Nothing Like It Ever Known at That Interesting Town— Deuver Catches It Heavily Hud It Costs Her $1OO.OOO Already— Trains in All Directions Blocked—Nebraska Also "Under the Weather," Which, 14 Coming East Rapidly. Cripple Creek, Colo., Oct. 27.—Not in years has there been such a blizzard here as that which prevails at the present time. High winds that come in streaks like waves of a typhoon are drifting the snow that mafce sidewalks in places almost impassable. Traffic on railroads is suspended and telephone wires are down. Canons are choked with snow and it is impossible to see 100 feet on account o£ the blinding storm. Considerable damage to property has occurred. Mining operations are seriously impeded by the storm which has been raffing fourteen hours and continues furiously with no sign of abatement soon. The weather is very cold and it is feared there> will be great suffering among- the poor. Costly Storm for Colorado'! Capital. Denver, Oct. 27.—Aside from the-tremendous Inconvenience caused the public and private interests the storm of Monday night and yesterday has wrought an intrinsic damage in the city of Denver and its suburbs that is conservatively estimated to be in excess of $100,000. Of course should the storm continue several days the amount will multiply many times. The estimate of damage Includes only the semi-public concerns, such as the electric light, telephone, telegraph and street car companies. It is to the wires and poles that the greatest harm has been done. City Electrician Stern said yesterday afternoon that probably 1,000 poles were down in Denver alone and upward of 4,000 miles of wires. General Manager Field, cf the Colorado Telephone company, estimated the present damage to Its system at $20,000. It would be greater, he said, but for the fact that in the central portion of the city the company had recently placed many of its wires under ground. Railway Travel Nearly Paralyzed. With the exception of the Rock Island the Kansas Pacific, the Colorado Central and the Julesburg and South Park branches of the gulf road, railroads leading intoDenver were completely blocked all yesterday. Snow plows were brought into active service on all lines, but the tracks became covered with snow again soon after they were cleared. The storm ivas most severe, and the greatest trou- _ble was experienced by the rai:roads between Denver and Pueblo. All freight trains were annulled to enable the roads to handle passengers without any more delay than is absolutely necessary. Railroad reports showed that the storm was general throughout theeastern half and a section of the northern part of this state, the southern part of Wyoming, the northeastern part of Utah and the western halves of Nebraska and Kansas. Could Not See Across the Street. A message from Colorado Springs stated that the snow and sleet were blowing so furiously there that is waa impossible to see across the street. The storm came so suddenly that ranchmen did not have an opportunity to shelter their stock, but the fall in temperature is not considered by expert's great enough to endanger the lives of cattle. The city was in darkness last night, as the mayor compelled the electric light company to cut off its circuits on account of their dangerous condition. The health department is of the opinion that the storm will prove of inestimable benefit in killing the late germs of disease. RAIN, WIND, SNOW AND SLEET. Nebraska and South Dakota In the GrMp of a Damp Blizzard. Omaha, Oct. 27.—Word was received last night from many points In Nebraska and South Dakota to the effect that the storm of snow, sleet and rain that has been traveling- eastward for twenty- four hours still continues. The Burlington trains, are delayed and the Rock Island trains between Lyman and Colorado Springs, Colo., are blockaded. East of Grand Island, along the Union Pacific, the storm is rain; west of there it is mingled snow and sleet. On the Elkhorn line the snow turns to rain cast of Long Pine. So far the railroads have been only slightly hampered by the storm. At Julesburg, on the Union Pacific, two engines collided in the blinding snow, doing but slight damage. The fireman of one suffered a broken leg. The worst feature of the storm is the high wind, which is playing havoc with the telegraph wires; communication is badly interrupted and in many places Is cut off entirely. In South Dakota the same conditions prevail. A message from Huron says that rain that fell there all day turned to snow at nightfall and still continues. From Miller, Aberdeen, Sioux Falls, and Mitchell similar dispatches are received. No rain has yet fallen in Omaha, but the approach of the storm is manifest by a rapid fall in the temperature and 8. stiff gale from the north. Chamberlain. S. D., Oct 27.