THIS QUI i KILLED Horrible Disaster on the Rio Grande Near Pueblo, Colorado. Tragedy Caused by Failure of Oper ator to Deliver an Order Which Changed the Meeting Place of the Trains. Pueblo, Colo. In a blinding storm which made It almost impossible for the trainmen to see ahead, two trains collided headon at a point midway between Portland and Adobe, twenty-five miles west of Pueblo, at 2:20 o'clock Friday morning. Im mediately following the collision sev eral of the wrecked cars jurat into flames and were consumed, a number of passengers being burned to death. Over thirty others were Injured, but of these It Is not thought any were fatally hurt. The cause of the wreck Is attributed to the failure of an em ploye of the road to deliver an order, which changed the meeting place of the two trains. Conservative estimates on the to tal loss of life place the number of dead at thirty-five. Rio Grande of ficials insist that the exact number of persons on the two trains cannot be ascertained; that It Is. impossible. P. F. Lively, night operator at Swal lows, whose alleged failure to deliver orders to train No. 1G is supposed to have been the cause of the wreck, has been employed by the road for many years. He was relieved from duty and will be suspended until the matter is thoroughly investigated by the officials. Both trains were running at the usual speed, the deep snow and high wind making it necessary to exercise exceptional care. Suddenly both headlights flashed out from the dark ness, and It was realized for the first time that something was wrong. Ac cording to the story of Fireman J. H. Smith of the westbound train, Engi neer Walter Coslett opened the emer gency brake and the train was checked for an instant, but the slip pery rails and the momentum of the heavy train carried it on. Immediately after the collision a sheet of fire ran through the cars on both sides of the engines, and In a twinkling the crackling sound of breaking timbers started the men to action. In the forward coach of the westbound train every seat was oc cupied by passengers, most of whom were homeseekers on their way to the northwest. A number of foreign ers were among them and in their terror they gave up life without mak ing any attempt to reach safety out side the burning car. Paralyzed with fear and with prayers upon their lips, they sank to the floor of the car and were roasted alive. The cooler ones in the car, seeing their danger, rushed for the windows and doors, and with the aid of the passengers in the rear of the train and those members of the train crew who were unhurt, man aged to reach the open air. Many of them were injured more or less seri ously by the rough handling they re ceived or from flying glass -and tim bers. DAMAGE BY SLIDES. Snow Thundering Down Mountain Sides In Colorado. Denver, Colo. Ouray, Durango, Sil verton, Leadville, Aspen and other smaller mining camps have been vis ited with snowslldes during the past few days. Hairbreadth escapes from the snow which thunders down the steep sides of the mountains are reported from every mining camp, and grave fears are entertained for scores of daring prospectors and miners who are cut off from the outside world in their lonely cabins far up In the hills. One slide at Silverton struck the edge of the town, doing considerable damage. The railroads In the San Juan region are blockaded. The South Park road Is blocked by a slide near Leadville.

HEART-RENDING SCENES Surviveoa Tell of Horrible Sights Fol lowing Wrecking of Train. Pueblo, Colo. Conservative esti mates on the loss of life as the result of the collision of the two passenger trains on the Denver & Rio Grande railway twenty-five miles west of here, place the number of dead at thirty six. Seventeen charred, mangled and utterly unrecognizable bodies lie in the Pueblo morgue, two others are in the morgue at Florence, several other persons are known to be dead, and poslbly a score of bodies were burned to ashes. There was not a single entire body recovered from the wreckage, with the exception of the engine man, who, although horribly mangled, had not been reached by the swift flames which swept through the wrecked cars. Only seven of the dead can be iden tified and only one these corpses re tains sufficient of the outline of the features to be readily recognizable. Two telegraph cperators are held in the public mind to be re sponsible for the awful disaster al though no formal Indictment has gone out against them. Both have been or dered discharged from the service of the road. A coroner's jury has been empanelled and will Investigate the cause of the accident. It develops that R. G. Whitney, wuo was being escorted to the penitentiary by Deputy Sheriff Ed. E. Baird, had been chained to his seat and when the fire broke out In the wreckage he had no chance whatever to escape. By the hand of fate his guard perished with him. The laws of Colorado have a provis ion making It a crime to fasten pris oners in transportation to car seats.

One hand was pinioned down under the debris, but her head and the other arm was free. "She was trying to keep her head from the flames and, with her free hand, was holding the Infant as high in the air as she could. Just as we were about to reach her she gave a gasp and fell back into the flames with the babe." At a meeting of the priests at Ka zan, Russia, application to recommend the sale of church lands to the peas ants was seriously considered. The author of the resolution argued that it was not Christianlike for the church to retain immense stretches of uncul tivated soil while the peasants were starving for want of land.

In some reminiscences of Sir Fred erick St. John, a diplomatist who served his country (England) well, we have the facts which prompted Gen. Gordon to carry no weapon but a cane when leading the Imperial troops dur ing the Tal-ping struggle. "When acting In . conjunction with the Chinese general, San-ko-lin-sln, against either Nankin or Foochow, Gordon received a message from the rebel leaders offering submission if their lives were guaranteed. Having obtained the consent of the Chinese commander, he agreed. The town sur rendered, and the three rebel chiefs appeared before San-ko-Hn-sln. He, seeing that they had not shaved their heads in sign of submission, had them decapitated on the spot. Whereupon, exasperated beyond control by such treachery, Gordon armed himself with a revolver, and was hastening to the general's tent with the intention of chastising him in the most summary manner for his breach of faith, when suddenly he paused, and coming, on reflection, to the conclusion that his contemplated act was simple murder, he threw away his weapon and regis tered a vow that, so long as he re mained In China, he would never again carry any woapon more formid able than a cane."
