Denver, Dec. q. The severe snow-
storm, which hud completely tied up
all forms of business in Denver and
Central Colorado, had ended, accord
ing to the weather bureau here, and
clear but colder weather was fore
casted. With freezing weather came
anxiety as' to the maintenance of tele
graph and telephone communication,
which alone saved Denver from absolute-isolation
for twenty-four hours.
Tiie total 'amount of snowfall in the
storm was given, officially, at 43.5

Denver lias been placed under vir

One of the greatest hardships as
companying the storm was the ex
treme shortage of coal. Oilef of the
largest hotels in Denver has been
forced to close. Office buildings have
exhausted their supply of fuel . and

Two stage coaches near Boulder and
one near Hnena Vista are lost, and it
is feared the drivers and the occu
pants, if the coaches carried any pas

Trnidad mining district, where 'mar
tial law is in existence, the tents of
both the soldiers and the coal mine
strikers are absolutely isolated. Many
of the tents, at the time communica
tion was last obtainable from there,
had been blown down, and the suffer
ing was said to be intense.
Throughout this state buildings in
practically every town have collapsed
from weight of the snow. The Foster
building, in Denver, was flooded by
the bursting of a water reservoir on
the roof, and hundreds of offices suf
fered great damage. The roof of the
First Haptist Church caved in, and
twenty persons were submerged. All
