CHICAOO, Jan. 16.—The great storm which swept over the entire country from the northweMt last week has boon followed by a freeze the like of which has not been experienced sluci tbe memorable winter of IroA • The area of unusual cold ha? been general, extending from the extreme northern line of telf^mphic communication as far south as Texas and the gulf slates. Extreme suffering Is reported from all directions, especially Minnesota, Dakota, Montana and Nebraska, where 'many liven have been lost In Kansas thousands are suffering for want of but lor fuel and food, and in some counties aid is needed to save many from actual starvation. The storm, while of course less severe in Arkansas, Texas, and other southern states, still found the people there unprepanxl for It, and much suffering resulted. Crops and live stock have everywhere suffered more or less loss. Saturday night's dispatches indicated that many people bad been frozen Co. death, particularly in Minnesota, Nebraska, and the northwest territories Sunday night's reports swelled the death-roll by the following numbers lu tbe states and territories named: Dakota, »\; Nebraska, 19; Minnesota, 13; Montana, * All tbe dispatches indicate that the death lists are still far from complete. Tbo figures given Include only the fatalities reported Sunday, and many others are doubtless yet unrecorded. Tbe fuliowing dispatches give some of the details: • •" DEATH LIST FROM DAKOTA. Dnznns of People Go From Home Never to Keturn Alive. HURON, D. T., Jan. 16.—The bodies of Frank and William Nirison, who were found dead on tbe prairie near Virgil, were brought here Sunday evening, and will be forwarded to Chicago by the first train to their father, K. Nlrisou, who is interested in a carriage and wagon factory -there. Tbe young men almost threw away their lives for their friend Wilaon.. He had come to their home Thursday morning to work for them. While there the blizzard arose—a storm that no man could face verj long and live. Wilson very frequently spoke of bis children, who had gone to school that morning, aud was fearful for their safety. Late in the afternoon be could restrain his fatherly feelings no longer and sn id he was going to the »chool- house to take care of them, Tbe NirUona at once saldi "Then we will go with you," All set out afoot. Friday morm'ng the throe were found, widely separated, on the prairie, both of tho brothers dead in the snow, and Wilson blindly struggling on, almost unconscious of his condition. His sufferings are great, but It is thought he will not lose any limb* Tbe children are at the school and- warm. A little Bathrick girl was lost all one night with Miss Mary Connell, her teacher, and can not live. A Newoomb boy was with them, and froze to death. The teacher will not suffer permanently, Wdow Phllll|<s and her grandson were frozen lu Jerauld county, south of here. They had remained iu their sled all night, and left It before daybreak to find shelter. Both perished before going a mile. Gilklnson, milkman, has been hunted for since Friday morning, but has not been discovered. Adam Gorner is still missing. Lewis Merrhnan and his son, farmers of Bplak' county, lost their lives oy the storm Friday, nigUL The boy died .within a few feet of home, but tbe father staid out in tbe field, where tbe son bad left him. Another man and sou in the same county tried to go home in the storm, the father carrying his little boy most at the way. The exercise and anxiety saved the parent's life, but the child will die. The weather appears to be settled, as It Is calm. Saturday night it was SO below. At 6 o'clock Bunday evening it was 12 below. Hundreds of men are digging out the various lines of the Northwestern road. BT. PAUL, Minn., Jan. 16.—The loss of life by tbe great blizzard Thursday is shown to have been very great,, by far the largest number of casualties being reported from Dakota points.

