflce, par
ticularly In the registry division. At this
time of the year all of the available clerks
In the local postofflce are put Into the reg
istry division because of the large number
of registered packages which are sent out
and received during the holidays.
Yeaterday registered and ordinary
mall from three trains was delivered at the
postofflce and the clerks In both branches
were given more work than It waa possible
to dispatch. In the limited quarters of the
registry department pouches were piled so
thick that It waa with difficulty that the
clerks secured room to work.
Aside from this extra work eaused by
the delay of tbe trains there was more than
tbe usual local business yesterday. The
alushy streets Saturday kept many people
at home who would generally have aent
their Christmas packages at that time, so
yesterday the local bualness was almost
equal to the usual combined business of
Saturday and Monday.

Symptoms of a Tory Common TroaMef
There Is no dlrease ao common In tbe
United States as catarrh becauae It appears
In so many forms and attacka ao many dif
It a a common mistake to suppose that
catarrh Is confined to the nose and throat.
Any Inflammation of the muooua membrane
wherever located, accompanied by abnormal
secretions. Is catarrh. Catarrh of stomach
or bladder, or intestines Is nearly aa com
mon as nasal catarrh and much more seri
ous although It Is true that stomach ca
tarrh and catarrh of other Internal organs
Is the result of neglected nasal catarrh.
A new remedy has recently appeared
which ao far as tested seems to be re
markably effective In promptly curing ca
tarrh, wherever located. The preparation Is
sold by druggists generally under name of
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and in addition to
being very palatable and convenient, pos
sesses extraordinary merit. In many cases
giving Immediate relief from the cough

throat and head, thoae symptoms with
which everyone Is familiar who has evsr
suffered from eolda In the head and throat.
Catarrh la simply a continuation of theaa
symptoms until tbe trouble becomes
chroolo and grows gradually worse from
year to year.
Stuart's Catarrh Tablsta are compoaed of
Blood root, red gum and similar antiseptics
and catarrh specifics, from which It will be
seen that no secret la mads of tbe Ingredi

nature of his depredations was pointed out
to him the prisoner, solemnly pointing bis
finger at the Judge, said:
'Not at all. If I should take an over
coat from aome poor man It would be dif
ferent, but when I steal from a chuich I
take from a body of persons, and the share
of each Is so small that no one feels his
loss. Do you see?"
"Yes, I see," replied Judge Berk.i.
There are other charges of petit larceny
against Hayes, but action on these will be
deferred. Aa the churches were not locked

handicapped In this country and wearied
of his existence here. He wrote to his

Mr. Young was offered this position by
the Milwaukee after he had accepted the

be filled doubtless by the first of tbe yesr.

the B. A M. from the reportorlal staff of
The Bee. He has made an excellent record

have reached an agreement amounting to
a practical consolidation, the directors of
each company being elected members ot

agement Is Identical, though the eompanles
nominally remain separate.
The step is the result of tbe crisis In
the German electrical Industry. It was
found that tbe manufacturing companies
had outrun the demand and various efforts
were msde to organise a combine after the
model of those In America. The Allgemine
took the lead In these efforts, but found
most of the other companies demanded too
high a rating In the proposed combina
tion. The first negotiations were opened with
the Schubert company of Nuremburg, which
surprised the country last summer by an
nouncing sensational losses through the
shrlnksge in tbe value ot Its securities and
The Allgemine attempted to secure con
trol of the Schubert through a group of
Berlin banks which back the Allgemine.
The banks contemplated a practical com
bination ot the two eompanles by extend
ing financial support to the Schubert, but
the negotiations came to nothing. The
Allgemine then entered into negotiations
with the Union, which were conducted so
secretly that the announcement today
took the market by surprise, and ita pub
lication caused a rise in electrlcals, Allge
mine gaining 6H and Union 2 1-3 points.
The Union owns the Thomson -Houston pat

an American, Mr. Magee.

dined on such of them as have reataxcranl cars.
J would rather dine on a Burlington Jlouie
dining car than on any railroad dining car that
I hnow of in the world. The only other rail
road service that compares with it in desira
bility, is ths Orient Express, in which I trav
eled between Paris and Constantinople." &
8. McClure, Publisher McClure's Magazine.
You pay for only what you order, and
what you order is good.
Burlington dining cars attached to Bur
lington flyers for Chicago and the
East, Denver and the West, Seattle
and the Northwest.
The service? Well, that's Burlington, too.
And you know "Burlington" is like
"Sterling" on silver.
