Employee forgot to deliver an order and two'passenger trains came to gether during a blinding storm— Wrecked trains soon was ablaze and passengers burned alive. In a blinding storm which made it almost impossible for the trainmen to see ahead, two passenger trains col lided headon at a point on the Denver & Rio Grande road midway between Portland and Adobe, 25 miles west of Pueblo, Friday morning. Immediately following the collision several of the cars burst into flames and were con sumed, a number of the passengers burned to death. Over 30 others were injured, but of these none were fatally hurt. The wreck was accompanied with horrors exceeded only by the Eden dis aster, which occurred August 7, 1904, on the line of the same railroad. The trains were the Utah-California ex press No. 3, westbound from Denver, and the Colorado-New Mexico express No. 16, eastbound from Leadville and Grand Junction. They met on a sharp curve. They were less than 200 yards apart when the engineers discovered that a collision was imminent. The cause of the wreck is attributed to the failure of an employe to de liver an order which changed the meet ing place of the two trains. < While the exact number of lives lost in the Adobe wreck will never be known, .it will undoubtedly take rank among the great disasters in the his tory of railroading. In other wrecks there has E>een greater loss of'life, but none has been productive of greater horrors. • Conservative estimates on the loss of life place the number of dead at 36. Seventeen charred, mangled and un recognizable bodies lie in me Pueblo morgue, two others are in the morgue at Florence, several other persons are known to be dead and possibly a score of bodies were burned to ashes. There was not a single entire body recovered from the Wreckage, with the exception of the enginemen, who, al though horribly mangled, had not been reached by the fierce flames which swept through the wreckage. Bits of charred fiesh and piles of bones were all that indicated that a holocaust had occurred, but trained eyes picked out the pelvic bones from tue charred masses, and from these it was seen that, so far as the search had progressed, no less than 36 human beings had perished. List of Dead. Following is a partial list of those who perished in the wreck: William Hollis, engineer No. 16, Pueblo. Walter Coslett, engineer No. 3, Pueblo. H. D. Sudduth, fireman No. j.6, Pueblo.

FATAL SNOWSLIDE ONE HEN KILLED AND PROPERTY DESTROYED NEAR OURAY, COL Camp Bird Mining Company Miii De stroyed and Loss Will Be Over 5500,- OOO—Tao Men Injured Second Slide Occurred in Evening, Making a Clean Sweep. Pueblo, Col., March 19. —A special to the Chieftain from Ouray says: A snowslide at 1 o'clock Sunday morning killed one man, injured two and damaged property belonging tu the Camp Bird Mining company to the extent of $500,000. William Cressey was caught in the slide and iustantly killed, and William Albright and a man by the name of Stickney we;e injured, but not seriously. The Camp Bird mill, which had recently been installed at a cost of over $400,000; the reading room of the mill and 14 strands of tramway were carried down with the slide. In the evening a second snowslide occurred, which carried away the an gle station, the shed building of the Camp Bird dump, the blacksmith shop, storeroom where all the provisions were kept and two miles of the camp Bird tram. The destruction of the provision house cuts off the food supply. The 250 men employed in the mine, fearing otner slides might come, have taken refuge in the tunnel. x Preparations are being made to rescue the men or get provisions to them before the snow makes it impossible to reach them. In addition to those mentioned above, slides have run among the mountains around Ouray. The lines of communication have been interrupt ed to the following mines: The Bankers' National, employing 80 men; the Revenue, employing 200 men; the Atlas, employing 16 men; the Camp Bird, employing 250 men, and the San Pedro, employing 160 men. During the afternoon a slide took out the power line of the Animas Min ing company Later a second slide took three quarters of a mile of the Telluride power plant, which furnishes power to the Revenue, San Pedro and Atlas pines The Camp Bird clubhouse was one of the finest ever built for a similar purpose. Camp Bird is the mine sold by Thomas Walsh, the millionaire mine owner, several years ago, to an Eng lish company. Later Report. Six hundred miners employed in the various mines within a radins of 20 miles from Onray have been cnt off from all communication with the out side, and it is known that some lives have been lost. As many as 25 mines afe completely isolated. • The body of William J. Cressey, the Englishman who lost his life in* the slide at the Camp Bird mill, has been recovered. It is feared that as many as 20 men have lost their lives in the slide, but the exact number will not be known for days. The damage may reach $1,- 000,000. It is said there is 60 feet of snow at the high tower of the tramway of the Camp Bird,and the snow is deep all along the route of the tramway. » In the Imogene basin the snow is 150 to 300 feet deep. This will prevent work on the reconstruottion of the tramway for several weeks. Machinery for rebuilding the mill and materials for the buildings can not be taken np during the present condition of the road.
