Washout In Platte Canon Delays an
Excursion Train With Nearly Or\e
Thousand People.
Denver, July 25.—The Republican
this morning says: The storm yester
day was one of the most severe, while
it lasted, that has ever visited Den
ver. In five minutes fifteen-hund
redths of an Inch of rain fell, and
ninety hundredths of an inch camq
down during the storm. No serious
damage was reported in Denver, al
though much inconvenience was
caused to many.
The greatest damage was done in
Platte canon, where, because of the
washout between Dawson's and Buf
falo. on the Colorado & Southern, over
a thousand of the Knights of St. John
and their friends, who held a picnic
at Dome Rock, were held until an early
hour this morning. They were
brought down by a special train. The
regular train on the Colorado &
Southern on the South Park division
was not able to get out at all last
night and a large number of fishermen
were held there and they will not be
able to get out until to-day.
Heavy rains occurred along the
Moffat road, although no serious dam
age was done. A washout and wash in
took place on the Colorado & Southern
between Golden and Forks creek in the
Clear Creek district. This, however,
will be soon repaired. Traffic was re
sumed last night.
The heaviest storm known there vis
ited the region of South Platte canon.
The stortn in the canon began at 12:30
in the greater part of the district. The
trouble started with a heavy cloud
burst at the top of the divide form
ing the water shed between Buffalo
creek and Dunaway. This was fol
lowed by another cloudburst at Well
ington lake.
The water from the two cloudbursts
rushed down Buffalo creek and the
gulches in Buffalo park. Several mile?
of track between Dawson’s and Buffalo
on the Colorado & Southern were
washed out at intervals and so great
was the damage that no trains could
be carried by the washout. The regu
lar train. No. 72, will not he able to
get down until to-day sometime, if it
can get out then.
There are a great many fishermen
on this train who went up to spend
Sunday fishing and they were tied up.
Ail of the .hotels, inns and cottages
above Buffalo were filled to overflow
ing and the stranded passengers made
the best of the situation.
There were about 1,000 persons at
the Knights of St. John picnic at Dome
Rock, and they were not able to get
to Denver until an early hour this
morning. The two trains of excur
sionists left Denver yesterday morn
ing shortly after 8 o'clock, and they
were put down at Dome Rock.
The engines were taken to Pine
Grove for the purpose of turning them
around, but before they could get back
the cloudburst had come and the track
was washed out. A train of ten cars
was sent out of Denver last night at
8:20, which reached Dome Rock about
11 o'clock, and the Knights and their
families and friends were brought to
Denver early this morning.
The damage done at Buffalo park
was great. Bridges between Lake
Wellington and Buffalo Park were
swept away, and several miles of
wagon road was washed out. the dam
age to the roads being estimated at
$2,000. The Buffalo Park dam and the
county bridge w*ere almost totally de
stroyed. The water rushed down from
the divide in a wave forty to two hun
dred feet wide and fifteen feet deep.
Hundreds of trees were washed away
and a great deal of damage was done
to private property.

the bench, and. in fact, it has not been
settled that he will resign at all. Ho

Every Denver packer is again ready

President Donnelly Orders Men Out
Because Packers Have Not Kept
Their Agreement.
| Chicago. July 23.—The stockvards
strike, which was renewed yesterday
morning in Chicago and all the other
points where the big packing compa
nies have branches, because the strik
ers were dissatisfied with the manner
in which the employers proposed to re
instate their former employes pending
a settlement for arbitration, will con
tinue for a number of days, at least.
A joint conference between represent
ative* of both sides of the contro

lied trades in an attempt to bring
about a peaceable adjustment of this
second strike was unsuccessful and
the meeting was adjourned last night
ai 8:30 with the understanding that
another conference would be held to
While the Immediate provocation for
the renewal of the strike was appar
ently the failure of the packers to take
back a large proportion of the strik
ers who returned for work yesterday,
me real cause of the rupture was in
ferred to be a circular issued yester
day by the packers. The circular pur
ported to explain to the public the
agreement entered into with the labor
leaders. Seemingly the circular could
bo taken as implying that the agree
ment did not bind the packers to re
empJov all of the men who walked out.
The construction the labor leaders had
placed upon the agreement was that
all should he re-employed within forty
five days.
When the S.000 butchers and their
helpers went Into the yards here yes
terday to take their old places the gen
eral greeting received was:
“We cannot take back more than
half the regular force.”
Immediately there was a woeful dis

The men held a conference of an Im
promptu nature and reached an agree
ment to act as a unit or not at all.

to this, and a committee was sent to

“It is a principle of common law
that the individual may not so use
his person, property or liberty as to
infringe upon the rights ond privileges
of others. Or. if so using, he must
without fail indemnify the injured by
making good the loss. It is a fact, un
controverted by all save the parties In
interest, that the 250.000 liquor deal
ers in America, through their busi
ness. constantly and seriously Infringe
upon the rights of all our 80.000.000
people and that they do not indemnify
us for the damage inflicted.
For every dollar they pay Into our
treasuries, municipal, state and nation
al. it costs us. in providing for the i»-
sane. paupers and criminals their
business produces. $16.50.
“Who is responsible? The voters
are the real culprits. They are the
principals in a business in which the
liquor dealers are but the agents. The
informed voters, and especially the
Christian voter who admits in his
church resolutions that no Christian
should vote for saloon parties and
then does so vote, admits that he Is
not a Christian, though professing to
to be.
"Our party stnnds for a country so
financially, politically and morally
clean as to make it an object lesson
to be imitated through natural selec
tion by the effete civilization of the
Old World rather than for a country
whose ideal government must be can
nonaded into those whom we would bo
nevolently assimilate.”
