CHIEF SHAKES UP
THE DEPARTMENT
Four Patrolmen Are Fired
From Force With Sum
mary Notice
NO REASONS ARE GIVEN
BARLOWS ONLY WORD IS FOR
GOOD OF THE SERVICE
Consternation fell In police and polit
ical circles last night when four of
the oldest policemen In the service were
discharged from the force by the city
council upon recommendation of Sam
Barlow chief of police The four men
who were summarily discharged for
the good of the service and the years
of their service in the department are
E W Price mounted police six
years
George Harris mounted police four
years
W H Clough patrolman six years
E F Rhodes patrolman two years
No quartet of bluecoats Is better
known than these men and theft re
moval stirred the police department to
Its depths Chief Barhw was asked
why they were discharged and he mere
ly said
For the good of the service
But what was the specific com
plaint
They are not good policemen
Were they drinking on duty
Well they were Indiscreetthey
have been guilty of many things which
do not entitle them to be connected
with the police department
The cases of the four men were
I
brought before the police and prison
committee yesterday afternoon their
removal was decided upon and the
matter was rushed to the city council
last night without a word of warning
to any of the men
Effective at Once
After the council had concurred In the
recommendation of Chief Barlow word
was sent to headquarters that four
heads had dropped effective at once
George Harris was at home when
Lieutenant Shannon advised him that
he was out He appeared at the coun
cil chamber a few minutes later look
ing for Chief Barlow He interviewed
all of the councilmen and said that
he had not been reprimanded by the
chief aside from the general repri
mands that have come to all members
of the force
I dont know what Barlow has
against me said Harris No one has
worked harder for the party or for
the department than I and I was sur
prised when I learned that I had been
fired
None of the others was seen last
night Chief Barlow had given none
of them a chance to resign as in the
case of L B Eddy a few days pre
vious although It Is said that Price
and Rhodes had a suspicion that they
were to be let out
Following the action of the council
last night a member of the police and
prisons committee stated that Chief
Barlow has the resignations of other
members of the force and that within
a short time there will be other dismis
sals come of which will reach higher
up than the man on the beat

THIRD SNOW V SliDE
AND MORE VICTIMS
Continued from Page One
locality were sleepjg The Burke ava
lanche occurred at = 30 this morning
Saved by Mine Foreman
That more lives were not lost at
Burke is due to the presence of mind I
of Seaman S Rowe foreman of the
Hecla mine Realizing the danger
which threatened the sleeping and un
suspecting citizens of the other town
a mile further up the stream he sent
Bert Clement on to Burke to rouse the
inhabitants and urge them to seek
safety
By a sad caprice of fate two of those
who lost their lives at Burke were
members of the rescue party which had
been at work all night at Mace They
were David Shepherd and Dick Rlchott
These men were among the first to re
spond to the call for succor when the
news of the Mace disaster reached
Burke They procured tools and hur
ried to the scene of the accident where
they joined their efforts with the oth
ers and stormed the mass of Ice and
earth which blocked the canyon A
little after 3 oclock Ling impressed
with the same idea as Rowe that the
town of Burke was In imminent danger
of being visited with a similar catas
trophe at any moment they started
back to aid in getting the women and
children out of the path of the greatest
danger They arrived at Burke just In
time to be caught In the slide there
Rescue of Aged Woman
Among the last to be taken out of the
snow alive at Mace was Mrs George
Hooper an old woman who lived on the
outskirts of the town She was burled
under the snow sixteen feet and It took
four hours of the hardest work to get
her out She had suffered from the
cold but was not badly Injured
Many strange thoughts coursed
I
through my mind while I lay burled In
the snowslide for more than two hours
at the MIssoula copper mine said R
J McLeod of Mullan who with his son
John A McLeod was rescued from his
perilous position only after a force of
men had shoveled for several hours
Aroused by His Son Too Late
At the time the slide occurred I
was sleeping in a small bunkroom just
off the compressor room My son was
on shift at the compressor Suddenly
I was aroused from sleep by my son
running into the bunkroom crying
Papa papa About that time the slide
struck the building with great force