TERRIBLE TIMES IN KAN8A3. Appalling Rrpnrts from the West—People Freezing; and Starving. KANSAS CITY, Ma, Jan. '.8.—Saturday and Saturday night were the coldest ever experienced in this section, the thermometer registering 19 degree* below zero at 9 o'clock Bunday morulnR, and no time Saturday did the mercury get above * below. Reports that coma from western Kansas are almost appalling iu their magnitude. The blizzards that ra^ed through tuattectloa a few weeks ago left the iteople In such bad condition that tbey were unable to stand the severe weather, and a large numlwr of deaths from cold and starvation are known to have occurred. It Is estimated that !<,000 people in Clark county are In a destitute condition, and unless immediate relief is afforded them the number of denths will be fearful to contemplate. The pastor of the Presbyterian church In Hartland, Kearney county, writes to the Aid society imploring assistance for the people of that section, saying that if relief does not soon come hundreds must die. In Indian territory the entire range is frozen over and the cattle are drifting badly. As most of the cattle on the western range are new Texns stock the lew will be very great, they being unused to such low tamper- turo. Thousands have already died! NEW EXPERIENCE FOR TEXAa lowest Had— Temperature They Ever Much Suffering. AUSTIN, Tex., Jan. 16.—A terrific norther struck this section Saturday night For several days It bad been spring-like weathpr, the mercury standing at about 74 degrees. It was at that point at n o'clock Saturday evening when the norther arrived At 8:30 It had dropped to S8, at 7 to,B8, and at midnight to 10, with, a strong northwester traveling at tbe rate of thirty-five miles an hour. The air was filled with fine snow. All of Bunday the mercury registered 8 to 10, with a roaring norther and driving sleet and snow. The rapid change in tbe temperature, the unprecedented cold and badly constructed bouses have caused intense suffering among the poor in tbe city. Ton is the lowest tbe mercury has ever been known to register here, but indications are favorable for a drop below that point. Slolffhlns; at Memphis. MiMpuia, Tenn., . Jan. 18.— The ragged edge of the blizzard reached here Bunday morning, and tho most phenomenal storm In tbe recollections' of the oldest citizens prevailed. The most wonderful feature of the storm was that a thunder storm was going on at the'same time, vivid flashes of lightning illuminated the skies and loud detonations of thunder'following. Sleighing was excellent. There are about four inchet of frozen sleet on the ground, with the thermometer at 10 degrees above cero. This weather Is so unusual that sleighs of the most primeval character and appearance have been made, and slelgb-bells are heard In every quarter of the city. So glad to get a sluighride are the people that the old and young, good and bad, even the strictest church people, are breaking the sabbath to the extent of shlghrlding, and they pay (! to $10 an hour for the use of sleighs. Political Affair* In Manitoba, WINNIPVO, Jan. 1 ft.—After an existence of barely six weeks the Harrison goveru ment resigned Friday 'night, and accom panled by all the Conservative mem bers of the local legist a t u r e wll henceforth take their seats on the 'opposition benches.

IS, --The tiitll «i iifluchoitun Oouu., a«a*u by I>ua4«y eight. Lew* WASHINGTON Cmr, Jan, NX—Speaker Car- sle presented his reply to tbe case of Tbobe, is contestant for his seat, Saturday, and with such effect that the committee refused a reopen tho matter, three of tho Republicans contenting themselves with not voting nd the other three voting with the Democrats. Carlisle's counsel, Mr. Hallam, opened his argument by holding that Thobe's complaint lowed no good reason for reopening the case, and then proceeded to read his testimony. One of tbe first affidavits was rom John A. Goodson, Carlisle's brother- n-law, positively denying that be had admitted that Carlisle bad been defeated, which denial was confirmed by an affidavit ram Charles Boston. Goodson's affidavit Iso denied that any relative of the speaker iad approached Wood, Thobo's first counsel, nd attempted to influence him. This statement was backed up by an affidavit from Wood, who swears that Thobo's case lan- nlshed because Thobe himself was indiffsr-'' nt The statement In Thobe's evidence that Carlisle or his friends had admitted his de- eat on the day succeeding the election was leclared false by several other witnesses. To meet tbe statements made by Thobe touching the meeting of Carlisle's friends on lection night, the counsel produced an affl- avlt signed by Judge George Parkins, W. V. Cleary, commonwealth's attorney, and a lumber of other gentlemen, who declare hat no meeting of the kind described could rave been held without their knowledge, and hat tbey know of no Such 'conference or meeting. But the most crushing part of this alimony was a letter from R, W. Nelson, ho was particularly mentioned in Thobe's estimony as having refused to participate n the alleged meeting. In this letter, which s addressed to Carlisle, Mr. Nelson declares bat he never attended such a meeting and [new nothing of it In Ilka manner tbe charges that tbe poll- looks bud been, tampered with wore met by mcwt conclusive statements. One of Thobe's affidavits was from John J. Pierce, of Cincinnati, to the effect that, with the exception of one precinct, all of the returns of Carroll county appear to be in the same handwriting. To meat this was produced, the affidavit of B. F. Harrison, the county clerk, who, as custodian of the poll- looks, affirms the correctness of the vote. A. T, Leeple, a Knight of Labor of Carrolton, declared that he waa present In Tbobe's Interest when the votes of Carroll county was counted, and that he found them fair and aeyond question as to correctness, J. T. Lewis, a Republican and ex-postmaster of 