Midland Train No. 103 Has Rear End Collision With a Freight on a High Bridge Near Buena Vista. 1 Midland train No. 103, Kiley Miller conductor, was 13 hours late io reaching ! this city Sunday, due to a wreck which ! occurred at bridge No. 155, just east of White Horae tank, on the hill above Buena Vista. A west bound freight train was ahead of the regular passenger train and had stopped at the tank, mentioned above, for water. This left the caboose stand ing on the middle span of bridge No. 155. Thiß bridge is 83 feet in height. Con ductor Beavers of the freight was ahead where the engine was taking water, aleo his head brakeman, VanDueen. At the caboose on the middle span of the bridge was Owen McCarty, the rear brakeman. He was about to get off the caboose to go back and flag the train when the ac cident occurred. The west bound passenger was round ing a rocky bluff when Fred Vorse, the eugineer, noticed the brakeman juet at tempting to get off the caboose. He was coming at a full gait and struck the caboose right as it stood on this high bridge. The brakeman had no place where he could step off, as the bridge was narrow, and he was ground to pieces by the oncoming engine of the passen ger. At the time of the accident all the brakes on the freight were set, as they were on a descending grade, and this caused the accident to be more severe than it might otherwise have been. The engine plowed through the caboose and into the third car ahead before it was stopped. The caboose was simply ground to splinters by the impact. "It is miraculous,” say the passengers on the Midland passenger, "that our train did not go over the high bridge. The caboose was on the central span aud there was nothing to hold us on that bridge had our engine jumped the track at the time of the impact. A fall of 83 feet would have killed many. As it was dj one was injured on the passenger aud the brakeman, Owen McCarty, was the only person killed.” Whether it was the slowness of the brakeman in getting back to flag the passenger, or some other cause, has not been determined yet as the cause of the accident. Mrs. Anna Venables and son Perry arrived in the city yesterday. Mm. Venables is on a visit to her parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. P. Noland. She will re main several weeks before returning to her home at Pueblo Througk Sunday Vudkla. Antiquaries will read with mingled satisfaction and regret that the Ro man Wall station of Borcovicus, or Housteads, has been closed to the pub lic, the reason being that Sunday van dal* had taken to hurling stones from it down the neighboring ravine. The great wall has already Buffered more than enough spoliation. The farm house of Plane Trees, hard by, wan built with stones taken from this very station; and all along from Carlisle tm Newcastle it is more or less a ruin— the more pitiably because what re mains of it, assailed by no worse en emies than winter and rough weather.

John Wilkerson at Palisades Has a Leg Broken in Three Places.— Injury Caused by Tram Cars. John Wilkerson, the lessee of what was known as the Ramey coal mine at Pali sades, met with an accident Saturday afternoon which broke his leg in three places. Dr. H. S. Henderson was called there late in the afternoon and dressed the leg, the work being of the moet delicate na ture in minor surgery. The accident was caused about as fol lows: There is a long tram at the mine and the loaded cars going down pull up the empties. At the head of the in dined plane there is a big drum around which is wound the cable which pulls the care up the tram. There is a brake to this cable drum by which the velocity of the oars is eon trailed. The heavy ears going down the plane of cousre have the greater power and furnish more than sufficient to pull the empties ou the re turn. This brake regulates the velocity of the returning cars and also the loaded cars going down the plane. This brake broke and the empties came up flying and struck Wilkerson as he was stand* iDg in front of the drum, from which po sition he could not get out of the way of the fast flying ascending cars. Ha was taken to Palisades and there his wound was dressed by Dr. Hender* son. It was hoped that the injured man could be brought to this city aud taken to the hospital, but that institution was filled with patients and it was impoeei* ble to bring him to the city. It is ex* peoted that he will be brought down in a few days and be within easy reach of his physician’s care. Lots of Snow. Word comes from Marshall pass that a terrific snow storm is raging there and prospects are that the storm will contin ue several days. The paasengsr train managed by the aid of the rotary to get through, but too late to make connec tion with No. 4 on the main line at Sali da. All freights have been abandoned and the rotaries and flangers have been sent out from Salida and Gunnison to clear the traok. Three or four feet of snow have fallen on the pass during the past 48 hours and it ia now drifting badly. Card of Thanks.
