DENVER, Colo., Dec. 6.—Colorado
is snow bound, lying under a mantle of
white that is from two to five feet
deep and even greater in many of the
great canyons and draws. The storm
which began yesterday morning
reached blizzard proportions by after
noon, and from that time on until 3
o'clock this morning the elements
raged worst. It Is still snowing this
morning, but the wind his subsided to
a large extent.
Railroad traffic Is tied up, and in
Denver not a streetcar has moved
since 5 o'clock last evening. Trams,
snowplows and rotary sweepers are
helpless to move the thickly packed
wet snow, and the streets are con
gested with huge piles of the beauti
ful. Automobile and wagon traffic is
impossible, and it will probably be
days before travel conditions are re
stored to normal.
The storm has brought much suf
fering all over the state, and reports
of great losses to livestock are ex
pected as soon as telegraph and tele
phone communication, which is badly
interrupted. Is reopened. It 13 also
believed that the storm has cost more
or less human life. A report from
Central City in Gilpin county, in one
of the mountainous sections, says
that eight miners who formed a res
cue party to find two lost men per
ished ln the blizzard.
Deliveries of coal and food supplies
have ceased in Denver, with no imme
diate prospects for the situation be
ing alleviated. - Thousands of people
in the downtown districts were com
pelled to spend last night at hotels
and lodging houses. The \>lg depart
ment Btores rented entire hotels for
their army of clerks. The city threw
open the auditorium, which has a ca
pacity of 14.000, last night for the
protection of those who wished to
seek shelter wittnn its walls.
