out I the housekeepers supplies began to run out I and the necessity for resuming tho routine of I I life pressed with added forco on most people So desperate was tha situation that many I men on the

peop holes In tho car windows found that 1 film froze over tho smooth surfaces faster than they could bo rubbed clean Whatever of tho general scone of Gotham in tho grasp of I blizzard was seen from tIme uplifted tracks must have boon viewed from tho car platforms It was all now to Now Yorkers Here wore men tunnelling through drifts higher than their heads to clean tbo sidewalks thor ware others shovelling tholr way to tho wagon ways to get out of their houses elsewhere wore letter carriers bawling to people In doors to come out over tenfoot snow heaps to got their lot tors Than there wore

Some had bits of waterproof around their legs some had bindings of cloth wrappings of canvas boot legs cavalry boots in full stockings overshoes und rubbers overall fabrications of straw and bindings of string to hold their trousers tight against their los As for their hats there Is no room to tell of tho various sorts that appeared Tho big bridge was the contre of Interest all day Toward 10 oclock when tho trustees hud been running one train at a time one way nt 1 time to bite out small mouthfuls of tho crowds that watted to cross the Ice in tha river became jammed tight in n natural causeway and the tolder spirits of the two cities attempted to walk across from shore to shore Hundreds succeeded but suddenly at about 1 oclock the great bridge of leo cracked in soy oral pieces I left three men on ono big cuke ns largo as Washington square two men each on cakes that scorned the size of door mats And no ono on tho main cake that filled nil but the edges of the river Six tugs started to the rescue of these men but five of tho boats Instantly became edged und lu the Ice Five thousand Ind helpless II persons watched tho sixth boat with breathless interest I had slow work before I The wharves on tho Brooklyn Mda became crowded with onlookers Thin tug crawled through a narrow aisle of water to the big cako where the group of threo men stood It pushed tho manyaero cako

In tireless wonder at the scone In the street He mat policemen who told him of numberless woman and boys they had rescued from tho drift or from freezing and ho was accosted by scores of persons whoso houses wero blocked up by snow drifts and who wished to know whether the storm was general or confined to their blocks ID great areas tho gaslights woro not lighted and tho electric light wires hung In tatters Peoulo began to be jocular They sent let tors to THE SUN ofllco telling of the massacre of old gentleman who had been an all lentloman foolhardy enough to say ho remembered just such u

in order to got bettor i lumlnntlon from tho electric lights But It was no time for jokes and they WOIO not well received Onco again the Stock Exchange acknowledged business a farce and nearly mary other rendezvous of men sighed for Its habitues who were held back by tho general paralysis of dully lit 1 It woro possible the town took tbo storm too seriously inniunuch as omplo > ors often reached tho business places to find tholr hands not thoro while In other places the employees came to find tho bosbes absent Thousands of stores and offices were thus only half equipped The barrooms both up

woio doing nil that was to be depended on oy the manses for transportation and us the deslro to cot down town was modified to moderation by the perfect understanding that business would not be worth talking about for a day or two the two car trains albeit not very close together were nearly sufficient for tho needs of the morning all of which goes to show that tho expedient of running light nnd frequent trains should have been adopted early enough to insure tho keeping open of the road MOUNTAINOUS SNOW DIIFTB Tho nspoot of the streets up town nnd downtown as well prepared the people for the

that lined the north sides of tho cross streets and tho west sides of tho avenues wore In many plnoes llvo nnd six feet high Areas werefilled up and their railIngs covered while stoops wore hidden under white mounds The efforts of the shovel brigade that was early put to work soon cut narrow paths along those sidewalks The drifts rose higher under the contributions of these workers who piled the many cublo yards thus removed upon the tops of the huge drifts at the curbs In many places this resulted In huge white heaps that to the crossbars of the reached lampposts On the other tides of the streets bare spots and little drifts alternated Sometimes for whole blocks and alwa s at oae or more points in a block the drifts extended into the roadways In the cross streets and a the narrow thoroughfares aorceiy one wholo block was passable and more wagons were soon stalled and left with thoso that had been out nil night Those who started gaily out with fresh horses and tho comfortable

that portion nt tIme usual speed tom tIme tracks wero slippery and snow was being blown upon them continuously The express traIns from IBSth treet to Cart Inndt slreet vIa Ninth avenue did not run

