Denver, Aug: 8. The flyer cn th
Kansas FaciSo was wrecked at day
light 4 miles east of here. Two
trainmen were killed outright, and
five passengers are taid to be fatally
injured, and others badly hart. The
killed are: John A. Ward, engineer;
W. B. Harrington, baggage-master.
The names of (he injured passengers
are not yet learned. The wreck was
canted bj a washout. Without warn

followed by the mail and baggage
car and the other cars wtre piled
abont in confusion. The engine is
completely under water in tbe mid
die of the stream with Kngineer
Ward nndcr it. The fireman is re
ported badly hart. The badly in
j'ired passengers were riding in the
forward coach. Ujers, the nearest
town to the wruk, is five miles
away, and the conduetor battened to
cover that distance on foot, arriving
at 6. and notified the railway ofliclals
at Denver. A wrecking train with

during the month of J6.790.i60. which
is accounted for by a corresponding de