and we were buried under a whirling
mass of snow and timbers
My son was knocked upon the bed and
lay upon me With the exception of my
rfght hand I was unable to move I
worked this free and managed to scrape
away sufficient snow to give us a
breath of air At first I thought that it
would be Impossible for us to breathe
more than a few moments but as I fran
tically tore away the snow with my free
hand air reached us
The slide Is approximately 3000 feel
long and save for a few places Is packed
as solid as ice
Number of Victims Unknown
Tonight a cold wind is sweeping the
canyon and impeding those who are
working heroically in the hope that a few
more lives may be saved Those who
have Journeyed from Wallace to Mace
and Burke say that the number of dead
probably never will be known accurately
as the huge slide can never be entirely
removed
A finger sticking above the surface of
the snow was responsible for saving the
life of Mrs George Gibson who was
buried in the slide at Mace For more
than an hour the woman lay burled with
only a finger protruding above the snow
Rescuers who stumbled over the rough
ground by the light of lanterns saw the
finger and dug her out with great dif
ficulty She was half smothered and al
most frozen when rescued Her condi
tion Is serious
Tonight a survey of the situation at
Mace shows that 12 dead bodies have been
recovered and that 37 persons are Injured
as a result of the slide while others are
believed to be burled under the snow and
debris
At Burke Mr and Mrs Al Newman and
James Rogers were among those caught
In the early morning avalanche They
were rescued but are not expected to
live Rogers was burled eight hours be
fore being rescued
PARAlYZE TRAffiC
OVER fiVE STATES
Continued from Page One
brought deluges of water upon the right
Qf way of the Southern Pacific
Several Washouts Reported
Reports coming to the general officers
of the Southern Pacific and Oregon i
Short line in Salt Lake tell of a bad wash
out at Rosny Two more washouts at
Tyrel and Palisade washed out long
stretches of track At Carlin the railroad
yards are flooded and county bridges are
being swept down the river and jammed
against the railroad
Water Is flooding the Elko yards and
there are several inches on the floor of
the passenger station at Elko At Wells
water Is over the entire track The sid
ing at Katy Is under water
These meager reports sent In from all
along the line only hint at the vast ex
tent of the damage E C Manson su
perintendent of the Southern Pacific Salt
Lake division was in touch with Nevada
points from midnight Sunday until late
last night sending work trains to places
where the track was put out of commis
sion While a work train went west from
Montello another was sent east from
Winnemucca During the day the de
layed trains were moving at Battle Moun
tain but progress eastward was very dif
ficult
It was later reported that water was
running over the tracks at Montello and
Wright Ten thousand sacks of gravel
and dirt were sent from Lakeside and
the bridge outfit from Montello was also
rushed to the scene
The damage to the Western Pacific was
not quite so great as that to the Southern
Pacific although the tracks of the Gould
road parallel those of the Harriman sys
tem for a considerable distance It Is
likely that the Southern Pacific will us
the Western Pacific tracks between
Winnemucca and Elko If it is found nec
essary to get tho trains through
No Through Trains
No through trains reached Ogden dur
ing the day local service between Salt
Lake and Ogden and the north being
maintained however Train No 1 west
bound on the Union Pacific was delayed
by a blizzard In Wyoming and did not
arrive till late last night From Echo
Utah east through Wyoming the Union
Pacific encountered one of the worst bliz
zards of the winter and traffic was
practically demoralized The snowstorm
attended by a wind with a velocity of 60
miles an hour Is reported at many places
along the line Reports of suffering of
cattle and sheep came in over the wires
Idaho did not escape the fury of the
elements by any means Two deathdeal
ing snowslides at Mace and Burke in
the northwestern part of the state were
followed by a heavy fall of snow in other
parts On the St Anthony and Mackey
branches of the Oregon Short Line traffic
was demoralized and the rotary plow was
out all day Sunday and yesterday The
rotary could hardly keep the track clear
so heavy was the fall of snow
Trains on the Denver Rio Grande <
westbound were delayed yesterday ow
ing to a rockslide near Newcastle Colo
Schedules were forgotten and while some
of the trains got through behind time
others barely escaped being annulled
The second section of No3 was reported
