EVENING BULLETIN, AUGUST 28, 189G.
DOWN THE FLUME.
Tho snow lay deep iu tho Occur
d' Atones yes, inovo thau that, tho min
ing camps Ycro "eiiowttl in. " I Jind not
been tony in tho camp, and it was nil
new to mo, bo I naturally tied to Got
cnior Bill, foreman of tho Last Ohanco,
duriiiR tho exciting days of tho great
snowstorm. Tho minors gave him that
namo Ixvauso ho had gono to oollego
with a governor of ono of our eastern
states, llowas educated for tho bar, tmt
drink mado him a miner, nnd now that
ho was reformed tho company mado him
n foroman. When tho storm commenced,
tho mills wcro nil shut down and tho
water which furnished tho power was
turned from tho various flumoi
Tho day following tho ono of tho
heaviest snowfall it was reported nt tho
lower cud of tho gulch that an immenso
snowslldohad occurred during tho night
nt tho upper end. I procured n pair of
snowshoesand hurried to tho scene. Tho
manager and Bill woro superintending
tho working of scores of miners ill fact,
all tho nvailablu men.
"What's tho matter, Bill?" I inquired.
"Tho mon nt tho upper mill nro hurled
in tliis monntniu of snow, " ho answered.
"What! How many?"
"Four You see, (ho miners at tho
boarding house thero below escaped, but
those who slept iu tho loft of tho mill
nt tho head of tho gulch had no chauco
to leave. "
Thoso who havo visited tho Ccenr
d'Aleueswill recall how steep tho Irattos
riso from tho narrow gulches. At places
you can scarcely scalo them, nnA even
tho hnrdy pines can barely gain a foot
ing. Tho wind was now blowing in gusts
carrying cloud of snow from tho hutted
abovo, swirling down tho slopes, eddy
ing through thu gulches and banking tho
whitn powder at tho very feet of tho
miners. Shovels wero powcrlcs, but tho
men worked on in thu Ann belief that
thry would reach their comrades. But
no 6110 know whether tho old building
had stood the strain mid that tho poor
fellows were alive.
"It's no go, Mr. Bunion, " Bill de
spondently said. "Thero is no telling
Iiow long tho storm v ill keep up, and
even if it mioii MilwidM it will bo day
heforo wo can reach them. Moreover,
they cannot hvo long in that small
building without nir."
"I fear yon aro right, Bill. But it is
all wo can do, " (-lowly replied tho man
ager Thero was a momentary lull in tho
storm, when tho governor reiuuikcd,
with an anxious face: "Look at tho
streak down tho buttc. That must havo
been tho puth of tho slide. "
"Yes it originated on tho smooth
flume. " A blinding rush of snow from
, over tho mountains shut out tho view.
"Tho wind keeps tho flumo-baro near tho
top of tho slope," added tho manager
ufter wo had shifted our positions, for
tho snow was drifting about us.
All day long tho men toiled, and all
that night reliefs wero working, but
piogrOhS iu tho shaft was slow, as tho
snow continually caved in or was carried
in by tho md. During tho following
day and night thero m as no let up in
tho work. To mo alTairs looked more
hopeful, for tho storm bad spent its
finy and was now subsiding. That
niglit I asked Bill how deep hu thought
tho mow was where the men ere work
ing. "It's n hundrod feet if an inch," he
replied, "and wo havo not made moro
than -10 Thirty more feet should bring
us to tho roof, but, you mh it becomes
harder tho deeper wo get. "
Evidently Dill did not tako as hope
ful a view of affairs. I had movtd my
bunk to tho olllco building, and curly
tho fallowing morning I was aroused by
n loud knocking at tho door. It was the
governor Ho looked very deteimined
and hurriedly said that ho had planned
a hchoire, a sido issuo, during the night
nnd wanted mo to join him. Bill had
not slept or eaten much sinco tho slide,
t-0 worried had ho beou and anxious to
rescuo tho buried men. Ho had rovcrnl
hundred fcot of email, strong ropo with
him, and after n hurried breakfast at
tho ofllccrs' mesa flvo of us set out on
"Which way, Bill?"
"To tho tlume, " was all ho said.
I did not urgo him; it only irritates
n strong man to ask him to disclose his
plans iu timoof action. I decided to fol
low and await developments.
Tho ascent of tho.precipitous bntto in
tho gray of morning was no easy task,
but by taking a somowhut circuitous
route, which followed a "hogback," wo
avoided tho steeper slopo and beforo long
readied tho cxjicai'd portion it the
" And low, " Miid Bill, "we'll mine
down as far us we oun alung tho tlume. "
Wo did so, and after traveling a short
distance below tho point vheio tlio snow
firbt covered tho plunking wo dug sev
eral feet and denied the boalds
Tho scheme lind giadually unfolded
itself to mo. I saw it all now Bill was
going to havo himself lowertd down the
tinme and, if possible, through the 24
inch mttallio conduit, which prolonged
tho flume at a short distance from tho
mill. Then ho would trust to luck at
getting through thoturbino unil into tho
building And this was tho mnn who.