—Rain which had been steadily falling for fifteen hours yesterday morning turned to snow, which fell heavily all day, accompanied by a severe northwest wind. The snow is very moist. Many cattle are not provided with shelter and It is more severe on them than the worst storms in the middle of winter, because the snow sticks to them and thoroughly chills them. Sidney. Neb., Oct. 27.— last night «. genuine blizzard was raging"hete, snow falling rapidly, accompanied by a. high northerly wind'. It was not extremely noli, but-the tisftvy .fay .of •trong "wind made tne storm very severe on stock. Nearly all the trains are abandoned. Reports from Benkelman and Holdredge indicate that the storm Is moving rapidly eastward. Pueblo, Colo., Oct. 27.—High wind and Bnow over a wid.e range of country north and south of Pueblo since 3 o'clock yesterday morning have quite effectually tied up the railways running into here. Mlle after mlrt of telegraph wires are blown down. In Pueblo telegraph, telephone, electric light and trolley wires have suffered severely, scores of poles and trees being blown down. Little snow fell, but -the wind attained a velocity of fifty-six miles from the north at 11:15 o'clock a. m. and blew down all the government weather bureau instruments. THERE ARE TWENTY KNOWN DEAD. One Slore Body Found in the Wreck on the New York Central. Garrison, X T., Oct. 27.—Twenty lives are now known to have been lost in Sunday's accident on the New York Central railroad, and eighteen bodies have been found. The body of an unknown man was recovered yesterday, as well as that of the fireman. The day coach of the Ill-fated train was raised and in it was found a victim not hitherto included in the list of dead. The engine was also brought to the surface, and with it the body of Fireman John Q. Tompkins tightly wedged between two masses of iron. The body found, the seventeenth since the wreck and the twentieth known victim, -was that of a man 35 years of &ge, dark. with a dark, short moustache. He was dressed in a gray woolen shirt, dark blue vest and trousers, a black necktie and yellow socks. The shoes had been removed and so had the coat and it was evident that the man had been sleeping when death came. In one of the pockets of the vest was a wallet containing six J10 bills, a |2 bill and a casualty insurance company ticket, siuch as is sold at railroad stations. It was made out for the usual sum of $2,500 in case of death, but very curiously the name or rather the last namesot? bothpayerand beneficiary were missing. The card read so far as could be deciphered "Ike R" as the purchaser's name and "Mrs. E" as the person to whom it waa to be paid. His name was learned later. It was Isaac Ruttenberg, of Cleveland, O. The express car was also raised and both safes found all right, with all the valuables except a small package of jewelry. SQUAW FIRES A FATAL SHOT. It Hits No One, but Starts a Fusillade That Kills Several Indians. Hifle, Colo., Oct. 2".—Sheriff Wilber sent a message here Monday night from Meeker with dispatches from Game Warden Wilcox, stating that he had had a. fight with Indians whom he was trying to arrest, and that four or five of the latter were killed. The messenger stated that Warden Wilcox had gone to Lily Park to arrest some Indians who had been reported as killing game. Warden Wiicox took a posse of seven or eight men and went to Lily Park, which is about thirty miles north of Meeker, and found quite a large encampment of Indians. He went up to the camp and was trying- to induce he Indians to move back to the reservation when a squaw in the outfit fired a shot at the officers. In the excitement which followed Captain Shaw, of Bear River, was struck a stunning blow on the head with the butt of a gun in the hands of one of the Indian's. The officers, thinking they were about to be murdered, opened fire on the Indians, who immediately took to the brush in the direction of their reservation. Sheriff Wilber, of Meeker, to whom word was at once sent, took a posse and started for the scene of the^troubi* •Will Fight Thai; Siileage Txir.
