FIFTY PERSONS DEAD
AWFUL RAILROAD WRECK IN
. COLORADO.
Ilend.On Crnah on the Denver and
Rio Grande, Cars Taking Fire and
Many of the Victims Belnff
Itoaaitetl Alive.
In a head-on collision on a curve
near Adobe, Col., about 2 o'clock Fri
day morning, the heavy New Mexico
and Colorado express and the Lcadvllle-
Denver local No. 10 of the Denver and
Rio Grande Railroad were turned into
a mass of wreckage and fifty persons
were reported killed. Failure to deliv
er the train dispatcher's revised orders,
making a change in meeting points, was
the direct cause of the disaster.
A blinding blizzard prevailed at the
time of the wreck. Fire which envel
oped the ruins of the coaches and ex
press and mall cars a moment after the
collision added Its horrors to the scene.
Many bodies taken from the burning
mass could not be identified, so badly
are they charred. Relief trains were
sent from Pueblo and Florence as soon
as news of the disaster was received by
the railroad authorities, but because of
ot the cold, snow and smoke from the
burning wreck 1 the work of the relief
crews nvas slow.
The express train, known as No. 3,
was a double-header. Death came to
Engineer Walter Causlet of the first en
gine of the express as he sat In his
cab trying to work . the emergency
brakes. Fireman A. II. Smith, In Engi
neer Causlet's engine, saw the headlight
of No. 10 as the latter rounded the
curve about 200 yards away, rushed to
his engineer's side to warn him and
jumped. Engineer William . Hollis of
the local was killed in his cab. His
charred body was recovered and easily
Identified. Fireman Suddworth also was
killed.
Little short of marvelous was the
escape from death of Engineer Grant
Kelker and Fireman Harry nartman,
crew of the second engine of No. 3.
Kelker saw No. lG's headlight and,
opening his air valve to the limit,
shouted to his fireman. Both jumped
from the cab. '
'Collide on a. Curve.
The scene of the wreck Is near mile
post 147, where a bluff makes the road
Inrn sharply. It Is only a short dis
tance west of the place whtre passen
ger train No. 10 and freight train No.
03 collided Oct. 15, 1004, causing the
death of seven persons and the Injury
of many. Conditions at this point are
trying even In normal weather, because
the Santa Fe tracks parallel the Denver
and Rio Grande rails. It is easy for
an englnenian of the Rio Grande to
suppose that an approaching headlight
I that of a Santa Fe engine. It Is
Impossible for the englnemen to see
each other's trains until the locomotives
are within 200 yards of each other.
The three engines were destroyed, but
none of the tourist and standard sleep
ers was demolished.
It Is said that the train dispatcher
originally Intended to have No. 3 and
No. 10 meet at Adobe, one and one-half
miles from the scene of the wreck. At
Florence the conductor and engineer
of No. 1C received orders to meei No.
3 at Beaver, five miles east of .Portlaad.
The express train, It was said, was to
have received similar orders at Swal
lows, but in the blizzard the train may
have, ran past an order board. No or
ders were given . to No.. 3 to hold at
Beaver for the local and the double
header rushed on toward Adobe. The
collision followed.
THE COAL SITUATION.
Strike, of Anthracite Itinera Now
Sfcma Probable.
The coal mine situation is far from
being settled. No man can prophesy
with any degree of certainty Just what
the outcome will be. From present arv
pearances, however, it seems likely that
the bltumlrous miners will receive a
considerable advance In wages rang
ing anywhere from 5.5 to 12 per cent.
This, however, is dependent upon the
outcome of the dispute between the
anthracite miners and operators. The
anthracite' miners have demanded an
increase in wages, an eight-hour day,
equalized' pay and other modifications
of the present system. The operators
have announced that they will refuse
every one of these demands. If ' the
men force the operators to Increase
wages or if they close the mines by
striking, the bituminous operators will
grant the advance demanded of them,
for the reason that the Increased cost
of rroductlon or the lessened output of
anthracite would create a greater de
mand for soft coal and therefore give
them an entering wedge into a market
now controlled by tbelr rivals. The
success of the bituminous miners de
pends, it would seem, on the anthracite
men either going on strike or winning
their demands, and at the present mo
ment a strike seems probable. The op
erators claim they have so much coal
on hand that unless a strike Is pro
longed during the greater part of a
year It will not be necessary to raise
the price of coal.

i Th renort of Mr. Tillman on the House
rate bill, the reading of the views of Mr.
Newlands and a speech by Mr. Nelson
on that subject occupied the time the Sen
ate devoted to the regulation measure
Thursday. The message of the President
regarding.' the recr.nt Moro battle " wa
read, and Mr. Bacon spoke of the affair
. "slanshter.' Mr. Lodge urged that
criticism be withheld until all the ?act
should be made known. The House reso
lution, broadening the powers of the In
terstate Commerce Commission in its in
vestigation of charges of discrimination
against railroads, was adopted. A resolu
tion by Mr. Stone directing an inquiry
into the Postoffice Department's rulings
on the admission of college publication!!
to the mails as second-class matter was
n.i1. The additional power which
President Roosevelt suggested should be
given the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion in making the special investigatbn
into tbe relations of the coal and oil in
dustries with the railroads was conferred
hv th House in the pasaire of the Town-

priation bill severe criticism of the recent

There was no session of the Senate Fri
day. The House indulged in the first
teal filibustering of the session. It wa
due to the attempt of Mr. Prince of Illi
nois to put through his bill abolishing
the grade of lieutenant general in the
amy, which would take away the
chances of promotion for Generals Cor
bin and MacArthur. For several hours
the leaders of both factions exhausted
the possibilities of parliamentary tactics,
and when a truce was declared the bill
stood as the rlar 0TQT of business,
and an amendment by Mr. Grosvenor to
let in Corbin and MacArthur was saved
from tlefeat only by the absence of a
quorum. Previously there had been four
hours of debate on the legislative bill,
during which Mr. Shackleford (Mo.)
scored Speaker Cannon's rule of the

TRUSTS ARE HIT.
Snpreme Court Decides They' Meat
Convict ThciiiKelves.
Corporations can not receive immu
nity from incrimination as individuals
and corporation officials must testify
when called before grand juries. Offi
cers of corporations may be granted
immunity as individuals, but must pro
duce evidence to convict the corpora
tions in which they are Interested. All
corporations are creations of a sover
eign power and are not privileged to
commit 11113- illegal act or possess any
thing unlawful. When a corporation
does either It is placed beyond the pale
of constitutional protection.
This is the principle laid down by
decisions of the United States Supreme
Court in four cases affecting the paper
and tobacco trusts. The result will be
that all corporations must produce
their books and papers when nctions
are brought against them by the gov
ernment and witnesses may be com
pelled to answer all questions. Indi
vidauls may have immunity from self
incriminations, but corporations are not
individuals.
. It Is possible under the Supreme
Court's decisions for the Department of
Justice absolutely to prevent the com
mission of Illegal and unlawful acts by
any corporation. No corporation against
which proceedings are Instituted here
after can avoid convicting itself if any
of its acts have been illegal. A cor
poration will henceforth have no pro
tection in the courts from self-conviction
unless Its books and papers are de
stroyed by some officer, who will as
sume responsibility for contempt.
Two opinions were rendered regard
ing the tobacco trust and two affecting
tbe paper trust. Justice Brown handea
down tbe decision on the tobacco trust
and Justice, McKenna on the paper
trust Justice McKenna read his deci
sions first and referred forward to
Justice Brown's opinions, which follow
ed, thus Interlocking the four cases in
volving Identical principles..
