CLOSE IN EVENING
AH of Nebraska, most or lowa,
Dakota. "Wyoming and Colorado for sev
eral hours yesterday were In the grip
of the won't snowstorm and blizzard of
the season. The storm started some
where up in Wyoming at an early hour
Saturday morning and worked Us way
southeast, reaching Omaha shortly after
9 o'clock, rrom that hour until late last
night It held Omaha In a pretty firm
grip, nearly causing a cessation of busi
ness. All yesterday the stores of the city
were, almost deserted and the people
who make' up the, usual Saturday crowds
remained at home. Instead of remaining
open until o'clock, as is the Saturday
night rule, the big stores closed at ;
and an hour later the streets were de
serted except as some lone pedestrian
hurried along seeking a place of shelter.
While the leather was not as cold aa
it ha frequently been during bad storms,
there was a strong wind, making it seem
as If the mercury were down several de
grees below what it really waa.
Street Cars Stalled.
The street railway company maintained
a sort of service during the entire day,
but cars were either run In bunches or
far apart, It being impossible to maintain
anything like a schedule. Sweepers were
run over all the lines at intervals, but
there were not enough of them to keep
tha several lines clear, and the result
was that when one lino was cleared and
Hie cars moving it would be blocked
V long before sweepers could again get
round to clear the tracK. .
With the snow falling constantly from
morning until night, and a thirty-mile
wind driving It along, it waa piled in
huge drifts along the streets. In door
ways. In yards and on lawns, though Its
actual depth, providing it had laid as It
fell, was but about eight incheo at 9
o'clock last night.

During the day the storm interfered
considerably with railroad traffic and aU

thirty minutes to a couple or more hours

were delayed ttie most. Snow plows were
kept at work during the entire day, but