nearly 12 hours late bringing it Into Salt
Lake early this morning
The complete rebuilding of parts of the
line In Nevada will follow the wash
outs It was reported yesterday that a
warm wave starting east from California
encountered so much snow when it hit
Nevada that the fast melting resulted in
the great damage
Salt Lakers on Trains
It Is believed that there are a great
many Salt Lake people on the trains
that are stalled In Nevada Many were
Intending to return over the Southern
Pacific leaving San Francisco Saturday
night The time limit of the Elks ex
cursion tickets Is nearly up and that
has Increased the number of Salt Lake
people returning home at this time from
the coast
Among those who were expected to
leave San Francisco Saturday night and
I who are probably on the delayed trains
are Mrs Arthur F Barnes and daugh
ter Mrs John H White and daughter
Mr and Mrs D L Davis and State
Senator W N Williams and wife

I
Special to The HeraldRepublican
Ogden Feb 2S Because of blizzards
In Wyoming and washouts In Nevada the
Union Pacific and Southern Pacific rail
roads forming the principal transcon
tinental line of America were abandoned
all of today and from present indications
through traffic will not be resumed for
several days Hundreds of feet of road
bed between Winnemucca and Battle
Mountain on the Southern Pacific have
been washed out tying up traffic com
pletely Trains Nos 2 4 6 and 10 from
the west have been annulled and train
No 1 from the east arrived tonight
nearly 12 hours late The worst blizzard
of the year in Wyoming has demoralized
the Union Pacific schedules
For the first time In many years Ogden
saw a day go by with no train from the
east or west passing through the union
depot The only trains operating through
this city today are one Oregon Short
Line train from the north and the local
trains between Salt Lake and Ogden
Traffic over the Rio Grando was also
tied up for six hours owing to storms in
Colorado
The trouble began last Friday when a
sudden thaw sent the small creeks of
Humboldt valley in Nevada on destruc
tive rampages Every stream in that re
gion is a raging torrent and pieces of
track all the way from Winnemucca to
Battle Mountain arc giving way Intermit
tently East of Winnemucca the watet
from the hills has formed an artificial
lake many miles in extent with the road
bed of the Southern Pacific In the middle
To the east the trouble begins at
Echo Utah and extends to Green River
where raging blizzards and heavy snow
fall have played havoc with the Union
Pacific Reports from Wyoming points
this afternoon are to the effect that
sheep and cattle men are losing the ma
jority of their live stock

MYSTERY OVER SHOOTING
Peculiar Circumstances Connected
With Death of Cleveland Coombs
on Mountain Slope
While frlenda of Cleveland Coombs who
was found dead on the eastern slope of
Twin Peaks Saturday afternoon believe
that he accidentally shot himself and
died out of reach of surgical attention
others are strong in the opinion that he
took his life after brooding over re
verses In his brief career he being but
17 years of age He had lost his employ
ment about three weeks before his death I
but had kept the fact from his parents
Outside of certain periods young Coombs
was known as a most congenial comrade
He was a great lover of outofdoor life
and it was not thought unusual for him
to take a trip up the mountains as he
did when last seen Thursday afternoon
A peculiar feature of young Coombs
death Is the fact that the revolver was
In a holster when discharged and the
bullet that entered the victims heart
penetrated the leather end of tHB holster
It Is said a revolver could not easily be
discharged accidentally while in a holster
but it could be discharged In the holster
by raising the hammer and pressing the
trigger In the usual manner It Is not
believed that Coombs death resulted
from foul play as no human tracks
could be found in the neighborhood Qt
where the young man was found dead
The funeral of Coombs will take place
at noon today from his late home at No
m N street
YOUTHFUL RUFFIANS ROB
AGED WOMAN OF COIN
Two youthful ruffians took advantage
of the age and Infirmity of Mrs Agnes M
Jones aged S3 years when a 5 gold piece
rolled from her purse at the corner of
Second South and Main streets yester
day afternoon and seizing the coin
dodged hastily away through the crowd
although the woman pleaded with them to
return Mrs Jones who lives with her
daughter Mrs Jeannette McDonald at
3S6 Navajo street had alighted from a
Jordan bridge car when the mishap oc
I curred The action of the young thieves
means more than an ordinary misfortune
I to Mrs Jones and suggests that the guilty
parties are unusually depraved