hardest of any of cm said Superintendent Newell of tho Broadway and Seventh uvonuo street car line when a SUN reporter asked him yesterday afternoon how Ida road had fared In tho storm And said tho superintendent were coming to life as soon us any of em but no ono can tell when thats going to be Of cottrso wo shant run any cars todaj and probably not tomorrow cither I have about 250 men out shovelling today 75 of whom are Italians and men who wanted a job The rest are some of our conductors mind drivers The superintendent had n good many more mon than 250 at work early In tho morning Each of the nowlyhlrod workers was to get 125 for his days work Pretty soon the police came around with stern notifications to tho occupants ot buildings to clean off their sidewalks immediately The laborers found their services at n premium and In a great many cases they loft tho street car tracks for the more lucrative task of cleaning the sidewalks Tho slush which formed on the tracks nt the bcelnnlngof the blizzard was frozen of course und was to be dug away with pickaxes It does not scorn as if cars could be running the length of Broadway linen three days though superintendent Newell says lie bus 1000 men promised him for today The workers yesterday only cleared thin trucks of the drifts between Thirtyeighth und fcortynintb streets The The worst drifts upon the Broadway track are nt Union and Mudlson squares and near Fiftieth street The Broadway road has twocars snowed in ono at Bowling Green and the other between Eighth and Ninth streets The Bev enth avenue cars are all In At G oclock yeaerdav morning Superin tendent Moore of the Sixth avenue surface railroad left the road stables at the corner of Fortyfourth street and Sixth avenue with a corps of three hundred workers armed with pickaxes and shovels The workers comprised nearly nil tha drivers and conductors of the road and Italians and other chance laborers The men were distributed trom Vesey to Fifty ninth street and they went te work shovelllnr snow with a wld Particular attention was paid to the Sixth avenue part of the road from Carmine street up Before the day was done the upper part nf the avenue was cleared of the drifts but the tracks were still clogged with ice so that car locomotion over thorn was impossible It will require four or five trips of the sweeper over the tracks after the Ice Is off before the cars can be run Superintendent Moore said that it there was no more blizzard he hoped to start cars this morning The Third Avenue Horse Car Company had sap men nt work yesterday clearing the tracks They were put to work early and many were kept at It during the night Snow oloughu and sweepers were useless I have been In this business said VicePresident Hart since there was a horsa car and 1 never before know it to be necessary to use picks on the road But we had to get picks today and we couldnt get along without them The great trouble Is with the lea which formed on the ratlswhen the first snow fell on top of the rain on Sunday night Several of the horses were badly strained be fore the running of the earn was given up but none was lost Half a dozen cars were stalled nil but one of which had been brought back to time stables at Sixtysixth street by S oclock I 31 Thin Harlem Cable rood which Is n part of the Third avenue system had four cars running Monday but none yesterday There was no trouble with the cable Itself No attempt was made to start a horse car yesterday The Second avenue horse car line started out to clear the tracks from the stables at Ninety sixth Street southward About 250 mon were at work with shovels The company means to start the cars as soon as It can clear the tracks down to Houston street Fifteen cars were started yesterday and only three could be extricated Work on the track was continued during the night Fourth avenue horse cars ware out lost night nnd were carrying passengers en a portion of the road from the depot to below Twentythird btrcet People cheered them as they went fAZR AND WAKHER TODAY That the Prediction That the Iooal Signal Office Makes Vaefflclallr Sergeant Dunn the chief Signal Service officer at this station was not much bettor oft yesterday as to reports from other stations than he was on blizzard Monday He was able to give a good account of the course and progress of the storm but in the matter ef deductions and probabilities he wished to be distinctly understood as not speaking officially as he was not in communication with the signal ofllco at Washington The storm centre ho said was yesterday oft the New England coast and still elllngoastwnrdly In New England they were getting on Tuesday what was experienced here the day before Here us there the btorm centre was at sea off the coast However severe the Now Yorkers may be disposed to consider the meteorological treatment they have had they must bear In mind that they were only on the edge of the disturbance bergeant Dunn says that thero were fiercer winds near Its heart than vvu felt here and he Is positive that there will be many reports of suffering and disaster from tho sea along the coast Ho also says that the storm which was one of the most remarkable that has bean recorded since sclentlllc observations began to bo made will cross tbo Atlantic with little loss of Its strength This means In addition to great perils for ocean voyagers n probability of a weather experience approximating ours for London and other Kuropeuu cities Tha remarkable feature ot time storm was the combination of bleu winds and heavy snow Wind btorma of eiiuul severity are not entirely unlioard of and lust as heavy falls of snow have burdened the liiMrumonts of measurement But to get them together is a now and not altogsthnr pleasant variation hercennt Dunn with the reservation already noted Mild that the weather today would be likely to be fair ami silently warmer with moderate winds homo slight snow squalls might Intervene The lowest temperature was u ° above ut 7 A M and the greatest velocity of tho wind vvns 60 miles an hour at 2 oclock In the morning From that It gradually slacked on being > ut 2 P M and 15 at midnight The bnioinetar began to rise early In thin day mind continued gradually Its upward course The temperature nt midnight was 14 ° and Her gaunt Dutinh assistant repeated then his us hiirunco that the whither today would proba bly bo fair and slIghtly warmer The SfHyiir and the Wire Mayor Hewitt wild yesterday that he was in no way responsible for the failure to get the olectrio wires underground that he was the author of the original bill under which the Sub was CommissIoners wore appointed and that he Iind voted for every practical measure toget tIme wires underground Ho felt that lie had mme ull hoi could to get the work done lie did not think the work had been Impeded by his re fusal to open twentylive miles of streets at the beginning of winter and considered ft rather

nay through the bank ot snow piled up In the tunnel No progress was made howover and the engine wits kept running up and down tha different tracks In the yard to keep them clean The GOO men worked

doauatchor of the Now Haven road said that such a drift extending a distance of 300 foot bad boon encountered Another engine was sent up but was stalled In the cut and It required a Croat deal of

passengers were well provided for The Chicago limited dun hero at 7 P M on Monday night was held at Schenectady Mo trains ware allowed to move between Syracuse and Albany and all eastbound trains were held at the latter city The snow was reported to be seven feet deep on the Harlem tracks and even as far as Albany the snow lay piled up for several feet Mr Depow said that he had tried to employ more men to clear away the snow but had found It Impossible The present condition of the stalled trains he said shows the necessity for stoves in cars If it were not for the stoves In these trains the passengers would freeze to death because the fires In the locomotives are all out for lack ot water and there would therefore be no steam cither UYIHO IN THE STATION The New Haven rood officials