2arrollton, affirms the correctness of tbe envies In the poll-books. Similar affidavits 'rom five of the eight precincts of Carroll county were presented. In an affidavit Stephen Solar, a policeman of Covington, says he has several times boen approached by counsel for Tho ho, asking lim to make affidavit that he bad seen Car- Isle and a detective named Harris entering .lie office of Tbe State Journal on the even- ,ng after election. He bad been told that It might be to his 'Interest to make such an affidavit, and that In tbe event of his being out of employment he could make money by making such an affidavit. Affidavits were also read showing that Tbobe was indifferent and had said he would like to get out of the matter; he Lad no money to expend on the case, and the labor people who bad forced him into it had not coma forward with the funds. Speaker Carlisle's affidavit was then read, which Is In brief a general and particular denial of each and every charge affecting him made iu the affidavit* and statements presented by Thobe. Referring to the statement of Sypher that the election was lost by over-confidence, and that the polls were not opened or tickets on hand, Carlisle says he personally sent tickets In good time to all ths counties exo'p tone, and that one the executive committee attended to. Attorney Wood's alOJavit says be dropped the case because Thobe gave it* entire direction to Sypber; that Tboebe couldn't get funds was also a reason for his action. He pushed tbe case as rapidly as it was possible under the circumstances, and never told Tbobe that he could make money by letting it drop. He had told him that a street conversation between two or three democrats bad been overboard wherein they, had remarked that tbe easiest way out of the matter was to buy out tbe Thobe faction. Then a mild sensation was created by the reading of letters written to Lee Crandall, of this oily, by Bypher, in which the latter nrged biineolf as a particularly fitted-man to take up Thobe's case. He said that in addition to legal ability,.diplomatic and political influence would bave to bo used if success was to be hoped for, and that he (Sypher) could Influence certain Republican and protectionist friends to assist Thobe. Bypher vigorously protested against the reading of these letters, but said there was nothing in them he was afraid of and finally withdrew, his objection. ' Sypber was then given half an hour to reply to the contestee's case, but said nothing of such Importance as to give tbe committee a new view. His address was devoted to explanations and denials, and the reading of petitions. The committee then went into executive session and refused to reopen the case, Cooper, of Ohio, voting wit h tbe Democrats, and Rowel!, of Illinois, declining to vote. Then a resolution declaring Carlisle's right 'to the so&t was carried by tha votes of the nine De mocrate, and Cooper of Ohio, Rowell of Illinois, and Johnston of Indiana. Messrs, Houck of Tennessee, Lodge of Massachusetts, and Lyinan of Iowa ware excused from voting, BO there was no negative vote, but it is understood that .they will submit a minority report, in which they will set forth the strongest points set forth oy Thobe, and claim, not that be was elected, but that there is good grouud for reopening the case to enable him to prove his cane if he can, and this was the general opinion of tha Republican members, ' THE WOOL MENSTATE THEIR WANT& A Schedule of Dallas on the Product Offered For Con(rre»sloa*l Action.

Clemnnts on the Civil Service. WASHINGTON Crrr, Jaa It).—Congressman Clements, of Georgia, chairman of the committee on reform In the civil son Ice favors, some changes In tbe present law. He says bo is not opposed to civil servioe reform but thinks there is too much red-tape In tbe commission; that the whole list of eligible* should be sent to the appointing officers; that the examinations are too theoretical; that the forty-Ova year limit should be removed; that the south Is represented by men who were never within 100 miios of the states they represent, and that there are many aliens employed who should either become citizens on "walk." His principal objection, however, is that "there are, as be says, too many partisan Republicans iq the servioe who should be ousted. They, so be claims, are henchmen of the Republican party, appointed for that purpose, and are a dead weight on the service. Said be: "1 am in favor of true civil service reform, but tbera can be no honest civil service reform while the departments here are loaded down with •the partalsu appointees of past administrations." ._ ^ Treaty.

There Is no question as to the result; Springer, who is chairman! of the committee, succeeded lu securing a committee which is almost unanimous In favor of the "boomers." The minority report will regard'-th* bill as sanctioning an Illegal invasion of a territory held by olvilizud Indians under sacred treaty rights. On the floor of the bonse, however, considerable opposition to the ' scheme will be developed. NORTH ADAMS. Mass., Jaa 18. —The following story conies from Hancock, an isolated hill town near the New York state line: Carrie Brockaway, aged IS, hoa been receiving attention from Washington Sweet Farmer Brocfcaway, her father, and her brothers objected and warned Sweet to desist. The warning was disregarded. Brockaway and bin two sons armod themselvei and went to Sweet's house. Swe<>t learned of thulr coming and barricaded the house. When admittance was demanded Sweet ihot from a window, seriously wounding one of the sons In the hip. Shooting continued on both sides for some time. Finally the shots from within ceased. Just then Carrie, having heard of the action of her father and brothers, reached the (0000. She cried to her lover not t> shoot, as the Broackways approached the •ouse. When the door was forced open Sweet was found apparently dead, with a bullet wound In his neck.
