Charley (5 roen, u worthless negro, lias been sold in Leadvillc under the vagrant act. It is so cold on the top of the Divide hear Silverton that water connot bo made to boil. The winter in the Black Hills has set in earlier th in usual, and the hay crop is lighter than for years. There is every prospects of a famine. The Union Pacific Telegraph Company has opened an office in Denver and will work with the K. P. and Union Pacific lines and operate in connection with the American Union company. The court house at Fairplay, Colorado, caught fire on the night of the 23th but about 100 men quickly formed an im promptu fire department and extinguish ed the flames with only slight damages resulting. Dome) río Domínguez was hanged at Prcscott, Arizona, on the 20th. Ho was but 17 years old. This is the first legal execution in the territory, though it is known that four men have been lynched and eleven other rough characters, who have suddenly disappeared at vaiious times, are supposed to have been hung. Piich discoveries of gold and silver have been made in the southwestern part of the Indian Teni ory, occupied by sev eral wild tribes. A mining company has' been organized under the presidency oí J) . Robert Wilson, of Texas, who has ex plored the gold and silver mines of Cen tral A rica, and who equipped expedi tion in search of Livingstone. Discussing the Chrysolite fire and its singular prolongation, the Leadvillc Democrat says: "If the management would escape severe criticism and dam aging suspicion, it must throw off its impenetrable veil of secrecy, and invite tho co-operation of men skilled in con tending with such underground disasters as the one which has overtaken this great property. The Holland Mining Company, of Pi ma county, Arizona, have started up their thirty ton smelter and the same is working very satisfactorily, The com pany have just purchased two iron mines in the vicinity 'or the purpose of obtain ing ílux. Tho Alta mining company, same district, will soon begin the erection of a mill. Negotiations are pending for the erection of two sixty ton smelters at Luttrell City for working the ores of the Pool mines, recently purchased by iNew York and Virginia parties for $500.000. A few days ago a terrible accident oc curred on the Kokomo extension of the D. & 11. G. II. P., three quarters of a mile from Chalk Ranch. About sixty men were at w rk shoveling off the snow that had fallen on the- grade at a point where the road is slightly circular, form ing the section of a huge ring. On one s'.de the mountain rises precipitously, an .1 on the other, at a distance of several h mdrul yards of level ground, runs the creek that traverses the canon. Sudden ly a gigantic roar was heard, and looking up the men saw an enormous avalanche of snow, three hundred yar's wide and of unknown depth sweeping down on them. Coming upon them, it lifted the track and buried it and the workmen, and dashed Into the creek. Tho track for a distance of a quarter of a mile was torn up and the men injured by flying iron. Thirty workmen were injured, nineteen of them seriously. Only one was killed but several may yet die. A prospecting party consisting of C. II. Eaton, Thomas Gray, James Frazer, William tSanduls and Joseph Nelson, set out from Georgetown, Col., some time ago with the intention of going across the country to Nor h Park, expecting to get in before the winter sh,,uld set in n earnest, and to spend the winter in the park. The route chosen, that through Middle Park, involved the crossing of the Continental divide twice. The deep snows which so soon cam upon the party blinded the trails, and the snow being fresh and unfrozen and also deep, progress was well-nigh imposible. Their provisions were soon exhausted. Death seemed to stare them in the face from the start. Tney were crossing the divide between Jack and Illinois creeks, where they found the snow deep and treacher ous. They passed along wilth all the caution possible, but despite their earnest effort to prevent a slide, the gre-it mass of snow pulled loose from the mountain and in a twinkling the entire party found themselves off their feet, covered with snow and flying pell-mell down the great, steep hillside for a distance of 500 feet. Jiut one of the unfortunate young men Aclson. escaped unhurt. andéis was fearfully shaken up and bruised, Frazer had bis kit thigh brokeu in two places, while Eaton and Fry were killed out right. Nelson was the only man who was left in a condition to get about with any case, though he was given some assistance by Pandéis. An Illinois woman gave birth to eleven children at four births.
