Heavy snows are reported on the
Denver, Texas & Ft. Worth railroad
near the Colorado line, and trains on
that road are blockaded. Last night
a snowslide occurred near Leadville
in Empire Gulch and two men were
killed. Their bodies have not yet
been recovered, and their names are
A Topeka special says: The moat
sanguine applicant for senatorial
honors this morning is Bishop
W. Perkins, ex-congressman from
the third district. Major E. N
Morrill seemingly leads the field, for
the impression is growing more and
more that no Topeka man will be
honored. Tho governor will give
no information except that he will
make tho appointment this week.
The news has !just been received
that General Lorenzo Garcia, in com
mand of the troops in the field in the
northern part of Mexico, with head
quarters at Mier, had been murdered
by his command and the entire
forces, numbering several hundred
men, under his immediate command
had gone over to the sido of the
revolutionists, crossing over into
Texas in a body at a point between
Roma and Carrizo.
The great barrel works of the
Standard Oil company are burned
down and the loss is estimated at
from $1,000,000 to 11,500,000. The
fire started at 2:30 last night in the
heading room of the barrel works. It
is estimated that' there were between
1,000,000 and 2,000,000 barrel heads
in the building and from 10,000,000
to 15,000,000 barrel staves. The
structure was about 350 feet long,
200 feet wide and three stories high.
Tha heaviest- snow storm of the
year is now raging in the southern
and western portions of Colorado.
At Durango the storm is the heav
iest that has visited that section for
several years at this time ot the year,
tho snow being about twenty inches
on a level and still coming down.
At Rico the snow is three feet deep,
while on Trout Lako range there is
still more. The Rio Grando South
ern train has been running daily up
to date, although it is doubtful if
they get through to-day.
Joseph McCoy, the alleged leader
of tho gang of Rio Grande express
robbers, was arrested near Salt Lake
City yesterday, and the United
States Secret Service Agent Walker
is now on his way to this ciiy with
tho prisoner. Joseph McCoy was
associated with his father in tbe
murder of W. C. Arnold at Cotopaxi
in 1887, and escaped from jail at
Canon City two years ago. Since
that time little has been heard of
The trouble between tho Southern
Pacific company and the Order of
Railway Telegraph operators has
been settled. Concessions were made
on both sides, the result a victory for
tho telegraphers, who are permitted
to join the order, while the company
withdraws the objectionable affidavit
and compromises the trouble with
reference to the employment of
student operators. Nearly all the
men w ho remained out on the strike
or were discharged for joining the
order, are to be reinstated by the
